todd. >> todd: scientists speaking out about being silenced when they raise concerned that covid-19 could have come from wuhan, china. >> from every direction, from people we now know were actually thinking exactly the same thing, but chosen to say the opposite, which is extraordinary and taken two years for that to finally come out and be exposed. >> todd: the group of experts telling fox new its is part of top-down effort aimed at protecting scientific community. how pervasive were attemptss to silence those who raised concerns aboutlet lab leak theer sne >> you could tell by the e-mails set up by foya, dr. fauci and
dr. collins of the niech were working together, as soon as they received reports there might have been a leak, top scientists like jeremy farrar to organize cover of that fact in february of 2020. it is amazing to me, they should have been focused on the pandemic, they were working to suppress evidence that there may have been a lab leak. they got e-mails from top scientists telling them this doesn't look like it was product of evolution, it was product of some lab process, 70%, 80%, 60% likelihood, they got the reports. instead of reporting that, they organized a meeting and said it was conspiracy to say it was a lab leak. >> todd: science is supposed to be robust exchange of ideas to
arrive at some truth or something people can take forward to better their lives. why did dr. fauci and dr. collins marginalize those who spoke out as fringe. instead of saying we participated in gain of function, we're sorry, we won't do it again? >> for the lab leak, if it were to get out it might be a lab electoral college n.i.h. might have funded it, it would ruin science. this is the way they operate, that is frances collins and tony fauci, they see inconvenient fact where other scientists may disagree with them, they organize and attempt to suppress and marginalize the rg scientists. they did this with me with the lockdown. i spoke up against lockdowns and frasence collins wrote an e-mail
to fauci calling me a fringe scientist and calling for takedown. it seems like a pat other than, they marginalize other scientists to create illusion of consensus that doesn't exist in the scientific community. they want to look like they are in charge of a scientist consensus, but in order to do that, they need to involve scientist necessary discussion and debate. their modus oreandius, is to deplatform people. they did this with the lockdowns, with the lab leak and early treatment, as well. it is shocking behavior from the top scientists in the country. >> todd: you heard ashley deliver the story that the studies show lockdowns were abject disaster, more harm than good, you pointed that out. dr. collins said that was not
correct, do you expect an ark apology from dr. collins and the scientific elite? >> i would just be happy if we never adomented them again. it was clear that lockdowns, if they were going to protect someone it was certain class of us. i was in the class that could ford to lockdown, most were not, they were called essential workers. lockdowns were never going to protect the most vulnerable people. >> todd: it is easier to make proclamations when you live in an ivory tower. we appreciate your comments, thank you, sir. ashley. >> ashley: did you see this? an armed criminal picked the wrong gas station to rob. the brave owner stood his ground and sent that suspect running and maxine waters is using

my brave freedom-loving patriot daughters and many kids around this state are excited to receive suspension from this woke school system. loudoun public school system suspended national honor society students and community volunteer and student leaders, when they themselves are defying the governor's order. we feel it is about control and grooming and they are excited to get suspension if it means setting students free across the state. >> todd: you look about my age, i can't imagine like this when we were growing up, why do the districts seem more interested in fighting over masks than -- wait for it, teaching your kids? >> yeah, what is sad, i woke up this morning and realize this school year, first day of schools, my daughters were asked in class, what is your -- it has been that kind of school year and we've gotten away from true

nuance in to suspend them on a mask amendate and are calling it dress code violation. with regard to what clint said, i appreciate that. my sons, everyday they go in, i pick them up and they get suspended after i get the phone call. each day i ask them, do you want to do this, i don't tell them you have to do that. i say, it is a weird time, it might be uncomfortable for you. i have a sign hang nothing my house that says when tyranny becomes law, rebellion fwks duty. my son said, it is time to be rebels. i appreciate the civic education they are getting right now. >> todd: i appreciate the word you used, choice, it has been ignored. we would love to have you back once we get the

country? do you think firefighters will now become a target? >> this is something we've been dealing with for a while. stockton is a violent city. our system is being taxed right now, just due to the amount of calls going on. we cover approximately 360,000 people and we are the busiest station fire department in the nation. unfortunately, we respond to calls that put us in danger. >> ashley: has this ever happened at your department that you can think of, whether the time you have been this or before? >> we've had numerous calls where we've heard shots fired, had fire stations shot at. unfortunately this is not new. it is definitely the first time that we've had any tragic accidents due to any type of gunfire to our department. >> ashley: do you think this
fire department or perhaps fire departments across the country will alter the way they do things now that this has happened, just hearing about it makes you think they need to step up safety protocol for firefighters. you do an incredibly dangerous job and we thank every one of you for it. something has to change to protect firefighters in a different way now. >> our department has issued body armor for certain calls, active shooter or a call or incident where we think it warns that equipment. putting out a fire, we have 3400 fires per year, it is impossible to put body armor on for the calls. we'll definitely after this is sxdz done, look at policies and how we handle some of the calls, but unfortunately this is
something i don't think equipment would have made a difference. >> ashley: i already touched on this, i want to hammer home this direct question. i talked to you about the er nurses concerned with their safety working in the emergency room. now this happened in california, do you think first responders across the grid are under attack? >> i think unfortunately, our society is, there is uncertainty on what is going on out there. i know in stockton, dealing with huge homeless increase in our population increase in our city. which is we're dealing with that in ways that we've never had to deal with it before. many homeless are armed, so there is a lot of unknowns, we're responding to the calls. >> ashley: okay, mario, thank you for being with us and i'm
