For example, they promote chemtrails NASA Admits To Chemtrails As They Propose Spraying Stratospheric Aerosols Into Earths Atmosphere as well as telepathy, which is not possible: Telepathy Is Easier Than You Think . They also promote anti-vaccination propaganda such as this Scientists Expose A 30 Year Government Vaccination Cover-up.
