You remember Peter Strozk don't you? He's the slimy former FBI agent who was out to get President Trump. He's in the news again.


Disgraced former FBI special agent Peter Strzok was slammed by a top agency official over his “sustained pattern of bad judgment” and “selfishness” that seriously damaged the reputation and credibility of the bureau in a scathing draft of his termination letter.

Strzok’s hatred of former President Donald J. Trump and obsession with the debunked Russiagate conspiracy theory that the ex-POTUS was in cahoots with the Kremlin clearly affected his judgement, resulting in anti-Trump text messages that were deeply embarrassing to the nation’s foremost law enforcement agency, leading to his firing in 2018, a steamy, adulterous affair with FBI attorney Lisa Page also didn’t help.

The firing letter which was written by David Bowdich who was the bureau’s deputy director at the time was released as a part of the FBI’s response to Strzok’s federal lawsuit alleging that his privacy rights were violated and that he was wrongfully terminated.

I wonder how many other events these jokers added weight to their fish. WATCH: Stunning Moment Cheating Scandal Allegedly Uncovered at Pro-Fishing Tournament

They were doing the weigh-in and they declared Jake Runyan and Chase Cominsky the winners based on the weight of the fish being the most.

But then the tournament director Jason Fischer must have had some suspicions because he decided to slice open the fish that the pair turned in. But that’s when he suddenly lost it and shouted that he had found weights in the fish.

The first video shows the moment of discovery, the second the reaction of Fischer and the other fishermen.

We all knew this after Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell stabbed President Trump and the conservatives in the back. Republicans abandon Obamacare repeal

WASHINGTON — Republicans are abandoning their long crusade to repeal the Affordable Care Act, making the 2022 election the first in more than a decade that won’t be fought over whether to protect or undo President Barack Obama’s signature achievement.

The diminished appetite for repeal means the law — which has extended health care coverage to millions of people and survived numerous near-death experiences in Congress and the courts — now appears safer than ever.

Conflict? I'm just shocked that teenage girls do not want to dress and shower with a male in their locker room.

Vermont High School Girls Volleyball Team Banned From Locker Room For Objecting To Changing With Biological Male

“I feel like for stating my opinion — that I don’t want a biological man changing with me — that I should not have harassment charges or bullying charges. They should all be dropped.”

The food is late. And burnt. Genius Award Winner.

A food delivery drone operated by Alphabet subsidiary Wing landed on overhead power lines in Brisbane, Australia, and caught fire. As a result, the network was shut down by energy firm Energex to respond to the incident, leaving thousands without power.

Some 2,000 individuals were left without electricity for around 45 minutes, reports ABC News and The Age, while 300 customers had no power for three hours.

Energex spokesman Danny Donald told The Age that the drone “landed on top of 11,000 volts and whilst it didn’t take out power, there was voltage tracking across the drone and the drone caught fire and fell to the ground.”
