Biden Accepts Nomination
|Only your votes can make him our 46th President|
Last night, in a powerful speech, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden attacked
President Trump's failures and promised to bring an end to this "season of darkness" in what amounts to a struggle for America’s soul.
Make sure that you are registered and that
you vote as early as possible in person or by mail. There is no choice, as Biden's words made it clear. Trump must go.

About Emails and This Blog
Up until about
eighteen months ago, each time I added a new posting to my blog (www.jackspotpourri.com), I sent out an Email to about 140 Email
addresses, summarizing what the posting contained and suggesting they look at
it via a link which that Email contained. Eventually I
realized that most of these recipients couldn’t care less about the blog so I
stopped doing it that way. Instead, I fully relied on a link to my blog
which appears on any Emails I sent to anyone. I found that there
was no reduction in the number of people accessing the blog on their own or
from that link.
I do, however, still maintain
an Email list of about 40 addresses of those whom I feel are really interested
in following the blog and might not be getting those other routine Emails with
the link to it mentioned above. Usually the Emails I sent to these 40
addresses include something, usually political, which I feel is particularly
worthwhile. And of course, there is a link to the blog on that Email. I have found that traffic on the blog
increases whenever I send out an Email to that “list of 40.” That is
really the underlying purpose of the list of 40,” to juice up the number who
This message, which
you now are reading, recently went out to that “list of 40,” and is appearing on this blog itself at this time. If you know anyone whom you feel should be added to that “list
of 40,” just provide me with their Email address. They need not live in Cascade Lakes. The
blog has followers all over the world, as enumerated in the my posting on
August 14, 2020.
Nut Job Wins G.O.P. Primary to Oppose Congresswoman Lois Frankel
The Republican primary
for the seat in Congress from Florida’s 21st Congressional District
(Lois Frankel’s seat) was just won by Laura Loomer, who easily defeated some
normal (?) traditional Republicans, getting 42.5% of the G.O.P. vote. Loomer is what I would call a nut job, banned
from most internet media for her baseless, conspiracy-founded postings. She will run against Frankel in November,
lose in what is a very strong Democratic district but take advantage of her
candidacy to continue to spout poisonous lies. Her primary loyalty seems to be
to the QAnon organization of right-wing nut job conspiracy-believers. Of course, the First Amendment allows her to
say what she says. Most important is
that the President welcomed her victory and accepted with it her inane ideas
and those of her supporters. He doesn’t care where his support comes from.
QAnon followers have
given up on reasonable thought processes, and profess cult-like ideas similar
to those which can inspire real acts of violence such as the pizza shooting in
Washington by a nut job who believed a Clinton-led group of perverts was
imprisoning children in the basement of a pizzeria, and the Walmart shooter in
El Paso who drove 600 miles to try to prevent a “Hispanic invasion of Texas.” So "nut jobs" can really be dangerous.
The President accepts this kind of dangerous support
from screwballs like Loomer knowing these are the kind of people who are
gullible enough and ignorant enough to vote for him. The parallel which comes to mind are the
mindless followers of Jim Jones’ cult of forty years ago, 900 of whom swallowed
the ‘Kool Aid’ he had prepared for them and died.
reporting of the primary election results, the Palm Beach Post article
said that it was “a stunning achievement for the self-described ‘Most Banned
Woman on the Planet’ and raises a major question: In 2020, what defines a Republican and what
does the party stand for?”
I can answer that
question! There is no longer a
Republican party. The alleged party using
that name today just contains (1) nut jobs like Loomer, (2) racists and bigots
of many varieties (3) believers in gun violence as a right and (4) pathetic office-holders who know that without Trump’s
support and that of the Loomer-type people, they would be out of a job. But even they will go down to defeat in
November, when they will find that their being Trump supporters will be proven
to be a burden rather than an advantage. If Rick Scott or Marco Rubio or Ron DeSantis had to run on the same ticket as Trump this year, they would lose!
But remember, Loomer
received 42.5% of the vote in the G.O.P. primary. That’s a frighteningly big number when you
recognize that Republicans are dangerous to the health of America! Trump and his enablers proved that in more
ways than one.
Late Breaking News from Corruption-Central
I won’t even go into
yesterday’s arrest of Trump 2016 advisor Steve Bannon for fraud in connection
with funds he was privately raising to help pay for Trump’s wall on the Mexican
border. Keep watching TV (not Fox) and reading the
Suffice it to say, a lot
of the money collected through Bannon’s efforts went somewhere other than
toward building that wall. What was done
was clearly illegal. But because they
had a friend in the White House (who claims he didn’t know anything about it)
they carelessly left a paper trail, documenting their lawbreaking activities
and those involved in it. So it looks
like Bannon is headed in the same direction as the others involved in electing
Donald Trump to the presidency, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates (and
others), all convicted felons, some of whom are avoiding imprisonment at this moment because of
their relationship with the “lawbreaker-in-chief.” It is inconceivable that he himself will not
be drawn into the web and with no one to pardon him, also become a candidate
for a beachfront villa in Guantanamo, where they all probably will end up.

The Post Office Story Continues
deJoy testifies before Congress today. Keep watching TV (not Fox) and reading the papers to keep up with the story. He’s another millionaire crook who bought a government appointment through campaign donations. Although he supposedly has stopped cutting postal services and
operations, the fate of the hundreds of mail sorting machines, perhaps already
destroyed, dismantled or just plain missing in action, is unknown. Doing what he did to the Postal Service, probably at the direct request of the President, violates the Constituion. That is a crime. There should be a place reserved for him as well in Guantanamo.
|Postal mail sorting equipment - fate unknown|
Trump needs to sabotage
the Postal Service in order to reduce the amount of voting which will be done
by mail in the upcoming election in part because of the Cofid19 pandemic, a
tragedy which will keep many away from physical voting places. The more people who vote, the greater will be
his defeat, and the weaker his arguments about election fraud, certain to be
made, will be. So vote, please!
And the Courts have once
again ordered that Trump’s tax records be made available to the Southern
District of New York’s Federal prosecutors.
Looks like all of the Donald’s chickens are coming home to roost at the
same time … and they have diahrrea! Tragically,
Trump is skilled at postponing legal actions for years, and years, and
years, and more years, till they finally go away. Ask anyone to whom he owed money. So,
