It began with a video of one of the Obamacare architects admitting that the passage of Obamacare, with its extreme lack of transparency, required "Stupid American voters" to get the law passed.
The mainstream media, along with most Progressives by the way, was fully onboard, while a vast majority of conservative Americans railed against the law's passage.
Now, the second most powerful elected official in the US government, Vice President Biden, has stated that in Washington DC, the term "Middle Class" refers to "not being sophisticated."
And, the word "middle-class" is certainly "not a compliment," states Biden.
According to the dictionary, the Obama regime thinks of normal Americans in this way:
"not having or showing a lot of experience and knowledge about the world and about culture, art, literature, etc. : not highly developed or complex : not sophisticated: asa : not changed or corrupted : genuineb (1) : not worldly-wise : lacking social or economic sophistication (2) : lacking complexity of structure : simple,straightforward <an unsophisticated analysis>"
Isn't it fascinating that the truth about how the Progressive Democrats within government actually feel about the vast majority of Americans, is only coming out in the final two years of what is ultimately being considered as a failed administration?

MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's long-range bombers will conduct regular patrol missions from the Arctic Ocean to the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico, the military said Wednesday, a show of muscle reflecting tensions with the West over Ukraine.
A statement from Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu came as NATO's chief commander accused Moscow of sending new troops and tanks into Ukraine — a claim quickly rejected by Russia.
Shoigu said the tensions with the West over Ukraine would require Russia to also beef up its forces in the Crimea, the Black Sea Peninsula that Russia annexed in March.
He said Russian long-range bombers will conduct flights along Russian borders and over the Arctic Ocean. He added that "in the current situation we have to maintain military presence in the western Atlantic and eastern Pacific, as well as the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico."
He said that the increasing pace and duration of flights would require stronger maintenance efforts and relevant directives have been issued to industries.
Russian nuclear-capable strategic bombers were making regular patrols across the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans during Cold War times, but the post-Soviet money crunch forced the military to cut back. The bomber patrol flights have resumed under President Vladimir Putin's tenure.
Earlier this year, Shoigu said that Russia plans to expand its worldwide military presence by seeking permission for navy ships to use ports in Latin America, Asia and elsewhere for replenishing supplies and doing maintenance. He said the military was conducting talks with Algeria, Cyprus, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Cuba, Seychelles, Vietnam and Singapore.
Shoigu said Russia was also talking to some of those countries about allowing long-range bombers to use their air bases for refueling.
A senior U.S. military official said that Russia has not previously flown actual bomber patrols over the Gulf of Mexico, including during the Cold War.
Long-range bombers have been in the area before, but only to participate in various visits to the region when the aircraft stopped over night at locations in South or Central America. During the Cold War, other types of Russian aircraft flew patrols there, including surveillance flights and anti-submarine aircraft.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss the flights publicly, also said that the pace of Russian flights around North America, including the Arctic, have largely remained steady, with about five incidents per year.
Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, declined to call this a Russian provocation. He said the Russians have a right, like any other nation, to operate in international airspace and in international waters. The important thing, Warren said, is for such exercises to be carried out safely and in accordance with international standards.
Ian Kearns, director of the European Leadership Network, a London-based think tank, said the bomber patrols were part of Kremlin's efforts to make the Russian military "more visible and more assertive in its actions."
The new bomber flights "aren't necessarily presaging a threat," Kearns said. "They are just part of a general ramping-up of activities."
But he said "the more instances you have of NATO and Russian forces coming close together, the more chance there is of having something bad happening, even if it's not intentional."
On Monday, the European Leadership Network issued a report that found a sharp rise in Russian-NATO military encounters since the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea, including violations of national airspace, narrowly avoided mid-air collisions, close encounters at sea, harassment of reconnaissance planes, close overflights over warships and Russian mock bombing raid missions.
Three of the nearly 40 incidents, the think tank said, carried a "high probability" of causing casualties or triggering a direct military confrontation: a narrowly avoided collision between a civilian airliner and a Russian surveillance plane, the abduction of an Estonian intelligence officer and a large-scale Swedish hunt for a suspected Russian submarine that yielded no result.
In September, the report said, Russian strategic bombers in the Labrador Sea off Canada practiced cruise missile strikes on the U.S. Earlier this year, in May, the report said, Russian military aircraft approached within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the California coast, the closest such Russian military flight reported since the end of the Cold War.
Russia-West ties have dipped to their lowest point since Cold War times over the Kremlin's annexation of Crimea and support for pro-Russia insurgents in Ukraine. The West and Ukraine have continuously accused Moscow of fueling the rebellion in eastern Ukraine with troops and weapons — claims Russia has rejected.
Fighting has continued in the east despite a cease-fire agreement between Ukraine and the rebels signed in September, and Ukraine and the West accused Russia recently of sending in new troops and weapons.
U.S. Gen. Philip Breedlove said Wednesday that in the last two days "we have seen columns of Russian equipment, primarily Russian tanks, Russian artillery, Russian air defense systems and Russian combat troops entering into Ukraine."
Breedlove, who spoke in Sofia, Bulgaria, wouldn't say how many new troops and weapons have moved into Ukraine and wouldn't specify how the alliance obtained the information. The Russian Defense Ministry quickly rejected Breedlove's statement as groundless.
Breedlove said that the Russia-Ukraine border is "completely wide open," and "forces, money, support, supplies, weapons are flowing back and forth across this border completely at will."
"We need to get back to a situation where this international border is respected," he said.

NEW YORK – Dengue hemorrhagic fever has been added to the list of diseases brought by the surge of “unaccompanied minors” who have illegally entered the U.S. this year.
“The big picture here is that we are getting all these diseases brought into the United States by the ‘imported disease people’ from Latin America,” Dr. Lee Hieb, past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, explained to WND in an interview.
“We don’t generally test for dengue fever, because until recently we have not had hordes of people coming into the United States from areas of the world like Latin America where dengue fever is endemic,” said Hieb, a WND columnist.
“With other diseases, like TB, we generally test to see if immigrants coming into the United States legally have the disease. But if your one of the ‘chosen few’ coming into the United States illegally from Latin America, the U.S. does no health screening whatsoever.”
In March, as the Ebola outbreak was first becoming evident in West Africa, the United Nations World Health Organization warned the incidence of dengue hemorrhagic fever had “grown dramatically” around the world in recent decades. At least 2.5 billion people, more than 40 percent of the world’s population, are now at risk from dengue, and the WHO anticipated some 50 to 100 million dengue infections would occur worldwide every year.
The WHO has documented that before 1970, only nine countries had experienced severe dengue epidemics. The disease has been diagnosed in more than 100 countries in Africa, Latin America, Indonesia, the Eastern Mediterranean, Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific.
As WND reported Oct. 29, dengue hemorrhagic fever mosquito has surfaced in San Diego and Los Angeles, with suspicion growing the disease-bearing mosquitoes have been carried into the United States on the clothing and baggage of the “unaccompanied minors.”
In addition to dengue hemorrhagic fever, the mosquito can also transmit diseases such as Chikungunya, which brings paralyzing joint pain and yellow fever. The two diseases are ravaging not only Africa but also Latin America.
While dengue hemorrhagic fever is typically not fatal, the WHO documents the disease causes a severe, flu-like illness that affects infants, young children and adults, with symptoms that include severe headache, pain behind the eyes, muscle and joint pains, nausea, vomiting, swollen glands and rash.
“The big picture here is that the United States has spent millions of dollars over the last hundred years to rid ourselves of some of these diseases that were once endemic in America,” Hieb explained. “Malaria is much like dengue fever in that it is transmitted by mosquitoes. But the main problem is that Latin American illegal immigrants are being allowed to enter the United States that are infected by diseases like malaria and dengue fever.”
Hieb explained why allowing into the U.S. illegal immigrants already infected by diseases such as malaria and dengue fever increases the risk of starting an epidemic of a disease that was once thought to have been eradicated in the country.....

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that President Obama was “looking forward” to implementing immigration reform through executive action during an interview Tuesday.
Ramos asked Earnest how Americans could be assured that there would be “no more delays” in taking executive action on immigration.
“The president made a promise in the Fall that if congress didn’t act that the president himself would take executive action to try to solve the problems of our broken immigration system before the end of the year,” Earnest said. “The president is disappointed that this legislative solution won’t be achieved, but the president is looking forward to taking executive action on his own to solve as many of these problems as he can.”
Earnest has all but confirmed that Obama has no intention of reaching a legislative solution with the incoming Republican Congress, preferring to blame House Republicans for the absence of legislation.
“We’re very disappointed that House Republicans have blocked a common sense proposal that passed in bipartisan fashion through the Senate that would be really good for the economy,” Earnest said. “It would also provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants who are living in the shadows here.”
