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.

If you’re a moderate, liberal or independent you need to tune in and listen closely to what the right is saying – especially the Trump voter. It’s time to unite against the elephant menace.

By now we all know the hallmarks of Trumpenstein’s platform. All feel good ideas to the 35% of the righty who wants to make America great - like it was when women stayed in the kitchen, immigrants were the cheap help that came over the border to pick our fields and didn't stay, and government was small. You know, 1950.

Trump’s boarder wall makes me laugh. The problem is walls mean nothing to the motivated criminals, especially the drug cartels. These are the same guys that started using submarines when the Coast Guard amped-up their surveillance of the seas. Listen to what the Marines have to say about walls.

What pisses me off most is the utter contempt they have toward those that disagree. According to them we’re weak, racists against whitey, that we hate the military, that we don’t love our country like they do. Donald himself called us "pussies". "They want their country back!"

Well friend, we won the election. The Presidency is ours. Oh and we’re going to win this one too, albeit only if you get out and vote – take your neighbor, grandma, Uncle Joe. Make sure your college student is registered and has an absentee ballot.

I don’t plan on giving this country back to these tribal idiots anytime soon. It’s store policy – no returns.
