Unseen Photos of $10K/Week Mexican Villa & Video of Raniere’s Arrest

Keith Raniere captured in Mexico on March 25, 2018

In a previous post, Unseen Photos of the World – Now Gone – of NXIVM #1, I mentioned that I had pictures that I never got around to publishing for one reason or another. I recently rediscovered a treasure trove of these in a file and on my phone.

The pictures below are of the last home Keith Raniere stayed in before losing his freedom. The house is in Chacala, a small fishing village about an hour and a half from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

He and some of his followers stayed in this home or, as described, a villa, which was an Airbnb rental – located in a gated community and, as you can see, on the ocean.

The Fateful Day

On March 25, 2018. Raniere woke up from a nap feeling unwell. He asked Lauren if she would bring him food. She went to the kitchen and brought back food to his suite.

She went back to the kitchen to make herself a smoothie when Loreta came running into the kitchen and said, “The police are at the door. They’re here for Keith.”


Here are some pictures of the seaside villa where Keith Raniere spent his last hours of freedom.

The villa where Keith enjoyed his last day of freedom.

Lauren ran back to Keith’s suite and tried to persuade him to go out the window.

He told her to call Jack, but she didn’t have a phone with her, and she didn’t know how to use Keith’s phone.

Lauren closed the doors and the blinds. She saw outside one of the windows what appeared to be federal police with machine guns and bulletproof vests, some wearing masks, surrounding the property.

Daniella, Allison, and Nicki were sitting across on a patio. The men searched the property until the only place they couldn’t search was the room Keith and Lauren were in.

They came to the door and banged on it. There was a walk-in closet. Keith went into it.

Lauren went to the door and asked the men if they had a warrant.

They said, “Open the door, and we’ll show it to you.”

Lauren said, “If you show it to me, I’ll open the door.”

They went back and forth a few times and asked if anyone else was with her and if they had weapons. Then they kicked down the door and held her on the floor with four machine guns pointed at her.

They asked her, “Is there anybody else here with you? Are you alone? Who else is here”?

Lauren did not answer them. They became aggressive. She thought they were going to kick her.

She called out Keith’s name, and at the same time, in the room that he was in the walk-in, there was a door on the other side, and they were kicking down the door on that side.

She called out his name, and he came out of the room. They put him on the floor, handcuffed him, and then they let him stand up, and showed him a piece of paper.

Keith called out to Lauren what the allegations were, that they were out of the US DOJ, the Eastern District of New York, that he was being accused of sex trafficking.

Then they took him.

Ironies of ironies. He had just moved into a luxurious villa, had been there only a day or less, and once they had him, he never saw freedom again. Within hours, he was transported to Fort Worth, Texas, where FBI agents awaited him with an arrest warrant. He was arraigned in Texas and transferred to Brooklyn. He was not granted bail and spent more than a year at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn awaiting trial.

On June 19, 2019, he was convicted after a six-week trial and spent more than a year waiting for sentencing.  Sentenced to 120 years, he was assigned to the United States Penitentiary in Tucson, AZ.

It has been almost four years since that fateful day when Mexican police came to arrest him, and he has been in a prison cell every moment since then.

Raniere was apprehended in Mexico, outside the jurisdiction of the EDNY.


Keith Raniere was led away in handcuffs in Mexico on March 25, 2018.

His followers say he was not legally arrested but was taken in violation of Mexican law, and in effect, he was kidnapped, not arrested. They suspect that the men who showed up were not federal police but bounty hunters retained by the FBI.

Finally, here is a short YouTube video of Raniere’s arrest on that fateful day when the grandmaster of one hundred DOS slaves became a slave to the US government.

Remarks on this video: Chacala, Mexico; March 25, 2018. Keith Raniere is arrested by what appears to be Mexican federal police. The film is from the phone of Nicki Clyne. The woman speaking in Spanish is Loreta Garza. Allison Mack is seen bewildered and frightened as another woman speaks of following the police. Within a month, Mack would be arrested in Brooklyn. Raniere and his female followers had just moved into this oceanfront Airbnb villa in a gated community, reportedly at a cost of $10,000 per week. They got less than a day there — and Raniere his last day of freedom.

  • No matter how many more stupid articles Suneel 👽🤡🕺 writes and the Discard DOS Dolls ® 🤡👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ tweet, Keith “Fartguard” Raniere is never getting out of prison.


    P.S. All those yet to be filed legal motions won’t make any difference either. 💰👨‍⚖️💩

    P.P.S. Nor psuedo-coherent ramblings from the morbidly obese. 🍩🤡🤤

  • The problem with all the bullshit in this worthless article, Ginzo, is we all want to talk about niggers!

    We want to talk about the bigger problem in this country! We understand that those taco niggers arrested a demented kosher nigger! Keith is just a typical kike! That’s how a kike always is!

    This should spark a more serious conversation, the nigger problem *IN THIS COUNTRY*! *NOT* a nigger problem in another country that *INHABITS* niggers! Taco niggers to be exact!

    Now let’s talk about the niggers in this country, Frank! That’s what we’re all concerned about!

    ✊🏻 IF WE BELIEVE ✊🏻


    • Patriot God-

      Ur on fire! Take back the Frank Report from that swarthy, heathen ‘mulato’.

      God bless America!

      Hail Patriot God!

    • When my mother was a nurse at Cook County Jail in the early 1950s, she worked in the Cook County Jail’s Psych Ward.
      (Cook County Jail has its own branch of Cook County Hospital.)

      The Psych Ward is the craziest part of Cook County Hospital.
      This was before the explosion of so-called recreational drugs in American society.

      Institutionalized: Mental Health Behind Bars

    • The “Psych Ward” is likely Cook County Jail’s equivalent of “Suicide Watch” in federal prison. And putting high-profile inmates in such places when they are first incarcerated is pretty standard procedure these days (As I recall,Keith Raniere spent some time on Suicide Watch while he was incarcerated at MDC.

      • What’a you think wearing a prison suicide paper gown or a suicide prison smock is like? (Rhetorical question)

    • Jussie Smollet in prison is like Steven Tyler being snowed in at the Victoria secret fashion show. He’s going to have the time of his life while being passed around like covid.

    • Now that’s what I’m talking about! That nigger is just showing how big of a nigger he was all along!

      But he’s not racist is he?! Right, Ginzo?!

        • I think he deserves a week in prison. Real criminals should be in prison, not a little douche-bag.

          Save the space for murderers and rapists.

  • Stories from the Oxenberg family.

    The chaotic childhood of India Oxenberg’s great grandfather, Paul of Serbia.

    christinaoxenberg’s profile picture
    When the kid was born, his father was signed up for a foreign War, gone never to return.
    The kid, a boy, was born in St Petersburg, Russia in April of 1893 to a mother who wanted nothing of him.
    This woman, a princess, she had youth, wealth, privileges and good looks, but her heart was not full, and she wanted more. From the windows of her palace in St Petersburg, she might have cried into her Belgian lace gloves; she wanted love.
    The first year and a half the kid was on Earth, his mother presented him to relatives beseechingly begging them to take the child, but no one would accommodate her.
    A coup de foudre and she remembered Peter, a cousin on the bloodline of her estranged husband. She tracked down Peter and penned an inky letter. She asked him to take her child.
    Peter, a widow, lived in Switzerland. He replied to the unhappy Russian princess that yes, he would take in the child.
    The child did not live with his mother again; nor did he live in St Petersburg again, nor even the country of his birth, Russia.
    At the age of two and accompanied by his Russian nanny, he traveled by train to Switzerland. Peter lived with his three children who were much older than the Russian boy. They spoke no Russian, and the boy and his nanny spoke only Russian.
    At the age of four, his nanny was dispatched to Russia never to be seen again — and at the same time, he was placed in boarding school where he learned French and German. He hated the rats that ran riot at night at the school.
    Twice during this Swiss alpine existence, the boy’s mother made arrangements to say hello. Literally, just hello. Literally, only twice. She was never seen again by him. News is the lady remarried, had children.
    Aged ten he was packed up with the luggage and moved with Peter, and Peter’s kids, to Serbia.
    At the age of ten, now in Serbia, the boy was handed a set of pistols and a dagger for his belt sash. Here, he would learn Serbian.
    Life was immensely formal in a military barracks, uniforms worn at all times.
    British diplomats pitched up, so the kid, now a young teen, learned English from these visiting diplomats aka spies on their way to Cairo.
    The kid is my grandfather, Paul of Serbia.


  • Karma is what goes around comes around and that’s a universal truth. Just because Keith wants to feel he is above it, doesn’t mean he actually is.

  • $10,000 dollars per week!

    How much will it be after World War III starts?

    World War III Just Got A Lot Closer: Russia Announces Plan to Bomb NATO Convoys Entering Ukraine —Emergency Broadcast!
    March 13th 2022, 9:00 am
    For once, Joe Biden is telling the truth and warning the world that we are on the edge of “nuclear World War III” but left-wing and right-wing chicken hawks in the US, UK, and EU are demanding more heavy weapons be sent to expanding black hole.

    “Weird Al” Yankovic – Christmas At Ground Zero

    • Shadowstate1958-

      I’m in agreement with you for once.

      What the politicians aren’t explaining is that if we send planes to the Ukrainians we’ll be supplying the pilots too. We easily could be looking at World War III. Normally, I’m pro war, but not this time.

      Side Note.
      It’s clear by what’s going on that if Russia didn’t have nukes, we could just go in there and kick Russia’s ass.

      That’s why we must make sure Iran never gets nukes.

  • Frank-
    I enjoyed this piece immensely.!

    The Frank Report’s first short film is a masterpiece! The soundtrack is definitely worthy of an Oscar nomination.

    I’m still LMAO!
