UTT is Taking the Fight to the Enemy

Because of the nature of the war being waged by the Islamic & Marxist Counter-States, Understanding the Threat (UTT) firmly believes this war will be won at the local level by citizens who understand the threat and understand the strategy to defeat the threat.

UTT is the only organization in America empowering: (1) Police with investigative strategies to proactively identify jihadis, map out local jihadi networks, and take these networks down using the full force of the law; (2) Citizens with tools to map out the jihadi networks in their communities, and actions to take to engage local leaders in order to render the jihadis and their network ineffective; and (3) State/local leaders with strategies to dismantle the Islamic & Marxist Counter-States.

Since 9/11/01, the federal government and the U.S. security apparatus has failed to fulfill its most basic duty – to secure the safety and liberties of the American people. Because the civil government and U.S. military leaders failed to identify the enemy based on U.S. war-fighting doctrine, the enemy’s strategy is succeeding.

Here are a few examples of the federal government’s catastrophic failure as a result of its refusal to know the enemy:

  1.  The United States lost the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq despite the fact our military boldly crushed Al Qaeda and other jihadi groups on the battlefield.
  2. In 2005, the U.S. Department of State wrote the constitutions for Iraq & Afghanistan creating Islamic States under sharia, thus achieving Al Qaeda’s stated goals there.
  3. Out of the four (4) leaders in the world keeping the Muslim Brotherhood and sunni jihadi organizations at bay – (Iraq – Saddam Hussein; Libya – Muammar Gaddafi; Egypt – Hosni Mubarak; Syria – Bashar al Assad) – the United States killed two (Hussein and Gaddafi), worked with the Muslim Brotherhood to remove one from power (Mubarak), and is working to remove another one right now (Assad). The Muslim Brotherhood calls this “civilization jihad” by OUR hands. They get our leaders to do their bidding for them.
  4. U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies are focused solely on violent actions by “extremists” while our enemy unequivocally identifies itself as “muslims waging jihadi to establish an Islamic State under sharia,” and operates primarily in the non-violent warfare realm.
  5. The man who was the senior Islamic advisor to President Clinton and in the White House more than any other muslim during the Clinton administration, created the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Department of Defense, and was a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. Department of State (Abdurahman Alamoudi), turned out to be a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and financier for Al Qaeda who was involved in a plot with Al Qaeda operatives to kill Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah who became the Saudi King. Alamoudi is in federal prison.
  6. The U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s internal documents identify the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) as a “member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood” and a “nucleus” for the Islamic Movement which directly funds the designated Foreign Terrorist Organization Hamas. ISNA’s former President Mohamed Magid: (1) served on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committee and held a secret clearance; (2) was given an award by the Special Agent in Charge for Counterterrorism and the Assistant Director of the FBI’s Washington Field Office in 2005; (3) worked closely with President Obama’s administration; (4) was given the FBI Director’s Award in 2016 by FBI Director James Comey; and was publicly praised at Magid’s mosque by the Deputy National Security Advisor the President Denis McDonough.

After being recruited out of the FBI by the Department of Defense at the end of 2008, UTT President John Guandolo briefed: numerous members of Congress – including the Chairmen of the Homeland Security, Intelligence, and Judiciary committees; several three and four star generals/admirals; former Directors of the FBI, CIA, and DIA as well as one former National Security Advisor; and a number of other government officials. None of these people were aware of the information presented at the time they were briefed.

In fact, a letter signed by a former CIA Director, former DIA Director, Inspector General for the Department of Defense, and the former Deputy Under Secretary for Defense reads, in part:

“We want to strongly encourage you to host a National Security Presentation by Understanding the Threat (UTT), including the 3-day “Understanding and Investigating the Jihadi Threat” program. While all four of us were in senior positions in the U.S. Intelligence Community and should have been aware of this information – we were not. We first heard this critical information from the primary presenter. The information is of utmost importance to the security of the United States, is critical to formulating National Security Strategies, and is vitally important to local and state law enforcement and intelligence professionals. The primary presenter, John Guandolo is a national treasure. He is courageously crisscrossing America sounding the alarm about the realities of the most significant threat to the nation today…Every citizen in this country should hear what he has to say. The facts he presents speak for themselves and require no commentary. For local and state law enforcement and intelligence officials, this information is critical to identifying, understanding, and thwarting threats in your locale. UTT gives specific details on how to practically implement this information in your area, which directly affects your community and your families.”

The full letter can be read here.

These leaders recommend Understanding the Threat (UTT) because UTT has a proven record of success. Here are just a few examples:

  1. UTT’s President John Guandolo worked with Senator Jeff Sessions prior to the 2016 election and provided Mr. Sessions information identifying a man working inside Mr. Trump’s campaign as a jihadi. Because of this information and UTT’s efforts, that jihadi was removed from the Trump camp, and a second jihadi was prevented from getting in.
  2. Attendees of UTT training programs – including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents/officers – report to UTT at the end of training courses they (1) were NOT aware of the information prior to the program, yet (2) the information is “critical” for protecting their communities.
  3. According to prosecutors and law enforcement officials in Arizona and Louisiana, two cases involving jihadis were initiated and prosecuted as a direct result of UTT’s training and consultation in the last two months (mid-January to mid-March 2019). Additionally, UTT’s training/consulting are responsible for an Al Qaeda operative being located, the prevention of new jihadi organizations being established, and a greater awareness of the Islamic threat throughout the United States.

How is UTT’s success possible?

By knowing the doctrine driving the enemy – sharia (Islamic Law) – and by understanding the Islamic network in the United States, their modus operandi, how they communicate their intentions, and how they interact with their Marxist collaborators, professionals can conduct predictive analysis and understand real-world events in ways nobody else can.

It is like watching a 3-D movie without the glasses, and then having UTT hand you a pair of glasses.

UTT educates many Americans and shares this critical information through many avenues. UTT publishes two (2) articles a week, provides a significant amount of free resources on our Research & Resources page of our website, produces a weekly 30-minute radio show, produces a high-quality TV show aired at WVWTV.com, has 6 DVD’s related to this threat available at the UTT online store, the book Raising a Jihadi Generation, and an upcoming book It’s All About Sharia.

However, nefarious efforts by organizations inside the Marxist Counter-State impact UTT’s ability to continue its investigations and operations. These hostile groups include the traditional media, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the ACLU, Hamas terrorists doing business as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and others.

In August 2014, 75 jihadi and Marxist organizations sent a letter to President Obama’s Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Advisor, Lisa Monaco, calling for the administration to silence UTT President John Guandolo and shut down UTT’s training programs.

The enemy knows how effective UTT is.

UTT is also the target of lawsuits meant to drain UTT of its precious resources.

Members of Understanding the Threat’s team and their families are regularly threatened with physical violence in hopes UTT will, out of fear, stop speaking truth and defending liberty. We will not.

  1. […] UTT (Understanding theThreat) is Taking the Fight to the Enemy U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies are focused solely on violent actions by “extremists” while our enemy unequivocally identifies itself as “muslims waging jihadi to establish an Islamic State under sharia,” and operates primarily in the non-violent warfare realm. https://www.understandingthethreat.com/utt-taking-the-fight-to-the-enemy/ […]


    Inasmuch as the 1934 opening of Islam’s first Mosque on American soil coincided with the 1935 dawning of J. Edgar Hoover’s 37 year tenure as Director of the FBI, it may be fruitful for UTTs intelligence team to conduct a juxtaposed analysis of the strategic & tactical similarities which may exist between sharia-adherent jihadists and the communists Director Hoover exclusively addressed in his revelatory book “Masters of Deceit”, perhaps to avoid offending the religious sensitivities of the time, while nonetheless concerned about Islam’s move west.

    And had it not been for zero tolerance which prevailed in America during the “Cold War” ’50s, e.g. for even insinuating that the 1st Amendments prohibition respecting the “FREE EXERCISE” (as opposed to the practice) of a religion was unwise in the context of national security — which it is, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, I find it hard to accept that the most instinct-gifted law enforcement official on the planet at the time was oblivious to Islam’s vanguard in the American heartland, thus, though seemingly focused exclusively on Marxists, had a book on Islam’s warring* proclivities as well.

    *Anyone unfamiliar with Islam’s draconian plan for world dominance who hasn’t yet explored its declaration of war on the Western civilization grouping of victims (including the children), which in 2004 was seized in accordance with a federal search warrant from a subterranean basement in Annandale, Virginia by special agents of the FBI, may order a personal Arabic-to-English verbatim translated copy of the original document by contacting http://www.securefreedom.org to request (for a nominal handling & postage fee): GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G U.S. v.

      I agree with you and also get rid of the Muslim brotherhood and its ilks: cair, isna msa etc…

  3. No expert, however reading the text of the Quran, Sharia law, it confirmed to me the dangers of the unseen attempt at sedition. The boxes of documents from the HLF trial should have prevented it, but Obama was elected. Recently I read an article about the PSD-11 document that apparently Obama authorized that aligned our foreign policy with the Muslim Brotherhood, pretending and misleading that it is just moderate Islam. The Memorandum of the Strategic Goals for North America, hidden from sight, while Saudi Arabia funds the multiple building of mosques. as the
    open borders and ports allow many to arrive at all entries. The 9/11 Commission Report.1st edition was quite accurate, but in the end, removed at the request of the believers with influence, the flowery books to follow were not so truthful. witnessing the freedom of speech is under siege, and seeing the power and influence of organizations a foreign doctrine is using foreign law to criminalize and distort language, I hope that the Presidential pen makes another heroic move and; stops the induction of the United States into the OIC and bans sharia law from the United States to stop the insidious move to replace the Constitution. The left has a fantasy and they will realize it too late. The moderates never last.
    This is my opinion…many places are not thrilled when it arrives but they consider it is their world to inhabit.
