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.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
