What’s next on non­pro­lif­er­a­tion and in­ter­na­tion­al se­cur­ity, in Wash­ing­ton and around the globe.

— Ju­ly 20: A six-month deal between six world powers and Ir­an, aimed at trad­ing sanc­tions re­lief for pro­gress in curb­ing Tehran’s atom­ic arms-rel­ev­ant activ­it­ies, ex­pires. Pro­spects for ex­tend­ing the in­ter­im pact ap­pear likely in an ef­fort to strike a per­man­ent agree­ment.

— Ju­ly 21: The At­lantic Coun­cil hosts Luk­man Faily, Ir­aq’s am­bas­sad­or to the United States, for a dis­cus­sion in Wash­ing­ton titled, “The En­emy of My En­emy: An Un­easy Co­ali­tion and the Threat of IS­IS.”

— Ju­ly 21: Al­tern­at­ively, vis­it the In­sti­tute for Gulf Af­fairs for a sim­il­arly themed con­fer­ence, also in Wash­ing­ton, fea­tur­ing an as­sort­ment of is­sue ex­perts on the “ca­liphate” de­clared by the Is­lam­ic State of Ir­aq and Syr­ia, and re­gion­al rami­fic­a­tions of the group’s rise.

— Ju­ly 21: For­eign-policy spe­cial­ists will be on hand at a Woo­drow Wilson Cen­ter-or­gan­ized event in Wash­ing­ton on the latest re­gard­ing in­ter­na­tion­al ne­go­ti­ations over Ir­an’s nuc­le­ar pro­gram. The event comes one day after the ex­pir­a­tion date of an in­ter­im deal, which al­lowed for sanc­tions to be eased.

— Ju­ly 23: The House Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee holds a hear­ing head­lined, “U.S. Na­tion­al Mis­sile De­fense and the Grow­ing Threat: Is a ‘Lim­ited De­fense’ Enough?” Vari­ous in­de­pend­ent is­sue ex­perts are slated to testi­fy. The term “lim­ited” in the hear­ing title al­ludes to the years-old mod­us op­erandi of the De­fense De­part­ment’s mult­i­bil­lion-dol­lar mis­sile de­fense en­ter­prise, which of­fi­cially aims to provide pro­tec­tion against at­tacks with cer­tain caveats.

— Ju­ly 24: The Sen­ate Com­mit­tee on En­ergy and Nat­ur­al Re­sources ques­tions Eliza­beth Sher­wood-Ran­dall, nom­in­ee for the job of deputy en­ergy sec­ret­ary.

— Ju­ly 24: Na­tion­al De­fense Uni­versity schol­ars John Caves and Seth Carus are fea­tured at an off-the-re­cord talk in Wash­ing­ton at the school’s Fort McNair cam­pus. “The Fu­ture of WMD in 2030” is the event’s title. Both speak­ers are on the roster of the NDU Cen­ter for the Study of Weapons of Mass De­struc­tion.

— Ju­ly 24: The Na­tion­al Academies of Sci­ences of­fi­cially un­veil a re­port on les­sons learned from the Fukushi­ma dis­aster and ideas for im­prov­ing the safety of U.S. nuc­le­ar power plants.

Perhaps Donald Trump can take a plebiscite to solve this whole messy immigration thing. At a Fox News town hall with Sean Hannity last night, Trump essentially admitted he's "stumped," turning to the audience and asking: “Can we go through a process or do you think they have to get out? Tell me, I mean, I don’t know, you tell me.”

WHY WE CARE

Donald Trump "nearly quintupled the monthly rent his presidential campaign pays for its headquarters at Trump Tower to $169,758 in July, when he was raising funds from donors, compared with March, when he was self-funding his campaign." A campaign spokesman "said the increased office space was needed to accommodate an anticipated increase in employees," but the campaign's paid staff has actually dipped by about 25 since March. The campaign has also paid his golf courses and restaurants about $260,000 since mid-May.

He told the New York Times: “I’m not hiding the fact that I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States. I never claimed to be a journalist.”
