The woman who, on her Twitter bio, called herself a “World Citizen”, and who wrote she is “Working for a safer, more humane world – inside and out,” may soon be working to save herself.
Sara Bronfman has deleted her Twitter account.
This is justice — for many worked to make themselves safe from her attacks, to save themselves from her brutality – and the millions of dollars she placed in the hands of a monster named Keith Raniere.
In her ignorant, brutal, reckless “world citizenry,” she used her fortune to destroy – to make people paupers – people who worked hard for their money – and to criminalize them – while she sat aloof and pampered herself and Tweeted vacuous drivel.
Here is a sampling of Sara Bronfman Tweets:
YES! @TheBabyExpert Why we Need to be More Tolerant of Toddler Tantrums
Something to think about! 😉 @brainpickings “Behind the cotton wool is hidden a pattern… the whole world is a work of art… there is no Shakespeare… no Beethoven… no God; we are the words; we are the music; we are the thing itself.” Virginia Woolf

So true! @DrPriceMitchell RT @MindShiftKQED: “For classrooms to be cultures of thinking for students, schools must be cultures of thinking for teachers”
#WednesdayWisdom@richardbranson When I was late as a teenager my father asked me: “Is your time so much more important than everybody else’s here, that you can so casually be late?”
Indeed! @AdamMGrant …We often mistake vices for virtues. Steve Jobs succeeded in spite of his cruelty, not because of it. Every great leader has flaws. What defines a truly good leader is the humility to recognize them and the courage to rise above them.

S<3 @DalaiLama A sense of contentment is crucial to being happy. Physical health, material wealth and friends contribute to this, but contentment governs our relations with them all.
Sources tell Frank Report that Sara’s Twitter account was managed by Sylvie Lloyd, a longtime NXIVM member who is married to John Fox, another NXIVM member. The couple left Albany recently, reportedly leaving the jurisdiction of US courts.
Lloyd, a citizen of the UK, married Fox – a US citizen. It is suspected – like many NXIVM marriages – that the marriage was arranged for her to secure a green card. With more indictments on the way, Lloyd and Fox might be seeking to avoid indictment themselves and to distance themselves from NXIVM.
NXIVM Proctors often asked students, when they did something curious, “What does it mean?”
What does it mean that Sara Bronfman deleted her Twitter Account?
Does it mean that, because her notoriety as one of the primary financiers and High Rank members [she wears the Green Sash] of a cult whose leader blackmails and brands women, she decided it might be better to lower her profile?
What did it mean when, a few years ago, she blithely signed on to numerous lawsuits and funded them?
I will never forget how Sara Bronfman changed my life. I had recovered for her and her sister, Clare, some $26 million in real estate in Los Angeles they were being swindled out of – under the guidance of Keith Raniere. Instead of rewarding me, as they agreed, they allowed the monster to fire me – and then reneged on their deal. I could have tolerated the reneging, but they turned again to rend me. Sara and Clare sought to destroy me – with perjury.
I will never forget the day I was told by FBI Agent Tom Provost – January 4, 2012 – that Clare and Sara Bronfman filed a criminal complaint against me for fraud. The US Attorney in the Western District of NY – doing the Bronfman sisters’ bidding – refused to listen to my side or to examine documentary evidence that showed the Bronfmans perjured themselves.
So I dug in deeper. I outlined racketeering and financial crimes – the same ones NXIVM leaders are now being charged with – back in 2015 – to the Western District – but they had no interest. They had decided to indict me before they even began gathering evidence.
Any evidence that pointed to my innocence and Bronfman-Raniere guilt, they were not interested in hearing. Sara sat plump in her mansions, thinking she was untouchable while paying lawyer William Savino to collaborate with Assistant US Attorney Anthony Bruce to get me indicted.
Too bad the Western District would not listen to me then. A lot of women would not have been branded and most of the sex trafficking would not have happened. There are many women, many victims who may one day hold the Western District accountable.
I had to go on the offensive in the public. The story is well known now. It has been reported in the media. Catherine Oxenberg detailed it in her best selling and riveting book “Captive.”
I wrote some 1,800 stories about the Bronfman-Raniere crime organization and finally – with the help of other people damaged by Bronfman-Raniere – the world found out.
And Clare Bronfman and Keith Raniere [and others] now face several criminal charges themselves, with more on the way. Now, Sara may also be facing charges.
Maybe that’s why she deleted her Twitter account.
She was born with all the money she would ever need. She has six nannies to care of her two children. She has mansions in France and England and Albany. She has a luxury apartment in New York. She never has to fly to any of them but in a private jet. Never had to work a day in her life. Even the work of maintaining her Twitter account was done by another.
She could have been welcomed in any society of elites in the world. Could have used her money for noble charity. She could have afforded even to lose the $26 million I got back for her and her sister and it would not have changed her lifestyle an iota.
What she couldn’t afford was to be a follower of Raniere. No one can afford that. That destroys everyone.
It should also be noted, that in addition to deleting her Twitter account, her website, Sarabronfman.com, is deleted – or at least walled off from the public.
When you visit, it says, “Forbidden. You don’t have permission to access/ on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”
Up until recently, Sara Bronfman, on sarabronfman.com, let the world know this about herself
Special Envoy for Humanitarian Aid
Independent Libya foundation (ILF)
Libyan Chamber of Commerce – United States
Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Professional Coach
Co-founder, Ethical Humanitarian Foundation
Chair and Co-founder, World Ethical Foundations Consortium
Sara Bronfman has always genuinely been concerned for the welfare of others.
Growing up in different parts of the world brought with it unique lessons in humanity: exposure to a number of cultures and contexts would help Sara relate with people beyond race, culture, religion or socioeconomic background.
Through the years, critical formative events led to her determination to ﬁnd a way to make the world a safer, more humane place—speciﬁcally, to ﬁnd solutions to war, violence and injustice. This conviction fuels her path and has brought her to be involved in the business, social and humanitarian endeavors she is today.
In September 2002, after studying both in the US and abroad, interning with NFPs and NGOs and engaging in successful entrepreneurial endeavors. Sara discovered Executive Success Programs, Inc., earned the prestigious positions of Director of Humanities, Regional VP and Professional Coach. Through her training with ESP and her personal and professional development, Sara gained a deep understanding of:
The mind-body connection, human behavior, and human psychodynamics Language, communication, and emotions
Practical tools for achievement, success, goals, inspiration, and motivation
Systems theory and organizational development
Personal and professional ethics
Sara inspired the creation of the World Ethical Foundations Consortium (WEFC), a highly directed non-proﬁt initiative dedicated to furthering compassionate ethics. Their efforts garnered the support of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, among other Nobel laureates and dignitaries, for the WEFC’s initial, high proﬁle events.
Today Sara is still fueled by the hopefulness and sense of purpose of her youth yet equipped with the tools and perspective to be a real catalyst for change. Having grown up in a family of change makers, Sara continues the family’s philanthropic legacy. However, while her family has typically focused on Jewish causes Sara, often together with her sister Clare, seeks to ﬁnd innovative, cause-oriented ways to promote the welfare of all people – supporting individuals and organizations promoting ethics, the ethical use of resources, and humanitarianism…..
I suppose it is right and fitting she took these lies about herself down, and stopped Tweeting innocuous Tweets that sound like she is a sharer in the joys and noble aspirations of a humanity she never participated in.
She may also have another decision to make. One that ties in inextricably to her money – and her using money to buy injustice – and its corollary – to postpone justice. Does she try for exile in France – try to buy safety in Libya – or surrender in the US, stand trial and probably go to prison – for a time?
I am pretty sure she’s moving assets offshore – rearranging trusts like her sister did with Goldman Sachs – weeks prior to her indictment. But it may avail her nothing. The US Attorneys Office for the Eastern District of NY, unlike the Western District of NY, is not interesting in doing the Bronfmans’ bidding. They don’t care about her and her wealth. The Eastern District is descending like an avalanche on Bronfman criminality. They will pluck her like they did Raniere.
Nancy Salzman has already flipped. Nancy will likely try to save herself, her daughters, Lauren and Michelle, and son-in-law, Ben Meyers. And Nancy knows a lot about Sara Bronfman.
What does it mean that Sara Bronfman deleted her Twitter account? I think it means she’s in trouble and she knows it.
This world citizen may be a citizen of Brooklyn sooner than she would have ever thought possible a few months ago.
From heiress with everything to criminal in prison – it could happen.
His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.
His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg; “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson; “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.
Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries, 'Seduced,' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Parlato has appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
