PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION MARCH 26-8, 2021) — A few items to clear off the desk this Madness weekend, and then THE PLANET turns to discussion over to you.

NEIGHBORS NOT BUYING CELL TOWER — On upper Holmes Road, technically in the 800 block of South Street, a Verizon cell phone tower has roused the neighborhood into action over health concerns from radio-frequency (RF) radiation, essentially, microwaves. Neighbors have complained they were left out of the process, only learned of the project after the fact, and report a series of health problems. THE PLANET has been digging into the various points of view of neighbors, the Pittsfield Health department, and the city council. As with all stories, there is more than one side. We’ll try to sort it out and present what’s really going on. Stay tuned.

COVERT COVID CONTREMP — There still has not been a satisfactory explanation for the blackout of the COVID-19 vaccine in Berkshire County and Pittsfield. The city has dodged as to why Pittsfield and the county, practically alone in the state, has no vaccine availability for the eminently eligible, unwashed masses. Sources have spoken carefully and extremely guarded. That’s always a red flag — not proof of wrongdoing but far short of reassurance.

Some vaccine questions: Have doses been stolen from the public supply chain and diverted to private hands, i.e., the black market? What was the public procurement process? Does the city receive federal funds to buy the vaccine or do the feds send the vaccine itself? Which manufacturer supplied the doses? Was a contract put out to bid for RFP? Have there been bribes or kickbacks anywhere along the supply chain? Did Pittsfield make an accurate estimate of demand? Were there false invoices? Altered contracts? What oversight measures were put in place? These and other questions beg for an answer, in plain English, especially, if it’s likely, there is a valid explanation. It just makes no sense why Pittsfield has been shut out.

“They’z” WATCHING YOUTHE PLANET had a chance to spend time with “someone who knows someone” who works for a super secret division of the super secret government spy agency that we shan’t name. We chatted about the Dark Web, which led to some of the programs now under way in America within this spooky branch of “your” government. They include malware to track and penetrate any pubic and private website; software to harvest and analyze literally every keystroke made on any networked device; low-energy beacons for GPS to track individuals within one foot; ultra wide band (UWB) radar tracking 24/7 of any individual smart phone; WiFi satellite spying, 3D laser scanning, and thermal imaging for machine, product, and people tracking; advanced facial recognition software (AFRS); vision analytics, basically the recognition of patterns in images; iris imaging and voice analysis to fingerprint entire populations; and special algorithms to track individuals.

The move of Big Brother into this technology is mind-boggling … and secret. The emphasis seems to be on tracking individuals. Make sure you burn this section when you are done reading, just in case. If your computer self-destructs, THE PLANET cannot be held responsible.

MADNESS CONTINUES — Jim Boeheim has 1,082 victories as a NCAA Div. 1 basketball coach. That’s #2 all-time. No one gave our Syracuse Orange a chance for March Madness at the turn of the calendar, but the Orange came on big down the stretch. They survived the bubble and found themselves in the Tournament, where all they did was win twice to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. Everything from here on is playing with the house’s money. We’ve been watching Boeheim since he replaced Roy Danforth in 1975, and THE PLANET can say that this year has been Coach B’s greatest job ever. Could another national championship be in Cinderella’s slipper? Go Orange.

YOUR TURNTHE PLANET‘s Control Voice now turns your computer and this discussion over to you. Give us your best, any topic.

Have a great weekend everybody.

Planet Valenti blog posters previously wrote about my thoughts on PAC Man Richie Neal’s visit to Pittsfield on Friday morning, March 26th, 2021, where he will be flanked by the Lovely Linda, TFB, Adam Hinds, and the like, while he promotes his role in bringing Biden Buck$ to municipalities, such as Pittsfield, throughout his large Western Massachusetts Congressional District. My thoughts are that PAC Man Richie Neal only represents K Street corporate lobbyist firms. I believe that PAC Man Richie Neal does a great disservice to the people who live in Western Massachusetts because he sells most of them out for the Almighty Dollar. I believe greedy lobbyists like Daniel Bosley – who writes glowing op-ed after glowing op-ed…. praising Richie Neal – are the only winners from PAC Man Richie Neal’s corporate-friendly politics. That being said, I believe that the Berkshire delegation – Adam Hinds, TFB, Smitty Pignatelli, John Barrett III and Paul Mark – are similar to PAC Man Richie Neal in that they all vote in favor of Boston’s legislative agenda that does nothing but disservices to Western Massachusetts. Look at Berkshire County over since the 1980s! It has been decades of population and job loss, a shrinking tax base, severe economic inequality, underfunded public school districts, a large growth in the underclass, social services, welfare caseloads, crime, and the like. State and local politics in Western Massachusetts are corrupt and ran by career politicians who only represent insiders and Democratic Party bosses in Boston. PAC Man Richie Neal’s 2020 Democratic Primary campaign was a disgrace. Of course, PAC Man Richie Neal denied being involved in the conspiratorial homophobic smear campaign against his primary challenger Alex Morse. The Massachusetts Democratic Party bosses in Boston are all still in their posts after “swift boating” Alex Morse to re-elect PAC Man Richie Neal to his 1,000th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. When PAC Man Richie Neal touts Pittsfield politics’ Biden Buck$ to the Lovely Linda on Friday (3/26/2021), I hope – but I won’t be holding my breath – that the tens of millions of dollars will benefit the common people who live in Pittsfield instead of Matt Kerwood’s huge slush fund and creative accounting schemes that screw over the proverbial Kapanski family year in and year out.

President Biden told many lies yesterday in his first press conference in a long time. He said there is a border surge every year at this time. Not true since this surge is unlike any previous year. Also that only young children under 17 are allowed to stay in the country. Isn’t this breaking up families? We know about chain migration too Joe which is when one family member is in the country, others can soon follow, but so much was made about breaking up families by hysterical liberals when President Trump was in office, but Joe admits to doing the same thing.

President Biden also lied about the voting bill that the Democrats want to push through so they will win every future election. He said Republicans are denying people the right to vote. Such a lie since Democrats want to make mail-in ballots permanent, not require any identification from a voter, automatically enroll illegal immigrants as voters among other laws to insure that all future elections are as fraudulent as the November presidential election.

The cell tower issue is fun. One lady is having cooks and nutjobs call the city council with unverified claims that cell towers are harmful. Even stooping so low as to drag her kids up to the tower with handmade signs for photo ops and making them read scripts to the CC.

Yes, they put the tower up fast and behind your backs. If you dont like it, sell your house and move. But to put this circus on facebook and the CC meetings, shame on you.

“Fun?” Not to the cell tower neighbors who are suffering from the side effects. I was at the city council meeting when the councilors were being asked to approve the 5G towers.
A gentleman with a foreign accent brought forth info, during the open comment period, concerning the health effects of these 5G towers. After that meeting I went home, looked up the same info and was disturbed about the negative affects from the radiation the towers emit.
Unfortunately the sitting councilors at that time did not do their homework on the issue.

The Climate Bill Governor Charlie Baker signed into law on Friday, March 26th, 2021, will cost taxpayers many billions of dollars over the next 3 decades. Boston politicians will be able to create new 6-figure jobs for their politically connected friends and relatives. I think it is ridiculous for Beacon Hill political hacks to make 2050 their benchmark date for carbon neutral emissions. Most of these useless career politicians will be long retired or memories we all would like to forget about 29 years from now. Between China and the USA, nearly one-half of the World’s greenhouse emissions come from these two countries alone. How is Massachusetts going to make any real difference in global warming by passing the state government’s climate bill into law? What is adding more bureaucracies to the overly large state government really all about other than creating political plum jobs for the politically connected? Is this really just a backhanded way for Boston politicians to add and increase taxes and fees on Massachusetts’ hard hit and struggling taxpayers? In closing, growing Massachusetts’ already bloated state government in the name of fighting climate change is NOT the answer to stopping global warming! It is really yet another scam!

Giggling Kamala Harris has been put in charge of the border crisis, but only to do diplomatic work. Her grueling task is to figure out the root causes of all of the illegal immigration. She isn’t even visiting the border. This is crazy and a waste of time since the root causes of the illegal immigration are President Biden telling everyone to “come and get your freebies” and socialist countries that always end up treating their citizens like garbage. Kamala will never discover these “root causes”. She will come up with the theory that they just want a better life and it would be inhumane of us to deny them that, but the real reason is that the far left Democrats need voters.

Hello Pat[rick Fennell],

Joe Biden, John Forbes Kerry, and the rest of the White House climate officials are all very wealthy. They do not care about low to mid income consumers paying higher energy costs by shutting down pipeline projects and the like. President Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus package will hurt most consumers because it will cause higher inflation over time. The $1,400 stimulus checks will net Chinese companies tens of billions of dollars. China is the largest foreign owner of U.S. government debt. Some critics argue that the Bush 2 and Trump tax cuts were paid for by China’s Central Bank lending the U.S. government trillions of dollars. U.S. foreign relations with China are not going well this year of 2021. Hunter Biden’s business dealings with China netted President Biden’s son’s business around $224 billion.  The Biden alleged crime family are all fabulously wealthy. They are all worth tens of millions of dollars. Hunter Biden is being investigated by federal law enforcement authorities for his foreign business dealings with adversarial countries, including Russia and China, as well as Hunter Biden’s alleged money laundering. The new media doesn’t report about the Biden alleged crime family. If it was Donald Trump (or another top Republican) instead of Joe Biden, then the news media would be covering all of this. It is a double standard!

I agree with you about Governor Charlie Baker and most of the career politicians in Beacon Hill’s Statehouse. The state government’s climate bill is unfunded to the tune of tens of billions of dollars, will grow the already bloated Massachusetts state government bureaucracies, and sets its benchmarks to limit carbon pollutions decades into the far future when all of the political hacks will be long gone. You are right that Beacon Hill only passes laws that benefit the career politicians and their friends, relatives, and greedy lobbyists such as Daniel Bosley, Peter Larkin and Stan Rosenberg. The climate bill will end up adding and increasing state taxes on the already hard hit and struggling state taxpayers.

I wonder why politicians vote for huge taxpayer subsidies for energy companies that emit carbon pollution, while at the same time voting for climate bills to limit carbon pollution decades from now. The USA is the #2 polluter of carbon emissions in the World, while China is #1. Massachusetts state government’s costly climate bill won’t make any difference in stopping global warming, and Governor Charlie Baker, Beacon Hill lawmakers, and the greedy lobbyists all know it.

Best wishes,

Jonathan Melle

Gov Brown in the 70’s pushed for a national flat tax with no loop holes when he ran for President, what a great idea. Make everyone pay the same percentage so they are involved in the spending of said tax and will pay attention. When over half the population gets money and doesn’t pay taxes you get what we have now, the handout generation

Anyone else find it funny that on Thursday there’s a domestic related homicide in Adams, yet wrong way angry Andrea who promised the utmost transparency has not said a word. Remember the criticism that she gave the previous administration about this very issue was remembered.

Instead of concentrating on the problem at hand, her PR person is releasing information regarding domestic related convictions last week, patting themselves on the back for doing it without victims, yet one vicious and I mean vicious assault was caught entirely on camera.

It’s called evidence-based prosecution. It was developed in the early 90s in San Diego. Prior administrations learned it, used it, and trained police to investigate DV cases as if the victim would not testify. DA Doodle thinks she invented it because she was never in court enough as a defense attorney (and certainly not as a prosecutor–ever) to see it done.
It can save a victim’s life.

Baltimore’s George Soros promoted far left District Attorney Marilyn Mosby has announced that “quality of life” crimes will permanently not be prosecuted in that city. So what she is saying is that she no longer cares about the quality of life for her large city. If the city becomes a “Red Light District” so be it. What these stupid district attorneys don’t realize, or maybe they do and this is their plan, is that allowing low level crimes leads to more serious crimes because it creates an atmosphere of lawlessness. This is shameful. Where are the people in high positions in this country who should be doing something about this? Who should be sounding the alarm?

The experiment is failing. Just look at Philadelphia, Pat. If it isn’t a slam dunk case, the DA won’t prosecute. Unfortunately our “people in high positions” supported this bs narrative. And our local paper is too busy running press releases to find the people any objective data. https://thephiladelphiacitizen.org/larry-krasner-referendum/

I think the soft on crime far left district attorneys do have an agenda. It’s to turn our major cities into war zones. They will then have the convenient excuse that we must take all weapons because look at all this crime. They hope that stupid voters, and there are many of them, will forget that the lack of enforcement of crime, starting with so-called quality of life crimes, caused the problems in the first place which led to lawlessness in our cities. Lots of people will die for them to get the control they need over our country. These people have evil intentions.

Sufferance is the new lingo being used to let people off the hook for crimes also.

Pat,
Unfortunately the people in high places are part of the problem and in some cases encouraging these types of looking the other way. Like the windmills, not in my backyard, but yours.

Far left Democrats now attacking sports teams because of the voting law signed in Georgia that wants signatures for voters, absentee ballot verifications, no drop boxes, and no early voting so that elections go on for days and days. You know the way voting has been done forever, but now far leftists trying to convince people that this is voter suppression. The far left wants the same fraudulent win they had in November to continue for every election. They can’t have true fairness in our elections or they know the are in trouble at the ballot box with all of the controlling laws they are passing.

I wish Massachusetts would ask for Identification when voting and they should update every half hour the vote count per precinct and put it on the city’s website

For those still paying attention. There is a ton of Covid in Pittsfield and with the resturants all open and packed (per the mayor) the spread is likely to expand expoentially. Containment measures have slackened off in stores and markets adding to the danger.
Just last Friday 1300 more Americans died from this virus. And that is with all the vacinating going on. Politicians who are themselves all vacinated may not be inclined to sound the4 alarm too vociferously so as not to offend their business connections and big donors.

It is now up to you yourself to be very careful or join the death list. No one allowed inside to see you die or say goodbye. No proper burial. You are just gone into the wind.

Just wait one more week and see what I am talking about.

Anal gas – Stop the fear mongering.
99.8% of people recover from the virus. If you are elderly with co-morbidities then stay home.
Or get one of the vaccines and gamble with your health.

Shirl, take a look sometime at the NY cars at Berkshire Roots on Dalton Avenue. Then they stop at some of the stores around Coltsville, many of them not wearing any masks. You have to keep in mind that the Mayor needs all the NY tax money, even though for some reason she can’t tell taxpayers how much she has taken in. This tax monies is more important than the health of her “Pittsfielders”.

In applying for grants, doesn’t the application require an explanation of what the funds will be used for.
