NOT ALL SEX WORKERS ARE ALIKE

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-henry-sterry/everything-you-think-you-_1_b_9772910.html

Well it's about time SOMEONE comes forward and backs up the reality of the case of domestic sex trafficking in juveniles - and that's there is no "one" typical type of situation.  There can't be a "cookie cutter" solution because the problem  ISN'T.

Dear Lisa:

I don't know if you remember much about the tobacco industry and how they marketed their products - but for years they disguised a lot of their actions.  Sure they bought research which made it appear their product wasn't "addictive" nor "caused cancer".

But they also used to sponsor "youth prevention campaigns" which were supposed to be about kids not smoking, while in reality cleverly designed to INCREASE the number of kids smoking.  They couldn't roll out ads targeting kids - so instead they "forbid" them which anyone in Psychology 101 is the fastest way to make a kid want something!

The same tactics are at work in the sex industry today.  Many groups are not what they appear to be - and you can't always tell without "following the money" as well as who is leading these groups.

The men who want prostitution legalized so they can control it have set up a lot of "catfish" groups to try and stop countries from decriminalizing it.  I should know as I've been fighting these guys back in Nevada since the 1980's.  

If you'd like to talk more about it - I've been doing this work for 30 years now.  I'd love to weigh in on the issues.  I have clips up at www.hightechmadam.com.  Thanks!

2017 State of American Sex Trafficking Handbook

Sex Workers Anonymous (formerly Prostitutes Anonymous)
(702) 488-1127 Direct and (888) 666-1782 Toll Free


Hello:

I’m writing you to set up an interview for inclusion in a report being prepared for 2017 as a handbook on the issue of sex trafficking in America.  As you know, we’re about to have a new President.  Once they’re sworn in, then many new people will be taking office as well.  People who will need a reference guide on this subject. 

Up to this point in time, most reports on this issue have been prepared by “non-survivors”. 
Bradley Myles, the CEO for Polaris, and Linda Smith, President for Shared Hope, are two fine people running wonderful organizations who have prepared reports on this subject.  However, they’re not survivors of this issue personally.  Nor is Savannah Sly, Director of Sex Workers Outreach Project, even though she is an active sex worker by her account. 

Polaris and Shared Hope receive federal grant money, as well as enjoy a large amount of political support.  The Salvation Army and Catholic Charities are two organizations addressing this issue who are Christian “faith based” groups.  SWOP is also fund raising as well as lobbying for political position while also trying to change our laws to suit their agenda.  Some groups even have lobbyists such as the Nevada Brothel Owners Association, while others have paid “influencers” at work daily on social media.  Thus reports from these could potentially be biased. 

However, we’re a 12 Step program.  I as the founder am a survivor who has been in recovery since 1985.  As such, we do not receive federal grants, hold any fund raisers nor do we “accept outside donations”.  We also don’t run for political office, nor do we hold any job within this industry.  Therefore, we feel a report on the general state of affairs with respect to the issue of sex trafficking in America to be presented to those coming into office in 2017 is going to be invaluable as well as uniquely insightful.   Especially since it’s being written by someone who has been in this field over a period of 30 years, worked with victims in all 50 states as well as other countries, and someone whose hotline has answered over 500,000 calls as of 2015.

The subjects this report will include the history of the field, a “Who’s Who” (going from Linda Smith, the President and Founder of Shared Hope to Michael Horowitz, the author of the Trafficking Act of 2000), an outline of related legislation in all 50 states, top campaigns (such as “Operation Cross Country”) as well as top scandals (including the Oakland sex scandal), a list of who has received what money from grants and fund raisers (to cover federal and private donations), along with an index of people’s stance and view on this subject. 

Which is where I am requesting an interview with you.  Whereas I can go online and find out most politicians’ views on subjects such a global warning listed openly - I can’t find the same index of stance with respect to subjects such as “end demand” or the legalization and/or decriminalization of prostitution. 
So I’m requesting literally five minutes of your time to ask a few short questions which will then be included in this report.  Copies of the final report will be published online November 1, 2016, just in time for the election itself.  Then copies will be given to our new President taking office, the new Vice-President, the Supreme Court, the Senate and Congress both federally and state wide, as well as to each state’s Governor, Attorney General and US Attorney’s office.   Major  media outlets such as the Huffington Post, CNN, NBC, LA Times, NY Post, will also be receiving a copy of this report. 

Please therefore email me back with a date, time, and phone number, where I might reach you for this interview anytime between now and October 10, 2016.  This can be any day of the week during any time frame of 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Please include your email address so that I can send you back a confirmation on this date.  You can send your information to me here:

Fax # (702) 472-8745

With your permission, I’d like to record the interview.  This way the online version of the report can have links to your views in your words so you don’t have to worry about anything being taken out of context, misunderstood, etc.   I can do this via skype or just phone recording.  However, if you prefer not to, that’s fine also.  The important thing is to just get your views noted for this historic report. 

What’s also record making about this project will be your consent to be interviewed by a survivor.  To date, I have found no report of this type prepared by a survivor led program, a survivor author/reporter, nor any interviews on the subject granted to a sex trafficking survivor.   An analogy would be if politicians had only granted interviews on womens’ rights to male reporters, male lead groups, and media owned by men.  

If you’re working on any upcoming projects, or if you have any events scheduled for 2017, or beyond, with respect to this subject, I’ll be happy to see if there’s some way we can make sure to include some reference to it in the report as well.   I’d like this report to be a “primer” or handbook for new people coming into office on the subject. 

We have no professional operator, nor answering service either as we have no budget.   While I welcome your call, please be advised because I answer our hotline until about 4:00 a.m. most days, and because I receive no pay or salary for any work I do in this field, the best time therefore to call me is any day after 3:00 p.m.  This is also why I’m asking you to please just email or fax me the time you’re available for interview, and I’ll confirm. 

Thank you very much for your time and attention on this matter.  I hope this is the opening of a long lasting dialogue in the future with your office. 

Sincerely,

Jody Williams, Director and Founder

COMBATING THE "PIMP LOBBY"

Hello:

I’m writing about women who have been dubbed the “pimp lobby”.  They include Maxine Doogan, Domina Elle, Bella Robison, Norma Jean Almodovar, Christina Parriera, Meg Munoz, Maggie McNeil, Tara Burns, Gaye Dalton, and Elizabeth Nolan Brown.   I might be missing a few names here.

First let me establish who is writing this letter.  My name is Jody Williams.  For years in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s - I saw there was no solutions for someone like myself, and others, who wanted help to leave any part of the sex industry for ANY reason.  Any reason including if you wanted to leave a pimp or escape a trafficking operation.  Calls to the police were futile because we were the ones considered the “criminals” for one.  For another, there weren’t the laws written to address our situation so without recognition of the problem – solutions didn’t exist yet for us either.   Back then there was no difference between our situation and someone saying they wanted help to “escape aliens abducting them for sexual purposes”.  We were treated identically back then - as simply making up imaginary stories.

I had been looking for solutions because I couldn’t find a way out of my own situation.  I was knee deep in what has now been titled “Iran Contra”.  Meaning I was dealing with low level street criminals and gangsters on one hand, while also dealing with men in levels of high power within our own government who were smuggling cocaine into this country to raise cash to buy guns for the Contra’s.  If you’ve seen the film “Cocaine Cowboys” then you have an idea what I was in the middle of.  I was also being used as a “go between” to get the drug from the pier to the Hollywood parties and into the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

This put me on the front row of witnessing women who were being pimped, sold, trafficked, etc. who also wanted out of their situation.  For this reason, I took an old warehouse I had once used as an illegal brothel and “adult theater” and converted it into what was the first “safe house” for adults.  In 1984, an angry pimp retaliated against us because of a woman we’d rescued by calling the police on me.  I was arrested for being a “pimp” but because I wasn’t doing this the charges were dropped.  This didn’t stop the authorities from taking all of my property, threatening to disbar my attorney, etc.  I also suddenly had a lot of people scared I would “talk” to the police – and many attempts were made on my life then.

However, in 1985 I met Marilyn Chambers.  After Linda Lovelace had escaped her husband slash pimp, Chuck Traynor, he had started “managing” Marilyn.  In reality, Marilyn had been promoted heavily in the adult industry not just for her porn performances, but also to deny Linda’s allegations of sex trafficking existing within the porn industry.  Marilyn had been put on drugs by Chuck, and because of her “notoriety” had no idea how to leave the adult industry.   Her face was clearly recognizable which led to serious discussions about how someone like her could leave the industry entirely, especially now she wanted to stay clean.  We both knew she couldn’t possibly stay clean while making adult films so I watched her progression as she tried not only to stay off drugs – but to further not do adult films.

I was with her as she struggled against making these films.  Rent had to be paid and who was going to hire Marilyn for work other than adult films?  She swore “never to do another adult film” but the industry wasn’t done with her.  Offers kept coming in with higher dollar amounts.  These pimps know well the “frog in hot water method” and assured they could put her in films where she’d be fully clothed.  This way she could pay her bills, make an adult film, but not take her clothes off.  You can see how she made a few films this way while “introducing” other women to do the sex scenes in the film.

So here she is still in the adult industry while not having sex for money, nor even taking her clothes off.  This was NOT “leading a spiritual life” as the 12 steps speak about are necessary for someone to live in order to stay off drugs if you’re an addict for any length of time.  Which is why sure enough – she started doing films after a while topless, then nude but no sex.  Then soon she was right back doing adult films and getting high.  In fact, when she died she had drugs in her system showing she was never able to stay clean for long because of her inability to leave the sex industry as a whole behind.

Watching this, I realized I had to do something still even if I never did put together another “safe house”.  After doing a lot of research, I launched the first hotline in this country for someone in the sex industry (prostitution, porn, stripping, etc.) to call for help to exit for ANY reason.  This included those who were being “forced”.  Please remember we didn’t have the term “sex trafficking” even coined back then so we made no “distinctions” as to WHY they wanted help.   We called ourselves “Prostitutes Anonymous” so those convicted on prostitution charges could have the judge order them to our program as an “alternative to incarceration”.  This was allowed under laws already in place for Alcoholics Anonymous.  This meant we also formed the first alternative sentencing program also.  Our hotline was promoted worldwide – and soon calls were coming in not just from the USA, not just from those involved in illegal prostitution, but from people all over the world engaged in various forms of the sex industry.

As of 2015, our hotline has now answered 500,000 more calls.  This means five times more calls than Polaris has answered.  We have chapters across the USA, as well as five other countries at the moment.  Our chapter in Russia for example is now up to six meetings a week.   The subscribers to our blog numbers at the moment at 90,000.  The contacts in our member database are showing up to be about 190,000 in number.  Our Facebook pages average at least 300 hits a day when you total all of them.  We have members who have been with us continuously since 1987.  A large number of “regulars” have been with us since 1991 – the year we published the first ever book written by ex-sex workers and survivors of sex trafficking, for us about exiting and recovering from this industry.   An “industry” it is being that it encompasses both legal and illegal types of activities which don’t always involve sex for money.

Meaning our program is the OLDEST, and the LARGEST, program of those having exited the industry, or simply having the “desire”.  Like Alcoholics Anonymous, we have members who haven’t fully left the industry yet.  As long as they have the “desire to exit” they’re welcome.  Also like AA, we have members who “relapse” back into the industry.  Meaning at any given moment in time, we have members who have been out of the industry for decades sitting next to those still active in the industry.  Since I answer our hotline personally daily – I’m constantly speaking to people still in some part of the sex industry.

I was a member of COYOTE before I left the industry fully.  This group, Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics, was founded by Margo St. James, another sex worker who was advocating for ALL women to be treated the same whether they were working as secretaries, living as housewives, or active in the sex industry.  I remained good friends with Margo when I launched this program and we in fact worked together during the 1980’s a lot.  Her group was out doing HIV/AIDS outreach and thus when she’d hear of someone wanting help or support to exit – we’d get a phone call immediately.  Her and I were good personal friends in my opinion before her retirement, and handing everyone off to St. James Infirmary.

When Norma Hotaling left the industry in 1989, our program was one of the first people she called.  I couldn’t reveal that while she was alive because we protect our members’ “anonymity”.   Our policy after my arrest in 1984 was to get our members into their own housing immediately.  Not to set up any type of stationary housing.  The reasoning with us was simple – those escaping pimps and/or traffickers needed to be moved around for safety so a stationary house was pointless as well as dangerous.

This is why I was dubbed the “High Tech Madam” when I was arrested – because of all of the security equipment I had installed in the place for protection.  For others, living off people had been our glass of wine to the alcoholic.  Therefore, we needed to start providing our own housing using a “legit” income in order to have any “time” in our program.  So we didn’t have any type of housing set up for members.  Norma wanted to set up a residential program and I provided her with materials and support to help her set up meetings of our program in hers.  I’d already been helping other residential programs for women who had been involved in prostitution to work on those issues by then with groups such as the Mary Magdalene Project, Genesis House, Tarzana Treatment Center, the Salvation Army, and others.

When Margo St. James retired, the group Sex Workers Outreach Project soon took it’s place founded by Robin Few.  They were doing a lot of outreach for harm reduction purposes, as well as lobbying to have sex workers get safer working conditions.   Phone calls started coming in from their chapters saying “we’ve got a woman here wanting to leave her pimp” or “we’ve got a trafficking ring operating we need help to get women out of”.   So we were getting a lot of calls from SWOP to come help when needed.

Calls weren’t just coming from them providing referrals.  I personally knew Dave who founded “The Erotic Review”.  This site was created by a “john” who would personally “audition” advertisers.  While the women would complain about having to sleep with the guy to get a listing – that was it’s “brand”.  He was providing “personal reviews” on providers.  Dave told me he was doing this so he could also ferret out any signs of someone being pimped and/or trafficked.  When he would uncover a situation where a woman was being forced to be in this line of work – we’d get a phone call from him about it.

Because I was in the industry myself for years, people within the industry trusted me with a call when they saw someone needing help or something “irregular”.  It was, and is, common for example to have strip club owners call me regularly when they would see a woman being pimped against her will.  Referrals don’t just come from within the sex industry either.  People in the industry routinely use cabs.  I work hard to establish a relationship with cab drivers, and routinely run ads in cab driver “trade” magazines in major cities.   So it’s not uncommon for me to have a cab driver showing up at my door with a woman who had gotten in their cab asking to get away from their pimp.

When the AIM Clinic was first opened to test adult performers for HIV/AIDS – they had a stack of our cards there for their counselors.  When someone would be diagnosed as “positive” – that puts them “out of business” on the spot.  It’s not an easy adjustment and performers would be routinely referred to our program for help.  In fact, many labs, as well as doctors who tend to specialize in sex workers, have a stack of our cards they hand out to someone when they see they’re going to need exit help.

Making us again not only the oldest, and largest, group providing exit help for sex workers, but also meaning that we’d had a long standing relationship working with other groups and professionals within the industry itself who have trusted us enough to provide referrals.  Over the years, we’ve had an independent professor conduct a 10 year study published in “Leaving Prostitution” by professor Sharon Oselin.  This study was done on a group I personally wasn’t even involved with so it was completely objective.  On top of this, we’ve had multiple, independent, reputable, investigative reporters come in and check us out thoroughly from an objective stance.  All of who wrote wonderful things about us.

So you can imagine after years of having these kinds of relationships, I would therefore find it truly “strange” to have the “tides turn” on us as they have lately.  Up until 2007, I had a friendship with Melissa Farley, PhD.  In fact, when she told me she needed my help to conduct a study for a report to the State Dept. on sex trafficking in Nevada – I opened up the books and gave her all of the help I could.   This report was published “Trafficking in Nevada – Making the Connections”.  Meaning when someone wanted to get information from a “reputable” program in the past – they came to us.  

The reason why I emphasize this is an INDUSTRY isn’t to “legitimize” it.  But because if you don’t think of it like THEY do – which IS an INDUSTRY  - then you can’t combat them is why we do.   Which is why it’s important to know that when any large industry is afraid of their workers “unionizing” they hire these “consultants” and “influencers”.  These firms who specialize in “union busting” usually start with the hiring of an “influencer”.  The standard practice is to hire an attractive person who then gets hired to work in the company not wanting the workers to go union like they’re a “regular” employee.  They then strike up friendships, even relationships, with other workers where they’re also there to steer private conversations away from the idea of unionizing.  Anyone who is even “leaning” towards unionizing is nipped in the bud before they can gather up any support in the company.

Corporate “espionage” is also very common.  It’s very common for companies like Pepsi to have someone working to feed them information at Coca-Cola.  Many large companies these days are now employing “influencers”.  Ads are run on Craigslist to “rent out” private people’s Facebook pages.  Then these fake people are put into groups to “stack” them.  Anyone then coming in with an opinion they don’t want to be popularized or spread is struck down by what appears to be a “majority” of the group.  In fact, I’ve seen whole groups where every person in it is actually one person controlling many identities.  Thus instead of a “disagreement” between two people – it appears to be one against the majority.  This is to make it appear someone’s viewed are “unpopular” or “not in the majority”.

Hollywood has been using the idea of an “attack” or even “threats” for publicity for ages.  Take a look at Emma Watson.  She was speaking at the UN when a threat was launched with a count down clock ticking even.  The press went crazy about this threat.  Only investigation into it proved it was her own marketing company making the threat.  Why would she essentially threaten herself?  Well ask yourself if you would have even heard of her speech if not for the threat?

Take a real good look at the advertising surrounding the film “50 Shades of Gray”.   If you carefully review the parties involved in organizing the opposition to the film, as well as the press, you see the very same people involved in not only this, but also in just about every single story online about the sex industry and trafficking.  The same names are appearing over and over again in fact.

Now maybe these people are speaking for “us”?  If that’s the case, then where’s our name?  I hate to be obvious but look back in the 1980’s and 90’s and you can see we’re the ones quoted in just about every article on the subject.  Not ME – but different members of our group presenting THEIR opinions.  Now you can look at ANY article on the subject and it’s the same names over and over again.  At the same time, anyone who has a different opinion than them are being not only shunned and silenced, but outright threatened, stalked, cyber-bulled, smeared, marginalized, and some people are reporting even actually harmed. I have been a long standing member of online SWOP groups as one example of what I mean.  I’ve also been a contributor to the blog “Tits N Sass” since they launched in 2007.  However, when what appears to be an organized campaign started up about 2013 to take over being to voice of the sex industry by a group of women – I found myself shut out of all of these groups for absolutely no reason other than these same women pushing the issue.  In fact, one SWOP blog moderator told me straight up she was dropping me because she had received physical threats from these women to do so.

Which I’ve seen being played out since Bob Herbert reported he was threatened with a “baseball bat to the head” for simply publishing an interview with me in the NY Post.  The reporter who reported he was threatened – was fired the week after the story ran.  I have now collected a long list of reporters, blog writers, group moderators, and publishers who have told me they can’t publish anything with my name on it “or else” they’ve been threatened in some fashion by this same group of women.  Reporters who have gone against the grain and published something with my name anyway – have in fact been immediately fired for their trouble.

Starting in 2013, our group also started becoming the subject of direct attacks.  The goal has been to not only break us up, scare off our members, shut down our meetings, but to further make it appear we don’t even exist.  Anyone who used to list us on their Facebook  they were a member of SWA, was reporting  they were being threatened.  If they refused to take down noting they belonged to SWA on their profiles, their pages were being subjected to false complaints and shut down for “violation of terms of service”.  Comments mentioning us were reported and deleted.  I can’t even place an ad for us on Backpage or Craigslist without it being flagged literally within 60 seconds no matter what time of day it’s posted.  We had to stop “friending” members on Facebook because they were reporting receiving threats, being stalked, bullied, and generally attacked until they dropped mention of us.

I can’t even get booked anymore for a tiny little radio interview without the producer telling me she’s received three phone calls that morning from people “warning” her not to have me on the show for one reason or another.  The thing is – how are people even knowing I was booked to do the show?  The same for “volunteers”.  We started having meetings with potential volunteers, only to have them report before they made it home from the meetings they got a call or email “warning” them away from us.

One treasurer at a church in Las Vegas told me she was pulled into her pastor’s office where she was told they had been told “not to speak to Jody nor to even friend her on Facebook”.  When she asked why – she was told they had been threatened with an IRS audit if they were to include me in any manner with their trafficking efforts.  The whole thing frankly reminded me of when the pimps who had trafficked me were going around to anyone who would hire me as a waitress and threaten to burn down their restaurant if I wasn’t fired in an effort to get me financially desperate enough to come back to them.  In fact, I can’t name one single person who hadn’t at one point listed a friendship, alliance, membership, or support in some fashion for myself, or SWA as a group, who hasn’t reported to me they were threatened, attacked, stalked, etc., non-stop until they dropped all mention of us.

When I started reading how other groups in this field were also finding the same people were organizing protests against their anti-trafficking projects – that’s when I realized I wasn’t wrong and this wasn’t at all personal.  I’ve done extensive investigative work because of this.  I believe there is an organized agenda by traffickers in this country at work here.  I have uncovered a systematic pattern of threatening female politicians, female prosecutors, female attorney general’s, female judges, female police officers, female FBI agents, etc.  On top of targeting females in positions of authority, there’s also reporters and other media people who have been threatened.   This includes even actresses.  For example, for 30 years Frances Nuyen, the actress from Joy Luck Club, has done our public service announcements, and had promised to help us promote some local appearances, as well as narrate a documentary about us a few years ago.  This actress is in her 70’s now and lives alone.  She was threatened into now being afraid to even speak to us – let alone help us with the film or public appearances.

I then turn to find entire groups were set up online to lobby Will Smith against appearing in the film “Concussion” using the same tactics as being used against us.  Now what does the NFL have in common with Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Sheldon Adelson, Vivid Entertainment, and Dennis Hof?

The agenda appears to be clear these people want prostitution legalized in the USA.  Further, they want to ensure the workers don’t “unionize”.  Anyone who is working as an “independent” sex worker, such as those who were working in Rhode Island when prostitution was decriminalized, were the first attacked.  These so called “advocates” are reporting the independent sex workers are afraid this “will force them onto the streets”.  However, the ones I’m speaking to are reporting this is harassment to force them to work for the traffickers.

When I saw a supposed sex worker and member of SWOP in Seattle tell a cop and a reporter that “these women aren’t being trafficked” at the same time I know women on that site who are reporting to me they ARE being trafficked, while also finding my voice being shut out of the conversation – well then it’s clear to me what’s going on here.  Lenin used to say “To control opposition you become it”.  This is when I started digging deeper to uncover that not all of these women are even real sex workers!  I’ve also uncovered documented evidence anyone not agreeing with their opinions are also being silenced and threatened.  In other words, they’re not “representing sex workers voices”.

Not anymore than what was happening with James Deen was.  He had been the president of APAC for a while.  During that time, they organized a panel on “exiting the industry”.  We were blocked from speaking at this event.   It’s now come out in the press he has raped more than one woman, even one  while the film crew not only kept filming, but further applauded when he was done and she had blood everywhere.  I believe this attack was deliberately staged and filmed in order to further stage the complaint against him which led to the fines against the production company.  I believe this whole thing in fact was staged to try and deliberately drive the industry into Nevada where performers have even less protections there than in California.  I later learned the producer is also being threatened into going along with this agenda in fear for his life.

In other words, anyone in competition with Vivid is being attacked.  This “war” is not at all unlike what Al Capone was doing when he was trying to take over control of the bootlegging industry by shutting down anyone not working with us using the media, law enforcement, politicians, etc.  Even Hugh Hefner and Larry Flynt are retreating in fear of these people.  They are also clearly trying to shut down any avenue OUT of the industry.  As Dennis Hof once said to me “he’s invested too much money in recruiting these women to just let them leave that easy”.  There’s talk even Brooke Phillips might have been deliberately murdered because she’d left the ranch, and was setting up a shop in Oklahoma.

I’ve been taught since day one when dealing with people like this – you need to TALK.  Talk about what’s happening to anyone and everyone who will listen.  ALL abusers and predators isolate their victims.  It’s well known pimps will get the women fighting with each other so as not to turn on them.  Nazi’s also have been using someone’s “own kind” to lead them “into the showers” and “on the trains” which is clearly what’s going on with these women who are calling themselves “advocates”.

Which is why I’ve also uncovered that most of the division among our groups has also been orchestrated by them.  For years, I’ve been getting calls that “so and so said this about you” or “so and so attacked you and told me to do this to harm you” and “so and so is on drugs” and other gossip.   I’ve gone back over the people giving me this information – and now see it was also staged by “catfish” fake people.

I’ve also found myself impersonated in many ways.  I’ve caught people telling others online I’m “running an escort service” for example.  I’m not.  However, I’ve then gone onto Google and in fact FOUND someone who had a website up appearing to be an escort service calling themselves “Sex Workers Anonymous”.  I complained and got the site shut down, but the seeds of doubt were planted.  The same with porn – I’ve found porn sites calling themselves by our name which weren’t mine.  There’s interviews online I never gave, websites up I don’t own, and I have found my name all over things online which I’ve had nothing to do with.  One woman insists I was at a conference in Chicago and “cussed her out in front of a group of people”.  Since then people have talked about how I “attack people”.  Only I was never in Chicago.  Now in the cases where I’ve been finding myself impersonated – I’ve been able to track them back to Anne Bissell aka Juliette Chandler in each case.  I showed this woman a photo of Anne and myself and asked her who was the woman who “cussed her out”.  She pointed to Anne.

No.  These women are not what they’re representing themselves to be.  Like any cheater, predator or abuser – they’re also trying to get us to fight with each other so we don’t turn our focus on to them and compare notes.  They’re an organized mob of stalkers and “influencers” hired by traffickers who are trying to control the sex industry using the same tactics used by the NFL, tobacco and alcohol industries over the years.

I also feel they’re trying to provoke us into suing them as individuals.  Here’s why – I watched these same people try and provoke, or actually file, lawsuits against other survivors who try and help others exist such as Monica Foster, Desi Foxx, and Shelley Lubben.  They then used these lawsuits to try and drag these women into the courthouse where they could be physically stalked, discovery used to gain access to personal information, and to then publish “public records” online as a form of harassment.  I believe it was this type of behavior that caused Shelley Lubben’s husband to get fired, and to force them to relocate.  However, that still didn’t stop Michael Whiteacre from publishing a map to their new home online.  Now from publishing photos he’d paid the gardener to steal off a computer sitting on a desk in Shelley’s private bedroom.   I don’t think the photos were as disturbing as the knowledge someone had been in her home, in her bedroom, on her computer, and these photos wound up online.

Shelley announced she was abandoning Pink Cross shortly after these photos were published.  Enough is enough.  We can continue to act like victims and stick to ourselves and “go it alone”, or we can start banding together to do something to put a stop to this and expose them for what this really is.  Those women who need MORE help to exit the industry need us to keep going.  So for this reason I’m reaching out to you to ask that we consider ways to connect, compare notes, and see what can be done to stop this “pimp lobby” from what they’re trying to accomplish using illegal, deceitful, unethical, and abusive tactics against us.

If we can’t stand up to them and win – then how are we ever going to teach our members/clients how to do the same?

Thanks for listening.

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. 

 https://www.chartboost.com/powerup-reports/influencer-marketing-games-june-2016/


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.
