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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Samantha Bee slammed conservative lawmakers on Monday night for going to any length to block the Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.
“Why are you cockblocking this gentle law Hobbit?” she demanded to know.
Bee rejected the rationale from “half-melted Reagan dummy from Madame Tussaud’s wax museum” Ted Cruz and other Republicans that President Barack Obama should leave the high court with a vacancy because he is a “lame duck.”
“Jesus Christ, he’s not a lame duck,” Bee said. “He’s three trimesters away from lame duckery. A president’s term is four years; you can’t say three of them are legitimate and the fourth is garbage. They’re not Indiana Jones movies.”


Instead, she said, they are holding out for their right to see either Hillary Clinton appoint “a transgender Black Panther abortion doctor” or Donald Trump nominate “a pile of Maxim magazines.”
