Hollywood Stars and Cars: I Drive Therefore I am

America has long had a love affair with the automobile. Cars are the ultimate expression of form, function, fashion — and speed. But most of all the car represents freedom. Try and remember when you were a teenager yearning for your driver’s license so you could hop into daddy’s car and go, go, go. It […]

Obama Was Plotting Benghazi Cover Story Before Last Two Americans Were Dead

Last night, Charles Krauthammer asked the right questions and, it seems to us, made the correct assumptions about Obama’s role in BenghaziGate. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-vy8PSaz-Q[/youtube] I think there is a bigger story here that will in time come out. The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours. […]

Taking the Fifth in the Real World

It’s the middle of the night. Claire, a wife and mother, abruptly wakes up when her husband, Erik, stumbles noisily into the bedroom. Claire switches on the night light. “Erik? It’s four in the morning, where have you been?” “Had to work late.”

“Will No One Rid Me of This Troublesome Tea Party”

One after the other, Obama’s IRS officials step up and do what government bureaucrats do best: they spin, they obfuscate, they lie, and they cover their rear-ends.  We have been treated to the reality of big government: a mob of lawless bureaucrats drunk on their own power. These men and women, career government pencil pushers, […]

Another Day, Another IslamoNazi, Plus Flashback to the Jews Eisenhower and Roosevelt

Well, at least the so-called Palestinians, are openly declaring their ideology and genocidal intentions. Leftists, along with their Islamist buddies, rely on a well-rehearsed fiction—AKA lie—in order to excuse the Jew-hatred that is endemic in the Muslim world. They tell us that it’s not really Jew-hatred at work, rather, political opposition to “rascist, colonial Zionism.” […]

Death & Taxes: Welcome to Obamaland

In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes. We’ve heard this clever aphorism countless times, and nodded our heads in bleak recognition. And yet, have we ever really pondered the ghoulishness that equates taxes with mortality? Anyone who has ever been audited by the IRS—Seraphic Secret has been twice […]

Obama’s Lack of Leadership and Moral Accountability

Here’s Barack Hussein Obama reacting to the three scandals that are poised to engulf the balance of his second term: 1. Benghazi is a “sideshow.” 2. Political repression of Conservatives by the IRS  was committed by “low-level staffers.” 3. Regarding government wiretaps on the AP: “I’m shocked.”

It Can’t Happen Here

Seraphic Secret has a close friend who was born and lived in Communist Hungary until he and his family managed to escape to America in 1969. His tales of life under the iron fist of Communism are chilling: the intrusion of the party bureaucrats into every aspect of private life, the intimidation to conform to […]

Everything You Need to Know About the Media: Jason Collins 2,381 News Stories, Gosnell 115

Jason Collins, a bench warmer, comes out as gay, and the media feast on what is basically, a non-story. But abortionist Kermit Gosnell, an American Mengele, a man who practiced infanticide, is virtually ignored. The American media do not report news, they are left wing commissars who promote news items that support their ideological agenda. […]

Israel, Iran, Hizbullah, Syria… America Not So Much

Syria’s civil war is a standard Arab Muslim blood feud, pitting various clans and tribes against each other in ever-shifting, ever-widening, and ever-confusing configurations. Arab Muslim blood feuds are like Rube Goldberg devices, only drenched in blood, with a single audio loop of “Allahu Akbar.” Sunni, Shia and Alawite commit atrocities on a daily basis—so […]
