The Three Mistakes of Keith Raniere

I believe Keith Raniere would not be in prison today if he had not made any one of three mistakes.

It’s funny too because he claimed to be one of the top three problem solvers in the world.

He might have gone on scamming people – having sex with a harem of women – lying about his accomplishments – cheating people out of their life savings- doing identity fraud – bulk cash smuggling – running a racketeering enterprise under the guise of a life coaching group – confining women in rooms –  having group blow jobs – semi-starving women – keeping them sleep deprived – promising women to have avatar babies then making them have abortions – and fucking with all of their heads – but for three mistakes.

It was May 2017 when Catherine Oxenberg called and told me her daughter was:

  1. Branded
  2. On her pubic region
  3. With Raniere’s initials.

After years of trying to get this scoundrel for all kinds of crimes, I knew this would be his undoing.

Not that it was illegal. It’s not illegal to brand a woman, on her pubic region, with somebody’s initials, if she consents.

But it shocks the conscience. It speaks to moral rot and wickedness.

Branding was easier to use to explain Raniere’s wickedness than all his financial crimes, the supposed brainwashing, cult machinations, sex perv elements, denying his own son, losing tens of millions of others’ money in commodity trades, or going after enemies with perjury – all put together.

When I reported the news on Frank Report, the cult cratered. Hundreds left. When the New York Times reported the branding, the whole world got interested. So did the DOJ. The media onslaught was sparked by the three:

  1. branding of women
  2.  on the pubic region
  3. with his initials.

It was the shocking concept that this rascal bastard:

  1. branded women,
  2. on their pubic region
  3.  with his initials

that turned the jury against him from that moment in the opening arguments when they heard about it.

He was done. Still, it took all three. Had he skipped one, he might be free today.

If he had chosen not to brand, but tattoo women on their pubic region, nobody would have cared. It’s a tattoo. It’s not terribly painful. It is not necessarily permanent. If women want to get stupid tattoos with their leader’s initials, what’s the big deal?

A cult that tattoos women – even if they call themselves slaves and masters – would not have made it to the front page of the New York Times. Indeed the Times’ headline was Inside a Secretive Group Where Women Are Branded 

I submit if the story was “Inside a Secretive Group Where Women Are Tattooed”, it would not be very shocking.

Still, I think he could have gotten away with branding, if it was not on the pubic region.

If he had branded women on the ass with his initials, I think people would have laughed and called the women silly. If he branded them on the shoulder or ankle, people would have said it’s just a kooky group.

Even if they did give collateral, it’s just a brand on the shoulder.

And, besides, collateral was given voluntarily. The first collateral was given to find out about DOS.  No one had to join after they learned about DOS. The second collateral was again given voluntarily in order to join DOS.

If the brand had been elsewhere – not on the pubic region which is vulnerable and makes people squeamish just to think about being branded there – most people would have blamed the stupid women who could have stopped after they gave their first collateral.

The branding could have been almost anywhere else – except perhaps the breasts or the face – and nobody would care.

A tattoo on the pubic region  – or a brand somewhere else – would not be shocking and without shock, there is no outrage. Without outrage, there would be no media; without media, there would be no prosecution. [The DOJ admitted they first learned about the branding and Raniere, from the Times story.]

Still, I think, Raniere could have gotten away with branding on the pubic region, if he had not used his initials.

If the brand was the four elements or some cosmic symbol, Raniere would have plausible deniability. And the outrage would have been a lot less.  People would think, “OK, crazy women got themselves branded with some mystic symbol that bonds/unites them for a sorority. What harm? The women consented. So what if it’s a master-slave group, maybe they’re just kinky?”

But the fact that it was his initials – that he marked women like cattle – as his slaves – with his brand – his initials – on the pubic region – that caused outrage. It also killed the notion that it was a sorority.

It was the combination of all three: branding women, on their pubic regions, with his initials, that landed him in prison.

Ah Raniere, if only he was a little smarter, he’d still be in business today.

Viva Executive Success!

  • To everyone,

    Re Shadowstate rebuttal to my comments regarding his deep and dark obsession with Allison Mack

    Shadowstate clearly has an obsession with the actress Allison Mack. Many readers besides myself have acknowledged Shadowstate’s obsession with the former Smallville actress.
    I attempted to illuminate this fact to Shadowstate so he realizes he has a problem. I asked Shadow a few questions and tried to highlight his obsession regarding Allison Mack in a diplomatic and polite way. Instead of contemplating my words Shadowstate went on the attack.

    Shadowstate did not answer any of the questions that I asked of him. Instead Shadowstate went into a rambling defensive tirade of deflection, ridiculous non-sequiturs, childish arguments, and denial ad nauseam.

    Here are some examples of Shadowstate’s defensive deflections and childish arguments:

    The first defensive act, Shadowstate went into a three paragraph critique of my use of just 2 emojis; explaining how no real educated adult uses emojis from his generation. Shadowstate went on to use 12 emojis. Shadowstate acted as child caught in a lie.

    Another example I used the word “groovy” to relate to our 60+ old friend, Shadow. Shadowstate then asked “Are you living in 1966 or did you watch too many Austin Powers movies?”, Shadowstate. Shadowstate instead of answering any of the serious questions I had for him instead harped on a solitary word “groovy” and 2 emojis.

    Shadowstate then for reasons only he understands brought up Donald Trump; as some kind of psychological defensive non- sequitur in a poor attempt to deflect from my questions. I voted for Trump and Shadowstate, knowing this fact, tried to twist it poorly in an oddly strange way.

    Shadowstate’s other ridiculous non sequitur was harping on the religion of SultanOfSix. I mentioned to Shadow how he shares a similar obsession with SultanOfSix; Shadow being in a state of denial about his own obsession then tried to deflect to Sultanofsix’s religion, Islam. Basically Shadowstate’s attack on Islam is yet another non sequitur. Shadowstate has mentioned Jewish global conspiracies before so his bashing Islam to deflect from his own insanity and dark obsession is not surprising. I asked no questions regarding Islam.

    Sadly, Shadowstate1958 is in deep phycological denial as to his obsession. Shadowstate defended himself by acting like a child. Shadowstate is unable to face reality the way an adult man should be able to.

    Clearly Shadowstate’s defensive reaction is only because deep down inside he knows his obsession with Allison Mack is very wrong and not normal.

    Tragically Shadowstate may be starting to suffer from Cognitive dissonance.

    I wish him the best.

  • I don’t seem to understand why all the back and forth goes on between all of you. You all seem like decent people but frankly, it’s getting pretty old. I’ve been reading this for about 3 years now give or take. And just all this bickering needs to stop. It makes you all look like your one of these lowlifes you’re trying to put away. You all should be celebrating your wins here, not bringing everyone down and taking on the parade. Even for Toni Natalie, she in her own way helped this get to be where Keith is gone forever. She may have a problem with some of her truths but I’m sure you all weren’t exactly right there 100% of the time to really say it’s all lies. So to keep picking on a woman who’s not well either is not making you look like the great guy who helped save these women. So, if she’s lying then it’s all going to come out so every day of putting her on notice is bullying somewhat. That’s the way I see it when I read these articles. It’s not doing any of you any justice far from it. And I’m not trying to say she’s right but bullying her is not helping

    .

    • Well said, Dominique. Coming from a long time/first time should hold more weight than coming from one of the regular commenters.

      Although this next part of my post may not seem like I agree with you, just in case your post helps to cause change on FR, I want to get these last shots in: Shadow is a crazy stalker. Niceguy is wishy washy. Flowers is really Elvis. Scott smells. All of Them Witches is a Mets fan. Dark VanDouche is a quitter. Frank loves Nancy. AnonyMaker is The Man holding us down. Shivani and Heidi – two straws, one milkshake.

      • Nutjob,

        “Wishy Washy?”…..

        Well, I guess that makes sense. I am a “Peanuts”, Charlie Brown fan.

        Are you then Schroeder or Linus?
        😉

        • You do lead the league in apologies… If I had to rip on myself, I’d probably call myself a wanna be ex-husband of Toni or something from that angle. How about this – Mitch Garrity named his fleshlight “niceguy”.

  • I just wanted to thank the Frank Report for doing what they should be and reporting the news and crimes that people are committing on a daily basis. Without these brave people, they would still be doing the same and getting worse and spreading their nonsense to more young women. Women who don’t understand or are in the grips of self-destruction and are easy targets for sick pathetic men like Keith. He couldn’t mess with smart, mature and upstanding women. So, unfortunately, he could only go for unlucky people that aren’t very well. And for anyone of these people who left or are still in this cult are 100% not well. So please stop trying to fool people; you look ridiculous because only unwell people join these sorts of gangs. So to speak. So for all the righteous people who took care of thses awful people I just have to say thank you and god bless may you receive all your blessings for doing the right courageous thing.

    Third shorter version…..

    Hi gentlemen, how are things?
    Are things groovy? 😉

    You both posted at the following dates and times:

    How about that 6 minutes apart in posting from one another. Coincidence? I think not. When anger fills a man’s head, he snaps to….

    You two are brothers of an ilk; Celebrity obsession is your bond. One brother is in the rapture of unrequited love; And the other brother has a kind of noxious hate. Odd bedfellows, but still bedfellows.

    A question to both of you…..
    Shadowstate1958 and SultanOfSix do you believe that either of you are any different than the other or better than the other?

    I personally believe we are equals, myself.

    Shadowstate wrote a letter to a Federal Judge, regarding a criminal sentencing he has no direct connection to; Beyond the hundreds of articles he has written on Allison Mack. There other criminals murders, rapists and child molesters; And Nancy Salzman, Clare Bronfman and Keith Raniere to write sentencing letters to judges or the Judge in this case Judge Garaufis…..
    ….Shadowstate1958 why not write letters on the worst criminals? Why write 90% of your articles and comments on Allison Mack?

    SultanOfSix has posted thousands upon thousands of posts defending and professing his feelings for Kristin Kreuk. Sultan has even kept the same alias for over 20 years, so that Kristin Kreuk will know “it” is he…..
    ……SultanOfSix how many men has Kristin Kreuk had relationships with as well as lain with? How many beaus over the years. Has Kristin Kreuk ever acknowledged her champion SultanOfSix just one time in 20 years?
    “Still fucking mentioning me”, SultanOfSix. Sultan you are still
    still scrolling the Frank report “at 8AM”, looking for mention of your name or the name of your betrothed. I have not mentioned your alias in over a month and only now as an example not as a direct attack…
    ….Is that normal?

    Both of you are supercilious to a fault and blind as to your places in the world……
    …….I myself am an average, ordinary, nice guy, schmuck, and crank. I am No hero, no saint and I have no true calling. 😉

    If I am obsessed with you both as you both say, it’s only because I see two grown men wasting their lives on obsessions; That will never come to any true fruition. Both your endeavors will yield no ripe fruit. Both of your machinations are not right and have no merit.

    You both hate me, because I hold the metaphorical mirror up to your faces. You see yourselves, as you truly are. You hate me because, in me, you both see yourselves.

    I wish both well!

      It’s worse than a heroin addiction. “Tee hee”!😁

    • So-called Niceguy:

      Emojis are not substitutes for complex rational arguments. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
      They are shorthand for teenagers on the internet to express simple emotions.

      “Are things groovy?”

      Are you living in 1966 or did you watch too many Austin Powers movies? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      “Shadowstate1958 and SultanOfSix do you believe that either of you are any different than the other or better than the other?”

      Is Sultan of Six a Muslim?
      If so, yes, I know that I am better than any Muslim .
      It is a so called religion that practices polygamy and where grown men can marry six year old girls.
      Moreover many Muslim women undergo female genital mutilation which is actually worse than the branding imposed by Keith Raniere and Allison Pimp Mack

      “….Shadowstate1958 why not write letters on the worst criminals? ”

      I have written sentencing letters to Judges before.
      In one particular case I wrote a sentencing letter to a Federal Judge in a case involving a Deputy Police Chief who was part of a drug trafficking conspiracy.
      And I had no particular involvement in that case.

      “You hate me because, in me, you both see yourselves.”

      So is that why you hate President Trump so much.
      You see yourself in Donald Trump?
      An intolerant man who can not stand to see independent people express different opinions.
      A man who has to control what other people say and do. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Lovely Niceguy but it will fall on deaf ears. Unfortunately, these two posters, along with their perfumed sister, will never see themselves for what they have become. It is the obsession that fuels them and gives them reason. They all feel they are crusaders of one sort or another. It’s completely inaccurate and the three of them would keep a good psychological researcher busy for a long time. Maybe a PhD candidate would take them on. It could be a good thesis.

    Side Note Re SultanOfSix:
    I can definitively state that there are 2 SultanOfSixs. The real Sultan I am corresponding with presently is the real SultanOfSix an he is not white and he is a Muslim man.

    The other gentlemen who purported to be Sultan(the white guy); Most likely did so to be flippant or to misdirect his true identity. I am very serious and almost completely positive, to the point I would wager $1000. NO KIDDING!

    I understand my most recent post is most likely to long so I edited to just the important points. The current version is much shorter.

  • Just like the French Revolution. First the aristocrats then their servants, then anyone who disagreed with the council.

    Now with Nxivm, first the inner circle, then the allies that helped bring down Raniere, then anyone who disagrees with the agenda of the Frank Report.

    Let us see if this gets posted…

  • There are a few faggots in the comments triggered that Nelson Mandela and Muhammad Ali were criticized. Your offence does not change facts.

    • It’s funny that you think those are “facts”. Those ramblings are likely just made up history by the white man. After all, the white man has never, ever done anything wrong. Slavery and Indian genocide was all just a myth created by the n**g*** and redskins.

      • They are facts. History is history. Many black South Africans have criticised Nelson Mandela. You are too lazy to research. Whites didn’t start slavery of Africans. The MUSLIMS did, for centuries, latter selling slaves to SOME European countries. Then they were freed, slavery outlawed (at the disapproval of Indian slavers who opposed the 13th Ammendment) and whites made Ottoman Turks end slavery. There was no genicide of any Indian tribe. None. There was zero plan or agenda to slaughter Indian people and wipe their genes off the earth. They want(ed) to live amongst themselves and still do. What Muslim Turks did to Greeks, Armenians and Assyrians was genocide. Many notorious jews and communists (and communist jews) created these narratives. Can you name them sultan? I can. Your hatred and jealousy of white people is toxic. China gets a free pass for invading Tibet and Taiwan. Japan gets a free pass for its WW2 activities. Mongols had the largest empire in the world. Muslims invaded, occupied and enslaved Europeans and Christians for centuries. Muslims created a booming African slave trade that went international, selling to the Spanish who they occupied for centuries. Slavic people were enslaved by Muslims (the word “slave” comes from “Slav”). Many many more facts that you don’t like. Deal with it. You are very jealous. Whites have been made the proverbial punch bags of the jealous whiney wankers. Colonialism and African slavery was conducted by others long before whites, for much longer then whites, was done TO whites, but whites are the ones who get the finger pointing and people are sick of it. Absolutely nothing you say can ever change facts, you ignorant uneducated degenerate. What did Irish, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Greek, Italian, Slavs and others do? Oh yes, they are white. The British Empire does not represent all white people and pointing out the dirty history of other racial groups and what they have done to others, including to whites, is delicious. Fuck you.

        • You are 100% right, Hakuna. The Ottomon empire was built on slavery. They enslaved white Christians, as it is ok to do so in the Koran.

          Yes, the Turks committed genocide.

          Yes, however, Andrew Jackson was no angel…

          This is not racism. This is history.

        • To Everyone:

          Regarding race, religion, and country superiority….

          Every group has blood on their hands at some point in their history.

          Get over it! People kill and murder to get what they want; even in defense; Do you want to survive?

          Murder and killing are natural acts. Are closest hominid relative chimpanzees share roughly 96% of the same genes. They murder each other to survive; and for pleasure on occasion.

          Every group below has blood on their hands at some point in their history:
          Race
          ethnic group
          Culture
          Country
          Monarchy
          Democratic government
          Communist government
          Fascist Government
          Religionist/Atheist groups to
          sex male or female
          class rich or poor

          You are all arguing and debating moral equivalence…..

          Here today’s lesson the strong rule the weak “shut the fuck up”.

          History is written by the conquerors not the conquered.

          • Can you name the most tolerant (to the point of insanity) racial category in the world?

            Can you name the racial group that is constantly hated on and poked at by other racial groups, in their own country no less, by people who originate from lands with zero tolerance and “diversity”?

        • Your post is pure irony. Filled with blanket generalizations of others, but when it comes to calling out the white man in the same way for his much larger list of transgressions, it’s a plethora of excuses wrapped in the obfuscation of the former. For fuck sakes, the United Kingdom engaged in the fucking largest land grab of the planet in history over a period of several centuries.

          Fuck you, you bigoted wanker.

          • Awwww, poor paki boy sultan… wahhhh😭

            What part of the British Empire (United Kingdon) does NOT represent all white nations, do you not understand you smelly curry pot cunt? What has that got to do with white people of non-Anglo heritage? Should Pakis be blamed for Japanese atrocities in WW2 because both are Asian? Should Filipinos be blamed for China’s horrific invasion and occupation of Tibet because both are Asian?
            Should European people like Swedes and Greeks that had nothing to do with colonialism and African slavery be blamed for the British Empire because both are white? Whites get shit on anyway. It’s fashionable for the left and jealous foreigners to talk shit about the “white man”.

            The largest CONTIGUOUS empire in history, the Mongol Empire emerged from the unification of Mongol & Turkish tribes under Genghis Khan. These were nomadic tribes. Britain achieved its empire through the seas and Navy.

            What part of “What did Irish, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Greek, Italian, Slavs and others do? Oh yes, they are white.” do you not understand Rasheed?

            You cannot debunk a single statement.

            The point is, only “white people” get blamed and shit on. It is forbidden to criticise other racial groups. You cannot critique them historically or for their behaviours today, without being called some kind of “ist” or “phobic”. You can’t win so resort to call people RACIST! Other responses are deflecting facts, projecting, censorship, de-platforming, lies, cancel culture, outrage culture, etc.

            And the point is, people are sick and tired of it.

            You are a “bigoted wanker.” You don’t like white people, especially when they are assertive and throw things back at you. You don’t like it when white people fight and argue back. What you going to respond with Hassan? Throw out the “white supremacist” tag? How about Nazi?

            Cry some more. Then you can use your salty tears as lubricant to wank with while thinking about Kristin Kreuk’s mosquito bite sized boobies. You still have not put your Taj in her Mahal, have you Spanky? Ha! 👳🏾‍♂️

          • –What part of the British Empire (United Kingdon) does NOT represent all white nations, do you not understand you smelly curry pot cunt?

            Who said it did you fucktard? That’s a strawman and how you fucking talk with your constant irrelevant digressions. You’re the one whining and bitching about white people being attacked, about white people wanting to live in their own countries, about the white father in Burden of Truth being generalized as some common enemy, as if you’re some common spokesperson for them. That’s because you’re a projecting bigot. You talk out of both sides of your mouth.

            You think I hate white people. That’s because you’re fucking retarded. I don’t hate anyone due to the color of their skin like you. That’s the dumbest, most ignorant “reason” to hate anyone for, due to something they never had any control over.

            –The point is, only “white people” get blamed and shit on. It is forbidden to criticise other racial groups.

            Maybe it’s because they’re the ones who have the most recent and encompassing colonialist history ridden with suppression and exploitation of other peoples and their lands. Derp. Just because other non-white people fuck each other over – which has been commonplace during the entirety of human history no matter the color of a person’s skin or the region of the world they’re from – doesn’t absolve whites from their wrongdoing. Your whataboutism is a tu quoque fallacy and common practice of your hero Trump.

            Whiny bitch.

          • “You’re the one whining and bitching about the white father in Burden of Truth being generalized as some common enemy”

            Erm, no. YOU just put words into somebody else’s mouth.

            “Maybe it’s because they’re the ones who have the most recent and encompassing colonialist history ridden with suppression and exploitation of other peoples and their lands.”

            Wrong. The BRITISH EMPIRE was the recent biggest empire and as already stated, do NOT represent all white people and all white nations. But you still hate on other white people who are not Anglo, because they are white, like the Brits are. Swedish immigrants will be shit on for being white, yet have nothing to do with the above British Empire, colonization and African slavery. Just because the British Empire was run by white people, does not justify hatred against other white people. It certainly does not prevent any white people from correctly critiquing non-white bigots, like your brown self.

            Also fag, The Ottoman Empire existed BEFORE the British Empire, existed throughout the British Empire and LONGER than the British Empire. Turks fought the “white man” during WW1 and didn’t bother fight the Nazis in WW2. They also kept African slaves BEFORE, AFTER and LONGER than whites and whites made them stop. They invaded and occupied HUGE swathes of territories, throughout Africa, the Middle East and Europe. They were worse than the British by far and used violence to steal. The Brits often used the pen, not the sword. And Turkey still exists committing atrocities to this day. The occupation of 37% of the Greek island of Cyprus, Greek Anatolia, West Armenia, forcing the last Greeks out of Constantinople in 1955, atrocities against Kurds, refusing to acknowledge their genocidal recent history, etc.

            Brits being recent colonizers does not excuse the Muslims and others who were worse and still recently fucking with others. And once again towel-head, not all white people are British. Therefore, most whites cannot be attacked for colonization and African slavery when they had nothing to do with any of it.

            “Just because other non-white people fuck each other over – which has been commonplace during the entirety of human history no matter the color of a person’s skin or the region of the world they’re from – doesn’t absolve whites from their wrongdoing.”

            Nothing you say absolves non-whites of their longer and more horrific reign of wrong doing. And you keep saying “whites” without specifying which ones. Sicilians? Slovakians? Irish? Cretans? Danish? Swedish? British Empire?

            “Your whataboutism is a tu quoque fallacy and common practice of your hero Trump.”

            There is NO fallacy faggot. That is what YOU do. Projecting and never accepting any wrongdoing about anyone not a “straight white male”. You cannot brush off things with projecting. And bringing up Trump… You people cannot help yourselves. Who said you are talking to a US citizen? Who said you are talking to someone who likes Trump, or voted for Trump? Who said Trump is their hero?

            “Whiny bitch.”

            No. Once again Spanky the Mud Hut Dweller, that is you. Your constant bashing and whining of those who don’t go along with your shit makes you a very brown and whiny bitch.

            Now go hoover up your prayer mat and scrub the dried third world semen off of it.

            It must suck to lose so badly.

          • — Erm, no. YOU just put words into somebody else’s mouth.

            Umm. Yes dummy. You’re the one whining about liberals, anti-white sentiment, Hollywood, etc., and other white racist tropes, projecting bullshit on a website with content that has no relevance to it until you try to tenuously connect the dots so you can spew your whiny racist bitch rants. You’ve made it all about your whiny bitch self. You’re always blaming the other when you’re the one who started it in the first place. Your last post is a just another in the long line of racist shit you’ve been posting since the beginning.

          • Spanky, you got owned! You cannot debunk anything said, so resort to attacks. Throwing out insults is not winning. Anyone with a few brain cells could read the above and agree with the content. And no, two flawed and overrated black people were critiqued and you got triggered. Do you still think Kristin Kreuk is communicating to you through television!? Sad little turban boy!

      • Could Nutjob be ANOTHER SultanOfSix alias?

        That tone. That delivery.

        It reads very, familiar.

        Reading that post, there was… how can I describe it…? A slight, chill. I could smell the stench of those familiar beetle fumes. A hint of curry, with some notes of cumin, garlic, low testosterone ejaculate and explosives.

          • LOL. Welcome to the “Everyone is SultanOfSix” club Nutjob! I see you and even fake Niceguy (accused in a comments below) are now card carrying members designated by the paranoid brigade. You are the newest additions after AnonyMaker.

          • Many here witnessed how you would hijack the comments in the past with your many aliases talking to each other, thinking that you were swaying opinion. Most folks here are not that stupid. From earlier Frank Report days, alias Wizard in the wings would talk to alias Jesse, who would answer the Judge alias , to the sultan, and it went on and on. No wonder your getting called out Spanky!
            .

          • It is scary for me to think that this creeper sultan might have been corresponding with my young girls on a KK internet site. Now I keep a better eye out for ass wipes like him and his kind. I think most here are hip to his alias crap and the only one he is fooling is himself. He has so many screen names that he has trouble spelling them the same twice ( Karl Basset/Carl Basset ) oh, and dont forget Scarrom, So Salty, SOS, Wasabi Steak, Seriously, Just to name a few from memory. He probably uses multiple names to get in good with our underage girls on these internet chats. Hope I see him on one of those shows where they set up and catch internet creepers.

          • “Many”; “we”; “us”. Still engaging in the same cult-like dialectic tactics inclusive of projection and the selective cherry picking a much larger history or the repetition of outright lies that you’ve always engaged in as if anyone with a semblance of a functioning intellect can’t see what you’re doing.

            The fact that you still think I’m “Wizard in the Wings”, “The Judge”, or “Jesse” (now joined with Anonymaker, Nutjob, Niceguy) shows how fucking paranoid you are. The first person rarely posted and mentioned they had many interactions in the entertainment industry and actually dealt with Kristin on a personal basis although she wasn’t part of her inner circle. “The Judge” is another fan of Kristin who went by m***67 on some of her forums, and Jesse is so obviously a female.

            How do you continue to throw shit at the broad side of a barn and still fucking miss? Keep accusing me of being everyone. It only makes you look crazier than you already are.

  • But what little is talked about is the branding that was done on the males. I have heard from many people who knew people inside the cult and James Delnegro the mini vanguard who is still running amuck, luring in dingy college students who dont know any better. To do his many perversions. James Delnegro also has the exact brand and many other men in the cult. Right next to his pussy. And James Delnegro was his no. 1. Why is he still ruining lives . Are you afraid of his 6’4 staturistic body. Are you intimidated by his 6 pack and his over whelming queer grin. Why is he not arrested as he left a paper trail of deceit and fraud. Why

  • Odd as this analysis may sound, as it turns out it’s absolutely true.

    Before the branding story broke, Frank contacted me with Toni (who, unbeknownst to Frank had already warned me off) but the pair of them could not convince me to go on record with FR or any other media outlet for the single reason that for decades prior NOTHING anyone ever reported about Keith Raniere or NXIVM to anyone ever resulted in an investigation and, more often, backfired on the whistle blowers — myself being one of those.

    Frank was adamant in predicting that this time —with the branding, of his monogram, on the pubis — Raniere would be finished.

    Well, Frank was right about Keith’s career but (and I could be wrong) it seems NXIVM is still unstoppable unless and until those corrupt individuals in Albany (with connections far beyond) who protected NXIVM for so long are compelled to take action or be put out of office.

    Note that even the branding that shocked the world has not moved any of them so far.

    What’s up with that alleged Trowel Investigation, anyhow?

  • I had to think about this one for awhile. Raniere made a lot of mistakes, and although branding in and of itself may not be criminal, it was the icing on the cake displaying his true narcissism and his true diabolic nature.

    I am also not sure the branding here was consensual, on many different levels. It’s not like the navy seals going out and getting a brotherhood tatoo together. Its much more sinister.

    Raniere is a complete asshole.

  • Raniere also made a serious mistake with his moronic lawsuits. particularly the patent lawsuit against A, T, & T claiming that he had invented teleconferencing.
    Corporate America does not like bogus patent lawsuits.

  • Keith is too narcissistic NOT to brand with his own initials.
    So…how come Crybaby Keith didn’t get branded?
    His fellow inmates could do him a favor and brand him with his correctional number.
    Just a thought to any inmates who might read this.

  • In the interest of clarity, it was Sarah’s HUSBAND that blew this wide open. Everyone has seemed to forget that part. I think she would have stayed if not for him calling BS on the whole DOS thing. I am sure she is grateful for a husband that was stronger than she, at that moment in her life.

    • I think anyone in SOP is an idiot. It’s his fault his wife got branded. I’ve always felt that your #1 job as a husband is to protect your wife. And if he can’t protect her, especially as a part of a group supposedly that exists to protect women, then it’s his own fault. He was in SOP for his own selfish reasons and ignored the dangers to his wife. It’s his fault and when he looks at that brand, he should know that he is the one that let it happen.

        • How about it’s THEIR job to protect each other and their children, first?!

          The saddest case is when one parent can’t protect herself or her children from the abuses of the other parent, especially when the abusive patent controls the finances and, historically, that has been abusive husbands and fathers vs. financially and emotionally dependent wives and mothers.

          Ultimately, female empowerment and independence protect CHILDREN where our money-driven society and justice system increasingly continue to fail them, miserably.

        • well you could be right SS. The distinction is that they were born idiots and they still are idiots; while it took SOP to turn them into eunuchs lol

    • ”Witch nxivm member(s) is this?”

      1) it’s “which”, not “witch”.

      2) why is calling Sarah Edmondson out a nxivm member thing? All nxivm members are cunts, including this woman. They are all pretentious, fake, assholes. Call out ALL the perpetrators.

      “Sarah Edmondson has suffered enough, even if by her own weakness. I can see it just drives people crazy she is “profiting” off of her book. So what, let her tell her story, and move on.”

      Suffered!? Don’t be silly. She loves all of this.

      Why use quotations for profiting”? She IS profiting, just like she did in nxivm.

      Saying “so what” don’t fly. You can’t dismiss accurate and justified criticisms of her with “so what”.

      • “Witch” was an intentional pun, I apologize you didn’t get it. I suppose if I have to explain the joke it wasn’t very funny.

        You sure appear very angry and bitter, beyond the normal response. To call everybody involved a cunt is extremely immature, not to mention ignorant.

        If you don’t think she suffered, come over to my house and I’ll brand you on your pubic region, But I’ll use your initials if you want.

        If you know anything about the book publishing and marketing, you must know that a person who is a nobody will make no money off of a book. Their main intent is to share their story. On the other hand if you’re somebody like Michelle Obama, you’re only reason to write a book is for profit. There’s a big difference but I wouldn’t expect most to know it if they knew nothing about publishing.

        I can say “so what” and dismiss the lunatics whenever I want. That’s the beauty of Amerika!!!! My point was that everybody’s making much ado about nothing.(re the book)

        Let me be clear, i believe it was HER responsibility to see the errors of her own ways, but my point was that her husband was the one that realized how absurd it was, even though he was in deep too. He finally said “enough”. And good for him, everybody in that organization was mentally messed up, that goes without saying.

        • Since Edmondson’s motivation for writing the book is to make herself some money to replace the money she used to make with NXIVM, by all means keep the profit, and throw out a line that “some” of the profit will go to charity, it will probably sell a few more books and increase the profit.

          If her motivation had been to help others not get scammed like she and others were with NXIVM, she should use her celebrity status and donate ALL of the profits to charity, she would probably sell a lot more books that way, much like Rush Limbaugh is currently doing with his “Step Up For Betsy Ross” shirts and related apparel, over $4 million in four months: https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2019/11/05/this-is-the-only-place-to-buy-new-stand-up-for-betsy-ross-items/

  • RE Raniere’s Three Mistakes:

    Three mistakes?!?!?!!!

    I believe Keith Raniere made a fourth much larger mistake…..

    ……Raniere should have gotten NXIVM recognized as a religion by the Federal government early on.

    The DOJ’s case would have been incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to prosecute had NXIVM been a federally recognized religion.

    Scientology and the Moonies are good examples of the difficulty in prosecuting a religious group or organization.

    People have disappeared and have mysteriously died while in Scientology care…

    Here is an article that explains how easy “it” is to start your own religion:

    https://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_55d24635e4b07addcb43bd60

    Raniere could have declared NXIVM a religion of philosophical and spiritual world beliefs.

    Raniere had superpowers just like all Messiahs and human deities.

    Raniere was a lot like a Ramtha.

    Remember the blue flames, and radar detectors going off in his presence, and let us not forget the times the rain did not fall on Raniere’s head……Raniere sounds like a Messiah to me.

    It’s not at all much of a stretch….

    ….Is it?

      • To Frankreport editors,

        Re My Quasi mini-article:

        Why will the Frankreport Editorial board publish/post the rantings and musings of the indomitable Shadowstate as well as the fervent SultanOfSix? ….

        But not publish my glorious thoughts?

        Am I just not a big enough crank?

        LOL

        😉

          • Requirements for Niceguy,

            Thanks for your help!!!!

            It must be the God damn library card that is holding me back. It expired 8 years ago.

            I have all of the other requirements. 😉

            LMAO

        • Very interesting point niceguy. I never thought about it that way. Poor Raniere, now it’s too late to make nxivm a religious organization.

        • Oh yes, ShadowPoof, haunted by the well padded ankles of Allison Mack in his dreams and SultanOfSix, the compulsive, delusional chronic masturbator, haunted by his toxic impulse to stalk the small breasted, flat bottomed NXIVM coach Kristin Kreuk. They make quite the double act.

          • You don’t know a damn thing about me except what you learn from stalking me you whiny, bigoted, crybaby bitch. You’re nothing but a fucking coward, waahing behind your anonymity with your false equivalencies, ad hominems, and other logical fallacies.

            Still fucking mentioning me. Still projecting your own moral sicknesses onto others and persisting in the lie that I’m AnonyMaker in a pathetic attempt to solidify building a wall around your own narcissistic delusions.

          • We know that you converse with underage girls on the KK sites. We know you have stalked KK for over a decade. We know you have used many aliases on Frank Report. We know you act like a little spoiled brat when you can’t push your agenda on others. You are a sick fuck, Mr. Spanker

          • You know jack squat. Making things up and incessantly repeating them while constantly referring to your juvenile self as a we doesn’t make them true, you whiny little bitch.

          • From Frank report 10-15-18 at 3:54 pm regarding girls by design “I also knew a few of the girls from one of her fan sites who took part in it and they said neither of the K’s tried to recruit them into Nxivm” So who is making things up you pedo stalker?

          • From Frank Report on 3-30-2018 at 6:49 am ” I’ve followed Kristin for over a decade. I’ve known about her NXIVM involvement for almost as long, since 2007/2008. I used to post quite frequently on her fan websites.” You call that “making things up” You said it spanky! And you have the nerve to call others a stalker, you sicko.

          • “You don’t know a damn thing about me except what you learn from stalking me you whiny, bigoted, crybaby bitch.”

            Learn how to read you fucktard.

    • Great point NiceGuy.

      I also think running to Mexico when learning of the investigation was not the smartest thing either.

  • https://www.instagram.com/p/B4iFPWHhe6r/

    Does that not make your stomach churn?

    This woman is full of shit, milking this shitty cult for all it’s worth, still profiting from her stupid NXIVM cult.

    This is attention seeking and this woman is wrong to publicly portray herself as the naive little victim who only found out NXIVM was evil after getting a burning hot hicky above her long passed it pussy.

    You have those NXIVM cowards refusing to talk because they are chicken shits with a lot to answer for and you have Sarah Edmondson who cannot stop whoring herself out.

    • She is in the main Indigo bookstore in Toronto.
      Indigo is Canada’s version of Barnes and Noble.

      “This is attention seeking and this woman is wrong to publicly portray herself as the naive little victim who only found out NXIVM was evil after getting a burning hot hicky above her long passed it pussy.
      You have those NXIVM cowards refusing to talk because they are chicken shits with a lot to answer for and you have Sarah Edmondson who cannot stop whoring herself out.” Look at this

      Everyone is NXIVM is or was a Grifter.
      That is why NXIVM will be reconstituted in some form.
      That is why the NDNY has to keep the heat on the NXIVM criminal gang.

      • Shadow and others – I would like to point out that but for Sarah Edmondson, we probably would not be here writing and discussing Nxivm. She was my confirming source for the branding and again she was the only woman brave enough to go on record and let the world see that she was branded. That took courage.

        • I agree but look what it took to wake Sarah Edmondson up to the realities of NXIVM.
          At best, NXIVM was an over-priced self-help group.
          Over time, Raniere’s personal fetishes turned NXIVM into a horror story and too few people opposed him until it was too late.

          So I am not criticizing her.
          Compared to Toni Natalie, Sarah Edmondson is a hero.
          My concern is that somehow NXIVM has enough covert supporters to revive itself in a few years.
          The goal should be to end these cults altogether.

          • Yep, Nikki Clyne still recruits. Barb Bouchey keeps saying she wants to bring the best of NXIVM to us mere mortals. Dr. Robetts still practices medicine. Shiver the thought of her attending patients.

            Brandon Porter thankfully lost his license BUT his wife feels they are sadly maligned, misunderstood and bullied. Really? Lol way too funny.

            Clare is bat shit crazy dangerous yet. All that money in those two evil hands of hers. Be wary, world, be wary. She yet lives.

            If anyone believes Lauren and Nancy are honestly contrite…..please, get real. They got caught, is all. Contrite my ass.
            Nancy was a scammer long before she met Keith.

        • Frank, respectfully, it might have taken a bit longer, but (my opinion) eventually the branding would have come to light. You are too persistent for it to have been any other way.

          The dichotomy of Sarah Edmondson is that she is indeed a victim, but probably should to some extent be held criminally or civilly liable (and I am not familiar with Canadian law) for her role as the leader of NXIVM’s Vancouver outpost.

        • Sarah Edmondson is not courageous. She is a flea on a dying dog’s back.

          Sarah Edmondson is like the snitch from the mafia or a terror group. They are still perpetrators out to save their own asses. They are not heroes, they are informers.

          Sarah Edmondson remained in NXIVM two months after getting branded. Any woman could have confirmed DOS to you.

          What you call courage, others may call attention-seeking. Her acting career would never bring her the same sort of attention she so obviously enjoys & craves.

          Sarah Edmondson cannot do a face-to-face interview with someone calling her out harshly without her coming out looking like a willing perpetrator, participating in and ignoring bad things.

          Do other stupid NXIVM members look at Sarah Edmondson and really see some naive innocent heroine who knew nothing, or can they correctly see a woman portraying herself as something she is not, just like VanCunt did – and profiting from it?

          A book, tours, interviews, television appearances, Dr fucking Oz!…. It all just looks so wrong and opportunistic.

          Remember, these people stayed through a whole ton of things and ignored it all. They enjoyed the money, status, and feelings of self-righteous importance. Only when they were personally affected did they leave.

          Sarah Edmondson and Mark Vicente were not low-level members who could step away quietly. They were running centers. If they were going to leave, they had to do so while talking to the feds. They knew what happened to Susan Dones who ran her own center and defected and they did not care about her. When there was a chance it could happen to them, they spoke to the feds and got immunity.

          Put them in front of someone on camera who doesn’t fall for their bullshit and let’s see them wriggle out of that.

          Sarah Edmondson did not display courage. Feasting on the carcass she helped build looks wrong. And her bullshit about creating a “foundation” for victims with a “portion” of the funds is her trying to buy gold points. Not falling for it. It’s like eating a top quality steak and once full, giving a tiny piece away in public to appear good.

          • Seems they all create foundations these days.
            Sara, Catherine…..hey Cindy and George Anthony did and even bouhgt a Bass boat with the money the better to search for missing children George said and Dr. Phil “donated” $650,000 to their bogus foundation.
            Look, it’s all a money grab and as long as there are suckers willing to part with their hard earned $$$ it will persist.

            I will give Sara kudos though for having the foresight to have given over all the information plus the credit card numbers to a lawyer away from Clare. She knew Clate would keep charging their cards long after they left NXIVM.
            Clare was furious! Tried to gain access physically and legally to no avail.
            Yet Clare has, and continues, to piss away her unearned trust fund on NXIVM.
            God….what a horror novel this would make. What a vrappy reputation each of these people will leave behind. They say all you take to the grave is your reputation.
            All their names will go down in history soiled. What a legacy.
            Ethics my ass. What a filthy lot of humans.

        • Not sure what’s so courageous about it. She profited off of NXIVM for over a decade and when VanTard got too cocky and did something really dumb which she was a victim of, she reported what happened to her and what was happening to others to the authorities who have far more power than the narcissistic clown. It’s not like she went into some burning building risking her life and limb and saved an infant or something of the kind. She’s continuing to profit on NXIVM using her supposed victim-hood, which is ironic considering what NXIVM supposedly taught about self-interest and victims.

          It’s courageous when you stand up to someone who has power over you for the right – like Muhammad Ali or Nelson Mandela – or you choose to walk the right path alone when everyone else is taking the wrong one.

          • Sarah Edmondson is a bullshiter.

            Muhammad Ali didn’t do shit. He was told what to do and say by the Islamic cult leader he followed. Lots of things he said, have been confirmed as lies. He claimed he chucked his Olympic medal in the water when he wouldn’t get served in a diner. His own brother said that was a lie. He was told to say “Vietcong never called me nigger” by his Islamic leader, but gets credited with it. Lots of bullshit around Ali. He was a puppet being told what to do and say. And he was never the greatest.

            Nelson Mandela was nothing special either. Others, including white South Africans were fighting apartheid too. The difference with Mandela was he was “royalty” in his native tribe, thus had some status amongst the opposition. He was targeted for that reason. Most people who know his name probably can’t name another anti-apartheid person. Very over rated. Not to mention he cheated on his wife constantly.

            Ghandi was a sexual deviant and pervert.

            Martin Luther King used to fuck a ton of women while married and it is alleged the FBI have evidence that he watched and encouraged a rape in a hotel room.

            Bob Marley’s wife claimed he raped her.

            All these people the left worship as deities are always overrated, corrupt and immoral.

          • Bitter, party of two(3,4 +)..Bitter…Party of two.

            Witch nxivm member(s) is this?

            Sarah Edmondson has suffered enough, even if by her own weakness. I can see it just drives people crazy she is “profiting” off of her book. So what, let her tell her story, and move on.

          • To first anonymous – If what Sarah did wasn’t courageous, why are most people afraid to use their own names on FR? Let alone do what she did. Maybe she deserves some of this hate she’s getting, but let’s not pretend she didn’t play a major role in this fight.

            To 2nd anonymous – Do you consider any people with white skin “overrated, corrupt and immoral”? I’m calling you a spade, spade.

          • Thank you for letting your hatred against two very well known black personalities who many people consider heroes drive your cray cray to miss the crux of the point.

          • Well said – Anonymous November 7, 2019 at 4:54 am,
            I was just Rofl until I realised it was wrong to mock the afflicted.

          • “To first anonymous – If what Sarah did wasn’t courageous, why are most people afraid to use their own names on FR? Let alone do what she did. Maybe she deserves some of this hate she’s getting, but let’s not pretend she didn’t play a major role in this fight.”

            My previous comment about Sarah not being courageous was not a dig at her. It was a dig at describing her as courageous which I don’t find to be true. I don’t see how anonymously posting on forums is remotely comparable. No one who does so has been described as courageous by others, and they would look like an idiot if they themselves claimed they were courageous.

            I don’t have any issues with Sarah Edmondson except for what I feel is her being opportunistic as a result of what happened to her in NXIVM. It just feels morally dirty to me to make money at NXIVM’s expense after the fact when you made so much money promoting it for over a decade.

          • I hear you. Keith was dangerous and mercilessly went after his enemies. That’s partly why people are still too chicken to use their real names on FR. Sarah could have slinked away in the night and begged Frank to remove any mention of her name from FR. But she took a different route than most of the other ex-nxivm leaders/members. Her decision to speak up, helped take down Keith. Maybe her decision was based on opportunism. I vote that she showed courage.

    • She stood up and showed the world what was going on. The amount of courage it took was considerable. I hope she does well with the book.

      • Methinks you don’t know what the definition of courage is. What courage is there to show a scar that you received in a secret ceremony to a major media publication? Is she out there dodging bullets or bombs from terrorists like a soldier often has to? How about chasing or engaging in shootouts with hardened criminals as a police officer? Maybe running into burning buildings or fighting massive wildfires like a fireman? Overcoming your embarrassment of being fooled to pull your jeans below your belt line to the media and show its audience that you got branded near your pubic area is not courage. Is this how low the standard line has fallen for courage? Give me a break.

        I have not a dot of sympathy for the negative end result NXIVM – they deserve every bit of it – but what appears to me to be little more than opportunistic and self-interested behavior from her after the fact of spending over a decade in this organization gives credence as to why she was taken in by NXIVM for so long.

        • Anonymous with the raised eyebrow….

          Methinks you have your ‘beaver down’ and can’t see reality. She knew that going public would probably destroy her entire life and did it anyway. That takes absolute courage.

          Methinks you should buy her book.

          Methinks you should read about her escape from Albany.

          Methinks you’ve been reading too much Milton and the bard.

          Methinks methinks should never be used in a 21st century chat forum.

          • “She knew that going public would probably destroy her entire life and did it anyway. That takes absolute courage.”

            What absolute rubbish. No she did not think her life would be destroyed. She was out to save herself as she was a high ranking defector. If she was low level, she could sneak away quietly. Don’t redefine the word courage, moron.

            And who are you? Sarah Edmondson herself? A relative or friend? Another dumbass NXIVM freak?

            Next time you see Sarah Edmondson, tell her to roll up a copy of her book and insert it up her vagina, where her stupid brand is. You are all worthless creatures.

          • –would probably destroy her entire life and did it anyway

            How? She relied on the fact that most people would be morally disgusted by the revelation that she was the victim of a secret group led by a man where women were branded into slaves and she was right. It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out nor courage to go to the authorities or tell this to a major media organization.

            –Methinks you should read about her escape from Albany.

            Escape? LOL. She was a high ranking member of the organization when she left, was in it for 12 years, and she flew back and forth to Albany on a consistent basis. No one was holding her against her will.

      • Don’t ignore the points made. Sarah Edmondson was out for herself and is now milking that cash cow for every drop. She clearly enjoys all the attention and money. If she didn’t go public, NXIVM would have gone after her for being a high ranking defector. She was and still is out for herself. Selfish and self serving, not courageous.

        • So is Barbara Bouchey, Toni Natale to name two.
          Even Catherine has a “foundation.”

          Hey! Maybe I will start a foundation. Any of you wanna donate? Lol😂😂😂😂😂
          PT Barnum was right, thete’s a sucket born every minute.

    • No it doesn’t make my stomach churn. You referring to Mrs Edmonson as a whore does. Toni’s the whore not Sarah IMO of course.

  • His Narcissism was his undoing. They feel they are invincible and that nothing can stop them. He stopped himself by seeing no limit to his power.

  • Frank, I agree with you but I also think the additional ingredient was Catherine Oxenberg’s celebrity name attached to one of the young women sporting a brand. If KAR hadn’t fallen victim to his fatal flaw of arrogance and kept pushing I agree he could still be lying in bed all day, eating pizza and texting with one of the many women at his beck and call.

    I also agree with Scott that the blackmail element added the necessary push for DOJ to investigate.

    I hope Frank’s stories concerning the Bronfman’s gets picked up and further charges are laid against them. The coffers need filling so hopefully the lure of fines will get them charged.

    • I agree with the point about the woman being a celebrity, because who cares about an “average” woman being cauterized near her pu$$y? But it was Edmondson, not Oxenberg, who had the primary influence on the NYT even showing her scar or covering the story at all.

      • Yes and it seems from the “Look at This” post above that Ms. Edmondson seems intent on getting as much mileage out of that photo and that brand as possible. The brand has become her brand so to speak, and she will be remembered more for that brand than any piece of acting she does on the oh so hallowed Hallmark Channel.

        Definitely a good career move, as Ms. Edmondson was nearing the end of her shelf life as an actress, as it would not appear that she has the talents or appeal of a Vanessa Redgrave, Meryl Streep, Judy Dench or Helen Mirren (admittedly, not many do). Also a good career move in that her husband, maybe the second stupidest man to ever graduate Harvard (right behind Emi Salinas, dancing in his green shirt to please his Vanguard), probably can not be expected to keep a roof over her head and tea in her mug.

        But Anthony Ames aka Nippy aka Mr Sarah Edmondson is a MANLY MAN. Upon finding out that his wife had been branded like a piece of cattle, he sent an ANGRY email to Nancy Salzman. I guess beating the stinking shit out of the man ultimately responsible for branding his wife would have been an “ethical breach”, not to mention the fact that Raniere was the goose providing the golden eggs. I guess this is why Mr. and Mrs Edmondson did not report the branding of scores of women immediately after the fact?

        Bottom line: even as an alleged victim, Ms. Edmondson continues to profit (monetarily or in terms of keeping herself relevant) from NXIVM. Her brand should be a constant reminder of her own stupidity and gullibility, and if Nippy is still allowed to travel in that territory he should be reminded of his failure to protect his wife each time he sees the mark of the Vanguard.

          • I agree with the conclusion. His celebrities helped built the cult. And they helped draw the attention that cratered it.

            But Raniere was going to eventually self destruct. That’s what he was born to do. If branding women and turning them into his sex slave didn’t do the trick, he’d have kept pushing the envelope.

  • If it wasn’t for Frank, Raniere would probably still be out there committing ever more serious crimes. Others deserve a lot of credit, but it was Frank who brought things to the point of decisive legal intervention.

  • In Roman Catholic theology, demonic possession begins to occur when the individual gives over their will and decision-making to a foreign entity. Raniere “in flesh” acted exactly like the demonic entities described in said theology. Exactly!

  • I think the fact that he branded these women under a group that effectively glamorized slavery as female empowerment and its revelation during the height of the #metoo movement which was perpetually on the front page of entertainment and other forms of news for weeks on end also played a significant part.

    Had he not been the leader and these women were simply doing this on their own and for themselves, I don’t think it would’ve garnered such media negativity.

  • It also helped tremendously that the NYT published a PICTURE of the brand. Just talking about it doesn’t have the same impact as a woman pulling her pants down a bit and exposing the brand in a PICTURE.

    • Scott is exactly right. That photograph grabbed people’s attention.

      It grabbed mine along with Allison Mack’s name attached. In fact, Allison Mack’s name recognition helped to boost the story to a larger audience.

      Mack’s Smallville was shown all around the world. Smallville was on tv for a decade. Mack ended up being a tremendous liability.

      But at the end of the day, the article and the photo of Sarah got the story out to the masses!

  • Mr. Frank

    You are being a bit modest here. Because before Raniere 2)branded women 3) on their pubic region 4) without their consent, he 1) pissed off Frank Parlato.

    Is that iron scow going over the falls anytime soon?
