EXECUTIVE SUCCESS PROGRAMS’ OFFICIAL STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO NY TIMES (VÉASE ABAJO PARA LA TRADUCCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL)

Executive Success Programs (ESP) has made an official statement today rebutting the New York Times article.  The following appears on the ESP web site.

Official Statement

Recently a media outlet unfoundedly, and incorrectly, linked NXIVM corporation, its founder and its related companies, with a social group. The allegations relayed in the story are built upon sources, some of which are under criminal investigation or already indicted, who act as a coordinated group. This story might be a criminal product of criminal minds who, in the end, are also hurting the victims of the story.

Unfortunately, this media outlet fell prey to these coordinated, criminal efforts. NXIVM was not able to participate in this story because it painfully held true to the due process of our free world justice system.

We will explore any and all legal remedies to correct these lies.

NXIVM is a professional business providing educational tools, coaching and trainings to corporations and people from all walks of life. For nearly 20 years, the company has provided these tools to over 16,000 individuals in over 30 countries. NXIVM works with some of the world’s leading companies, CEOs, and world leaders, as well as many others, with great success. Anonymous surveys suggest the satisfaction rate of NXIVM’s clients is over 95%, and an extensive psychological study conducted over the past 10 years demonstrates extraordinary psychological benefits and results.

NXIVM spearheaded a three-time Emmy nominated peace ceremony in the Central American and Caribbean games, which also won ten Telly Awards. NXIVM has documented an initial case study of ten individuals suffering from Tourette’s syndrome, a neurological disease known to be incurable, who were able to radically reduce, and in some cases completely eradicate, their symptoms.

In the area of child development, NXIVM has achieved a scientific innovation with hundreds of children experiencing a multicultural upbringing, many who speak between 7 and 13 distinct languages fluently. With college students, NXIVM education significantly raised moral decision capacity and had an increase in intelligence performance compared to a placebo. Also, throughout the years NXIVM has upheld the judicial system and supported victims of natural disasters, kidnapping and personal loss.

NXIVM firmly believes in human empowerment, excellence, freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

NXIVM firmly opposes and condemns violence, victimhood, dishonor and abuse. And NXIVM firmly opposes any criminal products from criminal minds.

Declaración oficial de los programas de éxito Ejecutivo en respuesta a NY Times

Executive Success Programs (ESP) ha hecho una declaración oficial hoy refutando el artículo del New York Times.  El siguiente aparece en el sitio web ESP.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Recientemente un medio de comunicación ligó incorrectamente y sin fundamento a NXIVM Corporation, y empresas relacionadas, a un grupo social. Los alegatos plasmados en la historia se basan en fuentes, algunas de las cuales se encuentran bajo investigación criminal, o incluso ya indiciados, y que actúan como un grupo coordinado. Esta historia podría ser un producto criminal de mentes criminales, que al final lastiman incluso a las víctimas de la historia.

Desafortunadamente este medio fue presa de estos esfuerzos criminales coordinados. NXIVM no pudo participar en la historia pues decidió, con dolor, apegarse al proceso legal de nuestro sistema de justicia internacional.

Exploraremos todos y cada uno de los remedios legales para corregir estas mentiras.

NXIVM es una empresa profesional que provee herramientas educacionales, coaching, y entrenamientos a individuos, corporaciones, y personas de toda índole. Durante casi veinte años, la compañía ha ofrecido estas herramientas a más de 16,000 personas de más de treinta países. NXIVM trabaja con algunas de las empresas líderes a nivel mundial, directores, y líderes mundiales, entre otros, con gran éxito. Encuestas anónimas sugieren que la tasa de satisfacción de los clientes de NXIVM rebasa el 95%, y un extenso estudio psicológico realizado en los últimos diez años demuestra beneficios psicológicos y resultados extraordinarios.

NXIVM lideró una ceremonia de paz en los Juegos Centroamericanos y del Caribe que se hizo acreedora a tres nominaciones al premio Emmy, y ganadora de diez premios Telly. NXIVM ha documentado un estudio inicial de diez personas padeciendo Síndrome de Tourette, una enfermedad neurológica considerada incurable, quienes han logrado reducir radicalmente sus síntomas, y en algunos casos erradicarlos completamente.

En el área del desarrollo infantil, NXIVM ha logrado una innovación científica con cientos de niños gozando de una educación multicultural, varios de los cuales hablan entre siete y trece diferentes idiomas de forma fluida. Con estudiantes universitarios, NXIVM ha elevado de forma significativa su capacidad de decisión moral, y logrado un incremento en el desempeño inteligente comparado con un placebo. Así mismo, a través de los años, NXIVM ha honrado el sistema de justicia, y apoyado víctimas de desastres naturales, secuestros, y tragedias personales.

NXIVM cree firmemente en el empoderamiento humano, la excelencia, y la libertad de expresión.

NXIVM se opone y condena firmemente la violencia, la victimización, el deshonor, y el abuso. Y NXIVM se opone firmemente a cualquier producto criminal de mentes criminales.

20 thoughts on “EXECUTIVE SUCCESS PROGRAMS’ OFFICIAL STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO NY TIMES (VÉASE ABAJO PARA LA TRADUCCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL)

  1. “Recently a media outlet…”

    Translation: The New York Times put a story on its front page

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/17/nyregion/nxivm-women-branded-albany.html

    “…unfoundedly, and incorrectly, linked NXIVM corporation, its founder and its related companies, with a social group.”

    Translation: The project of blackmail, slavery, and genital branding known as DOS DOS (Dominant Over Submissive ? Daughters of Satan?) is just a “sorority” that has nothing to do with Keith Raniere, Executive Success Programs (ESP), Society of Protectors (SOP mens’ group), or JNESS (womens’ group).

    “The allegations relayed in the story are built upon sources, some of which are under criminal investigation or already indicted, who act as a coordinated group. This story might be a criminal product of criminal minds…”

    Translation: Like Scientology, we spend millions on lawyers to attack our critics. One of our favorite strategies is to make false and perjurious criminal charges against our critics. Since we don’t actually have a case, but do have a large budget, we can stretch out the criminal proceedings forever. So we can say “under criminal investigation or already indicted” for years at a time. In the end, the original charges will be dismissed, but sometimes we dig up something else that does stick.

    “… who, in the end, are also hurting the victims of the story.”

    Question: Who are the victims of the story? The inside witnesses who chose to come forward (Sarah Edmondson, Anthony Ames, Mark Vicente, Bonnie Piesse, Jennifer Kobelt, Soukaina Mehdaoui) are victims of Raniere and his cohort, not victims of the story.

    “Unfortunately, this media outlet fell prey to these coordinated, criminal efforts. NXIVM was not able to participate in this story because it painfully held true to the due process of our free world justice system.”

    Comment: It is true that negative factual information about Keith Raniere, Lauren Salzman, Dr. Danielle Roberts, and Dr. Brandon Porter is revealed in the story. However, the follow-up story https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/19/nyregion/complaints-by-ex-nxivm-members.html makes clear that they were given ample opportunity to respond to the allegations:

    “During a three-month period, officials of Nxivm did not respond to repeated requests by The Times for interviews and responses. Neither Dr. Porter nor Dr. Roberts responded to repeated inquiries.”

    “We will explore any and all legal remedies to correct these lies.”

    Translation: We will send our army of lawyers after the New York Times.

    Comment: The New York Times has genuine journalistic ethics (unlike the fake situational-ethics of ESP), and standards of sourcing and fact-checking that have stood up for over a century. They have been threatened before, even by Presidents, and stood their ground. They have the legal doctrine that truth is the ultimate defense against libel, and the protection of the First Amendment, on their side. Even the Bronfman girls don’t have enough money to win this one.

    “NXIVM is a professional business providing educational tools, coaching and trainings to corporations and people from all walks of life. For nearly 20 years, the company has provided these tools to over 16,000 individuals in over 30 countries. NXIVM works with some of the world’s leading companies, CEOs, and world leaders, as well as many others, with great success.”

    Translation: We are yet another training company. You could get similar results for much less money by attending Landmark Education seminars, Tony Robbins seminars, or buying his or any number of other self-help books.

    “Anonymous surveys suggest the satisfaction rate of NXIVM’s clients is over 95%…”

    Translation: Since we plagiarized the Landmark (descendent of Werner Erhard’s “est” of the 1970s) system of tearing down the egos of our students for the first few days of the $8000, 5-day “intensive,” then building them back up for the last day, only 5% of the people who take our training are willing to admit to themselves that it was a rip-off, while in the euphoria of the final day.

    “…and an extensive psychological study conducted over the past 10 years demonstrates extraordinary psychological benefits and results.”

    Cool story, bro. What were the benefits and results? Where was it published? Otherwise you got nothing.

    “NXIVM spearheaded a three-time Emmy nominated peace ceremony in the Central American and Caribbean games, which also won ten Telly Awards.”

    Translation: Anima Inc. is a small Mexican firm that produces opening-ceremony and half-time events. They produced the opening ceremony of the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games, which was nominated for daytime Emmy awards for directing, lighting, and sound mixing. They did not win an Emmy. The Telly Awards are for commercials, promotional videos, and special events. For the 2014 Games, Anima won 3 Silvers (apparently there is no Gold) and 7 Bronze.

    The Anima web site lists Keith Raniere as “conceptual founder,” although there is no indication that he participates in any way with their productions. However it is very plausible that dancer and artistic director Alejandra González Anaya has been through training at the Mexico City ESP center. Being slender with long dark hair, she would be just the type to receive “special training” from Raniere…..

    “NXIVM has documented an initial case study of ten individuals suffering from Tourette’s syndrome, a neurological disease known to be incurable, who were able to radically reduce, and in some cases completely eradicate, their symptoms.”

    Comment: About half of Tourette’s Syndrome patients undergo spontaneous remission in early adulthood. You can hear Keith Raniere himself say this about 25 seconds into this video:

    https://www.keithraniereconversations.com/interpreting-tourettes-syndrome-studys-results/

    At 2:20 into the video, Raniere makes statements implying the study was not a proper controlled and randomized trial, but rather they selected patients that they thought would respond to their treatment. The study has never been published, probably for that reason.

    “In the area of child development, NXIVM has achieved a scientific innovation with hundreds of children experiencing a multicultural upbringing, many who speak between 7 and 13 distinct languages fluently.”

    Translation: Rainbow Cultural Garden is an unlicensed daycare program where parents are charged $10,000 per month to have (frequently illegal immigrant) caregivers, a different one each day, speak only their native language to the child. Bonding with the parents is discouraged. There is zero research that supports the notion that this very early exposure to many languages is successful in producing multilingual children, and much evidence that it impedes development of skills in the locally dominant language.

    “With college students, NXIVM education significantly raised moral decision capacity and had an increase in intelligence performance compared to a placebo.”

    Cool story, bro. How was “moral decision capacity” defined and measured, and what was the increase? How much was the intelligence increased? If the placebo was “not going to college at all,” then I’m not very impressed. Where was it published? Otherwise you got nothing.

    “Also, throughout the years NXIVM has upheld the judicial system”

    Translation: We have paid private investigators to find evidence, often using illegal methods, and placed our employees, e.g. Kristin Keeffe before she left the cult, as free interns in prosecutors’ offices, to assist in criminal prosecutions of our enemies.

    “…and supported victims of natural disasters, kidnapping and personal loss.”

    Translation: Many cults, e.g. Transcendental Meditation, send members to sites of natural disasters, since recruiting is easier when people are at a psychological low point.

    “NXIVM firmly believes in human empowerment, excellence, freedom of speech and freedom of expression.”

    And everyone gets a pony.

    “NXIVM firmly opposes and condemns violence, victimhood, dishonor and abuse.”

    And we oppose stuff that is bad. Because it is bad.

    “And NXIVM firmly opposes any criminal products from criminal minds.”

    Translation: Projection, writ large….

  2. So, given ESP’s “Official Response”, it seems inevitable that we’ll see the following happen within the next few days:
    – Massive arrests of all those individuals whose criminal minds have been involved in developing criminal products that are harmful to the ESP and its leaders; and
    – A massive multi-billion dollar lawsuit against The New York Times and the hundreds of other media outlets that picked up on yesterday’s story.

    If neither of those things happen, then Raniere is nothing more than a chicken-shit coward who is unwilling to defend his honor and that of that his organization. The ball’s in your court, Vanguard. Time to put up – or slink away.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________

    Así que, dada la “respuesta oficial” de ESP, parece inevitable que veamos los siguientes acontecimientos en los próximos días:
    – Detenciones masivas de todos aquellos individuos cuyas mentes criminales han estado involucradas en el desarrollo de productos criminales que son dañinos para el ESP y sus lideres; y
    – Una demanda masiva de miles de millones de dólares contra el New York Times y los cientos de otros medios de comunicación que recogieron en la historia de ayer.

    Si ninguna de esas cosas sucede, entonces Raniere no es más que un cobarde de de gallina que no quiere defender su honor y el de su organización. La pelota está en tu cancha, Vanguard. Tiempo para poner-o escabullirse de distancia.

  3. Talk about derp. The story is a product of some of those who are under criminal investigation precisely because, following their modus operandi, NXIVM FILED FALSE CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS AGAINST THEM due to the negative exposure that they had brought or were going to bring to it. Pray tell, how are these so-called criminal minds hurting the victims of the story if some of the victims are those who brought the story to light, you fucking bunch of morons? Effectively, it’s a poisoning of the well logical fallacy that they took part in creating.

    The rest of this impotent and vague response has nothing to do with the allegations. It is just a regurgitation the pretentious claims of what they have done.

  4. “Criminal products of a criminal mind.” Is that from a HIGHER LEVEL teaching of “projection” Keith? Or are you referring to The Knife as it dismembers the eyes of truth from the face of reality? Maybe it’s your way of saying how mean people are when they are trying to hold you accountable to your sick actions and lies. Too many people have seen and are using their Freedom of Speech to share what’s really been going on behind the curtain. No wizard here. Just Keith. How long have you been planning on taking down your own company to create a big enough distraction for your escape and leaving your ghouls to take responsibility for the destructive mess? All of your discourses on suppressives were obvious clues of your own projection. You knew know no one would suspect you were the great Poohbah. Sad but I guess it was one thing you were successful at.
    No love lost here because there never was a heart. #metoo

  5. Well that rebuttal feels a lot like fake news to me. And a whole lot of subterfuge.

    Not certain anyone was questioning Emmy winning shows they were perhaps involved with spearheading. Just sayin’

  6. No one does anything in NXVille without daddy’s permission. No one comes up with an original idea. It’s always daddy’s. For NXIVM to say they we’re not a part of this half baked idea need to check for their pants on fire.

    • Can someone please translate NXIVM to English. This make no sense no matter how many times I read it. I was particularly amused by their effectiveness being equal to that of a placebo. Wow. How did NXIVM measure the moral decision capacity? I could keep going but it is totally meaningless.

      • Increase in intelligence performance
        Not equal
        Compared to a placebo
        A placebo if often nothing more than a sugar pill or false information.
        For any of the NXIVM studies to be credible they would need to be tested and verified by a 3rd party, good luck.

  7. It is noteworthy that the NY Times story did not include a statement that NXIVM or Raniere was contacted and declined to comment.

    It is almost inconceivable that the NYT did not try to get a comment from Raniere or NXIVM before running the story. The story is much more newsworthy, as well as more ethical (in the normal, non-ESPian sense) with a response included. It is even more inconceivable that the NYT would exclude a response from the story, if they received one.

    Perhaps they did receive a response, but it was “we prefer to respond on our own website, on our own schedule.”

    To me, that is the only scenario that would lead the NYT to not say “NXIVM was contacted but refused to comment.”

    • I meant that the only reason NYT would NOT say Raniere was contacted and didn’t comment was if Raniere said he would comment elsewhere.

      • Blerg.

        The only reason NYT would NOT say that Raniere declined to comment would be if he said he preferred to comment elsewhere.

  8. OMGGGG, this is SO FUNNY. UMMMM, they know they sound like Scientology, right? RIGHT?

    I’m laughing because this is so full of fraudulent claims.

    WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
