John Tighe: The Idiot’s Guide to Keith Raniere

Keith Raniere about the time he stopped having sex with Kathy Russell - after demanding from her a lifelong commitment to never have sex with another man as long as she lived.
MK10ART- Portrait of John Tighe

It seems to me with all the recent discussion about the legality of the conviction of Keith Raniere AKA Vanguard, one would think he committed nothing more than a statutory rape against a willing teenager.

So, for all of you who don’t know the whole story about Keith – and that obviously includes Suneel Chakravorty – let’s take a brief trip down memory lane.

*****

Keith Alan Raniere

Part 1: Getting to Know Raniere

KEITH RANIERE IS A LIAR.

And not just your average liar.

Keith is a pathological, compulsive, and farcical liar.

I have never been able to understand how adults who society has judged to be competent could fall for his complete and total bullshit.

Here’s a little test for Frank Report readers:

Guess which things Raniere really claimed:

A. He was his Pre-school Class Judo Champion at the age of 3.

B. He was East Coast Judo Champion at age 12.

Keith Raniere [left] said he won the East Coast Judo Championship when he was 11.

A. Raniere wrote his first full Opera at the age of 4. The next year it premiered at the Metropolitan Opera.

B. By the age of twelve, he taught himself to play piano at the concert level; his passion and aptitude for music would inspire him to master many other musical instruments – and he eventually learned to play seven musical instruments.”

He played concert level perversion at the age of 57.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

A. He was invited to the Playboy Mansion in California where he had sex with multiple bunnies at age 4.

B. He understood quantum physics and computers by age 4.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

A. He was verified by the Guinness Book of World records as the smartest man in the world.

B. He won the “Best Costume” award as a giant penis at his Middle School’s Halloween dance.

Keith Raniere

——————————————————————————————————————————-

A. He won the watermelon seed spitting contest at 9 at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo.

B. He tied the New York State high school record for the 100-yard dash.

Keith Raniere said he tied for New York State record for the 100 yard dash.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

A. He claims to hold 147 international patents, including 47 in the United States; to have earned degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in mathematics, biology and physics, with minors in philosophy and psychology; and to have authored two books.

B. He founded Harvard University in 1636.

Wooden puppet Ranierchio in the firenze.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

Anyway, you get the point.

Keith wasn’t the average liar – he was a true master of verbal façade. A deceptive fuck that got off on selling people worthless info as it were fact.

All to blow himself up.

And the funniest thing was these feeble-minded idiots fell for this shit.

Just a suggestion: next time someone says they’re one of the top three problem solvers in the world, ask them: OK, asshole, what shit did you solve?

Part 2: What Was Raniere Selling in NXIVM?

Nothing.

It was all a scam.

It started with Consumers’ Buyline Inc. (CBI), a bullshit rip-off company that was shut down by New York State.

Keith Raniere, dressed in an elegant sweater, shows how to make money in his MLM scheme, Consumers’ Buyline.
Before he became Vanguard, Keith Raniere started a business called Consumers’ Buyline. It failed and went out of business.

Next was National Health Network, another scam selling questionable vitamins to the gullible and foolish.

Finally, he joined with Nancy Salzman, a nurse and trained practitioner of sorcery and neurolinguistic programming, to found NXIVM, a sinkhole of bogus information with a side of pseudoscience along with a system of theories, assumptions, and methods erroneously regarded as facts.

Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman when they first created Executive Success in 1998. She was there every step of the way.

This led to a type of Neo-shamanism, with Raniere as the all-powerful and knowing leader of what quickly became a cult of personality.

*****

Part 3:  The Bronfman Bitches

Enter the stupid Bitch Sisters to the tune of “Send in the Clowns.”

NXIVM probably would have died a natural death – and Raniere would have gone on to be the world’s greatest insurance salesman – were it not for the fact that Sara and Clare Bronfman fell into his lap.

Two of the most fucked-up members of one of the world’s most fucked-up families.

Sara and Clare Bronfman

The only thing keeping them off the JERRY SPRINGER SHOW was the money they inherited – lots of it.

Raniere hit the Big Scam Lottery when Sara and Clare joined NXIVM.

Two dumb bitches with guilt complexes, low self-esteem, limited intellectual capacities, and no direction in life.

Raniere milked them like two fucking cows, twice a day.

Now, he had the money – and the political and societal connections that came with it – to go after his enemies.

I know… I was one of those enemies.

*****

Part 4: Raniere the Rapist

Keith had been a pedophile long before he co-founded NXIVM – or, more correctly, a hebephile.

His crimes were numinous and well documented.

His first known victim was Rhiannon when she was 12 and 13 years old.

She met Raniere in 1990 when her mother worked for Consumers’ Buyline Inc.

Here is the police report Rhiannon signed. Note she said she had “sexual intercourse with a man named Keith Raniere. This occurred when I was approximately 12-13 years old and occurred either at Keith’s townhouse at 3 Flintlock Lanes, Clifton Ny or his business located at Rome Plaza Clifton Park, NY”
Rhiannon was part of his harem when she was 12 years old. She ran away from the harem and was put in juvenile home. Keith Raniere escaped charges. He was 30.

She filed a State Police report against Raniere in 1993 for rape but, even then, it seemed the police were acting as his personal protectors. Her complaint was dismissed when she refused to wear a wire during a meeting with Raniere.

Gina Hutchinson was statutorily raped by Keith Raniere, according to numerous women who say they were also his victims.

Next was Gina Hutchinson, who was 14 or 15 when he started fucking her. He destroyed her both physically and spiritually.

She was shattered and was either murdered or committed suicide.

I could go on and on, but you can see the pattern.

Keith Alan Raniere liked them young. 
*****

Part 5: Even More Depravity

The smartest man in the world kept getting bolder and bolder.

He seemed to get bored easily and, as time passed, he demanded more and more from his inner circle.

His appetite for underage flesh was insatiable but he also continued to enjoy humiliating and degrading his most loyal followers.

He got his rocks off on their suffering as he put them through test after test of self-inflicted pain.

For reasons unknown, Keith was protected by both the police and the high and mighty in politics in Upstate NY.

Keith was free to do as he pleased.

His experiments became more and more grotesque.

I truly believe his human branding games were just preparation for his ultimate objective: human sacrifice.

Keith Raniere

I believe Keith would have eventually ordered his followers into a ritual of human sacrifice.

Do I have proof of this? Nope, nada, zilch.

But it does follow a natural progression of ever-escalating tests of the devotion of his acolytes.

What better way to show your strength, your love, and your toughness than slaughter a helpless, innocent person?

I think Raniere was enthralled by the power of the Mexican drug cartels – especially their blind obedience and their cruelty. He saw those as strengths.

*****

Part 6: Raniere and Alyssa Rozenbaum AKA Ayn Rand

 

So much of what Ayn Rand believed seemed to be motivated by naked revanchism.

Her whole obnoxious, condescending, superior, more-intellectual-than-thou schtick appealed to Raniere.

Ayn Rand was willing to bend the truth, and sometimes outright lie, to promote herself. From an early age, she admired serial killers, rapists and others who showed brutality to the weak. She also despised the softer side of humanity, such as empathy, generosity or familial bonds.

Raniere’s “teachings” reflected a lot of Ayn Rand’s thinking:

Charity is for suckers – and it’s not especially noble to engage in it.

Monterrey NXIVM – Isn’t that Ayn Rand’s photo hanging on the wall?

Helping those who need help corrupts society.

The wealthy are wealthy because they deserve it.

Even though the Bronfman bitches never worked a day in their lives and couldn’t be bothered to graduate from high school, they were to be revered because of their wealth.

This vision of Raniere and Rand appealed to the Bronfman bitches – and soothed their collective guilt.

Rand’s vision of the world was based on rational selfishness: i.e., that it was rational to pursue self-interest.

Your own pleasure was the most important goal in one’s life.

Even if that means fucking children, lying, cheating, or manipulating people into self-mutilation.

The Bronfmans were taught that charity was at best foolish and at worst evil.

MK10Art – Raniere with his golden gooses Clare and Sara Bronfman

Poor people should be gassed just for being poor, and all charity was quasi-sinful.

This is what Raniere really taught.

Just substitute Lucifer in for the Poor and Raniere could have written it himself.

One word: Selfishness.

Of course, I reject Objectivism – I’m too theistic, too classical, and too religious for that bullshit.

In an individual, selfishness uglifies the soul.

I believe that Objectivism is based on FEAR – and that Raniere is – just like Rand was – a frightened little asshole.

Terrified that the world would find out that he’s really no big deal.

People who are completely self-centered preserve their “self” by sacrificing others.

The Bronfmans are afraid of poverty, afraid of solitude, afraid of confronting the grotesqueness of their own lives.

One of the strings binding the sisters is that again and again, their fear pushed them into committing more craven acts of selfishness.

Raniere – who sacrificed children for his pleasure – is now terrified that he will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

*****

Part 8: Conclusion

At the very moment when he was at the height of his power, Keith made a fatal mistake.

He overestimated the power of the Bronfman money.

The authorities in the Capital Region had been completely compromised and although this protection was complete locally, it ended 100 miles below Albany.

The Bronfmans were big fish in Albany but mere carp in New York City.

They fucked around in Brooklyn and found prosecutors who weren’t big believers in self-pleasure that was based on the sacrifice of others.

So, did they cheat a little to get a conviction?

Maybe.

But in the end, did the “smartest man in the world” fuck himself?

Absolutely.

Mk10Art painting of Keith Raniere imprisoned by his own brand.

This moron had all the money in the world to put on a strong defense. He had a team of lawyers that 99% of defendants can only dream of.

If I had that kind of team, I would have walked out of court with a lawsuit and an apology.

But Keith sat there like a child hearing stories about his little, soft dick.

Any other man would have been totally embarrassed. But not Keith.

Per his orders, his lawyers presented no defense.

That’s because the fat little toad didn’t have the balls to take the stand.

Smart move there, genius. That really worked out well.

What were you so afraid of, Keith? That the world – and your dead-enders – would see the sniveling coward you always were?

Even that little punk Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old who was charged with killing two people during the 2020 Kenosha riots, took the stand in his own defense.  And by doing so, he walked.

So don’t complain now that the prosecutors might have cheated a bit.

Kind of ironic, don’t you think?

You and the Bronfmans – who fueled so much corruption – might have been done in by a little corruption.

I call that poetic justice.

  • Sara Bronfman wasn’t involved in any aspect of NXIVM other than being asked to write checks and attend classes and fuck whoever needed fucking.

    There has been no proof otherwise.

    Not an impressive bio, but that’s hers and it will likely keep her out of hot water..

  • — I dislike anyone who stayed in after this story came out. It was detailed, footnoted and well-researched.–

    But…was it read, or considered “fake news”? I’m a NXIVM outsider with no inside source, but weren’t members taught that the media is out to get Vangaurd, so members should not believe or even read anti-NXIVM press like The Times Union.

    Virtually all US media said our 2020 election was fair and honest (even Fox News sometimes lets this slip out), yet many millions still think it was stolen from Trump. The members of NXIVM were in an isolated and controlled group, so wouldn’t they ignore the pedophile piece as “fake news”?

    • You are correct in everything you typed. The ones who stayed, ignored it, or considered it fake news. This is why John pointed out that the article was “detailed, footnoted and well-researched.” I can not fathom staying in NXIVM after reading the article. And – regardless of how deep into NXIVM I was – I also can’t fathom not reading a much discussed article about Vanguard from the local newspaper.

      • I doubt the TU article was much discussed in the cult with all the flying monkeys lurking, and not reading was the easiest and most likely response by Nx-ers. Libs don’t watch Fox News and Trumpers don’t watch MSNBC.

        • The flying monkeys didn’t break spectacles or steal newspapers from driveways.

          In 2012, what would you have done if Prefect herself told you “Don’t read the front page article about Vanguard in the TU. It is all a lie and reading it will ruin your internal representation of Keith.”

          IMO, those who decided not to read the article are a different kind of stupid, and deserve to take it on the chin.

  • Thank you, John, for this excellent post. I agree with you that Raniere “would have eventually ordered his followers into a ritual of self sacrifice”. Perhaps through escalating torture, or poisoning, or a mass conflict, this was headed towards more death. I believe that you, Frank, and everyone who helped stop him should take credit for the lives saved!

    • “I believe Keith would have eventually ordered his followers into a ritual of human sacrifice.”

      The only thing about this statement I disagree with John and punakea is that you said ‘would have’, while I think it should be ‘will’. keith is possibly not done yet. I have no doubt that once he gets bored enough, he will order starvation diets on the remaining DOS slaves and starve them to death.

  • Hi John-

    Many people will love to know your opinion regarding the Rat question.

    https://frankreport.com/2022/03/03/john-tighe-the-idiots-guide-to-keith-raniere/#comment-186448

    I do understand why you’d be reluctant to share your theory. It’s not really going to change anything and may actually cause other people additional pain.
    ****

    I am fairly certain of the Rat’s veracity. I believe self-guilt, the guilt of knowing of a malevolent choreographed event, and a glass of wine led to the post.
    ***

    • I honestly don’t know who the Rat was or is. I do know Keith and the Bronfman bitches do. That’s because I had tracking software for my blog that recorded the time and IP address of all comments. Some people used sophisticated proxies, but the Rat did not. When I brought the comments to Roger Kirsopp — who I didn’t know was the head of NXIVM security — I gave him the IP address. For that, I owe the RAT an apology. I hope because of my stupid decision to trust the State Police no harm came to him. I was naive and too trusting. Again, I am truly sorry.
      Working with Jim Odato of the Times Union we did manage to tract the IP address to somewhere above Saratoga Lake

      To Alzano: I am a practicing Catholic. I was also harassed repeatedly in Church. One time, an unknown member of NXIVM sat next to me in a pew, took out and artist pad and sketched my timeline next to me. He labeled me as a suppressive with a timeline leading to death. To the people who hate the church, I understand. Churches, like all institutions ,are made up of deeply flawed and corrupt humans, kind of like our government. While the principles of the church may be sound, the members can be evil.

      Next to the admirers of Ayn Rand. Remember that Ayn Rand was a huge admirer of William Edward Hickman. A nice guy who murdered 12-year-old Marion Parker. After strangling her, he dismembered her body, stuffed rags in her abdomen and sewed her eyelids open. All for ransom. Ayn Rand wrote, and I quote: “The first thing that impresses me about the case is the ferocious rage of the whole society against one man. It is not the crime alone that has raised the fury of public hatred. It is the case of a daring challenge to society. It is the amazing picture of a man with no regard whatever for all that society holds sacred, with a consciousness all his own. She also described Hickman as “a brilliant, unusual, exceptional boy turned [by the media] into a purposeless monster.” And she wrote this: “Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should. He has the true, innate psychology of a Superman. He can never realize and feel other people.” The latter quote is almost word-for-word how she would later describe one of her most iconic character, Howard Roark in The Fountainhead. Yes, while I was in prison, I read her bullshit and hatred.

      She was an absolute atheist. Her belief system is based 100% on her hatred of all forms of religion. Hence, whatever any religion—especially Christianity and Judaism—sees as a sin, she says it must be a virtue. And whatever religion calls a virtue, she despises and hates. To her, compassion is bad, “Love thy neighbor” is a laughable perversion, greed and malice are the highest pinnacle of morality. It’s a laugh that Americans who actually call themselves “Christians” follow her. Outside of the US, she is practically unknown.

      Her racism could be brutal. She had no understanding of Native Americans. She admired our callus cruelty towards them. Writing “Americans didn’t conquer … You are a racist if you object to that. And since the Indians did not have any property rights — they didn’t have the concept of property … they didn’t have any rights to the land”.

      She was also a hypocrite. Despite arguing that government benefits constitute an immoral redistribution of wealth, she herself received Social Security payouts later in life. Ayn Rand railed against government benefits but grabbed Social Security and Medicare when she needed them. I guess despite the fact the bitch “despised government interference and felt that people should and could live independently… She didn’t feel that an individual should take help.” They’re only “parasites,” “looters” and “moochers” when their poor. She also took her welfare payments under the name of Ann O’Connor (her husband was Frank O’Connor).

      And, finally, Rand was a fanatic about the benefits of smoking. Rand was reported to insist that her student’s smoke. Rand contracted lung cancer and died of a heart attack at the ageof 75. Her healthcare was paid for by the government.

      Viva Objectivism!

      • “All for ransom. Ayn Rand wrote, and I quote: “The first thing that impresses me about the case is the ferocious rage of the whole society against one man.

Yes, while I was in prison, I read her bullshit and hatred.”

        What a morally repugnant woman to not only excuse such inexcusable behavior, but to actually attempt to rationalize it as something even remotely good. Small children are innocent — and despite what the comedy of “Home Alone” may portray — completely subjugated to adult/child power dynamic. What a deviant mind to twist the concept of a moral benevolence encapsulated in a “Superman” into its completely immoral opposite of malevolence.

        All of her books should be relegated to the dung heap and/or set aflame and her name should be forgotten.

        And it will be said: “This day We forget you, just like you forgot the meeting of this day; and your habitation is the Fire, and there is none to help you.”

      • “I hope … no harm came to him”. I’ve always felt The Rat was most likely a woman.

        Curious John, when you received the letter, can you walk us through your reaction to it and if you tried to chase down the author, or verify any of the claims? What are your thoughts on it now that nearly everything in that letter has proven to be true? It had to be shocking AF (that means As Fuck) when you first read it.

        • I was shocked and surprised. This was 2010 and I was just a small-time blogger, way out of my league. Overnight, I went from writing about dog parks and zoning issues to child rape. I called my friend, Jim Odato, at the TU. This was two years before he wrote the “Secrets of NXIVM” piece. I like to think the Rat gave him the inspiration for that story. But I could be blowing smoke out of my ass.

          He gave me Rogers Kirsopp’s name. I knew I had to go to the police and Kirsopp seemed as good as anyone. Boy was I fucking wrong. He went right to NXIVM lawyer Steve Coffey. Those two stooges are part of the reason NXIVM flourished for so long. Sometimes evil hides in uniforms and nice suits. I didn’t really understand that then, but I do now. I like to think they feel guilty for their role in this little drama, but I doubt it.

      • John-

        Thank you so much for taking the time to a answer my question. I greatly appreciate it.

        I wish you well!

      • “To Alzano: I am a practicing Catholic. I was also harassed repeatedly in Church.

        Thanks for answering. In my experience, committed anticultists usually have an ideology such as Catholicism, or Judaism, or atheism that drives their anticultism.

        As a Catholic, do you see Raniere as a false prophet who was taking people away from Jesus?

        Alanzo

        • The Catholic church and other organized religions through their actions and coverups of sex scandals have turned many people off from religion without NXIVM’s help. Remember, Keith was always small time. I doubt he ever had more than a thousand hard-core followers.

          A small stream of idiots searching for a magic bean of enlightenment. They fooled themselves into being mesmerized by believing in the bullshit of repurposed new age shaman like Keith. When they age into their sunset years, they’ll look back and see how their guiding light was ignorance. They were too cool for religion but blindly followed an idiot that claimed his mind set off radar detectors — and who was so insecure, he terrorized anyone who would dare leave.

          Funny…if he didn’t terrorize his critics, he might still be free.

          That and raping children were the two overwhelming reasons along with the fact he operated in Saratoga and hurt people I knew that I wrote about him.

          • “Funny…if he didn’t terrorize his critics, he might still be free.

            That and raping children were the two overwhelming reasons along with the fact he operated in Saratoga and hurt people I knew that I wrote about him.”

            All right, John. Thanks for answering. I have a very similar motive for writing my blog as well. Scientology destroyed many of my friends and tried to destroy me and my family. They followed me, got me fired from my job, sued clients of mine, etc. The types of things you are very familiar with.

            I’ll never stop going after them, and they know that.

            I’ve just gotten better at recognizing the perps vs the victims. The perps in Scientology are still very much at large. Some of them are even heroes now.

            I could sure use the help of someone like you to see that the perps in Scientology receive justice.

  • Hey John, I’d like to know what your personal feelings are on Kristin Kreuk. Do you believe she was conned?

    She says she left in 2013. Do you believe she did? She was there during the Necker Island trip. Have you heard anything salacious concerning her? She seems to be the only actress who left early of the many who remained longer in NXIVM. Do you think she finally saw the light, or was she just an airhead actress who got lucky she didn’t get more deeply involved?

    • IMHO Kreuk just got lucky. She had more showbiz opportunities than the other actresses that kept her away from Albany. I doubt she “saw the light” about Keith, but I also doubt she was “ravished” by Smelly like that troll Pea Onyu says — no kiss-cam pix with Keith, or even ANY pix of them together that I’ve seen.

      John clearly dislikes her, though beyond her being a hypocrite I don’t know why.

      • I think John dislikes anyone who spent a considerable amount of time in the cult. But, I think that is a general purview of his due to what HE KNEW about Raniere that others in the cult maybe did not know, a kind of guilt by association. I’m more interested in whether he personally had some actual experience with her, or something he heard from a legitimate source that formed any real negative opinion. For example, you can sense the disgust he has with Vicente because he spelled it out here in an article — Vicente was there filming John while he was pleading guilty to the child pornography charges (and some other events).

        • Yes, I dislike Kristin Kreuk. The main reason being that after the publishing of “Secrets of NXIVM” in the TU in 2012, she stayed in. I had a friend, Peter Tulin, who was a member in good standing but was a major source of mine. A general e-mail went out to members warning them about the story and telling them not to read it. My good friend Peter stayed in for the express purpose to feed me info. I can name him now because he is out of the country and out of reach. So, she was well aware of the story. It was all the talk in NXIVM land for months.

          I dislike anyone who stayed in besides Peter after this story came out. It was detailed, footnoted and well-researched. In my opinion, Kristin Kreuk was well aware that Raniere was a child rapist. She was either too stupid or afraid to call him out or leave.

          So, yes, I dislike her. I will say she is fairly attractive. But that is neither a sign of being good or evil. Just my personal opinion. I think that explains why some people still like her and make excuses for her. She also comes across as helpless and in need of saving. Like a misguided little sister. I just see her as an opportunist and a coward. Just a mediocre person and actress.

          • But don’t you think that TU article was what planted the seeds for her self-extrication from the cult? At least according to her statement, she left about a year later in 2013. Considering the litigious practices of NXIVM against those who broke away from the organization, perhaps she took the cautious approach to her removal and didn’t want to ruffle any feathers and have any harm come to herself or her finances.

            Sure, she could’ve broken ties right away, but she was also involved for five or six years in a cultic milieu along with her boyfriend at the time which formed another strong bind to it. A cultic milieu that force fed its members media distrust — especially as it came to negative information regarding the cult — and its enemies, of which you were one at the top of the list.

            Again, many members couldn’t see things from your perspective (you were also considered an enemy so the well was already poisoned) didn’t know of the immoral and decrepit things you knew from the sources you trusted. Shouldn’t she get the benefit of the doubt since she was never (at least knowingly) involved in anything illegal or unethical? She’s an actress after all. They aren’t well known for their intellectual aptitude in general.

          • Thanks, John. Since your source says Kreuk ignored Keith’s perversions, it means she ignored the danger to those she recruited for Nxivm (even indirectly as its “poster girl”) and especially for GBD. As if being a member of a reported “sex cult” wasn’t enough of a red flag.

            It also makes it more likely she was so mind-fucked that she would succumb to Vanguard’s “charms” despite supporters like Edmondson saying Kreuk never had sex with him. Or maybe “shy” Kristin was just a wallflower at the orgy on Necker

            Vanguard certainly would’ve wanted pretty Kristin in his bed, and maybe in his rumored “honey trappers.” Can your source shine any light on Kreuk’s involvement with Keith, if any?

  • I love your articles, John. Please keep them coming!

    btw – what doesn’t get mentioned enough is that keith was the world’s shittiest dresser. None of his suits fit right. Tie-dyed is always a bad idea. And who the fuck bought him that sweater? (point of clarification – I know it can be hard to tell if he is just shirtless, or actually wearing a sweater, so to be clear I’m referring to that pic with the sweater that has diamond patterns)

  • What a bunch of BS re Ayn Rand. She did not believe that “Your own pleasure was the most important goal in one’s life, Even if that means fucking children, lying, cheating, or manipulating people into self-mutilation.”

    Frank is either ignorant of Rand or lying about her.

    • Actually I did not write about Ayn Rand — John Tighe did.

      Personally, I like a lot of what Rand espoused as a writer. I do not know that she quite lived up to her ideals. But that is always hard to do.

      • Another great article, John.

        Raniere is an asshole and is where he should be: in prison for the rest of his life.

        Suneel Chakravorty wouldn’t be trying so hard to get support from Frank’s readers if what he is trying to sale was true. Instead, Raniere’s attorney would be filing his Rule 33 motion.

        We need a picture of Suneel Chakravorty with his nose up Raniere’s ass.

      • Former GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan required every potential staffer to read Ayn Rand.

        Ryan listed Rand’s magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged, as one of the three books he most frequently rereads. “I give out ‘Atlas Shrugged’ as Christmas presents, and I make all my interns read it.” Also he declared that Rand’s thinking is “sorely needed right now” because we are “living in an Ayn Rand novel” and that “Ayn Rand, more than anyone else, did a fantastic job of explaining the morality of capitalism, the morality of individualism, and this, to me, is what is matters most.”

    • Dan-

      Ayn Rand is to the alt-right what Bernie Sanders is to the radical-left. Get over Ayn who changed her name to appeal to Micks like you.

      I hate socialists, fascists, i.e., dogmatists like you; Ideologues, as yourself, want to subjugate the rest of society to your bullshit, fabricated ideals of how life should be.

      Leave America, go move to China and change your name to Phuk Mei Phace.

      P.S. I’m ☘️

  • Keith Raniere fathered a child and lied to almost the entire Nxivm community about his paternity.

    The boy grew up being labeled an “orphan”.

    Living right there with his real mother and real father. Who denied his birthright.

    That’s fucking weird and creepy. And sad.

  • John-

    Awesome wrap up on the Cult of Morons! You hit all the clowns 🤡!

    Re The Rat’s Identity:

    Do you have any guesses as to the identity of the Rat? I

    am just wondering in your own mind have you re-examined the issue and have any knew thoughts on the matter.

    My theory is that the Rat is an acquaintance of the late Barbara Jeske. The Rat’s post seemed to me to be penned by someone who’d second hand information and was trying to obfuscate their own identity.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you!

  • Thank John. I like your way with words. There was another claim that Raniere set off radar detectors when he drove. Not to forget the blue light special. Perhaps Suneel could ask Nicki to verify that….

  • TIGHE: Allison Mack Has a Right to Humane Treatment in Prison – She Isn’t Getting It

    What does Jessica Joan think of Allison Mack’s new Sorority?
    Maybe Allison can get some ideas from the masters of Sadism in the Federal government.

    • Sexual sadistic disorder:

      People with sexual sadistic disorder have either acted on the intense urge or have debilitating or distressing fantasies with sexual sadistic themes. The condition must also be present for ≥ 6 months.

      Sexual sadism is a form of paraphilia, but weak sadistic sexual behavior is a common sexual practice between adults, is usually limited, not harmful, and does not meet clinical criteria for a paraphilic disorder, which requires that a person’s behaviors, fantasies, or intense urges cause clinically significant suffering or functional impairment or harm to others. However, in some sufferers, the behaviors escalate to the point of causing harm. When sadism becomes pathological depends on the degree to which it is expressed.

      Most sexual sadists have persistent fantasies in which sexual arousal is achieved by inflicting suffering on the partner, whether he agrees or not. If sexual sadism is practiced with nonconsenting partners, it constitutes a criminal offense and is unlikely to continue beyond the sadist’s arrest. However, sexual sadism is not synonymous with rape, a complex mixture of sex and power over the victim. Sexual sadism is diagnosed in < 10% of rapists but exists in 37 to 75% of people who commit sexually motivated homicides.

      Sexual sadism is particularly dangerous when it occurs in the context of an antisocial personality disorder. This combination of disorders is particularly inaccessible to any form of psychiatric treatment.

  • “KEITH RANIERE IS A LIAR.

    And not just your average liar.

    Keith is a pathological, compulsive, and farcical liar.” John Tighe

    Let’s compare and contrast Pedophile Keith Raniere with the current occupant of the White House.
    Thank Heaven For Little Girls

  • Mr. Tighe wrote, “For reasons unknown, Keith was protected by both the police and the high and mighty in politics in Upstate NY.” That’s an easy one to figure out: MONEY. I worked for the Governor and NYS Legislature for many years and I know first-hand that EVERYONE HAD THEIR PRICE.

  • Excellent profile of the “little toad”, as you so accurately and colorfully describe him. And a great summary of the “philosophy” of the asshole Ayn Rand, whose idiotic teachings have appealed so to generations of nasty, bookish adolescent boys like Raniere.

    I disagree only with your belief that Raniere might have ended up a killer. I think he was too much a physical coward to go that route. He’s the kind of sniveling little creep that only talks tough to women. He lacked, as you say, the balls.

  • Great perspective and good timing. As Suneel attempts to only have us focus on a couple points, the entirety of Raniere is “What Is”.

    Thank you for sharing your hypothesis on Keith’s endgame. I’m on board. Chilling, but fits right in as a progression to his pattern. And not at all over-the-top when considering he’d already implemented his step-by-step plan to have someone commit suicide.

    The kissing pix are straight out of that Frends episode. Poor Vicente. WTF

    “Of course, I reject Objectivism – I’m too theistic, too classical, and too religious for that bullshit.”

    Could I ask what theistic religion or ideology you follow that makes you reject Objectivism?

    Are you Christian? Jewish?

    Alanzo

    • John. Don’t answer this clown PLEASE. That’s a very personal question.

      Meanwhile Alanzo still refuses to explain why he had, “personal interactions” with Neil Glazer (as he previously posted).

      Thanks!

      • Tell you what, Anonymous Fucktard

        I’ll answer the “personal interactions” question – for real – if John answers mine – for real.

        Alanzo

        • Allen-

          Nobody cares enough about your answer, I know John doesn’t, because he hates you cultist dipshits…..

          Besides we all know whatever your answer is, it’ll be pathetic, just like you. 😉

        • Just answer the question. Please. You are the one who brought it up, Alanzo.

          John owes you nothing. Claviger owes you nothing.

          You consistently demand all kinds of answers to all types of questions from all different people on this blog. Often of a personal nature.

          Why did you have “Personal interactions” with Neil Glazer?

          You wanted Frank Report readers to know about it. Or you wouldn’t have stated it.

          And there is no need to be rude or play games when someone takes an honest interest in something that you CHOSE to write.

          Thank you.

          • He already told us. But he never finished the story. What happened, Alonzo??? Did you toss the bra onstage, give it back to the stacked chick, or take it home to treasure?

          • John Tighe has thoroughly answered my question.

            I’ll be answering yours, Cowardly Anonymous Fucktard, soon enough.

            Alanzo

          • This blog post has a featured picture which says “IMAGE MISSING”.

            https://alanzosblog.com/ethnocentrism-consent-and-nxivms-secret-sorority-called-dos/

            That’s because I took a screen shot from Sara Edmonson’s branding video, which I obtained from a Mexican News Network account on Twitter, and originally had it as the featured pic of that post.

            I received a communication from Neil Glazer explaining that he has been successful at asking every single news service, blogger and news publication to take down any images from that video because they are upsetting to his client. He was not threatening to me in any way, and it was clear he was guided by a sincere desire to advocate for his client.

            I told him that Sara Edmonson has been to the NY Times, written a book, and runs a podcast devoted to her branding – actually has built a career on it. I will take it down but I continue to reserve the right to write about Sarah Edmonson’s branding video any time I wish, and publish anything I want about her branding video any time I wish.

            He thanked me.

            As I wrote originally, like a lot of the people I’ve had personal interactions with in both NXIVM and Anti-NXIVM, I found him to be professional, genuine and sincere.

          • The brassiere/concert version was better…
            I think I’m going to miss anon hounding you about this

          • That ain’t happening! Tonight, Alonzo will be too busy making love to 1/2 dozen boxes of RingDings®️.

            His blood 🩸 sugar will put him in a 24hr coma.

    • Anyone with a modicum of reading comprehension and who actually read his 4-5 part “my story” knows Tighe’s faith.

  • Excellent prospective of KAR’s value to the world. Also puts into perspective how the sisters avoided the brand and membership as first line masters. Would really like to have a similar piece on the husbands’ and wives’ marriages while in KAR’s grasp and interest. Also, the value, function and interpersonal relationships of the males in the SOP.

    I think the sycophantic resided and can also be exposed there may be equal in horrific acts to the exploitation of the little girls.

    How KAR never got assaulted amazes me. Somebody’s dad, brother, aunt, uncle should of beat his ass at a minimum. Amazing never happened. Guess even evil men can get lucky.

    ChoMo’s in prison are not supposed to sleep well. Guess the BOP protects them decently.

    Look forward to reading more. Glad you’re out and healthy Sir.

    • John, you wrote, “For reasons unknown, Keith was protected by both the police and the high and mighty in politics in Upstate NY.”

      The logical reason is Bronfman money, and for a sex-cult another logical reason would be sex and bribery. Do you have any supported suspicions it was one of these, or is there a third possibility?

      Corrupted government offiicals are more disgusting than even a smelly guru.
