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.

In by far one of the best speeches to come out of the 2016 DNC conventions - was the one from a father of a US soldier, who just happens to be Muslim.

From the Muslim ban to his open embrace of racial profiling, fear-mongering about Muslims has been a centerpiece of Fuckface Von Clownstick’s campaign. It’s his mantra. But during the last night of the Democratic National Convention, the father of a Muslim U.S. Army Captain who died in Iraq while trying to protect his men during an attack reminded Cheeto Jesus about some relevant passages from the Constitution.


“We are honored to stand here as the parents of Captain Humayun Khan and as patriotic American Muslims with undivided loyalty to our country,” Khizr Khan, father of Humayun, said.

Onstage with his wife, Khan asked whether Trump has “even read the United States Constitution.”
“I will gladly lend you my copy,” Khan said, pulling a pocket-size constitution from his jacket. “In the document, look for the words ‘liberty’ and ‘equal protection of law.'”

Khan also said that Orange Hitler has “sacrificed nothing and no one” and suggested he take a trip to Arlington Cemetery to see how people of “all faiths, genders and ethnicities” have “died defending the United States of America.”
“We cannot solve our problems by building walls, sowing division. We are stronger together,” Khan said.
Meanwhile, in Iowa, Trump lamented that the United States government no longer waterboards people and talked about how he wants to “hit” speakers who were critical of him at the DNC convention.

Many verbally destroyed Clownstick, but Khan slayed him like no other this week, hitting the idiot fast and furious with a barrage of facts, even offering Clownstick his own copy of the US constitution.

Apparently with Cheeto Jesus wanting to hit those whom verbally blasted him, its self evident that the carnival barker can dish it out but can’t take his own dose of medicine of not being so politically correct when it comes to speaking about others.

Fact is, Trump is way out of his element, not that he was ever in it, but the fact that so many have pointed to the sheer ignorance of this asshat, which exists on so many levels – proves that this con man is not only an embarrassment to his country, but to the human race as well.
