New MK10ART Paintings on the Topic of Nxivm and Its Horrors

MK10ART continues to delight readers of Frank Report with her captivating work. She has immensely helped Frank Report illustrate the gruesome and self-serving world of Nxivm.  Below are some of her latest paintings.

After each painting, MK10ART’s comments follow (in bold text) – which sometimes are quotes from Frank Report stories. Following that, I will make some additional comments as needed.

MK10ART publishes her work on Instagram; see more of her work there.


#HillaryClinton and #BillClinton fixer #RichardMays was good friends of #Nxivm leader and convicted felon/paedophile #KeithRaniere

Nxivm raised a lot of money for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign illegally.  #ClareBronfman told Nxivm members to donate as much money to the Clintons foundation and Bronfman would reimburse them.


Richard Mays is a part of the old guard Arkansas Democratic political establishment. Keith Raniere arranged for the Bronfman sisters to pay him a substantial sum of money. He was assigned a variety of tasks including procuring the indictments of Rick Ross and Joe O’Hara in Arkansas. He was unsuccessful. That might be because they did not commit any crimes.

Mays appeared in a video with Raniere as part of the “Conversations with Keith Raniere” series. Unlike other consultants who came and went, Mays seemed to have stayed in the good graces of Bronfman-Raniere for more than a decade (He even had one of his children taking NXIVM trainings). As far as we know, Mays still supports the group. It is uncertain if he is still on the payroll.

His biggest claim of help was his association with the Clintons. I think it fair to say that if Hillary Clinton had been elected president, between Mays, and Hillary’s friendship with Bronfman’s father – and the generous – if illegal contributions to Hillary – Clare and Sara made to her campaign, Keith might have fared a lot better. Indeed, he might not have been charged at all.

It was a Trump appointee, US Attorney Richard P. Donoghue, who led the charge to indict Raniere, Bronfman, and company. If Hillary had been in office, she would have appointed someone affiliated with the Democratic party that Bronfman and Raniere supported.

Would Hillary have intervened n the decision to prosecute Keith Raniere had she been elected?


In a sick twisted irony of #Nxivm #KeithRaniere (who was found guilty of human trafficking among other felonies) starred in a Mexican movie where he claims to save them from criminals by using a two arm signal to alert people to react.  This was Raniere’s genius answer to stop crime in Mexico.  Watch video still available on Youtube here  titled Encender el Corazon Trailer


Encender el Corazon (Ignite the Heart) is a docu-drama that began shooting in 2008, when filmmaker and Nxivm member Mark Vicente was an ardent follower of Raniere. It was to document efforts of a non-violent citizens movement called Inlakech and morphed into a propaganda piece for Keith Raniere. Clare Bronfman funded the film which meant Vicente did not have control of the final product.

The ‘glorious’ leader called #Vanguard aka #Keithraniere is scheduled to be sentenced on January 17th, 2020

Former #Nxivm #dosslave Sara Edmondson describes her experience and relief from Raniere’s incarceration and conviction in a podcast show called ‘Uncover – Escaping Nxivm’


Raniere’s sentencing date has been postponed. It will probably be set sometime in late February or March.

As her sister prepares to go to prison, Sara Bronfman escapes all charges by running away and hiding in France with her husband Basit Igtet. Basit (with Sara’s support) tried to take over the Libyan government with #Nxivm leader #keithraniere but failed.

Nowadays, Sara is busy destroying children’s minds with Nxivm-based educational centers called Rainbow Cultural Garden.


To me, it is stunning that Sara Bronfman was not charged and not even named as one of the inner circle of Nxivm by the feds. Sara took over Barbara Bouchey’s role in Nxivm when she left. Sara replaced Barbara on the board of Nxivm and organized Vanguard Week.  In addition, Sara funded the destruction of others by funding Raniere’s ruthless legal [and extralegal] vendettas.


#LaurenSalzman was brought into #Nxivm by her mother #NancySalzman and soon after #keithraniere seduced her. Lauren desperately wanted an avatar baby with Raniere but he kept denying her wish.

Keith Raniere “…used this woman’s highest hope – motherhood – as a bludgeon to batter her.”

This went on for 20 years – through Lauren’s 20s and 30s. She is now 42 and about to go to prison.
After they were all arrested, Lauren’s mother, Nancy, was the first to take a plea deal with prosecutors ensuring that she would get the lightest sentence. Nancy Salzman won’t be winning ‘Mother of the Year’ award.


Frank Parlato of with #SaraBronfman #ClareBronfman #ToniNatalie and #keithraniere behind him


#Nxivm #keithraniere aka Vanguard spends his 2nd Christmas in jail.


Vanguard got a lovely bag of goodies – as did all inmates at MDC – for Christmas and MK10ART has painted a depiction of the lad enjoying his treats. He is well suited for a cage-like existence for he is, in fact, a very vicious animal.


Women in #Nxivm “These were volunteers who had free will and who allowed their free will to become subverted, squelched, dominated and commanded to cooperate with #KeithRaniere’s AND the group’s incentives and requirements. Step by step, each shut down common sense. Or perhaps some had little common sense in the first place. Each kept deciding to support the slaughterhouse as Utopian. So, just how much does one feel sorry for them, either individually or as a group? This kind of evaluation is going to be pretty subjective, according to the thoughts and experiences of the observer, the one or ones doing the evaluating. People seem to have a lot of different responses regarding what combo of compassion, pity, scorn, anger, disgust, willingness to excuse or not to excuse a myriad of individual participants, as well as the group as a whole. … Peer pressure would have been hugely influential, appearing to make the group look successful, reasonable, desirable, magnetic. But I am not sure to whom it would have appealed. There had to be identifiable ” types” who were people who would not bother to think for themselves much, if at all. They had to want to join. They had to be willing to believe Raniere’s sexual persona was worth supporting. “


The painting is of M.I.A. a singer who came to a Nxivm retreat on Necker Island. The singer seems to share a lot of Raniere’s illegal and violent propensities – if the lyrics of her songs are any way to judge.

Wonderful new art!

I’d like to know what who’s in office should have to do with any criminal prosecutions in a Nation allegedly “Ruled by Law” to begin with (not that it doesn’t).

A few years ago, I interviewed Ernest Bourgnine (last interview before he passed away), a very patriotic gentleman — his home is an homage to Abe Lincoln — who shared, stressed his belief that political party allegiance has become a divisive, controlling and corrupting factor on American society to the degree that it may sadly be the ruination of democracy and this Country, altogether.

Since Mr. Bourgnine opened my eyes to this, I do see this contrived political polarization all around US and realize his words were prophetic.

What you’re saying about the Clinton’s, Frank, may be too true — Hillary did reign as the US Senator for New York during Raniere’s ‘rise’ and law enforcement DID not only ignore NXIVM crimes but deliberately dogged NXIVM whistleblowers on a National — nay, International, considering Canaprobe — scale.

Further, I believe there’s evidence to suggest the Clinton’s may have helped make Albany, NY a refuge for elitist, illegal immigration and drug cartel money laundering through, in part, the NXIVM cult — but to give the Trump presidency credit for the *limited* NXIVM indictments is only playing the B side of the same, warped LP record.

Didn’t work for unpardoned Roger Stone, btw. Nor does it say much for Trump’s (or Donahue’s) influence on his home state that he can’t get the NDNY to investigate and indict NX Upstate crimes — which were by far the worst and, if duly charged, would help ensure the end of this criminal cartel and protection of its most affected, yet vulnerable citizens.

Seems to me that NXIVM put their Bronfman and Salinas gains directly in the greedy hands of key, corrupt legal players and PI agencies to search and destroy opponents and to shield themselves from prosecution, regardless of those players’ political affiliation — they were in it for the money, period.

I doubt Steve Coffey, Rodger Kirsopp, Dennis Burke, Juval Aviv even Richard Mays — to name a few — give a hoot about Hillary or the Donald as long as their next NX check clears.

Rant over. I find MK’s artwork very moving.

I doubt Vicente would have changed much in the movie at that time. However, this does illustrate the real meaning behind the “I’ve had people killed because of my beliefs” BS. The two-armed sign was interpreted as “please shoot me” by the drug cartel thugs and they were more than happy to oblidge. LOL For any of you who doubt me, listen to the recording and tell me what is meant by what Raniere says immediately prior to the above quote and then instantly pivots to another meaning.

Gosh, thanks, Mr. Shadow. I thought Mexico was a nice place. Plenty of sun and fun. Who needs a border when we have such fine people south of us?

Every Judge and politician who favors Open Borders with Mexico should be compelled to read that story about how the sex traffickers control a town just 60 miles outside of Mexico City.

Of course, many of them still won’t care.

I doubt that town is alone using that model. They should also listen to a couple of my radio shows, we had a main actress from the movie “8 Days” and the woman the movie is based on as well. Both are currently involved in anti-sex trafficking activities.

My opinion: Even if Raniere had been indicted under a Hillary presidency, at the very least he never would have been forced out of Mexico.

Raniere’s arrest occurred during a “sweet spot” when the US government finally got serious about investigating NXIVM and the Mexican government finally decided not to give refuge to a notorious criminal.
Such sweet spots are few and far between.

Sex Trafficking in Mexico is Committed with the Complicity and Protection of the Mexican Police.
Lara Logan and US ICE agents are are attacked by Mexican Police protecting Sex Trafficking.

Exclusive video: Lara Logan cornered by Mexican police, threatened while investigating sex-traffickers’ city

Veteran war correspondent Lara Logan was cornered by Mexican police and threatened with the prospect of violence while investigating one of the world’s most notorious sources of human trafficking — a small city deep inside Mexico.

Logan and her team traveled to Tenancingo in October 2019 as part of her soon-to-be-released Fox Nation series, “Lara Logan Has No Agenda”

The city is less than 60 miles outside of Mexico’s capital, yet what they found was a society built on sex trafficking — and the police appeared determined to protect the enterprise.

“Do you know of any other towns — anywhere — that is like this?” Logan asked Thomas Countermine, a supervisory special agent for Homeland Security Investigations, as their convoy of three vehicles rolled through the dusty streets.

“I haven’t found one quite like this,” said Countermine, who specializes in taking down trafficking rings in New York City.
Homeland Security Investigations is the investigative arm of the Department of Homeland Security. Its agents have long been focused on shutting down the brutal trafficking pipeline from Mexico to cities around the U.S.

In 2014, a federal judge in Manhattan sentenced two brothers, both natives of Mexico, to life sentences for helping orchestrate a sex trafficking operation connected to Tenancingo.

Prosecutors estimated that more than 400 women were exploited by the scheme. At least one of the victims was 17 years old. The judge said at the sentencing that the brothers had run “a depraved and deplorable sex mill,” according to The New York Times.

“Millions and millions and millions of dollars, hundreds, probably thousands of women have come from Tenacingo to our area in the United States, send money back and basically built this town,” said Countermine.

So are there scouts sort of tracking us as we move through the town?” observed Logan.

“That’s what it appears,” replied Countermine glancing out the window.

Moments later, a Tenacingo city police truck pulled out from a side street, directly into the path of Logan’s convoy.
“Let me get out. Let me get out. Let me get out,” said Gus, who jumped out of the backseat and approached the police.

Gus, whose real name was withheld to protect his identity, is another Homeland Security Investigations agent based in Mexico City. Logan kept the cameras rolling as Countermine warned that the local police would likely get very upset if they saw that they were being filmed.

Then another police truck pulled up — again directly blocking the crew’s vehicles.

“The police are guardians of the traffickers and their secrets, moving in to force us out — a veiled threat,” narrated Logan in the Fox Nation show.

“We’ve been asked to depart the area,” Gus reported back. “About a week ago, they did lynch a couple of people that were here, just asking around about the town.”

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.
