The Intercept: The largest prison strike in U.S. history has been going on for nearly a week, but there's a good chance you haven't heard about it. For months, inmates at dozens of prisons across the country have been organizing through a network of smuggled cellphones, social media pages and the support of allies on the outside. The effort culminated in a mass refusal to report to prison jobs on September 9, the anniversary of the 1971 Attica prison uprising. "This is a call to action against slavery in America," organizers wrote in an announcement that for weeks circulated inside and outside prisons nationwide, and that sums up the strikers' primary demand: an end to free prison labor. "Forty-five years after Attica, the waves of change are returning to America's prisons. This September we hope to coordinate and generalize these protests, to build them into a single tidal shift that the American prison system cannot ignore or withstand."

Along with with daughter Ivanka, Donald Trump on Tuesday plans to unveil a child-care agenda that is aimed at attracting the female and suburban voters who have been reluctant to embrace his campaign.

Trump has not spoken much about child care during his campaign. But his daughter raised the issue prominently during her speech at the Republican National Convention.

The plan being presented in Pennsylvania relies heavily on tax deductions, rebates for low-income earners and personal savings accounts. It also promises at least six weeks of paid leave for new mothers, according to an outline provided by the campaign to reporters.

"September 17: The Trump Foundation makes a $25,000 contribution to a PAC backing Bondi.

October 15: The Florida Attorney General's office backtracks, telling the Orlando Sentinel there was never any consideration of joining the lawsuit against Trump U because they had received only one complaint during the time Bondi was in office. This was untrue: the AG's office had received a couple dozen complaints, but had weeded them out so they could say there was only one."

Donald Trump has pledged to change the libel laws in a way that could undermine the first amendment and the freedom of the press.
Speaking at a rally in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, shortly after accepting an endorsement from New Jersey governor Chris Christie, Trump pledged if elected president to "open up our libel laws so when [newspapers] write purposely negative stories … we can sue them and make lots of money".
