Clare Bronfman website changes hands – and Allison Mack changes her view of Keith Raniere

MK10ART's splendid painting of Kristin Kreuk (who introduced Allison to Nxivm) wrapping her body around Allison Mack.

Times change and people change.



The web domain, has changed also.

It no longer features the ramblings of a dour heiress who funded a criminal enterprise called Nxivm. It is now owned by a poetess who is a professor of English at the University of Virginia.  Her name is Clare Bronfman Ph.D.


Professor Clare Bronfman, Ph.D.The domain, formerly used as the main webpage for Nxivm leader and Seagram’s heiress, Clare W. Bronfman, featured her famous declaration in Dec. 2017 where she said she has “seen so much good from Keith Raniere.”

MK10ART’s splendid depiction of Clare Bronfman endorsing Keith Raniere, both with words and on her person. Note: It is not known if Clare actually sports the Raniere brand. It might be interesting, if she goes to trial, to see if she testifies about it one way or the other.

The new website – for Professor Bronfman – contains her biography. Professor Bronfman is the author of two award-winning collections of poetry and her poetry and non-fiction have appeared in numerous publications.

However, as fine a poetess as Professor Bronfman undoubtedly is, she might feel a slight discomfort in having the same name as a notorious criminal.
I know I would.
In this, she may not be dissimilar to a woman named Allison Mack who is communications manager for Walgreens in Chicago.
Allison Mack, of Chicago, is a communications manager for Walgreens. She is not known to have ever been misled by Keith Raniere, and probably never met the scoundrel. She happens to share the same name as one of Keith Raniere’s associates, now convicted criminal and former actress Allison C. Mack of Los Alamitos California.
As mentioned above, our Clare W. Bronfman made a fine statement supporting Keith Raniere, the man she often referred to as “The Vanguard.”  Her statement came out in December 2017, when the FBI EDNY was investigating Nxivm – and Frank Report was pleased to report this to readers.
It read in part:

“Some have asked me …  why I still support NXIVM and Keith Raniere. The answer is simple: I’ve seen so much good come from both our programs and from Keith himself. It would be a tragedy to lose the innovative and transformational ideas and tools that continue to improve the lives of so many.

“… I can say firmly that neither NXIVM nor Keith have abused or coerced anyone.

“… I have witnessed his kindness even in the hardest of times, I have seen world leaders, business leaders, doctors and others seek his counsel on some of the hardest topics and I am inspired by the humility and compassion with which he approaches them all. I know him to be a man dedicated to the betterment of the lives of others, and most importantly for me, he is a dear friend who has and continues to help me through the difficult decisions and painful moments in my life, including my father’s illness and eventual death.”

This is recorded here for, much like Allison C. Mack just did, if Clare takes a plea deal, she will have to allocute to her crimes. I wonder if she, like Allison, will admit she was misled and abused by Raniere.
MK10ART’s fascinating sketch of Allison and Keith Raniere. Look at the happy yet dishonest expression on Keith Raniere’s face and the rather stupid look on Allison’s.
Allison Mack has dramatically changed her view of Keith Raniere.  In her allocution on April 8, 2019, Allison said this about him:

“I believed that Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people and that my adherence to his system of beliefs would help empower others and help them. I was wrong. And I now realize that I and others engaged in criminal conduct. My misguided beliefs and dedication of what I believed were the principles underlying NXIVM, Keith Raniere’s teachings, resulted in my agreeing to support the criminal enterprise that is alleged in the indictment.

“The goal of the enterprise that I joined was to further and promote the objectives of Keith Raniere…  I was a member of a secret society founded by, developed by, and ultimately led by Raniere. At Raniere’s direction, I and other women sought to recruit other women to join DOS….. I concealed Keith Raniere’s role as the head of DOS and characterized DOS as a women’s only organization, knowing that Keith Raniere was the head of the organization…..

“Your Honor, having reviewed the charges against Keith Raniere in the most recent indictment and having many months to reflect on my own actions and motivations of others, I have come to the conclusion that I must take full responsibility for my conduct. And that is why I am pleading guilty today…  They are good people who I have hurt through my misguided adherence to Keith Raniere’s teachings.”

But here is what Allison said in the past about Raniere on her website,, which is now offline:

“My mentor, Keith, once gave me a lesson on how to listen, truly listen, almost in a meditative way. He taught me how to hear the euphony of the world.”

“So it stands to reason that the more deeply I experience existence, the better artist I will be. The Source [a NXIVM-related course for actresses, designed by Raniere] teaches that and it comes from what Keith shares with his students, taking them on a journey to that depth of one’s life experience and expression.”

When Mack quit her role as an actress on Smallville, she wrote on her website, [], about her concerns about what she would do next.

“I expressed this concern, this incredible feeling of loss and lack of direction to a dear friend and mentor of mine, Keith Raniere. He asked if I had ever thought about taking a little time away from acting to see what I would find…. I decided to take Keith’s advice and give myself some time to build the character of me. The actual me. …

“I have always wanted to change things in the world. Wanted to be a woman that helps to redefine how all women think and feel about themselves. I have wanted to be a superhero in my own right.”

    • Seriously? get help man…You are ridiculous.
      I imagine that you will harass that person too, for bearing the name Allison Mack?

      Get a life for the love of god.

      • Lol. This post is a little off-beat, Frank, if I didn’t know you, your poetic sense of humor and justice and plight for the little guy and my name happened to be a different Clare Bronfman…🤪😱

        It comes down to this for me: If Frank were not precisely who Frank is, NXIVM, and all the evil it stands for and all the evil people who stand behind it even knowing fully what that is — from the pedophilia to the rest — would be gunning ahead on course to God knows what disastrous end for anyone involved for any reason.

        We love you. Frank. You’ve got ‘em nearly beat but don’t get too artsically arrogant on us, please.

        Being the stubborn Sicilian that Frank is, my saying this will almost guarantee the opposite reaction and some kind of bizarre post today. Adding this paragraph is the only way to possibly prevent that, however! Lol.

    • When the DOS story broke, I actually emailed asking if I could arrange a gift membership for an ex who is difficult to buy for.

  • First of all Keith was stealing from METHOD ACTING!
    No new tech, just plagarized someone

    And if ANYONE is deluded enough to believe Allison has seen the light…..I gotta bridge in Brooklyn ta sell ya.

    Jesus H Christ who believes this schlock? Not even a deaf, dumb and blind person would fall for this “I have turned over a new leaf” bit.

    Allison never had a moral backbone to begin with and never will.

    Personally, I hope she cleans toilets for a living for the rest of her life.
    But something tells me Larry Flynt of Hustler magazine just might offer her, and the women of NXIVM, a chance at a centerfold

    You just couldn’t make this crap up.
    God! Losers all and some filthy rich losers.

    • And you already bought it when you pretended to be a victim of cult yourself…

      You know it’s a crime to try to sell several times Something to different people? especially if it’s not your property.

      Anyone who knew Allison before this happened will Believe it, and anyone clever enough to not Believe every story they read from here (or elsewhere) but use common sense to make the selection about what is true and what is just an info that was twisted to sound like a fact while it’s not.

      Nobody cares what a nobody liar like you feels.

      • Kreuk’s is far too thin now for such a mag. She looks like she is on the DOS starvation diet. If the “camera adds 10 lbs” imagine how thin she must look in real life.

  • Can we all be honest about this latest mea culpa from Allison Mack, when any defendant at plea deal hearing or sentencing hearing stands before a judge of course the defendant will apologize profusely, admit guilt and speak about how he or she is a changed person.

    It is not like a defendant is going to say, “Hey judge I am not sorry and by the way go f*ck yourself your honor”.

    Seriously, are any of these defendants actually sorry?

    I personally have no idea because unlike the rest of the commentators on Frankreport I do not happen to be psychic.

  • godaddy must have firesaled that shit.

    I really love this art from MK10ART. Is it possible to obtain an original? I would be interested in anything that is not a direct study of that certain fellow.

    Last and furthermore, re. this Kristin Kreuk: Is it possible that she will be brought into these proceedings, or others? What of the ethereal elf-goat Kristin Kruek?

    • “Last and furthermore, re. this Kristin Kreuk: Is it possible that she will be brought into these proceedings,”

      It is extremely unlikely.
      I doubt that there will be more indictments in the NXIVM case.

    • It is possible Kristin Crook could be subpoenaed to testify, but she could plead the 5th if asked any questions that would incriminate herself. With Mack out of the picture, I doubt she would be a useful witness. Even if Mack were going to trial, Crook wouldn’t be of much help. Others probably will be brought into the trial, if it occurs. People who were cauterized and blackmailed with releasing their “collateral” is an example.

          • Go away Spanky. Even your attempts at an anonymous post stinks of third world aspergers bullshit. Go get one of your teen mags with Kristin Kook in it, roll it up and shove it up your beetle ass. Loser.

          • Maybe there is some cureable medical or mental affliction that explains your Sultan obsession. Or maybe it is just some version of adolescent masterbation fantasy that is just a phase you will grow out of when you reach adulthood.
            That is my sincere hope, because I would hate to have someone like you wandering the streets, pointing at every passerby and shouting, “Sultan! Jerk me off, Sultan!”

          • Spank boy, if you are going to pretend to be someone else, at least change the way you talk. Now go copy and paste and go on Twitter to draw more coverage to the Frank Report, you little worthless kashmir twat.

            “Tee hee!!!”

          • Here are three things you don’t seem to comprehend:

            I am not Sultan—and probably all those you think are, aren’t also.
            I am not defending Kreuk or Sultan.
            I am mocking you for your obsession with both Sultan and masturbation.

            bye bye
