Can New Weapon Turn the Tide in U.S.-China Trade War?


Based upon a leak from a source deep inside the Pentagon, PPPS has obtained a photograph of a new weapon designed to combat hacking and intellectual property theft. Here is that photograph.

Leaked photo of new Pentagon weapon.

President Xi Jinping
The leak of this photograph comes at a delicate time in the trade negotiations with China. Is the leak just an inconvenient coincidence, or could it have been an intentional ploy in President Trump's negotiating strategy?

Will Chinese President Xi Jinping back down and begin to negotiate in good faith?

President Donald Trump

Is President Trump just crazy enough to deploy such a lethal weapon?

Check back for updates on these important questions as PPPS INVESTIGATES.

Border Security Compromise or Tit for Tat?

PPPS (Washington, DC)—As another government shutdown deadline looms on February 15th, both sides in the border security debate are desperately seeking compromise. A select group of Democrat and Republican members of Congress is currently meeting to work out a deal. As part of these negotiations, however, two very interesting, but not particularly helpful, proposals have emerged.

On the one hand, President Trump has put forth a proposal to counter demands by Democrats for the elimination of ICE, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The Democrats claim that ICE is guilty of separating children from their migrant parents while attempting to enforce our immigration laws.

The President has proposed a clever solution by adding the word National to the beginning of the agency name, in order to emphasize its sovereignty in immigration matters over local jurisdictions, and in particular, states and municipalities claiming sanctuary status.

The resulting new acronym, NICE, would present a much less intimidating image to desperate migrant families seeking asylum, violent alien criminals seeking to avoid deportation, and to American voters.

In an equally clever counter proposal, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi has floated legislation that would redefine the mission of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from one of defending our citizens against all threats foreign and domestic to a more holistic mission of inclusiveness.

In light of a call by at least one Democrat for the complete defunding of DHS, Speaker Pelosi's proposal is a model of moderation.

Her legislation, which is quite lengthy (over 4,000 pages), can best be summed up in the proposed new logo for the department.

It is certainly our hope that compromise will become the word-of-the-day in this debate over border security, and that another government shutdown disaster can thus be avoided.

Is Political Rhetoric Over the Top?

PPPS (Littleton)—As the 2018 election fast approaches, we have one question:
Is the political rhetoric a bit over the top?

But, in considering the consequence of a Democrat takeover of our Republic and our personal freedoms, PROBABLY NOT.

PPPS (Washington, DC)—Following his prominent role in the recent hearings on the Brett Kavanaugh appointment, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) announced his full support of the #MeToo Movement by declaring himself a woman.

Energy Issues at Forefront of Colorado Governor Race

PPPS (Littleton)—As a leading press organization headquartered here in Colorado, the Pundit Pete Press Service has a professional obligation to inform voters on issues, both nationally and locally. It is our way of giving back to the community for the First Amendment press privileges granted us in the U.S. Constitution.

With that in mind, this is the first in a series of articles to help explain complex political issues and candidate policy positions in terms understandable to our fellow citizens (low information voters).

Our first topic is Energy Development in Colorado.

On one side of the issue, Democrat Candidate for Governor Jared Polis has taken the following position:
Climate change is real and the consequences are becoming a reality. I’m running on a plan to bring Colorado to 100% renewable energy by 2040, we can’t afford to wait.
Since a 100 %  renewable energy goal would of necessity eliminate the oil and gas industry in Colorado, Republican Candidate for Governor Walker Stapleton has pointed out the following:
Colorado's oil and gas industry contributes over 200,000 jobs and over $30 billion to Colorado's economy.
We asked our staff energy expert, Petroleum Pete, to encapsulate the issue into a simple, understandable summation for Colorado voters. Here is his summary, produced with the help from staff graphic artist, Pixel Pete:

We hope this helps.

NOTE: Look for upcoming installments in our aids to voters on other important issues.

Could There Be a Backlash Against Democrats?

PPPS (Washington, DC)—Some of the leading poling organizations are reporting that, rather than destroying all prospects for a successful Supreme Court appointment during the rest of the Trump term, and initiation of Blue Tsunami for Democrats, the Kavanaugh hearing on sexual assault accusations may be having the opposite effect.

Our own social media director, #PoundSignPete, recently detected this tweet trending on Twitter:

Our highly trained research staff is looking into the high school yearbook and other background information on the person responsible for this tweet.

BREAKING: Anonymous Letter Surfaces About Hillary Clinton

PPPS (Washington, DC)—We are in receipt of a shocking letter involving Hillary Clinton from an
anonymous source who we suspect may be a male, IT professional.

PPPS is unable to release the full letter, or any information which might identify the sender. This brief excerpt, however, hints at a major scandal involving the former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential candidate.

As any good citizen would do, our CEO, Pundit Pete, has turned the letter over to FBI. The FBI responded to us with this brief, partially redacted explanation.
"The FBI does not investigate allegations of an anonymous nature which may involve Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, or other previously investigated individu         als, and does not accept unsolicited documents from anonymous sources who may have previously been granted immunity."
With that response, we believe the case to be closed.


UNRELATED ANONYMOUS LETTER DEPARTMENT CORRESPONDENCE: PPPS has also received an anonymous letter which we believe to be from a different IT professional and involving a member of Congress. A portion of the letter reads as follows:

"Debbie Wasserman Schultz used me, fired me, then secretly kept me on the payroll for months."

BREAKING: Leaks Indicate IG Report Conclusion Pre-Written Almost Two Years Ago

PPPS (Washington, DC)—Several news organizations are reporting that based upon leaks from unnamed government sources, the main conclusion in the Justice Department Inspector General's report on the Hillary Clinton email matter, closely matches, nearly word for word, a document previously written almost two years ago and published by PPPS.

PPPS has obtained a copy of the concluding statement in the IG Report, set to be released later today, and compared it to this conclusion which first appeared on July 7, 2016. The two statements are nearly identical.

T-Shirt Message All the Rage On College Campus'

PPPS (Boulder)—There is a surprising turn in the protest culture happening on college campus' across the nation as a radical t-shirt design is being worn with alarming frequency.

Some sources suspect that College Republicans may be to blame. Others think it may be part of a well-funded attempt by remnants of the Tea Party Movement to indoctrinate the younger generation.

Reports of free T-shirts being distributed by an older white gentleman on street corners near universities have not been confirmed.

NOTE: Any resemblance to a recent design by our own Pixel Pete using a slogan contributed by Citizen Caryn, may be purely coincidental.

Should DEMS Retool Their Message?

PPPS (Littleton)—With the recent reversal in the national generic preference polls showing that the Democrats may be loosing their edge in voter approval, many in the media are asking the question: Should the Democrats retool their message for the 2018 elections?

Some pundits are even suggesting that the Democrats should shift their emphasis from RESISTANCE and all-out, 24/7 Trump hatred, to memes offering practical and proactive solutions to our nation's problems.

In that vein, we asked our graphic artist, Pixel Pete, to come up with some new, more positive messaging to help out our friends on the Left.

Here is his first suggestion.

Also, in light of the recent huge fundraising discrepancy between the GOP and the DNC, we asked Pixel Pete to address this issue as well.

Here is his practical suggestion in the form of a fundraising appeal to American workers, who constitute the bulk of the the Democratic Party base.

Military Parades Are Really Cool

PPPS (Peoyangchang, South Korea)—We understand that there has been a bit of an uproar over President Trump's desire to have a military parade in our nation's capitol.

So we asked our North Korea correspondent, Pyongyang Pete, who has considerable experience observing military parades, to pause from his duties reporting on the North Korean Women's Olympic Hockey Team, and offer some perspective.

FBI Releases Memo - Comey & Clinton Exonerated

PPPS (Washington, DC)—In a surprising twist, an unnamed source at the FBI has released a memo from the Hillary Clinton email investigation which appears to exonerate both former FBI Director James Comey and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing in the "Matter".

The document, dubbed the "The Memo That Explains Everything" was an attachment to the following early morning news release posted on the official FBI web site:

Key Document in Hillary Clinton Email Investigation Matter Attached
FBI Headquarters, Washington, DC, February 2, 2018, 05:30 Hours – At the direction of eseginonongonon, Chief FBI ajdfaofinna-gnnoinso, the Federal Bureau of Investigations makes available the attached document titled The Memo That Explains Everything. This document is responsive to information requests by Members of the U.S. Congress, the Media and Other Interested Parties.
This document was key to the decision by former Director James Comey, in consultation with addfem oonsldfn, sdofsde dooo, and odsoduu ddodoee, to not recommend criminal prosecution in the Hillary Clinton email Matter. The attached document was recently declassified after lengthy review and deliberation by members of the FBI and DOJ Secret Society Oversight Committee.  
With the release of this document, all relevant and responsive material has been provided and the Matter is considered CLOSED.
Attachment: Memo
For More information or clarification, Contact:
Adfdfo odoeono, Assistant Deputy FBI Special Communications Directo
Some members of Extreme Right-Wing News Media (Hannity and others) are cynically speculating that the release of the subject memo is intended as a distraction from the forthcoming release of the "FISA Memo" by the House Intelligence Committee.

PPPS offers no opinion on the Matter. We report the news. We don't interpret it. That is up to our readers.

PPPS Hires Fake News Director


In order to better compete with other major news organizations in the current news market, the Pundit Pete Press Service announced today the creation of a new staff position,  DIRECTOR OF FAKE NEWS.
Phony Pete, Fake News Director

After an exhaustive search and interviews with many, many talented and qualified journalists, PPPS is proud to announce the hiring of Phony Pete as our new Director of Fake News. 

Phony Pete hails from another news organization (which we shall not name) and claims to have been a Fake News Award winning  White House Correspondent, although for this type of position, resume credentials are always considered suspect.

Pete, did however, present numerous, verifiable, news story examples which clearly qualified as fake news - so many, in fact, that we gave up on reading them after the first 200 or so. Most, it turned out, had a common theme, criticism of the current president, a fake news meme that we can certainly get on board with, and a key element in maintaining market share.

Phony Pete, upon hearing of his selection for the Fake News Director position, was quoted as saying,
"I am so thrilled to accept this job with the Pundit Pete Press Service, the premier fake news organization in America. People don't realize the constant pressures involved with pretending to deliver "objective" news content. At PPPS, I will have the freedom to direct staff in genuine fake news reporting on a daily basis. I couldn't be happier."

Note:  Any image resemblance to a certain well-known journalist is purely coincidental and should be considered as "fake news".
