PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, ST. PATRICK’S DAY, 2021) — Shocking news.

Investigators have actually found a woman who does not claim she was sexually harassed by New York Gov. Andrew “Born on Third” Cuomo.

Stop the presses! Press the stoppers! Call the roller of fat cigars! Erin, go braless.

Cuomo’s crisis has reached fever pitch, and President Joe Biden has tossed the beleaguered governor a life saver.

THE PLANET agrees with the president. To find out why, read on.

———- ooo ———-

THE PLANET was just beginning our career at the Syracuse Post-Standard when Mario Cuomo began popping up in state dispatches. At the time, Cuomo was NY Secretary of State. And what a time it was, an era of balancing compromise and stance that elevated politics into an art, a science, and an activity that, while still marred with its share of drudgery and skulduggery, nonetheless kept the acid of personal corruption relatively manageable and, thus in a strange way, forgivable.

Mario had the reputation as a straight shooter. He played baseball as a young man, decried the move of the NFL’s New York Giants and Jets to New Jersey (becoming a Bills fan), and survived a planned Mafia hit when he visited Sicily in 1992. You could deal with a guy like that.

Son Andrew, on the other hand, came to the perch by pedigree. To increase his odds with the Democrats, he married a Kennedy, opening doors that would have been closed to 99.99999% of other with similar talents and abilities, both mediocre. Compared to his pop, Andrew lacked a certain “it.” He copied dad’s speech patterns and learned to weave carpets out of B.S., but to those who covered him, he remained dripping with mink oil.

It comes as no surprise to THE PLANET to learn that at least seven women who have had business and professional relationships with Andy claim he lechered after them — mannerisms, gropings, flirting, touching, and so on. Cuomo has denied the accusations, saying his words and gestures may have been misinterpreted.

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before.

———- ooo ———-

In a press conference Friday he said that “there are often many motivations for making an allegation, and that is why you need to know the facts before you make a decision. There are now reviews on the way. No one wants them to happen more quickly and more thoroughly than I do. As I have said before … women have a right to come forward and be heard and I encourage that fully. But I also want to be clear: There is still a question of the truth. I did not do what has been alleged. Period.”

Since the accusations, Cuomo has proven to be an albatross around the neck of prominent Democrats and to the party itself. We can partially blame Cuomo’s “white knight” act during the early phases of the COVID-19 pandemic. He took to the national stage, issuing daily pronouncements taking credit for everything and responsibility for nothing. He allowed the dumping into nursing homes elderly people who came down with COVID, where they infected countless others in the most vulnerable subset of all. That was bad enough. When the dying began at alarming rates, he reported by half the number of deaths.

NY Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation concluded that “data … suggests that many nursing home residents died from COVID-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes, which is not reflected in DOH’s published total nursing home death data,” James’ office said in a news release. “In fact, the OAG found that nursing home resident deaths appear to be undercounted by DOH by approximately 50 percent.”

———- ooo ———-

When asked about Cuomo, President Biden said he would wait until James finishes her investigation before making a pronouncement. THE PLANET agrees with the President. Calls for Cuomo’s resignation by Sen. Chuck Schumer and House speaker Nancy Pelosi amount to conviction without a fair trial.

THE PLANET doesn’t condone vigilante justice or mob lynchings.

Biden’s common sense call throws Cuomo a lifesaver, one he desperately needs. He can fall back on the President’s statement and wait for James’ report. After all, it may prove out that Cuomo is in fact innocent of all charges.

Granted, we’d be floored if that was the case, but we stand with President Biden. Let’s keep our power dry until the verdict is handed down.

Good call, Syracuse Joe.

Andrew, stay right where you are.

For now.

Well isn’t that a mouthful of heresay?
Bobby told Jimmy, and Jimmy told Freddy, and then Freddy told the Berkshire Broadsheet where it then became common knowledge and acceptable to parrot as unadulterated truth.

Talk about premature guilty findings lol

I’d love to see the actual evidence which could prove that “they” infected countless others. Man oh man

There’s plenty of wiggle room for false narratives in order to further their psyops. Cuomo does not mind being a team player as it’s in his best interest. He obviously does not care about his image as he knows that his character is perceived as dark by most people. It’s a nice distraction in a time when transnational oligarchs are running the people ragged. When people forget that they’re being enslaved because they’re caught up in the Cuomo drama, it’s a win win

BECAUSE Cuomo was in cohoots with several other Dem guvs in sending covid patients into nursing homes. If there is an investigation into the nursing home scandal, that info would come out & those other guvs would also be in deep guano. The sex allegations are a distraction from the main issue – Cuomo’s actions which 1)caused covid to spread & kill thousands in nursing homes & homes for the disabled, 2)covered up the actual number of elderly & disabled covid deaths, 3) protected these same homes from liability, and 4) resulted in large campaign contributions to Cuomo from the nursing home associations. His assistant Melissa Deroosa has family connections to these same groups.

Cuomo’s actual written covid directives are easily available online – do your own research.

The Dems are hoping & calling for him to resign over the sex accusations so the truth & extent of his covid collusion won’t come out!

President Trump gave Cuomo everything he needed to avoid this covid disaster; the hospital ship, Javits Center, Samaritans Purse (which Cuomo sent packing) – all of which was under utilized.

I hope Cuomo faces criminal prosecution for his handling of the covid disaster in his state!

I guess some people have no problem with converting a questionable scientific claim into an absolute truth, and then using that supposed truth to create a false narrative (Cuomo guilty) which conveniently supports a larger questionable narrative (covid is legit).

So, elderly people, with covid, were dumped into nursing homes, where others were infected, and many died? Yeah, ok

I can’t imagine the sort of scientific evidence that would need to be in place in order to charge someone with a crime related to these assumptions, and that’s what they are, assumptions.

It’s not ok to pin sexual harassment on Cuomo, because, everyone is innocent until proven guilty, but yet it’s ok to pin covid deaths on him? Something is off

It would be great if someone could present a convincing argument along with some good evidence that elderly people with covid infected other elderly people resulting in an enormous death toll.

Or, if the argument is that it’s all true because so and so said so, then say it like you mean it.

Pittsfield State Senator Adam Hinds wants to tax the wealthy with a surtax on millionaires who live and/or do business in Massachusetts. Just last week, Adam Hinds, along with a great majority of Beacon Hill career politicians, voted to give tax breaks worth hundreds of millions of dollars to already wealthy big businesses under the pretense of helping small businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Then there is President Joe Biden, who is working on a new economic plan that would raise taxes on less than the top 2 percent of the wealthiest people and businesses to fund his big government policies and programs. This is the same Joe Biden who voted for and most recently signed into law multibillion dollar bailouts for big businesses, as well as state and local governments.  

Why do Democrats say they want to raise taxes on the wealthy when they turn around and bail them out?

– Jonathan Melle

Post Script: New York State received a $24 billion bailout from President Biden and Congressional Democrats’ $1.9 trillion stimulus bill.

By asserting, as fact, that the elderly who had “covid” were dumped into nursing homes where they then infected countless others who subsequently died, what is the immediate takeaway?

The immediate takeaway is that the so called mask mandate is not a fear mongering campaign designed to subjugate and vaccinate the masses and destroy mom and pop’s livelihood and kick off a “global reset” orchestrated by the rich and powerful, but rather, an organic health emergency which necessitates the masking of the population for the sake of safety.

What a transparent psyop! Take an arrogant and powerful man, make him look like the poster child for tyrants, not that he isn’t, cast him as a sexual deviant, and once the people begin to get upset enough, they’ll also want to crucify him for covid deaths, alleged by the way, which can never ever be pinned on him in a court of law. You can’t even pin cooking of the books because first it has to be proven that the deaths were as they are alleged, and I really don’t think the science is in place for such a lofty charge against someone with friends in the dark shadows of the elite underworld.

If anyone buys into any of this crap, you got serious problems, but one thing is certain, it’s being sold for a dollar right here on Planet Valenti.

Anything to sell the people the bill of goods called, covid. Heavy mind control, nasty stuff

All to often these days the mainstream media acts as they are judge and jury. They fuel the fires of conviction without as much as an investigation. The police are victims of this on a regular basis. Mob mentally sets is quickly leaving justice in the rest area while they travel down the road of conviction without investigation or trial.
My guess is the NY governor is a scum bag and I never liked him to begin with but that doesn’t make him guilty. Lets not tar and feather him until our justice system has completed its mission.

Closer to home, the DA’s shallow letter writing campaign continues. How many fair chances are the People to give District Attorney Andrea Harrington? It’s been two years since she took office and turnover is even more rampant than ever. There are reportedly 7 openings for ADAs. The chiefs of appeals have left twice. The first assistant and head of victim witness advocates both live out of the county. The best attorneys were fired and have moved on to more lucrative private practice. In Berkshire County, the People’s best lawyers are gone and they aren’t coming back.
It is reported that advocates from the DA’s office are not even showing up in court due a covid pass. Victims are left to navigate restraining orders etc on their own. So much for Harrington’s promises of support for victims of domestic violence.
Andrea Harrington has left a trail of destruction that will take anyone who replaces her years to remedy. Maybe that is her re-election strategy? Create an office so thoroughly devastated no on else will want to run it.

Letter: Give District Attorney Andrea Harrington a fair chanceTo the editor: I read once again with disappointment another of The Eagle’s articles about District Attorney Andrea Harrington that I found unfair and negatively biased.
You see fit to publish the accusations, assumptions and “wonderings” of dismissed and seemingly disgruntled employees while giving the impression that they are facts.
Ms. Moon appears to me to be a discontented ex-employee. We do not know the reason(s) that Harrington fired her, and it is difficult and many times inappropriate or illegal for employers to comment on their specific reasons for terminating an employee. Yet The Eagle chooses to put Moon’s comment in a front-page headline that the DA “has fired a whole lot of people.”
The impression given by the headline (quotation marks notwithstanding) and the entire article is one of Harrington going through her office firing people for political reasons. What we do not hear are any facts from The Eagle such as what is a “normal” amount of turnover in the DA’s office when a new person wins a hard-fought political battle and takes office.
Additional bias was introduced by including the comments of Jeanne Kempthorne. In Kempthorne’s letter to the editor, which was published simultaneously with the front-page article, Kempthorne prefaces her comments referring to Moon’s dismissal with “Assuming this account is accurate one wonders …”. Yet in the news article The Eagle does not include the qualifications that Kempthorne’s comments are based on an assumption and her wonderings about who would benefit. All of this leaves the reader with a negative impression of Harrington’s practices and motives based on speculation not facts.
The voters decided not once but twice to give Andrea Harrington a chance to bring a different approach to law enforcement in the area. Change is never easy and clearly DA Harrington’s election to office has created strong pushback from the power structure in the region. Let’s give her a fair chance at being successful.

You are absolutely right..Marquis is one of the few regulars during local campaign season that portray themselves as campaign professionals despite not knowing their A#$ from a hole in the ground. They then take the candidate’s money and guarantee them a loss, while later touting the failed campaign as proof of their experience. What a scam!

So it’s a fact then, in Planet Valenti’s court of law, that

Elderly people who had covid, were dumped into nursing homes, where they then passed on their infection to “others”, and a huge death toll was the outcome, and now, it’s Cuomos fault, even though we have no way of knowing if any of it is actually true, and, we just have to come to guilty findings, because, oh, I don’t know, we don’t want to feel like spineless worms who got taken for a long ride when we wear the masks?

The Democratic Party is in charge on Capitol Hill and the White House, and the American consumers are getting a royal screwing over. From GREEDY Lobbyist Daniel Bosley praising PAC Man Richie Neal for passing on the costs of surprise medical billing to American consumers via higher health insurance premiums, to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate President Chuck Schumer increasing the record setting federal budget deficit by trillions of dollars and creeping inflation, to President Joe Biden doing China’s agenda of higher energy prices for American consumers, the proverbial little guy is going to pay more and more and more to big government and big business.

The Democratic Party has made sexual harassment – which is wrong – a major legal issue over the past 30 years now. In the 1990s, Bill Clinton was putting cigars in a young woman intern’s vagina and then smoking the cigars while he received blow jobs from Monica Lewinsky in the Oral Orifice (Oval Office), and now New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has 7 women making allegations of sexual harassment against him, but many Democratic leaders are still mostly silent about his bad boy behavior. Then there is the last surviving son of Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, who is a crack cocaine addict and alcoholic who fathered multiple children by multiple women, and spent his family’s income on strippers, sex workers, and drugs. Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings with adversarial authoritarian countries like China and Russia netted the Biden alleged crime family tens of millions of dollars each, and Hunter Biden is under federal investigations for money laundering.

In closing, the Democratic Party is failing the American consumer, blowing up the federal budget deficit and U.S. national debt to record levels, and have a terrible “do as I say, not as I do” public record on sexual harassment by their top leaders.

If you want a vaccine, don’t get it in Berkshire county. The local Covid task force and public health infrastructure here is a complete mess.
I’m a teacher, I recently became eligible for the vaccine. I tried using the website, it crashed and is unusable. Then one of my friends said contact this person at the MTA, she’s a nurse who is also a gym teacher. She didn’t get me the shot, but she emailed me a list of pharmacies that were giving out the shot. She said to start calling.

I spent about ten minutes on the phone, it was easy to do. I called three pharmacies outside of Berkshire County, and I booked an appointment in Worcester County. It was for the J&J vaccine, I was given a time window, told to bring two current IDs, one had to be a current photo ID issued by the government, the other had to be proof of eligibility, in my case my current school employee ID and I brought my most recent pay stub.

I drove to the pharmacy, checked in, presented my ID, gave a short medical background and filled out a form. They had work trailers and those sheriff emergency response RVs outside in the parking lot, they told me to wait in my car and they would text me, I waited, I got the text, brought my card to the numbered trailer. The volunteer checked me in, I walked to the back of the trailer, got me shot, and was told to lay down on one of those school nurse beds for 15 minutes.

They checked my vitals, asked how I felt, dizziness, shortness of breath, tingling, tightness in my throat. Everything was fine, they stamped my vaccination card, told me to keep that in a safe place, gave me a list of do’s and don’ts.
All in with travel time and lunch, three hours and I’m vaccinated.

While I was there there was an elderly couple who came in with me. They were called by their local hospital, offered a list of locations, and their hospital set up the appointment for them at the pharmacy!

I asked the nurse what the problem is in Berkshire County, she told me two things:
The local government has so screwed up their ordering for allocation, that she’s surprised there are any doses at all. That they are so poorly coordinated that volunteers and nurses who could open injection sites in Berkshire county have been turned away.
Between the hospital, Covid task force, and the City no one is doing their job. The nurse who helped me was a nurse administrator for her hospital so she sits in the meetings for the vaccine allocation. She said Berkshire County consistently has “zero order days” meaning that no one who can has placed a request for the vaccine (that would be BOH, public health nurses, designated task force staff, BHS). Local vaccination sites can request x amount and if it’s available and they have appointments, they will get their allocation of vaccine. They might not get all the vaccine they need but they at least have orders in. When she checks the system, Berkshire County, will often have zero dose requests. That means no one in Berkshire County who is authorized, has requested any doses for that week.

They all thought we had no Covid or everyone was immunized, until we all started showing up at their sites outside of Berkshire County. My nurse was shocked at how bad it was. She said probably 60% of her clients are from Berkshire County now. She said her volunteers, all medical professionals, have tried to do “contact call for appointment” into Berkshire County, but BHS via some agreement stopped that.

So if you want to get vaccinated and are eligible, find a list of CVS’s or other pharmacies providing the vaccine, and call.
Don’t wait for anyone in Berkshire County to get things going, you’ll die waiting.

This has been exactly my experience. Finally signed up for an appt. at a massvac site last week. Thought I would have to go to Boston but got contacted yesterday and am going to mall in Springfield next week for first shot.

Almost seems like after the hospitals and nusrsing homes as well as the mayors friends got vaccinated the emergency was over. I agree, look outside of Pittsfield. Paper said yesterday cases were going up in Pittsfield even as they were opening up the resturants to larger capacity.
Guess they do not want to spend any of that 33 million Covid money when it can go to special interests people. I am disgusted with the situation but not at all surprised.

New York Times contributor Damon Young writes that whiteness is a pandemic:

“It shortens life expectancies, it pollutes air, it constricts equilibrium, it devastates forests, it melts ice caps, it sparks (and funds) wars, it flattens dialects, it infests consciousnesses, and it kills people—[W]hite people and people who are not [W]hite, my mom included,” Young began. “There will be people who die, in 2050, because of white supremacy-induced decisions from 1850.”

This sounds like the demonizing of the Jewish people in Nazi Germany. White people are being blamed for everything. This is what young people are being taught in schools and colleges in this country.

I agree that racial conflict is being promoted, but I disagree with your source. I would point my finger at the Barack/Biden administration. Obama stirred things up in his two terms, and now the current administration is doing the same in order to destroy our culture and country.

Absolutely. Barry Soteros started the war on police. Remember the “beer summit?”

Attacks on Asians are up because of Kung Flu Trump. This latest attack on women may not appear to be one of them but it doesn’t change the fact that we elected a racist fear monger as our president. We’re in recovery.

It’s perfectly clear that there’s a problem with many who read and post on Planet Valenti.

On the one hand, Cuomo should be innocent until proven guilty with regards to the sexual harassment allegations, and on the other hand, he’s guilty until proven innocent with regards to covid deaths in nursing homes, and covering up the actual death numbers.

I think it’s fair to say that there’s no forthcoming scientific evidence which supports many of the claims surrounding so called covid. If the science is not sound, unbiased and undisputed, then how can anyone say with certainty what’s happening?

As far as the selling of covid at all costs goes, I think it goes without saying that if everyone hates on Cuomo, they’ll be eager to pin deaths on him, just because. In doing so, covid comes to life as a legitimate phenomenon, behaving exactly as they say, and this brings with it the perception that masks are needed, and it pits the believers against the unbelievers.

The believers in covid clearly don’t have sound unbiased science on their side, but they do have fear as an underlying motivator for their beliefs. Those who question it all, and refuse to submit, and don’t feed into the fear, they are the enemies to the same individuals that want to hang Cuomo, at all costs, even abandoning sound scientific evidence and age old philosophies, such as, innocent until proven guilty.

I’ll offer the novel idea that the media tells lies, and they obviously do it in order to deceive. The media gives ample coverage to Cuomo and all his shortcomings, on purpose. Cuomo, like Biden, is put out there as a dummy punching bag, for the people to take out their anger and frustration out on. They make these guys look horrible, on purpose, and then the focus turns to them, and they are scapegoated, and hated, and cursed.

But what’s the real reason for these guys being turned into a hate sink? The reason why is simple. People allow themselves to be dehumanized. Through fear, intimidation and manipulation, people are led to a place where they comply with the ridiculous demands of psychopaths, and over time, a deep seated form of self hatred begins to take hold. It’s a genuine lack of self respect which gives rise to the feelings of unworthiness and shame. Instead of looking in the mirror and saying, you, yes you, you’re to blame for your predicament, the hatred is turned outward, towards others, and the blame gets placed on the provided scapegoats. But this is of little consolation to the soul, because the soul gets no relief, and the pain and the misery continues, maybe never to end.

It’s not easy to look into the mirror and say, you, you dumb bastard, you did this! Those who are manipulating everyone understand that the people need a hate sink, so they provide it. This way, you’ll continue on believing in whatever they tell you.

It appears that way. I’ve got no problem bashing on these crazy people like Biden, Hillary, and Obama, I just don’t feel that it’s necessary. The real problem lies with all these people who engage in blind obedience and wear the mask and get the Jab. If half the population would say thanks but no thanks to the mask nonsense, these crazy lunatics politicians would find themselves on notice.
