Local BLM endorsements

By: Diane Benjamin First, you need to review what the Local Black Lives Matter group wants: Who are they endorsing, supposedly because a survey they filled out? I wonder if Chris Koos watching Target get looted had anything to do with their decision? Cities that have cut funding to their police departments have seen astronomical […]

Is Lawler a chicken or just uninformed?

By: Diane Benjamin Ward 5 candidate Patrick Lawler was supposed to participate in a debate tonight. Instead he posted this: Let’s deconstruct! Patrick isn’t interested in listening to Republicans. “Regardless of what party” is a load of crap or he would be there tonight. Patrick obviously only gets news that lied about the former President. […]

What you get with People 1st candidates

By: Diane Benjamin Thinking about voting for Jackie Gunderson, Kelby Cumpston, Patrick Lawler, or Willie Holton Halbert? You should first look at what Jenn Carrillo and Jeff Crabill have done for Bloomington: Juneteenth, Welcoming City, Defund the police, not showing up at meetings, etc. If you want a Social Justice Council that ignores the essential […]

Open Season on Police

By: Diane Benjamin Consider: Alderman Jenn Carrillo wanted a “discussion” on defunding the police at the last Council meeting while presenting no evidence other than it’s trendy. Carrillo obviously hasn’t seen the crime statistics in cities that have taken money from the police. You can see here: https://washingtonwatch.org/democrat-run-cities-that-voted-to-defund-the-police-now-face-soaring-violent-crime-rates/ Other far left groups in Bloomington are […]

People 1st Coalition goes up in FLAMES

By: Diane Benjamin Jenn Carrillo showed at the Bloomington Council meeting last night what a Council with her buddies on it would look like.

And the winners are . . .

By: Diane Benjamin The winners on April 6th will be determined solely on turnout. Around 20% will bother to vote, most people won’t know there is an election. They won’t understand local politics will hurt them far more than any November election. Unless YOU get people to the poles, these people will win. Guess who […]

BLM and the April 6th election

By: Diane Benjamin The below was sent to candidates running in Bloomington by the local Black Lives Matter group: The below was included, they didn’t update it after Illinois ended Cash Bail very soon.

For the People?

By: Diane Benjamin Last night the US House passed HR1 – For the People Act. Even though the Constitution states legislatures in all 50 states make election laws, this bill: Requires same day voter registration in every state mandates automatic registering of felons, illegals, and 16 year olds requires prisons, ICE facilities, and welfare offices […]

Thanks Jenn for the socialist agenda

By: Diane Benjamin I wonder if Jenn thinks this is a winning strategy for her socialist buddies April 6th: Excerpt: These people are her hopes for being on the “new” council: I appreciate Jenn’s honesty for what the agenda will be. On-site consumption means a lot of revenue can be generated by parking surveillance 1/2 […]

To Lawler facts are immaterial + Ward 3

By: Diane Benjamin Two guys are running for alderman in Ward 5: Patrick Lawler and Nick Becker. Lawler is running with the local socialists and sides with the two already on the Council: As all Progressives, do Lawler now wants to “move Bloomington forward”, in other words twist and bend existing norms to fit his […]

Local Elections aren’t non-partisan

By: Diane Benjamin Local elections are supposedly non-partisan. Of course they never have been but nobody will openly admit that. I hear the local trades announced they are supporting democrats. Do the rank and file know it was democrats who shut down their favorite after work watering hole? In Bloomington these 4 have formed their […]

Things the don’t fit anywhere else

Think this a threat?

By: Diane Benjamin Tweet from Ward 5 socialist candidate Patrick Lawler: Going to go to their homes Patrick? That is what the radical left does – it’s called intimidation!

The Socialist Team:

By: Diane Benjamin Want the Jenn’s running the Bloomington City Council? Her buddies are running as a team. Here is a little of what you can expect if they win: Must not be too popular, that was the only response. They had to respond to themselves. . . . .

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 […]

Enjoy the show Bloomington

by: Diane Benjamin Normal has an excellent chance of electing servant representatives next April. You do remember they used to be called PUBLIC SERVANTS, not tyrants with their own agenda? Bloomington not so much yet. Either everyone with morals and values is too busy working or they have left town. This guy claims he is […]

Graffiti in Uptown

By: Diane Benjamin According to my millennial interpreter, this means happy and sad at the same time. The symbol is all over Uptown, there are also letters said to be a slur on police. Below are just a few examples: h/t: Two readers Maybe the Marxist teacher running for Bloomington City Council can provide further […]

Finally: A discussion on what government SHOULD be

By:  Diane Benjamin Please share this story! I’ve been asking for this discussion for years, the next local election will FORCE it to happen.  Why does local government exist and what powers should it have and NOT have?  Obviously Bloomington screwed up big time when the Coliseum was built against the wishes of the citizens.
