GOD BLESS AMERICA

Nov1934, famed double Medal of Honor winner Gen Smedley Butler gave secret testimony before Hse McCormack-Dickstein Cmte of a plot headed by a group of wealthy businessmen to establish a fascist dictatorship US counterpunch.org/2011/12/02/wal…
Major Gen Smedley D Butler testified he was recruited for a Military Coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt by American Liberty League organizers led by John D Rockefeller, duPont family & JP Morgan & group of ultra-wealthy including George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush.
Marine General Butler was approached by Gerald P. MacGuire of Wall Street’s Grayson M-P Murphy & Co.

MacGuire claimed they would assemble an army of 500,000 mostly unemployed WWI veterans & #marchonwashington
Butler went along with the plot until he could learn the identities of all the schemers. Not a one of them was ever called to testify or was charged with #Treason.

Virtually all of them were founding members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
The plutocrats wanted Butler to lead the #coup, thinking that, like the Bolsheviks, taking one major city (DC as Petrograd) would lead to the fall of the government.
Money was funneled thru the Sen. Prescott Bush-led Union Banking Corporation (yes, those Bushes)

and the Prescott Bush-led Brown Brothers Harriman (yes, that Harriman) to the American Liberty League
Plotters bragged abt Bush’s Hitler connections, even claimed Germany had promised Bush it would provide $$ for coup

The claim was believable: a yr earlier, Chevrolet president William Knudsen (who donated $10,000 to the League) went to Germany & met Nazi leaders
Upon his return he declared Hitler’s Germany was “the miracle of 20th century.” GM’s wholly-owned Opal Co already begun producing the Nazi’s tanks, trucks & bomber engines.

Most of Americans top name brands bought into the coup led by the cabal of super wealthy
James D. Mooney, GM’s vice-president for foreign operations was joined by Henry Ford and IBM chief Tom Watson in receiving the Grand Cross of the German Eagle from Hitler for their considerable efforts on behalf of the Third Reich.
We must install a Fascist Leader to Save Capitalism... top company CEOs joined in
Quickly Corp MSM led a Butler smear “It was all idle cocktail party chatter”

1934-36 Liberty got 35 pro-League @nytimes Front Page stories & ridiculed Butler in 1934 cover story, even though he was corroborated by VFW head James E. Van Zandt,also was approached to lead the coup.
