PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY. FEB. 1, 2021) — One of the areas Syracuse Joe Biden and the Democrats hammered President Trump was Trump’s handing of the pandemic. Biden called it “dismal” and promised to hit Day One with a plan ready to go and go smoothly.

The President did come in with a 200-page book pertaining to COVID-19. Promise made, promise kept. As he probably knew would happen but wouldn’t dare admit in the campaign, the plan has run aground. It reminds THE PLANET of boxer Mike Tyson’s quote: “Everybody’s got a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Perhaps the biggest concern are missing doses of vaccine. More than 20 million doses have vanished, unaccounted for and no trace. That’s not in Biden’s playbook. The Administration blames part of the loss on “lags in data reporting,” but those familiar with the supply-line logistics say this could only account for 2 million doses, max. Where are the other 18 million?

It doesn’t take Mickey Spillane to suspect (and likely find) organized crime’s fingerprints. On the black market, doses go for anywhere from $200 to $1000. This compares with the actual cost of the vaccine, which ranges from $3 to $37 dollars, depending on the manufacturer and dose. For example, Moderna’s two-dose system ranges from $32 to $37. If only 10% of the 20 million missing doses have been cornered by the black market that’s two million times the going price. Not a bad haul.

For Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski, the Administration said the federal government would pick up all costs. It’s what Big Government calls “free.” That’s not how it’s turning out. From abc7news: “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website’s FAQ section says everyone gets the vaccine at ‘no cost,’ but keep reading deeper and you’ll find this: ‘providers will be able to charge’ for their services. Digging through government web pages, it appears health insurance companies will be required to pay for vaccine expenses picked up by the federal government.”

Hang on to your wallets.

Another issues has been sporadic reports of placebos in the supply chain. There are a number of ways this could happen, but it essentially works like it does with all counterfeit goods such as the cheap knock-offs of Gucci, Luis Vitton, and Rolex. You manufacture, package it so that it looks like the original’s twin, and rake in the profits.

Another mystery relates to the national stockpile of the vaccine. Wire reports say the supply is “almost empty.” Where did it go? Then there are the new and troubling mutations of the virus. New strains pop up, and it’s too early for science to determine the level of risk. Researchers fear a mutation that will prove resistant to the current vaccine — and perhaps all vaccines.

The waiting lists? Don’t ask. Politicians, jailbirds, smokers, and hospital board members and their families got it first. The elderly? The sick? Grab a ticket and wait for your number to be called — and make yourself comfortable.

Syracuse Joe promised daily briefings on the pandemic to keep the process open and transparent. While the meetings have happened, they have been vague and lacking specifics. Biden’s C-19 czar, Jeff Zients, is not a doctor or a scientist. He was President Obama’s assistant director for economic policy. The updates haven’t shared details of what’s going on, and we know where the devil usually hides. They make fuzzy references to things “not going as well” but leave America in the dark about what, specifically, are the problems and how serious. Zients, a “big picture” guy, seems to have little knowledge of how the insanely complex distribution channels work for getting the vaccine into the right arms.

None of this bodes well.

A profile by ABC News two days before the inauguration shared this tidbit: “The logistical hurdles of ending the pandemic will undoubtedly be the largest challenge of his career, which Zients faces with no direct experience in public health. As a product of elite private schools with wealthy friends, his actions will be closely watched by advocacy groups who say the pandemic response must address decades-long health disparities seen in Hispanic and Black communities.”

This all comes as Bay State Gov. Charlie Baker opened up the known hot spots to the public again, caving in to pressure from special interest. This type of spineless action, combined with the stupidity of so many people, probably means the virus will be with us for a long time to come.

Feel as you will about the soon-to-be impeached ex-president, but you can’t deny Trump cut the red tape to enable the development of the vaccine in record time. What would have normally taken years, perhaps a decade, was accomplished in seven months.

Now it looks like we’ve lost those seven months in just one.

THE PLANET hopes we are wrong.

So much politics involved with the handling of this virus that it boggles the mind. Holding off the life saving monoclonal antibodies being available for emergency use until AFTER the election and making sure that even doctors didn’t know how well they worked against the virus due to a lack a reporting about their potential to stop the virus from killing our elderly. States like California now opening many of their businesses even with the virus raging in that state because the election is over. Same with Charlie Baker opening hot spots in Massachusetts while schools remain closed. Children are not eligible to get the vaccines because it was never tested on children, but some teachers are refusing to return to the classroom until the children are vaccinated. They tell us to listen to the science, but don’t they know the science? That children can’t receive this vaccine?

Our politicians are enriching themselves and their wealthy donors on Beacon Hill and Capitol Hill, respectively. Dan Bosley, Peter Larkin, Stan Rosenberg, and many other retired Beacon Hill lawmakers are still there as registered lobbyists who all make over 6-figure per year salaries on top of their taxpayer-funded state pensions and public perks. Smitty Pignatelli has been on Beacon Hill for nearly 2 decades now, and his public record shows him to only care about enriching himself by serving the state leaders with banal loyalty who shut We the People out of Beacon Hill’s legislative deliberations.

Mayor Linda Tyer is going to give her Pittsfield politics “State of the City” address at 12-noon on Monday, February 1st, 2021. What is she going to say to the poor and suffering people of her community? “I am your Mayor who lives in a wealthy Gated Community very close to Hancock. Many local people died in Pittsfield’s nursing home COVID-19 debacle. I took zero responsibility. Instead, I blamed the little guys for not following pandemic guidelines. My chief bureaucrat, Matt Kerwood, sits on a +$10 million slush fund, while my municipal administration has passed record city and school budgets, along with the hundreds of millions of dollars in public debts and other liabilities that Pittsfield hides through Matt Kerwood’s creative accounting schemes. Some of Pittsfield’s inner-city public schools are ranked at Level 5, which is the worst possible ranking, but I plan to ask city taxpayers to plan for future tax and fee increases. Pittsfield is always in the top 10 for violent crime in Massachusetts, according to the FBI’s annual reports. Pittsfield is one of the most economically unequal communities in the state and nation, and our downtown former business district is now known as Social Services Alley. Lastly, when I retire someday in the future, I will be receiving a 6-figure taxpayer-funded city pension.”

“PAC-Man” Richie Neal is the WORST Member of U.S. Congress for serving corporate K Street lobbyist firms instead of We the People. President Joe Biden’s troubled son Hunter Biden is being investigated by federal law enforcement for his lucrative business dealings with adversarial foreign countries such as Russia and China, along with his alleged money laundering. The Biden “crime” family are all now worth tens of millions of dollars each without reasonable explanation. Our national debt is nearly $30 trillion, and our country is in a “K-shaped” economic recovery (for Wall Street) and recession (for Main Street).

Remember how Hitler rose to power in Germany? The people were scared because Germany was experiencing hyper-inflation and mass unemployment. Hitler promised the people of Germany that Communism and Capitalism would not do in the people of Germany, but the people did not understand that Hitler stood for fascism, violent racism (the Holocaust), and war. I believe we are in a similar situation now. Our political Salons are enriching themselves and shutting We the People out of government.

People are now in a mental health crisis where we are scared of our politicians who are letting us starve and die of COVID-19, while the political Salons are getting even richer and more powerful (K-shaped political economics) at our expense than before the COVID-19 pandemic. In closing, I wish we lived in a real democracy where We the People elected good politicians who respected the common people instead of cashing in off us!

Trump dropped the ball from day one on this virus. First he tried to hid it because he didn’t want to cause a panic. Then he said it was under control and going away. Then he mocked people who wore a mask. Then he claimed to be smarter than scientists like Dr. Fauci. Then he said he had the vaccine all ready to go, Operation Warpspeed, to be handled by the military. Then he decided that golfing was more important than making this virus a top priority, meanwhile we were having a 9-11 everyday with 3000 people a day dying. This country is at war with a virus, he then decides to leave it up to the states to win the war. The one time you actually want the federal government to take control of something they don’t. Israel implemented a vaccine program where they started with elderly people and went down the line by age, 70’s 60’s etc. Right now they are in the 40’s and expect the whole country to be done in July. Now before all you Trumpanzes get your panties in a bunch, I know you can’t put all the blame on him. However, his greatest mistake of his presidency is that he didn’t make this virus a top priority, and didn’t take control of this this from day and be the leader of the nation he is suppose to be. Now 2020 stands as the worst economy in 75 years.

President Trump was mocked from the very beginning of this virus outbreak by being called a racist when he shut off travel from first China and then Europe. Now Biden is also shutting down some travel, but no cries of racist are heard from the Democrats and media. There were daily updates/news conferences from President Trump on this virus, but zero news conferences from either Biden or the CDC on this virus now. Mask wearing has done nothing for California and they were one of the first states that pushed it. Same with Massachusetts. Here in Pittsfield, everyone wears a mask, but that hasn’t stopped the high rate of death of the elderly in our nursing homes. Getting therapeutics that worked would have saved our elderly, but the CDC and news media made that political so our elderly died due to politics.

To say masks do nothing to stop the spread is irresponsible and this is why we have a pandemic out of control. The Trump administration has spent $15 billion on a border wall but decided against spending money to ensure a larger supply of vaccines would be available to protects millions of Americans. They declined repeated offers from Pfizer to lock in hundreds of millions of additional vaccines. At the same time they moved forward as fast as they could to buy land and pay contractors to build a southern wall that analysts view as “unlikely to reduce illegal immigration or save any American lives”. A wall, by the way, Trump said that Mexico would pay for.

We are wearing masks in Pittsfield, at least most of us are, except for the politicians, but that didn’t save our elderly. We sacrificed seeing our elderly for almost a year during a time when they really would have loved to see and be hugged by their family, but many of our relatives died anyway. For those of us who lost elderly loved ones, it’s like we did it for nothing. They were doomed to die from this virus. The nursing homes couldn’t keep out the virus. The hospitals didn’t have the lifesaving antibodies because the CDC wasn’t on the ball and wasn’t prepared for the 2nd wave of the virus due to politicians on the left and Democrats in the CDC holding back the antibodies until after the election. So disgusting.

Medical ships were brought in (which Governor Cuomo ignored and sent the sick elderly back to nursing homes to infect other patients, almost like they were trying to spread the virus) and field hospital were created by President Trump with thousands of beds, ventilators were put into mass production so that we will never have a shortage again as we did during the Obama years, but still the far leftists have NOTHING good to say about President Trump fighting against the virus. Not even a thank you for the unprecedented speed of getting a vaccine for the virus which it seems the Biden administration is now doing a poor job of distributing it to the country (is this to continue to make President Trump look bad at the expense of our elderly?)

Trump had months and months for the federal government to plan a cohesive strategy to vaccinate the masses. I’ll give him credit for Operation Warp Speed, just like other European Nations quickly rolled out a vaccine, but having a vaccine does no good without a plan to distribute it. And now, after Biden is on the job 11 days you want to blame him for the poor job of distributing the vaccine? Hell, they’re still looking for it because the Trump crew lost track of it. You are borderline delusional.

What a Debbie Downer way to start the week. Didn’t you read our Governor’s budget where he was surprised he didn’t have to raise taxes because the cost of MA Health declined, or in government speak didn’t rise as much as they thought. Do you think this had something to do with all the elderly, who are on MA Health and use the healthcare system more, passed away due to the China Flu? Seems like a trial run for government healthcare!!

It appears Harrington thinks all judges are racist, too. They are the ones who set bail. Her evidence is badly flawed. Example: “In Berkshire County in 2015, Black defendants were detained pre-trial on five times greater bail amounts than their white counterparts.”
Someone needs to stop her nonsense and ask the right questions. How many were Berkshire residents? How many had prior records and defaults? Those factors are what determines how a judge sets bail. Not color. An impartial party has said you have a guy who needs to be held. To me, that means our cops were targeting the right people, at least in 2015. God knows what is happening now.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker failed the 78 Veterans who died of coronavirus in Holyoke Soldiers Home. I believe Baker’s failed leadership should mean that he should resign his office in disgrace. After all of the tragic deaths, along with the botched vaccination program, Baker has not yet changed anything because he is more interested in politics than governing.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo intentionally sent COVID-positive patients back to his state’s nursing homes in the early days of the pandemic. As a result, New York has a dismal record on nursing home deaths, even with a reporting system that doesn’t include LTCF (long-term care facilities) residents who die in hospitals in their totals. New York State has the second-highest death rate per capita in the country

Does it surprise you that state governments put convicted felons in state prisons first to receive vaccinations for COVID-19, while Veterans, seniors, and other at risk law-abiding citizens are still dying in large numbers? If you are an illegal immigrant, you are put ahead of Veterans, seniors, and other law-abiding citizens who are struggling to survive during the “K-shaped” economic recovery (for Wall Street, K Street, ruling elites) or recession (for Main Street). What happened to our country?

Was there some reason they needed to let so many elderly die? Is this to make way for the new government paid healthcare and they knew they couldn’t afford to pay for healthcare for illegal immigrants and the upcoming elderly baby boomers? It’s a dark thought, but nothing will shock me when it comes to the current attitude of our federal and state government?

The military ship were originally intended to treat patients without COVID to make room in the hospitals for patients with COVID. That later changed and they started putting some COVID patients on the ships, but the medical ships were NEVER utilized to their full capacity. Cuomo continued to send elderly back to nursing homes to infect other elderly when he had so much room in so many other areas to put these COVID patients. It never made any sense except that they wanted a purge of the elderly to make way for aging baby boomers and illegal immigrants in the healthcare system and current elderly were simply living too long and using too many financial resources. When government foots the bill, government decides who lives and dies.

Let’s talk facts, Dan, not fiction. The Trump administration said there were “millions of doses in reserve.” Fact – there were none. As to the Biden administration’s handling of distribution of vaccines in the 12 days in office, I would refer you to the Republican governor of Arkansas’s statement that it has been terrific and seamless. So, let’s just cut out the partisan carping and crap and get on with pulling in the same direction. Leave the BS and whining to the idiots you elected in Pittsfield. If I want baloney, I’ll Tyer’s office.

The Biden administration and the states have lost or “misplaced” or destroyed by not refrigerating them properly, thousands of doses of the vaccine. President Trump wasn’t in the labs creating the vaccines so the number of doses available is the responsibility of the companies. That would be a question to ask these companies producing the vaccines.
