Raniere new reply shows startling contradiction regarding ‘significant other’ Pam Cafritz

The late Pam Cafritz died in Nov. 2016.

By Frank Parlato

The latest filing by the Raniere defense team is a three page document of lies and damn lies.  The defense’s language below is in plain text and my responses follow

Raniere lawyers: To highlight the stated strength of their case, the Government cherry-picked communications between Raniere and someone very close to him.

Frank Report: The defense is referring to the The fuck-toy slave texts.

Raniere Lawyers: These are (i) out of context and (ii) relate specifically to the long-term relationship between Raniere and this person at that particular time.

Frank Report: That’s an oxymoron. The defense speaks of a ‘long term relationship at this particular [moment in] time.” How long term are we talking about?  More significantly, the texts were sent during October 2015. His so-called ‘significant other’, Pam Cafritz, was still alive. Raniere’s defense, in their original bail motion, page 13, wrote: “Raniere stayed in Albany until November 10, 2017, to be at his former partner’s home [Cafritz] on November 7, 2017, the one year anniversary of her passing.” This means she died on Nov, 7, 2016. So, while his former partner was suffering from cancer, he was texting his newest “long term relationship”.  This suggests he was not mourning his ‘significant other’ as much as the Raniere lawyers would like us to believe.  One year before Cafritz’s death, he is making plans with this new ‘long term relationship at the time” for her to be number one and stand naked with Allison Mack and five other naked women.

Raniere Lawyers: As will be shown at trial, these communications are not evidence of sex trafficking or any other crime. Additionally, these communications do not negate representations in Raniere’s Bail Motion that Government faces weaknesses in their evidence. Indeed, the Government’s discovery supports Raniere’s claim that DOS is a group by and for women, dedicated to female empowerment.

Frank: The text exchanges between Raniere and the women he is asking to stand naked with other slaves – and get branded with his monogram – show this is not a woman’s group, but Raniere’s sex-slave and fuck-toy club.

Here are the texts again – just for readers to see how totally untrue the Raniere defense team’s arguments are:

Oct. 1

RANIERE: I think it would be good for you to own a fuck toy slave for me, that you could groom, and use as a tool, to pleasure me…
[DOS Slave]: huh?
[DOS Slave]: not disagreeing, just don’t understand
RANIERE: But your [sic] my wife…she isn’t…just a tool for you to use for me…
[DOS Slave]: a person?
RANIERE: Get a slave… you’re her master…

October 9, 2015,

RANIERE: Without going into detail. It caused there to be other slaves, all who want to be branded with my monogram plus a number [on the brand] … your number is reserved… it is number 1.  It is now a secret growing organization. I don’t know well some of the people involved but I command them ultimately. They are not who you might think. . . I think there are 10 or more in the current Jness 2 track…and others outside of it.

[DOS Slave]: Does that mean that they know about each other?

* * *
[DOS Slave]: I’m ok with you having other slaves, I assume that these are not sexual

RANIERE: They may or may not be. They would be if I commanded but that is not the reason for the organization

* * *
RANIERE: It is an absolutely trusted commitment…
[DOS Slave]: I want to be the one that worships your body
RANIERE:  Many will not even know of my existence…some don’t already….

October 10, 2015:

RANIERE: Find a life slave and I’ll tell you everything…
[DOS Slave]: What do you mean by life slave?
RANIERE:  Someone who has a collateralized vow with you for life…

October 11, 2015

RANIERE: I feel badly each time you have to work hard for me to [orgasm]… I thought slaves could remove the burden…and I could get you fresh and not worn

RANIERE: What are your thoughts feelings?
RANIERE: All of them have slaves in process… some have several completed…
[DOS Slave]: I feel insecure but at the same time I feel proud of you. You are worthy of following like that
RANIERE:  So are you… you’re number one…
[DOS Slave]: I would be proud to stand next to you
RANIERE: Even naked with 6 other committed naked women?

October 16, 2015:

[DOS Slave]: Are these slaves for you or for us?
RANIERE: There are two types. Both types are for us. One type is in the program: you are their Master I am their Grand Master . . . the other type are very select ones you use to heal us: likely being also of the first type…
[DOS Slave]: Ok. I’m asking because these persons will be in our life forever…. But I was not involved in the process of choosing who
[DOS Slave]: I’m afraid that I will not be comfortable with the others
RANIERE: You choose your slaves…
[DOS Slave]: What about the 7.
[DOS Slave]: ?
[DOS Slave]: Allison [Mack] said these 7 were forever. She and the others will be forever in my life…
RANIERE: They are first line to me but if any suit the purpose I obviously have access…

* * *
RANIERE: [H]aving one or two young slaves devoted to revving my body sexual to produce more energy would help. It would be there [sic] 24/7 job…

  • All of us, we human beings, have our own unique ways and means for revving our body-sexual to produce more energy. Our grandmaster’s way of doing this was to have one or two nubile sex slaves on call for 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Of course, this sexual revving was carried out on a two-week rotating basis with some down time as a reward for the satisfactory sexual pleasuring and revving of the grandmaster. The master of the slaves, aka #1, was in charge of managing the quotidian details of the DOS slavery operation. Her professional title was and is ‘Procuress.’ Along with Vancad (Keith) and Defect (Nancy), Procuress is the only other entitled member of NXIVM or DOS (Dominus Obsequentium Sororium is the correct Latin).

    Even a slave woman has to have some time off to work on maintaining her rail-thin physique. She needs all her strength to fight off the baby bunnies from eating up all of her rabbit food. Those young bunnies are amazing, frisky, little cuties. Personally, however, I think that I shall stick to Dalmatian puppies for all of my fur wants and needs. I get so many second looks, admiring glances, and outright stares – It’s so thrilling to be noticed in my full-length Dally fur coat with matching Dally hat and hand-warmer! My older sister, Iggie-pooh, gets so jealous of me; it’s glorious! Do you think that I have a case of arrested development? Iggie-pooh does, but she has arrested development too. So, if your development is arrested can you be charged and sent to jail, like Keith was? I was really furious when Vancad first got arrested but then I hired a lawyer, that I met at Denny’s, real fast. Like a NYC second fast! I’m feeling a little tired right now, so, don’t tell Vancad that I am going to take a nap or that I am drinking lots of Fiji water: it goes so well with sautéed baby bunny. A tough broad like me has to keep up her strength during such trying times as these. Poor me (well, not financially poor), but self-pityingly poor. More’s the pity, more’s the pity! Woebegone, I need an EM-enema; I’m calling Defect, I mean Nancy, right now! Hypnosis works wonders, especially with my trust fund. NLP anyone?

    Please remember that it was extremely important for Vancad to produce more energy by these woman-empowering means because more energy means more joy for him! And you know what that means. Say it in unison on three: “He who has the most joy wins!” Thank you, Vancad! But between you and me, I don’t think that Keith is as smart as some folks say he is. After all, he’s stuck in a jail without bail. Anyhow girls and boys, don’t forget, whoever ends up with the most f**k toys wins! THE HIGHEST JOY IS OWNING YOUR OWN SLAVE F**K TOY! Yup, a real live human female!

  • Your honor,

    The government has incorrectly characterized rain as traveling downward and the sky as being blue, which the defense will prove is not true at trial.

    The defense has several high profile scientists, including a Princeton graduate, who will demonstrate that rain actually travels upward…..but that most people perceive it to be traveling downward due to seeing things “out of context”.

    Furthermore, the defense has several scientists, including a former NASA scientist, who will prove that the sky is not blue at all and is actually green with pink polka-dots……but most people’s brains are taking this “out of context” and perceiving it as blue.

    Respectfully submitted,
    John Q Asshole, Esq.

  • No team of prosecutors are going to show all their cards before a trial. So what’s wrong with a cherry picking some of the bad crap that was being pulled to show the judge a tidbit of information of what these idiot is capable of?

    • They have to show their bag of tricks before trial in Discovery. Against the rules to blindside defence counsel.

        • Only what the defence has asked for. 🙂

          I mean, there is so much to sort through… It may be September before they get it all to them.

      • Only raw data is subject to ‘Discovery’, no? and even then isn’t it a two way thing these days? So, not just the prosecution who must not ‘blindside”. The actual theories and strategies that comprise the work either side do is not part of Discovery. this would be a huge disincentive to the overall process. Also if the defence position is relying 100% on Discovery for its strength, they clearly have a very fragile case. Which is after all – the truth of the matter.

  • Keep in mind that Jane Doe #1 and #2 also backup everything said about Keith being the “Grandmaster” of the sex slaves.

    …And I’m assuming the government has many other witnesses and text messages too, since a bail hearing is not a discovery process.

    It looks like the defense may be trying to force the government into a “mini trial” at this bail hearing (as the prosecutor claimed already)….in order to draw out as much “discovery” material/evidence as possible. I hope the judge shuts it down fast.

  • They are trying to claim this one text negates all the other messages about fuck toys.

    “RANIERE: They may or may not be. They would be if I commanded but that is not the reason for the organization.”

    Slavery is empowerment in true NXIVM fashion.

    • Yes, they are trying that.

      But the problem with their argument is two fold…

      1) He directly said that they ‘may’ be his sex slaves (the ‘may not’ disclaimer is meaningless….since it would only have meaning if he outright said he’ll never have sex with these girls because he needs them for some other legit purpose).

      2) He admitted that he has the power to “command” these slaves to have sex with him if he wishes. He also said that he “may or may not” be doing precisely that (the “may” portion is what seals his fate, as it shows the jury that his intentions are to have sex with any woman he deems pretty enough, even though he may not necessarily fuck every single one).

      This also tells the jury that the organization has no other purpose……since no legit organization can have a male Grandmaster with the authority to “command” women slaves to have sex with him if he deems them pretty enough.

      Here’s how the jury will see that line as a whole…

      The woman is asking Keith for reassurance that he won’t fuck any of the slaves because she wants to be the one to worship him sexually (she’s telling him she’s jealous of other slaves fucking him and replacing her)……..so he placates her a little bit by saying that he “may or may not” have sex with them. He further placates her jealousy by saying that sex is “not the reason for the organization” (he’s implying that it’s a legit organization with some other noble purpose besides sex). Yet he never specifies what the ‘reason’ is to her (which he would have done had there been a legit reason other than sex…..since it would have helped to placate her jealousy even better IF he’d given her a legit reason for the organization).

      • I’m surprised they haven’t invoked Gandhi yet given that we’ve already seen the Dalai Lama ‘recognition’ and the Jesus comparisons made by his followers.

        You see, Yer Honer, he is just sleeping naked with them without any sexual contact like Gandhi did with his women to prove his purity, yeah, that’s the ticket…

      • these are private conversations the prosecution has invaded without Raniere’s permsision.

        So, it’s not fair. He wouldn’t have said those things if he knew a federal prosecutor would be reading them later.



        • The definition of entrapment from Wiki

          In criminal law, entrapment is a practice whereby a law enforcement agent induces a person to commit a criminal offence that the person would have otherwise been unlikely or unwilling to commit. It “is the conception and planning of an offence by an officer, and his procurement of its commission by one who would not have perpetrated it except for the trickery, persuasion or fraud of the officer.”

          Since these conversations happened in 2015 and there was no DOJ investigation then, how could it be entrapment. Try educating yourself before responding.
