Let's start with the obvious:
1) You didn't know that the Bush patriarchs were prosecuted and had their assests seized under the Trading with the Enemy act.
2) You didn't know that George Herbert Walker Bush did in fact pardon himself in his last day in office.
You've established your ignorance of the subject on that first key point, and bolsterd our perception of it with the second. The way a quality debate
proceeds is to research your counterpoints and make supported arguments, not default into "he's our president-you must support him-you must be
antiAmerican for saying this", none of which is true.
Since you consider data valid soley on the stripe of the poster, look at Nyeff's link. Nyeff is clearly a dyed in the wool Bush Lover/Clinton hater,
and here's what I read from his provided link:
""Young George was in flight school in October 1942, when the U.S. government charged his father with running Nazi front groups in the United
States. Under the Trading with the Enemy Act, all the shares of the Union Banking Corporation were seized, including those held by Prescott Bush as
being in effect held for enemy nationals. Union Banking, of course, was an affiliate of Brown Brothers, Harriman, and Bush handled the Harrimans'
investments as well.
"Once the government had its hands on Bush's books, the whole story of the intricate web of Nazi front corporations began to unravel. A few days
later two of Union Banking's subsidiaries -- the Holland American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation -- also were
seized. Then the government went after the Harriman Fifteen Holding Company, which Bush shared with his father- in-law, Bert Walker, the
Hamburg-Amerika Line, and the Silesian- American Corporation. The U.S. government found that huge sections of Prescott Bush's empire had been
operated on behalf of Nazi Germany and had greatly assisted the German war effort."
""It was Bush who fulfilled Nixon's promise to make the 'ethnic' emigres a permanent part of Republican politics. In 1972 Nixon's State
Department spokesman confirmed to his Australian counterpart that the ethnic groups were very useful to get out the vote in several key states.
Bush's tenure as head of the Republican National Committee exactly coincided with Laszlo Pasztor's 1972 drive to transform the Heritage Groups
Council into the party's official ethnic arm. The groups Pasztor chose as Bush's campaign allies were the emigre Fascists whom Dulles had brought to
the United States. . . .
". . . Nearly twenty years later, and after expose's in several respectable newspapers, Bush continued to recruit most of the same ethnic Fascists,
including Pasztor, for his own 1988 ethnic outreach program when he first ran for president.
"According to our sources in the intelligence community," state the authors, "it was Bush who told Nixon that the Watergate investigations might
start uncovering the Fascist skeletons in the Republican party's closet. Bush himself acknowledges that he wrote Nixon a letter asking him to step
down. The day after Bush did so, Nixon resigned.
"Bush had hoped to become Gerald Ford's vice president upon Nixon's resignation, but he was appointed U.S. ambassador to the UN. Nelson Rockefeller
became vice president and chief damage controller. He formed a special commission in an attempt to preempt the Senate's investigation of the
intelligence community. The Rockefeller Commission into CIA abuses was filled with old OPC [Dulles's Office of Policy Coordination] hands like Ronald
Reagan, who had been the front man back in the 1950s for the money-laundering organization, the Crusade for Freedom, which was part of Dulles's
Fascist 'freedom fighters' program."
In 1988, Project Censored, a news media censorship research organization, awarded the honor of "Top Censored story" to the subject of George Bush.
The article revealed "how the major mass media ignored, overlooked or undercovered at least ten critical stories reported in America's alternative
press that raised serious questions about the Republican candidate, George Bush, dating from his reported role as a CIA 'asset' in 1963 to his
Presidential campaign's connection with a network of anti-Semites with Nazi and fascist affiliations in 1988."
This paper trail you require: it's there in the various newspapers that have written about it; or do you mean you want a copy of the receipt to
Bush's paid dues in the United Fascists of America club!? Or a scan of his membership card?
Now I've debated the Conservative movement on these boards countless times, but only recently have I encounterd the fringe Ultra right Wingers like
you and AR....what is it that has you boys crawling out of the woodwork? You don't come with anything valid to say and hijack threads with a
hysterical fevor for anything our grossly incompetent president does. If you ever decide to research the merits of your opinion before giving them the
litmus test of a public forum where they are soundly refuted, maybe you can look up the similarity between yourself and the BrownShirt movement in
good old Weimar Germany.....it's strikeingly obvious to me.
