A new law (P.L. 112-93) will extend an existing border security program. Under the program, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security identify equipment and technology that could also be used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to combat illicit trafficking across the U.S. borders with Mexico and with Canada. The bill specifically notes that information should be shared on how to detect and track ultralight aircraft.

Obama signs law countering Iranian sway in Latin America

Egyptian Magazine Claims Muslim Brotherhood Has Infiltrated The Obama Administration

http://tinyurl.com/az4shpd

US President Barack Obama enacted a law on Friday targeting Iran's alleged influence in Latin America. This comes as Washington already wages a “covert war” against Iran, according to researcher Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich.

The act also calls on the Department of Homeland Security to bolster surveillance at US borders with Canada and Mexico to “prevent operatives from Iran, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, its Quds Force, Hezbollah or any other terrorist organization from entering the United States.”

The Islamic Republic has been expanding its cooperation with Latin America in recent years and has described it as the one of its major foreign policy strategies.

The anti-Iran law comes amid growing tensions surrounding Iran and its nuclear program. The US and its allies suspect Iran of developing nuclear weapon, while it insists on the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.

On Saturday Tehran started a six-day naval drill aimed to show "the armed forces' military capabilities" in confronting enemy threats. The drill, dubbed Velayat 91, is being conducted in the key Strait of Hormuz.

Iran reassured its neighbors of its peaceful intentions but warned any enemies that it takes defending its vital interests very seriously.

"If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying -- that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun control in the 1870-1910 period, the northeastern attempts in the 1920-1939 period, the attempts at both Federal and State levels in 1965-1976 -- establishes the repeated, complete and inevitable failure of gun laws to control serious crime." - Senator Orrin Hatch

"The problem is not the availability of guns, it is the availability of morons."

"The ruling class doesn't care about public safety. Having made it very difficult for States and localities to police themselves, having left ordinary citizens with no choice but to protect themselves as best they can, they now try to take our guns away. In fact they blame us and our guns for crime. This is so wrong that it cannot be an honest mistake." - Sen. Malcolm Wallop

"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
