The business killer in Bloomington

By: Diane Benjamin Why would any business decide to locate in Bloomington when a member of the City Council retweeted this: Black Lives Matter lost all credibility when they bailed looters out of jail. People of all political persuasions know theft and destruction of other people’s property is wrong. Looks like Jenn thinks it’s fine. […]

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 […]

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 […]

More on BLM and local Democrats

By:  Diane Benjamin The Facebook discussion between 2 local BLM activists and two members of the local democrat party is worth your time.  See it on the McLean county Democrats Facebook page. Ky Ajayi of BLM made one comparison I find silly, but he was dead serious.  He compared abolitionists to the people who today […]

Ward 5 – they are coming for you next

By:  Diane Benjamin The local elections next year could give the radicals complete control of Bloomington.  Right now they have 2 out of 9 seats, 5  and the mayor up for election next April.  The radicals will be running candidates, all they need is 3 more seats to turn the Bloomington into their Marxist utopia. […]

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 […]

She is the founder of […]

Ironic, isn’t it?

By:  Diane Benjamin One of the demands of Black Lives Matter is to end cash bail.  They want the jails cleared out of murder suspects, armed robbery suspects, rapists – etc.  They don’t think it’s fair for minorities to sit in jail because they can’t afford bail when they haven’t been convicted of anything. That […]

Bloomington Pandering?

By:  Diane Benjamin The left is famous for “never enough”.  Whatever goals they achieve they want more.  The local police were supposedly so bad a civilian police review board (PSCRB) had to be established.  It took forever before they investigated one complaint – they determined the police did nothing wrong.  They had meetings, printed flyers […]

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 […]

BLM, Violence, and Sonny Garcia

By:  Diane Benjamin Officers covering for other officers they know shouldn’t carry a badge and a gun is what led to the death of a black man in Minneapolis.  I doubt there is any person in America that condones what the 4 officers did, especially the three without their knee on the guys neck who […]

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 […]

The Cannabis Campaign

By:  Diane Benjamin One candidate for State office showed up at both the Bloomington City Council meeting and the County Board meeting this week.  Evidently she is running her campaign on cannabis: The Council sign says:  Support on-site consumption.  She must be going for the Jenn Carrillo vote! She is running in the 88th.  Her […]

Jenn becomes immaterial by choice

By:  Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo is giving taxpayers a close up look at what tyranny looks like.  If you don’t agree with her agenda, she will call out her minions.  Her buddies at Black Lives Matter called the Council racist:  BLM statement Quote:    And when you knowingly and continuously pass policies that perpetuate harm […]

All Springfield […]

Black Lives Matter – Christmas Bail

By:  Diane Benjamin The Local Black Lives Matter group is raising money to get somebody out of jail for Christmas.  Remember when they did the Mother’s Day and Father’s bailouts? Maybe it’s just me, but keeping people from getting arrested by teaching them laws matter would be a better approach.  Everything in stores is more […]

Update: Mother’s Day Bail

She wasn’t allowed to be released without bail because she had an arrest in Springfield for retail theft that will go to trial in June.  It wasn’t because she was black.  See that arrest information here:   http://records.sangamoncountycircuitclerk.org/sccc/DisplayDocket.sc By:  Diane Benjamin Black Lives Matter Blono has been raising money to bail a mother out of jail […]

When Radicals run your Town:

By:  Diane Benjamin If Normal passes the Welcoming Ordinance tonight, they are empowering leftist radicals. Bloomington and Normal are chasing people out of town by giving into radicals.  It started with citizens second guessing the actions of the police.  It continues with laws ignored via a Welcoming Ordinance.  Now they think they should pick the next […]
