The hilarious ego-laden pseudoscience of virology

I've not been keeping an eye on the news for nearly four months. Regular visitors may recall that my last News Bytes post was made in early June. The primary reason for ignoring most news, which i tend to do now and then, is because 95+% of it bad news and reading all that bad news every day can take a toll on ones demeanor and outlook.

One area of 'bad news' i haven't kept up with is the (non-existent) SARS-CoV-2 "virus" sewage still being pumped out by the lame-stream media, governments and stupid doctors and scientists who have an ego to protect. I've read enough books and listened to quite enough educated doctors and scientists in order to form a strong, scientifically sound opinion which dictates that no one has ever isolated SARS-CoV-2, nor any other alleged "virus", ever, using the scientific method.

To any reasonable adult, the word 'isolate' means to separate one thing from all other things, yet virologists literally do precisely the opposite when they claim to have "isolated" a "virus". They create conditions never found in nature which cannot support life then, when the cells die, as they are destined to do, they claim that the debris/exosomes emitted by the cells are "the virus". Never mind that exactly none of these indoctrinated fools have ever isolated anything according Koch's postulates, much less proven that these alleged "viruses" can be transmitted among anything, human or otherwise.

There's plenty of books and other resources readily available for those who want to learn about the sordid history of virology and germ theory. Two books i would recommend as primers on the subject are The Contagion Myth - Why Viruses (including "Coronavirus") Are Not the Cause of Disease and Virus Mania, 3rd edition: How the Medical Industry Continually Invents Epidemics, Making Billion-Dollar Profits At Our Expense. There's also plenty of testimony, interviews and talks by many doctors and scientists on alternative social media and video hosting platforms such as BitChute and Odysee. One of those doctors, Dr. Samantha Bailey, has produced many videos on the subject of "viruses", germ theory, terrain theory and other aspects of health and disease. She and her husband, Dr. Mark Bailey, are both extremely well educated on the subject of virology and germ theory verses terrain theory. Following is Dr. Sam's latest video. Many more can be found on her Odysee channel.

(Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know About Every (Incredibly Shitty) Web Browser Out There

The modern web is an f'n joke, and so is every single mainstream (and not so mainstream) web browser. With wildly unnecessary use of JavaScript (this site included...for the moment), and malware, tracking, fingerprinting, data harvesting and reliance upon a plethora of intrusive 3rd parties for frameworks, fonts, analytics, CAPTCHA's, content delivery networks, scripts, ads, completely useless bullshit, etc., today's web has become a gigantic, privacy-hating shit-hole and, as a consequence, so has every modern web browser.

For a very long time i have recommended Firefox hardened with the 'arkenfox' user.js and some crucial extensions for anyone that cares about privacy and security, not because i'm any sort of Firefox fanboy (i hate Mozilla) but because i see Firefox as the only candidate that is best suited to privacy hardening at this time. In other words, i believe Firefox to be the lessor evil, but evil nonetheless. It's a very sad state of affairs but that's where we're at.

To know more about why all modern web browsers are crap, i highly recommend the articles, How to choose a browser for everyday use?, Mozilla - Devil Incarnate and my own article, The Mozilla Monster. My only niggles with the first piece is that i don't see uMatrix as being irreplaceable and i certainly don't see Pale Moon as a viable alternative to a hardened Firefox.

Using NordVPN? Run away!

NordVPN is garbage, but so are many, many other providers of so-called Virtual Private Networks which are really just translucent proxies. Don't get me wrong though, VPN's are certainly useful depending on what one is wanting to achieve and i personally think a good VPN is fitting for many people that care about privacy, but they do not provide the stealthiness most people think they do. As for NordVPN, the following is from my article, Tor versus a VPN – Which is right for you?:

NordVPN is a huge player in the VPN market and i have used them in the past, however Nord's service wasn't very good, one reason being unstable connections and another being blacklisted IP addresses. Also i find the shear size of the company, their cheap prices, poor history, and a recent merger to be worrying. Finally, Nord has had some extremely serious security issues. In 2018 NordVPN suffered a catastrophic hack and failed to handle the situation in an ethical manner.

NordVPN, a virtual private network provider that promises to "protect your privacy online," has confirmed it was hacked.

The admission comes following rumors that the company had been breached. It first emerged that NordVPN had an expired internal private key exposed, potentially allowing anyone to spin out their own servers imitating NordVPN.

[...]

NordVPN told TechCrunch that one of its data centers was accessed in March 2018. "One of the data centers in Finland we are renting our servers from was accessed with no authorization," said NordVPN spokesperson Laura Tyrell.

The attacker gained access to the server - which had been active for about a month - by exploiting an insecure remote management system left by the data center provider; NordVPN said it was unaware that such a system existed.

[...]

NordVPN said it found out about the breach a "few months ago," but the spokesperson said the breach was not disclosed until today because the company wanted to be "100% sure that each component within our infrastructure is secure."

A senior security researcher we spoke to who reviewed the statement and other evidence of the breach, but asked not to be named as they work for a company that requires authorization to speak to the press, called these findings "troubling."

"While this is unconfirmed and we await further forensic evidence, this is an indication of a full remote compromise of this provider's systems," the security researcher said. "That should be deeply concerning to anyone who uses or promotes these particular services."

NordVPN said "no other server on our network has been affected."

But the security researcher warned that NordVPN was ignoring the larger issue of the attacker's possible access across the network. "Your car was just stolen and taken on a joy ride and you're quibbling about which buttons were pushed on the radio?" the researcher said.

[...]

It's also believed several other VPN providers may have been breached around the same time. Similar records posted online - and seen by TechCrunch - suggest that TorGuard and VikingVPN may have also been compromised.

What Nord should have done is immediately cease service until the scope of the breach could be determined and the security hole patched instead of continuing to potentially compromise the security and privacy of all of its customers.
