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.

UN-TETHERED FROM REALITY

IS THIS WEBSITE DOWN OR IT JUST ME?

Jon Stewart took on the Obamacare fight Monday night, and while he did go after the “fucking nuts” conservatives, Stewart did have some choice words for the White House for all the bugs on the Obamacare website, even after three years of working on it.

Stewart brought up the “galaxy-destroying force known as Obamacare” and how despite the supposed tech-savviness of the Obama administration, the website isn't exactly working well.

Obamacare 'Incompetence,'Fucking Nuts



Regarding website errors - One might suggest - that even with our small media group, that certain topics generate high volume hits to out website, which has rendered it to not function at times, but to continue with this pathological diabolical scheme, to not know the facts, to skew facts, and to then attempt to crash not only our country, but the global market as well, for ideological outdated failed measures of the GOTP- is a group who finds themselves "un-tethered from reality".

The GOTP has long been un-tethered from the anchor of reality - ever flowing on a tide of bile. These domestic terrorists are prepared to swallow anything that echoes their prejudices, no matter how bloviated with ignorance their ideals are. They are the Fifth Column emitting ignorance of gloom and doom at every corner.

Many conservatives seem to live in an alternative universe, consuming content from only bullshit mountain, [Fox News] the news outlet that tells them only what they want to hear, ir-regaurdless of facts or truth. This meets the classic definition of tinfoil hat society, where everything not of their kind is slanted in their world view. Facts don't matter, data and science are rendered irrelevant and fear mongering is a daily activity for these "special patriots".

The American Taliban needs to accept the fact that America has changed in both the mix of its citizenry and the values of those citizens, and it is not changing back. Every generation brings a different perspective to the table and the beliefs of modern Americans are vastly different from those of Americans two generations ago, yet that is the era that the tinfoil hat society is still mired in.

Species become extinct when they are unable to adapt to an ever changing environment, and that is pretty much what is happening with the GOTP. If this radical party continues to stubbornly refuse to adapt to these changing times, especially as it relates to upholding the most basic principles of democracy - equality, then their days are numbered, and their prospects are dim.

Government shutdown. A GOTP timeline: 
Oct 2008: "You'll never get elected and pass healthcare."
Nov 2008: "We'll never let you pass healthcare."
Jan 2009: "We're gonna shut you down every time you try to pass healthcare."
July 2009: "We'll fight to death every attempt you make to pass healthcare."
Dec 2009: "We will destroy you if you even consider passing healthcare."
March 2010: "We can't believe you just passed healthcare."
April 2010: "We are going to overturn healthcare."
Sept 2010: "We are going to repeal healthcare."
Jan 2011: "We are going to destroy healthcare."
Feb 2012: "We're gonna elect a candidate who'll revoke healthcare NOW."
June 2012: "We'll go to the Supreme Court, and they will overturn healthcare."
June 2012: "We can't believe the Supreme Court just upheld healthcare."
Aug 2012: "American people will never re-elect you-they don't want healthcare."
Oct 2012: "We can't wait to win the election and explode healthcare."
Nov 2012: "We can't believe you got re-elected & we can't repeal healthcare."
Feb 2013: "We're still going to vote to obliterate healthcare."
July 2013: "We're going to vote like 35 more times to erase healthcare."
Sept 2013: "We are going to leverage a government shutdown into
defunding, destroying, obliterating, overturning, repealing,
dismantling, erasing and ripping apart healthcare."
Oct 2013: "WHY AREN'T YOU NEGOTIATING???"

Breaking the debt limit may cost millions of Americans to lose their jobs and cause economic disaster world wide, but we can't say for sure because no one has ever been dumb enough to attempt it.

Dear SEAL Team 6 and Delta Force Units,

I'm being held hostage by radical GOP extremist and fundamentalists who are trying to destroy my Government and Economy. Send help! 
Signed, 
America
