Dozens of police officers surprised a sick little boy at the hospital Wednesday in Fresno, California.
11-year-old Aidan Nelson has been at Valley Children’s Hospital for two months with a cancerous tumor on his neck that is terminal.
Local police officers decided to visit Aidan after his mother told them that the boy wanted to dress as a police officer for Halloween.
With a helicopter flying overhead and police lights flashing, the officers arrived at the hospital bearing smiles and gifts for the Aidan.
“It’s so big, I just can’t believe they all did this for my son,” his mother, Elisha Nelson, told Fox 26.
Well, there’s another reason not to vote for her…
Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells POLITICO.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
Neither Clinton nor her aides have yet told Biden. According to the source, they’re strategizing about how to make the approach to the vice president, who almost ran against her in the Democratic primaries but has since been campaigning for her at a breakneck pace all over the country in these final months.
“He’d be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins,” said the source familiar with the transition planning.
He thinks he’s telling people to vote for Hillary. But Hillary doesn’t respect immigrants because she tramples on those who try to come legally in favor of illegal aliens. She doesn’t respect women or she wouldn’t try to destroy her husband’s victims.
Via The College Fix:
A math professor recently went on a tangent in class, telling students that this is the “scariest” presidential election he’s ever witnessed and that students should vote for the candidate who does not detest women and immigrants — a clear jab at Republican candidate Donald Trump.
While careful not to use Trump’s name, nor Hillary Clinton’s, it was apparent Mount Holyoke College math Professor Peter Rosnick was critical of Trump, telling the young women at the all-female college to “vote for someone who thinks women are full and capable and responsible and intelligent beings who should not be the object of, um, should not be objectified,” according to a video of the comments obtained by The College Fix.
Here we go again.
Parents shape children, not government. It doesn’t take a village, Mrs. Clinton. It takes parents and a government who gets out of the way.

BREAKING: Mike Pence’s Plane Skids Off The Runway At LaGuardia Airport In NY…UPDATE: Picture Of Torn Up Tarmac From Rough Landing…
— CNN (@CNN) October 28, 2016
It is quite cold and rainy tonight in NYC. Fortunately everyone was ok, despite the rough landing and skidding off the runway.
CNN notes Gov. Pence immediately came back to check on everyone including reporters to make sure everyone was ok.
Here’s a picture of how the plane tore up the tarmac, it could have been quite serious, the plane ended up in the grass.
Apparently the tarmac is made to absorb some of the impact, it’s a crushable concrete that apparently helped slow down the plane and that’s why it looks like that, according to those familiar with such construction. That was helpful, because what came next after where they stopped was the road.
Classy remark from the Communist. It could have been a serious problem, they skid off runway during a rough landing. Gov. Pence’s first thought was to check on the safety of everyone else.
Van Jones’ first thought was not whether everyone was safe, but to think what political shots he could take at Trump and Pence.
Clinton Ally Neera Tanden: Person Who Approved Hillary’s Private Email Server Should Be ‘Drawn And Quartered’
Yes, Neera, we do know. There she is, above. Because she wanted to avoid FOIA and assumed she would get away with it.
Via The Blaze:
Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden, a leading supporter of Hillary Clinton and a member of her transition team, wanted the person responsible for the Democratic presidential nominee’s private email server “drawn and quartered,” according to new email revelations.
“Do we actually know who told Hillary she could use a private email?” Tanden inquired in a June 2015 email to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, per documents stolen by WikiLeaks. “And has that person been drawn and quartered? Like whole thing is f***ing insane,” she added.
And Tanden was not alone in her frustration over the issue. Other documents published by WikiLeaks show several of Clinton’s closest aides could not find any good reason for her decision to use a private server during her tenure as secretary of state.
As TheBlaze previously reported, Philippe Reines, one of the Democrat’s aides, wrote in a March 2015 email that there is “no good answer” for his boss’s controversial email practices.
“There Is Just No Good Answer,” he wrote in the message. “We need to gut through the process phase, get them all out there and let the content do the talking.”
Clinton’s decision to use a private email account has been a major source of controversy since the beginning of her presidential campaign. Following an FBI investigation into her time at the State Department, agency Director James Comey determined Clinton’s practices were “extremely careless,” but chose not to recommend charges against her.
Peacefully throwing things at police and setting fires.
Police arrested 16 people at a protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota today as officers attempted to disperse the crowd, authorities said.
Officers also used pepper spray against protesters who police said were throwing things at them and refusing to comply with law enforcement’s orders.
Three protesters had used devises to attach themselves to objects, presumably so they could not be moved from the site by officers, a press release from the Morton County public information officer said.
“The protesters are not being peaceful or prayerful,” Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney said in the press release. “Law enforcement has been very methodical in moving ahead slowly as to not escalate the situation. However, the protesters are using very dangerous means to slow us down. Their aggressive tactics include using horses, fire and trying to flank us with horses and people.”
An estimated 250 protesters against the pipeline are at one site and about 80 others at another location nearby, the press release said.
Get the popcorn.

Update at 4:10 p.m.: All defendants found not guilty.
Update: The jury reported to the court Thursday afternoon that it has reached consensus on all but one charge. The jury sent a note to the judge that members have “exhausted all discussion” and can’t come to an agreement, and that “further deliberation would not help.”
Deliberations started anew Thursday morning after the federal judge in the conspiracy trial against Ammon Bundy and six co-defendants welcomed a new juror and told the reconstructed 12-member jury to “disregard entirely” past discussions and begin fresh.
“Starting over may seem frustrating,” U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown told the jurors in court. “Do not let it discourage you.”
Brown directed the jurors not to speculate or discuss the reasons why they’d been reconfigured, with Juror 11 replaced by Juror 18. The judge dismissed Juror 11 on Wednesday, a day after a fellow juror questioned his impartiality in a note to the court, submitted on the third day of deliberations.
“That’s happened. That’s passed,” Brown said.
She urged the group to start all over, “as if the previous deliberations have never occurred.”
The latest WikiLeaks dump contains plenty of insider dirt on John Podesta, the founder of the Center for American Progress and the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton. Perhaps the tawdriest story to be exposed by Podesta’s pilfered e-mails is the bragging by an employee of ThinkProgress, an arm of the Center for American Progress, about how they got Roger Pielke Jr.’s scalp.
A July 2014 e-mail from Judd Legum, an editor at ThinkProgress, to billionaire Democratic climate activist (and former coal-mine investor) Tom Steyer exposes the climate-change McCarthyism that the Left — and its myriad allies in the liberal media — use to discredit or silence anyone who doesn’t adhere to the orthodoxy of the climate catastrophists.
In the e-mail, Legum boasted to Steyer about how ThinkProgress had silenced Pielke by preventing him from publishing at Nate Silver’s then-new website, fivethirtyeight.com, on the issue of climate change. Legum was also asking Steyer, indirectly, for more money. Steyer and Podesta both sit on the board of the Center for American Progress. Between 2008 and 2014, Steyer gave the Center for American Progress some $3.85 million. I’ll come back to the specifics of that e-mail shortly.
First, some background. Pielke, a professor at the University of Colorado since 2001, holds degrees in mathematics, public policy, and political science. He has authored or co-authored seven books. He has won several awards for his academic work. For about two decades, he was a prolific writer and speaker on climate issues. In 2013, he testified before Congress and declared that there is “exceedingly little scientific support for claims found in the media and political debate that hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and drought have increased in frequency or intensity on climate timescales either in the United States or globally.” During that same testimony, he said that global weather-related losses have not increased since 1990 as a proportion of GDP. He went on, saying that there were also no observable increases in floods, tornadoes, or droughts.

The excitement for Hillary is so great, these women just couldn’t take it another minute and had to dance because of their enthusiasm.
And if you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
She’s obviously attempting to inject some enthusiasm into her campaign but pantsuits don’t exactly appeal to millennials…

If you’re going to spend it, how about instruction in American laws and culture, including respect for women?
Via Daily Caller:
Refugees are desperately in need of American sports programs. At least, that’s what a federal officials intend to spend taxpayer money on.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (OOR) informed governors’ offices of its intent to provide sports programs, mental health counseling and job placement services for refugees during a conference call Thursday.
On the quarterly call on refugee issues, participants were told the sports programs are necessary to help them acclimate to American culture. The cost of the sports programs has not yet been disclosed.
The conference call was held in conjunction with the Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the Department of Homeland Security’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Hillary Clinton’s State Dept Spent Millions Of Tax Payer Dollars On Lavish Goods And Failed Initiatives
This is what she does when she’s in charge of something. But then Democrats claim there wasn’t enough money for proper security for places like Benghazi, which was a lie.
Via Free Beacon:
The Republican National Committee revealed Thursday in a 21-page memo that Hillary Clinton’s State Department spent millions of dollars on lavish goods and initiatives on the taxpayers’ dime.
The State Department spent $5.4 million on a “no-bid contract for crystal stemware” and $630,000 to “increase Facebook likes on four State Department pages.”
The memo also highlighted that the State Department spent more than $600 million on failed projects in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Washington Examiner reported.
NYC Council Sings ‘Black National Anthem’ At Meeting To Protest ‘Murders’ Including Trayvon Martin, Sandra Bland…
” Just a few moments ago, and at the request of the Council’s Black Latino and Asian Caucus (BLAC), the entire City Council sang the Black National Anthem ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ written by James Weldon Johnson.
“The topic of racial justice has been at the forefront of this country’s headlines for the past several years. Our emotions were in inflamed with the murder of Trayvon Martin, and then by the murders of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Alton Sterling, and Philando Castile, to name only a few. Gun violence is in our cities nightly, while the cries for the resources needed to rise above subsistence are ignored.
None of these cases has been found to be a murder as yet.
Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman (not a police officer) in self-defense as Martin was beating Zimmerman’s head into the concrete ground.
Sandra Bland committed suicide, likely because her friends and fellow activists failed to bail her out of jail, according to a nearby inmate. She was not murdered by police.
Michael Brown had just robbed a store and attacked the officer who stopped him, trying to grab his gun. The grand jury found the officer acted in self-defense.
The other cases are still in potential litigation, and have not been found to be murders.
Not only is calling them murders is wrong, but shall we all know have individual group ‘national anthems’? The point of course of a national anthem is that it is the one song honoring and recognizing our nation.
But for the progressives who promote group think that apparently is not satisfactory…
You’re just discovering this Clinton is about, pandering to and then using black people for votes?
Erica Garner, the daughter of police chokehold victim Eric Garner, ripped the Hillary Clinton campaign in a series of tweets Thursday after new campaign emails released by WikiLeaks showed how the Democratic nominee’s staffers discussed the death of her father.
“I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed ‘using’ Eric Garner … Why would you want to ‘use my dad?” Garner tweeted along with a link to emails released by WikiLeaks. “These people will co opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.
“I’m vey (sic) interested to know exactly what @CoreyCiorciari meant when he said ‘I know we have an Erica Garner problem’ in the #PodestaEmails19,” added Garner.
Bulldozers cleared mounds of debris and demolished makeshift shelters in the “Jungle” migrant camp on Thursday, and French authorities said more than 6,000 people had been evacuated from the squalid site.
Charities said hundreds of migrants might have fled the camp rather than take part in a program to rehouse them in towns across the country.
A Reuters reporter on Thursday saw dozens of migrants, including children, still in the western part of the camp, where the dismantling had not yet started.
The Jungle, a ramshackle, overcrowded shanty town, came to symbolize Europe’s difficulty in dealing with record inflows of migrants from impoverished and wartorn regions of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, many of them bent on crossing the sea from Calais to Britain.
Socialist President Francois Hollande, facing an election six months from now, decided under local pressure to close the Jungle and relocate its inhabitants in towns and villages throughout the country pending examination of their cases.
“By next Monday, the camp will be no more. It is already gone but the (demolition) job will be finished by Monday evening,” local government prefect Fabienne Buccio told reporters as earthmovers flattened the camp, where the evacuation started on Monday.
She said more than 6,000 migrants had signed up to be taken to other parts of the country as planned, and that matched the number of people who had been living there.
One high-ranking local official, speaking on condition that he not be identified, said the camp was not totally empty.

Republican nominee Donald Trump could win the key swing states of Florida and North Carolina if Republican turnout is the same as it was during the 2014 midterm elections, according to an Alliance/ESA poll released Thursday.
Trump led Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton 47 percent to 43 percent in the four-way poll, with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein tied at 2 percent.
When the high Republican turnout model is introduced, those numbers change to 48 percent for Trump, and 42 percent for Clinton in the 3-day rolling poll. Trump’s lead decreased for the larger 5 day rolling poll. Trump earned 46 percent compared to Clinton’s 44 percent with high voter turnout.
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida led Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy in every model, including the “strong Democratic turnout” model.
Clinton carries a 1.8 percent lead in the statewide polling average, earning 46.8 percent compared to Trump’s 45 percent.
The problem of course is their Commander-in-Chief…
White House press secretary Josh Earnest on Thursday scoffed at the notion that Donald Trump has more military mastery than President Barack Obama’s advisers, after the Republican nominee again attacked the administration for previewing a military operation.
“Let me start by saying that the president is confident that he is getting good advice from our senior leaders in the military, including the secretary of defense, about the most effective way to carry out our strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIL,” Earnest said in response to a question about Trump’s repeated comments that it’s foolish for officials to talk of military operations beforehand. “The president is confident that the advice is receiving from those military advisers is better advice than anything the Republican nominee might have to say two weeks before an election.”
