Help Nancy get a better reputation and notes along the Vanguard trail

One year ago today, Vanguard was enjoying his last full day of freedom at a seaside villa in Puerto Vallarta with his slaves, Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne, Clare Bronfman, Loreta Garza and Lauren Salzman.

He was to be arrested the following morning and deported from Mexico to the USA where he was charged on a federal criminal complaint the same day.

He has been behind bars ever since, having failed at three attempts to make bail.


Magistrate Judge Scanlon’s report and recommendation is to admit into evidence everything that Keith Raniere and Clare Bronfman sought to suppress. A whole lot of evidence will therefore be available to the jury – if the trial goes forward and/or Judge Garaufis does not overrule her.

As for the evidence, as Nancy Salzman’s attorney said when she took her guilty plea:  “There is no viable defense’ to the charges.

The best, last hope of the defense was to get evidence suppressed so that the jury would not see the magnitude of the criminality of the Nxivm racketeering and sex trafficking enterprise.

Some of the evidence that now will most likely be admitted will be from the subpoenaed contents of a storage unit in Clifton Park. The unit was rented by one of Clare Bronfman’s Nxivm-member employees, but the contents belonged to Clare.

Clare has fought, with her attorney Dennis Burke, to suppress this evidence. it appears she has failed.


When asked by Frank Report, “Will Keith survive in prison”?, a former federal prisoner said, “Once he gets sentenced and is transferred to a regular prison, he’ll be at great risk if he’s in general population. Unless he puts himself in protective custody. There’s nothing worse than someone hurting a child. Sexual predators are walking targets for gang members to claim rank and move up in prison status. On top of that, he is a white guy who preyed on Mexican girls. This will make it really bad for him.

“If he became suicidal, one way to preserve Keith’s life would be ‘suicide watch.’ His attire would be a ‘turtle suit.’ It’s a nine-pound Velcro dress.  Its box-like shape will match his boxed feet.  But suicide watch is only a short-term option. No one stays there for more than a few days. I worked as a ‘watcher’ for a few weeks. No, Keith’s long term options are very bleak. If I were betting, I would bet that he leaves federal prison, box feet first.”


On a wonderful website,, Nancy Salzman’s reputation is rated. She’s doing pretty good. She is rated as solidly in the “Fair” category, neither good nor bad.
Not bad for the recently convicted leader of a racketeering enterprise.

  • Who really gives a shit how Nancy Salzman appears on a Google search. Shes always going to be a convicted felon.
    Shes always going to be known as the woman who ran the NXIVM cult with Keith Raniere. She’s always going to be known as the woman who sold her daughter’s down a criminal river.

  • Why would Raniere f*cking/raping little Mexican girls be looked on as bad in prison? Isn’t that just being inclusive and not racist? Come on, sing along! Raniere loves [to f*ck] the little children, all the little children of the world. Red, brown, yellow, Black, and white, they are precious in His sight. Raniere loves [to f*ck] the little children of the world. For those not familiar with the song, here’s a video, complete with lots of rainbows (Raniere should probably sue them for trademark infringement, except that he’s broke!):

    Editorial comment: The above lyrics were taken from the internets and the only color that was capitalized was “Black.” Should that be considered reverse racism? I suggest a new NXIVM EM be developed to thoroughly explore this question. Raniere doesn’t have anything else to do, and his lawyer should take this message to him.

  • Don’t waste your time worrying about poor old Nancy; her cancer will most likely come out of remission within a year or so.

  • Where does Salzman live now? I’ve seen hints suggesting that she might have moved in with her elderly parents.

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 prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato 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. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
