Sasha Baron Cohen Wears Disguises to Interview and Mock Americans and Our Values – An “Ignorant Hillbilly” Responds

“The challenge is to Cohen, CBS and Showtime: donate all proceeds to a charitable group that actually respects and supports American Vets. Mock politicians and innocent public personalities all you want, if that lets you sleep at night, but HOW DARE YOU mock those who have fought and served our country,” – Sarah Palin

FoxNews.com reports that

Sarah Palin apparently wasn’t the only public figure duped by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen for his new show “Who is America?”

Veteran broadcaster Ted Koppel, former U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio also agreed to interviews with a disguised Cohen, according to reports.

Koppel told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that he was asked to be interviewed for an upcoming Showtime series called “Age of Reason.” He said he met a wheelchair-bound man who was equipped with an oxygen tank. He said he was told the show would be about “ordinary folk interviewing the expert.”

However, the former “Nightline” anchor said things took a turn when the interviewer, played by Cohen, started to ask him about President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The actor started to press Koppel on Trump’s crowd being the biggest ever, he told the Hollywood Reporter.

“When I disagreed, he showed me a photograph on his laptop of a huge inaugural crowd and a man holding a digital clock on a pole,” he said. “The clock said 11 p.m. My interviewer pointed out that if the crowd was that huge at 11, hours after the actual inauguration, it had to have been the biggest ever.”

Koppel ended the interview soon after a brief exchange, according to the magazine. Koppel said he never signed a release.

Meanwhile, Moore threatened a lawsuit against Showtime, if the network “airs a defamatory attack on [his] character, Variety reported. Moore said he was tricked when he was invited to receive an award for his “strong support of Israel.”

“I did not know Sacha Cohen or that a Showtime TV series was being planned to embarrass, humiliate, and mock not only Israel, but also religious conservatives such as Sarah Palin, Joe Walsh, and Dick Cheney,” Moore said.

Former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio admitted in an interview with Breitbart that he, too, was duped by Cohen, who this time posed as a Finnish comedian.

Arpaio said he felt “uncomfortable” by some of the words that Cohen used in the interview, but never walked out.

Palin, the former vice presidential candidate, blasted Cohen on Tuesday for duping her into doing an interview. She claimed she had been approached to participate in a “legit opportunity” to honor “American vets.”

She said she stayed for the interview “out of respect for what I was led to believe would be a thoughtful discussion with someone who had served in uniform.” She ultimately left, however, after claiming to have experienced “a long ‘interview’ full of Hollywoodism’s disrespect and sarcasm.”

Cohen, in character, responded to Palin’s criticisms in a letter. He said he believes Palin was hit by a “b——t grenade.”

Showtime defended Cohen’s antics in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

Cohen “is the premier provocateur of our time but not for the sake of ‘gotcha’ moments,” Showtime CEO David Nevins said. “Behind the elaborate setup is a genuine quest for the truth about people, places and politics.”

If there was ever a perfect example of the differences between the Far Left, including those in the “Entertainment Industry” like Sacha Baron Cohen and “average” Americans, like those of us here in the Heartland who are responsible for the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America, here it is,

In keeping with the arrogant smarmy attitudes recently exhibited in front of Congressional Hearings by the Deep State Operatives in the hierarchy of the FBI, Cohen looks down his upturned nose at the traditional values held by average Americans in his new series.

How he accomplishes his “mission” says more about him than the unsuspecting victims whom he takes advantage of.

All of the individuals mentioned in the above article have accomplished a great deal in their chosen fields of endeavor.

If Cohen had chosen to be honest and asked for interviews as himself, he might have received them.

However, honesty and Modern Liberals do not walk the same path.

Instead, Cohen was trying to prove how much smarter Liberals like himself are than Conservatives, or in the case of Ted Koppel “Traditionalists”.

I suppose that the former “Borat” thought that he was being hilarious in his duplicity.

However, like late night talk show hosts such as Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel, Cohen severely overestimates his talent to make people laugh and entertain them.

Liberals always believe themselves to be the smartest ones in any room that they walk into and Sacha Baron Cohen is no exception.

The thing is, though, these “super geniuses” never seem to be able to challenge their targets face to face, one on one. They always have to employ some sort of hook or angle, such as using Liberal Debate Moderators, or in the case of Cohen, cowardly, tasteless disguises.

Hey, Sacha…I have some news for you, Skippy.

Americans between the coasts aren’t impressed.

Just like Hillary Clinton and the Deep State hierarchy ensconced up in the Beltway, you have overestimated your own intelligence.

We “ignorant hillbillies” think that you’re nothing but a pathetic loser.

Until He Comes,

The Emp…err…Establishment Strikes Back: The Defeat of Roy Moore – A KJ Analysis

December 13, 2017

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell speaks about the election of Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election in Washington.

Well, gosh.

I am so glad that a bunch of stuffed shirts in (said in my best Pace Picante Sauce commercial voice) New York City, the Beltway, and the Left Coast, knew what was best for voters in Alabama.

Evidently, those who are aligned with the DC Republican Establishment up in the Northeast Corridor are just as clueless as the Democratic Elite who believed that America would elect a stone cold bi…err….Hillary Clinton as our president.

Just as it was blatantly obvious that the “Trial By Media” of Judge Roy Moore was a set-up, it has also now come into sharp focus as to who was pulling the strings of the marionettes involved and why.

Breitbart.com reported on Monday that

Politico reported on Monday that the George Soros-funded Priorities USA Action and Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) Senate Majority PAC are the dark money behind the Alabama shell group that has spent more than $4.1 million to defeat conservative Republican Roy Moore in Tuesday’s Alabama U.S. Senate special election in which he faces liberal Democrat Doug Jones:

Highway 31, which has dropped more than $4.1 million in support of Jones and against Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s Senate special election, is a joint project of two of the largest national Democratic super PACs — Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action — along with a group of Alabama Democrats, multiple senior officials familiar with the arrangement told POLITICO.

Highway 31 filed its statement of organization with the Federal Election Commission on November 6, and in its 36 days of existence has delivered almost all of its $4.1 million of political messaging on credit provided by its largest vendors, three secretive Washington D.C. based consulting firms founded and run by former Obama campaign staffers.

The firms are Waterfront Strategies, a wholly owned subsidiary of GMMB Consulting, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Jim Margolis; Bully Pulpit Interactive, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Andrew Bleeker; and Putnam Partners, founded and run by former Obama campaign staffer Mark Putnam.

Federal Election Commission records show that Priorities Action USA raised and spent $192 million in the 2016 election cycle. The vast majority of the funds raised–$130 million out of $192 million–was donated by 37 individuals, each of whom donated more than $500,000. Among the top donors were New York City financier James Simons, who donated $11 million; Fred Eyechaner of Chicago, Illinois, who donated $11 million; George Soros, who donated $9.5 million; his son Alex Soros, who donated $1 million; and Hollywood mavens Steven Spielberg and Jeff Katzenberg, who donated $1 million each.

Not a single one of these 37 individuals are residents of Alabama–14 are from California, nine are from New York, five are from Florida, three are from Illinois, two are from Connecticut, and one each are from Washington, D.C., Michigan, Texas, and Nevada.

The Senate Majority PAC spent almost all the $92 million it raised in the 2016 election cycle. Two-thirds of the money it raised came from donors who gave more than $200. George Soros was among those larger donors, contributing $1.5 million, as was his son, Alex Soros, who contributed $3.5 million.

Neither PAC has filed a report with the FEC since the period ending on June 30, 2017. Their next required filings, covering the period between July 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017, are not required to be filed with the FEC, by law, until January of 2018.

Nor is the Alabama-based shell independent organization it spawned, Highway 31, required to file another financial status report with the FEC until January 21, 2018, more than a month after Tuesday’s election.

Circumstantial evidence to support Monday’s report in Politico that Highway 31 “is a joint project” between Priorities USA Action PAC and the Senate Majority PAC can be found in the 2016 election cycle reports filed with the FEC by the Senate Majority PAC. The majority of the $91 million it spent in the 2016 election cycle–a little more than $65 million–was paid to a single vendor: Waterfront Strategies, the same consulting firm that provided more than $1 million of advertising services to Highway 31 between November 6 and November 22, entirely on credit.

November 22 was the ending period of the first and only financial status report that Highway 31 filed with the FEC. It showed that as of that date, the shell group had no assets and no cash, but owed Waterfront Strategies, Bully Pulpit Interactive, and Putnam Partners a little more than $1.7 million for services provided between November 6 and November 22.

Since November 22, Highway 31 incurred an additional $2.4 million in advertising expenditures, bringing its total to $4.1 million.

It is not known if Highway 31’s vendors have provided these additional services on credit to date.

It hardly matters, because it seems quite likely that at some point subsequent to the election on Tuesday, any one of the wealthy liberal donors who have funded Priorities USA Action PAC and the Senate Majority Fund–George Soros, James Simon, Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg–can stroke a check for the full amount of any debts incurred by Highway 31, and the money will be passed through the Priorities USA Action PAC or the Senate Majority Fund to Highway 31 and immediately moved on to the vendors.

Though “multiple senior officials familiar with the arrangement”– presumably at Priorities USA Action PAC and the Senate Majority Fund –appeared eager to share their dark money secret, on background of course, with Politico the day before the Alabama U.S. Senate special election, a spokesperson for Highway 31 chose to play it coy when contacted by Breitbart News.

“Highway 31 continues to follow every appropriate rule and regulation. Highway 31 will file contributors per the FEC reporting schedule,” Highway 31 executive director Adam Muhlendorf told Breitbart News when asked to confirm or deny the Politico report that the PAC “is a joint project of two of the largest national Democratic super PACs — Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action.”

It wasn’t bad enough that Moore was fighting against these two huge Progressive Democrat Super Pacs…he was fighting the GOP Elite…the Vichy Republicans…also!!!

Spineless Vichy Republicans have been a barrier to Republican victory for as long as I can remember. Like Quakers, Establishment Republicans seem to believe that passive resistance and reaching out to their sworn enemies as “friends”, is the way to defeat those who oppose you.

It was especially bad during Obama’s reign, as the House and Senate Republican Leadership apparently cherished their friendship with the Democrats more than they did the wishes of the folks back home. Yes, they talked a good game, but so did Jon Lovitz in those “Liar Sketches” during the old days of Saturday Night Live, back when they were actually funny.

Yeah,  my wife Morgan Fairchild. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket!

and now, at almost the end of the first year of Trump’s Presidency, Congress remains oblivious to the anger of average Americans, living here in the Heartland, during the 2016 President Election, which gave them control of Capitol Hill.

It is that same anger that led to the defeat of Luther Strange and the victory of the “outsider”, Former Judge Roy Moore, who seemed to be a shoo-in to be a two-year Replacement Senator from Alabama.

The President needs to hold meetings with Congressional Leaders and point out the glaring lesson in the state of Modern American Politics that Alabama taught yesterday.

That lesson is the fact that the Republican Establishment teamed up with the Democrats and George Soros to defeat an individual whom they deemed “not worthy enough” to be a U.S. Senator.

The same fate would have befallen Donald J. Trump in November of 2016, if this new “Axis of Evil” had not greatly underestimated “the Trump Train”.

I hope that the Vichy Republicans, sitting on their bar stools at the GOP Elite Country Club, are ready for the blowback which they are about to receive.

Americans have had their fill of Establishment Politicians on both sides of the aisle, who only pretend to listen to “the folks back home” during obligatory Town Hall Meetings and when they are out stumping for re-election to their phony baloney jobs.

“Hrumph!”

Like the Far Left Democrats, the Vichy Republicans once again, of their own volition, have placed themselves, like the mythical gods on Mount Olympus, completely out-of-touch with us “little people”…the Americans whom they purport to represent.

And, like the before-mentioned Democrats, McConnell, Ryan, et al, will also find themselves out of power after the Mid-term Elections of 2018, if they do not immediately start treating average Americans here in the Heartland who placed an “outsider” in the Presidency, with the respect due us…

…AS THEIR BOSS.

And, if they don’t, then it will be up to us voters to continue the job of “Draining the Swamp” that President Trump has started.

Until He Comes,

Pelosi Defends Conyers. Still Calls for Moore to Exit Race. Irony is Embarrassed.

November 27, 2017

Nancy-Pelosi-with-John-Conyers-940x460

Man is the Only Animal that Blushes. Or needs to. Mark Twain, “Following the Equator”, 1897

NBCNews.com reports that

Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., stepped down as the ranking Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee on Sunday, following sexual harassment accusations. The 27-term congressman said he denied the allegations, but was stepping down because of the ongoing House Ethics Committee investigation.

“I deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. I very much look forward to vindicating myself and my family before the House Committee on Ethics,” Conyers said in a statement.

“To be clear, I would like very much to remain as Ranking Member,” he added. “There is still much work to be done on core concerns like securing civil rights, enacting meaningful criminal justice reform, and protecting access to the ballot box.”

Appearing on “Meet The Press” earlier in the day, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi urged “due process” before making conclusions about Rep. Conyers, saying the congressman is “an icon” who has worked to protect women.

“We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused — and was it one accusation? Is it two?” Pelosi asked.

“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left — right-wing — is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added. “But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don’t, I believe he will do the right thing.”

Conyers’ office recently confirmed issuing a settlement of $27,000 to a former staffer who says she was fired for resisting the congressman’s sexual advances. Conyers has acknowledged the payout, which he said amounted to a severance package, but he denied the allegations about what it was for.

The payout from Conyers’ office first became public in a report published by Buzzfeed on Monday, and came after a number of men in powerful positions in politics, entertainment and media have faced public accusations of sexual harassment. The accusations have opened up a national conversation about how women are treated in the workplace by men in positions of power.

When asked specifically whether she believes the accusations against Conyers, Pelosi said: “I do not know who they are. Do you? They have not really come forward.”

She repeatedly said that she wants to see the House Ethics Committee investigation of Conyers play out.

Conyers has held the powerful position on Capitol Hill as the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee for a decade, but after Pelosi’s interview on Sunday, he announced that he would step down from the position while the Ethics Committee investigates.

Pelosi said in a statement later Sunday, “Zero tolerance means consequences. I have asked for an ethics investigation, and as that investigation continues, Congressman Conyers has agreed to step aside as Ranking Member.”

On “Meet The Press,” Pelosi was also asked whether she would accept an apology from Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, who has apologized after being accused of unwanted touching from multiple women, if no other accusers surfaced. “His accusers have to accept an apology,” Pelosi said. “The victims have some say in all of this, as well. And that has happened in the past. People have accepted an apology, as is coming forth now that I see in the press.”

The reporting process on Capitol Hill for sexual harassment claims is a very long and arduous process that can take months to play out, but Pelosi said the House is expected to soon take up new action aimed at preventing such conduct when they vote this week on a resolution that would require all lawmakers and their staff members to go through anti-harassment training. The Senate passed a similar measure earlier this month.

Pelosi’s comments Sunday also came while Democrats and many Republican leaders have called for Alabama’s GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to exit the race, since Moore is facing sexual misconduct accusations from nine women, including one who says he molested her when she was 14 and he was 32. Moore has denied all of the allegations.

Ohio Sen. Rob Portman is one of the Republican lawmakers who has called for Moore to step aside, and on Sunday said that if he were a voter in Alabama, he’d “probably vote for a Republican, but it wouldn‘t be Roy Moore.”

“As the women went on the record, I thought there was a lot of credibility in what they were saying,” Portman said on “Meet The Press.” “I didn’t find the response very credible and that’s how I came up with my position.”

As the national conversation on sexual harassment has accelerated, the reaction to numerous allegations from the 1990s has also been revisited.

Anita Hill accused U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment when she worked for him at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and later testified about it during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearing. Thomas denied the allegations.

Now a professor at Brandeis University, Hill said on “Meet The Press” that “unfortunately, 26 years ago, Washington wasn’t ready to lead on this issue, and I’m afraid even today Washington cannot lead the country on this issue. There seems to be so many conflicted feelings and understandings about what needs to happen when sexual misconduct occurs.”

Pelosi, meanwhile, also said the reaction to sexual misconduct accusations against former President Bill Clinton from that era versus today represent “obviously a generational change.”

“The concern that we had then was that they were impeaching the president of the United States, and for something that had nothing to do with the performance of his duties, and trying to take him out for that reason,” Pelosi added. “But let’s go forward. Let’s go forward. I think that something wonderful is happening now, very credible. It’s 100 years, almost 100 years, since women got the right to vote. Here we are, almost 100 years later, and something very transformative is happening.”

One lies and the other swears to it.

If anyone still has any questions as to how Billionaire Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump got elected President of the United States, here’s the answer.

The duplicitous dealings, perversions, peccadilloes, self-entitlement, and downright lying of the Political Elite…on BOTH sides of the Congressional Aisle.

In the case of the recent explosive revealing of sexual harassment and abuse by Congressmen, they have all turned out to be Democrats.

The same Democrats who have been looking down their noses at us average Americans for decades, calling us “Bitter Clingers” in front of their Big Money Donors, while chases their Congressional Pages, Interns, and Office Staff around in their BVDs,

“Icon”, my hindquarters.

The word “delusional” does not even begin to cover San Fran Nan’s illogical statement.

Nancy Pelosi’s station in life defies logic.

That has to be the most tone-deaf statement made about a Philandering Congressman since Wilber Mills (D-AR), was caught fooling around with Fanne Fox, a local DC Stripper, who, when caught drunken driving with Mills, attempted to jump attempted to jump in the Tidal Basin to elude police.

For her to completely ignore the current Democratic Congressional Sexual Abuse Scandal, as pertains Conyers detailed decades of systematic abuse,does not just “strain” credulity…it stomps that sucker flat.

There are two possibilities for Pelosi’s misjudgment of the American People:

She has been so sheltered from us “rabble” during all of those years up on Capitol Hill, that she simply is clueless to the daily lives of average Americans and how we feel on the issues of the day. Or…

She is a victim of galloping dementia.

It is probably both.

For years, the hypocrisy of sanctimonious Liberals, who considered themselves to be the “Smartest People in the Room” made them the Darlings of the Hoi Polloi, the “Captains of the Country Club Crowd” and go-to sources for the Main Stream Media, who hung of their every didactic word as they told average Americans how they should live, how they should raise their children, and how they should allow them to complete run their lives from cradle to grave.

And now, it turns out that all those years that they considered themselves to be of “Royal Blood”, their personal lives had all of the class and morality of the old Redd Foxx “Party” Albums that teenagers used to “borrow” from their parents to listen to and giggle.

It is imperative that average Americans finish what they started on November 8m 2016 in the Presidential Election when the Midterm Elections arrive in 2018.

We must DRAIN THE DC SWAMP.

The stench of Swamp Gas being produced by the Congresscritters who have over-stayed their welcome is overwhelming,

Until He Comes,
