Scoop Link: Newsweek Notes Bush Family's Nazi Tie

The following highly unusual item appeared in the Polish media this week in the wake of coverage of President Bush's tearful visit to Auschwitz.

Bushowie i naziœci
Bushowie i naziœci
Historia

Rodzina Bushów czerpa³a zyski z niewolniczej pracy wiêŸniów obozu koncentracyjnego w Oœwiêcimiu. Prescott Sheldon Bush, dziad prezydenta USA George'a Walkera Busha, podczas II wojny œwiatowej mia³ powi¹zania finansowe z hitlerowcami, dziêki którym pomno¿y³ rodzinn¹ fortunê jako bankier. Prescott Bush by³ kierownikiem i udzia³owcem spó³ki United Banking Corporation, która odkupi³a od nazistowskiego przemys³owca Fritza Thyssena firmê Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation, gdzie pracowali wiêŸniowie pobliskiego Auschwitz. Latem 1942 roku sprawê nag³oœni³a prasa amerykañska, a rz¹d USA zbada³ ksiêgi UBC. 20 paŸdziernika w³adze zajê³y akcje spó³ki na mocy ustawy o handlu z wrogiem, któr¹ prezydent Franklin D. Roosevelt podpisa³ tydzieñ po ataku na Pearl Harbor w grudniu 1941 roku. Spó³ka mog³a dalej funkcjonowaæ, ale z zastrze¿eniem, ¿e jej dzia³alnoœæ nie bêdzie oznaczaæ jakiejkolwiek pomocy nazistom. Dopiero w 1943 roku Prescott Bush wycofa³ siê z UBC, a nawet zaanga¿owa³ siê w zbieranie pieniêdzy dla ofiar wojny jako prezes National War Fund.

It's about time .RU and Europe come liberate the North American people from the Nazis. At least someone has noticed. Finally.

I hope I reach an English-speaking Pole when I say that I am ashamed of our President's remarks at Aushwitz, when indeed his grandfather, Prescott Bush, helped finance the Nazi party. Such arrogance. My heart goes out to your people and your ancestors. Please do not take the hypocrisy of one man to represent the whole of America.

PRESIDENTS BUSH AND FAMILY HAVE MADE A FORTUNE FROM THE MURDERS OF THOUSANDS OF JEWS. BUSH SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HMSELF, HE HAS REAPED THE BENNIFITS OF THE DEATH OF JEWS IS THOSE VERY CAMPS HID GRANDFATHER HELPED TO FINANCE. HIS TRIP TO AUSHWITZ WAS A SLAP IN THE FACE TO JEWS WHO HAVE SURVIVED, BUSH DOESE NOT CARE ABOUT ANY ONE BUT THOSE FROM HIS SECRET SOCIETY.DO NOT FORGET SKULL AND BONES WAS ESTABLISHED IN GERMANY AND ALL THE MEN BEFORE HIM ARE SKULL AND BONES JUST LIKE HIM.

None can push life down. Every seed, seedling, soil wants to reach up for light enough to grow riches enough to share. But the Bush administration assumes erroneously, as did Hitler, that one private self of only one private point of view can push the many down to climb up onto the backs of the many to take from the many to get for the private self. This is wrong. This causes curse:

In nature's law, every action causes an equal and opposite reaction, positive actions causing positive outcomes to lift all up to light slowly enough to produce prosperity......negative actions causing negative reactions, deadly downward tailspins to suck all down easy, cheap, quick.

That is why Bush's "economy" is failing. That is why dictatorships sink.

Why is this article not being published in Newsweek America?

Autor: cranky Data: 02.06.2003 16:55

Thank you, Newsweek Poland for exposing the terrifying fact that Prescott Bush, G.W. Bush's grandfather served on the board of the Union Bank that helped finance the rise of Hitler, the Bush family profiting from slave labor at Auschwitz, which means that the Bush family owes victims of the Holocaust reparations. But I'm sure that Jim Leach, R-Iowa will refuse to investigate.
Frankly, I am embarrassed to be an American now. To me, America represents the dying hope that we can lead the many toward satisfying self-determination, toward "liberty and justice for all," toward freedom from want, to freedom from fear, fright, flight, fight and war,.........a hope sparked by Judaism. But G.W. Bush is crushing that dream, as did Hitler.

I hope that our dying democracy will survive in America, but today,the Federal Communications Commission, that should be protecting the public, will probably decide to allow some secretive few to seize totalitarian control of our cashmedia in a decision that will probably signal the death of our democracy,our ability and will to stand up and speak out relatively freely to help America guide human history out of despair.
Blood stains the remains of so many peoples because they worshiped cash more than life, and I am very saddened that some secretive few are pushing our great nation down into gravity's heavy weights of hate. Stand up and speak out to challenge the negative...We owe it to our children. Remember the children and their children's childrens' ch

The war did not end in 1945--The US and CIA welcomed Nazis with open arms and the goal of the government and the 'secret' corporazi is the same goal that Hitler had-a one world order with one army, one bank, one church, etc., all benefitting the corporazis. Human life meant nothing to them in 1945 and it means even less in 2003. This is not an exclusively Amerikan problem-it is a worldwide problem which portends slavery, poverty and genocide for all who don't kiss the boots of the neo-nazi, fascist corporate greedy warmongers. The US fell to the fascists with the Kennedy murder in 1963. That date marked the END of our republic! We have no country! We have a dictatorship!

Autor: cranky Data: 02.06.2003 17:20

We cannot afford to allow some secretive and cash-driven few dictate totalitarian absolutes of quantity, of empty numbers to the many, crushing the many, the will to live, crushing abilities and wiill to produce positives that any need to produce prosperity of any definition:
We need a new type of economy, an ecoeconomy that values the invaluable, that counts life as much as cash. We need a new type of economy that quantifies quality of logic as much as it qualifies quantities of cash. We need to value nature's lands and worlds and lives' ability to produce enough supplies to carry the many toward a safer future enough to count.
Judaism connects life with land, and we need the teachings of Judaism to help guide us and many toward a safer future enough

I agree with others that this should be published in Newsweek USA! What has happened to freedom of the press in America?

Autor: Data: 02.06.2003 17:34

There is absolutely NO freedom of the press in USA! Americans don't even know that there is a new Gulf War Syndrome. This news was on aol for about 2 minutes and mysteriously disappeared. Americans don't know or seem to care that nukes took down the WTC or that the planes were remote controlled. None of this will be printed by the fascist press! Americans are stupid, comatose, ignorant sheep who believe anything the government tells them and they'll do NOTHING, just go along with the program as the German people did with Hitler. We've murdered our freedoms, our rights and our country!

That's how the fascists take over--they depend on the people to do nothing-they count on it. We are already setting up a death camp at Guantanamo and what do the people say about that? Nothing! The German people were to bame for Auswitz just as the American people are to blame for their own fascist dictatorship that will indeed result in the same kind of mass genocide,

It's time for the Bushes to be brought to justice for the decades of crimes committed against humanity. We are doomed to continue repeating these patterns otherwise.

Autor: polobarnes Data: 02.06.2003 22:30

The Bush-Nazi connection/collaboration/pro
fiteering should have been exposed before the 2000 election. The fact that is wasn't proves that the fascist media whores are complicit in this illegal, unelected government. We, the people demand that you expose these liars, thieves and murderers for who they are. The people are waking up and we will not forget and we will not forgive!

Thank you Newsweek Poland for publishing this and for bringing out the truth. This should be published in Newsweek America. When Bush stole the election in 2000, all the hopes that I have had all my life as a loyal American have been dashed to pieces. I am not wholely of Jewish dessent, but I probably have some Jewish ancestors. It is terrifying to live in America when our leader Bush is from a family who aided and abetted the Holocaust. The first death camp of the Bush admininstration is proposed to be built in Guantanamo Bay Cuba. As an American, I have the right to expect that there will not ever be a holocaust in America, but we are living in fear these days, I am sorry to have to admit.

Do you remember Polanski's "The Pianist"?
In one scene Szpilman's father said ..."we suffer
because of the American Jews, bankers, who do not help us,
who do business".
You want justice? Who would listen to you, to us?
...at least Bush went to Austchwitz-Birkenau and "shaken"
said a few words of acknowledgment of Germans atrocities
against another human fellows!

What about MILLIONS (silent) victims of the communist system
supported by the "western world" ???? during the "cold war'?
Are you there? Are you raised your voice against it?
We, "Yalta Victims" suffered too, until 1989 !!!
Everything in the name of "peaceful co-operation"!!!

I have mix feelings about this article, I would like to see the documents that the author used for his resources. If it is ture, I;m not suprised about Pres. Bush and family I live in Dallas Texas.. Dubba is a crook! He has no consept of what it is like to be poor in my country. He is like an old mule, his cabinet holds a carrot over in front of his face and he will follow it until given another carrot for another direction. God speaks to him, and he is very proud that he keeps his promises to his Big Bussiness friends, who cares if it is at the expense of We the People. We are loosing our Basic freedoms here... If we march we are arrested, the FCC just gave away our air waves to the Four Large Media compamys. Sounds a lot like the Nazis, Doesn't

The bush family is composed of criminals. Even their wives and children are guilty.
Liars, thieves, murderers, no crime is to heinus for them to commit, no act too low, no lie too big. When a bush speaks, look out. The most manipulative people in the USA, even parts of the truth serve their interest, which is to legitemize their lies and actions. bush jr has deleted the freedom of information act and his and his fathgers actions are now secret. the media is co-opted
