List of Nazis Who Were Reincarnated as Nxivm Members, According to Leader Keith Raniere

According to Keith Raniere, Adolf Hitler is Mr. Raniere's disciple and partner. Hitler died but Mr. Raniere informed his student and business partner Nancy Salzman that she was Hitler in her past life. Mr. Raniere gave Ms, Salzman the title of Prefect, which is much lower than her previous title Fuhrer.

Comparing Keith Alan Raniere to Adolf Schicklgruber Hitler is not fair, some people say.  However, Raniere himself often compared his disciples to Hitler and members of his inner circle.

Former Nxivm members have told Frank Report that they were told they were Nazis in their past lives.

Raniere, who was known by the self-given title of Vanguard, explained to followers that his need to purify the world made it necessary for him to undertake the bad karma [disintegrations] of some of the worst people who ever lived and make them noble, ethical human beings.

And who was worse, Vanguard noted, than the Nazis and their Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler?

Raniere told disciples that he not only knew everything about their present life, he knows all their past lives and all their future lives.

Especially what will happen to them if they did not obey him.

What will happen he said is they will return to the kind of behavior they exhibited during their Nazi past and pay dearly for it.

In this way, Raniere made the claim that all self-professed saviors make: that he was unique in that he took on disciples who were truly fallen angels and saved them.

Here are some of Raniere’s past and present students – and who he identified them as being in their past life:

Toni Natalie: His former girlfriend and the woman he designated to have his avatar child. He identified her as being Hermann Goering.

A young and ardent Keith Raniere with Toni Natalie. When she spoke of leaving, he revealed that she was Herman Goering – and told her that if she left, she would have to endure the bad karma Goering earned from his previous life. She left anyway, running off with the money and the chef of the restaurant she and Raniere partnered in.


Hermann Wilhelm Göring was a German political and military leader, as well as one of the most powerful figures in the Nazi Party. He was commander of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and, as Keith Raniere said, reincarnated as his lover, Toni Natalie.


Barbara Bouchey: Another former girlfriend, Keith identified her as Reinhard Heydrich.

Barb was trained to march like a German and given the German nickname “Ya.”

This teaching was interspersed with Raniere’s claim that he was going to sire for her a child who would be an avatar and help create a more noble civilization.

Unlike Toni, who he told about her Nazi past only when she was about to leave, Keith told Barb about her Nazi past while she was deep in the relationship with him.

Keith Raniere told Barbara Bouchey she was his great love, she said. He also said she was Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi with an iron heart.


Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the Nazi’s plans to exterminate the Jews.

Barbara Bouchey left Nxivm and semi-repudiated Raniere, claiming he was a wonderful boyfriend but mentally ill – but also claiming that Nxivm had a lot of good in it and should possibly be revived.


Ivy Nevares: She was identified as a lower-level Nazi working under Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda.

Ivy co-authored two books and numerous articles with Raniere.

Like Toni and Barbara, Keith told Ivy that he would sire for her an avatar baby.

Ivy Nevares was a low-level Nazi, according to her leader Keith Raniere.


Nazi, Joseph Goebbels. Keith Raniere claimed Ivy Navares was an assistant to Goebbels in her past life.

One insider cult source told about Ivy :

“One example of Keith’s malevolent, merciless nature is harem member Ivy Nevares. In recent years, I took a training with Ivy Nevares. She had let her hair grow so long it was below her feet. It was very nutty. She told me that she couldn’t cut her hair until Keith determined that she had healed her ethical breach and gave her permission to cut her hair. She said that she had to demonstrate to Keith that “she really cared’

“Apparently they [cult members] led Ivy to believe that she would someday marry Keith and have his firstborn child once she ‘healed her ethical breach’. Yet all of Keith’s women knew this was a complete and total fallacy. My friend said Ivy was despised by Keith’s harem as she had been his #1 wife in the mid- 2000’s and hated the idea of the harem and they were all insanely jealous of her. They were happy to participate or perhaps better put, rationalize, Ivy being iced out. Yet these women all knowingly participated in defrauding Ivy and using mal-intended unlicensed weekly therapy sessions to convince her that her fantasy was real when they all knew it was all a lie.”

Ivy Nevares has repudiated Keith Raniere and left Nxivm.


Pam Cafritz: She was one of Raniere’s most loyal followers.

Keith with Pam Cafritz, who was also just an obscure Nazi in her past life according to Raniere.

The late Pamela Cafritz was identified as an obscure, low-level Nazi, whose name has not been passed down to history. Her low status did not exculpate her from her Nazi treachery, but it was to be perfectly clear that she was a much lower-level figure in Nazism and in order for her atone her crimes, she needed to be very subservient to other, higher-ranking former Nazis.


Alejandro Betancourt:

Mexico City Nxivm leader, and trust fund baby, Alex Betancourt was identified not as a Nazi, but as a Fascist. Raniere told Betancourt that he was Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator, in his past life. Raniere reportedly told Betancourt that he had a lot to make up after having killed so many people during World War 2.


Alejandro “Alex” Betancourt was identified as Benito Mussolini. The lesson to be learned from this, according to Keith Raniere, was that Betancourt was a world leader in his past life but went wrong. So, in this life, with Raniere’s help, he could be a world leader again but this time he would do right. But only if he did exactly what Raniere told him to do.

Alejandro Betancourt – in his last life – as Benito Mussolini.

Both Salinas and Betancourt have repudiated Raniere.



Brandon Porter:


The FORMER DOCTOR, Brandon Porter

There is at least one source who says that Raniere told Dr. Brandon Porter, now notorious for his Nxivm human fright experiments, that he was Josef Mengele, the Angel of Death, in his past life.

Raniere’s view [said to be Porter’s as well] was that Mengele was misunderstood and was actually a good man who tried to save as many concentration camp prisoners as he could. Unlike the others, who Raniere “guilted” because of their Nazi past, Raniere used an opposite tact with Porter.

He let him know that Mengele had an unfair reputation when he was a humanitarian.

In this way, Raniere taught Porter not to care what the world thought about him as long as he did Keith’s noble work.

Porter is said to be loyal to Raniere to this day, despite being universally known as a human monster

It is not known if he presently believes he is Dr. Mengele.  Dr. Porter lost his medical license in 2019.

Nancy Salzman:

While many people assumed that if so many of Hitler’s former inner circle were now part of Raniere’s inner circle that perhaps the Vanguard was the Fuhrer himself.

Raniere repeatedly denied he was Hitler.

For some time, Raniere informed his followers that, in addition to having Nazis [in their past lives] as his disciples, he also had a number of people who were Nazi victims – mainly Jews who were exterminated in concentration camps.

He identified Nancy Salzman as one such Jewish victim who died in a concentration camp.

One day, Raniere made a reversal.

Barbara Jeske, who was believed to be Henrich Muller, head of the Gestapo, asked Raniere directly “who among us is Adolf Hitler?”

Barbara Jeske with Pam Cafritz


Was Barbara Jeske formerly Henrich Muller, head of the Gestapo?

In answer to Jeske’s question, Raniere said Nancy Salzman was Adolf Hitler.

Salzman, who had been previously told she was a Jewish concentration victim, realized that Keith had gradually given her light so as not to shock her. She was not ready to be told she was Hitler before.

According to sources, Nancy resolved to be forever in his debt out of gratitude for him saving her and absolve her of the tremendous crimes she, as Hitler, committed.

She was also proud that she was once a world leader who had charisma and the ability to move the world. She just needed Keith to make sure she did it in a positive way this time.


Was Adolf Hitler reborn as Nancy Salzman?

3 nancy-1-300x300-copy
Nancy Salzman was informed by her Master, Keith Raniere, that she was Adolf Hitler in her past life. It made her feel indebted to Raniere for he was willing to redeem her sins.

After being arrested, Nancy Salzman repudiated Raniere and told others that Raniere misled her and her daughters.

She and her daughter, Lauren, have been convicted on racketeering charges.

K Raniere 4 brighterr
Keith Raniere claimed he was a great guru who knew the past lives of his students, numerous sources said.


Keith Alan Raniere told numerous followers that they were Nazis in their past lives.

It is hard to say whether all the women who were told they were Nazis believed it, or if any still do.  I doubt Barbara Bouchey or Nancy Salzman still believe they were Nazis, Reinhard Heydrich or Adolf Hitler.

Maybe they never believed it and merely went along for whatever gain they thought was available to them by agreeing with their Vanguard.

It is interesting to note that Raniere used this Nazi past life technique in the beginning with his Nxivm followers. Later, he seems to have dropped the Nazi technique.  There are no reports that Raniere ever told Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne  etc. that they were Nazis.

Instead, he branded them and made them sex slaves.

  • It is the Nazis who were INSPIRED by the Gita – and Rommel,Goebbel,Himmler (The Posener Speech) and other Nuremberg convicts, claimed that they were akin to Arjuna,following THEIR DUTY to the Fuhrer. Hence,they killed,W/O discrimination as it was their divine duty to their NATION and the FUHRER (as stated in the Gita) !

    These are the verses in the diaries of the Nazis,and these verses were ALSO QUOTED in the Nuremberg Trials by the Nazis ! THE THEOLOGICAL JUSTIFICATION OF GENOCIDE AND POGROMS !

    I present Chapter 18 of the Bhagwad Gita !

    When Krishna the Bhagvat was fed up trying to explain to “Arjuna the – why he “needed to exterminate his foes” – this was the “last attempt” in the 18th Chapter of the Gita – the logic is as under :

    Lumen Naturale 1 – There are “5 precedents to sense-perception and action”

    अधिष्ठानं तथा कर्ता करणं च पृथग्विधम्।

    विविधाश्च पृथक्चेष्टा दैवं चैवात्र पञ्चमम्।।18.14।।

    18.14 The locus as also the agent, the different kinds of organs, the many and distinct activities, and, the “divine is here the fifth”.


    Lumen Naturale 2 – There “5 are causes of all action” and are “independent of the mind and body dualism” of Descartes and “also the Soul “!

    मूल श्लोकः
    शरीरवाङ्मनोभिर्यत्कर्म प्रारभते नरः।
    न्याय्यं वा विपरीतं वा पञ्चैते तस्य हेतवः।।18.15।।

    18.15 For whatever action a man undertakes by his body, speech and mind, whether right or wrong,i.e., enjoined or forbidden by the Sastras, “the following five”, are its causes:


    Lumen Naturale 3 – 18.16 But the fool who supposes, because of his immature judgment, that it is his own Self alone that acts, he perverts the truth and does not see rightly.

    तत्रैवं सति कर्तारमात्मानं केवलं तु यः।

    पश्यत्यकृतबुद्धित्वान्न स पश्यति दुर्मतिः।।18.16।।

    EXPLANATION – TO EVEN THINK (LET ALONE REPENT) THAT A MAN IS THE “CAUSE” OF HIS ACTIONS OR IS “RESPONSIBLE” FOR THE SAME – IS FOOLISH.This RHYMES with the Jesus Complex – that Jesus died for the SINS OF HUMANITY – as the SINS of HUMANITY were the actions of GOD,and so,GOD SACRIFICED HIS SON,for the SINS OF HUMANIY (and the suffering of HUMANITY).BUT THE SINS AND SUFFERINGS CONTINUE ! It is a fact that EITHER Jesus came to India or Hindoo Godmen were in Babylon and Jerusalem – at the time of Jesus !

    In essence,the Nazi theory is that the Jew Genocide was ordained,and is reposited in the Book of Isaiah,and the Curse on the lineage of Solomon.So Himmler posited that HIS ACTIONS were the actions of the 5TH ELEMENT – WHICH IS THE DIVINE.

    Lumen Naturale 4– Hence,you can “kill,murder and rape” – provided it is done with “no ego and no feelings “- for it is the “Act of the Divine” ! Just like the Nazis ! “Heil Krishna,the Bhagwat “!

    यस्य नाहंकृतो भावो बुद्धिर्यस्य न लिप्यते।

    हत्वापि स इमाँल्लोकान्न हन्ति न निबध्यते।।18.17।।

    18.17 He who has not the “feeling of egoism”, whose intellect is not tainted, he does not kill, nor does he become bound-“even by killing these creatures” !






    And is that why the Islamic Prophecies,forecast the destruction of Hindoosthan by Pakistan, PRC and the Turks – and that time has come – Inshallah !

  • Where are the Bronfmans as born-again Nazis, why are they missing, despite their Jewish family background?

    It would be more interesting to know what the Bronfmans should have been. But I don’t suppose Frank has any sources on that, or is he saving it for later?

  • I’d like to know who Karen Unterreiner was – Eva Braun?

    How about Kristen Keeffe – Albert Speer?

    Or Lauren Salzman – Hermann Goring?

  • Keith Raniere’s showmanship, designed to further inculcate his gullible sheeple, tore ass through the hallmarks of his own delusions. Hitler, Shitler. Funhouse games. “I will gladly give you a personal lesson in loving my fascism on Tuesday, for a blowjob today.”

    Flopeye the Hottub Man, strong to the finish on frozen pizza. Even Tom Cruise would call Raniere’s godship too glib.

    Now Keith Raniere is an old guy behind bars. For where he is, he’s a senior noncitizen who has been there too long already, hanging around like a horsefly awaiting sentencing.

    Months ago, Raniere claimed that he was running out of funds to pay counsel, etc. Who has been paying his attorneys for their work these days, while Raniere keeps pissing into the wind? Is it still Clare Bronfman?

    Raniere was so hungry to be an idolized false prophet, but he never even had the good taste or the self-discipline to learn how to wash his own anus. Now we know where he got all of the dingleberries for his poop capsule medications. His collection plate? A thriving bush. Have some rum raisin ice cream.

  • “After being arrested, Nancy Salzman repudiated Raniere and told others that Raniere misled her and her daughters.” Frank Parlato

    Had Nancy Salzman been living with a bucket over her head for twenty years????

    I am never particularly impressed when Gangsters and Racketeers start repudiating each other.
    Joseph Stalin, the Gangster who ruled Russia for almost 30 years and had murdered about as many people as Hitler, died of a stroke in 1953.
    Within three years Nikita Khruschev got up and gave a speech denouncing and repudiating Stalin’s many crimes.
    And all the Communists who applauded had as much blood on their hands as Stalin.

    On the Cult of Personality and Its Consequences
    also popularly known as the “Secret Speech”

  • I share “L’s” sentiments over how Raniere’s game got freakier and freakier over the years.

    This reincarnation thing was all part of the Buddhist/Hindu God phase when Raniere acquired the powers akin to the Dalai Lama to “recognize” everyone’s past lives— Raniere used as a blackmail and guilt weapon to manipulate and control. He’d threaten that if he were disobeyed or displeased the offender would ‘disintegrate’ into a Luciferian state — it’s complicated. L got a taste of that fallen angel outer darkness perversion of Milton and Mormon doctrine.

    Early on, anyway, their were also complimentary past lives bequeathed. Gina was Samayatara, Kristin Keeffe was Juno, etc. and I understand Frank was deemed a Cambodian King, though about 5 years after Gina passed on to Nirvana. Raniere’s designated me as Attila the Hun, HUH?, according to Gina’s notes. Beyond bizarre.

  • True story. I heard this talk of reincarnated Nazis on several occasions. I specifically remember being a part of a conversation with Nancy and a few of them talking (minus Keith) about who he’d told them they were in their past life. They bought it hook line and sinker. As the conversation was going on, I remember thinking how utterly ridiculous it was, and simultaneously feeling left out because I hadn’t been told by Keith who I was in my past life.

  • Some notes on the family of Adolf Schicklgruber Hitler

    Hitler’s father named Alois Hitler was born out of wedlock.
    Until a man named Hitler admitted to paternity Alois was know as Schickelgruber.
    Because Hitler’s paternal grandmother had worked as a maid in the house of a Jewish businessman, some people believe that Herr Hitler was one quarter Jewish.
    Hitler’s head of the Sicherheits Dienst (Security Service) Reinhard Heydrich was a quarter Jewish.

    Some theorize Hitler’s anti-Semitism might stem from his questionable background.

    Another point is that Hitler’s father and mother were also Uncle and niece.
    A bribe had to be paid to the Catholic Church for a Papal dispensation.
    Hitler himself had a relationship with his own niece Geli Raubal.
    Fraulein Raubal committed suicide after which Hitler became a vegetarian .

    Hitler also had a half brother named Alois Hitler .
    The half brother moved to England and married an Irish girl.Their child was William Patrick Hitler , Hitler’s nephew.
    William Patrick Hitler moved to the US and served in the Merchant Marine.
    After the war he changed his name and lived with his family on Long Island.
    One of William Patrick Hitler’s sons became an employee of the IRS.

  • Frank,

    Show me the statement where Betancourt and Salinas REPUDIATED Keith Raniere specifically.

    You fucken LIAR.

    You lying sack o’ shit.

    Nobody has repudiated Keith.

    They have merely distanced themselves from NXIVM and went silent.

    Even Kristin Kreuk never repudiated Keith directly. She gave a ‘vague’ statement saying she sympathized with the women victims of NXIVM —– but she never repudiated Keith specifically.

    She never said he was evil. She never said Keith belongs in jail.

    I challenge you to respond and refute these allegations.

    Have a nice day. 🙂

    • Yeah, Frank, you bugger. And how ‘bout this fake news bit where you claim:

      “After being arrested, Nancy Salzman repudiated Raniere and told others that Raniere misled her and her daughters.”

      Nancy Salzman didn’t fucken repudiate Raniere — when?!

      She NEVER agreed to cooperate with investigators or testify against Raniere — she didn’t have to — she got the ‘no strings attached’ plea deal of the century starting with only a single charge of racketeering — with no repudiation or admission of anything required.

      Nancy Salzman puts Ghislaine Maxwell to shame.

      And Frank is a sensational, propoganist male chauvinist.

      Sometimes Bangcuck does get it!

      • I’m sorry, Heidi, wrong for once. Nancy told several of my sources that Keith did mislead her. And not only that, she and her daughter did cooperate with the feds. They decided not to call Nancy for all her baggage and settled on Lauren.

        • I’m sorry, Frank, but Heidi is RIGHT and you are being ‘played’ by your sources cuz Nancy never said any such thing (neither before, nor after she was arrested).

          1) There’s NO WAY Nancy Salzman would have told ANYBODY that Keith misled her BEFORE being arrested. She was STILL ‘Prefect’ at that time.

          2) There’s NO WAY Nancy Salzman would have talked about Keith AFTER being arrested either ——- because her attorneys would have told her to keep silent (and because she was still loyal to Keith’s legal team up until a few months before trial).

          3) Therefore, that leaves NO TIME PERIOD when Nancy could have said these things to your sources.

          4) Your sources are likely Keeffe and Karen U. —– who aren’t the type of people that Nancy would confide in, especially about her Vanguard.

          You’re lying to us to cover your ass.

          It’s interesting that your sources are ‘confidential’ here (you won’t name them) —- when you gladly cited Keeffe as your source in other articles when dishing dirt on Toni Natalie.

          I’d say that your sources don’t exist here.

          Heidi just owned your butt, Frank.

          She caught you with your journalistic pants down.

          Have a nice day.

          • What’s wrong with this post, Frank?

            Other than it makes you look bad?

            Is that why you refuse to approve it after 24 hours?

            And you’re a believer in free speech? Yeah sure.

            Just delete my post if ‘truth’ offends you that much.

            Hit hit the ‘delete’ button, little Frankie. Not that difficult.

          • To bancock’s four glorious dart-throwing points:

            1. So what if she was still Prefect? This is a non-sequitur stretch – that sounds nice but happens to be incorrect.

            2. Sounds nice, but wrong again. Nancy can never keep her mouth shut. She talks to everyone about everything.

            3. Therefore, that leaves every second of every day that Nancy could have said whatever the flying fuck she wanted to anyone she wanted to.

            4. Why wouldn’t she confide to Keefe and KU? They are exactly the types of people she would confide in. Who do you think she would confide to? Her Mommy?

            Stick to your schtick that doesn’t involve the psychology of people you don’t know. Or if you must play shrink – 1. Maybe analyze YOUR mommy and why she ran off daddy. 2. Or analyze the hot chick down the block that once finally acknowledged your existence by “accidentally” dumping her dad’s dip on the seat of your Huffy. 3. Or analyze why you think it’s ok to go online and act this way? 4. Or try to figure out what emptiness inside you this online behavior is fulfilling? (hint – see 1 & 2)

        • I’m sure she did and it’s not about being right or wrong. It’s about fact vs. bullshit.

          Actions speak louder than words and Nancy’s actions include the fact that she did not consider any plea agreement for over a year after the arrests, nor had she cooperated with the DOJ investigators to this day. That’s hardly repudiation or redemption.

          So maybe she gave up Lauren in her stead — what else is new? Admirable, is it, when a parent throws her own child to the wolves?

          Besides, doesn’t Bangcuck deserve a little love for all the frantic banging he’s been doing on here lately?

          Mind if I agree with him once and a while when HE’s right and Frank’s wrong?

          • You were right on this issue. Nancy never repudiated Keith.

            You should continue to press Frank on WHEN his sources supposedly heard Nancy repudiate Keith.


            1) Cuz she would never have done that as ‘Prefect’ (prior to arrest). Criticizing/repudiating Keith to other NXIVM members, while she was Prefect, was a guaranteed way to lose her status if somebody blabbed. There’s no secrecy in NXIVM.

            2) Nor would she have criticized/repudiated Keith after being arrested either, since she didn’t cut a plea deal and ‘turn against’ Keith until just before the trial (very late in the process). She and her attorneys were still cooperating with Keith’s legal team up until that point.

            3) Nor would she have criticized/repudiated Keith after cutting a plea deal, since her attorneys would have advised her to remain silent.

            Frank is lying to us and you shouldn’t let him off the hook.

            Nancy was a witch and never repudiated Keith.

            She also never agreed to help the government convict Keith — other than to be truthful in anything she was asked, which is NOT the same thing as the plea deal that Lauren cut, which required her to be a major witness against Keith.

            Nancy wasn’t called to testify because the government didn’t know about her true loyalties —- because she was NOT required (by her plea deal) to provide evidence against Keith and to “perform” at trial, like Lauren was. She had no “performance” clause in her plea deal.

            Frank has no idea what he’s talking about.

          • How do YOU know these things, bangcock? Where does YOUR knowledge come from?

            You know how to make nice sounding points. Problem is your points are factually incorrect.

            What’s your background ? Maybe your spewings would hold more weight if we didn’t think you were a CA troll who lived in mama’s basement. Anything to say, brah?

  • I find this really bizarre along with things like claiming people caused the shuttle Challenger explosion or the 9/11 terrorist attack because they didn’t do what Raniere wanted. I can wrap my head around some of his other manipulative scripts’ effects on people (my past young, naive self knows that all too well), but this one is hard to fathom. I would have laughed if he tried this on me.

    He once tried to impress me with a multimeter that showed activity when he went near it and none when I did. I figured he probably had a heavy duty magnet concealed some way to fool me. Or that there was some other reasonable explanation that just didn’t warrant my time and energy to figure out. The idea that it somehow reveals his spiritual superiority is ridiculous, but I’d bet he used the same sort of trick to fool his followers into believing he didn’t drive because he set off police radar detectors. In fact, he lost his license because he collected numerous traffic violations for which he never paid up. At least not while I was with him.

    So let’s guess – who was Raniere in his past life? I’ll throw out Rasputin as a candidate. Anyone else wanna play? And me, I was probably some low-level grunt conscripted into the front lines of the German army. Hopefully I went AWOL and joined the French resistance.

    • Funny. I remember watching a late night healer on an infomercial laying his hands on people and seeing their eyes roll up in shock.

      I figured he had a mild battery attached to his right arm and touching peoples sweaty skin completed the connection and created a mild shock.

      Later it was revealed that he used miniature microphones in his ear and an accomplice off stage reading from cards the attendees filled out at the start of the service.

      • Good one. Was Sweeney Todd a real person? The Barber of Seville? I’d nominate that brute.

        And my third nominee for past life possessors of Raniere’s evil soul — would be the bloodthirsty 3rd Emporer of Rome they called Caligula — free movie alert link below, Bon Apetite!

        • Hah! Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street… I think he is more folk legend than reality. Raniere would appreciate that suggestion – he wanted to play that role, but ended up cast as Pirelli, the sham street barber. Ironically, that was related to another “don’t say no to Keith’s ego” incident. The last summer I was with him, he asked my opinion if he could be cast as the lead role in next year’s production of Sweeney. I said I didn’t think so – that they would probably go for a more physically imposing actor with a more baritone voice. He was furious at me and made sure I knew it. It was just another nail in the coffin of our relationship – I was done being treated like that. Don’t want my honest opinion, then don’t ask.

          Incidentally, they did cast exactly the kind of actor I proposed, and additionally, one far more capable of portraying the tragic emotional creature that the role requires. Can’t portray those emotions well if you don’t even understand them.

          During the run of the show, he made sure to inform me that a Hollywood talent scout was attending to see his work. At that point I had been out of the relationship for many months; I don’t think I even bothered to respond. Pretty much avoided any interaction with him at all which wasn’t too hard since our roles didn’t intersect at all.

      • Yeah Crowley really was clever. And an agent for MI5 or 6. Do fill us in on diarrhaniere’s service for America’s intelligence service. Seems highly likely at this point.

        • Crowley was a horn dog and active experimental exponent of sex magic. Raniere, based on reports also practiced sex magic, but to a much larger degree than Crowley. Issues that arise but are not mastered in one life, frequently transfer to succeeding lives to be resolved.

          Raniere, like Crowley had access to extraordinary wealth, and could have had a wonderful life, if he’d just restrained his lower nature and been satisfied with one or two women, and not persecuted his detractors.

          I know nothing about Crowleys alleged desire to serve in intelligence.

          But if you’re interested in that sort of thing you should deep dive William Butler Yates.

    • Lol. …I’ll play, “L.” My vote is Raniere’s past lives included:

      Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia or — as he is better known — Vlad the Impaler. AKA, DRACULA.

  • It is unfair to compare Keith Raniere to Adolf Hitler. Unfair to Hitler!
    As evil as Hitler was, he was industrious and could organize a movement that could take over a great nation and almost conquer Europe.
    Only the bravery of the British, the Industrial might of America and the incredible sacrifices of Russia stopped Hitler.
    We should be thankful that Raniere was too lazy, stupid and undisciplined to do any more than conquer Albany and Saratoga counties.
    And all of Raniere’s conquests were done using Bronfman money to bribe corrupt local politicians.

    Had Raniere been more industrious and intelligent, he would have conquered Canada and Mexico and established a Protectorate over Latin America.
    Raniere appears to have a thing for underage Latinas.

    And as an additional note, Hitler was a soldier in World War I and was brave earning two Iron Crosses.

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.” He also appeared in "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM, and was credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
