Flashback: Los Angeles Riots 20 Years Ago

This is the 20th anniversary of the Rodney King riots. Those days and nights are imprinted in my memory as vividly as a movie. Thus, I am republishing my three-part series about the LA Riots of 1992 in which Karen and I and the children were caught. We were unarmed, helpless save our wits. The […]

Vogue Scrubs Article Praising Assad… But Seraphic Secret Has Not

On February 25, 2011 the ultra liberal, ultra chic, ultar amoral Vogue magazine published a fawning profile of Syria’s Asma al-Assad, wife of dictator Bashar al-Assad, who can only be described as a totalitarian butcher. In the past year his regime has murdered at least 11,000 of his own people. On March 2, 2011, Seraphic […]

Hollywood: A Dog’s Life

During Hollywood’s golden era studio photographers churned out thousands of photographs that created the iconography of glamour by which Hollywood stars were defined. There was a library of poses and props that photographers used in order to create and refine particular images. Who can forget Hurrell’s shimmering portrait of Jean Harlow in a skin-tight white […]

Israel: Birth of a Nation

Today is Israel’s Independence Day. Israel was born sixty-four years ago. Like the Beatles, I used to think that 64 is very old. But the years and experience have given me some measure of wisdom and I know that for a nation state sixty-four is just out of infancy. From the moment Israel was born […]

Alabama Man In Critical Condition After Mob (Who Would Look Like Obama’s Sons) Viciously Beat Him Yelling “Now That’s Justice For Trayvon.”

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q94GC3EdGZc[/youtube]   No expressions of outrage from Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. The reasoning is simple and simple-minded: according to liberal gospel blacks cannot be racists, only victims. And besides, the victim’s ancestors were probably slave holders so it’s, y’know, karma. Witness social justice in all its glory. MOBILE, Alabama (WKRG) — […]

“Land of Promise,” 1924 Silent Film About Zionist Pioneers

When writing about movies, Seraphic Secret usually focuses on Hollywood. But this silent film, “Banim Bonim” Land of Promise, is a documentary/travelogue from 1924 that is fascinating. The second reel is missing, but it’s still 41 minutes long. Take a look, and then some comments. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRMstBUPeMU[/youtube] As with most documentaries, the film was carefully constructed […]

Thug Who Looks Just Like Obama’s Son (If He Had One) Beats White Man Because of Trayvon Martin

The mainstream media are not terribly interested in this story. That’s because their outrage is only a tactic in the liberal war against Conservatives. Liberals are not really upset about Trayvon Martin’s death. They only view Martin as a prop in their kabuki theater. To be moral one must have consistent values. But liberals have […]

The Devil’s Arithmetic

Today is Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Memorial Day. I’m posting Part I of my movie, The Devil’s Arithmetic for viewing. The film stars Kirsten Dunst and the late Brittany Murphy in spectacular performances. The rest of the film is available, but I’d greatly appreciate it if you ordered the DVD and gave it to friends, schools […]

Justice Norwegian Style

Anders Behring Breivik murdered 77 people. In court, he said: “I would have done it again.” One of the judges on the Breivik panel said that “the death penalty is the only just thing to do in this case.” This judge was immediately removed from the case. Breivik is not insane. But Norwegian justice is.

Seraphic Secret’s Diplomatic Solution to the Arab Israeli Conflict

In light of yesterday’s post regarding murderous, genocidal peace movements, Seraphic Secret is reminded of the Peace Now! bumper stickers that blighted the Israeli landscape for too many years. Peace Now, a brain dead movement, delivered intellectual collapse through Oslo and then death and destruction via Arab Muslim pogroms against the Jewish people. As a […]

How Peace Movements Commit Murder and Genocide

To any clear thinking person it should be obvious that war is the final arbiter of all great conflicts. Those who speak of negotiated peace speak of fiction. The great world wars have made this world what it is today, for better or ill, and there are numerous lessons to be learned regarding current geo-political […]

Egyptian TV: “Jews Have “Satanic Plan To Dominate The World…”

Passover is over. But what’s a day in the Arab Muslim world without a blood libel. In case you haven’t received the memo, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a notorious Tzarist forgery. This Egyptian program is not an anomaly in the Arab Muslim world. In fact, Hamas, the genocidal yearning terrorists who […]

Notable War Movies, Russian and Finnish

Seraphic Secret watches movies in thematic clusters. Last year I concentrated on the work of specific actors, among them: Clara Bow, John Gilbert, Mary Nolan, Lon Chaney, Esther Ralston and, adolescent sigh, Brigitte Bardot. For the past few  weeks I’ve been screening war movies, with an emphasis on films from Russia and Finland. World War […]

Pat Condell: Israel and the UN

The one and only Pat Condell on Obama’s go-to international community the United Nations and the Jew-hatred that animates that sewer. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpXMe_R2BZk&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]

Hamas and Fatah Agree: Kill All the Jews

Ever since Seraphic Secret was founded in May 2004, we have patiently explained the not-so-secret facts regarding the Middle East: 1. The Muslim-Israeli conflict has nothing to do with national boundaries. 2. Muslims consider the entire state of Israel an “occupied settlement.” 3. The only differences between Hamas and Fatah are tactical. Hamas want the […]

Going Medieval: Obama Welcomes the Barbarians Into the White House

The other day was a turning point in American history. There were no banner headlines to mark the occasion. Editorial pages hardly took notice. But a Rubicon has been passed. That moment occurred when President Obama welcomed the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood into the White House. By rolling out the red carpet Obama legitimized terrorism. The […]

Obama’s Biggest Jewish Donors are Turning on Him, Labeling Him a “Sociopath”

We disagree with notion that Obama is a sociopath. He’s a progressive leftist, a post-modern Democrat, and that translates  into a virulently anti-Israel ideology if not outright Jew-hatred. The Democrats are no longer the political party of Henry “Scoop” Jackson, Daniel Moynihan, or even John and Robert Kennedy. The Dems have, in their Orwellian parlance, […]

Friday Fashion: The Exodus Edition

On Passover the Jewish people are instructed to envision that they are experiencing the Exodus from Egypt. During the Passover seder (meal) we reenact—through sacred memory animated by ritual—the passage from bondage to slavery. The Torah tells us that the Jews left Egypt with the spoils of their oppressors—compensation for 400 years of cruelty. Thus, […]
