Practical Pete's Tools of Politics Quiz

PPPS(Littleton)—In the interest of furthering the understanding and the practice of the art of politics, we commissioned our own PPPS Advice Columnist, Practical Pete, to write a book on the Tools of Politics in America.

Pete's book, soon to be released, will be titled:

TOOLS OF POLITICS 

A practical guide to winning power at all costs 

by Practical Pete

 

As part of his research for the book, Practical Pete developed a  political quiz which was administered to several focus groups consisting of PPPS low-information readers who self-selected by responding to a reader survey. The results of the survey and focus group sessions were used in evaluating the most practical tools of politics to be included in the book. We anticipate that Pete's book and the associated Tools of Politics Quiz may form the basis for instruction in political science at several leading universities, Ivy League schools in particular.

As a kind of teaser, prior to official release of Pete's book, here is a sampling of a few of the Tools of Politics Quiz questions used in Pete's research. See how you do.

Challenging the Media on Impeachment

PPPS (Littleton)—Impeachment seems to be dominating the news cycle of late, and our leader, Pundit Pete, has decided to challenge other journalists with an alternative story line....

Is ISIS Recruiting Again?

PPPS (Idlib, Syria)—The recent deaths of AbÅ« Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the unnamed second in command of the religious organization have sent shock waves throughout the Middle East and within the Jihad Movement.

Although some have praised President Trump's actions which may have caused the deaths of these religious leaders, many Democrats in Congress and certain baseball fans have criticized the President. Some are even suggesting that these deaths will serve as a recruiting tool for ISIS.


We asked our Middle East Correspondent, Palestinian Pete, to look into this issue. And Pete has uncovered evidence that the fears of Democrats may be true. 

Here is an ad he recently found on a religious web site.

Dems Ditch Donkey, Flip to the Bird

PPPS (Washington, DC)—At the end of a week of Impeachment Fever in our nation's capitol, the Democrat Party unveiled a new mascot more representative of current direction of the party. 

New mascot design and excerpt from official party press release.

The new mascot was unveiled late in the day on Friday in a hastily convened press conference led by Acting Speaker of the House, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, accompanied by other members of the party leadership.

The new mascot design, featuring a common loon, was finally adopted after heated debate in the Democrat Party Caucus. Speaker-In-Name-Only Nancy Pelosi, who earlier in the week had expressed opposition to the change, apparently flipped under pressure, and finally gave her approval.


Our sources within the Democrat Caucus indicate that another mascot, the Hyena, was initially considered as representative of the party's tenacity in pursuing impeachment of President Trump, but was ultimately rejected because "hyenas aren't nice."

Professor Pete Explains Climate Crisis

The CNN Climate Science Experts
PPPS (Littleton)—Yesterday, CNN held a seven-hour seminar on the impending Climate Crisis which featured ten noted experts in climate science, who also happen to be Democrat Party candidates for president.

The program was both educational and alarming, as the candidates made a compelling case for immediate action to save our planet. It was difficult to turn away from the TV.

Because of the courageous CNN programming, the Climate Crisis now tops the list of important issues of concern to our low information readers.

We've asked our resident expert, weatherman Precipitation Pete, to weigh in on the Climate Crisis. But Pete, preoccupied with covering the disastrous Hurricane Dorian, instead referred us to a 2017 quote from our esteemed science adviser, Professor Pete.
For the purpose of alarming the public and advancing an unstated agenda, Conspiracy Theory is one scientific discipline wherein the absence of data, or the presence of conflicting data, is used to corroborate the stated hypothesis.
Climate Science is another such discipline.
—Professor Pete, 2017

The New Face of the Democrat Party

PPPS (Washington, DC)—An exchange of tweets over the weekend with President Trump has catapulted four freshman members of Congress into the forefront of the news cycle. Are these "women of color" now the new face of the Democrat Party and leaders of the fight for minority rights?

We asked our graphic artist, Pixel Pete, to encapsulate this new development in a meme easily understood by our low information readers.

Celebrating LBGTQ Month

PPPS (Washington, DC)—As the nation celebrates LBGTQ month this June, our staff wanted to make a suggestion and offer a commentary on the status of LBGTQ "rights" in America.

First a suggestion, to make the movement more inclusive:


And then a comment regarding the necessity of separately delineated "rights" for the LBGTQ community:


And, as a follow up to the preceding comment, our PPPS sports commentator, Player Pete, weighed in with this:


And finally, Citizen Pete, a loyal fan, occasional contributor, and friend of Jack the Cake Maker, sent in this suggestion for an official LBGTQ Month Moto:

Connecting the Dots in DC

PPPS (Littleton)—Our esteemed Editor-In-Chief and CEO, Pundit Pete, has been a keen observer of all things political for many years, and has finally reached a conclusion about the many scandals and hints of scandal circulating around our nation's capitol.

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

PPPS (Washington, DC)—PPPS EXCLUSIVE

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.

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.
