Here are some classic Hollywood New Years images.
After one year of the Trump presidency we are hopeful and optimistic.
Obama’s JV team, ISIS, has been nearly wiped out. Neil Gorsuch sits on the Supreme Court. The Keystone pipeline is, at last, open. The individual mandate is gone. Which spells the beginning off the end for Obamacare. More and more federal lands are being privatized. Trump is rolling back government regulations at a steady clip. The economy is humming along, and the GDP promises to continue rising. Unemployment is at a record low. The DJIA and the NASDAQ are at record highs.
Here’s a simple truth: the more capital in the private sector, the better for all American citizens, which then translates into growth for the world economy.
Trump is doing what he can with an impossible situation in North Korea. As for Iran, we are learning more about Obama’s duplicity regarding the Iranian deal, best summed up in one infamous word: appeasement.
Meanwhile, Israel and America have reached a secret security agreement regarding nuclear Iran. It’s about time.
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 we knew it would be, a disaster. Perhaps most disturbing of all is the ubiquitous presence of the race baiting, tax cheating Al Sharpton in the White House. Sharpton is no ordinary professional demagogue like Barack Obama. Sharpton is a proven liar, and a toxic Jew-hater who provoked a pogrom in Brooklyn that lead to multiple deaths.
And this is the man who has become Obama’s de facto Minister of Blackishness, or something.
This past year has been terrible. On the domestic front, Obama’s political and personal pathologies dominate.
I recently spoke with a close friend who is a fine, dedicated physician in a small private practice. He’s considering early retirement. “I don’t think I can continue practicing medicine under ObamaCare. It forces me to pay more attention to paper work than to my patients. It would also force me into bankruptcy. I don’t take Medicare patients. ObamaCare is Medicare on steroids.”
The coming year for ObamaCare, and the vast majority of American people, will be even worse.
On the international scene, the four-year civil war in Syria looks like it will continue indefinitely. Here again, Obama’s lie about a chemical red-line was a defining moment.
A trusted source who is close to Bibi Netanyahu told Seraphic Secret that when Obama reneged on his chemical red-line statement, Israel understood that Obama is “fundamentally weak and untrustworthy.”
I do not smoke. I do not drink. I’m not overweight. Exercise? I take a three mile walk every day of the week, except Shabbat.
So, what New Year’s resolutions remain?
1. Okay, confession. I gained 3 lbs. over the past four days because Karen was out of town and I was alone and I found myself noshing like every ten minutes on Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds which are, I swear to G-d, like crack. Not that I’ve ever tried crack, but you get the point. Anyhoo… no more unbelievably delicious and addictive Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds. Not one. Ever.
