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.

Dana Loesch Proves Ignorance Is Not Bliss

Urintating on dead Taliban not enought for this "lady"
Dana Loesch

UPDATE: 2/18/12 19:39  Virginia Legislature Passes Occupy Vagina Law

UPDATE: 2/18/12 17:36 Despite the nonsense of Loesch Va. personhood bill sparks outrage. I guess Loesch is the only 'female" [sarcastic] to be against Virginia's Government "Overreach"!

Loesch in her infinite wisdom to remain radical and delusional tries to justify Virginia's "forcible rape law" as:
"Furthermore, the greatest number of abortions are obtained by women who already have a child/children, so they know how anatomy and physiology works. A lack of planning on the woman’s part doesn’t constitute a mandate for legalized (and in the case of Planned Parenthood, publicly-funded) murder."
"Cases of rape and incest account for around less than 1% of abortions [bold my emphasis]:"
"The pro-abortion progressive lobby has worked extensively this past week to classify Virginia’s straight-forward law as “rape,” even though the law doesn’t dictate what sort of ultrasound should be used before a woman murders her child. The easiest and most reliable way is the transvaginal ultrasound, more common in the first trimester. Progressives act as though there are no other options available to avoid becoming pregnant, prior to getting pregnant, and that the consequence from their choice prior to sex is the problem."

Inserting something into the vagina of an unwilling woman is a violation in every sense of the word. But not to Dana Loesch. Evidently pissing on the dead Taliban is not enough for this reich- winger [woman] [sarcastic]! Classy lady huh, nothing says class like Loesch!

The ultrasound requirement may evoke images of the abdominal sonograms standard in most pregnancies, fuzzy black and white pictures conjured by a wand passed across a woman's stomach.

But those ultrasounds are ordinarily done fairly late in pregnancy. In the beginning, particularly the first weeks, an abdominal ultrasound may not be sensitive enough to detect anything.

That's why doctors in many cases use a transvaginal ultrasound. In plain speak, they insert a condom-covered probe into a woman's vagina to obtain an image.

In order to satisfy the goals of the legislation - which includes a requirement that a doctor determine the gestational age of the pregnancy- a transvaginal ultrasound may be the only reliable course.

The bill, among the most invasive ever passed in Virginia, is the result of frustration by lawmakers opposed to abortion. Unsuccessful in making abortion illegal and unwilling to be frank about their goals, they have tried by technicality and obfuscation to make it harder for a woman to terminate a pregnancy.

And now this. In addition to the ultrasound, the bill mandates a waiting period of at least 2 hours and as long as a day before a woman can have an abortion. That waiting period has no medical necessity at all - which Loesch fails to mention in her diatribe.

This isn't about whether abortion is right or wrong.

This is about the scope of government. Even those opposed to abortion should have qualms about the government mandating medical procedures and waiting periods.

Under any other circumstances, forcing an unwilling person to submit to a vaginal probing would be a violation beyond imagining. Requiring a doctor to commit such an act, especially when medically unnecessary, and to submit to an arbitrary waiting period, is to demand an abrogation of medical ethics, if not common decency.

Loesch's real intent was to, as always, support the rhetoric of her boss - by spinning her justification to this diabolical bill, she manages to intertwine this bill with occupy rapes:

"If progressives are going to make the case for rape, let’s look at actual cases of rape, such as those which occurred in Occupy."

Staus quo with Loesch, instead of being dazzled with brilliance, we are baffled with bullshit. Why didn't she just continue Breitbart's "Narrative", which is, occupy rape? Why, because the "Narrative" is convoluted with lies and half truths. Lesson's learned Breitbart et al, manipulating videos, and ranting "rape", and "freaks" for a "stunt" is not a way to garner a following or to posture a position!

Hence the "false narrative" by Loesch.

I would suggest to Loesch that she learn the "facts" on abortion and murder! Maybe, had she stayed in college in stead of being a "dropout" -  that she could have been able to discern the difference between the two.

Just for reference Dana:
"Murder" is defined as "illegal killing with malice aforethought." Abortion is NOT illegal in this country and therefore does not fit the definition of 'murder.'

POTUS Disrespect Teapublican Style

Faux News Eric Bolling Style

Nothing says repulsive like Bolling

Aspirin Between Your Knees:

Money is green regardless of whether the person is politically adept.

"On this contraceptive thing, my Gosh it such an inexpensive--You know, back in my day, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn't that costly."

Random thoughts that I posted on my twitter account last night:
"Bayer is now going to expand it's line of aspirin: Regular, Children's and new Bayer Contraceptive Strength."
"Catholic church has banned the use of aspirin as it has been deemed a form of birth control by teapublican ideology."
"The best form of birth control is looking at congressional Republicans discussing birth control." And finally:
"I am guessing Bristol Palin was out of aspirin?"

What Americans - more importantly, what women heard, was evidence that "conservatives" white, pasty, redneck guys, and any Breitbart blogger -  ignorance rooted deep in the previous century, lives strong in the land of this radical group.

All told, if the teapublicans truly want to kiss off women voters -  the party need only keep doing what it's doing.
