When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Karl Rove "Enemy Lists" Numero UNO

{The above pictures is what should have happened to Karl Rove for outing CIA operative Valerie Plame}

Karl Rove fired back at recent accusations that he has "funded" conservative groups responsible for pouring money into nationwide conservative causes, and disputed the validity of statements made by President Obama and the Democratic National Committee.

So not to be trumped Karl Rove jumps the George Soros bandwagon (Soros has been linked to funding the left during G.W. Bush last run for office). Mr. Rove emphatically denies being tied to "funding and advising" conservative groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS. (Just like he didn't have anything to do with the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame)

Mr. Rove complains of being on B-ROCKS "enemy list. Unequivocally yes Karl, you are enemy number one! NFTOS can add an additional 100 to this list of lunatic extremist whom are in line to take America to where it once was under the G.W. Bush Regime.

NFTOS says keep the matches from the arsonists! Mr. Rove and the US Chamber of Commerce's Ed Gillespie are in criminal violation of our law by getting foreign money and spending it on American political campaigns, yet Rove states "they have not one shred of evidence to back up that baseless lie". (This is why USCC fought till the death about exposure of "cooked books" or accounting transparency. Which would allow America to validate Karl's whining). If it's required Rove can skirt the law, just like he did when and he and "Dick" Cheney concocted the WMD fairytale.

Let's play Karl' s game and say hypothetically that the left did do as he states. Does this make "two wrongs make a right theory" ok? When dealing with the extremist right its like dealing with the bully on the schoolyard. And there is no bigger bully than Karl Rove in the political arena. NFTOS says to Karl and his "you did it so we can" mentality, pot meet the kettle!

Watching Rove is like being in the reoccurring movie theme of "Groundhog Day". Revamped conservative groups had to be established and designed to balance the supposed well-funded extra-party political infrastructure built by liberals during the Bush years, American Crossroads and a sister group called Crossroads GPS have become major players in the midterm elections, airing millions of dollars' worth of ads boosting Republicans and ripping Democrats. And they figure to become even more active as Election Day approaches, thanks to the whopping $32 million raised in large part by Rove.

The "Tillman Act of 1907 was the first legislation in the United States prohibiting monetary contribution to national political campaigns by corporations. The intent was to quash the ideology of current actions like USCC, American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS.

The legislation as written states;
'"An Act to prohibit corporations from making money contributions in connection with political elections. Be it enacted, That it shall be unlawful for any national bank, or any corporation organized by authority of any laws of Congress, to make a money contribution in connection with any election to any political office. It shall also be unlawful for any corporation whatever to make a money contribution in connection with any election at which Presidential and Vice-Presidential electors or a Representative in Congress is to be voted for or any election by any State legislature of a United States Senator. Every corporation which shall make any contribution in violation of the foregoing provisions shall be subject to a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars, and every officer or director of any corporation who shall consent to any contribution by the corporation in violation of the foregoing provisions shall upon conviction be punished by a fine of not exceeding one thousand and not less than two hundred and fifty dollars, or by imprisonment for a term of not more than one year, or both such fine and imprisonment in the discretion of the court."'

Karl Rove and scandal go hand in hand as on several occasions, Rove has found himself at the center of a publicized scandal, though it should be noted that this has happened far fewer times than one would expect from a person with such dubious morals contempt for even a semblance of ethical behavior at the expense of political capital.

Rove was, more than once, caught having policy meetings with the heads of corporations he owned stock in. These allegations are questionable, however, as they are generally insignificant considering Rove's overall body of work. This would be similar to prosecuting Slobodan Milosevic for writing bad checks.

Additionally, Rove had his hand in every major scandal over the 7 years he worked in the White House.

Having lost out the opportunity to be the primary source for the Valerie Plame leak, Rove had to settle for later confirming classified information. Rove was held in contempt of Congress for failing to testify over the firing of U.S. attorneys. In both cases, Rove was involved enough to commit a crime, but his involvement was convoluted enough for no one to care. This should come as no surprise considering those circumstances defined eight years of policy in the executive branch.

While in the White House, Rove avoided using the official government e-mail servers to send correspondence. This is the first time a skill set invented by porn-aficionados with desk jobs was used to avoid federal indictment.

Rove resigned from the White House in the fall of 2007, though his resignation came voluntarily and not in the shadow of any major federal indictments as many had originally expected. Rove stated he was departing for the "sake of his family," however it should be noted that by "sake of his family" he did not mean that he needed to spend more time with them, but rather that it was financially more beneficial for them if he departed while he could still write a relevant memoir instead of sticking around the sinking ship of the Bush administration.

After working at the White House, Rove was offered and accepted numerous contributing political analysis roles in the media to help fill the time between the congressional subpoenas he was ignoring. It is not known whether the viewing public will enjoy studying this "brain" or merely count the minutes until it is over so they can wash their hands and get the foul smell out.

The aforementioned only shows the perpetual political light dimming on Rove, only after being scolded and steam rolled by his party over the Christine O'Donnell fiasco did Karl un-tape his testicles from his thighs, and yank his tail from between his legs. Often the case is that a pathological liar repeats his offense. Karl is no different!

Maybe someday America will open it's eyes and see this traitor for what he is..............A TRAITOR
