I discussed aspects of the NXIVM case with my brother who has ties to DC.
When I told my brother about Nicki Clyne uploading Instagram photos from the vicinity of Keith Raniere’s hideout in Puerto Vallarta, he was astonished.
His response was either Nicki Clyne was very dumb or Nicki Clyne was very devious.
He was referring to the fact that when photos are uploaded to Instagram, they are given a Geo Locator ID that identifies exactly where they were uploaded from.
In other words, Nicki Clyne was telling the FBI exactly where Raniere and his entourage were hiding out.
In watching the 26 second video, where Raniere was arrested by the Federales, one can see that Allison Mack looks dazed and confused but Nicki Clyne is cool, calm and composed. Nicki Clyne was very much in command.
It’s almost as if Nicki Clyne had advance knowledge of what was going down.
And, of course, the Feds passed over Nicki Clyne when it came to indictments, but the Feds did indict Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman.
The Feds also passed over the “first line” DOS members from Mexico.
And the Feds passed over Emiliano Salinas and Alex Betancourt as well as Edgar and Omar Boone when it came to handing out indictments.
When it came to indictments, it is as if some people were untouchable.
A possible reason is that powerful people in Mexico, like Carlos Salinas, Carlos Slim and Alejandro Junco found Raniere and Allison Mack to be expendable embarrassments, which they are, and decided to do some NXIVM house cleaning by removing the Salzmans and Bronfmans.
What is left of NXIVM could be slimmed down and owned and operated by wealthy, influential Mexicans. They will have an American front man but the Mexicans will call the shots from behind the scenes.
And the Salinas family has the financial resources to rebuild NXIVM on a more business-like basis.
So I am compelled to ask Yolanda Cortez, Legatus Pro Temp and Pea Onyu if this scenario is plausible.
His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.
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.
Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
