Hundreds Of People Show Up At Arizona Capitol To Protest Against Shutdowns

Published

One of the things we’re seeing on almost daily basis is the rising up of American patriots who are ready to do battle against government overreach for strangling their livelihoods and stripping away their freedoms in the name of safety.

Hundreds of protesters took to Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, located across the street from the state Capitol of Arizona in Phoenix to protest the shutdown enacted by Gov. Doug Ducey back in March that extends through the end of April.

Most folks will think this is insane, but the real reason these folks are out protesting has little to do with them wanting to open everything up all at once as these individuals are being accused of by liberal media. What they really want is to not be forced to abide by laws and regulations that destroy their ability to provide for themselves.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Organized on Facebook by a group called Reopen Arizona, several hundred people filled the park, played music and listened to speeches over a loudspeaker. Notably, many were not wearing masks or practicing social distancing as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have stressed when out in public. Signs were on display with sayings such as “#endthefearrany” and stories about how the order has shut down their small businesses.

A large bus wrapped in President Donald Trump signs was parked in one of the lots along with a fire engine that hoisted an American flag into the sky with its ladder.

The vast majority of the signs held at the protest stated that the people are unhappy with the shutdown orders and feel it is an infringement of their liberties.

The media has reached out to Gov. Doug Ducey’s office to get his take on the protests, but as of this writing he has not responded.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
