Where do campaign contributions go?

By:  Diane Benjamin I’m not going to check the Facebook or websites of every Democrat running for election, but I checked a few. If you contribute to any of the below why is ActBlue getting the money?  That’s the same organization contributions to Black Lives Matter go to.  We do know those contributions don’t end […]

More on BLM and local Democrats

By:  Diane Benjamin The Facebook discussion between 2 local BLM activists and two members of the local democrat party is worth your time.  See it on the McLean county Democrats Facebook page. Ky Ajayi of BLM made one comparison I find silly, but he was dead serious.  He compared abolitionists to the people who today […]

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 […]

Democrats aren’t playing politics?!

By:  Diane Benjamin Nikita Richards, failed candidate for McLean County Clerk, was recently elected to lead the McLean County Democrats. When the economy was shut down we were told it was “to bend the curve”.  The purpose was to prevent massive numbers of hospitalizations that would overwhelm the system. Overwhelming never came close to happening, […]

Again, not everything is government’s job

By:  Diane Benjamin The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ Ronald Reagan Dick Durbin thinks everything is government’s job.  He also thinks the cost is immaterial.  Churches and families used to take care of each other.  That was before  government saw they can […]

Carlo: Explain this!

By:  Diane Benjamin See this previous story:  https://blnnews.com/2019/04/19/things-that-dont-fit-anywhere-else-3/ Democrat County Board member Carlo Robustelli berated GOP Chair Connie Beard for inferring municipal election are actually partisan. Carlo:  Why did the Democrat Party interfere in the last local non-partisan election? Maybe they aren’t really non-partisan Carlo?  Erik Rankin sure thinks they aren’t!  See picture below. The […]

More Local Dems hilarity

By:  Diane Benjamin Can 97% of taxpayers in Illinois pay less in taxes while the State plans to spend more?  The local Democrat Party must think citizens have ZERO common sense: They don’t mention Springfield is planning to give financial aid to illegal aliens too. The FLAT income tax has been continually increased.  The State […]

Local Democrat Hilarity

By:  Diane Benjamin Posted on Facebook today by the McLean County Democrats: If people got smaller refunds it is because they paid less in all year!  Please check the total federal taxes you paid in 2017 compared to the total you paid for 2018. Question:  Why would anybody let the government use your money all […]

$15 minimum wage disaster

By:  Diane Benjamin Democrats have lost their minds: High school kids will never have a job again.  Businesses aren’t going to pay $15 an hour to a kid who has never worked before.   They have to be trained to show up on time and actually work the entire time they are clocked in for.  They […]

Democrats: Kathy Michael not invited

By:  Diane Benjamin The local Democrats are against abolishing the Bloomington Election Commission.  Instead of lessening the tax burden by eliminating one of the way too many government agencies in Illinois, they would rather create an unaccountable new one to oversee elections.  The County Clerk is an elected position, Democrats want to create a commission […]
