Frank Report recently posted a copy of a letter that Nancy Salzman, President of NXIVM, has asked members of the cult to sign and send to the federal authorities who are prosecuting NXIVM’s founder and current Federal Prisoner #57005-177, Keith Alan Raniere a/k/a Vanguard. In response, one of Frank Report’s intrepid readers has drafted a second letter for the branded members of DOS to sign and send to U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard Donoghue.


Dear Mr. Donoghue:
I recently became aware that you have brought charges against my beloved mentor Keith Raniere and that you intend to prosecute him for, among other things, sex trafficking. As a result, I decided to write to you and personally beg you to let my Vanguard go.

While it is true that I really never liked the idea of giving Vanguard all those raunchy pictures of me or transferring my house and my life savings to him, I truly believed that if I just took enough NXIVM courses, I would eventually earn millions of dollars, I mean, after all, the program is named Executive Success Programs, right? Did you even know that?

And while I wasn’t really crazy about getting my pussy branded with Vanguard’s initials, I did get quite a kick out of holding down all those other women, so they too could be branded. And after a while, I even got used to the smell of burning flesh. Well, sort of…

Also, since you arrested Vanguard, I’ve been so worried about him that it’s been very hard for me to stay on my diet. Please don’t let him know but I’ve actually gained 3 ounces in the past week.

I really don’t understand why you’re not like all the other law enforcement officials who let Vanguard do whatever he wanted for the past 20 years. Are you some sort of suppressive or, worse yet, a Luciferian?

If you would just take a couple of our 16-day intensives, I think you’d begin to see our point of view. And if that’s enough to convince you to let Vanguard go, I’m sure that Clare and Sara can figure out some way to incentivize you to do the right thing. I mean, after all, you make less than $200,000 a year, right? Did you know Vanguard spends that much every year on vegetarian pizza?

  • Note To Trash: If you don’t like what’s posted here, go read some other blog. As for me and many of the others who read Frank Report, we love the idea of mocking Nancy Salzman’s absurd attempt to drum up support for “Rearguard” formerly-known-as “Vanguard.” Hopefully, lots of members of NXIVM will respond to Salzman’s loony-tunes request and include their return addresses on their letters-of-support. That will make it that much easier for the Feds to track them down too

  • Very weird that Dr Danielle Roberts hasn’t been mentioned in a while, considering that she was the one that was conducting the actual branding on the slaves. Frank hasn’t mentioned her in quite some time.

    Also, if you’re gonna hold Kristen accountable what about the men that led SOP? SOP was a huge component of their MLM and people profited greatly from it. They left once shit hit the news but there has been zero focus on them. Kristen, who hasn’t been involved in years and likely made no $, is being attacked yet the men who made hundreds of thousands from enrolling sop members get no mention.

    • Kev, You’re surprised that, after making a public statement on the matter, there’s focus on Kristin Kreuk? When Kreuk is the biggest celebrity coach NXIVM has ever had? Your surprise is naive. Celebrity is an unfortunate but huge force in this world.

      The attention will pass as the news cycle moves on to something new. No doubt Kreuk is grateful she left 5 years ago; fallout will be far less for her than for those who remained. And, after 7-8 years with NXIVM, and achieving coach status, and at minimum yellow sash three stripe status, Kreuk herself is certainly not surprised by the attention.

      • Who said anything about being surprised? I get that her celebrity status makes her a good target to generate clicks. That’s not what I was talking about though…

    • Yeah, Kreuk and Allison were so successful in turning around the marketing and image of NXIVM, they hired Frank Parlato for a $1 million dollars AFTER they were already in the organization as a publicist to continue to help them improve it.

      There’s no new information in this article about Kristin’s involvement in NXIVM and her departure. She just gets more click bait hits when she she is mentioned and is being used in self-serving manner to continue to tie her to something she had nothing to do with.

  • Not to pile on, but these kinds of posts really do damage the site’s credibility, especially since there is no outward indication that this is satire. Having joke posts in the middle of hard-hitting, deadly serious posts is just confusing to the reader. Especially ones like us, who are waiting to baited breath to see the next development in a story that has hit us very personally.

    And, if I can share an opinion, it just isn’t that funny, either.

    • You’re astonishingly rude and pathologically egocentric. Your parents failed you, and for that you have my compassion.

      You think Frank cares about an internet troll? He’s been pursuing justice for years, dealing with garbage far worse than you.

      This is Frank’s sandbox and it’s his to manage as he sees fit. And considering that he scooped the world on this sex-trafficking money-laundering sex cult and that justice will finally be served in part from his actions, gratitude is far more appropriate than garbage troll behavior.

      • Well said. Mad respect to Frank for standing up to these crazed cultists and their bullying tactics. Takes an enormous amount of courage. Frank is well aware of how these people operate. If he wants to laugh at them every now and then, he’s more than entitled to. And there is a lot to laugh about with these loons, starting with “Vanguard”. How ludicrous is it that he was called Vanguard? Just hope more of the fools involved with this cult see the light and begin spilling the beans on Vanguard. I’m certain there is a lot of craziness we don’t know about. Maybe when some of his starved concubines put on a few pounds they’ll see the light.
