Bloomington minus 2 aldermen

By: Diane Benjamin Bloomington managed a 44 minute meeting last night. Only 7 of the 9 Alderman were present: If you listened to the roll call you wouldn’t know who was missing because the Clerk only called the names of those present! (That’s not a roll call) If you can’t tell, Sheila Montney and Mollie […]

Why get vaccinated?

By: Diane Benjamin The Covid vaccine was created for a strain that doesn’t exist anymore. The Illinois Department of Public health numbers prove being vaccinated doesn’t keep you out of the hospital or prevent death. The break-through numbers as of 2/16/2022 are: https://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaccine-breakthrough.html As of 12/29/21: https://blnnews.com/2021/12/30/idph-update-breakthrough-cases/ These numbers explain why Joe Rogan was attacked […]

Stop the FEAR PORN WGLT!

By: Diane Benjamin https://www.wglt.org/local-news/2022-02-14/unit-5-school-board-calls-special-meeting-for-wednesday-on-covid-19-rules Repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it? I’m thrilled most parents aren’t experimenting on their kids with a vaccination! Omicron isn’t deadly. Unlike the original Covid it doesn’t attack the lungs. Omicron is providing herd immunity because it isn’t deadly. I know, I have it! It’s wonderful for […]

Tri-Valley mask policy

Today I heard a story about a school District that is now mask optional because they were part of the lawsuit. There was much jubilation and many smiles yesterday as most of the kids saw their friends faces for the first time in 2 years. I received this announcement today from Tri-Valley. You won’t know […]

5 things you need to know:

By: Diane Benjamin 1) Pritzker has instructed his Attorney General to immediately appeal the judge’s ruling yesterday calling masks “evil” and making them optional. https://justthenews.com/nation/states/center-square/judge-blocks-schools-enforcing-pritzkers-mask-vaccine-mandates-refers?utm_source=breaking&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter Dictators don’t go down easy/ 2) Somebody in Old Farm Lakes was tired of waiting for a snowplow, they used a snowblower to make a path. The Bloomington website shows […]

Missing Data – McLean County Deaths

By: Diane Benjamin I am purposely refraining from using percentage increases in the data below. I believe that would distort the actual numbers. For example, I could tell you confirmed suicides increased 40% between 2019 and 2020. The actual number increase was 9, very tragic but 40% sounds far worse than 9. There are a […]

Requiring vaccinations will hurt you

By: Diane Benjamin To Community Players who only want vaccinated people at their shows, and Marcus Theaters who are doing shows just for the vaxed: Being vaccinated doesn’t prevent hospitalization, death, or even getting Covid: https://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaccine-breakthrough.html Illinois hospitalizations and deaths in fully vaccinated people: Those are only the serious breakthrough cases, many more still get […]

Community Players goes woke

By: Diane Benjamin h/t a reader Did you hear the UK will no longer require masks anywhere, including schools? https://www.india.com/news/world/uk-to-lift-additional-covid-restrictions-from-next-week-says-boris-johnson-5194531/?fbclid=IwAR0YbCYFx_sis73chTIP2kRw4Pi0unJwUNsYHLFiHP_ooIbbVE8s150920M Anybody who remotely follows the news knows Omicron has been very short lived in countries that got it first. (South Africa and UK) Some people haven’t heard being vaccinated doesn’t prevent getting Covid. Community Players […]

Five things

By: Diane Benjamin Two different Town of Normal vehicles taking up the limited on street parking in Uptown. Even they don’t want to park in the garages. h/t a reader who was looking for a parking space. Maybe somebody in Normal finally realized bikers have some responsibility on the roads: Are signs for pedestrians next? […]

Fly on the Wall: Chemberly Cummings

Flying around State Farm I saw a “podcast” featuring Chemberly. As an elected official, is it smart to admit you have suffered from anxiety, depression, mental health issues, and physical issues most of your life Chemberly? Going for a sympathy vote? I remember when Democrats proclaimed Trump mentally ill (he isn’t) and called him a […]

Vaccine failure

By: Diane Benjamin I’ve been updating and posting the chart below for months. One reader told me he doesn’t understand it, so I will explain it again. The Illinois Department of Public Health used to claim they don’t track hospitalizations and deaths in fully vaccinated people, but then they started posting it. The problem is […]

Trust government? Explain this

By: Diane Benjamin Follow the money. The link to the information below is available from the McLean County Health Department website. Clicking on the COVID-19 Vaccine tab takes you to the IDPH website – Illinois Department of Public Health. I have been tracking breakthrough hospitalizations and deaths in Illinois which proves the vaccinated can still […]

City of Bloomington and the jab

By: Diane Benjamin Why would any organization willing comply with tyranny? Follow the money! We used to be a country where individuals were allowed to make decisions for themselves, government is using COVID to forever change that to: Do What I Say. The City of Bloomington issued the below: When were HIPAA Laws repealed? Why […]

Experimenting on kids

By: Diane Benjamin At least one local pediatrician sent letters to MINORS urging them to take the COVID vaccine. The letter claimed it will keep them from spreading COVID to other people. Evidently the doctor gets paid per jab or he doesn’t know vaccinated people can spread COVID and children are very low level spreaders. […]

PAGE still not found

By: Diane Benjamin The web page where the Illinois Department of Public Health reports breakthrough COVID hospitalizations and deaths has been down again for many days. The numbers are supposed to be updated every Wednesday. Don’t bother calling the number on the screen, they will provide a number in Chicago. That office in Chicago will […]

TWO things you need to know

By: Diane Benjamin 1) Local schools are teaching Critical Race Theory. They get around it by using the principles of CRT without calling it teaching Critical Race Theory. They might call it anti-racism, white supremacy, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, or White Privilege. Any program that uses race as a qualifier for generalization about a group […]

Just say NO!

By: Diane Benjamin Children Shouldn’t Get COVID-19 Vaccines, Harvard Professor Says Excerpt: Children are more likely to contract serious disease or die from the annual influenza, or the flu, than COVID-19, according to data and studies that Kulldorff has reviewed. Just 195 children under the age of 4 and 442 between 5 and 18 have […]

Oppose Democrat tyranny – File now

By: Diane Benjamin Ask yourself: Why is government pushing a vaccine that doesn’t prevent COVID because it isn’t a vaccine? It’s experimental, the long term effects aren’t known. Survival rates are over 98% for those infected! Why do they want to shoot everyone with an un-proven therapy when proven therapies exist? My Body My Choice […]

Just the Facts

By: Diane Benjamin Comments by those who believe government talking points will not be approved. I expect lots of them, don’t waste your time with Fauci or other junk links. 3 doctors and one scientist held a Global Covid Summit Saturday in Bloomington. The event was free, the organizers weren’t there for a buck. Over […]

IDPH FOIA: COVID data

By: Diane Benjamin I filed a FOIA request with the Illinois Department of Public Health last week. The data I really want they don’t track! They can’t tell me how many COVID infections today are in fully vaccinated people. That means they also don’t know how many of the cases are in unvaccinated people. IDPH […]

Illegal Pam Reece!

By: Diane Benjamin It’s really sad when government thinks they have the right to force people to comply based on a façade of fear. Is Reece just trying to get more Pritzker money? Want to know why Pritzker hasn’t allowed the legislature to make laws concerning COVID? He doesn’t want Illinois to find out the […]

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 […]

Finally the truth

By: Diane Benjamin I’ve been hearing for week about COVID cases raging in other countries among the VACCINATED. Our media claims cases are the fault of the unvaccinated. Finally the truth comes out: https://www.news-gazette.com/coronavirus/it-came-as-a-huge-surprise-most-new-ui-cases-among-fully-vaccinated/article_97e83ef7-06ef-54e4-b5e3-cf9ff5672c93.html Excerpts: I’m still waiting for the truth about those hospitalized. In Israel the majority are vaccinated.

Normal’s painful meeting

By:  Diane Benjamin Chris Koos was sick so Kevin McCarthy acted as Mayor.  No one adds less intensity to doing the people’s business than McCarthy.  Try to stay awake if you watch. New people showed up at Public Comment. A local businessman wanted to know why he wasn’t allowed to participate in the Town picking […]

Local Stats nobody talks about – deaths

By:  Diane Benjamin I compiled these numbers from the Coroner’s Report filed monthly with the McLean County Board Justice Committee.   All of the below can be found in the meeting attachments here: https://www.mcleancountyil.gov/478/Justice-Committee I wanted to see what effect the COVID shutdown is having in McLean County.  There isn’t enough information in the Coroner’s report […]

Town of Normal is Hiring!

By:  Diane Benjamin Either Normal is spending money they don’t have because of COVID or they have over-taxed everybody and have a huge stockpile of cash.  Without ISU students revenues have to be down, but Normal is hiring anyway.  I bet they will say:  It is in the budget: DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS AND COMMUNITY RELATIONS […]

Were District 8 voters deceived?

By:  Diane Benjamin When Shayna Watchinski ran for the McLean County Board she told people she worked in “healthcare”.  See this WGLT story:  https://www.wglt.org/post/facing-primary-challenge-left-segobiano-touts-bipartisan-record#stream/0 Excerpt: Professional? According to the Illinois License Look up website, Shayna Watchinski has never held a professional license of any kind:  https://ilesonline.idfpr.illinois.gov/DFPR/Lookup/LicenseLookup.aspx That didn’t stop Watchinski from posing for campaign photos […]
