Hollywood — Play Ball!

Ever since Hollywood invented itself as a universal dream factory, movies about baseball were viewed as the perfect landscape in which to explore themes of loyalty, ambition, competition, and of course, love. More than any other sports genre, baseball movies have dominated the silver screen. And of course, Hollywood publicity departments frequently used baseball to […]

Obama Was Warned About ISIS — Did Nothing — Then Lied

Former ambassador to Iraq, James Jeffrey, explains how the genocidal Islamic State emerged with nary a whimper of protest from the Obama administration. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pw3cH1-PQtc[/youtube]

Obama Libels Israel, Sucks Up to Genocidal-Yearning Iranians

So, all you rumor-mongering, fever-headed Jewish conspiracists: Support McCain, if you want, and there are credible reasons for doing so, but stop smearing Obama in the face of overwhelming evidence that the man is a great friend of Jews and of Israel. After a point, it becomes obvious that what you fear is not Israel’s […]

When HomoFascists Meet IslamoNazis

Can this really be happening in America? The mayor of Houston has issued a subpoena for the sermons of five church pastors — sermons that may focus on homosexuality. According to Houston’s HomoNazi mayor, Annise Parker, these sermons are at odds with equal-rights ordinances. Make no mistake about it: A red line has been crossed. […]

Hollywood in Stitches, Part I

“Hurry up and wait!” Anyone who has worked on a major Hollywood production is familiar with this ironic cry. There is a tremendous amount of down time on a Hollywood film. It takes hours to set up lights, rig camera and sound, and make sure the sets and props are in place. Thus, actors spend […]

The Redefinition of Marriage is Not About Marriage

As the move to redefine marriage in the United States gains steam through the agency of unelected activist courts, it should be clear that the true intent of this radical movement is to wage war against religion and, of course, against the First Amendment. It is vital to remember that the Left uses stealth and […]

Obama’s Treachery and the Jewish State

Obamaism is a multifaceted attack on traditional Americanism. Obamaism springs from Marxist-Lenninism, but is softened, for messaging purposes, by the utopian, feel-good language of social justice. It is no accident that Obama was a deeply devoted follower of Jeremiah Wright, whose theology is a radical leftist’s wet dream of what religion should be. Naturally, Wright […]

The Israel Apartheid Blood Libel

Is Israel an apartheid state, as its enemies claim? Who better to answer that charge than a Black South African who lived through apartheid? Kenneth Meshoe, a member of the South African parliament, fits that bill. He examines the evidence against Israel and draws a compelling conclusion.

Take #3: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

Leaning boards ( also called Slant boards) were invented for Hollywood players to relax between takes. Hollywood costumes were frequently cut on-the-bias, and tailored so snugly that the actor could not sit without bursting a ladder of seams. In fact, most of the time, there were no zippers or buttons on the costumes. Actors were […]

Obama’s Community Theater

From the very beginning of Seraphic Secret’s work in the blogosphere, we have maintained that Hollywood movies are the most powerful weapon of propaganda the world has ever known. America wins wars that Hollywood supports. And of course, America loses wars that Hollywood opposes.

Netanyahu Calls Obama’s View of Jerusalem ‘Un-american’

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_U-O2v3LHw#t=72[/youtube]   Seraphic Secret would like to remind the 74% of American Jews who voted for Obama that he spent over 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s openly Jew-hating, America-bashing (so-called) church. Thus, Obama’s hostility and racism towards the Jewish state was nothing if not predictable.

Hamas: Ruling West Bank Could Destroy Israel “…with a speed that no one can imagine.”

Obama has (sorta) declared war against Islamic State. But the IslamoNazis of Hamas, according to the State Department, are partners for peace. In short, the IslamoNazis who work to liquidate the State of Israel and every Jew on the face of the earth are good IslamoNazis. But the IslamoNazis who threaten Western interests are the […]
