Bush, Rockefeller, Rothschild & Hitler

Bush, Rockefeller, Rothschild & Hitler

By Michael Collins Piper

Some AMERICAN FREE PRESS readers were upset by the first two articles in this series reflecting on the proliferation of myths, phony documents and fraudulent “quotations” muddying serious research into big issues of the current day and events of the past.

However, AFP’s job is to report the facts.

This week, we take a look at one particularly ubiquitous myth—a combination of myths—which has excited many: A variety of claims the Bush, Rockefeller and Rothschild families and a host of “Jewish bankers”—together or independently—helped finance Hitler’s rise to power.

The most cited source for the story Jewish bankers paved the way for Hitler is Hitler’s Secret Backers, supposedly by a Jewish banker named Sidney Warburg.

Barnes Review

First of all, there was no Sidney Warburg. But those who actually read the spurious book (and most who cite it haven’t read it) will find the unknown author says—in contrast to what people think he said—that Jewish bankers didn’t finance Hitler. Instead, the book claims some naughty non-Jewish bankers did so.

But even that isn’t true. An accurate assessment by James Pool in Who Financed Hitler absolutely refutes the legend big banking or industrial interests played a substantial role funding Hitler. Most of the Nazi Party’s money came from small contributions and sales of literature.

No Rothschilds backed Hitler. That’s a myth. One banker, a practicing Christian of one-quarter Jewish descent, was said—by one source, passing on a rumor—to have donated money to Hitler. And that’s it. The one Jewish banker known to have given money to any Nazis gave it to elements in the Nazi party—the Strasser brothers—who were trying to stop Hitler.

And Hitler wasn’t descended from any Rothschilds or Frankenbergers. If he had any Jewish blood, it has never been authoritatively traced.

One proponent of the claim Hitler was Jewish cites Brigitte Hamann’s Hitler’s Vienna as proof, pointing out the book describes stories of Hitler’s Jewish heritage. In fact, Hamann dissects the legends, refuting them in detail. Scholars such as Carolyn Yeager and Veronica Clark, in Warwolves of the Iron Cross, have also demolished the rumors.

Some claim Hitler was pro-Zionist. They are wrong. For a brief period Hitler did encourage some Zionists in efforts to promote Jewish immigration from Germany to Palestine, as described in Edwin Black’s The Transfer Agreement. However, at the same time, other Zionist forces were calling for war against Hitler as early as 1933.

The legendary “Nazi-Zionist collaboration” was a tiny blip of no geopolitical consequence. But it makes for great Internet chatter.

Others are hysterical over the fact American banks and corporations worked with the Nazi regime, yet—despite the frenzy—this is neither a major revelation nor is it extraordinary.

These were well-known arrangements, sometimes going back decades, with whatever German government was in power.

Many think that Antony Sutton “proved” in Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler that Rockefeller-controlled Standard Oil funded Hitler. However, in his book, Sutton says flatly: “Standard Oil apparently did not finance Hitler’s accession to power.”

Some cite that same book as evidence the Bush family, with the Harriman banking interests, funded Hitler. In fact, Sutton says only that the Harrimans—like many American financial groups—had connections to corporate interests in Germany. And he concludes that this “does not suggest that the Harrimans directly financed Hitler.” He never mentions the Bushes at all.

Another rumor claims the Bushes were part of a “fascist plot” to overthrow Franklin Roosevelt, often citing Jules Archer’s The Plot to Seize the White House. While there was a scheme to dislodge FDR—which many patriots believe to have been a good thing—the book never mentions the Bushes, nor is there any other evidence they had anything to do with that plot.

As Detective Sergeant Joe Friday used to say: “Just the facts.”

    Hitler was Jewish. They have done genetic tests on his living relatives.

  2. Sanctified says:
    Hitler’s ‘Jewish blood’… there is no such thing as ‘Jewish blood.’

    Jews (or Judes) are not a race or a tribe, they are followers of Judaism (remember entertainers Sammy Davis, Jr. and Elizabeth Taylor became Jews).

    PS… Jesus was not a Jew. Jesus was a Nazarene.

    Can you say….CRACKPOT?!

    “John Joseph Loftus (February 12, 1950) is an American author, former U.S. government prosecutor and former Army intelligence officer. He is a president of The Intelligence Summit and, although he is not Jewish, a president of the Florida Holocaust Museum. Loftus also serves on the Board of Advisers to Public Information Research.

    He began working for the U.S. Department of Justice in 1977 and in 1979 joined their Office of Special Investigations, which was charged with prosecuting and deporting Nazi war criminals in the US. Loftus’ now-expired Web site claimed, “As a young U.S. Army officer, John Loftus helped train Israelis on a covert operation that turned the tide of battle in the 1973 Yom Kippur War.”

    He also writes regularly for Ami, an Orthodox Jewish weekly news magazine.

    On August 7, 2005, he provided the United States address of an alleged terrorist named Iyad K. Hilal on Fox News. Only afterwards was it revealed that Hilal had left the address three years previously and the home was now owned by a family, which was then subjected to threats and vandalism and required police protection as a result of Loftus’ words. Fox terminated Loftus’s contract to commentate after the event. Loftus said “I thought it might help police in that area now that we have positively identified a terrorist,” but he did not say why he did not contact police in a more direct manner. Loftus apologized for the mistake and expressed frustration about “one federal [agency's]” inaction on an earlier tip he had given them years ago due to the same address.

    John Loftus? Of course I’m smirking. That Loftus should be considered an unbiased ‘intelligence source.’ :D

  5. Jaroslav Kukla says:
    Perhaps and most likely, Hitler himself was an illegitimate child of Rothschild, as pointed out by David Icke in his books. He had Khazarian features and hate-the Khazars are known for! Certainly, he (Hitler) had empowered these Khazars after WW2 beyond stoppage.

    Comparing it to the masonic “secrets,” I believe there is a large and global plot by the Red, Blue and Brown Khazars, as the ancient astronomies reveal. Our world and civilizations replace one after another one and the Khazars play a prime role in it. Our world is nothing but vanity of vanities, and perhaps the captive human life in it as well.

    I’m not sure what to believe when it comes to the WW2 era, but the question that keeps popping in my head is whether or not bankers were behind WW2 because it seems to me to be a prominent recurring theme. Few things in this world are as ruthless as banks, as anyone can attest.

  7. Richard Paul Zuckerman says:

    What about retired U.S. Department of Justice Prosecutor John Loftus, in his two books, in his recent YouTube, positing the Bush Family patriarchs, Connecticut-U.S. Senator Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker, along with a Rockefeller, financed Adolph Hitler?
