Herbert Walker was George "H.W." Bush's grandpa and Prescott Bush was George "H.W." Bush's daddy. They were War Profiteers. Profiting off the suffering of the innocent is the Bush family business.<quoted text>
You don't provide links to truth, only to conjecture.
Prescott Bush is not George Bush. Prescott Bush was never the President. George Bush had nothing to do with this crap.
The Nazi crap is done and over with and those involved were sanctioned. There is NO PROOF of the Bush family and any of the other nonsense you posted. Someone's blog / opinion is not proof.
George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.
There has been a steady internet chatter about the "Bush/Nazi" connection, much of it inaccurate and unfair.
While there is no suggestion that Prescott Bush was sympathetic to the Nazi cause, the documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen's US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.
What these files show is that on October 20 1942 the alien property custodian seized the assets of the UBC, of which Prescott Bush was a director. Having gone through the books of the bank, further seizures were made against two affiliates, the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. By November, the Silesian-American Company, another of Prescott Bush's ventures, had also been seized.
One of the first jobs Walker gave Bush was to manage UBC. Bush was a founding member of the bank and the incorporation documents, which list him as one of seven directors, show he owned one share in UBC worth $125.
There was nothing illegal in doing business with the Thyssens throughout the 1930s and many of America's best-known business names invested heavily in the German economic recovery. However, everything changed after Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Even then it could be argued that BBH was within its rights continuing business relations with the Thyssens until the end of 1941 as the US was still technically neutral until the attack on Pearl Harbor. The trouble started on July 30 1942 when the New York Herald-Tribune ran an article entitled "Hitler's Angel Has $3m in US Bank". UBC's huge gold purchases had raised suspicions that the bank was in fact a "secret nest egg" hidden in New York for Thyssen and other Nazi bigwigs. The Alien Property Commission (APC) launched an investigation.
There is no dispute over the fact that the US government seized a string of assets controlled by BBH - including UBC and SAC - in the autumn of 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy act. What is in dispute is if Harriman, Walker and Bush did more than own these companies on paper.
There are new developments in the case of a former Kennesaw State University student at the center of an illegal immigration controversy.

Their relationship matters not. Neither President was involved in any Nazi dealings.
Prescott's company had its monies taken due to their helping the enemy. They also aren't even sure the Bush family had knowledge of what was going on with the companies providing funds to the Nazis. There's no proof they knew, which is why they weren't prosecuted.
Their knowingly being involved is your opinion, not fact.
I'm still waiting for a valid source of all this drug dealing. The one link you provided was someone's opinion and was actually pretty hilarious, talking about making sure all pregnant women are hooked on Valium by 1950. It's well past 1950, sorry to tell ya!
So show me the court records wherein the Bush family was even accused of such and taken to trial.(P.S. No such records exist.)

I said that the Bush family business was war profiteering. I never said they weren't good at it. Ask Oliver North. He fell on his sword to keep his master's secrets secret.

Why else do they come here? I'm sure they're not here for the immense love that the bigots show them but then again the bigots are not the ones giving them that paycheck. Just think, a days wage in Mexico can be as low as $5 a day. Mexican minimum wage for a week can come out to $25. Come to the USA and you can make minimum wage which pays out $60 buck a day or $300 a week. With that kind of super magnet, these people will forever come to the USA.

Lets not forget old Cheney with the Iraq war. How much did he invested in Haliburton as Defense Secretary and then as Vice President he made sure that Dumba Bush waged war with Iraq.
I cannot see how Rebel doesn't see this shit, is she blind?
Bush Family War Profiteering
Since this war on terror was declared following 9/11, the pay levels for the CEOs of the top 34 defense contractors have doubled. The average compensation rose from $3.6 million during the period of 1998-2001, to $7.2 million during the period of 2002-2005, according to an August 2006, report entitled, "Executive Excess 2006," by the Washington-based, Institute for Policy Studies, and the Boston-based, United for a Fair Economy.
This study found that since 9/11, the 34 defense CEOs have pocketed a combined total of $984 million, or enough, the report says, to cover the wages for more than a million Iraqis for a year. In 2005, the average total compensation for the CEOs of large US corporations was only 6% above 2001 figures, while defense CEOs pay was 108% higher.
But the last name of one family, which is literally amassing a fortune over the backs of our dead heroes, matches that of the man holding the purse strings in the White House. On December 11, 2003, the Financial Times reported that three people had told the Times that they had seen letters written by Neil Bush that recommended business ventures in the Middle East, promoted by New Bridges Strategies, a firm set up by President Bushís former campaign manager, who quit his Bush appointed government job as the head of FEMA, three weeks before the war in Iraq began.
Neil Bush was paid an annual fee to "help companies secure contracts in Iraq," the Times said.
But Neil Bush is by no means the only Bush profiting from the war on terror. The first President Bush is so entangled with entities that have profited greatly that itís difficult to even know where to begin. Bush joined the Carlyle Group in 1993, and became a member of the firmís Asian Advisory Board.
The Carlyle Group was best known for buying defense companies and doubling or tripling their value and was already heavily supported by defense contracts. But in 2002, the firm received $677 million in government contracts, and by 2003, its contracts were worth $2.1 billion.
Prior to 9/11, some Carlyle companies were not doing so well. For instance, the future of Vought Aircraft looked dismal when the company laid off 20% of its employees. But business was booming shortly after the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq began, and the company received over $1 billion in defense contracts.
The Bush familyís connections to the Osama bin Ladenís family seem almost surreal. On September 28, 2001, two weeks after 9/11, the Wall Street Journal reported that, "George H.W. Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international consulting firm."
