RNC and Ann Romney; Lying by omission, or racism?; Democrat Artur Davis speaks; Why tax rates are low for Mitt; Two hours of Islamic prayers, but no Catholic prayer allowed; Special Ops' and Obama's bow;The hateful Ellen Barkin; Code Pink tries to arrest Condi; Teacher helps her dumb students; Discussing Khrushchev

Well, the first night of the Republican convention couldn’t possibly have gone any better for Mitt Romney. The evening showcased two speeches that represented two key aspects of the American electorate — the two aspects of the American voter to which he needs to appeal if he is to win in November.
One is the heart. The other is the spine.
Ann Romney’s spectacular performance — as impressive a convention showing as any I’ve ever seen — focused on the heart. She made a direct appeal to women with straight talk about the difficulties of everyday life they know (she said) better than men.
“It’s given us the deep satisfaction of being able to help others in ways that we could never have imagined. Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point. And we’re no different than the millions of Americans who quietly help their neighbors, their churches and their communities. They don’t do it so that others will think more of them. They do it because there is no greater joy.”
The blissful haze that fell over the convention when Mrs. Romney was done was instantly replaced by the blustery charge of New Jersey’s Chris Christie. It was his choice to use his keynote address to try to stiffen the national spine. Mrs. Romney said she wanted to talk about love. Christie went in the opposite direction: “Tonight,” he said, “we’re going to choose respect over love.”

[In a perfect illustration of how the mainstream media lies comes this story, this time lying by omission.  Ok - it could be instead a display of MSNBC's racism.] One of the left’s favorite attacks on the Republican Party is that it is the party of old white people, devoid of diversity and probably racist.
If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s festivities.
In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.
 Having a famous – or notorious – crossover from the opposing party speak at your party’s national convention is a time-honored tradition, one that former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis of Alabama continued Tuesday night when he addressed the Republican convention in Tampa.
"The last time I spoke at a convention, it turned out I was in the wrong place,"  Davis told the delegates, an allusion to his speech at the 2008 Democratic convention in Denver. 
In another reference to that convention, Davis said, "Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well."
He said he and other Obama supporters in 2008 "led with our hearts and our dreams that we could be more inclusive than America had ever been, and no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully."
The left is again aghast at the tax life of Mitt Romney, working up a lather about his revelation that over the past decade his income tax rate has hovered around 13 percent.
That's brought out the well-worn denunciations of the unfairness of a tax code that permits filthy rich guys like Romney to pay proportionately less than their secretaries. [For one thing, he is following the laws which Congress has passed and a President has signed.]
There's absolutely no use trying to explain to these crusaders for justice that Romney pays 13 percent because 1.) He reduces his taxable income with millions in charitable donations, and 2.) His income derives primarily from capital gains on investments, which are taxed at a lower rate than income from a paycheck.
Investment income gets a tax break because the government wants people to invest. Investment creates jobs, spurs development, expands the economy and ultimately reaps greater tax revenues.
When George W. Bush lowered the capital gains tax to its current 15 percent rate from 20 percent, revenue from the tax soared over the next three years and helped the nation avoid the severe economic downturns that easily could have followed the 9/11 terrorist attack, the Iraq War or Hurricane Katrina.
The host committee for the Democratic National Convention is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with featuring Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though Democrats earlier denied a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event. 
Watch the promotional video via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which claims it is hosting the event “at the Democratic National Convention.”
The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video “picks up” considerably:
The ad is sure to provoke massive consternation on the left, which has been in a frenzy ever since Special Operations for America launched. The event at which the ad launches, “Defending Our Defenders: A Salute to the United States Military,” will feature a tribute by Congressman Louie Gohmert, former members of SEAL Team Six, Army Rangers, Gold Star parents, and a few surprise guests.
Ryan Zinke, the former Navy SEAL who started the super PAC, spoke exclusively with Breitbart News today. “The ad itself accurately portrays where this President is,” said Zinke. “It accurately portrays his core belief that America should not lead. This president is shaping America to be one of the followers, to relinquish our role as a world leader. I didn’t fight 23 years as a Navy SEAL to watch America bow to anybody.”  [Do yourself a favor and watch the powerful 30 sec. video]
 Ellen Barkin Hopes Hurricane Kills 'Every Pro-Life, Xenophobic, Gay-Bashing SOB' At The RNC. [So, I've seen my last Ellen Barkin movie..]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Police in Tampa stopped a dozen anti-war protesters from entering an event attended by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after the group said it intended to arrest her for war crimes.
The protesters from Code Pink carried handcuffs Tuesday and tried to enter a performing arts center. Rice was attending an event in conjunction with the Republican National Convention. They said they wanted to make a citizen's arrest of Rice, who was Secretary of State when the Iraq War started.
A former fifth-grade teacher implicated in a cheating scandal reportedly gave students the illegal assistance because she thought they were “dumb as hell--
Many children, more than you might think, actually survive failed abortions and are born alive. I know because I’m one of them,” Ohden says in the SBA List ad. “When he was in the Illinois state Senate, Barack Obama voted to deny basic constitutional protections for babies born alive from an abortion – not once, but four times."
She concludes: “I know it’s by the grace of God I’m alive today, if only to ask America this question: is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward, that will discard the weakest among us? How will you answer?”
Ezra Taft Benson former Sec Of Agriculture under Eisenhower recounting a discussion he had With Khrushchev…
“I have personally witnessed the heart rendering results of the loss of freedom. I have talked face to face with a Godless Communist leader. It may surprise you to learn that I was host to Mr. Khrushchev for a half day when he visited the U.S. I’m not proud of it. I opposed his coming in and I still feel it was a mistake to welcome this atheistic murderer as a state visitor but according to President Eisenhower, Khrushchev had expressed the desire to learn something of American agriculture and after seeing Russian agriculture, I can understand why.
“As we talked face to face, he indicated that my grandchildren would live under communism. After assuring him that I planned to do all in my power to assure that his and all other grandchildren would live under freedom, he arrogantly declared in substance, ‘You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright but we will keep feeding strong doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like over ripe fruit into our hands.’” Ezra Taft Benson, former Sec. Of Agriculture under Eisenhower recounting a discussion he had With Khrushchev

Khrushchev also said in 1961 in his inimitable, boorish manner that Americans were those who if “you spit in their face, they call it dew.” In Bucharest, Rumania in 1962 he said, “But we do not want to make war on America or anyone else. We believe that some day the red flag will fly over the U.S. too but the American people will raise it.”
