Darin Lahood supports sending more money to Ukraine

The “war” has been going on for more than 1 year. Biden has prevented peace talks. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/11/08/biden-admin-nudging-led-ukraine-to-drop-putin-condition-for-peace-talks-00065679 Meanwhile, we are funding salaries and pensions for people in Ukraine – I believe the total is up to $130 billion with no accountability or transparency on who’s pocket our money ended up in. Ukraine is a corrupt […]

Check the Agenda, the below isn’t there: https://d3n9y02raazwpg.cloudfront.net/cityblm/259d37a5-7d4f-11ed-9024-0050569183fa-791fe512-602c-4d20-98c8-ecdbbed39134-1694194607.pdf In lieu of declaring Bloomington a Sanctuary City a few years ago the Council opted to join “Welcoming America”.

Unit 5 is hiring Marxists:

By: Diane Benjamin Dr. Shelvin must believe people of color can not succeed without you paying to “empower disenfranchised communities”. She’s black and successful, how did she do it? DEI pays well – $35 an hour. I enjoy the leftist names for teaching Marxist ideology: Freedom School. Unit 5 doesn’t currently have “quality instruction”? Freedom […]

Consequences for Normal

By: Diane Benjamin When Judge Kording announced the Town of Normal was an “incorporated town” he also stated he knew this ruling would have consequences. It does! Keep in mind the ONLY reason Normal now has a problem is because the elites didn’t want voters to decide if they wanted Trustees elected by districts instead […]

It’s not a workers rights amendment

By Diane Benjamin Remember when we defeated the Progressive Income Tax amendment? Amendment 1 will be on the November ballot, it must be defeated too. This Amendment hands power to government unions that shouldn’t exist at all.  They shouldn’t exist because they elect people to negotiate their own contracts.  We just get the bills. Amendment […]

Temporary breather

By: Diane Benjamin Thank goodness the primary is over! Congrats to the winners. Before the next onslaught of campaign ads hit, cut the cable cord. Life is awesome without constant lies. The biggest loser is the ILGOP who failed to get Richard Irvin, Kyle Ham, and Rodney Davis elected, probably others elsewhere. Ken Griffin found […]

Need some help Mboka?

I hear he’s still taking applications! By: Diane Benjamin H/T an associate who did some research on the Ward 6 candidates. Replacing Carrillo with a liked minded individual validates her vote buying with candy bars. Ward 6 didn’t know who they were voting for, she didn’t win with overwhelming support from the Ward. Since Democrat […]

The Domestic Enemy: The National Archives!

By: Diane Benjamin This morning Glenn Beck stated on his radio show the National Archives now has a warning label on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Not being one to believe everything I hear, I checked it out. Both documents have warning labels! You can send these American Marxists a comment here: https://www.archives.gov/contact […]

Is OSF still Catholic?

By: Diane Benjamin See the email below. OSF is demanding all employees be vaccinated. They will no longer recognize a religious or pregnancy deferral for not complying with Pritzker. Question 1 for OSF: Why do you take (illegal) executive orders about healthcare from a morbidly obese governor? Pritzker knows being morbidly obese puts him in […]

Teachers who refuse to leave the union are the problem

By: Diane Benjamin District 87 is meeting tonight (5:00 at BHS) to demand your children wear masks when the school year starts. There is no proof masks work and lots of proof they don’t. The School Board will do it anyway. What the School Board should be doing is insuring rouge teachers don’t follow the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Police are reading this site

By: Diane Benjamin Remember Sonny Garcia parading around with a bullhorn outside the Unit 5 School Board meeting? https://blnnews.com/2021/06/17/unit-5-community-organizing-by-the-local-socialists/ If anybody felt intimidated at that meeting is was the people trying to get past his screaming. A reader asked me what he was chanting, honestly I couldn’t understand a word of what he was saying. […]

Local RINO’s: Painting with Bold Colors isn’t allowed

By: Diane Benjamin The biggest reason people refuse to call themselves Republican is because the Republic Party is the do-nothing party when they have the reins of power. DC Republicans voted dozens of times to end Obamacare when their votes were meaningless. When they actually were able to end this healthcare disaster and replace it […]

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 […]

What happened to the AMERICAN Culture?

By: Diane Benjamin America has always had it’s own culture. Many people have forgotten what unites us. We are being divided into special interest groups meant to make sure we have nothing in common. It’s by design. What is the American Culture? It is the reason people from all over the world want to come […]

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 […]
