You won't believe what scientists say is coming in two years

Don't like your body? Good news! Doctors say that within the next two years you can transplant your head onto a new body. Pat and Stu had the story on radio today, and made sure that Jeffy knew exactly what would happen so he could start saving for the procedure ASAP!

PAT: It just shows you that scientists are not infallible. They don't have all the answers, but they do have one coming very soon. And, Jeffy, this will be of particular interest to you. This is extremely exciting news for you. Within two years, you can finally get that head transplant that you so desperately need.

[laughter]

JEFFY: Wait.

PAT: Can you imagine if you had a different head?

STU: Oh, wow.

PAT: How great it would be for you?

STU: It wouldn't improve the rest of you, but just the head --

PAT: Just the head. Get rid of the head and put a reasonable head on top of the thing that's underneath it. And it's improved quite a bit.

STU: Did you say --

JEFFY: You're the only person that told me that.

PAT: Right. Within two years, my friend. Hang on with this head for two more years. Then you can finally get the head transplant you so desperately need.

STU: Did you just advise Jeffy to put on a reasonable head? Was that the actual advice?

PAT: Yes.

STU: I want to make sure I understand.

PAT: According to Surgeon Sergio Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group in Italy first proposed a serious attempt at human head transplant in 2013. He said, I think we're now at a point when the technical aspects are feasible.

STU: Wow.

PAT: He's outlined his technique. First, both the transplant head and the donor body would need to be cooled in order to slow cell death. Then the neck of both would be cut. And the major blood vessels linked with tubes. Finally the spinal cord would be severed with as clean a cut as possible.

STU: You want to keep that cut pretty clean. As clean as possible, right.

PAT: Joining the spinal cords with tightly packed nerves inside is key. Now, the plan involves flushing the area with polyethylene glycol which I love. I love to be flushed. Whether I need it or not about every six months with polyethylene glycol.

STU: Sometimes you'll get back from a commercial break 30 seconds later. Pat, where were you? I was flushing with polyethylene glycol.

PAT: That will be followed with injections of the same. A chemical that encourages the fat in the cell membranes to mesh. There's so much fat in yours it's meshing --

JEFFY: I'm going through the process. I'm getting ready.

STU: So this is just prep. Okay. And we've been critical this whole time. It explains a lot.

PAT: The blood vessels, muscles, and skin would then be sutured, and the patient would be induced into a coma for several weeks. This is exciting news for you. I'd recommend the coma be longer just in case. You know, maybe months or years in your case. Keep you from moving around and keep you off the air longer.

JEFFY: So for my safety?

PAT: Yeah. Electrodes would meanwhile stimulate the spine with electricity in an attempt to strengthen the new nerve connections. In case of rejection, the patient would be given an antirejection, you know, immunosuppressant. So they can actually -- isn't that amazing? You can sever the spinal cord, put a new head on, reattach everything, and then you could walk and move and talk and all that. Wow.

STU: If you're getting a head transplant. Right?

Are you keeping your brain?

PAT: That's a good question.

STU: Or do you take your -- like I have a head that someone might want and Jeffy has a head that no one would want. They cut our spinal cords. Throw Jeffy's in the trash. Goes into the trash immediately.

JEFFY: I can help somebody.

STU: No. Probably not.

PAT: A dog. Maybe put your head on a dog.

STU: Or a dog could eat the fat off of the cheeks and such. Right?

[laughter]

PAT: I'd love to see your head on a dog.

[laughter]

STU: So they take my head off, and they -- so is it the functioning head is moving to a new body is really what it is. Right?

JEFFY: Right.

STU: You're not changing heads -- I know this is weird to talk about.

PAT: Would you be you at that point?

JEFFY: No. That's what I'm thinking. People used to think with the heart transplants and, oh, Uncle Billy has Little Johnny's heart now. Think of that.

STU: What kind of weird Lifetime movie is that? Uncle Billy has Little Johnny's heart.

JEFFY: But now Uncle Billy has little Johnny's head, oh, my gosh.

STU: I think the issue here, it's not a head transplant, as if you're receiving a new head. You're receiving a new body. It's really more of a body transplant. Right? Because you're taking the working ahead and putting it on another body. Not the other way around. My head is not working. Give me a new head on this body. Right? Because then you would have to transfer the brain too and then you're not you. You're taking my head in this theoretical example is the working head. You chop Jeffy's head off. Throw that in the trash. Or staple it on a dog or whatever. And you put my head on Jeffy's body, and then I am -- it's still me because my brain is still working in theory. I just have bad health measurables because I have Jeffy's body. Right?

That's the end of it.

JEFFY: Yeah, I guess. It's creepy.

PAT: Either way, it's creepy. I think you're right. It has to be that way, otherwise it's not you.

STU: Unless you -- like you installed a new head on you from someone else and then they also took your brain and transplanted it into that brain. Like, maybe if you had a skull fracture that was so bad, your head -- you're just going to seep out during lunch. Your brain would seep out under the plate. You don't want that to happen. Take the brain out. Put a new head on. Pop the brain back in like it's a new engine. Then put the top on. The hair hood kind of gets popped on the top there. And then everything is okay. But I think that's a little bit too complicated.

JEFFY: That's a lot of connections.

STU: Thank you, Jeffy. That's a lot of connections.

JEFFY: That's a lot of connections.

STU: It is. It would be amazing to see, if my brain got on to somebody else's body, my brain would be able to theoretically control the foot of that new body?

PAT: Yes, in theory.

STU: I mean, that is really freaking weird.

PAT: They don't say if they've already performed this on animals. I would think they would have to. If this is two years out from doing this on humans, you would have had to successfully done this on something. Right?

STU: You would think so.

PAT: Because it wouldn't make any sense to make this proclamation if you aren't certain you could make it happen. That's weird. I don't know how that works out soul-wise. Does your soul transfer with your -- with your head?

STU: I think it does.

PAT: Does it?

STU: That's a spiritual thing.

JEFFY: The heart thing is not really the heart.

PAT: You're kind of messing with things that shouldn't be messed with at that point.

STU: Oh, boy. You'll stay alive hopefully in theory. I think it's a spiritual thing. Right?

It has nothing to do with your actual body. It's a spiritual thing.

PAT: So your spirit transfers with your head? Your spirit --

STU: I think it's there --

PAT: Is it all through your body? Because I think it is.

STU: It's with your consciousness.

JEFFY: Perhaps when they're cutting your head off, your spirit says, you know, maybe I'll go with the head.

PAT: Here's what we do, we try it on you right now, and we'll see.

STU: Yeah, let's give it a whirl. Get the saw out.

Are your kids doing well in school? They might not be doing as well as you think.

A recent study found that the majority of parents in the US think their children are doing better in school than they actually are, and we largely have COVID to thank for that.

Due to the disastrous educational and social policies implemented during the COVID pandemic, millions of kids across the country are lagging and are struggling to catch up. They are further impeded by technology addiction, mental illness, and the school system, which is trying to mask just how bad things are. However, due to continued COVID-era policies like grade inflation, your kid's report card may not reflect the fallen educational standards since 2020.

Here are five facts that show the real state of America's youngest citizens. It's time to demand that schools abandon the harmful COVID-era policies that are failing to set our children up for success.

Gen Alpha is struggling to read

Literacy is the foundation of education. Being able to read and write is paramount to learning, so when a young student struggles to gain literacy, it severely impacts the rest of their education. According to a 2021 report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP):

In 2019, some 35 percent of 4th-grade students and 34 percent of 8th-grade students performed at or above NAEP Proficient.

This means that 65 percent of 4th-graders and 66 percent of 8th-graders performed below NAEP proficient. As to be expected, the effects of this lack of literacy are still being felt. A 2024 report called the "Education Recovery Scorecard" created by Harvard and Stanford researchers found that in 17 states, students are more than a third of a grade level behind pre-pandemic levels. Moreover, in 14 states, students are more than a third of a grade level behind in reading specifically.

Grade inflation

If you thought the U.S. dollar was the only thing suffering from inflation, you would unfortunately be mistaken. Grades are also being inflated, caused by more lenient grading practices that began during the pandemic and have yet to return to normal. While students undoubtedly love this practice at the momentafter all, who doesn't like an easy A?in the long run, it only makes their lives more difficult.

This practice has seen attendance and test scores drop while GPAs rise, making it more difficult for colleges to decide which students to accept, as more and more students have 4.0s. Students are also less prepared for the increased workload and stricter standards they will face when they start college. Overall, there has been a decline in preparedness among students, which will inevitably cause issues later in life.

Failure is no longer an option (literally)

To mask just how ill-prepared students have become, some universities have decided to double down on their grading system. Some schools, like Oregon University, have decided that they will no longer give students failing grades. Instead, if a student fails a class, they will simply receive no grade, thus keeping their academic record blemish-freebecause heaven forbid a student should face the consequences of their own actions.

These universities are doing a real disservice to an entire generation of students. To cover up their failures, they are waving students through their programs, failing to prepare them for the world they will face.

Addiction to tech

Tech addiction has been a concern for parents since before the pandemic, but unsurprisingly, the lockdowns only made it worse. A 2023 study showed that internet addiction in adolescents nearly doubled during the lockdowns when compared to pre-pandemic numbers. This doesn't come as a surprise. Forcing kids to stay inside for months with the internet as their sole connection to the outside world is the perfect recipe for addiction to tech.

Mental illness

The mental health crisis has been growing across the world for decades now, but it took a turn for the worse during the pandemic. Both a study from Iceland and Australia recorded a decline in the mental health of their youth during the pandemic, and a study out of San Francisco measured physical changes to the brains of children that resembled the brains of people who suffered childhood trauma.

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

Infrared ear thermometer

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

Grooved pavement

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Bloomberg / Contributor | Getty Images

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.
