In an interview on a radio program, Tom Head, who also oversees emergency planning in Lubbock County, promised to get "in front of their personnel carriers," CNN reported. Head claimed the president and his "minions" have filed executive orders allowing the takeover.
"Regardless of whether the Republicans take over the Senate, which I hope they do, he is going to make the United States Congress and he's going to make the Constitution irrelevant. He's got his czars in place that don't answer to anybody," Head said.
He suggested the president's re-election would spark a violent response from the public.
"We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war ... I'm not talking just riots here and there. I'm talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator," Head said. "OK, what do you think he is going to do when that happens? He is going to call in the U.N. troops, personnel carriers, tanks and whatever."
Head made his remarks on KJTV, Lubbock. An aide told the CNN affiliate the judge would delay any further comment for a day or two.
