The ALICE Program is not liked by most on the left…

No surprise there.

ALICE stands for “Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate”…

A few things to know…

Attacking any shooter directly is almost always ineffective — and deadly for the wrong person.

Two keys…

There HAS to be an element of surprise from BEHIND

The gun must be removed from their hands (you don’t need to grab the gun to knock it out of their hands)

It would be great to see the ALICE program use some of the training from Target Force Training (, which provides a weekend training course for managing yourself well even if you are outnumbered.

One of the videos on their YouTube channel provides a life-saving strategy — an attack from behind and with as much force as you can muster (your adrenaline will most likely be going so it won’t be too difficult to muster that up), deliver a blow right below the skull and on the spine with your elbow.

That will send the shooter to the floor to see stars as well as cause them to lose their grip on the armament.

As there will be several of you someone else should get the gun first and then point it at the shooter.

KEEP YOUR TRIGGER FINGER to the side of the gun until it is necessary to use deadly force.

WARNING: Get TRAINED on this — don’t rely on this post and videos to be your plan.

The information here is provided to direct you to the correct resources, not to provide a full strategy and training.

If you don’t heed this advice, you will find yourself focused on the wrong things: trying to remember this information instead of focussing on the shooter and relying on the reflexes and habits built up by the training — and could very well end up being a victim yourself.

Self-Defense Techniques Against Someone with a Gun

This 4-minute video provides 2 techniques to disarm someone with a handgun – one if no one is around, the other if there are others nearby.

No special skills are required, and it does take some practice.

The question will always remain – would you rather at the most inconvenient of times had wished you learned this technique or be happy you did?

The Palestinian Charters – Fatal Exercises in Theocracy (9/28/2022) - The Palestinian populations based in Gaza and Judea and Samaria are represented by 2 organizations, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority - and the leadership of both is constructed of antisemites, holocaust deniers, terrorists, and admirers of Hitler. Both detest each other and have killed more of Palestinians between them in internal disputes than Israel has killed in the protection of its citizens from Palestinian terrorist attacks (archive
Brainy But Cowardly (BBC) Misses the Boat Again (8/17/2022) - When any person - or organization - forsakes principles for favoritism, they have lost all focus on character, Liberty, and justice. Any wonder CJs and news blogs have been gaining an ever-growing audience while the media has been losing theirs? (archive
From Our Archive: BBC NOT Sharing An Internal Investigation (8/15/2022) - After years of complaints and pressure over the BBC's blatant bias against Israel in all aspects of programming, but more particularly News coverage, the BBC commissioned the Balen Report -- then hide it from public view.

In Spite of President Higgins, the Hope of Ireland Is In Its Grassroots Campaign (8/8/2022) - Whist Ireland's President Higgins waffled on at length about the least fortunate in global society and how Ireland was playing its part to assist those disenfranchised, like the political coward he is, he never alluded to Ireland's behaviour which has been the cause of much human misery. The Republic of Ireland has for decades hidden its dark past about domestic child abuse within State and quasi-Irish State institutions. The Church, church schools, orphanages, hospitals, work-houses, and even the Irish Boy Scouts organisations have a history of incest and grotesque child sexual abuse by those in authority.
The Palestinian Victim Card is Not Only Old, It Is Islamophobic (7/31/2022) - Historical evidence and Qur'anic teachings show that the land of Israel is promised to the Jewish people. As such, any support for the recent Palestinian claims to any part of the disputed geographical area - including Jerusalem - is Islamophobic.
Is The Claim For A Palestinian State A Political Confidence Trick? (7/18/2022) - Testing the wars, religious, and legal claims of the Palestinian base.

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

The book that was the basis of this movie can be found by clicking here.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
