Tom Head, a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, plunged far out into the periphery of anti-President Barack Obama conspiracy theories on Monday, pushing a particularly outrageous one as justification for a tax increase in the county.
Head told FOX34 that Lubbock’s law enforcement needed extra tax dollars in order to be prepared for a full-scale uprising, which he said could be a byproduct of Obama’s reelection. According to Head, the president is seeking to sign a variety of United Nations treaties that will effectively take precedent over domestic law.
“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.”

Did you think the birther issue had been put to rest? Why, of course not! Author Jerome Corsi intends to pick up where Donald Trump left off with his new book, “Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President.” Released this week, Corsi claims that he found flaws in Obama’s long form certificate.
Well, this time, Obama and his reelection team are giving Corsi, and anyone else who continues to doubt the legitimacy of his birth certificate, the invisible finger by using the bither nonsense to their advantage—their monetary advantage to be more exact. The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that the Obama 2012 team is selling mugs and t-shirts with the president’s long form birth certificate.
In an e-mail to the Times Wednesday morning, Obama 2012 deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot said, “There’s really no way to make this stuff completely go away. The only thing we can do is laugh at it—and make sure as many other people as possible are in on the joke.”
For folks who contribute at least $15 to the campaign, they will receive a “limited edition” Obama birth certificate mug. One side of the mug has the long form certificate, while the other side has a picture of Obama with the words, “Made in the USA.” For those who donate $30, they can look forward to a t-shirt.
Barack Obama is gearing up to lead his campaign for his 2012 re-election and TAP wanted to find out if everyday citizens believed that our hardworking first Black President deserved a second term. Has he's done a good-enough job to warrant four more years? TAP correspondent Eno Alfred took to the streets of Manhattan to find out.
