editing to add: this link spells out the scenarios, much more informedly than I could, what might be behind the "smokescreen" I was talking about.
All honour to those who are making a stand against unethical, illegal or immoral acts, especially the former Acting Attorney-General, who is one of those described in last Sunday's psalm, about those who can't be moved or shaken, who stand by their undertakings, (as she, Sally Yates, stood by her oath to uphold justice) and don't sell out the innocent - for money or a career move or for anything else.
I said especially her, but I suppose there are others not in the public eye, in humbler positions who dare not go public, but are quietly not selling out the innocent. All honour to them, and may they one day get their due as people who upheld humanity when the system around them went the other way.
Meanwhile, I'm trying to trawl through mainstream media for good news on a daily basis, following megpie71 's lead. Not always easy to find things, but I find it useful, to keep afloat.
