Trump Rescues William Tecumseh Sherman

The New York Times just did a hatchet job about Trump and women which ended up making the NY Times look far worse than Trump. The Washington Post hired 20 extra reporters to investigate Trump — just as they did not do when Barack Obama was the Democrat nominee. I recently came across a story […]

Prager U: Who’s More Pro-Choice Europe or America?

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHrihwWJv8o[/youtube]   Are abortion laws more conservative in America or in Western Europe? Would a pregnant woman seeking an abortion have an easier time getting one in Texas or in…Germany? The answers, as talk show host Elisha Krauss explains, may just change how you think about America’s abortion laws.

Ben Shapiro Dazzles at Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture

Yesterday, Sunday May 22, 2016 was the Thirteenth Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture featuring Ben Shapiro. His topic, “How You Can Save Israel.” Because the left is an intolerant fascist movement that uses violence and intimidation to further their Jew-hating program we kept the location of the event a secret, except for those who were […]

From Ben Casey to ObamaToilet

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xjq1P5p3fso[/youtube]   The opening credits to the Ben Casey TV series (1961-1966) were the only opening credits that my friends and I noticed and talked about. We were tweener Yeshiva students, enthusiastically devouring the fruits of popular culture even as were were steeped in Torah. We didn’t analyze our response to the Ben Casey credits. Our […]

Prager U: What ISIS Wants

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7f0bKIOwys[/youtube]   ISIS has conquered territory across the Middle East and northern Africa. It has terrorized its occupied cities, sown terror across Europe, and spread its ideology around the world. But what does ISIS want? What does it believe? Where did it come from? And can it be stopped? Tom Joscelyn, Senior Fellow at the […]

Independence Day, Israel at 68

There are only two countries in the world that were founded specifically on the idea of hope. America and Israel. In fact, Israel’s national anthem is Hatikvah, The Hope.

Meet the Israeli Killer Robot

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYMtX3E-Lgs[/youtube]   Here at Seraphic Secret we’re always on the lookout for new and better ways to kill IslamoNazi terrorists. In eight years Barack Obama has never even acknowledged the existence of IslamoNazis. Obama and his leftist goose-steppers use the Orwellian term, “violent extremism.” As if violent extremism is a fully formed ideology that is […]

Ben Rhodes: Obama’s Minister of Truth

I have a deep distrust of theory, an acute sense of the difference between words and facts. And so, when Israel expelled 9,000 Jews from their homes in Gaza, under the theory that disengagement proves to the world that trading land for peace works, I knew—because the Arab Muslims tell us—that any Israeli withdrawal is […]

And Then There Was Trump

When there were seventeen Republicans running to carry the GOPs standard against the Democrats, I supported Carly Fiorino. When Carly suspended her campaign, I shifted to Marco Rubio. When Rubio lost his home state of Florida and dropped out of the race, I supported Ted Cruz. People kept asking me, what happens if Trump wins […]

Why Are There Still Palestinian Refugees?

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sY0FOPa-j-E[/youtube]   Another superb video from our friends at Prager University: It’s been seven decades since the 1948 Arab-Israeli, and yet there are still an estimated 4 million Palestinian refugees…and zero Jewish refugees. With so many nearby Arab allies of the Palestinians, how did this happen? What does it say about Israel? What does it […]

Private vs. Government Investment

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Xg4Uq1W4L8&feature=em-subs_digest[/youtube]   From transportation to energy, and everything in between, should the government invest money in as many promising projects as possible? Or would that actually doom many of those ventures to failure? Burt Folsom, historian and professor at Hillsdale College, answers those questions by drawing on the fascinating history of the race to build […]
