PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION NOV. 5-7, 2021) — The Loon Left just sank the Biden agenda.

America should be grateful. Voters just gave a body blow to the extremists on the left, who call themselves “progressive.” Our guess is that “liberal” just isn’t left enough these days.

The Democrats got wiped out in Virginia, losing at governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and legislature — this in a state Syracuse Joe won last year by 10%. In New Jersey, the party was headed for defeat until, after the polls closed, another 40,000 ballots miraculously popped up after all the votes had been declared counted. It was enough to avoid an embarrassing loss in a state the party won by 16% by 2020.

As noted Dem consultant James Carville put it in his blunt fashion, the party’s “stupid wokeness” did them in. AOC and the Shrills disagreed, claiming their own party lost because it was too moderate and therefore failed to “energize the progressive base.” Too moderate!

Right.

———- ooo ———-

The great shame of national politics is how the centrists of both major parties have been coopted by the tiny minorities of their respective flanks.

THE PLANET doesn’t know what this is, but we know what it is not. It is not America.

The Loon Left and the Rabid Right have not-so-gradually pulled the middle apart, and as we are seeing, recalling the memorable line of William Butler Yeats, “The center cannot hold.”

We witnessed President Biden’s further unfolding (and undoing) on Election Night, a great night for Republicans and the beginning of what at this point looks like a massive backlash against “progressives,” to be fully felt in next year’s mid-term races.

The Jersey ballot had a familiar echo. Get a load of this quote by Ryan Matsumoto of Inside Elections with the two guv candidates in a virtual tie: “The remaining vote batches will lean Democrat, in many cases heavily so.”

Please, examine that quote closely.

How does the writer KNOW this? Why, in a fair election, would “batches” of votes lean, “in many cases heavily so,” toward one party as opposed to another? And why, when this occurs, are such votes from certain districts always “remaining” to be counted? Why do they come in late, all at once, and disproportionately for one party, which coincidentally always seems to be the Democrats?

Tell THE PLANET. We’d like to know, because once again, it proved to be the case, handing one party’s win to the other.

———- ooo ———-

Perfect case in point, the misnamed “American Rescue Plan,” also known as “Build Back Better,” the extreme left’s insane giveaway THE PLANET call the Biden Bux. Syracuse Joe, faltering and doddering, has been smoked by his own VP and the banshees known as The Squad.

At the global economic summit in Glasgow, Scotland, a reporter shouted a question about the radical Dem plan to provide $36,000 in cash and benefits, all tax free, to all single parents — no work or anything else required. Biden didn’t have an answer, no surprise since he’s not actually the President. His VP, with The Shrills (AOC & Co.) serving as her kitchen cabinet, is running the show.

During the opening presentations at the summit, Biden actually nodded off a couple of times, fighting exhaustion. He just doesn’t seem WITH IT. Imagine the reaction if President Donald Trump had fallen asleep at an international conference on the environment while the head of a nation’s ecological initiatives, a black man, gave his presentation. Outrage and uproar. Joe nods off, and pretty much nothing but excuses, rationalizations, and justifications.

From an AP story:

Rep. Ronny Jackson, who previously served as White House physician under former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump, tweeted: “NOBODY in their right mind believes this man is actually running our country. It’s so painfully obvious he’s not physically or mentally up for the job, that it’s EMBARRASSING. He needs to resign. America deserves better than this.”

———- ooo ———-

The $36K handout comes on top of the foolish plan to give $450,000 to EACH illegal alien (aka, criminal) who snuck into the country and was “separated” from family. How one proposes to prove that or vet the separation claim, no one has answered. It will come as no shock, should this measure pass Congress, that 99.278% of every illegal will claim they were “separated.” How border and immigration authorities, already swamped and overworked, will separate the few heads of wheat from the load of chaff has not been addressed.

Fortunately for Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski, there is one senator who has their back. He’s Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia. He calls the giveaway proposals of his own party “a shell game,” adding that the “real cost” will double, making the $1.9 TRILLION social services handout plan a $4 trillion deal. Manchin said a vote for this reckless plan “is a recipe for economic crisis.”

He got that right. The $1.9T-actually costing-$4T will be paid with fiat currency (count your blessings; originally, they were asking for $3.5 TRILLION-actually-costing-$7 trillion). Already, the Democrats, in control of both houses and the Oval Office, have flooded the country with paper money backed by exactly NOTHING. Releasing another $4T on top of that will only aggravate inflation, which, you may have noticed, has reached 5% and shows no sign of abating.

Talk about hitting the Kapanskis hard.

America deserves better than this.”

It certainly does. What say y’all?

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Dan,

Of fiat currency, your inexplicable hero said this:

https://money.cnn.com/2016/05/11/news/economy/donald-trump-print-money/

So, what exactly is it about Trump that you’re so enamored of? His policies exploded the debt and deficit and yet you demand forensic audits of the Pittsfield budgets. Why? It is the height of hypocrisy.

Are you opposed to universal pre-K and reductions in payments for child care? Why?

Children don’t ask to be born, Dan. And, your yearning for the so-called halcyon days of Pittsfield ignores the obvious fact that GE was almost entirely funded by the federal government during those “better times.” So, you can either admit that Pittsfield was a corporate welfare town, or you can pretend otherwise.

I thought many states already had universal pre-k.
What I don’t understand is how the fed govt thinks they would implement the reality since schooling is run by states.
I’m not against vouchers by income for childcare but unless the federal government funds childcare centers it won’t work. Look at the price/quality offerings locally for childcare – the boys and girls club after school was abysmal and far too much for what little to nothing they offer. I don’t know of any local childcare venue at all I would recommend to a young family.
The spending plan is not thought out so will be wasted money. The country would be better off to start with universal medicare.

Way to report from fake news cnn to try and make your point. The issue with children should start in the act of intercourse. The 2 people involved may be creating a child that they are both responsible for, I was not in the room helping out so why should I pay? With pre-k anyone who knows about attachment theory would know this is a bad idea. I believe most educators take a class in psychology so they should know better. So I am opposed to what you ask.

I am 46 years old, and for all of my life, most of the gains in income have gone to the already super wealthy, while the rest of the American people have been thrown into Social Darwinism. The average American family is happy to save a little money, cut even, or even have a job with benefits that takes care of their family. The underclass has grown larger and larger during my entire life. In 2008, the Swamp, including both Bush 2 and Obama, voted/supported bailing out Wall Street with trillions of tax dollars, as well as bailing out foreign banks with business on Wall Street with hundreds of billions of dollars, during the financial crisis that Wall Street itself caused through its casino-like operation that still goes on today in the year 2021. Bush 2 cut federal taxes 3 times, and Trump signed the single largest tax cut package in U.S. history, while the U.S. national debt is very close to $29 trillion and counting higher. Biden spent $6 trillion federal tax dollars in his first 100 days in the Oval Office, which is on top of the multitrillion federal government budget, and now Biden is anxiously waiting to sign the largest federal spending bill(s) in U.S. history. U.S. inflation is at decades-highs, and the Swamp is beholden to the wealthy K Street lobbyist firms that don’t want Congress to raise taxes on their wealthy clients. Trillions of dollars are being printed every year out of thin air, which is reminiscent of when Napoleon ran the printing presses in France over 2 centuries ago. The only thing going for the U.S. economy and corrupt financial system is that the rest of the world is drowning in debts along with us. In closing, 21st Century capitalism has become the old coin flip game of “Heads the Haves wins, Tails the Haves win” while the Have Nots are forced live in Social Darwinism that will always keep the same ELITES in POWER forever.

Karl Marx basically said that the workers own the factories and farms in the mid-19th Century when he wrote about the horrors of the industrial revolution where children as young as 4 years old worked long days, fed only one meal per day plus warm beer for carbs/energy, were often deformed and sexually exploited, and never learned how to read and write because their were no public schools back then. If you wish to keep calling me a Marxist, then I will take it as a compliment because I believe everyone deserves to be treated fairly in life, especially children.

You are deflecting to the subject of children’s’ education to gain sympathy for your hero Marx.

I do not agree with your Marxist viewpoint and writings on this blog. Marx was an authoritarian communist, an atheist. In the U.S. anyone can make a decent living through hard work and diligence. Millionaires are born every day. Our founding fathers, in their wisdom, set up the republic with safeguards which are being trampled upon by the leaders of the Communist Democratic party which you support.

We will continue to agree to disagree.

Yes the DA sets the tone for prosecution, not policing. Even if she dropped every charge she doesn’t make the laws and she sure as hell doesn’t enforce them. The mayor, through city council, makes city laws, such as no sleeping overnight in parks, and cops enforce them. Personally I think Harrington is about as useless as you know what and same goes for Tyer but the city’s leaders and their police are responsible for crime problem handling. Does the DA encourage more crime with her woke nonsense? Does a house less person shit in the woods?

Why do the citizens of this great country allow these questionable voting practices? Why do the journalists(?) ignore the story? The story of fraudulent voting is low hanging fruit… seems like people just accept it. Pittsfield needs to vet their voting rolls and let us know what voting machines they use for voting. People should not be allowed behind the counter at city hall either during voting day, poor optics at the minimum. I hope everyone thanks the Democrats as they pay higher prices for everything this year. The 100 executive orders illegitimate signed sure are doing us Americans well!

Did you bother to read any of the AZ audit Bleak? Approximately 19,000 voters either voted in multiple counties or cast ballots from their previous address? Not to mention, the election management system was purged THE DAY BEFORE it was handed over. And the large majority of the 19,000 votes, guess who they all voted for? You guessed it, Brandon Xiden.

So, it’s not a myth. You libs hate facts. You go right to the democRAT playbook of tossing out your opinion and treat it like it’s a fact.

A really nice lib slant from Reuters. Of course Brandon Xiden won AZ. Dead people were voting for him. Vacant dirt lots were casting ballots for Xiden, and the Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, erased the election management system, the day before she handed it over. Under court subpoena, I might add.

But yeah, that’s all legit.

It’s the same as feeling your employer owes you more salary. So instead of doing the honest thing and seeking other employment, you take it upon yourself and decide to steal from your employer to make up for your “lost wages.”

The Trillions in dollars of social spending bill will break the country, but isn’t that what the far left is trying to do? Destroying the work ethic, paying some people not to work, especially single women, will only encourage families to break up or never begin in the first place. All of this destroys America and our values.

Obama, getting all worked up, that these bills have to be passed now because it’s so urgent. Is he really worrying about grandma having a hearing aid? No, he wants the billions of dollars for climate change (Green New Deal) to give to his globalist buddies in Scotland to bring on this one world government. John Kerry also so concerned about getting money for globalism (fascism) that he says they he will do a workaround if the bills don’t pass Congress. All of this urgency isn’t about just social programs, it’s the billions for climate change while they give a much lesser amount to preparing for a pandemic. Hasn’t the pandemic proven to be much more dangerous than climate change? These people could care less. Global warning alarmism will give them power and money.

These left wing progressives remind me of spoiled little children, upset that one of the other children got a bigger piece of pie. Their mantra is “They need to pay their fair share!” So what about people on welfare? Do they just get the money for free?
NO! Their should be a tab keeping track of welfare money (not social security, just welfare), and the welfare recipient has to do SOMETHING! Clean up the park, sweep sidewalks, clean up the dog p00p, SOMETHING. I mean, they gotta PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE TOO!
As my dad once said, “Nothing in
life is free, somebody has to pay.”

Were the trillions of dollars in federal bailouts to Wall Street that acted (and still acts) as a CASINO “Welfare”? Should Wall Street financial executives have to shovel shit like Ronnie Reagan’s “Welfare Queens”? Could there be a double standard here?

Even USA Today reports it!!!The approval ratings for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have plummeted to incredible lows, according to a newly released poll.A survey published on Sunday from USA TODAY/Suffolk University revealed that Biden’s approval rating is just 38 percent.

Harris isn’t doing any better with voters, with only 28 percent approving of the job she has been doing.

The DA and her staff are idiots. They should have never brought these charges. It was a waste of resources and a waste of taxpayer money.

A seasoned DA or even a recent law school graduate would have pleaded that out and done a CWOF.
Nipples is just wasting peoples time and taxpayer money. Even the judge saw through this, and what was the point? There was no intent, there was no chance of her committing this crime again.
It would have been better if the Judge just dismissed the charges with prejudice, then again idiot Andrea Harrington would probably write a mean letter to his boss.

This DA fired all the good staff, those who worked hard and had a voice. The ones she kept are not allowed to speak up or disagree with her…or else! They keep their heads down and do what they are told. Much like the city council they are there for their fearless leader not the citizens who they should be doing their jobs for. The DA’s job is not to change laws it is to enforce the laws before them.

Obviously the Beagle editors read your column everyday, as comments made yesterday on your blog triggered a detailed story about the “enforceability” of the Pittsfield mask mandate.
I totally disagree with the mask mandate in the comments I made on your blog, and encouraged local businesses to sue the city – as the mandate will affect their businesses. Now the Beagle is reporting that no fines will be leveled against businesses enforcing “the directive” – however that could change if there is not widespread conformance.
As for me, I will not do business with any companies enforcing the directive, and I still hope the local businesses will stand together and refuse to submit to this type of bullying from the city. The only way the small number of so-called city power brokers can be defeated is with lawsuits!

Lenny agree with you. Although we will never know the truth from our absent Mayor, but, the taxpayers of Pittsfield deserve a communication from her Administration immediately! This communication needs to include how many immigrant families she has accepted into Pittsfield and also where they are being housed! How much money is she receiving to accept these immigrants, many who are ill with many diseases and many who are criminals. She truly does not care about the state of the City, only how much money she can be paid by Sleepy Joe. Why is it much of the Country is moving on and living life to it’s fullest, yet Pittsfield is going backwards, increasing COVID and businesses closing for good by the day. Noticed a few weeks back that Modern Mold & Tool and Magnus Molding on East Street and Hubbard Avenue is closed and buildings are for rent. This business employed a good amount of workers. The Highland Rest., always a great lunch time meeting place for years is no longer open for lunch. The City is a mess, yet she now has created a new program “LOVE PITTSFIELD”. Could she please let us know what there is to love about Pittsfield? Is it the crappy roads, the crime, the failing school department, the “houseless” pandemic, the lack of retail, the pan handlers and on and on! Must be the POT shops we are suppose to love. What a Dynamic and Vibrant Mess!

Facebook was getting so much bad press that it is changing its name hoping people will forget what a monster is has become. Pittsfield has much the same problem but instead of changing its name it is launching a huge disinformation campaign and aiming it at the largely uneducated and ignorant masses the city has attracted to live here. But anyone with eyes and ears knows this marketing gimmick for what it really is, which is fancy wall paper over a crumbling wall.
But somebody made a fancy pile of dollars putting it together and will probably continue to do so. Who would that be?

Besides there menu hasn’t been updated since 1948. Hip young adults won’t eat liver and onions. Unless they change they are doomed to fail. Their client base is dying off.

“THE PLANET doesn’t know what this is, but we know what it is not. It is not America.”

‘This’ is hatred – the well-spring of irrational ideation. Hate and its cousins in “I can’t stand it” response is where all irrational beliefs begin. There is no need to dispute the point – it simply is true, and that fact suffices.

The hatred’s too much and makes us sick. It’s a sickness driven by a bunch of words which are real viruses. they start somewhere in someone’s head, get spoken and multiply out of control. They take on garish icons to make them more real to those who may doubt them, in other words this is really idolatry and fetish worshipping. A few of these fetishes: Covid, right wing, left wing, progressives, fascists, Trumpers, Brandon, Squad. yea the disease Covid-19 is real.but not the garish pictures on magazines.

These ‘ideas’ are temporary – they morph and evolve (we now have ‘Delta Right Wing’) like those fractal images which sprout miniature versions of the large – and they are spread by demagogues with the intent to make us hate each other. I see this happening right here in these conversations.

This Planet is a good show. It’s really an experiment. it’s up to the people here to make it work. I’d like to see less abuse and more argumentation. We’d likely find that we’d have very few differences between most here. Think about it. Any two will insult each other over issues of national packaging (media invented news) yet completely agree on local topics. You must admit it’s strange.

The infrastructure bill has passed and the Democrats only agreed to pass it if the 2nd massive bill is passed by November 15th. Why is there no joy in most of the country about this? I don’t see the dancing in the streets except by some far left Democrats. The 16 Republicans who voted for this are mostly in swing states, but they should be ejected from the party. Manchin said this one should have been passed weeks ago, but he didn’t want it linked to the 2nd bill, but now it seems he has agreed to pass it after some cost calculations come in, but isn’t that still passing both of them if he has already agreed to pass the 2nd bill by November 15th?

Why would Joe Manchin decide to continue to link the 2nd bill to the infrastructure bill? Pelosi only ALLOWED the infrastructure bill to be passed if the moderates agreed to pass the massive social spending bill by November 15th. What’s the difference? The supposed cost calculations being done will be meaningless if Manchin has already agreed to pass the 2nd one.

If both of these massive bills are passing, especially the social spending one that is designed to hook all Americans on government handouts, then we should play the far left at their own game. Why should I be going to work everyday while I see younger people with a lot more energy than I have, just sitting home and watching tv and using pot? Elderly people should leave their jobs in droves and throw themselves at the mercy of big government. We tried to save this country, but the far left wants to tank it. Let’s help them. The sooner we lose this country, perhaps the sooner we can get it back.

Totally agree. We boomers are millions strong and we can rattle some politicians.

History, if it’s not distorted by the far left radicals, will show that we didn’t go down without a fight and, in this case, the fight is milking the system for every penny we can get just like the younger people are doing. There is no question that the socialist system will break down very quickly.

The ones who will truly suffer from this big government spending will, ironically, be the elderly. Yes, they will give you more money now which the elderly should take full advantage of since they tried to stop this insanity, but the indoctrinated younger people think it’s great to stay home and do nothing. It’s in the medical area that the elderly need to be concerned because big government will not work that hard to pay for health maintenance once we pass age 80. I have seen this happening with my now deceased mother and my own fight to get her proper healthcare and that was before the passage of these massive social spending bills. Read popular literature and you will see all the references to “why do the elderly really need to live pass age 80 with so many health problems?”. It will be a frightening world in the future for the elderly in my opinion.

Time for Americans to revolt by not paying taxes. People should retire at 62 which is the age you can retire here in Massachusetts (I think each state is different). At least you won’t be working and paying taxes to support younger non-workers and illegal immigrants. Government will get less tax money and I recently discovered that the majority of things I want to do once I retire will not cost anything. Their socialist utopia will fail.
