It doesn’t get much worse than the monsters over at ISIS. Murder, rape, torture. They have pretty much established themselves as the worst group of people on the planet. Sadly, President Obama never took them seriously. He even referred to the as the JV team and created a perfect climate for them to grow when he prematurely pulled out of Iraq against the wishes of his generals. The battle against ISIS was one of the most glaring blemishes on Obama’s disastrous foreign policy record.
Since Trump has taken over, things have been different. Gen. James Mattis has been hammering ISIS left and right in a variety of ways. I think we all remember this move.
At least 94 Islamic State fighters were killed when the US military dropped America’s most powerful non-nuclear bomb on ISIS targets in Afghanistan, an Afghan official said Saturday.
“The number of Daesh fighters killed in the US bomb in Achin district jumped to 94, including four commanders,” Nangarhar provincial spokesman Attaullah Khogiani told CNN, using an alternative name for ISIS.
“Our team is in the area and they are doing clearance, so the figure might change as they find more bodies,” said Dawlat Waziri, a spokesman for the Afghan Ministry of Defense.
That pretty much sums up the Trump administration’s battle against ISIS.
For years, ISIS has maintained a capital city in Raqqa, Syria where they have been committing unspeakable crimes against humanity.
We are pleased to report that is officially over.
Raqqa has fallen to U.S. backed forces.

From The Daily Caller:
U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) claim to have full control over the Islamic State’s capital of Raqqa, according to a Tuesday statement.
The U.S.-led, anti-ISIS coalition Operation Inherent Resolve hasn’t made the same claim, saying approximately 90 percent of the city was under SDF control.
“The military operations in Raqqa have finished, but there are clearing operations now under way to uncover any sleeper cells there might be and remove mines,” SDF spokesman Talal Sello told BBC News, adding to AFP, “Everything is finished in Raqqa, our forces have taken full control of Raqqa.”
Gotta love that.
It is pretty remarkable how the mainstream media has let Obama off the hook for the rise of ISIS.
Trump once famously said that Obama was the founder of ISIS.
The media freaked out but every rational person knows exactly what he was talking about.
Obama pulled out of Iraq too early and allowed ISIS to gain strength. He even sat around mocking them while they grew.
Even CNN didn’t understand what Obama was doing.
Obama’s fight against ISIS was a miserable failure.
Donald Trump’s ISIS plan has been phenomenal.
From New York Times:
American-backed forces said on Tuesday that they had seized the northern Syrian city of Raqqa from the Islamic State, a major blow to the militant group, which had long used the city as the de facto capital of its self-declared caliphate.
The apparent rout of the last Islamic State fighters touched off celebrations in Raqqa, where residents had lived under the repressive rule of militantswho beheaded people for offenses as minor as smoking. Fighters could be seen cheering and firing celebratory gunfire in the streets, according to residents reached by phone and text message.
ISIS has been on the run ever since Trump took office and now their stronghold has fallen.
They will still be capable of carrying out attacks. They will have that capability as long as they have a handful of members. However, their ability to recruit will take a huge hit as a result of this development.
Also, the many atrocities they were carrying out on a daily basis in Raqqa appear to now be over. That’s incredible news.
Looks like good has finally prevailed over evil in this one.
