What the fuck was I thinking?

Allison Mack Accused of Being Sex-Slaver in Nxivm Civil Lawsuit

When it became known that NXIVM was under investigation by the FBI, Keith Alan Raniere, Clare Bronfman, Lauren Salzman, Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne and several others fled the United States and went into hiding in Mexico.

On March 26, 2018 the Mexican Federal Police captured Raniere and turned him over to the FBI.

On April 19, 2018, a three-count indictment was unsealed in the EDNY charging Defendants Raniere and Mack with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and conspiracy to commit forced labor.

On July 23, 2018, a superseding indictment was unsealed charging Raniere, Clare Bronfman, Mack, Kathy Russell, Nancy Salzman and Lauren Salzman with racketeering conspiracy, forced labor conspiracy, wire fraud conspiracy, sex trafficking conspiracy, sex trafficking, attempted sex trafficking,and conspiracy to commit identity theft.

On March 13, 2019, a Second Superseding Indictment was unsealed. The Second Superseding was similar to the first except for the dismissal of Nancy Salzman as a result of her guilty plea. And Raniere, Bronfman, Mack, Russell, and Lauren Salzman were charged with racketeering conspiracy, and racketeering; and four predicate racketeering acts were added, including two acts of sexual exploitation of a child, and one act of possession of child pornography, [Cami] and one act of visa fraud.

The child porn and sexual exploitation of Cami spooked all the codefendants of Raniere and in shot order they all took plea deals.

On April 8, 2019, Mack pled guilty to racketeering conspiracy, and racketeering. She admitted committing racketeering acts of state law extortion; and forced labor.

Now she is facing a civil lawsuit.

Many think the former actress is a victim and has been punished enough already.  But the civil lawsuit, much like testimony in the trial of Keith Alan Raniere, paints a different picture of Mack, other than an abused victim.

She comes across as a sex-slaver

The case is SARAH EDMONDSON; TONI NATALIE; MARK VICENTE, JANE DOES 1-13, JANE DOES 15-39, JANE DOES 41-60; JOHN DOES 1-17, and JOHN DOES 19-20,

v. : KEITH RANIERE; NANCY SALZMAN; CLARE BRONFMAN; SARA BRONFMAN; LAUREN SALZMAN; ALLISON MACK; KATHY RUSSELL; KAREN UNTERREINER; DR. BRANDON PORTER; DR. DANIELLE ROBERTS; DANIELLA PADILLA BERGERON; ROSA LAURA JUNCO; LORETA J. GARZA DAVILA; MONICA DURAN; NICKI CLYNE; NXIVM CORPORATION; EXECUTIVE SUCCESS PROGRAMS, INC.; ETHICAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION; and FIRST PRINCIPLES,

[Ed. Note: Although I know the identity of some of the Jane and John Does, I will honor the anonymity provision of the lawsuit, except where the victims have already gone public. A few have testified in the trial of Raniere and I may identify them as they were identified in the trial.]

So with all those defendants where does the comely actress fit in?

Sadly for her fans, not too well

Here is where Allison Mack figures into the lawsuit.

She was a leader of DOS, which began in 2015.

According to the lawsuit, it was headed by Raniere and Mack, Lauren Salzman, Rosa Laura Junco, Daniela Padilla Bergeron, Loreta J. Garza Davila, Monica Duran, and Nicki Clyne, the First Line Masters.

DOS First-Line Masters, and their master is the terrific dude in the middle.

The lawsuit alleges quite a bit about DOS, which our readers are familiar with:

  1. First Line Masters were tasked with selecting attractive, trustworthy women who could become sexual partners for Raniere.
  2. Recruits were told they were being invited to join a sisterhood, which would empower them to overcome weaknesses.
  3. Recruits were told DOS offered a unique opportunity to enter a one-on-one mentorship with leading Nxivm women
  4. Recruits were told DOS was an all-female group
  5. It was a “once-in-a-lifetime “opportunity.”

Of course, as readers know, and as the lawsuit,alleges, “DOS recruits were required to provide ‘collateral’ to prove their trustworthiness.”

Collateral consisted of

  1. assets
  2.  compromising confessionals
  3. letters falsely accusing close family members or friends of unethical, immoral or illegal conduct
  4. nude photos
  5. nude videos
  6. other materials that would, if released, subject the recruits or their loved ones to loss, humiliation or shame.

We know the story:

As the lawsuit alleges, “After supplying collateral….  DOS was revealed to the recruits. But to their surprise and dismay, they were told that now, before they could learn about the structure and nature of this sisterhood, they had to provide additional humiliating and damaging collateral. Thus, before knowing anything about the internal workings of DOS, they were trapped, fearful that if they did not do precisely as instructed, the collateral that they had already provided would be released.”

This, of course, is a point that might be debated. After giving the first collateral, which some could argue was stupid to begin with, you learn that there is a master slave relationship.

That might be a good time to stop. But it turns out that the DOS First Line Masters, including Mack, were not terribly forthcoming. No, in fact they lied.

The lawsuit alleges that it was only after the second batch of collateral was given that “the recruiter/master revealed a little more about DOS: that it was a pyramid of ‘master/slave’ relationships, explained as no different from a guru and disciple or a mentor-mentee relationship, which would strengthen women by testing and challenging their boundaries but would require absolute trust and obedience by ‘slaves’ to their ‘masters.'”

But the slaves were never told that Raniere created and ran DOS.

When asked, the First Line Masters denied Raniere’s involvement and did not tell the slaves that the collateral “was intended to coerce women into a lifetime of personal servitude; and that the ultimate objective of DOS was to recruit and groom women for sexual slavery under their ‘grandmaster – Raniere.”

DOS was, the lawsuit alleges, created to develop a pipeline of attractive young women for Raniere.

The lawsuit also paints a picture of what life was like in DOS.

  1. caloric deprivation
  2. 500-800 calories per day
  3. having to ask permission to eat
  4. having to weigh food and calculate calories precisely
  5. having to send photographs of everything they ate to their masters
  6. sleep deprivation
  7. arduous physical labor
  8.  performance of menial tasks
  9. punishment for failure to comply with their masters’ commands.
  10. be available to their masters twenty-four hours a day
  11. subject to a stress-inducing sleep-deprivation technique referred to as “readiness drills,”
  12. punishments which included long cold showers,
  13. extended periods doing “planks,”
  14. ridicule,
  15. extreme diets,
  16. stripping naked and being paddled on the buttocks
  17. and more
  18. “Slaves” cleaned their masters’ homes
  19. shopped for groceries (at times with their own money),
  20. buy gifts for their masters,
  21. do their work for them
  22. be available for sex with Raniere on demand.

So why would anyone do this?

As the lawsuit alleges, “’slaves’ were acutely aware of the ultimate punishment hanging over their heads: the very real threat that their collateral would be released”.

And …”‘Slaves’ were… in a constant state of near-starvation, sleep deprivation, forced to physically exert themselves and push themselves well beyond exhaustion, always anxious and fearful that anything they said or asked might be interpreted as rebellious and subject them to punishments, both mental and corporeal.”

“Not a single DOS member,” the lawsuit alleges, “understood when she gave that first collateral that she was signing up for a life of servitude and sexual slavery under a cruel grandmaster [Raniere] and his circle of mistresses.”

MK10ART’s portrait of the secret, cruel Grandmaster of DOS, Keith Alan Raniere

Of course we get to branding

 

Marie White’s horrifying painting of the branding.

The lawsuit describes it as “a secret ceremony, [where DOS slaves] were forced to disrobe, read from a script stating they requested to be branded, lie down on a table, and submit to branding with a cauterizing iron in their pubic region. No anesthesia was administered during this procedure, which was extremely painful. The ceremonies were recorded, thereby creating an additional piece of collateral. They were told that the brand was a symbol representing the elements of nature. Only later did they come to realize that they would be carrying Keith Raniere’s initials around with them for the rest of their lives.”

Let’s get to Allison Mack’s unseemly role

In the lawsuit, almost all of Allison’s alleged offenses involve her role in DOS.

They involve Jane Does 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 28 and Sarah Edmondson and quite frankly others not named.

Allison Mack was specifically mentioned as perhaps the most ruthless of the First Line Masters who reported directly to Raniere.

The lawsuit mentions that “Mack recruited her own ‘slaves,’ who were required to recruit their own, as well. All the women in Mack’s line of slaves were obligated to serve her and comply with her directions. This was true of each First-Line Master’s line of slaves.”

And again, “When the slaves defected, many of them wrote to Mack, as well as Lauren Salzman, Nancy Salzman, and Clare Bronfman, pleading for their collateral to be returned or destroyed. Lauren Salzman would pass such pleas along to Clare Bronfman. No collateral was ever returned or destroyed.”

Allison Mack Sex Slaved Jane Doe 2

Jane Doe 2 was recruited into DOS, [then referred to as The Vow] by a “slave” [India] of Mack’s.

Jane Doe 2 provided collateral and did unpaid work for the DOS “slave” [India] and Mack.

I don’t think we are revealing too much by saying that Jane Doe 2 is Jaye who testified in the Raniere trial.

The Lawsuit alleges: “Jane Doe 2 had frequent direct communications with Defendant Raniere, both in person when she visited Albany and through text messages, wherein among other things he promised that, if she moved to Albany, she could start an ‘ethical’ t-shirt business with him (a ploy he had previously used on others to draw them closer to him).”

[The ploy, of course, was to promise to start a company, which he would help fund and provide his unique genius.]

Unsurprisingly, the t-shirt company and all of its equipment was owned by Clare Bronfman.

The lawsuit continues, “After Jane Doe 2 moved to Albany and gave collateral several times, Defendant Mack instructed her to have sex with Raniere, stating that this was a special assignment that would help her get over trauma from past [sexual] abuse.

“Mack further insisted that Jane Doe 2 photograph the encounter, and she told Jane Doe 2 that she had Mack’s ‘permission’ to enjoy the experience.

“Go ahead my lovely, I give you permission to enjoy having sex with beautiful Keith Raniere. You are so lucky.”

The language which follows was used not only for Jane Doe 2 but for the other sex slaves trafficked by Mack.

“Eventually, the shame and humiliation of what she had to do as part of The Vow was more than she could bear, and Jane Doe 2 informed Mack that she was repudiating her Vow and requested that her collateral not be released. Paralyzed by the dual fears of release of her
collateral and the Defendants’ infamous abusive legal tactics, Jane Doe 2 left the NXIVM community and kept silent about her experience.”

Now this next part will not come as a surprise:

“Subsequent to her departure from NXIVM, Defendants Raniere and Clare Bronfman directed a co-conspirator [I believe this to be Alex Batancourt] to cause false criminal charges to be lodged against Jane Doe 2.

“Raniere and Clare Bronfman then instructed an attorney to send Jane Doe 2 a letter threatening legal action if she told anyone about what Defendants did to her. That letter and the charges have never been rescinded, and thus Jane Doe 2 is still subject to this
intimidation.”

“As a result of Defendants’ scheme, criminal acts, and misrepresentations and omissions, Jane Doe 2 was emotionally and financially harmed.

“Also, as part of Defendants’ scheme, Jane Doe 2 performed uncompensated labor, working for many hours without compensation for the benefit of the Defendants.”

Mexican attorney Diego Ruiz Duran was retained by Alex Betancourt, and paid by Clare Bronfman, to threaten DOS slaves who wanted to escape.
Green-sashed Alejandro Alex ‘El Duce’ Betancourt terrorized women under Clare Bronfman and Vanguard’s direction. My sources tell me he is cooperating with the plaintiffs which may be why he was not named in the civil suit.

Jane Doe 3 – another Allison Mack victim

Jane Doe 3 was recruited into DOS, then referred to only as The Vow, by a DOS “slave” of Mack’s.

Throughout her time in DOS, Jane Doe 3 was given direction and commands directly from Mack.

After Jane Doe 3 moved to Albany and gave collateral several times, she was instructed to have sex with Raniere. Jane Doe 3 acquiesced out of fear of punishment and release of her collateral.”

Unlike Jaye [Jane Doe 2], this unfortunate woman actually had sex with the beastly one.

If you want a picture worth a 1000 words as to why this is a serious crime and worthy of significant financial recompense look at what she had to touch. Imagine the fear and loathing combined.

Allison Mack had her collateral and coerced her to have sex with this odious and malodorous creature.

Image result for warning sign

 Keith Alan Raniere.

Like Jane Doe 2, Clare and Keith and El Duce went after her to lodge false criminal charges and send threatening letters.

The lawsuit alleges, “The letters caused her to experience tremendous fear and intimidation, and instead of coming forward and speaking with an attorney or authorities, she went into hiding and avoided contact with authorities for a period, even after learning that the FBI was investigating the Defendants and others. Those letters and charges have never been rescinded.”

But Mack is not done. Jane Doe 4

Jane Doe 4  worked for Mack and Raniere’s “The Source,” NXIVM’s purported curriculum for actors.  She taught 2-hour long classes three times a week. Mack recruited Jane Doe 4 herself .

Sneaky Mack required Jane Doe 4 to provide collateral. After she got collateral, Mack revealed their relationship would be  “master” and “slave,” and Jane Doe 4 was required to continue giving collateral, “which Jane Doe 4 provided out of fear that her previously provided collateral would be released if she did not comply with all of Mack’s demands.”

Mack assigned Jane Doe 4 to establish contact with Raniere and do whatever he told her. Mack informed her that if she failed, there would be punishment. Raniere demanded that Jane Doe 4 engage in sexual acts with him.

“Out of fear of punishment and release of her collateral, Jane Doe 4 unwillingly acquiesced to Raniere’s demands.”e Defendants.

I believe Jane Doe 4 is none other than Nicole, who testified in the trial of Keith Alan Raniere most effectively and was the cause of his sex trafficking conviction

But wait, Mack is not done —Jane Doe 9

Jane Doe 9 was recruited into DOS by a DOS “slave” who was “slave” to one of other the DOS First-Line Masters.

But Mack spoke directly with Jane Doe 9 and helped recruit her.

“Later,” the lawsuit alleges, “when another DOS ‘slave’ told Jane Doe 9 that she was leaving NXIVM and showed Jane Doe 9 her brand, Jane Doe 9 quietly left DOS and NXIVM.”

This slave was saved by the Frank Report; they read about the branding and happily Jane Doe 9 was not branded. I have interviewed Jane Doe 9 in the past.

But we are not done yet. Jane Doe 10

So innocent looking, and yet so guilty of complicity in the slavery of DOS.

Jane Doe 10 was recruited into DOS.  When she wanted to leave, Jane Doe 10 requested the return of her collateral from Mack and Raniere, which she never received.

Jane Doe 11

A resident of California. “Jane Doe 11 enrolled in and paid for NXIVM curriculum based upon Defendants’ false, material representations that Rational Inquiry provided a scientific, patent-pending technology that would lead to a successful career and self-fulfillment.

“Contrary to Defendants’ representations, Rational Inquiry was neither scientific nor patentable. Defendants also failed to disclose a material fact—that Rational Inquiry was actually a pseudo-scientific hodgepodge of psychotherapeutic methods which, when practiced by
unlicensed and unqualified lay-people, subjected its participants to an unreasonable risk of serious psychological injury and emotional distress.”

Jane Doe 11 was recruited into DOS by Allison Mack and another person.

She was “required to participate in 24/7 readiness drills, send a private message to her master each morning and night, and provide services to her master.”

And we are not done yet.

Jane Doe 12

A resident of California, Jane Doe 12 enrolled in and paid for NXIVM curriculum.  Jane Doe 12 was recruited into DOS, by Mack.

Mack required Jane Doe 12 to obtain her permission to travel, meet with people and eat, and to report her whereabouts every hour. Mack put Jane Doe 12 on a restricted calorie diet which caused Jane Doe 12 to develop medical conditions including a hormonal
imbalance.

Mack gave Jane Doe 12 an assignment which required her to establish contact with Raniere and acquiesce to his demands. Mack informed her that if she failed, there would be punishment. Raniere demanded that Jane Doe 12 engage in sexual acts with himself on numerous occasions.

Mack also instructed Jane Doe 12 to recruit other women to DOS and told her that she would be punished if she did not.

After giving several rounds of collateral, Jane Doe 12 was coerced into being branded. She later discovered the brand contained Raniere’s initials.

Eventually, the shame and humiliation was more than she could bear, and Jane Doe 12 left DOS.

[I think this might be India.]

***

So Mack worked directly with Raniere to create and run DOS. Within the DOS structure, Mack was a First Line Master, where Jane Doe 2, Jane Doe 3, 4, 11, 12 and 15 were “slaves” in her line.

The Emperor Wore No Clothes, Neither Did Allison Mack

This is not a fake skin picture. But a still from a TV appearance Mack made.

A little more for Mack.

It appears DOS had a precursor, “TEN C,” which Mack, Clyne, Nancy Salzman and Raniere started.

It was aimed at procuring young women from college sororities for Raniere.  The young women were promised opportunities to build character through NXIVM curriculum and programs, and develop a sorority in their age group within NXIVM, mentored by Mack, Clyne, and Raniere.

The Defendants also offered these female students jobs working at a t-shirt company owned by Raniere and Clare Bronfman.

Privately, with sexual partners, Raniere referred to himself as “TEN C,” which stood for “The Emperor has No Clothes.”

Ultimately, this effort to procure young women for Raniere failed. Subsequently, Mack and Clyne and others created and ran DOS with Raniere.

Drawing the Curtain Between NXIVM and Reality

Another of the Companies Mack was involved in was the Knife of Aristotle (“The Knife”), founded in 2014 as a purported news outlet.

The key officers included Mack, Rosa Laura Junco and Nicki Clyne.

“Raniere’s stated purpose for creating The Knife was the scientific analysis of existing media, including fact checking, so that subscribers could cut through abundant fake news and get to the truth,” the lawsuit alleges. “The truth, of course, meant Raniere’s spin on everything, and the Knife was just one more way in which Raniere isolated his followers from outside influences. It enabled him to shield members from bad press about NXIVM because members of the NXIVM community received their news solely from The Knife. To get news from anywhere else meant that one was rebellious and jeopardizing the community.”

Loyal Allison Mack was right there supporting him in everything.

Jane Doe 3, 6, 13, 21,41, 43, 51, Mark Vicente and John Doe 16 worked for the Knife.

Sarah Edmondson’s collateral was released in retaliation

Sarah’s branding session video was release because she spoke out about Nxivm and DOS.

The video that was released was edited by Lauren Salzman and Allison Mack, at Raniere’s direction, to make it appear as if Sarah had asked to be branded.

“Indeed, Raniere directed the branding ceremony to include the recitation of a statement that Raniere told Defendant Mack would create the appearance that the brandings were consensual,” the lawsuit alleges.

They were supposed to be friends – but Allison Mack had only one friend Keith Raniere. Sarah Edmondson is on the left and defendant Daniela “Spank Me Daddy] Padilla-Bergeron is on the right.

Branding Is Battery

The lawsuit does not fail to mention the branding doctor, “Defendant Dr. Danielle Roberts engaged in: (i) bodily contact; (ii) made with
intent; (iii) that was offensive in nature by branding Sarah Edmonson and Jane Does 4, 5, 7 and 12 with Defendant Raniere’s initials as part of an outrageous DOS initiation ritual conducted as part of the Enterprise.

“Raniere, Lauren Salzman, Allison Mack, Nicky Clyne, Rosa Laura Junco, Loretta J. Garza Davila, Monica Duran, and Daniella Padilla Bergeron aided and abetted  and acted in concert with respect to the battery described above by either requesting that it be done or by participating in the outrageous ceremony with knowledge and intent that the Plaintiffs were, unbeknownst to them at the time, going to branded and were branded with Defendant Raniere’s initials.”

Yes, Allison is being sued for battery, along with the other brutal women of DOS.

One Asian has Mack’s Fingerprints

Raniere created a group just for women of East Asian heritage, called “One Asian.”

Jane Doe 28 was recruited, but unknown to her, One Asian was nothing more than an attempt to find potentially suitable sexual partners for Raniere.

“The women [of One Asia] traveled to the Albany area to meet one-on-one with Raniere, who subsequently offered to help them create a new company and be their mentor. They agreed and, ultimately, over one-hundred women of Asian heritage were recruited to this ‘women’s empowerment’ group, including Jane Doe 31 and Jane Doe 39.

“One Asian offered a special curriculum that Raniere tailored to what he characterized as women raised with more ‘masculine values’ than Western women. According to Raniere, this combination of female genetics and ‘masculine attributes,’ such as discipline and self-denial, made them virtually ‘perfect humans,’ who needed special adjustments to the ESP curriculum to maximize the benefit.

“One of the women selected by Raniere to lead One Asian was Jane Doe 28. After she agreed to lead One Asian, Jane Doe 28 was frequently summoned to Albany for meetings with Raniere.

“Often, she would have to wait until late at night for Raniere, with their meetings not starting until 1 or 2 a.m. and continuing for hours. Raniere began to require Jane Doe 28 to call him every day. When she traveled to Albany, Raniere would greet her with kisses on the
lips and would try to hold her hand during business meetings. Raniere pressured her to move to Albany so they could begin a romantic relationship.

“Members of Raniere’s inner circle also pressured Jane Doe 28 to move to Albany to be closer to Raniere. Clare Bronfman took Jane Doe 28 on walks, once telling her that Jane Doe 28’s biggest obstacle in life was that she had ‘too many options,’ and that moving to Albany and working more closely with Raniere would help her focus on her growth.

“On one visit, Defendant Loreta Garza delivered orchids to Jane Doe 28 from Raniere, a reference to a personal essay Jane Doe 28 had written in tribute to her grandmother that, Raniere said, brought him to tears.

Allison Mack: ‘Sex is just like playing tennis’

When Jane Doe 28 traveled to Albany, she would frequently stay at the home of Allison Mack, who, according to the lawsuit, “on one occasion commented to her that sex was ‘no big deal,’ and that it was ‘just like playing tennis.'”

Jane Doe 28 resigned from One Asian and left NXIVM and One Asian ceased operations.

As for Allison Mack, she is up to her eyeballs in this lawsuit, I think.

Tennis anyone?

Allison Mack will be heading off to federal prison soon and may have to be deposed from  prison.

  • The people in the cults are caught slowly through indoctrination, so it is not surprising that they end up agreeing to do things that go beyond their own interests, feelings and instincts.

    Since I started reading Frank’s report in 2015, I always was surprised when occasionally people who had been in NXIVM, either as students or coaches and some who smelled cult shit from day one and left as well as people who had their own experiences with cults, it was always interesting to see these views given by people witnessed their stories firsthand.

    But what caught my attention the most was how the experience differed according to the level of awareness of each person about what was happening around them.

    I remember several people who took a course saying that it was something positive and never saw anything weird. They wanted to spend so much money did not continue and left, others who opened their eyes after a certain time, when they began to make a balance of the pros and cons, there were some who after being faithful followers of Keith woke up suddenly when they had some experience that disturbs them. But it appears this varied from person to person or from the situation itself.

    I remember a story that Frank published about a businessman who was a follower of Keith and had a meeting at the home of one of the proctors where the great Vanguard would do and this man wanted to take his teenage daughter to meet his great teacher of ethics and compassion, but what a disturbing experience it was to see Keith appear dressed in a dressing gown showing a giant rubber penis.

    All or most took it as a joke of Keith’s unique spicy humor, but the man who was accompanied by his dreadful daughter felt indignant and left from the place and never again to take courses of human potential in NXIVM.

    Now I wonder what the reaction of the man would have been if he had gone alone or with an adult woman, would have reacted the same way or would have normalized the situation as most did by referring to Keith’s famous spicy humor, this is a very good example that people in NXIVM. and in general, any cult remains because they end up normalizing the things that in other circumstances would make them react, and you found there were stories of people who from the beginning smelled the cult shit, either because their minds are very perspicuous and already had some knowledge or experience about the cults.

    I especially remember a commentator who said “NXIVM. It is a gigantic hypnotic induction experiment. I guess I knew a lot about the subject but that made me think that everything in NXIVM. It was designed for people to create a game of focus, just like someone who uses binoculars around and sees very small things, people who stayed a long time ended up minimizing the dark side of NXIVM and Keith himself, so actually asking what they were thinking about?

    The same if we asked the wives and followers of WARREN JEFFS, the same question or the mothers of children in the camps of the church of the hundred What they thought when their children told them about physical, psychological and sexual abuse by some instructors and they decided not to believe their children and if the members of Scientology, and then years later it is surprising if the relationship with their children are depressed and some of those children ended up committing suicide, just as long as people do not wake up because they themselves would prefer fantasy to reality and sadly that happens to us in different ways to most human beings.

  • Frank & Claviger,

    RE No Justice for Dani:

    I find the fact that Sarah Edmondson, Toni Natalie and Mark Vicente all have “equal standing” in Neil Glazer’s lawsuits abhorrent.

    Dani and a few other individuals suffered so much more than any of the other plaintiffs.

    Dani does not need to be part of Neil Glazer’s lawsuit. Dani has major damages and can prove it. She suffered. I believe it is an injustice to her to be a co-plaintiff with the other 79.

    I doubt Dani understands everything because she would be nuts to have other plaintiffs “milk her suffering”; such as Toni Natalie.

    Neil Glazer is most likely going to settle this case and take his full 33% at least. If Neal gets $100,000 for each defendant that’s
    $2,640,000 in Glazer’s pocket.

    Toni gets $100k, Dani gets $100k and Neil Glazer gets $2.6 million. Does that seem fair and just?

    Frank, you have been around the block and are wiser than me. You know Glazer is more than likely to settle the case and take his cut.

    Doesn’t Dani deserve more than Toni Natalie?

    I believe it’s disgusting and Dani does not fully understand her own case or what’s at stake. Dani deserves to be rewarded for her pain and suffering.

    She spent near 2 years captive and in solitary confinement.

    She was basically in the Super Max prison you recently wrote about.

    Please help her! Get the word out!

    Doesn’t Dani deserve more than Toni Natalie?

    • My wife just informed me I am totally wrong. The plaintiff structure is different. I am not an attorney. 🙂
      ******

      Have a great week everyone!!!!

      I am going back to protesting now even though the cankle pics were “real skin”. Thanks Frank!

      The editors of the Frank Report need to be shown fake skin will not be tolerated.

      Women shall not be shamed and exploited by photoshop.

    • I think Dani definitely deserves more than Toni Natalie does. I am no certain that Toni is a victim at all. On due reflection, I think Keith should countersue Toni, and make the argument that he is a victim of her.

  • I’m curious if DOS charged their branded subjects for the cost of their electrocautery initiation ceremony. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.

    • What would you call it, then?

      Technically, the process is scarification as I’ve seen it referred to, but then to refer to the result as a scar would, in this case, also downplay what was done – there’s not really a word that is technically more accurate, that I’m aware of. So “brand” is probably the best choice of language, given the limited options available.

  • “Raniere and Clare Bronfman then instructed an attorney to send Jane Doe 2 a letter threatening legal action if she told anyone about what Defendants did to her. That letter and the charges have never been rescinded, and thus Jane Doe 2 is still subject to this
    intimidation.” I think we’re a little past that now.

  • Prison is ‘no big deal’ and it’s like a bit of a break from normal life and an exciting adventure and can only strengthen character. And you meet a lot of interesting people and enrich the experience enormously, which you can’t do otherwise.

  • The vision of Loreta Garza showing up anywhere with orchids is the stuff of nightmares. Of course, by God, you add all kinds of terrifying art and throw in that hideous, godawful photo of Crackass Raniere in bed, the sweathog potbellied guru of pizza and farts.

    That is a gem about Alejandro Betancourt being of assistance to the plaintiffs. Hopefully more about this will come soon. Is it possible that Betancourt has had a genuine change of heart? Or is it perhaps an arrangement, sotto voce? This is still better than waking up with a dead horse.

    Chocolate might not be enough for me to get through Parlato’s Fellini movie tonight. Maybe a bit of amaretto. brb

    But, gee willikers, the story is about Allison Mack. And her A cups. “Oh my God, I am heartily sorry” for mentioning anyone’s A cups. mAAck, she was righteously hung, in absentia, during a lot of testimony right out of Raniere’s trial. We saw it as it was happening. Allison Mack got hung out to dry. Nasty Mack was crack was wack. She was testified against as not being cute at all to her slaves. She came out from what was spoken in that Raniere trial sounding like a monster. She earned her stripes by her words and actions, and now more is coming.

    Does it seem as though some of the defendants being named, it is more to be able to name them, than that there’s likely to be any successful monetary comeuppance attached? Some of those defendants named can stay out of reach of being served, yes?

    One more thing. So far no Toni Natalie, except for entitlement of her name above the head of the suit, right? More pictures might not help her case. Why is she in this as a plaintiff? Toni left Raniere for a new man and took naughty $$$ with her when she stalked off to greener pastures. Was Toni screwed over badly by Raniere and his hate squads of maddening kooks, after she left? What her worry?

  • “When it became known that NXIVM was under investigation by the FBI, Keith Alan Raniere, Clare Bronfman, Lauren Salzman, Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne and several others fled the United States and went into hiding in Mexico.”
    Come on, this again? it’s false…Allison was in USA the day before the arrest and was in USA most of time before too…

    “Many think the former actress is a victim and has been punished enough already. But the civil lawsuit, much like testimony in the trial of Keith Alan Raniere, paints a different picture of Mack, other than an abused victim”
    And it’s BS…The civil lawsuit is also pointing many things that Allison was a victim of…She is a victim ,period!

    “She was a leader of DOS, which began in 2015.”
    BS disproved in federal court…

    “According to the lawsuit, it was headed by Raniere and Mack, Lauren Salzman, Rosa Laura Junco, Daniela Padilla Bergeron, Loreta J. Garza Davila, Monica Duran, and Nicki Clyne, the First Line Masters.”
    And we know it was not

    BTW Allegation made by people who knew NOTHING of the detail is hardly a proof when a trial is showing that the only one in charge is Raniere so stop with the BS, the civil lawsuit is nothing but publicity from a borderline Lawyer…

    The only fact shown in court was that Allison collected the collateral and that’s it.
    Most of the DOS women did exactly the same crime as Allison and many knew well about Raniere’s implication (india, for example)…

    The collateral were obtained the same way for Allison and some of the first line. AND IT’S STILL COERCION AGAINST THEM.
    If you accuse Allison, most of the victims are to be accused…

    “That might be a good time to stop. But it turns out that the DOS First Line Masters, including Mack, were not terribly forthcoming. No, in fact they lied”
    They were lied too…the only point they knew was Raniere implication.
    The sexual part was disputed when Nicole pointed that it’s not Allison who asked but Raniere and she talked to Allison after the “aggression” she suffered.
    At which point Allison’s reaction showed she was absolutely not aware of what Raniere was doing.
    It’s in the federal case, no discution possible on this.

    “When asked, the First Line Masters denied Raniere’s involvement and did not tell the slaves that the collateral “was intended to coerce women into a lifetime of personal servitude; and that the ultimate objective of DOS was to recruit and groom women for sexual slavery under their ‘grandmaster – Raniere.””
    And this , in federal court, was NEVER demonstrated, not a bit…on the contrary, In Allison’s case, it was disproved as she isn’t the one who asked anyone to have sex

    BTW, did you know that she was victim of this herself ? because the threesome mail show CLEARLY it was not a willing act (excuse me but “fighting my viscera” doesn’t ring as a conscious decision but more like someone forced to do it)

    “The lawsuit also paints a picture of what life was like in DOS.”
    And Allison was a victim of ALL THIS!

    Actually, the observation of most of those act were made on Allison herself…

    -The punishment were never given by Allison (or else, it would have been said in federal court) but she received them (one again, said in court)
    -Paddle was exclusive to Lauren and those who choosed it…Allison’s pod punishment was cold shower.
    -Shopped for groceries never came for Allison , only the funeral speech came and it was defused as Allison was providing Nicole services too…
    -Buy gifts only came for India…not Allison
    -False mostly, atleast for Allison
    As for the sex, it’s also inacurrate as once again, during the federal lawsuit, Only Raniere was requiring them to do this…and this included Allison who had to accept to have sex with him (under coercion, once again)

    ““’slaves’ were acutely aware of the ultimate punishment hanging over their heads: the very real threat that their collateral would be released”.”
    And what was Allison again? Oh yes! a slave…She had to obey for the same reason and more!
    But also she was mentally abused, drugged, starved and sleep deprivated…most of the victim avoided half of those and still did the collection of collateral…
    Jayes was fit so she didn’t had to go through the diet , for example…EM, how many Allison did of those?

    “Of course we get to branding”
    And it’s not a appliable crime as it’s not a crime at all…first it was accepted before the marking (see Edmondson’s interview)
    Then, it’s not Allison’s concept, it’s now a fact known!
    And finally, they had to hold each other, which would make the victim accomplice of the “crime”.

    “Allison Mack was specifically mentioned as perhaps the most ruthless of the First Line Masters who reported directly to Raniere.”
    And it’s BS…from the federal trial , we saw that it was not true…Plus why would Edmonson go against Allison after she pointed Allison was the scapegoat and It was Lauren’s work on Edmondson…

    “The lawsuit mentions that “Mack recruited her own ‘slaves,’ who were required to recruit their own, as well.”
    And it was the way DOS was working so don’t try to push this exclusively on Allison…

    Jane doe 2 is a double jeopardy most likely as she was likely in the first trial…it was ATTEMPT to and it was definately not proved and not Allison’s work

    “After Jane Doe 2 moved to Albany and gave collateral several times, Defendant Mack instructed her to have sex with Raniere, stating that this was a special assignment that would help her get over trauma from past [sexual] abuse.”
    And this is not what she said in court so what was her testimony? a lie? a perjury?
    Excuse me but this is clearly disproved, Allison didn’t asked her anything like “having sex” but seduce and it was INDIA it’s in the first indictment against Raniere!

    “she was instructed to have sex with Raniere. Jane Doe 3 acquiesced out of fear of punishment and release of her collateral”
    Then why was she not in the federal case? how is this credible?

    There is a problem with all those JD who were recruited suppostly by Allison…6 per pod and then they recruited for their own pod.

    When you see that Jaye is trying again to pin in on Allison (while at first, (first indictement during Raniere’s arrest) she pointed India)) , i suspect that to discharge some of the other master, some take Allison as the target…

    “But Mack spoke directly with Jane Doe 9 and helped recruit her.” suuure
    This is a demonstration of my previous point!

    “Jane Doe 10 was recruited into DOS. When she wanted to leave, Jane Doe 10 requested the return of her collateral from Mack and Raniere, which she never received.”
    It was RANIERE’s DECISION!!! Allison was a slave herself.

    “Jane Doe 11 was recruited into DOS by Allison Mack and another person.”
    Right…

    “A resident of California, Jane Doe 12 enrolled in and paid for NXIVM curriculum. Jane Doe 12 was recruited into DOS, by Mack.”
    who of the six could it be…maybe the one who herself did the same crime as Allison?

    “So Mack worked directly with Raniere to create and run DOS. Within the DOS structure, Mack was a First Line Master, where Jane Doe 2, Jane Doe 3, 4, 11, 12 and 15 were “slaves” in her line.”
    No she didn’t…they all did, all the victims, all the first line and it started with EDMONDSON and VICENTE!!!
    They are enabler and they allowed (atleast Vicente) Raniere to commit his crimes…

    Anyone knowing Allison after 2013 can’t talk…She was not like that and only did those things because of the coercion, starvation, drug and other manipulation she was victim of…just like some of the victim here committed the same crime as her

    I’m harsh against those victim because they use the coercion as a defense for their actions but ignore the fact that Allison was in a WAY WORSE position.

    “It appears DOS had a precursor, “TEN C,” which Mack, Clyne, Nancy Salzman and Raniere started.”
    Right…so the federal case past right through this but a little lawyer manage to gather this conspiracy story…let’s see in court what will happen.

    “Another of the Companies Mack was involved in was the Knife of Aristotle (“The Knife”), founded in 2014 as a purported news outlet.”
    Except it was clearly stated that no in the federal case…Vicente pointed the roles of each.

    “The video that was released was edited by Lauren Salzman and Allison Mack, at Raniere’s direction, to make it appear as if Sarah had asked to be branded.”
    BS…Lauren maybe but Allison had no power to do this.

    “Branding Is Battery”
    Self inflicted as they hold each other…

    “One Asian has Mack’s Fingerprints”
    Where? because i don’t see reference of her.
    “As for Allison Mack, she is up to her eyeballs in this lawsuit, I think.”
    Well the thruth is no…In reality, you have allegations, that’s it.
    Allegations that ignore fact proved in federal court (and potentially ignored by it for a good reason)…

    You have accusation that are long disproved (like the leadership Allison never had, the fact she never directly asked anyone to have sex (and if seduce is unclear for some, by a dictionnary…)
    The fact that this whole case point explaination as the why the victims committed the same crime as Allison did but all this while ignoring the FACT that she was a victim of ALL OF THOSE too.

    She did E M , She was starved, she was sleep deprivate, she was drugged and mentally abused like all the other victims but they do what?
    They target her about things she had no power to be in decision of.

    Anyway, i’m not too worried, we’ll see…

      • Allison Mack has family, friends, and fans!

        She would never post here.

        Allison is having her good name besmirched by this stalker, Shadowstate man!

        • The FBI investigation and the lawsuit filed by Neil Glazer expose Queen Allison as the sadistic ghoul that she truly is.

          “Allison Mack has family, friends, and fans!”

          As P. T. Barnum said, “There is a sucker born every minute.”

    • Your beginning contradicts your end – the fact that Mack wasn’t in Mexico until that last day is a reminder that she spent significant amounts of time on her own and away from Raniere’s direct influence, and the forced diet restriction and sleep deprivation. And yet even after breaks away, and mingling with people in the normal world who almost certainly expressed concern and offered advice, she still always chose to go back to sex slaving.

      And your claim that “she was drugged” is even more baseless, than the things you complain about others asserting. There is not the slightest hint of drugging of DOS slaves, even after everything that has come out, and not even in a lawsuit where they have interviewed nearly 100 victims including insiders; you are making things up in order to try to defend what is increasingly indefensible.

      • you don’t get tired of always coming back with the same AnonyMaker, which you think you manage to prove by noting that Allison spent time alone and away from Raenier’s influence, perhaps his influence could only be exercised next to her stuck like a slug on her head, that you don’t know that in a cult the word bald is ADOCTRINATION, also according to which of the women in DOS or in the intimate circle they were unable to travel and physically move away from Keith, stop following starvation diets and stop responding to messages Keith within 60 seconds, as far as the information Frank has published tells us, all women had these possibilities, I remind you that several of the women lived in other cities and some in other countries, (Canada and Mexico) so physically they were also far from Raenier, because then they remained faithful to him.
         

    • “the civil lawsuit is nothing but publicity from a borderline Lawyer…”

      Fact:
      Neil Glazer is a PHILADELPHIA LAWYER

      Philadelphia Lawyer is a term to describe a lawyer who knows the most detailed and minute points of law or is an exceptionally competent lawyer.
      Neil Glazer will NOT cut any deals with these defendants.

      • I think all dos slaves lived in the Albany area right?
        What is Laura Junco up to now? So she was probably who paid the villa in Vallarta?

        I really want to visit Puerto Vallarta 😎

  • I love the picture at the top of the screen, it explains everything one needs to know about Mack. But if that isn’t quite enough, the last picture of her completes the picture. However, I’m VERY disappointed there are no cankle shots.

  • Will the Apologists and Mouthpieces for Allison Pimp Mack pop up once again to proclaim her a victim?
    Well why not?
    There are still people in Russia who apologize for Stalin and people in Germany who apologize for Hitler.
    Allison Mack’s apologists have as little shame as Allison Pimp Mack herself.

    “Allison Mack: ‘Sex is just like playing tennis’”
    Scott Johnson will now have to dream of Pimp Mack’s cankles hobbling across across a tennis court chasing a fuzzy tennis ball.
    Poor, poor Scott!

    I find that Allison Mack’s involvement with The Knife Media to be quite interesting.
    The Knife Media was Keith Raniere’s Propaganda mouthpiece designed to keep the NXians as ignorant as possible.
    And Allison Pimp Mack was on the Board of Directors of The Knife Media.
    What were Pimp Mack’s qualifications for such an important post?
    Blind Loyalty to Raniere and NXIVM?
    Or “Chloe Sullivan’s ” cousin being Lois Lane?

    Moreover, Pimp Mack’s wife Nicki Clyne was a writer for the Knife Media.
    The titular head of the Knife Media was Rose Laura Junco, daughter of a Mexican newspaper tycoon.
    Did Pimp Mack know that Rose Laura tried to pimp her 15 year old daughter to Raniere?
    If Pimp Mack knew about Rose Laura’s generous offer, I doubt that it would have bothered Pimp Mack.
    Pimp Mack would have just thought that Raniere and the 15 year old girl were playing “tennis.”

    And did Pimp Mack know that Rose Laura’s large house was being used to house some of the Mexican teenagers being mentored by Raniere?
    Did Pimp Mack know that her good friend Brandon Porter, the Snuff Film Doctor, was also housing some of the teen age girls being mentored by Raniere?
    After all Pimp Mack loaned Brandon Porter the money he used to buy that house.
    Thanks to the generosity of Pimp Mack her friend Brandon Porter could also house some of the Mexican girls brought up for the Vanguard’s pleasure.

    I find it interesting that Allison Mack’s good Instagram friend Charger426hemi1 posted a Knife Media card that proclaimed:

    “Justice: Journalism can play an important role in the judicial process, but if the media distorts the facts it might interfere.”
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BjD0BynD66a/

    These NXian words of wisdom were posted on May 21, 2018 just one month after Allison Pimp Mack’s arrest and release on bail.
    Who posted these NXIAN words of wisdom since Pimp Mack is not supposed to be using the internet?

    (Not many people in the outside world knew of the Knife Media in May, 2018.)

    Interestingly here is a conversation someone had with Charger on this Instagram post:

    nemoisnobody
    @charger426hemi1 Sorry but children were involved. Mexican children. You should be saying “I don’t believe children were involved” instead of stating that as if it was a fact. It’s not worrying, it’s a simple question that you refuse. Are you a NXVIM member who has been branded and vowed undying support and loyalty?

    charger426hemi1
    @nemoisnobody yeah its a simple question but there is no simple answer, i do not look that far into the future i live for now, not what may or may not happen in the future. Whether I’m a member or not is not of any importance to anyone else.

    Who is charger426hemi1 that she knows so much about NXIVM and the Knife Media but will not state her name?
    Maybe the US DOJ or Neil Glazer might be interested.

    I also find it interesting and disturbing that Allison Pimp Mack used her bogus acting school The Source as a means of recruiting new sex slaves for Raniere.
    The Source had more to do with recruiting and grooming new sex laves than training new thespians.

    I was also intrigued by Allison Pimp Mack’s involvement in Ten C, a bogus college sorority designed to recruit and groom college coeds for sex with Raniere.
    I recall a young woman who is an infrequent commenter on the Frank Report who claimed to have attended college in the Albany area only to find Allison Mack stalking her.
    In the interest of her privacy I will not mention her pen name.
    I guess Allison Pimp Mack was too busy trying to recruit sex slaves to attend college and study.

    And let’s not forget Pimp Mack’s involvement in A Capella singing with college students.
    There was “A Capella Innovations” and “Simply Human”.
    Both involving Allison Pimp Mack and financed by Clare Bronfman.

  • “Contrary to Defendants’ representations, Rational Inquiry was neither scientific nor patentable. Defendants also failed to disclose a material fact—that Rational Inquiry was actually a pseudo-scientific hodgepodge of psychotherapeutic methods which, when practiced by unlicensed and unqualified lay-people, subjected its participants to an unreasonable risk of serious psychological injury and emotional distress.”

    But here lies a potential contradiction in discharging coaches and center-heads of culpability.

    According to a CBC News article (https://newsinteractives.cbc.ca/longform/escaping-nxivm), Sarah Edmondson, one of those suing Raniere et al., was making thousands of dollars per month as a center head for NXIVM. In that capacity, if she was not a proponent of Rational Inquiry, what alternative curriculum was she using as the head of the Vancouver Center?

      • It goes to the question of character and believability.

        As a coach and center-head, Edmondson did a great deal of legwork in promotion of something that even her own attorney is trying to call out as a scam.

        As I said in a previous post, it’s good that she finally drew a line in the sand and went to the authorities, but the fact remains she was a salesperson for Rational Inquiry, which was the grease for an MLM-engine.

        Not breaking the law and doing the right thing relate to two different questions. Personally, I think the latter consideration is of primary importance.

        But, that said, if it could be shown that NXIVM courses were used in furtherance of the racketeering venture or other illegal acts, then coaches might be seen as more than just morally culpable, assuming they knew what was going on but preferred to look the other way while taking their cut. I’m not saying this was the case. Many facts are still unknown. Coaches, for obvious reasons, have been very reticent about the discrete data points in the modules and how the modules were used to sell other “products” and services.
