Wondering about Bill White and His ‘Conquering the Coming Collapse’ Book

I received one of email sponsored ads from GOPUSA. I don’t begrudge these ads for after all they help pay the bills. This particular had the email subject line: “THIS May Wipe Out 281 Million Americans”. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates the current U.S. population is 317 million by 2014. The email subject line thus indicates roughly 88% of Americans will be wiped out. I don’t know how that percentage hits you but it definitely got my attention. So somebody paid GOPUSA to send an ad to their subscribers claiming some information that can be found by clicking a link in an email will tell how 88% of the American population will be wiped out.


The only way a U.S. government survives such a loss is if global rivals also endure a huge percentage of a loss of life. Even if one military powerful rival to America is unfazed by such a catastrophe similar to an 88% American loss, then the great American experiment developed by America’s Founding Fathers in 1788 with the ratification of the most liberty-minded Constitution in World history comes to an end.


The ad link took me to one of those websites with a lengthy video (like about 30 minutes) trying to sell a Doomsday Prepper product. When I soon realized this was a lengthy video I decided to “X” out of the page. Then lo and behold the classic ad pop-up comes on asking if I desire to leave the page or remain. Most of the time I click “leave” but this time the subject line from the email was still in my memory about 281 million Americans being wiped out. So I clicked “remain”.


The video page disappears and a large transcript of the video appears which I proceeded to read. Honestly I did not find any details on how the number of 281 million was determined, BUT what I did read actually made sense I am fairly certain you also have read bits and pieces of the economic catastrophe predicted in this ad.


The ad his about eight to nine pages worth of verifiable information of economic lies being reported to the American people and the specifics of how the lie is manipulated into sounding like the truth by the government releasing cooked book data as the facts of economic recovery and growth. This alone makes this a good read!


The author of the ad and the program being offered for sale is a guy by the name of Bill White. I personally don’t know about this person. Now I say this because I am aware that a lot of end of the world products are sold in this same way and some of those guys have found themselves in legal trouble for making misleading claims. I have no real idea if Bill White is one of these guys.


Thanks to Google this is what I did find out. That Mr. White seems to have a reputation as a prepper expert and sharing economic disaster information among Conspiracy, Prepper and Survivalist bloggers and their readers. Mr. White writes on The Survival Place Blog and this is where I found some info at the bottom of one of his posts:



About the Author:

Bill White is the author of Conquering the Coming Collapse, and a former Army officer, manufacturing engineer and business manager. More recently, he left the business world to work as a cross-cultural missionary on the Mexico border. Bill has been a survivalist since the 1970s, when the nation was in the latter days of the Cold War. He had determined to head into the Colorado Rockies, should Washington ever decide to push the button. While those days have passed, the knowledge Bill gained during that time hasn’t. He now works to educate others on the risks that exist in our society and how to prepare to meet them. You can send Bill a message at bill.white [at] survivopedia.com.

The thing is I am not convinced this Bill White is an authentic person. There is a noted politician that is a Democrat that has an Economic collapse prediction and has published works on Amazon. This Bill White wrote “America’s Fiscal Constitution” published 4/1/14. This Bill White was the Mayor of Houston, TX. He ran as a Democrat for Texas – he lost. He was Deputy Secretary of Energy in the Bill Clinton Administration. This Bill White is not the Bill White credited with writing “Conquering the Coming Collapse”.


I found a book on Amazon entitled “Conquer the Crash: You Can Survive and Prosper in a Deflationary Depression” but it is by Robert R. Prechter Jr. Amazon’s author page says this about Prechter:


For Robert Prechter’s full biography, please visit http://www.robertprechter.com.


Robert R. Prechter, Jr., is a financial and social theorist and a market analyst. He is the President and CEO of Elliott Wave International and has written 14 books. Prechter is known for making a very bullish prediction in 1982 for a 1920s-style stock market boom which he detailed in his 1978 book, Elliott Wave Principle. Elliott Wave Principle with A.J. Frost (1978) forecasted the great bull market of the 1980s and 1990s. His 2002 New York Times best seller, Conquer the Crash, predicted the current debt crisis. It is the only book that advised readers to avoid all investments and hold safe cash. Prechter’s two-book set Socionomics (2003) shows how his social and financial theories weave together with his market forecasting approach: Waves of group mood determine the tenor of society’s actions, from more inward, dark, bearish expressions to more outward, sunnier and bullish endeavors. Prechter’s website, http://www.socionomics.net, explains his socionomics hypothesis and how it applies to various human arenas.


Prechter has dedicated much of his career to employing and enhancing R. N. Elliott’s financial pricing model called the Wave Principle. He began his career as a Technical Market Specialist with the Merrill Lynch Market Analysis Department. Prechter is President of Elliott Wave International, the world’s largest market forecasting firm. EWI serves institutional and private investors around the world.


Financial Theory

Prechter’s theory of financial causality proposes a separation between finance and economics. In the economic realm, goods and services have utility value and mostly are priced rationally via the Law of Supply and Demand. This leads to rough equilibrium. In the financial realm, investments are priced non-rationally, with changes fueled by uncertain future demand and according to the Law of Patterned Herding. This approach generates speculation and unceasing dynamism. Only once the analyst recognizes this divergence can he properly view financial pricing, Prechter asserts.



Prechter’s theory of socionomics says that trends and events across a broad spectrum of human interaction are impelled by a common immutable force: social mood. With its claim that mood impels action and events, socionomics is unique; most social theories posit the reverse.

The Wave Principle

As a market analyst, Prechter applies the Wave Principle, a financial pricing model identified and described by Ralph Nelson Elliott in the 1930s. According to this model, financial market prices develop in a series of five- and three-wave forms and produce a fractal. Prechter has written and/or edited a dozen books on the Wave Principle. Prechter began applying the Wave Principle to financial markets in 1972. Prechter’s firm, Elliott Wave International, analyzes every major financial market in the world, 24 hours a day, according to the Wave Principle.



Using the Wave Principle, Prechter won the U.S. Trading Championship in 1984 with a then-record 444% return in four months in a monitored, real-money options trading account. Prechter has won numerous speaking, timing and publishing awards, and in 1989, he was named “Guru of the Decade” by the Financial News Network (now CNBC). In 1999, Prechter received the Canadian Society of Technical Analysts’ first annual A.J. Frost Memorial Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Development of Technical Analysis. In 2003, Traders Library granted him its Hall of Fame award.



Prechter was born in 1949. He attended Yale University on a full scholarship. In 1979, Prechter founded Elliott Wave International and began publishing monthly market analysis under the masthead, The Elliott Wave Theorist. He was a nine-year member the Market Technicians Association’s board and was the MTA’s President in 1990-1991. Prechter employs a staff of analysts who apply the Wave Principle, real-time, to every major market in the world. He recently created the Socionomics Institute, which elucidates socionomics, and he underwrites the Socionomics Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting socionomics-related academic research. Elliott Wave Principle has been translated into a dozen languages, and Conquer the Crash was a New York Times bestseller. Prechter has made multiple speeches and media appearances around the globe. In 2008, the Georgia state legislature asked Prechter to testify before the legislature’s Joint Economic Committee regarding the developing real estate crisis. Bob is a member of the Triple Nine Society, the Shakespeare Oxford Society and the Shakespeare Fellowship.


So Prechter is a qualified economist but it is not the Bill White who wrote “Conquering the Coming Collapse”.


Then there is a Neo-Nazi named Bill White and here is the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) write up on him:


Date of Birth: 1977

Location: Roanoke, Va.

Ideology: Neo-Nazi


Bill White is a voluble and vicious Internet gossip who is sometimes right, sometimes wrong, but always ready to print just about anything that comes into his head. He once was a left-wing anarchist who promoted drugs, homosexuality, bombs and violent anti-racism. But around the turn of the millennium, he swung violently to the right, as reflected in his Overthrow.com website and its “Libertarian Socialist News” service, which was for several years the second most popular racist site on the Internet. After a stint with another neo-Nazi group, White set up his own American National Socialist Workers Party in 2006. In April 2010, White was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison for making threats against his perceived enemies through the Internet, the telephone and the mail. His American National Socialist Workers Party collapsed in the wake of his legal troubles.


In His Own Words

“Lynch the Jena 6. If these niggers are released or acquitted, we will find out where they live and make sure that white activists and white citizens in Louisiana know it, we’ll mail directions to their homes to every white man in Louisiana if we have to in order to find someone willing to deliver justice.”

— Overthrow.com website, 2007

“Sometimes you just have to murder blacks — and, frankly, the killing needs to start with the black leaders and NAACP activists… . I know where my local NAACP ‘leaders’ live — do you?”

— Overthrow.com, 2007

“We have no intention of removing Mr. Pitts’ personal information. Frankly, if some loony took the info and killed him, I wouldn’t shed a tear. That also goes for your whole newsroom.”

— Response to a 2007 request by a Miami Herald editor asking that White remove the home address of black columnist Leonard Pitts from his website “Kill this Nigger?”

— Headline for 2008 article about then-presidential candidate Barack Obama who was depicted in the middle of a rifle scope on the cover of White’s American National Socialist Workers Party’s magazine


Criminal Record

In August 2004, White was convicted of assaulting a woman when she was handing out fliers that identified him as a neo-Nazi landlord. During the court proceedings, White cursed at the woman from the witness stand and was held in contempt of court by the judge. In December 2009, a federal jury found White guilty of threatening several people through intimidating phone calls and internet postings. He was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison at an April 2010 hearing. In January 2011, White was found guilty of using his website to encourage violence against a jury foreman in the trial of another white supremacist, Matt Hale. In April 2011, a federal judge threw out the conviction related to the jury foreman, citing White’s First Amendment rights.



White says he got interested in politics early, becoming a “utopian anarchist” in junior high school, reading Freud and Marx at age 13, and putting out his first issue of the Utopian Anarchist Party (its symbol was a black fist on a red background) newsletter the next year. Among other things, he railed against juvenile psychiatry, writing later that he had been subjected to a series of psychiatric tests as a youth in which he routinely scored high for paranoia and aggressiveness. White has an extensive juvenile record, including, by his own account, some 22 arrests between ages 15 and 19 for “assault, weapons, explosives, property destruction, graffiti and … There is more on this crazy dude too lengthy for here you can READ THE REST.


Typically I am not a fan of the SPLC because place legitimate Conservatives and Biblical Christian Social Conservatives organizations in the same category as this racist nut. But this is not the author of “Conquering the Coming Collapse”.


So who is the Bill White author of “Conquering the Coming Collapse”? Frankly I haven’t a clue. These websites below give a glowing review of the book and point to the website that has the ad and video and asks you if you desire to leave the page or remain and read the Bill White transcript of the video:












Here is the video that a person named Kimberly Snyder posted on Youtube who is running her own business offer at kimberlysnyder.org. Youtube hasn’t given her a copyright infringement flag as of yet but this gal has her own Youtube channel that pushes her product. Here is the Bill White ad video on the Kimberly Snyder Youtube channel:

And here is the Bill White ad with a convincing sales pitch in which I am including one link to purchase the advertised program at the end if you so choose below my initials here at on my blog SlantRight 2.0.
