Senator Marco Rubio recently spoke with NewsNation about UFO whistleblower David Grusch’s claims that the United States has a secret program that is capturing and reverse engineering UAPs with non-human intelligence (NHI) origins. Rubio revealed that the information he has heard so far has left him concerned about a secret “internal military complex” that has no accountability, echoing concerns expressed by both JFK and Eisenhower in the 1960s.

Rubio Worries a ‘Separate’ Government May Be Operating With Zero Accountability, & That Would Be a ‘Huge Problem’
NewsNation has released a full video of Rubio’s interview with reporter Joe Khalil, and Post Apocalyptic Media will be reporting on the most interesting aspects of this interview all this week. One point that Rubio brought up is that he’s concerned this could all indicate there’s a separate government entity operating with zero accountability. If true, that could be a huge problem.
First, Rubio emphasized that he doesn’t know for certain if the claims are true and, under the law, they have to rely on firsthand accounts. Grusch’s accounts are secondhand, and he filed his whistleblower complaint after hearing firsthand accounts that left him concerned that a separate program is operating outside of Congress’ oversight.
“I am not in a position to tell you right now whether it’s true or not true,” Rubio said. “But I am in a position to tell you is that people — and I think this is true not just in this case, but going back to some of the things we’ve heard from Navy pilots — people who we entrusted to do some really important things for our country are saying some pretty incredible things that I think we have an obligation to take seriously and listen to.”
He added: “What is undisputed is that there are things flying over restricted airspace — sensitive, restricted airspace in the United States — and they claim it’s not ours. That alone is reason to be looking at this stuff.”
But then he expressed his concerns about the implications if Grusch’s claims do turn out to be accurate.
“If that is accurate — and again, I’m not in a position yet to make that judgment — but if that is accurate, what you’re basically saying is that within the government of the United States, there’s a group of people who believe that they possess something that they don’t need to share with anybody, including elected officials who they view as temporary employees of the government,” Rubio said. “And, you know, in essence, some sort of an internal military complex that’s their own government and is accountable to no one. So it would be a huge problem if it’s even partially true.”
Rubio later continued, noting: “…We need to find answers because at the end of the day, anytime agencies of the federal government are unsupervised and do whatever they want, it’s generally not a good outcome for the country.”
JFK Worried About Secret Government Overreach
Rubio’s concerns are not the first time that U.S. political officials have worried about secret government overreach. For some, his concerns may cause them to remember concerns that President John F. Kennedy had about secrecy and government overreach too.
After the failed Bay of Pigs incident, JFK is quoted as saying that he wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds,” The Intercept reported. The quote was published in The New York Times in 1966.
He also refused to sign Operation Northwoods, which was a plan to commit false flags in order to instigate war with Cuba, ABC News reported. The plan included acts of terrorism against American military and civilian governments, and then blaming them on Cuba. One idea was to use a remote control civilian aircraft, repaint it as an Air Force plane, and fabricate shooting it down. Another plan included orchestrating acts of terrorism in U.S. cities, including in Florida cities and Washington, D.C. The Joint Chiefs of Staff drafted the plan, but President Kennedy rejected it, causing a rift with some in the military. The plan was declassified along with a number of other documents via the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992. These documents were actually supposed to be destroyed years ago, along with a number of other Bay of Pigs documents, but somehow they were not, ABC News reported.
In 1961, JFK also gave an address to the press that some believe was surreptitiously about secret U.S. government overreach. However, in context, the statements appeared to be more about communism.
He said: “For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence—on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly-knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
President Dwight Eisenhower also warned about the military industrial complex during his farewell address in January 1961.
We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security alone more than the net income of all United States corporations.
Now this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence—economic, political, even spiritual—is felt in every city, every Statehouse, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet, we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources, and livelihood are all involved. So is the very structure of our society.
In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.
The warnings about the military industrial complex, along with the issues that JFK encountered in the 1960s, are interesting to read in light of Senator Rubio’s concern that the U.S. may have an “internal military complex” connected with UAP retrieval that is “accountable to no one.”
