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.

Louie Gohmert, who is possibly the most stupid person to ever hold an office in U.S. government -awkwardly invoked the Old Testament in order to condemn Planned Parenthood during a House Judiciary Committee meeting on Wednesday.
“[I] was reading about a woman that came complaining to the Prophet. She was in a city that was under siege. And she complained that another woman had talked her into a deal where the first time, they would boil her little baby and eat the child,” he said. “And then after that, they would boil the second woman’s child and eat that child. Well, let’s face it: this hearing we’ve heard over and over, ‘If it’s to save lives, it’s OK.’ I could not believe how reprehensible that was, how immoral.”
The Tea Party lawmaker was apparently referring to 2 Kings 6:29, which states that “So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son.”

The meeting was called following the release of a series of videos by an anti-abortion group, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) claiming that it showed Planned Parenthood officials saying they made a profit off of fetal tissue donations. The agency was not represented in the list of identified speakers during the hearing.

Gohmert did not mention that the CMP videos were quickly debunked following their release. He also neglected to mention that both the federal Health and Human Services Department and investigators in five states have determined that Planned Parenthood did not violate any regulations in separate investigations.

Congrats Louie, you are today’s most stupid human of the week. Enjoy numbnuts!
