Norway Shooting: How many did I murder? Gunman asks what toll was and talks of '60-year war'

  • He believes in war you can do things like that without guilt'
  • Breivik could be housed in the £150m Halden Prison - considered one of the most luxurious jails in the world
  • Police say it will take two more weeks to find all the bodies
Mass murderer Anders Breivik was forced to ask his lawyer how many innocents he killed because he took so many drugs during his one man killing spree, his lawyer revealed yesterday.

The Norwegian fanatic regards himself as a 'warrior', thinks he has started a '60-year war' and will be hailed as the 'saviour' of Western Europe in decades to come, said Geir Lippestad.

But before gunning down 76 people, he swallowed a cocktail of drugs known as an 'ECA stack' to make him 'strong and efficient' and rapidly lost count of the death toll.

It included ephedrine, a powerful stimulant sometimes used by athletes to improve performance, and caffeine and aspirin.

Breivik, who also listened to his iPod during the massacre, said the 'ephedrine rush' would increase his 'aggressiveness, physical performance and mental focus'.

Best of the Web: I Do Not Want Mercy, I Want You To Join Me

© Portrait by Robert Shetterly"… those who write the rules are those who profit from the status quo. If we want to change that status quo, we might have to work outside of those rules because the legal pathways available to us have been structured precisely to make sure we don’t make any substantial change."
Tim DeChristopher, who was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison and a $10,000 fine for disrupting a Bureau of Land Management auction in 2008, had an opportunity to address the court and the judge immediately before his sentence was announced. This is his statement:

Thank you for the opportunity to speak before the court. When I first met Mr. Manross, the sentencing officer who prepared the presentence report, he explained that it was essentially his job to "get to know me." He said he had to get to know who I really was and why I did what I did in order to decide what kind of sentence was appropriate. I was struck by the fact that he was the first person in this courthouse to call me by my first name, or even really look me in the eye. I appreciate this opportunity to speak openly to you for the first time. I'm not here asking for your mercy, but I am here asking that you know me.

Mr. Huber has leveled a lot of character attacks at me, many of which are contrary to Mr. Manross's report. While reading Mr Huber's critiques of my character and my integrity, as well as his assumptions about my motivations, I was reminded that Mr Huber and I have never had a conversation. Over the two and half years of this prosecution, he has never asked my any of the questions that he makes assumptions about in the government's report. Apparently, Mr. Huber has never considered it his job to get to know me, and yet he is quite willing to disregard the opinions of the one person who does see that as his job.

US: Air Force Cites New Testament, Ex-Nazi, to Train Officers on Ethics of Launching Nuclear Weapons

The United States Air Force has been training young missile officers about the morals and ethics of launching nuclear weapons by citing passages from the New Testament and commentary from a former member of the Nazi Party, according to newly released documents.

The mandatory Nuclear Ethics and Nuclear Warfare session, which includes a discussion on St. Augustine's "Christian Just War Theory," is led by Air Force chaplains and takes place during a missile officer's first week in training at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The Christian Just War Theory has been touted by Rep. Ron Paul, a 2012 presidential candidate, during campaign stops.

St. Augustine's "Qualifications for Just War," according to the way it is cited in a 43-page PowerPoint presentation, are: "to avenge or to avert evil; to protect the innocent and restore moral social order (just cause)" and "to restore moral order; not expand power, not for pride or revenge (just intent)."

Israeli Operatives in the U.S.

Americans know that something fundamental is amiss. They sense - rightly - that they are being misled no matter which political party does the leading.

A long misinformed public lacks the tools to grasp how they are being deceived. Without those tools, Americans will continue to be frustrated at being played for the fool.

When the "con" is clearly seen, "the mark" (that's us) will see that all roads lead to the same duplicitous source: Israel and its operatives. The secret to Israel's force-multiplier in the U.S. is its use of agents, assets and sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers).

Wall Street steps up pressure for deal on budget cuts

Trading Floor
New York Stock Exchange
Key agencies of the American financial aristocracy are beginning to assert themselves directly and openly in the mounting political crisis in Washington, demanding a deal that would combine raising the federal debt ceiling with trillions of dollars in cuts in social spending.

The Obama administration has forecast that soon after next Tuesday, August 2, the government will be unable to pay its bills without further borrowing, now barred because the Treasury reached the current debt ceiling of $14.3 trillion in early May.

Late Monday, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the main center for the trading of derivatives, one of the major forms of financial speculation, announced that it would no long classify short-term Treasury bills as risk-free when used as collateral by traders. The exchange also will require traders to provide larger amounts of longer-term Treasury bonds when using them as collateral.

Are Republicans Committing Treason?

don't tread on me

Once upon a time, in a land that now seems to have been populated by tooth fairies and unicorns, there was a political party that had a set of core beliefs to which they actually adhered.

Among them was that actually balancing the budget, as opposed to just talking about it, was sacrosanct. Slow change, while necessary, had to be balanced against the traditions of the United States, ones that had mostly served us well over two centuries.

Foreign military adventures should be limited to our national security interests. And one of the single most important components of diplomacy was protecting the economic interests not only of an elite few, but of the great many Americans who toiled in our factories and fields.

Psychopathic Plutocracy: If Corporations and the Rich Paid 1960s-Level Taxes, the Debt Would Vanish

By feeding the rich and their corporations one massive tax break after another, lawmakers have thrown a monstrous monkey wrench into our national finances.

Once upon a time in America, back a century ago, our nation's rich paid virtually nothing in taxes to the federal government. And that same federal government did virtually nothing to better the lives of average Americans.

But those average Americans would do battle, over the next half century, to rein in the rich and the corporations that made them ever richer. And that struggle would prove remarkably successful. By the 1950s, America's rich and the corporations they ran were paying significant chunks of their annual incomes in taxes - and the federal projects and programs these taxes helped finance were actually improving average American lives.

America's wealthy, predictably, counterattacked - and, by the 1980s, they were scoring successes of their own.

Today, the rich and their corporations no longer bear anything close to their rightful share of the nation's tax burden. The federal government, given this revenue shortfall, is having a harder and harder time funding initiatives that help average working families. The result: a "debt crisis."

This "debt crisis" in no way had to happen. No natural disaster, no tsunami, has suddenly pounded the United States out of fiscal balance. We have simply suffered a colossal political failure. Our powers that be, by feeding the rich and their corporations one massive tax break after another, have thrown a monstrous monkey wrench into our national finances.

Some numbers - from an Institute for Policy Studies report released this past spring - can help us better visualize just how monumental this political failure has been.

If corporations and households taking in $1 million or more in income each year were now paying taxes at the same annual rates as they did back in 1961, the IPS researchers found, the federal treasury would be collecting an additional $716 billion a year.

Norway's monster and THE question

Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik
How much was the mind of Anders Behring Breivik conditioned and warped by Zionist propaganda as peddled with the assistance of Christian fundamentalism by much of the Western mainstream media and many web sites?

It's bad enough that Zionist propaganda has prevented a cure for the Israel-Palestine conflict, but if now that same propaganda is inspiring Europeans in Europe to slaughter their own, the future is very, very frightening.

Stephen Lendman: Norway's Oklahoma bombing? In that case, Breivik couldn't have acted alone

In an interview with Press TV soon after the terrorist attacks in Oslo, US radio talk show host and political commentator Stephen Lendman reflected on the Norwegian Chief of Police's prescient observation that the Oslo massacre was more like Norway's 'Oklahoma' than it's '9/11' by pointing out that the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building could not have been carried out by a lone right-wing extremist because a top explosives expert found that the building had to have been rigged from the inside.

Lendman is right: Believe nothing the mainstream media tells you! Do your own research!
