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.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa sought to silence the ranking Democrat on the Committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings, during a hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s improper targeting of groups applying for tax-exempt status.

On Wednesday, after former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked her Fifth Amendment rights against self incrimination, Issa quickly moved to adjourn the session, saying he could “see no point in going further.” But as Cummings began to ask a procedural question about the issue, the Chairman tried to cut his mic, leaving Cummings to shout from his seat.


I am a member of the Congress of the United States of America! I am tired of this,” he said, adding that after spending at least $14 million, the Committee has uncovered “no evidence to support allegations of a political conspiracy against conservative groups.”

After walking out, Issa defended his actions to reporters, saying that Cummings intended to “make a speech.” “He was talking into a mic in an adjourned meeting,” Issa said. “He was actually slandering me at the moment that the mics did go off by claiming that this had not been a real investigation.”

I applaud Rep Elijah Cummings for doing what most won't, and that's go toe-to-toe with radical teabaggers like Darrell Issa.

Darrell Issa is yet another GOP example of what we call the "Ted Nugent Maxim": The louder the snarl, the wider the yellow stripe of cowardice".

Congratulations Darrell Issa, you are todays' asshat of the day, and worlds worst person!

In other news, the tin foil hat society hits a milestone, as they yet again - voted for the 50th time to repeal "Obamacare". Seriously readers, if you keep voting for this shit may you live eternity in the misery you create.
