It was marked by an unusually small attendance. And, according to sources, the prevailing mood, often unspoken, seemed to be: “Something is up.”
Overall, Vanguard was seen very little. Who knows if it may be the last Vanguard Week.
Clare Bronfman continues to maintain there were 270-290 people there, including 45-50 children. That number seems exaggerated based on reports from eyewitnesses.
I expect more reports now that people are away from the potentially prying computers of Clare Bronfman.
Posting of pictures earlier this week from the dining hall and group photos at Silver Bay show few people. The dining room pictures evidently perturbed some people since V-Week organizers appeared upset and arranged to forbid cameras in the dining area.
This extended to the staff of Silver Bay.
Yesterday, Vanguard was seen walking the grounds at Silver Bay in the afternoon with two women. He was up from his slumbers early.
Overall, this may have been the worst V-Week ever in terms of attendance.
Many more people are expected to leave the organization shortly
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.
