If Trump loses I hope he will show us what he has by serving in some governmental position and help the country that helped him so much.  Probably the best way to help unite the country and re build his party.  An unselfish act. He is known for his patriotism, right?

Jerusalem Ultra-Orthodox Groups Display Public Posters Demanding That Women Avoid Main Street

by jonathanturley
220px-haredi_judaismPosters in Jerusalem neighborhoods have reminded women of the hold of orthodox groups over life in the city. The posters ask women in an ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem neighborhood to avoid the main street during the intermediate days of the religious holiday of Sukkot. So women are expected to use side streets in the town of Mea Sharim, one of the oldest Jewish neighbourhoods in Jerusalem, to avoid men seeing them.

Quid Pro Quo: Top State Department Official Offered Deal To FBI If It Would Change Classification Of Clinton Emails

by jonathanturley
220px-patrick-f-kennedy_2002I have previously written that recent disclosures over immunity deals with Clinton aides has seriously undermined the credibility of the FBI investigation into the email scandal and raises legitimate questions over the role of top ranking Justice Department officials in the closing of the investigation without criminal charges. Now a far more serious allegation has surfaced with the release of a FBI "302" that states that State Department Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy proposed a “quid pro quo” to convince the FBI to strip the classification on an email from Hillary Clinton’s server. The FBI agent reported the encounter as an effort to "influence" the FBI in return to giving the Bureau long-sought agent placements overseas. Such an offer is more than a standard inter-agency "horse trade." If the agent's account is accurate, it was an effort to influence a criminal investigation to protect a high ranking politician and, additionally, an effort to alter a key piece of evidence. The fact that such an effort would be simply brushed aside by the FBI is shocking in itself and again raises questions over Director James Comey's pledge to pursue any possible charges with independence and vigor.

    Nancy Grace says goodbye to HLN

    Former Atlanta prosecutor Nancy Grace hosted her last true-crime show on HLN on Thursday.
    Grace’s last show included clips from some of her most popular segments, including her coverage of the Casey Anthony case, the Associated Press reports. Grace ended the show by thanking her fans and saying, “It’s not goodbye, it’s just good night friend.”
    Known for her pro-prosecution take on the news, Grace broke HLN viewership records with her coverage of the Casey Anthony trial, Slate reports. “But in recent years,” Slate says, Grace “has seen her cultural relevance fade.” Her show’s cable-news rankings dropped from 18th in 2011 to 45th this past September.
    Grace has said tragedy led to her own interest in justice. She was only 19 when her fiancé was murdered outside a convenience store.
    Her righteous indignation backfired, according to the Slate profile, when she pointed the finger at accused wrongdoers who weren’t charged or were later exonerated.
    According to Slate, Grace misidentified Elizabeth Smart’s kidnapper and “became one of the loudest voices condemning the Duke lacrosse players accused of rape. It’s unnerving to watch her coverage of the scandal now, to see her seethe with contempt from the moment the players’ mug shots appeared on her screen. ‘I’m so glad they didn’t miss a lacrosse game over a little thing like gang rape!’ she declared on one show.” The prosecutor in the Duke lacrosse case was later disbarredfor his actions in the case.
    Grace’s show will be replaced by a legal show anchored by Ashleigh Banfield.
