Canada Revokes Islamic Society of North America’s Tax Exempt Status For Support Of Terrorism

In August 2013, President Obama sent a gushy greeting to the Islamic Society of North America. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnS9-pm8vCY[/youtube] Obama’s outreach lends a cloak of respectability to IslamoNazis. Because, like CAIR, the ISNA is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood, whose, ahem, charities, support international Islamic terror. You can pretty much follow one simple rule of thumb when you […]

Valley of the Modest Dolls

Seraphic Secret likes to follow trends in fashion. Our mission is to ignore the slutwear that parades as cutting edge design and focus instead on beautifully tailored outfits that are both flattering, ladylike, and modest. As always, we do not highlight pant suits; they are a crime against femininity. We are happy to report that […]

The Outrage Continues: Congressional Exemption From ObamaCare

Seraphic Secret has already expressed outrage at the special exemption for Congress and its staffers from ObamaCare. This exemption, we might add, also extends to the Justice Department, Federal Judges, the Supreme Court, and of course to Barack Hussein Obama and his immediate family. Thus, the political class have passed a law which they will […]

The IDF Units Who Will Play Key Role In Future Iran Strike

The only positive outcome of Obama’s disastrous handling of the Syrian portfolio is a new and unshakable confirmation in Israel — as well as in Great Britain, Japan, Poland,  Honduras and Mexico — that Obama is a deeply unreliable ally. As Iran’s charm offensive moves forward, it has become clear that Obama is desperate for any kind […]

Radio Interview With Seraphic Secret About Hollywood and Liberal Propaganda

Hollywood movies are the most powerful tools of social and political propaganda the world has ever known. Think about it: America wins wars only when Hollywood believes in them and puts itself squarely behind America’s war effort. During World War II, every studio in Hollywood backed the Allied effort against the Axis. Hollywood’s stars raised […]

Tough Dames, Tough Dialogue

Less is more. That’s the rule I follow when writing dialogue for one of my films. In truth, when writing a screenplay, I make every effort to draft scenes with no dialogue. Zip. Zero. Nada. Film is, or should be, primarily a visual medium where the story is told using images. But of course, dialogue […]

Obamacare: We Are All Equal, But Congress More Equal Than Others

Life under Communist/Socialist regimes proceeds along a simple but ruthless calculus of power: the political class does not live under the same laws as the rest of the people. Food shortages and famines are endemic under Socialism/Communism. But the ruling classes never stand on bread lines. Their children never starve to death. The Socialist/Communist elites […]

Yom Kippur, 2013

…In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and you shall not do any work … For on that day he shall provide atonement for you to cleanse you from all your sins before the L-RD. —Leviticus 16:29-30

Tough Guys, Tough Dialogue

The trick in writing dialogue for movies is to write as little as possible. Less is more. But when you do use dialogue, every word counts; every word a precious jewel that, ideally, delivers the proper balance of tone, characterization, and story. Here are a few examples of brilliant dialogue where we learn everything we […]

12 Years After 9-11

Twelve years after the American homeland was attacked by Muslim terrorists, Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism, is sending entire battalions to Syria to prop up Assad’s regime. Twelve years after 9/11, Barack Obama’s reset button with Russia has finally yielded what the radical left in America has always wanted: a diminution of American […]

The Story of the Jews

Even on the eve of destruction, Jews took to heart a verse from the Torah (Deut 30:19) “I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse, therefore choose life that you and your descendants may live.” This is the story of how Jews lived amidst Muslims and Christians, and how they tried to […]

Israel’s Secret Doctors In Syria

Obama is clueless. His red line reminds me of the chalk marks my children used to inscribe in the sidewalk in front of Casa Avrech. After a few days, sunlight and water from the sprinklers faded the lines into nothingness. Now, Obama seeks to save credibility by going to Congress, by begging our allies for […]

Rosh Hashanah 5744: Shofar, Satchmo, and Sculpture

He is the Satchmo of the shofar. When my friend G. puts his lips to the narrow end of a shofar, and lets loose with the traditional sequence of  blasts—Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah—the notes slice the air, hang and vibrate, then penetrate skin and bone—to the very soul. Those fortunate enough to hear G. blow the […]

Christian Bakers Who Refused Cake Order For Gay Wedding Forced To Close Shop

  The left has one overriding passion: to destroy the nuclear family. In place of the family, the left wants government, totalitarian government dressed up as a “people’s democracy.” The move to redefine marriage is also a direct assault on religious traditions. Once you understand that everything the left believes and does is designed to […]

Hollywood on Hollywood

Labor Day affords us the opportunity to reflect on work, our jobs, present and past. Good jobs, bad jobs, we’ve all had our share of both. Work should set you free. Honest labor puts money in your pocket which allows you to spend that money as you see fit. Ideally, work infuses the individual with […]
