The Comedy Club you don’t have to pay to see!

By: Diane Benjamin Attention Mayor Mboka: You don’t have a right to limit speech! Read up, Urbana just paid attorney’s fees to settle a lawsuit against them for doing exactly what you did last night: https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2021/10/urbana-settled-open-meetings-public-comment-lawsuit/ The comment Mboka objected to starts at 25:29. The lady could be called clueless, combative, obnoxious, and probably other […]

Replacing Jenn – 4 progressives to go

By: Diane Benjamin Did you know Jenn Carrillo won her seat with overwhelming support? Many people at Public Comment last night claimed she did. They are trying to re-write history, their claims are WRONG. A measly 716 people bother to vote from Ward 6 in 2019. Carrillo received 379 votes, Schmidt got 337. For the […]

No Bloomington meeting tonight!

By: Diane Benjamin This is usually the night I have to watch two Council meetings – Normal’s and Bloomington’s Committee of the Whole. Bloomington is not meeting tonight. Maybe Mboka doesn’t want the conga line of radicals wanting Jenn 2.0 appointed to her empty seat. Maybe they have nothing to discuss. Either way, I’m smiling.

Letter to the Editor

Do you like Joe Biden?  You will love Karen Schmidt.   She is the Joe Biden of local politics.  When Ms Carillo moved out of her Ward I ventured out on a limb and said to someone you all know,  “Schmidt will get that seat.”   Of course we had to be drug through the silly charade […]

Crabill’s illogical logic

By: Diane Benjamin Evidently the leftists on the Council want to use media to get their choice for Ward 6 alderman. WGLT has now done two stories, the latest after Jeff Crabill posted to Facebook over the weekend: Jenn couldn’t find a single place in her Ward to live! Not buying it. It is much […]

The rest of Bloomington

By: Diane Benjamin I wonder how many of the people with sewage in their basements bothered to vote in past local elections. I’m betting many didn’t because turnout is despicable. City Councils are the ones who destroy you the fastest, think Coliseum, BCPA, a never used fire station, and a water tower built to short […]

Isn’t this special

By:  Diane Benjamin Yesterday Alderman Jenn Carrillo posted a video on her Alderman Facebook page instructing illegals on what to do if ICE comes to their house or business.  She claims she has been advocating for illegals for 10 years.  She must think illegals all speak Spanish, she used both Spanish and English.  Jenn is […]

Will Bloomington elect socialists?

By:  Diane Benjamin Some people in Bloomington admit they are democrat socialist.  The “democrat” part is added to make it sound like its real people leading the movement.  They are pure socialists, just like the ones who destroyed Venezuela.  They want to take your money, attack wealth producers, and hand money to people who didn’t […]

Jenn Carrillo post

By:  Diane Benjamin Ward 6 candidate for the Bloomington City Council posted the below today.  I’ve been trying to find out what her plan is to fix the problem.  I know how socialists, Marxists, and communists would fix it, but not Jenn.  If you see her please ask.  Ward 8 candidate Jeff Crabill appears to […]

Congrats Chief Heffner, but . . .

By:  Diane Benjamin It is a huge deal for Chief Heffner to be confirmed by the Senate as the next US Marshal for the Central District of Illinois.  Bloomington is losing an exceptional leader.  He was also the main force blocking the “Welcoming Ordinance”.   When he stated it would tie the hands of the local […]
