Other topics you will find are alien visitations, chemtrails, anti-GMO propaganda, and anti-Vaxx articles such as this: Does The CDC Have Evidence To Support Their Statement “Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism?”
Regarding vaccines, The Pulse frequently promotes disinformation regarding Covid-19 vaccines, such as The COVID Vaccine Narrative Has Sunk, And The Powers That Be Have Stopped Trying To Hide It and Researchers Examine Autopsies of Two Boys Who Died Days After COVID Vaccine. There are no confirmed deaths involving children linked to the vaccines.
