    ILLINOIS's highest-profile GOP primary is the race between Republican Reps. Rodney Davis and Mary Miller in the new 15th District, one of the nation’s six incumbent-versus-incumbent primaries. ... < > 13th District in south-central Illinois to be a D+7 seat ... But the GOP could still hold this seat in a Republican-leaning midterm environment. Republicans look likely to pick either former federal prosecutor Jesse Reising or nonprofit president Regan Deering, as they’ve raised the most money and are on the National Republican Congressional Committee’s list of candidates to watch.
  • Who Rigged the Census? (Fraud Steal House Seats)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | May 20, 2022 | Wall St Journal Editorial Board
    Under-counts may have cost Florida and Texas another House seat. Well, well. Remember how Democrats accused the Trump Administration of trying to rig the 2020 Census? Now a Census Bureau study reveals that Republican-leaning states may have been hurt by mistaken under-counts. On Thursday the bureau published the results of its post-enumeration analysis, which it does after every Census to identify errors in the count. Its study found that 14 states were over- or under-counted by statistically significant margins. Compare that to 2010 when the bureau’s post-hoc analysis found that all the state population counts were more or less accurate....
  • A New Therapy Attacking a Common Virus Shows Huge Promise For Multiple Sclerosis

    A treatment designed to attack a common virus that hides in our bodies could ease the decline caused by multiple sclerosis (MS), according to new trial results. Excitingly, it may even reverse some of the symptoms. A phase 1 clinical trial by the California-based immunotherapy company Atara Biotherapeutics confirms latent Epstein-Barr (EBV) infections are viable targets for treating MS in at least some patients, reinforcing a curious link between the virus and a deadly illness that affects millions around the world. Out of the trial's 24 volunteers, 20 showed signs of either improvement or at least a halt in their...
  • Brett Favre Being Linked To Major Political Scandal In Mississippi, Text Messages Released

    For well over a year, the public has known about Brett Favre receiving $1.1 million in Mississippi welfare funds for apparent no-show appearances, which he has since paid back. Now, a new report from Mississippi Today has more details that tie Favre to potential political corruption in Mississippi. Favre, who played collegiately at Southern Miss, was linked on Monday to a scandal involving former Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant. Mississippi Today reported connections between Favre, a drug company he invested in, public welfare funds, and Bryant. The hall of fame QB reportedly hoped to make a significant amount of money from...
  • Unique Weapon in Immune System Arsenal Could Unlock Multiple Sclerosis Treatment

    01/26/2022 6:13:29 AM PST · by Red Badger · 1 replies ^ | JANUARY 26, 2022 | By AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
    Researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) have identified why certain cells in the body, known as Th17 cells, go rogue and promote the onset of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). In a new study published in Nature Communications, scientists have discovered a previously unknown and nasty side effect of a bacteria-fighting weapon in the immune system’s arsenal called neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs). NETs are responsible for directly enhancing the production of harmful Th17 cells. “This discovery is significant as it provides a novel therapeutic target to disrupt these harmful inflammatory responses,” lead author Dr. Alicia Wilson, from...
  • Scientists identify gut-derived metabolites that play a role in neurodegeneration (Change gut bacteria and diminish MS)

    Medical Xpress / CUNY Advanced Science Research Center ^ | Dec. 20, 2021 | Achilles Ntranos et al
    A research team has found high levels of three toxic metabolites produced by gut bacteria in the cerebrospinal fluid and plasma samples of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. The findings further scientists' understanding of how gut bacteria can impact the course of neurological diseases by producing compounds that are toxic to nerve cells. Previously published evidence has supported the concept that an imbalance in the gut microbiota—the community of organisms that live in the human intestines—may underly a range of neurological disorders. "Our findings suggest that MS patients' gut bacteria produce and release large amounts [of] p-cresol-sulfate, indoxyl-sulfate and N-phenylacetylglutamine into...

    CNN anchor John King revealed that he "was having a lot of trouble functioning" working to cover the 2020 election as he dealt with multiple sclerosis. "I hope nobody noticed it, but election week in America was probably one of my worst weeks last year," King said Wednesday morning. "I was having a lot of trouble functioning." King manned CNN's electoral map for days after Election Day last November, as results slowly came in across the country until President Biden was projected as the winner the following Saturday. He at times provided insight and analysis on the vote totals and...
  • A Common Infection Could Be a Trigger For Multiple Sclerosis, Large Study Finds

    For most of the time since the first description of multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1868, the causes of this disabling disease have remained uncertain. Genes have been identified as important, which is why having other family members with MS is associated with a greater risk of developing the disease. A recent study my colleagues and I conducted found that several types of infection during the teenage years are associated with MS after age 20. Our study didn't investigate whether people who are more likely to have genetic risks for MS were also more likely to have worse infections. This might...

    News that the Supreme Court has accepted a case out of Mississippi involving a limit on abortion later than 15 weeks has the talking heads chattering a mile a minute. Could this case result in a victory for advocates of life? Could babies be protected from abortion before “viability,” a point that has moved earlier in pregnancy but is not (yet) at 15 weeks? Could the Court even go further and reverse Roe v. Wade and later cases that struck down the pro-life laws of all 50 states? Planned Parenthood’s former special affiliate, the Guttmacher Institute, has weighed in on...

    As I reflect on the importance of MS Awareness Month, it has been 16 years now since I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, though, looking back, I had symptoms of the disease for much longer. My journey living with an unpredictable, often frustrating and sometimes debilitating disease can be quite scary, but what started out as a very dark time has been filled with hope and optimism. Some of that is attitude, but lately I’ve been reading that there is even something tangible on the horizon: A possible vaccine.... ... News of a vaccine could be a game-changer. I tried...

    Despite their roots in reality, there is no doubt that these crises -- and the White House and Senate's attempts to tackle them -- would be reported differently if Hillary Clinton were president. It took more than five years, but the corporate media finally have the tools and strategy to successfully defeat President Donald Trump.The corporate media have these, mind you, despite the Democratic Party, whose foibles, stumbles, and misfires over those same five years have only complicated efforts, kicking off with a disastrous 2016 defeat and eventually culminating in a near-invisible and increasingly senile presidential candidate stumbling through a...

    It may be a rivalry on the field, but there’s a commonality to the Egg Bowl off of it. Especially when it comes to its state flag. In the midst of the tumult across the nation, the calls have been growing louder for the state of Mississippi to replace its stars-and-bars-emblazoned flag. The NCAA extended its ban on holding sponsored events in the state until the flag is changed. The SEC also announced that it would no longer hold conference sponsored championships or tournaments in the state. Conference USA joined the SEC Monday in taking the same stance.

    BOONEVILLE - A man is recovering in a Memphis hospital after a Good Samaritan shot him as he assaulted a female. Prentiss County Sheriff Randy Tolar said deputies responded to an altercation in the Wheeler area Tuesday night but were unable to locate the suspect. A resident called 911 around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday and said he was near the Wheeler Head Start following the suspect from the night before. "The caller stayed on the line as best was possible keeping the dispatch posted on the suspect's location and direction of travel as well as his erratic behavior," Tolar said. When...

    The US Senate has voted to give law enforcement agencies access to web browsing data without a warrant, dramatically expanding the government’s surveillance powers in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. A bipartisan amendment that would have prohibited law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, from obtaining the web browsing and internet search histories of Americans without a warrant failed to pass in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday by a single vote. We are talking about the USA Freedom Reauthorization Act of 2020 that would have required authorities to obtain a warrant before gaining access to American internet browsing and...

    Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates, who warned five years ago that the world’s greatest threat was a pandemic, believes that the current coronavirus crisis is “a nightmare scenario,” but said social distancing and a strong national response can keep casualties lower than the numbers projected by President Trump. Trump predicted that the U.S. could see between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths from COVID-19 before the outbreak is under control.

    The report by insurance provider Blue Cross Blue Shield says the diagnosis rate of MS in Central New York is 45 per 10,000 insured people or 1 in every 222. Nationally, that number drops to just 1 in every 416 insured persons. Dr. Corey McGraw with Upstate neurology says research has already shown MS is more common in people living farther away from the equator. The more north you live, the more likely you are to be diagnosed, he said. Location is also what's sparked a deeper interest in a lack of Vitamin D and fighting off flu viruses. “The...
