I love how this clown ignored the United States' human rights record. He set up a strawman and Mr. Cohen exposed him for it and he doubled down. Wow. What a buffoon. And how he brings up that Putin is engaged with "oligarchs," but forgets to point out so do our "leaders." And what business is ours about their domestic politics? I thought we didn't like them "meddling" in our affairs? This entire thing has been and still is a bad joke. That clown then asked when was the last time we saw someone die in prison or was tortured in prison by State Officials? Did he just say that? He did say that! Wow. Hey, bro, you must have been asleep for the past few years or never watched American tragedies shooting from all corners of this nation. We've had MORE than our fair share of what you describe go down in this nation. That's not to excuse Russia for doing so, it's more about the messenger being completely full of shit than anything else. I love how Stephen turned the tables on this twit and he doesn't realize it happened. So great. And what happened to this clown? That's right, he received a promotion and now works for MSNBC, I shit you not. Yeah. Hahahaha, "get your verb-tenses right." Hahahahahahah!

How can you compare whats going on today with 1940s? Europe was ingulfed in war. And America and the USSR didn't really do much together. In both sides of the war while they were marching to Berlin, were scared ww3 might happened between the USSR and the west. Russia and America made a friendship of convenience. It wasn't anything like he paints it. . American soilders didn't fight along side the Soviets like we did with the brits or the polish. We gave them weapons and oil so they can kill and be killed more then the west

Also you still need to go through NATO protected waters to even enter the sea. How many people did Russia kill just because they got scared of the EU? Then again Russians haven't ever been that bright. . Didn't they help Hitler invade Poland?

Hahaha. I love this. The dumbass Russians think cohen won?! The brown american admits America has problems. Why can't russia do the same? Maybe becuase its ran by a group of radical idiots who think invading Crimea was a smart move? You got Crimea but lost Ukraine. Russians are sooo fucking stupid ! The Kruger effect is in full swing! Holy shit.

The host of this show crushed Cohen. . Cohen is wrong about why russia is doing what is it doing. America didn't force Russia or the EU to start pulling ukrine apart. The Europeans did it on their own and they always have been. My problem with Russia is that they care more about angering America and blaming America then ACTAULLY working with America. The only reason russia hates America is because it needs a shapegoat. Russians aren't willing to admit what they have done and instead scream "LIYBA !!! IRAQ! AFGAINTIAN!!!"

Cohen kind of dropped the ball on browder. The story is simple. Bill browder is a liar, cheat and a scam. There is no reason anyone should trust what he says. Considering how he stole billions of dollars from Russia and then ran like a bitch. It's been proven that browder is a liar. And there is no proof magnitsky was killed by Russian prison agents.

Lmao Stephen put his arm around him at 12:33 Really amazing guy Stephen. Instead of getting angry & storming out he fights through it and shows goodwill to the other guy. Got to admire Cohen for that.

My problem with Stephen F Cohen is that he is WAY to kind to the US. IS was never the greatest threat to world peace. ITs always been the US. But even when Cohen keeps on the kid gloves when criticizing the US, he is still smeared. Its disgusting to do this to a man who's first priority is peace.

haha, it's no WONDER MSNBC (I think it is, or CNN, which is the same thing) hired this clown! haha, what a hack! hahah, this clown then brings up someone dying in a Russian jail? And then says that Mr. Cohen says that Russia can't do anything wrong? Hey, that's how the United States acts, bub! You're a raging hypocrite AND hack!

Professor Cohen should have more access to American media - he has a valid point of view which is not represented well in the United States. Al Jazeera journalist is a moron. He does not allow Prof. Cohen to speak or express his position.

Cohen is not pro Russian but he is pro factual information. Of course things happen in any government that they try to hide. An example is the hacking of the German chancellors phone by us, the point is that we do just as much as anyone else. So what ? They were supposed to discuss the current situation and how both countries may have a common cause. People like this news person are a roadblock to improving relationships in the world. It was obvious he was incensed by professor Cohen pointing out his billboard splash was just a media ploy. From that point on all he could do was yell and bait and switch subjects, along with attempting to put words in the professors mouth. He is not even good at it, just disgustingly obvious.

Disqusting treatment of Cohen. Cohen's point that the USA made a coalition with STALIN against Russia made a fool of the interviewer. And the interviewer's positive view of the corrupt privatization of the Soviet Union just shows what a total idiot he is.

As the Jewtocracy initially escalated its efforts to achieve Middle East dominance, it used the tool of “Islamophobia” (a left-wing invented meme) to aid in its public relations goal of selling war to the gullible Western public. It worked. The general public, especially self-identifying conservatives, supported the war efforts (Afghanistan, Iraq). But now that we appear to be moving into the next phase of Jewish hegemony, where Islamophobia serves primarily to cover up CIA false flag terrorism (and to make future false flag ops more tenable). Today the American warmongers do not kindle Islamphobia as feverishly as they did just a few years ago. On the contrary, their media is engaged in censoring and downplaying of Islamic crimes (thanks in part to Jewish-engineered “social justice” activism). The overall media bias of the neocon days is strikingly different from that of today’s. Islam serves as the greatest proxy weapon the American neocon conspirators have ever been able to employ in their hatred for moral order. Islam: Useful idiots americans have helped and used their perceived enemies before, whether it was the Nazis, Hamas, Wahhabism, and especially Al Qaeda/ISIS/ISIL. They see the neocon-Islamic alliance as a great opportunity in finally wiping out Western civilization from the face of the Earth. And where they can, theywill continue to use false-flag terrorism, mainly through Islamic patsies (both willing and unwilling), to further their goal of destabilizing the Middle East and the West. Israel think-tank director Efraim Inbar wrote in a paper “The Destruction of Islamic State is a Strategic Mistake” that “instability and crises sometimes contain portents of positive change.” The paper went on to illustrate how ISIS was a useful tool against Russia, Iran, Syria.

The bold man is the media Troll, following his agenda. His objective was to deliberately disrupt/dilute the main discussion, and that is the situation in Siria.This is a typical example of media manipulation and public opinion conditioning. Al Jazeera is the same Troll media house as a CNN.

America cannot get over the fact that they are not longer it and the world - including my American Brothers and sisters - are looking for Putin to bring this world back on its feet. This bastard is talking about human rights, what american has been doing it for 100 years around the world. “America has a history of destabilizing and killing head of states in other countries for over one century. In 1989, it seized the Philippines, Cuba, and Puerto Rico from Spain and in 1917-18 became embroiled in World War I in Europe. In the first half of the 20th century it repeatedly sent Marines to “protectorates” such as Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. All these interventions directly served corporate interests, and many resulted in massive losses of civilians, rebels, and soldiers. Many of the uses of U.S, combat forces are documented in “A History of U.S. Military Interventions since 1890”. It is common knowledge that the engine of American foreign policy has been fueled not by a devotion to any kind of morality, but rather by the necessity to serve other imperatives, which can be summarized as follows: - Making the world safe for American corporations; - Enhancing the financial statements of defense contractors at home who have contributed generously to members of congress; - Preventing the rise of any society that might serve as a successful example of an alternative to the capitalist model; that´s why the BRICS Nations are under attack. - Extending political and economic hegemony over as wide an area as possible, as befits a "great power." - This in the name of fighting a supposed moral crusade against what cold warriors convinced themselves, and the American people, was the existence of an evil International Communist Conspiracy, which in fact never existed, evil or not. The United States carried out extremely serious interventions into more than 70 nations in this period; and Ukraine is the latest casualty.”

“The press is a gang of cruel faggots. Journalism is not a profession or a trade. It is a cheap catch-all for fuckoffs and misfits-a false doorway to the backside of life, a filthy piss-ridden little hole nailed off by the building inspector, but just deep enough for a wino to curl up from the sidewalk and masturbate like a chimp in a zoo-cage.” ― H.S.

The clinton news network rutabaga had , what he thought was an unassailable argument- this Bill guy- which he only addressed because he was certain the bill guy would give him some sort of supremacy. He meets a man with an I.Q., I don`t know, 300 points above a rutabagas, who tries to lead the discussion towards issues affecting thousands, or millions, and the rutabaga can only talk about the bill guy, or the bill guy`s lawyer(?). After all, that was, as the rutabaga pointed out, where he had devoted all of his research(?), so when issues involving thousands or millions came up all he could do was attempt a deflection back to the bill guy. The counterfeit news network, once again, demonstrates their bias and incompetence. And, in this case, I.Q..

WTF is that?!?!?!? for the cost of the F-35 strike fighter program. we could have put an entire colony on both the moon and mars. i'm not talking about cities, but permanent installations with rotating crews... HELL YEAH. some old prick says some crude shit on tv. and people go out and burn down parts of their own city. but our government sticks us in the ass. and you go online and bitch about it. WTF IS THAT SHIT?!?!?!?!? the problem with this world is not our governments... the problem with our world is the people on it. we could get rid of every single politician and military person on the planet earth tomorrow. and within a year... it would be business as usual. in almost every single year. more people die from smoking and drinking. than die in warfare. yet we spend basically NOTHING to stop, or even help, smokers and drinkers. but we spend trillions on warfare.

It is amazing how many really (and obviously) intelligent people - above average intelligence - have become involved in the Trump leadership circles and/or who make comments which are notably supportive of Trump positions and directions, be they specified or simply supportive due to their expressed opinion on a specific and politically timely subject. Compare people like this gentleman, or Sebastian Gorka, Larry Elder, Laura Ingraham, Dennis Prager, Steve Bannon and many more to the Liberal banner carriers. People like Mike Farrell...or the CNN shills Lemon et al....or this babbling al jazeera toad. Can anyone think of one true intellect that despises Trump and supports - oh, I don't know - Justin Trudeau? Or whomever is heading up the democratic party? Bueller?
