Child sex slavery is a very real problem and it is growing, even in the United States. This unspeakable evil of depraved lust is a despicable beast and today is the day that you can make a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable and defenseless among us. Become an Abolitionist for the 21st century, even the major search engines are getting involved.
Had I glimpsed just a little of the suffering I would witness and the heartbreak I would endure, I would have fled in the other direction…But I could not foresee any of these things…And many years later, with tears in my eyes, I remembered my decision to follow this God no matter what the cost.

Of Human Bondage
Forced bondage of human beings is as old as time and even modernity cannot totally eradicate how some people will try to subjugate others. Adults sold as domestic servants, sex slaves or both is bad enough, but children must be given special priority and within the borders of this nation it must never be allowed to advance. The commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) includes trafficking for prostitution, pornography and sex tourism. A number of organizations are stepping up to the plate and doing something about this growing problem as even American children are abducted or sold every year into this disgusting industry.
In a riveting article written by, Gen. Charles C. Krulak, (ret.) and published by Fox News on 8 July 2014, he discusses the Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report, released on 20 June by The State Department. What is the TIP Report you ask? This report documents the progress of how the international community works together to combat human trafficking. The scope of this report is enormous and it underscores the reality that human trafficking is world wide. As a result, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on combating forced labor and modern-day slavery. That victims are trafficked for both sex and labor, forced to work in virtually every sector of the U.S. economy – from farming and manufacturing to meat and poultry processing, domestic service, and the hospitality sector is alarming.
The General declares that the American anti-trafficking movement has been working to secure important laws and policies that focus on victims. He specifically refers to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, and this year’s report, “The Journey From Victim to Survivor” as highlights to these victories. Yet, he warns that anti-trafficking efforts have had no significant impact on reducing the overall incidence of trafficking.
The stark contrast between the number of people trapped in modern slavery – 21 million – and the number of reported prosecutions of traffickers worldwide — 9,460. Dive deeper and you find that of those prosecutions, nearly one in three did not result in a conviction.
He further points out that
Under U.S. law, human trafficking entails the recruiting, transporting, transferring, or harboring of another human being, using abduction, threats, force, or coercion to control that person – and make a profit off of them –through sexual exploitation or other forms of forced work. Some victims are abducted while others are coerced or deceived. Fleeing poverty, war, violence or abuse, victims seek a better life, only to be duped or coerced and held against their will.
In my humble opinion, the best part of Gen. Krulak’s post was to call out legitimate companies as eager participants in the dirty business of not only laundering money, but providing cover for the nasty deeds of recruitment, transportation, and housing of victims that traffickers commit. Yet, the General does allow for the possibility that
Many companies are co-opted unwittingly, and may not realize the threats they face, and the risks to their employees or brands.
For years we have all seen how this unfair advantage hurts U.S. companies in particular and the American economy as a whole. That traffickers,
Do not pay taxes on their income – even as they create enormous need for public spending – on security and policing, border control, and victim rehabilitation.
Is enough to upset anyone.
In conclusion, Gen. (Ret.) Krulak suggests that to combat this problem we must,
Redouble all efforts to prosecute and convict such offenders, which means not only going after the slave holders – as is now largely done – but working back through the network of exploiters, and punishing the recruiters, the transporters, those who house and guard victims, and those who launder money and bribe officials. Gen. Charles C. Krulak (ret.), 8 July 2014, Fox News
That the General is presently working on a new campaign with Human Rights First to help the government and law enforcement do just that, shows just what can be done when ex military members take charge in the civilian sector. Leading the vanguard of an assault is what Marines do!
Gen. Charles “Chuck” C. Krulak is retired commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps and former member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is president of Birmingham-Southern College and is working with Human Rights First on a new campaign to develop an effective strategy to combat human trafficking. Krulak’s long and distinguished military career included two tours of duty in Vietnam and as commanding general of the 2nd Force Service Support Group at Camp LeJeune, N.C., during the Gulf War.
On Child Sex Slavery!
One association on the front line of rescuing these Organizations innocent victims is Operation Underground Railroad. This is a group of former CIA, FBI, Navy SEALs, and Green Berets dedicated to the mission of saving children from monsters. These are individuals that have had extensive training for just such operations. Make no mistake, people who transport and trade children are very dangerous thugs. With children time is always a crucial factor as damage done is magnified on a scale that even adults have difficulty dealing with. Therefore, even though the United States government often leads the way in these efforts, many times it is obstructed by bureaucratic red tape and jurisdictional limitations as children of both American citizens and undocumented parents are taken across our borders. When this happens it becomes much more difficult to find and rescue these children as corruption is systemic and resources to aid in their delivery is scarce. That is why we must intervene by assisting those who are willing to take this risk and bring these children home.
Another organization that has been on the front line of coordinating with other private agencies and local law enforcement to rescue children from sex slavery is The Exodus Road.
As a coalition of investigators who work towards the rescue of enslaved victims, this organization has much to offer anyone who wants to get involved. Ordinarily I would supply the web address but at the time of this update it was not working very well, so I will supply the link to a website of a couple who work with the Exodus Road, who can tell you all about the organization.
By our donations we can support those who do the hard work. Recent missions have included excursions into Honduras, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, which you can read about on their website. Often children who are kidnapped or sold to these devils suffer from diseases to include HIV/AIDS, drug addiction, pregnancy, malnutrition, and even death. According to the U.S. State Department, the countries of Thailand, Cambodia, India, Brazil and Mexico have been identified as leading hotspots of child sexual exploitation. Those violated in the ‘tourism’ trade often become social pariahs with no hope for any real future in the land of their birth. Yet, even in the USA this is happening and the villains could be living next door, but here we have local law enforcement and the FBI. Operation Underground Rescue is a private agency that steps in to do what it can. After the children are saved they are taken to a place where they can be medically evaluated and receive emotional treatment as the scars are very deep.
Update on the Reality TV Show Idea!
Though talk of a new reality television series about this subject called “The Abolitionists” has been discussed, at this time I can find no further information on the status of this project. Furthermore, since the video clip has been taken down, I must assume that the idea has been shelved, at least for now. However, Gerald R. Molen, a co-producer of Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List, has been identified as an interested participant. See link:
FROM THE PRODUCERS OF JURASSIC PARK
Perhaps, it was decided that too much fame and popularity would create problems for the very real mission of rescuing children from this vile industry. Though reality does not get better than that, it can become more problematic to find dragons, much less slay them, if the knights are over exposed. However, that does not mean that good people who donate to this cause can’t see what their hard earned money has helped to accomplish.
You too can participate in this noble cause and become an Abolitionist!
In addition to the up close and personal violation of children, a new form of this sick perversion is evolving that you must know about called webcam child porn. Even though the child is not actually touched by anyone he/she is still forced to participate in disgusting acts with strangers online. Make no mistake such activity is very destructive to the psychological, emotional and spiritual well being of an individual’s personal development when introduced to such action too young and with no clear moral guidance. Of course, with the argument that morality should be nothing more than a social construct in what is increasingly becoming a “Godless” secular West, therein lies the problem. Check out this new and equally alarming trend.
What The Search Engines Are Doing!
An Internet Safety Summit was recently hosted by British Prime Minister David Cameron in London, where representatives of Google, Microsoft, and other search engine companies gathered to discuss what could be done to stop the distribution of child porn on the Internet.
Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google, announced in Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, that Google and other Internet search engine companies like Microsoft are already actively working with law enforcement agencies to eradicate the ability of a pedophile from sharing illegal pictures on the Web.
While society will never wholly eliminate such depravity We should do everything in our power to protect children from harm.Google CEO Eric Schmidt
He further claimed that Google had fine-tuned it’s Search,
to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results.
Moreover, he declared that the implementation of other new changes will include warnings from both Google and charities posted at the top of more than 13,000 search results that will digitally fingerprint illicit images so they can be removed from Google’s system and that Google engineers are developing technology that will identify videos of child sexual abuse with the hope of making it available to other Internet companies and child safety organizations by 2014. Yet, he admitted that no algorithm is ever going to be without flaws, but the changes have already cleaned up the results for over 100,000 queries. The impact will be global as the new changes will take affect within the next six months in more than 150 languages. Published 18 Nov., 2013 / FoxNews.com
