Comparing the various claims of Keith Raniere about his astounding history, one finds they are often contradictory. Some people say that is because he is a liar.
On his being a judo champ
Let’s look at his claims.
He was East Coast Judo champion at age 12
2006 Bio on www.keithraniere,com:
At the age of 11, he was an Eastern Coast Judo Champion.
His father, James Raniere, said, Keith was East Coast judo champ at age 12.
2011: James Del Negro testimony
James Del Negro: He actually was a judo champion when he was young.
2017 Keith Raniere website: Keith Raniere was ‘an East Coast Judo Champion at age 11.’
when questioned by Keith Raniere’s lawyer, Ms. Dones said she thought Keith was lying: “We can’t find any proof of … him winning the East Coast Judo championship when he was 12.”
On Keith Raniere tying record for the 100 yard dash
1988 Albany Times Union: Keith told the reporter he tied with the state record for the 100 yard-dash.
2010 Macleans His father, James Raniere, said, Keith tied the New York high school record for the 100-yard dash.
Susan Dones said in a deposition: “NXIVM …lied …. about many of Raniere’s /Vanguard’s supernatural abilities…. Him breaking the hundred yard dash — he doesn’t physically have the body type to do that.”
The FBI found out recently that he barely passed his university courses. His father would not speak to the media. The biggest lie is that he was a computer programmer in 1970’s. Yet his lawyer says no big deal everybody lies. If I’m employeur and my employee had declared such bogus claims in his/her CV, I would not hire and if hired then I would fire such person.
Bubba wants to know if anyone has a copy of the Guinness World Records that say Raniere (Mr. Smarty Pants) is the Smartest Man in the World (echo… echo…. echo….)
I’ve search high and low and cannot find a copy anywhere. If not, I think he’s a little short fat lying pile of Hooey. Down south, we have one thing to say about a him “pour boy his a con man and a child molester, bless his soul”.
