By Nostradamus [a fictitious name].
All might seem quiet south of the border but it’s not. There are many devious plans afoot. Some predictions:
With too much heat in the US, many events, intensives and gatherings will likely be held in Mexico where The Vanguard and his goons can avail themselves of security guards with machine guns. “A vow of non-violence,” you say? Don’t worry. There will be some form of word-salad to explain away how, when violence is this or that, it’s actually non-violence.
Next. The Vanguard and Cruella de Albany will be a little cautious about new in person terrorism by litigation against the enemies as it will be an additional PR nightmare. Then again… their stupidity is unstoppable.
Don’t worry! There are other ways. Friends and acquaintances of those who have left will initiate (lobbied) law enforcement complaints or lawsuits against the leavers. The flying monkeys won’t know exactly why they are suing the leavers, but they’ll be given a plausible enough reason and they will run with it, afraid to ask any questions and desperate to please their seniors. This will be a very, very, very stupid and gullible thing to do, but they will do it. Sort of like the Mexican couple (Alejandro and Emiliano) did in Mexico. By threatening Mexican and US citizens to shut up or else.
The Vanguard will be spinning more elaborate tales about death threats and high level conspiracies against him and the followers will gasp even more. They will likely pour even more resources into his ‘defense’ fund.
If The Vanguard does get arrested, he will be spun as a MLK or Gandhi. Because only great men get imprisoned right? (I’ll just let that non-sequitur hang there…)
Speaking of NXIVM slush/tribute funds. Whatever happened to the Vanguard Library?
You’ll Didn’t know there was a Vanguard Library? Here is a post about it from SID blog
*Vanguard’s Birthday Gift August 26, 2010
Four years ago, Prefect asked Vanguard what he would like for his birthday gift from the organization, to which he responded he would like for us to be joyful! Yet through our experience of Vanguard’s technology most of us have come to realize this gift–the gift of joy–is undeniably not a gift from us to him, but rather a gift from him to us.
In keeping with our birthday gift tradition, we’d like to offer him our interdependent contribution to his executive library. We would again like to present him with a check on the eve of his birthday that is representative of the sum of monies we have, as an organization, contributed to this library. With these gifts, Vanguard has been able to build a collection of books, media and other resources he uses to further his research and endeavors. If you would like to give him your gift, we encourage you to do so when you register for Vweek or bring your credit card, cash or check to the V-Week registration desk at Silver Bay. If you are not attending V-Week, you may write to email@example.com with payment instructions. (If we receive your email by 2:00 p.m. EST on August 26, we can include you in the “checkbook.”)
Additionally, visit our executive library booth in the registration area for “Vanguard’s Birthday Tribute.” Contribute to this gift by writing something personal to Vanguard about what he means or symbolizes to you, and how he has personally touched or affected you in your life.
The difference between Keith and the other ‘martyrs’ is that his imprisonment will be due to the harm he, as ‘Vanguard’, has brought to his followers – particularly women – he has left behind him a growing group of victims who are speaking out – albeit mostly anonymously atm – and the information reveals his sick pathology, not enlightenment.
