Seven Days wrote of Damon’s sale of Nectar’s: “Damon Brink left his mark. Moving forward, it will be interesting to see how the new management leaves theirs. And though we haven’t always seen eye to eye, I wish Damon nothing but the best in this next stage of his life.”
The next stage of his life was ESP. And whatever ability he had for success in Vermont, Damon saw it quickly evaporate in Clifton Park.
He had sold a famous club to come to Albany – presumably with money. A few years of ESP and its offshoots, like Jness and Society of Protectors, probably stripped him of all his savings. He probably owes a lot of money for the trainings.
Damon had to return to his teenage job of being a DJ for weddings.
From owning a top nightclub booking top acts and hiring DJs, he dropped to doing banquet hall weddings as a low-level DJ.
By February 2014, Damon became so mentally unsound that he said something that is akin really to saying the earth is flat. He said, ‘Keith Raniere built 1,000 millionaires in his life.”
Keith Raniere, in his whole life, has never built people. He has taken good people and made them poorer. And poorer. Like he did to poor Damon.
The claims are so ridiculous that it is hard to say they are even fraudulent. For who would be stupid enough to believe any of hem? There is not a shred of evidence that any of them are true and plenty of evidence that they’re all lies.
It may turn out to be fortunate for Damon Brink that he is non compos mentis. He can use that as a defense in any proceeding against him for his claims of superhuman financial talent of Keith Raniere.
Really, indeed, all Damon has to do to determine whether Keith is the wealth builder of thousands is to look at himself.
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 featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries, 'Seduced,' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Parlato has 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, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
