Your blogger

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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J.

Independence Day is often a time for fireworks, barbecues and family as we celebrate the founding of the United States. But beyond the celebrations, this holiday should serve as a reminder to all of us that these privileges are not easily earned. For 236 years we have enjoyed the freedoms won by our nation’s founders and preserved by generations of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen.

From Eugene Oregon to Gloucester Virginia, to military installations in Afghanistan and locations around the world, I want to thank each of you for your extraordinary efforts and your commitment to enabling our freedom via you're critical missions.

You ROCK US Armed Services!

Have a happy and safe Independence Day from NFTOS

Roger West
