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, […]

Veteran’s Day, 2014: My Favorite Veteran, Rabbi Abraham Avrech z’l

Tweet My father, Rabbi Chaplain Abraham Avrech passed away on the holiday of Purim, March 14, 2014. This is the first Veteran’s Day without my father’s physical presence in this world.

John Wayne Casts a Giant Shadow

Tweet John Wayne’s commitment to Conservative values cemented his support of Israel. Indeed, there was a time when even Hollywood liberals supported Israel publicly, and through generous charitable contributions.  Tragically, classic liberalism is dead, replaced by a postmodern Democrat party—progressivism—that is radically left and infused with the classic Jew-hatred of Marxist-Lenninism. In Scott Eyman’s compulsively […]

Hamas Dead Baby Strategy

Tweet The Christian community in Mosul have been given the choice to pay an exorbitant tax, convert to Islam — or die. In response, thousands of Christians are fleeing Mosul with little more than the clothes on their backs.

From Somalia to Brandeis, The Road of Liberal Fascism

Tweet And if your son asks you in the future, saying, What are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, that the L-RD our G-d commanded you? You will say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt; and the L-RD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. The L-RD […]

Meet the Jewish-American Fascists of Brandeis

Tweet Liberty’s Spirit has written an Open Letter to the Jewish-America Community: What Is Wrong With You? This letter is wrenchingly on-target. In it, she decries the suicidal political correctness that animates the self-righteous Democrats who also happen to have been born Jewish. No better example of this PC insanity can be found but at […]

A Duck Dynasty Purim!

Tweet The 2014 Purim celebration begins on Saturday night March 15 and continues through the 16th.

Judah Maccabee Wants You to Man-Up

Tweet Before Judah the Maccabee and his pitifully small band of 3,000 men went to battle against the great armies of the Selecuid empire, Judah assembeled his troops and gave them a rousing speech. This excerpt, from the Book of Maccabees, gives you an idea of the noble and pious rhetoric Judah used to inspire his […]

Confessions of a Shomer Shabbos Hollywood Screenwriter

Tweet Act I: Exposition—In Which the Main Characters and Primary Drama Are Introduced It’s Shabbat morning. I’m in synagogue, praying, where an undertone of chatter is definitely not the norm.

Jew-Hating Comic Book: Foreskin Man

Tweet As a follow up to our post the other day about progressive, anti-circumcision groups, here are a few panels from a comic book published by members of that movement in California. Brace yourselves, this is deeply anti-Semitic imagery, reminiscent of the hate propaganda used by the Nazis, and currently a daily diet in the […]

Yom Kippur, 2013

Tweet …In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and you shall not do any work … For on that day he shall provide atonement for you to cleanse you from all your sins before the L-RD. —Leviticus 16:29-30

The Story of the Jews

Passover: Liberty, Then and Now

Tweet Seraphic Secret rises at 5 a.m for a morning walk. The streets are empty save for the chug-chug-chugging of the pick-up trucks delivering newspapers. Sprinklers hiss, and lawns glisten. The air is lightly perfumed with jacaranda. I listen to a news round-up and feel—there is no way around this—sad and defeated.

Gun Confiscation in Australia: How’s That Working Out?

Tweet Take a look at what’s happening in Australia as the anti-gun fanatics move towards a complete weapons ban for private citizens. It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that good citizens will hand over their weapons rather than stand in violation of the law and go to jail. Criminals then take advantage of the […]
