The goons running Obama’s “Justice” Department have finally agreed to leave Gibson Guitars alone for awhile — in exchange for $350,000:
The federal government will not charge Gibson, but the company has apparently agreed to pay a $300,000 penalty, pay $50,000 to a federal conservation fund and withdraw claims to the valuable fingerboards that were seized in a series of federal raids.
The fingerboards are allegedly made of politically incorrect wood — incorrect because American labor was used to finish it. Again we see that when everything is hyper-regulated, everyone is vulnerable to government bullying.
The Obama Regime didn’t go to these lengths to pick on Gibson Guitars just because it is an all-American icon. Gibson CEO Henry Juszkiewicz donates to Republicans. The moonbats at competitor C.F. Martin & Company don’t have problems with the Injustice Department despite using the same wood, because CEO Chris Martin IV donates to Democrats.
That’s the kind of country we have been “fundamentally transformed” into.
