Your blogger

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.

With these "Willfully Ignorant Fucksticks" [term used by CNN anchor Bill Weirs], you just can't make this shit up.

Less than 24 hours after authorizing a lawsuit against President Obama for taking executive action, Speaker Boehner yanked the border crisis bill from the floor as House Republicans issued a statement calling for the President to act on his own - and use his executive privilege.

Take a good look at your government at work readers. With 435 voting members in the house at 175k per year per member, that's 76.1 million dollars of waste per year.

Actual numbers on XO [Executive Order] by President. As you can see. Obama has had very few compared to the 13 previous Presidents.

I know a guy who is an artisan pencil sharpener. He contributes more to society than every Republican in Congress. The GOP, embarrassing our country since it inception.

Its time to send these obstructionist packing!

Breaking update: The planned House recess for five weeks has been delayed until tomorrow.
