You can stop using Google Custom Search and Disqus, of course.  As for Google, 
the freedom-friendly replacement is rather straightforward, as Google _does_ 
allow you to embed their normal search (which, as you know, works well with no 
any client-side programs), if you know the magic option.  MWE:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>No-JS Google search for our site</title>
    <form action=""; method="get"
        <input type="hidden"
               name="igu" value="1"> <!-- The magic option -->
        <input type="hidden"
               name="gbv" value="1"> <!-- Freedom-friendly version -->
        <input type="hidden"
               name="newwindow" value="1"> <!-- Open links in a new window -->
        <input type="hidden"
               name="hl" value="tr"> <!-- Interface language -->
        <input type="hidden"
               name="q" value="">
        <input type="search" name="q">
        <input type="submit" value="Search">
    <iframe name="search-results"
            sandbox="allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox">
As for Disqus, I am not aware of any direct replacement.  The approach itself, 
that is placing the initial post of the thread on your own website, while 
outsourcing replies to it to some third-party network, actually, looks dubious 
to me.
