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.

Trump Supporters Are Racists & ‘White Supremacists,’ Says Democrat Senator (Video)

What a silly thing to say!

Not enough people come out and say what needs to be said: Democrats are actively trying to kill the United States of America – period. There’s no two ways around it. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the more obnoxious members of Congress, and possibly just as ignorant as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC. On Monday, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters. And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed on Wednesday that members of White House under President Donald Trump’s administration brainstorm daily on new ways to harm illegal immigrants. Hirono said, “I think that the Trump Administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. That’s what they do and tomorrow they will probably come up with something else.” She added, “These families should not be detained and that’s the bottom line, and so we’re now contemplating thousands and thousands of migrant families being detained, doing irreparable harm to little children. When I was in Dilley, we can’t forget seeing in one of…

NBA Store Refusing to Let People Make Customizable Jerseys That Read ‘FreeHongKong’

‘Defund Police’ is okay, though…

The NBA is heavily dependent on China. The communist nation has as many basketball fans as the United States has people. And if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. But at what cost? From Daily Wire: The National Basketball Association’s online store blocked people from being able to order customizable jerseys that featured “FreeHongKong” as the name on the back of the Jersey. Sports commentator Clay Travis posted a video to Twitter that showed the NBA blocking the jersey when the name entered was “FreeHongKong” but not when the name was “FreeHongKonu” thus showing that it had nothing to do with the number of characters on the jersey.
