    Lucianne Goldberg, one of the pivotal figures in the Monica Lewinsky affair that rocked Bill Clinton’s second term in office, predicts this presidential election season will be a “highly sexed” campaign due to the reemergence of Clinton’s sex accusers. Goldberg, a literary agent at the time of the Lewinsky affair, was in touch with Clinton’s publicly known accusers and alleged mistresses. Regarding those accusers, Goldberg asserted, “I believed every one of these women. … They were telling you the truth.”

    It’s the End of the Line for GOP as We Know It By JONAH GOLDBERG March 23, 2016 (snip) Nominating Donald Trump will wreck the Republican party as we know it. Over the weekend, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus showed the first public signs of acceptance about what’s in store for the party. He finally acknowledged that the Republican nominee was probably going to be determined on the convention floor in Cleveland. Priebus explained, rightly, that the rules are the rules, and that if Trump can’t secure the required 1,237 delegates before Cleveland, it’s anyone’s game. “This is a...

    Obama became annoyed... President Obama’s favorite journalist Jeffrey Goldberg made headlines in Israel when The Atlantic published his latest article about the President. In his lengthy piece titled “The Obama Doctrine,” Goldberg gave an overview of Obama’s foreign policy and discussed the President’s disillusionment with the attempts to change the Middle East for the better. Yes, Obama really thought that his policies in this problematic region would bring a positive change when he entered the White House at the beginning of 2008. “This is the moment we must help answer the call for a new dawn in the Middle East,”...

    Dear Reader (including those of you born in Canada), I guess we should start there. I find this birther stuff to be a lot like women's prison movies: compelling, entertaining, and totally ridiculous. Other than the presidency, there's no place in American life where the distinction between "naturalized" and "natural-born" citizenship matters. But imagine if it did? Imagine that your American-born mother just happened to give birth to you in Canada or Belize while on vacation. Your American-born mom and dad bring you home days later and raise you exactly as they would have had they been in Cleveland the...

    Who lost the libertarians?” It’s a question you hear a lot from conservatives of late. The reason should be obvious to anyone who has followed the conservative movement’s internecine intellectual frictions over the last decade — or decades. Self-described libertarians are a minority, even among the ranks of people one could properly describe as libertarian. On many, or even most, contentious public-policy issues — economics, gun rights, health care, free speech, regulation, constitutional interpretation — most support for the libertarian position actually comes from people who describe themselves as conservatives. In other words, conservatives tend to be libertarian, but libertarians...

Asked whether he’s concerned about gun violence in America, Trump responded that he’s a “big Second Amendment person.” And when Tur asked whether he owns a gun, the following exchange ensued: TRUMP: I have the license to have a gun, yes, I do. TUR: Do you own one? TRUMP: Yes, I...

    In news only slightly more surprising than this morning's sunrise, Hillary Rodham Clinton announced she is running for president again. The announcement came in the form of a clever video in which Clinton says she wants to be a champion for "everyday Americans" -- an obviously focus-grouped term intended to replace "middle class." I like it, but unless they're very careful, "everyday" has a condescending tinge that could backfire (synonyms include: "dull," "unexceptional" and "commonplace"). One can already imagine a "Saturday Night Live" version of Clinton looking out the window of her private jet: "Wow, those everyday Americans look like...

The View star expressed skepticism today about allegations by Barbara Bowman that the 77-year-old comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1985. Ms Bowman said that she went to a lawyer, who laughed at her when she tried to say that Cosby had sexually assaulted her multiple times when she was an aspiring actress and model. Goldberg asked why Ms Bowman didn't go to the authorities for proof that she was raped.

In the face of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s duplicity with regard to Ukraine and Putin’s increasingly aggressive stance towards the West that harkens back to the Cold War, the Obama administration is deluding itself into thinking that it can trust Putin to keep his word on ensuring that much of Iran’s uranium stockpile is converted into a relatively harmless end product.

    Hannah Arendt coined the term “the banality of evil” to describe the galling normalcy of Nazi mass-murderer Adolf Eichmann. Covering his trial in Jerusalem, she described Eichmann as less a cartoonish villain than a dull, remorseless, paper-pushing functionary just “doing his job.” The phrase “banality of evil” was instantly controversial, largely because it was misunderstood. Arendt was not trying to minimize Nazism’s evil but to capture its enormity. The staggering moral horror of the Holocaust was that it made complicity “normal.” Liquidating the Jews was not just the stuff of mobs and demagogues but of bureaucracies and bureaucrats.

Domestically, meanwhile, the right was largely a "leave me alone coalition": Religious and traditional conservatives, overtaxed businessmen, Western libertarians, and others fed up with government social engineering and economic folly.

The similarities between Obama and jihadis are striking — and incendiary. Just as Jehovah’s Witnesses and conservative, Bible-believing Christians recognize each other as irreconcilable enemies, Obama and the lunatics who would impose a universal caliphate know each other well — and hate each other with a steady, instinctive ferocity. Each sect knows how steadfast and dangerous the other is because each knows itself. Call it the fear/hatred of the twin. That’s very different from the emotions...

It’s a great concept; on paper it makes perfect sense. But once you put a human being in power, it shifts. We saw it in Russia; we’ve seen it all over the world.” Not surprisingly, this earned Goldberg some criticism. Yet, to be fair, her sentiment is a common one. It’s that supposedly enlightened, nuanced opinion stating that communism works great in theory — it’s...

It’s tough to argue with that. President Obama’s approval ratings are not good and most Americans think we’re on the wrong track.

    I guess they can’t help it, but some bestselling rightwing authors have surprising tastes. Ann Coulter: Louis Vuitton | Coulter (above) likes making fun of those pro-appeasement Frenchmen, but she’s also been caught on camera strolling around the Hamptons with her Louis Vuitton bag, and can’t resist French restaurants, where she orders “Freedom Fries” – just to stir the pot, our guess. Jonah Goldberg: Whole Foods | But thankfully he doesn’t have a man bag, or drive a pious Prius, to the best of our knowledge. Whole Foods “where I shop frequently, by the way” admits Goldberg in Liberal Fascism...
  • Bernard Goldberg: I Have Natural Born Citizen Fatigue

    "Who Is A “Natural Born Citizen”? So I’m on the O’Reilly Factor and I say if the Republicans don’t put Marco Rubio on their national ticket they need to get their heads examined. Such is my regard for the freshman senator from Florida. What followed were emails from people who told me that Rubio can’t be vice president because the Constitution says only “natural born citizens” can be president or vice president, and he doesn’t fit the description. Some went a tad further. Ray said I need to “wake up.” Gregor – who signed his name “American by Birth –...

    For more than a decade, Michael Goldberg tricked hundreds of investors into giving him more than $100 million on a promise of fat profits on diamonds and distressed properties. He turned himself in to authorities in 2009 and pleaded guilty last year to wire fraud charges in connection with the Ponzi scheme. But after his arrest, prosecutors say Goldberg tried to lure investors on a promise of big profits on gold, only this time a prostitute named Rain who was solicited to invest alerted authorities. Goldberg, a 40-year-old former Wethersfield resident, faces more than 12 to 15 years in prison...

    >My former canon law professor, Dr. Ed Peters—who also has a degree in civil law (yeah, he's pretty smart)—has been taken to task by the brilliant scholars and intellectual lights of "The View". Ken Shepherd of Newsbusters writes: Discussing how Catholic canon law advisor Dr. Edward Peters has declared that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) committed an "objectively sacrilegious" act that "produces grave scandal" by receiving Communion on January 2, almost every panelist on ABC gabfest "The View" today rebuked the scholar for his pronouncement. ..."What would Jesus do?" View moderator Whoopi Goldberg asked, answering her own question by...

  • Goldberg to mainstream media--'shut the hell up!'

    Fox News analyst and former CBS News correspondent Bernard Goldberg has a message for the mainstream media concerning their coverage of the Tuscon shooting--'shut the hell up!' Goldberg made the comment last evening on Bill O'Reilly's show on Fox. O'Reilly had already castigated the mainstream media for joining in the Leftwing chorus of blaming conservatives for the massacre that killed a Federal judge and wounded a U.S. Congresswoman, among others. As a nightly guest on The O'Reilly Factor, Goldberg exposes bias inherent in the news reporting of the media. Goldberg had been part of CBS News under former anchor Dan...

    Fox News [video] ^ | Jan. 10, 2011
    Bernie Goldberg, author of the highly acclaimed and best selling "Bias," knows liberal MSM bias better than anyone because for years he worked among them and witnessed this bias expressed in both how they slanted news and how they selectively ignored or downplayed news that didn't fit into the leftist political platform. In this video he explains why the current blatant and shameless attempt to politicize the recent murders and woundings of people in Arizona is the most "shallow, thoughtless, agenda-driven nonsense" he's yet seen in his long journalistic career. He cites as prime example the Democratic Sheriff (Clarence Dupnik)...
