CHAUVIN VERDICT MIGHT NOT HOLD UP THANKS TO WATERS … WILD VIDEOS ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR METHUSELAH’s

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY APRIL 21, 2021) — Maybe you didn’t hear about it, but a jury found former Minneapolis, MN police office Derrick Chauvin guilty, just as THE PLANET predicted. Chauvin had no shot. He was toast in the first few minutes of testimony when the prosecution showed the infamous nine- minute video.

But Chauvin might yet still find life.

Thanks to dried prune Maxine Waters, Judge Peter Cahill said inflammatory statements made by Rep. Waters Saturday may give the defense grounds to appeal and overturn the trial.

“Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” Cahill told Chauvin’s attorney.

Way to go, Max.

One Pittsfield officer summed the verdict this way: “It sucks to be a cop these days.”

———- ooo ———-

‘METH LAB! ‘FUCKING METH LAB’: WILD VIDEOS FORCE YUKI APOLOGY 

Two brief videos making the rounds in Pittsfield also have been making noise. THE PLANET received copies five days ago. Both movies were shot inside of Methsuleh’s Bar and Lounge, the downtown (391 North St.) joint owned by councilor-at-large Yuki Cohen.

The first lasts 16 seconds. Four women dance on the bar. One of them is Yuki.  It then cuts to a couple of young guys who look like they’re not all there. The second, 36 seconds, begins with a young man who looks five sheets mugging into the camera. That’s followed by two girls gyrating on the bar. Then we see the young man and the Yukster behind the bar, exuding affection. The Cecil B. DePhonebone production moves to the young man with his buddies, the thousand-yard stare much in evidence. Cut to five girls including Yuki dancing on the bar, with the two virgins on the left twerking doggie style. The young man provides the grand finale, shouting into the camera, “Meth lab. Fucking meth lab.”

No one wears a mask. The sound track is a confusing mix of screams, bar laughs, and profanity.

The PLANET doesn’t have to remind you that Methuselah’s has been in hot water numerous times (see PLANET Archives Nov. 11, Dec. 12, 2020;  Jan. 3 & 6, 2021). Numerous times, local boards have let the establishment skate. Local restaurant and tavern owners, Methuselah’s competition, claim the Yukster gets favorable treatment because of her council position and friendship with mayor Linda Tyer. Cohen has denied that.

We contacted Cohen. Here’s her reply:

I tell ya Dan, some days i definitely need my head examined.  Most definitely not a typical night.
It was a night that a confluence of bad decisions were made and we are deeply ashamed, remorseful and deeply sorry.   I got carried away celebrating my birthday a little early after all checks were closed and service was finished.    When one of the young ladies asked if she can dance on bar i made the bad decision of thinking it would be harmless fun.   It lasted a total of 30 seconds.
We are currently working with the health department, who asked us to close on Saturday until we can review Methuselah’s safety procedures, etc.  We are voluntarily closing this week to examine our protocols, etc. since things obviously are not working well and are looking to ensure safety nets so this foes not happen again.
We will be donating all food that we prepped to a pantry this week as well.
We are deeply regretful and we deeply apologize to the city and our patrons and our community.

One local restaurateur said, “Dan, this is crazy. Yuki is out the of control. Three restaurants (Zucchini’s, Hot Dog Ranch, and Roasted Garlic) had to shut down last week because of COVID-19, yet she continues to flip the finger to everyone. The guys that shot the video are from Pittsfield.”

———- ooo ———-

It’s one thing to screw up. It’s another to own up to the mistake. That Yuki has done so says a lot.
Methuselah’s can be a vital component to improving downtown but not the way it is now. The bar needs to send a clear message to its clientele. Those who want to get plastered and cook blue glass must be given the bum’s rush.  The message to respectable patrons has to be “We want you and will make you feel at home in a classy atmosphere.”

Kind of embarassing for the mayor given all the checks she has written to bail out her favorite councilors business. How much was the latest check? Will she now launch another GOFundMe pity parade? Do the people who sent her money the last time feel a bit stupid??
If the licensing board lets her walk on this will they ever be able to punish another violation?

Yuki Cohen dancing with lovely ladies on her North Street bar is not a big deal next to today’s Eagle headline: “SHOOTING ON NORTH STREET CLAIMES LIFE OF PITTSFIELD MAN….” A 39-year-old Pittsfield man was shot to death early Tuesday night on North Street. A suspect was caught quickly by city police and faces a first-degree murder charge.

Derek Chauvin showed no emotion, no remorse, no humanity today (Tuesday, 20 April, 2021). Even when a driver accidently hits a dog, he shows emotion, remorse and humanity (or “doganity”) for the injured or dead animal. But not convicted murderer Derek Chauvin.

What has manhood become in our violent culture? Is it Derek Chauvin being a tough cop through the end no matter the pain and loss most people feel across the nation? Is it owning military assault weapons with clips that hold 100 bullets? Is it being rich and powerful, while the working class and underclass struggle to survive on a daily basis? Is it being an extremist who spreads hate and conspiracy theories on social media?

SARCASM:
In closing, let us all continue being psychological insecure to the point that we all turn into banal tough guys who have to always be tough instead of humane. To Hell with humanity!!!!

Many American women carry a gun for protection. How do people stay safe if police are defunded and dangerous people are streaming into our country? Answer: They don’t. Europe did this same dangerous thing with so many people streaming into their countries because it’s the far left progressive thing to do. Rapes have increased like never before in many European countries. Women have no protection since they have also cracked down on guns. The same thing is happening in American with the progressive movement. No police means no safety. No guns means no safety.

I think what you should look at is what has changed in America over the last century. My father told me how he and his brothers would go hunting before school and leave their rifles outside before entering school, no school shootings back then. As for the drug culture where did that come from and why haven’t people realized drugs are not the answer. The Bill of Rights do give citizens the right to bear arms to fight a tyrannical government, as weapons have progressed the definition of arms must have progressed to, or are you going to be regressive?

This councilor is the very reason the students cant go to school.The attitude of people like her are all over this country. They need to party.They need to go to a beach.They need to go on a cruise.Between this councilor and the safety school administrator 6 months ago who had to go to Halloween parties we are stuck.Thats our country feeling they need liberty and freedom for they have sacrificed so much.This city has no plan and zero leadership in the Mayors office or at the Superintendent of schools office and now this a councilor who seems pretty ignorant about so many things.She is drunk in a bar again in a pandemic in charge of drunks in a pandemic.The board will never allow her to open again.She will just get drunk and do it again…..Yuki took off her mask and now has her liberty and her freedom but Im pretty sure Mr. Campoli wont let her operate a bar serving alcohol because then it’s on the board if somebody leaves there and gets hurt.Say goodbye to your business and enjoy your freedom and liberty and watch Fox News Media all day.Fox salutes you for listening to the Republican advice on pandemics,Gym Jordan says you wanted your freedom and your liberty.You got it.

Campoli and Stockwell need to grow at least one set of balls between them while serving on the Licensing Board! As usual they are just another part of the do-nothing political clique of Pittsfield. They wimped out as far back as when the under aged male customer was stabbed at “the Meth” and they allowed Yukie Pukie to do “community service”. Have not done their jobs on the this licensing board since they have started serving on the board. What about establishments like the Madison or Friends that have had to close their businesses since they abided by the COVID rules for well over a year now. Neither one has had a Go Fund Me. Let’s see how the clique deals with this one.

Onto the latest murder in “No Crime Pittsfield” in broad daylight. Suppose Wynn and Tyer will say the public was NOT IN DANGER again! Past few weeks there has been several accolade articles about Chief Mikie Wynn and how wonderful he is. How come we are not seeing this leadership with the PPD? But then again, both Mr. & Mrs. Mayor state there is no crime in Pittsfield so maybe Wynn is not allowed to do his job. Will never understand how the Mayor can honestly state that Pittsfield is so Vibrant, Innovative and Dynamic. Does she EVER drive around Pittsfield and take a look? The City is a complete filthy, potholed filled mess. How come her administration has allowed the dilapidated White Terrace building to remain standing since the fire in Sept. of 2017. No wonder there was a murder in that area, that property is nothing but a drug dealing haven, open container bar room and has been for years with absolutely nothing being done about it. Why is the Building Inspector, Health Department and Police Department not monitoring this building? Another friend of the Mayors? How come when there are murders in other surrounding cities the Mayor speaks to the taxpayers? What about the City Councilors. why no comments from them? Oh, wait, they are hiding on ZOOM calls using COVID as an excuse! Bet they all will show up tomorrow when Baker shows at BCC! Just to update you on a few of the highlights of our City Councilors according to FACEBOOK. Councilor Moonbeam has “worn pants” for three days in a row. Food Critic White had pizza AND chicken souvlaki the other day, Persip is still moping about Curtis getting the school department job, Pee Pee Petie is wandering the streets looking for election signatures, and others are also out on the streets collecting signatures. What have these lazy elected officials done for taxpayers in the past two years? Hope they ALL get voted out. Be safe out there folks!

Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Puki’s daughters could very well end up be pimped out at a vibrant downtown Pittsfield subsidised housing by their DCF chosen foster pimp. But then again with Puki’s connections maybe Puki can make a deal with DCF’s foster pimp and get illicit drugs/party favors, and/or cash, to keep the lights on at her Meth lab for her after hours entertainment. This would save Puki from degrading herself by begging for cash donations online.

I said it years ago, I would not walk with my children on North St. Even in broad daylight walk the entire length and you will encounter drunks, addicts, homeless, and all other types of shady people. I saw the turn happening years ago and why one of the major reasons I moved out of Pittsfield. Why a single business would want to operate in that environment thrown in with the meter maids constantly running up and down the street along with the most confusing traffic pattern is beyond me.

Speaking of shady characters and businesses. Methuselah is a joke and would have been shut down long ago in most other towns/cities. Interestingly enough back when Yuki made her Facebook post months ago when she was slapped with a fine and cried racism people in the city (some of her were also violating rules) came running to her defense on the post. Lets take a look at a couple comments from the post:

Dina Lampiasi- A city councilor and member of the licensing board: “Thank you for being such a responsive member of our local restaurant community. It is reassuring to know when restaurant owners are putting the health and safety of their patrons above all. Stay positive keep doing what you are doing”

I agree Dina, previous violations and the most recent videos clearly show she is putting the health and safety above all else. I couldn’t think of anyone with higher integrity and judgement I would want representing the licensing board. Party it up, YOLO.

John Krol- A former city councilor “Yuki, I’ve learned quite a bit about the events that led to recent increases in COVID cases, and you were incredibly responsive and took all the necessary steps that were appropriate with safety as the top priority.

Couldn’t agree more John. Safety has always been the top priority there.

The other funny part about a lot of those comments are they lambasted this blog, the author, and the people who comment here as trolls. I hope for those of you living in Pittsfield you get someone to come forward that can provide decent & honest representation. Although I fear in this environment of having your family/business attacked or being called a racist for disagreeing, it isn’t likely.

It appears from the name on the phone that the video was shot by Alexander Peaslee, his father owns Peaslee’s liquor store. His father has been arrested a number of times charged with assault and domestic violence but somehow still maintains a liquor license. Yuki and Shane Peaslee are contemporaries, Alex could be her son.
Some may remember dear Alex he was “robbed” at gunpoint in 2016 in the store.
Some say it wasn’t just a simple robbery but an event due to some other “dealings”.
Remember the kid that got shot at Meth Bar, part of the same general crowd or gang or in this case rival crowd.
So a 50 year old woman hanging out with 20 somethings who are known to the police for a number of reasons. A father who’s been in for domestic abuse and who has “associates” who are rumored to cook meth in NY, yet he still has a liquor licenses. You tell me what’s going on.
Anyone catch who was dancing on the bar? Looks like a couple of local school employees.

But to use this mans death as a photo op is absolutely disgusting and disgraceful. That’s even worse then capitalizing on the homeless’ hard times for a photo op! Furthermore, every cop knows she’s a complete phony. It’s not her policies that has those in the know (both police and defense attorneys) but it’s her phony use of her powers. Someone please run against her, any attorney (besides Rinaldo) would be a step in a better, MORE HONEST direction!

The chief is too busy hosting radio shows and running discrimination webinars for city employees. Schools are a mess. Students and teachers are suffering for rules not being enforced. Councilors who should be representing our city are a disgrace.

Why is it OK for Black People to kill other Black people? Why no riots? Are riots and looting reserved for when a cop kills a Black felon?

Because black lives dont really matter, just look at black homicide rate. Basically, if there were no black males in America, your murder rate would be cut in half. Blacks are 14 percent of poplulaton and commit more than half the murders. You can look it up. United Stated Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics. And guess what, now that Obama and Harris, and Biden, AOC, et al, are beating the drum against the police, the murder rate is skyrocketing. Oh, and most victims? Other blacks. So I guess black lives don’t really matter to black people.

So 50 something mother of two Puki would like citizens/taxpayers to believe that her newest violating indiscretion, that follows several past violating indiscretions, was just her party animalistic response to the excitement of another birthday. I’m just not buying it. Her intensely dysfunctional behavior/ lapse of judgment is evident every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. I have honestly not observed any sound judgement from Puki during these bi-monthly public displays, not even once. Perhaps her lapse of judgment is a mental disorder, and she should be medicated with psycho-tropic drugs. At least then she can blame the drugs, or her doctors, or the drugs and her doctors, for her dysfunctional 50 something behavior.

The craziness is continuing across the country with white people in New York City being told by far left activists to get out of a restaurant because the activists don’t want them there. Joe Biden and the far left are stoking racial tension.

Last night in Brooklyn, New York far left activists were intimidating white people to leave an outdoor restaurant by chanting, “We don’t want you here”. You can see white people trying to leave for fear of violence. Joe Biden and the far left are intentionally stoking racial tension in this country for political gain. I knew Biden was bad, but I never thought he would sink this low. Where are the Republicans to call out this dangerous far left agenda?

The video of this was horrible. One woman is hiding under a table. Another is trying to back out of the restaurant by getting really low to the ground. As I’m watching this video, I’m thinking is this Nazi Germany when the Jewish people were at first being pushed out of society or are we still in America because I don’t recognize our country.

He is white which makes it even more ridiculous, but everyone on the far left thinks the same. They live and breathe as one entity with no individual thought. It’s like watching a really frightening sci-fi movie.

Outside of a restaurant in New York City last night, far left activists were intimidating white people to leave a restaurant by chanting, “Get out, we don’t want you here”. Can we all see where this is leading? The far left wants a race war to give themselves more power. These people are so dangerous and Americans need to wake up to what they are doing to this country.

Pittsfield’s Marketing Strategy:
– Yuki’s bar dancing lovely ladies
– North Street now featuring a gun homicide in broad daylight
– PEDA’s nearly 23 years of vacant and polluted properties and huge financial liabilities
– A daily newspaper called The Dirty Bird (Berkshire Eagle) who always supports GE’s decades of horrible settlements that leave Pittsfield and Berkshire County polluted with GE’s industrial chemicals that has caused cancer in thousands of local residents
– 2 toxic waste leaky landfills near Allendale Elementary School
– Level 5 or failing inner city public schools
– A guaranteed 5% municipal tax hike each and every fiscal year so that Pittsfield politics can spend Kapanski Ka$h on unsafe bike lanes and other useless projects
– Matt Kerwood’s creative accounting schemes and his estimated $14 million slush fund plus his $41.6 million in direct aid from Biden’s Buck$ over the next 2 years
– The Big 3 public unions always pushing for higher municipal taxes, fees and debts/liabilities that will someday throw Pittsfield’s distressed public finances over the proverbial cliff
– Pittsfield politics means retribution for anyone who doesn’t drink the Good Old Boy’s PCBs-poisoned Kool Aid
– Dangerous Downtown Pittsfield called Social Services Alley
– Multigenerational inner city neighborhoods that are called Pittsfield’s ring of poverty around North Street
– Working class neighborhoods near Dalton Avenue who complain about skunk-odor pot smells
– Severe economic inequality ratio that leads the state and nation because there are little to no living wage jobs for the average working family
– Art exhibits of Pittsfield as a “City in Decay” in upscale museums and art galleries in London, NYC and L.A. by photographer artist Gregory Crewdson
– A post industrial nightmare community where thousands of people moved away due to thousands of lost living wage jobs over the past 3 to 4 decades

Pittsfield’s politicians from City Hall to the White House:
– An out-of-touch Mayor named the Lovely Linda who says Pittsfield is Vibrant and Dynamic when it is anything but
– Tricia Farley Bouvier fighting for Boston’s progressive causes while voting for her own legislative pay raises
– Adam Hinds fighting to raise state taxes on the wealthy while voting for his own legislative pay raises
– Governor Charlie Baker sitting on billions of dollars in stimulus cash while over 1 million workers throughout Massachusetts lost their jobs and health insurance during the Covid-19 pandemic
– PAC Man Richie Neal fighting for K Street corporate lobbyists and tax cheat campaign donors
– Ed Markey representing the Chevy Chase MD suburb he calls home sweet home
– Elizabeth Warren writing books about Persisting only to annoy Republicans
– Joe Biden’s son 51 year old Hunter publishing his new book about Hunter having smoked crack cocaine every 15 minutes and drowning himself in alcohol and having a street criminal point a loaded gun at his head
– Joe Biden’s nearly 5 decades in the Swamp somehow making him and his alleged crime family all very wealthy
– Kamala Harris changing most of her political views and her past criticisms of Joe Biden to serve as his Vice President

No one is perfect except you, Mr. Fritz. Your points about me voting for Biden/Harris and that I support – you wrote “love” – the Lovely Linda Tyer are true. Calling me a major hypocrite for my criticisms of them as politicians is mean-spirited. It is American to be able to criticize politicians whether you support them or oppose them. I voted for Biden/Harris because Donald Trump is a White Nationalist neo Nazi and Mike Pence is a far right religious nutcase who feminist and homosexual groups see as their Hitler-figure who wants to take away their rights and make them live in the Dark Ages of theocratic rule. I support the Lovely Linda Tyer because she speaks for Human Rights, cares about all of the resident of Pittsfield, including those who live in poverty, and is committed to rebuilding Pittsfield’s future after GE left town decades ago. I spoke favorably about the Lovely Linda Tyer on Dan Valenti’s radio show when I lived in Pittsfield in late-Summer 2003 to early-Spring-2004. People said I liked her romantically, but I praise her participation in Pittsfield politics on a professional level. I am happy for Barry Clairmont and the Lovely Linda, and I hope they will live a nice life together.

Glenn Beck explains how our economy is intentionally being pushed to the brink with so much cash until it has no place to go, but crash. The far left is going for a controlled collapse of the dollar and our economy, but they really don’t know what they are doing and how it will end up except that our country will be destroyed which is their goal. Think you can change the direction of this country in 2022? Today the far left is voting on their legislation to make Washington D.C. a state. They are trying to control the results of the next election already.

I actually agree that both the far left and the far right are dangerous to the country. Where we disagree is your tendency to lump any on the left, into the far left category. The majority of people in both parties are relatively normal but there are fringe elements in both. Blind faith in anything is a dangerous path to follow.

Biden and the far left are trying to pass the Green New Deal by calling it an infrastructure bill. Don’t be fooled. This is the Green New Deal they want to pass which gives big government total control. The far left is trying all kinds of distractions to take our minds off of this, but it can’t be allowed to pass.

C’mon guys dancing on the bar is no big deal. Remember a few months ago when Yuki got a 2 day license suspension and a $1000 dollar fine. She only caused a super spreader, killed half of the nursing homes and single handedly shut down ever restaurant in the city of Pittsfield. Clearly a very minor offense and that’s why her buddy lovely Linda and the licensing board treated her so well.

So yeah this time around I’m thinking maybe a time out and no tv after 9? Seems fair
