Magnetic Eye Records merges with Overit

Digital marketing firm expands music interests with

investment in independent label

The culmination of a musical friendship going back nearly a decade, Daniel Dinsmore and Michael Vitali, the respective heads of nationally-recognized creative agency Overit and trailblazing underground label Magnetic Eye Records, have agreed to intertwine their musical ambitions by joining forces.

As of July 2018, Magnetic Eye’s official headquarters will be relocated to Overit’s Albany compound, which houses expansive video and digital content studios as well as a state-of-the-art recording facility.

Vitali and Label Director (and MeteorCity founder) Jadd Shickler will continue to guide Magnetic Eye’s efforts as they prepare for their biggest release to date, the massive The Wall [Redux] / Best of Pink Floyd project, which features such artists as The Melvins, Mark Lanegan, Summoner, ASG, Ruby the Hatchet, Domkraft, and Scott Reeder, and is set to land this November.

The involvement of Overit Studios’ Michelle Dinsmore will further broaden the new entity’s reach, as her work with numerous booking agencies, distributors, and Astralwerks Records makes her the perfect complement to push things forward on the music placement and relationship-building side.

MER’s output will be bolstered with the re-channeling of various Overit musical projects into its pipeline, including the widely-anticipated new album from The Clay People in September.  Similarly, MER’s marketing initiatives will be augmented by the creativity and resources of the Overit staff, a development that can only mean great things for the label and its artist roster.

“I began Overit in 1993 with a ton of ideas and myself as the one employee,” Dinsmore explains.  “Today, we’ve grown to a 40-person company that works with brands from all over the world. I recorded and made music with Mike Vitali in Ironweed and have followed what he has done over the years with MER… we always talked about joining forces, and now the time was right.

We have seen record companies looking almost frantically for what to do about declining sales and digital being a problem for their bottom lines. MER brings their passion and love for releasing exciting new material, and with our machine of digital strategists, producers, engineers, developers, cinematographers, marketers and one of the only A recording studios on the east coast, we are going to help MER’s artists reach a bigger audience and propel the label to the next level despite these uncertainties.”

Vitali continues, “I’ve always admired Dan’s attention to detail in his musicianship and business dealings, and he’s truly a powerhouse of innovation and creativity.  Once we started playing in bands and becoming friends, I was pretty sure we had a larger purpose beyond playing music together.  I’ve watched him grow his business and artistic vision, and have always been blown away by the results.

The conversations about working together and ways to partner his media company and studio with my record label have literally been years in the making, and the time to bring together the experience and talent of Overit with the history and ambitions of Magnetic Eye Records is now.”

Go Green with Steel Build

As a new start-up, there are a million things to consider about your business, from your key strategies and three-year goals to your hiring process and office culture. Yet, one of the things that can often be left to last is where you will work from. It is very easy in the beginning to start your business from home as this is a cost-effective way to build up clientele, but as your enterprise expands and it becomes essential to bring on board other talented individuals the need for additional space becomes a priority. Buying or renting premises requires a good deal of initial capital and with some companies already working to a tight budget, a smart, green solution is needed.

Why should I invest?

Steel Builds are an excellent investment if you have available land or garden space at home that you can expand upon. They come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours to suit its purpose and can provide a highly functional space suited to any business venture. They are easily customised, meaning you can add a mezzanine level if you want to build an area just for meetings or a social space for team lunches. They come pre-fabricated and are incredibly easy to erect which can cut the cost of hiring help. Armstrong Steel is a company with years of experience helping homeowners and businesses expand their premises and develop successfully, making them the perfect place to start your search for the right steel build for you.

Why are they green?  

Steel buildings are an incredibly environmentally friendly option for businesses as they are completely recyclable and can be very easily modified to include solar panels and wind turbines, meaning you could power your entire operation sustainably, maintaining a low-carbon footprint. Steel is a low waste, flexible and durable material with a high safety factor, ideal for keeping costs low and keeping your employees protected. These buildings can be expanded upon as your business needs changed and can be restructured with little disruption.

Other tips on how to make your business green

Running a sustainable business is not just great for the environment; it also makes great financial sense with many suppliers offering reduced rates for buying in bulk with a percentage of the profits going towards environmental charities. Other ways you can directly make your business more green are:

  • Communicate with your employees and let them know your sustainable goals so everyone can work together to achieve them
  • Invest in dedicated recycling bins for the office and anything that cannot be placed in them such as printer ink cartridges and batteries should be sent to locally run schemes that dispose of them correctly.
  • Use water wisely and only what you need. Bathroom facilities can be modified to save up to five litres per flush.
  • Holding meetings on site will reduce your travel time, expenses and your carbon footprint. This is also a great way for your clients to see how the business is run directly.

NIXVM Sex Cult Doctor — Brandon Porter’s Medical Licensing Revocation Hearing Today

Dr. Brandon Porter, 44, has been charged by the New York State Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC)  with illegally conducting human experiments and other deeds of malpractice. He is a physician.

His hearing is scheduled for today.

It is not believed to be open to the public. However, if his licensed is suspended or revoked, it will become public. A source told me Dr. Porter’s license is already suspended pending the results of this hearing.  Keep in mind these are not criminal charges, but licensing charges. There may be a criminal referral to the New York State Attorney General.

The OPMC accused Porter of moral unfitness, gross negligence, and gross incompetence.

As first reported in Frank Report, Dr. Porter showed human females, while connected to an EEG machine, videos of murders and dismemberment of women by machetes; an African American being stomped by a Nazi; a man being forced to eat a portion of his own brain; gang rape; and other items sure to startle and be revolting to most women. Dr. Porter conducted his experiments for The Ethical Science Foundation, funded by Clare Bronfman.

Dr. Porter is also charged with violating state law for improperly conducting studies on obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and monitoring brain waves of students at Nxivm intensives. As of yet, they have not brought any charges regarding Dr. Porter’s alleged involvement with Rainbow Cultural Garden, another Keith Raniere-inspired illegal operation that was funded by Sara Bronfman.

The state also admonished Dr. Porter for not reporting to health officials that more than 100 people, including children, at the 2016 Vanguard Week in Silver Bay, New York, became ill with an infectious illness that produced flu-like symptoms, vomiting and diarrhea.

Did Keith Raniere and Dr. Porter introduce something into the food as an experiment?

None of the High Rank of NXIVM got ill. Neither did several slaves Raniere was having sex with on the YMCA campgrounds on the banks of Lake George where V-Week was held. Raniere ordered all sick individuals to remain in their rooms and not to leave or even look outside and afterwards to never tell anyone they were sick. Dr. Porter was able to examine sick cult members’ reactions during illness and record how they responded to pain.

It remains to be seen if Dr. Porter is charged criminally. Perhaps he will turn state’s evidence. It seems likely that he will lose his medical license.

As a young man, Dr. Porter was a fan of Mr. Spock of Star Trek. Sadly his Captain Kirk – Vanguard – was captured by the Federation.

Dr. Brandon Porter – he’s no Spock. But then again, Vanguard is his captain.
Vanguard
Artist conception: Dr. conducts a female human fright experiment where he shows a woman films of rape, and murder of women. *Dr. Porter is also in charge of monitoring the linguistic skills of children in Rainbow Cultural Garden..

Dr. Porter was still in Med School when he began Executive Success Programs.

Here is his testimonial: 

As a physician and scientist, my background is in science. I entered into my MD/PhD program with the hopes of learning the tools of science so I could use them to help humanity. It was during my training as an MD/PhD student that I was first introduced to Executive Success Programs. Initially, I was intrigued by the strength of the intellectual content and the philosophical concepts introduced in the model.
However, with time, I became even more impressed by the emotional strength I was gaining as the result of these unique and innovative tools.
Simply put, prior to taking this training, I was scared of experiencing my emotions (and other people who had emotions). You could say I identified very easily with “Spock” from Star Trek. However, as with Spock, this lack of emotionality made for a sterile and frustrating experience of life. I wanted to be emotionally present, but I felt more comfortable coming from a place of intellect and logic. However, (to my great joy!) with this new toolset I was able to craft an ability to have deep emotional experiences AND hone my tools of logic and scientific inquiry together. (It turns out, unlike in Star Trek, emotional strength and logical ability are not mutually exclusive.)
As a result, I feel more like a living, breathing, compassionate human being and I think my friends, family and patients experience me this way too. I also gained a greater capacity for scientific investigation, but, in hindsight, this seems like a pleasant side effect.

Can Seagram’s Heiress Clare Bronfman Buy Her Way out of Indictment? – Don’t Bet On It!

By Frank Parlato

Will Clare Bronfman be indicted? I would say, “yes and soon.”  .

Based on statements made in federal court by AUSA Moira Penza on June 12 – in clear reference to Bronfman – the prosecution is planning to indict her.  Here are Penza’s statements referencing Clare:

MS. PENZA: This is a person who the government does believe has acted as a co-conspirator in criminal activity with the defendant [Ranniere].

THE COURT: Who has?

MS. PENZA: The person who is funding this trust —

THE COURT: Yes.

MS. PENZA: — has acted as a co-conspirator of the defendant over many years.

Image result for moira penza us doj
Moira Penza is lead prosecutor in the case against Raniere-Mack. Has she been given permission to indict a Bronfman? My guess is yes, she has.

This suggests the Department of Justice, Eastern District of New York [EDNY] and the NYC based FBI agents are not wasting their time and that Main Justice [Washington DC headquarters of the DOJ] is not going to put the brakes on a Bronfman indictment – and have signaled to the EDNY that they can move forward and indict a Bronfman.

Although it is not completely analogous, for the stakes were higher – the FBI NYC had evidence they evidently believed was sufficient to convict Hillary Clinton, but were overruled by Main Justice. FBI agents who worked on the Clinton investigation were upset by this decision. They spent a lot of time on the case – and agents are not promoted based on justice, [they get no points for doing an investigation that exonerates – that does not lead to an indictment] but on indictments and convictions and the amount of time convictions yield for the accused spent in prison. This is no secret.

And it is also no secret that some FBI agents threatened to resign over what they believed was the lack of integrity at Main Justice concerning the Clinton investigation. They believed Clinton was being protected by what some have called the Deep State – the DC elite and the uber-wealthy – the wealthy of more than just this one nation.

The ‘modus operendi’ gives us a clue as to why Clare Bronfman retained a deeply-connected lawyer from Arizona.  Dennis Burke once took the fall for the DOJ – and had to resign as US Attorney for Arizona – a normally deeply embarrassing disgrace for anyone — [he resigned because he got caught lying]. Still, he resigned [and was not prosecuted] I believe – to protect the coverup of the black ops Fast and Furious criminal scheme conducted by the deep state of the US government.

After resigning, Burke went into private practice.  He seems to me the best pre-indictment legal choice money could buy for Bronfman.  He carries a cache with him. The imprimatur that he can go over the EDNY’s heads. He took the fall, fell on his sword, by resigning for the whole Department of Justice and in effect ended the public curiosity over the investigation into Fast and Furious – a most corrupt black op-fundraising scheme.  There is much Burke might have said to protect himself and expose the underbelly of this murderous scheme.  Indeed, the Deep State almost had no choice but to not prosecute him for this very reason. He played along famously, He resigned and kept his mouth shut. They owe him.

Afterward, the DOJ appointed him – despite his ostensible disgrace in having to resign as a US Attorney – to a top advisory board position to the AG himself – Jeff Sessions.  This kind of prestige appointment pays nothing but is a lucrative prop to give confidence to high wealth clients who are considering retaining him. It is presumed influence peddling.

I am guessing that, at the topmost levels of the DOJ, the FBI, the ATF, the CIA and elsewhere, there are decision makers who know they owe Dennis Burke a debt of gratitude for taking the fall for the murders, gun running and money raising and laundering on behalf of various federal agencies – by bringing untold numbers of guns into Mexico and giving/selling them to criminals.

Whether Burke can parlay that into a ‘no bill’ against Bronfman is hard to say. Can he broker a deal where Clare becomes an un-indicted co conspirator? And not be charged?  The problem with this is that everyone knows Clare funded most of the crimes.

If they indict Nancy Salzman and other less affluent NXIVM co conspirators and absolve Clare, it will message the world that the US Department of Justice [with its Orwellian use of the word ‘justice’] is really up for sale.  Which of course it truly is – only Americans are not supposed to know it.

No – I think it’s “either everyone or no one.” Clare and her gang – or let them all go free and be satisfied with only Allison Mack and Keith Raniere.  I think, we are way past the latter. I believe Main Justice DOJ in DC and Main Office IRS have signed off on a Bronfman indictment. It is only a matter of time – maybe days. And for various reasons the EDNY will have to act soon – probably by the end of July for the judge has admonished expedition.

To wit:

MS. PENZA: … As we did tell Your Honor earlier, we do expect — at our last status conference, we do expect a superseding indictment in this case and that there will be additional discovery obligations in accordance with the superseding indictment as well.

THE COURT: So this would be a superseding indictment as to these defendants?

MS. PENZA: As to these defendants — as to these defendants, yes.

THE COURT: And what about the issue of any additional defendants that might come along and whether we would be having one trial or more than one trial in this case?

MS. PENZA: Your Honor, at this time, based on our ongoing investigation and the charges that we do expect to bring in the superseding indictment, which we have made representations to at least Mr. Agnifilo on the phone earlier this week, that we expect to do that within the next month and a half, we would be seeking — the government would expect that the defendants that we seek to charge would be tried at the same time based on the charges that we anticipate bringing.

***

THE COURT: … As a practical matter, if there’s a superseding indictment and that superseding indictment includes other defendants, it’s going to restart the clock anyway and then there’s the question of if some of the people indicted are potentially cooperators, there are all kinds of issues here…. Last time, with all due respect to the government, they said it would be four to six weeks or something like that and we would have a superseding indictment. I thought it was scheduled today, a meeting for today we’d have a better understanding what the timing would be for a trial, but now that’s been pushed back and we’re talking about July or August, right?

MS. PENZA: Yes, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Right. So what I think I ought to do is make a schedule such that we have a status conference in July and we see where we are. And if we have to go ahead with just a trial of two people on October 1st, you can hurry up and make your motions at that point. Does that sound reasonable?

***

For now let us examine the realities. America has a special cadre of men and women who are generally above the law. This includes the very wealthy [who are also above any nation’s laws] and the DC elites and their allies – sometimes referred to as “the Deep State.”  A Bronfman, in the past, would have almost certainly qualified for above the law status. {Which shows how far the family has fallen in just three generations.]  There are many indications that Clare Bronfman will not be treated to such special status.

Image result for dennis burke
Dennis Burke will be paid either way.

Primarily, I believe, because the federal [and state] criminal investigation into Bronfman-Raniere is massive and civil actions that may follow will likely be unprecedented and exceedingly likely to make Clare, and maybe her sister, Sara Bronfman, ultimately paupers – or at least women of substantially lower net worth. There may be nothing to protect them. The green light has likely been given to indict Clare and quite possibly Sara Bronfman.

From a standpoint of justice [one of the least of considerations] should Clare Bronfman be indicted? Yes, she should.  It is the only way to prevent her from using her wealth to destroy the lives of more human beings, the only way to cripple the massive coordinated defense strategies of the NXIVM organization, the only way  – to indict her and Sara – to stop the further exploitation of people still under Raniere’s thrall. So, yes, she should be indicted.

She almost has to be indicted. For the DOJ – because this investigation is massive – and others will be indicted – it means they will have to indict her too – even if reluctantly – even if Burke might wish it otherwise – because not to indict her will make the DOJ look utterly and completely corrupt. And no agency – and one without any oversight whatsoever [which is of course the real reason for corruption] can afford to look corrupt – no matter how corrupt they are.

Clare Bronfman – much like Dennis Burke – is a good fall guy [or gal]. She belongs at least ostensibly to the above-the-law set and therefore makes a perfect example to be paraded as “see – no one is above the law.  The law is the law and we can indict even a Bronfman.”

That’s the message. It is of course untrue. The law is only the law when prosecutors want to enforce it. This time however they want to.  For two decades, prosecutors in the Northern District must have known about criminality involving Bronfman-Raniere – but either chose not to enforce the law or were too inept to be able to do so.

Now the plain facts are before us: Bronfman must be charged – not because she did criminal acts – that doesn’t matter – but because she was stupid. She joined a desperado named Keith Raniere and aligned herself with this criminally insane man and stupidly it made worldwide news.  This is not just the local Albany Times Union writing stories. The New York Times and the entire worldwide media is on the case.

Not to charge her [while charging Mack, the two Salzmans, Unterreiner and other obscure individuals] will be prima facie evidence that there are indeed two categories of people in the US – those above the law and the rest of us.  And while there are, of course, those two categories of people – Bronfman never did anything to serve the deep state or the uber wealthy who own and control much of the government. She’s expendable. Much like Burke, she will take the fall. Unlike Burke, who knew which side he was on – Clare doesn’t and despite her money she won’t be able to buy her way out of it.

As for Burke, the deep state will feel they have done him full service. It shall so happen that he can feed Clare alternate dishes of hope and despair – billable in multiple hours – at $2000- $5,000 per hour – and he’ll make as much as he can prior to indictment and quite possibly a hell of a lot more – after she is indicted.

In any event, Burke won’t lose a minute of sleep if Bronfman is indicted. He and the rest of the deep state will be able to point to Clare Bronfman and say “You see- no one is above the law in America.”

And, in Burke’s case, get paid for it too.

Image result for clare bronfman
Turnabout is Fair Play: So many times Clare Bronfman headed into court to use her enormous wealth and the presumption that such a member of the elite class would not perjure herself to destroy victims of the NXIVM cult. Here she is walking with one of her attorneys – William Savino – into court to destroy an enemy – likely with Savino’s aid in suborning perjury. Next time however we see that vicious Miss Bronfman with an attorney – don;t be surprised is she is the defendant and not the plaintiff.

After resigning, Burke went into private practice.  He seems to me the best pre-indictment legal choice money could buy for Bronfman.  He carries a cache with him. The imprimatur that he can go over the EDNY’s heads. He took the fall, fell on his sword, by resigning for the whole Department of Justice and in effect ended the public curiosity over the investigation into Fast and Furious – a most corrupt black op-fundraising scheme.  There is much Burke might have said to protect himself and expose the underbelly of this murderous scheme.  Indeed, the Deep State almost had no choice but to not prosecute him for this very reason. He played along famously, He resigned and kept his mouth shut. They owe him.

Afterward, the DOJ appointed him – despite his ostensible disgrace in having to resign as a US Attorney – to a top advisory board position to the AG himself – Jeff Sessions.  This kind of prestige appointment pays nothing but is a lucrative prop to give confidence to high wealth clients who are considering retaining him. It is presumed influence peddling.

I am guessing that, at the topmost levels of the DOJ, the FBI, the ATF, the CIA and elsewhere, there are decision makers who know they owe Dennis Burke a debt of gratitude for taking the fall for the murders, gun running and money raising and laundering on behalf of various federal agencies – by bringing untold numbers of guns into Mexico and giving/selling them to criminals.

Whether Burke can parlay that into a ‘no bill’ against Bronfman is hard to say. Can he broker a deal where Clare becomes an un-indicted co conspirator? And not be charged?  The problem with this is that everyone knows Clare funded most of the crimes.

If they indict Nancy Salzman and other less affluent NXIVM co conspirators and absolve Clare, it will message the world that the US Department of Justice [with its Orwellian use of the word ‘justice’] is really up for sale.  Which of course it truly is – only Americans are not supposed to know it.

No – I think it’s “either everyone or no one.” Clare and her gang – or let them all go free and be satisfied with only Allison Mack and Keith Raniere.  I think, we are way past the latter. I believe Main Justice DOJ in DC and Main Office IRS have signed off on a Bronfman indictment. It is only a matter of time – maybe days. And for various reasons the EDNY will have to act soon – probably by the end of July for the judge has admonished expedition.

To wit:

MS. PENZA: … As we did tell Your Honor earlier, we do expect — at our last status conference, we do expect a superseding indictment in this case and that there will be additional discovery obligations in accordance with the superseding indictment as well.

THE COURT: So this would be a superseding indictment as to these defendants?

MS. PENZA: As to these defendants — as to these defendants, yes.

THE COURT: And what about the issue of any additional defendants that might come along and whether we would be having one trial or more than one trial in this case?

MS. PENZA: Your Honor, at this time, based on our ongoing investigation and the charges that we do expect to bring in the superseding indictment, which we have made representations to at least Mr. Agnifilo on the phone earlier this week, that we expect to do that within the next month and a half, we would be seeking — the government would expect that the defendants that we seek to charge would be tried at the same time based on the charges that we anticipate bringing.

***

THE COURT: … As a practical matter, if there’s a superseding indictment and that superseding indictment includes other defendants, it’s going to restart the clock anyway and then there’s the question of if some of the people indicted are potentially cooperators, there are all kinds of issues here…. Last time, with all due respect to the government, they said it would be four to six weeks or something like that and we would have a superseding indictment. I thought it was scheduled today, a meeting for today we’d have a better understanding what the timing would be for a trial, but now that’s been pushed back and we’re talking about July or August, right?

MS. PENZA: Yes, Your Honor.

THE COURT: Right. So what I think I ought to do is make a schedule such that we have a status conference in July and we see where we are. And if we have to go ahead with just a trial of two people on October 1st, you can hurry up and make your motions at that point. Does that sound reasonable?

***

For now let us examine the realities. America has a special cadre of men and women who are generally above the law. This includes the very wealthy [who are also above any nation’s laws] and the DC elites and their allies – sometimes referred to as “the Deep State.”  A Bronfman, in the past, would have almost certainly qualified for above the law status. {Which shows how far the family has fallen in just three generations.]  There are many indications that Clare Bronfman will not be treated to such special status.

Dennis Burke will be paid either way.

Primarily, I believe, because the federal [and state] criminal investigation into Bronfman-Raniere is massive and civil actions that may follow will likely be unprecedented and exceedingly likely to make Clare, and maybe her sister, Sara Bronfman, ultimately paupers – or at least women of substantially lower net worth. There may be nothing to protect them. The green light has likely been given to indict Clare and quite possibly Sara Bronfman.

From a standpoint of justice [one of the least of considerations] should Clare Bronfman be indicted? Yes, she should.  It is the only way to prevent her from using her wealth to destroy the lives of more human beings, the only way to cripple the massive coordinated defense strategies of the NXIVM organization, the only way  – to indict her and Sara – to stop the further exploitation of people still under Raniere’s thrall. So, yes, she should be indicted.

She almost has to be indicted. For the DOJ – because this investigation is massive – and others will be indicted – it means they will have to indict her too – even if reluctantly – even if Burke might wish it otherwise – because not to indict her will make the DOJ look utterly and completely corrupt. And no agency – and one without any oversight whatsoever [which is of course the real reason for corruption] can afford to look corrupt – no matter how corrupt they are.

Clare Bronfman – much like Dennis Burke – is a good fall guy [or gal]. She belongs at least ostensibly to the above-the-law set and therefore makes a perfect example to be paraded as “see – no one is above the law.  The law is the law and we can indict even a Bronfman.”

That’s the message. It is of course untrue. The law is only the law when prosecutors want to enforce it. This time however they want to.  For two decades, prosecutors in the Northern District must have known about criminality involving Bronfman-Raniere – but either chose not to enforce the law or were too inept to be able to do so.

Now the plain facts are before us: Bronfman must be charged – not because she did criminal acts – that doesn’t matter – but because she was stupid. She joined a desperado named Keith Raniere and aligned herself with this criminally insane man and stupidly it made worldwide news.  This is not just the local Albany Times Union writing stories. The New York Times and the entire worldwide media is on the case.

Not to charge her [while charging Mack, the two Salzmans, Unterreiner and other obscure individuals] will be prima facie evidence that there are indeed two categories of people in the US – those above the law and the rest of us.  And while there are, of course, those two categories of people – Bronfman never did anything to serve the deep state or the uber wealthy who own and control much of the government. She’s expendable. Much like Burke, she will take the fall. Unlike Burke, who knew which side he was on – Clare doesn’t and despite her money she won’t be able to buy her way out of it.

As for Burke, the deep state will feel they have done him full service. It shall so happen that he can feed Clare alternate dishes of hope and despair – billable in multiple hours – at $2000- $5,000 per hour – and he’ll make as much as he can prior to indictment and quite possibly a hell of a lot more – after she is indicted.

In any event, Burke won’t lose a minute of sleep if Bronfman is indicted. He and the rest of the deep state will be able to point to Clare Bronfman and say “You see- no one is above the law in America.”

And, in Burke’s case, get paid for it too.

Image result for clare bronfman
Turnabout is Fair Play: So many times Clare Bronfman headed into court to use her enormous wealth and the presumption that such a member of the elite class would not perjure herself to destroy victims of the NXIVM cult. Here she is walking with one of her attorneys – William Savino – into court to destroy an enemy – likely with Savino’s aid in suborning perjury. Next time however we see that vicious Miss Bronfman with an attorney – don;t be surprised is she is the defendant and not the plaintiff.

 

 

The Secret of Brainwashed Allison Mack’s Fall From Star to a Man’s Sex Slave-in the name of women’s empowerment

By Frank Parlato
This is succinct – and rings true.
A reader, using the moniker ‘Program blah blah blah’, had this to say about what Keith Raniere’s NXIVM was really about – for him:
it reads:
Who cares how impactful some people found NXIVM’s trainings? The training was a front for Raniere’s illegal enterprise.

NXIVM insiders, deep within Raniere’s inner circle, used the training as a way to gather information on those they could extort what Raniere wanted from them:

  1. Sex
  2. Cheap labor
  3. Commit illegal commands from Master
  4. Money, lots of money
  5. Pony – what could be millions of $$$ from Mexico – to Salzman and Raniere’s hidden SPOTS.
  6. Enrollment efforts to keep their cash cow alive
  7. Devotion for both Salzman and Raniere
  8. Cheap insider Legal Team

The list goes on.

People want to make those who received benefits from the training as a powerful defense for Raniere.

This is not about who benefits from a training program, this is about Raniere and his partners’ illegal actions.

***

The prosecution might wish to show that, despite grandiose claims of NXIVM being an organization developed for the benefit of its students, it had really no other objective than to serve its founder, Keith Raniere’s selfish ends.

In this Raniere had some co conspirators and enablers. Among the chief ones were Nancy Salzman, Karen Unterreiner, Lauren Salzman, Clare Bronfman, Sara Bronfman, Emiliano Salinas, Alejandro Betancourt, Allison Mack and others – some of whom defected.  The ones who defected prior to the fall of Raniere deserve, in my mind and in most case, absolution for their misdeeds and to not be listed as co conspirators – even though they may have done as much or more to build up Raniere’s dark and bifurcated world of deceit [while pretending to be a noble Vanguard] than some of those listed above.

In some cases, the defectors contributed to the fall of Raniere.  In varying degrees, I think all the co conspirators were both victims and victimizers. In my next post, I will try to illustrate this with a rumination on Clare Bronfman – one of the least sympathetic and vicious of the co conspirators.

***

As for the eight things Raniere’s NXIVM was really all about – to him –

  1. Sex
  2. Cheap labor
  3. Commit illegal commands from Master
  4. Money, lots of money
  5. Pony – what could be millions of $$$ from Mexico – to Salzman and Raniere’s hidden SPOTS.
  6. Enrollment efforts to keep their cash cow alive
  7. Devotion for both Salzman and Raniere
  8. Cheap insider Legal Team

— I am pretty sure we can think of a few others – perks the Vanguard received, or attempted to receive, [none of which he seems to be enjoying now].  I think they all boils down to one primary thing, however: NXIVM was run for the benefit of Keith Raniere – and he alone- although he did let co conspirators enjoy to some degree.

Keith Raniere said, “He who has the most joy wins.”
Raniere inside the Mexican Federal Police vehicle moments after his arrest on March 25, 2018.  It is perhaps more than mere speculation that others are winning – for they experienced more joy – when they knew he was arrested and would be less able to do them harm – than he was at this moment. Which suggests that – as Raniere says – joy is a fleeting objective – one day you are winning by having more joy than your terrified adversaries – and on another day- such as March 25, 2018 – you are having a little less joy – and in a world of winning and losing based on joy or the lack thereof – all the days of winning by taking the joy away from others – all culminates in a dark defeat and a future nearly joyless world. It can happen to one – even one who is ‘unified.”

I suspect Raniere derived a sadistic pleasure in watching “fools” worship him [he who had the worst intentions towards them] and see them operate a community, and a mission in his name, where the “fools” [in his eyes, they are ‘fools’] thought they were really trying to do good – who actually really tried to do good – while he manipulated them to serve his selfish ends alone.

And, yes, sure, there were good things in the NXIVM courses. There had to be. Otherwise, the ‘fools’ would not pay tens of thousands for courses – and go into to debt to take more – while trying to recruit others, and serving the mission for free.

But the courses were intended to keep people hooked – that is why the curriculum was endless – no one ever graduates – no one ever achieves the final result — ‘unification’ – he called it.

He would – in the guise of mentor or leader – – worshipful Vanguard – who was thanked in every class for his munificence and brilliance – thwart all their efforts – with many efforts of his own to trip them up along the way — as one judge rightly called his intentions toward Toni Natalie – for their own individual -not Vanguard created – success.

Raniere was constantly creating unnecessary chaos – to prevent success and keep people enslaved. For success for his ‘fools’ was antithetical to Raniere’s goals for Executive Success Programs. Success for them might have meant freedom for his fools/slaves/devotees/students. It was adversarial – but his students did not know it.

He – the man who defines winning as crucial  – even in things that should be shared and not measured in comparatives – such as joy – won by enslaving his followers. Keeping them abject – never seeking their success through equality.

This, I believe, is where the secret of drawing the line between victimizer and victim lies. Many of his most ardent followers were a mix of both.

I think, for instance, that Allison Mack  – in her heart and brain – actually, honestly thought [or was trained to think] his was a mission of goodness – even DOS. I doubt she was ‘out there’ hating the people she recruited. Somewhere she got caught up in his web of lies, and entered a dim world balanced between wanting to keep her fine [and selfish] role with Raniere [procuring him, for example, fuck toys and etc.] and a world – in her head – where a more deeply embedded hypnotic suggestion lay- where she must serve Raniere for his noble mission – which is for the welfare of a troubled and needlessly suffering world.  There were times when his mere voice, a look or a suggestion would reduce her to tears – so eager was she programmed to believe he was sheer goodness.

 

“It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” But what happens when you abrogate being your own captain – and substitute that for the control of a guru or mentor who is a sociopath and whose only goal is to manipulate you? Is this what is meant by brainwashed?
Are Allison Mack and India Oxenberg really – next to Raniere – the two biggest criminals in NXIVM? They were in the criminal complaint against Raniere as co – conspirators #1 and #2  What ratio of victim/victimizer can we ascribe to these two women? Is India 90 percent victim – 10 percent victimizer? Or more, or less. What about Allison Mack?
The extent of people’s adherence to Raniere is epitomized in this picture of Mack jogging i the fall of 2017. While being restricted to an 800 calorie per day diet, Raniere instructed her to jog 30 miles per week. Was it done for her own good or for his?

NXIVM: New Evidence on Stormy Daniels-Wiener-Schneiderman-Raniere- Allison Mack Party in Connecticut

Ben Szemkus – is he telling the truth?

Not to add fuel to the fire, but, as people debate whether Ben Szemkus’ story of meeting Eric Schneiderman, Anthony Wiener, Huma Abedin, Stormy Daniels, James Alefantis, Keith Raniere, Allison Mack, the Bronfman sisters and  Nancy Salzman at a NXIVM mixer in Hamden Connecticut is true or not, a new bit of information comes in.

A NXIVM insider told me there was at least one intensive held in Connecticut around the time of Ben’s story. This NXIVM insider has no connection with Ben, never met him, never saw him. In fact he thought it was unlikely the event Ben described was true – but would not rule it out. he knew however for a fact that around the time Ben allegedly went to a NXIVM mixer – NXIVM was recruiting in Connecticut.

***

Ben contacted Frank Report today to see if he could make contact with a person who left comments under the moniker Donna the Huntress.  Donna claimed to have been at the party but has not revealed her identity.

Ben believes he remembers her. Donna has added to Ben’s story.

Ben’s story about a NXIVM gathering he attended in 2007.

The short version:

Ben came with a girlfriend to the mixer.

There were eight men:

  1. Raniere
  2. Schneiderman
  3. Wiener
  4. Alefantis
  5. A bodyguard for Stormy Daniels
  6. A boyfriend of one of the other girls
  7. A baldish guy [possibly Dr. Brandon Porter]
  8. Ben

There were about 20 women.

  1. Nancy Salzman
  2. Allison Mack
  3. Clare Bronfman
  4. Sara Bronfman
  5. Stormy Daniels
  6. Ben’s girlfriend
  7. The hostess [whose name Ben forgot] She was blond. Ben thinks her grandfather may have been a judge.
  8. About a dozen Yale college girls.

Keith spoke to the Yale girls about becoming nannies and speaking in different languages to train children.

Mack spoke and Stormy spoke to the women.

Eric Schneiderman arrived later and spoke to Ben about “the movement that they were building”.

Keith spent time in a bedroom with lights off with Stormy Daniels and Allison Mack.

Anthony Wiener and wife, Huma Abedin showed up. Wiener “mentioned the NXIVM movement.”

***

Image result for allison mack nude
According to Ben, Allison Mack went into the bedroom with Keith Raniere and Stormy Daniels. The lights went off.

Ben thinks there is a possible Yale and Democrat party connection to NXIVM.  He said that Bill, Hillary and Chelsea all graduated from Yale.

“There is is a small group who are trying to do back flips to try to discredit this story,” Ben said he plans to take a lie detector test to try to prove his story is true. He will videotape his lie detector test and have witnesses there to watch it.

Meantime, Ben said he wants Donna the Huntress to contact him.

Here is what Donna said about the party she claims to have also attended — with Ben:

Image result for stormy daniels slut
Stormy attended a NXIVM party?

Donna the Huntress wrote:

I was at the party and Stormy [Daniels] told me she just came back from the Super Bowl. I spoke to Eric Schneiderman and he was a real gentlemen. I remember Ben offered to sell him some weed. I didn’t buy any. I said to Ben and Eric that I smoke other things but not weed. … I can confirm Allison Mack is not a tranny because I was in the room with Keith, Stormy, Allison and Jan (the hostess )… I was the only black chick there. I came in and out and said, ‘This nanny stuff is bullshit.”

Ben is telling the truth. I don’t remember the pizza guy [Alefantis] but I remember Huma and Keith talking… Huma was trying to channel Keith’s energy. Wiener went into the bedroom with Nancy … I was in the next bedroom and I heard them talking. She was asking him about his childhood and he said he liked to be an exhibitionist when he was a boy and his name ‘Weiner’ made him think of his wiener and he wanted to show it to others to get their admiration. Nancy told him this was why he craved showing it to others: Because people made fun of his name when he was 5 years old.  I should not have listened but I could not help it. He was a congressmen.

Keith had Clare secretly record the conversation, maybe to use it against Wiener. He also filmed Stormy, Jan and Allison. They invited me, but I only watched. Clare wanted to ‘do’ me and I said ‘no.’ There was not as much sex as you might think. Mostly drinking and talking about how great Nxivm was and how children should be taught to have sex at a young age and they would grow up freer.

I could not agree with that, but Keith said in a way that was very edgy … he reminded me. I started masturbating when I was 12. So he said, ‘so what was wrong with having a real cock then?’ and I said he was right and he asked me to relive it with him and I sort of really wanted to try and I felt like he was gaining control of me. But I said no. I had a boyfriend and he said this was not sex, but a healing of childhood hangups.

Wow – I just realized I might have been branded that night….

After Ben left, Elliot Spitzer came to the party with Ashley Dupre – who was just stunning. They were on their way to DC but they had to stop by and see Keith to get some secret tips on sexuality. Keith told Elliot that, when having sex, to always keep his calf length socks on for the warming of the calf and the light pressure [it] would bring [for] extra potency. …  They came in right after Ben left with his girlfriend.

…. Stormy Daniels was very nice and Keith was pretty cool too. He spoke to me about the metaphysical realities of transcendent awareness. At the time I just thought him a nerdy, cute, funny guy who wanted to date a black chick. And I was (and still am) hot. … [based on the people who were there at the party] it suggests Clinton- Podesta and co. were up to their eyeballs in [NXIVM]….

One thing more, Eric Schneiderman is not a racist. He told me I could be his ‘nigga bitch slave’ but he would take care of me and when we went out in public, he’d treat me like a lady. I thought he was kind of cute to say that, but … something … seemed too far fetched. So I passed.

Last word. If anything happens to Ben, it won’t be a suicide or an accident.

Image result for shneiderman sex abuse

Like Keith Raniere, Eric Schneiderman liked to starve his slave women. He also has another thing in common with Raniere – his eyes.

Keith Raniere – you never could tell which eye was looking at you. But you could be sure it was never both.

Final note:

File this under conspiracy theories if you like – but since it involves NXIVM, it is part of our beat.

I think it is fair to give it a complete airing.

Meantime Anthony Weiner is in Devon Federal Prison in Massachusetts. Ironically he is in the same unit as John Tighe, the former anti-NXIVM blogger that some suspect was framed by Raniere who may have planted child porn on his computer.

Presently Keith Raniere is in MDC. If he is convicted on sex trafficking, he may join Wiener and Tighe in the sex offender unit at Devon.  Eric Scneiderman, who has resigned in disgrace – and faces possible criminal prosecution, has a chance of joining them also – but not as good a chance for at least at present he is under investigation by New York State authorities. But there is a chance he may have had a hand in the NXIVM conspiracy and may be charged for corruption.

 

Ben Szemkus – is he telling the truth?

Not to add fuel to the fire, but, as people debate whether Ben Szemkus’ story of meeting Eric Schneiderman, Anthony Wiener, Huma Abedin, Stormy Daniels, James Alefantis, Keith Raniere, Allison Mack, the Bronfman sisters and  Nancy Salzman at a NXIVM mixer in Hamden Connecticut is true or not, a new bit of information comes in.

A NXIVM insider told me there was at least one intensive held in Connecticut around the time of Ben’s story. This NXIVM insider has no connection with Ben, never met him, never saw him. In fact he thought it was unlikely the event Ben described was true – but would not rule it out. he knew however for a fact that around the time Ben allegedly went to a NXIVM mixer – NXIVM was recruiting in Connecticut.

***

Ben contacted Frank Report today to see if he could make contact with a person who left comments under the moniker Donna the Huntress.  Donna claimed to have been at the party but has not revealed her identity.

Ben believes he remembers her. Donna has added to Ben’s story.

Ben’s story about a NXIVM gathering he attended in 2007.

The short version:

Ben came with a girlfriend to the mixer.

There were eight men:

  1. Raniere
  2. Schneiderman
  3. Wiener
  4. Alefantis
  5. A bodyguard for Stormy Daniels
  6. A boyfriend of one of the other girls
  7. A baldish guy [possibly Dr. Brandon Porter]
  8. Ben

There were about 20 women.

  1. Nancy Salzman
  2. Allison Mack
  3. Clare Bronfman
  4. Sara Bronfman
  5. Stormy Daniels
  6. Ben’s girlfriend
  7. The hostess [whose name Ben forgot] She was blond. Ben thinks her grandfather may have been a judge.
  8. About a dozen Yale college girls.

Keith spoke to the Yale girls about becoming nannies and speaking in different languages to train children.

Mack spoke and Stormy spoke to the women.

Eric Schneiderman arrived later and spoke to Ben about “the movement that they were building”.

Keith spent time in a bedroom with lights off with Stormy Daniels and Allison Mack.

Anthony Wiener and wife, Huma Abedin showed up. Wiener “mentioned the NXIVM movement.”

According to Ben, Allison Mack went into the bedroom with Keith Raniere and Stormy Daniels. The lights went off.

Ben thinks there is a possible Yale and Democrat party connection to NXIVM.  He said that Bill, Hillary and Chelsea all graduated from Yale.

“There is is a small group who are trying to do back flips to try to discredit this story,” Ben said he plans to take a lie detector test to try to prove his story is true. He will videotape his lie detector test and have witnesses there to watch it.

Meantime, Ben said he wants Donna the Huntress to contact him.

Here is what Donna said about the party she claims to have also attended — with Ben:

Stormy attended a NXIVM party?

Donna the Huntress wrote:

I was at the party and Stormy [Daniels] told me she just came back from the Super Bowl. I spoke to Eric Schneiderman and he was a real gentlemen. I remember Ben offered to sell him some weed. I didn’t buy any. I said to Ben and Eric that I smoke other things but not weed. … I can confirm Allison Mack is not a tranny because I was in the room with Keith, Stormy, Allison and Jan (the hostess )… I was the only black chick there. I came in and out and said, ‘This nanny stuff is bullshit.”

Ben is telling the truth. I don’t remember the pizza guy [Alefantis] but I remember Huma and Keith talking… Huma was trying to channel Keith’s energy. Wiener went into the bedroom with Nancy … I was in the next bedroom and I heard them talking. She was asking him about his childhood and he said he liked to be an exhibitionist when he was a boy and his name ‘Weiner’ made him think of his wiener and he wanted to show it to others to get their admiration. Nancy told him this was why he craved showing it to others: Because people made fun of his name when he was 5 years old.  I should not have listened but I could not help it. He was a congressmen.

Keith had Clare secretly record the conversation, maybe to use it against Wiener. He also filmed Stormy, Jan and Allison. They invited me, but I only watched. Clare wanted to ‘do’ me and I said ‘no.’ There was not as much sex as you might think. Mostly drinking and talking about how great Nxivm was and how children should be taught to have sex at a young age and they would grow up freer.

I could not agree with that, but Keith said in a way that was very edgy … he reminded me. I started masturbating when I was 12. So he said, ‘so what was wrong with having a real cock then?’ and I said he was right and he asked me to relive it with him and I sort of really wanted to try and I felt like he was gaining control of me. But I said no. I had a boyfriend and he said this was not sex, but a healing of childhood hangups.

Wow – I just realized I might have been branded that night….

After Ben left, Elliot Spitzer came to the party with Ashley Dupre – who was just stunning. They were on their way to DC but they had to stop by and see Keith to get some secret tips on sexuality. Keith told Elliot that, when having sex, to always keep his calf length socks on for the warming of the calf and the light pressure [it] would bring [for] extra potency. …  They came in right after Ben left with his girlfriend.

…. Stormy Daniels was very nice and Keith was pretty cool too. He spoke to me about the metaphysical realities of transcendent awareness. At the time I just thought him a nerdy, cute, funny guy who wanted to date a black chick. And I was (and still am) hot. … [based on the people who were there at the party] it suggests Clinton- Podesta and co. were up to their eyeballs in [NXIVM]….

One thing more, Eric Schneiderman is not a racist. He told me I could be his ‘nigga bitch slave’ but he would take care of me and when we went out in public, he’d treat me like a lady. I thought he was kind of cute to say that, but … something … seemed too far fetched. So I passed.

Last word. If anything happens to Ben, it won’t be a suicide or an accident.

Like Keith Raniere, Eric Schneiderman liked to starve his slave women. He also has another thing in common with Raniere – his eyes.

Keith Raniere – you never could tell which eye was looking at you. But you could be sure it was never both.

Smart– Anthony Wiener liked to photograph himself and share it with others. But was he at a party with Keith Raniere?

Latest guests named to the party — Eliot Spitzer and Ashley Dupre

***

Final note:

File this under conspiracy theories if you like – but since it involves NXIVM, it is part of our beat.

I think it is fair to give it a complete airing.

Meantime Anthony Weiner is in Devon Federal Prison in Massachusetts. Ironically he is in the same unit as John Tighe, the former anti-NXIVM blogger that some suspect was framed by Raniere who may have planted child porn on his computer.

Presently Keith Raniere is in MDC. If he is convicted on sex trafficking, he may join Wiener and Tighe in the sex offender unit at Devon.  Eric Scneiderman, who has resigned in disgrace – and faces possible criminal prosecution, has a chance of joining them also – but not as good a chance for at least at present he is under investigation by New York State authorities. But there is a chance he may have had a hand in the NXIVM conspiracy and may be charged for corruption.

 

NXIVM Love Story: Kirsten Gillibrand’s Father and Stepmother Fell in Love Because of Sex Slave Cult

By Frank Parlato

US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand [D-NY] has a well known and powerful political father from the state capitol, Albany, New York. His name is Doug Rutnik. What is not widely known is that Doug worked for the sex slaver cult of NXIVM — about a dozen years ago.

NXIVM hired Doug as a consultant for $25,000 a month. Among his duties was to have weekly dinners with NXIVM president Nancy Salzman. At the time, NXIVM leader Keith Raniere was interested in securing indictments against former girlfriend, Toni Natalie and cult de-programmer, Rick Ross. Doug was unsuccessful in serving up the indictments Raniere craved.
Doug Rutnik with daughter Kristen Gillibrand

During the four months he was consulting for NXIVM, Doug introduced his younger [second] cousin, Gwen Bellcourt, an attorney, to the cult.  Doug initially asked Gwenn to take a 5-day intensive to determine if NXVIM needed a license as an educational institution.  Being bright, attractive and ambitious, Gwenn was targeted by Raniere for inclusion in the high rank of the cult.  Salzman, a master hypnotist, spent an enormous amount of time with Gwenn. Raniere wanted her to become NXIVM’s inside attorney.
After the first course, she became enamored with NXIVM. She took another 5 -day course, then another. As soon as Gwenn was indoctrinated into the cult, Raniere decided they no longer needed Rutnik.  Nancy claimed Doug sexually harassed her. Raniere demanded Doug pay the entire four months of payments back. He refused. NXIVM sued him, threatening to ruin his reputation by exposing the scandal in court filings which are public record.  Doug paid NXIVM $100,000 as per the terms of an out-of-court settlement.  He and NXIVM signed a confidentiality agreement promising never to reveal the agreement. (Someone leaked the agreement.}
A Match Made in NXIVM
Meantime, Doug discovered his cousin, Gwenn, was deeply immersed, spending lots of money on what some believe are nothing more than brainwashing courses. She was engaged to be married when she first started taking NXIVM courses.
Part of the NXIVM curriculum is for women to list all the advantages of having her partner suddenly die. Gwenn soon realized that her engagement was a sham. She belonged with NXIVM – born to be free and single – so she could learn all they could teach. She ended her engagement and signed up for more classes.
A lifelong politico, Doug had decades of brokering backroom deals. He decided to work behind the scenes to get his cousin out of NXIVM. She did not want to leave. She loved NXIVM. They loved her. She declared Keith was wonderful and Nancy was like a second mother.
Doug was determined. He felt a flush of something new and noble inside him. His heart quickened; his pulse raced; his gate accelerated, as he contrived to meet Gwenn on any pretext – to get her out of the cult.
He was dapper, a handsome older man –wise and urbane. Though she was an attorney, she was just putty in NXIVM’s hands.
It didn’t take long for Gwenn to realize she had competing interests – the love bombing of the NXIVM community – the mentorship of lovely Nancy and occasional glimpses of Keith himself – who they called Vanguard – versus an attentive, wealthy, sophisticated, powerful older cousin who she had always admired and who had suddenly become her best friend.
There was more:  Keith, after all, if she were to rise in NXIVM, would demand her complete sexual fidelity to him – and she would be one of his harem. Her cousin – no, he was not only her cousin – he was a man too – – was openly trying to get her away from Keith.  No – she had to stop thinking about it.  She dare not say it – even to Prefect Nancy – in an exploration of meaning therapy [that some say is a NXIVM technique to get blackmail material on members.]  It was wrong in the eyes of the world to think of her older cousin as a man. But then again, what Keith wanted was equally scandalous. He taught that all sexual mores rules – even laws about sex were society’s contrivances, designed to keep people from experiencing joy.
At first, for Doug, it was a challenge, and revenge for being treated so badly by the cult. But months of trying to rescue her, had put her foremost in his mind. And for Gwenn, his solicitude and caring about her – put him again and again in her mind.
Then one night perhaps he held her hand – as an older cousin – giving her advice, but instead of removing his hand, he kept it a moment longer than should a cousin, and she too did not pull away. It was moment passing sweet and tender.
Then perhaps one night when he kissed her goodnight, and held her in his arms – instead of a kiss on the cheek, – their eyes met then their lips.  Doug turned and left – no longer a cousin.  He was a man in her eyes.
Doug had kissed many women. A kiss was nothing. He had no right to kiss her that way. But, if he could get Gwenn away from NXIVM, he would kiss her again.
All night long, Gwenn’s thoughts were mostly on Doug and not so much on her Vanguard or Prefect.
Still, she was torn. Gradually it came over both of them this realization of how much they had grown to mean to one another. Doug had morphed from concerned cousin to a man with evident amorous intentions.  Yet Doug was insistent as he was ardent. She must break away from NXIVM. Would she marry him? Yes, if she left. She agreed. Doug got her out. She told Prefect who told Vanguard.
Another one escaped – because of romance, Vanguard no doubt opined. Prefect likely argued that she should have known better to try to find joy in a some monogamous relationship. And maybe Vanguard waxed philosophic, “Knowing what to do is useless without the emotional strength to do what you know.”
In any event, Doug Rutnik did what few were ever successful in doing – he successfully de-programmed Gwenn and married her too and they lived happily ever after without Prefect or even Vanguard or Gwenn getting branded.
The end.
***
Now fast forward to November, 2017, about a month after the New York Times and other media outlets reported on NXIVM – as the secretive cult that brands women.
When asked by columnist Richard Johnson for Page Six, if she knew anything about NXIVM, US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, through a spokesman, answered she “never heard of this group until she recently read about them in the newspaper.”

I began to consider if this could be true. NXIVM is located in Albany, Gillibrand’s hometown. Almost everybody in Albany knew about NXIVM. The cult was featured in scores of front page stories in the Albany Times Union – since 2003.  If Gillibrand can read – and I am told she can –  how could she have missed 15 years of Times Union stories?

On top of that, her father Doug Rutnik- as related above – worked for NXIVM, wound up being sued by them and paid $100,000 as settlement. And on top of that, Kirsten’s cousin [now stepmother] Gwenn was involved in the cult and her father went through a lot of effort to rescue her; it sparked their romance and marriage.

But Kirsten says she never heard of NXIVM.

With that ability to lie, Kristen probably thinks she’ll make a great president – for there are no people like the Americans who love so much to be lied to by their leaders.  It is the one land on earth where lying is not a disqualification for any office however exalted.  In this, one sees a consonance with the teachings of the Vanguard and his embracing of the Luciferian or sociopath – as the best leader for our sheeple – such as he is himself.

Nice going, Kirsten – tho your father and stepmother got out – you learned the greatest lesson of the Vanguard – even if inadvertently – all too well.  I mean how would it have hurt you to make the candid admission – my father once worked there and found it evil and left and took my stepmother out with him?

No Kirsten  had to lie. She never heard of them – not until she read about them in the newspaper recently – she said, her nose waxing larger each time she said it. It is a ponderous nose.

Actress Kristanna Loken Threatens to Sue Over Report on Her Role in Allison Mack’s Sex Cult

By Frank Parlato

Taking a page out of Keith Raniere’s playbook, actress Kristanna Loken has threatened to sue me unless I take down a story I published about her.  That story is “Terminator 3 Star Kristanna Loken revealed as part of NXIVM – Raniere may be her baby daddy”

In the story, I asserted that, according to sources:

  1. Loken is a staunch Nxivm follower.
  2. She attended Jness Track #11 in Albany, in October 2017.
  3. She stayed with DOS slave Vany Huber in Clifton Park, a few doors from Keith Raniere.
  4. When she first met him, she had sex with Raniere in his sex lair.
  5. About nine months later, she gave birth to a son named Thor. She has not revealed the identity of the father.
  6. Raniere claimed to followers, Loken had sex on the first night they met and loved to tell polyamorous stories about her.
  7. Loken appears in an online video endorsing Raniere’s teachings.
  8. In her video, Loken says, through Raniere’s teachings, she “found out who and what I am all about.”
  9. Alleged sex-trafficker Allison Mack appears on the same website endorsing Raniere.

Three days after I published the story [April 7, 2018], I received an email from Jordan D. Grotzinger of Greenberg Taurig [one of the world’s largest law firms]. Here is the PDF of the letter

Below is the text version.

Greenberg Traurig

RE: Loken v. Parlato, et al.

Dear Mr. Parlato:

This law firm is litigation counsel to Kristanna Loken. We understand that you own and/or control the websites artvoice.com and frankreport.com, which published false and defamatory information concerning Ms. Loken in articles dated April 7, 2018.

We demand that you immediately remove all references to Ms. Loken on your websites and cease and desist from making any future false and/or defamatory statements about Ms. Loken in any forum. In addition, you must confirm in writing by reply to my e-mail within 24 hours that you have done so.

The false and defamatory statements against Ms. Loken include, among other things, (1) statements alleging Ms. Loken’s participation in a “sex slave cult,” (2) statements that Ms. Loken attended an “advanced secret women class,” (3) statements
regarding the identity of the father of Ms. Loken’s child, and (4) various false accusations regarding Ms. Loken’s sexual history.

The apparent purpose of these articles is to drive traffic to your websites through “clickbait” by defaming Ms. Loken.

Your false statements constitute actionable defamation of Ms. Loken, and were plainly intended to harm her reputation and business in the entertainment industry.

This matter is of serious concern to our client. There is still a chance for you and your businesses to avoid  costly litigation and a substantial judgment against you. You and your companies, agents, representatives, affiliates, and all others directly or indirectlyinvolved in the posting of defamatory information must immediately and permanently cease and desist from any and all such further conduct and remove all references to Ms. Loken from the websites you own and/or operate. Specifically, p ursuant to California Civil Code § 48a, our client hereby demands that you immediately and permanently cease and desist from any reference to Ms. Loken on artvoice.com, frankreport.com, or any other website, location, forum or medium under your control. Moreover, asmentioned, you must confirm removal of the offending material within 24 hours from now, by reply to my e-mail.

personally. I assure you that you will deeply regret any noncompliance for a long time.

Ms. Loken reserves all rights and claims, including, without limitation, those regarding any proliferation of your defamatory articles, which is more likely to occur the longer the defamatory content remains online.

Sincerely,

Jordan D. Grotzinger

Naturally, I do not want to publish false and defamatory information. Neither do I want to “deeply regret any noncompliance for a long time.” I double checked with sources, spoke with new sources, and updated the story with more information. Some new information I uncovered I withheld so as to not further embarrass Loken.

I then called Loken’s lawyer and informed him I would keep the story up.  He said he would sue.  I said I look forward to discovery. He said it would cost me a lot of money.  I said he might check with his client – for she may not be telling him the full story. I kept the story up. I have not been sued – yet.

So why write about it now? 

Before the lawyer’s email, I was not planning to write more about Loken. Still, her attempt to silence me, [Raniere-style] should not be answered with “compliance” but defiance. It requires putting her threat of a lawsuit on the record.  When and if she sues, I will post that on the website. And discovery I will also post.

I recently published a story about an athlete who was a NXIVM member – in the few hours it was online it was getting plenty of traffic. He called. He did not threaten. He asked me to remove his story because it would hurt him and his family. I took the story down.  As a matter of principle, I never take posts down based on threats.

I am not done with Bronfman-Raniere yet.

Loken said the teachings of Raniere brought ‘joy’ to her life.

Naturally, I do not want to publish false and defamatory information. Neither do I want to “deeply regret any noncompliance for a long time.” I double checked with sources, spoke with new sources, and updated the story with more information. Some new information I uncovered I withheld so as to not further embarrass Loken.

I then called Loken’s lawyer and informed him I would keep the story up.  He said he would sue.  I said I look forward to discovery. He said it would cost me a lot of money.  I said he might check with his client – for she may not be telling him the full story. I kept the story up. I have not been sued – yet.

So why write about it now? 

Before the lawyer’s email, I was not planning to write more about Loken. Still, her attempt to silence me, [Raniere-style] should not be answered with “compliance” but defiance. It requires putting her threat of a lawsuit on the record.  When and if she sues, I will post that on the website. And discovery I will also post.

I recently published a story about an athlete who was a NXIVM member – in the few hours it was online it was getting plenty of traffic. He called. He did not threaten. He asked me to remove his story because it would hurt him and his family. I took the story down.  As a matter of principle, I never take posts down based on threats.

I am not done with Bronfman-Raniere yet.

Loken said the teachings of Raniere brought ‘joy’ to her life.

121 Mexican Candidates Killed this Election Season

According to Telesur there have been 121 political candidates in Mexico this last campaign season.
This might explain why Mexican mainstream media has been a little shy about writing too much about NXIVM – considering the ties it has with Emiliano Salinas, son of the brutal and murderous former president of Mexico, Carlos Salinas.
One Mexican journalist from one of the largest media outlets told me personally that if Carlos Salinas knew he was going to write about his son and NXIVM, Carlos would have him killed.
At the time I thought he was being melodramatic. But the story below makes me reconsider.
Carlos Salinas has a high turnover in friends. One day he meets a guy and then he never sees him again.
Here is the English translation of the story. 

Fernando Angeles Juarez, the mayoral candidate for the Democratic Revolution Party in Ocampo, was gunned down leaving his hotel Posada del Bosque in the state of Michoacan. Angeles died at the scene and no suspects have yet been identified.

His death brings the number of politicians murdered since September 2017 to 121, making this the most violent electoral season in Mexico’s history.

Hours before, Omar Gomez Lucatero, an independent candidate for mayor of Aguililla in Michoacan, was murdered Wednesday night next to the local cemetery, close to a military barracks.

The governor of Michoacan vowed to carry out detailed investigations to find the people responsible.

“I express my firm compromise to find the people responsible of the murder of Omar Gomez Lucatero, a mayoral candidate for the Aguililla municipality, in events that took place a few moments ago, and bring them to justice.”

According to local newspapers, Gomez was shot dead exiting his home in Las Palomas community, in Tierra Caliente. The region is located between the states of Mexico, Guerrero and Michoacan, and is plagued with criminal organizations, including the Jalisco Nueva Generacion and the Nueva Familia Michoacana cartels.

In a video uploaded to social media, the cousin of Gomez Lucatero says an armed group arrived at the candidate’s house and forced everybody to leave before executing him. He blames the local candidate of the Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI), Osvaldo Maldonado, for the murder.

Gomez was running as an independent candidate after he left the PRI. He became the mayor of Aguililla shortly afterward in 2014 when Jose Cruz Valencia was arrested and had to leave office.

Angeles and Gomez are the latest victims of attacks against local politicians running for office in the upcoming elections. Similar attacks recently killed Alejandro Chavez Zavala, who was running for mayor of Taretan, and Miguel Amezcua Manzo, aspiring town councilor of Santiago Tangamandapio, both in Michoacan state.

Chavez and his wife, Mary Dimas, were shot by an unknown assailant driving a black Ford Lobo while leaving the city following a campaign event. Alejandro’s brother, Julio Chavez Zavala, took his place in the presidential race.

According to consulting firm Etellekt, there have been 121 murders and 400 attacks against politicians since September 2017. Out of the murdered, 29 were precandidates and 16 candidates, and 80 of them belonged to opposition parties. The rest were mayors, former mayors, militants, social leaders, councilors or representatives.

The same firm also recorded 351 murders against non-elected government officers.

Mexican Sex-Slaver Cult Leader Emiliano Salinas Writes Op-ed Against Trump: ‘A Crime Against Humanity’

Emiliano Salinas, the son of former president Carlos Salinas, is best known for his Mexican operations of the sex slaver cult NXIVM and his leveling false charges of extortion against NXIVM defectors.
He has written an op-ed on his own website about Crimes Against Humanity and Donald Trump.
Below is the English translation of Salinas’ Spanish op-ed.

By Emiliano Salinas

The immigration policy of US President Donald Trump is, in addition to being repudiated, a clear example of one of the most aggressive cancers that humanity lives today.

Separating families, causing one of the deepest pains that can be experienced, is reprehensible in times of war. In times of peace and prosperity, with the excuse that is, it is aberrant, inadmissible and an offense to the whole humanity.

The argument that a country needs borders or is not a country, as a justification to carry out actions worthy of the concentration camps in World War II, is simply abhorrent.

Wanting to make a waterproof border for people while staying perfectly permeable for weapons and drugs must outrage us as Mexicans and also as members of the human species. And it is imperative to raise your voice and condemn the abuses that are being committed against Mexicans and Central Americans, but above all human beings, children, mothers.

The term “migrant,” in addition, is something that exists only in our minds. In reality there are no migrants, neither Mexicans nor Americans, nor countries, nor borders. In reality there are people, there are human beings, and this is a crime that is committed by human beings against human beings, and that shows the deterioration of human solidarity, an indispensable requirement for what we call civilization to have viability. We are attacking the best we have as a species. This should worry us all. Absolutely everyone!

When labels are more powerful than reality, any atrocity against people, especially the most vulnerable, can be justified. When labels blind us, humanity is lost.
