Bush's Grandfather Attempted Coup on American President

Apparently, George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was part of a right-wing conspiracy to overthrow FDR and institute a fascist government.

The BBC has the goods.

"Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen.

The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell Hse & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.

Mike Thomson investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat to American democracy."

For perspective on this story, see this essay.

Oh no!.......

You mean the threat level hit red?.........Time to fire up the re loader. Hummm? Bring'em on!

"beat the great depression"

I believe these same individuals were instrumental in inducing the Great Depression with the Federal Reserve.

Where are the innumerable....

....books and movies about this conspiracy? Why isn't it famous? Why isn't Smedley Butler famous and universally revered as a national hero?

I bet a lot of people had never heard of this attempted coup until they started investigating 9/11. Just like the concept (and prevelance) of false-flag terror.

9/11 Truth is the Real Peace Movement

Not only Prescott Bush, but

members of the Heinz family are also listed among the consporators, according to BBC. How interesting!

There's also a book on the plot - "The Plot to Seize the White House", by Jules Archer. (Haven't gotten around to it yet, so I can't comment.)

Fascism I wonder how that happened

Don't you like how in the prez election 2004 it was the Heinz family against the Bush Family. or are they the same criminal network?

Fascism I wonder how that haappened

Wel all

need to know it and spread the information. I knew about Smedley Butler having prevented it. Because he was a patriot citizen. I stupidly figured most knew about this already and I was just playing 'catch-up'.

About Grandpa Bush. And the rest of the Bush clan. Members of t he wannabee *Royalty*. Relatively lower level, of course.

google butler roosevelt coup and you'll find other articles and web sites devoted to this. One that deserves a look (I only perused it though) is The Smedley Butler Society at http://warisaracket.org/index.html

There is much there on the whole issue .... Beyond Butler's immediate role.
