(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY JULY 24, 2019) — Given the campaign inactivity thus far, several have been asking THE PLANET if November’s mayoral election is too early to call in favor of Tyer. Short answer: A qualified yes, which we shall expound upon in a future column. We can say, however, that 2020 is the President’s for the taking.

First time around for Donald Trump, 2016, he faced 16 other challengers for the GOP nomination. Given his lack of political experience, his stomping business flash, The Hair, and the P.T. Barnum aspect of his neon personality, few took him seriously.

Then it happened.

Trump reinvented presidential politics, perhaps forever. It was saxman Bill Clinton on The Arsenio Hall Show to a steroidal degree.

Trump didn’t have to ditch the traditional campaign playbook, because he never had one. He rode a shoestring organization compared to the bulky, bureaucratic camps of his foes. Because of that, he could move with lightning speed, never striking in the same place twice — unless he wanted to.

The Donald spoke with an oblique plainness, an oxymoronic frankness brutal if not true, truest when most outrgeous. He held back nothing. Meanwhile, his rivals played it safe, piling euphemisms into barrels and unloading them on distant America. They whispered in agate. Trump boasted in large type. They came off as hesitant commas. He barged in as an endless series of exclamation points. America had never seen its like.

For 2020, Trump has no competition. He will waltz to the convention, leave with the nomination, and barrel into the “postseason” on a roll buttered on both sides.

In 2016, he faced Hilary Clinton. The Dragon Lady, a shrewd and ruthless political operative. In 2020, Trump faces a 25-pack of wannabes. This lusterless list of acolytes boils down to (a) Uncle Joe Biden, former senator, VP, and Syracuse grad; (b) Kamala Harris, one of the neo-fascist “progressives” who campaign on race, gender, and immigration; (c) Elizabeth Warren of faux Native Americanism, and (d) the Anonymous Others.

In the end,THE PLANET predicts Trump vs. Biden. Uncle Joe will look as out-of-touch as an ashen John McCain did against the energetic bolts of Barack Obama. Trump haters know that they will have little chance in 2020 and therefore pray for Trump to self-destruct. Won’t happen. Trump THRIVES of what would destroy other national figures. No one has been able to explain this astounding quality, easily the most astonishing political development of this millennium. Trump haters (he has no critics) call it opprobrious. His legions love it.

Trump again will spend his time, talents, and resources where they would do him the most electoral (not popular) good. Won in 2016, will win in 2020.

Trump’s deadliest weapon on the campaign trail is his domination of the news cycle. He’s a 24/7 newsmaker. The media find his tweets and sound bites irresistible. The more outrageous, the more coverage, resulting in Trump being inescapable. He rents free space in the hearts of his supporters and the heads of his enemies. More importantly, his haters are forever on the retreat. Their attacks, as the Four Horses of the Squad-ocolypse demonstrate, come off as shrill and defensive. They take Trump’s bait every time, polarizing the electorate, shredding their party, and giving Trump more headlines and airtime.

Trump is Campaign King. THE PLANET thought we would never seen anyone better on the stump than Bill Clinton, but Trump bests even Bubba. The moment one of his rivals peeps, Trump sends out a tweet that acts like a Tsunami that washes away everything but itself. Trump is everywhere, all the time. In 2020, his shoestring organization has been replaced by a campaign organization straight out of The Jetsons, a Death Star without the tiny opening for Luke Skywalker’s fighter. The Trump campaign will approach $1 billion in expenditures.

The Democrats have Act Blue. Trump has created Win Red.

For better or worse, America, the Reds have it.

    Not so sure Dan. If Biden gets nomination, and it’s a big if, I expect he’ll pick Harris as veep. That alone is reason enough to vote for Trump again, and now Biden has just come out against mandatory minimums and death penalty. So I would never vote for Biden but I think there’s plenty of people that pulled the lever for Trump that are disgusted with his antics and won’t do it again, regardless of his opposition. Time will tell.

    As to mayoral race,
    it really is too early to call but then again, I see it as a choice between a couple Whenner, feminist, progressives, the Lions Tax and Spend if you will, and in that case, incumbent with congenial personality and more likeability beats opponent biggly.

    Let’s remember:

    1) The Death Star was taken out by one tiny X-Wing fighter piloted by a single pilot. The second Death Star was destroyed just as easily and the Emperor tossed over a rail down a long shaft.

    2) I would say the Democrats are more Star Trek to Trump’s Imperial Death Star. It is also well known among sci-fi lovers that the single Federation starship Enterprise could easily take out any Imperial star destroyer as well as the Death Star due to superior weaponry. Let’s not forget Picard wiped out many an “impervious” Borg cube.

    In other words, the more invulnerable we believe something is, the more easily it gets blasted into oblivion.

          Why is iBerkshires considered a legitimate news source at all? Isn’t it funded by the City of Pittsfield as something of a chamber of commerce promo arm? Maybe a state sponsored source of media? It’s part of Downtown Pittsfield which is itself an epic money sucking boondoggle. I’m sure iBerkshire know all about the bags of cash that got lost in the Beacon but they don’t report on that either.

            iBerkshires was once upon a time a “legit news source,” but that time has passed. It is running into the same problems as all of Berkshire media: Not enough ad $$ coming into the till. Our newsroom sources there paint a pretty grim picture. One has pretty strong ties to the business end, so the info seems solid. File it under “T” for “Trouble in Paradise.”

    The referee needs to step in an call this fight now. Muller is taking so many rights to the head he is begging for a left. He is obviously not the one who was in charge of this investigation and was just a figure head for it. Weissman was the one who needed to be in the hot seat today. Muller looks like he tookJoe Frazier ‘s left hook to the head that sent Ali to the canvas in their first fight that sealed his win.

            Joe Louis. The names we’ve been bringing up (Frazier, Foreman, Tyson, Louis) reveals the extent to which boxing has become a buckshot-scattered side show. Boxing was best when there was ONE title in each division and ONE championship match to determine the best. One of my favorite boxers, much underrated, was Nino Benvenutti. Loved his relentless style. I also admired Johannsen, Basilio, and, of course, Ali. Bottom line, I was a Frazier guy.

            Frazier beat Jimmy Ellis for the title and I really enjoyed Oscar Bonavena giving them all a run for their money. Boxing changed so much with the money to be made from having so many belts for each division. WBA, WBC etc.. Also they use to fight more often to defend their championships versus waiting 2-3 years like they do now.

            July 25, 2019 at 2:23 pm #

            Bonavena was a kind of rich man’s Chuck Wepner. I also enjoyed Jerry Quarry. Tough, tough kid. Then Pittsfield had Eddie Spence, who was Syracuse’s Greg Sorrentino. Billy Backus, welterweight champ, pound for pound you couldn’t find a scrappier battler. When I taught at Lemoyne, the AD was none other than Carmen Basilio. I lucked out with a locker in the gym right next to his. We had many greats chats about the Squared Circle. And as for fight announcers, give me the great Don Dunphy any day.

          Robert Mueller Corrects Record on Decision Not to Indict the President

          At the end of his closing statement before the House Intelligence Committee, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller issues a correction to earlier testimony before the House Judiciary Committee when he told Representative Ted Lieu that he did not indict President Trump because of a Justice Department opinion that a sitting president cannot be indicted. Mr. Mueller modifies his response to say that he did not “make a determination” on the matter because of the OLC opinion.

          The dossier to get dirt on Trump was the Russian influence. The Mueller investigation was all about revenge for Hillary if she lost. The “insurance policy” because they knew all along that there was no “there there”.

          Obama was in charge when Russia began to get very bold about trying to interfere in our elections. If Mueller was truly interested in getting to the origins of Russian influence, he would have started by investigating the Obama administration, but all the Hillary lovers on Mueller’s team, who it turns out were really running the investigation, only wanted to try to pin this on Trump.

      You need to watch the entire proceedings in which it becomes clear that the Hillary lovers were running the entire investigation and
      Mueller didn’t even write the Mueller report. This was a complete witch hunt to make Trump look bad since they knew there was no “there there”. The Hillary lovers could care less about Russian interference since they knew the collusion was on their side with the lies from the dossier and allowing Russia to get out of control during the Obama administration.

    Two long years ago
    the probe began and many 
    that someday it would make them smile.
    And those who said it had no chance
    were scowled upon and seen askance
    so desperate was the hope to see a trial.

    But February made them shiver
    as it came clear he’d not deliver.
    The news that they desired
    was not to be acquired.

    I know that many people cried
    when they read the news, it hurt their pride,
    so deeply in the pipe dream mired
    the day collusion died.

    So bye, bye to the collusion lie,
    Russian Agents, Putin’s Puppet and a plot to deny.
    From each new event how the conjecture would fly.
    Can they let it go and just let it die?
    Let it go and just let it die.

    We all know that he’s corrupt
    and his list of crimes is building up
    so I’ll just list them down below.
    While emoluments could’ve kicked the goal
    collusion was their chosen roll
    investigating all of it real slow.

    Well, the Media then lost their mind
    as they blundered backward fully blind.
    Collusion became news,
    evidence not vital for clues.

    The other news stories all were then chucked
    while collusion filled every news truck
    But I knew they ran out of luck
    the day collusion died.

    But they kept singing
    Bye, bye he’s a Russian ally
    Putin Puppet, Russian agent and a treasonous spy
    and every day, more wacky theories would fly.
    Time to let it go and just let it to die.
    Let it go and just let it die.

    Now when Mueller issued his report
    the media could not contort it
    to save face though they did try.
    They lost all credibility.
    Embarrassed is what they should be,
    and the damage done they cannot deny.

    They gave victory to the president,
    validation as if heaven sent.
    The courtroom was adjourned,
    no verdict was returned.
    And now when he screams about fake news
    he’ll be correct thanks to their ruse.
    The “Witch Hunt” he’ll rightfully accuse
    the day collusion died.

    ‘cause they were singing
    Bye, bye he’s a Russian ally
    Putin Puppet, Russian agent and a treasonous spy
    And every day, more crazy theories would fly
    time to let it go and just let it to die.
    let it go and just let it die.

    I met a girl who sang the blues.
    She she asked me for some happy news.
    I offered but she just turned away.
    Those who followed actual facts
    instead of “liberal media” hacks
    would know that Mueller knew the only way.

    He farmed out criminal indictments
    to seven districts, there’s excitement,
    all of them pardon-proof,
    not like the collusion spoof.
    So carefully he did anoint
    a prosecution starting point
    the outcome couldn’t disappoint
    the day collusion died.

    Yet they’re still singing
    Bye, bye he’s a Russian ally
    Putin Puppet, Russian agent and a treasonous spy.
    The Russian hysteria was misplaced outcry.
    Time to let it go and just let it die.
    Let it go and just let it die.

    So, bye, bye to the collusion lie,
    Collusion obsession-gave the press a black eye.
    And if they persist the damage will amplify
    Time to let it go and just let it die.

    The curtain has been lifted on the wizard. Mueller has shown himself to be either a stumblebum, or a stooge for the deep state, or a man whose lost a couple rungs of his ladder. The democrats’ boosted Trumps’ 2020 chances biggly today.

        Trump says Jeff Epstein is a “terrific guy”. They both have had teenage girl beauty pageants and own adjoining properties in Florida. Epstein has been charged with human trafficking and Trump is caging children and nobody knows how many or where they all are.

          President Trump kicked Epstein out of his properties. He wasn’t cozying up with Epstein like Bill Clinton and so many other corrupt Dems.

          The cage pictures were from the Obama years.

            Trump said Epstein was a terrific guy. And he is always kicking someone to the curb after he loves them for a period of time.

            You can visit one of the cages yourself today if you want to Pat. But something tells me kids in cages is not something that upsets you too much.

      Trump needs Russia. He would not have gotten elected the first time without them and his people know that. And he needs them even more this time since he has pissed off so many people. Woman, gays, and people of color. He will have the fake Christians though and that is a huge block. But the Russians will come in with their social media propaganda in the last couple of weeks to give him about 20% of his total.

      And he is not going to upset them in any way by trying to protect our democratic election system. He has told Mitch McConnel to block any effort for a bill to protect our system.

    Clinton supporter and former police officer tried to kill Epstein in jail
    Since Epstein was in a special confinement section, corrections officers had to allow tartaglione access to Epstein.

    Tartaglione’s sister and mother both work or worked for Bill Clinton in Harlem and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, respectively.

    It dawned on me the other day that Nancy doesn’t want to impeach Trump because she’s getting everything she and Dems want in terms of spending.

    Check the rising fed budget/deficit, or follow the money.

    Donald no conservative, as I’ve said before.

    You can also trace the demonization of conservatives to their attempts to cut budget items. BUt play along with the spending, and the Left will go easy (ier) on you.

    Dems have a huge problem because if Turmp is so bad, bad, bad, and committed crimes, crimes, crimes, why the hell won’t they impeach him?

    Oh, I guess Trump can’t be that bad then.

      Kind of disingenuous to give huge tax breaks to the top 1% and then cut social programs for the less fortunate. If the rich get a big bowl of gravy then the lower income folk should get at least a thimble full.

      Yes. No difference between Repubs and Dems. Both spend spend spend, then spend more more more. The vote for the White House truly doesn’t matter. We have three branches of government, each trying to assert themselves as dominant. They all wash into each other so that power becomes ill defined and up for grabs — to the highest bidder.

          “Jeffrey is both a highly successful financier and a committed philanthropist with a keen sense of global markets and an in-depth knowledge of twenty-first-century science, I especially appreciated his insights and generosity during the recent trip to Africa to work on democratization, empowering the poor, citizen service, and combating HIV/AIDS.”
