Any comparative forensic analysis is only as “good” as its baselines. In Landslide Denied[1]—our archetypal post-election comparative forensics study, in which the “red shift” (the rightward disparity between exit poll and votecount results) was identified and measured—a critical component of the analysis was to establish that the exit poll respondents accurately represented the electorate. We employed a meta-analysis of multiple measures of the demographics and political leanings of the electorate to demonstrate that the exit polls in question had not “oversampled” or over-represented Democratic or left-leaning voters (in fact any inaccuracy turned out to be in the opposite direction), and therefore that those polls constituted a valid baseline against which to measure the red-shifted votecounts. In Fingerprints Of Election Theft,[2] we went further and removed all issues of sample bias from the equation by conducting a separate poll in which we asked the same set of respondents how they had voted in at least one competitive and one noncompetitive contest on their ballot. The noncompetitive contests, being presumptively unsuitable targets for rigging, thus served as the baselines for the competitive contests, and the relative disparities could be compared without concern about any net partisan tendencies of the respondent group.
More recently we have commented on the feedback loop that develops between election results and polling/sampling methodologies, such that consistently and unidirectionally shifted votecounts trigger, in both pre-election and exit polls, methodological adaptations that mirror those shifts.[3] Approaching E2014, we observed that the near-universal use of the Likely Voter Cutoff Model (LVCM) in pre-election polling, and stratification to demographic and partisanship quanta derived from (rightward) adjusted prior-election exit polls in all polling, were methodological distortions that pushed both exit polls and pre-election polls significantly to the right, corroding our baselines and making forensic analysis much less likely to detect rightward shifts in the votecounts.
Indeed, given the rightward distortions of the adaptive polling methodologies, we noted that accurate polls in E2014 would serve as a red-flag signal of rightward manipulation of the votecounts. In effect, the LVCM and the adjusted-exit-poll-derived weightings constituted a rightward “pre-adjustment” of the polls, such that any rightward votecount manipulations of comparable magnitude would be “covered.”
It is against this backdrop that we present the E2014 polling and votecount data, recognizing that the adaptive polling methodologies which right-skewed our baselines would combine to reduce the magnitude of any red shift we measured and significantly mitigate the footprint of votecount manipulation in this election.
The tables that follow compare polling and votecount results, where polling data was available, for US Senate, gubernatorial, and US House elections. The exit polling numbers represent the first publicly posted values, prior to completion of the “adjustment” process, in the course of which the poll results are forced to congruity with the votecounts.[4] The “red shift” represents the disparity between the votecount and exit poll margins. For this purpose, a margin is positive when the Democratic candidate’s total exceeds that of the Republican candidate. To calculate the red shift we subtract the votecount margin from the exit poll margin, so a positive red shift number represents a “red,” or rightward, shift between the exit poll and votecount results.

July 4th, symbolic day of our nation’s birth. Also EDA’s birthday, the day we went live six years ago. It is a day of great celebration for many, remembering America’s greatness. It is a day when they play patriotic films one after the other on movie channels, so you can watch John Paul Jones say “I have not yet begun to fight,” and hear Jimmy Cagney sing “It’s a Grand Old Flag,” and listen as Lincoln repeats from the grave, “ . . . that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
I spent a good part of this special day fighting back tears, unsuccessfully when listening to Mr. Lincoln. For it is apparent that the form of government he invoked at Gettysburg is perishing, if not from the earth then from his own dear country, our country, on our watch. Rigged elections remove “by the people” and “for the people” from that majestic sentence, and sentence The People to the most pernicious form of tyranny: that which does not even have the courage to declare itself, but instead cloaks itself in the trappings of democracy and illusions of self-rule.
When we founded EDA six years ago we knew what we were up against. We knew that damning evidence of computerized election rigging had already been dismissed with a shrug and would likely continue to be dismissed with a shrug. We knew that, as with any inside job, the perpetrators were sitting in the catbird seat with a big head start. We knew that, as with any Big Lie, the architects and engineers of election rigging could count on “never happen here” denial to protect them from serious investigation and exposure.
What we didn’t know was how many informed people with cellphones would find some excuse not to call 911, how many would turn out to be bystanders, going about their business-as-usual with a shrug. Whether it’s Kitty Genovese dying in front of dozens of lighted windows or a democracy dying in front of dozens of opinion leaders with “too much on their plate,” Bystander’s Syndrome is a tragic phenomenon. When each of us says “intervention would be inconvenient, or risky, or distasteful and, besides, someone else is sure to take care of it,” we fail the ultimate test of citizenship, of patriotism, of human kinship. The twist is that, unlike the bystander safe in his apartment turning off the light and going back to bed, none of us is safe—the bell we talk over and take pains not to hear is tolling for us.
In 2012 EDA will attempt once again to parlay very modest resources into the best forensic detection apparatus we can assemble. I have asked myself why we are bothering, why any new evidence will matter when all the old evidence has been digested and excreted without so much as a polite belch. I can think of two reasons: we have a responsibility to history and to truth itself to establish at least some reviewable record of the lies being told; beyond this, and more encouragingly, we are finally seeing some cracks in the never-happen-here wall of denial. A bit of media coverage here (e.g., and, a promising piece of legislation there (e.g., Masschusetts Election Laws Reform Act of 2012, H. 4139 ), but most of all a growing skepticism that the kind of national politics we are suffering in the computerized voting age makes any sense at all absent a pervasive thumb on the scale in the darkness of cyberspace.
I sense a metastasizing awareness that we have a problem, a dreadful problem. It is close to coming into sharp focus, like a boil breaking the skin. There will be a powerful article in a major MSM publication this fall. There will be a powerful book following in its wake. It won’t take that much more and EDA will do everything possible to push awareness, shock, and outrage to critical mass. There’s plenty of energy in the politics of this time, much of it misdirected. That energy, as the never-happen-here veils are torn down, can yet save us and save our country. Please be part of it. Please support us. Please carry awareness to others. Please don’t be a bystander. Please don’t turn off your light.
With appreciation and best holiday wishes—

Wisconsin: New Year, Same Stench

What we got tonight, June 5th, in Wisconsin was the same old stench, coming from the same old corner of the room, even more pungent than usual. If it smells a bit acrid to you, that would be the ashes of your democracy still smoldering. To wit, there was a huge turnout (highly favorable to the Democratic candidate Barrett), in fact they’re still waiting in line to vote in Milwaukee and elsewhere nearly two hours after poll closing; and the immediate post-closing Exit Polls had it a dead heat, 50%-50%. But the only place those polls were posted was as a Bar Chart in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Not a single network posted any Exit Poll numbers, though they all have been regularly posting them throughout the 2012 primary season within a few minutes of poll closing. But they all called the race “extremely tight,” since they were looking at the same 50%-50% Exit Poll that the Journal Sentinel at least had the courage to post in some format.

In short order, and quite predictably, the race was Walker’s, the networks anointing him the “easy winner” as the Exit Poll “Adjustment” Process played out. You could actually see it on the Journal Sentinel’s Bar Chart: the blue bars shrinking and the red bars lengthening every 20 minutes or so.The adjustment process was egregious, a whopping 7% disparity between the Unadjusted Exit Polls and the Adjusted Exit Polls congruent to the eventually-to-be-announced “official results.”

We’ve seen this before, election after election, the familiar “Red Shift.” And it’s the Exit Polls that are always “off,” because the Votecounts must always be “on.” Except that the Votecounts are secret and in the full control of outfits, with strong right-wing affiliations, like Dominion Voting and Command Central.

Votes counted by partisans in complete secret–is this sane?

If you’re finding it hard to conceive of characters nefarious enough to rig an election, consider this: today massive robocalls were reported to have been placed to targeted Barrett supporters, telling them they didn’t have to vote if they had signed the recall petition, and others that they couldn’t vote if they hadn’t voted in 2010. Ask yourself this question: is there a bright ethical line between making (whoever actually made them) targeted robocalls telling your opponents’ supporters they don’t have to vote if they signed the recall petition versus setting the zero-counters on a bunch of memory cards to, say, +50 (for Walker) and -50 (for Barrett) so at the end of the day the total votes add up correctly, the election administrator sees a “clean” election, and you’ve shifted 100 votes per precinct? Do you believe that characters who have clearly not blanched at doing the first would for some reason blanch at doing the second–much neater and more efficacious as it is?

And if you’re thinking “well the pre-election polls predicted a Walker win,” you should know that the methodology for all of those polls, even the ones run by left-leaning outfits, was the Likely Voter Cutoff Model (see, which disproportionately eliminates Democratic voters (students, renters, poor, minority) from the sample and so can conveniently skew it up to 10% to the right (the pollsters all would have been out of business by now if they had kept using a sound methodology and getting all these red-shifted competitive elections wrong with it).

This election was dubbed “the second most important election of 2012;” it will “foretell” November just as the Massachusetts Special Senate Election (Coakley-Brown) “foretold” November 2010. And there was a massive red shift and even more than the usual indicators that it was rigged. Can anyone live with that, just give it a pass, and sleep tonight? If so, is it that you can’t face the action imperative that would be attendant upon recognition and acknowledgement, or even honest open-minded inquiry? Or is it that, as Dylan Thomas once wrote, “After the first death, there is no other?”

Many Aussie supplement fanatics have been buying from Keto Gummies
and giving great feedback. If you’re following a ketogenic diet and want to try gummies as a way to
boost your ketones, these could be worth a try. They also contain ACV (apple cider vinegar) which boasts an array of
benefits itself. These keto gummies are quite a massively popular trend these days.

Keto gummies are a popular snack or supplement choice for individuals following a ketogenic diet. The ketogenic, or
“keto,” diet is a low-carb, high-fat dietary regimen that aims to put the body into a state of ketosis, where it burns
fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. Keto gummies are designed to align with this dietary approach, offering a
low-carb, sugar-free alternative to traditional gummy candies.

These gummies are typically made with sugar substitutes like stevia, erythritol, or xylitol, which provide sweetness
without the high carbohydrate content of regular sugar. This makes them a suitable treat for those on a keto diet, as
they can satisfy sweet cravings without disrupting the state of ketosis. Some keto gummies also include added
ingredients such as MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil, which is a type of fat that can be more easily converted into
ketones, further supporting the metabolic state desired in a ketogenic diet.

In addition to being low in carbs, keto gummies often contain other beneficial ingredients. For example, many are
fortified with vitamins and minerals to supplement the diet, especially those nutrients that might be less abundant in a
typical ketogenic meal plan. Collagen is another common additive, which can support skin, hair, and joint health. Some
keto gummies are also designed to provide specific health benefits, such as enhancing energy levels, improving
digestion, or supporting weight loss efforts.

However, it’s important for individuals to consider the overall nutritional profile and ingredients of keto gummies
before incorporating them into their diet. While they are a convenient and tasty option, they should not replace whole,
nutrient-dense foods. Additionally, individuals with dietary restrictions or health conditions should consult with a
healthcare professional before adding any new supplement, including keto gummies, to their diet. As with any dietary
supplement, moderation is key, and keto gummies should be consumed as part of a balanced diet to ensure optimal health

Why Australians Are Flocking To Keto Gummies

The rising popularity of keto gummies in Australia can be attributed to several factors, aligning with both global
health trends and specific Australian lifestyle preferences. As Australians become increasingly health-conscious and
aware of dietary choices impacting overall well-being, keto gummies have emerged as a popular option for those seeking a
balance between healthful eating and indulgence.

Firstly, the keto diet itself has gained significant traction, mirroring its popularity in other parts of the world.
This high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet appeals to those looking for effective weight management strategies and a means to
improve their metabolic health. Keto gummies fit seamlessly into this dietary regimen, offering a convenient and
enjoyable way to adhere to the strict carb limitations of the diet without feeling deprived of sweets.

Secondly, the convenience factor plays a big role. In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, consumers are often looking for
quick and easy dietary solutions. Keto gummies provide a hassle-free way to enjoy a sweet treat or supplement one’s diet
without the need for time-consuming preparation. This convenience is particularly appealing for busy professionals,
parents, or individuals who are often on-the-go.

Another reason for the popularity of keto gummies in Australia is the increasing availability and variety of these
products. Australian markets have seen a surge in the availability of keto-friendly products, with gummies coming in
various flavors, shapes, and formulations. This variety caters to a wide range of tastes and preferences, making it
easier for individuals to find a product that they enjoy.

Furthermore, there’s a growing awareness regarding sugar consumption and its health implications. Keto gummies offer a
sweet treat without the high sugar content of traditional confectionery. This aligns well with the health goals of many
people who are trying to reduce their sugar intake due to concerns about obesity, diabetes, and other health issues.

Lastly, the social and cultural aspects of food cannot be overlooked. As keto diets become more mainstream, they are
increasingly featured in social media, cooking shows, and health blogs. This visibility has helped to normalize and
popularize keto-friendly products like gummies, making them more socially acceptable and sought-after.

In summary, the popularity of keto gummies in Australia is a reflection of broader dietary trends, the convenience and
variety these products offer, a heightened awareness about sugar consumption, and the influence of media and social
norms on dietary choices. As Australians continue to prioritize health and convenience in their dietary choices, it’s
likely that the demand for keto gummies and similar products will continue to grow.
