[7/11/17 MICHAEL SNYDER] Did you know that many members of Congress spend three or four hours a day “dialing for dollars” in cramped call centers that both parties have set up in Washington? I promised that I would keep all of you updated on what I am learning as I run for Congress, and what I learned the other day just about had me losing my lunch. I always imagined members of Congress spending long hours in their offices working on legislation and other important matters, but the truth is that most members of Congress are little more than glorified telemarketers at this point. Winning the next election is everything for most of these Congress critters, and so they spend far more time making cold calls to potential donors than doing anything else.
Have you ever had a politician call you up in the middle of the day begging for money? It is an absolutely disgraceful thing to do, but the truth is that money is the number one factor in determining election outcomes, and so our professional politicians have an endless appetite for it.
Every two years, more than a billion dollars is spent on congressional elections, and those that are masters at raising money just keep winning over and over again. Something desperately needs to be done to fix our fundamentally flawed system, but neither party seems to have any desire to take the money out of politics.
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about the fact that the U.S. House of Representatives will only be in session for 147 days this year. But even on those days, members of Congress are not exactly spending much time doing what they were elected to do.
During an interview with 60 Minutes, U.S. Representative Rick Nolan told Norah O’Donnell that members of Congress are expected to spend about 30 hours a week “dialing for dollars” in their respective call centers…
A strange spectacle—and possible obstruction of justice— involving former Democratic National Committee Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been kept under wraps by Congress, flying under the radar until now. A messy, tangled web of suspicious connections and incriminating allegations, the scandal has led White House aides to suspect whether a top member of Congress is being blackmailed.
Confused? Let’s take a closer look at the scandal major media is keeping quiet about.
To refresh your memory, Wasserman Schultz resigned as the DNC chairwoman in July of 2016 after WikiLeaks published 19, 252 of her emails. The emails revealed how DNC leaders conspired to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders to secure Hillary Clinton’s nomination. Wasserman Schultz was told to resign by President Obama shortly after. Now, Wasserman Schultz finds herself embroiled in another scandal, which she seems to be keeping more tight-lipped about.
These are the EINS of the various Governmental Services Organizations. This shows that every aspect of the criminal UNITED STATES slavery system is its own corporate entity.
Amazingly, we find that the “United States” has incorporated multiple times, that the Whitehouse, House of Representatives, Congress, and Judiciary are all separate CORPORATIONS with their own EINs, and that the Treasury from 1789 is not the same as the current Treasury.

(The IRS DoT is different than the US DoT. These Departments are within a different organizations, and are deceptively named the same. When you file taxes, do you send taxes to the US Treasury or the IRS Treasury? Because the IRS is a foreign corporation only allowed to levy taxes upon non-American National ARTIFICIAL PERSONS according to the Second INCORPORATED CONSTITUTION OF[not “for”] THE UNITED STATES.)
In a brand new book entitled “The Confessions of Congressman X“, one anonymous member of the U.S. House of Representatives confesses that he hardly ever reads the bills that he votes on, that his main job is to get reelected, and that it is “far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification”. This book is being published by Mill City Press, and it is being billed as “a devastating inside look at the dark side of Congress as revealed by one of its own.” I don’t know if you would classify this anonymous member of Congress as “brave” since he does not wish to reveal his identity, but the things that he is admitting confirm suspicions that many of us have had for a very long time. Just check out a few of the most important quotes from his book…
-“Most of my colleagues are dishonest career politicians who revel in the power and special-interest money that’s lavished upon them.”
-“My main job is to keep my job, to get reelected. It takes precedence over everything.”
-“Fundraising is so time consuming I seldom read any bills I vote on. Like many of my colleagues, I don’t know how the legislation will be implemented, or what it’ll cost.”
-“Voters are incredibly ignorant and know little about our form of government and how it works.”
-“It’s far easier than you think to manipulate a nation of naive, self-absorbed sheep who crave instant gratification.”
-“It’s about getting credit now, lookin’ good for the upcoming election.”
-“We spend money we don’t have and blithely mortgage the future with a wink and a nod. Screw the next generation.”
Momentous things are happening in US politics. No, not the slow, miserable upending of the political system by business Oompa Loompa Donald Trump, but magic — magic! — might finally be about to get the recognition it deserves. Earlier this week, Texas congressman Pete Sessions introduced a resolution to recognize magic as a national treasure, arguing that it “has not been properly recognized as a great American art form” or given the “[status] commensurate with its value and importance.”
To fix this, Sessions wants the House of Representatives to declare magic a “rare and valuable art form,” and pledge to support efforts that ensure magic is “preserved, understood, and promulgated.” To this end, the resolution cites a number of magic’s appealing qualities (including its ability to inspire young children), and praises American magicians like Harry Houdini and David Copperfield. Here’s a brief extract to give you a flavor:
