Kevin Freeman

Economic War Room is a right-leaning digital media and weekly broadcast by Kevin Freeman that focuses on financial news, geopolitical matters, and investment news. [1] The outlet warns of “financial warfare” against the United States by Russia, China, and other adversaries. It also raised questions about the legitimacy of the 2020 election and helped sponsor a website that made claims that Joe Biden fraudulently defeated Donald Trump in the election that were not backed up by sufficient evidence.

Background

Economic War Room is a right-leaning digital media and weekly broadcast by Kevin Freeman that focuses on financial news, geopolitical matters, and investment news. [4] Economic War Room claims that Freeman is “one of the world’s leading experts on the issues of economic warfare and financial terrorism.” [5]

Freeman and the Economic War Room website contend free markets and American sovereignty are under threat because of “financial warfare” from America’s enemies such as Russia and China through the creation of new currency and from cyber warfare. [6]

Economic War Room also raises concerns about the escalating national debt, increased money printing, food stamps, rising health insurance costs, and flat wages. The program blames Wall Street, “globalist institutions,” political corruption, and corporate influence for many of the problems. [7]

The program says its “goal is to shine the light of truth,” and says the American experiment was “abandoned in the midst of success.” [8]

2020 Election Dispute

Freeman called the 2020 election “one of the most contested elections in history.” He added, “The left is out for blood and total victory.” Freeman had predicted an insurrection by the far Left. He also said the left wanted to tear down God and family and install a “nanny state.” [9]

Economic War Room was among the sponsors of the website EveryLegalVote.com, which claimed without effective substantiation that Joe Biden only beat Donald Trump in the 2020 election because of voter fraud. The other sponsors for EveryLegalVote.com were Allied Security Operations Group and Liberty Center for God and Country. [10]
