John Guandolo is the Founder of, an organization dedicated to providing strategic and operational threat-focused consultation, education, and training for federal, state, and local leadership and agencies, and designing strategies at all levels of the community in order to defeat the jihadi threat.

John is an expert in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic doctrine, the global Islamic movement, and terrorist organizations – including Hamas and Al Qaeda. He advises governments – U.S. and others – on matters related to national security, specifically the threat from the global Islamic movement.

In 2006, Mr. Guandolo was designated a “Subject Matter Expert” by FBI Headquarters. He created and implemented the FBI’s first Counterterrorism Training Program focused on the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Doctrine, and the global Islamic Movement.

For his efforts, in 2007 Mr. Guandolo was presented the “Defender of the Homeland” Award by U.S. Senators Jon Kyl and Joseph Lieberman on behalf of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. While in the FBI, Mr. Guandolo also received two (2) United States Attorney’s Awards for Investigative Excellence.

John served as an adjunct instructor at the Joint Forces Staff College and instructed at the U.S. Army War College. He is currently a Special Deputy Sheriff in Culpeper County, Virginia.

He is co-author of Shariah – The Threat to America, the first comprehensive book on the enemy threat doctrine, and the author of Raising a Jihadi Generation (September 2013), which details the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadi support network inside the United States.  Mr. Guandolo appears on numerous news and talk shows.


We appreciate Edom Tea Party Founder and Texas Conservative Grassroots Coalition Partner – our much-loved Dr. Dwayne Collins – for his help in scheduling this speaker.
