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.

It's a start! The poster boy for gun control, better known as James Yeager, [whom we blogged about yesterday, see blog directly below this one] the lunatic who made a viral YouTube video threatening to 'start killing people' over gun control has had his gun permit suspended by Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security. Now he's a CEO of a gun company without a gun permit. Very apropos if I do say so myself!

In a statement released Friday officials said they had suspended the handgun carry permit of James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response based on "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public".

On Thursday, a video of Yeager angrily claiming he would "start killing people" if President Barack Obama moved forward with gun control measures began to go viral on the internet.


"The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public's safety. Mr. Yeager's comments were irresponsible, dangerous, and deserved our immediate attention. Due to our concern, as well as that of law enforcement, his handgun permit was suspended immediately. We have notified Mr. Yeager about the suspension today via e-mail. He will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail," Commissioner Bill Gibbons said. 

Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, a company that offers training to civilians in weapons and tactical skills, has [supposedly] multiple certifications with several different types of weapons. Officials with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security were explicit and stated emphatically that Yeager was not a Department of Safety and Homeland Security certified instructor, nor is his school department certified.

Let me repeat in case you missed it: Yeager is not a certified instructor for Homeland Security nor is his "school" certified. Maybe a few days spent in Federal Custody [Secret Service] might bring this "patriot" back to reality, but something tells me this Einstein is not well known for his high IQ! Better yet, let the state of Tennessee issue Yeager a "confine and treat" order. I love seeing stupidity punished!

Yeager's resume can be seen here.
