American Pastors Network Advances Anti-Semitic ‘Globalist’ Conspiracy Theory

Tomi Collins, executive director of the right-wing organization America Restored, appeared on the American Pastors Network’s “Stand In The Gap” radio program earlier this week to discuss the “huge problem” of purported election fraud in the U.S., which she claimed to be perpetuated by “enemies to our sovereignty” and “globalists.”

Collins alleged that state voter rolls are being made available on “the dark web” for nefarious forces to exploit in order to carry out massive voter fraud.

“Twenty-one state voter rolls are on the dark web,” Collins said. “When you go on to the dark web, they’re claiming that they are updating these every month, they’re claiming that they have contacts on the ground in these states. Across the board, they are not saying that these are things that we have hacked; they’re saying that these are relationships that we have built and we’re updated monthly or we’re updated weekly. The evidence is looking like that’s exactly true.”

Voter rolls were found on the dark web prior to the 2018 midterm elections, Forbes reports. However, researchers say that the appearance of the rolls online does not mean voter databases were breached, explaining that the rolls could have been stolen from resellers who legally sell voter information to campaigns.

Collins also warned that “bad actors” control the intellectual property used in voting machines, which she claims makes these machines vulnerable to misuse and fraud.

“Folks, look at Snopes— which I believe is not a good source—and they say ‘No, George Soros is not involved in these voting machines.’ I’m sorry, it would be Smartmatic . . .  where the chairman is Lord Malloch-Brown, former deputy director of the UN, Soros’ vice president for his investment funds, and I believe his vice chairman for his Open Society, that he just placed the majority of his 18 billion or 17 billion dollars of wealth in. So these guys are bad actors, and we see that this Lord Malloch-Brown and Smartmatic, the last time we see is that they still own the intellectual property, which is aka software, to a huge percentage—close to 50 percent of the voting equipment in our nation. They control the software meaning there doesn’t have to be a hack,” asserted Collins.

No evidence exists showing Smartmatic to have supplied technology for the 2016 elections, and a statement issued by the company in 2016 reads, in part, “Smartmatic will not be deploying its technology in any U.S. county for the upcoming 2016 U.S. Presidential elections.” The company also states, “George Soros does not have and has never had any ownership stake in Smartmatic.”

Collins also claimed to have documented “massive fraud” in the 2018 midterm elections, saying her organization had cross-referenced every House race where the Republican “should not have lost” but did, and discovered that the voting machines used in those races were manufactured and controlled by a Canadian company. “At what point did we as American citizens allow foreign actors to come into our country and be in control of these voting machines?” she asked.

Collins then discussed what she sees as a conspiracy against the United States led by “globalists”. By blaming “globalists” for this election fraud, Collins invoked a common anti-Semitic trope used frequently by the right to attack Soros and other prominent Jewish figures.

“We have to recognize that a lot of the problem stems from globalists, some people might call them RINOSWhatever—they’re globalists who would like to see the collapse of the United States of America and for us to have a one-world government,” Collins declared. “They are embedded in power positions within our government. I believe prior to President Trump, all the previous presidents were partaking in this. . . If you’re a president who partook in it, you’re not going to want to fix it.”

Collins continued her rant by insinuating that Soros has control of both Republican and Democratic state-level secretaries of state. “One of the most important elections in our country is secretaries of states. You know who recognizes this? George Soros and his cronies and his friends . . . don’t think that because you have a Republican secretary of state that you’re in the clear. We’ve been trying to work with some of these Republican secretaries of states and to me they’re just Democrats in disguise.”
