We may never know if we are living in a computer simulation, warns Bill Nye
Scientists and philosophers have long argued the idea, and in recent months, both Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson have suggested the likelihood of such a scenario is higher than you might think.
Now, Bill Nye has weighed in on the debate as well, and due to the complex nature of a simulated reality, he says we may never really know the truth.
Radical Islamists for Hillary
Frankly, I don’t know anyone who believes that every single Muslim in America supports radical Islam. I’m sure they do not. However, a survey done last year did find that 25% of American Muslims believe that the use of violence is legitimate “to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.” While 20% of American Muslims believe that “the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in this country.”
Malik points out that “there’s so much suspicion of Islam here.” Yes, well, when one in five American Muslims support violence in the US to impose Sharia, you can understand why. You can also understand why tens of millions of Americans (including some American Muslims) would not be so keen on importing more Muslims into the US — especially those from terrorist strongholds.
Young Syrians get 100 percent praise at ‘Refugees Got Talent’ contest in Iraq camp
Belting out an emotional song in honour of Kurdish military forces under a full moon, Syrian refugee Mizzgin Rumi’s shyness transformed to confidence as he captivated his audience.

NBC News reports weeping in the Senate gallery over nixed gun bills
The Senate voted down four gun amendments tacked onto a Department of Justice spending bill Monday evening.
The measures – two introduced by Democrats and two by Republicans – were attached in the wake of the Orlando terror attack, which left 49 people dead and many more injured at a gay night club.
Israel planning to build $5 billion artificial island off Gaza with seaport, airport and hotels
Israeli minister of intelligence and transportation Yisrael Katz said the project will alleviate economic hardship in the blockaded coastal strip and reconnect it with the rest of the world.
The plans call for an three square mile artificial island, linked to Gaza by a three-mile bridge. Mr Katz said the island would include a seaport, with potential plans for a future airport, a hotel and smaller port for yachts.
Israel would supervise security checks, but the island would otherwise be run by Palestinians and the international community.

The failure of socialism in Venezuela has left the vast majority of people without enough money to feed themselves, reports the New York Times.

‘Fanatic’ Muslim mob torches 80 Christian homes in Egypt over church rumour
The Muslim mob, which were described as “fanatic” by a terrified witness, began wreaking havoc at a Christian-owned building which was under construction.
The crowd believed it was set to be turned into a Christian church and took umbrage, setting fire to the building and other nearby Christian properties.
They also destroyed the construction materials and injured Christians who attempted to reason with them.
Despots Usually Start Their Reign of Terror With Gun Control
Estimates say that as high as 56 million people have been exterminated by their own government in the 20th century alone because gun control left them defenseless. (Statistics from FreeRepublic.com) Before guns, governments used swords, knives, and other torturous means, so guns are not the problem, evil people are.
Today in America we are being told gun control is an urgent necessity to curb the violence in our country. Cries of action for “the good of the people,” are being heralded by politicians and media alike. The only cries I hear, though, are those of the millions of people slaughtered by their government.
Why Paul Ryan Wants Hillary Clinton To Win The White House
Sources now indicate Paul Ryan wants Hillary Clinton to be America’s next president, and is doing everything in his power to secure that very outcome.
If that allows Hillary to nominate up to three more Supreme Court Justices and thus tilt the balance of power of the Court so it represents far-left, progressive views, so be it.
The forty-six-year-old Paul Ryan doesn’t care because he has already been promised, and wishes to make certain, that he is the GOP’s 2020 nominee for president.
And it’s not just the 2020 election cycle that is currently on the table. Powerful Republican insiders are still hinting at a NEVERTRUMP moment at the upcoming GOP convention – and Paul Ryan is their top choice to emerge as a viable alternative.

What’s it going to take? How many have to die?
You can deny jihad, but you cannot avoid the consequences of denying jihad.
