See All The Fashion From The Red Carpet At The 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards

Hollywood had barely recovered from its Golden Globes-induced hangover when the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards kicked off on Sunday night.  

Stars arrived at the 25th annual ceremony at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica to celebrate achievements in film and television. The event, which was hosted by Taye Diggs for the second time, is all about empowering the voice of critics ― so what better time to sit home and judge all the red carpet looks from the comfort of your couch. 

This awards season has already us blessed with looks for the fashion dos and don’ts history books, including Kerry Washington in a bejeweled body harness, Billy Porter going full swan queen, Jennifer Lopez’s Christmas gift gown and Scarlett Johansson putting the red carpet to shame in her namesake color. 

So there are sure to be looks that we’re obsessed with from stars like Awkwafina, Saoirse Ronan, Cynthia Erivo, Charlize Theron and more as they arrive at the ceremony throughout the night. 

Check out all the red carpet looks worth seeing below.

US military’s Iran policy ‘not going to change overnight,’ Gen. Robert Scales says

Westlake Legal Group Scales- US military's Iran policy 'not going to change overnight,' Gen. Robert Scales says Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/middle-east fox-news/world/world-regions/iraq fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/americas-news-hq-weekend fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/middle-east fox-news/politics/defense/pentagon fox news fnc/media fnc d792fe59-f7ef-5bd0-973c-7896c9bc2566 article

Retired U.S. Army Major General Robert Scales reacted Sunday to the protests that had erupted in Iran after the rogue nation admitted it shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane killing all 176 people on board, saying America’s military policy in the country “is not going to change overnight.”

“Now that the nuclear deal is off the table, the Trump administration can talk directly to the Iranian people and say that we’re with the people, not with the ayatollah,” Scales said on “America’s News HQ.”

“The other thing I think that’s important here is that Trump’s strategy is principally economic rather than military.”

“By squeezing them economically with the sanctions, they also add that additional pressure that stresses the day-to-day lives of the Iranian people,” he continued. “This is a long game focused on fomenting revolution.”

President Trump tweeted a message of support to the protesters on Saturday, in both Farsi and English, promising his administration would continue to stand with them in solidarity.

Scales said Trump had two choices.

“First is a covert information war used principally through social media,” the retired general explained, described as Washington making contact “periodically with protesters to try to encourage them and give them advice on what to do.”

TRUMP TWEETS SUPPORT OF IRANIAN ANTI-GOVERNMENT PROTESTERS AFTER UKRAINIAN PASSENGER PLANE SHOT DOWN

“Secondly is the covert military operations that haven’t let up at all in the past year and will likely continue,” he added. “And, of course, those are highly classified, but they tend to be very, very effective over the long term. This is not going to change overnight.”

Scales also weighed in shortly after new reports surfaced that four members of Iraq’s military were wounded Sunday in an attack by at least six rockets targeting an air base just north of Baghdad where American trainers have been present. Sunday’s attack came just days after Iran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles at two bases in Iraq housing U.S. forces, in response to the U.S.-ordered killing of top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

“We reassured our partners and allies in the region that we will stand up and defend our interests,” Defense Secretary Mark Esper told CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We do not expect any further attacks.”

When asked if there was a little hubris in saying more attacks from the Iranians or their proxies weren’t expected, Scales responded by saying, “Yeah, but this is small beer.”

The retired general said a local militia likely conducted Sunday’s attack. “This is a long way from resumption of the surrogate strategic campaign by the [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.] They’re back on their heels. With Soleimani dead, they’re going to have to find another moral leader of this movement and restart it. We’re going to have a period of pause while the Iranians try to get their act together.”

Fox News’ Leland Vittert and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Tom Homan responds to Illinois county releasing illegal immigrants with criminal records: ‘That’s just stupid’

Westlake Legal Group ap18018076601357 Tom Homan responds to Illinois county releasing illegal immigrants with criminal records: 'That's just stupid' Yael Halon fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/illinois fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/enforcement fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime/chicagos-crime-wave fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 8752e2a3-8a3f-5396-be4c-82e2206bfd50

Former acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] Thomas Homan fired back at leadership in Cook County, Illinois, for releasing illegal immigrants who’ve been accused of crimes, after ICE officials said the county denied more than 1,000 detainer requests in fiscal year 2019 alone.

“The violence in Chicago is unprecedented,” Homan said Sunday on “Fox & Friends.”

“You would think elected officials would want to do everything they can to make sure criminals are not on the streets. But, if you’re an illegal alien, you’re getting released to the street every day to re-offend.”

ICE CALLS OUT ILLINOIS COUNTY FOR RELEASING IMMIGRANTS INTO PUBLIC

Detainers are requests filed by ICE for local jurisdictions to keep in custody illegal immigrants who have been arrested on criminal charges and are believed to be “removable.”

Some 1,070 criminal aliens and immigration violators were released in Cook County despite active detainer requests, ICE officials announced Friday.

ANGEL MOM BLASTS SANCTUARY CITY POLICIES, CALLS FOR CA GOV. GAVIN NEWSOME’S REMOVAL

That number represented only the illegal immigrants whom U.S. Border Patrol had formerly arrested, Homan explained, noting the “thousands” more illegal immigrants in the prison system who had no records in Homeland Security databases.

“It’s more than a thousand,” he said. “When ICE puts a detainer on somebody it’s because we know he’s in your jail… in the country illegally. However, there are thousands of illegal aliens in jails in ‘sanctuary cities’ that weren’t arrested by the border patrol. There’s no record in DHS databases. That’s why we need records to the jails… because every year, ICE arrests thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens in jails that we don’t have records of.”

TOM HOMAN: PREPARE FOR ‘OUT OF CONTROL’ BORDER IF DEM WINS 2020

In its statement Friday, ICE pointed to the releases of a South African national who was accused of indecent exposure and a Nicaraguan national who was arrested for domestic violence.

ICE also noted that the county may already have released Mexican and Jordanian citizens facing charges including aggravated domestic battery, strangulation and recklessly discharging a firearm.

“Because ICE does not have access to standard Illinois law enforcement databases, it’s difficult to accurately account for all the aliens who have been arrested, released and committed additional crimes,” said Henry Lucero, an ICE official.

“There is no justification,” Homan said. “Releasing a public safety threat back into the public to re-offend when you can turn them over to ICE legally, that’s just stupid.”

The county did not comment to Fox News other than referencing two Chicago Tribune stories providing “relevant context.”

Cook County, which includes Chicago, previously had come under fire from then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who threatened to revoke federal funding over its sanctuary status.

“There’s no law that they can point to that will convince me or any other patriot that it’s right to release someone who is in the country illegally in violation of federal law and refuse to hand them over to a federal agency,” Homan reiterated.

“They wouldn’t do that to the FBI, [Drug Enforcement Administration]… only ICE. This is a political battle and there is no legal basis for it.”

Fox News’ Sam Dorman contributed to this report.

Trump’s Impeachment Team Takes Shape as Trial Looms

Westlake Legal Group 12dc-strategy1-facebookJumbo-v2 Trump’s Impeachment Team Takes Shape as Trial Looms United States Politics and Government Trump, Donald J Trump-Ukraine Whistle-Blower Complaint and Impeachment Inquiry Sekulow, Jay Alan impeachment Cipollone, Pat A

For weeks, President Trump’s advisers have been preparing for the eventuality of an impeachment trial in the Senate, a process that could begin as soon as Wednesday.

Some aspects of how Mr. Trump’s team will approach the trial have yet to be determined, including whether it will seek witnesses and how much time it will ask for to argue its case. But the basic configuration of the team defending the television-savvy president in a made-for-TV congressional event has been established.

The two constants will be Pat A. Cipollone, the White House counsel, and Jay Sekulow, who has been Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer since 2017. Both are expected to have speaking roles during the trial.

“The truth is, we’ve been prepared to proceed as soon as the articles were adopted,” Mr. Sekulow said on Sunday. “We’ve been prepared, we are prepared and we will be prepared for any contingencies.”

This will be the first outing by Mr. Trump’s team during the impeachment process after the White House chose not to mount a traditional defense during the House proceedings.

For Mr. Cipollone, the trial will be a high-profile appearance for the typically low-profile lawyer, who has stayed well below the radar during more than a year in the job. Mr. Sekulow, who hosts a daily radio show and is a frequent television commentator, is more accustomed to being in the public eye.

There will be other lawyers involved, primarily Mr. Cipollone’s two top deputies, Patrick F. Philbin and Michael M. Purpura, two people familiar with the plans said. Neither was authorized to speak publicly about the formation of the president’s defense.

Others may have discreet roles with the team, including the famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz, whose appearances on television have impressed Mr. Trump, and other members of the White House counsel’s staff.

It remains undetermined whether three of Mr. Trump’s closest allies among House Republicans — Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio, Doug Collins of Georgia and John Ratcliffe of Texas — will play a role. They had been expected to, at Mr. Trump’s urging, until the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, advised against it, according to people close to the president.

Some close to Mr. Trump say that having Mr. Ratcliffe involved would be particularly helpful. The congressman helped lead the Republican defense in the House and has told people he is familiar with all the evidence that was presented.

Last week, Mr. Trump’s lawyers met at the White House with Stephen R. Castor, who served as the Republican counsel in the House impeachment hearings, according to people briefed on the discussions.

Mr. Castor was also at the White House before the final impeachment hearings, along with Republican members of the House, the people briefed on the discussions said. He did not meet privately with the president, but Mr. Trump wanted to thank him for his role in the hearings, they said.

Mr. Trump’s lawyers may also decide to expand the team, depending on how the trial unfolds.

The shaping of Mr. Trump’s defense team is playing out against a backdrop of contradicting signals from the president. On Sunday, Mr. Trump suggested that instead of holding a trial, the Senate should dismiss the House’s articles of impeachment that charge him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial based on the no evidence, no crime, read the transcripts, ‘no pressure’ Impeachment Hoax, rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have,” the president wrote on Twitter. “I agree!”

Hours earlier he seemed to endorse a trial, tweeting that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Representative Adam B. Schiff, the California Democrat and Intelligence Committee chairman who led the impeachment inquiry, should be called as witnesses.

Indeed, for Mr. Trump, who is eager to be cleared and is angered by the fact that the impeachment vote ever happened, there is still a desire to see witnesses called, according to people close to him.

But he has also told advisers that he would follow Mr. McConnell’s advice on the best way to proceed. Mr. McConnell has told colleagues that witnesses can only complicate matters, and that they open up an avenue of uncertainty.

Plane Crash Leaves Iranian Diaspora in Canada Grief-Stricken

Westlake Legal Group 10iran-canada-victims-facebookJumbo Plane Crash Leaves Iranian Diaspora in Canada Grief-Stricken University of Alberta Iran Edmonton (Alberta) Deaths (Fatalities) Canada

EDMONTON, Alberta — The fume hoods in the lab set up by Saba Saadat were silent on Friday, its computers and microscopes switched off. Sobs occasionally punctuated the silence.

Prof. Meghan Riddell, the leader of the cell biology lab, comforted a weeping student while two teary-eyed technicians stood by. Ms. Saadat, a biology student, had been one of the most promising students at the University of Alberta.

“She was a Ph.D. disguised as an undergraduate,” said Professor Riddell, herself in tears. “That girl could think.”

Ms. Saadat was among the 176 people who died when a flight leaving the Iranian capital, Tehran, bound for Ukraine crashed on Wednesday. Also killed were her sister, a recent graduate in psychology who was heading to graduate school, and their mother, an obstetrician and gynecologist. In all, 57 Canadians died and a number of other victims appear to have been Iranian students studying in Canada.

Although the crash has spread grief throughout the Iranian diaspora in Canada, the tragedy has disproportionately struck the city of Edmonton, capital of the oil-rich province of Alberta. About 27 residents of Edmonton were on board the airliner, and at least 10 of them were, like Ms. Saadat, students or faculty at the University of Alberta.

The anguish has only been deepened by evidence that it was an Iranian missile that brought down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752.

Reminders of the losses were everywhere as the university’s sports center was readied for a public memorial service on Sunday.

Flowers, chocolates, photographs and candles were set outside the offices of the faculty members who perished, in departments where students studied and on the steps of Alberta’s sandstone legislature.

Flags have been lowered throughout the city of just under one million people. A railway bridge spanning a deep river valley that defines Edmonton geographically has been lit with red and white lights — the colors of the Canadian flag — in memorial.

In this multicultural nation, Iranians are comparative newcomers: Most arrived after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Today, by some counts, Canada has the third-largest number of expatriate Iranians in the world and its universities are a top destination for Iranian graduate students.

Iranian-Canadians are an accomplished group academically and professionally. In Edmonton, as across Canada, they include physicians, dentists, engineers and academics.

“It’s a gift to Canada, and you know what, it’s the regime’s loss in Iran,” said Payman Parseyan, the past president of the Iranian Heritage Society of Edmonton, speaking of the contributions the immigrants have made to Canada. “They’ve suppressed the people, the people are upset with the government and so they leave. The best minds learn to get out.”

Mr. Parseyan, a 30-year-old former municipal police officer who now inspects oil and gas line construction, refers to himself as Persian rather than Iranian to distance himself from the government in power in his homeland.

His parents, both geologists, brought Mr. Parseyan to Canada when he was 8, along with his two siblings. After briefly staying with distant relatives in Toronto, they took a four-day train trip to Edmonton, a city about which they knew nothing.

He acknowledged that for most Iranians looking to leave, Canada is a second choice after the United States as the preferred destination. The frigid weather, particularly in Edmonton, can be a deterrent.

Perhaps in reaction to the theocracy that rules Iran, Mr. Parseyan said that most Iranians in Edmonton are secular. The heritage society, a volunteer group, generally brings them together around Iranian holidays as well as for Edmonton’s annual ethnic festival, a major event in a city of many nationalities.

In a suburban shopping center featuring food from Japan, Taiwan, India, Pakistan and Korea, Mahnuash Jannesar, the co-owner of the Persia Palace, a combined grocery and restaurant, said that as photos of the victims began appearing in the news media, she recognized about half of them as customers.

While she hadn’t been aware of the names of many of them before their deaths, she did know Pedram Mousavi and Mojgan Daneshmand, two regular customers who were professors of engineering and who died in the crash with their two children.

It was the loss of the students who came to her shop that most grieved Ms. Jannesar, she said.

“They came to Canada for a future; there is no future in Iran,” she said. “It’s so sad.”

At the silenced university lab, Professor Riddell said that Ms. Saadat was so knowledgeable and capable that she relied on her to supervise the work of graduate students who were passing through. Their last exchanges by email were mainly over Ms. Saadat’s application for medical school. Now, Professor Riddell is turning her attention to presenting a paper Ms. Saadat had planned to deliver to an academic conference next month.

“The data stays forever, and the data leads to the next project,” Professor Riddell said.

Reza Akbari, the current president of the heritage society, paused as he considered how some of the victims were like himself 15 years ago: teenagers or people in their early 20s leaving Iran to study in Canada and begin a new life.

His voice rose with anger when he recalled seeing the first passenger lists and finding the names of friends on it. Crying for what he said was the first time since the news of the plane’s destruction, he contrasted Iran’s lack of any statement of sympathy for the victims with the national outpouring of consolation from Canadians.

“There hasn’t been a single condolence sent or acknowledgment, a single message from any government officials of Iran. It’s like: come on, guys. These are people,” said Mr. Akbari, who is a sales representative for Diageo, the spirits and beer conglomerate.

“After this incident happened,” he added, “the amount of support we’ve seen from Canada versus our motherland is something collectively as Canadians we can be proud of. As an Iranian, I’m sad.”

Prince William ‘let down,’ Duchess Kate ‘incredibly hurt’ by Harry stepping down, report says

Westlake Legal Group William-Kate-sad Prince William 'let down,' Duchess Kate 'incredibly hurt' by Harry stepping down, report says Nate Day fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/world/personalities/will fox-news/world/personalities/queen fox-news/world/personalities/kate fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/topic/royals fox-news/person/prince-harry fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a67df76a-668c-5109-b0cc-6ae315c7c427

It appears that the Queen isn’t the only one “disappointed” with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to “step back” from their royal duties.

A source told Us Weekly that 37-year-old Prince William, heir to the throne, and his wife Duchess Kate were hurt by the announcement as well.

“William’s done everything in his power to help his brother over the years and feels totally let down by his ‘reckless’ and ‘selfish’ actions,” the source said. “The way he sees it, Harry’s thrown all the good advice he gave him back in his face.”

PRINCE HARRY MAY HAVE LANDED MEGHAN MARKLE DISNEY VOICEOVER JOB

Kate, 38, reportedly was left with hurt feelings as well.

“When Harry was feeling low or had problems, William was always there for him, as was Kate,” the insider said. “Kate’s incredibly hurt too. She acted as a mentor to Harry before Meghan came into the picture and hates seeing her husband so upset.”

The source added that the Queen was “urging” the brothers to present a united front.

“Right now, William and Harry refuse to make amends — they’re both being stubborn, especially Harry,” the source added.

AFTER PRINCE HARRY-MEGHAN MARKLE DECISION, BUCKINGHAM PALACE AIDE HAS ‘NEVER SEEN’ MONARCHY IN SUCH PERIL

William recently commented on the matter, reportedly telling a friend, “I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that anymore… I’m sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we’re all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team.”

William and Harry are both expected to attend a meeting on Monday called by the Queen, their grandmother. The princes’ father, Prince Charles, is also set to appear.

The meeting is said to be an opportunity for the family to “talk things through.”

US soldiers killed in Afghanistan roadside bomb blast identified

Military officials identified the two U.S. service members supporting Operation Freedom’s Sentinel who were killed Saturday after an improvised explosive device (IED) hit their vehicle in southern Afghanistan.

The Pentagon announced in a statement that the two soldiers killed were 29-year-old Staff Sgt. Ian P. McLaughlin of Newport News, Virginia; and 21-year-old Pfc. Miguel A. Villalon of Joliet, Illinois.

Both soldiers were conducting operations as part of NATO’s Resolute Support Mission.

“When our nation called for its best airborne combat engineers to deploy into harm’s way, Staff Sgt. McLaughlin and Pfc. Villalon answered without hesitation. They lived their motto, ‘Essayons,’ and embodied the values of the All-American engineer,” Col. Art Sellers, commander of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, said in a statement. “Their loved ones are now surrounded by a caring community offering comfort and assistance through this difficult time.”

Maj. Gen. James Mingus, the 82nd Airborne Division Commander, added in a statement, “These paratroopers represent the very best of our nation and our army. Three-time volunteers, they went when our nation called and paid the ultimate sacrifice. They will be honored, mourned, but never forgotten and we are committed to taking care of their families for life.”

The Taliban have controlled or held sway over roughly half of Afghanistan. The militants have continued to stage near-daily attacks targeting Afghan and U.S. forces, even as they’ve held peace talks with the U.S.

Scores of Afghan civilians also have been killed in the crossfire or by roadside bombs planted by militants.

The U.S. and Taliban, whose government had harbored Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden, have been in on-again, off-again negotiations to bring an end to 18 years of fighting, said to be the longest war in American history.

Prince William ‘let down,’ Duchess Kate ‘incredibly hurt’ by Harry stepping down, report says

It appears that the Queen isn’t the only one “disappointed” with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to “step back” from their royal duties.

A source told Us Weekly that 37-year-old Prince William, heir to the throne, and his wife Duchess Kate were hurt by the announcement as well.

“William’s done everything in his power to help his brother over the years and feels totally let down by his ‘reckless’ and ‘selfish’ actions,” the source said. “The way he sees it, Harry’s thrown all the good advice he gave him back in his face.”

PRINCE HARRY MAY HAVE LANDED MEGHAN MARKLE DISNEY VOICEOVER JOB

Kate, 38, reportedly was left with hurt feelings as well.

“When Harry was feeling low or had problems, William was always there for him, as was Kate,” the insider said. “Kate’s incredibly hurt too. She acted as a mentor to Harry before Meghan came into the picture and hates seeing her husband so upset.”

The source added that the Queen was “urging” the brothers to present a united front.

“Right now, William and Harry refuse to make amends — they’re both being stubborn, especially Harry,” the source added.

AFTER PRINCE HARRY-MEGHAN MARKLE DECISION, BUCKINGHAM PALACE AIDE HAS ‘NEVER SEEN’ MONARCHY IN SUCH PERIL

William recently commented on the matter, reportedly telling a friend, “I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that anymore… I’m sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we’re all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team.”

William and Harry are both expected to attend a meeting on Monday called by the Queen, their grandmother. The princes’ father, Prince Charles, is also set to appear.

The meeting is said to be an opportunity for the family to “talk things through.”

Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to a first-half lead over the Houston Texans after being down 24 points in the second quarter.

Mahomes threw four touchdown passes in the second quarter and helped the Chiefs to a 28-24 lead at the half. The 52 points scored between both teams in the first half were the most in a playoff game in NFL history.

Mahomes also was the second quarterback to throw four touchdowns in a quarter — joining Doug Williams who did it for the Washington Redskins in Super Bowl XXII.

The Texans were rolling in the first half after a few miscues from the Chiefs on offense.

First, Deshaun Watson fired a 54-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Kenny Stills to begin in the scoring onslaught. The Texans went up 14-0 after a blocked punt and a scoop and score from cornerback Lonnie Johnson Jr.

Houston was up 21-0 when Watson threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end Daniel Fells after a Chiefs muffed punt. The Texans had plenty of momentum on their side until the second quarter.

Kansas City started its run with a 4-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to running back Damien Williams. Next, Mahomes found Travis Kelce for a 5-yard touchdown catch to bring the Chiefs within 10 points. Kelce would catch two more touchdown passes in the second quarter and give Kansas City the lead going into the half.
