Prescott Bush with his son, George Herbert Walker Bush

A BBC Radio 4 investigation sheds new light on a major subject that has received little historical attention, the conspiracy on behalf of a group of influential powerbrokers, led by Prescott Bush, to overthrow FDR and implement a fascist dictatorship in the U.S. based around the ideology of Mussolini and Hitler.

In 1933, Marine Corps Maj.-Gen. Smedley Butler was approached by a wealthy and secretive group of industrialists and bankers, including Prescott Bush the current President’s grandfather, who asked him to command a 500,000 strong rogue army of veterans that would help stage a coup to topple then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

According to the BBC, the plotters intended to impose a fascist takeover and “Adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.”

The conspirators were operating under the umbrella of a front group called the American Liberty League, which included many families that are still household names today, including Heinz, Colgate, Birds Eye and General Motors.

Butler played along with the clique to determine who was involved but later blew the whistle and identified the ringleaders in testimony given to the House Committee on un-American Activities.

However, the Committee refused to even question any of the individuals named by Butler and his testimony was omitted from the record, leading to charges that they were involved in covering the matter up, and the majority of the media blackballed the story.


General Smedley Butler, author of the famous quote “war is a racket”, exposed the fascist plotters but was subsequently demonized and shunned by the government and the media.

In 1936, William Dodd, the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, wrote a letter to President Roosevelt in which he stated:

“A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime…. A prominent executive of one of the largest corporations, told me point blank that he would be ready to take definite action to bring fascism into America if President Roosevelt continued his progressive policies. Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there. Propagandists for fascist groups try to dismiss the fascist scare. We should be aware of the symptoms. When industrialists ignore laws designed for social and economic progress they will seek recourse to a fascist state when the institutions of our government compel them to comply with the provisions.”

The proven record of Prescott Bush’s involvement in financing the Nazi war machine dovetails with the fact that he was part of a criminal cabal that actively sought to impose a fascist coup in America.

Prescott did not succeed but many would argue that two generations down the line the mission has all but been accomplished.

In his documentary film Martial Law, Alex Jones interviews John Buchanan, who was instrumental in uncovering the documents tying Prescott Bush to the financing of the Third Reich. Watch a clip above. The subject is also covered in Alex’s upcoming film, End Game, which includes rare video of Smedley Butler’s testimony.

  1. I haven’t fully digested this article as of yet…I’m still trying to swallow some of it. Knowing that the followers of CFGS (Citizens For Global Solutions) are making headway with their plan to destroy America, there is some connection that filters through such that one may connect the dots. Some such dots are visably connected to their CFGS goals, and that is, the unusal alliance between George Herbert Walker Bush
    and William Jefferson Clinton. The latter a known advocate for the so called ‘New World Order’. It must also be well known within the inner circles of the New York Times, one of what should be included in your list of ,”a clique of powerbrokers ” that their fascist global agenda is beyond the stages of ‘transformation’;
    it is indeed in the process of being reshaped. You can connect NYT’s dot by reading the forward to Hedrick Smith’s book, The New Russians” As you know Smith was the head correspondent from the NYT in Moscow during the Cold War. In his book he clearly states the intentions of this planned takeover with the words, “…our global agenda…” (page xx in the paperback issue).

  2. Don’t worry, I cover all sides and levels of the NWO pyramid here. Just poke around some more and see:

  3. I’m with your Norm still digesting it.

  4. I’m not buying it. I have been here before with a troll that goes by the nic of Smedley Butler.

    Smedley may have been a war hero and highly decorated but in his last days he was very ill with a disease that affected rational thought.

    If this is what some claim and not some vast conspiratorial left-wing attempt at being stupid as they are prone to do, why then has it been so “secret” until now?

    This reeks of Illuminati panic-rumors.

    No. Not buying into it. Actions like this…virtually impossible to keep it a secret for this long. Had it truly taken place it would have been made public decades ago and not now.

  5. We will be getting help from our Republicans in congress. The amendment that is good states that the Federal Government will NOT fund this superhighway. I sent it to ya’ll.

  6. Yup. All true. All of those involved should have been tried for treason and hung. Unfortunately, many of them are still alive and doing their best to run our beautiful country into the ground. And they’re succeeding.

  7. why are all of you guys who state no conspiracy blogging comments without revealing your identity. these are facts, congressional hearings were held. our country is under siege by secret societies who are not secret anymore and soon to be annihalted and set back another 100 years as they are forced into the light. You guys sound like Skull or Bilderberg or CFR members blogging to make people think it there is a conspiracy. Conspiracy, like paranoia is confounded by facts, these are facts, not conspiratorial presumptions. The comment from dianarn is best as it points to the fact that the resurgence of this coup through their spoiled rotten children gandchildren is fully underway for a few generations, having operated in secrecy but no with the Skulls, Bilderbergs and CFR exposed, it is a matter of time till we smack them back again, hopefully this time they will be tried for treason and warmongering crimes. Cheney has impeachment articles that name him as a war criminal, and after vote in the house were moved to the Judiciary Committee where they factually exist as filed by Kucenich.
    We are under siege, not by conspiracists but by very real Nazi sympathizers and the NWO. I think it is all about the sick ubber wealthy trying to maintain control of their fortunes through crime but we will see.
    Best to this blog in continuing to expose the facts and thanks to the anonymous bloggers trying to claim it a conspiracy in light of the facts, how NWO.
    Down with King George and his clan of fools,
    Eliot Ivan Bernstein, Inventor

  8. Skull and Bones, like their buddies, the Rothschilds, fund both sides of every dialectic. They funded both the Bolshevik Revolution and Hitler’s war machine. Anyone who can’t figure this out is a coward, an idiot, an agent or just another corrupt psychopath. Do not take them seriously because they don’t deserve the time of day. Keep exposing the truth to the public in general so that they may become better educated.

  11. Sorry, an upgrade to WordPress caused the above pages to go AWOL for awhile. New links to the referenced articles…

    Truly Creative Destruction –

    Bush Will Pardon Himself… –

    Also, an overview of the Bush/Cheney misadministration’s entire agenda –

    Cliff Notes version: They purposely set out to obliterate our existing political and financial structures, in hopes of establishing a new age of Lords (themselves, of course) and Serfs (We The Peons).

    The top two percent now own more than fifty percent of the nation’s assets, so a big old “Good job, Brownie!” is in order.

    Each time the same fiends and their proteges rear their ugly heads – every 15-20 years – they come closer to achieving their ultimate goal. That is why we MUST reinstate the Rule of Law in the United States of America, including full investigation and prosecution of criminals. If we do not, there will be NO reason for them to not rise up and do all of this again – and worse – to our children and grandchildren.
