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.

Rachel Maddow presents a new possibility of what the induced Ft. Lee traffic jam was retribution for. If it wasn't over the mayor’s gubernatorial endorsement, what was it for? Keep reading as it doesn't have a thing to do with the Mayor of Ft. Lee, New Jersey.

If Christie was telling the truth when he said the mayor of Fort Lee wasn't really on his radar, then perhaps the retaliatory action wasn't aimed at the mayor at all. Maybe it was aimed at someone else.

Bridget Kelly sent the infamous email at 7:34 AM on August 13, 2013 saying it was "time for some traffic problems around Fort Lee." What would have prompted her to send that? What was happening in the middle of August (besides endorsements) that would have given rise to this particular form of political retribution?

New Jersey Supreme Court battles were happening.


It certainly makes more sense than the theory that Christie was getting revenge on the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing him. As Maddow pointed out in the segment, there were quite a few Democrats who didn't endorse Christie and they didn't experience any payback from the governor.

I anxiously await the song bird to start singing......enter Bridget Kelly.
