PUEBLO, Colo. – A female high school student awaits a disciplinary hearing and could face expulsion for wearing a Halloween costume to school that prompted officials to lock down the building Wednesday. An unnamed female student was spotted in the hallway at Pueblo County High School early yesterday morning wearing a gas mask and trench coat, and a classmate reported her to school officials, The Pueblo Chieftain reports. The teen was hauled to the office where she was interrogated by the police, who also placed the school on lockdown for about an hour.

Obama weighs expanding background
checks through executive authority

In response to the latest mass shooting during his presidency, President Obama is seriously considering circumventing Congress with his executive authority and imposing new background-check requirements for buyers who purchase weapons from high-volume gun dealers. Under the proposed rule change, dealers who exceed a certain number of sales each year would be required to obtain a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and perform background checks on potential buyers. As the president heads to Roseburg, Ore., on Friday to comfort the survivors and families of those killed in last week’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College,

The mayor of a small town in Germany has drawn up a bizarre set of rules for refugees housed in his community which include leaving toilets clean and not pinching fruit from orchards. Mayor Volker Rohm, 55, also encourages the new settlers in Hardheim in the southern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg to not open supermarket goods before paying for them, not to relieve themselves in public or to make a noise after 10.00pm at night. Hardheim is now home to 1,000 refugees being housed in a former American military barracks. (Photos) Officials in Berlin have questioned the necessity of instructing the

More than three years after the Benghazi tragedy, the State Department is rejecting one of the recommendations from its internal watchdog to improve security at its high-risk diplomatic posts, and hasn’t yet completed other high-priority reforms recommended by independent experts, according to an internal progress memo. In all, three of the 29 security recommendations made after Benghazi by an Accountability Review Board have not yet been completed, State Department officials told The Washington Times. A separate recommendation made by the department’s inspector general has been rejected in a dispute that continues to linger just weeks before former Secretary of State

The White House poked fun at House Republicans and mocked former Vice President Dick Cheney on Thursday, admitting that “we’re having a little fun with all of this” as GOP leaders scramble to find the next speaker of the House. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, California Republican, unexpectedly dropped out of the speaker race Thursday, forcing the caucus to postpone its vote until the successor to Speaker John A. Boehner can be found. Administration officials, while stressing that it’s important for Republicans to choose their next leader as soon as possible, admitted they’re enjoying the GOP’s state of confusion and

Could Newt Gingrich end up right back to the place that made him a political celebrity? During an interview with radio host Sean Hannity Thursday, the former speaker told the host that while he isn´t pining to retake the position he vacated in 1999, he would not be opposed to serving as interim speaker if he had the 218 votes necessary. The comments came only hours after House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy dropped his bid to replace Speaker John Boehner, who is set to leave the post on Oct. 30. Gingrich also made the remarks after Hannity pressed him on

In a much anticipated announcement, Nasa has discovered that Pluto has red water ice and blue skies. The Earth-like skies were seen in the first colour images of Pluto´s atmospheric hazes, which show them shining against the darkness of space. The discovery of red water ice has also excited astronomers, as it adds to the theory that Pluto has a liquid sea under its surface that could host life. But why the ice is red has baffled Nasa, who says its scientists are still working on finding a cause for its crimson colour. The news follows days of rumours suggesting Nasa

More than three teenage potential extremists a day are being referred to the Government´s deradicalisation scheme, new figures have shown. Across England and Wales, almost 800 people were referred to the Channel programme - aimed at providing early intervention for vulnerable people who could be drawn to terrorism - between June and August 2015. Of them, 312 individuals were under the age of 18. The increasing “lure of extremism” was to blame for the large rate of referrals, according to one think tank leader.

Rupert Murdoch has apologised for insinuating President Obama is not a “real black president” in a tweet endorsing Dr Ben Carson, Republican presidential candidate. The News Corporation boss regularly uses Twitter to share his provocative opinions on social, political or environmental issues. On Wednesday, the 84-year-old infuriated Twitter users by writing: “Ben and Candy Carson terrific. What about a real black President who can properly address the racial divide?” He pointed to an article in the New York Magazine questioning whether Mr Obama has done enough for black and ethnic minorities during his two terms in office.

Las Vegas — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Thursday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan. "We´re tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who´s a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed," Trump said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island. "Thirty years ago," Trump added, "he would have been shot." It was practically an aside in a litany of complaints at the end of a more than hourlong, free-wheeling speech that included a large dose of media bashing and a

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.— A city in South Carolina approved a $6.5 million settlement Thursday with the family of an unarmed black man shot to death earlier this year by a white police officer. The North Charleston City Council approved the settlement by a 10-0 vote, and members of Walter Scott´s family were on hand when it was announced. The council had met several times in the past few months to receive advice from city attorney Brady Hair on a potential lawsuit from Scott´s family. Scott, 50, was shot April 4 by North Charleston officer Michael Slager while trying to run from

There’s the cycle of poverty. There’s the cycle of violence. And then there’s the cycle of gun talk. It starts with a mass shooting. Gun-control advocates blame the deaths on gun-control opponents, who argue, in turn, that none of the proposed restrictions would have had any effect on the incident in question. The debate goes nowhere. The media move on. Until the next incident, when the cycle begins again. So with the Roseburg massacre in Oregon. Within hours, President Obama takes to the microphones to furiously denounce the National Rifle Association and its ilk for resisting “common-sense gun-safety laws.”

Everything from rising sea levels in Vanuatu to worsening air quality in India to the endangerment of polar bears, sea turtles, and giant pandas around the world has been attributed to climate change. But this Thanksgiving, climate change may hit a little closer to home. Libby´s Pumpkin, which supplies more than 85 percent of the world´s canned pumpkin, says an unusually rainy spring and summer will slash annual pumpkin yields by half this year. Morton, Illinois, which grows most of the pumpkins prepared and canned by Libby´s, has been experiencing increased rainfall for decades – 10 percent more, in fact.

Some senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal have privately concluded that a key sanctions relief provision – a concession to Iran that will open the doors to tens of billions of dollars in U.S.-backed commerce with the Islamic regime – conflicts with existing federal statutes and cannot be implemented without violating those laws, Fox News has learned. At issue is a passage tucked away in ancillary paperwork attached to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, as the Iran nuclear deal is formally known. Specifically, Section 5.1.2 of Annex II provides that in exchange

Floridians who´ve been watching where they walk for more than a month can breathe a little easier: An 8-foot king cobra has been found just about 1,500 feet from where it escaped its Orlando home in late August. King cobras are carnivorous animals that can grow up to 18 feet long. The venom in one cobra bite is enough to kill 20 people or an elephant, but they rarely attack humans. With proper licensing, they can be legally kept as pets in Florida. The cobra, which belongs to reality TV personality Mike Kennedy, was reported missing on September 2, launching

Bowing to populist winds, Hillary Clinton came out against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, following her rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline. There´s just one thing we´d like to know: With stances like that, where does she expect economic growth to come from? It wasn´t just the phoniness of her stance on trade that drew attention from the media, although that was rational enough. Hillary spent years as secretary of state pushing for TPP, calling it "the gold standard"of free trade pacts, which makes her sudden rejection of it on Wednesday a de facto repudiation of her own work.

A number of Russian cruise missiles launched at Syria crashed in Iran instead, U.S. officials told CNN Thursday. U.S. intelligence has concluded that at least four missiles crashed en route to targets in Syria. One official said there might be casualties. Russia launched cruise missiles from its warships in the Caspian Sea into the country for the first time on Wednesday, an escalation of its military campaign to shore up its ally, Syrian President Bashar Assad. The cruise missiles have to fly through Iranian and Iraqi airspace before landing in Syria. It´s unclear where in Iran the missiles landed. Defense

FBI agents on Wednesday dug up the Fontana backyard of an armored-truck driver convicted of pulling off a $1-million theft, and recovered about $600,000. Agents recovered the pile of carefully wrapped $20 and $100 bills in a large bin after excavating the yard of the suburban home in the 9300 block of Marcona Avenue, said Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman. The home was owned by Cesar Yanez, one of the two armored-truck drivers who carried out a scheme last year to slip more than $1 million out of the stacks of cash they ferried from a Bank of America distribution

Of all Barack Obama’s qualities, among the most striking is his combination of self-righteousness and lack of self-awareness. Consider his news conference Friday. Mr. Obama attempted again to shift responsibility for the weakest recovery in recorded U.S. economic history onto Republicans. “We would be doing even better,” the president said, “if we didn’t have to keep on dealing with unnecessary crises in Congress every few months.” Yet Mr. Obama now threatens to veto the annual defense-authorization bill unless Congress increases nondefense spending and allows the transfer of terrorists from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which the president has pledged
