Video: Utah Man fails at courthouse escape; Raniere in court today

It is not clear if Keith Raniere has the opportunity to enjoy the Frank Report any longer, and today he appears in court for an initial status conference on the case against him and Allison Mack, his co defendant.

The last time he appeared, they allowed him the dignity of entering the court unshackled and without handcuffs. He may appear today unfettered as well.

If he were reading the Frank Report, and perhaps somehow he may be, it would be my advice that, despite his self-proclaimed extraordinary athleticism, his speed [he once he said tied the New York State record for the 100 yard dash], and his ability to throw his body and take falls [he claimed he was the Eastern Coast Judo Champion], that he should not try a daring escape.

This security camera footage – posted on the New York Post website – from a Utah courthouse – shows how Chris Rudd, 35, fared when he tried to make a quick getaway at a court appearance.

Of course, Mr. Rudd had neither Keith Raniere’s superhuman abilities nor his mighty powerful brain, and poor Rudd, he was also in handcuffs, when he tried running out of the courtroom, flipping over a second-floor railing and falling with a thud to the ground.

Please don’t try this Vanguard until you watch this short video:

Mr. Rudd broke his leg and pelvis and fractured his skull. He had been arrested on drug allegations and was in the Spanish Fork Utah court for failing to follow through on court-ordered treatment.  He could face additional charges for trying to escape. Police say it’s unclear whether Rudd was trying to injure himself.

Vanguard, who says he is one of the top three problem solvers in the world, is much to smart to be so foolish. That’s how he got to where he is in life.

The Vanguard’s Greatest Gift to Allison Mack

Allison Mack is on the verge of selling out her friends and lovers in order to save her own skin.

Mack’s wife Nicki Clyne is a poor dear sweet loving doe-eyed innocent.
Allison and Nicki are almost doppelgangers.
Kindred spirits brought together by the Love of the Vanguard.
And yet Allison is ready to toss Nicki under the bus to save her own miserable hide.

Mack’s good friend India Oxenberg is a young woman and friend who looked to the older Allison for wisdom and guidance.
And how is Allison Mack prepared to deal with her protege?
By making her walk the plank.
Is that any way for a mentor to treat a protege?

Allison Mack was befriended by Nancy Salzman and her daughter Lauren Salzman.
And how does Allison Mack intend to repay this friendship?
By selling the mother-daughter duo down the river.

The Bronfman sisters Clare and Sara financed the NXIVM organization which for years has provided an identity and community for Allison Mack to belong to.
And how will Allison Mack repay the Bronfman sisters?
With the back of her hand and a kick in the seat of the pants.

And last but not least for years Keith Raniere provided Allison Mack with spiritual guidance.
Keith Raniere shared with Allison Mack his wisdom.
Keith Raniere shared with her his body.
Keith Raniere shared with her his “precious bodily fluids.”
And how does Allison Mack repay the Vanguard’s sharing of these gifts?
With ingratitude.

These betrayals should serve as no surprise.
When it served Allison Mack’s interests she made up false stories about her parents and nephews.

Keith Raniere’s Greatest Gift to Allison Mack is to reveal to her her true nature.
Allison Mack is a Rat!

Once again Shadowstate focuses on Mack instead of Raniere. We all know he was turned down by Allison on Twitter.

I seriously doubt KR has the capabilities of Brother XII, even though he would like everyone to believe he does.

Everybody in the courthouse should be fine, and his potential for escape remain low.

Bilbo running away with his super speed would be a sight to see!

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.
