Facts immaterial to Carrillo

By: Diane Benjamin On Bloomington’s agenda tonight Jenn Carrillo wants the Council to petition the Federal and State governments to replace Columbus Day in favor of Indigenous People’s Day. https://blnnews.com/2021/01/22/cancel-culture-back-at-bloomington-monday/ Evidently Jenn doesn’t know the entire month of November is Native American People’s month. Maybe she doesn’t know that’s another way of saying Indigenous People’s […]

Cancel Culture Back at Bloomington Monday

By: Diane Benjamin A country without history is no longer a country. Since the local socialists want to destroy capitalism, the basis for America, history must be re-written. Instead of studying the foundations of our country and the world it must all be erased. Countries around the world celebrate Christopher Columbus as a great explorer […]

Was Jenn beat up?

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo posted a video on her official alderman Facebook page yesterday. While listening, all I could think of was what happened to her: What happened to the left side of her face? She didn’t mention it during the video. She talked about the violence in DC, guess she hasn’t heard ANTIFA […]

Carrillo proves clueless (again)

By: Diane Benjamin WGLT did this story about Mboka Mwilambwe’s bid for mayor: https://www.wglt.org/post/mwilambwe-touts-council-experience-bloomington-mayoral-bid?fbclid=IwAR2V0jLhdCCUinq7tHKN80kTa2tyam6ZGOhV7lzeF6N8iu8QfKFonJN2N3M#stream/0 One paragraph hacked off former illegal immigrant Jenn Carrillo: Although Mboka has never said that I remember, he was likely a LEGAL immigrant. He wasn’t the sneak across the border type or overstay a visa. Jenn Posted this: Here’s the deal […]

For those wanting to Defund the Police:

By: Diane Benjaminb LAPD Forced To Dissolve Sexual Assault Unit Amid Budget Cuts The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is preparing for a drastic reorganization as it’s forced into a $150 million budget cut. According to LAPD Chief Michel Moore this week, the department will immediately have to cut an estimated 350 positions. He said […]

Bloomington: The far left has control

By: Diane Benjamin Have you heard Joe Biden calling for civility because we are all Americans? It’s cute but he forgot his base isn’t civil. Funny how all the protests and burning businesses have stopped. I suggest businesses don’t dispose of the boarding-up materials: Joe Biden isn’t president-elect. The media doesn’t get to declare a […]

Bloomington Monday: Socialist Day

By: Diane Benjamin The Cancel Culture led by socialist Jenn Carrillo made the agenda for Monday: http://bloomingtonil.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1094&Inline=True Carrillo’s attempt to cancel Christopher Columbus from history will probably pass because some on the Council think her version of re-written history is trendy. Funny how countries around the world have celebrated Columbus Day for centuries: “It should […]

BEC Judge Electioneering

By: Diane Benjamin I was informed by a VERY reliable source: Yesterday at the Coliseum a Bloomington Election Commission judge was telling people to vote YES on the Progressive Tax Amendment. That is illegal, the police were called and a report was made. Election officials are not allowed to influence your vote. Meanwhile, Jenn Carrillo […]

The rest of Bloomington last night

By: Diane Benjamin Ward 6 had no representation last night – Jenn Carrillo decided not to show up and nobody said a word about her missing except in Public Comment. Maybe Jenn had to get ready for her court hearing today: She is charged with disobeying a police officer and improper parking on a roadway […]

ISU bias is astounding!

By: Diane Benjamin I really wanted to take the afternoon off, but then a reader sent me this: ISU must believe “people of color” all lean left. This virtual discussion is being conducted by one of the local leaders of Black Lives Matter: Olivia Butts. On the panel are 3 local women who range from […]

UPDATE: Heard about the guy charged with 32 molestation charges?

h/t a reader Also in the video: By: Diane Benjamin h/t a reader See one story here: https://hoiabc.com/2020/09/29/grand-jury-indicts-bloomington-man-on-32-child-molestation-charges/?fbclid=IwAR1pafw6ONtSyM0S3A9AEaCVwjNHIz-WtDTzbzwTdWicjYkXtj27D4Oo7SU#.X3R6sTYfjAY.facebook The guys name is Mercedez Byrd, he also had cocaine in his pocket when he was arrested. His Facebook page has numerous videos, in one he is asking for names of people who need bailed out so […]

Bloomington: Your Ward 5 candidates

By: Diane Benjamin Never let a good crisis go to waste. This was Twitter yesterday after the Breonna Taylor decision. A grand jury – CITIZENS called on to make decisions – agreed two of the officers should not be charged. The decisions were not made by the police, a State’s Attorney, or even the BLACK […]

Knock it off!

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo posted 2 voicemails she received: I have no idea who the two people are who left these voicemails, but they serve ZERO purpose. She doesn’t care about your opinions. Your job, if you don’t want want Jenn’s on the Bloomington City Council is to inform other citizens and actually get […]

Jenn is my Poster Child!

By: Diane Benjamin I remember years ago when I mentioned “limited government” some people didn’t understand what that means. Politicians are constantly claiming they will save us from whatever and they actually make the whatever worse. Just this week Minneapolis citizens and their leadership are wondering why the police don’t show up when called. Other […]

Civil war imminent?

By: Diane Benjamin The left never accepted the results of the 2016 election. They won’t accept the re-election of Trump either. Tweet last night: Response to her tweet: In case the police want to find Zach when Trump is reelected: I’ve got a packed day today, so I will leave this to you readers for […]

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. […]

Bloomington Bozos

By:  Diane Benjamin The Council met for a whopping 16 minutes last night, they didn’t have an Executive Session. Tim Gleason started the meeting with a COVID update.  He claimed cases are up because people have been traveling now and are out and about more.  He ignores the obvious: College kids are back and out […]

Cancel Culture hits Bloomington

By:  Diane Benjamin The Bloomington City Council will meet on Monday with only 1 item on the agenda (besides approving minutes and hear how everything needs to stay locked down because 20 somethings can’t protect themselves from COVID) Has anyone ever celebrated Columbus Day? I wonder if Jenn knows her native language is Spanish because […]

Jenn Carrillo is the Enemy Within

Socialism Kills! Obviously Carrillo was never taught history and doesn’t bother to learn.  She is the enemy within.  She and Jeff Carbill need to be marginalized by the other Bloomington City Council members.  Congrats Bloomington:  Two of her buddies are running next April. Capitalism is the fairest way to exchange goods and services and the […]

Jenn can’t handle the truth

By:  Diane Benjamin It appears Jenn Carrillo has blocked me on Twitter. This morning I retweeted one of Dickie Durbin’s stupid comments about needing more money for Chicago to end poverty and violence.  Of course I added a comment: Jenn responded to me with this, when I tried to reply it appears I’m blocked. Keep […]

Jenn: Two things can’t be true

By:  Diane Benjamin You may have heard that Jenn Carrillo was ticketed for illegal parking yesterday for (as she claims) trying to protect Black Lives Matter demonstrators at the County jail. Read her shirt:   She added this later to her Facebook page: How can the police protect protesters wanting criminals and suspects released from jail […]

Cancel culture, Normal, and more

By:  Diane Benjamin https://www.wglt.org/post/isu-change-watterson-towers-house-names-over-slavery-history ISU President Dietz has caved to the Cancel Culture.  He thinks it isn’t fair to ask students to live in Watterson Towers in houses named for historic figures ISU likely has no classes that even discuss.  His Assistant for Diversity (head divider) told him. Dietz doesn’t know the Cancel Culture never […]

Tari thinks Aldermen work for him

By:  Diane Benjamin As if it isn’t already ridiculous that Tari puts time limits on your elected representatives, now he doesn’t want them pulling items from the Consent Agenda.  Maybe he’s taking lessons from Chris Koos. Tari was upset Donna Boelen pulled two items, he claims Consent Agenda items have no need to be discussed.  […]

Disappearing Aldermen

By:  Diane Benjamin The City of Bloomington has dealt with Aldermen who disrespect the flag with activist signs and refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance, just make them disappear. Next they need to work on the disrespect to their oaths of office, promoting socialism or worse is not compatible with the Constitution they swore […]

Before Carrillo makes up more history:

http://www.truenorthreports.com/Anthropologist-Says-Christopher-Columbus-Critics-Have-Their-History-Wrong It isn’t unusual for the Cancel Culture to get their facts wrong, Columbus just might be one of them.  Of course, Jenn won’t care – canceling history is popular in her circles.  She mentioned at the last Council meeting she will make changing Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s day a Council initiative. Excerpts: Read […]

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 […]

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. […]

Democrats vrs Black Lives Matter

By:  Diane Benjamin The City of Bloomington Council meeting will reconvene Wednesday at 7:30.  Technical difficulties were experienced with the Live Stream.  Instead of having the meeting anyway and posting video today, the meeting was rescheduled. That was a good thing because it allowed Jenn Carrillo and Jeff Crabill to comment on a Live event […]

Are Democrats using Black Lives Matter?

By:  Diane Benjamin It’s obvious the Democrat Party only cares about blacks when they want their vote.  Obama was president with his sidekick Biden for 8 years.  They didn’t do prison reform or even talk about police reforms.  Neither did anything about the black unemployment rate or the black on black violence in Chicago.  Add […]

Did Jenn make this comment?

By:  Diane Benjamin Maybe Jenn Carrillo can hop on her official Facebook page and deny she made this comment on my site: Doesn’t this sound just like her? America has survived for almost 244 years without socialism being “existentially necessary”. Have we lost the battle?  Not as long as the 2nd Amendment exists.  That’s why […]

More on “the list”

By:  Diane Benjamin Since the list contains obvious lies I’m not going to post the un-redacted version.    https://blnnews.com/2020/06/14/we-are-at-war/ Many people want to know who is on the list so they can frequent these establishment.  Remember when Chic-Fil-A was targeted and supporters stood in long lines just to show their support?  https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/chick-fil-supporters-gather-appreciation-day/story?id=16904664 Jenn Carrillo claims […]
