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 […]

Letter to George Wendt

Dear George, You have been an invaluable asset to McLean County for MANY years. Your leadership has keep McLean County RED with common sense principles. But your health has been declining for a long time. Missing meetings is no longer an option the people of your district and the other Republicans deserve. George, you have […]

Democrats resort to fibs?

By: Diane Benjamin I wonder where at the County Board meeting anyone discussed taking the tablets away from the County inmates? Democrats told WGLT they did, of course it was printed without a fact check. https://www.wglt.org/local-news/2021-10-16/tussle-over-inmates-use-of-tablets-develops-at-mclean-county-jail I hope everyone is clear on this point: democrats favor inmates over taxpayers. They want TOU to pay for […]

Congrats County Board – the tablets got taken away

By: Diane Benjamin The $1000 payments to vaccinated employees was tabled without discussion: https://blnnews.com/2021/10/14/local-republicans-prove-their-worth/ The County has their own democrat who refuses to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. Hannah Beer: Every Democrat and three Republicans voted yesterday to table the jail contract for tablets. The inmates love them, today they don’t have them. The […]

The data IDPH doesn’t want you to see

By: Diane Benjamin I previously reported information about hospitalizations and deaths in vaccinated people was not available for Illinois. https://blnnews.com/2021/09/23/idph-foia-covid-data/ Now it is, but it is deceptively reported by IDPH. https://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine/vaccine-breakthrough.html The bottom of the page has CUMULATIVE numbers of hospitalizations and deaths in COVID vaccinated people. Who cares about cumulative? I don’t. I download […]

Local Republicans prove their worth

By: Diane Benjamin The McLean Country Board Executive Committee met Monday. Members: Every one of them is Republican except for Laurie Wollrab. Josh Barnett is questionable at best even though he claims to be Republican. I think one person were absent, I don’t know who since role wasn’t called. This group is capable of holding […]

Update: Will anybody notice the local suicides?

Nobody asked any questions at the Justice Committee meeting! By: Diane Benjamin The County Justice Committee is meeting today. See the documentation here: https://mcleancountyil.gov/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/8339 The coroner’s report is included every month, year to date numbers aren’t. See PDF page 5 for August 2021 numbers. I had to chart the suicides by looking at reports for […]

Things you need to know:

By: Diane Benjamin 1) 2 more things from Bloomington Council meeting last Monday: Tim Gleason thinks he has to obey whatever Pritzker utters, of course getting money is involved. Gleason is going to require all fire department personnel to be vaccinated or test twice a week. No mention of people who have had COVID and […]

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 […]

8,000,000

By: Diane Benjamin Happy Constitution Day. Find a copy and read it before all copies are required to be burned! Thanks to you readers I crossed 8,000,000 page views today. It was less than 2 years ago when I got to 5,000,000. That 89,811 views is for one day. It was a story that went […]

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 […]

Unit 5 School starts in 6 days

By: Diane Benjamin Press Release: ATTENTION:We do not elect masters to tell us what to do. We elect those to represent us in service to The People, by The People, and for The People.

So, who is lying?

By: Diane Benjamin Below is a a clip from the Normal Town Council meeting 8/2/21. Chris Koos thinks GIS could be wrong after Stan Nord produced a map clearly showing Rivian does not own all of the property adjacent to Electric Avenue. Why do taxpayers fund GIS if it isn’t accurate Chris? Why should anybody […]

Unit 5 union tax return

By: Diane Benjamin Unlike District 87’s handwritten return, Unit 5’s Teachers Union paid a CPA firm to do theirs. I have a 2020 return for them: https://projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/display_990/371245404/04_2021_prefixes_37-38%2F371245404_202006_990EO_2021042217989367 First thing to notice is they don’t take in near as much money from members as District 87 (2006: $187,804): Note the last line above: $319,389 on hand […]

Unmask the kids-McLean County

By: Diane Benjamin The McLean County Board Health Committee met yesterday. One mother gave Public Comment. Julie Bakewell presented the Resolution below to Committee Chair Susan Schafer. The Resolution is a revised version of one another Illinois County has already passed. Julie spells out why Pritzker’s Executive Orders are meaningless and IDPH and ISBE have […]

Vaccinate kids?

By: Diane Benjamin As of 6/29/2021 no one was in the hospital for COVID. Deaths by age in McLean County show ZERO deaths for people under 30, why risk giving an experimental vaccine to children who aren’t in any danger of dying? Positivity rated is now .002. That means if 10,000 people get tested only […]

Proof 1619 Project isn’t history

By: Diane Benjamin Local school Districts claim the 1619 Project isn’t being taught. Obviously it is since numerous students mentioned it at the District 87 School Board meeting. See this article, the author even admits it isn’t history: https://legalinsurrection.com/2020/07/1619-project-creator-admits-it-is-not-a-history-but-a-fight-to-control-the-national-narrative/ Nikole Hannah-Jones won a Pulitzer prize for her fiction however.

What should happen to teachers who publicly state they will Violate the Law?

By: Diane Benjamin This Unit 5 teacher did: He supposedly teaches music. I wonder how Critical Race Theory fits into music?

Bloomington tonight, ridiculous

By: Diane Benjamin http://bloomingtonil.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1118&Inline=True In a perfect example of government believing individuals have no responsibility but government does: The McLean County Regional Planning Commission will make a presentation that includes this: Eliminate fatalities and life-changing injuries from our transportation system by 2030 That is the most absurd statement ever written with tax dollars. I can’t […]

SB 818 – Sexualizing your kids

By: Diane Benjamin This bill has passed both houses in Springfield by democrats only and is waiting for Pritzker’s signature. Call his office and demand he veto it: 217-782-6830.   Why? Because this is what it does: Unfunded mandate that destroys local control over curriculum Sexually grooms young children by introducing sensitive and inappropriate topics […]

Smile! A feel good story

By: Diane Benjamin Last year a video was posted to Facebook by the mom of an autistic young man who turned 18.

The family hadn’t […]

Is your school teaching Marxist Social Justice?

By: Diane Benjamin Judicial Watch obtained the below from a Maryland public school. https://www.judicialwatch.org/investigative-bulletin/maga-under-fire-radical-racists-storm-american-education/ Since public schools are controlled by the left, you need to find out if this is being taught to your kids: If you voted for Trump, you are a racist. If you deny white privilege, you are a racist. If you […]

If you like Dan Brady you can’t keep Dan Brady

By: Diane Benjamin The new district maps are now available. Of course the Democrats drew them behind closed doors with zero transparency. Anybody hear the local democrats objecting like they did to the County District maps? Primary elections will be moved to June 28. It makes no sense to hold a primary 7-8 months before […]

For Parents who care what their kids are taught:

By: Diane Benjamin Remember last summer when statues were being torn down by BLM and Antifa? Did you wonder why Abraham Lincoln statues were a target? It sounds like we found out because of public comment at last night’s District 87 Board meeting. Your kids are being taught Lincoln didn’t free anyone and this country […]
