PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY SEPT. 7, 2022) — Let us just say “See? Just like we indicated.

Keeping this one brief:

  • HMS Shugrue sinks S.S. Andrea OutTheDooria to the bottom of the drink.
  • Bowler bowls Alf into the gutter with perfect game.

Congrats to both winners. Well deserved twin victories.

More on post-election tidbits on The Weekend Edition, but first …

———- ooo ———-

Having kept The Secret Squadron and our inimitable Z-Agents on O.T. during the election, THE PLANET is sure you won’t mind a day of levity and light. No politics from us today. The Weekend Edition is when we will offer post-prelim and November thoughts.

First a lovely cup of tea.

Everyone. Calm down, breath, settle in, and join THE PLANET in a fresh cup of tea, won’t you? (Photo By Lisa Valenti)

 

 

Next, we share the secret publication, “Mystery in Space.” Its cover depicts one of our Z-Agents at the controls. The ray-beam identified Wrong Way at Space Enemy Number One, even though she attempted to fool our Mighty Machine by self-identifying as a man. From left, Bowler, Barbalunga, and Shugrue look on. Far right, Adam Webster, Andrea’s campaign consultant.

Finally, you’ve been asking for it: A behind-the-scenes look at one of our control panels with which we control elections and determine the flow of public affairs.  At least that what the hysterics of the campaigns contents. THE PLANET rigs contests, as this detailed photograph proves …

… NOT! We deliver information, facts, and opinions on that information, those facts. That is all. So everyone, before November momentum gets rolling, and you start climbing all over us, chill and enjoy some steaming chai.

A proprietary look at THE PLANET’s secret control panel that governs the actions of our Almighty Army of Robots. This is all censors allow for security purposes.

And of course, feel free to share your thoughts about yesterday and anything else, for that matter.

This is the bias we are talking about. Alf was a blustering babbling fool. He lost the debates because everything he said was a lie. When fact checked, he got his ass handed to him.
Just because you lie and make up facts and make baseless accusations it doesn’t mean you won the debate.

ooo -you’re a closet supporter!

What might I dare imagine which ritual acts you perform over Barbalian iconography in a closet? I can’t. You wouldn’t have taken my Alf sign for your closet did you? I was hoping to use it after the election.

By the way, the art is very fine. It harkens back to the golden age of American draftsmanship, human figure, and entertainment. When the three had hit its simultaneous apex, America was great. We were fine. Everything was fine. But short lived compared to grecian or italian scales. For soon after that glorious decade of Hogarthian cartooning, in the 1980’s, the human form was traded for embalmed wastes. With that, entertainment degraded into filth and morosity. And draftsmanship fails on the classic tenets of form, composition, contrast. The blame really falls on Hogarth’s own head. He was lazy, a profiteer and pirate preying on the impressionable youth. He gave them a small gift of facility in exchange for short circuited expression. He violated the law of complex convexity in the organic form, and he substituted counterfeit platonic form for the primal ones which require a strong degree of perceptual diligence, mental proportion, and true form. In short, he was a comic Marxist.

Give me back my sign, or I continue this lecture Friday morning.

The corrupt career politicians all predictably won their primary elections in predictable Pittsfield politics and beyond in the beautiful Berkshires. Why am I NOT surprised? John Barrett is a lifelong political hack in North Adams. Tom Bowler is the Supreme Emperor of the dynastic jail on Cheshire Road in Pittsfield. Tim Shugrue finally won the D.A. election after 18 long years of wanting the plum position. Meanwhile, the fictional Mary Jane and Joe Kapanski will be paying all of these same Bags of Hot Air an excessive amount of their tax dollars for more “Business as usual” in return for unsafe streets full of violent crime, Level 5 public schools, severe economic inequality from generations of population loss and thousands of long lost living wage jobs in the postindustrial rust belt Berkshire County distressed economy, and the disconnected limousine latte drinking liberals such as Sherwood Guernsey and the Lexus luxury car owner Mayor Linda “Gated Community” Tyer, etc. who run the one political (Democratic) Party system of state and local government. To illustrate, for the common people, it would be like winning a nuclear war in a radiation-poisoned Earth run by John Barrett, Tom Bowler, Tim Shugrue, and the rest of the failed political establishment. I am not so cruel as to say, “Congratulations!”, because I am and always will be a caring good person with lofty democratic ideals who wishes everyone to have a chance in life and a voice in their government.

I like Melle too. His points are actually the opposite of his points which I find both interesting and aggravating.

Also, this is not a far right blog. In the ’80’s this would be a ridiculous blog because no one would even admit the things discussed could possibly take place because mostly they didn’t. We had corruption. That’s normal. But, we rarely had DA’s that have not one workday of experience and deliberately let criminals rule the streets, the pervasive metastasizing debauched language of the left, and child predators preying using the classrooms as hunting grounds.

No, this is not right wing here. This place is a refuge from the horror.

Will be interesting to see if Tim hires anyone who left when Harrington fired everyone. A lot of great people were booted.

He should make Richard Locke first assistant DA if he is not bringing Paul back.

Most of those people are working in Springfield including Paul a few went into private practice. I could see the people working in Springfield returning because of the drive and price of gas. The others that went into private practice will probably depending on how the practice is going and if they are making money. Alot also service the state because of the benefits, no overhead, no billing etc.

Some advice for the candidates who lost.

Harrington, all you had to do was not screw up. You were gifted a job, you could have kept forever, if you kept your head down, made incremental changes, and learned your job from more experienced (read:every other) lawyer.
When your sole qualification is you have a vagina, and that was what your die hard supporters were pushing (“I’m voting for a woman” , “We need a female DA”, and support from some mommy PAC) you bring zero to the table. Judy Knight is a woman and a professional, Andrea Glover is a woman and a professional, both are infinitely more qualified than you. You are not unique in your gender or possession of a vagina, just in your abject lack of experience.
Stay out of politics, you ruined your gift that was given to you and are damaged goods. Forever tainted by your ridiculous displays of hubris and incompetence. You were simultaneously the first female DA in Berkshire county and the worst. Those who didn’t vote for you are certainly not blaming your gender, just your character and competence.

Alf, ohhhh Alf, you had way too many people telling you you’d win based on your dad’s tactic of bullying and buying people off. We all know you and saw right through you from the beginning.
A word to the wise, when you were called out in a State report on patronage jobs, when you got fired from North county because of poor performance, attacking a sitting Sheriff about patronage jobs just brought attention to your own failings.
Your best best, stay out of politics, enjoy your no show job, and try and stay out of trouble. Odds are even that you’ll end up over at the jail still, but as a resident, not an employee.

We the people have spoken and Berkshire County is better and safer for it.

Very few people retire at 62 and many keep going into their early 70’s. Just look at Washington politicians, many are in their late 80’s. Washington politicians are ridiculous for working that long, but working until your late 60’s or early 70’s is very common.

At some point she needs to realize she has more money than she needs and she needs to devote her life to a higher purpose.

For me, the most shocking part of this election is Bowler blew Barbalunga out of the water much harder than Shugrue blew Andrea out of the water. I thought that would be a landslide and the fact man-child kept bringing up the poor women in Chicopee would’ve swayed more of the Williamstown G/B Lenox libs.

4. I don’t know if they are cis or not, they may be, they may be gay, bi, gender fluid.

I do have to give credit to Helen “Handgun” Moon. She torched DA Wrong Way when Handgun left the office.

It appears Helen “Handgun” Moon got paid off to keep quiet. Nobody heard a peep from Handgun during this election cycle. Not to mention, Handgun is a “bored” member of the NAACP and they were big advocates for DA Wrong Way.

It appears Handgun will come out unscathed from this and financially better. The rest of the rats will all drown. Rats like Dina, Andy, and Karen, will all go down with the SS Wrong Way.

For today, I will not call Helen “Handgun” Moon. For today and today only, she will be Helen “Rose Dewitt Bukater” Moon. And the rest of the office are a bunch of Jack Dawson’s.

Absolutely. You have to be a real POS POC to earn a name like “Handgun.”

Trying to capitalize on the George Floyd movement, Helen Moon posted a lie on her Facebook page about being arrested at gunpoint by two YT male Boston cops. She emphasized that she was removed at gunpoint, arrested, and tossed in the city jail, strictly for being a POC driving in Boston during the nighttime hours.

As tell posted above, I’ve even offered to kick in $1,000 dollars for her to post or provide The Planet with the Boston Police arrest/incident number.

Because (1) it never happened, (2) if it did, whoever she was with, just committed a major felony crime to be taken out at gunpoint.

With Handgun growing up in the upper-middle class of the Boston burbs, I’d say the safe bet is with #1.

Helen?

Rose Dewitt Bukater must have been paid well with the NDA from Harrington when she left. She didn’t say anything during the campaign. I had posted prior that I thought she would be a thorn to Harrington after the breakup.

OP, she sure was. Once she jumped on with the NAACP, she suddenly developed a case of amnesia about her falling out with DA Wrong Way.

That’s a good group to teach her about “consulting fees,” defunding the police, and laundering taxpayer money. I’m sure Helen “Handgun” Moon will ply her trade well. She’s already ahead of the game. She unsuccessfully tried to defund the Pittsfield Police. I certainly remember Handgun.

Could you imagine how dangerous Pittsfield and Berkshire County would be, if that dimwit’s proposal to defund PPD had gone through?

I believe the NAACP played a part in keeping HG in check during the da’s race. They didn’t want anymore negative things than were already out there hurting their candidate WW. HG’s game of what’s good for her is so obvious .

It’s not illegal to use taxpayer money for unnecessary or unneeded travel expenses. Shirley Edgerton just did it. And Shirley flew to another continent.

She used a good portion of her $500,000 ARPA gift for her ROPES program, to go to Africa, so Shirl could “explore her roots.”

I could be wrong though about Shirley using her ROPES grift. I forgot she and Warren both “consulted” for the Berkshire Black Economic Council (BBEC), on helping to bring the traveling dance troupe to town last month.

The ironic part, Shirley and Warren, are both on the BBEC executive board, but still are “consulting” (between the lines-receiving consulting fees) for the BBEC????

Both are either so brazen, they don’t fear getting caught laundering money? Or are both too dumb to realize they leave a paper trail as wide as the Grand Canyon?

All the familiar faces of the so called leadership of the black and brown community were seen. Wondering how many others in the community, if asked were invited to explore their roots? Any oversight of these monies?

I have seen those pictures. At the bare minimum, I would expect Shirley to present some doctoral-level dissertation to her ROPES group and others, on this trip to Africa.

I’m sorry, but to “explore your roots” is taxpayer fraud. What did she learn on this trip, that an internet search and some old fashion book research, could not teach her? African cuisine and dialect do not count either.

I know Tim Shugrue is walking into a mess, but one day, I’d love to have to see Shirley, Warren, and company, provide their financial records to a grand jury.

Fizz,
Your right she doesn’t understand.

Harrington had run on the same progressive platform that won her the office in 2018: using diversion programs rather than jail for low-level crimes, eliminating cash bail and seeking treatment for drug abusers instead of incarceration. 

Harrington said she is really proud of the race that she ran and the work that the Berkshire DA’s office has done in her term and that she hopes it continues. She’s not sure why that work didn’t resonate with voters. 
 
“That is so hard for me to comprehend because I feel like we ran a race that was based on values and emotion that was really powerful,” she said. “I think maybe some people here in the community just are not ready for the kind of work that we have been doing at the DA’s office.”

She doesn’t get it, backpacks and water bottles and wishful thinking don’t cut it.

She didn’t accomplish anything she set out to do.
Cash bail was down but the more egregious dangerous hearings sky rocketed.
Not one person in her pretrial diversion program has completed the courses or treatment. NOT ONE.
She didn’t use diversion programs for shoplifters and low level crimes she deferred those things and kicked them down the road.
She had two free years of no trials, she came up with no meaningful programs and in fact disbanded well-received and working programs.
Thank god for Covid!!! Can you imagine the damage she’d have done if her office was trying cases for 4 full years.

No word on where one might safely park their car on a dark night in one of the most dangerous parts of the city. May sure to let the air out of your tires temporarily so the catalytic converter thieves cannot get under it. Halloween themed Kevlar vests will be in vogue for the parent who loves his child. Shot spotters will be disabled so as not to embarrass the mayor and also there will be no room for emergency vehicles to get through if your loved ones gets shot anyway.

Probably start at the Roundabout after christening it with a bottle of Boons Farm wine. Then the marchers will open and close ranks, back and forth as they come upon the bump outs. Many will be wearing a mask though that is not unusual to the area especially during hold ups. Andrea encourages shop lifters to mix and mingle along with the pick pockets, homeless and pan handlers.
Zero city officials have committed to be in attendance although there will plenty of folk dressed as police officers. (some real and some not so real)

Please do not ask to see the city budget for this iconic cultural event as it is kept in Matts lock box in a vault with six combinations in the city hall cellar right next to the gymnasium.

Legal career
Prior to becoming district attorney, she was a civil litigator and defense attorney for 15 years, at Connor & Morneau LLP and also at Hellman, Shearn & Arienti. As part of her work, she represented death row inmates in Florida.

On January 2, 2019, Harrington took the oath of office at the Berkshire Museum. While in office she created a domestic violence task force, a juvenile diversion program, and a citizens advisory board. She has also moved away from asking judges to require a cash bail bond for those accused of a crime but who are not dangerous or flight risks.

Pretty sure Andrea too, signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement & Tim went to Havard, that is the qualifier.

My votes – post mortem:

Shugrue: Harrington met her quota for fleecing the peeps for political gain. It’s Shugrue’s turn.
Bowler: Power corrupts. Bowler has been thoroughly corrupted by now. It’s inavoidable. JoePesci corrupt does not mean ‘bad.’ It simply means, you have power that is not granted you, and you use it for your own advantage,. It does not make you a bad sheriff or councilor. Just a corrupt one. That guy who got gored by Hamlet was corrupt, but probably better than the savage viking who took over Denmark. Changing the guard means corrupting new people, and since Barbals is working in a corrupted office, he should be spared being corrupted too.

One corrupt guy is better than two. Elections are largely about manufacturing corrupt people.

Tim already knows what weeds to pull. It’s just a formality to go through them.

Is this a joke? This administration is full of questionable characters that would be better suited for a circus sideshow.

Flat Tyer has been dragging her butt for several years to get an actual decent homeless shelter where these folks could utilize bathrooms. Third winter coming up and she still have not rectified the problem. Homeless are thrown out to the pavement early every morning and can’t return until around 4 p.m.. , no matter what the weather is. Unfortunately, where are the suppose to go? Most cities have public restrooms in their downtown, not the Pits, we have bike lanes. Also wonder if the Mayor is dragging her butt because Mr. Barry Mayor does not want the proposed homeless shelter to open as it is next to his office???

News from the pit, Andrea had a meeting with staff and said she’s going to “negotiate to have us keep our jobs”.
She also thinks she’s somehow going to be kept on as a consultant or something.

Barry “vigilante” Tyer is a CPA. So what?

I will say though, Barry is valuable and to much of a bad a$$ for the citizens of Pittsfield, to fetch coffee. He has the “houseless” or a junkie cutting through Cumby’s parking lot get his coffee for him.

Shout out to Ricky leaving the splash pads running in the cold and when kids are in school. It was great to see some homeless guy at Clapp Park get down to his boxers and use the splash pad as a shower. He did some laundry too.

He what happened to those outdoor dining booths? And those super expensive and unstable “pick up parking only” signs?
