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.

Just a few days earlier, Lindsey Graham made the ridiculous assertion that ISIS was coming to "the Homeland" - and now out comes Peter King beating the same drum. Once again the GOP'ers are all working the same memo - creating a meme for the ilk of the Fox news viewers - and its a sure thing they will soon buy it.

Is it just me or is that "homeland" thing a bit creepy? It comes across as Soviet'esqe or like something you would here in Germany in 1936. Why can't ISIS just come to America?
