What's Up With the Newsweek/Michelle Obama Apple Cover?
HillBuzz ^ | March 16, 2010 | HillBuzz

Posted on 03/16/2010 4:34:21 AM PDT by PennsylvaniaMom

Why is there a portrait of Karl Marx in the apple sitting in front of our “fashion icon” First Lady, in her latest appearance on the cover of Newsweek (which replaces her bulbous giant belts with Nosferatu nails as the de rigeur accessory for spring)?

What is going on? Just when you think things can't get weirder...

Saw this on HillBuzz...thought the Boyz were having 'fun' with photoshop...but NO. This WAS ACTUALLY ON THE NEWSWEEK SITE (though it is now scrubbed; but alot of bloggers have screen caps).

Karl Marx (or his stand in) appears in the 'shine' of the 'healthy' apple infront of our FLOTUS. The official Newsweek site has now cropped the image (so elbows...and dang...buff arms, along with the apple are MIA) so what gives? A Republican mole on the staff at Newsweek? Or a subliminal message?

Inquiring minds...

They took down all the traditional paintings in the white house and replaced it with their crap.

She probably has a huge portrait of karl marx in her favorite room of the white house that she posed in

I’m shocked those nails aren’t three inches long with palm trees airbrushed on, plus rhinestones.

I saw this cover when I was doing a google search.

I don't remember seeing Karl Marx on the apple though.

I think this is a hoax.

Code Red” - House Target List on Health Care

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

Congressional Dems on Twitter
http://www.arrghpaine.com/congressional-dems-on-twitter

And here are toll-free numbers we can use to call any Senators or Reps.
At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

We need to use these toll free numbers that have been set up for the health care/ BO supporters and illegals to use! After all they are FREE!

Actually, it appears MO is photoshopped. This Marxist apple portrait isn’t consistent with how she looks in news photos.

As far as the campaign against childhood obesity goes:
she sets a poor example with the extra pounds behind her.

Just another white house marxist on the cover of a struggling magazine.

Two questions -- they continue to say Altmire is a yes vote but just today on Fox he says he is troubled by the abortion language in the bill and unless it changes he cannot vote yea.

by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

When did they announce March 18th?

Newsweek forgot to remove it from their subscription site. It’s small but you can still see the image. https://www.newsweeksubscriptions.com/gfx/covers/cover_200x299.jpg before they pull it.

It is still on their site though on the subscription link - they’ve cropped it from the front page after HillBuzz Tweeted about it.

This isn’t a photoshop - it’s genuine from Newsweek.

Grab it before it’s scrubbed.

Yeap - they were not quick enough covering their rears before people grabbed it.

I did see on HillBuzz in he comments another website was accusing Hill of photoshopping the pic. Enough people had grabbed it off of Newsweaks site to prove that theory wrong....
