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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

HOW THIS WAR IS FOUGHT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Learn from history!

BINGO!!!

First catch this article appearing on Democracy Now.  http://www.democracynow.org/2006/4/6/fake_tv_news_widespread_and_undisclosed

Then you can go back over past blog articles I have on here over the last couple of years where I've said the following has been going on in connection with the sex trafficking movement itself.  Articles which I've said the following was going on which people have said "not possible".  Well consider them again in light of this new story breaking to light.

1.   I've said the site up at www.sexworkersanonymous.org has been set up to track the traffic coming to our website at www.sexworkersanonymous.com  When I refused warrants, subpena's and even offers to become a "paid informant" on those who reach out to our program for help offered by law enforcement - this site was set up.  Most people who are trying to find us, looking for information on us, go to that site trying to check it out.  There is no "privacy policy" on that site and I've had "white hat" hackers within our support circle report "cookies" have been attached to them when they've gone to check out the site.  Meaning us it's being used to gather information on who is reaching out to our program for help.  So please don't go that that site without using an anonymizer is you're someone in recovery or looking to leave the sex industry and wish to remain "anonymous".

2.   I've spoken before about someone who has appeared to be me, claiming to be me, quoted as me, making public appearances, hosting SWA meetings, setting up fake websites claiming to be ours, and even granting interviews.  I've identified who this person is pretending to be me and have her photograph.  I've shown pictures to people of myself and her and they've identified "her" as the person who introduced herself as "Jody Williams".

THIS is where the reputation for being "unpredictable" has been created partially with respect to me.  Of course I'm going to appear "unpredictable" when people are telling me stories of things like meeting me at conferences in Chicago where I supposedly "went ballistic" and attacked one woman verbally supposedly only I was never in Chicago that whole year nor at that conference.  When I showed the woman who told me I had "ripped her face off" at this conference the photo of me and the other woman - she identified this "other" person as being "Jody" and not me.  

I even had the producers of the Dr. Phil show reaching out to me in 2004 trying to arrange my flight to do the show when I hadn't even talked to them beforehand.  When I asked for the phone number of the person who they were speaking to - this phone number matched the woman in the picture's who has been also identified as Anne Bissell aka Juliette Chandler who on any given day she'll say that one is a "pen name" while on her LinkedIn profile she claims it's another person giving her a reference.

I've also been told by MANY people she contacts up anyone she's learned as making friends with me to "warn" them about how "unpredictable" I am.  How ironic since she's the one who appears to be being that reputation created just for me.  I even found a $300,000 grant issued to "Jody Williams" to have supposedly opened up a "drop in crisis center" in Pasadena - which turned out to be an empty hall.  I reported this to the authorities and everyone on her "Silver Braid" board was arrested for fraud BUT her.  Go figure for yourself why.

Why would I be being impersonated?  Well imagine if Bill Wilson were alive and certain powers wanted to have Prohibition brought back and he wouldn't go along with speaking out for this to be brought back into law, add up how many addicts and alcoholics are now offered "alternatives to incarceration" now in dollars as well as how much money one gets to put them into treatment and you  got yourself a motive as to why I'm being impersonated and marginalized in a movement I got off the ground.  Not an easy feat when Linda Lovelace had just failed completely at getting sex trafficking recognition during her 1980's book release of "Ordeal".  My movement however led not only to the Trafficking Act of 2000 being passed, but further we beat back the legal brothels on three separate campaigns - 1988, 1991 and the Mob Museum now sits where a lot of wealthy people and even Oscar Goodman "attorney to the Mob" had once campaigned to have a legal brothel there instead for years.   Now we have the Museum, and the Arts District there instead.  Since I've stayed off TV since my daughter's birth in 1991 - it's not that hard to fake me.

3.   The whole fund raiser of "Kamylla" done by the Cupcake Girls'. Maxine Doogan, and her crew of women, was based on her supposedly not being an American citizen who was arrested for prostitution to supposedly silence her about the show "8 Minutes" being faked by the producer's in Houston, Texas.

The money was to get her an attorney to fight the prostitution charge under the threat she'd be deported if she lost this case.  No show aired with her face, no contract was ever shown to prove she was hired to even do this show, Relativity Media refused to verify she was ever hired to film the show.

No reporter validated seeing her ID card, nor any contract between her and Relativity Media verifying she was the person paid to appear on the show.  She further claims to have been mistreated in Kathryn Griffin Townsend's program "Been There Done That" in 2014 in Houston, Texas.   The woman who originally contacted me as this woman claimed to be from Brazil with a Brazilian accent.
We got along fine and when I asked her why she was now online bashing the hell out of and lying about us on top of that she reported to me she wasn't online, she didn't have internet, and she'd signed a "model release" giving Maxine Doogan the authority to post as her online, along with a confidentiality agreement not to speak past that point in the public eye.  She also gave me her legal name when we spoke.

I became concerned her children were going to be taken what with all of the public postings her children didn't have food in the house, the apartment was flooded to water knee high, and her mother was working as a prostitute while their father wasn't employed either.  Children have been taken for less.  Especially when the parents aren't American citizens.

She was also being threatened supposedly with being deported if she lost the prostitution case, and she needed to not just have "any" job to obtain a work visa, but job has to be one where she's not replacing an American worker.  Further, the employer has to be willing to prove to the court she's not replacing an American worker, that her job is  offered because she has "unique" skills".  These were things we have helped our members with since we launched in 1987 so we're quite familiar with the system there in Houston.

Right now as we speak we're going on our third week of a national prison/jail protest.  Many who are involved in this report it's over the way illegal aliens are being kept without bail, not being processed, and used for free labor as we saw even exposed by Rep. Portman who uncovered teenagers being held without being processed for deportation and used for labor on an egg farm.  Let's not even go into what I'm hearing is happening on the sex trafficking front right out of the so called "safe house shelters" by the workers there.

The whole fund raiser with "Kamylla" completely masked there are large numbers of illegal aliens being held right now in Houston without bail, without a phone call, without an attorney appointed to them, without proper medical care as they have no insurance, they're not being processed back home, nor given bail, and many are being used either as forced labor for free or they're being used in pharmaceutical research experiments.  

It made it appear she could be out on bail after a prostitution charge which just isn't what's happening to illegal alien women and their families  down in that region.  It also made it appear their police force was doing individual stings rather than group arrests when their department doesn't have that kind of funding.  If you think the media isn't engaged in trying to cover up what's been going on at all of these riots that have been shutting down more than one prison over the last two years in the USA - then ask yourself why you're not hearing about the prison protests going on right now?

Which is what concerned us deeply.  For one thing, we confirmed with the jail that no, any non-American arrested for prostitution is NOT released on bail.  They're not released until they're found non-guilty and their visa's are properly processed, meaning she'll have to have this job requirement taken care of also to be released from jail.

I contacted the court and not only were there no cases for eviction nor prostitution under the legal name she gave us, but there was no one of any name having both an eviction and prostitution case at the same time as was being alleged.  I further spoke to the Houston police who faxed me over a complete list of everyone arrested for prostitution over the last two years.  They noted to us there were no individual arrests for prostitution as Kamylla alleged.

The reason was because the head of Vice reported they don't have the funds to do arrests other than group stints - that it would be too expensive to set up a single investigation and arrest of one woman as was being alleged in this fund raiser.  This Vice Detective further was quite offended saying they also do these stings in group's to further make sure no one claims any "misconduct" between the officers and the woman as why he confirmed the story of her being "set up and arrested for prostitution" was entirely fabricated.

Everyone confirmed Kathryn hadn't run her program during 2014.  Her Facebook page showed she'd been doing a voter registration drive for the mayor.  Also, Kamylla's accent went from Brazilian to Korean in a tape done with Maxine Doogan.  I further have a tape of my own I'm debating about uploading where I have multiple calls from this woman trying to find who the attorney's are who offer our members free help, where our meetings are located, where I live, and basically trying to scout out information on our members and program which are frankly none of their business.  If you'd like to hear this voice on tape for yourself - again it's on previous blog articles here.

I've been accused of "attacking sex workers" when I attack Maxine Doogan and her crew.  Far from the truth.  These women in my opinion are NOT championing the issues of sex workers in the USA as they're misleading the public.  If I'm wrong - then answer me this - why is Maxine and this crew silencing the fact ANYONE, male female or transgender, adult or juvenile, arrested for prostitution right now in the USA has the legal right to ask the court for an "alternative to incarceration" and receive it which will not only avoid jail for them, help set up the expungement of their records, but further help them keep their homes, custody of their children, their jobs if they have them, and professional licenses such as realtors or stock brokers which would be lost if they have such licensing before the arrest?

All without a fund raiser.  All without their name and photo being splashed about online.  All without having to have SWOP "champion" them.  All using laws grandfathered in by Alcoholics Anonymous so you don't even need to hire a private attorney.  That if you further need a job that will help you comply with Immigration requirements - we do this day in day out for free as we have for 30 years across the USA without again spreading the name and face of the sex worker all over the internet to achieve the fund raiser.  

Now WHO exactly wants to not offer that to sex workers and also not promote a hotline where they can call for help when they can't call the police and can speak to speak to another ex-sex worker where we can also get them into free drug treatment GEARED for our special needs, help them escape pimps when necessary, even if those pimps are like those Celeste Guap was dealing with, as we've been dealing with them back to Chris Butler, get help with Immigration, free legal help with things like evictions, restraining orders, child custody and divorce issues, along with job referrals in case they need work to comply with ICE or probation to also further avoid jail terms.

Now for YEARS until Robin died in 2012, SWOP recognized we offered sex workers valuable services and resources.  But she dies, anyone who knows our name is shut out and shunned, our name is white washed right out of blogs like it was removed from Tits N SAs, and anyone who even mentions they're thinking about calling our hotline for help is then THREATENED?  Tell me again who is being a "sex worker advocate" here please?  We're not out there threatening and intimidating sex workers into being afraid to call anyone.  We are however providing you with information you can ask yourself about and consider instead.  We're not the ones holding fund raisers, asking you for your IP address, banking information, blocking you from information on how you can avoid going to jail when popped, how to keep your kids and stay in this country, and then further inviting you to public events where you can be legally recorded though are we?

4.  If you compare the "faking" of Samoly Mam with that of Wilthema Ortiz Pettiegrew - you'll see it's almost an identical match.  Even down to where she spoke and awards received.  She wins an award for "top 100 most influential people" but for what's not listed anywhere online.   This woman claims to be a juvenile sex trafficking survivor, yet she asks for money to go to Notre Dame college despite the fact there are numerous scholarships for survivors available.  I even contacted her offering to send her a list of these scholarships, to which got no response.

Compare her testimony before Congress with that of what we're hearing out of others who were juvenile women of color being trafficked in California such as Celeste Guap and you'll hear very different stories.  Certainly NOTHING like Celeste has gone through was ever put before the Congress.  I took Wilthema's testimony to over 30 women, and MEN who were actually trafficked in the same time frame, in the same cities, as Wilthema claimed to have happened to her,  

I asked them to read the testimony and asked if this represented THEIR feelings and experiences rather than the well funded group who financed everything about Wilthema, including her "recommendation" to CNN as a "top influential person" by the Ricky Martin Foundation who acknowledged they'll "recommend" anyone for a $500,000 fee if asked.  The groups which were paying for everything to do about Wilthema, except of course paying for her college tuition to Notre Dame she reported wanting, included the McCain Foundation and the California Endowment.

Each one of these survivors I know to be survivors because I've seen their paperwork proving they were actually trafficked while juveniles during that same time period in those same cities as Wilthema was claiming to have been, then reported back that if they had a chance to testify in front of Congress about their experiences that no they would not have reported the same things she did.  They also each confirmed they would be speaking about, including at least touching upon, the issue of police involvement as we've seen with Celeste Guap.

Remember, this is a woman where one officer supposedly has killed himself over guilt to silence the truth and let her know he wanted certain things to be kept quiet before dying.  This is a woman who was told when and where to avoid being put into contact with anti-trafficking services by active duty officers on the trafficking, driven to the airport by a police officer, then put into a treatment program in Florida which had security guards for some reason, who then when Celeste supposedly popped off at her she was arrested which by the way in itself is highly unusual.

My ex-husband works as a drug counselor and I've worked around treatment for 30 years now and when clients assault guards during treatment they are RARELY arrested.  Certainly not given a $300,000 bail during which it's most likely she's certainly being intimidated into being silenced for the sake of protecting her family from Nicaragua.  I know that's exactly what was done to me to silence what I knew about Iran Contra during the 1980's.  All you see about me is at www.hightechmadam.com - so you're not hearing about what I knew either because I had the LAPD all over me trying to make sure I didn't talk to the press about the fact the warehouse wasn't a "brothel" but a safe house I'd put together because of Iran Contra.

No - each one of these survivors who had been trafficked as juveniles in Caifornia during the same time frame reported they'd be talking about at least TWO issues not addressed by Wilthema - which included the fact police are often involved in sex trafficking.  They're also often police raping women whether it's considered "statutory" or not.  I mean if you're from Nicaragua and you know this cop might haul off half of your family/friends to Immigration if you don't comply with his sexual advances, and that he can throw you in jail at whim and hold you for 71 hours without having to give you a phone call, nor even book you as I've had done to me many a time by LAPD, they can plant drugs on you as we've seen in the Rampart lawsuits, and they got "friends" like Joohon David Lee who works for Homeland Security and ICE - then you tell me you're going to say "no" to the guy or play along?

Which is all the more reason why I wouldn't even think of putting a uniformed guard anywhere near Celeste as she's getting clean - but then again WE weren't consulted about her placement.  This was something we can thank Nancy O'Malley for who seems to think she doesn't have to bother with things like consulting with us about appropriate treatment despite the fact it's well known our survivors are known to be violent with drug treatment staff if they're not treated in a certain manner.

This fact is why I was brought in to train all of the treatment staff in programs such as the Tarzana Treatment Center during the 1980's and 1990's after most of their staff was being beat up by prostitutes who were placed there was our outreach and alternative sentencing projects done during the late 1980's and early 1990's.  Of which this was the first time prostitutes were in treatment openly because they used to previously reject treatment for fear incriminating themselves before.

I've had a few people say "well you're attacking everyone on both sides".  No I'm not.  I'm attacking bullshit and calling out bullshit.  Lenin was the one who taught you "control opposition by being the opposition".  Monsanto has had memo's leaked out where they've been offering up to $500,000 for people to "infiltrate" their organization.  Anyone who remembers the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960's knows well how informants were used all of the time as spies upon them.  I know a "catfish" when I see one.

I also know when someone is pissing on my leg and telling me it's raining.  I learned a long time ago with pimps who were telling me they "loved me" with one hand in my pocket's, and if you look at what each and every person has in common that I have called out it's been they aren't what they're appearing to be.  I remember well how the Nazi's used Jews to lead other Jews into the showers so I don't follow "scape goats" - the goats used to get cows to follow them into the slaughter chutes.  '

I also know good and well I was working on decriminalization, and making great progress, clear back to 1987 and you won't convince me what Maxine is doing has anything to do with decriminalization when she's throwing "illegal prostitutes" under the bus repeatedly with her own words in her own memos and language when talking to politicians and the legislature trying to make legal distinctions between "sex workers" and "illegal prostitutes".

Distinctions we don't make now do we achieve decriminalization by not speaking out against "ending demand".  The BEST witness to call the police and report sex trafficking is the JOHN.  They not only see where it's at, but they're also free to call the police in a manner which victims can't do.  Further, they aren't going to come forward if they're protecting their right not to incriminate themselves.  They're also way more emotionally and financially stable to be able to fully testify against the traffickers in ways most victims aren't even possibly near of complaining around.  THEY'RE the ones in the best position to tell the police when someone is being trafficked vs. not trafficked, and in a way better position to also testify against the traffickers without the risk to life and family the victims are in.  So you want to help DECRIMINALIZE sex work - then you bring up how essential it is to fight sex trafficking by allowing the JOHN to be able to come forward.

Again, let's look at the Celeste Guap case.  I'd like to know how she's supposed to be able to report being trafficked with that many cops knowing where she, and her family, all live.  When she can be thrown in jail as she is now in Florida in a way a "john" couldn't.  You'll  NEVER get prostitution decriminalized by acting like trafficking doesn't exist, and claiming it's a free speech" issue" and suing the prosecutor's office.  All that does is generate publicity.  

Just like the publicity her and her group brought to "50 Shades of Grey", the "Girlfriend Experience" and "8 Minutes".  Ask yourself if you even would have HEARD of "8 Minutes" of not for their "protesting".  Which had NOTHING to do with them being taken off the air I need to add.  That happened 8 hours after I served the station and producers with a legal threat to file for an injunction if not taken off the air and not only was the show canceled, but the letter I had posted on their site was removed along with the whole site.  Shows are canceled daily which are not removed from the internet.  Maxine had been "protesting" the show for months - generating nothing but publicity and doing nothing to shut them down.

Maxine is getting publicity but not doing a A DAMN THING to get prostitution decriminalized.  If she wanted it decriminalized, then she would be in total support of the work we started building back in 1987 where we've pointed out the victims are children, brainwashed, threatened, coerced, and vulnerable.  They wouldn't be trafficked unless scared in the first place.  Therefore the ONLY person who can report it, step up to talk about it, then witness against it and shut it down are outraged clients who are shutting it down no different than if you were to buy a blood diamond and the buyers refuse to buy the blood diamonds.  But you're again not going to get "buyers" stepping up again if in fear of self incrimination because it's illegal to purchase sex.   Now how are you going to convince the public these men are the best weaspon's unless you've got victims AND "johns" stepping up to talk about this in the manner in which we've been doing   I don't see any of Maxine's "johns" stepping up talking about sex trafficking the way our group does - yet she's silencing us.

Again, I'm a sex worker and so are the members of our program and supporters.   How can she and her group call themselves "sex worker advocates" while attacking us?  WE didn't START  any of this.  You go back and look at date and time stamps and see who started all of this.  We've had a perfectly good relationship with SWOP and the other groups like Desiree Alliance up until 2013 when Robin died.  I supported Maxine, and even sent her work financial donations prior to 2013.  When Kamylla called our hotline we did nothing but offer to help her as she asked us to.  It was Maxine, Domina Elle, Meg Munoz, and that whole faction who started launching attacks against us like on www.sexworkersanonymous.org.

They were the ones sending in "spies" to try and infiltrate our program, get information on our members, threatening our hotline, threatening me with violence, throwing our members out of social media groups, threatening their own members if they continued to speak to us in any way, trying to find out where I lived, and launching the attacks - not us.  We're in a position now where we're trying to warn people about what happened - not an offensive.  We've been nothing but honest and not playing "catfish" games with anyone either as this side has.  I'm sorry but ANYONE can post up a profile claiming to be a "sex worker".

Especially after real sex workers like Mistress Bardot filed a complaint alleging Domina Elle was "copying her every move and behavior" studying her like a method actress studies a character she's adapting.  I've put my arrest record online so people know I"m real at www.hightechmadam.com and I don't know of anyone who gets a pimping charge overturned except someone like Alex who was an informant -  I'm sorry.  I've tracked money from Shawnee Hunt to Domina Elle and Maxine, and I've even found an IP address Domina Elle set up to "end demand".

I'm not even frankly sure I buy this person's story claiming Maxine "stole her computer" and I'm taking down the email we were sent after I post this blog for that reason.

This "Democracy Now" article just confirms that this type of thing is going on. And if you think they "only do that sort of thing on other countries" and not here in the USA - go check out some of Dr. Stephen Greer's tapes then on the "Disclosure Project".  https://www.google.com/#q=dr.+stephen+greer+sirius+eggs

Kay Hiramine was using this movement as his smoke screen already.  https://theintercept.com/2015/10/26/pentagon-missionary-spies-christian-ngo-front-for-north-korea-espionage/

I haven't changed my story in 30 years. I have been saying the same things back before sex trafficking got federal recognition.  I was saying this before the agenda to expand prostitution into the the USA and get it legalized WITHOUT a union and without laws in place allowing men like Joohon David Lee to be arrested in place nor do I think a woman can only prostitute if she's working in a brothel owned by men like Dennis Hof.  That's what "legalized" prostitution means - that a woman cant work independently like they shut down in Nevada.  In other words, unless the "house" get a piece of the action you get arrested.  Nope - not right.  Especially with no union representing the sex workers in existence yet.  You can't legally call a worker a "subcontractor" under 1099 and then determine they can only work at your location at your hours using their tools because under the law this makes them an employer!

If Samoly Mam can be a fake, Stella Marr, Rachel Moran and Chong Kim then GUESS WHAT?  So can women like Maxine Doogan and Domina Elle!!! 
Duh!

LETTER I SENT PATRICIA CALLAHAN

Dear Ms. Callahan:

First of all, I can't thank you enough for all you've done to make the work shown in the film, and the film, "Hot Toxic Seat" possible.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJS9FyF_JGI  I feel like you've not only saved my sanity, but even possibly a movement I started back in the 1980's.  I just now was able to sit down with the film and start writing down names of people I need to start reaching out to who not only won't say I'm "crazy" for what I'm about to say, and have witnessed this for themselves, but further this film has given me a blueprint I can now follow from here.  

Let me try and explain briefly in a way your film is allowing me to have a language to explain myself finally.  Imagine if someone like the fireman in the film who was trying to expose the fact firemen were dying more of cancer than of fires started the movement to get this recognition for the first time.  Imagine he starts going on national TV and saying this was in fact "true".

Only that was me in 1987 when I went onto the Sally show the first time in my campaign to raise awareness about sex trafficking in America.  I've got clips about this up at www.hightechmadam.com and you can even see the show at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWvD_tmEHPE  A tape I'm lucky to have since my original was destroyed, the original at the ABC studio was destroyed in a "fire", and then I spent months negotiating with NBC to get this copy!  Seems NBC now owns almost all of my original TV appearances actually.

But then the American public lashes back and says "it's not true".  More important, the flame retardant industry lashes back and says he's "hallucinating".  So he then goes out and finds other fireman who have gotten cancer related to not just their job, but behind breathing in these toxic fumes caused by the flame retardants.  Now the flame retardant people think "oh well no one is going to listen to this guy" because "they didn't listen to the last guy who tried to raise awareness" so they kind of ignore him for a long time.  

Which also happened to me.  Linda Lovelace had tried to raise awareness about sex trafficking in 1980.  Only she wasn't believed.  Bruce Lee was going to raise awareness with his 1973 "Enter the Dragon".  Only he died three weeks before the film opened.  That left me.  Geraldo Rivera actually told me that "since no one is believing your story - maybe if you bring on people you've saved then we can convince the public it's true".  Only I don't have any of those tapes.  They're not anywhere online and I can't get anyone at his office to answer my requests to obtain copies of the four shows I did with Geraldo.  But I do have a few others such as Donahue which was taped a few months before he was taken off the air.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeG_CO06O2o

Imagine if after one year of trying to raise awareness about this flame retardant issue - the chemical companies try and pass a law requiring all carpeting, clothing, and furniture manufacturers  to use their chemical in order to sell their products in the state of California.   Imagine they spent over $1,000,000 with PR firms to help them pass this law, and even paid  another $1,000,000 to buy a "research study" out of the University of Berkeley to prove that "no one has ever got cancer from these chemicals".  Then imagine that when they're doing press about this law the ONLY person who will step up to oppose them is this one fireman.  Now mind you there's laws on the books at the time saying that no one can go on TV or radio talking about a law about to be passed without the opposition being allowed to voice their opinion as it was the case before the Telecommunications Act of 1995 passed.  Which is the ONLY reason I was allowed on that show at that time - it was the only way Joe could on the air!  

Then at the end of the year when voters go to the poll - imagine the chemical company LOSES.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUrAI2Ob4zA  Here's a tape I did opposing Joe Conforte when he did just this to try and get brothels legalized in California in 1988 - just one year after I launched the hotline and 12 step program "Prostitutes Anonymous".  Joe had in fact put up one million dollars to PR firms, and he further bought this study about HIV in his employees which he rigged so it would appear none of them contracted HIV.  He also left out of media appearances he'd paid for the study in the first place when making his claim "no brothel prostitutes contract HIV".   

So then 13 years later, this fireman gets federal recognition for this in fact being "real".  For the first time, doctors can now start treating cancer related to flame retardants and billing insurance.  They couldn't bill insurance for this before because supposedly it wasn't "real".  

This was the Trafficking Act of 2000. 

Up until then, the only prostitutes recognized as "victims" were Chinese women and juveniles who were taken over state lines with the Mann Act of 1910.  Further, no one had been prosecuted under the Mann Act up to the year 2000 except two African American men who had married white women - Chuck Berry and Joe Johnson.  

Victim services prior to the year 2000 had refused to offer any payment or assistance to domestic sex trafficking victims because they weren't "federally recognized" as anything but "criminals".  So we actually obtained federal recognition this issue was not only real with this passing, but further it meant money could now be used by our government to help these victims.  Up to that point, money had to be obtained through private donations or paid for by people like us.  I myself had spent over $400,000 of my own money helping victims because there was no such federal money, grant money, etc. available before this Act passed.  You also couldn't hold any fund raisers for it - because again no one thought it was "real" outside of the actual victims before this.

Okay now the flame retardant people realize there's a problem - a big problem.  So they have got to do something about this.  Which your film outlined what they did - a huge campaign about how their chemicals "save children".  Of course making it look like anyone opposing this must "support children being burned alive".  My what an awful person this guy must be to want children to die from a preventable fire right?

But see the last thing they want is REAL firemen talking in the media about this issue.  We've got on the books now that firemen are dying of cancer.  This fireman, and the people he's been working with, all say the source of that cancer is the flame retardant chemicals.  It's now a fact that firemen are getting cancer.  Cats out of the bag there.  

So now the chemical companies have to lash back with a huge media campaign that the source of their cancer is not their product - but instead tobacco.  That's a logical assumption right?  They're getting from smoking!

Meaning now you've got to find firemen who will say the source of their cancer is smoking.  What do you do?  Well this little fireman has already got this on the books.  Everyone knows him.  Everyone knows his face.  He started all of this.  He's the "expert in the field" people clearly believe.  So if you can get that fireman to stand up in the press and say his cancer was caused by smoking - then you're off the hook right?  

Which is what happened to me in 2007.  Melissa Farley, PhD, came to me and asked me to work in a a report about sex trafficking in Nevada for the State Dept.  She then told me if I helped her with this report  we were going to be given a grant for $300,000, and that an architecture firm in Las Vegas had offered to donate us the building of a center where we could take in victims from all over the world that I could even design.  She even told me that I'd get to meet Gloria Steinhem, Diane Von Fursterberg, and even Prince for God's sake knowing he was my favorite musician!   You can read more about this press conference we gave to release this report at www.hightechmadam.com

Melissa even asked me to bring out my "two best firemen" which was Brenda Myers-Powell and Kathleen Mitchell to support the release of the report "Trafficking in Nevada - Making the Connections".  Only as I'm in a room filled with the press from all over the world, and I'm literally being miked by the sound guy to go up and talk about this report - she asks me to speak what is the equivalent of saying it was smoking that caused our cancer to the press.

I refused.

So Melissa then took the reporters out into the hallway and spoke to them "one on one" saying that this was in fact my view.  Which then led to the release of those articles calling to "outlaw the industry" which was not my words.  Well needless to say, in these terms the "tobacco" industry wouldn't be too happy about me blaming them now would they?  So in fact, I go home from this press conference which has just blamed them for our cancer to find my car has been trashed by men who are owners of tobacco companies in that sense.   Is my beef with them?  No.

But now they got a beef with me. 

I even get one of the owners of the largest tobacco companies there is in the world send an employee over to me right after this conference to report that I am now "blacklisted" in any media he owns or controls or buys any advertising with.  That man is Sheldon Adelson who not only is pushing for the legalization of prostitution, but further hates unions (which I support in the sex industry) and also happens to fund a HUGE chunk of the drug treatment world.  Which would be the equivalent of the cancer medical community who treat the firemen's cancer.  Meaning that in one fell swoop - all of the support I'd received up to that point from the drug treatment world was also yanked and turned against me by what Melissa Farley did to me that day.  Which again would be like if in my analogy if all of the cancer treatment community were turned against me while I'm still having firemen with cancer calling me up for help and support.  

Can he do this?  Can he "blacklist" me?  Only let's take this back to a time when the Telecommunications Act of 1995 passed and major media is now owned by the corporations.  Further, Fox vs. Snopes now has created a legal precedence where the media can actually fire a reporter such as yourself if they refuse to report something they know is a lie.  I'm going to assume that when you reported on this issue - you didn't have a boss standing over you who owned stock in a flame retardant company telling you if you published anything on this story you'd be fired.  Nor were you dealing with companies such as Relativity Media making films about the so called "truth about firemen" which when you uncover the so called "reality expose" was in fact staged and scripted falsely with actors and staged scenarios - you then go to the FCC who tells you "there's not a law against it".  

Well trust me - the "sex industry" has a lot more supporters than the flame retardant chemical industry, as well as lot more CONSUMERS!    http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.blogspot.com/2016/08/the-new-mafia-in-america.html  Companies such as "Live Nation" who actually handles the press for not only Charlie Sheen (a consumer) and Snoop Dogg (a manufacturer), but also for the Pope, as well as  Hearst Media, Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and the CIA - all who have partnered with, or donated heavily, to Polaris.  Who has now created a "monopoly" against our group.  I certainly can't compete with the people who are funding all grants in field.   Which I can show you documented evidence their support of the push to not only get prostitution legalized in this country, but further how they are being used to attack the "competitors" of where the sex industry is going today.  Or anyone not working for them in other words. 

But a problem remains.  How are you going to get any REAL fireman to stand up and say the source of their cancer is smoking and not flame retardant chemicals?

You can't.  


But you can hire "fakes".  Welcome to Chong Kim, Stella Marr and then Samoly Mam.  http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/30/world/asia/cambodia-sex-slavery-foundation-hero-resign/

You can also create "influencers" online just like the video game companies use to sell their products.  

Only you can't just use "victims" of smoking as your "influencers" in the media.  Not real ones anyway.  No - you've also got to find a doctor who will tell you his whole practice is devoted to helping firemen who get cancer from smoking - not the chemicals.  Welcome to William Hillar who the series "Taken" was based upon claiming to be about "sex trafficking rescue".  https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/man-who-profited-from-fabricated-military-resume-is-sentenced-to-21-months/2011/08/30/gIQAnKHfqJ_story.html

One by one the "fakes" are being exposed.  What do you do?  How are you going to continue to get the public, and the law makers, to believe the firemen are  getting cancer from smoking and not from the chemicals?

Well the next step is to get someone from the tobacco industry to step up and say they are not only doing it - but they further are aware they're doing it.  You need to find yourself some person in the tobacco industry to step up and claim responsibility.  Now here I can't point any fingers openly in the media without risking a defamation suit yet  - but I can point out one person making the equivalent kinds of statements, from an equivalent kind of viewpoint, who I've traced money being given to her by the flame retardant chemical companies.  So you have to ask yourself why would this person in the tobacco industry take money from the flame retardant chemical company when they're out protesting the chemical retardant people at the same time?  

See in your film you traced money to groups who were trying to use very clever marketing to push the idea of keeping the use of these chemicals in place. They even used "real" fire victims just as this movement is using so called "real" prostitutes.   I'm not sure however if you traced money to people who were setting up protests of the chemical companies while taking money from the chemical companies.  But I have "followed the money" to just such so called 'opposition" within the sex industry.  

It sound counter-intuitive - but when you realize you get more press from opposition and controversy, as well as the human mind WANTS things they are "forbidden" then it does start to make sense.   In fact, this is why the real tobacco companies were doing things like "youth prevention campaigns" back in the 1950's to sell their product to children while claiming at the same time they were trying to stop it.  

In fact, I have a lot of information I've been gathering on this issue that I'd like to talk to you about.  I saw in the film how when you were able to put together a series for the Chicago Tribune - and then this whole thing turned around.  That's of course what I'd like to talk to you about.  At least I know you're aware of how this "system" works with these large companies and that gives me a way to communicate these issues at least.  Your film is giving me a road map but our work is complicated further by the fact that many people don't like to talk about the subject of sex.  On top of that, prostitution is illegal in most of this country - further discouraging "real" victims from coming forward and speaking up in the press.   Further, we've got to deal with the people who are involved with the issue of abortion involved in this also to deal with.

Please call me any day you can at (702) 488-1127.  I would appreciate just someone to discuss over strategy with.  Thanks again for what you did. I at least now have a way to explain what I'm seeing happen in our movement to try and address sex trafficking in America.

Thank you.

THE NEW MAFIA IN AMERICA

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

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

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

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

Savannah Sly WAS NOT ADVERTISING ON THAT SITE.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COMBATING THE "PIMP LOBBY"

Hello:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks for listening.
