Enemies lists do exist, and Alex Jones is probably on a lot of them

The existence of an “Obama hit list” which includes Alex Jones amongst the biggest political enemies of the Obama administration is believable not because it was reported by tabloid magazine The Globe, but because such lists are known to have been kept by the Clintons and others very close to the President.
The Globe cites sources close to the Obama administration in compiling a list of 25 names, people who the Obamas intend to “take down one by one,” that includes Glenn Beck, Rep. Joe Wilson, the Congressman who called Obama a liar on national television, as well as country singer Toby Keith.
Alex Jones is listed as enemy number 24 on the list due to his Obama Deception DVD and his upcoming film Fall Of The Republic, both of which slam Obama as a front man for the global elite.
“Obama is getting strategic guidance from Bill Clinton,” the report states. “Bill has met several times with Obama to discuss how he can counterattack his enemies, the source says. The most recent powwow was a 90-minute session at New York’s trendy Il Mulino restaurant on Sept. 14. As police and secret service surrounded the eatery, Bill sat with Obama plotting various ways to get even with his fiercest critics.” Clinton allegedly urged Obama to draw up an enemies list and “then take them down one by one.” According to the article, Obama intends to engage in “all-out mortal combat.”
Alex Jones indicates that if the Obama administration indeed has an official enemies list and his name is included, he will consider taking legal action.
Political hit lists are by no means an invention of supermarket tabloid magazines. A March 2009 CBS News story described how Speaker of the House and close Obama ally Nancy Pelosi has kept such a list throughout her political career, “a roster of those whom she believes have screwed up, betrayed her, challenged her or merely annoyed her.”
According to the article, Pelosi has sought to strip power from her adversaries and “has a propensity for remembering slights and grievances for years.”
The story goes on to list eight people who are on Pelosi’s political enemies list, including Rush Limbaugh, who also appears on the Obama hit list published by The Globe.
Only the stupidly naive would deny the fact that politicians are a back-stabbing and vindictive breed, therefore it’s common sense that they would attempt to discredit and disenfranchise those who have opposed and exposed their behavior. Or as one blog puts it, “Michelle Obama does come across as a really vindictive shrew, so it is easy to imagine her having an enemies list.”

The fact that Bill Clinton was purported to have advised Obama who to put on his enemies list fits with the long held view that both Bill and Hillary kept hit lists during the Clinton’s presidency as well as during and after the 2008 Democratic primaries, a topic explored by MSNBC in June 2008.
“While Hillary Clinton has a short list of people who disappointed her, Bill Clinton, who reportedly has an encyclopedic memory of all the people he has helped, employed or appointed over the years, apparently has a far longer one,” reported the New York Times In November last year.
On September 27, former president Clinton said the “vast right-wing conspiracy” that attacked him during his presidency has been weakened, but continues to operate against Obama.
“I mean, they’re saying things about him [Obama] — you know, it’s like when they accused me of murder and all that stuff they did,” Clinton told David Gregory of NBC’s Meet the Press.
According to anonymous insiders, Bill and Hillary Clinton kept detailed lists of enemies. Others even suggest that a list of people who died in suspicious circumstances were the victims of a “Clinton death list” which included journalists, political adversaries like Vince Foster, and others who had witnessed the Clinton’s corruption at close quarters.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Obama operatives had compiled an enemies list of people spreading “disinformation” about Obama’s proposed national health care plan. In response to the effort, U.S. senator John Cornyn of Texas wrote a letter to Obama that “expressed serious concern about the White House’s new program requesting Americans to forward email chains and other communications opposing the President’s health care policies. Sen. Cornyn is seeking assurances that the program is being carried out in a manner consistent with the First Amendment and America’s tradition of free speech and public discourse,” Cornyn’s website noted on August 5.
During the election, Obama’s campaign asked Missouri law enforcement to target Obama’s critics. Two high-profile Missouri officials — Jennifer Joyce, St. Louis Circuit Attorney, and Robert P. McCullouch, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney — went on local television and said they would prosecute “anyone who lies or runs a misleading television ad during the presidential campaign.” Gov. Matt Blunt subsequently declared the court officers had “attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.”
The term “enemies list” came into prominence during the Nixon administration. Charles Colson and his assistant George T. Bell had compiled a list of official enemies in 1971. The official purpose, as described by the White House Counsel’s Office, was to “screw” Nixon’s political enemies, by means of tax audits from the IRS, and by manipulating “grant availability, federal contracts, litigation, prosecution, etc.” Nixon’s list contained the names of newspaper editors and journalists, actors, supporters of Democrat Eugene McCarthy and others.
