Senator Marco Rubio’s first filed amendment seeks to enhance our national security. Naturally this entails trying to nullify a recent Obama Executive Order. Last month President Obama, finally despairing that the U.S. legislature could scrounge enough votes to rescue Castro’s regime, signed an executive order further opening U.S. travel to Cuba, and thus further enriching Castro’s spy, military and security forces, who own Cuba’s “travel industry.” The executive order will open more U.S. airports to direct flights to and from a nation our own State Department classifies as a state sponsor of terrorism.
“My dream is to drop three atomic bombs on New York City (Raul Castro, Nov. 1960.)
“We should deliver a nuclear first strike against the U.S.,” read the telegram from Fidel Castro to Khrushchev on Oct. 28 1962.
“What!” Khrushchev gasped, as recalled by his son Sergie. “Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba? But that is insane! Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before it's too late!” instructed the Soviet premier.
“Increasing direct commercial or charter aircraft flights with state sponsors of terrorism is totally irresponsible and would amount to unilateral gifts to tyrants and regimes that actively undermine America’s security,” continues Senator Rubio. “There is no reason for the United States to help enrich state sponsors of terrorism.”
"Cuba is Intelligence Trafficker to the World," reveals Lieut. Col Christopher Simmons, until recent retirement, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher. Among other missions, Cuban spies in the U.S., often working undercover as “diplomats” or “scholars”, stole U.S. military secrets and delivered them to Iraq, Panama and Grenada, alerting these regimes to U.S. plans.
“I hope my colleagues will join me in supporting this effort to ensure that U.S. policy does not expose our nation to new security risks and increased security costs,” continued Senator Marco Rubio while filing his first amendment.
