Little Marco wants to improve Terror Intelligence

Picture of Senator Marco Rubio R-FL

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) wants to improve terror intelligence for the nation’s law enforcement community & specifically for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Senator Rubio submitted S.151 a Bill requiring federal departments and/or agencies to disclose all and any information about a person or people who have been under some type of investigation for terrorism or terrorism related incidents within the past ten years. This broad definition could be stretched to include all citizens, allies, enemies & any other governmentally targeted groups.

By legislating and creating the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001” America greatly expanded government power while curtailing that of citizens and wood be terrorists.¬† This act otherwise known as the Patriot Act along with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) gave the government unprecedented power to spy on citizens, terrorists and grandma without any proof of wrong doing.

The Federal agency responsible for data mining innocent American’s data for possible transgressions is the National Security Agency (NSA), which presumes guilt before innocence as it unconstitutionally data mines citizen’s private records without cause & with little judiciary oversight. ¬†With this additional granted power stemming from 9/11, little Marco accessed the situation (lucky for us) determining law enforcement agencies need more power (maybe we’re not so lucky).

During his Bill presentation to congress little Marco made a compassionate speech, hoping to rally his supporters and congress. As he spoke he asked who will stand with me on this bill, when his speech was concluded all of congress had left, the only company in the hall with Marco was crickets. Since its introduction the bill has not moved forward, there are no cosponsors and now little Marco is afraid to look up at fellow Senators as the giggles have given him a complex.
