  1. Seeing an American stand up to Putin like that reminds me of the one time, the Stable Genius said he believed Putin didn’t interfere with the 2016 election in front of the whole world to see. Real power move right there!

    1. Dr.SHIVA’s Historic First Amendment Lawsuit to Win Back Freedom: First Case in U.S. To Show Government MADE Twitter Silence Political Speech

    2. CONTRIBUTE TO WIN BACK FREEDOM
      This is the first lawsuit to expose how the government censors U.S. citizens’ speech on Twitter. For years we were told Twitter acts on its own as a private company and you cannot question their decisions. Following the deplatforming of Dr.SHIVA, testimony and hearings in Federal court elicited how government and Twitter have created an infrastructure for government to launder censorship of speech through Twitter. This website provides all documents as they emerge in this historic lawsuit. The presiding Federal Judge declared this case is one of substantial constitutional consequences and a lawsuit that will likely become “a law school exam in Constitutional Law.”

      Dr.SHIVA is representing himself against BIG LAW and BIG TECH. It’s truly a David and Goliath story. We the people versus the elite who never liked the First Amendment. Kindly contribute whatever you can, even $1.

    1. @Grand Wonder don’t have the time to address every proposed question barely have the energy. Trumps not the president, but everything turns into trump.

    2. Orange man bad nazi. Reporting is dissipating from real journalism. It’s interns and journalists doing the bidding of their media firms CEO’s. If the narrative doesn’t fit, the checks don’t get cashed. Look what happened to that fox26 reporter recently. Might I remind you every left leaning media firm is owned (controlled) by less than 7 people combined* who can fortify mass opinion with their objective narrative.

    3. While what happened to him does matter that’s something that people said not to go back to russia…yes he had no fear and went back and it was a brave thing but back in the US there is much bigger problems we have Trumps bs his trying to over throw a election ..awe have his people threatening people who were just counting votes doing their job…more and more coming out of his wacko conspiracys and people are divided…screw the issues of Putin’s treatment or human rights violations..Trump is the US problem and it’s Putin’s weapon …the more and more we can rid The US OF TRUMP AND PUTINS HOLD ON US CITIZENS…..

    4. The United States moved from security
      provider to security consumer….this is TRUMP and the hold Putin has on him…

  2. Least important public exchange. He gave him a list of US targets to not attack. It’s like the DARE program telling kids not to do drugs

  3. Fun to see Putin squirm. And it’s important for the world (and Russians) to hear him being asked hard questions in public as though it’s a very normal thing.
    PS Appreciate the new ending to the MSNBC news clips. Thanks!

    1. The Russian Navy is conducting what Russian officials call its largest exercise in the Pacific Ocean since the end of the Cold War. The exercise, about 300-500 miles west of Hawaii, comes just ahead of the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Joe Biden, their first since Mr. Biden took office in January.

  4. Ummm Free and Fair elections it ain’t rocket science. Putin took 1 year to rid Russia of independent media, 4 years to dismantle their electoral system and their Judiciary collapsed unnoticed.

  5. That reporter had better be extra careful Putin doesn’t take being shown up or confronted lightly just ask Navalny and the Skripols poisoned in the UK in their home.

  6. : Yep, this is a case of, ABC news’ Rachel Scott asking a very good question;
    That got ridiculously answered, by Putin.

    (Definitely going to add this YouTube video, to the playlist;
    ie Good question, answered ridiculously)

  7. Is this KGB meathead equating the Jan 6 insurrection with legitimate Russian political opposition?

  8. While it is great that they are asking Putin tough questions, back in the US they get very quiet with very few exceptions. Only Jim Acosta asked Drumpf like that, the others were sitting there listening quietly to all the orange bs.
