The Most Disturbing Details From the NXIVM Sex-Cult Case
By Amanda Arnold@aMandolinz

NXIVM, an organization that allegedly brainwashed and blackmailed women into being “sex slaves,” has crumbled in the past year. In March 2018, its founder, Keith Raniere, was arrested and charged with sex trafficking for his role in the group, which then set off a domino effect: In the ensuing months, federal prosecutors would go on to charge more and more people for their alleged involvement, some of whom have now begun to plead guilty. The picture painted of NXIVM in media reports is disturbing, to say the least: that the purported “self-help organization” was instead a front for a sex cult that branded numerous female members with Raniere’s initials and coerced them into “master-slave” relationships.

While the case is far from over — Raniere, for example, has yet to go to trial — the past few months have seen the emergence of some truly abhorrent details pertaining to the case, relating to everything from enslavement to child pornography.

Here’s what we know so far.

Co-founder Nancy Salzman admitted in court that she tracked and monitored women within NXIVM.
Nancy Salzman, who was the first person involved in the case to plead guilty to her single charge of racketeering conspiracy, tearfully confessed in court on March 13 that she tracked and monitored the usernames and passwords of suspected moles in the group to ensure they weren’t leaking details about the group’s inner workings. She also admitted that she ordered others to “destroy video tapes” that documented Raniere’s “teachings.”

“I want you to know I am pleading guilty because I am, in fact, guilty,” she said through sobs. “I accept that some of the things I did were not just wrong, but sometimes criminal.”

Prosecutors believe that founder Keith Raniere had sex with a 15-year-old girl, who later became his first “slave.”
At a Brooklyn courthouse on March 14, Raniere — who was already facing forced labor, wire fraud conspiracy, human trafficking, and sex trafficking charges — was hit with an additional charge of child pornography. According to prosecutors, Raniere documented himself engaging in sexual conduct with a 15-year-old girl, who would go on to become his first “slave.” Prosecutors also accused Raniere of having had a sexual relationship with at least one other child, and of possessing child pornography between 2005 and 2018.

Nancy Salzman’s daughter Lauren admitted to keeping a woman as a slave.
On April 2, Lauren Salzman pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy, revealing that she had “knowingly and intentionally harbored” an unnamed woman in a locked room from March 2010 to April 2012; when the woman “did not complete [requested] labor,” Salzman confessed that she threatened to deport her back to Mexico.

Salzman also admitted to being a member of DOS, the internal sorority within NXIVM which prosecutors say was a “master-slave” sex ring. (The group also allegedly branded women with Raniere’s initials.)

Actress Allison Mack “took full responsibility” for her involvement in NXIVM, and notably DOS.
The highest-profile person involved in the case, Smallville actress Allison Mack, pleaded guilty on April 8 to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of racketeering. “I have come to the conclusion that I must take full responsibility for my conduct, and that’s why I am pleading guilty today,” she said through tears. She went on to admit that she was a member of DOS, and said she had attempted to recruit other women into the group. She also said that she coerced women into giving her embarrassing information and photographs, known within the group as “collateral,” in order to blackmail them into going along with NXIVM and Raniere’s demands.

“I’m very sorry for the victims of this case,” she said in court. “I’m very sorry for who I’ve hurt through my misguided adherence to Keith Raniere’s teachings.”

Nxivm prosecutors admit they unknowingly reproduced child porn

Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman is set to plead guilty Friday to charges related to her role in the suspected upstate sex cult Nxivm, according to court documents.

Bronfman, a longtime Nxivm board member and benefactor, is scheduled to appear in Brooklyn federal court before Judge Nicholas Garaufis for the change-of-plea hearing.

The liquor scion has been charged with multiple counts of racketeering conspiracy and conspiracy to commit identity theft, in addition to a single charge of racketeering. It’s unclear what charges she will be pleading guilty to.

The 40-year-old heiress– who used her fortune to fund the group and the whims of its leader, Keith Raniere — is accused of helping Raniere steal email passwords from “perceived enemies,” laundering money to help a non-citizen enter the US and paying off debts Raniere racked up on the credit card of a dead girlfriend.

Bronfman has been out on $100 million bond since her arrest in July 2018, and under the current charges, she faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted.

Also set to plead guilty Friday is the accused Albany-area sex cult’s former accountant, court documents show.
Bookkeeper Kathy Russell faces two counts of racketeering conspiracy for her role in the group.

The expected guilty pleas come just days before troves of potential jurors are due to return to court for more thorough questioning ahead of trial. Opening arguments are expected May 7.

They also follow guilty pleas from “Smallville” TV actress Allison Mack, Nxivm co-founder Nancy Salzman, her daughter Lauren Salzman.

MONEY WILL OUT! CLARE BRONFMAN BUYS HER WAY OUT OF RICO – PLEADS TO IDENTITY THEFT AND HARBORING ILLEGAL — $6 MILLION FINE – FACES A MERE 21-27 MONTHS

If anybody wants to understand the US criminal justice system check this out.

Clare Bronfman, director of operations for NXIVM – which the president of the enterprise, Nancy Salzman, has already admitted was a racketeering enterprise, will face the lightest of sentences when she goes before Judge Nicholas Garaufis for sentencing on July 25.

Isn’t it great to have money?

Village Diane reports

Clare Bronfman was wearing the same outfit she wore many times in court.

She was dressed in a tan shirt, and billowy light blue pants. She wore a gray and blue scarf printed with elephants that I don’t recall seeing her wear before.

She had the same kind of hairstyle, just pulled back in the front end and hanging down in the back.

Before the hearing, which was at 4 pm, she and her lawyers were in the courthouse cafeteria. Then they went to the courtroom, Clare sat hunched over in her chair while waiting for the judge. She may have naturally poor posture, but certainly she was sitting kind of hunched over. Her pointy shoulders were sticking out of her shirt.

She spent most of the time chatting with a female lawyer who had dark blonde or light brown shoulder length hair. Her lead attorney, Mark Geragos, was on his phone for part of the time while waiting for the judge to arrive. Clare was facing away from him speaking to the other lawyer.

At some point, Geragos put away the phone and all three lawyers chatted. Clare looked like a combination of a haggard woman and a lost little girl.

The spectator area slowly filled up and was almost completely filled. At 4:25, Kathy Russell appeared in the courtroom and sat down in the spectator area.

Moira Penza was wearing a black suit and dark pink power heels.

Clare looked nervously as her attorneys went over to the defense table and then she walked over to the defense table to sign things.

She pleaded guilty to to two felonies. The first count was conspiracy to conceal or harbor an illegal alien for financial gain and the second count was fraudulent use of identification.

The judge said, “I have an important question. Are there any promises not in this agreement?” Clare said “no.”

The judge said that count one came with a maximum of 10 years and no minimum and the second count has a maximum of 15 years, no minimum.

The judge said the sentences can run consecutively or concurrently.

NXIVM Sex-Cult Prosecutors Have Evidence Of Illegal Clinton Campaign Contributions For "Political Influence"
US Attorney Richard Donoghue asked a federal judge last month for permission to present a mountain of new evidence in the NXIVM sex-cult trial - including evidence of an "illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign," in the "hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda," according to a March court filing.


"At the suggestion of a political operative, who has since pleaded guilty to an unrelated New York state bribery charge also involving campaign contributions, the contributions were “bundled” and presented to the candidate at a fundraising event attended by conspirators," the filing continues.
(pic 1 related)

And whose "presidential primary campaign" did the group allegedly attempt to buy influence with?

None other than Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to former NXIVM publicist-turned-whistleblower Frank Parlato, who told Big League Politics "I was there, and I knew that the contributions were made by more than a dozen NXIVM members to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign."

At present, the judge overseeing the case has not responded on the case docket.

Founded by accused pedophile Keith Raniere, NXIVM started out as a multi-level-marketing self-help business for people who wanted to "reach their potential" through various courses.

NXIVM's Clinton connections have been known for some time

After being run out of Arkansas in the early '90s by then-Governor Bill Clinton's attorney general on charges of fraud and business deception, Raniere and NXIVM executives emerged a decade later only to donate $29,900 to Hillary Clinton's 2006 presidential campaign a decade later. At least three NXIVM officials are (or were) "invitation-only" members of the Clinton Global Initiative, according to the New York Post.

Meanwhile, NXIVM's 'inner sanctum' turns out to have been sex-cult known as 'DOS' - which Parletto says stands for "dominus obsequious sororium," or "master over the slave women."

Raniere's inner cadre included Seagrams heiresses Clare and Sara bronfman, who joined NXIVM in 2002 and subsequently contributed $150 million of their inheritance to the organization, while Claire bought 80% of Wakaya island off the coast of Fiji for $47 million in 2016, according to Vanity Fair.

Female members of DOS - such as former Smallville actress Allison Mack, would procure women for Raniere - who required that prospective "slaves" upload compromising collateral into a Dropbox account. One such recruit-turned-coach was India Oxenberg - daughter of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, who met with prosecutors in New York in late 2017 to present evidence against Raniere.

Prior to his death, Clare and Sara's father, Seagrams founder and former president of the World Jewish Congress Edgar Bronfman (whose funeral Hillary Clinton spoke at), told Vanity Fair of NXIVM
"I think it's a cult."

A cult which tried to buy favor with Hillary Clinton, allegedly.

Nxivm head allegedly has history of sexual interest in young girls

Yet another woman who was allegedly raped as a child by the leader of the accused sex cult Nxivm could take the stand at his upcoming trial, according to new court documents.

Prosecutors said they want to call the woman, identified in court papers only as “Jane Doe X,” to testify to prove Nxivm leader Keith Raniere had a habit of preying on young girls.

Raniere, 58, is already facing charges of sexual exploitation of a child for the alleged rape of then-15-year-old Jane Doe 2.

The filing claims Raniere had “repeated sexual intercourse” with Doe X when she was just 12 and 13 years old.

“The defendant’s abuse of Jane Doe X and Jane Doe 2 occurred when both victims were around the same age, and Jane Doe X and Jane Doe 2 both had parents who trusted the defendant and left them unsupervised to be tutored or mentored by the defendant and cared for by women in the defendant’s ‘inner circle,'” the court papers read.

“Evidence of the defendant’s sexual involvement with Jane Doe X, in the form of Jane Doe X’s own testimony, is admissible to demonstrate that the defendant ‘has a sexual interest in [teenage girls] and had the intent and desire to commit’ the racketeering acts with which he is accused related to Jane Doe 2.”

Raniere’s lawyer, Marc Agnifilo, said the allegations were unfounded.

“These are allegations that were made and investigated and discounted 20 years ago,” he said. “We don’t think they should play any role at the trial.”

Brooklyn federal court Judge Nicholas Garaufis has yet to rule on the request.

Opening arguments in the case are expected May 7.

Just look at the mugs on those two lawyers (she pleads guilty and I walk away with a big fat check).

If you are looking for criminals, look no further than BAR attorneys and judges.

Just a direct observation from someone who has been repeatedly f*cked over by corrupt lawyers and judges.

Clare has a net worth of 500 million. Maybe this costs her 10 million with attorneys fees.

The average American has 500 bucks so it's like them getting a 10 dollar parking ticket.

Her financial people are probably making at least 10% annually for her though so about 50 million a year. The reality is this doesn't cost her but 20% of her annual salary so to speak. A nice donation to trumps re election campaign and she's out on pardon. Either that or she will do some special home release program where one of her maids will have to wear an ankle bracelet for her and make sure she doesn't leave the house.

He must be very charismatic.

Like somewhere between Rasputin and Charlie Manson.

Pedo Prof Connection and NXIVM Human Experiments

As always the connection to the Cabal is only one degree of separation away. Recently arrested Portland professor Niles Lehman connects to a MAJOR pedo swamp creature billionaire. .. I also talk about a little know aspect of NXIVM - human experimentation.

"Often when you counsel people who are children of what you might call abuse, some little children are perfectly happy with it until they find out what happens later in life," Salzman says, on camera. "They didn't know anything about it was bad, later they grow up and they found out that it was actually something that was bad, in that case is it more society that's abusing them?"



WOW

Society imposes lots of morality on it's citizenry. Some of it good, some not so good. Some works, some doesn't.
you go speeding down the highway at 75 in a 65. No one is around, it's a beautiful day, the sun is shining and everything is safe. All of a sudden the police pull you over to tell you what a horrible person you are for breaking the law and how it's now going to cost you 300 bucks to repent.

Or how about the government decides that nature is a terrible thing and must be poisoned and anyone partaking in nature must be imprisoned. Is that abuse of it's citizenry? Isn't that a crime against humanity?

My personal belief is that 12 is to young to have a relationship with. However, historically, 12-16 was not considered to young so the reality is the woman above does indeed have a point.
Look at ben Carson, the HUD director. His mother married at 13 I think it was and had like 13 kids. I watch a lot of historical documentaries and there are examples of women becoming queens at age 14 and many women getting married at 12-16 years old. It's no longer the norm in our society and thats a decision our politicians have made for us on a state by state basis. 100-300 years ago people were much more mature for their ages and were ready for the real world much sooner. Thanks to our society that has been created for us our children today are now ready for the world by about age 25 or 30.
Although she does bring up a good point I still think this dude just wanted to bang little girls and should have his balls removed. I think in his case it is abuse.
