Gas Station Civil Disobedience

By: Diane Benjamin I hope you aren’t excited by the “plummeting” cost of gas – that is how one local media described the price trend. Plummeting would be back to $3.00 or less as it was before WAR was declared on fossil fuels. Unaffordable everything is a direct result of that war, the poor and […]

Pics taken Sunday

By: Diane Benjamin Electricity and gas bills are going to increase because of the War on Fossil Fuels called Climate Change. The war is really to prove capitalism doesn’t work, the far left hates the voluntary exchange of goods and services. Big government wants to control your life, not let you decide how to live […]

Expect painful bills

By: Diane Benjamin https://www.cityblm.org/government/city-council/municipal-electric-aggregation I’m only posting this section of the Bloomington website because it will soon disappear. It shows the electricity rate residents are paying now if they didn’t opt out of municipal aggregation: Remember .0433 (4.33 cents) Since this agreement expires in June the City negotiated a new 3 year contract: https://www.cityblm.org/Home/Components/News/News/8945/18 The […]

Green believers on Bloomington council

By: Diane Benjamin Local election are early next year. Those who think you should pay for the below need replaced: The slide below was shown during presentation at Bloomington Council on Regeneration/Preservation of older neighborhoods. It was part of the staff presentation: Since Hawthorne Hills doesn’t need Regeneration/Preservation, what area of the City are they […]

Update: EV’s, Rivian, and Lithium

WGLT is reporting Rivian won’t raise the price for existing customers because of the back lash. Losing money on every vehicle sold is better? The Rivian stock price is still down today https://www.wglt.org/2022-03-03/after-backlash-and-canceled-orders-rivian-backtracks-and-wont-raise-prices-for-existing-customers?fbclid=IwAR3ewocgV5DUP_o9H624_U-dCPM3eO6IphJdXTUU8qkXd2DWWUV1DaAEs2w By: Diane Benjamin This story is more about interesting things you should know than anything else.

Things you need to know

By: Diane Benjamin Rivian raised the price of their midsize electric pickup by 20%, $94,000+. People are canceling orders. https://www.reuters.com/technology/rivian-hikes-vehicle-prices-by-20-citing-inflationary-pressure-2022-03-02/ I wonder if the Town of Normal will cancel their order? TWO candidates aren’t running in the District they live in: Scott Preston (91st) and Kyle Ham (105th). They are searching for the voters they […]

People who think “Green” is good need facts

https://www.yellowbullet.com/threads/the-embedded-costs-of-going-green.2672148/ Excerpts: What is a battery?’ I think Nicholas Tesla said it best when he called it an Energy Storage System. That’s an important distinction. They do not make electricity – they store electricity produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants, or diesel-fueled generators. So, to say an EV is a zero-emission vehicle […]

Final Bloomington last night

By: Diane Benjamin The meeting, including Township before Council, was over 3 hours. Your representatives look ridiculous behind masks. Normal doesn’t wear them at Council meetings, citizens deserve to see your faces! Of course the camera operator makes seeing faces difficult since it always isn’t in the right location. It was much more fun seeing […]

Need proof Climate Change is a hoax?

By: Diane Benjamin How about when a local devoted socialist is asked to write about it? Yes the socialists want to ban meat to save the planet. If you see Krystle or friends out eating meat, snap a pic. Here’s more proof Climate Change is a hoax from the Heartland Institute: (heartland.org) From a Press […]

Mollie Ward proves why Tari appointed her

By: Diane Benjamin Alderman Mollie Ward wants the City of Bloomington to stop Climate Change! She made this statement Monday night right after Tim Gleason claimed most insurance claims with the City because of the June storm will be denied. Mollie must have missed the Public Comments from Eastgate residents stating they have been dealing […]

Three things you need to know

Rivian deliveries are now delayed until July 1st: https://www.autoweek.com/news/green-cars/a36556537/rumor-rivian-r1t-pickup-delayed/ EPA is using fictitious data to claim Global Warming: https://climaterealism.com/2021/05/epas-new-climate-change-indicators-publication-misleads-on-heatwaves/ WEEK TV has a story on Wednesday night’s District 87 School Board meeting, unfortunately no video of the parents speaking but they are in the story: https://week.com/2021/05/26/district-87-parents-voice-concerns-over-covid-rules-and-curriculum-focus/

More on Science . . .

Below are the results of a poll conducted by Rasmussen and the Heartland Institute. Don’t bother commenting if you are indoctrinated, you need better media. Haters will claim the Heartland Institute is bias, they can’t say that about Rasmussen.

Dispelling the uninformed

By: Diane Benjamin A LONG comment was left to today’s Earth Day story that I didn’t post. Below is just the first lines and proof this person doesn’t care about facts, I left their typo: China is at the forefront of mitigating global warming. Apparently America’s exceptionalism means we blame other countries fro our lack […]

Do electric buses work in the cold?

By:  Diane Benjamin In Indianapolis their electric buses started losing the charge when the temperature got below 50 degrees! See this story:  https://www.theindychannel.com//indygo-electric-buses-having-battery-problems-cant-handle-the-cold Excerpts from TODAY’s story: INDIANAPOLIS — The IndyGo electric buses are already showing signs of trouble as the temperatures plunge. It’s a problem Call 6 Investigates first exposed in March, and now it’s happening. […]

Solar panels?

By:  Diane Benjamin Today I received an email from Habitat for Humanity with this included: Did you know all the people in California who invested their money in solar panels still didn’t have power when PG&E shut off power?  No Tesla charging, no lights, nothing! https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-10/californians-learning-that-solar-panels-don-t-work-in-blackouts Might be worth asking questions before you spend a […]

Climate Change Question

By:  Diane Benjamin Hey, it’s Friday.  Time to have some fun.  Emails received by FOIA. Remember when the US Conference of Mayors was held in Hawaii?  The same people lecturing and taxing to save the environment flew across an ocean to attend.  Mayor Koos attended the Climate Summit held right before it. Obviously Climate Change […]

Not so Green

By:  Diane Benjamin Know what that dark spot is?  Long time readers will:  OIL. This turbine is east of the Leroy-Lexington blacktop just south of Route 9.  Usually they keep the ones along busy roads clean, the ones with less traffic going by are worse. Even Green technology needs oil.  I wonder if AOC knows? […]

Bloomington: What’s your electric rate?

By:  Diane Benjamin The latest case for limited government: Bloomington talked residents into electric aggregation in 2013.  It was meant to save people money by contracting for lower electricity rates by buying in bulk. According to the City website the contract negotiated for you expired almost a year ago: Source:  http://www.cityblm.org/government/city-council/municipal-electric-aggregation If you click on the […]

Driving must end!

By:  Diane Benjamin Guess where this statement is: Even with insurance, gas, oil changes, and new tires every 2-3 years – anybody spend $8000 on maintenance a year?  “AAA” looks like a link, it doesn’t work. This statement is on a website called GoodToGoMclean.org It should be obvious who sponsors it, the guys with priorities […]

Preaching Socialism

By:  Diane Benjamin Illinois People’s action was at the Sugar Creek Art Festival spreading socialism, note they target the young who don’t know that socialism kills: One item on the sign is 100% renewable energy.  Evidently they don’t know the wind doesn’t always blow and the sun doesn’t always shine.  Creating batteries to store energy […]

More Jenn Carrillo

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn has new comments on Facebook this morning claiming she is completely non-violent.  Everything not in quotes are Jenn’s words.  This is non-violent? Below are the parts of the article Jenn didn’t quote.  “this man” is President Trump.    https://splinternews.com/this-is-just-the-beginning-1827099100 The U.S. had thousands of domestic bombings per year in the early 1970s.

Climate Change Scam

Sorry, reading the wrong month By:  Diane Benjamin Yes, it’s been really hot!  Media thought we might break a record yesterday.  What was the record yesterday?  94 degrees What the media often fails to tell you is what year that record was set.  Instead they spew Global Warming or Climate Change unsubstantiated statements and demand […]
