Updates coming after 24 hour visitation review

The frankreport has not posted anything in the last 36 hours in order to review visitation numbers and content.

It is important to me that the posts are accurate and true.  And that the subjects are given every opportunity to address issues presented. Counter references and opinions are desired.

One of the main subjects of this website is Keith Raniere, a man who leads an organization called NXIVM/Executive Success Programs.  Many things are claimed about his company, the program and Raniere.

Some of them appear to be untrue. Some are true. Much of it is controversial.

The company, its programs, and its founder claim to help people in deep and personal ways – done not merely for profit, but for the student’s welfare. It is claimed, this srpings from a desire to have love and compassion and create a better world. Because the course material is confidential and zealously guarded, there is contradictory “data” about the  nature of the company and Raniere.

On top of that, several people have claimed there is a dishonest agenda and dangerous too – that Raniere and his followers are advancing.

Therefore I have developed this website to ferret out the truth.  All people who are interested are invited to participate.

Some posts have had a readership which seems in excess of the current membership of NXIVM.  These readers may be merely interested in the prurient elements, people who sense hypocrisy [if that what NXIVM offers] and reading about bizarre activities of rich, attractive, famous, and otherwise intelligent people.

The site is not meant to merely entertain. The frankreport is investigatory. It must present what I know is true, and ask questions everything else.

I must start again – and review previous posts. I will re-post those I think need clarification as new posts with explanations.

NXIVM may be a work of evil, based on lies. Then it should be exposed.

Raniere and his organization may be good- even saintly – a new model for the world – but grossly misunderstood. If that is true that should be explained.  In fact I was originally hired by him [paid by the Bronfman sisters] do that work.

If Raniere and his organization are a combination of good and evil, part truthful, part liar then we –  readers, contributors, myself – and, if desired, Raniere and his followers – should work to assess the truth versus fiction – expose or discard lies – find a way to make NXIVM honest or shut it down. After all Raniere claims to be able to lead people to truth. How could he ever hope to do that by lying?

To contribute, email me at frankparlato@gmail.com, call me at 716-990-5740 or text.

Or simply post on this site.

Thank you

  • I just read for the first time cover to cover Barbara Bouchey’s 54 page deposition for Precision Development vs the Plyams. http://www.timesunion.com/nxivm/item/Commodities-Trading-7833.php (link attached). Some takeaways which are ripe for discussion: Does NXIVM even make a profit? It does not seem to and appears to bleed money out of all its orifices. It appears from the deposition that NXIVM was allowing some of its students to take courses and then work off the “tuition”. From the Bouchey deposition and the Dones Bankruptcy case NXIVM owed its coaches ( the NX 9) coaching fees which NXIVM turned around and cried extortion. In her deposition, Bouchey comes right out and states more of Clare Bronfman’s $$ was used than Sara’s who seems to have made a quiet exit and hopefully taken her money with her to do more noble work.

    It seems like Clare is bankrolling the whole NXIVM village. The core nxians are living off the fat of her trust funds. Salzman’s home was also alledgedly, financed by a Bronfman loan of which there appears to be no formal “loan” documentation. Love, lust or like is obviously blind when a financial planner states ” There was no signed loan agreement because I was dealing with my boyfriend the most ethical man in the world” Raniere lost Bouchey’s (as well as some of her relatives), Salzman’s, Cafritz’s, Unterreiner’s, and Michael Suttons initial investments in his first venture into commodities. When the Bronfmans arrived he plowed thru even more. It is really quite astounding to read the actual deposition in Bouchey’s words as she was grilled rather than the cliff notes versions of what happened in blog posts and newspaper articles.

    PET PEEVE: Regarding the use of the words humanitarian and ethical, these words should not be used in describing oneself on your Facebook page, blog bio, twitter feed etc. That label should be bestowed upon you after you have done something selfless and great, like Zuckerberg, Gates and Buffett donating a chunk of their fortune to the Giving Pledge or leading a relief effort to Haiti or consistently volunteering in a soup kitchen, animal shelter, or some other cause over a period of time. The ESPIANS/NXIANS have done nothing to better humanity or demonstrate any new and original core values or belief systems that we as humans should embrace.

    NXIVM is also fascinating for the group dynamics at play which the public would not even be aware of except for their sue-happy leaders: You have a Large group awareness training (LGAT) organization or for lack of a better word: cult , polyamory among its members, two members of which are trustafarians to a liquor fortune and several others are B and C list actresses. And you also have the dynamics among the inner circle of a Sociopath-empath-apath triad(S) with Raniere, the Sociopath, the empaths would include Bouchey and Natalie, and the apaths are the minions/harem who are controlled by Raniere thanks to the brainwashing and gaslighting that goes on in the intensives and EM’s. Coupled with rumors of income tax evasion, money laundering, harboring of illegal aliens, unlawful imprisonment, pedophilia

  • Whatever. This guy is no “ethical” leader. Rick Ross has exposed him. The TU articles did so as well.

    His previous business all follow the same multi-level marketing (MLM) pattern, and NXIVM/ESP is just a rip off of the human potential movement that follows the same MLM model for its coaching structure and recruitment strategy. This guy just donned a persona to use people and get pussy. He can’t do business legally in the only model he knows, so he just does it through his front of maroons whose names are on the paperwork while controlling them from behind the scenes.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
