The Seven Republicans Who Voted Against ‘Amnesty’ Bill and the Three Democrats Who Did

Yesterday a symbolic bill called the “Preventing Executive Overreach on Immigration Act of 2014” authored by a rookie congressman from Florida named Yoho passed the House, 219-197.

While the bill will go nowhere, anyone who is following the immigration reform debate should know the following:

Seven Republicans voted against the bill. Five of those GOPers came from districts with a significant population of Latino voters: Mike Coffman (R-CO), Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Jeff Denham (R-CA), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) and David Valadao (R-CA).

They other two who voted know were Louis Gohmert (R-TX) and Marlin Stutzman (R-IN). But don’t think Gohmert and Stutzman were voting no because they have suddenly experienced a change of heart.

This is what Gohmert (you know, the guy “radical Islamists” are being trained to “act like Hispanics”) said as the House debated the bill.

And so you know, Steve King (R-IA), Raúl Labrador (R-ID) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) voted “Present,” meaning that they didn’t even vote. We will repeat this again: Steve King didn’t vote on this bill.

The three Democrats who voted for the bill were John Barrow (D-GA), Mike McIntyre (D-NC) and Collin Peterson (D-MN). Barrow isn’t coming back to the House, McIntyre is retiring and Peterson, well, who knows why Peterson voted the way he did. This is where he stands on that issue.

The Talmud must not be regarded as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; it posies absolutely no similarity to any other literary production, but forms, without any figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that is frivolous of which it treats with great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace which presume the efficacy of demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “ judgments and decrees against the members of other nations and religions, and finally it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.

The Babylonian” Talmud is especially distinguished from the Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by the flights of thought, the penetration of mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for this reason that the Babylonian rather than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish Race, its life breath, its very soul, nature and mankind, powers and events, were for the Jewish nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. Persecution had occurred there on “ and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of them submitted to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms was only outward and false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They were called Marrano, ‘ Accursed Ones,’ and there were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
