Bunkerville has another appalling story. Gibson Guitar in Nashville and Memphis has been raided by the DOJ and shutdown for supposedly violating a law in India – not the U.S. The wood from India, used in some Gibson Guitars, is finished in the U.S.
“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.”
Just to be clear, India isn’t asking for this action in the U.S. The Gibson Chairman and CEO says the company has complied with foreign laws, is innocent and will fight the charges.
There is a lot more at Bunkerville about the abuses of the U.S. Government and their consideration of “international opinion,” and citing Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan. Appalling…yes, that’s the word. Globalism on the march in America.
