Obama signs 'Blue Alert' law to protect police (-back in May but it was not widely publicized.) The law will require instant nationwide "Blue Alerts" to warn about threats to police officers and help track down the suspects who carry them out. The Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu National Blue Alert Act of 2015 is named for the two New York Police Department officers killed in an ambush attack last December. It was so uncontroversial that it passed both the House and the Senate by voice vote. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2015/05/19/obama-blue-alert-law-bill-signing/27578911/

Rick Perry drops out, but with a warning for the GOP RNC. "First, the answer to a president nominated for soaring rhetoric and no record is not to nominate a candidate whose rhetoric speaks louder than his record," Perry's prepared remarks said, warning conservatives against "falling for the cult of personality."Perry continued, "My second warning is this: we cannot indulge nativist appeals that divide the nation further. The answer to our current divider-in-chief is not to elect a Republican divider-in-chief." http://www.cbsnews.com/news/rick-perry-drops-out-of-2016-presidential-race/
