Texas Judge Preparing For ‘Civil War’ If Obama Re-Elected
CBSDFW ^ | 08/22/2012

Posted on 08/22/2012 12:48:54 PM PDT by pwatson

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.

Judge Tom Head (credit: Lubbock County) 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.

“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 “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.

The Civil War and the subsequent invasion by the United Nations troops is most likely to occur if Obama is NOT reelected.

Seems reasonable to me since Obama has overthrown Posse Comitatus and wants to have a domestic military to carry out assaults against the conservative ‘threats’ that the DHS has identified.

That is exactly how I see it. I thought I was reading the headline’s meaning backwards at first.

The Gimme class might very well call in UN Troops. But our side is better prepared, better armed and better trained.

When TSHTF, would you rather be in a high rise high density rat cage like Philly? Or in a rural area like most of Western PA?

No need for a tax increase. We have quite a few well armed, well trained Freepers who could do the job.

Right on. I am curious though.

Has anyone ever asked foriegn UN troops if they relish the thought of trying to fight American citizens?

Afghanistan may be the graveyard of armies, but they don’t anywhere the deterrant factor the US has.

Wow!

“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 “invaders.”

He doesn’t need “law enforcement” officers. They didn’t use law enforcement types at Concord in April, 1775.

If he’s NOT re-elected, I see rioting happening in some cities, with the LEOs initially being to PC-bound to do anything about it,

until people say “enough”, and start taking out the trash.

I see it as one of three ways:

1. ‘Bama’ looses and the ‘yutes’ go wild and many a big city lights up the night skies for weeks.
2. ‘Bama’ wins and forces a revolt to free the country from his tyranny.
3 ‘Bama’ sees the writing on the wall that he is going to loose and ‘cracks’ forcing his removal from office.

I know the UN is a fluster cluck but I'm still trying to wrap my mind around this strategy meeting...

UN Gen. #1: "We'll have to strike rapidly and decisively in order to control the continental U.S."

UN Gen. #2: "Yes, General, which means firmly securing west Texas first of all!"

UN Gen. #1: "Right! We don't want a sagebrush rebellion on our hands."

Bear in mind that in smaller locales such as Lubbock, Texas uses what we call at-law-court, where there is no criteria for being a judge. Also note that judges in at-law-court do not have the same authority as a real judge. I just know someone is going to read this and assume that we grow them stupid in Texas. We don’t. He’s a layman in hicksville.

Judging from their track record, they would, indeed. In trouble spots in the Middle East and elsewhere where they have been sent, the blue helmets usually head for the tall grass whenever they come up against real soldiers or guerrilla fighters.

Either CW II or Am Rev II.... it's the only way we can truly get our country back from the death spiral of socialism & demoRATs.

Personally I think we need 2 countries. Liberals/demoRATs/unions/socialists/welfare nanny staters, get the NE states, WA, OR & CA. Conservatives get everything else. And never allow the liberals to migrate or move back to the conservative side. They will find out very quickly that Margaret Thatcher was correct..."Socialism only works until you run out of other peoples money".

He's also acting like the 'right' is violent - and we're not. It's the left that's violent. I think he's a dem - pretending to be a conservative. Most dems are liars - it's who they are.

the only way a UN army could take control of America is if millions of us were first killed and the rest of us become disarmed, thirsty and starving. If not, any foreign invasion would require their importing heavy armory and aircraft or for them to take those heavy weapons from the US military, unless of course the US military joined them. Regarding the millions of rounds of ammo this obozo regime is purchasing, I’d say something very devastating is planned for the US. It would be naive to believe this US government wasn’t part of that plan. (paraphrasing) Like Henry Kissinger said; at some point in the future the American people will welcome the presence of UN troops.

The left's violent liars might attack us - that's why people are buying guns - to defend themselves. The right buying guys to start a war is the crap - the lie - that communist front groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center put out. I HAVE NEVER heard a conservative (a real conservative - not a lying troll pretending to be a conservative) talk about starting a war.

I have run into people buying guns for two reasons, first in-case they try to pass more restrictions, and second we can all see a reasonable situation of a second civil war of sorts us against the rest of the word, islamist, Feds, SHTF who knows. Its all part of the survivalist mind set. I see nothing wrong with planning for the worst hoping for the best.

I've been buying guns because when they outlaw guns.....well "outlaw" sounds like a cool profession.

And of course imagine filling out a job application and being able to write "outlaw" under employment history.

I'll be the first kid on my block to shoot a blue helmet.
