America’s Dirty Little Secret

Sex trafficking has become the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns. It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked annually. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances. This is an industry that revolves around cheap sex on the fly, with young girls and women who are sold to 50 men each day for $25 apiece, while their handlers make $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year. This is not a problem found only in big cities. It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation. And the only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it. This is America’s dirty little secret.

  1. This is the swamp.
    Very good/accurate/effective graphic.
    Thank you for your work.

  2. Timely and an exceptional presentation.
    How sad! Amerika the exceptional people. Mind you, it’s likely worldwide.

  3. So disheartening. Thanks for calling it out.

    Unfortunately like every big business, up the chain it’s run by the big players – namely governments/ judiciaries, law enforcers, social services etc. with the advertising pushed out by Hollywood , music industry, MMS. I live in Japan where every convenience store sells light child porn. It’s “normal”. Given the powers that be, for the most part either play a part or condone this practice, there will need to be blood in the streets to tear them from power to stop this industry which is a fragment of the evil which is being foisted on us as normal.

    • Robert Diggins says:

      Agreed. Just as other black markets, the cabal at the top is responsible for the stand down. Not only for money, but for compromising the government itself.

      We have the evidence, corroboration, and names of many of the power elite mafia, centered in Chicago, IL. The FBI, as well as other IC organizations have the culprits on video and audio.

      Not only that, but these black markets (drugs, arms, state secrets, and human trafficking) and their political/mafia networks are directly connected to the Gulen network, the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, and NATO.

      This connects to the GWOT, and its trigger, 9/11.

      It’s a stand down by compromised and dirty officials and officers, NOT incompetence!

      Terrorism is NOT blowback.

      The narrative, the evidence, corroboration, and names are in the public record, from the Krikorian Case, and the few outlets who have done limited exposure of this reality. Sibel has put out a public challenge to one of these corrupt representatives.

      See it all, based on The Motherlode File, from the FBI Chicago Field Office, as well as Sibel’s knowledge of other aspects of this cabal and her sworn testimony, which legally broke the gag orders placed on her (AND CONGRESS), during the W Bush Administration, with Mueller heading the FBI, here:

      Watch “Special Report- State Secrets: Sibel Edmonds Uncovers ‘The Untouchables’” on YouTube

      Please review this video multiple times, until the depth of it really sinks in. Spread awareness and, as John Whitehead said, also educate your family and local communities and governments.

      I think we need a package, with published articles and videos, along with Sibel’s historic and historical narrative, to deliver to government, the media, and the community, at every level. We have enough for convictions, at the highest levels, now.

      Thank you, Newsbud!

    Thank you for this report. There are however many women’s groups doing a lot on this. You however did not quote the number of women trafficked nationally or worldwide, only children. What is the number of women? And it has only been when children are involved that mainstream commenters have even dared to comment on this. Third, this analysis misses the fact that porn became hardcore directly after the women’s movement of the 70s and in response to it. Liberals sold out the women then when they refused to support prominent anti-porn activists like Dworkin and MacKinnon. Finally, I am not sure if you said it, but this is torture and MacKinnon and others are trying to get people to see these crimes as against international law, human rights and AS torture crimes.

    Hey Kurt,

    Such a careful report is most appreciated. Show notes too. I’ll quibble only a little. You state, “Culture is grooming these young people to be preyed upon.” The vagueness of this reification “culture” in your usage and that of “guilty”, as in “we are all guilty” is confusing. That was a good lead-in for a conversation on sexuality (and repression of same) and porn, in addition to repression and suppression of free thinking pleasure; and, war, carceral state as a psychological tool. That would probably be too much for one presentation.

    Yes, this is a horrendous situation with no foreseeable relief without our agency.
