New Year, Old Hollywood: 2018

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 […]

Flashback: When Hollywood Celebrated Christmas

There was a time when Hollywood openly and joyously celebrated Christmas. Now, among the Hollywood elite, the greeting I hear is “Happy Holidays.” Look, we at Seraphic Secret are Orthodox Jews. This is not our holiday. But we want our Christian friends to celebrate Christmas. The politically correct Happy Holidays shtick is another nail in […]

Flashback: Hollywood Celebrates Christmas

During Hollywood’s Golden Age, the studios, via 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. We observe the Sabbath and eat only […]

Hollywood: I Drive Therefore I am Free

The automobile represents freedom. You climb into a car and go, go, go, whenever and wherever you want. The car is modern man’s path to liberty. Contrast cars with trains. Railroads are an expression of the collective. Individual identity is erased. You are at the mercy of a government-controlled system that turns  citizens into passive […]

Old Hollywood, New Year

Seraphic Secret works hard to favor the glass half-full view of life. When bad stuff happens, which it does all the time, we try not to plunge into a clinical depression. But let’s face it, 2012 was a difficult year for Conservatives — and for America. Obamacare has become the law of the land, which, […]
