Prescott Bush, And The Golden Age Of War Profiteering

Author: November 26, 2011 1:56 pm

Prescott Bush and his son, former President George Herbert Walker Bush.

When the Remingtons, duPonts, Rockefellers, Mellons, J.P. Morgan, George Herbert Walker, Samuel Bush and Prescott Bush, as well as other representatives of America’s corporate elite decided to overthrow the government of the United States in 1934, they recruited retired Marine General Smedley Butler to lead it.

Butler was a two-time winner of the Medal of Honor, a man with a first-rate mind. He intended from the outset to infiltrate the group and turn them in. He did so and Congress held hearings, (the McCormack-Dickstein Hearings) headed by future Speaker John McCormack.

The group had planned to replace President Franklin Roosevelt with someone who would at first be called an “Assistant to the President” to take over the day-to-day operations of government. Remington would supply the arms, Smedley would get the “bonus army”–a half million World War I veterans–to march on Washington and Roosevelt would be shunted aside as Chancellor Hitler (much admired by America’s industrialists) had done to President Hindenburg in Germany.

The group intended to establish a Fascist regime that would send undesirables, including the unemployed, the Jews and political opponents to concentration and/or extermination camps.

Portions of the coup were carried out. The group paid to “own” the editorial policy of 25 major newspapers and sent fellow-plotters to help edit those papers.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (co-founded by Samuel Bush) publicly proposed a plan to control “subversion” that would resemble the Patriot Act of Bush’s great-grandson’s Presidency in 2001.

After General Butler collected names and details, he went public. The story was a sensation for a couple of days, but was quickly pushed off the front pages by a “red scare”–stories of Communist infiltration of the IWW Union.

In the McCormack-Dickstein hearings, none of the powerful citizens involved in the plot was called to testify. They were above that sort of thing.

Although Prescott Bush was a lowly tire salesman when he married Dorothy Walker, his fortunes had quickly improved. His father-in-law George Herbert Walker elevated him to the vice-presidency of Brown Brothers Harriman, which financed exports of gold, steel, weapons and people to Nazi Germany.

Bush ran Hamburg-American passenger line on which American Nazi sympathizers emigrated to Germany under the tutelage of a Nazi “political director.” Bush also helped organize and run UBC, a bank holding company that oversaw many of Hitler’s worldwide investments.

From tire salesman to Hitler’s chief banker and exporter in America, Prescott Bush had come a long way by the time Hamburg-American and UBC were confiscated by the U.S. government. Instead of being tried for treason, his name was kept out of the spotlight and he was given 1.5 million dollars for his one share of stock in UBC.

Five years after World War II, a Connecticut senator died. Prescott Bush who maintained residences in four different states ran for the vacant seat and lost. Two years later another Connecticut senator died, and this time, Bush won.

He personally recruited Dwight D. Eisenhower to run for president. He and his fellow war profiteers would be bitterly disappointed by Eisenhower’s warnings against the military-industrial complex….but that was in the future.

Bush also pushed for Richard Nixon as Vice-President, and was a major donor to Nixon until well into the 1960’s.

So there was a point in the 50’s, when Prescott Bush must have felt like the king of the world:

· He had survived being implicated in a coup against a President of the United States.

· He had thrived even after the defeat of his major client, Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime.

· He had avoided being tried for treason, though the Justice Department had considered it.

· Both the President and Vice-President of the United States were personally indebted to

· His lawyer Allen Dulles was head of the CIA (and gave his boy George H.W. Bush a job.)

· His business partner John Foster Dulles was Secretary of State.

· His business partner Averell Harriman was Governor of New York, later Ambassador to
the Soviet Union.

· Best of all, wars were breaking out all over the globe.

It was the dawn of a golden age of war profiteering.

“War is a racket. It always has been… A racket is something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.” –General Smedley Butler

“There is no historic parallel that can be drawn, nothing compares with the accomplishments of the Bush family. No dictator or tyrant can equal the suffering and destruction they have wrought on humanity, as they are not mere tyrants themselves, but the makers and breakers of tyrants, the organizers and profiteers of war and death. They are not alone and solely responsible for creating the present day military industrial complex, however since 1915 the Bush family has been directly involved in World War One and Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, numerous CIA secret wars, the Gulf War, and now a “Never Ending War”. The past four generations of this one family have had a hand in promoting and profiting from most of the major wars that America has waged since the beginning of the industrialized age.” –Schuyler Ebbets, Globalresearch

“The Walker-Bush cabal’s Nazi partners also helped finance–then profited from–the Auschwitz camp.” –Chris Floyd

“Every great family has its scandal. The Bush family’s scandal is that they funded Hitler and profited from the Holocaust.” –John Loftus

“…newly-uncovered government documents in The National Archives and Library of Congress reveal that Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, served as a business partner of and U.S. banking operative for the financial architect of the Nazi war machine from 1926 until 1942, when Congress took aggressive action against Bush and his ‘enemy national’ partners.” –John Buchanan

“…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.” –Chris Floyd

“For six decades these historical facts have gone unreported by the mainstream U.S. media (except for the July 31, 1942 editions of the New York Herald and Washington Post.) The essential facts have appeared on the Internet and in relatively obscure books, but were dismissed by the media and Bush family as undocumented diatribes.” –John Buchanan

  • And CIA/HWB assassination of William Egan Colby?

  • Turns out this isn’t very new… it’s been out for a while, but never reported as a news story. There’s probably no way to prosecute now- especially with the people still tied to all this in Washington. BUT people like us can do more research; look for holes in the story; confirm it’s all true or not. Spread the word. Share the links, repost on FB, ask friends to post and re-post. Find academics who will support it, news providers who are not beholden to those who would call for silence. Who knows? This could one day be on the 6 PM news.

  • This is like beating down on Disney for having supposedly Racist cartoons and sexual content in the past(When no should be messing with the content, when digitally remastering). Bush is not president anymore, why judge him for his family’s past, I bet you all liked the Tea Party during his presidency, they actually hated him. George W. Bush is a good person, he just had a lot of problems during his presidency, that had people beating on him for expression of his faith, sure there may have been times where he wasn’t listening to God, but he’s a person and man of God, not his past or his family’s past.

    • George W. Bush is a homosexual psychopath, Vietnam draft-dodger, and traitor who, after being cheated into office by the Supreme Court’s treasonous papists exclusively, did overnights in the White House with his gay lover, James Guckert/”Jeff Gannon” documented by the Secret Service’s social entrance logbook, and committed 9/11.

      Care to deny you’re Roman Catholic, Gabriella, of the false religion Thomas Jefferson, America’s Founder, identified as “the real Anti-Christ?”

    • TREASON! You’re comparing Prescott Bush and his TREASONABLE act to Walt Disney and his ACTUALLY VARY RACIST cartoons. Disney can ALMOST be forgiven since racism was main stream and not illegal at the time he released those films.
      But Prescott Bush should have been given a smoke a blindfold and a chance to say a few last words and then put up against a wall and then the three words “ready “, “aim” and “fire” should have been spoken.
      There are no grave markers for people who commit. TREASON.

      Okay, that said, this was an article about Prescott Bush and G.W.Bush was mentioned by name once and referred two twice in this article. All three times were in reference Prescotts legacy. Not once did this article put GW down or diss him in any way. Reading your bleeding heart bullshit into this is a sign of feebleness.

      But since you brought GW up, I’ll reply to your remarks.
      “We” do not judge GW for for the sins of his fathers. “We” judge him for his own personal sins as well as possible TREASONABLE acts.
      He has the blood of many multiple thousands of Iraqi civilians on his hands to name JUST A FEW.
      GWB didn’t simply make Jesus cry he made Jesus bawl like an Iraqi baby sitting next to its mother while she was holding holding a piece of US made led in her brain.

      You I will keep in mind when I say my prayers…

      A “man of God” who takes the country to war on false pretenses, against a country that posed no serious threat to the U.S., had never attacked us (and had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11), which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis, and the displacement of millions more, not to mention over 3000 dead American soldiers and tens of thousands of veterans whose lives have been forever altered by the injuries they sustained in that war. My, that’s certainly defining “Christian goodness” downwards!

  • They control information more and more… since Bush was appointed in 2000.
    Good example… Time magazine has in-depth thoughtful coverage of world events everywhere but in the USA… check out the Daily Kos article on Time covers… as they say, STUNNING.
