Shadow State: NXIVM’s War Against the Truth

By Shadow State 1958

NXIVM has been waging a War against the Truth for two decades.
In the Spirit of the Christmas season, I have held my fire for the last month. No More!

About a month ago on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, some NXIVM troll posted Allison Mack’s California address in the Comments section of the Frank Report in the vain hope of provoking an incident. Upon seeing the post, I emailed Frank Parlato asking him to take the post down which he did promptly.

Here is a copy of the post listing Mack’s address sans address:

To check messages, I recommend that you ask the people probably involved. No moniker in a blog!

Here is the address of Ms. Mack: Ms. Allison C. Mack. Don’t bother asking for Mack’s address. Only the DOJ needs to know that information. Shadow State

Here is a copy of the message I emailed Frank Parlato:

Frank: This morning some idiot posted this under the name Anonymous The only people who need to know this info are in the DOJ. I suspect it is a NXIVM troll trying to create another incident. Please remove. Thank you.

Shadow State

The next day, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, this comment was posted on the Frank Report by someone purporting to be Nicki Clyne.
Nicky Clyne

Ok… I admit it, bitches. I posted Allison’s address. It was all part of a scheme to frame Shadow/Frank/Thomas and have his stalking ass thrown in jail.

I’m the real Nicky, or Nicki, or Clicky , or whoever. I can verify that with a picture, which I will send to Frank, and then I will post on my private Instagram to verify that.

Indeed, on this date Nicki Clyne changed the profile picture on her private account.

“Nicki Clyne as Clicky Nine has a new Instagram profile picture. Clicky Nine’s Instagram account is private. That may be a good idea since it was Nicki Clyne’s pictures on her Instagram account in her own name that alerted me to the fact that she [and probably Raniere] was in Puerto Vallarta – a fact which I published about a month prior to Raniere’s arrest.” 

Frank Parlato’s comment on Nicki’s new profile picture.

Nicki’s new profile picture with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background.

And here is Nicki’s old profile picture which I have been told was taken at a gas station near Knox Woods.

Let’s look at  the key part of Nicki’s comment:

It was all part of a scheme to frame Shadow/Frank/Thomas and have his stalking ass thrown in jail.

Here, we finally have a member of NXIVM admitting that they frame people.

Did Nicki Clyne post this comment? If she did, I will give her credit for being honest and confessing to the scheme. It’s not easy to be honest after living in NXIVM’s culture that honors duplicity and lies. Maybe there’s some hope for Nicki Clyne yet, especially if she drops the notion of slaves and masters.

Since Nicki is as poor as a church mouse, she is judgment proof. Only stupid, greedy people like Clare Bronfman sue for the hell of it. 

Let’s look at the rest of the message purporting to come Nicki Clyne.
 “Ok…I admit it, bitches.”

I believe this is how NXIVM slaves were addressed by their masters: As “bad ass warrior  bitches”    

Nicki projects an image of a goofy, pixie-like young woman. I believe the truth is more complex.

Watch the Frank Parlato-provided video where Raniere is arrested in Mexico. Allison Mack is dazed and confused.      

Nicki Clyne is cool, calm, collected and in control.                                                                                                                                                                         Smallville’s Allison Mack chases car carrying sex cult leader – Daily Mail

Smallville’s Allison Mack chases car carrying sex cult leader – Daily Mail Smallville actress Allison Mack chases car carrying Nxivm sex cult leader Keith Raniere in Mexico. He is accused…

Maybe there is some hope for Nicki Clyne to rebuild a somewhat normal life after NXIVM.

But will John Tighe be able to rebuild his life after years in prison on trumped up charges?

How about Rick Ross who faced 14 years of litigation for calling NXIVM a cult?

How about Joe O’Hara who was arrested twice on bogus charges and eventually moved out of New York State?

How about Frank Parlato who has faced his own legal problems involving NXIVM?

How about Jim Odato who left his job at the Albany Times-Union over his NXIVM stories?

As for the female victims of NXIVM, they are too numerous to mention, but I will mention Toni Natale,

Raniere’s ex-girlfriend was sued for having the courage to leave the creep.

I will also mention Sarah Edmondson, whom Clare Bronfman tried to frame with the Vancouver Police.

Catherine Oxenberg who spent years trying to pull her daughter out of the cult.

Barbara Bouchey and Susan Dones also merit mention as victims of NXIVM.

And what about the physical and psychological damage to the dozens of women branded and treated as slaves?

  • While this is not related to the post, I’m wondering if anyone has heard from Heather Anne. Mitch noticed her absence and then more of us became concerned and have been asking also. Heather made it known some time ago that she has cancer and it seems quite serious by her words. Just wondering if Frank is able to see her email and reach out to her since he is the owner of this site? She had spoken about family too, so not sure what else anyone else knows about her . She had once said that she she was worried about Keith’s trial being pushed back further because she may possibly not be around to hear about it. Hoping she’s okay, and still reading.

  • The poster didn’t say they would change the picture on Nicki Clyne’s account. The poster said they would SEND a picture to Frank as proof and then make a post on the account saying they’d done it.

    As for the “bitches” theory – this is the single-handedly most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Plenty of people use the term when addressing a group of friends or followers on social media, as in “Ok bitches, here’s today’s agenda”. You really don’t get out much, do you Shadow?

    • “You really don’t get out much, do you Shadow?”

      Gee ya think. Anyone who has spent more than 2 days at this blog can plainly see that. Of course the guy is doing important work in his world, such as single handedly taking down NXVIM, which incidentally he had never heard of at this time last year

  • Shadow, did you consider that the person operating the Clicky Nine account (who may not be Nicki Clyne herself) read the post here that claims she will change her picture, and then changed the picture after reading that? It certainly is possible that the post was not even written by the same person who is posting on the Clicky Nine IG account.

      • I meant the account could be a fake account operated by an imposter. I’ve come across several such fake accounts over the last couple years (including one SM impersonating me, operated by the people harassing me)… you have no way to know if that is really Nicki Clyne’s account.

  • Not forgetting the families who lost loved ones. This time of the year must be especially difficult for them. I hope they will see justice one day.

      • You don’t know the motivation behind posting the address. You don’t even know who did it. The apparent stalker had already done his dirty deeds when the address was posted. You assume you know so much, yet in reality know so little. In your world, everybody was going to flip, until they haven’t. You flip-flop faster than a pancake.

        The address is easy to find online and virtually everybody is too scared to actually do anything. They won’t even join the online campaign to shut down MLM scams that are currently scamming literally millions of people, staring them right in the face, let alone travel to CA to visit Mack’s parents’ address and do who-knows-what to take action against a story that is all but over, as far as having any significant impact on the outcome. I literally LOL at the thought Mack can be turned into a “victim,” a “martyr.”

        Where were you when my address was posted? I haven’t even done anything wrong, while Mack is your favorite and almost exclusive target of virtually every crime on the planet.

        • Scott:
          No one is traveling to Texas to harass you.

          Mack’s behavior of branding and enslaving women attracts mentally unstable people.
          And incidents like the Thomas Sekera incident give Mack victimhood status when she is a perpetrator.

  • Or maybe you don’t know shit about anything. You hate Allison so much that you have to post her address to allow stalkers to try to harm her and her parents, you attacked Allison’s fans who did nothing to you and why would you even joke about her having an illness.

    As far i’m concern you need to be gone you’re wild obsession for Allison is creepy.

    Let me ask you this why don’t you think Allison won’t turn on NXIVM?

    Number 2 you know nothing about Allison?

    What sucessful marriage? It’s just a fake marriage Allison wasn’t really happy about anything in her life she was forced to do this marriage by Keith.

    So tell me Shadow who are those sources you’ev been talking to?

    you’re full of shit

    merry Christmas and seek some help

    Frank please fire him.

    • If you’re such a concerned fan why did you fail to tell her that branding women is an asinine idea?
      Why did you fail to tell Ms. Mack that operating a sex trafficking ring is illegal under Federal Law?
      And the main threat to Allison Mack’s family comes from Mack herself who falsely claimed that her 4 year old nephew was molested.

      Allison Mack’s collateral revealed: give up home, unborn children to Raniere; destroy parents & nephews for Raniere
      According to FBI Special Agent Lever,
      Mack’s collateral was described as:
      (1) a letter regarding Mack’s mother and father that would “destroy their character”

      (2) a contract that transferred custody of any children birthed by Mack to Raniere, if Mack broke her commitment to Raniere

      (3) a contract that transferred ownership of Mack’s home if the commitment to Raniere was broken

      (4) a letter addressed to social services alleging abuse to Mack ‘s nephews.

      As a NXIVM troll are you smarter than the FBI?

      You NXIVM trolls lie morning, noon and night.
      And your leader Clare Bronfman uses her financial resources and clout to try to send innocent people to prison.
      People like John Tighe and Sarah Edmondson.

      Take your “concerns” and stick them where the sun don’t shine.

      • “Clare Bronfman uses her financial resources and clout to try to send innocent people to prison.
        People like John Tighe and Sarah Edmondson.”

        Sarah Edmondson is not innocent. Being branded does not erase her direct participation and profiting from tax evasion and money laundering crimes. She is a perpetrator too.

        • Being part of a group that may have allegedly engaged in tax evasion and money laundering doesn’t necessarily mean that person engaged in them either. Also, ignorantly profiting from such activity does not make them guilty either. If I worked for Enron and didn’t know that management cheated others, the notion that I earned a salary and money from stock shares I received and sold as an employee doesn’t make me guilty for management’s misbehavior. To be a perpetrator a person has to be a willful participant in such schemes. They have to know they are breaking the law while doing so and only then can they be said to be guilty, and hence not innocent.

          • I mostly agree with you, but it’s a much better argument to say you weren’t aware of the misdeeds than you didn’t know the misdeeds were illegal. Common sense is sometimes still in play in our very corrupt judicial (not justice) system.

  • Oh Shadow we know you leaked Allison’s address for sure.

    So as far i know you still should be fired from Frank Report and no you have no proof of anything just like your so-called Allison Mack theory of being a pedo.

    • Oh Shadow we know you leaked Allison’s address for sure.

      Detective John Kimble???
      A character from the movie “Kindergarten Cop.”
      Kindergarten Cop
      Arnold Schwarzenegger as Detective John Kimble

      Who told you that “for sure”?
      Der Fuehrer Keith Raniere and his Eva Braun Allison Mack?
      Or Il Duce Alex Bertancourt and his mistress Emiliano Salinas?

      You are another NXIVM troll who doesn’t know your butt from a hole in the ground.
      No more tolerance for NXIVM lies and liars.

      When are you going to apologize to John Tighe for framing him?
      When are you going to apologize to all the other victims of NXIVM lies?

        • This is just pure paranoia.

          Tell that to John Tighe who has been in prison for 6 years on trumped up charges.
          Or to Joe O’Hara who was arrested twice only to have charges dropped each time.
          Or to Sara Edmondson whom Clare Bronfman tried to have arrested in Vancouver.
          Or to Frank Parlato who has been targeted by the Raniere-Bronfman litigation machine for years.

      • shadow you are so arrogant that you think your deductions are just because you check information that anyone can find on the network, and the worst is that most of this information is taken from this blog, and then you vomit it as if it were water spring, but it is only your point of view contaminating it. Here is something that your great investigative capacity does not know even with respect to the relationship of allison and nicki clyne. I mean the marriage arranged between these two actresses and friends, to be able to achieve that nicki get legal residency after your work visa expires, and we have talked a lot about this topic but the myoria of you who did not read this blog since at least 2016 as it is my case do not know that this story was not originally published by frank, as a result of his own investigation if not that it was something published by an exNexian in the comments section. This person made clear the following facts.
        1-the marriage took place in secret.
        2-Indian Oxenberg served as a witness.
        3-the apparent goal would be to get nicki clyne to obtain legal residency, but the objective objective was to keep allison controlled by linking her even more in the secrets of the group, and in that way to prevent her from leaving the group and keith.
        Now, taking into account that allison is known at least two relationships between his time in smallville and the show wilfred plus a long-term relationship before smallville of which is known is the reason for a tattoo with the letter p. but nicki nothing is known about their relationships, so taking some stories about her and clear and the situation of accepting this arranged marriage with her friend allison, you can deduct some things.
        1-all this was an idea of ​​KAR and managed to convince the two actresses.
        2-KAR probably supported other people like Nancy and Lauren, to achieve them.
        3-Taking into account that Allison has a younger sister named Robyn who is a lesbian and proud to be a lesbian, it is obvious that both Allison and the rest of her family would not have problems with openly acknowledging that she is lesbian or bisexual if that were the case, but Nicki has no mention of their relationships and is the direct beneficiary in this deal, so I wonder it would be possible that I also get an extra bonus in this deal that apparently makes allison risk a lot and do not win anything beyond this is to compare his mentor and allude to your good friend nicki that you can enjoy more benefits than allison.

        • I know about Ms. Mack’s lesbian sister and have deliberately refrained from discussing her because she is not connected with the cult and has committed no crimes.

          That said, whatever Ms. Mack’s original sexual orientation, she is now clearly bisexual having had relationships with Nicki Clyne and India Oxenberg.
          Moreover, Ms. Mack has had sexual relations with the slaves underneath her.

          FR: You said Allison had several female slaves. Did Allison have sexual relationships with her female slaves?
          Jane: Yes.

          Regardless of who cooked up the marriage scam, if Mack and Clyne participated in it, they are both potentially legally vulnerable.
          With the sex trafficking and enforced servitude charges already filed against Mack, the marriage scam charges are the least of her worries.

          You claim that the early 2017 arranged marriage of Allison and Nicki was designed to tie Allison closer to the cult.
          However, in 2015, Allison had already handed over considerable damaging blackmail that clearly tied her to Raniere and the cult.
          The FBI has possession of this 2015 material.

          According to FBI Special Agent Lever, on August 10, 2015, Allison Mack sent an email to Raniere with the subject titled “vow 3” and included an attached letter.
          The letter pledged Mack’s “full and complete life” to Raniere.

          Moreover anyone who watches this August 2016 video can figure out that Allison Mack is “All In” with NXIVM and Keith Raniere.
