WikiLeaks suggested in several tweets Thursday that the 2016 election for president of the United States is rigged.Imagine that.
In response to criticism from blogger Dan Gillmor that WikiLeaks recent leaks have outed it as picking a side and playing partisan politics in the presidential election, WikiLeaks tweeted back, “You are not a fan of publishing true information about corrupt ruling power factions who will take power on Jan 20?”
WikiLeaks then hinted that the outcome of the election was obvious from the outset: “What election? It has been clear from the beginning who is going to win. This is, in effect, a power consolidation exercise.”

Chicago Public Schools has lost nearly 11,000 students since last fall, dropping to 381,349 students.It appears Chicago isn't growing. No word yet on this story from Barack Obama.
Most of the losses came from district elementary schools and CPS’ preschool program, but charter schools lost enrollment, too.
CNS News reports:
The Environmental Protection Agency is spending over $10 million in taxpayer dollars for a five-year program to train teachers to “deliver high-quality environmental education in formal and non-formal education settings.”The EPA moves into the Department of Education/Propaganda realm.
“Environmental educators help learners of all ages understand and value the ecosystems around them,” said U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “The teacher training program gives educators access to the best classroom and out-of-classroom materials and professional development opportunities, focused on using the environment as a platform for learning science, technology, engineering and math skills to improve decision-making.”
The program called “ee360” will begin next year and is the result of a cooperative agreement between the EPA and the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE), the agency’s teacher training program.
A 48-year-old Murphysboro man has been charged with intimidation and resisting a peace officer in connection with an alleged threat on Monday to burn items inside the Republican Committee Office in Murphysboro.No word on when Barack Obama will blame Donald Trump for this one.
Robin Leon Little was charged with one count of intimidation, a Class 3 felony; one count of resisting a peace officer, a Class A misdemeanor; and one count of disorderly conduct, a Class C misdemeanor, according to a news release from Jackson County State's Attorney Michael C. Carr. Little was taken into custody on Monday.
According to court documents filed by Carr, Little communicated to Teresa Easton that he would burn items inside the Republican Committee Office, at 1332 Walnut St.
When Sgt. Timothy Legere tried to arrest Little, he ran from the officer and "then struggled and fought with the officer," according to the complaint.

The Clinton campaign coordinated with Nevada Sen. Harry Reid to use The New York Times to smear the State Department’s deputy inspector general as State’s internal watchdog was investigating Clinton aide Huma Abedin, The Daily Caller can report.Imagine that.
The scheme is revealed in a series of emails hacked from the Gmail account of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.
The most damning message is a Nov. 13, 2015 email that Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon sent to Phil Schiliro, a former White House official and longtime Democratic operative who has helped the Clinton campaign in various capacities.
Watch Julian Assange to CNN you should be ashamed, and Reporter actually should be ashamed, as well.

Donald Trump is no legal scholar, but at Wednesday’s presidential debate he showed a superior grasp of the U.S. Constitution than did Hillary Clinton. Amid the overwrought liberal fainting about Mr. Trump’s bluster over accepting the election result (see below), Mrs. Clinton revealed a view of the Supreme Court that is far more threatening to American liberty.Imagine that.
Start with her answer to moderator Chris Wallace’s question about the role of the courts. “The Supreme Court should represent all of us. That’s how I see the Court,” she said. “And the kind of people that I would be looking to nominate to the court would be in the great tradition of standing up to the powerful, standing up on our behalf of our rights as Americans.”
Where to begin with that one? The Supreme Court doesn’t—or shouldn’t—“represent” anyone. In the U.S. system that’s the job of the elected branches. The courts are appointed, not elected, so they can be nonpartisan adjudicators of competing legal claims.
Mrs. Clinton is suggesting that the Court should be a super-legislature that vindicates the will of what she calls “the American people,” which apparently excludes “the powerful.” But last we checked, the Constitution protects everyone, even the powerful. The law is supposed to protect individual rights, not an abstraction called “the people.”

It’s not uncommon to hear that the growth in student loan debt is like a time bomb threatening to blow up the U.S. economy. Now, you can watch it tick.This is what progressives call "investing".
The outstanding balance of the nation’s student loans is growing by an estimated $2,726.27 every second according to the clock above developed for MarketWatch by StartClass, an education data site. As policymakers and pundits debate ways to tackle Americans’ $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, this student-loan debt clock provides a window into the growing risks to the economy as well as to student loan borrowers and their families.
The good news is that the debt is growing at a slightly slower rate than when StartClass first made the calculation for us several months ago. When the clock only included data up until the first quarter of 2015, student debt was rising by $3,055 every second. Now with second quarter 2015 data factored in, the debt is growing by about $328 less per second.
Still, Skyrocketing college costs, cuts to public funding for higher education, stagnant incomes and the growth in the college-going population are largely to blame for the uptick in outstanding student loans over the past decade. Now, about 40 million Americans are carrying some student loans and about 70% of students graduate college with debt.
