  • Britain’s new prime minister, Boris Johnson, was traveling Europe this week, testing the waters with Germany and France about their willingness to work out a new Brexit deal.
  • Russia managed to convince seven of its allies—some of whom are at odds with one another—to join in large military drills next month, a sign of Russia’s leadership within Asia.
  • Italy’s prime minister resigned, opening the door for populist leader Matteo Salvini. Will establishment politicians be able to cobble together a coalition to keep the popular Catholic strongman out of office?
  • We also talk about Russia covertly expanding its borders in Georgia, the likelihood of Iran gaining a permanent presence in Yemen, Donald Trump’s desire to lower interest rates even further, and more and more Americans saying God had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of man.
