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,CNN and Andy 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.

PISSED OFF POTUS, SHAME ON YOU SENATE


NRA WINS OUT WITH COWARD-LESS SENATORS


THE VOTE




President Obama tore Congress a news posterior for voting down a background check amendment that the overwhelming majority of Americans support [90% of Americans support background checks]. Speaking at the White House Rose Garden as the Newtown families and former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords looked on, Obama stressed that he would continue to advocate for the measure, which fell four votes short of the 60-vote threshold:
“I’m going to speak plainly and honestly about what’s happened here because the American people are trying to figure out how can something have 90 percent support and yet not happen.”

“This legislation, in fact, outlawed any registry. Plain and simple, right there in the text. But that didn’t matter. And unfortunately, this pattern of spreading untruths about this legislation served a purpose, because those lies upset an intense minority of gun owners, and that in turn intimidated a lot of senators.”

“But the fact is most of these senators could not offer any good reason why we wouldn’t want to make it harder for criminals and those with severe mental illnesses to buy a gun… It came down to politics — the worry that that vocal minority of gun owners would come after them in future elections.”

“ I've heard some say that blocking this step would be a victory. And my question is, a victory for who? A victory for what? … It begs the question, who are we here to represent?”

“ I've heard folks say that having the families of victims lobby for this legislation was somehow misplaced. ‘A prop,’ somebody called them. ‘Emotional blackmail,’ some outlet said. Are they serious? Do we really think that thousands of families whose lives have been shattered by gun violence don’t have a right to weigh in on this issue? Do we think their emotions, their loss is not relevant to this debate?

“So all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for Washington.”

“You need to let your representatives in Congress know that you are disappointed, and that if they don’t act this time, you will remember come election time.”

Here
are the Senators who stood up for background checks, and here's who capitulated to the NRA.

Remember the coward-less douche-bags [in the right column of photo above] when it comes to the upcoming mid-terms elections. [It should be noted that majority leader Harry Reid's "nay" vote was a "procedural" process that was adhered to]. It's time to hold our law makers accountable, to ensure that they have our voice at the forefront, not the voice of slimy nasty beast that is the NRA!

Let it be clear readers, this denial of fundamental democracy - namely the voices of the American people themselves - by virtue of the American Taliban filibuster, should give pause to everyone, whether they were in favor of the background check initiative, or not. If a 90% plurality cannot effect changes in the law, then we have to concede that we are no longer living in a democracy.
