“The Kingdom freely takes American foreign aid, relies upon Washington to safeguard it militarily and claims they are a modern state that respects the rule of law. No one, not even Tamimi, denies her role in perpetrating these mass bombings that killed and injured U.S. citizens,” contended Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of the Israeli law firm Shurat HaDin, which represents some of the Sbarro bombing victims. “Just as the Trump administration is pressing every ally from Europe to Canada to NATO to start to fulfill obligations, Jordan must be forcefully pressed and compelled.” … [Read more...] about Most wanted female terrorist lives in freedom in Jordan despite extradition request for bombing that killed Americans

And when you walk into work on Wednesday, leaving your gloves and helmet on as you stroll through the workplace so everyone can see you biked to work (this is 100% my move), remember a kind thought for the people who actually made this smug act possible. Especially if they died in the first quarter of the 20th century. … [Read more...] about Market Street is car-free: A salute to the people who started this fight
One of the odder phenomena in the fraught recent history of American conservatism has been the strong overlap on the political right of the pre-2016 intellectual movement known as “reform conservatism” (and its proponents, “reformicons”) and the ranks of outspoken conservative critics of Donald J. Trump. It’s odd because if you ignore all of the terrifying optics associated with the 45th president, in some respects he was the answer — if perhaps a funhouse-mirror kind of answer — to the questions reformicons like Ross Douthat, Reihan Salam, and David Frum were asking before his arrival on the scene.

I commented on this strange convergence even as Trump was beginning to move toward the Republican … [Read more...] about Trump’s ‘Love It Or Leave It’ Jingoism Was Predictable All Along
Don't carry your Social Security card in your wallet, and never give out your Social Security number or other sensitive personal information (including your birthdate, bank account and credit card numbers) just because someone asks. Always review the monthly statements for your bank account and your credit cards, and be on the lookout for any transactions you didn't make. If you receive paper statements, be sure to shred those, as well as any credit card offers or other documents that might be valuable finds for identity thieves rummaging through your trash. Whenever you're on a public Wi-Fi, be sure to use a virtual private network, or VPN, which will give you a layer of security. Change your passwords periodically, and use complicated ones that an identity thief would never guess. (Did you know a survey found 17% of people were still using "123456" in 2016? Come on!) Take advantage of free credit freezes available from the major credit bureaus Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. … [Read more...] about What’s the Risk to Your Identity in Plymouth-Whitemarsh?
Much as I hate to say it, this morning’s hearing was a disaster. Far from breathing life into his damning report, the tired Robert Mueller sucked the life out of it. The effort to save democracy and the rule of law from this lawless president has been set back, not advanced. … [Read more...] about Live Updates: Robert Mueller Testifies on Trump-Russia Report Findings
