America is Losing the War & Doesn't Even Know It,” by John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz
Understanding the Threat's (UTT) presenters, John Guandolo & Chris Gaubatz, will discuss the Global Islamic Movement, what they seek to accomplish, their US network, what is driving them, and how they have moved to the point of victory while US leaders remain catastrophically clueless.
Details of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, their doctrine (sharia), modus operandi, and how they have penetrated our American system at the local, state, and national level will be revealed and put into context of current events.
Why do the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, and all of the Islamic jihadis do what they do? THEY say it is to establish an Islamic State (caliphate) under Islamic Law (sharia).
What is the stated purpose of Islam? To establish an Islamic State (caliphate) under Islamic Law (sharia).
UTT is the only organization in America giving citizens, law enforcement, and leaders tools to identify, map out, and dismantle the jihadi network in communities all over the nation. UTT leadership has accurately assessed and predicted events that no one else in the nation accurately assessed and predicted because we assess threats based on the professional standard of evaluating the threat based on how the enemy identifies itself and why the enemy states it is fighting.

As the son of a career Air Force OSI Special Agent, Chris Gaubatz grew up in England, Korea, California, and Utah, and today calls southwest Virginia home. Chris worked for several Fortune 500 companies conducting fraud investigations and asset protection, as well as insurance sales.
In 2007, Chris began researching the threat of jihadi organizations in the United States by posing as a Muslim convert and attending Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas conferences gaining access as an intern with the Hamas organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Virginia.
While working at the CAIR MD/VA office, Chris uncovered a fraud scheme being perpetrated by CAIR’s “immigration attorney” who was defrauding Muslims in the community and lying about handling their immigration proceedings. In fact, he was not even a licensed attorney.
When that office was shut down by CAIR in an effort to conceal this criminal activity, Chris was invited by Hamas/CAIR leaders to work at their headquarters office in Washington, D.C.
During his time there, Chris obtained over 12,000 pages of documents from Hamas/CAIR and over 300 hours of covert audio/video recordings. The entire story is featured in the book Muslim Mafia authored by investigative journalist Paul Sperry and Dave Gaubatz (Chris’ Father).
