On Tuesday, Feb. 20, the Deschutes County Republican Party is hosting an event called, “Understanding the Threat” at the Bend Senior Center designed to help put global and domestic terrorist attacks into perspective and will “identify specific jihadi threats in the United States.”
The keynote speaker is John Guandolo, an ex-FBI agent who resigned from the bureau after a number of ethical breaches and bizarre conduct, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
According to the DCRP’s invitation, Guandolo was recruited by the Department of Defense out of the FBI to conduct strategic analysis of the Islamic threat. His presentation is supposed to be presented for law enforcement officials, but according to the SPLC, Guandolo punched Hennepin County Sheriff Richard Stanek at the National Sheriff Association convention in June of 2017. The altercation got Guandolo arrested and he subsequently lost his NSA endorsement and has resorted to doing presentations for anti-Muslim groups instead of law enforcement.
