Brainstorming for Guantanamo, Bush Visits Auschwitz (english)
02 Jun 2003
While Bush prepares his own death camp in Guantanamo Bay, he visits the Auschwitz and Birkenau death camps to see how it's done. Flashback: how did Hitler sell the death camps to the German people? He blamed terrorism and evil. More Presidential irony in a Constitution-free U.S.

Bush visits Auschwitz and Birkenau death camps
By The Associated Press

KRAKOW - U.S. President George W. Bush visited former Nazi death camps Saturday to remind the world that civilization "must confront evil when
we find it."


Ahead of an "address to the Polish people," Bush and his wife, Laura, toured the Auschwitz and Birkenau extermination camps, where 1.5 million Jews and tens of thousands of other victims were killed during World War II.

Bush and his wife toured a gas chamber and crematorium at Auschwitz, emerging grim-faced from the gloomy complex into bright sunshine outside. Laura placed a long-stemmed rose on a cast-iron gurney used for pushing bodies into the ovens.

The president also participated in a wreath-laying at a brick wall in a row of prison barracks, where thousands of prisoners were executed.

"I want to see Auschwitz. I've studied a lot of history. I've been told it's a powerful experience," Bush told reporters before beginning his seven-day trip to Europe and the Middle East.

"But I also want to send a clear signal that all of us must work together to make sure that kind of evil never happens again to anybody."

"We must confront evil when we find it," Bush said in a separate interview with Polish television. "And there's no better place to remind people that there has been evil in the world than at
Auschwitz."

Bush arrived in Poland, the first stop, Friday night. He was welcomed at the airport by a Polish military cordon, the soldiers wearing feathered caps and olive green capes.

Bush was only the second American president to visit Auschwitz, about 80 kilometers from this southern Polish city. President Gerald Ford
visited in 1975, while Poland was under communist rule.

The former death camp is now a museum. Its main gate bears this German inscription: "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work makes you free").

Exhibits inside show heaps of human hair as well as suitcases and other personal items of the victims, who generally were shaved and stripped
of belongings after being brought in by train from across Europe.

Bush Family Financed German Death Camps (english)
02 Jun 2003
Welcome to the Fourth Reich!
Manic Monday

Sandra Monday, Columnist
April 21, 2003

Here it is, The Truth. Many have told me you won't care, that you will call it irrelevant. The truth is that we are in the midst of the Fourth Reich. I know it sounds absurd, but it's true. President George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was a NAZI SYMPATHIZER. He personally financed the building of over 40 concentration camps including Auschwitz. How did he do this and how does this relate to "Junior?" Let me explain.
"On October 20, 1942, the U.S. government ordered the seizure of Nazi German banking operations in New York City which were being conducted by Prescott Bush. Under the Trading With the Enemy Act, the government took over the Union Banking Corporation in which Bush was a director. The U.S. Alien Property Custodian seized Union Banking Corp.'s stock shares, all of which were owned by Prescott Bush, E. Roland "Bunny" Harriman, three Nazi executives and two other associates of Bush."
(Chaitkin and Tarpley, George Bush: the Unauthorized Biography)
If you don't think it's important that Prescott Bush had four companies seized including the Holland-American Trading Corporation or the Seamless Steel Equipment Association as well as the Silesian-American Corporation, then you are in denial. The fact is that President Bush's family played a pivotal part in financing Adolph Hitler's takeover of Germany. Prescott Bush was a legal front man for the Nazis and the entire Bush fortune was built off of the Hitler Project. The New York Tribune had exposed Bush, whom it called "Hitler's Angel."
What does this have to do with Junior you might say? Well, it's elementary my dear Watson. Prescott's son George Bush followed suit by being the first to sell the Japanese the gasoline that was used on the attack on Pearl Harbor . (Glen Yeadon, From the Street of Little Beirut)
George the first has finished his father's work and retained many of the family's connections with Nazi associations, the same associations that have benefited George Junior. Could it be that naming a "department of homeland security" after the S.S.'s famous reference as being the "department of Home Nation Police" is just a coincidence?
There is also the Reichstag fire in Germany, in which Hitler allowed a few famous German buildings to be torched by a feeble-minded simpleton who he aided and abetted beforehand, then later used the fires as an excuse to "tighten security" and "suspend the German constitution." This is just as Bush is using 9-11 as an excuse to pass the Patriot Act and suspend our constitutional rights. In the same vein he is blocking out any meaningful debate on the mainstream media such as Fascist A.M. radio where Clear Channel, which has tight Republican connections, owns most of the radio stations.
No, you will never see any of this in the mainstream media, even if you yell it from the rooftops. Even if you scream it at the top of your lungs, the bewildered herd will pass you as it stops-up its ears to protect denial. Yes, George Bush became a master propaganda artist and one can tell that he took extra time studying Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, which got him his best C at Yale ever.
"All propaganda must be popular and its intellectual level must be adjusted to the most limited intelligence among those it is addressed to. Consequently, the greater the mass it is intended to reach, the lower its purely intellectual level will have to be. But if, as in propaganda for sticking out a war, the aim is to influence a whole people, we must avoid excessive intellectual demands on our public, and too much caution cannot be extended in this direction."
Well, I guess that says it all in a nutshell. Only one place can say it better, with entertaining music from A Clockwork Orange, an interesting photo collage and funny lyrics in one comical Internet documentary: www.takebackthemedia.com/bushnonazi.html.
I highly recommend it if you want to develop a sense of humor about the whole situation. Until then, Heil Bush!
