Retraction: Steve Freeman Is Not A Mathematician

{with the merged thread, the adjusted view count is +38}

{on edit: That doesn't mean he doesn't have mad math skills. I'm just saying, who are you going to believe about the exit polls as concerning 2004? Why is a college professor named Mark Lindeman whitewashing election fraud? You gonna believe him? Or are you going to believe the overwhelming evidence.

Maybe he is a mathematician. There's a lot of sophistry being thrown around simply to muddy the waters.

Bottom line: people have to realise that DU and DailyKos are rigged. They need to understand what psy-ops and brain washing really are. They need to recognize disinfo and hidden agendas.

You can check Lindeman out on some videos. He is very smarmy. He reeks of status quo and privilege. He was saying how global warming presents us with exciting times for change. He was rambling about the carbon credit schemes or something.

Quit polluting the planet. Stop ignoring what this military-university hybrid is doing to our skies and well above. Look at their public plans to geoengineer. Watch how nothing really changes but a bit of tweaking. Look at how China's *** was kissed at the Olympics. I'm more concerned about their industrial pollution and penchant for throwing folks in "re-education camps." 9/3/08}


Greg Palast And RFK Jr. Fighting For Clean Elections

Obama Doesn't Sweat. He should.
by Greg Palast

In swing-state Colorado, the Republican Secretary of State conducted the biggest purge of voters in history, dumping a fifth of all registrations. Guess their color.

In swing-state Florida, the state is refusing to accept about 85,000 new registrations from voter drives – overwhelming Black voters.

In swing state New Mexico, HALF of the Democrats of Mora, a dirt poor and overwhelmingly Hispanic county, found their registrations disappeared this year, courtesy of a Republican voting contractor.

In swing states Ohio and Nevada, new federal law is knocking out tens of thousands of voters who lost their homes to foreclosure.

My investigations partner spoke directly to Barack Obama about it. (When your partner is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., candidates take your phone call.) The cool, cool Senator Obama told Kennedy he was “concerned” about the integrity of the vote in the Southwest in particular.

He’s concerned. I’m sweating.

It’s time SOMEBODY raised the alarm about these missing voters; not to save Obama’s candidacy – journalists should stay the heck away from partisan endorsements - but raise the alarm to save our sick democracy.

And that somebody is YOU. Joining with US, the Palast investigative team. Here’s how:

We have been offered an astonishing opportunity to place the Kennedy-Palast investigative findings on a national, prime-time, major-network television broadcast. Plus, separately, we have an extraordinary offer to create a series of reports for national network radio.

But guess what? The networks will NOT PAY for our public service reports. We have to raise the start-up funds in the next two weeks to film it, record it and get it on the airwaves.

WE need YOU to fund the reports, DISSEMINATE the findings as we post the print, audio and video on the web– and ACT on it.

So, for only the second time this year, I am asking each one of you to make a tax deductible donation to the non-profit, non-partisan Palast Investigative Fund of $500, $150 or $100.

Progressives have complained for years of no opportunity to get the hard, cold sweaty truth on the air. Well, put your money where your heart and soul is.

Donate at least $500, I’ll send you every book I’ve written and every film, signed.

Send $150 and I’ll send you as a gift, a copy of John Ennis' film Free For All, the brilliant and funny film about the Theft of Ohio. AND I'll send you, signed, a copy of my book, Armed Madhouse, plus a copy of the BBC/Democracy Now film investigations, The Election Files and a copy of the spoken word CD Live from the Armed Madhouse all signed.

Donate $100, and I’ll send you 3 copies, one signed to you, of “The Elections Files, “ the best of our BBC/Democracy Now films – including special never-broadcast interviews with Kennedy and fired prosecutor David Iglesias.

I know you’re ponying up for your favorite candidates. But what’s the point of winning folks' votes IF NO ONE COUNTS THEM?

Please make your donation – today. No corporation, no big foundation, is going to take on this emergency in our democracy. The election’s about to be stolen – for a third time. SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

Donate today (for $1,000 minimum, we’ll list you as a Producer of our next DVD, in gratitude). Why? Because the only way to get the vote-chewing cockroaches out of the voting machinery is to turn on the lights – tell the truth on them. On prime time.

After our team busted the story of Katherine Harris’ attack on innocent Black voters as “felons,” the NAACP sued and won back their rights. The truth CAN make the difference. Yes, we can. Indeed, we HAVE.

Think all votes should be counted in America? Then YOU stand up and be counted. Don’t expect networks or commercial sponsors to pay for your democracy. Feed the truth, donate $100 right now and pass on a copy of the Elections Files to your dippy cousin who thinks Kerry lost fair and square.

Donations from our prior and only request already paid for some of our filming in the Southwest. Don’t let this story be swept under the border.

Pass this on!

I like to check out the Democratic Underground Electoral Reform Forum every once in a while to see what is going on. There are a few people there I trust. Anyway, the last couple days I have noticed a couple stories to do with the McCain Camp sending out illegal absentee ballot applications. I'm not saying that it is illegal for politicians to send out the applications, although it does sound odd. But the problem is that the applications contain errors that have made all of them null and void.

Here are a few of those threads.

McCain Campaign Admits Mailing 1 Million Bad Ballot Applications To Voters In Ohio

WARNING: McCain campaign sends out bad absentee ballot applications to Obama donors

Then I went to the BradBlog to see what they had on this. Unless I am mistaken, this story is being buried. All I could see was a blogpost on the lipstick on a pig story.

Is BradBlog a gatekeeper tabloid?

I don't think Mark Lindeman is the typical paid poster. But It does seem that it is part of his job requirement to do so. He goes out of his way to whitewash stolen elections. He posts prolifically at Daily Kos and Democratic Underground, where he has expressed no meaningful progressive ideas. He could easily be a Republican who is breaking the Democratic Underground rules by posting there. Kos is also rightwing. We all know by now that the netroots have been rigged.

He's always harping about the exit polls, even when that it is merely one issue to do with election integrity. He never gets involved in anything other than his repetitive, stereotypical debunking. I think he works for corporate "non-profits" who are trying to get paper trails for the computer machines. Talk about lipstick on a pig. The word is that many left leaning people are getting their votes purged. It is not tinfoil to say that the American government is guilty of high crimes and steeped in as much corruption as any other in our brief history. These crooks do not represent the ideals of the average American.

Mark Lindeman admits he has no math skills to critique Freeman or anyone else.

still some problems here

Steven Freeman is not a statistician. Or, if you prefer, he is no more a statistician than I am. His Ph.D. is in organization studies.

I'll take Freeman's math skills any day over the astroturfing, Markos Zuniga associate. I think this is all part of his job description somehow. Or maybe he thinks he is making a name for himself by whitewashing elections? I doubt that.

He seems to be extra cozy with the Verified Voting Foundation, whom I do not trust. I do not want their Hertzberg-like activism. If you have to make it the elections a national holiday in order to make sure everyone gets to vote and that their votes count, then do it. Also, get rid of the electoral college. One person, one vote is the only way to ensure every vote is weighed equally.
