Law enforcement

Sen. Gillibrand’s father worked for NXIVM, quit after 4 months, then Salzman falsely accused him of sexual harassment

Sen. Kristin Gillibrand may not know the full extent of NXIVM’s abuse of women in the Albany, New York area.  Her father may know a lot more about it.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said she now thinks Bill Clinton should have resigned as President because of the various sexual abuse allegations that were made against him before and after he was elected President.

As a result, I think it’s fair to ask her, [and the other US Senator for New York State, Chuck Schumer] to hold hearings on NXIVM, a sexually abusive cult that brands women on their pubic region and blackmails them into silence.

Sen. Gillibrand is making a stand against a member of her own party, the former Democratic President, Bill Clinton. Quite possibly she knows something about NXIVM and its abuse of the legal process because the Senator’s own father, Douglas P. Rutnik, once worked for NXIVM for four months.
It’s fair to state that Mr. Rutnik, an attorney who offered his services as a consultant and legal adviser, soon found out just how devious and dangerous the cult of Keith Raniere is.
Mr. Rutnik was retained as a consultant and legal adviser by NXIVM in 2004, at the rate of $25,000 per month. He was hired to help them resolve an array of legal and political problems that were hampering NXIVM’s operations – or so he thought. One of those problems concerned the long-overdue payment that Raniere owed to the New York State Attorney General because of his closed-down Consumers’ Buyline operation.
All this stuff happened long before Mr. Rutnik’s daughter became a US Senator.
Mr. Rutnick’s main contact person was Nancy Salzman. After four months, Mr. Rudnik decided to quit, having been informed of possible illegal activities that NXIVM and Mr. Raniere were involved in.
NXIVM decided he could not just quit. They decided to sue Mr. Rutnik and, as an additional threatening gesture, NXIVM reared false allegations of ‘sexual harassment’ against, of all people, Nancy Salzman.
The lie was despicable, but Mr. Rutnik had seen enough. He settled by simply returning every dollar they had paid him. In short, Mr. Rutnik ended up receiving no payment for  the services he provided to NXIVM.
In light of the revelations of longstanding sexual abuse by Mr. Raniere, has the time come for Senator Gillibrand to request hearings about whether law enforcement on the federal level should conduct a serious investigation?
Senator Gillibrand’s concerns about former President Clinton are issues that occurred in the past. Sexual abuse and exploitation are going on right now in her backyard by Keith Raniere.
If she needs to get some firsthand knowledge of the way this cult lies, and abuses the system, she need only ask her father.
This is not to disparage Mr. Rutnik. He was a victim of this vicious, women-abusing, criminal cult and its leader, Keith Raniere.
Here is the legal settlement agreement with NXIVM and Mr. Rutnik.

  • I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this settlement agreement and it makes me wonder what NXIVM had done with U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand father to get him to agree to this kind of settlement.

    I hope her or her staff look into NXIVM and what they are doing to women and the illegal activities they are involved with.

    Knowing now how they use their membership to lie for them, it makes me wonder if those involved in the settlement did in fact lie for Nancy Salzman to force his hand in “just returning the money they paid him”.

    A Rational Mind has to question why were all these members involved with this matter?

    Alex Bentancourt in 2006 was one of the top selling members of Mexico. Bentancourt is also the one who is lying about the Toni Zarattini (and now serveral others) extortion plot in Mexico. After Zarattini left NXIVM and warned others about DOS, Bentancourt claimed Is it karma that Barbara Bouchey has been included in the Alex Bentancourt fake extortion plot?

    Barbara Bouchey in 2006 was on NXIVM Executive Board and was one of Raniere’s girlfriends. She had been involved with other legal cases to included the Rick Ross case where she testified while she was still in the inner circle about where training notes were kept. Bouchey also was the go to financial planner for the wealthy NXIVM members including the Bronfman sisters.

    Clare Brofman in 2006 was working her way (or more like buying her way up in NXIVM. Clare paid for most of the people she enrolled into NXIVM. Nancy Salzman did am amazing job pitting Clare and her sister Sara against each other like a jealous mother to see what daughter would give her the most. It was like watching a TV sitcom of Mommy Dearest – the NXIVM addition.

    Edgar Boone in 2006 was most likely NXIVM highest earner. He was the king of Mexico and the fastest growing member with students below him. It is said that a lot of Mexican students paid for the programs in cash. in doing so Edgar would deposit most the funds into his bank account and wire it into accounts other than NXIVM main account. He also had a hand in helping to bring cash across the broader. Some of this cash went right to Nancy’s safe, some went to other states where gift visa card were bought and sent to Raniere and other high ranking members of NXIVM.

    Ellen Gibson in 2006 was a low ranking student who most likely didn’t even know what was going on. Upon her resigning from NXIVM it was learned that Nancy Salzman had asked her to open a bank account for Salzman because Salzman told her she had opened as many as the government would allow her to. Unknowning this was a lie, Gibson had agreed. Upon recommendation from the person she shared this information with, the account was closed and funds returned to accounting office at NXIVM. The good new is the account had not started to be used yet.

    Sara Brofman in 2006, as her sister was busy working or buying her way up in the company and competing with her sister for the attention of Nancy Salzman. Again, neither sister could see how Nancy was playing them off each other. I think to this day they still don’t see how they are being played the fools.

    Pam Cafritz in 2006 was Raniere’s #1. She would do anything for him. It is well known that Cafritz was his pimp and was on the front lines of setting women up for grooming to be his bed mates. Pam had been with Raniere since his days with his old company CBI. Pam is now dead.

    Suzanne Kemp in 2006 was a mid level student who broke up with her partner in TX and moved to Albany to be a part of NXIVM mission. When she found out somethings that NXIVM was really up to she dropped of the radar and stopped going. Suzanne is now dead from cancer.

    Wayne Bates in 2006 was a mid level student from Boston who moved back and forth to Albany. NXIVM ran through his money and tossed him aside. Wayne is now dead.

    Luis Montes in 2006 was a low level student from Mexico that travel to and from Albany. He is now married to his Sugar Mama Rosa Laura Junco who is a queen in DOS. How he was involved with this settlement in 2006 is beyond me.

    Franca DiCreneseno in 2006 was a low level student from Albany. She is mostly involved in Real Estate in the Albany area. How she would be involved in this is beyond me.

    It’s just kind of creepy how many members it takes to do a settlement for Nancy Salzman.

  • Mind Control – NXIVM Style – Let me count the ways
    NXIVM two top tools used to mind-bending and mind-control are Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis.
    Nancy Salzman was one of the top trainers in the world of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She was also a master hypnotist. She never was a hypnotherapist. Nancy “sold” herself as a therapist but she was not a licensed psychotherapist nor did she have a certification in psychiatric nursing as she claims she does.
    Keith Raniere is also a master hypnotist, studied NLP and read a lot of books from people such as Tony Robbins (who is also a master at NLP) and read a lot about mind control over the years. One of his favorite authors is Ron L Hubbard who started the Church of Scientology.
    NLP and hypnosis are excellent therapeutic tools, in the right hands with the right intent.
    Just like a knife in the hand of a surgeon can save a life. A knife in the hand of a killer can take a life.
    The knife is just a knife; it’s the intent behind it.
    So why is it important to even bring this up. Here is a really good example that fits the sex issues going on in NXIVM.
    The link below is a case of a lawyer Michael W Fine from Ohio that found guilty of hypnotizing six + female clients for sexual gratification. These women didn’t even remember having sex with this lawyer. One noticed that her bra didn’t seem to be on the same way after her meeting the lawyer than before the meeting which started the entire chain of events that lead to the investigation, arrest and finally prison sentence.
    https://lawandcrime.com/crazy/disbarred-attorney-pleads-guilty-to-hypnotizing-clients-for-sexual-gratification/
    “The criminal side of the case came to an end on Monday when Fine pleaded guilty to five counts of kidnapping and one count of attempted kidnapping — all five charges also carried a sexual motivation designation. Under the agreement, Fine is expected to be sentenced to 12-years in prison. Prosecutors also dropped a number of additional charges that Fine would’ve faced had the case gone to trial next week.
    The sentencing hearing is November 7. Fine is expected to serve at least 12 years in prison under the terms of the plea deal. He will also be required to register as a sex offender. Several civil lawsuits have also been filed and are currently pending against Fine.”
    Here is link to a video about the case from the Dr. Phil show
    https://www.drphil.com/videos/woman-claims-her-lawyer-used-hypnosis-so-he-could-take-advantage-of-me-sexually-and-emotionally/
    If Raniere and Salzman are Masters at hypnosis, is it possible that some women are hypotonicity put into a trance to have sex with Raniere? Would the same legal issues as above be a legal issue for him, Salzman and other leaders if they are involved in using hypnosis to convince women to have sex with Raniere? It’s been said by defectors that when a woman finds out that Raniere is not monogamous and had a reaction to this fact that the upper leadership of women come in and “work their issues.”
    Could it be that the female Leadership is brainwashing women into believing Raniere’s behavior has good intent and that if they could “just see things their way” (Raniere is not owned by any woman and you will only sleep with him. However, he will sleep with whoever he pleases)?

    10 Ways to Protect Yourself From NLP Mind Control
    https://ultraculture.org/blog/2014/01/16/nlp-10-ways-protect-mind-control/
    It’s a good page with a lot of good information. I suggested going and reading all the entire page through. Make sure you read the ten ways to protect yourself at the end of the article. Those who are in NXIVM or have left can see how they use NLP to “Get Ya.”
    “How exactly does this thing work?
    NLP is taught in a pyramid structure, with the more advanced techniques reserved for multi-thousand-dollar seminars. To oversimplify an overcomplicated subject, it more or less works like this: first, the user (or “NLPer,” as NLP people often refer to themselves—and I should note here that the large majority of NLP people, especially those who are primarily therapists, are likely well-meaning) of NLP pays very, very close attention to the person they’re working with. By watching subtle cues like eye movement, skin flush, pupil dilation and nervous tics, a skilled NLP person can quickly determine:
    a) What side of the brain a person is predominantly using;
    b) What sense (sight, smell, etc.) is most predominant in their brain;
    c) How their brain stores and utilizes information (ALL of this can be gleaned from eye movements);
    d) When they’re lying or making information up.
    After this initial round of information gathering, the “NLPer” begins to slowly and subtly mimic the client, taking on not only their body language but also their speech mannerisms, and will begin speaking with language patterns designed to target the client’s primary sense.
    An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.
    For instance, a person predominantly focused on sight will be spoken to in language using visual metaphors—”Do you see what I’m saying?” “Look at it this way”—while a person for which hearing is the dominant sense will be spoken to in auditory language—”Hear me out,” “I’m listening to you closely.”
    By mirroring body language and linguistic patterns, the NLPer is attempting to achieve one very specific response: rapport. Rapport is the mental and physiological state that a human enters when they let their social guard down, and it is generally achieved when a person concludes that the person they’re talking to is just like them. See how that works, broadly? An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.
    Once rapport is achieved, the NLPer will then begin subtly leading the interaction. Having mirrored the other person, they can now make subtle changes to actually influence the other person’s behavior. Combined with subtle language patterns, leading questions and a whole slew of other techniques, a skilled NLPer can at this point steer the other person wherever they like, as long as the other person isn’t aware of what’s happening and thinks everything is arising organically, or has given consent. That means it’s actually fairly hard to use NLP to get people to act out-of-character, but it can be used for engineering responses within a person’s normal range of behavior—like donating to a cause, making a decision they were putting off, or going home with you for the night if they might have considered anyway.
    From this point, the NLPer will seek to do two things—elicit and anchor. Eliciting happens when an NLPer uses leading and language to engineer an emotional state—for instance, hunger. Once a state has been elicited, the NLPer can then anchor it with a physical cue—for instance, touching your shoulder. In theory, if done right, the NLPer can then call up the hungry state any time they touch your shoulder in the same way. It’s conditioning, plain and simple.”
    Woman sentenced to 15 months in texting suicide case
    http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/03/us/michelle-carter-texting-suicide-sentencing/index.html
    https://nypost.com/2017/06/16/woman-in-texting-suicide-case-found-guilty-of-involuntary-manslaughter/
    This case involves coercion to get people to do things they would not necessarily do if they didn’t feel pressured to do so.
    Since NXIVM upper leadership from Raniere, both Salzman’s on down through the executive board are well trained in the art of hypnosis and NLP (which they call their advanced technology) – they have the ability to coercers others into doing things they would not do under normal situations.
    Put a student on limited sleep, limited food intake and fear of punishment for not walking the company line – Their Mission and you have the perfect storm for someone ripe for mind control. It makes what Michelle Carter did with her boyfriend look like a sideshow in a circus.
    Is this how they get their students to sleep with Raniere, bring cash across the border knowing it’s an illegal act, not pay their taxes, punish other students, ask students to go deep into depth to take courses they cannot afford, ask them to give up their careers to move to Albany to work dead-end jobs for little pay and to set up bank accounts in their names that NXIVM than uses for their own purposes such as paying commissions. This is a list of few things that students will do for their Prefect and Vanguard.

  • Dr. Phil did a story on the lawyer who hypnotized this women clients and than sexually assaulted them. Very creepy. Since this lawyer has been arrested for using hypnosis to sexually abuse his clients it appears anyone who Keith, Nancy, Lauren etc abused in any manner now have a case.

    https://www.drphil.com/videos/woman-claims-her-lawyer-used-hypnosis-so-he-could-take-advantage-of-me-sexually-and-emotionally/

    Lauren followed her mom around for years as a child growing up learning her skills. After college, she joined NXIVM and was personally mentored by her mom Nancy Salzman and Keith Raniere. Anyone who felt pressured into being branded, here’s your case.

  • NXIVM two top tools used to mind-bending and mind-control are Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnosis.

    Nancy Salzman was one of the top trainers in the world of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She was also a master hypnotist. She never was a hypnotherapist. Nancy “sold” herself as a therapist but she was not a licensed psychotherapist nor did she have a certification in psychiatric nursing as she claims she does.

    Keith Raniere is also a master hypnotist, studied NLP and read a lot of books from people such as Tony Robbins (who is also a master at NLP) and read a lot Ron L Hubbard who started the Church of Scientology.
    NLP and hypnosis are excellent therapeutic tools, in the right hands with the right intent.

    Just like a knife in the hand of a surgeon can save a life. A knife in the hand of a killer can take a life.
    The knife is just a knife; it’s the intent behind it.

    So why is it important to even bring this up. Here is a really good example that fits the sex issues going on in NXIVM.

    If Raniere and Salzman are Masters at hypnosis, is it possible that some women are hypotonicity put into a trance to have sex with Raniere? Would the same legal issues as above be a legal issue for him, Salzman and other leaders if they are involved in using hypnosis to convince women to have sex with Raniere?

    • To Anonymous: All off those individuals from NXIVM were plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Rutnik et al. Yep, even Barbara Bouchey who left the cult several years later.

      • Wow, there is something fishy about this settlement. If it is true, how come so many students are involved in it. Seems like total BS to me and another Raniere Raindeer game to pressure someone into a settlement
