Pattern Lost In The Noise

History has a strange way of repeating itself. It could be said that 'We' as people of the good earth, have an innate tendancy to our echo past experiences.... until we learn not to...

Easier said than done eh?!

I wonder how many people have read or heard about Prescott Bush? He's the current USA president's (Dubya) grandfather, and to put it bluntly.... he worked for the Nazis. He made the Nazi party a lot of money. He also made the Bush family a fortune too.

In 1942, Congress seized the assets of Prescott Bush and charged him with trading with the enemy. Bush and his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, were managing directors of the Union Banking Corp. of New York City. Allied with Brown Brothers Harriman, the largest private investment bank in the world, Bush and Walker were front men for Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen.

Thyssen, whose empire was founded on coal and steel, financed the rise of Adolf Hitler. Then as now, cloaking funds destined for subversion of democracies or weapons shipment was a useful tactic. To hide transactions and conceal ownership, Thyssen created a banking network. The first node was established in Berlin, a second in neutral Holland. UBC in New York was the linchpin.

The facts of the matter are... that the Bush family made it's money from funding the Nazi's. If you connect the dots, it's not difficult to see a repeating pattern here... Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran??

The Bush family have made millions from the suffering of others. War profiteering is the name of the game.

I'm not surprised if many folks know these facts though. It's not as if the media will shout it, or someone from the press-corps would ask President Bush about it at a white-house meeting?

Despite this history, the news media continue to present a selective picture of the Bush family and its business connections. People who tried to show the warts were shouted down; in 2000, St. Martin's Press, the first publisher of "Fortunate Son," a George W. Bush biography, was forced to recall and destroy
its inventory.

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.... I'll leave this short reprise with this;

According to Bob Woodward's "Bush At War," the president attended a New York Yankees game not long after the 9/11 attacks. Wearing a New York City fireman's jacket, Bush threw out the first pitch and the crowd roared its approval. From a skybox above the stadium, Karl Rove, Bush's political adviser, likened the roar of the crowd to "a Nazi rally."
