Texas Judge Under Attack

Texas Judge Tom Head came under criticism and heard calls to retire following comments he made on FOX34 regarding needed funds to increase police forces in response to possible uprisings should Obama win reelection in November.


“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 came under criticism not only for the proposed tax to counter the potential violence he sees, but also the implication that he might join in.

"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."

Letters came into Lubbock's newspapers, one reading "Message for Tom Head: Please resign now."

The majority of the outrage at Head's comments is the impression that he is advocating, or at least instigating violence against Obama. He strongly believes that Obama will use UN troops to implement control of his policies, and that that will result in an outraged lashing back from the American people. Main stream media sources see this sentiment as an irrational anti-Obama rant. Head has as of yet not backed down.

From The Avalanche-Journal:

As emergency management director I have to think of the worst-case scenario, and I used that as an example,” Head said.

In his opinion, the judge explained, the worst-case scenario, politically and financially, is if Obama and the Senate Democrats stay in power.

“Does that mean that I think the U.N. is going to come rolling into Lubbock? No, that probably is not going to happen,” Head said.

As a response to people who argued the county judge used his personal opinions to make political decisions, Head said all public officials bring their value systems into office.

“I cannot divorce my theology and my philosophy from my office,” Head said. “I am pro-life, I’m pro-gun rights and if you’re gonna vote for me and if you’re not for gun rights, then you probably don’t want me in office.”

  •  I guess we have to go at this issue again. I know 65 million registered gun owners,millions of hunters,Constitutional military,national guard,law enforcment NRA, many more pro gun groups & million of Militias that have stayed locked & loaded from the last time DC & UN tried to pull this. We are all well trained,well informed,well armed. None of us want war, & we wont start it, however we will finish it, I swear this on my 5 kids & 9 grandkids heads-this is for their future freedoms & liberties.

  • He won't and can't use UN troops to establish anything here, that would infuriate the general public so much that the troops would never make it down the street without being decimated.

  • I think he is being proactive. He sees how close and influenced our President is by the U.N. I think he is being protective of his community and preparing for the worst. I also think if we can't see the possibility of the President giving more control to the U.N., we may be blidesided. 

  • Wish we had judges like this all over the U.S.   My kind of plain spoken hero...Ignore the left wing turds and stand your ground...Millions of Americans will stand with you!

  • I actually expected this. You see,in this country,when you lie,cheat and steal,you get to be a Senator,a Representative,or even President.don't believe me,ask the two guys who are running now.It's only when you tell the truth that you come under fire in today's America.what we need right now are people who will tell the truth,stand their ground,and let the queers,kooks,and weirdos who want to destrory this country be damned.i hope this judge is one of them.

    Now.it – —
  • I say we demand that ALL  judges that rule against the will of the people retire.There is no more integrity in the legal system,prime example is the incompetent DOJ.

  • I applaud this guy...He is right on on his feelings about what Obama will do to this country if he wins another term... We must  NOT let this happen...vote Romney/Ryan !!!

  • I think he has it all backwards.  The small riots will occur in cities by the ignorant racist blacks and union minions who will riot at his landslide defeat.  Yes, there will be riots but not by patriots!

  • Now here is a man I can support!

    Every Judge and LE officer who has taken the Oath to Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States, should stand shoulder to shoulder with this gentleman and serve the people who elected/appointed them!

    Thank you Judge Head! You're a true patriot!

  • The truth hurts now, doesn't it?

    Any American with a brain knows people will take to the streets if Junior steals this election again with dead people voting, ACORN at work, Black Panthers threatening voters, democraps who vote more than once, etc.

    No more of this chicanery!!!
