Is OSF still Catholic?

By: Diane Benjamin See the email below. OSF is demanding all employees be vaccinated. They will no longer recognize a religious or pregnancy deferral for not complying with Pritzker. Question 1 for OSF: Why do you take (illegal) executive orders about healthcare from a morbidly obese governor? Pritzker knows being morbidly obese puts him in […]

Maskless in Normal, ignore Pritzker!

By: Diane Benjamin It wasn’t that long ago when the Town of Normal was punishing businesses with fines who were just trying to stay open. Hypocrisy now should encourage those businesses to file lawsuits against Chris Koos and Pam Reece because TWICE in the past few weeks they have proven that Executive Orders and internal […]

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 […]

Drum roll please . . presenting Karyn Smith

By: Diane Benjamin See 25:19 Karyn Smith is reading a prepared statement during Trustee comments. The topic is COVID and the newly announced proclamations from Pritzker. Having swallowed all of the democrat talking points, she goes on and on about keeping people safe. She thinks the virus has to be under control before people will […]

Normal: Your elected officials are immaterial

By:  Diane Benjamin Executive Orders used to at least be signed by Chris Koos.  No longer! Now the Town of Normal is issuing edicts from on high as press releases. Your elected Council Trustees had NO input and were not asked to agree or disagree. This is the latest:    https://www.normal.org/DocumentCenter/View/16779/Outdoor-Dining-Press-Release—extension-announced-through-November-1 Businesses affected by actions […]

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 […]

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 […]

Koos has no power, neither does the Governor

By:  Diane Benjamin READ all the way to the bottom please! The tyrants keeping Illinois shut down have no basis in the law to continue doing so. Start with Chris Koos – his original ordinance #5804:    http://www.normal.org/DocumentCenter/View/16424/ORD-5824—Emergency-Authorization—032320?bidId= That ordinance references: Koos is basing his Executive Powers on the Governor’s Executive Order.  What does the […]

BREAKING – Illinois Appellate Prosecutor Chief Deputy Director Memorandum VERY problematic for Governor Pritzker

From the Edgar County Watchdogs: We are of the opinion the Memorandum we obtained today is a game-changer for Illinois and a clear shot across the bow of Governor Pritzker’s Executive Order. From day one we have questioned the overreach and legality of elements of the Executive Orders and now it appears all of our positions have […]
