Leah Remini Partners With Tony Ortega, Of Backpage Child Sex Trafficking Syndicate.

leah3

 

I was a die hard fan and supporter of Leah Remini for YEARS.   Loved the book she published, “Surviving Hollywood and Scientology”.  Or was it the other way around? Either way, I gave her a five star on that.

O.K., no secret I have little tolerance for anyone that chooses to profit off of other people’s misery for a living.  And there are many ways to profit off of other people’s misery.

I was glad to see Leah spend some of her star power to focus on becoming an activist against human trafficking under the banner of “religion”.

 

Then, I couldn’t help but notice that Leah was using her star power to endorse Tony Ortega, the former Editor in Chief of the Village Voice.  Who ran the front (Village Voice) for the Backpage Sex Trafficking Syndicate.  And has been the number one defender of the sex trafficking syndicate. He is also known as “Backpage Tony”.

 

According to two New York City reputable publications focused on media, The Gawker and The Daily Cannibal,  Tony Ortega, along with Mike Lacey and James Larkin,  launched an international human/child sex trafficking syndicate cloaked under “First Amendment rights”.   They converted the Village Voice into a human trafficking syndicate using the classified section, Backpage, and claimed “freedom of the speech”.

The situation wound its way to the halls of Washington under a Senate investigation, costing the U.S. taxpayers millions.  With the release of I Am Jane Doe documentary and the current expose by Washington Post, This is unfolding into an American scandal of monumental proportions.

Leah Remini has a daughter.  She is twelve years old.

The average age of child sex trafficking is 13.5.  According to reputable media publications, the Village Voice was supported by selling women, children, and drugs. Some as young as seven years old. That was Tony Ortega’s pay for over five years.

I wonder how Leah would feel to see her daughter being sold for sex on Backpage?

The truth is, she might be alright with it. I don’t know, and either does you. The illusion in Hollywood is thick.  This is the age of theater.

Leah has been complaining about religious cloaking.  I recalled when she had her daughter baptized in the Catholic Church.  It was on 9/11 actually. Of 2015.

 

 

 

“Remini and her husband, Angelo Pagan, have begun to live their Catholic faith again. On Friday, Sept. 11, they took another definitive step towards the Church and baptized their daughter into the faith.”

Then today, someone wrote me to say Leah and her latest Partner/whatever Tony Ortega is, (on Twitter he appears to be her spokesperson/ chief of staff now) were on Twitter together stalking someone and bullying someone about suspected religious affiliations.  This has become a hobby in some corners. Using your star power to cyberbully, misinform and mislead, is an abuse of power.  Seems to be a virus going about in some corners.

Not exactly the nice Catholic woman she appeared to be in the public relations flood of Catholic/Baptismal media I was showered with late 2015.  Bearing false witness is off code. How is that for religious cloaking?

She is speaking out about child abuse, child neglect, and sexual harassment while planning her schedule, events, and production through Backpage Tony?

I don’t assume anymore. In the last several months I have seen Bruce Jenner become Kaitlyn, Donald Trump take over the White House, and Leah Remini partner up with a notorious child sex trafficker to produce her television special on hippies exploring the occult.  “Assuming” is an old tool that isn’t working for this species anymore.

Using the Catholic Church to boost your public relations and fan base, and complicit approval of child sex trafficking disqualifies me these days as a Leah Remini fan. She has become the father she so bitterly described in her book.  Sadistic disregard for others. That includes the children and families victimized by Tony Ortega and Backpage. Which Leah does not have a problem with.

Leah Remini on Pitching Her A&E Series: “I Said, ‘Don’t Be Pussies”.

In her book, Leah writes, ‘I am selfish and self-centered … have physically threatened people … my husband is a serial cheater and my mother was a slut.’   She also wrote her father off as an abusive criminal. Who does her daughter have left to respect or be proud of?   The child sex trafficker Leah is endorsing on Twitter?

The children being photographed and sold on Backpage aren’t getting the same perks you did Leah.  The hypocrisy is screaming.

The Gawker Archives on Village Voice Child Sex Trafficking

Gawker was an American blog founded by Nick Denton and Elizabeth Spiers and based in New York City focusing on celebrities and the media industry. It was launched in January 2003.

Whereas the Village Voice was a paper for newly minted New Yorkers, meaning people that moved into New York with identity issues and bought the Paper to “be cool”,  the Gawker was a blog for New Yorkers.

The Gawker closed down in 2016 after thirteen years. The blog never catered to advertisers or “sold out”  for greed.  I was a regular reader and found it to be a straight forward New York smart blog.

I have had some difficulty lately finding certain issues they published.  As if the archives are being scrubbed.  If you follow any sequence at the Web Site you will notice some pages “Can’t be found”.

This has been frustrating me since I considered the reporting from that blog valuable information.   So being, I am taking the liberty to share some of the articles here for the purpose of preservation.

Village Voice Has a Child Prostitution Problem (Updated)

Craigslist shut down its Adult Services section, caving to Attorneys General and anti-sex trafficking groups. But, as we pointed out, there are many other places to buy sex online. One, Backpage.com, is being sued by a former child prostitute.

According to Ars Technica, the former child prostitue was hawked on Backpage.com—a Craigslist knockoff owned by Village Voice Media—by her pimp starting at age 14. In her lawsuit, she claims that VVM knew that the explicit pictures her pimp posted of her on Backpage depicted a minor, and that they were advertising prostitution. This knowledge, the suit argues, should put exempt them from the Communications Decency Act, which protects websites from liability for what their users post.

From Ars Technica:

“Defendant had a strong suspicion that the aforementioned crimes were being committed,” reads the complaint. “Defendant had a desire that these posters accomplished their nefarious illegal prostitution activities so that the posters would return to the website and pay for more posting.”

Look for anti-trafficking activists and Attorneys General, flush from their victory over Craigslist, to jump on Backpage and its thriving “adult” section next. The Village Voice sure has been having a lot of penis-related financial troubles, lately. (via mediaite)

Update:
We’ve received a statement from Village Voice Media’s Steve Suskind. In it, he writes:

The lawsuit is riddled with errors. The claim that we knowingly assisted [the child’s pimp] in committing criminal acts is a lie fabricated by a trial lawyer looking for a payday. The attorney seeks to redirect blame from a convicted predator to Backpage.com, which helped prosecute the criminal.

Without our knowledge, the predator violated our terms of use. Backpage.com has stringent safeguards in place to ensure that only adults use the site. We provided the FBI with the perpetrator’s I.P. address and credit-card information.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 recognized that the very nature of the Internet meant that vast traffic depended on the ability of citizens to post directly onto websites like Backpage.com, Facebook, MySpace or eBay, or to have search engines like Google and Yahoo find postings without pre-screening or censorship. The responsibility, under the law, rests with the person supplying the post.

In the last two years, Backpage.com has had 58 million posts, of which 6 million were adult. In this vast exchange of information, law enforcement agencies have asked for our testimony in precisely five underage cases.

Because one case is too many, we have, and we will continue to, cooperate willingly with authorities.

NOTE: Village Voice Media did not cooperate with Authorities and owners were held in contempt of Congress.   Furthermore it was discovered the moderators at Village Voice Classifieds were coaching people on how to place the ads and pocketing the advertising dollars. 
 Minors are trafficking victims.  There is no such thing as a child prostitute. By definition & law, minors are trafficked.
