Never forget this:

By:  Diane Benjamin Everything happening in the country right now has to do with ONE thing: Presidential Election Democrats have a candidate that doesn’t know where he is most of the time.  They don’t want you to know who will be running the country – it won’t be Biden. Black Lives Matter is just an […]

Ward 5 – they are coming for you next

By:  Diane Benjamin The local elections next year could give the radicals complete control of Bloomington.  Right now they have 2 out of 9 seats, 5  and the mayor up for election next April.  The radicals will be running candidates, all they need is 3 more seats to turn the Bloomington into their Marxist utopia. […]

BLM, Violence, and Sonny Garcia

By:  Diane Benjamin Officers covering for other officers they know shouldn’t carry a badge and a gun is what led to the death of a black man in Minneapolis.  I doubt there is any person in America that condones what the 4 officers did, especially the three without their knee on the guys neck who […]

The entitled show up to shame 

By:  Diane Benjamin Public comment last night was loaded with those who think they are entitled to tax dollars.  Yes people have lost jobs and yes paying bills is next to impossible, but that doesn’t make them entitled to anything.  The good socialists showed up en masse to criticize the FIVE Council members who voted […]

Update: Local Bernie Bros go nuts

2 National news outlets picked up this story. Sorry Sonny, they didn’t use your name. By:  Diane Benjamin Bloomington’s own Democrat Socialists who support Bernie Sanders made the Champaign News last night.  They are upset Betsy Dirksen Londigron won’t have another debate with challenger Stefanie Smith.  The report claims they did have a recent debate.  […]

100% Green Energy? Laugh now

By:  Diane Benjamin Remember this Bernie shirt: I wonder if wind is “Just and Clean Energy”? Does “Just” mean it’s free for some people?  That sure won’t be wind since it costs more to make electricity than coal and natural gas. But is wind “Clean Energy”? NOPE I wonder if the local socialists know what […]

Sonny Garcia: Lies will not go unchallenged

By:  Diane Benjamin Sonny Garcia, Illinois People Action and Democratic Socialist, posted this on Facebook: Sonny Garcia is teaching people to get shot with this comment.  Those who do not comply with orders by police are the ones risking getting shot.  Every officer deserves to go home to their family.  Yes, there are a few […]

Socialists sworn in today

By:  Diane Benjamin Sonny Garcia is a self-proclaimed democratic socialist.  He has no clue what that means.  He does want the Welcoming Ordinance, Community Policing, Green City, Affordable Housing, and free public transportation. Side note to Sonny and Jenn:  Bloomington aggregated buying electricity and opted for only “green”.  That means those poor and oppressed people […]

The Truth we already knew

By:  Diane Benjamin The Welcoming Ordinance will be quickly back before the Bloomington City Council as soon as the new Council members are seated.  This time it will easily pass.  It will also be a lie. Citizens will be told the ordinance is only to make illegals feel comfortable enough to report crimes.  That isn’t […]

Know what a Stonewall Democrat is?

By:  Diane Benjamin Before I answer that question, local democrats and independents need to know the local democrat party is following the same course as the national party – moving so far left it’s difficult to see them as anything but socialists veering straight toward communism Keep in mind, Illinois People’s Action was the group […]

Radicals on the loose

By:  Diane Benjamin These people were in downtown Normal yesterday to confront Rodney Davis: This event was put together by Sonny Garcia (Illinois People’s Action) with very little notice, they claim a total of two dozen eventually showed up.  Illinois People’s Action, Democrat Socialists of America, and the group below are all tied together by […]

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 […]

Can’t have a conversation with some people

By:  Diane Benjamin We are being intentionally deceived.  Politicians do it.  Media does it.  Schools are doing it. Social media reveals just how bad it is.  This pic was not taken locally, but it was posted locally.  The person who posted it doesn’t see a problem?  Do you? That brings me to Sonny Garcia – […]

Bloomington is at war thanks to Tari

By:  Diane Benjamin These are the people who helped elect Tari both times, note he looks much younger in the pic below.  The talking points haven’t changed. These are the people demanding a “welcoming ordinance” now. These are also Tari’s people: This is what “civility” looks like in Tari’s Bloomington. Proof:  Tari’s hate filled rant […]

Tari’s antics continue

By:  Diane Benjamin According to the Pantagraph (I actually cite sources), Renner is calling a special meeting July 9th to discuss the welcoming ordinance. Of course, he will have to waste more money holding it at the BCPA.  Since threats of violence have been made (yes, you Jenn Carrillo), police officers will have to attend. […]
