It’s Not Too Late for Clare Bronfman to Make Her Father Proud.

L-R Sara Brnfman, Edgar Bronfman, Clare Bronfman.

A Friend of the Good Guys

This is in response to Judge Won’t Let Clare Bronfman Go to School.

Don’t know about the rest of you but I believe in second chances. That being said, the repentance about one’s mistakes needs to be sincere for second chances to work over the long term.

Let Clare Bronfman go back to school if she’s sincere about her desire for an education. Let her take steps to get back on the right path. We can laugh at her for being too old to be in school, but that temporary ridicule doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of life. It’s her life to do with what she chooses.

A lot of the trouble she ended up involved with in the first place, in NXIVM, could have been due to her own lack of education and propensity to believe Raniere’s b.s (not giving her a pass here, I know she’s accused of wicked acts). I hope, for her own good, she makes better decisions in the future. Seems like her soul degraded to a very sorry, empty state while she was around Raniere.

I know a lot of people here are angry with Clare for the things she’s done and I understand that.

Hopefully, some of those wrongs can be addressed through the civil litigation filed by Attorney Omar Rosales and the upcoming litigation that Neil Glazer is reportedly planning.

Enough is enough, Clare.

While you’re cleaning up your act, tell the truth about the things you’ve done to harm people with the legal system. Among other abuses, Clare needs to come clean about the things she did to frame Frank Parlato, who is still facing ill-conceived criminal charges resulting from Bronfman’s improper manipulation of prosecutors.

Clare, when your conscience is clean again, you’ll be able to better concentrate on your school work. Not joking or being condescending. I mean that sincerely.

Maybe it’s not too late to turn things around in your life and for your legacy, which has taken a serious hit here due to the NXIVM fiasco and your improper acts.

Get your GED. There are more options available for adult education available now, online and otherwise, than at any time in history. Learn to love education — knowledge is addicting, you can lose yourself in book study. You may find it to be one of the most pleasurable things you’ve experienced.

Even when you’re done settling all your cases and dealing with the whole NXIVM mess, you’ll still probably have enough resources to do something meaningful with a newly-found education. That’s what your Dad wanted you to do with your inheritance.

Maybe it’s not too late to make him proud.

Edgar Bronfman Sr. died in December 2013.


Clare Bronfman was arrested in July 2018. She pleaded guilty in April 2019.

I believe that Sadie Mae Glutz, Susan Atkins, did have a change of heart and deeply regretted her actions, but a change of heart and regret do not right the wrongs that were done. Forgiveness is the prerogative of the victims. It is not compulsory. Nobody has an obligation to forgive. I would never pass judgement on a victim who didn’t forgive a perpetrator.

I’ll just quietly accept and respect whatever her victims feel about her.

If the victims are Christians, they should have forgiven her long ago. But that doesn’t mean Atkins should be turned loose on society.

Personally, I’d absolutely support Claire Bronfman furthering her education. She could hire a professional tutor and still write exams.

It is very difficult to extricate yourself from the hypnotic control of a highly skilled “influencer” who is able to build an entire social circle around their own personal thought world. There is terrible guilt that you are failing.

You’re taught the world is a certain way and the only means to fix it is to use the influencers brand of logic and methods.

Education frees ones self from the techniques used on her. And of particular value would be reading the original sources Mr. Raniere used to create the Nxivm teachings. Because when you read the original you can compare it to the teachings and reveal any hidden agenda behind any changes in the script.

In my case, when I read the original teachings that were purportedly channelled from a divine being, but were proven to have been had been clearly written by another individual 20 years earlier, I was actually shivering with disbelief.

So in that regard, I would encourage all the women who had early contact with Mr. Raniere to publish the information about what books Mr. Raniere was reading in the 90’s.

Which cult were you in? The books Raniere was reading in the 80s were Amway books, just look for the ones written before that timeframe here:

Yup. Too late to make dad happy. But there is the rest of human-kind, she could try make us happy, by, at the very least, laying off the f*cking vexatious litigation. Oh and doing her bird like any good obedient crim – claiming to be on the road to reform.

Clare is too twisted for redemption.
The argument nature vs nurture…it’s nature, through and through.
The Bronfman sisters not only come from tainted genes they are part of that elite who believe they do not have to abide by the rules of right and wrong.
And yes, there is right and wrong, not this everything is relative.
Life proves it out.
We see before us, in this day and age the culmination of such.

Just to name a few.
(I chose the above names as examples only because they are well known in current times)
Inherently we, who do not share twisted genes, recognize right and wrong.
Eyes Wide Shut was a veiled way of exposing this world. The world of the do called elite and celebrity.

I wouldn’t trust Clare with a dead body for fear she might dabble in nectophilia. Nothing seems too perverse and twisted for her.

It’s too late. He’s dead, it’s impossible for him to be proud of her. Dead men don’t feel pride. She’s already been given permission to take the test to get her fake high school diploma, so that’s not even an issue.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

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.
