Frank Report prepared to pay Park Dietz to do mental health evaluation of Raniere

Keith Raniere is the Vanguard, the most ethical teacher to his followers. They never stop to wonder if there is another more personal side to Mr, Raniere.

Happy Christmas.

Since NXIVM is paying Dr. Park Dietz to do a mental health evaluation of India Oxenberg, I would like to make an equally kind gesture of paying him to do a mental health evaluation of Keith Raniere.

India, if you are reading this, would you kindly ask Keith and Dr. Dietz to set up a convenient time?

Dr. Dietz is the right man for the task.  He has made a study of narcissists and psychopaths during his long career evaluating criminals.

Let’s look at some of his comments on the topic.

Dr. Dietz:  When people have a sufficient degree of charisma, they discover fairly early that they have the ability to influence other people. I’ve come to regard charm and charisma as warning signs…”

Dr. Dietz: “Women should be particularly cautious – there’s a lot of sex appeal in charm. The problem is that it comes with a lot of things that women aren’t looking for, like violence and deception.”

Dr. Dietz: “If you were to look across a broad range of people who’ve done terrible things, the two things that you’d find most prevalent would be this trait of psychopathy and the trait of narcissism. These are personality attributes that allow one to either function without consciences with minimal concern for one’s impact on others. It’s very hard to do destructive things to other people if one has a conscience – or a high degree of empathy.”

Dr. Dietz: “Certainly, all sexual sadists thrive on the creation of terror for their victims. That’s the primary motive.”

Dr. Dietz listed the characteristics of a narcissist as someone “with a swollen ego” and a “sense of grandiosity.”

Such a person is “thin-skinned” and “hyper-sensitive” to how they’re perceived by others, and Dr. Dietz said, “…they’re often consumed by envy”.

Gina Hutchinson met Keith Raniere. She died under mysterious circumstances.
As a child, Rhiannon was raped repeatedly by Keith Raniere.
Here is the police report Rhiannon signed. Note that she said she had “sexual intercourse with a man named Keith Raniere. This occurred when I was approximately 12-13 years old and occurred either at Keith’s townhouse at 3 Flintlock Lanes, Clifton NY or his business located at Rome Plaza Clifton Park, NY”
Keith Raniere says he has had people killed.
A cold case that begs to be re-opened: Kristin Snyder disappeared shortly after saying she might be pregnant with Keith Raniere’s child. Her body was never found.

Dr. Dietz: Narcissists and psychopaths are “exploitative of others– they use people to meet their own needs,” and “feel a sense of entitlement. . . . ‘The world owes me respect, money and fame.’ They require constant attention and admiration from others, and they lack empathy.”

When Barbara Bouchey left Keith Raniere, he attacked her with multiple lawsuits, had a criminal complaint filed against her for computer trespassing , and, according to one witness, tried to lure her to Mexico where she would be falsely imprisoned.

“Losing one’s [lover] is the ultimate criticism for any narcissist,” Dr. Dietz said.


A 30 year old Keith Raniere raped a 12 year old girl, she claims, about 60 times. She was terrorized of him and ran away.

Dr. Dietz: Most adults don’t find the infliction of pain or trauma on a victim erotically arousing. Likewise, while most adolescent boys enjoy scaring girls– or the kinds of provocative pranks that would cause someone to shriek– most adults no longer find it entertaining.”

Keith Raniere bio: “He has the unique ability to relate to virtually anyone, and is known by his friends as a prankster extraordinaire.”

Dr. Dietz: “Some people have a lifelong desire to terrorize others, to cause fear, to intimidate them, and they do it for a variety of reasons. Probably the most common reason is that they learn that this is a way to influence people and have a degree of power, by intimidating them.”

Sarah Edmondson describing the pain of branding: “Imagine someone taking a lit match to your crotch and drawing a line with it.”

“We were weeping. It was like something out of a horror movie. We were shaking. The woman on the table was squealing like a pig. She was squealing like an animal being branded.”

Keith Raniere text message: “Not initially intended as my initials but they rearranged it slightly for tribute, (“if it were abraham lincolns or bill gates initials no one would care.)”

The hot iron burns initials and leaves a lasting scar.

Raniere said DOS “…gives women tools to be powerful, to regain their power for the sake of building love” according to one DOS member.

It is lamentable that Dr. Dietz was not retained by NXIVM to do a psychiatric evaluation of Keith Raniere. But it can be corrected.

Frank Report cordially requests Dr. Dietz to name his fee and, if it is not unreasonable, I will retain him to evaluate Keith Raniere.

It will be my Christmas gift to Expians, ESPians, and Keith as well.

This sick man is in need of mental health treatment – and the sooner the better.

“Losing one’s [lover] is the ultimate criticism for any narcissist,” Dr. Dietz said

I never could understand why he couldn’t just let the Toni and Barbaras just leave. He made up the lies like the saving the world and his energy BS, but up until now, I couldn’t understand the real reason why he wouldn’t just let them leave.

I agree This is quite a decent offer Frank. I hope that Keith does consent and allow the results to be published just like he is going to do with the sorority he knows nothing about. His honesty is very compelling.

Just like you don’t need a Picasso to analyze what is an obvious finger painting, you don’t need a world known psychiatrist to diagnose an obvious sex-addicted conman.

TY Frank, that is a very generous offer. And an appropriate solution

What he will find out will neither be interesting nor worth the money. Their methods are not proven and cannot withstand scientific methods after all. Their ‘theorems’ do not allow for experiments that can falsify them. So why would you spend so much money on pseudo science? Invite your special one to a good dinner and you get something out of it.

You have to be at a certain level of stupid, mixed with equal parts childishly curious, naivety, leftist, and a strong desire to virtue signal, to find this maniac charming.

The Judge offered. Pretty succinct evaluation. Good job.

ESP ripped off Ayn Rand-ian Objectivist pseudo-libertarianism. So “leftist” is a stretch. They do claim to be the salvation of “human-kind,” but they definitely expect “human-kind” to pay them for the “salvation.”

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

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.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
