Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

Trump’s claim that Obama and Hillary founded ISIS is pure Russian disinformation. In fact, Vladimir Putin first made the charge at the Valdai Discussion Club in 2014. He said:

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

It would have been one thing if Trump had said that the Obama/Hillary Administration supported Jihadist groups. That’s true. They supported them in Benghazi. But Russian agents in Saddam’s old intelligence service organized ISIS. We discuss that in our book Red Jihad on pages 28 and 29. The current head of al-Qaeda is also a Russian agent.

Here’s what Moscow’s Russia Today was reporting back in July of 2015: “Islamic State was not [an] accident; it was engineered, assisted, trained and deployed under the authority of the United States to invade, occupy and exploit the Middle East, while claiming liberation and democracy-building.”

The source of this claim was pro-Iranian Muslim writer Catherine Shakdam. Another source is the pro-Russian website Global Research.

Here’s an official RT video on how the U.S. supposedly created ISIS.

Sometimes the claim is made that ISIS was created by the U.S. AND Israel. This is from a website called “Veterans Today:”

The key to understanding these charges is looking at where they originate and who picks them up.

That makes Donald Trump a Putin lackey. It’s sad, but predictable at this stage of the campaign.

It’s too bad. There are so many true and factual charges he could level against Hillary, such as the lies about Benghazi and U.S. arming of Jihadist groups in Libya. Instead, he picks up Russian disinformation.

It lies in the same category as the charge that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination.

What next from Trump?
