According to sources, Brandon Porter MD is on his own. Clare Bronfman is not going to pay for his legal defense. Dr. Porter will represent himself pro-se before the medical malpractice board because he reportedly does not have the money to pay for a medical malpractice attorney.
Evidently, the malpractice insurance at St. Peter’s Hospital, where Dr. Porter used to work, will not cover his extra-curricular medical practices. Media exposure of Dr. Porter’s human fright experiments prompted the hospital board to ask him to resign.
Ironically, Clare Bronfman spends millions of dollars per year pursuing litigation against various perceived enemies of Keith Raniere, yet chose not to invest $50-$100,000 to defend Dr. Porter and possibly save his license and him from possible criminal exposure.
Being a member of Executive Success Programs, Dr. Porter likely has no savings. Viva Executive Success.
One has to wonder if is this a portend of things to come. Supposing that the underlings of ESP are charged with various crimes – crimes which Nancy Salzman, Clare Bronfman and Keith Raniere devised and encouraged them to commit – it looks like they’ll be left on their own to defend themselves.
Most of the Executive Success Programs members have no savings.
Kids, you’re on your own.
Not long ago, Allison Mack was telling NXIVM members, that Keith Raniere advised her to file for bankruptcy. She claimed that her destitution was caused by a bad commercial real estate investment she made in Orange County.
According to sources, Allison told friends that, before she could file bankruptcy, she had to hide some assets. She said Keith advised her to hide the assets, which is bankruptcy fraud.
Sources say, she gave money to Dr. Brandon Porter to assist him in buying his home in Clifton Park. She also bought a vehicle for ESP teacher Marcelo Ortiz in Monterrey.
I could not find any online record of Allison Mack filing bankruptcy.
But if it is true, it is ironic since Keith and Clare Bronfman spent literally millions in legal fees intervening in bankruptcy cases of their enemies alleging fraud and the hiding of assets.
Things online are gaining traction for NXIVM and Keith Raniere. On You Tube, there are now 527 search results for videos about NXIVM. Keith Raniere has 723 results.
Most of these videos have been posted in the last 30 days. I don’t have an exact count of the number of videos that were available prior to the publication of the New York Times article on October 17, 2017, that began the worldwide media interest in Keith, but my best guess is it was under 50 videos.
In Monterrey, Mexico, Jimena Garza has been showing ESPians the 2000 movie “The Contender”. This is not the first time this movie has been shown. It has been shown in Clifton Park during times when the media is reporting on various alleged crimes of Keith Raniere.
Some people believe that this is not coincidental and that Keith wants ESPians to recognize the parallels between Keith and the female lead in the movie, Senator Laine Hanson.
The plot of the movie is:
U.S. President Jackson Evans must select a new Vice President following the death of his previous vice president. The President chooses to break the glass ceiling by nominating a woman, Laine Hanson, a senator from Ohio.
Approval from both houses of Congress is required. Standing in her way is Congressman Sheldon Runyon, whose investigation into Hanson’s background turned up an incident where she was apparently photographed participating in a drunken orgy as part of a sorority initiation.
The confirmation hearings begin in Washington, D.C.. Runyon addresses Hanson’s alleged sexual episode. Hanson refuses to address the incident, neither confirming nor denying anything, and tries to turn the discussion towards political issues.
Runyon starts rumors in the media saying the sexual escapade in college was done in exchange for money making it prostitution.
Hanson offers to withdraw her name, to save President Evans’ administration embarrassment. She refuses to fight back or address Runyon’s charges, arguing that to answer the allegations dignifies them being asked in the first place—something she does not believe.
President Evans meets with Runyon, informing him he will not choose Hanson as Vice President. Runyon recommends Virginia Governor Jack Hathaway, who is hailed as a hero after he recently dove into a lake in a failed attempt to save a drowning girl.
They make an agreement that Runyon will back down on his attacks if President Evans chooses Hathaway as Vice President. President Evans requests Runyon make a public statement defending Hathaway.
Hanson, Hathaway and Runyon are invited to the White House. President Evans shocks them by showing an FBI report that proves Hathaway paid the woman to drive off the bridge into the lake, part of a plan to increase his approval ratings. Hathaway is arrested and Runyon is disgraced because he vouched for Hathaway’s integrity just hours earlier.
President Evans meets with Hanson, and she finally tells what actually happened that night in college. She said that she did arrive at a fraternity house to have sex with two men as part of an initiation, but changed her mind before any sex occurred. However, she did not prove her innocence, citing that by doing so will further the idea that it was acceptable to ask the questions in the first place.
President Evans addresses Congress, where he chastises Democrats and Republicans who blocked Hanson’s confirmation. He calls out Runyon, who leaves in humiliation. Although he declares that Hanson had asked for her nomination to be withdrawn, so he could finish his presidency with triumph over controversy, he remains adamant and calls for an immediate confirmation vote. Congress applauds.
Keith Hanson is proclaimed Vanguard Vice President.
The film justifies Keith’s not responding to allegations from the media. The difference is that the allegations were generally false in the case of Senator Hanson. But in the case of Keith Raniere, we have every reason to believe they are true.
Further, the allegation of sexual indecency alleged against Hanson were of the victimless crime category, even if they were true. The allegations against Keith Raniere are clearly that he is a predator and uses others for his gain and to their harm. There are many victims of Keith Raniere.
The film is a clever selection, however, worthy of a Vanguard.
