Stories reveal dangers Catherine Oxenberg faced & other stories of interest

Here are a few stories you might have missed.

The Sun’s Emma Parry, who wrote some seminal media reports on NXIVM, including a groundbreaking story on Rainbow Cultural Garden, took an interesting spin on Catherine Oxenberg’s blockbuster book Captive.

‘IT WAS HELL’ Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg feared for her life as she rescued her daughter from sex slave cult NXIVM

“Catherine, who grew up in Britain before starring in Dynasty in the 80s, said she endured terrifying threats, legal letters saying she would be thrown in jail and feared both she and India would end up dead – as she battled against NXIVM, a dangerous cult masquerading as a self-help group…

“Catherine, 56, has now written a book called Captive about her nightmarish journey to save India – and how she and the NXIVM’s former publicist Frank Parlato risked their lives to expose and destroy the group.

“She said: ‘This was a dangerous group and I had witnessed what they had done to other people, but I also I discovered I’m the type of parent that would be willing to take a bullet for my child and I couldn’t stop…'”

Oxygen’s J.B. Nicholas – the former paparazzi turned star NYC crime reporter – also reported on the dangers of exposing NXIVM.

‘I FELT LIKE I WAS IN HELL,’ ACTRESS SAYS AS SHE DETAILS EFFORT TO SAVE DAUGHTER FROM ALLEGED NXIVM SEX CULT

“Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg says she was threatened with death and jail as she sought to rescue her daughter from a cult-like group that allegedly branded women and made them sex-slaves.

“I would receive death threats over the phone, emails — and for a long time we were out on our own against this group,” Oxenberg told the Sun, a British tabloid. “I felt like I was in hell.”

“I was warned not to go to Mexico because I would get killed,” she said, referencing the fact that the group, NXIVM, had a strong presence there. It’s also where its leader, Keith Raniere, was captured in March.

Frank Parlato, NXIVM’s former publicist who teamed up with Oxenberg to expose the group and rescue her daughter, corroborated the threats Oxenberg received…

Forward – one of the largest Jewish publications in America – revealed to readers the Bronfman-funded cult’s connection to purported Nazi past lives of leaders.

“Reporter Frank Parlato has heavily covered NXIVM, the movement whose leader, Keith Raniere, has been arrested on sex trafficking charges. Parlato reported last year that Raniere once explained to his followers that one of his duties is to purify the world of the bad karma belonging to past Nazis and make them ethical human beings. Each of his disciples were told by Raniere who they were in a past life. If the women did not obey his orders, they were told they would return to the kind of behavior they exhibited during their Nazi past.”

We can’t forget the excellent work of CBC in their podcast series on NXIVM.

The heroine here is Sarah Edmondson, as this deeply researched and comprehensive six-part podcast series dives into the horrors experienced and the courage exhibited by Sarah Edmondson, as she bravely faced the shame and humiliation of being branded – and was the only one of the DOS women with courage enough to openly tell the world of this horror and effectively put an end to it. She showed remarkable courage.

What started on Frank Report as a call for people swindled by NXIVM to contact Omar Rosales Esq., turned into national news last week.

Rosales wisely chose to name Sara Bronfman in his lawsuit and that got the attention of the NY Post, People Magazine and other media.

The Post reported

“Two former students of accused sex cult leader Keith Raniere are suing an alleged Seagram’s-heiress disciple — and she’s not Clare Bronfman.

“Bronfman’s sister, Sara Bronfman-Igtet, is instead the target of the Brooklyn Supreme Court class-action suit, which claims that she “ensnared’’ Isabella Martinez, Gabrielle Leal and others in “a fraudulent scheme nationwide” as part of Raniere’s cult, Nxivm.

People Magazine reported

A class-action lawsuit has been filed in New York against Sara Bronfman-Igtet, an heiress to the Seagram liquor fortune, alleging she purposely misled students of the controversial self-help group Nxivm whose senior membership is the subject of sex-trafficking allegations.

PEOPLE obtained a copy of the civil suit, which was filed Tuesday by attorney Omar Rosales, who represents plaintiffs Isabella Martinez and Gabrielle Leal.

The plaintiffs allege that Bronfman-Igte promoted false claims about Nxivm founder Keith Raniere, compelling them to spend thousands to attend workshops offered by Raniere, who is currently behind bars awaiting trial on sex trafficking and forced labor charges.

The plaintiffs want their tuition money back.

You know, it is poetic in a sense. Keith Alan Raniere and Clare Bronfman hired me as a publicist back in 2007, with the directive to help get the truth out about him, her, and NXIVM.

Keith fired me in early 2008 before I could do the job I started.

It took me 10 years, but I finally fulfilled what Keith and Clare asked of me – help get the truth out about them.

I’m not done yet…

  • Catherine and India Oxenberg’s story is truly harrowing. I know first-hand there were real death and criminal prosecution threats, gas lighting and other types of harassment hell going on.

    Imagine just knowing DOS had not only that damaging collateral to use against India but India herself to manipulate, even further mutilate, while Catherine desperately sought ways to free her.

    Catherine’s strength, courage and persistence in her refusal to surrender and, finally, get India safely out of this human sex trafficking, vicious girl trap — if it meant tearing down the entire evil, NXIVM pyramid itself, turning over every stone to expose it’s scheming leaders — is eye-opening and awe-inspiring!

    Her book’s entitled, “Captive” and it is captivating.

    Thank you, Catherine. And, Thank you, India!

    @Flowers 🌺 – Gee, it’s almost as if someone had just pasted in something from another website — perhaps Conrad Black’s website??? …Maybe? It’s just that little copyright thingy sure looks authentic, you know?

    Clare better get her horse whip out on all you lazy-ass TROLLS who don’t even know your shit Schtick well enough to work it WITHOUT showing your cock-rammed assholes AND getting her sued for copyright infringement when Conrad Black gets a whiff of this!

    Or, is this just another Canaprobe type fake-out on the poor little rich girls? 🤔 I see. But for what Ben Myers and Sara must paying every last one of you — except the suckers like Shadow — cant you at least write your own fucking material!!! CONRAD BLACK?! …I suppose it’s all Frank’s fault cuz you can’t edit on his site?!

    ….There was “Heather,” yes, at least one, if not untold dozens you’ve already scared or shamed away. 😪. I suppose we’ll never see “Heather” ever again.

    …Kinda like Kristen Snyder, Gina Hutchinson, Pam Cafritz, Barbara Jeske, John Natalie, etc.

    Death threats, legal threats…

    If you typed in “NXIVM” on any internet search engine years ago, even when Catherine Oxenberg was involved with the cult, you would find a ton of evidence about NXIVM’s disgusting behaviour. Years before DOS was formed in 2015 and years before DOS was exposed in June 2017 by Frank Parlato. How can anyone who knew about NXIVM pre-2017 be shocked by any of this? NXIVM dickheads knew their stupid cult took victims and defectors to court on bullshit charges. They did not care one little bit. Is anyone who knew about NXIVM pre-2015/DOS surprised by collateral, branding, death threats and lawsuits? There behaviour was hardly a secret, especially if like most people in the west, you had a internet connection.

    “NXIVM dickheads knew their stupid cult took victims and defectors to court on bullshit charges.”

    NXIVM dickheads were like Trump supporters whose leader screams fake news all the time and they simply believe him. However, the difference between Trump supporters and those who remained in NXIVM, is the latter were under the insidious conditioning of a thought reform program that imbibed into them the ideas that external people were conspiring against them and/or former defectors stole something proprietary and/or had also joined in the fight to destroy them, all within the context of a love-bombing self-help program that taught a number of good things.

    The most responsible culprits in this entire NXIVM fiasco are the inner circle members – primarily the two rich idiot sisters at the top – and local authorities they bought off who allowed the dickhead at the top to become more and more arrogant, brash, and careless which eventually lead to his downfall so there is some good that came out of it even if people were unfortunately hurt along the way.

    Are you saying these cult members actually believed they were being victimised? Are you saying they had no free will? Anyone who actually believed that does not deserve sympathy. All I think is “what absolute fucking retards you people are”. They believed that bullshit because they wanted to believe it. Same with those who join ISIS. They choose to be brain dead pricks.

    As for Trump supporters, they are interested in the man’s policies, not the man. They were always pro border security, pro Second Ammendment etc. When Trump says “fake news”, it is genuinely fake news, created to destroy his presidency and shot at re-election. The liberal press are hell bent on destroying him with character assassination. Where is this “Russian collusion”? Trump conspired with Putin before running? During his campaign? Are you aware (as was proven via Wikileaks) that liberal media were actually colluding with the DNC/Clinton campaign, having them check draft articles before publishing to spread propaganda? Are you aware of Clinton knowing the questions before the debate? Are you aware of CNN literally pulling the plug whenever a guest said anything remotely critical of Clinton? You think that is a free and fair press? Who owns the press? Why do they pay for it? Why do they push these agendas? People are sick of all the establishment bullshit. That is why Trump is in the White House. It’s a backlash and the liberal media are doing everything they can to smear him. People like Trump because the liberals/mainstream media hate him. The media ignore all his accomplishments in office, even accrediting them to Obama which is ridiculous. I don’t particularly care about Trump, I just want him to do what the people elected him to do regarding home policy. Comparing put-upon, fed-up people to brain dead NXIVM cult members is disgusting. Guess what? Maybe those who voted for Trump don’t hate women. Maybe they don’t like the KKK or Nazis. Smear campaigns and witch hunts from the establishment to unseat an elected president who was elected to say “fuck you” to the establishment just makes people hate the establishment more.

    Whenever I wonder how people could still be supporting Raniere and NXIVM, I just read comments from people who still support Trump and his enablers. Omarosa repeatedly refers to the Trump cult in her book, members of Trump’s own party like GOP Senator Bob Corker warn “It’s becoming a cultish thing,” while people who work or have worked with him call Trump a pathological liar, narcissist, sociopath just like our own Omarosa Parlato has described Raniere. Trump even has more than a dozen women accusing him of sexual assault and harassment including Natasha Stoynoff who helped write Oxenberg’s book. But it’s all ignored or dismissed as fake news, lies from suppressives, oops, I mean RINOs, etc.

    One of the most startling revelations in Catherine Oxenberg’s book “Captive” is NXIVM’s political ambitions.
    In alliance with Emiliano Salinas Raniere and NXIVM planned to take over Mexico and use it as a base to gain Global influence.
    Can one even fathom the nightmare that Raniere and his fanatical female followers would do if given control over Mexico, a nation of 120 million people?
    And Salinas has ties to Mexican organized crime.

    “Fanatical female followers” = “a lot of alliteration from anxious anchors”?

    “If given control over Mexico….” Yes, indeed, that would mean NXIVM would control both the landscaping and restaurant trades in California.

    The Daily Beast? Maybe some links to the Onion soon?

    I give you credit kind sir. Your deranged fantasies have expanded well beyond Ms. Mack.

    I recall you mentioning the “Untouchables” movie, but do you remember “The Untouchables” TV series from the 1960s, with Robert Stack playing Eliot Ness (narrated by a nearly breathless Walter Winchell)? Italian Americans were very thin skinned then, and many (Sinatra, Al Capone’s family) objected to the depiction of Italian Americans in this show. (Fast forward to the 1980s, when many young Italian Americans thought “Godfather” and “Goodfellas” were documentaries).

    It only became important when it was revealed that Mack was part of a giant crime wave involving sex trafficking, slavery, money laundering, extortion, fraud and numerous crimes.
    Who knew that Superman’s platonic friend was part off a Bonnie and Clyde crime team which had set up a sex harem near Albany New York?

  • It’s not so much that Catherine Oxenberg is so brave, it’s that the rest of them are so cowardly in comparison. It used to be virtually any mother would go to great lengths to save their child, but now when you do so you’re a “hero.” Same with Frank vs. NXIVM, same with me vs. Amway and other MLM scams. When the 3 of us appeared to step forward, it’s really the rest of you cowards taking one or more steps back, and we were out front. Glad none of you cowards were on Flight 93 on this day in 2001, or the White House or Capital Building would have been leveled.

    • Scott, there is NO comparison between you and the very brave Catherine and Frank, None whatsoever.

      You are a FRIEND of nxivm – you serve as an apologist for their worst excesses

      and you consistently attempt to disrupt this report.

      Its the only evidence of consistence and hard work you show. You are a Shill. Hope you’re employer has pre-paid you for

      your crummy effort.

      • @HAHAHA
        I’m not sure what Scotts agenda is here, but I do agree that this blog is now over run with comments from shills. That is what I meant earlier when I said these were paid trolls.
        Notice how these so-called adults continually post long, childish posts speculating about my life or sbout Shadow States life, or they basically attack the credibility of anyone who posts here regularly.
        Why? Obviously they must have some agenda besides just insulting everyone.

        • LOL.

          Hey Flowers, you do realize that *you’re the one* who came to an Internet blog (full of strangers) and began disclosing personal shit about your own dysfunctional life —- such as telling us that you’ve been gaslighted by guys (which means you’re mentally damaged goods).

          You’ve also told us that you’re an old maid by admitting that you have college aged kids. Yet at the same time, you’ve mocked Scott for being 60 years old in one post — even though you’re a fat old hag yourself, lol.

          You’ve also admitted that you’re a feminist feminazi by the content of your posts.

          You’ve also attacked nice people like Heather with horrible posts which were uncalled for. Yet you then claim victim status after doing that. lol.

          You purposely start arguments with damn near everybody, which means you’re the troll.

          You’ve basically proven that you’re a psychological wreck and in dire need of mental help.

          We’re not the ones who came to a blog full of strangers and began sharing weird shit about our lives — you are, my dear cunt.

          • Hmmm….I’ve never discussed my personal life here, freaky stalker troll. But you, being the obsessed stalker that you are, have INVENTED an imaginary life for me in your bizarre posts about me. Why so concerned about my life, freak?

            I’ve mocked Scott because of his age?? Uh ….no, I never did that , but so funny that you’re paying close attention to my posts , creepy obsessed stalker freak.

            And I attacked “nice” Heather? LMAO. Nice Heather (who is the same troll-shill who used to post as “Mom”) had just posted that she thought every person who had ever taken a NXIVM course was stupid for not realizing that NXIVM was a criminal organization, and so they should all have their names publicly posted here.
            Yeah… Heather the troll-shill seems very sweet.
            Actually, you’re probably “Heather” writing under a new name again.
            Right?

          • Scott, you forgot to mention your agenda to mock, insult and belittle all other posters, as well as your agenda to introduce a totally fake, Alex Jones-style, conspiracy theory narrative, for the sole purpose of throwing in a disruptive red herring.
            You need to add those 2 items to your post.
            DO IT NOW !!

          • Scott, have you already forgotten your Szemkus BS story, or are you trying to claim it wasn’t a conspiracy theory?

          • Flowers, Ben’s story hasn’t been proven or disproven. It isn’t my story, it is Ben’s story. I merely provided the path from Ben to Frank. Read some of Frank’s stories from last year, and consider we don’t know what we know now, and those stories were just as unbelievable. Ben didn’t have a “conspiracy theory,” he had a story from a single night at a social gathering over 10 years ago. Others have indicated NXIVM recruited at Yale. You only wish you had something interesting to add to the discussion, because of your miserable and boring life that you’ve described on this website.

          • Scott
            That’s a joke I hope.
            Ben’s BS story WAS a conspiracy theory. He invented that story for the purpose of trying to convince people that NXIVM is politically connected and that a number of Democrats had been involved in NXIVM for many years. He also claimed Stormy Daniels was involved in NXIVM, and we all know he claimed that because he was hoping to discredit her credibility with POTUS.
            I smell ALEX JONES all over Ben’s bullshit story….and isn’t it funny how Jones claims he’s been advising POTUS? Funny in a very scary sort of way…..

            By the way, I’ve never posted any details of my personal life here, other than to say I have college age kids and I live near Vancouver, and that I was interested in this blog on cults because I’ve been harassed by some type of cult myself.

            That’s all I’ve said, and everything else written about me has been written by one of the obsessed stalkers who troll here.

        • Yep. And I admire you for not falling prey to them. I know Frank is just too busy to deal with them much and also he’s a big believer in free speech. The experts say the only way is to ignore them and just keep on topic but they are sometimes just too disgusting to not notice. Indicative of the NXIVM “brand” of harassment — shock with grotesque images and words, pull “emotional triggers” (quoting Vanguard’s tech), belittle, sow discord, threaten, ostracize, black mail, etc.). Oh, but doesn’t that make us more “empowered”?

  • Mr. Parlato, you outrank all of the silly MSM “journalists”. Not only are you an EXCELLENT writer, you also know the subject well and are not afraid to speak the truth. Thanks you so much. I hope one day someone will become as brave as you and uncover the cult of Latter Day Saints.

  • Another story of interest is the Polish film “Welcolme to Life” 1997.

    The presenter who spoke English/Australian was talking about the Peoples Temple btw…

    However, I do agree with the other commenter that you sound unwell. And angry. And as if you are just now realizing that you’re grasping at straws .
    Are you going to abandon the sinking ship? I’ve heard that the rats are always the first the jump…..

    • Hi flowerpot, you congenital liar.

      The unusually eventful summer has reinforced the stark division between the supporters and enemies of the administration. And in this case, there is no point engaging in the traditional sportsmanlike nomenclature of describing the opposition as “adversaries.” They are enemies and the president would not wish it any other way. He ran for office against both parties, the lobbyists, almost all the national political media, and the politically active elements of Wall Street, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley. Keeping this in mind, it was disappointing but not surprising that the protracted obsequies of Senator John McCain became a shadow lamentation of the absence in the current president of the qualities that most of the official mourners posthumously discovered in Senator McCain. His patriotism and courage are not at issue; his flawless selflessness and judgment are less clear. It was a shameful thing to exploit a state funeral in this way, but illustrative of the fight to the political death between the all-party, multi-vocational, entrenched political establishment and the ferocious Trump movement.

      Trump has won the first three rounds, the Republican nomination, presidential election, and effective takeover of the Republican congressional delegation and party apparatus. But his enemies, in both parties, didn’t realize they were under serious threat until Election Night. With Speaker Paul Ryan and Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake departing, the only prominent Never Trumper in Congress who is visible to the public is Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, who finesses it at times, indicating that even some of those Republican officeholders with a strong aversion to Trump will at least vote with the administration as long as the president is winning. By its nature, this battle can’t lead to compromise, just as there was no honeymoon. This level of division and antipathy can be resolved only by a decisive win or almost terminal mutual attrition.

      American election campaigns normally begin right after Labor Day, and on the first day this year, there were three blockbuster events. First, the start of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court justice-designate Brett Kavanaugh identified the Democrats implicitly with the shrieking hecklers who were evicted from the committee room. And Senator Richard Durbin’s effort to stigmatize Judge Kavanaugh because he was chosen by “Donald John Trump,” who is (apparently) demonstratively “contemptuous of the rule of law,” and similar essays of enraged self-puffery by some of his colleagues, won’t fly. The softer edge of the anti-Trump Resistance knows that despite frenzied efforts to extort and suborn evidence against Trump for two years, none has been found. All that can be said in defense of Durbin’s nonsense is that it effectively exonerates Richard Nixon, an outstanding, if sometimes careless and slightly neurotic president. The Durbin Trump-moral-leprosy argument is bunk. The president’s taste can be challenged at times, but even in this war zone, you can’t remove people from office or reject their well-qualified nominees for that.

      Also on Tuesday, the Democrats fired an instantly fizzling cannon with the inevitable Bob Woodward’s customary pastiche of fabrications, unsourced misquotations, and malicious gossip. Woodward’s credibility has been impugned by almost all of the last nine presidents; his original co-mythmaker Carl Bernstein has almost battered himself into insensibility with his pronouncements in the last six months that Trump was finished because under the 25th Amendment he was mentally incompetent and then because the Manafort and Cohen cases put him into the legal self-ejection seat. Woodward, the old sniper who never dies, on Tuesday had the distinction of being called a liar by two four-star Marine generals, John Kelly and James Mattis, both among the very few holders of high public office in living memory whose integrity could not be and never has been questioned. In this toxic atmosphere they were confirmed in the Senate last year by a combined vote of 186 to 12, nonpartisanship’s last gasp, for a while.

      The United States is now like Egypt, in that the armed forces are the only respected institution left standing. A narrow majority disapprove of the president, and steadily larger majorities are doubtful of the judiciary, despise the Congress, loathe the academy, and detest the national media. In a democracy, somebody will pay for this, and it is unlikely to be Donald John Trump, the principal accuser of the others. Woodward should never have survived as an author after inventing the deathbed confession of a comatose William Casey in his nasty novel Veil about the Iran-Contra fiasco, but this time he took one for the losing team and shot himself in the head with a howitzer. Sending him into battle to win it for the Democrats two months before the election is like dispatching a small brigade of very aged arsonists to fight one of the California summer forest fires that the new prophet of the Democrats, Bernie Sanders, says was caused by this president’s opinion of climate change.

      Finally (still on the first day of the campaign), Robert Mueller accepted written answers to questions from the president on collusion matters. Inspector Javert is hanging up his badge. This is a concession that he can’t subpoena the president and has no evidence of Trump–Russia collusion and no chance of a perjury trap. The thought, expressed by many in the media, that Mueller could still hang tough on questioning of the president about obstruction of justice is, like the Democratic-media echo chamber’s joyous ululations over the Woodward drivel, rubbish. That circus has flopped; strike the tents. Day One was a disaster for the Democrats.

      Either the Democrats will win the House of Representatives and force an utterly hopeless impeachment trial on the Senate with only the ravings of Maxine Waters and the false pieties of Dick Durbin et al. as a case, or they will win the House but recognize that they have no case and leave it there after an excruciatingly futile debate; or the Republicans will hold the House and Donald John Trump will grind his heel in the faces of his rabid enemies. The conventional wisdom remains that the Democrats will win the House. I don’t think so. No president has ever run a midterm campaign remotely as determined as this president will, his objective performance in office is good — the economy, the border, and trade; his only weaknesses are stylistic, but he is a good deal more substantial and even likable than his gutter-sniping enemies.

      My uninformed suspicion is that the president has not accepted Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s letter of resignation of last May, and has delayed ordering the release of all the documents the congressional committees have demanded from the Justice Department, for a reason. The right moment for the documents is very soon. The president has made a hero out of Sessions to the Democrats, although all 48 Democratic senators opposed his confirmation and Elizabeth Warren promised vengeance on the Republicans for installing him. If Sessions repossesses his office as collusion evaporates, it will be difficult for the Democrats to change lanes again on Sessions. It would also not be surprising if something were heard in the next two months from John Huber, the U.S. attorney for Utah, whom Sessions appointed ten months ago to look into the FISA and Clinton Foundation–Uranium One matters. He would be a much more dangerous rabbit to emerge from the pre-electoral hat than the Ancient Mythmaker, Woodward.

      Trump has not got to this historic point by being the blustering and crooked buffoon portrayed by his enemies. He is a cunning and pitiless enemy. This is political mortal combat, and in evidentiary as in electoral matters, you can’t fight something with nothing.

      • Conrad Black? Conrad is calling me a congenital liar? 😂😁 You really need to learn how to properly use quotation marks!
        So you expect me to believe Trump is a good guy, who is ridding the world of corruption?
        17 years ago, Trump’s remark after the twin towers collapsed, was to brag that Trump tower was now the tallest building.
        I don’t think a normal person would ever make such a callous remark.
        The man is not normal .
        End of story, boys

        • No one expects you to believe anything reasonable. You are a gullible dumb bitch who was easy pickings for the NXIVM crowd. Go on Scotties radio show and give him a handy. It will do you both some good

          • What does Scotts program have to do with me? Nothing. You’re just trying to distract from the fact that your hero, tRump, is an abnormal creep who constantly makes inappropriate remark’s and lacks normal human responses.

            He’s not well, boys.
            Face the truth, for once .

            (Which of you will be the first to abandon ship? I bet the rats will be the first jumpers….)

          • What’s a matter, your boy bathouse barry let you down. Suck on it you worthless C*#t

            What did Obama accomplish other than raising taxes, raising regulations, doubling the debt, overseeing the worst economy recovery in history and since 1930, bombing the mid east, creating ISIS, keeping blacks in poverty, spying on citizens,weaponizing government?
            Besides a good stock market, is there even 5 accomplishments that are legit out there over his 8 years compared to Trump’s 1.25 years? Trump: Best economy since 2000 (Pre-Bush- another failure), black and Hispanic unemployment both at all time record lows, unemployment of general population lowest since 2000, Destroyed ISIS, Peace on the Korean Peninsula first time since pre-50s, got GDP back to 3%, fighting corruption, human trafficking takedown, and many more noble things. Obama is responsible for 500,000 plus deaths from Egypt to Libya, to Iraq, to Syria and beyond. What did Obama even accomplish that was “legit” like Trump’s accomplishments are other than the stock market (and Trump has kept that at historic highs too)? All of Obama’s so called accomplishments by his defenders (CNN, etc) are really disasters (Iran deal, Syria, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, ISIS, affordable care act, illegal ms-13 and terrorist immigration, food stamps, shovel ready low pay crappy jobs, selling out the US, supporting Hezbollah, Muslim brotherhood, lead from behind= weak foreign policy= world on fire, allowed Russia to hack our elections and did nothing, the only president in history not to see 1 single year of at least 3% GDP , city crime and murders skyrocketed under his tenure especially in his own home city of Chicago..

          • Canada is now experiencing the same Globalist puppetry under Turdeau. Can you imagine what N.America would look like if Hitlary was elected? I am so thankful Trump was elected and Americans are waking, the Turd will be tossed next election.

        • 👁

          @Flowers 🌺 – Gee, it’s almost as if someone had just pasted in something from another website — perhaps Conrad Black’s website??? …Maybe? It’s just that little copyright thingy sure looks authentic, you know?

          Clare better get her horse whip out on all you lazy-ass TROLLS who don’t even know your shit Schtick well enough to work it WITHOUT showing your cock-rammed assholes AND getting her sued for copyright infringement when Conrad Black gets a whiff of this!

          Or, is this just another Canaprobe type fake-out on the poor little rich girls? 🤔 I see. But for what Ben Myers and Sara must paying every last one of you — except the suckers like Shadow — cant you at least write your own fucking material!!! CONRAD BLACK?! …I suppose it’s all Frank’s fault cuz you can’t edit on his site?!

          ….There was “Heather,” yes, at least one, if not untold dozens you’ve already scared or shamed away. 😪. I suppose we’ll never see “Heather” ever again.

          …Kinda like Kristen Snyder, Gina Hutchinson, Pam Cafritz, Barbara Jeske, John Natalie, etc.

          RIP “Heather”

          • no copyright infringement ya dumb bitch. Conrad Black is credited with this wonderful factual column. Go take a long suck on a short dick you ignorant CUNextTuesday.

          • Really, Heather? You mean someone just quoted Conrad Black? Ohhh. …gee… that was a tough one to figure out. ..Thanks for letting us all know!
            What is the point of your post, and why are you using the name Heather now? Obviously you are not the same Heather who has posted previously under that name.

  • Death threats, legal threats…

    If you typed in “NXIVM” on any internet search engine years ago, even when Catherine Oxenberg was involved with the cult, you would find a ton of evidence about NXIVM’s disgusting behaviour. Years before DOS was formed in 2015 and years before DOS was exposed in June 2017 by Frank Parlato. How can anyone who knew about NXIVM pre-2017 be shocked by any of this? NXIVM dickheads knew their stupid cult took victims and defectors to court on bullshit charges. They did not care one little bit. Is anyone who knew about NXIVM pre-2015/DOS surprised by collateral, branding, death threats and lawsuits? There behaviour was hardly a secret, especially if like most people in the west, you had a internet connection.

    • “NXIVM dickheads knew their stupid cult took victims and defectors to court on bullshit charges.”

      NXIVM dickheads were like Trump supporters whose leader screams fake news all the time and they simply believe him. However, the difference between Trump supporters and those who remained in NXIVM, is the latter were under the insidious conditioning of a thought reform program that imbibed into them the ideas that external people were conspiring against them and/or former defectors stole something proprietary and/or had also joined in the fight to destroy them, all within the context of a love-bombing self-help program that taught a number of good things.

      The most responsible culprits in this entire NXIVM fiasco are the inner circle members – primarily the two rich idiot sisters at the top – and local authorities they bought off who allowed the dickhead at the top to become more and more arrogant, brash, and careless which eventually lead to his downfall so there is some good that came out of it even if people were unfortunately hurt along the way.

      • Are you saying these cult members actually believed they were being victimised? Are you saying they had no free will? Anyone who actually believed that does not deserve sympathy. All I think is “what absolute fucking retards you people are”. They believed that bullshit because they wanted to believe it. Same with those who join ISIS. They choose to be brain dead pricks.

        As for Trump supporters, they are interested in the man’s policies, not the man. They were always pro border security, pro Second Ammendment etc. When Trump says “fake news”, it is genuinely fake news, created to destroy his presidency and shot at re-election. The liberal press are hell bent on destroying him with character assassination. Where is this “Russian collusion”? Trump conspired with Putin before running? During his campaign? Are you aware (as was proven via Wikileaks) that liberal media were actually colluding with the DNC/Clinton campaign, having them check draft articles before publishing to spread propaganda? Are you aware of Clinton knowing the questions before the debate? Are you aware of CNN literally pulling the plug whenever a guest said anything remotely critical of Clinton? You think that is a free and fair press? Who owns the press? Why do they pay for it? Why do they push these agendas? People are sick of all the establishment bullshit. That is why Trump is in the White House. It’s a backlash and the liberal media are doing everything they can to smear him. People like Trump because the liberals/mainstream media hate him. The media ignore all his accomplishments in office, even accrediting them to Obama which is ridiculous. I don’t particularly care about Trump, I just want him to do what the people elected him to do regarding home policy. Comparing put-upon, fed-up people to brain dead NXIVM cult members is disgusting. Guess what? Maybe those who voted for Trump don’t hate women. Maybe they don’t like the KKK or Nazis. Smear campaigns and witch hunts from the establishment to unseat an elected president who was elected to say “fuck you” to the establishment just makes people hate the establishment more.

          • What kind of bullshit response is that? Can’t win an argument with facts? You think you and your degenerate kind are in any position to question the mental stability of others? For all of human history, humans have not been whiney liberals. Thousands of years of evolution is not wrong. Fifty years of social conditioning and brainwashing does not change that. Do you wish “transgender” people “get well soon”. Pretentious dickhead cunt.

          • He is well ya dumb bitch. Hope your President derangement disorder drives you to suicide. You would be doing the world a huge favor.

      • Whenever I wonder how people could still be supporting Raniere and NXIVM, I just read comments from people who still support Trump and his enablers. Omarosa repeatedly refers to the Trump cult in her book, members of Trump’s own party like GOP Senator Bob Corker warn “It’s becoming a cultish thing,” while people who work or have worked with him call Trump a pathological liar, narcissist, sociopath just like our own Omarosa Parlato has described Raniere. Trump even has more than a dozen women accusing him of sexual assault and harassment including Natasha Stoynoff who helped write Oxenberg’s book. But it’s all ignored or dismissed as fake news, lies from suppressives, oops, I mean RINOs, etc.

        • Get lost bitch. After president o-hole and hillary Cunton, America finally has real leadership and all the deep state opposition and the lying left wing media can suck it. After weaponizing the intelligence services against the American people, actual Americans are back in charge. Yes the evil of Obama and Hellery gave NXIVM the model from which it operated.

    • @ meh sign

      Gimme a break “shoulda known” it all!!!

      “Yellow journalism” Write-ups in the local Albany, NY papers and a couple of buried stories in “National” pubs — in fact, the “Vanity Fair” story on the Bronfman Heiresses was only printed in their European English edition — is hardly fair warning for anyone who joined NXIVM before the branding was exposed! And nothing so bad was ever told. Even the reports of Keith Raniere’s pedophilia history was buried in the Albany Times Union 2012 story series.

      NXIVM’s recruitment success also shows how wicked fast and deep these crooks sink their evil hooks into their easy prey.

      Most dillatantes like the Bronfman’s and Salinas kids have someone searching the web for them, anyhow, don’t they?

  • One of the most startling revelations in Catherine Oxenberg’s book “Captive” is NXIVM’s political ambitions.
    In alliance with Emiliano Salinas Raniere and NXIVM planned to take over Mexico and use it as a base to gain Global influence.
    Can one even fathom the nightmare that Raniere and his fanatical female followers would do if given control over Mexico, a nation of 120 million people?
    And Salinas has ties to Mexican organized crime.

    Inside the NXIVM Sex Cult’s Secret Plot to Take Over Mexico
    https://www.thedailybeast.com/inside-the-nxivm-sex-cults-secret-plot-to-take-over-mexico

    • “Fanatical female followers” = “a lot of alliteration from anxious anchors”?

      “If given control over Mexico….” Yes, indeed, that would mean NXIVM would control both the landscaping and restaurant trades in California.

      The Daily Beast? Maybe some links to the Onion soon?

      I give you credit kind sir. Your deranged fantasies have expanded well beyond Ms. Mack.

      I recall you mentioning the “Untouchables” movie, but do you remember “The Untouchables” TV series from the 1960s, with Robert Stack playing Eliot Ness (narrated by a nearly breathless Walter Winchell)? Italian Americans were very thin skinned then, and many (Sinatra, Al Capone’s family) objected to the depiction of Italian Americans in this show. (Fast forward to the 1980s, when many young Italian Americans thought “Godfather” and “Goodfellas” were documentaries).

      • Yes only laugh. Shadowperv is a pathetic creature. Never gave two shits about NXIVM until he found out his Hollywood fantasy queen Allie Wack was involved and now he is the frank report expert. Poor Frank.

        • Anyone who followed up on Allison Mack over the last 7 years quickly learned she was in the NXIVM cult.
          It only became important when it was revealed that Mack was part of a giant crime wave involving sex trafficking, slavery, money laundering, extortion, fraud and numerous crimes.
          Who knew that Superman’s platonic friend was part off a Bonnie and Clyde crime team which had set up a sex harem near Albany New York?
          Of course the Sultan of Six is part of the Cult of Mohammed which regards sex slaves, pedophilia and harems as perfectly normal.

          • – Of course the Sultan of Six

            Hey dum-dum, I’m not “Swat of Sultan” or “SOS”. That is someone else.
