Friday Photos: Just Photos

Tweet No commentary today. No rants about politics and culture. I am drained. Here are some random pictures that will, hopefully, enliven a darkling plain.

Friday Photos: Drowning in Obama’s Oceania

Tweet This past week, White House spokesman Josh Earnest admitted that Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism who kill Americans. But, he continued, it would be unrealistic to expect the Iranian regime to give up terrorism. This statement was in defense of Obama’s continuing appeasement of the IslamoNazis of Iran. In the past, when […]

Friday Photos: In Every Generation

Tweet On Passover, Jews around the world recite a passage from the Haggadah that strikes a note both poignant and defiant. In every generation they [our enemies] rise up against us to destroy us, but the Holy One Blessed Be He saves us from their hands. But Judaism does not place faith in faith alone. […]

Friday Photos: Passover, Time to Remember the Future

Tweet Jewish holidays do not simply recall the past. Jewish holidays are cautionary tales for all time. They remind us that Jewish history repeats itself with terrible constancy. The Jewish people introduced ethical monotheism to the world — and for this gift the world has never forgiven us. Thus, we are despised and demonized.

Friday Photos: Announcing a New Jewish Holiday Edition

Tweet Jewish humor is filled with self-deprecating observations. We poke fun at our peculiar foibles, and frequently address our greatest anxieties — intermarriage, Jew-hatred, weight-gain — with a take-no-prisoners attitude. If you want to know how Jews are really feeling about something or someone, pay attention to the jokes Jews tell each other. A few […]

Friday Photos: The No Men Edition

Tweet In Pierke Avot (Ethic of the Fathers) Hillel teaches: “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.” Bibi Netanyahu won a resounding victory over the Israeli left and Barack Obama by paying heed to the great sage Hillel’s teaching. Bibi is a man in a world that is awash in […]

Friday Photos: Trompe L’oeil Nation

Tweet The idea is to fool the eye, to convince the viewer that the object exists in three dimensions. But of course, the surface is flat. It is a masterful illusion. So it is with Barack Obama and the postmodern Democrat party, who wage a ceaseless campaign of political trompe l’oeil. The Constitution, the separation […]

Friday Photos: There is No End of History Edition

Tweet Benjamin Netanyahu, in his devastating deconstruction of disastrous Obama’s Iranian policy was, in spite of Obama’s unprecedented assault on the Jewish State’s Prime Minister, a Churchillian attempt to preserve Western civilization against the onslaught of IslamoNazis. Obama’s White House would have you believe that Obama’s problem is a personal beef with Bibi. In fact, […]

Friday Photos: ObamaNet Edition

Tweet Few noticed that a significant  erosion of liberty took place this week in a room in Washington where three Democrat party commissars voted to classify the internet as a public utility. This means that over the next few years, slowly, almost imperceptibly, the federal government will levy increasingly heavy taxes on the internet. In […]

Friday Photos: Islam Denial Edition

Tweet The verbal gymnastics of the Obama administration have reached a level of weirdness that defies common sense. The targeted murder of Jews has been redefined as a “random act.” It is easy to make fun of Obama’s abuse of language, but really, we must ask ourselves, what is the political purpose of his stubborn […]

Friday Photos: Leviticus 25:10 Edition

Tweet Every week brings news that is at once shocking, and yet painfully familiar as Islamist barbarians rampage across the globe inflicting untold tortures and outrages. And yet, at the same time, Obama and the lapdog media insist that Islam is being misunderstood. You see, Islamist monsters are really “extremist zealots.” Question: Why do millions […]

Friday Photos: The High Horse Edition

Tweet At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, Barack Obama warned that we should not “get on our high horse” over the immolation of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh because Christians used to burn people too. It shocking and reprehensible that two days after Islamic terrorists burn a man alive, the President of the […]

Friday Photos: Mood Board

Tweet This morning, after Daf Yomi, my friend turned to me and said: “Some week, huh?” I said: “It seems that every week is some week.” “Yeah.” On that downer, let’s try and alter the mood with some photos and stories.

Friday Photos: Till the Cows Come Home

Tweet I’ve just finished a long and depressing conversation with a close friend who attends Daf Yomi with yours truly. We were wondering (among other things) what has possessed Barack Hussein Obama to release five more ruthless Gitmo detainees? All evidence, and common sense, suggests that these IslamoNazis will return to jihad and commit further […]

Friday Photos: Because the World Really is Burning

Tweet 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 […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Still Burning…

Tweet 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 […]

Friday Photos: Just Because the World is Burning…

Tweet 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 […]

Friday Photos: Still Scattered

Tweet   We hope all our readers had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. Keeping to last week’s theme of eschewing a theme, Seraphic Secret is, once again, indulging in a collection of random photos that we like for various reasons. We hope you do too.

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

Tweet The automobile represents freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains. Railroads are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a government-controlled system that turns  citizens into […]
