Walker, Bush & the Nazis
Here we follow the story of Dubyah's grandfather, Prescott Bush, and his great-grandfather, George Herbert Walker, and their support of and profit from the Nazis.
DELAYED REACTION 10/18/03 Counterspin: "The well-known to Bush critics story about how Dubyah's Grandfather, Prescott Bush, had a connection to the Nazis has busted out into the mainstream media...thanks to the recent declassification of government documents."
Bush Ancestor's Bank Seized by Gov't 10/17/03 AP: "President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show."
Documents: Bush's Grandfather Directed Bank Tied to Man Who Funded Hitler 10/17/03 Fox News: "President Bush's grandfather was a director of a bank seized by the federal government because of its ties to a German industrialist who helped bankroll Adolf Hitler's rise to power, government documents show." This story curiously limits the facts in the case.
Bush - Nazi Link Confirmed 10/10/03 New Hampshire Gazette: "The documents also show that Bush and his colleagues, according to reports from the U.S. Department of the Treasury and FBI, tried to conceal their financial alliance with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, a steel and coal baron who, beginning in the mid-1920s, personally funded Adolf Hitler's rise to power by the subversion of democratic principle and German law. Furthermore, the declassified records demonstrate that Bush and his associates, who included E. Roland Harriman, younger brother of American icon W. Averell Harriman, and George Herbert Walker, President Bush's maternal great-grandfather, continued their dealings with the German industrial baron for nearly eight months after the U.S. entered the war."
Reich? The Bush-Rove-Schwarzenegger Nazi Nexus 10/6/03 Counterpunch: "George
W. Bush's grandfather helped finance the Nazi Party. Karl Rove's grandfather
allegedly helped run the Nazi Party, and helped build the Birkenau Death Camp.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's Austrian father volunteered for the infamous Nazi SA and
became a ranking officer. Together, they have destabilized California and are on
the brink of bringing it a new Reich. With the Schwarzenegger candidacy they
have laid siege to America's largest state, lining it up for the 2004
Forbidden Truth - The Sellouts in the Fourth Estate 7/22/02 Counterpunch: "So the media elite, in some perverted and confused quest to show its loyalty to the Bush family, has decided that linking its policies in Afghanistan and the Middle east to its past oil dealings, is somehow off the mark, "out there," unworthy of consideration. Reconstructed liberal and progressive journalists throw around the "C word" (conspiracy) to detract from those who write about the massive evidence that points to the Bushes having traded the nation's economic well-being and national security for personal profit. Grandfather Bush, Prescott, certainly did this during World War II when his investments included companies that supported Nazi Germany's war effort."
Author links Bush family to Nazis 12/30/01 Sarasota Herald Tribune: This story came out 11/11/00 and was completely ignored. And Loftus knows what he is talking about: "The president of the Florida Holocaust Museum said Saturday that George W. Bush's grandfather derived a portion of his personal fortune through his affiliation with a Nazi-controlled bank. John Loftus, a former prosecutor in the Justice Department's Nazi War Crimes Unit, said his research found that Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was a principal in the Union Banking Corp. in Manhattan in the late 1930s and the 1940s. Leading Nazi industrialists secretly owned the bank at that time, Loftus said, and were moving money into it through a second bank in Holland even after the United States declared war on Germany. The bank was liquidated in 1951, Loftus said, and Bush's grandfather and great-grandfather received $1.5 million from the bank as part of that dissolution."
Bush Family Whitewashing in Iraq and Nazi Germany 6/10/03 Counterpunch: "Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, and Prescott's father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, helped finance the rise of the Nazi Party through their intimate entanglements with Nazi industrial, shipping and banking interests. This long (and well-documented) collaboration continued even after America was at war with Nazi Germany. It seems the blood money was just too good to pass up--even if it had to be dug out of the corpses of young American soldiers and innocent civilians throughout Europe and North Africa. The Walker-Bush cabal's Nazi partners also helped finance--then profited from--the Auschwitz camp. Finally, in 1942, the U.S. government seized the Walker-Bush Nazi assets under the Trading With the Enemy Act. But the well-connected clan managed to bury the news in the back pages: brief mentions of the companies involved, but no names of the Establishment grandees behind them. They also pulled strings to keep their American assets from being seized as well, even though the profits from these enterprises were inextricably mixed with their Nazi loot. Prescott later cashed in these tainted assets for millions, a nest egg that helped launch him into the Senate and his son and grandson into the White House."
