Obamacare architect calls for 18-month complete national lockdown: ‘The truth is, we have no choice’

Dr. Zeke Emanuel — the architect of the disastrous Obamacare legislation — essentially called for an 18-month national lockdown to stem the coronavirus outbreak.

Ezekiel Emanuel was the former health-policy adviser under Barack Obama. He’s also the brother of former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, who was Obama’s White House chief of staff.

Zeke Emanuel has been spent his entire medical career in academia or government, so it’s safe to say he doesn’t have to worry about missing a paycheck during a nationwide shutdown.

Like fellow government bureaucrat Dr. Anthony Fauci, Emanuel offered a bleak picture of America’s future.

“Realistically, COVID-19 will be here for the next 18 months or more,” Emanuel told MSNBC. “We will not be able to return to normalcy until we find a vaccine or effective medications. The truth is, we have no choice.”

Emanuel continued: “If we prematurely end the physical distancing and the other measures, deaths could skyrocket into the hundreds of thousands, if not a million. We cannot return to normal until there’s a vaccine. Conferences, concerts, sporting events, religious services, dinner in a restaurant — none of that will resume until we find a vaccine, a treatment, or a cure.”

Keep in mind that the academic models that Dr. Fauci and other “experts” relied on to make their alarming projections have been wildly-exaggerated or flat-out wrong.

The academic models all grossly overstated COVID-19 infection rates and hospitalizations by a huge margin. Social distancing and other mitigation efforts were already factored into these projections.

Meanwhile, Zeke Emanuel suggested an 18-month national lockdown to curb the coronavirus crisis.

“We need to prepare ourselves for this to last 18 months or so and for the toll that it will take,” Emanuel said. “The crisis is not going to go away in a few weeks or after the 30-day plan comes to an end.”



Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the academic models that the experts are relying on have been grossly flawed.

“For example — today which is April 7th — they predicted that New York will need 25,000 hospital beds. As of this morning, it was just under 17,500.

The model also predicted that as of today, almost 6,600 people would be in intensive care. And the actual numbers are just under 4,600.

In Florida, it predicted 4,000 people would be hospitalized. The reality is that not even 2,000 are.

And it it wasn’t just Florida and New York. They got it wrong in state after state after state.”

Carlson said while this is great news, it also should make you skeptical of the statistics being bandied about.

“For many years, the CDC has tracked the total number of Americans who die every week from pneumonia. That number has come in far lower than at the same moment in previous years,” Tucker remarked. “How could that be?”

“It is entirely possible that doctors are classifying conventional pneumonia deaths as COVID-19 deaths, which means it’s being credited for thousands of deaths that would have occurred if the virus never appeared here. We don’t know that for certain, but it is certainly worth considering.”

Tucker added: “No one knows exactly why the model predicted so many more hospitalizations than we have actually had. You will hear people say that this is evidence that the shutdowns and social distancing must be working. But they were built into the model and were already taken into account. So we are still doing far better than what epidemiology experts believe is a best-case scenario.”

Carlson recounted: “On March 24th, Governor Cuomo of New York descended into a state of frenzy. He said tens of thousands of innocent New Yorkers were going to die.”

Last Friday (April 3), Andrew Cuomo breathlessly panted on live TV that New York did not have enough ventilators and needed thousands more. Three days later on April 5, Cuomo admitted that New York had enough ventilators.

“It was effective theater but it was awful,” Carlson said. “As recently as last Friday, April 3rd, Governor Cuomo threatened to use the National Guard to seize ventilators from facilities upstate. That’s how badly New York needed them, he said! Except he didn’t need them. As it turned out, New York has many more beds and ventilators than it needs.”
