Another 9/11 Anniversary Comes & Goes with the U.S. Domestic Jihadi Network Intact & Accelerating

Eighteen years years after September 11, 2001, the United States government has STILL not identified the enemy in the war. Government officials marked the anniversary with words and tough talk, yet the souls of the thousands of dead Americans – some killed here at home and others killed in combat overseas – cry out for […]

In Wars, Knowing the Enemy & Taking Bold Action Are Keys to Victory

Appeasement, weakness, and cowardice never won a war. Today’s republican “leaders” around the United States, from local officials to Governors to Members of Congress to the national GOP leadership have failed and refused to speak about the threat Islam poses to America and its citizens. With the exception of the President himself, republicans have chosen […]

The Elephant in the Room is the Truth About Islam

Written by Pastor Veritas Most people have heard the old Hindu parable concerning the six blind Hindu men trying to accurately perceive the nature of an elephant. Each of the men can only interpret the elephant according to their blind understanding. Each man experiences the animal by how he perceives what he feels. They sincerely […]

When Muslims Discuss “Peace” It Brings on Cognitive Dissonance in Non-Muslims

When muslim leaders in America discuss peace, and how peaceful Islam is, it launches many Americans into a swirl of cognitive dissonance. Why? Because those who follow Islam tell us Islam means “peace,” that Islam is a “peaceful religion,” and often personally exhibit peaceful characteristics. Yet, the objective truth about “Allah’s divine law”/sharia – Islam’s […]

“Human Rights” in Islam Means Slavery, Death, and Destruction

Written by Peggy Mast The American form of government – Constitutional Republic – is superior to all others, not only in its longevity, but primarily because America’s Founding Fathers understood the self-evident truth that all humans are born with unalienable rights which come from God. So America’s Founders created a federal government and a nation […]

“Freedom & Justice” in Islam Have Nothing to Do with Liberty & A Genuine Respect for People

The United States of America stands as a beacon for the world because its founders understood true equality comes from the self-evident truth that God created all humankind in his likeness and, therefore, we all have inherent value, dignity, and worth. As creations of the Creator, we all possess unalienable rights which no man nor […]

Controlling the Narrative Still Key for Islamic Counter-State

Nearly eighteen (18) years after 9/11, the United States of America and all national security and war-fighting components of the government remain catastrophically clueless as to who the enemy is, what the doctrine is driving their actions, and, therefore, how to win this war. How is it that U.S. leaders have an understanding of Islam […]

To Act Effectively Against Iran, U.S. Officials Must Understand Sharia

There is a reason Iranian officials reminded the Iranian people about Hudaybiyyah when referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – the “Iran nuclear deal.” It has everything to do with “Allah’s divine law”/sharia. Islam’s prophet Mohammad made the treaty of Hudaybiyyah with Jews which, the Jews were told, was a ten year peace […]

Islamic Infiltration: Suit-Wearing Jihadis Own the FBI

Written by UTT President John Guandolo When I arrived in Saudi Arabia in early 2002 on a trip with the FBI Director, which included approximately a dozen countries across the Middle East and beyond, I was shocked to learn that both the FBI’s Legal Attache and the Assistant Legal Attache to Saudi Arabia converted to […]
