Heidi: On Joe O’Hara, John Tighe and Frank Parlato — ‘In the interest of justice, Scott – STFU’

By Heidi Hutchinson

In reply to Scott Johnson (@ScottTexJohnson).

There was a website, Scott. A blog, in fact, that covered corrupt NY politics and NX down to publishing pics of NX insiders and celebs deal-making and partying with the likes of Sir Richard Branson at Necker Island.

The blog was called “Saratoga In Decline” and run by a gentleman named John Tighe (While John ran the blog, it was Joe O’Hara who worked behind the scenes to translate legal documents and feed information to John).

John Tighe is now serving time in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession of a single piece of alleged child pornography “found” on his computer by a cop working closely with NX attorneys, impostor computer “consultants” and the aforementioned corrupt politicians to bring bogus computer trespassing charges against NX enemies including 2 major news reporters, one of whom broke the 2012 story exposing Keith Raniere as a pedophile.

Another publisher and blogger in Niagara Falls, NY, who also criticized both corrupt NY politics and NX, is now also under indictment. His name is Frank Parlato. He could be going to prison if he doesn’t admit guilt for a crime he did not commit. He could be going to prison even longer if convicted by a jury. As some sadistic person named “Reality” recently mentioned on here, there’s only a 3% chance the Feds will lose if Mr. Parlato refuses to admit wrongdoing and goes to trial.

Joe O’Hara, who served out his prison term, supported both these excellent bloggers including assisting them and many others with his legal expertise. Joe served 2.5 years in prison on trumped-up charges after being falsely indicted by NX twice on charges that were dropped. Frank’s false indictment on charges brought by NX was dropped but, now, superseding charges have been brought.

If whichever of your abuse induced, dissociative multiple-personalities reads this could please inform all your other split personalities here on FR of this previously published information, I think that will help clear up some of these misunderstandings about Joe and what he and Frank and so many others so miserably failed to do to deserve your relentless punishment in their humble pursuit of freeing themselves and other victims.

To this day, Joe is helping Frank, all of us, when a lesser man would have done his time, learned not to fuck with Psycho shysters backed by corrupt NY politicians scrambling after campaign donations, kickbacks and other favors from the wealthiest, most influential families run amok on the Continent — the Bronfmans and Salinas’ — but not St. Joseph O’Hara. He’s still here to help his friend Frank beat the odds and win and avoid the same unjust fate that befell him. It’s a fate that awaits anyone in Mexico who oppose anyone wealthier than themselves. — a fact well-known and widely reported in most parts of the world besides Mexico.

If any one of your personalities has any interest in fighting corruption of the Justice system in this country, please ask that personality to tell the others to STFU. In the interests of Justice and being such a good friend of Frank’s, Thank you!

  • My Godson rang me with the news about Frank from your post. Just read through posts of yet more facile attacks on you nxians. WTF?

  • With all due respect to Heidi, she really seems to think and talk about Scott Johnson a lot.

    Methinks she might have a secret crush on him, just like a 6th grader who picks on a boy she likes because she can’t admit her crush out loud yet.

    Seriously though, it’s kinda creepy how much Heidi thinks about Scott.

    It’s also funny because Heidi claims that Scott’s a huge troll, along with Flowers too, yet she does little else except ‘feed’ these so-called trolls which makes no logical sense.

    If Heidi believes they are trolls then she wouldn’t keep feeding them so much. Methinks Heidi might be just as prone to excessive drama as she claims Scott and Flowers are.

    This is a fair comment for this particular thread, Frank. It’s based on real observations. If you doubt me, try counting up the number of posts where Heidi refers to Scott or Schlock or Flowers in some manner. You’ll see it’s a huge number.

    I hereby challenge Heidi to not talk about Scott for 7 days, assuming she can manage not thinking about him for that long. I’m guessing she’ll fail this friendly challenge. lol.

    • I have a better idea – how about Flowers and Scott stop throwing stones Heidi’s way. She’s just playing defense to their offensive remarks and Flowers’ never-ending questioning of her identity.

      • I question your identity as well, Better Idea.
        Can you prove you’re really him/her? Have a photo ID in that name?

        But seriously, I just think Heidi should use an email address to post (she can use a fake one) and that way imposters can’t post using her name.

          • Toni and Joe haven’t harassed me…nor do they post lies here, but whoever uses the name Heidi has blatantly lied a number of times.
            Why? What’s the point of posting lies that even Frank confirmed were lies?

  • OCD….don’t let that asshole dictate what you should do. Just skip right over him. He is just like anyother bully in the school yard.

  • I read in one news account Tighe had 450 video files of young girls of a pornographic nature.
    I don’t know what is true and what is lies.
    Different sources are claiming different things. Some have sources some do not.
    Some sources it’s said are compromised.

    Honestly it makes forming an opinion difficult and why I say the charges against these people are far from a slam dunk.

    It’s especially difficult when victims are also perpetrators that were on the other side and made money there.

  • “In the interest of justice, STFU.”

    WTF? Are you suggesting that Scott’s comments on this forum (or yours, or mine, or any other commenters) have any effect on what law enforcement does?

    If it was your intention to suggest that (it’s getting difficult to understand your agenda, so I’m not sure) you surely must realize that is not a real possibility, and I wonder if perhaps your comment was another attempt at satire?

  • I read Saratoga in Decline for many years, and I miss it. It was bold, courageous, and in your face. It appeared at the time to be one man’s voice (John’s) against a horrible, corrupt machine (NX) and an uncaring law enforcement community. I did not know until now that Joe was helping behind the scenes.

    John (and as I read here, Joe) finally paid the price, The creatures were able to inflict pain on them, no doubt smirking at their success. But today, the chickens have come home to roost. May KAR and company enjoy reaping what they have sown. Perhaps some self reflection is taking place, but I doubt it. More likely there is a sense of outrage among the spoiled, heartless, entitled bastards now under arrest.

    It’s terrifying to realize that ordinary citizens can be punished merely for revealing information and speaking out. THAT was the former USSR, not America. Before the current advent of spin / biased media, expose’s and speaking out were the main job of a Reporter. Largely, we don’t have them anymore.

    All this is deadly serious, and that’s why nasty, juvenile comments really have no place here. They trivialize what has happened and what is now happening. I have waited silently for decades to see KAR pay for at least some of what he’s done. The day is here.

    Thank you for spotlighting Saratoga in Decline.

      • Such as what, specifically? Publish suspicions and get sued for it? Or killed for it? I am done with this blog. Scott will never stop the attacks. Signing off. From now on, I read only.

        • It’s quite obvious this blog has quickly become the Frank and Scott show, and unfortunately I don’t see this changing because Frank’s refusal to ban Scott Good luck with this Frank. I thought I once read where the new rules of commentary were meant to restrict comments to 2-3 per person, per blog post – less is more. That rule turned out to be quite a joke.

        • I didn’t say anything about “suspicions,” that was only you. Tell everything you know about Raniere and NXIVM, facts, what you observed, your opinions, etc. I’m glad our Founding Fathers acted instead of being so scared that they did nothing. But you’re willing to throw it all away because you’re too scared to do anything except read. Courage isn’t doing something because you’re not scared, it’s doing something in spite of being scared. You won’t be missed, you’ve added very little of value. Reading only is your best path, let the Patriots and adults run the comments section. Good riddance.

        • I really hope you keep commenting OCD because if you stop it gives the people like Scott Johnson et al the power and it’s not right. People did try to expose NXIVM for what it was and either no one listened or their voices were silenced by intimidation. Your comments are thoughtful and valuable and help to support the people here who deserve to be lifted up.

          • I agree, of course. Losing Orange’s flavor on here is almost as tragic as Heather Anne’s disappearance.

        • Please stay OCD. Please!?! You’ve continuously offered wonderful insight from the brief time I’ve been here. It would really be a shame if you left. It’s not the same without you. Come to Milwaukee and I’ll pick you up at the airport and we can grab a martini 🙂 Just trying to lighten your day. Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy New Year. Cheers! Tom

          • Thanks, all. I will try to continue to post – I just got riled up, because I think reading and posting here are in fact “doing something,” if only to make information public and get the word out. Without it, a lot of people would never believe all this. This blog is, in a way, a little piece of history and we should therefore moderate the stone throwing. Just my opinion.

            Also – what happened to John Tighe is a real sore spot with me. The fact that NX effectively shut him down was appalling to me, as was his subsequent arrest for what I firmly believe was planted porn. At the time, I thought Raniere was just a bully, just trying to preserve his money and sex streams. I was wrong – there are so many crimes that were not apparent until now. Until this blog and the arrests came along, I thought there was no hope of ever stopping Raniere.

            The whole thing goes beyond NX and Raniere. Whenever there is government or law enforcement corruption and complicity with criminals, causing people to be silenced and indicted, we should be paying attention!

        • OCD – I would rather read your posts than the braying of that jackass Scott. Please don’t give him the satisfaction of driving off another poster. He’s attacked me too at times – I generally flip him a verbal bird and walk away. I find the compassion you have expressed for the victims much more compelling than any of his usual bluster which generally seems aimed at pumping up his own self-righteous ego without regard for others. That’s a characteristic he shares with the mighty (not so) Vanguard. Chihuahuas gonna bark, jackasses gonna bray… I hope you continue posting despite the noise.

          As for Scott… I have given the FBI everything I could remember that might be of use to them in prosecuting Raniere. I don’t owe you or anyone else anything.

  • My comments are in brackets. []

    There was a website, Scott. [There are millions, perhaps billions, of websites. How do you expect people to find Tighe’s website? There are a lot of nutjobs with websites, how do you expect people to believe what was on Tighe’s website? The answer to both questions is people working together, and not just Tighe and O’Hara. Frank is a publicist, even he admitted his website didn’t get much traffic until the New York Times story broke a little over a year ago. As i stated in the comment you referenced and ignored (among many other issues in that comment and most other comments i’ve made), “People should have joined Joe, not put him out front as a single, “point man” target. See women/beta males comment above. Same with Frank.”]

    A blog, in fact, that covered corrupt NY politics and NX down to publishing pics of NX insiders and celebs deal-making and partying with the likes of Sir Richard Branson at Necker Island. [And where were all of the people coming forward, contacting their elected representatives, media outlets, etc.? Do you really think the world revolves around upstate New York?]

    The blog was called “Saratoga In Decline” and run by a gentleman named John Tighe (While John ran the blog, it was Joe O’Hara who worked behind the scenes to translate legal documents and feed information to John). [You simply don’t get the idea that it takes more than a random, obscure website.]

    John Tighe is now serving time in federal prison after pleading guilty to possession of a single piece of alleged child pornography “found” on his computer by a cop working closely with NX attorneys, impostor computer “consultants” and the aforementioned corrupt politicians to bring bogus computer trespassing charges against NX enemies including 2 major news reporters, one of whom broke the 2012 story exposing Keith Raniere as a pedophile. [That was the plea deal, the charges were, “Tighe, a Milton resident, was arraigned in Clifton Park Town Court on three counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child and three counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child, all felonies, according to state police.

    The arrest stems from an investigation that led to a search warrant executed at Tighe’s residence Oct. 23, 2013, state police said. At the time, Tighe announced that his blog, Saratoga in Decline, was “closed till further notice,” after being served with a warrant prompted by NXIVM, a local group that many define as a cult.

    Wednesday afternoon’s arrest, however, was not about NXIVM but about child pornography, police said. Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III Murphy said police found dozens of pornographic pictures and video of kindergarten-age children on the computer.” accoridng to https://www.saratogian.com/news/saratoga-in-decline-blogger-tighe-arrested-on-child-porn-felonies/article_577159e9-3f31-54fa-b0c4-2b6e9670d2a5.html

    And Tighe reportedly took a deal because he had serious medical conditions he couldn’t afford on the outside. I’m happy the DOJ recently added another lawyer who specializes in corrupt government workers, and hopefully they will find enough evidence to prosecute some crooked ones. Who were the 2 “major” news reporters? Keep in mind the world not revolving around upstate New York comment above. Why did Tighe immediately take down his blog upon being arrested? It wasn’t related to the porn on his computer, was it? Or is this another Orwellian story like the one I unintentionally exposed about Joe’s El Paso felony conviction being connected to NXIVM?]

    Another publisher and blogger in Niagara Falls, NY, who also criticized both corrupt NY politics and NX is now also under indictment. [And we’ll soon see what happens, won’t we?] His name is Frank Parlato. [Really?] He could be going to prison if he doesn’t admit guilt for a crime he did not commit. [The court hasn’t see the evidence yet.] He could be going to prison even longer if convicted by a jury. [All of you people who stayed silent over the years can take blame if that happens, because you cowered while Frank came forward.] As some sadistic person named “Reality” recently mentioned on here, there’s only a 3% chance the Feds will lose if Mr. Parlato refuses to admit wrongdoing and goes to trial. [Statistically, “Reality” is correct, but each case stands on its own merits, as most of the 97% were slam dunks and most of the 3% were weak cases. I don’t know hardly any of the evidence that will be presented by either side, so I’m not going to take sides prematurely. To do that would be stupid.]

    Joe O’Hara, who served out his prison term, supported both these excellent bloggers including assisting them and many others with his legal expertise. [Joe needs to understand that legal knowledge is not the same thing as getting public support.] Joe served 2.5 years in prison on trumped-up charges after being falsely indicted by NX twice on charges that were dropped. [Then Joe should be singing that from the rooftop, but he’s not. In fact, he chose to write a story about being late to a private concert for a singer he likes and Nancy not offering Kathy iced tea, instead of the claim that he was set up in El Paso, TX by NXIVM. I don’t think hardly anyone else knew this until I asked Joe, recently and a couple of months ago, to talk about his felony conviction, so you’re welcome.] Frank’s false indictment on charges brought by NX was dropped but, now, superseding charges have been brought. [And if those superseding charges stick, then everyone who stayed silent for years is to blame.]

    If whichever of your abuse induced, dissociative multiple-personalities reads this could please inform all your other split personalities here on FR of this previously published information, I think that will help clear up some of these misunderstandings about Joe and what he and Frank and so many others so miserably failed to do to deserve your relentless punishment in their humble pursuit of freeing themselves and other victims. [Thanks for your self-nomination as the drama-queen of this site, but I have been singularly focused to find the whole truth, not just the bits and pieces that biased people want to share.]

    To this day, Joe is helping Frank, all of us, when a lesser man would have done his time, learned not to fuck with Psycho shysters backed by corrupt NY politicians scrambling after campaign donations, kickbacks and other favors from the wealthiest, most influential families run amok on the Continent — the Bronfmans and Salinas’ — but not St. Joseph O’Hara. [I’m happy to see that you’ve granted Joe sainthood, when was the ceremony? Why hasn’t Joe taken me up on my invitation to be on my radio show? Because it isn’t held in a courtroom?] He’s still here to help his friend Frank beat the odds and win and avoid the same unjust fate that befell him. [Joe is doing a terrific job of keeping that a secret.] It’s a fate that awaits anyone in Mexico who oppose anyone wealthier than themselves. — a fact well-known and widely reported in most parts of the world besides Mexico. [Mexico is well-known for being corrupt, we can agree on that.]

    If any one of your personalities has any interest in fighting corruption of the Justice system in this country please ask that personality to tell the others to STFU. [You can stup up, dirtbag. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing since 2005, asking others to come forward regarding MLM scams, including NXIVM. In addition to patting each other commenters’ backs about your ugly hat and horrible complexion, why not encourage them to come forward? Time is quickly running out, Frank’s trial will soon begin.] In the interests of Justice and being such a good friend of Frank’s, Thank you! [You’re welcome. Dirtbag.]
