Remember Earmarks?

By: Diane Benjamin Earmarks are a way the elected officials in Washington DC claim to bring federal dollars back to their district. Often bills can’t get passed unless these “gifts” are tacked on to bills. House and Senate members tell leadership they will vote for some ridiculous bill is you give me X. Earmarks were […]

By: Diane Benjamin Keep in mind many of Normal’s professional staff don’t live in Normal: https://blnnews.com/2020/12/14/guess-where-town-of-normal-employees-dont-live/ They have no reason to keep taxes low, make the roads drivable, or the water drinkable.

Blame LaHood and Davis

Earmarks are back! Earmarks are out of control spending for petty projects locals should pay for themselves instead of asking the feds to print money for them. Democrats resurrected them when they took control of the House. https://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/columns/tom-kacich-congress-brings-back-earmarks-one-illinois-rep-isnt-on-board/article_449a248d-57e6-5943-9d76-1cea915585df.html A Champaign columnist printed the facts.

Rodney Davis needs some Connect Transit FACTS

By:  Diane Benjamin I found this article yesterday:    U S Representatives Introduce Bipartisan Bill To Increase Funding For Small Community Transit Systems Note:  “Small community”.  Tari Renner and Chris Koos don’t understand they are a SMALL Community, not Chicago. Also Note:  They are spending YOUR money. Excerpts: Currently, the STIC provides funds to those […]

Radicals on the loose

Davis or Londrigan?

By:  Diane Benjamin I have no great love for Rodney Davis, but in this race the choice is clear! This is a quote from an email sent by Londrigan on August 13th begging for money: When asked about the tax bill yesterday on Capitol Connection, Congressman Rodney Davis doubled down on how it’s benefitting middle-class Americans. We know the […]

Establishment guy Rodney Davis

By:  Diane Benjamin Sick of the GOP establishment?  Rodney is one of them! The GOP establishment fully funded Obamacare, then did a separate bill to de-fund it.  Of course the president vetoed it, but we are supposed to applaud their efforts.  They funded planned parenthood too.  Actually, the list is endless.  NO – they AREN’T […]

Hiding the agenda

By:  Diane Benjamin Here’s the problem with candidates running for office: They are unwilling to stand on principles and values Almost every candidate tries to hide where they stand on the issues because they know they would not get elected saying what they really think. In 2013 I filmed Aaron Schock at a Town Hall […]

Constitution DIED without a shot fired

By:  Diane Benjamin Our elected officials take an Oath of Office to Preserve, Protect, and Defend the Constitution of the United states of America. Where in the Constitution does it say the President makes Immigration laws? Where does it say the President can change laws, like ObamaCare, when ever he feels like it? Campaigning for […]

Chicago Tribune endorses Erika Harold!

by:  Diane Benjamin I have nothing against Rep Rodney Davis’s voting record, but his attitude is a problem.  He has not held Town Hall meetings, opting instead for visiting businesses.  It is almost like he is afraid of tough questions.  Maybe the Chicago Tribune saw the same thing: Tribune endorsements for the U.S. House The […]

Rodney Davis: Town Hall he didn’t appreciate

by:  Diane Benjamin First, I have nothing against Davis’s voting record.  It’s his attitude that needs adjustment.  He refuses to hold Town Hall meetings, even though he said he has had 2.  He favors managed events at businesses where the pro illegal immigration crowd can’t attend and citizens can’t ask tough questions. It’s a lot […]

Rodney Davis: NO public meetings

by:  Diane Benjamin Since the August recess began, Rep Rodney Davis has held no public events.  He is busy visiting places where he won’t get asked tough questions. Next Thursday Davis is holding a Question and Answer session at State Farm – for employees only!  How safe for you Rodney!  Can tough questions be asked […]

Maybe Rodney Davis should have asked conservatives for help – not the GOP

Dear We’re 13 days away. That’s it. 13 days to take back the 13th District. 13 days to show Rodney that we’re not intimidated by his millions in lies and distortions. 13 days to prove our commitment to Medicare, Social Security, and the middle class. A new poll has me winning by 9% and today we surpassed […]

The Rodney Davis Pick – the back story

by Diane Benjamin This information comes from a very reliable source: Habeeb Habeeb, GOP chair of Champaign County, apparently aggravated the other 13 County GOP Chairs with his superiority attitude and multiple radio interviews.   They refused to support his candidate-Erika Herald-because of him! Champaign County had the weighted vote because of the number of […]
