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 NRA's Rise to Power: From a training organization to a fear mongering lobbying group.

In yet another example of self-righteous people living by a different set of rules - the NRA just doesn't get it, and is not backing down with it's bully tactics.

The NRA describes itself as a civil rights group. It is anything but. While it's intent may have started out that way, they are a far cry from gun safety today. Today the NRA is nothing but a shill for weapons manufacturers. According to an April 2011 report by the Violence Policy Center:
.....since 2005 contributions from gun industry corporate partners to the NRA total between $14.7 million and $38.9 million. The vast majority of funds – 74 percent – contributed to the NRA from corporate partners come from members of the firearms industry....... companies involved in the manufacture or sale of firearms or shooting-related products.


Understand readers, this association is not your dads hunting safety group anymore, these are a gutless, spineless, despicable form of shit that oozes from our society! These parasites delve into the ignorance of the gun hugger. They prod them with hints of Hitler-esk gun control , knocking on doors and confiscating weapons, and causing anarchy wherever they can.

It's time to meet these bullies head on, time to draw the line in the sand with these special patriots. The first thing to do would be to teach them what the second amendment says. The NRA ad attack on POTUS tells us one thing; that nothing is beyond the pale of these gun hugging enthusiasts.
"No single law - or even set of laws - can prevent every act of violence in our country. But the fact that this problem is complex can not be and excuse for inaction." ~ POTUS
