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. (End of Bill White article entitled “Bug-Out Backup: How to Find Shelter Underg[r]ound”. Posted at The Survival Place Blog on 5/23/14)

 

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.

 

Socionomics


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.

 

Awards


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.

 

Miscellaneous


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.

 

Background


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:

Global Collapse: Should we Listen to Survivalists?


Surviving Disaster

John R. Houk

© January 16, 2013

 

Have you seen any web ads that have a hook that runs something like “banned by FEMA” or “banned by Google” or “Your govt. does not want you to know this”?

 

Yes, I admit to biting on the hook. These ads appeal to those who have doubts about the future of the U.S. economy. These doubts bring visions of economic depression, societal chaos, government oppression exercised because of a collapsing economy or National Security breakdowns or just a cessation of government authority in general.

 

I find it unfortunate that the Free Market I believe in so much allows fear-entrepreneurs to make money by the possible and/or probable threat to individuals’ and families’ livelihood. This fish bit the hook because I lean toward plausible possibility. I am still in denial a coming chaos will change America into an everyman for himself wild, wild West is inevitable. Possible yes, probable maybe, but inevitable – no.

 

Survivalists are somewhere between probable and inevitable. Nonetheless, if the chaos proceeds as the Survivalists believe, I want to be a friend with at least one of them.

 

And so I continue to check out the ads every once in awhile. What I find annoying is the commonality in all these ads. That commonality is the link taking you to the video page will not let you leave with one click of the “X”. On my browser it always asks if you want to leave or remain. If you click leave you are sent to another page that lays out the details for a purchase of a book, CD, DVD or so on. I have not succumbed to the fisherman yet by allowing the ad to reel me in. BUT because I am still in the possibility crowd I keep clicking them because of the curiosity.

 

The thing is I discover little nuggets of fascination when I listen to these videos. So instead of purchasing (in this case) “The Long-Term Family Survival Course,” I thought I would check out some Survivalist websites for a little more info.

 

I discovered that Survivalism is a pretty big subculture. One site I found has an enormous amount of text files to download to study the ideology and the how-to of Survivalism. If this tweaked your curiosity here is the link: http://www.textfiles.com/survival/. Then I found a Website that purports to have a list of the founding fathers of the Survivalist Movement.

 

This is what I am going to do from here. I am going to cross post these posts at SlantRight 2.0:

 

§  The Founding Fathers Of Survivalism

 

§  The Survival Spot Challenge

 

§  IMPORTANT MESSAGE from FamilySurvivalCourse.com

 

The last is a part of the ad I watched. I have in the past placed a teaser of one of these videos. Unbelievably a complaint was filed with Youtube and I had to remove the video excerpt from the SlantRight Youtube Channel. The part I am cross posting is the page I was taken to after trying to leave the video ad portion.

 

If you are curious and want to read up on this kind of stuff you can Google Survivalism, read a few of the downloadable links from http://www.textfiles.com/survival/, maybe browse the Survival Spot blog or just buy the Family Survival Course.

 The Founding Fathers Of Survivalism (Updated)

 

William Atkin – Survival Spot Owner

02 April 2010

Survival Spot

 

The modern survivalist movement has been influenced by a number of people. But a select group of influential authors and speakers have virtually shaped or perhaps created the modern survivalist movement. This article is dedicated those special people, those founding fathers of survivalism.

 

*Note, this list is in no particular order

 

  1. Mel Tappan
  2. Howard Ruff
  3. Don Stephens
  4. Joel Skousen
  5. Cresson Kearny
  6. Ragnar Benson
  7. Bruce D. Clayton
  8. Jeff Cooper (colonel)
  9. Kurt Saxon
  10. James Wesley Rawles

 

1. Mel Tappan

 

Mel Tappan began his career collaborating with other members of the survivalist movement. Co-authoring a book and writing a small column for “Guns & Ammo” magazine in the 70s. He is best known for his book Survival Guns which is still in print today, 32 years later. However, despite his popularity we couldn’t manage to find a single image, video or audio clip of Mel. Mel encouraged his readers to relocate away from metropolitan areas as a part of their survival strategy. Mel was once quoted by the Associated Press as saying:

 

“The concept most fundamental to long term disaster preparedness, in retreating, is having a safe place to go to avoid the concentrated violence destined to erupt in the cities. When you have a growing apprehensive awareness that the time grows short for you to relocate away from areas of greatest danger, then choose [where you will live] carefully.”

 

Unfortunately Mel passed away in 1988 but his legacy will continue to live on with the admiration and weight his name currently carries. His wife, Nancy Mack was one of his biggest supporters and continued his work for a number of years.

2. Howard Ruff

 

Howard Ruff is another one of the original Survivalists who entered the scene in the 1970s. Drawing on his experience in financial advising, he has written several books focusing on financial preparedness topics. He has been known to encourage investing in precious metals and food storage, rather than traditional stocks and bonds. Although he may not have a household name, Ruff has been fighting for sound economics for a lifetime. He recently appeared on MSNBC to speak about the fragility and possible threats to the current US economy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Through his books, speaking and other engagements, Howard has become one of the foremost pioneers of sound economic principles as related to self sufficiency.

3. Don Stephens

 

Don Stephens entered the Survivalist scene in the 1960s with concerns about a possible financial collapse (which seemed to be the trend at the time). H A strong proponent of relocation, Don used the knowledge gained studying architecture at University of Idaho Don has written many great books on eco friendly, self sustaining home designs and living as well as contributing to many others works (including working with Mel Tappan). An influcencer, a thought leader and an innovator are just a few ways to describe Don Stephens.

4. Joel Skousen

 

Joel Skousen is a political commentator, former Marine and survivalist author. His non-fiction books mainly focus around homes, land and security. Joel has been a huge preparedness advocate since his early adulthood and he’s still fighting the good fight today, appearing on many major news stations.Joel tows the line between generations, helping spread wisdom from past generations to the newer generations.

5. Cresson Kearny

 

Cresson was a popular survivalist author, writing most notably “Nuclear War Survival Skills”. Cresson server in military and government positions for his entire life, which gave him incredible expertise in military and technical aspects of survival. His works have been a staple of survivalist reading and have hugely impacted the education level of survivalists (especially with nuclear information). Sadly Cresson passed away in 2003. His daughter commented,

 

Throughout his life he believed in being prepared for trouble.”

6. Ragnar Benson

 

Ragnar Benson is actually the pen name of an author who has written some of the most dangerous books available. Ragnar was considered dangerous because of his exposing works on munitions, explosives, “mantrapping”, creating new identities and more. Despite the controversies associated with his work, his writings had a powerful impact in the survivalism movement. Much of his work is focused around living an independent life and escaping the trapping of modern government/society. If you don’t own at least one Ragnar book your survival library is incomplete!

 

To this day at age 72, Ragnar is still active in Survivalism, recently writing the book Long-Term Survival in the Coming Dark Age: Preparing to Live After Society Crumbles.

7. Bruce D. Clayton

 

Bruce D. Clayton, Ph.D., a black belt in the sixth degree, is a scientist, writer, and teacher who gained popularity with his book “Life After Doomsday” in the 1980s. He is the author of over a dozen books on survival and self-defense, including the revolutionary Shotokan’s Secret from Black Belt Books. Shotokan’s Secret has been called a,

 

manifesto for a modern revolution in the way martial arts are learned and taught.”

8. Jeff Cooper (colonel)

 

Colonel Cooper was an actual Colonel who pioneered many shooting techniques, especially for small arms. In his life Cooper was a gun advocate, helping teach others how to use guns and even creating the American Pistol Institute located in Arizona. Additionally, Cooper invented The Combat Color Code (mentioned here), a code based upon situational awareness.

 

The will to survive is not as important as the will to prevail… the answer to criminal aggression is retaliation. – Jeff Cooper

9. Kurt Saxon

 

Kurt Saxon is one of the first “survivalists”, so much so he claims to have invented the term “survivalist”. Gaining fame in the 1970s with his popular book “The Poor Man’s James Bond”, Kurt has had an impact on the modern survivalist movement in ways most of us don’t realize. Having grown up during the Great Depression, Kurt was somewhat of an expert on surviving on a budget. Many of his publications offer various tips and do-it-yourself guides on topics ranging from home medicines to homemade self-defense weapons. If you are interested in survival and preparedness, chances are you have most likely read something reflecting the views and knowledge of Kurt Saxon. Kurt was in many ways a philosopher, speaking loudly his ideals of societal structure and its inevitable failure. To really get a feel for who Kurt Saxon is, read A Philosophy For Survivalists.

 

Kurt is still active and teaching survivalism in Alpena, Arkansas.

**Disclaimer, We know that Rawles isn’t a “founding father” of survivalism and is instead a significant figure in the movement. However his impact cannot be ignored and deserves an honorable mention from us.

 

10. James Wesley Rawles

 

James Wesley Rawles is perhaps the most famous Survivalist of our time. He is the author and editor of www.survivablog.com, which has become a staple in the online survivalist community. His blog offers a plethora of information on survival topics from food storage and gardening to do-it-yourself survival shelters. He has set himself apart in the industry by offering a comprehensive guide on the best places to relocate to avoid disaster, and offering private retreat consulting by phone from his North Idaho home. His book “Patriots: A Novel of Survival in the Coming Collapse” was one of my personal favorites and interestingly enough, some of the scenarios Rawles sets forward in his book are beginning to come to pass today. Many of us who currently know Rawles would say that he has become, in many ways, the modern archetype for survivalists. He has been one of the major players in the modern survivalist movement for the last several years, drawing fans and readers from varying backgrounds and demographics.

The Survival Spot Challenge

 

William Atkin – Survival Spot Owner

21 May 2010

Survival Spot

 

Some might know who I am, some might not. My name is Will and I’m a prepper. I run this blog, the Survival Spot.  But much more important than who I am, is why I do what I do. I run this free blog for one reason and one reason alone.

 

To help others become more mentally, physically and emotionally prepared to take on any challenge this life may present.

 

The Awakening

 

Like many of you I had an “awakening” of sorts about preparedness. My reasons are as simple as anyone’s; I want to ensure a continued existence for myself and my family. More than that, I want to beyond “surviving”, I want to thrive in hard times. I don’t want my family to have to wait in the bread line. Isn’t that exactly what most us are preparing for? We’re not preparing for a single isolated incident as much as we’re preparing for the inevitable collapse of modern society. And with so many forces working against our modern system, it’s only a matter of time before our worst fear becomes a reality. We aren’t nuts or kooks, we are simply trying to be wise and realize the plain and simple truth that by being ready we aren’t at the complete mercy of someone or something else.

 

The Reason

 

After several years of gathering supplies, learning new skills and changing my entire life to fit into the self reliant/survivalist mindset, I realized that there are overwhelming forces against us. I realized that no amount of preparation done by myself could overcome the tremendous odds we face in the future. It would certainly give me an advantage, but would I be able to be (sic) withstand all odds with my small family?  So finally, after much thought and consideration, I realized a plain and simple truth; strength in numbers. I realized that nobody can do it by themselves. As humans we have always relied on each for strength and support. So much so that before modern technology, if we didn’t have a tribe or a group to lean on we most likely died. Us as social creatures need to belong to a group for both emotional needs and basic survival needs. The only reason we aren’t as unified now as we once were is because of the abundance of convenience and technology. This technology allows someone to be and isolationist and survive. But in the end, being an isolationist will get you killed.

 

So that’s why I started this blog. I did it to help others learn to prepare. To help others learn to be self reliant. Ultimately, the more people who are prepared and self reliant, the less people there will be roaming the streets looking for food. The less people there will be willing to kill over some water or a can of food. In simpler terms, the more people who are prepared, the less we need to be.

 

In the beginning of a change, the Patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a Patriot.” – Mark twain

 

What this quote means to me is that the most difficult challenge we preppers face is not being prepared. It’s helping others learn about why they should be prepared and how to do it. And to those of you who think “well, there’s nothing I can do to change their minds”, I’ve been there and I’ve thought that. But there have been dozens people I’ve met in the last 5 years that I have turned onto preparedness in one way or another. At first most of them rejected of the idea and made fun of me for my extremism. But the seed that I planted in their heads that this world isn’t entirely safe, has grown and flourished into a preparedness mindset. People who’s minds I thought would never be changed have slowly started prepping, gathering supplies, planting gardens and being more aware.

 

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing” – Edmund Burke

 

Now What?

 

OK, so you know me and you know my reasons. Why does it matter? It matters for a reason that runs so deep none of us can hide from it or ignore it. And that simple reason is that there is strength in numbers. The great powers of this world are not rebellious against each other. The powers of this world utilize networking, organization and communication to make their organizations powerful and secure. Love them or hate them, they are powerful and secure. If we seek to survive the trials and tribulations of our future, we must unite together. At the very least we must spread truth, wisdom and knowledge to all that we know.

 

The Survival Spot Challenge

 

Here is my challenge to you readers.  I challenge you to convince at least one person that they should become prepared. Even if they only start with a simple kit or a little bit of extra food, get them thinking about the fragility of our lives.

 

Did you have an awakening moment? If so leave a comment and tell us what your awakening moment was. I want to hear what you think, so leave a comment and let your voice be heard.

About Survival Spot

 

Survival Spot Blog is dedicated entirely to the practice and philosophy of survival. We teach you not only the “hows” but also the “whys” of survival and emergency preparedness. Which is why we bring you regular updates on survival related news including natural and man-made disasters, economic troubles or anything that might require us to beef up our efforts as survivalists and make sure we’re never caught off guard. In addition to the latest survival news, you’ll also find a ton of resources on our site. We post lots of video how to’s, DIY (do it yourself) articles on everything from wilderness survival to homesteading. Be sure to check out our downloads section for a great collection of hand selected e-books, guides and tools all FREE courtesy of our amazing sponsors and supporters.

 

We believe in paying it forward. Every person we can help bring closer to the truth and become more prepared is one less person that will be in need when TSHTF.
