Gibson Guitar CEO: We're Under Attack By Obama Administration
Human Events ^ | August 27, 2011 | Jim Hoft

Henry Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson Guitars, Inc. was on The Dana Loesch Show on Friday. Gibson is under attack by the the Obama Justice Department for accusations that the company broke American Indian laws.

Juszkiewiz said the government suggested that the company's use of unfinished wood from India is illegal, not because of U.S. law, but because of the Justice Department's interpretation of a law in India. The Holder Justice Department raided at least two Gibson manufacturing plants this week forcing hundreds of workers off their jobs. Juszkiewiz says the company lost a million dollars this week.

Finally, Henry Juszkiewicz told Dana, "The Obama Justice Department wants us to just shut our doors and go away." He says he will continue to fight for the Gibson company and its workers.

"...the company's use of unfinished wood from India is illegal, not because of U.S. law, but because of the Justice Department's interpretation of a law in India..."

What is the meaning of this? That they broke some damned Indian law? What law? Were no American laws broken?

The U.S. joined Mexico in suing one of its own states to coerce them into not enforcing both State and Federal immigration law. Now this?

This should surprise no one.

Just curious.

Why not use American wood?

Must everything in the United States be imported?

And remember that in 2009 the same DOJ raided them and took loads of stuff because of some wood from Madagascar. They have everything they needed from Madagascar saying that Gibson had the wood legally and complied with all laws but the DOJ is still holding onto their stuff. Once the presidency is taken by a conservative, there needs to be thorough investigations, prosecutions, and deep cauterizing.

You’d have to ask Gibson Guitars.
