Watcher’s Council nominations for December 2, 2015

We at the Watcher’s Council submitted our nominations on December 1, 2015, before the shooting started in San Bernardino. I suspect the posts would have been different if we’d submitted nominations the day after. Be that as it may, the nominations provide a broad and useful snapshot of the world at large allowing us to understand better how yesterday’s jihad could have come about.  Also, be sure to check out the Thanksgiving forum.

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:

Check out Debra Heine of Nice Deb’s excellent article on PJ Media, Ted Cruz: ‘The Overwhelming Majority of Violent Criminals Are Democrats.’

This week, Overlawyered, Creeping Sharia, Simply Jews and Seraphic Secretearned 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 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 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….
