I listened LIVE to the hearing

What Happened with the Chung bill:

By: Diane Benjamin There wasn’t a hearing on HB 3337 yesterday because Sharon Chung filed an amendment to the bill. That means it has to go back to the Rules Committee before being heard at the Counties and Townships Committee. The amendment was a stall tactic, it didn’t change anything. Maybe she saw the Witness […]

Fire Works in Normal Part 2

By: Diane Benjamin 6 people spoke during Public Comment last night. Of course they had to wait until the end of the meeting because the Town of Normal wants to make sure the plebs don’t interfere at the beginning. Luckily the agenda was short so they weren’t sitting around for hours waiting to speak. The […]

Sharon Chung SCREWS Normal taxpayers

By: Diane Benjamin Two types of people run for office. One runs for power and forcing other to submit to their vision, the other wants to serve and preserve freedom and liberty for future generations. Every Trustee in Normal does the bidding of staff and Koos except one. That one is despised for representing the […]

It’s official! Local elections are partisan

By: Diane Benjamin Colleen Reynolds wrote the WGLT article on the forum held last Saturday: https://www.wglt.org/local-news/2023-01-14/bloomington-normal-council-candidate-nonpartisan-forum-turns-partisan She never says in the article where it turned partisan. Nice job Colleen. Are you offended the local GOP held the event only 2 far left candidates for Bloomington Council didn’t attend? Does Colleen think only WGLT should hold […]

Free is mostly worthless

By: Diane Benjamin Think of anything you have ever received free. Advertising magnets? Pencils? Ink pens? How much value did they have? Probably not much. JB wants to give away college education Who is going to pay these salaries? That would be every taxpayer in Illinois who already paid for their college education or never […]

Election lies: Chung and Koehler

By: Diane Benjamin A reader sent this mailer to me, evidently Chung and Koehler want to win by conning voters: Since reforming pensions isn’t the Constitutional Amendment on the ballot, democrats will not be cutting property taxes. They won’t be giving more money to schools so they can cut property taxes because close to 25% […]

Sharon Chung is rolling in $$$$$

By: Diane Benjamin https://www.illinoissunshine.org/committees/34779/ How much money does her opponent Scott Preston have? https://www.illinoissunshine.org/committees/25061/ Chung is well know for supporting criminals during her time on the McLean County Board. So who is supporting this police hater? The same people trying to get Amendment 1 passed by calling it a Worker’s Rights Amendment. It’s really a […]

Fly on the Wall: Sharon Chung

Democrat deliver? Deliver what? Why don’t Chung’s TV commercials say she’s a Democrat? Is it in tiny letters somewhere meant to deceive voters? Why doesn’t Chung mention defunding police in commercials like she did on the County Board? Democrats Deliver: deceit to get elected, tax increases, and criminals back on the streets. Dems gave Illinois […]

County Board: Part 2

By: Diane Benjamin In yesterday’s story I neglected to say the audio and video of this meeting don’t mesh. The first 16 minutes has no sound. Need some IT help County? Ask Bloomington, they use the same room. Refer back to this story, Sheriff Sandage is tired of Sharon Chung stirring up trouble in the […]

Sharon Chung is soft on crime

By: Diane Benjamin Chung is running as a democrat for the 91st District. She is currently on the County Board. The video below proves Chung is unfit to serve in any capacity. Sheriff Sandage addressed her personally at yesterday’s Justice Committee meeting. He read a long list of Chung communicating with and advising inmates in […]

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 […]

By:  Diane Benjamin A couple days ago this Letter to the Editor from McLean County Board member Sharon Chung appeared in the paper: https://www.pantagraph.com/opinion/letters/race-connection-furthers-division/article_298225bf-64ea-5b14-b9a7-e62de06e15c4.html Chung is upset an amendment failed that would have removed “China” from the emergency proclamation the County passed. Sharon, Communist China wants the same thing!  Most of the media has knelt […]
