Will DOJ Investigation Wipe Smiles off Faces of Proctors in Guadalajara? And Other Items

Chino Fregoso (far left)

This is a picture from Chino Fregoso’s Instagram account. Fregoso and [redacted] lead the Guadalajara Center of ESP, along with David Garza.

The picture shows them in their backs, enduro, out in the open field.  They all look pretty happy.

But two days ago, they got news from el Mural, [newspaper published by Alejandro Junco]: The EU investigates a group that marked women as cattle.

Chino Fregoso, [redacted], and David Garza are all NXIVM/ESP Proctors [Orange sashes], which is lower than a Prefect but higher than a Coach.

Coaches [Yellow sashes] include: Luisa Merodio, Carlos Fernando Palacious Orozco, Jesus Sainz, Maria Elizabeth Sierra Valencia, Jorge Aragón Lozano, Alejandra Salazar Lozano, Ana Maria Silva Martinez.

Keith Raniere smiles when he is offered tribute. He is also known by his self-given title Vanguard.

Keith Raniere says, “When we smile the world smiles with us: Each experience of joy is an experience of joy for all people and a victory for humankind.”

A lot of people smiled when the New York Times reported that Mr. Raniere and NXIVM  is under investigation by the US Department of Justice.

Ironically, ESPians, like Farouk Rojas, Omar Boone and others, were quick to share an Aristigui Noticias report: ESP México y Emiliano Salinas se defienden; denuncian a ex colaboradores por extorsión [Emiliano Salinas and Nxivm Mexico counterattack: they accuse detractors of extortion] but no ESPians shared the El Mural story or the New York Times’ story: Federal Officials Reportedly Investigating Group Where Women Were Branded.

Indeed, Aristigui has a page of links to their stories dedicated to NXIVM. This, too, is not being shared among ESPians who seem to limit sharing and reviewing data.

Emiliano Salinas [Green shirt] appears to smile as he and others offer tribute to Keith Raniere during Vanguard Week [which is actually 10 days].
Nancy Salzman used to smile in most photos. It is unclear how much smiling she is doing now.

Keith does not seem to be smiling very much these days.



Keith Raniere: “Additionally, I feel it is important to clarify the sorority is not part of NXIVM and that I am not associated with the group.” [From his Letter from the Co-founder.]


Rat Vanguard.
Keith Raniere visits Mexico for the first time.


Dr. Danielle Roberts brands women with Keith Raniere’s initials.

She tells 20/20.

Kristin Snyder used to smile a lot before she joined NXIVM.

She disappeared in February 2003. Her body was never found.  She reportedly admitted she might be pregnant with Keith Raniere’s child just before she disappeared. Although her body was never found, her disappearance was ruled a suicide under very suspicious circumstances.

Authorities said she drove four hours from her home and stole a kayak and paddled out on an ice cold Alaskan bay and drowned herself on purpose.

At the time of her disappearance, Raniere was pretending he was a Buddha like monk and just reeling in the Bronfman sisters and their money.

He never admitted he had sex with Kristin and told the gullible Bronfman Brats, Clare and Sara, that he was certain Kristin Snyder ran off and faked her own suicide. Clare Bronfman has spent more than half a million dollars trying to find Kristin Snyder.

This is a cold case waiting to be reopened.

Some people won’t smile if that ever happens. Just ask Ed Kinum, [Name Redacted] or Esther Chiappone Carlson.

  • I actually think they may smile bigger when the DOJ finds crimes and some arrests are made. The bigger the smile, the more the ESPIANS are trying to look like they’re doing great.! In the meantime surely a number of them are actually suspicious of the Vanguard for running away? It can not be legitimately describe any other way but as a cowardly act no?

  • The difference in the before and after shoot of the I’m going to lose my medical license Danielle Roberts is amazing. Guess she’s going to have to move South of the Border and open a client down there where they are less caring about medical malpractice or just teach yoga.
    Maybe she could turn States evidence and get her life back.

  • In the picture where Emily and the others are dancing, the colors of their shirts shows their rank. Green, Sr. Projector, Orange, Proctor, Yellow is for coach.
