Ashton Kutcher Testifies as Thousands of Sex Trafficking Busts Occur

The actor Ashton Kutcher recently testified before Congress. Many are unaware that the press-dubbed ‘pretty’ boy who once dated actress Demi Moore, and who now has two children with actress Mila Kunis, is also an active voice against human sex trafficking.

Kutcher is the co-founder of Thorn, an organization that has developed software to reduce human sex trafficking violation investigations for law enforcement from three years to three weeks. In his emotional testimony before members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, he thanked the leaders in the fight to expose the magnitude of the problem, and talked about the importance of stopping the inbound and outbound pipelines which lead to sex abuse of women and children.

Kutcher tearfully said,

“I’ve seen things that no person should ever see. I’ve seen video content of a child that is the same age as mine being raped by an American man that was a sex tourist in Cambodia. This child was so conditioned by her environment that she thought she was engaging in play.”

Kutcher noted that the marginalization of refugees, and society’s refusal to provide the most basic human need of love for people in numerous countries, was leading to the epidemic of human trafficking.

He continued,

“I’ve been on the other end of a phone call from my team asking for my help because we had received a call from the Department of Homeland Security, telling us that a 7-year-old girl was being sexually abused and that content was being spread on the Dark Web … They’d watched her for three years and they could not find the perpetrator, [and were] asking us for help. We were the last line of defense. An actor and his foundation were the last line of defense.”

It seems that line of defense if growing though. Arrests for child sex trafficking, pedophilia, and human slave trade have ramped up considerably in the past several months.

In Tennessee, 42 people were arrested for sex trafficking. More than 8,779 additional contacts were also made by a sting conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

474 arrests were just made in Los Angeles in a state-wide human trafficking operation that was exposed, and dozens of sexually exploited children were rescued.

While the shocking discovery that Hillary and Bill Clinton provided assistance to convicted child trafficker, Laura Silsby, resulting in a reduced sentence for child trafficking has been swept aside by mainstream media, and pizzagate revelations were said to be the work of “conspiracy theorists,” five individuals were arrested in Bucks County, Pennsylvania as part of what authorities described as a fetish-themed child predator sex ring.

Only weeks ago, 108 arrests were reported in Illinois as what was described as part of a national sex trafficking sting operation occurring in 15 different states, with 178 individuals also being arrested in Texas on the same day as part of the same John’s Suppression Initiative. Arrestees included the sports agent responsible for getting Roger Clemens the highest ever single-season Major League Baseball contract.

The arrests continue, and the dark underbelly of human trafficking, most often with the intent to use people as sex slaves for the well-off and politically high-up, is being exposed as never before.

No corner is safe. Even an adoption agency, the European Adoption Consultants (EAC) in Strongsville, Ohio has been debarred from continued operation by the FBI, citing failures “to adequately supervise…preventing the sale, abduction, exploitation, or trafficking of children.”

Kutcher pointed to the U.S. Foster Care system as a hot bed of criminal activity in this regard,

There are 500,000 kids in foster care today. I was astonished to find out that 70 per cent of the inmates in prison across this country have touched the foster care system and 80 per cent of the people on death row were, in some point and time, exposed to the foster care system.

Fifty per cent of these kids will not graduate high school and 95 per cent of them will not get a college degree. But the most staggering statistic that I found was that foster care children are four times more likely to be exposed to sexual abuse. 

That’s a breeding ground for trafficking. I promise you that’s a breeding ground for trafficking.”

But the reason I looked at foster care is that it’s a microcosm, it’s a sample set that we have pretty extraordinary data around to date, even though we can’t seem to fix it. It’s a microcosm for what happens when displacement happens abroad as the unintended consequences of our actions or in actions in the rest of the world.”

Interestingly these domestic arrests come at that same time that Pope Francis, a man linked to sexual abuse and its cover-up throughout the Vatican, has thrown out Catholic officials for “handing out condoms,” which many think is a cover for a larger scandal.

Oddly, Vatican official under Pope Francis recently told newly appointed bishops that they have no obligation to report instances of clerical sexual abuse, as it’s the responsibility of the victims and their families.

Internationally, pedophilia rings that are suspected of direct involvement in the sexual abuse of children are also being exposed.

An Internet pedophile ring with as many as 70,000 members — thought to be the world’s largest —was recently uncovered. The European police agency Europol said in a statement that “Operation Rescue” had identified 670 suspects and that 230 abused children in 30 countries had been taken to safety. More children are expected to be found, Europol said.

With help from Kutcher’s non-profit, and the work of thousands of men and women around the world, the evil hand of child sex trafficking and human slave trade is more than being slapped. It’s being stopped.

    so stupid
    how are you going to put an actor up there

    • Equalizer

      You had me when you discussed an honest attempt to help with human trafficking of young children, then you lost me when you brought up the name of john Mccain who is a “treasonous” war-monger who just happens to have been a prisoner of war now working for the wrong/dark side of Anti-American George Soros and bill gates from hell cabal mentality. Then you brought up Foster Care System you won me back! Well done! Then you really lost me when you brought up “displacement abroad” you are speaking in regards to bringing millions of radicalized terrorist mooslim refugees into this country against our constitution!!! You use this so called “humanity effort” under the guise of helping and saving of abused “children” but the individuals that are coming in are “adult trained and radicalized terrorist Males” that are here to undermine our Constitution and wreak havoc/ lop off heads upon our Christian people, mass rapes, no desire to integrate with American culture or community and run Americans over in rented trucks. This is treason, this ignorant treasonous movement will completely destabilize our country and our communities across the country. Focus on your “software” and not on politics, specially if you are being advised by a treasonous monster like john Mccain.

  • Scoob Adler

    Dude..he is trying to take off the heat from PizzaGate and the pedos in D.C…he is also a freemason and is into the Kabbalah

  • wiseoldlady

    The writer of this article needs to be more accurate. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were married for several years.

  • Arte Vespule

    So is Kutcher a Clinton supporter? Or did he vote for Trump? I can’t take him seriously if he is a Clinton supporter. Just sayin’

  • charlie2dogs

    rapist, child molesters and pedo’s should be put to death

    • Andy

      fair trial & if found guilty (not with circumstantial evidence, but with direct evidence PLUS the testimony of the abused)

      execution forthwith

  • foon1e

    Dude! Where’s My Rabbi??!!

  • Robot999

    I admit I did not listen to the whole testimony but did a cursory overview. What I DID NOT HEAR: Anything about the criminal pedo’s in HOLLYWOOD. If he doesn’t address the Elephant in the Room, then he is just a distraction/liar and maybe even complicit in the crimes against children. Please respond if you know he has mentioned / focused on the criminals in Hollywood or not, thanks.

    There comes a point when after making millions, they call you and say, you HAVE to do this or that. Lets try the KISS system, Keep It Simple Stupid. This be BillyP. Don’t jew it up.

  • nyetyme19

    Not really sure what side of the political spectrum he is on- I do know however that he has some conservative values, but that doesn’t really matter to me. Look at what he is trying to do here and the seriousness of problem that everyone seems to rather ignore. While everyone is looking for an alter motive of him going after human trafficking pedophile sex ring, The guy is simply trying to make a difference in the world and is addressing the elephant in the room. Which is the US has a huge pedophilia problem, but nothing of sort being reported by MSM. This should tell everyone how deeply involved people of power (Hollywood included) are in this country when it comes to this issue and sickening to the core it really is. At least he’s trying to make a difference, hopefully it doesn’t cost him his life.

  • Just Sayin

    Ashton Kutcher is a shill. He sits on the board of the (John) McCain Institute and here he is asking for government funding from… John McCain. He is ACTING. He doesn’t care about exploited children, he fronts for the people who are exploiting them. Watch the woman to his left. She is trying hard not to smirk the entire time. This is called, “duping delight.”

    • Andy

      maybe he’s yet another hollywood child victim,, maybe he’s even smart enough to realise we can only confront ONE elephant at a time,,, and even smarter to know that it takes INSIDERS to come out & reveal the horror

      if he is a child victim (as are most celebs) maybe he does have a dog in the show and he’s working his own way through & out

      only he knows for sure

    • Robot999

      Thanks for sharing. I’ve been looking for a better site. BIN is too much click bait / ads, which is too bad.

  • Billy the man

    I don’t care who is molesting children, get them, castrate them, deport them back to where they came from unless they are US citizens and if the are female, remove their clit. Put them in prison for the rest of their life. Better yet find an island with shark infested waters turn them lose there and once a month drop rice, potatoes and beans just make sure there are no trees or anything to make a vessel with. Give them some fishing line and hooks that is more then some natives villagers have and they survive. Forget about em.

    • Andy

      1st offender rapists should have all their bits removed, so they have to sit to pee like women for the rest of their lives (after doing serious jail time & learning all the intricacies of jail etiquette), so they can NEVER reproduce & continue the cycle

      2nd offender rapists = death

      1st offender child molesters = death

      personally, i don’t care if it’s nature or nurture – many of us have had hard childhoods, but the vast majority learn from and grow through it towards LOVE,, only the weakest perpetuate the cycle which was foistered upon them

      END it via death

  • Jdelec

    I would like to know why he would watch a tape of a 7 year old being raped. Just watching a tape like that is a crime yet he did.

  • tacomachuck

    Keep up the good fight, the traffikcers and abusers will go down.
