… To urge that the CIA–the intelligence community–empower itself to undermine the elected branches of government is insanity! That is a prescription for destroying democracy over night in the name of saving it. And yet that’s what so many not just neocons but the neocons allies in the democratic party are cheering and it’s incredibly warped and dangerous…

This might be something I missed, but is her hair color affected by her mental/emotional state? And is that an aurin trait, an expert thing or just something neat for the character herself? Please keep up the awesome work!

Hey, yeah you were on the right track! I have given it a few thoughts, but it’s not set to stone yet. Her general appearance and the color of her conjured items are affected by how she is in the head really.

Pompeo confirmed as CIA chief
The Senate confirmed Mike Pompeo, President Donald Trump's pick for CIA director, on Monday night.
By Ashley Killough and Ted Barrett, CNN

Just a couple of notes about Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) you can easily find from browsing the web:

He served on a couple of Benghazi committees and says Hillary intentionally lied to America because Obama was up for reelection.

He says Muslim leaders who don’t speak out against Muslim terrorists on behalf of their entire religion are complicit in those terrorist attacks. No comment, however, on the three angry white dudes with a plot to blow up an apartment building in his homestate that was housing Muslim refugees.

He’s also pro-life, anti-Obamacare, pro-NRA, and supported shutting down the government when the GOP didn’t get its way. Basically, he’s your average asshole from the Republican party catching a sweet promotion from President Velveeta.

One positive note: He believes the intelligence on Russia’s hacking activity during our election. I mean, he’s not going to do anything about it but ya know. There’s that.
