Scientists Make MAJOR Breakthrough in Quest to Clone Mammoth

Will we be eating Wooly Mammoth brisket in the near-future?

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.

Dems and Trump Agree: Release As Much of The Mueller Report as Possible

When Trump and the democrats agree on something, but Mitch McConnell doesn’t, where do we go from here?

It isn’t very often that you’ll find Donald Trump and  a majority of the democratic party on the same page…especially in regard to the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory. For nearly two years the democrats, along with their lapdogs in the “infotainment” industry, had already precluded that Donald Trump was some sort of Russian double agent, handpicked by the Kremlin to rise to the highest office in the land in order to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding. Yes, it was absurd, and yes, we’re glad that Robert Mueller sorted that out for us. Now, the democrats, the American people, and Donald Trump all seem to agree:  Show us the report. The republicans, on the other hand, seem hesitant. House Democrats pressed the Justice Department to provide the full report from special counsel Robert Mueller even as Republicans gleefully called for them to “move on” from the Russia investigation . President Donald Trump accused those responsible for launching Mueller’s probe of “treasonous things against our country” and said they “certainly will be looked into.” Trump said the release of Mueller’s full report “wouldn’t bother me at all,” and Democrats quickly put that statement to the test, demanding that his administration hand over the entire document and not just Sunday’s four-page summary from Attorney General William Barr. The President has said on several occasions that releasing the entire report would be amenable to him, as he maintains his innocence in the matter. Mitch McConnell yesterday struck down an attempt to make the entire report public – a move that has raised some eyebrows among Trump supporters and other conservatives.

Wikipedia Joins Censorship Racket with ‘Paid Protection’ Posts

As if it weren’t enough to have the mainstream media’s infotainment imbecility on our doorstep, Wikipedia is now coming under fire for malfeasance as well.

In society today, there is an embarrassing reality that we must face, in which information is so readily available that entire cottage industries have sprung up around the idea of herding and hoarding such knowledge. Of course, it all began with the mainstream media; an “infotainment” complex of well-paid and ostensibly attractive people telling you what happened today, in their own words.  Where are these exorbitant salaries generated?  During the commercial breaks that these television personalities are tasked with leading you in and out of. So, of course, a grain of salt is necessary when getting any information from these wealthy pundits. In our modern day, however, there is a new realm in which we can find ourselves bamboozled by “facts” and the gatekeepers that control them.  I’m speaking, of course, about the internet – a place whose ideas about free speech certainly don’t line up with the reality on the ground. While most of the discussion about internet censorship and far-left fascism revolve around entities such as Facebook and Google, a new tidbit of information has Wikipedia coming under fire as well. A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients. Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor. Just how sleazy are the adjustments? In one example Feinberg cited, Sussman requested changes to the page of Axios journalist Jonathan Swan regarding a false report he made last September claiming…
