ARound and ’round the media goes, where it stops, nobody knows

I don’t really believe the qualifying words which I’ve italicized in this tale.
Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee. The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again.

Donna Brazile, who fed Hilary Clinton at least one debate question in advance, now accuses Clinton campaign of rigging primaries, internal corruption, unethical finances, and sucking the Democrat party dry.

The Press Attacks WSJ for Criticizing FusionGPS — Without Confessing That One Of Their Sources Attacking the WSJ Is… A FusionGPS Employee

Media and leftist figures blasted Trump for calling for death penalty for NYC truck driver terrorist, but not for Vegas terrorists. Er. Duh.

NBC reports that more celebrities, newsmakers shared the phony Russian tweets. Pretty hilarious. Russia was working for Hilary. Here are some of the Russian ads.

‘Republicans are evil, we’re the good guys’ is not very nuanced, is it? More here.

Donna Brazile has some explosive accusations:
“I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.”
It’s odd how Brazile waited a year to tell anybody the primaries were rigged and she knew it, and by odd I mean nakedly self-serving.
Althouse thinks we need a special prosecutor and independent investigation.

WaPo gives four Pinnochios to anybody repeating the Democrat talking point that working class families will see increased taxes from the GOP tax plan. it’s the opposite:
“Meanwhile, more than 97 million (80 percent) will receive a tax cut. Doing the math the same way the JEC staff did, we come up with an average tax cut of about $450 for those 97 million households.

Indeed, at the far end of the chart, you will see that every quintile on average receives a tax cut — not a tax increase.

In any tax bill, there are going to be winners and losers. The top quintile receives the biggest average tax cut, both in dollars and change in after-tax income — but also has the largest percentage (32.3 percent) of households that will face a tax increase.

“There are different ways to approach the TPC estimates,” Veal said. “Key Republicans have been asked whether they could guarantee that no middle-class family will get a tax increase under their plan. Our calculation shows that some households — 8 million — making under $86,100 will receive an increase based on TPC’s estimates.”

By the time we contacted the DPCC about the error, The Fact Checker’s questions must have circulated.

“Once we realized that the original report could have been clearer, we updated it immediately,” a spokesman said. Now the updated report makes clearer that 8 million households could face a tax increase — though again it fails to acknowledge that most people would have a tax cut.

The inaccurate tweets remain.

The Pinocchio Test

In their haste to condemn the GOP tax plan, Democrats have spread far and wide the false claim that families making less than $86,100 on average will face a hefty tax hike. Actually, it’s the opposite. Most families in that income range would get a tax cut. Any Democrat who spread this claim should delete their tweets and make clear they were in error.”

Former abortion practitioner testifies before Congress about her regrets:
“The doctor condemned abortion saying, “Because we can’t see what they will become, we sacrifice unborn babies for the people we can see. Our society has been subjected to extreme propaganda. We have sanitized our language to make abortion more palatable.”

Aultman described how she referred to unborn babies as “fetuses” when killing them in abortions but as “babies” when they were wanted and she regretted the incongruity. She also recalled the “tiny but perfectly formed limbs, intestines, kidneys, and other organs” of aborted babies — whose parts Planned Parenthood sells after abortions.

She also recalled a woman who had multiple abortions and little moral qualms with aborting another baby.

“What struck me was the apathy of the first patient and the hostility of the second towards the fetus, contrasted with the sorrow and misery of the woman who knew what it was to have a child,” Aultman testified. “I realized that the baby was the innocent victim in all of this. The fact that the baby was unwanted was no longer enough justification for me to kill it. I could no longer do abortions.””

Accusations keep coming in Hollywood- four women have accused Danny Masterson, That 70s Show star (and a scientoligist) of violent rape. Scientology cult has gotten involved and stalled the case.

Married priests in special circumstances within the Catholic church?

VA race– Ralph NOrtham ad portrays all Gillespie voters as murderous racists. Northam claims he didn’t endorse it and had no idea, but his campaign claimed it as an in-kind contribution.
