A woman from the inside tears apart Clare’s note of support of Raniere

Clare Bronfman 2017
Artist conception [not a real photo] Something smells fishy about Clare’s note. Is it possible that Keith helped her write it?

Artist’s conception: Clare Bronfman is in love with an idealized Vanguard. She believes he loves her for her beauty and magnificent personality and not for her money.

  • I am confused as to why you removed my comment and made it a new post with a new title. Susan Dones is having a field day with it , insisting it must be Barbara…its not. Because you changed the heading and it appears on its own, she is ranting about Barbara being the one who knew Clare well. My opening sentence is..This woman know Clare well….refering to the author of this post. Please put my comment back here too. I will be addressing this crazy tyrate soon. Disgusted !

  • This is someone who has known Clare and many of us who left. You are wise to open your ears and eyes to all the data. When I left, no one spoke to me again unless they were leaving. Some of my very good friends never even asked me what happened. Keith launched a story that we…9 of us were trying to “extort money”…in fact..Clare claimed we were trying to extort it from her and tried to get law enforcement in both Saratoga and Albany to bring charges against us. They wanted nothing to do with her charade because it was obvious to them we were trying to get money that was owed to us …borrowed by Keith or owed for work/commissions.

    Just to clarify…We asked Kieth and Nancy for the money we were owed …no one else..trying to spare Keith the embarrassment that public knowledge of his massive loan might bring.Clare was then conveniently put on the board of Directors the next month. Then she claimed she received an extortion demand. Liar liar pants on fire!

    Interestingly, our famous resignation letter has been resurrected once again. Now we have Emilliano claiming that the the very same people are working with the latest group of “unhappy customers” to shed poor light on NX and extort money from him…yes…this almost 9 year old letter..linking people who haven’t spoken to or even met each other.Care and Emilliano are both liars.

    Worst than that..Keith has built an empire of cruel, inhumane, unethical robots who continue to lie and slander good people. People who want to move on become casualties of the mission and Keiths ego.

    I hope some of my old friends will have the courage to leave and call me….

  • The last time I saw Clare walking in Knox Woods, it was summer and she was wearing either a down or fleece vest. She also looks a lot older then her actual years on the planet. So I can vouch for the comment that woman on the inside writes about Clare being cold all the time.

    Low calorie diets and miles of running plus the other readiness drills, can contribute to a disorder called Anorexia Athletica. That is what the DOS slaves are experiencing. They are setting themselves up for osteopenia/osteoporosis in their elderly years.

    If the author of this is who I think it may be ( I wont say her name for her protection) she has known Clare a really long time and is a true friend for having the courage to say what she is saying.

    • I don’t know if she knows Clare that well. She says Clare is “in love” with VanDouche. Yet, she says she is also afraid of him? Has anyone who has truly been in love with another ever been afraid of them? Do you think Clare really knows what love is in this context? Do you really think VanDouche knows what love is? Real love between human beings is between two people who consider themselves complements. It could never be otherwise. She chose VanDouche over her own father. The man who raised and loved her (and her sister) for years and gave her mega millions of dollars to make sure she didn’t have to worry financially for the rest of her life. She even put a key logger on his machine to spy on him at the request of VanDouche. She’s a confused little (mentally) girl. She is only infatuated with VanDouche, but she’s not in love with him.

  • Despite her statement, Clare may be reaching a tipping point. But she would have to get her sister out too. And if Keith stole rather than lost the Bronfman sister’s millions, then he would still have a war chest with which to fight her.
    Then again, he’s probably more willing to spend someone else’s money than his own.

    • Yeah, Clare, instead of using your millions spy on judges and to litigate enemies of NXIVM (really just Raniere), why don’t you investigate where the $68 million you gave to VanDouche to “cover his losses” in the commodities market, and the $27 million you funded for real estate development via the guy he chose who now is serving time, went? Do you really think those were losses for you and not gains for him?

  • Dear Insider,

    So well said and as an ex-NXer, I’m so glad you have finally seen through all the BS and are going to leave and rebuild your life. Clare and Keith cannot sue everyone who is leaving now if they all come forward.

    I did speak out about what I found out when I left to try to save those who wanted to listen. I found out about what I believed to unethical behavior by Keith as the founder of the company. He was having sex with many of his students. Yes, they were adults, but they were students, and some were employees of his company. At the time, all but Nancy Salzman who were members of the executive board were sleeping with Keith. This is a huge conflict of interest not only for a company but in regards to promotion within the company. There can be no fair objective standard. I saw people who didn’t have the qualifications get promoted (Sara Bronfman) and others who did never get promoted).

    Keith was also borrowing large sums of money from students (millions – 68 million just from the Bronfmans but there were many others) who were students in his company, another conflict of interest. You don’t do that in business, they are your students.

    Like you, I saw a lot of inconsistency’s throughout my time in NXIVM. When I question why do you teach this but do this, it goes against what you teach? I only found harsh punishment. Not by Clare, she was not yet on the inside like she is now. Her sister was more a power player at that time.

    NXIVM did sue my partner and me after leaving. It’s not as bad as one would think, scary yes but we were so broke that I couldn’t afford a lawyer. I represented us, myself. I did have help (with a couple of people who know the law and others who knew how they sue who helped me everything, they became my advisers) and in 9 months I was free from NXIVM legal battles and the cost as not that much overall.

    NXIVM sent Clare and Jim Del Nigro to testify against me. Big mistake, neither one of them are good on the stand, and when one knows NXIVM’S lies, it’s easy to prove through motions and their testimony in court they are lying.

    NXIVM also had seven high paid lawyers, but I knew NXIVM’s inside baseball game, so it was easy to expose them in court. I was able to get a lot of information into court documents due to their lawsuit against me. The best thing was a Judge finally ruled what their confidentiality means, what it covers and does not cover.

    It only covers their course materials and only when sashes are worn, and the mission statement is read before the class. Other than that, anything else you learn about you can share. NXIVM was attempting to make it mean that if I learn Keith was having sex with multiple women, I couldn’t talk about it. The Judge in my case say, No

    They attempted to sue me over financial damages, but when it came time to turn over their financials in discovery to me, they refused (they don’t want to turn over their books because they haven’t paid taxes in years.) When they ran out of time with the Court to turn them over, the dropped the charges against me, which made the Judge angry as it was half of they 200+ claims against me.

    I know a lot of people are fearful about lawsuits but there are some of us who have paved a path for you and we have knowledge of how to beat them in court now. One thing that has happened is we have gotten dragged into each other lawsuits to be deposed in each of these lawsuits. It’s easy for us to bring lawyers up to speed and to help them to help you win a case.

    It’s been a long time since NXIVM or Keith has had a win in court. We can help you find lawyers who can take you on either pro bono, sue for counterclaims and do it for a percentage of what they can get from a settlement or a team that can help you take NXIVM on your self.

    NXIVM also shot themselves in the foot when they paid a company out of Canada to get financial information on all the setting Judges in all their active cases at the time. This information got leaked out after Kristen Keeffe left NXIVM and made it the the Albany Times Union. All the Judges now know and you can’t tell me that Judges don’t talk to each other. I think they are going to have a hard time in any court system now. This is why I think they are trying to go with law enforcement to try criminal charges.

    With Clare and Keith both on the run, it’s hard to sue from another country. They have to be available to be deposed. To do that, they have to come back to the United States, to do that the authorities can be tipped off to when the deposition is. If they don’t show up for a deposition, the lawsuit will end.

    • Susan Dones left NXIVM after learning about the harem and the conflict of interest it created, and in protest of Raniere’s focus on exploiting the Bronfmans’ billions on legal attacks on his enemies (why didn’t he use the money to promote the ‘mission’ by making ESP free?)

      Susan Dones beat NXIVM’s army of flying monkey lawyers basically by herself. She is correct that their Achilles heel in civil suits is that they don’t dare let their financials be examined. And now that Raniere and apparently also Clare are in Mexico fearing prosecution in the US, she is correct that it is almost impossible for them to sue.

      It is noteworthy that Frank Parlato has not been sued over Frank Report. Mr. Parlato has almost dared Raniere to sue him, knowing that discovery would allow Raniere’s empire to be exposed.

      I am sure that Mr. Parlato’s lawyers would be glad to assist anyone being sued by Raniere or Clare in using discovery to counter-attack them.
