PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION OCT. 23-5) — Here’s an interesting column by Michael Cohen on Twitter, courtesy of The Boston Globe. It sums up his view of where the elections stands as of today. THE PLANET hopes it eases you into the weekend:

———- ooo ———-

BY MICHAEL COHEN

Election forecasters don’t often agree on much – and their disputes on social media can be intense. But there’s one area of general consensus: early voting is not predictive of what will happen on Election Day.

The reason is relatively simple: we don’t know what’s going to happen on Election Day. If tons of Democrats turn out for early voting or mail in ballots (and that’s currently happening), there’s no reason why Republicans can’t match that intensity on November 3.

Having said that, I think forecasters are slightly overstating their arguments. While it’s true that predicting the outcome of the race based on early voting is a mistake, we can still draw a few conclusions about what all those people waiting in line means.

The first and most obvious point is that early voting is off the charts. On Sunday, University of Florida professor Michael McDonald’s Elect Project database recorded 27.9 million early votes. As of this morning that number is at 45.8 million or 33.2 percent of the 2016 electorate. More than 65 percent of 2016 electorate in Texas has cast a vote and numerous states have topped the 35 percent mark. So the early voting numbers suggest that voter enthusiasm is high and turnout could reach record new levels.

That energy is more clearly evident among Democrats. As of last Sunday – and in the states that report party registration – Democrat had a 52.8 to 25.2 percent advantage. In Iowa, 44 percent of all registered Democrats have voted. Among Republicans, the number is 24 percent. In North Carolina 40 percent of registered Democrats have voted; Colorado is at 45 percent; New Jersey at 39 percent, and Nebraska at 35 percent.

Again, just because Democrats are beating a path to the polls doesn’t mean they are going to win on Election Day. But from a tactical standpoint it gives them a sizable advantage.

The first and most obvious reason is that if tens of millions of Democrats who have already voted that makes it far easier for Democratic campaigns to target those who have not yet cast a ballot. That means fewer phone calls and texts to voters; fewer rides to the polls, and a much more discrete get out the vote operation.

Second, if Republicans are relying on Election Day turnout that means they can’t afford for anything to go wrong. If there is rain or snow on November 3, which tends to deflate turnout, then the GOP could lose votes. What if there are further spikes in COVID-19 cases or what if polling stations are closed or short-handed because election workers test positive? If voters go to the polls today during early voting and there’s a long line and they don’t wait to wait (or can’t), they can come back the next day. That option won’t exist on Election Day. By banking so many votes ahead of time, Democrats are leaving a lot less to chance than Republicans.

The third factor is that based on current polling, Biden has a large lead over Trump, which means that the president needs to find some way to make up ground. Regular readers of this newsletter will know that I don’t expect that to happen, but the early voting numbers only heighten the challenge. If more than 30 percent of the 2016 electorate has voted – and they appear to be favoring his opponent – those are tens of millions of votes he has permanently lost any chance of winning.  Since the president is also far more susceptible to campaign miscues than Joe Biden, he runs the risk of further alienating more people before Election Day. Considering Biden has vastly more money than Trump and is dramatically out-spending the president, there’s a greater likelihood of the Democrat being able to persuade undecided voters than the incumbent. Moreover, if the polls continue to show Trump behind, on-the-fence voters may decide that it’s not worth the trouble of standing in line and potentially being exposed to a deadly virus for a guy who will likely lose anyway.

So while it’s foolish to make predictions based on early voting, one thing is clear – right now, it’s much better to be in the Biden campaign’s position than the president’s.

———- ooo ———-

Given all that, is this part one of an October surprise planned by Team Trump?

https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/10/22/npr-refuses-report-growing-biden-scandal-dont-want-waste-listeners-time/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_term=daily&utm_campaign=20201022

“A whistleblower CEO and Biden insider, Tony Bobulinski, released a public statement on Wednesday evening backing up the reporting of the New York Post from last week and claiming that he personally witnessed Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden discussing business deals with his son, Hunter Biden.

Sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that Bobulinski is the person whose allegations and inside information are the centerpiece of a forthcoming investigation by the Wall Street Journal. That Wall Street Journal story has not published yet, several days after the newspaper staff indicated to some the piece would come out—it is unclear why the Journal has not yet published—but President Donald Trump hinted on a conference call earlier this week that such a story was coming from the newspaper.

Bobulinski’s statement also seemingly authenticates at least one of the bombshell emails obtained by the New York Post,purportedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop retrieved from a computer repair store in Delaware. The statement also contradicts claims from some Democrats that a Russian disinformation campaign is at the center of the burgeoning scandal currently engulfing the Biden campaign in the final days of the election. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) was reportedly listed as one of several “key domestic contacts” for a Chinese business venture proposed in 2017 by Hunter Biden and James Biden, the son and brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, respectively. “

———- ooo ———-

With THE PLANET‘s blessings,  you may draw from that what you will.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

The Biden Crime Family will see many Congressional Investigations and Hearings if Joe Biden wins in 12 days on November 3rd, 2020. Hunter Biden is GARBAGE! Here is a list of everything we that has been reported on Hunter Biden:

Hunter Biden is a crack cocaine addict. Trump called him “a crackhead”.

Hunter Biden has at least 5 children from at least 3 different women.

Hunter Biden, now 50 years old, lied to a Judge about a college woman/stripper he got pregnant. After a court ordered paternity test, the child was fathered by none other than Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden had sex with Russian prostitutes who may have been sex trafficked.

Hunter Biden made tens of millions of dollars overseas in Ukraine, Moscow (Russia), and China by using his father’s status as a Vice President and candidate for U.S. President.

Hunter Biden’s first wife filed her divorce papers where she outlined all of Hunter Biden’s substance abuse issues and womanizing with strippers and prostitutes, while not providing sufficient funds for his immediate family.

The Biden Crime Family are millionaires despite Joe Biden being a 47 year long career politician.

Joe Biden lives in a mansion by the water in Delaware, but he never held a job in the dreaded private sector.

Is there anything else I should add?

Suburban women voters would rather vote for a radical party that has turned Marxist than vote for a man because they don’t like his personality. The radical left encourages young people to call each other comrade, they have indoctrinated the young people to believe in far left ideas and want to turn us into a socialist/communist country. These women are voting based on emotion and not logic. Thankfully many male voters are using logic to make their decision.

Little mention of the real problems presented by Biden like the Green New Deal, the real issue of China influence and Joe’s close ties to China, the left using the virus to tank the economy and gain government control and wanting to turn our country from capitalism to socialism/communism. Big issues. No pressing by the moderator on these unbelievably important issues. Total fluff.

Quid Pro Joe lied his way around the crimes he did as VP along with Hunter.

Too bad the MSM is not publishing/exposing all the Biden family manure exposed on Hunter’s laptop. Hunter might be going to the crowbar hotel for being a pedophile anyway.

https://www.wnd.com/2020/10/hunter-biden-business-partner-joe-biden-took-cut-profits/

New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin noted Joe Biden took Hunter with him on a trip to China on Air Force Two, “where Hunter landed a $1.5 billion commitment from a government-controlled Chinese bank. Then there was Hunter’s $83,000-a-month gig on the board of a Ukrainian energy company — despite his lack of experience in Ukraine or knowledge of energy.”
Advertisement – story continues below

Goodwin said it was “no coincidence that the vice president was the Obama administration’s point man in both countries. Wherever Joe went, Hunter went along, not to do good, but to do well. Very well. There were similarly lucrative deals in Russia, Romania and -Kazakhstan — that we know of.”
He said Joe Biden wasn’t just a “player,” he “had his hand out.”

Biden gets elected fuel prices will jump and people will be wearing overcoats inside their homes. Food prices too, as transportation costs will jump along with farmers costs for production.

One thing the polls do not account for is the voter intimidation currently going on. People, especially in communities that have been ravaged by protests and riots, do not in anyway want to disclose that they are voting for Trump. They run the risk of having their business, family, and reputation destroyed.

I have seen enough people on social media posting “unfriend me” or “you are a racist” if you support Trump. Democrats have made it a Trump=racist argument because they simply cannot win the argument on policy with minority communities. I never understood why minority communities are so in favor of Democrats, what have they done for you and your communities in the past 20, 30, or 40 years?

For all the liberal posters on here, can somebody tell me what Joe’s plan is and how much it will cost?

Joe does the same thing at the DNC, they attack Trump, but offer nothing. Everything Joe talked about doing for the COVID virus, is already being done.

Not to mention, Joe said when Trump shut down travel/business with China, he called it “xenophobic,” and “racist.” So, when would Joe shut travel down? Had he been President, the 2 million deaths would have come to fruition.

And swamp creatures like Mitt Romney, the Bushes, Cindy McCain, of course are for Joe. Their wealth is dependent on China and the war machine. Trump is stopping both.

Obama’s administration started the war on cops. Remember the beer summit?

And President Trump is correct, Joe had 47 years, including 8 as VP, why didn’t he do anything when he was in office? Because he a career, corrupt, politician.

Remember, “you ain’t black,” if you don’t vote for Biden. Can the Cultural Coach, Shirley Edgerton, explain to me how Joe get’s a pass on that? Isn’t that racist? Or does that only apply to those who don’t share your beliefs? Talk about hypocrisy. How much does Edgerton milk off the city?

Bidens plan is to take the pandemic seriously. He will get Personal Protective equipment for front line workers. He will release the money Trump is withholding for testing and make test available everywhere. He will allow the experts in the medical field to do their effing job. He will let the children out of their cages. He will take down the picture of naked Putin from Donald Trumps office.

Let’s address all of that JD. First, that is a Biden TV ad. Fact is, his administration has done this already: PPE equipment, rapid testing, and money to those who need it.

The money you talk about releasing, is to help build back all of the cities that continue to have riots (NYC, Portland, Seattle), because their leaders are weak and failed. They counted on President Trump to send in federal troops in hopes they’d kill a “peaceful, American, protestor.” Guess what, he didn’t take the bait, and now businesses and residents are leaving those shitholes in droves. These people have already proved they are not leaders, so why should my tax money go and bail them out?

Kids in cages. Those were built in 2014-Obama/Biden. And all those immigrants, how did they afford to walk from South America to the USA, and there all broke. I’ll make a bet with you, try to walk from MA to CA with no money. Let’s see how far you really get. But these people walked 1,000+ miles with no money-c’mon man, as Hiden-Biden would say.

Biden said last night he will grant citizenship to all 11 million illegal immigrants. Who’s going to pay for all that?

But you never answered my original question. What is Biden’s plan and how much will it cost. I don’t care about what Trump did/saw/photographed, etc. What is Joe’s plan?

Our system is working just as it is supposed to. Four years ago the vote reflected dissatisfaction with the choices presented by the party in power — the Democratic party — and so the party in power was voted out. This year the party in power — the Republic party — despite the protests to the contrary of 90% of the contributors to this blog, had a highly incompetent and corrupt standard bearer, and so he will be voted out. What happens 4 years from now will depend on whether the new standard bearer does a good job or not.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/10/new-fbi-interview-hunter-associate-whistleblower-tony-bobulinski-today/

“Tony Bobulinski came forward earlier this week after he was implicated in emails released from Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell.
Bobulinski touched on several key points in his damning memo and impromptu press conference Thursday:

  • He confirmed “the Big Guy” AKA “the chairman” referred to in Hunter’s emails is indeed Joe Biden
  • He met with Joe Biden at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles in May of 2017 to discuss Hunter’s business deals in China
  • Mr. Bobulinski said he received an email concerning allocation of equity, which says 10% held by “H” for “the Big guy” in that email there’s no question that “H” stands for Hunter, and “big guy” for his father Joe Biden and Jim for Jim Biden
  • Bobulinski confirmed that he was warned by his business partner never to mention Joe Biden was involved in Hunter’s shady business dealings over email or text (only face to face) because the Bidens (Joe, Hunter and Jim Biden) were paranoid people would find out.
  • Bobulinski said Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter Biden’s overseas grift and influence peddling scheme
  • He confirmed the Bidens went behind his back and got paid millions by the Chinese in side deals outside of their contract”

“Tony Bobulinski said he is providing all of his electronic devices and other documents related to his business dealings with Hunter Biden to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and to the FBI.”

B Eagle:
Man arrested at Pittsfield face-off between Trump supporters, There was a tense exchange and one disorderly conduct arrest at Friday’s rally in support of President Donald Trump, a weekly event that routinely draws counterprotesters.
Officers David Carusotto and Izinna Lytle were assigned to work the standout in the area of the intersection of Dalton Avenue and Cheshire Road, said Pittsfield Police Sgt. Nicholas DeSantis.
For weeks, the area along Route 8 just beyond the Allendale Shopping Plaza has been the general location of the rallies in support of the president, as well as counterdemonstrations.
Video taken at the standout showed demonstrators with Black Lives Matter signs on one side of Dalton Avenue, and demonstrators with Trump flags on the other side, in front of Kelly’s Diner.
DeSantis said the officers working the demonstration noticed a man driving west on Dalton Avenue stop in the road and got out of his vehicle at 6:18 p.m.
The man, who police later identified as John Brancazzu, 55, of Pittsfield, exchanged words with “some of the attendees” then got into a “brief physical altercation” with one of them, DeSantis said.

Shouting could be heard on the video, which showed one man involved in the encounter wearing a red hat and the other wearing a Black Lives Matter sweatshirt.
Brancazzu and the other person pushed up against one another but did not exchange blows before officers intervened and separated the two, he said.
The officers told Brancazzu to drive away, but he did not, according to DeSantis.
“Despite several directions from the officers for Mr. Brancazzu to drive away, he refused, creating a hazardous condition,” he said. “So, they made the determination to bring him under arrest.”
Brancazzu was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, DeSantis said. He was booked on the charges, then released on his own personal recognizance, and is due to be arraigned in Pittsfield District Court on Monday.
Police began sending officers to the recurring rallies after a fight broke out last month at the scene between a Trump supporter and a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt, ending in the Trump supporter lyingmotionless on the ground.

Trump supporters don’t trust mail in voting and are more likely to vote in person than Biden voters. Many Trump supporters won’t admit who they are voting for even to a pollster. The enthusiasm at Trump rallies and the crowd sizes exceed what we saw in 2016. Many Democrats have walked away from the Democrat party since 2016. It ain’t over till it’s over.

Tricia Farley Bouvier is calling on Governor Charlie Baker to reform the Massachusetts State Police after the Boston Globe reported that dozens of troopers with past incidents of illegal conduct remain on the force. Why doesn’t TFB look in the proverbial mirror instead and work to reform the do nothing state Legislature on Beacon Hill? They haven’t held a formal legislative session in nearly 3 months, which means that all of Beacon Hill’s legislative business has been done in secret. They have yet to pass a fiscal year 2021 state budget in nearly 4 months and counting. The Speaker for Life named Bob DeLeo is a de facto dictator who receives nearly unanimous votes on his legislation. TFB voted for her own 40 percent legislative pay raise in early-2017, which factors all of her pay, benefits, and compensation into her future taxpayer-funded state pension. TFB writes op-eds arguing for tax increases on the upper class residents and wealthy businesses alike to close a multi-billion-dollar state budget deficit. Yet, TFB never offers to cut her own taxpayer-funded pay, benefits and compensation she collects as a career politician. TFB blocks and/or doesn’t reply to emails or other correspondences if people don’t agree with her do nothing public record.

This is the first step toward defunding the police. TFB is firing the first warning shot. If Biden wins, the citizens lose police protection while big government uses the police to work against citizens to enforce big government’s tyrannical laws which is what happens in socialist/communist countries. TFB is the perfect politician for a tyrannical government, she answers to big government not the people.

So Tyer is at it again – she wants to give away not $250,000 but now half a million out of the GE fund to her friends and cronies! A half million, for starters! She must have friends in the window replacement/home improvement business as well. How does this benefit the taxpayers, except for a few well-connected winners? How long will she continue to sap the GE Economic Fund monies which were intended for economic development for all?

Please contact your city councilors and urge them once again to defeat this outrageous giveaway of your tax dollars!

This is absolutely unbelievable and how any elected official could support it is beyond me. My thoughts:

1.) The money is meant for economic development. Putting new roofs on 20-25 homes is hardly economic development.

2.) the money should have a long term impact on economic development. Fixing up 20- 25 homes is the equivalent of the ripple a pebble makes when thrown in the ocean.

3.) It is not the city’s responsibility to fix people’s homes for them.

4.) It is inequitable. In a city of over 40,000 people, why in the world should a handful of people benefit?

5.) If you can’t afford basic home improvements it’s time to sell your house. If we give you a free roof what happens when your furnace breaks? Some people can’t afford to keep their house. Maybe they bit off more than they could chew or maybe they’re a deadbeat. Either way, it’s not up to the city to pay their bills. This isn’t socialism. We have a free market society. You can’t afford the house you sell it. Period.

6.) What about the elderly? If you’re elderly you have enough equity that you can get a reverse mortgage and pay for your repairs. If you are elderly and have no equity, that is not the city’s problem. People of all ages mismanage their funds.

7.) The fund should not be used as a cookie jar for the Mayor’s pet projects. It should be used to advance real visions of long term economic development. Apparently they can’t come up with any.

8.) It is up to the Mayor to serve the people and make sure the fund’s money is spent wisely in the long term best interest of the residents of the city. How helping 25 families does that is anyone’s guess.

9.) If you make the weak argument that the improvements create jobs and therefore economic development, you could make the same argument for demolition crews and use the money instead to tear down abandoned blighted properties throughout the city. At least the general populace would benefit from the elimination of blight.

10.) I could keep going but you get the point. Just plain crazy!

The taxpayers are begging for a forensic audit and the mayor it hell bent on giving away the store. Of course the whole thing is set up to benefit her business friends and people connected to her political world. I know people do not like me comparing her to Trump but she operates out of the same mindset. Use other peoples money to take care of friends who will take care of her in return. When she looks in the mirror she sees Trump.
There seems nothing we can do about her and what she is doing to us. But we can warn others away from her Pittsfield domain. Anyone who moves into Pittsfield and is not on her political protection list is a fool. Homeowners could use the money she over taxes homeowners to feed and clothe their children. Her policies keep people from getting ahead. Parasites feed off of others and the hard work they do. Don’t be a victim.

Dan, the other day in response to my comments on Joe McCarthy you wrote the following:

“McCarthy was correct about security risks in the State Department, but he was wrong on the David Schine v. The U.S. Army. That was a fiasco that doomed Tail Gunner Joe.”
 
“Must watching on the Schine-Army affair is the documentary POINT OF ORDER, free on YouTube”

I watched the documentary and even though it was  heavily edited to try to make a monkey out of McCarthy the film maker failed. It showed that the democrats cared more about trying to destroy McCarthy than getting security risks out of government. The Roosevelt and Truman administrations were loaded with people on Moscow’s payroll. This was proven true when project Venona was declassified. Talk about the deep state!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venona_project

If anything McCarthy underestimated the number of Soviet spies in our government.
.

And lets remember. McCarthy was acquitted of misconduct in the Schine matter.

The very year of McCarthy censure, John F. Kennedy fiercely defended McCarthy on Soviet territory: Cambridge, Massachusetts.In response to a speakers lighthearted remark that, unlike the law school, Harvard college could be proud of never having produced either an Alger Hiss or Joe McCarthy, Kennedy erupted: “how dare you couple the name of a great American patriot with that of a traitor.”

Bobby Kennedy worked for McCarthy and Health him in such high esteem that he asked McCarthy to be godfather to his first child, Catherine Kennedy Townsend.

McCarthy was indeed a great American patriot despite what fake left wing history tells us.
