    Chronicles ^ | 1 May, 2024 | MARK JUDGE
    A couple years ago the journalist Matt Taibbi came up with a telling new term for the way the media works in our time: bombholing. Bombholing is the practice of publishing wild and unsubstantiated stories in the press, then sending those same stories down the memory hole when they turn out to be false. Then the media hits viewers with a new “bombshell,” which makes people forget the old “bombshell.” Viewers are led “from mania to mania.” Taibbi once laid it out in more detail: News in the Trump years became a narrative drama, with each day advancing a tale...

    A Chicago veterinarian and dog breeder was busted in an FBI sting for sharing child pornography and making disturbing comments about his soon-to-be-born son. Adam Stafford King, a veterinary ophthalmologist from Elburn, was charged with one count of knowingly distributing child pornography following a months-long investigation. The Elburn man has a history of viewing explicit images of children dating back to at least 2017, according to court documents. The charges stem from an incident beginning in September 2023, when King began communicating with a New York man through the gay dating app Scruff. He and the man spoke interchangeably on...

    Tennessee State Senator Charlane Oliver (D-Nashville) warned state Republicans on Thursday moments after the Tennessee General Assembly passed a bill prohibiting local governments from inhibiting law enforcement that her Democrat constituents may respond with riots. @FoxNashville posted footage of the Thursday press conference at which Oliver and other Democrat legislators held at the Capitol in which they announced their disapproval of the bill. The legislation easily passed in the State Senate on Thursday in a partisan vote 26 to 6. The previous week, the Tennessee House passed the bill in a partisan 68 to 24 vote. “So yeah, we’re gonna...

    In the classroom, the boardroom, and at the speaker’s dais, the former chair of the joint chiefs cashes in. SINCE RETIRING FROM the military last year, former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley has become a senior adviser to JPMorgan Chase bank, joined the faculties of Princeton and Georgetown, and embraced the lucrative paid speaking circuit. From military pay of $204,000 a year, Milley is sure to skyrocket to compensation in the millions, especially because he is represented by the same high-powered speakers’ agency as Hillary Clinton, who faced criticism in 2016 for her paid...

    Mia Khalifa weighed in on the anti-war messaging at Sunday night's 96th Academy Awards, specifically regarding the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. The former adult film star has been a vocal supporter of Palestinians and critic of Israel amid the war in Gaza. The latest round of bloodshed erupted on October 7, when Hamas launched a surprise attack on southern Israel that killed 1,200 people and took about 250 hostages back to Gaza. Israel's subsequent airstrikes and invasion have killed about 30,000 Palestinians in the territory, many of them women and children, according to Reuters, citing Gaza's Health ministry. With the conflict...

    Jimmy Kimmel took a moment during the Oscars telecast right before Al Pacino took the stage to present best picture to “Oppenheimer” to read aloud Donald Trump‘s latest social media post that bashed Kimmel as this year’s Oscars host. “Has there EVER been a WORSE HOST than Jimmy Kimmel at The Oscars,” Trump asked his followers. “His opening was that of a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be. Get rid of Kimmel and perhaps replace him with another washed up, but cheap, ABC ‘talent,’ George Slopanopoulos. He...

    DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning. Host Margaret Brennen had asked Secretary Mayorkas if the illegal alien who killed Laken Riley should have been deported. He never answered, but instead deflected the question. Laken Riley, a 22-year-old Georgia nursing student, was brutally murdered by one of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens. Biden won’t say Laken Riley’s name either. “Should this man have been deported?” Brennen asked Mayorkas. “One individual is responsible for the murder, and that is the murderer,” Mayorkas responded. “Are you saying there that the Federal Government had been informed about this...
