Best Movies of 2016: The 3rd Annual Groucho Awards


Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...


(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016


2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the Read more

Everything You Need to Know About 2012 RNC – Night 1

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Politics | 4 Comments

Have you seen tons of Facebook posts, Tweets, and news headlines about RNC 2012? Wondering who all these people are that are speaking? Wonder where they’ve been, what office they hold/are running for, and what their potential is on the national stage? Confused as to why people like me treat the Republican National Convention as one of THE GREAT every-four-year events right up there with the Olympics and the World Cup?

Odds are, unlike me, you didn’t block off your Tuesday night to watch PBS’s full, four-hour coverage of the first night of the 2012 Republican National Convention.  Odds are, you don’t read political news all day, every day to learn who the rising stars on the political scene are. So that’s why I’m bringing you everything you need to know about last night’s speeches and speakers at the first night of the Republican National Convention.  Sit back, relax, get your American flag out, and dwell on freedom and opportunity.  Here are the highlights… brought to you by the son of a public school teacher and FedEx employee! (If you watch many convention speeches, you’ll find everyone has to say who their parents are and what they did. If you want more details about mine, ask me about them sometime. They’re pretty great!)

The Ramblings of a Bleeding Heart Conservative

Welcome to a new semi-regular blog post series of mine. I’m not sure where it will go or what all it will discuss, but I do feel as if I should write about what I’m thinking, debating, discussing, wrestling with, and praying about the most.  If I’m blogging about presidential elections, baseball, football, and Survivor, then I should probably also blog about what I profess to be the most important things in my life.

I’m Back… with my own twist of a Mailbag Post!

I know, I know, I know. There aren’t that many of you out there who have been checking the site daily, constantly disappointed in the lack of a new post from me.  The only one’s who have been disappointed are my fellow Wise Guise, who have realized my 2 to 4 posts a week this summer have kept the site flowing with new content daily.  But I’m back, baby! And, as I thought about what to write for my first post back and all that has happened since my last post, I realized there was only one thing to do: MAILBAG POST!

Top Ten People Most Likely to Be Mitt Romney’s VP

My Thoughts on the Veepstakes

Confession: the term “Veepstakes” makes me cringe.  But, alas, I use it nevertheless to describe the Romney campaign’s vetting of potential running mates for Mitt Romney in 2012; the media and punditry’s coverage of the process filled with analysis and predictions; and ultimately Mitt Romney’s decision about who should be the Republican nominee for Vice-President of the United States, one heartbeat away from being leader of the free world.

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Movie Previews, Movies, Politics | Leave a comment


The cast for Lee Daniels’s The Butler, slated to begin production at the end of July (aka now) is astounding: John Cusack as Richard Nixon; Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower; James Marsden as JFK; Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan; Liev Schreiber as Lyndon B. Johnson; Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan; Jesse Williams as Rev. James Larson; Melissa Leo as Mamie Eisenhower; Minka Kelly as Jackie O and the list goes on and on… including Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, Alex Pettyfer, Cuba Gooding Jr., Forest Whitaker, Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, Vanessa Redgrave, and many more.  Today, with the headlines that Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette from True Blood) was cast to play Martin Luther King, Jr., I had to check out what this film was all about. And I couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised.

The Roberts Wager: How the Chief Justice Made the Riskiest Bet in Supreme Court History

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Misc. Posts, Politics | 5 Comments


Well, it happened. As the liberals began to write their “final” obituaries for the honor, integrity, and independence of the highest court in the land and the conservatives began salivating at getting a big judicial victory of their own… as legal scholars (of which everyone was today) and cable news pundits began to wonder about what would happen to an individual-mandate-less ObamaCare bill between now and election day… the Court did what the Supreme Court so often does – surprise every single one of us.

I sit down at the end of a long day, where I read and summarized the entire majority and dissent decisions.  I only skimmed Ginsburg’s ode to limitless government and read summaries of its love of centralized power.  And what’s on my mind? What do I have to offer the blog world that hasn’t already been said by better writers, better thinkers, and ladies and gentlemen who get paid to do this?
