PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION MAY 19-21, 2002) — Gathering a few loose apple blossoms that have carpeted the Lower-40 lawn:

Good Citizens — Thursday morning, THE PLANET reported to Berkshire Superior Court for jury duty, good citizen doing his civic duty. We ran into several old friends and used the three-hour wait to gather the latest scuttlebutt from courthouse insiders. Among the topics, the best calamari you’ve ever had, not-so-smart technology, and Andrea Harrington. Courthouse types were wondering what’s up with her delaying the paperwork to get her officially on the Sept. 6 primary ballot, where she would face attorney Tim Shugrue. Common thread says she’s badgering newly-appointed U.S. attorney Rachel Rollins of Boston for a federal job. Not having heard from Rollins, so the theory goes, she’s keeping the D.A. run as a placeholder. Harrington has the required signatures but needs to take the final steps. She has until May 31. THE PLANET‘s handicapping expert, Grimmy the Treek, says the smart money has her staying put.

Trumped — Under Trump, the stock market hit 36,000 or thereabouts. With Biden, that market has tanked to near 30,000. Gasloine was $1.86 a gallon when Trump left office. With Biden, it’s $4.69 and rising. Trump had inflation at 2%. It’s quadrupled under Biden. Trump enacted Title 42 to keep out illegals at the southern border. Biden will remove that order May 23. Feds estimate 18,000 criminals a day will be streaming in the U.S. They will get first dibs on benefits, food pantries, housing, and cornucopia of other freebies, paid by Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski. Trump leveled the playing field with China, kept Putin in line, and twice sat down with Kim of North Korea. Biden let Xi pin him to the mat, told Putin it would be OK if he invaded Ukraine, and poked Kim into full-blown nuclear mode. Republican landslide in November.

Wee Dough Need Know Stinking Papers — Speaking of undocs, THE PLANET wonders what planet this state’s Loon Left Democrats occupy? Your next governor, Maura Healey, who will defeat Republican Geoff Diehl in November, has just hired a proudly self-proclaimed “undocumented DREAMer” as her deputy political director. Diehl called Healey’s actions “unbelievable.” Actually, Geoff, not so. It’s Massachusetts, remember?

Baby Binxed — City council prez Peter “Pee Pee” Marchetti scolded a fellow councilor (care to guess who) for pointing out that the presence or absence of a Jim Dandy “down there” determines a baby’s sex. Pee Pee objected. He  thinks gender is a matter of self-identification. THE PLANET to Pee Pee M and Pee Pee W, his VP: A baby’s lower plumbing determines a child’s sex. What, you don’t remember Bio 101? Not only does ontogeny recapitulate phylogeny but sex is a clear-cut biological determination. If someone wants to “self-identify” as a chipmunk or an orange, it’s their right. It’s also means they’re screwed up, fit the the Island of Broken Toys. Wonder what the two PPs identify as?

Happy Daze Are Here Again — A perusal of early budgetary actions by our Right Honorable Good Friends delivers nothing but bad news for The Kapanskis. The grim numbers: the mayor will enjoy a salary bump from this year’s $102,448 to $110,000 in FY23. She’s earned it: She brought e-scooters to town, with pickle ball coming. HR chief Michael Taylor, who in the past two FYs made $76,951 and $90,430 respectively, sees his FY23 haul balloon to $97,717. That’s for all the hard word he does surfing Tik Tok videos. Taylor’s workload is so heavy, taxpayers are funding a helper, the chief diversion officer, whose job is to divert diversity, subvert inclusion, and crush equity. Only two things matter: skin color and gender. The DIE officer, who now makes $51,610, jumps to $89,803. What? You mean you didn’t receive a 74% pay raise this year?

Important Issues — And THE PLANET bets you’re relieved to hear that Kapanski Kash is being spent on a commission that wants to change the state seal and motto. The snowflakes huddling in a safe room have been terribly “offended” by the current version, which shows a noble Indian brave with Miles Standish’s disembodied arm over his head holding a sword. The Latin motto has gotta go as well. We suggest the new logo depict Cherokee Lizzie “Warpath” Warren with the motto in Latin: Semper Ditzy.

Headline of the Week: Business Insider

A Black Lives Matter cofounder used $840,000 of the group’s funds to pay her brother for ‘security services’

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Time for race/gender equity in taxation. Historically, the IRS has disproportionately targeted White-American Men. White-American Men should not pay taxes again until at least 2185. #TaxEquity.

Huge raises that these politicians are giving themselves to cover the high costs of everything and they can continue to live their lives in paradise while many Americans struggle to survive. Joe Biden and his globalists in the managerial class are causing the problems so they can then say they have the solution. Globalist government will solve all of your problems. All you have to do is forget about having any freedom and submit to big government and the managerial class telling you how you will live your life and, most importantly, NEVER question their decisions, or you will be branded a terrorist as Biden is now portraying the Republicans who he is saying caused the Buffalo shooting by their extremist rhetoric. It had nothing to do with the far left and Biden saying that white people are racists and stirring up racial tensions. Everything the far left is doing, they continue to accuse others of doing.

Actually, the NAZI party used the Democratic Party (Jim Crow) as the model for justifying its mass pogrom. If the NAZI’s survived, they be just like Putin’s Soviet State. Always on the march to eradicate NAZIs everywhere. Good Germans were easy to find after WWII. I’ll go futher: the NAZI’s never disappeared from their Hegelian dens. I think that Good NAZIs are also easy to find.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made at least $24m (£17m) during their final year working in the White House.
The couple, who both served as senior advisers to former President Donald Trump during his four years in office, released their final financial disclosure reports from their time working in those roles.
The reports obtained by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington showed that Ms Trump and Mr Kushner disclosed between $23.7m (17.4m) and $120.6m (£88.4m) in combined outside income for the entirety of 2020 and through to 20 January 2021.

The couple’s reported income was less than in previous years, as they earned between $36.1m (£26.4m) and $157m (£115m) in 2019.
Recommended

Last year was the first time that Ms Trump did not report income from businesses that she ran before taking her position in the White House in January 2017.
Although they served in their roles for four years, Mr Kushner and Ms Trump were not paid a salary for their work at the White House.
Included in her income for 2020, Ms Trump received $1.4m (£1.02m) from her stake at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.
However, Mr Trump’s eldest daughter also saw her revenue from the hotel drop over the last 12 months, as it was down from $4m (2.9m) the previous year.
The decrease in income from Mr Trump’s hotel is likely to have been caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has mainly forced hotels to shut over the last 10 months.
The couple also disclosed information on substantial property holdings and their art collection, which is valued between $5m (£3.6m) and $25m (£18m).
Recommended

The disclosures also revealed a list of future interests for the couple, which include golf courses in Bali and Dubai, and hotel construction in New York City.

Since leaving their positions at the White House last month, Ms Trump and Mr Kushner have moved to Miami, Florida, renting a condo in a highly sought after area.
The condo will not be permanent, as the couple are building a home on Creek Island in Miami, after purchasing a two-acre plot for $31.8m (£23.3) last year.

“[Hunter] Biden made $5.8 million, more than half his total earnings from 2013 to 2018, from two deals with Chinese business interests.” NBC reported.
According to documents found on Hunter Biden’s hard drive and records released by Senate Republicans, Hunter spent $200,000 a month on luxury hotels, luxury cars, drugs and hookers.

Biden hid most of his payments to “The Big Guy,” hookers, strippers and drug dealers by withdrawing a lot of cash.
According to text messages found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, Joe Biden received between 10% and 50% of Hunter’s money.” – NBC News

So big Pete is weighing in on how to determine the sex of a person? Not sure about woman but the way I learned it was that MEN, “real men”, do what is right. They do their job as outlined in the job description. They DO NOT crawl up under the skirt of a puppet master and let that master lead them around by the nose like a lost indecisive child. They do NOT let their fellow citizens down by abandoning the job of oversight they ran for and were elected to do.

I have always made my own. For Christs sake gas is 98.6 percent water. You can add almost any kind of fruit that has fermented to the water and give it about 3 to 3 and a half hours to sit. Strain out the fruit skins and pits and pour your potion into your gas tank and cruize on down the road. You could even drive to North street though you should do so at your own peril. Now, if you don’t have the water part you are kind screwed there I guess cuz that is 98.6 percent of your product. It is like they are making it for you once you got your water man. You don’t need no stinkin gas station if you have water. And by the way, if you get Pittsfield tap water it already has chlorine in it (which is a gas in of itself) and you need not add anything.

What is it about Pittsfield that the common folk, or “Kapanski’s “ as stated here, always get the great screw job? Yet the same sad pathetic politicians keep getting re-elected? Are there shenanigans going on in the election booth? How do you get on the election board to vet the voting rolls? Or for that matter any city board? People should show up at all the meetings and question the council, and mayor!! Or are the Kapanski’s just done. They no longer have the desire or energy to fight back? It is obvious that the politicians don’t care about the tax paying citizens. Ask any of them where they think they can cut money out of the budget, your response will be very quiet with deer in the headlights facial expression. The US, except for MA, NY and CA, are seeing how important elections can be to the citizens. How after only 1 year an illegitimate leader can destroy the strongest economy in the world with all the executive orders. Does anyone know how many he has done? I can’t find it in the news anywhere. BTW tell are state reps to forget about the train from Boston and widen the pike! Put solar panels down the middle for all the electric cars we will have to drive

On the issue of elected and/or re-elected, too many times there’s only one name for each slot. It’s worse than a limited choice, because there is no choice. On the rare occasion when there are two names, one is always bad, and the other is worse. But at least you had the opportunity to pick your poison. But even that’s not a guarantee, because rumor has it that a 3 a.m. troll was creeping around the ballot boxes on election night in Pittsfield when tyer stole the election. And there’s a dopey embarrassing senile dementia patient sleeping in the white house of ameriKa despite the fact that not only has he lost his mind, but he also lost the election. Voter turnout in Pittsfield is always pathetic, but understandable when the preordained choices on ballot have already made your choice for you.

No one is waiting on Harrington to bow out. Not her style. Too much blind personal ambition and an unwillingness to learn a single thing about how to be a district attorney. Ask her if she has learned something and who her local mentors are and who she is working with in law enforcement to do something about the crime in Pittsfield. Zip.
Tim Shurgue has longtime experience and proven success as both a prosecutor and defense attorney. He understands criminals. He knows how they think, work and damage our community and he has the ability to stand up to them.
Andrea Harrington is the worst of the worst “progressive district attorneys.” She is not a prosecutor, rather, she is a polticial activist who hooked onto the mantle as a way to get votes without ever intending to do the job. She was quite clear. She would be the face of the office but then got rid of the people who were supposed to do the work in the office she was to be the face of. Ooops. She doesn’t need to care about the truth and justice because she has no capabilities to achieve it. What she does know is campaigning and personal ambition. That, she took courses in. That she went to Boston and paid careful attention to the ins and outs of running a political campaign. Then, she asked for a book in “how to be a district attorney” but unlike other DAs she never took the time to work her way up and understand how a DA’s office works. Her self described mentor David Sullivan trashed her in the media after she attacked a local judge and federal prosecutor. National politics are against her with DAs under indictment and recall across the country. Talk to people from New York City. It is a disaster with the election of Alvin Bragg. He has stopped prosecuting entire categories of crimes. No one goes to jail. Drugs are sold from cardtables. The subways are a mess. People got what they voted for, just as we did in Berkshire County.

I’d like to correct myself. The DA is not a political activist. She is a political opportunist. Andrea Harrington never paid attention to one single event, fundraiser, program etc for any of these criminal justice, drug treatment, or other issues in her life until it was convenient to a campaign. Further, one might notice she had nothing whatever to do with these causes and people when she was running for a different office as state senator.

Some unfortunate topics for the Kapanski’s to think about over this warm weekend, but I’ll give it a shot (no pun intended):

Good citizens: I’ve stated it before on here, Road Rage Rollins knows what type of liability DA Wrong Way is to her political career. Road Rage will use the support from gullible YT suckers like Wrong Way if it benefits her career. Locally, it’s no different than what Warren Dews did to Flat Tyer. Warren somehow obtained a $700,000 gift of ARPA money from another gullible sucker YT, Linda “Flat” Tyer. Wrong Way and Flat are not smart enough YT’s to realize when they are being used by LOC’s for the LOC’s benefit. Where I was growing up, that’s called “being a sucker.”

Trumped: Nothing more I can say Dan, that you didn’t already say. And to the TSC’s and Fizzlehead’s of The Planet, WITHOUT using Trump or 1/6/21, name ONE thing Xiden has done to better YOUR life today?

I’m sure I’ll get and answer from either of you, when I’m about to take a bong hit, in the middle of reading Helen “Handgun” Moon’s Boston Police report, while sitting in the front lobby of Warren and Harmony’s pot spa. Maybe I’ll be clothed, maybe not?

Papers: To add to it, our esteemed State Rep Tricia Farley-Country Buffet (D) is celebrating getting passage of the law allowing illegal aliens to obtain MA driver’s licenses. Remember what TFCB said too, “Chief Wynn supports this safety measure.” What safety measure? The illegals shouldn’t be here in the first place. What about my safety measures Tricia?

Fools like TCFB and Chief Wynn, are the reason WE as Kapanski’s now have to pay for a federal Real ID to travel. Laws like this in MA, have made our current DL’s, as valuable as the Mexican Peso.

Boned: For the two Pete’s to say they don’t know what a man or woman is, is absolutely foolish. Based on their lives, maybe the two of them have never seen a woman naked in person? I’ll concede that fact. And I’m not making fun of the gay community, so relax Bleak House/H.L. It’s not my thing, but to each his own.

To quote the late, great, John Candy, from the movie, “Plains, Trains, and Automobiles,” I’m willing to bet in their lives, the two Pete’s have done “more ball handling than Larry Bird.” Those two know what a man and a woman are, especially a man.

Happy Daze: What is the need of the DIE Office? There are plenty of federal laws on the books about giving LOC’s huge hiring advantages over YT. Especially in the Xiden administration.

From reading OB’s comments at the last CC meeting, it seems Flat has started the “YT is bad” brainwashing of city employees. OB put on training for city employees to become more inclusive to the LGBTRCDVGF#$%^& crowd. Here’s an idea OB, since you “look like one of the LOC’s” (as Earl “Dumpster” Persip likes to say) on the westside, how about you divert your time and resources of the DIE, to get LOC’s from stopping from SHOOTING and KILLING each other? I know it doesn’t quite fit the “YT is evil” mantra that race hustlers like Shirley Edgerton and Denny Powell preach, but I’m sure the family members of the victims would appreciate it.

Important: Lizzie Warren isn’t shaking and screaming like she just got shot with a taser over this issue, like she did when the Roe case notes were leaked? Won’t this take away from her Native American heritage? One that she used to advance her career, to include getting into law school and then teaching at Harvard Law.

I even remember when Lizzie and other snowflakes were calling Trump prejudice, because he called Lizzie “Pocahontas.” Trump called Lizzie out for the liar that she is.

I know TSC and Fizzle, Trump is “evil.” He called Lizzie a liar about her NA heritage. He told us that gas prices would soar over $5 under Xiden. He warned us that Xiden would crash the stock market. Trump is always wrong, hey fellas? I hope your feelings having recovered over the mean tweets….

The good citizens of Pittsfield need that OVERPAID taxpayer welfare funded recipient DIE negro from North Adams like the West Side needs another pistol packing juvenile LOC. And it would be one (good) thing if these L’sOC were just cannibalizing their own kind, but that’s not the case. A YT female was shot and killed as she sat in her vehicle on Columbus Ave. by a LOC, a YT male was shot and killed on King Street by a generational career criminal LOC, and the YT son, no angel, of a probation officer, was shot and maimed for life, by a tribe of L’sOC. Were L’sOC involved in the shooting at Brierwood? And that uncle tom “DUMPster” persip puts a gun to the heads of YT taxpayers every time he opens his watermelon month. I know that’s getting removed but it was fun anyway.

Yes. Warren claimed Nativeness when Harvard was pressured to diversify. Even published cookbook: Pow Wow Chow: 100 Ways to Make Cornbread to prove it. Her native Am genes (not actually a criteria for NA citizenships/identity) increased when Harvard/Academia needed them. It’s a natural biological response to sociological theories combined with economic opportunity. Then she did a gene test and discovered she was a boring WASP.

Both of those limp PEE PEE rejects are birth defects. SOMETHING WENT WRONG! Their birth defects of the brain are NOT NORMAL BECAUSE SOMETHING WENT WRONG! Those two impotent limp noodles are abnormal. During their development in utero something went wrong genetically, hormonally and/or environmentally. They can’t be faulted for that. Approximately 1 out of every 33 babies in the United States is born with a birth defect. Birth defects can be minor or severe. But those two can be faulted for being the dickwads they are. In the case of those two inferior pee pee rejects, those two are hideous side show freaks. Every two weeks and at budget time the taxpayers are ripped off by those hideous freaks for the rigged admission price to a side show none of us want to see. The majority did not vote for those fools. Getting a crooked seat on the dais by default is not the same as winning.

I wrote on this back in 2020. DeBlasio: “covid harmless. survives at most 1 minute in air.” Pelosi: “Enjoy Chinese New Years! Go out and celebrate.” NYC Health Dir: COvid will not be severe. No need for New Yorkers to change behavior. (Cuomo: I’m signing exec order to seize ventilators from upstate NY (Red counties) for NYC. They shouldn’t have ’em when NYC needs because they never prepared for SARS.” He never used the Javits Ctr or the boat Trump provided for treatment centers. They still have refrigerated trucks of corpses fulll of his crimes.

Trump: travel ban in Jan-Feb. (Biden objected!) Shut down eco March. Asked for covid checks (held up by Pelosi). mobilized a questionable vaccine process with controversial health impacts (critique).

Earl Persip is correct when he says you have to pay for good talent and to keep your staff. I’m not sure why this is a difficult concept, and it’s not different for city employees. This matters for private and public sector employees. It’s called equity. Do we expect city employees to work for free? Be realistic for once. You’re complaining about inflation but chastising for an employer giving its employees a raise to keep up with those rising costs? Come on.

Harrington’s prosecution of the Adams couple was politically motivated and so is her
decision to appeal. The Eagle is not having it. If she has a case, she should just go to the grand jury and do it over. She won’t because she can’t because she has no case.

 

BERKSHIRE EAGLE 5/21/22

Our Opinion: Appeal raises questions Berkshire DA should answer sooner rather than later

In a ruling sharply critical of the Berkshire District Attorney’s office, a judge this week dismissed an involuntary manslaughter case brought against Adams foster parents. “This is not the standard of conduct the court expects from the Commonwealth in grand jury proceedings,” Judge John Agostini wrote.
That was how a judge characterized the involuntary manslaughter case brought by Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington against an Adams couple after an infant in their care died from an infection. As a result, Superior Court Judge John Agostini dismissed the indictments against foster parents Cassandra Barlow-Tucker and Matthew Tucker, finding that the DA failed to present sufficient evidence to show a grand jury there was probable cause that either of them committed a crime. Granting a motion to dismiss indictments is uncommon, but what’s rare is the stinging comment aimed at the DA in the ruling: “This is not the standard of conduct the court expects from the Commonwealth in grand jury proceedings.”

We echoed that sentiment after the ruling was issued, and urged District Attorney Harrington to apologize to the Tuckers. In his 17-page ruling, Judge Agostini flagged the inappropriate handling of their case, which District Attorney Harrington directly prosecuted. The charges carried the threat of 20 years in prison and a chilling downstream effect on current and would-be foster parents, not to mention the ridicule people naturally attach to those charged with harming children.

The Berkshire District Attorney’s office believes a local judge erred in dismissing manslaughter charges brought against two Adams foster parents related to the death of an infant in their care. The appeal comes after the judge faulted the office for its handling of the case.
In lieu of apologizing, however, District Attorney Harrington is appealing. Last week, the district attorney formally moved to contest Judge Agostini’s dismissal of the Tuckers’ indictments. On what grounds, we don’t know: The pro forma notice does not specify the argument for a higher court’s review. Legally, the DA’s Office doesn’t have to articulate grounds for its appeal at this juncture. Ethically, however, District Attorney Harrington owes the public some straightforward answers on why she believes a case that prompted such an extraordinarily strong judicial rebuke is worth prolonging in its current state.
Judge Agostini concluded that the district attorney failed in two ways. First, the prosecution did not present sufficient evidence to establish probable cause that the Tuckers had committed a crime in this case. Second, it presented irrelevant and highly prejudicial evidence to the grand jury aimed at assassinating the Tuckers’ characters.
Berkshire County deserves to know on what grounds District Attorney Harrington disputes Judge Agostini’s conclusions that led to the case’s dismissal. What evidence ostensibly overlooked or minimized by the judge shows criminal conduct by the defendants? Specifically, how does evidence of Ms. Barlow-Tucker’s 2- to 3-year-old blog posts or receipt of DCF payments show criminal conduct in 2021?
We fear answers will not be forthcoming any time soon. On other occasions, the DA has adamantly refused to discuss the details of ongoing cases. She cannot use this excuse to avoid addressing these questions, because these answers will have to be included in public court filings necessary to her appeal. We are profoundly concerned that these filings might be made after the upcoming election.
Judge Agostini’s order left open the opportunity for District Attorney Harrington to seek new indictments if her office is able to present more or better evidence of the Tuckers’ guilt to another grand jury. This would likely be a swifter process, and it would allow the prosecution to eliminate or carefully tailor the evidence deemed improper and prejudicial in Judge Agostini’s ruling. Instead, the DA’s Office waited until the last possible day to appeal Judge Agostini’s ruling. Given the simplicity of the appeal notice, this timing raises the inference that the district attorney may be trying to shunt this matter aside until after this year’s DA election.

While Judge Agostini’s ruling shifts the spotlight to the performance of the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, District Attorney Harrington was the one who brought that spotlight to this case. In March 2021, she summoned the media to the courthouse and announced the Tuckers’ indictments while courting microphones and cameras for public pronouncements about “seeking justice.” Anyone truly concerned with that mission knows that our justice system gives immense discretion to district attorneys, and the judge’s unambiguous ruling in this case adds to the concerning questions about how that discretionary power is wielded by the county’s top law enforcement officer.
District Attorney Harrington owes her constituents some answers to those questions before they decide later this year who should run that office. For starters, she should publicly specify the merits of her office’s appeal in this case, instead of trying to run out the clock on it.

Saw a couple of Facebook posts today that really got my blood boiling. First someone asked Food Critic Pete White where the taxpayers Excise tax was going and he answered he did not know that he would have to ask Bowtie Kerwood. How long has this little weasel been on the CC, and how long has he been the Vice President and he does not know the answer to a simple question. Shows how much these elected CC imbeciles know about budgeting, no wonder they just pass the budget.

The second post was even worse. A picture of Flat Tyer posting a sign Tyer for Mayor on a lawn. God help Pittsfield if she is planning to run again. Us taxpayers need to start a Go Fund Me to hire a private security guard to keep Assistant Mayor Barry out of Michele Benjamin’s office during the election. Unfortunately there seems to be enough a** kissers to try to vote her in again. Hope someone reputable will run against her. City can’t take much more of her.

A high end tapas restaurant in that location will never succeed. I give it one summer, a rough winter and closed by Spring.

Just read where the state is trying to figure out what type of agency should they create to oversee the East-West railroad…. I have the answer no agency. The MBTA is in debt and being investigated by the Feds so we don’t want another patronage created no show agency in MA. We actually don’t want nor need an East-West railroad system. Americans like to hop in their cars at their domicile and be able to arrive at their destination without getting out of their vehicle of transportation. I have no idea why this has been getting pushed through government, is it the Chinese, first for profit then for takeover? This is an expensive item that is unneeded and unwanted, how can it be stopped? Not sure if this will get past the Ministry of Truth like my last few posts but I find it funny how the First Minister ofTruth lost her job once it was found out that she should have been censored off media due to the lies, er I mean misinformation she was spreading!
