Society of Protectors is alive and well – and so is Nxivm

Jim Del Negro

For those who think Nxivm is deader than a door nail, think again.

Only six members of Nxivm were indicted and many of the most guilty will – unless there are additional indictments – perhaps in the Northern District – go scot-free.

In an upcoming post, I will try to provide a list of those still holding Nxivm together.

The Society of Protectors is a subgroup within Nxivm, made up of Nxivm males (it is not right to call them men) who follow the wisdom and the teachings of the Vanguard – on how men should behave with women.

Some have mocked this group – but it was a lucrative business venture (Raniere kept the company in Pam Cafritz’s name) and at one time had 100s of members each paying monthly fees and taking expensive SOP weekend retreats periodically.

It raked in so much money that somehow they could not even keep track of how much and, therefore, could never quite report it to any governmental agency such as the IRS.

Some of the principle teachings of SOP was that men are naturally polygamous and women naturally monogamous – and that women should accept this wondrous gender difference and celebrate it – that a man should have multiple sex partners – that it is natural and biologically right.

While the woman must – it is imperative – be faithful to only her man.

Another teaching is that women are spoiled; pampered princesses and that men take all the hard blows in the world while women skate by claiming to be victims when they have all the advantages.

Yet another teaching – promulgated by the Vanguard himself – he practiced what he preached – is that if a man ejaculates on a woman – he has marked her as his own [much like a dog spraying.]

The woman so marked then belongs to the man gracious enough to provide his ejaculate upon her.

Jim Del Negro, (in light blue shorts and black muscle shirt], the august head of the High Council of SOP, with SOP men and Jness women at Vanguard Week.

(I have, thanks to a former SOP student, a secret recording of Keith Raniere giving the entire secret SOP curriculum – it is something like 8 hours of the Vanguard teachings for men. I once tried to post it on but Keith filed a copyright infringement claim and Youtube deleted my recording. Happily, I have ample backup copies. In fact, through an attorney, I provided a copy to law enforcement for their delectation and edification.)

Yes, it was quite an attractive philosophy for followers of Raniere, for it seemed to give them permission to be mini-Vanguards and their women were deemed most selfish indeed if they:

A. Objected to their man’s philandering.

B. Philandered themselves.

In any event, some will be intrigued to know that SOP survives, in some fashion. A source sent me this – at least part of the most recent newsletter of the Society of Protectors. In fact, it is dated today:


I deeply regret that I cannot provide readers with more information on where the meetings are held or even how to join SOP. The president of the High Council of SOP was/is James J. Del Negro. His private cell phone number is 518-588-7792. You can also try him at 518-588-7792.

If he doesn’t pick up, try emailing him at

Jim is not only on the High Council of SOP, but he has the illustrious rank, along the Stripe Path, of Orange, 2 stripes. Please show him proper deference when speaking to him. He was formerly coached by Lauren R. Salzman, who just pleaded guilty to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy, and as part of her plea, she had to admit Nxivm was a criminal operation.

I don’t know how that makes Jimmy feel. But Jim was always a true Society of Protectors guy. His own longtime girlfriend used to be Raniere’s girl [one of them] and no doubt Raniere marked her as his own numerous times. But Jimmy was content to be a beta male and worship his Vanguard.


The symbol of SOP. Some people call the Society of Protectors “the Society of Cuckolds” since so many of the men in the group had their wives and girlfriends marked by the Vanguard.



Lauren Salzman got out second best so far – in pleading guilty and cooperating with the Feds to bury Vanguard, Clare Bronfman, Allison Mack, and Kathy Russell. If necessary, she would bury Jimmy Del Negro too. Viva Executive Success!

BTW Lauren Salzman’s pleaded guilty on March 25, 2019 and, at the request of her counsel, the Court sealed the transcript of the plea hearing.

Now, the government and Lauren’s attorneys jointly moved the Court to unseal a copy of the defendant’s change of plea hearing with limited redactions.  When it becomes available, Jimmy [and we] can see just how far Lauren repudiated their master, his criminal enterprise, and his teachings.

  • Jim DelNegro,

    I would greatly appreciate it if you would kindly post an authentic invitation to me to attend your little shindig. I think you and I could have a great time together. You are big guy and I am a big guy. Let’s meet face to face and talk.

    How about it Jim?
    Contact Frank and give him an authentic invitation for me.

    I am 100% serious. Let’s talk face to face nice and casual.

    • Why don’t you work your way up to being so brave and come on my radio show first? Why not give Jim an email to contact you? Do you even know where JIm lives? Are you going to travel to see him, or do you expect him to travel to see you? LOL

      • Scott Johnson,

        Once again & final time…….

        Scott if you truly want me on your podcast(radio)show please kindly cut&paste and post the following:

        I Scott Johnson grant the individual known as “Niceguy”,permission to directly communicate freely and openly with the cohost and producers of my show. I Scott Johnson acknowledge that the information Niceguy communicates and provides may be harmful to my reputation and standing in my community. I promise as consideration for Niceguy attending my show the following: I will not sue or file civil court action of any nature or against the individual known as Niceguy for defamation and or libel as defined by the state of Texas.

  • Jim DelNegro,

    Do you preach Keith Raniere’s doctrine that age is just a number?

    Are you a pedophile like your master Raniere?

    Do you bed underage girls?

    Do you film your actions?

    Do you consider yourself a disgrace?

  • Groups like NXIVM don’t just dry up and blow away – plus they seem to have a significant, somewhat separate presence in Mexico, with some very wealthy backers.

    It would be very interesting to know what is going on among those who remain, how many there are and how they are coping and organizing themselves. Is there much information available?

    Particularly in Albany, they’ve got to be reeling, and losing those who aren’t absolutely loyal. I don’t see how they can recruit with Raniere discredited, particularly since there is no one of any stature left to take his place as leader. If he were to beat the charges, I could see that he might lead a band of remaining followers. Otherwise, I think NXIVM will continue to lose members until there are just a few diehard loyalists left in the Albany area, probably mostly women, Raniere’s counterparts to Manson’s girls like “Squeaky” Fromme and Sandra Good who have remained defenders on the outside, and committed to promoting his supposed environmental philosophy, ATWA.

  • On the left part of the picture above appears Angel Smith, the first of Raniere’s many girlfriends. Even if they split decades ago (before CBL), Smith still stood very closed to her ex for years, as she appears in many pictures of Nxvim era. Was she part of NXVIM? Why did she stay behind her ex for decades? We know she let her daughter works for Raniere, wich is really suspicious.

  • Dear Jim delNegro,

    I am completely dumbfounded….

    ….The Society of Protectors overall leader, Keith Raniere, has just been indicted for a child porn video in which Keith is the star.

    The video is irrefutable evidence that Keith Raniere is a pedophile and rapist.

    Jimmy, don’t you think now would be a good time to disband the group?

    Jimmy, I am only thinking of you because someone’s husband alleged you did some bad things.

    Do birds of a feather flock together Mr. Jim delNegro?

    • Jimmy are you an alleged rapist like your leader Keith Raniere? It’s a question not an allegation Jimmy.

    • The Frank Report has already talked about a Mexican woman who was unlawfully confined by the Salzmans for 18 months with the connivance of the woman’s family. Unless this is a new case the stories about this woman should still be in the Frank Report archives.

      The Salzmans, mother and daughter, are as rotten as human beings can be.
      A lot of their animus is the result of being displaced from power by Clare Bronfman and Allison Mack.
      Sometimes to make a case the government must cut deals with really rotten, despicable people.
      In an ideal world Nancy, Lauren, Clare and Allison would each get at least twenty years in a cage and Keith Raniere would get one hundred years.

    • Some interesting tidbits there, indeed, among them:

      “Salzman’s mother, Nancy Salzman, is the only other Nxian to plead guilty. Nancy Salzman’s lawyers adamantly denied last month that she was cooperating against her co-defendants in any way.

      Prosecutors have also said that Mack and the group’s accountant, Kathy Russell, are engaged in plea negotiations. “

    • Thanks for sharing. Everyone should check out the the above link ^.

      Lauren has admitted to keeping Jane Doe hostage!!!!!

      Why does the DOJ still need a plea deal from Allison Mack? (Rhetorical question)

  • I was hoping you’d say “April Fools!” after that scary headline.

    We can all laugh aplenty over clowns like Jim Del Negro heading up what else but a Society of “Pussies”? …Though, seriously, imagine the spread of KAR’s genuine beliefs — foremost in his sexual exploitation of children — among a group of males being indoctrinated in and bonding over these and other misogynistic and criminal practices for only the NX leaders’ benefit.

    They tapped a vein in Mexico with hombres willing to pay for reinforcement of their already chauvinist beliefs and mebbe some wife obedience training. Those “Family values NX exported” as Coco on here glibly noted on a different post.

    What they don’t know is Keith & Clare Et Al plan on taking all their girls for themselves and owning, marring, branding, torturing, emotionally and physically destroying them for life — just as they’ve done to all who came each generation before this one.

  • Rumor has it that to become a member of SOP, the men have to supply colateral…a pic of themselves cumming on their own face.

  • I’m looking forward to a follow-up story when it isn’t April Fool’s Day. What happens when Salinas and Betancourt jizz on/in each other? Enquiring minds want to know.

  • It only takes a small group of like minded people to keep the embers of NXIVM alive in Albany and Mexico.

    This is a group of like minded people. Regardless that their Vanguard will likely never see the outside of prison, they will carry on.

    • I fear NXIVM might e far more resilient than one would think.
      Some people might come to view Raniere and his followers as martyrs to some kind of cause.
      And the Salinas family has enough money to some day revive the cult under new management.

    • Nah! NXVIM is based on feminism, how to use feminism as a manipulative tool, how to control girls through feminist ideas, how to use feminism, in one’s decadence, for lack of a better word. To sum up, it all about sex, drugs and being nice. Contrary to common beliefs sex solely depends on women’s cuntness/action in bed, the size do not matter, looks barely matter, money barely matter, its all about devotion and praise and sweet/good ideas installed in her mind that makes the sex worth while every time. KAR knows this too well, his record is enough proof that men’s fantasy in bed can be achieve regardless of the status of the girl. Rich, poor, famous or not is on the table. It also appear that KAR is sick, feminist ideology of ” I can have it all ” has a effect on men. One of the effect is cuckhold, taking pleasure and being arouse watching your wife/partner giving it all in bed to another man/friend/brother maybe.

      Text book on how to do this is out there, its making a brotherhood out of it makes up the hard part. IMO this is a rich man’s game, reptilian blood in Europe could be the source of the text book. But due to secrecy its hard to confirm this stories. Nevertheless, as a man I would not mind taking brainwashing class on how to win a womens heart who would support my polygamous ways, these women who would not mind jumping in bed with me every now and then is a need to satisfy my unsatisfied lust. Yes! Why do one when you can have 5 and everybody’s all for it. Guilt is out of the table and my ego is well fed. So, men would die to be in this kind of cult cough* i mean brotherhood. Imagine beimg in necker island fucking every girl ( or even just watching them ) in the meet, while you learn about how to launder money like the cartel.

      This kind of group/cult blooms in feminist country, feminist is everywhere its easy to spot them, a woman who possess, beauty, education and money is
      90percent a hundred percent feminist. Needless to say that – women in the lower class are dying to be treated like princess, this is rampant every country has it. Where there is feminism cults like this will bloom and will sprout under the protection of the government. Note that the law is in their side as long as those secret wont spill in public.

      Like I said before criminal enterprise would love to make similar groups like this, this takes away kidnapping girls for sex trade off there list, it also upped the price of sex because actors like Kristin, Mack, is on the table. This feeds the ego of rich politicians while the cartel gets a good amount of cash and a blackmail material to both the politician and the actress/actor, two birds in one stone. Cartels love these kind of investment. Of course those rich, famous and powerful people tied in the tangle would not mind doing things like laundering drug money, travelling people in the U.S. If the picture, this operation one day can be perfected to the point that gun’s would not be needed by powerful cartels. Everyone gets fucked, everyone gets paid, everyone wants it in secret, everyone’s in business and everybody’s happy.

      Yes! Sad to say that we live in a sick society, ” personally I blame MTV ” ( lord of war ). Frankly, IMAO when society tolerated the sickness that money brings to every individual it sprout to feminism and so on. Similarities are common, these things comes out as good stuff ( like money and feminism ) until it’s too late to realized that it’s evil. Today, because we tolerated evil, everything is good until it’s too late to realized that it is evil. Heaven is not popular these days but what the hell.

      Logically in order to walk the path to heaven, the good logical thing to do is to give up money, live in the mountains alone away from civilization and start a new life of righteousness. This of course is a outrageous idea, this path also lead to a conclusion that everyone is a zombie but me. 1 against billions of people is not a good statistic but this decision can save one’s soul.

      • Ka-lel is just repeating what has been said a few times on the FR, that there was an orgy at Necker island. But the only *fact* is that John Tighe in his Necker report wrote one word–*sex*–with no elaboration. Maybe his source said there was sex but said no more.

        But *sex* could mean ANYTHING—maybe a few couples went to their rooms with their significant others; or a drunk guy got to third base with a drunk gal; or the SOP performed a circle jerk demonstration; or every guy was “fucking every girl.”

        Like a lot of things here on the FR, one person writes something salacious and it is eagerly repeated till it becomes legend.
        Anyone here *really* know what went on at Necker?

  • Finally, something on SOP. But I wonder, is this just an auto-generated email that no one turned off?

  • Frank,

    Maybe Vanguard left enough of his magical sublime baby batter behind on Ben’s and Jim’s women that both men became enchanted.

    Is it possible that Ben and Jim witnessed the same blue light that so many harem members witnessed? Ben lay with 2 harem members; Does that not mean Ben is twice as holy as Jim? I believe its worthy of consideration.

  • There are other video platforms besides youtube. Some people whose work has been censored/removed by youtube are now posting over at You may wish to investigate this further as a possible platorm for material.

    • Somebody,

      I hate to correct you but a few of the men, besides being pieces of shit, are also qualify as cuckolds. I believe Jim and Ben sadly qualify as Keith’s cuckolds if the rumors are true.

    • NCGirl,

      I do not know if you are a newer visitor of the Frankreport, but I suggest you do a search of the Frankreport archives on Jim delNegro. Jim is allegedly guilty of certain “forcible” and or “consent” “acts” with another man’s filipino wife according to the wife’s husband.

      • She’s not new to the site and that crime is not a topic of the current lawsuit, or delNegro would be a named defendant. Are you still too scared to come on my radio show? What did you find out Saturday night? Anything special? LOL

      • Hey, niceguy,

        I have been around just not as frequently as I was last summer. What my question is, is if Jim delNegro and others, like Karen Unterreiner are the others mentioned in the charges. Both have been lying low since Vanguard’s arrest. I read the lurid details of Jim’s claim of being attacked by another man’s wife, and I am not sure I am buying it.

        I am wondering also if maybe Karen didn’t provide information to the government on the financial crimes of NXIVM, considering her long history with KR and her knowledge of the financial workings of the organization. Just a thought.

        I can’t imagine all these loyal people just fading into the woodwork, when someone like Kathy Russell is taking the fall for so much of the criminal activity.

        • NCGirl,

          Jim and Karen have not been charged with anything. If I remember correctly, Frank has stated that believes no more person will be charged federally at this point in time. Some of the higher up individuals in Nxivm may be charged by New York State. Frank seems to suggest that it is impossible to forecast who if anyone will be charged next.

          My personal belief is that any additional criminal charges against any of the defendants or new individuals being charged, will hang solely on how much publicity the trial receives and how much public outrage occurs.

    • Then again NXIVM’s guru/messiah spiritual leader is a Pedophile like the later two groups ancient founder.

  • How Jim Del Negro was RAPED by a five foot tall Asian woman who jumped on him in bed.

    “When Will told me about how Jim had seduced his wife, I asked Jim about it. At first he denied it. Then when I said it would be no good to lie about it, he finally admitted it – saying that Will’s wife seduced him. He was lying in bed and she came and jumped upon him and virtually raped him. ”

    “Well what about the other times?” I asked him. He said, “she attacked me in the bathroom and tore off my clothing. What could I do?”

    “Jim is about 6’3” and 225 pounds and at the time quite athletic. Jean was at best 5 feet tall and under 100 pounds. I found it hard to believe and I told Jim so. After that, we never spoke again. I heard he later led the Society of Protectors – a men’s group for Keith Raniere.”

    By the way Jim Del Negro was Allison Mack’s coach at NXIVM.

    • Shadow, did you ever stop to think that poor Jim was Roofied?

      And maybe the world is flat?

      • So Jim Del Negro is so desirable that this 5 foot tall 100 pound woman, and a mother with a newly born baby as well, drugged him for sex?
        NXIVM is sure skilled at spinning lies.

        • Shadowstate I am guessing it was joke. I don’t think a woman in the history of mankind has ever drugged or roofied a man for sex.
