    Multi-billionaire Wall Street bankers the Rockefellers sold $30 million worth of aviation fuel additive via their Standard Oil operation, to the Nazi regime in 1939. Without this additive the Blitzes could not have happened. Evidence buried in Congressional records. Anthony Sutton talked about how Wall Street and the City of London and the Bush family (Prescott Bush - George Dubya's grandpa) bankrolled the Nazi military industrial complex from the 1930s onwards. Google Anthony Sutton and Wall Street/Nazis. He was suppressed then and this info is suppressed now. Wall Street and City of London also funnelled money into Nazi Germany via the Bank for International Settlements set up in Switzerland in 1932 by Bank of ENgland governor and cousin of Queen Elizabeth Windsor (Saxe Coburg Gotha) and Nazi finance minister Hjalmar Schacht. Webster Tarpley on tarpley.net discusses these issues and how Prescott Bush was arrested in 1942 but let off the hook by CIA buddies the Dulles brothers.
