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.
