Here is some of the info about Standard Oil’s treason:
Standard Oil also taught the Nazi German chemical company I.G. Farben how to make tetraethyl lead and add it to gasoline to make leaded gasoline. That information was priceless, since leaded gas was essential for modern mechanized warfare. One I.G. Farben memo noted Standard Oil’s help in procuring $20 million worth of aviation fuel. "The fact that we actually succeeded by means of the most difficult of negotiations in buying the quantity we needed… and transporting it to
Germany, was made possible only through the aid of the Standard Oil Company (emphases added)."According to a l992 article in the Village Voice, Brown Brothers Harriman was the Wall
Street investment firm that arranged for a loan of tetraethyl lead to the Nazi Luftwaffe in l938. A senior managing partner of the firm was George Bush’s father, Prescott Bush. (It’s A
Conspiracy l25-7).< p In a reference adding to this information, Bowen tells us thatStandard Oil remained in partnership with Farben in the matter of tetraethyl lead, an additive used in aviation gasoline. Goering’s air force couldn’t fly without it… The result was that Hitler’s air force was rendered capable of bombing London. And by supplying Japan with tetraethyl, Teagle helped make it possible for the Japanese to wage WorldWar2.(Bowen2-11) In regard to William Stamps Farrish, a name which was to be closely associated with the Bush family for three
entire generations preceding, during and after World War II, Higham had this to say:
“William Stamps Farrish… was mesmerized by Germany… [H]e staffed the Standard Oil tankers with Nazi crews. When war broke out in Europe, he ran into trouble with British
Intelligence, which boarded some of his vessels outside U.S territorial waters on the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards and seized Nazi agents who were passengers…When the British began
interrogating Nazi crews on the Hitler-Standard connection, Farrish fired the Germans and changed the registry of the entire fleet to Panamanian to avoid British search and seizure. His
vessels carried oil to Tenerife in the Canary Islands, where they refueled and siphoned oil to German tankers for shipment to Hamburg. They also fueled U-boats even after the American
government… was fighting an undeclared war in the Atlantic…Standard tankers supplied the submarines which… sank American ships…” (Higham, Trading 35-6).
“At last [Ickes] found an ally who had the courage to confront [Standard Oil] in Washington: Thurman Arnold…Standard underwent a process of law in the criminal courts of Newark,
New Jersey. This was a technicality to satisfy public opinion (at first). The charges of criminal conspiracy with the enemy were dropped in return for Standard releasing its patents and
paying the modest fines (of $l0,000-20,000)…On March 26, l941, Arnold appeared before the Truman Committee (in Congress) …in order to lay in front of the committee his specific charges against the oil company…He showed how Farrish had flagrantly disregarded Lend-Lease and good neighbor policies in his connivance with Hitler. He zeroed in on the subject of synthetic rubber, pointing out that it had been denied to the U.S. Navy, and that Farrish…had deliberately sidetracked a Navy representative from seeing the process. He charged that cables showed Standard’s arrangements with Japan that were to continue throughout any conflict or break in trade. Leaving the Senate chamber on March 28, l941, surrounded by lots of reporters and photographers, Truman was asked, ‘Is this treason?’ He replied in the affirmative.” (Higham, Trading 42-53).
