Texas Judge Preparing For ‘Civil War’ If Obama Re-Elected
CBS DFW ^ | Aug 23 2012 | Unattributed

Posted on 08/23/2012 8:46:37 AM PDT by scottjewell

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” its 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.

Well, I do think he is over-stating the case just a tad. A civil war actually doesn’t sound bad, but I don’t think it’s in the offing.

1) A judge is a public employee, not a “leader”.

2) It’s “worst case scenario” not “worse”.

I don’t know where this guy has been hiding. Obama started the civil war about 3.5 years ago. It’s currently a cold war.. I hope we can win it before we have to take up arms.

Way back in Nursing school, when we rotated through psychiatry, we were taught that none of us is black or white as far as psychiatry goes. We’re all just a different shade of gray.

I think this guy may be one of the more darker shades.........

A few of my not well said meanderings:

As the Roman Empire fell their money was devalued and in search of ever greater tax base everyone was granted citizenship in the empire thus negating any inherent value it had. People became more like chattel than free to be plundered and used in a system with little hope for opportunity and advancement in life.

Much as Orwell pointed out the system seeks to freeze history. No more mobility for a person to alter their condition or for cyclical movements in history to play out. With little or no means to fight back either.

The scenario I believe will be foisted on the US is something along these lines.

Some kind of a bomb or weapon will be used on a major US city. Maybe more than one. Then the federal authorities will command the populations of 10 major cities that are either targeted or already infected or at risk must be evacuated for a 100 square mile radius. All the preparations one makes aren’t gonna be of much use then when people will have to be filed through some system after being completely uprooted.

In conjunction with this foreign troops from anywhere in the world could be brought in through our southern flank.

Thoughts anyone

From the article:

Two Democrats in Lubbock aren’t laughing. “It’s ridiculous. It’s very embarrassing for us here in Lubbock,”Commissioner Gilbert Flores said frustrated. When asked if the Judge should resign over his comments Mr. Flores said, “I don’t know if it will do any good if he resigns or not. I will be very honest with you, this is West Texas, this is hard core anti-Obama/Tea Party.”

Yep, sounds like a lot of loons.../s

My stepdad became a Texas County Judge many years after he retired from the private sector, it seems funny that he could say something that would get so much national press.

The media must like this story.

When I worked as a psychiatric nurse, I learned from my clinical manager that “with every delusion there is a grain of truth.” So what is the “grain of truth” here?

The only delusion I see here is that the judge thinks that the solution is a tax increase and more government power. That is the method Obama is using to start the civil war. Of course, this judge must be planning to support Obama in the war against the citizens, and then the idea of raising taxes to make people pay for their oppressor is just surreal like the bill that Chinese families get for the bullet that murdered their loved one.

Lets hope Texans are smart enough to fire this con-man and reduce the size of the DA's and cop shop budget dramatically.

>>>>Civil war is coming, we need to raise taxes!<<<<

Just when ya think ya heard it all.

He should be prosecuted by his own citizens and jailed for glaring fraud, and being a certified con-man.

And give this AH and additional 2 years in prison for treating the citizens like stupid gullible grade school children.

As I said in the post from yesterday about this, I not am aware of any close relation.

Probably back down the line several generations somehere in the South. Most of the various “Head” lines I am aware of came into Georgia or other points thereabouts in the 1600-1700s. My own cam e in the mid-late 1600s.

As to the topic...well, I can see riots and civil untrest in either eventuality.

Either some minorities, or others, who are sucking on the federal tit and largess revolting when they realize it is about to be cut off should Obama lose. Or, should he win and push things too far, which he is very apt to do when he does not have the constraint of an election to hold him back, the American people as he continues to pile drive the American economy, free-market, military, borders, health care, and moral values into the ground.

Should the latter occur...probably half or more of the military will join the people in that fight and I can see Obama easily calling in the UN or other forces to try and help him maintain his power.

Another possibility is, if Obama sees for sure that he will lose in November, I do not believe he is above a very nasty October surpirse trying to lead to Emergency Powers and all of those EOs being implemented...and they will make it look very good, like some kind of Terrorist bio or dirty nuke...maybe even a real one smuggled in...during which time he suspends elections and you can probably count on them not being re-instated any time soon...which would lead to the same as the second option above.

I hope and pray we just proceed through the election and have him lose big time and deal with that aftermath as it is probably the one with the least upheavel and most sure chance that our Republic comes out of it whole with a chance to be restored.

AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY

I agree..but it could happen either way..I think everyone should vote and then go home and stay in doors for the next few days..Get food and drink in and make sure you have plenty of ammo and at least one gun to protect your family..No one knows what those crazy Obama supporters will do..They have had a free ride for a while now so they do not want to lose that..

Not me. I look forward to the target rich environment and a chance to thin the herd of liberal Obama supporters who would riot.

I have to agree with this judge though, if Obama gets reelected then we could see some of these things come to pass.

I don’t agree on his wanting to raise taxes. But I do feel that there will be huge civil unrest if Obama is reelected.

Maybe even a civil war due to it.

Too bad this judge is trying to use this for money grubbing reasons. But the fact that we will see problems is very real.

On that point I agree with you 100%.

But I do think that a second Obama term would bring about some major changes that could easily result in CW2.

Just saying. On that subject it is obvious the damage of his first term has stirred up quite a bit of violence and anger. 4 more years, and this time as a lame duck without worry that his policies would cause massive damage to the country, could/would result in many who will be listed as domestic terrorists and force us to take up arms to defend our freedoms.

If we get invaded law enforcement will not even begin to save us, National guard will.
And the NG will be the least of the UN's worries against the armed public.
The Bulk of the UN forces are the USA Military, does this nut know this?

All the other countries in the UN do is rape and pillage, it's all they know.
Beyond hyperbole this judge is as dumb as rocks.

No, it would not result in that. This has nothing to do with Obama.

This is about Judge in Texas attempting to scare those drooling in cups to pay more in taxes so they can be safe. This is about a con-man trying to scare more dollars out of some morons. It’s total bull chet.
