Ketamine, a drug generally used for anesthesia, but also for recreational purposes, is now in the spotlight for its promising results in fighting depression. As shown in previous research, ketamine improves depression's symptoms in a few hours, unlike the rest of anti-depressants, which may take weeks, even months to work.
Former President Donald Trump's endorsement hasn't exactly been golden — at least not yet — in 2022 mid-term races.
Senate candidates endorsed Trump are falling behind their GOP rivals in fundraising, according to the latest campaign finance reports. And none of the nine remaining House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump was out-raised by a GOP challenger.
"Former President Donald J. Trump has been doing a lot of endorsing in Republican primaries ahead of the 2022 midterms," the New York Times reported Tuesday night. "His backing is, by far, the most coveted in the party. But a Trump blessing has not necessarily translated to a cash boom for those Senate hopefuls he backs, the records show."
Alabama GOP Congressman Mo Brooks, endorsed by Trump in his Senate campaign, was "badly out-raised for the second consecutive quarter," the Times reports. Brooks brought in just $670,000 from July through September, compared to GOP rival Katie Boyd Britt's $1.5 million.
Meanwhile, Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski outraised her Trump-endorsed GOP challenger, Kelly Tshibaka, by a margin of two-to-one. Trump endorsed Tshibaka after Murkowski voted to convict him for inciting the Capitol insurrection.
In the House, Trump has likewise focused on defeating Republicans who voted to impeach him.
"One such Republican has already retired," the Times reports, referring to Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez. "But none of the other nine House Republicans who voted to impeach Mr. Trump in January were out-raised last quarter by a primary challenger, with Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming setting the pace by raising $1.7 million."
In other Senate races, North Carolina GOP Congressman Ted Budd, endorsed by Trump, was beaten out by former Gov. Pat McCrory in the third quarter. And while Fox News regular Sean Parnell appeared to get a fundraising boost from Trump's endorsement in the Pennsylvania Senate race, GOP opponent Carla Sands gave her campaign $3 million from her personal fortune.
Bannon contempt evidence is 'overwhelming' — and he'll go down if the DOJ takes action: Watergate's John Dean
On CNN Tuesday, former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean said that former Trump adviser Steve Bannon is in serious legal danger after the congressional committee investigating the January 6 attack voted to advance a criminal contempt referral.
"I want to read something that Congressman Adam Schiff, a member of the select committee, just tweeted," said anchor Anderson Cooper. "He wrote, 'Steve Bannon was given every opportunity to comply with the lawful subpoena. He chose, instead, to make specious claims of executive privilege. Tonight, we voted to hold him in criminal contempt. Despite what he and Trump may believe, no one is above the law.' What do you make of that?"
"Well, I think it's very accurate," said Dean. "I'm surprised that Bannon is — is as blatant as he is. He is working with an attorney who certainly knows what's happening and understands it. But yet, they have decided to make a stance that I don't think is going to withstand the test. There are very few arguments that can be made. They're highly technical. And if the Department of Justice — which I think will happen — proceeds to go forward and take this to a grand jury, there will be an indictment forthcoming. And he will be facing misdemeanor charges. He's got — there's an overwhelming case against him."

'You're crazy': CNN reporter tells off doctor to his face after he says vaccines will result in 'genocide'
CNN's Drew Griffin on Tuesday conducted an interview with anti-vaccine Dr. Rashid Buttar in which the doctor claimed that COVID-19 vaccines would result in a "genocide" worse than anything Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler did during World War II.
During the interview, Griffin confronted Buttar for his past comparisons between Hitler and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading expert in infectious diseases.
"You think Dr. Fauci is involved in some kind of plot to kill millions of people?" Griffin asked. "I just want to make sure I understand this."
"Again, Drew, I'm a reasonable person," Buttar replied. "I said it could be this, but I can tell you that Dr. Fauci is not an innocent bystander. He is very well aware of what he is doing."
Later in the interview, Buttar claimed that the majority of deaths from the delta variant of the novel coronavirus were caused by "vaccine injury," despite the fact that the vast majority of deaths came from the unvaccinated.
"I don't want to be part of this mass genocide that I see happening," Buttar told him. "And I think that what's going on right now will be remembered as a worst time in history compared to... World War II."
"I just want to be straight with you," said Griffin. "I think you're crazy."
