    Statement by the President on the Shooting of Police Officers in Des Moines, Iowa

    Yesterday, two police officers put on their uniforms to serve and protect the communities they loved. And early this morning, they were taken from us in shameful acts of violence.

    Sergeant Anthony Beminio and Officer Justin Martin represented our best, most decent instincts as human beings – to serve our neighbors, to put ourselves in harm’s way for someone else. They knew the dangers of their job. They knew the risks. Yet they chose to dedicate themselves to those values anyway. So today, Michelle and I join Americans across our country in expressing our condolences and stand in solidarity with their grieving families, fellow officers, and the communities they served so honorably.

    All across the country, our police officers go to work each day not knowing whether they’ll come home at night. Their families live each day with the same fears. So as Americans, we owe them our respect and gratitude for their efforts to safeguard our families and our communities. And so as we once again mourn American police officers lost in the line of duty, we must also renew the call to match that same sense of service, that same devotion within our own lives and our own communities.

      Statement by the Vice President and Dr. Jill Biden on the Shooting of Police Officers in Des Moines, Iowa

      Tonight, the sun set in Des Moines and Urbandale with two heroes no longer here. Des Moines Sergeant Anthony Beminio and Urbandale Officer Justin Martin started the day as they always did, pinning the shield on their uniforms as they kissed their loved ones goodbye to patrol the streets while the city slept. They knew the risks, but they walked out the door because that’s who they were. Like law enforcement officers across the country, they were defined by duty, courage, and honor. They loved their cities. They would do anything for the people who counted on them. But as we’ve seen too often, a coward with a gun in his hand and malice in his heart assassinated these two heroes in cold blood. And as we’ve had to do too often, Jill and I join the nation in mourning with their broken-hearted families and their grieving brothers and sisters in blue.

    Remarks by the President at Hillary for America Rally — Raleigh, NC

    University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
    Raleigh, North Carolina

    3:44 P.M. EDT

    THE PRESIDENT: Hello, North Carolina! (Applause.) Hello, Tar Heels! (Applause.) Are you fired up? (Applause.) Are you ready to go? (Applause.) It is good to be back in Chapel Hill. I love me some North Carolina. (Applause.) I do. I said this before. I love North Carolina. I love the state. I love the people. I love the basketball. (Applause.) I mean, I — you know, I always say that North Carolina, that’s one place where even the people who don’t vote for me are nice. (Laughter.) It’s true. Just good people. Just good people.

    And we got a beautiful summer day in November. I know you guys are a little hot, so make sure everybody kind of bends their knees. Don’t stand up too stiff. If anybody faints, just give them a little room. They’ll be okay. Hydrate. I don’t mean to sound like your mom or your dad.

    So can everybody please give Isabel a big round of applause for the wonderful introduction. (Applause.) We have a couple of outstanding members of Congress here. G.K. Butterfield is here. (Applause.) And David Price is here. (Applause.) One of the finest public servants in North Carolina history, your former Governor, Jim Hunt, is in the house. (Applause.) Your current Attorney General and your next Governor, Roy Cooper, is here. (Applause.) And your next United States Senator, Deborah Ross, is here. (Applause.) And you’re here too. (Laughter.) Somebody hollered, what about me? I was like, you guys are here too. And I’m going to talk about you and how much this country is going to depend on you over these next few days.

    I want to thank all the organizers who are here. I know you’ve helped rally tens of thousands of volunteers and registered more than 100,000 voters right here in North Carolina. (Applause.) And it is that grassroots work that led us to win North Carolina in 2008. And you are why we will win North Carolina in 2016. (Applause.)

    And we got six days — six days.

    AUDIENCE MEMBER: Love you, Obama!

    THE PRESIDENT: I love you, too. But I got some business I got to do here. (Laughter.) I’ll give you a hug on the way out. (Applause.) But right now, we got to focus on some business. Not business — but business. We got six days — six days to decide the future of this country that we love. And the good news is, you don’t have to wait until Election Day to do the right thing. You can vote right now. If you’re not registered, you have until Saturday to register and vote at any One-Stop location in your county. If you don’t know where to go, then go to IWillVote.com — IWillVote.com. You can find the One-Stop location near you, and we can finish what we started eight years ago.

  5. Obama Says Alternate Routes Are Being Reviewed for Dakota Pipeline

    Nov 2, 2016 CHRISTINE HAUSER – nytimes.com

    President Obama, in his first remarks on the violent standoff over an oil pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, called on both sides to show restraint and revealed that the Army Corps of Engineers was considering an alternative route for the project.

    In an interview with NowThis news that was published on Tuesday, Mr. Obama said: “We are monitoring this closely. I think as a general rule, my view is that there is a way for us to accommodate sacred lands of Native Americans.

    “I think that right now the Army Corps is examining whether there are ways to reroute this pipeline.”

  7. Jobless Claims

    Released On 11/3/2016 8:30:00 AM For wk10/29, 2016

    Prior Consensus Consensus Range Actual
    New Claims – Level 258 K 255 K 254 K to 265 K 265 K
    4-week Moving Average – Level 253.00 K 257.75 K
    New Claims – Change -3 K 7 K

    Highlights
    Jobless claims are holding at or near record lows, with initial claims up only 7,000 in the October 29 week and continuing claims down 14,000 in the October 22 week. The 4-week average for initial claims, now at 257,750, has trended for the last two months in the 255,000 area. Continuing claims have likewise been trending lower, at a new record low of 2.026 million. There are no special factors in today’s report where trends are pointing to strength in the labor market and suggest that employers are holding tightly onto their employees.

  8. Factory Orders

    Released On 11/3/2016 10:00:00 AM For Sep, 2016

    Prior Prior Revised Consensus Consensus Range Actual
    Factory Orders – M/M change 0.2 % 0.4 % 0.2 % 0.0 % to 0.5 % 0.3 %

    Highlights
    Good news is hard to find in the September factory orders report which is best described as flat. New orders did rise, up a moderate 0.3 percent in the month, and the prior month’s gain is revised 2 tenths higher to 0.4 percent, but core capital goods orders (nondefense ex-aircraft) are down a sharp 1.3 percent and total unfilled orders keep contracting, down 0.4 percent for a fourth straight decline. Maybe the best news is that manufacturers are keeping their inventories down, unchanged in the month and down relative to shipments, to 1.34 from 1.35. Monday’s advance indications on October from the ISM don’t point to much change for a factory sector that continues to be held down by generally weak global demand and by weak investment in new equipment.
