There’s something very wrong with Dr. Shiva AND his claims about the vote in Michigan

I see now that I should have trusted my instincts about Dr. Shiva, whose case about the vote in Michigan, as Kathy Dopp meticulously demonstrates (scroll down), simply does not add up; and—more important—because the weakness of his case will, more than likely, serve to make it easy to laugh off ALL claims of election fraud, and thereby “certify” the (seemingly) official outcome of this last election.

As Steve Freeman points out here, the fact that Shiva instantly became the face of election integrity, his claims getting far more traction than many other, more compelling signs of theft, is reason for suspicion of his motives and true function in this post-election drama.

All REAL signs of election theft MUST be duly investigated, regardless of which side demands it. That (Democratic) election integrity activists are now reflexively dismissing ALL such signs as “baseless,” just as the Republicans, and all the media, did back in 2000 and 2004, is a gross betrayal of the principles on which this movement always has been based (or so I thought).

From Steve Freeman:

The existence of Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai and his omnipresence on the Internet should make any thinking person more suspicious than ever about the 2020 election. Not because there is any merit to his “evidence” of election rigging, but rather the opposite.

Shiva’s “weighted race” argument is ludicrous to anyone who takes even a few minutes to reflect on basic mathematics. It’s cleverly choreographed, produced and focus-group-tested, no doubt, well before the election. It works because America is innumerate and reflexive rather than reflective, Trump and Trump supporters even more so than the country at large.

Phase 1 (completed!): Before we are even able to get our bearings, Shiva has 3 million+ views, and he has become the face and spokesperson for claims of election fraud.

Phase 2: Next, he will be “exposed” by msm in order to generally debunk ALL claims of election fraud. (Of course, it already has been exposed, but only by geeks, not msm and not to the siloed Trump camp, which is wolfing this down like a pack of starving rottweilers being fed poisoned steaks: Millions of views, e.g., Michigan Voter Fraud with Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai Part 1, Up votes: 4.7K, Down 30 – well over 100:1!) 

Phase 3: Q.E.D. “It was a clean election. Time to move on.” Applauded and reshouted by Dems who of course, somewhere in their confused brains, know better that elections are not clean, and at least once knew that when they were stolen, the last thing the country should have done was simply “move on.” Coup completed 

From Kathy Dopp: 

Everything I have seen from MIT’s Dr. Shiva re. election stuff is hopelessly nonsensical.  E.g. He doesn’t seem to comprehend that: 

(1) the number of registered voters is not the same as the number of voters participating in any election 

(2) the number of votes is ALWAYS much greater than the number of voters who vote in any election because there are more than one election contest on each ballot 

(3) that subtracting a larger number (because you’ve assigned it a smaller denominator) from a smaller number is always going to produce numbers less than zero and if you arrange the results deliberately in order from greater to smaller, you will always get a downward sloping line (no matter which political party or candidate you focus on). 

In short, I have not yet seen even one (1) alleged method to detect election fraud coming from Prof. Shiva that makes a lick of common or logical sense yet.  Perhaps if he keeps trying he may eventually succeed at doing something better than my worst remedial mathematics students back when I once taught a remedial math course for a university, but I have yet to see it.  I wish him the best future success for his efforts, and hope he learns enough about elections and basic arithmetic of fractions to begin making sense soon.

Based on the comment by Kathy Dopp or Dupe, “the number of votes is ALWAYS much greater than the number of voters who vote in any election because there are more than one election contest on each ballot”, she is clearly an idiot. Only one voter votes on one ballot for every election contest on that ballot. No one claimed that each election contest on a single ballot is voted on by separate individual voters….except maybe Kathy Dopp/Dupe. And no one else said that because it’s not true. Simple common sense. Who writes this tripe? Hilarious attempt to smear Dr Shiva Ayyadurai. They are so inept, instead of using his correct title, Dr, they call him professor. Ever heard of Google? You can easily find his correct title. There’s this thing called the internet.

Kathy lost me in her first paragraph. I learned how to add and subtract at a very early age, what happened with her??? Maybe she is the one that needs to go to remedial math classes. I hate the thought of her teaching my grandchildren any math. Geez, where do these people come from?

For someone who teaches communications, this blog post is virtually incomprehensible and serves no purpose other than to discredit someone you don’t like (Dr. Shiva).

I stumbled upon this post because, as a resident of his home state, Massachusetts (MA), I have decided to back Dr. Shiva’s efforts to build a grassroots movement for those of us who are not represented by either the Democrats or the Republicans.

While I realize you were commenting on Dr. Shiva’s analysis of the Michigan vote, which I know only a limited amount about, did you know that something very strange happened here in our 2020 Massachusetts Senate race, which Dr. Shiva ran in?

By way of background, did you know that 60% of Massachusetts voters are Independents (not enrolled in any political party)? I fall into that category.

Now for the election. Our Junior Senator Ed Markey (D), is liked by very few people because he lives in Maryland year-round, never sets foot in Massachusetts, and never responds to his constituents. He also doesn’t represent the views of the majority of MA residents. Instead, he focuses on far-left national issues, which most of us don’t agree with.

Anyway, this disastrous Senator, who we’ve been stuck with for 44 years, ran against Joe Kennedy (D), who was my Congressional Representative, in the primary. I’ve met Kennedy several times, and think that he is far superior to Markey. Not one person I know voted for Markey in the primary… and low and behold, Markey handily defeated a Kennedy, in Massachusetts, where Joe Kennedy is popular and Markey is not…. interesting; I wonder how that happened.

Then, we move on to the the “Republicans.” They don’t allow real Republicans to run for office in MA. Shiva was a former Independent, turned “Republican” because when he ran for Senate against Elizabeth Warren, he was barred from the debates for being an Independent. So, he changed parties to participate in the debates. Upon seeing him get onto the ballot as a “Republican” the MA GOP found a guy who no one in MA has ever heard of to run against Shiva. This candidate, Kevin O’Connor, was a Democrat until a few years ago, but changed parties because he felt that the Democrats had shifted too far left in their views. Now he is a “Republican (RINO)” and was endorsed by the MA GOP. This unknown guy, Kevin O’Connor, who I voted for in an attempt to oust Markey, did not actually campaign.

I live in the Boston Metropolitan area and I never saw even one yard sign supporting Kevin O’Connor. Supporters could not get bumper stickers either (I tried this myself). Other than the Republican Committee in my town, no one in my town or the surrounding towns ever met this candidate.

Shiva, on the other hand, bought a bus, and with a group of volunteers drove through the state meeting people and distributing yard signs. His supporters did TWO standouts down the street from where I live during the Primary and Shiva’s subsequent Write-in Campaign. And, they left his yard signs on a corner where they had been standing. (A week before the General Election, I also found a business card on my car’s window with information about Dr. Shiva for U.S. Senate’s write-in campaign.)

Ironically, even though Shiva had name recognition, and not one local person I polled could name his opponent, his opponent beat him in the primary in every county where they use electronic voting machines. Only in the single county where the ballots were hand-counted did Shiva win.

And, now for the kicker… when Shiva’s supporters did a FOIA request for voting records, they discovered two things: 1) that in many towns, there were more votes than people voting (counted in the Senate race only – do not confuse these actual voters with the number of registered voters); 2) the unknown “Republican” candidate (O’Connor) beat Shiva in every single county.

O’Connor received 60% of the votes and Shiva received 40% of the votes — IN EVERY COUNTY.

We are not a homogeneous state. Some counties have many POC (mostly Democrats), others have a lot of immigrants (mostly Democrats), others have affluent professionals (mixed Democrats, Republicans and Independents), and a few counties are heavily Republican. Yet, all of these diverse counties voted O’Connor 60% and Dr. Shiva 40%. AMAZING! I wonder how that happened? (HINT: it couldn’t have been some sort of election fraud, could it?)

Also, O’Connor mentioned that he had received a record number of votes in the General Election, the fourth highest of any Republican who had ever run for Senate in the history of MA, while barely campaigning. He also mentioned that the Democrats spent tens of millions of dollars in MA to guarantee that Markey retained his seat. Never mind that the majority of voters in MA hate Markey and wish he would retire already (he’s 74 years old and has accomplished nothing).

What do you make of this? Is it all proof that Dr. Shiva is just a crazy fraud? If so, why is Ed Markey still the Junior Senator for Massachusetts? Maybe the people you quote in this blog post, without explaining who they are, could comment on the Massachusetts Senate race. I’d love to know how it worked out the way it did.

Oh, and by the way, just so you know, it was an African-American Democrat, a software developer named Bennie Smith, who discovered the weighted race feature when he was asked to evaluate the Dominion (formerly Diebold) voting machines a number of years ago. In a video, I heard Bennie say that this feature is integrated into the software of all of our voting machines, not just Dominion.

Due to this “feature” the votes are stored as double floating decimals, not integers (whole numbers), which allows someone to assign a “weight” i.e. multiply by a factor such as 2 or .50. What does Steve Freeman (whoever he is) think of that? Is Bennie Smith just as ludicrous as Dr. Shiva for having discovered that the “weighted race” feature was described in Dominion’s User Manual (I also have a copy of this manual)?

I would love to have a copy of that Dominion Manual.
If it doesn’t expose anyone to lawsuits could it be made available for
general download?

Charles, you didn’t understand what Kathy wrote. She did not say there was more than one voter per ballot, she said there is more than one election contest per ballot. What she wrote is correct.

Each voter votes on more than one contest on a ballot (if they choose to, they also have the choice of leaving some of the contests blank). In the majority of elections, there will be more votes than there are voters because there are multiple contests.

That’s not the biggest problem with Shiva’s election fraud claims, however. He implies that voting machine features that are used for specialized purposes like referendums (e.g., school referendums or traffic light referendums) were used in the 2020 presidential election. This is wrong.
