Aaron Goldstein

Aaron Goldstein began his political life as a socialist. But following the attacks of September 11, 2001, he gradually embraced the wisdom of conservatism. He uses his poetic license (which has been suspended on numerous occasions) to write about politics, music, clam chowder and anything else he darn well pleases. Born in Canada, Aaron has lived in Boston for over a decade.

Yes, There is a Hillary Standard

 

In the midst of putting together my new article highlighting the 10 reasons why I will never vote for Hillary Clinton, I watched 60 Minutes interview of Hillary and running mate Tim Kaine. It was the usual stuff. Hillary took responsibility for Benghazi but then said it wasn’t her ball to carry. She took responsibility […]

I Believe The White Sox Have More Than Throwback Jerseys For Sale

 

I think it is safe to say that Chris Sale has pitched his last game in a Chicago White Sox uniform. The Chisox suspended the lanky left-hander for five days following a clubhouse incident yesterday where he cut up throwback jerseys from 1976 rendering them unwearable for yesterday’s game against the Detroit Tigers which Sale […]

Debbie W.S. Resigns Under Fire as DNC Chair

 

Well, this was long overdue. On the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz will resign from her duties at the conclusion of the convention. She will be succeeded by former DNC Chair and current CNN panelist Donna Brazile. While Wasserman-Schultz will open and close the convention, Ohio Democratic Congresswoman Marcia Fudge will chair […]

First It Was Killer Bathtubs, Now It’s Killer Air Conditioners

 

Remember when President Obama said that more Americans die in bathtubs than at the hands of terrorists? Well, now Secretary of State John Kerry has taken it a step further by adding air conditioners to the list. Kerry is in Vienna as the 1987 Montreal Protocol is being amended where it concerns Hyrdofluorocarbons (HFC) found […]

Hillary Raises Kaine

 

So Virginia Senator Tim Kaine is Hillary Clinton’s number two. I can’t imagine that the Bernie Sanders crowd is too thrilled with this pick. But not so annoyed as to vote for Donald Trump. But until I read Richard Kelsey’s piece on Kaine, I did not know he could speak Spanish fluently. It could compensate […]

Obama Talks About Munich Terror Attacks, Makes Jokes

 

Should we really be surprised that President Obama would crack a joke about his daughter Malia leaving home for college while describing an Islamic terrorist attack (without using the world Islamic of course)? No more than we should be surprised at Obama going for a round of golf after talking about ISIS beheading James Foley. […]

Would David Duke’s Senate Candidacy Be Possible Without The Rise of Trump?

 

So former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke has announced a bid for the U.S. Senate. What’s old is new again. It’s been nearly 25 years since Duke was defeated as a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Louisiana in no small part due to the efforts of our old friend Quin Hillyer. How Duke fares in his […]

As of this writing, the number of fatalities are unknown. The OEZ is situated near Munich’s Olympic Stadium where 11 Israeli athletes were murdered by Palestinian terrorists during […]

Trump Did Himself No Harm Tonight

 

Donald Trump’s acceptance speech was a wee bit too long, but I don’t think he did anything to hurt himself tonight. He was scripted, self-contained and made no mention of Ted Cruz. Of course, I didn’t buy what he was saying. It’s kind of hard to take Trump seriously when he decries Obama for not […]

Trump’s Foreign Policy Rewards Our Enemies & Punishes Our Friends

 

Reading Donald Trump’s foreign policy interview with David E. Sanger and Maggie Haberman of The New York Times did nothing to inspire my confidence in the Republican nominee. I am tempted to say that Trump’s knowledge of foreign policy is that of a fourth grader, but that would be insulting to your average fourth grader. […]
