BBC: Prescott Bush co-conspirator in coup plot against FDR

July 25, 2007

An email brings a link to a radio program at the BBC on an attempted coup during the Roosevelt presidency:

The Whitehouse Coup, BBC: Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by right-wing American businessmen The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell House and George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression. Mike Thomson investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat to American democracy.

*** The_Plot_to_Sieze_the_White_House_by_Jules_Archer az=printer_friendly&forum=364&topic_id=2149259

From these books a timeline can be constructed:
1929 Wall Street interests send Hitler $10,000,000.
1931 Wall Street sends Hiltler another $15,000,000.
1933 Wall Street Sends Hitler a final $7,000,000. (total $32,000,000.)
1933 Wall Street puts up initial $3,000,000, backed by another reserve $15,000,000, for the Plot to Seize the White House. Up to $300,000,000 backing is promised. channelid=105&contentid=525&page=2

Baron Kurt von Schroder and Johann Groeninger (a partner of Prescott Bush) were directors of a Thyssen foundry, while von Schroder was also treasurer of a group that raised money to arm the Nazi Party. (24) He and Hjalmar Schacht, son of an Equitable Trust executive, together made the final arrangement for Hitler to enter the government at the Berlin office of Shroder Bank on January 4, 1933 -- a meeting attended by John Foster Dulles and Allen W. Dulles of the New York law firm, Sullivan and Cromwell, which represented the Schroder Bank. Von Schroder was also vice president and director of the Hamburg-Amerika Line and sent his grandson to New York to tour Brown Brothers Harriman offices in December 1932 - -on the eve of Hitler's ascension.


A founding director of both the Union Banking Corp. and the American Ship and Commerce Corp.--Samuel Pryor-- was executive committee chairman of Remington Arms (bought in 1933 by Du Pont, legal owner of the building at 120 Broadway).

The U.S. Senate arms-traffic committee investigated Remington Arms, a member of an explosives cartel with I.G. Farben and found that the Nazis and other German political groups were nearly all armed with American guns, which were shipped from America to the Antwerp harbor and transshipped by river barges and carried through Holland without police interference.

Pryor and his son-in-law, Joseph Reed (an employee at Brown Brothers Harriman), had developed the exclusive and super-secret residential enclave called Jupiter Island in Florida, inhabited by Harriman, Bush, and Skull and Bones associates, as described in Tarpley and Chaitkin's "Unauthorized Biography of George Bush."


In 1980, when George H.W. Bush was elected vice president, he placed his father's family inheritance in a blind trust. The trust was managed by his old friend and quail hunting partner, William "Stamps" Farish III. Bush's choice of Farish to manage the family wealth is quite revealing in that it demonstrates that the former president might know exactly where some of his inheritance originated.

Farish's grandfather, William Farish Sr., on March 25th, 1942, pleaded "no contest" to conspiring with Nazi Germany while president of Standard Oil in New Jersey. He was described by Senator Harry Truman in public of approaching "treason" for profiting off the Nazi war machine. Standard Oil, invested millions in IG Farben, which opened a gasoline factory within Auschwitz in 1940.

General Butler claimed that the American Liberty League was the primary means of funding the plot. The main backers were the Du Pont family, as well as leaders of U.S. Steel, General Motors, Standard Oil, Chase National Bank, and Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. A BBC documentary claims Prescott Bush, father and grandfather to the 41st and 43rd US Presidents respectively, was also involved.

The events testified to in the McCormack-Dickstein Committee happened between July and November 1933. The Committee began examining evidence a year later, on November 20, 1934. On November 24 the committee released a statement detailing the testimony it had heard about the plot and its preliminary findings. On February 15, 1935, the committee submitted to the House of Representatives its final report.[9] The McCormack-Dickstein Committee was the precursor to the former House Committee on Un-American Activities (HUAC); its materials are archived with those of the HUAC.

The committee deleted extensive excerpts from the report relating to Wall Street financiers including J. P. Morgan, the Du Pont interests, Remington Arms, and others allegedly involved in the plot attempt. As of 1975, a full transcript of the hearings had yet to be traced.

The American Liberty League banquet marked the opening of their hate campaign of propaganda to defeat the reelection of Roosevelt in 1936. The Scripps-Howard Press and its United Press wire service, an exception to the rabidly anti-Roosevelt newspaper chains, rushed to the President's defense.

Following through on Butler's exposé, their papers carried a story headlined: "Liberty League Controlled by Owners of $37 Billion". Directors of the League were identified as also being directors of U.S. Steel, General Motors, Standard Oil, Chase National Bank, Goodyear Tire, and Mutual Life Insurance Company. Liberal senators joined the attack.

On January 23rd Senator Shwellenbach denounced "J. Pierpont Morgan and John J. Raskob and Pierre du Pont and all the rest of these rascals and crooks who control the American Liberty League." Senator Robert M. La Follette, Jr., pointed out that the league's biggest contributors were the DuPonts, A. P. Sloan [CEO, Ford Motor Co., implanted as CEO after the du Pont family buys a huge share of Ford; Sloan eventually leaves Ford Motor Co. just as duPont family pulls out its investments, similar as when he was put in when they invested], the Pews [of Pew Charitable Trust], E. T. Weir, Sewell Avery, and John J. Raskob, and declared, "It is not an organization that can be expected to defend the liberty of the masses of the American people. It speaks for the vested interests."

to Prescott are very clear. Remember that the Remington rifles that the Brownshirts marched with in Germany in 1933, were shipped to Germany by the Walker side of the family. Prescott/Harriman shipping steel to Germany, Union Bank. Etc. Prescott has enough criminal activity that has been well documented, that I don't worry about making a direct connection from Prescott to Butler.

And yes, there were a few folks... Buckeye steel... in the Bush Walker clan that weren't willing to do all that nasty shit that the others deemed so necessary.
Nothing to do with the GOP that time

They pick the party that will give them the most leverage. At the time, it was the Democratic Party. az=show_mesg&forum=203&topic_id=449551&mesg_id=449568

John J. Raskob

John Jakob Raskob (1879-1950) was a financial executive and businessman for DuPont, General Motors, and the builder of the Empire State Building. Outside of his business life, he became chairman of the Democratic National Committee and was key supporter of Alfred E. Smith's candidacy for President of the United States. After Franklin D. Roosevelt became President, Raskob became a prominent opponent of the New Deal through his support of a number of anti-Roosevelt organization including the American Liberty League. Raskob was also a leader in the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment.

Raskob was also the Treasurer of the Knights of Malta in the US. The plot was a conspiracy conceived by the Knights of Malta** to take control of the US Government.

At about the same time, another Knight of Malta, Fritz Von Papen convinced Hindenburg to appoint Hitler as Chancellor of Germany.

The American branch of the Knights of Malta was founded in 1927. **Three CIA directors have been members. Reinhard Gehlen was one, as was Wild Bill Donovan. William Casey and John McCone were members, as well as Allen Dulles ... Donovan was friends with Cardinal Spellman, from when he had a law firm in New York. Other members: Prescott Bush, J. Edgar Hoover, Father Coughlin, Charles J. Bonaparte, William F. Buckley Jr, J. J. Raskob, Joe Kennedy ...
