William John (Billy Jack) Cox (born 1941) is an American public interest lawyer, author, and political activist.


The eighth and last child of a pioneer family that included American Revolutionary War patriots[1][2] and American Civil War rebels,[3][4] William John Cox was born on a dry-land cotton farm near Lubbock, Texas, to Samuel Hubert and Minnie Irene (Oswalt) Cox.[5][6] The family farm on which Cox grew up was initially without electricity or indoor plumbing, and the fields were plowed with work horses. The family endured the drought of 1950-1957, which caused massive dust storms in the Texas Panhandle.[7][8] Orphaned at age 10, Cox was raised by siblings until he attended New Mexico Military Institute, from which he graduated in 1958.[9]

After a four-year enlistment, Cox was honorably discharged as an United States Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class in 1962.[10]

Previously known as Billy Jack, Cox discovered in 1968 that he had never been named on his birth certificate. With the option of naming himself, he caused the name of William John Cox to be entered on his birth certificate.

Law enforcement[edit]

Graduating from San Diego Police Academy (1963)

In the early Sixties, Cox became a part of the "New Breed" movement to professionalize the American police service.[11] While working with a police dog[12] and as a detective, Cox served as president of the El Cajon, California Police Officers Association[13][14] and the San Diego County Chapter of the Peace Officers Research Association of California (PORAC),[15][16] which was instrumental in establishing the first Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission and drafting the national Law Enforcement Code of Ethics.[17][18][19]

Graduating with top honors from the San Diego Police Department[20][21] and the Los Angeles Police Department Academies, Cox received an associate degree in Police Administration from Rio Hondo College in 1969.

Promoted to Investigator and Sergeant, Cox authored the Los Angeles Police Department Policy Manual[22] and the introductory chapters of the Police Task Force report of President Nixon's National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals, which defined the role of the police in America.[23][24]

In 1973 and 1974, Cox was the special assistant of the Director of the Office of National Priority Programs in the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration of the United States Department of Justice, which implemented national criminal justice standards and goals.[25]

Law practice[edit]

While working full-time on the LAPD, Cox attended evening classes at the Southwestern Law School on the G.I. Bill and academic scholarships.[26] He served on the staff of the Law Review for two years and published a proposal for a legal remedy alternative to the Exclusionary Rule.[27] The article was cited to the California Conference on the Judiciary,[28] Supreme Court of the United States[29] and the United States Senate.[30] Cox was awarded a Juris Doctor degree cum laude in 1973 and was administered his attorney's oath by Justice Tom C. Clark in his U.S. Supreme Court chambers.[31]

Appointed a Deputy Los Angeles County District Attorney in 1974, Cox prosecuted a wide range of criminal cases in the Municipal and Superior courts (California) during the next three years.

In 1977, Cox opened a public interest law practice in Long Beach, California in the historic Skinny House (Long Beach).[32][33][34][35] He primarily represented indigent juveniles accused of serious crimes and received court appointments in capital punishment and major felony matters.[36]

The Holocaust Case[edit]

At entrance to the Skinny House law office (1978)

Among the cases Cox handled was a pro bono publico matter in which he represented Mel Mermelstein, a Jewish survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp. He investigated and sued a group of radical organizations, including the Liberty Lobby and Institute for Historical Review,[37][38] that engaged in Holocaust denial and which had offered a reward for proof of Nazi gas chambers.[39] The groups were headed by Willis Carto, the creator of the Populist Party and America's foremost anti-Semite and anti-black racist.[40][41] The New York Times called Carto "a reclusive behind-the-scenes wizard of the far-right fringe of American politics who used lobbying and publishing to denigrate Jews and other minorities and galvanize the movement to deny the Holocaust. . . ."[42]

The primary legal issue in the case was resolved in October 1981, when Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Thomas T. Johnson[43] took judicial notice of the fact that Jews were gassed to death at Auschwitz in the summer of 1944.[44][45][46][47][48] In the aftermath of The Holocaust Case, Carto's influence, nationally, was severely diminished, and he was subsequently removed from office through a coup d'etat by staff members of the Institute for Historical Review.[49]

The Holocaust Case was the subject of the TNT motion picture, Never Forget, in April 1991 starring Leonard Nimoy and Dabney Coleman.[50][51][52][53][54][55]

Cox's memoir about the case, The Holocaust Case: Defeat of Denial was published in July 2015 and includes relevant documents from the court files.[56][57][58]

Forensic practice[edit]

Between 1984 and 1988, Cox served as general counsel and operations officer of a private security consulting and investigation firm, whose clients included a number of Fortune 500 companies and nuclear weapons sites operated by the United States Department of Energy.

Cox recommenced a restricted practice of law in Long Beach, California and primarily provided investigative forensic services to other law firms for the next ten years. One of the leading cases he worked on was the successful litigation involving the heirs of The Three Stooges in support of attorney Bela G. Lugosi.[59][60]

Publication of the suppressed Dead Sea Scrolls[edit]

The Damascus Document Scroll

In 1991, Cox arranged for the publication of almost 1,800 photographs of the Dead Sea Scrolls that had been suppressed for more than 40 years.[61][62][63][64] Considered to be "the academic scandal of the twentieth century," the failure to publish the entire corpus of ancient documents had deprived several generations of biblical scholars the ability to study the scrolls.[65] Following the "Six-Day War in 1967, the Israeli government claimed ownership of the unpublished scrolls, but left them in the Rockefeller Museum in East Jerusalem and primarily under the control of Catholic priests from the École Biblique. As those who sought publication were fearful of litigation by the Israeli government, Cox agreed to represent, pro bono, the source of the photographs as an "undisclosed client" and the source of the publishing funds as an "undisclosed donor" to protect them from legal action. He personally signed a contract with the Biblical Archaeology Society to publish A Facsimile Edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls in November 1991.[66][67] The monopoly broken, the Huntington Library in California subsequently allowed all "qualified scholars" to study its set of photographs, and the Israel Antiquities Authority permitted the publication of a microfiche edition.[68]

As a witness for Professors Robert Eisenman and James M. Robinson, who had written an introduction and prepared an index for the book, Cox testified at a trial held in Jerusalem in January and February 1993, during which he refused to identify the source of the photographs.[69][70][71][72][73][74] To this day, Cox has never disclosed his "secret client."[75]

State Bar prosecutor[edit]

Between 1999 and 2007, Cox served as a supervising trial counsel for the State Bar of California, where he led a "Fast Track" team of attorneys and investigators that targeted the prosecution of attorneys accused of serious crimes and misconduct.[76][77][78] His team was so successful that the California legislature extended the authority of the State Bar to assume jurisdiction over unlicensed practices of law operated by criminal gangs.[79] Working with law enforcement officials, the team served court orders, seized files and bank accounts, and shut down the unlawful practices.[80][81]


Speaking at Cal State Fresno (2010)

Alleging that control of the United States government had been seized by corporations and special interest groups, Cox filed a class action lawsuit on July 9, 1979 on behalf of every American citizen directly in the U.S. Supreme Court.[82][83][84] As a remedy, Cox petitioned the Court to order the President and Congress to conduct a National Policy Referendum to restore political power to the voters.[85][86] The "motion for leave to file a petition for writ of mandamus" was denied.[87][88][89][90]

To publicize the National Policy Referendum and to introduce a law enforcement alternative to making war against the people of other nations, Cox conducted a write-in campaign for President in 1980.[91][92][93][94]

In 2004, Cox's election-year book, You're Not Stupid! Get the Truth: A Brief on the Bush Presidency, was published by the Progressive Press.[95]

Since retiring from the State Bar of California in 2007, Cox has dedicated himself to the promotion of a "peaceful political evolution."[96] The political movement focuses on: holding a National Policy Referendum every four years coincident with the presidential election; using a national paper ballot to allow voters to personally answer the 12 most critical policy questions; a national paid holiday for federal elections; and encouraging voters to write in the name of the candidate they most trust to effectuate their policy.[97]

During 2012, Cox published two eBooks on current political issues:

  • Target Iran: Drawing Red Lines in the Sand contains a history of Iran and its conflict with the United States and Israel over its uranium enrichment program, a discussion of the likelihood of war between the parties and a peaceful solution that offers a comprehensive nuclear weapons policy for all nations.[98]
  • Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church: Questions provides a brief review of the Mormon corporate empire and the power it holds over high priest and presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose family has been a part of the Mormon Royalty since the Church's creation.[99]

In February 2012, Cox drafted and commenced circulation of a proposed Voters' Rights Amendment (USVRA) to the U.S. Constitution. The USVRA incorporates the proposed corporate personhood amendment by Move to Amend;[100] however, it goes further to clearly establish that the right to cast an effective vote is an inherent right under the Constitution. In addition, the USVRA provides for national paid voting holidays, a national hand-countable paper ballot, and a process for the people to have a more direct role in the formulation of public policy. Moreover, it mandates voter registration and prohibits voter suppression, restricts gerrymandering and lengthy campaigns, and it encourages public financing of elections and discourages paid lobbying. Finally, it eliminates the Electoral College to allow for the popular election of presidents.[101][102][103]

The United States Voters' Rights Amendment

In 2015, Cox organized USVRA.US, a California nonprofit corporation to further public education about the Voters' Rights Amendment, and he created the Internet website, USVRA.us to support the initiative.[104] Written by Cox, the corporation published Transforming America: A Voters' Bill of Rights in December 2015.[105]

Working with the Political Science and Sociology Departments of the California State University at Long Beach, Cox established an organizational framework for Youth for the Voters' Rights Amendment, a youth-led, campus-based, nonpartisan political movement to compel the enactment of the USVRA. He also launched the Internet website, Y4VRA.org, to support the organization.[106]

To demonstrate how the voting rights provisions of the USVRA could be adopted by the people of other nations to better ensure the democratic principles of their representative governments, Cox published An Essential History of China: Why it Matters to Americans in December 2015.[107] Dedicated to Peace in the Pacific, the book summarizes 4,000 years of Chinese dynastic history, focuses on 100 years of the Communist Dynasty, and compares and contrasts the governments of the United States and China.


Los Angeles Harbor (2013)

In 1978, writing under the pseudonym of Thomas Donn, Cox published Hello: We Speak the Truth, an exploration of the dynamics of the mind, the origin of consciousness, the reality of existence, and personal transformation.[108]

Over the next three decades and building on the concepts first explored in Hello, Cox conceived the philosophy of Mindkind and coined the term. The philosophy brings together the scientific elements of time, Earth, and humanity in exploring the evolution of the mind, and it examines religion and culture in developing the thesis that humans are members of a Universal Mindkind.

Essentially, the philosophy proposes that humans live on Earth until such time as they overcome the diseases of deception, hatred, and violence that infects them, individually and collectively. Moreover, Mindkind on Earth will never be able to develop the knowledge, wisdom, and power to ever travel to any significant place in the universe or to explore adjacent dimensions until every child—irrespective of class or culture—has equal access to nutrition, health care, and education.[109]

In December 2015, Cox published The Book of Mindkind: A Philosophy for the New Millennium. Its dedication is "For the Children of Mindkind: To give wings to your imagination, allowing you to soar on the winds of time."[110]

In addition, to establish the political principles required to effectuate the philosophy of Mindkind, Cox wrote an entirely fact-based political philosophy narrated by fictional characters. Sam: A Political Philosophy was published in December 2015.[111]

Physics and Mathematics[edit]

Although he had little interest in algebra and almost failed geometry in high school, Cox later developed an interest in ancient mathematics and the physical universe in much the same manner as Victorian philosophers. As a matter of logic, he imagined that the entire perceived universe must necessarily move in relation to a greater universe. In addition, while the speed of light is the standard within our universe, the movement of our universe in relation to the greater universe may be governed by another metric.

Wood Model of Pi Sphere

Cox imagined the multiple universes can be contained and tracked within a geometry expressed by an expanding sphere whose surface is defined by six great circles and 14 vertices into 24 equal right-angle spherical triangles. The perimeter of each triangle is equal to pi times radius, and the ratio of the sides, hypotenuse, and height of the triangle is exactly 3:3:4:2.5.

To more accurately measure the geometry, Cox expanded base-10 mathematics to base 16, designated by an alternative to ASCII as: 1,2,3,U,4,5,6,N,7,8,9,S,C,X,W,10. The mathematics produce an elegant set of base numbers, such as .12UN, and allows pi to be essentially rounded off at 3.2U3W58NNN.[112]

In 2012, Cox published two eBooks on physics, geometry, and mathematics Time Travel To Ancient Math & Physics[113] and Mindkind: Math & Physics for the New Millennium[114] In December 2015, Cox published a combination of the two eBooks as a full-color trade paperback book titled Millennial Math & Physics.[115]


Cox has three children (Catherine, Lori, and Steven), six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren from his marriage to Patricia Ann Reed, a stepdaughter (Michelle) from his marriage to Brigitte Zickbauer, and a stepdaughter (Naomi) from his current marriage to artist Helen Werner Cox.[116]
