Samuel Bush, Prescott Bush financial backers -- Rockefeller Eugenics

Samuel Bush, Prescott Bush financial backers -- Rockefeller Eugenics

Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research - Links

The Rockefeller clan had a powerful control over the Bush ancestors. Samuel Prescott Bush (grandfather to George Herbert Walker Bush and great-grandfather to George Walker Bush) Was employed by John D Rockefeller's brother Frank at Buckeye Steel Castings Company. Sam Bush succeeded as president of Buckeye when Frank Rockefeller retired. Sam Bush was also director of William Rockerfeller's interests in the Pennsysvania Railroad, and was enlisted to aid Percy Rockefeller's Remington Arms get more government business during WWI. Sam Bush's son Prescott Sheldon Bush was an eugenicist on record, lost his first election attempt as Connecticut senator when it was revealed that he was Treasurer of Planned Parenthood in Connecticut. As usual Bush lied about his past. Prescott Bush's connection to eugenics is listed elsewhere. This collection is assembled just to demonstrate John D. Rockefeller's ties to the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research eugenics mentality. Step by step the story becomes clear about supporting mass murder willfully, deliberately, intentionally, knowingly. Results 130 for "Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research" Eugenics.

In the United States as in Europe, eugenics had become fused with the tenets of Social Darwinism and Racial Hygiene. The nation's key eugenic organizations funded by the Rockefeller, Harriman and Carnegie families included the American Eugenics Society (AES), and its sister organization, the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) established in 1947, the Cold Springs Harbor Experimental Station for the Study of Evolution, the Eugenic Record Office, and the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. They promoted eugenic counseling, selective mating and artificial insemination as "positive" means of breeding superior human stock and compulsory sterilization and euthanasia as forms of "negative" eugenics to weed out "inferior" or "unfit" human stock.

To begin, during this time, John D. Rockefeller and his associates were making a concerted effort to control the entire field of medicine in America. During the 1890s, Rockefeller interests in medical education and "scientific medicine" were spearheaded by Frederick T. Gates, John D. Rockefeller's investment manager. 1901 saw the founding of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. In 1902, Rockefeller's General Education Board was founded with a mission to annihilate the causes of racial discords. This agenda was clarified two years later with the publication of John D. Rockefeller's Occasional Letter No. 1 in which he detailed his plans to mold Americans to his concept of "perfect human nature." This, he claimed, might best be accomplished by destroying parental influence, traditions and customs, while reducing national intelligence levels.

In 1904, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (home to today's Human Genome Project) was built on the estates of John Foster and Allen Dulles, lawyers for the Rockefeller Standard Oil Company. The Dulles Brothers, who openly professed John D. Rockefeller's racial hygiene doctrines, later directed the U.S. military's Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and after World War II, the CIA. Charles B. Davenport constructed the Cold Spring Harbor facility to provide a home for racial hygiene research, what was then called "eugenics research." The first racial hygiene laws in the world evolved from investigations and reports issued from here. The John D. Rockefeller and Averell Harriman, America's wealthiest oil and railroad magnates, invested more than $11 million-an extraordinary fortune at that time-in funding this facility. Soon thereafter, in 1909, the first genetics laboratory was established at the Rockefeller Institute and directed by Dr. Phoebus Aaron Theodor Levene.

By 1907, medical education had been mostly monopolized by the Rockefeller consortium. That year, the American Medical Association (AMA) advanced its medical education rating system effectively eliminating, by 1918, approximately 600 of the initial 650 medical schools.

J.D. Rockefeller’s philanthropy has been much lauded. Even as a student, he reportedly gave donations to his Baptist church and to foreign Sunday schools. By 1900, he offered to buy a whole church for Baptist preacher Thomas Dixon, a former, southern politician who was then flogging his white supremacist gospel in New York. But from the pulpit, Dixon’s fiery tirades against “creeping negroidism” didn’t reach enough people, so he took up writing respectable, romantic novels about the KKK. He churned out two dozen books. The Clansman, his race-baiting best seller, extolled the Klan’s role in redeeming the South. In 1915, it was made into a movie, called The Birth of a Nation. Endorsed by President Wilson, the film helped revive this dreaded terrorist organization.

Rockefeller’s great generosity was aimed largely at medical education, perhaps because of his father’s career and its peculiar contributions to medicine. J.D.Rockefeller, being a high school dropout, was not well-suited to his new role as godfather of the country’s centres for higher learning. His philanthropy was permeated with extremely racist views. In 1901, the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research was created. In 1902, the General Education Board (GEB) began four decades of tremendously controversial influence over American schools and universities.

That same year, J.D. Rockefeller and Averell Harriman, a business partner of Prescott Bush and George Herbert Walker in Brown Brothers Harriman, gave $11 million to create the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Built on Manhattan property owned by the Dulles brothers, it spawned America’s ground-breaking “eugenics” research and the world’s first “racial hygiene” laws. By 1907, Rockefeller funding was heavily influencing America’s medical institutions. The Rockefeller Institute created the first genetics lab in 1909. The following year, the Eugenics Research Association and the Eugenics Records Office were founded near Cold Spring Harbor, New York, on land donated by the widow of Averell Harriman. In 1911, John Foster Dulles summed up eugenics, saying that by eliminating “the weakest members of the population” a purer race could be created.

-1901 John D. Rockefeller  (1839-1937) family founded Standard Oil Co. (now ExxonMobil) and National City Bank (later Citibank).

He founded the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, which quickly became a funding conduit for eugenics research.   He was also one of the main supporters of the Eugenics Records Office--the eugencists' "think tank."  Such backing has produced results in America as well as overseas.

It was Rockefeller who financed the foundation of the Kaiser Wilhem Institute, and gave Ernst Rudin (one of Hitler's right hand man) the keys to an entire floor of the building for his genetic research in the 1920's.

The German Mental Hygiene Movement was also another heavily subsidized program by Rockefeller and thereby placed into a caveat position to continue its goals and objectives to the bitter...bitter...end.

Unsurprisingly, Dr. Alexis Carrel of the Rockefeller Institute and a Nobel Prize Winner publically applauded Hitler's Germany for blatantly advocating the mass murder of mental patients and prisoners.

The Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research -- founded in 1901 by John D. Rockefeller, was one of the most influential promoters of eugenics in the U.S. and abroad, and later played a prominent role in the eugenics activities of the National Foundation / March of Dimes. (49) From 1909-1939, the Rockefeller Institute housed French-born Nobel prize winner, Dr. Alexis Carrell, who proposed in his 1935 best-seller, Man, the Unknown, that small euthanasia stations be equipped with suitable gases to "humanely and economically" dispose of the mentally ill and cimrinal class, described as "useless and harmful beings." (50) A specialist in the articial propagation of living tissues, Professor Carrell insisted that his lab technicians at the Institute wear black robes and hoods and bow whenever in the presence [of] his favorite icon, a glass-enclosed chicken heart, which Carrel had preserved in vitro for 33 years.

According to Schreiber, the Rockefellers helped establish the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Germany which housed Professor Ernest Rudin, the chief architect of the Third Reich's infamous "Sterilization Law" and the system of Hereditary Health Courts which ordered eugenics sterilizations to be carried out.

In 1870 Rockefeller, along with his associates and older brother William, incorporated his petroleum holdings into the Standard Oil Company (Ohio). Rockefeller bought out his competitors or put them out of business through tactics that included price cutting and the acquisition of such supporting enterprises as pipelines, oil terminals, and cooperage plants. By 1881, when Rockefeller formed a trust with nine directors to control Standard Oil and its affiliates, he had a near monopoly of the petroleum industry in the United States. Rockefeller was also prominent in the affairs of railroads and banks, being second only to J. P. Morgan in the domain of finance.

When the United States Steel Corporation was formed (1901), Rockefeller was one of the directors. From 1897 Rockefeller had turned his interests toward philanthropy. He funded the Baptist Church, the YMCA, and to the Anti-Saloon League, and founded (1892) and endowed the University of Chicago, ultimately giving the school more than 80 million dollars. He endowed major philanthropic institutions, including the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, founded (1901) in New York City and since 1965 known as  Rockefeller University, the General Education Board (1902), organized (1902) to make gifts to various educational and research agencies; the Rockefeller Foundation (1913), established to promote public health and to further the medical, natural, and social sciences; and the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Memorial Foundation (1918), named for his late wife.   [6]

Meanwhile, John D. Rockefeller had been busy. By 1880, Rockefeller owned or controlled 95% of all oil produced in the United States. Shortly after the turn of the century, Rockefeller became America's first billionaire. (12) It was around the turn of the century that Rockefeller began to give money to the Foundations, Funds, Research Centers and Institutes that would promote all the drugs his chemists churned out in the years to come.

The most richly endowed research center - the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research - was established in New York in 1902. By 1928 it had received from John D. $65 million in endowment funds. In contrast, as late as 1938, as little as $2.8 million in federal funding was budgeted for the entire U.S. Public Health Service. (13) By 1929, the Rockefeller Foundation, first created in 1909, had received $300 million. (14)

"Eugenics" or "good genes" was a science based on "social Darwinism" or "survival of the fittest" applied to humans. It was very popular with those who had most of the wealth and felt like they needed a scientific rationale for it - to validate the great poverty and suffering that also would occur. After 1900, Rockefeller, along with the Harriman family - the family that gave the Bush family it's start - began to spend million on "eugenics" research. (15)

In 1901 the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in New York was founded by Rockefeller with $60,000,000 to "advance and disseminate knowledge of the nature, causes, treatment and prevention of disease." (1) William H. Welch (S&B 1870) is the first  President. (26),(109) Simon Flexner is appointed the first director. (48) [See note 16]
