The screenplay is by Æneas MacKenzie,Wally Kline, and Lenore J. Coffee.

VA Treatment For All

The VA is the poster child for Big Government. Anyone who has ever dealt with government bureaucracy knows hell. The primary function of the bureaucrat is to move files from one domain to another, using ironclad protocols that are frequently at odds with reality. The bureaucracy is an ecosystem dedicated to self-preservation. The services the […]

The True Meaning of the Obama Spielberg Holocaust Party

Daniel Greenfield reminds us that Jewish history repeats itself with tragic consequences because so-called Jewish leaders are too busy marinating in their liberal pieties to notice that they are enabling the mass murder of their own people. Last summer, Obama had forced Israel to release the murderer of Isaac Rotenburg, an elderly Holocaust survivor who had […]

Hollywood Hat Game

There was a time when wearing a hat was  de rigueur. Fine millinery was considered a sign of good taste, good breeding, and good fashion. Hollywood actresses were rarely seen in public without hat, gloves and a designer outfit. Those were the days when Hollywood insisted on projecting style and glamour. Of course, with the destruction […]

9/11 Museum Refuses to Censor Al-Qaeda Film

It’s rare that Seraphic Secret gets to report good news. But apparently, the liberals who wrote the copy for the 9-11 Museum film are holding firm against the terrorist enablers who wish to deny reality and rewrite history by deleting any reference to the Islamist terrorists who perpetrated the 9-11 atrocity. While we’re discussing the […]

Spielberg Honors Obama’s Lies About Jew-Hatred

Hollywood loves handing out awards. Once upon a time, Oscar was the only game in town. Then the Emmy appeared. Okay, I get it. Awards for movies. Awards for television. Makes sense. But now we are engulfed in an orgy of award ceremonies that render meaningless the achievement an award is supposed to signify. In […]

Hillary’s State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists

Ready for Hillary. That’s the not-so-catchy Hillary for POTUS rallying cry. Regarding the Benghazi atrocity, Hillary in full hysteric mode, screeched: “What difference does it make?” Well, it makes no difference if you—like your husband—regard truth as an malleable. It makes a difference because the families of those slain deserve to know why their loved […]

White House Benghazi E-mail Equivalent to Nixon Tapes

The scandals that characterize the Obama regime are unique in their mind-boggling numbers, and the manner in which the Pratetorian media have refused to report, much less investigate, the most corrupt administration in American history. The Benghazi atrocity most certainly leads directly into the Oval Office. That’s why the Democrats are doing everything to avoid […]

Israel Independence Day 2014

The modern state of Israel celebrates its 66th anniversary today. What are we feeling? There is joy and there is hope. But there is also an inescapable feeling of dread.
