Bill Cooper

Milton William "Bill" Cooper (6 May 1943 - 5 Nov 2001) was an American author best known for his book Behold a Pale Horse (1991). Cooper was considered an enemy of the State by Bill Clinton. Cooper was gunned down by Apache County sheriff's deputies at his home[1] in Eagar, Arizona, in November 2001. Cooper had the right to bear arms. The IRS sought charges on tax evasion. He was under U.S. surveillance since July 1998.

17 November 1989 Seminar

Mr. Cooper paused during his lecture and a lady in the audience asked, “Why haven’t YOU been assassinated?”

Cooper posed, “If they were to kill me right now, what would you think?”

“That it’s the truth,” someone chimed.

“I’ve got ’em right where I want ’em. If they touch me, everyone who’s ever heard me talk is gonna be absolutely enraged and is gonna know that everything I’ve said is true. As long as they don’t touch me there’s gonna be some of you who are always gonna be wondering. But eventually we’re gonna bring enough proof out, and if you’re here during the workshop you’re gonna see an awful lot of it that’s gonna prove to you that it’s true. It’s real. And it’s happening! Okay, I’ve tried to cover a lot of stuff, just briefly, because there’s no time in 45 minutes to get into anything very much.”
As the hour drew late another question, more clearly stated, was asked of Mr. Cooper by a woman, “Before you let us all out of here, there’s a bunch of us here wondering what can we all do to help bring this all out?”

A single word, “REVOLT” issued from several listeners simultaneously but Cooper responded, “Don’t revolt. What you need to do is what you should have been doing all along. You need to get involved with your government. The first thing you need to do is purchase a copy of the Constitution, which I know that most of you don’t have anywhere in your house, and if I were to go around this room and ask each person what the Constitution says, most of you couldn’t tell me what the Constitution says from your grocery bill. And that’s the truth ! And that IS your country ! So, if you don’t know what your Constitution is, you’re dead already ! So the first thing you do is you get a copy of your Constitution. The second thing you do is you learn it!

“The third thing you do is you start calling your senators and your representatives, and the President of the United States and you start leaning on them, and you tell them, ‘Unless you straighten up the government, and unless we start getting the truth, and I mean the whole truth, and no more of this baloney, this’s the last job you’re ever gonna have, period ! And I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that comes true.’ And then write them, frequently, saying the same thing. And then when they’re in your area, in their area offices, take a little delegation and go see them, and make them understand that they’re gonna be living in poverty because they’re not gonna have a job anymore come election day...”


26 July 2023 Hearing

Representative Tim Burchett, TN: “[Mr. Grusch do you have] personal knowledge of people who’ve been harmed or injured in efforts to cover up or conceal these extraterrestrial technology?” 

David Grusch replied in the affirmative.

When pressed by Mr. Burchett about whether people have been murdered as part of a government effort to hide U.F.O.s, Grusch said he could not talk about it in a public session.

Sierra Times Special Report, Tue Nov 6 18:51:23 2001, made a statement that William Cooper was reportedly killed in a SWAT raid. But the notion was retracted in an update, followed by the statement, "It appears at this time to be totally unrelated to the disputes he had with the federal government. There were no federal agents involved with the gunfight." In the Sierra Update, Nov 7 03:00:21 2001, “details are still sketchy on what caused the Cooper shootout on November 5, 2001.”

DPS spokesman Steve Volden released the name Robert Martinez, 40, as the critically injured deputy, to the press on late Tuesday. However, an Apache County Sheriff’s Office deputy Robert Marinez (named without the “t”) was shot twice in the head while making an unrelated arrest (the day after Cooper's shootout)—on Nov. 6, 2001. Marinez survived the shooting, and was medically retired in 2003, amidst concerns of state legislative plans to eliminate the annual pension increases provided to disabled police officers and firefighters.[2]

Since Waco, the U.S. Federal government changed its policies on raids. Their approach to Cooper was deliberated in caution by deploying several sheriff’s deputies in position outside Cooper's residence, before the engagement.
