Stand up to the monster, Keith Raniere

He gets women to get other women.

DOS is the creation of Keith Raniere, aided and abetted by Allison Mack, Clare Bronfman, Rosa Laura Junco, Lauren Salzman, Monica Duran, Nicki Clyne, Melissa Rodriguez, Marianna Fernandez, Loretta Garza and others.

With the full support of Nancy Salzman.

There is a moral rot in and about everything and everyone who has been associated with Keith Raniere for any significant length of time.

Sometimes, it takes the form of fear – which leads them to run away from him and hide. Being afraid to say a word about his evil. Other times, it takes the form of cowardice – which leads them to allow others to be hurt and not stand up and tell the world who he is and what he’s done.

Sometimes, it seems to take the form of premature death via cancer, or suicide or a strange disappearance.

Mostly, it takes the form of losing one’s conscience and participating in crimes against people.

From helping bringing in teenage girls for Keith Raniere to have sex with, to tricking women into being branded on their pubic area, it is the world of Keith Raniere.

Toni Natalie, Rick RossJoe O’Hara, Barbara Bouchey, Susan Dones and Kristin Keeffe publicly came out and described the monster. They spoke publicly about Keith Raniere and illegal activities. He unleashed a fury on them that almost destroyed their lives.

At the time, there were few to stand up to him and no one to back them. Others left because of them. Reporters wrote stories about them. But most who left were thankful to be able to get out without suffering the fate that others suffered.

The cowardice of former followers of Keith Raniere in not standing up to him caused a lot of people to suffer.

Maybe no one would have been branded or blackmailed had everyone spoken up loudly.

Now Sarah Edmondson is standing up to him.

And, quite predictably, now he’s going after her alright.

Will the people who know he is a monster finally stand up and say so? Or will they stand by on the sidelines and watch himself do everything he can to destroy her life?

  • His concept of character is being used as a control mechanism. It’s not about your character, it’s about control and keeping you immobilized. Later in life you will reflect on this and be amazed that you ever entrusted so much authority to people who really hadn’t earned it, who lied along with some “skillful handling”. All the pressure and 2AM committee meetings and checkins keep you nice and busy and tired and soft and distracted.

    • Leave.

      “It time to go.” use it as a mantra. or sing it as a song as you pack your things (preferably accompanied with accordion) :

      “It’s time to go, it’s time to leave.
      Clifton Park is frack’n lame. (could be sung Laaaaaaammmmmmmeeee)

      Manhattan’s better, and Malibu too.
      I could be sitting by a pool, starting again.
      “what did I want in the first place anyways?”

      Ugh, to taste that vegetarian pizza again at Apropos.
      In fact the sign to Half Moon Bay, too see that just one more time…

      (dramatic pause and breath taken)

      It’s time to leave, it’s time to go.

      (improv the rest as you drive out of there….)

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.
