    Salmon Rushdie was attacked and possibly stabbed today. His condition is unknown.

    Author Salman Rushdie attacked on lecture stage in New York

    …An Associated Press reporter witnessed a man storm the stage at the Chautauqua Institution and begin punching or stabbing Rushdie as he was being introduced. The author was taken or fell to the floor, and the man was restrained.
    Rushdie’s condition was not immediately known...

    Iran’s hardline newspapers praise Salman Rushdie’s attacker Hadi Matar


    Motherfuckers never sleep do they. Scary thing is the guy lives in New Jersey. I used to buy pizza in Baltimore from a joint on Falls Road that prior to 9-11 had framed pictures of the Ayatollah on the wall. After 9-11 they took them down. Pizza Bolis is the name. But the pizza was good.

    Wow. Was not expecting this one.



    Roy Moore awarded $8.2 million in PAC defamation case

    Alabama Republican Roy Moore this week received a whopping $8.2 million payout in his defamation case against a super PAC that had targeted him during the 2017 Senate race, with the GOP politician hailing the win as one measure to help “restore my reputation” after that contentious election.

    Moore had sued the Senate Majority PAC over claims that it had defamed him when it ran an ad suggesting that he solicited sex from a 14-year-old girl at a mall in Alabama years ago. At the time, Moore’s campaign was dealing with sustained allegations that, as a man in his 30s, he had asked out teenagers in Alabama in the 1970s and 1980s.

    The Senate Majority PAC ran an ad during the campaign in which it claimed that Moore “was “banned from the Gadsden mall” for “soliciting sex from young girls.”

    One of Moore’s attorneys said the PAC “strung quotes together to make a single statement” and “that’s what the jury found offensive.”

    The PAC told the Associated Press that they intended to appeal the ruling. Moore, meanwhile, praised the decision.

    “We’re very thankful to God for an opportunity to help restore my reputation which was severely damaged by the 2017 election,” he told the news wire.

    These PACS have also become a big headache. Sure, people can get their voice out, but they are also abused by big pocket machines.

    These PACS have also become a big headache. Sure, people can get their voice out, but they are also abused by big pocket machines.
    Moore’s actions are gross, but this ad clearly strung two quotes together to make it seem like he solicited a 14-yr old when he hadn’t. He did, apparently, tell her she was pretty and start asking her out 2 years later. Seems like the jury felt there was a difference because at 16 it’d be legal in most states (if not gross), but that’s not true at 14.

    Sure seems kind of hard to screw up to make given what Moore apparently had a habit of doing without embellishing.

    Georgia Governor Files Motion to Quash Grand Jury Subpoena in State’s Election Probe

    By Mimi Nguyen Ly August 18, 2022



    “[T]he Governor agreed to a voluntary interview to be held on July 25, 2022, but when counsel for the Governor asked reasonable questions of the [District Attorney’s] Office regarding the scope of that interview, the DA’s Office unilaterally canceled the interview and issued the Subpoena,” attorneys for Kemp said in the motion (pdf) filed on Aug. 17 in Fulton County Superior Court. “Why the DA’s Office acted so abruptly is unclear.”
