You can believe in what “they” believe or not. It matters little. Note the players involved and their connections and… as a result… likely influence. And, influences.
If you think they are alone or isolated in their belief system, you are incorrect. These people are “followers” and were introduced to this “faith”.
To quote a friend, “What you believe is irrelevant. All that matters is that they believe what they believe.”
The case against sex cult NXIVM just keeps getting more troubling.
NXIVM (pronounced “Nexium”) is supposedly a marketing organization that offers self-help personal and professional development seminars, but is instead a sex cult that branded and enslaved willing women, as well as trafficked children.
Devotees of NXIVM paid thousands of dollars for seminars, wore colored sashes denoting their “rank,” spouted Scientology-like jargon, and literally bowed before founder-leader Keith Raniere, 57, as their “Vanguard.” Among supporters of NXIVM are:
- Actresses Allison Mack, Linda Evans and Kristin Kreuk.
- Seagram heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman, who poured a fortune into NXIVM, reportedly $150 million.
- Business mogul Richard Branson, BET co-founder Sheila Johnson, and Enron CEO Stephen Cooper. NXIVM held two “wild parties” on Branson’s private Caribbean island in 2007 and 2010, but Branson’s Virgin Management spokesman denies any association between Branson and NXIVM or its founder.
- Family members of Mexican presidents Vicente Fox and Carlos Salinas.
- Democrat politicos with connections to the Clintons: former surgeon general Antonia Novello, a Bill Clinton appointee; longtime Clinton friend-fund raiser Richard Mays, whom Bill Clinton appointed to the Arkansas Supreme Court; NXIVM lobbyist Doug Rutnik, father of Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY). At least three high-ranking NXIVM members — the cult’s second in command Nancy Salzman, and the Bronfman sisters — are members of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Global Initiative.
Raniere didn’t just brand and molest adult women, he raped at least two minor females, aged 15 and 12. According to a DOJ detention memo to U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven Gold, Raniere also condones incest and gang rape. He told one slave that “incest is not wrong if the ‘victim’ is sexually aroused by the experience”. He also “questioned whether gang rape is bad if the person being raped has an orgasm.”
In March, Raniere was extradicted to the United States from a luxury villa in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where he had been hiding with several women for the past 5 months. Allison Mack then took over as interim cult leader, until she herself was arrested on April 20, 2018. Mack had recruited women into NXIVM, whose pubic areas were branded with both her initials and Raniere’s as their willing sex slaves.
Mack’s unsealed indictment states the three charges for which she was arrested:
- Sex trafficking of children or by force, fraud or coercion.
- Conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of childrenor by force, fraud or coercion.
- Attempt to establish peonage, slavery, involuntary servitude, human trafficking.
When I reported Mack’s arrest in a post on April 21, I appended this quote at the bottom of her pic:
“The Devil may appear in the vesture of the Angel of Light.” –2 Corinthians 11:14
My instincts were right.
Frank Parlato, a former NXIVM consultant who, for several months, had lived and worked with the cult, and communicated closely day and night with top NXIVM officials, claims to have evidence and information of other NXIVM crimes, including:
Hacking into people’s personal emails, phone records, and bank accounts; bribing Mexican judges and politicians; massive tax evasion; smuggling $10 million into the US in cash from Mexico; bringing illegal aliens across the border at Niagara Falls and then imprisoning them; allegations from victims of statutory rape; cover up of at least two suicides; engaging in a classic Klein Conspiracy to impede the function of the IRS, with more than 75 corporate entities and/or “shell” companies, with scores of shifting bank accounts; paying employees’ salaries and telling them not to pay income taxes – and even a possible admission of having people killed.
Meanwhile, the MSM continue their virtual black-out on reporting the NXIVM crimes, arrests and indictments.
A little Jake and Elwood reference for all us graybeards.
