Have you ever wondered how Adolf Hitler, a destitute artist who lived in flophouses, was able to become Germanyís preeminent Furher-god in the 1930ís and 1940ís? I mean, how many near-homeless people are you aware of that have had such good fortune befall them? As many of you know, the Nazi phenomenon was not accidental. Instead, Wall Street bankers (among others) were the hidden financiers behind their meteoric rise to power. Even more regrettable is the fact that our current Presidentís family were among those who bankrolled and profited enormously from the German War Machine.

Authors Webster G. Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin, in ìGeorge Bush: The Unauthorized Biography,î sum up the situation as such: ìBy deciding that Prescott Bush [George W. Bushís grandfather] and the other directors of the Union Banking Company were legally FRONT MEN FOR THE NAZIS, the government avoided the more important historical issue: In what way were Hitlerís Nazis themselves hired, armed and instructed by the New York and London cliques of which Prescott Bush was an executive manager?î

So, before getting into the nuts-and-bolts of this article, Iíll begin by saying that what you are about to read is not ìnewî information. It is readily available from a wide variety of sources, so please donít think my intent is to break new ground. Rather, my purpose is to provide an overview of how Dutch Intelligence and U.S. Government files ëconfirm absolutelyí a direct link between Prescott Bush, the Thyssen Family, and death profits derived from our second world war. They derived this blood-money via the Union Banking Corporation (UBC), where Prescott Bush and his father-in-law George Herbert Walker joined forces with German manufacturer Fritz Thyssen and bankrolled Adolf Hitler prior to, and during, WWII.

Now, even though plenty of other companies helped the Nazis (like the Rockefellerís Standard Oil and Chase Bank, plus prominent American auto makers), Prescott Bushís interests were much deeper and sinister. Not only was there a monetary link, but also business ties that were much more involved.

What Iím trying to say is this: a good portion of the Bush Familyís financial foundation was established through their assistance to Adolf Hitler. Can you feel the ramifications of this statement? The current President of the United States, plus his father (an ex-President, V.P., and CIA Director) rose to the top of the American political ladder because their grandfather and in-laws aided and abetted the Nazis. The questions I want to ask right now are:

1) Why wonít President Bush admit to these family crimes?
2) Why wonít the media directly question him about these abhorrent crimes?

Naturally, some may not believe that the Bush Family directly assisted the Germans, in essence committing treason against their own country. But sadly, itís true. To prove it, letís start at the beginning.

In 1922, W. Averill Harriman, the infamous railroad magnate, traveled to Berlin where he met with members of the Thyssen Family to set-up a branch bank. And who became the President of this bank? George Herbert Walker, Prescott Bushís father-in-law. Two years later, in 1924, the Union Banking Corporation (UBC) was created to join forces with Fritz Thyssenís ìBank voor Handel en Scheepvaart.î And who was appointed to DIRECTLY MANAGE UBC? Prescott Bush. Even better for Prescott was the fact that George Herbert Walker game him a tremendous break in 1926 by making him vice president and managing partner in Brown Brothers Harriman. And who did Prescott bring along with him to this firm? A handful of his Yale classmates from Skull & Bones. Plus, Prescott Bush was only one of seven shareholders in UBC.

At this point youíre probably thinking, whatís the big deal? Nothing seems out-of-the-ordinary. This is nothing more than business as usual. But appearances can be deceiving, as weíll soon find out. Yísee, right at the end of this Roaring Twenties, something happened that, when viewed in the context of Prescott Bush, puts everything in perspective.

Authors Tarpley and Chaitkin once again in ìGeorge Bush: The Unauthorized Biographyî: ìThe great financial collapse of 1929-31 shook America, Germany and Britain, weakening all governments. It also made the hard-pressed Prescott Bush even more willing to do whatever was necessary to retain his new place in the world. It was in this crisis that certain Anglo-Americans determined on the installation of a Hitler regime in Germany.î

And who would be one of the key figures to initiate the change of the guard in Germany? The Bush Familyís business partner ñ Fritz Thyssen. This, I believe, would be a good time to take a look at what type of crowd the Bushís were running around with. Fritz Thyssen was the first man to get the newly-formed Nazi Party off the ground by giving them $25,000 in the mid-1920ís. In 1931, he joined the Nazi Party, and soon became close friends with Adolf Hitler. Over the years, Thyssen came to be known as ìHitlerís most important and prominent financierî and became one of the primary figures in his rise to power. Thyssen was fascinated by Hitler, as he boasted, ìI realized his orator gifts and his ability to lead the masses. What impressed me most, however, was the order that reigned over his meetings, the almost military discipline of his followers.î

By September, 1932, Thyssen invited a cadre of German manufacturers to meet with Hitler, and all walked away overjoyed after he answered each question to their ëutmost satisfaction.í Thyssen was so overt in his praise and support that he even wrote a book entitled, ìI Paid Hitlerî where he comes clean about the role he played in Nazism since October, 1923.

Fritz Thyssen was also influential in establishing the ìGerman Steel Trustî which was founded in 1926 by Wall Street high-roller Clarence Dillon. And who was one of Dillonís cohorts on this project? Prescott Bushís father, Sam Bush. Thus, Fritz Thyssen became one of the men at the core of Germanyís War Machine due to his position at German Steel. His family also owned a slew of banks (on the sly, of course) that allowed the Thyssens to move their money from Berlin to Holland to New York City. That way, after World War II came to a close, they didnít have to surrender their profits!

But Iím jumping ahead of myself. Yísee, the Thyssen Family established three highly important banks during the 1920ís:

1) August Thyssen Bank ñ Berlin
2) Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart ñ Holland
3) Union Banking Corporation (UBC) ñ New York City

Now weíre starting to get somewhere. Why? Because the Thyssens received their initial financing from two places to start their War Machine operations: Brown Brothers Harriman, and UBC. And who were key figures at both of these places? George Herbert Walker and Prescott Bush! Thus, UBC was set-up to transfer funds between Manhattan and Germany via Thyssenís Dutch banks. The Thyssenís got assistance in this endeavor from the Dutch Royal Family, who cooperated to hide their accounts in a variety of Dutch banks. This point is significant, for the chief perpetrator was Prince Bernhard. And what did he go on to create? Answer: the infamous Bilderberg group during the 1950s!

UBC, then, became a secret pipeline for Nazi money as it went from Germany to Holland to the USA. And when they needed to replenish their supplies, Brown Brothers Harriman shipped their funds right back to Germany. Are you starting to see how this operation worked? UBC received the money from Holland, and Brown Brothers Harriman sent it back out. And who was on the Board of Directors of both companies? Yup, Prescott Bush! He was the Naziís primary money launderer!

Their practices became so blatant and injurious to Americans that on October 10, 1942 the U.S. Government ordered the seizure of all Nazi Germany banking operations in New York City that were being conducted by Prescott Bush. UBC, with Bush as its director, was charged under the ìTrading with the Enemy Actî and all their stocks were seized. And do you remember who I said owned all these stocks? There were only seven people ñ Prescott Bush, three Nazi financiers, and three Americans.

But the crackdown didnít end there; not by a long-shot. On October 26, 1942, the government ordered seizures of two other front companies that were run by Prescott Bush for the Harriman Banking firm:

1) Holland-America Trading Corporation
2) Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation

Then, on November 11, 1942, ANOTHER company managed by Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker was seized under the ìTrading with the Enemy Actî ñ Silesian-American Corporation. I donít know if youíd agree, but if our government went to those lengths to shut down the Bush Familyís operations, Iíd have to say they were involved in some seriously nasty business.

John Loftus, who I quoted at the beginning of this article, said of this traitorous situation: ìIt is bad enough that the Bush Family helped raise the money for Thyssen to give Hitler his start in the 1920ís, but giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war is treason. The Bush bank helped the Thyssens make the Nazi steel that killed Allied soldiers.î

Tarpley and Chaitkin, in ìGeorge Bush: The Unauthorized Biography,î said it even more succinctly: ìThe Presidentís family fortune was largely a result of the Hitler Project.î

Still not convinced? Well, how about this. The Union Banking Corporation, which Prescott Bush ran, in unison with Fritz Thyssenís German Steel Trust, produced the following percentages of the Nazi War Machine:

- 50.8% pig iron
- 41.4% universal plate
- 36% heavy plate
- 38.5% galvanized steel
- 45.5% pipes and tubes
- 22.1% wire
- 35% explosives

All the above materials are needed to build tanks, fighter planes, guns and bombs ñ roughly 1/3 of the entire German War Machine ñ all of it bankrolled by not only an outward Nazi in Fritz Thyssen, but also the Bush Family as well.

Anyway, if youíre not disgusted enough already, letís jump forward a few years. The war ends in 1945, and Fritz Thyssen subsequently dies in 1951. Upon his death, the remaining shareholders at UBC liquidated their stock (these were the same assets frozen by our government under the ìU.S. Alien Property Custodian Actî in 1942 and not given back until 1951). And guess who one of the beneficiaries was. You got ñ Prescott Bush! And how much money did he receive? $1.5 million. Coincidentally, Mr. Bush took these profits and instantly plunged it into starting his own business. Convenient, huh? Worse, Prescott Bushís cohorts (the same Wall Street backstabbers that financed Hitler) are also the same ones that (over time) made George Bush Sr. CIA Director in the 1970ís and put him and his son into the White House! Now do you see why Dan Rather and the New York Times arenít giving you this information?

To confirm the above details, new information surfaced in 1996 that came from three different sources: a) Dutch journalist Eddy Roever b) U.S. Freedom of Information Act S.S. files and c) Alien Property Custodian Archives. The information derived from these sources paints an even nastier picture of the situation. It seems that UBC in New York City was owned by the Thyssens. Thus, the Bush Familyís primary banking facility was owned by, and their boss was, one of the most notorious behind-the-scenes Nazis of all-time! The big question at this point is, was Prescott Bush aware of his Nazi links and business dealings? Considering all the information brought out in this article, Iíd have to say that as DIRECTOR of UBC, it was HIS ultimate responsibility to oversee every investment, including who they were made to and where they went.

Another interesting note is that the Rockefeller Family also invested heavily in the Nazi War Machine. As it turns out, UBC was an essential element for the laundering of dirty money that was derived from the Rockefellerís investments in Germany during the war. This scenario becomes even more interesting when we find that the Rockefellerís bank ñ Chase Manhattan ñ wound up with 31% ownership of the Thyssen Group after WWII!

This point is very important for TBC (the Thyssen Group) is the largest industry in Germany today, worth $50 billion. Theyíre so huge that they even bought out the Krupp Family, who were infamous weapons suppliers for the Nazis. In essence, they are one of the richest companies in the world, and where did their start-up money come from? The Nazis!

What we have then are links to the three major secret trade organizations in the world. Prince Bernhard, who founded the Bilderbergs, enabled the Thyssen Family to launder their money through Holland, while the Rockefellers bought nearly 1/3 controlling interest of Thyssen (David Rockefeller founded the Trilateral Commission). And finally, Brown Brothers Harriman and UBC, through which Nazi money was funneled into America, was largely formed by Yaleís Skull & Bones members, all of whom were instrumental in forming the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Are you beginning to see how all of these organizations are interconnected like the giant tentacles of an evil octopus?

Finally, in regard to the Bush Family, weíve discussed in this article how the Bush Family fortune was mounted on the back of Nazi blood-money. Plus, in a prior article that I wrote (See Babel # 58) we discovered that the Bush Family has also enjoyed business relations with the bin Laden family for the past thirty years, and both belonged to the Carlyle Group. Knowing this, what type of loyalties and decisions do you think George W. Bush will make - those that benefit everyday American citizens, or those made by his puppet-masters? If you ask me, Iíd say weíre in trouble.
