Emiliano Salinas to Have TV Series Promoting His Lies About Quitting Nxivm

Emiliano Salinas and lover Alex 'El Duce' Betancourt in green t shirts [denoting their rank] bow before their mighty Vanguard, along with the other coaches and members of Nxivm Mexico City.
An informed Mexican source and Mexican journalist tells me that Emiliano Salinas is preparing a TV series about his experiences at Nxivm.
It is to be released by Televisa, the large Mexican television network, to whom, by the way, Keith Alan Raniere, Lauren Salzman and Nicki Clyne leaked the video of Sara Edmondson being branded.
My source wrote to me, “Can you imagine, Frank? Emiliano telling his own version of events? What madness!”
It will be a nice whitewash for the dishonest former Nxian. And will very likely follow the dishonest narrative the rascal has already told the Mexican public.
In May 2019, during the trial of Keith Alan Raniere, Salinas told the media that when he learned of the abuses in Nxivm and DOS, he “immediately cut off any type of contact.”
That is not quite true, however. First he tried to intimidate whistleblowers like Toni Zarattini and others when they sought to expose the branding practices of DOS.
It was only after the media in Mexico started to severely criticize Raniere and chastise Emiliano did he denounce Nxivm.
In the HBO documentary series the VOW, Emiliano, appears with Raniere in a video .
He says, “Hello, my name is Emiliano Salinas. I am from a political family. My father was the president of Mexico from 1988 to 1994, at a time of great change in my country, which inspired me to seek a better understanding of human and social transformation.”
So he joined a sex cult.
Alejandro ‘El Duce’ Betancourt [l] with his lover and partner Emiliano Salinas [r] both were devotees of the Vanguard for more than 15 years. When the publicity got too hot, they quickly denounced him.

On May 23, 2019, during the trial of Rainere, Salinas denounced his Vanguard, who he first came to follow in 2002.

Frank Report was first to publish a startling video of Salinas dancing in tribute to Keith Raniere during V-Week 2016 [see below].

The video was widely circulated on social media in Mexico after Frank Report published it.

Salinas, lying, said that when he learned of the abuses in DOS, he immediately cut off any type of contact with Nxivm.

“In recent days, various information and images related to practices carried out within the group called DOS have been made public, which I categorically condemn and reject,” Salinas said in a letter addressed to the public, during the trial of Raniere.  “During the period of my commercial association with the company Nxivm, I never participated or was involved in any way with DOS and, as has been revealed in the coverage of the case itself, its members always denied the existence of practices that are known today about the group.”

His nose grew several inches as he recited these lies.

How do we now they are lies?

Because he was caught on audio tape by Nxivm whistleblower Toni Zarattini,in August 2017.

Those tapes were published in 11 parts by Frank Report, which clearly shows that Emiliano knew about the branding and blackmail of DOS and tried to prevent Zaratinni from being a whistleblower – or else!

Here are a few of the articles I posted.

NXIVM Secret Tapes; Part 1: Loreta Garza lies about why Vicente and Edmondson left NXIVM

Part 3: Secret tape: Zarattini finds out about DOS; and Keith’s sleeping with students

Part 5: Secret tapes: Salinas claims Vicente and Edmondson are part of a plot to extort money from NXIVM

Part 7 Secret Salinas- Zarattini tapes: Emiliano explains how he learned about collateral from woman who made sex tape of herself to stay skinny


Part 10 Secret Recording: Salinas & Zarattini: Salinas bashes Frank Report; ties Vicente and Edmondson to it & extortion

Part 9: Secret Recording: Salinas & Zarattini: Salinas explains how Anthony Ames stormed out of NXIVM and his wife, Sarah Edmondson, sneaked out


Part 11 Secret Recording: Insane gibberish from Emiliano on confidentiality agreement and paranoia about extortion

Yet Emiliano said, “when at the beginning of 2018 an acquaintance involved in DOS decided to tell me about her experiences, I resigned and immediately cut off any type of contact with Nxivm; this with deep consternation at the atrocities that I heard.”

As the tapes prove it is a lie. He knew all about DOS in 2017.

It will be interesting to see the Telvisa series by Emiliano as he seeks to shape shift and revise and lie – about his role with the Vanguard.

Lies, shape shifting and revisionism –Emi is a chip right off the old Vanguard’s block.

Emiliano Salinas embraces his worshipful master Keith Raniere. The kindly Raniere agreed to do all the thinking for Emiliano for more than 15 years. It must be an awesome and scary experience for the wee lad to now think for himself.

  • The Mexican media is even more corrupt and dishonest than the American media.
    Four TV networks are run by Televisa, which is an ally of the PRI party and the Salinas family.
    Believe nothing of what the mainstream Mexican media says.

    Emiliguano Salinas will not openly support NXIVM but he will covertly back it through his puppets and useful idiots.

  • Salinas and Vicente aren’t much different – I don’t see the evidence of Salinas knowing about (or believing it was true) the cauterizing of Raniere’s initials in the womens’ pubic area. LOL

    Vicente didn’t leave until he found out about it, either, even though there was plenty of other very weird things going on, assuming one wasn’t in another sex cult prior to NXIVM. LOL

    Both Salinas and Vicente ran to the media and apparently took full credit for being heroes as well and both probably made a lot of money from NXIVM – they are two peas in a pod. LOL

  • Watched two episodes of The Vow. I respect Vicente for doing a 180, but man what a total loser. Not shocked at all he’s a cult hopper. But I definitely look at Sarah Edmondson differently. She’s got more guts than you’d think a wishy-washy failed actress would have. She should have been a tough as nails saleswoman instead, she’d have made big bucks.

    Raniere is definitely high-ish IQ (maybe 140 range), uses word salad to confuse the naive recruits, and blind them to how completely untrustworthy he is, but people lie to themselves 24/7. Denial is mankind’s default state. The “be responsible for your own feelings” is classic narcissism. I pity these people, but remember, most can’t bring themselves to leave a shitty significant other, so I can see why it would be so hard to leave the many friendships and a group you spent thousands of dollars on, and invested in personally. They’ve convinced themselves they’re stronger having joined it.

    A cautionary tale. It’s sad people had to get hurt to internalize the lessons they likely already learned as children. SHould just listen to your mother 90% of the time, really. Vicente’s mother made me laugh. I do find it amusing he records all his conversations
