biggest threat to our capital, our capitol police and our democracy. >> is the insidious sin city is motives stemming from the big lie. propagated by the former president and many of his republican allies. >> the white house says president joe biden will blame the former president for what happened a year ago and the threat he poses to the country. donald trump canceled his event for today in mar-a-lago but promise to supporters later this month reporting in washington. i'm basil, john. all right. thank you, basil. and again, a reminder we are waiting for the president to speak live to the nation here. >> on this one-year mark since the january 6 capitol riots. the live picture here from inside the capitol in the hall of columns. the podium set up and again, as soon as the president approaches the podium, we're not sure if the vice president will speak in advance of his remarks will have to wait and see. but we'll certainly bring the president's comments to you. >> life, you know brings to mind for a lot of people, very
traumatic memories. what happened last year for lawmakers and capitol employees and that includes house speaker nancy pelosi. and as you may remember, some of the rioters targeted her specifically and when they couldn't find her, they trashed her office. instead, she says there was damage done not only to the capitol, but to democracy itself, but she says it's important to remember that the attempted insurrection was not successful in the end. >> we won that crusie won that night. these people because of the courageous work of the capitol police and metropolitan police and others of they were deterred and their action to stop the peaceful transfer of power. it was a failure for them. it was a victory for democracy as we return to the capitol that night. 2, again, ratify the peaceful transfer of power. >> pelosi adds that she's
confident the capitol police have made improvements so that this won't happen like this again at the capitol. they were, you know, prepared. she says there's been a lot of changes, but she has also something that still has to be addressed. is the mindset that brought these thousands of people to the capitol to protest in the first place. >> we have to improve the attitude in the country. that violence is not a means to an end. that was long. that was wrong. but it is not just wrong that the congress is about violence against anyone in our country, some which all about the future. and the future is that america's resilience, america's greatness, america's. it's always prevail and that we will survive even. but we went through last year. >> here putting his feet up on a speaker. pelosi had asked that. 61 year-old richard
barnett. he's out of prison on bail right now. he spent 4 months in jail following the insurrection, a date for his trial still has not yet been set. >> and also happening today, we have several events that are being held across the bay area to mark one year since the attack will be a rally held in san mateo at 3 o'clock this afternoon. that event will be at 300 south el camino, real in front of bank of america. they'll also be a rally at 4.15 san francisco's civic center plaza events will also be held in castro valley at 4.30, and in napa at 5 o'clock tonight. >> and organizers say one of the biggest events is going happen in oakland at 05:30am, tonight. it will be downtown at the frank ogawa plaza, a candlelight vigil, mayor libby schaff is going to be speaking and then there's also going to rally at the corner of north main street and mount diablo boulevard. and that's in walnut creek. that gets underway. same time at 5.30. we are going to continue to cover what's going on today
around the bay with the capitol riots and remembering that as well as monitoring what's going on in washington, dc as we told you, we're waiting for the president to speak. and so we going have a live conversation with the east bay congressman eric swalwell talk about his thoughts and reflections on what happened. what we're facing now in 2021. and then at 9 o'clock, we're going to talk live with congressman barbara lee about her reflections on the capitol riots and the state of the nation as we move into 2022. >> ok, let's switch gears here at 6, 0, 8, another big story we're following is the very latest with coronavirus. we have some teachers in san francisco now staging a sickout to try and bring attention to covid safety. >> yeah. teachers say the district is in handling the covid surge well and they want more focus on safety protocols. kron 4 sarah stinson is live in san
francisco alive and kicking. i mean, we're all everybody's been through sickness, isn't it? a lot of people have affected by covid. so, sarah, let's talk about what these teachers want to be done. >> well, these teachers are fed up. i mean, on the kron does not, you know, discriminate against any industry in, of course, teachers are being affected. schools are being affected because so many people are getting sick. >> and so teachers said that the school district in san francisco did not prepare for what we knew was to come, which was this major surgery experience. we haven't even quite reached the peak. and they said that they wish there was more of an emergency plan with testing and mask being provided. and of course, mandates in place. but they are planning to do a sick out today. some teachers will call out sick in solidarity saying that they want to send a big message to the district. and this is on top of over 600 teachers who called out sick
yesterday. and those were teachers who are actually sick, whether they were experiencing symptoms are waiting for a test or exposed to covid. so we have already we know for a fact over 600 teachers were out yesterday. we'll have to see how many join this sickout today. it was tough to keep the schools running yesterday, calling in all those suv's. we'll see what happens today. teachers want the district to provide daily disposable canine kn 95 and n 95 masks for all staff. >> they want to make sure that testing is available to all staff and students as well. with free rapid testing to everyone. they also want to continue ation of a 10 day paid sick leave for staff due to covid or covid vaccination related illness. the union gathered at the district building yesterday and has support in their demands from the school board. president. >> it's up us. the does not require a negative test for adults or children to return to school buildings yet. and
does not have a vaccine mandate for poster mandate for adults. classrooms with students who don't have the necessary people and supplies. >> we needed in order to safely learn anyone who knows teaching know these are not environment conducive to learning. >> the superintendent has responded saying as they return from winter break, we encourage all to get tested. set up new testing site and sent out numerous ways to get tested prior to school. reopening this week. the superintendent says they just got a shipment of rapid tests from the state and those will be made available this week. and next. they also plan on giving out masks to these teachers and 2 students who need them. so it seems like they plan on getting sort of some of the demands met, but it doesn't seem like it was quick enough for these teachers. i think that's why they're very frustrated. so some teachers today will be calling out sick in addition to those who are >> actually sake and they're hoping that this sends a message, a loud message to the
district, to the city and even this state, they're extremely frustrated. they're being advised not to gather the district building today. they don't want one of the protests. they want more of that. just a sick out. we'll continue to cover this, but now send it back to you. >> i know these days, you know, i cough and i take a covid test. you hear someone cough in your family. you know, it's just an immediate thing. you just want to test test test. and i think that's what these teachers are expressing is they just want kind of a peace of mind. sarah. >> yeah, it looks like they just really want more availability to testing one teacher even put a quote out saying, you know, i had a cough and i wanted to stay home just to be safe. i don't want to put anyone else at risk. >> ok, thank you, sir. well, happening today and she's bay. they actually do have thousands of free covid tests going out, expected to be handed out to students in the dublin unified school district beginning pretty quick, which is great because as you know, they've been so hard to find these tests. students are encouraged to use the test.
>> before they return to classes next week because they don't want to carry and spread kron four's will tran live for us to dublin with more. >> on that story will good morning. >> good morning, james and 13,000 tests will be given out today and possibly even tomorrow if they still have some leftover highly doubt it because we've seen the scramble by people all over the bay area to get their hands on these tests. they actually come from the state to the dublin unified school district has promised they are encouraging, like duryea said for you to get tested. it is not require that you prove that your child is negative before returning to campus next week. but there are encouraging you to make sure peace of mind that your child is safe. 2 or 3 days out before the start of school next week or the day when they come back to school, do it that particular day. here are the locations. if you want to get your hands on these tests, keep in mind your child has to go to the dublin unified
school district. and you have to prove that through their student identification go with them or user id or if your high school student you can drive to say dublin high school that's located at 8, 1, 5, one village parkway fallon middle school is located at 3, 6, 0, one conan way. they will begin at 8.30, this morning and go all the way until 3, 3, 30 this afternoon, approximately at that time. get your hands on those tests. keep them around because like darya and james said, they are very hard to get this district. i like san francisco. there's been controversy that they're trying o pass it out in the middle of the week. they're doing this before the kids return to campus on monday. back to you. ok? we'll stay stand by for a traffic jams because we've those gems happened. a long lines of people want to get their hands on that. thank you. >> all right. 6.14 is the time. in order. to form a more perfect union establish justice. ensure domestic
tranquility. provide. the common 2 facts. are waiting for live from the president? you can see vice president kamala harris is speaking. >> in advance of him and we will again bring the president to you live with. take a quick to you live with. take a quick break. we'll be ri when a truck hit my son, to you live with. take a quick breai had so many questions about his case. i called the barnes firm. it was the best call i could've made. call the barnes firm now and find out what your case could be worth. ♪ call one eight hundred, eight million ♪
>> the muse of history. in her hands, an open book. and what she records the vents taking place in this chamber below. stood watch over this hall. one year ago today. as she has for more than 200 years. she recorded what took place. the real history. the real facts, the real truth. the facts and the truth. and vice president harris just shared. and you and i and the whole world saw with our own lives. the bible tells us that we shall know the truth. and the truth shall make us free. we shall know the truth. well, here is the god's truth. by january 6.20, 21. close your eyes. go back to that day. what do you see?
rioters rampage e? waiting for the first time inside this capitol. confederate flag that symbolizes the cause to destroy america. to rip us apart. even during the civil war that never ever happened. what happened here? in 2021? what else to see? breaking windows kicking in doors, breaching the capitol american flying on poles being used as weapons as spears. fire. stingers beings thrown at the hands of police officers. a crowd, the professions, their love for law enforcement assaulted. most police officers drag them, sprayed them, stomped on them. over 140 police officers injured. we all heard the police
officer there that day testified what happened? one officer called it quote. made. medieval battle. and he was more frayed that day that he was fighting the war in iraq. every pete earley has since that day. how dare anyone, anyone? to many, the littler did not the they were put through. we saw with our own riders menace the stalls. threatening the life of the speaker of the house. literally erecting galleries to hang the vice president of the united states of america. what do we not see? we didn't see a former president. we're just rallied the mob to attack. sitting in the private dining room off the oval office in the white house, watching it all on television. and doing nothing. for hours.
as police for assault. lives at risk. nation's capitol under siege. this was in a group of tourists. this is an armed insurrection. they were looking to uphold the will of the people. looking to deny the will of the people. they're looking up old. they want hold a free and fair election are looking to over. turn won. they were looking to save. because american. they're looking to subvert the constitution. this isn't about being bogged down in the past. it's about making sure the past is in barry. that's the only way forward. that's a great nations. do. you know bury the truth? they face up to it sounds like hyperbole, but the truth. they face up to
it. we are great nation. my fellow americans. life. there's truth. tragically, there are lives. lise conceived and spread for profit. and power. we must be absolutely clear about what is true and what is a lot. and here's the truth. the former president united states of america. has created and spread a web of lies. but the 2020 election. he's done so because he values power over principle. because he sees his own interest. there's more important in his country's interest in america's interest. and because his bruised ego. matters more to him than our democracy or our constitution. he can except he
lost. even though that's what 93 united states senators, his own attorney general, his own vice president. governors and state officials in every battleground state. have all said he lost. that's what 81 million of you did as you voted for a new way forward. he's president. in american history. the history of this country has ever ever done. he refused their except the results of election. and will the american people. well, some courageous men and women of the republican party are standing against it. trying to uphold the principle that party. many others are transforming not party to something else. i see no longer want to be the party. the party of lincoln, eisenhower, reagan, the bushes. whatever my other
disagreements are with republicans support the rule of law and not the rule of a single man, i will always seek to work together with them. to find shared solutions where possible. because we have a shared believe in democracy anything is possible. anything. so at this moment, we must decide. what kind of nation are we going to be? are we going to be a nation that except political violence as a norm? are we going to be a nation? allow partisan election officials to over turn. the legally expressed will of the people. are going to be a nation that lives not by vote. light of the truth. and the shadow of lives. we cannot allow ourselves to be that kind of nation. the way forward. mister, recognize the truth. the live by. the big
lie being told by the former president and many republicans who fear his wrath. is that the insurrection in this country actually took place on election day. november through 3rd. 2000, 20. think about that. so what you thought? now, what you thought when you voted that day? taking part in insurrection, is that what you thought you're doing? or did you think your can not your highest duty as a citizen and voting? former president's supporters are trying to rewrite history. they want you to see election day is the day of insurrection. the riot that took place here on january 6th as a true expression. the little people. do you think you were twisted way? look at this country to look at america. i cannot. here's the truth. election 2020. was the
greatest. demonstration democracy, the his to this country. more of you voted in that election. ever voted in all of american history. >> over 100 and 50 million americans went to the polls and voted that day. in a pandemic. some of grace really great risk to their lives. he should be plenty not attack. right now. in state after state. new laws are being written. not protect the vote. but to deny. not only to suppress the vote, but a verdict. not to strengthen and protect our democracy. because of former president lost. instead of looking at election results from 2020 and saying they need new ideas are better ideas to win more votes. the
former president supporters have decided the only way for them to win. is this a pressure vote and some vert our elections? it's wrong. it's undemocratic. and frankly, it's on american. second big lie. being told by the former president's supporters. that the results of the election twenty-twenty can't be trusted. the truth is that no election, no election in american history has been more closely scrutinized. one more carefully counted. every legal challenge question in the results. and every court in this country. that could have been made was made and was rejected. offer rejected by republican appointed judges. including judges appointed by the former president himself. from state
courts of the united states supreme court. recounts are undertaking his state after state. georgia, georgia, count its results of 3 times. with one recount by hand. funny partisan ot, ezra undertaken long after election in several states non change the results. and in some of the ideas, the margin of victory. actor grew slightly. so let's speak plainly about what happened in 2020. even before the first ballot was cast. the former president was preemptively sowing doubt about the election results. bill is live for months. wasn't based on the facts. he was just looking for an excuse pretext. to cover for the truth. she's not just a former president. he's a defeated former president.
defeated by a margin over 7 million of your votes. in a and free and fair election. there are simply 0 proof. election results are inaccurate. in fact, in every venue. revenue said to be produced. an oath to tell the truth, had to be taken. the former president failed to make his case. just think about this. the former president's supporters. have never been able explain. how they accept is accurate. the other election results that took place on november. 3rd. elections for governor. united states senate house of representatives. elections. state closed the gap in the house. they challenge none of that president's name was first. then we went down the line. governor, senators,
house representatives. somehow those results are accurate on the same ballot. but the presidential race is flawed. and on the same ballot. the same day. cast by the same voters. the only difference. former president didn't lose those races. he just the last the one that was his own. finally, the 3rd big lie being told by a former president's supporters since the mob who sought to impose their will through violence are the nation's to patriots. you saw. we looked through mom ransacking the capitol. destroying property. literally defecating in the hallways. rifling through the deaths of senators and representatives.
hunting down members of congress. patriots. not my view. to me. the true patriots for the more than 200, 50 americans to peacefully express their vote at the ballot box. election workers are protected the integrity of the vote. and the heroes defendant this capital. you can't love your country only when you win. you can obey the law. only when it's convenient. you can't be patriotic when you embrace and they've allies. thousands stormed the u.s. capitol. and those in instigating and inciting. and those who called on them to do so. held a dagger at the throat of america. and american democracy. and come here out of patriotism or principle. came here in rage. not in service of america. but rather
in service of one man. those inside the mob. the real plotters, we're desperate to deny certification of this election. the 5 will of voters. but the plot was foiled. congress and democrats. republicans stayed. senators representative staff. they finished their work. the constitution demanded. they honor their oath. to defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. work. folks. now it's up to all of us. we the people. to stand for the rule of law. preserve the flame of democracy. to keep the promise of america live. the promise is at risk. targeted by the
forces that value brute strength. over the sanctity of democracy. over hope. personal gain over public. good. make no mistake about we're living at an inflection point in history. that home and abroad. we're engaged in una struggle between democracy and autocracy. between aspirations of many. and the greed of the few. between the people's right of self-determination. and so so seeking autocrat. from china. russian be on. they're betting that democracies days are numbered. actually, to me, democracy is too slow. too bogged down by division to succeed in today's rapidly changing complicated world. and there, betty.
betting america will become more like them. like us. reading america is a place for the autocrat, the dictator, the strong man. i do not believe that that is not who we are. that is not who we have ever and that is not who we should never, ever be. >> our founding fathers. as imperfect as they were. set in motion, an experiment that changed the world literally changed the world. >> here in america. >> the people would rule. howard be transferred peacefully. never the tip of the spear of the of a gun. they committed. paper. an idea that could live up to they could move up to. but an idea. it could be constrained. yes, in america. all people are created equal. reject of you.
>> if you if you succeed. >> i fail. if you get a hand, i fall behind. if i heard you down. i somehow lift myself up. former president who lies about this election. and the mob that attacked u.s. capitol. could not be further away. from the core american values. you want to or they will ruin. rougned odor country fought for it like you did in concord, gettysburg and omaha beach, seneca falls. some alabama. and what we're fighting for. right to govern ourselves. right to determine our own destiny. with rights
come responsibilities responsibility see each other's neighbors. maybe we disagree that neighbor, but they're not an adversary. responsibility to accept defeat. then get back in the arena and try again the next time to make your case. responsibility to see that america is an idea. idea. requires vigilance, stewardship. as we stand here today. one year since 1/6/2000. 21. allies to show the anger in madness. we still on this place. they have not be. so we have to be firm. resolute and time you lean on our defense. the right to vote. that that vote counted. some have already made, you in sacrifice. and this secret effort. joe and i. more police
officers in the u.s. capitol rotunda not once but twice. wake of january 6 wants to honor officer brian sicknick. we lost his life today after the attack to the second time honor officer billy evans. lost his life defending the capitol as well. i think about the others who lost their lives or were injured and everyone living with the trauma of that day. those defending this capital. members of congress of both parties and their staffs. to reporters. cafeteria workers custodial workers and their families. don't kid yourself. the pain and scars from that day run deep. said it many times. and it's no more true or real. we think about the events of january 6. we are.
in a battle for the soul of america. a battle. by the grace of god. gracious, great to see this nation. we will. we had. i know how difficult democracy use. i'm crystal clear. a few threats. america faces. they're also now. are dark and stays. can lead to light and hope. from the death and destruction as vice president referenced in pearl harbor. can the triumph over the force and fashions? from the brutality blood he sunday. the edmund pettis bridge. people started voting. russia's mission. so now let's step up. write the next chapter in american history. re january, 6 marks not the end of democracy. beginning of
a renaissance liberty in fair play. i did not seek this fight. this cap one year ago today. but i will not shrink from it either. i will stand in this breach. i will defend this nation. not allow no one to place a dagger to throw to democracy. we will make sure the will of the people that but the ballot prevails, not violence. so the thought this nation will always. the peacefully transferred. i believe the power of the presidency and the purpose is to unite this nation. not divided. so let's just stop tear us apart. she bought us about us. not about me. deep in the heart of america. burns a flame that almost 250 years ago. of liberty, freedom and
equality. this is not a land of kings are dictators autocrats. we're a nation of laws of order, not peace, not violence. >> here in america, the people who through the ballot. and there will prevails. let's remember again, we're one nation. under god end of is. the today. tomorrow. and forever. and our best. we are you. 98 states of america. god bless you all. we've got protect our troops. my those who stand. watch over democracy. >> president biden there speaking live this morning, taking a firm stand against any opponents who would have
