#NXIVM: “They Tried To Recruit My 17 Year Old Daughter”

Katherine Wall recently contacted me when she saw I was writing about NXIVM. I had done so for Huffington Post and FitsNews and I have weighed in here on this little blog that could that’s chugging along. Brandon Porter, the physician who allegedly conducted fright experiments creeped on his old school friend’s Facebook account and sent her some overly friendly messages in an attempt to recruit her 17 year old daughter – presumably to the DOS division – first connecting her To Allison Mack.

Wall tells me exclusively:

“I was surprised to hear from him, as we hadn’t spoken in years. I was honestly flattered that he thought of my daughter, but yes, then it got uncomfortable. I watched the videos but didn’t research beyond that; honestly it was always a no bc of the money.

I definitely got to the point where I felt like he was bordering on inappropriate which is why I wrote the message- hey let’s focus on the now, you have a beautiful wife/kids, etc.

Retrospectively it is terrifying. My daughter is a gorgeous woman; tall, blonde, model like. I never assumed that a childhood friend from Iowa would have such nefarious intentions.”

I immediately put Katherine Wall through to Frank Parlato, the NXIVM whistle-blower deserving of first dibs on any story related to the cult. Here are the details of Wall’s weird correspondence with Brandon Porter courtesy of The Frank Report (by Frank Parlato):

How Dr. Porter and Allison Mack worked to recruit a teenage girl to the sex slaver cult of NXIVM

May 19, 2018

Constantly on the lookout to recruit fresh young women for NXIVM, Dr. Brandon Porter – recently notorious for his human fright experiments on woman – reached out to a childhood friend who, it so happened, had a 17 year old daughter. He hadn’t spoken with Katherine in probably 20 years. In December 2014, he sent her a Facebook message.

[My notes are in brackets and bold]

[Dr. Porter wrote to Katherine on Dec. 10, 2014]

Katherine,

Long time, no chat! I don’t know if you feel this way, too, but because I read your Facebook posts, I feel closer to you than I probably should. I tend to think about your posts and you become a part of my life in that way.

So, on that note, I was just thinking about a string of posts about your daughter, Jane, and her acting. I’d like to invite her to take a fairly exclusive acting class that I’m taking. It is taught by a friend of mine, Allison Mack (she was Cloe on “Smallville”),and designed by a guy [Keith Raniere] I do research with. I have talked with the professional actors who are taking the course and they say the course has tools for acting they have never experienced before and these tools help them build deep characters quickly and reveal aspects to acting they hadn’t considered in their whole career.

In my experience, the class includes life skills (like building wisdom) that I want my daughter to have and don’t exist any place else, to my knowledge. This is when I thought of you and Jane. The class is 5 weeks long and is from January 25 to March 1. There is also a slower version that meets 3x per week and this runs from January 25 to April 5. The classes are outside of Albany, NY in Clifton Park and Troy.

I hope this note finds you doing well! I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully talking more!

-Brandon

[His message came from out of the blue.]

Whoa! Brandon Porter! What a pleasure to hear from yoU!

Katherine

Your message was awesome, SO great for you to think of Jane!

Brandon:

She looks like an amazingly wonderful human being!

Katherine

She is a crazy talented girl, so much more talented than I ever was…

A challenge to parent, don’t let facebook posts fool you, but she is great!…

Brandon:

… How old is she?

Katherine

17

Brandon:

We have an 18 year old taking the acting curriculum right now. He has matured quite a bit.

Katherine

So wait, where are you living? Albany?

Brandon:

Yep.  Smallbany, as the locals call it. I live in the suburbs, Waterford/Clifton Park.

Where in California are you?

Katherine:

… We are in Redlands, it is about an hour east of LA…right along the San Bernardino mountains…we actually live in Loma Linda…

Brandon:

I have heard of Loma Linda. I am taking the acting course because the philosophy is that actors represent the true humanitarians. Ideally, actors can accept all aspects of humanity….

Katherine:

…  this is so awesome. I would love for her to do it but not sure how it would ever be possible… there’s that pesky living across the country along with the whole obligatory high school thing…

Brandon:

… Would she be interested in doing it this summer?… We could let her live at our place, probably.

Katherine

Wow, what a generous offer! she is a delightful person…

Katherine

Summer would probably work better…maybe if you could connect us with your friend Allison we could chat…

Brandon:

I’m sure she would love to talk with you guys.

Katherine

… I haven’t talked to you in SO long…not sure we even talked much IN high school…lol… but besides FB I really don’t stay in touch with any of those folks…  I am just recalling you as tall, blonde, swimmer, super smart… guess it doesn’t surprise me that you became a thoughtful and successful human being…

Brandon:

That is sweet of you to say. I’m still working on not being an arrogant son-of-a-bitch. Hahahaha. I still remember how much we used to joke with each other in English class in 6th grade. Or was it 8th grade.

I don’t remember….

Katherine:

Oh dear! I have done my best to blank out middle school and high school entirely…

You should feel blessed that I remember you were a swimmer!

Brandon:

Hahahaha. I feel blessed….. I remember you lived on the same street I lived on when I was 2 years old and I walked over to your house with the intention to say hi, but wimped out….

Katherine

hahahaha! oh dear! I remember meeting you at Waveland tennis courts to talk… in like 6th grade…

Brandon:

So, you do remember!

Katherine

just that moment… I was pretty smitten I believe… but it quickly passed! ha!

Brandon:

Me, too.

Katherine

awwwwww, adorable!….

Brandon:

I know. Those days of hormone were pretty amazing and pretty tough.

[After some exchanges about people they knew, Brandon writes]

When would be a good time for the two of you to talk with Allison. We can try to schedule it in the next few weeks.

Katherine:

Sure! Email works well if you want to connect us that way…. Jane has finals week next week and then kids are off for the holidays, etc..

Brandon:

Will do. I’ll send an email.

[Brandon did not let a few weeks pass. He sent Katherine and Allison an email two days later. BTW I think it curious that Allison’s email is ‘Scout 82’ – for she truly was a scout for Raniere. I wonder she if she brought in 82 young women?]

From: Brandon Porter <brandporter@gmail.com>

Subject: Acting classes

Date: December 12, 2014 at 1:29:03 PM PST

To: Allison Mack <scout82@gmail.com>, and Katherine [email redacted]

Hello Katherine and Allison,

I’m writing to introduce the two of you so you can make some time to talk about the acting program and determine if it would be a good fit for Katherine’s daughter, Jane, and if Jane  would be a good fit for the program.

Katherine,

Allison is a close friend of mine. She started acting professionally at a very early age and does beautiful work. She worked with the guy I am doing research with [Keith Raniere] to design one of the most impressive tool sets around to help people learn short cuts to building deep characters and help people discover how they can use their body as a tool to tell a story. She brings her care and compassion to the course and this really makes the curriculum shine.

I think she will be able to help you and Jane figure out if this is a tool set that would be helpful for Jane.

Allison,

Katherine is a friend of mine from middle school and high school (we actually lived down the street from each other when we were about 1 or 2 years old, then we dated for about 2 weeks or a month in middle school). Her daughter, Jane, is an accomplished actor and is spending a decent amount of her effort in this direction. It excites me to think about a young person like her having these tools. I hope you find her to be a good candidate for taking the program.

If you would like for me to introduce the two of you on Skype, I will make time for this.

Regards,

Brandon

[After receiving the email, Katherine messaged him on Facebook that day]

Katherine:

Ha!!!! I don’t recall that we ever “dated” but I’ll let that slide! Thanks for the email, I’ll look forward to hearing from Allison!

Brandon:

I was in love, so it felt like dating to me.

Thanks for letting it slide.

Katherine:

Oh stop!!! Hindsight is 20/20!

{They chat more about each other’s families.]

[Almost as if she and Dr. Porter were tag teaming Katherine, Allison ‘Scout’ Mack sent Katherine an email that same day.

[Dec 12, 2014; Allison Mack <scout82@gmail.com> wrote Katherine and copied Dr. Porter]

Hey there Katherine.

So lovely to meet [by email]. I always love to know about about my friends’ [Dr. Porter] past… it is so nice when the 2 worlds (old and new) collide.

Thank you for the complimentary intro Brandon, so nice.

I would be more than happy to make time to talk to you about The Acting Program. I will be available starting Sunday. Would you like to make a time?

xo

Allison

[About a week later, Katherine emailed Allison. It is understandable she might do so. Her daughter wants to be an actress. Mack was an actress. She was teaching an acting course. Someone from her home town recommended it. Katherine emailed ‘Scout’ Allison and sent her daughter’s resume. On Dec 20, 2014, Katherine wrote:}

Hi Allison-

Sorry for my delayed response, it has been a crazy week!

We would love to know more about your program. Can you tell us a little bit more about what you do?

Brandon mentioned classes this January but also this summer as a possible option?

Jane is currently weighing her options for this upcoming summer break so any information would be very helpful.

I am attaching her resume for your review. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thanks-

Katherine

[On the same morning Dr. Porter nudged Katherine.]

Brandon:

Hello Katherine, did you get a hold of Allison?

Katherine:

Hi Brandon! Ironically I just emailed her back!  It was a crazy week here of final exams and holiday prep! Hope  you are doing well!

Brandon:

So funny. Cool. I think you will like her. She is one of my favorite people in the world. Have a great Christmas!

[Allison ‘Scout’ Mack wrote back that same day]

Hey there Katherine.

I’m so glad to hear back from you.

Yes we offer our intensive course 4 times per year. One every season. So there will most definitely be one in the summer.

I would love to chat with you and Jane in person to discuss this further. When would be a good time for you?

We are offering our lowest price right now and it is scheduled to increase on December 24 so if we could speak in the next couple of days we can make sure you receive the lowest price if you want to sign up!!

Let me know your schedule and I will do my best to work around you.

xo

Allison

[A few days passed. On Dec 25, 2014, Katherine wrote Allison about speaking. Allison Mack scout82@gmail.com wrote back the same day]

Yes! I am more than happy to make myself available over the next few days.

When works for you?

xo

Allison

[Katherine did not get back to her right away and they did not meet while Allison was in California. Two months later, {3/01/2015} Katherine messaged Dr. Porter on his birthday]

Katherine:

Hey Brandon I hope you had a wonderful birthday. I just wanted to let you know that Allison and I never ended up connecting…. Thanks again for thinking of Jane, it means a lot!

Brandon:

I had a wonderful day! I’m sorry for not following up with Allison to see if she got in contact with you guys. I’ll see her tomorrow and chat. They just finished teaching another round of the class and people had great experiences. If she is too busy trying to get the classes going and helping run a woman’s organization [Jness maybe DOS in its beginning stages] I can also find one of the other professional actors who can talk with you guys. Would that work for you? I get the sense that the most helpful perspective would be from a professional actor.

Katherine:

Honestly I’m not sure it would work out with timing et al, but feel free to follow up if you would like. I’m kind of hoping Jane will stay around here this summer honestly, but who knows. I’m so glad you had a good day!

A month passed and Dr. Porter initiated a conversation on 3/31/2015]

Brandon:

Hello! Here is the acting class’s website. They have a new video describing it a little more.

http://www.ultimasource.com/ If Jane likes it I’m pretty sure I can get Allison to give her some time.

Katherine:

Hey Brandon! Thanks so much for sharing, I’ll check it out!

Great video for sure!

Brandon:

Yes, I love it! Marc Vicente does good work.

Katherine:

I know the course runs 5 weeks but how often does it meet?…

Brandon:

It meets about 5 days a week with homework in between.

Katherine:

Full time during the day?

Brandon:

I don’t think so, but I will check. Combined with the course is a new type of yoga [exo/eso] and this is about 2 hours at least 3x per week and more if she wants to.

Katherine:

Oh geez just stop! Lol

Brandon:

What do you mean? I’m not joking.

Katherine:

I know you’re not! Did you know Jane adores yoga?

Brandon:

I didn’t.

The people who love yoga love this new training.

Katherine:

So are you underwriting this adventure Dr. Porter? I can only imagine the tuition associated with this!

Brandon:

 it is $8000 or $10,000. More valuable than any acting class she will ever have. It helps her discover herself and gives tools to help her build compassion for whatever parts of herself she is scared to expose. And, then there is the yoga.

Katherine

Wow. That’s…a lot.

Brandon:

It is serious stuff.

Katherine:

Sounds like it! I mean it sounds awesome, I love the approach, the philosophy, the video, etc…

But…

Brandon:

 It is $8000 until April 18.

Katherine

If I had 8K laying around, I’m guessing 10K wouldn’t be much of a stretch! Lol

Brandon:

 $2000 is $2000 is $2000. They have a payment plan available if this is something that you would prefer.

Katherine

The level of faith and confidence you have in me is stunning! Touching! Heart wrenching!

WHY did we not date in high school?! Lol

Brandon:

I don’t know. You never asked me out!

Katherine:

Ha! Ditto!! You didn’t even talk to me! Damn, you could have saved me from my disastrous high school life. Maybe if we DID date, I would have $10K sitting around!!! Or even $8K… that wasn’t otherwise earmarked for things like college…and food!

Brandon:

I think everyone has a disastrous high school life. I barely had my head above water.

Katherine

Do you mean that literally or figuratively? I’m guessing both. Yep, both.

This conversation would be so different in person…

Brandon:

Let’s talk on the phone.  I want to know why you were a cheerleader for the swim team.

Katherine:

Hahaha! So your head WAS above water! Lol  Or you are sitting near your yearbook and you just looked that up.

Brandon:

It was always awkward for me to be wearing almost no clothes standing next to you guys [Cheerleaders].

Katherine

Too funny. I don’t recall that being awkward at all! Lol

Brandon:

You had clothes on.

Katherine

Oh dear. Boys in high school are so… sigh.  You’re just trying to woo me out of $10K!  You know you can message me anytime to reflect on the good old days, you don’t need to dangle this carrot to do so!

Brandon:

I’m trying to help you daughter have the best experience of herself she can.

Katherine:

I would love that for her too, believe me, I would love to give her that experience! More than anything!… And if anyone needs it, she does! But we honestly just don’t have the money. It’s pretty simple!

[Brandon Porter then called Katherine on Facebook. She did not answer.]

Katherine

I can’t believe you just called me!!! Lol

Brandon:

I cannot believe you didn’t pick up!

Hahahahaha

Katherine

That has SO many layers to it! SO. MANY!

I hope they are good layers.

Katherine

Oh dear…

Do you have a dirty mind? It wasn’t intended that way. I don’t know what to say now. Did I make your life difficult?

Katherine

I don’t think all layers are bad but there are layers. No, of course you didn’t make my life difficult.

I don’t know what layers are, then.

Katherine

My life IS difficult, or seems to be today, but you didn’t make it that way! How was your day?….

Brandon:

My life is difficult too. It seems like this is the way life is. I’m going to sign my wife up for a $10,000 ethics course that I just took. It was outstanding and I cannot see her living life and raising our kids without it. So funny.  We had dinner out together for the first time in months. It was pretty fun!

Katherine:

Ethics huh? Interesting…

I don’t know where I will get the money, either.

[Ed. note: this is a perfect example of how Executive Success Programs works. A medical doctor who does not know where he can find money to pay for his wife’s courses. Viva Executive Success!]

Katherine:

Where did you have dinner? That sounds delightful, I do hope wine was involved.

Yes. In the end, ethics are about joy.

Katherine

Seems ethics simple for some, complicated for others.

We ate in Saratoga. I had mushrooms and potatoes and she had salmon.

Katherine

Are you a vegetarian?

It hit the spot. She liked her wine. I am a vegetarian

Katherine

And you don’t drink?

I killed a lot of mice doing my PhD and it is a penance of mine. I drink occasionally. I might have taken the lives of 4000 little animals. That is a lot of life. I killed countless bacteria, too. I didn’t take on a penance for that.

Katherine

That makes sense… Wow, 4000. That’s a shitload of mice! Wait, where are you working? Did you tell me and I forgot?

I know. Not quite the mouse Hitler, but I was definitely warming up to earning that title. I’m in Albany, NY. I stay up late.

Katherine

And occasional drinks are good. I’ve had a couple today! Now I know where you live just not what you do, like career wise! Lol

What’s going on with you and your layers? I am a hospitalist for 12 days a month and I research joy and ethics.

[Here Dr. Porter shows us why he may be broke. He only works 12 days a month as a physician. The rest of his time he researches joy and ethics – Bronfman -Raniere style.  That research includes human fright experiments – which may have given him joy, and taught him Raniere ethics – as he frightened young women with his gruesome experiments.]

Katherine

Ignore my layers. Not important. Oh wow, a hospitalist! Do you like that?!

Okeedokee.

I like parts of it….  I get to do a lot of cool things because of my job.

Like take ethics classes and acting classes…. What do you do with the rest of your time?

Are you in Los Angeles?

Katherine

Yoga, cycling, hiking, shuttling kids all over creation! We are about an hour east of LA…

Sounds good! It looks like you like it.

Katherine

Yes, more joy here for sure.

I like it! But taking Jane away from her theatre community sucked.

I like the distinction that joy is not conditional and happiness is conditional. [Raniere-speak]

Katherine

Oooooo, I want to hear more about that.

This [Raniere-inspired] theater crew is going to start making a new type of theater. They will start developing plays that help bring people to important experiences that are common life experiences, but we don’t plan for them. They are pre-experiences. Like end of life care questions. Things like that.

Katherine

Oooooooo….yes.

Let’s chat tomorrow. Do you have time to chat? I think it would be fun.

Katherine

Possibly. Maybe.

How about Thursday?

Katherine

When are you thinking? Time difference is a beast…

Not really. Is morning, afternoon or night best for you? I’m pretty open these next two days.

Katherine

Message me tomorrow… Want to send me some advanced reading on joy and ethics?

Okeedokee smokey. I don’t have much reading. I’ll give you another Web site.

Katherine

That works

www.espian.net

Katherine

I’ll check it out. Just for the record, I won’t have 10K tomorrow either…

Me either!

Katherine

Have a good night!

Katherine

You too, sleep well.

Will do, you too!

[Espian.net -like all Raniere websites has little information]

[The next day Katherine messaged Dr. Porter 4/01/2015]

Katherine

I thought that website would explore and ponder the meaning of joy and happiness in life… but sadly no. Lol. I don’t think I have money for that program either! …. What are you doing today?

I’m doing some research stuff. I’m available to talk right now if you want….  I’m available for the next hour or so. Then, I’ll be available later tonight.

Katherine

What is it that you want to chat about?

I was going to talk with you about the acting class. I can also talk with you about the joy classes if you are interested. I’m also curious about your stint as a cheerleader, but we can save that for a later conversation if you want.

Katherine

Lol, I think the acting/joy classes are moot unfortunately. I cheered for basketball too by the way!

That was much preferable as I recall, but literally a lifetime ago.

I’ll chat with you later!

Katherine

…. I do enjoy chatting with you, but probably best to focus on real grown up life now. And it is a beautiful life you have, yes? Your wife is gorgeous, your kids are adorable, and you have a wonderful job. I bet you are a fabulous practitioner.  I remain intrigued about your theories behind joy and happiness, perhaps we can discuss that at some point…

Yes. Let’s talk about now. Sounds good to me!

Katherine

….At some point…

Cool beans! It’s fun to hear from you. I look fo to hearing your voice.

Katherine

I’m still not sure why, but ok!

[Somehow the two never connected. Maybe because Katherine did not have $8,000 to pay to send her 17 year old daughter to a Raniere-Mack class. Lucky for Katherine and Jane.]

#NXIVM: Cult Leader Was Holocaust Denier?!

Breakups can be brutal and scorned lovers can act psychotic, but imagine leaving a dude and having him call you in a Nazi in a past life! That happened to former NXIVM member and Keith Raniere ex Toni Natalie, but wait, there’s more…

Keith Raniere, leader of NXIVM and the most insane person to claim he was the smartest man in the world, was also under the impression that the Holocaust was not really as bad as what is stated in history books – or as survivors can personally attest to. I have a great aunt who underwent experiments by Josef Mengele, but Keith would say I was lying. Trust me when I say he wouldn’t have wanted to meet her.

According to Artvoice.com, owned by NXIVM’s former publicist Frank Parlato, Clare and Sarah Bronfman (the Seagram heiresses funding and helping to run NXIVM) gave Keith millions for commodities trading and he lost the money without much explanation. So, in true cult leader fashion, he blamed their father Edgar Bronfman for foiling the trades.He  claimed that Edgar knew that Keith knew the Holocaust was a Zionist sham. Of course we all know the Bronfman family is a Jewish family that has historically donated philanthropically to many important causes. It’s just a shame that Clare and Sarah have tarnished that family name through this insane cult.  Here’s what Artvoice.com says that Keith claimed, with a little background preceding it:

“Edgar Bronfman  was President of the World Jewish Congress [from 1979-2007.] He was also President of the World Jewish Restitution Organization, whose stated objective is to ensure “…the return of communal Jewish property stolen by the Nazis and then by the communists in Eastern Europe, and property in Western Europe stolen by the Nazis and unaccounted for.

The conflict lay, Mr. Raniere explained, not in that he had an uplifting influence over the daughters of one of the leaders of the Jews but that Mr. Raniere knew something that threatened the foundations of the life work of Edgar Bronfman – and the powers of the Jewish world.

Of course, some scoffed at the notion that Mr. Bronfman even knew about the commodities investments his daughters took part in. Indeed they took great pains to hide it from him.  These people claim that Raniere merely blundered, or more likely swindled the sisters out of the money and used Papa Bronfman as a decoy.  The sisters chose to believe Keith, who was, after all, the smartest man in the world and, they said, the most ethical.

Now, for the first time, Frank Report reveals what Keith Raniere told his most intimate disciples about the reason Edgar Bronfman went against him:

Keith Raniere told several disciples that he discovered that Nazi Germany did not use extermination camps and gas chambers to mass murder Jews; and the actual number of Jews killed was significantly lower than the historically accepted figure of 6 million.

Raniere had proof, he said, that the holocaust was a Zionist Fraud, and the “Hoax of the Twentieth Century”, a vast Zionist/Allied/Soviet conspiracy.

Now, for the first time, Frank Report reveals what Keith Raniere told his most intimate disciples about the reason Edgar Bronfman went against him:

Keith Raniere told several disciples that he discovered that Nazi Germany did not use extermination camps and gas chambers to mass murder Jews; and the actual number of Jews killed was significantly lower than the historically accepted figure of 6 million.

Raniere had proof, he said, that the holocaust was a Zionist Fraud, and the “Hoax of the Twentieth Century”, a vast Zionist/Allied/Soviet conspiracy.

According to several disciples with whom he confided, Mr. Raniere’s views were as follows::

  1. The Holocaust is an exaggeration arising out of a Jewish conspiracy, designed to advance the interest of Jews at the expense of other peoples.
  2. The stories of Nazi brutality were just propaganda.
  3. Germany was the victim of Allied aggression.
  4. Allegations made against Germany, including the Holocaust, were wartime propaganda which had been used to justify the United States’ involvement in World War II.
  5. The Allies made the Nazis the “scapegoat” for their own misdeeds.  The atrocities of the Allies were more brutal, painful, mortal and numerous than the most extreme allegations made against the Germans. The Nazi treatment of Jews was no different from what the Allies did to their enemies in World War II.
  6. Israeli politicians [men like Edgar Bronfman] derived billions of dollars from nonexistent, mythical and imaginary cadavers, whose numbers have been reckoned in an unusually distorted and dishonest manner.
  7. There was no German program to exterminate Europe’s Jews, and the estimate of six million Jewish wartime dead is an irresponsible exaggeration. The Holocaust – the alleged extermination of some six million Jews (most of them by gassing) – is a hoax and should be recognized as such.
  8. The gas chambers used by the Nazis to exterminate the Jews did not exist. There were no execution gas chambers in Auschwitz or in any other concentration camp. Today, what are displayed as ‘gas chambers’ at the remains of the Auschwitz camp in Poland are a post-war fabrication by the Polish communist regime or the Soviet Union.  Neither at Auschwitz nor in any territory controlled by the Germans was there ‘mass murder of Jews’ in ‘gas chambers.’ Mr. Raniere admits there were scattered killings. But most who died at Auschwitz were the victims of “natural causes” such as disease, not gassing. The death of some Jews were due to the typhus plague during the war and the famine towards the end of the war caused by the defeat of the Germans.
  9. The majority of documentation relating to the operation of the gas chambers in death camps, is “rare” and “unreliable” – and based upon misleading evidence, false statements, and outright lies.
  10. The Zionists fabricated a legend, under the name of the Massacre of the Jews. It is myth. Leading Jews – such as Edgar Bronfman – spread this myth as part of a plundering plot intended to enable the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, garner support for the state of Israel and pocket money for themselves and their Jewish friends – some of whom are connected to the Illuminati.

How Keith Raniere claimed he got  his “evidence” is unclear. Once source said he found most of his information on the internet and, combined with his own gigantic brain, and insight into the past, permitted him to put it all together as no one had before.

How Edgar Bronfman found out about Keith’s internet realizations, or how the Illuminati got wind of it, is also unclear. But Keith Raniere said to numerous disciples, with a straight face and in a whisper, that Edgar Bronfman and the Illuminati were marshaled against him.

This knowledge Keith had – it put a scare into old Papa Bronfman and other terrified Jews – afraid that Keith would come out with the proof – once he had the money – and this seems to have been the motive for them to foil his commodities investments, Keith Raniere said

Perhaps he got some of his insights from his own disciples. Keith Rainiere claimed to have identified six lovers and disciples as having been connected with the Nazis in a previous life.

Keith Raniere claimed his knowledge is so vast he could tell who people were in their past lives.  Some of his insights included the following:

Toni Natalie – his former girlfriend and the woman designated to have his avatar child –  was Herman Goering in her previous life.

goering

Barbara Bouchey, another girlfriend designated to have an avatar child, was, in her past life, Mr. Raniere said, Reinhard Heydrich.

reinhard_heydrich

Ivy Nevares, another girlfriend designated to have an avatar baby, was a Nazi working under Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda.

The late Pamela Cafritz was identified as an obscure and low-level Nazi whose name has not been passed down to history.

Alex Betancourt was identified as Benito Mussolini, the Italian dictator.

hitler-4

Nancy Salzman

So if anyone would know enough to sink the Zionist view of the Holocaust, and lead the Holocaust Deniers to triumph, who better could it be then the word’s smartest man, who had top Nazis reincarnated as his very disciples?

Either that or he is just a liar, a plain, darn, old fashioned, bullshitting liar. He swindled those girls out of $65 million, or he blew it through stupidity, and lied about it.

Either he is telling the truth or his lie was a $65 million dollar whopper.”

#RHONY: Behind the Scenes Drama Between Dorinda and Luann

Oy vey, those Real Housewives blogs certainly make cast members angry! In case you’re not in the know, I’m referring to the blogs that cast mates are required to write about each episode that airs. These posts appear on the Bravo website. Never one to disappoint us, the ladies of Real Housewives of New York are keeping up the high-intensity drama now that cameras have stopped rolling. What they choose to write is always subjected to backlash and accusations of hypocrisy.

Luann took to her blog to convey that she hopes Dorinda took Bethenny’s critique about her drinking to heart and internalized it. It seems that Lu’s remarks and her loyalty to Sonja are maximally irksome to Dorinda. So Dorinda is biting back. On Twitter, she shared the sentiment of how people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. As Dorinda privately remarked to me: “I think my tweet says it all, don’t you?”

#NXIVM Founder’s Ex Girlfriend: “No One Joins a Cult Thinking They’re Joining a Cult”

DDDF4BB2-07BF-426A-9EF4-CF5B9821FDE7.jpegIn the wake of multilevel marketing pyramid scheme/sex trafficking cult leader Keith Raniere’s arrest and that of actress Allison Mack, I interviewed Toni Natalie. Aside from being a former NXIVM member (when the group was called Consumers Buyline), she was Raniere’s live-in love of 8 years and terrorized by Raniere for 2 decades following their breakup.

Freaking Out in Our 40s, by the Last Unbotoxed Woman on Earth (for now at least)

cameron diaz

Actress Cameron Diaz claims to eschew Botox, fillers and other artificially cosmetic anti-aging solutions, saying she would rather age naturally.

“Someone mistook me for 21 today!!!” posted a 43 year old acquaintance. Braggadocio earned her 140 likes in under 120 minutes. Comments from others followed about being mistaken for much (!) younger. Facebook feeds our narcissistic desires and I personally “like” that. It works to my benefit, especially since I have an otherwise overlooked summer birthday. My friends in their 30s post about John Hamm, Netflix or naptime between baby feedings. Those who post about work – Well, I probably don’t pay attention – but they rarely have happy endings.

Anyway, the response to the 43 year old swiftly becomes a manic flurry of “me too”s, with nary a 30 or 20something chiming in. I am candid with myself and I know we are all going through some sort of “life crisis.” With options in the modern world like lunchtime surgical nips, fillers and great makeup (contouring!), as well as books by scholars the likes of Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba…we feel minor assurance. We have little stories we tell ourselves. I sit and sip my green tea hoping it will negate yesterday’s aspartame-infested diet coke and New Amsterdam peach flavored vodka, but I already foresee the name of my future sitcom: “The Last Unbotoxed Woman on Earth.” The plan for now is to age naturally. As my sister in law stated so eloquently: “Wrinkles are beautiful. They show you’ve aged.”

I just saw Raquel Welch on the telly (being a woman of a certain age means I can affect a British accent when I choose, just ask Madonna). The woman is absolutely gorgeous, and, we can all agree: “well preserved.” The reality is that not many of us can afford the good kind of plastic surgery, and the bad kind is too readily available. Let’s not enumerate, but we can agree that the very rich have fallen prey to hideous work. Forget face lifts; it is also quite expensive to seek out options such as lipo, lasers and lights.

It is never a one-time deal from what I have surmised. Maintenance is required. I have met a few plastic surgeons and they will compliment you and flirt away (See: the E! network’s smarmy Dr. Robert Rey), but they will never simply let you say “I’m fine with my appearance.” They have a suggestion for anyone and everyone. This, in my opinion, is the reason for “fake boobs” among the gorgeous of L.A. and Beverly Hills. You can’t mess with perfection, but oh, you can if you are a plastic surgeon because perfection does not exist. (I happen to think little breasts are perfect for running and just generally not getting in one’s way, but that’s just me.)

But back to the real people, the ones who aren’t on Bravo. There is no end to the amount of cups you can fill from the alleged fountain of youth. Hearing about the miracle and attached lore of a broth one man formulated to heal his problematic skin, I am in Bloomingdales searching. The price tag for this broth which is now a cream that is eerily scented (fragrances in a miracle broth for the most sensitive of skins?!) and has the feel and consistency of pediatric staple Eucerin, is exorbitant. Two ounces retail for over 300 dollars. I timidly ask if I can try a sample. They are out of samples, how fortuitous (!), but I know I can hit up Amazon and spend 10 dollars for one, yes pay a small price for the samples that are given out free.

Another customer joins me at the counter. She is fully covered from head to toe, face veiled in an abaya, a Muslim traditional garment that is the best SPF money can buy. I try to make out her eyes’ reaction to the insane price. She takes out a 100 dollar bill followed by two more and I know she’s for real. The saleslady makes an inappropriate comment about what terrific skin she must have under there, that it’s a shame she’s all covered up. Racist! I ask my new friend, the abaya-clad customer at the counter, if the miracle broth is worth the mula. She says she swears by it.

The saleslady takes the opportunity to digest my fully uncovered face and examine the pores rather laboriously. “You, my dear, cannot use the cream, you need the gel. You are acne-prone skin!” she announces. I try to explain that I’m 41 and so I am focused on anti-aging too. I say I’m a tad worried the gel won’t address the moisturizing I might need, now that I am getting up there in the years. “Rubbish!” she might as well have said, though she was more Brooklyn than British. She dismissed me with a wave to the Clinique counter. You see, we are all being dismissed, my dear 40somethings, as going through some sort of silly stage akin to a midlife crisis and not really understanding what we need to do for ourselves.

I also realize it is not only skin deep. We are reading all sorts of ludicrous books on feminism that we may never have picked up 15 years ago (for me, it’s Fear of Flying.. I’m not knocking Ms. Jong, but I would not have appreciated it in my 30s). We are determining our identities and one step further and more subconsciously, our legacies.

The “stage” you are at now, if you’re halfway to your 80s, is suddenly under self-scrutiny. Am I happy? Am I fulfilled? Have I written the great American novel yet, the one I was supposed to publish at 25? Yeah, that last one is MY depressing admission. These are all minor aspirations for those faced with greater challenges. Perspective changes in the face of overcoming illness, abuse or worse. How you process the deeper resolutions of making your life great and seizing the day may be altered by a Xanax in the short run, but you’ll later cry in the shower wondering why you can’t connect with your emotions. You will realize it is to your benefit to feel!

For some reason, my friends in their 50s seem to be over the more massive hump. Those initial grays, age spots and wrinkles are so yesterday. They’re busy traveling and posting pictures of bowling nights out with fabulous folks. But I know they must have their fair share of complaints that I’m not hearing —Still, I feel they’ve shifted priorities. They’re busy commenting on Kosovo, not on the Kardashians.

There’s less pressure to impress when they leave the house, having finished the New York Times crossword puzzle (will I be smarter in my 50s too? I hope so!), clad in stylish yet supportive sneakers, hair scrunched in a bun with minimal makeup. Unlike 40somethings, these woman have known each other for a long time and even when they haven’t, they seem to be candid and not self-conscious. When they trade stories about their spouses or dates, the candor need not be candy-coated or apologetic. The air is filled with understanding, cynicism is a part of their regular humor, not a set-in-stone gossip- garnering sign of learned helplessness.

The above is all based solely on observation and what it looks like from inside of 41, looking out. So I ask that you take it all with a grain of salt – or a strand of salt and pepper hair. Turning 40 signified numerous changes for me personally. I’ve stopped caring more than half as much about what others think (while admitting I have a way to go. You don’t know my starting point, in fairness), I definitely take more fashion risks (wide brimmed hats, bright red lipstick), I focus on the time I’m spending with my kids in the suburbs and not the fact that I haven’t been in the city partying freely and unencumbered with friends in eons. My friendships are based on who I bond with best, whether they be 27 or 55. Age is just a number after all. We can have similar life experiences as someone a decade younger or a decade older.

However, I recently reflected that at age 41, I have no friends who are 21. I’m just not sure we would have ample common ground. Beyond taking selfies (which Wendy Williams says we may be a little old for past 40), a friendship with someone half my age would likely begin with a flip of radio stations and end there: Justin Bieber is on the radio? Hmm. Did you know that according to Wikipedia, the singer’s mother was born in April of 1975? I was born in July of 1974.

Chelsea Handler recently admitted that she felt like a pedophile interviewing Justin Bieber because it’s part of his shtick to flirt with his interviewer. Chelsea Handler is a full year younger than I am. So putting these random little puzzle pieces together, it is more logical that I could be Justin Bieber’s mother than that Chelsea Handler or Justin’s very own mothercould.That is disconcerting. If I think too hard about what it means to be in my 40s, I will forget about beautiful glowing JLO, or my friend Brian who looks like a teenager but is a highly sought out international headache specialist at a mere 41. And I can’t forget the human rights activists, the novelists (damn them!), the filmmakers and the people who are living their dreams – and mine!

What it boils down to is that a “crisis” affects those of us who have not yet grabbed the bull by the horns. Some of us are unsure how to, or we feel stuck, but we also feel an urgency to carpe diem. We are not getting any younger. So if you are in your 30s or 20s and wondering why so many “older” people are posting selfies or sharing pictures of their massive hike to the apex of Kilimanjaro, try to be understanding.

We are still living, somewhere between young and old, somewhere maybe prior to, or just post, mid-life, and we fear irrelevance. No one gets out of this crazy world alive, but we’re all here now to make an impact. The greatest fear, in fact, is not actually death since we know death is an inevitability to life. The greatest fear is going through life without making a mark, or leaving a legacy, without diving off a few planes high in the sky, without making someone gasp or smile for a lengthy period. Our 40s may be our last decade to let loose and go wild while our God-given knees and hips are still in-tact. So excuse us if we make absolute asses of ourselves in order to live each day to its fullest and rejoice, but it seems like the perfect time.
