In 2017, Jones declared his intent to run for the Republican nomination for Congress from Illinois's 3rd congressional district in 2018; he was the only declared candidate of that party. His candidacy was repudiated by the Illinois Republican Party and the Republican National Committee. RNC spokesperson Michael Ahrens stated, "We condemn this candidate and his hateful rhetoric in the strongest possible terms". Jones won the primary unopposed on March 20, 2018 and moved on to face Democratic incumbent Dan Lipinski in the general election. Following his primary victory, Republican party officials encouraged members not to vote for Jones.
The MedX cervical extension machine is similar to the MedX lumbar machine in that it isolates the deep musculature that normally stabilizes the cervical spine. Because the cervical spine must support the weight of the head, weakness in this area often leads to chronic neck pain and headaches especially those headaches that start at the base of the skull and radiate around the front of the head and are often felt behind the eyes. MedX rehabilitation is so effective because it truly isolates and strengthens specific areas of the cervical spine. By training specific movements and not allowing abnormal compensations the patient not only regains needed strength, but also learns to move their spine properly again.
MedX is the highest-quality and most researched fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment in existence. Developed in 1986 by Arthur Jones, founder of Nautilus, MedX is the leader in medical exercise technology. Its rehabilitation method is based on high intensity training and has a proven track record of to helping individuals who have not had success with other forms of treatment.Under the supervision of our MedX Certified trainers, patients safely perform short, single sets of exercises with maximum intensity: isolating and strengthening muscles in the back and neck. PCSM’s facility has recently expanded to include MedX Super Slow consisting of 12 stations for core exercise and entire body rehabilitation. With over 15 years of research, MedX is recognized as the highest standard for treating and reducing chronic back pain including, degenerative joint disease, spinal stenosis, and individuals who are recuperating from back injuries.
MedX™ treats and reduces chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX™ Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. Pressure on the spinal column causes pressure on nerve roots, which in turn, causes pain. MedX™ focuses on increasing strength, decreasing pressure on spine and nerve roots, ultimately decreasing pain. It also reforms inflexible scar tissue into a more normal functional scar. In simple terms:

As a plastic surgeon operating a clinic, I have found that MEDX has been an invaluable and affordable tool in today's practice of medicine. It has allowed my practice to be HIPAA-compliant while at the same time, enhanced the care that I provide to my patients. I can safely access my patients photographs, communicate with other physicians, and securely transfer large documents. Not only does this give me the peace of mind knowing that I am HIPAA-compliant, but also allows me to deliver better care to my patients. MEDX is also designed by physicians, nurses and ancillary healthcare staff, which was a big selling point for my clinic. When you use MEDX you can tell its designed for us.
In the wake of Trump’s “very fine people on both sides” comments after Charlottesville, and with his outward support of Corey Stewart and silence on other extremist candidates, and with what feels like more and more Republican candidates with connections to racist and anti-Semitic ideas and figures emerging by the day, that idea isn’t likely to go away.

Make English the Official Language: America was founded by English speaking people. For most of our history as a nation, if you wanted to be able to advance yourself, as a new legal immigrant, you had to learn how to speak and write in English. Since 1965, with the repeal of the McCarran-Walter Act, (which was an immigration law favoring White, European legal immigrants) the requirement for citizenship to be able to speak and write English was swept aside and now any two-legged vagabond from any Third-world, non-white, or non-Christian country is given preference whether they arrived legally or illegally. Either, learn America’s language, our culture, and respect our laws or get out of our country!

Hanson said he was cheered to learn that. “I don’t care about getting their support or that they tell their voters about my campaign as an alternative, because I’m independent and I want voters to be clear on that,” he told Splinter in an email. “They know that all I genuinely want from them is that they reach the voters they can reach to inform them about Jones and to vote for someone else. I hope they do something and follow through on that.”

Yes. Since we have so many facilities, MEDX allows us to easily communicate with everyone on one secure platform so workflows have improved across the board -- especially for urgent messaging. Some of our providers only work certain days, so it helps because we can send them an urgent message through MEDX rather than a message through the EMR which providers are not always able to access immediately. With MEDX, they can receive these urgent messages instantly and then go to the EMR to enter notes of the urgent situation they just handled -- saving time and additional steps.

The ingenuity behind MedX’s success in helping patients become pain free and regain functionality is its ability to isolate the deep muscles of the spine during strengthening exercises. MedX equipment is designed to accurately test your low back and neck, identifying existing or potential problems. Precise measurements of range of motion, strength and endurance are then compared to established norms. This allows us to accurately assess your spine in a number of different ways and takes into consideration the individual needs of the patient. This leads to fewer flare ups of symptoms and a much easier rehabilitation process.

But in each case, federal judges ignored the wishes of the people and struck down state laws banning same-sex marriages.”

In the upcoming midterm elections, voters in Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District will have the choice of Dan Lipinski, the Democratic incumbent, or Republican candidate Art Jones, a white supremacist Holocaust denier who, by way of self-endorsement, claims he hasn’t been a card-carrying member of any Nazi groups since 1980. If voters find that choice unappealing, there’s also Justin Hanson, a young lawyer who’s mounted a write-in candidacy as an independent based on the premise that nobody should vote for a Nazi.
