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.

Unless you have been living under a rock the last five days, you have to be cognizant of the deplorable actions that have been conducted under Ferguson Missouri's police - abd their invoked martial law.


Why was the Bundy ranch incident not treated in this manner, you know when white "militias" threatened to kill federal agents? I cannot recollect ever seeing any police-state, never seeing tear gas shot at assemblers, nor rubber bullets shot at them.

Tea baggers, Guns Over People, Gun Huggers scream bloody murder daily about the only right they know of - the right to tote a gun - yet last night, rights violations where a plethora:

Freedom to assemble Denied
Freedom of speech, Denied and;
Freedom of press Denied

Seriously readers, is there even a tiny segment of the population that feels that these police are doing good work here?


The good news is, I now can tell my grand children that I experienced the 1950's without actually living during the time.

Questions, why is the governor sleeping at the wheel, and if he doesn't act, why doesn't the local council enact a curfew instead of a police state - we are gassing humans, beating up and arresting the press, and shooting rubber bullets?

Bill Maher Police State


I've been saying for years, arm the cops with body cameras and microphones:

Its time now to stop the freaking charade. Its time to hold police accountable, no matter what the price! 


Anonymous, a loosely organized global network of activists and hackers, has a history of targeting large corporations and governments in the wake of what it deems injustice. Its targets have included everyone from companies such as VISA, MasterCard and PayPal after they prohibited donations to WikiLeaks to the Israeli government in retaliation for its military intervention in Gaza. Amid this week’s mayhem in Ferguson, a group claiming to be associated with Anonymous set up a Web site to organize cyber protests as well as a Twitter account. It released a video and put out a press release, in part addressing police:


Another witness has emerged in the shooting of Michael Brown:

Mitchell told News 4 she saw a door close on a police car. An officer was inside and Brown, Jr. was on the outside. She said the two were arm wrestling through the car window. Mitchell said she then tried to pull out her phone to record. Shots then rang out.
“It just didn't look right for them to be arm wrestling,” Mitchell said. “The first gun shot came from the window, so I just started getting out of the way.”
According to Mitchell, Brown, Jr, began to run away after the first shot was fired.
“After the shot, the kid just breaks away. The cop follows him, kept shooting, the kid’s body jerked as if he was hit. After his body jerked he turns around, puts his hands up, and the cop continues to walk up on him and continues to shoot until he goes all the way down,” Mitchell said.

Tiffany Mitchell tells KMOV what she saw:

Your "PROTIP" for the day readers: That tear gas is banned by the Geneva Convention. But yet we subject our own citizens to something that was deemed wrong after the Nazi regime. What the fuck are we becoming as a country, would it be that we are indeed becoming a "Police-State"?

Let's be kind to each other people, I get it, your angry, I am as well. Do this the right way, so we, those on the other-side of this police state, come out on top of this issue.
