John Tighe: The Idiot’s Guide to Keith Raniere

It seems to me with all the recent discussion about the legality of the conviction of Keith Raniere AKA Vanguard, one would think he committed nothing more than a statutory rape against a willing teenager.

So, for all of you who don’t know the whole story about Keith – and that obviously includes Suneel Chakravorty – let’s take a brief trip down memory lane.

Part 1: Getting to Know Raniere


And not just your average liar.

Keith is a pathological, compulsive, and farcical liar.

Sentencing Memorandum: Allison Mack’s Attorneys Ask for Probation –She Is ‘Free of the Twisting Influence of Keith Raniere’

by Frank Parlato

Allison Mack’s attorneys have filed a sentencing memorandum with the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York asking Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis to give the former actress probation instead of incarceration.

Lawyers William F. McGovern and Sean S. Buckley argue in the memorandum that the former actress deserves probation because she has “turned her life around,” and is “free of the twisting influence of Keith Raniere.”

Mack is scheduled to be sentenced on June 30 at 11 am.

The government earlier this week submitted a sentencing memorandum which recommended a downward departure from her

Nxivm ‘Branding Doctor’ Tells of ‘Life-Changing Gifts I Received’ From Her Time in Master-Slave Sorority DOS

Danielle Roberts D.O., the so-called branding doctor of Nxivm, continues to speak out in support of the now-defunct DOS organization of which she was a member. A recent article on The Frank Report shared the osteopath’s thoughts on the benefits she gained from her experience in DOS — a group that’s been vilified by the media and labeled a ‘sex cult’ by many.

Roberts  recently gave her perspective on branding women with Nxivm leader Keith Raniere’s initials in an NBC Dateline interview, stating that the women wanted the permanent body art and were not harmed. The ex-Nxivm members she

CNBC’s American Greed premiered its 14th season on January 18, 2021. The second episode of the season, airing Monday, January 25th, looks at the alleged greed of so-called ‘sex cult guru’ Keith Raniere.

It’s called “American Greed: Nightmare at NXIVM.”

But what many in the group don’t know is that for Raniere,

With Friends Like This, Who Needs Enemies? Some of Clare’s Supporters May Have Put Nails in Her Coffin

The general consensus seems to be that Clare Bronfman may have done herself some serious harm with the letter that she recently wrote to the judge who will be sentencing her on September 30th, U.S. Senior District Court Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis.
Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis

It was in that letter that Clare made it one hundred percent perfectly clear that she would never disavow her Vanguard, Keith Alan Raniere – or his crazy sex cult, NXIVM.

On the contrary, Clare boldly informed the judge that “…NXIVM and Keith greatly changed my life for the better”.

Former Nxian: Clare Bronfman and Brandon Porter Won’t Acknowledge the Truth About Keith – Their Inner Worlds Would Collapse

By Correspondent

EM TECH is a former Nxivm member who I have interviewed in the past. 


I’ve known Clare Bronfman for five years or so.

She is a sweet person, but gullible and not terribly mentally strong.

She is, unfortunately, very poorly educated, and she admits to a long history of mental illness, so it’s tragic.

Clare genuinely believes what she is writing in her letter, but what she doesn’t realize is that the pain she projects onto Keith is her own invention. Clare can’t wrap her head around the notion that Keith doesn’t really feel anything

Making Allison Mack a Perp Instead of a Victim was Pre-planned and the Salzmans Were the Planners

By Correspondent

A fair amount of discussion ensued about whether Allison Mack has or should get counseling. In the post Shivani: Is Allison Mack Still Lost in Hallucinations of ‘Spirituality’ or Taken ‘Exit Therapy’?, Heidi Hutchinson offered a comment. One of Allison Mack’s defenders added a thought and Heidi replied.  Here is the exchange.

By Heidi Hutchinson

Funny how psychotherapy was not on the list of court-approved outings for any NXIVM defendants, especially not Allison Mack.

Makes one wonder why Allison Mack’s Bronfman-paid attorneys never thought to make that obvious request for ‘their’ client, or arrange for a

Sara Bronfman Is Baaaack

Sara Bronfman is still out there trying to save the world.

Even with her Vanguard in prison, even after having to abruptly leave Provence France after the city government shut down her Rainbow Cultural Garden and closing her resort hotel there, she is still trying to make a difference.

The problem is the difference she has tried to make in the past – having too much money and not enough brains – has been to harm others.

She is, after all,, one of the chief financiers of the very harmful Nxivm cult. And by all accounts, she is still an

Who’s Still in and Who’s out of Nxivm Part 3 – More DOS Slaves and SOP Soy-Cucks

In our last two posts of this series, we have explored who is still in Nxivm.

We listed members who are dancers known as The Forgotten Ones, who now dance weekly in front of the MDC prison where Keith Alan Raniere is being held.

And we explored the First Line Masters of DOS who remain loyal to their Vanguard.

The Fall of Allison Mack Is Still a Mystery

It turns out that Mk10ART can write just as well as she can paint. So, in her piece on Allison Mack, which appears to be the first in a series, I am including some of her paintings of Mack so readers can see what I mean. 
Allison Mack with her attorneys headed to or from court. Note that MK10ART captures a much more serious Mack, less young, less vivacious, a Mack who has begun to realize the full weight of her troubles and how her association with her master, Keith Alan Raniere, led here there.


How could
