The man who received a transplant of a genetically-modified pig heart in a first-of-its-kind surgery passed away Tuesday, only 2 months after he received the new heart.David Bennett, a 57-year-old man diagnosed with terminal heart disease, received the genetically-modified heart in a transplant operation on January 7. The University of Maryland Medical Center released a statement in the wake of Bennett’s death, saying that his condition had begun to deteriorate several days ago, and that he was given palliative care. The university also said he was able to communicate with family in his final hours.

If they perfect it, I’m sure a lot of lives will be extended. Wondering how many human experiments it will take?

His communication with family, "oink, oink, oink!" was difficult to translate. A death is not humorous but we should not be experimenting with swapping parts with animals. Too many people will end up like Joe Biden.

I remember the first human heart transplant in 1967. The patient died 18 days later of pneumonia. Look at how far we've come in 55 years. It won't happen in my lifetime, but this procedure could become common practice in the future.

But I thought farm animals like cows and pigs were bad for the environment? No - enough with these human/animal hybrids - all barbaric research said for with our tax dollars so some researcher can write up a report and get published in some obscure medical magazine. We are all going to die someday from something.

I met Dr. Bailey, (who transplanted “Baby Fae’s heart with that of a baboon), back in ‘78 (the year I met him, not the operation). I remember the ludicrous outrage of the animal rights crowd over the death of the baboon, not caring at all about the poor little baby girl. Dr. Bailey had no choice because there were no suitable human donors.

I may be overstating it, and some will say surely times have been worse, but I think the world is just about at its end. The ruling class is wicked and perverted with all kinds of sexual deviancy. Homosexuality is mild compared to the demented and perverted rejection of two sexes in favor of multiple made up genders. We're a hundred times worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. Evil is good, and good is evil. Queer is normal, and normal is queer. He's all merciful and long-suffering, but I dunno how much God's nostrils can take of this evil. It makes one question if today God can find even five righteous people in order to spare us His wrath.

Hunter Biden in 2021 paid an outstanding $1 million IRS tax bill to evade conviction or a long sentence, the New York Times reported Wednesday.Hunter reportedly paid the massive tax bill by taking out a loan. The tax payment does not protect Hunter from any potential incoming charges.As a grand jury continues the probe into Hunter’s corrupt international business dealings, Hunter’s taxes are just one potential crime among many. Working with his family, including his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, the probe into Hunter may include his business dealings with Ukrainian Energy company Burisma Holdings and a Chinese energy conglomerate.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) teased on Thursday morning that she would be reading a poem written by Bono for the Ukrainian people at Congress’ annual Friends of St. Patrick luncheon that afternoon. It was seemingly out of the blue and the instant reaction on Twitter was simple: “Why?”At the luncheon, she read poetry by the lead singer of U2, Bono — who is an Irishman himself. It compared St. Patrick to Ukrainian President Volodmyr Zelensky.Based on tweets, it seems that “Why?” transformed into more of a “What in the world?” The spectacle was truly bizarre.

RCP White House correspondent Phil Wegmann asked at Thursday's briefing about a New York Times report that seems to confirm the existence of the "laptop from hell," a Macbook that President Biden's son Hunter allegedly never picked up from a Delaware repair shop.The alleged contents of this laptop were at the center of President Trump's first impeachment and U.S. relations with Ukraine in March 2020 and then dismissed as "Russian disinformation" and censored from social media during the final weeks of the 2020 presidential election."I'd point you to the Department of Justice and also to Hunter Biden's representatives," press secretary Jen Psaki said.

Representative Michael Cloud (R-TX) is raising awareness on a growing problem within America: The State’s violation of God-given, natural rights to protect life, liberty, and property.Representative Cloud made a recent appearance on NTD’s Capitol Report and shared some alarming news about the encroachment of the federal government to monitor, track, record, and potentially act upon knowledge of gun sales and purchases. It seems obvious that in the wrong hands, information about gun ownership could quickly turn into a bloody mess. Would guns be outrageously taxed? Confiscated?
