With all the money that would be needed to run a top secret base like Area 51 in the middle of the Nevada desert wouldn't the casinos be a perfect way to pay for it? Also, how would they power such a base in the mid 1940's? Maybe Hover Dam.

Area 51 didn't exist in the '40s, that I know of. The Feds probably used Howard Hughes' fortune to initially purchase and develop land in Nevada and keep it out of the public eye (i.e. budget). Hughes' money was used for other covert projects like the Glomar Explorer, a ship specifically built to salvage a Soviet nuclear submarine from the ocean floor. Hughes' fortune was also used to purchase Vegas casinos alternately for both the CIA and the Mob in a puzzling scheme seemingly designed to vacuum as much wealth as possible from the mentally & physically ailing billionaire. This operation is described by former National Security Council employee Roger Morris in the following book that raises questions about possible collusion between the government and organized crime.

Hoover Dam does supply electricity to the entire region but the primary reason for its creation was to supply water and power to southern California. It made Las Vegas possible though.

An interesting aspect of the casino economy is its potential for providing unaccountable monies for covert projects. When you go to a casino and lose $250 at the roulette wheel do you get a receipt for your entertainment? No, you don't. It's just like throwing the money into a black hole; god only knows where it goes from there. It hasn't generated any records - therefore it's possible to deny its very existence, to a degree.

I believe Hover dam was completed some time in 1945.

hover dam.

Hoover Dam was built from 1930 to 1935
726.4 feet high and the Dam's crest is 1,244 feet across
660 feet thick at the base and is 45 feet thick at the top
Maximum water pressure at the base is 45,000 pounds per square foot

Hoover Dam was a depression era Works project funded by the federal government?

Black projects are rumoured to be funded via criminal activity though.

I suppose The state Gaming Control Board of Las Vegas and/or some of the "new" players on the strip like Steve Winn would be involved at some level.

yeah and much of Vegas is now owned by New York listed corporations. makes you wonder if there is creative accounting going on there?

probably from drug money I doubt LV casinos in funding area 51. That is still mafia and the feds wont touch it. And besides area 51 is so compartametlized we will probably never know who is running the show.

Personally it wouldn't surprise me to find out the mafia was involved.

If you think about it very throughly, I think you'll conclude that cooperation and coordination between organized crime and domestic intelligence services is a critical necessity for national security.

Condorcet,

a lot of logic in that statement. I always saw the gangsters spying for intelligence agencies too.

The Hover Dame would be able to power a hell of alot more than one USAF base in the desert. Yet, I doubt that the base is funded by casinos...some of those casinos are indipendant companies with no relation to the base at all.

Good question. However I think bogus Moon and Mars missions are better ways at generating big bucks fast. But Vegas would still be useful. How many people dissapear there every year, and how spirited people are accused of cheating and possibly registered for their distant viewing programs, many of them are never seen again? Abducted by the SUSA?

Did you know that Nasa in Hebrew means the Messiah or the flag of God? What then when they call themselves NASA but obviously support the Ba'als of Greece and Rome?

Blessings,

Ive heard some people say that area 51 is used to funnel narcotics to the American public. If they were secretly connected to the Las Vegas casinos it would be a perfect relationship. They could launder the proceeds through the casinos to make it legit. Like someone on this thread mentioned, people arent given receipts from their gambling. It would be impossible to track the money because they dont record where they got their money.

Isn't JANET (the airline that takes the Area-51 workers to the base) run out of the Las Vegas airports or something?

Yes, Janet" is the call sign for the flights that shuttle workers back and forth between Area 51, TTR and Las Vegas. Each weekday about 20 flights in each direction transport between 1000 and over 1500 workers from LAs Vegas to their jobs at Area 51 and at the Tonopah Test Range. The first Janet plane lands at Groom at 4:35am. Its bright landing lights have often been mistaken for a UFO.
