Rev. Christopher Thoma
“Go to church. And take your children. Yes, yes, I know that in general children are not very good at listening or sitting still, and this can make worship very challenging. Still, I say go to church—and take your kids—because, for the record, there is something that children do magnificently. They imitate adults. “ – Rev. Christopher Thoma

Breggin MD is known as “The Conscience of Psychiatry” for his many decades of reform work in the the mental health field, but has now turned his attention to the misuse of science surrounding COVID-19 and its origins in what he and his coauthor Ginger Breggin are calling "global predators." He is an intrepid scholar & methodological as he assembles all the pieces to the puzzle. His research, carried out with his wife Ginger, is impeccable, and his incisive approach sears the neck of those whose aim it is to wield power, control, and instill fear among the world's wealthiest nations.

"I am not in favor of the legislature getting involved in mask mandates of any kind. I believe in personal responsibility and bodily autonomy for every individual as we each decide what is best for us. I would rather that the Governor hold firm to not allowing mandates and to leave the decisions up to the people." Rep. Strong (VT Daily Chronicle)
