Subject: The Bush Family's History of Nazi Affiliation

Do you think that this is relevant to national discussion? Do disseminate this information to other interested parties. References are at the end of the post.

In October 1942, ten months after entering World War II, America was
preparing its first assault against Nazi military forces. Prescott
Bush was managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman. His 18-year-old
son George, the future U.S. President, had just begun training to
become a naval pilot. On Oct. 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered
the seizure of Nazi German banking operations in New York City which
were being conducted by Prescott Bush. Under the Trading with the
Enemy Act, the government took over the Union Banking Corporation, in
which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized
Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares, all of which were owned by
Prescott Bush, E. Roland `` Bunny '' Harriman, three Nazi executives,
and two other associates of Bush. (1)

By Oct. 26, 1942, U.S. troops were under way for North Africa. On
Oct. 28, the government issued orders seizing two Nazi front
organizations run by the Bush-Harriman bank: the Holland-American
Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. (2)

U.S. forces landed under fire near Algiers on Nov. 8, 1942; heavy
combat raged throughout November. Nazi interests in the
Silesian-American Corporation, long managed by Prescott Bush and his
father-in-law George Herbert Walker, were seized under the Trading
with the Enemy Act on Nov. 17, 1942. In this action, the government
announced that it was seizing only the Nazi interests, leaving the
Nazis' U.S. partners to carry on the business. (3)

Bush and Quayle's advisers in 1988 included several European fascist
activists, including Nazi collaborator Laszlo Pasztor, who had served
as junior envoy in Berlin for the Arrow Cross regime in his native
Hungary; Florian Goldau, who had been recruiter for the Romanian Iron
Guard; Bohdan Fedorak, who had headed a Ukranian pro-Nazi group
involved in wartime pogroms; and Croatian-born agitator Jerome
Brentar, a fixture on the Holocaust denial circuit. (4)

Discussing what he would say to Israeli Jews upon arriving in the
middle east in 1993, George W. joked: "[You're all] going to hell."
(5)

Tapes of the Bush Family's long-time spiritual adviser, Billy Graham,
have revealed that Graham used to have vehemently anti-Semitic
conversations with Nixon. For example, Graham blamed "satanic Jews"
for the nation's problems. After agreeing with Nixon that left-wing
Jews dominate the news-media, Graham stated that "They're the ones
putting out the pornographic stuff," and the Jewish "stranglehold has
got to be broken or the country's going down the drain." He also
admitted that "a lot of the Jews are great friends of mine.... But
they don't know how I really feel about what they are doing about
this country." (6)

Whether one is for or against it, the death penalty is a serious
issue. When Karla Faye Tucker was asked, just before her execution,
"What would you say to Governor Bush?" George W. showed the
sensitivity of a Nazi when he mocked her: "Please... don't kill me!"
