Enough of Josh Barnett!

By: Diane Benjamin I’ve never gone to County Board member Josh Barnett’s Twitter page until today. He has me blocked! Isn’t that special! Is it because this Republican hangs out with the Democrats on Twitter? You might have forgotten Jeff Crabill is on the Bloomington City Council only because Barnett claimed he was leaving the […]

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 […]
