Amidst all the terrible front-and center news stories these days,
...and the terribly annoying ones,
...there's been another story lurking on the side bars and second pages that in a different time, a time before half the country could shrug off a violent attempt to overthrow the United States government, would have left every American shocked to speechlessness.
Over the past few days news outlets have been reporting the revelation that Ginni Thomas,
...the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas,
...was involved in the attempt to overturn the 2020 American Presidential election and have Donald Trump re-instated as President.
It was recently uncovered during the Congressional investigation of the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol,
...that soon after Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden Ms. Thomas began pressuring Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows, who was himself instrumental in planning the January 6 "Stop the Steal" rally that was the beginning of the attempted insurrection,
...to take action to overturn the election results.
Among the documents that Meadows turned over to the Congressional investigators were dozens of emails sent to him by by Ms. Thomas urging him on in their crusade to keep Donald Trump in office:
"Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!! ... You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America's constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History,"
"I can't see Americans swallowing the obvious fraud. Just going with one more thing with no frickin consequences... the whole coup and now this... we just cave to people wanting Biden to be anointed? Many of us can't continue the GOP charade."
“Biden crime family & ballot fraud co-conspirators (elected officials, bureaucrats, social media censorship mongers, fake stream media reporters, etc) are being arrested & detained for ballot fraud right now & over coming days, & will be living in barges off GITMO to face military tribunals for sedition. I hope this is true.”
Among Mark Meadow's responses to Ginni Thomas:
“I will stand firm. We will fight until there is no fight left. Our country is too precious to give up on. Thanks for all you do.”
“This is a fight of good versus evil. Evil always looks like the victor until the King of Kings triumphs. Do not grow weary in well doing. The fight continues. I have staked my career on it.
Ginni Thomas's emails to Mark Meadows also indicated that she was in communication with Sidney Powell, Donald Trump's legal advisor, Qanon conspiracy theorist and purveyor of fabricated voting fraud claptrap:
“Sidney Powell & improved coordination now will help the cavalry come and Fraud exposed and America saved.”
"Sounds like Sidney and her team are getting inundated with evidence of fraud. Make a plan. Release the Kraken and save us from the left taking America down."
Thomas's texts show that she was also in communication with Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner about supporting her efforts to keep Trump in office:
“Just forwarded to yr gmail an email I sent Jared this am,”
Ginni Thomas was present at the January 6 Donald Trump rally during which Trump directed those present to march on the United States Capitol, the march that turned into an attack on our government. A few days after that thankfully failed event Thomas wrote to Meadows of her disgust with Mike Pence for certifying Joe Biden's election victory:
"Most of us are disgusted with the VP and are in a listening mode to see where to fight with our teams."
Now, all of the above words and behavior came from the wife of a Supreme Court Justice who, according to the New York Times, once said of his wife, that she works “24/7 every day in defense of liberty.” and that, “We are equally yoked, and we love being with each other because we love the same things."
Is it within the realm of believability that a man who, in his own words, is yoked to his wife and loves the same things she does would have had no knowledge of this great personal crusade that she was involved in? That he who is a guarantor of justice and the laws of our land would not have known that what his wife was promoting was nothing short of sedition?
Perhaps these questions would be less troubling if Clarence Thomas had not been the only Justice on our country's Supreme Court to object to the release of the White House documents to the January 6 Commission; if he had not been the only Justice who held that any White House documents pertaining to January 6 should be kept secret under executive privilege; and if the documents he was arguing to keep secret did not contain his wife's seditious emails.
With the revelation of Ginni Thomas's connection to the attempted overturn of the election, the members of the January 6 Commission are considering whether or not to subpoena Ms.Thomas to testify before the Commission.
Which begs several questions: Why are the Commission members merely considering subpoenaing Ginni Thomas? Why hasn't Ms. Thomas already been called before the Commission to answer for her actions? In fact, why hasn't her husband Justice Clarence Thomas been subpoenaed by the Commission to answer for why he didn't recuse himself from the case concerning the release of the January 6 White House documents?
Does the one whose job it is to mete out justice to others stand outside the requirements of justice himself?
Is answering before the law for one's wrongdoing not required of the politically powerful and well-connected?
Or is that sort of thing only required of the fools on the ground?
