As my recently completed viewing of the new Amazon Jack Reacher series will attest, I have a high tolerance for bull#&$* as long as there is a delicious little government secret involved. The recent reveal that Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, was not only at the riot at the Capitol, but apparently was desperately texting White House Chief Of Staff Mark Meadows to overturn the election results, reminds me of the plot of an airport bestseller. If that book was really, really stupid.

Virginia “Ginni” Thomas is, to put it kindly, an absolute loon. Being an absolute loon, it is not surprising she took to Trump's half-baked conspiracy theories with a bib and fork.The full content of the texts has yet to be released, but we do have some bits and pieces. These bits and pieces sound exactly as much as something pulled from the baleen of Facebook’s misleading content filter as you think they would.

It's all connected!

When I first heard about this story, I assumed that texts between a Supreme Court Justice’s wife and a White House Chief Of Staff would at least be like… readable. Something like “Hey Mark! I am a little bit concerned with all I have been hearing about the election results… I hope you guys are taking this seriously.”

Here is one of the texts that was sent:

“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 love an all-caps GITMO. You might as well be labeling a message DO NOT READ.

Honestly, I think the airport thriller probably has a massive overlap with conspiracy theorists. I think a lot of people ravenously signed up for the nonsense that channels like OAN and YouTube “researchers” spout because they want reality to be as exciting as the stories they read. Unfortunately, the operations of the U.S. Government are massively, deeply boring. Unless there’s a Tom Clancy novel about filling out forms in triplicate that I missed.
