Lions of Liberty Podcast Ep. 15: Angela Keaton of Antiwar.com

By Marc Clair

In this episode – the LAST of 2013! – of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Angela Keaton, the Director of Operations for Antiwar.com. We begin by discussing how Ms. Keaton became involved with the antiwar movement, as well as the revelation that the FBI was spying on several prominent members of Antiwar.com. We then go on to break down the top foreign policy stories of 2013. We discuss the emergence of the “Ron Paul Geeks” in the form of courageous whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning, the prevention of war with both Syria and Iran, and the “forgotten wars” of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Plus, be sure to stay tuned for a classic rant from your host and shining beacon of liberty…me!

Keeping it up

Deserves a watch...


"...small and cultish, that had far inproportionate influence in it. It has really no serious ethical basis behind it." -@17minutes

I certainly somewhat agree with some of Angela's adjectives there, but I think it's beneficial in beating back such political elements to fully recognize the historical presence of those with what is simply today referred to as Neocon. Irving Kristol wasn't a pioneer. He was a revivalist of puritanism, core yankee philosophy, mercantilism, national socialism. Anyone who's admired Hamilton, Lincoln, Roosevelt, etcetera, has been quite happily smitten by overt or even covert alignment with Neoconservatism.

The Neocons are today's cult leaders of the "American System"...

Neocon/Zionist is really just the definition of Hamiltonian

You could just call them Hamiltonians, after the very first purveyor of central government became a household name. History shows this.

Alexander Levin Hamilton was one of the most deceptive, and power grabbing globalists of the entire era. His creed, believed more central control means you will have no mistakes. He fashioned people to accept taking away more and more rights, for the benefit of greater empire. And now you know why the masses were so enamored with his perfect vision of freedom, when even Jefferson himself said Hamilton cannot be trusted.

Hamilton was in love with his own force and power, and like most unawake slaves they have no sort of idea about the roots of their beliefs. They just voluntarily do as he did, believe that the larger the power and more the force: the more society prospers due to the built-in ideal of servitude.

You are put here to serve government, not to allow government to serve you. So Alexander Hamilton won, because so many did not believe freedom can not be coerced. It can only be chosen. Thomas Jefferson and the rest of them, understood the Hamiltonian way of life was a recipe for utter chaos.

Jefferson opposed Hamilton and all the rest, vigorously, yet the Railroad company which paid Hamilton only expanded. After the exploitation of the trading with outside enemies treaty, Hamilton was finally defeated and Jefferson threw him out by re-writing everything. Hamilton's Constitution was a total deception.

yes, Hamilton was the neoCon prototype

The Neocons aren't a passing fad. They have always been here and shall probably always be. Personally I find it beneficial [especially in this day and age] to not recognize Neoconservatism by narrowing in on what it is, but to broaden one's perspective by narrowing in on what is Jeffersonian and deeming anything that falls outside of that, Neoconservative. Ron Paul sets the Jeffersonian standard of today, and most every other politician I can think of in recent history bears Neoconservatism to some degree. It's not just those we distinctly know as "Neoconservatives". From Obama to Clinton, Bush, Santorum, even Buchanan to some degree, the Ron Paul Revolution has been no different from the Jeffersonian Revolution of 1800, an attempt tip to back the scales toward moral freedom and organic prosperity, to overturn the mercantilist establishment, to oust the Hamiltonian element from its seat of power.

Glad you understand Hamilton was a globalist...

After all, he is the sole and principal reason why freedom has vanished. So much is misunderstood about Alexander Hamilton, it could likely fill up more than four separate books.

Today the public itself, is unaware for instance that Alexander Hamilton also called himself Alexander Levine and believed very strongly in large government producing more freedom. He slashed and cut all the veterans benefits, making money for himself and his house.

He was a typical politician, which is far more dangerous. People were duped by this man for many decades, and some still believe their freedom comes from coercion and servitude. They have no knowledge that their freedom comes from themselves. To defeat their globalist empire, you must do exactly like Thomas Woods says.

Bring back simple government, small government ideals that Jefferson showed are the only ones which work. Do not accept Hamilton's view anymore, he was the idol of FDR and all the others. He was a corrupt, and conspicuous globalist. Remember this and there will not be anymore dangerous government.

Hamilton believed in central authority and delegation so strongly, that it would seem to literally be sourced from another planet.

This is the original source of their whole world view

Alexander Levin Hamilton is the original globalist: First and only.

Hear, hear!

I quite enjoy your interview style. You seem to be a natural like Scott Horton, born to chat, so to speak. Never a dull moment, keep it up! Here's to the art of conversation and a prolific new season, cheers! :)


Wow, being compared to Scott Horton is certainly a high compliment, though I have. Long way to go to fill shoes like that! Thanks so much for listening.
