Friday Photos: ObamaNet Edition

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 ways […]

Obama’s Secret Internet Power Grab Mimics Obamacare

The left is insatiable in their thirst to centralize power through levers of the bureaucratic state. It’s not enough for Obama and the left to destroy the world’s greatest health care system. Now, they are moving secretly to control, and heavily tax, the Internet. There is nothing wrong with the Internet that suddenly needs fixing […]

Egyptian Cleric: Christianity Emerged from Penis Worship; Christian Women Raise Dogs to Replace Husbands

Obama Spins Like an Iranian Centrifuge

The Obama White House has been leaking like the Titanic recently. And oddly enough every single leak goes to a single theme: Obama is a steely-eyed warrior who kills jihadists and sets up brilliant cyberwarfare hits. “In Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power,” David Sanger, reports that it was […]

Of Flame and Flames

By now you’ve probably heard about Flame, a sophisticated cyber attack aimed at Iran and other Islamist nets. Israel is playing coy, hinting that this super bug, like Stuxnet, just might be an Israeli operation. Seraphic Secret has no doubt that Flame is an Israeli cyber weapon developed by Unit 8200 and we welcome every […]

The Rape, Torture and Murder Of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian

George Zimmerman is being tried, judged and lynched by the race-baiters of the left—in concert with the liberal media. Race-hustlers like Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters and Barack Obama are doing what they do. I expect no less. It’s how they make a living. It’s why they breathe. But the media is […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere #145 Plus Linda Darnell

Haveil Havalim #145 is up. We’d like to thank Soccer Dad for including Seraphic Secret’s The Murder of Lebanon in this week’s fine roundup. ******* My Darling Clementine is one of John Ford’s best Westerns. Henry Fonda as Wyatt Earp is mythic. But Linda Darnell as the, ahem, dance hall girl, Chihuahua, is just fire, […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere #143, The Annapolis Apartheid Edition

Haveil Havalim #143 is up and Soccer Dad has kicked a field goal with this one. I’ve titled this The Annapolis Apartheid Edition, seeing as how the Jews were ushered into the conference hall through the servants’ entrance, while everyone else, including Condi, entered via the, y’know, uber-Islam entrance. Nice move Condi, you who were […]

Haveil Havalim #142 is up. We’d like to thank Soccer Dad for including Seraphic Secret’s Aunt Pearl, Nanny & Thanksgiving in this week’s fine round-up.

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere #137

Haveil Havalim #137 is up and this edition, by Esser Agaroth, has a lovely introduction, and is so beautifully organized that I simply can’t bring myself to pull focus from all his hard work by focusing on some Hollywood legend. It just wouldn’t be fair. Yasher Koach to Esser Agaroth for doing a really fine […]

The Best of the Jewish Blogosphere

Haveil Havalim #136 is up. Normally on Sunday, you can find me watching a great old Hollywood movie. Then I like to stroll down memory lane recalling some obscure Hollywood lore as I put up the latest Haveil Havalim. But this morning I gave a lecture and now Karen and I have to run out […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere # 133: Plus Olive Thomas

Olive Thomas For the past few days Americans have been talking about a certain unfortunate Hollywood star who, it seems, made a suicide attempt. “But he was a movie star,” people say in shock. “He had it all. It doesn’t make any sense.” Ah, little do they know. Hollywood stars have been killing themselves since […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere, Plus Jean Harlow

Jean Harlow Sunday Morning. I am not working on my latest script. I am, instead, watching one of the great Hollywood movie stars as she cracks wise: “I thought we might run up a few curtains and make a batch of fudge while we were planning on what to wear to the country club dance […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere #129 Plus Myrna Loy

The Thin Man series, are classics. But here’s a secret, Myrna Loy always said that her very favorite film was Test Pilot. She co-stars with […]

Best of the Jewish Blogosphere #126 Plus Brigitte Bardot

Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot in Shalako, 1968 “You’re too beautiful to die.” says Sean Connery. Brigitte Bardot says— Actually, I have no idea what her line of dialog is. And neither does she.
