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.

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.”

46 Comments on Bush, Rockefeller, Rothschild & Hitler

  1. Why ? Jewish can’t be a facist? Go to Palestine and check to zionists what they are
    doing, if you don’t believe

  2. I think it was a rabbi called Samuel Weiss who first wrote of the Jewish grandfather of Adolf. I don’t know what to think of it, but do i think Adolf was Arian? No, he was very unlike, though he sure had some good European ancestry too. Today, his screaming speeches reminds all too much about muslims and ME style. Also he seems like a cousin to Erdogan in Turkey
    And what about his government? Absolutely no Arian representation, except for this scout leader Baldur. The overall look of his men was silk road riff raff. Goering could certainly fool many, but if you saw his profile, his neanderthal forehead was just as good as Mao’s.
    R.Heydrich is sometimes called Hitlers blond beast by these “scientific” history magazines, (all jewish owned propaganda machines) and he probably was a blond alibi, but genetic ancestry tends to become more visible with age, and on his deathmask he looks more like Barbara Streisand, than any Aryan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_mask
    It is interesting that he also became leader of Interpol, this International police force rumored to have been started by the Rothschilds.
    Heinrich Himmler was ordained a Jesuit Priest in 1925, and it was as known he who took care of Auswitch. The Jesuits was also behind the writing of Mein Kampf (according to Alberto Rivera), some may have noticed that David Irving is unwilling to even speak of this book as he says it is not Hitlers work.
    And lastly , Nazism was bleak as a political ideology,though there is lots of power in complaining, and all todays versions of neo-nazism confirms this. They attract non thinkers and do never even try to update. What a gift for our enemies. An ideology which can be used as an anvil for centuries to come, and if anyone gets so pissed off by this society they even want to catch up its taboo, they get an impotent package.

  3. I previously commented on Hitler’s background and erroneously referred to his father as a merchant. Of course he was not, he was part of the bureaucratic society in Austria at the time. Sorry for the misinformation!

  4. This article is less than accurate – I will simply leave it at that. To touch on just one point in this article, that seems to draw on the writer’s own “take” and not historical facts; Hitler was part Jewish! That is beyond dispute! There has been more researchers coming to that conclusion,giving sufficient evidence to that fact! Hitler knew it of course(!), and denied it and hid that fact to his contemporaries. Hitler’s Jewish side was one of the controversies about Hitler – hidden in the annals of the early nationalist party! His father was a Jewish merchant of some kind, rough and malicious towards Hitler’s mom as well as himself.
    The fact that he was no even a German citizen, caused problems for him, to become accepted into the German society initially!

    It’s it of concern to me that history repeatedly gets re-written by people that have NOT done their own research!

  5. The facts are, regardless of who may or may not of financed him, Hitler and the Nazis were a backlash against the Jews that were turning Germany upside down in the 10s and 20s.

    Not only do the indoctrination centers, schools, not teach about the Jew Rosa Luxemburg Communist “Revolution” of 1918-1919, but they also do not teach that the Jews declared war on Germany in 1933.

    The indoctrination centers refrain from teaching that in the 1920s, the most belligerent nation in Europe was Poland. They ignore the fact that Germany’s invasion of Eastern Poland was of territory forcibly given to Poland post WW-I.

    I could go on and on.

    As for the Holocaust?! Call a few mortuaries and inquires as what must be done to a body after cremation. They have to crush the skeleton, as it does not burn. Now go in to the “Holocaust” record and see how many testimonies include the crushing, and discarding, of, victim skeletons. Hint: NONE. “Shoah we the money!”

    And no, I am not a Nazi. As a libertarian I abhor all tyrannies. I just don’t care for the Jewish tyranny occupying the West, and my country, America, or the Jews “Big Lies.”

  6. The earlier-mentioned book – Higham, Charles. Trading with the Enemy: An Exposé of the Nazi-American Money Plot, 1933—1949. New York: Delacorte Press, 1983 – has appeared on the Web in full.
    May God remember poor Michael and Victor.

  7. There is a very comprehensive book on who funded the ones with the power, it does not cover only Hitler but also other mighty people/kings/lords etc.
    Its from well-known Prof. Görlitz / Germany, dated 1982:
    Geldgeber der Macht

    Also interesting is this link with some sources of the FBI disclosures on Hitlers death:
    FBI Quietly Declassified Secret Files Attesting Hitler Fled to Argentina in 1945

    Nontheless, regardless if he fled or not – he would be dead by today in any case, god thanks.

  8. The role of big business in Germany (steel, arms, chemistry, you name it) in helping to put Hitler in power has been documented and almost accounted for (given the wealth of figures) by an anarchist and French historian during his first trip to Germany in the 1930s just after Hitler’s accession (first published in 1936), then completed in 1945, and reedited ever since in France. This 600 page book by Daniel Guerin (see his Wikipedia page) has become a classic of German historiography of the period. His book is called Fascism and Big Business (Fascisme et Grand Capital). I read his book a long long time ago. There is all you need to know in there.

    The thesis as per which German big firms provided the bulk part of the funds which allowed Hitler’s party to gain political momentum before 1933, is an accepted fact amongst German historians of economy.

  9. If Hitler WAS Jewish, then that would explain his (supposed) mad man genocidal, homicidal, murderous, evil, supremacist, racist, vile nature. It would be that (his Jewishness) made him the most evil man in history.

    But he was none of the above, which proves he was NOT a Jew.

    So, when you tell me he was evil AND that he was a Jew, it makes sense. But the fact is that he was neither, and that he was not a Jew makes him a human.

  10. “Just the facts”? Guess what? That statement from the fictitious Joe Friday was given as an example of what NOT to tell witnesses to a crime you are questioning, in the Criminal Justice Investigation classes I took.

    What you want is to gather as much gab, without interjecting any of your own self into it as possible, you encourage your witnesses/people involved, to talk about the incident, anything around the incident and absolutely everything they can think of, even other maybe minor observations and opinions.

    Then later, you take the bulk of this material and assign it priorities, from most probably to least, but you never throw anything out unless it’s something PROVEN absolutely wrong, impossible or irrelevant. You store all this, working down from the most to the least, and sometimes it’s the least probably that you end up with as an answer when all is said and done.

    So no, it’s not just the facts (who decides what is facts or not) but a search for what is the truth.

  11. So let me get this straight…this article leaves out the Union banking scandal involving Prescott Bush? WTF?

    From The Guardian:

    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. The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism. Bush was also on the board of at least one of the companies that formed part of a multinational network of front companies to allow Thyssen to move assets around the world.

    Thyssen owned the largest steel and coal company in Germany and grew rich from Hitler’s efforts to re-arm between the two world wars. One of the pillars in Thyssen’s international corporate web, UBC, worked exclusively for, and was owned by, a Thyssen-controlled bank in the Netherlands. More tantalising are Bush’s links to the Consolidated Silesian Steel Company (CSSC), based in mineral rich Silesia on the German-Polish border. During the war, the company made use of Nazi slave labour from the concentration camps, including Auschwitz. The ownership of CSSC changed hands several times in the 1930s, but documents from the US National Archive declassified last year link Bush to CSSC, although it is not clear if he and UBC were still involved in the company when Thyssen’s American assets were seized in 1942.

    Three sets of archives spell out Prescott Bush’s involvement. All three are readily available, thanks to the efficient US archive system and a helpful and dedicated staff at both the Library of Congress in Washington and the National Archives at the University of Maryland.

    How Bush’s grandfather helped Hitler’s rise to power

  12. FDR was a hero to most Americans and opposed the bankers and their schemes. He did not believe that a few elite should use the American government as their private piggy bank. Now we have stimulus that goes to the elite. FDR directed stimulus to the people and saved them from starvation and despair. My parents grew up in the Great Depression and told me that FDR and Will Rogers were heroes.
  13. Don’t twist Sutton’s texts around. He’s not alive to defend against that and if he were he’d school you. What he said was that Standard Oil provided technologies. Why leave that out? What he also described was the relationship between directors on various boards, Standard Oil included, to describe the interconnections. Reference fail on your part, article writer.
  14. The article is a confession of one fact: the author is a Zionist Nazi, or is bankrolled by Zionist Nazis to place the above propaganda. A nice piece of disinformation.
  15. You certainly have not convinced me of that which you are trying to refute.

    But this little piece of disinformation is priceless:

    “Most of the Nazi Party’s money came from small contributions and sales of literature.”

    Small contributions and sales of literature? To fund a war?

  16. There is another post about the Ashkenazi ‘Jews.’ These people are not a Hebrew tribe. They are not from Abraham and thus cannot be of the tribe of Judah. There people were roving Semites. Go to Strong’s Concordance or an online Bible website and search engine, and put in permutations of Ashkenazi, etc. These people are not a Hebrew tribe and claim to be ‘Jews’ but are a mix of non Hebrew i.e., Abraham and his descendants. Ashkenazi are Semite people who traveled north. Semite = those of Shem and can be of Abraham but not all Semite people are Hebrew people.
  17. John Tolland’s two-volume biography of Hitler does not have him a Jew, nor related to the Rothschilds. These volumes are no longer in my apartment, and my apartment and land line have been bugged by the NSA or some other intelligence apparatus.

    Skorzeny and CIA sources say cosmetic surgery was done on Hitler and he and the others in the bunker fled to S. America and then lived in the U.S. Skorezy could be lying but said Hitler lived into ripe old age.

    Prescott Bush ne Sherf or Scherf wanted Smedley Butler to be the President upon doing a coup d’etat on Roosevelt, who by way of the Rockefellers and knowing that Prescott ‘Bush’ ne Sherf had gotten himself adopted by Roosevelt, who was not interested in indulging the privateering and treacheries of the Sherfs and others interested in yet more war in Europe, and actually facilitating Germany’s emerging as the Vatican’s new contemporary agent state to do Holy Roman Empire, Butler exposes Bush’s ‘Business Plot’ before a Congressional hearing. Butler was medically murdered in 1940 in Philadelphia.

    Skorzeny had a photo in which were Gehlen, Boremann, Prescott and GHW Sherf as well as Mengele. The photo is roughly mid-30s and Skorzeny places after the Business Plot which was in 1936.

    Sherf had been Tesla’s business manager. GHW was his son and trained by Gehlen to be a spy. GHW stole materials, tech from Tesla and Skorzeny and Gehlen later murdered Tesla.

    Sherf got himself adopted by Bush, worked for BBH, and thus GHW was able to obtain the Bush name although he and his father were born in Germany. Sherf was not a child, but an adult at the adoption, perhaps to alter estate taxes or something like that. Birth records of Prescott and GHW are all contrived.

    U.S. money went into German catholic royals businesses and our wealthy families were trade partners with Germany, but actually the Vatican is the root of the problem and this is the same today, with Germany’s EU ‘free’ trade, national champions effort to take over Europe and facilitate ‘restoration’ of Holy Roman Empire. Notice a German pope was forced to resign and now there is a Jesuit pope, who is very sleazy. The economic problems in the U.S. today are because GHWB is born in Germany, still a part of the 4th Reich’s vow at the red hotel to continue to wage commercial and cultural war on the U.S., Britain and Russia—an orthodox country and like Greece, thus in the cross hairs of the Vatican and the Vatican’s bankers and ‘accountants’ the Rothschilds, as well as the 4th Reich here, i.e., the Bush/Sherfs, etc.

  18. Bush, Ford, GM = J.P.Morgan, Standard oil, IBM did business with Nazis while war and benefits of slave laborer. Also they sponsored Hitler in 1920. Warburg, Rothschild didn’t.
  19. Thank you, APF, for this information.

    If anyone is truly interested in an outstanding documentary about Adolf Hitler and WWII, please watch this 6-1/2 hour video produced by Dennis Wise.

    If you are interested in the truth, this is it, IF you can honestly handle the TRUTH!


  20. Michael Collins Piper is a Nazi and even perhaps a Zionist-Nazi himself, therefore will always defend Hitler’s irresponsible (to say the least) war decision-makings.
  21. This is a typical Zionist-issued decree. The fact of the matter is, Hitler was approached by the Zionists MUCH LATER than 1933. Look up Lehi, it’s a Zionist militant group formed in 1940! They openly supported Nazi Germany because of issues with the British in Palestine. And if you really think donations and book sales financed one of the biggest war regimes in history, then you’re insane. Every war since the 1700s has been financed by bankers. Read credible documents maybe you’ll become a good journalist.
  22. There is much more writing confirming that banksters are behind wars for profit and genocide of the lowly common people.
  23. Erwin Toseland is off his rocker. He is using his imaginary Zionist nonsense because he is really just a Jew hater.
  24. Most of the above is, of course, dis-information put out by Zionists to “muddy the water.” The best book is called “Who Makes Our Money” by F.J. Irsigler (a South African).
  25. Yet another book on the subject:

    Higham, Charles. Trading with the Enemy: An Exposé of the Nazi-American Money Plot, 1933—1949. New York: Delacorte Press, 1983

  26. Michael Goloniewski, the head of the polish KGB that defected to the West, divulged in his monthly bulletin that Adolf Hitler was in reality the Duke of Clarence, whom he claims was also Jack the Ripper. He supplied substantial proof to substantiate this claim. He also stated that Hitler died in London in 1972.

    Keep in mind this was the same individual that was responsible for exposing a network of Soviet spies in the early 1960s. He also claimed the Sergeant Henry Kissinger was a soviet agent code named Bor who was assigned to Odra in Obamagrau Germany.

  27. Hitler (and Putin) have been pawns in the game outlined by the notorious Pike’s letter—to create three World Wars and bring the Antichrist in. Sound German economics/politics (and Russian foreign policy) have been nothing but tools to win the people’s confidence and support future conflicts. The tools have been supplemented by foreign propaganda demonizing the leaders—covert agents of influence.

    Some pieces on Hitler:

    Hitler Used Rothschild Banker’s Typewriter

    Illuminati Bankers Hired Hitler to Start WW2

    Was Hitler an Illuminati Agent?

    Hitler and Bormann Were Traitors

    On the Myth that Hitler Was a “Bonapartist” Who Turned on the Jewish Bankers After They Put Hitler in Power

  29. Leave it to goy to wet their panties over unimportant issues. The issue is, was Hitler the real deal, and yes, he was. Quit being racist white trash!

  30. AFP has nothing to relate to its readers on the subject of The Pilgrims Society? AFP has had ample time (since December 2004) to become informed about this organization, and has somehow missed all of the info? Or AFP wishes its readers to not become aware of this group, which entirely by itself constitutes the last great secret of modern history. It is as if a 60,000′ mountain in Australia is being refused any mention.

  31. I disagree. A three-year collaboration that set the structures of kibbutzim ready for civil war in 1936 1939.

  32. There is no proof whatsoever Hitler was Jewish. But he did correctly designate the Jew as the enemy of white European society. A few of his generals were half Jews, such as Erich Von Manstein. The Wehrmacht contained 60,000 half Jews and 90,000 quarter Jews.

    Most of Hitler’s financial success came from the NSDAP instituting their own zero interest state bank and kicking out the WW1 Versailles imposed Rothschild’s bank. That was the underlying cause of WW2. The West had to destroy his economic miracle before it went viral.

  33. If Hitler was or wasn’t a Jew is irrelevant, because the father of the Nazi philosophy, Alfred Rosenberg, was a Latvian Jew. So were many other high ranking Nazis in Germany. And the worst of all were the Red Jews in USSR and Eastern Europe.

    Now you take the Zionist scumbags in the U.S. “establishment” and its EU satellite, and you have a global picture of the Judases.

  35. 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.

  36. 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.

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

  38. 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.

  39. 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.

  40. 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?
