Prescott Bush was part of a large banking group that funded the Nazi party and the uprising of the Third Reich.
Prescott Sheldon Bush (1895-1972) married George Herbert Walker’s (1875-1953) daughter Dorothy Wear Walker (1901-1992) in 1921 and she was renamed of course, Dorothy Wear Walker Bush, after the marriage.
Prescott Bush was then made Vice-President of A. Harriman & Co. in 1924 where George Herbert Walker worked, as did E. Roland Harriman and Knight Woolley.
Bush, Harriman and Woolley were all Yale classmates and members of the Skull and Bones secret society, George Herbert Walker was also a member of the Skull and Bones secret society, and Prescott Bush was also admitted to the Zeta Psi fraternity which I’ll come back to at a later date.
Prescott Bush then joined the United States Rubber Company of New York City as manager of the foreign division in 1924 and then he became a partner of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. (an American investment bank and securities firm) which was created in 1931 through a merger of W. A. Harriman & Co. – an investment bank and brokerage firm and Brown Bros. & Co. – An investment bank and trading company.
By the 1970s the relatively unknown private international banking firm of Brown Brothers, Harriman, with assets of about one-half billion dollars, had taken in so many of “the Brotherhood” that out of 26 individual partners, no fewer than 9 were members of The Order. We don’t know of any greater concentration of members.

Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. created the Union Banking Corporation with Friedrich “Fritz” Thyssen. Prescott Bush was one of seven corporate directors put in charge of Union Banking Corporation as a front to help Thyssen conceal the bank’s real ownership.
1924: W.A.Harriman & Co invested $400,000 in setting up Union Banking Corp. (UBC) in New York to act in partnership with the Thyssen-owned Bank voor Handel en Scheepvart (Bank for Trade and Shipping, BHS) in Holland. The UBC was now in a position to transfer funds back & forth between the US and Thyssen’s companies in Germany – his Vereinigte Stahlwerke (United Steel) in particular. Prescott Sheldon Bush Snr. (son of Samuel Bush, & son-in-law of George H Walker) joins the Harriman – controlled US Rubber Co.

Friedrich “Fritz” Thyssen was a multibillionaire steel businessman and an early Nazi supporter, the official story is that he later denounced his support “over their persecution of Catholics and Jews.” After fleeing to Switzerland – a neutral country, Thyssen was arrested by the Nazis in 1938 and put in a Nazi prison, where he remained until the end of the war. Thyssen controlled more than 75% of Germany’s iron ore reserves (used largely to create the Nazi German military) and 50% coal-mine output, he was also head of the German Iron and Steel Industry Association and the Reich Association of German Industry, and was a board member of the Reichsbank – the central bank of Germany at the time.
Coming back to Brown Brothers Harriman & Co., they also included Holland-American Trading Corporation, the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation and Silesian-American Corporation.
Germany had no money and were massively in debt after WWI so via these companies Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. shipped millions of dollars worth of gold, steel, munitions, fuel and US treasury bonds to Germany, which at the time was already under Adolph Hitler and the Nazi Party. These funds were then largely used to build the Third Reich.
Between 1931 and 1933 UBC bought more than $8m worth of gold, of which $3m was shipped abroad. According to documents seen by the Guardian, after UBC was set up it transferred $2m to BBH accounts and between 1924 and 1940 the assets of UBC hovered around $3m, dropping to $1m only on a few occasions.

The U.S. Government accused Prescott Bush & Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. of “Trading with the Enemy” in 1942, the bank and other business interests were seized under the Trading With The Enemy Act and held the assets for the duration of WWII until 1951 when they were given back their company. Union Banking Corporation was dissolved.
A year later in 1952 Prescott Bush became a US Senator.
Prescott Bush’s is the father of George Herbert Walker Bush – 41st President and an ambassador and Director of Central Intelligence (CIA) and so Prescott is Grandfather to George Walker Bush – 43rd President. All members of the Skull and Bones secret society.
Unfortunately, the support of US companies for the Nazis, as well as their ideology, extended far beyond the Bush family and including Ford and GE. GE reportedly even subsidized Nazi war costs while increasing relative costs in the US: trying to optimize profits at the cost of a loss of life. If only it was as simple as the Bushes alone being aligned with the Nazis, alas they were backed by quite a few major economic powerhouses in the US from the Morgans to the Fords to Rockefellers.
This is also not just an isolated part of history: major US companies, as well as the government, continued and continue to support tyrannical dictatorships around the world. The Bushes were just a single part of the push for Nazism in the US which led to Hitler’s initial wartime success and possibly linked with the attempted assassination of FDR. Anyone who thinks that things have changed significantly has obviously not been paying attention, and nor is it insane to wonder if “we” really won the second world war.
