Barack, dude.

Oh, Barack Obama. A name, a voice, a face most people don’t miss saying, hearing, or looking at – whether they’ll come out and admit it or not. What that man did to America for nearly one full decade will go down in history, but not for good reasons.

On Friday, it was reported that Barack alluded to Nazi Germany when referring to President Trump and his base of supporters.

Isn’t he just the sweetest guy!?

From TDW:

Former President Obama took aim at President Donald Trump’s base during a private phone call Tuesday with Democratic donors, and reportedly even alluded to Nazi Germany when he claimed Trump is consciously tapping into their fears and redirecting them “in nativist, racist, sexist ways.”

According to The New York Times, people who took notes of Obama’s comments during a Zoom call with actor George Clooney, Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and high-paying donors maintain that the former president also claimed that the idea of voter suppression influencing the 2020 presidential election keeps him up at night. The Zoom call on Tuesday sold out of tickets ranging from $250 to $250,000.

CONTINUED:

Regarding Trump’s base, Obama said, “It’s just glued to Fox News and Breitbart and Limbaugh and just this conservative echo chamber — and so, they’re going to turn out to vote. What he has unleashed and what he continues to try to tap into is the fears and anger and resentment of people who, in some cases, really are having a tough time and have seen their prospects, or communities where they left, declining. And Trump tries to tap into that and redirect in nativist, racist, sexist ways.”

Obama also appeared to obliquely reference the Third Reich to warn where such “darker impulses” might propel the nation if left unchecked. “The endpoint of that we saw in Europe 60 years ago, 70 years ago — what happens when those things get unleashed,” he said. “You don’t nip that in the bud, bad things can happen. Among the most quote unquote civilized societies.”

Here’s Barry at the funeral of Rep. John Lewis…

Give it up, 44. People are done with your shtick.

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.
