SEX TRAFFICKING AND FAKE NEWS

https://townhall.com/columnists/lizcrokin/2017/02/25/why-the-msm-is-ignoring-trumps-sex-trafficking-busts-n2290379  I had a reporter who interviewed me a few months ago ask me what I thought about this story.  

Evidently people are starting to catch on that these stories about REAL sex trafficking arrests and such are not being talked about in "major" media at all - let alone with the fervor the "fake" stories such as Samoly Mam receive.

Why?

Sheldon Adelson if you ask my opinion is part of that answer.  He's a man who had a reporter deliver a message to me in 2007 that my name, my work, the name of our group Sex Workers Anonymous, and anything to do with me was now "blacklisted" in anything he had anything to do with.  

Which is quite a lot once you start doing some research on the guy.  Including the fact he now has become an "open" owner of the Review Journal newspaper - that's the paper that's pretty much the only newspaper in all of Nevada.  I have quite a few examples by the way of completely fake articles which have been planted in the RJ if anyone is interested in knowing more about it.  

Even the whole fake story about how supposedly the "Cupcake Girls couldn't get convicted prostitutes jobs without passing a law" etc.   Which in reality was nothing more than a smoke screen to allow women who did have records for prostitution to get them waived so they could then obtain a license to work in the legal brothels of Nevada.  Now if you look at that story, as well as how they got AB67 passed in 2013 using also "fake" people, groups, stories, etc. - then you'll understand why this is a much more serious and larger story than just about "Trump".   

Noam Chomsky was quoted as saying "the free press is to democracy as a gun is to a dictator" and you need to let that sink in because I'm seeing fake lawsuits and even fake LAWS being passed using this "fake news" as the wheels on the truck here.  

Which ties into this article I found tonight https://exploitingtheniche.wordpress.com/2017/04/02/what-are-these-bots/comment-page-1/#comment-6

I found that article to be a blow by blow scenerio of everything I've had happening to me since 2009.  

I've been seeing happen in the sex trafficking ring started with when Samoly Mam was exposed as a "fake" victim of sex trafficking.  When Bill Wilson steps up and says "that's not an alcoholic" people tend to believe that accusation IF they know who Bill Wilson is.  

Which up until 2007 - people did know I was the founder of not only www.sexworkersanonymous.com which started a lot of "first's" like the first hotline for victims to call for help (www.hightechmadam.com), the first safe house for adult victims to be safe, the first alternative sentencing programs for victims so they weren't sent to jail like criminals, the first certified expert witness in "pimp brainwashing" by the FBI, and on and on - but since these "fakes" such as Samoly Mam have been rolling out one after the other I mistakenly thought "outting" them would turn the train around.  

Instead the people financing the whole thing behind them just started using celebrities to shut us up such as Jada Pinkett Smith and even Ashton Kutcher.  You have to realize when they're the ones talking to the microphone - it's NOT one of us or a REAL survivor who would be saying something DIFFERENT.  

If you don't know what I mean by that you might want to look up my open letter to Ashton in this blog I wrote after he testified at the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on sex trafficking at McCain's request.  Interesting being that anything to do with McCain blocked me from their social media after I tried to object to their "No Such Thing" campaign they funded with respect to not only sex trafficking victims - but their clear portrayal of this being a "black" thing.  Even the woman they had promoting it in the media had corn rows for God's sake!.

I went through a horrific ordeal with Buzzfeed literally doing a "1984" on me with the fake stories they were running with respect to "8 Minutes" and their related fund raiser for imaginary prostitutes literally not only silencing me about what was going on with that show, but even "morphing" stories right in front of my eyes ( saved the screen shots by the way). 

Which is why I'm not at all surprised to now see them poking fun at the idea of "fake news" because they are in fact one of the primary suppliers of fake news in my experience (with respect to sex trafficking anyway and so called "reality shows" about the subject).  https://www.buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman/the-celebtricity-network?utm_term=.maWoEkGvVd#.clPQe8G6XM

You think the hijacking of an election is all that's involved here - think again.  Our whole legal system has already been hijacked with the fake media part of the machine that's doing it.  As well as the "contrived opposition" that's not REALLY even the REAL opposition!   https://www.buzzfeed.com/craigsilverman/how-the-hyperpartisan-sausage-is-made?utm_term=.qkyaZlrVBk#.byrX9W763R


If you want to know what I mean by this - then you tell me what else is it when I can trace grant money from Swanee Hunt to SUPPOSED sex worker activist Maxine Doogan and Domina Elle - two other women who were connected not only to the faked "8 Minutes", but also the duping of President Obama when the fake survivor Lexie Smith spoke at Obama's church at the sponsoring of Shared Hope (another faked news outlet about sex trafficking by the way and Lexie is just part of their fake stories, reports, lectures, projects, etc., about sex trafficking), and even the "contrived opposition" Maxine's lawsuits were.  I mean you tell me why else her lawsuits were ONLY filed in the same counties and against the same prosecutor's that had also received grant money from Swanee Hunt unless this isn't one whole huge public manipulation project!


Why would someone suppress information about real sex trafficking and then spread fake news and information about the subject?  It's pretty obvious to me don't you agree.

Why?

Look at all the press and media we got prior to 2007 www.hightechmadam.com

Then where did it go?  We're still here.  I believe Jeane Palfrey was murdered before she could testify at the Ethics Committee about why she was a sex trafficking victim.  I also believe I'm being black listed so I don't explain what she was going to say.  

This isn't about just "saving a few hookers" nor is it about even "decriminalizing prostitution" as SWOP came in and hijacked that conversation after Robin Few, their founder, died and these other people came in and also took over that program like something right out of the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" film!

If you don't know what I mean - then why did I start all of this?  Do you really think we didn't have PIMPING laws on the books back in the 1980's?  Do you really think I started all of this and sacrificed my anonymity, my career, my marriages, everything behind trying to get PIMPING outlawed?  Yes pimping is horrible but WE HAD LAWS against it in the 1980's.  

What we didn't have, and STILL don't is the ability to even charge men like Joohoon David Lee for one.  

For another, if you want an illustration of what happened to me in 1984 and why I started this movement go and see what happened to Celeste Guap once she tried to talk about her victimization to the press.  Go on - I'll wait.  Because what you'll see is she was carted off by cops to Florida, Framed for an arrest.  Then held on a jacked up bail so they could threaten her and her family and keep her away from the press.  

You'll notice she hasn't granted an interview since right?

Take a real good look at who was TRAFFICKING her and then you'll know why these people are trying to SHUT ME UP.  As well as her.  As well as  REAL victims because they don't want you hearing that it's not PIMPS we're talking about!!!

PHYLLISHA ANNE AND "ILLEGAL RECORDINGS"

Dear APAG Guild:

I came across this statement today on your site about supposed "illegal" recordings made by Phyllisha Anne you seem not only quite upset about, but seem upset that the IEAU board isn't doing as you're wanting them to do about the situation.  http://www.apagunion.com/a-p-a-g-defines-its-position-in-regards-to-i-e-a-u-founder-phyllysha-anne-and-the-disdain-and-inactivity-of-the-i-e-a-u-president-and-its-current-board/

Now I don't know either one of you in this situation but I do feel I know enough about such things as "confidentiality" laws and illegal recordings as to inquire a little more about something you feel so strongly about you're attacking a woman who founded the union in the first place from what I understand.  My understanding, maybe I'm wrong, is that in an attempt to whitewash the connection between James Deen and the Adult Performers Advocacy Committee, who had their president turn out to be a man accused of raping at least nine women who came forward, one of who is now dead from a drug overdose which we don't know if it was an accident, a suicide or something worse - you've basically repackaged yourself as this group.

I know about these sorts of things because for years when I had been answering the only hotline in this country for years I never ever recorded a phone call.  When I launched the hotline for Prostitutes Anonymous, later renamed to Sex Workers Anonymous, we were literally the only hotline for adults to call if they got into trouble, needed help, or if they needed to reconnect to people who were also from the sex industry.

You have to realize things have changed in the world as well as the industry.  I say that because in 1987 when I launched the hotline if you were a prostitute, stripper, or porn performer you were considered by this country and law enforcement as nothing more than a "common criminal".  That was including if you didn't have one single arrest even on your record.  That included if you were strictly an exotic dancer who didn't take "tips" for the Champagne Room.  That included if you were a porn model or performer but also didn't prostitute as well.  That included if you were working at a legal establishment at a legal job.

Back then if you were beat the shit out of by your husband, not a trick, but your husband - and you tried to go to a domestic violence shelter for help they would refuse you based on just the fact you were involved in the sex industry.  You wanted to go into a detox?  Forget it.  If they even suspected you were involved in sex work - you would be denied treatment.  I literally once took a girlfriend of mine I had rescued out of a house after she had been stabbed 51 times and chained to a refrigerator after I found her and got her out of there and we didn't wait for an ambulance because those men could come back at any moment - when I took her bleeding all over me to the ER they refused to even touch her!  I had to literally threaten a medical complaint against them and a lawsuit in order to get the hospital to stitch her up.  Even then they refused to admit her after they stitched her up.

Why?  Because back then anyone in sex work was considered literally UNABLE to be a victim by virtue of prostitution being illegal.  What this meant was if you were kidnapped, beaten, raped, and otherwise violated victim services was not able to help you because you were considered a "criminal".  If a guy robbing a bank gets shot - he can't sue for "personal injury" because he was injured during the commission of a crime.  Essentially when the law considers you a "criminal" you have no rights.

Meaning if a housewife got herself beat up, raped, kidnapped, or whatever then the Office of Victim Services would step in and provide that victim with medical care, counseling, even vocational rehabilitation should the injury be so severe they couldn't work any longer, and even relocation if they needed to get physically away from their abuser in order to be safe from them.  BUT if you were a sex worker back prior to the passing of the Trafficking Act of 2000 - you would be told by Victim Services to go kick rocks basically.  Now since they wouldn't pay for these services - no one would take care of us when we were injured or in trouble.

I remember calling 911 one time when another girlfriend of mine had her pimp lock her in the house, shutting me outside of the apartment, and then I could hear him beating the shit out of her.  So I called 911 and told them she was being held inside the apartment and her "boyfriend" was beating her and I needed them to come rescue her.  You know what 911 did?  Laugh and hang up on me.  Why?  They knew the woman at this address was a prostitute - so as far as they were concerned they weren't going to risk injuring a cop to help save her.

Now this was taking into consideration it wasn't the cop fucking with us.  Because I had a cop get a thing for me who kept insisting he wanted my "services".  I refused because he was a cop and I got myself arrested for that refusal.  He threatened to keep arresting me until I gave in and agreed to see him.  Some of my girlfriends have been raped by cops, even pimped by cops.  So who do you call when the guy hurting you IS a cop?

We had no one to call for help which made a lot of women feel like they needed a pimp for protection.  But in most cases of course that guy wound up being the problem to and then who do you call?  Until the Trafficking Act of 2000 passed which allowed us to be able to be legally classified as a "victim" - we had nowhere to go for help when we got into trouble.  You would call the rape hotline and the minute they found out you were a prostitute - click.  Why?  Because their donors wouldn't donate to help "whores" who got raped because that's actually considered "theft of services" by most courts.

Now don't get me wrong - the Trafficking Act of 2000 passing didn't solve our problems by a long shot.  It was going to work well until the revision of 2003 came down where Randall Tobias gave all that money we had worked to make available to help us be handed over to the "faith based" groups who agreed to the "prostitution clause" which is they wouldn't view prostitution as part of "work" that is involved in the sex industry.  Meaning we got a long way to go because they'll now fund services for "victims" but not "sex workers".  Causing any group who wants money to help sex workers has to now fly under the radar by calling us all "victims".

But back to when I started our hotline, I got some really desperate life and death calls from people who couldn't turn to the cops for help.  Of course I advertised "all calls are confidential" and meant that.  I had the police come to me once asking about someone who called and they tried to slap me with a warrant to be me to talk to them about what she said.  I refused and because I was a 12 step group I am able to afford callers the same confidentiality as AA or NA does through laws grandfathered in by them.  But the warrant was given to me before a court ruled that anything said in an AA group is considered "privileged" so to fight it I went and got ordained as a minister.  It was quicker than trying to become a priest, doctor or lawyer overnight to be able to fight back against their demand for information.

So I take confidentiality very seriously.  But as we grew bigger and older - things started happening.  I had a call come in with respect to the Jessie Foster case where this woman was telling me information about the man she believed killed Jessie and three other prostitutes in Las Vegas.  She was in fear for her life and I frankly was also after she told me about this man.  The call was because she wanted help to get away from him and he hadn't been prosecuted for Jessie's murder according to her because he'd turned into a cop's informant.  Meaning if she tried to run she knew he might get his cop friends to help drag her back.  How did I know if everything she was telling me might not be the last thing she says on this earth?  What if I went to pick her up and she was already dead?  What would I tell the cops about what she told me?

I remember that call got me seriously thinking maybe I had better start recording the incoming calls to the hotline.  As I started getting more death threats, suicide threats, callers talking to me about children who were being trafficked, etc. I started thinking much more seriously that some of these calls needed to be recorded in case it was something literally involving saving someone's life.

When the death threat calls we started getting became more pin pointed - meaning the caller knew about members in our program, where they lived, what their real names were, etc., I started thinking even more seriously that I needed to start recording these calls to protect someone.  The last straw for me was after I saw the ACORN hidden video where this reporter pretended to be a pimp and he went into the ACORN office claiming he was a pimp and he recorded the staff there advising him how to traffick women across the Mexican border.  Of course the video made it appear the guy was actually advising him how to do this.  In reality, the man said he was stalling this guy until the police could come so the video was made out of context.

I decided to start recording calls then.  I did this only in case of an emergency - and started deleting the calls once I knew there was nothing we needed to keep the records for.  Which I did just in time because a few weeks after we started recording calls we had a completely phony person pretending to be a sex trafficking victim call us up begging for help to escape her pimp.  We arranged everything for her to be picked up at the bus stop, taken to the airport, flown to the USA into a year long program, her papers were arranged, her flight was arranged and we had everything ready to go for her - and then SHE didn't show up at the pick-up point.

Then this "catfish" victim started telling everyone on social media we had "abandoned her".  We had supposedly "promised to help her" and "left her stranded".  Only I was able to identify this woman was actually one of Swanee Hunt's minions (Swanee Hunt is the mastermind of these "end demand campaigns") who was trying to get us discredited.  We traced the IP address back to Rachel Moran.  The cell phone was registered to Rachel Moran.  The utility bills for her house were in Rachel's name.  We spoke to the local police who confirmed that was Rachel's house and she lived alone.   BECAUSE I had recorded the calls - I was able to post the tape online next to a taped interview of Rachel Moran's - and then anyone could hear this was in fact Rachel Moran yanking our chain here.

Something we never could have exposed if we hadn't of recorded those calls.  Initially I recorded them in case her pimp killed her and we needed them to prosecute him.  Then it turned out we needed them to not only show people we didn't abandon this woman - but also expose how people like Swanee Hunt operate.  Swanee funded the "Stop the Red Light" group that Rachel was a part of when this went down is why I say that about her.  So we did not let down someone calling for help as they were trying to make people believe.  I also hadn't posted the tape of a sex worker calling us - but someone PRETENDING to be one.  Had I not recorded those calls - we would not have been able to defend ourselves nor expose these tactics.

I also use these tapes to train our volunteers on our hotline.  We have pimps who routinely will send in certain women to try and find out where our groups meet.  I know the voices of these people but our newer members don't.  So I'm able to play these tapes for them to train them as to who to be aware is fishing for information.

I have no choice but to have the recorder on all the time because when you pick up the phone - by the time someone says their death threat to you - they're gone.  You don't have time to hit the record button.  You certainly aren't going to be able to ASK them for consent to record them threatening to slice your throat or the throat of one of our members.  Thanks to the recording - I was even able to record a police officer threatening us.  So that leaves having a recorder on the phone at all times in case of that type of call coming in.  Now for us, we delete every file of every call once we determine that call wasn't a threat.  They are not used in any way to violate a members' confidentiality as all calls that aren't threats like that - are immediately deleted.

Now I know that Phyllisha has gotten calls for help over the years where she's had to help people in crisis situations.  People who knew her and turned to her for help rather than calling our hotline because they didn't know us but knew her.   So on that basis alone I can understand why Phyllisha might want to record calls on her phone.

Even now I think she's right to do so because she's talked about threats she's received in the past.   So all the more reason why it would be extremely prudent and wise of her to be recording calls.  I don't know much about unions but if it's anything like I've seen in movies like "Hoffa" then I would imagine a lot of people wouldn't be too happy about her forming a union.  I know Sheldon Adelson isn't.  He's notorious for not wanting a union, and especially not wanting a sex worker union because he uses them a lot in his casino business.  Just because I think a union is a good idea for the sex industry - that man has had people threaten me, he's told me I've been "blacklisted" in any media he owns like the Review Journal, etc.  So based on just knowing how many people really don't want a union in the sex industry - frankly she'd be nuts not to be recording calls on her phone because of the threats I'm sure she's receiving for trying to bring a union to us.

Now I didn't take the decision to record all incoming calls from numbers I don't know yet lightly. First of all, I've had a gun pointed at me literally by a pimp demanding to know where someone was at who had left him and I refused to talk.  So I take the confidentiality issues here at one of life and death and I stand behind them literally with my life on the line sometimes.  Because more than once I've a pimp track me down and demand to know where someone who left them has gone to and they don't get a word out of me.

One of the fundamental reasons we choose to go with a 12 step structure is because of confidentiality.  I had a BIG  problem when I started out hotline and that was over the issue of confidentiality.  Someone running from the law could mean I get a warrant slapped on me and how am I going to answer that demand?  There are only a handful of ways you can refuse to answer a subpena or a warrant - and I'm not a priest, doctor or lawyer.  Those are the three main ones.  The other is a reporter trying to protect his sources -but even that's been challenged successfully.

Domestic violence hotline and drug treatment hotlines are covered under confidentiality laws - but the hotline for us, especially a hotline where sometimes the callers are criminals engaging in criminal activity was one I had to figure out how we can protect ourselves from being compelled to talk by a court.  In doing our legal homework we learned that AA was covered under the confidentiality laws - meaning a 12 step group is covered under the confidentiality laws.  So this was one thing we factored into the decision on how to structure our group/hotline.  If we had not gone with the 12 step structure - then we wouldn't have a leg to stand on when hit with a subpena or warrant.

Or this - that of being asked to inform on our members by the CIA, FBI, NSA, and all those alphabets because I have been asked by all of these agencies to do just that.  I have been offered a nice monthly salary to report back on what those who call us say.   I have been more than "offered" but I had a cop in Nevada actually threaten me and demand that I relay information to him on what our members were saying, who they were, who they ran with, etc.  Let me tell you - it was a day that brought back such horrible PTSD memories it took me two weeks to recuperate from the day those three cops stuck me in a car and started threatening me if I didn't report back to them everything I knew going on with our membership to them and I refused.  When Jeane Palfrey died, I had a warrant served on me to get copies of her emails and text messages which I refused also.  The cops spent a year harassing me over this refusal.

Let me explain why also this is such an important issue to me - and that's of our constitutional rights.  How can I ask someone who may be engaged in a criminal activity to call me and talk openly to me if in doing so they're incriminating themselves?   Because for me to do that would be asking them to literally violate their constitutional right not to incriminate themselves.  I mean how would it be to say "call this hotline for help and tell me about your criminal behavior and oh by the way I'm going to report this back to the cops if you do".  No - I can't do that.  So by us being covered on the confidentiality laws, recording the calls or not, they're not going anywhere - then I know callers aren't violating their right to not incriminate themselves.

However - not so with the National Trafficking Hotline.  They are NOT a 12 step group, a domestic violence hotline, a drug treatment hotline, nor a priest, doctor, lawyer, or reporter.   The person answering their hotline is not an ordained minister.  So when you are calling them and you're engaged in a criminal behavior - you are literally being asked to violate your 5th amendment right because Polaris  - very reluctantly mind you - admitted that if someone does discuss a crime with them they are obligated to report it back to law enforcement.   So actually you're less protected as to confidentiality when calling the National Trafficking Hotline than in calling us.  Besides, they get paid by the CIA to report back to them the content of their calls.   Polaris has partnered with Palantir Technologies - who crunches data for the CIA.  We however do not.  We take no money from anyone to relay any information back to anyone.  So recording or not - nothing that comes into our hotline is revealed unless there is a child involved or in immediate danger.

Which raises the question by the way about the confidentiality of what your union knows about it's members if you ask me.  I don't see anything on your site posted addressing the confidentiality issues with respect to the calls to you, your membership, etc.  So like before you get all hopped up about Phyllisha's recordings - can we talk about your confidentiality guidelines for what is said about those who call your union for help?

Now you admit she's the "founder".   But yet I don't think you really truly grasp what a target that's put on her back.  A target for which again I know she's been threatened, she's had things happen to try and intimidate her, and she's had enough things thrown at her to try and stop her from forming the union in the first place I would think you would understand why she'd have to do this to protect not only herself BUT the union.  I mean how do you know someone wouldn't accuse her of something which could have shut down the whole kit and kaboodle before it even got off the ground?  Well you wouldn't understand that position would you because you weren't the person who did found the union then are you?  Real easy to criticize how Phyllisha did what she did after she did it and then you get to run off with it now because that's what it appears like to me is what you're doing.

It's easy to criticize someone who started something you didn't start.  It's not so easy to be the one to start it.  So yes maybe she had good solid reasons to be recording calls and conversations because I'm sure she's not only received threats, but I'm also sure she's had to deal with people setting her up for things.  Things I've seen a lot of in this industry over the years.  I've seen sooooo many of us set up to shut us down over the years - she'd be a complete idiot not to be recording every word she says.

Look at what happened to Dr. Sharon Mitchell and how the AIM clinic got shut down.  When people wanted to get her clinic shut down because they wanted the control she had taken away from her as a leader in this industry - she was framed in my opinion on that bribery accusation.  Something she probably could have defended herself a little better if she had recorded all transactions.

I watched Sharnel Silvey get framed.  She was caring for an elderly man who was dying and he told her to use his card after he died to "buy herself some clothes".  Sharnel set up the first diversion and alternative sentencing program for prostitutes in northern Nevada.  She, at her own expense and at her own risk, was doing outreach within the brothels of Nevada when no one else was.  When someone needed help to get away from a pimp - we were able to go into action.  To avoid jail, keep custody of their kids, not lose their home - because of Sharnel they could go to meetings of her program instead of going to jail if convicted of prostitution charges.  She did a lot of things to help a lot of sex workers and in return she was framed.

After the man died, Joe Conforte asked Sharnel to come to Brazil and help him auction off virgins.  She refused and wanted to continue helping prostitutes in Nevada instead.  Out of nowhere the dead man's family pops up and accuses her of stealing that credit card.  Because she did not record him giving her permission to use that card - she was charged not only with theft but also elder abuse.  Because he was a senior - on her first conviction, with no prior record, she had to serve five years in prison with no parole because of that one accusation for which if she had recorded it - she'd not have gone to prison for five years.

In 2009, people were approaching all of the groups founded by ex-sex workers and offering them $10,000 in donations.  Those who took it, had the person later turn around and claim they were "conned" out of the money.  One by one by one I was getting calls from these women telling me how they had just been arrested for this supposed crime.  I asked each one of them if they had made any recordings of the conversation, was anything in writing - and not a one of them did.  A few of them went to jail and many now have records for phony accusations which were done to try and drive out groups led by actual ex-sex workers so these people funded by Swanee Hunt could instead take over who try and convince the world that porn is "evil" and should be outlawed.

So Phyllisha had better damn well be recording all of her conversations to protect her ass and that of the union.  Now I don't know what she recorded or where because I don't know her well, nor have I heard the tapes but your accusation that they were "illegal" may not be completely accurate.  There are MANY situations where it is in fact legal to record without all parties consent.  Here's a few of those exceptions talked about here - https://www.casp.net/california-anti-slapp-first-amendment-law-resources/statutes/civil-code-section-47/ and here https://oag.ca.gov/privacy/privacy-laws and there's more here - http://www.justanswer.com/law/7wbay-exceptions-ca-recorded-audio-two-party.html

Meaning it's not just flat out wrong in all cases to record someone simply because we're in California. One big exception to the law which gives her the right to record someone without their consent is if she's trying to collect evidence on something in order to put together a criminal case against someone.  No one is going to knowingly incriminate themselves - so the law does allow you to record someone who is trying to harm you.  If you think someone may be going to threaten you with harm - then yes you can record that conversation to get the threat on tape.

If you're in a public place, you have the right to photograph that person as well as record them.  I hate to say it but it's true.  If I'm out in a public restaurant it's legal to record without consent and we saw that in the Planned Parenthood video tape scandal.  Those people got the Planned Parenthood people out into a restaurant and recorded them and broadcast that tape and it was all legal because it was in a restaurant.  Why?  Because you are giving up your privacy when you're in a restaurant.  It's understood other people are going to see you and hear you so you are consenting to that by your presence.  That's how they were able to broadcast the tape - because it was recorded in a restaurant.  The privacy laws only protect you if you "take steps to make the conversation private" in other words.

What bothers me here is a union is supposed to be about protecting those in this industry yet here you are attacking Phyllisha Anne in a very public way.   So who else is going to do something you don't agree with and then you're going to blast them all over the industry?  I'm sorry but "scape goating" is the tool slave owners used to keep the slaves under control, and the Nazi's used also.  You pick out one leader, the strongest ring leader you can find and you hold them up to everyone else and you kill them, beat them, humiliate them or whatever and it sends a message to the rest - you better not piss me off or this is what I'm going to do to you.  First day in jail?  Find the biggest guy and beat the shit out of him and then everyone leaves you alone.  I'm sorry - but this is the tactic bullies use.  I sure don't see you printing any of Phyllisha's response to this accusation in the letter so you're not even allowing her to defend herself or her position here.

So frankly I don't care whether what she did was illegal or not right now.  What I do care about is that this very letter is a tactic used to try and control people.  It's to try and intimidate other people into following your lead and doing what you want them to do.  Frankly I don't think that's what the union is supposed to be about.  You took up a very public forum to attack another sex worker, someone who is trying to give workers more protection and more of a voice and you have openly attacked her.  This is a woman who has her face and name all over social media - yet I don't see even your name at the bottom of this letter so who the fuck are you even?

If you thought what she did was illegal - where's your lawsuit?  I don't see you've filed a complaint against her in a court of law.  I don't see you letting a judge decide if what she did was in fact illegal.  I don't see you filing for a TRO to stop her from recording.  So because YOU think it's illegal that's then just all there is to it?  Again - the way bullies think if you ask me.  

If you're going to attack someone - how about attacking the producers who are trying to get the performers not to wear condoms on a set when they want to use condoms?  How about attacking THAT?  How come I'm not seeing a "list of shame" of producers who have tried to bully and intimidate workers into not using condoms on a set?  I'd like to see that on this page - a list of shame for producers who have been trying to make films where performers are refused to be allowed to use condoms or protection.

How come I don't see you calling out James Deen for his rape of other women in this industry?  I've read that he raped a woman on a set anally until she was torn and was bleeding all over the set.  I've read that the crew APPLAUDED that man after he did this.  I've read one of his victims was threatened by the AVN with a breach of contract lawsuit if she didn't stand next to this man at the AVN instead of them paying for her a lawyer to sue the shit out of him for what he did to her.

Jennifer O'Hare is all over social media claiming she was raped by Dennis Hof.  I don't know if that's true or not but how come you're not talking about it?  There's rumors that Lamar might have even been deliberately drugged and then robbed of $75,000 cash at the ranch.  I don't see you addressing any of Hof's behavior in your forum here.  I mean if you're going to print rumors - how about printing those kinds of rumors?

I'm reading about women being sent home from a shoot because they were insisting they didn't want to perform without a condom.  How about calling out the producers that did this?  I do see you made a statement about Nicki Benz being abused and her 800,000 or so followers.  But frankly I think you did that because she's got over 800,000 followers and you're sucking up.   I mean you should say something - but why am I only hearing about her with all the followers?  How come I'm not hearing about those who have been hurt who have maybe 200 followers?

But what's going on in the James Deen rape accusations?  I'm not seeing a word about that anywhere on your site - but I see a whole page attacking Phyllisha Anne.

Oh and whose bright idea is it to have Melissa Hill leading your "support group" for those "out of the industry"?  Can you answer me that please?  The woman isn't "out of the industry" so how exactly is that supposed to work?  That is no different in my opinion than holding an AA meeting in a bar lead by the bartender who had a drink right before the meeting.  I mean what in the hell is that about?  I joined a "support group" once for ex-sex workers in 1986 called Catharsis.  Everyone in that group was completely fucked up and no one knew what the hell was wrong.

Are you people aware there's a very real thing that for lack of an official name we call it "post prostitution syndrome".  Here's a tape we have online about PPS to explain more about it - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cO-AVboR0eE  I interviewed over 4,000 ex-sex workers from all over the world, men and women, illegal and legal - and in almost every single case, over 90% of those ex-sex workers had very common symptoms.  Here - read the words of Airforce Amy describe what she went through when she tried to simply quit the industry "cold turkey" without proper after care:






Notice Amy talked about "being so depressed she turned to drugs and alcohol" because of the severe depression she went through.  But Melissa Hill wouldn't know about this wall sex workers hit when quitting the industry entirely because she's still working in the industry.  She hasn't gone off to be a doctor or lawyer or something removed from the whole industry.  Belle Knox wrote openly about the suicidal depression she went through when people found out she was in porn.  That's just found out she was in porn.  Other young women have left suicide notes about killing themselves because they couldn't cope with the stigma of people knowing they'd been in porn.

Are you aware that the FBI has changed their whole undercover policy ever since the first FBI agent went undercover into the porn industry?  He went undercover for two years and came out of the industry so mentally fucked up they now revised their own policy to not leave an agent in the industry more than six months - and then after they come out they get special aftercare.

Do you realize that people who are just EXPOSED to the porn industry sometimes need professional psychological treatment?  Here read this about a special therapy system that's been set up for agents who are just EXPOSED to our industry without actually working in it and they get fucked up behind it and need help - http://unh.edu/ccrc/pdf/Law%20Enforcement%20Work%20Exposure%20to%20CP.pdf

So let me get this straight - you have someone who is not out of the business at all yet leading your support group for people who have left the industry?  Soldiers coming back from Iraq need PTSD treatment just as they did during Vietnam.  It's not even all about war as much as it is about adjustment back to the American way of life after having been in another country.  It's about culture shock and believe me leaving the porn industry and going into the world outside of the industry is a huge culture-shock.  When I was on probation and had to stay out of the industry - I had to learn how to not only dress differently, talk differently, but even how to WALK differently!

So are you really going to tell me that there isn't a huge adjustment process that happens when someone leaves the industry totally when for 30 years now I've been seeing people going through the exiting process and I have never ever ever seen someone just up and walk out of this industry who doesn't go through a HUGE adjustment crisis.

Are you even preparing people for that wall they're going to hit when they do quit the industry?  Now before a whole bunch of people STILL IN THE INDUSTRY want to climb down my throat and claim that this isn't true - save it.  You go and quit this business for longer than 24 hours and then you come back and tell me if it was just a breeze and you had no problems at all walking away from this culture.  This is one of the things these trafficking people have completely fucked up is they're making it appear that the only people who have problems and need help to adjust afterwards from sex work are trafficking victims and I'm sorry but that's not the case.

And I don't mean someone who quit the business but then is getting loaded every day either.  Sure I have met PLENTY of people who tell me "oh yeah I quit the industry and I haven't had one problem adjusting" while they're sitting there smoking meth, popping pills, or they're on five different medications while smoking medical marijuana.   I don't mean those who quit the industry but are stoned or drugged out of their minds so they wouldn't know a feeling if it bit them.  I mean quit the business entirely while also not being in a drugged state - then come tell me it's all a piece of cake to just walk out of this industry after it's been your identity for some years.

Why am I bitching about this?  Because one of the reasons I believe there's a need for the union is the very basic fact that those who do leave this industry need help going through that adjustment.  They need exit services.  Whether they were trafficking victims or not, whether they were addicts or not, whether they were sexually abused or not - there are those who aren't any of the above who still need help to go through the exiting process.  They may need vocational rehabilitation which I would like to see the union lobby the state to start doing something about this.

Think this isn't relevant?  You go spend 20 years working at a legal brothel and then one day you get told you're HIV/AIDS positive and suddenly your license is revoked.  Go on - put yourself in that person's shoes right now.  Imagine you just got told you're positive and your license to work as a prostitute is now revoked.  That's it.  No warning.  No pension.  No retirement plan.  No IRA.  Now what?  What the fuck you going to do now?  

That is a fundamental purpose for the union to exist is to make those aftercare and exit services available to members.   Now how are you going to do that when you think it's as simple as having Melissa Hill run a "support group" and that's it?  If you ask me the very fact you're acting like that's all there is is because whoever is running things over there at APAG now isn't Phyllisha.  Phyllisha is a sex worker.  She knows at the bottom of her gut that if she got mangled by a bus accident tomorrow, or became a victim of a horrible fire which disfigured her, or if she God forbid came down with HIV/AIDS - then now what?  What is she going to do?  She's planning on being in this industry the rest of her life.  I doubt she's got a back-up plan or a nursing degree or something to fall back on.  Even if she did have a nursing degree - what if the bus accident cut off one of her legs?  Then what?

Would vocational rehabilitation pay to retrain her to do something other than be in sex work?  I'm sorry but this is a fundamental issue for sex workers and where the union should be thinking about those very things.  So I'm actually deeply offended by this group making it appear that it's not a big issue when it's a CORE issue for why the union should exist - and that's to make sure employers in this industry realize that our careers are like that of dancers and athletes - it came be a short-lived one and one for which special considerations need to be built into the profession and that's where the union is supposed to be addressing those needs.

Which makes me think who is behind this APAG right now might be more for the "owners" than the "workers" in terms like that.  I mean question - how many who are back there are just workers themselves?  I'm asking because I also don't see a list of your officers on your website like I see on the IEAU website.    I see the board of IEAU is that of sex workers - not producers, not owners of companies, not people like Dennis Hof who owns a couple of ranches, not the owner of a string of strip clubs - but workers.  Workers who know the needs of the workers they're representing and defending and trying to make the field a better place for them.

So who exactly are you back there?  What are your roles within the industry?  How much do you know about how absolutely impossible it is to leave the industry should you have to suddenly due to injury or illness?  Christy Mack was horribly beaten.  After she announced she was staying in the industry.

However, she could.  What if War Machine, God forbid, but what if he had poured gasoline on her and lit her on fire as some women have had done to them in this industry?  What if she was so disfigured she couldn't possibly work in this industry again?  I assure you she would need special services to exit this industry even without being injured because there is a study out showing that literally 98% of those who try and leave sex work without the proper after-care fail.  They get clinically depressed, turn to drugs and/or alcohol, or even compulsive gambling as one study talked about, and they can't make the transition.

Those who can't go back wind up on SSI or welfare.  I know because 2/3 of the members of SWA have some kind of autoimmune disease they got from the industry and they're now living on SSI including myself.  I got chronic fatigue syndrome when it first hit the sex industry in the 1980's.  I spent my first year out of sex work laying on my couch because I was too tired to get up and go to bed.

But back to who are you over there running this "union" exactly?  I've learned how to tell red flags about abusers and exploiters and this form of intimidation and control you're exhibiting here is one of them.  You are attacking another member of the industry, a woman who created this very organization according to you out of nothing, at her own expense from what I understand, but I don't see a copy of a lawsuit along with it.

I also happen to know you're wrong - there ARE exceptions to when you can legally record someone in California and I don't see a word of that mentioned here meaning you're not only bullying, shaming, and intimidating another woman in this industry - but you're also misleading your readers and members by falsely claiming there are no exceptions to that rule.

Meaning you're lying to the industry in this letter.  That's all I got to know about the situation right here.  There are situations where one can legally record conversations in California and you aren't mentioning that at all here.  

What's worse is I don't even see a signature at the bottom as to who wrote this attack and misleading accusation.


To top it off, you're attacking her board for not "muzzling" Phyllisha simply because you asked them to.  Again - did you serve anyone with any legal papers?  Was a formal legal demand letter sent to anyone there at the  IEAU?  Can you please tell me what the other board members at the  IEAU have to do with what Phyllisha does?  What exactly is it you're calling them out for not doing?  Not what exactly?

Meaning you're not just attacking Phyllisha - you're attacking the whole board of IEAU over this something you say is illegal but I don't see you filing any legal papers about it.  I mean is this how you're going to represent your members?

Shame on you.

I don't see a signature here but I'm willing to lay down a $100 bet that whoever wrote this letter was a man.  Yet another man beating up on a woman in this industry and shaming her for protecting herself, and her baby, and then the other women who are standing behind her.   Which I'm sorry but I think that it's things like that why the union was started in the first place.  Meaning from where I'm standing it looks like some men came in and took this group away from Phyllisha and now they're trying to cover up what they did by victim blaming her.

If I'm wrong - then please please how about a statement about how exactly it was you're now running APAG and Phyllisha got shut out?  I mean I saw shit like this when the white man comes into America and kicks out the native American's for being "on his land".  Then I see all these westerns growing up where the white man is protecting himself from the "savage indian attacks" without addressing that it's the Indians who were the ones being ran off their land not the other way around.   So please - how about more of an explanation of how this split exactly took place because that's what this letter looks like to me - the white man talking about the horrible indians who attacked them!

Oh yes I know the tactics well.  I remember one time kicking the ass of a pimp who was beating up on my girlfriend and when the cops came he was crying how I beat the shit out of him.  I remember how my ex-husband went around all of our friends crying how "mean I was for taking his baby and leaving him" but of course leaving out of that whole conversation I did so after he broke down my front door and threatened to kill my daughter and myself.  That's what this looks like to me - so please - love to hear your side of what the break was about.

Along with a copy of the lawsuit against Phyllisha for these illegal recordings.  If you're not going to file a lawsuit then I think you need to retract that letter attacking other women in this industry while claiming you're there to represent their needs.  Also from a legal viewpoint.  Because I don't see the words "in my opinion" in these accusations.  Plus you're wrong - there ARE exceptions to the tape recording laws in California.  So what I see you're doing is defaming Phyllisha and even the IEAU which could also be considered a form of "economic interference".  In other words, you wouldn't be trying to steer prospective members towards your group over hers with these accusations now would you because that is also a crime.

You know how to reach me - so please enlighten me as to who is exactly the person who wrote this letter and what type of work they do in this industry?

THIS FILM SUMS UP THE SEX TRAFFICKING MOVEMENT STEP BY STEP

http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/toxic-hot-seat  There is a link on here to watch this film.  If you watch it - be prepared to see the absolute correlations to the sex trafficking industry from the phony groups set up to front for the chemical industry and lobbyists, to the grant making in low income minority neighborhoods to get them to form groups to push your agenda for you.

I can't tell you how many survivors I've heard say the NEW industry has "turned them into token speakers" where they're asked to speak but not allowed to be involved in the planning or the project in any fashion.  When I saw the burn victim in this show they paraded around to try and push the chemical industries agenda as their "token victim" - I just saw the absolute connections here just step by step word for word.

If you want to see what's happening right now in the so called "trafficking movement" - then you MUST see this film and "Poverty Inc".  Then you'll see what's going on here.

The "Poverty Inc" people who can't go around raising money for the "starving fly covered African children" any longer have latched onto this field for one.

For another, those wanting to get prostitution legalized have also latched onto this field as a way of getting not only it legalized - but to make darn sure no one butts around for victims in their companies.  For example, WHY hasn't Polaris pushed to get their signs into the Nevada legal brothels yet?  They got prostitution outlawed in Rhode Island where it was decriminalized - but for Nevada brothels - NOTHING.

You watch these films - and you're hip to the games going on in how this movement has gotten itself hijacked out from under those very people who started it - the victims' themselves.

ONLINE 'INFLUENCERS'

https://survivorsvoiceaustralia.com/2016/04/10/government-agents-infiltrate-survivor-forums-and-online-groups/

I've spoken here before about the group of 'influencers" I've seen come in and take over both sides of the issue with respect to prostitution and sex trafficking since 2013.   Seems I'm not the only one who has noticed this type of activity.

http://felicityleeig.blogspot.com/

I've also spoken about how there are people who are pretending to be me online, be our group, even be our group's founder, online falsely before to mislead people as to who I, and our group, is about.  Seems it's quite common within the child abuse arena.

MONOPOLY? SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE?

I believe I'm dealing with a "monopoly".  Let me start with Arizona:

Since this information has been released to the press - I'm not breaking any confidences here speaking about Kathleen Mitchell and Prostitutes Anonymous out of Arizona.  I received a letter from her from jail asking for help to stop being arrested over and over again for prostitution from Kathleen about 1989.  I sent her our "jail step study" program which we send to inmates to let them "work their steps" from jail, along with our 1st edition "Recovery Guide" as a donation.  In other words, she didn't pay anything for these items.

She was released about 1990 and asked me "now what?"  We had no chapter of "Prostitutes Anonymous" (as we were originally called back then although we changed our name in 1995 to "Sex Workers Anonymous").  Not really having the ability to do street outreach by herself, I suggested she do what I did to start out in Los Angeles back in 1987 - start with the local jail.  In 1990, she started a Prostitutes Anonymous meeting in the Durango Jail.

By 1991, she told me that she had gotten a lot of support and founded a residential program named "Dignity".  Which was awesome as when I would hear of women anywhere in the country who needed residential placement to get away from their pimp, or traffickers, I would get them down to either Dignity, or other locations we used, depending on how much security the person needed.  Here's an article about Kathleen and this work - http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/ex-prostitutes-who-proselytize-  6431069  Notice the article is dated the year 2000 - which is the same year as the passing of the "Trafficking Act of 2000" which gave sex trafficking of American victims federal recognition.

If you don't know what "federal recognition" means think of it this way.  If you're a bunch of native Americans, you're just a bunch of native Americans.

But if you want to be a federally recognized tribe to do things like start a reservation or build a casino - then you need "federal recognition".  The reason why the film "Deep Throat" was charged with obscenity back in the 1970's, is because the idea of an American woman like Linda Lovelace being "trafficked" didn't exist within our legal, or cultural, system of belief back then.

While I understand there was some talk about "white slavery" and "abolishment" going on up until 1977 in San Francisco, it had died out by 1980 when Linda stepped up to reveal about herself being trafficked in connection with Chuck Traynor, her husband, who forced her to appear in this mob financed film.

Meaning when I stepped up on that first talk show stage in 1987 calling out that this kind of thing was "real" and that our legal, and mental health, system needed to change to recognize these American victims, and launched the first hotline for them to call for help, or anyone who wanted to leave the sex industry for any reason to call for help to do so, along with the first alternative to sentencing option which was our 12 step program, then I was founding the modern day sex trafficking movement.

Kathleen started our Phoenix chapter of "Prostitutes Anonymous", and then a residential program after she achieved her own recovery through our program.  I want you to notice in this article how Kathleen had no problem at all using our name in the year 2000 during the time this Trafficking Act was being passed.  Meaning there was also no federal money available for this work prior to the year 2000.  (I need to also add here I never received one penny from Kathleen, Dignity, Catholic Charities, or anyone from Arizona from the time Kathleen got her first book from us until today.)

If you'd like to hear the way it was in Phoenix in the early 1990's - here is a tape of one of those early members remembering Kathleen.  This tape also discusses what happened after Project Rose came into Phoenix which refused any and all participation on our part, as well as any communication with our head office in any way.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_TD_X3uOiA  As a matter of fact, when Catholic Charities took over Dignity so Kathleen could retire after 20 years of service, it was the same year Project Rose launched in Phoenix.  So what this woman is describing is when these groups basically took over what we had started and ran for 20 years.

Now, when Project Rose came to town and Catholic Charities took over Dignity, I had already started the process of getting a woman away from her pimp in Las Vegas.  The woman was offered the chance to join our program OR to take six months in jail.  Because her pimp didn't want us helping her she opted for jail.  I then called the pimp on the phone and had a nice "chat" with the man about how this wasn't a good idea.  I then asked him if he would allow us to have this one and tell her it was okay with him to come into our program instead of the Clark County Jail.  He agreed and called her to tell her it was okay to come with us.

The judge wanted her in a residential program, not outpatient in Las Vegas.  The Mary Magdalene Project was full, but Dignity said they had a bed.  I had not worked with Catholic Charities since Kathleen retired, so I wanted to see how things would be under the new regime.  I spoke to the judge, the proseutor, and the public defender, as well as the woman's parents, and everyone was on the same page she was to be released to her parents.  Then brought to meet for a "debriefing" about what she was about to enter in the way of recovery along with informing her what her pimp and I had discussed about he was willing to let her go.  Only as I was waiting for her to arrive at my house after being released, I heard she had been checked into the Dignity Project.  I asked the mother if she had at least taken the battery out of the woman's phone so her pimp wouldn't know where she was as I had asked.  She said "no" she didn't think it was "important" to not give her pimp a means to trace her as I had instructed.  I was also told Dignity allowed to keep the phone, and did not remove her battery either.  

I then called the Dignity Project and said I had told the woman I was supposed to meet with her and since she had already left Las Vegas, then I would come down there to speak to her.  Catholic Charities told me that would be impossible.  I asked why.  They said that they couldn't allow me to speak to any of their clients or staff.  I asked why.  They said they would "lose their funding if they spoke to me".  I then asked if they wanted to keep this meeting confidential then which would be fine with me.  They said they "could not risk word leaking out they had even met with me or they would lose their funding".  Since I had been training their outreach staff, and training the people running our meetings, for 20 years now, I asked what was going to happen to my training of their people.  I was told "oh no we can't let you train anyone anymore".

When I asked why I was told "because then it would look like we don't know what we're doing and we can't risk losing donors who think we don't know our job".  I mentioned ALL professionals get continuing education and considering I was part of what created this whole program she was now sitting in didn't she think continuing education would be the sign of a true professional?  She said "I can't risk anyone hearing that I'm even speaking to you or we're risking our jobs and funding.  As a matter of fact, we will no longer be even holding Prostitutes Anonymous meetings here any longer.  Nor will we be needing anymore of your 'Recovery Guides'.  We need to break off all ties here now.

When I reminded her that she was now in possession of a woman I had negotiated with the court to be there under my word with them and with this woman - I said that statement kind of represented a problem.  Especially when I had promised her family she would be supported during her stay there by our program.  The woman at Catholic Charities just cut me off at that point, and then refused all future contact.  I had no choice then but to notify the court, and the woman's family, that I was not going to be responsible for the outcome of this case being I was now having our program, and it's resources of other local survivors in the Phoenix area, excluded.  I would also like to add that she supposedly had the pimp pick her up and leave Dignity about three days later.  

Not long after this, I started getting phone calls from women complaining about the "Prostitutes Anonymous meetings".  I told them I had been told the meetings had been discontinued.  They told me "oh no - they're still going on and still passing the basket too".  Which surprised me because our meetings are not supposed to be passing the basket in case newcomers who are still engaged in prostitution put money in the basket which then makes us guilty of a felony of "receiving earnings from a prostitute", not to mention then I have tax liability being that I'm not an incorporated nonprofit with tax exempt status.  That money still legally counts as our income I'm responsible for.  So I started trying to reach anyone at Catholic Charities to discuss what I was hearing - to get no response.

Not long after this is when Beth Jacobs started contacting our members in Arizona, and other locations online, to inform them I was "pimping" in the active sense, that I was "dangerous", and threatening them if they didn't want to be "shunned out of the trafficking community they needed to break all ties with us completely".  These attacks were done to our members, our associates, our partners, professionals we worked with who provided our members with free counseling, treatment programs who gave our members free scholarships for drug treatment, employers who had been giving our members jobs, even locations where we were holding meetings were told that we were "dangerous" and that I was actively involved in trafficking.

I have screen shots from many sources who forwarded these threats and false accusations slandering me, our 12 step program, our radio show, and our hotline.  Yes even our radio show featuring interviews from members and survivors she was calling up people ranting on and on according to the caller about how "unprofessional" it was of me to be recording with the sound of my dogs in the background.  I guess she didn't get the memo I was receiving no money for that program, nor do I get any salary, grants, or funding, for anything I do including that radio show at www.leavingtheliferadio.com  So no I was not "being a professional" because I wasn't being paid!

On top of this, I'm having our older members who had been going to these meetings for years and years at Dignity calling me up to say they're "leaving town".  When I asked why they said they were "unwelcome", they had been fired, they couldn't find work, they were being shunned by people within the trafficking community, within the shelters, the drug treatment programs, even at the local university.  Basically I was hearing from our older members who had come in through our program and now had double digits years in recovery they couldn't find work and no longer felt welcome.

More disturbing was the calls coming in claiming they were being targeted by the authorities to take their children.  I was told Arizona does not need a warrant to have CPS remove their children.  I'm getting frantic panicked calls from women telling me they were being hauled in off just walking down the street (like Monica Jones' story), then threatened with their husband being arrested as their pimp, and their children taken away from them, if they don't agree to go to these classes set up through Project Rose.  (I'm sure it's a complete coincidence that StreetLight USA was now taking in children and paying for it through the foster care system these women were saying were being taken from them without a warrant, without probable cause - leaving them in a position to hire an attorney or forfeit their children.  Something a little hard to do WITHOUT being in prostitution I'd like to add.)

They tell me Beth Jacobs is representing to be their social worker through Mojave Counseling Center.  Only I check with the state and find that at that time, 2012-13 Beth wasn't licensed for anything, and neither was the Mojave Counseling Center.  Now the Mojave Counseling Center did get shut down for that reason, but regrouped and then did obtain licensing and reopened.  But that didn't alter I was hearing these people were being sent to counseling with Beth, and they also all reported being referred to another doctor who was giving them multiple psychiatric medications without running any medical tests to see if these pills were properly warranted.   Beth Jacobs also had a Facebook page up for Willow Way for years - but the state of Arizona says she wasn't a nonprofit until 2014.

I invite you to look at the Board of Willow Way now they are a corporation.  http://ecorp.azcc.gov/Details/Corp?corpId=%2019222030 On this board also is Aimee Graves https://www.linkedin.com/in/aimeegraves, Aimie is the "Director of Children and Family Services, Councilman Steve Kolachik https://www.tucsonaz.gov/ward-6, Donna Haas, a drug and alcohol counselor http://azbbhe.us/ProDetail.asp?ProfID=34791 and Lynn Wallasky from the Green Valley Methodist Church http://www.gvccumc.org/events.html   Donna Haas is also a member of the Brandeis National Committee Brandeis National Committee is dedicated to providing philanthropic support to Brandeis University, a distinguished liberal arts and research university founded by the American Jewish community.

Project Rose was started by Dominque Roe-Sepowitz which we were excluded from which operated out of the Dignity Project.  She is also on the Arizona Human Trafficking Council with the Govenor's Office of Youth, Faith & Family - http://endsextrafficking.az.gov/goyff/meeting-body/arizona-human-trafficking-council-was-established-2014-develop-comprehensive-and  This did not stop her however from sending in grant applications we saw showing Project Rose was "utilizing a 12 step program", i.e., OURS to get her money.

Note the Governor's Office of Youth, Faith & Family is partners with Polaris, Shared Hope,  the McCain Institute, the Blue Campaign, the National Center for Missing Children, and the Arizona Human Trafficking Council.  http://endsextrafficking.az.gov/human-trafficking/outreach  This is a list of all of the offices under the Governor - http://azdirect.azdoa.gov/all.aspx

Cindy McCain is with the McCain Institute who created the "No Such Thing" campaign we were also excluded from - http://endsextrafficking.az.gov/sites/default/files/roster_no_contact.pdf  She is also a board member of this Governor's Office on Youth, Faith & Family.  Two things we also have been excluded from.   Not surprised our hotline wasn't included in this joint effort of the McCain Institute, Polaris & Clear Channel either.  https://www.mccaininstitute.org/newsroom/press-releases/mccain-institute-polaris-and-clear-channel-outdoor-expand-anti-human-traffi

Wow, The McCain Institute is also involved in issues of "national security" https://www.mccaininstitute.org/programs/national-security  Impressive board members too - https://www.mccaininstitute.org/about/board-of-trustees/  Rick Shangraw who is on the board of the ASU Foundation for a New America.  https://www.mccaininstitute.org/about/board-of-trustees/rick-shangraw  Okay explains the ties from him to Dominique Roe-Sepowitz.  Josette Sheeran is with the Asia Society.  https://www.mccaininstitute.org/about/board-of-trustees/josette-sheeran

Here is a clip showing Cindy is married to John McCain - http://www.azcentral.com/news/politics/articles/20130408arizona-human-trafficking-task-force-created.html  I'd like add the note here that John McCain has testified in Congress against abortion before as a pro-life advocate, was an Arizona senator http://www.ontheissues.org/Social/John_McCain_Abortion.htm  and this shows his voting background on the issue of abortion -  something that affects young women mostly.  http://www.prochoiceamerica.org/assets/files/mccain_fact_sheet.pdf

Which might explain this interest in what's happening within the legal/medical system with respect to a young girl who are being trafficked in that pimp's regular m/o is to get their victims pregnant as early into the relationship as possible.   The first day even if they can through rape.

(Please note we are not quoted in any of these news articles above about our views on the subject despite the fact we spent 13 years going on to talk shows, tabloid shows, news shows, and even made three documentaries, and had three films made about our work raising awareness to the American public domestic sex trafficking was real and something needed to be done about it to change our legal/medical system.  I didn't see the McCain's there when I was doing this!  In fact, I created the first safe house for adults in this country I got arrested for because an angry pimp called up the police and claimed I was "running a brothel" two blocks from the police station.  You can see my clips verifying this at www.hightechmadam.com.  I created this warehouse/safehouse because no one was helping us to escape the trafficking - nor did anyone even care we were in trouble.  

NOW?   Now they care.  Now there's money and politics involved.  You know what it reminds me of?  When I was new in recovery these women used to come into the NA meetings once a month from AA.  They would wait until we got "cleaned up" and "presentable".  Then they're come lure women into AA to pair them up with the men in the Alano Clubs and AA meetings to "date".   As a result, there wasn't very many women in NA with more than 30 days clean when I was new.  When these ladies came for me I said "forget you - if I wasn't good enough for you when I was sitting here sweating, vomiting and twitching from withdrawal and sleeping in my car while turning tricks to eat - then I don't want nothing to do with you.  That's what it reminds me of - those ladies who only wanted something to do with us once we were "useful" to them.)

I'd like to reference this article about Cindy McCain speaking about not wanting to "criminalize" these girls.  http://tucson.com/news/blogs/police-beat/governor-oks-tougher-law-against-human-trafficking/article_fce7f065-a293-507f-8244-8c3cb6ee098f.html  She even says she "wants to separate them out" but "oh no let's not CALL THEM A PROSTITUTE".   So excuse me - how does she plan to SEPARATE them from other little girls if she isn't IDENTIFYING THEM?  That's one question I got.

She wants to INSTEAD "put them in child welfare agencies".  Okay second question - does that mean if you're not a "prostitute" then you go to jail?  Isn't that what was done to Latesha Clay?  Because she was identified as a "thief" instead of a "prostitute" so she gets NINE YEARS IN PRISON AS AN ADULT, but if she'd been labeled a "prostitute" she could have gone to a program like ours or Children of the Night?   http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2016/01/girl_15_sent_to_prison_for_lur.html

Now can I ask a really dumb question here?  Being that out of every single person I've ever spoken to in connection with being involved with the issue of sex trafficking since I first walked into the nightclub which was a front for laundering criminal money when I was about 18 years old, until today where I'm still involved with helping people get out, and considering how many people I've heard their story about sex trafficking, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM who has said not just that our "child welfare system failed them" but that in fact they were trafficked in some way, shape or form, WITH the involvement of not only their parents and/or guardians in charge of their care, but ALSO someone within the system whether this be a teacher, social worker, counselor, priest, minister, etc.

A system NOT following up on any of these kids the way probation can to ENFORCE they get treatment.  I've got member after member of our program telling me the person who sold them was a parent, a cop, a teacher, a social worker, a priest, someone in the military, someone in politics (like the Omaha Franklin scandal) - and THIS is who she wants to oversee these kids when even now Rep. Portman has already found kids being trafficked right out of trafficking programs and told us there is "no independent oversight"? https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/failures-in-handling-unaccompanied-migrant-minors-have-led-to-trafficking/2016/01/26/c47de164-c138-11e5-9443-7074c3645405_story.html I mean honestly - could THIS BE WHY OUR MEMBERS ARE BEING EXCLUDED FROM THE ROOMS WHERE THESE POLICIES ARE BEING MADE FOR A REASON?

Note the training for this office people receive about what trafficking is and how it operates is provided by the National Trafficking Hotline which was founded by Polaris.  http://endsextrafficking.az.gov/human-trafficking/training  Polaris whose CEO is Bradley Myles.  Bradley is the husband of Katherine Chon.  Katherine Chon is the director of the Office of Trafficking in Persons Office who gives grant money to Polaris, i.e., her husband Bradley Myles. http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/endtrafficking/about/leadership  (Not a bad gig if you can get it - have your Chinese wife hand you a couple of million bucks!)  Here is a clip about their marriage.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/weddings/on-love-katherine-chon-and-bradley-myles/2013/11/26/7bc83072-5656-11e3-8304-caf30787c0a9_story.html

International Rescue Committee has an Arizona branch also who has names on their board like JP Morgan - http://www.rescue.org/board-and-overseers  They also have received grant money from Katherine Chon.

Here is the Phoenix Council - https://www.phoenix.gov/district2/human-trafficking.  Councilman Waring seems to be on this Council.  Police Chief Bray is on his instructional video.  SAFE is a partner, who is a national partner with these agencies who include Polaris, the Salvation Army, http://www.safeactionproject.org/partners/national-partners/ and the National Trafficking Hotline.  Please note our hotline is absent.  Here is their regional partners - http://www.safeactionproject.org/partners/regional-partners/ Founding partners - http://www.safeactionproject.org/partners/founding-partners/ and Advisors http://www.safeactionproject.org/partners/safe-advisors/

The Phoenix Council is also partners with TRUST http://www.trustaz.org/trust-partners.html  Whose partners are Polaris, Shared Hope, StreetlightUSA, and others who have also refused to return any of our phone calls, or answer any of our emails or faxes EVEN when we've tried to reach out to them for help on cases that have come through our hotline needing assistance.

TRUST also partners with the University of which Dominique Roe-Sepowitz is a part of.  https://socialwork.asu.edu/  Here's her page there - https://publicservice.asu.edu/content/dominique-roe-sepowitz-0

Please also note we had a woman approach us saying she wanted to "bring back a Sex Workers Anonymous meeting like we used to have before all this came into Arizona".  So she got the materials from us to launch a meeting in Phoenix in 2015.  This woman was approached by Savannah Sanders, who graduated from the Dignity Project before Catholic Charities ended the Prostitutes Anonymous meetings.  Savannah is an open survivor of trafficking so I'm not breaking any confidences here.

However, Savannah then told this woman that if she wanted to "continue with her plan to try and launch a SWA meeting then to realize she wouldn't be able to help anyone if she was dead".  Savannah then supposedly gave her a job offer to work with her and her people where she would not "have to live in that kind of fear" if she was working "with them".  Oh before I forget, Savannah is TRUST - http://www.stopsextraffickingaz.com/savannah-sanders-s-story.html

Note this is some of their activity - http://www.abc15.com/news/local-news/investigations/feds-teaming-up-with-valley-police-to-crack-down-on-pimping-human-sex-trafficking  Seems she's working with a christian ministry to "mend the soul" of children who trafficked.  http://mendingthesoul.org/professionals-and-consuliting/request-a-speaker/speaker/savannah-sanders/

Another group is Southern Arizona Against Slavery of which Willow Way is a partner.  https://saastucson.com/links/  We also see again Jan Brewer, Governor, Streetlight USA, Sold No More and Alert which has a link that goes nowhere.  http://traffickingaz.org/

Sold No More is comprised of Grace Community Church and the Red Cross.  http://soldnomore.org/leadership/

Always is another who has Phoenix Councilman Daniel Valenzuela on their board http://alwaysaz.org/team/  Their training and statistics come to them via Polaris, Shared Hope, CAST and ATEST is appears.  https://saastucson.com/links/

Shared Hope who provided research for the Governor appears with the help of a few people listed on that directory who include the Hickey Family we see once again - http://sharedhope.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/DJP_Arizona-Field-Assessment_optimized.pdf and of course Dominique
Roe-Sepowitz.

Streetlight USA appears to have gotten a grant from the Dept. of Housing http://streetlightusa.org/our-history/, served on Governor Brewer's task force, and appears to get tax credit for foster kids.  This might explain why they called me up in 2013 asking me to send them referrals to house in their program.  I told them I've never met them and I refer all our juvenile calls to Children of the Night as I've known Lois and worked with them since 1979 when they first opened.   It appears the local university set down their nutritional program for their residents who would be Dominque Roe-Sepowitz related most likely.   Their Board of Directors don't appear to be listed on their site for some strange reason.  http://streetlightusa.org/leadership/

(By the way, I've caught Streetlight USA MORE THAN ONCE using the name "Prostitutes Anonymous" in their fund raising, their websites, and other activities. They do NOT have any registered meetings with us so I've gone to them asking they either register the meeting with us and abide by our service structure, and use our literature, or to please remove our name from their use.  After usually a couple of emails back and forth over a period of time, they eventually drop use of our name and intellectual property.  I've even gotten complaints from people attending so "faux" meetings but whenever I've approached them about this - they refuse to speak to me about it.)

As for national funding - the Office of Victims of Crime for Arizona list http://ovc.ncjrs.gov/humantrafficking/traffickingmatrix.html SAATURN as one of their recipients.  Where we see TRUST again http://arizonaanti-traffickingnetwork.com/partners/  AZMEN is led by ex-sheriff Paul Penzone http://www.azcentral.com/news/politics/articles/20140228paul-penzone-antitrafficking-drive.html who is filling the gap which was "traditionally headed by womens' groups".  The ex-sheriff is supposed to address the needs of women and children who are being sex trafficked.   It says in the article "Luis CdeBaca, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large in the Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons was also a speaker" at this luncheon now being held for Penzone.  I didn't know sheriff's had training in issues of child sex trafficking - but okay.  Huh?

It also appears the Arizona Anti-Trafficking Network and TRUST are providing training in the “Public Safety Professional’s Response to Those that Suffer from Mental Health Issues" https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=546524638831441&id=516748635142375

Which is a nice way of saying "when you cart someone off on a 5150 mental health charge".

By the way, am I reading this clearly?  David Vitter is calling for "unaccompanied foreign minor children to be immediately be detained for deportation" on a human trafficking Bill?  http://www.vitter.senate.gov/newsroom/article/icymi-vitter-bill-would-stop-flow-of-illegal-border-crossings  This is the same guy who was in Jeane Palfrey's "Black Book" right?

Okay that starts to explain why Officer Armendariz on the human trafficking task force was stopping people and demanding their identification before his death before he could testify in a corruption hearing. http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/a-deputys-death-opens-the-door-onto-a-world-corruption-in-sheriff-joes-mcso-6462478  Because what I'm hearing from staff in Arizona is that illegal aliens can be detained without legal representation because they're not being arrested for one.  Second, they can be detained for an undefined amount of time.  Unlike if you're arrested.  There is no mandatory time they have to appear in front of a judge, or a criminal charge has to be filed against them or they have to be let go.  Third, they do not have to receive medical care the same as an American as they have no insurance.  Which is what I've been hearing out of jails in CA, AZ and TX - is that illegals are being detained for sometimes over six months without a lawyer, without medical care, and at about $165 a day to the system paid for their care.  Now I don't mean to be rude or crass here but have some of you seen what some of these 14 year old Hispanic or Chinese girl looks and are built like?

I know you think of this when you think Hispanic juvenile:



But can I point out here that some of Hispanic illegal aliens are this:



And:





Now I don't think we're going to find these girls are going to be put out to work on an egg farm as Rep. Portman found with a couple of kids when they were responding to complaints children were being trafficked out of these trafficking "safe houses".

Jan Brewer's name came up here a lot.  It appears she's fighting Obama at the moment over immigration.  http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/arizona/politics/2014/12/04/brewer-joins-states-fighting-obamas-immigration-action/19918273/  It appears Jan isn't interested in the children becoming citizens nor finding work or even getting a drivers' license.

Meaning if they can't get a job THEN CAN I ASK WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO FOR MONEY?  I'd don't know about you - but I remember being 13 years old with the body of an adult when my dad abandoned my mom in a motel with no money and rent coming due.  My mom was having a break down so she didn't know how to solve our financial problems.  I however did.  I put a miniskirt, a halter top, and a pair of high heels and walked into the corner bar.  Financial problems solved.  

Wow, looks like Jan's in wealthy company opposing Obama.  Seems Sheldon Adelson spent $150 million dollars opposing Obama, which would include him NOT wanting to get illegal aliens citizen status.   http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2012/12/03/sheldon-adelson-ended-up-spending-150-million  Which by the way isn't limited to Mexicans coming across the border, but also includes the Chinese, and Koreans, https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/online-sex-worker-forum-seized-in-undercover-sex-trafficking-sting-thereviewboard  who are being brought into this country and forced into sex trafficking with the threat of being deported back to their country if they don't cooperate with their traffickers.

So I"m sure this kind of money to oppose Obama, and his stance on illegal aliens, that includes Chinese women and their children, has nothing to do with Jan's filing of a lawsuit to fight Obama right?

He also donated to George W. Bush, and tried to counter George Soros.  Plus he also donated millions to Newt Gingrich (page 79 of the link above).  I remember that name from Iran Contra when I saw women being sold to seal drug and oil deals which I'm known to be quite vocal about witnessing our government's involvement in sex and drug trafficking during.   It also says on page 79 NBC named Adelson one of the "top 200 business people of 2014".   This is interesting support between McCain and Adelson.  http://swampland.time.com/2008/09/23/mccain_and_israel/  Enough to make me ask McCain where he stands on the issue of legalized prostitution in the USA of which Adelson has been supposedly trying to bring about.

Ah here we go - 2008 Sheldon Adelson, or his wife Miriam, gave John McCain campaign contributions  http://reason.com/archives/2012/06/18/sheldon-adelsons-foreign-money-and-john  Wait a minute, did I read this right on that link above?

Were all those New York Times editorials backing the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform suspect because the Times also owns the International Herald Tribune, which circulates in foreign countries, and because the New York Times Company is part owned by the Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim?

Now it appears Catholic Charities in Minnesota received $500,000 from the Dept. of Justice in 2012:  http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/229068.pdf  Granted it's not Arizona - but it's still Catholic Charities.

Arizona International Rescue Committee got a grant also from the DOJ for $300,000 in 2012:    http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/229068.pdf

Polaris got $350,000 from the DOJ in 2012 http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/229068.pdf

The Office of Victims of Crime Training in 2012 received $677,500 from the DOJ on page 9:  http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/229068.pdf

Here is a report by USAID on "government funded programs for trafficking" http://pdf.usaid.gov/pdf_docs/PDACU465.pdf designed to tell us how effective their money spent is.

I found this wording interesting in the report by the way:

Established in 2003, the Senior Policy Operating Group (SPOG) to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons coordinates interagency policy, grants, research, and planning issues involving international and domestic trafficking in persons (TIP) and the implementation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA). Since 2010, the SPOG Grantmaking Committee has focused significant attention on developing a strategy for supporting a shift towards evidence-based programming among United States government agencies to build the knowledge base on human trafficking and propose solutions to enhance anti-trafficking activities. The term “evidence-based practice” refers to any intervention that can be sourced back to methodologically-sound research demonstrating that it is effective and worthy of application on a large scale. 

Can I point out here when they say "evidence based" this means THEY ARE WATCHING?   I would like to add that no one knows about the calls coming into our hotline but us.  We do not allow any outsiders, researchers, reporters, politicians, into our meetings without our consent.  When professor Sharon Oselin studied a meeting of ours at the Mary Magdalene Project over a 10 year period of time, this was a meeting of ours that we weren't advised of even existing let alone she was being allowed to watch, study and interact with these women.

Which presented a flaw in her research for a few reasons.  One being our program doesn't work in a vacuum.  Our program consists of interaction with other members in other cities and countries.  We expose our members to those who work in illegal and legal arenas so they both know there is not much difference between the two.  We expose street walkers with pimps to our escorts living in Beverly Hills so they know we are "the same", which is the spiritual principle behind "anonymity" meaning we are the same.  We also engage our members in outreach as evidenced by Kathleen being advised when she got out of jail to go back into the jail to do outreach to others.  It clearly worked as Kathleen then went on to help others yes, but also seems to have gained a great deal for her own recovery as well in the process.  So I'd like to add that what Sharon researched was like studying the trunk on an elephant and calling that researching the elephant.  However, I'd also like to point out I'm quite proud of Kathleen who I don't need a study to know our program was effective with her.  I'd also like to personally thank her for refusing to get sucked in when Beth Jacobs would call her up with false complaints about me to get her wind up.  I never saw her respond to that in any way and I appreciate that.  

Now while Katherine Chon is the director of the Office of Trafficking in Persons might I point out that is a sub-office of the Administration for Children & Families.  Which is a sub-group of the Dept. of Health & Human Services.  Here is a chart of how the HHS is structured.  http://www.hhs.gov/about/agencies/orgchart/index.html  Which has as a part of it the National Institute on Mental Health, as well as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: http://www.samhsa.gov/about-us/who-we-are/offices-centers

Wait a minute - aren't these the agencies that do the research on programs to determine if they're effective or not?  It appears they're also in charge of Medicaid and Medicare to determine what services are covered under them, and also the FDA who approves what medications, or devices like the electro-shock cap, are to be used or not used in connection with the mental health population.   Also the Office on Civil Rights, and the Office on Legislation.

Oh that explains a lot.

It might explain why there's such a rush to put these children into the mental health system instead of the criminal justice system.  I'm sorry but I've been a child trying to accuse my father, the attorney, of child abuse.  I know I wouldn't had one leg to stand on if I had (1) been committed to a mental hospital, (2) was seeing a psychiatrist who deemed me mentally ill, (3) had been slapped on a bunch of medications not tested as safe on children with side effects for adults that would scare the hell out of you reading them off the label, (4) and possibly even subjected to this electro-shock the FDA is trying to roll out.  Along with that, people who are NOT properly trained in how to tell if a child is telling the truth in a highly emotional state vs. speaking from brainwashing vs. speaking from true mental illness NOT caused by the trafficking itself OR if in fact they're speaking from mental illness and not as a result of trafficking.  Some of the things I would teach counselors when I was doing continuing education back in the 1990's.

Now, I was fortunate.  My mother worked in the juvenile justice system for 13 years before I told her about my father's abuse.  My mother therefore KNEW NOT to do the above to me because it would have rendered my testimony in a court of law pointless.   Now I'm not saying my mother didn't get me help.  My mother just knew how the system worked, and knew it was protect him if she followed the "traditional route" she saw advocated by the juvenile system of the 1970's.

She was right as I've seen countless children's testimony be thrown out over issues such as hospitalization, medications, a badly trained therapist, poorly trained law enforcement, etc.

So it is important to us as a survivors of this type of system to be incorporated into the the programs', the training, the structure, policy advisement, the press, etc.  All of which we have found ourselves excluded from since 2007 entirely.  Being my current database of members' numbers 190,000, and I read recently that Polaris has "identified 10,000 survivors", and our blog alone has over 60,000 subscribers, and while they've been around since 2002, we've been around since 1987, I think that entitles us to be included in some fashion.

I know I know these people are all "respectable" and "above reproach" and some have won awards right?  Wouldn't harm a fly and we need to just that that all of these people, out of which only two from what I count as claimed survivors, Beth and Savannah, right?  Might I bring up this?  http://reason.com/blog/2016/03/04/the-somali-sex-slave-ring-that-wasnt

How about a married 63 year old prosecutor who raped 100's of prostitutes while using his office to do so?  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3492315/Michigan-prosecutor-charged-hiring-prostitutes.html

So I bring up Eliot Spitzer who was once governor of New York?  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/spitzer-choke-accuser-identified-svetlana-travis-25-article-1.2532341  Who tried to assault her when she rightfully tried to leave?

Now if a "john" who is wealthy and famous would order a hit out on an adult woman fearing she's going to testify against him, as "johns" do sometimes when caught with their hand in the cookie jar, such as Charlie Sheen, http://hollywoodlife.com/2016/04/06/charlie-sheen-put-hit-fiancee-ex-brett-rossi-hitman-hiv-positive/ can we talk about what someone like Officer Armendariz who was on the trafficking task force of Arizona and unstable enough to kill himself might do to some undocumented foreign child they might want to silence?

Am I imagining I've just gotten edged out by a monopoly?  Polaris, whose name is intertwined all the way through here, and whose CEO Bradley is married to Katherine, just partnered with Google, Salesforce, and Palantir to "fight trafficking"?  http://www.fastcompany.com/3009686/how-google-is-fighting-sex-trafficking-with-big-data

Palantir who is basically the CIA guys.  https://www.palantir.com/  Now how does this all tie back to the legal brothels of Nevada and Adelson who owns the Review Journal to tie this all up in a nice neat fat bow?  Well it seems Polaris was founded because of a report Katherine co-wrote with Derek Ellerman. http://www.browndailyherald.com/2007/04/26/federal-human-trafficking-bust-implicates-downtown-establishment/   

Derek who was a police cadet who "owes his career to Ron Paul".  http://thehill.com/capital-living/inside-the-office/193829-inside-the-office-of-rep-reid-ribble-r-wis-derek-ellerman  Ron Paul who has Dennis Hof "pimping for him". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUMheDNZLgA    

Whereby when I gave the press conference in 2007 whereby Melissa Farley told reporters after I told her I would not make such a statement to the press, claimed I had "called out to abolish the brothels" which is not how I feel personally, nor that of our program as a whole either who can "express no opinion on outside issues" but she did it anyway if you look back at my clips on www.hightechmadam.com

It was after this press conference I was approached by a reporter for the Review Journal.  She told me that she had to deliver me the message on behalf of the owner.  She said  "my name and the name of SWA has been blacklisted for life and it does not matter how many women DIE for not knowing about our program but our name will never appear?"

I'm lying or hallucinating right?  Okay I have a news clip showing I'm in Las Vegas in 2007.  Tom Ragan write a story on all the trafficking programs in Nevada in May of 2013.  See our name?  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/nevada-movement-draws-line-human-trafficking

Oh I was interviewed and photographed for the story.  Then Tom and the photographer were fired for insisting our name be included.  The photographer left and Tom said he would "make sure our name got out there somewhere somehow" to document we were still there in Nevada plugging away.
  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/tv-producers-ogle-strip-joint-reality-show  Now if Tom wasn't forced to omit our name - where did we go in May of 2013?  Nowhere.  The RJ refused to print our name as promised to me in 2007.  Also, you may want to know the RJ was the one who set up Assemblymen Bob Beers on a phony $5.00 ethics charge which got him booted out of office, and some death threats.  Then replaced with John Hambrick who there are members of the Nevada legislature such as Chris Edwards, to name one, who say he "bullied" his way into being Speaker of the House.  I don't see the RJ doing anything about that.  No not that Lance Gilman is a county councilman, on the Nevada Board of Economic Development, and also owner of a legal brothel who advised the NV governor.  Not now that Dennis Hof is running for Senate.  Not now that Vivid Porn has relocated up into Nevada.

Do you know why we have competition in this country?  Has anyone seen anywhere in the RJ a report of a Nevada brothel prostitute contracting HIV?  Does anyone know the police, who include Chief Gillispie, who has stepped down because of corruption charges, who have a Reno cop being charged with sexual harassment, that they pick up the test kits for HIV at the brothels?  Did you know that there's only one lab in all of Nevada, Quest Diagnostics?  When I was having traffickers connected to Greg Munks, who is also on the human trafficking task force in California, try and show me how they had Nevada "rigged" they showed me how they can alter medical results with the push of a button in Nevada, unlike California which has multiple labs.  I have the records that show first it was negative, then positive, then negative again.  Meaning you can alter HIV results, DNA, paternity, even a murder case.  All because of being a monopoly.  It's why the only other paper you'll see our name in Nevada is in the paper Ed Pearce writes for.  Why the RJ lied and said "no one objected to AB67" even though Aubrey read a letter to the legislature on why we objected strongly to that Bill.  Go on - look.  The FCC by the way says it's "legal to lie" when I complained.  I guess the fact a little thing like the law was involved in the lie doesn't matter to the FCC.

Now the reason why someone who is advising on training, policy, etc., on these issues should include people from our program is simple.  We know the game.  We know that in this report if they wanted to do away with massage parlor prostitution - they would have attacked massage parlors.  No.  They attacked Rhode Island decriminalized prostitution WHO WAS THE LEGAL BROTHELS OF NEVADA'S COMPETITION.

Wiped it out and left Nevada intact.  Not only left Nevada intact I see no sign law requiring the National Trafficking Hotline Phone #, nor our hotline, nor Children of the Night, or the Runaway Hotline, nor any hotline for that matter being required to be posted up in the brothels despite the fact (1) they have a law on the books if you try and leave the brothel when you first arrived you can be arrested, (2) if you try and leave after 9 pm you can be arrested, (3) if you walk down the street to leave the brothel in some areas you can be arrested, (4) there are no cabs nor buses one can take out of the brothels 24/7 if they want to leave, and (5) if they want to leave they are refused their money which is given to their "manager", i.e., legal pimp who I have YET to see one prosecuted for trafficking.  Oh and now thanks to "Truckers Against Trafficking" we can't get volunteer truck drivers to pick them up and take them to safety like we used to.  Nope, they call the hotline who says call the cops who then either does nothing because no one can be arrested on the spot, or they take them back to the brothel because they're violating curfew.  Once in a blue moon we get a referral and then we can step in.

However, when I tried to speak to the trafficking task force, the police, the attorney general's office, and even the press of Nevada about this woman who wanted to have her pimp prosecuted for trafficking her within the legal brothels of Nevada NO ONE WOULD RETURN OUR CALLS. www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk/2013/07/08/hear-from-a-nevada-brothel-prostitute

In fact, while I was trying to find someone, anyone to help this woman file charges against her pimp who was threatening to put her children into porn if she didn't go back to work at the brothel owned by the Hell's Angel's she said, Dennis Hof bought the place out, the old owner threatened to kill her and her children if she "continued to speak" (he thinks he spoke to her anyway) on the day the Shady Lady closed escrow with Dennis, and all of this was done with no one returning our calls.

So you see, we don't just have a monopoly going on here with respect to us being shut out of helping to prepare the trainings, helping to shape policy and programs, helping to design campaigns that truly help our community, and through which we have just as much right to be included in as Alcoholics Anonymous has in the treatment of alcoholism, and Narcotics Anonymous, has in the treatment of drug addiction, as we do anyone involved with anything to do with exiting the sex industry for any reason, trafficking or any other reason, but we have a situation where we've being excluded from helping victims who come to us for help now because everyone who is in this field now is terrified of going up against people the likes of which who hold the very highest offices of power in this country.  We just being a group of survivors can't compete up against that in any way, shape or form other than to cry "anti-trust" and move forward from there asking for the government to step in and break this up.  I certainly don't see anyone else other here with us standing now in competition with anyone to do with their side.  Everyone on their side is quite united - including to the point where I can't even get anyone in California to talk to me about the case where a woman was drug out of her home and slapped with two fake prostitution cases while being threatened into returning back to her work as an illegal prostititute "or else" she was going to be deported back to China where they would see to it with their connections she'd get the death penalty.  Now seeing these connections are quite real, and seeing that for three years now I've been knocking on doors trying to get someone to speak to me about this case only to be (1) ignored, (2) threatened with arrest for stalking, and (3) threatened with a 5150 insanity charge - well we have a problem now don't we?

I want to say one thing about "evidence of effectiveness of programs" if I might.  In all of these Arizona programs, only THREE survivors exist who are involved trying to help others.  The first is Kathleen Mitchell who got her early recovery through our program I founded.  The second is Savannah Sanders who got her early recovery through the Dignity Project Kathleen founded when we were having regular Prostitutes Anonymous meetings.  In fact, she's told me she's been to those meetings.  Agree or disagree - they were a part of what made her.  Beth Jacobs?  She was part of a program back in Minnesota when she got her early recovery.  There are newspaper account of her being a part of PRIDE/Breaking Free when they were holding our meetings.  She in fact is quoted in one of those news articles about being a part of our program back then when she was new.    Meaning I see four survivors in this whole equation right now in Arizona trying to help others - ALL of who got their recovery through the hotline I answer, and the program I designed.  Is that enough "evidence" for you that our program needs to be included in this system?

As for Beth's behavior over the last four years smearing me, and our program, to anyone and everyone that will listen.  Beth left that program in Minnesota without working our steps according to the interview I heard published.  In our program we used to call this "whore mentality" but then cleaned it up to "post-prostitution syndrome" where one acts like they're "back on the corner".  She's got herself a sweet position right now there in Arizona it appears getting to be a trainer for the Truckers Against Trafficking, and going off to Washington with the likes of Cindy McCain.  She's just "kicking us off her corner" and illustrates what happens to us when like a "dry drunk" in AA, one leaves the streets but doesn't work their steps.  I mean you don't think someone like Cindy McCain would risk having people sending me screen shots of her bashing me like that in order to push out our involvement now would you?  Which is why frankly we haven't sued Beth for defamation.  We think she's just trying to survive the best way she knows how in a system that's pushed us out, and also probably doing someone else's dirty work for them.  We're not going to penalize her for a lack of recovery and that's why we have continued to suggest all the more aggressively why Arizona needs to have our program restored to it the way it was designed - in connection with our other members at large across this nation, and into other countries so we can start connecting her to her sisters and brothers worldwide.

Okay this ends the blog post on the monopoly that exists in Arizona.  I will continue on in another blog about other states at a later post.
