Israel Accused of Planting Spy Devices near the White House: True or False


Israel caught planting spy devices outside White House

 The miniature surveillance devices, colloquially known as “StingRays,” mimic cell towers to fool cellphones into giving them their locations and identity information. They can also capture the contents of calls and data use.

 However, the Trump administration has cast doubts on the reports, claiming the strength of the U.S.-Israel relationship means Israel would be unlikely to engage in such a hostile act.

Foxnews.com reports: A Politico story based on interviews with former senior U.S. officials claimed that the government believes Israel planted cellphone surveillance devices in the nation’s capital over the past few years. Devices were reportedly planted near the White House and other locations. The report said the U.S., following a forensic analysis, determined that agents from Israel most likely brought them here.

“I don’t believe that. No, I don’t believe that the Israelis are spying on us,” Trump said on Thursday evening from the South Lawn, before heading to a GOP retreat in Baltimore. “I find that hard to believe.”

Current and former Israeli officials pushed back hard against the Politico report on Thursday. Amos Yadlin, the former head of the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate, reportedly called it “fake news spiced with anti-Semitism,” stating that Israel bans spying on the U.S.

A reporter for Israeli newspaper Haaretz traveling with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his office was calling the report a “blatant lie.” Like Yadlin, the office said the Israeli government has a directive not to engage in intelligence operations on U.S. soil.

The president touted the strong relationship between his administration and Israel, specifically citing the establishment of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and harsh U.S. sanctions against Iran.

“I wouldn’t believe that story,” Trump reiterated. “Anything’s possible, but I don’t believe it.”

 Tough one, Tiffany, everyone is spying on each other.

I really do not know?

Ok, what ever...

Strictly speaking if Israel planted these devices they screwed up... such devices are not supposed to be found... and if found ... they are supposed to be non-identifieable.

Reports from Three unidentified, unnamed sources ... supposedly former Administration Officials claim Israel is spying on the US of A.  Well I have it on good grounds, reports from 10 former Obama Officials that the moon is made of cheese and Obama has built a cheese processing plant on the dark side of the moon and is now selling bite size pieces of the moon... with the promise that it will regrow hair, cure cancer and make one a genuous over night.

So much, for unnamed sources and journalism by the MSM... I hear they all received franchises for moon cheese... just for reporting on this issue.

Hi Ronald, how ya doing...:)

Better .. hope you are doing well and having some success with your barbeque franchise at the local banks... Get any bites while strutting around in your pink dress? 

That ought to be something to see... Phamplets in one hand, a Nazi Swastika band on your left arm, and hundreds of on lookers, all wanting nothing more than to do some CASH banking.

You forgot the pink dress...:) for you...:)

No... it's there.. the pink dress, you simply missed it... a little comprehension problem.  Forgetting the Pink Dress would be like a child forgetting St. Clause on Christmas Day... impossible.

We can correct that problem... with a couple of sessions of Dr. Nelson's insane compression treatments... only 999.99 per dip ... and no charge for the towels... soap extra. Lilac water is available on request. Phone ahead... don't be the last to experience this great innovation of medical science.

Maybe she can find a pink dress to wear...:)

 While they spy on churches...:)

No a Pink Dress won't help and neither will a Nazi Swastika.

Opinion vary...:)

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
