I believe we are being re-programmed to accept the new Nazi slant to our government. Torture is o.k. now, so is genocide and invasion of sovereign nations and theft of their resources.

Nazis were often quite cultured and well spoken, enjoying both concentration camps and a night at the opera. They wore nice suits and drove real nice cars and seemed almost human.

And Adolph his ilk, the S.S., the Gestapo, got a lot of bad press and were often portrayed harshly in movies and books. But really, they weren't all that bad, and now we are being re-introduced to the more positive aspects of National Socialism.

Should be an interesting decade.

The little turd from Crawford is merely the front-man for the stooges in power. Check out what Prescott Bush (a Republican) was doing with Averell Harriman (a Democrat). No wonder they let in all them NAZIs after the war to help "spy" on the Soviets:

Bush - Nazi Dealings Continued Until 1951 - Federal Documents

By John Buchanan and Stacey Michael
from The New Hampshire Gazette Vol. 248, No. 3, November 7, 2003

After the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of more than a dozen "enemy national" relationships that continued until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents reveal.

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

Bush's partners in the secret web of Thyssen-controlled ventures included 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, Brown Brothers Harriman.

The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Although the additional seizures under the Trading with the Enemy Act did not take place until after the war, 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 industrial concerns. They went undetected by investigators until after World War Two.
