"Burrito Bruce" Rauner Wants Amnesty For Illegal Aliens: Says So In Latino Newspaper

Just as the immigration invasion has now become the #1 issue of concern to Republicans, per an August Gallup poll, the mega bucks, Illinois RINO running for Governor, Bruce Rauner, comes out publicly for amnesty for illegal aliens.
Rauner pandering to Latino immigrants in Chicago

Rauner did that in a pandering op ed published in the HOY, Spanish language Chicago newspaper.

Not only did he come out for granting amnesty to illegal aliens, but he also trashed Republicans for opposing it:

"...some Republicans are downright hostile to immigrants, failing to recognize that America’s past, present, and future would not be nearly as bright and prosperous without our culture and heritage of immigration."

Rauner also repeated the mythological hogwash that Obama's administration has been deporting illegal aliens at a record rate. Even the LA Times exposed the fact that Obama & Co. had cooked the books on deportations, counting turnarounds at the border as "deportations."

But, no doubt spurred on by his lefty establishment GOP campaign operatives, Rauner blathered out that little bit of Democrat propaganda.

As we reported several weeks ago, Bruce Rauner and his lefty Jewish wife, Diana, have been big financial contributors to the open borders, pro amnesty immigration lobby group, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

So make no mistake about it. Bruce Rauner is an open borders, pro amnesty, cheap labor immigration pimp.

The good news is that increasing numbers of voters on the rightward edges of both parties are getting wise to Rauner's "liberal in drag" persona.

Many are going to simply stay at home on election day.

Some will throw away their Gubernatorial vote on the Libertarian Governor candidate, Chad Grimm, who's now polling 6% in statewide polls.

And some of the aggrieved right to lifers and family values voters are even talking about casting a strategic vote for Democrat Pat Quinn. That recently ignited a huge controversy in the Illinois Review.

What is becoming clear, is that Bruce Rauner's pandering better get him lots of Latino voters legal and otherwise.

With conservatives deserting Rauner in droves, he's going to need his amigos down in Pilsen and Little Village voting early and often.

The First Ever McDonald's in Des Plaines, IL: Now the McDonald's Museum

Well, when you're a nation with fewer than 3 centuries under your belt, I guess you've got to celebrate your culture wherever you can and that's why we have the McDonald's Museum.
The 1st ever McDonald's in Des Plaines, IL
is preserved as the McDonald's Museum 

On River Rd., just Northwest of Chicago in suburban Des Plaines, is preserved the 1st ever McDonald's fast food drive in restaurant, looking pretty much as it did when super entrepreneur, Ray Kroc, built it in 1955.

According to his authorized autobiography, Grinding It Out, Ray Kroc mortgaged his Northfield home to raise the cash to pursue his dream.

His wife, a short sighted woman, if there ever was one, divorced him as a result.

"I've had it with your cockamamie schemes," she said to Ray.

"Don't let the door hit you on the way out," he replied.

Hamburgers were only 15 cents

He gave her the car, the home, the dog and their remaining bank accounts. But he adamantly refused to give her stock in his fledgling McDonald's Corporation, which consisted then, of the one restaurant you see above.

That stock would be worth something around $1 billion today.

Old Ray had the last laugh.
