Violence overwhelms Cairo. Should the administration have stated stronger positions on aid and military in Egypt? More information from Edward Snowden reveals that the NSA broke its own surveillance rules thousands of times. But how much information is it culling? Should the leaks continue?

The Republican Party convenes in Boston and Chris Christie makes a case for 2016. The RNC declares that the planned biopics of Hillary Clinton should count as advertising for her, and other candidates will need equal time on NBC and CNN.

Scheer talks about his “I Like Ike” button, and the New York Times adopts his mantra of No Banker Left Behind. The Justice Department blocks a merger between American Airlines and US Airways.

Scheer is joined this week by host Matt Miller and Juleanna Glover, political consultant and lobbyist and founder of the Ashcroft Group who provides the perspective from the right.
