The Blue Wall of Silence Over Police Brutality Must Come Down

Police in riot gear hold a line as they watch demonstrators Oct. 12 2014, in St. Louis protest the shooting deaths of Michael Brown and Vonderrit Myers Jr.  When good cops don’t speak up about the bad actors in their ranks, they betray the public trust.

BOXED IN ON OBAMACARE

An unusual and revealing political fight over health care has been unfolding in Florida. It's unusual because it pits Rick Scott, the Republican governor, against some members of his own party. It's revealing because it lays bare the motives of the Affordable Care Act's most determined detractors. Conservatives have plenty of genuine, intellectually honest reservations about the changes that came with Obamacare. They don't like the new government spending and regulation, for example.

Hillary Clinton enters 2016 race: 'Everyday Americans need a champion'

Hillary Rodham Clinton's long-anticipated announcement Sunday that she’s running for president may not have said much about policy, but it delivered an unambiguous message about the voters and a major theme she hopes will carry her to the White House. Clinton does not appear until two-thirds of the way through the two-minute, 20-second announcement video. Instead, her campaign presented a montage of the modern Democratic electoral coalition: two young mothers, one talking about moving to a...

The flurry of diplomacy, which kicked off Friday evening with an historic handshake between Obama and Castro, was aimed at injecting fresh momentum into their months-old plan to restore normal relations between their countries.
