The 'DIRT' on Hillary Clinton was nothing more than the GOP fevered imagination of what deleted

emails might contain. I delete hundreds of emails every week. There is and never was any dirt on Hillary Clinton. And those who are on DU that trying to imply as much (saw several yesterday) are helping Trump and the Repugs. Please stop. The primary is over, the election is over...just stop.

Manafort, Gates surrender to Mueller, source says- Rick Gates too.

Also, NYT is reporting this but I didn't use it as there is a paywall.

Washington (CNN) "Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter
Gates is a longtime business associate of Manafort, having worked together since the mid-2000s, and served as his deputy on the campaign.
Manafort arrived at the FBI's Washington field office Monday morning. He and Gates were indicted under seal on Friday, the source said. The two are being processed separately, according to a law enforcement official. They will later be transported to federal district court in Washington later Monday morning."

Activist kicked off American Airlines flight, alleges 'white male aggression (Tamika Mallory)

The pilot removed her. If what is written is true and it sure looks like it, he needs to be disciplined or fired.

“He asked me, 'Would I behave? Could I control myself?'” Mallory recounted. “I had not raised my voice. I was not screaming at the [gate agent]. I just firmly let her know that I didn’t appreciate the way I was treated.”
But after taking her seat, she was called up to the front of the plane over the loudspeaker, where Mallory said the pilot pointed at her and said, ‘Her, off.’”

"...The deal would extend key Obamacare payments to insurers for two years and give states more flexibility to change Obamacare rules....The deal would restore $106 million in Obamacare outreach funding that was cut by President Trump, according to a Democratic aide.In a concession to Republicans, the deal would also amend a "guardrail" in Obamacare to give states more flexibility to change rules through a waiver. States would now be allowed to make changes as long as they allowed "comparable" affordability to consumers, according to Alexander, He said minimum standards for what insurance must cover has not been changed, which represents a priority for Democrats negotiating the compromise..."

This is the best we can hope for...play for time. Hope it will pass.

Ask the Women's March to Reconsider Sen. Sanders' Role...sign the petition.

"We, the undersigned, urge the Women’s March to reconsider giving Sen. Bernie Sanders a headlining role at the Women’s Convention on October 27. The convention represents the first gathering of its kind for 40 years, putting it at the center of an intersectional feminist movement. For an event of this kind to center a white, male politician over emerging women leaders, particularly those of color, is very disappointing to us.
We showed up in droves from around the country to march in Washington, New York, Los Angeles, and many other cities because we believe that this country cannot move forward without women’s voices and women’s rights. We marched because the 2016 election put an admitted sexual predator in the White House, and made women in this country and around the world less safe. That day was filled with anger, but also with a deeply shared hope that in resisting together, we could save our country from the devastating impact of a Trump administration. "
