PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY JUNE 26, 2024) — It’s been called the most important presidential debate since Nixon-Kennedy in 1960, barely edging out when Rob Tuttle smeared the floor with Lew Markham.

THE PLANET doesn’t fully buy the analogy, but there’s enough truth in it to be allowed. This sort of comparison pretends eras are politically and socially comparable. They’re not. Comparing Babe Ruth to Barry Bonds produces little useful information except to reveal prejudice.

Trump-Biden: The Face Plant-a in Atlanta.

On The Weekend Edition, we shall give our view on the 90 minutes to be aired (and hosted) by CNN. ABC also will air the showdown. We shall evaluate based on what we see. THE PLANET has hosted and moderated countless debates, and irrespective of our personal views, we conducted them in the moment, preconceptions aside. That’s what we’ll do Thursday night. If Biden cleans Trump’s Piaget, we shall say so. If Donald sends Joe to the old folks’ home, likewise.

———- ooo ———-

That’s where THE PLANET‘s journalistic training comes into play. We know how to put blinders aside and leave the amber-tinted aviators in the glove compartment. We’re going to judge based on what we witness, reporting and interpreting as we see fit.

Meanwhile, we would like to know YOUR feelings and predictions. It won’t surprise us to see Trump’s people calling it for The Donald, pointing out how CNN has rigged the dice. Biden’s choir will sing hosannas about how great Syracuse Joe is doing.

We do invite free thinking on this, pretending that such a thing is possible.

You see, we appreciate fantasy — in it’s proper place, of course.

With that, fire away.

Thursday night’s Presidential Debate preview:

Joe Biden’s statement: I am proud of my son, Hunter Biden.

Donald Trump’s reply: You are delusional.

Donald Trump’s statement: I am a victim of the Democratic Party’s show trials.

Joe Biden’s reply: I took classified documents home, Hillary Clinton took her government server with classified documents home and then she destroyed the aforementioned server, and there are Congressional Inquiries into my family’s business overseas business dealings in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere. The top Democrats in the Swamp are above the law!

Joe Biden’s statement: I love abortion. Trump hates abortion.

Donald Trump’s reply: I am the ultimate moral hypocrite. I openly cheated on all 3 of my wives. I have 5 children by 3 women. I allegedly paid a porn star and Playboy model to stay silent over my alleged love affairs with them. I am said to be the racist leader of the White Christian Nationalist political movement, but I am really the leader of the Republican Party’s legacy of moral hypocrisy in politics.

Joe Biden’s statement: I am here for the battle for the soul of America.

Donald Trump’s reply: You have a long history of racism in politics. I find your moral high ground stance similar to your Holier than Though Catholic attitude.

Donald Trump’s statement: Last week, for the first time ever, I out raised Joe Biden in campaign fundraising.

Joe Biden’s reply: In 2020, I raised and spent more campaign dollars than any politician in U.S. history.

Donald Trump’s statement: Joe Biden’s federal spending is the highest ever without a major war and/or public health pandemic.

Joe Biden’s reply: Donald Trump added a little less than $8 trillion to the U.S. national debt in his 4 years as U.S. President.

Joe Biden’s statement: I am the leader of the Green New Deal. I want everyone to drive electric cars, install heat pumps and solar panels, and purchase expensive energy products.

Donald Trump’s reply: Joe Biden’s inflation rate averages 5.4 percent, he fist-bumped Saudi Crown Prince MBS on the world stage to import more foreign oil while he turns around and sells oil and gas supplies to China, India and other Asian nations, and he surpassed me as the number one U.S. President for arms sales when we all know that the military industrial complex is the single largest polluter of greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

Joe Biden’s statement: I have been in the Swamp for over 51 years now. I have been running for U.S. President since 1988. I am worth many millions of dollars as a career politician. I am good friends with billionaire John Forbes Kerry. I like to vacation with my super wealthy supporters. When Nancy Pelosi said that she is only worth $115 million a few years ago, I laughed at her being so humble.

Donald Trump’s reply: I declared multiple business bankruptcies, I refused to release my tax returns to the public, I am a real estate mogul and entertainer, and I am a billionaire. I love America because I get to be a rich buffoon.

After reading that post it reminded me of a couple of my really good and flawed quotes.

Several of the right wing pundits including Steve Bannon are encouraging Trump to drop out, because, of course, “it is all rigged against him, unfair CNN, setting him up for ambush, unfair to Trump, biased questions, biased hosts, the whole world is against the poor guy struggling to make America great again.”

I predict Trump drops out at the last minute citing bone spurs. You heard it here first.

Donald Trump will spend more time fixing his hair than preparing for the debate and then give twenty-five reasons afterwards why it was rigged against him when he has made a total ass of himself on national TV.

Trump won’t drop out, but it will be a coordinated effort by Biden and the CNN hosts to take down Trump. Lots of questions about his conviction, also orchestrated by Joe, to get him upset. “How does it feel to be a convicted felon?”, “Do you have any advice for other convicted felons? Trump should say, “Maybe Joe should ask his son those questions”. It will be those types of questions while coddling Biden all the way with his 2 break times for only a 90 minute so-called debate and giving him the questions beforehand. No drug testing so Joe will be pumped up on something. I don’t think this debate will solve anything for the American people although the left wants to put the election on the line from this debate so they will be pulling out all the stops.

Joe Biden has serious old age issues and does show signs of dementia. That the polls are even close at this time is shocking since so many Americans seem to think Joe is capable of another 4 years or are they are just trying to drag him over the finish line to make room for Kamala Harris to become president. Either way, it’s not good because Harris has shown her lack of ability to even be VP and we need a competent president more than ever right now because of all the turmoil in this country and the rest of the world. I think President Trump has an excellent chance of doing well at the debate because he is so much sharper than Biden. Biden has refused to do a drug test before the debate.

Voters should keep in mind the chance of Harris becoming the president because of Biden not making it through his 4 year term again if selected again. I think that possibility will bring in some votes for Trump.

Is this really going to be a debate?

No live audience. Cutting off the microphones, so no true debate will actually happen. EVERYTHING planned, including the terms of the “debate” set up exclusively by China Joe’s team.

China Joe Xiden will have been given the questions and practicing Bathhouse Hussein Obama’s “answers” all weekend long.

**My prediction, if Trump gets Xiden off the rails and he starts babbling gibberish, talking about his uncle getting eaten by cannibals, or how he took a train from Delaware to Africa and held hands with black children when he was growing up, CNN will have “technical difficulties” and cut too commercial immediately.

Pittsfield (Mass.) Mayor Peter Marchetti blocked my political emails.

I should have kissed his dirty behind for serving as mayor so he will collect his 6-figure city public pension plus perks for life when he retires, along with his bank’s 401k pension and his Golden Years Social Security monthly checks.

I should have told him how proud I am of him for publicly asking for a 90-day grace period free from criticisms, along with his statement that he is not a fan of social media commentary. I should have told him that he should be treated like a King whereby FREE SPEECH is met with the harshest of RETRIBUTION.

I should have told him that his use of the City’s FREE CASH to pay pot settlements to Luciforo and the 2 other marijuana companies benefited the taxpayers….because PIGS have WINGS and FLY. I should have told him that he was (NOT) right not to tell Luciforo to GO TO HELL!

I should have told him that his $216 million municipal operating budget that raised city spending by the predictable Pittsfield politics rate of 5 percent per fiscal year was a stroke of genius. I should have told him that him raising the water and sewer rates by 8 percent was the lowest rate hikes in the last couple of years.

I should have told him that him being named in Victoria May’s federal sex discrimination and sexual harassment civil lawsuit versus the Pittsfield Co-op Bank shows that he is the target of an alleged witch hunt. I should have told him that Victoria May’s allegations that Peter Marchetti called her a BITCH could not possibly be true.

I should have told him that he stands for “One Pittsfield”. I should have told him that the 2 Petes city government will unite the city towards progress for Pittsfield’s Level 5 public schools, Pittsfield’s inner-city distressed neighborhoods, Pittsfield’s downtown that is also known as Social Services Alley, Pittsfield’s violent crime rate more than doubling the statewide average since at least 1980’s, and so on.

I should have told him that NO baseball in 2024 was not his fault. I should have told him that he should spend the city’s tax dollars on flowers and PRIDE flags instead.

Jon, don’t feel bad. Don’t take it to heart. The new breed of politicians in Pittsfield now block taxpayers on social media, and also do not return phone calls or emails. They just do as their told by Mayor Pete. Mayor Pete doesn’t like social media because he doesn’t like to read the truth.

I think there’s a chance Donald will bail, because he senses he will be exposing the real Trump without the benefit of a safety net. No chance that Biden will bail.

If all parties show, I think Trump will be unable to control his anger and frustration which will make him look like the petty tyrant that he is. I think Biden will make many flubs, but will hold it together and come off as much more professional than the Donster.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as we shall see when Friday morning rolls around.
