Here is a link to a 2014 Vimeo video of Allison Mack singing – and Siobhan Hotaling accompanying her on guitar and providing background vocals.
In light of what we now know, this video is more than a little creepy.
The performance is at a baby shower – the baby evidently being the child of Sarah Edmondson. The song Mack – who gave up acting to sing and oversee a secret sorority (led by a man) that branded women on their pubic region – is called Lullaby – sung originally, I understand, by a group called the Dixie Chicks.
What is so creepy about this Mack video is that it features a ‘who’s who’ of Nxivm leaders – including Nancy and Lauren Salzman, who, like Mack, will be testifying against their Vanguard; the late Pam Cafritz and Barbara Jeske, and DOS slave leaders Monica Duran, Dani Padila and Rosa Laura Junco, and longtime Nxivm leader Esther Chiappone Carlson.
In fairness to Edmondson, she was in Nxivm heart and soul five years ago, and it was natural for her to have a baby shower with her close friends in Albany. When she turned – when she woke up or made the full realization that Raniere is a stinker, she turned hard and thoroughly and sought to expose him – heart and soul.
She turned against a number of the women enablers of Nxivm seen in the pictures.
In particular she turned against Lauren Salzman who was her DOS slave master and who deceived and surprised her into being branded.
Edmondson lived in Vancouver, and ran the Nxivm center there. She likely saw a lot less of the sinister designs and machinations of the Nxivm group – certainly a lot less than the women of Albany who she is seen with in the video.
In 2017, Edmondson left Nxivm and had a significant role in the cult’s takedown.
She is, to date, the only woman to publicly show her DOS brand – which she did to a photographer at the New York Times. Before that, she provided Frank Report with powerful and insightful information to help expose and take down the cult.
Sarah’s revealing information to me, once published, allowed many DOS slaves to escape and prompted scores of non-branded Nxivm members to quit, appalled by revelations on Frank Report which in turn helped caused Nxivm – at least in the USA and Canada – to crater.
The reason I am publishing pictures from the video – which is actually a sound track of Mack singing and a series of photographs – is to give readers a glimpse of Albany Nxivm – what it looked like back on January 24, 2014 – when Nxivm was at or near its pinnacle.
Of course, Raniere, who ran it all, was not present – yet he is in spirit. One can feel his eerie and ugly presence in some of the baby outfits and the vacant gazes of some of the women.
Below are some of the pictures Allison chose to accompany her dulcet tones. There are 66 pictures. Allison appears in about a dozen of them. It’s possible that soon after I publish this post, someone will remove the Vimeo video, so I took the trouble to capture the video, so it will not be lost to the world.
A baby shower is usually attended by only women. This baby shower was held before DOS, which was also supposed to be only women – but as Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman admitted – it was secretly led by a man.
Sarah Edmondson with the late Barbara Jeske. Barb was to die about 9 months after this photograph was taken. Raniere handled her treatment. Lamentably, he misdiagnosed her cancer as carpel tunnel syndrome, which led to a delay in her treatment. But all’s well that end’s well. Jeske was induced to sign over all her assets to Raniere making out a last minute will in his favor.
In the long run it is hard to say who fared better Pam or Allison. Pam was diagnosed with cancer. Raniere undertook her treatment, prescribing a milky white drink for Pam to consume. The treatment somehow failed, but it ended well for Raniere. Pam left her entire estate to Raniere – some $8 million.
Nancy Salzman was president of Nxivm and no gathering could be complete without her. They called her Prefect. Now she has completely turned on Raniere. She cut herself a plea deal – and likely among all the Nxivm defendants, she will serve the least amount of prison time. Yet, ironically, next to Keith, she is the one most responsible – for building and preserving Nxivm, If Keith was the father, Nancy was the mother of Nxivm, the woman who induced most of the women to join and remain in Nxivm.
Gawd Siobahn Hotaling is such a creepy little troll. Ugh.
My Will Is Stronger Than Yours– what a weird thing to print on a baby’s onesie! Ranieri’s “philosophy”, from what I can gather, was a mishmash of half-baked Nietzsche and pseudo-Buddhism, cobbled together with a bit of careerist motivational speaker harangue and some pop psychology as the whipped topping. Never mind that Nietzsche loathed Buddhism and that careerist go-getting is utterly at odds with Zen quietism. It’s all utter nonsense. Why anybody would fall for this sort of sophomoric philosophizing is beyond me, or believe his claims to be a genius after listening to him for two minutes. And yet his followers weren’t ignorant rubes.
“NXIVM baby shower” are three words that have no business in the same sentence.
What a gaggle of self righteous, deceptive, lying, power hungry, brain washed people. This is the crowd I would never hang around.
Oh, come on. Most of the commenters here are okay people, with some notable exceptions.
Very sad and difficult to watch someone waste away from a disease.
Just like Where is Waldo…where is Karen?
Also, the movie, Eyes Wide Shut comes to mind.
Really eerie this group. Crowley would have loved Keith.
Why does the movie Rosemary’s Baby come to mind?
Sarah Edmondson’s wedding. Ally Wack sings at the end. Lots of NXIVM freaks present. Can you spot how many? Names?
Much of the writing on the baby’s clothing is creepy as hell…
I don’t want to read into anything but “what happens in Albany stays in Albany” sounds like an “anchor baby rights” motto…and grounds for paternity testing. 😀
Wow, that video is so incredible disturbing when you know the back stories of all the women involved and what was going on at the time the video was shot.
I felt like I was watching a remake of Rosemary’s Baby except it was real.
Here are the real Dixie Chicks singing “Lullaby”.
I think you will find Natalie Maines performance more professional than Pimp Mack’s.
I give this music video a rating of Four Pimps.
1. Pam Caffritz
2. Barb Jeske
3. Allison Mack
4. Lauren Salzman.
Hmmmmm no, you can’t …Lauren and Allison aren’t pimps based on the court documents…
Stick to the fact, old man.
BTW Lauren was never considered (by the law) to be a pimp.
Still, i give you a point because it one of the rare case were you don’t accuse 1 person only!
Some progress here!
They are all pimps in the court of public opinion. Rating movies with stars is opinion, not court documents.
AND court of public opinion must submit to the court of law…this include the constitution…
Freedom of press and speech are also limited by defamation.
In this case, stating something like a crime (without the slightest prove of it) is a Diffamation per se.
It’s fully prosecutable and that beat the court of public opinion…scout.
Lauren and Allison plead out of being convicted of pimpery because the government is gullible.
And just wait until you see what I have planned to legally end Allison Mack’s acting career once and for all.
The government isn’t gullible. They took a sure thing rather than taking a risk at trial and appeals. I’m looking forward to hearing how you will legally end Mack’s career. I thought you already said it is over.
Shadow: Allison Mack cannot get a job with Walt Disney
Watcha got, Shadow? I’m feeling a big collateral card you’re playing. Could Allison obey your orders and have you not release it? Shall she call you Shadowguard? Has this been your endgame? If yes, well played. Well played, indeed.
Great post, Anonymous. WIsh I’d thought of it.
All the collateral is in the media and the court documents.
Corporate America does not like extortionists and racketeers like Allison Mack.
Shadow: Allison Mack cannot get a job with Walt Disney.
Shadow – I’m totally intrigued! I wish you success
Shadow: Allison Mack cannot get a job with Walt Disney
Mass Media companies are giant businesses with huge investments and ties to the business community.
They do not tolerate racketeers and extortionists like Allison Mack.
I wish you would end your career of posting here instead.
What is it? your love story with the AUSA is finished Shadowboy?
You just Don’t accept the Truth…
Surprised it took you so long to find that video. Why don’t you also post Sarah’s wedding video. Then your readers can play spot the cult members, although we know sadly a few on here are only interested in their celebrity obsession. Hint to Shadow and Bouroux, watch to the end.
BTW, The Unncover podcast said that Sarah and Anthony were actually going to move to Albany until Sarah realized that it was Alllison’s initials branded on her pussy. Wonder if it had been her own initials along side her Vanguard if she would still have taken offense and left the cult.
If she really said that, i advice sarah to decide about what happened once and for all…because it was a matter of Raniere’s Initial.
Tony Natalie said in an interview in may 2018 (i think) that it unlikely that it was Allison’s initial as Raniere is not sharing (But what does Tony know about Raniere…It’s not like she lived with the guy.Wait, she did!).
I wouldn’t for a second be skeptical of a NXIVM or former NXIVM member. They being so ethical.
Anonymous, in the CBC Radio interviews, Sarah says she made a very poor slave-master, and she never felt comfortable ordering people around. So it looks like she didn’t have it in her to carve her initials on anyone.
The baby was lucky it wasn’t aborted.
“In light of what we now know, this video is more than a little creepy.”
Is there anything about NXIVM that is not creepy?
“Pam Cafritz was Raniere’s leading pimp and wing woman – often working hard to get her master women and girls for his sexual mentoring. Since Pam was bisexual she had certain fringe benefits in her work. She holds a small stone as Allison looks on. After Pam died Allison took over as Raniere’s chief pimp.”
Is there any doubt with these pictures and this video that Allison Mack damn well knew that Pam Caffritz was Raniere’s Chief Pimp?
And as Cafritz slowly faded away Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman competed tooth and nail, fang and claw to replace Cafritz as Chief Pimp.
Allison Mack an.d Lauren Salzman knew damned well what they were doing.
Mack and Salzman are LIARS when they act as if they were brainwashed into being Pimps.
They are lying to save their rotten hides.
And while we are on the subject of Cafritz’s bisexuallity, Pam used the sex slaves to quench her own thirst for lesbian sex.
And the bisexual Allison Mack did the same after she became Chief Pimp.
Allison Mack benefited by having the free use of the female slaves when Raniere was not using them.
Allison Mack had the same fringe benefit as the bisexual Pam Cafritz.
But Allison Mack the LIAR will pretend that only Raniere profited from the free use of the harem.
NXIVM DOS was a lesbian sex cult that benefited the Vanguard and his Chief Pimps, Pam Cafritz and Allison Mack.
What a clown you are…
If we go by this , what about Sarah Edmonson…After all, she invited all those people so she must know each of them.
But of course, that doesn’t fit your usual “It’s Allison who is behind everything” agenda.
You once again go with fake info there …it’s just in your head. Nothing show that Allison benefited of any sexual advantage at any point.
The court documents and proof are absolutely not going that direction.
Once again, could you please keep your disgusting fantasm for you.
“Once again, could you please keep your disgusting fantasm for you”
I will make sure that no Hollywood executive will ever dream of hiring Allison Mack.
Maybe gullible government attorneys might buy her BS story of being a victim but the American public does not.
No one wants to see a sadistic woman who tortures and enslaves other women.
And there are only a thousand stories in the mainstream media accusing Allison Mack of branding and enslaving women.
I get the impression from this that Shadow thinks a sex cult and sex slaves are worse if it involves lesbians rather than straight sex.
Ummm…hello CREEPY AS HELL. Is this like Heaven’s Gate 2.0? Cuz I’m never giving you up. Barf
There was another good gospel singer, moved many people to tears as he preached the word. Handsome, charasmatic and played a top of the line Gibson Les Paul.
His name was Vernon Howell. Although you probably know him by his other name. DAVID KORESH

Siohban Hotaling was an alleged money mule. Has she been or will she be investigated? She was in Joe O’Hara’s lawsuit. Is she still in the cult?
A lot of people were named in Joe’s lawsuit, which was long on names, short on facts.
The allegations are true though. Financial crimes.
When were financial crimes proven?
