New article: Non ‘Fake News’ news sources worth looking at

I wrote a new article for those seeking reputable news sources. In light of all the censorship taking place at YouTube, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc., i think it’s worthwhile compiling a list of people and organizations that publish generally trustworthy news and commentary. I say “generally” because no news source gets everything right all the time.

So please go ahead and read Non ‘Fake News’ news sources worth looking at and if you have any comments or sources you’d like added, let me know. You need not be logged in to comment.

An acoustic analysis of the 1-Oct-2017 mass-shooting in Las Vegas

The mass-shooting that occurred in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1st, 2017, was one which i was content in ignoring for the most part, not because i didn’t have sympathy for the victims, but because i already have an overall understanding of the bigger picture and how such events are often manufactured and used for political purposes. However upon discovering the video by Mike Adams of Natural News titled Forensic acoustic proof of SECOND shooter in the Las Vegas massacre, my curiosity as to the on-the-ground mechanics of the event was stimulated sufficiently enough that i decided to launch my own similar investigation with the goal of determining a), whether there were multiple shooters targeting the venue specifically and b), their locations.

My analysis of several videos captured by witnesses can be found in my article, Las Vegas Shooting 1-Oct-2017: An acoustic analysis and possibly some answers for the victims. In it, i tried to be very respectful of the witnesses and i hope to provide some possible answers that i’m sure many are seeking. There are many completely baseless accusations and theories being tossed about like so much confetti and some people are capitalizing on an event that has real human victims with complete disregard as to how the garbage they spout may further traumatize those victims.

There are certainly many unanswered questions, critical changes to the official story and timeline, and many anomalies to be investigated regarding this event. If the “Illuminati” pulled this off as a satanic ritual or whatever, fine, or if the FBI is involved in organizing and financing it, fine (i find that idea to be far less far fetched given their criminal history) however incredible assertions require the meat to back them up and it disappoints me that much of the speculation and accusations circulating on the web is of the lowest quality garbage originating from brain-dead people, including some so-called independent “investigative journalists”.

The web, as far as i’m concerned, is one of the only places left where one is going to get accurate, hard hitting news reporting, however it is also filled with plenty of garbage and knowing which is which is key. Here’s a pro-tip from an avid watcher of web news for over a decade: When an article or video title contains an exclamation mark, it may well be garbage. When it is typed in all caps it may well be garbage. When it contains anything like “100 PERCENT PROOF!” or “MUST SEE!”, or “SMOKING GUN!” or “BANNED!” or any other such click-bait sensationalist words and phrases, it is either very likely complete garbage, or it was copied from a potentially quality article or video and retitled.

Anyway, to read what i have discovered regarding the Vegas mass-shooting, please read my article and please share it. Ultimately i’d like to reach some of the victims that are being led down rabbit holes that go nowhere. They have suffered far more in 10 minutes of their lives than most of us ever will.

New tut: Firefox Search Engine Cautions and Recommendations

A new tutorial has been published titled Firefox Search Engine Cautions and Recommendations which covers the risks to your privacy when using any of the major search engines in general, but specifically when using the default search engine plugins that are packaged with the Firefox web browser, though this problem is certainly not limited to Firefox. I also cover how to circumvent the risks to your privacy when using the default Firefox search engine plugins, as well as make suggestions for alternative search engines.

I have to say that i’m becoming more and more disillusioned with the multi-million dollar Mozilla corporation and its flagship product, Firefox. Firefox was never a great web browser in my opinion, but it is/was appealing to many because of how completely customizable it is. In it’s earlier days it was just a little slow and buggy, but more recently Mozilla is making highly unethical choices with regard to the privacy-hating corporations they willingly partner with and how these partnerships have manifested and have been monetized in Firefox is a result of utter stupidity and greed in my opinion. I stuck with Firefox all these years because it has always been one of the most hackable browsers out there, but these days i stick with it primarily because i’m not (yet) able to reproduce the functionality i have added to it via add-ons with any other browser, and Chrome is out of the question, much less Google’s spyware version of it.

It’s sad and frustrating that a company who produced a decent, super-highly customizable browser for a niche market has lost its way and turned its back on the very market it once served by deciding to become a Google Chrome clone in order to appeal to the masses.

Screw you Mozilla.

But let’s end on a lighter note, shall we? Here, have a look.

NPR: National Public Or National Propaganda?

A year or two ago i did an intensive 12 hour (approx) investigation into NPR from a backend perspective. I was interested in learning more about how NPR works and who runs one of the most listened to radio programs in the U.S. Among other notable findings, i learned who provides the bulk of NPR funding. The real kicker though, is the backgrounds of some of the staff and board members.

What i learned will shock you. Read: NPR: National Public Radio Or National Propaganda Radio?
