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.

GOP candidate Donald Trump may keep his cabinet “all in the family,” so to speak, with his son Eric Trump vouching for sister Ivanka as vice president on Thursday, according to Politico.

The Trump scion appeared on Thursday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” telling host Steve Doocy, “She’s got the beautiful looks, right? She’s got — she’s smart, she’s smart, smart, smart. … She’s certainly got my vote.”

NOTE: Donald Trump has been mocked severely for raving about his daughter’s beauty and even saying he would date her if they weren’t related.
Doocy wanted to know if Ivanka Trump would be 35 years in age, the cut-off to legally serve as vice president.
“She’ll just be 35,” Eric Trump responded, and said her 35th birthday is Oct. 30, “so she’d just makes that by about by, you know, seven, eight days.”

Host Ainsley Earhardt said Ivanka Trump has the “business sense” for the position, to which her brother responded, “She’s amazing.

The younger Trump also responded to criticism that his father is anti-Semitic after a storm of controversy erupted over the weekend surrounding his tweet that showed a Star of David with a backdrop of $100 bills, calling his rival Hillary Clinton corrupt.
“You know, it’s interesting. My sister is Jewish,” Trump said. Ivanka converted to Judaism for her marriage to Jared Kushner. “My brother-in-law is Jewish. We hire more Jewish people in our organization than anybody. I mean, half of our organization is Jewish. I hear these claims, and it is so ridiculous, and it is really the worst part of politics.”
