Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock…

Keith Raniere

The countdown has officially begun. Sometime in the next few days, one or more superseding indictments will be unsealed by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Eastern Division of New York – and, when that happens, some will have their lives changed forever. Given the prior statements that have been made, on the record, by Moira Kim Penza, the Assistant U.S. Attorney who is the lead prosecutor in the currently pending case against Keith Raniere and Allison Mack, it seems likely that the superseding indictment(s) will contain additional criminal charges against Raniere and Mack – and new criminal charges against one or more of the other individuals who help facilitate, finance, and/or operate the NXIVM sex-slaver cult.

Just imagine how they’re feeling right now. What type of questions are running through heads all day long – and as they lay in bed at night:

  • Am I going to be one of the new ones indicted?
  • If I don’t get indicted this time, will they indict me at a later date?
  • What if Clare Bronfman doesn’t offer to pay for my criminal defense attorney?
  • Will my family – with whom I haven’t communicated in years – be willing and able to do so (I’ve heard those New York City criminal defense attorneys will want at least a $250,000 retainer to represent anyone in this case – and that it may cost each defendant at least $1 million to go to trial)?
  • Will the judge grant me bail – and, if so, where am I going to get the money that will be required for it?
  • Will my parents be willing to put their home on the line so that I can stay out of prison for a few more months?
  • What will I do if I’m offered a deal by the prosecutors? Worse yet, what will I do if I’m not offered a deal by the prosecutors?
  • Will other members of the cult testify against me (They’ve all told me they won’t do that but how can I trust anyone who may be looking at spending the next 20-years in prison?)?
  • How long can I survive in prison without going crazy: 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years? What will I look like when I get out?
  • What sorts of criminal activities do I know about that may be of interest to the Feds?- Do they know who carried cash across the border from Mexico into the U.S.?

    – Do they know about all the P.O. boxes we used to funnel other cash into the U.S.?

    – Do they know how much cash – and other things – we smuggled into the U.S. on-board the Bronfmans’ private plane?

    – Do they know what really happened to Gina Hutchinson?

    – Do they know what really happened to Kristin Snyder?

    – Do they know about all the law enforcement officials that we bribed?

    – Do they know all about the other law enforcement officials that we compromised – and then blackmailed to do our bidding?

    – Do they know about all the lies that we told in the Rick Ross case?

    – Do they know about all the lies that we told – and all the fake evidence we produced – to get Joe O’Hara indicted back in 2007?

    – Do they know everything that Richard Mays, a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, did to help advance NXIVM’s agenda?

    – Do they know how much money we ran through the fake foundations – and what actually happened to all that money?

    – Do they know about how much money we forced the nannies who worked at Rainbow Cultural Garden to kick back to us – and what happened to that money?

    – Do they know about the fake evidence we produced to get Toni Natalie, Joe O’Hara, and John Tighe indicted on those phony computer trespass charges back in 2015?

    – Do they know how much we paid Jack Goldenberg to give us all of Joe O’Hara’s emails from his former company’s server?

    – Do they know how we got Holly Trexler to continue with the computer trespass charges even after she found out there was no basis for them?

    – Do they know that we planted child porn on John Tighe’s computer?

    – Do they know what we did to get Joe O’Hara indicted in Texas?

    – Do they know how we bribed a judge in Mexico to issue false indictments against Toni Natalie, Susan Dones, Kim Woolhouse, Barbara Bouchey, Frank Parlato and Joe O’Hara – and that each of them will still get arrested if they ever travel to Mexico?

    – Do they know all the lies we told in the Yuri Plyam trial? Do they know we’re still trying to market the properties that we said were worthless – and that we hired one of our former “expert witnesses” to handle the marketing even though she’s never done that kind of work (Keith thought it was a clever way to pay her off for her phony testimony against Yuri)?

    – Do they know all the illegal and unethical things our attorneys did to advance cases against Keith’s enemies: e.g., Bill Savino, John Bartolomeo, Steve Coffey, Bob Crockett, Mike McDermott, Pam Nichols, et al?

    – Do they know about all the experiments we were running on the kids who attended Rainbow Cultural Garden?

    – Do they know how we were getting all those phony visas for the Mexican girls (I bet they don’t know about that attorney down South who was a key part of the scheme)?

    – Do they know where all the DOS “collateral” is located?

    – Do they know where all the other videotapes are located?

    – Do they know how much we paid – and all the lies we told – to get Frank Parlato indicted?

    – Is Nancy going to flip in order to save Lauren and Michelle?

    – Do they know about the money laundering we did for the Mexican cartels?

    – Do they know what Keith’s real plan was for Libya?

    – Do they know how many underage girls Keith raped?

    – Do they know about all the computers we hacked into to get “dirt” on Keith’s enemies (Will Ben Meyers or Steve Ose tell them all about that stuff if I don’t)?

    These are dark times indeed for those who worked so hard to keep the NXIVM criminal enterprise up-and-running for the past 20 years. The end is near – and there’s nothing they can do right now, except worry and wonder what’s going to happen to them.

  • From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

    A Grand Jury had been empaneled.

    Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

    Yet, from 2001 to 2003 none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

    Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure this out.

    Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

    Bet you can’t guess.

    No other than James “Wassup Homey” Comey.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?

    Your friend and mine, our favorite person in the whole world if you are a Tea Party Member, Pro-Life or a True the Vote supporter……. ding, ding, ding, ding Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    It gets better, well not really, but I am sure this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

    Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

    No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

    Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

    Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this timeframe???

    I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

    What do all four casting characters have in common?

    They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

    Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

    Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

    Let’s fast forward to 2009, shall we?

    James “Wassup Homey” Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

    Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

    The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hildabeast.

    Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to no other than, the Russians.

    Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.

    However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Arkansas Bill goes to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a one hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

    Ok, no big deal right?

    Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

    Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?

    Yep, Robert Mueller.

    He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

    Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.

    No other than, Rod Rosenstein.

    Guess what happened to the informant?

    The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

    Interesting, huh?

    How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

    Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

    ~145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

    Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

    No other than, Lois “BOLO” Lerner.

    Interesting, huh?

    Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

    Let’s fast forward to 2015.

    Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hildabeast ran the State Department on a unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

    He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

    He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

    I will spare you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for the Hildabeast.

    Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

    Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

    No other than James “Wassup Homey” Comey.

    Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

    Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation”

  • Remember when Donald Trump was business partners with the Russian government and his company got 53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as “Putin’s Child”?

    Oh wait, that wasn’t Trump it was John Podesta.

    Remember when Donald Trump received 500 thousand for a speech in Moscow and paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?

    Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.

    Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of US uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State which gave control of it to Rosatom the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?

    Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.

    Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn’t a part of approving the deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his emails were leaked showing he did lie about it?

    Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.

    Remember when Donald Trump got 145 million dollars from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?

    Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

    Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian Oligarchs like the chairman of a company that’s part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster, the wife of the mayor of Moscow, and a close pal of Putin’s?

    Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.

    Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records?

    Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.

    Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the 80s called and it wanted its Russian policy back. The Cold War is over?

    Oh wait, that was President Obama.

    Remember when Trump got caught on a hot mic telling the Russian ambassador he’d have much more flexibility after the elections, and the ambassador said he’d pass it on to Putin?

    Oh wait, that was Obama.

    Man… Trump’s ties to Russia are really disgusting!🙄

  • You pedophiles are all alike. How many children did you help traffic from Mexico to Raniere?

  • No one wants to hear about Amway. No one wants to call you. No one wants to visit your blog.

    You add ugliness to FrankReport that makes decent people leave. A pathetic 60-year old man sitting at home on Portside Lane typing furiously away turning comment sections into cesspools while your wife supports you. Since 1993. The decent people remaining want you to leave.

    A tiny sampling of your comments, found in 2 minutes here on FrankReport, another 2 minutes and I could find many, many more:

    Are you a lefty or a righty? How long did it take for you to ejaculate?

    I know how to handle jerks, and you fell right in line. Thanks for proving my point. You need to get out more, that was going easy on you.

    I’m VERY disappointed in this group. You were given a great opportunity and you almost universally blew it. At least I now know the low brow type of people following and commenting on Frank’s website.

    I love getting in the last word.

    I’m such a meany, melting all of you snowflakes. Are you alt-stupid, or just plain stupid? LOL

    I’ve had plenty of men and women try to stand up to me, but they eventually wilt away. You’re next.

    That was nothing. You should see what I do to people I like. I treat ladies like ladies, I treat bitches like bitches. Any other questions?

    Oh you poor thing, I feel so sorry for being an “abusive male.” Little wimpy snowflake. Stand back so you don’t melt away.

    You’re just drooling in a corner making funny noises while your mommy is doing her best to type what she thinks you’re saying.

    Is this just jealousy for being scooped, “Lana?”

    With all due respect (which would be none), you don’t have a clue. Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on your way out. LOL

    Are you a lawyer? RICO wouldn’t be the ONLY charge. Stop your ameteur armchair mumbo jumbo.

    Who cares about Raniere’s IQ? I don’t. He’s in jail, and hopefully will stay there for rest of his miserable life, the rest of us aren’t. Case CLOSED.

    Rush is my hero. All you Libtards are sickening.

    This is my SA-8 soap box, among others. Didn’t you know Raniere learned all of his MLM scam fundamentals in Amway, Omar?

    Allison is swinging that ax like a girl…with fat cankles that would nearly burst boots, if she were wearing them, and she has man-hands as well

    Go back to having sex with yourself, Omar. LOL

    The only thing more stupid than you….. is NOTHING. LOL

    Tony, spare us the “I know more but I’m not going to say anything” BS. Put it all on the table. ALL OF IT. NOW!

    Just shut up. You’re tho thensitive. LOL

    I can’t get more stupid than you, Flowers. Again you’re behind the knowledge curve, as The Tanster has volunteered to pay for the polygraph test. Stupid Libtard snowflake and Hellary THE Horrible lover. LOL

    George, get a clue. Women are our equals now, remember? It happened back in the 60s and 70s, and the latest echo recently, called the #metoo movement. If they can’t handle the heat, they need to return to the kitchen.

    Flowers, not only is Libtard a well established word, but insisting it is a made up word makes YOU the F*cktard. Google it! LOL

    Thank you for your input, Libtard snowflake. LOL

    I thought posting here is vacation. Making fun of Libtard snowflakes is quite amusing. LOL

  • It’s all deja vu at this point. Same shit, new pile.
    And still you all keep shovelling. Why?

    So we have the sane and nonpartial defenders (Hi there Sketch!) and the cRaZy CrYpTic comment guy (Shmoo that yooooo? ) and someone to cause some controversy to get them all riled up.

    I wonder if Frank knows?

    I wonder if any real people still write comments on this blog?

    I wonder what the agenda is this time around?

    • Yep the NVIXM true believers crapping up the comments with their left wing bullcrap. Some may also be corrupt NY politicians who know their gig is about to come to light. No defense of Johnson either as he is every bit as culpable, however the fact that he bugs the NVIXM crappers is enjoyable.

      • I’m left wing and not pedophile. I’m not defending Raniere. My only problem is I’m a woman with thick ankle. A lot of LOL

          • Considering that’s just Putins word, with no evidence to back up those claims, I don’t put much stock in that being true.
            Putin has made other wild claim ‘s about Browder (including that he was a serial murderer) and none of those have been proven true.

            But it sure appears that a lot of people are waking up to the reality of Trump’s lies now, if the size of the protesting crowd means anything.
            And you know Trump thinks that’s important.

      • Political party is irrelevant with this subject. Clifton park is solidly republican. I think this county voted for trump. So please don’t call us liberals. Your thinking of the counties next door. Nice try.

        • Many registered democrats voted for President Trump idiot. The fact remains the New York State and the Albany area is infested with corrupt politicians mostly democrat who were either involved or on the take from NXIVM. You know damn well if Hellery Clunton had stole the election Raniere will still be free and NXIVM-Bronfman cult will still be destroying lives.

          • Do you really believe what you’re saying? What exactly are you afraid of? Is it still Communist fear? You’re weird..

          • You left wing shitbaggers are afraid of Putin and the commies. You-re fucked up.

          • To the Dark Wing: With your vocabulary you really make me want to meet you.

        • Flower pot, you’re a total left wing nut troll NXIVM Bronfman Salzman, pantystain You and your leftist goombas are failing fast. Let’s talk about the liars

          When did the Russians interfere in our election? 2016. Who was President? Obama. Who was head of the CIA? John Brennan. Who was the National Intelligence Director? Clapper. Who was head of the FBI? First Mueller, then Comey. Intelligence agencies no longer deserve America’s trust

          • I guess that’s why so many of Trump’s staff are being investigated and charged now. …and more indictment ‘s coming soon.
            And funny that I don’t remember a crowd gathering on the WH lawn to protest Obama.

          • You are quite the idiot flowers. Let’s talk Bill Browder

            Who is Bill Browder?

            He’s an ex-pat now a citizen of UK/Israel and he stole Billions from Russia. He’s also the reason we now have this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnitsky_Act

            He left his attorney/accountant to be beat to death in Moscow Prison so he could never testify against Browder for this High Treason in USA or turned over to Russia.

            All of the funds he stole from Russia went to very deep intensely complicated Off_shore accounts one of which was the Clinton Foundation.

            He’s a serious wicked evil snake.

            2 years of the phony Russia – Trump collusion and all we are finding out is that OBAMA-Clinton were the ones colluding. Flowers take your left wing lies and stick them.

          • I know who he is. Everything you say about him is an accusation, not a fact. You seem to think that when you say something, it becomes fact. It doesn’t.

            And since you’re linking me to Salzman and Bronfman, you’re demonstrating that you’re not too swift, as I have nothing to do with any of those bitches.

          • Flower pot, you don’t know shit about Bill Browder. Take your fucking NXIVM infested head and go find a doorknob.

            Browder is an American-born British financier. He is the CEO and
            co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management, an investment fund that at
            one time was the largest foreign portfolio investor in Russia. He gave
            up his U.S. citizenship in 1998 to avoid paying taxes related to foreign

            $400 Million bribe to Hillary campaign.
            Browder had deliberately bankrupted his company and engaged in tax evasion. He was sentenced to nine years prison in absentia.. gave up US citizenship to avoid taxes.

            Now why would a Putin opponent give money to the only candidate in the 2016 election who wanted to repeal the anti-Putin Maginsky Act? During the campaign, Hillary had the most pro-Putin platform of all! This is as implausible as the whole collusion story, but then again, the Democrats never let facts get in the way of that!

            Browder (who’s grandfather lead the Communist Party USA) has a long record of paying off the DEMS. Ask Ben Cardin He’s gotten a lot of loot and was the driving source for the Maginsky Act in the senate.

            .In 1998, Bill Browder gave up his U.S. citizenship and became a British citizen, partly to avoid paying U.S. taxes on foreign investments.[3][16] At the time, he was working in the Eastern European practice of the Boston Consulting Group in London,[17] and managed the Russian proprietary investments desk at Salomon Brothers.[18] In October 2017, when answering a question about the decision to renounce his U.S. citizenship, he cited “a legacy of bad feeling about the rule of law” as a result of his family having been “viciously persecuted” by the U.S. authorities in the 1950s

            Browder set up false Russian companies to illegally but $80 million in Russian owned Gazaprom stocks for democrat billionaire mega donors
            These Ziff Brothers are NY billionaire donors to Hillary Obama & McCain
            Gazprom is the owner of the Russian pipeline which Trump called out during NATO ie German dependency on Russian energy.
            Go figure Browder a communist who renounced his US citizenship & committed massive fraud on behalf of Clinton Obama mega donors over a pipeline all Trumps enemies want built….

            Flower bitch pull your head outta Hellery’s depends and get some air cause you are going to need it you moron.

          • Flowers is an ignorant left wing plant to distract from the NXIVM democrat connections. Now for truth Browder.

            Well, this is bad, real bad for Bill and Hill. Who is Browder? He is a scumbag, he is literally a man without a country with a dark family history, he was born in Kansas. His grandad was the head of the Communist party in the USA while Stalin came to power. With that family history Browder was given special access to the Soviet Union. Browder started out with 20 million, he was inside the Soviet Union as it collapsed. Browder bought the means of production for pennies on the dollar. He never fought against the oligarchs he was an oligarch! He eventually renounced his US citizenship, why? Because enough is never enough and he did not want to pay US taxes! He lived in Russia for years and years, even though he lived there and he made BILLIONS there he never became a Russian citizen why? Because he did not want to pay Taxes! He is a scumbags scumbag. Before he was Putin’s biggest enemy he LOVED Putin, there is a 2004 NYT article when he was on Putin’s side and said that he and the Russians loved Putin and that Putin was the leader they needed. What changed? Well his offices in Russia where raided and he had setup his whole operation to avoid paying Russian taxes he was barred from returning to Russia, and he was tried and convicted in Russia in absentia.
            This is just his background!, now connect it to Bill Hill, and McStain. Well this guy was cut off from his billions when? Right when the Clinton Foundation was opened for business! This case will be the clearest example of pay for play the USA has seen. Browder new where is money was but could not withdraw it. He went to the Clinton Foundation and struck a deal, “get my 1.5 billion out of Russia and I will donate one third of it to your knowable cause”, which of course for the Clinton Foundation is Hill and Bill. Hill and Bill then used their government contacts within the intelligence apparatus of the USA to the money for a man that renounce his citizenship! That money is all traceable. This is all kinds of bad.

          • To break it down and put into context. The city of Saratoga is what brings in higher democratic numbers. The town of clifton park and Halfmoon are based on a more rural suburbs. Clifton park and half moon (where NXVIM lived) is Republican and conservative. Albany county is more liberal and progressive. So inothrr words NXVIM made way in conservative souther Saratoga and liberal and progressive albany county. So political affiliation has nothing to do with this group. They are equal opportunity in taking advantage to people. These are the nueances that a local would understand.
            I also want to thank you for having a pleasant debate. I just wanted to explain who we are. Please don’t blame one party or the other. There are many people involved.

        • This explains the “treason!” outcry from the rats; it’s an extinction burst. That’s the heaviest accusation in their arsenal, and they just spent it.

          They would have far preferred a war that would’ve allowed them to make everything go away; but it’s not going away now. Obama saw this coming, hence his Kenya “visit”. Channeling Nelson Mandela to try and achieve a political foothold to save his own skin. I doubt it will work.

          The Podesta bros will take an immunity deal for testimony against Manafort, but once the investigation is revealed to be a sham their immunity deals will be worthless and their crimes laid out for all to see.

          What went under the radar? The Lisa Page testimony, snuck by undetected thanks to the Trump and Putin Show, which outed every single crook in the book thanks to their overreactions.

          The Pope is in check following the arrest attempt; he’s isolated to the Vatican where Bishops plot his “retirement”.

          The Queen is in check; she was openly humiliated and therefor quarantined. She will relinquish a lot of land in order to remain free.

          Brennan is just going to fry, and rightfully so.

          Soros, oh Soros; where will you go? For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul?

          But the greatest fall is the Clintons. My oh my, the tales that will be told. The Witch can’t off herself because of the tab she’s racked up with the devil, this life is all she has and she knows it. Bill, well, he might very well do it. Chelsea, who knows?

  • Scott, it’s kind of hard to ignore your comments when you take over the comments section on pretty much every post.

    • Looks like some negative cycles are gone and broken. Better posts by some people. More people are focusing on the subject and slowly getting to a better environment. Just ignor the trolls who only personally attack everyone and maybe they will go away. Just wish some old posters come back.
      By the way haven’t read anything from Chris Burbs for a long time. And some others.

        Isn’t also true you go on *random rants* bc you are mental?

        Lyin Scott Johnson – The Vanguard of Plano

          • Your wife is an office manager in a Plano Independent School District Texas pubic high school.

            Your two sons are both special education assistants in the Plano ISD,

            You have been obsessed with Amway since 1993. And you were a failure at Amway.

            The tens of thousand of dollars you spent on Amway and all that money you spent on a lawyer when Amway sued you? That was your sugar mama.

            You’re an alpha. LOL. That is defintely not true. But everything else is true.

          • Your sons could double their salaries by becoming special education teachers, versus assistants.

            Your family seems great. I bet they’re smart. Teacher training would be easy for your sons.

            You’ve got some smarts. Not nearly as much as you think. You’re obsessive and in need of mental help. And you’re inexcusably rude to many in this forum.

            You’re also going to be a grandfather. Live a little. Learn a little. Get off the interwebs. Cook a dinner for your sugar mama. She’s earned it. Since 1993. Jeesh.

            We don’t care about Amway. And you’re rude to everyone. Go away. Go away and help your sons become teachers and cook your wife a romantic meal. Do something positive and productive for a change.

        BENNY sZEEemPKu

      • Ben Szemkus alleges that the imaginary NXIVM recruitment mixer that he attended (inside of his vivid THC-infused imagination) took place in Hamden, Connecticut, off of Skiff St., right behind Kohls, and just up the hill from Popeye’s Louisiana Chicken. For more details on Ben’s tall tale be sure to check out the excellent interview that Peter Mingils and Scott Johnson conducted with Ben Szemkus; it was broadcast live on June 24, 2018. In that interview, Lyin’ Ben clearly states that “the NXIVM party in 2007” was held in Hamden, CT.

        Unfortunately, most people’s memory for details are not as good as that of Ben Szemkus. Lyin’ Ben remembers all the good stuff from eleven years ago, but Scott Johnson, like most good old folks, could not remember such a significant detail, i.e., in what city the NXIVM party was held. Scott read about Hamden, CT barely a week ago and Hamden, CT was also mentioned to him about three weeks ago, by Ben Szemkus himself. Thank God for the elephant-like memory of Ben Szemkus; his memory is truly a national treasure!

  • I come here to read about NXIVM related issues from people in the know or people who have been there. I used to look forward to reading the Frank Report and the comments left by concerned people. The past few months it’s been harder and harder to get myself to come here due to what I think are people who are distractions from the real issues. People who need to toot their own horns and let off some steam.

    Personally I think these people should be band from posting the Frank Report. It is turning into the Scott Johnson’s comment section Report. Than we have the fighting that comes with his post and responding to a post Blah Blah Blah. People have suggested to “just leave him alone and don’t respond”. I think he’s got too much hot air and loves any kind of attention he can draw to himself and his Amway cause. If I want to read about Amway, I’ll do an internet search about it.

    Frank, it’s time to consider if some of the posters / post are really worth it. How many people are not coming as often because they do not want to deal with the problem children posting here. I say Kick them to the curb, they most likely work for the Knife or Clare anyways.

    • Yep. Tex esp and also Shadow makes this feel like 4chan. I used to love coming to FrankReport. And I hardly ever visit anymore, despite being very interested in the NXIVM saga.

      • If that NXIVM hacker who planted kiddie porn on John Tighe’s computer is reading this blog, would you please plant porn on Scott Johnson’s computer. Maybe Scott will get arrested, or at least be too busy with his johnson to post.

      • Which is why you’re kicked out of most of them.

        Supported by your wife since 1993.

        And ancient. 60 years old.

        Set in your Amway ways.

        This forum is about NIXVM. Not Amway.

        • The reason I’m kicked out of forums is because they can’t handle the facts about the ATS (Amway Tool Scam) and take action, rather than just snipe, much like you losers. They also turned on me instead of Amway. How stupid to just talk rather than take action against a scam. I’ve had a job since way before 1993 and make far more money than my wife. This forum is about whatever Frank wants it to be about. LOL

          • If you were stupid enough to get scammed by a known right-wing cult/pyramid scheme like Scamway, you really are a pathetic dumbfuck. Scamway has been ripping off right- wing nutcases for decades now. You deserve what you got you moron, Go away.

          • Just like many other idiots, you blame the person being ripped off rather than those ripping them off. Why don’t you do the same with the people taken advantage of by NXIVM? Because you’re a very weak human being, and have NOTHING to add to either the Amway or NXIVM discussion, that’s why. LOL

            It’s not a question of being stupid, it’s an indication of how good of liars they are. The “internets” has helped expose them, but my job isn’t done until Amway is gone or significantly changes their scamming practices.

            If Amway is so well known for being a scam, why are they still around? You idiots don’t realize I’m several steps ahead of you, and have probably lapped most of you. LOL

    • Enough.. He is only one person who has changed the direction. Its more than one person who has popped on since Allisons arrest who have suppressed the people who are truly vested in this from the start. I want to extend an apology to Flowers for an exchange I had with her. She clearly adds to conversation and I respect her… But I do trust her…. I went back after that exchange and get what was happening….. Again I am sorry… I am just jumping in because I miss the cooperation and the sharing of stories of what was happening in OUR community. From the people on the ground who were giving us updates. Heads up of when not to go to certain places (unless you were one of the photographers) but the general public knew that NXVIM was having big gatherings… so you didn’t want to buy you meat that day…. I miss all the nuances and information and respect the commenters had for each other. The old people are totally vested in this whether they were informing, warning, venting or whatever related to the events on the ground…. That sense of community is gone…. And Enough it is not just one person it is a few people… I find insulting and putting down people no matter who they are is not helpful. I never felt the need to comment before except once because I felt people on here had so much more information than I have…. Here’s how I live my life…I dont take things personally because I know who I am and I know those insults say more about the person who is delivering the insults than the recipient…. We humans project what we think of ourselves onto others…. So take it that way and it wont hurt so much….. Going forward the only commenters I will read will be Laura Darby and all the old commenters who have a history of information and ignore the ad homein attacks and unrelated subjects (yes right now I am guilty of being off subject. but this is important) . And if anyone gives information that is incorrect or missing a point…consider the source. (this is a general statement) Mama taught me not to believe everything I read…. So consider the source and let it go (I am speaking about any and all social media generally speaking) Now I am going back to just reading. I have said all that I will and just want the page to get back to its original vibes and feelings.
      Carry on……

      • Correction. He is not the only one. There are a group of people who are exchanging insults. No need for insults. All insults do is shuts down discussion. I believe respect gets people further in life. Again it’s multiple people exchanging insults.
        Now I am done.

  • I too wouldn’t be surprised at all if John Tighe was framed. NXIVM allegedly bought off a number of legal authorities in the area and at least one of its representatives (Kristin Keeffe) was granted access to a DA’s office to help in an investigation against its enemies in the past so it’s not like a precedent doesn’t exist. All it takes is one bad seed to allow someone access to a locked down computer to do what they want with it, and there is no doubt that members of NXIVM had the computer expertise to do something like this. If I was in internal investigations I would look closely at the chain of custody list and everyone on it and anyone who had access to the evidence storage.

    Knowing the many enemies that John created due to his Saratoga In Decline blog – and not just in NXIVM – it just seems far too convenient that his computer was seized and child pornography was found on it, especially considering the fact that John knew about Raniere’s past history with underage girls and was so vitriolic against such behavior on the same blog where he had no reservations speaking his mind.

    I’m not a believer in coincidences. Human motivations are often quite predictable. That’s why most crime cases are solvable.

    • Except for the fact that he pled guilty and and admitted that he had images and videos of children engaging in sexual acts on his computer that he collected and viewed, you could have a point. Tighe certainly had it right with respect to NXIVM. That makes him no less of a scumbag.

      • Yes it’s true that pleading guilty can mean someone is guilty. However, it’s also true that pleading guilty can be done reservedly due to a risk reward ratio that is not worth it. In other words, it could mean the he would rather take five years in prison to have a greater chance at a free life for many years after the sentence terminates than risk twenty if found guilty and possibly die in prison due to health reasons. Pleading guilty doesn’t prove without a doubt that he wasn’t framed. Also, proving that you were framed when legal authorities are compromised would be a daunting task for any lawyer. I don’t think it would be possible without access to internal investigations.



    In going through Nicki Clyne’s Instagram pictures I noted that around February 14, 2018 Mrs. Nicki Clyne-Mack visited Puerto Vallarta.
    Here is a picture posted by Nicki of an Iguana.
    Puerto Vallarta is famous for being the sight where the movie “Night of the Iguana” was filmed.

    In the lower corner is the date stamp of February 14.

    Was Nicki in Puerto Vallarta doing some reconnaissance?

    Were Allison Mack-Clyne’s “Bad Ass Warrior Women” already doing dry runs in Puerto Vallarta to kidnap and kill NXIVM defectors?

    The Vanguard was not arrested in Puerto Vallarta until around March 26, 2018.


    • Inquiring minds should read more, post less, and leave the investigation to Frank and DOJ. My understanding is that Vanguard and some selected Vanguardettes headed for Mexico soon after the first NY Times “branded” article appeared.
      Did get a good chuckle out of you trying to make Ms. Clyne into some sort of a criminal mastermind; she’s just another vacuous Vancouver gal who binged on word salad and was hypnotized by a goofy cross-eyed faux guru.

      • Take some time to read Frank Parlato’s articles before commenting.

        “Nicki Clyne may be placed on hot seat – after being on receiving end of hot iron branding”

        “From successful actress to Raniere’s best gal in the harem, to a quick downgrade, to working for Clare Bronfman as a gofer, to taking illegal money laundered through Canada for payment, to marrying Allison Mack to stay in the country, to following Raniere to Mexico, and chasing the police car that arrested him, to a likely indictment for conspiracy and sex trafficking and maybe spending years in prison.”

        Nicki Clyne is going down!
        And not just on Allison and Vanguard.

        • I have read everything Frank has posted going back a couple of years now. I do not know where you got “kidnap and kill” from the passages from Frank Report which you quoted.

          I’ll stick with the facts as reported by Frank and his sources, but do not begrudge you your fantasies and speculation. The “kidnap and/or kill” stratagem was likely “masterminded” by Messrs. Raniere, Salinas and Betancourt. Nicki Clyne, one hit TV wonder, one time consultant at The Knife, awkward stand up comic, currently a food service employee, likely had nothing to do with any “planning”, though I must say that I envy the fact that you have the time to study Twitter accounts so extensively.

          As I have said many times (speculation on MY part): Allison and Nicki were two B- actresses who realized that they would soon be too old and not “adorkable” enough to appeal to teenage audiences; they also correctly realized that only older actresses with superior chops (ie Streep and Mirren) would find any satisfactory roles in Hollywood. Their answer was to turn to “The Source” for assistance in furthering their acting careers. Sad.

          • Was there any endeavor dreamed up by Raniere and Clare Bronfman that Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne ever said no to?

            “Get these women branded and turned into lifetime sex slaves. Then collect blackmail information on them.”
            “Yes Sir, Master Vanguard!” Slaves Allison and Nicki.

            This opera ain’t over until the prosecutors sing.

  • HAHAHAHAHA!!! Scott Johnson BUSTED! For having no job, and sponging off his wife.

    Not even his kids want anything to do with him. He cannot beat arguments based on logic,

    So, he attacks your gender, race, religion, politics, and everything else in an effort to distract.

    It makes sense that he has no job and lives off his wife’s work $$$. Mega lazy, just like Vanguard.

    VanScott Johnson…BUSTED! The unemployed loser of Plano!!!


  • The best thing to do is ignore him entirely. When he can’t get a reaction, sooner or later, he will go away. The more energy you waste on him, the more he will be here.

    Unlike whatever appears to be the latest incarnation of Allison’s mother, who will probably go away once she is convicted.

  • Great follow up episode with round table discussion with survivors.

    Sarah Edmonston really hit the nail on the head.

    Most of us did what I did. We walked away, and were glad just to be free of NXIVM.

    The only thing further I would add to that I know I have been grateful not to be pursued.

    I stayed quiet and only talked to investigative reporters anonymously to try to keep it that way.

    I am glad people have had the courage to come forward. It is the Catch 22 of it would help for even more to come forward, but some probably still won’t really feel safe until people are actually convicted.

    • Only issue I have with the last A&E special (we don’t know what was left on the edit floor either) is when Sarah agreed that she was the first to come out about NXIVM. She might have been the first to come out about the branding but there have been several who have come out about NXIVM long before Sarah came forward. It would of been nice to hear her talk about those she ignored years before she left.

  • Shut Up Scott Johnson. 7 Posts on this thread alone.

    From someone who is fighting AMWAY to stay relevant (its not). From someone who lies to drive traffic to his website.

    No one is listening to you anymore

    • Mickey, YOU shut up and start posting something intelligent for a change. Amway scammed people out of 10s of billions of dollars last year. Amway is more relevant than NXIVM, which is no longer in operation, has 2 of its “leaders” arrested, and more to come. NXIVM is largely out of our hands and in the hands of the DOJ/FBI. No one is listening to you anymore. Get a clue and a grip. LOL

    • An accurate observation someone made about him. He’s been banned from nearly every forum he’s been on in the last 23 years. His wife keeps a roof over her family. Tellingly, his two sons have followed in their mother’s footsteps. They want nothing to do with their father’s “success.”

      “Grant Johnson, Plano West Senior High School special education assistant, became the groom of Victoria Smith on July 15. Mother of groom is Danice Johnson, Plano West Senior High School office manager, and brother of the groom is Anders Johnson, Shepton High School special education assistant.”


      He’s kept by his sugar mama so he needs to peacock prance online to feel like he’s “alpha.” He spent at least $35K on Amway, never made a real profit over his 17 years with Amway, and has no real job now. He just sits at home on his flabby 60-year-old ass trolling forums.

      I’m hoping Frank bans him. Many commenters have left because of him and there will be a large and fresh influx of commenters as the court cases heat up.

      • And to think, I was defending him….. Trying to give him the benefit of the doubt….( I am sorry Flowers. ) now I know what you were going through…. Shame on me for defending him

        • Scott has a mystery agenda here, and he does seem to be picking on me specifically. I say “specificly” because he started in on me after I posted my opinion of the Ben story, and I wasn’t the only person who thought the story was fake, yet Scott was really over-the-top in his comments to me.

          I have no idea if he’s been banned from.forum’s, or if any of the other things moosha keeps posting about him is true. I did notice 2 (apparently ) separate posters who spelled ‘banned’ as BAND , so I’m gonna guess there is one person writing as many.
          Not sure what it’s all about…and it’s not self-absorption to point out that this same trolling happened on another forum I used to post on, and those trolls later harassed me on other forums. In fact, they probably started to target me previous to the trolling/bullying but I was unaware at the time.

          Notice the nasty posts addressed to me the other day by the idiot using the name “hey flowers”? …I won’t bother even explaining why that person is an idiot, except to say they posted that I claimed I was being stalked by a man who was following me around as a sexual obsession – and I’ve never said anything of the sort.
          The “stalkers” who follow me are criminals, and one of things they utilize to harass people are Internet forums.

          Why? I have no idea, but it’s nothing to do with stalking because they are sexually obsessed with someone. They have some other agenda.

  • Since the Knife isn’t going so well with all the bad press, it appears that some are now posting on the Frank Report to see what kind of interference they can create. It’s pretty easy to pick them out and easy to pass up their post.

  • What hypocrits uou all are condeming a cult for its sexs acts and supporting a convicted child pornographer who never claimed he was framed.

    • What John Tighe did or didn’t claim ?

      Were you his lawyer ?

      John Tighe is a brave man, and I absolutely believe he is innocent and was forced into a plea because of NXIVM setup.

      You know who belongs in prison ? Ben Myers or whomever it was who went digging to find 50,000+ images of child pornography to put on his computer. Whomever that is, they are filthy, disgusting excuses for people that should never see the light of day again.

      • you don’t know that to be true any more than i know it to not be true.
        Don’t make excuses for a child pornographer . Hypocrite.

  • In trying to get a measure of Nicki Clyne, who might soon be indicted, I visited her Twitter page and noted what she was following.

    Clyne generally follows justice websites particularly those of people wrongfully convicted of crimes.
    She also follows gay and left wing sites although she follows some conservatives like Jordan Peterson.

    The only cult connected sites she follows are Knife Media and Rose Laura Junco.

      • When Scott and Shadow reply to each other directly it makes it so much easier to skip over the dicta.

        And no Scott, too busy in the real (no MLM paranoia, no teen B- actress obsessions) world to indulge in omphaloskepsis.

        Mr. Frank … you should charge a small subscription fee for this blog which many of us would gladly pay to enjoy a comments section free of agenda and ego.

        • I’m impressed, I didn’t know there was a big word for navel gazing. Did the person who invented that word have to stare at their navel for a long time to come up with it?

          MLM “paranoia?” LOL

          Actress obsession? LOL

          You wouldn’t pay for this blog, you wouldn’t even contribute to Ben’s polygraph after raking him over the coals. Unless “small” was a penny a year. LOL

  • What is the likelihood John Tigue was framed by NXIVM? It was strange to read that he pleaded guilty to possesion of child pornography after he had been reporting on Keith Raniere’s paedophilia. If it was a set up, NXIVM must of felt threatened by him. What information does he have on NXIVM and it’s members? What information does he have on the celebrities who were heavily involved? What information does he have on that Necker Island NXIVM cult summit he revealed in February 2012? He said that the attendees discussed how to move and hide money including hiding money in the Caribbean. That is criminal activity. The FBI should have this information.

  • Thanks for including (what I believe to be) the setup on John Tighe in your summation. I believe Ben Myers was likely involved in that.

    Never in my life would I believe any pedophile would stand up in public and say to a known, viciously retaliatory criminal enterprise, “Here I am. Come get me.”

    Also, what about the Mexican teenagers that were trafficked into the US, forced to perform unpaid labour and kept in Rosa Laura Junco’s basement for Raniere to have access to them ?

    As well as, already knowing that the Feds have video evidence of Dani Padilla’s lengthy imprisonment, every single person in those videos should be sweating bullets.

    • John Tigne was a retired sanitation Worker for the local municipality; not too bright. Keith’s behavior sometimes attracts nut cases which is what happened here. This is why he has been sentenced to a mental hospital in northeastern Mass. Yes, he was caught with Porn on his computer and when the State Police took his computer; He remarked ” don’t tell her ( meaning his wife) everything that is on my computer. So, yes he is quality. Hope he gets the help he needs. As Frank got to know Keith before he wrote about him and saw his evil ways before he blogged about Keith, John Tigne was simply a nut case trying to prove himself locally as someone important.

      • Hey, the guy’s reputation is not sterling at this point, considering he’s locked up for child porn, but you’re being pretty fucking nasty. He might not be booksmart with perfect grammar but Tighe is very intelligent. Anyone who read his blog with regularity would have recognized this.

        And whatever he is alleged to have said to the State Police when they served the warrant, I take with a huge heaping spoonful of salt. They’re cops, they lie ALL THE TIME, especially when they are compromised by a cult. I have serious doubts he blurted out something so incriminating.

        He was far more than a “nut case trying to prove himself locally as someone important.” He was someone who helped many people gain the inner strength to leave NXIVM and no matter what, he’s an important figure alongside Toni, Barbara, Frank and others in bringing down NXIVM. He was a fearless motherfucker.

        I remember mentioning the blog to an acquaintance in NXIVM back when Saratoga In Decline was up and running. That person told me that John Tighe was a dumb sanitation worker and a nutcase who just wanted attention.

        Funny, Oscar, that you’re trying to sell the same narrative almost a decade later.

      • Oscar, I have no idea who you are, nor why you’re posting bullshit, made-up stuff about John Tighe. But I don’t want to let your crap posting go unchallenged because some other reader may think you actually know what you’re talking about.

        First of all, I have no idea whether the child porn that was found on John Tighe’s computer was planted or not. Neither do you.

        What I do know is that John took a plea deal that ensured he would be sent to Fort Devens prison – which is one of the Feds’ top medical facilities for prisoners (It’s definitely not a “mental hospital’; nor is it in “northeastern Mass”). Prior to being arrested, John was being treated for a life threatening health problem and had lost his insurance coverage. Since being incarcerated, he’s had numerous surgeries and other medical treatments that have literally saved his life.

        Like I said, I don’t know whether John was into child porn or not. What I do know is that ass-clowns like you who spout off about things they know nothing about deserve to be publicly called out and exposed for the fools they are.

      • John Tighe was not a nut case or wingnut “OSCAR” and you should at least spell his name right. He loved Saratoga and did not like what he saw happening to his beloved city. His issues with the Democrats for Change and some of those members connections to NXIVM led him down a rabbit hole that he has paid dearly for. NXIVM was not the only issue he had with Saratoga, he took on the housing authority and was a proponent of COLD Blue Shelters being established. He did a hell of a lot more than you the fuck ever did in your time here on earth.

        As someone has already mentioned Devens is not a mental hospital it is a medical facility that addresses both medical and mental health needs. John had diabetic neuropathy as well as cancer of his either stomach or small intestine which he needed care for.

        50000 images of porn and hundreds of hours of video is overkill even for a sex addict.

        My guess is you are a lower level Espian who was told this story by high rank after John was arrested. I remember reading several such facebook posts from ESP members like yourself after he was arrested and sentenced. It went something like this ” Oh that man was truly evil who wrote lies about us and now look what he has been found guilty of.


        • ‘50000 images of porn and hundreds of hours of video is overkill even for a sex addict.’ Is there an historical record of the date/time of the uploads? Or did they all appear at once? Its easier to imagine the latter as the job of a vicious hacker or perhaps they loaded the images over time according to the imagined pattern of a pedo; But if uploaded by increment, john would have noticed? Is there evidence that would answer this?

  • Only real scum can create the facade of an ethical organization and then use well intentioned people to strengthen such an image, only to do all of the slimy things listed here behind their back.

    Tick tock tick tock indeed.

  • A chill just came over me on an almost 90 degree day after reading all the thoughts especially when you speak thru the voice of one’s own conscience in that moment of reckoning…..

    And then I remembered another one… The ESPIAN parents of a child who may have been sexually abused by the adult child of another high ranking ESPIAN. Will you do the right thing now? How is your child doing? Do they still wet the bed? Do they still sleep with you at night? And my question to you? How do you live with yourself at night? Was the payoff worth it?

    Someone on the old SID blog used to always sign off with TICK TOCK TICK TOCK. I thought it was a neighbor or someone who had a close family member who was drawn into NXIVM or even an early ESPIAN who defected. I for one, hoped that TICK TOCK had some inner knowledge and knew something was going to go down after the 2012 TU series. Some felt TICK TOCK was like Henny Penny ( aka Chicken Little ) and this was their version of ” the sky is falling”. I never felt that way. Those bulleted points above make you realize just how deep the corruption ran, and that the TU series was not the tipping point. I think a number of things eventually came together that created the right environment for NXIVM to implode: The indictment of Frank Parlato and his dogged determination to clear his name and expose the cult, The death of Edgar Bronfman leaving the Bronfman name and any political favoritism it may have carried behind, the creation of DOS, the Death of Pam Cafritz, the elevation of Allison Mack to fill Pam’s shoes, the procuring of millenials who were not vested in ESP who were willing to testify about the crimes against them in this era of ME TOO. Plus, the defection of Sarah Edmondson and Mark Vicente and their efforts to expose NXIVM. Plus we cant forget Catherine Oxenberg’s celebrity getting the info into the right hands in her effort to save her daughter, nor Barbara Bouchey’s and Susan Dones and Toni Natalie’s continued fight against their own harassment.

    In the coming days more shall be revealed

    and i think we can all finally say


    • You have a good memory, Laura Darby, and an excellent perspective on what has gone on – and what’s going on – with NXIVM. And I have been with you every step of the way, albeit in the background, working to bring Raniere and his followers to justice. Kudos to John and Frank for being willing to take these clowns on publicly and for giving the rest of us the opportunity to help.

    • Do you not think Sarah Edmondson and Mark Vicente knew about criminal activity? Do you not think they actively participated in criminal activity. Do you not think they profited from NXIVM activity? They probably relied on the cult as their main or even exclusive source of income. Edmondson founded the Vancouver branch. What is the likelihood she knew nothing about money laundering and tax evasion? Same with Mark Vicente.

  • Wow…that is intense. Dramatic. The indictments have probably been worked out already by the authorities, in secret. So NXIV members who are the likely focus of those indictments have a sense of imminent doom at this moment. Like the Sword of Damocles hanging over their head.

    I don’t envy those NXIVM people. They have got to be freaking out. Especially since the authorities may unseal the indictments within days. Possibly even this week? The drama will dominate network news stories too.

  • Not too bad a deal if you can get it. Until it lands you in the MDC House of Horrors. Boohoo, KR. Enjoy the results of your manipulation. WE certainly are.

  • The now-familiar pic you are using is telling. I know it’s photo-shopped, but look at how few lines are on his face. That’s because he never had to work for a living, sacrifice, or struggle. His little girls waited on him with food, money, sex, unlimited sleep time, and comfort. A face tells a thousand stories.

    • – His little girls waited on him

      Proof that there are gullible suckers who can be bullshitted into anything born every minute.

    • I thought Vanguard looked his age — fairly old — in the police car pick, where he is arrested in Mexico. His facial muscles were slack, the stress lines showed, and his hair appeared to be standing on end.

      Just my observation.

        • Like the stress it has taken on you and your daughter? Enjoy what little time you have left with her. She may not get bail again with superceding indictments and her phony promise of cooperation.

          • Oh yeah…my daughter is a University student, not a pimp/failed actress.
            If you’re really too stupid to understand that I’m not Mrs Mack, and it matters so much to you, then send Frank an email and confirm with him.
            Why it concerns you so much is just fucking bizarre.
            Maybe consider seeking a mental health evaluation. The fact that you are so concerned about people you don’t know is very troubling.

          • Don’t you love it when Flowers ALWAYS takes the bait? It takes a special kind of stupid to be so thoroughly cluless. I was watching Talledaga Nights recently, and that movie is so stupid it’s hilarious and entertaining. However, while growing up I used to tease my little brother (isn’t that what they’re for?) and after a while it was too easy to get him spun up, so I backed off. I lost interest after realizing there was no longer a challenge. Same with Flowers. LOL

          • And isn’t it funny how Scoot writes these anonymous comments accusing me of being Allisons mom.
            Hey Scottie, you just admitted to being a bully as a child. Kids who are bullies have sociopathic traits and they usually have parents who are bullies, too.
            Did your parents bully you, Scott?. I’m going to guess they bullied your little brother more than you, and you were just an ass kisser who tried to get on their good side by picking on your brother.
            Some things never change.

  • Does anyone know anything about whether or not John Tighe is getting any kind of reprieve? Frank is the hero, but John was the pioneer. I don’t know for sure, but my gut says he was framed.

    • It has always been my gut feeling too. If you can’t get someone on drug charges the old porn planted on the computer will usually do the trick.

      Let’s hope someone takes a look at his case again.

      • I would like to believe that John Tighe is innocent too however, Tighe very clearly plead guilty to the charges in federal court. https://dailygazette.com/article/2015/01/27/0127_tighe

        I’m almost swayed by the narrative of the brave little guy who took on corrupt, powerful organisations being silenced and left rotting in jail for a crime he did not commit, now fighting to clear his name.

        I don’t doubt the possibility of setting people up with the planting of evidence and would like to hear Tighe’s own defence but he hasn’t anything, much less claim that the porn was planted AFAIK.

        Sometimes our heroes just aren’t

        • Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that he was framed:

          Perhaps he couldn’t afford a lawyer who could provide the kind of forensic evidence to cast reasonable doubt on his guilt.

          Perhaps NXIVM’s rumored connections within the Saratoga County and NYS law enforcement community were true. Perhaps the arresting officers were providing false testimony and Tighe knew he wouldn’t be able to fight corrupt cops, attorneys and/or judges without having the money to pay a top-notch lawyer for himself.

          Maybe faced with the reality of up to 20 years in prison, Tighe made a deal and plead guilty so he would only be sentenced to 70 months.

          • Yes I have considered all these things, hence my post. I am not prepared to do the mental gymnastics required to believe that Tighe is innocent of the charges particularly when Tighe himself or his lawyer, have not even claimed that he was a victim of a conspiracy.

            I’ve searched to find anything that supports this theory, and will probably continue to do so. I don’t expect to find anything enlightening, however.

            Knowing nothing about Tighe before I came across the NXIVM story, I am disappointed to learn that the only thing I agree with Tighe is his stance on NXIVM. The guy is just a bloated, vicious online troll.

            He is not the victim here. 400 videos and 40,000 images were found stored on his hard drive in folders marked by month and year. He was ordered to pay restitution to 3 of his victims.

            Best leave this guy out of the story. That’s all I’m trying to say, really.

    • Made my comment before I scrolled down and saw yours.

      I couldn’t agree more.

      The upstate law enforcement being so corrupt, I don’t know if the truth will come to light, but I truly hope so.

  • Sometimes the waiting for the shoe to drop is worse than the actual shoe dropping.

    If you NXIVM folks know the answers to these questions, you might consider trading your knowledge to the prosecutors for some extra freedom.

  • It’s also important to ask whether an individual can even properly respond to these questions. Allison Mack happens to be an what would appear to be an environment designed to encourage someone to flip–confined to home, limited communication, family encouraging defection, and a prospective deal with prosecutors–and nonetheless nothing has happened. Unless those indicted can think in terms of their own basic self interest, many of those questions will be utterly irrelevant to them.

    I wonder if anyone will flip.

    • I’ll tell you a story from Chicago that shows you how much pressure there can be to flip.

      Back in the Seventies Hugh Hefner of Playboy magazine had a personal assistant named Roberta Bobbi Arnstein.
      Arnstein was Hefner’s gofer.

      The Feds caught Arnstein holding dealer weight cocaine. Enough cocaine to charge her as a drug dealer.

      The Feds believed Arnstein supplied Hefner drugs to give to the Playboy Bunnies.

      They offered Arnstein a deal.
      Flip on Hefner and you do easy time.

      Bobbi Arnstein checked into a seedy hotel on Chicago’s North Side and committed suicide.

      Hefner abandoned his Playboy mansion and headed for the West Coast.
      Hefner did not return to Chicago for over 20 years.

      The US Attorney in Chicago at the time was a guy named James “Big Jim” Thompson.
      Thompson went on to win 4 terms as Illinois Governor.
      In 1988 Thompson was considered a possible VP candidate by George H. W. Bush.
      After 9-11 Thompson was named by George W. Bush to a commission to investigate the terrorist attack.

      And Roberta Bobbi Arnstein lies a moldering in the grave.

      Welcome to Chicago.
