PART 2 OF 2THE BROTHERHOOD
After Hitler came to power, his dreaded terrorist organization, the SS was unleashed upon the German people (3,5,6). The SS was not just a terrorist organization, but deeply involved in spying and espionage as well as business. Other long range goals was to establish monopolies not only in Germany, but in all the countries it conquered (6). Himmler's dreaded SS, had a lot of friends in the business world who also hoped to benefit from the spoils. They gave him and his SS incredible sums of money, making them, so to speak, stockholders in his money-making terrorist organization.
The Hamburg-Amerika line, which was directed by Prescott Bush, not only contributed money and helped to distribute Nazi propaganda in the U.S. and Germany, but it was also one of the official "Friends ofthe Reichsfuhrer SS" (6) -- also known as "The Order" and the "Brotherhood of Death."
Like its American counterpart, the "Order of Skull and Bones" the German "Order" was dedicated to making money, and recruited its membership from the aristocracy and the moneyed elite.HITLER AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF DEATH
In 1922, Averell Harriman. an alumni of Skull and Bones (Class of 1913), made a pilgrimage to Germany. But Hamburg wasn't the lure. It was Berlin-the ancestral home of Skull and Bones. the Brotherhood of Death. Indeed. various members of The Order of Skull and Bones had been making pilgrimages to Germany and the University of Berlin since the inception of the American chapter of the Brotherhood of Death (17). Harriman was a dedicated "Bonesman."
According to his third wife, Pamela, Averell "Harriman regularly went back to the tomb (the Bone's Temple) on High Street. once even lamenting that his duties as chief negotiator at the Paris Peace Talks prevented him from attending a reunion" (25).
While in Berlin he made contact with Fritz Thyssen, also, allegedly, a member of a Germany-based secret society: though which one, of course, is a secret.
A number of German secret societies were in existence at the time, such as the Illuminati of Bavaria and the Thule Society. These secret societies counted rich industrialists, mystics. aristocrats. bankers and high ranking military men among their members (26).
In the early 1920s, when Harriman paid his visit to Germany. the membership of the Thule Society included Dietrich Eckart, Rudolf Hess, and Heinrich Himmler (27) all of whom were directly associated with Adolf Hitler, and all of whom became Nazi leaders (3.5). The secret society that had anointed Hitler as its leader, would later become known to the world as the SS -- The Brotherhood of Death (6).
Although it cannot be proved. there is evidence to suggest that Himmler's SS. and its American counterpart. Skull and Bones. were one and the same and directly linked with the Thule Society or the Illuminati. In fact (and as will be detailed later in this chapter), some of the occult rituals that were said to be part of the initiation into the Thule Society and the SS (27). are similar to those that are said to be practiced by initiates into the American chapter of the Brotherhood of Death, that is. Skull and Bones (17,28).
For example. both employ initiation ceremonies in which the initiate "dies to the world and be born again into the Order ..." (29). In October of 1988 then Vice-President George H.W. Bush was asked by a reporter if he were "a Christian." At first Bush seemed confused by the question, but then said, "if you mean born again, then, yes, I am a Christian."
In his book, Mein Kampf (7) and in some of his speeches, Hitler also refers to being born again, that is "born anew." Likewise, George Bush Jr., refers to himself as "born again" and freely admits he was "honored" to be chosen to be a member of Skull and Bones. As reported in the August 7, 2000 issue of Time magazine, Bush was asked: "Did you have any qualms, say, about joining an elite secret club like Bones?" Bush replied, "No qualms at all. I was honored."
The motto of Hitler's SS begins as follows: "It is an honor to be an SS man. It is an honor ..." (6).
The leaders of the Thule Society also believed it to be an honor to have inducted Hitler into the mysteries of its secret order (27). In 1919, Dietrich Eckart, a leading member of the Thule Society, met Adolf Hitler for the first time. Eckhart believed that Hitler was the German "Messiah ... the long-awaited savior" who would lead Germany to her destiny. Eckhart took Hitler under his wing and initiated Hitler into the mysteries of the secret order: "Follow Hitler; he will dance, but it is I who have called the tune. I have initiated him into the Secret Doctrine, opened his centers of vision, and given him the means to communicate with the powers" (27).
Hitler, in turn, referred to Eckhart as the "spiritual founder of' the Nazi party (7). In Table Talk (7) Hitler says of the man: "We've all taken a step forward on the road of existence, and we could no longer picture to ourselves exactly what Dietrich Eckart was for us. He shone in our eyes like the polar star." In the final paragraphs of Mein Kampf (7), Hitler says of Eckart, "he was one of the best, who devoted his life to the awakening ..."
Prominent members of Thule also included Rudolf Hess. Fritz Thyssen, who Harriman visited in 1922, reports that it was Hess who introduced him to Adolf Hitler. Thyssen too, thought Hitler would be the savior of Germany (30). Like the Bonesmen, Thyssen believed that the New World Order would be ruled by the kings of banking and commerce.THE BANKING BROTHERHOOD
Thyssen and Harriman agreed to establish a banking association. and two years later. in 1924 the W.A. Harriman Co .. established an international investment firm. "Union Banking Corporation," which was in business with the Thyssens (31). Bert Walker's son, George Herbert Walker, was made president (24).
As detailed by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin in their superbly documented book. George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography, " by personal agreement between Averell Harriman and Fritz Thyssen in 1922... the Union Banking Corporation has since its inception handled funds chiefly supplied to it through the Dutch bank by the Thyssen interests for American investment.. .. transferring funds back and forth between New York and the Thyssen interests."
The Union Banking Corporation and the Thyssen bank also acted as Nazi fronts and served to launder funds for Thyssen and the Nazis -- money and funds that could be used to buy guns, arms, favorable publicity. and dozens of U.S. senators, congressman, and newspaper editors (12).
"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. Dillon was an old comrade of Prescott Bush's father Sam Bush" (24).
Thyssen went into business with Harriman for the same reasons he went into business with Hitler, to increase his wealth and power. It is unlikely that Thyssen did not inform Harriman of his intention of helping Hitler come to power. Indeed. Fritz Thyssen was Adolf Hitler's primary financial backer and had been providing considerable financial support to Hitler and the Nazis, since 1923 (30). At their first meeting, Thyssen gave the new "German Messiah," $25,000. At the same time, Thyssen and Harriman were also making big plans, some of which were dependent on Hitler coming to power.
As Thyssen explained (30): "We were at the worst time of the inflation. In Berlin the government was in distress. It was ruined financially. Authority was crumbling. In Saxony a communist government had been formed and the Red terror, organized by Max Hoelz, reigned through the countryside. The German Reich ... was now about to crumble."
Thyssen states that it was General Erich Ludendorff who first told him of Hitler and that Hess made the introductions. In 1923, General Erich Ludendorff was also the chief patron of Hitler's SA -- which, because it had been outlawed by the German government, had been renamed "Frontbann" (6). The SA ("Frontbann") was a terrorist organization, which counted among its members, Heinrich Himmler.
Thyssen admits that he was mesmerized by Hitler (30). "I realized his orator gifts and his ability to lead the masses. What impressed me most however was the order that reigned over his meetings, the almost military discipline of his followers."
In 1924, after his meetings with Hitler, Fritz Thyssen sent Hendrick J. Kouwenhoven, the managing director of his bank, to meet with the Harriman-Walker clique. It was after that meeting that the Union Banking Corporation was established.
In 1926 George Walker made his son-in-law Prescott Bush, vice-president of Harriman & Co. and president of Union Banking (24). The Thyssen banking relationship was expanded to include partnerships in the new German Steel Trust, Germany's largest industrial corporation, which was also headed by Fritz Thyssen, Adolf Hitler's primary financial backer.
According to the United States Government, Prescott Bush's Union Banking Corporation (which he directed) was working as a front for the "Thyssen family" of '"Germany ... nationals ... of a designated enemy country" (31).
As summed up by John Loftus, former U.S. Department of Justice Nazi War Crimes prosecutor, and the President of the Florida Holocaust Museum: "Thyssen (and the Nazi Party) obtained" his "early financing from Brown Brothers Harriman, and its affiliate, the Union Banking Corporation. Union Bank, in turn, was the Bush family's holding company for a number of other entities, including the Holland American Trading Company. The Bush's Union Bank bought the same corporate stock that the Thyssens were selling as part of their Nazi money laundering."
These Nazi-front companies, "Brown Brothers. Harriman" and "Union Banking Corporation." were controlled almost entirely by men who belonged to the American chapter of "Skull and Bones" (32).
Prescott Bush and associates, and Standard Oil, also provided loans, executive expertise, and petroleum-related products to IG Farben (12). IG Farben used that expertise to develop poison gas and petroleum to drive the Nazi war machine. and to run its slave labor and death-camps. the most notorious of which was Auschwitz where 83.000 people worked as slaves.
It is estimated that in the concentration camps alone. Himmler's SS, worked to death and killed over 10 million men and women (6). A favored method of killing was using a special gas developed by IG Farben.
As detailed in chapter 2, Prescott Bush and Harriman were also in business with several other leading Nazis. such as Friedrich Flick who later became Hitler's minister of the Interior, as well as IG. Farben, the company that developed the poison gas to kill Russians, gypsies, and Jews. Like Harriman and Bush, Flick was a member of The Order (6). The Flick-Harriman partnership was managed by Prescott Bush (see chapter 2).
According to a U.S. government brief presented in 1946 at the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal. industrialist Friedrich Flick, was "a leading financial contributor to the Nazi Party from 1932 on and a member of the Circle of Friends of Himmler who contributed large sums to the Nazi SS."
The "Circle of Friends" is also known as the "Friends of the Reichsfuhrer SS." The Hamburg-Amerika line, which was directed by Prescott Bush. was also counted among the Friends of the Reichsfuhrer SS (6) -- also known as "The Order" and the "Brotherhood of Death."
Frick joined this most secretive and powerful of societies in 1932. By contrast, Prescott Bush and the Harriman brothers (W.A. and E.R) joined the American chapter of The Order, in 1917, 1913, and 1917, respectively, long before Hitler had taken the first steps on his long road to power. They were all part of the same brotherhood, however. Indeed. be it the Thule Society, the SS, or the American version of "The Order," all sprouted from the same German roots.THE BROTHERHOOD OF DEATH
The evil, diabolic symbolism of Skull and Bones is designed to stir feelings of terror and to warn of death which is why it appears on bottles of poison and has been the symbol of choice for pirates and death squads. It is precisely because it is designed to induce terror that the symbol of the death head became the talisman worn on the black uniforms of Adolf Hitler's Nazi elite: The Order -- the dreaded SS, the Brotherhood of Death.
The Bonesman of Yale shared not just the symbolism of the Skull and Bones with the SS Nazi elite, but practiced many of the same exact initiation rituals and recruited their elite members from the same strata of society.
Like the Bonesmen of Yale, the Nazi SS recruited its members from the upper echelons of society, i.e. the blue bloods, bankers, and aristocrats. As detailed by Heinz Hohns (6), "the first arrivals were from the aristocracy. Even before the Nazi seizure of power certain great names had been added to the SS list" including Grand Dukes, Counts, and Princes. However, "in spring 1933 came a further infusion of blue blood. Many of the senior SS posts were occupied by the nobility ... and the ruling class elite. The primary requirements in the SS, were money and officer material, and they could come only from one source -- the old-established ruling class elite -- the nobility, the world of commerce and the financiers ... German's captains of industry."
There were, however, different ranks within the SS. Those who were to belong to the highest ranks underwent an initiation ceremony similar to that of the Order of Skull and Bones at Yale.
As detailed in Heinz Hohn's, The Order of the Death's Head (6), initiates into the SS underwent an occult-like quasi-religious midnight ceremony involving oath-taking, question and answer confessions, and prayer-like sessions, all of which were designed to impress upon the initiate that he was able to become a "knight" and a member of a secret brotherhood.
The ceremony took place at midnight, in a castle, beneath the dining hall where there lay "a stone crypt" and "the realm of the dead" (6). "A flight of steps in the middle of the crypt led down into a well-like cavity; in the centre of the cavity were twelve stone pedestals." Bones and relics, including the skull and skeleton of noble men and kings were also kept within the "holy of holies" including the bones of "King Heinrich."
Initiates would thus commune with the spirits of the dead, who might appear and even speak. The initiate into the SS, by undergoing this spiritual journey, would also be reborn, as a knight, and a member of the secret order (6).
Likewise. we are informed that initiates into Yale's The Order, were required to undergo an array of "exotic and occult" "bonding rituals" including a quasi-religious midnight ceremony which involved question and answer confessions that took place while the initiate lay in a coffin (17,29).The ceremony took place in castle, at midnight, in "the tomb."
As explained by Ron Rosenbaum (29) while lying in the "coffin" the initiates goes "off on a symbolic journey through the underworld to rebirth, which takes place in Room Number 322
. There, the Order clothes the newborn knight in its own special garments, implying that, henceforth, he will tailor himself to the Order's mission" (p. 89, 148).
The Castle walls of Himmler's SS headquarters, were heavily decorated with Nazi symbols and regalia.Likewise, based on several independent reports by those who visited the Skull and Bones' Yale Castle -- what Bones initiates call "the Tomb" -- some of the walls and rooms are covered with Nazi symbols and regalia, including swastikas, and "SS macho Nazi iconography." One visitor described a room with "a little Nazi shrine inside" (17,18).
In yet another room of the Order of Skull and Bones, one visitor observed "mantelpieces decorated with loads of skulls." She and others have been told "that in order to prove their mettle and perhaps to bond them in mutual guilt over participation in an illicit act, each class of 15 new initiates to Skull and Bones are required to dig up the skull of a famous person and bring it to the Tomb to be enshrined in its skull collection" (17,18).
Like the SS, The Order of Skull and Bones is also known as the Brotherhood of Death. And we are told, initiates into the SS and The Order of Skull and Bonesm are required to say the words: "It is an honor..."
When George W. Bush was asked, "Did you have any qualms, say, about joining an elite secret club like Bones?" Bush replied, "I was honored" (33).
The identical symbolism and use of similar language is not just coincidence. In fact, Prescott Bush and several of his fellow Bonesmen, felt such an affinity with Nazi terrorist ideals, that they helped arm Hitler's SS and the Nazi terrorist war machine.
However, Bush and his partners in banking and oil, did not link up with Hitler and his SS just because of shared ideology but because of money, oil, and an unquenchable thirst for power.THE OIL BROTHERHOOD
As the 1932 presidential elections began, Hitler and the Nazi party were almost broke. They were desperate for funds. And then, after meeting with the captains of industry, Hitler was suddenly flush with cash.
According to Hitler's vice-Chancellor, Franz von Papen (34), "the most documented account of the National Socialists' sudden acquisition of funds was contained in a book published in Holland in 1933." It was published "by the old established Amsterdam publishing house of Van Holkema & Warendorf, called De Geldbronnen van Het Nationaal-Socialisme (Orie Gesprekken Met Hitler) under the name "Sidney Warburg."
In that book, "The Financial Sources of National Socialism" it is claimed that Hitler's rise to power was aided directly by Wall Street bankers, industrialists, and oil companies, including Standard Oil, and John O. Rockefeller, who contributed $32,000,000 between the years 1929 to 1932.
In the opening paragraphs, the author, who calls himself "Sydney Warburg" states that: "There are moments when I want to turn away from a world of such intrigue, trickery, swindling and tampering with the stock exchange .... Do you know what I can never understand? How it is possible that people of good and honest character -- for which I have ample proof -- participate in swindling and fraud, knowing full well that it will affect thousands."
The New York Times (11/24/1933), was quick to dismiss the book, but in so doing, revealed its own Nazi sympathies: "Hoax on Nazis Feared."
The New York Times. "feared" that not only the Nazis, but the publishers were "victims of a hoax."
The New York Times was apparently a fan of Hitler, for prior to 1933, and during the same time Rockefeller and Standard Oil were contributing millions of dollars, it ran several quite positive stories about Adolf Hitler in 1929, 1930, and 1931 (35) as did the Hearst publishing empire (15).
The author of this "feared hoax" was "Sydney Warburg." However. after the book's publication, not only the New York Times but the Warburg family, which included Max Warburg, a director of IG Farben in Germany, and Paul Warburg a director of American IG. Farben, denounced the book. Of course, we also know that IG. Farben was a major financial supporter of Hitler, and we know the Standard Oil and the Bush-Harriman clique were in business with IG Farben (36). S,. the Warburg denunciation cannot be taken completely seriously.
Nevertheless, James Warburg demanded that the book be destroyed because it contains "a mass of libelous material against various members of my family and against a number of prominent banking houses and individuals in New York." However, Warburg then goes on to say. "I have never to this day seen a copy of the book" (37).
Within days of the books publication. and although those who denounced it have never seen a copy it disappeared from circulation and almost all copies were quickly destroyed (36).
As detailed in Antony C. Sutton's well documented book. Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler (36). the first section of the book explains that in 1929. American banks and investors were concerned that the demands by France on German war reparations, were eating into their own profits. Thus. these American business men called a meeting in June 1929 to discuss the problem and what might be done. Those in attendance included "members of the Federal Reserve Bank and leading American bankers" including the "directors of Guaranty Trust Company. the Presidents of the Federal Reserve Banks. in addition to five independent bankers, young Rockefeller. and Glean from Royal Dutch Shell. Rockefeller" and "Carter" of Guaranty Trust Company. "dominated the proceedings. The others listened and nodded their heads."
Antony Sutton, then goes on to report that according to Warburg's book, "The general consensus at the bankers' meeting was that the only way to free Germany from French financial clutches was by revolution, either Communist or German Nationalist."
Rockefeller argued that the money should go to Hitler. After some negotiation, 10 million dollars was transferred to the Nazis.
During subsequent meetings, it was explained that Hitler's storm troopers and SS, were insufficiently equipped and badly needed machine guns, revolvers, and carbines. Hitler explained that he had two plans for takeover in Germany: (a) revolution (b) legal takeover plan. Hitler is quoted as saying, "revolution costs five hundred million marks. Legal takeover costs two hundred million marks -- what will your bankers decide?"
A legal takeover thus offered the best deal.
Warburg passed these demands to Rockefeller and Guaranty Trust and received the following answer in reply:
"Suggested amounts are out of the question. We don't want to and cannot. Explain to man that such a transfer to Europe will shatter financial market. Absolutely unknown on international territory. Expect long report, before decision is made. Stay there. Continue investigation. Persuade man of impossible demands. Don't forget to include in report own opinion of possibilities for future of man."
After further negotiations, Rockefeller and the American banking and oil interests offered an additional $15 million which would help finance the legal takeover. Revolution would be too expensive and destructive.
In the months after Hitler took power, in 1933, Warburg delivered yet another payment from Rockefeller and Carter and their associates in banking, industry, and oil, i.e. 7 million dollars (37).
Although the New York Times, and the directors of IG Farben -- a company that assisted in the murder of millions of men, women, and children -- have decried this cruel "hoax" which puts the Nazis, Rockefeller, Standard Oil, and the bankers at Guaranty in such a bad light, we do know that these men and these companies were in business with the Nazis (13). And we know that Emil Helfferich, chairman of the Bush-Harriman company, Hamburg- Amerika, was also chairman of Standard Oil's German subsidiaries. Emil Helfferich frequently wrote out checks to Heinrich Himmler payable on a special Standard Oil account. According to U.S. intelligence documents reviewed by author Anthony Sutton (36). Helfferich was still making these payments to the S.S. in 1944 -- the same S.S. which was rounding up. enslaving. and supervising the mass murder of Russians. Jews. Gypsies, Poles, etc., at IG Farben's death camps.THE STANDARD OIL NAZIS
"In two years Germany will be manufacturing oil and gas enough out of soft coal for a long war. The Standard Oil of New York is furnishing millions of dollars to help."
-- Commercial Attache, U.S. Embassy in Berlin, Germany, January 1933.
Standard Oil also provided expertise to IG. Farben including the know how to make leaded gasoline. As detailed in an IG Farben memo: "Since the beginning of the war we have been in a position to produce lead tetraethyl solely because, a short time before the outbreak of the war. the Americans had established plants for us ready for production and supplied us with all available experience. In this manner we did not need to perform the difficult work of development because we could start production right away on the basis of all the experience that the Americans had for years."
In another IG Farben memo Standard Oil's assistance in procuring $20 million worth of aviation fuel and lubricants is acknowledged:
"As a further remarkable example of advantageous effect for us of the contract between IG and Standard Oil, the following should be mentioned: in the years 1934 / 1935 our government had the greatest interest in gathering from abroad a stock of especially valuable mineral oil products (in particular. aviation gasoline and aviation lubricating oil), and holding it in reserve to an amount approximately equal to 20 million dollars at market value. The German Government asked IG if it were not possible. on the basis of its friendly relations with Standard Oil. to buy this amount in Farben's name; actually. however. as trustee of the German Government. The fact that we actually succeeded by means of the most difficult negotiations in buying the quantity desired by our government from the American Standard Oil Company and the Dutch -- English Royal -- Dutch -- Shell group and in transporting it to Germany, was made possible only through the aid of the Standard Oil Co."
Standard oil, Rockefeller, and the Bush-Harriman clique, not only provided financial and technological assistance to Hitler, but assisted his war effort and terror campaign to the detriment of the United States (13,36,38).
It is because of this collaboration, that the Bush-Harriman- Walker properties were seized by the U.S. government for violation of the Trading with the Enemy Act (31).
Charges of "criminal conspiracy with the enemy" were also filed against Standard Oil. However, when evidence of collusion was presented by Thurman Arnold, chief of the Antitrust Division of the U.S. government, it was pointed out by Standard that it was also selling oil and fuel to the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force. If Standard Oil were punished, America might lose a major share of its oil supply, and might lose the war.
Standard Oil not only threatened the government of the United States, but it had already orchestrated a major oil and gasoline shortage during the Summer of 1941. These artificial shortages were also investigated by the United States Congress.
As summarized by the U.S. National Archives, a "Special Committee to Investigate Gasoline and Fuel-Oil Shortages" commenced hearings on August 28, 1941. "18.89 Fear of impending gasoline scarcity along the Atlantic seaboard gripped the American public during the summer of 1941. Members of Congress were deluged with letters and telegrams from concerned constituents. In August... authorities ... sought to quiet public concern. These statements failed to stop the hoarding of gasoline and the deterioration of public confidence."
"18.90. In response to the confusing situation, the Senate established the Special Committee to Investigate Gasoline and Fuel- Oil Shortages (78A-F3l) on August 28, 1941. The committee, chaired by Francis T. Maloney of Connecticut, was to investigate the shortage of fuel in the various States, the methods of delivery, and the means to ensure an adequate supply for national defense without undue hardship to the private sector.... A major focus of the committee was the petroleum distribution system."
Recalling the terrible gas shortages which were due to a problem in the "petroleum distribution system" the government backed down and Rockefeller and Standard oil escaped punishment. The charges of "criminal conspiracy with the enemy" were dropped. However. Standard Oil did not get off the hook completely. Standard oil agreed to release its patents and pay a modest fine.
Thurman Arnold did not let the matter drop. however. He. along with Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes. provided the documents detailing the collusion between Standard Oil and IG Farben. to Senator Harry Truman. chairman of the Senate Special Committee Investigating the National Defense Program. There followed a series of hearings in March 1942. "In order to disclose the truth about Standard" ( 13, 39).
After the hearing, the committee chairman. Harry S. Truman. characterized the arrangements between Standard oil and IG Farben as "treasonable."
Again, however, the entire matter was dropped. Standard Oil again threatened to disrupt the U.S. war effort.
According to Mark Aarons and John Loftus (The Secret War Against the Jews), "There was a reason for Rockefeller's escape: blackmail. According to the former intelligence officers we interviewed on this point. the blackmail was simple and powerful: The Dulles brothers (John Foster. later Secretary of State, and Allen. later director of the CIA) had one of their clients threaten to interrupt the U.S. oil supply during wartime. Standard executives made it clear that the entire U.S. war effort was fueled by their oil and it could be stopped .... The American government had no choice but to go along if it wanted to win the war" (39).
In May of 1942. another aspect of the treasonable relationship maintained between Standard Oil and IG Farben was brought up during testimony before a Patents Committee hearings. chaired by Senator Homer T. Bone. Even after Hitler declared war on the United States, Rockefeller and thus Standard Oil was collaborating with Nazi Germany and seeking to prevent the U.S. from manufacturing explosives and synthetic rubber (40.41.42).
Following the conclusion of the war. Standard Oil's treasonable behavior was again brought to light by the United States Congress. During congressional hearings conducted before the Truman, Bone, and Kilgore Committees, it was concluded that "Standard Oil" had "seriously imperiled the war preparations of the United States" and that Standard Oil had colluded with IG Farben, to prevent the United States from gaining access to war-related technologies such as the creation of "synthetic rubber."
As noted, although the most serious charges against Standard Oil were dropped, the U.S. government did seize a number of its patents, under the Trading with the Enemy Act.
However, in July of 1944, Standard Oil, filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government, contesting the seizure of its patents. In November of 1945, Judge Charles E. Wyzanski ruled that the government had been entitled to seize the patents.
Standard Oil appealed. On September 22, 1947, Judge Charles Clark rejected the appeal, concluding that "Standard Oil can be considered an enemy national in view of its relationships with IG. Farben after the United States and Germany had become active enemies" (40).
Rockefeller, of course, was a member of the Brotherhood. Rockefeller was also in business with other Nazi collaborators, including Prescott Bush and the Harrimans.THE OIL BROTHERHOOD
From 1927 to 1941, the future director of the CIA, Allen Dulles worked as lawyer and international finance specialist for Sullivan & Cromwell, a Wall Street law firm in New York. Dulles performed work for Bush, Harriman, and Rockefeller in setting up business relationships with the Nazis and with top Nazi industrialists, and served as legal counsel for Standard Oil and the Nazi's IG Farben, who had partnered with the Rockefellers (43).
Allen Dulles played a pivotal role in promoting U.S.-Nazi corporate relations. The Nazis considered Allen Dulles to be "the most influential White House man in Europe" and Dulles had numerous meetings with top ranking members of the SS (6).
In fact both Dulles brothers (John Foster, later Secretary of State, and Allen, later director of the CIA) represented the interests of Bush, Harriman, Rockefeller, and other Nazi collaborators prior tom during and after the ending of the second world war. Whereas Allen served as a spymaster. lawyer and deal maker who brought over a thousand high ranking Nazis into the CIA and found jobs for them in the Republican party and corporate America (43.44), John Foster Dulles was on the board of IG Farben who had partnered with Standard Oil (43).
As was the case with Guaranty Trust, which provided loans to the Nazis and to the Soviet Union, Rockefeller's Standard Oil was also in business with Hitler's nemesis: the Soviet Union. By doing business with both fascist regimes. this guaranteed that regardless of who won the war. Standard Oil would profit. The Dulles' brothers are said to have played a major role in ironing out the Soviet deal.
In 1938, oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia. The king of Saudi Arabia. Ibn Saud, was a supporter of Adolf Hitler. Dulles. acting as a representative of Standard Oil (as well as IG Farben) also played a major role in negotiating and gaining major concessions from Ibn Saud.
As Saudi Prince Bandar explained to PBS Frontline (45): "America has never been a colonizing power as far as we were concerned. Our relationship with America ... started in the 1930s. And when the Americans came to Saudi Arabia. they didn't come as an invader. They came actually as a private sector. trying to help us find oil. They found the oil for us. and they've been our friends ever since."
The result of these discoveries and negotiations was a joint venture between Standard Oil, Texaco. and Mobil. and the formation of the Arabian-American Oil Company (ARAMCO). King Ibn Saud and his family were promised millions in return. whereas the Arabian people received basically nothing (46).
By 1944. Standard Oil had twice artificially created oil shortages as a means of gaining leverage over the U.S. government. Based on the discoveries made in Saudi Arabia, the Standard oil-led cartel successfully lobbied the U.S. Senate. which in turn proposed that the U.S. government should finance the construction of oil pipelines and oil refineries so as to meet future energy needs. With the assistance of the Dulles brothers. this proposal soon became a program to assist Standard oil and ARAMCO in the Persian Gulf.
In February and March of 1944, the "Special Committee Investigating Petroleum Resources" began hammering out the details. As summarized by the United States National Archives: "18.94 In February 1944, the Petroleum Administrator for War, Secretary of Interior Harold Ickes, announced that the Arabian-American Oil Co. would construct a refinery to produce petroleum war products for the Allied Nations, and that the U.S. Government would construct a petroleum pipeline from the Persian Gulf area to the eastern shore of the Mediterranean and would obtain a crude oil petroleum reserve of one billion barrels in the Gulf area." Because of interests pertaining to "national welfare and security" this Special Committee also agreed to "the disposal of Government-owned pipelines and refineries as surplus properties, tidelands oil, and other issues related to petroleum supplies."
In other words, after twice being held hostage by Standard Oil, the U.S. government agreed to give "Government-owned pipelines and refineries" to this Standard oil-led cartel, and to fund the creation of new pipelines and refineries in Saudi Arabia.
The U.S. government and the oil cartel headed by Standard Oil, were now in business with the "royal family" of Ibn Saud. Saud and his family began receiving millions of dollars in payments as their reward for selling out so cheaply (46).
Roosevelt, it is said, had been considering bringing charges of treason against Dulles, Bush, and Rockefeller following the conclusion of the second world war. However, Roosevelt's death put a stop to that. Not only did these traitors get off scott free, but the Dulles brothers also received handsome rewards, Allen becoming the first director the CIA, and John, the Secretary of State.
Nevertheless, although faded by time, and despite the purposeful destruction of incriminating records, the facts remain the same: Prescott Bush, the Harrimans, Rockefellers, the Dulles brothers, and Ibn Saud, had partnered with a terrorist Nazi regime at war with the United States. The Saudi royal family, the Bush family, the Harrimans, Rockefellers, American banks. American Oil, and America's political elite, went into business with Nazi terrorists who murdered tens of millions of innocent, men, women, and children, including tens of thousands of Americans. They partnered with a terrorist regime that was at war with America for three interrelated reasons: money, oil, and power.
Decades later, after Bush was elected vice-president and then President, he, the Saudi royal family, and the CIA, would provide tens of millions of dollars in support of yet another terrorist organization that would declare war with the United States, this one ostensibly headed by Saudi multi-millionaire, Osama bin Laden.
As we shall see. doing business with gangsters, thugs, and terrorists who preach death to America, and who kill Americans, is a Bush family tradition (4,47).

Marx began work on a line-by-line analysis of Hegel's "Philosophy of Right"· and introduced a synthesis which he described as "dialectical materialism." the philosophy of communism. In 1948. Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published The Communist Manifesto. in which he applied Hegel's ideas of thesis and anti-thesis to government and capitalism to arrive at the synthesis of a "conflict-free society:" i.e., communism. Marx believed his idea of a communist society was the fulfillment of Hegel's ideal, which, according to Marx and Engle, "had been turned upside down on its head."
Marx believed he had put the Hegelian Idea right side up. In Marxist communism, instead of just a few individuals owning all the means of production, and thus all the wealth, all the people would own their own means of production and would share equally in its rewards. "Hegel -- in contrast to his disciples -- did not parade ignorance, but was one of the finest intellects of all time" -- Friedrich Engels, "The Critique of Political Economy."

Morgan, Guaranty Trust Company (Harriman-Walker), and Rockefeller's Chase-Manhattan Bank. It is estimated that over $75,000,000 in assistance was provided. In 1912, Mrs. Edward Harriman (Mother of Roland and Averell Harriman) sold 8,000 shares of Guaranty Trust to J.P. Morgan which thus acquired a controlling interest. The Harriman- Walker-Bush and Rockefeller banking clique had their eye on the oil-rich Caspian basin and the Caucuses. With these loans, the Soviet Union was able to purchase oil-related services from companies controlled by this same clique, including Rockefellers Standard Oil which built oil refineries which were financed by the loans provided by Harriman-Bush-Rockefeller banks.

March 27. 1933. Max Warburg states that "For the last few years business was considerably better than we had anticipated. but a reaction is making itself felt for some months. We are actually suffering also under the very active propaganda against Germany. caused by some unpleasant circumstances. These occurrences were the natural consequence of the very excited election campaign, but were extraordinarily exaggerated in the foreign press. The Government is firmly resolved to maintain public peace and order in Germany, and I feel perfectly convinced in this respect that there is no cause for any alarm whatsoever." On March 29. 1933. Max's son. Erich Warburg. sent a cable to his cousin Frederick M. Warburg. a director of the Harriman railroad system; "use all your influence" to stop all anti-Nazi activity in America. including "atrocity news and unfriendly propaganda in foreign press, mass meetings. etc." On March 31, 1933. the American-Jewish Committee. issued a statement asking that "no American boycott against Germany be encouraged."

As a result of its deals with Farben, the United States had been unable to use this vital process even after Pearl Harbor. Also, the United States had been restricted in techniques of producing hydrogen from natural gas and from obtaining paraflow, a product used for airplane lubrication at high altitudes." In addition, "Texas oil operator c.R. Starnes appeared to testify that Standard had blocked him at every turn in his efforts to produce synthetic rubber after Pearl Harbor." This testimony was followed by that of "John R. Jacobs" who "reappeared in an Army private's uniform (he had been inducted the day before) to bring up another disagreeable matter: Standard had also, in league with Farben, restricted production of methanol, a wood alcohol that was sometimes used as motor fuel."
