human-traffickers

Guys human sex trafficking is literally so out of control right now.
It’s doubtless you’ve seen all the news stories and posts around the internet about kidnapped loved ones and all the ways they try to lure you in. I woke up to an amber alert on my phone this morning.

I can’t stress this enough. If you are a young female-bodied or female-presenting person, do not travel alone if you can help it. Carry as much protection as you can; pepper spray, tazer, knife, anything. Don’t use public restrooms. Avoid anywhere that isn’t crowded or where you can be plainly seen by multiple people. Always have a contingency plan, friends that will call the police with your location if you don’t text them by a certain time. There are a few apps now (I don’t know any by name, sorry) worth looking into that will do this automatically when you set a timer and don’t turn it off.

It’s less safe than ever right now. Don’t be the one walking around thinking “it could never happen to me”. It isn’t just men doing the kidnapping, don’t trust anyone. Be careful. Stay alert.

Big goal you are working towards?
Airborne –> Ranger –> 101st –> Deploy

Human trafficking is real and a very serious issue. Please, talk to your friends and children and let know about this danger because the media doesn’t want to talk about it.

The media only cares if young, pretty white women go missing. A black woman does not even move the meter. The media knows America only cares about white women…

The only way we are going to bring them home is working together!

Dear Tumblr

How about you stop worrying about first world problems and issues such as makeup not having the right color for your skin tone? How about we worry about more important things like human trafficking, children being abused, racism on both ends of the spectrums, the many people and children forced to work under harmful conditions in third world countries?

Unless you are a victim of abuse or faint of heart

People have to realize, it’s statistically impossible that there are no pedophile rinks in your government, and in big banks, and in international corporations. Not to mention how well connected to each other these institutions are. There are tens of millions of people around those circles, around the world, and you only need a sample of a few hundred to surely find someone who has raped multiple minors. There are more than a few hundred people who have hundreds of millions of dollars, and you can only imagine how much you could get away with if you had those kinds of resources and connections. The more powerful someone is, the easier -not harder, easier- it is for them to get away with it. Here’s the proof of all of that.


I also wanted to highlight a specific name from this video

22:17: “the flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s island fucking frequently.”

“Billionaire hedge-fund mogul, Jeffrey Epstein, became a free man five years after he was first accused of sexually abusing underage girls.

… During Epstein’s terms of house arrest, he made several trips each month to his New York home and his private Caribbean island. In the early stage of his sentence for soliciting prostitution for a minor … he was allowed out to his office each day. Meanwhile Epstein had settled more than a dozen lawsuits brought by the underage girls who were recruited to ‘perform massages’ at his Palm Beach mansion. Seven victims reached a last-minute deal … days before the scheduled trial. Each received well over a million dollars, an amount that will hardly dent Epstein’s 2 billion net worth.

The Palm Beach Police Department identified 17 local girls who had contact with Epstein before the age of consent. The youngest was 14 and many were younger than 16, and that was just one of those things many homes around the world20:38he also owned property in New York, Santafe, Paris, London, and the Caribbean.

The subsequent investigation by the FBI, reaching as far back as 2001, identified roughly 40 victims, not counting Nada Marcinkova whom Epstein referred to as his ‘Yugoslavian sex slave’

There are some heavy allegations surrounding politicians and royalty who spend their time with a convicted pedophile [Jeffry Epstein].

…. Brought in on the billionaire’s private jets, nicknamed by locals as the ‘Lolita Express’, numerous girls were allegedly taken to his 78th acre little st. James hideout in the US Virgin Islands. It is claimed that they were made to take part in depraved orgies….

Court papers claim visit included prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders. The flight logs also show that Bill Clinton went to Jeffrey Epstein’s island frequently. The flight logs show that he went there 26 times in 3 years.

 The most powerful people in the world are doing this with impunity because nobody has the power to stop them, and when they are -like Epstein- finally brought trial, he simply pays off the victims and escapes the sentencing“

All of a sudden I have a newfound respect for Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher, testifying in front of the Senate about stopping human trafficking, was told by Senator John McCain that he was “much better looking in the movies.”  His response: to blow McCain a kiss before talking about his experiences working to stop human trafficking with his software company Thorn.   It is interesting to see a man subjected to comments about his appearance meant to make him appear weaker, when usually it is women who suffer this, but he handled it with aplomb and went on to do his job.

Where are they? Outrage over perceived increase in missing black, Latina girls in D.C.
Black lawmakers are calling on the FBI to investigate whether there is an increase in cases of missing black children and teens in the nation's capital.

Unfortunately there isn’t an increase in missing girls of color (which means this is NORMAL!) And missing black girls are usually classified as runaways which means no Amber Alert! Anyone else seeing an issue here???

“Here’s a pretty unbelievable story: Laurie Holden is an actress who plays Andrea on “The Walking Dead,” but she isn’t just an actress. Holden also works as a human rights activist with a group called Operation Underground Railroad. It’s an organization run by an ex-CIA agent named Tim Ballard that works to take down unsavory human traffickers and the like. So, Holden and the group went down to Colombia to try to take down a group of men who were trafficking in underage prostitutes. Ballard, Holden and co. ingratiated themselves into this group and set up an elaborate party in an effort to catch these men in the act….” Adam Pliskin, Elite Daily 

“For months, the group put together a massive sting operation in cooperation with Colombian authorities. They each had an elaborate cover story. Ballard’s story was that he was the best man in a wedding back in the U.S. and was looking to hire several underage prostitutes for a big bachelor party in Cartagena. The cover was meant to lure the sex traffickers into a setup so that Ballard and his team could rescue the girls, many of whom were under 18. … In order for Colombian officials to prosecute the sex traffickers, they have to catch them exchanging money for the girls on tape. … Holden’s job was to “keep [the traffickers] occupied by the pool area while Ballard and the undercover officers worked to catch the traffickers on tape exchanging money.” Candace Smith and Aristides Pinedo-Burns, ABC News 

“When the traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests.  During the ordeal Holden works with social workers to comfort the girls, who fear they’re the ones who will be in trouble and that they won’t be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed after the fact. But she should also be extremely proud of her work.” Ian Cervantes, Complex

Children at Risk. Madagascar. - This young student at the only Christian school on Madagascar’s northern island of Nosy Be has a hopeful future. Many of the country’s children are at risk of being exploited - for labor, sex trafficking, human trafficking, and even organ harvesting. 

PSA if you got something like this in the mail it’s a scam. Do not call back for an interview. A simple google search will tell you they’ve been involved with human trafficking and preying on teens and young adults who don’t know any better. When you call they will tell you you’re “lucky you called so soon” because they’re on a “first come first serve basis” for “these” jobs, promising $15 or more an hour. Glad I found all this out before my interview in the morning.

hm. i’m a bit late with it but let me get this straight.

monel lied, didn’t tell her that he’s a literal slave owner, and kara is the one who needed to realize that she’s the one who’s wrong? for not letting him explain why he lied about being a slave owner? for nine months. he lied to get into her pants n she’s the one who made a mistake??? her mistake being reacting badly to lies n human trafficking?
