India Oxenberg to Move to Key West with New Husband, Will Celebrate Wedding in Conn.

India Oxenberg, 30, and Patrick D’Ignazio, 31, eloped on December 3, 2020. They married in Los Angeles before no one except their officiant, a notary public named Marilyn Townsend.

“It was basically a courthouse wedding, but in a backyard,” Oxenberg told the New York Times. “The most important thing to me was signing the papers and making it official and not having to coordinate with multiple family members.”

Her husband, D’Ignazio, lives in Key West, is a chef, and plans to open a restaurant on the four-mile-long, two-mile-wide island, the southernmost part of continental USA.

The city has nearly 400 restaurants planted on its 400,000 square feet to serve its year-round population of 22,000, making it relatively restaurant dense. But Key West gets more tourists than locals – one million come each year. It seems every good restaurant does very well. It’s a culinary capital, especially for seafood which comes in daily fresh.

Oxenberg, who lives in Los Angeles, will join Patrick in Key West.

At the southernmost point of the United States are the Florida Keys, a string of small islands accessible by a concrete causeway.

The most populous of these remote coral islands is Key West, at the southernmost point in the USA.

Reported Upcoming Nuptials in 2019

Frank Report reported news of their planned nuptials: India Oxenberg to Wed Chef She Met While Working at Vegan Restaurant When Still in Nxivm – the Inside Story  when India, then-28, announced it on Instagram on October 18, 2019.

India Oxenberg Worked at Vegan Restaurant

India, while working for Plant Made.

Back in 2018, before Raniere was arrested, India moved to Brooklyn with Allison Mack and took a job as a manager at Plant Made in NYC – a vegan eatery.

Raniere scampered off to Mexico, and Allison rushed down to meet him.

India remained and worked at Plant Made at modest wages and spent time with non-Nxians.

Her coworkers weren’t on readiness drills. They weren’t branded. They did not have masters or grandmasters. They could eat what they wanted. They slept as they wished.  They could date and even marry. Some were married, and their husbands did not keep a harem.

While India was struggling to make enough money to pay her bills, Raniere, Mack, and other First Line Masters were in a $10,000 per week oceanside villa in Mexico preparing for a group blow job for Raniere.

They called it a recommitment ceremony.

Mexican villa they stayed 

 

Keith was 2,700 miles away, getting his member readied for what was expected to be a most energizing ceremony.

MK10 ART’s depiction of the recommitment ceremony planned for his slaves. Keith Raniere wanted his slaves like Allison and Lauren Salzman to put their recommitment where their mouth is.

As readers know, Raniere never got his slaves to perform their group duty. Just as he was moistening his glands and the hour was growing nigh, some rude men came to the door of the $10,000 per week villa with sub-machine guns and pounded on the door.

Raniere ran and hid in a closet.  Lauren Salzman answered the door. She tried to deter them.

But when they, with their rough and hasty ways, knocked her to the floor, stuck a submachine gun in her face, and said it she did not tell them where Raniere was, the submachine gun would ejaculate right in her mouth and blow her brains out.

Please think of the irony: instead of placing her mouth on what she felt was his warm and tender, primarily flaccid member, they stuck a cold hard barrel of a machine gun in her mouth. Lauren gave away his hiding spot.

“He’s in the closet,” she said.

The sad upshot is the men with the guns were in a hurry. They insisted on Raniere accompanying them. Before the ladies could convene and offer their winsome group farewell dedication, he left.

Raniere was captured in Mexico on March 25, 2018. Sadly, the inspirational recommitment event never occurred since Raniere was suddenly apprehended.

Allison came back to Brooklyn, and India lived with her.

It must have been an eye-opener for India when Allison was arrested in her Brooklyn apartment on April 20th – at about 6 am – handcuffed and led away. But for the efforts of India’s mother, India might have been handcuffed along with Allison.

Mack was named in the arrest affidavit as co-conspirator #1. India was co-conspirator #2. India had allegedly been involved in the attempted sex trafficking of DOS slave Jessica Joan, India’s slave.

India with Jessica Joan, her former slave.

Then three months later, Clare Bronfman was arrested.

India stuck with her master and grandmaster for a time, but, in Brooklyn, she met Patrick.

A romance was sparked – passion grew – and despite her vow of lifelong obedience to Mack and Raniere – they were not around to order her not ever to touch a man the rest of her life other than grandmaster Raniere.

Patrick was in proximity. He was charming. He was kind and romantic. He was courteous, intelligent, strong. He did not seek a group blow job.

The fact that Catherine made national news trying to get her daughter out of NXIVM – getting millions to sympathize with her, likely saved India from arrest.

India left NXIVM, I suspect, for several reasons:

  1. Her mother’s efforts to get her out.
  2. The efforts of her grandmother, Princess Elizabeth, who kept the family relationship intact so that India would have some non NXIVM relations. India was not talking to her mother when Catherine publicized India’s NXIVM involvement.
  3. The cult imploding after Catherine gave Frank Report the DOS branding story.
  4. Raniere’s and Mack’s arrest.
  5. Finding a boyfriend – Patrick
  6. Contact with people other than NXIVM members.
  7. The chance at being indicted and hauled off to prison herself for Raniere and Mack.

Patrick and India Plan September Ceremony

 

India, family friend Stanley Zareff, and Catherine Oxenberg, outside the federal courthouse during the trial of Keith Raniere. India got to attend the trial and not be a defendant there, but it could have been far different. 

So fast forward a couple of years. India helped produce and appeared in Seduced – on Starz TV.  She wed in December 2020.

Now the couple plan to publicly celebrate their wedding this summer, about a year and a half after they legally wed.

Patrick wanted a big wedding with guests.

India said, “Patrick has really been the one to show me the importance of this ceremony. Our families have never met. They’ve only talked briefly on the phone.”

“I have a lot of friends and family who wanted to come to a wedding,” Patrick said.

The couple expects between 100 and 150 guests to attend their ceremony on September 3dr at Patrick’s parent’s vacation home in Groton Long Point, Conn. It will include a ceremony led by one of D’Ignazio’s close friends.

Though it represents a commitment – as all wedding ceremonies do – it will not be the kind of recommitment ceremony Raniere had in mind.

Frank Report has learned Raniere won’t be attending. He has a different kind of commitment and will be in Tucson in September and, regretfully, unable to break away.

MK10ART’s painting of Keith Alan Raniere, where he presently resides.

Mack and Bronfman also have conflicts and will not attend. Mack is spending the month of September in Dublin, CA., and Clare Bronfman has a previous commitment in Philadelphia.

Viva Executive Success!

  • If the groom’s parents have a vacation place in Groton Long Point, he’s not just some Brooklyn pizza chef, but likely from at least a somewhat privileged background, more like her. Maybe that will work out well for them, hopefully better than her mother’s choice in men at that age.

    • Ironically he is a pizza chef:

      “D’Ignazio is currently a chef at Matthew Kenney’s Double Zero, a plant-based pizza spot that specializes in organic and sustainable food sources.”

      Double Zero is a chain pizza restaurant with nine locations so far. I’d guess Key West is going to get one now. Vegan pizza- yuk!

      Given real estate prices in Key West and the stiff competition among eateries there and the limited appeal of vegan food 🤮 I give this venture six months. Less, if another COVID spike hits.

  • Patrick D’Ignazio cant find a woman who isn’t a Discarded DOS Doll branded with the hairy, smelly one’s initials?!

    Does she make him kiss the brand before his lips go anywhere else?

    What a pitiful beta boy.

    😂🤣😂

  • Re Cult/Brainwashing Debate:

    I sincerely appreciate everyone’s input.

    I am going to further refine my cult definition/outline.

    Seriously, thanks Aristotle and all anonymous commenters!

  • Re Cult/Brainwashing/Indoctrination Debate:

    None of the individuals who showed up to debate me have addressed the
    the cult outline/blueprint that describes all cult organizations.

    Instead, all of you have brought up things I didn’t even say.
    *****
    \\\\\\\\\
    My cult outline/blueprint is applicable to every group that has been labeled a cult.

    Name a cult that does not fit my criteria.

    Cults all practice the same bull shit.
    ///////////////////////

    • “ Cult Tactics:
      • Love bombing
      • Thought reform
      • THEY ISOLATE YOU
      • Induced dependency
      • Impenetrable logic
      • REINFORCE WITH RITUAL
      • The leader may punish doubt or insubordination with physical or emotional trauma, exactly like DOS or Sea Org.
      • Bootcamp like structure
      • Psychological/Enlightenment — offering expensive “enlightenment” workshops;
      • THEY TAP INTO YOUR WEAKNESSES
      • THEY PROVIDE HOPE AND SOLUTIONS
      Lastly:
      What ultimately sells a person on the idea of being part of a cult is the notion that they have been uniquely chosen for a cause, that they are part of an important revolution.”

      “Name a cult that does not fit my criteria”

      I already did. The suburban Chicago cult The Seekers that was the basis of Leon Festinger’s classic study When Prophecy Fails.

      No love bombing.

      No “thought reform” (whatever that’s supposed to be)

      They didn’t isolate anyone.

      They didn’t make anyone dependent.

      Their logic wasn’t impenetrable at all. Their premise was wrong (belief in extraterrestrials and imminent end of the earth)

      They had no rituals. Other than standing on the back porch and waiting for the flying saucers.

      There was no punishment or brutal leader. The head of the cult was a little old lady in the suburbs.

      Therefore it resembled boot camp not one bit.

      There was a kind of promised enlightenment in that they and only they knew the “truth”. One out of twelve so far. There were no workshops however, expensive or otherwise. Call it 1/3 of one out of twelve.

      The Seekers were undeniably a cult, a millennial cult to be specific. It had a leader, a guru, it had its wacky beliefs and its devoted followers, many of whom clung on for years. Their cult behavior provided the very definition of cognitive dissonance.

      It fits almost none of your criteria for a cult blueprint.

      • Where is the information on the Chicago cult The Seekers?

        There’s limited information on the net provide a link please!

    • Anonymous 5:19,

      No where in my post do I mention cult leaders being narcissistic.

      I said, “the leader may punish doubt or insubordination with physical or emotional trauma.”

      Thanks for your input.

  • It is their choice, although had she not been in the cult, I would have said it was a bit unkind to leave out family. One of my children married in the UK when the total covid wedding ban was lifted (our longest ban for Catholics since the 1500s) and by law was only allowed 13 guests and no food, etc. but even so, she did manage to invite the main family members within the 13 chosen ones. Sneaking off just the two of them sounds a bit uncaring of parents, grandparents etc.

    • Re Comment Deletion:

      Allison Mack’s family or friends follow the Frank Report and most likely saw the posts made by Shadowstate1958.

  • There’s no such thing as brainwashing. The term was invented by a journalist, Edward Hunter, during the Cold War, to “explain” the spread of Communism.
    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/true-story-brainwashing-and-how-it-shaped-america-180963400/

    “Brainwashing” is pure pseudoscience, but the term is still in use today to explain why people do stupid things.
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nationalreview.com/2019/06/brainwashing-myth-literary-cinematic-device/amp/

    People can be convinced to do stupid things and join stupid causes, some more easily enticed than others. And of course people can be manipulated and fooled and pressured, again some more easily than others. But the idea that people can be mind-whammied via nefarious techniques, made to act against their will, is pure fiction.

    As for your second point, cults are not impossible but rather slippery to define. Like pornography, “you know it when you see it.” Your 12 point checklist by no means applies to all cults. For example the “Seekers” UFO cult in suburban Chicago documented in When Prophecy Fails did not do any love bombing, they did not have any rituals, didn’t isolate members, had no boot-camp rigor, etc. It was just a loopy lady who attracted followers with her apocalyptic “visions”. But it was still obviously a cult.

    Religions are cults. Star Wars fandom is a cult. Most cults are relatively benign although the two I just listed can carry people down the rabbit hole.

    People have an irrational side and we all like to club together in groups. It can be very pleasant to kinda obsess over something silly. Get together, wear team jerseys and yell. Go to church and recite nonsense from a book of myths to some invisible friend in the sky. Wear black and get deafened by extremely amplified guitars played by “musicians” dressed in leather wearing inverted crosses. All cults all mostly harmless.

    There’s a reason cults aren’t illegal.

    And then there are cults like Nxivm. The Branch Davidiens. The Sarah Lawrence cult so recently in the news. One thing they have in common is you’ve got to be an idiot to join them.

    Problem really isn’t that there are cults. There have always been cults. The problem is there are too many gullible idiots. And there’s probably not much we can do about that. Other than not being one.

    • When you start categorizing practically every social grouping as a cult, that’s when the term loses all its meaning.

      The point of language is to name things so communication is possible. Words refer to concepts which are delineated into categories — many of them clear cut, some of them a little bit more vague. But these categories have obvious boundaries, otherwise they couldn’t be classified as such.

      This comment wasn’t very Aristotelian of you. In fact, it is somewhat NXIVM-ish and contradictory of you. It’s actually similar to one of the ways NXIVM attempted to wash away its cult label.

      • Except I didn’t categorize nearly every social grouping as a cult.

        Religions are cults. That’s where the term ‘cult’ originated. As in the Cult of Dionysus etc.

        Tell me that people rolling in the aisles, speaking in tongues isn’t a cult.

        Tell me that Trekkies learning to speak ‘Klingon’ to each other isn’t a cult. You do know that the word ‘fan’ is a contraction of ‘fanatic’, right?

        My post pointed out that there are different kinds of cults. It’s important to categorize things properly if we are to understand them. The term ‘cult’ is often used purely pejoratively today but it’s important to understand its broader meaning.

        Like it or not, ‘cult’ is a broad category. To reiterate a point, that’s why we can’t just make cults illegal.

        • You basically categorized every social group as a cult. Saying religions (which is and implicit all) are cults means that you automatically categorized 85% of the world’s population as cultists. That means the other 15% would be either non-religious (still believing in a religion but following it only nominally) or irreligious and that subdivision can then be made up of any social group that doesn’t have to do with religion per se, like NXIVM, or sports fandom, or the “cult” of celebrity, or the “cult” of new atheism, etc.

          The fact of the matter is, the way you used the term practically entails that you have to define what is NOT a cult when it comes to social groupings.

          • Religions and fandoms are not “every social group”.

            Most people are not particularly religious and most people definitely are not cosplaying Trekkie types.

            And most cults are benign.

            That does not let cults like Nxivm off the hook. It does not excuse what they did, or ‘normalize’ their criminality.

            I know some people object to the idea that THEIR religion can be called a cult. Okay. But religions have rituals, a hierarchy, there’s punishment for leaving (family disapproval, community ostracism, burning in Hell for eternity, etc.) As I pointed out before, the term ‘cult’ was coined to describe early religions.

    • Aristotle-

      You didn’t address the outline of cult indoctrination/brainwashing.
      ****
      Brainwashing is a colloquial for indoctrination. A half baked idea isn’t actually baked, clearly brainwashing is not real.

      You didn’t address my statement or outline, but you definitely did a better job of refutation than Jabalonzo.

      • Read the first half of my original post. The post that begins, “There’s no such thing as brainwashing. The term was invented by a journalist…”

    • You didn’t address my outline of indoctrination/cults…..

      Instead all you did was deflect and bring up topics I didn’t mention.

      If cults and brainwashing(indoctrination) doesn’t exist than why does my outline apply to all of them?

  • Good for India. Growing towards marriage, family and career. Meanwhile, Nicki Clyne has taken to tik toc dancing and taking jumping pics of herself at the local mall. 🤣

    • Unlike the actresses who were the three “stooges” of NXIVM: Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne, and Kristin Kreuk.

      Even Sarah settled down with her fellow cult member, Nippy.

      AM and NC were sister wives of the smelly one, and then Kreuk dumped her “boyfriend” Hildreth (who was a beard anyway) and is apparently still single.

      • — Kreuk dumped her “boyfriend” Hildreth (who was a beard anyway) —

        Are you saying Hildreth was a beard for (gay) Kreuk, or that Kreuk was a beard for (gay) Hildreth? Or both for both?

      • “and is apparently still single”

        No, she’s not. She lives with and is fucking some guy named Eric Putzer who she shares a home with in Toronto and who she met on the set of “Beauty and the Beast” and was a writer on her show “Burden of Truth“.

  • I thought that KAR’s position has always been that prior to being “delivered” to US law enforcement at the border, he was kidnapped by the Policia en Los Estados Unitos Mexicanos. Did he/The Bronfmans ever file suit against Mexico for this “unlawful” apprehension?

  • To Everyone:

    RE A Challenge to Cult Brainwashing Deniers:
    If Brain washing doesn’t exist and cults are undefinable, then why do

    ***

    I’ve posted similar challenge before, and no one has yet come to forward……

    • Nearly 24hrs and not a peep from the no such thing as cult or brainwash denier clan…..

      …..What a bunch of useless tool bags you’re all.

    • What you are describing is the m.o. of a pathological narcissist (a real personality disorder, not just the throw-away ‘he/she’s a narcissist’). There are umpteenth small groups who follow a charismatic leader (yes, narcissists can be charismatic) which have the same m.o. You may even know some in your family/circle of friends/at work to a lesser extent. Whether it becomes a ‘cult’ or not depends on the overall ambitions of the ‘leader’. When you say “What ultimately sells a person on the idea of being part of a cult is the notion that they have been uniquely chosen for a cause, that they are part of an important revolution.”, isn’t that what political parties of all shades are doing? They also provide ‘hope and solution’, etc. You only have to read the rabid Anti-Trump/anti-Clinton/anti-Obamas, etc to see the cult-like devotion of their respective followers who resist all attempts at ‘common logic’. Sure, there is less (visible) coercion of the lower ranks of the faithful (the equivalent of KR’s outer circle), but it would not be beyond belief that some of the higher rank (the equivalent of KR’s inner circle) are kept ‘in line’ through blackmail/collateral. So can political parties be deemed to be ‘cults’? There are only tiny degrees of difference.

      • Anonymous 1:58,

        Read what I wrote!

        My cult/indoctrination outline fits all cults.

        I never mention anything about narcissist cult leaders whatsoever.

        All I said was cult leaders punish members with psychological or physical punishment.

        Like Aristotle, you put words in my mouth.

      It is indeed the grimmest institution in Chicago.

  • RE:

    #Deprogrammed
    LIVE Deprogrammed – with Nicki Clyne & Brian Edward

    Current 74 viewers Active livestream for 77 minutes

    Looks like the video is not attracting very many viewers. So Nicki isn’t bringing in the viewership numbers as hoped. Nicki’s cult offensive has failed, no one wants to side with an obviously deluded loser. Nicki can no longer count on much sympathy. Time is now playing against her.

    • Re “Nicki Clyne now lives in Florida.
      Perhaps she can attend the ceremony.”

      I suspect that if Nicki shows up at the wedding, she will be an unwanted and uninvited guest. She will be turned away and prevented from entering the property. Otherwise, it is trespassing. In the event that Nicki decides to disrupt someone else’s wedding, she should know that she will be reported and taken away by the police.
