New Year, Old Hollywood

Here at Seraphic Secret we try to remain optimistic. However, after six years of Obama, this state of mind becomes increasingly difficult to maintain. IslamoNazis are on the march all across the globe. Iran edges closer to becoming a nuclear power even as Obama touts what a good friend Iran could be. ObamaCare is, as we […]

Is Livia Dreaming of Electric Sheep?

As Livia was sleeping, I sat and watched over her for about 20 minutes. Every once in a while she twitched or shuddered. Livia clenched and unclenched her fist. Her eyelids fluttered open and I saw her eyes sliding around as if unbalanced. She squeaked like a mouse, threw out her arms as if plummeting […]

Sisters

  Browsing through the day’s news made Seraphic Secret feel sad. An eleven-year-old Jewish girl in Israel suffered third-degree burns over 50 percent of her body after PalNazis hurled a Molotov cocktail at her parents’ car. At the same time, the PalNazis, who enjoy overwhelming support among the oh-so-civilized barbarians of the EU, are studying an online video that gives detailed instructions […]

Flashback: Hollywood Celebrates Christmas

During Hollywood’s Golden Age, the studios, through newspapers,fan magazines, and trade publications, published photos of their stars celebrating Christmas. In this way, Hollywood — though founded by poor immigrant Jews — informed the public that the motion picture industry was in harmony with Christian America. Seraphic Secret — Karen and I — are Orthodox Jews. We […]

A Timeless Chanukah Message From…

A married couple, two of our dearest friends, are making aliyah (going up) to Israel tomorrow.  They sent us this message as the timeless reason they are, at last, moving to the Jewish state.

The Police are the New Jews

All across the United States, police departments and police officers are shrilly demonized as racist, cold-blooded killers by the opportunistic race hustlers of the left. Sound familiar? Indeed, the hatred of police from the liberal left echoes their endless demonization of Israel, the Jewish state.

The Left Demanded Dead Cops

This is Barack Obama’s advisor on, ahem, race relations. Sharpton is the man who lied about Tawana Brawley, the man who led a Jew-hating riot in Crown Heights, and the man who owes the U.S. Treasury $4.5 million in back taxes. And now another police officer has been murdered in Florida.

RIP Officer Wenjian Liu and Officer Rafael Ramos

Yesterday, December 20, Saturday,  in Bedford-Stuyvestant, Brooklyn, two New York City police officers were executed in broad daylight by Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, who boasted via social media that he was “putting wings on pigs today” in revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Is it our imagination or is the global order falling into systemic disorder? North Korea, a giant gulag, has managed to intimidate the entire Hollywood system. Meanwhile, the Obama regime, allegedly sworn to defend and protect America from all threats foreign and domestic, seems far more interested in cozying up to the ruthless tyrants of […]

Hollywood: When Evil Triumphs

The most popular and durable Hollywood character is the lone hero. The man, or woman, who against all odds, confronts and defeats evil. In the old days, there was usually a shoot out, a duel on the dusty street of a frontier town between the forces of darkness and the forces of decency. From the […]

The Old-New Chanukah War 2014

On December 5, 2012, The New York Times filed this story: Cheering U.N. Palestine Vote, Synagogue Tests Its Members. Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, a large synagogue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is known for its charismatic rabbis, its energetic and highly musical worship, and its liberal stances on social causes. But on Friday, when […]

Where’s Your IslamoNazi Membership Card?

Take a look inside your wallet. Chances are you have various membership cards. Seraphic Secret belongs to: the Automobile Club of Southern California, Writer’s Guild of America, West, The Parking Spot, Halachic Organ Donor Society, just a few among many. Are these cards the sum total of our existence? According to the leftists who are […]

Sydney Morning Herald Urges Empathy For IslamoNazi

The IslamoNazi who has terrorized the citizens of Sydney, Australia is evil But the leftists who demand that good people empathize with this evil are, in many ways, just as dangerous. Democracies do not fall because of outside forces closing in, but because of the barbarians inside who weaken resolve and turn morality on its […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Still Burning…

It’s been another terrible, horrible very bad week with the release of a Democrat, ahem, study, that seeks to persecute President George W. Bush and the CIA for their efforts to protect America against genocidal IslamoNazis. The Democrat Senate report is a lynching, just as the Ferguson riots are lynch mobs, and just as Rolling […]

British Star Jessie Matthews Does Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs

Jessie Matthews (1907-1981) was Britain’s first and greatest international movie star. Known as the Dancing Divinity, Matthew’s tragic and scandal-ridden life was more akin to hell on earth. Born above a butcher shop in London’s Soho district, the seventh of eleven children, George, Jessie’s father was illiterate, a harsh and distant drunk. In contrast, Jessie’s […]

Democrats Enable Jihad

Who is telling the truth? Is it the Democrats who wrote their report — actually, a political document — on the CIA and its tactics against genocidal IslamoNazis, or is it the CIA’s former directors and field operatives who claim the exact opposite, and who were not interviewed by Senate Democrats? History is a useful guide. […]

Jewish Lives Matter

During a BET interview, President Obama lectured that police shoot black men because “they have a subconscious fear of folks who look different.” With all due respect to the race-hustler-in-chief, the fear is of black criminals, and it is not subconscious. It is a rational response to the homicide rate in America which is overwhelmingly […]

Loose Cigarettes, Taxes, Death — Welcome to Liberal Utopia

Who smokes? Mostly, the poor. Of course there are a handful of hipsters who sport clownish pork pie hats, and defiantly puff away, viewing themselves as postmodern James Deans. But really, it’s the poor and blue collar who  indulge in the liberal sin of tobacco. Meanwhile, their liberal betters proudly sweat in gleaming gyms, or […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Burning…

All across the country protests, riots, and race-baiters doing what they do in order to disrupt civil society. We don’t know about you, but here at Seraphic Secret we feel the need for some relief from the endless cycle of horrible, terrible, very bad news. We yearn for beauty, for images that, in one way […]
