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 […]

Illinois needs to tax retirement income

By:  Diane Benjamin Those aren’t my words – Democrat Illinois Treasurer Mike Frerichs stated that.  Of course he claims only the “high income” earners will be the victims. Since Democrats don’t believe in learning from history, somebody should tell them that people don’t hang around a state to get their money stolen by taxation.  Every […]

Never forget this:

By:  Diane Benjamin Everything happening in the country right now has to do with ONE thing: Presidential Election Democrats have a candidate that doesn’t know where he is most of the time.  They don’t want you to know who will be running the country – it won’t be Biden. Black Lives Matter is just an […]

Nikita: Want to change your post now?

By:  Diane Benjamin The head of the McLean County Democrat Party doesn’t know a boycott is illegal in Illinois.  Committing a felony is a non-issue?  Now you know why laws don’t matter in Illinois – the Democrats have been running the State for decades.  To be fair, I don’t think Connie Beard knew either or […]

That’s a felony Karla Marx

By:  Diane Benjamin Obviously the name is a fake, the police need to find out the real name.  WGLT reported she is afraid for her safety if her real name was known – she should be afraid.  Jail isn’t a fun place I hear. What did she do?  She admitted to creating the “boycott list”.  […]

Rivian News

By:  Diane Benjamin Yesterday an on-line story claimed Rivian was consolidating all operations in Irvine California.  It implied production was moving there too.  That story was not correct. What Rivian is doing is moving engineering to California, they will be moving employees from Michigan to Irving.  Some other employees will be transferred to the Normal […]

Democrats vrs Black Lives Matter

By:  Diane Benjamin The City of Bloomington Council meeting will reconvene Wednesday at 7:30.  Technical difficulties were experienced with the Live Stream.  Instead of having the meeting anyway and posting video today, the meeting was rescheduled. That was a good thing because it allowed Jenn Carrillo and Jeff Crabill to comment on a Live event […]

BLM just lost all credibility

By:  Diane Benjamin Instead of condemning looters, vandals, and other behavior that can not be tolerated in a civil society, Black Lives Mater BloNo celebrates with their “comrades”: Black Lives Matter had a message worth discussing, they now have no credibility.  Violence and destruction of local businesses makes you immaterial especially when you agree with […]

Julie Hile’s contract

By: Diane Benjamin Normal paid the McLean County Regional Planning Commission $54,000 as their last meeting:  https://blnnews.com/2020/06/13/normals-asininity/ I previously wrote about Julie Hile’s involvement with the MCRPC here:  https://blnnews.com/2020/05/21/progressive-julie-hile/ I received a copy of the contract Hile signed with the MCRPC.  See it here:  Vision_Zero_Contract-HG-20190619_(Final_Executed)_redacted Excerpts: The contract was sign in July of 2019, so […]

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 […]

Don’t forget who won’t let you work

By:  Diane Benjamin Indiana is open.  I know locals who have driven to the Beef House right across the border to sit down for a good meal. Iowa is open for full capacity in-restaurant dining. Wisconsin is open after their Supreme Court ruled the governor’s actions illegal. Illinois has Pritzker’s boot on everybody’s neck, he […]

We are not a racist country!

By:  Diane Benjamin How did Barack Obama get elected twice if this country is racist? This video is people most will know talking about racism.  Where are the local black  people standing up to the anarchists in Black Lives Matter?  Yesterday’s event wasn’t led by blacks.  Watch the video, it explains why.   Check out […]

Jessica McKnight needs to read the law!

By:  Diane Benjamin The McLean County Health Department thinks they have the right to shut down businesses.  They don’t.  Pritzker’s expired executive orders are meaningless – they aren’t LAW.  The only authority the Health Department has comes from the courts.  Any pieces of paper they hand out mean nothing. McKnight just closed down the pool […]

Chicago logic

By:  Diane Benjamin The comment below was made by a person with an IP address in Chicago: FACTS: MLK was opposed to violence of any kind.  He trained the protesters who walked with him not to respond to anyone harassing them.  If any got arrested for failing to follow his instructions he refused to bail […]

Jeff Crabill and State Farm

By:  Diane Benjamin State Farm is currently conducting employee training about participating in protests.  The will fire any employee involved in what they consider uncivil protests.  State Farm has a financial stake since they insure many people and businesses. Jeff Crabill is a lawyer for State Farm.  Even though there was a large gathering yesterday […]

What you get when good people don’t run and the rest don’t vote

conservativereview.com/justice-george-floyd-7000-black-homicide-victims-every-year Systematic racism does not exist in America as proven above.  There are individual incidents that require the law to hold all accountable.  We are a nation of laws not knee- jerk reactions to move an agenda forward. This is the same guy wanting dangerous criminals released from the County jail so they don’t get […]

Punting to a Tyrant

By:  Diane Benjamin Somewhere I heard it stated:  Illinois will open when the people want it to open.  Your elected officials aren’t going to help, they are bowing before Pritzker’s tyrannical rule. The County Board debated for two hours last night.  Peoria and the other cities who put together the HOI plan have all backed […]

Update:  County Board – 5:30 today

No decisions were made.  After almost two hours of many thinking they have the right to violate the rights of people and businesses, a motion was made to table.  Some republicans voted with the Democrats not to make a decision. Meanwhile, the surrounding states are open. ______________________ By:  Diane Benjamin Bloomington and Normal have no […]

COVID-19 voids HIPAA

By:  Diane Benjamin Did you know if you test positive for COVID your rights to privacy will be violated? Even though the McLean County Health Department says to stay home until you have been fever free for 3 days and at least 7 days since symptoms first appeared, Metcom and Bloomington Dispatch will know about […]

Progressive Julie Hile

By:  Diane Benjamin Ever feel like government is conspiring behind your back to force their agenda on you? They are! Julie Hile is a progressive.  She knows how you should live your life, your opinions are immaterial.  All progressives want to reshape daily life to whatever their vision is.  Hile has a long history of […]

Resignation letter only a few saw

By:  Diane Benjamin I wrote this story about the McLean County Nursing Home in April:  https://blnnews.com/2020/04/27/mclean-county-nursing-home-fact-left-out/ It recaps what I knew at the time about the long time administrator resigning.  Yesterday I finally received my FOIA.  It contained the resignation letter submitted by Cindy Wegner. As stated in the previous article, the County Health Committee […]

Take Action Now: Tyrant Pritzker!

By:  Diane Benjamin Dictator Pritzker is playing politics while Illinois burns.  It is obvious now the shutdown in Illinois was never about bending the curve.  It is about trashing the economy in hopes of a huge bailout while crushing small businesses and people deemed non-essential. Congratulation democrats – you elected a dictator.   Proof:  Raising taxes […]

Is Pritzker making money off COVID?

By:  Diane Benjamin This story is all over Facebook.  Since all of you aren’t on Facebook, I NEED to post it. This is just one source reporting, the media might be forced to report: Illinois: Governor Pritzker backed companies profiting off of COVID-19 https://www.mom-at-arms.com/post/illinois-governor-pritzker-backed-companies-profiting-off-of-covid-19?fbclid=IwAR3DgCylEubfU92NzJKtw6ofrcRmPams-rpK9sxrrd5NrdrxAHT7RQA7j7g Pritzker owns a company that makes and sells tests Pritzker owns […]
