The IslamoNazi Department of Pay for Slaying Jews

The IslamoNazis who call themselves Palestinians—a nationality invented by the KGB—have zero interest in building a functioning state. Their mission is to destroy the only successful state in the Middle East, Israel, the Jewish state. So obsessive is their Jew-hatred and jealousy—how did the Jews build a thriving country where Islam builds only failed states?—that […]

Hidden Hollywood: Issur Danielovitch AKA Kirk Douglas Can’t Get a Prom Date

In the beginning of his legendary career, Kirk Douglas (1916 – ) b. Issur Danielovitch, was almost typecast as a well-meaning but ineffectual husband in two fine films, The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, 1946, and A Letter to Three Wives, 1949.  But his career ascended into mega-stardom when he played cynical heroes motivated by rage: […]

Hidden Hollywood: Rudolph Valentino and the Rabbi’s Beautiful Daughter

The great pioneering director D.W. Griffith hired Rabbi Isadore Myers as the Jewish technical consultant on his great epic, Intolerance, 1916. Griffith was so happy with Rabbi Myer’s expert advice and attention to detail that he said to the good Rabbi: “How can I ever repay you?” Replied Rabbi Myers: “I have a daughter who would […]

Iran in Syria

Below the fold, my good friend David Gerstman analyzes Iran’s tactical and strategic position in Syria. David and other analysts have come to the conclusion that Iran is taking a beating in Syria. But a common mistake analysts make when viewing IslamoNazi movements—state and non-state players—is to judge them by Western standards. This is a […]

Holocaust Memorial Day: Death March to Dachau

One of my closest friends here in Los Angeles is Mr. Sol Teichman, a prominent citizen, businessman, philanthropist, and a Holocaust survivor. Born on September 9, 1927, in the Hungarian town of Munkacs, Sol’s family were prominent and prosperous grain, bean and walnut merchants. The family lived in a lovely home in a quiet cul-de-sac […]

Magda Goebbels: Downfall Beyond Imagination

Over the past few years, YouTube viewers are regularly entertained by a short portion of the German movie Downfall (’04). Using a single clip from the film, these ubiquitous and frequently clever shorts show Hitler ranting at his generals as Russian troops encircle Berlin and seek out the bunker. The thousand year Reich has lasted but […]

Ava Gardner’s Secret About Her Secret Jew

In 1988, Ava Gardner sat down with British author Peter Evans to write a Hollywood memoir. But Evans quickly discovered that Ava was a hopeless alcoholic who, when drunk, told juicy tinsel town tales. But when Ava sobered up, she ordered Evans not to use any of “the good” material. Ava knew where all the […]

Vast Nazi Archive Opens

Our dear friend Jackie Danicki asked if we had any thoughts on this story: After more than 60 years, Nazi documents stored in a vast warehouse in Germany were unsealed Wednesday, opening a rich resource for Holocaust historians and for survivors to delve into their own tormented past. The treasure of documents could open new […]

General Pershing Fights Jihadists

General John J. Pershing fought Muslim insurgents in the Philippines before World War I. His methods were politically incorrect, but quite effective. Today, he’d be hammmered ruthlessly by the press, court martialed, and thrown in the brig for G-d knows how long. But keep in mind that “Pershing is the only person, while still alive, […]

Holocaust by Bullets

His subjects were mostly children and teenagers at the time, terrified witnesses to mass slaughter. Some were forced to work at the bottom rung of the Nazi killing machine — as diggers of mass graves, cooks who fed Nazi soldiers and seamstresses who mended clothes stripped from the Jews before execution. They live today in […]

The Peace Racket

Seraphic Secret has long maintained that some of the biggest criminals on the planet are pacifists, those murderous peaceniks who self-righteously proclaim that all violence is wrong. Inevitably, these people end up enabling some of the worst dictators on the earth, and often these moral paragons end up enabling genocide. G-d forbid they should pick […]

Studying War

Military history teaches us about honor, sacrifice, and the inevitability of conflict. Try explaining to a college student that Tet was an American military victory. You’ll provoke not a counterargument—let alone an assent—but a blank stare: Who or what was Tet? Doing interviews about the recent hit movie 300, I encountered similar bewilderment from listeners […]

Genocide Generals

The national myth in Germany is that the German army, the Wehrmacht, did not participate in the genocide of World War II. This was, so the myth goes, exclusively the province of the SS, the Einsatzgruppen, and local fascist collaborators. Common sense has always whispered that this is nonsense. Such a division of labor cannot […]
