This Morning from CBS News, June 4, 2015

Homegrown terror

CBS News has learned Usaama Abdullah Rahim had planned to carry out an ISIS-style beheading, possibly of controversial conservative activist and outspoken Islam critic Pamela Geller, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues. The plan was hatched before Rahim's failed attempt to attack law enforcement on the streets of Boston.

No secrets

Former FIFA Vice President Jack Warner made a televised address in Trinidad last night saying he will prove a link between soccer's governing body and his nation's elections in 2010. CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata reports Warner said, "I will no longer keep secrets for them who actively seek to destroy the country."

Tenth Republican

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry kicks off his second bid for the White House with a rally in Dallas today. When he formally enters the race, he'll join a crowded field -- nine Republicans have declared 2016 candidacies, and at least seven more are eyeing the race. But campaign pros say Perry will bring too many assets to the race to ignore. Here are five things you need to know about Rick Perry.

F-35 flight simulator

The Air Force is using the F-35 Lightning II jet in exercises. The project faced a host of problems. But after two decades, the aircraft is finally being delivered for service, and pilots are stepping up training with simulators. Air Force Maj. Joshua Arki gave "CBS This Morning" co-host Charlie Rose a first-hand look at the capabilities of the U.S. military's most advanced and most expensive plane.

Naughty neighbors

A 4,000 square foot house in a quiet gated Texas community is causing quite a stir, and now it's at the center of a lawsuit. Neighbors say the single family home doubles as a swingers club on weekends. CBS News correspondent Vinita Nair is here with the details.

Power suckers

Online security company AVG Technologies released its quarterly report this week on the apps that are sucking the most of the battery life out of your phone -- and taking the most time out of your life. The finger points at gambling, dating and the weather.

Community colleges

Americans have heard a lot of political talk in recent months about making community college free for students. But what has attracted far less attention is how underfunded many community colleges are as they strain to educate their current students, much less a crush of newcomers.

Triple Crown?

Fans are saddling up for Saturday's 147th running of the Belmont Stakes, just outside New York City. All eyes will be on "American Pharaoh." The 3-year-old will try to become the first horse to win the Triple Crown in more than three decades. His trainer knows what it's like to be on the cusp of winning the rare honor, more than anyone else. He showed CBS News correspondent Carter Evans how he could be in the home stretch of history.
