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.

The last three days we have blogged about James Yeager, the radical gun hugger saying he would "kill people" if gun laws were invoked. Yeager, is not the only idiot with this "new revolutionary" mentality. I have a life long childhood pal whom is a part of this growing group of conspiracy theorist whom think the US Government is Hitler reincarnated.

As Vice President Joe Biden prepares to offer legislative recommendations to reduce and prevent gun violence on Tuesday, gun advocates across the country fear that the administration may succeed in expanding background checks for all gun purchases or limiting the sale of high capacity magazines and assault weapons.


State-based gun advocacy organizations are vowing to oppose any additional gun safety measures, NBC News reports, and have formed the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban to act as a counterweight to the National Rifle Association (NRA), which, the Coalition claims, is too eager to compromise with gun control advocates.

In an open letter to members of Congress, the Coalition argues that assault weapons are “functionally identical to hunting rifles” and that banning high capacity magazines would be “moot” since “nearly all mass murderers who use guns carry multiple firearms.” “Like the misnomer ‘assault weapon,’ the ‘high capacity’ designation of more than ten rounds for magazines represents nothing more than an arbitrary limit set on devices which have been in common possession since the early Twentieth Century.” The group also claims that attempts to expand background checks for all gun purchases is “nothing less than a stepping stone to national gun registration.”

A separate letter to President Obama from Grass Roots North Carolina (a member of the Coalition), warned the administration against issuing executive orders regulating guns, calling such action an “usurpation of power” and predicting that gun owners will resist any additional safety measures:
And what happens when, inevitably, some resist? Do you honestly believe people will go peacefully into bondage? How many will die as the direct result of your actions?

There is no need to send the Secret Service to my door, Mr. President (although I suspect you might anyway). I am not advocating violence; I am merely saying what others are afraid to.

The real question, Mr. President, is whether you so hunger for power that you are willing to foment what might be the next American Revolution. Will that be your enduring legacy?


With more and more second amendment radicals oozing from the cesspool of ignorance, it's time for the debate to end [as debating the unlettered revolutionary is fruitless]. If "Executive Order" is indeed our path to ensuring that the "James Yeager's of our world are reigned in -so be it. If it's "pack your bag's" time, so be it! The mentality or creed of this brand of troglodytes is; "pry my guns from my cold dead hands". Stupid and ignorance often impedes reality for these "special patriots"!

James Yeager seems confused as to why he is getting death threats. While I do not support them, Yeager would have to be brain dead to think that when he issues a statement that he is going to "kill people", that in return fire, the same would not be said to him - this speaks volumes of Yeager's cognitive thinking process!

The Yeager's of this world need to be sent a message, that your bully tactics, your scare tactics, and your inability to comprehend reality will no longer be tolerated!
