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.

As only this asshole can, Fuckface Von Clownstick [Donald J Trump] used a debunked story about US Gen. John Pershing supposedly executing Muslim prisoners to portray himself as being willing to pursue terrorists more aggressively, MSNBC reported on Friday.

Clownstick cited the story during a speech in Charleston, South Carolina, telling supporters they could “read it in the history books.” In fact, according to the fact-checking site, the story — as he presented it — originated online in 2001.

The real estate magnate said that Pershing ordered the execution of Muslim prisoners in the Philippines.
“He took 50 bullets, and he dipped them in pig’s blood,” Clownstick said. “And he had his men load his rifles and he lined up the 50 people, and they shot 49 of those people. And the 50th person he said ‘You go back to your people and you tell them what happened.’ And for 25 years there wasn’t a problem, OK?”
According to Snopes, the incident is not mentioned in biographies of Pershing. Other accounts of his actions while serving as governor for the country’s Moro Providence depict Pershing as wanting to minimize casualties and only threatening to use the “pig’s blood” punishment.

On Friday, Clownstick also returned to his criticism of water-boarding, which he has described as “minimal, minimal, minimal torture.”
“Can you imagine these people when they sit around at night, eating whatever they’re eating, and talking about the United States that they’re actually worried about waterboarding as being a little bit cruel?” Clownstick said. “And these people chop off heads. These people must think we are the dumbest and the weakest and the stupidest people on Earth.”
