Sally Brink is married to Nxivm diehard and Society of Protectors [SOP] leader, Damon Brink.
First, let’s republish what the Times wrote about Brink:
“’They get you to not trust your own decision-making process,” said one former member, Sally Brink, who said she paid $145,000 to take Nxivm classes over the years. ‘They tell you that you need them to make decisions. You start to doubt everything.’
Ms. Brink was among the 80 plaintiffs who sued Mr. Raniere and 14 other associates of Nxivm ….
“Ms. Brink, 47, said in an interview that she was introduced to the group in her late 20s. She was struggling as the new co-owner of a restaurant in a Vermont college town, weighed down by 18-hour days.
“Her college roommate recommended turning her life around through Nxivm, pitching it as a class that helped entrepreneurs reach their goals. The roommate told her the program had been developed by a brilliant thinker named Keith Raniere.
“Ms. Brink flew to Los Angeles in 2004 for a five-day course, hosted at a home in the Hollywood Hills. At first, she found the teachings to be profound. Her relationships with her employees and her family improved.
Still, he was a damn good liar.
Damon once said: “For those of you that don’t know, our founder, Keith Raniere, has built more than 1,000 millionaires in his life. He has built multi-million dollar businesses in a short amount of time and at one point was making more than $100,000 per hour coaching the highest level business executives in the world.”
These are very wicked people in Nxivm. One of the wickedest, Nancy ‘Prefect’ Salzman, was quickest to hop on the plea deal bus, jumping ahead of her own daughter, getting only one racketeering felony, instead of two, like her daughter.
Nancy has told others in Nxivm that she now realizes Keith tricked her; she had no idea for 20 years he was rotten to the core.
Nancy is, overall, an astounding deceiver, a liar of immense proportions. Next to Clare and, of course, the Creature himself, she deserves a monstrous-long prison sentence. Chances are she will get off lightly.
Generous Nxivm Followers
I did find it curious, when reviewing Sally Brink’s GoFundMe page, that a few Nxivm members made contributions.
After she raised some $42,000, I am pretty certain Nancy was pushing her not to spend the money on herself, but to get it to Keith. Not so much because he needed it – he had Bronfman millions and other sources of income – but because these two, Keith and Nancy, hated the idea that anyone would have any money to spend on themselves.
And because I believe Keith wanted her to die.
Maybe Nancy and Keith influenced followers to be parsimonious with Sally. After all, ‘What does it mean when you have extra money on hand and you don’t spend it to make the world and yourself a better person?”
Of the millionaires who donated to the cause of possibly saving the life of their friend:
[redacted] – $1000
Vany Huber -$500
Alex Betancourt gave $270.
Ceci Salinas – $200.
Omar Boone gave $80
Angelica Hinojos, who is a poor Rainbow nanny, working for $15 per hour, donated more than the millionaire Betancourt, donating $300.
Other Nxivm members who contributed:
Wayne LeBaron – $200
Christina Starr – $200.
Siobahn Hotaling $150
Linda Chung – $100
Ginger Macintosh – $50.
Kim Constable – $108.
Lyvia Cohen – $54
Wendy Rosen-Brooks – $200
Amanda Canning – $108
It is curious, Keith Raniere, Nancy Salzman, Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne, Emiliano Salinas, Edgar Boone, and of course, the two heiresses, Clare and Sara Bronfman, did not appear to donate anything.
His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.
His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg; “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson; “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.
Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries, 'Seduced,' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Parlato has 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, which was ironic since many credit Parlato as being one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
