Parents of ‘snatched’ baby promote toxic cure-all

The interconnections amongst troofers, scammers, and grifters of the conspiranoid ilk never fail to amaze and astound.

Questions mount for Jon Wedger

Usually this time of year is a bit of a snooze-fest in Hoaxteadland, as even SRA hoax-pushing conspiracy theorists like to take a bit of down-time between Christmas and New Years.
