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,CNN and Andy 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.

No Rhyme Nor Reason

UPDATED: 1/6/12 15:24 hours

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'” ― Isaac Asimov

Since the mid-term elections not so long ago, I often invoke Asimov's quote, as it resounds with a loud thud when I hear teapublcians speak!

Republican candidates fall all over themselves to kiss the asses of rich people and trash the downtrodden.

Jesus once said that “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” "Well, the tepublicans must want to compensate for this by making rich peoples’ time on Earth as heavenly as possible through a wonderful blend of tax cuts and blatant ass-kissing." 

What would Jesus not do?


 Another passage comes to mind when thinking of the callous teapublican:

"Then the king will say to those good people on his right, 'Come. My Father has given you great blessings. Come and get the kingdom God promised you. That kingdom has been prepared for you since the world was made. You can have this kingdom, because I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was alone and away from home, and you invited me into your home. I was without clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you came to visit me.' "Then the good people will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you food? When did we see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you alone and away from home and invite you into our home? When did we see you without clothes and give you something to wear? When did we see you sick or in prison and care for you?' "Then the king will answer, 'I tell you the truth. Anything you did for one of the least of these my brethren, you also did for me.'"
Two wise Americans are quoted as saying:
"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country."
 ~Thomas Jefferson

 “The truth is that liberty is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than that of their democratic state itself. That, in essence, is Fascism.”
 ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
George Carlin so eloquently depicts the teapublican ideology:


My Mentor....Carlin pegging teapublicans too a "T"
 Now lets look at the "republicans Circa 2012: ("Anatomy of a Teapublican")

Let's take for instance this a$$hat Bill Looman III. Mr. Looman has broken about every law pertaining to title 18, and yet his is still not incarcerated - and yet he still blasts from behind his lectern and pulpit, which is a computer screen via facebook.

Title 18 carries a lot of info that the Bill Looman's of the world may want to look at. Its apparent that the US constitution past number two eludes these radical teapublicans... or any republcian for that fact. No surprise here! Here is your history lesson for the day:

Does Title 18 apply to this asshat?! In a nut shell title 18 says:
TITLE 18—CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE

§ 2383. Rebellion or insurrection

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

§ 2384. Seditious conspiracy

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

§ 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government;

or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so;

or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.


In lieu of the above aforementioned, and after visiting Mr. A$$hats facebook page, we can assume that Looman has violated title 18, multiple times!

Mr. Looman's affiliation with the "Georgia Militia" along with comments on his Facebook pages are enough to demonstrate his true nature as a terrorist.

Mr. Looman's Militia


The North Georgia Militia that Bill Looman founded is a III% group, his Facebook pages are full of III% propaganda and even his Facebook moniker is Bill Looman III%. And then there is this comment on his Facebook page 3 days after the arrests of the Georgia Militia:





Mr. Looman spreads the most outrageous of lies and distortions. He claims to be a patriot, but appears to be trying to start a civil war. He claims to be a Christian, yet he seems to be spreading hate and fomenting violence.

Its apparent that our beloved Mr. Looman didn't get to far from an education standpoint or perspective. Its apparent that Bill has either had held his head to long in the paint thinner jar, or that the best part of him ran down moms leg at birth! Either way, Georgia, the FEDS, or Secret Service need to gather up Bill ASAP!

I have a neighbor here in Gloucester that perspires this same mentality and qualities that Looman does. "Brothers from different mothers" you could say. Mr. Seaford (Neighbor) is from the same mold as Looman, and my one and only conversation in four years with this idiot - some how morphed to politics, which has now turned into the Hatfield's and McCoy's relationship between him and I.
Surprisingly as it may seem, many of these types reside in my wonderful county today!

Anatomy of a teapublican's brain..Love this one!



These types of radical republicans can distort the facts and hate-monger with the best of them, and I am positive you have one of these tools nearest you.

I’ve never seen such anti-American behavior in my life! Mr. Looman is dangerous, and he appears to be having a public meltdown on his Facebook page.

Let's ensure this guy gets the jacket the fits him best. Yes the preverbal straight jacket.

NFTOS' point is this; with our political discourse as high as it is in America today, we certainly need to ensure that those with this teapublican radical mentality - that you get corralled up, so no further "militias" can act on their FUBAR ideologies. Freedom of speech is fine, but when you cross the line of title 18, then it's high time for us to give you that fifteen minutes of fame you seek, and place you where you belong......Jail!

If you're a Reichwing lunatic like Looman, with psychotic delusions, Georgia has a big welcome sign posted just for you. Please go....and stay.... forever. Thanks!

Teapublicans, please remember to breed responsibly. There is no life guard at the gene pool.

I was asked the other day why I am a liberal......If the above is not enough, I tell you -"Because militant fundamentalist xenophobic corporate oligarchy just wasn't working for me."
