The wife of US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is using her Facebook page to amplify claims of corruption by former US vice president Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate.
Virginia Thomas on Monday asked her more than 10,000 followers to consider sharing a link focused on alleged corruption by Biden and his son, Hunter, as well as claims that social media companies are censoring reports about the Bidens.
Last week, she reposted a video that features US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and the headline: “The Biden Crime Family: How They Made Millions.”
Again asking people to share the link, Virginia Thomas wrote: “The mainstream media does not want people to know the facts of what this video reveal.”
On Oct. 14, she pointed followers to an attack on philanthropist George Soros.
“Who is really running the Democrat Party? The Soros family,” the shared link said, featuring photographs of Soros relations with Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton.
On Oct. 12, she linked to a video by conservative commentator Dan Bongino asserting that Biden has dementia.
Three times this month, she wrote about what Trump and his supporters call Obamagate, an unsupported claim that former US president Barack Obama broke the law by spying on Trump and his associates during the transition between their administrations.
On Oct. 10, she wrote: “More citizens should KNOW about the biggest scandal and the evidence now piling up! #ObamaGate.”
On Oct. 17, she posted a photo of a man identified as a conservative who was protesting outside Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. The photo showed the man with a bloodied mouth and teeth missing.
She wrote: “Why is the left violent and why don’t Democrat’s [sic] condemn this?”
A few hours earlier, Virginia Thomas complained about apparent collusion between the media and the Biden campaign to shield the candidate from tough questions.
“Media + Biden/Harris team [equals] PROPAGANDA and Corruption. #WalkAwayFromDemocrats and the Mainstream Media! Find new news sources!” she wrote.
Clarence Thomas is the longest-serving current justice, having joined the court in 1991, and on Monday evening he administered the oath at the swearing in of new US Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Both Thomases were at the White House on Monday for the ceremony. During the ceremony, Virginia Thomas sat next to Jesse Barrett, Amy Coney Barrett’s husband.
She wrote on Facebook on Tuesday that she was “so excited” to be at Amy Coney Barrett’s swearing in.
“Clarence said as we left, I wish your Mom was still alive, which drew my tears, as she would be living each minute and emotion of this historic day...a day President Trump made possible!” Virginia Thomas wrote.
‘SPIKES’: Rudy Giuliani at a hearing asked about voting data in Pennsylvania, with a witness saying that 570,000 votes they selected were for Biden and 3,200 for Trump US president-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday said that Americans “won’t stand” for attempts to derail the US election outcome, as US President Donald Trump called for results to be overturned. Biden said in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware, that Americans “have full and fair and free elections, and then we honor the results.” “The people of this nation and the laws of the land won’t stand for anything else,” he said. However, Trump is challenging the results, with lawsuits under way in several states. “We have to turn the election over,” he told a hearing in Pennsylvania. “This election was rigged.” “All we need is
A CAUTIONARY TALE: Bookseller Lam Wing-kee speaks of the danger that his adopted home Taiwan now faces and the ordeal of his detention in China Lam Wing-kee (林榮基) leaned forward in his chair, answering quickly and sharply to issue a warning to the people of his new home, Taiwan. “Be ready now,” Lam said. “We should be more alert as citizens, we should get ready,” the 64-year-old Hong Konger said. “If they can take Hong Kong back, the next place, I feel, is Taiwan.” Late in Taipei at Causeway Bay Books Mark II, on the 10th floor of a nondescript building, Lam, a wiry, gray-haired bookseller, was sitting at his desk with a bemused gaze behind thin oval glasses. The desk was neat, but crowded with books and a

Not enough beds and not enough doctors: a skyrocketing COVID-19 caseload is pushing hospitals in the Balkans to the cusp of collapse, in chaotic scenes reminding some medics of the region’s 1990s wars. After nearly a year of keeping outbreaks more or less under control, the nightmare scenario that the Balkans feared from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic is now starting to unfold. In hard-hit Bosnia-Herzegovina, one doctor described the distress of having to juggle the care of multiple patients whose lives were hanging by a thread. “The situation reminds me of the war, and I’m afraid it could get even worse
