In the United States, anyone can grow up to be President--even the son and the grandson of a man who did business with the Nazis during WWII--and whoÂ planned to overthrow the government in a coupÂ in 1933, which has been called "the biggest peacetime threat to American democracy."
Yes, George W.Â Bush is the grandson of Prescott Bush, a veryÂ shady character to say the least. Here's a little history...
In 1933, Prescott Bush, along with a group of other wealthy families (owners of corporations such as Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea and Maxwell House) believed thatÂ the United States should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression. To that end, they planned a coup to topple Franklin Delano Rooselvelt from office and to take over the country. There is a documentaryÂ which tells the story of this attempted coup. It is available onÂ the BBC webÂ site:
The program also mentions Prescott Bush's directorship of the Hamburg-America Line, a company that was investigated for Nazi propaganda activities. Although this plan was foiled, Prescott Bush would go on to help the Nazis in a different way.
Six days after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, President Roosevelt signed the "Trading With the Enemies Act" after it became public that there were companies doing business with the declared enemy of the United States. AboutÂ ten months later, the U.S. ordered seizure of the Union Banking Corporation for doing business with the Germans. Prescott Bush was a director and Prescott's father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, was the President. The assets of the company were held by the U.S. until the end of the war, at which time they were returned. When the company was dissolved, Prescott Bush was reimbursed $1,500,000 which was then used to fund the Bush family investments in the oil industry.
So now you have a little history of the Bush family. I encourage you to doÂ some research yourself as there are also ties to the bin Laden family.
