While watching social media she asked me to watch - I saw her having dinner with Dennis Hof and her husband, Michael Whiteacre before going to work at the ranch. Michael Whiteacre is a pornographer who has made a life's mission out of Shelley Lubben. He created the "Devil in Ms. Lubben". http://thedevilandshelleylubben.blogspot.com/2016/03/shelley-lubben-sex-scandal.html A facebook group called "The Truth About Pink Cross". Michael also makes regular blog posts which include maps to Shelley's house, photographs of her at fundraisers for abused animals, and screenshots of legal papers like those of her husband's domestic violence. He broadcasts court dates of when they're supposed to be in what court and makes sure that the address and times are sent out to the porn community at large.
Shelley Lubben is not the only ex-sex worker on his radar, but so is Monica Foster. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zMk_-BCq3g The same goes for Monica also. He puts legal papers concerning her court dates online, and regular blog posts about her travel arrangements, where she's living, where she's working, and anything else about her activities he can post about Monica online. Monica reports she left Los Angeles and moved to Las Vegas because she "did not feel safe" anymore in Los Angeles because of threats she'd been receiving from men in the porn industry. In fact, she's asked the court to allow her to appear by telephone because she's afraid for her life by coming into a courtroom to answer legal charges that have been filed against her. Court dates, times and addresses of appearances that Michael makes sure are posted online for the porn community to be aware of. http://prostitutionresearch.com/pre_blog/2012/06/28/pimps_will_be_pimps_part_2_of/
It seems a hobby of Michael's is to follow the doings of ex-sex workers very closely and to post every single detail he can find out about them online. He doesn't just follow the women either but the men. I've been kept posted on the activities of men who have left the porn industry also. http://business.avn.com/articles/legal/Anti-Porner-Donny-Pauling-Arrested-for-Sex-With-Minor-581756.html
I had asked Christina about how she could judge her working experience at a legal brothel as being on the same level as other women being that it was clear first of all going into the situation three things that most other women don't have. The first is that there was a dinner where her husband met with Dennis Hof, and Dennis is very aware that Christina is married to a man who is well-known within the porn community and also an attorney.
Kind of intimidating in my opinion - again especially with the public records of domestic violence online. http://bunnyranchinsider.com/2015/10/dennis-hofs-new-bff-porn-stalker-michael-whiteacre-aka-ari-bass-convicted-of-beating-wife-who-works-at-dennis-brothel Also not going to be the same type of job interview that other women report to me they get from Dennis. Every other woman I've spoken to has told me they've had to sleep with Dennis for free over a weekend in order to be hired. An experience Christina did not have at dinner with Dennis and her husband. If anything, the meeting over dinner appeared to me to be Michael pretty much letting Dennis know "this is my wife and treat her nicely". Again, not something most of the women I've known to work at these brothels enjoy having a husband/lawyer/pornographer letting the owners know they're watching what's going on carefully as a common thing. http://www.pornnewstoday.com/pnt/2015/01/06/ari-bass-aka-michael-whiteacre-slapped-with-a-no-contact-order-by-las-vegas-courts/
The second was she constantly was on social media the general public was able to access - something I don't see the other employees of the ranch enjoying. Meaning her husband, and the public, were on the outside watching over her in a manner the other women working there aren't enjoying the safety of that second eye on the outside. In fact I don't know of any other employee of these ranches who has this kind of social media where anyone in the general public can see everything they're doing 24/7 as Christina had set up on her media then.
The third is that Dennis knew going into this that Christina was going to write about this experience, and present it at an annual conference given in Ohio of people who work with prostitutes in different capacities, and many academics. Meaning that between her husband, the public viewing her constantly online with a large social media following, and the fact the owner of the brothel was aware going into the situation that there was going to be a permanent record broadcast about everything she experienced - did not reflect the same experience that the average Jane coming to work at the brothel would be experiencing.
So those were the questions I asked her when her and I were "friends" on her social media that she asked me to join when she was embarking upon this project. Questions of how could she possibly compare her experience working there with that of the "average" working girl who would be going in there under totally different circumstances. I honestly didn't feel it was a fair comparison. Not when I see shows on TV like "Undercover Boss". Those shows take great pains to go in like an average employee would go into the company in order to see what the average experience would be knowing that they, as the owner or CEO, is going to be presented a very different picture.
A few days into the project - she put out an alert that she "wanted out of there" and was asking for people to "come and get her out of here". I was monitoring her as she asked and I responded saying I was "on my way". I have screenshots saved of everything.
Where she was at from where I was at was quite a bit of distance so I told her it would take me a while to get there but I was coming. I was having to come myself because our other volunteer drivers who live closer to the brothel she was in have all been threatened so badly, even attacked, they've all moved out of the state. One volunteer driver was so threatened he left the country, while another man was so upset when he came home to find his house broken into and ransacked with a threat left that he had a heart attack and has now passed on.
(Yes I have kept the emails and text messages of our volunteers who have reported to me they've been threatened and harassed to the point where they have had to move out of state, out of the country, and about the one man who after finding his home trashed and the threat left in his home he then suffered a heart attack within 24 hours.)
So that left me at that time being the one with a car to go get her out of there as she had asked for help. About 30 minutes later, she told me "it was okay". When I asked what happened she said she had "just changed her bipolar medication and was just going through an adjustment and she was okay now". I told her I'd check in with her again daily to make sure in case she changed her mind and did so.
I was concerned she might be afraid to come home because of the past records for domestic violence I'd seen online between her and Michael so I let her know she was welcome to come stay with me if she didn't want to go home. She insisted she was fine and wanted to continue with her research. (Christina now claims I have "violated her confidence by speaking about her bipolar disorder and this medication incident. However, it was posted on Twitter to the general attention and not my private attention - and therefore was not something rendered to me in confidence. Since she has never been a member of SWA, has never called our hotline, she's never invoked our confidence in the first place either.)
Once she was home, she blocked me off her social media. However, she had already been added into our contact list on our end as a "friend" and as someone who is a sex worker active in the industry. As a courtesy, and because she's a researcher, we sent her a copy of the newsletter we had sent out in response to Bradley Myles acting like boys being raised to be pimps by their elders was something that only happened in Mexico - and not in the USA. She then did send us a request to take her off the newsletter list which we did.
Norma Jean Almodovar had sent us a group email with Christina in the loop. To respond to that email, we had to also send back a response to Christina. She was taken off our mailing list of people we send emails to, but in responding to Norma's repeated group emails to us, Christina kept getting an email copy to her as well. We had no way of deleting that because it was in the email Norma had sent us and therefore automatic. So any emails to Christina during that period of time she received from us were initiated by Norma Jean.
To maintain our members' anonymity, we ask all members not to identify as members on their social media. We also ask they not send out any communications with our name on it, or on our behalf from their computers. To do so would reveal their IP address, and in some cases might even reveal their physical locations. We therefore have asked members if they want to say something on the group's behalf to do so from either my account, or my computer, or even using my email address or social media accounts. This is to mask their personal identities and locations. We do not add members on our "friends" list because it's too easy to turn around and identify them this way. We don't have them as "followers" on twitter either.
We have no online groups online either because some years ago we had Beth Jacobs start placing members photos of them and their kids online for the general public to view and thus endangering them. So we took down even our members only groups. We ask no local meetings advertise their locations online. Any ads for us for local meetings have to use our main phone number and main email to again further protect the anonymity of our members. All communications need to come through a relay system we have set up here at my location so everything appears to be coming through me to protect their identities and locations. Our database for members at this moment is over 190,000. Now with that large of a number of members posting things on our behalf they want to say using my name, my social media, my accounts - I would imagine it might look like I'm in a lot of places but that's not the case.
Today I had a new member in our office. She's on probation and has to have a job or she goes to jail. When in situations like that, I will hire them to work here so they have a job that can be reported to their probation officer. If they need training in job skills such as typing, emailing, graphic design, transcription, social media, or other skills they might need to learn on the fly so they can get hired at a permanent job - I provide training. I have the equipment here and the knowledge and I will take in new members who need to learn certain job skills quickly and teach it to them on the spot. School sometimes costs money and takes time and these men and women sometimes need to be able to find work "now". So I have provided training to many a person finding they have to get other types of work to satisfy their probation, parole, or because they might be going through a custody case.
I was showing a new member how to set up a Linkedin account today. A prompt came up asking to generate contacts. I was unaware this prompt would send out emails to every email address in my email folder. I thought it would only take emails from my contacts list. Seems Linkedin has updated their system because I got the following response from Christina after it seems they emailed her. The email below is copied word for word to show her response to this "invite" from Linkedin she received on accident.
JODY FUCK OFF
After I received this email, I sent Christina an apology. I let her know we had a woman in the office today who I was teaching office skills to because she was on probation for a prostitution charge and trying to avoid jail that I was helping. She had been setting up a new Linkedin account for us and did not realize when it was asking to set up "connections" that it was going to send out an email to everyone in our email box. She thought it was just going to go out to those in our "contacts" list and made a mistake. Christina's response to this apology was to call another sex worker, well you can read what she called another sex worker trying to avoid jail:
If you ask me it's a very clever tactic to convey information to other people who could be doing harm to these women in a manner where Michael would not be held directly responsible as I've seen other attorney's do when their wife leaves them for abuse. Remember, we've had members of SWA whose pimp/husband included Chuck Traynor, who also owned the Gun Store in Nevada, who were cops, attorney's, prosecutors, professors, and other positions of high rank that both pedophiles and abusers gravitate towards in order to protect themselves and intimidate their victims. "Oh your honor I never told anyone to do anything to that woman - I posted that information on a blog anyone could have looked up themselves." Yes we live in a country that has free speech - but there's also a fine line between free speech and inciting one to violence. If you ask me - Pink Cross has every legal grounds to sue Michael Whiteacre for not only destroying their ministry, but even to inciting Garrett to violence, and losing his job, because of what was posted about them online by Michael.
Why might he do such a thing? It's a common tactic of abusive males to isolate their victims from anyone they feel is a threat who could remove or protect them. I have no doubt Christina may either be put up to push me away from any social contact with her being what I represent, or that he might even be the person contacting me himself on her email as this frankly sounds too aggressive to be from a female, and doing everything he can to make sure anyone who has left the porn industry is not allowed to have any contact with Christina, or frankly to scared to. In looking over her social media you will not find one person on her contacts who is not active within the sex industry in some fashion in fact. I find no one on her list who is out of the sex industry, nor who works with any group that helps someone out of the sex industry. A common pattern with victims of pimps by the way. They maintain control over their victims by making sure they do not have any social contact with anyone who either has left the industry, or who may support their exiting the industry. It's very hard to get sober when you live in a bar and are surrounded by nothing but drunks.
Christina - I'm not scared of your husband. If you ever want to leave we can get you so far underground he will never find you. Not one of the men or women we've helped to leave horrific pimps who make your husband look like a poodle has ever been found by those people they were running from. Women like Monica Foster, Shelley Lubben, Desi Foxx, and those he follows on his blogs - please note not one of those women was a member of OUR program. In all Michael's diggings to find people who would attack Shelley, and the person Shelley claims your husband sent in as a "spy" to dig up the dirt that he did for "Devil in Ms. Lubben" you will note he has not been able to do the same with our organization.
After the last insult wasn't enough - this email then came in to us after our members were called "lacky's".
Well if I had to deal with things like this below - I guess I'd take it out on someone else also. Again, if that's even her sending me those threats and not Michael hiding behind her email. I'm an old retired junkie and prostitute - do these people think I give one shit about people "destroying my reputation"? I've been called names and beat up on since the third grade. You want to attack me? Get in line. I'll add you onto the list ranging from my father, to my ex-pimp to my ex-husband and then the pimps of everyone I've ever rescued. I'm still standing motherfuckers.
