Watchers Council results: "Is that the "sweet" smell of Egyptian "Arab Spring" redux?" Edition!

Muslim Brotherhood in Tahrir Square
The crowds are back and protesting in Tahrir Square reminiscent of the "Arab Spring"! 

However this time unlike the charade of democracy on the horizon for the people of Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood is massing in protest over the potential that the military will nullify the elections and hijack control of the government.

The silence that you hear from the White House on these developing events in Cairo stands in sharp contrast to the original vitriol from President Obama that Mubarak step down in order to serve the will of the people and allow democracy to take root.

Quick review! It now appears that we are witnessing another huge foreign policy failure from the Obama administration that will most likely go widely unreported by the mainstream media.

There is no democracy for the people of Egypt as most knew would be the ultimate result there in the first place.

Also it appears that the fair and open election process that would have brought the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood to power will be superseded by the military assuming control.

This would be the same military that ran the government along with Hosni Mubarak. The same Hosni Mubarak that the Obama administration insisted must step down.

Is this what is called the social and political circle of life? Possibly only this time the circle could deteriorate into violence, killing in the streets and after that...

Now on to the Watchers Council voting results!

The Watchers Council nominations for the week of June 19th were presented, the votes were cast and counted, and the winner will now been announced!

For those who may be enjoying their first Watchers Council experience, it is a group that consists of some of the top conservative bloggers from around the world.

A group that The Political Commentator is extremely proud to have been asked to be part of!

Each week members select and submit an article of their own creation in addition to one article from a non-council blog they find to be particularly topical and important.

While you may not always agree with what you read, that alone may make the experience that much more valuable!

Once the submissions have been received at an undisclosed location hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members then individually vote for their favorites.

Those votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner named for the Grand Prize.

This Grand Prize consists of the appreciation of ones peers.

In the end though, we all win because of the range of information and important analysis received on the critical issues of the day.

In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!

So without further ado the winner(s) of the Watcher's Council for the week of June 19th is (are)...?
