Skip to comments.Obama's press secretary decorates home with Soviet propaganda
Posted on 04/11/2014 3:10:09 PM PDT by ilovesarah2012
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month's Washingtonian magazine.
It's the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite. In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary's tie costs ($135).
But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters. They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a president who is constantly accused of being a socialist himself.

“Shipman is the daughter of the late Morgan Shipman, Professor of Law at The Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law. She graduated from Worthington High School in Worthington, Ohio in 1980. In 2006, she was recognized by Worthington Schools as a Distinguished Alumni during Convocation. She is a 1986 graduate of Columbia College of Columbia University and also holds a master’s degree from Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs. She is divorced from former CNN Moscow bureau chief Steve Hurst. She and her second husband, Jay Carney, have a son and a daughter. Carney is the current White House press secretary, having been appointed on January 27, 2011.
Shipman’s broadcast career started with a decade-long stint at CNN. From 1997 to May 2001 Ms. Shipman served as White House Correspondent for NBC News and appeared on NBC Nightly News and The Today Show. She joined ABC News in May 2001, and frequently contributes to other ABC News programs, such as World News Tonight and Nightline. She is a substitute anchor on both Good Morning America and World News Tonight, as well as a regular participant in the “roundtable” segment of ABC News’ This Week with Christiane Amanpour. Before joining ABC News, she was a White House correspondent for NBC News.
On June 2, 2009, Harper Collins published Womenomics, a book written by Shipman and BBC World News America correspondent Katty Kay exploring the redefinition of success for working women based on recent trends of the value of women to the business world.”
She seems to have a fascination with Russia.
His kid looks like what my husband calls a FFA - future fag of America.
Well, don’t they look like they’re enjoying the high life? Just like the old Politburo officials. These people make me want to projectile vomit.
“She seems to have a fascination with Russia.”
Probably the old USSR instead of Russia today.
Perhaps she dreams of a USSA.
Neo-Soviet propaganda gets plastered all over FR every single day, so... what’s his FR nick?
That looks like our Sunday brunch table every week! Snort!
Also that ridiculous jenga set looks like it could kill you.
Isn’t that pissa. The gulags are hip this year.
How do you know he isn’t?
Those people must eat more plastic fruit than an entire 3rd world nation.
There’s another food there to feed a Bulimic track team.
Michelle would frown on such bounty - that’s a whole egg instead of an egg white, the pastries probably don’t conform to the recommended 50% whole grain content, to say nothing of the carbs. And with so much food covering every surface, the children may not make good choices and overeat as well.
There is so much “fake” in that photograph. It is almost like one of those “spot the error” games in reverse.
Color-coded pajamas on all three
News anchors get made up at work, not before they get out of bed
Two kids, house is spotless (that includes the carefully arranged ‘messy blueberries’ on the counter)
Three people and enough food to feed five times that number is neatly decorating the counters like a restaurant buffet.
Even the kid’s egg looks fake!
I’m pretty sure you can leave off the ‘future’ part.
ultra fake pic...just look at the shadows
Nikita, Alinsky,Ayers, Dorhn, Rev Wright, Obama, Michelle, Carney... Bids of a feather...
Obama a Marxist in College?: John C. Drew Sheds Light on Obama College Years
The Obama college years remain a black hole in Obama’s past. We really don’t know much about Obama’s college years other than the first few college years were a blur of drug usage and partying.
Now a college professors who knew Obama in college is shedding some light on the Obama college years. Drugs may not be the only thing Obama dabbled with in college. The professor posted a blog and is conducted interviews on Obama’s intrigue with Marxism.
This story isn’t new. The mainstream media including Fox News ignored the story. Dr. John C. Drew claims he was a Marxist as well when he enrolled in college himself.
Drew had an encounter with Obama to specifically discuss Marxism. He was dating a girl who knew Barack Obama. His girlfriend came home one day excited wanting Drew to meet this man, knowing their philosophical views were similar. They eventually went out to dinner, drinks, partied, and discussed each other’s Marxist views. Drew discusses more about the conversation in the video interview below.
Drew describes himself as a serious Marxist, including being an enemy of the US government, while he was in college. When they met, Drew describes Obama’s views were parallel with Drew’s views. He was one of the brotherhood, ready for revolution. Obama wasn’t just an explorer of intellectual Marxism. He embraced Marxist Leninism.
Drew says Obama was in 100% agreement with his Marxist professors in college. He looked forward to a revolution in this country to overturn the power structure. This is a fascinating interview, because we may be seeing those revolutionary efforts engaged in front of us as Obama’s policies appear to be dooming the country more than helping.
Drew has a Communist radar like gay men have gaydar. He has no doubt that Obama was a hard-core Marxist in college. I don’t think this comes to any surprise as we have watched Obama wiggle around the Socialist label, while his critics have gone as far as equating socialism to racism. Of course Obama is working to give the power to the state by creating more dependency on the central government. This interview will further confirm what most of us suspect. Obama’s roots are placed in the Communist Manifesto and other radical documents like Rules for Radicals—which is socialist/communist propaganda.
Obama may have been a Marxist in college, but he converted to crony capitalism in his Chicago years.
Now it’s all about the money for him and his supporters.
Notice the 4 egg cups on the counter with soft boiled eggs in them- so why do they have a fried egg. I am so sick of all these effing people they make my skin crawl.
I hope they all get pecked by a disgruntled chicken.
Suck on that, peasants!
It is amazing the connections the MSM has to the Obama administration.
Looks like a JC Penney ad, except it needs another mommy.
Hugo is also the name of the evil ventriloquist’s dummy who comes to life in the cheesy 60’s Brit horror movie DEVIL DOLL.
Well, the kid would have been likely born in 2001, two years after the Rock Star hit #1 on the Socialist Thug charts.
Carney is not a yag? That’s surprising.
As a good DC Democrat he no doubt sends his kids to DC public schools
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Sidwell & Friends, of course.
It lends him gravitas when discussing the disparity between the rich and the poor.
No Just a Phony.
Hmmm...without reading the article, I summed it up perfectly.
Well, that is where she brings her ideas from.
What boy that age would agree to wearing red skin tight slacks ( or are they leotards?)? What real boy would wear black and white checkered slip on shoes?
Who are these people?
That is good. Barry you...
Sort of like “Eff You”.
I never eat that many melons in a year. Costs too much.
Do you know any boys who dress like that? I don't!
I think you’re right, Agnes.
this photo should give Moosechelle a heart attack:
2 fruit bowls, a plate of flapjacks and bacon, hard boiled eggs and scones in the foreground.
A platter of sausages and meats behind the sink, with sliced bread next to it
A fruit shortcake on a pedastal, with a 3 monsters stack of monster flapjacks just below and a huge plate of pastries, including a teddy-bear-shaped pastry next to that, balancing out a handful of melons.
I don’t even notice the people in the picture! It’s an ad for food!
