National and Virginia News Headlines: Monday Morning


Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, May 18. Also, nice photo by Fairfax County Democratic Commitee Chair Sue Langley of Fairfax County Public School Board members Ryan McElveen and Ted Velkoff, plus future (hopefully!) School Board member Dalia Palchik.

*Obama to Limit Military-Style Equipment for Police (Good, this is utterly ridiculous.)

*This Photo Is Raising Questions About How Police Are Treating White Bikers After A Mass Murder (“Several commentators have noted that it’s a remarkably casual treatment of individuals who could be potential suspects for mass murder. No one is handcuffed and several people appear to have access to their cell phones.”)

*9 Are Killed in Biker Gang Shootout in Waco (Ah, America…guns, violence, more guns and more violence.)

*Jeb Bush’s brotherly bind

*The GOP Is Dying Off. Literally. (Hopefully a new, better, sane GOP will be reborn.)

*The Koch Brothers’ guide to 2016: How to win $1 billion for your Republican candidacy (“Which GOP candidate has the best chance of pulling in the dark-money score of the century?”)

*Jeb’s bankrupt healthcare fantasy: Expanding coverage with Apple Watches and freedom (This dolt is supposed to be the SMART Bush? Ha!)

*Herring Makes Another Good Call (“As Herring has said in another instance, the attorney general represents the people of Virginia, not just agencies of the state.”)

*Stimpson hopes for Cantor repeat in toppling Howell (Right now, there’s little sign of that happening.)

*OB-GYN wants to be the fourth Stolle in public office

*Experts: Divided Portsmouth council needs counseling

*Shockoe proposal moves another step backward

*D.C. area forecast: Humid with storm chances today and Tuesday; drier, cooler mid-week
