TOLD YOU

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/alison-bass/aclu-joins-historic-case_b_12488532.html

Here is an article in the Huffington Post confirming the lawsuit filed by Maxine Doogan was DISMISSED. 

JUST AS I PREDICTED.

The complaint wasn't written with one leg to stand on.  Not if the intent was to decriminalize prostitution as she's claiming the lawsuit was intended when she was out fund raising and garnering support from sex workers who don't have 30 years of experience with the legal system as I do (I've been working as a paralegal for 30 years since I left sex work).

Which is why when I first read the lawsuit, and knew it would be dismissed, I reached out to Maxine offering her support to modify the complaint to something I thought would have a better shot at winning the stated race of trying to get prostitution decriminalized.

Only to find myself rebuffed, even threatened to "back off". 

So I contacted her attorney's directly thinking maybe Maxine just didn't understand the legal jargon I was throwing at her.  I thought maybe her lawyers might understand more of the legal problems I saw with the lawsuit, and thus might be more willing to discuss ways to amend the complaint so they'd have at least a shot at not being dismissed at the gate.

Only to have her attorney's not want to talk to me about the case - even to discuss possible legal options based on the experience of not only a paralegal with 30 years experience, but also someone who has been looking at legal options, and following legal cases, quite closely for over 30 years also.  I mean I've had not only my legal case I was involved with in the 1980's, but I've also been involved in many of the legal cases, and lawsuits, our members have been involved with as well as their legal strategies.  Strategies which included what Jeane Palfrey was intending to bring about by refusing to take a plea bargain in her case even. 

If you remember, in Jeane's case she was arguing she could not be held responsible for her escorts being prostitutes being she had them sign contracts with her they would not be engaging in prostitution.  The court struck down this defense so she went with option B - which was how could she be held responsible for her actions as a madam when it was in fact our own government who was the one forcing her to act as such under threat of arresting her when she refused?  When in fact she was arrested when she refused as evidenced by her arrest at the airport when she was attempting to flee the country - certainly not acting as a madam when she was at the airport because she had told her CIA contact she was no longer willing to engage in these covert actions they were involving her in.  But of course she never got that far before her supposed suicide.  She had a "leg to stand on" legally in her case - but then again that's probably why she got whacked. 

Anyway, this is when I realized this case wasn't about what they were claiming it was about because any first year law student, as well as any paralegal, could see this case wouldn't be anything BUT dismissed.  A fact all the more established as true when neither Maxine nor her attorney's would speak to me about the holes in the case. 

And when I realized Maxine was not on "our" side as she's claiming either.  This is when I started digging and uncovered the strange little fact that both Maxine as the plaintiff, as well as the four prosecutors she was suing as the defendants, had BOTH received money from Swanee Hunt.  Meaning maybe they weren't "adversaries" either as appeared on the surface.  Certainly would explain why she only filed the lawsuit against four prosecutors - instead of the state prosecutor's office, or even that of just San Francisco for that matter (the same four who had received Hunt grant money in other words). 

Which is why I predicted the case would be dismissed.  It wasn't written with one legal leg to stand on to have prostitution overturned as a criminal activity - something she has been touting it was filed with the intent to do while fund raising and garnering support from the sex industry. 

Oh and if you're not sure who Nancy O'Malley is nor why Alison Bass failed to mention anything about her in this article - she's the prosecutor who is involved in the Oakland sex scandal who announced just in time for the election she's decided to prosecute seven of the police officers accused of having sex with Celeste Guap.  Of course since I've seen cops who have done horrific acts of brutality against people like in the Rodney King case not held accountable even with the videotape he had on his side - well excuse me if I don't hold my breath here about anything really happening to these cops.  Especially since the cases would hinge completely on Celeste's testimony.  What with her mother being a 911 operator - I have a strange feeling we're not going to be hearing much testimony coming out of her against cops. 

Nancy also received $80,000 of money from Swanee Hunt for one.  She's also the same prosecutor in Alameda County who stepped up for some strange reason inbetween our organization and Celeste Guap.  Leading to Celeste being driven courtesy of the police in her hometown to a treatment center in Florida where she was then somehow involved in a criminal charge of assault between her and a GUARD in this treatment program.  Now I've been around the recovery community for also over 30 years and I have never heard of a client being drug off by the police for assault on a "uniformed guard" as supposedly was the person she was charged with assaulting.  Nor have I ever heard of someone being held on a $300,0000 bail either - very convenient way if you ask me to shut her up from talking to the press.

In fact, it reminds me very much of when I was slapped with a $50,000 bail in 1984 to stop me from correcting the press when I was arrested into explaining that the "brothel" I was being accused of running was actually a "safe house".  That the woman I was being charged with "pimping" out of this warehouse was there recuperating from her pimp's assault which had broken her arm, her nose and blacked both of her eyes.  I'd sure like to know how in the hell I'd be "pimping" a woman with a cast on her arm, a brace on her nose and two black eyes like she'd been in a heavyweight fight!  But hey my bail being so high gave the police who set up the arrest two weeks to blast me all over the media as being the "High Tech Madam".  Hell they even got to tell the press that all of that security I had on the place was to help me "operate my prostitution business".  Yeah right that's why I set the place up next to the police station?  You can see what I mean at www.hightechmadam.com where my arrest clippings are placed. 

Meaning I'm well aware of how the media is manipulated to cover up our side of the story about what's really going on.  Just as I didn't buy for one minute Maxine filed that lawsuit "on behalf of decriminalizing prostitution for sex workers".  I've been trying to get prostitution decriminalized for 30 years and this was not a tactic that stood once chance.  Again, if this was about what she said it was about, and being made up to be about in the press, then my call to help her win that lawsuit where I was bringing her 30 years of legal strategy to the table, would have been welcomed with open arms. 

Media which for some reasons seems to be focusing a lot on a case even a paralegal could tell you would have been dismissed.  But then again the publicity sure didn't harm Maxine's fund raising campaign, nor the sale of Alison Bass' book I imagine. 

Anyway, I was proven correct when this case was dismissed SADLY. 

Shame really when all of that support could have been translated into something which would have worked to decriminalize prostitution.  But then again I realize now this wasn't it's real intent.  So mark my words here again when I say this appeal is more propaganda

I'm still trying to figure out how all of these groups listed in the Brief are listed in this Brief being they weren't plaintiff's in the original action, nor do I see them filing papers to become joined as plaintiff's in this action.  Why is this important?  Because if the case were heard, and lost, with the loser being liable for court costs, and even possibly a punitive penalty of some kind for say having wasted the courts time maybe - then they don't really have any legal say in the matter. 

I mean where were these people in the original lawsuit but now they're listed in the Brief on the appeal?  Not from any legal standpoint I can see but as evidenced by the publicity they've received thanks to writers such as Alison Bass - it's great publicity.   I'm going to be looking over all of the papers in this case in more detail over the weekend because I've never ever seen an appeal brief filed by people who are not parties to the action.  So I'm kind of scratching my head here on that point.

But for now I'm afraid the content of the Brief just doesn't hold up to scrutiny of any kind. 

What I mean by that is let me ask you something - if all of the juvenile arrests in California were stopped as of 2015 as part of the "No Such Thing" campaign, dropping juvenile arrests for prostitution down to ZERO - then how on earth can this Brief be claiming that "juveniles are being targeted for arrest"? 

Can someone please explain that to me?  http://esplerp.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/22-Brief-of-American-Civil-Liberties-Union-Foundation1.pdf

By using 2014 arrest figures is how.  Convenient to cite arrests which are no longer the case in this Brief.  I say that because California stopped arresting ANY juvenile for prostitution in 2015.  So by quoting 2014 statistics - yes you can make it appear to be disproportionate - but it's no longer the case however in 2016 nor the foreseeable future either. 

As to why "LGBT youth are detained twice as much as straight youth for detention" how about the fact that one can only be tested for HIV/AIDS if convicted of prostitution, which doesn't happen unless detained?  I'm sure the fact that more LGBT youth are now infected with the HIV/AID virus, in fact we're now in an epidemic according to many statistics, has more to do with the concern over them possibly spreading the virus than that of a heterosexual youth right?  That maybe these "detentions" were more for the sake of getting them tested for HIV/AID than of this being about prostitution or them even being LGBT.  But of course pointless at all now NO  juveniles are being arrested, or at least convicted, now of prostitution charges period since the 2015 "No Such Thing" campaign.

In fact, explain something else to me.  Money for services for those infected with HIV/AIDS is determined by the numbers of those showing up as infected.  Now to make a porn movie on a licensed set - you have to show you've recently been tested for the virus.  This makes of course the numbers for those infected with the virus who are in the porn industry fairly easy to track as well as relatively low since they use protection most of the time. 

However, I have gone into strip clubs and massage parlors here in Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.  Both establishments where I've seen illegal prostitution going on right in the premises.  In fact, one strip club in the san Fernando valley is so sleazy they have back rooms sectioned off from the stage area with sheets where the "dancers" are going in to the "back" rooms several times in one hour's time.  I've spoken to dancers who are over 18 in California, but between 16 to 18 years of age in Nevada (where the legal age of consent for sex in Nevada is 15 years old mind you and yes there are strip clubs who hire 16 year olds to work there but just don't serve alcohol when they're on stage).  Not only have the women employed in these establishments told me they have never been arrested for prostitution since no stings happen inside of these types of businesses (when have you last heard of a prostitution sting happening in a strip club or massage parlor in these two states recently?), but they further report not having ever received any type of HIV/AIDS education, nor are they tested for the virus as part of their job requirement.  In fact, I asked these same women if they've ever had an HIV/AIDS test and they all looked at me like my Pomeranian does when I say something he doesn't understand.  In other words, no.

So if we are not testing sex workers who are the most likely to be infected with HIV/AIDS as much as we did before when they were being arrested more, thus tested more, and tested with results that would be reported as such as being from a sex worker, not protected from this reporting under private HPPA laws,  then this lower reporting of sex workers having HIV/AIDS would thus translate into lower services being funded for sex workers with the virus - so I ask you how is this helping them?

Now, on the reverse side of this equation, how many strip clubs and massage parlors do you know of who hire the transgender or an LGBT person?   Statistically, while there are transgender strippers I assure you they are outnumbered at least 20 to1 from what I've seen by heterosexual, or at least heterosexual "appearing" natural born females.  Why?  Market demand. 

But from what I've seen the police have been laying off any type of "legal" sex industry operation - strip clubs, massage parlors, Nevada legal brothels, webcam studios, porn sets, etc., and focusing more on the street walking faction of the sex industry.

One where there are proportionately more transgenders and the LGBT community who are not being hired by these establishments - so therefore wouldn't that be one of the reasons why arrests might be appearing to be targeting them more?  I mean if I'm wrong - take a look at the catalog of women working at the Bunny Ranch owned by Dennis Hof who owns something like 7 of them I think at last count.  Do you see many transgenders or those who say they're LGBT in their description here?  http://www.bunnyranch.com/

Now take a look at movies like "Tangerine" and tell me if you see any women out there on Hollywood Boulevard working the streets who look like the women at the Bunny Ranch? 

So if there are more of this community out on the streets where the police are operating than that of the heterosexual females employed by all these other "off the street" industries - than is the discrimination here the fault of law enforcement, or that of the sex industry itself that's putting them out there in the first place?

Either way, this appeal is just more press and more fund raising.  It has NOTHING to do with helping those who are being targeted by law enforcement for arrest as prostitutes to get prostitution decriminalized. 

Not one damn thing.

TRUMP'S TREATMENT OF SEX WORKERS

I've been hearing the slams against Trump lately about his "attitude's towards women" and I want to weigh in on this.  As someone who has answered the hotline for www.sexworkersanonymous.com for 30 years, I talk to a lot of women.  When I lived on the east coast - I talked to a lot of women who had dealings with Trump during the 1990's.  I honestly never heard anything about his behavior other than he "was generous with beautiful women".

I will say this.  I do not know Jessica Drake and if I did I wouldn't say I did unless she told me it was okay to say otherwise.   But when I read her account here of what Trump supposedly did to her (we don't know if true yet until Donald confirms), I had to admit it sounds identical to what other women have told me on the hotline was their experience as sex workers with him when we had an Atlantic City meeting and were getting a lot of calls from that area such as where his casino is.  http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/adult-film-star-latest-to-accuse-trump/ar-AAjhnv4?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=UE12DHP  So I believe her story.  I don't know about anyone else because I only know what other sex worker have told me of their experience with Trump - and that this sounds like what I've heard before, especially as to his generosity. 

Contrast that to the repeated stories of rape and beatings done to women by Mike Tyson, all of which were being unreported to the police because he was doing this to prostitutes who we know don't stand a chance in court - and can we talk about Mike Tyson or Bill Cosby or even Martha Stewart's dancing with Snoop Doog WHO STILL HASN'T APOLOGIZED TO HIS VICTIMS during his 2003 "pimping revival fantasy tour" confessed to in Rolling Stone that we rescued victims from?

Can we talk about men who have done real, serious, damage to many women who still haven't been held accountable please?  I'm sorry to say this but the account above of how Trump treated Jessica Drake, who has been in adult films is deplorable.  However, that's just how men act towards sex workers and porn performers and models.  They think it's perfectly okay to just ask you "how much?" like it's asking about the weather.  They also think it's okay to talk to you in a sexual manner, as well as to try and kiss and touch you because of how most men view sex workers as different than "regular" women.  That's not Trump's fault - that's just how men treat sex workers disrespectfully and don't consider that things like that without having been paid for is still sexual harassment.  If you think I'm wrong - check out some tapes of how Dennis Hof treats the women who work at his brothel on the series "Cathouse".  There's one episode where Dennis reaches over and grabs the tits of a woman celebrating her birthday with a cake when she's clearly off duty and he's not a client.  If that was any other job - he would have been guilty of sexual harassment.  Having to sleep with Dennis Hof for free to "audition" for a job there is also sexual harassment.  But show me one successful case of sexual harassment of a prostitute or porn performer please.  For that matter, show me one successful rape charge by a prostitute or porn performer that isn't considered "theft of services".  Now is that Trump's "bad" - or do we have to educate this country as to how to treat sex workers better?

The claims against Bill Cosby came out once victims knew they were being heard.  These attacks on Donald Trump are just "coincidentally" coming out right before the election?  Give me a break.  Especially in light of the fact Trump is the ONLY ONE I've heard talking about the false press we're dealing with in this country right now.

So you want to talk about Trump's "attitude towards women"?

Okay let's.  I know that most feminists talk about "all women" but when it comes to sex workers they act like we don't exist.  Even when they used to be one I'd like to add.  Case in point - Gloria Steinhem herself.   While Gloria has made money off talking about her past as a Playboy Bunny herself, which makes her an "ex-sex worker" 

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/may/26/gloria-steinem-bunny-tale-still-relevant-today I've yet to receive any support, or publicity, from her, or her publications, for the only group I'm aware of in this country which doesn't just help "sex trafficking victims" but also "ex-sex workers".

 Case in point - listen to the interview I have up for a member of www.sexworkersanonymous.com at www.leavingtheliferadio.com  This woman clearly states she was never a "sex trafficking victim" but was someone who after being a Playboy bunny, model and stripper for many years she needed help from our group to make the adjustment to not being in the sex industry which she got from us.

Yet I've gone to Ms. Magazine asking them to do a story on us - and nothing.  I was told by Melissa Farley when I was asked to help her with the report on Nevada sex trafficking in 2008 Gloria was "going to give a $10,000 grant to fund your work" which turned out to be bullshit.  Clearly an enticement to convince me to do the press conference you can read about at www.hightechmadam.com

I run the only program for those leaving the sex industry that's run not only by a woman, but by a survivor of the industry and trafficking which founded this very movement which got American victims federal recognition for the first time in history when the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed.  I"m not only a female, a survivor, but I'm single mother and disabled.  Now have I received anywhere near the fraction of support Gloria gave the fake Samoly Mam?

Not a word.  Not a breath.

You want to know what a "feminist" should be talking about?  The fact that no one who has been identified as a "prostitute" in this country has won a rape case.  That a man can take the head off of a prostitute with a hubcap like was done in Texas and the judge will call it "self defense" when she was decapitated by a "john" who simply wanted his money back.  Yet right he was the one defending himself - got it.

But "feminists" act like sex workers don't exist.  Even Amber Rose with her "Slut Walk" - I failed to see one group representing sex workers, or even a group like ours who helps someone exit the industry for whatever reason at this event.  I contacted the organizers and I asked to speak to them about representation for those TRULY HARMED by the label "slut" and got nothing.  http://amberroseslutwalk.com/

In fact, take a look at their "sponsors" who include Hustler (oh great depiction of sluts Amber - real empowerment there - I'd feel better if Suicide Girls was included if you wanted to include pornographers or even Playboy - but Hustler?), and AMERICAN APPAREL???   Are you fucking kidding me?  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/american-apparel-lawsuit-dov-charney-sexual-harassment_us_5617c6dce4b0082030a2067d

Speakers?  I do see one adult star - but I've not seen Bonnie Rotten doing one single activist action towards the issue of decriminalization of prostitution, helping sex trafficking victims, or with respect to how for example banks and landlords will discriminate against sex workers?  http://amberroseslutwalk.com/line-up/  I'd bee happier seeing Savannah Sly from Sex Workers Outreach Project, Desiree Alliance, SWEAT, if not myself who lives locally to the event and offered to be a part of this event - bringing along our local southern California members.  But we weren't even sent complimentary tickets!  

No I'm sorry this event wasn't about "empowerment of women" or "sluts" - but it was an event staged to bring out such women so men from Hustler and American Apparel could tap into a new victim pool.  

If I'm wrong - where was Gloria Allred?  An attorney living in California is the only one who would take on cases like defending someone like Amber Rose if she were raped - and she wasn't included even!  

Why do I say this event had NOTHING  to do with what Amber was throwing around it was supposed to be about - which was seeing to it that women labeled as "sluts" could stop feeling like, and being treated like, they were of less value than other women?

First because I don't see ONE WORD  about how this label even DOES harm those labeled as "sluts" let alone doing anything to fix the situation.

Do you remember the "Hillside Strangler" case in the 1980's?  These two cousins used to kidnap random women off the street.  Then rape, beat, and torture them.  After getting their jolly's off - they then put this victim into a motel room where she was forced to prostitute for a few weeks with them taking the money as her pimp.  Once word hit the streets this woman was a "prostitute" she was turned loose.

Why?  Because then her word meant nothing in the eyes of the law and the fact this woman was "a known prostitute" gave them immunity.  Immunity which built up to cockiness which led to them murdering women.

How do I know "nothing" was done?  Because I took a woman who had been stabbed 51 times by these two to the police once we got her stitched up.  The Chief threw us out of his office.  When I demanded to know why he wasn't taking down their names, address, nor her report - he said "because her word is worthless in court that's why".  When I pushed further as to explain - he said that "no judge will issue a warrant based on the word of a whore".  I still didn't understand and he said that the court viewed our word as "worthless" because we were considered "criminals" because prostitution is illegal in most of the USA.  That it would be like trusting the word of a junkie or a armed bank robber.

Something I'm sure Patty Hearst can speak about how "worthless" her word is after being an armed bank robber.  You remember her?  She was sitting at home with her boyfriend when terrorists broke into her home and kidnapped her.  Then after brainwashing her - she was doing armed bank robberies to help the SLA raise money for their operations.  She was found guilty and put in prison but then pardoned by President Ford who realized she wasn't a "bank robber" anymore than some of these women are who are also forced and/or brainwashed into being a "prostitute" against their will also.

What I'm trying to say is the label "slut" DOES HURT WOMEN.  It robs them of the same protection under the law any other woman has the benefit of.  Something I think should have been addressed at Amber Rose's event.  But clearly the organizers, and Amber, didn't think so.

Which is why I say "feminists" seem to have a real blind spot when it comes to women who have been in the sex industry.  They degrade us by acting like we don't exist.  It's no different than when the "cool kids" in high school would walk by us in the cafeteria like we didn't exist.  It was "shade" pure and simple.

Now - what does this have to do with Trump?  Take a look at the "Apprentice".  Trump had on both La Toya Jackson http://www.playboy.com/la-toya-jackson  and Nene Leakes.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za_j0s4Sl4U

La Toya Jackson was in Playboy - fully nude.

Nene was a stripper at one point.

Meaning they were also women in the sex industry.  Now I wouldn't reveal if either of them have called our hotline, or are members of Sex Workers Anonymous, but know that their past qualifies them to be members if they so chose to be.

Two women who I not only saw on the "Apprentice" with Donald Trump - but who I saw him treat these women with the same respect he shows any other man or woman.   I also never saw him slam either of these women for those past actions either.

Now I ask you - can you show me ONE person that Hillary has worked with with the same past in the sex industry?  Is there a photo anywhere of her even SPEAKING to someone from the sex industry?

I'm not sure if the fact Dennis Hof and the legal brothels of Nevada have endorsed Hillary counts as her being cool with this community - but I find that actually interesting.  I mean WHY would the brothels endorse Hillary when it's Trump who has treated members of the sex industry with respect in a open public forum?

In fact, Dennis is even "pimping" to raise support for Hillary he wants her in office so badly.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hookers-4-hillary-clinton_us_56c37606e4b0b40245c81c87

Just as he does for Ron Paul.  Ron Paul clearly doesn't seem too discriminatory as to who donates money to him. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/08/indicted-ron-paul-aide-dimitri-kesari-rhode-island-burglary-investigation who lives in Rhode Island.

Now is Ron Paul a supporter of legal prostitution?  I mean Dennis Hof sure puts a lot of support behind Ron and he seems to be a supporter of legal prostitution.  I say "seems to be" because he also lives in Rhode Island which up until only a few years ago was the only "competitor" to Nevada's legal brothels in that prostitution was "decriminalized" there.

So you'd think Ron would be supportive of Rhode Island staying that way wouldn't you?  But then explain why Derek Ellerman, who says he "owes his career" to Ron Paul, joined forces with Katherine Chon, the co-founder of Polaris, to get prostitution in Rhode Island "re-criminalized" again.

In other words, Nevada's only competitor was shut down by a direct connection to Dennis Hof who had a vested financial interest in this action.

Oh it was DISGUISED  as about being "to end human trafficking" but the person who PROFITED most by this was Dennis Hof, Lance Gilman, and any other Nevada legal brothel owner.  http://www.browndailyherald.com/2007/02/15/local-activists-work-to-end-ri-human-trafficking/
  Which again if Ron Paul was about supporting the "prostitutes" - then he would have stepped up to stop this.  So clearly he's not about prostitution being legal for the prostitutes sake - but for the legal brothel owners sake who didn't have a stake in Rhode Island as it was "decriminalized" and thus no one like Dennis Hof or Lance Gilman getting a cut.

Which shutting down "competitor's" to the legal brothels in Nevada under the smoke screen of it being about "fighting sex trafficking" is nothing new.  In fact another "competitor" was recently arrested also under the same smoke screen - Carl Ferrer.

 http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/06/news/backpage-ceo-carl-ferrer-arrest/  Not surprised he was picked up in Texas either being this was where the phony "8 Minutes" was filmed falsely portraying sex trafficking as coming from Backpage which we got taken off the air by threatening to expose just this fact when we served producers and A&E with a "Notice of Intent to Sue for Defamacast".  The show was canceled within 8 hours of us serving this notice in fact.

Something which wasn't mentioned in the hour long CNN show entitled "The Truth about 8 Minutes" about the cancellation where the producers blocked us from even speaking to viewers on social media about the fact everyone on the show was staged with paid actors, set up to make it "appear" sex trafficking was coming from Backpage, and falsely leading the public to believe it was canceled because of "low ratings".  No show for "low ratings" has their videos taken down off line, and canceled after only three shows - just coincidentally within hours of being served with such a legal notice as I did.

Donald Trump also talks openly about just these problems with the media.  About how they've become a propaganda machine out of Hitler's wet dreams.  Has Hillary by the way said one word about what's happened to the press or talking about the need to straighten them out?  If anything, she's said she would "see Snowden arrested for treason" for trying to get the truth out to us.  http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/oct/14/hillary-clinton/clinton-says-nsa-leaker-snowden-failed-use-whistle/

You know I was asking myself the other day why it seems I've been seeing nothing but these "paid influencers" and "false flag events" and "catfish survivors" like Samoly Mam since 2008 - and also why I see Trump talking about how bad the media has gotten but not one word out of Hillary about the problem with the media and then I come across articles like this.  http://nypost.com/2016/10/18/trump-rally-disrupter-was-once-on-clinton-campaigns-payroll/

You know on a hunch I went and checked on the year Hillary started as Secretary of State https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Clinton%27s_tenure_as_Secretary_of_State and I was not surprised to see she took office in 2009.  The year 2009 is the same year I watched as every group in the USA run by a survivor of sex work to help others exist sex work and escape sex trafficking was either set-up, framed, harassed, attacked, and basically shut down.

It's when Sharnel Silvey was charged with "elder abuse" who had created the first alternative sentencing program for prostitutes in Nevada, Chong Kim was charged with fraud and arrested, and I could go on and on up to and including it's when even Jeane Palfrey was silenced in a very final way from her advocacy work also coming from a "real" survivor - not a paid influencer catfish like Samoly Mam, Rachel Moran, Stella Marr, etc.  I remember looking around in 2010 and realizing there were no more groups in this country run by survivors other than myself.  I had even had a guy come to me and try to set me up on some bogus donation for $10,000 in cash.  I insisted he sign a contract with me about why he wanted to give me this much cash and sure enough I had the cops coming after me claiming I had "conned" him out of the money.  I produced the contract and they left me alone scratching their heads.  No - there was a "house cleaning" which happened in 2009 - the same year Hillary took office and I've yet to hear her talk about this subject either.

We've also had more cases of sex trafficking in connection with our own government SINCE Hillary took over as Secretary of State including the "largest fake case" in history.  http://reason.com/blog/2016/03/04/the-somali-sex-slave-ring-that-wasnt

Now I'm not questioning the women who say Trump sexually abused them as to their honesty.  I am questioning the fact the press is talking about it right before the election in more media manipulation which is the cause of many problems right now in this country.  I'm questioning why the media is digging up one woman after another on the subject right now.

But I'd like to take the eye for a moment off the idea of "how he treats women" and instead put it on "how he treats sex workers" because again from where I sit - the two aren't treated the same by women, feminists, and even women like Gloria Steinhem or Amber Rose.

So yes Hillary is a woman.  Yes Hillary talks about things like women having "equal rights".  But I ask you - how does Hillary TREAT those who fall under this category where we are being treated as less than other women because of the label "slut" or "sex worker"?

You watch the way Trump treated Ms. Jackson and Nene and I say he treated them with respect.  I challenge you to show me one of "us" that Hillary has treated openly with as much respect or even acknowledgement we exist for that matter.

I've seen Hillary acknowledge "Black Lives Matter" who is a newer, smaller, and to be honest a group who has had less impact on this country than ours.  It was our group which led to the sex trafficking movement, the Trafficking Act of 2000 being passed, and what is a revolution in the way this country is treating the issue of prostitution, sex work and sex trafficking.  We've got textbooks being rewritten because of our work.  Yet I don't remember being invited up on stage for the same acknowledgment she's given "Black Lives Matter".

Most inmates in this country are African American.  You walk into any woman's prison and I GUARANTEE you that over 2/3 of those women are African American prostitutes.  Women our organization is trying to serve.  Women we HAVE  served for decades if you look at any of the interviews given by Brenda Myers-Powell who openly thanks our program for her recovery and documentaries.
http://www.nbcchicago.com/investigations/Jail-Inmates-Start-Prostitutes-Anonymous-Group-277845151.html

In fact, Brenda created the first program in jails for transgender prostitutes - most of who were also African American.

Have we been acknowledged in the same way "Black Lives Matter" has by Hillary?  http://thehill.com/homenews/288747-clinton-to-call-on-black-lives-matter-at-dem-convention  She even called them up to acknowledge them at a democratic convention.

Come to think of it - I don't think I've seen her at any of the congressional hearings on sex trafficking, nor even heard the words come out of her mouth "sex trafficking" nor speak about decriminalizing prostitution so we can put more traffickers behind bars and rescue more victims because people will then not have to worry about incriminating themselves on the issue any longer.

I'm sorry but Hillary treats us as most of these white feminists seem to treat us - which is by acting like we don't even exist.  Which just contributes to us continuing to be victimized by not just predators - but also by this country.

No wonder Dennis Hof endorses her.

TRUMP AND WOMEN

I've been hearing the slams against Trump lately about his "attitude's towards women" and I want to weigh in on this.  As someone who has answered the hotline for www.sexworkersanonymous.com for 30 years, I talk to a lot of women.  When I lived on the east coast - I talked to a lot of women who had dealings with Trump during the 1990's.  I honestly never heard anything about his behavior other than he "was generous with beautiful women".

Contrast that to the repeated stories of rape and beatings done to women by Mike Tyson, all of which were being unreported to the police because he was doing this to prostitutes who we know don't stand a chance in court - and can we talk about Mike Tyson or Bill Cosby or even Martha Stewart's dancing with Snoop Doog WHO STILL HASN'T APOLOGIZED TO HIS VICTIMS during his 2003 "pimping revival fantasy tour" confessed to in Rolling Stone that we rescued victims from?

Can we talk about men who have done real, serious, damage to many women who still haven't been held accountable please?

The claims against Bill Cosby came out once victims knew they were being heard.  These attacks on Donald Trump are just "coincidentally" coming out right before the election?  Give me a break.  Especially in light of the fact Trump is the ONLY ONE I've heard talking about the false press we're dealing with in this country right now.

So you want to talk about Trump's "attitude towards women"?

Okay let's.  I know that most feminists talk about "all women" but when it comes to sex workers they act like we don't exist.  Even when they used to be one I'd like to add.  Case in point - Gloria Steinhem herself.   While Gloria has made money off talking about her past as a Playboy Bunny herself, which makes her an "ex-sex worker" 

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/may/26/gloria-steinem-bunny-tale-still-relevant-today I've yet to receive any support, or publicity, from her, or her publications, for the only group I'm aware of in this country which doesn't just help "sex trafficking victims" but also "ex-sex workers".

 Case in point - listen to the interview I have up for a member of www.sexworkersanonymous.com at www.leavingtheliferadio.com  This woman clearly states she was never a "sex trafficking victim" but was someone who after being a Playboy bunny, model and stripper for many years she needed help from our group to make the adjustment to not being in the sex industry which she got from us.

Yet I've gone to Ms. Magazine asking them to do a story on us - and nothing.  I was told by Melissa Farley when I was asked to help her with the report on Nevada sex trafficking in 2008 Gloria was "going to give a $10,000 grant to fund your work" which turned out to be bullshit.  Clearly an enticement to convince me to do the press conference you can read about at www.hightechmadam.com

I run the only program for those leaving the sex industry that's run not only by a woman, but by a survivor of the industry and trafficking which founded this very movement which got American victims federal recognition for the first time in history when the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed.  I"m not only a female, a survivor, but I'm single mother and disabled.  Now have I received anywhere near the fraction of support Gloria gave the fake Samoly Mam?

Not a word.  Not a breath.

You want to know what a "feminist" should be talking about?  The fact that no one who has been identified as a "prostitute" in this country has won a rape case.  That a man can take the head off of a prostitute with a hubcap like was done in Texas and the judge will call it "self defense" when she was decapitated by a "john" who simply wanted his money back.  Yet right he was the one defending himself - got it.

But "feminists" act like sex workers don't exist.  Even Amber Rose with her "Slut Walk" - I failed to see one group representing sex workers, or even a group like ours who helps someone exit the industry for whatever reason at this event.  I contacted the organizers and I asked to speak to them about representation for those TRULY HARMED by the label "slut" and got nothing.  http://amberroseslutwalk.com/

In fact, take a look at their "sponsors" who include Hustler (oh great depiction of sluts Amber - real empowerment there - I'd feel better if Suicide Girls was included if you wanted to include pornographers or even Playboy - but Hustler?), and AMERICAN APPAREL???   Are you fucking kidding me?  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/american-apparel-lawsuit-dov-charney-sexual-harassment_us_5617c6dce4b0082030a2067d

Speakers?  I do see one adult star - but I've not seen Bonnie Rotten doing one single activist action towards the issue of decriminalization of prostitution, helping sex trafficking victims, or with respect to how for example banks and landlords will discriminate against sex workers?  http://amberroseslutwalk.com/line-up/  I'd bee happier seeing Savannah Sly from Sex Workers Outreach Project, Desiree Alliance, SWEAT, if not myself who lives locally to the event and offered to be a part of this event - bringing along our local southern California members.  But we weren't even sent complimentary tickets!  

No I'm sorry this event wasn't about "empowerment of women" or "sluts" - but it was an event staged to bring out such women so men from Hustler and American Apparel could tap into a new victim pool.  

If I'm wrong - where was Gloria Allred?  An attorney living in California is the only one who would take on cases like defending someone like Amber Rose if she were raped - and she wasn't included even!  

Why do I say this event had NOTHING  to do with what Amber was throwing around it was supposed to be about - which was seeing to it that women labeled as "sluts" could stop feeling like, and being treated like, they were of less value than other women?

First because I don't see ONE WORD  about how this label even DOES harm those labeled as "sluts" let alone doing anything to fix the situation.

Do you remember the "Hillside Strangler" case in the 1980's?  These two cousins used to kidnap random women off the street.  Then rape, beat, and torture them.  After getting their jolly's off - they then put this victim into a motel room where she was forced to prostitute for a few weeks with them taking the money as her pimp.  Once word hit the streets this woman was a "prostitute" she was turned loose.

Why?  Because then her word meant nothing in the eyes of the law and the fact this woman was "a known prostitute" gave them immunity.  Immunity which built up to cockiness which led to them murdering women.

How do I know "nothing" was done?  Because I took a woman who had been stabbed 51 times by these two to the police once we got her stitched up.  The Chief threw us out of his office.  When I demanded to know why he wasn't taking down their names, address, nor her report - he said "because her word is worthless in court that's why".  When I pushed further as to explain - he said that "no judge will issue a warrant based on the word of a whore".  I still didn't understand and he said that the court viewed our word as "worthless" because we were considered "criminals" because prostitution is illegal in most of the USA.  That it would be like trusting the word of a junkie or a armed bank robber.

Something I'm sure Patty Hearst can speak about how "worthless" her word is after being an armed bank robber.  You remember her?  She was sitting at home with her boyfriend when terrorists broke into her home and kidnapped her.  Then after brainwashing her - she was doing armed bank robberies to help the SLA raise money for their operations.  She was found guilty and put in prison but then pardoned by President Ford who realized she wasn't a "bank robber" anymore than some of these women are who are also forced and/or brainwashed into being a "prostitute" against their will also.

What I'm trying to say is the label "slut" DOES HURT WOMEN.  It robs them of the same protection under the law any other woman has the benefit of.  Something I think should have been addressed at Amber Rose's event.  But clearly the organizers, and Amber, didn't think so.

Which is why I say "feminists" seem to have a real blind spot when it comes to women who have been in the sex industry.  They degrade us by acting like we don't exist.  It's no different than when the "cool kids" in high school would walk by us in the cafeteria like we didn't exist.  It was "shade" pure and simple.

Now - what does this have to do with Trump?  Take a look at the "Apprentice".  Trump had on both La Toya Jackson http://www.playboy.com/la-toya-jackson  and Nene Leakes.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za_j0s4Sl4U

La Toya Jackson was in Playboy - fully nude.

Nene was a stripper at one point.

Meaning they were also women in the sex industry.  Now I wouldn't reveal if either of them have called our hotline, or are members of Sex Workers Anonymous, but know that their past qualifies them to be members if they so chose to be.

Two women who I not only saw on the "Apprentice" with Donald Trump - but who I saw him treat these women with the same respect he shows any other man or woman.   I also never saw him slam either of these women for those past actions either.

Now I ask you - can you show me ONE person that Hillary has worked with with the same past in the sex industry?  Is there a photo anywhere of her even SPEAKING to someone from the sex industry?

I'm not sure if the fact Dennis Hof and the legal brothels of Nevada have endorsed Hillary counts as her being cool with this community - but I find that actually interesting.  I mean WHY would the brothels endorse Hillary when it's Trump who has treated members of the sex industry with respect in a open public forum?

In fact, Dennis is even "pimping" to raise support for Hillary he wants her in office so badly.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hookers-4-hillary-clinton_us_56c37606e4b0b40245c81c87

Just as he does for Ron Paul.  Ron Paul clearly doesn't seem too discriminatory as to who donates money to him. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/08/indicted-ron-paul-aide-dimitri-kesari-rhode-island-burglary-investigation who lives in Rhode Island.

Now is Ron Paul a supporter of legal prostitution?  I mean Dennis Hof sure puts a lot of support behind Ron and he seems to be a supporter of legal prostitution.  I say "seems to be" because he also lives in Rhode Island which up until only a few years ago was the only "competitor" to Nevada's legal brothels in that prostitution was "decriminalized" there.

So you'd think Ron would be supportive of Rhode Island staying that way wouldn't you?  But then explain why Derek Ellerman, who says he "owes his career" to Ron Paul, joined forces with Katherine Chon, the co-founder of Polaris, to get prostitution in Rhode Island "re-criminalized" again.

In other words, Nevada's only competitor was shut down by a direct connection to Dennis Hof who had a vested financial interest in this action.

Oh it was DISGUISED  as about being "to end human trafficking" but the person who PROFITED most by this was Dennis Hof, Lance Gilman, and any other Nevada legal brothel owner.  http://www.browndailyherald.com/2007/02/15/local-activists-work-to-end-ri-human-trafficking/
  Which again if Ron Paul was about supporting the "prostitutes" - then he would have stepped up to stop this.  So clearly he's not about prostitution being legal for the prostitutes sake - but for the legal brothel owners sake who didn't have a stake in Rhode Island as it was "decriminalized" and thus no one like Dennis Hof or Lance Gilman getting a cut.

Which shutting down "competitor's" to the legal brothels in Nevada under the smoke screen of it being about "fighting sex trafficking" is nothing new.  In fact another "competitor" was recently arrested also under the same smoke screen - Carl Ferrer.

 http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/06/news/backpage-ceo-carl-ferrer-arrest/  Not surprised he was picked up in Texas either being this was where the phony "8 Minutes" was filmed falsely portraying sex trafficking as coming from Backpage which we got taken off the air by threatening to expose just this fact when we served producers and A&E with a "Notice of Intent to Sue for Defamacast".  The show was canceled within 8 hours of us serving this notice in fact.

Something which wasn't mentioned in the hour long CNN show entitled "The Truth about 8 Minutes" about the cancellation where the producers blocked us from even speaking to viewers on social media about the fact everyone on the show was staged with paid actors, set up to make it "appear" sex trafficking was coming from Backpage, and falsely leading the public to believe it was canceled because of "low ratings".  No show for "low ratings" has their videos taken down off line, and canceled after only three shows - just coincidentally within hours of being served with such a legal notice as I did.

Donald Trump also talks openly about just these problems with the media.  About how they've become a propaganda machine out of Hitler's wet dreams.  Has Hillary by the way said one word about what's happened to the press or talking about the need to straighten them out?  If anything, she's said she would "see Snowden arrested for treason" for trying to get the truth out to us.  http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2015/oct/14/hillary-clinton/clinton-says-nsa-leaker-snowden-failed-use-whistle/

You know I was asking myself the other day why it seems I've been seeing nothing but these "paid influencers" and "false flag events" and "catfish survivors" like Samoly Mam since 2008 - and also why I see Trump talking about how bad the media has gotten but not one word out of Hillary about the problem with the media and then I come across articles like this.  http://nypost.com/2016/10/18/trump-rally-disrupter-was-once-on-clinton-campaigns-payroll/

You know on a hunch I went and checked on the year Hillary started as Secretary of State https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_Clinton%27s_tenure_as_Secretary_of_State and I was not surprised to see she took office in 2009.  The year 2009 is the same year I watched as every group in the USA run by a survivor of sex work to help others exist sex work and escape sex trafficking was either set-up, framed, harassed, attacked, and basically shut down.

It's when Sharnel Silvey was charged with "elder abuse" who had created the first alternative sentencing program for prostitutes in Nevada, Chong Kim was charged with fraud and arrested, and I could go on and on up to and including it's when even Jeane Palfrey was silenced in a very final way from her advocacy work also coming from a "real" survivor - not a paid influencer catfish like Samoly Mam, Rachel Moran, Stella Marr, etc.  I remember looking around in 2010 and realizing there were no more groups in this country run by survivors other than myself.  I had even had a guy come to me and try to set me up on some bogus donation for $10,000 in cash.  I insisted he sign a contract with me about why he wanted to give me this much cash and sure enough I had the cops coming after me claiming I had "conned" him out of the money.  I produced the contract and they left me alone scratching their heads.  No - there was a "house cleaning" which happened in 2009 - the same year Hillary took office and I've yet to hear her talk about this subject either.

We've also had more cases of sex trafficking in connection with our own government SINCE Hillary took over as Secretary of State including the "largest fake case" in history.  http://reason.com/blog/2016/03/04/the-somali-sex-slave-ring-that-wasnt

Now I'm not questioning the women who say Trump sexually abused them as to their honesty.  I am questioning the fact the press is talking about it right before the election in more media manipulation which is the cause of many problems right now in this country.  I'm questioning why the media is digging up one woman after another on the subject right now.

But I'd like to take the eye for a moment off the idea of "how he treats women" and instead put it on "how he treats sex workers" because again from where I sit - the two aren't treated the same by women, feminists, and even women like Gloria Steinhem or Amber Rose.

So yes Hillary is a woman.  Yes Hillary talks about things like women having "equal rights".  But I ask you - how does Hillary TREAT those who fall under this category where we are being treated as less than other women because of the label "slut" or "sex worker"?

You watch the way Trump treated Ms. Jackson and Nene and I say he treated them with respect.  I challenge you to show me one of "us" that Hillary has treated openly with as much respect or even acknowledgement we exist for that matter.

I've seen Hillary acknowledge "Black Lives Matter" who is a newer, smaller, and to be honest a group who has had less impact on this country than ours.  It was our group which led to the sex trafficking movement, the Trafficking Act of 2000 being passed, and what is a revolution in the way this country is treating the issue of prostitution, sex work and sex trafficking.  We've got textbooks being rewritten because of our work.  Yet I don't remember being invited up on stage for the same acknowledgment she's given "Black Lives Matter".

Most inmates in this country are African American.  You walk into any woman's prison and I GUARANTEE you that over 2/3 of those women are African American prostitutes.  Women our organization is trying to serve.  Women we HAVE  served for decades if you look at any of the interviews given by Brenda Myers-Powell who openly thanks our program for her recovery and documentaries.
http://www.nbcchicago.com/investigations/Jail-Inmates-Start-Prostitutes-Anonymous-Group-277845151.html

In fact, Brenda created the first program in jails for transgender prostitutes - most of who were also African American.

Have we been acknowledged in the same way "Black Lives Matter" has by Hillary?  http://thehill.com/homenews/288747-clinton-to-call-on-black-lives-matter-at-dem-convention  She even called them up to acknowledge them at a democratic convention.

Come to think of it - I don't think I've seen her at any of the congressional hearings on sex trafficking, nor even heard the words come out of her mouth "sex trafficking" nor speak about decriminalizing prostitution so we can put more traffickers behind bars and rescue more victims because people will then not have to worry about incriminating themselves on the issue any longer.

I'm sorry but Hillary treats us as most of these white feminists seem to treat us - which is by acting like we don't even exist.  Which just contributes to us continuing to be victimized by not just predators - but also by this country.

No wonder Dennis Hof endorses her.




















TOLD YOU

https://gay.vegas/news/item/5711484a45a31007bc11abe1

We reported earlier in this blog this was a complete set up and there was "more to the story".

I knew his lawyers had sold him out when I had also tried contacting them with information I believe would have gotten him out of a conviction.  First of all, why haven't I heard one word about whether or not the gun found in his car trunk was found with a legitimate warrant?  Who was the gun registered to?  Why would any cop even think to go look in his trunk when blackmailers are known for being non-violent and he had no history of violence?

I want to know why Donald Burns got a whole "sting" operation set up when I've tried contacting the police on behalf of other "johns" who were being blackmailed, hacked, robbed, etc., of just as much money as Mr. Burns by the trafficking network I believe was behind this situation?

I contacted the police saying I had information on how this man was just part of a network which was using him as a "scapegoat".  For one, I know they "spoof" text messages easily.  I had gone to Jarec's attorney's and the police asking if cell phone records were double-checked against his phone to see if the calls even came from his phone, or not, being they might have been sent from another phone which only made it appear to come from Jarec's phone.  I mean if you were a blackmailer would you send a blackmail request with your phone number showing?  Who does that?

OF COURSE there's more to this case and the reason why Jarec was being scapegoated is because the operation itself wants to continue operating.

They now tell new victims "you don't want to go to the police and have happen to you what happened with Donald did now do you?"

I know well how they operate as it's one of the reasons why I created www.sexworkersanonymous.com to extract victims out of such operations who either use or are the police in most cases.




LETTER TO BILLY JACK'S SURVIVORS

Of course my luck is that the day the "light goes on" with me with respect to some of the concepts Tom was trying to raise awareness about - I learn he passed away two years ago.  

So I'm writing to the survivors.  My name is Jody Williams.  Back in the 1980's, I was a young MENSA  member who graduated high school at 15 years of age because of a high IQ.  I enrolled in community college to prepare my way for the university, but I needed to get a job after my father robbed my college fund.  

I got a job at a nightclub owned by the family who are part of the generational line connected to Richard Pryor of drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes . He's spoken openly about his grandmother running the brothel his mother worked in.  They needed a way to launder money and this was the club I walked into looking for a job in 1979.  

I was "turned out" by this family of pimps into the sex industry.  However, after watching this "family" tore apart by the cocaine epidemic, I asked the head of the "family" to buy my way out safely.  I'd seen what they did to those who tried to leave on their own.  They agreed and I was now an "independent" in the industry.

Word spread on the streets and this is when the REAL predators came to prey upon me - the LAPD and the CIA.  They were working together in what we now know as Iran Contra.  The corrupt police officers who were part of flooding this country with cocaine, all while blaming the African American community for this scourge, also ran a sex trafficking ring.  They supplied drugs and prostitutes to the wealthy elite of Hollywood - knowing the film industry affects the way the people of the world think.  They also needed pretty prostitutes to carry the drugs from the projects into the homes and hotels of Bel Air, Beverly Hills, etc.,  Which is why all of us "madams" such as myself, Alex Adams, and Cheri Woods were called upon to be part of this agenda.

We all went along as we were making money.  But when we were asked to supply them with women who had no "family" to ask questions about their disappearance to be sold to Saudi oil men, and drug dealers, who liked "white women" and wanted to collect them like Scarface collected white tigers - we balked.  This is why you can read how all of the top madams in the country, including Sydney Biddle Barrow, the Mayflower Madam, were all arrested in 1984.

Our faces and names were spread all over the media to make sure we couldn't not only not get a 9 to 5 job outside of the sex industry, but to further scare away all of our "regulars" who didn't want to risk any of the press coming on to expose them.  They confiscated all of our money and property, all while threatening us with other criminal charges.  The point was to make us more "hungry" and thus more "compliant".  

Movie and book contracts were offered to each of us to further ensure that "their" version of our stories were what went out to the press.  I was the only one of the bunch who insisted I would not allow propaganda to go out which wasn't revealing the "whole truth" about the sex industry, and what is now been defined by the term "sex trafficking".  I was then reminded I had signed a contract preventing me from speaking to the press without their consent.  In other words, I was being silenced legally in the form of a book and film option contract.  Clever.

Victims of this had no way out.  They couldn't call the police obviously for help as they were part of the problem.  Shelters weren't set up to protect us from the very systems funding their programs - who would then hand us over to them in two seconds if asked.  Their funding depended upon not "rocking the boat".  So I took an old warehouse I had once used as a brothel and created what I later learned was the first "safe house" for adults in this country.  I say "adults" because only one for juveniles had been created in 1979 by Lois Lee.  Since most of the people I saw being targeted by these predators were over 18 - we had a different issue which had to be addressed.  

The next thing I know I'm being set up and arrested for supposedly "running a brothel".  They gave me a $50,000 bail so the media could print what they wanted them to print and I couldn't come out and explain what was really going on by speaking for myself.  When I showed there was no evidence to support this charge - they arrested my mother.  When we fought her arrest - they threatened my 70 year old grandmother they knew wouldn't survive an arrest because of her age and frail health.  So I gave them their pound of flesh for two years.

Coming back when I was off probation in 1987 and launching the first hotline and 12 step program designed to stop criminalizing these victims to further silence and control them.  We were successful.  Our program "worked" not only at getting people out of the sex industry, rescuing them from sex trafficking operations, but also at coordinating the people to see the Trafficking Act of 2000 pass.

I thought we had achieved success.  Sex trafficking in America was now legally recognized.  Funds were going to be used to help these victims.  Our program had chapters meeting in every major city of the USA generating recovery.  In fact, if you look at any recognized survivor of sex trafficking in this country who went on to create their own local program to help prostitutes - they all came from our program.  For the first time in history, this community was recognized as people needing help - not as "criminals" or "whores".  We had achieved what Bill Wilson had when he not only created AA - but put into our consciousness alcoholism was a disease - not a crime as had been tried with Prohibition.

Jeane Palfrey was the first of us to have the black and white proof of how madams in this country were being sex trafficked not by pimps - but by our own government.  She released her "Black Book" to prove not only this was real, but also to show the connection between her and Randall Tobias - the man who swooped in with the TVRA of 2003 - and "hijacked" this movement right out from under us real survivors.  

Something the author of the Trafficking Act of 2000 himself, Michael Horowitz, has confirmed this movement has now been "hijacked by people seeking money and power".  Which happen to be the sex traffickers themselves.  Just as how in the day of Al Capone and Prohibition - the only ones being arrested were those in "competition" with the mob, which also wasn't even being acknowledged as 'real" back then either.  The reason the mob wasn't being acknowledged as real was because then it would become clear the only ones being arrested were those not feeding this criminal enterprise which had it's very roots in our courts, law enforcement, politicians and the church.  People who all profited by Prohibition while the alcoholic was still suffering and exploited.  

Sure the grip on the alcoholic was released, and placed upon the addict.  When the grip off the addict was released - now the "prostitute" became the "victim de jour" to now be simultaneously criminalized, exploited, and demonized.  Something happened in 2008 - this is when I saw something happening which confused me at first.  The people we had helped to exit and recover from the sex industry, whether trafficked or not, had gone out to start local programs to provide services and resources we couldn't as a 12 step program.  

In 2009, I watched as one by one each one of these programs were disbanded.  I watched as the founders were either murdered, framed, slandered, blackmailed, or just plain threatened right out of the field.  I saw a woman with no criminal history framed and sent off to prison for five years without a fair trial who had set up the first alternative sentencing program in Nevada.  They claimed it was "elder abuse" so she got no early release, no time off for good behavior, no reprieve.  

While REAL survivors were being silenced, I then saw the 'catfish" phony ones coming up out of the woodwork.  The Samoly Mam's, Rachel Moran's, Chong Kim, William Hilliar, Stella Marr - all completely funded by the same people who were being not only the hijacking of this movement, but further connected to the sex industry itself.  Why?  

For the same things which happened in Columbia in the 1990's - the inmates were now running the asylum.  In the 1990's if you tried to call and report something you knew to the authorities against the drug Cartel - they had systems in place to intercept those calls.  The caller then was met with either threats, or just plain whacked, depending on how much they knew or how much evidence they had against the Cartel.  The courts were so afraid to step against the Cartel - "faceless justice" committees had to be set up to try and hold up some accountability against them for their crimes.  Not just with respect to drug sales - but for things which have the Columbia people terrified and controlled.  The Cartel not only owned the soccer teams, but even the country's pharmacies, just to give you an idea about how much power they had.  

We were pushed out of the criminal justice system as an "alternative" to incarceration.  If you look at the time period of the late 1980's through the mid-1990's - you do not hear one story breaking loose in the media about corruption and prostitution and/or sex trafficking.  After being pushed out of the system however, we are now hearing about Joohon David Lee and now Celeste Guap.  Celeste was supposedly not only being "bought" by men in police uniform, even Chiefs of Police, but further tipped off to trafficking activities so she herself could remain trapped.  

Her mother was a 911 operator.  I've got a nice long list now of names of people who have called our hotline because they had tried to report sex trafficking to these new, well funded, "anti-trafficking task forces".  Only to be responded to the same way those in Columbia were responded to when they tried to "do the right thing" and report crimes they'd witnessed.  Celeste's mother being a 911 operator shows a system in place I'd like to know how a crime can be properly reported when there's a woman there knowing her very daughter's life is at stake should things go south.  

What happened to Celeste shows we've lost control.  I've been trying for a few years now on behalf of many victims just like her all over the country to get them help.  I'd like to know how they're supposed to stop being prostituted, when the people behind them are most of the police force, the sheriff's office, even again going up to men such as Joohon who is in Homeland Security, ICE, and the trafficking task forces?  A man who walks victims right past LAX security into this country on plane tickets bought by our own government.  Further, a man for who I've been told we STILL have no laws on the books to even charge this man with any crime other than "bribery" who is now driving a limo in Las Vegas as what the justice system says is "throwing the book" at him.

I've knocked on the doors of our Attorney General, Kamala Harris, as well as our prosecutor's office, who has included Jackie Lacey, and Nancy O'Malley, and the Chief of Police, Internal Affairs, even our governor's office saying I need to speak to them about what these victims are saying is happening to them, and what we're going to do to provide them with help.  When I first started our program, I used to be able to put many of the victims into drug treatment where the HIPPA laws used to protect them from being found by these traffickers and drug back or worse as we saw with what happened to Jeane Palfrey.  

Only to be ignored.  When the situation reached the point where Celeste's story hit the media, instead of her being referred to our program who has dealt successfully with victims just like her for 30 years - the same people who refused to help now step in to say "they're handling it".  Celeste was then sent to a treatment program which took a woman who was being raped for years by men in uniform that had security guards on the floor.  Guards who then took a woman turning to them for help and drug her off to be charged with assault.  Further given a $300,000 bail for the sole reason of silencing her to the media, as well as I'm sure doing to her what was done to me when I was arrested in the same manner in 1984 - to make sure she keeps her mouth shut about everything she knows.  

A woman who if you look on her social media is clearly still being used as a prostitute.  Is this by choice?  I'd like to know what "choice" is it when she's being blocked from even speaking to our organization by again the very people who are supposed to be helping her such as the prosecutor's office.  One who seems more interested in grandstanding for the upcoming election than in doing what is needed to help Celeste.  If Nancy O'Malley's interest was in helping Celeste - she would have turned her over to our program with a 30 year track record long before now.  No - she would have taken our calls three years ago when we called about her plight, and that of many women in this country right now just like her.  

I have gone down the line of speaking to these people.  I talked to the Attorney General's office who told me they can't do anything if the police aren't willing to put together an investigation and arrest the criminals.  I went to the police who told me they can't do this when they're going to risk their lives to put together a case - only to see it not taken to court because the prosecutor's office won't file.  The prosecutor's office has told me they don't see a point in filing when they know the judges are all either bought off, or too scared, to charge these criminals. The judge's tell me there's no point in going against the criminals when they know they're only going to be released early by an over-crowded correctional system which is now mostly for profit in this country.  

We used to be able to get the media to put pressure on the system to "do the right thing".  We last saw this happen with the Chris Butler case.  No one wanted to touch the guy - until the press exposed what he was doing.  THEN we saw the operation he was involved with exposed.  I'm not going to say shut down - because he was just replaced with someone else.  That is what "racketeering" laws are about - when the people within the system are just spokes on the wheel of a machine which keeps running no matter how many spokes are replaced.

Now we have another stack of reporters telling us they can't report on what's going on for one reason or another - either they're scared of winding up like Gary Webb did with his head shot off, or they don't want to wind up on the unemployment line only posting videos on youtube because no news agency will hire them.  

Is it important?  A reporter was confronted recently about why tapes concerning Donald Trump, a man running for the highest seat of power in this country, were not released sooner.  The reporter honestly said it wasn't released because of the stranglehold on the media for who if he had - then not only would no one have not heard it anyway, but that he would then be completely banned from working within the media again because the company producing the segment was also the same company producing the show with Donald Trump.  So yes - when this is affecting what we know about people running for President of this country then it is a "big deal" when the media is being choked. 

Noam Chomsky has said "propaganda is to a democracy what a gun is to a dictator".  Only we the public are the ones being fired upon here. Now I don't care how well Celeste is treated at this point - the system itself which created this situation is not being addressed.  It was not being addressed when I started knocking on these doors a few years ago, when I was going to reporters telling me they're being silenced, nor is it being addressed now for the sake of all the other victims of sex trafficking, and the related corruption.

If I'm being told by every office within our legal and political system there's nothing they can do on their own because of how the other offices aren't cooperating with them for one reason or another - then what is the solution?  At first I thought applying the racketeering laws might be an answer.  When I turned to Kamala Harris' office and pushed on her to do this - she announced she's "running for senate" and put up her donation site.  Okay that's not a solution.  

Then I thought maybe if we set up our own "faceless justice committee" who could do their job without fearing their children, or grandchildren, would be slaughtered on the way to school for doing so.  Who look to Mexico where 44 students have disappeared not long ago and no one is doing anything about this either they've lost so much control after having Pablo Escobar sitting in their Congress.

Only modern surveillance technology has created the environment where what worked in the 1990's for Columbia won't work in a day and age where our phones are the same as tracking and surveillance devices.  

So what is a solution here to a train that's gone off the rails to bring things back on track?  I prayed for insight and believe it or not - I looked up and was watching an old Billy Jack movie.  I couldn't believe what I was seeing - absolutely everything I'm seeing now was in this 1970's movie which he wrote and directed to show the corruption behind a nuclear plant being built where he was wanting to instead build a youth center to help troubled kids.  

In this film, he was talking about a "national referendum" was the solution.  I had no idea what this was and in fact don't remember anyone in this country, not even Obama, saying this term.  I'd like to know more about it so I looked up Tom Laughlin's contact information just now - only to find out he's passed.  

So I'm going to hope this reaches some survivors over there who would be willing to talk to me more about this subject.  I was a kid when this film came out and all I remember about Billy Jack was the martial arts, the cool song, and the way he reminded me of an American "Kung Fu" version of David Carradine.  But clearly the man was ahead of his time.  I could see that when reading how he had to book his films into theaters himself at first.  

Tom was clearly ahead of his time.  But for now - he's "right on time" with this idea.  Please get in touch with me so I can learn more about what a "national referendum" is.  Building nuclear plants is one thing - but when we've reached the point where our children are being trafficked and there's nothing that can be done to stop it, to where when their plight comes out to the light THEY'RE  the ones arrested, held on a $300,000 bail, and having their face plastered all over the media INSTEAD of the men who preyed upon her, and her family, as well as many others, then we need to do something different.  

Maybe this is it.  Thank you for listening.

MARTHA STEWART BOYCOTT

Dear Martha Stewart and Associates:

I've seen the commercial on VH1 with Martha Stewart dancing with Snoop Dogg to promote the "Martha and Snoop's Dinner Party" series.   http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/martha-stewart-snoop-dogg-vh1-dinner-party-1201832529/   To say I'm offended is an understatement.  This country is having a record epidemic not only of juvenile sex trafficking, but we're also in a second HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as a Hep C and HPV virus http://www.hpvepidemic.com/trailer  (diseases which are all sexually transmitted).  http://www.avert.org/professionals/hiv-social-issues/key-affected-populations/sex-workers

http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/4/3/hiv-epidemic-southern-indiana.html

http://kff.org/global-health-policy/fact-sheet/the-global-hivaids-epidemic/

http://www.epidemic.org/thefacts/theepidemic/

Because of the focusing only upon the issue of sex trafficking itself, without acknowledging the fact it involves sex while victims are not exactly trained in proper "safe sex" techniques by their traffickers because frankly it profits them more NOT to have their victims engaging in safe sex - we are about to lose another generation of young people which may number more than those we lost in the 1980's.

The reason for this is because at least the media was addressing this issue in the 1980's while it's completely ignoring this documented epidemic in the young, and sex workers, today.  That and the fact people deliberately set up the AIM Clinic, which used to be run by Dr. Sharon Mitchell, out of business which had been keeping these diseases "at bay" successfully before being shut down about five years ago (replaced with the very ineffective AHN headed by Michael Weinstein who seems to care more about being the new porn czar rather than about our public health).  http://patch.com/california/northridge/clinic-for-adult-film-actors-is-closed-for-good

So the issue of sex trafficking is a true life threatening urgent issue today.  Now we see Martha Stewart, a woman most young women look up too as a role model, dancing and "frolicking" with Snoop Dogg - a CONFESSED sex trafficker as he outlined his year long RV "pimp revival" national tour in 2003 in Rolling Stone Magazine.   http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/snoop-lion-opens-up-about-his-pimp-past-20130508

The courts, police, etc., are experiencing such a shortage of operating funds that in Nevada for example the police will not even come to the scene of a car accident, even when there's bodily damage with an ambulance called, because of the shortage of funds in the budget.  http://nvcopblock.org/469/lvmpd-budget-shortages-minorities-recession/?doing_wp_cron=1476789397.1781239509582519531250

Which is why I got a call into our hotline at www.sexworkersanonymous.com by a concerned politician who needed someone to go in and rescue victims from this operation asking us to do so because of their concern if they sent in the Nevada police - then the press over such an event would cost the state "more than the OJ trial cost California".

This was because Snoop had not confessed to what he was doing while this was going on.  Instead he waited until the statute had expired in most states he committed the crime of pimping, sex trafficking and/or pandering according to each state's definition of what he did before basically gloating in the press about how he not only committed this crime in broad daylight, but knowing no prosecutor would want to take on the task of coming after him ESPECIALLY because of who the "johns" were in his so called "fantasy" - NFL players.  http://www.shouselaw.com/nevada/pandering.html

Who if you've seen the film "Concussion" then you know the NFL has their own set of "influencers" who protect them from the press which would result if anyone was arrested in this year long FLAUNTING of what was the building of a national sex trafficking operation.

In case you didn't read his confession, he brags about how he took an RV from city to city on his national Playboy tour, invited young women onto it, then after telling them he had a "fantasy" of wanting them to engage in sex for money with these different NFL players, he then claims he "returned the money".

I'm sorry but if I rob a bank and then "return the money" an hour later this does not give me a "get out of jail free card".  Not in my book anyway.  What he does not explain further however is what happened to these women he also brags about "kicking off the RV" when he got down with them.  Which was local pimps were standing by to grab these women and then put them to work in their operation - against their will in most cases.

First of all, I would like to ask every young woman who works for Martha Stewart to imagine being invited onto an RV to meet Snoop Dogg, his friends, and these NFL players.  Then I'd like them to realize when they enter this RV (which has one way in or out mind you), it's stock full of drunken, stoned, men who are all wealthy, famous and for the NFL players - some of them are 300 pound athletes who could probably lift you with one finger off the ground - and then I want you to imagine you want to say "no" when asked to do this.  No I ask you - would you feel perfectly safe in saying "no"?

Also, I'd like to know what steps were taken to verify each women who was invited onto the RV had their ID checked to make sure they were over the legal age of consent.  Which I need to add in Nevada is FIFTEEN years of age.  So understand that some of these women were SIXTEEN YEARS OF AGE.  The first woman we went to rescue was chained like a dog to a toilet in a vacant apartment while four months pregnant by a pimp with a rap sheet of felony violent arrests.  The "tricks" were brought to this apartment, and she was not allowed to communicate with anyone.

We had to stage an operation to get the pimp out of the apartment long enough to call a locksmith and get her out of there - knowing mind you we'd been told the police were not going to even respond to helping us because the state "didn't want the publicity" of going after this pimp who would then turn back to Snoop - and the publicity which would result.

This woman has had her baby, but to get her home and have everyone safe her whole family had to relocate because this trafficking operation knew where they lived.  By going from city to city on this tour doing this, what resulted was a building of a network of traffickers I've been having to content with in our program for over 30 years now and one of the reasons why I formed our hotline and program in the first place - because the police not only wouldn't help me when I was in this same situation 30 years ago myself, but I was even being trafficked BY local police, CIA, and FBI during Iran Contra and what became the Rampart lawsuits in the 1990's.  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/lapd/scandal/cron.html

Because victims of sex trafficking could not, and still can't in most cases, call the police for help - this is again why I had to form our hotline and program at our expense.  I say that because federal grants were not available in the 1980's because the issue wasn't even considered "real" in the 1980's.  The Trafficking Act of 2000 giving this issue federal "recognition" as real was only passed 16 years ago.  This pregnant victim we rescued first on this tour is so traumatized not only by what happened to her, but the very idea that the state didn't want to rescue her "officially" because of the fear of the expense and publicity in doing so which was so great they called our little band of volunteers to do it instead "off the record", that she literally can't leave her house without going into panic attacks of what might happen to her if she did and thinking no one would come to her rescue then.

Especially when she's concerned if she did go to the press about her ordeal that men like Snoop, who has a record if you remember for a murder trial he beat in the past, might come after her to silence her.  I mean what's to stop him considering what he's already gotten away with?

While we have people like Kamala Harris and Catherine Cortez-Masto insisting they "care about the issue of sex trafficking", two Attorney General's for just two of the states where he, and his cronies, executed these crimes - while neither one of them have issued a warrant for Snoop despite the fact his confession clearly gave them enough evidence to have him arrested for at least pandering, if not pimping or sex trafficking.

Again, there is no clause in the law that "giving the money back" voids the crime itself.  So Martha Stewart dancing with this confessed, and unrepentant, sex trafficker is so offensive words can't even explain.  Meaning that I am wanting you to know that not only am I going to be boycotting any Martha Stewart show, product, and service, but also any company who carries any of her shows and/or products - and I will be sending out an announcement to our 190,000 social media subscribers/members of Sex Workers Anonymous to join us in a boycott of Martha Stewart for associating herself with this trafficker.

I understood when Martha Stewart went to jail for insider trading because I figured it was just a "misunderstanding".  Now in light of this partnership with Snoop Dogg - I can't help but look upon her in a whole other light.  Do not tell me women are safe anywhere near Martha being now who she wants to associate herself with - a confessed and unrepentant sex trafficker who has been banned in two countries for drug trafficking and I have yet to see a medical marijuana card on him either.  http://time.com/3821236/snoop-dogg-eaze-marijuana-delivery/  Combined with his football league - I would imagine the delivery service has no shortage of people filling out help wanted applications.  http://www.foxla.com/entertainment/142406430-story

Both of you by the way have enough visibility of the young women in this country to be warning them about this STD epidemic, as well as the exploding sex trafficking problem we're encountering now because of the impact the internet has had on this issue but instead of doing this and saving lives - you're dancing on VH1 together?

I'm sorry but I'm boycotting Martha now and will be sending out this letter to all of her sponsors, producers, and stores which carry her products as well as any social organizations she may be connected to who are partnering her around young women.

Martha appearing with Snoop in this manner makes him appear "harmless" like a fuzzy puppy.  The man now owns a medical marijuana delivery service, he hangs out socially with Rick "Freeway" Ross, and again he's completely unrepentant about the damage he did to young women during this pimp revival as shown by not only his confession in Rolling Stone- but also his lack of any apology for what transpired.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLWgXXr9Vj8

Let's take a look at the effect this is even having on P. Diddy.  Snoop's son is playing football at UCLA.  The same team where P. Diddy was arrested for attacking a coach supposedly of that team whose son is on the same team.  http://www.tmz.com/2015/06/22/diddy-arrested-fight-ucla-football-coach-justin/

So we have someone who has been charged with murder, flaunted being in warrant by appearing at a music awards show rather than turning himself in, hanging out with the like's of Rick "Freeway" Ross who recently was pulled over with over $100,000 in cash in his car supposedly to "buy real estate", and P. Diddy, who assaults football coaches, engaging in activities designed to clearly attract in young people - all while again being a confessed and unrepentant sex trafficker and you're dancing with him Martha like this is all one big joke?  http://www.laweekly.com/news/do-cops-think-ex-crack-king-freeway-ricky-ross-is-a-new-prince-of-pot-6214877

So you have a nice day .   I'm off to organize a boycott that has now expanded from Snoop to Martha Stewart.  On behalf of the victims of this "revival fantasy tour" of Snoop's, I find the two of you dancing as you are in that commercial completely taunting these victims about how they were held captive through intimidation, raped, kidnapped, trafficked, drugged, beaten, and otherwise outright treated like animals, for how not only NOTHING has been done to anyone involved, BUT NOW YOU TWO ARE DANCING TOGETHER?

Certainly you have enough PR people Martha to be aware of this confession.  SHAME ON YOU.  SHAME on the prosecutors who want to grandstand for the election but still haven't issued one warrant against him despite this written confession and the fact there are numerous witnesses who would come forward if they thought they wouldn't be ripped apart by the fans of Snoop's music and the NFL - who all have a history if you think about it of a lot of aggression, if not outright violence and even murder.

It's like you're dancing with Hitler Martha and on behalf of the young women in this country - again SHAME on all of you who are acting like this is not an issue.

TRIPLE SHAME on VH1 for claiming to "care about sex trafficking" while putting on this show.

It's OFFENSIVE AND IN DOWNRIGHT BAD TASTE!!! I say that because when I called the Pistachio Growers Board after seeing him in a commercial for the nut - when they learned about his confession in Rolling Stone they at least said they would "pull the ad" which I didn't see it again after that in fact.  

So Martha, you and VH1 have less taste than nut growers!

(PS - To Snoop and his entourage - if you think sending in "influencers" connected to Live Nation to try and slander me, as well as sending in others to try and stalk and threaten me online starting the minute I announced the boycott on Snoop after this confession, a company who also not so coincidentally in my opinion also manage Charlie Sheen, through straw groups such as Cupcake Girls who use their nonprofit status to launder your bribe money to try and get us to back down - we know the game so think again.  An apology to the victims is all we've asked.  It's a lot cheaper to think about an apology and an "amends" rather than the money you've spent trying to run us out of Dodge and silence us.  If pimps in the 1980's couldn't silence me over the last 30 years - your tactics won't do the job either.  We're not going anywhere!  Especially not as long as these victims of crimes such as yours and Charlies are going unprosecuted by law enforcement.  

Which reminds me - isn't it a crime to knowingly expose someone to HIV/AIDS? Kamala - why no arrest against Charlie considering he's even threatened to pay $25,000 to whack a witness?  You want to claim you care about these victims?  PROVE IT.  Your office STILL hasn't called to speak to the victims we told you have contacted us for help about these situations in how many years now?  No - you announced your fund raiser to run for Senate when we pushed on the very issue that if you had addressed it when we first came to you - then the story about Celeste Guap might not have hit.  But then you were having to contend with Joohon David Lee though weren't you?  Now remind me again how you dealt with what he did?  Tell me about it while he's driving a limo in Las Vegas about how you're "throwing the book" at him for what he did while in office for Homeland Security, ICE and the anti-trafficking task force?)
