Critical Race Theory at ISU?

By: Diane Benjamin President Trump banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory in all Federal Departments because it’s Marxist ideology. It is meant to destroy social norms to create an undefined utopia. It rejects the Declaration of Independence, the teachings of Martin Luther King, and of course Christianity. It destroys without ever saying what it […]

Early Voting starts tomorrow. DON’T!

by: Diane Benjamin In my opinion voting in September for an election in November is lamebrained, dim-witted, and unintelligent. There will be “October surprises”, the presidential debates don’t even start until next week. The ONLY reason to vote now is to pretend you investigated all the candidates and have determined which ones represent your values. […]

The Jenn’s running for the County Board

By: Diane Benjamin How Jenn describes herself on her Alderman Facebook page: How FIVE candidates running for the County Board describe themselves: Notice anything? All Jenn progressives The Democrat Party left you. Progressives want to run your life, they don’t think you are smart enough to run your own. Of course they think you are […]

Back the Blue because some in town don’t!

By: Diane Benjamin Today: This announcement brought out the police haters in the Hispanic wing of Black Lives Matter: Roy countered with this: September 27th: Connie Beard, Chairman of the McLean County Republicans announced that on Sunday September 27 the County is invited to honor McLean County  First Responders by attending a rally at the […]

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 […]

Back the Blue Rally pics

These are just to give you and idea of how many people attended. counting was difficult because people were social distancing. Black Lives Matter only had a handful of people trying to disrupt the rally, we were too far away to hear them. h/t John Boch – Guns Save Life for these pics. h/t Sonny […]

Tomorrow: Back the Police!

There are more people who support the police than don’t. Those who do MUST show up at the rally tomorrow. Rep Darren Bailey will be speaking. Today he is at a rally in Charleston. The loony left is disrupting the event. Tomorrow they will be across the street, security will keep them out of the […]

Before anyone considers a mask ordinance – READ this

By: Diane Benjamin I’ve recently done two stories about the City of Leroy considering a mask ordinance. The Council voted it down. See this link: https://blnnews.com/2020/08/18/leroy-dont-trust-your-mayor/ A resident of Leroy received many documents by FOIA. I found this letter from the Police Chief Jason Williamson really good. All units of government considering torturing all their […]

Koos legacy will be tyranny

By: Diane Benjamin If the massive debt and failure to listen to citizens isn’t bad enough, ISU students will remember Mayor Chris Koos thinks he’s a doctor with the right to spew edicts that must be obeyed. He doesn’t, but that doesn’t stop him or the compliant businesses owners terrified of this tyrant. Only the […]

Will Incompetence Run Vote By Mail?

By:  Diane Benjamin We are headed for the worst election in the history of this country.  Vote By Mail will be fraught with errors, outright fraud, and incompetence by election authorities.  Irregularities will allow people who want reek havoc easily do it.  China and Russia can’t possibly do more damage than Vote By Mail will. […]

Where do campaign contributions go?

By:  Diane Benjamin I’m not going to check the Facebook or websites of every Democrat running for election, but I checked a few. If you contribute to any of the below why is ActBlue getting the money?  That’s the same organization contributions to Black Lives Matter go to.  We do know those contributions don’t end […]

Justice stats – meeting tomorrow

By:  Diane Benjamin The County Board Justice Committee meets tomorrow.  https://www.mcleancountyil.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/6792 The agenda report is packed with information, below are just snippets. Here’s a stat that I can make sound really scary – watch the media, this is what they do. During the second quarter of 2020 (April-May-June) Juvenile cases of Abuse and Neglect were […]

League of Women Voters are too biased to participate in elections

By:  Diane Benjamin Undo police scrutiny?  Poor investigative techniques?  Does the LWV want the police defunded to go along with their left wing bias? Obviously nobody at the LWV bothered to listen to the audio of the body cam: Short version:  https://blnnews.com/2020/07/24/breaking-in-support-of-art-and-camille-taylor-2-0-the-un-redacted-truth/ Entire Interview:  https://blnnews.com/2020/07/24/in-support-of-art-and-camille-taylor-3-0-the-entire-police-interview/ Thanks for proving you are democrats or worse LWV.  We […]

Voting by Mail? I’m not!

By:  Diane Benjamin Last week the Kathy Michael, McLean County Clerk, and Tim Mitchell, Executive Director of the Bloomington Election Commission, issued a joint Press Release. Note:  If you had voted to abolish BEC when you had the chance there wouldn’t be TWO now!  (No, I’m not letting you forget) You will be getting a […]

Normal: Your elected officials are immaterial

By:  Diane Benjamin Executive Orders used to at least be signed by Chris Koos.  No longer! Now the Town of Normal is issuing edicts from on high as press releases. Your elected Council Trustees had NO input and were not asked to agree or disagree. This is the latest:    https://www.normal.org/DocumentCenter/View/16779/Outdoor-Dining-Press-Release—extension-announced-through-November-1 Businesses affected by actions […]

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 […]

Turning McLean County Blue

By:  Diane Benjamin Even the democrats know Joe Biden is not inspiring anybody.  When he does come out of his basement he speaks incoherently.  He’s been in DC for 50 years and now claims he can fix all the countries problems that he has ignored for 5 decades, 8 years as vice-president.  The party is […]

Normal will violate the law Monday night

By:  Diane Benjamin The only reason units of government have been allowed to meet on-line instead of in person is because of Gov. Pritzker’s Executive orders:  https://www2.illinois.gov/Pages/government/execorders/executive-orders.aspx#y2020 Everything on that page was ruled illegal last Thursday! Pritzker’s authority to act like a dictator expired 30 days after his first proclamation.  He made NO attempt to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Mom and Dad aren’t necessary

By:  Diane Benjamin Pretending kids don’t need their Mom AND Dad raising them together explains many societal problems.  A mom can’t teach a boy how to be a man.  Girls need their dads to teach them how men are suppose to treat them.  Without these role models as they mature it’s a miracle if paths […]

1st Public School District fights back

By:  Diane Benjamin Hutsonville School District voted unanimously last night to hire Attorney Thomas DeVore for possible litigation.  The Board opposes the “Joint Directives” issued by Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) that include wearing masks, temperature checks, and occupancy limits. The Edgar County Watchdogs have video of […]

Pritzker loses, he likely won’t care

By:  Diane Benjamin When it was obvious a judge in Clay County was going to rule against Pritzker’s illegal orders in favor of State Rep Darren Bailey, Pritzker tried to get the case moved to Federal Court.  That judge stalled for weeks but ruled yesterday to send it back to Clay County. A hearing date […]
