Corruption: Paraphrasing Johnny Rotten, 'Never trust a fahkin' liberal'

http://hotair.com/archives/2013/05/26/does-that-gibson-guitar-raid-make-more-sense-now/

As the 'liberal' supporters of Barack Obama's hapless presidency and more recently the US Democratic Party's 2016 failed candidate 'Crooked Hillary' Clinton whip themselves into an ever greater frenzy over the hugely entertaining antics of President Trump, An editorial at Investors Business Daily may end up being considered by historians as defining exactly why the Obama administration failed so catastrophically. For several years before Obama finally ended America's agony and left office, there were rumours of cases where the administration appeared to use the legal muscle of the federal government to settle political scores with people and organisations that had annoyed the cocksucker president. The IBD article looked at the case of Gibson Guitars and the federal raids on their facilities for alleged illegal importing of exotic woods used in their products. The journal reached this disturbing conclusion.

The inexplicable raid nearly two years ago on a guitar maker for using allegedly illegal wood that its competitors also used was another targeting by this administration of its political enemies…
Interestingly, one of Gibson’s leading competitors is C.F. Martin & Co. According to C.F. Martin’s catalog, several of their guitars contain “East Indian Rosewood,” which is the exact same wood in at least 10 of Gibson’s guitars. So why were they not also raided and their inventory of foreign wood seized?
Were C.F. Martin getting their rosewood supplies from a licenced source? Apparently not. Did they apply for an import permit or something that Gibson forgot about? No… so what might it be?

Grossly underreported at the time was the fact that Gibson’s chief executive, Henry Juszkiewicz, contributed to Republican politicians. Recent donations have included $2,000 to Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and $1,500 to Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
By contrast, Chris Martin IV, the Martin & Co. CEO, is a long-time Democratic supporter, with $35,400 in contributions to Democratic candidates and the Democratic National Committee over the past couple of election cycles.
“We feel that Gibson was inappropriately targeted,” Juszkiewicz said at the time, adding the matter “could have been addressed with a simple contact (from) a caring human being representing the government. Instead, the government used violent and hostile means.”

That attack on liberty ened with Gibson having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to the government even though the hearings found no evidence of criminal action. The whole episode has the appearance of something engineered by shyster lawyers for the sole purpose of punishing a company that supported the government's political adversaries. Gibson could not fight the penalty through the courts as it had no legal basis, they just had to pay up or face having their business shut down. 

And these authoritarian liberals call Trump a fascist.

While all this was going on, there was plenty of reason to suspect that there was politics of some sort involved but reporters who covered the story  did not seem to suspect how blatantly executive power was being abused by the Obama administration. Is it surprising however that surprising when a country elects a mixed race guy who totally disses the Euro - American side of his family and tells self - aggrandizing lies about his African connections will behave like an African tyrant once in power.

. With Democrats in control of the White House and the Senate, it didn’t seem much of a stretch to think that the eco-warriors were in full throated, chest thumping mode and they would be pushing the limits to show how much they were doing to save the planet. The Gibson story, with its endangered rainforests, homeless monkeys  and evil manufacturing giants stripping the land elements, was a perfect fit for the narrative being pushed by mainstream media at the time. But I don’t think many reasonable people imagined that even the Obama administration would be so contemptuous of democracy as to simply launch a communist police state style attack on a company which did not kowtow to their authoritarian style of government, while ignoring Obama friendly, Democrat donating competitors involvement in the same offence.

Is this paranoid, tinfoil hat territory? Obama supporters reading this will probably try to insist it is. But given the levels of corruption and dishonesty uncovered recent news stories, not only from the USA but also Europe and the rest of the developed world is it really that far fetched? Remember a conspiracy theory is no longer a theory once the allegations have been shown to have substance.
