After watching what happened to Dr. Sharon Mitchell, it was the final nail in the casket for me. If you were to sit down and make a list of people who those in the sex industry looked up to as someone they trusted to lead them, trusted had their best interests at heart, and trusted them as to things like what petitions to sign or what to vote for - I have watched as everyone on that list, including myself, have been systematically targeted.
But I've been trying to figure out why. I did some homework on what happened to Sharon after this, and it appeared she briefly had announced she was going to reopen in connection with Harmony Dust at the "I Am Treasure". Only that church outreach had been focusing on strip club outreach where women were being taken to homes ran by Mercy Ministries. Mercy Ministries got exposed as targeting these women to use them in baby mills. So bold were they that they actually would call the homes on their websites "safe houses for trafficking victims" while having adoption applications right on the same sites!
Then poof! Nothing. I can't find a trace of Sharon or AIM anywhere. People in the porn industry have been disbursed. Just as the African American community has been disbursed since the riots. I did a google search on all of the local charities right now in the south central part of Los Angeles - Watts, Compton, etc. What I found was over and over again there were Catholic Charities being run by white people. I couldn't even find a major church in those areas being run for the community by the community. Even volunteers were being shipped in from the valley - without them generating volunteers within the local community.
Why? Disbursement. Divide and conquer. A few months ago I could see the problem right now in the industry is all the glue has been removed. We need to start banding together again. So I looked up Phyllisha Anne and Amanda who are working on organizing a union right now that ties together all of the sex industry. I found smear after smear and attack on them in the social media for the industry.
Now I warned Phyllisha when I met her that once word hit that her and I were talking together about working on bringing the community together as a whole that she was bound to be getting some "friend" making a phone call putting a bug in her ear that she needed to stay away from me for some reason. I warned her about this in November.
I explained that's how they've been preventing people from creating new bonds to replace the ones that are being destroyed by these people. I had seen the same thing happen when these same people took over control of both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. They got rid of the old guard and then when the ones left over started to regroup - they would step in and break down those ties from connecting also. Always with some back door phone call from some "friend" issuing some "warning" about why they needed to "stay away from so and so".
But it appears they've already begun. I've been getting text messages from someone who appears to have Phyllisha's phone number. It's very easy to spoof text messages by the way. Here's one site of many for example which allow you to do this very thing - https://www.spoofmytextmessage.com/
I've been getting text messages that tell me "Amanda" is a separate person from "Phyllisha". Next thing I know she's sending me an email claiming I'm "not paying attention" and pissed off that I don't know these are not two separate people. What a great way to get people fighting with each other!
Here's another one of their tactics to "divide and conquer". Some of you who follow this blog know I had posted something about John Meekins in the past. Something I misunderstood about him. He reached out to me and we talked and I realized I had been misunderstanding something. So I deleted the blog post and printed a retraction.
He and I started talking. John was working as a guard at a prison where a lot of the women there were prostitutes. He told me they were getting ready to unblock the phones to allow inmates to be able to call Polaris. I had said what a great idea and could we also get them to unblock our hotline number also seeing as I actually run a program which will help these women do re-entry once released whereas Polaris just refers them to call programs like mine?
I thought we were building a great alliance. John even told me of a publisher who ships a lot of books to the inmates who I could donate some bookmarks with contact information on them for www.sexworkersanonymous.com So we had started building an alliance.
Only I stopped hearing from John for a while. Then I went online one night and he was lashing out at me pissed as all hell. I finally managed to get him calmed down and ask him why he was so angry at me. He then tells me how he got fired because of me. I was like "how?" clearly because I had no idea what he was talking about.
He then tells me he was pulled into an office of the Florida Inspector General's office who told him I had called them up and accused him of trying to pimp women out of the facility. Further he says they played him a phone call that was supposedly me calling them to make such an accusation and showed him emails I'd sent them supposedly of our conversation on Facebook.
Only I never made that call and I never sent anyone copies of any Facebook conversation. Oh course John thinks I'm lying to cover my own ass so I demanded to know the name of the person who pulled him into this back room and made such an accusation. He told me the woman's name was Cynthia Paddock.
So I wrote to this office about the fact they did this to John and blamed me and demanded to know who this "Cynthia Paddock" is. Let me show you an email I just got back from them about this:
What do I make out of this? Is it possible to disguise my voice and make a recording that someone can say is me? It's so easy it's scary especially since I know multiple people myself who sound just like me on the phone. For one my daughter. People have talked to her on the phone and they've gotten angry at me because they think it's really me they're talking to. It's not. My daughter sounds identical to me on the phone.
But she's not unique. We have two other members of SWA who sound identical to me on the phone. One of them is Karen. I have her answer the hotline a lot for me when I'm sick because people think she's me because she sounds identical to me. I don't have an accent. I was put in speech therapy as a kid to get rid of a southern accent I had. So actually my voice is pretty generic. The only thing that's really unique about my voice is my laugh. But my voice can be easily duplicated with modern technology and using people easy enough to find.
Now what do I make out of that? Is John lying? No he's pretty upset so I believe him that he got fired and I was blamed for his firing. I think that's the point. Send John off into the trafficking arena claiming I "was the one who got him fired". Great way to "divide and conquer" isn't it?
This was exactly what I was talking to Bill Margold about before he died. He was one of the few people left who seemed to be able to get two or three different factions talking to each other. Bill had agreed with me that everything was all disconnected now in the industry and we needed to find a way to rebuild the sense of "community" that the industry once had that was OUTSIDE of within the corporate culture. Sure the people at Vivid bond together as a "family". But where is the bonds OUTSIDE of that office? Where does the industry bond together from say Playboy or Hustler and Vivid? The AVN? That's another whole corporation and machine that's not the industry. It's the OWNERS of the industry - not the WORKERS.
If you watch this film with Sharon Mitchell you can see what I mean. She was a point of reference that bonded the industry together outside of one corporation/production company, as well as outside of the AVN corporate structure also. Sharon was able to shut down the whole industry with one phone call. She caught the HIV/AIDS outbreak within a matter of DAYS. This clinic had that kind of power.
Since AIM has shut down - we are in the middle of another HIV/AIDS epidemic that's struck the industry. Yes Talent has got three offices where the industry can be tested but note it's THREE. There isn't one person, nor one office, nor anything that unifies the industry through those offices and the industry sure as hell doesn't trust Michael Weinstein at the AHF.
The charges I saw coming down at these people were all bogus and manufactured - leading me to know right off the bat that I'm sure the accusation she was taking bribes was also probably manufactured. How else did anyone know about it otherwise? What happened after she started to regroup with this church outreach who was probably connected to her shutdown in the first place? Am I wrong? Look at what they did to Snowden - traitor. Look at what they did to Assange - rapist. Dave Elms - tried to murder a sex worker supposedly. It's a pattern as clear as the nose on my face that when these people want you shut down - suddenly charges are manufactured against you for something.
I've made a list of the leaders and shakers in this industry and I've seen every single one of them now targeted, shut down and most of them had some kind of criminal charges manufactured against them. It's literally so clear to me that unless I see they're coming after you then I don't believe you're of any threat to them. The question is why?
It may not seem related but it is. Watch the film "Concussion". It shows how the NFL spend a lot of money to make sure the players didn't know how badly they were injured or about traumatic brain injury. Why? Look at how much it's costing them now to pay for that damage. Dr. Amen's been setting up a whole clinic not only teaching these men how to help repair that brain damage, but also he's been able to get a lot of those men off opiate pain medications for those injuries. I watched how Dr. Omahu was also attacked the same way Dr. Sharon Mitchell was. He had to move and also you can't reach him easily because of the threats he was receiving. I saw an online campaign organized against him to try and stop the movie from being made. There was even a petition to try and get Will Smith not to be in this film because that would guarantee it would be made.
They did the same thing with the people who blew the whistle about the water quality in Michigan. In a documentary I saw on this every single person who tried to alert the public to this being a health hazard was also soon discredited, smeared, even arrested. Same as they're doing in North Dakota with those people protesting the oil pipeline there. Amy Goodman was another one arrested just trying to report on that! http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/dakota-pipeline-protests
Oh and by the way - the medical association has been coming after Dr. Amen basically calling him a "quack" just like they did John Mack with his research on people saying they were abducted for research purposes. Same as they came after Dr. Omahu trying to clam he had screwed up on some case also. I watched this film out recently about Hemingway and how they were coming after him also. Now it appeared he really was running guns to help Cuba but the point still remains that in the film it showed how the government was targeting him to press criminal charges to try and stop what he was doing. Makes me wonder if he really committed suicide now to be honest. I say that because I've seen how the ones who keep going past that point - they either wind up a "suicide" or found hung somewhere like they did Sandra Bland.
I went and did some research on if this was true by looking into Brazil where it's legal over there. I saw the same thing - their sex worker advocates and organizers have all suddenly disappeared. Websites are down. Phone numbers disconnected. I can't find a way to reach certain people. I mean what's this all about?
When I was arrested in 1984 I remember specifically asking the cop who formed a task force to get me arrested what was so fucking important about me to do this? I asked him why me when I'm surrounded by monsters who are beating, kidnapping, raping, and otherwise horribly abusing women in this industry - why are they coming after me when I'm creating a safe working environment, and setting up women I'm working with things like unemployment, disability, long term nursing home care if needed, paying their taxes, and even getting them credit ratings so they can buy a house or car one day. Why come after me when I'm doing this?
I asked him "why are you coming after me when the alternative would be for me to be standing on a corner with a needle in one arm and a pimp on the other"? He replied to me "that's just why I'm coming after you because that's where you all belong". I didn't understand that for years and years until I started really looking at what would happen if we did become an industry like any other. Meaning we could also file for unemployment benefits, workers compensation, disability, etc.?
What does that mean to the state in the terms of dollars? Imagine if a porn performer or stripper could actually qualify to get disability for 52 weeks if we went through another crash like 2008? Imagine if they get HIV/AIDS then they can qualify for vocational rehabilitation. How much does all of that cost then the state to be shelling out?
Damn that's a lot of money. Now there's laws against union busting. So anyone who tries and organize a union can't be stopped or they can step in with the lawyers. If all of this is really to try and stop a union from forming - then what would be the most effective way to stop it if you can't directly do any "union busting"?
I've watched other organizations such as PETA, NRA, the Monsanto protestors, and even the civil rights movement groups - how were they brought down? They weren't really brought down by the direct opposition as much as the "insiders". I read last night how a completely bogus group called the "Invaders" was set up to try and discredit Martin Luther King. This group gave out wooden sticks to kids and stirred them up to break store windows. Then Martin Luther King was blamed saying he was a "hypocrite" because here he was "using violence when he preaches non-violent protest".
Let's translate this into modern terms. Could there be a completely fake group out there trying to say they're trying to organize a union for sex workers while in reality NOT doing that?
How do these guys fight? For one thing, when they really want to fight you they won't print your name anywhere. Take a look at the social media for me - and you won't find my name anywhere. I saw whole sites taken down and rebuilt just to wipe out all traces of my name including the site for the show "8 Minutes". It was taken down so all traces of my comments even were removed. The Tits N Sass blog was taken down, my name white washed, and then put back up again with them featuring the leaders THESE people wanted them to feature.
So we know when they're really coming after you - they don't print your name. You won't find my name anywhere in the Review Journal post-2007 except for one quote one reporter had to slip past his publisher to get printed to show I was still there. I can't find anything like an interview with Sharon Mitchell or Dave Elms since they were both shut down. It's like they, and I, don't exist anymore.
Meaning in a way you can tell more about someone by what's NOT being said here than by what is.
