Given that the Washington Post has already repeatedly admitted that they lie to their readers whenever doing so suits their agenda.
Here at the Wilderness of Mirror’s I have been warning anyone who would listen for years that the Mainstream Media cannot be trusted. America’s self inflicted “It can’t happen here” delusions have cost America dearly. Let me make this 100 percent perfectly clear, the Washington Post is not the exception to the rule, they are the rule. Just as CBS knowingly and willfully lied with Dan Rather’s “False but accurate” lies, so virtually the entire American Media, the Fifth Column Treasonous Media have and are daily engaging in exactly the same dishonest treasonous behavior.
At The Washington Post, it often seems like liberal bloggers rule the roost. And as the 2014 campaign ramps up, two of those bloggers have made it clear that telling a falsehood is perfectly ethical — as long as it starts a discussion.
Last week, two Wonk Blog writers claimed the Keystone Pipeline would benefit the Koch brothers. They did so by pointing out some information that would be devastating, were it based in reality:
To see Dana Milbank engaging is such behavior is, of course not surprising in the slightest. What is more than a little amusing, is watching the way Dana is squirming and squealing though. Dana has spent the last 5 and a half years knowingly and intentionally lying to the American People about Barack Obama. In Dante Inferno their is a special circle in hell dedicated to individuals like Dana Milbank.
Traitors Traitors Traitors Traitors
Dante divides circle 9, the circle of treachery–defined in Inferno 11 as fraudulent acts between individuals who share special bonds of love and trust (61-6)–into four regions. Caina is named after the biblical Cain (first child of Adam and Eve), who slew his brother Abel out of envy after God showed appreciation for Abel’s sacrificial offering but not Cain’s (Genesis 4:1-17); condemned to a vagabond existence, Cain later built a city (named after his son, Henoch) that for certain Christian theologians–notably Augustine (City of God, book 15)–represented the evils of the earthly city. In the circle of the lustful, Francesca identified her husband (Gianciotto)–who murdered her and Paolo (Gianciotto’s brother)–as a future inhabitant of Caina (Inf. 5.107). Dante’s attention is here drawn to two brothers, the ghibelline Napoleone and the guelph Alessandro, who murdered one another because of a dispute over their inheritance (Inf. 32.55-60).
The second region, Antenora, is named for the Trojan prince Antenor. While the classical sources–notably Homer’s Iliad–present Antenor in a positive (or at least neutral) light as one in favor of returning Helen to the Greeks for the good of Troy, medieval versions–histories, commentaries, and romances–view him as a “treacherous Judas” who plots with the Greeks to destroy the city. Dante places in this region those who betrayed their political party or their homeland.
In the third zone of circle 9 suffer those who betrayed friends or guests. Ptolomea is named after one or both of the following: Ptolemy, the captain of Jericho, honored his father-in-law, the high priest Simon Maccabee, and two of Simon’s sons with a great feast and then murdered them (1 Maccabees 16:11-17); Ptolemy XII, brother of Cleopatra, arranged that the Roman general Pompey–seeking refuge following his defeat at the battle of Pharsalia (48 B.C.E.)–be murdered as soon as he stepped ashore. Dante displays his abhorrence of such crimes by devising a special rule for those who betray their guests: their souls descend immediately to hell and their living bodies are possessed by demons when they commit these acts (Inf. 33.121-6).
Judecca, named after the apostle who betrayed Jesus (Judas Iscariot), is the innermost zone of the ninth and final circle of hell. The term also hints at a manifestation of Christian prejudice–which Dante certainly shares–against Judaism and Jews in the Middle Ages: it alludes to the names–Iudeca, Judaica–for the area within certain cities (e.g., Venice) where Jews were forced to live, apart from the Christian population. Together with Judas in this region of hell are others who, by betraying their masters or benefactors, committed crimes with great historical and societal consequences. Completely covered by the ice–like “straw in glass”–the shades are locked in various postures with no mobility or sound whatsoever (Inf. 34.10-15).
While it is a fitting end to people like Dana, I personally prefer the Schadenfreude of watching them writhe in the agony of of being hoisted upon their own tr4echorous petards, or rather Impaled as Vlad the Impaler would have done to them.
During the 15th century, Vlad III (“Dracula”), Prince of Wallachia, is credited as the first notable figure to prefer this method of execution during the late medieval period, and became so notorious for its liberal employment that among his several nicknames he was known as Vlad the Impaler. After being orphaned, betrayed, forced into exile and pursued by his enemies, he retook control of Wallachia in 1456. He dealt harshly with his enemies, especially those who had betrayed his family in the past, or had profited from the misfortunes of Wallachia. Though a variety of methods was employed, he has been most associated with his use of impalement. The liberal use of capital punishment was eventually extended to Saxon settlers, members of a rival clan, and criminals in his domain, whether they were members of the boyar nobility or peasants, and eventually to any among his subjects that displeased him. Following the multiple campaigns against the invading Ottoman Turks, Vlad would never show mercy to his prisoners of war. The road to Vlad’s capital of Wallachia eventually became inundated in a “forest” of 20,000 impaled and decaying corpses, and it is reported that Mehmet II’s invading army of Turks turned back to Constantinople in 1462 after encountering thousands of impaled corpses along the Danube River. Woodblock prints from the era portray his victims impaled from either the frontal or the dorsal aspect, but not vertically.

As an example of how Vlad Țepeș soon became iconic for all horrors unimaginable, the following pamphlet from 1521 pours out putative incidents like this one:
Dana has turned is poison pen against Trey Gowdy, Trey’s sin? that of daring to threaten to expose the criminal misdeeds of the Obamanation Administration. Dana Milbank, like the vast majority of his fellow traitorous scum infesting the Fifth Column Treasonous Media have known all along that Barack Obama is a Marxist, but because they themselves are also Marxists, and their only moral value is that “The End Justifies the Means” Dana and his ilk have constantly lied to America about everything Barack Obama’s corrupt administration has done.
Oh I know, but let us not be deceived, ok? Yes Dana and his ilk deny being Marxists, they prefer to insist that they are enlightened Liberal Progressives. You and I are suppose to be too thick, too stupid to know or understand that Progressive is a term invented by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels designed too allow Marxism to infiltrate America. Or worse yet, we are suppose to be too simple minded to understand the nuanced difference between Progressive and Marxists.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, the tea party Republican tapped to lead the new committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks, made a telling slip Wednesday morning in describing his mission.
Asked by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough about the possibility that his panel’s work would continue into the 2016 election campaign, Gowdy replied that “if an administration is slow-walking document production, I can’t end a trial simply because the defense won’t cooperate.”
A trial? And the Obama administration is the defense? So much for that “serious investigation” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) promised; his new chairman intends to play prosecutor, proving the administration’s guilt to the jury — in this case, the public.
As a legal matter, Gowdy, a volcanic former prosecutor, is on shaky ground declaring his committee a court and his investigation a trial. But his honesty is refreshing, and it confirms what seemed implicit in Boehner’s selection of the second-term South Carolinian to head the panel over more experienced and less combative colleagues.
In a broader sense, Gowdy’s rapid ascent in the party fits closely with what House Republicans are doing in this midterm election year: abandoning any pretense of legislating in favor of unremitting hostilities with the White House.
Gowdy, who deploys courtroom theatrics on the House floor and in committee hearings, often wears his gray hair long and slicked back and has gained attention for wild-eyed, high-volume bursts of pious indignation. The rise of another Southern white male to the top of the GOP probably won’t improve its demographic difficulties, but Gowdy’s climb is a key example of how the Republican Party has blunted the tea party threat in large part by co-opting the movement.
Let’s face it, Dana Milbank and his traitorous brethren have every reason to be angry and fear the results of Trey Gowdy’s investigation, since not only is it going to show the mendacious malfeasance of the Obamanation Administration, but the inevitable consequences will also be to expose the extent that the Fifth Column Treasonous Media has been a willing co-conspirator of the Obamanation Administration.
