Allison Mack, Keith Raniere and Clare Bronfman Linked-In Pages Still Reference Cult Roles

Frank Report correspondent Dianne Lipson recently reminded me, “I suppose you may already be aware of this, but Linked-In profiles are still up for NXIVM members:
“And many more. It’s a real stroll down memory lane. Note the word salad in Allison’s profile.”
In case these go down in the near future, here are the ‘Summary” for Mack and Bronfman:

Allison Mack

Allison Mack Summary

Allison Mack began her career at age 4 when her mother made an executive decision that she had the personality to be on TV.

Little did her mom know that she was introducing Allison into what would soon be her greatest passion in life. What ensued after this introduction has been 23 years of imagination, creativity, introspection and evolution. Allison has filled her life with characters of all shapes and sizes. From her stage performances in shows such as “Chicago”, “Rent”, and “Hair” to films with actors such as Sissy Spacek, Estelle Parsons, Christopher Lloyd and Aiden Quinn along with the role she is most well known for (Chloe Sullivan on the CW’s “Smallville”). Allison’s love for what she does grows exponentially over time. In the fall of 2008, she was given the great honor of directing episode 13 of Smallville’s season 8 (“Power”). This propelled her into a whole new arena of appreciation for the art of film making.

Allison is currently working on the development of a unique and poignant organization for women. Stay tuned for more details regarding this passion project.

Together, the team is focused on making “human-centric films as seen through a female lens”.

Allison recognizes the great responsibility in being a public icon and has enormous respect and honor for the implications of such an honor. It is her intention to invoke and inspire dialogue and thought to encourage her audiences to have a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them, and as an effect building a more compassionate and joyful world through the arts. Allison’s insatiable appetite for understanding human dynamics and behavior is an infinite source of insight and excitement. She will be eternally grateful to every person in the world for their individual contribution to this enigmatic and beautifully complex life, it is the fire she uses to propel herself forward with her trademark enthusiasm and fervor.


Sad. Allison has become something not quite a public icon but in reality a con.

***Clare Bronfman

Summary Clare Bronfman

Clare Bronfman has always been inspired by excellence in human performance. Having grown up in an environment that fostered achievement; she tenaciously pursued a career as an equestrian show jumper. In nine and a half years of her career, Clare achieved 3 major international wins, represented the United States on numerous occasions, ranked 80th in the World and 12th in the United States. In 2003, Clare discovered and began to work with Rational Inquiry® – a new tool for developing human potential created by Keith Raniere. The results of working with Rational Inquiry® were so profound on Clare’s personal and professional life, that in 2005 she decided to retire from her riding career and work full time with the company imparting the tools, NXIVM and focus her efforts on working with others.

Following in her father, Edgar Bronfman Sr.’s footsteps, Clare has now turned her efforts towards the art of business, and philanthropy. Clare continues to work with and receive guidance from Keith Raniere in various capacities – as an Executive Board Member of NXIVM and a Board Member of both the Ethical Science Foundation and Ethical Humanitarian Foundation. Clare’s business portfolio also includes the roles of President at Wisdom Systems and Managing Partner at Precision Development.


Did she follow in her father’s footsteps? We know she followed her father’s emails – having personally hacked into his computer. And does she still work with and receive guidance from Raniere? Perhaps on the psychic level. He might be sending her brain messages from his prison cell in Brooklyn to her home Manhattan where she is subject to home confinement awaiting sentencing.


This photo of Keith Alan Raniere was used as an exhibit at his trial.

Keith Raniere’s summary was not readily available on Linked-In when I logged on.

But I think we all know it pretty well.

Here is his delightful bio from as preserved by dating back to 2006.

Keith Raniere

Executive Success Programs – Keith Raniere, co-founder of Executive Success Programs, Inc. (ESP), is a scientist, mathematician, philosopher, and entrepreneur. An unusually gifted individual, Mr. Raniere’s unique abilities were evident at a very early age. Among them:

  • He spoke in full sentences by the age of one was reading by the age of two
  • At the age of eleven, he was an Eastern Coast Judo Champion.
  • At age 12, he taught himself high school mathematics in less than a day and taught himself three years of college mathematics by age 13.
  • He plays many musical instruments and taught himself to play piano at a concert level by age 12
  • He was entered in the Guinness Book of World Records for “Highest IQ” in 1989.
  • He has been noted as one of the top three problem-solvers in the world
  • He was a millionaire by the age of 30 and worth $50 million by the age of 32

Mr. Raniere is perhaps best known as the creator of Rational Inquiry™ – the transformational model at the center of Executive Success Programs’ trainings. Rational Inquiry™ is a science based on the belief that the more consistent an individual’s beliefs and behavior patterns are, the more successful they will be in everything they do. The invention, which Mr. Raniere laid the groundwork for as a teenager, is considered by many to be one of most dramatic developments in the field of human potential today.

But despite his extraordinary talents and accomplishments, what often strikes people most about Mr. Raniere is how down to earth he is. He has the unique ability to relate to virtually anyone and is known by his friends as a prankster extraordinaire.


This is a truly fascinating short bio of the man now facing life in prison.

Keith later amended the bio to a more lengthy and exaggerated bio. Though it appeared on his personal website, it was written in the third person.

What is also interesting is that he claims he was worth $50 million when he was 32, which would have been 1992-93. This was during the time of Consumer’s Buyline. It was soon after closed down.

I also like that fact that he says he has “the unique ability to relate to virtually anyone,” which I hope puts him in good stead with his fellow inmates in prison and especially the guards that can make his life miserable.

He also writes about himself that what “often strikes people most about Mr. Raniere is how down to earth he is” and that he “is known by his friends as a prankster extraordinaire.

Both of these are endearing touches in his bio, meant to lure people into his cult which was built as the prosecution proved as a criminal enterprise to feed Raniere with sex, money and power.

Could the entire DOS branding and blackmail scheme not have been part of the racketeering enterprise and just a prank extraordinaire?

If so, the joke was rather on him.

Speaking of being a prankster extraordinaire, how about this picture. used by the prosecution in his trial:

Yes, it is true – the prosecution actually showed this picture to the jury – and before lunch!

  • As boring as this is getting, may I ask what the hell did all these women see in this guy? He is ugly and fat! Or is that what American women like?

    If so you should come to the UK, there arelenty of hairy fat old guys here for you to have sex with. They won’t blackmail you as they’ll be happy just to get some.

    • They didn’t see anything in Raniere. He was built up into a virtual godlike being before they even met him by a small gang of very evil women. That’s why it won’t work in the UK, or anywhere else for that matter.

      • No, what’s really interesting, and typical of gurus in cases like this, is that women report that they have a unusual personal charisma that is not obvious in pictures – transcending personal appearance. Even some of the men, I think maybe even Frank, reported on the powerful, and attractive, impression that he made in person.

  • Keith has given us his new message for the ages. He will die soon. He lost the case on purpose and said nothing to show the world how unjust the injustice system is. He will not be among us much longer. He will ascend to his primordial state of pure being. And guide the world in his disembodied entity. He has given the world its next message of truth and peace for the next 7 millenniums. Believe.

    • Just as long as you don’t go with him sweetheart – you and your sis. You are very much a cult-by-numbers and this get ready to ‘Believe’ a ‘disembodied entity’ stage, is depressingly familiar, and for those of us without psychopathic tendencies, frankly sad and alarming.

    • Gabriella:

      You are right in one respect.
      People who molest children have a very hard time in prison.
      Unless Raniere is put in a special unit he is in deep trouble.
      You and Yolanda should find yourselves a new religion.

      By the Way where did that 358 K from selling Stinka’s Milltowne Drive house go?
      Was that money designed to fund NXIVM?
      Who provided Sinka to buy the Milltown Drive house anyway?
      Is that Rose Laura’s money?
      Or Clare’s?
      Or Sara’s?

      “And this is the testimony about the dungeon. 9 Milltowne Drive, the sorority house the defendant told his slaves to purchase. And you can see here the warranty deed dated October 25, 2018, with Stinka, LLC signed by Nicole Clyne. She is one of the first line DOS slaves

    • Ya’ll said he was going to be found not guilty too so I’m not really buying what you’re selling. Keep trying though. Gotta be correct eventually. In all honesty your failed prophesies are not being true to your authentic selves or maybe they are? Hmm?

    • His new message for the ages is, “Please can I some more anti-fungal ointment, this itching is driving me crazy!”

  • A better question is how will Keith be remembered in history? Same as Christ. He will be worshipped and people even a generation or two from now will scarcely believe that such a god man walked the earth. Today with our police state it doesn’t make sense. His morality was one they could never understand. He brings us freedom. Believe.

    • “A better question is how will Keith be remembered in history? Same as Christ.”

      I am not much of a Bible scholar but I never knew that Christ molested children!
      Did I miss something in my education?

      • Although the Blessed Virgin Mary was between 12 and 14 as was standard Roman law etc. has age 12 as the age of consent/marriage for girls which indeed the UK had age 12 for girls for marriageable age if parents consented which was raised to 16 for both sexes if parents consent, in 1929 which we still have today.

        Jesus, if he existed, was probably faithful to the one wife, however, but who knows? It was certainly the old testatment where masses of polygamy often took place often it was likely to be with young girls of 12 – 14.

        So, I wouldn’t cite Christ on this issue, but certainly, KR practiced things which were never going to work for him and went badly for everyone involved.

    • He’ll be “remembered” along with other New York cult leaders like James Bernard Schafer, Saul B. Newton, and Dwight York. Who?! Forgotten along with many other hucksters,would-be gurus and con artists….

    • Yolanda Cortez,
      KR will not be rememberd at all once Frank Report stops writing about him.
      Nobody but us newsies and some legal people and all you fucked up ladies knows anything about this stinky fat cat, so no sister he’s a nobody and will not be remebered ever……

      • Raniere, NXIVM and DOS did get some significant press, such as the New York Times coverage.

        However, going back decades, there were other gurus, scandals and scams that made a big splash at the time, but are now all but forgotten. For example, Aimee Semple McPherson had a much larger following and her foibles were a much bigger deal at the time, and yet now she’s barely a footnote to history – Raniere won’t even warrant that, except in a few specialized accounts of cults and their leaders.

    • Being as I am English and live in England, I only get this Frank thing coz my phone shows me all the news headlines. Keith Raniere is a nobody over here. Say his name in the UK and 99% of us will be like ‘Who?’. I only followed coz I liked Allison. Trust me, the guy is not a God! Just a basic swindler that took advantage of weak people.

  • Raniere is not getting out ever.

    But as for Allison, Clare, Nancy and Lauren, they will be back to their old tricks as soon as they can.

    As the Bible says:
    “Proverbs 26:11 (NKJV) As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.”

  • He (Keith), may also add to his resume…He is the most famous con, he has granted a life sentenced for more than 8 counts, he probably is the most disgusting man of the year. He was able to convert the lives of many persons in disgrace for his own personal joy.

  • Ever notice how much ‘Jness’ sounds like the french word ‘jeunesse’ when spoken out loud? Jeunesse mean ‘youth’. Wonder why they chose that term. The website offers no insight:

    “What does ‘Jness’ mean?

    The meaning Jness is still being realized Every women is part of that discovery.”

    In all of your investigations, have you ever found out the origin of this name/why it was chosen?

    • Someone said ‘Janus” which sounds plausible too, i guess it covered both bases and probably some we dont know.. maybe J-ness to appeal to wealthy Jewish Princesses he could go on to persuade of their nazi incarnations? Maybe his little joke-ness:

      Women are vain, proud and two-faced?

    • You are most likely correct Le’Gal. I would not be surprised.

      Raniere loved word play phonetic pronunciations and spelling. Just like a true Mensa moron.


      The word Official has been ruined for me by Raniere….
      As well as Lauren and forlorn.

    • Jeunesse is also the name of an MLM scam that sells ointments to temporarily reduce circles under the eyes, brow wrinkles, etc. It has numerous former Amway scam artists.

    • Maybe it could be tacked on to Allison’s wall the entire time she is in just to remind her of her plight and how she got there…

      • “Maybe it could be tacked on to Allison’s wall the entire time she is in just to remind her of her plight and how she got there…”

        Allison will probably use that photo of the Vanguard to pleasure herself.

  • Such self-important drivel. Too much blue-cheese on that word-salad – too much thousand-island sauce.

  • “What is also interesting is that he claims he was worth $50 million when he was 32, which would have been 1992-93. This was during the time of Consumer’s Buyline. It was soon after closed down.”

    Yet when Raniere was arrested he claimed he did not have a penny to his name. This is the finest true example of executive success to date- from the horses mouth.

  • I’m still amazed that he claimed to be a multimillionaire when he was in his 30’s, but then was essentially indigent when he was at the height of being the self proclaimed “Vanguard”. Did anyone in his inner circle ever ask him where all that money went? He then squandered the Bronfman’s money, and they never questioned it. And none of these other high ranking NXIVM people questioned it either. Instead, they seemingly worshipped him even more. He actually should write a book about how a pauper became a Vanguard!

    If nothing else, this whole matter has been an interesting study in human behavior.

  • “Both of these are endearing touches in his bio, meant to lure people into his cult which was built as the prosecution proved as a criminal enterprise to feed Raniere with sex, money and power.”

    I maintain that from day one, ESP/NXIVM was intended to be a cult.

    Not a business.

    A cult.
