Who’s winning the China vs. USA economic competition? China is. Here’s why.

China owns nearly one-third of US debt.  Owning US treasury notes helps China’s economy grow by keeping its currency, the yuan, weaker than the dollar.

This practice keeps Chinese exports cheaper than US products, which is an ideal situation for China, since the top priority for China is creating jobs for its 1.4 billion people.

Why does China want the yuan to be weaker than the dollar?  A weaker currency makes China more attractive to traders in global markets.  This is part of the Chinese economic strategy, because it keeps Chinese export prices competitive.  The nation does this by holding the yuan at a fixed rate compared to a currency “basket” in which most currencies are pegged to the US dollar.  This is nothing less than deliberate currency manipulation.

China’s position as one of America’s main lenders also gives the country huge leverage.  If China called in all of its debt at once, demand for the dollar would plummet.  This would severely disrupt international markets along with the entire American economy.

China’s debt-holder strategy is working wonderfully for China’s benefit.  This low-cost competitive approach has enabled the Chinese economy to grow 10% annually for the past three decades.

Is there a risk in allowing China to be such an important “banker” to the USA?  Of course there is a risk, and it could easily be a huge risk.  But at this point the USA has no way to reduce that risk. None.

Turns out it wasn’t Russia who was trying to control the election last year, it was SOCIAL MEDIA!

Censorship by social media

 

Since Donald Trump won the presidential election, liberals have been howling at the moon, or as they plan to do on November 8, 2017, “screaming helplessly at the sky,” consistently accusing social media giants of allowing “fake news” to spread, then screeching about “Russian ads” on social media. But in congressional testimony, we see proof of what many conservatives and Wikileaks accused Twitter and Facebook of during the election cycle: Censoring news and deliberately hiding news not favorable to Hillary Clinton.  Turns out any activity by Russia was so tiny it would not have made even a small ripple in the election pond.

Twitter’s general counsel Sean Edgett testified before U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary’s Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism on October 31.  The committee’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election found that merely four percent of tweets using the hashtag #PodestaEmails (referring to the Wikileaks publications of emails leaked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta), and only two percent of tweets using the hashtag #DNCLeak (referring to Wikileaks publication of emails leaked from John Podesta) actually came from Russian linked accounts.

What Edgett actually testified shows that while Russia had far less than impressive reach or influence, Twitter itself directly attempted to influence the 2016 election by arbitrarily censoring and hiding information that Twitter users were highly interested in. Why? Because it did not fit Twitter’s agenda and did not favor their candidate of choice.

From his testimony:

We found that slightly under 4% of Tweets containing #PodestaEmails came from accounts with potential links to Russia, and that those Tweets accounted for less than 20% of impressions within the first seven days of posting. Approximately 75% of impressions on the trending topic were views by U.S.-based users. A significant portion of these impressions, however, are attributable to a handful of high-profile accounts, primarily @Wikileaks. At least one heavily-retweeted Tweet came from another potentially Russia-linked account that showed signs of automation.

With respect to #DNCLeak, approximately 23,000 users posted around 140,000 unique Tweets with that hashtag in the relevant period. Of those Tweets, roughly 2% were from potentially Russian-linked accounts. As noted above, our automated systems at the time detected, labeled, and hid just under half (48%) of all the original Tweets with #DNCLeak. Of the total Tweets with the hashtag, 0.84% were hidden and also originated from accounts that met at least one of the criteria for a Russian-linked account. Those Tweets received 0.21% of overall Tweet impressions. We learned that a small number of Tweets from several large accounts were principally responsible for the propagation of this trend. In fact, two of the ten most-viewed Tweets with #DNCLeak were posted by @Wikileaks, an account with millions of followers.

Wikileaks exposed the DNC corruption, showing that the DNC actively worked in favor of the Clinton campaign and actively against the Bernie Sanders campaign to rig the primaries, something which former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile, confirmed yet again on Thursday, November 2, 2017, as she exposed rampant corruption within both the DNC and the Hillary Clinton camapign.

After Wikileaks published those leaked emails, former head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was forced to resign her position as the DNC chair.

As evidence by Edgett’s own claim that 75 percent of the impressions on the #PodestaEmails hashtag were viewed by U.S. based users, and the overwhelmingly high percentage of tweets using the #DNCLeak hashtag that were unrelated to accounts that might or might not have been linked to Russia, interest within the U.S. was high in regards to the Wikileaks revelations, hence two of the top ten most-viewed tweets coming directly from the Wikileaks account.  So we have published information that U.S. citizens using Twitter were extremely interested in, and we’re told Twitter “hid” that information (“censored” it) from nearly half of their users.

Now, using liberals’ own logic here, if seeing a tweet that might have come from a Russian is to be considered “meddling” in an election, then hiding nearly half the tweets about a topic U.S. citizens are extremely interested in must also be considered “meddling.”

From Breitbart:

#DNCLeaks was one of the top trending topics on Twitter on July 22 with over 250,000 tweets reportedly made under the hashtag after the WikiLeaks release of more than 19,000 leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee.

Later on in the day, however, the hashtag reportedly disappeared from the trending bar for some 20 minutes, before reappearing under the less popular hashtag “#DNCleak.”

“The change meant that those investigating the new trending hashtag would not see all of the other posts tagged under the previous version, effectively hiding over 250,000 tweets from the public,” the report noted.

None of this came up in Edgett’s testimony Tuesday, which adds further questions to the already egregious partisan censorship that Twitter seems guilty of.

Edgett said that prior to the election, “we also detected and took action on activity relating to hashtags that have since been reported as manifestations of efforts to interfere with the 2016 election,” even though what he calls “interference” was in the majority of cases a simple effort to “influence” the election by providing damning true information about the Hillary Clinton campaign, which is a normal thing during presidential campaigns.

One more note on Twitter’s meddling and their hypocrisy. It is being reported that not only did Twitter welcome Russian ads, they actively sought and pressed Russia Today to ramp up their election related ad buys by offering them 15 percent of their total shares of elections advertising.

ZeroHedge points out that RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan virtually smacks Twitter and liberals claiming that “ad buys” are somehow an attempt to influence elections by highlighting that “similar campaigns are conducted by the American media in the Russian segment of Twitter.”

This is forcing us to go a step further and come clean that we also spent money on advertising at airports, in taxis, on billboards, on the Internet, on TV and radio. Even CNN ran our commercials,” Simonyan said. “By the way, similar campaigns are conducted by the American media in the Russian segment of Twitter. It’ll be very interesting to find out how much they spend on it, who they target and for what purpose.”

While Twitter is just admitting to censoring and hiding relevant election related information from their users, Facebook had previously admitted to blocking posts with Wikileaks links and after they were busted publicly for doing so back in July 2016, then claimed it was an “accident.”

While we have wondered many times if someone like former White House Chief Strategist and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Steve Bannon was behind what appears to be a coordinated effort to take down the establishment liberal “elite,” we do note via some direct quotes by Bannon reported on by Newsweek that if he wasn’t behind the initial phase, he is most definitely going after Hollywood now, saying Bannon is “declaring a new phase of war on the entertainment industry.”

“Hollywood isn’t a new battlefront for Breitbart, it’s the original battle,” Bannon told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published Thursday. “The fact that it’s blowing itself up isn’t a new stage in the culture war, it’s an inevitable one,” he added. “They’ve ignored half the country’s values for far too long and now these Hollywood elitists’ values are publicly on display, and bankrupt.

“These are the same people who disingenuously seized the moral high ground as they attacked our president based on a standard they do not live by,” said Bannon, who helped found Breitbard and returned as executive chairman after departing the administration. “Americans took their country back not only from the permanent political class but also from these phony culture brokers who have waged war against their way of life for decades. Make no mistake, we didn’t start this war, but how Hollywood responds from here will determine whether or not it survives.”

With Barack Obama recently claiming that Breitbart News managed to “shift the entire media narrative in a different direction — in a powerful direction,” during the 2016 election, it is perhaps appropriate that Breitbart has been at the forefront of taking on Hollywood, the MSM, and the Uranium One story (which they first started beating the drum on with the “Clinton Cash” back in 2016), and now spotlighting social media’s direct attempts, via censorship, to actively influence the 2016 president election.

It stretches the imagination to think that the sexual abuse scandals rocking both Hollywood and the MSM, at the same time that the new information is coming out in regards to the Uranium One story, plus the recent exposure of the Democratic funding for the “Trump dossier,” and now social media giants being shown to have meddled in U.S. elections with even some media outlets saying Facebook, Twitter and Google should all be regulated, is just coincidence.

Really?  Not hardly.  The problem with the liberals is that they are not smart enough to stop digging their hole when it’s already more than deep enough to bury them.

The dam is breaking on the corruption in DC with multiple scandals implicating some major DC players, all apparently surrounding Hillary Clinton

Some huge news is out which ties directly into what may be the biggest scandal yet to hit Hillary and Bill Clinton.

Directly on the heels of three major scandals in the last three weeks alone, including the Uranium One revelations, the funding of the Kremlin disinformation campaign dubbed the “Trump dossier,” and former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile’s recent bombshells on how the Clinton campaign took over the DNC before the primaries and rigged the process of Clinton being “selected” as the Democratic nominee.

In ANP’s most recent article about the three “watergate-level scandals” engulfing Hillary Clinton right now, we highlighted how many people were wondering if the reason everyone seems to be throwing her under the bus was that more was coming, something bigger and worse than what has been revealed over the last few weeks.  We now have the answer to what that may be.

More scandal for Hillary...

Yesterday news from Saudi Arabia dominated headlines when a huge anti-corruption crackdown occurred, netting the ouster  and detainment of dozens of ministers, Princes and former government officials, including Saudi Arabia’s Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, who is known as the “de-facto public face of Saudi finance” and has heavily invested in U.S. corporate giants like Citigroup, Apple, 21st Century Fox and Twitter.

While unrelated as far as we know, it does bear mentioning that Bin Talal also owns the Four Seasons, the four highest floors of Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, where the recent mass shooting occurred.

While many are highlighting how Alwaleed publicly slammed President Trump during the election cycle, what isn’t being discussed at length in the mainstream media is the direct connections between the Podesta Group, Hillary Clinton and the Saudis, which was detailed back in 2016, nor the connections between Prince Alwaweed Bin Talal and Clinton’s former top aide, Huma Abedin.

Breitbart detailed Huma Abedin’s connections back in February 2016:

According to the official website of Prince Alaweed, one of the members of the Supreme Advisory board for his Al-Resalah TV network is “Dr. Abdullah Naseef, President of World Muslim Congress and President of Forum For Social Studies (FFSS).”

As Breitbart News has extensively documented, Al-Resalah TV board member Dr. Naseef is the longtime benefactor of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s family business, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.

Connections between the Podesta Group and the Clinton campaign were revealed by none other than HuffPost back in August 2016:

If I told you that Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose brother John Podesta chairs Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, is a registered foreign agent on the Saudi government’s payroll, you’d probably think I was a Trump-thumping, conspiratorial nutcase. But it’s true.

The lobby firm created by both Tony and John Podesta in 1988 receives $140,000 a month from the Saudi government, a government that beheads nonviolent dissidents, uses torture to extract forced confessions, doesn’t allow women to drive, and bombs schools, hospitals and residential neighborhoods in neighboring Yemen.

The Podesta Group’s March 2016 filing, required under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, shows that Tony Podesta himself oversees the Saudi account. At the same time, Tony Podesta is also a top campaign contributor and bundler for Hillary Clinton. So while one brother runs the campaign, the other brother funds it with earnings that come, in part, from the Saudis.

Continued scandal for Hillary...

It is also noteworthy that the “Saudi regime by itself has donated between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation, with donations coming as late as 2014, as she prepared her presidential run,” as reported by the Intercept in August 2016.

The connections are undeniable and we now know from multiple reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Tony Podesta among others as he goes after “lobbyists who violated lobbying laws, or worked as foreign agents without properly registering it with the Justice Department.”

Tony Podesta recently stepped down from his position with the Podesta Group after becoming a subject in Mueller’s probe. Podesta was quoted as saying he “doesn’t intend to go quietly, or learn how to play golf,” and that he “needs to fight this as an individual, but doesn’t want the firm to fight it.”

Given the aforementioned connections, along with the ongoing investigations into lobbyists, including Tony Podesta, in conjunction with the mass detainment of the ministers, Princes and former Saudi officials, specifically Bin Talal, the Clinton machine as well as the Obama regime may be caught up in a major take down right now.

Zach Hall succinctly concludes his article titled “Saudi Royalty Arrests Rock Clinton-Obama Regime,” with the following rundown of what we may be witnessing right now:

Bin Salaman’s rise may allow Saudi to accelerate a recent plan to reduce the kingdom’s reliance on oil, which includes the partial privatization of state oil company Aramco. Trump has recently pitched for Aramco to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange, a move that would boost the Saudi Arabian economy. This may also be a sign bin Salaman is involved a coordinated effort to confront the corrupt individuals with the Saudi government who participated in pay-to-play schemes with American foundations tied directly to high-level U.S. politicians, including Obama and Clinton.

Given the high profile nature of the Saudi royalty arrests, pressure increases on American law enforcement in Trump’s administration to follow through with indictments and arrests of the Obama-Clinton regime officials involved.

As speculation bubbles around looming indictments of Tony Podesta, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, and others, charges against bin Talal and other Saudi royalty may well be related to money laundering and bribery schemes that implicate the Uranium One parties and transactions within the Obama-Clinton regime already being investigated.

Is it just a coincidence that President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is a senior advisor, along with deputy national security adviser Dina Powell and Jason Greenblatt, special representative for international negotiations, traveled to Saudi Arabia last week in a previously unnounced trip?

With the Podesta connection to the Mueller probe, it would be remiss of us to not address the now-viral rumor and try to separate fact from the rumors that are swirling around. We continue to see chatter that Tony Podesta has been arrested…… that is unconfirmed and right now appears to be just a rumor that stemmed from some Internet forums, conflating the fact that there are two sealed indictments listed by the DC U.S. District Court, from November 2 – November 4, 2017, and an arrest report that no one seems to be able to access naming Tony Podesta, first because it requires payment and a “free trial,” and second some of those that have attempted are claiming they are getting a “access limited for security reasons” message.

More Clinton scandal surfacing...
There are two sealed indictments. It is unknown who the defendants (because they are sealed!) are or whether or not they have anything to do with Mueller’s probe. They could be, or they could be completely unrelated.

The second rumor floating around right now is that Huma Abedin may be indicted. This one was first mentioned by former Project Veritas employee Laura Loomer who has been investigating the Vegas shooting of late, when she tweeted on Saturday “I’m hearing #Weiner’s Muslim Brotherhood wife @HumaAbedin may be indicted on Monday as well.”

Since we are trying to separate rumor from fact in regards to the other recent scandal engulfing Hillary Clinton regarding the information revealed by former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile, the Intercept does a very good job debunking four patently false claims made by the MSM in the last week alone, including Viral Falsehood #1: The Clinton/DNC agreement cited by Brazile only applied to the general election, not the primary; Viral Falsehood #2: Bernie Sanders signed the same agreement with the DNC that Clinton did; Viral Falsehood #3: Brazile stupidly thought she could unilaterally remove Clinton as the nominee, and; Viral Falsehood #4: Evidence has emerged proving that the content of WikiLeaks documents and emails was doctored.

The dam is breaking on the corruption in DC with multiple scandals implicating some major DC players, all seemingly surrounding Hillary Clinton. The coincidence in timing with others in the media and Democratic politicians like Brazile and Senator Elizabeth Warren tossing Clinton under the bus — and Mueller’s ever-expanding probes which seem to be uncovering ‘collusion’ unrelated to President Trump at all — cannot be ignored.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  If ANYONE in or out of the government is interested in finding glaring corruption and scandal and wrong-doing that should be sufficient to indict one or more perpetrators, why don’t we focus on Hillary and Obama for a while and see what turns up? They can’t seem to take even a step without another pile of you-know-what showing up in the news somewhere!

Mueller’s continued war on America…

Mueller's continued war on America

 

Robert Mueller is waging war on Donald Trump and the American people.

The special counsel took his Russia probe to the next level by indicting Trump aides and signaling he wants them to help him incriminate the President.

But Donald Trump has one ace up his sleeve that could shut Mueller down for good.

Even after the indictments of former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates, Mueller has yet to produce ANY evidence of collusion with Russia.

It is more than obvious Mueller’s probe is a fishing expedition designed to concoct any reason the swamp can find to impeach Trump and remove him from office.

But there is a way Trump can end this farce.

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, former Reagan administration officials David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey say that Trump could shut down the Mueller investigation by issuing a blanket pardon to anyone involved in the investigation.

They write:

“Mr. Trump can end this madness by immediately issuing a blanket presidential pardon to anyone involved in supposed collusion with Russia or Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign, to anyone involved with Russian acquisition of an American uranium company during the Obama administration, and to anyone for any offense that has been investigated by Mr. Mueller’s office. Political weaponization of criminal law should give way to a politically accountable democratic process. Nefarious Russian activities, including possible interference in U.S. elections, can and should be investigated by Congress.

Partisan bitterness will not evaporate if lawmakers take up the investigation. But at least those conducting the inquiry will be legitimate and politically accountable. And the question of whether Russia intervened in the 2016 election, and of whether it made efforts to influence U.S. policy makers in previous administrations, is first and foremost one of policy and national security, not criminal law.

The president himself would be covered by the blanket pardon we recommend, but the pardon power does not extend to impeachment. If Congress finds evidence that he was somehow involved in collusion with Russia, the House can determine whether to begin impeachment proceedings. Congress also is better equipped, as part of its oversight role, to determine whether and how the FBI, Justice Department and intelligence agencies might have been involved in the whole affair, including possible misuse of surveillance and mishandling of criminal investigations.”

Rivkin and Casey cite the blanket amnesty given out by President Washington after the Whiskey Rebellion, and Lincoln’s pardon to Confederates who had pledged their loyalty to the Union.

Mueller’s probe has been a partisan political hit job from day one.  Donald Trump would be well within his authority to shut this expensive nonsense down.

A little extra cynicism for today. (Makes about as much sense as anything else you’ll read.)

♦I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn’t that be an even number?

♦ I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

♦ When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body…and men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.

♦ Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?

♦ America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won’t cross the street to vote.

♦ You know that tingly little feeling you get when you know you really like someone? That’s common sense leaving your body.

♦ Did you know that dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish?

♦ My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We’ll see about that.

♦ I think my neighbor is stalking me…she’s been googling my name on her computer. I happened to see it through my telescope last night.

♦ Money talks…but all mine ever says is good-bye.

♦ You’re not fat, you’re just… easier to see.

♦ If you think nobody cares whether you’re alive, try missing a couple of payments.

♦ I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, “Here, fill this out?”

♦ I can’t understand why women accept so easily that JC Penney has an older women’s clothing line named “Sag Harbor.”

♦ My therapist said that my narcissism causes me to misread social situations. I’m pretty sure she was hitting on me.

♦ My 60 year kindergarten reunion is coming up soon and I’m worried about the 210 pounds I’ve gained since then.

♦ Denny’s has a slogan, “If it’s your birthday, the meal is on us.” If you’re in Denny’s and it’s your birthday, your life pretty much sucks!

♦ The pharmacist asked me my birth date again today. I’m pretty sure she’s going to get me something.

♦ The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can be in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient.

♦ I think it’s pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos.

♦ Money can’t buy happiness, but it keeps the kids in touch!

♦ The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married. Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T. Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course Opie, were all single. The only married person was Otis, and he was drunk most of the time.

Now, go have a nice day!

“Stupid is as stupid does,” according to Forrest Gump…

Stupid is as stupid does...

 

Left-wing celebrity and film maker Michael Moore was just one of thousands of liberals who attended an anti-Trump rally last year that was apparently organized by Russians.  Moore was among some 5,000 people who took part in a march in New York City at Trump Tower on Nov. 12 to protest the outcome of the election. At the rally, Moore called then-President-elect Donald Trump an “illegitimate president,” as reported at the time by the New York Daily News.

Trump administration tells the UN “We can do it without you!”

The United States has for decades paid the lions share of the money that the United Nations uses for all of its pet projects…but now the Trump administration is saying we will “do it ourselves without you!”

The United States is the largest donor to the United Nations, contributing about $611 million this year to the regular budget of more than $2.5 billion.

Washington also contributes more than $2 billion annually to peacekeeping, and hundreds of millions more to programs, including the U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Program.

In a speech this week, Mike Pence was happy to announce that the Trump administration was no longer going to rely on the United Nations to be the only ones in charge of giving out funds earmarked to aid persecuted Christians in the Middle East.

Vice President Pence

Vice President Pence at annual event in our nation’s capital held to support persecuted Christians

The Veep made the announcement at the Solidarity Dinner for Christians in the Middle East, which is an annual gala held by the In Defense of Christians in Washington, D.C. Previously, under the Obama administration, funds that were meant for humanitarian efforts were given over to the United Nations, with over $1 billion in funding entrusted.

“My friends, those days are over,” said Pence to the crowd

Now, the funding that once went to the UN will be given to faith-based organizations who will be in charge of distribution.

“Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly.”

Pence said that it was his “privilege to announce” that Trump has ordered the State Department to halt the funds, saying that their “ineffective relief efforts” will be relieved and handed to Americans who will provide support more directly.

It is a good step; now we need to continue to work to remove more money from our support of the United Nations. Trump is heading in that direction.

Earlier this month we wrote about the Trump administration’s decision to remove its membership from the UN’S Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizer UNESCO. The country will be officially withdrawn on December 31st, with Trump citing their “anti-Israel bias.”

In April of this year, we announced that Trump was looking to end American funding of the United Nations Population Fund, which has been linked to the Chinese one-child policy which ends in many women undergoing abortions instead of suffering breaking the law. This aligned with the executive order he signed in January that brought back the “Mexico City Policy,” which governs American money paying for abortions overseas, and which was updated to allow Rex Tillerson to expand that policy to every country that receives American health funding.

Donald Trump’s bid to slash funding for the United Nations would make it “impossible” for it to continue its essential work, a UN spokesman has said.

Good. The United Nations has been worthless, and quite frankly an enemy to the United States and Israel in many ways. It is a hotbed of socialism and communism. They give terrorist nations a seat on the security council…need I say more?

Upon arriving at the United Nations in January, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said she would be looking at what is working and fixing what is not.  “Anything that seems to be obsolete and not necessary, we’re going to do away with,” Haley warned.

As MOST of it is not working and obsolete, let’s get rid of most of it.

 

[From an article published by Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher]

(Here’s an intro, if you are not familiar with Joe: In 2008 my life changed when Barack Obama came into my front yard on a campaign stop. I asked him why he wanted to raise taxes, and he said he wanted to “spread the wealth around.”  Since then, I have gained a national following as “Joe the Plumber” and now travel the country speaking and encouraging other everyday folks to get involved in the political process.  Never in American history has an everyday man been drafted into the limelight and made such a pivotal point in the heat of a presidential race. Candidates immediately began adopting Joe as their guy in the middle class, mentioning “Joe the Plumber” on talk shows, stump speeches and even televised debates.  Joe’s website is JOE FOR AMERICA.com)
