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 […]

Before you demand police reforms:

By:  Diane Benjamin Before supporting “No Cash Bail” or other reforms to local policing, see who currently resides in the County jail.  These are only the worst accused and convicted offenders.  The jail population has increased recently due to felony looting and destruction of property: 2019 CF 416  Cynthia Baker – convicted of murder, not […]

CIRBN and the Town of Normal

By:  Diane Benjamin The latest tax return from CIRBN available is from 2017.  They file as a non-profit.  This is a summary:  https://projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/organizations/461304666 The Town of Normal Comprehensive Plan done by the McLean County Regional Planning Commission in 2017 mentions CIRBN 10 times.  https://mcplan.org/file/227/Elements_Economic%20Vitality.pdf PDF page 9 shows CIRBN as a “positive contributor” and a […]

As seen on Facebook: Socialists

By:  Diane Benjamin Democrat socialists are just regular socialists.  They want to shut down speech they don’t agree with.  The local clowns are no different.  Socialism is about government control and taking away your rights.  Of course it won’t apply to “their” rights. Please nominate Bernie Sanders so Trump can crush him.  Note how the […]

Dickie Durbin at ISU

By:  Diane Benjamin The video of Dickie at ISU this morning is on Nikita Richards Facebook page.  He was here to endorse her.  The college Democrats plus Erik Rankin were there too.  The crowd didn’t look overwhelming. Dickie came, in his own words, to support a Democrat “traffic cop” to elections.  Yes, Dickie, we’ve seen […]

Tari’s buddies

By:  Diane Benjamin With all the heat Tari Renner has been feeling now for months, was last night’s packed chamber wanting a “Welcoming Ordinance” his way to get some love? Or was it a way to divide people based on ideology?  Is the real goal to unravel the threads of a civilized society by turning […]

Way too busy again

By:  Diane Benjamin I won’t have time for a while to work for free, so here’s some stories you might not have seen: 1) FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information. According to an interview […]

Did you pay an ObamaCare fine?

By:  Diane Benjamin The media has done a great job telling people if you don’t have health insurance under ObamaCare, then you have to pay a fine. They are also wrong! The IRS isn’t going to bill you.  It isn’t authorized in the law.  All the IRS can do is steal your refund. Don’t want to […]

Global Warming? Sure

By: Diane Benjamin In the 70’s, the talking points were Global Cooling.  Then temperatures increased and the talking points went to Global Warming.  Then temperatures cooled again, so now it’s Climate Change. No the science isn’t settled.  No 90%+ scientists do not agree.  No, you can not trust people who profit from towing whatever line […]

Local cage-liner not worth your time

By:  Diane Benjamin I was really expecting today’s story:  Obama college plan gets high marks in Illinois to be Associated Press, but alas a lee.net (parent company) reporter wrote it.  It regurgitated State officials talking points instead of reporting.  It going to be GREAT!.  Silly me, I expected more. Obama wants to “grant” two years […]

Stop Obama’s Amnesty

Yes, calling DC does scare the GOP – especially when this information goes to MILLIONS of Americans.  If you want to stop Obama’s executive order, call now! Call your Representative and Senators and tell them that any measure funding the government must cut off spending for President Obama’s amnesty. Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 You can […]

No joke: Eighteen

By:  Diane Benjamin Obviously another lie, add it to the list. Over Thanksgiving the country hit $18 Trillion in debt – up over 70% under Obama. Just paying the interest is sucking money from the economy.  Interest rates are now low, what happens when they increase? State and local governments can’t wait to grab Federal […]

Fly on the Wall: Pantagraph

Today I saw a “cartoon” on the Opinion page.  This is why old media is DEAD! The cartoon apparently mocks the people blocking the Paycheck Fairness Act being pushed by Obama. Apparently the media no longer fact checks the President’s speeches.  It’s been illegal since the 1963 Equal Pay Act to pay men and women […]

Fly on the Wall: Ukraine

Have you seen the news coverage?  Citizens are in the streets protesting because their leadership wants to partner with Russia instead of Europe.  They demand Freedom, not being under Russia’s thumb. Have you noticed how they are fighting back?  Burning tires in the streets to stop the police and throwing rocks and bricks. They made […]

It will result in fewer knee replacements, hip replacements, angioplasty, bypass surgery and cataract operations. These are the five procedures that have transformed aging for older […]

Think the IRS isn’t still attacking Obama critics?

I wrote previously about C Steven Tucker and the IRS:  https://blnnews.com/2013/11/29/irs-auditing-2-men-who-spoke-against-obamacare/ IRS Goes After Obamacare Whistleblowers:  An Interview with C. Steven Tucker By Arlen Williams This is an update published today in American Thinker:  http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/12/irs_goes_after_obamacare_whistleblowers_an_interview_with_c_steven_tucker.html Excerpts: By now, the news has spread online of the IRS audit notices sent to two Obamacare whistleblowers. On November 25th, cancer victim […]

House subcommittee: Obamacare’s $300 billion Medicare Advantage raid will hurt seniors next year

Obamacare “raided” $300 billion for Medicare Advantage and seniors will begin feeling the cuts next year, according to an analysis Tuesday by the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee. Obamacare took $700 billion from Medicare and $300 billion from Medicare Advantage alone for its own funding, according to the subcommittee. The cuts to Medicare Advantage […]

5 Minutes of testimony YOU need to hear

  Expert Testifies to Congress that Obama’s ‘Ignoring Laws’ Could Lead to Overthrow of Government   by Noah Rothman See the video here:  http://nation.foxnews.com/2013/12/03/expert-testifies-congress-obama%E2%80%99s-%E2%80%98ignoring-laws%E2%80%99-could-lead-overthrow-government During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert […]

Good News for America!

ABC’s 20/20 tonight is airing a Barbara Walters interview with the President and First Lady.  They are advertising the show on Facebook. Below are the comments made to the story so far.  It doesn’t look like ABC is going to get very good ratings: President Obama: ‘Nowhere to Go But Up’ abcnews.go.com Despite facing a […]

IRS Auditing 2 men who spoke against ObamaCare

BOTH got letters from the IRS on the SAME day!  Illinois’s own C. Steven Tucker, who got a cancer patients insurance re-instated,  is one of them – the cancer patient the other.  IRS is obviously still being used by the Obama administration as a weapon. CANCER PATIENT WHO SAYS OBAMACARE CANCELED HIS HEALTH INSURANCE NOW […]

Obama: Electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket

by Diane Benjamin Remember this video? Obama is eliminating cheap energy without Cap & Trade.  While virtually every government agency is trying to raise taxes, expenses for citizens are increasing on items we must purchase.  The middle class is being squeezed by fundamental transformation. Article from Illinois Country Living magazine:  http://icl.coop/cooperatives-prepared-long-term/ What the article doesn’t […]

Obama’s Disdain For The Constitution Means We Risk Losing Our Republic

Posted below is page 2.  Page 1 can be found here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2013/11/19/obamas-disdain-for-the-constitution-means-we-risk-losing-our-republic/ 11/19/2013 @ 8:00AM PAGE 2 OF 2 The direction in which Mr. Obama is taking us would make possible the following scenario. A Republican Congress is elected and repeals Obamacare over a Democratic President’s veto. The President refuses to enforce the repeal. The Supreme […]

Real example of ObamaCare cost increases

by:  Diane Benjamin The name of the benefits provider isn’t important, but you should know this is a non-profit insurance provider.  Stated in the Benefit Information notice is this: It’s been more than 5 years since co-payments were last increased for prescription drug benefits, and even longer for most deductible and out-of-pocket maximums. The notice […]

Preventing Stealth Euthanasia

by:  Diane Benjamin Yes death panels exist, and yes Obamacare takes $78 billion out of Medicare.  If you still don’t believe ObamaCare is meant to limit healthcare for the “non-contributing” members of society, then why would Benedictine University hold a conference on Preventing Stealth Euthanasia? Fundamental Transformation.  Die already!

Your future under ObamaCare

by:  Diane Benjamin This information was sent to me.  I blocked out the company name, it’s not important.  The Affordable Care Act affects everyone in America – get ready.  We were lied to by people who never read the bill.  I realize parts are difficult to read, but here’s the message:  “You will be paying more […]

Remember when Barack was cool?

Remember when his first campaign was the new model for campaigning through social media?  Well, he has lost it.  He sent the following email today, but according to the Illinois elections calendar, there are NO elections in Illinois tomorrow!  How many of his uniformed voters are scrambling tonight? Friend — Decisions are made by those […]

Barack is desperate!

This is an email I received.  Obama is possessed with hatred for the Koch Brothers, even though the money they spend is far less than left sympathizers like George Soros.  Read the email, then ask yourself “What happened to kids can stay on their parents insurance until they are 26”?  Then ask yourself how many […]

Obama, Congress Owe Snowden Thanks, and a Pardon

Note:  This is from a left-leaning site.  http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/obama_congress_owe_snowden_thanks_and_a_pardon_20131028 The comments to the article are worth reading. by:  Robert Scheer Now we know that even the president needs leaks from Edward Snowden to be fully informed about the dastardly acts of his own top spy agency. It was Snowden’s recent revelations that led Obama to order […]

Desperation at BarackObama.com

The website doesn’t work, the cost isn’t affordable, the penalty is MUCH less, the deductibles mean the insurance will probably never pay out a dime – but the people exposing the truth are “shady groups”? Erin Hannigan, BarackObama.com To Me   Today at 2:32 PM There are 17 million uninsured young Americans who are now eligible to […]
