U.S. Federal Documents Reveal:

"Bush-Nazi Dealings Continued Until 1951"


New Hampshire Gazette
Vol. 248, No. 3, November 7, 2003

Dear reader:

In conjunction with the speech by Stalin in 1941 on Red Square, we publish this expose which shows clearly that the US spearheaded the drive to help Nazi Germany attack the Soviet Union, and all through the war the Imperialists of US, Britain, Japan and other countries helped Hitler with armaments, raw materials, food, technology and experts – all geared towards eliminating the first socialist state and thus divide thus largest country in the word between themselves.

The Bush family in the USA, grandfather, father and son were and are involved in supporting the fascist cause and imperialist expansion.

Read this and pass it on!

" After the seizure in late 1942 of five US corporations, that Bush managed on behalf of the Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the father of former US president George Bush and grandfather of the present US president George W. Bush, failed to divert himself of more than a dozen "enemy national" relationships that continued cooperating with Nazi Germany in all aspects, until as late as 1951 – the "Cold War era", the newly-discovered US government documents reveal.

Furthermore, the records show that Bush and his colleagues routinely attempted to conceal their activities from US government investigators.

Bush’s partners in this secret web of Nazi Thyssen-controlled ventures included the former New York Governor W. Averell Harriman and his younger brother E. Roland Harriman. Their quarter-century of Nazi financial transactions, from 1924-1951, were conducted by the New York private banking firm of Brown Brothers, Harriman.

The White House did not return our telephone calls, seeking comment.

Although the additional seizures under the Trading with the Enemy Act did not take place until after the war, (due to very heavy lobbying and pressure exerted by Bush and Co. (and keeping hush about the import of Nazi war criminals from Hitler’s secret service into the US and its CIA – Editor) documents from the National Archives and Library of Congress confirm that Bush and his partners continued their Nazi dealings unabated. These activities included a financial relationship with the German city of Hanover and several large industrial complexes. They went undetected by the investigators until after the end of World War Two.

At the same time Bush and the Harrimans were profiting from their Nazi partnerships, W. Averell Harriman was serving as President Delano Roosevelt’s personal emissary to the United Kingdom during the toughest years of the war. On October 28, 1942, the same day that two key Bush-Harriman-run businesses were being seized by the US government, Harriman was meeting in London with Field Marshall Smuts to discuss the war effort.

Denial and Deceit

While Harriman was concealing his Nazi relationship from his government colleagues, Cornelius Livense, the top executive of the interlocking German Nazi concerns, held under the corporate umbrella of Union Banking Corporation (UBC), he repeatedly tried to mislead investigators, and was sometimes supported in this subterfuge by Brown Brothers Harriman Bank.

All of the assets of UBC and its related businesses belonged to Thyssen-controlled enterprises, including his Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart in Rotterdam, the documents show.

Nevertheless, Livense, president of UBC, claimed that he has no knowledge of such relationship. "Strangely enough (Livense) claims that he does not know the actual ownership of the company of which he was the president," states the government report.

H.D. Pennington, manager of Brown Brothers Harriman and a director of the UBC "for many years" also lied to the investigators about the secret and well-concealed relationship with the Thyssen’s Dutch Bank, according to the documents. Investigators later reported that this company was "wholly owned" by Thyssen’s Dutch Bank.

Despite this ongoing subterfuge, US investigators were able to show that "a careful examination of UBC’s general ledger, cash books and journals from 1919 until the present day, clearly establishes that the principal and practically only source of funds had been the Bank voot Hanfdel en Scheepvaart".

In yet another attempt to mislead the US investigators, Livense said that $240,000 banknotes in a safe deposit box at the Underwriters Trust Co. in New York had been given to him by another UBC-Thyssen associate, H.J. Kouwenhoven, the managing director of Thyssen’s Dutch bank and a director of the August Thyssen Bank in Berlin. August Thyssen was Fritz’s father.

The US government report shows that Livense first neglected to report the $240,000, then claimed that it had been given to him, but later changed his mind again and reported the sum as a debt rather than a cash holding.

In yet another attempt to deceive the governments of both the US and Canada, Livense and his partners misreported that facts about the sale of a Canadian Nazi front enterprise, La Cooperative Catholique des Consommateurs de Combustible, which imported German coal during the war years into Canada via the web of Thyssen-controlled US businesses.

"The Canadian authorities, however, were not taken in by this maneuver," a US government report states. This coal company was later seized by the Canadian authorities.

After the war, due to a huge outcry by organizations and people in general, a total of 18 additional Brown Brothers Harriman and UBC-related enterprises and assets were seized under The Trading with the Enemy Act, including many that kept on trading with Nazi Germany after the 1942 seizures.

The records also show that Bush and Harriman conducted businesses with the Nazis by moving assets into Switzerland, Panama, Argentina and Brazil – all critical outposts for fleeing Nazi war criminals, assisted by the US secret services, not only of all these criminals, but also of their hoarded multibillion assets. Fritz Thyssen died a very rich man in Argentina in 1951. Thyssen was the chief financial supporter of Nazism and Hitler, and was also a member of the inner circle of the Hitler and the SS.

One of the final seizures, in October of 1950, concerned the US assets of a Nazi Baroness, named Theresa Maria Ida Benedikta Huberta Stanislava Martina von Schwarzenberg, who was involved with Brown Brothers Harriman, where Prescott Bush was a big and influential partner - she and they tried to convince the US government investigators, that the Baroness has been a victim of Nazi persecution and therefore should be allowed to maintain all of her assets. "It is a known fact that this Baroness was a member of the German Nazi Party" government investigators found out.

In spite of all of these revelations Prescott Bush announced his Senate campaign and was elected to the US Congress in 1952.

Investigation Investigated?

In 1943 after the seizure of the UBC and all of their other related companies, a US government investigator noted in a Treasury Department memo, dated April 8, 1943 that the FBI was starting to investigate the investigators who were then investigating the tie-in between the Bush family and the Nazis.

Thus, there was no official action taken against any of these Nazi-lovers beyond the initial seizure of their assets, which, as is now known, were duly registered under dummy companies and the Bush family and the Brown Brothers Harriman are still reaping dividends. The newly confirmed records that exposed these dealings and traitorous acts went unseen by the American people for Sixty Years!

What Does It All Mean?

So, why are the documents relevant today?

"The history of Prescott Bush and Brown Brothers Harriman is an introduction to the real history of our country", says L.A. Art Book publisher and historian Edward Boswell. "It exposes the money-making motives behind the US foreign policies, dating back a full century. The ability of Prescott Bush and the Harriman’s to bury their checkered past, also reveals a collusion between Wall Street, the media and the government that exists to this day."

The proof is evident that the Bush dynasty is still profiteering from all US inspired wars, with George H.W. Bush intimate relationship with the Saudi royal family, with bin Laden, conducted via the super-secret Carlyle Group, whose senior advisors include the former US Secretary of State, James A. Baker III.

Lawrence Lader, an abortion activist and author of more than 40 books, said: "the relevance of the facts listed above, is the fact that the sitting President of the United States leads a nation to war on lies and against the wishes of the rest of the world." He also draws comparison between Hitler’s occupation of Poland in 1939 and Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

However, others see a more sinister and larger significance.

"The discovery of the Bush-Nazi documents raises new questions about the role of Prescott Bush and his influential business partners in the secret immigration of Nazi war criminals, which allowed them to escape justice in Germany," says Bob Fertil, a co-founder of Democrats.com and an amateur Nazi hunter. "It also raises questions about the importance of Nazi recruits into the CIA in its early years, in what was called "Operation Paperclip" and Prescott Bush’s role in that dark operation." Top lawmakers in the USA believe that these people should have been tried for treason.

What Next?

Fertik and Loftus and many others says that there should be a Congressional investigation into the Bush’s family connections with Nazism and its concealment from the American public for sixty years.

"The American people have a right to know, in detail, about this hidden chapter of our history. That’s the only way we can understand it and compare it to the present policies of the Bush administration."

Fertik and others are pessimistic that "even a US Congressional investigation can thwart the war profiteering of the Bush dynasty in the White House. It seems that it is impossible without a big upheaval, since the worst war profiteers are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, who operate in secrecy behind the vast powers of the White House."
