American Stupidity: Corona Beer Taking Hit for Coronavirus – 16 Percent Surveyed Thought Beer and Virus Related

Suppose you had happened to be named Keith Raniere and were no relation to the moron of the same name. Or Allison Mack.

Well another name is having troubles now. I am referring to Corona beer.

According to a survey, American beer drinkers are avoiding Corona, the beer, because it sounds like coronavirus.

According to a survey conducted by 5W Public Relations, 38 percent of beer drinkers said they would not buy Corona as the deadly virus spreads across the globe,

Just in case you did not know, there is no connection between the beer and the virus, except for the name. And, no, the beer did not cause the virus, and the virus is not named after the beer.

According to the SW survey, another 14 percent of respondents said they regularly consume Corona beer but would not, out of common decency, order Coronas in public.

May you never have a disease named after you.

There was also, and this is truly a sad commentary on the intelligence of the American people, some 16 percent of those surveyed said they were not sure whether the virus is related to Corona beer.

There is no link between coronavirus and Corona beer.

The survey queried 737 American beer drinkers.

Not everybody is shy about drinking Corona however. Students at the University of Albany threw an off-campus coronavirus-themed party that featured Corona, the beer. Smashed party goers were seen with a bucket of iced Corona beers next to a person wearing a surgical mask.

Corona beer isn’t making any changes to its advertising despite the name’s similarity to the deadly coronavirus. Constellation Brands said in a statement that its customers “understand there is no link between the virus and our business.”

At least some of them do.
But, even if you know they are not related, who can help but not think of the names being similar? As you open the bottle, and, as you sip the cool, refreshing yellow liquid with its medium white head. The nose so subtle with the barest suggestion of hops. A flavor, equally subtle, with just a bit of sweetness  — and its name is the same as a virus that could kill you.
Names are important.   Something similar dogged a good man, who not very long ago went to his final reward, the late Moe Lester.

“Sales of Corona remain very strong and we appreciate the continued support from our fans,” Constellation Brands spokesperson Stephanie McGuane told CNN Business. “Our advertising with Corona is consistent with the campaign we have been running for the last 30 years and is based off strong consumer sentiment.”

Drink up all you happy stockholders. Bill Newlands, CEO of Constellation Brands, said there is nothing to worry about.

Constellation is spending $40 million to launch its new Corona-branded hard seltzer. Part of the promotion includes an unhappily preplanned sponsored tweet that uses the phrase “coming ashore soon.”
Meantime, America waits to see the effects of how much of the coronavirus came ashore from China.
According to another survey conducted by YouGov, consumers’ intent to purchase Corona fell to its lowest level in two years. Constellation’s Newlands admitted that “misinformation” about the virus’ impact on Corona’s business is “extremely unfortunate.”
In fact, a spike in online searches for “corona beer virus” shows the level of misunderstanding the American public has.
Constellation Brands’ stock dropped 4% on Friday and 8% on Thursday, although the entire stock market has fallen sharply as fear grows about the spread of coronavirus.  The number of cases have climbed to 83,577 globally Friday. Nearly 3,000 people have died from the virus.
Meantime, it is not known how Budweiser, Coors and Miller officials feel about the choice of the name that the World Health Organization chose to bestow on the virus.
According to an unconfirmed Budweiser source, “While we all regret deeply the spread of this yellow scourge, the Corona beer virus, we want to assure the beer drinking public that Budweiser is safe to drink and will never turn yellow in the bottle.”
Of course, the corona virus is no laughing matter, especially to those who are afflicted, the relatives of the ailing and the deceased, the potential victims of the virus and the stockholders of Constellation Brands.
Please study up on the virus and take all precautions. But be advised that not drinking Corona beer is not one of them.

  • Following up on the story, it looks like it may have been a bit of fake news – there’s even another media claim of 38% rather than 16%, but it appears to be based on a misleading poll performed and then publicized by the PR agency 5WPR (see next for hints of their motive), and actually only about 4% of people aren’t drinking Corona because of (irrational) fear of the virus – the rest would probably just not ever drink it at all. Media outlets on both sides of the ideological spectrum fell for it; it was actually reporters at the Huffington Post and The Atlantic who led the fact-checking:

    Fox & CNN Report on Poll Claiming Coronavirus a ‘Disaster’ for Corona Beer — Conducted By PR Firm Repping Beverage Co.’s
    https://www.mediaite.com/news/fox-cnn-report-on-poll-claiming-coronavirus-a-disaster-for-corona-beer-conducted-by-pr-firm-repping-beverage-co-s/

    On the subject of quack cures, discussed earlier (somewhere below), apparently this has been circulating on WhatsApp – one also has to wonder who fabricated it, and what their motives are in spreading it:

    “Good news, Wuhan’s corona virus can be cured by one bowl of freshly boiled garlic water. Old Chinese doctor has proven it’s efficacy. Many patients has also proven this to be effective. Eight (8) cloves of chopped garlics add seven (7) cups of water and bring to boil., Eat and drink the boiled garlic water, overnight improvement and healing. Glad to share this.”

    And of course, conspiracy theories are cropping up like mushrooms. I find it fascinating when there are multiple, mutually contradictory conspiracy theories – the raw probability of any one of them being true drops below 50%, and yet their proponents seem to believe in the unlikely variations as fervently as flat-earthers.

    Apparently one of the latest variants is that the Chinese stole the coronavirus from a Canadian lab – apparently with no good explanation for why the Canadians were cooking up such a thing.

    And of course some of the QAnons believe that the virus is not just being exploited by the deep state, but was actually cooked up by those nefarious forces who “planned” its release – though I don’t think that explains why it showed up in China first.

    Finally, a conspiracy theory that I made up off the top of my head while commenting last week, is indeed out in the wild: that the coronavirus is actually a bio-weapon engineered by the CIA as a way to wage war on China – though with no explanation of why it was then haplessly allowed to spread in the US.

  • This is a big scam

    When Trump got elected, the USA was going down the tube. And now, the USA is doing great.

    They can not deal with that, because they want a New World order. And to get it the USA must fall

    They have tried the Russian Hoax, the Ukraine hoax, the impeachment and everything except the kitchen sink.

    Now, they are trying to blame Trump for the Coronavirus.

    They will use whatever they find against Trump. And now that 7 billion have been allocated to fight the virus in the US, I bet a lot of people are rubbing their hands together in anticipation. This is a big money grab. Look at which States are losing sanctuary city funding, then look at their infection (or observation) numbers. I don’t know how it could be more obvious. I’m not even sure the money will stay open the US. Hope they put tracers on all of the Coronabucks going out

    • Apparently much too late:

      “Coronavirus has been spreading in Washington State for more than six weeks and HUNDREDS could be undiagnosed, say experts as panic buying spreads and new cases are reported in Rhode Island and Illinois following first US death”
      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8062775/Coronavirus-likely-spreading-undetected-Washington-state-SIX-WEEKS-confirmed-cases-hit-8.html

      It may have spread in part due to botched administration-ordered evacuations, and then policy that prohibited the health care system from testing for possible cases of community transmission:

      Coronavirus evacuees passed through California military base. Did safety plan break down?
      “Although team members [from the HHS Administration for Children and Families sent to Travis Air Force Base] had gloves at times and masks at other times, they lacked full protective gear and received no training on how to protect themselves in a viral hot zone, according to a description provided to the Associated Press. They had no respirators but noticed that workers from the CDC were in full gear to protect them from getting sick.”
      https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/health-and-medicine/article240767626.html

      “Another issue emerged after the first U.S. case of coronavirus of an unknown origin surfaced in northern California on Wednesday. State officials there scrambled to track down anyone who might have come into contact with the woman, who arrived at UC Davis Medical Center [from Solano County hospital – 20 miles from Travis] on Feb. 19 from another hospital on ventilator support.

      State and federal officials disagree on how long it took to get approval to test the woman, the Associated Press reported. But one hospital memo claims that hospital officials couldn’t get approval to test the woman for four days because she didn’t meet strict testing criteria. Those criteria included travel to China or exposure to someone who had traveled to China.

      The case is suspected to be the first instance of community spread of the virus in the United States.”

      Though the good news is, its undetected spread shows that in many cases its symptoms and severity are more or less indistinguishable from normal flu. It looks like we may find out the hard way, whether among susceptible populations like those with compromised health and the elderly, the mortality rate will be as high as it has been reported in China.

      • AnonyMaker,

        My post was sarcastic in nature. I will give you some news before it’s released….Coronavirus is in greater Boston and the announcement will be made later this week. I am not kidding. Odds are we will survive as long as you are healthy and under 50 you have nothing to worry about.

        Kids under 9 have absolutely nothing to worry about so far the under 9 group cohort has not had single fatality.

        On the bright-side Coronavirus may solve the Social Security time bomb. People over 80+ have a 1 in 10 chance of dying.

        Below is the Mortality rate for Coronavirus by age group:

        • Re Tons of Chinese:

          I forgot to mention the travel restrictions are BS. The Chinese in my town and the towns outside of Boston have more extended family from China here now than you can shake a stick at.

          They have flooded in the last 2 weeks. It’s happening all over the greater Boston area. I feel like I’m living in Peking(Beijing). LOL

        • NiceGuy, I do get your sarcasm!!!! I just play the straight man a little too seriously 🙂

          Interesting about Boston. Given what happened in Washington State, it wouldn’t be surprising to find that the virus had spread undetected in quite a few locations. It will be interesting to see how those who believe that everything the current administration does is genius, and conspiracy theorists, spin that – I think it’s predictable that the two would sort of work hand-in-hand to come up with a narrative blaming it on the supposed “deep state”.

          Coronavirus may have spread undetected for weeks in U.S.
          ‘“I believe we’re facing an already substantial outbreak in Washington State that was not detected until now due to narrow case definition requiring direct travel to China.”
          ….
          Health officials in Washington state and across the nation said they expect numbers will continue to rise in the wake of the decision by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week to widen testing guidelines. ‘
          https://www.boston.com/news/health/2020/03/01/coronavirus-may-have-spread-undetected-for-weeks-in-u-s

          • Excellent post thank you!!!!

            The one positive thing I can say about the coronavirus is that it’s not killing people under the age of nine thank God!!!!

            The only good thing is that the warm weather is coming, and it can’t come soon enough. I’m hoping things really warm up here or us help out slowing the spreading of the virus.

            I’m hoping by late spring or early summer the rate of infection will go all the way down to almost 0 just like the cold and the flu.

            The vaccine is probably not gonna materialize for almost a year or more because even if they find a vaccine it’s gonna take them a while to make enough of it; not to mention the scientists have to test it thoroughly.

        • RE Massachusetts Coronavirus Update:

          Massachusetts has 680 people in quarantine so far, meaning they are monitored just in case they present symptoms. While 377 completed their monitoring with no symptoms, 231 are still under self-quarantine in their homes.

          Thank you Massachusetts technology sector for hiring so many Chinese national!!! God bless!!!!

      • Tomorrow is going to be one of the most important days for the Democrats of all time.

        It’s going to decide whether or not the Democratic Party is going to have a shit-show for the party nomination/democratic convention.

  • No wonder the muzzy brotherhood anonyfaker is all bent outta shape

    https://www.who.int/csr/don/archive/country/sau/en/

    It’s been around forever. There’s like 20 different kinds of it now. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3185465/

    Coronavirus is literally just a particular genome that causes several respiratory diseases (including the COMMON COLD, the flu, and bronchitis).

    That’s MERS. It’s a different coronavirus strain that spread because diaperheads were fucking camels.

    This isn’t the first coronavirus. SARS and MERS are two other famous coronavirus outbreaks

    • You have that wrong, and must not have been paying close attention – I was just chiding those who were “all bent outta shape” as if this coronavirus was anything more than exactly the sort of mundane thing you point out it is, though apparently a somewhat nastier than average variant.

      p.s. If you’d paid really close attention you’d have noticed that I’m actually involved in church ministry. From that, I know that whoever leads whatever congregation you might belong to, would be quite dismayed and would counsel you on the error of your ways if they ever saw the sort references you make to people of other faiths; and if you’re not religious, surely your mother or grandmothers would be ashamed to see what you write.

  • The almighty Globalist prophet Bill Gates

    “If we do a great job with vaccines, we can get the (population) percentage numbers lowered.”

    -Bill GatesYouTube (listen at the 2:40 mark)

    Here he isYouTube discussing… or foreshadowing a virus outbreak.

    And then, of course, there was Event 201, Bill Gates & World Economic Forum simulated Coronavirus outbreak 6 weeks before the first case in Wuhan.

    • Wow, talk about American stupidity….

      I tracked down the video (which you failed to provide a link to) and no, it does not contain that. Gates starts out by saying:

      “Well, over this decade, we believe unbelievable progress can be made both in inventing new vaccines and making sure they get out to all the children who need them. We can cut the number of children who die every day from about 9 million to half of that, if we have success on it. And the benefits there in terms of reducing sickness, reducing the population growth, it really allows society a chance to take care of itself once you’ve made that intervention.”

      Note that he’s talking about saving lives, so that children grow up to be adults – but also managing to reduce population growth (that third word is key). If you knew anything about how the world actually works, you’d know that the two go hand in hand, as overpopulation results in part from people having too many children out of fear of losing them to disease, so reducing childhood deaths is a key factor in stabilizing population.

      Are you lying about the actual contents of the video because you have some agenda – or did you fall for someone else who does, because you failed to fact-check?

      Hey, but if you want a depopulation conspiracy theory, consider that it’s now being revealed that the administration has allowed the coronavirus to spread in the US for about 6 weeks, delaying preventive measures until now a pandemic may be inevitable. And the person put in charge of dealing with it, Pence, implemented a policy when he was governor of Indiana, that downplayed disease prevention and resulted in the worst localized outbreak of HIV/AIDS in the US – would you see that as small-scale test of depopulation, in preparation for what is now being implement nation-wide?

    • 14?! The Spanish number system ends at 15, “quince” (pronounced keen-theh in Spain, keen-say in most of Latin America), as in the all-important quinceañera. German and English both only go to twenty, which is only a third better.

      • I’m a computer programmer I start counting at zero….

        Plus I was only being sarcastic! I was making fun of KC!!!!!

        I have no problem with the Mexican people. They’re God-fearing Christian folk that are Catholics.

        Culturally, they’re actually very conservative; there are areas of Mexico where women, if they’re not wearing skirts, are frowned upon. Believe it or not.

        Plus they know how to have a Catholic confirmation party like nobody’s business.

        • And so you can only count up to 1 🙂

          I lived in Spain during the end of the Franco era, when widows were still expected to wear black in public – and chaperone their granddaughters’ dates. There are Latin American countries that are my choice to visit or live in over Mexico, generally the ones with nicer modern city life – and amazing nightlife, I don’t know how such large portions of the population manage to stay out past midnight even on weeknights – but I know when you get out into the countryside all bets are off about what you’ll find, including what language is spoken.

          p.s. Yes, I just checked, and as predicted, conspiracy theories blaming the virus on the supposed deep state are cropping up – along with ones I wouldn’t even have imagined, and of course multiple different ones that are mutually contradictory.

          • AnonyMaker,
            The news this morning is pretty depressing regarding the virus.

            How much longer until Hillary or the Jews get blamed for the virus?

  • George,

    It is Coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19…not coronavirus-16. Not that it really matters to your point, but you lose credibility when your headline is wrong.

    There is so much misinformation being bandied about; Imo, it is all about feeding the Hystericals. All a person needs to do is visit a reputable website or more to find truth; but that is too logical, people would rather believe in conspiracies.

  • The Horrible Truth about the Corona Virus.

    Democrats are trying to use the Corona Virus as a Political Weapon against Donald Trump.
    This tactic is an act of desperation since it now appears likely that the Marxist Bernie Sanders will win the Democratic Presidential Nomination and pull down the entire Democratic ticket.

    The real blame for the Corona virus lies in the corrupt maniacal leadership of the Chinese Communist Party based in Beijing.
    These evil thugs have created a virus to cause a Global Pandemic and allow China to dominate the 21st Century.
    They took the Corona Virus a virus found within the Chinese anteater called the Pangolin and weaponized it by genetic engineering with more virulent viruses like the SARS virus.
    They created a Chimera virus that is more deadly and more virulent than it was before when it was two separate viruses.
    Wuhan China has a major bio-weapons laboratory located about a mile from the wild animal meat market where the Corona Virus first appeared.
    The evil half wits of the Chinese government failed to understand or even care that if this deadly Chimera virus got loose, the first victims would be the Chinese people themselves but ultimately this virus would threaten the whole world.

    And the advocates of Globalism and Free Trade have exported America’s factories and jobs to China making certain that if the Chinese economy collapses so would the American and world economies.
    These Globalist Free Trade halfwits include people like the economist Paul Krugman and the writer Thomas Friedman.

    Don’t Panic!

    Every year about 36,000 Americans die of the flu.
    This death toll is normal year in and year out.

    Statistics from China indicate that the death toll is higher among men than women because men are more likely to be smokers with already reduced lung capacity.

    Stop Smoking
    Wash your hands and use alcohol based wipes to reduce the risk of infection.

    Vote against any political candidate who advocates Open Borders, Free Trade and Globalism.

    Free Trade Is Economic Treason!
    Globalism Is Economic Treason!
    Open Borders Are Economic Treason!

    • It seems all the ideological true believers are going to have a conspiracy theory that fits, and reinforces, their worldview – similar, of course, to what went on inside NXIVM, when they blamed Kristin Snyder’s disappearance and Raniere’s commodities trading losses on nefarious schemes, and bogeymen like the Illuminati.

      The Russians say “Corona” refers to Trump’s previous career handing out crowns at the beauty pageants he owned, and that makes “the origins of the virus, and its intended goals, crystal clear” – it’s Americans that created and are spreading it:

        So far all we have are Guestimates.
        In the old Soviet Union the Communists played around with Anthrax at a lab in the city of Sverdlosk.
        The Anthrax was accidentally released and about a hundred people died of what is a rare infection.

        Sverdlovsk anthrax leak
        On 2 April 1979, spores of anthrax were accidentally released from a Soviet military research facility near the city of Sverdlovsk, Russia (now Yekaterinburg). The ensuing outbreak of the disease resulted in approximately 100 deaths, although the exact number of victims remains unknown. The cause of the outbreak was denied for years by the Soviet authorities, which blamed the deaths on consumption of tainted meat from the area, and subcutaneous exposure due to butchers handling the tainted meat. All medical records of the victims were removed to hide serious violations of the Biological Weapons Convention. The accident is sometimes referred to as “biological Chernobyl”.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sverdlovsk_anthrax_leak

        For me the flu is personal.
        My great grandfather died of the Spanish flu near the end of World War I.
        Donald Trump’s grandfather died of the Spanish flu around the same time.

        • Shadow;

          —So far all we have are Guestimates.

          Actually, the first 6 paragraphs were all facts!!!! Actual facts up to date as of today.

          My numbers were guesstimates and started at the 7th paragraph.

          Here it is in black in white. Most likely we are all going to live if we get the virus this year. By next year there will be a vaccine.

          This disease is many more times contagious and infectious than SARS or MERS. It’s like the human cold or FLU.

          The Democrats are fabricating this?

          And the whole world is as well?

          I’m young I’m most likely going to survive.

          You are 61 years of age you have a 3% chance of dying in your age group.

          81+-year-olds have a 14% chance of dying. Meaning, the odds are worse than 1 in 10.

          The good news, not one person younger than 9 has died!!!!!

          The even better news…The coronavirus may fix the Social Security time bomb. LMAO!!!!!! I’m serious. 🙂

          Sad, but true!!!! 😉

          Bangkok, you little sucker, you may survive us all. Have a nice night, dipshit!!!!

    • OMG, Shadow! There is not a shred of evidence to prove that this conspiracy theory has any truth to it. And If Molyneux is spreading this nonsense, you can guarantee its total bullshit.

      It’s quite ironic how you consider Allison Mack to be misogynistic, and yet you onstantly believe all the lies and bullshit that misogynists (such as Molyneux) spew out . Why??

        • Since Molyneux didn’t brand women you think that proves he’s not a misogynist?

          You seem to listen to Molyneux quite a bit, so you should know how misogynistic he is, but yet you give him a free pass.

    • Shadow.

      Here is some extra simple math:

      Average Mortality Rate

      Flu .095%
      Coronavirus 2%

      Now take 1 million people.

      1,000,000

      Flu kills 950

      Coronavirus kills 20,000

      19,500 more people die out of 1 million.

      Do you get the “difference”?

      Did you graduate the 5th grade?

      • Hey idiot, your Coronavirus has not killed 20,000. Keep the bullshit in your empty head. You sound like a brainwashed 2nd grader.

  • I had seen the headline about Corona sales dropping recently, but I assumed it was for subconscious reasons…. that maybe associated the name with the virus, and subconsciously chose a different brand.
    But these surveys tell a different story, or are some people just messing with the survey questions?…. because it’s hard to believe anyone could be that dumb, even a Q-Anon believer. Lol.

    • Subconscious reasons are almost certainly part of it, as well. It’s an unsettling reminder of just how prone we can be to influences like that. And it’s some of that same sort of phenomenon, that Raniere exploited with his use of suggestive and hypnotic techniques.

    • Bet flowers filled her frilly laced depends over all of these

      SARS, MERS, Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika, ebola, hepatitis (E and A), cholera, meningitis, various influenza strains (Swine flu, Hong Kong flu, H1N1…) and on backwards. It’s always something.

      Fear mongering and crashing the markets is frankly retarded.

  • Create an illness that has overlapping symptoms with the common cold and flu in the middle of cold and flu season. Anyone with a cough or a runny nose will think they’re going to die. This fear is exactly what they want.

    I mean fuck, I feel like I’m coming down with a cold and in the back of my mind I’m still thinking, “hmmm, what if this is it?”

    Coincidences? NEVER

    • Most or all of those were multi-year outbreaks, so it’s easy but inaccurate to try to pigeonhole them in odd-numbered election years. This for instance shows Ebola starting in the odd-numbered years of 2013 and Zika in 2015:

      The WHO lists outbreaks for each and every year of the 21st century – you could find something to fit virtually any conspiracy theory:

      If there are no coincidences, then why have you anonymously appeared out of nowhere to falsely conspiracy-monger, and try to get people to be suspicious of the democratic election process?

      Coronavirus: WHO chief warns against ‘trolls and conspiracy theories’

      “Russia’s Channel One, for example, has been airing coronavirus conspiracy theories on its prime-time evening news show Vremya (meaning “Time”). In one segment, the host links the virus to US President Donald Trump, and claims that US intelligence agencies or pharmaceutical companies are behind it.

      Another debunked conspiracy theory, published in British and US tabloid media, linked the virus to a video of a Chinese woman eating bat soup. Reports claimed the clip was filmed in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus, when the outbreak was first reported. However it was filmed in 2016 and was in Palau, in the western Pacific Ocean – not China.”

      • Keep pitching the bullshit slick. You are good democrat voting bot.

        SARS, MERS, Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika, ebola, hepatitis (E and A), cholera, meningitis, various influenza strains (Swine flu, Hong Kong flu, H1N1…) and on backwards. It’s always something.

        Fear mongering and crashing the markets is frankly retarded.

      • Let’s ask some obvious questions.

        How are these “last 48 hours WuFlu” stats any different than the typical common seasonal flu stats?

        If we mitigate the “Chicken Little” narrative (DS assets in the MSM), a very different picture starts to surface. The Coronavirus reporting has an uncanny similarity to the Zika virus narrative from a few years ago.

        In fact, it appears the same Zika media blitz operation is again being used for the coronavirus operation. And we must also remember what Bill Gates and George Soros stated before the coronavirus ever got started.

        If we consider past evidence from the Zika virus, the 2009 Swine Flu, and the 2003 SARs pandemic frauds, how can ANYONE trust the WHO and CDC for providing us with truthful information?

        Recall that the WHO has been caught red-handed committing crimes against humanity.

Diseases are spread through filth and are mitigated by cleanliness. Where does the United States stand in comparison to sanitation infrastructure and hygiene as shitholes like Wuhan?

        • Speaking of American stupidity – among the most obvious of the various errors you make and facts you miss, is that cases of the coronavirus-19 are conclusively identified by genetic testing, which has shown that some have indeed been missed up until now because they were so very typically flu-like that they didn’t raise suspicion:

          Coronavirus may have spread in US for weeks, gene sequencing study suggests

          “Researchers examining the genomes of two people with the coronavirus in Washington State said the similarities between the two cases suggest the virus has been spreading in the state for nearly six weeks.
          ….
          Trevor Bedford, an associate professor at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington, was one of two scientists who compared the genetic sequences, the newspaper reported. Bedford said the genetic findings suggested the coronavirus had been spreading through other people in the community for nearly six weeks.
          ….
          However, Bedford told the newspaper that in both cases, the virus contained a rare genetic variation that was found in only two of the samples whose sequences have been shared from China.”

  • Yesterday morning I was eating breakfast in one of my morning hang outs.
    An acquaintance comes up to me and starts praising Bernie.

    “Shadow, what do you think of the election? Bernie seems like a good guy. So what if he praised Cuba. Castro did a lot of good things like teaching people to read.”

    I replied, “So the only way to teach literacy is to have a dictatorship with prison camps and secret police. How many people were executed by Castro to teach people to read and write?”

    “Well it’s America’s fault. America set up plantations in Cuba.”

    I had to respond, “Those Cuban plantations dated back to Colonial times when Cuba was a part of the Spanish Empire.”

    As long as half wits like my acquaintance exist Bernie has a chance of winning.

    America needs reform but America does not need Marxism and Bernie Sanders.

      QAnon-ers’ Magic Cure for Coronavirus: Just Drink Bleach!

      “As the global death toll from an alarming new coronavirus surged this week, promoters of the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory were urging their fans to ward off the illness by purchasing and drinking dangerous bleach.

      The substance—dubbed “Miracle Mineral Solution” or “MMS”—has long been promoted by fringe groups as a combination miracle cure and vaccine for everything from autism to cancer and HIV/AIDS.”

      https://www.thedailybeast.com/qanon-conspiracy-theorists-magic-cure-for-coronavirus-is-drinking-lethal-bleach

      • Now there’s a top rated source, The Daily Beast. LOL

        Just because some whack-job organization is pro-Trump doesn’t mean that Trump is pro-whack-job organization or that his other supporters are. LOL

        • You can verify for yourself that the “conservative” bleach nuts mentioned in the story, are indeed out there:

          https://www.jordansather.com/blog/thetruthaboutmms

          “The fact that the mainstream media is trying SO HARD to smear me over Chlorine Dioxide, and they’ve been doing it for weeks, leads me to believe that this stuff really could kill coronavirus in humans and they are desperate to cover that up.”

          “Not sure why people get triggered when I talk space. The evidence exists: electrogravitic propulsion developed decades ago, free energy systems shut down by the black suits, $billions into black projects, “alien reproduction vehicles” & more. There’s a whole other world out there”

          “POTUS slipped another “17” into his rally speech and the crowd cheered”

          “We wouldn’t have so many clouds in the Pacific Northwest if these planes in the sky would stop making them.”

          “The truth about the UFO phenomenon unlocks the secrets of hidden sciences, mind blowing technologies, and extraordinary understandings. This is why the Deep State has kept related intel under the highest classification and has fed the public so much disinformation on the subject.”

          “People who closely follow Q are light years ahead of those who don’t in geo-political understanding. They know how to see what’s happening behind the scenes. It’s almost a waste to try and talk shop with people who aren’t familiar with Q research.”

          • I never said there weren’t bleach nuts out there. In fact, there is probably a nut for every topic you can imagine. I say it has nothing to do with Trump or 99.999% of his supporters. On the other hand, Crazy Bernie’s followers….LOL

        • The same thing applies on the other end of the ideological spectrum.

          I recently pointed out to you that polling shows that something close to half of Trump voters essentially believe that Jesus could have ridden on a dinosaur – as depicted, for instance, at the “Museum of Earth History” in Dallas (apparently they only show Adam and Eve with a Tyrannosaurus, believing the Great Flood wiped out the dinosaurs a couple of thousand years before Jesus, though I don’t know then how they explain why Noah didn’t take any on the Ark). But it’s still about a third among Democrats in general.

          • And I recently pointed out to you how important it is to know the source of a poll. If it’s from a Libtard organization, it is designed to make conservatives look as stupid as possible. LOL

          • Anonyfaker makes Scott Johnson look intelligent. Rule of thumb, if it comes from anonyfaker, flowers or nice idiot, it is 99 percent propaganda.

        • I know I know it’s been said a million times before. If this guy was white it would international news. On every news anchors mouths. Every paper would put this as a headline. Dummy Dem Leftist would all be shouting, “I TOLD YOU!! I TOLD YOU!!”

        Flat out lies being levelled at President exposed by AP

        Democrats and the New York Times are blaming President Trump for the spread of the Coronavirus to the US, despite the fact that he presided over enhanced border controls and blocking flights from infected areas weeks ago.

        The AP noted Wednesday that both Mike Bloomberg and Joe Biden are flat out wrong in claims that Trump cut resources for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH).

        The fact check report states:

        Democratic presidential contenders are describing the federal infectious-disease bureaucracy as rudderless and ill-prepared for the coronavirus threat because of budget cuts and ham-handed leadership by President Donald Trump. That’s a distorted picture. For starters, Trump hasn’t succeeded in cutting the budget.

        He’s proposed cuts but Congress ignored him and increased financing instead. The National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aren’t suffering from budget cuts that never took effect.

        In addition, the budget cuts proposed by Trump had absolutely nothing to do with Coronavirus prevention preparedness, and were related to Ebola virus response, which was no longer needed at such high levels because the threat from the virus in the US has faded.

        “Some Democrats have charged that Trump decimated the nation’s public health leadership, but [John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health] said CDC’s top scientific ranks have remained stable during the past three years.” the AP fact check notes.

        Nevertheless, Democrats will willingly distort the facts and lie to the public to score political points.

      • I went on qresear.ch (the best way to scan the QAnon board) and did a search for _mms_. Sample post:

        “Guess who sits at the board of the daily beast?

        Chelsea Clinton.

        Guess what happened shortly after this article?

        Shills showed up and pushed mms drinking on here.”

        There’s quite an intelligent discussion going on there, if you can filter out the shills and stooges that infest the forum.

        If you’re going to drink a foreign beer, and are concerned about your health, try the original beer, Pilsner Urquell, “the world’s first golden lager, unlike anything most beer drinkers at the time had ever seen.”
        http://allaboutbeer.com/article/pilsner-urquell/

        It’s regarded as medicinal in the Czech Republic and is taken in moderation. It has less than 20 ppm gluten. In my opinion there’s no beer like it.

        • Here is the first search result I get at that site for ” mms” (note the leading space, to get the search engine to pull up more relevant results):

          “8chan/8kun QResearch Posts (211)

          So I couldn’t find the mms, so I’m going to make my own.

          I got a blend of sodium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide. How much do I drink?”

          See my other post in response to Scott about Jordan Sather, who is definitely one of the bleach/koolaid drinkers.

          • Like I said, you have to wade through all the shills, stooges, bots, cranks and crazies (not least FREDDY, no relation…) on QResearch to find the real information on that forum. If you take the first post you see, well, that shows your level of effort.

            I’ve totally given up trying to follow the QResearch forum itself, it doesn’t load properly where I live and I can never get in to make comments. But I can assure you, they are very well versed on the Nxivm case. This was one post by Q:

            #1203
            2018-04-21 02:30:58 (UTC+1)
            mack is naming names. Big names in H-Wood / Gov’t (local/federal). Proof. The ‘Standard’ Hotel. Helicopter crash. All related. Future will prove past. …
            Q

            Nxivm is referenced over 9,000 times on the forum.

            For what it’s worth: just for once, I actually take a conspiracy source at face value. Given the “Q proofs”, including bona fide pictures taken on Air Force 1, it’s clear that whoever is behind this elaborate Q game appears to move closely with POTUS, and to have access to top-level military intelligence.

            I fully support any efforts to expose and take down the likes of the Clintons and Obama, I’ve always thought the latter was a snake of note.

            However, I do NOT think that Q is some kind of omniscient god, the way some Qanons appear to. The US military has its own agenda. Top of the list is the rapid deployment of 5G, which for me is a straightforward genocide platform on a scale we’ve never seen on this planet.

            If you want to understand the US military’s thinking, look at this official US Air Force document:
            https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Portals/10/AUPress/Papers/LP_0002_DeMaio_Electromagnetic_Defense_Task_Force.pdf

            This makes it clear that there’s a straight war between the US and China to roll out and achieve supremacy in 5G. All health considerations, all privacy and surveillance considerations, are to be ignored. And this is exactly what Trump is doing. He has put the worst industry shill I’ve ever seen in the US government, the truly disgusting Ajit Pai, as chairman of the FCC. This is draining the swamp?

            This is all relevant, because 5G is without doubt associated in some way with the coronavirus threat. Wuhan was the first campus test bed in China for 5G, as many have noted. The countries most hard hit share one trait in addition to physical location: China, South Korea and Japan have the most 5G saturation cover. Even that cruise ship in Yokohama had a very special 5G-like system, using satellites, on board.

            The researcher Dr Arthur Firstenberg MD linked outbreaks of lingering flu to the rollout of the initial cellphone networks:

            “Arthur Firstenberg, who founded the Cellular Phone Task Force, wrote that, on November 14, 1996, New York City’s first digital cellular provider activated thousands of PCS antennae newly erected on the rooftops of apartment buildings. Health authorities reported that a severe and lingering flu hit the city that same week. In response to its classified newspaper ad advising that radiation sickness is similar to flu, the Task Force heard back from hundreds of people who reported sudden onset symptoms synchronous to microwave startup—symptoms similar to stroke, heart attack and nervous breakdown.

            “Firstenberg gathered statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and analyzed weekly mortality statistics published for 122 U.S. cities. Each of dozens of cities recorded a 10-25 percent increase in mortality, lasting two to three months, beginning in the week during which that city’s first digital cell phone network began commercial service. Sites with no cellular system start up in the same time period showed no abnormal increases in mortality.”
            https://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/the-radiation-poisoning-of-america/

            I personally tracked two epidemics of lingering flu to rollouts of microwave networks, both of which killed many people.

            Former Pentagon wargamer Lt Col Tom Bearden warned decades ago that we would see increasingly harsh influenza epidemics as electromagnetic pollution increased, and that this would be weaponised:
            “Influenza, the common cold, etc. can become devastating killers if the exposed population has been electromagnetically ‘pre-conditioned’ for enhanced susceptibility.”
            http://www.cheniere.org/books/aids/ch5.htm

            Former microwave warfare specialist for the UK government, Mr Barrie Trower, has repeatedly warned that the most pervasive impact of microwave exposure is lowered immunity.

            Now, you can take a look for yourself: Q, the omniscient source, NEVER says a word about 5G. Not one. As far as I’m concerned, the whole QAnon phenomenon is a blind, to keep the troops distracted while the 5G kill grid for the military is rolled out. The generals will happily kill every single last one of you, before they relinquish their stealth weaponry — especially stealth weapons that surveil and target entire populations. It’s their greatest toy ever.

            So I’m not a blind follower of QResearch, but I keep an eye on it.

            And just you watch, wherever coronavirus breaks out unexpectedly — like Tenerife — take a look. There’s 5G in that spot.

            It’s not one-to-one, they have to be careful or it will become too obvious. But one other thing: coronavirus is very, very particularly killing older people. Japan, Korea and China do not have sustainable population profiles, not even close. They HAVE to kill off large numbers of older people, if they are to survive as nations. So does America, for what it’s worth, although it’s not quite so bad there.

            Nonetheless: given a ten-year latency period, the first real increases in deaths from the cellphone rolloout will have coincided exactly with the boomers beginning to retire. US life expectancy took a downturn under Obama, this is a fact. Go figure.

      • AnonyMaker,

        Shut-up!!!!

        I am hoping Scott and his white-supremacist buddies drink bleach. 😉

        You’ve ruined everything!!!

      • Fuck you scumbag. You are a liberal. All of you are stupid. You believe in gender pronouns, shut the fuck up. This tiny minority who just so happen to vote a certain way to not represent the majority. However, all of you liberals are ill. Feminism, faggotry, transgender, self loathing your own race, open borders, giving illegal criminal aliens billions of tax money, PC culture, cancel culture, censorship of anyone who does not go along with your shit, claiming ‘islam is peaceful’, murdering babies in the womb after the whore opened her legs and does not like responsibility and so much more degeneracy. You are inferior people. You should drink bleach and die.

    • I had the fortune of being in a bar when a rep for Budweiser came in promoting Bud Select, I think it was. It was supposed to be a quick afternoon drink but turned into a great night, free Bud. Google says it is low calorie but I recall it tasting good. I haven’t seen it around much lately

      • I hadn’t tried “Bud Select”.

        I like to branch out when it comes to beer and wine.

        Large or small brewery/winery expensive or cheap it doesn’t matter to me. Just the taste matters.

        I haven’t hopped onto the Hops band wagon.
        Good German, Irish, English, Scottish, Italian French, Belgian, and Swiss beers are not Hoppy.

        Hoppy beers are for hipsters. Beer was never hoppy until the last 20 years. It’s really Sam Adams fault.

        Indian pale ale is BS!!!!

    • I’ll leave the lagers to you, NG. If I’m gonna drink a beer, I’m looking for a dark ale. I’ll discriminate against Corona based on taste not on its name reminding us of a virus. And doesn’t alcohol kill germs? That calls for another glass…

      • A great dark beer Guinness!!!!!

        Hopps is BS!!!! BTW it’s a disinfectant from the Middle Ages that Sam Adams helped to promote the Hopps Movement. Under the purity

        Lastly the original Sam Adams brewery went Bankrupt

        In medieval England, ale was an alcoholic drink made from grain, water, and fermented with yeast. The difference between medieval ale and beer was that beer also used hops as an ingredient. Virtually everyone drank ale.
