Cynical Realist: Law enforcement will do nothing about Raniere; will go after whistle blowers when media dies down

Guest View: By One Who Knows

A reader of the Frank Report asked, “When is the State government going to do their investigation of this creeper?”

Here is my answer: You must be new around here – especially if you think that the New York State government is going to do anything to shut down Keith Raniere or any of his illegal operations.

Danielle Roberts D.O. branded blackmailed women for Keith Raniere.

The way it works is like this: The New York Times shocks the world when it prints stories about Dr. Danielle Roberts branding slave women for Raniere – and Dr. Brandon Porter running unauthorized “brain experiments” on women and children (

Then Governor Andrew Cuomo promises to have his state agencies investigate these matters ( – and waits for the news cycle to move on. And here we are six weeks later and not a word about any such investigations.

Nothing is going to happen to either doctor because they are both protected by Raniere’s very expensive cloak of protection. As long as he can bribe and bully the people who can stop him, he’ll never be stopped. Even if he has to run away to Mexico for a short stay until things cool down, he’ll be back. And he’ll still be fully protected from all the local law enforcement authorities just as he always has been.

So, sit back and watch what happens to those who are trying to take him down. Those are the people that local law enforcement will go after on some bullshit charges.

If any charges are ever brought against Raniere and the Bronfman Brats, it won’t be by any law enforcement agency within 100 miles of Albany. That because all those agencies have been bought off or scared off by Raniere’s unlimited supply of Bronfman money. (I think the same is probably true for the law enforcement officials in the Buffalo area). Why else do you think all this crazy shit has been allowed to go on for so long? Do you think no one in local law enforcement knows about any of it? Do you think no one has filed complaints about about Raniere’s criminal enterprise? Or do you just think that local law enforcement has been really busy for the past 15 years? WTFU!

I’ve been watching the battle of Vanguard in New York State four years . I cannot believe the apathy the people of New York . They let this modern day mobster run around ripping people off, raping young girls and women, not paying his shell company’s taxes, starving and branding women, mulling cash & laundering it from Mexico, running a multi-level pyramid scheme when he’s been barred by the state Attorney General from doing so, just to name a few crimes.
No one in New York State Government seems to give a carp about this and the citizens of New York are not up in arms about this. You live with a modern-day criminal in your home state and no one seems to give a shit. What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Why are you not on the phone every day too your local and state police , your legislatures, the IRS, the FBI, your local TV & news stations or your state Attorney General’? NXIVM cannot buy everyone in New York .
Is it because it doesn’t affect you directly . What the hell has to happen ? Does it Jonestown need to take place in Albany with the people of New York to go oh my God this guy was really bad ?

Then there are the people of Mexico . This guy lives in your country now . Where are the fathers that this man fucks your daughters and laughs at you behind your backs because you buy his bullshit and pay for your children’s courses . Robs from your children inheritance ? Do none of you give a shit ? This organization broke up your married children, separated their mothers and fathers from their children, separated them from you .
None of you give a shit . He’s in the land where judges can be bribed and police can be bought off and none of you are doing anything to see that justice to take place for your family’s. He ruined a lot of your children lives.

If you appreciate justice, you hope it is possible that law enforcement is moving methodically towards building a case against the Raniere/ Bronfman criminal enterprise.

It might however be more likely that a lovelorn thirtysomething Allison Mack fan will rise up out of his (her?) parents basement and take a run at Keith…
