They’re back!

By: Diane Benjamin Bullies never go away unless they get squashed! The best defense against a bully is to take them on. Bullies are actually chickens with self esteem problems. Tonight they will be showing up at the Bloomington City Council meeting. First they have hold a little rally outside City Hall: Guess they don’t […]

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 […]

Jenn is my Poster Child!

By: Diane Benjamin I remember years ago when I mentioned “limited government” some people didn’t understand what that means. Politicians are constantly claiming they will save us from whatever and they actually make the whatever worse. Just this week Minneapolis citizens and their leadership are wondering why the police don’t show up when called. Other […]

Update: We are at war

Updates: https://blnnews.com/2020/06/15/more-on-the-list/ https://blnnews.com/2020/06/15/did-jenn-make-this-comment/   By:  Diane Benjamin Please read to the bottom and then share  Jenn Carrillo was brought illegally to this country by her parents.  If her parents broke the law to provide a better life for the family that’s understandable.  Jenn isn’t here for a better life however. She is the founder of […]

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 […]

The Carrillo/Crabill circus continues

By:  Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo makes up history and twists facts to fit her own agenda:  she wants democratic socialism.  She will tell you that democratic socialism is much different from just plain old socialism, but it isn’t.  Anybody who thinks government is capable of running your life better than you skipped civics and history. […]

Council Member Jenn: Hate America?

Read this email exchange Jenn Carrillo had with a citizen of Bloomington. If Jenn thinks America is such an evil place, why is she here? Obviously her parents came to America (illegally) and brought her along for some reason, what was it Jenn? Congrats Ward 6 on electing a representative who thinks white people are racists. […]

Bring in the clowns

by:  Diane Benjamin Oh wait – they are already here: Jenn Carrillo still thinks being an alderman requires a public displays of sexuality: Jeff Crabill decided to stage his own protest with a T-shirt: This is what the shirt says: Jeff confirmed everything the democrat party is saying: People here illegally are more important than […]

The Fools at City Hall

By:  Diane Benjamin For a change the fools were outside City Hall instead of inside.   A LEGAL immigrant friend of mine who fled socialism/communism to come here tried to talk to some of the participants.  The surest way to find a fool is to find people with closed minds.  She found a bunch of them. […]

Bloomington Council Can’t Make Decisions

By:  Diane Benjamin Absent last night:  Jenn Carrillo and Jeff Crabill. Tari Renner claimed he is homeless because pipes broke in his house.  I wonder if he will be paying the likely high water bill?  I hope he didn’t opt out of the insurance that will cover part of the cost.  He was back from […]

Rodriguez had a deportation order

By:  Diane Benjamin It is official – Jose Rodriguez in an illegal alien.  Catch and release policies allowed him to be free in this country since 2013.  Of course he didn’t show up for his court date. STATEMENT: (on the record from Nicole Alberico as an ICE spokesperson) On June 23, 2019, deportation officers with […]

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 […]

Rauner did this – Homeland Security

By:  Diane Benjamin When Jose Rodriguez was arrested last week for the fatal accident his fingerprints were run through the FBI database.  That tipped off Homeland Security who issued an immigration detainer for him. Because Illinois’ former governor signed the Trust Act, McLean County could not hold him for ICE.  The retainer was signed by […]

Is Rodriguez illegal?

By:  Diane Benjamin I believe this guys court appearance has been delayed until tomorrow.  His immigration status is still trying to be determined.  He turned himself in with a lawyer.   This is a picture from the victims Facebook page, unless there is more than one Corey Cottrell living in Normal.  His death if tragic, […]

Illinois GOP, a minority on purpose

By:  Diane Benjamin State GOP Chair Tim Schneider led the Republican Party in a wipe-out last November.  The Republicans have zero power in Springfield thanks to his leadership.  There is now a lawsuit connected to the election of the State Central Committeeman over election improprieties.  Schneider is accused of stealing the election.   Details here:  19-0422 […]

Community Health Care Story problems

By:  Diane Benjamin The paper did a story about the Community Health Care Clinic: https://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/years-later-community-health-care-clinic-still-responding-to-community/article_09100674-ae9e-5719-8808-176424142626.html Excepts: Illegal aliens can’t legally work, what infrastructure work are they doing?  Slave labor? Bloomington changed the JM Scott Healthcare Trust because they didn’t have many people needing help.  At the time they blamed the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid […]

Gearing up for the Welcoming Ordinance

By:  Diane Benjamin If you needed any more proof the YWCA is one of the radical centers of McLean County: DSA is Democratic Socialists of America. They claim democratic socialism is much different from regular old socialism.  It isn’t.  It is just the first step to becoming Cuba or Venezuela.  They convince people to vote […]

WHO was behind Dwight Protest?

By: Diane Benjamin The participants who disrupted the Dwight City Council meeting want you to believe they are just concerned citizens. They aren’t. The group was nice enough to do a fancy video of them marching through Dwight and commenting in the gym. No, I won’t post the video. The end has a list of […]

Guess who else was in Dwight

By: Diane Benjamin Previous stories: https://blnnews.com/2019/03/12/radicals-attack-dwight/ https://blnnews.com/2019/03/12/update-to-dwight-story/ Chicago is attempting to spread their far left lunacy across the State. They need support for bailing them out of the corrupt financial mess they put themselves in. Chicago has been completely controlled by Democrats for close to 90 years. If big government and taxing you to death […]

McBride proves why he shouldn’t be a Trustee

By:  Diane Benjamin The WGLT story about last night’s Normal Town Council meeting doesn’t mention RC McBride voted for the water rate increase:    http://www.wglt.org/post/water-fee-increase-solar-group-buy-making-repeat-appearances-normal Readers are left to surmise he did. This one is worse: I reported this story back on February 28:    https://blnnews.com/2019/02/28/ag-investigating-town-of-normal-again/ WJBC reported it on March 4:    http://www.wjbc.com/2019/03/04/normal-mayor-probed-for-alleged-open-meetings-act-violations/?fbclid=IwAR0mVvQsAVBRPrRVSWllpx_YPGc2YvMk0iHXYXWS0AWvxrBG0FXLxYbmvCg The […]

More proof local elections aren’t non-partisan

By:  Diane Benjamin The ISU College Democrats endorsed Jenn Carrillo! Do you know what the Progressive agenda is? In short, socialism.  Progressives want to force government to run everything because they do not believe in freedom, liberty, and capitalism. They want to tell you how your property can be used.  They want higher taxes because […]

Normal Travels (Again)

By:  Diane Benjamin Meeting docs:   http://www.normal.org/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/31937 In this story about Bloomington spending:    https://blnnews.com/2019/01/26/bloomington-bills-for-monday/ I listed 4 payments to the EDC for $1600 each.  It looks like Renner, Buragas, Mathy, and Tyus won the One Voice trip this year to Washington DC.  Buragas is leaving the Council April 30th and Tyus is the brand new Assistant […]

The Laws Don’t Matter Candidates

By:  Diane Benjamin After the next election Bloomington won’t be represented by a majority of alderman who understand what made America great. Jeff Crabill will be elected since he is running unopposed (congrats Ward 8). Guess who is going to a No Ice In Dwight rally?             Crabill obviously doesn’t know […]

4 pics you need to see

By:  Diane Benjamin First refer back to yesterday’s story:   https://blnnews.com/2019/02/09/remember-when-bloomington-was-broke/ The City of Bloomington will be adding yet another Quality of Life location most of the population will never use.  EVERY Quality of Life location they have now loses money, including the zoo.  Even though local soccer people have finally taken it on themselves to […]

Local H1B Employers

By:  Diane Benjamin Sponsors are needed to come to this country on an H1B Visa.  I found a website that shows a lot of information about companies and the number of H1B holders in cities and states.  These are employers bringing in people legally. There is a ton of information on this site like this […]

Since Congress doesn’t want the wall . . .

A triple amputee veterans decided We The People should have a voice since Congress barely cares about illegal immigration. He started a GoFundMe site to raise money to build the wall on December 16th.  Right now it has raised close to $5.3 million! Read his story a track the progress here:    https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall?pc=fb_dn_cpgntopnavlarge_r&rcid=r01-154532926709-8228101102904991&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fb_dn_cpgntopnavlarge_r&fbclid=IwAR0mKlmHM8uO77_lc5SX5lkIK39oYyS9SBONMgNVWBOyvX7UJAgNNwIthxo
