Prior to being Mesa County Clerk, Tina Peters was a charlatan who made a living promoting work-from-home, get-rich quick schemes and selling unproven health remedies like magnets, shoe inserts and dietary supplements, telling people they would improve conditions like neuropathy, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, autism and diabetes. As she awaits her February, 9, 2024 trial on criminal charges, she is falling back on this tactic, turbo-boosting her cons by capitalizing on her new-found fame as a national figure in the election denier business.
This time, however, her new-found charlatanism is far more dangerous and corrosive to American society.
“Transhumanistic reptilian cyborgs”
Tina has her own show now, “The Tina Peters Show,” on Rumble.com, an online video platform favored by far right-wing users. The show gives her an outlet to talk about how she is being “persecuted for doing her duty to expose election fraud as an elected election official [by] the criminal elements from Attorney General Merrick Garland on down,” (9/1/23 show).
She used her September 4 show (screenshot at top) to promote a wellness conference put on by a “team of natural health experts,” including Dr. Edward Group (above pic, center), who actually said on her show,
People are talking about these [Covid-19] injections, it’s so much more than that. Their plan is to create a transhumanism reptilian cyborg, and that’s all documented in all of their papers for quite some time. In 2019, it all came together…wifi routers are direct energy weapons… That might sound insane, but that’s what they doing to try to create this next generation of robotic humanoids, and they’re doing it with CRISPR technology using snake and other venom peptides that are highly resistant to damage.” –Edward Group, on Tina Peters 9/1/2023 talk show
Sponsors of Tina’s show include makers of dehydrated beef to stockpile in advance of armageddon, Mike Lindell’s MyPillow gear, and bogus anti-Covid supplements, like “Spike Support,” below, which Tina vouches for by telling viewers it has “has brought me better mental clarity.”
Tina is flying around the country, getting feted as a star, getting her expenses paid and collecting honoraria for speaking at quasi-religious, revival-like gatherings, where she continues to beat the drum of election denialism and claims to be “exposing the truth about election fraud.” She typically uses the same lines over and over, like “I can’t unsee what I’ve seen,” “They’re persecuting a gold-star mother who never even got as much as a parking ticket, ” “I won’t back down, I won’t give in,” “This is not a political situation, this is a God vs. evil situation,” and “These D.A.s and prosecutors are domestic enemies…They’re just tramping all over the Constitution and their day is coming…I believe a lot of these cases are going to go to the Supreme Court and I believe a lot of people are going to hang, I really do…”
Tina Peters merch
Tina is also raising money by selling Tina Peters merch, like these T-shirts, which sell for $25 apiece:
Tina is also still soliciting donations for her legal defense, telling adoring audiences that her legal defense will cost $1 million, but that she is undaunted by that sum because, “What God brings you to, he gets you through, can I get an Amen?” She tells people they can help her effort to save America by donating to her legal defense fund:
Tina is also soliciting donations for personal support on GiveSendGo, a free Christian crowdfunding platform typically used for charitable causes, like missionary trips, medical expenses for needy families and memorial funds. A 2022 report compiled about GiveSendGo by LogicallyAI, a group that seeks to reduce the harms caused by mis- and disinformation, criticized GiveSendGo for allowing January 6 insurrectionists, the Proud Boys, and Kyle Rittenhouse to use their site to raise funds for their respective legal defenses. They also found GiveSendGo was “the hub for a multi-million dollar far-right funding network,” comprised of “well-known QAnon supporters, anti-vaccine activists, and the far-right media outlet Project Veritas.” GiveSendGo is also the go-to fundraising site for the “Stop the Steal” election denier movement.
So Tina is biding her time until her criminal trial next February by engaging in activities to enrich herself by swindling people and corroding American society.
It may take a prison sentence to stop her.
