Actor’s New Showtime Show Blasting Republicans Backfires in the Best Way

Actor and supposed comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, the brilliant mind — sarcasm — who brought you cutting edge entertainment like Borat, recently put together a show called “Who Is America?” aimed at mocking conservatives.

The show debuted on Showtime, but unfortunately for Mr. Cohen, the initial numbers for the program are not looking good. Not at all. In fact, only 327,000 people tuned in.

Perhaps folks are finally getting sick and tired of every piece of entertainment being pushed out of the bowels of Hollywood having some sort of political agenda? Wouldn’t that be nice?

“Among the key demographic of adults 18-49, Who Is America? pulled in a low 0.1 rating. That put the secretive and controversial Who Is America? in the hinterland of the 70th highest-rated original show on cable on July 15,” Deadline reported.

What shows beat him? Nearly everyone.

In comparison and airing in the same 10 PM ET slot as Who Is America?, Fox Sports 1 had UFC Fight Night with a 0.3 rating and 754,000 viewers. Over on Home, House Hunters Renovation snagged a 0.3 in the key demo too. However, the politics free HHR also pulled in an audience of 1.4 million.

Cohen was pummeled at in the 10 p.m. slot, Showbiz411 reported.

“Mexico Life” was among the shows on cable that did five or six times the business. (1.9 million viewers). Something called “On the Case with PZ” on Discovery had 1.5 million. “History of Comedy” on CNN had 764K. That’s twice as many as Cohen’s show.

But Showbiz411 said Showtime claimed the numbers were much higher. “Showtime says ‘Who is America?’ actually was seen by over 1 million people when [you] include all platforms including several showings that were streamed and beamed and telegraphed.”

But the showbiz website also said, “Basically, ‘Who is America?’ didn’t make the top 25 cable shows on Sunday night. It was a bust.”

Cohen is the type of guy who simply goes for shock value, recognizing that he basically has little to no real, tangible acting talent with which to create appealing visual art. Unlike master character actors like Martin Short, Steve Martin, Jim Carrey — although he’s gone nuts these days — and many others who came before him, Cohen creates belligerent man child types and does essentially the same spiel with every single one of them. He pretends to be really rude and juvenile while supposedly making a point.

He fails miserably.

Perhaps he ought to find a new line of work?

American Missionaries, Including Children, Kidnapped in Haiti

The FBI has now gotten involved as well.

Published

on

There is once again trouble in the unsettled streets of Haiti, and this time there are American lives at stake.

As the tiny island nation continues to suffer from unrest and an unhealthy escalation of gang-related violence, a number of American missionaries from Ohio have been kidnapped.

A group of 17 U.S. missionaries including children was kidnapped by a gang in Haiti on Saturday, according to a voice message sent to various religious missions by an organization with direct knowledge of the incident.

The missionaries were on their way home from building an orphanage, according to a message from Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries.

“This is a special prayer alert,” the one-minute message said. “Pray that the gang members would come to repentance.”

The message says the mission’s field director is working with the U.S. Embassy, and that the field director’s family and one other unidentified man stayed at the ministry’s base while everyone else visited the orphanage.

On Tuesday, it was revealed that the FBI had gotten involved, and other entities within the federal government were doing all they could to help.

The State Department said Sunday its officials have been in “regular contact” with Haitian authorities “and will continue to work with them and interagency partners” to recover the group, a spokesperson told ABC News. The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is leading coordination with local authorities and providing assistance to the families, Psaki added.

The Haitian government suspects the gang known as 400 Mawozo to be responsible for the abductions, according to a source at the Haitian presidential office.

Haiti’s gang violence has now cemented the nation as the kidnapping capital of the world, with over 600 such crimes having occurred there in 2021 alone.

Southwest Airlines Hit by Major Employee Protest Over Vaccine Mandate

And just one week after a mysterious mass cancelation of flights.

Published

on

Just a week ago, Southwest Airlines was in the midst of a massive and troublesome cancelation of flights, with some estimates suggesting that nearly one third of the company’s entire fleet was grounded.

Southwest was quick in trying to get out ahead of the controversy, blaming weather and air traffic control issues for the massive trouble, but astute researchers were quick to point out that ATC hadn’t suggested anything of the sort on their end, and that the percentage of all canceled flights that belonged to Southwest was indicative of a problem within the airline itself.

Many began to suggest that the airline was suffering from the fallout of their coming vaccine mandate, and new evidence this week seems to refute the company’s claim to the contrary.

Current and former Southwest Airlines workers gathered to protest recent COVID-19 vaccination mandates on Monday, Oct. 18.

They gathered to celebrate “medical freedom” at the airline’s headquarters in Dallas.

Chopper 11 flew over the group of hundreds of people holding signs that said, “Terminate the mandate,” “freedom not force” and “no jabs for jobs,”

Southwest set its deadline the first week of October under a federal vaccination mandate for employees of companies holding contracts with the U.S. government. But workers can seek medical or religious exemptions. Workers have until late November to comply with the vaccine mandate.

Employers who have embraced vaccine mandates have suffered greatly in recent weeks, as Americans continue to exercise their right to bodily sovereignty in the face of growing pressure to receive the jab.
