LETTER TO JANET MOCK AND MELISSA MIRA GRANT SENT AFTER READING ABOUT JANET'S "WORDS BEING ERASED" IN AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT WOMENS' RIGHTS

Dear Melissa:

In reading about what happened with Janet - I thought you might like a copy of the email I just sent her inviting her to open up a dialogue with us over here at Sex Workers Anonymous.  

Now before you go jumping to any conclusions about who or what you "think" we are - I invite you to read the email herein.  I also want to ask you to look at the kinds of "counter" campaigns that have been launched by corporations such as Monsanto into attacking their protesters for a moment also.  

After reading about what they do to protect their interests - http://www.naturalnews.com/040492_GMO_activists_Monsanto_blackwater.html  I want to ask you if you think after all of the successful ground we were making over a 30 year span of time if you can consider that maybe, just maybe, everything you've been "told" to you about us just isn't true?

IF these groups put so much money into the concept of "saving" us and that we need "rescue" to the tune of even creating a whole fake person with "Samoly Mam" just to get someone to run around mouthing their views while pretending to be someone she wasn't, even coaching little children to lie about who they were - do you not think it's just as real that they might also be engaging in a "counter" campaign to try and smear us to "divide and conquer"?  

It's quite common you know to stir up fake social media against one's enemies these days as evidenced by what happened to KFC when attacked by a Chinese marketing company -  https://www.wsj.com/articles/kfc-sues-chinese-companies-over-alleged-eight-legged-chicken-rumors-1433166317

Now I ask you to consider for a moment - what if - just what if - that statement had been released with words printed as Janet's words which were not her actual words what the reaction might be if somehow during this event you witnessed with your own eyes - what if someone had planted the words saying that Janet had "called to outlaw the sex industry" as was done to me in 2007 at a press conference I was invited to participate in under deceptive pretenses I learned too late in fact about.

What do you think the phones would be like the next day had those words gone out attributed falsely to Janet?  Now a lot of years has passed in 2007 to 2017 - ten years.  Imagine if this kind of war in the media to try and maintain what her real views are has been a war waging for 10 years?  Now I've managed to get about 99 % of the false statements, even the "fake documentaries" taken off social media - but I also can't calm down and explain myself to some people who are so upset they won't listen to my explanations "those aren't my words" either.  

Meaning before you jump to any conclusion about what or who you think I or the hotline/program I run stands for in reality - I ask you to please consider that before forming that opinion you and I might personally speak to each other even first for two minutes?  Something neither you nor Janet and I have done yet to date have we?  

I have to say I admire REPUTABLE investigative reporters such as John Quinones to name just one from ABC's "What Would You Do?", or even Bob Herbert who used to have an opt-ed column with the Ny Times.  Why?  Because in 2007 with Bob and 2009 with John - these men didn't listen to what ANYONE said about us, not even me.  They each got into a plane and then a car to personally come out to Las Vegas.  

After coming to where I lived at that time, they then spent time meeting with me, coming to my home, meeting with SWA members, watching how we operated over time, and John even spent time meeting with my daughter, talking to my landlord - I mean doing a very THOROUGH investigation into me and SWA's operations.  The results of their work was shown in the positive articles/chapters they then published about SWA and myself which I also have up on www.hightechmadam.com

Which even that nickname "high tech madam" is misleading by the way.  Yes I was arrested for supposedly "running a brothel" with my mother in 1984 but the truth is that wasn't what that warehouse was at all.  Yes it had been the site of an illegal brothel at one time.  Yes I had been working as an escort and madam during 1984.  However, that warehouse had been converted into the first "safe house" in the USA for adult victims needing a place to escape sex trafficking.  Now hold on a minute because I'm NOT saying "pimps".  If one needed to stop a pimp in 1987 all one had to do was pick up the phone and call 911.  

I didn't need a warehouse in an industrial section of town equipped with expensive sophisticated surveillance equipment nor high tech security equipment either next to the police station to operate a "brothel".  That was an excuse to get into the place where the LAPD then tore up my video cameras, destroying some evidence I had against them and other people such as Chuck Barris and our own CIA.  

To understand who and what I was trying to keep safe and hide there - you need to read up on Iran Contra, the Hillside Strangler case which was actually two pimps targeting "square" girls for abuse and then transforming them into prostitutes in order to invalidate their testimony against them before they evolved into murder, and also more about Chuck Barris and his ties to the CIA you can read about in "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind".  

I was also arrested so that the LAPD could spread the rumor I was "going to turn on people" to try and make my friends and supporters "run" to the hills to protect themselves from incrimination and/or prosecution.  At the time, the news hadn't broke yet that I was helping to launder money for prostitutes on movie sets through their budgets we were helping to draw up at Paramount Studios for example.  

See even then the authorities were trying to "divide and conquer" in order to get control over people and what they wanted to have happen - happen using fear, rumors, smear campaigns, etc.  Because that's how the other side works - to "divide and conquer" us from moving this movement forward.  They did it to get my "safe house" shut down and wipe out my evidence against them then, also chasing off any supporters I might have at that time.  They also arrested all the other madams at our level in 1984 - go on and check it out on Google and you'll find ALL of us from the east coast to the west coast were arrested in 1984.  Partly to again "divide and conquer" the alliances we had built up talking to each other about what we were going to do about what the police were doing to us back then.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/thedailymirror/2007/12/heidi-fleiss.html  Elizabeth Adams was arrested in 1984 with me, and then promptly got herself introduced to Heidi Fleiss that same year.  



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_Biddle_Barrows  Mayflower Madam arrested 1984.

Cheri Woods was arrested in 1985 in this article - but I also know she was arrested in 1984 when she was six months pregnant at the time.  http://www.canyon-news.com/west-hollywood-landlord-pleads/61688

This article talks about how in 1984 100's of prostitutes were targeted for arrest "In the first two months of 1984, police arrested 443 men and women for prostitution related charges, but with no apparent change." http://www.sandiegohistory.org/journal/1989/january/prostitutes/   
  '
I think you see see by just these links there was an organized effort going on in the USA in 1984 to "divide and conquer" the alliance we had built up amongst the madams to try and "network" a communication line between all of us during a time when we had no internet nor cell phones.  Lines which were broken up during 1984 deliberately by these arrests.  Something again which has been targeted to this community starting back in 2007 when I refused to mouth certain "untruths" during an international press conference I had agreed to appear at and involve SWA with.  Had not my mother just died back then, I doubt I wouldn't have so "off" my normal intuition and wouldn't have done the whole thing in the first place - but it's done.  I was asked to do this because of the progress and headway our program had been creating,


Especially with the headway we were making up to 2007 that started the whole riff I'm talking about here.  So I'll also invite you to please check this out and call me sometime at (702) 488-1127.  Like most people who are in the media eye a lot - I'm not quite what I'm painted out to be anymore than Planned Parenthood was accurately portrayed in those hidden videos fabricated against them either by the same EXACT people we're fighting right now in this movement here.  

These people came after us when after offering me a substantial amount of money as a salary in a job doing "direct services" to sex workers I was offered back in 2007 -   they then asked me to make that statement about "outlawing sex work" as well as calling out all sex work as "rape" we needed to "all be rescued from".  I refused to make these statements and the backlash ensued.  

One that included us in their attacks Melissa because our group has never ever turned their back onto men, minorities, the LGBT communities, nor the transgenders despite their best efforts to try and stamp out any group who did with the TVRA revisions of 2002 by cutting off funding to any group who wouldn't sign that "prostitution clause".  Which is another reason why we stuck to referring to this community as a "sex industry" rather than just that of "prostitutes" because as you know many can be employed in this industry who are not offering intercourse for money such as web cam performers to name just one.  As you know, web cam performers can be just as targeted for abuse and exploitation as "prostitutes".  That's why we wouldn't limit the discussion to just "prostitutes".  

The "prostitution clause" mind you written by Randall Tobias.  A man whose name Jeane Palfrey, the D.C. Madam, died trying to break to the public not because he was a "john" but for what he was doing with the prostitution clause AND in light of information she had planned on giving to the ethics commission had she lived to testify there.  Jeanne was not only a member of SWA, but her and I spoke daily for years before her murder.  

I also had evidence it was a murder and why it was a murder which had to be blocked from appearing in the press when she was murdered in 2009 just as the media had tried at first to suppress even Randall's name from being validated as even being in her phone logs.  

All the more reason why certain people wanted me shut up Melissa.  We were achieving a lot of ground in the sex worker movement until her murder in 2009 proving there was a conspiracy afoot to try and cut off services to the LGBT and transgender communities using this revision as one means to accomplish this, as well as why "johns" were being so heavily "criminalized" as they are now to also silence them in the media. 

Pretty serious campaigns if you've seen this Sean Saxon case out of Denver I should add where he got socked with a two million dollar judgment against him as a "john" charging him with a crime for even talking about going to the police with information he had.  Again, don't just so quickly to react to what stories "appear" to be.

I say that because I've been documenting now YEARS of FAKE articles, interviews, documentaries, films, websites, TV shows, even so called "reality series" all demonizing Craigslist or Backpage as the "cause" of sex trafficking falsely that reached such a critical point in my opinion with the series "8 Minutes" i served them with a legal notice of my intent to sue them over that show.  Within 4 hours LITERALLY - the website for the show, and all shows, were taken off the internet.  

A fact recorded by Buzzfeed at first who noticed this.  Then 8 hours after getting my legal notice they had released a press statement the show had been "canceled".  Within 12 hours a completely fabricated story was being put together on to CNN where some of the actors were so badly prepared they kept forgetting their own stories - you'll see what I mean if you get a chance to catch the "Truth about 8 Minutes" show sometime how "Dlita Miller" kept forgetting her own story on the show she was such a bad actress.

Why all that to cover up the real reason the show as being canceled as being in response to my legal notice?   I'll show you why - to try and avoid this from happening - http://variety.com/2015/film/news/ryan-kavanaugh-lawsuit-relativity-fraud-1201548076/  A lot of money, including lawsuits and even federal legislation were riding on the negative portrayals of Backpage as being "real" was involved with that show.  The last thing Relativity Media wanted as me filing an action proving the show was in fact "faked" nor why.  

A show that totally promoted the idea we as sex workers across the board as an industry needed "saving" by the way.  A show where the legal notice I served upon Relativity Media that I believe is why they yanked it off the air in response to this notice was because i had threatened to file what's called a "defamacast" class action against them on behalf of not only sex workers but also sex trafficking victims as well being as I'm both myself personally.  

Also as an "expert" who has spoken to more of each than anyone else in this dog fight being as I've now personally answered over 500,000 phone calls over 30 years on our hotline - something not you, Janet, nor even Bradley Myles can boast that experience first hand with others who are true life real sex workers and sex trafficking victims domestically.  I said in my notice that the show was "improperly portraying sex workers as being all victims" while on the other hand also "falsely portraying sex trafficking victims as operating out of Backpage which was not true either".  

As well as stating that "true life real sex trafficking victim rescue operations are not done by "sting" operations set up off Backpage either as no sex trafficking operation I've ever dealt with or even heard operates  in the manner being portrayed on their scripted staged show falsely representing itself to be a "reality" show designed to mislead the public and con people out of money".  

So Melissa - I also invite you to please consider checking this information out, and also calling me sometime personally.  Love to talk to you.  Now you've seen how these people try to alter one's words - maybe you'll understand better where I'm coming from and what these same people did to my voice, and that of the many SWA members our group represents across this country, into Canada, and also in other countries where sex work is legal.  Thanks again for considering this - Jody 

Dear Janet - just found your email and decided to write after I heard about how your words were altered, even erased, without your consent on social media today.  

That's why I thought I'd reach out - because now you have witnessed and experienced for yourself on a different scale how these people "operate".  Only with our work they've gone to way greater lengths than to simply alter our statements connected to the March.

In fact, when these same powers that be realized back in 2007 that we weren't going to shut up about our true feelings our members of www.sexworkersanonymous.com were expressing which contradicted what "they" wanted us to say to support their agenda - they started doing everything in their power to wipe us out completely from even the very involvement in a sex worker movement we had a HUGE part of dating back to the 1980's when it was REALLY tough then to not only have female sex workers' voices heard - but entirely IMPOSSIBLE for that of transgender voices to be heard.  

I say that because in 1987 the hotline and program we created was one that not only was for females, for sex workers, but also for those of male, transgender and the LGBT people who comprise all parts of the sex industry.  To show you how revolutionary we were - we created the program originally as "Prostitutes Anonymous".  

Why?  To go in the gate grabbing those who had been convicted of prostitution charges by LAPD and to get them released from jail into our custody through the first diversion and alternative sentencing program we had put together which within our first 30 days we had over 400 transgenders, 100 male pimps and 1800 female prostitutes released from the LA jails in 1987.  Because no shelters would provide services to the transgender males, through then mayor Tom Bradley, he found them a house which was turned into the first program for transgender male sex workers.  Only we couldn't call it that directly back then or it would have been fire bombed - but in reality that's what the house was.  

Our program also created the first programs for transgender sex workers WITHIN the jails and prisons.  We did this for a few reasons not so obvious at first.  First, as you can imagine male transgender sex workers on hormones were being denied their hormones by the jails/prisons.  They were also considered "discretionary" by the insurance companies and within the jails, prisons, and halfway houses transgender prostitutes were having to be a part of.  

Access to getting them proper health care and medications were being denied to them.  We found we couldn't even get visitors in to check on them to make sure they were even okay once on the "inside" of these jails, sober living homes, halfway houses, etc.  

We found there were some "loopholes" which allowed that incarcerated inmates could not be denied visits from people such as their (1) attorney, their (2) priest or minister, and/or (3) a 12 step program sponsor.  In fact, many jails and prisons can't legally operate without proper licensing which requires the presence of at least 1 to 2 forms of 12 step meetings.  Inmates are also allowed to keep literature, and/or letters from their attorney, spiritual advisor OR also their "12 step sponsors".  

Now finding these loopholes allowed us to start bringing our 12 step meetings into some of the jails/prisons starting in Los Angeles again in 1987.  This allowed us to check in with our males, our transgender, and our LGBT members of the sex industry on the inside of these facilities who were there because of other charges other than prostitution for which we couldn't arrange an early release for them.  These weekly "meetings" were mostly to check up on everyone on the inside to make sure they were okay, they were being allowed their phone calls, given their commissary, talked to their attorney's, and other "check in's" we'd do while there.

Including demanding to see them physically if we were told they were in "isolation".  This allowed us to question their medical care to make sure they were receiving what they needed, give them any mail they might not have received otherwise, deliver communications, and assist them with getting an early release and re-introduction back into the community.

You have to realize not every transgender sex worker on the inside of a jail is a 'drug addict" or "alcoholic".  So many of the privileges these 12 step programs offer to the addict/alcoholic was not afforded the sex workers who didn't have this disease.  Meaning many couldn't have someone check on them, arrange for an early release, help them find housing, work on their visa's, etc.  However, by bringing into the jails/prisons our 12 step program we were able to make sure as many of these amenities and resources as we could to the LGBT, male and transgender sex workers in a way not done otherwise back then.  In fact, I have an early interview with one of our members, Joy, who is an African American transgender from found our program while in custody - http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk/2013/03/14/transgender-hiv-trafficking-survivor-speaks

So you'll notice we got ourselves wiped right on out of the whole event entirely.  You at least just found some of your words erased - while we ourselves as a group were erased right out of the entire scene.  Trust me - they've been working on shutting us up for some time now.  But in trying to explain this and why and how to many who haven't seen it - we just come off sounding "crazy".

So when I saw you have now seen this with your own eyes as they did this to you - well that's how they started with us at a press conference we were giving in 2007.  When I refused to mouth the words these people wanted me to say to the press who came to hear our words  - the woman doing the organizing of this event took individual reporters out into the hallway and said we felt this way against our knowledge and wishes.

Of course spurring on a huge warfare that ensued from sex workers who felt we had "betrayed" them by the false statement made by Melissa Farley that we "wanted to abolish sex work" which we didn't say, don't believe, nor do we want.  When I found out what she'd done, I made an immediate retraction and published a statement we were breaking from this woman, why, and that we were not going to have one other thing to do with her.  

Statements we issued to sex industry blogs standard in the field at that time such as "Tits & Sass" who published the story, about also news of our breaking away from her, and that we were forming our own group who wasn't going to say such things as "rescue" and/or "call to outlaw the sex industry" as she had tried to put those words in our mouths.  Well blogs such as "Tits & Sass" did such a great job putting out the "word" on her that no other sex worker would grant her an interview after that news broke.  

Meaning she had to launch a counter-move.  One that involved taking over the Tits & Sass blog seeing as how everyone read it within the sex industry.  Once having taken it over - these people have every single word of us scrubbed right out of their blog entirely.  Despite having contributed to it since it's launch - overnight all mention of our names even had been scrubbed clean right along with the story about what was done to us during the press conference I'm talking about.

So Janet - you see yourself what we've been up against ourselves with some of these people, and also have they have "their" people walking around everywhere because they also have their "influencers" planted around the movement as well pretending to be other than what they are to gain influence, advantage, and control.  

All making sure you don't even know we exist - let alone what our "words" are.  So I'm hoping to open up a dialogue with you further.  Please call me anytime after noon at (702) 488-1127.  Thanks Janet - Jody


ps - don't believe everything you read about us online.  As you know - not all of what's printed online is true or even what it appears to be on sight.  Thanks!
