Our Speaker – Chris Gaubatz of Understanding the Threat
Chris Gaubatz is Vice President of Understanding the Threat.com, an organization dedicated to providing 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.
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).
Our next meeting will be on Saturday, November 16 at the Looking Glass Restaurant at 329 Warfield Blvd. Dutch treat breakfast will be at 9:30 am, with the business meeting to start at 10:00.
If you plan to eat breakfast you must RSVP to Karel Lea Biggs via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text (931-217-4018) by noon on Wednesday prior to the meeting. (Text is best, just be sure to tell me who you are in case I don’t recognize the number)
A few thingso know:
In order to streamline the process, this is how breakfast works:
- You will prepay for your breakfast. Just go to the cash register and pay for what you want, then just show your receipt.
- This eliminates Joseph having to run around to get out all the tickets. It also means that if you have to eat and run, you’ve paid and can go when you want – no waiting around for your ticket.
Hopefully this will make it easier on everyone!
