Gibson Guitar Raid part 2 of Unjust Justice
In November of 2009 and August 24, 2011 the Justice Department raided the Gibson Guitar factory with fully automatic assault rifles. Eric Holder and the Obama administration felt it was necessary to go after Gibson for what they claim was illegal harvest of a Madagascar hardwood. The Lacey Act which was enacted over a century ago and amended in 2008 to include plants and animals was the basis for this obscure raid. The Lacey act requires that the end users of endangered wood have certification of legal harvest, which Gibson has. One up on that, for Obama and the DOJ’s information, Gibson is part of a voluntary group that works with the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). Gibson also works diligently with the Rainforest Alliance and Greenpeace to secure FSC certified supplies. Wow, Gibson Guitar company sounds like Mother Theresa reincarnated, but hold on to your horses. Gibson led by CEO Henry Juszkiewicz also has a foundation founded in 2002, the (Gibson Foundation) that is committed to making the world a better place. The programs include supporting efforts to advance education, music and the arts, the environment and health and welfare causes. On top of all that, the wood Gibson uses is an industry standard used by every Tom, Dick and Harry guitar company in the world. So why may I ask is the DOJ going after Gibson? Could this be political revenge? No, they wouldn’t do that, (Chrysler dealerships) come to mind. Gibson gave a substantial amount of money to the RNC, while most of the other guitar companies gave to who? that’s right, the Democrats, you win the prize. Lets not forget who we are dealing with folks, this administration will go to all extremes to destroy anybody who isn’t on their side. So, watch youre backside, you may be the next target of this ruthless regime. P.S. if you here a loud knock on the door, hide.
