Watcher’s Council Nominations – #Hash Tag Edition

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.

The Council In Action!



This weekThe MidKnight ReviewLe·gal In·sur·rec·tionThe Pirate’s Cove and The Mellow Jihadiearned 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.

Simply head over to Joshuapundit and post the title a link to the piece you want considered along with an e-mail address ( which won’t be published) in the comments section no later than Monday 6PM 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 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?

*A note on this week’s selections – due to problems with their host server, The Colossus of Rhodeywas unable to submit this week, and Rhymes with Right was only able to do so by the lucky chance of finding a separate site that had cut and pasted one of his articles. We regret the omission and look forward to their return next week, as I’m sure all our readers do.

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

One thought on “Watcher’s Council Nominations – #Hash Tag Edition

  1. Deb, the only problem with the #hashtag line is. . . . .you know who is going to get credit for it despite having been started back on 23 April. . . . . .Moochell.

    Seems to me though it’s the logical progression of our Foreign Policy with this idiot in charge, we’ve gone from:

    A European apology tour, then a domestic one denouncing American Exceptionalism.
    To a surrender at all cost and raise the White Flag tour. {a favorite dopey lib tactic they’ve used for ever}
    To a “if we only be nice to our enemies and ignore what they are doing tour”.
    Let’s roll out the “red carpet” {to muslim Bros} at the White House tour {as long as they aren’t school kids tour}.
    Let’s abandoned our allies in Northern Africa. What could possibly happen, after all tour?
    The “Right to Defend” tour in Lybia worked out so well.
    The Leading from Behind tour.
    #hashtag tour.

    As always feel free to . . . . revise, edit, recycle and reuse as necessary. The smartest thing he’s done so far {that we know of} is not send in Special Forces like Lil Johnny McLame is calling for. If that happens and just one of those kids get hurt {let alone killed} we all can figure out who is going to be held responsible for that. Then we can all start the “Reinsert the American Troops Tour”.

    Turns out Hillary wasn’t the only one blocking for Boko Haram and Threatening the Nigerian government.

    Obama Administration Threatened Nigeria with Sanctions in 2013 for Fighting Boko Haram

    Another Blue State, obama/clinton success story in the making.
