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.

For the second time in two days, Al Sharpton battled a conservative on Obamacare and the threat of a government shutdown. Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer argued that Democrats are the ones who want to shut the government down, but Sharpton didn’t buy it, saying at some point, conservatives need to accept Obamacare is the law of the land and stop trying to take it down.

Watch the video below, via MSNBC:

Kremer argued that even Democrats have said the health care law is “not ready for primetime,” so the goal right now is just to delay. Sharpton went through all the steps of the law being upheld, from Congress approving it to the Supreme Court upholding it to Mitt Romney losing on a platform of repealing it, concluding, “You lost, it’s the law!”

Kremer shot back that Democrats used a “parliamentary trick” to pass it in the first place, while Sharpton brought up all the Republicans who are starting to sour on the defunding idea. Kremer was a lot more bullish, saying the very fact House leadership brought it to the floor is a victory, and citing several red-state Senate Democrats she believes might end up joining the GOP.

Towards the end of the debate, Sharpton pressed Kremer to say that if the Senate rejects the House bill, Congress can go ahead and fund the government without the Obamacare defunding provision. Kremer hedged, insisting the Republicans have no interest in shutting down the government.

Kremer is your A-typical "low-info" voter who found her calling when a non-White president was elected. Kremer is the original "Teabircher", incoherent, hysterical and low on facts. Amy Kremer is living in an alternate reality if she really thinks that a government Shutdown won't have a catastrophic outcome not only in this country, but the global economy as well.


Republicans' concern about the problems implementing Obamacare is touching but yet utterly disingenuous all in the same breath.

The synopsis of listening to the tin foil hat society: "We will decide what laws are actually laws!"

The bottom line here is - There is no lead in "pencil lead", there are no grapes and no nuts in "grape nuts", ... and there is nothing patriotic about a "tea party patriot". There is no doubt in this bloggers mind- clear evidence that Teabircher's wear the pants in the conservative family.
