Josh Hawley (r) [2016 file photo].

From Missouri’s junior right wingnut sycophant in the U.S. Senate:

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
.@realDonaldTrump slapped new sanctions on Iran today. Showing toughness and strategic judgment, which is more than you can say for his DC critics. Keep up the pressure but on our terms. POTUS also right that other countries need to step up & help protect the Strait
12:02 PM – 24 Jun 2019

Somebody wins the Internets today. One of the responses:

American Carnage @Cynfulfan
Replying to @HawleyMO @realDonaldTrump
Is it Strait or Straight? You can’t both be right.
1:38 PM – 24 Jun 2019

Alrighty then.

At about 10:30 a.m. after the rally under the capitol rotunda the demonstration marched to the Governor’s Mansion:

“When politicians lie, people die”

“So bad, even introverts are here”

In front of the Governor’s Mansion in Jefferson City.

Handmaids.

“Women brought you here and women will vote you out”

“Never again”

“No country for old men”

“Oppression is so 1972”

“I will not go quietly back to the 1950s”

“Keep abortion safe and legal”

“We will not go back”

“Stop the war on women, we will not be hushed”

“There’s nothing scary about choice, scary is when you don’t have a choice”

Leaving a message for Governor Mike Parson (r):

Left on the fence at the Governor’s Mansion.

Fierce.

This morning in Jefferson City several hundred individuals showed up at the capitol building (in rainy weather) to protest the radical anti-choice policies and legislation of the republican controlled Missouri General Assembly and Governor Mike Parson (r) and his administration. The rally portion was scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m. on the south lawn, but rainy weather moved that portion of the event indoors under the dome.

“We aren’t ovary-acting”

Individuals with their signs started showing up under the dome after going through security shortly after 8:30 a.m.

“I am not your incubator”

The rally and subsequent march to the Governor’s Mansion was initiated by one grassroots individual via social media. The idea snowballed and a permit to demonstrate on the capitol grounds was secured.

“Queen of my own uterus, thank you very much”

The rally under the dome allowed time for individuals to gather, chant, and speak out before the short march to the Governor’s Mansion.

“Keep your rosaries off my ovaries”

“My body, my choice”

“My uterus has more regulations than your gun”

“If you cut off my reproductive choices can I cut off yours?”

“We will not go back”

“Keep your bans off my body”

Speaking.

“Never again”

“If I wanted government in my womb I’d fuck a senator”

“Choice is freedom”

“She had a heartbeat, too”

Handmaid.

So far.

GNDN – “Goes nowhere, does nothing” – the label on access panels and Jefferies Tubes (access passageways, named after the set designer) on the set of the 1960s science fiction television series Star Trek.

Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission:

No expenditures were listed in the April quarterly report. The PAC was established on January 29, 2019. A search for committee contributions via the MEC database came up blank.

And, before:

C190784 02/04/2019 Believe in Life and Liberty – BILL PAC David Steward PO BOX 1724 Maryland Heights MO 63043 World Wide Technology, Inc Executive 2/4/2019 $75,000.00

[emphasis added]

This PAC is sitting on around a quarter of a million dollars. It’ll be interesting to see who and what they eventually spend it on. Given their big dollar contributors we could probably make a good guess. For now the PAC goes nowhere and does nothing.
