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.

Listening to The Donald in the closing days of the NY primary makes me wonder if the Trump voter has any grey matter upstairs. For months we’ve listened to Trump claim Lyin’ Ted Cruz has been stealing votes. In his latest rant, DT is complaining that the system is rigged, that Cruz is buying delegates with lavish gifts. Gee Donald, aren’t you supposed to be the master of the deal? How are you getting beaten at your own game?

It should be no surprise how the system works. If you’re getting into the game, you should know the rules. So either Trump has proved to us that he’s incompetent and really doesn’t know how to run a business because all the “smart people” he hires can’t figure out how to win this simple game or he’s unwilling to invest in the game and secure his votes by out spending Cruz. If he’s afraid to invest in his own success why should we invest in him making America great again? Just compare Trump’s spending to Cruz or Hillary’s.

Let’s face it - Trump’s cheap. He is not interested in spending what it takes to win. So what does that tell us about how he’d run the country? He’s embarrassed himself multiple times of late. Just read what happened in Wisconsin a few weeks ago!

So now we get to see exactly how he’s run the nation – just like his multiple failed businesses. He’s no master of the deal. He’s just a big cry baby who rode the real estate bubble to success.
