THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE IN DEVELOPMENT ‘MEIERGATE’ IS ABOUT THE LIFE STORY OF JOHN MEIER
NARRATED BY 8-TIME AUDIE AWARD WINNER ACTOR DENNIS BOUTSIKARIS (THE BOURNE LEGACY / BETTER CALL SAUL)
Age of Secrets: The Conspiracy that Toppled Richard Nixon and the Hidden Death of Howard Hughes exposes the illicit activities of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the real reason for Watergate, the biggest political scandal in United States history, and the hidden death of the world's richest person Howard Hughes, with the CIA’s worldwide pursuit of John Meier trying to expose it all and change history.
Includes revealing information on the Assassination of United States Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) and Critical Comments by New York Times bestselling author Jim Hougan.
Age of Secrets is a Biography of former U.S. Senate candidate John Meier who had Top Secret security clearance with the U.S. Government and has been referred to in the media as the man who brought down President of the United States Richard Nixon in Watergate, the greatest political scandal in U.S. history. Meier was the right-hand man to Howard Hughes, the world’s richest individual, and Meier was the first person to expose the CIA’s connection to the Hughes Organization and the only person to call for a congressional hearing into the death of Howard Hughes.
Howard Hughes supplied the CIA with a cover organization to hide anything they possess or do. When Meier opted out of the organization, he became an impediment to its continued existence, with the CIA trying to stop him at all costs, including framing him for a number of offences including murder, and attempting to assassinate him.
Meier was responsible for the CIA’s creation of the legal term Glomar Response, when an agency refuses to confirm or deny the existence of records or information, he was an intelligence agent with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), and he had worked at Robert A. Maheu and Associates, the private investigative agency that the television series and film franchise “Mission: Impossible” was based on. He was involved with preventing the assassination of President of the Dominican Republic Joaquin Balaguer, he had stopped the CIA from discrediting U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy, and he had blocked the potential destruction of the King of Tonga.
John Meier was a Diplomat who operated at the highest levels of Government including as Vice Chairman of the Humphrey-Muskie National Finance Committee, during Vice President of the United States Hubert Humphrey’s Presidential Campaign, serving on President Richard Nixon’s Task Force on Resources and Environment and a Special Consultant to Nixon’s Environmental Quality Advisory Committee, and an advisor to several U.S. Senators including Senators Hubert Humphrey, Robert F. Kennedy, and Mike Gravel, who credited Meier with preventing the spread of nuclear power within the United States.
Meier has appeared in over a thousand newspaper and magazine articles as well as books, radio and television interviews, and he is mentioned in hundreds of Government and historical records forever preserved at the U.S. National Archives because of their importance to the United States. President Richard Nixon talks about Meier on several reels of the Nixon White House Tapes.
In the Afterword of the book, Meier sums up his politically motivated battle by saying “My story is one of a man devastated by a corrupt system. Our governments are increasingly disrespectful of basic human rights such that we can no longer legitimately call our nations democracies. I hope that this story will contribute to changing this course”.
