Miley Cyrus features Liam Hemsworth in ‘decade video’ on Instagram, acknowledges split

Miley Cyrus’ year-end Instagram post features a particularly eyebrow-raising addition.

On New Year’s Day, the “Wrecking Ball” singer shared a 10-minute “Decade Video” to take viewers through the highs and lows of her tumultuous career.

“10 Years in 10 minutes #NewYearStartsNow,” she captioned the video.

MILEY CYRUS PROMOTES ‘SELF LOVE/CARE’ AMID LIAM HEMSWORTH DIVORCE FINALIZATION

Miley starts the video off with a scene from Hannah Montana, in which she removes the iconic blonde wig and comes clean about her identity — indicative of her change in person from a Disney star to the cultural icon she is today.

Within the first 10 seconds of the video, Liam Hemsworth appears through a scene from the film “The Last Song” — the movie in which Miley and Hemsworth initially met.

MILEY CYRUS AND CODY SIMPSON SPEND FIRST CHRISTMAS TOGETHER

The video continues showcasing the many milestones Miley hit throughout the decade. Clips include her performing with Madonna, Billy Joel, Elton John and Dolly Parton, as well as her giving impassioned speeches, before ultimately returning to the topic of Hemsworth toward the end.

The 27-year-old ends her video showing a news report of the two agreeing to get married after their 10-year on-and-off relationship and then, a few seconds later, a report of them separating.

Wake up, Republicans. Your party stands for all the wrong things now.

Westlake Legal Group r8xA6q9Tkb12Bkgxx3YLZhO43cKvyLLS5zlO9oLELLk Wake up, Republicans. Your party stands for all the wrong things now. r/politics

It’s important to remember that Conservatism, as a political ideology (and this isn’t true in other contexts), was created in response to the French Revolution to protect the wealth and power of aristocrats and the existence of the Monarchy (Go read your Burke). All ideologies in the conservatism cluster believe that a strong social hierarchy is humanity’s natural state and will work to maintain or create their idealized social hierarchy. The differences between lay in who the place at the top of the hierarchy:

Neo-liberal conservatives use wealth to determine position in the hierarchy. Remember that when we “vote” with our dollars, people with more dollars get more votes. It also lets them shift numerous political issues into the economic space, a sleight of hand which hides how they policies strip rights away from people. Believing the some people don’t deserve food or shelter seems less abhorrent when you say it as “those people need to take personal responsibility for how they wasted their money”.

Troys use blood-right to determine position in the hierarchy. If you were born an aristocrat, you are innately better than anyone else. When the only rich people are aristocrats, this is functionally identical to Neo-liberalism and the problem of inherited wealth in a capitalism system often makes this happen.

Social conservatives use religious observance to determine position in the hierarchy. This is why social conservatives of many different faiths actual act in extremely similar ways. Compare radical Islam with extreme right-wing Christians. Both advocate and perform violence against those they feel violate their “moral” standards.

Fascists use racial identities to determine position in the hierarchy. Note that since “race” is an artificial social construction, it is quite possible to construct a racial identity around a national identity. This is how “American” becomes a code word for “White” and the idea that non-white Americans are from somewhere else even if they were born in America.

Misogynists use gender to determine position in the hierarchy and Homo- & Trans-phobes use sexual-identity to determine position in the hierarchy.

A party without a governing theory, a higher purpose or a clear moral direction is nothing more than a cartel, a syndicate that exists only to advance itself. There is no organized, coherent purpose other than the acquisition and maintenance of power.

The party’s governing theory has always been the acquisition and maintenance of power for the right people. The Trump Era is about drop that pretense that it was every about anything else. What policies does that have that have not been advocated by Republicans before?

Josef Stalin’s $2.8 million armored limo stolen in Moscow heist

An armored limousine that once belonged to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin was stolen from a Moscow garage last Friday, but quickly recovered.

The unusual heist took place in the north part of the city, where a group of six bandits broke into the storage facility and towed the 9,200-pound sedan away as a camera recorded the crime, The Drive reported.

The 1949s ZIS-115 was built to withstand shots from a 7.62mm rifle as well as grenades exploding underneath it.

The luxurious limo reportedly belongs to the security chief for Ukranian construction magnate Ruslan Tarpan and was found on Saturday in another garage in the city, RT reported. It is not known if the thieves ditched it or planned to return to move it again. No suspects have been named or apprehended as the investigation continues.

Trump Bet He Could Isolate Iran and Charm North Korea. It’s Not That Easy.

Westlake Legal Group 01dc-ASSESS-2-facebookJumbo Trump Bet He Could Isolate Iran and Charm North Korea. It’s Not That Easy. United States International Relations Trump, Donald J Rouhani, Hassan Nuclear Weapons North Korea Kim Jong-un Iran Diplomatic Service, Embassies and Consulates Arms Control and Limitation and Disarmament

President Trump entered the new year facing flare-ups of long-burning crises with two old adversaries — Iran and North Korea — which are directly challenging his claim to have reasserted American power around the world.

While the Iranian-backed attack on the United States Embassy in Baghdad seemed to be under control, it played to Mr. Trump’s longtime worry that American diplomats and troops in the Middle East are easy targets — and his longtime stance that the United States must pull back from the region.

In North Korea, Kim Jong-un’s declaration on Wednesday that the world would “witness a new strategic weapon” seemed to be the end of an 18-month experiment in which Mr. Trump believed his force of personality — and vague promises of economic development — would wipe away a problem that plagued the last twelve of his predecessors.

The timing of these new challenges is critical: Both the Iranians and the North Koreans seem to sense the vulnerability of a president under impeachment and facing re-election, even if they are often clumsy as they try to play those events to their advantage.

The protests in Iraq calmed on Wednesday, at least for now, and Mr. Kim has not yet lit off his latest “strategic weapon.” But the events of recent days have underscored how much bluster was behind Mr. Trump’s boast a year ago that Iran was “a very different nation” since he had broken its economy, and belied his famous tweet: “There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea.”

Today the most generous thing one could say about those statements is that they were wildly premature. Many foreign policy experts say he fundamentally misjudged the reactions of two major American adversaries. And neither seem to fear him — precisely the critique he leveled at Barack Obama back in the days when Mr. Trump declared America’s toughest national security challenges could be solved as soon as a president the world respected was in office.

The core problem may have been Mr. Trump’s conviction that economic incentives alone — choking off oil revenues in Tehran and the prospect of investment and glorious beach-front hotels in North Korea — would overcome all other national interests. He dismissed the depth of the Iran’s determination to re-establish itself as the most powerful force in the region, and Mr. Kim’s conviction that its nuclear arsenal is its only insurance policy to buoy one of the last family-controlled Stalinist regimes.

“After three years of no international crises,” Richard Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote on Tuesday, Mr. Trump is “facing one with Iran because he has rejected diplomacy and another with North Korea because he has asked too much of diplomacy.”

“In neither case has Trump embraced traditional diplomacy, putting forward a partial or interim pact in which a degree of restraint would be met with a degree of sanctions relief.”

Mr. Trump does not engage with such arguments, simply repeating his mantra that Iran will never be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons and that North Korea — which already has fuel for upward of 40, much of it produced on Mr. Trump’s watch — has committed to full denuclearization, even though that overstates Mr. Kim’s position.

His top national security officials, starting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, offer a somewhat more nuanced view, saying that over time Iran will realize it has no choice but to change its ways, and expressing optimism that “Chairman Kim will make the right decision and he’ll choose peace and prosperity over conflict and war.”

Increasingly, though, such lines sound like a hope, not a strategy. And that is Mr. Trump’s fundamental problem as he enters 2020: His diplomacy has not produced a comprehensive plan to gather the nation’s estranged allies into a concerted course of action.

The absence of a common approach is hurting the most in Iran. When Mr. Trump abandoned the 2015 nuclear deal — declaring it a “terrible” piece of Obama-era diplomacy because it did not create permanent restraints on Iran’s ability to produce nuclear fuel — his aides sounded confident that the Europeans, China and Russia would follow suit. They did not.

Europe has flailed in its efforts to counteract American sanctions against Iran, but has insisted that the deal remains in place, even though both Washington and Tehran are violating key aspects of it. Russia and China have taken the next step: Last week they opened joint naval exercises with Iran in the Gulf of Oman. The exercises were not militarily significant, and the three nations have plenty of differences. But to the Iranians, they symbolized having two nuclear-armed superpowers on their side.

Vice Admiral Gholamreza Tahani, a deputy commander for the Iranian navy, was quoted in the Financial Times declaring that “The most important achievement of these drills” was the message “that the Islamic Republic of Iran cannot be isolated.”

It is possible the Trump administration’s strategy will still bear fruit: Mr. Pompeo was doing everything he could in recent weeks to express support for Iranians who were mounting protests inside their own country. But the history of past protests — most notably in 2009 — offer little hope that they can threaten the government. Hundreds of protesters appear to have been killed by internal security forces this time.

Meanwhile, the Iranians have a fine sense that “maximum pressure” campaigns work in both directions. They are vulnerable to cutoffs in oil flows. But the United States is vulnerable to highly public attacks on troops and tankers. And the attack on the outer walls of the American embassy in Baghdad, even if short-lived, was clearly designed to send a shiver down the spine of Mr. Trump’s political aides, who remember well that a hostage crisis led to President Jimmy Carter’s re-election defeat forty years ago.

Mounting a strike and pulling back is a familiar technique from Iran in recent months, including its attacks on oil tankers, an American drone and Saudi oil facilities.

The Iranians have made clear what Mr. Trump needs to do to reopen negotiations: Essentially, return to the deal struck with Mr. Obama, largely by lifting sanctions Mr. Trump imposed starting in May 2018. There are signs Mr. Trump is eager to resume talks, including his effort to lure President Hassan Rouhani to the phone when the Iranian leader was in New York in September for United Nations meetings.

That diplomatic initiative will doubtless continue in secret. But the Iranians have found new leverage: the ability to turn anti-Iran protests in Iraq into protests against American troops there, complete with Iran’s signature “Death to America” street chants.

Mr. Trump returned to a well-known stance on Tuesday, emphasizing that he did not want a war but also warning Iran that if it started one, any conflict “wouldn’t last very long.”

North Korea is a harder problem because there Mr. Trump had a diplomatic process underway, one that was both bold and imaginative. By breaking the mold and agreeing to meet the North Korean leader face to face, the first for an American president since the end of the Korean War, he had the makings of a breakthrough.

But he made key mistakes. He failed to get a nuclear freeze agreement from the North in return for the meeting, meaning that the country’s nuclear and missile production churned along while the two old adversaries returned to their old stances.

And Mr. Trump’s team, internally divided, could not back itself out of the corner the president initially put them with his vow for no serious sanctions relief until the arsenal was disbanded. Mr. Trump did cancel joint military exercises with South Korea — over Pentagon objections — but that was not enough for Mr. Kim.

But perhaps Mr. Trump’s biggest miscalculation was over-relying on the personal rapport he built with Mr. Kim, and overinterpreting the commitments he received from the young, wily North Korean leader.

That continues. On his way to a New Year’s party at his Mar-a-Lago club on Tuesday night, the president focused on their relationship, as if Mr. Kim’s declaration that he was no longer bound by any commitment to cease missile and nuclear testing didn’t exist. “He likes me, I like him, we get along,” Mr. Trump said. “He’s representing his country, I’m representing my country. We have to do what we have to do.”

Then he misrepresented the agreement in Singapore, describing it as if it were a real-estate deal. “But he did sign a contract,” he said of the vague declaration of principles reached in Singapore in June 2018. In fact, it was not a contract, it had no binding force, and it referred to the “denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” That phrase means something very different in Pyongyang than it does in Washington: It means the North expects the United States to pull back its own nuclear-backed forces, including submarines and ships that can deliver such weapons to the peninsula.

So now Mr. Trump finds himself in roughly the same place his predecessors did: Awaiting a new missile test. It may be a solid-fuel, intercontinental missile, according to some experts like Vipin Narang, a nuclear expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to show that the North has finally mastered a weapon that can be rolled out and launched with little warning. And it may carry some kind of payload to demonstrate that the country now knows how to make a warhead that can withstand re-entry into the atmosphere, a difficult technology.

But buried in Mr. Kim’s New Years statement was a suggestion of what he really had in mind: talks with the United States about the “scope and depth” of the North’s nuclear force. That means he really isn’t interested in denuclearization at all. He’s interested in arms-control talks, like the United States conducted for decades with the Soviet Union, and then Russia. And arms control, of course, would achieve what Mr. Kim, his father and his grandfather all sought: that insurance policy for the family.

Four bowl games scheduled on New Year’s Day

Four bowl games will usher in the New Year.

Here’s a rundown of the games.

The Citrus Bowl – Orlando, Fla.

Nick Saban and Jim Harbaugh go head-to-head when Alabama meets Michigan in the Citrus Bowl. The Crimson Tide will try to win a bowl game for the fifth straight year and ensure a Top 10 ranking to end the season. Michigan is trying to avoid a fourth straight bowl loss. The Wolverines are seeking their fourth 10-win year in Harbaugh’s five seasons. The game will air on ABC.

The Outback Bowl – Tampa, Fla.

Minnesota’s high-powered offense, led by sophomore quarterback Tanner Morgan, goes against SEC defensive player of the year Derrick Brown and the Auburn defense in the Outback Bowl. Morgan has passed for nearly 3,000 yards and 28 touchdowns. No. 9 Auburn is the only team to have played five of the top-13 teams in the final CFP rankings. The last time No. 16 Minnesota ended the season in the AP Top 25 was 2003, when the Golden Gophers were 20th in the final poll after winning the Sun Bowl. The game will air on ESPN.

The Rose Bowl – Pasadena, Calif. 

Oregon faces Wisconsin in the 106th Rose Bowl. These schools met in the Granddaddy of Them All eight years ago and put on one of the most exciting games in this bowl’s long history. Both programs are stacked with elite offensive talent again. They’ve also got two of the best defenses in the country. Both schools fell just short of the College Football Playoff and they get a trip to Pasadena as a consolation prize. The game will air on ESPN.

The Sugar Bowl – New Orleans 

Baylor tries for its first 12-win season when the eighth-ranked Bears take on No. 5 Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Baylor was a 1-11 team just three seasons ago. Georgia has won at least 11 games in each of the past three seasons and is in the Sugar Bowl for a second straight year. For the Bulldogs, the Sugar Bowl has been a consolation prize after losing the SEC Championship game two seasons running. But Georgia players say they want to send seniors out as winners this time after last year’s Sugar Bowl loss to Texas. The game will air on ESPN.

Ron Meyer: Why Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign appears to be ‘cooked’

Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign appears to be “cooked,” political analyst Ron Meyer said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends.”

Explaining his bold prediction, Meyer pointed at the changes introduced to the way delegates are designated in the Democratic Party. He said the elimination of superdelegates and winner-take-all primary contests adds up to bad news for the former vice president, even though he now leads in national polls.

Meyer said in states where Biden is ahead he holds only small leads, meaning that candidates like Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren will also be picking up delegates there. He said once Warren or Sanders drop out of the race, their delegates will switch to support the other.

BIDEN SAYS ‘YES’ WHEN ASKED ABOUT SACRIFICING BLUE-COLLAR JOBS FOR CLEAN ENERGY

“If you look at Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, they’re right behind him in most of these states or beating him in [Iowa and New Hampshire]. So when you add up the two socialist candidates versus the one moderate candidate, they overtake him,” Meyer said.

“And so as these delegates amass, you’re going to see basically the left wing of the party is going to have more delegates at the end of the day. So when Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren drops out, those delegates will consolidate behind one candidate that’s not Joe Biden, and that spells trouble for him.

“I think he’s cooked,” he concluded.

Biden remains the preferred presidential candidate among Democratic primary voters, as a Fox News Poll released two weeks ago showed more voters think he is capable of beating President Trump.

In addition, more Democratic primary voters think Biden is “about right” on issues (64 percent) than Buttigieg (56 percent), Warren (53 percent), Sanders (49 percent), and Bloomberg (47 percent). Seventy-eight percent of Republicans say Trump’s positions are “about right.”

Running down the Democratic race: Biden leads with 30 percent, followed by Sanders at 20 percent. Warren returns to third with 13 percent, down from a high of 22 percent in October.

Listing his other 2020 political predictions, Meyer said he believes the USMCA trade deal will be passed and signed into law in the next three months, while a China trade deal will not pass in Congress.

He also said he believes Trump will win in 2020 based on the strong economy and anticipated Warren or Sanders will be the Democrats’ nominee.

When asked about how growing up in Encinitas impacted her, Ratajkowski stated, “I think one thing about the lifestyle we grew up with is in the summer you wake up and you don’t put on an outfit — you put on your swimsuit and you immediately go get supplies for a day at the beach. You end up spending twelve hours in your bathing suit; you go get burritos in your bathing suit.”

“I think it makes girls who grow up doing that develop this insane body confidence. You don’t even think about it,” she continued.
