Vladimir Putin on the rise of ISIS

The "usual suspects" went berserk when Donald Trump claimed Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton were the "founders" of ISIS. To any normal person, it was clear that Trump was pinning responsibility for the rise of ISIS on the worse than failed foreign "policies" of Obama-Clinton. But the "usual suspects" created their own narrative (again) that took Trump's words literally, as if he had claimed Al Gore founded the internet. But several years ago Vladimir Putin had already noted the role of the Obama administration in the rise and success of ISIS. So who are the real fools? Trump and Putin, or the "usual suspects" with their silly narrative that absolves Obama and Clinton of any responsibility for the rise of ISIS as a worldwide terrorist threat?

When the massive Hillary Clinton Political Action Committee (HC-PAC) (aka, the national news media) went berserk over Donald Trump's campaign rally claim that Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton "founded" ISIS, you'd have thought he'd said something really stupid, like, for example, "Al Gore founded the internet."

But the Clinton media PAC lives in its own reality. While any normal person understood Trump as correctly blaming Obama-Clinton's utterly disastrous US foreign policy in Northern Africa and the Middle East for the rise of ISIS, the "usual suspects" are simply incapable of grasping that clear connection with such clarity.

Certainly, Russia's Vladimir Putin understands Trump's perception. Several years ago Putin noted the Obama administration's role in the rise and success of ISIS.

Here is a transcription of the translation of Vladimir Putin speaking about the Obama administration's role in the rise of ISIS:

I’ve said this before. Another threat that President Obama mentioned was ISIS. Well, who on earth armed them?

Who armed the Syrians that were fighting with Assad?

Who created the necessary political/informational climate that facilitated this situation?

Who pushed for the delivery of arms to the area?

Do you really not understand as to who is fighting in Syria? They are mercenaries, mostly. Do you understand they are paid money? Mercenaries fight for whichever side pays more.

So they arm them and pay them a certain amount. I even know what these amounts are.

So they fight, they have the arms, you can’t get them to return the weapons of course, at the end. Then they discover elsewhere pays a little more so they go fight there.

Then they occupy the oil fields. Wherever; in Iraq, in Syria. They start extracting the oil — and this oil is purchased by somebody.

Where are the sanctions on the parties purchasing this oil?

Do you believe the US does not know who is buying it? Is it not their allies that are buying oil from ISIS? Do you not think the US has the power to influence their allies? Or is the point that they indeed do not wish to influence them?

Then why bomb ISIS?

In areas where they started extracting oil and paying mercenaries more — in those areas, the rebels from “civilized” Syrian opposition forces immediately joined ISIS because they are paid more.

I consider this absolutely unprofessional politics. It is not grounded on facts, in the real world.

We must support civilized, democratic opposition in Syria.

Watch Putin's comments on YouTube:

Those living in the real world will concur with Putin's characterization of the Obama Administration's responsibility for the rise of ISIS and agree when Putin concludes:  "I consider this absolutely unprofessional politics. It is not grounded on facts, in the real world".

So who are the real fools? Trump and Putin, or the "usual suspects" with their silly narrative that absolves Obama and Clinton of any responsibility for the rise of ISIS as a worldwide terrorist threat?

Meanwhile, disconnected "insider" Republican-in-name-only (RINO) whiners and their friends in the Clinton media fantasyland view Trump's comments as "dangerous".

But which is really more dangerous to world peace and the safety of the people of the United States?

  1. The Obama-Clinton disastrous foreign policy that destabilized Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, and Turkey, and has led to the dramatic rise of ISIS? Or,
  2. Donald Trump's characterization of the Obama-Clinton disastrous foreign policy as creating the climate that "founded ISIS"?

Despite the best efforts of the "usual suspects" to spin reality into their fantasy world, people living in the real world know Trump is absolutely correct.

Biography - Bob Webster

Author of "Looking Out the Window", an evidence-based examination of the "climate change" issue, Bob Webster, is a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s). He is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
