From what I have heard while speaking to a couple of Russian tourist's who clearly stated with certainty is that Russia does not want war. I believe and trust this.

I hate the word "sanctions"…what an ugly word. Ick. The idea is disgusting but the actual sound of the word is terrible. Why does our country behave like an old fashioned school marm handing out punishments to the "bad" children? It's gross.

You don't need a law degree to see that Trump aided and abetted Russia with interfering in our election, that should be unacceptable to both Democrats and Republicans!

You don't know how deep Russia controls Trump and the evangelical churches. America is going to join with Russia to become Amerrussia. That's the plan. Look at Maria Butina. Thats just a microcosm. There are millions of Russians here already.

Russia has not intention of firing the first shot. Putin has stated repeatedly that Russia will defend itself. usa the one with 1,000 foreign military bases, usa the one interfering..
not Russia…Russia did not interfere..and as of 2019, Russia is self-sufficient from the rest of the world…that what Russia was doing while usa been poking their selves in the eye with this clown government they elected because they did not want hillarys war machine
usa is lying. and the world knows it. usa go home clean your room. you should be grounded

"It was Obama! Obama was the source of Russia gate…" (Crickets) Also didn't the media say that Obama and Putin had a secret that they tried to catch on microphone to prove him being treasonous? So is Obama or the media responsible for cooking this up? After all they ran the same playbook on Trump… Also ever seen that letter from the Pope to Obama? Even in there it says the Generals do not have to obey his command… So yeah. Also like he said if it is normal for presidents to establish back channels with other countries (I.E. the… Read more »

It's a matter of fact that we hack everyone, collude and interfere everywhere! You name it and we do it!
So, why are we so indignant when another country does the same to us? I don't get it. Is it just play acting for the uninformed masses? If so, why do the media go along with the act so willingly and pretty much completely?

Stephen Cohen patiently and knowledgeably schools Paul Jay. Can't wait to hear the "disagreement" in the second installment.

Professor Cohen was too easy on Mr Jay whose thinking is clouded by the Russophobia that has been pounded into his head since he was old enough to read. There is no proof that 'Russian Bots' even tried to effect the election. The ads on fb&twitter&google did not tell people who to vote for and half of these ads came AFTER the election. The bottom line is that Mr Jay is unable to think because his critical thinking has been short circuited so his Lizard Brain has taken over.

If Russia meddled in the elections, American Corporations, and so on have been doing the same. The American public is so lazy and ill informed it would not be hard.

Right after WWII, as Paul Jay well knows, a battered Soviet Russia was selected by Wall Street as the necessary threat needed to sell a war-weary public on paranoiac vigilance and imperialist expansion. Politicians have exploited this then and now, and our vast and burdensome military-industrial- national security complex is the result.

I voted for Obama, twice. We now know that the dangerous situations that he created or allowed to evolve are too numerous to account for. Now he’s a zillionaire vagabond roaming the venues of Europe trying to find moronic groups that are willing to pay him bribe money for listening to his smooth-talking spin.

All Russia did was foment propaganda over the internet . Well most people are spreading bullshit over the internet and social media . That's not the same as hacking into voting places and machines . Trump and Clinton are both scumbags . Trump because of his conflict of interest in keeping his business interests going in Russia . Clinton in every speech on her campaign that Russia was our most dangerous enemy , Russia always enemy — perhaps to divert the people from her and the corrupt dnc keeping Sanders from being the candidate to run against Trump and probably… Read more »

They have both interfered in both "WW1 and WW2. The "Zionist" are behind all these "elections" and Wars, conflicts, and Revolutions (French). The Truth in History has exposed these things although they have tried to keep it secret. They play in all the teams, pitting one against the other to accomplish their goals. They created "Communism, Socialism, Apartheid and Capitalism" where only the "Elitists" have the "wealth and control". The populace are just "pawns" in their game to accomplish their agenda, in any way they can.

Any channel descibing itself as: "real news" or "the truth" should be considered "liars"…..

You can see the host of this show speaks out of the side of his mouth (just like Michael Cohen)….

but yes, the russians are nice people….just ask the people sent to siberia….

What about Obama meddling in the Brexit referendum? going over, pleading to the country in front of parliament to "vote Remain!" I mean, Jeez, did Putin do that during the 2008 election?
