The ObamaCare Atrocities Part 1,678

Obama-scandals

Amidst the tsunami of never-ending Obama scandals, it is vital that we stay focused on the continuing disaster that is ObamaCare.

Benghazi is important because four Americans were murdered by Arab Muslim terrorists while Obama and Hillary Clinton did nothing. The IRS scandal is monumental because the IRS, acting as a political arm of the White House—under any party—is a direct threat to the Republic. The latest outrage, the Bergdahl trade, reveals the rotten core of the Obama regime when they held a Rose Garden ceremony for a father who has made common cause with the Muslim terrorists, and for a soldier who is at best, a deserter, at worst, a traitor. And of course, Obama lied about the reasons for the infamous trade.

The VA scandal reveals the rotten core of a bloated, inefficient government running health care.

But ObamaCare is the most important issue facing the American people. This monstrosity will, if not repealed, unravel the world’s greatest health care system, and create a two-tiered structure where the wealthy—and the Democrat politicians who voted for ObamaCare—will avail themselves of excellent private health care, and everyone else will be forced into a government-run abattoir.

Putting Jew-Killers On Salary

Hamas "civil servants" in the streets of Gaza.

Hamas “civil servants” in the streets of Gaza.

One of the reason’s Barack Obama’s transcripts from Columbia University have never been released is because Obama took so many classes with Edward Said, the notorious Arab Jew-hater whose autobiography about his idyllic childhood in Jerusalem, is a tissue of lies.

Barack Obama has made common cause with Jew-haters for his entire adult life.

His political identity as a man of the radical left is inextricably bound up with the likes of Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Khalid Rashidi and Edward Said.

Obama is an enemy of the Jewish State. Period. Full stop.

The people of Egypt, Syria, Libya and Tunisia know this full well.

So do the nuclear mullahs of Iran.

And now, with the birth of the unity government of Fatah and Hamas, we can expect Obama and the ever anti-Semitic State Department, to lavish funds on this genocidal yearning entity.

The Engine Under Hollywood’s Hood

 

Bullitt ('68) stars the awesome Ford Mustang GT, and co-stars Steve McQueen.

Bullitt (’68) stars the awesome Ford Mustang GT Fastback. Steve McQueen also appears.

Cars and movies. A natural alignment.

There are movies you love because the cars featured become major characters with whom we identify.

Bullitt, 1968, (allegedly) stars Steve McQueen and Jacqueline Bisset.

But let’s be honest, the real star of the movie is McQueen’s 1968, 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT Fastback.

The 10 minute 53 second chase scene in “Bullitt” is one of the most thrilling and influential chases in Hollywood’s history. There are people who know every single shot of the chase. But ask them about the film’s plot and you get a blank stare.

Who cares?

The car’s the thing.

Take a look at the following chart, and chances are you’ll find your favorite movie car.

Obama’s Constant Traitors

future-must-not-belong-to-those-who-slander-prophet-islam-mohammad-barack-hussein-obama-muslim

The pattern is distinct and impossible to deny.

Barack Obama, throughout his career, has made common cause with traitors. His mentor, Frank Marshall Davis was a vocal and notorious Communist.

Obama kicked off his greasy political career in the living room of American terrorists Bill  Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn.

And of course, Obama has consistently courted leftwing Jew haters like Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi and Salam al-Marayati.

Most recently, Obama aligned himself with the Muslim Brotherhood, theocratic fascists whose religious ideology demands the genocide of Jews and Christians.

UN Palestinian-Nazi Propaganda

American taxpayers pay for this Jew-hating filth via America’s  financial support for the U.N., a vile and useless organization that overwhelmingly serves the interests of tyrants, Islamist mass killers, and Jew-hating regimes.

VA Treatment For All

VA Scandal

The VA is the poster child for Big Government.

Anyone who has ever dealt with government bureaucracy knows hell. The primary function of the bureaucrat is to move files from one domain to another, using ironclad protocols that are frequently at odds with reality.

The bureaucracy is an ecosystem dedicated to self-preservation. The services the bureaucrat provides are too often afterthoughts, annoying duties carried out with martyred sighs.

The True Meaning of the Obama Spielberg Holocaust Party

Kim Kardashian strikes a pose at the Shoah Foundation awards ceremony.

Kim Kardashian strikes a Never Again pose at the Shoah Foundation party.

Daniel Greenfield reminds us that Jewish history repeats itself with tragic consequences because so-called Jewish leaders are too busy marinating in their liberal pieties to notice that they are enabling the mass murder of their own people.

Last summer, Obama had forced Israel to release the murderer of Isaac Rotenburg, an elderly Holocaust survivor who had escaped a death camp and reached Israel, only to be killed by a member of Palestinian Authority leader Abbas’ Fatah party.

Flanked by Spielberg and Springsteen, Obama told an audience of notables such as Kim Kardashian, Samuel L. Jackson, Tyler Perry, Tom Cruise and Robert Downey Jr. about the importance of Holocaust survivors and how he would like to help the Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Islamic terrorist group that his administration fought to keep off the terrorist list, but he just can’t.

It’s hard to find the time to fight Nigerian Islamic terrorists when you’re so busy forcing Israel to free Islamic terrorists.

Internal Repression Service

palin

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.”

—Daniel Webster

The scandals and the cover-ups by the Obama regime just keep on coming.

Some say that the VA scandal is the most damaging. Perhaps.

But Seraphic Secret views the IRS scandal as a watershed in American history. The IRS is now a political operative of the Democrat party. Think of the power the IRS wields. They can destroy a citizen’s life with a bureaucratic nod of the head.

The IRS, under Obama, is a loaded gun aimed at those who disagree with the policies of Barack Obama.

This is tyranny.

Hollywood Hat Game

Theda Bara, born Theodosia Goodman, was a nice Jewish Girl form Cincinnati who transformed herself into cinema's first femme fatale, the man-eating vamp. Tragically, most of her films were destroyed in a fire.

Theda Bara, (1885 – 1955) born Theodosia Goodman, was a nice Jewish girl from Cincinnati who transformed herself into cinema’s first femme fatale, the man-destroying vamp. Tragically, most of her legendary films were destroyed in a fire.

There was a time when wearing a hat was  de rigueur. Fine millinery was considered a sign of good taste, good breeding, and good fashion.

Hollywood actresses were rarely seen in public without hat, gloves and a designer outfit. Those were the days when Hollywood insisted on projecting style and glamour. Of course, with the destruction of the studio system by the federal government and the advent of television, stars abandoned style and rapidly devolved into vulgar celebrity.

Here’s a reminder of classic Hollywood glamour featuring stars in their hats.

9/11 Museum Refuses to Censor Al-Qaeda Film

hashtag-flotus

It’s rare that Seraphic Secret gets to report good news. But apparently, the liberals who wrote the copy for the 9-11 Museum film are holding firm against the terrorist enablers who wish to deny reality and rewrite history by deleting any reference to the Islamist terrorists who perpetrated the 9-11 atrocity.

While we’re discussing the Orwellian rewrite of history so beloved by the left, let us stipulate that the righteous drama being played out through the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls is further evidence that the left is delusional.

Foreign policy via Twitter is not policy. It is drama. It is teenagers emoting.

The people who are Tweeting BBOG are the very people who are always telling us that drones are unacceptable, that Islam is not violent, that Islamic terrorists are an aberration, that we must negotiate with genocidal terrorists, that Ayaan Hirsi Ali cannot speak at Brandeis, that the 9-11 film should make no reference to Islam, that America must relinquish her role as world leader against blood-thirsty state and non-state players who are actively seeking to establish a Caliphate.

These young Nigerian women—mostly Christian—have been kidnapped, raped, sold, and used as bargaining chips against the Nigerian government, are not just victims of Islamic terrorists, not just victims of a rich but utterly corrupt Nigerian government, they are also the victims of Western passivity in the face of the rising tide of transnational Islamic terror.

Spielberg Honors Obama’s Lies About Jew-Hatred

Hollywood greets Barack Obama.

Hollywood greets Barack Obama.

Hollywood loves handing out awards.

Once upon a time, Oscar was the only game in town. Then the Emmy appeared. Okay, I get it. Awards for movies. Awards for television. Makes sense. But now we are engulfed in an orgy of award ceremonies that render meaningless the achievement an award is supposed to signify.

In the 1960s, Hollywood embraced political action in a big way. Ever since, we have seen the intersection of politics and Hollywood celebrity that is unprecedented. Hollywood knows it has the power to change hearts and minds, and post-modern Democrats have embraced the role of shameless one-party propagandists with passion.

This intellectual and artistic corruption is far worse than the Communist model where the arts were controlled by a ruthless political apparatus. The Hollywood elite have volunteered as propagandists for the Democrat party.

Tragically Steven Spielberg, a fine director, but a man who lacks elementary wisdom, has carried the Hollywood-Democrat alliance a step further with, naturally, an award ceremony.

Hollywood Star Ads: Buy Me, Be Me

Marilyn Monroe's cleavage for Jon-Joy cosmetics.

Marilyn Monroe’s cleavage for Jon-Joy cosmetics.

Ever since there were movie stars there have been star product endorsements.

Corporations and their advertising companies were quick to understand that those larger than life figures floating like angels on the silver screen were potent persuaders. Thus, the synergistic relationship between one product, the movie star, and a consumer product — cigarettes, perfume, makeup, whatever — was born, and continues with increasing power and sophistication to this very day.

The idea is simplicity itself: Buy me, be me.

Hillary’s State Department Refused to Brand Boko Haram as Terrorists

Hillary-Clinton-20161

Ready for Hillary.

That’s the not-so-catchy Hillary for POTUS rallying cry.

Regarding the Benghazi atrocity, Hillary in full hysteric mode, screeched: “What difference does it make?”

Well, it makes no difference if you—like your husband—regard truth as an malleable. It makes a difference because the families of those slain deserve to know why their loved ones were murdered, and why Obama has not unleashed the dogs of war against the Muslim terrorists who carried out the Benghazi attack. It makes a difference because government is accountable for their decisions, actions, or lack of action.

It makes a difference because Hillary claims to be a staunch defender of women. And yet Boko Haram, like all Islamist mobs, are medieval savages whose theology demands the subjugation of women.

And yet Hillary’s State Department, for two long years, refused to designate these genocidal yearning Muslims as terrorists.

White House Benghazi E-mail Equivalent to Nixon Tapes

9-11-benghazigate

The scandals that characterize the Obama regime are unique in their mind-boggling numbers, and the manner in which the Pratetorian media have refused to report, much less investigate, the most corrupt administration in American history.

The Benghazi atrocity most certainly leads directly into the Oval Office. That’s why the Democrats are doing everything to avoid telling the truth. You can be sure if Benghazi happened under a Republican POTUS, he would have been impeached—and quite rightly—a long time ago.

Charles Krauthammer compares the latest email revelations to the Nixon tapes.
