  • DOS is the brainchild of VanDouche, no ifs, ands or buts. Remember that video Frank posted from VanDouche Week 2016 where VanDouche said he was a “demon” and he would make you do things with all of your hands and do the hard thing? Well DOS is exactly that for women. Falling clearly under the definition of something “hard” to do, would be submitting to a hot branding iron (which is effectively a form of torture) for twenty to thirty minutes as it sears and permanently scars the skin, and the subsequent management of the wound and its pain for weeks after that.

    There’s no way Allison Mack came up with such a stupid idea out of her own volition. If it was “her” idea, it was only such by having it suggested and manipulated into her under some form of brainwashing. This is nothing but the “demonic” machinations of the king misogynist sociopath himself.

    Fucking loser.

    • Be sides anything is real or truth or a mix of that, The most of the part of this posts are bullshit. Is funny how a person take advantage from the professional journalist like the NY Times. And put a bunch trash to generate “information” and used the social media to promote it, Frank Paralato is so good journalist that I still have not seen any of the details of his posts in the original story, in the NY Times, of course the are some facts that are very clear even not in the NY Times, but is very easy to manipulate information like this. And the question remains why Paralato is so involve in this, is just for fame or something else (Do no tell me that he is a hero because that is just bullshit). Well Time will say what is truth and the end of all this, I hope so.

  • Frank Report readers are likely puzzled that there was no mention of Allison Mack in the NY Times article. The only women named as perpetrators of DOS are Dr. Danielle Roberts and Lauren Salzman.

    The narrative in Frank Report has been consistently that Allison Mack was the female founder of DOS, and that the brand “KR-AM” stands for Keith Raniere and Allison Mack.

    Given the quotes from former insiders Sarah Edmondson, Anthony Ames, Mark Vicente, and Soukaina Mehdaoui in the NY Times article, there was ample opportunity for reporter Barry Meier to learn from them if they thought Allison Mack was a key figure if not the female leader of DOS. And surely Meier read enough of Frank Report to know to ask the question.

    My conclusion is that Sarah and the others told Meier that they believe that Allison Mack is a victim of DOS rather than a perpetrator, and so should not be publicly shamed. And Meier (or his editors) agree that there is insufficient evidence to name Allison Mack as a central figure.

    Just as Nancy Salzman was intended to take the blame if ESP ran into legal trouble, Allison Mack was intended to take the blame for DOS, at least inside the Raniere-verse. “[Allison Mack] is expected to confess [at V-Week] that
    She is solely responsible for DOS and its practices.
    Mr. Raniere was unaware of DOS until it became public.
    Miss Mack and some women of DOS kept the practices secret from Mr. Raniere.
    Miss Mack and other members devised and created the group without consulting with Mr. Raniere.
    Mr. Raniere does not approve of DOS’ practices — and DOS has nothing to do with his teaching organizations, ESP, J’ness, or the Society of Protectors.
    Students can rest assured that Mr. Raniere would never expect them or their wives to be branded or provide material that could be used to blackmail them.
    Mr. Raniere does not condone branding or collecting material to coerce students’ silence.”

    If that was Raniere’s plan from the start, then Mr. Parlato’s sources would have been told that story, and parroted it to him. Ironically, painting Allison Mack as responsible got Mr. Parlato more attention, and seems to be leading to Raniere’s downfall.

    The above Frank Report post continued: ‘[Allison Mack’s] mistake has caused her great emotional torment and she will begin a significant “penance”. ‘

    Apparently being away from the Widsom of Vanguard is “penance,” because Allison’s Instagram shows that she has been happily visiting London and Paris recently, likely financed by the Bronfman’s. I suspect that she is being kept out of town because her mind is so far gone at this point that Raniere worries what she will say to the press or the authorities under questioning.

    • Well, it would be more convenient for the top of the cult foodchain if Allison took the fall, wouldn’t it? She’s entirely disposable, and was never very bright even before the brainwashing took hold. The ideal stooge.

      Allison was in San Diego during March and April rehearsing and performing in a stage play, so she may not have even been in Albany when the events outlined by the Times occurred either.

      In any case, if Lauren’s more of a driving force than has been suggested until now, it’s far more difficult for Nancy to claim she knew nothing of this at all. This brings the charges and the trail of proof (and it appears the Times was provided texts and Lauren on tape) right to Nancy’s doorstep. Nancy has a lot of questions to answer regarding exactly what she knew, when she knew it, and why she’s allowed business to continue as usual with ESP until today.

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.
