It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Security is all about balance, most of the techniques you mentioned provide pretty decent anonymity, but there are also counters to a lot of them if someone is specifically trying to find you. Misbehaving TOR end nodes can give away some information, a botnet may be traced back to the command and control, no logs make it more difficult to tell after the fact, but have no impact on a live connection and logs and timing may allow a lack of logs to be worked around.
Almost nothing is perfect when it comes to anonymity on the Internet, but practically many things are pretty good. Ultimately, jurisdictional boundaries are the biggest anonymizer as it is unlikely that an ISP in the US is going to cooperate if North Korea asks them who was relaying off of one of their routers.
