Israel Continues to Spy on USA

Post by Fat Cat » Thu Sep 12, 2019 5:43 pm

Israel was allegedly behind the Stingray spy devices discovered around Washington, D.C. in 2017, according to an explosive new report from Politico, which notes that they were primarily intended to spy on President Donald Trump and his associates. The Israeli government denies the charge, but Politico’s sources include at least three unnamed former U.S. officials who “served in top intelligence and national security posts.”

One former senior intelligence official noted that after the FBI and other agencies concluded that the Israelis were most likely responsible for the devices, the Trump administration took no action to punish or even privately scold the Israeli government.

“The reaction ... was very different than it would have been in the last administration,” this person said. “With the current administration, there are a different set of calculations in regard to addressing this.”
Because American government is completely in the pocket of Israel.

How much of our money, resources, and lives have gone to Israel fighting their battles to the last American?

They spy on us like no one's bidness. Always have. It is in their highest possible interest.

No idea but you can see the pace of Israeli domination of American politics increasing, and it comes from both parties. The whole thing is nauseating from the standpoint of national pride.

Yes, and the counterargument that all countries spy is true as well, but that there is no push back is troubling. Our foreign aid, our foreign policy, and our domestic politics are all so utterly obsequious to Israel that it's hard to think of any other nation that gets so much for so little and shows so little appreciation for it.

Trump uses an unsecured phone constantly. *i* would put a stinger out just to see WTF he talks to Hannity about as the adderal starts to drift.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

That thing is probably the United Nations of spyware, 32GB of hacked apps monitoring every sensor and IO, communicating back to caverns all over the globe on every continent.

So a foreign nation, ostensibly an ally, is caught spying on us and the sum of your response is "muh Trump"? Maybe stick to reviewing comedies?

I'm not sure how much of this is it being Israel to you. I'd favor withdrawing all aid from Israel for any number of things they've done. They're not an ally in any traditional sense.

Any friendly intelligence service that had an easy way to eavesdrop on Trump's non-secured phone would do so, and likely is. We tapped Merkel's phone, which was arguably worse, since she was allegedly taking reasonable measures to expect that to not happen.

It would be easy to claim that it has nothing to do with it being Israel, but we both know that's not true. They have completed hijacked our foreign policy, enjoy unparalleled influence and aid, and do nothing but manipulate and pervert our government.

For the record, I am for us spying on anyone and everyone and against letting anyone spy on us. Merkel is genuinely hostile to the U.S., although Germany is not, and spying on her makes perfect sense to me.
