Adios Jenn

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn has been marginalized since all her candidates lost last April. She is now persona non grata among her former base. Maybe she bought a house outside her ward on purpose! Unwilling to believe the American dream is alive and well for those who choose to reach for it, Jenn couldn’t go […]

Must watch video: Critical Race Theory

The video is 18 minutes by (actual) journalist Christopher Rufo who has been exposing this Marxist ideology for years. It is in schools and government right now disguised as Equity, Diversity, Inclusiveness, Social Justice, White Supremacy, Anti-Racism, Social and Emotional learning, Culturally Responsive Teaching, and probably others. This video-essay explores the intellectual history of critical […]

Normal just can’t drop it!

By: Diane Benjamin Remember back to last year. Usually when a zoning change is requested it is because some entrepreneur wants to develop a property in a way it isn’t zoned for. That isn’t the case with One Normal Plaza. The Town is pushing allowing alcohol in the park. Yes, it is a park setting […]

Look who is driving race based teaching locally

By: Diane Benjamin Keep in mind while reading: Illinois got an “F” in teaching history and civics: https://blnnews.com/2021/07/03/the-enemy-within-is-the-public-schools/ All of the information below was received months ago from Unit 5 by FOIA. What does this tell you? Are teachers “historians” or teachers of history? Should teachers be “activists” and teaching their students to mimic them? […]

The Enemy Within is the Public Schools

By: Diane Benjamin The Fordham Institute examined education in all 50 states for content in Civics and History. Illinois was given an F, as in failing to education in both areas Illinois begins on PDF page 122: https://fordhaminstitute.org/sites/default/files/publication/pdfs/20210623-state-state-standards-civics-and-us-history-20210.pdf#new_tab Excerpts: Grand Finale: Tell me why the people running the Illinois State Board of Education and everyone […]

Don’t be bullied folks!

By: Diane Benjamin Government only thinks they can set rules for citizens at public comment. They can limit your time, but not what you say. Chris Koos tries it, Mboka Mwilambwe just started reading a statement to limit you, Unit 5 did last week, and so did District 87 two weeks ago. Be inspired – […]

Critical Race Theory: What it is and how to fight it

Christopher Rufo is in the forefront of exposing this Marxist ideology. Marx believed in class warfare. That wouldn’t work in America where most people believe anyone can succeed, so this theory is attempting to start a race war. The end goal is overthrowing capitalism and the Constitution. It does nothing to uplift minorities! The article […]

Fleeing Illinois

By: Diane Benjamin I personally know 8 people who have fled Illinois in the last 6 weeks. All of them moved to Red States. Two of them moved to Foley Alabama, just north of Gulf Shores. The Foley City Council just passed the below. See for yourself the difference between living in a Blue State […]

And the winners are . . .

By: Diane Benjamin The winners on April 6th will be determined solely on turnout. Around 20% will bother to vote, most people won’t know there is an election. They won’t understand local politics will hurt them far more than any November election. Unless YOU get people to the poles, these people will win. Guess who […]

Lorenz thinks $3 million for roads is fabulous

By: Diane Benjamin Government’s job is first to preserve and protect freedom for future generations. How is that one working for you? Next, government should only be doing what citizens can’t do for themselves: police, fire, water, sewer and roads. Maybe citizens need to start building their own roads and charge a toll to use […]

Things the don’t fit anywhere else

By: Diane Benjamin WGLT and the League of Women Voters are teaming up again for local debates. Nothing is scheduled for anybody running except mayoral candidates: Former County Clerk candidate and current employee of the City of Bloomington thinks all of you who sacrificed to send your kids to college should pay the bill for […]

Bloomington: A bunch of white supremacists

By: Diane Benjamin Public comment was only people demanding illegal aliens get the full rights of citizens. At least one comment threatened the Council if they don’t pass a Welcoming Ordinance. Congrats residents! You are labeled racist, a xenophobe, and a white supremist if you don’t agree. One speaker claimed Illinois enacted Home Rule so […]

Koos in campaign mode

By: Diane Benjamin Koos must think lots of people approve of what happened at the US Capital. Hint Chris: They don’t. The videos released over the weekend are outrageous and every participant should be prosecuted. If Koos’s real intent was to vilify the locals who went to DC on January 6th he doesn’t support the […]

Did Koos notice?

By: Diane Benjamin The Supreme Court ruled the Constitution doesn’t get thrown out the window because of a virus – no matter how deadly people think it is. Justice Neil Gorsuch strongly criticized the court’s previous approach. He wrote: “It is time—past time—to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is […]

Renner: State the LAW

By: Diane Benjamin Tari Renner started last night’s meeting with a Small Business Saturday proclamation. I wonder how he explains reports on social media of the POLICE being used to close down restaurants in town that refused to stop in-door dining. (Possibly more on that one in the future) Reports are the police told the […]

Tari: Forget your oath of office?

By: Diane Benjamin Vowing to uphold both the Constitution of the United States and the State of Illinois is beyond the left. Tari Renner proved that again at the emergency Liquor Commission meeting yesterday. See the short video clip as reported by Cities 92.9: https://www.cities929.com/2020/11/21/bloomington-mayor-renner-whines-at-liquor-commission-hearing-about-the-states-attorney/?fbclid=IwAR3IAg490VjyNCDqMzrrp8xgykB7fmsDgfxZdlbgmHMyl4m6kPGO9oEyrO0 Tari expect State Attorney Don Knapp to enforce Pritzker Executive […]

History Friday

By: Diane Benjamin One hundred years ago tomorrow America celebrated the 300th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock. Tomorrow should be celebrated as the 400th anniversary, but those re-writing history don’t want celebrations. The enemies within want to destroy the civil and religious freedoms that formed the United States. In case you think […]

History Friday

By: Diane Benjamin This is something I have wanted to do for a LONG time. We aren’t being taught our founding documents which allows threats freedom. We have people attempting to steal liberty and too many who don’t understand why America is different from every other country. Here we believe in the individual not some […]

Now they are flat out lying

By: Diane Benjamin Democrats are desperate to pass the Progressive Income Tax. It is a scam that will hurt Illinois as the people with the money to leave will leave. It has happened in every state that has tried the same. The amendment does open the possibility to tax retirement income, but probably not for […]

ISU: Job Opening #2

By: Diane Benjamin https://jobsearch.illinoisstate.edu/en-us/job/510294/associate-director-for-outreach-and-antiracism-education Have there been sightings of guys in white hoods on campus? Burning crosses? This is job opening #2 to convince students they are being discriminated against. #1: https://blnnews.com/2020/10/01/isu-is-hiring-head-divider/ Your dollars are being used to uncover racism where little to none exists. Americans are not racist! Democrats have to convince minorities it […]

ISU is hiring: Head Divider

By: Diane Benjamin https://jobsearch.illinoisstate.edu/en-us/job/510267/diversity-equity-and-inclusion-officer These “theoretical frameworks” teach: skin color morally taints you whites have sinned against all minorities history is racist the country’s founding was illegitimate punctuality is white culture established norms attack minorities the county is fundamentally racist This is toxic training against civil society and completely absurd on it’s face. It explains […]

Bloomington: Your Ward 5 candidates

By: Diane Benjamin Never let a good crisis go to waste. This was Twitter yesterday after the Breonna Taylor decision. A grand jury – CITIZENS called on to make decisions – agreed two of the officers should not be charged. The decisions were not made by the police, a State’s Attorney, or even the BLACK […]

Illinois stupidity

By: Diane Benjamin If you haven’t figured out by now Democrats running Illinois has been a disaster. There isn’t enough of your money to satisfy their insatiable spending lunacy. Changing the Illinois Constitution so they can tax more proves that fact. Voting YES to tax the rich proves you are the problem. It is impossible […]

We are being lied to about MANY things – the FAIR TAX is one of them

See this link: https://wirepoints.org/heres-the-central-misleading-claim-constantly-made-about-the-fair-tax-proposal-quicktake/ Excerpts from the article: Don’t be deceived: The State of Illinois can not live within their means. The Progressive Tax Amendment is just the latest scheme to get more of your money. Instead of reforming un-affordable pensions, they want more of your money. Jobs will be lost and more people will […]

Disappearing Aldermen

By:  Diane Benjamin The City of Bloomington has dealt with Aldermen who disrespect the flag with activist signs and refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance, just make them disappear. Next they need to work on the disrespect to their oaths of office, promoting socialism or worse is not compatible with the Constitution they swore […]

What about Landlords Pritzker?

By:  Diane Benjamin People have been emailing Public Comments to the Bloomington City Council instead of calling in.  I’ve always considered Public Comment for the PUBLIC, not for the elected officials.  Most hardly pay attention.  Meanwhile citizens like hearing what other citizens have to say to elected officials. I FOIA’d these comments for 6 meetings.  […]

Covenant Nation

The Pilgrims sailed to an unknown land because they wanted religious freedom, not the state mandated version. The greatest army at the time – the British – weren’t defeated by a bunch of farmers without divine intervention. The Declaration of Indepence, written by Thomas Jefferson, originally contained a line outlawing slavery.  The King of England […]
