Nixon's Apollo : Dress rehearsal. Part 3.

Richard Nixon's Secret Service codename was Searchlight and Pat's was Starlight.

May 22 1969: The actual Apollo 10 Dress Rehearsal
Thursday, Nixon has breakfast at 735am. It's normal business, phone calls and meetings.

Charlie Brown is separated from Snoopy for about 8 hours from May 22, 1969, 19:00:57 UTC to May 23, 1969, 03:11:02 UTC.The Apollo 10 dress rehearsal starts approximately 1500 local Washington time, and lasts about 8 hours, until 2311 local time, according to the clock.

Nixon met with a group of industrial leaders for 20 minutes including Fred Borch Pres. of General Electric, Russell De Young, Chairman of Goodyear; R.V. Hansberger, Pres. of Boise Cascade; Jack Horton, Pres. Southern California Edison; F.R. Kappel, Chairman of AT&T; Barry Leithead, Chairman of Peabody&Co; Albert Nickerson, Chairman of Mobil Oil and T.F. Patton, Chairman & Pres. of Republic Steel, between 445pm and 506pm local time.

Nixon met with Congressman George H. W. Bush from 510pm - 535pm local time.

May 23 1969
Charlie Brown and Snoopy are separated for the last time on Friday May 23, 1969, 05:13:36 UTC. The President attended a band concert in the White House Rose Garden. There was a Medal of Honor ceremony, the American Bar Association dropped by the Rose Garden, then a 30 minute helicopter ride back to Camp David where Nixon went to the "Bowling Alley" and allegedly bowled from 420pm to 6pm.

Nixon screened "A Man for All Seasons (1966)" Friday night at Camp David and according to Secret Service diaries he spent the night in the Camp David residence.

"A Man for All Seasons" (1966) is "The story of Thomas More, who stood up to King Henry VIII when the King rejected the Roman Catholic Church to obtain a divorce and remarriage." Having a small role in "Seasons" was Orson Welles, the hoaxer, of 1938 production of War of the Worlds.

May 24 1969
After 31 orbits, Apollo 10 finally departed the moon. Saturday morning Richard Nixon went to the "Bowling Alley" again for about one hour. Nixon returned from Camp David in the afternoon took a 2-hour boating trip with "C.G. Rebozo" on the presidential yacht, "Sequoia". An opportunity to use the satellite phone technology to coordinate with Howard Hughes.

May 25 1969
Sunday. Nixon and First Lady attend church services in the East Room of the White House. Nixon and First Lady visited African delegations at the Liberian Embassy.

May 26 1969
A very busy Monday for the President. Nixon swore in Donald Rumsfeld in the Rose Garden. Rumsfeld will be the 3rd Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity. Apollo 10 splashed down in the Pacific. May 26, 1969, 16:52:23 UTC (that's Tuesday, May 26, 1969 at 06:52 local Honolulu time)

About two hours after Charlie Brown splashdown The President took three minutes out of his busy day to speak to the crew of the Apollo 10 aboard the USS Princeton in the Pacific Ocean, from 243pm to 246pm, local time in Washington D.C. Later, in the evening he spent two hours with Henry Kissinger and attended the dinner for UK Conservative Party leader Edward Heath, from 805pm until 1050pm.

Nixon's Apollo: Howard Hughes, Astronaut

December 24th will be Howard Hughes' official 'corporate' birthday; it's the birthday you will see in all the encyclopedias and news articles, however,

Hughes claimed his birthday was Christmas Eve, but according to his baptismal records he was actually born on the more mundane date of September 24. Source

Robert Maheu, ex-FBI, ex-CIA, second in control of Hughes Nevada operations, once said in this 2004 interview that Howard wanted to be an astronaut. It's just an anecdote, for sure, but I believe that it will continue to bring back good dividends in the Nixon's Apollo theory.

Maheu said some of the aerospace industry had its roots in Hughes Aircraft Company and that in the 1960s Howard Hughes gave the directions and ran the show. He wanted to be an astronaut, Maheu said.

In the mid-1960s, when four-fifths of the world did not have the capability for instantaneous communications, a Hughes-built communications satellite went into space and became the first vehicle of its type to create the information delivery system that now is often taken for granted, Maheu said. Source

This is the only quote I have ever found that indicates Howard Hughes wanted to be an astronaut. It may be right, it may be wrong, but I haven't seen anyone seriously question 'Iron Bob' Maheu's integrity, remember, this is the guy who also told the HSCA about his involvement in the poison-pill plot to kill Castro. Maheu would have been considered a hero by both Hughes and Richard Nixon.

I thought it would be fun to explore the idea that Howard Robard Hughes, Jr., as the surrogate astronaut for Apollo mission, the replacement astronaut, was the man who flew to the moon instead of the public astronauts, and perhaps more than once.

Before I do that I wanted to make sure to explain (and remind) that this is the ATS Skunk Works which allows and encourages a flagrant disrespect for the official narratives. The official narratives say that NASA sent 9 manned missions to the moon. The Nixon's Apollo theory includes Howard Hughes flying on one, some, or all of those manned Apollo lunar missions.

It seems like a long shot , I know yet, there are some compelling footnotes to the official Apollo narratives that include the timing of the Hughes seclusion (1957-1972), the Nixon comeback (1968), the Elvis comeback (1968), the use of satellite technologies for propaganda (Apollo missions 1968-1972 and the Elvis Aloha TV Special, 1973), Hughes special ability as a movie producer/test pilot, Nixon's special ability for forming teams and running clandestine projects, e.g. Operation 40 and Paperclip.

And I can tie this all together because Hughes and Nixon both wrote on yellow legal pads. The yellow legal pads are just a small, colorful anecdote that adds to the cohesiveness of the theory (fingers crossed!)

Hughes paid John Wayne $750,000 to star in "The Conqueror" (1956)". That production of that film has a backstory about radiation and cancer, there are a lot of sources, just google John Wayne Conqueror Cancer and you should find a heap of sources regarding this controversy.

Richard Nixon screened "The Conqueror" (1956)" on August 7, 1971.

The Conqueror, along with Ice Station Zebra,[6] is said to be one of the films Hughes watched endlessly during his last years.[7] Source

The exterior scenes were shot on location near St. George, Utah, 137 miles (220 km) downwind of the United States government's Nevada National Security Site.

Hughes later shipped 60 tons of dirt back to Hollywood in order to match the Utah terrain and lend verisimilitude to studio re-shoots. Source

The newspaper said that Apollo 12 brought back radioactive rocks. Howard Hughes could have got those rocks from the set of his movie, The Conqueror. Here are those radioactive moon rocks I was talking about...

Maybe it wasn't just dirt that was shipped back to Hollywood... perhaps it was dirt and rocks as well.

Another startling detail of the Apollo 12 mission is that mission Commander Pete Conrad took at least 3 Hasselblad cameras (7 total) to the moon BUT you will not find any candid images of Pete Conrad's face in any of those 2,000+ Hasselblad 70mm camera images. You will not find any candid images of Dick Gordon's greasy pompadour hair-do. Nor will you find any pictures of Alan Bean. Apollo 12 took thousands of 70mm pictures but none of each other, all the way to the moon and back. Remember, this is November of 1969. Richard Nixon is the president and Hughes is allegedly in seclusion at the Desert Inn....

Pete Conrad may have brought these radioactive rocks from Utah, the home of the Mormons, which also happens to be a good connection to the Mormon Mafia who surrounded and controlled Howard Hughes' life by drug abuse and neglect. All the way back to Hollywood, Romaine Street, Bill Gay and Nadine Henley, both Mormons.

The past 42 years has been spent covering up for Nixon's Apollo.

Nixon's Apollo: it reminds me of the labyrinth in Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" Why did the NASA doctors eventually change Alan Shepard's diagnosis from labyrinthitis to Ménière's disease? Nixon's Apollo is like one small labyrinth for man, one giant labyrinthitis for all mankind.

Nixon's Apollo: Films you could see in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City, June 19, 1970. The Deseret News. A 2-page spread of movie listings and entertainment offerings. Let's see what comes up in relationship to Nixon, Hughes or Apollo.

Here is the link to the google news archive for this issue so you can zoom in and look around.

A. Filmland Gossip about a potential romantic hook up between Howard Hughes and Jackie Onassis. Totally baseless? Hughes has been connected to Onassis in the Gemstone files.

B. Airport (1970). Starring Burt Lancaster, one of Richard Nixon's favorite actors. Check out my thread on Executive Action Mark Lane and Executive Action (1973) Starring Burt Lancaster.

C. Sleeping Beauty. Possibly a reference to Hughes himself or the name of a secret project? Disney was in producing films with von Braun in the 1950's, so that could also be a back door connection to Apollo.

D. Paint Your Wagon (1969). Both Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood were Nixon's favorites and he screened Paint Your Wagon on January 24 1970 at Camp David.

E. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). Screened by Nixon on May 19 of 1970 at Key Biscayne Florida. The word 'sundance' is seen again in reference to a summer theater in Provo.

F. The Moon is Blue. Reference to the hidden colors of the moon? Or a reference to the propaganda nature of Apollo images, many of which are not so subtle pornographic phallic symbols of male sexuality expressed though rocket and missile technology.

G. Marooned (1969). The timeframe of the Apollo 13 TV drama was back in April 11-17 of 1970. Gregory Peck is one of Nixon's favorites as was director John Sturges. This movie was in the theaters a lot in 1970. The entire plot of Marooned is an alternate script for Nixon's Apollo 13.

H. Godfather (1972) author Mario Puzo denies that he was paid $1,000,000 dollars by the mafia to write the book. Nixon screened it on April 21 1972 at Camp David. Hughes and Nixon are both godfathers in their own ways.

I. The Out-of-Towners (1970). Jack Lemmon. Nixon screened it July 25 1970 at San Clemente California.

J. The Cheyenne Social Club. Another pair of Nixon favorites, Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda. Screened by Nixon on June 6 1971 at Camp David. The tagline for the movie is "They make their own laws at the Cheyenne Social Club." which resonates with the Nixonian self-apology of "When the President does it, that means it is not illegal."

K. Patton. Notoriously screened by Nixon three times, before, during and after his invasion of Cambodia.
April 4 1970 at the White House.
April 25 1970 at the White House.
June 12 1970 at Key Biscayne.

L. Anne of a Thousand Days (1969).

Henry VIII of England discards one wife, Katharine of Aragon, who has failed to produce a male heir, in favor of the young and beautiful Anne Boleyn.
The tagline for the film was "He was King. She was barely eighteen. And in their thousand days they played out the most passionate and shocking love story in history." I don't know how this movie fits into Nixon's Apollo but Nixon screened it TWICE, February/?? 1970 at Camp David and again March 25 1973 at Key Biscayne, so it's worth noting it.

Nixon's Apollo: Pete, pass the popcorn.

All you need to do is look at this graphic for a moment and just try to realize the scene!

It's December 20th, 1969.

The Apollo 12 crew (&and their wives) have been invited to watch a movie and spend the night at Tricky Dick's White House Palace Theatre. The place is packed and cozy... the booze is flowing... everyone is happy & cheerful.

Dim the lights.

The curtain parts and the big screen projector shows what movie? from any thousands of possible movies? But what did they watch? That old standby classic for a fun night at the movies, "Marooned" (1969).

The film was released less than four months after the Apollo 11 moon landing and was tied to the public fascination with the event. It won an Academy Award for Visual Effects. Source wikipedia

You really are obsessed with the man. Ok, I'll bite, it was Richard Milhous Nixon.

I'm not sure what you are suggesting here. US politics is not my strong suit. Are you perhaps implying that Nixon set up a fake program back in the 1950s, which JFK then inherited and must have known about when he made his famous pledge to go to the moon, and JFK never said a word about it? If I discovered a massive plot carried out by my main election rival then I think I might try to make some political capital out of it, don't you?

Anyway, back to Apollo. Let's apply some Jupiter logic.

Apollo 8 was obviously genuine, because it was before the evil genius Nixon took control. So we know that Apollo was capable of taking men to lunar orbit and bringing them back safely.

Apollo 9: what say you on Apollo 9? It launched on March 3, which is what, six weeks after N-day. Tricky. If it was fake, that's a heck of a quick turnaround. Six weeks to plan and carry out a fake version of a mission that had already been announced in detail. If it was genuine, then hey - as well as circumlunar flight being possible, the genuine LM and PLSS both work just as they should. It's almost starting to look like we could just actually go to the moon and save ourselves some bother!

Apollo 10: the dress rehearsal. Nixon and his eccentric pal Howard had almost four months to get this one off the ground (or should I say pretend to get it off the ground? Where did the rocket that blasted off in Florida actually go if not out to the moon?) Was this one a fake or not? I'm confused.

Apollo 11: definitely fake, according to you.

So at what point did the great switch happen? Please explain in detail how the timeline worked in your world, where Nixon was pulling the strings.

Let's focus first on what is happening around the time of the 1968 election, Nixon's '68 Comeback.

James Webb quits NASA before Apollo 8. Deputy administrator Thomas O. Paine takes over NASA. I consider this to be part of the "great switch". In my Nixon's Apollo theory, James Webb, who ran NASA from the Kennedy administration, he quits NASA because he is aware of the shortcomings of the Apollo program and he wanted to be "out of the picture" by the time Nixon took office.... which leaves Thomas O. Paine with several boxes and bags of volcano rocks.

There is hard evidence that concludes Nixon was operating/interfering with international affairs prior to his election on November 5, 1968. In taped phone conversations LBJ flatly accused Nixon of treason. Google "Nixon treason" and you will find out all about it. This fact about Nixon's treason exemplifies his will to power.

On November 6, 1968, Richard Nixon is the president-elect. When Apollo 8 launches on December 21, 1968, Richard Nixon is the president-elect. When the Apollo 11 crew is announced to the public on January 9, 1969, it was Richard Nixon's birthday. What it means is that Nixon was executing his political will power before he was inaugurated on January 20, 1969. With James Webb out of the picture.

The president-elect does not just sit around waiting for inauguration day.... he is automatically included in national security briefings, including lot's of one-on-one time with the incumbent president. The president-elect is planning (and executing) his administration from the very moment he wins the election.

That's why I think it's important to look at the Apollo moon landings in relation with Nixon's '68 Comeback. That's why I am including Apollo 8 in with the Nixon's Apollo timeline because it makes sense that Nixon would win the election and immediately proceeded to order the televised propaganda Bible readings from cis-lunar space on Christmas Eve... Frank Borman's Apollo 8.

Apollo 9 was a low earth orbit mission, my investigations so far have not turned up anything out of the ordinary with Apollo 9.

Apollo 10, even NASA refers to this mission as the "dress rehearsal".

Of course, "dress rehearsal" is a phrase most often heard in the context of theatre... so was Apollo 10 a theatrical production? When Apollo 10 performed 8 hours of "dress rehearsal" much of that time was spent on the far-side of the moon which means there was no contact with ground control, on the far-side of the moon, where they did the crucial maneuvers. It makes little sense to perform such critical maneuvers on the far-side, in total communications black out. Somehow, the "dress rehearsal" was a success even though ground control could not verify most of what happened.

Maybe they needed 40 minutes of total communications black out* (for each orbit) to perform the clandestine mission? What was the actual mission of Apollo 10? As a matter of fact, the NASA transcripts we have for Apollo 10 on the far-side of the moon are actually from tapes made on-board the module, they are not recordings of radio signals sent from the module to earth. The Apollo 10 transcripts rely on our faith in NASA.

My main issue with the Apollo 10 "dress rehearsal" is that they are doing all the crucial maneuvers when they are out of contact with the ground... to me that is a red flag for safety reasons.

I'm not sure what you are suggesting here. US politics is not my strong suit. Are you perhaps implying that Nixon set up a fake program back in the 1950s, which JFK then inherited and must have known about when he made his famous pledge to go to the moon, and JFK never said a word about it? If I discovered a massive plot carried out by my main election rival then I think I might try to make some political capital out of it, don't you?

You have a fair understanding of the overall theme of Nixon's Apollo. Most people still underestimate Nixon. It's too tempting to just say "Watergate. Done." when in fact Nixon was receiving fast promotions in the Navy during WWII, and he was quickly promoted by wealthy California interests to a seat in the US Congress in 1946. And wham bam, thank you man... Vice president of the United States by 1953.

A lot of people forget about Nixon's Vice-presidency under Eisenhower. When Ike had his heart attack and spent 9 months in Key West Florida watching cowboy westerns, Nixon was running the White House. People forget about that.

When Ike made his speech at the end of his term, the famous speech about the "military-industrial-complex"
Ike was warning us about Nixon and Hughes.

Nixon's Apollo: In Too Deep

There were not one, but two, Watergate break-ins.

On 20th March, 1972 Frederick LaRue and John Mitchell of the Nixon's re-election committee decided to plant electronic devices in O'Brien's Democratic campaign offices in an apartment block called Watergate.

17 June, 1972. Five burglars from a domestic espionage network working for the Commitee to Re-Elect the President are arrested inside the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Washington, D.C., Watergate office complex.

Nixon's in too deep. He needed an exit plan for Apollo and for Mary Jo and for Castro and Cambodia. Watergate will do. Send those loyal men (from the Bay of Pigs) to get caught red handed (they fumbled it on purpose) while Nixon is away vacationing in the Bahamas.

Where is Hughes? He is on also the run.

The Intercontinental Managua, Managua, Nicaragua, Feb. 1972 to March 1972, and Aug. 1972 to Dec. 1972. SOURCE BARTLETT AND STEELE 1979 PAGE 498.


This is the time when both Hughes and Nixon realize that they needed to hit the eject button. Which they both did. Because they were both In Too Deep.

Hughes hit the eject button in November of 1970 with the help of the Mormon Mafia. 'Iron Bob' Maheu was out. Jean Peters was divorcing Howard. Everything was going tits up. The Nevada Gaming Commission wanted to see Hughes live, in person.

They were calling Howard's bluff...

Then by January of 1972, there is serious doubt that Howard Hughes even was alive. There was the David Irving controversy that tried to expose the Howard Hughes hoax, but that ruse was revealed as a hoax. The fascination with Hughes grew so much to the point where Howard Hughes felt compelled to conduct a remote interview from the Bahamas recorded on January 7, 1972, a Friday. It was broadcast on television to American audiences on Sunday night January 9, 1972, it was Richard Nixon's birthday.

Birthdays play a significant role in the understanding of the Nixon's-Apollo theory. I don't think these birthday "messages" are coincidental. (NASA also publicly announced the Apollo 11 crew on Richard Nixon's birthday January 9, 1969).

There is a relationship between Nixon & Hughes during the Apollo era. Many of these relationships invite us to ask questions about them. When I scratched the surface of these relationships they begin to elicit an alternative narrative of space history. If the subtext of Kennedy's Apollo is to beat the Commies to the moon, then, the best two men I can think of who could accomplish that mission would be Richard Nixon and Howard Hughes, arguably the two most powerful men in the world (probably) from November 1968-December 1972.

That's why Nixon appointed a Hughes scientist James Fletcher to the position of NASA administrator (1971-1977) to usher in the new era of low earth orbit space shuttle flights which would dominate NASA's manned space efforts for the next 42 years. Wernher von Braun had plans for Mars by the 1980's. But he got cancer and died. And every US president since Richard Nixon has had to side step the lunar mission conundrum. Yoday NASA has Keep Out Zones on the moon, because they are In Too Deep.
