SSDD Open Thread: Roy Moore Wants to Run for Senate Again

Sure, his fellow Repubs have publicly vowed to ‘crush’ him‘This place has enough creepy old men’. They’re even trying to recruit Jeff Sessions to run against him (as if that idea wasn’t six different nightmares in its own right). But FiveThirtyEight refuses to dismiss ‘Sheriff’ Moore’s chances:

… [T]here is one factor working in Moore’s favor — a crowded primary field. Because the eventual GOP nominee stands a good chance of beating Jones in the general election (Alabama is 27 points more Republican than the country as a whole), even more candidates could join the race. A large primary field may fragment the vote, making it unlikely that a candidate could win a majority and avoid a runoff and making it easier for Moore to advance to a runoff with only the support of his base…

I kicked in a few bucks, as a preemptive offering, because I’m superstitious like that.

    Mock, Paper, Scissors meme of Moore’s campaign vehicle, needs to go viral,

    https://mockpaperscissors.com/2019/06/19/judge-roy-moore-is-probably-in/

    In other news:

    (Reuters) – He ran social media for Saudi Arabia’s crown prince. He masterminded the arrest of hundreds of his country’s elite. He detained a Lebanese prime minister. And, according to two intelligence sources, he ran journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s brutal killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by giving orders over Skype.

    Saud al-Qahtani, a top aide for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, is one of the fall guys as Riyadh tries to stem international outrage at Khashoggi’s death. On Saturday, Saudi state media said King Salman had sacked Qahtani and four other officials over the killing carried out by a 15-man hit team.

    But Qahtani’s influence in the crown prince’s entourage has been so vast over the past three years – his own rise tracking that of his boss – that it will be hard for Saudi officials to paint Qahtani as the mastermind of the murder without also raising questions about the involvement of Prince Mohammed, according to several sources with links to the royal court.

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-khashoggi-adviser-insight/how-the-man-behind-khashoggi-murder-ran-the-killing-via-skype-idUSKCN1MW2HA

    They left out the part where the UN Panel on the murder of Kashoggi also found that he, personally tortured Lebanon’s Prime Minister Harreri.

    So let’s see,

    Sawdi Arabia, rogue nation, Crown Prince Mohammed BoneSaw under investigation for murders,

    Israel, rogue nation, Bibi’s wife convicted, Bibi’s day in the dock to come,

    USA, rogue nation, dozens if investigations into Treason Tribble and his Minions, many convictions,

    So, War with Iran, amirite?

    I think we have found the New Axis of Evil.

    And in other other news, this is the putative next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (reposted from a thread downstairs somewhere):

    Police called to loud altercation at Boris Johnson’s home

    Police were called to the home of Boris Johnson and his partner, Carrie Symonds, in the early hours of Friday morning after neighbours heard a loud altercation involving screaming, shouting and banging.

    The argument could be heard outside the property where the potential future prime minister is living with Symonds, a former Conservative party head of press.

    A neighbour told the Guardian they heard a woman screaming followed by “slamming and banging”. At one point Symonds could be heard telling Johnson to “get off me” and “get out of my flat”.

    The neighbour said that after becoming concerned they knocked on the door but received no response. “I [was] hoping that someone would answer the door and say ‘We’re okay’. I knocked three times and no one came to the door.”

    The neighbour decided to call 999. Two police cars and a van arrived within minutes, shortly after midnight, but left after receiving reassurances from both the individuals in the flat that they were safe….

    The neighbour said they recorded the altercation from inside their flat out of concern for Symonds. On the recording, heard by the Guardian, Johnson can be heard refusing to leave the flat and telling Symonds to “get off my fucking laptop” before there is a loud crashing noise.

    Symonds is heard saying Johnson had ruined a sofa with red wine: “You just don’t care for anything because you’re spoilt. You have no care for money or anything.”

    The neighbour said: “There was a smashing sound of what sounded like plates. There was a couple of very loud screams that I’m certain were Carrie and she was shouting to ‘get out’ a lot. She was saying ‘get out of my flat’ and he was saying no. And then there was silence after the screaming. My partner, who was in bed half asleep, had heard a loud bang and the house shook.”

    It’s from The Guardian. Having trouble linking from there.

    Just unbelievable, the way scum rises to the top on both sides of the pond.

    Male, southern and middle-aged: meet the Tories choosing the next PM

    If they love their party, Conservative members have an unusual way of showing it. According to a survey by YouGov, 54% of party members say they would rather see their own party destroyed than have Brexit not take place. Sixty-one per cent would prefer to see “significant damage to the UK economy” and 63% would consider Scotland leaving the United Kingdom to be a price worth paying.

    As they prepare to select the next prime minister at a time of crisis, the attitudes of this group are arguably more consequential for the rest of the country than ever before. And the makeup of the membership appears to be changing – and becoming ever more supportive of a hard Brexit.

    DRPK’s Foreign Minister showed up a a ceremony, 3 seats over from Little Kim, after the Media claimed that the whole team had been fed to piranas, for the failure of the Vietnam meeting.

    Funny that.

    The “best evidence” the US floats for Iran attacking Tankers in the Gulf, II, Electric Boogaloo, is an IRGC UXO crew risking their lives, to remove an Italian made limpet mine that hasn’t dentonated, from the hull, above the waterline*, after rescuing the tankers crew.

    *the Italian limpet mines are a shaped charge, that relies on the tamping effect of water, to be effective. Placed above water the detonation causes the magnetic seal to break, the cone that shapes the charge to fly away from the hull, and the jet of the formed penetrator to be positioned to far away for effective penetration and after effect*.

    Meanwhile, back at the Ranch,

    Sawdi Arabia is excecuting dissents, former members of government, children and women rights activists with public beheadings, cruifixions, and of course, bone saws while alive and pizza ovens.

    Israel has snipers shooting women, children, medics, media, old men, to cripple, not to kill, in the hundreds, for peaceful protests, detains over 2000 children in black sites and broke ground on a Trump branded illegal settlement on Palestinian land.

    Republican state senators in Oregon continued to engage in a high-stakes game of brinksmanship today with Democratic lawmakers, saying they are prepared to sue if the Senate president goes through with a threat to impose a $500 fine for each day they delay a vote on a landmark climate plan.

    “We will file legal action,” said Sen. Tim Knopp, a Republican from Bend who has said he has been in three states in the past three days. “If they were trying to bring us back, threatening to arrest us and impose fines isn’t going to work.”

    Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick pushed back, saying Republicans have no legal course as the fine is explicitly written in statute. A GoFundMe to cover the rogue lawmakers’ expenses and fines raised nearly $30,000 in less than a day. State ethics laws prohibit officials from receiving gifts exceeding $50, so it’s unclear whether senators could access the money.

    – Mass Protest, but y’all arn’t going to go all Hong Kong over refugees,

    – Direct Action, like non violent sabotage,

    – Covert Action like the Reagan/Bush Era smuggling of South and Central American Refugee’s to Canada via an underground railroad. Unfortunately, the Clinton Administration and Canada signed the FSN Agreement, with the US avowing and taking on legal responsibility to accept and protect refugee’s, and we can’t get Trudeau to tear it up yet, and the Survelliance State makes reviving the underground railroad, extremely difficult.

    – Revolution.

    Voting Treason Twitler out in November, 2020 won’t do anything about the raids this weekend.

    An example of Direct Action:

    @PeteButtigieg arrived. He was immediately issued 10 demand by protestors the second he left his car. He’s now taking really hard questions. This is honestly unlike anything I’ve seen. Pics and video soon.

    Apparently the Floriduh Cops jumped the gun.

    Florida has an Equitable Property Law, which mean’s it’s only “his” Apartment and “his” guns, if he never brought them inside the marriage, ( eg, spending joint income post marriage on rent or ammo, or, even taking his guns to her place overnight for “security”),

    Which should have required depositions from both parties, and a search of financial records, before laying charges.

    Hopefully, she gets a good lawyer.

    Four anti-fascist activists cited for disorderly conduct after a December street brawl with a pair of white supremacists in downtown Corvallis will not be prosecuted.

    In a letter this week to Benton County authorities, Yamhill County District Attorney Brad Berry announced his decision to decline prosecution, saying there was no clear case to be made against the antifa activists. Neither of the two neo-Nazis involved in the fracas was ever arrested.”

    Extremely anecdotal from Alabama:

    In a gathering of 20, news about Moore running again came up. Eyeballs rolled so hard I thought I was in a bowling alley.

    That said, if Evil Keebler Elf runs, I wouldn’t give odds on the outcome.

    The fight continues.

    Moore has so many other branches of government to get kicked out of. OK, at lest 2 more, seeing as how he’s been booted from the judicial branch twice.

    If I were a betting man, I’d bet he’s the next Senator from the great State of Alabama.

    RENTON, WA (KIRO/CNN) – The FBI is investigating a possible explosion that took place at the United Christian Church Wednesday morning. It’s the second attack on the church this week.
    The apparent target is a Pride Month display the church put up to show its inclusivity.

    Noises woke people up in the neighborhood.

    “There was explosives taped to the back of the doors, and you could see where the other ones had blown up. One did not go off,” said Bailey Laronde, who teaches preschool in a building near the church.

    In this longer version of the video, you can see the woman apparently posing no immediate threat as she passes behind Mark Field. He marches her out of the room by her neck.

    Under Florida law, she didn’t have to reside there. Once married, sleeping over counts, being given a key counts, ( or not taking one back from when they were dating), using any communal income, to pay rent, utilities, groceries, booze, ammo, new guns, cleaning products.

    How did she get the roommate’s gun if Florida Law for storage was being followed?

    If Trump loses the election, then on January 20, 2021, just after noon, he will be taken into custody for multiple indictments in multiple states. Wherever he is, unless he flees the nation for a state where he would be protected from extradition.

    All the arresting officers will need to do is show the arrest warrants to the security detail and allow them to accompany Trump into his custody. You think the Secret Service loves this ambulatory excrement? Nope. No way he treats them with any respect.
