Department of Justice raids Gibson Guitars

Federal government’s Department of Justice sent agents from Fish and Wildlife to raid the Gibson guitar factories in Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee on Wednesday, August 24. Gibson’s CEO, Henry Juszkiewicz, stated that one of the DOJ agents told him \”all of this would just go away if you would export your labor to Madagascar\”.

Has our government not already forced enough of our businesses overseas, without blatantly coming out and telling the CEO all of his troubles would be over if he would just move his business to India? I’ve seen countless speeches by President Obama, himself, stating that it’s time to bring the jobs back from the foreign countries where they have moved so that we can get all these millions of Americans that are suffering through unemployment back to work. But yet here is an employee of the federal government telling a business man to move his business overseas.

The reason the feds gave for raiding the factory is because of the suspicion that Gibson is using Madagascar ebony, a protected tree, for the face of their guitars. DoJ agents confiscated what they consider to be the illegal wood and other wood from protected trees. Mr. Juszkiewicz stated the wood is not illegal. It seems the wood would have been ‘legal’ if it had been sanded down and stained in the Indian country where it was originally cut. It doesn’t matter that the wood passed the government’s own standards test in order to be shipped over here to begin with. I guess somebody just forgot to mention that tiny bit of information with the person that was receiving their instructions for the raids.

As the article states, the laws used to confiscate these wood products from the Gibson factories is not one of our Federal laws at all, but supposedly a law on the books in the country of India! This is just more proof that the Obama administration is using International law on the citizens of the United States.

How much longer are we, the citizens of this country going to allow this administration to get away with governing this nation with rulings and legislation passed off as laws here in the US, when in fact it is a law from another country?

With the Florida judge issuing the ruling in the court case that came before his bench to be heard between two Muslims, “let their Imam decide which one is right and which on is wrong in this case”, our justice system is absolutely off course and getting further off course every day. This case should have been handled no differently in this American courtroom and in front of this American judge than any other case that came before him. American judges have to make two decisions: is this a state case or a federal case. No where in the United States Constitution nor in any State Constitution does it state a judge may allow a Muslim Imam to grant judgement in a case being tried on American soil.

And the Department of Justice has NO business raiding and shutting down an American based and operated business on the basis of what a law on the law books in the nation of India states, whether the law is actually a law in that country or not!

I hope whoever ordered this raid is prosecuted as fully as those that are going down for this “Fast and Furious” Gun scandal will be. All of this corruption has got to stop sooner rather than later. With everything I’ve read about what a corrupt administration President Richard Nixon had, this present administration, under the leadership of Barack Hussein Obama, is a thousand times worse!

What I don’t understand is WHY are they being allowed to get away with it? The citizens of this country that have tried such corrupt dealings have been arrested and jailed….one example is Enron. And there are thousands of people in jail accused and convicted of the same corruption that Obama and his people are pulling off every day of the week.

It is past time for our elected representatives in the House of Representatives and the Senate to find their spines and stand up against all of this corruption! I propose, by golly, if they won’t do it, then it’s going to be up to us, the citizens of this country to do whatever we can, legally, to get this stopped. Maybe it’s time we citizens see what our legal rights are regarding a time when our elected officials are ALL conspirators against us!

I’ve seen article after article and comment after comment on thousands of posts saying “just wait until 2012 and we can vote them all out”. Well that is fine we can vote them all out, BUT what are the companies like Gibson, and I’m sure there are going to be others, and the employees of those companies going to do to provide for their families while they are waiting until 2012 when the next Presidential election rolls around? I think it should be considered treason what Obama and his administration are doing to this nation and it’s citizens. It seems like no one in our government even remembers what the word treason means any more.

1. Treason, sedition mean disloyalty or treachery to one’s country or its government. Treason is any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one’s government. Sedition is any act, writing, speech, etc.,
directed unlawfully against state authority, the government, or constitution, or calculated to bring it into contempt or to incite others to hostility, ill will or disaffection; it does not amount to treason and therefore is not a capital offense. 2. See disloyalty
I am praying daily it won’t be much longer and Obama will be ousted, one way or another. It would make it so much easier on everyone in America if he would just resign, but we all know that is NOT going to happen. Even though an insider in the White House disclosed earlier this month to a source that he was very close to resigning before the latest debt ceiling debacle came about. It’s too bad for us, the citizens, that he didn’t go with his gut feeling!
Until we meet again, may God BLESS…..

    While I agree with everything you have stated here, including the allegations that Barack Obama has committed treason, you need to accept and understand that NOTHING will be done to counter his actions or to hold him (or members of his administration) accountable – with the possible exception of those occasionally thrown under the bus by Obama himself as a sort of “sacrifice”.

    Why? Two words: Eric Holder. As long as Obama sycophant Eric Holder is Attorney General, he will quash any attempt to hold Obama accountable for anything.

    So much for Hope and Change.

    I hope whoever the Republican candidate is in the 2012 elections will have a laundry list of ALL of Obama’s illegal, questionable and downright DESTRUCTIVE actions all of which have contributed to the pushing of our Democracy closer and closer to the edge of a cliff.

    Of course, I’m just waiting for another of Obama’s sycophants, Mark Lloyd Associate (whom Obama created a new position called “General Counsel/Chief Diversity Officer”) to implement some sort of restriction on web sites like this where people can expose Obama and members of his administration for their Marxist tactics. Let the “looney liberal loser left” continue to walk around drinking the Obama Coolaide and singing Obama’s praises. Anyone with a mind of his/her own is waking up to smell the rancid coffee.

    However, as rancid as it may be, we will have to wait until 2012 to correct the big mistake of 2008.
    Indeed, next year’s campaign slogan ought to be “Change for Hope” because it’s the only hope we have left.

    • Hello Gerry! Thank you for stopping by and liking my post enough to make a comment. I agree that as long as Eric Holder is in as head of the Department of Justice nothing will be done about President Obama. Our only hope is to elect a VERY strong Republican candidate and hope whoever that is, is already making a long list of Constitutional violations that have been carried out by Obama and his minions. I’m pretty sure there are already “watch dogs” out there that are watching blogs like this one and the millions of others and the web sites that are voicing our opinions about what this administration is doing to our country. I agree there is not much we can do to get Obama out of office until the November 2012 election, but it sure would be nice it there were something that we could do. As to your comment about our country being a Democracy, you might want to check out this article explaining the difference between a Democracy and a Republic. Our country was founded as a Republic.

    • Thank you, Nebraska for stopping by and reposting my blog post. I am truly honored. I hope you will be stopping by again to see if you may find another post interesting.
      After seeing your profile on your blog, your picture of you on the pole with your lineman belt, boots and spikes on, reminds me so much of my Daddy. He worked for Stuart C. Irby Construction Company out of Jackson, MS for over 23 years as a lineman. He retired from Irby and worked as a supervisor for the local power company where we now live for almost 10 years before he passed away from complications from leukemia in 1980. We still have many, many pictures of him and his co-workers working on the power poles and up in their bucket trucks. I always wanted to go into that type of work myself, but it wasn’t ‘acceptable’ when I was young enough to actually do it. Thanks for bringing back so many great memories of my Daddy. Looking forward to hearing from you again. Thanks!
