Psaki’s double-feature of immaturity would be appalling but for the fact that her boss John Kerry, whom Dennis Miller once referred to as an Easter Island statue in a suit, managed to trump her gaffe by the end of the weekend. Kerry was caught on a hot mic talking with a subordinate about Israel’s escalation against Hamas in advance of a Sunday show appearance with Fox News’s Chris Wallace:” – Scott McKay/American Spectator

“Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer.” – NY Post

Airfare is getting more expensive. The Transportation Security Administration is raising security fees. Fox News has a report on it.

“In the wake of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Obama has been the nation’s forensic-investigator-in-chief. He has summoned all the moral authority of his office to call for the professional handling of the wreckage.” – Rich Lowry/National Review

Gov. Rick Perry, R-Tex., will send around 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas border under his gubernatorial authorities to help the Texas Department of Public Safety deal with the illegal immigration crisis.

“This sheds some light on why the administration is going to seek an en banc hearing at the stacked DC circuit. One thing the Supreme Court takes into consideration when deciding to take cases is whether or not there’s a split in how various circuits are treating an issue.

“It goes without saying that nobody expects Europe to respond militarily to Russia. But last week, the EU again failed to follow the American lead and enact sanctions that could hit Putin where it matters, thereby deterring Russia’s objectives in Ukraine without force. Instead, European leaders again opted for a set of palliative measures, which Putin did not even bother to mention in his bitter statement attacking the United States.
