Kevin Doesn’t Like Two People; Defends Allison, Nicki and Danielle

Sarah Edmondson with Mark Vicente

Neil Glazer dropped Nancy and Lauren Salzman as defendants in his NXIVM lawsuit.

Nancy was the president of NXIVM. Lauren was one of DOS’ first-line slave masters and director of education for NXIVM.

Kevin, who worked on the set of Smallville, knew Allison Mack.

He considers himself her friend. He is not a fan of two of the plaintiffs in the Glazer lawsuit who are suing Mack — Sarah Edmondson and Mark Vicente.

These two were NXIVM whistleblowers. They were also the heads of the Vancouver and Los Angeles NXIVM centers.

Aristotle’s Sausage and Kevin have a feud in progress. Aristotle thinks Kevin is wrong on almost every point. Kevin is not shy about hitting back. However, his defense of Mack, Nicki Clyne, Danielle Roberts, and others is unpopular.

By Kevin

So the two lead plaintiffs who owned, operated, managed, directed, recruited for and handsomely profited from the largest NXIVM centers in North America removed Nancy Salzman, the president of the company, and her daughter Lauren Salzman, the second-in-command, from their lawsuit, but are still suing rank and file, dues-paying members who had no authority in the organization and never made money from it.

Sarah Edmondson Mark Vicente on couch

Sarah Edmondson with Mark Vicente are suing NXIVM defendants Clare Bronfman, Sara Bronfman, Keith Raniere, Allison Mack, Nicki Clyne, Danielle Roberts and Brandon Porter. They were suing Nancy and Lauren Salzman, but decided to drop their claims against them.  

Danielle Roberts, a defendant in the NXIVM lawsuit, does a hand stand. She came to fame and lost he medical license after Frank Report revealed she branded Kieth Raniere’s initials on the pubic areas of DOS slaves. She was a DOS slave herself, under Allison Mack.

Danielle Roberts is a yoga enthusiast.

Edmondson, the lead defendant, recruited Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne into NXIVM.

Yeah, there’s nothing about this that stinks at all.

So knowing that Allison had nothing to do with child exploitation, whether real or manufactured, and knowing that one of the hit pieces targeting her has been exposed as “show biz,” Dublin prison’s response is to tighten her shackles and make her suffer some more?

Sure, why not?

Nancy Salzman, president of NXIVM, with her daughter Lauren Salzman. Nancy is currently in prison, and Lauren is on probation for their roles in NXIVM and DOS.

This, while the company president is removed from the civil suit. This is because the lead plaintiff, Edmondson, who herself was an executive in the organization, is friends with the president’s daughter, Lauren.

You know Lauren, the one accused of imprisoning an underage girl in a room for two years.

Lauren oversaw Daniela’s confinement in this room for 22 months.

But Allison and two rank and file members are still targets, meaning this lawsuit is based on who is friends with who, and who isn’t, and not on what people actually did or what their roles were.

Did the other plaintiffs agree to this? Did they even have a say?

Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne were under Sarah Edmondson in NXIVM but had higher rank in DOS.

This is why you don’t break bread with carnys. Because they’re really, really carny, and can’t help themselves.

 A Word to Sausage

Artist’s watercolor of Aristotle’s Sausage entitled “Sausage In Thought.”

So Aristotle. I hope you weren’t bothered too much by my comment about you{ “Aristotle smells funny.” I put quotes around it as part of a broader point I was making, which is that an opinion is not libelous. I was not suggesting you have any issues with showering and keeping yourself clean down there.

You’re right, you said I know very little about libel law. My specialty is Government Acquisition, so please forgive me for not knowing the appropriate codes and statutes pertaining to slander and defamation.

I think my point is right, and it makes sense.

If the Seduced filmmakers were caught in a lie, and one they had to work hard to manufacture, all to smear a man, Marc Elliot, who isn’t even a subject in the movie being made, that it calls into question everything else we see and hear from these filmmakers.

You know how I feel about Sarah and Mark Vicente. What’s funny is that you feel the same way, based on the comments you’ve made.

I Am Who I Am

I use my real name. I will not volunteer my last name, or any other information other than what I’ve already provided. This is far more than 99.9% of the people who comment on this blog.

The people I’ve written to outside this site are welcome to ask any questions they want about anything, at any time, and I will provide them with that information. I will not disclose that information to people here.

What’s My Position?

I’ve made my position clear.

I don’t want Allison or the women who associated with her to be harmed, smeared or tormented just because they have opinions about this situation that are unpopular. They don’t deserve that. Neither does Marc Elliot.

They deserve friendship, kindness, compassion and community. I hope they find it. And the same holds true for the people on the other side of the fence, as long as they’re not accusing other people of things they themselves did.

  • Instead of speculating who “Kevin” is, maybe respond to his point:

    Is it fair/logical/moral for Sarah and Nippy, who recruited thousands and pocketed a small fortune, to now declare themselves victims and sue those they worked for, instead of being sued by those they themselves exploited?

    • One can do both.

      It doesn’t matter if it’s fair, logical or moral. That’s a thought exercise.

      What matters is what is legal. And who sustained damages that are quantifiable because of another person’s actions.

      If people want to sue Mark Vicente and Sarah Edmonson they’re welcome to it!! Anyone can bring a civil lawsuit against anyone else.

      Look at Mark Elliott and starz or even better Keith “vanguard” Raniere and Microsoft. Lol.

      The case may be thrown out but if you want to start a class action suit against Sarah and Mark – have at it!

      That would be interesting. Do it!

      This is a civil lawsuit. And it will be decided in a court of law. Anything other than that is just opinions of people commenting on a Blog.

      There is a difference however, in enrolling somebody into a self-help organization and deceitfully having your boyfriend’s initials burned into someone’s pelvis. Using blackmail to leverage a seduction assignment to get your friends to sleep with your boyfriend. And all of the rest. Illegal activities do have consequences.

      But please, start that civil action against Mark Vicent, Sarah Edmonson and any other Nxivm folk you’d like.

      Looking forward to reading your complaint and seeing the plaintiff list.

      • “It doesn’t matter if it’s fair, logical or moral. That’s a thought exercise — just opinions of people commenting on a Blog.”

        The FR is not a court of law, it is a blog where people can exercise their thoughts.

  • What about Rhiannon?

    That little girl had nothing to do with ESP or Sarah Edmondson or Mark Vicent or DOS or Nxivm.. Or any civil suit or criminal trial. Rhiannon never went on to try to make a single dime off of the severe protracted sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of Keith. Rhiannon has no book. No podcast

    Rhiannon went to the police. A report was filed The police failed her miserably. Keith was, is and will always be a sexual abuser and pornographer of children.

    There are way too many accusations over way too many years. Occam’s Razor.

    The odds that all of these unrelated and disparate children experienced sexual abuse and were groomed and raped by Keith Raniere is far greater and a much simpler explanation than that each and every girl is lying.

    Why was Keith even alone with so many individual unrelated minor girls over the years?

    The whole trajectory and complete picture of Keith Raniere life shows exactly who Keith was then and still is today.

    To ignore all of that empirical data is an act of willful ignorance.

    Keith is a child rapist. Keith is a child pornographer. Keith is a sexual predator.

    Keith Raniere is exactly where he belongs. For the rest of his predatory life.

  • Time for the 17k victims to class action sue Executive Success Programs executives since the top people are protecting the Salzman 3.

  • Civil suits are about money. Nancy, Lauren, and Michelle had already hid their money when Raniere was getting press attention. Clever girls.

  • Amazed that Lauren is still so protected. Very little mention of her in the new season of The Vow. And the podcast that Mark Vicente started he barely mentions her. And Sarah has not mentioned her at all in any recent podcasts. Do you think Mark and Sarah are still in touch with her? And are purposely protecting her from the media.?

    • I think all of those people don’t speak about her publicly because she was ruined by Reniere and is trying to quietly move on. Her profoundly brave court testimony helped put him away and I think people feel she deserves a chance to heal.

    • Hence RICO. This was an organized criminal organization, no different than the mafia. Everyone is protecting the top to save their own butts.

      • “… The pudding rests on a large gold platter at the centre of the table, which is covered by a white tablecloth. Pitt and Napoleon each have a smaller gold plate ready for their slices, Pitt’s bearing the British Royal Coat of Arms and Napoleon’s an imperial crown. The back of Pitt’s chair is decorated with the image of lion carrying a cross of St George (sometimes a Union Flag) and Napoleon’s has an Imperial eagle clutching a bonnet rouge …”

  • Kevin
    I hate to bust your bubble- YOU are talking about MY SISTER in this article and I think it is rude and disgusting. YOU and Frank are ONE in the same person, and I am very much aware of that.
    I have been SO depressed over 2 sisters being hurt by NXIVM, and then, then being chastised by someone who doesn’t even know them.
    WHY ? Who and why are they being taunted and Chastised ? Why?
    These 2 women are doing their part by keeping NXIVM from functioning- what is the problem ?
    Kevin – Frank, This is crap –

    • Miss, I don’t know who your sister is. The people I’m chastising here are Edmondson and Vicente, and to a lesser extent the Salzman women. I don’t mean to poke fun at any person who was harmed.

      I’m trying to point out the absurdity of suing rank and file, dues-paying members for things that the company president and managers should be responsible for, and then removing the company president from the lawsuit, but not removing the rank-and-file members.

  • Kevin reminds me of another commenter…..

    …The Sultan of Six.

    The good thing about Sultan is he never hated innocent people.

    Kevin on the other hand is definitely going postal.

    • It was the wildness of it, the primal lust, the sheer need of Sultan in heat, quickly finding ways to express his sacred hunger to his Kristin in animal passion. The only problem is, she did not know he existed.

      • — It was the wildness of it, the primal lust, the sheer need of Sultan in heat, quickly finding ways to express his sacred hunger to his Kristin in animal passion.

        Oh Frank, are you trying to get into writing romance novels? Will Fabio be on the covers of them?

        — The only problem is, she did not know he existed.

        And how would you know that Frank? Didn’t you claim that I was a white guy who traveled to Clifton Park to try to get her out of the cult, but instead of doing that, I stayed overnight at the residence of one of its prominent female member’s who I banged?

        I can assure you Kristin very much knows this alias as well as the real name and the person behind it.

        • Yes, I am writing a romance novel about you and Kristin. I’m doing it for the money and under a pen name – Finley Hunt. Who did you know?

          • Frank-

            I can assure you Sultan ain’t white.

            That “white guy” most certainly wasn’t Sultan.

          • The idea that Sultan wants to sleep with Kristin strikes most people as the silliest thing they have ever heard. Obviously, it would not seem so to Freud.

        • Sultan of Six-

          Great retorts and comebacks!
          So snide! You rock Sultan!

          PS Sultan: I said, awhile back I miss the Sultan and hope he’s doing well. Glad you’re back.
          It’s okay if you still hate my ass.
          ***

          Sorry, Frank the Sultan is on fire!

          • “The season was waning fast
            Our nights were growing cold at last
            I took her to bed with silk and song,
            ‘Lay still, my love, I won’t be long;
            I must prepare my body for passion.’
            ‘O, your body you give, but all else you ration.’
            ‘It is because of these dreams of a sylvan scene:
            A bleeding nymph to leave me serene…
            I have dreams of a trembling wench.’
            ‘You have dreams,’ she said, ‘that cannot be quenched.’
            ‘Our passion,’ said I, ‘should never be feared;
            As our longing for love can never be cured.
            Our want is our way and our way is our will,
            We have the love, my love, that no one can kill.’
            ‘If night is your love, then in dreams you’ll fulfill…
            This love, our love, that no one can kill.’
            Yet want is my way, and my way is my will,
            Thus I killed my love with a sleeping pill.”
            ― Roman Payne

          • That damn Roman Payne – he stole his whole story from Sultan. ‘You have dreams,’ she said, ‘that cannot be quenched.’

          • Oh Frank, have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and thought to yourself, “Hmm…why am I mocking someone else’s relationship status?”

            Are you commenting and then responding to yourself? Or is it one of your friends, confidants, employees, etc., who have been given access to the admin of your website? Because none of these comments were ever posted where any time gap was provided for people outside of that access to have responded to them.

            You’re almost seventy years old, single, and attempting to mock someone for something you don’t even have yourself. Grow the fuck up.

          • Sultan my sad young man. I will try to address your beef with me. I wrote what I wrote in part to help you wake up from your onanistic derangement syndrome.

            You wrote:

            Oh Frank, have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror

            The other day, I almost busted my nose, kissing one of the most beautiful people I ever saw. I had no idea the mirror was that close.

            Sultan writes:

            Oh, wait Sultan, can you count it as “a relationship”? You have an imaginary and onanistic pretend love affair with Kristin? Is that a relationship? Please, boy, there are women, perhaps not the brightest, perhaps not the most hygienic. Perhaps they have no teeth. But if their vision is poor enough, you could have a real relationship with a real live girl.

            The reason why “Ode to Kook” and my reply appear simultaneously is because comments on FR are not published until I approve them. I replied when I read and approved the comment. My comment and Ode’s comment were therefore published simultaneously. But all comments show when they were first posted – not when they are published [i.e. when I approved it.] Hope that explains it. No, the commenters are not imaginary like your love affair.

            You’re almost seventy years old, single, and attempting to mock someone for something you don’t even have yourself. Grow the fuck up.

            Seventy is the “new 40” dude. It is the time of life when, if you are fit and strong, and have enough self confidence to not have imaginary lovers like you, you can have the maturity and world experience to do one’s best work in life.

            It is the age to be, youngster. The human body is capable of being strong for a far longer period than anyone used to imagine.

            I can do a headstand for 30 minutes, swim 4 miles, and can probably lift you up and toss you like a rag doll.

            As for mocking someone for something I do not have – you are right — I do not have an imaginary relationship with an actress who does not know I exist. My relationships with women are reality-based. They are rewarding and reciprocal. As I grow older, I find that real beauty is intelligence, heart, and honesty, not artificial looks and cheap gaudy hubris. When you grow up, you will realize this.

            Please realize you and Kristin are not meant to be.

          • >> Sultan my sad young man. I will try to address your beef with me. I wrote what I wrote in part to help you wake up from your onanistic derangement syndrome.

            “My beef with you”?

            You’re the one who is still commenting on me years after I said a word about Kristin on this blog.

            >> The other day, I almost busted my nose, kissing one of the most beautiful people I ever saw. I had no idea the mirror was that close.

            LMAO.

            It is said that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Unfortunately, some people are blind, both physically and figuratively.

            >> Oh, wait Sultan, can you count it as “a relationship”? You have an imaginary and onanistic pretend love affair with Kristin?

            Are you really this obtuse? I referred to YOUR projected imaginary relationship status of me and Kristin. I never claimed having ANY particular relationship with Kristin, whether intimate or otherwise. I have only ever claimed here to be a fan and that she knows my alias and the real name behind it.

            >> The reason why “Ode to Kook” and my reply appear simultaneously is because comments on FR are not published until I approve them. I replied when I read and approved the comment.

No, the commenters are not imaginary like your love affair.

            It doesn’t explain a damn thing.

            The comments that are posted and their responses don’t appear AT ALL to those who DON’T have special access, i.e., anonymous or public users. A comment must appear first, then some time must be given for someone to respond to it, then even more time must pass before those comments can be published. Everyone knows how slow you are in posting comments. I have watched comments on this blog and seen non-public comments AND their responses appear as public near simultaneously when such a time gap has NEVER been given. That means you are either commenting on your own comments as different people and then publishing them or you and someone granted special access by you to do so are commenting among yourselves before doing so.

            And it’s simply something you wouldn’t know since you have that special access. So you’ve essentially given yourself away.

            >> Seventy is the “new 40” dude…

            So imagining yourself to be an age almost thirty years your junior excuses your immaturity?

            [I’m rolling my eyes right now]

            >> As for mocking someone for something I do not have – you are right — I do not have an imaginary relationship with an actress who does not know I exist…

            But you have NO actual knowledge of that to make such claim. It’s just mere conjecture on your part, a projection created to mock me in a way that others on the Internet use pejoratives like “white knight” or “simp” because I have wrote about and defended Kristin in the past, and one that happens to be completely WRONG since I know for a fact that she knows I exist, and not just my alias, but who I actually am.

          • Dear Sultan – Back in the day, did you comment as VanDouche and Dark VanDouche? Cause if you did, you should take OG credit.

          • “Perhaps they have no teeth. But if their vision is poor enough, you could have a real relationship with a real live girl.”
            (Frank Parlato)

            So you, Frank, are tacitly encouraging Sultan to move back to his National Geographic country of origin.

            Despicable.

          • The issue is Sultan has constructed Kristin’s female sexuality, and in so doing has annihilated the chance for him finding sexual intelligence in her. [Not to mention she does not even know he exists]. But even if she knew of his existence, sexual intelligence cannot live in the shallow, predestined sexuality Sultan has counterfeited for Kristin.

          • >> Dear Sultan – Back in the day, did you comment as VanDouche and Dark VanDouche? Cause if you did, you should take OG credit.

            Yes sir. Before I began to comment with my most used alias, it was the first alias I ever used.

            Once that 2012 TU article by Jame’s Odato revealed who he was and the dominos of mire critical articles after that began to fall, the gloves came off. Anyone who claims to be some moral exemplar via his own words or indirectly through others but engages in hypocritical behavior that contradicts it deserves all the scathing criticism he gets.

            >> “Perhaps they have no teeth. But if their vision is poor enough, you could have a real relationship with a real live girl.”
            >> (Frank Parlato)

            >> So you, Frank, are tacitly encouraging Sultan to move back to his National Geographic country of origin.

            Way to show complete ignorance of the demographics of the region of the world my parents are from (I was born and raised in the USA). There are plenty of beautiful South Asian women – my brother married one of them, and so did both of his brother-in-laws. That region of the world has produced multiple Miss World and Miss Universe winners.

            Frank doesn’t even know what I look like, so he’s just shooting in the dark with his demeaning “vision is poor enough” comment. But like I implied before, a person should look in the mirror first before they attempt to demean someone else’s looks (if it should even be done at all), at least if they still have any sense of decorum.

            >> The issue is Sultan has constructed Kristin’s female sexuality, and in so doing has annihilated the chance for him finding sexual intelligence in her.

            OK Sigmund Freud.

            WTF does “constructed female sexuality” even mean? LMAO. Sounds like Raniere word salad. I haven’t “constructed” anything. As a heterosexual male I am attracted to beautiful women. There is nothing more to it that the teleological “nature of things”. Kristin’s looks, her eyes, and her booty are attractive to me. But so is her intelligence, career ability and the financial independence she has created from it, and character.

            And how many times are you going to repeat the phrase “doesn’t know he even exists” or its equivalent in every comment you make concerning me with Kristin in it? Incessantly repeating something doesn’t make it true.

    • Bud, if Vicente, Edmondson and the Salzmans are innocent people, then I play center field for the Yankees.

      The innocent people, at least two of them, are the ones being sued.

      • Thank you for the baseball reference. Maybe you are a dude after all…

        One Salzman is in prison and the other on probation. Who called them innocent?

        As far as Sarah and Marc, look up the word “compartmentalize”. Since you’re becoming an expert on Vanguard, you should also become an expert on the word that he mastered.

  • Kevin,

    —What’s my position? I’ve made my position clear.

    For the record your position isn’t clear. It’s muddled.

    • “Kevin” is fluid in position. Because they think they are smarter and more ethical than other readers.

      They’ve dropped a few of their “tells” as a writer. And adjusted some obvious lies, but it’s a dead-ender.

      And the agenda is the same as always. Free Keith Raniere. Rehabilitation of Nxivm and DARVO

      • Kevin doesn’t want to free Keith Raniere and rehabilitate NXIVM and DARVO. He seems to just want as many people as possible to hurry up and figure out who organized, funded, established and directed NXIVM.

        Why muddy the water, distract readers and waste time with such juvenile insults when there’s a whole world out there to save?

        NXIVM wasn’t a “sex cult” as much as it was a series of human subject experiments using interventional studies, observational studies, sleep deprivation, starvation, sexual assault, torture, racketeering, extortion, blackmail … Catherine Oxenberg read the first page of the preliminarily list of charges in the documentary, “Seduced”. That preliminary list of charges was in alphabetical order. It took her a few minutes just to read the list from blackmail to extortion.

        Which individuals and which offices committed the crimes on the entire list, A – Z?

        If Kevin simply wonders why so few were arrested, charged, prosecuted and jailed, my guess is:

        It probably has something to do with a few involved in NXIVM “belonging to intelligence”.

        How many individuals (directly and indirectly) involved in NXIVM were also involved in the Epstein/Maxwell case (besides Alan Dershowitz)?

        Punishing the victims in the NXIVM case while letting most of the perpetrators walk free is what happened in the Epstein/Maxwell case. It’s also what happens in corrupt family courts when abused children and protective parents are punished and the perpetrators and accomplices walk free.

        If we need more actionable primary sources of information to present to the authorities, we will need to find that information as soon as possible and give it to the authorities who will properly address the crimes committed. As many whistleblowers as possible need to step forward ASAP — anonymously or not — when they can do so safely.

        A preliminary list of sources for information online about DARVO, Dr. Jennifer Freyd, The False Memory Syndrome Foundation, Dr. Elizabeth Loftus, Louis Jolson West and The Apparently Irrelevant Nuremberg Code follows:

        _______________

        “… DARVO can be used by anyone in response to being held accountable for wrongdoings they have committed. When it was first introduced by Dr. Jennifer Freyd, DARVO was conceptualized as a technique used by sex offenders to deflect blame …”
        https://www.choosingtherapy.com/darvo/

        ________________

        “… Around 1990, Freyd severed ties with her parents, stating that a recent therapy had uncovered memories of her father, mathematics professor Peter J. Freyd, abusing her during her childhood. Her parents, Pamela and Peter Freyd, disputed Freyd’s claims of sexual assault, and in 1992 co-founded the False Memory Syndrome Foundation, which has been described as a US “advocacy group […] for people claiming to have been wrongly accused of physical and sexual abuse.”. Three years after its founding, it had more than 7,500 members. The foundation was dissolved on December 31, 2019 …”

        “… Mike Stanton in the Columbia Journalism Review stated that the FMSF “helped revolutionize the way the press and the public view one of the angriest debates in America—whether an adult can suddenly remember long-forgotten childhood abuse”. … Ralph Underwager was a member of the foundation’s scientific advisory board in 1993 when his comments from a 1991 interview he and his wife Hollida Wakefield gave to Paidika: The Journal of Paedophilia came to public awareness. The article contained statements which were interpreted as supportive of paedophilia. … ”

        “You haven’t written a book called ‘Impartial Witness,’ right?” Pomerantz asked, sparking a defense objection.

        After the judge overruled, Loftus replied: “I don’t have a book by that title, no.”

        “To Whom It May Concern:

        Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

        I request that a copy of the following documents [or documents containing the following information] be provided to me: anything related to the False Memory Syndrome Foundation and/or it’s members including Drs. Elizabeth Loftus, Louis West and Martin Orne and what connection, if any, the CIA or CIA-funded psychiatrists like Orne and West, had to do with the False Memory Syndrome Foundation.

        As you know, FOIA requires agencies to release information unless it is specifically exempt from disclosure, and also requires agencies to release all reasonably segregable nonexempt portions of documents, i.e., to redact exempt portions of documents and release the rest. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(a)(8). In order to help to determine my status for purposes of determining the applicability of any fees, you should know that I am a freelance journalist and author.

        I am currently a reporter for The Latest and various other publications, and this request is made as part of news gathering and not for a commercial use.

        I am willing to pay fees for this request up to a maximum of $75. If you estimate that the fees will exceed this limit, please inform me first.

        I do, however, request a waiver of all fees for this request. Disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the government and is not primarily in my commercial interest. The information will be disseminated via The Latest, a publication where my only pay is my byline and potentially at my personal site or to be used as part of a long form work of journalism.
        I request that the information I seek be provided in electronic format.

        I ask that, if at all possible, my request receive expedited processing because it is in the benefit of the public and there is a compelling need to expose any connection the CIA may have had, as per certain MK-Ultra affiliated scientists serving on the FSMF scientific advisory board.

        Thank you for your prompt consideration of this request.

        Sincerely,
        Philip Fairbanks

        The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

        In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

        Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

        Sincerely,

        “… West’s files — especially his correspondence with the CIA’s longtime poisons expert, Sidney Gottlieb — shed new light on one of the most infamous projects in the agency’s history. Likely comprising more than 149 subprojects and at least 185 researchers working at institutions across America and Canada, MKUltra was, as the New York Times put it, “a secret twenty-five year, twenty-five million dollar effort by the CIA to learn how to control the human mind.” Its experiments violated international laws, not to mention the agency’s charter, which forbids domestic activity. …”

    • The bad guys are suing their victims for things the bad guys themselves did, while using their resources in the media to manipulate people into believing that they are the good guys and that their victims are bad.

      • Nicki Clyne also uses her “resources in the media” to manipulate people into thinking victims of Keith Renee are somehow bad people.

        As if Sylvie and Camilla are not victims. They’re just money hungry liars.

        Dead-endet Nicki also is making money off of Nxivm still by trying to get people to sign up for pay subscriptions and hear. ” the other side of the story” or untold details of the cult. Nicki appeared in The Vow. As do multiple other Raniere loyalists.

    • If the blackmail material is so meaningless, Nicki can publish her collateral on the Internet. She has them all.

  • Frank’s preamble read like the intro to an episode of Soap.
    Frank is my dude. Great stuff!

    • In my next episode: Vanguard crosses the line with Toni Fly. He’s not happy at the SHU, and although he promised to stay until the details of the Warden and him get smoothed out, it seems like Danielle planned to tell Nicki about leaving his role as SHU roommate. That whole aspect has caused some minor issues between Sarah and Mark.

  • I find all the players in this NXIVM morally lacking.

    The deadenders are just liars and supporters of fraud and criminal.

    It’s great that Sarah and Mark were whistleblowers, but now they’re basically just using this status for fame and compensation while playing dumb instead of just moving on with their lives and doing the work associated with the job titles they had once considered themselves as.

    Also, it seems certain people are excused for their immoral behavior even though they committed wrongs and were long-term members of this idiotic cult just because they’re friends with people who are in general looked upon as the good guys.

  • Edmondson, the lead defendant, recruited Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne into NXIVM. Wasn’t it Kristin Kreuk who recruited Allison when they were working together in Smallville? And why is Edmonsun suing anyone when she profited off of this cult as much as Raniere and the Salzmans.

    • Sarah recruited Kristin who recruited Allison so Allison was in her upline as was Nicki. Sarah was above both of the women, profited off their continuing involvement. But Allison and Nicki were above Sarah in DOS.

          • I did not want to come off as mean. You deserved to find pleasure that surpassed your imagination, better than any you had experienced. You only found venereal warts and women laughing at you.

      • Frank, how much was Sarah paid for her rank/status in NXIVM/ESP per month?

        And how much were Allison and Nicki paid for their work in DOS?

        • I don’t have precise answers, but I would guess Sarah’s income in NXIVM as a center owner was about 5- to 10 times what Allison or Nicki earned. Nicki had to work for Clare for $15 per hour. Allison was part owner of the Source – which made no money.

          Sarah was one of the top earners, and next to Barb Bouchey and Barb Jeske, may be the top recruiter of all time in NXIVM. She believed in it at the time. When she did, she gave her best effort. When she stopped believing, she gave her best effort to take down NXIVM.

          • Frank if you’re willing to speculate about certain people’s incomes how does Nicki Clyne ive? Where is Nicki’s money coming from? Is she still being paid by Claire Bronfman? Nicki filed with the court that she’s broke. What’s going on with Nicki financially? She seems able to live quite well and travel a lot for a person with no savings or income. It will probably all come out in the civil suit anyway so spill please. Thank you!

          • I can only speculate that there is money for the attack on Raniere’s conviction, and Nicki is a full-time worker in that cause. She is sincere. I do like her but I disagree with her view of Raniere. So if I guess, Nicki lives frugally but has some income from Team Raniere for her work for the Free Raniere objective.

            It is no secret that an heiress of a liquor fortune has funded Team Raniere for some time.

          • Frank if you’re willing to speculate about certain people’s incomes, how much do you think Flowers makes?
            Niceguy’s wife?
            Ice-Nine?
            Scott Johnson?
            Sarah and Nippy?
            My mechanic (who now asks for a tip when he changes my oil for $89)?

          • Nice Guy’s wife does well — about $500k. Ice Nine – $600k, Sara and Nippy about $700k. Scott Johnson took a hit when he invested heavily in a certain fowl biscuit treat, and if I err not, showed negative income based on deductions and operating losses.

          • Flowers has been reticent. The only thing she said in response to a suggestion is “Cosmetic surgery is not ‘cosmetic,’ and human flesh is not ‘plastic.'”

  • This, while the company president is removed from the civil suit. This is because the lead plaintiff, Edmondson, who herself was an executive in the organization, is friends with the president’s daughter, Lauren.

    You know Lauren, the one accused of imprisoning an underage girl in a room for two years.

    That says it all, folks!

    • Daniela was a young adult when in the room, not underage. Still very troubling though. And Lauren was an accomplice to that horrorstory. For that alone she deserved some prisontime herself. No matter how indoctrinated or brainwashed you are, or whatever you want to call it, there should be some braincells left in your head that realize this 2year lock-up of a person is very, very, very disgustingly bad. No sympathy for Lauren, despite her cooperation with the prosecutor.

      • Steven, it’s not about what people actually did, but who is friends with the right people. That the Salzmans have been removed from the civil suit makes the whole thing grounds for dismissal.

    • When you’re banging half the county and going down on half the girls in your organization….you can see how ppl owe her favors. One trick deserves another…

  • Queue up the completely anonymous commenter blasting Kevin for allegedly saying Sarah is an unfit mother and her kids should be taken from her.

    • Kevin DID write that people should be worried about Sarah’s children.

      That happened. Frank even stepped up for Sarah. It wasn’t an isolated incident. Even after Frank said it was untrue.l

      Kevin is as anonymous as anyone else on this blog.

      What kind of human being goes after a perceived enemies children? A woman that they’ve never met.

      A loathsome, desperate and evil person.

      Thank you, for beetlejuicing this comment.

      Please call again! Enjoy your day.

      • Kevin is great at shifting the narrative to what he wants. I hate that bullshit. Doing the same thing back at him doesn’t help and is also bullshit. And you know this way better than me.

        • So, stop acting dumb and playing the victim. Take responsibility for what you should take responsibility for and grow the fuck up. It’s an easy path and you have a soft landing. Maybe if you put your name on your shit, it would force you to play nice.

          • My name is Bevin.

            You mad. Like, came back later with more. Many hours later, mad.

            Relax. No one is going to shit in your free HBO mug. Probably.

            Thank you for all your incredible feedback. Will take it all under advisement.

            You have a good day…. Nut job.

            That’s your government name, right?

          • “Up mad.”

            Is shifting reactionary or thought through? Either way, your pattern deserves you poking at it.

  • Same thing happened in Epstein case and now Weinstein. Victims signed a deal to point the blame on one person (ex: Ghislaine). Now these victims are suing. Nancy and Lauren aren’t innocent, people are making deals to point blame at one person aka Keith.

    • Aristotle-

      That’s so insulting to Kevin. It’s like saying Kevin doesn’t matter.

      You’re a real meany!

    • Aristotle, does it bother you that some of the readers of this blog are beginning to see the DOS women as people and not as comic book supervillians?

      • So hyperbolic! Nobody is seeing them as supervillains. It’s insulting to readers of this blog and writers of comments to say that they do not see them as humans. That’s a complaint you should take to someone like Eduardo. Who’s never met a trans person that he doesn’t have any connection with whatsoever that he does not despise hate and mock. Eduardo one of the ESP ethical integrated and kind humans uses his social media to attack random total strangers for their appearance and being part of the lgbtq community. That’s dehumanizing. In order for people on this blog to have an opinion about a woman or two who support a child pedophile and pornographer they would have to see those women as human. That’s what makes it despicable. Just because a person has a different opinion of a human than you do Kevin doesn’t mean they don’t see those women as human. It actually means they acknowledge them as human and are very disappointed in their lack of humanity.

        You also might want to dial back constantly asking people does it bother you front loaded questions it’s one of your many many tells in your writing. That’s a freebie!

      • Arguably, running a cult based on RICO entails the participants have bad object relations at the very least – definitely some difficulty recognising the sovereignty of others. Why is that? could it be that cult membership is premised on a divisive view of humanity? a sense that we in the cult know better how to live life, than those without?

        Is the title ‘Vanguard’ less super-villainish than, say, The Joker? The Riddler?How about setting up secret societies called things like ‘Dominus Obscurantism Sh*t’ or ‘Society of Protectionists’? How about the fetish for collecting endless pics of vaginas, from ‘slaves’ – decades of continually photographed ‘orifice searches’ all of which could get sent to parents, employers, the press, if the cult protocols are disobeyed.

        There is not equivalency between the opinions of the readers of FR, and the behaviours of the perpetrators of the crimes being read about and discussed.

  • 17,000 people can open up their own civil or do a class action. Don’t let Nancy, Lauren, and Michelle off the hook. Once you do all the money will funnel right back to them from their families that moved it around for them.

  • Civil cases are all about money. Nancy and Lauren had already hid and moved their money. Nothing on paper to get from them. That’s the only reason they dropped them.

  • Unconditional love and support for the people that you’ve chosen as “good” no matter what they have done. Or continue to do.

    But conditional love and support for others that you don’t like, but only IF they behave exactly as you demand.

    Ha ha. Oh Kevin, you mug shitting stalker. You are such a hypocrite.

    They all hurt each other. They all continue to do so. But some of that hurt was illegal. Some caused physical and other quantifiable damages. And that part is not up to you.

    How do you like Riverside?

    • Which sounds more like stalker behavior to you? Me making a comment on a blog about a public figure who chooses to be one, or Sarah calling Nicki’s mother and threatening her?

      • But how do you know that happened?

        Kevin, you’re supposed to just be a random person who is a total stranger to everybody involved in the Nxivm case except for when you were a child PA at Smallville and saw Allison Mack at work once.

        Kevin, you are just on this blog to defend Danielle Roberts, right?

        Now you’re privy to private phone calls between Sarah Edmondson and other people’s moms? How does that work?

        Try to remember to stay in character when you’re commenting as your Kevin persona.

        Just like when you dress up as Sarah Edmondson and you take out your Nippy doll and have breakfast together you manage to stay in character the whole time.

        And to answer your question. You. You sound like more of a stalker.

  • FFS Frank, whoever “Kevin” is, he/she aint no Smallville extra, so just pull the other one. We all know it’s tricky Nicki! And on that subject, Notkevinicki, we all know that Nicki et al were in receipt of, and almost certainly still are, copious cash payouts of Bromfman dollars going back years. What percentage of that did the IRS get I wonder lol! ? So don’t give us that BS they didn’t make any money!!!

    • Gratifying that other people see Kevin for the Sham commenter they are and are not the least bit fooled by their really clumsy attempts to not appear to be a dead Ender. In the future just for fun list all the identifying characteristics in their writing although they are trying to hide some of those now. Too late kevin!
