Our Watcher’s Council Nominations: Climbing The Wall Edition


Meet Gabe Hill – 19 Year Old Candidate for GOP National Delegate From Henrico County (VA-7)


Status Quo Crowd getting desperate?

By Bob Shannon Central Garage Having attended the majority of the Board of Supervisor meetings the last 8 years, I can’t say until Land Use Exemption Programs came under threat, and the tax shifting game was exposed, do I even recall Mr. Mills attending these...


By Ron Hedlund My name is Ron Hedlund. I am a lifelong Republican and former GOP unit chairman from Alleghany County. I am supporting Vince Haley for RPV Chairman because the state party apparatus is broken and out of control due to Interim Chairman, John Whitbeck’s...

I’ll Never Say “Never Trump” by Waverly Woods

Houston, “we have an umpire problem,” all right. It’s from top to bottom and everywhere in between. By Waverly Woods Even though I am a Cruz supporter and candidate for delegate to the RNC Convention in Ohio, I would support Donald Trump if he should become our...

How Trump, Cruz and Rubio could UNITE the GOP

This is such an interesting idea that I had to get it out to the blog. The Republicans must unite to defeat Secretary Hillary Clinton and unless they want to do something bold at an open convention like nominate former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, they better...

Original Music: The Girl With the 5 O’clock Shadow

If you had told me not too long ago that we would reach the point in America where a president would order that mentally ill people who fancied themselves to be members of the opposite sex would not only have this delusional fantasy “accommodated” but by...

The Council Has Spoken!! Our Watcher’s Council Results

The Council Has Spoken!! Our Watcher’s Council Results

The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

“The political machine triumphs because it is a united minority acting against a divided majority.” – Will Durant

“Anything may happen when womanhood has ceased to be a protected occupation.” – Virginia Woolf

“Disguise, I see thou art a wickedness,/ Wherein the…enemy does much.” – William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

This week’s winning essay,Bookworm Room’s The broken windows theory of public bathrooms and gender identity Is her look at the realities of the controversy over transgenders using women’s bathrooms. Here’s a slice:

The social justice warriors have been busy on my “real-me” Facebook page, ridiculing the concerns of ordinary Americans who cannot understand why, out of the blue, they are suddenly being told that gender isn’t a biological reality but is, instead, a mere social construct that a person can socially reconstruct on a daily basis — and, moreover, that this sudden gender fluidity means that it’s an act of gross discrimination to contend that public bathrooms should be limited to reflect a person’s basic biology (i.e., penis or no penis).

Despite disagreeing strongly with the whole “gender fluidity” claim, even I must admit that the social justice warriors have come up with what I consider are two good arguments to support their case. Conceding that these arguments have some validity, though, does not erase the fact that the SJWs are still completely wrong to demand that America abandon long-standing laws and practices respecting gender differences.

The first valid argument is that true transgender women (by which I mean people who completely identify as women but who are biologically men) are almost never violent towards others:

Transgender safety in bathrooms
The second argument is that these true transgender women, the ones who dress and act like women, often to the point of being indistinguishable from women, are already using women’s restrooms and have been doing so forever, without anyone being the wiser:
Sharing bathrooms
I’ll add one more argument: Long before the bathroom wars heated up and women suddenly got concerned about men in their bathrooms and locker rooms, sexual perverts have been trolling women’s bathrooms:

So, if true transgenders aren’t violent, if this bathroom sharing has been existing sub rosa forever, and if perverts have been using women’s bathrooms long before transgender rights became an issue, why do I still believe that it’s important that we continue our current biologically-based gender segregation in bathrooms and changing rooms? It’s important because of what I think of as the “broken windows” theory of public bathrooms.

In our non-Council category, the winner was Terra IncognitaEndemic Hatred of Jews submitted by Bookworm Room . Seth Franzman does a fine job here in exploring that age-old subject ‘Why the Jews?’

Here are this week’s full results. Only Fausta and The Daley Gator were unable to vote,but neither was subject to the usual 2/3 penalty for not voting. One of the Victor Davis Hanson pieces was submitted by two members under different titles (which yours truly didn’t catch). So I combined those votes:

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – Trumped Edition

Our Watcher’s Council Nominations – Trumped 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.

Council News:

This week we were sad indeed to say goodbye to long time Council member Brent Parrish at The Right Planet.

Brent is taking a hiatus from blogging to concentrate on family and business concerns, and all of us wish him the best. And of course, as a plugged in member of the WoW community, we’ll look forward to hearing from from him in the future in our Forum,our inter-Council threads and perhaps, even an article as a non-council submission if he gets the bug to write again, which we certainly hope he will.

This means we currently have a vacancy on the Watcher’s Council, the oldest and most established blogging group in the ‘sphere. Any talented, interested parties should contact me directly by leaving a comment on any story on JoshuaPundit including your name, site name and e-mail info as well as anything else you wish to include. Needless to say,it won’t be published but I will respond promptly to your inquiry and tell you what’s involved.

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

Trump and Cruz Supporters – Moving Past a Bitter Primary

Yes, I am happy that my candidate won. I am just as glad it is over. The stress that this contest placed on friends that are on the same team has been tremendous. And I am empathetic with my friends that had their hopes and dreams dashed last night with the...
