When DSA supports you, you are on the wrong side of history Unit 5

By: Diane Benjamin Remember when the local Democratic Socialists showed up at the June Unit 5 School Board meeting? With bullhorn in hand they obstructed people wanting to enter the building: https://blnnews.com/2021/06/17/unit-5-community-organizing-by-the-local-socialists/ Socialists are anti-American. They believe government makes better decisions than you do and therefore have the right to seize private property, mandate vaccines, […]

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!

[…]

Jenn Carrillo’s day job

By:  Diane Benjamin Do you choose Freedom and Liberty or Socialism?  Jenn’s day job is selling socialism.  If her side wins history proves people will die.  Socialism has never worked and never will! Jenn narrated this video.  Yes it has a lot of truth, but her solution will destroy America. If you don’t understand what […]

What the Socialists demanded

By:  Diane Benjamin Received by FOIA. The local radicals didn’t ask for assistance, they DEMANDED it.  They have attempted to beat local elected officials into compliance with sheer volumes of insistence. As reported last night, help for people hurt by the government shutdown of the economy is already available:  https://blnnews.com/2020/04/14/facts-matter-socialists-another-jenn-fail/ Bloomington elected two socialists and […]

100% Green Energy? Laugh now

By:  Diane Benjamin Remember this Bernie shirt: I wonder if wind is “Just and Clean Energy”?

NOPE I wonder if the local socialists know what […]

Local Socialists rebel!

By:  Diane Benjamin Chris Koos must have taken his defeat Tuesday harder than he’s publicly saying.  Two new Trustees that have called out the “Plan” to buy people to move Uptown will be seated May 1.  Chris claimed he doesn’t take it as a rebuke of Town policies.   It was of course, but dictator types […]

Normal has socialists on the ballot too!

By:  Diane Benjamin See this previous story:  https://blnnews.com/2019/02/22/will-bloomington-elect-socialists/ If you didn’t think the Normal Town Council is already socialist – it could get worse.  I really appreciate socialist Sonny Garcia posting on social media which candidates fit that plan: He listed the candidates voters need to avoid: Alex Campbell, Joel Studebaker, and Pat Turner. The […]

$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 […]

Bloomington: It’s close to over (for you)

by:  Diane Benjamin Does everybody know who Rep. Jan Schakowsky is?  Search the Internet.  She is a confirmed Socialist and member of Democratic Socialists of America.  Contrary to what is taught in schools today, socialism is not a social group or club.  Socialism means government is smarter than you, government controls everything, government must make all […]

Divorce Agreement

WRITTEN BY YOUNG COLLEGE STUDENT The person who wrote this is a college student.
