A 5 Million Dollar Crown And 90 Of The Most Beautiful Women In The World, The MISS Universe 2019 Pageant Finally Takes Over Atlanta

(Atlanta, Ga) – Atlanta, GA has the international spotlight this weekend as the #MISSUNIVERSE2019 Pageant takes over the city! Tyler Perry Studios will host the live broadcast on Sunday, Dec. 8th at 7p airing on FOX, but the preliminary round got underway in downtown Atlanta.

Fans from all over the world watched 90 contestants from every corner of the globe compete in both the swimsuit and gown competition each representing her country and displaying her beauty in a unique way.

It’s a phenomenal group of women with some already advanced in their careers, speaking 4 and 5 different languages while others are barely 18 and in college.  Everyone has a favorite, but all eyes seem to be on USA – Cheslie Kryst who presumably took the swimsuit round with her very defined six pack, Gazini Ganados – Philippines who looked like a gold statue in her gown, Ako Kamo – Japan and Zozibini Tunzi – South Africa who were both draped in culturally inspired gowns and Maëva Coucke – MISS France.

Minus a few falls and a 20-second sweep break the preliminary round went on without a hitch. The ladies, however, recovered nicely under the support of the crowd.

The Preliminary Round was hosted by the current MISS UNIVERSE Catriona Gray but the main event will see five-time Emmy® Award winner, and one of television’s favorite entertainers, Steve Harvey back once again to host.

Social media personality, model and Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo alongside actress and Miss Teen USA 1998 Vanessa Lachey will appear together as backstage hosts to take viewers behind-the-scenes interacting with the women participating in the competition. Musical guest Ally Brooke performs.

Biden: Running To Help Restore Soul Of Nation

(Pittsburgh, PA-AP) — Former Vice President Joe Biden says he is running for president to help restore the soul of the nation. During a rally in Pittsburgh today, the Democratic presidential candidate called the middle class the backbone of America. Biden said the middle class built the U.S. The former VP chose a union hall to hold his first rally since announcing his White House bid last week. He called himself a union man and said union busting must stop. He said many workers feel powerless.

Biden noted that the stock market is roaring but said many hard working people are just not feeling it. Biden was President Obama’s VP for eight years. He decided against a White House run in 2016 after the death of his son Beau, who lost a long struggle with brain cancer.

Russian Spies Have 72 Hours To Leave Country As President Obama Retaliates Against Russia For Election Tampering

(SL) – White House reps are keeping mm on the what else President Obama plans to do after Congress ruled that Russia did in fact tamper with the United State’s Presidential Election. The only person who isn’t buying it, of course, is Donald Trump who believes we she just….’get on with our lives.’

The Daily Mail reports, President Obama launched a Cold War strike on the Kremlin and its spies on Thursday, accusing them of hacking the presidential election on orders from Vladimir Putin.

He ordered 35 Russian intelligence operatives to leave the country as part of sanctions ordered for what he said where the country’s attempts to ‘interfere with democratic governance’ and harassment of U.S. diplomatic officials in Russia.

And he launched a scathing attack on Putin’s Kremlin in an official announcement of sanctions over allegations of hacking in the run-up to the presidential elections.Obama all but named the Russian strongman in his statement – saying hacking was ‘ordered at the highest level’.

That prompted an angry response from the Kremlin which promised an ‘appropriate’ retaliation – while its London embassy tweeted a picture mocking him as a ‘lame duck’. Donald Trump took four hours to react – and did not say if he had been briefed in advance.’It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,’ he said in a statement.landscape-1450461032-putin-index ‘Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.’

The sanctions came after the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton’s secrets were published, mostly by Wikileaks, in a series of releases before Hillary Clinton’s election defeat.

 These data theft and disclosure activities could only have been directed by the highest levels of the Russian government.

The White House says Russia hacked the emails, and Clinton has claimed Putin acted out because of a ‘personal beef.’

Wikileaks has denied Moscow was the source.

‘This is not in question. There’s no debate within the U.S. administration about the fact,’ a senior U.S. official said Thursday, ‘that Russia interfered in our democratic election. We’ve established that clearly to our satisfaction.

Madonna Takes Legal Action To Force Son To Live With Her

(SL) – Singer Madonna is caught in the middle of a major legal battle over her 15-year old son.  The Queen of 80’s Pop appeared in a Manhattan courtroom to ask a judge to force her ex-husband Guy Ritchie to return their son Rocco  to the US.  There’s only one problem.  Rocco doesn’t want to live in New York with Madonna. The teenager wants to remain in London with his father and stepmother.

2F9738BF00000578-3372220-image-a-67_1450896732296.jpgRitchie’s attorney, Eric Buckley, told Judge Kaplan that Rocco has made it clear that he doesn’t want to return to the states. When asked by the Judge if Ritchie has prevented his some from returning, Buckley reportedly responded by saying, “Effectively, Yes.”

Judge Kaplan ruled that Rocco must return to the states and have a conversation with Madonna, if he wants to live in London with his father.  I personally, think it’s a waste of time and just prolonging the inevitable.  Clearly, Rocco is at that age where legally he can decide which parent he wants to reside with and most importantly he’s almost an adult!
