Why did Howard Hughes need to buy so many casinos in Las Vegas in 1966/1967? Because he needed the money laundering capacity of those casinos to buy Richard Nixon's 1968 Comeback, the Elvis 1968 comeback and the Apollo Hoax in 1969 and the Elvis Aloha "satellite" special in 1973. Some conspiracy theorists speculated that Howard Hughes was already dead by the time he recorded the famous hoax telephone interview from the Bahamas which was broadcast on network televison on Richard Nixon's birthday.

Howard Hughes early domination of space communications in 1964 is often overlooked. Hughes Aircraft at this time was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute - a tax-exempt organization - thanks to the Nixon loan!


The institute was initially located in Miami, Florida in 1953. Hughes's internist, Dr. Verne Mason, who treated Hughes after his 1946 plane crash, was chairman of the institute's medical advisory committee. Source Wiki page on HHMI en.wikipedia.org...


On May 3 1964 Howard Hughes sold his 6,584,937 shares (a 78% stake) in TWA and received the biggest check ever drafted ... $546,549,771 (roughly $4.2 billion in today's money). Source "Just About Everybody vs. Howard Hughes" David Tinnin 1973, page 356.

In 1964-1972 Hughes is dominating everything he sets his mind to.

In January of 1973, just one day after Richard Nixon celebrated his 60th birthday, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down the final opinion on TWA's epic 15 year case against ToolCo and Howard Hughes. TWA was suing Hughes for $170 million dollars. This was a damage suit orchestrated by TWA executives and outside lenders to force payment from Hughes for anti-trust violations alleged to Howard Hughes and ToolCo in their activities with jet financing for TWA in the late 1950's. Any guess as to how that turned out?

Howard wins. After his lawyers were beaten in courtroom after courtroom, appealing the case and then losing the appeals for the case, year after year, going on 15 years... Howard wins. He never appeared in court a single time because nobody could find him. Howard wins. The court ordered to him appear or default, so he defaulted. Howard still wins.

Howard wins for the simple fact that he was operating by casino rules where the house always wins! Viva Las Vegas!

Right this way Mr. Nixon.

Let me make this perfectly clear. Howard Hughes has the means motive and opportunity to beat the Russkies to the moon by Kennedy's deadline and this is going to be a major production by Hughes, unlimited expense accounts and everything. We can't risk a public failure with Apollo. It just can't happen. We went through a lot of trouble to eliminate the road blocks. We're going with Plan B, the deluxe options.

OK Mr. Nixon, sign right here.

Make it happen.

It's already happening, sir. Apollo 8 will be launched and ready to broadcast the Genesis excerpt according to the script.

It's Howard's birthday. (chuckles)

All things are for a reason, sir.

Hey you tell your boss to send another $50,000 won't you?

That message will be passed to the Man.

The Nixon Shindig.

Nixon exploited the 10th Anniversary of the moon landing (in 1979) and the prestige of the Apollo astronauts to rehabilitate his post-presidency persona. "Fifteen astronauts and their families" , "as well as Nixon's close friend, Bebe Rebozo."

The same Bebe Rebozo, the Miami banker constantly at Nixon's side. Swimming and bowling and sunbathing and dining on the CocoLobo II.

Let's not forget Don, brother of the President, getting into embarrassing financial relations with the likes of Robert Mahue and Richard Danner (Las Vegas executives in the Howard Hughes Nevada Operations) funneling cash donations into Nixon coffers, for Nixon's personal use, at his homestead in Key Biscayne, Florida, for improvements to the Camp David complex and his Western White House property at San Clemente.

Why was Bebe keeping that $100,000 in the safe? Because it was a modest sum. The real pay-off's were in the millions and billions of dollars, via the Bahama, via Howard Hughes casino money laundering, all of which makes the 1968-1972 time period much more interesting, especially since that 68-72 first term for Richard Nixon included the Apollo moon landings.

Nixon's Apollo



"The president... planned to use the American space triumph to override the public preoccupation with Vietnam." - William Safire, Nixon speech writer.

Nixon was expanding the war in S.E. Asia and public was inarguably opposed to that. As Nixon's speech writer William Safire told,


"The president... planned to use the American space triumph to override the public preoccupation with Vietnam." - William Safire, Nixon speech writer.


This is the critical link, the nexus, between Nixon's cynical presidency, the heroic Apollo charade and the horrors of Vietnam....

Nixon liked to "game plan" his decisions. The decision to cancel Apollo ( as it now stands clear over the last 6-7 pages of this thread) was a part of that game plan. The crafty move to invest America into low earth orbit for 42+ years with space shuttles is an example how far into the future Richard Nixon's long term poker game really was.



After he cancelled Apollo there was a strong trend in aerospace of laying off all those workers that were needed to build Saturn V rockets and Apollo command modules. More layoffs were impending on Nixon to do something. When Nixon announced the space shuttle in the first week of January 1972 (Happy Birthday for Nixon, born on the 9th), a statement which he made while on vacation at the western white house in San Clemente, California, and it was reported at the same time that the space shuttle would bring back 50,000 jobs to southern California.

The day before, January 4 1972, Nixon had just awarded a $200,000,000 ship building contract to a company in Sad Diego California. Interestingly, it is during this same week in history that the Howard Hughes Hoax autobiography & Clifford Irving scandal was set to explode.

"Very well played, Dick."

My fellow Americans I would point out on the map where it says "WRECK" that is where the alien wreckage is. We had to cover this up to save the planet from communism. We had to wait until other countries could catch up to our technology and build their own space systems to see this for themselves. That's why we have planted these anti-ballistic missile radar sites over here on the moon near Flag and Spook craters to defend against communist takeover of the moon. Tonight I am sending three battalions of space marines to our moon base at Baby Ray. America will not repeat the same mistake of Cuba and South East Asia. We are going in full force. And that means nuclear atomic defense initiatives and jobs for our country.

Now, a word from our sponsor, Hughes ToolCo.

It's not possible to understand the Apollo moon landings without first admitting that every Apollo moon landing took place under Richard Nixon's first term. The next question, naturally, is who put Richard Nixon into power... and the answer to that question, I think, is completely clear, Howard Hughes put Richard Nixon into power...

Nixon was the president for all 6 Apollo "moon landings". Nixon is historically and financially linked to Howard Hughes and together they produced Nixon's Apollo which was to beat the Communists. It was a "good conspiracy" because it was designed to defeat Communism. The Apollo Moon Landing Hoax was a "good conspiracy" and that is how people like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were recruited. Nixon and Hughes are both big Commie haters.

Two Years After

this thread was inaugurated there is now a fresh, scholarly work documenting Richard Nixon's space legacy and especially the critical space policy decisions made by his administration during it's first term. That book is John M Logsdon's 2015 historical biography "After Apollo - Richard Nixon and the American Space Program where Logsdon painstakingly lays down all the spellbinding details and finally concludes that Nixon's narrative in space leadership resulted in the cancellation of Apollo and Nixon's space legacy has left America in low earth orbit for 40 years.

Whereas Apollo Defenders are unwilling to come to the terms of Nixon's Apollo by any means this book by Logsdon is the missing link for Apollo Reviewers and I highly recommend reading it along with and beside, "Nixon at the Movies" by Mark Feeney.

Together, these books constitute two unbreakable supporting documents to the Nixon's Apollo conspiracy theory.

Why didn't the Russians steal our plans for the Saturn V rockets and send Apollo-copied modules to the moon?


Because the Soviet military saw the entire venture as a waste of military resources from the get-go, hence the reason they shut down their own moon landng program after the 4th N1 failure. Honestly, it's actually not that damned complicated.

Very interesting and well-put together thread, OP. A couple years after your original thread do you think it is quite possible that Nixon directed a moon landing hoax which was bankrolled by his silent partner Howard Hughes?

Apart from the two works you have mentioned above, have you come across any other evidence of this since you penned this thread?

No one in their right mind would trust Nixon in any situation that wasn't black and white, and certainly Howard Hughes had the financial ability and the film industry knowledge to aid such a hoax.

I think that a compelling argument has been made that Nixon & Hughes had motives, means and opportunities to do that.


Apart from the two works you have mentioned above, have you come across any other evidence of this since you penned this thread?


Not evidence, per se, but concurrent research,, such as the Mae Brussell Worldwatchers Archive located at
www.worldwatchers.info...

Mae was a high class conspiracy researcher who studied the Nixon/Hughes relationship. Although Mae (to my knowledge) never connect Nixon with the Apollo moon landings, she did dedicate one program to Bill Kaysing, September 19, 1977. Tape #287? She was challenging the news media by even talking about the subject of Apollo.


en.wikipedia.org...

When most people think of Nixon they automatically think Watergate. That is wrong. That is MK-Ultra programming. Nixon is much more than Watergate. He's a Manchurian Candidate for President.

Howard Hughes is also much more than the insane reclusive skeleton drug addict - he's the Godfather of Hollywood. He's the Chairman of the Board for the Military Industrial Complex.

If we are to accept the Howard Hughes teleconference was real (interview was held on Jan 7, it was broadcasted on January 9, 1972, unbelievably it was Richard Nixon's birthday) we can also accept that the Moon landings were real, A. Because they saw it on TV and B. Because experts have confirmed the authenticity of it and C. Asking questions about it are deemed unpatriotic, revisionist history, ignorance, etc.

Mae Brussell has noted that the Chappaquiddick incident and the Apollo moon landings took place on the same weekend. She wasn't wrong to discuss that connection in 1977 and I think she was on the right track with the Kaysing interview ad she read from Kaysing's book. For whatever reason, she never followed up on the Nixon - Hughes - Apollo connections.

Hello I did find this today, "Russian Official Proposes International Investigation Into U.S. Moon Landings". So many people do not believe in the Apollo moon landings anymore.

I think you missed a really important part in that article.


"We are not contending that they did not fly [to the moon], and simply made a film about it. But all of these scientific — or perhaps cultural — artifacts are part of the legacy of humanity, and their disappearance without a trace is our common loss. An investigation will reveal what happened," Markin wrote.

If you were to pose this as a "media analysis" focused article, you may have a good shot at making this theory look really legitimate. By shifting the tone a little towards "media" you stand a very good chance of shaking off the "conspiracy theory" aura. I STRONGLY recommend that you get access to a local University Library and start citing mostly sources from academic, peer reviewed journals, focused on "media". Only use history or poly-sci journals to support the dates of events, not your ideas. Believe it or not, you could support nearly everything you have written here in some way with real academic sources, especially those with a media focus. The problem i see for you, is getting access to those peer reviewed journals and having the time to read through enough articles that will support small bit-sized portions of your article. I would say at least 100 cited sources should be your goal. Quickly looking, I am seeing a number of books written by professors that mention links between Hughes and Nixon, published in the mid-1990's.

The disciplines that I have seen writing these kinds of articles and not being dismissed as mere "conspiracy theory" are anthropology of mass media, media geography, media studies and film studies. If you can really buckle down and adopt some of the techniques used by professional academics, you can make this much more than a "conspiracy theory" post on ATS.

a reply to: boohoo

I appreciate your remarks very much, you are too kind. I'm just finishing up reading Jonathan Schell "The Time of Illusion" September 1976, and there is some material in there that I will be citing for Nixon's Apollo. I am acquiring all my source material in physical form, to the best of my ability. Still have stacks and stacks of stuff to get into... Haldeman's diaries is gonna be spectacular... I've read the first 100 pages and it's already paid off for Nixon's Apollo.

Thank you for the guidance and enthusiasm for this idea called Nixon's Apollo. This is an experiment, an "overlay meta-narrative for the official narrative" that already exists - it just needed to be spelled out. Step by step, book by book, source by source.

My research is about 50% unfinished I have still dozens of books ahead of me before I can start thinking about creating a standardized version of Nixon's Apollo 1.0. ... we are still in beta version!
Each book I read has brought out new nuances in the storyline, in the script, the characters and the dialogue.

You seem to be fairly interested in this subject boohoo, so why don't you do me this favor and give me some real hardball questions just for fun!

ORIGINS of NIXON'S APOLLO



Richard Nixon's statements on October 25th 1960, exactly two weeks before Election Day, November 8th. Think about it for a moment, he's the sitting VP and he's running for President. He's making some statements in Cincinnati. You won't find these kind of statements in the NASA abridged history over at nasa.gov.

Dick's playing some high stakes poker and he's proven to be a real good player on the Hughes team. He just stuck the blame for the missile gap on Harry Truman nearly 8 years ago. But this is a big hand (the election) and Dick's got some hot cards up his sleeve that he wants desperately to play against JFK. Missile gap cards.

And then JFK steals the election (That's another thread!). Nixon is greatly pissed off about it and vowed revenge. But the real pisser for Dick is when Jack goes and steals the moon landing idea. Oh, how that must have hurt him even more deeply.
Nixon is going to get revenge on Jack, not once but twice... first in Dallas and then by taking credit for the moon landings!

Nixon never comes out publicly to take credit for the moon landings but he is always there on TV taking credit for the moon landings, pinning medals on astronauts, talking to Neil & Buzz on the "Moon", flying out to see the Apollo 11 crew during splashdown, flying out to Hawaii when the heros of Apollo 13 returned to Earth safely, celebrating the anniversaries, by having astronauts at his home for taco parties, astronaut sleepovers at the White House, appointing certain astronauts to various important conspiracy positions, etc.

Why? Because "# Jack Kennedy" that's why.

Who is gonna control the payoffs in a missile race to the "moon"? Howard Hughes, via Las Vegas and the Bahamas.


Who is gonna beat the Russkies to the "moon"? Richard Nixon, via satellite television, virtually invented by Howard Hughes.

Fast forward to 1968 and Richard Nixon is again running for the presidency of the United States.

"It obviously was no coincidence" said the newspaper man. Nixon was in Texas to take some of the shine away from LBJ's grab for Apollo 7 publicity.



Nixon's views space as an arena that requires the United States to have military superiority. Nixon agreed with James Webb in saying that "We are No. 2 in space with no hope of catching up in the immediate future." It's poker. They are bluffing.

He said that on November 2nd, just three days before the election, echoing James Webb. Just about 7 weeks before Apollo 8 launched. On December 24th, 1968 Frank Borman and his crew were cruising around the "moon" reading bible verses from Genesis on Howard's' birthday, utilizing Howard's technology.

It was Nixon who, in 1959, complained about being number two in space and missiles blaming it on Truman!. Now it's 1968 and he's doing it again by blaming LBJ! He's bluffing. Nixon knows the Apollo script because he co-wrote it.

As the newspaper man said, "It obviously was no coincidence". It makes you wonder about that weekend when Mary Jo and Teddy got wet. A weekend which belonged to Richard Nixon's destiny, the American, the John Wayne-esque conqueror of the free world and the "moon". Was that Nixon stabbing at the Kennedy's one more time in Chappaquiddick? Probably.

When you think about Richard Nixon don't just automatically think about Watergate... that is the ultimate distraction and hundreds of books have been written about it to waste your time.

It's was never JFK's Apollo. It was always Nixon's Apollo. A gift from Howard Hughes.
