New name proposed for Raniere… “Vanguard’ may be obsolete

Volleyball does not figure into Keith Raniere's future.

If Keith Raniere is not going to live in the USA any more, [to avoid federal jurisdiction and prosecution], then he may need to change his name. Not the name Keith Raniere – but his self-awarded exalted title of “Vanguard”.

A source said the name “Vanguard” is too obscure even for those who speak English.

Others, say Spanish speaking folks, new ones who are needed to replace those who have fled NXIVM, find it hard to relate to such a lofty word as Vanguard.

There is a rumor that there is talk of changing his name from Vanguard to “El Glorioso.”

The Glorious One.

What about Clare Bronfman? In the past, the name Legatus was suggested.

A source suggested the name “La Lechera.” The Milkmaid.

But, sadly for her, her role with Raniere is much more akin to the cow than the milker of the cow.

Someone else said Vaca De Efectivo – or The Cash Cow. That definitely makes sense!

The hilarious part about this is that his followers don’t know that he actually got that name VANGUARD from an Atari game he used to play. Now don’t they feel like idiots.

Sounds impressive, doesn’t it?

Maybe he was the first to leave the US to Mexico and maybe he will be the first to be extradited. Who knows… Maybe he is a psychic and could see the future. In the end he is the smartest man in the world and has and IQ of 300.

I’m willing to part with mine since it is the best and most apt.

Could we get the Spanish translation on that, VanDouche? What is Chicken shit in Spanish?

I believe combarde or coward would be the correct term as chicken shit translates to mierda de pollo (mierda = shit and pollo = chicken)

“El Glorioso.”

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.
