The Watcher's Council is the world's preeminent conservative blog aggregator!
This weeks results are dedicated to the oft-mentioned idea that with the election of Barack Obama the United States would be entering a new societal phase termed the post racial America.
One glance at the coverage of the George Zimmerman trial, however, along with reports that the Obama DOJ helped to organize anti-Zimmerman demonstrations, is enough to prove that at least in the media and in Obama's Washington race is still a big deal and political wedge issue.
That said, the results for the week of July 8, 2013 Watcher's Council Blog of the Week Competition have just been released with first place awarded to Joshuapundit for an article that examines the the real story behind the coup in Egypt!
For the record The Political Commentator tied for second with an article that provides some of the many drawbacks that surround the soon-to-be implemented I-Stop controlled substance prescription law in New York State.
The link to both articles, along with links to 22 of the other must-read articles from some of the worlds top conservative minds, can be found below.

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 that they have written 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 fact alone may make the experience much more valuable!
Once all of the nominated articles have been received at an undisclosed location by the Council leader, a location that is well hidden somewhere on the Left Coast of the United States, the Watchers Council members review and vote for their favorite entries.
These votes are protected and held by outside auditing firm Arthur Andersen until such time as they are counted and a winner has been chosen for the Grand Prize.
This Grand Prize which consists of the appreciation of ones peers.
In the end, however, we are all winners for having had the opportunity to read the analysis of the critical issues of the day.
In a nutshell, the Watchers Council is the ultimate conservative blog aggregator!
