An elected official, Judge Tom Head, took to a local Fox News station in Lubbock, Texas, to warn his fellow residents of the civil war that an Obama reelection will cause. Head claims his city will need to increase the property tax by 1.7 cents to help the city’s law enforcement be prepared for a full-scale uprising if President Obama wins this year’s presidential election.
“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Head asked. “I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
Head continued to elaborate on how he plans to take action against the hypothetical situation, “Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops. I don’t want ’em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say, ‘You’re not coming in here,'” the judge said. “And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said, ‘You gonna back me?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”
We’re hoping the folks in Lubbock, Texas, are smart enough to know that Head’s forecast of ‘civil unrest’ from an Obama reelection are completely false. Anything signed by the president as part of a U.N. Convention “can only be implemented through domestic legislation enacted by Congress or state legislatures, in a manner and time-frame determined by our own legislative process,” according to AmnestyUSA.org. Also, broader U.N. provisions can’t supersede laws passed by Congress, and only serve as guiding principles for signatories to consider.
It seems as if the folks down in Texas are losing faith in this year’s GOP presidential ballot.
