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 […]

Pantagraph Editorial

By:  Diane Benjamin Anonymous Editorial writer published one today against Tari Renner:   http://www.pantagraph.com/opinion/editorial/editorial-mayor-needs-to-change-his-ways-and-fast/article_5de7dedd-4ac6-5590-8ebe-f5c1c1f95d2b.html You can decide for yourself why they wrote it. Even though a comment by Bruce Meeks stating he had never sued the City was published in THEIR paper, the writer allowed Renner to claim yet again Bruce has been suing for 5 […]

Pantagraph LIES!

By: Diane Benjamin Today an editorial writer is attempting to rewrite the history of Japan, Tari Renner, Margot Erhlich, and PCards.

Heeeeeerrrrreeees Tari!

By:  Diane Benjamin Thanks to the Vidette, video exists of Tari’s speech at the NIOT Democratic rally.  Tari’s portion is less than two minutes.  They took short clips of various speakers and put them together. I have no idea what Martin Luther King had to do with this event since it was supposedly to oppose […]

Nothing better than LIES

By:  Diane Benjamin One more note from last night’s Council meeting.  Renner lied – how many times does this make?  Of course, he wouldn’t even recognize lies anymore. The topic was Sick Leave Buy Back again.  The City policy was changed in 2012 to make any new hires not eligible for this benefit available nowhere […]

It’s the Lies – too many of them

By:  Diane Benjamin Repeat lies often enough and either some people will believe them – or somebody might check the facts! Let’s check some facts! David Hales and the Coliseum management like to spout economic impact numbers.  If accurate, the City should be swimming in all the new revenue created by the amazing gift thrust […]

Make them look you in the eye!

Note:  Share this post with your friends.  The media isn’t going to tell them the truth! By:  Diane Benjamin Poor Mayor Koos.  Normal can’t steal more money from you unless Bloomington votes to steal more too. The media is allowing Renner to lie to you! Hey Tari:  Why are tax receipts to date UP 3.9% […]

Dick Durbin: Head Liar

Maybe he’s still behind the other DC liar from Illinois, but not by much. WH: Durbin story ‘did not happen’ By Justin Sink White House press secretary Jay Carney on Wednesday flatly denied that a House Republican told President Obama “I cannot even stand to look at you” during negotiations over the government shutdown. “It […]

The Fracking Lies continue

by Diane Benjamin As previously reported (https://blnnews.com/2012/08/30/fracking-under-attack-with-fraud-in-mclean-county/) (https://blnnews.com/2013/01/23/fracknation-exposed-the-energy-haters/) some people will do anything, including lie, to stop the use of fossil fuels.  We are all affected because cheap energy is essential to the economy of the United States.  Double gas prices have put a lid on potential economic development when families have fewer discretionary dollars.  Cheap natural gas collected […]
