Here's the log file from a job that appears to be suspended, and I cannot
resume it.
Short of removing the job and resubmitting it, is there another way to
force it to restart or continue?

The story here is your job landed on a machine that is configured to suspend jobs running on that machine when some condition becomes true (e.g. activity on the keyboard or increased non-condor load average) and then unsuspend or restart the job after X amount of time. This sort of policy is common when running jobs on non-dedicated desktop machines.

As a user submitting jobs, if you never want your jobs to suspend, you're only recourse is to add a requirement to your submit file to avoid machines with such a policy (if there are any such machines in your pool).

If you are also the administrator of the machines in your pool, you could put
into your condor_config file...
