Brownells Joins Tech Fight Against COVID-19

GRINNELL, Iowa-(Ammoland.com)- Brownells, an 80-year-old, Iowa-based online firearm, and firearm accessories supplier has joined forces with [email protected] to lend its excess computing power to help combat the COVID-19 virus sweeping across the globe.

[email protected] is helping with an international effort to understand the molecular structure of the virus in hopes of finding ways to defeat it. [email protected] has called on individuals and companies with excess server space and computing abilities to help execute computer modeling simulations to help speed up an otherwise huge and lengthy task.

“Our IT team learned about the [email protected] project and their work using computer modeling to better understand the molecular and protein structure of the virus,” said Brownells IT Director Curt Graff. “We are committed to helping protect our country by virtue of our personal protection and sustainability products, but we see this as a way to support the international community in a time of significant need.”

Brownells anticipates it will donate at least 1,300 hours to the project and run approximately 200 simulations on behalf of COVID-19 research. More information about [email protected] can be found at www.foldingathome.org.

Wow what started out as an interesting article triggered the conspiracy nuts to ripen.

I have been running 24/7 [email protected] and [email protected] for about ten years now, if not more, and have multi-millions worth of computing credits. Today of all days I receive a notice that SETI is shutting down that part of their program because of diminished returns. Seems ET is not going to be phoning home anytime soon. This now frees my computer up to run my other love, biology, with [email protected] This looks for ways to fight disease. What a Cosmic coincidence.

The vast majority of US citizens believe anything and everything the media and the government puts out without any thought process, much less reason or logic. This is what has happened with this Corona virus. The sheep are panic buying, just as they’d do if they lived on the coast and a hurricane warning was issued. Instead of always being prepared, as they should be, they wind up panic buying. Then, when it’s over, they cry and complain and expect the government to be their nanny and come to their rescue. This Corona virus scam is exactly what the liberal… Read more »

French and Australian Researchers Report Success Against Covid-19

“A renowned research professor in France has reported successful results from a new treatment for Covid-19, with early tests suggesting it can stop the virus from being contagious in just six days.
Chloroquine – which is normally used mainly to prevent and treat malaria – was administered via the named drug, Plaquenil.”

“A team of infectious disease experts at the University of Queensland in Brisbane say they have seen two existing medications manage to wipe out COVID-19 infections.”

There’s nothing to support that fevered paranoia. I’ve heard that conspiracy theory many times before, and it just hasn’t happened. It fails Occam’s Razor. Starting with the fact that it falsely presumes everyone will have a firearm with which to trade for food. Only 120 million of the 330+ million people in this country own a firearm, and we know many liberals own NONE. So what, these people just starve??

Aint. Gonna. Happen.

Funny, I already see places banning gun sales…… I expect that suspension of the concealed carry laws will be next.

@SG – What fraction of LTC holders do you think would comply? I don’t always carry, but under those conditions I certainly would. Probably upgrade carry arm from micro 9mm by bringing along the AR when I walk the dog. Have to say I expect an AR would buy me “social distancing” as I live inside a liberal zone within Texas. OTOH – might bring people flocking with questions since they’ve never owned a gun & want to learn how. It’s always been easy with at least six retailers within two miles of my home and more home-FFL’s doing cheap… Read more »

How the globalist elites plan to cull the world population:
– Introduce a virus that is highly infectious, but ultimately won’t kill too many people, just a bit worse than your average flu.
– Hype the pandemic, maximize fear, & impose medical martial law: confine everyone to their homes.
– Conduct door to door mandatory vaccinations during martial law, except the cure’s more deadly than the disease! Bill Gates explains:

You lost me when you said Mike Adams. He’s as big a nutter as Dave Hodges. Honestly they make Alex Jones look positively mainstream. Their fevered paranoid predictions NEVER happen as they claim, and their content is pure clickbait for the tinfoil hat brigade.

People need to stick to PROVEN information, like the video of Bill Gates that I posted. It’s gotta be documentary in order for it to be credible. Anything less discredits the independent reporting on actual globalist shenanigans that’s been going on for over 50 years. Things like the Bilderberg meetings and the stuff they discuss there.

NOBODY is as big a nutter as Dave Hodges! If looking for trend forecasters that get it dead on most of the time its Mike Maloney, Gerald Celente, Egon von Greyerz , etc.

Sooooo… you’re saying that doctors are currently forcing people at gunpoint to have their kids vaccinated against their will or be kidnapped to CPS, right?? If this was somewhere in the news cycle I presume you have a link to this story. I wouldn’t mind reading that myself.

USA, I asked because I do remember one incident – but without at least some sort, even a single data point other than location, I cannot know that what you’re referring to is the same incident. Truth is, MANY states have draconian health laws that permit forced vaccinations, and MANY states have draconian child services laws that gives far too much power to family service agencies to violate parental rights even when parents have done nothing wrong. That being said, the case I recall involved a dispute about the child’s temperature and just how sick the child was – or… Read more »

@Knute Knute – Well this story is not the one I thought of. Thanks for the link! Well, the first problem were the busybody statist family members. The next mistake was calling government employees to their home (even paramedics are trained to call in the jackboots when people try to exercise health freedoms). “My body my choice”? not to the government unless you want to murder your baby. Criminal Persecution Services agents always show up with the police because what they do is patently criminal, tyrannical and their primary function is to kidnap kids and babies from free-thinking, free-living Americans.… Read more »

I am certain this is why abortion is legal as well. See agenda 21 at the united nations.
