PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION JUNE 10-12, 2022) — THE PLANET watched the Jan. 6 congressional hearings Thursday night, also know as “The Bad, the Worse, and the Ugly.”

Forgive us, but we got confused. Before 15 minutes were up, time for some Democrat fame, we thought we were watching a Bela Lugosi film, where as the mad doctor he expresses his love of Poe by luring the young lovers into a room where the walls begin to slowly move in on the lovebirds for a s-q-i-s-h. It looks hopeless. No way can they escape.

That’s what those poor, desperate folks on the partisan congressional panel brought to mind: People who realize the walls are closing in and soon.

The lovers had a couple minutes and, of course, this being only a movie, enjoyed a last-second rescue. The Democrats have until Nov. 6 before they’re crushed, and as it stands now, hopes for a last-minute reprieve seem unlikely. In the extreme. Nov. 6 dates the mid-term elections, when, given the how the once-honorable party has caved to a small group of radicals on the Loon Left (see, for example, AOC, the Squad, Liz Warren, and the like), the Dems will meet their fate. It won’t be pretty.

These hearings won’t fool many if any. They do, however, exemplify how EVERYTHING is within the D.C. Beltway must serve a political purpose, before and exclusive of all else.

Pure politics.

In prime time.

In what amounts to an hours-long “infomercial” pushing the political equivalent of Ron Popeil’s Hair In A Can.

For a committee with no power to prosecute.

———- ooo ———-

Pelosi et. al. feel Nov. 6 closing in. Despite controlling both houses and the White House, they now are reckoning with what the rest of America knows: They have made a mess, a massive toxic spill that has derailed this once-great country. Issues? You name it. Inflation, gas prices, a failed foreign policy. The fomented Jan. 6 spectacle was a riot. BLM looting, killing, and torching everything in sight for months on end was “a peaceful protest.”

Stop THE PLANET if you’ve heard this one before.

The Dems resemble desperate, balding folks who will resort to any means to get a rug. To use a football analogy, the 1/6 hearings amount to a Hail Mary pass. The odds of success are lower than a golfer making a hole-in-one, but when you’ve got nothing else, what the heck?

There. THE PLANET has used up enough photons on this Carnival of Fools. Time to move on to the Lower 40 and tend to the bees.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

I didn’t watch it, but saw small bits of it on other news channels and that was all I could take. RINO Liz Cheney saying that 1/6 wasn’t spontaneous, but was planned. Duh, we all know that so why didn’t Pelosi and Bowser have heavy security in place since they knew it days in advance? Cheney then goes on to blame it all on President Trump. These people are truly disgusting. They don’t realize that a reckoning is coming for the far left agenda whether Trump runs in 2024 or not and 2022 elections are in just a few months.

You can’t handle the truth! This “attack” was pre-planned, and Pelosi knew it. Pelosi denied the extra police and security measures, and Trump authorized 20,000 troops days before, pelosi failed to request them as did mayor of DC, and trump told his supporters to peacefully protest. Case effing closed pal. Dan nailed it, and you and your ilk can’t handle the truth. Oh Sweet November, how I can’t wait.

The far left will not give up on their mission to take down Trump. New York is forcing him to give a deposition on their made up charges. People arrested from 1/6 are begging to be released due to horrible political prisoner treatment. One man has committed suicide because they destroyed his life after 1/6 and he was told to enter the Capitol by the police.

Are you saying that the solution to the looting was to overturn the election? That was the best way to handle it? By the way, I am very much against the looting and burning and mayhem. If the police or owners of the business s took up arms I would have been in favor of that. And I am a fan of Kyle Rittenhouse.
But what happened on Jan 6th was about Donald Trump becoming king and had nothing to do with looting in my opinion.

True Dan. Unarmed people doing a coup?!? So stupid, but Pelosi and Schumer are playing Americans for fools just like they did with the Trump/Russia collusion hoax and so many gullible people believed their lies. They are hoping for the same in 2022 elections and 2024 because their lies won them the 2020 election.

If you overturn an election through force, bullets or no bullets, it is a coup. If you had only watched it perhaps you would have more perspective. But it saddens me that you guys do not even trust what the police were saying and the video they had backing it all up. Especially Mr Kitterman.

There is over 14,000 hours of video footage the 1/6/2021 Demonrat witch hunt refuses to release. Why is that Fizze?

Why didn’t they show available footage of Roseanne Boyland being murdered by Capitol Police, and Americans trying to save her, then being beaten by Capitol Police?

The Capitol Police, and the 1/6/2021 committee, are more disgusting than Derick Chauvin

eye witness account:

“This democrat government cremated Rosanne Boyland’s body before her family got the chance to see it in order to cover up that Capitol police murdered her!

THEY MURDERED HER

I know that for a fact because I was holding her hand while it was happening. I felt much of what she felt as we were both getting crushed to death. We were dying side by side until Jake Lang and the J6 political prisoners pushed back the Capitol police and pulled my body out.

Say her name, Liz Cheney!

Say her name, Nancy Pelosi!

Stop telling lies about those Capitol police officers being victims. They were mercilessly murdering people in that tunnel and the Trump supporters stepped up, stopped them, and saved our lives!”

Ok, you and I have been through this before, bygone days. Choose a better nomiker, change your language, and improve your logic if you want a new identity.

I hate the call and response argument, it’s minor debate, but since you are here to waste time, I will expend little.

“If you overturn an election through force, bullets or no bullets, it is a coup”

Define Force. Force is to try to make something happen that ought not to happen. EG: Dad: “Son, don’t force it or it will break.”
Asking for a parliamentary and constitutional rebuke of suspect electors is not force, it’s due process. That was Pres. Trump’s and Pence’s task that day. It was rudely interrupted by those who refused to let that process happen. FACT: The Constitution was constructed according to Biblical and historical knowledge of human fallibility. The Founding Fathers understood they could not ‘write’ them away. Hence, they understood the structures they built were only good so long as those with power respect them. Further: Herbert Spencer had one good idea apart from many bad. He argues that a totalitarian leader only enters by the invitation of the sheep. This observation has predicted every revolt, coup, and dictatorship since he wrote those words prior 1900.

“Overturn an election”
The election happened 11/4/21 but they kept reeling in ballots weeks after the deadline. As of midnight, Trump had won (well, Biden closed a 100,000 gap at 11:59 in just 20 minutes or so just as Bernie Sanders, Communist Superb, had precisely predicted two weeks prior.) Supreme Court demands that late ballots harvested be sequestered in PA were ignored. So, those events make questions. Was the PA (just PA here) election overturned subsequent to the legal end date? If these things did happen, they constitute a forcing of process – a coup. (Note a notorious boss and Philly ballot dealer actually got tried and convicted.)

“bullets or no bullets”
Only bullets fired were from Pelosi’s guards. They also used everything else in their arsenals including shod feet, knuckles, etc….

“it is a coup”

Well, look who’s president.

You need to take a break – I see you; I’m disappointed. I had thought you were a man.

Don’t respond, ‘fizzlehead’, – this is written not for you but for the board. The Anti Postmodern Revolutionary Front has identified you as an irrelevant abstraction of South County lint.

Police are injured in the performance of their duty everyday. There are Pittsfield cops on disability retirement.

If a capitol cop got a sore elbow from beating demonstrators too bad.

Capitol police are in the same class as mall cops.

Pelosi was aware of the numbers expected as was the DC mayor. Both turned down national guard help. So much is on them.

NO cops died from injuries received on 1-6.

Capitol police shot one demonstrator dead and beat another one to death. They are a democrat hack organization.

Coup was Nov 3-4 2020, plain and simple.

The protest 1/6/2021, was because Americans were deprived of a free and fair election. It is their right to protest. The Nov 2020 Selection was a sham, fraud, and hoax upon Americans. Never before has there been such blatant election fraud.

The event of 1/6/2021 was not a riot; complete with looting, arson, rape, and murders, like those riots endorsed by liberal/progressives the whole summer of 2020.

Mr Biden is not a duely elected official. And Americans have zero faith in fair elections this upcoming fall. At best, the “ball” will get passed unto corrupt RINOs, who are one in the same with the corrupt liberals.

They were far worse than Derick Chauvin. They outright murdered Roseanne Boyland.

People who tried to save her, are in the Pelousey’s/DNC Gulag without due process , in squalid conditions for > 18 months now.

Jake Lang is one of these political prisoners. His “crime” was trying to save Roseanne Boyland, who the Capitol Police were gassing, suffocating and beating. This is all caught on video tape the 1/6/2021 “witch hunt/clown show” never shows the public. Witnesses who who at the bottom of the Capitol Police pile of abused citizens have also came forward. Did Mz Cheney allow them to testify last night? That don’t fit the “insurrection” false narrative.

Not since Jimmy Carter:

Everything went up.
Food at home prices climbed 10% year over year!
This is the worst number since 1981.
The inflation rate was 1.4% when Joe Biden came into office.” -TGP

“This is not a recovery… Total employment today is 800,000 lower than it was in 2020… This is not even a catch-up of where we were before. If you take the trendline from February 2020 on up we’re 5 million jobs short from where we should be had we just been on that trendline. This is a catastrophic economy. Whoever wrote that piece for Biden in the Wall Street Journal doesn’t know straightup from siccum.” – Art Laffer

Energy independent USA 2 years ago, now……..

“Gas prices hit another new all-time record high at $4.986 per gallon on Friday
The price of gas has gone up 22¢ a gallon in the last week!”

“This was entirely created by Joe Biden and Democrats.
And this was intentional

They are destroying the country with inflation, record gas prices, insane domestic and foreign policy and open borders.” -TGP

They have more goodies to sell us over the next few months according to Liz Cheney who will never win reelection in her state and has been taken into the far left fold with a guaranteed job at CNN more than likely. Nance Pelosi refused to let anyone onto the committee whose goal wasn’t to GET TRUMP. They have no interest in the truth like why Chuck Schumer ignored the warning he was given the day before 1/6 about potential violence. Chuck sat on it and ignored the potential for violence to use it to take down Trump.

Satire…

“WASHINGTON, D.C.—The House of Representatives passed a resolution Friday to establish a June 9th Committee to investigate the poor ratings performance of the January 6th Committee.

Democratic leadership is reportedly thrilled to get back to work for the American people by finding out why the American people don’t care what they have to say.

“This is the work that really matters,” said President Joe Biden. “I for one would like to find out what TVs are and how people get inside them. No, I’m serious.”……..

…..”Rep Adam Schiff, who has a seat on the Jan 6th committee, has also joined this new committee. “It’s not a conflict of interest because I have the memory of a goldfish,” he said. “I make hyperbolic statements about everything equally. No favoritism here!”
Schiff went on to condemn the low ratings of the Jan 6th committee as the final nail in the coffin of democracy. He then tried quoting Star Wars but ended up alienating half the fanbase.”………….

FLOSSMOOR, Ill. — Police in south suburban Floosmoor were called to the home of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx earlier this month after a domestic dispute between her and her husband allegedly turned physical.

Foxx’s husband called 911 shortly after 10 p.m. on June 4, according to records from Flossmoor police obtained by WGN through the Freedom of Information Act,

“[Foxx’s husband] explained that Kimberly got mad about something that was posted on Facebook that he did,” one of the responding officers wrote in a report. “Kimberly asked him to leave and he refused.”

Foxx’s husband said that’s when she grabbed him by the collar and threw down a video game controller he was holding, according to police records. He went on to tell police that Foxx slapped him on the left cheek.

When the mayor, Barry and Kerwood found out that gas for all city vehicles was going to triple, and that heating oil for all its buildings was going to triple, they immediately asked for $500,000 for a pickle ball court. They are not worrying one effing bit about the budget because they can tax the citizenry into the ground if they feel like it. And it seems they do.

TDS I hope you investigate things told to you by the Misinformation News Outlets. In a court case about another election an expert found 9 ways the Dominion machines could be compromised. Many vote counters have shared stories and have video evidence on malfeasance. I don’t know why you are unwilling to explore what people are saying who were there. I also don’t know why you are afraid of people showing up to vote with a valid ID, it’s how it has been done for centuries. Also would like to know why Pittsfield voting roles can’t be shared and more independent people get on the election commission to vet the roles. Now would be the time to start

The story about domestic violence at the residence of DA Foxx of Chicago only saw the light of day because of a TV station foi. This is a prosecutor of one of the largest cities in America involved in a domestic violence incident. Foxx, along with DA Harrington, are part of a group called Fair and Just Prosecution that claims to support progressive district attorneys across the country. Harrington has promised to bring “heightened focus and sophistication to the investigation of domestic violence” in Berkshire County.

So here is what Foxx said:
Foxx and her husband issued a statement to WGN News that said, “This is a personal family matter, and we ask that you provide our family with respect and privacy. “

This neanderthal message about domestic violence is one of the worst things anyone can say, let alone a supposedly “woke prosecutor.” It is exactly how domestic violence perpetrators hide. It is exactly how victims have no voice. It is how things escalate and people die. Harrington herself has stood on this very pulpit as she announced her “domestic violence high risk team.” Foxx should be denounced by every prosecutor for her comment. Yet we hear crickets from fellow progressive Andrea Harrington. Except for here:

DA Andrea Harrington

@harringtonforda
· Mar 11
When ⁦@SAKimFoxx⁩ speaks, I listen. While the government spent a small fortune prosecuting this, the families of more than 50 Black women murdered in Chicago over the last 20 years await justice. In Jussie Smollett case, our justice system failed.

I don’t get Harrington’s twitpost. While the Chicago DA was under investigation she couldn’t do any work for victims? I guess the reason the police didn’t arrest anyone at the Foxx house is because the DA won’t prosecute it. Got it.

I remember “pickleball”‘. About a year ago – I forgot the date- I wrote and mentioned what a ridiculous game this is to spend limited city dollars on. Now it is back and looks like it has more support than before. What are we thinking of? This is a ridiculous game. I won’t call it a sport because it is not. It is something older people play and that is fine with me. What is not fine is some folks want city taxpayers’ dollars to pay for this so-called sport.I know the main sport of many Pittsfield leaders is pocket pool. No problem. Enjoy yourselves. But please, have an understanding and sympathy for ordinary taxpayers. They can’t take much more.

Hello Chuck, Please go to the Open Mic at Tuesday (6/14)’s Pittsfield City Council meeting and tell them to please vote down Mayor Linda Tyer’s proposed municipal operating budget. What are Pittsfield taxpayers getting in return for their local tax dollars? Level 5 public schools, violent crime on the streets, substandard city services, state and local political corruption, the PEDA debacle, and so on. Please tell the Ruling Elites who run Pittsfield politics that they have no understanding and sympathy for ordinary taxpayers, and that they cannot take much more from your fixed income budget. You would be the hero you have always been over the generations you have contributed to Pittsfield. Your heart was and is always in the right place, Chuck! Thank you for everything over the years.

If they really cared about seniors they would cut their property taxes.
As a senior who has lived most of my life in Pittsfield I have minimal trash to be picked up and I diligently recycle. I do not even put out the recycling until it is near full so the truck does not need to stop each week.
Do not use that much water. Have never called the fire department for any reason (thankfully). Maybe called the police once. Drive minimally on the city roads. Have never had a child in the city school system.
And yet MY property taxes are not so different than my neighbor who has three kids in the city schools, three cars on their roads, and use considerably more of the city’s water and sewer services.
Isn’t it odd that the mayor can find all kinds of reasons to give tax breaks for this one or that one but seniors using much less of the city resources are undeserving of any such break?
I have no problem paying taxes. But there needs to be some equity. I should not be subsidizing someone who uses many more resources or the “business” getting juicy long term tax reductions while giving very little in return.

There are limited dollars and I would rather allocate limited tax dollars to youngsters instead of something as ridiculous as pickleball.

I’ve heard it all:

President Joe Biden on Friday said people thought he was “exaggerating” about Russia invading Ukraine.

Prior to the invasion, reports said Zelenskyy thought Biden’s comments were creating panic.

The US national intelligence director said this week Biden declassified intel to convince allies.

“Nothing like this has happened since World War II. I know a lot of people thought I was maybe exaggerating,” Biden said, according to the outlet. He added the US had data that showed Russian President Vladimir Putin was going to invade.

“There was no doubt,” Biden continued. “And Zelenskyy didn’t want to hear it.”

Prior to launching a full-scale invasion on February 24, Russia spent weeks building up its troops on the Ukrainian border, prompting speculation over whether or not they were preparing to invade, an allegation the Kremlin denied.

At no time did the entire world not think if Biden became president, Russia would invade Ukraine.
The whole point of sending aid to Ukraine was to ward off an invasion.
Ukraine was begging for weapons in the early days of the Biden admin because of a pending invasion. It was BIDEN who wasn’t sending more aid preemptively.

How the media twists this around is incredible.

Dan, Looking forward to Monday’s story about the “Pickleball Budget”. I see that in the fiscal year 2021 Pittsfield’s portion of the cannabis pie is $45,364,167. That’s over $45 million, folks, not thousands. How is this being spent? Why can’t ALL cannabis dollars be applied to lower real estate taxes?

Admit I am not sure how many pot shops are in Great Barrington, but with so many pot shops in Pittsfield, I find the difference in amount taken in a bit strange. Great Barrington took in $26,064,702 more than Pittsfield. That seems to me quite a difference. The way Pittsfield does their vibrant and dynamic Tyer/Clairmont/Kerwood accounting, something just seems fishy.

As usual, Dan is correct. My point is to allocate all cannabis tax dollars to real estate tax reduction. Educated Pittsfield politicians may set up any system with a percentage for allocation but this will change when you are looking at the next headline. My point is a simplistic approach. All cannabis dollars returned to the city be allocated to real estate tax reduction. I’m looking for a simplistic approach to the allocation of monies returned to Pittsfield. I know our city council has intellectual discussions on the allocation of tax dollars. I’m just trying to simplify things.
