Although the number of readers is WAY up, contributions aren’t. Because of that I am considering switching to a subscription website.  The cost would be minimal, maybe $5-$10 a month.  Stories would not be posted to Facebook, Twitter, and other sites like they are now. Another option is to have a premium site for people […]

81% Gas tax increase Monday!

Monday’s Lame Duck session of the Illinois General Assembly plans to hit you with a 30-cent increase (81% increase) in your gas taxes, making Illinois the highest priced gasoline in the nation.  And Democrats say that they are looking out for the “little guy!” . Some citizens will rally in the Capitol building 11:00 a.m. Monday Jan. […]

Meet David Krupa

Meet David Krupa and help him take out Mike Madigan’s General! I am sending this to my entire statewide email list and beyond.  And I am asking all of you to send this guy $10 to keep his fight going against the Madigan Machine. See how to contribute below. Here is the headline of the recent John […]

Say hello to Governor JB

By:  Diane Benjamin Bruce Rauner will not be able to recover.  In his acceptance speech he said Jeanne Ives ran a principled campaign.  He didn’t.  Illinois is much worse since Rauner has been governor, he doesn’t deserve 4 more years.  Besides the lies he told during the campaign, he is responsible for making Illinois a […]

Jeanne Ives here FRIDAY

Jeanne Ives will be in Bloomington for a Meet and Greet Friday at 4:30. She will be at the Law Offices of Stivers and Gramm – 820 E Grove St until 6:00 If she loses on March 20th – say hello to a Democrat Governor in November.  Rauner has destroyed what little credibility he had left. […]

If you are voting GOP . . .

Evidently the Republican judge who did sit on the Appellate Court Fourth Judicial District died in office.  His death did not allow another candidate to gather signatures to replace him. The GOP is asking you to write in Pete Cavanagh – don’t forget to blacken the circle in front of the blank line. If he […]

Bruce Rauner is a LIAR!

By:  Diane Benjamin I’m still running into people who have fallen for the lies the media is allowing Bruce Rauner to spew about Jeanne Ives! Ask yourself why she would run against Rauner if she is in Madigan’s pocket? Rauner gave Madigan everything he wanted: Income tax increase Illinois made a Sanctuary State taxpayer-funded abortions! […]

Media is destroying democracy! (Rauner)

By:  Diane Benjamin We aren’t a democracy, but I might as well use the language of the left.  It fits. It’s bad enough the Pantagraph refuses to do investigative reporting, but now the media is threatening to throw an election for MONEY. Cities 92.9 knows Bruce Rauner is lying in his endlessly running commercial claiming […]

Early Voting is SLOW – Yippy!

By:  Diane Benjamin I’m hearing early voting numbers are very low.  That’s a good thing!  There is LOTS of campaigning yet to do, voters need facts first.  The actual election isn’t until March 20th! Thanks to Bruce Rauner’s endless mailings filled with lies, Jeanne Ives now has name recognition across the state.  I can’t believe […]

Early Voting starts tomorrow!

By:  Diane Benjamin Early voting is nothing more than a ploy to get people to vote before they have facts.  It takes a long time to herd people to the polls who might not be so excited about voting.  Cue the Community Bus. Don’t do it! Lines for voting in a Primary are never long, […]

Nikita wanted a Democrat disenfranchised!

By:  Diane Benjamin If early voting had been started on February 8th, a Democrat running for Attorney General could have been disenfranchised.  Scott Drury won in court and will be on the ballot. How many early voters would not have voted for him because he might be kicked off the ballot?  How many people have […]

REALLY believe in Term Limits?

By:  Diane Benjamin Why do voters have to hold their noses when they vote in November? Why are the same people on the ballot election after election after election? Because you really don’t believe in term limits! Primary elections are where term limits happen.  Yes, you need to pick which party to vote for.  Voting […]

Dump Rauner for Jeanne Ives

By:  Diane Benjamin Bruce Rauner has accomplished little for Illinois, now add he declared Illinois a sanctuary state and forced pro-life people to pay for abortions.  He is mistaken to believe his base will support him for another 4 years.  We have been betrayed by Rauner and we will not forget. We have a better […]
