As a child growing up in North Carolina, Donald Morgan dreamed of joining the military and hoped one day to become a special forces soldier. But earlier this year the 44-year-old was arrested at J.F.K airport on his way home from Lebanon after trying and failing to join ISIS terrorists fighting in Syria. According to U.S. officials, Morgan spent eight months in the Middle East where he tried to sell military-grade guns and ammunition online. He also posted messages on Twitter under the name Abu Omar Al-Amreeki in which he pledged allegiance to the leader of ISIS, and told ´brothers´ in Iraq

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. — The Obama administration wants to enlist the world in efforts to stem the flow of foreign fighters to international terrorist organizations like the Islamic State (IS) – with President Obama to host a meeting of world leaders on the issue later this month. According to Samantha Power, US ambassador to the United Nations, Mr. Obama will take advantage of the large gathering of world leaders at the annual September opening of the UN General Assembly in New York to call a Security Council “summit” on the issue.Together with Secretary of State John Kerry’s travel to the Middle

The word of the day is “deliberate.” On Thursday morning, White House Deputy National Security Advisor Tony Blinken said that the Obama administration is seeking to combat the Islamic State threat, as it executes one “terrorist attack” after another against the United States, in a “deliberate” fashion. That’s a far more generous way of confessing to near paralytic dithering. Last week, President Barack Obama admitted that his administration does not “have a strategy yet” for attacking the Islamic State in its Syrian stronghold. On Wednesday, noting in the same speech that his administration would seek to “destroy” ISIS and/or “shrink” it into

In the face of a surge of Latin youths pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border this year, the public has shifted to a much harder line and want Washington’s focus to be on better border security and tougher enforcement of immigration laws, said a new Pew Research Center poll. Pew said the public has turned away from a dual approach calling for better border security and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. “The share prioritizing tougher border security and law enforcement has risen since Feb. 2013, early in [President] Obama’s second term,” said Pew. The poll of 1,501 people taken Aug. 20

New ISIS threat: America´s electric

Former top government officials who have been warning Washington about the vulnerability of the nation’s largely unprotected electric grid are raising new fears that troops from the jihadist Islamic State are poised to attack the system, leading to a power crisis that could kill millions. “Inadequate grid security, a porous U.S.-Mexico border, and fragile transmission systems make the electric grid a target for ISIS,” said Peter Pry, one of the nation’s leading experts on the grid. Others joining Pry at a press conference later Wednesday to draw attention to the potential threat said that if just a handful of the nation’s high

The unprecedented multi-year inflow of 150,000 poor Central American migrants into the United States has dropped by only one-quarter during the hottest and most dangerous month of this year. That’s contrary to the spin from the officials who have tried to claim the August drop was much larger and that the post-2009 inflow is perhaps coming to an end. “The number of apprehensions in August are down from July, and they’re actually lower than they were August of last year,” President Barack Obama claimed during an August 28 press conference. “Apprehensions in July were half of what they were in June [and] so

Exclusive to The Gateway Pundit— Missouri Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) told The Gateway Pundit on Thursday that police vehicles suffered $100,000 in damages during the Ferguson rioting. Much of the damage was from gunfire. And, here we were told these were peaceful protests? In August, Senator Blunt urged the Department of Justice to identify available resources to help the local law enforcement agencies pay for their security work in Ferguson. “Law enforcement agencies from across Missouri have contributed officers and support to help provide security for the residents and businesses in the Ferguson community,” Blunt wrote. “Many of these state

Michelle Obama’s Inedible School
Lunches Lead to Food Redistribution

Didn’t eat your school lunch? That’s okay. It wasn’t really meant for you. You were just a vehicle for redistributing it. The U.S. Agriculture Department has found an upside to all those “healthy” school lunches that students refuse to eat: It says schools can use the plate waste as a “learning opportunity” to turn young students into “civic-minded, community-conscious adults.” A blog on the USDA website explains that an elementary school in Northern Virginia is now donating untouched food to a local food pantry. That’s great. We can spend money on “lunch programs” that won’t go to the kids. The entire setup

DC Circuit Court Will Rehear
Obamacare Subsidies Case

The D.C. Circuit Court will hear the court case over the legality of Obamacare subsidies in the federal exchanges all over again, the court announced Thursday. At risk are premium tax credit subsidies for Obamacare customers using federally-run exchanges. The text of the Affordable Care Act which authorizes the subsidies states that the funding should go only to customers in exchanges “established by the State,” leading the plaintiffs in Halbig v. Burwell to argue that subsidies are illegal for federal HealthCare.gov customers — which account for the vast majority of Obamacare enrollees nationwide. While the D.C. Circuit originally voted 2-1 in favor

The Huffington Post has hired a new ‘politics fellow’ for their site, and lucky for HuffPo’s readers, his commentary will be backed up by zero experience covering politics or government. Former NFL Wide Receiver Donte’ Stallworth’s new position and focus on national security should be tempered by his previous statements on everything from American oppression of African Americans to conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Stallworth tweeted in 2009 that there was “NO WAY 9/11 was carried out by ‘dying’ Bin Laden, 19 men who couldn´t fly a damn kite.” NO WAY 9/11 was carried out by "dying"

Liberals like to think and talk about themselves as if they are the wave of the future. Note, for example, how Barack Obama and John Kerry have denounced Islamist terrorists and Vladimir Putin for behaving as if they are still in the “19th century.” On domestic policy, liberals see history as a story of progress from tiny government to ever-larger government — though never stating exactly how far that movement should go. Obama came to the nation’s attention in 2004 as a new figure, young and future-oriented. His successful 2008 campaign was seen as a drive for “hope and change.”

‘To Hell With the Constitution!’

In 1902 Theodore Roosevelt intervened in a strike by Pennsylvania coal miners, exceeding his Constitutional authority as president. When this was pointed out to him by Republican House whip James E. Watson, Roosevelt allegedly yelled, “To hell with the Constitution when the people want coal!” This outburst reflected the novel Progressive view of the Chief Executive. Instead of the Constitution’s limited powers focused on specific needs, such as national defense, beyond the capacity of the individual states or local governments to address, the President needed more expansive authority in order to serve the “people.” Over 100 years later, Barack Obama has

Pupils at a Welsh primary school were today left stunned when, of all people, Barack Obama and David Cameron walked into their classroom. Mr Obama greeted the smiling youngsters of Mount Pleasant Primary School in Welsh by saying ‘bore da’ - ‘good morning’. He then listened to a welcome message, thanking him for being the first serving US president to visit Wales. The road along Ruskin Avenue was faced by the sight of scores of police officers and the presidential convoy pulling up at the school gates.

U.S. intelligence agencies last month reported that a group of 22 Yemeni-Americans were training in Houston to be seamen on oil tankers, raising terrorism concerns over the unusual activity. The Department of Homeland Security issued an Aug. 26 report from its National Terrorism Advisory System about the case. “Reporting revealed that 22 students of Middle Eastern descent from Michigan and California were enrolled in recent maritime training courses in Houston, TX to obtain training, licensing, and/or mariner ratings during calendar year 2014,” the report said. “All students were naturalized U.S. citizens from Yemen.” The report said the U.S. government received confidential information

A potentially deadly albino cobra is slithering free in an upscale California suburb, and authorities are in a desperate search to find it before it bites someone. The hooded viper, possibly an escaped illegal pet, has already bitten a dog in the Thousand Oaks community, and the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control, which handles animal emergencies in nearby Ventura County, is warning people to keep their pets indoors and their doors closed until the snake is captured. The monocled cobra was described as "very dangerous and venomous" and, although it is not typically aggressive, it injects a

Despite filing papers with the Kansas secretary of State withdrawing from the Senate race late Wednesday, Democrat Chad Taylor may be stuck on the ballot this fall. Two election law statutes have raised questions about whether Taylor gave sufficient cause to remove himself from the ballot, and, if so, whether Democrats must ultimately choose a candidate to replace him. Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Clay Barker told The Hill that Taylor is now back on the secretary of State’s list of general election candidates, while a legal team analyzes the statutes. One statute declares that, except under specific circumstances, “no person who

Largely overlooked in the back and forth about what is being said and done (and not done) on the strategy for dealing with ISIS are the thoughts of the U.S. troops being deployed to Iraq. Rarely do we get a glimpse into their thoughts, but I received an email from a friend – a special operator who is in contact with his fellow soldiers who have been deployed to Iraq – that provides some insight. My friend said it would okay to pass along what he’s hearing anonymously: ‘I´m getting notes from the guys over in these operations centers in

In a stunning development, candidate Chad Taylor asked Wednesday that his name be removed from the ballot, paving the way for independent candidate Greg Orman to face U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts head-on in November. “After much consideration and prolonged discussion with my supporters, my staff, and party leadership at every level, I have decided to end my campaign for the United States Senate,” Taylor said in an exclusive statement to The Eagle. “I have great love for the state of Kansas and the people that live here.

A ferry bound for Britain has been stormed by up to 250 illegal immigrants who tried to force their way on board the vessel at the French port of Calais. Witnesses said security staff were forced to turn a fire hose on the crowds as they attempted to overpower officials and machine-gun wielding police by climbing over fences and running up the main ramp into the ferry´s vehicle hold. The shocking incident took place yesterday afternoon, with P&O Ferries confirming that a ´huge intrusion´ had occurred. The news comes as the mayor of Calais threatened to blockade the port unless

Left wingers are willing to sacrifice the actual interests of the poor in service to their aspirations of political power. A perennial dream of the American progressives is to organize fast food workers into a union, a move that would be an absolute disaster for the intended beneficiaries. Today, a purported 150 cities will see fast food strikes, as MSNBC approvingly reports: Thousands of fast food workers across the United States were walking off the job Thursday morning, affecting restaurants in about 150 cities nationwide.

Congress had little opportunity to debate the Internal Revenue Service’s missing-e-mail controversy while on break during the past month, but lawmakers will have plenty to talk about when they return next week. One question likely to come up is why the IRS wiped out Lois Lerner’s Blackberry shortly after congressional staffers interviewed the then-IRS official about the agency’s suspected targeting of conservative groups. So far, the IRS has offered no answers. The issue came to light last month after U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered the IRS to explain its efforts at recovering emails that were lost when

Waldo, Fla. — The north Florida town of Waldo has long had a reputation as a speed trap, and it´s no wonder. A small segment of highway that runs through Waldo requires drivers to speed up and slow down six times: 65 mph becomes 55 mph; 55 becomes 45; then goes back to 55; then back down to 45; to 55 again and eventually, 35 mph. AAA named the tiny town between Jacksonville and Gainesville one of only two "traffic traps" nationwide and even placed an attention-getting billboard outside the limits of the town to warn drivers to slow down before
