NY Times leads to more stories about Raniere and Bronfman – and, in Mexico, Salinas (VÉASE ABAJO PARA LA TRADUCCIÓN EN ESPAÑOL)

Clare Bronfman and Sara Bronfman hired me as a publicist in 2007 to get the truth out about Keith Raniere.

After 10 long years, the last six in a brutal fight with all three of them, I was finally able to get the truth out about Keith and his two financiers, Clare and Sara.

The New York Times has published Inside a Secretive Group Where Women Are Branded.

Credit goes to Catherine Oxenberg, Sarah Edmondson, Mark Vicente, Bonnie Piesse, Jennifer Kobelt, Anthony Ames, Soukaina Mehdaoui and others who put themselves at risk and retaliation by speaking on the record to The New York Times.

Up until today, there was no other public source for the branding and blackmail scheme of Keith Raniere and his women’s group called Dominant Over Submissive (DOS), other than the Frank Report.

I am pleased that The New York Times took the trouble to vet and publish the story of the inhuman practices of Keith Raniere. I predict there will be many more stories to follow, both in the Times and elsewhere.


As of 2;00 AM today, it is the number one trending story on The New York Times website. It is expected to appear on the front page of the print edition in a few hours.

[Redacted] and Esther Chiappone have been telling people that DOS branding was a fiction created by the Frank Report. Presumably, they will now be telling people that DOS branding is a fiction created by The New York Times.

Other news outlets have already started publishing the story.

The Albany Times Union has the New York Times article on their online edition with links to a number of the Times Union’s older stories on Keith Raniere.  The Albany Times Union will very likely be doing their own investigative story on Keith Raniere in coming days.

The Jewish publication Forward.com reported on the Times story with the emphasis on Clare and Sara Bronfman. Bronfman Sisters named as part of shadowy group that brands women

At least two Mexican publications has published the story and put the emphasis on Emiliano Salinas.

Sinembargo.mx published [English translation of title] Sect called “NXIVM” marks women with hot irons: NYT; in Mexico, Salinas’s son is a member 

Proceso.com.mx published this story about Emiliano; The NYT reveals mistreatment of women in the sect that inspired the son of Carlos Salinas

You have to admit, branding is better than fear – especially if it wipes out the apathy that has allowed Keith Raniere to avoid prosecution for decades of continuous criminality.

The Knife Media rates the New York Times at 36 percent integrity. I am looking forward to the Knife’s analysis of Inside a Secretive Group Where Women Are Branded

It is interesting that Allison Mack – whose initials appear on the brand next to those of Keith Raniere – was not mentioned in The New York Times story. Lauren Salzman, on the other hand, was mentioned repeatedly.

In Clifton Park, Keith Raniere is nowhere to be seen. He’s no fool. He split town before The New York Times story came out. Based on the evidence that has come to light thus far, it looks like Lauren Salzman, Dr. Danielle Roberts D.O. and Dr. Brandon Porter M.D. are set to take the fall for Keith.

Allison Mack is said to be in Paris. Perhaps Keith is with her.

According to one source, an eight day Intensive is supposed to start today. I wonder how many people will attend?

Nancy Salzman reportedly told ESPians that she will rely on Raniere’s ‘tech’ to heal her cancer. She is not planning to utilize any medical treatment.

Now is the time for anyone who has been involved in NXIVM to hire an attorney – and go to law enforcement to cut a deal. Given what’s come out so far in The New York Times story – and what will eventually come out in future stories in other major media outlets – there is a high probability that one or more criminal investigations will be undertaken.    Even people that have been paid off to look the other way have limits.

Keith Raniere is smart. He put everything in others’ names to protect himself.

That’s why the most people to face criminal charges are (These are not in any particular order – and there are certainly others who could be charged for criminal acts of their own and/or for aiding and abetting one or more of the people listed) :

  • Loreta Garza
  • Kathy Russell
  • Karen Unterreiner
  • Rosa Laura Junco
  • Steve Ose
  • Jennie Ose
  • Ben Meyers
  • Michelle Salzman
  • Siobhan Hotaling
  • India Oxenberg
  • Evan Zimmerman
  • the Elliot brothers
  • Dr. Porter
  • Dr. Roberts
  • Alex Betancourt
  • Emiliano Salinas
  • Nicki Clyne
  • Esther Chiappone
  • Jim Del Negro
  • Mariana Fernandez
  • Sahajo Haertel
  • Clare Bronfman
  • Sara Bronfman
  • Camilla Fernandez
  • Damon Brink
  • Lucas Roberts
  • Amanda Canning
  • Lauren Salzman
  • Nancy Salzman 

Given how well he’s covered his tracks – and lined up so many people in front of him – and given his ongoing access to the Bronfman sisters’ virtually unlimited funds to pay for attorneys – it’s still possible that Keith Raniere will not be charged. Nothing is in his name.

I am available to assist anyone to escape. I have already helped a number of women escape from Mr. Raniere already.

As you can see, the Frank Report is still in operation. I am still free to report the doings of the Bronfman-Raniere organization.

Here are some of the Albany Times Union links;

  • Part 4: In Raniere’s shadows
    Tomorrow we will have more to report on the potential crimes of Keith Raniere and Clare Bronfman.

    I wonder if Bronfman-Raniere’s new Albany attorney, Paul DerOhannesian, is ready for his new clients.  Hope he got a VERY LARGE retainer ’cause it looks like he’s going to be pretty busy.


    Keith Raniere likes to be called by his self-given title Vanguard. If he ends up in prison, he’ll probably get a new nickname.

    NY Times lleva a más historias sobre Raniere y Bronfman-y, en México, Salinas

    Clare Bronfman y Sara Bronfman me contrataron como publicista en 2007 para sacar la verdad sobre Keith Raniere.

    Después de 10 largos años, los últimos seis en una pelea brutal con los tres de ellos, finalmente pude sacar la verdad sobre Keith y sus dos financistas, Clare y Sara.

    El New York Times ha publicado dentro de un grupo secreto donde las mujeres son marcadas.

    El crédito va a Catherine Oxenberg, Sarah edmondon, Mark Vicente, Bonnie Piesse, Jennifer Kobelt, Anthony Ames, Soukaina Mehdaoui y otros que se pusieron en riesgo y represalia al hablar en el expediente al New York Times.

    Hasta hoy, no había otra fuente pública para el esquema de branding y chantaje de Keith Raniere y su grupo de mujeres llamado dominante sobre sumiso (dos), aparte del informe Franco.

    Me complace que el New York Times se haya tomado la molestia de investigar y publicar la historia de las prácticas inhumanas de Keith Raniere. Predigo que habrá muchas más historias a seguir, tanto en los tiempos y en otros lugares.

    A partir de la 2; 00 AM hoy, es la historia número uno de tendencias en el sitio web de New York Times. Se espera que aparezca en la portada de la edición impresa en pocas horas.

    [Redacted] y Esther Chiappone han estado diciendo a la gente que dos branding fue una ficción creada por el informe Frank. Presumiblemente, ahora les dirán a la gente que la marca dos es una ficción creada por el New York Times.

    Otros medios de noticias ya han empezado a publicar la historia.

    El Albany Times Union tiene el nuevo York Times artículo en su edición en línea con enlaces a un número de los tiempos de la Unión de historias más antiguas sobre Keith Raniere.  El Albany Times Union muy probablemente estará haciendo su propia historia de investigación sobre Keith Raniere en los próximos días.

    La publicación judía forward.com divulgó sobre la historia de los tiempos con el énfasis encendido Clare y Sara Bronfman. Bronfman hermanas nombradas como parte del grupo sombrío que marca las mujeres

    Al menos dos publicaciones mexicanas han publicado la historia y han puesto énfasis en Emiliano Salinas.

    Sinembargo.mx publicó [traducción inglesa del título] la secta llamada “NXIVM ” marca a mujeres con los hierros calientes: NYT; en México, el hijo de Salinas es miembro.

    Proceso.com.mx publicó esta historia sobre Emiliano; El NYT revela maltrato de mujeres en la secta que inspiró al hijo de Carlos Salinas
    Tienes que admitir que la marca es mejor que el miedo, especialmente si elimina la apatía que ha permitido a Keith Raniere evitar el enjuiciamiento por décadas de criminalidad continua.


    Fictionews: https://fictionews.com/Inside-a-secretive-Group-Where-Women-Are-Branded

    Los medios del cuchillo clasifican el New York Times en la integridad del 36 por ciento. Estoy deseando el análisis del cuchillo dentro de un grupo secreto donde las mujeres son marcadas

    Es interesante que Allison Mack-cuyas iniciales aparecen en la marca al lado de las de Keith Raniere-no se mencionó en la historia del New York Times. Lauren Salzman, por otro lado, fue mencionada repetidamente.

    En Clifton Park, Keith Raniere no está en ninguna parte para ser visto. No es tonto. Se fue de la ciudad antes de la historia del New York Times. Basándose en la evidencia que ha salido a la luz hasta el momento, parece que Lauren Salzman, el Dr. Danielle Roberts D.O. y el Dr. Brandon Porter M.D. están establecidos para tomar la caída de Keith.

    Se dice que Allison Mack está en París. Tal vez Keith esté con ella.

    Según una fuente, se supone que un intensivo de ocho días comienza hoy. Me pregunto ¿cuántas personas asistirán?

    Según informes, Nancy Salzman le dijo a ESPians que confiaría en la ‘ tecnología ‘ de Raniere para curar su cáncer. Ella no está planeando utilizar ningún tratamiento médico.

    Ahora es el momento para cualquier persona que ha estado involucrado en NXIVM para contratar a un abogado-e ir a la aplicación de la ley para cortar un acuerdo. Dado lo que ha salido hasta ahora en la historia del New York Times-y lo que eventualmente saldrá en futuras historias en otros medios de comunicación importantes-hay una alta probabilidad de que se emprenda una o más investigaciones criminales.    Incluso las personas que han sido pagadas para mirar hacia otro lado tienen límites.

    Keith Raniere es inteligente. Puso todo en los nombres de los demás para protegerse.

    Es por eso que la mayoría de las personas que enfrentan cargos criminales son (estos no están en ningún orden en particular-y ciertamente hay otros que podrían ser acusados por actos delictivos propios y/o por ayudar e instigar a una o más de las personas enumeradas):

       – Loreta Garza
       – Kathy Russell
       – Karen Unterreiner
       – Rosa Laura Junco
       – Steve Ose
       – Jennie Ose
       – Ben Meyers
       – Michelle Salzman
       – Siobhan Hotaling
       – India Oxenberg
       – Evan Zimmerman
       – los hermanos Elliot
       – El Dr. Porter
       – El Dr. Roberts

       – Alex Betancourt
       – Emiliano Salinas
       – Nicki Clyne
       – Esther Chiappone
       – Jim del negro
       – Mariana Fernández
       – Sahajo Haertel
       – Clare Bronfman
       – Sara Bronfman
       – Camilla Fernandez
       – Damon Brink
       – Lucas Roberts
       – Amanda Canning
       – Lauren Salzman
       – Nancy Salzman

    Teniendo en cuenta lo bien que ha cubierto sus huellas-y alineado con tantas personas delante de él-y dado su acceso continuo a los fondos prácticamente ilimitados de las hermanas Bronfman para pagar por los abogados-todavía es posible que Keith Raniere no será acusado. No hay nada en su nombre.

    Estoy disponible para ayudar a cualquier persona a escapar. Ya he ayudado a varias mujeres a escapar del Sr. Raniere ya.

    Como puede ver, el informe Frank sigue en funcionamiento. Todavía soy libre de reportar las realizaciones de la organización Bronfman-Raniere.

    Mañana tendremos más que informar sobre los posibles crímenes de Keith Raniere y Clare Bronfman.

    Me pregunto si el nuevo abogado de Albany de Bronfman-Raniere, Paul DerOhannesian, está listo para sus nuevos clientes.  Espero que tenga un retenedor muy grande porque parece que va a estar muy ocupado.


    A Keith Raniere le gusta ser llamado por su propio título de vanguardia. Si termina en prisión, probablemente consiga un nuevo apodo.

Producer, Nicki Cylne -The Knife Media ... She is gong to have to do a lot of spinning on this story
Producer, Nicki Cylne -The Knife Media ... She is gong to have to do a lot of spinning on this story
6 years ago


Nicki Clyne is best known for her role as “Crewman Specialist Cally” on the hit sci-fi series, Battlestar Galactica, as well as being featured on a number of television shows, movies, and now, as the lead of the upcoming sci-fi web-series Personal Space.

Her love of performing started at a young age, with backyard dance performances and impromptu comedy acts, but it wasn’t until she starred in the lead role of “Annie” in her high school play that she considered it a legitimate career option. She found an agent soon after and started auditioning in Vancouver’s burgeoning film scene, landing roles in TV shows like Dark Angel, Dead Like Me and The Dead Zone.

Her affinity for comedy was affirmed when she starred in Vh1’s 80s parody, Totally Awesome, written and directed by Neal Brennan, and also starring Tracy Morgan, Chris Kattan, Mikey Day and Dominique Swain.

Nicki continues to involve herself in film and television projects, as well as voiceover work; she voiced the character of “Soledad” in the illustrated film, Godkiller, and narrated a chapter of the audiobook for Max Brooks’ acclaimed World War Z. She enjoyed her time as the host of the SyFy web-series BlastrTV, where she ventured deep into the sci-fi and fantasy universe to comment on current and controversial topics.

In addition to acting, Nicki devotes much of her time to projects that seek to inspire critical thought and further ethics in the world. Through acting, she has found a way to more deeply understand the human condition and continues this pursuit by taking and teaching courses in personal growth and human performance. She also works with a new media company that analyzes news using a set of consistent, ethical standards. When she’s not in front of a camera or behind a computer, she loves connecting with people over big questions like why we’re here, what it means to be human, and how we know we’re not all cylons.

Pam Cafritz died in November 2016.

Lauren Salzman pitched to Sarah Edmondson about DOS in January 2017.

Sarah did an initiation ceremony in Lauren’s house in March 2017, believing she would get a small tatoo, and was instead forcibly branded in a different house the same night.

Sarah began to question her participation in Raniere’s world in May 2017.

Catherine Oxenberg asked her daughter India to come home from Clifton Park to California in late May 2017.

Sarah’s husband, Anthony Ames, accused Lauren Salzman of criminal acts a few days before June 5, 2017.

Frank Report breaks the story of blackmail, slavery, and genital branding on June 5, 2017.

Within days, encrypted messages and Google documents were being deleted in panic.

Vancouver ESP center closed in mid-June 2017.

Sarah files complaint against branding supervisor Dr. Danielle Roberts with NY State health department on July 7, 2017. Reply on July 11: No action taken except to recommend reporting it to law enforcement.

Jennifer Kobelt files complaint against psychological experiments of Dr. Brandon Porter with health department on August 16, 2017. Reply on September 6: no action, no recommendation to report it to law enforcement.

Frank Report posts on August 17, 2017 that Clare Bronfman filed criminal charges against Sarah Edmondson in Vancouver.

New York Times publishes story on October 1, 2017.

Very nice synopsis of the key dates. I suppose you are wondering what took MSM so long to report and why the Albany Times Union was not the first to report this? MSM has to vet their sources much more thoroughly then a blogger does.( the proof is in the pudding so to speak with the whole Trump Russia shitstorm and the Dossier). they need to take time to interview their sources and run it through legal.

My thoughts on why Ally Mack and Nicky Clyne were not mentioned at all is: Sarah appears to have been a direct report to Lauren Salzman who recruited Sarah so to speak. Chain of command may go up to Ally Mack but the NYT cant run with hearsay.

Nicki Clyne is scheduled to appear at Super Megafest which is a ComicCon event in Marlborough MA this weekend. Lets see if she cancels – http://www.supermegafest.com/

While hearsay is not admissible in court, newspapers and other media are not bound by this. If enough sources corroborate something, even if only through hearsay, newspapers may print the hearsay (likely without taking an explicit position on what the truth is). And the media could attempt to get a statement from the accused person, and report either the statement or the lack of response.

Since Allison Mack’s involvement would get the story even more attention, and competing media could easily read Frank Report to find Allison’s potential involvement and one-up the story, I’m sure that the NYT looked very hard at whether they could report that Allison was a central figure. And clearly they did not think they could.

It will be interesting how other media outlets treat Allison’s involvement.

Give me the data
6 years ago

Allegedly DOS has been around since 2015.
But living in Vancouver, Sarah would not have know about it then.

And think of the master/servant circles as separate sleeper cells, many do not know who/who are not in DOS, but they know that there are others – the sisterhood. Sarah may not have know who else was in it, or who was spearheading it. However, I would be shocked if Vanguard’s name was not invoked to help recruit her.

Well the proof is in the pudding, as they say. If he were innocent as his faithful have been claiming, he’d be here facing the music. Instead he’s in hiding. Hiding in fear and terror. One would think that an enlightened soul would have a much better handle on his emotions.

Not so.

He’s a shattered child in the body an adult narcissist. Unable to distinguish between right and wrong. Unable to face his own responsibility. Unable to refute the claims made against him. His fight or flight instinct tells him to run because he knows his house of cards has toppled.

And even if his outlandish claims about his greatness were even 10 percent real, it wouldn’t matter because the man child himself is a cancer.

Perhaps he can add that to his resume. In the same way he sets off car alarms, that just his presence alone causes cancer in other people. He seems to have empirical data to suggest this is the case. And even if hasn’t personally caused cancer in those around him, he has still succeeded in spreading his contagious mental cancer that morphs people into unrecognizable shells of themselves as they die an ugly, slow, painful death.

I would love to challenge him face to face but that will never happen because he’s too chicken shit to face me.

Too chicken shit to face anyone.

A sad sad waste of energy and space. That’s the complete measure of this man. Nothing more. Nothing less.

And any of you faithful still reading this blog should be asking yourselves, why is the great enlightened one in hiding? Why has he never faced the music? Why has he let all those who have given everything for him, take all the blame? Why do you still support his lie?

He was never there for you. He’s only ever been in it for himself.

And all of you, Nancy, Lauren et al, everyone of you is going to blindly take the fall for a man who has succeeded in conning you out of everything.

I hope this is just the beginning of a horrible fiery end for this shit weasel.

I was hardly in deep, but by extension and through others, he succeeded in fucking me over. I for one am ecstatic this is now happening to such a deserving man child.

Keith isn’t smart. Don’t flatter these type of people. Smart people live moral lives because they know teleology surrounds them and thus, they know life’s purpose. He’s just another conceited and manipulative conman who formed a sex cult that thinks he can foolishly escape justice. He’s not even original, and he’s a coward too as he scampered away to Fiji or wherever prior to this story hitting the wire. Justice comes for everyone – it is either your benefactor or scourge – here, in the next life, and/or both. Its scourge only becomes worse in the latter for criminals.

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.
