Key US Ally warns Women not to Drive,
It's a crime to "Abscond" from your job in the UAE, by the way. Slavery is officially illegal there.

How about a Clinton Warren ticket,
There's one possible option if Warren doesn't run. Bernie.
On Meet the Press (with a blunt object in your hand, the heavier the better):
"If the American people understand what goes on in countries like Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and other countries, they will say, ‘Whoa, I didn't know that!’” Sanders said, pointing out that health care is considered a right, “R-I-G-H-T,” among even the most conservative politicians in Denmark.
Sanders described his credo as a fight to protect America’s working class from what he sees as the threat of an approaching “oligarchic form of society.”
“You have today in America more income and wealth inequality than any time in this country since 1928 and more than any major country in the world,” Sanders said. “So, you got the top one percent owning 38 percent of the wealth in America. Do you know what the bottom 60 percent own? 2.3 percent.”
“You know what that is?" he said. "That's called oligarchy."
Though Sanders isn’t making any secret of his possible 2016 presidential bid, he said he’s still determining whether he could generate a sufficient level of grassroots support on which to build a campaign.
Seems like Progressives are getting stronger, finally. Zephyr Teachout gave Andrew Cuomo a run for his money in the primaries, a guy who is the son of a former Governor with a huge political machine behind him. She got 35% of the primary vote, which is huge against an incumbent in a their own party's primary.

We can survive without Russian gas now, says Lithuania's president,
HEY YOU says
How's that American,EU FUBAR Ukrainian collapse working out for EU citizens?
Not too well. Behind the scenes, Merkel is taking a lot of flak.
Merkel has already pissed off the rest of Europe with her insistence on a strong Euro and being immovable on bad debt.
The only people that got out of it was Finland, they agreed to open new diary product facilities in Russia itself. Most of Poland's apples rotted in the orchard.
Behind the scenes much is taking place. Sikorski the Russophobe (married to Anne Applebaum, an American Neocon) was fired from him position in the Foreign Ministry of Poland, and he just got more flak for saying that Russia offered to partition Ukraine with Poland. Russia denies, and Sikorski was forced to admit it was hearsay, making Poland look bad. He can forget about a replacement position in the government anytime soon.
Meanwhile, Putin partied with Italian politicians and dissed Merkel by showing up hours late to their meeting, and then telling the press "We're still too far apart" when Merkel was pressuring him to pressure the Donbas into not holding Elections.
In Kiev, neonazis and Svoboda clashed with police over giving the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, implicated in countless atrocities during WW2, Veteran's Benefits, and adding all 14th Galizen SS and Abwehr and Einsatzgruppen volunteers to the Veteran Benefit rolls, as well.
BTW, Russian Agra sector has boomed because of the ban. It had been cheaper just to buy the Euro posh cheese and fruit, but now there's an incentive for Russian business to invest in food production.
The Black Earth of Russia can replace Euro products much faster and easier than Europe can replace Russian Energy.
