Today I am once again going over the Patriot Act and the specific changes made to it. There are things that I feel the public should be made aware of as I know most of them have not been the subject of discussion in the press with this extension.
The Act states in Section 5 titled LIMITATIONS ON DISCLOSURE OF NATIONAL SECURITY LETTERS. ‘‘(d) PROHIBITION OF CERTAIN DISCLOSURE.—
‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—If a certification is issued under sub paragraph (B) and notice of 11 the right to judicial review under paragraph (3) is provided, no consumer reporting agency, or officer, employee, or agent thereof, that receives a request or order under subsection (a), (b), or (c), shall disclose or specify in any consumer report, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation
has sought or obtained access to information or records under subsection (a), (b), or (c). Ok so this tells the credit reporting agencies that they can not tell anyone that the FBI asked for or obtained access to your credit information, but it does not prohibit them from reducing your credit score based on the fact that the FBI requested that information not by purchasing a credit report but by using a secret document i.e. a National Security Letter. Can you really believe that such a request will not make a credit reporting agency ask serious questions about your risk to their clients? Now what if there is nothing there does the FBI come back and give you a clean bill of health I don’t think so.
This is just another problem with this out right violation of the Constitution. Now I can only blame those who I vote for and those are Rep. Charlie “The Cockroach” Dent (R-PA), Sen. Pat “I kiss Norquest Ass” Toomey (R-Pa) and Sen. Robert “I’m a Coward” Casey (D-Pa). These are not the only Representative and Senators that have sold your rights out but they are the three that I must deal with.
You need to ask your self is My Representative and Senators effecting My credit score? Is My Representative and Senators so afraid of My rights as a citizen that they feel they need to spy on Me? Who exactly are My “Elected Representives” actually representing.
