Coming into 2020 I and many people I know had just battled what we thought was the seasonal flu. Coughing, breathing issues, etc. caused many sick days and a lot of discomfort.
The economy was rocking and things were looking up for most Americans as the unemployment rate, for all demographics, were at record lows, the stock market at record highs, and manufacturing was coming back to the USA.
By late January into February, there was conflicting reporting coming out concerning a virus affecting China. President Trump stopped all travel from China which created an uproar from the left, assigning xenophobia & racism as it stopped the flow of Chinese citizens into our country.
In late February / March, Speaker Pelosi invited everyone to come to Chinatown to celebrate, nothing to worry about. At a March 5th press conference, NY Mayor Bill de Blasio said healthy people should still be dining out, “If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life,”
At this point, President Trump brought in “experts” to evaluate and give advice on how to handle the possible outbreak. Here Dr. Fauci, on April 13th, admitted that he and Dr. Birx persuaded President Trump to lock down the US economy knowing the massive destruction this would cause in jobs, lives, and commerce.
With the increasing cases in Europe, U.S. President Donald Trump imposed a 30-day travel ban starting Friday, March 13th, from much of Europe in a bid to prevent further spread of the new virus.
At the request of the “experts”, President Trump, on March 16th, issued ‘Coronavirus Guidelines’ for the next 15 days to slow pandemic.
Many states went into shut down mode, crushing the economy starting a snowball of stress, panic buying, job loss, stress-related health issues, etc. Unemployment numbers skyrocketed ending up over 34 million at its peak.
Now that the curve has flattened in the country, the US is in the process of re-opening and the data is coming in. Does the data verify that closing the US, the first time in our country’s history, was justified? Only with further analysis will we know.
From Gateway Pundit
Coronavirus Is 4th Worst Flu Pandemic in US History — But First Flu to Destroy the Economy Thanks to Faulty Models, Junk Science and Dr. Fauci
** Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx used the Imperial College Model to persuade President Trump to lock down the ENTIRE US ECONOMY.
** The fraudulent model predicted 2.2 million American deaths from the coronavirus pandemic
** The authors of the Imperial College Model shared their findings with the White House Coronavirus task force in early March
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx then met with President Trump privately and urged him to shut down the US economy and destroy the record Trump economy based on this model
** A new critique of the Imperial College Model finds the study is “completely unusable for scientific purposes” — The Imperial College study is a complete sham
** Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a garbage model on the White House and the American public and destroyed the US economy
“Today we compared the worst flu pandemics in US history.”
The Coronavirus with an overall mortality rate per population of 0.0357% is the fourth-worst flu in US history.
As we move forward there are questions that need to be answered and lessons to be learned from allowing non-elected officials to close our nation down.
Why did we close the entire nation, how many lives were lost from studies, and from not seeking medical care for fear of leaving their homes, how many small businesses closed and wealth lost, etc.?
May America never let this happen again, We The People must say NO!
