The Plain Truth is that President Obama was not the person behind the lockdown and COVID mess... It goes back to George W Bush! In fact, the seeds to all this deep state globalism goes back to his father King George Bush the First! The original "New World Order" president was laying the seeds to destroy Ronald Reagan's legacy, even as Vice President. Don't be fooled about Faux (Fox) News lies and coverups! President Obama was a stool of the Deep State! Nothing but a drug using, peddling pimp for the powers in DC. If he truly was what his minions believe, Obama would have been an enemy of Washington, like Trump, and not its darling. Think about that!
Why was the entire country not locked down during major pandemics of 1968/69, 1957, 1949-1952 or even the Spanish Flu of 1918?
That's a question many are asking some two months into the unprecedented mass quarantine of the healthy in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Whatever the answer, wrote Jeffrey A. Tucker, editorial director for the American Institute for Economic Research, it must be "a bizarre tale."
"How," he asked, "did a temporary plan to preserve hospital capacity turn into two-to-three months of near-universal house arrest that ended up causing worker furloughs at 256 hospitals, a stoppage of international travel, a 40% job loss among people earning less than $40K per year, devastation of every economic sector, mass confusion and demoralization, a complete ignoring of all fundamental rights and liberties, not to mention the mass confiscation of private property with forced closures of millions of businesses?"
Tucker, citing in part a New York Times story published last month, traced the theory behind the lockdown to 2006. And, indeed, it is a bizarre tale.
"So far as anyone can tell, the intellectual machinery that made this mess was invented 14 years ago, and not by epidemiologists but by computer-simulation modelers," he wrote. "It was adopted not by experienced doctors – they warned ferociously against it – but by politicians."
The phrase social distancing turned up for the first time in a Feb. 12, 2006, New York Times story at the time of the avian flu outbreak. Tucker recalled that the extreme warnings of its lethality didn't pan out.
But the outbreak did prompt President George W. Bush to study up on the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic and commission experts to come up with a plan for the next big one, the New York Times reported last month.
Two federal government doctors, Richard Hatchett and Carter Mecher, proposed requiring Americans to stay home from work and school the next time the country was hit by a deadly pandemic.
Their plan was met with skepticism and some ridicule by senior officials accustomed to relying on the pharmaceutical industry rather than a Middle Ages-style approach of self-isolation.
Nevertheless, the Times said, how that plan "became the heart of the national playbook for responding to a pandemic is one of the untold stories of the coronavirus crisis."
Mecher, a Department of Veterans Affairs physician, and Hatchett, an oncologist turned White House adviser, had to overcome intense initial opposition, the Times said.
Their work was combined with that of a Defense Department team assigned to a similar task.
