Obama Justice Department Shuts Down Gibson Guitar For Breaking Indian Law (Video)

It’s an Obama world…
The Holder Justice Department raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Nashville and Memphis this week because the company is using unfinished wood from India and this violates Indian law… Not American law.
News Channel 5 reported:

The Gibson Guitar CEO responded to the unjust raids today:

Henry Juszkiewicz, Chairman and CEO of Gibson Guitar Corp., has responded to the August 24 raid of Gibson facilities in Nashville and Memphis by the Federal Government. In a press release, Juszkiewicz said: “Gibson is innocent and will fight to protect its rights. Gibson has complied with foreign laws and believes it is innocent of ANY wrong doing. We will fight aggressively to prove our innocence.”

The raids forced Gibson to cease manufacturing operations and send workers home for the day while armed agents executed the search warrants. “Agents seized wood that was Forest Stewardship Council controlled,” Juszkiewicz said. “Gibson has a long history of supporting sustainable and responsible sources of wood and has worked diligently with entities such as the Rainforest Alliance and Greenpeace to secure FSC-certified supplies. The wood seized on August 24 satisfied FSC standards.”

Juszkiewicz believes that the Justice Department is bullying Gibson without filing charges.

“The Federal Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. has suggested that the use of wood from India that is not finished by Indian workers is illegal, not because of U.S. law, but because it is the Justice Department’s interpretation of a law in India. (If the same wood from the same tree was finished by Indian workers, the material would be legal.) This action was taken without the support and consent of the government in India.”

    We can enforce the laws of India, just not our own – especially as relates to our borders and illegal immigrants.

    Our “tax payer dollars hard at work,” shutting down taxpayers who are hard at work.

    What’s wrong with an old-fashioned inspection, if there’s a question?

    Yeah I saw the “would” too … pretty glaring.

    And yet they cannot prosecute the Black Panthers for intimidating voters? Go figure…
    Maybe Gibson guitars are not purchased by Holders people.

    Another “nudge” from Cass Sunstein and The Office Of Information And Regulatory Affairs.

    One day soon, a “nudge” will result in a tipping point to “a crisis too good to waste”, resulting in “it”……… Then we’ll see everyone’ true colors and mettle.

    The Gestapo is waiting…. I suspect this was a fishing expedition to shake them down for cold hard cash for Imam Obama’s election.

    So our Justice Department is enforcing Foreign laws?

    Gibson is an American icon, and thus a tempting target for the garbage that works for the POS president.

    Let me guess. Mr. Juszkiewicz contributes to conservative causes.

    I actually would like to think I wrote that in jest, but deep down inside, I am beginning to be very afraid.

    I’m pretty sure I’m breaking Sharia Law. Should I be worried?
