Raniere group missing from New Knife News: Nicki Clyne, Veronica Jaspeado, John Fox and others gone?

no who we are
Note: ‘Who we are” on the Knife of Aristotle site. It came down after an expose in Paste Magazine.

The new masthead for The Knife (formerly The Knife of Aristotle) doesn’t include Nicki Clyne.

But by utilizing the Wayback Machine to access the now defunct Knife of Aristotle site, Frank Report has confirmed that Miss Clyne was, in fact, listed as the “Executive Producer” for the old blog: https://web.archive.org/web/20160910120925/https://www.ethicalmedia.org/our-analysts

There are others missing.

Is Allison Mack suffering psychosis? She posted a bizarre set of tweets, tweeting to no one and responding to herself. Check the image here: http://oi68.tinypic.com/a2emtf.jpg

Who the fuck cares about Joe O’Hara? He was barely brought up except in the comment sections which triggered an actual post copied from the former that was in defense of him. The only people who keep bringing him up is NXIVM shills like you in a way that is reminiscent of reverse psychology, e.g., in order to invoke guilt by association to tarnish all the other claims of this blog concerning NXIVM, DOS, and the fraud that is Keith Raniere. I was even called Joe O’Hara by some of you and I have absolutely no connection to him whatsoever. Also, who would know if there is a lawsuit again the author of this blog except those who are close to the situation on the other side? This is a typical NXIVM/Raniere tactic usurped from Scientology, another obvious cult. To shut other people up with billionaire money so he can live his fake, slimy lifestyle.

Why have you changed the format of this site? No “most read stories” on the sidebar etc. The recent stories about Joseph O’Hara are inaccurate in the extreme. That is concerning. Do you fact check what you write? Or google to check? Any googler can see the history of Joe O’Hara’s lawsuits and criminal activity including the MASSIVE loss he suffered by a Federal District Court decision against him in favor of the Bronfman’s. And his personal bankruptcy decision in where he committed fraud while trying to wash out his Bronfman debt he owed. How can this blog write so erroneously about that? If you google Bronfman v O’Hara the truth is in the first few hits. It’s worrisome because anyone in NXIVM might paint your case with the Joe O’Hara brush because you are so grossly inaccurately portraying what happened with the Joe O’Hara’s cases. It makes it look like this blog will print anything anyone, including a massive con artist like O’Hara. Are you writing with any regard for the truth? It’s hard to lie about federal court decisions, so what gives?

Don’t you know that Keith Raniere has been using Joe O’Hara as the fall guy for a decade? That has been Raniere’s biggest excuse and justified about all the negative NXIVM press? O’Hara is a convicted criminal and has a $3.2 million judgement against him declared by a Federal District Court Judge in favor of the Bronfman’s. Because of the massive criminal and civil record against O’Hara (that is accurate and justified) the single most powerful weapon in Raneire’s arsenal is to claim “they are working with O’Hara”. To discredit anything any NXIVM adversaries say.

It is so sad to see this site jump on the O’Hara bandwagon without any fact checking. It totally discredits your credibility.

Is there anything new about DOS? I think that is why many people are reading this site. Some recent posts are kinda old news.

Hmmm…Wonder why “the world’s smartest man” hasn’t just changed his own name to get a fresh start? I guess changing all those record books is just too big a task for him to take on.

Maybe we can help him out by suggesting some options for him to consider. Her’s mine: Sy Kopath

A check of the Wayback Machine also will find names missing from the Frank Report.
Recently I looked at the FR re-post of the Coaches List and felt some Vancouver names were now missing that I had seen before in the FR re-post…so I looked at the Original list and it included O Cheng, S Edmonson and K Kreuk that the Re-post did not.
How were these names (and others?) deleted?



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.
