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.

"Freedom of Speech" - { Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation, or both. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech".

{The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression."}

We at NFTOS would like to get too some real politics, but we feel we have to address the whiny Glenn Beck yet again. Today Beck feeling the heat of the potential loss of 32 million a year is fighting mad. His anger is never more prevalent than today and of late. His enemy is just as mad and fighting back with a vengeance, and unfortunately for the Beckster, it would appear that Soros and Pike are hell bent on wheels to submerge the Beckistan forever.

Beck's theme today was "Freedom of Speech". We at NFTOS are all for it. BUT, understand that this right comes with a plethora of variables! Freedom of speech in the hands of some is as dangerous as a human calling fire in a theater, and a terrorist who has hijacked a flying projectile who's intent is to destroy buildings in America.

With this freedom comes a HUGE caveat, and that caveat is when you speak with derogatory comments, inciting verbiage, and personal attacks, comes anger and backlash.

Regurgitation from last night:

Beck has even compared our government to vampires while instructing his viewers to "drive a stake through the heart of the bloodsuckers" and pretended to poison Speaker Pelosi on television. A few months later, Gregory Giusti was arrested for repeatedly threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- including threatening to destroy her home -- because he was upset over health care reform. The man's mother told a local news station he listens to those with "really radical ideas," adding, "I'd say Fox News or all of those that are really radical."

Yet Beck claimed emphatically today that he is a man of peace. But yet every other sentence spewed from his vocal chords are intended to incite and belittle the left.

"The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious of the rights of man. Every citizen may, accordingly, speak, write, and print with freedom, but shall be responsible for such abuses of this freedom as shall be defined by law. "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers".

For every action there is a reaction. When you repeatedly berate, verbally bash, and mock literally half of your country. (307 million reside in America and in 2008 69 million voted Democrat and 59 million voted republican). It doesn't take Einstein too figure that when you demean 69 million Americans daily that you may just get under the skin of a few.

Beck was complaining (surprise) about "objective reporting" . Yet the very institution that provides him millions struggles with this very concept. Same with "Big Journalism". They host a myriad of bloggers, and yet nary one of these Neanderthals can give you full and concise factual information on their blogs, (that is when they are not copy and pasting every biased word encased into cyberspace via a sister site to Breitbart and company.){sidebar.... Andy blurbs today that he will not interview with NPR until they retract and rehire Juan Williams, whom Fox signed multi year contract immediately after receiving his pink slip from NPR. NFTOS wants to know where is the down turn when the buffoon Breitbart doesn't appear on your show?}

Big Journalism falls into this very category with freedom of speech. Speak your BS, but ensure you know that when you do that you "are responsible for such abuses".

Daily Beck calls me and my party Fascist, Nazis, Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Evil, and Racist. Beck is the best at "baiting" those on the left. And now that he has hooked his bait, and has gained our attention with his "freedom of speech", leaves the bumbling Beckistan a little less than uneasy and ever more angrier.

It's evident from the last video below that "Freedom of Speech" also means blatant misuse of journalistic integrity. Had not John Stewart caught Faux News with the "stretching of the truth" those whom religiously follow Faux would think everything is all status quo. It is! Glenn Beck is the master at manipulating history to suit has "black board" schematics into the "evil empire" that is George Soros.

Conspiracy theory is the backbone of Faux News. NFTOS wonders why Jesse "the body" Ventura is not on the "contributor" list of Faux News. He would certainly be the missing cog, or puzzle piece to the lunacy that is Murdoch TV.

Beck speaking on social justice says "any church promoting "social justice" or "economic justice" merely was using code words for Nazism and communism."

"I beg you look for the words social justice or economic justice on your church Web site," he said. "If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. ... Am I advising people to leave their church? Yes Beck states. All this from a guy whom worships the cult religion titled Mormonism, and its founder Joe Smith Jr.

{ Social justice generally refers to the idea of creating an egalitarian society or institution that is based on the principles of equality and solidarity, that understands and values human rights, and that recognizes the dignity of every human being. Social justice is based on the concepts of human rights and equality and involves a greater degree of economic egalitarianism through progressive taxation, income redistribution, or even property redistribution. These policies aim to achieve what developmental economists refer to as more equality of opportunity than may currently exist in some societies, and to manufacture equality of outcome in cases where incidental inequalities appear in a procedurally just system.},2933,601882,00.html

Beck in PHD like fashion will dissect the "Fabian Window" {Stained Glass picture above} with surgeon like hands, and turn his ideology of this history into the demonic world he claims we are now turning into, this very "freedom of speech" is dangerous at best. {the above link is a transcript from the pulpit of Beck on the Fabian Window Theory"}. If Beck had the following he claims, then the masses would be running hysterically to their nearest fallout shelter after hearing these world ending apocalyptic events.

Freedom of speech - is a beautiful thing and in the right hands can inspire and encourage new thinking. In the wrong hands it can breed bigotry and hatred. But with freedom comes – or should come – responsibility. We all enjoy the right to say or write what we want, and long may it continue. Our concern is there are those who deliberately abuse or distort the right in order to score cheap points against those with a different belief. All this does is cheapen the freedom we have and support those who wish to restrict it.

The above two Beckistan examples are the "caveat" we referred to earlier.

Keep your freedom's tea bagger, but understand like that of the reverend whom protests soldiers funerals, that your speech (garbage) is viewed as just that...........
