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.

Maori might have been the first to discover Antarctica, with connections to the icy continent and its surrounding oceans stretching back to the seventh century, researchers say. A new paper by University of Otago combines literature and oral histories, and concludes that Maori were likely the first people to explore Antarctica’s surrounding waters and possibly the continent in the distance. They write that Maori and Polynesian journeys to the deep south have been occurring for a long time, perhaps as far back as the 7th century, and are recorded in a variety of oral traditions.

Until recently, the location of executed Japanese prime minister Hideki Tojo’s remains was one of World War II’s biggest mysteries in the nation he once led. Now, a Japanese university professor has revealed declassified US military documents that appear to hold the answer. The documents show the cremated ashes of Tojo, one of the masterminds of the Pearl Harbor attack, were scattered from a US Army aircraft over the Pacific Ocean about 50km east of Yokohama, Japan’s second-largest city. It was a tension-filled, highly secretive mission, with US officials taking extreme steps to keep Tojo’s remains, and those of six others executed
In India’s capital, New Delhi, thousands of commuters yesterday crowded into underground train stations and shopping malls, prompting some doctors to say that it could lead to a resurgence in COVID-19 infections. Major Indian cities have begun lifting strict lockdowns as the nationwide tally of new infections has dropped to its lowest level in more than two months. However, disease experts and doctors have cautioned that a race toward resuming business as usual would compromise vaccination efforts, as only about 5 percent of all 950 million eligible adults have been inoculated. Doctors have said New Delhi’s near-complete reopening is concerning. The city’s authorities
