Heidi: Nxivm is behind the harassment of my family

Heidi Hutchinson

Editor’s note: Recently, Heidi posted a story about a troubling incident that occurred at her home in Los Angeles when police, acting on an anonymous tip, came looking for her and her son. Many have agreed that it was suspicious and possibly Nxivm-related. A few have argued that Heidi is imagining a Nxivm connection.

By Heidi Hutchinson

Thank you, much! Really do appreciate all the well-wishers on this thread.

And for the naysayers who doubt this incident is NX-related, here’s why I think it could be:

1. At recent court hearings, Keith Raniere has said through his counsel what he believes: “His enemies are responsible for these wrongful indictments and THERE ARE NOT THAT MANY OF THEM.” – KAR

Keith believes, has always believed, if only he quashes his enemies, he will never be held to account for anything. He SAID as much at court in handcuffs. He STILL THINKS only these “enemies” stand between him and his freedom to continue on with business as usual.

2. The possible hands-on perpetrators of this harassment could still be on the Bronfman/Salinas payroll and/or seeking their payoff in other or additional ways.

In fact, some of NX’s attorneys such as Dennis Burke and John Sandweg, well all 22 of them, really, are at or near the climax of this shark feeding frenzy, competing to tear away the largest chunk of that Trust fund that’s going fast. Doing KAR’s bidding — destroying, discrediting those “enemies” —is still Clare’s mandate as well.

3. The harassment is not new and prior incidents from the time Kristin Keeffe left, to the period KAR was hiding out in Mexico, to harassment by the “Silver Plume Co.” aka “Anima,” to immediately following my CBC interview taped last April, before even Mack was indicted — were directly related to NX.

4. This most recent harassment is, I believe, linked to a federally-contracted caregiver agency which, as I’ve previously stated, sent caregivers mimicking NX character names and the set of characters Gibraltar sent were all very strange — attempting some sort of fraud entrapment or manipulating me into using the internet, etc. Frank Parlato witnessed these and other antics — of course, there were witnesses prior to and in addition to him.

5. This was all set in motion by NX and Mexi-NX at least months ago with these and other agencies who may have and still hope to see a payoff and have further possibly convinced other players — one of whom was caught and will be deported should I fully prosecute, which I had hoped not to have to for Karmic reasons — they will be rewarded.

Unfortunately, there might also be some perceived advantage to agencies or businesses to go along with or help. For example, some contractors prefer private-pay to govt. or insurance rates. If my son’s services are terminated and insurance cancelled over my negligence, caregivers might have to be private-paid. Three parties benefit; one, my son, loses. Without even having a Bronfman dime to look forward to.

6. Somebody on here really does not like what I have to say on here. And it ain’t just Scott and Flowers as I’d hoped. As Dr. Festinger notes: they are trying to get under Heidi’s skin. And, I’ll add, they appear to be using information only a few are aware of to try to do so.

  • Heidi, you just want to inform us or is this your life insurance for you and your family. Even though it’s often said
    that there is no karma. Do you want it to stop or do you want these people to be punished? I am for punishment.
    And I’m not one to warn. There is nothing in between.

    • I’m all for stopping it and for justice. Punishment doesn’t concern me so much except it, unfortunately, appears to be the only way to stop these criminals.

      Consider the fact that despite being close to caught time and again for the pedophilia and other crimes, KAR didn’t slow down at all but only went on to acquire more accomplices to perpetrate even greater crimes, including taking extraordinary, criminal measures to silence critics…and victims via the collateral.

      I believe that “suicide” module used on Gina was “getaway plan” B or C, etc. and IDK when it would have or might still become Plan A for others, maybe everyone in the cult, but I KNOW it’s in place. They must be stopped.

      • I agree with you. The forced suicide was probalbly revenge for Rhiannon testifying to the police,
        and he must have wanted her out of the way forever. The suicide module was the means, maybe
        even the test that it worked.

  • Heidi, who has posted information here that only a few are aware of? Sometimes I notice little things are posted here that appear to be connected to those who harassed me,(things such as the date April 20th and certain song titles) but those things could be purely coincidencal. The things you notice might be coincidence as well.

    • True, Flowers. Sometimes, often, it is just coincidence. Or someone who insists they are unrelated to NX, like yourself, has nonetheless done some research for some other inexplicable reason — such as your knowledge that I have brothers, that I once blocked Trump on Twitter, followed Clare, etc. Btw, Flowers, why do you say things to me like “what about your brother(s)?” (plural), when I have only one brother who does or whoever could possible use social media at all? I guess you’re a lucky guesser? Psychic, maybe?
      Or, considering how much in-depth research you’ve done on so many complete strangers on here, a Trollope of a troll, yourself?

      There are most certainly NX payroll plants on here periodically at least, in addition to accidental trolls, and their goal is to gag. Obviously.

      • Anyone can easily put your name in a twitter search or FB search (since you’ve provided your real name and location here) and see who you follow, and your previous posts.

        It’s not rocket science, nor does it mean I know anything more than what you have posted here or on those SM pages, which is information anyone can find….so no mystery involved with that.

        But I find it mysterious that posters here keep mentioning April 20th, and that some posters here appear to know the name I used on a previous SM account where I was harassed and bullied. Since the only way to know that is if they were the harassers themselves, right?

        And since I never told the previous harassers the actual date of the 20th, if the mention of that date here isn’t pure coincidence, then that’s some pretty good evidence to prove my case.

        • IDK how to help you, Flowers, except to say April 20th is a date that has significance for a lot of people —including law enforcement — and for people who also believe they are being stalked with no rhyme or reason — so it would probably not be wise to mention that one in your case.

        • The question here is WHY would you put Heidi Hutchinson’s name into the search of every social media platform you could think of and then come on this blog and question her about posts she made or people she followed. That is some fucked up shit right there! You have dogged Heidi in this blog calling her a liar, saying she isn’t Heidi, questioning her posts and now what’s going on? You want to be her friend? You want her to see you as a comrade because you claim you are being harassed? Don’t hold your breath Flowers.

          Heidi has real harassers who pose a real threat to herself and her child for whom she is doing her best to care for without interference. You, Flowers, have engaged in questionable behavior with your Nancy Drewing.

          • WTF
            I should be the one to say “WTF”, since your post makes no sense. I didn’t search Heidi’s name because I wanted to be her friend, I searched it because she started insulting me without any reason( before I had ever mentioned her name or replied to her) and I wanted to see if I could find out why she did that.
            Heidi may have real harassers, but she’s not the only person who does. And considering that I don’t use my real name on a SM account, and yet that account is being stalked by people who post here, is somewhat concerning.

          • Once again Flowers you have missed the point. Of course you didn’t search Heidi because you wanted to be her friend. That isn’t what was stated in the previous post. Your searching and then letting Heidi know you had searched her social media was predatory behavior meant to intimidate her. You fancy yourself a sleuth and see everyone as a liar who is out to get you. I don’t believe anyone who knows you is posting here because, I would think, you would have been outed by now – if someone was truly harassing you and following you to various sites, as you constantly tell us they are doing, they would engage. You are on the blog causing trouble for people who have really been harassed. You are perpetuating that harassment by questioning the way they conduct themselves on their own social media accounts – held in their own name. What right do you have to behave in this manner? And why would you do such a thing? Do you get a thrill in hurting others, adding to their troubles or do you have nothing else in your life?

          • Hilariously hypocritical.
            Here you are, (supposedly a person who doesn’t know me), harassing me and insulting me without any reason.

            Your post was illogical. You insinuated I pretended to be harassed to try to befriend Heidi, when the fact is that I started posting here in fall 2017, and I mentioned at that time that I was posting because of the harassment. So how could I anticipate Heidi’s posts almost a year before she started posting here? How is that logical?

          • Flowers my writings are exceedingly logical – yours, however, are not. Heidi is just the latest on the list of people who have commented here who’s identify you have questioned but your behavior toward her has been more constant since she has chosen to ignore your taunts and continue posting here. I too have been reading this board but for far longer than you and I have found you to be rude and lacking in compassion for almost everyone who comes here and says they were part of NXIVM or have had experiences directly related to the players involved.

          • WTF
            I couldn’t care less about your worthless opinions, but its amusing how you think I care.
            It’s also amusing how much YOU care about what you ASSUME I think (and BTW, my comments have NEVER been lacking in compassion for victims of NXIVM.) Here’s the thing WTF, just because you spew BS and lies, it doesnt become the truth.

          • Your continued commenting shows, despite your protestations, you care and you care a lot about what people think of you and you care that people don’t believe your stories of harassers lurking around every corner and following you everywhere you post. You have exhibited zero compassion and the fact you believe otherwise furthers the popular opinion that you’re delusional

            Toodles 🙂

  • How many people experience the loss of people they know personally via suicide?? Think about that for a moment.

    The only person that comes to mind for me is Keith Raniere. Odd or not suicide??

    There is no statute of limitation on murder!
    If it were my sister, brother or friend, I would certainly want the truth!

    I have seen cold murder cases solved some 20 years later by unusual events. I hope for all three families that these cases are solved.
    These families need real closure.

  • Heidi:
    Stay Strong.

    NXIVM is up to its old tricks.
    Raniere and Bronfman have learned nothing new and that’s why they and their Flying Monkeys must be defeated.

    Message to Pea Onyu.
    Pea, you have tried to justify the persecution of John Tighe, Joe O’Hara, Frank Parlato, Toni Natale, Rick Ross and numerous other NXIVM critics.
    How do you justify the persecution of a NXIVM critic that could result in denying paid medical care to a child?

  • I can’t comment on whether or not the harassment is connected to NXIVM or not. My comments, and all of the comments on here regarding that, are just guesses – no one commenting here can offer more than an opinion.

    I’m not sure why you think I “don’t like” what you have to say. You have no idea what I like or don’t like. I have pointed out that you have posted things here that are obviously untrue, and I’ve questioned why you’ve done so -it doesn’t mean I “don’t like” what you have to say. It means I’m puzzled over why you said things that were false.

    I wouldn’t care at all except I do know (as a fact) that there are people who have harassed me, and that those individuals are paying attention to this forum. That makes me question anything that that doesnt add up.

    But as for not “liking” what you have to say – that’s just your own interpretation of my comments – and certainly not the truth.

  • One would think that reality would have set in for the people still involved with NXIVM/ESP/DOS. The fact is Raniere has a prior fraud history, and has been less than truthful regarding his genius and talent levels, even by his own attorneys admission in an interview on TV. Eventually, even the most dedicated family members come to see fault in their kin. It almost seems that those continuing to fight now are either irrational or they are being leveraged out of fear. I can’t think of any other way they could possibly explain it.

    And what kind of reputable person or organization builds itself by discrediting others (besides NXIVM or Scientology)? Most people avoid those types of personalities in their day to day lives, let alone belonging to one…

  • IMO, action is karmic when it is done unconsciously.
    If you have full acceptance of all aspects of the life situation (meaning one has accepted the anger, resentment, etc., as if it will be there forever), and determine your action from a deep place of inner knowing (instead of superficial thoughts & emotions), there is no karma created by action taken, even if that action could appear on the surface to harm someone.
