Re: “Bay Area Authorities Need to Bring Celeste Guap Back to California — And Media Must Protect Her Privacy

What you said is NOT TRUE Bella, and the fact you state such lies are more proof that these same people who are doing such things to sex workers have now got "influencers" such as yourself, and even Maxine Doogan, who are PRETENDING to be caring about these same women, while at the same time silencing them, and further making sure they DON'T FIND THE RIGHT DOOR OUT.

Our organization www.sexworkersanonymous.com was FOUNDED on the very fact that sex trafficking victims in the USA are not trafficked by street pimps - but in fact by men in uniform, law enforcement, the prosecutors' office, the judges, and clear on up to the FBI, CIA and other high offices.

I know as I was the one who created the first safe house for those exact types of victims who could not go to other traditional "safe houses" because the local police always knew where those are. I in fact got busted for just such a safe house in 1984.

When the police got wind I was stashing women away from them successfully, then sent me in such a "stooge" to set me up. They had found a woman who was on probation for prostitution and drugs. Then had her ask me for help. I then put her in the safe house and then the police arrested me for "running a brothel".

Thankfully, my attorney was able to ask "how?" I had no phones on, no ads running, no signs of any prostitution going on. Further, I had the tape recording of the call where I told her I was "retired" and that I was taking her to this place to be safe from her pimp. A pimp who had cop friends and therefore she couldn't go to the local police for help.

However, not wanting to let go easy, the cops then arrested my mother claiming she was "pimping me". They had a photo of me handing her a $20 bill for a bucket of KFC chicken. Under the law, if you take money from a "known prostitute" then that's pimping. Only how was I a "known" prostitute when I had no convictions for prostitution?

So we started to fight those charges and then they threatened to arrest my grandmother. Okay that made me back up and take a plea bargain. Then the prosecutor insisted he'd "drop the case if I testified about what I knew" about these corrupt officers. However, if I was running the only safe house in the country I was aware of anyway - then where would I go for safety? Remember Sandra Bland? Well I'd seen these guys killing women like me in jails, treatment programs, shelters, for years before. That's why I took that warehouse and created a safe house. One they wanted to shut down so badly. Now did that stop me? Hell no. I just realized I had to use a different tactic.

So in 1987, once I made sure I was legally beyond any statutes for anyone to come after me for anything I said on TV, I then launched the first international hotline for anyone, male or female, to call for help when they wanted out of the sex industry, for any reason. If you look at some of our news clips at www.hightechmadam.com, or our interviews at www.leavingtheliferadio.com or our videos at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzd_a9GPy… You'll see we're very clear that if someone is being trafficked against their will, and if the authorities are involved in any way, they can call us for help and GET IT.

We're so effective at it we almost made history with Jeane Palfrey. Jeane Palfry was the first one of us who had black and white EVIDENCE of being forced to madam her girls at the hand of men in our own government in case you don't remember Bella. I was with her on the first day after her arrest and I kept her safe up to the very last. In fact, I believe if she'd listened to my advice she'd still be alive today.

Her whole defense was based on the fact she repeatedly tried to leave the business, even leave the country, but that it was our government who kept using her to do their bidding, and probe for information going back to the same CIA who was part of my story. I was also forced to do things I didn't want to do during Iran Contra - where I witnessed many a woman sold overseas to seal these clandestine deals made by our government. Where the cocaine the CIA was bringing into this country, then processed by the gangs they blamed for the epidemic - was then transported into Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and movie studios in the purses of escorts these men were forcing me to do also. Always using us for their scapegoats if anything went wrong.

I knew enough about these people that I warned Jeane not to trust ABC when they offered to substantiate her claims with her "Black Book". I knew not to trust them because I'd seen what they done with me on case where our group had rescued a girl out from under cops who were trafficking her in Canada. We worked with their writers for months - only to have them completely change the story up when it came time to start production. ABC had also made evidence in the Johnny Gosch case in connection with the Omaha Franklin scandal disappear also. The mother told me this when she'd heard me talking about the Omaha Franklin case when I'd gone back to Nebraska to help those victims get out of there safely.

Then we watched Dan Rather get up and say there were "no names of significance" in the book. Only I'd convinced her to give 10 other sites back-up copies such as the "Smoking Gun" who then went "not so fast" and revealed there were in facts names such as David Vitter and Randall Tobias. You remember Randall's name from his writing of the TVRA of 2003 - which took all the money WE had helped to create in the first place, and then said that "only faith based groups" of which we are not, could receive any federal money to help these victims. Now I ask you - why would we want federal agencies to have money to set up programs for victims of federal agencies? We didn't - which is another reason why Jeane wanted to take her case to Congress to show them what was going on and why.

The day before her death, she had someone following her all day. Her landlord witnessed it and there was videotape of this man following her into the garage of her home that day. I had urged Jeane to let us hide her as we have others in ways where she couldn't be found. She was afraid someone would harm her mother if she left. So in the interest of protecting her elderly sick mother - she then went to her house to protect her. She'd scheduled a press conference for the next day to reveal "more names higher than Tobias" which she never made.

The press was claiming her death was a "suicide" without her body even being cold nor a toxicology report in hand. Her own mother at first said she felt it was murder, and then recanted. When I asked her mother why she recanted she said she was "afraid whoever killed her would come back for her" if she didn't. I had clearly told Jeane not to leave her house for any reason that night because of how when I was in her shoes - my attorney had advised me to go stay with my grandmother. That way no one could claim I'd committed "suicide" like they did with Gary Webb. He warned me they would try and trick me into leaving the house so they could harm me. Which they did try to. So I warned Jeane about these tricks - and she assured me she wouldn't leave the house. Yet her body was found hung in the back yard shed.

The press about her saying it was "suicide" hadn't revealed there were bruises on her lower legs consistent with someone forcing her to be hung. That truth wasn't revealed for years. Of course she knew she was in danger of being murdered. Brandy Britton had already been found dead and we both believed it was probably murder also being that she was the escort who'd dated Vitter. Two other women who had dated Vitter had also been found hung - one in a jail cell. So of course she made plans with her mother in that event. The press was using that claiming that her "plans" in case of her death was a "suicide note".

Angry, I contacted the head detective on her case out of Florida I'd like to add and told him that if a full murder investigation wasn't done in her case, I would go on TV with the texts and emails between Jeane and I for the last couple of years to prove it wasn't suicide. The next morning the police station in the small town where I lived got a phone call from a Florida detective. The next thing I know I have a warrant being served upon me for supposedly "impersonating Jody Williams" which is my legal name. I had five cops and a drug dog tear apart my house for five hours while they searched for Jeane's records and any drugs they assumed I'd have. Only they found nothing. Not content with that - they tried to get CPS to take my kid. When that failed, they started harassing my landlord and hitting him with baloney zoning violations saying it would stop when he evicted me.

Back about 2013, we started getting calls about cops who were operating an actual operation down in Florida. These women were telling me that these brothels were set up to "appear" to be "trafficking safe houses" so the neighbors wouldn't question what they were seeing. They had a woman who I won't name now, supposedly claiming to be a "survivor" and who had put herself on every anti-trafficking committee and task force she could get onto. The reason was simple and what we've seen modeled in Oakland, as well as other cities. This way they could direct the arrests and crack downs on their "competitors" and those who weren't part of their operation. The "johns" who were arrested were then assured if they did business with them - they'd avoid future arrest. The women were told if they worked for this operation - they'd also avoid arrest - just as we've seen with Celeste.

Nancy O'Malley has no track record of helping women like Celeste either to escape, nor recover, from what she's gone through. In fact, I have tried repeatedly in the past to get an audience with Nancy about the MANY woman I have calling me who are reporting to me they are being trafficked not by street pimps - but by men who are in offices ranging from the police on up to Homeland Security, ICE, etc., Men such as Joohon David Lee as but one example. These women have reported to me they've had fake police charges put on them, with threats to then deport them, or their family members, if they don't comply with their wishes, and keep their mouth shut. I myself have received threats to "back off" helping these victims not by pimps but by police officers, even Chiefs of Police.

I have tried to get an audience with both Nancy O'Malley, and Kamala Harris, just to name a few, who refuse to speak to me. Now I've had independent reputable reporters such as John Quinones and Bob Herbert come in and check out our organization - who have written glowing wonderful reports about our work. I've had independent researchers such as Professor Sharon Oselin who came in and did a 10 year study of our program, and three others, of which not only did we come out on top, but further we're the only program she researched who is still operating. I've got 30 years of press with quotes from our members online - showing there's absolutely no reason whatsoever that an adult as Celeste Guap was shouldn't have been referred to our program for assistance. Which is why I contacted Nancy when I read she was "handling her case" because I knew what that was code for.

What that's code for is what happened here. She was sent to Florida where they have other police involved in this case. There was nothing they could charge Celeste with at that time. Nothing that wouldn't incriminate one of their own further. So magically she now has a charge. A charge which if they can't threaten to deport her over, they'll threaten to deport members of her family. They'll go after her family the way they went after my mother, the way they went after Heidi Fleiss' parents, and even Jeane Palfrey's mother (before we convinced them to drop the case against Jeane's mom).

Maxine Doogan is being built up in the press as being an "advocate" for women like her. Only not only have I not seen Maxine get one single woman out of this type of situation, out of the business, and also living safely ever after yet, but I've also now got a stack of emails and calls that have come into our hotline claiming that she's being built up as this type of person, so that people will "trust her" and then "turn to her" where then they are having different methods used to silence them right on down to one woman claiming that Maxine stole her evidence she had against the police. http://traffickingandprostitutionservices.…

So don't hand me that Celeste needs to speak to Maxine for help because (1) there's no one person even who she's ever helped out of this type of operation and to safety that I've ever seen nor heard of, and (2) I do have evidence she's being used in fact as what's called a "trojan horse". In other words, she's being built up in the media as the "go to" person for someone like her, only these women are then contacting me later saying they were "tricked", "lied to", "had evidence stolen", and one says she was even almost killed during a drug overdose she blames Maxine for". I've had more than one email reporting she's gotten them to sign bogus movie contracts which are being used to silence them.

I had the same thing in my day - but I caught on. They come to you offering you money for your book and movie deal - but you agree to only talk when they tell you to talk" and then they never let you. It's a way to buy your confidence to shut you up and if you don't know who your producers are - it's easy for fall that it.

You know good and well Bella we exist, and that we DO help women just like Celeste, as we have for 30 years now. So don't hand out the usual "oh nothing exists" that these people say in the media to convince women like Celeste we don't exist, and that there "is no way out" because there is. First of all, the LAST place we would have sent her for drug treatment would have been Florida - especially knowing what we know is that this whole operation that the police are a part of right now have operations down in Florida that are being run by the police, and that anyone who has tried to go up against them down there has had their very lives threatened. Dan from the Defenders was threatened so badly for his work extracting victims from trafficking operations, his car messed with, and even threats to stop helping us with extractions that he's preparing to move to Greece to get to safety.

What in the hell would you know about it Bella being you're STILL IN THE BUSINESS? Tell me how on earth does a drunk know where someone can go to get sober? Especially if there's a bar that's locked that woman in the bar and after pointing a gun at her and her family is forcing her to drink? What would you as an active drunk know about how someone like that would get sober, or where to go to find that help?

I'm supposed to trust SWOP? After Robin died, SWOP Seattle actually covered for the traffickers! They claimed women on that Korean website "were not trafficking victims" when I in fact know they were. The thing is, that by saying these women were "not" trafficking victims, they were saying they were guilty of illegal prostitution. Now why would SWOP get up and claim another woman was guilty of a crime, and then take away her one out to get out of being charged - that she was forced? Why is SWOP for that matter been spending the last 18 months trying to infiltrate our organization? I've got the tapes of the voices of their people calling trying to scout out information on our meetings and members. They've threatened our hotline. Stalked, threatened, defamed and harassed our members. Now why would any group who claims to wanting to help sex workers - go and attack the ONE GROUP WHO CAN OFFER THEM ALTERNATIVE SENTENCING?

No one who claims to care about sex workers would let someone go to jail knowing that going to jail could cost them their marriage, their children, their home as they did with Amber Batts in Alaska. For YEARS we've been the way for those convicted of prostitution to avoid jail, to keep their kids, to keep their homes, and to avoid completely having to raise $1,000's of dollars for an attorney. An attorney who if he's any good - will find himself disbarred like Montgomery Sibley, and others I can list down the line who this has happened to, including one who even became Mayor of Philadelphia who was disbarred after getting one of our members off the hook when a snitch tried to force a fake drug charge against him. Our attorney won - and he got disbarred for it. Which is why we use a different system now - but the fact remains that if convicted for prostitution as an adult - you can without an attorney ask to go to our program instead of jail and so far every judge has allowed it. Under laws grandfathered in by AA - they could be charged with discrimination if they didn't allow it.

www.sexworkersanonymous.com is the ONLY program which not only services members from all over the world trying to get out of the industry, including those who say they're forced to by anyone, including law enforcement, or others in top offices of authority, but who also works with men, women, transgenders, and the LGBT community - all of who are refused service by these other groups who only will work with heterosexual women, and also will refuse women who are Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim, etc.

We are also the ONLY group who has gone after traffickers in authority such as Kemp Shiffer, Chris Butler, Joohoon David Lee, to name a few, who has got those men shut down from forcing women into acts of not only prostitution, but also drug sales, and blackmail. Because they'll also use us as their scapegoats for blackmail too you know. We have reason to believe that Donald Burns was not blackmailed by Teofil - but instead by the same trafficking operation that's not only a part of what happened to Celeste, but dates back to "Operation Dollhouse" in 2007 and even arrests made just recently in Ventura, California. There is no doubt in my mind there's a direct connection with Celeste Guap being sent to Florida at the very same time that more arrests were made against the trafficking ring these cops were a part of in Ventura, Calfiornia by Officer Gary Pentis.

Celeste is in great danger. Now I know you mean well here by asking her name be blocked, and the press go dark here. Only I differ. This woman is in great danger of winding up like the Baton Rouge madam, Jeane Palfrey, and Sandra Bland who merely criticized the police. The only thing keeping this woman ALIVE right now is the press on her as much as possible. This way if anything went wrong - her death would at least be questioned.

Remember, a coroner has said that Gary Webb could not have physically shot himself in the head twice with a shotgun. And this woman knows probably as much as he did about what's going on right now with respect to a sex trafficking ring that's connected clear back to China, connected to Paul Tanaka, and is connected to trafficking all across this USA, who is not only using cops and others in offices such as the prosecutors' office (anyone remember the Orange County judge who dismissed 250 DA's because they were all corrupt?), but further as a minor when she was trafficked - there's no statute of limitations on her testimony and on charges she might press against her abusers.

Meaning she might be in more danger even than Jeane Palfrey was for what she knows. The fact Nancy kept this woman as an adult from us when we were trying to extend help to her, and would send her to a Florida treatment program which we would never do right now knowing what's down in Florida that could do to her exactly what started to be done here (for all we know she was defending herself), shows all the more if she's not a part of trying to cover up what Celeste knows, than she's at best incompetent and negligent for not contacting us to be involved in her case, and I am consulting with an attorney about charging her with negligence,

So Celeste - please if you read this know you're not alone. There is help out there which can protect you. SWA has members down in Florida which we can send to help you. Beware of everyone now - including phony producers, phony attorney's, all kinds of "wolves in sheep's clothing" who have an agenda right now going involving a lot of money, and covering a lot of asses, etc. If you look at our news clips, our interviews, our videotapes, you'll see WE ARE THE ONLY group who has been helping women like you get out, stay out, and stay alive after getting out, including women who were in EXACTLY you're situation. In all those years, we've only lost ONE person, Jeane, when she didn't listen to our advice. I had told her not to go to her mother's that evening and to let us stash her somewhere safe off the grid. If she'd done that, I believe she'd be alive today.

You can call us toll free from any payphone even at (888) 666-1782 any time of night or day. We always have someone in recovery answering our hotline who understands everything you're going through. Beware of women in the industry who claim they can get you "out". If they can't protect themselves from these guys, and they can't get out, then how in the hell can they know how to help you get out safely? Use your head girl!

The people who sent you to Florida are not your friend. Look at what happened. We have said back here at our main office that this was going to be their next move - and we were right. We know their moves and can beat them - and THAT'S WHY they're not telling you about our group. Maxine, Bella, they're not "out". What do they know about leaving this network of people who extend clearly across the whole USA? Nancy has done nothing but try and block people from finding help from us - or any help at all and your story is more proof of that. Please be careful Celeste and try to reach us when you can.

Re: “Federal Police Officer Offered to Pimp East Bay Teenager at Center of Oakland Police Sex-Abuse Scandal

This article illustrates my point this it NOT just about the private sex life of cops. Which now we know the REAL reason these people were REFUSING TO EVEN SPEAK TO OUR ORGANIZATION www.sexworkersanonymous.com But know this - this is not UNIQUE. This same scenerio has now taken place in Ohio, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami, Texas, San Diego, Tennessee, Atlanta, and now California. Over and over and over again we're having these "anti-prostitution" and sex trafficking task forces REFUSE to have anything to do with our organization who by the way STARTED THIS MOVEMENT (would you really try to help an alcoholic without Bill Wilson or AA?) and we've seen over and over and over again the truth come out as to the fact they were covering up something of their own. The PRESS STILL refuses to include us in the discussion, to the point of even blocking us from commenting as the Los Angeles Times has done, and yet WHAT'S CHANGING? I STILL don't hear anyone calling us up talking about what they're going to do about the fact not only are these programs and task forces REFUSING to even allow us to attend their meetings, let alone be involved in any capacity, but further our groups which meet in these area's have all reported back to us they were being threatened away from doing outreach, holding meetings, or even speaking to women like this Celeste calling our hotline. My complaints to the authorities of the threats we've been receiving steadily now since 2013 when we get calls from women like her to "back off" speaking to them are also going unresponded to. For THIRTY YEARS NOW we've proven where we've been involved - we've had a positive impact at getting these women help. Also for this same time period, we've seen over and over again where we're excluded, the problem is at it's highest because of police either being the traffickers, or customers AND traffickers, at the same time. I say that because anywhere I've seen the cops be having sex with these women I've ALSO seen them backing up the traffickers such as the Joohoon David Lee case out of Las Vegas - a Homeland Security and ICE Officer which by the way = how come the LA Times, ABC, CBS, CNN or no other major media reported on what this guy was doing along with the fact he's not been charged with sex trafficking - only bribery? Believe it or not, Narcotics Anonymous has the SAME problem as this back in the 1950's and with cops involved within using drugs and dealing. They found a way to work around it. So I'm asking - what are we going to do to change this problem? Because I also don't hear anyone talking about the MONEY WASTED HERE. Money which was supposed to be helping women like Celeste to get services - was just put into people's pockets which these cops also actively blocked her from getting any help and then threatening us when we take calls from girls like her. So WHAT'S GOING TO BE DONE NOW ABOUT THIS?

Re: “Oakland City Council Takes Stand Against Sex Workers

This is EXACTLY what's going on. For years, when a woman was convicted of prostitution she could ask the judge to be given the "alternative" to sentencing and attend our 12 step meetings at Sex Workers Anonymous. Here's the ironic part - I'm the founder of the modern day sex trafficking movement! The victims weren't able to get victim assistance because the system said they were "criminals". So I was told if we got federal recognition then they would start paying for this services. Only what happened was like a bomb went off. Across the country we had been providing programs for prostitutes where they came to our meetings instead of being incarcerated. It was working. In fact if you read "Leaving Prostitution" which is a 10 year study into program to help women leave prostitution - ours was the most effective.

Suddenly, it just stops. It gets yanked out from under us and cops, judges, social workers, probation officers, are all told if they refer to us they'll be fired. They don't understand. I don't understand. The women running our meetings move the meetings to another site and we start being stalked and threatened. They were literally having people leave gas cans on their porn or breaking into their homes and only taking the SWA literature out of their homes. I'm trying to figure out what's going on. Those who were leaving our alternative sentencing programs were literally framed and setup. The woman running our Carson City program was set up and charged with elder abuse and got sentenced to five years. She was totally framed. I'm trying to figure out what on earth hit us.

My sponsor says "go back to basics" so I call up the Los Angeles womens jail. They supposedly have an overcrowding problem and they let me take 1800 women out in 1987 - maybe they will now. Only they literally told me "we don't have any prostitutes in our jail". I'm like what? The woman said "we have human trafficking victims - but not prostitutes and unless you have a human trafficking anonymous then your program doesn't qualify". I felt like I had dropped acid! If they're VICTIMS then they're in safe houses or programs NOT IN JAIL. Now I've been wondering why they've been wanting to call a "prostitute" a "victim" and a "pimp" a "trafficker" and now I understand - so they can give me a runaround about not letting them out of jail. I remembered something one of my mentors told me, Greg Pearce.

He told me that jails literally can't operate without an AA or NA meeting because they made it a LAW that they can't. I said "why"? Greg said "because they'll always give you some excuse not to and they'll only do what they have to do in order to keep their license so we made sure they can't operate without an NA meeting going". It's one of the reasons I chose a 12 step program - so the system can't ignore us. They can't ignore us so they've changed the WORDS??? Now I'm beginning to understand why they took one of our African American members and made THREE documentaries making it appear SHE'S our founder. They tried to run with that for a while - until people meeting her realized she couldn't run her way out of a paper bag let alone could she have founded this program. But after the third film where she's impersonating me I looked back at it and said to myself "it's like they want to make it look like the founder is a black woman for some reason"> Here's the ironic part - I am part black! I just look white! Anyway, I'm completely stumped at this system right now. Just stumped. I'm going way back to basics and going back to street outreach and going to the sex workers directly. I can't even talk to those in trafficking programs anymore. They've got them on experimental medications to the point where they're not even thinking properly. They're targeting the African American street workers so that the white escorts step back and say "this doesn't sound like anything I'm seeing".

But frankly, I think it's discrimination that an addict and alcoholic can be afforded a 12 step meeting but the prostitutes can't. I guess I'm going back to the ACLU and see what they think! I never thought I'd say this but I'd rather be a criminal than a victim in this system and I'll tell you why. As a criminal - they have to have probable cause. I have to be let out of jail at a set time also. I have rights also and the right to a speedy trial. However, what I'm seeing them do to these women in these "programs" reminds me of Nazi Germany.

They act up and they threaten them with 5150 and they can lock them up until THEY deem they want to let them go. I also by the way still can't get a straight answer as to what constitutes "probable cause" to get a warrant to ease drop on someone because you think they are 'sex trafficking". These people are doing what any predator does - oh that Jody is crazy so you don't listen to what I'm saying because our members are telling me horror stories. Horror stories of being put in homes where they're being forced to make handmade journals the house operators are selling online and if they don't make their 'quota" they're being threatened with either jail, the psych ward or being thrown out on the street.

Which by the way is why they don't want them knowing about us. ANY predator wants his victim to think they're alone. What does any abusive male do? Isolate his victims so they have nowhere to run. Check out like Mercy Ministries in California. They kept blocking me from talking to their clients and then you can read what they were doing to these women. They threaten them with the streets and the latest one is they're not telling them I'm a "predator" to try and scare them out of calling our hotline for help. Bella - you're one of them. Shame on you. When you're not out there telling these women that are being arrested they don't have to spend one day in jail and all they have to do is ask the judge to attend our program and you let them be carted off to jail where they lose their home, their children, their cars, etc.

To do what? So you and Domina Elle and Maxine can fund raise for sex workers to have lawyers donated? It doesn't work Bella! Do you know what happens when a lawyer donates help to a hooker? Look up Montgomeery Sibley who got disbarred. Look up what happened to Larry Flynt's lawyer who hardly worked again. Look up Mitchell Stein who got 17 years in prison. Lawyers that donate work to prostitutes get run right out of the field, disbarred, or even arrested. It's why we serve as a "go between" and the lawyers help the women through our program so the lawyers can remain "anonymous" also. I'm hearing about cops trafficking women and raping them in back court rooms. I'm hearing about drug treatment centers where the program directors are having the women prostitute for them or threaten them with the streets or jail.

I'm hearing about guards who are using the jails to recruit for brothels - or raping them in their cells at night. And now the one thing they had - which was the ability to come to our program instead of jail is now being removed not because we're an ineffective program but because they're relabeled these women as "victims"? Okay but if that's the case - doesn't that mean even more so they need a recovery program? I look at across the USA and each and every single task force that i see - I don't see victims being helped. I know that because I've gone to these task forces with real victims needing real help and they won't return my calls. I just don't know at this point what can be done to change any of this because these people are just making too much money to let go. So all i can do in the meantime is say if you want help - you can reach us at www.sexworkersanonymous.com Unlike other people - I'm not out here fund raising - I'm out here offering help.
