I see the faked ACORN hidden camera video where a reporter pretended to be a pimp to try and set up Obama to appear to be supportive of sex trafficking. The reality came out in court that the agent was stalling for the police to arrive by "playing along" with this reporter. He was fined $100,000 for this hidden camera stunt because it was recorded in California where the "two party" consent rule applies to hidden recordings.
While most people remember the ACORN videotape - many don't know about the lawsuit and the whole story that tried to set up Obama. Obama by the way has done more to try and help the sex trafficking victims than any other president in our history. Don't even get me started on the Bush family and their involvement in sex trafficking - let alone their outright hijacking of the movement.
Because that is what happened. We saw the Trafficking Act of 2000 passed. I for one thought that meant we had "arrived" now we had federal recognition. I know that in early 2000, Sex Workers Anonymous dominated this country as far as helping those men and women (and transgenders) leave the sex industry, and also escape trafficking. Any one for any reason who wanted help to leave any part of the sex industry, legal or not, found that help through chapters we had set up in every major city of the USA by that time.
Then Randall Tobias came in with the TVRA of 2003. I didn't even understand the implications of what that was for the longest time because of how it was worded. President Bush came in right behind him and declared that "no money would be issued in federal grants except through faith based groups" which between the both of them served to completely exclude us from everything and everyone. Overnight we were shunned, ejected, shut out, and a subject people were threatened with being fired or losing their funding if they even spoke to us.
Did we have any "proof"? Yes. Jeane Palfrey stepped up with her "Black Book" to show that Randall Tobias and Dick Cheney were in fact connected to sex trafficking in other countries WHICH EXPLAINED WHY THEY WANTED ANYONE WHO KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS SUBJECT EXCLUDED. Before she had a chance to explain what those names in her book meant (not that they were 'johns" but that they were the ones who were involving her in sex trafficking as they have other madams in the past pre-internet days). For that, she was murdered in my opinion just as Gary Webb was also murdered for trying to raise awareness about what's really going on out here.
But they booted us out - and took over. Not just within the system - but in the major media. Pre-2000 - there was not one news show, documentary, talk show, or even a film made about this subject where we were not brought in as technical consultants if not to supply them with people to interview. After 2000 - I couldn't even get a producer on the phone. Reporters who did write about us were fired for doing so after 2000.
Looking back - I realize we were given just enough rope to get these people in the door. Then we got shoved right out of the way and they took over. Just as I've seen the "war on drugs" was about getting control of the African American community - so too now has these hijackers now been using this movement we started, and they hijacked, to also now serve as a smoke screen to still attack the African American communities in ways that if done directly wouldn't fly today.
As well the LGBT community and the Jews. Prior to us being booted out of this movement essentially - we included men, women, and transgenders as well as the Jewish community and the Buddhists. We did outreach to Heidi Fleiss for example who is Jewish, and we've done many an Asian massage parlor outreach who are predominately Buddhist by faith. We've also always included transgenders in our programs within the jails - going into the jails regularly to make sure they're getting their medications, and treated properly by the staff. Show me one of these people's "safe houses" now that include transgenders or have a kosher food plan and I'll eat my hat!
So now they're attacking the African American community - I've written to the NAACP to see if they would open up a dialogue with me about this new modern form of racial targeting and media brainwashing. No answer.
I've written to the LGBT Center in Hollywood, California and in New York over the fact that transgenders are being denied the same benefits that straight women are being afforded by these sex trafficking programs - including payment for their burials and vocational rehabilitation. No answer.
After witnessing the hidden video stunt being pulled on Planned Parenthood and their media slandering campaigns - I've written to them about us having the same common enemy and maybe we should open up a dialogue. Because we saw in the ACLU vs. Catholic Bishops lawsuit the reason why we were being denied access to these very victims we raised awareness even existed in the first place was the churches fear we'd help them get abortions (which isn't even true). So I wrote to Planned Parenthood and not only did I not get an answer - their local branches on Facebook blocked me!
I then read how PETA even got set up by the same police station that I have a victim claiming slapped her with two false arrests for prostitution, where an officer threatened me and a Chief refuses to work with me on the case in Pasadena, California. I wrote to them to open up a dialogue about what happened to them with the Pasadena Police. No answer.
Gloria Allred is championing for women who were actresses raped by Bill Cosby. I've written her about the victims of sex trafficking at the hands of Snoop Dogg and his CONFESSED pimping tour of 2003 spoken about in Rolling Stone. No answer.
I've written to Sex Workers Outreach Project who we used to partner with on outreach projects in the 1980's and 1990's. Those who wanted to stay in sex work but who were being targeted by traffickers were the ones we were helping - so we had a "common enemy". When pimps would kidnap a sex worker and force her to work in a brothel or outright sell her to someone, but the police would refuse to investigate because it was "prostitute" that was kidnapped/sold - that was our common enemy and we had a united front over the fact ALL people should be able to call the police for help - no matter what their profession. I even wrote to their chapters where these trafficking projects had set up that violated the womans' constitutional rights with ones like Project Rose and the Phoenix SWOP. No answer. (Oh I take that back - I got a letter this week taking credit for THEM "shutting down Project Rose". Which is funny because it was shut down after I slapped them with a "cease and desist order". I did ask their chapter head to please show me exactly how THEY got it shut down - and I haven't heard an answer back yet.)
So guess what folks? These groups that have been receiving a lot of money from your personal donations and your personal support because you THINK they're out there supporting you as the common folks, the minorities, the disabled, the sex workers, you're female, etc.
If these groups were to band together to defeat who has taken over the major media, and our political system right now - we'd defeat these people in a week. Problem solved. But they don't.
Now you tell me why you think that is. If there was a bully on the school yard against 10 other kids and those 10 kids banded together that bully would be toast. So you tell me why these groups are not banding together against the very same people who are targeting them. Think about that before you cut one of these groups another check, or think they're 'on the job".
