Two conspiracy theorists were arrested Monday after allegedly harassing residents of Sutherland Springs, Texas, the site of the Nov. 5 mass shooting at a town church where 26 congregants died. Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy allegedly found the two writing “the truth shall set you free” on a chapel poster that is meant for well-wishers to sign. When Pomeroy confronted the two—identified as Robert Ussery, 54, the founder of conspiracy website Side Thorn, and 56-year-old Jodi Mann—they allegedly began shouting about their belief that the shooting was staged. Pomeroy’s 14-year-old daughter died in the shooting, along with 25 others. Pomeroy told the San Antonio Express-News said that Ussery “continually yelled and screamed and hollered and told me he was gonna hang me from a tree, and pee on me while I’m hanging… He said, ‘Your daughter never even existed. Show me her birth certificate. Show me anything to say she was here.’” Charging information on Ussery and Mann was not immediately available.
I wonder if Nunberg’s entire meltdown (real or not) would lead to a mistrial, except that it hasn’t reached trial. It would seem he’d no longer a reliable witness; more likely that’s what he wants them to think.
Every month or so I receive a solicitation in the mail from Judicial Watch, whose motto (according to the junk mail solicitation) is “Because no one is above the law!” I reckon that, by the next mailing, they will surely have moved on from Hillary Clinton to Kushner and/or the illegal use of the seal.
Yeah, I don’t know why the likes of Judicial Watch and Joe Arpaio bother with repeatedly sending me junk mail. You’d think they (i.e. conservative organizations, in general) would check the demographics of the Zip code in which I live, and save on postage costs by not sending mail there at all:
nearly 54% Hispanic
38% African American
12% White alone, Not Hispanic or Latino
EDIT: Our county (not sure about our Zip code, specifically) went 88% in favor of Clinton/Kaine and 8% for Trump/Pence.
I don’t believe ex-Sheriff Joe nor Judicial Watch are going to muster a lot of sympathy in this Zip code, but maybe I’m being prejudiced.
Latest mailing was from Star Parker, who at least had the decency to put a stamp on the return envelope so I could say “REMOVE ME.”
