In the Robert Mapplethorpe gallery of New York's Guggenheim Museum actor, Matt Smith has studied the artist's work. "He was a steam train in New York. He just had this ferocious talent and capacity for life and amazing work ethic," Smith said. "I like the fact that he was, how to phrase this, not hugely likeable in some instances. You know? Quite singular and uncompromising. Cruel perhaps at times." The actor seems to be on a run of playing real people, something Smith can't exactly explain. He does see a similarity between Mapplethorpe and Prince Philip. "He's kind of similar to Robert [Mapplethorpe] in many ways 'cause he just don't give a flying what's it about anything. 'I'm 97. I'm gonna drive. Why not?'" Smith said. "Phillip, I think quite famously, someone asked him if he watched 'The Crown.' He said, 'don't be ridiculous.'" "The Crown" would introduce him to an even broader audience, but at first he was reluctant to play the part of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke … [Read more...] about Matt Smith talks Robert Mapplethorpe and why he loves Prince Philip

She speak-um with forked tongue one time too many, and now The Washington Post, of all places, has scalped her. The smoke signals went out last night — as early as 1986 she was lying on a Texas bar application that she was “American Indian.” Lieawatha admit-um she talk with forked tongue, only she use white-eye language, calling it “furthering confusion.” No confusion anywhere. You are an utter fraud. Fake Indian, you will have many moons to reflect on your serial lies. Never will you be great white father. Never live-um in white tee-pee. Heap big fraud since buffalo roam the plain, blue-eyed squaw lie about DNA, to make-um more wampum.

By Associated Press | PUBLISHED: February 3, 2019 at 10:41 pm | UPDATED: February 3, 2019 at 11:17 pm BOSTON — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to make sure the United States never uses nuclear weapons first. The Massachusetts Democrat has introduced a bill with Democratic U.S. Rep. Adam Smith of Washington that would make it the official policy of the United States not to use nuclear weapons first. The lawmakers say the United States currently retains the option to be the first to use nuclear weapons in a conflict, even in response to a non-nuclear attack. They said banning the use of nuclear weapons for first-strike purposes would “reduce the chances of a nuclear miscalculation.” Fellow Massachusetts Democratic U.S. Sen. Edward Markey and U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu, a California Democrat, have also sponsored a bill that would bar the president from launching a nuclear first strike without congressional approval. … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren: Ban US first strike nuclear weapons option
