Q: How can Salzman be demoted? She owns ESP/NXIVM! A: Salzman “fading fast”

Keith Raniere believes the most ethical teachings are available for you!

Monte Blu, one of the few readers who outspokenly supports Keith Raniere, was evidently troubled by the post yesterday about Nancy Salzman having her salary suspended.

Monte Blu wrote:

How can Keith Raniere suspend Nancy Salzman’s salary when she owns the NXIVM/Executive Success Programs? Something sounds fishy. Either he really owns the company and she is a shill, or he is such a great teacher that she obeys him in everything, or he is a conman who is cheating her out of her salary, or the report is in error.
Where are her daughters Lauren and Michele Slazman and whose side are they on their mother or Keith’s?


An informed reader answered:

Keith Raniere demoted Nancy Salzman off the NXIVM Executive Board when Barbara Bouchey and eight other women left in 2009. Blaming their departure on Nancy, he then put Clare Bronfman in charge of everything and made Nancy report to her.

Nancy Salzman’s daughters, Lauren and Michelle Slazman, have been working against their mother for 20 years. Who are you kidding? They don’t give a shit about her. Nancy has all the liability for NXIVM and ESP and no power or control. Demoting her further to a point where she has to beg for money to pay her bills is par for the course.

There is nothing fishy in this report. No one in Keith’s inner circle ever has money and power for long except Clare Bronfman. It’s always about demonization and demotion for all his women. Look at Allison Mack? She’ll be close to bankruptcy soon I’m sure, and no career to fall back on unless she writes a book about her life with Keith.

Keith Raniere in 2009 was shocked that Barbara Bouchey and eight other women left NXIVM. The women claimed that they were troubled by Mr. Raniere’s hypocrisy including his having sex with many of his students. Mr. Raniere revealed that it was not his, but Nancy Salzman’s fault.  He then demoted her to figurehead status and promoted Clare Bronfman to be her ruler.

Nancy Salzman is at fault for all of the problems of NXIVM, Keith Raniere has said.

Reader 2 also took time to answer:

If there is anything that the women should know by now, it’s that Keith DOES NOT care about any of them. NONE of them. And the closer you get to him, it’s just a matter of time until he turns on you and you turn on him. Hopefully, Nancy starts cutting deals and squawking before the most ethical man in the world starts having more people killed. I’m cool with his end game being Fiji. I just don’t see him going away so easily. Maybe a pissed off Mexican father will do everyone a favor.


NOTE: The Frank Report does not condone violence. While it is clear that Mr. Raniere himself appears to condone violence and that the kind of activities he has been doing are such that some fathers or husbands might wish to commit acts of violence against him, Frank Report urges any one reading this to refrain from such activities or promoting them for then they approach the level of destructiveness that Mr. Raniere himself has achieved.

Nancy Salzman was blamed for the upheaval at ESP in 2009. The 2017 upheaval may also be blamed on her.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

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.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
