PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

ADD 1 SUNDAY MAY 26 — THE PLANET received this release from the Pittsfield Police Department, which we share with our readers:

On May 25, 2024 at approximately 6:50 PM, the Pittsfield Police Dept., Pittsfield Fire Dept., and County Ambulance responded to the area of 664 West Housatonic St. for a report of a motor vehicle vs dirt bike crash.

A 2022 Honda Ridgeline operated by a Mr. Peter Schettini, ( 53 years of age of Pittsfield, MA), was traveling south bound on Plymouth St, when he collided with a dirt bike that was traveling west bound on West Housatonic St.  The dirt bike was operated by Mr. John Tyska (34 years of age of Pittsfield).  Mr. Tyska was pronounced deceased at the scene as a result of his injuries.  

West Housatonic St was closed to traffic from Osceola St to Cadwell Rd for approximately four hours while the investigation into this collision took place and for the roadway to be cleared.  

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or have any information concerning this incident is asked to contact Ofc Anthony Dayton of the Pittsfield Police Dept. at 413-448-9700 ext 543.

———- ooo ———-

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION MAY 24-6, 2024) — In a sense, Massachusetts voters are playing with the house’s money come November. The Bay State’s 11 electoral votes will go to Syracuse Joe.

We know this not because THE PLANET rivals Nostradamus or Bombo The Great as a soothsayer. It’s because … Democrats.

In case you just illegally arrived via Haiti or Honduras, the Commonwealth has a Democrat governor, a state senate that’s 85% Dems, and a House with 89% D-Rats. In short, Jeeves, we have a totalitarian state, strictly one-party rule where Josef Stalin would feel right at home.

Thus, Biden is up 11-0 in the race. It’s a landslide.

However …

 ———- ooo ———-

… Polling (Bloomberg News-Morning Consult) in seven critical states is sending panic through the DNC. Donald Trump beats Biden above the +/- margin of error in Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina,Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Those states will cast 72 electoral votes. Nevada is tie (6 votes), with Biden holding a slight edge in Michigan (16 votes). Moreover, the deluge of mirage lawsuits Democrat prosecutors have filed against ex-President Trump have backfired on the Jackasses. Trump’s popularity and fundraising have risen in direct proportion to the publicity given to his legal problems.

Pinky-up Democrats cite this as proof that Trump backers are no-brain yahoos. Republicans and the majority of unenrolled see it as a boomerang reaction to the black-shirt tactics of a politically weaponized criminal justice system. No matter. The only thing clear is that Trump’s popularity soars as Biden’s sinks.

Ex-President Trump addresses an impromptu rally in The Bronx Thursday, May 23. Police estimated the crowd at 10,000. (Photo: Stephen Yang, New York Post)

In 2020, Biden’s handlers used COVID as an excuse to shut down the country and as cover for their guy to retreat to his basement. Hidin’ Biden ran a no-campaign campaign. This limited his exposure and contained the damage done by  unscripted, non-photo-op appearances, where he stumbled, bumbled, and wobbled his way to ice cream cones and amnesia. Today, he’s four years worse. He can’t figure out how to get off stage. Literally.

Using COVID as the Trojan horse, Dems rigged the voting (not the votes; they didn’t have to!), permitting nationwide mail-in ballots where there was zero chain-of-evidence in polling places, especially in the swing states. Just another Democrat “coincidence.”

Can you imagine how Joe Biden would fare if he had been subjected to the insane pressures thrown at Trump. Here The Donald is, gagged in court everyday, and in every spare moment, he’s aggressively and tirelessly campaigning for votes. As in Crotona Park in the Bronx Thursday evening.

———- ooo ———-

Trump took over the park beginning at 6 p.m. It was a last-minute, unexpected, impromptu rally. Nevertheless, 10,000 people jammed the park. It was a Trump crown–and crowd–all the way. He was in his home city, a city he helped build. It was an amazing display, the kind of spur-of-the-moment thing that Biden’s handlers would N-E-V-E-R allow.

It’s clear that Democrats, having realized that they wouldn’t have COVID to kick around in 2024, settled on a relentless legal witch hunt against Trump, inventing a slew of phony charges that, in most any fair court, would have been dismissed on the first day. The plan was to tie up Trump in court to keep him from campaigning.

Except, Trump’s legal appearances are campaign stops! When Trump schlepps it into the courtroom, it’s doing him as much good as his electric campaign appearances.

THE PLANET isn’t telling you anything new. America has entered a bizarre political landscape, a reaction to how a once-respected party of The Kapanskis has sold its soul to the Loon Left.

Trump will out.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

Joe Biden has been in the Swamp longer than I have been alive since mid-1975. What are his major accomplishments since early-1973 though the Spring 2024? How can Joe Biden say that he is for the commoners when he raises more campaign dollars than any other politician in U.S. history? How can Joe Biden say that he is proud of his scoundrel son, Hunter Biden, who could bring down the Biden presidency with all of his legal woes?

Donald Trump has amplified the Republican Party of Moral Hypocrisy with his 3 marriages and countless adulterous love affairs, him and his then mistress turned his 2nd of his 3 wives conceiving a child out-of-wedlock, allegedly paying hush money to a porn star sex worker and Playboy Bunny model, getting caught on an open mic saying that he likes to grab women by their genitals, and so on.

I wanted two new candidates for U.S. President in 2024. I should write in “Mickey Mouse” and “Mighty Mouse” for Prez & Veep in 2024. Either way, we lose for another 4 years of failed leadership in the White House.

Besides war or an internal chaos, like civil war, I don’t think it’s possible to rig the election again. They know it and we know it. Not putting it past the democRATS to not try though. I’m not gullible enough to not believe they won’t.

When China Joe Xiden can barely get 40-50 people to attend any of his speeches or rallies, it’s going to tough to justify more than 81,000,000 votes this time.

Especially when Trump gets 10,000 easily to attend his impromptu rally in the Bronx.

Plus, if you scan the crowd, it was very diverse. Not staged or pandered, like Xiden and the D-Rats like to try and pull off as authentic and think they are fooling us.

THE FIB, helped to right the 2020 election and covered up crimes of the Biden Crime Cartel. They had Hunter’s “laptop from hell” for years and sat on the contents and protected him.

““They got to meet Dad. All very good. Talk later,” Hunter Biden said in a December 2013 email to his Rosemont Seneca business partner Devon Archer.
Hunter also said his dad was “in love” with Xi Jinping.
“I think they are in love with each other,” Hunter Biden said in emails, according to Just The News. “They all most kissed on departure.” _

Trump should hold a rally in Massachusetts, I believe he would still pack in the crowds. I know so many in this state who will vote for Trump, but they are the silent voters not being taken into consideration by the Dems. It’s so terrible that Trump helped build New York and its horrible politicians have now turned on him. Americans can turn this sinking ship around if only they see the truth of what is really happening in this country.

The democRATS are in a panic. They know Trump is not a “threat to democracy,” as they claim. He is just a threat to their “one-party, democRAT, ruled system,” like here in MA. Sounds like socialism at the minimum, but a giant step towards communism to me.

Trump is a “threat to democracy.” Trump is a “threat to democracy.” Trump is a “threat to democracy.”

If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it. It’s Nazi propaganda. Hitler and Joseph Goebbels would be PROUD of the democRAT party of today for their propaganda efforts and lawfare against their own citizens and political opponents.

Big lie – Wikipedia

Remember when China Joe Xiden hid in his basement during the scamdemic and promised to “cool the temperature of the country,” and bring back peace and dignity? Yeah, me too.

I guess this is the idea of the democRATS “cooling the temperature of the country” and bringing back “peace and dignity.”

Pittsfield politics in the opinion and news media. The Mayor’s new trash plan is said to be penny-wise, pound-foolish, but that has been the financial management policy of the city for decades.

Former Mayor Linda Tyer Clairmont, who lives in a mansion in Pittsfield’s elitist Gated Community west of Berkshire Community College, along with her litigious neighbor: Pittsfield’s Pot King (of lawsuits) “Luciforo’s” nearby mansion that is not in the vicinity of his 3 story pot growing building on Dalton Avenue that stinks up nearby residential neighborhoods with “Berkshire Roots'” unpleasant marijuana growing odors, is a new corporator at Lee Bank.

Letter: “I believe Pittsfield’s new trash plan is a bad idea”
The Berkshire Eagle, May 24, 2024

To the editor: It looks like the City of Pittsfield will be making another terrible decision.

It’s bad enough what they did to North Street with electric scooters, poor parking and bike lanes. And let’s not forget what they did with Wahconah Park, letting it fall into disrepair.

Now, thanks to their penny-wise, pound-foolish trash proposal, the city is making another bad decision. (“Pittsfield recycling program will save money, officials say. Are residents on board?” Eagle, May 22.)

Slowly but surely, Pittsfield’s leaders are letting down the city and the Berkshire community as a whole.

Comey is shaking in his guile filled galoshes, knowing what a grave threat Trump is to him as well as his communist party. Remember : In 2003, James Comey bragged that he was a communist during an interview with The [far-left] New Yorker, Comey in good communist fashion, is a master at accusing conservatives of the very things he and his party are guilty of.

The reason things are so expensive now is Biden is putting all our $$$ into fighting foreign wars & alliances. It’s not rocket science. Fake lawsuits are backed by Soros just so President Trump won’t be able to campain. If Trump loses the popular vote our state electors have the right and duty to vote as they see fit. If Biden victory means democRATcy then we are better off rejecting democRATcy in favor of Trumps dictatorial rule. He can’t be any worse than what we have now. Only then will the democRATs see the truth of what is really happening in this country.

Hello blogger Dan Valenti,

The Massachusetts State House of Representatives unanimously passed a Veterans bill this past week.

https://franklinobserver.town.news/g/franklin-town-ma/n/253649/legislature-passes-vet-bill-time-memorial-day

But it still does NOT make homeless Veterans eligible for immediate housing under the state’s Right to Shelter law.

Why?

A homeless Veteran returns home to their Massachusetts community, but they do NOT have a right to immediate housing! State lawmakers are taking away the dignity of homeless Veterans by putting them at risk of homelessness.

What does Pittsfield State Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier have to say about this?

What does Lenox State Representative Smitty Pignatelli have to say about this?

What does North Adams State Representative (and former Mayor) John Barrett III have to say about this?

Do Tricia, Smitty and John believe that homeless Veterans should be at risk of homelessness in their Berkshire-based districts’ cities and/or towns?

I read that a lot of the state lawmakers in Boston are landlords, who neglect the rising rent and mortgages in Massachusetts. Imagine a homeless Veteran returning to their hometown in Massachusetts, but they are ineligible for immediate housing under the state’ Right to Shelter law. A homeless Veteran put one’s life on the line for our country, but the state law leaves the Veteran at-risk of homelessness….because state lawmakers recently voted the measure down, including Berkshire-based State Representatives Smitty Pignatelli, Tricia Farley Bouvier, and John Barrett III.

Why aren’t The Berkshire Eagle and/or blogger Dan Valenti writing about this matter? It should be “a no brainer”: Pass a state law in Massachusetts to make Veterans eligible for immediate housing under the state’s Right to Shelter law!

FROM MASS.LIVE MAY 23,2024

In the U.S. in 2012, a household income of $35,364 qualified you as a member of the middle class. But by 2022, the household needed to make $50,099 to be considered middle class.

Those numbers are even higher in Massachusetts, the study suggested.

In 2012, those in the commonwealth were considered middle class if they made between $44,439 to $133,316. In 2022, Massachusetts residents needed to make between $64,337 to $193,010 to be considered middle class.

The 10-year change is 44.78%, one of the top 10 biggest changes in the U.S., according to the study.

Dan, I very much enjoyed watching your recommended program, Agganis: The golden Greek. Excellence to the End I found it interesting I had met 4 personalities mentioned in the book. They are Harry, Mike Dukakis, Boston University’s head football coach Buff Donelli, and chief Red Sox scout Neil Mahoney.

The early 1950’s are long time ago and many today never heard of Harry Agganis. He’s from Lynn, Mass. and was one of America’s great athletes. As a college junior he was number one draft choice of the Cleveland Browns. Yes, #1. He was a quarterback. The following year he chose baseball and signed with the Boston Red Sox. One year in Triple A and he became regular first baseman for the Boston Red Sox. Two months into the season he was hitting 319 and it appeared he was on his way to stardom. He became ill, admitted to a hospital and at the age of 26 died of pneumonia.

I found it interesting this program mentioned there may have been medical incompetence that led to his death. He was treated at a hospital not in Boston proper. Why he never went, and why did treating doctors never send him to Mass. General Hospital is a mystery.
