NXIVM started to punctuate the headlines around the tail end of 2017 onwards. A truly disturbing organisation with allegations of slavery, mind control, and alleged people and even child sex trafficking.
Video version of the article
Originally from its inception, the group was designed to help empower people, grow them spiritually as well as professionally. Strangely roughly 15 years ago disturbing information concerning its methods in enslavement and brainwashing using MK-Ultra / Monarch style programming started to surface. It has taken since then for law enforcement to take notice, and for arrests to be made.
The co-founder Keith Reniere had originally enrolled on a Amway marketing course, which privately educates people to market and sell, health, beauty and home care products. He went on to start Consumers Buyline in 1990 and was later charged with operating a pyramid scheme. Undeterred he teamed up with Nancy Salzman. They both went on to develop human empowerment courses named the Executive Success Program or ESP.
In 1998 both Raniere and Salzman merged their continuing self-development courses into an organisation called NXIVM pronounced ‘Nex-ium’. The organisation has never really disclosed the meaning of the acronym. As the years progressed attendees to their events became more and more high profile. Hosting names such as Richard Branson, hotel billionaire Shiela Johnson, and Ana Cristina Fox a daughter of a former Mexican President.
The strange unorthodox approach of the organisation was inherent from day one, with Raniere demanding people referred to him as ‘Vanguard’ after a character in his favourite childhood computer game, and Salzman going under the alias ‘Prefect’. Reniere was a strong self-promoter made the bold claim to have one of the highest IQ’s in the world. But IQ test he took was a home-based exam, with no controls. He has never offered any documentation to back up his claims. He went as far to say his name was even Guinness book belonging to an elite group of people with superior IQ’s. This statement turned out to be false. He further stated to be able to speak full sentences at the age of one.
NXIVM students were taught that Reniere was the smartest, and most ethical man in the world, as the history and inner workings of NXIVM have been revealed this statement is very far removed from reality.
NXIVM main emphasis was to sell 5-day self-help courses to aspiring millionaires. The courses could cost anywhere between £5,000 to £10,000. As the company grew they started offering executive courses ranging from $25,000 a day to $100,00 for a series of sessions.
The NXIVM website is still very much active and advertises the wide scope of their services from arts entertainment and human expression, child development and education, gender studies, humanitarism and non-violence, ethics, and science and technology. Since the end of the 1990’s 16,000 people are estimated to have participated in NXIVM courses. All participates were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement vowing never to discuss the inner teachings of the courses.
The courses relied on elements of NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming which is a well known behavioural modification technique, which can be positive and beneficial for people. But is also the cornerstone to covert Monarch Programming, a mind control method of the CIA run MK-Ultra. These projects would force individuals to carry out tasks against their will and knowledge. The outcomes were achieved through trauma-based methods after fracturing the mind and developing alternative personalities that can be activated at will by their controllers via trigger words or symbols.
NXIVM growth and establishment was firmly cemented with the eventual involvement and large investment by Clare and Sara Bronfman who are the daughters of Edgar Bronfman Sr, a prominent member of the Bilderberg group. The early Bronfman family were Jewish tobacco farmers, who fled Russia and settled in Canada. Eventually, the family moved into the distribution of Alcohol, the business grew massively during the prohibition era and their close associations with US gangsters. Eventually, Bronfman family went under legitimate company name Seagram. At its height Seagram in the 1990’s was the largest owner of alcoholic beverage lines in the world. Through marriage, the Bronfman dynasty ended up garnering connections with the Rothschild family, which eventually seeded the Bronfman Rothschild organisation which advises rich individuals and their families on retirement plans.
Edgar Bronfman Sr. apparently branded NXIVM a cult even though Edgar himself had attended one of their earlier courses. Through a leaked court document it’s claimed the Bronfman sisters gutted their trust funds of $150 million. $66 million was allegedly used to pay off Ranieres failed stock market trading, along with financing a private jet, and large-scale property investments. The sisters helped NXIVM gain a level of spiritual credibility, by organising a visit of the Dalai Lama. The event was largely attended by NXIVM devotees. Raniere himself was granted a personal blessing by the Dalai Lama.
There have been reports mainly in the alternative media that the Clinton’s were closely associated with the cult organisation. But under closer inspection, these links maybe not as reported. It’s provable that NXIVM executives donated $29,000 dollars to Hillary Clintons 2006 campaign, and that Salzman and the Bronfman sisters were members of the Clinton Global Initiative which is by invitation only after donating at least $15,000 per person for one year. So the connection is there, but how deep is hard to tell?
NXIVM heavily recruited clientele within elites circles of high-end politics and industry. But more revealingly they also targeted young attractive women, particularly wealthy heiresses and actresses. As the organisation grew in sophistication reports surfaced from former members and employees of the NXIVM, the apparent existence of an inner sanctum, led by Raniere himself known as DOS. DOS in Latin stands for ‘Dominus Obsequious Sororium’ or ‘master over the slave women’. The small group is rumoured to have started in 2015, with a rotating cast of around 50 women for Raniere to sleep with. Under the DOS rules Men were allowed to be polyamorous, but women were required to be monogamous. It was further claimed that DOS would help women to overcome their ‘inherent weaknesses’ and ‘overemotional natures’.
Raniere had aspirations to mould and meld NXIVM into a similar institution to Scientology. Like Scientology the recruitment of celebrities is an extremely powerful marketing tool. Some former outed members of DOS include Battlestar Galactia actress Nicki Clyne, India Oxenberg daughter of former Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg and Allision Mack an actress from the TV series Smallville. Mack ended up becoming a very valuable member to the group, and was instrumental to its growth. She was apparently a very talented recruiter, and at one point was trying to befriend Actress Emma Watson. Mack during interviews appeared highly intelligent, sunny and eloquent, but in contrast reports state she was very much the enforcer of the DOS. Readily dishing out harsh corporal discipline to other members if they infringe one of the many rules, or high expectations.
The so-called DOS sisterhood comprised of 6 circles, lead by a master, who would recruit slaves.
Members or slaves were ordered to always recruit and grow their own slave pods, the victims were forced to stop dating, and be on call 24 hours a day for their master, Raniere. This subservient disturbing relationship was exposed in a series of text messages released to the media.
Raniere – “I think it would be good for you to own a f**k toy slave for me, that you could groom, and use as a tool, to pleasure me,” reads one of Raniere’s texts.”
An early 2003 Forbes article started to report on NXIVM’s cult practices:
Detractors say he runs a cult-like program aimed at breaking down his subjects psychologically, separating them from their families and inducting them into a bizarre world of messianic pretensions, idiosyncratic language and ritualistic practices.”
When joining, new slaves had to provide their master naked pictures of themselves along with incriminating information, photos and videos which could be used to blackmail at a later date.
In March 2018 Rolling stone wrote –
“The complaint states that DOS slaves were forced to serve their masters in various “acts of care,” including running errands for them, cleaning their homes and preparing food for them. They were also reportedly forced to perform uncomfortable “acts of self-denial,” such as taking icy showers or “standing for an hour at 4 a.m.”
The document says that slaves were given “assignments” to perform as part of their tenure, and these assignments could include sex with Raniere. Some slaves were also allegedly tasked with following brutally low-calorie starvation diets to remain extremely thin, a physical preference of Raniere’s. The women tasked with having sex with Raniere reportedly believed they risked the release of their collateral if they refused. According to Raniere’s detention memo filed by U.S. Attorney Donoghue, “The government estimates that the defendant has had more than fifty DOS slaves under him.”
The Sun online after gaining access to court documentation, they highlighted the following –
“Keith Raniere is accused of raping girls as young as 12, imprisoning a woman for 18 months because she developed feelings for someone else – and forcing one follower to run into a tree and drink from a puddle.
Leading upto their initiation DOS women would endure 17-hour days of workshops and sleepless nights, gradually they were dislocated and disorientated from any outside family and friends. Victims disclosed that NXIVM’s resident Doctor Brandon Porter forced initiates to watch rape, murder and mutilation videos. These mind control techniques have very much been borrowed from the covert world.”
The Mirror exposed some truly harrowing details of Porters techniques –
“… it has now charged Dr Porter with a number of offences including moral unfitness, gross negligence and gross incompetence…
He allegedly showed cult members video of the four women being murdered and film clips showing an African-American man being stomped by a Nazi, a conscious male, being forced to eat his own brain matter, and a graphic gang rape.”
The New York Post covered the experience of the fright sessions
“Jennifer Kobelt, the former member of the notorious cult whose leaders are accused of brainwashing and blackmailing women into becoming sex slaves, said in her August 2017 complaint that Porter may have performed his “fright study” on as many as 100 people.
“He continued to film my reaction for at least 10 minutes as I just sat there, dry heaving like I was going to puke and crying very hard,” Kobelt, a Canadian actress, said in the complaint to the Health Department, adding that Porter began showing her the violent images without warning.”
Once women had completed the program of brainwashing, they were then inducted into the secretive group.
The New York Times in 2017 reported on the experiences of Sarah Edmondson a former victim –
“… one of the participants, said she had been told she would get a small tattoo as part of the initiation. But she was not prepared for what came next.
Each woman was told to undress and lie on a massage table, while three others restrained her legs and shoulders. According to one of them, their “master,” a top Nxivm official named Lauren Salzman, instructed them to say: “Master, please brand me, it would be an honor.”
A female doctor proceeded to use a cauterizing device to sear a two-inch-square symbol below each woman’s hip, a procedure that took 20 to 30 minutes. For hours, muffled screams and the smell of burning tissue filled the room.
“I wept the whole time,” Ms. Edmondson recalled. “I disassociated out of my body.”
Toini Nathalie was the ex-girlfriend of Raniere, in a 2003 Vanity Fair article she was interviewed –
“During her years with Raniere she was so broken psychologically that, according to court filings, she gave up the care of her child because Raniere had encouraged her to. (…)
He was truly brilliant, she says, but in the way “that brilliance is the closest thing to insanity,” recalling how he had insisted she keep the body of her dead puppy in her garage freezer and look at it daily in order to better deal with death.”
Unfortunately, the violent brainwashing inflicted on individuals may have driven some too suicide. In 2002 Kristen Snyder attended a 16-day intensive course. Kristen at the time was openly gay and lived with a long time partner. Reniere took a special interest in Kristen. He was convinced through personalised therapy he could convert Kristen to be Heterosexual. Its alleged Snyder became pregnant with Kristen baby. She disappeared, her car was found abandoned with the following note attached.
“I attended a course called Executive Success Programs (a.k.a. Nexivm) based out of Anchorage, AK, and Albany, NY. I was brainwashed and my emotional center of the brain was killed/turned off. I still have feeling in my external skin, but my internal organs are rotting. Please contact my parents … if you find me or this note. I am sorry life, I didn’t know I was already dead. May we persist into the future,”
Its thought Kristen went Kayaking and deliberately drowned in the wilds of Anchorage.
There are stories that a young 3-year-old boy was unofficially adopted into the cult after the mother died and was given to them by the Grandfather. Its alleged the boy was being groomed to become Ranieres heir. Raniere had strong views concerning child development. The unnamed boy was reportedly fed a raw diet, and surrounded by 5 nannies, each speaking a different language from Russian, Spanish, Hindi & Chinese. The boy has never been officially found.
This leads us on to one of the most disturbing arms of the NXIVM empire, its supposed educational programme for babies and children. This operation went under the banner ‘Rainbow Cultural Garden’. The elite expensive school had 11 branches around the world including one in London. The course cost parents upwards of $120,000 per year, per child. Up until recently the website and social media accounts were still operating. It’s not known whether the school in the UK is still trading, but for now, the online presence has been deleted, hidden. This is one of the most disturbing revelations especially in light of the mind control activities of DOS, and Raniere’s history of sexual relations with young girls.
What was the true underlying purpose of their child care programme? The same Dr Brandon Porter who used violent trauma-based mind control of rape, murder, and mutilation against its female members, also designed the teaching protocols for the nannies to follow in their own schools.
Its been reported that parents were forbidden to interfere with the multilingual nannies whilst their child was being taught. In the UK the education regulatory body Ofsted was still investigating.
The Sun online interviewed former NXIVM consultant Joseph O’Hara.
he is “amazed” that the operation, which is headquartered in New York, has not been shut down already.
O’Hara, used to work with Nxivm as a consultant between 2003 and 2004, he has filed complaints about the New York branch of Rainbow Cultural Garden with the New York Attorney General and social services.
Huge questions arise, how this has been allowed to continue operating for well over 10 years, it’s unimaginable how many young minds may have been destroyed or currently controlled by their heinous methods. And more disturbingly in the reference to the authorities in the UK and US, why have they singularly only sent school inspectors. This organisation is such a high-level threat to children its very strange that the police haven’t been involved, this inaction feeds the conspiracy of a global coverup due to its connection to monied elites.
Much of the sordid details of DOS and NXIVM was exposed by their former publicist Frank Parlato, who previously worked for NXIVM in 2007, but left after uncovering Raniere’s squandering of $100 of the Bronfman’s money. Parlato was sued by the Bronfmans and later indicted by the IRS, the Brofmans were successful, but the other charges were dropped. Parlato has persistently claimed he is innocent. He’s been on the offensive ever since, after setting up the website Frank Reports, which discloses the continuing saga of NXIVM and DOS.
Although on the face of it appears that NXIVM was a vehicle to accumulate wealth, control and appease Raniere’s sexual appetite. Is there a more official covert reason for the mind control techniques.
On the image board of 4chan an anonymous paralegal source in the US, caused a stir linking the recent suicidal death of Anthony Bourdain with NXIVM. At present there is no evidence to back this up, the only reason I mention it is down to the site Neon Revolt who is incredibly astute at deciphering the boards of 4 and 8chan. so again these allegations could be false. The post is as follows:
NXIVM Celebrity Clients
(Shows picture of Anthony Bourdain)
His name came up on a list of NXIVM clients who asked for underage girls (ages 6-9) so he chose suicide.
This story is being scrubbed.
It’s on paperwork filed with the NY state attorneys office shared with Mr. Bourdain’s lawyers (who are lawyers representing the production studio who has a contract with him)
Keith Raniere’s lawyer’s, in order to keep their client out of prison, are starting to rat out the clients who asked for underage girls to the STATE and the FBI!
Question: how do you know such intimate details
I’m a paralegal, and I’m not disclosing anything that’s not already going to be public information once charges are filed.
Anthony Bourdain would’ve spent life in prison so he chose suicide, but expect other high profile celebrities and politicians to be indicted
His name is still on legal documents, so even with his suicide, the deposition of these documents will prove it.
They are informing anyone (their lawyers) about this who are listed as clients who requested underage prostitution (sex slaves)
The FBI is involved in this.
Time will tell if this is correct, but Anon have found some very strange imagery on his Instagram. The anonymous paralegal went on to name some very prominent celebrities and politicians.
Donald Trump in 2006 is alleged to have had an affair with the porn actress Stormy Daniels. Some have claimed this is a weaponised story to discredit Trump whilst in power. Allegations started to surface on the internet that Daniels was a member of NXIVM, and more specifically DOS. Daniels on her midriff has an extensive wraparound tattoo. Upon closer inspection of her photos there does appear to be a scar in the shape of Raniere’s initials. Although as mentioned earlier, the branding tended to be positioned below the hip area. In her case the branding is above the hip.
This theory could be further be given weight after the surfacing of a 2010 tweet from Daniels.
I think I am about to be initiated into
a gang….or maybe it's a cult. Lol
— Stormy Daniels (@StormyDaniels) February 19, 2010
So if we consider the mind control of young vulnerable women and children it would be prudent to ask are these mind controlled slaves being used in an official capacity. Although this is pure speculation and conjecture it could account for why this group has evaded exposure and criminal charges before if a powerful entity was protecting its operation because of its Covert importance. Frank Parlato appeared on Infowars and interestingly was interviewed by Roger Stone, who in the past had previously lobbied for NXIVM. During the interview, Parlato stated that NXIVM was incredibly good at bribing public officials and somehow subverting and suppressing any kind of investigation by the FBI or any other law enforcement agencies.
Again there are heavy links to the elite world of entertainment and politics, Alison Mack tweeted a picture of Serbian performance artist Marina Abramović who has been linked to John Podesta, Jay-Z and other entertainment and political elites. Abramovic has hosted what she calls spirit cooking dinners which carry cabalistic iconography. Some have exposed these as ritualistic and Lucifarian in nature. And especially with her close connection with John Podesta, some in the alternative media claim she may have links to Pizzagate.
— Allison Mack (@allisonmack) January 23, 2018
Allison Mack was indicted on 20th April but was placed on $5 million bail, she’s was charged with people and child sex trafficking. According to the mainstream media she pleaded her innocence. Although Qanon posts, an alleged online White House whistleblower, states a different tune.
Again Q highlighted her link to Abramovic.
In many ways its hard to tell if Mack was coerced into this situation, or was she complicit and instrumental in designing some of the more immoral practices of the group.
As the revelations became hard to contain, Keith Raniere escaped to Mexico, but was eventually arrested and is now currently awaiting trial. Court documents have disclosed his victim count could be as high as a 1000 people, and with girls as young as 12 years old.
Although the online presence for NXIVM is still active, the organisation as a whole has temporally now ceased operating. Reports state that NXIVM is now being run under the guardianship of the Brofman sisters and Co-Founder Salzman.
In respect to the UK and US and arguably other western countries, the issue of Child and Sex trafficking amongst the monied entertainment and political elite is a systemic problem. Due to the individuals and companies involved and their levels of power influence and money. They have traditionally been able to allow news stories or investigations into areas like this to disappear or be suppressed.
In the United Kingdom a few years ago the late former Television presenter Jimi Saville was exposed as a prolific pedophile, necrophile, and alleged satanist. There was a huge release of shock and emotion that such an individual could go on for so long without detection. In a way, Saville acted as a sacrificial lamb, detracting attention away from the people and entities that hid his practices. He was protected for so long because of his talent in procuring children for hidden shadow elite characters. Its common knowledge especially in the UK that investigation into pedophilia among politicians and captains of industry is persistently stonewalled, delayed and ridiculed.
So the fear is that in the US NXIVM, Keith Reniere, Alison Mack, and others, act as a distraction, an artificial purge. Which detracts away from the main issue that this story, is only the tip of the iceberg. To a huge, global almost demonic force, operating with impunity. Let us hope the issue continues to gain momentum exposing the darkness that exists at the upper echelons of society.
