LUBBOCK (CBSDFW.COM) - A Texas leader is warning of what he calls a ‘civil war' and possible invasion of United Nations troops if President Barack Obama is re-elected.
Lubbock County Judge Tom Head is convinced that Mr. Obama winning a second term would lead to a revolt by the American people and he's is pushing a tax increase for the district attorney's office and the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office. He says the money is needed to "beef up" it's resources in case President Obama wins the November election.
In the event of civil unrest Judge Head said he's concerned the President would hand over sovereignty of the United States to the U.N. and that the American public would react violently.
"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the U.S. to the United Nations, what's going to happen when that happens?" Judge Head told FOX 34 in Lubbock.
"I'm thinking worse case scenario," Judge Head explained. "Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe…we're not just talking a few riots or demonstrations."
The West Texas judge's proposed tax increase is to help the sheriff's office hire a law enforcement large enough to protect the county and to drive away the invaders.
"I don't want rookies," Head said flatly. "I want trained, equip and seasoned veteran officers to back me."
The republican judge said that he himself will meet the enemy, "in front of their armored personnel carriers" to tell them they are not welcome, and has the county sheriff to back him up. "I don't want U.N. troops in Lubbock County," he said.
Tom Head, a graduate of Highland Park High School, has been a county judge since 1999.
