BREAKING NEWS: Eight, Happy DOS ‘Slaves’ Come Out Publicly and Tell Their Stories on Website, ‘The DOSsier Project’

A new website has been launched by eight women, meant to show the positive side of DOS, the secret sorority created by Keith Raniere.

The website is called The DOSsier Project and is led by Nicki Clyne, one of the First Line Masters of DOS.

Frank Report broke the story of DOS on June 5, 2017. The revelation led to the cratering of Nxivm, as hundreds left the group and led to the October 2017 New York Times story that got the FBI involved, which led to Raniere’s arrest.

The thousands of stories that have been written about DOS since then have been almost universally told from the DOS victims’ perspective.

At the trial of Raniere, four DOS slaves testified – Sylvie, Nicole, Jaye, and Lauren Salzman. They painted an extremely cruel and horrifying picture of DOS – with branding women on the groin and blackmailing them into silence. Sleep deprivation, semi-starvation, and seduction assignments – all done while Keith Raniere ordering his First Line Masters to keep his role as the ultimate master a secret from the gullible women who were being recruited.

Now an alternate story emerges – with eight DOS slaves telling their stories online – in videos and prose –of how DOS was a positive experience for them.

We heard the negative stories – and, frankly, I have written many and was first to publish them – so I am glad to be the first to publish the news of another side – of DOS slaves speaking out on the positive side of DOS.

Let us review this then with an open mind. It’s possible that some had a positive experience while others found it horrifying and were true victims.

I am told that all eight DOS women made videos about their experiences and how they, as mature, adult women, made an informed choice to join DOS and are not regretful of that choice.

Without further ado, let us introduce the first eight women to come out and proclaim DOS to be a good and great thing for them.

Now for some testimonials of the DOS women:

Linda Chung

Transcript of Chung’s video

Hi, my name is Linda Chung. I am 51 years old and I live in New Jersey. I am a former lawyer, marketer, and news analyst. I have had my own businesses in real estate, consulting and coaching. I currently work in the financial services industry.

I went to Dartmouth College, Cornell Law School, and Columbia Business School. I am officially retired from the law but given recent events affecting many of my friends, I am focused on various projects aimed to bring awareness to the problems of “trial by media” and injustices in our legal system.

I was a member of DOS from early 2017 and have personal experience with this women’s group. I was not only fully aware of the nature, practices and purpose of DOS, I understand very clearly and firsthand how the media and people who were not a part of DOS and others have grossly misrepresented the portrayal of this group.

DOS was a women’s group to help women become a more potent force in the world.

The media’s portrayal of women as victims of DOS is simply not supported by facts and evidence. The focus on branding, sex and collateral is criminalizing behavior simply because women are involved.

To characterize a woman who had engaged in a sexual act of her own design and traveled from NYC to Albany as “sex trafficking” is absurd and tragic to real victims of sex trafficking.

To characterize “transcribing notes” for a memorial service as “forced labor” is similarly insulting and surely not the intent of these laws.

To characterize providing collateral as “blackmail” or somehow negating one’s consent is absurd – and doing so would make providing a house as collateral for a mortgage a crime or blackmail just because people “feared” their house would be taken.

Ask yourself, if this secret society were a group of men, would this be news? Why is it assumed that women are either “brainwashed” or “victims” and not an option that women would choose to uphold principles and their word – and to keep a vow of secrecy and lifelong commitment?

I WAS NOT a VICTIM:

I was not a victim of any forced labor.

I was not a victim of any branding.

I was not a victim of any coercion or sexual activity of any kind.

Instead, I CHOSE TO BE A PART OF DOS AND THEREBY:

I CHOSE to be responsible for my decisions and not a victim.
I CHOSE to commit to my decisions and not blame others.
I CHOSE to give my consent and collateral to help build my word.

I CHOSE TO BE A PART OF DOS.
I CHOOSE NOW TO SPEAK UP AGAINST INJUSTICE.
I CHOOSE NOW TO STAND UP FOR A PRINCIPLE OF TRUTH AND JUSTICE.

Transcript of Michele Hatchette

I really don’t believe that if the media was, you know, if the media in this country were run by black people or people of color, I don’t think this conversation would have gotten as far as it has.

And I think it would have been over the day it was presented to somebody because black people and people of color for centuries have recognized that white women have a certain kind of privilege that they can use when they feel uncomfortable.

They have a certain position where if they make a choice and they decide later that they didn’t like it, they get a pass in a way that we don’t get at all. And I think that like the NXIVM case as a whole – and Keith’s case in particular – really highlights in an extreme way the system of oppression and hate that our justice system is saturated in.

Likewise, I believe this situation really highlights in a big way how for centuries we continue to allow white women to distract us from the real violence that women of color and black women are experiencing. So, in this situation, you have so many inconsistencies, so many holes in these stories, so many questions not being answered or asked. And still, we’re believing that these claims, which are some of the most egregious crimes against humanity  – sex trafficking and forced labor – we are just taking that. When there are women in this country, I would imagine most brown who are in situations and being sex trafficked, who no one is talking about, who continue to get ignored because we love to watch these women cry and we think that we’re prioritizing that and paying more attention to that and giving away all these, using all these resources to continue to have that on the news cycle while this is still going on.

The fact that, like, we’re living in a country where we’re OK with that, I believe is a problem. And it’s a huge reason why I’m here because we have an incredible platform where I want black women and women of color and any woman in this country who right now continues to be ignored and is in one of the most vulnerable positions right now to stand with us while we have this megaphone to talk about actual injustice, not ‘I’m uncomfortable and I’m going to call that rape.’

Or sex trafficking or coercion or violence, this needs to end. And I think that we have the capacity to do that.

I want black women and women of color and any woman in this country who right now continues to be ignored and is in one of the most vulnerable positions right now to stand with us while we have this megaphone to talk about actual injustice, not I’m uncomfortable and I’m going to call that rape.

Hopefully, anyone watching this will see that we’re all grown ass women, you know.

But I think there’s still a lot of space for confusion, in a way that we can easily address. So even this term ‘sex slave,’ Leah, you mentioned what that actually is, and similarly, I’ve read legal cases of what sex trafficking charges typically entail, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s tragic what happens to women who are marginalized and abused. And certainly, that was not my experience, nor I think that of anyone who participated in DOS.

So, what was our experience like? Did anyone here have an experience that was anything close to being a sex slave?

When I think about the concept of all these women being sex slaves for Keith Raniere, of course, I’m very sensitive now to the concept of sex slaves, and so I pay attention when I see that in the news or anything to do with sex slaves.

And there was a ton of news coverage about NXIVM, the cult, and all these sex slaves. But interestingly, during that time, I actually came across a few other articles about other sex slaves. And what really hurt a lot was to read situations where I would call women sex slaves and how different it was.

And I think one of the big costs to women in the world with the whole sensationalization of DOS is that true sex slaves are diminished or what is considered a sex slave is sort of sensationalized, almost glamorized.

Like, us, you know, very well-off, privileged women in North America doing something and sort of having this like cute little secret society, we’re calling that “sex slaves.” Meanwhile, I read about women in Indonesia who live in these farming villages where they live like season-to-season and they’re told, “Come with me to some other country and I’ll give you work as a maid or something in a house. And you can make a bunch of money and send it back to your family.” And they go and they literally are chained to a room and raped. That is a sex slave. A woman participating with a group of other women to better herself is not a sex slave.

Leah Mottishaw, The DOSsier Project

There will be more to hear from The DOSsier Project, I am told, and it will undoubtedly be worthwhile to check for updates.  Readers may want to start with Frequently Asked Questions as the women explain that “DOS no longer exists, but the spirit of compassionate, strong women working together lives on!”
Maybe, if this is true, with Raniere gone – off to a lifetime in prison – these compassionate, strong women can somehow interpret the pain of the women who feel they were victims and approach them for healing and peace, perhaps even friendship, and with an understanding that both perspectives of DOS may be true.

  • Okay, so I listened to Chung. She just does not get it. All cults have this. Scientology is the same. They pretend the sea org etc are like priests making a vow of life long poverty and obedience. They then use slave labour. People are hooked in and find it hard to leave. It is very very hard to prosecute cults because of the issue of what is consent and what is not but here it is open and shut – clear, many victims did a lot of work for no pay; they gave up careers; some were sued excessively; others were not told KR wanted sex with members; others were not told they were going to be branded.

    These people still in the group will not do themselves any favours by persisting with trying to make everyone think everything was fine.

    They should instead pursue other interests as they will just waste their time and not get KR released. This is not a case where prosecutors have lied. it is a rightful case with lots of clear evidence. If they want a cause go after helping the people sued by KR and get justice and more importantly money for them.

    • Clyne’s is ridiculous. “Literally chained to a bed and raped” etc. – so much of what she describes as real sex slaves is what happened to other women in DOS.

  • It’s typical and even expectable, that in the downfall of a cult and its leader, and the aftermath, a few dead-ender loyalists will remain who see things through rose colored glasses, regardless of how bad what went on actually was. There was a somewhat similar situation with Manson Family diehards; the dancing at the jail is even reminiscent of that earlier group’s antics.

    I notice that none of these women express any concern that so many others found the situation abusive; what I read is that they got what they consider to be a worthwhile experience (I think most of them were not really in the thick of things in Clifotn Park, and weren’t subject to having sex with Raniere) and are unconcerned about what happened to others also involved, which may say something about their state of mind. Nicky Cline does ask “Did anyone here have an experience that was anything close to being a sex slave?” as if it’s an open question; maybe not “here,” but obviously beyond those 5 there are more than that many who were in DOS and now consider it to have been sex slavery or something similarly coercive.

    Also, those bios all sound like attempts to put a positive spin on careers that have fallen down the rabbit hole, involving playing at being ‘advocates’ and ‘coaches’ while likely doing menial work to actually make ends meet, given what we know of how NXians end up – hardly ‘executive success’, and certainly none sound as if they work for an sort of substantial corporation or organization.

    • Yes, it’s strange – as if they can compartmentalize what was done to others and say well it was fine for me, therefore, it’s okay.

  • Here’s the comment Scott left on their website: I’ll give you a fair hearing on my podcast that has been held weekly for over five years, and normally discusses MLM scams. Past episodes can be found here: https://www.buildingfortunesradio.com/scott-johnson-peter-mingils/ and Frank Parlato has been on. If you want to talk prior to the show you can contact me at my Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/ScottTexJohnson and we can use the voice app.

  • These women were in DOS to “push against their fears” and be “strong women.” Yet not a single one testified for the defense. Instead they release this right before sentencing and act like some major injustice has happened. Makes no sense. To say they were afraid of being prosecuted for testifying shows they had a guilty conscience and were not willing to fight for the “truth,” that they now claim to represent. They think their bios make them so important and credible, but it really just shows that they have an inflated sense of self-importance just like their “Grandmaster.” I would ask them how many times did NXIVM use the legal system to mess up other people’s lives? And since there are “no victims” and everyone is “at cause” in their own life, don’t those philosophies apply to their “Grandmaster”? Also when is Clyne being prosecuted for immigration fraud since was not actually living with Mack or in a real marriage?

    • I think it’s more really that they may have been afraid that if they testified, they would risk confessing to having been involved in criminal activity for which they could be charged. That’s perpetration, not suffering persecution.

      You are right that they at least lack conviction, if they weren’t really to take a possible (or imagined) risk to do what they now position as the right thing.

      • I agree – although the same point could apply now if they admit to anything criminal or knowing about anything criminal – which is a big risk to take and lose even more credibility. They seem to have lost their careers because KR liked to make people feel really inadequate and worse than they started, pushed them down, had them give up their careers even, and ruined their lives even if they think he did them so much good.

  • How is it that Michele, being 33 years old, went to one of the first integrated schools?? That’s just a ridiculous statement as all schools were integrated well before she entered even kindergarten. Also, Danielle is the former Dr that branded all of these women. This website is an attack on the victims of DOS and Keith Ranieri in general. I’m disgusted.

    • “Danielle, 39, has been a body enthusiast, athlete, and health advocate her entire life. She taught aerobics and personally trained her way through school. She studied psychobiology and completed a dual degree in Osteopathic Medicine & Clinical Nutrition. She served our communities as a physician, medical director, hospitalist, and entrepreneur.”

      Nowhere does it say in her bio that she actually is a doctor, i.e., gone to med school; or even an academic doctor, i.e., received a Ph.D. It says that “she served our communities as a physician…” That’s pretty shady phrasing. And what is a “hospitalist”? I read her bio as this: she got a degree (could be a masters, could be a BA) and she loves aerobics. And how does branding someone with a cauterizing pen align with “first, do no harm,” the Hippocratic Oath that all doctors swear to?

  • i had not watched the videos of the women. I was busying admiring the videos of frank/.
    These women are VERY DISTURBING. The hate they have for other women is noticeable and scary

  • Michele Hatchette talks about how white woman are evil bla bla… WOMEN AND GIRLS OF COLOR WERE RAPED BY RAINERE.
    Cami and Dani are NOT white women. They are women of color. It is also OK if white women call rainere out. Stop invalidating women Michele!

    • Yes, I was surprised she raised a race issue. Illegal immigrant vulnerable very young Mexican woman aged 15 in the hands of a white man of 45 is hardly a privileged white US woman.

  • Thing is these women (or Raniere) don’t get to define what being a victim is. The law does. It has done so. Thank goodness.

  • Leah lost me with her comment about DOS being well to do women, while other women who are trafficked are poor. Sex trafficking isn’t just for poor women. And, I cannot imagine any woman of color listening to Michelle and thinking dedicating her life to some creepy old white dude, aka slavery is okay.
    These women are vapid bobble heads.

    • She is one of the Seattle/Vancouver members we haven’t heard much about, though she has shown up on lists of DOS slaves and remaining diehards. I have her down as Leah Lim Mottishaw – Orange Sash/1 Stripe. Diane Lim, who I believe is her sister, was also in DOS and remained a loyalist – I have her as Yellow Sash 3/Stripes.

      Her being so distant, I don’t think she was subject to having sex with Raniere like those who were in Clifton Park, and would have been less likely to even have a clue about the worst of what went on in the inner circle, so it’s not entirely surprising that she still sees things through rose colored glasses. I think that may apply to Chung as well, and maybe at least one other.

      HAND, NG!

  • it’s wild how educated and stupid people can be simultaneously. I think anyone with a brain and heart can agree that no decent person would let anyone else be branded… ever

    • Yes, on the website mentiond are more videos and Chung, an ex lawyer, compares mortgages and collateral (actually in a way unhelpful to KR as banks follow through if you don’t pay the mortgage and yet DOS has always said no collateral would have been released ever)…. but that analogy falls down. The bank asks for security charged over a property not naked photos. Those who put house deeds up as collateral in DOS – that specific thing if not forced – fine – very very very stupid but that one thing where no coercion is fine but that fact Chung did not feel coerced does not mean the victims did not.

  • Just wondering…. When exactly will (‘They’) be going after the (Snake’s decapitated) body??? .. S E R I O U S L Y

  • These women need to read this Vanity Fair interview with their fellow DOSsier India Oxenberg.
    She is White–yes.
    And Privileged. — the very definition.

    But what made her FINALLY wake up is UNDENIABLE. And it doesn’t have anything to do with her whiteness or her privilege. It was her own discovery of FACTUAL PROOF– Recordings she discovered among Alison Mack’s duffel bag. Recordings of Keith Raniere admitting he did everything he is being accused of.

    This is what finally made her open her eyes. The truth of who he really is.

    What will it take for these women?

    https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/10/india-oxenberg-opens-up-about-her-familys-nxivm-nightmare

    • “What will it cost for these women?”

      Deprived of many years of their lives and a possible professional existence. And perhaps many years in prison if they were involved in or aided and abetted in crimes. And if they are convicted of damages in civil actions, they will probably be financially ruined for the rest of their lives.

    • Very good point. In the FLDS group, the leaders were brighter – the internet was banned so they could not hear the video the FBI seized of Warren Jeffs having group sex including with a 12-year-old wife with other wives around the bed. Here these largely bright women on DOS surely can hear recordings of KR that prove things they don’t believe.

  • Definition of both collateral and blackmail:

    Collateral:

    Definition of collateral:

    “1: property (such as securities) pledged by a borrower to protect the interests of the lender.”

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/collateral

    Definition of blackmail:

    “Blackmail is an act of coercion using the threat of revealing or publicizing either substantially true or false information about a person or people unless certain demands are met. It is often damaging information, and may be revealed to family members or associates rather than to the general public. It may involve using threats of physical, mental or emotional harm, or of criminal prosecution, against the victim or someone close to the victim.[1][2] It is normally carried out for personal gain, most commonly of position, money, or property.[1][3][4][5]”

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackmail

    • Thank you. These “highly successful and smart” women should be ashamed to pretend there is no problem with the BLACKMAIL.

  • Someday, this will be used as groundwork for a psychological study on issues such as rape trauma and Stockholm syndrome. Absolutely brilliant of Vantard to bring this out now, given that the sentence is likely already cast.

    But remember Vantard, today is the first day of the rest of your life sentence!

  • Dear Nxivm 5,

    How many umbrella organizations and sub organizations will you be creating?

    Let’s see so far the Nxivm 5 have created the following:

    1. The DOSier Project

    2. Forgotten Ones

    3. Make Justice Blind

    4. Nubile Virgins 4 Vanguard

    Your master Kieth Vanguard Raniere has taught you well; by having so many different various organizations, you have created a façade of legitimacy.

    Vanguard would be so proud. Yeah!

    “We give thanks to Vanguard.”

    • Yes, such a waste of their effort. They should try to get their careers going or put more effort into them instead.
      1. above seems to be Dangerous Mics, LLC. The site’s terms say “The term “Dangerous Mics LLC,” “us,” “we” or “our” refers to Dangerous Mics LLC and the other partnerships, corporations and other undertakings that are authorized to carry the name “Dangerous Mics” or one or more of those undertaking as the context requires. “

  • Perusing the “DOS Dossiers” I’m reminded of Nicki Clyne’s video interview with Frank and statement on record posted here on FR not days hence that “DOS does not exist.”

    • Heidi-

      Get with the program! Nicki, like her character on the hit tv show BattleStar Galactica, lives in an alternate universe.

  • However many brainwashed followers he still has on the outside, Raniere is going to be nobody’s master but Rosy Palms for the rest of his life. In fact, he had better pray the Bureau of Prisons really does lodge him in isolation in the dreaded SuperMax, or else he may very well end up the branded DOS slave of his new cellmates.

  • These women don’t seem to grasp the fact that their experience doesn’t matter and has absolutely no bearing on this case. Out of 150 DOS slaves, there are 8 who are going on record. That leaves 142 other women who are not siding with them. This case is about the women who were victimized and came forward. And it’s about the mountain of evidence that supports it, because this lunatic insisted in recording and saving everything.

    • You’re wrong, 152 was the total number of women that D.OS got to have that includes the 8 front-line teachers, of which only Nicky is part of this new group that gives testimony

  • Linda Chung, when the bank records your house as collateral, they don’t come around every month asking you for even more collateral. Nor do they require collateral before letting you know the terms of the loan. Sheesh.

  • It’s really sad because you have to release yourself. Nothing we tell these women will convince them that Keith is a monster. The victims of a cult have to come to their own realizations – to release themselves.

    All we can do is continue to show the truth, help them if asked, and hope that they see the light.

    • hope more people see that this is the best way, because if you insist on judging who are innocent victims and who are the evil henchmen of Raenier, you will only be pressing the answer button (flee or fight)

  • “Grown ass women” who have been brainwashed by a sociopath, and are making this the hill they die on. Anyone who has read anything about “Vanguard” can see he is a narcissistic manipulator who has done this to scores of women for over 30 years. I’m more interested in listening to the women who escaped, exposed him and have done the deprogramming work that is giving them their life. Dude talks about babies being “rapeable” anyone defending him has ZERO credibility, ethics or morality based on that alone. Also…why do this a day before sentencing? Oh right, because “Vanguard” told them to. Just like he thinks he knows better than his lawyer who advised against all of these antics knowing it won’t help his appeal. Lock this maniac up in the Supermax and let’s all stop talking about him and giving him the attention he craves.

  • To the women of DOS, a serious question:

    What good have you done? I am not talking “empowered”.

    What have you done to stop trafficking? Shelter the homeless? Feed the poor?

    Your assignments, I think, were to recruit, seduce your vanguard, find virgins…?

    But seriously, what good have you actually done? Mother Theresa stuff.

  • I managed to watch 2.31 minutes of Michele’s recording. Michele enjoys talking about anything else, anything else BUT the crimes committed by Raniere. That’s how her mind copes with his loooong history of crime: let’s look at anal hair on X, Y and Z; let’s look at the chemical composition of the stratosphere above Madagascar and how it changed in helium concentration between the Bronze and the Iron ages… Anything but, anything but…

    Wow!!!

    These clothed monkeys are such a waste of oxygen!

    • It’s as if she joined directly into DOS, later, bypassing NXIVM shenanigans all together, and considers herself elite: recognizing the “Main Umbrella” platform was, in fact, a cult, she was too savvy to fall for.

      Now, beyond exhausted, just trying to get to that next tier in Superior Master’s Seduction Endeavor(s) (like she’s still convinced it’s 2016 & the luckiest girl in the harem A N D def Not 2016 & Nicki or Allison’s laziest recruited DOS pledge aka ‘Feed her to Vanguard’s gross penis and don’t bother [us] again (for at least 3 weeks)’

      That’s not shenanigans, rather, just small-mindedness + rote schtick

    • You statement, “look at the chemical composition of the stratosphere above Madagascar and how it changed in helium concentration”, is right of the movie The Black Panther.

  • Public opinion-wise, India Oxenberg’s project repeatedly playing clips of Keith Raniere talking about raping babies is going to do far more damage to him than these women could ever repair.

    They are doing damage to themselves by saying it’s okay for him to be advocating a perspective that this is an okay topic that we should all be pondering.

  • These women are delusional, they have suffered years of brainwashing and they cannot see clearly. If KR had not been arrested, they would still be doing the same thing because they are predators too. I can’t wait for this garbage to be thrown into prison and never hear from this nasty group again.

  • This has Keith all over it. Any problem can be solved by a fake company with questionable graphic design to seem like it’s for “empowered” women. Collateral, aka blackmail for sex acts is not empowering. Where is reality for these people?

  • In the UK ‘Dosser’ is a word used to describe a lazy, homeless, city dweller. The government or charity assists by providing ‘Dosshouses’ for them to sleep – somewhere to lay their weary and unfortunate heads.

  • Will be interesting to revisit their beliefs in a year or so when the KR veil fades and they are left to think for themselves again. Sad to see success when trying to fill a void with such evil practices.

  • These women are too mind-bent to see that the turd of slavery glittered in the terms of female empowerment is still a turd.

    The VanFraud, in his excellent sociopathic ability to manipulate in word salad, has them convinced that DOS is equivalent to other forms of discipline like the martial arts or the like, where the path to self-control often entails a temporary pain for a greater goal. Except in the VanFraud’s case, he couldn’t give a shit about the real goals of any of these women as long as he can use them as tools to grow his new MLM of slave pods of women with “collateral” (blackmail), e.g., nude pictures, deeds to property, true or not (how ethical!) shameful stories, etc. Sure, this “discipline” is maintained under the threat of the release of “collateral” (how empowering!)–which is necessary because women have been treated as princesses for far too long–might involve finding him a “sex toy”, participating in a group blow job, or a trek out to a cabin in the woods where oral sex is to be performed on himself or others, but this “babying” of women when it comes to sex is just another way of treating women like children and has got to stop! How dare you call a spade for what it is–sexploitation or sex trafficking!

    We empowered women have chosen to do this because there are no ultimate victims. But most women aren’t as evolved or as strong as us and our grandmaster, so we must lie (how ethical!) to those we bring in, and when they complain, can’t handle, or finally see DOS for what it truly is, it’s just because these women are weak little princesses just like he told us.

  • They are coming across as disciples of Vanguard rather than a new independent group.

    A group of women fighting sex traffickers, whose founder was a brainwashing sex trafficker.

    Best of luck in your endeavors. Wear his initials on your crotches the rest of your lives, because that’s what most people will be thinking of when they’re looking at you, pretending to be listening.

    Just my humble opinion.

  • “… this like cute little secret society…” (Leah)

    Whoa, whoa whoa. When women tried to get out of this “cute little society” and were told their collateral (blackmail) would be released if they tried… and there were previous escapees who had their lives destroyed by vexatious lawsuits, it kind of ceases to be a cute little sorority.

    • Leah is in the ‘The Vow’ being told in very unminced words that what she was doing was illegal. If she didn’t care then, she certainly doesn’t care now.

  • Linda Chung, you just gave a long-winded, perhaps parroted speech that you are an empowered pimp that must use others’ misery to decorate your soul. That you want to mimic a Mafia model of representing your interests.

    That if it didn’t happen to you, it’s nonexistent.

    Noted.

    Many of these attractive, educated, talented people are like dark voids. I don’t understand how others don’t see this within seconds. I think one is enough for the night. I’m saddened and terrified she really does understand the psychopathy and celebrates it.

  • In Hungary, DOS activities (MLM) are classified as women for sexual activity. In peasant language, he’s called a pimp and he’s punished by the law. It’s an activity in itself. And its closure for two years is considered a restriction on personal liberty and is even more severely punished by the lawmaker. (Taking someone’s arm or arming them and taking them to another location against their will is already an act.)

  • It’s one thing saying they had a great experience in DOS but another to call someone who didn’t a liar. They need to be careful they don’t get sued.

  • A woman who participates with a group of other women to improve herself isn’t a sex slave? All right, let’s say, since you volunteered, it’s not. But what about the girl with the underage, grown-up body, but still a childish soul? Who is controlled by her instincts, but is not yet able to make the right decision for herself on her own because she is inexperienced and mentally immature with the “games” of adults.

  • Any idea why this was not presented at trial?

    Hey, great reporting, Frank! Everything is so fascinating! Have a good rest!

    • Both Michele Hatchette and Nicki Clyne wrote affidavits last week that they wanted to testify but were afraid of being charged by the feds. That might be one reason.

      • That’s right. Thanks for clarifying.
        Congratulations on the wonderful reporting. I really like the new audience dynamics you’ve created.

      • They should be afraid of being charged for their involvememt with sex trafficking, extortion and being accessories of KR.

      • Oh, do try harder to help them and get them off Frank, look at all these mild-mannered pretty women! Surely they are all so demurely innocent? Do they have anything to do with that cult? The one with all the branding and rictus grins?

      • What on earth could they be charged with? Look at them, demure American girls, is there some sort of reason they shouldn’t be enjoying free and comfortable lives?
