"They don't have a chance. Now, let me tell you how this works so you can understand. September 14th. There's going to be two questions on the ballot. Two questions. Question number one. If they want to recall. Gavin Newsom. Ask questions. And what do you support the recall? A. Gavin Newsom? Yes or no? And then if you answer yes. The candidate with the most votes in question to where you have all the candidates. Will become the next governor of the US Excuse me of California. So it's a two part question. One. Do you favor the recall A. Gavin Newsom? Two. Who Do you want to replace him? Now? The catch is this If 50% of the voters say yes. Question number two becomes very important. If less than, 50% says. Yes, less than 50%. Game over Gavin Newsom stays in office. I want to repeat that. The question number one. If you want to recall Gavin Newsom You must say yes. Or no. Question number two becomes totally irrelevant. If less than 50% says yes to the recall. And I'm taking Happy meal bets from McDonald's right now right now. And I get myself one chance to change my mind in about six weeks. Right now, if the election was held today. I'm just going to be honest with you again. I'm never going to lie to you on this program. If the election was held today, Gavin Newsome wins, There'll be no recall. Too much money. Too much power. Too much money and we candidates. I think if the election was held today Gavin Newsom would not be recall Why Leo You got too much money. The unions are powerful. And more importantly, the candidates are weak. I'll give you example of how Gavin Newsom would lose hands down. If Donald Trump was running for governor, he loses. I'm telling the truth. Donald Trump live in California and Donald Trump ran for governor, Gavin Newsom would lose hands down easily, not even close. There's a lot of secret Democrats who would vote for Donald Trump. You think I'm joking? Uh, Donald Trump would defeat Gavin Newsom easily. Easily. Not even close. But these current Republican candidate Not a chance. I'm not. I'm not voting for one of those three. Not even I'm just I want to stay honest with you. I am a trump Republican. I believe in a man who accomplished things like securing the border. Who believes in school choice. Who believes in energy independence. Who believe in giving people a second chance. But the first step act I believe in that guy. These other all these other Republican candidates. You know what they're saying? Vote for me because Gavin Newsom is bad. I don't hear any policies. I guarantee you If Donald Trump was running for governor, there'll be no homelessness industry in the streets be none. I guarantee you he would be able to bust up the teachers union. Because he believes in straight talk, he believes in honest talk. And I'll tell you right now. The greatest advantage Gavin Newsom has is that Donald Trump does not live in California. That is his greatest advantage. I'll tell you right now. It's horrible here. We don't have any qualified candidate. There is one But he's not running There's one great candidate. And let me tell you right now. It's not too late to run. I think you have until July 17th. You have to pay a $5000 fee. Did get like 60 or 70 signatures. Very It's very easy to run. So all those candidates who are talking about ready they have to pay a fee. I think it's $5000 correct me if I'm wrong and then, uh, come up with, you know a small number of signatures, and I think that's the key. So you know, we we have a chance to get a good candidate to run. But right now it's weak. And I'll tell you right now. The the Gavin Newsom administration is destroying California. And the Joe Biden administration. Is continues to do everything. It can to decimate the economy and render the American dollar worthless. And an op ed piece on Fox News, Kansas State representative Ron Estes warned that the Joe Biden economic crisis will get worse and it's wasteful Spinny will crush our recovery. So right now. I really want.

"You can possibly do it now. Keep in mind. We've been intellectually honest. This morning during my program and every comment that we've made here on Todd's program, we've been intellectually honest. We're not discounting that something took place yesterday. That was extraordinary. It was significant. It will be attached. To the Trump legacy. There's no question about it. But at the same time Country was on fire. Officers would have acid and urine and frozen water bottles and rocks and anything thrown at them. Property was destroyed People's rights violated Destroying incredible major. Once beautiful cities, making them unlivable. In the same screamers right now. Had nothing to say about it. Nothing. People are releasing statements that have said nothing about Everything else. Remember? It was the summer of love. When when stuff was on fire, they wrote headlines and random that said. Fiery But mostly peaceful. I'm not making this up. This is what took place. So you would think after what happened yesterday that find financial markets in America would be rattled. That there would be all kinds of whether they be anecdotal or or imperial things. Evidence happening, don't things that would be with without question being able to be easily discerned. Instead, the Dow surpassed 31,000 for the first time. A little while ago the S and P. 500, the NASDAQ both up incredibly sharply, and America even on a bad day, even on our worst day. He's still the greatest nation in the history of the world. It's pretty amazing when you think about that. There were three things that from the moment this election ended, there were three things that I knew. Number one actually four because number one. I knew that, regardless of pursuing every path that was available That Joe Biden would be sworn in on January 20th. I got people mad at me for saying that it wasn't giving up. Nobody supported President Trump in America more than I did. I would I would Put what I've done in terms of faithful support up with anyone. Ah! No question about that. But you have to also be realistic. And when you see the way that things are going And every door is shut in your face. There are times where you know something happened, but you just can't prove it. And I thought that was going to be the case here. The pandemic was used to alter the election process illegally. That it doesn't seem to be impressive or persuadable to any finder of fact, But there's no question Pennsylvania And all kinds of places. Around this great country changed what they did. And I give the Democrats credit. It's it's dirty credit, but they were very busy before the election, changing all these rules, all of them to their favor and they worked. It. Like a maestro, especially In five key battleground states. I could stretch that even but especially In five key battleground states were rules were changed. Can you Can you explain how they're used to be 6% about rejection, and now it's something like point. 1.3 Because they stopped being strict on signature verification. They didn't care. Someone didn't live in the state. If it was a vote, they counted it. They knew exactly what they were doing. But go, go try to prove I'll try to prove that, your honor, I know they cheated. I can't give you anything to prove that they did. But believe me, we know they cheated. So, look, I know That President Trump got ripped off, but I also knew it wasn't going to be able to be proven. So there were three things that I knew. Number one and this is months ago. I said this President Trump will never concede. He said something today that was, I think very helpful, and I'll share it with you in a moment. But he will never utter the words I lost. I concede anything like that. This is where knowing him for 30 Three years or however long it's been Plays in my favor, because I know how he thinks. I know how he works. I also said he will not invite Joe Biden to the White House. That hasn't happened yet, And I don't think it will happen, Although the president is always capable Recalibration and maybe After today's statement. Maybe that could be subject to change, But I don't know. And because of the incident, maybe in a unity act, the president is capable of rising. To that occasion, but I don't believe he had any intentions of fighting, inviting Joe Biden to the White House while he was the president. Meaning President Trump and number three that President Trump may not I used to say he will not may not. Attend the Biden inaugural and the Biden inaugural. I know President Bush is coming in. It's gonna be virtual. Somehow, I guess in keeping with the basement campaign that he ran. I thought it was rather interesting that Biden didn't even campaign for himself, but he campaigned. In, uh, Georgia. For war noch and for us off and Oh, by the way, don't forget mark the tape, he said. Vote for these two, but he said it by name you vote for war Knock you vote for Uh, us off and you will get a $2000 check the next day. Don't forget, Joe Biden said that Let's see how long tomorrow takes I do think, though, With the Democrats having control of all three houses, they have the House of Representatives. They have the Senate and they'll have the presidency. I think you very well may see. Another $2000 stimulus check, and I believe the American people do need Stimulus. They call it Coveted relief. I think that clearly that is something that the American people need. When we come back from break, we're going to be joined by a distinguished member. The House of Representatives who I am confident. Will have profound things to say about what occurred yesterday because when you think about everything That went on. There's a lot to unpack. When we come back. Congressman Ron Estes of Kansas.

Fracking is fracking about to expand in Oklahoma and Kansas. Well, I think right now. That's one of the reasons why this election so important is that it's still bite his cost about and you know fracking. But now that it's election year, saying, Oh, no, We only do it on federal lands because he's tryingto pander to get votes from his thing in Ohio, but you know, we have to leave before him. That's presented by I am. Alexander is completely banned fracking. He signed it, and it would be the law of the land. So that's what's important. On Alexis standpoint, Kendra Orange bus on that last fall, she voted Support and make sure that the president's future presidents could not stand cracking. But this year when it's when it came time, she joined older Democrat colleagues and voted to ban it.

On his way here to Oklahoma City to be honored by the Ah drilling organization here in Oklahoma City, and he's going to tell us all about why he thinks Stephanie vice is the choice for fifth Congressional District. And that's coming up to our news. Radio 1000 Katie. Okay, eight for 1000. Lei Matthews. Katie okay dot com to join in the conversation. Sean is in Bethany. Thank you for hanging on. Young and Nero. But the whole thing of all of my opinion, this whole thing of all this unrest farmer comes down to two men that were breaking the wall. Yeah. Most resisting arrest. And you know one top In Minnesota. I deserved you Don't do that. George point was resisting arrest. You deserve what you did. Yeah. Now. I don't think either one of them deserved death. I think they deserved to be arrested. But if I were a policeman, I would have done the same thing. When I saw him reach into that car. I have no idea what he's going to bring out. Right, so I totally agree. I would have And I was a Former college wrestler put it towards Florida and Joeckel in Oregon. Y our societies. That's become your mate Firearms. Well, I I agree, Shawn. And and to me, the other. The other aspect of this whole thing is that a lot of these riots aren't about black lives matter or antifa. Or about what the police did to this they are that is the excuse. For these riots, which are very well funded, very well financed. To try to create as much chaos and havoc as possible. I'm not just echoing what Rush Limbaugh has been saying. I've been saying this all along. I've been saying this ever since it became apparent during the impeachment. Debacle. That it was all made up and that it wasn't going to stick. I said then, and I will underscore now. They can't find anything to get Trump on. They are frustrated that nothing is sticking their frustrated that there's this faction of the United States that likes Trump and that the United States is a center right nation when they the Democrats are being dragged in a further and further left direction. And so they're trying everything they can and it is it is to me dangerously close to a coup data. Where an unelected group of people are trying to take over a government or undo a duly elected person, and I do believe that this all began Not only to create Chaos going into this election, but beyond this election Because when the president gets reelected, and I'm I'm that confident He will It's going to continue. Probably even get worse. I do see that we might have an above normal snowfall this winter. And maybe that will calm things down. Oh, news radio 1000. Katie. Okay, It's Leigh Matthews eight for 1000.

Stripper Wells, by the way, are any oil or natural gas property? Who's maximum daily average output does not exceed 15 barrels a day, and that includes most of the wells that we have here in Oklahoma. And in Kansas. So welcome, Congressman. I'm glad to have you here. Let's start with the oil industry and stripper Wells here in Oklahoma and Kansas. The recent price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia hasn't adversely affected our industry here in our states. So it really did. I mean, we've seen several years of declining all prices and then Russia and Saudi Arabia. Literally, in some cases, decided to play war on American old industry earlier this year in terms of trying to make sure that they ran the prices down really hurt American production because of Of the cost of corruption in some cases here in United States more expensive just because of the volume that get out, and so they literally were declaring war on us and then And in the Kobe and defecate and demands Trump so much worldwide, said You Look at with people not traveling with people not flying, not driving. We're not going out no economic activity, and that impact that said on the prices had such a huge impact on us. And so I'm glad we were able to get, you know, get the Soviet Union and then Saudi Arabia or Russia and Saudi Arabia worked together again, Uh, at least get production. Uh, prices back up, so they they weren't flooding the market with really cheap. All present has dissipated consequences of being shut These businesses they are Because when you shut it will down you're probably not gonna start it back up. You know, it's one of these Triple wells. Sometimes they're called marginal will. Sometimes those terms are used interchangeably, but They're not exactly state the marginal well, really. Uh, the cost really do drive where the second stay over or not, and the price of oil, Whereas trip will. The definition is just based on a lot of volume that Congressman Ron Estes of fourth Kansas, which is the Wichita surrounding area in town, to receive the legislator of the Year Award from the National Stripper, Well Association, Expo and Gala Tonight.

"Maybe if I'd had someone like her to look up to as a young eighteen year old woman. I may have stayed in Kansas, Brian. I also wanted to ask you about Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas. He announced that he will not run for re election next year. What's our sense of how that might go? I mean secretary of state Mike Pompeo has been kind of floated some say that he has a good chance of winning. If he were to run, but he says he has no intention of running right now. What does that look like it's going to be crowded field? Obviously there has been a very public effort to recruit Pompeo. And if if he does change his mind, I would expect most Republicans to get out of the way. But if he doesn't it's going to be a very crowded field Senate present Susan Wagle who was mentioned by governor Kelley in your show. She's exploring a run the state treasures are running. I joked with congressman Ron ESTES yesterday that he was the only Republican in Kansas who didn't seem to want to run for the seat. And he assured me that well he didn't want to run he could have if he wanted to. So you should expect a very crowded Republican field. I wouldn't expect Democrats to take the race seriously unless you have someone like a Chris co Bach who is a divisive figure emerges Republican front runner. Democrats are kind of watching this race with a little bit of interest. If there is a device. Of candidate who seems to be gaining steam with the Republicans. You could see them actually make an effort to make this a competitive race. There's a it's been be an uphill battle. Because a democrat hasn't won a Senate seat in Kansas since nineteen thirty two, and we should be clear, by the way, Mike Pompeo used to be a congressman representing district in Kansas for three terms. Michael emailed, the expansion of Medicare is contentious because federal government funding of the programme phases out and the Bill for services becomes the responsibility of the state. I wonder how you see the governor's argument in Kansas as compared to some of the other arguments about why Medicaid expansion is still worth doing. So I think what the governor is is looking at is. You know, she's she's trying to make this into an economic argument. If you saw that she and that's been a the kind of consistent democratic refrain, which is this is federal money that can be coming into Kansas that we're passing up every year. And so I think it's you know, she is trying to make this as a kind of this as an argument that makes fiscal sense for the state. I think anticipating criticism like that. Liz tweeted as a lifelong Oklahoman, it's refreshing to hear how our neighbors are addressing Medicaid expansion and education hope Oklahoma can learn what bipartisan means with regards to the presidential election cycle before. I let you go. There are more than a dozen Democrats in the race. There could be two dozen by the time the show is over the big keeps getting bigger and bigger, and they're appealing to the base by pushing ideas like abolishing the electoral college, the green new deal packing. The supreme court. How does that affect democrat? Like, Laura Kelly who. Got a govern in a largely conservative state before we go. I I think that could put pressure on someone someone like lower Kelly, obviously, I think, you know, she she took a interesting stance when it came to the Lectoure college, but things like packing, the supreme court that probably would not fly very well in in Kansas where you have a lot of people who are conservative who who would get their antennas up. If you start talking seriously about that, you know, I think thinking back to what her role is in the presidential election. She someone who's being seen as a model for defeating Trumpism because she she defeated a candidate who had very close ties to Trump Trump came and campaigned for and she approached it with a very kind of moderate centrist message. So the people who are pushing the who are pushing the Democratic Party in that election. I think are looking to her as an example of how to proceed with this election, Brian Lowery, Washington.

"Four months ago five months ago when they did their semi annual review they came back and said, oh, they're seeing more economic growth. So now over the next ten years they're seeing that one trillion of that is now coming back into the the marketplace. So we'll have more tax revenue. So it's part of that economic growth that was a big piece that we're seeing now that so positive so you still think that the tax cuts are going to pay for themselves. I do think they will pay for themselves over the ten year period. And and we're we've already seen signs of that. And Congressional Budget Office is starting to revise their numbers upward. So that's that's all positive signs. What is it going to be like for you to go from being the majority in the house to the minority in the house as a Republican? Well, I think one of those things that we wanna make sure that we continue with the new hundred and sixteenth session is that we continue to get some things done and with the Democrats in the majority Republicans in the minority there there may be a tendency to to do pet projects and some political. Oh posturing, but it'd be disappointing. If we spent the next year with a bunch of hearings and a bunch of investigations, and we really didn't do anything for the American people over the next two years. I mean, were you saying the same thing though, about what Republicans did with some of the investigations into Benghazi and other things when they weren't chill. Well, I think there's a responsibility that we need a as the legislative branch to have that checks and balances on the executive branch, but at the end of the day, the American people look to us to actually get results and get things done, and there's so many areas that we can agree on of from a standpoint of supporting our veterans making sure tax cuts permanent. There's also some looming problems out there. So securities were spending down the money that had been put aside for the baby. Boomer's if we just follow the same model, we did back in the nineteen eighties that extended the life of security, then and we need to come back and do some things like that. Well, what do you mean? Do you mean raising the age for social security or or? Making it. So that you can only get it if you are a certain income level or does that mean so part of what was done back in the nineteen eighties was a several different changes. One of them was raising the retirement age from sixty five to sixty seven. So you think it should be now? Well, we're looking at when social security was created in nineteen thirty seven the average life expectancy was sixty three. And the sixty five was said as the retirement age now with our average life expectancy going into the seventies. We need to come back and revisit that just from a you've got to figure out ways to make the math work. So I I don't have a fixed number as a retirement age. But I think that's one of those things we need to look at is just some of those options that were looked at in the in the nine hundred eighty s and basically repeat that model that has congressman Ron ESTES, a Republican who represents the fourth district in Kansas, congressman, thank you.

"I'm Robin young. I'm Jeremy Hobson it's here. And now the Dow Jones industrial average dropped more than seven hundred points this morning after news that a Chinese executive from the tech company while way was arrested in Canada at the request of the US. There's concern that this will further escalate the trade war with China days after a temporary truce congressman Ron ESTES represents the fourth district in Kansas. He's a Republican it's an area that depends on trade with China. Because of its agriculture cartoon when you saw the markets dropping today after this arrest what you make of it. Well, I think there's probably two pieces of that one. The stock market goes up and down of you look at it the last couple of years, it's up. It's up a lot. You know now in the last few weeks it's been up and down on a week by week basis. So you'll see a lot of movement on on the market, depending on on news that comes up, but I think one of the important things about the the most recent news is that we've been in this ongoing trade war for a long time with with countries like China, and a multiple cases that have been filed against them, and they found guilty of stealing intellectual property. And and that's the concern that we want free and fair trade. I mean we wanted in our manufacturing facilities. We wanted in our agricultural areas. And we want to have open markets in China wants to trade in a free world with open markets than every country ought to follow the same rules, and we want to make sure that that happens. So do you think that President Trump should get rid of the tariffs on China and other countries, or or do you think that it's a good idea to keep them in place that at the end of the day tariffs are not a good idea? I mean, we want to have open markets. We're going to have free trade. You know in an ideal world, we wouldn't have any terrorists at all. I think the prisoner even said that once or twice in g twenty but he did just call himself tariff man, the other day, he said, man. Yeah. Unfortunately, the whole process to get to that free and fair trade is terrorist may be the only avenue that you have to really bring people to the table to negotiate how much your farmers in your district being hurt by the tariffs that that are being put on products that they produce. I I think the what we're seeing a lot is the the anti-terror reaction we've seen some grain prices down. But then they were they were on the way down over the last three or four years, the farmers that I talked to overwhelmingly they wanna have open markets. They wanna have this dispute resolved. But they wanna make sure that it's done fairly. And we make sure that it's a lasting agreement that works for everybody. I want to ask you about taxes because you were the state treasurer under Sam Brownback, the former governor. There in Kansas who was a big fan of tax cuts put for a big tax cuts. Many looked at it and said it they didn't work out the way that he wanted them to. And in fact, the Republican legislature ended up over riding his veto to get rid of them. What do you think about those tax cuts that happened in Kansas? Do you think that they were a failure? Well, I think what you see is a couple of differences. If you compare the the Kansas tax cuts versus the tax cuts at the federal level on one aspect. You didn't get the growth out of Kansas at the time. The tax cuts came in the all markets dropped so old and grass is one of the mainstays of the state. So you saw decline in state revenue that was would have happened, regardless of what the tax rates were on the federal level when we look at the tax cuts here. The biggest piece that we're seeing is that strong positive economic growth because we've given businesses we've given individuals some reliability some consistency of what to expect. But also a big increase in the. Deficit as a result of those types. Yeah. And what if you look at the Congressional Budget Office, which is kind of the nonpartisan office. It does that a year ago when the tax plan was being brought up it was dated that over ten year period. Just lowering the rates would result in a one point five trillion dollar reduction in tax revenue..

"I, if we are to scale down our approach to incarceration, I can't even put into words how much money that will save us. And those are resources that could go to things like victim support, even sometimes victims security. If you've been stalk. By someone and we're not going to imprison that person. Let's let's talk about how we can keep you feeling safe and keep you actually safe with that person not incarcerated for some period of time. You know, I think there are ways to better serve victims in the process than what we're doing today to especially because today, if if that's stalker is sitting in prison, continuing to fixate on you as victim and eventually is released. No-one served by that and I'm just using stalking as one example of many obviously. But I, but I've been thinking a lot about that victim perspective and it is an important one in one I don't wanna leave behind in the conversation. Yeah, I think it's really hard and that's why I kind of brought up the. We're not just talking about non violent drug offenders here. We have to really think hard about what this means for violent crime, how we want to treat people who commit violent crime. How we think about those people. I was just noticing. I think I'm going to watch it. I'm at, I'll be intrigued to see if any of our listeners have watched it. I, it's. A new Netflix show, or they're talking to men who committed murder in berry, like sort of in-depth ways to hear their stories. I think it really honestly to the way you think about present and crime, whether you're a victim or not is a lot is very predictive on sort of how you see the world. Do you see the world an into an individual's place in it as all choice? Because I feel like I have conversation with family members that they just feel like everybody's just making their own individual choices in everybody can choose better in a given moment. That's not personally how I see the world. You know, I don't see. I don't see us as just everybody's an island making their own choices. I feel see us as individuals doing the best we can and incredibly diverse array of circumstances as players and complex systems that we don't make the rules for that sort of outlook and philosophy plays a lot in how you feel about this too. I think that's well said, and it's something that I think about a lot too because I tend toward whatever the environmental systemic factors are. We are still responsible for our own choices. And that is my main objection to the the system of incarceration. It deprives everyone of the agency to do better. You know, I think a lot about that saying and I won't get it exactly. Right. Probably because I've put my own spin on it somewhere along the way about how most people need a place to call home an experience, a meaningful experience of love and meaningful work to do. And I think that's what most people really do need. And our prison system takes people who weren't getting those things anyway. Probably most of the time and says, you're never going to have them. What do we think is going to come of that? Yeah. All right. Shifting dramatically to Tuesday's elections. We had a special election, Ohio, which my favorite point was what a giant waste of money since these days are just dudes are going to just have to turn around and run run against each other in November. And then we had primaries in Kansas and Michigan. Am I missing anything? Missouri. Oh, Yamazoe are-. Missouri.

So Charles, thanks, technological advancements will eventually result in privacy being thing of the past, but can we really just blame technology? If anything hasn't the case of the Golden State killer shown that we can rely on human beings to willingly surrender that privacy in exchange for other information. Today we're talking about people who get DNA testing may before a genealogy website like ancestry, don't call them well, my heritage comb. Have you ever done anything like that? Like sent DNA to one of these websites to Tracy, Ron. ESTES I haven't do all the people who have Denise syndrome coat is professor of forensic genetics at King's College and has been researching forensic technology since nineteen ninety. I'm storm. Why people do it. It's really interesting to find your descendants and ancestors. I don't know how useful it is. It's a bit like astrology, really. It's not. It's not particularly useful, but people enjoy it. The problem for me is that the companies are revealing a large amount of information about a person's genetic background, which is private information potentially could be abused if it gets out anywhere else. Can I ask what you mean about it? Not being useful demean that finding out who your ancestors all isn't useful. G mean that the technology doesn't really work people engage with these for different reasons, and they may not have even really thought about the reasons, but it's quite often to find somebody in their family tree and the sites quite good at that in some areas. Quite good. Some people are interested in the ancestral background here. Do I have a vehicle Viking GM on that some team. Much nonsense. We all probably descended from people who were Vikings along time ago, whether that's visible in our jeans is just a matter of chance. And certainly if they go to different companies, they get different results which really just reflect. Not how likely they are to be descended from a particular population group. But really how come how like they are amongst the people who apparently living in those areas in their particular, the company's particular database. And that varies. They databases vary. So you said that the information differs across the databases. Does that mean that we could say that the results on entirely accurate? Don't entirely because they're just dependent home. The people who have contributed the DNA to that database. After the break Denise and I will talk more about what actually happens to our DNA once we spat into a tube and send it off in the post. I think I'm most concerned with the genetic information that we giving away. So if people are making inference about a particular trae that anybody has to me is a danger will be right back.

Welcome back to with everything. I'm Jordan. Erika Weber if all the bright, we spec Charles to Mosa who gave us a brief history lesson on forensic technology just depend on home the people. Then we tend to Denise syndrome court to find out more about these DNA testing kits. Can you explain anyone who hasn't tried this themselves? How these testing kits? Actually, while usually they come kit, which explains what you have to do. You have to depose a certain amount of saliva into into a tube, and then you put it in the posts and then get the results back online. Say, obviously the more people sign up for these websites, the more people sending in their day, the more this kind of DNA information is stored in huge databases. Somewhere researches of said that more than twelve million people have used these DNA testing kits. So there's a lot of information out there who has access to it and what could it be useful? We're on. I think you have to look very carefully that terms and conditions. But my understanding is that while the genetic information that they provide you, he's yours, Fe have been given you pay them to collect your DNA. Now I don't know what of the uses they might make about DNA potentially that information without material is very valuable to other people. I don't know whether they they might set it or how that actual material is dealt with after that is it destroyed is it kept is poss- to a third party. So in looking at a science terms and conditions are really important, and this discussion has obviously become more relevant with the recent arrest of the Golden State killer all the somebody's thought to be the Golden State Gila who was found by tracing his desk relatives to an undercover account on a dean yelling website, which was set up with a sample of his DNA. As the news came out, people have expressed concern about the privacy of all this kind of DNA data. They right to be worried will need to be formed on the difficulty is that in order to find your relatives, which is really why people go onto these websites, you'll. Very many TIs might of own might not have deposed to the DNA on different sites. So the difficulty comes, I think jet much have recently said, well, you can even destroy heels this information you can ask for it to be deleted. So that implies that, will you go along, you put your information on the site. You do your search and then you get rid of it. So benefits you and you making use of all these other people who haven't destroyed DNA, but it relies on people not destroying that information. What are the risks then if somebody else gets hold of your DNA information or even DNA profile Bill of links of others or suppose please could use it for good purposes or not. So good purposes. It's obviously if any, any sort of match or any inference made by the police results in them contacting somebody than that. To me is a pro because person they content his probably not involved in any crime, and they van having their privacy infringed. Und- lot of the information is information about our whole genome and some countries it will be. For example, in Germany wouldn't be spoiled to do this by the state because looking at somebody's genome is is legal, but not here Vermont regulations here. I mean, I can't see. It wouldn't be very useful if it was done here. These sites jet much very US based. And because of the size of the population there, the number of samples that have come from the United States own these databases and the relatively low proportion of the people who are on please database in comparison with with here where we have very few people proportionately. On these databases and lots of people on the police database. It wouldn't be very useful to be done here. And anyway, I think it would only be done in very particular, come senses Sayer now that people have side thinking about this kind of thing. And you've said, you know, people should read the terms and conditions of ac- but is there any chance that we would see wider regulation top down maybe from the government in the UK or in the US, and how would that even work? I'm so often these these novel innovations come upon his them. We start thinking of the implications. The implications might be substantial in different countries will do with in different ways. An in the United States, people are quite cavalier about testing of people's DNA, whereas in the United Kingdom, it's criminal offense for me to take account and test the DNA that was left on that car. P- unless it was authorized by the police. Y'all get prison for two years for doing that was completely different in the United States. They don't care and different countries. Different jurisdictions have different feelings about the ethics of of these matters. What do you think is consensus out of all this? I think I'm most concerned with the genetic information that we giving away. Generally, these are what we call single nuclear type polymorphism set are often have some sort of association with medical trays which we may know now or we may not know, but we may discover the future and these snips as we call them not necessarily determinant offer trae. They just Tiga long with it and in different areas of the world, they different ones tag along. So if people are making inference about a particular trae that anybody has that to me is a danger, say in the US, for example, with maybe be a risk that you know if your DNA suggests that you might have this disease than maybe healthcare would be more expensive. That's strong possibility. Yes, yet. The snips that have been associated may not in further disease tool? Yes. So so there's a risk for discrimination then? Yes, certain? Yes.
