Nancy to Be Sentenced
There will be sentencing for one Nxivm-thorough advocate, group leader and “executive,” a longstanding head honcho for Keith Raniere, in just a month.
It is what appears to be one of the eeriest, yet Nxivm-esteemed, power-mongering oddball mothers of all oddball mothers, Nancy Salzman.
Nancy was recognized as second in authority only to Keith Raniere at Nxivm for many years, with more than 20 years at Raniere’s side under her belt. She had a quite exclusive gold sash, high on Raniere’s “sash status ladder” of gimcracks for Nxivm acolytes.
Two of Nancy Salzman’s own children, her only children, daughters Lauren and Michelle, followed Nancy into the lifestyle created by her and by Keith Raniere.
Michelle, Nancy and Lauren Salzman. Nancy brought them in young – for Raniere to teach and mentor.
About Nancy, Raniere had said that he appreciated Nancy’s abilities at hypnotism and also neuro-linguistic programming, as well as how Salzman could quickly engage a group of people when she gave a talk or a course for his and her emergent group’s benefit.
Subsequently, after twenty years of involvement and when the Nxivm gates began crashing down into multiple arrests, Nancy’s older daughter, Lauren, pled guilty to two federal charges, was a star witness at Raniere’s trial, and recently received five years of supervised probation. She received, to the surprise of a great many observers (me included), no time in federal prison, thanks to Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis, who cited her cooperation with prosecutors and her rehabilitative efforts as noteworthy factors in formulating his decisions about Lauren’s sentencing.
Lauren Salzman has said that she will never re-offend. People can take that or leave it. I prefer to take her at her word and to trust her to do her best, personally.
Her father indicated in a letter to the judge on her behalf, that Lauren has moved into a place of her own, i.e. she is no longer quite so under her mother’s thumb, although Lauren does seem to maintain a familial relationship with Nancy Salzman, who has some ongoing health difficulties. Nevertheless, living on her own does sound like a good and perhaps a hopeful step for Lauren.
More than one commenter, here at the Frank Report, has written similar and sometimes detailed commentary over the years, regarding all kinds of things about Nxivm leader, Nancy Salzman, who was reputedly second-in-command to Keith Raniere. Nancy is the one who got Nxivm incorporated in Delaware and served as Nxivm’s president, too.
Nancy Salzman, whilst sitting around being charged, alongside her ankle monitor, which often needs to be plugged into a wall socket, turned 67 in mid-July. She was found to be sitting on approximately $500,000 in Nxivm cash, stashed in her house and taken by law enforcement during a search of her premises.
Nancy to Be Sentenced in September
It might be a relief to be drawing near to the final two Nxivm sentencings – for Nancy Salzman and Kathy Russell, the latter who wasn’t as prominent within the organization but more of a go-fer who helped out with occasional threesomes with Raniere and some hapless third party.
Now is the time to come to the aid of Nancy Salzman’s imprisonment, if you like. Culling the Frank Report is a fine way to remind everybody what Nancy Salzman has stood for all of these years, since she met Raniere while shopping at a health food store.
Maybe some people will decide to revisit stories featuring Nancy Salzman in action. For she seems indeed fortunate, having entered a guilty plea for only one federal charge. There’s more that Nancy Salzman could come clean about, prior to her sentencing, but will she?
Evidently, she does not care for Raniere anymore, her former kissy-face boy-toy and her sanctified figurehead, partner in crime. I would like to discuss this more. However, some people around here would like their supper.
There could be a lot more to say about Nancy, though. And this is my favorite spot, right here, to let it roll.
Here’s an older Daily Mail headline from Sept 24, 2019 which I find as amusing as a good, old-fashioned, yet classic, Rod Serling sort of episode, as in straight from his renowned Twilight Zone TV series.
Divine indigestion: Nxivm founders Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman came together after she visited his wholesale supplement club seeking a remedy for her constant constipation.
Gee, I’m dying here over this constipation of Nancy’s. Thank you, Toni Natalie, so much for sharing this tail of slick and sludgy woe about NXIVM’s naissance, a messy and stinky story from its very “emergence.”
Nancy came in late 1997 or in 1998, evidently to consult with Toni Natalie for help with her intestinal clogginess, and Toni was already a by-then dissatisfied girlfriend of Raniere’s, and with Toni’s oh-so-healthy help, quite soon, Nancy got together with Keith Raniere.
Eventually but not very eventually at all, Keith and Nancy became attached, to the point where Salzman referred to Raniere as “her” wet kisses. For many years this came out of Nancy’s mouth, and often she and Keith met for breakfast, even if Raniere was quite busy enlightening others via jis spermatazoa elsewhere over the long nights.
So one could say that this tale went from one initial orifice called Nancy’s anal canal, to several, and in fact, to so many other orifices. And then it became a gigantic and inhumane bowel movement, lasting for nearly a generation, fabricating Nxivm and its many offshoots.
Already shortly after meeting her, Toni was consulting Nancy about her problems with Raniere as her supposedly significant other, as Toni and Nancy began to draw closer. When Toni broke it off with Raniere, both Nancy and Keith began to behave towards her like aggressive enemies, according to Toni.
And Toni Natalie has been able to show proof of their vengefulness towards her, despite Natalie’s own credibility snafus about certain other matters, over the years.
NXIVM was launched by Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman, together in 1998 and until the bitter end, though perhaps it is only curtailed and not completely over, even today.
These same exclusionary tactics and vengeful traits, actions, those used against their pal, Toni Natalie, show up throughout the history of NXIVM/DOS activities and in stories of Raniere’s and Salzman’s sanctioned behavior, towards many group members and/or other opponents, who tried to leave or who had otherwise offended Raniere and/or Nancy Salzman.
So CONSTIPATION was the first shot misfired, which began this rather popular and now notorious and phony human growth training, so far resulting in six arrests, pleas and more than a century in prison being handed to Keith Raniere, Nancy Salzman’s partner in crime.
Let us not forget Raniere’s 5-year probationary stint, should he survive to be around 160 years old. Claviger often reminds readers here of this humorously, about the 5 years probation awaiting Keith Raniere.
Interestingly, Nancy Salzman was introduced to Toni by Sandy Padilla, who was and is married to Nancy’s second husband, (by then) who is the father of both of Nancy’s daughters, Lauren and Michelle. As we know, both young ladies have spent years submerged in their mother’s and Raniere’s con games, although only Lauren was arrested, alongside her mother. Michelle ended up married to another Nxivm member.
“If Nancy were more regular in her bowel movements, Nxivm might have never happened,” Toni Natalie wrote in her book, The Program: Inside the Mind of Keith Raniere and the Rise and Fall of Nxivm. “Put another way: Vanguard was born because Prefect was, quite literally, full of s***.” (Informed readers know that Prefect was a title for Nancy, and Vanguard meant that appalling, nasty goose and moose, Raniere.)
Toni also noted that her “cocktail of vitamins and supplements she prescribed to Salzman worked out in the END (my bold, irresistibly) for the future cult founder.”
Does anybody else look at Nancy Salzman as Raniere’s equal, as a fundamental and a founding partner in crime with him, as I see it, when examining all of the crappy, crappy details? Not that I will object if I’m flying solo about Nancy Salzman being an originator and a sustainer of the whole stinking MOVEMENT.
Oh well. Order in the court. Soon enough, Nancy Salzman.
The END is near, once again. And I’m not anywhere near done discussing her movements, through the years. There is so much more, and ah well, it’s more than ready, ready to fire.
