Meet the World Expert on All Things: Tom Nichols

Original Article

Posted By: DynomiteThings, 9/4/2019 4:43:44 AM

Hello, I’m Tom Nichols. I have very fierce facial hair. I am a super-brain expert authority (™) on all things. You can find me in the Naval War College, USA Today, and in the dictionary, under the word “insufferable.” I am in fact an expert on all things, except the management of time, 100 hours of which I spend on Twitter each week unclogging my nose at you fools who voted for Trump, you fools who are reluctant to vote for Socialists, and you fools who consider it conservative to appoint conservative judges. Which I have wittily dubbed “muh judges” while deriding you weirdos who oppose abortion.

Hilarious. I have no idea who Tom Nichols is but I love a well-orchestrated dump-a-chump piece when it is so obviously well-deserved. Worth the read just for the “waffles for underpants” line. Thanks, OP!

He just described nearly every democrat in the country. The biggest ''World Expert on All Things'' are known as ''journalists'' and occupy high positions in places formally known as 'the unbiased media.' Don't believe me? Just ask them, they'll tell you about their wonderfulness.

After reading this article I still have no idea who Tom Nichols is. Is he one of the media's fake conservative talking-heads? Whoever he is, I'm so glad I no longer subsidize him and others like him via a cable subscription.

Dear Kyle: I hope you corrected the Knower of All Stuff of his slight error (Cranium means brain.) Tell him, ''Not so, KoAS, the cranium is the place where a brain is stored, if present.'' PS: You are funny enough to write for The Onion.

Tom Nichols is a devote "Never Trumper" who quit the Republican Party and became "independent" because Susan Collins voted for SCOTUS candidate Kavanaugh. Nuff said.

I haven't a clue who Tom Nichols is but his domain must be twitter. I have a Tom Nichols type friend I call him Mr. Know It All. Why on God's green earth does this person call me when he talks about everything, he won't shut up and corrects me if I say a word about any topic. His sounds like Tom Nichols spending hours doing nothing but filling his brain with nothings. Great smack down funny article.

Ouch, Tom be burned bad. I have no idea who he is because I would not be caught fully clothed watching MSNBC but Kyle obviously thinks the world of him and wants the rest of to appreciate him. All through Tom's comments I kept seeing the face of Barack Obama, anybody else? I would also say that Tom sounds like AOC but that is how she used to sound. Now that she and Chakrabarti have parted ways it's like she has lost a piece of her brain - or all of it. She has all but disappeared from the headlines.

Sorry, but I feel like I wasted 5 minutes that I could have been doing something constructive, to read this. Just my opinion.

Geraldo Rivera says that
AR-15 owners have ‘small penises’

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera accused AR-15 rifle owners of using the gun to compensate for small penis size. Responding to comedian Sarah Silverman's tweet that mocked hunters for possessing similar insecurities, Rivera said, "AR15 are the symptom of small penises." (tweet) Claiming "their products are used for their only intended purpose: to mimic military assault weapons to kill and maim people," Rivera had said earlier that companies manufacturing AR-15 rifles should be sued for damages, much like opioid makers and tobacco companies.
Trump kills the White House press
briefing, 50 years after it was born

The White House briefing room has many functions: a storage space for tripods and camera gear, a backdrop for visitor photos, a temporary workspace for journalists without a desk. What it is not, at least since March 11, is a venue for President Trump’s press secretary to brief reporters on administration policies. Next week will mark six months since the last White House “daily” briefing, another erosion of transparency and democracy under Trump or a sad indictment of the “fake news” media’s incivility, depending on your view. "The reason Sarah Sanders does not go to the 'podium' much anymore is that the press covers her so rudely & inaccurately,

Earlier today Walmart CEO Doug McMillon officially announced a number of firearms and ammunition will no longer be sold at stores nationwide. The statement was quite incoherent, but here it is. Here is the @WalmartInc press release making the announcement about discontinuing ammunition sales. The CEO's description of ammunition and firearms is bizarrely incoherent. Great to know they put zero effort into learning about the products they sell. https://t.co/9jDviI1pkj — Stephen Gutowski (@StephenGutowski) September 3, 2019 Just last month an armed citizen became a hero after stopping a mass shooting at a Walmart in Missouri.

Socialist presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders says if he’s elected, he wants American taxpayers to pay for abortions in poor countries around the world to limit population growth. Why? Because Sanders claims mass abortions will limit climate change.Sanders made the assertions at the CNN townhall discussing the “climate crisis.” A female teacher asked the following question: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face.
Biden: 'We Can Take Millions

Former Vice President Joe Biden told a CNN town hall on climate change Wednesday night that he endorses high-speed rail as a way to "take millions of vehicles off the road.""Everything is incremental," Biden said. For example, you talked earlier about transportation. I've been pushing really hard for mass transit and for rail. We can take millions of vehicles off the road if we had high-speed rail. I've been a champion of that for the last 25 years. We know the corridors where we could do that. It would literally take millions of vehicles off the road. But you have to have a rail system that
Trump's Tariffs Fail Again 31 replies

In his book The Art of the Deal, President Donald Trump described his communication style as "truthful hyperbole." Hyperbole, sure. Truthful, questionable. Take Trump's recent speech in Pennsylvania where he declared that his tariffs had turned things around for the domestic steel industry. He also claimed the unratified United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement—USMCA or the new NAFTA—and his steep Chinese tariffs would also bring jobs back to the United States. Are the Trump trade policies bringing about a manufacturing revival?

‘an Assault on Our Democratic Principles’

Pop icon Barbra Streisand has declared that the Electoral College, a system widely seen as the bedrock of the U.S constitution and its democratic principles, represents an “assault on our democratic principles.” Speaking to The Washington Post for an article on what the U.S. Constitution represents to herself as well as other progressive figures such as Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Streisand described the system as “antiquated” and advocated replacing it with a system that allows the winner of the popular vote to win the election.

Pope Francis said he is "honored" to be criticized by conservative Catholics in the United States."For me, it's an honor that Americans are attacking me," Francis told reporters Wednesday during a flight to Mozambique. The pope's remarks came after journalist Nicolas Seneze presented his book about conservative critics of the papacy, according to Crux. Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni clarified after that "in an informal context the pope wanted to say that he always considers criticisms an honor, particularly when it comes from important thinkers and, in this case, of an important nation."

The United States is now ranked among the world's worst places to move to, due to rapidly increasing costs of living, health care and basic education. A new survey released this week of more than 20,000 expatriates representing 182 nationalities used five overall pillars of criteria, 48 separate factors and 17 subcategories to rank countries. Using a sample size of at least 75 survey participants per location, Quality of Life, Ease of Settling In, Working Abroad, Family Life, and Personal Finance were rated by expats from all over the globe. The sixth annual report from Expat Insider found the U.S. ranked 47th out of 64 countries rated in the survey.

A federal judge Tuesday ordered the White House to reverse its suspension of a reporter’s press credentials. Playboy reporter Brian Karem’s White House pass was temporarily revoked after he argued with President Donald Trump’s former aide Sebastian Gorka at a Rose Garden event in July. Karem’s hard pass — a long-term White House press pass — was suspended for 30 days in August by press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who cited his lack of “professionalism” and “decorum.” But U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras determined the standards for press behavior had not been made clear before the event and granted a preliminary injunction restoring Karem’s pass. “Grisham failed to provide
