PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

ADD 1, 3/21/22 — We present two items from the Pittsfield Police Department:

On Saturday March 19th 2022 at approximately 7:44pm members of the Pittsfield Police Department (PPD) responded to the 300 block of Columbus Avenue for a ShotSpotter activation.  Multiple shell casings were discovered in that area.  Responding officers discovered that a vehicle and residence had apparently been struck by gunfire.  No injuries were reported. 

On Sunday March 20th at approximately 5:24pm another ShotSpotter activation occurred near the intersections of Tyler Street and Burbank Street.  Responding officers discovered shell casings in that area.  No damage was discovered and no injuries were reported. 

Both of these incidents are under investigation.  Anyone who wishes to provide information regarding these cases is asked to contact Detective Bertelli-Hunt at 413-448-9700 x532.  Information can also be provided anonymously via the Detective Bureau Tip Line at 413-448-9706, or by texting PITTIP and your message to TIP411 (847411).

AND THIS ONE:

On Sunday March 20th 2022 at approximately 8:00pm members of the Pittsfield Police Department (PPD) responded to the Lipton Mart gas station and convenience store located at 580 North Street for a reported robbery.  Officers learned that a suspect entered the store, threatened the clerk with a knife, and demanded cash.  He left with a small amount of cash and fled in an unknown direction.  The subsequent investigation revealed that that the suspect is most likely a white male.

Anyone who wishes to provide information regarding this case is asked to contact Detective Bertelli-Hunt at 413-448-9700 x532.  Information can also be provided anonymously via the Detective Bureau Tip Line at 413-448-9706, or by texting PITTIP and your message to TIP411 (847411).

AND NOW TO OUR REGULAR COLUMN:

———- ooo ———-

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, MONDAY MARCH 21, 2022) — Welcome to spring, all.

To honor this equinoxial event, THE PLANET‘s shares this poem, taken from our new collaboration with Jerri Chaplin and Paul Kocak titled THIRD PERSON SINGULAR: 33 1/3 POEMS EACH (Planet Media Books, $15 at amazon.com).

———- ooo ———-

A HYMN OF SPRING

A glance.

Pants dance on a cotton clothesline.

The edges of pumpkin stems peek,

freshly chopped, from the vine.

 

A flit.

A towhee sits atop a frayed milkweed pod.

Fluorescent-green lichen speckles an old oak

pointing north, or so the compass-tale insists.

 

A peek.

Red holly berries poke out of the late snow.

A bumblebee hovers over cherry blossoms

seasons exchange a hand shake and somehow know.

 

A glimpse.

Water crystals skimp like eyebrows in river mists.

Candle flames flick on a red-checked tablecloth

set for repast long past due: winter for me, spring for you.

 

A moment

of pinecones, of seeing what never was but only is —

a heart-shaped birthmark, long eyelashes with glitter,

violet eye shadow put on with care and birds that flitter.

 

A gaze,

amazed that what is here and just appeared

should come our way from behind closed eyes.

A gift from heaven should so surprise.

 

Agape

to spring peepers, pale stones, and the sun

streaming through leaf buds, veining

the deep, rocky soil covered in vines.

 

Awaken

to take in moments both near and far,

to the only Light by which we can see

and claim ourselves as who we are.

———- ooo ———-

Moving to items prosaic, first a program note.

If you noticed THE PLANET acting slower this weekend, it’s because we did some backstage work, adding a few technological gizmos that will help us handle our increasing volume while increasing our already beefy security measures. We thank you for your patience.

Second, the New York Times lied. The New York Post told the truth.

The lap dance was as real as the laptop.

THE PLANET speaks of the computer found in a mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall’s porch at noon on October something, 2020, a month before the election. The Post reported it belonged to Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. Its contents were blue and from the red-light district, replete with porn, compromising photos, hookers, drugs, crooked deals, and instructions that the illicit gains from Hunter’s “business” deals must include “10 percent for the Big Guy.”

Big Guy.

Hmmmm. Hunter Biden’s telling his handlers that “10 percent” has to be kicked back to “the Big Guy.”

Gosh, now who could that be?

What “Big Guy” could be in Hunter’s life?

Of course, the news that the Post broke sent Dem operatives into a panic followed by overdrive to get the lapdog media the party controls to discredit the news, led by the “vaunted” New York Times (“All the Lies that Fit”). The Times published without investigating for itself the Loon Left’s spoon-fed lie that the discovery of the laptop was fake news, “Russian propaganda” aimed to keep Syracuse Joe out of the White House. Twitter banned the Post for months.

The lies worked enough to rig an election.

———- ooo ———-

Now the truth emerges almost 17 months after the phony election. The laptop was indeed Hunter Biden’s, and it did, indeed, contain all of the reported contents from the smut and drugs to the graft committed by Biden, including evidence of kickbacks given to (and presumably accepted by) by the man who is now President of the United States of Amnesia.

It was beautiful that the New York Times had to publish the truth of its lies, which it did last week. THE PLANET calls this story “The Reality of the Laptop.”

When asked by the lame and tame White House press corps about this, the White House declined to comment because — get this — Hunter Biden was not a federal employee. You’d have to go to Burger King for a bigger Whopper.

Yes, it’s bad and sad, comrades, for what passes as competent in the offices of POTUS and VPOTUS. He slurs and stirs. She giggles like a schoolgirl while meeting with foreign heavyweights.

What a national disgrace and embarrassment.

Record inflation. Record energy prices. A national deficit that will hit $30 trillion when POTUS signs the 2,741-page spending bill just passed by Congress, the 2,741-page law of small print that every member read. Yeah, the one with no pork.

Speaking of Pete, has he ever released his plan on what he plans to do with the “houseless?” It’s been a couple of years now since he made this announcement.

For those of us who are tired of the begging at the intersections and needles in the parks, Pete, where is your “houseless plan?”

His solution is to vote for more tax breaks for the people buying up property so they can provide more Affordable/Market Rate apartments for those who are houseless. The ones where they charge anywhere from $1,200 -$2,500 a month or more.

“swans die in the Spring too
and there it floated
dead on a Sunday
sideways
circling in the current
and I walked to the rotunda
and overheard
gods in chariots
dogs, women
circled,
and death
ran down my throat
like a mouse,
and I heard the people coming
with their picnic bags
and laughter,
and I felt guilty
for the swan
as if death
were a thing of shame
and like a fool
I walked away
and left them
my beautiful swan”

Hunter Biden published his book last year of 2021 writing about a lot of his Bad Boy Behavior. The proverbial Bell has been rung on Hunter Biden for years now. This isn’t anything new, and no one is surprised by the Democratic Party and MSM’s support of Joe Biden over Donald Trump in 2020. Corrupt Career Politicians – from Pittsfield/Naples Florida to the Swamp – live double lives and put on a show for the cameras. My best friend told me at lunch two Sunday afternoons ago to never trust a career politician and their backers. They are called the Ruling Elites for a reason because we have to pay them to lie to us. K Street lobbyist firms run Capitol Hill where Members of U.S. Congress are legally bribed to do the Financial and Corporate Elites’ bidding. Boston always systemically screws Pittsfield. Pittsfield politics always systemically screws the people and taxpayers. No matter where you go in politics, it is corruption by career politicians and their backers!

Anybody want to know purpose of Hunter’s first trip to Kazakhstan in June 2014 on behalf of ChiComs and using Burisma as cover? This is the trip Grassley referenced last week where Hunter did not take the Secret Service. Read carefully. the whole time they were working for Chinese Communists. That gas was going to get piped across Afghanistan as well . . . TRAITORS – FACT. PM Massimov, last head of state security is now under arrest for treason. . . .”

“I actually smoked crack with Marion Barry. I swear to f___ing God” Funny how Mayor Barry went to jail for crack cocaine, but not Hunter. Pretty sure the ol’ Mayor would have been under FBI surveillance at this time too. Also, Hunter’s daddy wrote the law making one gram of crack equal to 100 grams of powder. Sent nearly 200K black young men to Federal prison. But not Hunter. Why not?

People, there are over 100K texts we are curating and 128K emails. Before almost all were hidden in archives and difficult to access without a pertinent search term. We have also found thousands of pictures he “thought” he deleted. Some stuff, I’m uncomfortable even explaining. When I say it is over – I mean it. Please pray and keep your Constitution close. Going to make sure public can crowd source the emails w/ redacted @.com’s, bank account numbers etc. and texts less telephone numbers. Trying our best to be responsible and not bring further harm to the victims. Keep all of us in your prayers. #benotafraid #dutyhonorcountry #courageiscontagious Please be patient, we are on the wall. Big love America, all of us have devoted our lives to keeping you safe.

Calling Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson. Here is Robert Savage former head of SS in LA and Dale Pupillo who was head of Biden’s detail rescuing Hunter from a crack and hooker bender in an expensive LA hotel where he “accidentally” used his father’s card to send someone $ 28,000. Remember neither Hunter nor his daddy merited SS protection after he left office. Just another day in the life of an untouchable princeling . . Note to our Nat. Security “experts” probably super stupid to have your picture in your texts. Without that Robert Savage this would have been a dead end.

Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall

By Margaret Fishback

Sometimes I wish that I were dead
As dead can be, but then again
At times when I’ve been nicely fed
On caviar or guinea hen
And I am wearing something new
And reassuring, I decide
It might be better to eschew
My tendency to cyanide.

1933

Here Today and Gone Tomorrow

By Margaret Fishback

Unfortunately, happiness
Depends a little more or less
On undependable, and hence
Absurdly charming elements.

1932

Blackout
By Margaret Fishback

When life seems gray
And short of fizz
It seems that way
Because it is.

The most suicidal months of the years occur in the spring: April, May, and June are when suicide rates are highest.

People attempt suicide and die more often in springtime. That’s been known for more than 50 years.

The Waste Land

T.S. Eliot (1888-1965)

The Burial of the Dead

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life in dried tubers.
Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee
With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade ,
And went on in sunlight, into to Hofgarten,
And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.

….

“The Babylon Bee has officially drawn the wrath of the Twitter speech police with its latest headline.

On Sunday, the satirical outlet was temporarily suspended from Twitter for “hateful conduct” after it crowned Biden’s newly appointed Assistant Health Secretary, Rachel Levine.

Obviously, the post was a joke, touching on Levine’s recent appointment as USA Today’s “Woman of the Year,” but it is forbidden to point out reality nowadays.”

“We’re told our account will be restored in 12 hours, but the countdown won’t begin until we delete the tweet that violates the Twitter Rules. pic.twitter.com/85tdmrqJp — Seth Dillon (@SethDillon) March 20, 2022

This is just the latest crackdown by big tech to silence any dissenting voices from speaking out against leftist lunacy, but to Dillon’s credit he is refusing to back down or delete the tweet, even at the risk of losing the account permanently.

We’re not deleting anything. Truth is not hate speech. If the cost of telling the truth is the loss of our Twitter account, then so be it— Seth Dillon (@SethDillon) March 20, 2022

P.S. what twisted the twitter? BB called “Richard” Levine Man of the year

David Capless > “Both Pittsfield and North Adams have woefully understaffed police departments for communities of their populations,” said Capeless. “That’s part of it. Those communities — North Adams, unfortunately, has such a poor tax base that it would be very difficult for them to try to ever achieve that. Pittsfield has repeatedly denied the request to expand it to where it absolutely should be, and that’s something that they should be doing about. If your communities aren’t inresponding, what is a DA to do?”

4 years ago the chant was the DA doesn’t have anything to do with the crime rate it’s not Paul’s fault blah blah blah. Interesting things are different now. The crime rate in Pittsfield has been Skyrocking since 2014. We have a Senator that is MIA Reps that have brought Zero jobs and so on and on we go. Gotta try something different

So DA Wrong Way Harrington’s soft on crime approach and Lazy Linda lining her pockets at the expense of the average citizen, by accepting those “grants” and the scourge that comes with it, have nothing to do with it? Interesting.

I’ve always find it funny, when you hit a progressive with facts that destroy their narrative, their go to, is to “blame the past.”You ever notice that? Trump….Capeless….

I don’t remember bums at every corner begging for change a few years ago under the Capeless regime. Not saying it was great, but I don’t remember him waving the white flag either and advocate for “heroin shooting galleries,” either Facts.

That’s WW Harrington’s answer? Give up? I’m curious if her kids became drug abusers if she’d be so accepting of her kids shooting up dope legally? A good debate question to ask her? If she tries to dodge it, it tells you what she thinks of the common person.

The only way the media burying the laptop story makes sense is to realize that the media and far left wanted the cognitively challenged and corrupt Joe Biden to be our president. Joe and also incompetent Kamala leading our country will fulfill the desires of the far left to make America give up our power to other countries. If those other countries happen to be violent Russia and China, then so be it. We can then turn our attention to the globalists green energy fanaticism and the far left gains control over us by skyrocketing prices on food and gas to force us to give up fossil fuels and meat consumption.

Another terrible crime in Pittsfield was in an article in the New York Post last week. Local man was captured at the Port Authority for trying to escape to Texas after beating his infant son in Pittsfield, the FBI was also involved in his capture. Amazing that this article was in the New York Post and also in the Hampden Journal. Local authorities evidently wanted to hush this incident because after all, City of Pittsfield is suppose to be viewed at Vibrant and Dynamic.

Since Linda Tyer has been in office my former quiet neighborhood has turned into a race track for New York cars purchasing pot, our air is totally infiltrated with skunk odor from Berkshire Roots. Also, my street has turned into a walking cut through for all the addicts going to Spectrum Methadone clinic on Merrill Road. These addicts now are asking for money from me when I am just trying to peacefully walk my dog, I now have to walk past my home as I don’t want to let these addicts know where I live. The few times I have had to contact the PPD because one of these addicts are passed out near my home I have been told by the PPD that “Don’t worry they are a frequent flyer, they will move along”. This is NOT the lifestyle I am paying constant increasing taxes for. My neighborhood is filled with hardworking tax paying family orientated residents but our well being does not matter. We are on our second good City Councilor but the Mayor treats them as thorns in her side because they are trying to advocate for us. This Administration has turned this City into a complete shit hole and these elected officials could care less as long as their pockets are filled.

Put Nuciforo’s stinky pot growing buildings, Pittsfield’s Methadone clinic, Social Services Alley on North Street, and the rest of it next to Mayor Linda Tyer’s mansion inside of her Gated Community neighborhood within a few feet of the Hancock border. Make her lead from the frontlines.

Jon, might as well move them there, your Lovely Linda could care less about the merchants and restaurants on North Street. She took one SHORT stroll up North Street last year and that is it, just a Vibrant PR move. She also proved it last week when she Vibrantly and Dynamically spoke about the move of Third Thursday to the needle, nip, drunks and addict filled Common, so much for bringing residents to North Street to shop and get a bite to eat. Although, most people I know are afraid to attend due to the City’s ongoing crime.

I did a news.google.com search: Pittsfield berkshireeagle = shooting incident on Columbus Avenue and then a dangerous downtown gas station robbed at knifepoint on North Street. I thought that something good might pop up, but instead, I see that 15 cats were abandoned, the trash-burning plant exposed workers to serious health exposures, it will cost Pittsfield residents 10 to 12 percent more this year of 2022 to do their 3 S’s, litter is out of control, potholes plague Pittsfield roads, and pot shops are all the rage.

And, this isn’t news, why?”

I’ll add, Hunter is ears deep in the Ukraine biowar-labs, as one of his flim flam corporations (thanks “big guy”) is involved in their operations.

Pittsfield politics is the land of sky-high municipal taxes for Level 5 public schools, substandard public services and violent crime on its dangerous downtown area streets. Mayor Linda Tyer and Peter Marchetti and Bill Cameron: It would be like me charging you for a mansion but selling you a rundown shack. Boston Statehouse politics is the land of behind closed-door unaccountable state government where the career politicians enrich themselves and their politically connected backers at the public trough. Chrome Dome, Shitty Pigpen, Trippy Country Buffet, Paul Marxism and the career Mayor: It would be like me telling you to believe in American Democracy but instead I am really picking your pocket with a mask of Abraham Lincoln over my face. Swamp politics is the land of multimillionaires and billionaires legally bribing each other so that the Financial, Corporate and Ruling Elites always win, while the rest of us have to pound sand. Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi: It would be like me having a credit card with over $30 trillion in U.S. national debts, but when I need to refinance it, I use the American People and foreign national debt holders as an insurance policy to cash in over and over again so I can continue to spend taxpayers’ money like a drunken Sailor on leave. The Swamp politicians use the American People much worse than Hunter Biden used crack cocaine, alcohol, sex workers, strippers, his family funds, adversarial countries such as Russia and China’s funds, his business as an alleged money laundering operation worth an estimated $1.2 billion with “the big guy” (Joe Biden) allegedly getting his 10% cut of an estimated $120 million, and Hunter Biden trying to weasel out of paying his stripper ex-partner he cannot remember ever meeting child support if not for a court-ordered paternity test. In closing, the corrupt career politicians are all hucksters from Pittsfield Massachusetts to Boston’s Golden Dome, to the Swamp no matter if they Democrats, Republicans, or another political party or a so-called Independent/Unenrolled.

Why are they trying to force an East-West train system when all the transit authorities are losing money and riders? Doesn’t this suggest spending $9 Billion on this endeavor is throwing money down a toilet with more to follow? According to one article The T and NY subway system are only running because of federal dollars propping them up and this program ends after next year.

Guess where that hard to trace dark money is taking us now?
 
Andrea Harrington is making good on her promise to help national Soros-funded campaigners stop prosecuting 18-20 year olds such as gang bangers as adults. Part of the legislation is to keep people in juvenile court until their 21st birthday, except people facing “the most serious charges.”
 
What would this mean for the Berkshires?
 
Harrington’s fellow rogue prosecutor, the now under recall LA DA Gascón ordered a double murder case to stay in juvenile court, despite that the perpetrator was 17 years-old and only weeks away from his 18th birthday when he was arrested, which means the most he would get, if convicted, would be about seven years in the murder of the two young women.
This was the LA DA’s response. 
“…Meanwhile, we remain committed to ensuring that the scales of our criminal justice system are balanced. Incarcerating youths for decades before they fully develop their cognitive skills significantly increases their chances of committing future offenses.”

Moving Third Thursday to the Common is the Tyerfire’s way of killing off the event.
How much damage will Touch a Truck cause she’s a grass, and who will ultimately be responsible for repairing that damage?
The Kapanski’s, of course.
If this is a way to hide North Street from us, as if we do not already know how bad it looks with all the empty stores,is immature.
As for the purpoted crime on North Street, I lived on North for several years and throughout the pandemic and can honestly say I don’t see it.
And I am a small version of a human being and if I had felt vulnerable to violent crime, I would have left sooner than I did.
There isn’t much left to North Street, I think we can all agree on that but what’s really affecting the economics of the streets is insisting on putting the cart before the horse, with the market rate rents.
Bringing in market rate rents and hoping that business will follow is myopic at best.
Also myopic is us, explaining the panhandlers as a problem for the district attorney rather than as a result of this extraordinary economic event which we are all still negotiating our way through.
There are two things I’d like to see: crime stats specific to North Street,
and a follow up in the press on what, if any, progress this hub approach to social services and law enforcement is making.

She said she is not going to tolerate it on Pheasant Way. And she hasn’t, so promise kept.

SCOTUS nominee a real piece of work. Hawley & Cruz did a great job questioning her lenient sentencing of pedos….

And she refused to answer whether or not she supports packing the court (of course she does – she’s a flaming libtard!).

Some/many Swamp Republicans supported the January 6th, 2021, insurrection on and inside of Capitol Hill that was caused by Donald Trump’s BIG LIE. 5 innocent people, including a Capitol Hill Police Officer, died during the mob riot where the white domestic terrorists tried but fortunately failed to murder/assassinate then Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, and other important Members of U.S. Congress. Trump’s racist White Nationalist MAGA (alt right, Nazi, hate) political movement has caused an increase in domestic terrorist by white power hate groups both at home and abroad. The Republicans political lines of attack on Ketanji Brown Jackson overlook their own party’s leadership failures. If I were her, I would throw it all back in the Republican Party’s face! Lastly, why is it always the woman – such as Ghislaine Maxwell and not the estimated 215 pedophile men (allegedly including former U.S. President Bill Clinton) who allegedly sexually abused/raped 14-year-old girls – who pays, while the men (such as Hunter Biden and other political brats like him) walk scot-free?
