NXIVM releases new pro-Raniere video on YouTube – many new photos here

"He is our Vanguard and we do what he says."

NXIVM has released on Youtube a 24 plus minute documentary on Keith Raniere [editor’s note: The video has since been made private].  It makes no mention of Raniere’s arrest on sex trafficking charges.

The late Pam Cafritz speaks of how great he is….

Some of the footage is a few years old – since we find a healthy Pam Cafritz appearing in the video and Barbara Jeske at V-Week. Both women died of cancer.

Jeske in 2014 and Cafritz in 2016.


We get a close up look at that physique of Keith Raniere – sprinter, judo champion, guide to women on 800 calories diets.

We also get a little word salad from the mouth of Raniere.

Profundis Bullshitis

Here’s an sample:

“It’s not how far to push it’s how you push. If you push in such a way that is not forceful but through inspiration people will find their own boundaries. I think I’m more like a tour guide. I point to the journey a lot and as people become more aware of the beauty and the nature of the journey and the changes that happen, they become more self reliant and they realize that they are the self-educator, that they are in life and seeing life as a teacher and in a sense they both teach and are taught.”

The first 11 minutes of the video is about Tourette’s syndrome and the claim that Raniere’s technology has cured it in several cases.

The second part is “Who is Keith Raniere?”

Raniere with Richard Mays

Richard Mays former Arkansas Supreme Court Justice appears and praises Raniere.

Does Mays stand by his Vanguard to the end? Will he be a character witness for the defense?
Mmm.. Will be beg Clare Bronfman to remove him for the video?
11:39. Nicki Clyne and Vanguard.
Look at that athlete’s body. 11:36. the voice is Daniela Padilla


11:46. Daniela Padilla is walking with him.
11:48 Raniere with the late Barbara Jeske
24: 29 Lucas Roberts and Diana Lim
24:31 The image of Maurice Ashley is used. (African American gentlemen) Chess grandmaster who was just on the Trevor Noah Show. Is Ashley OK with his image being used to support a sex slaver cult?
24:35. Angel, [Name redacted], Jim Del Negro, Mike Baker, Adrian Fernandez
24:37. Sean Craney, Leah Lim, Samantha Le Baron
George and Delores Wilson – who are suspected to be standing ready to put their house up as bail for Raniere – are filmed in several places adoring their Vanguard.
Many, many Mexicans are featured because likely they are still loyal to his holiness.
Certain people featured will likely be very unhappy about being used as though they are still supporters. Like Mark Hildreth for instance.  NXIVM included people who have defected, seemingly fraudulently suggesting these people are still supporters. Bonnie Piesse appears from years ago. Hildreth appears in several shots.
Very dishonest.
Nancy speaks of his greatness
There are no credits at the end of the video. I thought they believed in appropriate tribute for effort.
I suspect Juan Lopez Fons and possibly Sahajo Haertel were part of the editing team.
With Clare Bronfman on house arrest was [redacted] behind financing this video?
Pat Maloney lauds his Vanguard.
Nancy, Keith, Karen, Lauren
The intensity of a Vanguard
Dishonestly using clips with Bonnie Piesse, who has publicly broken from Raniere, without disclosing she left him amid accusations of his being dishonest. Mark Hildreth is also here and he reportedly left in 2017 – allegedly unhappy with Raniere – although he has made no public statement one way or the other.

Those were the days my friend. Vanguard teaching a group of primarily women. They hung on his every word.
Teaching the beta males how to be cuckolds athletes.
Busy solving the world’s problems



At V Week before the numbers dwindled

  • Also I see Nancy in the middle lower section sitting close to Padilla… If you already knew this please forgive me for wasting your time.

  • You can see Emiliano with Ludwika on the large group photo. I don’t know if you’ve seen them yet. He’s in neon yellow and black. If you start from lower left, count 6 heads over to the right and about three heads up.

  • The tech people find amazing, good and life changing was questioning why they do the things they do? Why they believe what they believe ? Who they are as an individual? Really?!?

    I thought intelligent people always did this. Apparently many people just follow, take a position based on mom or dad or their favorite actress. If this is society God help us all. Or a higher power. Or your favorite actress if that works better for you.
    Geezus I need to start a cult.

  • I guess they didn’t like my comments about van panzy pus-pus on youtube. The comment section for this video is now disabled.

  • Not to be unkind, but I wonder if KAR has Bell’s Palsy? The left side of his mouth droops down incessantly. And Allison shows a bit too much gum, a large nose (not a bad thing in my book), an overly prominent chin, and thick calves/ankles. If K&A (insert picture of brand here) were kind of spirit, no one would care and we might even in that case find these minor imperfections endearing. She was a pretty blonde girl, who won lots of hearts with her “then” personality and talent.

    But ugly is as ugly does. Stealing, raping, deceiving, enslaving, lying, blackmailing, bullying, persecuting, and maiming. Ugly.

    Are y’all having fun now?

    Was it really worth it? You could have had it all, without the mayhem!

    • Women are naturally endowed with the potential to have a far more pleasurable sexual experience than men if they can get there. Men are more easily aroused and desire to have it more frequently, but women can have much better sex.

  • We made most of the video after Keith was unfairly arrested and before Clare was unfairily arrested. It was to show the world and the giovernmenr that they had made a huge mistake. But the DOJ is so corrupt they don’t care.

  • This guy is/was just a professional bulshiter, and sooo many people caught in his stupid web, specially women, doing everything for him, giving their lives up for him. And he is just talking bulshit all the time. It’s so ridiculous when you think about it…

  • Fuck Mark Hildreth. He is a chicken shit pussy who wont say anything about NXIVM because of course he knew about bad stuff in the cult. If he does not like being in this video, he can express it. Why are these people silent? Because they don’t want people to know the full extent of their roles in NXIVM and what they knew and did. Absolutely zero sympathy for them all.

  • I see 2 possible purposes of the recent video:
    1. This is a promotional video meant to sway public opinion in light of the damaging claim he’s facing.
    2. Nexium is dead and this is a eulogy left for believers to put their experience with Nexium into a positive context.

    • True, or it could have been released as a warning shot across the bows of those members and ex-members, who could be potential witnesses, for the prosecution. Just a little reminder, you could call it ‘positive collateral’ of the evident joy and engagement in nxivm shown here. I’d feel very uneasy if i were in that video but had left that organisation. Like my right to give witness against something I first thought was good but came to understand was very, very bad, had been tampered with and it has with this PR exercise, in the same way they use the Dalai lama despite his misgivings.

  • How pathetic to use a young girl in this video and to prey upon a child and the parents emotions. When you have a disabled child you will do anything to help them. If this was not a scam then why not have a legitimate Doctor back up this miraculous cure? The more I see of the MLM scamming and the emotional scamming the more I feel for the victims which at this point are everyone but Keith at some point or another. That does not excuse what these women did yet would most of them have ever done an illegal or immoral thing if their lives had not crossed paths with F####### VANFUNGUS?
    Is there a date that this video was created? If so I missed it.

  • We all miss Keith. The Keith we thought he was. Now we have uncovered another Keith that should not stay unpunished for his crime because of our attachment to the Keith we thought he was. Yes this man did very good things in the world but equally he did horrible things too, and that should be taken into account. This video only depicts one side but what about the other side? Why does he still needs to be seen as a savior when he is not. Why can’t we and they be in reality about that? I wonder… Personally I am ready to see him for who is he. Just a man with great quality and great flaws.

    • Still me – I am sorry for your loss. (Learning we’ve been deceived is a bona fide trauma,) The Keith you thought he was, never existed. There is NOT another Keith – only one: A trickster. He gave lip service to doing great things, but all was geared towards his personal self interest. He did NOT do good things in the world. He is NOT a man of quality with flaws. He is a mild mannered, glib, bright but vicious sociopath in sheep’s clothing. Very effective, and very sad for those who wanted to believe the best.

      He MUST perpetuate the myth that he is a savior – something special – or the truth will surface: He has accomplished nothing at all, and is in fact unremarkable. I doubt he is even capable of being self sufficient. He excels only at taking others’ money, property, sexual favors, hope, dreams, and souls. He is a thief.

  • About the video: This is all true. ESP was AMAZING and it changed my life positively in SO MANY WAYS! But that DOES NOT excuse the fact that there was ALSO a MASSIVE abuse of power that led to the destruction of SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL. I wish ESP still existed but with a newer and better leadership if a leadership at all. I believe that Nancy and Keith and whoever is responsible for the damages caused should be held accountable. Because that would only be consistent with the core philosophy of ESP before ESP became a weird cult.

    • When a cult teaches you on day one that they are not a cult, that makes them a cult. People would join to do courses and then they would be sucked in further. The questions were designed to identify characteristics in people who they could bring in deeper. They wanted to sap people of their money and separate them from their families. The leader was exposed as a pedophile rapist and morons stayed with him. Many knew about tax evasion too which is a crime. The further along the striped path you were, the more unethical and illegal activities you were more likely to know about and/or participate in. Hence why people on this site know Kristin Kreuk for example is full of shit, which is why she is being spoken about a lot.

  • “I think I’m more like a tour guide. I point to the journey a lot and as people become more aware of the beauty and the nature of the journey and the changes that happen, they become more self reliant and they realize that they are the self-educator, that they are in life and seeing life as a teacher and in a sense they both teach and are taught.”

    What a poor analogy he claims of himself. A tour guide knows the point of the journey. He knows the right path to take because he knows where the it leads, i.e., the destination. Raniere only got people lost, molded their boundaries according to his own, made them more dependent upon him so that they would keep them coming back to him for his “guidance”. He is like a guide who tells people to follow him but keeps them going in circles which lead nowhere.

  • In the pictures of him walking in white t-shirt you can clearly see he has bigger boobs than the person next him. Probably where he stores his sprinting power. It sure isn’t coming out of those fat legs
