U.S. Homeland Security Investigating Swastika Drawn in Building

Internal email obtained by CNN says "there is no room in the workplace for such symbols of hate".
CNN reported over the weekend that a swastika found on the third floor of a Department of Homeland Security building in Washington has sparked an internal investigation.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper reported that staffers in the Nebrask Avenue Complex in Washington "were notified about the Nazi symbol in an email from Principal Deputy Undersecretary for the Office of Intelligence and Analysis Brian Murphy."
CNN obtained the email which said: "Unfortunately, today a hand drawn swastika was located on the third floor. First, I want to repeat what (Under Secretary for Intelligence and Analysis David Glawe), the Secretary, and many others in the Department have said in the past: there is no room in the workplace for such symbols of hate. And there is no room in the workplace for those who ascribe to such a thing. I have communicated with USIA Glawe, who is currently in Israel, and he is disgusted by what has happened."

A Startling New Look at Hitler and His Place in History

The “standard” biographies of Adolf Hitler are inadequate and fundamentally flawed, says American historian Russell Stolfi in his remarkable new book, Hitler: Beyond Evil and Tyranny.
The mass media, and even supposedly scholarly works, portray the German leader as a monstrous, criminal demagogue who was driven by irrational hatred and lust for power. In fact, contends Stolfi, Hitler was a prophetic, messianic and visionary figure, who should be understood and appreciated along with such towering personalities as Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Mohammed and Jesus.
Stolfi’s important book not only provides much-needed historical perspective. It is itself an expression of an inevitable trend toward a more valid and truthful understanding of an extraordinary historical figure.

CNN: Learn the Lessons of 9/11 by Realizing Whites are the New Terrorists

This short clip from CNN reiterates the point the mockingbird media is hammering home, that White people are an existential threat for the “civilized” world.

CPS Worker Defies Gag Order, Exposes Violent Child Sex Ring in State Foster System

Sierra Vista, AZ — While many think that the state taking children from parents is a noble gesture to protect the child, all too often, the state removes kids from a bad situation and throws them into a situation akin to a horror film. Many times the children are taken from caring parents, who happened to hit a rough patch in their lives, and thrown into torturous and outright sadistic situations where they end up raped, tortured, and even murdered.
Beth Breen, a former employee of Arizona DCS recently broke her gagging order and went on Northwest Liberty News where she detailed the horrifying treatment suffered by a young girl named Devani at the hands of the state foster system.
According to Breen, she is not supposed to speak about the case because of the gag order, but is anyway because the information is vital and the order unconstitutional.
Breene explained that she was a driver for a 5-year-old girl whose stay in foster care ended with her being permanently disfigured and fighting for her life in ICU because of her bureaucratic ‘protection’ within the system. The child, who is referred to as Jane Doe in a lawsuit, but whose real name is Devani, was taken from her parents because they had substance abuse issues.
Because her mother struggled with addiction, the state took Devani from her. Like mentioned before, they took her from a bad situation and threw her into a nightmare where she was repeatedly raped and tortured.
Breene’s job involved driving Devani from her foster home 90 miles away for a 2-hour supervised visit with her parents each week. Because the round trip was four hours, Breene spent more time with Devani than her parents.
During the interview, Breene states that there were 36 police reports made to the foster home in which Devani lived, but that they were never investigated. The foster parent, David Frodsham — the deputy commander of the Fort Huachuca Army base, a position he held after being kicked out of Afghanistan for deviant sexual behavior — would only be arrested after this monster became so overtly careless that he went to the foster office drunk to collect his check for fostering children.
Breene said she was perplexed at the fact that only three people were arrested in connection with the child sex trafficking and torture ring Frodsham was running out of his DCS-approved foster home. Instead of opening a statewide investigation after Frodsham and another sex-trafficking sicko were arrested, the state went after those who tried to expose it. During the interview, Breene explains how she was arrested for peacefully protesting the abuse of children inside the system.
In 2017, TFTP reported on Devani’s case and a subsequent lawsuit which is nothing short of something out of a horror film.
After having her child taken, Michelle Tremor-Calderon, the girl’s biological mother, began to improve her condition. With a clearer head, Tremor noticed that her daughter seemed to be deteriorating in the care of her state-appointed foster parent — David Frodsham.
“I did everything DCS wanted me to, and received certificates of completion, and was in full compliance when my rights were severed,” Tremor said.
After only a few weeks in the care of the Frodsham, multiple signs of abuse and neglect began to arise. However, no action was taken.
Tremor had pointed out, on multiple occasions, that her daughter had continued urinary-tract infections, which can sometimes indicate signs of repeated sexual abuse in children. Her concerns, however, fell on deaf bureaucratic ears.
“I told my CPS/DCS caseworker on several occasions due to my concerns, and they were all ignored,”Tremor said.
“Instead of investigating Jane Doe’s biological mother’s concerns of abuse, [DCS] and the defendant caseworkers accused her of making false and exaggerated reports to DCS,” the lawsuit states.
Despite jumping through all their hoops, the state refused to give back Tremor her daughter.
The longer she stayed away from her mom, the worst things got for little Devani.
Frodsham had been in the state’s foster program from 2002 until 2015 when he was removed after being caught DUI with children in his car — one of whom was Devani.
It was no ordinary DUI, however. This monster was so comfy with the statist system that was paying him to rape children that he went to the foster office drunk to get paid!
As the complaint notes, despite her mother’s repeated complaints, the state did not act on behalf of Devani until “David Frodsham, driving drunk, left 3-year-old Jane and another child in his parked car while he was collecting his foster parent check in a state office, while “visibly drunk and acting belligerent.”
Even after they found abused children in his car while drunk at the state office, the DCS did not conduct a review of his home. It took him getting arrested again — this time with another child rapist.
David Frodsham, the state’s choice for a better environment than her own mother, was arrested along with an active duty soldier for allegations of transferring child porn over the internet.
According to the lawsuit, “Later, David Frodsham was arrested and accused of sexual misconduct with a minor, procuring minors for sex, and possessing and/or manufacturing child pornography. Law enforcement’s investigation revealed a video made by David Frodsham of a 3- or 4-year-old girl being penetrated by an adult male and screaming for her mommy. David Frodsham pled guilty rather than face a trial and has been sentenced to 17 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections. David Frodsham was part of a pornography ring involving numerous children in his pornography and the procurement of sex for the ring.”
For more than a decade, this sicko likely preyed on children — all of whom were given to him by the State of Arizona.
Naturally, one would think, that once Tremor’s daughter was found to have been placed in a home and sexually abused because of the negligence of the state, they would give Devani back to her mom who had done everything they asked to improve her situation. However, one would be wrong.
Instead of reuniting this poor abused girl with her biological mother, she was placed into another horrifying nightmare.
Devani’s new state-appointed abuser was Samantha Osteraas. After staying with Osteraas for a few months, this little girl would be nearly killed.
According to the complaint, “Defendant Samantha Osteraas submerged and held down Jane Doe, a 5-year-old, in a bath of scalding hot water. Jane Doe suffered severe burns over 80 percent of her body. When police arrived, there was blood on the floor and pieces of Jane Doe’s skin were falling off her body. There were bruises to her neck and arms along with other signs of trauma.”
Devani was put into a medically induced coma, suffering from organ failure. She lost her toes to amputation “and will undergo lifelong operations to replace 80 percent of the skin on her body and will need incredible amounts of care for the duration of her life as a result of the abuse she suffered in the Osteraases’ home.”
No one within the agencies involved in placing this little girl in the ‘care’ of sick child abusers has been held accountable. The only means of accountability will come from this lawsuit which seeks punitive damages for negligence, respondeat superior, breach of duty, intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault and battery, and constitutional violations.
Sadly, as the Free Thought Project has reported far too many times, this is not an isolated incident. 
Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many in the mainstream media and the government refuse to see this very real epidemic of child sex trafficking in the United States. What’s more, according to the government’s own data, the vast majority of a portion of these trafficked kids are coming from the government system who promises to keep them safe—a horrifying irony indeed. But it appears to be set up this way.
This system is set up to pull children from their families for ridiculous reasons and turn them over to for profit systems—funded by your tax dollars—that use these children as cash cows and have no incentive to keep them safe.
In 1984, the United States Congress established the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and, as part of Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2013 they receive $40 million to study and track missing and trafficked children in the United States.
In 2017, NCMEC assisted law enforcement with over 27,000 cases of missing children, the majority who were considered endangered runaways.
According to their most recent report complied from FBI data and their own, of the nearly 25,000 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2017, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking. Of those, 88 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.
Showing the scope of the abuse, in 2017 alone, NCMEC’s CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation, received over 10 million reports. According to NCMEC, most of these tips were related to the following:
  • Apparent child sexual abuse images.
  • Online enticement, including “sextortion.”
  • Child sex trafficking.
  • Child sexual molestation.
Other governmental organizations have corroborated this horrifying trend. In a 2013 FBI 70-city nationwide raid, 60 percent of the victims came from foster care or group homes. In 2014, New York authorities estimated that 85 percent of sex trafficking victims were previously in the child welfare system. In 2012, Connecticut police rescued 88 children from sex trafficking; 86 were from the child welfare system. 
Equally as disturbing as the fact that most sex trafficked kids come from within the system is the fact that the FBI discovered in a 2014 nationwide raid that many foster children rescued from sex traffickers, including children as young as 11, were never reported missing by child welfare authorities.
Even high-level government officials have been ensnared in these foster care abuse scandals. As TFTP previously reported, multiple victims came forward and accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of sexually abusing them when they were children in Washington’s foster care system.
The records in that case, dating back to 1984, explicitly noted that Ed Murray should “never again be utilized as a certified CSD resource for children.” It also showed that a criminal case was brought against Murray by prosecutors but in spite of the multiple accusations, charges were somehow never filed and his records buried.
As Snopes and the mainstream media in general attempts to smear those who try to call attention to alleged and very real child trafficking, the government’s own data shows how irresponsible this is. While there are certainly some outlandish theories being presented online, the facts are outlandish enough to warrant serious scrutiny. Until this epidemic is taken seriously, the government, the media, and all those who deny it will remain complicit in keeping it going.
As Michael Dolce, who specializes in these horrific child abuse cases, pointed out last year, “we have set up a system to sex traffic American children.” Indeed, and as the mainstream media continues to sensationalize issues like the non-crisis of vaping or measles or any other fear-mongering content, they are providing perfect cover to keep that system going.
Below is the interview with Beth Breene.

The Torah Was Not Revealed Religion But “Revealed Legislation”

By Douglas Reed
From The Controversy of Zion
The theologians of Christendom claim more for this Law than the scholars of Jewry. I have before me a Christian Bible, recently published, with an explanatory note which says the five books of the Torah are “accepted as true”, and for that matter also the historical, prophetic and poetic books. This logically flows from the dogma, earlier quoted, that the Old Testament is of “equal divine authority” with the New.
The Judaist scholars say differently. Dr. Kastein, for instance, says that the Torah was “the work of an anonymous compiler” who “produced a pragmatic historical work”. The description is exact; the scribe or scribes provided a version of history, subjectively written to support the compendium of laws which was built on it; and both history and laws were devised to serve a “political” purpose.
“A unifying idea underlay it all”, says Dr. Kastein, and this unifying idea was tribal nationalism, in a more fanatical form than the world has otherwise known. The Torah was not revealed religion but, as Mr. Montefiore remarked, “revealed legislation”, enacted to an end.
While the Law was being compiled (it was not completed until the Babylonian “captivity” had ended) the last two remonstrants made their voices heard, Isaiah and Jeremiah. The hand of the Levite may be traced in the interpolations which were made in their books, to bring them into line with “the Law” and its supporting “version of history”.
The falsification is clearest in the book of Isaiah, “which is the best known case because it is the most easily demonstrable. Fifteen chapters of the book were written by someone who knew the Babylonian captivity, whereas Isaiah lived some two hundred years earlier. The Christian scholars circumvent this by calling the unknown man “Deutero-Isaiah”, or the second Isaiah.
“This man left the famous words (often quoted out of their context), “The Lord hath said… I will also give thee for a light unto the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth”. This was heresy under the Law which was in preparation and the Levite apparently added (as the same man presumably would not have written) the passages foretelling that “the kings and queens” of the Gentiles “shall bow down to thee with their face towards the earth and lick up the dust of thy feet … I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine; and all flesh shall know that I am the Lord thy Saviour and thy Redeemer” (This sounds like the voice of Ezekiel, who was the true father of the Levitical Law, as will be seen.)
Jeremiah’s book seems to have received Levitical amendment at the start, because the familiar opening passage sharply discords with other of Jeremiah’s thoughts: “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy …”
That does not sound like the man who wrote, in the next chapter:
“The word of the Lord came to me saying, Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord: I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown … What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me … my people have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters …”
Jeremiah then identified the culprit, Judah (and for this offence well may have come by his death): “The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah”.
Israel had fallen from grace, but Judah had betrayed; the allusion is plainly to the Levites’ new Law. Then comes the impassioned protest, common to all the expostulants, against the priestly rites and sacrifices:
“Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord…” (the formal, repetitious incantations) “… but thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, oppress not the stranger, the fatherless and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place” (the ritual of blood-sacrifice and the ordained murder of apostates)…
“Will ye steal, murder and commit adultery, and swear falsely… and come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations” (the ceremonial absolution after animal-sacrifice). ”
Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? . . I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices….”
In such words Jeremiah, like Jesus later, protested against the “destruction” of the Law in the name of its fulfilment. It seems possible that even in Jeremiah’s time the Levites still exacted the sacrifice of firstborn children, because he adds,
And they have built the high place… to burn their sons and daughters in the fire; which I commanded not, neither came it into my heart”.
Because of these very “abominations”, Jeremiah continued, the Lord would “cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride; for the land shall be desolate”.
This is the famous political forecast which was borne out; the Levites, with their genius for perversion, later invoked it to support their claim that Judah fell because their Law was not observed, whereas Jeremiah’s warning was that their Law would destroy “treacherous Judah”. Were he to rise from the earth today he might use the word without change in respect of Zionism, for the state of affairs is similar and the ultimate consequence seems equally foreseeable.
When Judah fell Jeremiah gave his most famous message of all, the one to which the Jewish masses today often instinctively turn, and the one which the ruling sect ever and again forbids them to heed: “Seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it; for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace”. The Levites gave their angry answer in the 137th Psalm:
“By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept….. Our tormentors asked of us mirth: Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land? If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth… O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed, happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones”.
In Jeremiah’s admonition and the Levites’ reply lies the whole story of the controversy of Zion, and of its effects for others, down to our day.
Jeremiah, who was apparently put to death, would today be attacked as a “crackpot”, “paranoiac”, “antisemite” and the like; the phrase then used was “prophet and dreamer of dreams”.
He describes the methods of defamation, used against such men, in words exactly applicable to our time and to many men whose public lives and reputations have been destroyed by them (as this narrative will show when it reaches the present century):
For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every side. Report, they say, and we will report it. All my familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him, and we shall take our revenge on him”.

Eva Braun’s Silk Knickers Expected to Fetch £800 in Auction

Silk knickers worn by Adolf Hitler's wife Eva Braun are expected to fetch £800 at auction.
The white undies have Braun's monogrammed initials embroidered on the front and come from an esteemed collector of World War Two memorabilia.
A label states they were knitted in Bavaria in 1944 and they also feature six decorative lace panels.
The underwear is now going under the hammer with Humbert & Ellis Auctioneers of Towcester, Northants, with a pre-sale estimate of £800.
Braun's white lace nightie which carries her personal monogram and shows significant signs of ageing is also up for grabs.
Jonathan Humbert, owner of the auction house, said: "These are possibly the most unusual items I have ever offered for sale in one of our international militaria auctions.
"They are intensely private and personal ordinary items ties and yet will undoubtedly be of global interest. Whilst there is no substantial provenance with these items - and we wouldn't expect there to be - the foxing and discolouration is commensurate with age and they both bear Eva Braun's personal monogram. They also hail from one of Europe's most significant private collections of World War Two memorabilia having been in private ownership for over half a century."
Eva Braun met Hitler in 1929 when she was 17 and he was 40. By 1936 she was part of his household, but did not attend official events with him.
In early April 1945 when the war was lost she travelled to be with Hitler and they married shortly before they both committed suicide.

D.C. Man Who Identified as a “Neo-Nazi” Will Be Released from Custody

Bloomingdale resident Jeffrey Raphael Clark, who has previously described himself as a National Socialist, will be released from custody after pleading guilty to a federal gun charge and receiving a sentence of time served in court.
His lawyer contended in court documents that his “detention at the D.C. Jail for the last 10 months has caused Mr. Clark to re-evaluate many of the choices he has made in his young life - especially those choices that brought him to the attention of law enforcement.”
Clark was 30 at the time of his arrest in November 2018. The Federal Bureau of Investigations received reports about him from family members, who said “he fantasized about murdering Jews and blacks,” according to court documents. He also characterized the fatal Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooting on October 27, 2018 as “a dry run for things to come,” and, alongside his younger brother, who committed suicide shortly after the mass shooting in Pittsburgh, “believed that there would be a race revolution, and they wanted to expedite it,” per the affidavit.
Upon Clark’s arrest, law enforcement discovered swastika flags and memorabilia, nooses, AR-15 rifle conversion kits and high-capacity AR-15 magazines, and tactical gear at the house in Bloomingdale where Clark resided alongside family members.
However, July’s plea deal states that there’s no evidence that Clark had any advanced knowledge of the Tree of Life attack, or that he was planning a separate attack in D.C. Along with his brother, Clark was known to local antifascist organizers, one of whom said Clark sent her a death threat in 2017.
As first reported by HuffPost, U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Kelly sentenced Clark to time served, meaning he will be released after his 10 months in custody. Kelly declined to release Clark prior to his sentencing hearing, citing the prosecutors’ evidence of his white nationalist-related activities and saying, “there’s too much in here about his sympathy for folks who’ve undertaken violence.”

Nigerian Rapper in Sweden Calls for Blacks to Murder and Enslave White People

    22-year-old Jesse Ekene Nweke Conable (aka JCBUZ) was born in Nigeria and has lived in Sweden since 2008, where he has citizenship. He is a rapper who “enriches” his host country with words. Conable has around 280,000 subscribers on his two YouTube accounts, so he has a fairly sizable reach.
    According to a report by Samhällsnytt, the rapper has a closed Instagram account called Barasvarta (“Blacks only”), where Conable pushes anti-White slogans like “Black Power in Sweden” and “Fuck White People.” He even calls for Whites to be murdered and enslaved.
    If any white guy or white girl is trying to talk shit about you, shoot them! If they talk shit about your family, shoot them!” (points finger gun)
    Lovely! Diversity is our greatest strength, don’t ya know?
    Conable wants his “black brothers and sisters” to “continue the war” against Whites. He says that “we, blacks” will “become number one and take over these whites.” He justifies enslaving White people because some White people enslaved some Blacks in the past.
    Like these whites took us as slaves we should take them as slaves and treat them even worse.
    Conable is actually not racist, according to himself and the “progressive” thinking of the day. He shared a meme claiming “You cannot be racist if you are not white.”
    We’ll take their bitches and we’ll take their money. To be perfectly honest, we will be the best race ever… We are African warriors, they are not on our level. This is just the beginning, black power”.
    That statement clearly was not from a racial supremacist, even though he wants Black people to massacre and rule over everyone else as “the best race ever.”
    It’s just like how in the US, the mestizo supremacist organization La Raza (a name meaning “the race,” which has been changed) is certainly not racist (since it’s not full of White people) and has been funded by some of the biggest corporations and even the government itself, even though their stated goal is to “reconquer” vast tracts of the continental US to create their Aztlan.
    This is just another example of anti-White rappers who live and work in countries that are not theirs, and are given full immunity to call for the rape, torture, and murder of the indigenous Europeans whose ancestors have lived their for thousands of years.
    Perhaps Europe has just not yet learned how to be multicultural. Let’s just remember to thank jews for their “leading role” in forcing us all into “multicultural mode” where “artists” are able to advocate for genocide with impunity.

    Lawrence O’Donnell breaks down the one document that ‘could destroy the Trump re-election campaign’

    MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday broke down a scenario that should haunt President Donald Trump.

    O’Donnell began Wednesday’s “The Last Word” with, “Donald Trump once again making a Trump problem much worse.”

    “Today, Donald Trump’s John Bolton problem got much worse. No one makes Donald Trump’s problems get worse better than Donald Trump and so today when he was asked about John Bolton, Donald Trump could not resist taking shots at John Bolton, attacking John Bolton, calling John Bolton not smart,” O’Donnell explained.

    “John Bolton resisted responding to Donald Trump’s provocation,” he continued. “Well, John Bolton didn’t completely resist. He said some very important words. John Bolton said, ‘I will have my say in due course.’ That was first reported as a text John Bolton sent to The Washington Post and soon NBC News confirmed those exact words from John Bolton today, ‘I will have my say in due course.'”

    “It would have been much better for Donald Trump if John Bolton decided to have his say today and get it over with, but on this, at least, John Bolton is much, much smarter than Donald Trump,” O’Donnell said.

    “John Bolton is going to have his say. He is going to respond to the insults that Donald Trump threw at him today,” he continued. “But John Bolton is going to control the timing and the form of his response to Donald Trump.”

    “John Bolton has already written one book of memoirs of serving in a Republican presidential administration. Tonight, John Bolton has the makings of a book that could outsell any book ever written by a member of a presidential administration. And a book that could destroy the Trump re-election campaign,” O’Donnell said.

    “Might ‘due course’ be, oh, a year from now in September or October of 2020? At the height of the presidential campaign? Might that be the moment for John Bolton to release his second memoir of service to a president? Might that be when and how John Bolton has his say?” O’Donnell wondered. “And what would that book do to the Trump reelection campaign? Donald Trump should be very worried about John Bolton’s next book.”

    “There is a small group of New York literary agents to handle books like this and they would all advise John Bolton to have his say in a book and to maximize the value in the marketplace, John Bolton should say nothing between now and when the book comes out. That means that every day of John Bolton’s silence becomes more ominous for the Trump campaign,” he explained.

    The stakes aren’t just enormous for Trump, but also for Bolton.

    “John Bolton is in a position to become the best-selling author ever of an inside the Trump White House book, and he has enough time to write one and get it published at the height of the presidential campaign, and that book could be worth several million dollars. A life-changing amount of money for John Bolton.”

    Republican strategist Rick Wilson agreed with O’Donnell’s analysis.

    “I think he’s got the chance to stick the knife in right into Trump’s soft under-chin at the right moment — if he chooses to do so,” Wilson said, ominously.

    Israel planted spy devices near White House, report claims

    (JTA) — Cellphone surveillance devices that were found near the White House and other sensitive locations around Washington, D.C., likely were planted by Israel, Politico reported.
    The article published online Thursday cited three unnamed former senior officials that Politico said have “knowledge of the matter.”
    Unlike other times when flagrant incidents of foreign spying have been discovered on American soil, the Trump administration did not rebuke the Israeli government, and there were no consequences for Israel’s behavior, one of the former officials told Politico.
    The devices, which fool cellphones into providing locations and identity information, as well as the content of calls, likely were intended to spy on President Donald Trump and his top aides, one of the officials said.
    Trump has often used an insufficiently secured cellphone to communicate with friends and confidants, Politico reported.
    “It was pretty clear that the Israelis were responsible,” a former senior intelligence official told Politico. The sources said the FBI based its accusation of Israel on a detailed forensic analysis, involving other security agencies.
    Israeli Embassy spokesman Elad Strohmayer denied that Israel placed the devices.
    “These allegations are absolute nonsense,” he said. “Israel doesn’t conduct espionage operations in the United States, period.”
    Efforts of foreign entities to spy on administration officials and other top political figures are fairly common.
    “The Israelis are pretty aggressive” in intelligence gathering, a former senior intelligence official told Politico.
    One former official told the news magazine that there were “suspicions” that Israel was listening, saying that Israeli officials had a level of detailed knowledge “that was hard to explain otherwise.”
    One of the U.S. officials acknowledged that the U.S. spies on Israel, too.
