PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

First of Two Parts

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION OCT. 8-10, 2021) —  To begin, THE PLANET sends an invitation to all candidates, plus campaign managers, workers, volunteers, and supporters, to send in whatever information you wish to this board. We shall do our best to see that it gets in front of the largest online media audience in the locale.

With that, they say there’s a campaign ongoing. Is it The Invisible Man v. The Maytag Repair Man? George Jones v. Sly “No Show” Stone? It’s just that’s there’s been nothing, nowhere — of note, that is. Nonetheless, going through the seeds, twigs, and stems, THE PLANET did scrounge up enough to present our fearless Campaign Roundup.

———- ooo ———-

Still Time to Register: City clerk Michelle Benjamin informs us citizens wanting to vote have until Wednesday, Oct. 13, 8 p.m.  to register. If only 75% of the electorate participated, things would change in a big hurry. If only, if only, if only.

Signs: How does THE PLANET know there’s a campain? We saw a Peter “Pee Pee” Marchetti lawn sign jump starting to Pete “Houseless” White sign from the rear, near St. Charles Church.

Now let’s take at the council “races.”

Ward 1

Now serving, Helen “Handgun” Moon. She couldn’t even hold on to a custom-made job with the D.A., despite being female, minority, and of color. Wow. That’s hard to do. She blames her dismal council performance on being a victim. “Handgun” claims she was  pulled out of her car at gunpoint (squirt gun) by the Pittsfield Boy Scouts. She says made her listen to Slim Whitman records. While “Handgun” offered no proof, she wasn’t the same thereafter. Fortunately for Pittsfield, “Handgun” is not running again, citing illness. The citizens got sick of her.

Running to fill “Handgun’s” stilettos are

Kenneth G. Warren, Jr  kgwarrenlaw@gmail.com

399 Cheshire Road — The last time we saw Kenny, he was pumping gas at East and Lyman streets. That was maybe 10 years ago. He’s an attorney with political experience, serving as on the school committee in the 1970s and as Ward 2 councilor in the early ’80s. Not sure if that helps or hinders.

Andrea Christeen Wilson acw@gablemercier.com

90 Partridge Road — A bit of a mystery woman. Public records indicate she’s had 10 different phone numbers since October 2017. Click on gablemercier.com above. You’ll see what we mean.

———- ooo ———-

Ward 2

Kevin Morandi has occupied the seat for a while, and he has decided to move on after a fine run. No other councilor with the exception of Chris Connell has done more for his constituents than Morandi.

Competing in Ward 2:

WARD 2

Charles I. Kronick chak319@yahoo.com

93 Windsor Avenue — He’s “the people’s cherce” for many reasons, not the least of which involves intelligence, a dry and ironic sense of humor, and the capacity to separate policy from politics. If elected, he has a chance to become council MVP.

Matthew Ryan Kudlate mkudlate@yahoo.com

28 New Hampshire Avenue — Kudlate is a retired fire fighter. At age 36, it does raise questions. Did he get out by choice, was he “asked” to leave, or does the word “retired” mean he got out with a “phantom back”? Insiders say the Administration is pushing him to assure another stooge on the dais.

———- ooo ———-

Ward 3

Nick “Hackamo” Caccamo outlasted his usefulness probably 30 seconds after he took the oath for the first time. Hack has faithfully served The Suits and The Machine and now goes to his “reward,” another hack job this time as town manager for Williamsburg. Good luck to the Kapanskis of Williamsburg.

There is no competition in Ward 3, with only one candidate on the ballot.

Kevin J. Sherman kevin.j.sherman@gmail.com

22 Kathy Way — The council can and should welcome the former at-large councilor and council president. We’ve known Kev a long time, even being the foreman on a jury that included him on the roster. As a juror, Sherman, aka “Mr. Peadbody,” was competent, fair, and just. He will bring these qualities in three, a HUGE upgrade over the Hack.

———- ooo ———-

Ward 4

The council’s two-term MVP heads off to new horizons. Chris Connell served with a combination of insight and reliability that should characterize all public servants. Ask a question or send a message, and citizens could be certain of a quick, thoughtful reply. Sadly, CC’s care for The Kapanskis stands out as an outlier in the city. He sometimes pissed off The Suits. Can you think of a better qualification for public office?

Running in 4:

WARD 4

James B. Conant jbconant78@gmail.com

78 Lucia Drive — Former Parks Commission and Doyle Administration insider, Conant the Barbarian won his 15 minutes for his role in the Civic Authority/Stadium fiasco. He proved to be a loyalist when Gerry yucked it up in the corner office … and Lach’s, and Pepe’s, and … Conant knows his way around, what in other cities would be commendable.

Andrew M. Wrinn andrewwrinn3@gmail.com

1087 William Street — Wrinn Tin Tin. He and the Barbarian are already neck-and-neck for cheapest looking lawn sign. That said, the retired fire fighter brings a stellar reputation as a fireman and is described by friends as “a sweet guy.” Wrinn was part of the Pittsfield contingent that responded to the 9-11 attacks at the WTC. That speaks volumes. He served out of the Holmes Road station (Engine 6) and got to know the ward inside and out. He doesn’t seem political, another good sign. That, however, may get him eaten alive by an insider like Conan. Still, a ward that put CC in the driver’s seat might surprise.

———- ooo ———-

Ward 5, 7

Both incumbent councilors are unopposed. Patrick “Wavy, Maybe” Kavey in 5 and 7’s Tony “Baloney” Maffuccio are either pitching perfect games or have have lucked into wards where apathy runs amok. THE PLANET has a difficult time thinking it’s because they have been regular Don Larsens.

WARD 5

Patrick Kavey patrickkavey@gmail.com

66 Spadina Parkway

WARD 7

Anthony V. Maffuccio amaffuccio@aol.com

256 Robbins Avenue

———- ooo ———-

Ward 6 

Incumbent Dina “Walking Conflict of Interest” Lampiasi has so many conflicts that she’s beyond lampooning … of lampiasing. Besides the council, she slurps at the state’s public trough as Director of Political Fundraising in the D.A.’s office. Not content there, she’s also a member of the licensing board. She’s so conflicted that it wouldn’t surprise us if she started liking guys. Challenger Ed “The Giant” Carmel is heading willingly to the slaughter. His greatest impact seems to be in an earlier attempt at the Six seat, when he showed up at the debate with white shirt and tie at the top, shorts and sneakers on bottom. Slim Pickens here.

Edward James Carmel pskj077@gmail.com

65 Columbus Avenue, 406

Dina G. Lampiasi dinaguiel@gmail.com

8 Trova Terr.

———- ooo ———-

THE PLANET concludes our Election roundup Monday in Part Two with Clerk, At Large, and School Committee.

Hello Smitty Pignatelli,

Someone posted on Dan Valenti’s awesome blog: “They have done zero. Smitty says at nauseum that GE is not coming back and he is the only person who keeps bringing it up. We need to tell him it was 30 years ago.”

I wish to let you, Smitty, know that GE left Pittsfield around 30 years ago, and since then, GE made Pittsfield (Massachusetts) into its dump. Please stop redundantly saying that GE is not coming back to Pittsfield. You, Smitty, are annoying us with your redundancies and phony baloney op-eds in The Dirty Bird. Please consider retiring from Beacon Hill after your 20th year of failed leadership there. It may help you save face if you get redistricted out of elected office in the 2022 state government election. Your public record in Boston is one of many DISSERVICES against the people and taxpayers of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Jonathan Melle

Post Script: I predict that Pittsfield politics municipal 2021 election will see a 14 percent voter turnout.

There has never been two Pittsfield city councilors working in tandem to do less for the actual working class taxpayer than the two Peters. They are the backbone of special interests which mean they are the poison pills to the taxpayer. Behind those phony smiles are the plans to help out the money folk. What has either of them ever done for people on fixed incomes?

Should have a guessing game on what they were thinking or talking about. My guess “they never told me how easy it would be to steal the Kapanski’s money and blame the other party, right TSC” I am out of the area and I am marveling at the actual campaign’s that are going on. In the newspaper, tv and radio it’s all you hear. People stating their position and the media reporting it to the regular people who vote. Has anyone heard where the $40 million is going yet? Maybe that’s what they were smiling about, ha ha the people think we will upgrade our water systems…ha ha only if it the kool aide juice we all drink ha ha

At least the Stooge isn’t a failed 20 year career politician in Boston like Smitty! At least the Stooge hasn’t voted for his own 40% legislative pay raise and voted for and accepted countless other pay raises and public perks like Smitty! At least the Stooge doesn’t write annoying op-eds in the local rag saying that Berkshire County has a long and sad history of losses in population, businesses and living wage jobs, while also writing that state and local taxes have increased at the same time – the WORST of both worlds – like Smitty without Smitty ever looking at himself in the proverbial mirror as one of the major causes of the Berkshires’ distressed economy! At least the Stooge isn’t a self-deluded arrogant buffoon like Smitty, or a sycophantic brown nose around powerful Democrats such as Speaker Ronny Mariano and PAC Man Richie Neal like Smitty! But I agree with you that it would be nice if both the Stooge and Smitty Pignatelli would SHUT-UP ALREADY!!!!!!

Four people have applied for the the citys Health Director job. That means there are three more people in this city who are clueless as to how things work here. The finalist was probably known before the other guy left and has probably already moved his or her family pictures into the office.

If I had to caption this picture, I will submit two choices. The second choice is for the younger crowd. Because much like Pittsfield, I tried to be vibrant, dynamic, and now, inclusive. Can’t leave the “participation trophy” crowd out.

The first, stealing from one of those foolish reality shows and pairing it with our own Pete “the Houseless Champion” White. I present, “The Real ‘Houseless’ of Pittsfield.”

The second one, again is for the social media crowd. I call this picture, “when you think you’ve been chatting with that “hottie,” who claimed to be the prom queen or king, on whatever social media platform you two have been chatting on and the day finally arrives when you meet him/her. You open the door to your meeting place and….bam! (fill in the blank).” The other honest question would be, do you run or go through with it?

On a different note, take a look at Helen Moon’s twitter account. She’s continuing the racial hatred towards white people. She uses the racial slang “YT” for white people. It’s funny she claims to be this continued victim of racial oppression. But much like her former boss Wrong Way, she fails to ever deliver a case number or other facts that prove otherwise. If this new “incident” she posted about, really happened why did you not complain to the hospital administration? You’d be in the paper or crying in front of John Landes giving your story Helen. Sorry cookie, once you lie, you have to EARN back people’s trust. And that goes for YT, black, or green, people in my book.

I’ve wondered the same. Either Helen does a lot of drunk texting? Or he is the ultimate beta-male?

As your pulling up to the red light, you near the car in the next lane over, and glance over and see a “I’m with her”(Hillary) sticker and Xiden/Harris sticker proudly displayed on the bumper. When you get up to the front of the car, you look over and there he is: only person in the car, windows completely rolled up, and a mask on. The ultimate beta-male, hence Helen’s wif…I mean husband.

How does a city councilor representing a city that is 83% white get away with using a slur that means “whitey.” What’s going to be her slant on this? We’ll wait.

Helen Moon
@Moon4Pittsfield

Why is “it wasn’t intentional” a valid excuse for yt folks about racism? If it wasn’t intentional but it caused harm, then wouldn’t the logical response be to apologize and then change course?

Like if I “unintentionally” hit you with my car, is that okay too?

I’ve witnessed a few people at work, who have been shown the exit for making foolish social media posts. Most employers warn employees about such practices and the ramifications of doing such.

Helen should do a little research on what race of people are attacking Asians regularly. And I’ll even give her a hint, it’s not “YT.”

I wasn’t sure either Dan. I searched it in “Urban Dictionary,” and learned it’s slang for “whitey.”

It’s used in the same context a person would use if trying to slam Helen or another person of Asian decent, by calling him/her a “gook,” or something similar.

Chuck Schumer is acting like a mafia boss. Putting down Republicans so bad today that Joe Manchin said that Chuck is just classless and it’s true. Chuck Schumer is a crude street fighter, but half the country hates what he is fighting for which is growing big government which will suppress all of us. It will mean the destruction of prosperity for most people except the very rich who will get even richer and it will turn us from a nation of free people into a nation subservient to big government.

Unfortunately the swamp will be messing with our voting system if their extremely expensive bills pass. There’s a lot in those bills about spreading their newly school indoctrinated activists across the country to flip votes. They will hit the most vulnerable who they can easily fool into voting for them. They will bus them in droves to voting sites or, even better for them, keep these mail-in ballots in play for everyone so they know the final vote count and then they can easily create new fraudulently signed ballots. They will be using every trick in the book for all future important elections. Add to that, all of their illegal immigrants, millions in total, and it will be no easy fight to rid our country of these far left fanatics.

The 8 or 9 politically embedded city councilors in Pittsfield, Ma. know who butters their bread. And it is NOT the people who trusted them and voted them into office. Consequently, given human nature at its worst, their loyalty slides to what is best for themselves and NOT to the people they made promises to.
And that is why Pittsfield never gets any better, never moves forward and will always be a haven for special interests sucking up the bulk of the nutrients while the populace licks what is left in the bowl. And that is also why so many people, the ones with their eyes wide open, have left Pittsfield in the rear view mirror.

When it comes to gender they want us to forget we are male or female, but when it comes to race, they want everyone to hyper focus on that to the exclusion of all else in your personality. It serves the purpose of weakening families since gender roles are so confused in relationships and pushes everybody into their respective camps in regard to race so that we are in competition with each other and not seeing ourselves as one human race of people.

Teen Vogue magazine recently ran an article singing the praises of Karl Marx as a revolutionary who fought for the working class against the oppressive rich and inspired movements in Soviet Russia, China, Cuba, etc. There is no mention of the millions of corpses that resulted from his diabolical ideas, his raging racism, misogyny, and obsession with destruction. Instead, it is capitalism that is claimed to be violent, and teen readers are encouraged to understand revolution and how they can apply it to today. Young people are being taught this one-sided history from the media and in our schools to push the far left Marxist agenda.

DV:
Marxism: Philosophy and Economics by Thomas Sowell | Goodreads

This is a lifelong work that propvides the explanation, defense, and author’s final critique of Marx’s wirtings. author’s goal is a unbiased and fair analysis. It is a example of a rare animal – a historical & philosophical critique that is founded on empirical evidence and argument (not assertion/assumption) driven.

As for the man, I have a hard time seeing him as a level headed economist, and we can link him to the introduction of modern terrorism in contemporary society via his support and financing of the Russian terrorist movement the grew out of post Tsar Nikolai I’s reign. Would we be better off if his ideas and his wife’s cash stayed in the London pubs?

I’d like to suggest

Alexander II: The Last Great Tsar by Edvard Radzinsky | Goodreads

as a comprehensive look at the European nihilism sourced to the Marx crowd and Russian terrorists. After reading it, you may have second thoughts ascribing idealism to the darkness of those Prussians.

I cannot agree that Neitzsche is key – I see him as the dead end of Hegelian mischief.

Hello Alan Chartock,

I have been receiving political emails of late predicting that Hillary Clinton plans to run for Governor of New York in 2022. I do not know if the predictions are true or not, but you may want to contact Hillary Clinton’s political office and ask about it.

The only problem I have with Hillary Clinton running for Governor of New York is that her husband, former U.S. President Bill Clinton, will be one of the main suspects in the upcoming sex trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, who sits in a federal prison cell in Brooklyn, NY because she is being held without bail prior to her trial by jury. Bill Clinton had 26 flight log entries on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet, and we all know about Bill Clinton’s sordid sexual history and two felony convictions for perjury and suborning perjury related to the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and his impeachment for lying about receiving blow jobs from Monica Lewinsky in the Oral Orifice (Oval Office) and elsewhere in the White House in the mid-1990s.

Ghislaine Maxwell and her Attorneys said that she has documented evidence against Bill Clinton and other rich and powerful men, which she and her defense Attorneys will disclose at her upcoming sex trafficking trial. If Hillary Clinton reenters politics by running for Governor of New York in 2022, she must answer to her husband’s alleged sexual exploitation of minor women under the age of 18 who were allegedly sex trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Hillary Clinton must disclose if she knew about Bill Clinton’s aforementioned alleged illegal sexual misconduct of underage teenage girls (or women) during his association with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. If Hillary Clinton did know anything about it, which she had to know about it at some level, she must disclose to the public if she helped to cover it up for her own political ambitions to run for U.S. President in both 2008 and 2016.

Hillary Clinton spent decades saying the she was in politics for women and children’s human rights both in the USA and globally. But if Hillary Clinton covered up her husband’s alleged illegal sexual misconduct associated with Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell, which will be discovered as evidence in Ghislaine Maxwell’s upcoming sex trafficking trial, then Hillary Clinton is a total hypocrite who put her own political ambitions before her so-called feminist ideals.

I don’t think Hillary Clinton should be in politics anymore, especially with Ghislaine Maxwell’s upcoming sex trafficking trial by jury where Bill Clinton is one of the main alleged subjects of allegedly illegally sexually exploiting minor women under the age of 18 who were allegedly sex trafficked by Jeffrey Esptein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Best wishes,

Jonathan A. Melle

Thursdays Eagle version of news has an article regarding the At Large city council debate.

Craig Benoit brought up an independent audit which should get him some serious points.

Peter White on the other hand is pushing for even MORE tax payer funded tax relief for his business owner friends. Seriously??????. Once again, this clueless special interest advocate demonstrates how far out of touch he is with Johnny paycheck. He sure as hell will not get my vote and I hope all good people recognize him for the self serving politician he is and send his sorry as packing.

Fizz,
Houseless Pete has a champagne appetite on a beer account.The only way he can taste the champagne is from being on the council and rubbing elbows with those who need his votes to accomplish what they set out to do around here. He is useless to the hard working taxpayers.

Nance Pelosi and her husband Paul are worth nearly half a billion dollars. How did Nance get so rich on a political salary? Lots of well timed investments it seems. She and her husband have never been accused of insider trading, but they always seem to make the right investments at the right time. Now that she is promising billions of dollars for electric cars for government workers only in these massively large bills, good old Nance and her husband are heavily investing in electric cars. Her timing is always perfect since she has the inside scoop on what will happen next since she is the one making these political decisions.
