Allison Mack became harem manager for Keith Raniere.

Allison Mack to refuse plea deal; wants to stand with Raniere; cult de-programmer unable to reach brainwashed star

By Frank Parlato

Informed sources tell me that offers of possible plea deals to lure Allison Mack into testifying against Keith Raniere, and sparing herself years in prison if she’s convicted, are falling on deaf ears.

Mack is holding on to her rabid support of her slave master, Raniere, and is said to be prepared to go to trial to prove his innocence. She is a co-defendant with Raniere. Both are charged with sex trafficking, conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, and conspiracy to commit forced labor. They both face from 15 years to life in prison.

Mack’s parents, on the other hand, seem to have shifted from eager supporters of her cult involvement to now wanting to see their daughter move [mentally] away from supporting the cult that blackmails and brands women. Doing so would possibly let her avoid spending the rest of her life in prison.

Allison is said to be reluctantly receiving help –a noted cult de-programmer has been retained by her worried family to try to rescue her from the thralldom of the cult. The results have been nil, sources tell me. Allison is utterly resistant to the suggestion she was brainwashed.

This news runs counter to earlier reports that Allison was receptive to a plea deal. Her attorneys extended speedy trial deadlines, ostensibly to enter into discussions about making a deal and avoiding trial.

To some observers, it appears Allison may have only feigned an interest in making a plea deal to get out of jail, thereby ensuring she did not get undue opposition from DOJ prosecutors during the critical days when her attorneys sought the judge’s approval of a bail package for her. She is currently out on $5 million bond, under home detention and wearing an ankle monitor.

She is, by court order, forbidden to make contact with any member of NXIVM – including her wife – actress Nicki Clyne, whom, I believe, she married in order for Clyne to obtain a “green card” and continue to work in the US for the cult. Clyne is Canadian.

Both Mack and Clyne quit successful TV acting careers to follow Raniere.

  • Parlato is likely correct in assuming that Mack merely feigned interest in a plea deal to get out of jail easier.

    Mack’s television/movie reputation is beyond repairable.

    No television/movie studio or major corporate sponsor would ever hire her again regardless of what decision she makes.

    No company wants to be associated with the mere ‘allegations’ of branding/slaving/abusing women regardless of whether any convictions happen or not (Mack’s reputation is as toxic as Harvey Weinstein). That part of her life is over.

    She’ll be shunned by the entire entertainment industry and corporate world no matter what she does now (burger flipping joints excluded).

    Her only true friends (and income opportunities) are with ESP and it’s financial backers.

    Thus if she made a plea deal and turned against Keith….she’d be shunned by her last remaining friends and financial backers at ESP forever.

    A prison sentence might seem okay to somebody who expects to be rewarded (after prison) for her loyalty of standing by Keith.

    Being a martyr (going down with Keith) may seem more palatable than a future of flipping burgers at a Cali burger joint while living with mom and pop, while lusting after her glory days which will never come again.

    I doubt she’ll accept a plea deal. But I could be wrong. 🙂

    Just can’t wait to hear about Bubba having his way with Keith in state lockup. Maybe Keith can start a DOS harem in prison and make his butthole public property for all inmates. Wonder if he’ll make them starve and shave their pubic hair? 🙂

    • Yes, I see what you are saying. Totally. But couldn’t there be a third way? They way it was supposed to go, i.e. she takes the plea deal, and does some amount of time. Goes quiet for a few years, gets extensive deprogramming and therapy, emerges from this self-created hell like a phoenix, and then tells her story as a means to make amends by steering others away from the same fate, working within a network of perhaps cult survivors or women who do time because of the men in their lives, writes a book and does a documentary about ‘my life in a sex cult’ for HBO (which I know is problematic due to the Son of Sam law however there is not a traditional victim or family to object and take her to court as there would be in a murder case so she can argue First Amendment and that there is value in her telling a cautionary redemptive tale), etc. The rehabbed route, which is not only time tested, with Americans especially often willing to accept a contrite former-whatever back into society AFTER their debt is paid and some period of time has passed, but can also be a career of sorts in itself. Even living in infamy, here I am thinking about someone odd like Mary Kay Letourneau, or Leif Garrett, or Tanya Harding, would have to be better than a 30-year bid in a max security prison. Mike Miliken, junk bonds racketeer from the 80s, literally made this a career. Hell, Michael Alig sawed is friend’s head off and he is walking around Manhattan this minute, and is still known for the Club Kids. This SHOULD be the way it shakes out, and I am sure her parents and lawyers imagined something that looks similar to this scenario in exchange for sending Raniere and whomever else up the river. It might involve some period of time in prison, but if Martha Stewart and Theresa Giudice can get through it, so can this one. Her parents clearly are not without any resources, she has somewhere to go even right now. And she has some relative youth, which can work for her, or against her. For her in that she can still elicit some degree of sympathy, there is someone out there who would find her attractive no matter how repulsive mainstream society may find her because of the cruelty of the cult. Against her, being 35 means that a thirty year sentence is life. Keith has 23 years on her age-wise, he won’t live another thirty years. I mean, he might, and it would be justice, but he also might not live to be 87. Even 15 years for him, best case scenario, puts him out at age 72 or so.

      But after seeing her lie so flagrantly in the Bombard Body Language video, and then all the other videos spouting nonsense, seeing her lack of adult development, her shallow persona, and the clearly strange blog postings during the time spent running DOS where she is writing about being completely adrift emotionally and mentally confused, and so very very immature…that she would throw her entire life away over this mess after being given a chance to still live decades in some semblance of normalcy, wouldn’t be a surprise. It would be shocking, that someone would voluntarily destroy themselves, but maybe not surprising.

      • I think that it’s hard to imagine what a person can amount when s/he return to his/her right mind. Patty Hearst was described as a zombie after her apprehension by authorities. I’ve just been trying to imagine the scope of NXVIM’s impact and the destruction is has wrought on so many lives. Nobody can ever be considered completely innocent, but it’s worth giving some thought to what these folks would have been like had Raniere never crossed their path. It’s even more interesting to see the people that just dismissed NXVIM’s from the outset and never succumbed to his bullshit.

    • See I think it’s the opposite because prior to her arrested Mack was very much so off-grid in terms of acting. But if she were to renounce Keith and take the plea deal she goes to prison, yes, but for a significanty less time that said people will be wanting to hear her story that’s if she ever unclouds her mind. I think she makes a small fortune off her story in book deals and speaking engagements she could maybe even do a documentary. Her brand forever changes to social oddity, “the starlet in the cult” but that in itself sells.

  • Just wanted to chime in one more time. 🙂

    In order for “OrangeCountyDreams” to be correct in his original post (in order for Allison and Keith to both be acquitted)…..her legal team would have to argue that nobody did anything wrong/illegal whatsoever and that DOS is just a harmless social club where no coercion is present to force unwanted sex on anybody. LOL.

    The problem is that if you have an ongoing organization that exists to recruit new slaves for the purpose of sex WHILE holding “blackmail material” to COERCE them into complying with your sexual demands……that’s the very definition of sex trafficking…….because if a slave were truly a consenting adult who has no objections to sex with Keith (a chubby 60 year old geek), then there’d NEVER be a reason to hold “blackmail material” on slaves while threatening to release it (if they don’t comply). LOL.

    They are caught red-handed and anybody who thinks they will be acquitted is really not a very experienced legal professional. LOL.

    So with all due respect to “OrangeCountyDreams” (who claims to be a trial attorney)……he must not be a very experienced trial attorney since everything mentioned here is just basic common sense.

    On a different note…

    For those few people out there who think Allison can be acquitted at trial because the jury will believe she’s a “cult victim” (and not a perpetrator)…..that’s actually not an argument that her legal team will likely make at trial.

    Why?

    Because in order for Allison’s lawyers to argue that she’s a cult victim (at trial), they’d have to directly say that Keith was the perpetrator who inflicted her abuse and made her a victim……which DEFEATS THE ENTIRE PURPOSE of refusing a plea deal with more favorable prison terms (and avoiding a trial altogether, LOL).

    Likewise, she can’t be acquitted due to ‘insanity’ or ‘brainwashing’ either (for the same reason). Her lawyers can’t viably argue that she was ‘brainwashed’ and legally insane (not able to comprehend that her actions were wrong/illegal)……because that would mean arguing that Keith was the perpetrator who is guilty of brainwashing her into this illegal behavior.

    If her lawyers truly intended to argue that Keith was the perpetrator, then they’d advise her to take the plea deal and avoid a trial altogether……since there’s too much evidence against her to risk a 15 year minimum sentence at trial.

    At any rate, both Keith and Allison will come across as kooky & depraved wackjobs to the jury (after all testimony, emails and evidence is presented). I still can’t believe anybody could think the jury will view them favorably after all that.

    For those who don’t like my long posts, LOL, too bad. 🙂

    • These are very good points, thank you. I guess I am just feeling a little pessimistic these days. I hope you are correct and convictions occur. I must make a correction – I am absolutely NOT a trial attorney. I work in a support role in civil litigation, which is worlds away from the criminal justice system. So I am learning a lot here. I am also a female, who met KR in the early 90s. At the time, he had an appealing personality. Watching this escalate over time has been like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

  • The people who think Allison or Keith will prevail in court are almost as delusional as she is.

    With all due respect to “OrangeCountyDreams”…….comparing Allison Mack’s star power to OJ Simpson (or her acting career to Robert Blake’s) is like comparing apples and farts.

    Her star power is not only not A-list (B-list at best), but it’s also been degraded in the court of public opinion in recent weeks…….after her brainwashing and obedience to a chubby 57 year old cult leader has become public knowledge.

    Look fellas… (and ladies)

    She can testify that Keith is innocent ’til the cows come home…..but it won’t sway a jury because her emails show so much fanatical devotion to Keith that she’ll be viewed as a die-hard slave with no ability to hurt her master (or as a person with the credibility of a child). LOL.

    The prosecutor will show those emails where she vows to devote her entire life to Keith forever. How’s a jury gonna react to her credibility after seeing that? LOL.

    Plus other emails where she gives Keith blackmail material on her family to ensure that she’ll never break her vows to her master (and she uses the word “master” in those emails).

    Let’s not forget the email where she signs over legal custody of her unborn children (LOL) and ownership of her property to Keith….if she ever breaks her vow of obedience to her master.

    That makes her testimony worthless (bordering on laughable) if she tries to protect Keith.

    Oh… …and Keith likewise wrote emails which will be shown in court admitting that he’s the mastermind of the DOS sex cult, among other things.

    *Not to mention the ACTUAL female victims who will testify to the jury about their abuse and blackmail material.

    They are caught red handed on that aspect. …Especially since they used existing blackmail material (which may have been given freely) to demand more damning blackmail material every few months afterward, as the government is claiming.

    Plus the other witnesses who the government will also call (they have a dozen witnesses according to what’s been disclosed so far in government documents).

    Not to mention tons of other evidence plus MORE indictments coming next month for both Allison, Keith and other people too presumably.

    Juries aren’t gonna ignore so much direct evidence of women being abused in today’s “#metoo” culture.

    The female victims are gonna be far more sympathetic (to juries) than kooky Allison and her chubby 60 year old cult lover.

    The chances of Keith or Allison being found not guilty are virtually none.

    The only question is which crimes they’ll be convicted of and how much prison time they’ll receive. I’m assuming more charges are forthcoming, as the prosecution said.

    • Agreed. Keith, Alison and those soon to be charged, will appear to a jury as they appear to us: a tragic cult full of weak-minded people in a thrall to something (nxscum) coming from someone (kraniere) – impossible to understand or give any credence to. Imagine those twelve entirely flummoxed people, trying to get their heads round the nxscum perspective. No chance. No through route- Karma well and truly in progress.

    • There are no such charges? You are delusional. The charges on both documents are the same by the way, you sick liar.

      Frank: “She is a co-defendant with Raniere. Both are charged with sex trafficking, conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, and conspiracy to commit forced labor. They both face from 15 years to life in prison.”

  • So much speculation. Don’t buy into everything you read here. he enjoys speculating as much as shadowstate and tex2 do.

    Before 2006, she had no criminal record ( keith did )

    How did he control her and others? Read this from a 12 year insider.

    https://frankreport.com/2017/08/06/12-year-nxivm-veteran-speaks-out/

    It’s a bit like an abused women

    Even Barb Bouchey said in a recent video she believes that Allison was brainwashed into believing what he was doing was right.

    Of course you will get those on here like shadowstate who will claim she is a monster and speculate but I can explain why that is. He pursued her on twitter back in 2016 after attending a few NXIVM sessions and she turned him down. Since then, he has fuelled his hate towards her into blog posts, forums and youtube videos. Even when articles are posted that are not about her he makes comments about her as he can’t stop himself.

    Allison is much like Elizabeth Smart, and the victims of Jim Jones and David Koresh.

    The hearing will prove her innnocence.

    Oh and I think for importance of all the retards who frequent this comment section (aka shadowstate, tex2, brigid ) that you understand what indictment of charges means.

    Read on barry bouches weebsite what indicted means

    Now, because I know you are a little bit slow, I will summarize the best parts below so you can wrap your head around this case

    1. The grand jury knows that the burden of proof is very low, and they also know that the defendant won’t be sentenced or anything.

    2. “Indictment just means the process has moved forward, and the fact of the indictment itself can’t be used against anyone at trial, because it is not allowed to be seen as evidence against them.”

    3. When people turn on the TV and hear that a grand jury indicted someone, they usually have no idea what that means, but it actually means nothing more than the case moved forward; it’s evidence of nothing.

    Evidence of nothing? What did i just read? Yes that’s right. It’s evidence of nothing

    Its simply allegations PRIOR to a trial

    Often it doesn’t go to trial if a plea deal is made

    Okay, now back to Shadowstate and his obsession with Mack, and sultan and his obsession with Kristen Kreuk and Tex2 and his obsession with sheep shagging, amway and guns.

  • Let’s not forget to mention that Her charges are involving Child Trafficking, which MSM is ignoring to report.

    • I think this is an important point. Initially we thought that Alison’s charges of Sex Trafficking and Conspiracy to Commit Sex Trafficking dealt solely with adults. But it looks like the conspiracy charges actually deal with minors.

      Why does this matter?

      Sex Trafficking includes a mandatory minimum of 15 years
      Conspiracy to Commit Sex Trafficking holds no mandatory minimum
      Conspiracy to Commit Sex Trafficking with a Minor includes a mandatory minimum of 10 years

      If the conspiracy charge dealt with adults, the prosecutor could offer her something of a ‘sweetheart deal’: Alison pleads guilty to conspiracy in exchange for her cooperation and the prosecution agrees to recommend a light sentence to the judge.

      But since her conspiracy charge involves minors, it carries a mandatory minimum, and the prosecution can’t provide a sentencing recommendation below 10 years.

      The prosecution only has two charges against her. In order to plea, she has to admit guilt to at least one charge. And, importantly, in order for the conspiracy charge against Keith to stick, they need a co-conspirator. It would be very difficult for the prosecution to prove conspiracy if they used Alison as a witness to conspiracy without charging her with conspiracy.

      Imagine the cross examination:
      “Did you conspire with Keith Raniere to diddle underage girls?”
      “Yes.”
      “Have you plead guilty to this?”
      “No.”
      “Did you plead guilty to a lesser charge in exchange for your agreement to testify today?”
      “Yes.”

      That wouldn’t work.

      TL;DR
      It makes sense she is going to trial because the prosecution couldn’t offer her anything less than 10 years.

    • Anonymous, or should i say Shadowstate?

      They are allegations

      Keith is the one involved in child trafficking

  • Allison Mack is a capable actress. She can & will fool you. The ironic thing here, Mack is not brainwashed. Mack is a very evil person who puts Raniere first for the pleasure it gives her. Raniere does not control her. He does not isolate her and has never feared she would escape his influence. Mack follows Raniere with freewill.

    If she ever claims otherwise, it will be just another performance.

    • I am highly inclined to agree with you.

      Just let me get my popcorn while we wait for Allison’s mother to show up and lay into you. Just look for the “speculation” name.

    • No defense attorney worth their salt would ever have a defendant client take the stand unless they are really convinced their client is innocent. Even then, a defense attorney still may not want an innocent client to take the stand. The reason why is it allows the prosecutors to start asking unanticipated questions, which leads to unpleasant surprises.

      It is possible that Ms. Mack is so convinced of her persuasive acting skills that she imagines she could testify in her own behalf. Reality bites when the prosecutor takes their turn in asking questions. My guess is that her own lawyers won’t allow her to talk to the jury.

      • While the defense attorneys don’t want her talking to the jury, there is no way for them to prevent it.

        And generally speaking Federal prosecutors know a defendant inside and out.

        Why are Trump’s attorneys so reluctant to have Trump talk to Mueller?
        Everyone who has been interviewed by Mueller’s office reports that his attorneys already know all the answers to their questions.

        The same will be true with Raniere and Mack.
        The US already has all of the NXIVM emails and text messages as well as the bank records.

    • This would also apply to any actress who was a part of NXIVM too. I wouldn’t trust any of them. Sarah Edmondson, Kristen Kruek, Nicki Clyne, etc.

      They are professional liars. They are all paid to make people believe their lies on television.

    • You have no idea what she’s thinking or what her motives are. What did I tell you? You can’t know that, and neither can anyone else . Anything you say about her motives is pure assumption.

      You could be right or you could be wrong…BUT the absolute TRUTH is that you don’t know. So, why are you and others commenting as though you have knowledge that you don’t have?

      Your comments are opinion, NOT fact.

  • Question for Mr. Parlato:

    Can you explain what is hidden behind the sealed documents in this case as listed on PACER? A couple of oddities are

    1) Allison Mack was charged in a federal court for apparently driving too fast.
    2) Since when do traffic tickets get get handled by a FEDERAL court? I’ve gotten a couple of traffic tickets and don’t recall ever having a traffic ticket case heard by any court other than a city or county court.
    3) Why are the documents sealed?

    • I had to go to Federal Court for a ticket I got driving on a military base. There are loads of ways to end up there.

      Everyone in the room cheered when my ticket was dismissed because the judge said it was a lovely way to start the day.

    • Ticket can be from speeding on a military base or reservation. If reservation, usually Tribal Police, but not always.

      If documents are sealed, it is because they might contain info that identifies key witnesses or is important to the prosecution. And it is too early to reveal this information early on…

  • I don’t really find this surprising. That was my opinion all along, that she played them to get out. I don’t think she should have ever gotten bail. They only way she would have cut a deal is if they had kept up the pressure.

    If the rumours are true that she and Clare are in contact, then that would definitely keep Mack from cutting a deal.

    I think somebody will cut a deal, but I also believe they don’t need anybody to with the amount of electronic evidence they have.

    • The Feds already have the emails and text messages between NXIVM members, not to mention the bank records.

      Moreover, the Feds would be better served to flip Nancy Salzman who knows about the financial and the sex slave sides of NXIVM.

      • I was under the impression Nancy was tired of it all. I guess she stuck around a while for the $$$.

        Her facebook says she moved to Los Angeles.

      • VanGrifter still has to beat the Tax Evasion charge. How are you 1) a pauper, 2) a renunciate, 3) have no job or income – but yet wind up with $8 Million dollars in your checking account. Oh and yes, it’s a joint account with a dead woman.

        • That’s pretty funny I’d like to see the explanation put forth for that. Was it really a joint account, though, or just in Pam’s name?

    • This plus you have to assume that since this news broke last fall, they’ve had plenty of time to prepare for this all to happen. God only knows how many plans they’ve made during all those months of how they will deal with all of this. It never really made sense that after a few days in prison that she’d be already changed, she was in this thing so deep for so many years.

  • Allison Mack liked to talk about “female empowerment.”

    Well the two Assistant US Attorneys handling her case are Moira Penza and Tanya Haijar.

    I can guarantee you that AUSA Penza and AUSA Haijar are empowered women and I doubt they appreciate a woman who tortures and enslaves women in the name of female empowerment.

  • For the Feds they would be better off trying to flip Nancy Salzman.

    Salzman knows about some of the financial shenanigans at NXIVM as well as the sex slavery silliness.

    And here is the most important part.
    Nancy Salzman wants to protect her daughter Lauren.
    To keep Lauren Salzman out of prison Nancy Salzman would be willing to flip.

  • Mr. Parlato,

    You’re the epitome of hypocracy, just as guilty as those you condemn. I know someone who continues to be dragged through hell with her child because of the desperate evils of this cult crime syndicate. You promised you’d help, then refused once your “informant” told you not to (btw, you sure seem to have an awful lot of inside informants for one who claims clean intensions & isn’t involved or benefiting in any way from NXIVM & co. crimes; the company we keep says much about who we are). She bought into your facade & was convinced you’d at least help expose the unmistakable corruption involved& & help force the hand in getting the highly corrupt authorities in NY (many of whom are abusers & criminals themselves who’ve only obtained such roles of power with this cult network’s dirty money & crimes of fraud) to actually do their jobs so her innocent little girl can be rescued from this sick cult so many other children have also been swept up in (Incl. Gaelen, of whom you continue relaying false info about; he was actually taken in much of the same ways her daughter was & sources have disclosed many undeniable paralells involved.) I’ve personally witnessed the despicable ways this mother’s been refused her most basic constitutional rights each time she’s gone to law enforcement & courts asking them to do what taxpayers are paying them to do. FYI (though Im sure you’re aware of this too but you remain very strategic in what you pick & choose to expose/not expose for reasons doing so is of benefit or detriment to you yourself): NYS, home of NXIVM, is a KNOWN HUB & UNDERGROUND HOTSPOT FOR CHILD TRAFFICKING BECAUSE OF THIS CRIMINAL NETWORK & all those they’ve illegally helped weasel their way into roles of power where they comfortably live out double lives committing such cowardly crimes & helping others do same without any consequences. You keeping so silent on this most critical aspect speaks volumes of who you are& & why you’re doing what you’re doing.So please, please stop the facade. One who is genuine in their efforts would not act as you are. This weekend, keep that mother you refused to help in mind as she spends another mothers day away from her child because of this coward cult and its many beneficiaries. Just so you’re aware, she has many others on her side who are closely monitoring such responses.

    Sincerely,
    Someone Who Cares

    • New York State is a hub for sex trafficking because it is a transportation hub.
      Decades ago, sex traffickers would hang out at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan looking for “fresh meat” from the Midwest.

      Train stations like Pennsylvania and Grand Central also bring potential victims to New York.

      The airports like JFK bring in foreign girls, many from Eastern Europe, Asia or Latin America, all ready to be exploited.

      Because NYC is important in the entertainment industry with Broadway and movie and television production, there is no end of young women who dream of the bright lights and Big City.
      And the fashion industry also attracts young women who want to be models.

      Even honest public servants have a hard time fighting against these predators.

      And Raniere stationed Allison Mack, a well known actress on a program popular with teenagers, in Brooklyn ready to recruit wannabe actresses for Raniere’s sex cult.
      Allison Mack was Raniere’s willing handmaiden in this nefarious endeavor.

    • There r no words to comfort this mom or the all the other moms & dads who have lost children to this type evil.

      I pray that you keep your word to this mom and anyone you have sought help from, there is a time to stay silent and a time to scream! This is the time to scream for all the innocent lives lost to evil

    Now, because I know you are a little bit slow, I will summarize the best parts below so you can wrap your head around this case

    1. The grand jury knows that the burden of proof is very low, and they also know that the defendant won’t be sentenced or anything.

    2. “Indictment just means the process has moved forward, and the fact of the indictment itself can’t be used against anyone at trial, because it is not allowed to be seen as evidence against them.”

    3. When people turn on the TV and hear that a grand jury indicted someone, they usually have no idea what that means, but it actually means nothing more than the case moved forward; it’s evidence of nothing.

    Evidence of nothing? What did i just read? Yes, that’s right. It’s evidence of nothing

    Its simply allegations PRIOR to a trial

    Often it doesn’t go to trial if a plea deal is made

    Okay, now back to Shadowstate and his obsession with Mack, and sultan and his obsession with Kristen Kreuk and Tex2 and his obsession with sheep shagging, amway and guns.

  • More speculation. How would you know this? I call bullshit on this ( Informed sources ) please. More like you want more clickbait material

    • Well, it works. The comments explode when he posts articles about Allison (sometimes into the 100s); the rest are usually below 50 if not lower.

    • If this article is so-called “clickbait”, and if you are a mouse, does this mean you took the cheese?

  • This intransigence on the part of Allison Mack does not surprise to me.

    I recently saw a 9 minute video on Bombard’s Body Language analyzing Allison Mack’s body language in NXIVM recruitment videos.
    Allison Mack is a die hard NXIVM nut case and she will go down with the ship.

    In the back of her mind, she still wants to be Keith Raniere’s wife, even though he prefers 12 year old girls and carries God knows how many venereal diseases.

    This page contains the full 9 minute video and it is well worth watching.
    https://bombardsbodylanguage.com/2018/04/25/body-language-allison-mack-cult-recruitment/

    • And we have all seen your behavior on twitter Shadowstate. If anyone should be thrown in prison, it’s you.

    • “In the back of her mind she still wants to be Keith Raniere’s wife, even though he prefers 12 year old girls and carries God knows how many venereal diseases.”

      Why would Allison Mack want to be Keith Raniere’s wife, when Allison Mack is already “married” to another woman? Wouldn’t that be reverse-inverse-upside-down polygamy?

      • Allison didn’t marry Nicki out love but for her to get her green card and prevent her from being deported from the US. Allison is in love with Keith that she wants to be the only one having his child and having it all. NXIVM members always marry immigrants who have trouble getting a Visa to stay in a country they want to live in for a amount of five -10 years before they divorce later on. Allison doesn’t even like other women very much; she’s often jealous of other women around Keith.

  • Reading these reports have made me feel truely sorry for these women. I thought Allison was an abuser of women but then read an anonymous confession some pages back about how one slave left the cult after an experience in which she was made to wait for Keith for four hours. The account stated that Allison was present and detailed how paranoid/anxious they all were waiting on Keith, they were all afraid to go anywhere for fear of missing their master. It was Allision who was most relieved and enraged when Keith announced he didn’t want to see any of them. That kind of control is powerful and frightening and the shame will probably eat away at her. All these women need to be separated from the source and the Bronfman sisters and put in counseling so hey can heal.

      • I remember that post but I tried to google search this site with “cake” and “laptop” but returned no results with those terms so I don’t know what happened to it. The DOS slave was trying to sell her laptop but they had a surprise meeting with Keith where he was like, four hours late – on purpose i’m sure – and she left anyway to sell the laptop fifteen minutes before he showed up. She also ate a slice of chocolate cake at the cafe she met the buyer at. When the slave returned, Allison was furious because Keith didn’t want to see any of them since one slave left after four hours of waiting. It was a very detailed post about the relationships the women had with each other (tense, secrecy, bulimia, very inauthentic friendships) and their daily lives. She left after that incident and attributed it to actually having calories in her stomach to digest and think about how f’ed up the situation is – Keith’s stupid power plays like that, Allison’s vitriol and blaming her rather than Keith.

    • I agree with this. These women are afraid and have been convinced that Ranierre has the power, both legal and perhaps even metaphysical, to make them suffer. It’s enough to keep doubts in check. It’s a shame Allison hasn’t been able to break free, hopefully it isn’t too late for the others.

  • If Allison doesn’t accept a plea deal and takes the fall for DOS, stating that Keith was innocent and unaware, then do Nicki, India and all the others get go to prison as co-conspirators?

    • But then again there is the email Allie Mack sent to her Vanguard, with pictures of female slaves attached. To which Vanguard replied “All for Me?” So her statement regarding Keith’s innocence is not worth much?

  • Hmm…wonder if this is a ploy by her attorney to secure an insanity plea? That would be one way she could escape jail time. She seemed pretty eager to get out of detention. Does anyone really believe there is a plausible way Raniere walks on this charge? Lots of testimony. Plenty of evidence. And other charges pending as per the judge in the last hearing.

  • The reality of this predicament is that Allison and Keith are going to ultimately skate on these charges. Mark my words.

    • Presumptuous conclusion. You don’t know what evidence the Feds have. This is a high profile case and the Feds have a limited budget to prosecute. They usually go for the low hanging fruit or the slam dunk cases
      Keith will be the Me To Movement poster boy and Allison the ultimate enabler

  • I keep hoping Allison will come to her senses and realize that she has to start making amends to the people she’s hurt and the crimes she’s committed, but this article has me worried that she’s still TeamRaniere. I hope the de-programmer continues to work with her and that she’ll finally see the error of her ways. But if it doesn’t, then she’ll have a long jail sentence to contemplate Keith’s “awesomeness.”

    Very sad indeed.

  • I just want all of you gals out there to know:

    I’m the guy that broke Vanguard’s 100 – yard sprint record.

    As a freshman. Running backwords. With ankle weights.

    Call me?

    • You broke the fake record? Amazing! That must have been really really challenging! Wow! You should be in the Guinness Book of fake records!
      Sure what’s your name and number, I will have someone from craigslist call you ASAP!

      • LOLoooo! And for a $mall Fee, you can take my ULTRAMind IQ test and become one of the $martest people on Planet Earth…Be$ides me, of cour$e.

  • Can’t the argument be made that she’s legally insane? That she’s brainwashed? Not of sound mind to receive counsel?

  • This is unfortunate. Juries are swayed by the celebrity, appearance, and charm of defendants. I think it will be hard for them to convict her and, therefore, maybe Keith as well.

    • She’s currently Z-list and showing no remorse/regret. She’s more likely to sway them because she’s a conventionally attractive white woman.

      • Yeah, Allison may get lucky because she is a white blonde female… would she be Korean or a Cylon or, gods forbid, both, she would already have been thrown out of the airlock.

  • It’s all about what you offer people and what they want. In the real world, the choice between jail and stiffing a sociopath is a no brainer, but the battle here is fought in her mind and soul. Emotions and stories here may have more weight than common sense. Most martyrs cannot be dissuaded from their cause because the promise of paradise and belonging answers all their existential needs. Allison stumbled into this horrid quagmire because she wanted something and the promise of being a martyr gives her that. Nothing is more romantic than to sacrifice for a great cause. She could be at the point where all the sticks in the world amount to nothing. I would speculate that she needs something to run towards…another paradise, another story. Sometimes, we require illusions to correct a course when the thunder, lighting, and the imminent storm do not move us.

    • – . Emotions and stories here may have more weight than common sense.

      This is utter irony coming from a group that purports to teach “Rational” inquiry.

      Which anyone who hasn’t been mind-fucked by this group and has been following this saga for several years can see clearly is just a bunch of bullshit. Rational argumentation adheres to the laws of logic which are effectively immutable. They are “written” into the fundamental reality of an intelligible Universe, i.e., “in the nature of the things”. If the Universe was not intelligible and there was no adequation of the human Intellect to it, then it would be incoherent to speak of reason or rationality. Reason presupposes a why. A why entails an explanation, and an explanation is nothing more than a search for the causes of things, i.e., metaphysics. The opposite of reason, therefore, implies no explanation and hence is irrational, by definition. You might as well assume being can arise from non-being, which is incoherent. There is no explanation for such a thing.

      A sociopath who is nothing more than a common rip-off artist that stole most of his “technology” from an existing HPM industry and graduated with a 2.26 GPA wouldn’t know this, and neither would any of his followers.

          • Lucky at least.

            I know for a fact that she and Allison had both discussed moving to Albany together in 2011 because she had mentioned it in an interview for an article I read long ago. I don’t remember which article it was but I’m sure I read it online. Something prevented her from going and so she never made the move. Unfortunately for Allison, she did.

          • Yeah SoS, a little Kierkegaard, Kant, and Kreuk. Throw in some Kristeva and Kropotkin, what a sexy thought that is, and you’ll be well on your way to earning those ‘hillbilly’ bona fides.

            Seriously, I wish you could get Vangardasil in the dock and force him to answer you in a one on one debate about (ir)rational epistemology. He’d fold like a cheap suit.

      • Flip a couple words in SOS’s post and I could see it delivered to an adoring and clueless Ally Mack.
        Dense Philosophy is like a gun…in the wrong hands it can do harm.

        • There’s nothing word salad about it. It’s actually basic philosophy which underpins all additional philosophy. If one can’t understand this, then one shouldn’t be arguing at all because without minimally accepting this as true, nothing else can be systematically defended.

  • The first step in Deprogramming is realizing that everything Keith said is a lie:

    1) He is not the world’s smartest person and his GPA was 2.26
    2) He was never a State Judo Champion
    3) He never tied the 100-yard dash State Record
    4) He’s not an Ethicist
    5) He’s not an Educator
    6) He’s not a Visionary
    7) He IS a Psychopath

    Allie needs to start from there. Or there has to be some event that cracks the glass and shatters the illusion.

    For Allison Mack, it may come too late – the day of her sentencing.

    • Has to be the day of sentencing. Arrest didn’t do it. Will be downloading your book next week – the day before my holiday so I can read at leisure – this is proving to be a hard marshmallow test – looking forward to it!

          • The book is already at 186 pages. Plus, the trial won’t happen for another year. So, just get it now!!!

            I was almost shaking, when I went back and researched Cults in America. There are so many similarities between Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Keith Raniere. Felt sick to my stomach.

    • I took the trouble to actually watch some of Keith Raniere’s videos.
      His presentations are full of psychobabble and word salads.
      Raniere talks and says absolutely nothing of meaning or value.
      And Allison Mack lapped up his words like a cat lapping up cream.

      I graduated from one of the top state universities in the country.
      I had Professors who graduated from Harvard and Yale.
      Even in high school, I had a History teacher who had graduated from the University of Chicago.
      My teachers gave excellent lectures packed with information.

      From watching Keith Raniere, one can tell that he is not even qualified to teach kindergarten.
      His remarks are inane.
      He is a high school graduate of limited intelligence trying to pass himself off as a great philosopher.
      It’s doubtful that Raniere’s IQ is above room temperature.

      • lol you took the trouble. No, you weren’t you were jerking off watching allison mack. After she turned you down you can’t stop coming back to these articles about her and commenting. Its a place for your anger.

  • What’s the old saying? “Cant fix stupid”

    Seems to be true in this case, brainwashed or not…….. Miss Mack will undoubtedly be spending quite a few years of her life in prison, which is exactly where she belongs.

    I was cautiously holding out hope that she might defect and help right some of the wrongs she has done, but apparently the thrall she is under is too much for her to overcome, even with professional help.

    Another wasted life, ruined by coming into contact with the toxic ‘Vanguard’

  • Sad, just sad. Bronfmans have gotten word to her that her and Keith will be saved in court. Maybe they will; hopefully, they won’t. Clare’s money has always won out. Sure looks like it’s diferent this time around, but you never know. Huge players involved directly and indirectly. We have no idea what deals are being made and money passing around behind the scenes.

    • Fuck the Bronfmans. They’re not even Americans. They’re Canadian. They made their money rooted on bootlegging alcohol (a drug) across the border during prohibition. These shysters need to go the prison.

  • This is sad, but makes sense to me, based on what was factually shared of the proceedings at the court, her responses etc. People had been reading too much in what she didn’t say..

  • That’s the feeling I had also. Allie is still ‘In Love’ with Keith and brainwashed.

    She’s been programmed for 10 years. One month with family is not going to override 10 yrs of NXSCUM indoctrination and brainwashing.

    With enhancements due to number of victims and use of a weapon, she could be sentenced to 35 years.

    Allegedly, there is a video of the branding. If that gets shown to the jury… wow. Game over.

    And Allie finally gets her starring role… smh

    • Yeah. It’s some super strong indoctrination. The only thing that could possibly break it is her recognizing how what Keith has been doing is hurting others and goes against her own values… That would need to happen for her to overcome her own resistance.. No one wants to believe they are brainwashed.. Why would anyone? But, something more important that has not yes been overridden by the indoctrination, it’s possible

  • It looks like ClareBear got to her. A cult member lying to weasel they’re way out of something. I’m so not shocked.

    I hope she refuses a plea bargain, goes to trial, is convicted, and goes to jail.

    • Too much to hope she’d come to her senses. I’m not shocked so much as surprised, what was the avoiding of eye contact and the trial delay about – only her parents sudden change of heart? And what’s that about? scared of losing their home and pension probably. So yes, for her crimes, convict her to the fullest extent.

      • She probably wasn’t avoiding contact as much as was in her own world and didn’t pay attention… If she was really avoiding him, why would she thank his lawyers on the way out? I think we were reading what we wanted to read into the interaction.. But who knows anyway…

        • True…Especially thanking his lawyers. That was only explainable if they were assisting her in some way.

        • Allison was only acting like she turned on Keith. But she really is still under his control. It’s not that simple for a month to turn her around to suddenly turn on him. I like to believe Allison will come around to realize that Keith cares nothing about her but it will be too late for her to realize that fact.

      • Hopefully, if she was in contact with someone from NXIVM, it was tapped and recorded. Then the authorities have something they can take back to the judge as evidence for breaking the conditions of her bail and throw her ass back in jail where she can stay until trial. These people need to learn their lessons the hard way.
