"A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime.... A prominent executive of one of the largest corporations, told me point blank that he would be ready to take definite action to bring fascism into America if President Roosevelt continued his progressive policies. Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there. Propagandists for fascist groups try to dismiss the fascist scare. We should be aware of the symptoms. When industrialists ignore laws designed for social and economic progress they will seek recourse to a fascist state when the institutions of our government compel them to comply with the provisions."

This is all absolutely true. Old Prescott was a cohort of Hitler and a great ADMIROR of his tactics.
Kitty, by the way, writes on presidents and is a historian.* She's not Rense or any other questionable website.
TIME reported that most journalists believe Kelley "too frequently fails to bring perspective or analysis to the fruits of her reporting and at times lards her work with dollops of questionable inferences and innuendos."In addition, Kelley has been described by Joe Klein as a "professional sensationalist" and her books have been described by some journalists as "Kitty litter".

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

The thrust of this thread, as far as I have seen, has not been to hold George W. Bush accountable for the actions of his ancestors, but that their actions shed light on his actions today. To say that he is responsible for his ancestors’ actions is pointless. To say that they have NO bearing on what he is doing today is to take the other extreme.

Do you think about your grandfather's, on your father's side, view before making decisions. I certainly don't.
But your folks weren't powerful politicians either. Do you really think Bush never asked his dad and gramps for political advice at the very least? AT THE VERY LEAST? I personally think he blindly danced to his father and grandfather's tune.

Wow, I feel bad for the grandchildren of every bad person that ever walked the earth! They are all evil because their grandfather was evil. Silly when you think about it. Hasn't everyone had someone that did bad things in their ancestry? Would you want to be judged based upon their actions?
