Among other things, Tricky Dicky Nixon was notorious for keeping an “enemies list” compiled mainly by his resident neo-Nazis H.R. Haldeman and John Erlichman and consisting of those people and groups they all rightly considered Nixon foes.Â Â
Eventually, that listing contributed to Nixon’s resignation.Â AÂ Democrat CongressÂ decided that a Republican president compiling namesÂ of his enemies, in conjunction with over-zealousÂ ”plumbers” illegally plumbing the depths of the DNC’s Watergate complex, and the infamous 18 1/2 minute tape gap constituted sufficient grounds forÂ removal from office.Â Â
A presidentÂ keeping an enemies list, and linked to a burglary,Â andÂ with aÂ mysterious tape gapÂ was deemedÂ totally reprehensible whenÂ heÂ was caught by the opposition party with the power to seek vengeance–as opposedÂ toÂ a president who lies under oath to the American people whichÂ was considered not impeachment-worthyÂ by that same party a decade later.Â
Incomparably wise politician that he is, Barack Hussein Obama no doubt has a listing ofÂ countless enemies but, as the most brilliant president in the history of the Republic, he probably files it away in his brilliant mind.Â He allows faithful surrogates in his mainstream media to intuit his feelings and revile andÂ discredit them while he preserves his anointed status above the ugly fray.Â
And they’re doing a fine job, indeed!
Â For example, as far as I know, Obama has never directly attacked Rush Limbaugh or his credibility.Â He doesn’t have to.Â Minions such as NBC’s highly-esteemed Brian Williams handle the chore for him.Â
Williams is obviously very ready and very willing to serve his master.Â Toward that end, on Election night heÂ and RINO Steve Schmidt concurred that Limbaugh–as well as Donald Trump–”gotta be shut down . . . repudiated by serious leaders in the party and the need for “civil war” in the GOP against Limbaugh and his ilk. (http://tiny.cc/n0dpnw)Â
“Shut down,” Mr. Williams, as in suspending or revoking the First Amendment’s guarantee ofÂ our rights to free speech and peaceful dissent?
In addition to Limbaugh, the Drudge Report and FNC have long been outspoken Obama critics, Drudge by posting news items the president doesn’t like and FOX by virtue of the same as well asÂ for allowing various commentators to speak the truthÂ concerning Obama’s smarmy past and what’s been going on inÂ America’s White House and in his administration for the last four years.Â
The president hasÂ made no bones about hisÂ distaste toward all of his enemies.Â However, standing magnificently onÂ his high road, he simply encourages his hatchet men and women to do his dirty work.Â
We are not yet at the stage thatÂ powerful politicians arrange theÂ assassination ofÂ people who disagree with them.Â Not yet, although Andrew Breitbart’s sudden and mysterious death last year may have been the first.
Â To date, even the leftists on MSNBC, the president’s cable news station, haven’t endorsed murdering conservatives such asÂ Matt Drudge; they prefer vicious character assassination for now.
Â Truth really does hurt: In October, MSNBC “The Cycle” co-hosts angry black man Toure and Steve Kornacki were incensed over conservatives making an issue of Obama’s hypocritical penchant for speaking to black audiences in ghetto tones while he addresses whitesÂ as if he were a constitutional scholar.Â
Toure, who goes by one name because he can and whoÂ had previously accused MittÂ Romney of an undefined “niggerization,” alleged FNC’s Sean Hannity and Drudge were out and out racistsÂ because they had publicized the tape.Â Kornacki seconded Toure, noting that “the reality withÂ [Drudge] is it [sic] is always slanted, always pushing a very transparent agenda and it basically never adds up to anything.”
He added not parenthtically,Â ”I hope in a way this is a moment that we can all kind of agree to marginalize Matt Drudge.”Â (http://tinyurl.com/be2d6o7)
With murdering dissidents still verbotten in America, unlike in Vlad Putin’s Russia, what then would “shutting down” and “marginalizing” Obama enemies Limbaugh or Drudge, or the entire FOX News Channel–or all their evil counterparts such as Glenn Beck, the editors of the Washington Times, the Washington Examiner, et al. entail?Â
No one really knows.Â
Â Remember,Â Obama’s enemies list is secret, all in his mind along with the consequences toÂ meted out in his second term to all who dared provoke him in his first term.Â Remember also that with his new “flexibility” now in hand he might follow Putin’s lead.Â
Rush and Matt and Sean and every other conservative inÂ America would be well advised to insure their affairs are in order.Â Â
