Hello. This is Botany. I am still alive.

The last few months have been tough but it looks like I’ll be around for a few more trips around the sun.

Hospital food is brutal.

And why is Fox News allowed to spread their lies? They should be outlawed.

October 13, 2023

Rant warning. I am lying in a hospital room after a wicked

case of covid. I have had all the vaccines except for the last
one and they no doubt saved my life.

THIS SHIT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BEHIND US BY NOW EXCEPT
FOR THE GOP, FOX NEWS, RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION, AND
SOCIAL MEDIA GARBAGE ABOUT THE VACCINES.

FUCK YOU RON DESANTIS, ABBOTT, NOEM, AND SO ON.

MOTHER FUCKERS TOOK WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A
STRAIGHT FORWARD MEDICAL SCIENCE ISSUE AND MADE
IT POLITICAL. THEY MADE PEOPLE GET SICK AND OR DIE
FOR SOME KIND OF POWER PLAY.

VOTE THEM OUT.

FYI Donald Trump's Israel Intel Leak Under Scrutiny After Hamas Attack (newsweek)

Donald Trump's sharing of alleged classified intelligence to Russian officials in the White House has come under scrutiny amid a large-scale attack by the Hamas Islamist military group against Israel.

snip

Thom Hartmann, author and political commentator, posted on X, formerly Twitter, while sharing a 2017 article from The Washington Post: "Hamas apparently knew how to get around Israel's Iron Dome defenses. They probably learned this from Iran. Iran almost certainly got the information from Russia. And who gave it to Russia? Sure looks like it was Donald Trump, at the request of Putin."

(BTW The iron dome is old news but its weakness and ways around might not be.)

snip

Allison Gill, who tweets using the account for the Mueller, She Wrote podcast, added: "Don't forget: Trump gave Israeli intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office 6 years ago. Putin armed Iran in exchange for drones to attack Ukraine."

snip

"This isn't hard to follow," added musician and author Mikel Jollett. "Trump gave military intel to the Russians. The Russians, who are extremely close allies with Iran, gave it to Iran. Iran gave that information to Hamas. Hamas used it to attack Israel. This is why intel security matters. Republicans DO NOT CARE."

Newsweek has contacted Trump's office for comment via email.

Are these the steps that brought us to this shit show?

Trump told Russia about Israel's "iron dome" missile defense system

Russia told Iran about Israel's "iron dome" missile defense system

Iran told Hamas about Israel's "iron dome" missile defense system

Hamas used the information about Israel's "iron dome" missile defense system to launch an attack on Israel

Republicans have now blamed President Biden for Hamas' attack

And Tommy Tuberville along with members of the House Free Dumb Caucus have snarled up Congress
so we don't have the needed military leadership in place and the funding that us now needed is tied up

Who is that stupid ass jack wagon, Lee Zeldin? I had never heard of him until this AM on Fox.

I was channel surfing from MSNBC/CNN (ch 53 & ch 51) up to the weather channel (ch 62) when
I hit the Fox Propaganda network (ch 55)

Lee Zeldin, "Socialist Biden administration is in support of Hamas." (very rough quote)

*******

ATTN Mr. Zeldin this is Trump selling out an Israeli agent who was inside of ISIS in Syria to the Russians in
the Oval Office in the winter of 2017.

I thought this had to be an internet "thing" Trump Lawyer Sports Gamer Laptop At $250 Million Fraud

Trump Lawyer Sports Gamer Laptop At $250 Million Fraud Trial [Update: She Says It Belonged To The Court]
Alina Habba's Asus ROG glowed blue after she opened it in court

And then she blamed the court.

Today is the first day of former president Donald Trump’s $250 million fraud trial in New York. A case brought by the state’s attorney general accuses the Republican primary frontrunner of lying about his net worth by billions of dollars to try to secure more favorable loan terms. One of his attorneys, Alina Habba, showed up with what appears to be an Asus ROG gaming laptop. Its RGB logo changed colors during the hearing.

snip

The laptop in question looks like it could be the ROG Strix G17 G712 model. Originally released in 2021, it sports a 17-inch screen, an RTX 2070 Super GPU, 2.3 GHz Intel i7, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and of course, an RGB keyboard and light bar with Asus’ Aura Sync. It currently sells for about $1,700.

Habba did not immediately respond to a request for comment about what the exact model of the laptop was, how often she games on it, or if Trump has ever watched her play on it.

Please remember that in 2016 Scalise knew about Putin paying Trump and Jordan took part in the ....

... 1/6/21 Coup

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/paul-ryan-keeps-it-family-kevin-mccarthy-russia-trump

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to Entous, a superb reporter who heard a tape recording of the colloquy. “Swear to God.”

snip

In the Post piece, McCarthy’s remark is met with laughter, and Ryan cautions his colleagues, “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?”

And then, amid more laughter, Ryan says, “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

“That’s how you know that we’re tight,” Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, says.

“What’s said in the family stays in the family,” Ryan concludes.

*******

&t=60s

Jordan seems not to remember about if he talked w/Trump on 1/6/21

These are un-American Treason Weasels .... and they want to be in House Leadership?

Never ever forget that Kevin McCarthy knew that Putin was paying Trump in 2016 (along w/Ryan, Scalis

.... and McConnell [he was told by US Intel]) and kept the subject hidden or when approached by the
Washington Post just said he was "just joking.


“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to Entous, a superb reporter who heard a tape recording of the colloquy. “Swear to God.”

Dana Rohrabacher is a Republican from California with a peculiar amalgam of views: pro-marijuana, dubious about climate change, pro-torture. For this last position, in 2007, Keith Olbermann awarded him his periodic “Worst Person in the World” award, on his old MSNBC show. Like Trump, Rohrabacher has been highly solicitous of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Last year, Politico ran an article on Rohrabacher called “Putin’s Favorite Congressman.”

In the Post piece, McCarthy’s remark is met with laughter, and Ryan cautions his colleagues, “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?”

And then, amid more laughter, Ryan says, “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”
