The Epoch Times reported that Grupo Model, which makes and exports Corona beer, will be suspending its operations after the Mexican government declared that their breweries were non-essential.
The company updated its followers in a news release on Twitter earlier this week and said it will be 100 percent committed to containing the spread of the Wuhan Virus.
“Grupo Modelo announces that this Sunday it will complete the process of suspending its production and marketing operations for beer,” Grupo Modelo wrote in its press release, according to a translation. The company said it came to an agreement with the Mexican government to take “extraordinary actions to attend to the health emergency generated.”
“In the event that the federal government considers it opportune to issue a guarantee confirming beer as an [essential] agro-industrial product, at Grupo Modelo we are ready to execute a plan with more than 75 percent of our staff working from home and at the same time guaranteeing the supply of beer,” the statement added.
The Mexican government declared a health emergency and ordered the closure of all nonessential businesses. The number of Wuhan Virus cases reached 1,500 as of Friday, April 3, 2020. Fifty deaths have been reported so far.
Food production and agriculture in Mexico are deemed essential activities.
Brewing titan Anheuser Busch InBev is Grupo Modelo’s parent company.
Since the outbreak of the Wuhan Virus , Corona beer has been the center of ridicule on the Internet. Some speculated that the company’s beer sales plummeted by a considerable amount since the beginning of the outbreak.
However, the company dispelled these rumors and said sales have remained strong during the pandemic.
All eyes will be on Mexico in the next few months.
A prolonged global economic crisis could potentially send Mexico’s dysfunction up north to the U.S. That means armed cartels and other corrosive elements of Mexican society could be overflowing our borders if the U.S. government doesn’t get its act together.
In such a time of economic and political uncertainty, the U.S. should be serious about closing its border.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
