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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Bill Maher asks the Tin Foil Hat Society -  who are constantly complaining about "big government" - that when are they going to show some concern over the militarization of our police forces across the country.

The tin foil hat society isn't freaking out, because in their diluted cognitive dissonance they believe that our increasingly militarized police is "on their side" and is meant to protect them from "threats" which exist mostly in their heads. Their minds are also freighted with more "important" issues like illegal immigration and women's reproductive rights.

Matter- of - fact, that as long as this militarized policing coincides with, or is not counterproductive to their astroturf creators, public demonstrations for the interests of the 1% will be afforded a kind of leniency [Bundy] not found in the police's treatment of liberal demonstrators seeking to address the true problems at the heart of our society.
