Not a good idea to text at meetings

By: Diane Benjamin The Executive Committee of the McLean County Board met on January 11th. I received a tip about the meeting. First the members: The tip involved text messages sent by Democrat Laurie Wollrab to (fake) Republican Josh Barnett during the meeting. Barnett is part of the “Responsible Cities Pac” with the leftist elites: […]

The IL GOP will always be a minority

By: Diane Benjamin It is only a short time before McLean County will be taken over by Democrat Socialists. The Republicans are doing nothing to stop them. The GOP believes in working together. The local democratic socialists don’t want to work together, they want to control everything. McLean County will soon be run just like […]

Warning:

By: Diane Benjamin Do not attend upcoming state capitol protests. This article at the Gateway Pundit explains there is a national alert put out and it smells to me like a false flag or the next step of a playbook to make conservatives look violent and to take away firearms. It only takes a handful […]

What socialists do

By: Diane Benjamin The local (Democrat) socialists pretend they support the people. They don’t – they only want power. They will use that power to do what socialists always do, punish their enemies. They don’t want to learn or have discussions. They demand you comply or be destroyed. I’m sure you’ve noticed that tactic by […]

Pick a Side

I could post many examples that prove we are in a fight between Good and Evil. Evil is attacking the Bill of Rights and Freedom. If you want to stand with patriots, keep reading. If you want to be on the email list for the group below, email  info@ilpac.org. Illinois Conservative Union is the group […]

Fly on the Wall: Wrong McCarthy

Flying around McLean County Administration I overheard they aren’t on board with divvying up the cost of Normal’s recycling drop boxes 3 ways. Of course Trustee Kevin McCarthy believed the utterings of the City Manager saying an agreement was close. It isn’t. Maybe Pam Reece can explain herself. It will be similar to her claiming […]

Good News

By: Diane Benjamin Town of Normal employees didn’t get Christmas gift cards this year. In 2017 Normal spent $25,048, in 2018 $25,040, in 2019 $23,920. https://blnnews.com/2017/11/20/sit-down-normal/ https://blnnews.com/2018/11/16/normal-taxing-again/ https://blnnews.com/2019/12/23/normal-giving-away-your-money-2/ This year is what citizens who aren’t allowed to work by their government expect: $0.00. More Good News: The far left isn’t afraid to tell you what […]

Mickey (using his name since it has been in the media before) can spend 6 weeks in the summer and spring break in Illinois. Mom can […]

Friday History: Good News

By: Diane Benjamin The County roads by me are great. Unlike driving in Bloomington and Normal where dodging potholes is a sport and riding a horse would be smoother, the County knows they don’t exist to be developers or entertainers. Where my road meets Leroy-Lexington blacktop a large hole was developing. Turning north either requires […]

Update: Parents: Your forum

I’m going to add emailed comments at the bottom instead of posting them as a comment. By: Diane Benjamin Kids are suffering from closed schools. Parents are suffering and watching their kids fall behind. Meanwhile, Tri-Valley is holding in-person classes while Unit 5 and District 87 are closed. The Unit 5 school board had the […]

I Can Keep secrets!

By: Diane Benjamin I’ve got more sources than I can remember. I have never revealed where I get information! That brings me to an anonymous letter I received in the mail today. All I will say is it involves McLean County. The writer didn’t give me enough to work with. I need a list of […]

Remember Judge Casey Costigan

By: Diane Benjamin The information below was reported to me by a reliable source. Defendant: Mr. Brown shot through a door at his wife and kids in 2017. Today Judge Costigan let him off with time served. He was not able to post bail of $30,000 and has been in jail since his arrest. The […]

Buried by Unit 5

By: Diane Benjamin I was contacted by a citizen pertaining to the treatment of a student. The student has an IEP – Individualized Education Program. Since schools are required by law to provide an education, IEP’s are legal documents that provide rights and protections for parents and students needing special education so they can thrive […]

Thanksgiving 1789

T That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks H both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed  A acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal […]

Renner: State the LAW

By: Diane Benjamin Tari Renner started last night’s meeting with a Small Business Saturday proclamation. I wonder how he explains reports on social media of the POLICE being used to close down restaurants in town that refused to stop in-door dining. (Possibly more on that one in the future) Reports are the police told the […]

Tari: Forget your oath of office?

By: Diane Benjamin Vowing to uphold both the Constitution of the United States and the State of Illinois is beyond the left. Tari Renner proved that again at the emergency Liquor Commission meeting yesterday. See the short video clip as reported by Cities 92.9: https://www.cities929.com/2020/11/21/bloomington-mayor-renner-whines-at-liquor-commission-hearing-about-the-states-attorney/?fbclid=IwAR3IAg490VjyNCDqMzrrp8xgykB7fmsDgfxZdlbgmHMyl4m6kPGO9oEyrO0 Tari expect State Attorney Don Knapp to enforce Pritzker Executive […]

Voting for Democrats costs you money!

By: Diane Benjamin It should be obvious, but evidently too many people think government needs your money, so they vote democrat. How many tax increases does the State of Illinois have to hand you before you figure out government is working for itself – NOT YOU? Illinois Democrats have no intention of fixing the unaffordable […]

History Friday

By: Diane Benjamin This is something I have wanted to do for a LONG time. We aren’t being taught our founding documents which allows threats freedom. We have people attempting to steal liberty and too many who don’t understand why America is different from every other country. Here we believe in the individual not some […]

If you voted Democrat

By: Diane Benjamin The website below shows what you voted for. Facebook will not allow me to post it. That should tell you all you need to know. The left always accuses the right of what THEY have done and will do. If this doesn’t terrify you, the left has successful indoctrinated you to hate […]

Renner’s letter to Pritzker

by: Diane Benjamin The establishments readers have said are staying open: Times Past Inn, Tony’s Diner, and Jacks. Let me know if you hear of others. Below is the letter Mayor Tari Renner sent to Illinois’s one-term governor. Complaints will be referred to the McLean County Health Department who must prove in court the establishment […]

Locals are resisting Pritzker

By: Diane Benjamin I have been informed “a bunch” of local restaurants and bars will not close today to in-door dining. They have attorney Thomas Devore on standby if any level of government attempts to interfere with their rights. If you are one or know who is open, please comment below. I predict an increase […]

Want to lower the positivity rate?

By: Diane Benjamin Who is currently being tested for COVID? Lots of people who think they might have it and people scheduled for surgery surgery. Of course testing sick people means the percent positive goes up. Decisions based on testing mostly people who think they might have COVID isn’t science! If mostly sick people are […]

Who is the real Rachel Lund?

By: Diane Benjamin Democrat Lund is running for the McLean County Board in District 5 against John McIntyre (Republublican) and Joann Litwiller (Libertarian) Lund cleaned up her social media sites before declaring her candidacy, but some of her posts were captured before that happened. Read below before you vote for “Nasty Woman”. Lund isn’t a […]

We are currently testing over 1 million people a day. It also means that only 2.7% of those who tested positive have died. Joe Biden is campaigning on COVID. He […]

Since Bloomington staff won’t just answer a simple question . . .

By: Diane Benjamin It was pretty easy to determine the COUNTY was paying for the Bloomington Election Commission for this story: https://blnnews.com/2020/10/08/you-cant-make-this-stuff-up-bloomington-election-commission/ I emailed the Bloomington Finance Director just to verify and didn’t receive a response until yesterday: That is 7 days after I wrote the story! This is the document they sent, you have […]
