Raniere and Clyne Using Morse Code to Communicate at Prison –as Nxivm-Connected Dancers Warn Media Not to Use Their Images Without Permission

Nicki Clyne outside of MDC. Is she communicating with her master, Keith Alan Raniere?

In what might be an important discovery, my friend and distinguished writer, Juan Alberto Vazquez, reporting for Milenio, stopped by the dance protest at the Metropolitan Detention Center recently and made a remarkable discovery.

Prisoner Keith Alan Raniere and Nicki Clyne seem to be communicating by Morse code.

He named Clyne, Dr. Danielle Roberts, Michele Hatchette, and the Mexican Eduardo Asunsolo Ramírez as being present.

Vazquez wrote that Asunsolo “was uncomfortable when MILENIO’s envoy approached to look at his ‘protest.’ He accused this reporter ‘of allying with the government to lock up Raniere’ who, from his perception, ‘is innocent.’ He promised that later the truth will come to light and said that they have the evidence ‘to unmask the lie.’

“To alert his followers that he is already watching them from his window, Raniere hits a railing in his cell, at which point Clyne activates her lamp. She turned it on and off indiscriminately in the presence of this reporter, sending messages in Morse code…

“The movement We Are As You has wanted to involve, without success, relatives of other inmates, but in both the videos they have shared and on the night that MILENIO’s envoy was present, only Nicki Clyne, the Mexican Asunsolo, and Doctor Roberts appeared.”

Morse code is a method used in telecommunication to encode text characters as standardized sequences of two different signal durations, called dots and dashes or dits and dahs. Morse code is named after Samuel Morse, an inventor of the telegraph.

I have been posting their photos on Frank Report as part of an ongoing effort to bring attention to the organizers of the group — Nxivm members.  While I support the ostensible purpose of the protest, to bring attention to horrific condition at the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center, I do think their lack of transparency about their ties to one of the detainees at MDC, Keith Alan Raniere, will ultimately hurt their cause and should be reported in the media.

This seems to suggest that, based on this international license, that everyone is free to share the work provided weareasyou is given credit,  which is something I have done.

Nevertheless, I suppose the weareasyou group could sue me, if they chose, for copyright infringement. This might lead to greater exposure of the group, its organizers, and its true goals. This might be a good thing since people who join the protest at MDC should be made aware of who is behind the group and the fact that one Canadian woman, Nicki Clyne, is communicating with Raniere via Morse code, a possible violation on Raniere’s part of prison rules.

Apropos of the lack of disclosure of the Nxivm-connection, a woman contacted me today, very upset, asking me to take down her picture with Nicki Clyne taken at the dance protest.  I removed her picture.

She was upset, she told me, because she had no idea what the group was about until she read about it and saw her picture on Frank Report. Shocked, she contacted me, and also contacted the weareasyou Instagram account – asking them to take her picture down also.

To their credit, weareasyou took down her picture also.

She said, “I am disgusted and angered that I am now forever in a picture with Nicki Clyne, but there’s nothing I can do about it now.”

She also expressed concern that this Nxivm-related dance protest might undermine legitimate protests outside MDC which have been ongoing for some time.

Asked whether anyone at the dance told her about their ties to Nxivm, she said no.  Asked whether anyone tried to recruit her or ask for her phone number, she again answered no.  She said she did not go to the protest deliberately, but happened to pass by and stopped to join them for a few minutes because she sympathized with the cause.

Someone in the group asked if they could take a picture and she obliged, posing with Clyne.

  • Looks like the infallible Nice Guy, correctly deduced the Morse Code communication between Vanguard and Nicki.

    Now, if only I could find a way to get Scott Johnson from posting on the Frank Report.

    It will be a Herculean task, but I believe I am up to the challenge at hand.

    • Scott believes that the only chance you have of doing that is to come on his show, but [redacted]. LOL

  • This is unpardonable and egregious. Stop this mad reporting. What right do you have to report this? How dare you. It may be illegal what you have done. Haven’t we suffered enough?

  • So are either you or Mr. Vazquez going to tell us what the purported morse code messages say, or are we going to have to decipher this ourselves?

    • Shadowstate,

      Do you believe someone should alert the prison that Vanguard is communicating illegally with the outside? And the prison should block his window or make it opaque in some way?


      The other day, the alias DirtyRatBastard said, “Anyone know who the fine piece of ass in the Daisy Dukes?”

      Then Scott Johnson replied, to the comment fine piece of ass, with “That’s either Mr. Shadow or NiceGuy 666. LOL”

      Shadowstate, do you feel violated or objectified by Mr.Johnson?

      • Nice Guy
        I’ve sent an email to Frank about what I believe is going on.
        I believe the Feds have matters well in hand.
        As for Scott Johnson, everyone knows his love interest is [redacted]

      • It’s already been stated the prisoners have been moved around, so we don’t even know whether Raniere can see the flashlights. LOL

        Alternatively, perhaps the authorities are gathering intel by allowing the Morse Code communications to continue. LOL

  • The stupidity of these DOS Idiots is in full display. For one, Nicki Clyne thought no one would recognize her. Duh.

    You’re WORLD FAMOUS now, babe. Keep dancing for your MASTER.

    Then, they claim the completely wrong licensing and copyright of their images. The one license that gives everyone free permission to distribute the images. Hahaha

    Then, Nicki communicates with Queef via Morse Code. Dang. You would have made such a great spy, Nicki… In a Mickey Mouse cartoon or Pink Panther Movie.

    Mr. Bean perhaps?

    And sorry, but not sorry. Eduardo Ramirez doesn’t look Latino. He looks Libyan. In any event, if he is from Mexico and the borders have been closed for two months – HOW DID HE GET A VISA TO COME TO THE USA??? For what? Being a film director for NXIVM?

  • A clear example of the condition known as St. Vanguard’s Dance, whereupon those infected produce a series of sporadic jerky movements of the limbs daily at 8 pm New York time outside a correctional facility. There is apparently no cure for this syndrome, patients have been known to dance themselves quite literally to exhaustion if not death. A rare comorbidity involves the manifestation of further symptoms of ‘Morse Code’.

    Not to be confused with Street, Classical, Jazz, Disco, Hip-hop, Kathkali, or indeed any other form of dance performed in moments of spontaneous or well-choreographed joy for the purposes of celebration and entertainment. [see Roger Stone]

  • That is great Milenio is also reporting this. I hope this makes people in Mexico aware that they are still recruiting. It is scary. I did not want to see that these women are not sane.

    Good reporting, Frank

  • If the woman isn’t a part of the NXIVM/DOS group, she has no right to demand her picture be taken down. LOL

    Good thing I have it in my email. LOL

    • I took it down anyway, Scott, since there is no reason to allow her to suffer merely because she accidentally happened upon Nicki Clyne.

  • Kim Snyder
    This is an outrage to the victims’ families and a SLAP in the face – this should be banned from happening.
    This sort of activity should be stopped ASAP. Keith is in jail for a reason. This kind of news is saying- “We don’t give a damn about the victims, and those that have suffered and continue to suffer, at the hands of Vanguard”.
    This is an outrage!!!!!!! Kris is a victim- and now this crap!!!!!!!!

      • Nicki can not be punished because she has not been charged with a crime.
        But Raniere can be punished because he is in custody.
        Technically, all of the NXIVM criminal defendants could be punished if they were to communicate with other NXIVM members.

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.
