SWOP'S GATHERING OF PUBLIC DATA ON SEX WORKERS

Edward Snowden revealed there is an intentional campaign going to gather data on people for the purposes of "pushing" on them by the CIA, and other agencies.  Anyone who has seen his film is aware of what's going on.

Which would explain why SWOP is not acting like a group "by sex workers for sex workers" since Robin Few, their founder, died in 2012.  While our 12 step program has undergone extreme viscious attack by members of SWOP, and their new "leadership" seems to act like we're not members of the sex worker community any longer for some reason despite the fact we operate the only hotline in the country where sex workers who want help to exit the industry can call for help without fear of any of their information being disclosed to anyone, especially law enforcement, they decided to try and set up their own version of a 12 step meeting for sex workers in Las Vegas.  You can see how they advertise this meeting online which courts have ruled is the same as a "public notice" by the way.


Thus rendering this meeting the same as if held in a "public place".  Which if you look at the actual meeting place ala Google map photos - it really is:


Since there is a public sidewalk in front of the place, anyone can park their car or stand there and film who pulls into that parking lot.  It's small enough it can't be argued that on a Saturday morning, when the other business's are closed there in that center, that the person is there for one reason and one reason only - the SWOP 12 step meeting.  So the person, car and license plate can be videotaped without the party's consent.

The law also states that anyone who does "not take steps" to make something "confidential" also waives any right to privacy.  A "12 step meeting" by the way does not have the same laws of confidentiality a "12 step program" does.  Our program, Sex Workers Anonymous, is a "12 step program" recognized officially by our government as a 501c3 and with approval from AA to adapt it's steps given to us in writing to do so.  

I have asked around some of the "old timers" in AA and NA in Las Vegas and they have no idea who is running this meeting.  Being I've sponsored sex workers, and ex-sex workers, in recovery for over 30 years total, with having done so in Vegas since 1996, I would think I'd hear about someone in the rooms starting this meeting.

So why?  Why would anyone ask someone to expose themselves to possibly being photographed legally in such a manner as to invite them to come to this meeting?  The profile for this meeting was created in December of 2016 and does not state what person is hosting this meeting.  

I take a lot of shit for being who I am, but you KNOW who I am behind our meeting.  You know I was a sex worker, I'm a person, I'm a person who has gone to great lengths to ensure the anonymity of our members, and I've refused money to give information on our members to law enforcement.  That's what you KNOW when you contact www.sexworkersanonymous.com is that a real ex-sex worker in recovery for 30 years is going to be there to help you when you call. 

There is no person standing behind this meeting that I can see.  I see a profile which wasn't opened until December of 2016 and that's it.  At least when people are "bashing" me - I'm a REAL PERSON.  I'm a bona fide ex-sex worker who has also been in recovery for 30 years.  You KNOW that.  I'm not a "catfish" profile either set up to gather information on sex workers which by the way SWOP has confirmed they are sending the data onto the government when they do their "tax returns" or explain "who they gave their grant money to".  Savannah Sly is also no longer their director.

So who and why would they ask sex workers in Las Vegas to do this?

SWOP'S IDEA OF A "MEETING" FOR SEX WORKERS

For those of you "old timers" in this community, you will remember that I've had a long term relationship in the past with both Sex Workers Outreach Project, otherwise known as SWOP, as well as Tits & Sass the blog.

Why?  Because SWA wasn't designed to get people out of the sex industry.   We were designed to help people get out who needed help to do so and couldn't get it from traditional sources like calling the police for help.  We were also designed to provide "alternative sentencing" for victims of sex trafficking who were being convicted as criminals - so they could come to our meetings instead of being forced into a jail term because of mandatory incarceration laws.  Remember, American women didn't have federal recognition they could even BE a "victim" until the Trafficking Act of 2000.  Up until then you were viewed only, and totally, as a "criminal" by our legal system.

Our hotline and program was instead designed for women like those who were being forced to work for DEA agents who owned a strip club in New Jersey.  I ask you - who do they call for help if they're being raped, trafficked, pimped, exploited, or otherwise abused by men with badges?  

Especially when back in the 1980's THEY are the ones viewed as "criminals" by the legal system - NOT the DEA agents.  There was a presumption that anyone who is a stripper is a "criminal" whereas when it comes to a cop, FBI agent, or DEA agent you then have the presumption they're not.  It slants the playing field for every minute prostitution is illegal in this country.  http://nypost.com/2015/05/20/dea-agents-secretly-owned-strip-club-with-illegal-immigrant-dancers-feds/

I myself was in that situation where I was being forced to do things illegal and dangerous I didn't want to do by men who were CIA, FBI, DEA, and also local cops in LAPD.  Some of those cases became the infamous RAMPART cases.  Others like mine were such I knew I'd never make it alive to testify in a court room so I instead created a "safe house".  It was I later learned the first safe house for adults in this country for what is now called "sex trafficking victims".  You can read about it at www.hightechmadam.com

So, how would I know if someone needed help?  They're going to call me for help?  HOW?  Again, take a look at the situation of these women being trafficked and exploited by those DEA agents in New Jersey.  Can they call me for help with the language barrier?  How would they know they could call our hotline for help?  The owners of the club are going to tell them?  

They're kept isolated in lives where they're supervised 24/7, being shuttled from home to the club daily.  I've got an interview from a victim like this who talks about how it took her a year just to get her traffickers to trust her enough to go to the store by herself at www.leavingtheliferadio.com

Meaning to me I think the whole premise of the Polaris National Trafficking Hotline is like a government "oxymoron" like "government intelligence".  I ask you how does a victim "call herself" for help when she's going to be under constant surveillance by her traffickers or pimp?  I know I didn't have any privacy when I was in that situation.

SO for years I relied upon phone calls from people in the community who knew I wasn't going to involve the police UNLESS that's what they wanted.  Referrals to us of sex workers who needed help of some kind used to come from sources in other words like SWOP or even the Tits & Sass blog, The Erotic Review, Redbook, Rentboy, and other such sites and people who have now all been busted and otherwise shut down.

EXCEPT SWOP who is flourishing AFTER their founder, Robin, died in 2012 for some reason.  http://www.nswp.org/timeline/event/death-robin-few 

Usually groups die when their founder does.  I mean look at Gabriella's work in Columbia as a case in point.  Since she died of cancer, everything started dying off in her group/work. http://www.akissforgabriela.com/?page_id=2742

But SWOP has been growing, flourishing, and for some strange reason chasing anyone who is a friend of mine, or has anything positive to say about SWA or myself right on out of their group and social media.

In fact, after Robin died, they at one point were even offering grants of $500 to "organize a chapter".  If you were verified as a sex worker by another sex worker, they were giving out $500 to cover things like refreshments for you to organize a local chapter of sex workers.   This was so you'd invite out local sex workers to come out for coffee, meet and greet, and get to know each other.  I was floored.  I mean let's all be bank robbers and put up an announcement on social media "hey the meeting of bank robbers is happening this weekend - come on down".

I still can't believe my eyes here what I'm seeing.  I moved to Las Vegas in 1996.  So I have lived in Las Vegas since 1996.  I'm a recovering addict so I'm "in the rooms" all the time in this town.  Anyone coming into recovery who is also a sex worker is usually told by anyone with any time in the rooms "you need to go talk to Jody".  

Why?  Because they know I run Sex Workers Anonymous and I've been clean since 1985.  They also know I sponsor a lot of men and women in this town who get, and stay, clean.  So many that I have a weekly meeting of just my sponsees where we get together and work on our step work.

So I got to tell you when I started hearing about THIS - I was wondering "wtf?"


Mind you when it comes to "recovery from addiction" for sex workers - I get referrals from the local mental health center, social workers, the local treatment centers, local therapists, and other old timers in other 12 step programs, and the list goes on in Las Vegas of the referrals I get.  By the way, no I don't get referrals from people who are trying to stay clean while STILL working in the sex industry.  

Why?  BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK.  Not during early recovery it doesn't.  You take someone with a week or month clean or sober and you put them in the industry and no they're not going to stay clean.  I won't engage in "insanity" when I know you can take a delicate "newcomer" and expect them to stay clean while undergoing the stresses related to the sex industry.  

Is that the "sex industry" only?  No it's not.  But if my sponsees, or people I work with in early sobriety, weren't getting, and staying, clean then I would understand the need for this meeting.  The thing is - I haven't even HEARD anything about this "meeting' in the rooms.  In fact, I don't know of one single "old timer" connected to some meeting on Saturday's for sex workers to "focus on their recovery".  

So I"m curious.  What's going on?  Who is running the meeting?  Why haven't I heard anything about this in the rooms of AA or NA?  Why didn't someone let me know about it so I could support the meeting?  I run a hotline based out of Las Vegas so if there's a recovery meeting going on in town then I need to know about it to provide referrals properly.  

For these reasons, I reached out to the person holding the meeting to find out more.  I was then BLASTED with an attack back.  Threatened, insulted, lied to, not exactly very "recovering" way of acting towards another recovering addict mind you.  So I got even more curious, especially when they tried to lie to me and say that posting the address, date and time of this meeting was "not a public notice" because it was "on social media".  Especially when everyone knows the courts have now ruled that something like Twitter IS "public".  

So I went to Google maps to see what this address was and look at this:

I would NEVER EVER hold a meeting labeled for "sex workers" at such a location and I'll tell you why.  Notice how you can see the license plates on every car in that parking lot for one thing.  For another, you can see anyone getting out of their car and going into that building clearly while standing on another public street.  Meaning you can be standing there as long as you want watching that building from a public street and not even a cop can come and move you off that property.  Even if you're standing there with a camera taking pictures.

I also would never label a meeting for "sex workers" either because in the eyes of the law it's the same as saying "bank robbers".  In other words, it is "probable cause" for law enforcement to get a warrant to surveille this meeting for information on criminal activities.  For another, for someone involved in illegal activities to host a meeting with another person in criminal activities under the law it's considered a "conspiracy".  Under the Patriot Act, it's illegal for members of an illegal activity to get together to talk about that activity by itself.  

I know this because in the 1950's addicts going to Narcotics Anonymous meetings used to get arrested for going to meetings.  Special laws had to be written to stop that which are on the books.  But the law states you are allowed to go to a 12 step PROGRAM, not a meeting, but a PROGRAM, and have the cops leave you alone.  If you look at the announcement for this meeting - it's an SWOP meeting if anything.  It's not a separate, distinct, "program".  All the more reason this meeting is not exempt from a search warrant, surveillance, or even being considered as being a meeting where people are "conspiring" which doesn't require any physical evidence of anything illegal for the people at this meeting to be arrested.  

THIS meeting is A COP'S WET DREAM.  Especially in Nevada now that AB67 has passed allowing the cops to videotape and surveille any thing that they "believe might involve sex trafficking".  The meeting was announced in a public forum, Twitter.  Plus you can watch the meeting, and who comes to this meeting, from a public street, even taking photographs.  No one can tell you that you can't stand on a public street and take photos.  

The courts when it comes to "confidentiality" are very clear that anything in the "public view" can be videotaped without the parties consent.  ESPECIALLY in Nevada where it's only a "one party"  needed consent to record anything.  

Meaning in 1000 years I would NEVER EVER host a Sex Workers Anonymous meeting, or even a meeting of my sponsees at any meeting set up like this one is.  I wouldn't be up at 10 am on a Saturday evening nor do I know anyone in the sex industry, or even retired from the industry, who would be up and around on a Saturday morning.  Telling me whoever put this together can't possibly be someone who used to be in the sex industry, or even is, who is in recovery and clean.  No recovering addict who used to be, or is in, sex work would have a Saturday morning meeting.

Especially since most sex workers I know in Vegas have kids.  I'm not going to say where we have our meetings, but I've had to make accommodations for everyone's kids at our SWA meetings.  My daughter has grown up knowing "her job" is to entertain the other sex workers' kids so the moms can talk freely.  I don't even see any type of place where the kids can go and keep themselves busy.  Another reason why I usually have our meetings either when the kids are in school, or after they go to bed.  If I don't, then I have to hold the meetings at places like Chuckie Cheese so the kids can play while the mom's talk.  

This whole thing illustrates why anything involving a certain community should INVOLVE that community.  I have quite a few "sponsees" in Nevada and I can assure you there's no way any of us would be getting up at 10 am on a Saturday morning for one thing.  For another, the place isn't set up to help us watch our kids, nor at a good time where the kids are in school.  Most of them are working Friday or Saturday, and their husband's are home on Saturday's also.  It's why I don't host any SWA meetings of our program on a Saturday anyway.  Haven't in over 20 years.  

I asked around the local "old timers" in AA and NA and they don't know anything about this meeting.  The person behind it told me that I was only curious because I wanted to "be relevant" which is insane being I asked because I'm in recovery and I need to know about meetings for the purpose of our hotline.  They also tried to deny this meeting is one that's too "public" in my opinion to host sex workers in recovery.

Let me tell you about REAL sex workers.  If some people even find out you're in porn, stripping, let alone prostitution - you're liable to get Child Protective Services at your door wanting to take your kids.  Were you arrested for anything?  No.  Doesn't matter.  The current systems in this country view a sex worker as an "unfit' mother.  Men are suing for custody over this constantly on that ground and winning.  I see CPS taking kids right and left from our members who aren't doing anything even illegal.  

You don't know how the neighbors will act.  Just KNOWING WHERE YOU LIVE can be dangerous, ESPECIALLY IN LAS VEGAS.  https://downtrend.com/vsaxena/cytherea-raped-by-gang-of-teen-thugs

I know of a woman who took a cab home one night from working as a stripper.  The cab driver then swung back around after work, broke into her home and then RAPED  her.  If she had not had a gun in the house who knows what the guy would have done to her.  

Look at the way the public reacting with War Machine attacked Kristy Mack who resides in Vegas.  I have watched as 1/2 of her social media attacked her after that attack, and I have watched HORRIFIED as Jon's attorney went after her like she caused that attack.  A treatment I don't think she would be being subjected to if she was a secretary or a cashier somewhere.

REAL SEX WORKERS know there are DANGERS in just anyone knowing who you are, where you are, and especially to match a photo of you with your license plate and car make and model.  Anyone can run those plates and maybe even find out where you live.  Unlike California, Nevada requires you to list a home address on your plates and doesn't give you the legal right to protect that information in case you have stalkers.  

So who in their RIGHT MIND would put something out on social media saying "hey boys the hookers who are also coming off drugs are going to be at this address at this time come on down"?  

Certainly not anyone who has our protection and best interests at heart.  I know I go to a lot of trouble to find locations for our SWA meetings.  I have to scout for places where parking is "off street" and can't be seen from the street for reasons this meeting illustrates here.  I have to find ways to make it NOT apparent or obvious they're coming to our meeting like how for years I had one of our meetings in a public library.  This way if anyone was being followed it appeared they were just going to the library for a book.

PLEASE if you are in sex work, or used to be, and you're wanting to connect to others who are clean and sober - please contact www.sexworkersanonymous.com  We'll protect your anonymity and I have PLENTY of numbers of old timers all over the country who are there just to help you with your recovery who are more than happy to talk to you, work with you, and to do so where you are PROTECTED from any thing where you could be recorded, that information used against you, or who knows what's going on with this "data mining".  


Look - I was approached in Las Vegas by a vice detective back in 2007.  He offered me a substantial amount of money if I would become an "informant" about the types of calls we get in SWA, as well as tell them about what and who we're working with in Nevada.  I refused that offer.  

So trust me - information on who you are means money to some people.  Clearly someone is also trying to make sure they control your environment also if they're hosting a 12 step meeting about recovery when none of the old timers in this town know anything about this meeting.  

PLUS I'M ONE.  I am not only an ex-sex worker, with lots of friends still in the industry, working with our kind daily, but I'm also in recovery for years now and I reach out to these people and they ATTACK ME?  Threaten me with legal action and lawyers?  INSULT ME?  Okay if this is for real - that's the kind of recovery you want?

By the way, if you think there aren't people trying to identify personal information on people who are sex workers - think again.  

Here's an article about how Twitter was served with a legal demand to give them personal information on an account holder for no valid legal reason other than just being pissed off - https://www.aclu.org/blog/speak-freely/government-goes-after-critic-twitter-remembers-constitution-just-time

Do you think it's safe to be completely entirely open about being involved in sex work in some fashion?  Catch this article - http://www.africanindy.com/features/phones-protect-ugandas-sex-workers-from-police-harassment-5570964


If you need help and want to get it SAFELY - please call us first.  We know of many resources and people who are SAFE.  

As for "Tits & Sass" - someone came in and took over their site about two years ago, white washed every single comment by me or SWA, about me and SWA, and made it appear for some reason we don't even exist.  I ask you, how can that be a "sex worker community" forum when someone who has been a part of this community for over 30 years, has answered over 500,000 calls from sex workers on our hotline over that time, is "white washed" entirely off their site?  If I'm treated that way - then how much do they care about ALL of our voices?  Clearly it's only the ones they APPROVE of.

CONSPIRACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY LAWS

Things are not as they appear. Since Robin died, there has been a disturbing trend for groups like Abeni, SWOP, and others to be clearly just being used to gather information on sex workers. One of the reasons we choose to be a 12 step program is because of the issue of confidentiality - as well as "probable cause" with respect to conspiracy laws.

If you were to start up a group of bank robbers, and then to announce you're having a meeting for those bank robbers to get together to talk about the beauty of being a bank robber - guess what? The police can then use that as "probable cause" to get a warrant to tap the phones of the people organizing that meeting, the people attending that meeting, and to try and gather evidence to charge the organizers of that group under the "conspiracy" laws which became even broader under the Patriot Act because of George W. Bush.

Calls to our 12 step hotline are protected under the confidentiality laws. Things said in an SWA meeting are protected under the confidentiality laws. Even if an informant were to be sitting in one of our meetings - they can not enter into evidence anything they'd heard at a SWA meeting legally because we are just as protected with respect to confidentiality as AA is. That goes for putting wire tapes on our members' phones, their social media, and also our meetings and communications between members. Having a meeting is also not "probable cause" for the police to get clearance to photograph anyone at this meeting, nor eaves drop in any fashion.

These laws came about because there was a time when cops used to bust addicts for going to NA meetings. They would bust them for "violating probation" because of "congregating with other felons". special laws were passed which made going to a 12 step meeting NOT violate one's probation also.

Now that pisses off some people who would like to know more about our membership, as well as to eaves drop in on our members. Something which can't be done legally so there are some who are resorting to illegal methods. But we're confident no one is going to be arrested under the conspiracy laws for organizing our meetings, nor can anything said within our group context be used against anyone in a court of law because it's all protected with respect to confidentiality. Something important to know because many victims might still have things outstanding they were involved with where statutes may be running against them still.
For example - we had a member who died some years ago who was a teenager when sold to a pimp. This pimp would make one of the kids kill another one of the kids every month not only to establish his power, but also to gather blackmail. He would keep the evidence in a "safe place" and threaten the kids with them being arrested for murder if they ever thought of running from him, or trying to testify against him for his trafficking of them. In this man's case, he turned the gun on the pimp and murdered him when he was only 13 years old.

But the fact remains other victims in that trafficking ring had murdered someone because of being forced to do so by this pimp. Just because they're a juvenile, and just because they were a victim, doesn't exempt them from possibly standing a trial over the murder of that other person. Something which they might want to talk about in a meeting, or with their sponsor during a 5th step. Something for which we wanted to make sure they could share in their 5th step as part of the recovery process without having that sponsor then slapped with a subpoena demanding they testify against that person about what was said to them.

Just because some group claims they're a "sex trafficking" group or rescue doesn't mean they have the same confidentiality laws protecting their clients as we do in our program. Also, this goes for sex workers activist groups who want to push towards decriminalization. We had the same problem with COYOTE meetings - the predecessor to SWOP.

Which was why a lot of COYOTE members were also SWA members, and we'd organize things during SWA meetings to give those activists protection. Otherwise, we'd see people in similar situations drug off on a conspiracy charge and threatened with felony arrests and jail time.

If you don't understand what I mean by any of this - then please consult an attorney with respect to the conspiracy laws, as well as the confidentiality laws. Do not forget for one moment that just because sex trafficking domestically has received now federal recognition finally - that does not automatically mean prostitution suddenly stopped being a crime in 99 % of the USA. Nor has pimping and pandering gone off the books where I once saw someone convicted of a felony simply for giving a girlfriend of hers the phone number of a good regular. Receipt of a $1.00 from the "earnings of a prostitute" is a felony. That INCLUDES DONATIONS by the way.

Meaning that if a group or cause is soliciting donations from prostitutes - they could be charged with felony pimping. Now since we also accept money from prostitutes who buy our literature - this is again why we choose a 12 step program for legal protections not afforded us otherwise. I don't have to worry about the DA or IRS stepping up and demanding our financial records on our members for this reason. Again, something not afforded non-12 step programs.

There's also a little thing caused the 5th amendment. You have a right not to incriminate yourself which you are essentially doing if you go to some of these other groups and admit to some of the things you've done which may be illegal. Including if you admit to being involved in an illegal career in order to be accepted as a member to that group. Again, something which our members to our group are protected from such things.

Now if you want to go around waving a banner saying essentially you're a criminal and you want to organize a meeting of criminals and to do so without partnering with us in some fashion to afford yourself the benefits of these protections - then you need to ask yourself why someone would deny you that protection?

Yes there is a site up attacking us that was set up by Maxine Doogan, Domina Elle, and Norma Jean Almodavor. There is also a tracking cookie on that site. If that site was set up to attack us as a warning to sex workers - why the tracking cookie? Why target for identification people who are thinking about contacting our program for help to exit the sex industry? Why do they care who is contacting us enough to set up this trap to try and capture that information?

Good questions and something to think about. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the grant I traced from Swanee Hunt to Domina Elle's art gallery in Denver, the government's grant to Meg Munoz in Orange County, nor Maxine's recent over-turning of her felony conviction for pimping suddenly. Nah - not a thing to do with any of that . . . .

HOW THIS WAR IS FOUGHT

When looking into past civil rights movements - one where you can really see how our American system works is how Martin Luther King was opposed.  How much effort went into one man is mind boggling.  What's even more mind boggling is how did he ever accomplish anything with all this opposition?

Read this article so you understand their tactics - http://thefreethoughtproject.com/fbi-memphis-polices-admitted-involvement-assassination-mlk/

First, they had a photographer following him around that MLK thought was a "trusted friend" who in reality was an informant working against him.

Second, they "attacked his marriage".  If anyone remembers, Julian Assange had a woman come on to him sexually and then cry "rape".  How convenient for the people trying to shut him up.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-11949341  I'm sorry but statistically very intelligent people aren't rapists.  Rape is about control and intelligent people know 1000 other ways to control and dominate someone without resorting to sex or violence.

Third, they "tried to get him to commit suicide".  They sent tapes of his affairs and threatened to expose them to the public that he was just human after all.  It was only when he refused to kill himself, that they then resorted to assassination.

Fourth, take a good look at this group "The Invaders" spoken of.

"According to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, a black civil rights group named the Invaders sabotaged the March 28 demonstration by distributing hundreds of two by two sticks attached to placards into the hands of impressionable black children caught breaking store windows. The Invaders allegedly incited violence which MLK was opposing."

This group, the "Invaders" claimed to be a group in support of the movement but in reality were being used to try and discredit MLK.  

We are in a "civil rights movement" of another sort today - that which is affecting members of the sex industry.  We are being treated as less than human.  By being called "criminals" and now even "sex offenders", the government justifies all kinds of injustice against us.  

People don't use effective tactics and then just give up on them.  This shows the tactic of a fake group being set up to supposedly be about something while in reality taking it down.  Now ask yourself - who would be such a group today claiming to want to help sex workers?

I have been approached by "fake" photographers before.  Including this woman who claimed she was coming all the way from Finland to supposed do a whole art piece on sex trafficking survivors.  Only when she showed up at the meeting I insisted upon before allowing her to photograph any SWA members - she showed up without a camera.  REAL photojournalists don't go anywhere without their camera's!  

I handed her my camera and asked her to show me how to use it.  It was painfully clear she didn't know how to use a camera.  Strange I thought since she'd sent me a copy of her portfolio.  Only when I went home I put the images into Google Search.  It turned out her portfolio had been purchased from stock photo sites.  I called the magazine she said she was working for and the editor said she had "volunteered to be an intern there but hadn't submitted any work yet".  Not hard then to get that reference set up.  

Here was a man following MLK around claiming to be someone "documenting the history" who was in reality an informant.  What better way to get photos sent back to the FBI and Cointelpro than right out in the open?

Which explains some of these documentary workers who keep calling up wanting to do a "reality show" about our work.  It's why I've always turned them down also.  I remember watching an interview with Michael Jackson once where the guy made him appear to be a nutjob.  Only Michael had been running his camera's too at the same time.  When I saw the UNEDITED version from Michael's camera - it was a whole other story.  So Michael wasn't being paranoid after all - he was well aware of how the media can be used against you if you're not careful.

The most important thing to learn from this is that those opposing the civil rights movement focused most of their efforts onto discrediting one person - MLK.  They took his human failings and used that to stop people from organizing behind him.  He was HUMAN.  Not a God.  An only an imperfect human being would see that as African American's they weren't being treated like humans.  Those who stood behind MLK knew it wasn't about MLK - it was about THEM.  

Now look around and ask yourself - who could be that fake group today claiming to be about helping sex workers while in reality selling them out?  

Who today is attacking someone in this movement for their human failings?  

Learn from history!

LETTER I WROTE ARIANNA OF HUFFINGTON POST

Dear Arianna:

I'm preparing a report for the new administration about to be elected about the state of sex trafficking in the USA.  So far, I've been asking the Huffington Post to allow me to print SOMETHING, anything, about the work we're doing on this front.

So far, I've been ignored while you've brought in one after the other after the other of "influencers".  A common trade practice by companies such as Amazon - who just happens to have been arrested for prostitution a few months ago also.
http://www.kiro7.com/news/local/microsoft-leader-former-amazon-director-charged-in-prostitution-sting/281281333

 As of this moment, I'll be noting in my report this fact unless you have some explanation for why you continue to allow the views of "influencers" in your publication - but yet refuse to print even one word from this country's oldest, and largest, group of survivors of sex trafficking domestically, Sex Workers Anonymous.  Leaving us with only our blog to post some of our views and cases.  http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-new-mafia-in-america.html

Your publication claims to be "LGBT friendly".  However, the groups you do publish articles supporting exclude the LGBT community in one fashion or another.  However, we are the ONLY group working with victims that accepts everyone across the board as members, and our executive board is comprised also of LGBT community members.

In fact, one of the two founders of our 12 step program was a lesbian.  However, I find no such representation within SWOP - who you print article after article supporting their views.  As well Christian groups who refuse to work with the LGBT community, nor admit them in their sex trafficking shelters in any way.

But our voice - you ignore.  Even in your LGBT section of your publication - you ignore us.

So before I go to press - any explanation?

THE NEW MAFIA IN AMERICA

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-trafficking-ring-20160823-snap-story.html

The "victims aren't cooperating" because they have a few people behind bars.  So what?  A few people who have unlimited resources and attorney's to intimidate prosecutors and all others in prosecuting this case.

They can "lose" witnesses right in the jail for one.  http://abc7.com/news/convicted-deputy-testifies-about-tanakas-tirade-against-fbi/1269065/  Remember Paul Tanaka shot a man down in front of other officers and then got put in charge of his own probe?

Remember they have people in the media claiming "these women aren't being trafficked"?   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alison-bass/were-sex-workers-caught-u_b_9093678.html  Reports done by the way without once asking our take on the situation as the oldest and largest group of survivors in the country I should add.  

Savannah Sly WAS NOT ADVERTISING ON THAT SITE.  

Remember they had a guy walking victims right past LAX security?  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/las-vegas-restaurateur-says-former-fed-manufactured-criminal-case-against-him  A man who could actually fake a whole criminal investigation against an innocent family.  I can only imagine what these people would do against a witness that would speak up.  

Remember they have cops on the so called "trafficking task forces"?  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/prostitute-reveals-new-details-bay-area-police-sex-scandal-article-1.2694945

Remember this was going on clear back in 2006?  http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/SAN-MATEO-COUNTY-Two-lawmen-caught-in-raid-of-2563465.php

Remember one of the men behind them was a part of the Chinese government?  http://sinosphere.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/29/trial-of-chinese-hotelier-features-accusations-of-prostitution/?_r=0

Remember this goes all the way to NY and even Wichita, Kansas where they threatened to kill a judge and the arresting officer?  https://www.justice.gov/usao-ks/pr/three-charged-sex-trafficking-wichita-massage-parlors

OMG I'm reliving my own case when I had the prosecutor begging me to testify against my traffickers and I kept telling him I'd never make it to a courtroom.  Oh yeah they changed my name to Rene Le Blanc and promised "they'd protect me" but I knew I'd never make it out of the courtroom.  See they forgot to change my mother's name whose case was joined to mine.  So where "Rosemary Williams" was going to court - so too was I.  You can see what I mean at the news clips at www.hightechmadam.com

I "refused to cooperate" to save my ass!  I knew good and well our system wasn't set up to go after and shut down the whole operation and if I "talked" I'd just be dead before my feet could hit the pavement to get out of that jail or courtroom.   Look what a great job they did for Margo Compton - http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/When-Jailbirds-Sing-It-was-the-pure-savagery-of-3018647.php

Five people in jail does not shut down the operation itself behind these people which is the ONLY way they're going to be safe.

Not when this goes all the way up to Homeland Security and the FBI it doesn't.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/fbi-employee-pleads-guilty-to-acting-as-agent-of-china/2016/08/01/fbb2da66-57fd-11e6-9aee-8075993d73a2_story.html

THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM WE HAD WITH THE MAFIA BACK IN THE 1970'S.  People were denying the mafia existed.  So they'd get some of the lower people on drug charges, traffic tickets, burglary charges, domestic violence, assault, etc.  But the RING ITSELF was being left to operate.  Thus people kept their mouths shut and even denied the "Cosa Nostra" existed.  

This is why until Joe Valachi came forward and not only confirmed the mafia was real, but explained how they operated, we didn't create the "racketeering" laws designed to bring down the whole operation.  People also don't realize until Rudolph Guiliani stepped up to create a special task force along with the Knapp Commission which also created Internal Affairs (Serpico), then the mafia was continuing to operate as a machine even if a few got thrown into jail here and there.

Meaning the victims in this case knows the "machine" behind what trafficked and used them is still operating.  The day before this arrest went down - I had Domina Elle hit my Linkedin profile, and someone connected to Maxine Doogan trying to threaten me to take down this blog.  I'm not sure what connection these two have with this - whether they're on the "good" or "bad" side here - but I find the timing quite interesting as being the day before these arrests go down.

But this person was claiming that Maxine Doogan was going around claiming to help prostitutes, only to steal their evidence and threatening them into silence so I'm opting for her being a trojan horse for the "bad" side of this equation.  She was convicted of pimping in 2008.

Anyone who comes after me and threatens me IS NOT on the side of the victims trying to break free of trafficking that's for damn sure.  Where's her phone call offering to help these victims?  Oh that's right she was busy trying to get language taken off the ballot to cut funding to these victims a few years ago  or did anyone miss that part of her history?  https://sfgov.org/elections/sites/default/files/ftp/meetingarchive/ftp/uploadedfiles/elections/Meeting_Information/BSC/Sex%20worker-background__.pdf

If you want to stop sex trafficking in this country - then we've got to stop thinking this is about some street pimp or a hooker on a corner.  This is a very sophisticated operation at work here.  It took a team of people to shut down the mafia and that's what it's going to take now.  These people were operating when I was a victim and the system itself is alive and well today - just rotating people through it like a churn.

This isn't about "prostitution" anymore.  There was once a time when a man could live on a farm and support his family by hunting in the woods and having some chickens running around.  Those days are gone.  Replaced by a "farming industry".  My second marriage was to a man raised by a farmer who held on to his family farm while the banks executed their take-over of "family farms" in the 1990's.   His father even spoke to me about how exactly the banks took over those farms and then changed the whole way food is made and marketed in this country before his death.

Which is one reason why all the bells and whistles have been going off in my mind as I've been watching the "take over of the sex industry" in the almost same identical manner.  If you want to know more about what I mean by this - catch this documentary "Hot Toxic Seat".  It shows IDENTICALLY how they're doing this to the world's "oldest profession" (many people say farming actually is the oldest however).  http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/toxic-hot-seat

THE PIMP LOBBY IS A TROJAN HORSE


I saw this and wrote the poster:

The people you're referring to as the "pimp lobby" are NOT what they appear to be. Not in my opinion anyway. There is NO ONE who has been around this field longer than me. I STARTED IT. I created the first hotline and program for sex workers to escape the industry back in 1987 when I started "Prostitutes Anonymous" now known as Sex Workers Anonymous. I was the first person in modern times to get up on a national forum and say not only was domestic sex trafficking real, that sex workers needed special help to exit the industry, and that our legal system needed to change in order to recognize that some of us were being forced, or even "sold" in the sex industry. I was the first person to propose an alternative to incarceration for prostitutes based on the idea not all of them were doing it by choice. So I know these people and I know this field. I know when things are "normal" and when they are not. I've been around this field so long that I know the "normal" patterns and when people are acting outside of those "typical patterns". You can go to www.hightechmadam.com and see news clips going back to 1984 to show you how long I've been working to help people not only leave the sex industry, but also to help trafficking victims, and asking for change as to how our legal system deals with these issues.

So I don't doubt they shut down this event. I also get "alerts" about these events, and have noted that they are always doing this sort of thing anymore, as well as it's always the same ringleaders. It's not the first time they've done something like this either. These women started coming after our group with a vengeance after Robin Few died starting about 2013. Robin Few was the founder of Sex Workers Outreach Project.
After Robin died, a whole new set of people came into SWOP who were not sex workers, nor ex-sex workers nor survivors. Because I had a great working relationship with SWOP before Robin died. SWOP had taken over after Margo St. James retired from running COYOTE. I was friends with Margo and a member of COYOTE - so when she retired and SWOP started up it was a natural progression to have a relationship with them.

For years and years, first COYOTE and then SWOP used to refer anyone who needed help to our organization. Our members, and myself, are not only "out" of the sex industry - we don't hang out with people active in the industry anymore than an alcoholic would hang out in bars or around drinkers. However, SWOP was engaging in regular outreach within the industry and would hear word when someone wanted to exit the industry, got arrested for prostitution, or needed help to leave a pimp or trafficking situation. Then we'd get the call for help. For someone to leave the industry - they can't go to people also in the industry to do so. It takes a network of people entirely out of the loop such as we are. In other words, we worked together in a partnership. During the time Robin was alive, it was truly a group of sex workers who were working towards harm reduction in a dangerous profession. Then when they'd learn of someone needing help - they'd call us in to do just that. Since we would do this without any "shame" or violating anyone's anonymity - we were on the speed dial of many of their chapters for years and years.

Now, our group has been officially researched over a 10 year study by a professor. Her name was Sharon Oselin and she published this report in "Leaving Prostitution". I've had reputable reporters such as John Quionones and Bob Herbert come out and thoroughly investigate our work. They've each written GLOWINGLY about our work. I knew nothing about professor Oselin's research while she was conducting it, and the reporters who we've let investigate us are those who have a long history in media, who have shown they are "reputable" and unbiased. Meaning when we've been investigated by quality, reputable, objective people - we've come out with flying colors. We're also the only group I'm aware of who has unpaid for, unsolicited, testimonials in their own voices up at www.leavingtheliferadio.com from people who we have helped long term. In fact, prior to 2007 I knew of no other group who had the size, nor the quality, of recovery coming out of our program, nor the number of "first's" under their belt either. Realize that our hotline is also the oldest there is with respect to adults wanting help for any reason to leave any part of the sex industry worldwide also.

In 2007, Melissa Farley came to me because we were the "gold standard" in the recovery field for sex workers and trafficking victims. In fact, we were the ONLY group who had produced survivors back then who were not coming out of JUST the drug treatment programs and homeless shelters. Over 2/3 of our members are not addicts, have never been homeless, and did not engage in sex work for "survival" but instead as a profession. Melissa told me she had been commissioned to do a study about sex trafficking in Nevada and needed my help because we were the only program in the state who had worked with helping this community. Because of her past books and research - I trusted her. I was naive. She told me if the study got done - then we would be able to open up a giant center with a $300,000 a year budget. Boy I was a sucker. That woman could teach pimps lessons. She literally came to me within one month of my mother dying so I wasn't even in my right mind at the time. Looking back I feel the timing to approach me as she did was intentional knowing I'd not be as sharp as normal.

She came in also to study how our program operated. I opened up the whole thing to her thinking this NCAST was a real project we were going to create together. I showed her how we operate. I introduced her to two women who were public about their membership - Brenda Myers-Powell and Kathleen Mitchell. Two women who had come through our program and then gone on to start their own programs. We don't treat our members like puppies. We don't put them in shelters and then trot them around to exploit them for donations. We empower them to follow their dreams, live in their own home, drive their own car, etc. We teach self-sufficiency from day one - because there's lots of ways to live off people.

That said, we also know when rescuing someone from an abusive situation or being trafficked - then you do need a temporary landing pad. Which is the only way we use housing - as a completely temporary situation. For example, most of the women I work with we may put them in a hotel until they're on their feet. Then I get them into programs where they're in school and get housing until they can get work, or even jobs where they get housing. Anyway, I made the horrible mistake of showing this woman exactly how we do rescues, our systems, our people, everything about how we operated INCLUDING how we relied upon people within the sex industry to provide us with our referrals along with the sources of those referrals. Before Melissa, I'd never allowed any "outsider" to see our methods and networks as I did then.

I'm sorry if this is long. I'm writing a book on this whole thing as we speak because the world, and this field, need to know the truth about what's going on because to understand the situation it covers a lot of history and information. Anyway, after picking my brain, using my resources, hearing our stories, meeting our members, etc., Melissa prepared the press conference to be held to release the report. You can read the clips from the conference at www.hightechmadam.com Now remember, the woman was making a lot of promises to me. Both financial and also ideologically. I mean this woman actually had me out shopping for an office to open up a center for God's sake to get me suckered into the whole game. She even told me Prince was going to meet us after the conference to support our work and Gloria Steinhem was giving us a $10,000 grant - I mean she was laying on the "talk" about the "future project we were creating".

She then tells me we need to fly Brenda and Kathleen to come to the press conference. When I asked "why?" she tells me that we're going to be accused of lying about what's in the report and we need to have actual members up there on the podium to make sure people know these stories of our work is "real". Like a dummy - I fell for it. Again, I look back and realize I wasn't thinking clearly what with having just recovered from a stroke, my daughter was sick, and my mother had just died after a long horrible illness. Now I see what she was doing in reality was getting as close to some of our strongest members who were public about their past so that she could hijack them out from under us. Case in point - up until that conference both Brenda and Kathleen had been open about their coming up in recovery through our program, and generous in their praises. They never hesitated to speak about our 12 step program in interviews. Now they act like they have no idea who they are while working with a group they were connected to by Melissa. I've seen corporations do this in order to walk off with their best talent.

As we walk into the hall for the conference filled with reporters, there's this Asian woman there I've never met before. Her name was Chong Kim. When I asked what she was doing there Melissa tells me "oh I wanted her to read some poetry". I don't know what to think - but "whatever" I'm thinking. So know I didn't know this woman from Adam on that day. Then the lights go on, and the sound guy is literally hooking me up to the mike. As he's hooking me up - Melissa comes over to me and pulls me aside. She tells me she's got to ask me something.

Now let me explain something first. Before me, there was Linda Lovelace. Linda had come forward in 1980 trying to tell the world about sex trafficking in America. She had told the public not only had her husband slash pimp forced her at gunpoint to make the film "Deep Throat" - but further the film was financed by the mob. So this wasn't just a "porn" but in fact a situation involving sex trafficking. There was no laws on the books against ANY of it at that time. So Linda's simply trying to alert the public, and the porn industry, about what's going on in this world.

Her pimp, Chuck Traynor, had moved on to manage Marilyn Chambers after Linda got away. So when Linda starts going on TV and telling the story - Marilyn is right there denying everything. She's saying things like "Chuck doesn't do things like that". Marilyn then believe it or not, adopted a country western music career at the same time. Meaning while Linda's telling her story - Marilyn is on tour going around to every bar and honky tonk as well as on TV saying how Linda is "just trying to get attention" and "she's just jealous I'm a star now and she's washed up" and everything she can to make the public not believe her.

Now remember this - it wasn't the producers nor Chuck making the denials. They had Marilyn doing it. Was it true? No. I met Marilyn at an NA meeting in 1985 after all of this when she was completely strung out on drugs. I can say that now that she's passed away. It was after meeting Marilyn in this NA meeting in 1985 - I knew I had to continue on with our work Linda had failed at. I had actually opened the first adult safe house for us in 1984. I got busted because of a pimp who made a false complaint against me. So I had backed up, but again after meeting Linda and Marilyn I knew our work had to continue. I mean no one was helping us because they weren't believing us. So that's why in 1987 I created the first hotline for those in the industry to call for help, and our 12 step program was so that those who were arrested for prostitution could come to us instead of jail.

My point I'm making here however is that the traffickers in this situation didn't defend THEMSELVES. No - instead they had a WOMAN defending them. So that's their method of dealing with these types of situations.

Back to the press conference - so the mike is going on me and Melissa is now saying she has to talk to me before we go speak to the press. I'm like "what's up?" She then says "I have to ask you to say a few things while we're up there." I'm like okay what?" She then asks me to make statements that are not true. Now when she asked me this - I had not been made aware yet of the TVRA of 2003 to grasp why she wanted me to make certain untrue statements. Here's what I mean by that. 

The laws we had on the books dated back to the Mann Act of 1910 with respect to sex trafficking. That was only to address Chinese women, or juveniles, who were brought across state lines or into this country for purposes of prostitution. Our government would pay to send them home. But we had nothing on the books to help American victims nor adults, or even other country's victims. Which is why I had to put together the first safe house in my own money. Our government wouldn't pay for something that didn't exist "officially".  I liken it to if we were being abducted by aliens.  There are no safe houses for alien abductees because our society doesn't recognize this is even real so why would they?  Back then, when we'd talk about sex trafficking we'd get the same reaction as if we had said little green men were doing this to us.  Realize also our country didn't even recognize the mafia was even real until Joe Valachi came forward in 1963.  Before that, we used to also deny the "five families" Italian mafia existed.  So we had no laws for this either pre-1963.   So also understand that prior to the Trafficking Act of 2000 - they had not "officially" recognized Americans could be trafficked on American soil.  Thus no funding or service existed sponsored by our government.  This is why I again started the safe house, hotline, 12 step program, etc., myself.  


The only thing they had on the books  back then was that we were "criminals". That was it. As a "criminal" - our word meant nothing in a court of law. The Hillside Strangler case was a pivotal point for us. Those two cousins had started out as pimps. Before they started killing women - they had been kidnapping women off the street randomly, then torturing them, raping them, and then forcing them to prostitute. The police did NOTHING but arrest us as prostitutes and treat us like the criminals. Because we were "criminals" then in the eyes of the law - they couldn't do anything.  When these men would terrorize a woman into staying in a hotel room, prostituting, then giving them the money - only the woman was arrested.  The police's stance was "well you could have left - no one had a gun on you" type of attitude because of the lack of understanding how trafficking operated.  Not unlike how years ago the law didn't recognize wives could be raped so wives used to not be able to get help from the authorities.  


Here's like the legal standard as to how and why we were not recognized as "victims" back then - if you rob a bank and if in the process of robbing that bank or escaping you fall over and harm yourself then no one is liable but you. The reason is because you're a criminal. This also means your word means nothing in the eyes of the court. It's like two bank robbers testifying against each other - the court doesn't believe either of them because they're criminals. So when I had a girlfriend get stabbed 51 times by these guys - we had gone to the police. We gave them their names, address, phone number, description, everything. The cops then threw us out of their office. Why? The Chief said "because in the eyes of the law as prostitutes, or criminals, we can't get a warrant out". When I asked why - he said because our "word wasn't credible in a court of law". 


Now - how do we change that? We aren't going to decriminalize prostitution across the board overnight. Nor are we going to legalize it. So I had gone to Edwin Meese. He was working with Linda Lovelace on the Meese Commission then about the porn industry and was the California Attorney General at the time. He had suggested that as as 12 step group like Alcoholics Anonymous - we could start at least going into the court and getting women sentenced for prostitution into an "alternative to incarceration" program like how they do in drug court for addicts. It had to be 12 step because no PhD or doctor or treatment center would associate their name with prostitutes back then - especially because of the HIV/AIDS epidemic raging at the time. 


Now, the government only looked at us a "criminals". So how do we change that? Well first we had to make our country understand HOW we were "victims". Because also, if you were beaten up, raped, kidnapped, or even murdered and a secretary - then the Office of Victim Services would help you out. 

But as a "criminal" - they wouldn't lift a finger. So I was the first person to go onto national TV after Linda and start "raising awareness" yes just like Linda - but with one other thing. I started calling out for our legal system to change and stop treating us as the criminals. Some of those early shows you can watch here - http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2016/07/interviews-from-1980s-and-early-90s.html

Okay, so out of those shows, I started getting calls from other Attorney Generals, prosecutors, etc., who agreed we were getting a raw deal. They didn't think it was right either they could help Asian victims - but not us as American's. So in the late 1990's we all had a big phone conference about what to do about this situation. They said the president would "never budge" on this issue. I suggested something to basically force the government's hand. I remember asking them if they "could" write out checks from that victim fund to help American victims even though it wasn't legal. They said "yes". I then said "do it - what is the president going to do - make you pay it back?" I felt like he wouldn't dare want to look bad by saying he didn't want to help American victims. So they said "let's do it" and they did. 
All of this work led to the Trafficking Act of 2000 passing. That made sex trafficking "official". The federal recognition meant for the first time they could also issue grants to help us. Just as they issued grants to open up drug and alcohol treatment programs - they could also help us. Not long after that though George W. Bush did in fact fire each of those AG's. The news said he gave "no official reason" but we knew what it was because each person he fired for no "reason" was on the phone with me that day fighting to help us and get us federal recognition. 
Now there's a reason why Jeane Palfrey revealed Randall Tobias' name in her "Black Book". Because the TVRA of 2003 was written by Randall Tobias. This was a revision to the Trafficking Act of 2000. What this did was change things. It said that out of the federal money and grants - ONLY "faith based" groups could get that money. Now as a 12 step group this meant we didn't qualify. On top of this limitation (which I don't even know if that's legal being we have separation of church and state here), it further said NO group who "called prostitution anything but a human rights violation", and didn't sign a pledge stating they were AGAINST prostitution - could also receive funding. Now remember, as a 12 step group we can't come out "against" anything. NA doesn't come out against medical marijuana and AA doesn't call out for Prohibition. 

Another effect of this revision was how this now limited help to only that of heterosexual Christian females.  By limiting help to "faith based groups" who exclude help to anyone who is male, transgender, LGBT, Jewish, Buddhist, etc., then it excluded them from help.  Here's an example to put it in perspective - go to any Salvation Army or Catholic Charity's residential trafficking program and show me ONE transgender in the program, ONE male, ONE gay male, or that they have kosher food options.  In jail and prison one can get kosher food, as well as the right to honor their religion.  However, I know of not one single trafficking program in this country which has kosher food available, nor which allows them to honor Jewish traditions.  When I've asked the Salvation Army why they've excluded lesbians, Jews, Buddhist, people from their residential programs I've been told "we don't have the physical accomodations".  Okay but it's also my understanding if you accept federal money than you can't exclude anyone.  We don't.  

But we also can't come out "against" anything on an official stance because we're a 12 step group. Especially since we're getting our referrals for help from people in the industry. I mean how can we be getting referrals from porn agents and producers if we're trying to run them out of business? So Melissa then says she wants me to "ask to outlaw everything to do with the industry" at the conference which is a total violation of what a 12 step group CAN do. It would literally be like if Bill Wilson got up at an AA press conference and demanded they bring back Prohibition. I explained to Melissa I couldn't do that for one.

For another, she wanted me to only limit our discussion to illegal prostitution. Which isn't true. That's like saying that an alcoholic only has to abstain from beer. Which in AA it's ALL forms of alcohol including mouthwash for God's sake they have to abstain from. Sex trafficking exists within LEGAL prostitution just as ILLEGAL prostitution. Sex trafficking also exists within the porn industry, strip clubs, fetish parlors, the whole 9 yards. If a trafficking victim wants to escape being made to work as a stripper, she can't just go work on a porn set another town over, and think she's going to be able to stay free of her traffickers. The sex industry is a "small world" that to leave trafficking you need to leave the ENTIRE industry. Now why would I limit the discussion of sex trafficking to only one teeny tiny segment of the sex industry of which illegal prostitution is? An industry that's just as real as the tobacco or alcohol industry I need to add. 

So I refused. That was when Melissa turned against me. She started pulling reporters into the hallway and talking to them privately. Next thing I know I'm seeing headlines saying that I've "demanded they outlaw the legal brothels and the whole sex industry". I never said this to the reporters - but the articles sure look like I did!  I mean talk about paint a bulls eye on my ass!  I'm living in Nevada and she makes it appear as if I've asked to "outlaw the industry"?   I wouldn't have said that either for fear of retribution let alone it's a violation of our 12 step structure!

Sure enough, literally after this press conference a reporter comes up to me from the Review Journal and tells me "you've just been blacklisted - our publisher says to tell you we don't care how many women die for not knowing about your program - we will never ever publish your name for any reason in our publications or any we control". Seems Sheldon Adelson wants to get prostitution legalized from what I've seen and he wasn't too happy about such a statement I NEVER MADE TO THE PRESS. 


Chong Kim at this conference read her poem and then started babbling. The next thing I know she's claiming that I had rescued her out of a Nevada brothel from sex trafficking. I about fell off the stage. I had no idea how to even react to this. Nobody believed her and it affected the whole credibility of our conference. I had the cab driver on the way home telling me he didn't believe her story. I was fuming. I was fuming because I have put my news clips online and opened up my life back in 1987. The reason why I did that was because I knew that if I wasn't 100 percent totally absolutely up front and honest - then no one would believe me sex trafficking was real. I had tIurned down movie and book offers because I knew if I took them then people would say I was making it up for money. It worked too or we wouldn't have seen the Trafficking Act of 2000 pass. So I was FURIOUS that Chong was put on that stage and couldn't understand why Melissa did this.  In other words, I've gone to great lengths to ensure everything I say is 100 % accurate and honest to establish credibilty seeing how Linda failed to be believed because of that lack of - and then to see Chong's story coming off as non-believable - just flipped my lid.  


I had wondered why Chong was thrown at us at the very last minute that way by Melissa when it went down.  Now I realized it was because Chong was her back-up stooge. If I didn't go along with the agenda - then she'd introduce Chong to the world and lent her our respect that day. Oh it gets better. 

The report we released was in September of 2007. The next thing I know in October Shared Hope comes to town and they give a press conference I wasn't even invited to. I just open up the paper and read about THEIR report on "sex trafficking in Nevada". Funny. I'm the ONLY group in Nevada at that time and had been the only group ever in Nevada - so I'm wondering where and when did they do work with victims in Nevada to release this report? 

So I get ahold of it and it is WORD FOR WORD OUR REPORT. Only with ONE change - every reference to my name was removed. Further, this report is BACKDATED. They backdated it to appear to have been released in April.  So here it is dated October in the press with the report itself showing an April date on it.   I read the interviews I was a part of and they're in this report word for word. So I got ahold of a few of the people and I asked them "Did you do a second interview for Shared Hope?" and they each said "no". Meaning it's the same report repackaged.


Okay so please explain to me why their report is our report word for word, minus any mention of my name, and it's backdated? I call Melissa and ask her about it along with the progress report of this grant she was telling me we're supposed to be getting. She had told me I was going to meet Prince and Gloria Steinhem and like when was I going to meet these people? Oh and by the way I recorded each phone call and saved each email - so I have back-up this is all true by the way. Including how I was going to be on the board of NCAST and I was going to "be in charge of direct services" and all that hooey she'd blown up my skirt. 

Only after the conference when it's getting time to produce on her word - she's like "I don't know what you're talking about". So when I wouldn't say what she wanted me to say like a puppet - she then turns around and let's me know I've been PLAYED. 


So what do I do? I put out the alert. I let SWOP know. I also let the blog Tits N Sass know who used to be a really good grapevine for people in the industry - both in and out of the industry. I sent out a newsletter and I alerted EVERYONE that this woman was a con artist in my opinion and that I had been played. I also broke all official ties to her and announced I was starting our own separate group from SWA which was Trafficking and Prostitution Services since I wasn't going to be on the board of NCAST. 


Oh and one other thing - I got a call from some people who ask me if I got my check. I was like "what check?"  These people then told me they had given Melissa what added up to $180,000 in donations for OUR work to Melissa. I called a woman who was interning with Melissa who confirmed the checks had been cashed . Then I confronted Melissa and at first she says "yes I got it but we need to raise more before we can open anything". 

Now I had just had my outreach car trashed because of what she had told the reporters from that conference and I'm getting calls on the hotline from women needing help NOW. I'm getting now help at all from ATLAS or anyone for that matter and I need to replace our outreach car. So I pushed on her to help me replace the car or rent something or something - and she then goes "money what money?" That was the last straw and that's when I put out the alert to EVERYONE not to trust this bitch. 

So guess what? We are loyal to each other and the whole industry turned their back on Melissa. Only she was doing what she CLAIMED to be a report on sex trafficking on an Indian reservation.   She's up a creek without a paddle because she's not going to get these women to talk to her if word is out on the street she can't be trusted.  I bring this up because I'm showing that back in 2007 the sex worker community was tight, loyal, and we had our "systems" of communication working so that when the word went out about Melissa - everyone was able to rally the wagons together and block her out of any access.  I'm also talking about the groups and systems we had been using to do this such as SWOP and the Tits N Sass blog.  


This is why Stella Marr got invented and started bashing me.  Melissa had to have an excuse to cover her backside about why we suddenly weren't speaking to each other after she'd just done this report and press conference where she'd come to me because I was "the gold standard" to get her State Dept. report done on trafficking in Nevada but now we're not speaking.  She can't say these lies from her or she gets sued for defamation.  


She so makes up an imaginary person who says them.   Then she builds up her little "Survivors Connect" group to get some real survivors on her side, so she can get her report done on the native reservation.  Only she's telling these women the same thing to get their trust - she's "on the side" and that this report is to "fight sex trafficking".  

Well if that's the case - then how did not only her market research on the "buying habits of native American "johns" and native American porn consumers get into the hands of Google and Facebook so they could write their algorithm's?    No one else was doing a report on the reservation on this subject to get those women to open up BUT  Melissa Farley.  I doubt that company stole the report anymore than I believe Shared Hope stole our report we did together.  I believe Melissa sold them her research. 


That woman LIED TO ME to gain my trust and then sold the information I had to the "other side" is what she did.  I say that because I started noticing that the traffickers were knowing our "systems".  They knew our people.  They knew every little "trick" of the book we used.  I couldn't figure this out for a while - I mean it was like they had someone on the inside of our group to know this stuff.  As I started seeing how these traffickers now knew everything it seemed about how we did rescues, I realized the only "outsider" who we'd allow to know this stuff was Melissa.  So I realized in my opinion she's like a "double agent" for the industry.
 

How do I know "Stella" was bashing us in her "Survivors Connect" group or Facebook had the research on native American buyers of sexual services by the way?  Because I'm also on "insider" news groups.  I'm seeing the beta testing roll out for a new app Facebook wants to roll out.  You can type in your address and get the nearest brothel, strip club, escort service, strippers to your door, or pick out porn to watch.  All right through Facebook.  I'm also seeing them reference their "report on native American buyers" and such.  The ONLY person who was on the reservation getting information as to what and how men purchase sex and pornography was MELISSA FARLEY.  The first site to publish Stella's essays was Melissa Farley.  

As I start seeing all of our "systems" to get victims out away and to help now "known" by the traffickers - I'm thinking they must be spying on me at first.  But then there was still stuff they couldn't know by surveillence.  Then I realized - there was only ONE person I had shown everything to about how we operate.  And that ONE person had also been talking to Dennis Hof.   I didn't even quite put that together until I realized that if I told Dennis Hof I was going to come up there and write a report on his place with her reputation - he wouldn't let me or her inside for a second.  But she got in . . . Hmmm. . . .  That's when I pieced it together.

All wars have double agents.  

Shortly after this press conference, Chong was charged with conning some lady in Texas out of $10,000 is what I heard.  She had called me after that with the nerve to ask me for help to pay her attorney!  I refused and I understand that Melissa helped her out - but in the process also got these people together to get "Eden" filmed.  A complete fabrication in my opinion.  If she had been in a Nevada brothel in the 1990's - I would have seen or heard about it. 


Basically no one else was buying Chong's story either.  So next thing we know this "Stella Marr" pops up.  It's like when she couldn't get me to say what she wanted - she was finding other ways to make it appear "we" felt this way.  A complete "catfish" (very well done though) where she's claiming to be a survivor and she starts this group called "Survivors Connect".  Only problem was not long after she starts this group - more and more survivors start coming to me telling me it's a complete sham.  They say that the only thing happening is that they're having their brains picked for research, and my name and our programs' being bashed.  So she was getting survivors to join her group at first - but then with time they were coming to me talking about what was going on and also apologizing to me.  


These women even start sending me screen shots of the bashing.  What's worse is that it was made clear to them if they didn't join in and didn't bash me or our group that they'd be "shunned".  So when they refused to attack us, and many even defended us, they were also being blocked from the group.   Meaning they could see this was about an "agenda" and that's why they were coming to me with the screen shots and apologies to let me know what was going on.


Now why would a group exist whose only purpose was to gather information on their stories and to try and twist people up against us?  Well that question got not only my attention but a few other people's attention in SWOP and the Desiree Alliance.  So some people went to work with private investigators - and lo and behold - Stella Marr wasn't a real person.  Now this person tried to cover by saying "Stella Marr was a pen name".  Only problem with that story was this - everything went back to Melissa Farley.  It was her writing style.  It was her IP address.  Everything Stella Marr was pushing out from coming out of Melissa Farley's computer. 


But ALSO showing the POWER that we had by WORKING TOGETHER.  

I suggest to follow this trail you catch a few documentaries or films to keep up with these plot twists.  The first one is "Hot Toxic Seat" on HBO.  It's about how the flame retardant chemical industry sets up fake groups and fake activists and "influencers" so they can maintain control over forcing our country to buy and use their chemicals.  I swear when I was watching it - I was seeing step by step the "hijacking" of this field.   Through Melissa, they were able to see the power of our network.  Which once they did - they set about in motion a plan to destroy that network and hijack the movement out from under us.


Prior to 2007 - this movement had been about helping sex workers, by sex workers, for sex workers, using sex workers as resources - both active and "ex" as well as survivors.  All were working together as a network in other words.  Our power was shown clearly in how fast we were able to learn "Stella Marr" was a complete fraud, and to shut her down.  Traffickers knew to win over us - this network we'd created among ourselves had to be shut down, interrupted, and also hijacked out from under us.  This is when you can see the plan starting to get traction to do just that.  

Because that's exactly what was going on.  Even the author of the Trafficking Act of 2000 has said the movement has been "hijacked".  So I'm not unique in watching what's happened to this field.  I'll tell you why it's important you wise up and get hip to this also because of what's going on here. 


This "Stella Marr" was getting as many survivors not only as she could on her mailing list, but also twisted up against our program and me.  Why?  I didn't know for a while.  But I do know this.  I hit Melissa Farley with a "cease and desist" by threatening to sue for defamation if she didn't take down those horrible lies about me she was posting on the Survivors Connect newsgroup.  She was saying that I was a "pimp" because I got busted for it in 1984.  I was busted for it because a real pimp had dropped a dime on the safe house CLAIMING I was "running a brothel".  I wasn't and that's why I was cleared of those charges.  That warehouse was a safe house NOT a brothel.  So I could win a lawsuit for defamation for her saying I was a "pimp".  I was trained as a pimp by pimps - but I never was one.  But since everything she was saying about me on there was a lie - I hit her with the notice to "cease and desist" or I'd sue.


Within 30 minutes - the whole website and group was dismantled and gone.  Poof!
I wondered what her next move would be and it was Samoly Mam.  Realizing they couldn't accomplish the "hijacking" using a fake person - they had to get a "real" person to speak their agenda for them who could appear to be one of us.   Mam's talked about this in her interviews that Melissa Farley and Nicholas Kristof approached her shortly after Stella and Chong were exposed saying that if she would say she was a trafficking  victim and basically tell the story they wanted her to tell them - they would get her all this press and money.  Which they did.


It's called an "influencer" in propaganda terms.    But no sooner had she been exposed - then other "fake" survivors and even "rescuers" were exposed.  William Hillar is another example.  He was the guy they based "Taken" on.  Only he went to jail for fraud also because it's a crime to impersonate a veteran to raise money.

But we're only getting started here.  Robin Few died in 2012 who had founded SWOP right?  Back in 2014, I get this call from someone telling me about a "Kevin Brown".  He starts telling me this guy "used to be a cop and now he's found God and he's set up a rescue for prostitutes".  Only I've been working with Orange County cops since 1987 and in my experience they aren't too nice to us - so I'm wondering how could he go from what cops are usually like to us and then suddenly after he's retired he's had this whole about face?  I wasn't buying it.  But he goes on to tell me he's got this "place in the desert where he's been taking women to help them escape sex trafficking". 

 
I asked him straight up "how are you getting them to the hotel room?" and "how are you dealing with the retaliation?"  I mean if he's doing a Sunday service like this guy is telling me and running off with victims then why hasn't he been shot yet?  It's not making sense to me.  So I said I wanted to see this operation with my own eyes.  Next thing I know this guy is gone - disappeared - poof!


I then do my homework and his story further wasn't jivving.  First of all, he said he "found God two years after he retired from being a cop".  That was in 2012 according to the story line.  Only he had registered his church with the state of California in 1994.  This was before sex trafficking even had federal recognition.  So it really wasn't matching up.  I don't think much about it until in May of 2015 I get a phone call from a woman claiming she was a woman who was filmed on the show "8 Minutes". 


She starts telling me this story and asking me for help.  I agreed to help her.   For one, she claimed she was being evicted in 48 hours and needed help with her papers.  No problem.  I told her to send me the complaint over and I'd file an answer for her first thing in the morning.  Only the complaint never came.  What did come was a rash of frantic calls from all these attorney's.  Only she had told me she didn't have any attorney's.  So something is fishy here. 


One thing was clear though - she said the show had been faked and scripted.  But then these attorney's start telling me that I can't "tell anyone that".  Like who am I going to tell?  But that got my suspicions up.  Why is everyone so scared what I'm going to say about whether this show is "real" or not?  I mean everyone knows most of it is faked anyway so what's the big deal?  Well I found out what the big deal was.  After a LOT and I mean A LOT of homework - I find out the show was being used for a lot of purposes as to why they wanted people to believe it was true.


Then I'm HORRIFIED to see they take Heidi with less than 30 days clean, and they put her into a room with Tom Sizemore, who also has less than 30 days clean and he's bipolar.  Then they leave them alone to "box it out".  I  felt like I was watching a staged dog fight.  I couldn't believe what I was seeing they did to her.  He starts laying this head trip on her and blah blah blah and I don't blame her ONE BIT for storming out of there. 


Only guess what?  THEY LET HER DRIVE.  In that emotional of a state they let her drive not just home to Los Angeles - but back to Pahrump?  Her home was a five to six hour drive from Los Angeles.  She was in no state to make that drive.  So no shock when she has a crack up and almost DIES. 


I then go and I pull out every tape of the Dr. Drew shows.  I make a list of each sex worker he's had on the show like Heidi, Mary Carey, etc.  I then go and check up on them and NOT ONE WAS CLEAN.  More than not clean - they were still in sex work!  I don't call that very good statistics.  ESPECIALLY since I'd offered to come in and do an inservice training with his staff to show them how "we" have to have a different kind of program to get us better.  In fact, I call that "negligent". 


So I had filed a complaint with the California Medical Board that gives out the licensing to Dr. Drew's center.  They investigated and held him responsible in the deaths of two people.  Now to cover up his reputation he blamed the addicts for the five deaths under his care saying it was "not his fault".  No but it is "negligent" when you have an expert in the field such as myself saying you need specializing training and when you refuse that training, again offered free and without any request for air time or credit, and then those clients fail.  So after going on the Dr. Oz show to build up his reputation again - he pretty much shifted off into being a TV host.  Oh and the by way - his license and training wasn't as an addictions doctor.  He's a trained INTERNIST. 


Okay I bring up Dr. Drew for two reasons.  First of all, Relativity Media who filmed "8 Minutes" also films "Intervention".  So what was being "8 Minutes" I uncovered was their plans to after the series aired - Dr. Drew had teamed up with Kathryn Griffin-Townsend in Texas and they were going to be launching a series of treatment centers for prostitutes after the show.  I know this because I traced the IP activity to find a website being constructed which was being set up to do just that - to announce centers promoted by Dr. Drew run by Kathryn as their program director.  


SO THAT'S why they were so interested for one reason in not having the show exposed as scripted and fake.  Can't use it as an inphomercial for a string of centers Dr. Drew's promoting if they're all "fake" now can they?  


The other was the INVESTORS.  Seems they were suing Relativity Media for being lied to about the show.  Why am I going into this?  Because I had goons sitting out in front of my house for three days trying to intimidate me into silence for one.  I've getting threats by phone and email to "keep my mouth shut" while staring at these guys sitting at the end of my drive watching me over the weekend like they're on a stake-out.  

As this is happening with Melissa - I start seeing the same names coming up over and over again of the women referred to as the "pimp" lobby.  I start seeing all this money flooding into SWOP, Desiree Alliance, Red Umbrella project.  They're issuing "grants" to "have get togethers" and "recruit new members".  All in manners no sex worker would ever do.  But then I go on their list of their new board to see they're NOT sex or ex-sex workers at all.  I mean where's the money coming from?  Why are they trying so hard to establish who the sex workers are?  They're asking them to meet in public places where they can be recorded without a warrant.  The grants are asking for their social security numbers.  I mean I was literally watching the taking over of the industry by a well funded well organised campaign.  At the head of the charge - was the same names who have also been dubbed "the pimp lobby".

For another, this "pimp lobby" you're talking about couldn't come after me in person the way they've been coming after the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and other programs to help us.  So they had to come after me online.  This online attack starts coming after me nonstop around the clock.  The minute I would serve one person with a restraining order or a "cease and desist" threat to sue for defamation and harassment - then the second person would go into operation.  Then the third.  It was a wolf pack.


Now I'm not used to this.  I've been well loved within this community for a LONG time.  Sure enough my supporters start stepping up - including supporters from within SWOP because I've worked with these women for YEARS.  Only guess what? 


THEY TURN ON THEM. 


Okay something is wrong here.  Very wrong.  Why would someone who says they're part of a group they're representing TURN ON that group?  So someone who has worked with me and knows me steps up and says "hey wait a minute" and next thing they know they're being blocked?  I mean what's going on here? 


Then the cherry on the sundae - all of a sudden everything's changed.  I go to talk to the Tits N Sass moderators.  Only I find I'm blocked?  What?  I've been on their blog since they launched.  I go onto another IP address and go on their site and find EVERY SINGLE WORD with my name on it, from me, about us, everything's been SCRUBBED. 


Okay now really - why would a blog that's supposed to be for and by sex workers, ex-sex workers, and about the sex industry - WHY would they censor the blog like that?  Look I remember when the thing with Melissa Farley and the press conference went down - we hashed it out in that group.   I would understand an "attack" even.  But this has been wiped to make it appear our program and myself don't exist.  


The same when we found out Stella Marr was a fake person.  We were talking and hashing all of that out online.  So all of us in this community have been airing our stuff on that blog for YEARS and suddenly I'm just wiped clean like I don't exist and blocked? 


Then I asked members of SWA to do the same - to go onto the Tits  N Sass site  - and THEY'RE blocked.  Not just from there either - but from SWOP  groups also.  I start getting the calls - members of SWA are reporting to me THEY'RE BEING STALKED and attacked and also blocked from groups such as SWOP, Desiree Alliance and Red Umbrella.  So this wasn't just about me at all.  Not when every member of SWA is being attacked and shunned.  Not when people in their own groups stand up for me and THEY'RE blocked?


Then I start hearing from others who are members in these groups such as SWOP telling me they've been threatened into not even speaking to us.   Now people who are claiming to "represent" a group of people don't turn on those same people and shun them, silence them, threaten them, etc. 


No honey - this was a TAKE OVER. 


Here's an example - check out the Salvation Army where these same people have whipped up a protest attack on their luncheons and notice how it's always the same names doing these organizings:


http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2016/05/19/salvation-army-pulls-donation-campaign-over-depiction-sex-workers


Here the Seattle chapter leader got up and claimed that "each of these women were operating independently and not trafficked". http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alison-bass/were-sex-workers-caught-u_b_9093678.html


Whoa Nelly!!!  This really alerted me more about WHY these women were taking over power in SWOP.  Because any REAL prostitute knows what's wrong with this.  First of all, by saying these women were NOT "being trafficked" that makes them GUILTY of illegal prostitution. 


Now why would she nail her friends like that to the wall?  We all know if we get in a pinch - we can turn around and say "the pimp made me do it" and we get off.  Now some of these women could have children, or work other jobs, or be in school.  I mean why would she hang her sisters out to dry on a prostitution charge like that?  Made no sense.  It's just something someone who is a REAL sex worker would NEVER DO - I mean talk to a cop AND a reporter like that with an open case and point the finger at these women like that?  Remove their back door excuse?  Oh hell no.  I mean who the hell is this woman?  I've never heard of her.  I'm sorry but these are "catfish" days and anyone can call themselves a hooker.  


That's when I turned back over to SWOP and re-examined their Board of Directors.  I mean why would they let her do this?  Certainly they knew better.  Only I was wrong.  Before Robin died - the board was ALWAYS 80 % sex workers.  I'm on their site now and I'm seeing "professor, professor, professor" and the list is going on and I find TWO sex workers?  I do more digging and on top of that - almost every single one of the people on the SWOP board was doing a RESEARCH PROJECT  and applying for GRANTS.  This was NOT the SWOP I'd known.  I was right - it was not even a majority of sex workers on the board.  


I mean Savannah Sly?  In her 20's?  Excuse me but what the fuck does she know about being arrested for prostitution and having the courts threaten to take all of your property, arrest your husband, put your kids in a foster home, yada yada yada.  What does she know about trying to work to keep your rent paid when a serial killer is hacking up your girlfriends one by one and the police hang up the phone on you?  I'm sorry but she was picked because she was young and pretty.  

This is a front.  SWOP"s been taken over like "Invasion of the Body Snatchers".  And this pipsqueak poser talking to the cops and reporters and saying "oh no they weren't trafficked" was bullshit.  I smelled someone covering their ass and it wasn't the sex workers.  

Something isn't right here.  I mean I've  been working on this sex trafficking case involving the Triad since 2013.  I know good and well that website was theirs. I saw them set the damn thing up.  I know who was behind it and I know for a fact those women WERE trafficked because many of them were either coming to me or our local chapters for help and we were having to battle these people.  


I know because I had alerted the airport security these women were being imported in from China so they could try and stop them there but the ring solved that problem by shifting from Chinese women to Korean women.  In fact, Joohoon David Lee was PERSONALLY flying these women over to this country and then walking them right past airport security.   Even his boss knew it who had told the restaurant owner in Las Vegas there was "nothing he could do to stop him".  


That's why I filed the complaint with the Office of Professional Responsibility.  I mean who else do you go to when you can't go to the Chief of Police, Internal Affairs, the prosecutor's office, the Attorney General's office, Homeland Security, ICE, the trafficking department or even the Dept. of Transportation?  Who's left?

You know what that so called "sex worker" in Seattle reminded me of exactly?  When Marilyn Chambers got up and called Linda Lovelace a liar.  Now notice Chuck didn't call Linda a liar.  The producers didn't call Linda a liar.  No - these guys had a WOMAN who they had hooked on drugs and was also threatening stand up and claim Linda was a liar.   That's when it clicked.  That's why I wrote the blog post about the "Bottom Bitch".  Because pimps NEVER defend THEMSELVES.  They always get another bitch to do it for them.  


Big Tobacco does it.  They used to pay for research that said their product wasn't "harmful" nor was it "addictive". 


The brothels do it.  I watched Joe Conforte go out and pay for a so called "research study on HIV" that he rigged to fail. 


So why wouldn't these guys get someone in SWOP to stand up and say "these women weren't trafficked"?  Also, why wouldn't they hire someone like Maxine Doogan to do it for them?  What's she get out of it?  How about her pimping conviction overturned?  Go on - check it out.  Then tell me WHO gets a pimping conviction OVERTURNED?  Not unless they got someone in their pocket or by the balls does that happen I'm sorry.  


I contacted the Seattle SWOP again and I asked to speak to these women myself and let them tell me they "weren't trafficked".  


She blocked me and blew me off.  Now again, this was not the relationship I've had with SWOP for YEARS NOW.   In the past, if there was even a hint someone might be in trouble - they were all over it trying to help.  But that was before most of the board wasn't sex workers and their president is a spokes model.  


I then went over each and every press article - the same names over and over and over again. 


Then the attacks on us got worse.  You know how they had these faked videotapes they used with Planned Parenthood?  Well these calls start coming in from people trying to find out where our meetings are.  One woman kept calling me pretending to be someone else each time asking me where our local members were trying to get at them.  I recognized her voice.  I then went and got this tape where Maxine was supposedly talking to "Kamylla" who was supposedly on "8 MInutes". 


They matched.


So now why would this woman be calling up trying to fake her way into one of our local groups to get at our members?  Now by this time I've already advised our members to not mention anything about SWA in their social media.  I don't have any "friended".  I don't talk to them except through an anonymizer so our IP address can't be traced.  But why would these women be trying to get into our groups so badly?


That wasn't enough - they start calling up with these attacks on the hotline.  One time for three days they kept calling to tie the line up.  I got the police involved and they backed up. 


I mean what in the hell is going on? 


It's not making sense.


Let's say you're a maid.  Now let's say you know maids are sex trafficked or forced to work as maids.  It happens.  In this country, they can call the police and they can go into a homeless or domestic violence shelter.  If they got hooked on drugs - they can go into treatment. 


Now - why would a maid want to go out and destroy those options for others even if she didn't need those options?  Even if she had the greatest maid job in the world - why would she try and trash all programs for maids? 


She wouldn't.


My sponsor told me to "follow the money". 


I did.


Would you like to know where the money all traced back to?


Amazon.  They're rolling out "Alexa".  Now, imagine if you're customizing this with your favorite porn star.


Google (who also donated $11 million dollars to Polaris I need to add here).  They're rolling out "Oculus" - a 3D interactive porn thing.


Microsoft - search engines taking over for the sites they got taken down.  

I got real suspicious about that after I got a call from one of our chapters after "Redbook" got taken down.  Seems they went to go talk to the FBI Dept. who was responsible for the arrest.  Seems they DON'T EXIST.  I double checked on the information and it's true.  

Also, the traffickers I'm dealing with are very good at hacking into your computer, getting into your emails, following your online activity, etc.  All things which would require an "insider" at just these companies to do.

But think about it - if you're a "john" and you want action and you just go to Redbook, Rentboy, Erotic Review, etc., then two things aren't happening.  One is you're not using the search engines.  Search engines means ads and clicks right?  The other thing you're not doing is using a different app like the one Facebook is rolling out.  I mean I literally was typing in my zip code and "escort service" and WHAM!  Now I'm sure that's not cheap to make that happen.  


So yeah the money also is going to Facebook.


Sheldon Adelson  (spent $100 million dollars trying to shut down Obama who has been the first president trying to help sex trafficking victims).  It's well known among his people he's trying to get prostitution legalized within the USA and also that he hates unions and Obama.  So while he's also trying to convince America to legalize prostitution - he's also going to make sure the workers don't "unionize".  


By the way, I called up some people in California who work with "union busting".  I then listened to a whole podcast about it.  Seems if you're an employer and you don't want your company to go union - you hire these "influencers".  They then get hired to work at your company and they pretend to be an employee.  They "befriend" everyone in your company and then set about explaining why they don't want to be a "union".  They're always attractive, warm friendly people.  Many of them have a record of starting up a relationship with someone in the company also who holds a lot of influence.  This way people HAVE to talk to them.  Sounding more and more like the "pimp lobby" to me.  


I kept "following the money" and it started going also to Dennis Hof and Lance Gilman


Vivid Entertainment.  Seems they partnered with a sports betting service in Nevada and an insurance company.  

NFL - (watch the film "Concussion" and then you'll have a better idea why that is.)


Hunt Foundation


Here's the real kicker - Domina Elle, a mistress (or so she makes it appear) who partners in this wolf pack or "pimp lobby" with Maxine Doogan, Bella Robinson, Christina Parriera, Norma Jean Almodovar, and so on - is constructing a website for "end demand".   Seems Melissa Farley isn't the only "double agent" in this field!


Boy that blows your mind.


She was also raising money and support to fight Backpage.


What?


Take a real good look at the Oakland sex scandal - you'll notice that the same cop who was out there doing the "end demand" campaign was also INVOLVED in sex trafficking.  The news further said the "victim was working with Nancy O'Malley" who has blocked us out of this stuff from day one and still is.  But guess what?  The victim is STILL hooking - catch the date on this screen shot. 




If you look at the Oakland scandal - what do you see?  You see the very men guilty of this are the ones in control over the so called "anti-trafficking efforts" AS WELL AS WE'RE SHUT OUT.  Now since when do you cut Sex Workers Anonymous OUT of an anti-trafficking operation and to help women out of the biz?  


When you're not.  


I've "followed the money".  I've done the interviews.  I've done the property searches.  I've indexed all the news articles.


Welcome to one of the biggest shams in our history.  What we are witnessing is a war almost identical to the same war Al Capone waged when he wanted to take over the distribution of alcohol during Prohibition.


The women are "influencers".  Amazon, and many other companies have already been busted for hiring "influencers" to talk people online into buying products.

Have you seen the ads where you can "rent out your Facebook page? on Craigslist?  They are "renting" out private citizen's Facebook accounts, and then organizing what appears to be a lot of people "agreeing" with them when in fact it's all being staged and contrived.


This is how they make it APPEAR a bunch of people are "agreeing with them" and that they are bigger than they really are.  It's organized cyber-bullying using "catfish" methods.


I didn't fully understand the whole scope of the matter until I uncovered proof on two counts - the first that the lawsuits against Backpage are being staged and faked.  Now I'm not saying the cases aren't real.  Hear me out.  But there is sex trafficking going on with MANY sites.  I've got calls about sex trafficking on Snapchat, Instagram, Ashley Madison, etc.  So I'm talking about the FOCUS is what's being handfed to the press so the FOCUS stays on Backpage.  

Now why would anyone PAY someone to "pretend" to be attacking Backpage?  Why would the pages and groups set up online to appear to be attacking Backpage be paid for BY Backpage? 


Think about this if you want the answer to that - think about if you wanted to put up an ad for sex for money online who do you think of first to do such a thing?  

Backpage.  

It's great publicity to sell their product.  Since the owner also runs prostitution in Amsterdam - then it also allows him a "pool" of women he could tap into who he would have a good idea wouldn't be undercover police also wouldn't it?

The second thing was the attacks against Kathryn Griffin-Townsend.  Why would anyone create a completely false attack against her like Maxine was staging also?


Where it got interesting was I go trotting off to both Backpage and Kathryn thinking they're going to want to look at this evidence these cases are being faked against them.  


ONLY THEY WEREN'T.


Strange.


But Maxine leads a lot of "campaigns" where she gets publicity for things using "opposition".  
I then notice the opposition against the film "50 Shades of Gray" was also staged by the same people!!!  Maxine's names all over that.  So is SWOP.  Now did you know the most ticket sales for that film were in the same cities where the protests were?


In other words, "opposition" equals "attention" equals "sales".  


I dig back into the past with big tobacco.  Did you know they used to send out these "youth prevention campaigns" that were supposed to be about stopping our youth from smoking - but in reality it was actually marketing the products to kids?  The statistics showed everywhere they went - sales to kids went up.


Why?


Fastest way to make someone want something is tell them it's "forbidden" or they "can't have it".


Want to get a crowd going?  Start a fight.

What I found was that before the show "8 Minutes" blew up, and before Dr. Drew decided to step down from doing addiction and counseling work directly, there was a website I found that had been under construction where they were going to launch a whole series of programs for prostitutes together.  Now it's making sense.  The "fake" protests against Kathryn was to get publicity for the centers they were opening - or planning to before I got in the way.  


Now these attacks upon groups such as myself, the Salvation Army, and any "rescue" group that helps someone leave the sex industry is REAL.


Guess why.


Guess who.


And notice NOT ONE of these so called "advocates" is talking about "unionizing" sex workers? 

Jenna Jameson brought it up.  She started talking about sex workers needed to unionize.  Haven't heard one interview out of her since.


Sheldon Adelson HATES unions.

Watch the chess game in Nevada because the REAL "pimp lobby" is preparing to legalize prostitution in this country.  They've bought Catherine Cortez Masto and our members witnessed her getting the check from Dennis Hof.  John Hambrick has "bullied" his way into the Speaker of the House position not just in my book, but the senators also report he has done this.  He did nothing but put on absolute bullshit about sex trafficking in other countries during the AB67 hearings while blocking us from saying ONE WORD about NEVADA sex trafficking.  I mean Congo Justice was headed up by the same guy who was President of the Nigerian Association and according to them - he ran off with $26,000 of their money?  They received a grant to hold a meeting in October about sex trafficking in Las Vegas that STILL hasn't been held.


Dennis Hof is running for Senate. Kamala Harris is running for Senate after witch hunting Mitchell Stein into prison after he represented homeowners who had their homes stolen by the banks.  There's accusations she burned homeowners' evidence which cost them their homes and she's taken money from both Bank of America and Wells Fargo.  Nancy O'Malley has done nothing but cover for the cops in Oakland who are involved not just in sleeping with that young girl for money but TRAFFICKING  and it's been documented.


Christina Parriera has personally directly literally threatened to "come over to my house and kick my ass" when she thought I was living 10 minutes from her.  Her husband is doing the dirty work for Dennis Hof.  Mike Whiteacre not only has a history of domestic violence against her - where the dates correlate between dates of her attacking us also by the way - but he's gone after every single rescue operation there is.  The ONLY exception was me.  So to try and make it appear he's NOT coming after me also so he can claim one exception - he's got Christina doing it for him (or he's pretending it's her online to do it one or the other), and he's been trying to do it "anonymously".  Only IP addresses don't lie.


He's gone after each and every one THAT DOES REAL WORK I'd like to add.  If your program actually does REAL WORK then they're coming after you.  I know I've placed victims we've been helping with the Salvation Army or Catholic Charities FOR YEARS.  That's been our "go to" in emergencies FOR YEARS.


So you pull that out from under us and then what?


Which is why they've also staged FIGHTS too.


I've been getting these calls for example claiming to be from people "confessing" to me that "Shelley Lubben" or "Annie Lombert" or other women in this field have said this or that against me, or done this or that against our program, etc.


I've got the calls that "Rachel Moran was a fraud".  That she "did this" or "did that" against us and yada yada yada.


Now granted - I fell for it on the first bite. But I did further investigation to learn these same people who were calling me "confessing" they had "attacked me because so and so put me up to it", I learned they were also "catfish" people.  I had to ask myself why would anyone do this and the only answer is to CREATE DIVISION and to stop us from talking to each other.  Divide and conquer.

I really knew this was what was up after I'm finding MYSELF imitated.

I had a woman call me up and claim I had cussed her out at some conference in Chicago.  Only I've 
never been to Chicago in my life.  She insisted this woman said she was "Jody Williams".  Now why would someone say they were me and go and cuss this woman out?  Couldn't be to spread rumors that I'm someone who would cuss someone out now would it?


Probably the same reason why Beth Jacobs is running around telling people that I'm "a pimp" and "I'm running an escort service".  So I do some digging and guess what I find?  I find an ESCORT SERVICE claiming to be run by me online is what I find.  Now who put that there to make it look like I am running a service when I'm not?

The other thing that didn't click was how would she KNOW?  So I went to confront her on that point.  
THAT'S HOW THEY OPERATE.


These people REGULARLY use "influencers".


Domina Elle runs an art studio in Denver, Colorado called the "Red Hand".  She received a grant from the Hunt Foundation through the Denver Arts Council.  She also travels under the name of a woman who DIED.  So she's either in witness protection, a snitch, a spy, etc.  

She's also set up a website for "end demand" as well as the people who are attacking Backpage!  Now why would she do that if she is what she says she is?  


So I ran a "test".  I accused her of NOT being a sex worker.  An ad goes up on Backpage.  I accuse her again.  Another ad goes up on Backpage.  However, I drop the accusations and her ads drop off Backpage.  In other words, what sex worker only advertises when she's being accused of not being a sex worker?  

And why would another sex worker file a complaint against Domina Elle for "imitating" her?  If you put it all together it becomes pretty clear she's someone acting like one while working both sides of the fence, and then being a part of this "pimp lobby" trying to shut down anyone who is helping sex workers, or trafficking victims, find a way out.  All doors out is what they're after closing and to get anyone in the exit field fighting with each other and not talking to each other.  

The whole thing isn't what it appears.  These women are NOT spokes women for REAL people in the sex industry.  This is a contrived lobby whose end goal to shut down any doors out of the sex industry, as well as to lead the opinion of the industry, while trying to silence any discussion of a union, and to try and lead the industry into Nevada, a state they "own" total control over as we've seen with what they did to Lamar.  Anyone who differs with their opinions is shut down and shunned.  If that doesn't work - they outright attack them.  

I've been putting together a book with all of the documentation, charts, screenshots, etc., to show what's been going on with these people and expose the truth about this manipulation.   I should have it done soon.  If you'd like a free copy, just subscribe to the blog.
