1) I believe the letter from Dr. Ford was written by a third party.
2) Oh yeah, it’s #coffeetime, Monday, September 24, 2018.

And yeah, I am as sick of having to write these threads as you are of reading them.
3) In fact yesterday I declared I was done ✅ officially. There is no level beneath which these swamp rats will not sink.
4) But someone pointed out that the font on the letter was inconsistent.

And I realized that I might be able to contribute to this conversation.
5) But first lets get out of the way for once and for all the notion that Kavanaugh is some kind of rapist.
6) The reason everyone is denying knowing anything at all about any of these parties — whether at Georgetown Prep, Holton Arms or Yale — is not because they didn’t happen.

They’re denying it because it did.
7) In other words—and you need only look at the Holton Arms yearbooks—the rich and powerful party hearty.
8) And all the stuff people think happens at these parties, actually does.
9) Who in their right mind, among the countless members of our Nation’s elite, is going to admit that they regularly went to parties where orgies happened? Where “jungle juice” alcohol was liberally available? Maybe even drugs?
10) Of course they are all circling the wagons.
11) The problem with Dr. Ford—if she was popular, and if 10th grade was “initiation year” at Holton—is that she probably partied quite a lot.
12) And the problem with Mark Judge is that he documented the culture of party till you puke, a culture that Kavanaugh was part of both in high school and in college.
13) I find it ironic that the same people who want to use government money in our schools to teach children to have sex — the same people who plant articles in Teen Vogue about sodomy — are the ones who scream “RAAAAPPPEE” because Brett Kavanaugh was part of heterosexual life.
14) What about Obama’s Air Force One?

“‘The best sleepover party ever' where everyone took their drug of choice on long flights – Sonata, Xanax or Ambien – which made any 'awkward intimacy with colleagues suddenly just funny and bizarre.’”
15) Before I continue, please know that I express my own personal opinions only.
16) It is important you know that I speak only for myself, because in this next part I am going to offer my professional opinion as to why this letter seems fake.
17) My professional opinion is based on 2.5 years of being responsible for constituent letters from Congress. Meaning, I have scanned, read, reviewed, routed and responded to hundreds of them.
18) I have been a professional writer for 30 years.
19) I have a Ph.D. in sociology and a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary studies with a focus on creative writing.
20) And I have taught at the graduate and undergraduate levels in half a dozen well known colleges and universities since 1999.
21) First of all, as has already been pointed out, Dr. Ford’s letter does not read like a very educated person wrote it.
22) Here is the letter.

23) The first clue is that she capitalized “high school.” In this sentence, it doesn’t need to be capitalized.
24) It has been my experience at work that private citizens generally use their best English writing skills in communicating to Congress. Dr. Ford has a Stanford pedigree, is a PhD, and is heavily published. The letter is sloppy.
25) The second clue is the first line of the second paragraph. As others have pointed out, the font size is not consistent; is this a sloppy printout she is sending on a letter of historic importance?
26) Also noteworthy is that she says “in the early 1980’s.” The grammar here is wrong - you would write “1980s” without the apostrophe.
27) Further, in the letters I have reviewed, emotional constituents are usually hyper-specific about their complaints — never vague. Logically, that is why they are writing to Congress: to remedy a wrong that is clear to them, but not others.

So “early 1980’s” is not normal.
28) Here’s another odd thing. Why didn’t she put Kavanaugh’s name in the first line, eg “I am writing to express my concerns about Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
29) Why did the writer of the letter go to such pains to say: “I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since...”

What does “knowingly” refer to?
Was she drunk at other parties and can’t remember him?
30) “They” locked the door. Who is “they?” Which one? Both together?
31) “a very drunken Judge said mixed words to Kavanaugh” — this is the writing of either an illiterate or someone for whom English is a second language.

—“Very drunken”? She means “very drunk.”

—“Mixed words?” She means “said contradictory things.”
32) This is not to offend people who don’t have good English skills or who are struggling to learn. Rather it is to point out that the letter does not reflect someone of Dr. Ford’s professional rank.
33) The awkward English and poor grammar is interspersed with flowery language.

“The two scrapped with each other,” for example.

“I was able to take this opportune moment.”
34) Why does she refer to psychotherapy as “medical treatment?”
35) This person has been published in countless peer-reviewed journals.

Doesn’t add up.
36) Another example: The letter writer refers to the same bathroom twice, but the second mention makes it sound like it is a totally different bathroom.
37) If she is married and published under her married name why is she using her maiden name?
38) Why doesn’t she refer to herself as “Dr.?” Where is her return address? Where is Feinstein’s address? Eshoo’s?
39) The word “confidential” appears three times, once in bold. Where did Ford agree to have her name released again?
40) Shift in tense here: “It is upsetting” (present tense) but “I felt” (past tense). Again not PhD level writing or even basic business writing.
41) Where is the Privacy Release Form that would allow Feinstein to inquire on Ford’s behalf?
42) Why is Eshoo so silent?
43) Why did Ricki Seidman, a loyal Clinton and Obama operative, say. 20 days before the letter was written, “I expect a strategy will emerge” to counter Kavanaugh? dailycaller.com/2018/09/21/ric…
44) Timeline:

July 6, “I notified my local representative.”

July 10, Seidman does interview predicting “strategy.”

July 30–letter.

Was it snail mailed or emailed? Faxed?
45) This whole story just doesn’t add up.

Starting with that very fake-sounding letter.

I think this Tore is a fake. She has been posting slides from a presentation widely leaked and reported on.
She talks about being a localization specialist because they're good at blackmail. That doesn't make any sense. Localization has to do with creating strategies that appeal to local populations. From a development perspective it is correlated with resilience. There is no magic.
In her words: "What I did was something called Localization or L-10N. So localization strategy is you find a group of people...you kind of try to get in their mind...you use that to your advantage...so if I wanna blackmail you...I will know your deepest, darkest fears"

1) Starting a near-midnight thread, basically to help me collect my thoughts on a variety of related topics.
2) I would really prefer to just do research and then go out with that. But oh well
3) When you see all this I think you'll understand why my head is exploding a little. And it's hard to just stay focused on one thing.

1) Should we alter the historical narrative to make its victims feel better?

It’s #coffeetime

2) I remember when the local school changed Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day.


Hard to spell.
3) So I guess this is how you have to teach it now.
