Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld is the Founder and President of the New York-based American Center for Democracy and the Economic Warfare Institute. Dr. Ehrenfeld's multidisciplinary approach encompasses economic warfare and Weapons of Mass Effect (WME), including disinformation, free speech, indoctrination, propaganda, PC coercion, lawfare, corruption, money laundering, Political Islam, terrorist financing, Narco-Terrorism, the links between global criminal and radical networks and Jihadi/terrorist groups. Dr. Ehrenfeld focuses on identifying patterns of seemingly unrelated domestic and foreign events as they link to threaten the U.S. political, social, and economic stability and its financial system and other matters related to U.S. and Western democracies' security.
Dr. Ehrenfeld successfully challenged a lawsuit launched by a Saudi financier of al Qaeda in the UK as a weapon to silence her and others from exposing him and his ilk. Dr. Ehrenfeld's initiative and efforts led to the passage of New York State's anti-libel tourism, aka "Rachel's Law, " and the SPEECH Act, signed into law by President Obama in August 2010. These laws protect American writers and publishers in print and on the Internet from the enforcement of foreign libel judgments in the US.
