PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY OCT. 26, 2020) — Donald Trump and Joe Biden both did what they wanted to do in the final debate. Trump came off as measured, and Biden held serve. Was it enough?

Was it enough for the President to reclaim the presidential high ground? Was it enough for Biden’s strategy of playing not to lose?

THE PLANET saw (a) Trump righting the ship as the candidates head into the campaign’s final days and (b) Biden committing two major gaffes.

Biden Gaffe 1, Immigration — Moderator Kristen Welker noted that in the eight years of the Obama-Biden Administration, immigration “had been a key promise” but that the Administration “presided over record deportations, as well as family detentions at the border before changing course.” What would be different this time around, she asked the former Vice President, if he should win. Biden answered by throwing Obama in front of a speeding subway train.

“Because we made a mistake made,” Biden said. “It took too long to get it right. Took too long to get it right. I’ll be President of the United States, not Vice President of the United States.” Biden gave Obama the Moe Howard treatment.

This angered Democrat shot-callers, confused his base, P’d-off Obama, and delighted Republicans.

Biden Gaffe 2, Oil — Uncle Joe said that if he is elected president, he will destroy the oil industry. You can imagine how that’s playing in Pennsylvania, Texas, Oklahoma, and other oil states. This was Biden’s bone-toss to Green New Deal zealots. Replace oil, great. With what? Biden didn’t say.

“One of the most stunning moments last night was when Joe Biden admitted that he wants to abolish the oil industry,” Trump said after their final face-to-face clash in Tennessee.

“I said, ‘Whoa this is the big point of the evening!’ Remember, I said, ‘Well, you want to get rid of oil and gas?” Trump said, recounting the debate stage exchange.

“‘Yeah, well, we wanna phase it out,’” he went on, imitating Biden. “I said, ‘Thank you! Texas, are you watching? Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Ohio, are you watching?'”

Biden claimed during debate one in Ohio that he doesn’t support the Green New Deal, although his website calls it a “crucial framework” for fighting climate change. Go figure.

The former veep has appointed New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a key sponsor of the bill, to be co-chair of his climate change panel.

Speaking of energy, what’s Biden’s position on fracking. Trump’s clear: Keep it. Biden? He’s for it then he’s against it then he’s for it then he’s against it.

It generally wasn’t a good night for Uncle Joe. He lied on his characterization of Trump’s position on the payroll tax, and, ignoring the own record, denied past opposition to fracking. Trump was his usual off-the-cuff self, while Biden, who had obviously rehearsed with practice debates, had an ample supply of precast zingers. None hit their mark, save for, “We’ve learned to die” not live with COVID.” The ex-VP also drew criticism for checking his watch, one of theeeeee things you don’t do in a debate. George Bush I did it against Bill Clinton and paid a price. Watch checking conveys that you’re not taking the event seriously, you’re distracted, or, in Joe’s case, maybe you’re losing steam and wanting it to be over.

The final statements did well in summing up the two candidates. Trump stressed the importance of the economy and protecting America’s 401Ks. Biden talked about saving “America’s soul” and “treating people with dignity.”

The words sooth, but what do they mean? They are vague and safe. How can the President of the United States — or any one person — change people’s hearts, especially in this time of total demarcation?

O that it were.

Hang on, America. Only eight shopping days left to Election Day.

Only thing is – the Chinese communist party is pretty capitalistic. I honestly don’t know what the Fox viewers are talking about when they talk of China and communism or Marxism – they should be saying Norway and communism. Or Germany and socialism. I rather like the Russians I know but their society worships money. And it’s a survival of the fittest society. The weak already died out in some purge 50 years ago.

Hello Glenn M. Heller,

I watched the entire 38 minutes and 12 seconds of Rudy Giuliani’s YouTube hit piece video on the Biden Crime Family, which is worth tens of millions of dollars. Hunter Biden is a crack cocaine addict. He made tens of millions of dollars overseas. He spent his money on young women who were sex workers and on alcohol and drugs. Hunter Biden is a scumbag. His laptop hard drive only proves what we already know. The news about Hunter Biden and the Biden Crime Family has been out there for a long time now. Rudy Giuliani is exploiting it all as a Trump campaign operative. Rudy Giuliani has sat on this information for a long time, and his timing is called Trump’s “October Surprise”.

You know full well that Trump refuses to release his tax returns to the public. What is Trump hiding? Why has so many of Trump’s associates been indicted and jailed? Are they all fall guys for Donald Trump? Trump had love affairs with sex workers, too. Trump paid a porn star and a Playboy model to stay silent about their love affairs with him while he was married to Melania. Trump openly cheated on all three of his wives, and his daughter Tiffany Trump was conceived out of wedlock with Marla Maples.

In closing, Rudy Giuliani should give one of his advertisers cigar boxes to Bill Clinton, who put a cigar in Monica Lewinsky’s vagina and then smoked his cigar while Monica Lewinsky was giving him a blow job in the Oral Orifice (Oval Office). My final point is that most politicians are sleazy wheeler dealers who enjoy profiting off of making a career in high political office and having sex with young women who fall for their dirt-bag ways.

Best wishes,

Jonathan A. Melle

Marxist Melle,
No one cares about Trump’s tax returns being released, except for you & rabid followers of CNN. Even if Trump could release them, they would be too complex for you & me to understand, as Trump has multiple properties & businesses. He is under audit by the IRS – let them do their job.

Your man Biden is up to his eyeballs in guano. Chronic lying, money laundering, adultery, bribery, alleged pedophilia etc etc…..it’s all being revealed. And wait till his daughter’s diary entries hit the fan!

My advice is to turn off the Clinton News Network and do your own research. National File is releasing a lot of info. Seek the truth!

You’re right except you have the wrong country. China is hoping that all the chaos put on our country by the Marxists with the phony Russian collusion hoax and the impeachment and finally their sending over the virus, will weaken America so China becomes the #1 power. Biden is their man who will help them do this because Biden’s family was paid off by China to influence our policies in this country. Biden has said repeatedly he doesn’t take seriously the threat posed by China and that China wants to “eat our lunch” as he calls it. “C’mon man” is his response.

Dan, the big “division” started with Sotero and his AG Holder. Willie Clinton started the fermentation.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” –

Great analysis Dan.
What I would add is that Joe Biden warned of a “dark winter” (speaking of covid) while Trump had a positive encouraging message of defeating the virus. Biden sees the future of America in a negative light while Trump looks forward to making America great yet again.
Two completely opposite viewpoints about our country.

There is so little interest in the issues of this election that it’s shocking. All I hear is about personality. So if the country turns Marxist by somebody who you think has a good personality, that’s ok? The Green New Deal would be the most expensive program in the history of the country, but after AOC announcing it, it’s become shrouded in secrecy since many people thought it was very extreme. Biden will not be pinned down on specifics although getting rid of oil is very telling and right in line with AOC’s Green New Deal. This deal would have unbelievable effects on the country, but nobody will discuss it in any detail.

Trump hasn’t talked enough about policy, or at least I haven’t heard it. He’s allowed this thing to devolve into a referendum on him and his personality.

Once again I state: I can’t see either candidate winning.

Trump for the incessant attacks on him for five years, the leftist lies, “journalist” lies, and the penchant of many to swallow this stuff whole.

Biden for having absolutely nothing to offer, being 98 years old (or looking, acting, and talking like it), and the leftist horror that will ensure if he wins.

I did finally hear a clip of Trump stating his policies and accomplishments in a campaign rally yesterday, possibly only because Limbaugh JIPed it. Lamestream media wouldn’t do that.

And, of course, Don Giuseppe can’t talk about anything. “What flavor did you get?”

I’m waiting for the media minions to ask the really hard questions, such as “Boxers or briefs?”

I won’t belabor the point of reading comprehension.

Johnny, what did ole Joe DEMentia have to say about his Son, Hunter during his 60 minutes interview?

A lot of unsavory things have come to light in the past week about the WHOLE Biden family, and a bunch of their friends.

For some reason FBI director Wright knew about all this since last year, right before Pelousey started the impeachment witch hunt. But Wright chose to ignore the whole sordid mess and associated crimes, why is that?

The MSM is doing the same, Facebook and Twitter have censored any mention of the materials found on Hunter Biden’s laptop. They went so far as to censor the New York Post.

What do Biden, Pelousey, Kerry and Romney, son’s, all have in common? All are on board of directors for energy companies doing business in Ukraine.

” I said ‘ You’re not getting the 1.5 billion’, I’m going to be leaving here, I think it was in about 6 hours. I looked at them and said: ‘ I’m leaving here in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money’ ”

President Trump will leave office if he loses in a fair election. The ones who won’t be leaving are the radical left who, if given the chance, will do everything to ensure that a Republican NEVER wins an election in this country again by adding states, getting rid of the electoral college, and packing the courts. The radical left wants one party rule. They want total control.

Hey if you need some free money, come on down, it’s let’s make a deal week in Pittsfield!
Need some cash to “repair” your section 8 rentals? Come on down! What to be a slumlord millionaire? Come on down? Need $45k for your one “they” DJ business? Come on down!
Eddie Munster is ready to make you a $30k millionaire just like him!

In other more serious news the Berkshires Eagle is planning another series of layoffs (shhhhh it’s a secret) they are looking for unpaid volunteer content contributors. Also a bunch of cars were broken into but since that’s not on the list of vibrant and dynamic, we don’t talk about it.
We really aren’t following up at all on the homeless, there’s been no real progress. That legal help from the DA’s office turned out to be a hollow promise because it was illegal to do.
They tried blowing out the sprinkler pipes at the baseball field, broke some of the pipes.
We built a parklet in front of Flavors but it’s closing, a bad idea a little too late.
There were a number of ballots and some mail found in a dumpster, I’m sure someone will figure it out someday.

And remember, if you don’t like what someone says, sue them! It makes you look smarter and cooler to your clients!

Great post, so much cover-up most likely demanded by the Mayor. Ever notice as soon as there is one comment on the BB against the Mayor, comments are immediately shut down. Does she pay them to do that? Large cities around the Pitts (Albany & Springfield) and towns all around us are doing everything in their power to cut budgets due to the pandemic but our Mayor and Eddie Munster feel they can give out a half a million to fix a few homes? Meanwhile, local restaurants, stores and small businesses are closing for good on a daily basis. This half a million could have helped these businesses, or draw new business in. Where does someone in Pittsfield buy shoes or clothes, especially folks that can’t afford the likes of Steve Valenti, that is if you dare to venture onto the new vibrant North Street puzzle? If Eddie Munster is so darn adept a budgeting, why have none of these large cities offered him a job? I sincerely hope this latest request gets voted down, but unfortunately as the Mayor stated, she has a CC that will do what ever she asks. This request for monies should be put out to a vote of the taxpayers as we can’t rely on our elected city councilors voting for what the taxpayers want, they just do what the Mayor says. Very reason the whole city is such a mess. How many times do the City Councilors have to be reminded they work for the taxpayers NOT the Mayor. Are they all that ignorant and stupid that they can’t comprehend that still? Believe they are and that is why they continue to hide behind ZOOM.

First, saying Biden lied as a Trump backer is more than a little disingenuous, isn’t it? The news story in This case would be if Trump told the truth…about anything. Second, the oil industry today is like the coal industry 100 or so years ago. It’s dirty, polluting and ultimately NEEDS to be phased out, just as Biden said. 100 years from now there will still be a fossil fuel Industy, just as there is still a coal industry today, just much smaller and with much less dependence on it. Phasing it our is simply logical and to maintain otherwise is foolish. Third, I didn’t realize until now that Pat is a Commie Russian active, trying to push all the blame onto China!

True, but so many of these voters are just looking for what big government can do for them in the short term. They are NOT looking at the big picture when serious problems will arise from these radicals on the far left and it won’t take long for the negative consequences to be revealed when you give your power over to big government, expect serious negative consequences. China wants to bring down our country using these Marxist ideas.

Agreed. Oil is not the future. Recognizing that and moving with the times is not stupid, it’s smart. It will happen over decades not months. No need for oil workers to panic anytime soon, but like coal, it will diminish over time. And if we were to ignore that fact while the rest of the world moves on and creates other renewable forms of energy, we will be left behind. Sticking one’s head in the sand and ignoring reality is not a wise strategy. Something anyone can learn from looking at how the Trump administration has handle the Corona virus.

This is so fitting that I saw this and had to post it. Our government and those in it are the people’s worst threat than any other.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

Perhaps even more relevant here is the old Latin saying, “Omnia venalia Romae,” “Everything is for sale in Rome.”

Which seems to describe Don Giuseppe Bidenaroni and the rest of the crime family very well.

You think that $3.5 mill and $1.5 bill might buy something in DC if Biden wins?

Jokey B apparently thinks he’s running against “George Ah.”

Limbaugh’s best show in a while today, as I can tell from the transcripts.

He lays it all out there about the election–much of which I’ve been saying in here for a while.

This segment a good place to start:

https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2020/10/26/what-to-look-for-in-the-next-few-days/

“I mean, there’s been one lie after the other. In fact, in four years, there hasn’t been a single good thing reported about Donald Trump, not a single positive thing. Stop and think of that. Those of you who are on the fence out there, if there are any of you, if you can’t make up your mind, if something’s odd, remind yourself of this. There hasn’t been one positive thing reported about President Donald Trump in a four-year span of time. It is incredible. There’s never been anything like it.”

He didn’t come and say that in so many words, I don’t think.

“The days when I thought I did not have a death sentence are over.”

Which means he does now think he has a death sentence.

Limbaugh’s been through a few rounds of chemo treatments for lung cancer (keep smoking out there, y’all). First one or two treatments didn’t go well, then one or two worked, and then now another setback.

He describes it that he was rounding second on his way to third, but had to get back to second real quick. (Home being full recovery.) So he’s still alive, with a (slim?) chance to get home.

But I also thinks he’s been there before

So what is missing in your understanding of this virus Pat? Younger people who have a high rate of success in fighting the virus, also have a high rate of transmitting it to others. Many times they are asymptomatic and no one suspects them of being carriers and they let their guard down. They are the trojan horse.
Until this country gets very strict (like China) this virus will be with us. Americans are too spoiled, bratty and ignorant to accept the hardships that come with a wholesale shutdown. So we will all pay a heavy long term price because there is no other way unless a super vaccine comes about. And that is a really iffy scenario.

The idea of kids being super spreaders has not been verified. That was considered back in March, but the disease wasn’t spreading in the schools. It would make more sense for older adults to be allowed to work from home if that is possible than for younger people to stay home. Herd immunity can work with younger people as more and more doctors are now saying.

First off, I don’t ever want you as my nurse. You are not open minded at all nor do you want to listen to the opinions of others. Secondly, we must protect the most vulnerable and that is 55 and over. Kids can be kept away from older relatives. Most parents of young children are under 55 so households with young people will be safe even if a young child does get the virus. People under 55 will be able to effectively fight it off. Flu kills people every year, but we don’t shut down our society. China is learning from our responses and if they see how effectively they can shut down a society and spread fear, they and other countries will try using these bio-weapons again.

C’mon, man, give TSC some credit. The post was actually passably written and coherent, even with the crack about Marxism and Fox viewers.

But “Marxist” is often correct as to the granddaddy of these leftist ideas.

The key term and concept for all things Marx is “oppression.” If you ain’t rich, basically bourgeois, then you’re oppressed, unless you’re a white straight male.

Historically and currently oppressed are blacks, latinx, women, Third-Worlders, LGBTQXYZ, Native Americans, Aleuts, all indigenous peoples, non-white children, Muslims, Jews, Cubs fans. I might have missed a couple.

“Multiculturalism” I like to call “Marxiculturalism”–it covers all the oppressed.

Now, used to be in this country that everyone agreed on the essentially Lockean founding of the United States–individuals are primary and have certain inalienable rights; you know this drill, I hope.

The political differences were mainly one of degree–more individual freedom vs. a little less, or maybe more towards the community/state, or however you want to express that, a little more taxation vs. a little less, more money for defense or a little less.

Everyone agreed that the US Constitution and the founding of our country were pretty good things, things worth fighting and dying for. Everyone agreed on the ends, but argued over the means to get the best society, more just, more equal, freer.

Once you say no, the founding is unjust, fundamentally flawed, based on slavery, oppression of women and Jets fans, etc., then what do you replace it with?

Enter Herr Marx in prime position.

Historic day yesterday for Amy Coney Barrett and the country. A fine, highly accomplished woman, mother of seven, top of her class law student, law professor, federal judge, and now SCOTUS justice.

What a great day for women and equal rights. Can attain any status they want. Break the glass ceiling. Gain positions of authority in our society. Girl power. Feminism on steroids.

And the Lamestream media spends less than a minute on the vote and swearing in, if they even mentioned it.

Wrong kind of woman, I guess. Just as Justice Thomas is the wrong kind of black guy.

So what is it really about, lefties? Equal rights and all that mess?

Nope.

All about leftist ideology.
