Fascist Coup d'Etats
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.

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.
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
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
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. 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.
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
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
