 Encyclopedia: Nixon's Enemies List
Nixon's Enemies List is the informal name of what started as a list of the Nixon administration's major political opponents compiled by Charles Colson and sent in memorandum form to John Dean on September 9, 1971.
The list was part of a campaign officially known as "Opponents List" and "Political Enemies Project." 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."

 Times & Seasons » Our Enemies List
Like Nixon, Times and Seasons maintains a detailed “enemies list.” It includes many notables.
Someone will drop in and say “joseph smith was a frad u mormns r all dum!!!!” And we’ll delete it, of course, and add that fine specimen to the Enemies List, also known as the list-of-those-whose-comments-will-never-again-see-the-light-of-day.
Interesting that as I post this comment, every one of the “Recent Comments” listed in the sidebar seems to be a comment from an “enemy.” I guess they strike during the night, and you administrators have to clear them from the site when to come to it early in the morning.

(Having failed to make Nixon's list, I am chagrined at not being on the NRA's either.
The bill (HB 155) provides for exceptions, such as the NRA's own membership lists, the state's list of people licensed to carry concealed weapons, and records pertaining to stolen guns - but for no more than 30 days after the weapon is recovered.
What is most troubling about HB 155 is the phony history the "whereas" clauses cite as a pretext for criminalizing the keeping of lists.

 SparkNotes: The Vietnam War (1945-1975): Nixon and Vietnamization: 1969–1975
Evidence surfaced that Nixon had authorized illegal measures to discredit prominent Democratic opponents and other people on his personal “enemies list.” Ultimately, when it became clear that Nixon himself had broken the law by covering up the scandal, many in the United States began calling for his impeachment.
Nonetheless, Nixon did keep his promise of removing U.S. troops, and it is impressive that he and Kissinger were able to withdraw the United States thoroughly and relatively quickly from the Vietnam quagmire they had inherited from Johnson.
Furthermore, Nixon and Kissinger used the lengthy withdrawal from Vietnam as part of a larger vision of détente, or thawing of tensions among the superpowers.
