Darren Bailey won! Pritzker cooked

The Clay County judge ruled today that any orders issued by Pritzker past the 30 days given to him by law are invalid! There are now no limitations on ANYONE in the State of Illinois.  You are open, open, open.  This applies to schools too – Illinois can not require masks. This also voids any […]

Bloomington Pandering?

By:  Diane Benjamin The left is famous for “never enough”.  Whatever goals they achieve they want more.  The local police were supposedly so bad a civilian police review board (PSCRB) had to be established.  It took forever before they investigated one complaint – they determined the police did nothing wrong.  They had meetings, printed flyers […]

Jenn Carrillo: Using the incite violence playbook?

By:  Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo gets talking points from the Southern Poverty Law Center.  SPLC is a money making machine promoting personal attacks for money.    https://thefederalist.com/2018/05/07/5-reasons-southern-poverty-law-center-hate-mongering-scam/ See more at the link above.  This organization thrives on hate and violence. Any person or organization that uses the Southern Poverty Law Center as a source for […]

Remove Carrillo from office

By:  Diane Benjamin Yesterday Jenn Carrillo posted this: Jenn Carrillo does not care about the foundations of a civil society:  Rule of Law. She has forfeited her right to serve as a representative of Ward 6 in the City of Bloomington.    The video below was taken by one of the protesters and posted to […]

Take Action Now: Tyrant Pritzker!

By:  Diane Benjamin Dictator Pritzker is playing politics while Illinois burns.  It is obvious now the shutdown in Illinois was never about bending the curve.  It is about trashing the economy in hopes of a huge bailout while crushing small businesses and people deemed non-essential. Congratulation democrats – you elected a dictator.   Proof:  Raising taxes […]

Jenn Carrillo’s day job

By:  Diane Benjamin Do you choose Freedom and Liberty or Socialism?  Jenn’s day job is selling socialism.  If her side wins history proves people will die.  Socialism has never worked and never will! Jenn narrated this video.  Yes it has a lot of truth, but her solution will destroy America. If you don’t understand what […]

Is Stalin running Champaign?

This will be a national story:  (except for ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or MSNBC) https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2020/03/13/illinois-mayor-may-ban-firearms-ammunition-as-part-of-emergency-over-wuhan-virus-n2564916 By:  Diane Benjamin The Champaign City Council held an emergency meeting this morning to respond to Corona virus.  What did Champaign do when 60,000,000 Americans contracted the Swine Fly and 18,000 died?  Anyone?  Anything?  This is an obvious abuse of […]

As Seen on Facebook:

By:  Diane Benjamin h/t a reader Defining what it means to be Progressive is Nikita Richard, failed candidate for McLean County Clerk: Nikita “tagged” McLean County Clerk Kathy Michael and McLean County Sheriff Jon Sandage apparently to embarrassed them into allowing prisoners here to vote. Sheriff Sandage responded: Next, Kathy Michael responded, these comments appear […]

As Seen on Facebook:

By:  Diane Benjamin Elections reveal who people really are.  They are passionate and say things they would never say otherwise.  (In other words, they hide who they are the rest of of the time.)  If people take the time to send me things they find troubling, you probably need to see them too. Start with […]

The Constitution was signed on this day in 1787 – 232 years ago. Read it lately? Note:  It doesn’t say We the Government . . .

Rodney Davis – WJBC

I know most of you aren’t listening!  Just an FYI By:  Diane Benjamin I have never been a big Rodney Davis fan.  At times he does the right thing and at times he’s part of the swamp.  He does know a few things about mass shootings though since he was in one on a Virginia […]

Miscellaneous

By:  Diane Benjamin Homeland Security has not issued a valid retainer for Jose Rodriguez.  They knew when they sent one signed by an immigration officer instead of a judge it wasn’t valid in Illinois because former REPUBLICAN Governor Rauner signed the Trust Act. I looked up who voted to make Illinois a sanctuary State, none […]

Laws matter in Indiana, not in Illinois

By:  Diane Benjamin A deputy Town Marshall was arrested in Carthage Indiana for:   *  criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon   *  felony impersonation of a public servant   *  official misconduct of a public servant   *  and pointing a firearm at another Why was he arrested? See the story here:    https://www.theindychannel.com/news/local-news/crime/carthage-deputy-town-marshal-arrested-for-firing-shots-during-burglary-investigation […]

Is ISU teaching Socialism?

By:  Diane Benjamin This guy ran for Normal Town Council – note the shirt: He was wearing this shirt on election night.  He is a graduate of Illinois State University.  So is Jenn Carrillo, a self-called democrat socialist. How many other kids leave ISU as socialists?  Is Illinois State University creating socialists on purpose?  Our […]

Renner and Gun Violence

By:  Diane Benjamin This is one of those stories I meant to write days ago but didn’t get to it.  Since yesterday was Illinois Gun Lobby Day in Springfield, today I got to it.    Thousands of people were in Springfield:   https://www.ilnews.org/news/state_politics/thousands-of-gun-owners-turn-out-for-lobbying-day-in/article_ed1c396a-50d5-11e9-b951-dfdb2efccee9.html?fbclid=IwAR3AfotxEgqUQ8WjZ30146IZdbBimEozGIk5d77gUK16Lbzq3CpfwvUJZOs There is one thing Democrats don’t get: Criminals don’t care about laws Last […]

AG Investigating Town of Normal AGAIN

BY;;  Diane Benjamin The Town of Normal continues to have an illegal public comment policy.  Normal was forced to change the policy in 2017 when the Attorney General told them they can not have a policy that allows a citizen to only speak every 45 days.  Instead of slapping the Town’s entire policy into oblivion, […]

Democrats run wild

By:  Diane Benjamin Democrats have only been in complete control of the state for a short time.  Already they have passed a $15 minimum wage which make Illinois even less competitive with all of the surrounding states. Other things being seriously considered: Removing all regulations including parental notification on abortion Allowing abortion up to birth […]

Facts don’t matter

by:  Diane Benjamin Facts frequently don’t matter because too many people think with their heart instead of their brain.  They twist facts to prove to themselves why conservative values are wrong.  Any one who thinks government is their friend falls into this category.  Government doesn’t exist to solve problem because:  1) it isn’t their money […]

Congrats Scott Laughlin

By:  Diane Benjamin Earlier this week Scott had Dick Durbin on his morning show (WJBC).  Since the Farm Bill just passed, it was a hot topic.  The Farm bill is around 80% Food Stamps (SNAP) and nothing to do with farms.  The 20% left enables corporate farms, not the little guys – but that’s a […]

Gift Cards, Green Top, and SLBB

By:  Diane Benjamin Bills and payroll for Bloomington Monday night: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=20474 I wonder who taxpayers will be handing gift cards to: Green Top’s taxpayer 3 month subsidy: Celebrate!  Four more employees spiked their already high unaffordable pensions so they get an even more unaffordable retirement at your expense:       Agenda: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=20488 Likely without discussion […]

Update: Chicago comes to McLean County

See another pic:  https://blnnews.com/2018/12/03/more-chicago-comes-to-mclean-county/ By:  Diane Benjamin The newly elected County Board members were sworn in this morning: Shayna Watchinski proved today who she serves – it isn’t McLean County! This pic shows all the other recently elected members being sworn in, note Shayna isn’t with them: Shayna chose to be sworn into office by […]

Supposedly Nonpartisan

By:  Diane Benjamin Municipal elections are by law nonpartisan.  The theory is party doesn’t matter, everyone wants to do what’s best for the City.  Ask those who voted against the wishes of voters if they did that when they voted for the Coliseum.  Ask the recent council members if taking $40 million+ more a year […]

Welcoming Ordinance will be back

By:  Diane Benjamin The local progressives are possessed with bringing in illegal aliens! The latest is Illinois State University: Since we have no borders, these people aren’t illegal, merely undocumented.     Yes it was sponsored by ISU: One of the speakers is a candidate for the Bloomington City Council – a former illegal alien […]

Why did the Pantagraph do it?

By:  Diane Benjamin The paper decided to publish a multi-part story on sexual assault victims.  Gee, why? This is one of them:   https://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/b-n-sexual-assault-survivors-reveal-trauma-lessons/article_e6a2547d-f8a2-5b55-908f-1b4ca3c6f764.html#tncms-source=infinity-scroll-summary-siderail-latest If they thought it would get out the democrat vote, they probably did the opposite.  The story claims those that have now come forward did so because of the Kavanaugh hearings.  Yes, […]

The local Democratic Socialists

By:  Diane Benjamin Maybe attempting to disguise themselves, the local group uses the initials DSA instead of Democratic Socialists of America. This Saturday they are holding a meeting on the Wesleyan Campus: I bet they will agree with this statement:   “capitalism is the realm of injustice”. Before DSA gets excited, those words were uttered by Hugo […]

Rule of Law Matters because women do LIE

By:  Diane Benjamin In this country the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty.  Allegations mean nothing without proof.  Way too many people think that women should always be believed when they accuse a man of sexual assault.  They are wrong, below is why: https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Brian-Banks-Rape-Case-Exonerated-NFL-Atlanta-Falcons-218978851.html Brian Banks was a great high school football player with […]

The early voting sham starts Thursday

By:  Diane Benjamin The actual election is November 6th, but thanks to the Illinois progressives, voting starts September 27th. Yep, some people can’t get to the polls without over a month of voting. The purpose of early voting is to make sure people vote before any news comes out that might change their mind.  Votes […]

Can’t have a conversation with some people

By:  Diane Benjamin We are being intentionally deceived.  Politicians do it.  Media does it.  Schools are doing it. Social media reveals just how bad it is.  This pic was not taken locally, but it was posted locally.  The person who posted it doesn’t see a problem?  Do you? That brings me to Sonny Garcia – […]

The show is cancelled!

  The dog and pony show for tonight has been cancelled.  The meeting would have been illegal because City hall isn’t big enough for everyone to attend that wants to.  Tari knew that when he scheduled it.  The Council now needs and ordinance not allowing Tari to call special meetings without agreement by a majority […]

Bloomington is at war thanks to Tari

By:  Diane Benjamin These are the people who helped elect Tari both times, note he looks much younger in the pic below.  The talking points haven’t changed. These are the people demanding a “welcoming ordinance” now. These are also Tari’s people: This is what “civility” looks like in Tari’s Bloomington. Proof:  Tari’s hate filled rant […]

The radicals lose Monday

By: Diane Benjamin The proposed “welcoming ordinance” is now posted.  Illinois People’s Action, the YWCA, and all the other radicals demanding it will celebrate, but they are the big losers: The ordinance is a worthless exercise that changes nothing. It only recaps what is already happening. Some flowery Tari language is included only so the […]

When Radicals run your Town:

By:  Diane Benjamin If Normal passes the Welcoming Ordinance tonight, they are empowering leftist radicals. Bloomington and Normal are chasing people out of town by giving into radicals.  It started with citizens second guessing the actions of the police.  It continues with laws ignored via a Welcoming Ordinance.  Now they think they should pick the next […]
