To further show me her story was "real" there were three convictions of pimps in this operation in 2013 - a few months after her and I first started talking. One of the men who was sentenced by the way in this ring was her ex-husband. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/24/gary-kidgell-yan-zhang-sex-trafficking-kansas_n_3647993.html She showed me a marriage ontract wherein she was supposedly forced to marry him to enter this country.
I have a more detailed outline of the case here - http://sanitytodayonline.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-sound-of-music-and-pasadena.html but to recap in a nutshell - when she announced she wanted to "retire" after having worked for them since she was 8 years old and she's now in her 50's she told me she was carted off out of her own home, in front of her mother and son, where she was slapped with two fake prostitution charges which show on her record.
Meaning if she tries to find work anywhere - these charges will appear on her background check. She was also told if she angered them any more with this talk of "quitting" they would harm her family back home, and get her deported back to China where these charges would result in her getting the death penalty. Did she have reason to believe they could do this?
I point you to the recent arrest here of this man that was in a position in the Chinese government to have done just such a thing - http://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/1810999/hotel-king-among-47-tried-over-dongguan-sex-trade
Now I have been trying for TWO YEARS now to try and get someone to look at this case. I went to the Chief of Pasadena Police when this first started I was ignored at first. When I started putting pressure on him with the press and social media - I had this very weird "5150" campaign start up online from people I don't know, but who are connected to his office.
He's then calling me up asking me to "come down and talk to him' at the station - without asking me for either the name of the officer who called me to threaten me to "back off" the case, nor asking me the names of the officers involved in carting her off. I then asked him DIRECTLY "why are you not asking me the names of these officers so you can take steps to ensure my safety coming to speak to you?" to which he did not reply.
Then, I'm supposed to be talking to him about a trafficking ring where there's evidence already gathered in this Wichita case. I called down there to have the court, the judge, and the prosecutor tell me "no - no one from Pasadena has called to ask for information in this case". Needless to say - I'm not physically going anywhere near this station!
Not when I feel I'm having this weird 5150 campaign being whipped up at me online out of nowhere and I'm beginning to feel "set up". Not when this women is saying she was "set up" for two fake prostitution cases. Trying to figure out if I am totally paranoid - I go online to do some research and see I'm not alone in feeling that Pasadena Police "set up" people.
It seems there's a recording of a Pasadena detective "bragging about setting up" a homicide case on someone and "how easy" it is. http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/general-news/20140702/tape-pasadena-homicide-detective-bragged-about-framing-suspects-lying-to-get-conviction
Digging a little deeper - I find PETA feels they got "set up" during the Rose Bowl last year. http://www.ryot.org/seaworld-involved-elaborate-spy-ring/938824 I would like to add something here. Both PETA, Planned Parenthood and MYSELF have the same common enemies working against us right now. I can prove this if you look at the cases of ACLU vs. Catholic Bishops, and the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Inc
So I'm kicking back in my house thinking that I'm safe as long as I don't go near their station or organize any peaceful protests from being falsely arrested and maybe meet the same fate as Sandra Bland, but digging a little deeper I find this case against the Pasadena Police - https://www.animallaw.info/case/conway-v-pasadena-humane-society
In this case, the police entered into this man's home without a warrant and took his dog to the pound upon the "claim" they "saw the dog on the street without a leash". Now mind you no one called to complain about the dog. No one called to say the dog had threatened them. It was a BEAGLE also and not a pit bull.
But FOUR Pasadena officers entered into this man's home where supposedly the "lock failed" and supposedly "they knocked and no one answered" - and then upon finding the dog locked up in a bedroom they then took the dog to the pound. Now granted, the Supreme Court ruled that they could "not enter a home unless there was an emergency situation" involved.
Now I'm understanding this case they seem to want to be building that I'm "crazy". I say that because today I woke up to my phone ringing off the hook. Members of Sex Workers Anonymous were calling me asking "did you see this petition to have the media stop referring to child trafficking victims or child prostitutes"and instead call them "rape victims"? Here's more on what they were calling me about here - http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2015/10/this-ap-petition-is-not-voice-of-17.html
Now many of these calls were coming from Nevada. In Nevada, the legal age of consent is 15 years old first of all for sex. Second, it is legal to therefore work in a strip club AND a legal brothel once once has reached the age of 16 years of age. According to the brothel licensing bureau - one can legally apply to work at a strip club or legal brothel at the age of 16 years old. They also point out to me this press conference is kicking off this campaign in CALIFORNIA where the legal age is EIGHTEEN years old for sex. So while what they are doing technically is accurate for CALIFORNIA - it does not apply in the states where the legal age is younger. Needless to say, these young women are HIGHLY OFFENDED that these other women are trying to tell the world to call them VICTIMS To protect their anonymity - they ask me to "do something". So I did. Do you want to know why they are asking ME to "do something" and they aren't?
Let me digress for a moment here - would you like to know who is TRULY VOICELESS right now? Members, and supporters, of my work, and Sex Workers Anonymous. I'm going to issue you a challenge right now. I'm going to ask you to go onto Google and see if you can find one single person stating they are a "member of Sex Workers Anonymous" right now online. I'm going to ask you if you find one group on social media of SWA members. I'm going to ask you if you can find one single person saying that they even KNOW about SWA
Now - I'm going to point you to THIRTY YEARS of interviews with members in news articles and research projects citing how SWA and myself "saved their lives" or helped them in some manner here at www.hightechmadam.com. So up until THIS YEAR - I've got people saying great stuff about me and SWA in these clippings, articles, reports, emails, etc.
You will however find ONE website at www.sexworkersanonymous.org set up to bash me and SWA. ONE. Only ONE. It was set up AFTER I got the show "8 Minutes" taken off the air after three episodes aired and after I started trying to find someone, anyone, to come look at the evidence I have in this Pasadena case. Now notice that this site was set up by an "anonymous" person but this person just happens ever so coincidentally to be connected TO the show "8 Minutes". A show that was produced by Relativity Media. Relativity Media who - now insert drum roll here please - is a partner with a Chinese government film company. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/relativity-media-expands-in-china-allies-with-jiangsu-broadcasting-1201220424/ Oh and I'm sure the fact that I set up www.boycottsnoop.com for his "pimp tour" in 2003 confessed to in Rolling Stone doesn't have anything to do with this persecution of our members and supporters either.
Now I want to ask those of you with a brain here to ask yourself why this is? Why is it despite being around since 1987, and all these great quotes in articles, even a chapter in John Quinones book "Heroes Among Us" about my work - why will you not find one SINGLE person even admitting to being a member of supporter of SWA online today?
I will tell you why we have no one on social media admitting to even knowing us, let alone supporting or being one of us. That's because they're being fired, threatened, stalked, received death threats, gotten evicted, had gas cans left on their porch, cyber bullied, their homes broken into, "outted", their children threatened, blacklisted, zoning guys coming out and citing them to death, and one woman even had these people telling a man who was putting written death threats against me online tell him she was "really Jody" and they SENT HIM AFTER HER KNOWING SHE HAD TWO SMALL CHILDREN AND LIVED ALONE. Jeane Palfrey for that matter was found hung in a shed in her mother's back yard. Attorney's who have donated us legal services have been threatened and some DISBARRED for doing so. Supporters have found themselves threatened, fired, audited, and stalked. Volunteers have been threatened, their homes broken into, and even been stalked. By the way, if you care to look I have DOCUMENTATION PROVING every single statement I've just made here about this
If you don't believe me this is true - go ahead and set yourself a facebook or twitter page saying you are a SWA member and you think I'm just "kool" and you see what will happen to you in no short measure. If you receive any grant money from the federal government - mention my name to anyone in the so called "rescue" or "abolition" movement and tell me if you are not threatened with being shunned, disfunded, or outright fired, the minute you mention my name. If you are a reporter - go and tell your editor you want a story on me and tell me if you're not threatened in some fashion I say that because I have a list of reporters who have been fired after writing about me, and a longer list of those who had their jobs threatened if they tried to - and yes I have documentation proving this statement. I even have emails from police officers telling me they have seen cops RUN OFF THE FORCE who supported us.
THAT'S why WE are the voiceless in the sex trafficking movement right now except for mine.
Now I'm also going to ask you to think logically for a moment here - if this was about me being some crazy awful person or even about me at all WHY then is ANYONE else who says they are a member of SWA, or a supporter, or even likes me - WHY are THEY subjected to this reaction and/or treatment? I mean just THINK - if this is about ME then why does ANYONE who says they are a part of our group, support us, support me, or even know me or have talked to me - why are THEY then shunned, attacked, threatened, blocked, or accused of being an "alter personality of Jody" and THEN shunned, blocked, threatened, etc.?
Now I noticed in this "No Such Thing" campaign that Russell Simmons was offering support to them. Now let me back up for a moment here and remind everyone of the "Don't Sell Bodies" campaign headed up by Jada Pinkett-Smith last year Jada who literally just finished doing a CNN Freedom Project special on child sex trafficking in ATLANTA (let's not go near NEVADA folks) where I watched as African American men were being shown as "traffickers" exclusively (no white guys like Chris Butler or Kemp Schiffer) and not more than a few DAYS after that - she kicks off promoting the film "Magic Mike XL" about male strip clubs Can anyone spell hypocrisy here?
Now I ask you - please look around your red light districts in your town and answer me - did the "Don't Sell Bodies" campaign do one single thing to actually CHANGE anything? It sure as hell boosted her online ranking however and made CNN look good. It sure as hell got Jada on Gotham and hosting a special on CNN. So it sure did a lot for JADA - but I ask you WHAT ABOUT US? By the way, Jada has refused all contact with various members of SWA who have reached out to her about this campaign. Not just me - but others as well.
What about this Chinese woman? What about the fact that right now the heads of this Wichita ring are RESIDING in Pasadena where we have enough evidence under the RICO law to have THEM arrested - only no one will look at the evidence? Not just the evidence about the ring. Not just the evidence about the COPS and the JUDGE who signed these papers with this false complaint. Not just the cop who threatened me. Nor just about the other women all over this country right now being forced to work in these brothels, massage parlors and strip clubs because every single time someone goes to the local police where this ring is operating - THEY get threatened in the identical manner I did.
But what about them? I have two people that have sent me documentation that they had a victim of this ring come to them for help. How when they went to their local police in San Francisco and San Jose - THEY got threatened in exactly the same manner I did. One man got slapped with a TRO and a GAG ORDER. A GAG ORDER for trying to find someone in law enforcement to look at the evidence in a ring that was trafficking his ex-girlfriend. The woman also got slapped with a TRO. Which is ANOTHER reason why our members, and supporters, CAN'T speak up in the media or on social media. THEY'VE BEEN SLAPPED WITH GAG ORDERS AND TRO'S FOR DOING SO.
So I went to Russell Simmons Facebook page and noticed he's championing a lot of cases of police abuse against African Americans. I think to myself - maybe I'm going about this wrong. Maybe because I'm talking about Chinese women - maybe that's why no one is listening. Maybe because the girls under 18 being sold in the strip clubs and brothels in Nevada are predominately white - maybe that's why no one is listening.
So I tell myself maybe I need to pull out the race card. I can do that because I do have African American blood in me by the way. I went back to the "faked homicide case" to dig a little deeper because I remembered this was about an African American man. After reading more about the case - I see it involves TWO African American men and more than just the Police - but also the Pasadena paramedics.
I decide I need to talk to the parents to find out how they feel about the fact their son is dead and all Pasadena is doing is the two step here. After calling five phone numbers I realize every phone number for them is disconnected. There's no facebook, no twitter, no email, etc. I think I know why they don't have a way to find them - for probably the same reason I'm living in a moving RV now to be safe!
Here's what I'm trying to understand - I'm fighting the same people that this chick is - http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/news/a47129/shout-your-abortion-founder-hiding-death-threats/ who is just getting THREATS against her. However, I've had (1) my daughter mowed over by an SUV by someone in Metro who thought it was me which broke her back in three places, (2) I've had my phone, cable, TV and internet wires cut, (3) my power illegally cut off, (4) my car trashed, (5) my outreach RV stolen and then returned with a bomb in it (I have a mechanic's validation of this), (6) my brakes were tampered with in my replacement car, (7) I had my front door kicked in and then the police refused to take a report claiming that "I could have done that to get attention" myself while refusing to come dust for prints or talk to neighbors as a witness when I wasn't even in the state of Nevada then, and (8) I'm now living in an RV that I move every three days to stay safe and SHE gets all this press while I get accused of being an "angry hostile troll who can't read"?
Now what do I have to do to get SOMEONE'S ATTENTION that Houston we have a problem in the Pasadena Police Department? How about the fact the report that was ordered by a judge to be done, that was done by another officer who now sells insurance for a living was REDACTED? http://www.pasadenaindependent.com/news/severely-redacted-audit-on-pasadena-police-depts-detective-bureau-finally-released/ (I have the original report anyway because I saw that coming.)
Not enough? How about the fact the Jones man who was shot in Pasadena was bipolar? How about that his father sued the paramedics because his death was because they didn't move fast enough to get him to the hospital? Or a claim against the police on the premise they "botched" the investigation? http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/general-news/20140917/father-of-man-killed-in-pasadena-files-claim-against-police-department
I'm having people turn away from looking at any of the things I'm talking about because they say I'm "angry" and "hostile". What I am is yes angry. I'm also outraged. The fact YOU'RE NOT makes me even more angry.
You know why? Hitler didn't start off gassing Jews. He started off gassing disabled people Supposedly the man who invented the gassing process went to a lot of people to tell them that disabled people were being gassed. Supposedly, he went to the Catholic Church who told him "well as long as they're not Catholics we're not going to lift a finger". Supposedly every single person he tried to warn what was going on refused to listen to him because either they said he was "crazy" or that he was "too angry". I ask you seriously if you witnessed disabled people being gassed to death - would not SOUND EMOTIONAL?
Which was everyone's excuse for looking away and letting this happen and NOT DOING ANYTHING. Did we not learn anything? Something is going on right now in Pasadena involving Asians, African Americans, women, children, animal activists, and the disabled. Yet I can't get one single politician, lawmaker, no one on the phone except one I think wants to lock me up or worse.
I also can't get one single reporter to write about this - but boy you can write about the words we're using to describe some of these victims. PLEASE STOP talking about our "choice of words we use" to describe this situation, or MY ATTITUDE.
Please look at THEM - the victims in this issue AND THEN GET ANGRY.
THEN wake up and realize you're BEING DUPED. How? Read Noam Chomsky very carefully here about the key points in "Manufacturing Consent"- http://hope.journ.wwu.edu/tpilgrim/j190/Chomsky.summary.html He states that "propaganda is to democracy what violence is to a dictatorship"
Now - read where he states:
I:n America, these constraints are inherited in the following:
1) from social structure, and
2) in governmental organization-- and together they discourage alternative strategies of action. In effect, people participate in their own domination. Media provide the information"
He goes on further:
When media news coverage of issues is bias in favor the status quo, these are the results:
2. people with different views, "dissenting voices," are not heard much
3. the breadth of debate is limited
4. the official stance and institutional memory prevail and become history
5. people's interest and attention are often diverted away from issues about which they could become concerned
It was rejected then. You can't change the DICTIONARY nor FACTS. Here's FACTS - A sixteen year old in Nevada can apply for, and receive, a license to work in a strip club. That makes her a "sex worker". She can also apply for a license to work as a prostitute at a legal brothel. That makes her a "prostitute". Now unless this same girl can show she was FORCED to work at that establishment or that she was SOLD to work there - then she is either a "sex worker" or a "prostitute" NOT a "victim" that I personally have nothing to say about that. Since 15 years of age is the legal age for sex in the state of Nevada - then she's NOT a RAPE victim. Not unless she's raped either in or out of the club and BECOMES a "rape" victim"
Now this petition was picked up by Cosmopolitan Magazine at the very same exact time that Malika Saar, an African American attorney (not survivor), is using this petition to announce HER "No Such Thing" campaign sponsored by the McCain Institute (again not a survivor). So it is THEY who are using this child victim's statement to exploit THEIR agenda.
Which is to get YOU to join in agreement with THEM on this position. Now I ask you - is this a DEBATE? Is this a DISCUSSION? Is this a PANEL? Do you see EITHER an active sex worker, an active prostitute, OR a trafficking survivor OR a recovering ex-prostitute or ex-sex worker being invited to join in a discussion about what WE feel WE want to do about the disparities in our language, or what WE think we should be called. Do you see this is to discuss what WE are going to do about this situation?
In fact - I ask you WHO IS BEING INVITED TO THIS CAMPAIGN LAUNCH? I'm not seeing an invite. I'm not seeing sex workers invited. I'm not seeing other "victims" and "survivors" being invited.
No - I see major media asking you, the public, to JOIN THE in supporting THEM in what THEY want to do about the issues here
Well WE don't want to have all of this time, money and energy put into the subject of WHAT WORD TO CALL US.
THIS - THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I PUSHED TO HAVE SAMOLY MAM EXPOSED. The woman was a fake. She was siphoning off money, press, attention, support, etc. from the very REAL ISSUES. Which is right now we have a serious problem going on in the Pasadena, California police department. This issue is not confined to them. We are having this problem within the San Francisco police station, the San Jose police station, AND within the jails right now.
Are you aware that TWO JAILS HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN IN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE OF RIOTING within the last six months? Are you aware that the Los Angeles jail "lost" a witness against the police for three days? That when the FBI demanded this witness SHE was THREATENED? That the ACLU got a fund and a court order demanding a corruption unit be put together to deal with Los Angeles - only almost a year later the sheriff is still fighting them from doing this? He's refusing to hand over files to them they need?
Were you even AWARE before now about any of this? This is why I'm angry. This is why I'm trying to get your attention. And THIS is what I need people to get involved with to DO something about.
Let me ask you something - if a man was choking to death on a cheeseburger - would you stand around arguing about whether he was choking on the meat or the cheese - or would you realize that you need to get up and DO something before he chokes to death? Now - if you were in a group of people standing around while this guy was choking to death DEBATING whether he was choking on the meat or the cheese instead of someone HELPING him - and if one person said "can you please shut up and DO SOMETHING" - who would you say is the "crazy" one here in reality?
