Texas County Judge Sees Prospect of Civil War and UN Takeover if Obama Is Re-Elected

An elected Texas judge seeking a tax increase to shore up law enforcement says the officers will be needed in the event of a United Nations takeover of the United States.

It could happen, says Lubbock County Judge Tom Head, if President Obama is re-elected, report CNN and Fox34News. Head talked of a handoff of sovereignty to the UN, a possible civil war and an invasion of UN troops.

Head, an administrator with quasi-judicial responsibilities on the Commissioner’s Court, outlined what he viewed as a worst-case scenario in remarks to Fox34News and FoxTalk950. Here is a portion of one interview as recounted by Fox34News:

Head: “Now what do you think he is going to try to do in this next term? One of the things, my opinion. One of the things is he’s going to try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations. What do you think the public is going to do when that happens? We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war, OK? Now what happens? What happens? Now I’m not talking just talking riots here and there. I’m talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator. OK, what do you think he is going to do when that happens? He is going to call in the UN troops, personnel carriers, tanks and weapons.”

Radio interviewer: “I hope you don’t have like a crystal ball you’re looking into.”

Head: “Hey I’ve got to look at the worst case scenario, OK. I don’t want UN coming into Lubbock County, so I’m going to be standing in front of their personnel carriers and say, ‘You’re not coming in here.’ ”

Last updated 2:17 p.m. Thursday to clarify that Head serves in a county administration role in Lubbock County on the Commissioner’s Court.
