Bush Property Seized--Trading with the Enemy

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.@s1

The order seizing the bank `` vests '' (seizes) `` all of the capital stock of Union Banking Corporation, a New York corporation, '' and names the holders of its shares as:


`` E. Roland Harriman--3991 shares ''


`` Cornelis Lievense--4 shares ''


`` Harold D. Pennington--1 share ''


`` Ray Morris--1 share ''




`` Prescott S. Bush--1 share ''


`` H.J. Kouwenhoven--1 share ''


`` Johann G. Groeninger--1 share ''


`` all of which shares are held for the benefit of ... members of the Thyssen family, is property of nationals ... of a designated enemy country.... ''

NOW WHY WAS BUSH FAMILY TRADING STILL WITH THE NAZIS
AFTER THE USA HAD ENTERED A WAR AGAINST NAZI GERMANY ????

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

WHY DID THE BUSH FAMILY NOT STOP TRADING WITH AN ENEMY OF THE USA ?

IS IT NOT TREASON TO TRADE WITH THE ENEMY DURING WAR ???

- - - - - -



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.@s2

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.@s3

These and other actions taken by the U.S. government in wartime were, tragically, too little and too late. President Bush's family had already played a central role in financing and arming Adolf Hitler for his takeover of Germany; in financing and managing the buildup of Nazi war industries for the conquest of Europe and war against the U.S.A.; and in the development of Nazi genocide theories and racial propaganda, with their well-known results.

3. Vesting Orders 259 and 261
http://www.bushnews.com/jews.htm

According to a story in the Albian Monitor,"Prescott Bush, the father of the former President and the grandfather of the current candidate, spent more than a decade helping his father-in-law George Herbert Walker finance Adolf Hitler from the Wall Street bank, Union Banking Corporation. (Union Banking Corp. was eventually seized under the Trading With The Enemy Act. See Office of Alien Property Custodian, Vesting Order No. 248; Filed, November 6, 1942, 11:31 A.M.; 7 Fed. Reg. 9097 (Nov. 7, 1942).) Walker was one of Hitler's most powerful supporters in the United States, and landed Prescott Bush a job as a director at the firm. From 1924 to 1936, Bush's bank invested heavily in Nazi Germany, selling $50 million of German bonds to American investors. In 1934, a congressional investigation believed that Walker's Hamburg-America Line subsidized a wide range of pro-Nazi efforts in both Germany and the United States. One of Walker's employees, Dan Harkins, delivered testimony to Congressional leaders regarding Walker's Nazi sympathies and business transactions. According to US Government Vesting Order No. 248, many of Union Banking's assets had been operated on behalf of Nazi Germany and had been used to support the German war effort.

The U.S. Alien Property Custodian vested the Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares and also issued two other Vesting Orders (nos. 259 and 261) to seize two other Nazi-influenced organizations managed by Bush's bank: Holland American Trading Corporation and Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. Many major firms had dealings with Nazis in the years leading up to World War II, but relatively few engaged in such extended cooperation with Hitler's Germany after Pearl Harbor. (The Secret War Against The Jews by John Loftus and Mark Aarons. New York; St. Martins Press, 1994.) "

7. One share let Prescott Bush be "managing" director
That, along with the amount of money the Bushes got back, after WWII, from the liquidated assets of UBC, tell the story of Bush directing the US laundering of Nazi SS money.

This is a very under-reported link between Prescott Bush and the Nazis. There's another that has Prescott Bush as managing director of a Silesian mining enterprise that benefited from Hitler's invasion of Poland to quash a workers' strike and move the enterprise to forced labor - with the steel obtained being that which built Hitler's initial war machine.

There's a further connection between G.H.W. Bush and the Nazis as he came up in the CIA and the OSS/CIA was recruiting former Nazi spies across Europe.

And then there's the connection to G.H.W. Bush's presidential campaign having former Nazis on it, being managed by G.W. Bush.

And then there's the blind trust connection. The money G.H.W. Bush used to fund his political aspirations was built out of the money Prescott Bush got from the liquidated assets of UBC, itself built out of laundering Nazi SS money.

Whether you believe any of this stuff or not, you really ought to read more about it. It's fascinating to contemplate the connection with a family, the scion of which (G.W. Bush) was heard to utter at Auschwitz, "Do people doubt the truthfulness of what you tell them?"

8. Quietly in 1998, Ford Motor Company while responding to allegations
that during WWII Ford's German subsidiary Ford-Werke used forced labor from Auschwitz to produce armored vehicles for the Nazis agreed to pay $13M into a compensation fund for Nazi era slave laborers and $4M into the promotion of human rights projects.

The Bushes continue to hold most of the bloodmoney from Prescott
