Corruption of blood 

The lefty bloggers are running with the old story that Prescott Bush traded with Germany during World War II, rendered "respectable" in this article from The Guardian. Never mind that the links are extremely tenuous:
While there is no suggestion that Prescott Bush was sympathetic to the Nazi cause, the documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen's US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.

So Bush's grandfather served on the board of an international investment bank that worked with a German financier who supported Hitler before "falling out with him" before World War II began. It's enough to make you wonder whether the H.J. Heinz corporation has ever sold products in Iraq, or whether any of John Kerry's French cousins have worked for companies that traded with Iraq. And I simply refuse to be so snarky as to bring up Joseph Kennedy's sympathy for Nazi Germany.

The Guardian article is a fascinating exploration of the pre-World War II business ventures of Prescott Bush, although it is quite selective in the conspiracies that it uncovers:
Prescott Bush, a 6ft 4in charmer with a rich singing voice, was the founder of the Bush political dynasty and was once considered a potential presidential candidate himself. Like his son, George, and grandson, George W, he went to Yale where he was, again like his descendants, a member of the secretive and influential Skull and Bones student society.

Of course, John Kerry was also a member of Skull and Bones, so it is either bi-partisan in its selectivity and catholic in its influence, or it is neither.

It is interesting to me that a site called "Americablog" would promote corruption of blood, the ultimate un-American idea. The left is getting desperate.

I wonder if the Heinz corporation, which was founded in 1869, was somehow the offshoot of or bought supplies from a company that, just a few years earlier, had used slaves as part of their labor force? That in itself would prevent it from getting government contracts in Chicago and San Francisco.

Do I have this LiberalLogic Version -10000000.0 down right? Will CBS 60 NanosecondsOfTruth II do an investigative story and expose this horrendous scandal?

Geesh. Yeah, the password is Desperate—with a capital D.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about penis enlargement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about penis enlargement reviews related articles and subjects.
