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.

The Movie Selma Judenrein

Tweet Movies are the most powerful tools of propaganda the world has ever known. They have the ability to mold public opinion, in ways both overt and covert, on every topic from fashion to war. Think about it. America has never won a modern war without Hollywood’s support. And when Hollywood turns against a war, […]

New Year, Old Hollywood

Tweet 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 […]

Flashback: Hollywood Celebrates Christmas

Tweet 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. […]

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 […]

Hollywood: When Evil Triumphs

Tweet 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 […]

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 […]

British Star Jessie Matthews Does Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs

Tweet 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, […]

Thanksgiving 2014 — America: The Children of the Children of Israel

Tweet As far as I know, there are only two countries in the world that were founded on the idea of hope. America and Israel. And what was the hope? The hope of achieving religious freedom, and freedom from the tyranny of centralized government. The Children of Israel, fleeing Egyptian slavery and religious persecution, settled […]

Hollywood in Stitches, Part II

Tweet Part I is here. “Hurry up and wait!” Anyone who has worked on a major Hollywood production is familiar with this ironic command. There is a tremendous amount of down time on a Hollywood film. It takes hours to set up lights, rig camera and sound, and make sure the sets and props are […]

Hollywood — Play Ball!

Tweet Ever since Hollywood invented itself as a universal dream factory, movies about baseball were viewed as the perfect landscape in which to explore themes of loyalty, ambition, competition, and of course, love. More than any other sports genre, baseball movies have dominated the silver screen. And of course, Hollywood publicity departments frequently used baseball […]

Take #3: The Meaning of Leaning in Hollywood

Tweet Leaning boards ( also called Slant boards) were invented for Hollywood players to relax between takes. Hollywood costumes were frequently cut on-the-bias, and tailored so snugly that the actor could not sit without bursting a ladder of seams. In fact, most of the time, there were no zippers or buttons on the costumes. Actors […]

Obama’s Community Theater

Tweet From the very beginning of Seraphic Secret’s work in the blogosphere, we have maintained that Hollywood movies are the most powerful weapon of propaganda the world has ever known. America wins wars that Hollywood supports. And of course, America loses wars that Hollywood opposes.

Netanyahu Calls Obama’s View of Jerusalem ‘Un-american’

Tweet   Seraphic Secret would like to remind the 74% of American Jews who voted for Obama that he spent over 20 years as a faithful member of Jeremiah Wright’s openly Jew-hating, America-bashing (so-called) church. Thus, Obama’s hostility and racism towards the Jewish state was nothing if not predictable.
