Sound track liner notes for Nixon's Apollo. part 2.
5. Nixon's Apollo Main Theme Suspicious Minds.
A huge influence on the present theory is this Elvis song which he recorded just two days after Nixon's inauguration. The version being used on the
soundtrack includes the moment where Elvis sings the part "Let's don't' let a good thing die , No honey, I'll never, never lie to you. No, not much,
yeah, yeah." Some versions don't have that exact same section.
""Suspicious Minds" was a product of January 23, 1969 session, that took place between 4 am and 7 am." en.wikipedia.org...
"The song is about a mistrusting and dysfunctional relationship, and the need of the characters to overcome their issues in order to maintain it.
Written by Mark James in 1968"
"We're caught in a trap, I can't walk out, because I love you too much baby." refers to the long financial/political dysfunctional relationship
between Hughes & Nixon, as "a trap". It may also be a "trap" in the sense that Apollo 8 (which Nixon quickly capitalized on) got Nixon hooked on the
moon missions (as propaganda) he had no choice but to follow along with Hughes idea for another "dress rehearsal" with the Apollo 10. Shortly after,
the two moon landings (Apollo 11, 12). The heroic final episode was Apollo 13, the "Marooned" episode, should have been the final film in the series,
(Side note: In April 1970, Apollo 13 had failed, Nixon announced his invasion of Cambodia on live Tv to distract the public from the failure. The anti
war movement hits a new stride. There was sadness at Kent State. Even Nixon tried to push the story about the Kent Statte "sniper", he wanted his
people to get that story out in the papers. The problem was, it was bulloney. There never was a "sniper". Nixon sensed that there was time for more
moon landings in his first term. Nixon makes the decision to keep Apollo 14, 15, 16 and 17 to be used as propaganda distraction during his entire
Six months later, Howard Hughes packed secretly left the Desert Inn and there was a major shift in Nevada operations, Bob Maheu's employment was
terminated by Hughes. After some shake ups, the Apollo program moved forward, with new NASA administrator and former Hughes scientist, James Fletcher,
a Mormon, and it's probably just a coincidence that the people who moved in to surround Hughes were nick named the Mormon Mafia.
Memos between Maheu and Hughes during this time also suggest a dysfunctional relationship. Remember, that Maheu had been with Hughes since 1957, he
became the chief of Nevada Operations for Hughes when hughes moved to Las Vegas in 1966. Maheu ran the money-laundering Las Vegas casinos that allowed
Hughes to buy anything, everything, including people, companies, executives, astronauts, network news anchors, e v e r y t h i n g, "unlimited expense
Speaking of trust in relationships, some sources say that Howard Hughes found Mormons, in general, to be trust worthy people because they did not
smoke or drink or take drugs and they were discreet. (This should not be construed a personal attack on Mormons. - SJ).
6. Intermission. Promised Land.
This one is fairly interesting. Elvis sings about a multi-hop journey across the United States. It begins in Norfolk, Virginia (think US Navy
shipyards, NASA Langley research center and CIA HQ.) Then it proceeds westward… here are the locations mentioned in the song.
a. "Norfolk" Virginia
b. "Raleigh" and "Caroline" in North Carolina
c. "Half way across Alabam" possible reference to Huntsville, home of the Wernher von Braun rocket group.
d. "Downtown Birmingham", located south of Huntsville
e. "riden' across Mississippi clean" means no stops in Mississippi.
f. "New Orleans", and "Louisiana"
g. "Houston town", location of the Manned Spacecraft Center, now named for LBJ
h. "Albuquerque", located nearby is White Sands missile test range and Alamogordo.
i. "The Golden state", is California
j. "Los Angeles", means Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Culver City, Hughes Aircraft, Whittier (Richard Nixon's home town growing up.)
k. Tidewater Four Ten 0 Nine = 41009. This is a reference to a telephone number in "Tidewater" Virginia and that is the format for old USA telephone
numbers. A person making a call would pick up the phone and ask the operator to connect to "Tidewater # # # #". The operator would use patch cords to
connect the long distance line and ring the telephone at the other end. Sort of like that.
7. Russian Space Overture. Fools Rush In.
A play on words, "russian" and "rush in". The Soviets are content to let the American "fools" Hughes & Nixon "rush in" to claim the moon landings with
the American satellite Tv propaganda. Soviet's actually had all the means to perform a lunar orbit mission to beat Apollo 8 in late 1968. They had the
Zond / Proton system. They were boasting about it in the news papers. Soviet Russia at the time was mightily distracted by the Warsaw Pact invasion of
Czechoslovakia, also late 1968.
Meanwhile, the Soviet's have not been higher than 475km and they made that altitude way way back in March 1965.
For some reason, the Russians did not "rush in" to the Van Allen belts and they have stayed in low earth orbit for 49 years.-- the American's
did rush in
to the Van Allen belts. "So open up your heart and let this fool rush in". "This fool" being Richard Nixon.
The song itself is a vocal standard from 1940. en.wikipedia.org...
8. Howard's Plot Twist. It's Your Baby, You Rock It.
Another play on words, "you rock it" is "Your rocket". The theme of dysfunctional relationships continues.
After the Apollo 13 "Marooned" mission Howard Hughes goes on permanent hiatus persona incognito. He leaves Las Vegas and retreats to the Bahamas. He
tried to tell Nixon "it's your baby, you rock it" with the Apollo films. Nixon came running back to Hughes "crying on my should like a baby" for help
producing the final Apollo missions in the first term of office, the missions which would solidify the United States as world leader and Richard Nixon
as the Conqueror. This will be very valuable to Nixon during his negotiations with China and Russia.
Hughes is "tired of hearing about it friend - it's your baby, you rock it." Ultimately, Hughes could not resist the allure of smashing the Commies
again with Apollo 14 and again 15, 16 and 17. The "lady" is Apollo and the "baby" is the evidence, moon rocks, negatives, etc.
