Two readers analyze: Keith has ‘pride issue’ and ‘inner deficiency’

Does Keith Raniere suffer from  a “pride issue”?

A reader commented about DOS branded slave Jimena Gaza, the head of the Monterrey ESP center:

Jimena Garza tried to recruit me into DOS. She didn’t use that word, but she told me about the secret group. She didn’t tell me about the branding but I didn’t trust her.

Showing “The Contender” just makes her look more guilty. People here at the school are starting to talk about her behind her back. Omar too. They look like blind idiots. Everyone knows Keith started the women’s group because he is the head of everything.

I think he has what we call a “pride issue”.

Jimena Garza is an odd kind of wife? Omar Boone with his wife branded slave Jimena Garza. She bears the initials of Keith Raniere on her pubic region.


Dani Padilla is a DOS slave of Keith Raneire and sports his initials on her pubic area.



Another reader comments:

I sort of feel bad for poor Keith. He must feel so weak inside that he has to brainwash his power team on the front lines. Dear Miss Mack, Lauren (head of Education?) Salzman, Nicki (baby fat) Clyne, Daniella Padilla and Rosa (funded by daddy dearest] Junco to go do his dirty work – to recruit the eager, trusting women of ESP to get some nudie photos.

Why doesn’t he look at porn like the other desperate lonely fuckers out there?

I think he has a deep dark “inner deficiency” of not enough attention from mommy.

Poor guy. Nancy- would you please give Keith an EM and tell him to stop building an army of sociopathic robots in his image as a cover up for his attachment to power in order to feel special and strong. You both should know that NOTHING in the outside world covers an inner deficiency. You will need to really dig in and do the work, little Keith. Try some introspection and journalling. Maybe you will even get your first stripe.


Keith Raniere has a tremendous need to have people regard him as superior to others. He gets irate when people try to leave his domination.


When justifying having women branded with his initials, Keith Raniere told a woman that no one would object if it were the initials of Abraham Lincoln or Bill Gates.

Am I right in thinking Sarah Edmondson is the only woman who has shown she has the brand? Despite all the coverage it’s got, I’ve not seen one single other example. Plus, she’s been quiet recently on the subject.

Are you really claiming that the dozens of brand photos published here are fake?

Mr. Parlato has an open offer for women to deny that they are branded members of DOS. Not a single woman has denied it.

Are you really asking Sarah Edmondson to pull her pants down on a daily basis to assure you that the brand is still there?

In my book, she deserves the highest praise for putting her name, face, and branding story out in The New York Times. Especially given Raniere’s history of relentless civil and criminal prosecution of his critics.

If you feel the need to throw shade on her, you might start by posting under your own name and email address….

I don’t think The NY Times would have published the story if they thought Edmondson was the only one who was branded.

I left a comment on this thread yesterday, and once again my comment dissappeared. That’s twice now Weird.
But my comment was in agreement with the other one about multiple women showing pictures of their brands.

Why did my comment get deleted? Luke? You fucking with this blog?

VanDouche reeks of all the negative attributes he “teaches”. He’s parasitic, lazy, has exaggerated desires for sex, control, money (despite pretending he doesn’t while he pilfers it via his shell companies), a need to be ingratiated and served, etc., all of them inner deficiencies.

The irony is everyone is deficient in something, but he’s even more so. Hello? He has a harem of women who he controls through brainwashing. He gets his pimp women to do things for him, like recruit other women into the latter, cook for him, drive him around, etc. He holds an annual ten day birthday celebration for himself. And what does he do? He masks it all as “giving of himself” with a fake pseudo-spirituality. What a con job.

Do you have enough empathy left (did you ever have any?) to feel the burn of your “students” throwing your own mutated meanings of words back at you ??

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. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
