RABID RIGHT SHOWS HYPOCRISY IN READE’S ACCUSATION AGAINST BIDEN

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY MAY 4, 2020) — Hypocrisy has no party. It belongs to “unenrolled.” Witness the right’s treatment of Joe Biden with respect to long-past-expiration-date accusations of sexual harassment from a former aide. The right’s doing what the left did to Brett Kavanaugh.

Reade, who worked for then-Sen. Biden in 1993, made her accusations last month, 27 years after she claims Biden “bothered” her. Biden heard the nervous clamor from the self-righteous in his own party that he address the situation. “I think he should respond,” said the President. Women’s rights groups? Not so much, though some. “Address the accusation,” they implored, with the right implying the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s “silence” indicated guilt.

Last week, Biden did confront the charges and did so in a forthright, “look-me-in-the-eye” manner.

“It never happened,” Biden said. “I’m saying, unequivocally, that it never, ever happened.” He encouraged an investigation as far-reaching as it wants to go. This is the behavior of an innocent man. Of course, that wasn’t enough for the limb-end neocons.

THE PLANET sides with Biden. Allow us to make the case:

  • Critics scoured the papers of the former senator and Vice President then complained they “mysteriously” contained no information on Reade. That’s true, but it’s no mystery. Such private collections do not contain personnel files. Reade wasn’t in the files, and neither were any of Biden’s other Senate aides. Those records belong to the National Archives.
  • Those out gunning for Biden searched the Archives. They came up short.
  • There is a lack of third-party corroboration.
  • Reade can’t remember the dates of the alleged incident.
  • She can’t remember the time. Day or night? She says she doesn’t know.
  • What month? She can’t recall.
  • She can’t even identify the location. In the Senate? In Biden’s private office? On Funk and Wagnell’s porch?
  • Reade has praised Biden countless times over the years, gushing over how well he treated staff, his effectiveness in the Senate, great family man, yada-yada/yuckety yuck.
  • Reade claimed she told three Biden staffers about the alleged incident shortly after it happened: Marianne Baker, Biden’s executive assistant; Dennis Toner, advisor; and Jed Kaufman, top aide. All three denied Reade ever spoke to them about it.
  • Her story keeps changing. In April 2019, Reade went to a California newspaper saying Biden “made me uncomfortable,” but the paper dropped the story. “I just really got shot down,” she said. Right. A newspaper gets a bombshell story placed in its lap, one with national implications, and it … walks away? Nope. Never. Most likely, the paper did its due diligence and concluded that Reade made the whole thing up.
  • Reade initially described the alleged assault as Biden touching her on her neck and shoulders. Then, a few weeks ago, it progressed to Biden reaching under her skirt and forcibly penetrating her with his fingers. That’s not believable.
  • She delayed reporting for 27 years.
  • Reade said she filed “a formal complaint” at the time. With what office? She doesn’t say. No such record has ever been found.
  • In the early primary season, Reade jumped on Bernie Sanders’ bandwagon. Sanders, as you’ll recall, started out fast but then fizzled. It was only later, when Biden took control of the race, that Reade made her claim. Motive: Hoping to derail the Biden Express.

Neither THE PLANET nor anyone else knows the Truth. Only Biden and Reade know with certainty what did or did not happen. Failing the omniscient narrator, it remains for reasonable people to get as much information as they can from both sides, then begin with due process. Add it all up, and, despite the right’s desire to put Biden on the rack, the case features plenty of reasonable doubt in Reade’s story. She has zero credibility.

Biden should not have to face this sideshow. As the campaign continues, let him rise or fall on the merits.

Dan, the right is definitely not doing to Biden what those despicable dems did to Kavenaugh. No way. Dems were much worse. And Biden did 16 interviews and was never asked about it, and MSN provided sparse coverage and NYT altered story after publication to take out the numerous other complaints of Biden getting touchy freely with the women, and most important of all, when he was questioned, the most Important question wasn’t asked – What exactly do you remember about Tara Reid and did she ever bring you a gym bag, and I’d so what do you recall about the hand off? Further, there are at least two “fresh complaint” witnesses and 4 people that say she told them years ago some version of this. I think Creepy Sleepy Joe got handsy with her like he did with dozens of others, and that… Read more »

Dan,

Biden’s camp was in his papers fishing around couple months back, not the opposition. Who knows what was removed?

Joe refuses to allow his papers search for any records of Tara, by anyone, let alone critics.

Any complaint would not be in the archives.

Joe may seem credible because he is so out of it he doesn’t remember it, and manhandled so many women, he doesn’t recall this episode.

But I agree – complainant is a day late and a dollar short, as they say.

Seems like the mayor feels like she can give away the store while the taxpayers are focused on staying alive. Too bad senior citizens are not in her special interest grouping. She has decided to fleece them and get them into the elderly housing units. Just imagine what all that money could do for a potholed road or picking up some of her garbage. By the way, do you know what likes garbage dumps like the one the mayor is building in Pittsfield?? RATS. Rats love garbage dumps and Pittsfield seems to be beckoning them to us.

History is mostly written by the victor. I have witnessed people in power write the narrative against me and those who I love when my dad was a politician two decades ago. It is painful to experience manipulation of the truth and half-truths. Also, I was indicted for two felonies for nearly 3 years of my life that I was acquitted of in NH Superior Court in Nashua nearly one decade ago. I read all about what my native hometown of Pittsfield (Mass.) did to the now late Bernard Baran in the 1980’s. The old saying is that the color of “Justice” is green (money). I think that any man who runs for U.S. President is going to have women accuse him of sexual harassment, which is both wrong and illegal. It also happened to Clarence Thomas and then Brett Kavanaugh when they were… Read more »

Biiden has Tedwards other piece of “bread” , the “waitress sandwich”, selecting his running mate.

Tedward and Dodd

“When she put in an appearance in their private retreat – ‘The Teddy Kennedy Fun Room’ – the Massachusetts senator picked her up and heaved her onto a table. The crystal candlesticks and champagne glasses shattered as he grabbed her again and flung her on top of Dodd.

“Then Kennedy threw himself on top of the woman. The waitress implored Mr. Kennedy to ‘Get off me!’

“Another waitress entered to find ‘things all tipped over and Kennedy was on top, [the waitress] was in the middle and Dodd was on the bottom.’ At that point the sandwich was disassembled.”

.Neither Dead Ted nor Dodd denied it happened. Dodd, 41 at the time, cited a “youthful” indiscretion.

The left always demonstrates an amazing level of extra sensory perception when it comes to knowing how the rest of us think and believe…”No one with discernment believed it” as one example. They also have an uncanny aptitude of being able so say anything and Voila !it becomes truth. Their linquitic con artistry rises beyond ludicrous. The greatest travesty of all of this is the number of “useful Idiots” or Alinskyites that buy into this lock, stock and barrel.

I disagree, Dan. Your title, “Rabid Right Shows Hypocrisy” is way off! Rabid right??? This claim was brought forth by Democrat Tara Reade. The mainstream media has largely ignored it. Reade worked for Joe, we have the Larry King tape, friends and a brother of Tara have corroborated her story. If you recall, Blasey-Ford couldn’t remember any details in her claim against Kavanaugh, no one could corroborate her story, and there was no pattern. In the Reade allegations, any paper trail that exists is locked up in Delaware per the Mika interview. In Joe’s case, there is a pattern of touchy/feely behavior – much of it caught on tape. Pelosi is quoted as saying “it’s just Joe being Joe.” Your comment that Biden “should not have to face this sideshow” is laughable – he’s running for President! It goes with the territory!!

I believe in innocent until proven guilty and last I checked that was the law of the land here in the United States, but the far left media refusing to even cover the story until they were forced to is the slap in the face for fairness. When BIden did come forward to deny the allegations, he didn’t go on national TV, but instead chose the Mika and Joe show? Mika and Joe may… Read more »

Dr. Jonathan Bannard-Smith, a critical care specialist at the Manchester Royal Infirmary in the UK, told the Guardian that some patients are unaware that their oxygen saturations are so low.

He added: “It’s intriguing to see so many people coming in, quite how hypoxic they are due to COVID-19.”

I mean when you look at the symptoms for both put out by the CDC, I don’t think it is an unfair comparison. Apparently 2 months after this shit show started, our state government decided now was the time to put out an executive order on masks. The same government that told us a couple months back, that masks would not be beneficial. I hope everyone here is enjoying having their civil liberties completely stripped away, although for the authoritarians and politicians this is exactly what they want.

The reason they said no masks in the beginning was because they needed any stock available for medical professionals. The lack of PPE in hospitals made toilet paper look easy to find.

Then they went to “stay inside” stay home/stay safe.
If you aren’t going anywhere, you don’t need a mask. Not a real brain teaser there.
They then recommended masks if going out, the six foot rule.
Know that many of the rules the states slowly decided to implimentbwere things on a long list from the CDC.
Even at BHS they changed from the cdc info dozens of times as things ran out or staff was non-existent.

The problem is, that is not the reasoning the CDC gave for not wearing masks. They encouraged us to #STOPBUYINGMASKS because they were not effective in preventing the spread of Coronavirus.

You see where I am going with this? People don’t like to be treated like fools. These are the same people that encouraged us to take cruises, not take it seriously, and don’t wear masks. Now we are supposed to believe them when they tell us to stay locked down indefinitely. The #staythefuckhome crowd is about to get overrun come Memorial Day.

You missed one. When Reade’s mother called Larry King she complained about her daughter not filing a complaint immediately “out of respect” for the senator. The discussion on Larry King was how do you handle the situation when a good person steps out of line. The “Larry King Live” segment that aired on August 11, 1993, on CNN (which has suspiciously pulled the segement), an unnamed woman calls in to the show with her location identified on the screen as San Luis Obispo, California. The show was about the cutthroat nature of Washington, DC, politics and media. “Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington?” she asks. “My daughter has just left there after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have… Read more »

The Democrats are eating their own!!! NYT Sunday Op/Ed: “In the op-ed, titled “Democrats, It’s Time to Consider a Plan B,” Elizabeth Bruenig argues: I have my own impressions regarding Ms. Reade’s allegations, but no one — save Ms. Reade and Mr. Biden — knows with certainty whether her claims are true. What I can assert with firm conviction is that Democrats ought to start considering a backup plan for 2020. Ms. Reade’s account is not nearly as incredible as some have argued. In the course of my reporting, I have worked closely with many survivors of sexual assault. It isn’t unusual, in my experience, for survivors to exhibit behavior that seems unstable or erratic to others. They may initially disclose to investigators or journalists only a fragment of what happened, and then reveal more over time — some even falsely recant, either because… Read more »

Reminds me of Flip Wilson, “ The devil made me do it”. While walking down the street one day a senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies. The soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance. “Welcome to Heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.” “No problem, just let me in,” says the senator . “Well, I’d like to but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.” “Really, I’ve made up my mind.

While we’re on the Biden subject, let’s talk Quid Pro Joe! He admitted to extorting the Ukraine, on film, to benefit his Son Hunter. Much the same went on with the Chi-Coms, Joe and Hunter. Where is the investigations/outrage? 4 years and no dirt on Trump, but Ole Joe was doing much worse. There is also dirt on Ukraine concerning Kerry, Pelousey and other current/ex members of the Washington Crime Cartel. Media has no interest, WHY? Hunter claims he is “broke”, after getting MANY millions from the Ukranine and Chi-Coms. And Joe’s family has great “family values”. Hunter married his brother’s widow, cheated on her with a stripper, and knocked her up. Hunter refuses to pay the child/stripper child support, so you and me taxpayers, are buying formula and diapers for Joe’s grandchildren. You’d think Joe would step up as a Grandaddy? NOPE!!!

So if Trumps new estimate of 3000 people dying each day by June 1st it might be a good idea for cities to stock up on body bags now.. the supply and demand factor will triple the price. by the way, how many can the local crematories do in a day. They have like three week back logs in some places.

So the working white house theory seems to be that every elderly virus death is one less person soaking up Medicare and social security. And the savings can be used to pay for the wall since the Mexican government has been late on its payments.
It may also help offset some of the billions of dollars given as stimulus money to oil companies and airlines both of which have been making enormous profits for years.

The only good thing about this medically, socially, politically, induced shutdown is lots of time to do useless home issues. For us its emptying drawers that don’t need cleaning. One interesting item was found in a long-discarded bureau. It’s a sports story by the much-missed Brian Sullivan dated December 25, 2005. The story is about Berkshire County Hall of Fame Inductees and one name (you don’t know) caught my eye. The name is Stan Zeleski, a halfback from Dalton. He was tall and lean, fast and shifty, hard-hitting, tough as they come. One of the best. You don’t hear about him or know who he is because he broke his leg in a baseball game.

Dan, I remember it, too. A crying shame these young talented athletes were injured and cut short of potential greatness. Tony C. may have been another Ted Williams or Joe DiMaggio. He was that good and had the ability. An errant fastball to his head ended the potential for greatness. How about Herb Score? A left-handed fastball pitcher with much potential for greatness. A line drive to his head ended those dreams. Another crying shame. How good a football player could Stan Zaleski have been? We’ll never know because of the injury he received playing high school baseball. In my opinion this kid had it all and would have been a college football star. Yes, another crying shame.

Dan, Nice to know I’m still remembered. My Colgate days are of fond memories. Colgate football was top notch then. Played against Syracuse’s Jim Brown from freshman to senior year. Then in my senior year played against Army’s Pete Dawkins who went on to win the Heisman Trophy his senior year. He was a sophomore then. On Army’s team that year was Don Hollander who made an all-American end position. They beat us in a memorable shootout 55 to 48. Hollander was killed in Vietnam and West Point has honored him naming their field house “The Don Hollander Field House”. Continuing my Colgate thoughts our 1955 baseball team beat Penn State to earn a spot to the college world series at Omaha, Nebraska. We lost our first game to Wake Forest 1 – 0.

Larry Bossidy did pitch that game. It was a fabulous 9 inning performance. Score was 0-0 in the 6th and the rains came. Almost an hour passed before play was resumed. In the 7th Wake Forest scored a run, and that was it. We did have a couple of scoring opportunities with men and second or third with one out. We didn’t get the clutch hit. Two days later we beat So. Cal 6 – 4. Larry came in for relief and saved the game for us. The following day we lost to Oklahoma A&M and 2 losses were on our way home. It certainly was a consolation that thanks to us So. Cal. went home before we did. The year was 1955 and it was Colgate’s best year in its baseball history. Two Pittsfield guys were there. Isn’t that something?

Hi SJ, I have to chip in on this one. Paul Pierce was a terrific hitter. If memory serves me correctly he was a lefty who nicely complimented Tom Grieve. I always thought Paul was as good a hitter as Tom. Wasn’t this their state championship team? I do have to question your mentioning Paul’s home run hit going over the railroad tracks. I know he could hit but, over the right-field trees and continuing over the tracks? Babe Ruth could not have hit that far. It would have to be about 800 feet. Paul could hit but there are limits. I enjoyed reading your piece.

Zippy, Good names, all of them terrific athletes. You mentioned St. Joe players. I have to add one more. Fred Broaderick was a 3 sport star from the early 50’s. He’s an old neighborhood buddy from the Crescent Creamery parking lot sandlot days. A foul ball went over a banking onto the railroad tracks. Imagine kids nowadays playing on a field like that. It would be beneath them. No uniforms either. In my opinion, if one mentions great ones from St. Joseph High School Fred Broaderick has to be among them.

The ball was hit on a line straight shot center field ended up in the brook,the kid was literally sitting on the bench before it came back to the infield. I remember it because a friend of mine at the time took me to the game to see his kid play and I didn’t know Pat was the coach of the other team. That ball had to travel over five hundred feet .

Also,I saw Tommy Grieve hit one out straight center field at Wahconah Park from the backstop during practice. Another home run that comes to mind was Paul Pierce again hitting one over the light tower at Wahconah in high school.

Rumor also had it the-guys zipper was down,he was asleep, and some youngster took the ball from his lap.

I have to weigh in here, even if I age myself. I saw Dale Long and Al Rosen at Wahconah Park hit memorable homers over the lights.

Let’s remember a local high school kid who made history as the first non-pro to hit one out of Wahconah. It was Bobby Hays from St. Joe’s. He did it playing for St. Joe’s (may have been 1948) and hit a homer during a regularly scheduled game.
His brother Bus was an outstanding PHS basketball player.

Local Berkshire County politicians like Pignatelli want to reopen Berkshire County soon ahead of the Boston area, but Charlie Baker said he does not agree saying that in a state as small as ours, infected people from the Middle and Eastern part of the state could infect the Berkshires. I agree since our local politicians are most concerned about getting the tourism season started here. Is that a good idea though? To pour in possibly infected tourists to get locals sick? If the Berkshires economy didn’t rely so heavily on tourism, this wouldn’t be an issue, but poor planning local politicians have made this an issue and now want locals to live with the uncertainty of allowing lots of tourists here during a pandemic?

I agree that local politicians are trying to get the Berkshires open for tourism and I think that is a huge mistake. Charlie Baker agrees and said he will not open some parts of the state before others since Berkshires politicians were pushing for that since they turned the Berkshires into a tourist destination rather than trying to get real jobs here. Charlie Baker said infected people from the middle and Eastern part of the state could raise infection rates in the Western part if he did that. We have a lot fewer hospitals here than in Boston. Our local politicians need to listen to Charlie Baker.

They know many might not travel period for fear ( those that might have inquired about refunds/cancellation policies) they are aware many will be traveling in from NYC and Boston as an example and just wont go to a larger gathering either out of intelligence or fear. The local count weighs little in the equation Does anyone really think it would not look as if they were tone deaf to their clientele? What would that do to donations to these places?
