Boys and Girls Together — But Not On Facebook

Tweet The goal of the postmodern Democrat party is to centralize and harness the power of the state, which is then used as a blunt instrument of intimidation to suppress liberty and bring about an imagined Socialist utopia. Because Socialism always brings poverty, unemployment, misery and chaos wherever it rears its collective head, Democrats have […]

The Democrat-ObamaCare Purges

Tweet “You can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs.” So said Stalin about his genocidal purges. Obama and the Democrats are whipping up an omelette. We the American people — and the free enterprise system — are the broken eggs, the broken lives. At the moment, there are several million broken lives as the […]

Obamacare: The Death Spiral

Tweet   It would be a mistake for Obamacare’s opponents to focus on the dysfunctional Obamacare websites. The so-called glitches are not glitches at all, but symptoms of 2,7000 pages of Byzantine laws passed exclusively by Democrats — the first stage in the destruction of the finest health care system in human history. Radical leftists […]

Storming the Barrycades

Tweet The U.S. government is not shut-down. Approximately 83% of the Federal government is up and functioning. Including the Obamacare website, which fulfills every prediction made by anyone with a lick of common sense about what happens when the federal government colonizes one-sixth of the American economy. Just wait for Obamacare to be fully implemented. […]

Obama’s Unpatriotic Flashback

Tweet In 2006, Junior Senator Barack Obama signed and entered this letter into the Congressional Record.     Obviously, this is a principled man who is deeply concerned about America’s fiscal problems.

Businesses, Unions And Schools All Warn Of Cuts In Hours Due To Obamacare…

Tweet Even NBC, a bastion of liberal thought and Obama-worship, can no longer deny the obvious economic disaster that is Obamacare.

Cyprus American Style

Tweet The Socialist government of Cyprus is planning on stealing money—they call it a tax—from the savings accounts of Cypriot citizens. People will lose between six percent and nine percent of their savings. Naturally, the government has closed the banks for fear of a run by depositors. They call it a “banking holiday.” Notice how […]

We The Government

Tweet Obama’s SOTU in brief: Raise the minimum wage. This is a job killer. Spend more in infrastructure. Higher taxes. We’ve been here before. It was called shovel-ready jobs. Which Obama famously yucked-up as not-so-ready.

Putting the Cool In Coolidge

Tweet Yesterday, Congress passed a bill which will: 1. Increase taxes on everyone. 2. Increase the national debt. 3. Increase the size of government. The politicians are slapping themselves on the back, boasting that they have avoided the so-called fiscal cliff. But what they have really done is place America on the road to serfdom. […]

Debate #3: The Statesman and the Community Agitator

Tweet Well, clearly Mitt Romney reads Seraphic Secret. Yesterday we asserted that two foreign policy issues should dominate the final Romney-Obama debate: 1) The greatest threat to America’s national security is our failing economy. 2) A nuclear Iran. Thus, Romney relentlessly hammered away at Obama’s failed economic policies, linking this with weakness overseas. Regarding Iran, […]

The Red Line and, Gosh, Look Who’s Endorsing Barack Hussein Obama

Tweet Iranian human rights activist Banafsheh Zand Bonazzi hosts and narrates this film about the Iranian nuclear threat. Banafsheh fled Iran during the revolution. She left behind her father who was jailed by the regime. Last year, he committed suicide as a final protest against the Islamist tyranny. Tonight is the final Romney-Obama debate, and […]

Oops! U.S. “Overpaid” $14 Billion In Jobless Benefits

Tweet Seraphic Secret is in the movie business. Emphasis on the word business. Here’s how it works. Yours truly writes and produces a movie. If it makes a profit, it’s a success. Those involved prosper. If the film loses money, heads roll. Either way, there are consequences. Business measures itself through profit and loss. But […]

It’s The Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Stupid!

Tweet A close friend, a teacher in Los Angeles Unified School District, said to me: “There’s a kid in one of my classes, bright and adorable, but with some, y’know, learning issues. I sat down and talked with him, tried to find out what was going on. Naturally, there were problems at home, the parent’s […]

Obama By The Numbers

Tweet The statistics charting our nation’s economic decline during the Obama years are devastating and damning. More and more, under Obama and the Democrat party, America resembles the disastrous Socialist European model that is—big shock—imploding, exploding and melting before our very eyes. But nothing will deter Obama’s radical ideology which calls for more government regulation, […]

Join the International Zionist Conspiracy

Tweet Free markets are synonymous with a free people. There is no liberty without economic freedom. One of the reasons the Muslim world—even petro-wealthy nations—are swamps of intolerance and ignorance are the government-run economic policies of the ruling elites. Israel has wisely evolved from the dopey Socialism of its modern founders to a free market. […]

Rabbi Hillel on One Leg, Me Too

Tweet The great Jewish sage, Rabbi Hillel, lived in the land of Israel in the first century BCE. The Talmud, Shabbat 31a, relates the following story: A prospective convert to Judaism asked Hillel to teach him the entire Torah while he stood on one leg. Hillel replied: “That which is hateful unto you do not […]

The Gates of Hell or $15,000,000,000,000

Tweet Fifteen trillion dollars. Today, the US National debt passed the fifteen trillion-dollar mark. That’s quite a record. Welcome to the gates of hell. If you want to see our—your debt—in action, here’s the US National debt clock live. I stared at it for about one minute and my head started to pound. Interest on […]

Obamanomics For Dummies

Tweet Great Britain is burning. Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and Ireland are economic basket cases. All are quasi-socialist nanny states whose fiscal policies are Ponzi schemes, the con job for which Bernard Madoff was sent to jail. This is the economic model to which Obama and the Democrats aspire. Their thinking is simple and […]

Karen Speaks to Speaker Boehner

Tweet America is on the edge of an economic precipice. Obama’s stimulus is an utter and complete failure. The latest unemployment figures are not just bad, they are disastrous, truly alarming. Obama, like a petulant child, still blames George Bush. This is not just unseemly and immature, but a grotesque distortion of reality. Either Obama […]
