As reported earlier today on the Alex Jones Show, the Globe has published what appears to be an enemies list drawn up by Obama at the urging his wife and former president Clinton. In addition to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and oddly Dick Cheney, the list includes Alex Jones. Alex was included for his films, The Obama Deception and the forthcoming Fall of the Republic: The Presidency of Barack Obama.
The Globe cites sources close to the Obama administration.
“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.

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. Philippe Reines, a spokesman for both Clintons, says neither kept any specific catalog of those believed to have wronged them. “There is no list,” Reines told the New York Times.
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.
During this period, the FBI and CIA were engaged in attacking political opponents of the government under COINTELPRO, Operation CHAOS, and other illegal and covert programs.
