Joan Juliet Buck’s Blood-Soaked Sole

You will recall that on February 25, 2011, the  ultra-chic, ultra-liberal Vogue magazine, led by high-profile Obama supporter Anna Wintour, published a fawning profile of Syrian first lady Asma al-Assad by Joan Juliet Buck. So outrageous was Buck’s story that Seraphic Secret saved the article in the sure knowledge that Vogue would, sooner or later, be […]

The New, Improved Jew-Hatred: Jerusalem Denial

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh7MIXYoJ-o[/youtube]   Let us stipulate that Jerusalem is the eternal, undivided capital of Israel. If you give up Jerusalem you surrender Zion. Game. Set. Match. The Arab Muslims understand this all too well. Why do you think their propaganda is an unrelenting assault on Jewish history? But liberal Jews do not get it. Or if […]

Tisha B’Av, 2012

Today we observe Tisha B’Av, a solemn day of mourning and fasting in which we commemorate the destruction of the first and second Temples, both of which were destroyed on the ninth of Av. The first Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.; the second by the Romans in 70 C.E. Today is […]

Friday Photos: The Not So Glamorous Family

Hollywood’s Golden Age, from the 20’s to the late thirties, was a dream factory. And glamour was the dream that was sold in every frame of every film. Studios tightly controlled the image of the stars they groomed and promoted, presenting them as glittering jewels, untouched and unsullied by the daily concerns of ordinary life. […]

Preston Sturges’ Rules for Box Office Appeal

The other day a young screenwriter asked yours truly how I go about constructing a script. “I start at the end. I need to know my ending and resolution—two distinct narrative end-points—before I start writing the script.” The young screenwriter asked if my story ideas start with character or plot. “Sometimes character, sometimes plot. A […]

Anal Jihad

London-Based Shiite Cleric Abdallah Al-Khilaf: Wahhabi Fatwa Permits Sodomy to Widen the Anus as a Means to Jihad —The Internet, Fadak TV (U.K.) – June 16, 2012 [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik5GZap_-_A[/youtube] Homosexuality and the rape of young boys is rampant among female-starved Arab Muslim men.

Colorado: Acts of Valor

One of my closest friends here in Los Angeles is a Holocaust survivor named Sol. As a teenager he saw his mother and baby sister sent to the crematoria by Josef Mengele. Over eighty members of Sol’s family were murdered by the Nazis. Sol and his brother Steve were sent on a death march in […]

Egyptian Candid Jew Camera

It’s been a terrible few days for Israel and America. In the wake of all the death and destruction in Bulgaria and Colorado it’s time for some, ahem, entertainment. From happy-go-lucky Egypt. In these clips the Egyptian producers inform their guests, candid camera style, that they are, in fact, on Israeli Television. To say that […]

The Colorado Atrocity

In the wake of the Colorado massacre Seraphic Secret has a few thoughts. The media consistently refer to the massacre as a tragedy. As our son Ariel ZT’L observed after 9-11, “Why do they keep calling it a tragedy? It’s an atrocity.” Death caused by flood, fire, earthquake, tsunami, traffic accident, these are tragedies. But murder […]

Friday Photos: Seraphic Secret’s Vacation

Karen and I slipped away to Yosemite for a brief vacation. In the old days, I used to shlep an SLR and half a dozen lenses. Now I just use my iPhone. The truth is the best camera is the one you use and my iPhone, for better or worse, is always there like an […]

Islamic Terror, Bulgaria, Israel and Obama

The suspected homicide bomber who massacred 7 people in Bulgaria—30 have been maimed—yesterday is pictured in this video released by the Bulgarian authorities. He is said to have carried a counterfeit American ID from Michigan. As you can see the backpack he wears is large enough to carry a substantial bomb. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E37c-RncXG8[/youtube] PM Benjamin Netanyahu […]

Who’s Your Daddy

President Obama’s “You didn’t build that” speech last week is highly revealing in several important ways. Departing from his usual reliance on the teleprompter, President Obama spoke extemporaneously. This is made quite obvious from a halting delivery that was sprinkled with stuttering “ums” and broken sentences. It’s also obvious that he was speaking to an […]

The Blame Game

The Ayatollah Khomeini informed the world that there is no humor in Islam. No kidding. This biting piece of political satire will, no doubt, fly over the heads of most Democrats—“Bush! Bush! Bush!”—because there is no irony in the Obama regime. Via Bookworm Room

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Can’t Name A Single Reason For Jews To Support Obama Except Abortion

In Kalooki Nights, the fine Jewish British novelist Howard Jacobson—whose work is akin to Jane Austen rather than the tedious Philip Roth to whom he is frequently compared—describes the type of secular post-modern Jew that has replaced traditional Jewish-Torah values with the false G-d of secular liberalism. In the novel the main character is describing […]

President Obama’s Brave New World

“If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Translation: Government takes your tax money, invests it in junk—Solyndra—and this is considered fair and compassionate. But private money invested in trying to rescue failing companies—Staples—is evil. You see Obama is attacking free enterprise, the private sector, in favor of […]

Hollywood Sells: Buy Me, Be Me

  Ever since there were movie stars there have been star product endorsements. Corporations and their advertising companies were quick to understand that those larger than life figures floating like angels on the silver screen were potent persuaders. Thus, the synergistic relationship between one product, the movie star, and a consumer product—cigarettes, perfume, makeup, whatever—was […]

Joan Bennett Wants You To Be Attractive

Besides starring in several noir classics, The Woman in the Window ( 1944), Scarlet Street (1945), Hollow Triumph (1948) and our favorite, The Reckless Moment (1949),  Joan Bennett delivered the most famous adulterer’s line of dialogue in Hollywood history. In 1951, Bennet’s marriage to producer Walter Wanger was on the rocks. Wanger’s distinguished career was […]

Seraphic Secret Pays Poll Tax to Apple

Outrageous. Yesterday, Karen and I stepped into the Apple retail store in Century City, purchased the nifty new iPad and the nice Apple salesman would not run our credit card without proof of I.D. I was wearing my yarmulke, so maybe Apple is, y’know, anti-Semitic.

Oops! U.S. “Overpaid” $14 Billion In Jobless Benefits

Seraphic Secret is in the movie business. Emphasis on the word business. Here’s how it works. Yours truly writes and produces a movie. If it makes a profit, it’s a success. Those involved prosper. If the film loses money, heads roll. Either way, there are consequences. Business measures itself through profit and loss. But the […]

The Jew Bush

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. ” “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly — it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” —Joseph Goebbels Blaming […]
