The MDC dancers, known as the Forgotten Ones, convened again tonight.
They danced around the prison on all sides.
One observer told Frank Report, “They were all over the place tonight. I have studied pretty closely, and I think that the guards might be moving Keith Raniere around. What do you know about email communication? Seems to me that Nicki is getting the messages.
“Dr. Danielle looked bloated and terrible this evening. She has not been there for several nights. She did a flip, but I didn’t catch it. There was also a man with a camera and I am pretty sure I saw one member smoking pot.
“Also, their big ‘announcement’ was that they tricked a drum circle to come and play. What the Funk?”
While we have no video as of yet, here are a few pictures of the festivities tonight.
Finally, I think it is important to note that while the group leading the dance protest [The Forgotten Ones] may be there primarily for one prisoner, Keith Alan Raniere, they have made the issue of the poor treatment of all prisoners at MDC an issue.
For that, they are to be commended. The conditions at MDC, which houses mainly men who are awaiting trial and have been unable to make bail or were denied bail and, hence, are innocent until proven guilty, are horrific and any attention brought to the beastly and ghastly conditions there is worthwhile.
As one of the Forgotten Ones mentioned, the conditions that inmates suffer there would not be tolerated if it were animals, instead of humans, who were subjected to it. Surely there would be a hue and cry if dogs and cats were treated as these men and women are.
On top of that, the leaders of the Forgotten Ones have acknowledged their connection to Keith Raniere. So the public is now aware of their dual interest – in Raniere and in the other inmates. Perhaps some good will come out of it, although I can’t help but think that it will go worse for Raniere for this dancing, and might wind up costing him a better placement, in a closer to NYC prison.
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 prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.
Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
