Puzzling Message of the Week — Straight from the DNC

PPPS (Littleton)—As a fair and balanced news service, we are quite reticent to criticize either political party, especially the one that was first to nominate and elect an African-American president.  But there are times when even the most successful of promotional powerhouses, the Democratic Party, produces a  political message that do you say it?...... puzzling.

Tea Party Group Posts Obamacare Message: Pelosi Not Pleased

PPPS (Littleton)—The mysterious Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party has apparently surfaced again, this time with a message for former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi, when shown a picture of the bridge protest, was reported to have remarked, "We are very proud of our accomplishment in passing the Affordable Care Act, and we will fight all efforts by uncaring Republicans to repeal it. We just need to implement more of the law, so the American people can find out what's in it."

On another note: Jefferson County Sheriff's Department deputies were apparently dispatched to the bridge. Look for updates.

Quote of the Week — It's a tie.

PPPS (Littleton)—For the first time, due to the quality of entries this week, we were unable to pick just one Quote of the Week. So we picked two! We've called it a tie.

Fresh from the Tweetosphere we have this tweet from Tweeter Paul Combs (@PAC43):

"Your Wallet: The One Place Democrats Are Willing to Drill."

And from a comment posted below an article at the Washington Examiner by Byron York, regarding President Obama's miraculous conversion to pipeline promotion, and his taking credit for the same, Lagnafrah wrote this:

"I have directed my administration to facilitate the continued southerly flow of the Mississippi River."  — Barack Obama

Green Energy Protest Highlights Overspending

PPPS (Lakewood)—A small group of Tea Party radicals braved stiff winds and abundant sunshine on Saturday, March 10 to express their displeasure with the cost of a government solar energy project. Our undercover correspondent, Progressive Pete was there to cover the story. The protest took place at the Denver Federal Center Solar Park in Lakewood, Colorado.

Although Progressive Pete experienced technical difficulties with his hidden video camera (see below), one of the Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party members, Citizen Pete, was kind enough to send us this photograph, which was apparently altered to include captions. Despite the alterations, it fairly depicts the protesters' message.

Our readers should note that despite the attempt to disguise there logo by placing it in the upper left portion of the photo, this protest is clearly the work of the mysterious Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party, as PPPS previously suspected in our earlier exclusive pre-protest scoop on the protest.

Based upon their protest signs, the Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party, appears to be concerned about the cost of the Solar Panel Project. As protester, Citizen Pete indicated, "These solar panels are just one of the many examples of the waste of federal Stimulus Bill funds on uneconomical  green energy projects. $40 million dollars with a payback of decades is outrageous. But at least this got built. With Solyndra, they just poured the money into the pockets of a few well-connected friends, with nothing but a big fat IOU that will never get repaid."

When asked about the puzzling reference to "Pipeline" in their protest banner, Pete just shook his head and said, "This represents one of the dumbest decisions in recent history. Our President denies an approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would have brought oil from Canada to reduce our dependence on less-stable, and sometimes hostile, foreign governments, would have created thousands of jobs, and would have lowered the price of gasoline. And all of it would have been paid with private funds. Oh, and then our two Senators, Udall and Bennett just voted to confirm that stupid decision. Now come on, how dumb is that."

Clearly, Citizen Pete, feels pretty strongly about the decision.

On another note, two competing news organizations, local TV stations CBS 4News and Fox31 News, must have had similar technical difficulties, most likely due to the wind. Crews from both stations showed up, filmed the protest and interviewed Citizen Pete, spokesman for the Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party, but neither aired a report.

It's hard to imagine that a story of this magnitude with national significance would not air locally or nationally. But, as with many important stories, the Pundit Pete Press Service was the only major news organization to bring you the "Stories we'd like to see", even if we have to overcome technical challenges.

Thanks to the diligent efforts of our technical staff, we were able to recover a small portion of the video from Progressive Pete's hidden camera. The strong winds obliterated most of the audio, but a short conversation among the protesters can be heard in the background. We leave it our readers (viewers) to interpret their radical conversation.


Progressive Pete continues his undercover investigations of the radical Tea Party Movement. More stories to follow.

Rumor of Green Energy Project Protest in Colorado

PPPS (Lakewood)—Our undercover correspondent, Progressive Pete, has intercepted a disturbing Tea Party group post with subtle hints of a plan to protest a green energy project located in this quiet suburb west of Denver on Saturday.

The target of the protest appears to be the celebrated Denver Federal Center Solar Panel Park, which was built at a low cost of only $40 million in Stimulus funds and will pay for itself in as little as 30–50 years, well within the industry standard of 2–3 times the useful life of a solar panel, and only 10–20 times the life of a government-backed solar panel company.

The puzzling message the group is purported to be posting?


The protest message may include an obscure reference to the recent denial by President Obama of a permit for the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and yesterday's Senate vote to cut off the privately funded, job-creating, gas-price-lowering project.

It remains to be seen whether this protest will have any effect on the national energy policy conversation.

Of note: this rumored protest is remarkably similar to a protest three weeks ago. PPPS staff are vigorously pursuing the story of a potential link to the illusive Bridge to Nowhere Tea Party.

Patriotic Song Going Viral
