Newsweek Hit Piece Means UTT is Right Over the Target

Written by John D. Guandolo

Yesterday (12/19/19), Newsweek published a hit piece on me (John Guandolo) referencing a comment I made on the UTT Radio Show on December 9th calling for retaliation against Saudi Arabia for being the center of the global jihad against the West.

It should be no surprise to UTT followers that Newsweek misrepresented the comments, lied about my departure from the FBI, and even failed to mention the evidence presented on UTT’s Radio Show that the government of Saudi Arabia was involved in directly supporting the terrorists who conducted the 9/11 attacks and is the center of the global jihad.

Like a large number of “journalists” today, the article’s author, Aila Slisco, is a hard-left writer whose animus for America’s founding principles and President Trump is evident in her writings and her social media posts.

Hardly impartial.

In order to win this war, we must know and understand how jihadi doctrine – sharia – defines Islam’s defeat mechanisms in this war.

“Allah’s divine law”/sharia mandates jihad be waged against the non-muslim world when the muslim community (ummah) has the strength and ability to do so.

The only way to get the global Islamic Movement to cease the jihad is to utterly crush their ability to operate along all of their lines of operation, forcing them to recognize their defeat.

This is not dissimilar to what the West did to the Islamic armies on September 11th and 12th, 1683 at the Gates of Vienna, when they handed them a brutal and crushing defeat.

In light of the totality of the evidence and understanding the enemy’s defeat mechanisms per their doctrine, it is reasonable to respond to Saudi Arabia the same way the U.S. responds to Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, other jihadi groups, and foreign nations waging war against us.

Victory for the United States and the West cannot and will not come through merely taking political actions, prosecuting “violent extremists,” making empty threats, or even engaging in military conflicts if the objective is not the utter defeat of the entire Islamic Movement through bold actions.

To suggest, as I did on the UTT Radio Show on December 9th, that a strike at the center of the Islamic world – Mecca, Saudi Arabia – is one of a number of actions that would begin to inflict the kind of damage to our enemy that is needed to force them to stop waging jihad, is reasonable when a person fully understands of the threats facing America today.

So why the attack by Newsweek now on UTT and John Guandolo?

It is the same reason Hamas doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and other enemies of freedom attack me, UTT and our work.

The answer is also the same given by Richard Stanek, the former sheriff of Hennepin County Minnesota (Minneapolis), under oath during the civil trial (September 2019) he brought forward against me and our parent company: to silence me and shut UTT down.

Why do the Islamic and Marxist Counter-States want to silence me and shut down UTT?

Here is why…Understanding the Threat is remarkably effective in taking the fight to the enemy.

UTT’s training and consultation resulted in jihadis being removed from President Trump’s camp before his inauguration.

UTT’s training and consultation is responsible for thousands of police officers, first responders, military personnel and others being given critical information about the threats and tools to deal with these threats.

UTT’s training and consultation resulted in numerous investigations being initiated in several states at the local and state level.

UTT’s training and consultation directly resulted in jihadis being prosecuted for “Terrorism” matters in two states.

UTT’s training and consultation resulted in states getting anti-jihadi legislation passed on a number of levels.

UTT’s training and consultation has led to Muslim Brotherhood programs being shut down in the U.S.

UTT’s training and consultation continues to give citizens tools to organize and strategize to take the fight to the Marxists and jihadis at the local level.

The usual response from police, intelligence professionals, prosecutors, FBI counterterrorism agents and others to UTT’s training is always the same: they admit they have never heard the information presented, and they believe the information and the tools UTT gives them are “critical” to protecting their community at the local level.

Understanding the Threat is effective. The enemy knows it.

The enemy knows the members of our team and knows each has individually been very effective in their careers in stemming the progress of the Marxist and Islamic Movements. The enemy also knows that together, the UTT team is a force that is dangerous to the enemy and powerful for all that is good.

This is a war that is being waged primarily in the information battlespace. It is a war of propaganda, influence operations, subversion, espionage, counterintelligence, and deception.

Newsweek again demonstrated they stand on the side of America’s enemies, like nearly all of the traditional media.

This recent hit piece, just like any flak received in combat, is just another sign UTT is right over the target.

  1. John Guandolo, are you affiliated or familiar with Brigitte Gabriel founder and chairman of “Act for America?” She is also outspoken about Jihadist threat. She is from Lebannon and explains how her country, which used to be predominantly Christian, was completely taken over by Muslims killing most Christians off. Lebannon welcomed Palestinian refugees, and they soon took over the country. She is trying to warn the U. S. government and We the People that the Muslims are trying to do the same to us using the U. S. Constitution to benefit their cause to completely dominate the U. S. She elaborates in her books, “Because They Hate, They Must Be Stopped, and Rise.” .

  2. John, Hopefully you will send your article right over to Newsweek. Maybe they can do a archive search on Newsweek article titled ‘Storm Warnings’ ,with a subtitle, Bin Laden was a threat, but Clinton never pushed it and Bush seemed more interested in Saddam’ What went wrong’. Newsweek March 28, 2004. by Michael Isiskoff and Evan Thomas. Searching for a target….but if they had, if the Pentagon was interested in reasons”read or if it the lawmakers could read his writing that were collected,if theyhad read the writings of Osama bin Ladin, he clearly states it is for Islam..they fight to return it to glory. Osama was connected but disconnected partly with cash the other was to protect Islam from exposure. What you John know is considerable, considering many were tasked for finding the reason for 9/11 and the leaders disputed and stayed uninformed even as the information was being discovered and formulated into security briefs,that can still be read.The same for your work on the MB, even though there was tons of evidence, court cases, in the later years however the tradegy was the succes of deception of sharia and a admitted Muslim in office…..your work is part of the most important and revealing about the ideological and it was purged and deeply buried and Saudi’s kept sending money to influence, the mosques kept being built, and the Turkish center opens and sharia law is exposed for some funding , as Stephen says” he or the we in the informed world are being stopped.” Political climate is opening but it was a closed circuit back then sadly. There is irregular movement and a pushback to current information as hate speech. Narratives expounded by some scholars of the diversity, open borders, deception , soemwhat leftist,and complete alliance with information warfare controlled by sharia. But I see cracks. Cult of personality? Yep the one who leads millions to death…but wrote it all down. “I have been made victorious in terror.” If they knew the source they would see the problem. In my opinion. So who is the social media poster who is bizarre, who does not seem real.

  4. John,
    Keep up the good work!



    NEWSWEEK covers aren’t about demonstrable truth, they’re about pandering comic–book level drama to contextual morons at grossly inflated prices per copy; i.e., consider the feigned distress reflected in the words of said critic, then surmise what her score may have been on a quintet of entry-level questions regarding any or all of the following topics: Islam’s 22 May 1991 declaration of war* on Western civilization; the Muslim Brotherhood; sharia law; the existing number of mosques in the country; and why they’re now here; the Gulen Movement, and the number of her generational peers of both sexes who have died in mortal combat with jihadi savages thus far, in order for her to continue exercising her unalienable right to freedom of speech, and thus (alas) make a fool of herself vis-a-vis her contextual stupiidity. UTT should send she and her ilk to Coventry where they belong. For not only is silence golden, and works like a charm, it also drives the editors at NEWSWEEK straight up the wall.

    Anyone wishing to own an Arabic-to-English translated verbatim copy of Islam’s declaration of war on Western civilization of 22 May 1991, the original of which was seized in accordance with a federal search warrant by special agents of the FBI from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia USA, in 2004, need simply contact: to thence request (for a nominal handling & postage fee) GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G U,S, v. HLF, et al.

    • I was sharing the Newsweek hitpiece with a good friend who used to be in Hollywood yet is a conservative and he said “I was not aware Newsweek was still around” haha. JG
