"Enter the Dragon" was set to release in 1973 - the same year Bruce was found dead in China. Each time I've seen this film on TV - I've NEVER seen this opening clip. I also just found out that he was found dead THREE WEEKS BEFORE IT PREMIERED.
There was a Bruce Lee film day on TV a few months ago. I caught a short scene under the compound where an American girl with blond hair was being drugged and asking for help. I said to myself "that looks like sex trafficking". I went to Netflix to watch the film and couldn't find it online anywhere. I had to order the disk from Netflix. I did and got busy and started to send it back. I'd made payment arrangements with my cable company to hold off until the 1st of the month. Suddenly my service is off and they're fighting me so I have no TV. I remembered I had the disk in the car. I go and get it out and start playing it and at this scene I'm going "I've never seen this scene". I call my daughter in and SHE'S never seen this scene on TV either.
So catch this clip from "Enter the Dragon" where it shows Bruce isn't just going to investigate this island - but is trying to gather evidence to stop sex trafficking again before that term was even coined. I'm trying to help people to understand what the world was like when I was involved in the sex industry and witnessing the issue of sex trafficking around me. It has many forms but one thing was universal back in the 1970's and early 80's when I was first introduced into that world - this was that no one believed these things were even "real". I want you to hear this CIA character explaining that the police can't move in and do anything because there's "no guns or drugs" involved which was true prior to the Trafficking Act of 2000. You know why?
The Mann Act written in 1910 was written about Chinese women being brought into the USA and trafficked, and about minors who were moved across state lines for prostitution. There was NOTHING on the books to protect American women from sex trafficking - which again is why I was witnessing our adult women being sold to Saudi Arabian's for oil deals, Columbian's for drug deals, Mexican cartel for drug deals also. I was called as a madam and offered $25,000 for a "white girl with no family". I tried calling the police who laughed. I went to the airport where I knew one woman had been taken and the airport security told me it was a "diplomat's plane" and therefore "nothing can be done" to stop a plane I saw taking off with American women on it. THIS is what Bruce was trying to tell us about. I will bet you money if he was alive when this movie had aired - he would have been talking about this subject in 1973.
Imagine if today someone were to tell you they were being "sold by green aliens from mars into sexual service". THAT'S the reaction we got from people when we'd try to find help for us or another person. They would either accuse of of "hallucinating" or "being drunk" or whatever other rationale they could come up with.
When Linda Lovelace first tried to tell the world she had been forced to film "Deep Throat" with her pimp/husband pointing a gun to her head from off-camera the audiences would LITERALLY "boo" at her, call her a liar, and then say she was "just jealous" he'd gone on to manage Marilyn Chambers. To prove she was telling the truth - she would tell audiences "go look at the bruises on my legs in the bathtub and pool scenes". The public reacted to this proof by saying "oh that was from where she was shooting up drugs".
I want you to watch this hardly seen clip from Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon". I have watched this film 1000 times on TV over the years, and NEVER have I seen this opening scene where a man who is probably CIA is asking him to "go undercover" to the island to "gather evidence on Han" who is "drugging attractive women until they get hooked and then selling them to an elite clientele". The man is even lamenting that because Han isn't using guns they don't have the "probable cause" to go in legally and shut him down! Which as you know was the case - we didn't have the laws other than "drugs" or "guns" to go in and do anything and still don't in most cases.
Which is why when I was being "trained" in "how to run an operation" by the "family" who came after me, they told me "no guns and no drugs and the cops can't lift a finger to stop you". Which technically was true. Our main operation, the warehouse I had, was where we had a theater license. I showed an adult film in a private room with a bed for $250 for a 1/2 hour "show" and the sex was FREE. Therefore, it was not technically prostitution.
The prosecutor literally was scratching his head saying "she's not breaking any laws". Because I lived in one zone, and operated different operations in different zones, and had my phones forwarded from a totally other zone even than where the warehouse was - this one cop had to literally form a task force to be able to get the paperwork together to even arrest me! Too bad he didn't get the memo I had shut down the prostitution operation at the warehouse and had turned it into a "safe house", the first in the country for adults, by the time they got their "probable cause" to come in and arrest someone in the place. Even then she told them I had saved her, and the cast on her arm was from her pimp, not me. Leaving them to then arrest MY MOTHER in order to get me to the table to plea bargain!

In all the years I've seen this Lee film on TV, I've never seen the clip at the beginning left intact that he was going in on behalf of the CIA to try and shut down what is now called a "sex trafficking operation". You'll see that in 1973 we didn't use those terms if you look at this film. That term wasn't even coined until the Trafficking Act of 2000. This will show you how far in advance of his time Lee was.
In 1973, I was 13 years old. I was 19 when I went in to get a cocktail waitress job at the club these pimps had bought to launder their drug and prostitution money where I got lured into "the game" originally myself. Honestly, if more talk had been going on as I was growing up on this subject - I might have been better prepared for what came at me because the only images I'd ever seen of pimps before was Huggy Bear on "Starsky & Hutch" and some about Iceberg Slim. For prostitutes I'd only seen "The Happy Hooker" or junkies on street corners in mini-skirts.
This clip being deleted from most of the showings of his films tells me there might have been more to his death than meets the eye. Especially when you combine his death, with his work trying to raise awareness, along with Jason's death which was even stranger. No one has a clue who could have substituted in real bullets in that gun because he had no personal enemies. Prop men have also shown us how you can't "accidentally" load blanks into a prop gun either.
I remember some Chinese speaking how Bruce had died because of his "not accepting the old ways" which I had taken to mean his work revolutionizing martial arts. He took a lot of heat for teaching American's. He had also started going back to China in disgust over the way America was treating him. It was bad enough he was supposed to have David Carradine's part in "Kung Fu", and he was made to look like an underling in "Green Hornet". But you can see by "Enter the Dragon" this was way more than just a martial arts film. He deliberately used American women in this film instead of Chinese to further show this was happening to American women. Only to have the film edited and no one even talk about the subject. No wonder he was getting so upset as to pull away from America about the time of his death.
Contrast this to "Thoroughly Modern Millie" with Julie Andrews which came out the same year as "Enter the Dragon" where they're then spoofing the idea of Asian sex trafficking like it's a joke. The finale is her sending in a man dressed as a woman so they can "rescue" all the American girls who had been sold into sexual slavery to work in an opium den with everyone laughing like isn't this a big joke!
Only it's not so funny right now. The new Chinese president has declared a war on corruption. I've been helping victims of a ring since 2006 where they bring the women over from China after they hit their 40's and are "too old" for the Chinese crowd to staff massage parlors that are popping up everywhere! Look around major cities and you'll see sometimes four parlors to one corner! Not a one of them advertised on Backpage by the way. These women are told if they don't comply with their control they'd be deported back to China where they would be charged with crimes that get the death penalty over there.
Did you know that if charged with being a madam back there you get the death penalty in China? A woman deported back to China as a victim can be retried in China where some crimes are met with the death penalty. Madaming one. Incest is another. One victim I've been working with was drugged as a child, then posed in pornography with her natural sister and brother, and the traffickers have these photos. Meaning she could have these photos turned over to the government - and she'll wind up with a death sentence. Which is why it's not such a great thing for victims to be deported back to China - without making sure they won't be charged back there for that reason first.
Last year, they finally arrested Liang Yaohui, and 47 other men. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/1425144/dongguan-police-chiefs-suspended-prostitution-crackdown-following-cctv?page=all Liang operated a five star hotel, along with something like 800 escort services, 3000 massage parlors, and 1000's of women working under him. After his arrest, came another man who was a part of the People's Congress, and a few more who were high up in government. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/policies-politics/article/1909819/chinas-anti-graft-investigation-guangdongs-vice The impact has been severe enough to have actually affected their economy! http://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/1466356/crackdown-dongguan-sex-trade-leaves-wider-economy-slump
Has this done anything to shut down the operations over here in the USA? Now you have an idea why I was protesting the so called "reality show" of "8 Minutes" back in April of 2015. What they were showing as "victims of sex trafficking" was the concept of a single mom who can't find work so she's placing ads on Backpage to turn tricks to raise money for bills. That's NOT A TRAFFICKING VICTIM.
That's a PROSTITUTE. There is a difference. I felt like this show was like a magician's trick where they pull a coin out of your ear that wasn't there before but was really behind his fingers - slight of hand. I spent YEARS of my life, and took great hits financially as well as relationship wise, and to my career, to go onto national TV over and over again with REAL victims pushing to get our country to the point where this issue got federal recognition, i.e., meant it was "real". Like how Indians push to get their reservations "federal recognition" so they can build a casino or whatever they want with this recognition. I was told we couldn't get help to these victims, proper help, until we got "recognition" which was the Trafficking Act of 2000 passed. Or so we were told.
Only to have people like Randall Tobias come in with the TVRA of 2003 and suddenly put all the money and power in this movement WE started into the hands of the church! End result? We get a pastor named Kevin Brown trying to brainwash America into thinking a prostitute is a "trafficking victim" in "8 Minutes"! Now why would they be doing this? Something the CIA would do or Cointelpro right? Oh the CIA isn't using this movement as a smoke screen for other activities.
Oh no. https://theintercept.com/2015/10/26/pentagon-missionary-spies-christian-ngo-front-for-north-korea-espionage/ Yeah that's why this article came out then proving that yes the CIA is using this movement as a smoke screen for their activities. That's why Jeane Palfrey released her "Black Book" showing Randall's name in it - not as a "john" but as one of the men who was forcing her to be a madam as a front for their operations. That was her defense and why her attorney who raised it was disbarred and hit with a gag order - Montgomery Sibley.
I got news for you CIA guys who might be reading this - before I started this movement to have sex trafficking recognized as "real" in this country, I studied very carefully other movements like the Civil Rights Movement, Gandhi's movement to stop British domination in India, the Black Panthers, even Malcolm X's movement to have people understand Muslim's can be blond and blue-eyed who started out as a pimp and a drug dealer. So I read up all on how you guys operate. Right down to things like the hidden videotape made at ACORN when you were trying to stop Obama from getting elected, to the way you guys did the hidden videotape of Planned Parenthood and used that to get them defunded before it could be ruled the whole tape itself was a crime. Even how you guys planted "fake" members of the civil rights movement which included information on the Mississippi Three that got those young protesters murdered.
So I'm seeing how we've got the "fake" survivors in Samoly Mam, the "fake" rescuers like Hillier who "Taken" was based on before he got exposed and arrested as a fraud, the "fake" outreach program like Kevin Brown tried to pass off on us with "8 Minutes" who even Polaris has said they did not give him consent to air their hotline in connection with his show, the "fake" teen victims like Wilthema Ortiz Pettigrew who testifies at Congress about things that REAL teen victims wouldn't say - all while silencing REAL survivors and REAL outreach programs.
All magicians slight of hand and masterful propaganda. People now know sex trafficking IS real - so you're now going to control what people think it is. Right down to VICE filming now supposedly what sex trafficking is in Nevada - but they won't even talk to me about filming anything to do with the work we've been doing in Nevada since 1996. Nothing about the program who gave an international press conference in 2007 to release the report commissioned by the State Dept. on how sex trafficking is a part of the legal sex industry in Nevada. A fact validated by Bob Herbert before he got run off the NY Times for such validation he did by independently double-checking my research on his own. Nothing about the program John Quinones came out to research on his own and was so impressed he devoted a whole chapter to us in "Heroes Among Us".
Nothing about the program who defeated the brothels' "back door" hearing that wasn't even listed on the calendar to try and expand legal brothels into downtown Las Vegas WE found out about and WE brought in a survivor of sex trafficking in the legal brothels to testify who got not only this defeated but is now why there's a Mob Museum standing where they had once wanted to put legal brothels in 2013. Nothing about the program that's personally chased more than one legal brothel owner right out of the business, and even out of the country as we did Joe Conforte - while other groups sell t-shirts and call themselves "abolitionist's".
Katherine Chon, co-founder of Polaris, who runs the National Trafficking Hotline, re-criminalizes prostitution in Rhode Island and calls that "abolition". She addresses that Nevada has legal brothels also in this complaint, but doesn't go after them at all. Oh no, she goes after the ONE place in the USA where a woman can legally work as a prostitute WITHOUT being arrested as a criminal that is NOT being controlled by MEN like Dennis Hof, Lance Gilman, Joe Richards, the Hell's Angel's (the Shady Lady was owned by the Hell's Angel's), or Joe Conforte and calls that "abolition"?
Making it to where the only place in the USA where one can work legally as a prostitute is under the control of brothel owners who have a repeated history of threats and actual violence against the prostitutes who work for them? I'm willing to bet she got a gift basket by the Brothel Owners Association after that win. I'm not saying the fact Katherine Chon is Chinese has anything to do with this - but I can say that all these misguided attacks upon "rogue" sex workers who don't have pimps who do advertise on Craigslist and Backpage, and who did work quietly in Rhode Island within the law, and without ANY type of pimp, trafficker or control ARE now being forced through the shut down of sites like Backpage, the Erotic Review, and Rentboy, to have to go to work at those "legal" businesses like massage parlors, legal brothels, or even strip clubs run by the traffickers who are able to keep the cops at bay now because of what she did in the name of "abolition".
What they're doing isn't a "war on trafficking" but a "war on independent sex workers" all while convincing the public they're "saving" someone. Yeah just like the modern Tea Party was "for the people" (what the Koch wanted you to think) and not another con with the same brilliant propaganda. Where those who exposed the Koch Brothers found themselves being attacked and smeared just like I've been lately. Because they didn't stop with the fake survivors, the fake rescuers, and the fake outreach projects. Oh no, because Sex Workers Anonymous is the oldest, and largest, group of REAL survivors who have built up 30 years of respect within the sex industry by people who know that we'll go in and help those who need help without targeting the industry as a whole - but only those who are the predators.
So the "fake" sex workers was next. Or hasn't anyone noticed that Maxine Doogan isn't attacking people like Kevin Brown - but she is attacking survivors helping victims such as Katherine Griffin-Townsend and myself. That she's trying to push for decriminalization - while also trying to block assistance to foreign trafficking victims while asking a judge to try and hide language in her ballot so voters don't even know what they're voting for, and cutting funding for St. James Infirmary, one of the country's largest providers of assistance to the LGBT sex workers in San Francisco.
Further, asking sex workers to self-incriminate themselves, give her over their bank information, sign her petitions giving out their IP address, and then asking sex workers to come to public events on public sites where they can be legally photographed without their consent. All while complaining two sex workers had been forced to testify against her falsely by a cop who was raping them while coercing them - and then she attacks the one hotline in the country where a sex worker being threatened, harmed, or even trafficked, by a cop can go and get help to get out safely and effectively? Not buying it. Another Samoly Mam if you ask me - designed to make sex workers not see the one exit sign out. Because if Maxine, and her minions, really cared about sex workers - they'd not only be putting their energy into defending women in Amber Batts, and Latesha Clay, instead of "Kamylla" and "The Cupcake Girls" - but they'd also be shouting from the rooftops that one can avoid incarceration by attending our SWA meetings.
Anyway, I invite you to view this clip of "Enter the Dragon" that's been consistently edited out of most of the showings of it on TV to see how Bruce Lee was trying to alert us that sex trafficking was real, how it operated for some, and that it was happening to American girls (who bring in a lot of money when sold to other countries - something even the film "Hostel" eluded to).
I think it puts a whole new light on the issue of his death, and that of his son, Jason. I mean it's not like Gary Webb wasn't found shot twice by a shotgun to the head they tried to say was suicide, Jeane Palfrey was also found hung in a shed in her mother's back yard (where she'd gone to hide in fear because someone had been following her the whole day previously), Buffalo Jim they're saying "overdosed" on GHB (which isn't a recreational party drug), Brandy Britton was also found hung without a suicide note before she could testify, Rick "Freeway" Ross was set up to be in prison for the rest of his life, and basically anyone who has been revealing anything to do with modern American sex trafficking isn't being found dead under weird circumstances, etc. I even found out that a pimp who had done the Donahue show with us in 1993 was also the victim of an attempt to slap him with a drug trafficking charge by an informant in an almost identical manner as what happened to Rick Ross, and the attorney who defended him was also disbarred for a while like Montgomery was.
These people were clearly trying to cover up what they were doing back then by pretending it didn't even exist as we can see was the case in the 1970's. Think about it - was anyone talking about the sex trafficking part of "Enter the Dragon" when it was first released?
Now the cat's out of the bag - do you really think they've just given up? Hell no - they're just using a different means of concealment. I learned this after watching the movie about "Wikileaks". Our government learned they can't keep anything secret any longer with this site. So they've learned to rely heavily on the science of "dis" information. Probably why all this media is being spread around trying to convince you prostitution and sex trafficking is the same thing. I mean even those in the sex industry are trying to tell the public "things like this aren't trafficking" but they still aren't listening are they? No trafficking looks different than prostitution.
These are your sons and daughters America. I think it's time to start listening with an educated eye and ear. People like Wilthema Ortiz Pettigrew did not fly to Washington on her own dime. Not when she's saying she's a "starving student" and can't afford to even pay for school is she paying for a trip to Washington to testify. She certainly isn't the one writing all those articles in the Washington Post, CNN or the NY Times. Anyway, check this video out and then ask yourself if maybe Bruce Lee, and maybe even his son, Jason,.might have died trying to tell you something.
Side note - within five minutes after posting this video, I received a copyright complaint by Warner Brothers. I responded that I have the right under "fair use" to comment upon this video for the public benefit, and gave them full credit. I am not selling the clip, but using it to raise awareness he did in fact put this content in his film. We'll see how it goes as I filed a dispute in response.
