George H W Bush: The Unauthorized Biography

by Webster Griffin Tarpley and Anton Chaitkin

Executive Intelligence Review Washington, D.C. 1992, paperback


The central project of the George HW Bush presidency is the creation and consolidation of a single, universal Anglo-American (or Anglo-Saxon) empire very directly modeled on the various phases of the Roman Empire.

George HW Bush['s] response to the Gulf crisis of 1991 will be largely predetermined, not by any . great flashes of geopolitical insight, but rather by his connection to the British oligarchy, to [Henry] Kissinger, to Israeli and Zionist circles, to Texas oilmen in his fundraising base, [and] to the Saudi Arabian and Kuwaiti royal houses.

[George HW Bush's father] Prescott Bush became managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman ... ultimately the largest and politically the most important private banking house in America.

In October 1942, ten months after entering World War II, America was preparing its first assault against Nazi military forces. Prescott Bush [George HW Bush's father] was managing partner of Brown Brothers Harriman.

... 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 [Prescott] 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.'

... 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.

... 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.

President [George HW] Bush's family had 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.

... The President's [George HW Bush] family fortune was largely a result of the Hitler project. The powerful Anglo-American family associations, which later boosted him into the Central Intelligence Agency and up to the White House, were his father's partners in the Hitler project.

... Prescott Bush and the other directors of the Union Banking Corp. were legally front men for the Nazis.

Fritz Thyssen and his business partners are universally recognized as the most important German financiers of Adolf Hitler's takeover of Germany. At the time of the order seizing the Thyssen family's Union Banking Corp., Mr. Fritz Thyssen had already published his famous book, "I Paid Hitler" admitting that he had financed Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement since October 1923.

W. Averell Harriman ... became acquainted with Fritz Thyssen, the German industrialist. Harriman and Thyssen agreed to set up a bank for Thyssen in New York.

... The Union Banking Corporation was established formally in 1924, as a unit in the Manhattan offices of W.A. Harriman & Co., interlocking with the Thyssen-owned Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart (BHS) in the Netherlands.

... W.A. Harriman & Co. (alias Union Banking Corporation) would be transferring funds back and forth between New York and the "Thyssen interests" in Germany. By putting up about $400,000, the Harriman organization would be joint owner and manager of Thyssen's banking operations outside of Germany.

Prescott Bush became vice president of W.A. Harriman & Co. in 1926. That same year, a friend of Harriman and Bush set up a giant new organization for their client Fritz Thyssen, prime sponsor of politician Adolf Hitler. The new German Steel Trust, Germany's largest industrial corporation, was organized in 1926 by Wall Street banker Clarence Dillon.

Averell Harriman met with Italy's fascist dictator, Benito Mussolini.

JA representative of the firm subsequently telegraphed good news back to his chief executive Bert Walker: ".. . During these last

The great financial collapse of 1929-31 shook America, Germany and Britain, weakening all governments. It also made the hard-pressed Prescott Bush even more willing to do whatever was necessary to retain his new place in the world. It was in this crisis that certain Anglo-Americans determined on the installation of a Hitler regime in Germany.

W.A. Harriman & Co., well-positioned for this enterprise and rich in assets from their German and Russian business, merged with the British-American investment house, Brown Brothers, on January 1, l931.

Brown Brothers had a racial tradition that fitted it well for the Hitler project... in U.S. Civil War days. Brown Brothers, with offices in the U.S.A. and in England, had carried on their ships fully 75 percent of the slave cotton from the American South over to British mill owners.

In 1931, the virtual dictator of world finance, Bank of England Governor Montagu Collet Norman, was a former Brown Brothers partner, whose grandfather had been boss of Brown Brothers during the U.S. Civil War. Montagu Norman was known as the most avid of Hitler's supporters within British ruling circles.

The Schroeder family of bankers was a linchpin for the Nazi activities of Harriman and Prescott Bush, closely tied to their lawyers Allen and John Foster Dulles.

On March 31, 1933, the American Jewish Committee, controlled by the Warburgs, and the B'nai B'rith, heavily influenced by the Sulzbergers (New York Times), issued a formal, official joint statement of the two organizations, counseling "that no American boycott against Germany be encouraged.

... The American Jewish Committee and the B'nai B'rith (mother of the Anti-Defamation League) continued with this hardline, no-attack-on-Hitler stance all through the 1930s, blunting the fight) mounted by many Jews and other anti-fascists.

... The relationship of George Bush to American Jewish and Zionist leaders ... in close cooperation with his family, played an ugly part in the drama of Nazism.

John Foster Dulles (later to be U.S. Secretary of State) friendship and that of his brother Allen (head of the Central Intelligence Agency), greatly aided Prescott Bush to become the Republican U.S. Senator from Connecticut. And it was to be of inestimable value to George [HW] Bush, in his ascent to the heights of "covert action government," that both of these Dulles brothers were the lawyers for the Bush family's far-flung enterprise.

Throughout the 1930s, John Foster Dulles arranged debt restructuring for German firms under a series of decrees issued by Adolf Hitler. In these deals, Dulles struck a balance between the interest owed to selected, larger investors, and the needs of the growing Nazi war-making apparatus for producing tanks, poison gas, etc.

Private armies of 300,000 to 400,000 terrorists aided the Nazis' rise to power. W.A. Harriman's Hamburg-Amerika Line intervened against Germany's 1932 attempt to break them up.

The 1929-31 economic collapse bankrupted the Wall-Street-backed German Steel Trust... But the Anglo-Americans-Montagu Norman and the Harriman-Bush bank - made sure that their Nazi puppet Fritz Thyssen regained control over the shares and the Trust. Thyssen's bankrolling of Hitler could then continue unhindered.

Virtually all the Nazi trade with the United States was under the supervision of the Harriman interests and functionaries such as Prescott Bush, father of President George [HW] Bush.

The [government] must put the most modern medical means in the service of this knowledge... Those who are physically and mentally unhealthy and unworthy must not perpetuate their suffering in the body of their children .... The prevention of the faculty and opportunity to procreate on the part of the physically degenerate and mentally sick, over a period of only 600 years, would.. . free humanity from an immeasurable misfortune.

The per capita income gap between the developed and the developing countries is increasing, in large part the result of higher birth rates in the poorer countries... Famine in India, unwanted babies in the United States, poverty that seemed to form an unbreakable chain for millions of people - how should we tackle these problems? It is quite clear that one of the major challenges of the 1970s will be to curb the world's fertility.

Shell Oil is principally owned by the British royal family. Shell's chairman, Sir Henri Deterding, helped sponsor Hitler's rise to power, by arrangement with the royal family's Bank of England Governor, Montagu Norman. Their ally Standard Oil would take part in the Hitler project right up to the bloody, gruesome end.

Shell Oil is principally owned by the British royal family. Shell's chairman,

In 1950 and 1951, John Foster Dulles, then chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation, led John D. Rockefeller III on a series of world tours, focusing on the need to stop the expansion of the nonwhite populations. In November 1952, Dulles and Rockefeller set up the Population Council, with tens of millions of dollars from the Rockefeller family.

The International Planned Parenthood Federation was founded in London, in the offices of the British Eugenics Society.

The Union Banking Corporation had been operated on behalf of Nazi Germany by [Prescott] Bush and the Harrimans.

A central focus of the [Averell] Harriman security regime in Washington (1950-53) was the organization of covert operations, and "psychological warfare." Harriman, together with his lawyers and business partners, Allen Dulles and John Foster Dulles, wanted the government's secret services to conduct extensive propaganda campaigns and mass-psychology experiments within the U.S.A., and paramilitary campaigns abroad. This would supposedly ensure a stable world-wide environment favorable to Anglo-American financial and political interests.

The Birth Control League had long trumpeted the need for eugenical births -- fewer births for parents with "inferior" bloodines... The Birth Control League ... chang[ed] its name to Planned Parenthood.

Following the rise of [Fidel] Castro, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] contracted with the organization of Mafia boss Meyer Lansky to organize and train assassination squads for use against the Cuban government.

The present century owes much of its record of horrors to the influential Anglophile American families which came to dominate and employ the Skull and Bones Society [Yale University] as a political recruiting agency, particularly the Harrimans, Whitneys, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and their lawyers, the Lords and Tafts and Bundys.

The politically aggressive Guaranty Trust Company, run almost entirely by Skull and Bones initiates, was a financial vehicle of these families in the early 1900s. Guaranty Trust's support for the Bolshevik and Nazi revolutions overlapped the more intense endeavors in these fields by the Harrimans, George Walker and Prescott Bush [in New York], and in Berlin.

Skull and Bones was dominated from 1913 onward by the circles of Averell Harriman.

The Eastern Establishment ... an agglomeration of financier factions headquartered in Wall Street, had been the dominant force in American politics since J.P. Morgan had bailed out the Grover Cleveland regime in the 1890s. Since the assassination of William McKinley and the advent of Theodore Roosevelt, the power of the Wall Street group had grown continuously. The Eastern Establishment ... was determined to be, not a mere regional financier faction, but the undisputed ruling elite of the United States as a whole.

The most essential level of [Henry] Kissinger was the British one. This meant that U.S. foreign policy was to be guided by British imperial geopolitics in particular the notion of the balance of power.

On May 10, 1982, in a speech entitled "Reflections on a Partnership" given at the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House in London, Henry Kissinger openly expounded his role and philosophy as a British agent-of-influence within the U.S. government during the Nixon and Ford years.

Kissinger was the high priest of imperialism and neocolonialism, animated by an instinctive hatred for Indira Gandhi, Aldo Moro, Zulfikar Mi Bhutto and other nationalist world leaders.

... Kissinger was also a Zionist, dedicated to economic, diplomatic and military support of Israeli aggression and expansionism to keep the Middle East in turmoil, so as to prevent Arab unity and Arab economic development.

During the entire decade of the 1980s, the policies of the Reagan/Bush and [George HW] Bush administrations encouraged one of the greatest paroxysms of speculation and usury that the world has ever seen. Starting especially in the summer of 1982, a malignant and cancerous mass of speculative paper spread through all the vital organs of the banking, credit and financial system. Capital had long since ceased to be used for the creation of new productive plant and equipment, new productive manufacturing jobs, investment in transportation, power systems and education... Wall Street investors came more and more to resemble vampires who ranged over a ghoulish landscape in search of living prey whose blood the could suck to perpetuate their own lively form of death.

... Industrial employment was out, the service sector was in. The post-industrial society meant that the production of tangible, physical wealth, of hard commodities, within U.S. borders was being terminated. The future would belong to parasitical legions of lawyers, financial services experts, accountants, and clerical support . personnel.

For a paper-thin stratum of plutocrats and parasites, the 1980s was a time of unlimited opportunity. These were the practitioners of the disastrous financial swindles that marked the decade, the protagonists of the hostile takeovers, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, greenmail and stock plays that occupied the admiration of Wall Street. These were corporate raiders like J. Hugh Liedtke, Blame Kerr, T. Boone Pickens and Frank Lorenzo; Wall Street financiers like Henry Kravis and Nicholas Brady.

[President Theodore] Roosevelt was a political steward of the J.P. Morgan interests which dominated Wall Street.
