Scientists Make MAJOR Breakthrough in Quest to Clone Mammoth

American children have long been obsessed with the ancient monsters that once galavanted across some version of our national landscape.

These beasts, whose fossils are found from sea to shining sea in our great nation, captivate us not only with their sheer size, but with their bizarre anatomy and ferocious capabilities.

Of course, the idea of somehow bringing these creatures back to life has long been a part of the pop culture vernacular thanks to films such as Jurassic park.

Unfortunately, dinosaur DNA isn’t quite as easy to work with as Hollywood wrote it, but scientists do feel somewhat optimistic about the possibility of bringing back another long-extinct creature:  The Woolly Mammoth.

This week, those efforts crossed a major threshold.

New findings indicate that the resurrection of mammoths is not a fantasy, a research team including members from Kindai University is saying, after cell nuclei extracted from the 28,000-year-old remains of a woolly mammoth were discovered to retain some function.

When placed in the ova of mice, the nuclei developed to a state just before cellular division, according to a paper published Monday in the British journal Scientific Reports.

The team includes researchers from Japanese and Russian universities. It has been working for about 20 years on a project to use cloning to resurrect mammoths, an animal that has long been extinct.

Luckily for scientists, they were able to locate an extremely well-preserved sample.

The cell nuclei used in the team’s recent findings were extracted from musculature and other tissue from Yuka, an about 3.5-meter-long female woolly mammoth excavated nearly intact in 2010 from permafrost in Siberia. When inserted into mouse ova, five out of 43 nuclei were observed to develop to a point just before the nuclei would split in two as a result of cell division.

Of course, there have long been ethical and moral concerns about the resurrection of extinct animals, with many of America’s faithful unenthused about the blurring line between science and divine creation.

Unearthed Clip Shows Joe Biden Praising Group That Displays Confederate Flag [Watch]

What say you now, Joe?

The past always comes back to bite Democrats right in the back side. Whether talking about slavery or racism or their rhetoric on impeaching Clinton vs. impeaching Trump, it’s quite comical how an entire party can change views at the drop of a hat. 2019 Joe Biden might have a few words to say to 1993 Joe Biden about the Confederate Flag, something Democrats claim to hate. From Daily Wire: Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised a pro-confederacy group “who continue to display the Confederate flag” as “fine people” in newly resurfaced video highlighted by the Trump campaign. The video is significant in large part due to the number of times that Biden has engaged in smearing President Donald Trump with the patently false claim that the president said white supremacists and neo-Nazis were “very fine people” in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy in 2017. WATCH: Joe Biden called the United Daughters Of The Confederacy “an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag.” https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1203753557444444160?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203753557444444160&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbreaking-biden-praises-group-who-display-the-confederate-flag-as-fine-people-in-resurfaced-video Back in 2014, when Biden was still vice president, he spoke at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. He said illegal aliens are American citizens. No joke. Biden: “You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens. These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAH3hc-_arM#action=share Would Democrats be all in favor of illegal immigration if the majority of illegals voted Republican? NOPE! Biden didn’t vote in favor of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in 2011. What’s funny is 44 cared so little about Joe’s opinion that he went forward with the plan anyway. Listen to…

Fox News Host Banned From Twitter for Sharing Saudi Killer’s Anti-American Manifesto

But they let other organizations share New Zealand & El Paso shooter’s manifestos…

Twitter has a funny way of justifying what can and cannot be censored – or outright banned – from their platform. For example, a conservative can say something most people wouldn’t look twice at and find themselves in trouble, while a liberal can call for people to be killed and Twitter will look the other way. How does that make sense? Could it be that the social media outlet leans left? It’s probably a decent bet! Check out what just happened to Fox News host, Pete Hegseth, a big supporter of President Trump – from Daily Mail: Fox and Friends host Pete Hegseth said he was banned from Twitter Saturday after he shared an anti-American manifesto said to have been written by Pensacola shooter Mohammed Alshamrani. The TV journalist, 39, posted screenshots Sunday which showed his tweet, calling the actions of the gunman ‘Islamist terror’, was ‘no longer available’. He followed up with a picture of his appeal regarding the decision.
