Are the Taliban stupid? Why not wait until we leave for good?

Seriously, why wouldn't they wait to attack until after the US troops fully left? By taking cities now, they risk the US saying "never mind, we can't go just yet." I don't get them at all.

Cuomo impeachment probe nears its end as NY lawmakers give governor Aug. 13 deadline to submit evide

Source: CNBC

New York state lawmakers warned Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s lawyers on Thursday that the Assembly’s impeachment probe into various accusations against the governor is nearing an end and gave him until Aug. 13 to furnish any final evidence.

The request from attorneys for the Assembly Judiciary Committee came two days after a scathing, detailed report that said Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women.

“The Committee’s investigation is nearing completion and the Assembly will soon consider potential articles of impeachment against your client,” read the warning.

The Judiciary Committee launched its impeachment investigation in March, following initial accusations of sexual harassment made against the governor.

Manhattan, Westchester DAs request evidence from Cuomo sex harassment probe

Source: CNBC

The district attorneys for Manhattan and Westchester County asked New York Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday for evidence related to her office's bombshell report accusing Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.

Westchester DA Mimi Rocah, in a letter obtained by NBC News, told James she plans to conduct an inquiry into whether the alleged sexual misconduct by Cuomo that occurred in her jurisdiction was "criminal in nature."

A spokesperson for Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. told NBC later Wednesday that, "When our office learned yesterday that the Attorney General's investigation of the Governor's conduct was complete, our office contacted the Attorney General's Office to begin requesting investigative materials in their possession pertaining to incidents that occurred in Manhattan."

The 165-page report, the culmination of five months of investigation and 179 witness interviews, concluded that Cuomo violated federal and state laws. But that probe was not explicitly tied to any punishments for the governor.

So today is the primary in Ohio 11th (Nina Turner)...

Will we know tonight? Regardless of who you support, who do you think will win?

What are DU rules if hypothetically someone wins a primary that is too extreme?

DU rules state to support Democrats and never bash them, but what if someone extreme wins a Democratic primary somewhere? What is and isn't allowed? Do the same rules still apply? Are they loosened a little? Or should we just not talk about him or her if we have nothing nice to say?

We're going to have to extend unemployment benefits again

Bad enough people can be evicted now, but with Delta we especially need extended and enhanced UE.

Biden Hater's Banners That Town Called Obscene Can Stay Up, Court Rules

Source: NY Times

A New Jersey woman can leave up several banners that use what local officials called an obscenity to express her hostility toward President Joe Biden, a state court ruled Tuesday.

The ruling came after the woman, Andrea Dick of Roselle Park, enlisted the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey to fight a municipal judge’s order that she take the banners off a fence outside the house where she lives with her mother or face $250 a day in fines.

After the civil liberties group joined the case, Roselle Park officials backpedaled on their earlier demand that Dick take down the banners and effectively dropped the matter.

“I feel amazing,” Dick, 54, said after the Superior Court of New Jersey dismissed the case, which was brought against her mother, Patricia Dilascio, who owns the home where the banners have hung since the Memorial Day weekend.

Bear attack: rangers shoot killer grizzly in night vision ambush

Source: The Guardian

A grizzly bear that pulled a California woman from her tent and killed her has been fatally shot by wildlife officials, who used night-vision goggles to stake out a chicken coop it had also raided near the small Montana town of Ovando.

They shot the bear shortly after midnight on Friday when it approached a trap set near the coop about two miles from Ovando where 65-year-old Leah Davis Lokan of Chico, California, was killed on Tuesday, said Greg Lemon with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

Lokan, a nurse, was on a mountain biking trip. She and two companions were camping behind the Ovando post office when she was attacked.

The estimated 400-pound (181kg) bear awakened Lokan and her companions in a nearby tent about 3am on Tuesday, officials said. After the bear ran away, the campers removed food from their tents, secured it and went back to sleep, Montana wildlife officials said.
