Coaches Summit begun at Apropos

At peak,  there were as many as 55-60 cars at Apropos.
At the same time, the NXIVM/ESP offices 455 New Karner Road were shut down.
The back lot is larger and appeared full with about 30 cars parked there. The front lot holds about 15 cars and was mostly full today.
Here are some photos:

  • Respect to the photographer on these shots, brave work and you came back successful after being in the right place at the right time. Extra risky if you were in the car park on private property.

  • 5 reasons why Allison Mack is not smiling:

    1) The love of her life is in Mexico with his baby mama.
    2) She has been listening to Nicki Clyne’s stand up routine.
    3) The pants she is wearing went out of style long before she was born.
    4) The fans who thought she was so adorkable as Chloe in Smallville have abandoned her.
    5) The local Walgreens and CVS have run out of Valtrex.

    • Ms. Mack went from being in one clique of privilege – the “cult” of celebrity – to recruiting sex slaves for another clique of privilege – a real life cult led by a narcissist. She seriously downgraded. She went from fake smiling for TV and magazines, to fake smiling when she’s in Instagram group pictures with her fellow followers. This picture must have caught her by surprise so she couldn’t fake how joyous she was coming out of Apropos. It’s actually ironic.

    • It would be pathetically sad if the former Chloe Sullivan thinks the huckster of a “spiritual” guru who runs this cult and who statutorily raped a number of minors – one as young as twelve – is the “love of her life”.

  • Whoever took these photos, nice shots. Up close and personal. I’m amazed the police didn’t get called that they felt their lives were endangered from shutter bug disorder.

    Noticing no sightings of the chickens Vanguard, Prefect or Clare Bronfman. No showing of Lauren Slazman either.

    If it was like after the nine women left in 2009, there must of been a grand lecturer about how the latest defectors have all been lying to the press and they are just after money. Blah Blah Blah. Sad thing is the mindless sheep will nod their heads in a yes direction and believe them.

    If it’s a repeat of 2009 and no one from NXIVM is held accountable for their criminal activities, after a cooling off period Keith will come back to Albany and start his reindeer games up once more taking it one more step over the line.

    More civil suits will be filed against defectors and the lady justice will put on one more blindfold.

    People keep saying the FEDs are going to step in, don’t hold your breath, he is the Vanguard and he’s gotten away with a lot for many years. I will believe it only when I see it.

  • You’ve got tp figure that most of the remaining coaches are Mexican. There is no way there are 50 US coaches left. Does it make any sense at all to make them all fly up from Mexico to Smallbany to show solidarity while their worm-faced Vanguard sunbathes in their back yard? Why not do coach summit in Mexico? Bloody stupid planning and completely ridiculous. How much do they pay per coach tp participate? $400 a pop? They must be desperate to keep sucking their members of their last pennies. Maybe for a prison fund? What the hell are they coaching? How to lie when the Feds come crashing down on them? MOVE ON! #getalife

    • If a four-stripe student is close or expected to be promoted to the rank of coach (yellow), they could be invited to a Coach Summit to participate and be promoted during the course of the summit. That could be a possibility.

  • When these people wake up from their foolish stupor – when they wake up after they die – they will realize what fools they were for following this man.

    Of course the charlatan is going to “teach” what most people think is good, ideas that have been known from religions for centuries where they were lifted from. After all, it is easier to catch flies with honey rather than vinegar. It is the other 10-20% – the MLM, the control, the manipulation, the sex, the under the table transactions, the litigation, the stalking, the branding, the brainwashing, the harassment, etc. – that reveals an insincere black heart of “dead” man walking that no doubt sullies the whole endeavor.

    Every falsehood has its limited time until The Truth crushes it.
