they welcomed michelle and our daughters on their first visit to the city of lights. by my bed, in the residence is a picture of me and michelle in luxembourg rdens, kissing. those are the memories we have of paparis. as early on, i have no gray hair. so when tragedy struck that evening, our hearts broke, too. that stadium and concert hall, those restaurants and cafes, we see our ow in the faces of the french peop, we see ourselves. that's why so manyy americans have embraced the blue, white, and red. why americans at candle light vigils have joined together to sing the marseilles. we have never forgotten how the french people stood with us after 9/11.
11:04 am
[ speaking french ] it's been noted that the terrorists did n direct their attacks against the french government or military. rather they focused their violence on the very spirit of france. by extension, on all liberal democracies. this was an attack on our free and open societies. where people come together to celebrate. and sing. and compete. and targeting venues where people come together from around the world, killing citizens of nearly 20 countries, including america. this was an take on the veryy idea that people of different races and religions and backgrounds can live together in peace. in short, this was not only a strike against one of the world's great cities it was an take against the world itself. it's the same madness that has
11:05 am
nigeria to the sighnai from lebanon to iraq. it's a scourge that threatens all of us. that's why, for more than a year, the united states, france, and our coalition of some 65 nations have been united in one mission. to destroy these isil terrorists and defeat their vile ideology. today, president hollande and i reviewed our coalition's progress. more than 8,000 air strikes combined with local partners on the ground, have pushed isil back from territory in both iraq and syria. today, president hollande and i agreed our nations must do even more together. u.s. assistance that has supported recent french strik in syria. and we're going to keep stepping up that coordination. and as we saw, with the attack
11:06 am
inmali, the terrorist threat goes beyd isil. this week, i'll sign legislation to sustain our support, including air sport and intelligence to countries like france. as rewoot out terrorist networks. 'll do more to prevent attacks at home. building on our recent intelligence agreement, we'll share information with france and in the wake of paris and wi the threats in belgium, there's a fwroeing recognition among european nations that they need to ramp up efforts to proe vent the floww of foreign fighters. as part of that, i'm calling on the european union to finally implement the agreement long in the works that would require aiinesrl to shareassenger information, so we can do more to stop foreign t terrorist fighters from entering our countries undetected. i'm prepared to send team of experts to work on this with our
11:07 am
european partners to make sure we're redoubling our efforts together. garding the broader crisis in syria. president hollande and i agree that russia's strikes against the moderate opposition only bolster theassad regime. we agree russia could play a more constructive role if it were to shift the focus of its strike to defeating isil. and like wise, president hollande and i free the besest way to bringng pce is through the principles reafrmed in vie yeen that. ey require an active support of peace from russia. finally, francois and i understand that one of our greatest weapons in the fight
11:08 am
resilience of our r people. and here i want to speak correctlycorrect ly -- directly to the american people. horrific. i understand that people worried that something similar could happen here. i want you to know that we will continue to do power to defend our nation. since 9/11, we have taken extraordinary measures to strengthen security. our professials, federal, state, and local, they are tireleless. they have prevented attacks and have saved lives. they are working every hour, every day for our security. they did so before paris. they do so now. and they will not stop.
11:09 am
but it's not just our security professionals who will defeat isil and other terrorist groups. as americans, we all have a role to play manyin how we respond to threats. groups like isil cannot defeat us on the battlefield. so they try to terrorize us at home. against soft targets, intercept people. even as we're vigilant, we cannot and we will not succumb to fear. nor can we allow fear to divide us. that's how terrorists win. we cannot give them the victory of chahanging how we go about living our lives. the good news is, americans are resilient. we mourned the lives lost at ft. hood.
11:10 am
chattanooga. but we did not waver. our communities have come together. we have gone to ball games and we have gone to concerts and shopping and men and women who want to serve our country continue to go to military recruiting offices. we're vigilant. we take precauons. we go about our business. to those who want to harm us, our actions have shown that we have too much resolve and too much character. americans will not be terrorized. i say all this because another part of being vigilalant, another part of defeating terrorists like isil is upholding the the rights and freedoms that define our two great republics. that includes freedom of re

11:16 am
of refugee services under the iowa department of human services but it helps mostly with employment services for refugees. refugee resettlement happens through three different agencies in iowa - who work with the federal government... not the state. sabrina: meanwhile, indiana's governor is getting sued by the a-c-l-u for his decision to suspend the refugee program in the state. the group says governor mike pence's decision to refuse the refugees violates the constitution and federal authority. pence says he just wants to protect the residents of indiana. " i'm certainly encouraged "by the leadership by the fbi director and attorney general expressed earlier today, none of which changes the fact that the director said and j johnson of homeland security have said that there are serious gaps in the kind of informaiton that we currently have under the current program." sabrina meteorologist sam schrier joins us again with a look at your forecast. sam weather adlib: yesterday ended up being a pretty nice day in the afternoon with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 40s.

"i've been teaching for 34 years. that's the longest day i've ever had. that was tough." "it was dead silent, then the tears came with that after, they started processing what had happened."

sabrina still to come on local five news midday... we have financial advisor cameron mccarty on for some financial tips for the
11:24 am
cameron mccarty planning. elder care. topics you plan to discuss when you're passing the turkey and gravy. but if your around for a few days over the thanksgiving holiday, you might want to consider making a date to talk about these important topics. financial professional cameron mccarty, owner of vivid tax advisory services is here to give us ideas on how to start the conversation and what should be covered. q. talking finances. why the thanksgiving holiday? i agree thanksgiving seems like a strange time to have this conversation - but for many families, this is the only time that everyone is under the same roof for an extended period of time. so take a break after the thanksgiving meal or after black friday shopping to discuss this important topic. i understand it can be a difficult people put this off. haven't had detailed their adult children (according to a study by fidelity). but nearly all those who've had these tough talks say they have greater peace of mind! q: how do you suggest parents start the
11:25 am
conversation with their adult children? many of my clients are in or near retirement, and i encourage them to start the conversation. start by telling your kids that you want to make sure they have all the information they need before you can no longer take care of your finances. let them know this is because you care about them, and you want to avoid extra headaches and stresses for them. without a financial discussion, it could be like a jigsaw puzzle for them trying to put all the pieces of your finances together. many adult children don't bring this up because they don't think it's any of their business. i say to them- you couldn't be more wrong- take the initiative and start the conversation. q: what should be covered in the conversation? here are some of the essentials. it may take more than one meeting. but, i know you'll feel good about just getting started. i have a complete list on my website, vividtaxadvisory.com, for you to print out to help with the conversation. legal: share about your estate plans. who is your attorney? what legal documents do you have in your possession? is there a will or trust? parents can ask for their children's input. one child may want to inherit the family vacation home rather than money - but those
11:26 am
wishes won't be clear until you have the conversation. in addition, parents might want to name an adult child as power of attorney to make financial and healthcare decisions for them later in life. healthcare: share the medical insurance you have besides medicare. what is covered? do you have long term care insurance? do you have assets set aside to pay for care at home should you need it one day? what amount is available? talk to your children about how you want to grant them permission to speak with your doctors. income and expenses: tell them what income you have - social security or pensions. talk about your debts and expenses. again, you don't have to share dollar figures - just ideas and then share where your records are kept for your investments and the name of your financial professional. tell your kids that if necessary they have the permission to contact your financial professional. keep in mind that any financial professional will be required to get permission in writing from you before they can share detailed information without a legal document granting authority. financial records: parents, tell your adult children where you keep your tax returns and who prepares them. share where you have your bank accounts and
11:27 am
you bank online - and where you keep your usernames and passwords. if your children don't know

an even stronger partnership that will develop between the united states and france in the fight against isil. heightened security here in the u.s. and across the world remain a top concern for both leaders. sabrina: and across the country-- security stepped up at airports all across the country -- after the fbi and homeland security warned local law enforcement about a paris- style attack -- and the state department issues an alert to americans traveling overseas -- abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is tracking the threat. "as shoppers and travelers prepare for the holiday season the new fbi/ homeland security bulletin warns police what they should be most concerned about. the bulletin states that homegrown radicals "inspired or directed by syria based operatives - represent the most likely (isis) threat to the homeland." no specific plot has been identified -- but the bulletin says isis sympathizers, quote "could seek to replicate the effects of the paris attacks using similar weapons and tactics, although

united states, with 73 percent wanting to send u.s. troops to fight isis in iraq and syria and 83 percent saying the u.s. and their allies are losing the fight against isis. sabrina meteorologist sam schrier joins us again with a look at your forecast. sam weather adlib: yesterday ended up being a pretty nice day in the afternoon with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 40s. today we are in for a lot more of the same, except this time we should be a bit warmer! the skies today will be partly cloudy with a breezy southeast wind and highs in the low 50s. overnight tonight we are going to become overcast and stay breezy, so low temperatures should degrees. wednesday is day with light late afternoon showers, should pick up later that night through thursday. thanksgiving day is going to be overcast, very wet, and cold with highs 40s. friday we might see an early shower in the morning, but most of dry, cold, and windy. gets a bit more complex with rain and wintry mix possibilities picking up. there will be rain just south of iowa on saturday, but at this time it looks like we'll probably

" elias: what does it take to get a dan gable endorsement? dan: real simple, he's gonna have to get my wife to give me the okay, kathy. elias: how tough is that? dan: that's pretty tough. but i think its not as
11:36 am
tough as it could be, because she's been doing her homework and following. i just had to get rushed over here from meeting donald trump for the second time. i was really hoping to get some time with him because i want to know who i'm dealing with. you know i read and i see and i follow but one on one gives you that indication and we didn't get that. i guess they didn't compensate for the wind in his jet. so, i'm a long ways away but with that in mind its not too far away. " sabrina: not many americans trust the federal government - - that's what a new poll says. poll says. the pew says just 19
11:37 am
percent of americans surveyed trust the government most or all of the time. according to pew...that's close to the lowest level in the past 60 years. when it comes to political parties, 32 percent of republicans and g-o-p leaners surveyed say they're angry with the government. that's compared to just 12 percent for democrats and democratic leaners. sabrina: and some fun stats to share with you from the latest bloomberg poll. they were given four options -- the super bowl, the iowa caucuses, the opening of the new star wars movie and march madness. maybe no surprise here-- the super bowl won out. the iowa surprise here-- the super bowl won out. the iowa caucuses though, coming in second ahead of the opening of star wars. sabrina still to come on local 5 news midday...
