Armed Self-Defense Is Under Attack In The U.S.A.

New York – -( Is armed self-defense a basic human right? The question may seem rhetorical, even nonsensical to a rational mind. “Of course, armed self-defense is a basic human right,” you would say. Or is it?

In the countries of the EU it isn’t; nor is armed self-defense acknowledged and accepted as a fundamental human right in the countries that comprise the British Commonwealth.

But, what about the United States? Do Americans have a right to armed self-defense?

The natural law right codified in the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights makes it plain that Americans do have a natural law right of armed self-defense. And the seminal Second Amendment holdings in Heller, McDonald, and, most recently, in Bruen explicitly assert that. So, why does that remain a question for us? But a question for us it is, disturbing as it is.

The Globalist elite puppet-masters and the Marxist internationalists do not acknowledge—in fact do not recognize—the right.

Of course, it should not matter what these creatures think. But as long as Americans vote their proxies into public office, the right of armed self-defense remains, in practice an open question in many jurisdictions across the Country, despite the clear meaning of the Second Amendment and irrefutable U.S. Supreme Court precedent.

The fact remains that in the U.S. the natural law right of armed self-defense is not to be denied, ignored, dismissed, or abrogated.

The right of armed self-defense is itself subsumed in the broader category of the right of self-defense for personal survival, by whatever means.

Armed self-defense simply means that a person has the natural law right to possess the best means for ensuring both his physical survival and his autonomy of self against those forces that dare crush body, or mind, or spirit. For centuries that best means of self-defense was a firearm. And it remains so.

Through the years, we at AQ, have written extensively on this. See e.g., the article of December 2, 2021, titled, “Tyranny, Fundamental Rights, and the Armed Citizen“. See also an article in Georgetown Journal of Law & Public Policy.

In a world moving closer and closer to Armageddon, in the form of transnational tyranny, and as CCP China and western Globalist overseers carve up the world between them, the U.S. as a free Constitutional Republic cannot long remain separate and apart from the emergence of a one-world governmental empire unless the American people assert their sovereign authority over Government. This should not be difficult but, through time, it has become so for many Americans.

Why is that? It is for these reasons:

  • Consolidation of information organs into one massive organ of propaganda, targeting the public on an industrial scale; Incessant, noxious surveillance of the masses;
  • Consolidation of federal police, military, intelligence apparatuses into one uniform command structure; Merging of Federal Executive and Legislative Branch functions; and attempts to merge the Judicial Branch into the fold as well
  • Thus, the forces that crush slowly whittle away at the integrity of the United States as an independent sovereign Nation, and slowly soften the resolve of vast swaths of the polity that would otherwise enable the polity to ably resist both the inexorable march toward tyranny and usurpation of the peoples’ sovereignty over Government.

With the aid of technology and advances in the art and science of social engineering and psychological conditioning, these forces have made vast strides in corrupting the Nation from within.

In the feudalistic nation that America is becoming, the common man—today’s serf—counts for naught.

Recall that Kyle Rittenhouse was charged with several felony counts. The most serious involved his shooting of the psychotic animal, Joseph Rosenbaum. Video evidence alone made clear beyond a reasonable doubt a case for justifiable homicide grounded on the legal right of self-defense—a perfect defense to threat against life. That occurred back in 2020.

Yet, the puppet-masters demanded Kyle’s head because Rosenbaum and others were, consciously or not, tearing down the fabric of society in furtherance of the Soros/Rothschild goal to destroy the Nation. For, once that was accomplished, the remains of the United States may be merged effortlessly and seamlessly into a greater international world order a.k.a. new world order a.k.a. the Soros “Open Society.”

Fortunately, for both Kyle Rittenhouse and for the rest of us, a jury of his peers did not buy into the moronic insult. The jury realized the right of armed self-defense for them, no less than for the man on trial, were both on trial. The incident occurred in 2020. The trial—itself a travesty—demanded by the Globalist puppet-masters—should never have taken place and would never have taken place if the rotten weeds that Soros had planted at the local and regional levels had not taken root.

More recently, an innocent man, a naturalized citizen from the Dominican Republic, Jose Alba, was immediately arrested for killing a vicious predator, a creature with a lengthy rap sheet, Austin Simon.

Alba, like Rittenhouse, had successfully defended his life against predatory attack from an unrepentant, serial criminal. For his trouble, having had the audacity to defend himself against a psychopath and surviving the vicious attack, he found himself, oddly and absurdly, on Riker’s Island, courtesy of a Soros-backed and funded prosecutor, Alvin Bragg, Manhattan District Attorney.

One must wonder: if the tables were turned, and the psychopath, Austin Simon had killed Jose Alba, would Bragg have sent Simon immediately to Rikers Island? Judging by Bragg’s performance to date, protecting predators, that likely would never have happened. See the article titled, “Self-defense is Now Murder,” in the Daily Sentinel.  See also Tucker Carlson’s news coverage and video on Fox News.

Bragg’s audacious attack on a citizen who defended himself with a knife makes patently clear the incessant assault by the legacy Press, by the Democrat Party-controlled Congress, and by the Biden Administration over “guns” isn’t really about guns at all. It is about self-defense generally—against predatory man, beast, and, most importantly, as far as the Destructors of our Nation are concerned—against predatory Government itself.

If a man has a lawful, Constitutional right to repel tyranny, that fact vindicates the right of self-defense. A tyrant can never allow for that; hence the attack on the natural law right of self-defense.

Had Alba defended his life with a firearm, rather than a knife, the Manhattan DA’s handling of the case would not have been different. But Bragg and the Press would have inserted the issue of guns into the narrative.

The aim of the Globalist push to destroy the Nation from within is insidiously directed to rendering the citizenry helpless while the Destroyers of our Nation plot and machinate to devastate the economy, mock America’s Christian faith, and promote societal decay.

Yet, total societal collapse cannot occur as long as Americans remain armed. That is our winning hand: a royal straight flush. And the would-be destroyers of a free Republic know this.

So it is that, even as the right of the people to keep and bear arms gains support through the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court, the pawns of the puppet-masters will continue to thwart the citizen’s right possess arms for self-defense.

New York Governor Hochul has made plain that she doesn’t give a damn about the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Bruen. In fact New York’s recent enactment of amendments to its concealed handgun carry license structure set forth in Penal Code Section 400.00 now makes it even more difficult to obtain a concealed handgun carry license than before the Bruen ruling.

The Governor’s defiance and that of the New York State Legislature in Albany is so blatant, so arrogant, so odious, so all-encompassing as to draw incredulity but for the fact that it is not mere rumor or extravagant musing, it is all etched in stone. And we lay all that out for you in our next few articles.

At birth, when the doctor slaps your ass, you have the right to slap him back if you can. That’s when self-defense starts, at birth.


It is the same Soros backed DA’s that let that animal Austin out. His rap sheet was long. But DA Bragg or his predecessor let this dirtbag out to prey on lawful citizens. Mr. Alba had no choice but to defend himself against the predator. He should be commended for riding society of that POS. Bragg and the idiot Governor should be sent to Rikers for their failure to uphold the law and their contempt for lawful citizens.


Unfortunately I can only upvote your comment once.


i add for you


You can make up for it by taking your downvote sock puppets offline, TEX.


Why is Soros and his mutant off-spring allowed in the United States? The elder Soros is Hungarian, though I supposed Hungary doesn’t want him.
I suspect he bought his way into the U.S. via the State Department’s little know program whereby rich foreigners are granted resident status if they bring a large amount of money into the U.S. In his case he is busy spending his money to take down America and turn it into just another third-word dump!

Wild Bill

Because he has money and uses it to support the right politicians. The Russians still have an unexecuted arrest warrant on Soros. He could be gone in an afternoon, if we wanted.


I thought that useless POS died a few months back.


Won’t make any difference. His son is just as worthless as he is!

Wild Bill

Unfortunately he is still alive and doing the devil’s work.


devil does not want him


I’m not sure but, I think it was his father Tividar Soros who set this little prick tyrant up, I think the bastard father greased the skids just like you posted. You can read and watch some of the things Tividar did for “little George” growing up you will see the generational depravity in written and video format. Satan’s disciples.

Here’s a video link with author Matt Polumbo discussing his latest book, George Soros: The Man Behind The Curtain. A definitive outline of this despicable person. Add Klaus Schwabb into the mix and you get 100% pure evil.

That was interesting! Open Societies University Network will carry on even after he is dead.

Look at it this way the media is responsible for for the information that the public perceives to be true. I know that media is never telling the whole story with just the facts for all Americans to come to a conclusion on their own. The elite media uses guest commentators to push their narrative forward mostly just a load of crap.Influencers that the media hires to progress the agenda of the socialist democratic party. The republican party continues to struggle with in its own ranks as the rhino leadership has now shown that they can not be trusted.They do… Read more »


Thank you. You make my point better than I ever could. We, especially most genuine posters here and other trusted platforms, are the truth tellers. This is why PCO’s and interested Patriots are so important in our neighborhoods. Very few people rely on the alphabet broadcast and print propagandist outlets anymore. This is good and bad too at the same time. What we must do is be the truth teller in your ⭕️ of influence. Once we meet and identify our neighborhoods of concerned neighbors, we can gently and judiciously steer their news and editorials away from the lunatic fringe.… Read more »


The media has now put us in a state of civil war. It won’t be too much longer and we will be forced into a Revolution and the tree will get it’s thirst squelched. This is what happens when education is not real. I don’t think that teaching kindergartner kids about the ‘Bird and the Bee’ is education. And why is American History not taught anymore?


Did you write this radical book or in any way earn or profit from its sale?


I am NOT condoning violence in any way. Words have meaning. The message below is an expression of what freedom means. The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of men who wanted to be left alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the men who wanted… Read more »

“I am NOT condoning violence in any way.” Then you’re not thinking clearly enough. Aggression is bad. Violence is neutral. Self-defense is violence… good violence. When Lord Dunmore confiscated the powder at Williamsburg, Patrick Henry marched on his treasurer with a group of armed men, and didn’t leave until he had cash in hand from him to replace it fully. This was what our government today would call a “terrorist” action. Subsequently, the Orange County committee published in the Virginia Gazette a resolution of support for Patrick Henry entitled “AN ENDORSEMENT OF VIOLENCE AND REPRISAL.” It was signed by chairman… Read more »


The objective of the Progressive New Left is a totalitarian America. To achieve that goal one must first lay a foundation of fear. Fear neighbors. Fear family. Fear friends. Fear government. Once that foundation is laid a society becomes self monitoring by becoming a Denunciation Nation. Denounce your neighbor to the authorities for any perceived transgression of the party line. That way the police become a clean up squad for potential dissenters and don’t need to waste time on investigations and criminal prosecutions. The simply show up when you are denounced and you disappear. That is the ideal for the… Read more »


GoFundMe decides who gets the lottery. And yet people keep using these trash sites. Just as we only accept PayPal. Is there really NO alternatives out there ? lol I won’t purchase products I would love to have just because they only accept PayPal. I will NOT support such communist.


True, had a problem with PayPal, closed my account and no longer deal with any company that onl accepts only Paypal!!!


paypal ebay amazon all same shit I want a person banks


The Useless, in their quest fir absolute power, will ruin the lives of many good people.


Good Analysis. It’s tragic that Mr. Alba was put in the situation where he had to defend himself, let alone with only a knife (hopefully the blade was less than “four inches”), and now must suffer the abuse of a corrupt and illegitimate (it is a given that voter fraud in Manhattan and NYS is out of control; and then there is soros, wef, nwo, etc.) DA. Perhaps those involved will remember in the USA the accused is “innocent until proven guilty” and that one needs “mens rea” to commit a crime. Let’s pray Mr. Alba’s actions will be recognized… Read more »

Deplorable Bill

This is why people are reluctant to even call the cops after a defensive situation. I wonder what the response time was? Were the cops called before, during or after the assault took place? The D.A. is corrupt and tyrannical and should be arrested, jailed until trial without bail in solitary confinement on Ricker’s island. That goes for the arresting cop as well. Nobody trusts the justice system and that includes me. Kill or maim a career criminal in verifiable self defense and go to jail with a half a million dollar bond???? Are we in the U.S.A. or russia… Read more »


da should be jailed with no record he exists


we need to set up a replacement for go fund me , one where money for legal defense stays in a future fund to help others …and someone needs to arrest these cops ..just doing their job bs ..da wants to arrest him he can go there himself judge needs time on rikers island too


If you have ever been to a bodega in NYC the people work behind cages and bullet proof glass just to make a living.

It is so very sad that the elected has taken to supporting the 13% of the bat shit crazy flat earthers. Mayors are the most dangerous elected politicians in office. If you learn about how hard it is to remove a Mayor from office you also learn how the democrats have protected that elected office.


in the late 70s -early 80s they just had fencing ,police were in the neighborhoods but were as prone to shakedown bulginesses as protect them, south Boston was a war zone like miami still called combat zone but now just narcotics ods the more things change the more they stay the same


Reinventing the wheel. GiveSendGo is a politically neutral (though Christian-run) site that doesn’t play the games that GoSendMe does. GSG administers funds for J6 defendants. When GFM dumped Kyle Rittenhouse, GSG picked him up. When GFM dumped the Canadian truckers, GSG picked them up. GFM threatened to confiscate or repurpose the truckers’ donations, until they got dragged on the Internet as frauds and thieves. GSG delivered the funds to Canada until they were physically/legally roadblocked, at which point they returned the remaining donations to the donors without needing to be asked.

The victim did not commit a violent crime he defended his life. You’re liberal hypocrite donations collection ideologies are transparent and shameful.

Funny how the press wants to make it look like Alba was assaulted by one attacker, when Alba was stabbed by the woman and the male continued the attack by going behind the counter after Alba. It seems like an armed, two pronged, disparity of force attack to me. I could be wrong.


The press journalism no longer supports for the truth. they work for the elite who pull the strings of the elected democratic politicians. Even with a video that shows the truth allowing for nothing but the truth is becomes twisted by the liberal judges and district attorneys.

The old saying I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by six still works for me. Democrats want to make it a crime for saving your own life !!!!!

Wild Bill

Soros … grrrr.


Kind of like the Squeegee worker (thug & extortionist) in Baltimore was just defending his life from a bat wheeling maniac (pissed off citizen in the wrong). It sure is hard to tell these days just by reading headlines.


GoFundMe quickly invented a policy interpretation saying that they would not run accounts for people “accused”(!) of violent crimes. They used it to dump Kyle Rittenhouse, while they curiously continued to run accounts for New York’s Molotov Lawyers and Pennsylvania’s progressive Sorority Arsonist.


NYS Love It Or Leave IT NYS has become a playground for criminals as democrats have issued a revolving door justice system. Crime rate in 2022 up 137% Be mindful of the two laws stand your ground and the castle doctrine NYS does not support stand your ground. For people interested in learning what is and is not allowed in New York when it comes to lethal force,any gun owner should take a safety class.  The Stand Your Ground states that there is no duty to retreat from the situation before using deadly force and is not limited to one’s home,… Read more »

not sure evil “demon” is just criminal but they have sold their souls


if the police would exercise judgment, they would have refused to arrest mr Alba let the da or judge go there alone to confront him


Pile of crap works just as well!

Most humorous!!


this is why people who can are leaving in droves


Correct which endangers those living in the 25 constitutional states as they bring along their politics.


The war against the Second Amendment, as well as the war against the very concept of personal self-defense, are all part of the effort by elites to europeanize America.


Bail? What happened to the bail reform and no bail for poor people. I am sure anyone working in this condition for 13 hours a day is not well to do!

The article is right, they want to make protecting yourself illegal. I like how they tied in Kyle to the picture showing the simularity.

Arm up, carry on and FJB. I am sick of his and all the other gun grabbers S***T giving Gabby Giffords the medal of freedom, shouldn’t Steve Scalise been standing there too?

They set aside their law as it suits them. Where is the woman that stabbed Alba?

Din Do Nuffins are on a rampage, Lol.


Incidents like this one, and the response by blue state governments who bame the victim and protect the perp, are why some states have gone to the trouble of enacting so called “stand your ground” laws.

Laws like that don’t just occur in a vacuum. They are usually triggered by a government that oversteps its bounds and ventures into foolishness.


I’m really glad this store owner and older gentleman was able to successfully defend himself against this young black man and two time convicted felon scumbag. More trash off the streets.


Good article. You do mince words. You tell it like it is. The Marxists are not our friends.
