Purging Nature? Google Chrome To Block Sites

This is from InfoWars / Alex Jones. I’ve not had any of his stuff be “exactly wrong”, but he does sometimes indulge in hyperbole and “punching things up”. That said, if this is even remotely true, that Chrome will be choosing to block sites even if you found them via something other than Google Search, then that’s a problem. It does look like it is configurable, though.

I occasionally use a Chromium browser to post things. That’s the open source version of the browser on Linux. One also hopes that it can be made in a “censorship free” version when the time comes. (I’m use it since Google / YouTube have started using libraries / code that causes FireFox to have “issues” some times with things like getting the “embed link” popup to work.) In the longer term I’d like a completely different browser from either of them (Brave has been nice on the tablet…) but options on ARM Linux are limited.

(Natural News) By late 2020, Google’s Chrome browser will automatically block all so-called anti-cancer, “anti-vax” and anti-GMO websites as part of Google’s collapse into a Monsanto/Pharma criminal cartel. Users who want to visit websites that expose the scientifically-validated risks and potential harm of vaccines, chemotherapy, glyphosate or GMOs will have to switch to alternative browsers and search engines, since the Google.com search engine is already in the process of eliminating all such websites from its search results.

Within a year or so, the Google Chrome browser won’t even allow a user to visit sites like NaturalNews.com without changing the browser’s default settings. The only websites accessible through Chrome will be those which are “approved” to promote mass medication, chemotherapy, pesticides, vaccines, fluoride, 5G cell towers and other poisons that enrich powerful, globalist corporations while dumbing down the population.

This is the conclusion from a high-level source that told Natural News months ago about the coming purge of organics and natural health websites from Google — a purge that accelerated last week with the removal of Mercola.com and thousands of other natural health sites from Google search results.
[…]
Google will also penalize all websites that promote Donald Trump, Christianity or conservatism

The censorship of the tech giants won’t stop at natural health information, of course. Natural News has also learned that Google’s algorithms are being aggressively modified to penalize or block all websites that promote Donald Trump, Christianity or conservatism. This is being done at the browser level, where Chrome browsers will remotely download lists of websites to block or penalize.

The Chrome browser may either display a warning message when a user attempts to access one of the sites (i.e. “Warning: This site contains dangerous information,” etc.) or the browser may completely block the website, requiring the user to manually bypass the blocking in order to access the site.

In essence, websites that promote nutrition, natural health, herbal medicine or the healing arts will be categorized by Google as “malicious content” sites, similar to sites that contain hacking scripts or malware. This is all being put into place at the highest levels of Google and will affect all Google products, including YouTube, Google News and others.

Google to monitor users who attempt to access “banned” websites

According to our source, Google’s Chrome browser will also report back to Google when a logged in users attempts to access one of these sites, adding a “social penalty score” to that user, mirroring communist China’s social credit scoring system. This social scoring system will be later used by Google to deny services to users who are considered “untrustworthy” by Google.

Google Chrome is already well-documented to be “surveillance software” that spies on its own users. As published on EvilGoogle.news:

The only device I have that runs actual Chrome is an HP Chromebox I bought about 8? years ago. My laptop died when I was “on the road” and I needed some basic internet connectivity from where I was living at the time. It was cheap… It also has the ability to be converted to a regular Linux distribution. I’ve been thinking of doing that for years, but not gotten to it yet. As it is now also reaching the end of software support (or may be past it…) I guess it is about time.

As it stands, it makes a decent media center. That’s all I use it for now. I have no “Google Docs” on it, nor anything else, really. Browser with some links saved. Play videos to the TV. I can likely swap in the Raspberry Pi Kodi box for it. Then there wouldn’t be any reason for me to care about blowing away the Chrome OS / Browser…

It does simplify one decision for me though. I’d been thinking of getting a Chromebook as an on the road laptop. Again, because it is cheap. That’s now off the table. I’d rather get some used POS that I can convert to linux and not have to deal with all the “Google Issues”…

So, in summary, it is looking ever more like “Google & Chrome: Just say NO!”.

    I am using Gab’s Dissenter browser, https://dissenter.com/
    Version 0.65.121 Chromium: 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) a fork on Brave. Its on a used HP laptop running ubuntu 18.04. Seems fine, but I do not use youtube. Goolag is Evil.

  2. Ossqss says:

    I am going to try duckduckgo for android browser later. Anyone tried it?

  3. Taz says:

    Does this stuff ever end?

    I wish someone would identify these zealots inside Google so that some reporter could visit their mother. During the course of telling her what her offspring REALLY did, there’s no telling what kind of embarrassing information might leak from Mom.

  4. Bill in Oz says:

    Whenever some mob get great power, it will always use that power for control & dominance.

    I’ve been prejudiced against GOGGLE for a years because of this reason..

    And use Dissenter as my brouser & DDG for searching…

    All good !

    Nice to be warned about what these BADDIES are up to.

    Google knows no real history, especially the bit when the USA broke up the robber baron cartels. They cannot now claim to be a neutral service provider and becoming a purveyor for propaganda that your government (and other governments) doesn’t like is the fastest way to find yourself in trouble.
    What is to stop any government “fighting climate change” to raise charges for the electricity they use? As a starter.

  6. jim2 says:

    The scary thing is the government was best buddies with the robber barons much of the time. Think the TLAs and the big internet companies. They even tried to get their own man elected president.

    @Ossqss – Yes. Works fine

  8. Chris in Calgary says:

    @Ossqss : I’ve used it for more than a year. It works well but has only basic functionality in some areas. Give it a try.

    @EM Smith: That article looks fishy even at a glance. Now it’s possible that it’s true, but very few specifics are given about the source. How do we know it isn’t mostly made up?

    Sure I’m concerned that censorship is being imposed by Google. But they’ve never tended to block things so overtly as that article suggests. They don’t need to, really, since algorithmic adjustments seem to do the job for them.

    What information I can find on Natural News and InfoWars indicates that they’re unreliable sources of information at best, and lizard-like scammers at worst. That doesn’t mean we should take away their freedom of speech, or that their opponents are much better. But to take them seriously, I require a higher level of proof from a source that has demonstrated credibility. This despite the lack of credible sources in all sectors, these days. :(

    It seems simple enough to test these companies. Those of us with multiple platforms can do a simple compare of results on each platform and different browsers on those platforms. I suspect that the political censorship will kick into overdrive around June next year. It may also help to have some platforms logged in as a different user over a VPN so your IP / service provider cannot be checked.

  10. Bill in Oz says:

    Slightly off topic : I use Dissenter as my brouser. OK But whenever I open it I get a completely USA news feed – often reflecting very MSM.
    Is there a way to re-configure Dissenter so it has an Australian perspective or even dare i say it, a more international perspective ?

  11. E.M.Smith says:

    @Taz:

    The most important “zealots” are in the executive suite… they hired the rest.

    @OssQss:

    I use DuckDuckGo EVERYWHERE and on every combination of OS / Browser / Hardware that I’ve got and it works fine in all of them. (As a web browser based page it ought to anyway).
    That includes various x86 things, AMD CPUs, ARM in a dozen variations

    Running Windows, Armbian, Debian, Ubuntu, Devuan, Raspbian, ChromOS, Android and a few more

    With browsers from the list: FireFox, Chromium, Chrome, Brave, Pale Moon, “Internet” (Hey, that’s what it is called on the tablet), SeaMonkey, IceCat and a few more I can’t remember ’cause I just click the icons ;-)

    @Chris In Calgary:

    Why I run “odd” systems: It gives me an experience base with them.

    So I have a Chrome system running the Chrome browser. It DOES in fact put up that “this is an unsafe site” message. It DOES put it up for sties that are not buggered and trying to hack me, but just politically incorrect. All that mechanism exists already in my old and out of date version of Chrome. So that Google might be extending the (already existing and in use) database of “This Site Is Evil” to include Yet More Trendy Lefty things does not raise much of a suspicion for me.

    Yes, it does deserve a “test” for veracity, and no, I’m not saying this is God’s Own Truth; but it certainly IS a marker for “Here there be Dragons, maybe, Dig Here!”.

    There is also, at least here in the USA, a bit of a media “push” to make vaccination a mandate. In California, you can’t get your kids in school without them. Period. This being pushed by a very left wing government. There is also a push to denigrate that who do not trust vaccinations. So it is right in line with The Approved Dogma.

    (NOTE: I am NOT anti-vaccination. My kids and grandkid got all their shots. I DO think it is important to recognize that if you do not control your own body you are nothing but a slave to those who do, and I DO think that individual choice ought to be paramount. Be it for religious reasons, or for “irrational” fear of vaccine induced autism or TPTB deciding to sneak in a sterility vaccination. Why? Because it is important to recognize minority rights (for ANY minority), and it is important to have outlier groups just in case the main line group does something really really stupid and wipes itself out.)

    There is a push from the Loony Side Of Left to abolish religion and that includes any religious exemption from What They Think Is Right. So this fits right into their agenda. In other words, I’d put it into the “Most likely true until shown not” side of things.

    Could it be a bit of trolling or smear campaign? Sure. BUT: With the mechanism already in Chrome and the topic fitting their agendas, the odds are the other way.

    @Ian W:

    On my ToDo list is pick up a VPN. Just have not had the time to properly search for who are the good ones… But yeah, need that…

    @Bill In Oz:

    Don’t know about Dissenter (as it doesn’t run on any of my gear) but it ought to be related to your “locale” setting. Either in the OS or in the browser itself.

    I’m also unfamiliar with the “news feed” feature. Is that a Dissenter built in, or are you saying “when you search for news”? If it is searches, then your search engine is likely the issue.

  12. Bill in Oz says:

    E M Whenever I ‘open’ Dissenter I have a blank page which is full of News head lines and they are all USA stories from the US MSN.
    Any searches are with DDG and that US focussed aspect disappear with DDG..

  13. Larry Ledwick says:

    Bill – you might want to comment here with a request to add a localization feature for the news feed.

    Thanks Larry !
    I will do that.

  15. Bill in Oz says:

    UMMMM tried that. Got nowhere.
    Asked to provide my email address & password in order to make a comment.. Well I do not make a habit of remembering passwords in such situations. I had to go to the forgotten password route. And when I tried that nothing happened.. at all..

    Are they still in business ?

    RE aircrete – you can build your own foam generator. Apparently, by one method you just add foam to a bucket containing the freshly mixed concrete, then stir. There are a lot of videos about DIY projects on youtube for this.

    Amen to that. I will vote for anyone who sincerely advocates this position. It’s the baseline for a free society. And sadly, society is becoming less free all the time.

    As for “in case the main line group does something really stupid and wipes itself out”: recall what Einstein said:

    Only two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.

    My current “favourite” for the really stupid thing is geoengineered cooling in the face of a naturally-occurring Little Ice Age. But anything to do with the abuse of CRISPR has to be a close second.

  18. E.M.Smith says:

    CRISPR is a huge improvement over the prior brute force (and stupid) ways of going genetic modification. It removes most of my concerns about the sloppy way genes were inserted in other GMO techniques. However…

    It puts way too much power in the hands of global “leadership” who have shown themselves to be highly prone to self dealing, nefarious acts, and evil intent.
