Senator Grassley Asks Why "Extremely Careless" Hillary Still Has Access To Classified State Dept. Info

 Official letter from Senator Chuck Grassley to Rex Tillerson 

The full text of Grassley’s letter can be read below:
* * *
March 30, 2017
The Honorable Rex W. Tillerson
U.S. Department of State
Washington, D.C. 20520
Dear Secretary Tillerson:
The Bureau of Diplomatic Security is the administrative body within the State Department that handles security clearance investigations, suspensions, and if needed, revocations.  During the course of the Committee’s investigation into Secretary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and the impact of her private server on the Freedom of Information Act, on February 16, 2016 then-Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Greg Starr met with Committee staff.  Assistant Director Starr informed my staff that Secretary Clinton’s security clearance, and those of her staff, had not been suspended or revoked because Diplomatic Security was waiting until the FBI concluded its criminal investigation before beginning an administrative review.  On March 24, 2016, Committee staff met again with Mr. Starr and asked the same questions and received the same responses.  I have repeatedly asked the State Department whether Secretary Clinton and her associates had their clearances suspended or revoked to which the Obama Administration refused to respond. Recently, the State Department informed the Committee that six additional Secretary Clinton staff at State were designated as her research assistants which allowed them to retain their clearances after leaving the Department.
On July 5, 2016, Director Comey announced that “[a]fter a tremendous amount of work over the last year, the FBI is completing its investigation and referring the case to the Department of Justice for a prosecutive decision.”[2]  Director Comey stated that Secretary Clinton and staff were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information” and “there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information…”[3]  Director Comey said.
There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about the matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.[4]
However, Director Comey did not recommend criminal prosecution.  In announcing that decision, he also noted that “[t]o be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.  To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions.”[5]
It is unclear what steps the State Department has taken to impose administrative sanctions.
Any other government workers who engaged in such serious offenses would, at a minimum, have their clearances suspended pending an investigation.  The failure to do so has given the public the impression that Secretary Clinton and her associates received special treatment.
Please provide answers to the following questions:
  1. Does the State Department agree with the FBI’s finding that Secretary Clinton and her staff were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information” and that “there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information…”?
  2. Does the State Department agree with the FBI’s finding that “[t]here is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those with whom she was corresponding about the matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation”?
  3. Does the State Department agree with the FBI’s finding that despite not recommending criminal prosecution, “this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences.  To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions”?
  4. As a result of the FBI investigation, has the State Department begun a security review due to the mishandling of classified information by Secretary Clinton and her colleagues and associates?  If so, which individuals’ clearances are part of the review?  If not, why not?  Please explain.
  5. As a result of the FBI investigation, has the State Department suspended or revoked Secretary Clinton’s clearance or that of any of her colleagues or associates, to include her subordinates at State and her attorneys?  If so, which individuals?  If not, why not?  Please explain.
Please number your answers according to their corresponding questions.  I anticipate that your written response and the responsive documents will be unclassified.  Please send all unclassified material directly to the Committee.  In keeping with the requirements of Executive Order 13526, if any of the responsive documents do contain classified information, please segregate all unclassified material within the classified documents, provide all unclassified information directly to the Committee, and provide a classified addendum to the Office of Senate Security.  The Committee complies with all laws and regulations governing the handling of classified information.  The Committee is not bound, absent its prior agreement, by any handling restrictions or instructions on unclassified information unilaterally asserted by the Executive Branch.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this request.  Please respond to this request by April 13, 2017.  Should you have any questions, please contact Josh Flynn-Brown of my Judiciary Committee staff at (202) 224-5225.  Thank you for your cooperation.
Charles E. Grassley
Committee on the Judiciary 

#WikiLeaks Reveals #Marble: Proof CIA Disguises Their Hacks As Russian, Chinese, Arabic...#FalseFlagMalware

WikiLeaks’ latest Vault 7 release contains a batch of documents, named ‘Marble’, which detail CIA hacking tactics and how they can misdirect forensic investigators from attributing viruses, trojans and hacking attacks to their agency by inserted code fragments in foreign languages.  The tool was in use as recently as 2016.  Per the WikiLeaks release:
"The source code shows that Marble has test examples not just in English but also in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi. This would permit a forensic attribution double game, for example by pretending that the spoken language of the malware creator was not American English, but Chinese, but then showing attempts to conceal the use of Chinese, drawing forensic investigators even more strongly to the wrong conclusion, --- but there are other possibilities, such as hiding fake error messages."
 The latest release is said to potentially allow for 'thousands' of cyber attacks to be attributed to the CIA which were originally blamed on foreign governments.

"Putin Trolls Kerry" RT video of Kerry's trip to Moscow March 24, 2016

Putin trolls Kerry during talks in Moscow, State Sec promises ‘surprise’ in response

Published on Mar 24, 2016

Putin wonders why Kerry was carrying his own luggage upon his arrival to Moscow, joking that perhaps the state secretary has brought 'money to haggle with.' Kerry promises to show what's hidden in the case during private talks, telling Putin he will be 'pleasantly surprised.' 

2016 Primary election results and dates

What Happened In The March 15 Primaries (five thirty eight)

A Move To Winner-Take-All Is Helping Trump Crush It
Consider this: Up until today, Trump had won 42 percent of all GOP delegates with just 34 percent of the vote. By my estimate tonight, it appears he’s on track to win about 67 percent of the delegates at stake, even though he’s averaged only a hair over 40 percent of today’s votes. That’s a huge disparity. The reason: Today’s transition from proportional allocation to winner-take-all.

From now on, even tiny Trump pluralities (like the one we’re seeing just barely in Missouri, barring some magical Cruz precincts) will net him enormous shares of delegates. Up until today, only 5 percent of all GOP delegates were awarded on a winner-take-all basis. Between tonight and the final primaries in June, 64 percent of GOP delegates will be allocated on a winner-take-all basis. That’s an enormous catalyst for Trump’s drive to 1,237.

Obama knew by the March 22nd primary that Trump was going to be the GOP candidate! ( Two days later Kerry goes to Russia) 

How The March 22 Primary Elections Went Down (five thirty eight) 

Bad News For Cruz: There Just Aren’t A Lot Of “Natural Fit” States Left
Tonight’s likely result of a split verdict — Trump winning Arizona and Cruz stomping him in Utah — would seem to suggest a close fight between the two from here on out. But the problem for Cruz is the same one we’ve been talking about for over a month: There just aren’t a ton of great states for him later in the calendar. Almost every state with a high share of evangelical Protestants have already voted, and the two states with the highest shares of Mormons — Trump’s worst group by a mile — will have already voted after tonight (Idaho and Utah).

In fact, between now and June, the only states left where more than 3-in-10 residents are either evangelical Protestants or Mormons are Indiana (32 percent), Montana (32 percent), Oregon (33 percent) and West Virginia (41 percent). Together, these states account for just 146 of the 905 delegates at stake in remaining contests. And, West Virginia is probably Trump’s prototypical state, not Cruz’s. To me, these are the most damning statistics when it comes to Cruz’s bid to prevent Trump from winning 1,237 delegates

Senate Intel Committee Throws Hail Mary - Trots Out "1000 Russian Trolls" That Influenced Swing States With Fake News!

Now that the CrowdStrike DNC election hacking report is looking more and more like a ham-handed scheme orchestrated by anti-Russia, anti-Trump factions - which include Atlantic Council co-chairs Evelyn Farkas and CrowdStrike's Dmitri Alperovitch, it appears the "Muh Russia" contingency is just haphazardly throwing their remaining cards on the table. The men in wood paneled rooms have apparently let the lunatics run the asylum.
While the House Intelligence Committee is hard at work sifting through revelations that the Obama administration spied on Trump and his team, top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee Mark Warner (D-VA) has dribbled forth completely unsupported claims that Russia influenced the election by employing a ShareBlue-esque army of "Internet Trolls" to post Fake News stories in swing states!
Mr Warner said: “We know about the hacking, and selective leaks, but what really concerns me as a former tech guy is at least some reports – and we’ve got to get to the bottom of this – that there were upwards of a thousand internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect taking over a series of computers which are then called botnets, that can then generate news down to specific areas.
I'll give you a second to recover...
What's "Nerd Virgin" in Russian?
Sorry folks from Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania - you've been had! Victimized! Fake News'd by the Russians! Your puny brains were no match for neckbearded Putin puppets who used the latest in mind control to rock the voteski.
“It’s been reported to me, and we’ve got to find this out, whether they were able to affect specific areas in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, where you would not have been receiving off of whoever your vendor might have been, Trump versus Clinton, during the waning days of the election, but instead, ‘Clinton is sick’, or ‘Clinton is taking money from whoever for some source’ … fake news
Funny enough, the United States does exactly this, called SOCKPUPPETING. Very original Werner...

Churches harboring illegal aliens!

Per 8 US Code 1324: Harboring illegal aliens in a church (or anywhere else), is a felony. Penalties include fines and up to 5 years in prison.
This includes both those who directly aid or abet the commission of the crime and those who engage in any conspiracy to commit the crime.
In the past, priests, nuns, and lay members of churches have been tried and convicted of violating Title 8. The largest such conviction happened in 1985 with 16 being convicted of 71 counts of criminal conspiracy and aiding and abetting "illegal aliens to enter the United States by shielding, harboring and transporting them".
Churches should not be abused as harbors for illegal aliens. Let's hope churches make the right choice to abide by the law and set a positive example of lawfulness to their congregations. 

Code Switch's Adrian Florido has been covering the new sanctuary movement for us. For this episode, he spoke to key players to understand why hundreds of churches are ready to start a public fight with the current administration to prevent deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

OUTRAGE! More than 300 North Carolina notaries were illegal residents, records show

A state representative is demanding the resignation of North Carolina's secretary of state after reviewing documents that show 320 people with no legal residency status were given notary positions for nearly a decade. 
Rep. Christopher Millis voiced his concerns in an interview with Fox News over details found within documents provided by North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall’s office. Marshall told Fox News the Dept. of Homeland Security approved the notary authorizations.
“We found over 320 nonpermanent residents that her office commissioned as notaries. Including one that was slated for final deportation,” Millis said. “It’s very concerning not just the fact that these individuals will have the ability to affirm items like oath, but also the ability in our state for them to certify absentee ballots.” 
Millis says these same documents show Marshall’s office regularly accepted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cards as forms of identification which he claims on his website are not valid to prove residency. “A DACA card is a temporary employment authorization to facilitate safe and legitimate employment and income for otherwise undocumented aliens but does not confer legal immigration status.”
Millis stressed these same concerns in a nine-page letter written to Secretary Elaine Marshall on March 27th. He ended the letter by asking for her resignation.
“I make all of these implications very seriously and I’m not making any of this lightly,” Millis said. “Whenever I ask the Secretary to resign immediately or I made it clear to her that I will move through with a resolution for impeachment if she so chooses not to resign.” 
In an email statement to Fox News, Marshall says Millis’ request for her resignation is a political attack by “an opponent in a recent election.”
“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has authorized the specifically mentioned notaries to work here lawfully,” Marshall wrote. “That federally authorized status continues to be unchanged by the new Presidential administration.”
Millis also said a similar statement was made when this issue became public late last year. 
“This being masked from the public and including a number of misleading and false statements made by the Secretary and her office since the article went out in September and all up until this point, its definitely clear it meets the allegations of her impeachment on malfeasance,” Millis said.

Lamech ...Jachin and Boaz

Early ritualists confused the mythical pillars of stone, spoken of in almost all the old Charges, or Manuscript Constitutions of the Craft, with the Brazen pillars of the porch - the result is that modern Freemasons have composite pillars, fusing of the ancient and the mythical pillars on which were supposed to be engraved the arts and sciences of the time before the flood, and those which Hiram Abif erected - undoubtedly with Egyptian influences and memories of Egyptian Temples to guide him - before the great house of the Lord which Solomon built.

The fascinating, if wholly legendary, history of the Craft, repeated with variations in the majority of the old manuscript rolls, beginning with the Regius of 1390, is older than any Freemasonry we know in practice. The story varies from manuscript to manuscript, but in its essentials is much the same - it was evidently a tradition as strong in its day as is our legend of Hiram. To quote but a few line bearing on the pillars, consider these words from the York Manuscript No. 1, written about A.D. 1600:

“Before Noah flood there was a man called Lamech as is written in the Scriptures in ye Chatr of Genesis And this Lamech had two wives ye one named Adah by whome he had two sons ye one named Jabell ye other named Jubell And his other wife was called Zillah by whome he had one son named Tubelcaine & one Daughter named Naamah & these four children founded ye beginnings of all ye Sciences in ye world viz Jabell ye oldest Sone found out ye Science of Geomatre he was a keepr of flocks and sheep Lands in the Fields as it is noted in ye Chaptr before sd And his bother Jubell found ye Science of Musicke Song of the Tongue harpe & organ And ye third brother Tuball Caine found ye Science called Smith Craft of Gold Silvr Iron Coppr & Steele & ye daughter found ye ara of Weaving And these persons knowing right well yt God would take vengencance for sinne either by fire or water wherefore they writt their severall Sciences yt they had found in two pillars of stone yt might be found aftr Noah his Flood And ye one stonbe would not burn wth fire & ye othr called Lternes because it would not dround wth wtr etc.”

The word here spelled “Lternes” is rendered on other old Constitutions as “laterns,” usually translated “brick.” But marble does not resist fire; brick - especially early unscientifically vitrified brick - does not resist water.  If the word be considered a perversion of “latten,” which means brass or bronze, then the ancient legendary pillars are made of metal and marble, a more sensible idea, since metal would resist fire, and the marble, water.  In Tyre was the great Temple to Herakles with two pillars, one of gold, the other of smaragdus (polished green marble).  Other Tyrian Temples to Melkarth had two metal pillars or two monoliths.  Modern Masonry has hollow pillars to serve as safe repositories for the “archives of Masonry” and to preserve them from flood and fire, in spite of the fact that sacred history says nothing of Masonry, or the reason for the pillars being hollow.  It is reasonable to suppose that the ancient Masonic tradition of Lamech’s children and their pillars was confused, as knowledge of the Bible became more common after the invention of printing, with other “brazen pillars” of an ancient day, and finally with those of Solomon’s Temple.  How high were the pillars?  A question which has agitated American Freemasonry - largely without reason - for many years!  A majority of American rituals state that they were thirty-five cubits in heights.  A minority hold to eighteen..  One compromises on thirty.  A few do not give the height at all.

Carbon dating system

Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon-14 dating) is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon (14
C), a radioactive isotope of carbon.

The method was developed by Willard Libby in the late 1940s and soon became a standard tool for archaeologists. Libby received the Nobel Prize for his work in 1960. The radiocarbon dating method is based on the fact that radiocarbon is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen. The resulting radiocarbon combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis; animals then acquire 14
C by eating the plants. When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and from that point onwards the amount of 14
C it contains begins to decrease as the 14
C undergoes radioactive decay. Measuring the amount of 14
C in a sample from a dead plant or animal such as a piece of wood or a fragment of bone provides information that can be used to calculate when the animal or plant died. The older a sample is, the less 14
C there is to be detected, and because the half-life of 14
C (the period of time after which half of a given sample will have decayed) is about 5,730 years, the oldest dates that can be reliably measured by this process date to around 50,000 years ago, although special preparation methods occasionally permit accurate analysis of older samples.

Willard Frank Libby (December 17, 1908 – September 8, 1980) was an American physical chemist noted for his role in the 1949 development of radiocarbon dating, a process which revolutionized archaeology and palaeontology. For his contributions to the team that developed this process, Libby was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1960.

The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule

A civil war has begun.
This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.
The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.
It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.  
It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.
It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.
There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.
After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions.
This isn’t just hypocrisy. That’s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.
Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.
 That’s why compromise has become impossible. 

Flashback 1988: “Get Ready For A World Currency by 2018″ – The Economist Magazine!

Title of article: Get Ready for the Phoenix

Source: Economist; 01/9/88, Vol. 306, pp 9-10

THIRTY years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.

At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction. Proposals for eventual monetary union proliferated five and ten years ago, but they hardly envisaged the setbacks of 1987. The governments of the big economies tried to move an inch or two towards a more managed system of exchange rates – a logical preliminary, it might seem, to radical monetary reform. For lack of co-operation in their underlying economic policies they bungled it horribly, and provoked the rise in interest rates that brought on the stock market crash of October. These events have chastened exchange-rate reformers. The market crash taught them that the pretence of policy co-operation can be worse than nothing, and that until real co-operation is feasible (i.e., until governments surrender some economic sovereignty) further attempts to peg currencies will flounder.

The new world economy
The biggest change in the world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates. as a result of the relentless integration of the world’s financial markets, differences in national economic policies can disturb interest rates (or expectations of future interest rates) only slightly, yet still call forth huge transfers of financial assets from one country to another. These transfers swamp the flow of trade revenues in their effect on the demand and supply for different currencies, and hence in their effect on exchange rates. As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still. With unco-ordinated economic policies, currencies can get only more volatile.
In all these ways national economic boundaries are slowly dissolving. As the trend continues, the appeal of a currency union across at least the main industrial countries will seem irresistible to everybody except foreign-exchange traders and governments. In the phoenix zone, economic adjustment to shifts in relative prices would happen smoothly and automatically, rather as it does today between different regions within large economies (a brief on pages 74-75 explains how.) The absence of all currency risk would spur trade, investment and employment.

The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate – and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world.

As the next century approaches, the natural forces that are pushing the world towards economic integration will offer governments a broad choice. They can go with the flow, or they can build barricades. Preparing the way for the phoenix will mean fewer pretended agreements on policy and more real ones. It will mean allowing and then actively promoting the private-sector use of an international money alongside existing national monies. That would let people vote with their wallets for the eventual move to full currency union. The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power.
The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect. Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.

Merkel's conservatives come first in German Saarland state vote

Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives strengthened their position as the largest party in an election in the small state of Saarland on Sunday, in a boost to her quest to win a fourth term in Germany's Sept. 24 national election, exit polls showed.
Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) fetched 41 percent of the vote in the Saarland, up from 35.2 percent in the last election there in 2012, an exit poll for broadcaster ARD showed. The Social Democrats (SPD) won 29.5 percent, down from 30.6 percent. [L5N1H308W]
Like federal Germany, Saarland is currently governed by a 'grand coalition' of the CDU and the SPD.
The result leaves the CDU short of sufficient support to rule alone in the state. The SPD and the far-left Linke, which won 13 percent, also lack enough votes to form a left-leaning coalition in the state assembly.

The right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) won 6 percent. The environmentalist Greens failed to reach the 5 percent threshold to enter the state assembly.

Social justice activist found bound and stabbed to death in DC

Corrina Mehiel, a thirty-four-year-old white female, was found dead inside a basement apartment on the 600 block of 14th Street NE, Washington, DC. She had been tied up and stabbed to death. Her body was found on March 22nd. She had last been seen with friends on Sunday, March 19th. She was supposed to leave the DC Area the next morning.
Her 2004 blue Toyota Prius was stolen. It has Kentucky license plate number 722RMY. Police have released pictures of a black male that they believed was driving her stolen car when he stopped at convenience stores in Beltsville and Laurel, Maryland.
Mehiel is described as an artist and dedicated social justice activist. According to her friend Mel Chin, visiting professor at GW’s Corcoran School of Art and Design, “Corrina was a feminist she wanted to end to violence against women. She was committed to fairness and justice, and always fought for the rights of others. For example, she’d be the first to point out that victims of violence in D.C. are disproportionately people of color.”
Corrina Mehiel worked with Mel Chin at his art studio in Asheville, NC. She was in DC to help Chin set up an art exhibit. Mehiel was an instructor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati from 2014 to 2016. She taught a course on using art to affect social change. Her Facebook page largely consists of political posts.
How much you want to bet she told him she was an anti-racist social justice warrior and he killed her anyway! Karma!
