Update: Five Mexican media publish Francisco Rodriguez’s ‘The cult of Emiliano Salinas Occeli: threats, money and sex’!

Well known Mexican journalist Francisco Rodriguez is on to Keith Raniere and his confederate Emiliano Salinas. He writes of the vicious and destructive cult of Keith Raniere, only he is calling it [and rightly so] ‘the Cult of Emiliano Salinas Occeli.’

Frank Report posted earlier today that journalist Francisco Rodriguez published what I suspect will be an historic and landmark story that appeared in the El Heraldo de San Luis Potosi, one of the largest circulation newspapers in the San Luis Potosi metro area(More than one million people).

El heraldo San Luis Potposi was founded in 1942. It is a daily paper.

His story is entitled:

‘El Culto De Emiliano Salinas Occeli: Amenazas, Dinero Y Sexo’

Translated into English: ‘The cult of Emiliano Salinas Occeli: threats, money and sex’

Here is the link to the story

In addition, to the El Heraldo de San Luis Potosi, Mr. Rodriguez’s story also appears in:


Indice Politico

El Independiente de Hidalgo

Peninsular Digital


It would be great if any of the readers of Frank Report felt ambitious and cared to comment on any of websites. That might encourage further interest…

The original column ran 9/8/2017. I didn’t see any way to comment on the El Heraldo article and it was under “Columnistas”. more like an OP ED. I wonder what the comments were on the Facebook page? Hopefully some of the Mexican readers of the Frank Report can report back

Mexicans are good, kind. religious, family oriented and hard-working people (at least the ones I have met including many who work the fields and send home money to their families). NXIVM is those antithesis to those values of family and religion.

Obviously the Mexican Press isn’t scared off like the Albany Times Useless, etc. Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end.

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.
