Wisconsin Recall Elections: Are the 20 Year-old Methods of Ralph Reed and the Christian Coalition Coming to Fruition?

Gary G. Kohls, MD

”It (the Christian Coalition’s political agenda) is like guerrilla warfare. If you reveal your location, all it does is allow your opponent to improve his artillery bearings. It’s better to move quietly, with stealth, under cover of night. You’ve got two choices: You can wear camies and shimmy along on your belly, or you can put on a red coat and stand up for everyone to see. It comes down to whether you want to be the British army in the Revolutionary War or the Viet Cong. History tells us which tactic was more effective.” -- Ralph Reed, (Los Angeles Times - 3-22-92)

Gary G. Kohls, MD

The recall election of Wisconsin Republican governor and preacher’s kid Scott Walker will be held next week. Several of Walker’s fellow NeoConservative legislators are also on the recall ballot for betraying many of their constituents by…

Has There Been a Fascist Coup in This Country?

Gary G. Kohls, MD

Many of us who are anti-imperialists and therefore also antifascists will sadly recall that following the stolen presidential election of 2004, John Kerry inexplicably and far too readily conceded defeat, despite the evidence that the infamous Diebold voting machine fraud had given the Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rove/Bush administration control of the White House for another four years. Following the 2004 electoral coup (see the powerful documentary about the election fraud of 2000, entitled “Unprecedented: The Battle for the Presidency in Florida and the Undermining of Democracy in America”), a politically savvy and historically knowledgeable acquaintance of mine from the East Coast (who happens to be Jewish) wrote an important essay that I attach below.

The Neurological, Psychological, and Spiritual Costs of War and Violence

Gary G. Kohls, MD

For the last decade of my 40-year career as a family physician, I practiced what was best termed holistic mental health care (i.e., using non-drug approaches, gradual psych drug withdrawal, nutritional therapy for the brain, and psychoeducational psychotherapy to achieve mental wellness).

What Did You Do In The War, Daddy?

Gary G. Kohls, MD

“What Did You Do in the War, Daddy?” was the title of a wonderful book written by Sabine Reichel. Reichel was born in devastated Hamburg in 1946 to Nazi-collaborator parents who were respected in their post-war community but had never talked to her about what they had done during the war years. The truth only came out during Reichel’s young adult years.

Then They Came for the Children An Analysis of the Official Cover-up of the Unwelcome Truths About the Canadian Genocide of Aboriginal Children

Gary G. Kohls, MD

By Guest Columnist Bill Annett From a recent edition of “The Canadian Shield” (Volume 3, Issue 3, titled “The Truth That Failed”) We’ve just spent half a day (perhaps too much) reading a 115-page tome, neither scholarly nor journalistic mais tous les deux, titled “They Came For The Children.” It’s the interim report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, that icon and crowning triumph of the conservative Stephen Harper’s Canadian majority government.

De-Mystifying Drug Addiction

Gary G. Kohls, MD

People who are addicted to nicotine, alcohol, street drugs, or psych drugs, or simply have addictive potential, may be lacking certain nutrients that the brain requires to manufacture the natural brain chemicals that are called neurotransmitters. The major neurotransmitters that affe

America’s Mental Illness Disability and Dementia Epidemic: It Turns Out That the Drugs Are the Problem

Gary G. Kohls, MD

Since the introduction of major tranquilizers like Thorazine and Haldol, “minor” tranquilizers like Miltown, Librium and Valium, and the dozens of so-called antidepressants like Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil, tens of millions of unsuspecting Americans have become mired deeply, to the point of permanent disability, in the American mental “health” system. Many of these innocents have actually been made “crazy” and often disabled by the use of—or the withdrawal from—these commonly prescribed, brain-altering, and, for many, brain-damaging psychiatric drugs that hav

A Response to the March 15 letter to the Reader entitled “Taking Gary Kohls to Task”

Gary G. Kohls, MD

I welcomed the challenges in last week’s Reader letter from Doctors D’Allaird, Doane, Duus, Heck, Jagim and Saracino to my occasional Duty to Warn columns that have mentioned unwelcome information about the dangers of the seriously over-prescribed and proven to be neurotoxic synthetic chemicals known as psychotropic drugs. Most of the Duty to Warn columns also contained information abou

Another Day, Another Celebrity Suicide, Another School Shooting

Congratulations America. In recent months you have managed to claim a few more celebrities to suicide and/or homicide. And there is no sign that the trend is subsiding. Not only are celebrities at continued risk, but you have claimed hundreds...

Whatever Happened to the Original Form of Christianity?

Gary G. Kohls, MD

From time to time I read about condemnations of religion coming from non-religious groups, especially concerning the all-too-common violence perpetrated in the name of their gods. Indeed there is plenty to condemn.

An Open Letter from the not-so-Great Britain Regarding Occupy London

Today I received the most recent in a series of letters from a London correspondent of mine, attorney Paul Warburton. Over the past few years, Paul has been relentlessly pestering, in a series of very articulate letters, the powers-that-be ...
