Obama's press secretary decorates home with Soviet propaganda
theweek.com ^ | April 11, 2014 | Michael Brendan Dougherty

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.

I didn't know Jay Carney was married to Claire Shipman. I always thought Carney was gay.

“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.[3] 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.

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!

Obama a Marxist in College?: John C. Drew Sheds Light on Obama College Years

2/13/2010

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2451031/posts?page=1

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.

Shipman and Carney’s son, Hugo James Carney, on the other hand, spends a lot more time styling his red hair. “He’s 12 going on 16,” says Shipman. During the shoot, Hugo walked up to everyone on the production crew, held out his hand for a firm shake, and said, “Hello, I’m Hugo, nice to meet you”; to say he is a well-mannered tween is an understatement. Hugo and Della both attend Sidwell Friends School.

Suck on that, peasants!

Hugo eh?
Wouldn't be named after some former Venezuelan 'rock star' ('rock star' to Hollywood and other Marxist camp followers) would he?
Hopefully they are just Victor Hugo fans ... but I have my suspicions.

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!
