Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – 06/10/15

The Watcher’s Council


I’ve avoided this topic, but since it seems so important, here’s my one comment on the matter.

I could care less what Bruce/Caitlyn chooses to call him or herself, what he/she did or didn’t do to their body, or any personal details whatsoever. I don’t regard it as a matter of courage and could care less about the emotions involved or the motivation.

What does bother me is how much oxygen in the room this is taking up and how quickly it’s become a major media story, eclipsing real issues like the Clinton’s criminally corrupt Foundation scandal, Obama’s secret trade bill, what’s really going on with the president’s executive Amnesty for illegal aliens, the continuing attempts to encroach on our liberties and similar stories.

Jenner is estimated to make as much as $500 million from reality TV, book deals, interviews and the usual nonsense. It bothers me that as a nation, this is that important.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday morning.

Council News:

My latest is up at the Times Of Israel, Jew Hatred, Cellphones And Boycotts.

This week, Doug Ross, Michael Haltman and Seraphic Secret earned honorable mention status with some great articles.

You can, too! Want to see your work appear on the Watcher’s Council homepage in our weekly contest listing? Didn’t get nominated by a Council member? No worries.

To bring something to my attention, simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title and a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address (mandatory, but of course it won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6 PM PST in order to be considered for our honorable mention category. Then return the favor by creating a post on your site linking to the Watcher’s Council contest for the week when it comes out on Wednesday morning.

Simple, no?

It’s a great way of exposing your best work to Watcher’s Council readers and Council members while grabbing the increased traffic and notoriety. And how good is that, eh?

So, let’s see what we have for you this week…
