Are the women who criticize Raniere telling the truth?

August 15, 2017 0

Several women have criticized Keith Raniere.

Kristen Keeffe was Keith Raniere’s top assistant, a member of his inner circle, strategist for his legal quests to punish women he declared war on and is the mother of his child, a child he never acknowledged, a child he told Keeffe to lie about and deny was his son..

Keeffe also lived with Raniere along with other women of his harem during the early 2000’s.

Keeffe says, “It was just Keith doing what he does, which is committing fraud and lying, and thinking he’s not going to get caught.” read more

Reader explains how NXIVM trainers use covert hypnosis techniques 

August 15, 2017 0

They believe in neutro-linguistic programming (NLP), which in this case would be Ericksonian covert-hypnosis.  The first steps are for the controller to converse with you, preferably seated side by side, and subtly match your body language, which apparently goes a long way toward making most people trust the controller.  Then it escalates to things like shoulder taps, often in the context of a joke.rsanny 7  Eventually you feel like you have known the controller forever and are very much at ease with him.  Keith is supposed to be a master of this stuff. read more

Bronfman, Raniere Need Investigating Themselves

Keith Raniere

Hacking into people’s emails, phone records, bank accounts, bribing Mexican judges and politicians, massive tax evasion, secreting $http://southbuffalonews.com0 million into the US in cash from Mexico, bringing illegal aliens across the border at Niagara Falls, then imprisoning them, allegations from victims of statutory rape, at least two suicides, engaging in a classic Klein Conspiracy, with more than 60 corporate entities and scores of shifting bank accounts, paying dozens of employees’ salaries and telling them not to pay income taxes – and even a possible admission of having people killed — all these allegations and more are on tap as we report on the instigator of the federal investigation into my affairs – the leader of a dangerous cult called NXIVM, a man named Keith Raniere and his wealthy followers, the Seagrams’ heirs, Clare and Sara Bronfman. read more

Reader has Questions about writer’s role in NXIVM

August 15, 2017 0

Having evidently read several of my posts on NXIVM, a reader asks:

How did they try to control your mind?

It sounds like you were allowed close enough to the inner circle to be able to see at least the sex-charged nature of NXIVM, if not the criminality.

Were there other non-ESPians living in “company housing” like you were?

Some of his lawyers perhaps?

Did they also catch on to the sex?

How did they get treated?

Were they at least sympathetic to the great “ethical” program of NXIVM?

Did they seem to be under Keith’s control? read more

Why do people criticize Keith Raniere?

Keith Raniere, wending his way along the path of life, suing and pursuing  enemies, while preaching love and ethics.
Keith Raniere, wending his way along the path of life, suing and pursuing enemies, while preaching love and ethics.

So what should we make of the constant criticism of Keith Raniere?

He has said that “the brighter the light, the more the bugs” in reference to his many critics.

Is it possible that the gentle Raniere is misunderstood?

Are the teachings of love and ethics that dominate his published writings the real Raniere?

He has said, “Humans can be noble. The question is: will we put forth what is necessary?”

“Each rise, each act of human excellence raises mankind to new heights. Each fall, each act of destruction is a mindless regression,” his NXIVM philosophy reads. “While many have sensed a need to break away from the primitive patterning that keeps us from a path of continuous progression, few have thought it possible.” read more

Where is law enforcement? Keeffe laid out blueprint of Raniere crimes in recorded talks and emails with Bouchey

August 15, 2017 57

In NXIVM’s effort to destroy Barbara Bouchey – making a criminal computer trespass case out of a molehill  visit to a social media website – while ignoring a mountain of potential evidence against NXIVM founder Keith Raniere – certain facts have come to light.

Perhaps the time has come – if it has not come already – for authorities to investigate the Bronfman/Raniere organization.

The ironies are hard to ignore: Almost every crime the Bronfman/Raniere organization alleges against others are crimes ex NXIVM members allege they, themselves, have committed. read more

Opinion: Raniere is not evil; he is a frightened child

August 15, 2017 36

A reader asked me if I despised Keith Raniere.

No, of course I don’t.

Candidly – and it is just my opinion – I have come to see Raniere as a tormented soul.

Asked to share my opinion, it is this (and I hope the reader will not be offended by the purely opinionated aspect of this post):

One should feel sympathy for Keith Raniere for the terror that must haunt him.


He is frightened, and, with Bronfman millions at his disposal, he tries to buy away his fears – sometime with unbelievable cruelty (Barbara Bouchey, Toni Natalie) – at other times with immature foolishness (The Dalai Lama, suing Rick Ross) and sometimes with either dishonest or incredibly stupid intentions (commodities, real estate scams, loss of $http://southbuffalonews.com00 million). read more

Reader: Working Families Party Conduit Bronfmans use to funnel money

August 15, 2017 49

We received this note from a reader:

The Working Families Party (WFP) is the conduit that Sarah and Clare Bronfman have used to funnel money to Albany County District Attorney P. David Soares.  It is also the conduit that several members of their family have used to funnel money to a wide variety of political candidates: e.g., Hillary Clinton; Bill DeBlasio; etc.

With all of the cash that Keith Raniere has on hand – and with the high-level contacts that NXIVM now has in Democratic circles (e.g., Richard Mays) – they may also be making political contributions that way. read more
