    She appeared in San Francisco at a marketing conference, Clinton, broadly well-thought-out the Democratic front-runner if she enters the race. In the conference she was asked “What’s your plan? Are you going to do it? You can announce it here if you’d like.” For which she answered, “I’m actually here trying to get some marketing advice.”

    Appearing at a marketing conference in San Francisco, Clinton, broadly well-thought-out the Democratic front-runner if she enters the race, was asked by an interviewer: “What’s your plan? Are you going to do it? You can announce it here if you’d like.”

    “I’m actually here trying to get some marketing advice,” Clinton quipped, before adding: “I am obviously flattered and deeply honoured to have people ask me and people encourage me. She quipped, before adding: “I am obviously flattered and deeply honoured to have people ask me and people encourage me.”

    She further said, “Part of it is because the hard questions are not: “Do you want to be president? Can you win? The hard questions are why. Why would you want to do this and what can you offer that could make a difference?”

    Earlier the lady, who was defeated by President Barack Obama in the rivalry for the 2008 nomination of Democratic presidential, said that it was a period of political dysfunction which the United States was experiencing.

    Clinton, who served as secretary of state in the first term of Obama said, “I saw it from afar when I was secretary and it was disheartening and even embarrassing to see people arguing about letting us default on our debt, really, and things that were just so beyond the pale,” she further said, “You had to ask yourself what kind of country do they really want … What is their plan? What is their vision? So if you’re going to compete in this arena, you have to be able to put forth your purpose and vision.”

    Hillary Clinton, the one who is giving speeches countrywide ever since she left the State Department, i.e. last year, repeatedly bounces questions about her ambitions of being a president. She said she bearing in mind a White House attempt, but she has still not decided on it, and will decided before the end of 2014. Clinton said, “I’m not going to make a decision for a while because I’m actually enjoying my life. I’m actually having fun.”

    WASHINGTON: A suspected serial killer condemned of assaulting a teenage girl to death, was executed in Texas on Thursday. It was performed after his challenge was rejected by the federal appeals court, over the drugs to be used in his lethal injection.

    He was the fifth person executed in Texas and fifteenth in the United States this year. According to the Death Penalty Information Center, this state executes more people than any other in the nation

    The Supreme Court of US denied his last appeals just about an hour before the execution, which says that there were chances of the case being different if only the state were using a drug never before used or unheard of, with completely unknown effectiveness, which actually was not the case. After the denial of the stay, attorneys Jonathan Ross and Maurie Levin said in the statement for Sells, “Without transparency about lethal injections, particularly the source and purity of drugs to be used, it is impossible to ensure that executions are humane and constitutional,”

    According to the documents of court Sells was sentenced of stabbing a girl aged 13 years and a murder attempt to a 10-year-old girl in 1999 on New Year’s Eve at the home of Del Rio, the man who owed him money for drug.

    The documents of courts show that Sells entered Rio’s house with the intention of sexually assault the girl who was sleeping on her bunk bed. He stabbed her multiple times and eventually slashed her throat, killing her after when she awoke. He further slit the throat of the girl who was sleeping in the top bunk, a 10-year-old. The girl managed to walk to the neighbour’s house for help after Sells fled.

    Believing multiple media reports, the culprit confessed to nearly 70 murders, since he was 16 years old.

    After the re-establishment of the death penalty in 1976 by US Supreme Court, Texas has executed 513 people.

    WASHINGTON: 25 Years jail has been declared on Monday to the man who opened fire on the White House having an assault rifle with him after informing his friend’s about being in a mission from God to kill Barack Obama, the President.
    25 Years Jail for the Man who Fired Shots at White House

    The man named Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez drove more than 3,200 kilometres (2,000 miles) to the capital of US from his hometown which was in Idaho in order to carry out his November 2011 attack.

    Believing on the statement of prosecutors, the man, after telling his friend that he was “on a mission from God to take out” Obama, fired at least eight rounds at the White House. Fortunately the president and his family were on living at the White House at the time and there was no harm caused to anyone in the incident.
    This 23 years old, pleaded guilty in the month of September to weapons and terror charges. Additional to his terms in jail, he was ordered to pay the compensation for the destruction done to the White House by his attack. The amount of which is nearly $94,000.

    Ronald Machen, the US Attorney said, “This man drove cross-country to launch an assault rifle attack on the White House”. He further said, “He was motivated by hatred for the president and the desire to start a revolution against the federal government. This 25-year prison sentence demonstrates that anyone who comes to the nation’s capital planning to use violence should expect to spend decades behind bars.”

    The man (Ortega-Hernandez) was arrested by the cops in less than a week after his attack in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Justice Department revealed that Ortega-Hernandez reiterated anti-government statements beginning in 2010, describing Obama “the anti-Christ,” and “the devil” while later describing himself as a “cold-hearted warrior of God.”

As per the statement of a Russian foreign ministry, “while the sanctions introduced by the United States and the European Union are unacceptable and will not remain without consequences.”

    Putin, in reference to the Lavrov’s remarks said, “Western attempts to frighten Russia with sanctions would be viewed as an act of aggression, and that Moscow would retaliate.” Kerry paraphrased the position of Washington saying the takeover of Crimea and the referendum were unacceptable and illegal.
