— What Could The Repeal Of DACA Mean For Illinois? – JASMINE COOPER


— DIERSEN HEADLINE: An anti-Rauner asks “Can Bruce Rauner bounce back from a terrible summer?” Ever-increasing, Rauner talks and acts like a) he does not read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and b) he listens to those who advise him to run as an anti-Republican, that is, to dump the traditional family, right to life, immigration, illegal drugs, equal opportunity (no race or gender based preference giving), and other planks in the Republican Party platform and in the Illinois Republican Party platform and to dump those individuals, organizations, companies, and governments in Illinois that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders (except Bill Clinton), and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete a) 1966-1968 while I attended UIC, b) weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and c) the summer of 1969.
