Episode 4: SICKOS IN SUITS: Who Are These People?

(Original air date 09/21/17)

​​Episode Description


Discussing the issue of global child pedophilia is one of the hardest issues we tackle, but we simply cannot look the other way. With the dark web, evolving technologies and the development of cyber communities, our society is undergoing a very disturbing evolution. 

Since 2016, 11 (eleven) U.S. Mayors have been accused of child sex-related crimes. These are seemingly normal people. These are men we elect and trust. Men who put on suits and hold leadership roles in our communities. They are educated, sophisticated and understand that pedophilia is a crime that our society will not tolerate. Yet somehow they believe they are exempt. Surely they are intelligent enough to understand that they WILL get caught and pay a very high price. And still they continue.

Join us this week as we explore the unique 21st century phenomena of cyber-communities promoting and accepting child exploitation.

Episode 3: SPECIAL REBROADCAST: When Fantasy Turns to Nightmare

(Original air date 07/14/16)

​​Episode Description


This week we are going to continue to explore the intricacies of the grooming process and how predators use our own imaginations to ensnare the vulnerable.  Whether it is an adult male in Thailand, a single woman in Las Vegas, a sweet 14-year-old girl sending an Instagram or a teen boy obsessed with winning at World of Warcraft, no one is safe.
 
Predators are manipulators. What starts out as an innocent fantasy quickly ensnares the victim and they are powerless to get free. This show will delve deep into the abyss of human exploitation and the psychology behind blackmail, sextortion, forced labor and prostitution.
 
The Good News... Once you understand it. You can recognize it and help others so they won't be victimized. Join with us this week and educate yourself to become a LEADER in combating human exploitation. 
 
EDUCATION is the key to combating EXPLOITATION. We need YOU to get informed and get INVOLVED!

Episode 5: Join Us As We Look at Pending Sex Trafficking Legislation:
In The Line of Fire – Backpage and The Trucking Industry!

(Original air date 09/28/17)

​​Episode Description


This week we will focus on the challenges of trying to control the activities of commercial sex advertisers like Backpage through legislation and the impact on protecting citizens’ right to privacy when using the internet. We will also look at the impact on the trucking industry and bills proposing to penalize commercial drivers who engage in the solicitation of sex while on duty.

STOP ENABLING SEX TRAFFICKERS ACT (SESTA) would amend the Communications Act of 1934 to clarify that section 230 of that Act does not prohibit the enforcement against providers and users of interactive computer services of Federal and State criminal and civil law relating to sex trafficking.

THE COMBATING HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN COMMERCIAL VEHICLES ACT would designate a human trafficking prevention coordinator to the U.S. Department of Transportation and increase outreach, education and reporting efforts for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

THE NO HUMAN TRAFFICKING ON OUR ROADS ACT would disqualify from operating a commercial motor vehicle for life an individual who uses a commercial motor vehicle in committing a felony involving human trafficking.

Join us this week as we explore new sex trafficking legislation.

Episode 2: SPECIAL REBROADCAST: The Power of Fantasy in Grooming

(Original air date 07/07/16)

​​Episode Description

Victims of sex trafficking are most often lured, groomed and controlled by pimps and predators. Pimping is not about sex. It is all about creating a facade. A dream. A Fantasy. Stimulating the want in the mind of a vulnerable person for something they don't currently have. We sometimes call that grooming.

 This week's show is going to examine the power of the grooming process. Sometimes the smartest people are lured in. Sex and fantasy can be amazing or it can be a prison. How do you break the fantasy of a 15-year-old girl being groomed by a predator? She wants to believe with all her heart it is real, but you see the warning signs. This is a show every parent and grandparent should hear.


Episode 8: Tetrad Core: Working With Law Enforcement, Media and Your Community to Make a Difference

(Original air date 10/19/17)

​​Episode Description


This week we will have as our guest Donna Staples with Tetrad Core. Their mission is to collaborate with law enforcement agencies across the country to assist them in stings focusing on online pedophilia and sexual assault. 

Tetrad Core’s main goal is educating parents and students about the dangers the internet can pose for those who are unaware. The newest apps, video games, and social media can all present a danger to children.

They are also currently collaborating with an educational company on creating curriculum that can be introduced into schools that will teach students, and parent how to be aware and safe when accessing the Internet.
 
Tetrad Core helped with sting operations with Chris Hansen, “Hansen vs. Predator,” (previously of “To Catch a Predator”) in Connecticut that resulted in 11 arrests and convictions.

Episode 11: Saving Children From Sex Slave Traffickers While Saving Elephants From Extinction

(Scheduled  air date 11/09/17)


​​Episode Description


Randy McKinney is the founder of African Wildlife Initiative.In the Central African Republic, terrorist groups are targeting children, kidnapping them for use in the sex trade and as child soldiers. These same groups are also poaching elephants to finance their exploits. AWI is an Alaska-based organization working to protect and rescue children and elephants by training and supporting local people in CAR to defend their communities. Randy founded AWI and leads efforts on the ground in CAR. He is currently living in Alaska and available for speaking engagements.

Because of the dangerous political and social environment in CAR, it’s impossible for foreigners to enter the Central African Republic without special permission from the highest levels of government. The type of person who can and will go needs to be uniquely qualified and prepared. Randy is one of few men who can pull it off, equipped by his experience in law enforcement and as former CEO of an international security company. He is also a pilot and a doctor who has senior level management experience working in remote locations engaged in large-scale construction and mining projects often on the African continent.

Mr. McKinney has been contracted by the European Commission-supported organization, Ecofaune, to provide air support for their counter poaching operations located in a 41,600 square mile region of the northern and eastern part of the Central African Republic. As a result, he is positioned to do what few people in the US would consider plausible, let alone possible- to rescue children from the grips of slavery, mutilation and death and train others to do the same.

Episode 6: Change and the Evolution of Technology

(Original air date 10/05/17)

​​Episode Description


Have you ever thought how much your life has changed in just the last five to ten years?

Do you realize that you are living through one of most the volatile times in history?

Remember pagers, telephone booths, collect calls and telephone operators?

Remember when families used to eat dinner together and actually looked each other in the eyes and read their souls?

Remember when a guy actually asked a girl’s parents if he could take her out on a date?

Remember when animated cartoons were safe for kids?

This week we will explore the many changes that are taking place in our society. We will talk about “Angry Birds” and the new Netflix series, “Big Mouth.” We will examine apps and how they change our kids’ behavior and, more important, their perception of themselves. We will explore ways families can still maintain a strong influence on their child(ren) so they can develop into solid leaders with strong moral values. And, we will look at how access by total strangers can lead to the grooming and exploitation of our children.

Episode 12: Female Perpetrators: The Role of Women in Child Sexual Exploitation (Part 1 of 2)

(Original  air date 12/01/16) | Special Rebroadcast 11/16/17)


​​Episode Description


It is a well known fact that women and children are the most exploited victims of sexual exploitation. No doubt about it.

What most of society does not recognize is the significant number of cases where women are the perpetrators. Approximately 60% of cases posted on the Million Kids Facebook Page involve a female as a perpetrator. Surprisingly, many females are involved with child pornography. Sometimes, the perpetrator is the victim’s own mother.

In sex trafficking cases, the woman often acts as a “bottom girl,” who does the recruiting, training, marketing and management of the girls being exploited. In some instances, the “bottom girl” is as severely abused and exploited as the victims. In other instances, she is a hardened sociopath, who inflicts a more severe punishment and exploitation than the males involved in sex trafficking rings.

Join us  as we explore several cases where the female is the perpetrator. We will examine large-scale Asian and Latin American sex trafficking rings led by women, as well as individual cases where women aggressively exploited victims of child sex trafficking. We will look at cases where women were prosecuted for producing and/or collecting large libraries of child pornography. We will try to understand the psychological aspects of female-dominated exploitation and the impact on the victim. We will also explore if there is a different standard of sentencing when the perpetrator is a woman.

Episode 9: The Victor Marx Story

(Original air date 10/26/17)

​​Episode Description


A child who has suffered trauma is a child easy to be exploited.

A child who is from a foster home, broken home, or is homeless is a child easy to exploit.

Predators have a hiearchy... Availability and Vulnerability.

This week host, Opal Singleton, will have as our guest Victor Marx, an amazingly motivational man who teaches young people how not to become a victim. Trust me... You don’t want to miss this show!!

Born to an absentee father who was a pimp and a drug dealer; who didn't claim him as his own child, Victor Marx was left for dead in a cooler by a child molester at the age of 5 in the deep South. By the time he was a teenager, Victor endured abuse from several step-fathers, attended 14 different schools and lived in 17 different houses. He was doing drugs in an effort to escape the emotional pain of his childhood. As an adult, Victor was diagnosed with mental illness and post-traumatic stress disorder. It seemed as if there was no way out. He could have chosen to remain a victim. Instead, he learned what it means to become victorious. Victor Marx travels the world as founder and President of All Things Possible, a national faith- based organization. Using his expertise as a 7th Degree Black Belt in Keichu-Do - a mixture of Karate and Jiu-Jitsu - and a 5th Degree in Weapons, Victor engages audiences of all types, delivering a powerful message of hope and restoration.

“Is it really possible for a person to break the cycle of Anger, Abuse, Addiction and Unforgiveness? I am here to tell you that you can! It's all here in my story, how I came from an abusive childhood, drugs, alcohol and anger to a life of peace, purpose and being married to the same gal for 24 years with 5 kids to boot!” - Victor Marx

Episode 7: How one woman took on Teen Vogue’s Tutorial ‘A Guide to Anal Sex’

(Original air date 10/12/17)

​​Episode Description


This week we will have special guest, Elizabeth Johnston from Activist Mommy. Elizabeth took on Teen Vogue Magazine by making a YouTube video asking her followers to burn the magazine because of an article entitled, “Anal Sex: What You Need to Know.” Elizabeth is a mother, activist and vlogger. She has been featured on Fox and Friends, The New York Times, The Blaze and The Christian Broadcasting Network.

Over the past two months, the media has reached a new level of sickness. We can hardly communicate “enough is enough!” Teen Vogue Magazine published an article, complete with diagrams as a “tutorial,” for teens to consider anal sex. Their readership targets girls aged 12-17. The article was very explicit and encouraged young people to consider it as an alternative to vaginal sex. Also, recently Netflix released a new TV series called, “Big Mouth.” Netflix defines the show as “an adult-animated comedy series that explores the teenage adventures of puberty,” which includes a dancing penis’ and very graphic discussions of ejaculation.

As I have reviewed these media offerings, I realized just how much impact these types of media have on the grooming of our children. The statistics show that 70% of youth in commercial sex were previously sexually violated. And I thought… ENOUGH! What can a parent or leader do to counteract media that is hell bent on making certain our children see the dark side of sexuality.

Join us this week as we explore how the media is hypersexualizing our kids.
