Hi Keith

Keith Raniere

21 Oregon Trail

Waterford, New York 12188


Hi Keith,

The publicity part of the work is well underway, and I want to thank you for hiring me to be your publicist. I know you fired me in 2008 [after I recovered $26 million in assets you were trying to steal from the Bronfman sisters] but you were kind enough to keep me engaged in the work, by ordering Clare Bronfman to perjure herself to get me indicted.

I hope you agree I had a role in getting you the publicity you desired, and, just like you said you wanted it: accurate and honest media coverage.

As I see it, we are running about a month behind Harvey Weinstein, but will soon surpass him in overall media attention. He was better known; it takes time to catch up; but, Keith, please remember, you are coming on the world stage rather suddenly, rather like a white hot iron when it touches the skin.

Just like Harvey Weinstein, we are heading toward the denouement. Harvey is expected to be indicted next week. For you, the shift away from creepy cult leader to target of law enforcement with co-conspirators, victims, and the heroic few who busted away, and worked to put you down, is here now.

You are going from weird to criminal. Your indictment, along with Clare Bronfman’s, should be coming soon. Be patient. All good things take time.

I hope you two will enjoy your indictments as much as you salivated over seeing others indicted. You may recall when you first hired me, you wanted to give me bonuses if I would help get Toni Natalie, Joseph O’Hara and Rick Ross indicted.

You may recall I refused, and said you should concentrate on self-help teachings and positive press. You chose to ignore me. You said “justice and ethics demand their indictments.”

Now, I see you were right – not about Toni, Rick or Joe, but “justice and ethics” demand your indictment. The public will soon be seeing yours and Clare’s indictments, if I err not.

As you say, “He who has the most joy, wins.”

Frank Parlato

PS: Let me know if you have any other assignments for me, Keith; this one’s almost finished.

    A former star of The CW’s “Smallville” is a high-ranking member of a sex cult, according to a bizarre new report.

    The group is called DOS, and it’s supposedly a secret society within another group called NXIVM, which poses as a run-of-the-mill self-help organization.

    On Nov. 8, a former spokesman for NXIVM told The Sun that a “Hollywood actress” is a “key recruiter” for the DOS, which allegedly stands for “dominus obsequious sororium,” which is Latin for “master over the slave women.” On Nov. 9, the Daily Mail identified the actress as Allison Mack, who starred as Clark Kent’s sidekick, Chloe Sullivan, for 10 years on “Smallville.”

    Reportedly, Allison Mack is part of this cult. And she is very near the head of it, reporting directly to Keith Raniere. According to these reports, women who fail to obey Allison Mack are beaten with a paddle, and she is responsible for selecting Keith’s sexual partners as well as doing “normal” recruiting for the cult.

    But it’s not all fun and dominion for Allison Mack, who is described as “both perpetrator and victim.” She, too, has to stay as thin as possible — consuming as little as 500 to 800 calories per day and running 40 miles a week.

    It is believed that she was a prize addition to Raniere’s cult because, as a celebrity, she added a degree of polish to Raniere’s image and to his organization.

    No one accuses Allison Mack of setting out to do all of this, though — it’s believed that she was brainwashed, just like the many other victims.

    [Hollywood sex scandals have] finally hit the geek contingent where we live. Allison Mack, the actress who portrayed the good-as-gold, girl-next-door confidante to a super-powered Clark Kent on SMALLVILLE has been named as a high ranking member of a so-called self-help group called NXIVM, which the New York Times recently outed as a cult that brands women. Acording to Britisth tabloid, The Sun, NXIVM founder Keith Rainere has an ‘Emmy Award-winning actress’ as a key recruiter for DOS, a subset of NXIVM that operates as a “master-slave hierarchy, with Raniere at the top, and Mack as his immediate subordinate.”

    Women “lucky enough” to get invited to the group are ordered to strip down so that they can be branded with a design that incorporates Raniere’s and Mack’s initials.

    (see the whole article for a Tweet-storm)

    In what will most likely be (you never know these days) the most bizarre and unexpected story you’ll read today, former Smallville actress Allison Mack, who fans may remember as Chloe Sullivan, is currently under investigation for being a high-level recruiter for a very sinister sounding sex cult.

    Yes, you read that correctly. The group which calls themselves DOS, is reportedly a secret society for the highest ranking female members within the self-help group NXIVM, which apparently to outsiders, is just seen as a normal self-improvement group that offers classes to teach people how to live a successful and fulfilling life.

    Ex-members of the group, however, told The New York Times that NXIVM actually is a cult for people at high levels of the group. Now, Daily Mail has revealed that a key spokesperson for the group is apparently Allison Mack.

    Actress Allison Mack — best known for playing Clark Kent’s friend Chloe Sullivan on the TV show Smallville — has made headlines recently for her involvement in an alleged sex cult masquerading as a self-help group called NXIVM. The group, founded by a man named Keith Raniere, was first exposed in a New York Times feature.

    But then, Frank Parlato, a former spokesman for NXIVM, claimed in his blog that Allison is second in command. In fact, he stated that she’s been running a sorority within the cult that brands women, presides over them like they’re slaves, and recruits top performers for Keith’s harem!

  • https://stopru.org/allison-mack-from-smallville-would-be-at-the-controls-of-a-terrifying-sect-of-sexual/8342

    According to The Sun, the actress of 35 years (which is no longer turned since 2015) is the leader of the group controversial Nxivm, a terrifying sect which will hold close to one hundred women, sex slaves of the leader Keith Raniere in Albany (New York). In appearance, Nxivm offers professional development courses to all those who wish to find their way in their private or professional life. In reality, the organization would exercise terrible psychological pressure on its members, who would be the victims of malnutrition and who suffer bodily injury. The members would be so marked in iron red during an initiation rite with the initials of Keith Raniere… when it is not the initials of Allison Mack.

  • https://theqtimes.com/allison-mack-the-actress-of-smallville-would-be-the-number-2-of-a-sect-frightening-here/1038

    According to Frank Parlato, a former spokesman for the group, which has since opened a blog denouncing the actions of the sect, Allison Mack would be more than a mere adherent. It would be a “recruiting” key to the DOS program and the “harem” of Keith Raniere, and would she even suggested some corporal punishment. It is to be noted that there are two symbols engraved on the BACK -A M.

    • She’s probably quiet because her “role” in recruiting Allison consisted of “Hey, I took this class and it was pretty helpful to me, maybe you might get something out of it too.”

      It wasn’t “Hey, I took this class, and if you do to, you’ll become a sex slave for life to this guy who calls himself Vanguard where you’ll be restricted to 500-800 calorie diets and be required to brand yourself.”

      Do people not know how cults work?

      • If that’s what happened then she should be coming out with it. Sounding off about multiple causes and then being shtum about this one zero degrees away from here is off. The media cycle will blow up soon enough and will involve her, better she is on top of it rather than reactive.

        • Sorry, that doesn’t make any sense. Should some executive who was involved in the formation of Enron who left well before the scandal happened all of sudden just say something about those scandals?

          If the media asks her about her involvement, they’ll probably go through her agent, and then she may release a response.

          • It is INEVITABLE now….
            With Kristin doing press for her upcoming TV show and publicizing a movie on sexual assault, some reporter soon will ask about the related sex abuse story involving her former friend and co-star….so those eager to hear her comments will get their wish.
            I’m surprised that (so far) the yellow rags hawking this DOS story haven’t thrown in her name, unjustly, just to hype the celeb power.

    • Thanks, reading up on Girls By Design now. Crazy stuff. Don’t know why people are downplaying this woman’s involvement.

  • I don’t think Keithy boy believed this would get so much publicity. The so-called “smartest man in the world” just thought he could sit in his tiny corner of the world, legally untied to his scam, pilfering money away from the moron Bronfmans and the rich Mexicans, and fucking some brainwashed women here and there. Even if there was that occasional blip in the media, it would eventually go away quickly so he could get back to business as usual, e.g., being the lazy parasitical fuck that he is. It certainly wouldn’t make national news, let alone world news. Unfortunately for him, being the moral imbecile that he is, “the Vanguard” couldn’t see that there are limits to what people morally accept, and near-vaginal branding and manipulating women is a big no-no. He couldn’t have predicted that the diligence of Frank Parlato, the shock of Sarah Edmondson, nor the nurturing instinct of Catherine Oxenberg, would bring it to this level.

    “Pride comes before the fall.”

    Lucifer should’ve known.

  • OK, NYS Police, it’s all up to you guys, now. Frank has literally lead you to this asshole’s door and, along the way, documented many of his illegal activities. Are you FINALLY going to do something or are you just going to increase the payments that keep Raniere and his crew safe from investigation and prosecution? I’m tired of all this crazy shit going on in what used to be a great neighborhood and it pisses me off that you guys have done NOTHING about this for almost 15 years.

    • I’ve been following the story since the Times Union Series in 2012 but was aware of NXIVM long before.

      It is time for the NY AG or the FBI to step in. Keith has been escalating in his sadistic behavior . Kristin Keeffe forewarned everyone in her recorded conversation with Barbara Bouchey. It should not take a Jim Jones or David Koresh type incident or the loss of life via suicide or any other method to move in on Keith, et al.

      Robert Mueller was able to get an indictment on Paul Manafort in less than 150 days. This should be an easy investigation.

      And for those residents of KW who have rental properties be careful who you lease to. It is well known if you sublet to NXIVM or one of their shells your property will decrease in value. They are not known for taking care of their properties. Just look at 1-3 Flintlock short of the new landscaping on the side of #1 the three linked townhomes look run down on the outside compared to the other townhomes there.

  • Oh, Keith. How fun it is to watch you and your minions burn.
    Party at my place on the day Keith and Clare go down!

  • Will you make a special about your case when it is over? I would like to know what it took to make you ones enemy. I personally do not understand the recovering $ 26M part. He tried to steal it from the same Bronfman who got you indicted? That sounds awfully strange to me. I mean they could have simply made a transaction.
