Team Kimberlin Post of the Day

Over the past decade, there were times when there were nearly two dozen Kimberlin-related web domains in operation. While The Dread Deadbeat Publisher Kimberlin still has a few going, most have failed. The TKPOTD from two years ago today announce one of those failures.

One of the wacko moonbat causes Brett Kimberlin has tried to promote on the Internet is the campaign against GMO food. He had a website called citizensagainstgmo dot com. I say “had” because he allowed the registration to lapse earlier this summer after not having posted anything new on the site for several years.

The domain has been reregistered by a Chinese company. Don’t go there even if you have extremely robust antivirus protection. The thumb drive containing the OS I used to take this screenshot has been destroyed rather than risk using again.Another one bites the dust.

That wasn’t my only post about citizensagainstgmo dot com. The first was Brett Kimberlin and Vitamin A Deficiency.

One of the most promising genetically engineered crops that has become available over the past decade or so is golden rice. It has been modified to produce beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A. This is an important innovation for the third world where where vitamin A deficiency kills upwards of 600,000 children under 5 each year.

It is also a major bête noire of the anti-GMO food crowd.

Take a look at this:citizensagainstgmoThis is a page from the website citizensagainstgmo dot com. It lists golden rice as number 5 among the top 10 GMO food products.

This site is hosted on the same server as the sites for Justice Through Music Project, Velvet Revolution US, Breitbart Unmasked, NRAWatch, Pussy Riot Defense Fund, and other Kimberlin-related sites.

Why does these people hate poor children living in the third world?

  1. Rather than destroy the thumbdrive, which costs money, you could run a throwaway OS install in a virtual machine, such as Virtualbox which is free (and open-source). Then to destroy the OS after visiting that site, all you have to do is delete the virtual hard disk file and whatever viruses the site managed to install would be completely nuked. (If you’re feeling paranoid, you could overwrite the hard disk file with random data before deleting it, so that copies of the virus data don’t remain in spare sectors of your host OS’s disk).

    Personally, as a professional software guy, I’d feel absolutely fine using a virtual OS for this purpose. E.g., if I was emailed a file that I felt sure contained a virus, I’d feel totally safe installing it on a virtual machine, because it couldn’t do anything to the host machine. (Of course, if I turned on file sharing on the VM and then copied files from it to my host machine, I’d have only myself to blame for the virus escaping containment. But file sharing in either direction, from host to virtual machine and from VM to host, is turned off by default and you have to specifically enable it if you want it.)

    Of course, with thumb drives being so cheap, you’re not throwing much money away doing things like that. But my thought is, why waste even a $5 thumb drive when you can achieve the same results by spending no money at all?

  2. Using an OS on a thumb drive rather than a VM allows a permanent snapshot of an investigation to be archived. I didn’t want to keep that record in this case.
