On page 9 of the thread, the Vanguard himself, Keith Raniere, checks in and begins to pour out his peculiar brand of weirdo circular logic and long-winded nothingness. It would be interesting to know what they did with the phony information from Canaprobe before it was known to be false. But did they need confirmation because Keith said it was so – which meant it must be true? “[I] would appreciate not being called “retarded” when my concern here is the for the good of the community. Whereas the first was more about the music and having a good time, the second was more about emotional connections, where NXIVM techniques were seemingly being used by members who also attempted to collect SSNs, phone numbers, and other private information of participants. I wasn’t in the story, so I’m not going to go into details. Charles Schumer, U.S. senator from New York. I’m somewhat skeptical of this. Earlier in the thread, Keith had said that NXIVM’s Executive Success Program, it’s flagship seminars or, in cult speak “intensives”, brought in somewhere around $3-4 million dollars per year. Because NXIVM was run by failsons, dilettantes, and a certain scruffy ex-MLM hustler, their attempt to dig up dirt on Deke Sharon backfired miserably. The response from Deke Sharon was spectacular — he had his eyes wide open and was not foolish enough to go against his instincts to support this group. , Ron Miscavige reconstructs an episode that occurred to him in 2013 while he was being stalked by two private investigators who had been hired by his son, the leader of Scientology, David Miscavige. In 2008, a second iteration of A Cappella Innovations was once again hastily assembled, but this time NXIVM would go much harder in the paint with their charm offensive and recruiting effort. Could you pass his name to Catherine Oxenberg, as he’s operating in the wellness community through theater production? The first iteration of A Cappella Innovations seemed to be a fairly innocuous affair, and there was just a little burbling of gossip that was shared on the largest message board for a cappella enthusiasts, RARB/CASA. Because NXIVM was run by failsons, dilettantes, and a certain scruffy ex-MLM hustler, their attempt to dig up dirt on Deke Sharon backfired miserably. Post was not sent - check your email addresses! Recently on r/theNXIVMcase, the subreddit dedicated to chronicling and discussing the disintegrating cult of NXIVM and related media, an old thread was unearthed from, of all things, an a cappella music enthusiast message board. It features a blurred off-kilter face of a wide-eyed child. Were they using the three whore actresses Allison Mack, Kristin Kreuk and Nicki Clyne to directly/indirectly promote/recruit Nxivm? Big improvement on the clumsy Canaprobe or Juval Aviv. Many bullets dodged. What a poor oppressed colonial white man he was, not being martyred for governmental non compliance, and being labeled a.. a…. It doesn’t matter what Mack says 10C name is derived from, I’m going to continue to associate it with the original because it fits so well with the glowing blue substance. Deke Sharon Today at 5:47 PM Ten years ago aired perhaps the greatest hour of a cappella on telev ... ision, as Committed (Let's Stay Together), Street Corner Symphony (Down By The Corner), Jerry Lawson with Talk of Da Town (House of the Rising Sun) and TheBackbeats (Landslide) all crushed their performances, resulting in no one getting eliminated from The Sing Off finale. 2008 must have been a scary time to live. But he just acted like a normal guy.”. I suspected a link to Scientology resources re: the NX stalking, harassment and, turns out, there is a plausible one. And there are plenty of good reasons for cults to recruit college students: I delight in carefully listening to, and reading the statements of the key members of that group – especially KR (quarantine hobby…). Most def. Thank you for your tireless work, Frank. I just googled “luis todd journal”; nada. The better ones don’t usually work with an outside company (private investigators), but make up civilian observers out of their own people. Outside of the Canaprobe shenanigans, NXIVM members made other efforts to reach out to the a cappella circle. Jeffrey Peterson or one of his pals, explained it in a couple of posts. The private investigator agency that was hired to spy on Deke was known as Canaprobe and has been covered in exquisite detail on this very website. Parlato has been featured prominently on HBO’s documentary “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.”. The types of people who were interested and actively participating in a cappella singing competitions and workshops were based around elite universities and full of young, slightly nerdy musical theater types who would be a fertile hunting ground for a cult like NXIVM that specialized in charming wealthy philanthropists, scions of blue blood families, and seekers from groups like the acting and yoga communities. These contractors were replaced or more, supplemented, by slightly more competent ones selected by bigger, more respectable law firms. Deke Sharon closed out the thread by once again reinforcing his points about his intuitive and factual basis for having suspicions about NXIVM’s entrance into the a cappella community and said in essence that he would no longer attend future versions of A Cappella Innovations although he allowed that others may want to take advantage of the free festivals in the future. Here’s a gem from that board by mwhitehouse » Wed Apr 09, 2008 3:49 pm: For starters, Keith’s credentials that Clare listed (most of which are posted also at http://www.keithraniere.com) just aren’t, well, credentials. I like your style. Clare wrote: JT covered some of this and if memory serves, some of these disgruntled Acapella organizers may have appeared live on the blog in 2009/2010 expressing their angst with Simply Human. You called it, obviously, and you probably saved some vulnerable accapella enthusiasts by your putting your foot down. Keith also loves using the clickbait sort of adjectives like “surprising” and making assertions that something will indeed be surprising and somehow revelatory with no follow-up or “data” to support his statements. In any case, targeted. La secta que sedujo al poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez. Bravo to Mr. Shelton for standing up for himself and his community, knowing their malicious ways of destroying people. Operation Freakout was a labyrinthine conspiracy assembled by Scientology to frame Paulette Cooper, an early critic of Scientology, and the operation was so successful that Cooper was indicted on a trumped-up charge of making bomb threats and only narrowly avoided being convicted and sent to prison. But it worked to keep the Bronfman sisters funding Keith’s endeavors. Michael Freedman, who wrote a story for Forbes magazine entitled “Cult of Personality”. It’s also part of his self-identification into oppressed groups that he doesn’t belong to, doesn’t represent, nor was asked to. was a labyrinthine conspiracy assembled by Scientology to frame Paulette Cooper, an early critic of Scientology, and the operation was so successful that Cooper was indicted on a trumped-up charge of making bomb threats and only narrowly avoided being convicted and sent to prison. Accepting his offer and, after evaluation, being dissatisfied—but at least your dissatisfaction would be informed and definitive, 3. Lauren and others also attempted to get Deke or other leaders of the community to reply in kind with lists of the “data” they would need to be able to trust Keith and NXIVM. That she was an ‘image consultant’ and was interested in a logo and how much would that cost?” After Amy replied to Daniela, Amy noticed that instead of the email being routed to a yahoo email address that Daniela had sent her email from, Amy’s return email was instead redirected to a nxian.net email address. All carrying the NXIVM flag and all trying to convince the reader they are not a “cult.” All I kept thinking of was the line from Hamlet, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”. His work helping take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg; “Scarred”  by Sarah Edmonson;  “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. Deke and others on the board knew that NXIVM members had previously engaged and had accounts on the RARB/CASA forum and so would be likely to respond especially given how much time, effort and financial resources they had pumped into the festival. , among many other machinations, to intimidate and harass “suppressives” or heretics is a tactic that is shared by many high control groups like Scientology and NXIVM. This trademarked “rational inquiry” process represents a set of moral/religious beliefs The methods described by those who took the first one or two intensives of NXIVM can really winnow out the most vulnerable ones. I’ve noticed that a few people have been searching under every rock to find the TRUE intent behind A Cappella Innovations. They were supposed to be probing your off shore bank accounts — and your secret connections to Edgar Bronfman and others supposedly trying to destroy Keith Raniere. Encender el Corazón (Documentary) (producer) 2016 Maybe having hobbies like singing in choirs like this that makes us happy means we have less need of a cult. for the first time and it does not compute. Information sources like this thread from 2008 are rare and this one in particular came off to me almost like the bug sealed in a chunk of amber from Jurassic Park. This was remarked on with great surprise and incredulity by Deke and others. You were on their list of bad guys. Allison Mack has posted pictures of her nephews on the internet in the past but because of the blurred nature of the Instagram post, I am unable to identify if the photo is one of her nephews. Parlato will be featured in an upcoming episode of American Greed. These people seem to know when usually young people are most vulnerable. They spied on Deke Sharon, who is famous within the a cappella community, who was critical of Raniere. If this isn’t patently ridiculous to you, after taking classes devoted to “critical thinking” … I honestly don’t know what to say. As far as I know, they did not take any further action against you, Deke. You may find the smoke comes from a surprising source.” What surprising source the adverse information was coming from was never revealed. Allison Mack coming in with the DARVO on page 3 and Clare on page 5 with the word-for-word propaganda that they all spouted about Keith is amazing to see.”. 515 Likes, 29 Comments - Deke Sharon (@dekesharon) on Instagram: “So after the NXIVM spying-on-me revelations, I went online to see what the world thinks my…” It seemed just as incongruent to me as it did to Deke Sharon that NXIVM would sic private investigators on an a cappella enthusiast with no other ties to NXIVM. View Deke Sharon’s profile on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional community. He told me how much he invested and how much he made before and after. Do you really think such business people and royalty would be involved if Nxivm was a cult? How could you not know this was wrong? A good read. If you’re looking for true, unfiltered, hard-hitting journalism, then the Frank Report is one of the Internet’s best destinations for you. She was not present at either version of A Cappella Innovations. In the original 2008 thread, Daniela responded to Amy’s mention of being contacted by a NXIVM member under what Amy thought were false pretenses, and Daniela gave a confusing and seemingly self-contradictory account of why she emailed Amy. Otherwise, it looks like the screenshots are a selective representation. At the center of those beliefs is the notion that only those in-the-know will be able to bring about the program’s eventual goals of world peace and harmony (from it’s website: “NXIVM represents the change humanity needs in order to alter the course of history”); thus only by proselytizing new recruits can the organization realize its goals (I don’t know exactly how the Dalai Lama fits into this—maybe his Buddhist technology is good enough for him to do his part?) “Frankly, there’s probably no one who is less threatening than a professional a cappella musician.” Deke wrote to me. If I recall, Raniere had some interest in a capella – somehow it either tied into his time at RPI, or at least was connected to RPI. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Many of the NXIVM members would post long lists or bullet points that attempted to summarize or restate other’s arguments or sentiments and these lists subtly altered the most damaging points or omitted the unanswerable ones. From reading that thread I became pleasantly surprised about how intellectual the a capella community actually is - well, at least those who actually post on that forum. A-capella, I see is really real, all over the world! The first A Cappella Innovations gathering was unremarkable in that it was like many other a cappella events with judging panels and breakout groups that gave singing groups feedback on their singing and performances and then hosted a concert at the end of the event to showcase the talent on hand. The mistake they made was to hire Canaprobe. Edgar Bronfman Sr., Clare Bronfman’s father. Thanks for telling the story of our little moment rebuffing this disgusting cult. It seemed to be a thinly veiled recruitment effort to get colleges students into Nxivm. Our goal was to have 6 major corporations with groups at the next festival. I believe Frank has reported here that he was working for NX at the time of The first A Cappella Innovations gathering and asked Kristin Kreuk to use her “fame” to not only host, but to promote the concert, which she did like an obedient little Nx-er. This frame of viewing Mack’s screed was spelled out to other subreddit frequenters by Reddit user HehTheUrr “Jesus, I’m only 5 pages in and this is a rollercoaster ride. Not to be taken seriously, What a curious shadow, to me he looks like a man making a face, but if he looks like a child to you, maybe you know the original image. Nxivm is an ethics and critical thinking education program of international distinction and repute. Born in San Francisco, California, Deke Sharon has been performing professionally since the age of 8, and as a child toured North America and shared the stage in operas with the likes of Pavarotti. Raniere might have thought it was nonsense but it was good drama for the gullible Bronfman sisters, who perpetually felt guilty about what Keith claimed their father was doing to hurt him. His story about Edgar Bronfman paying you to go after them is just one more example of the cultic craziness. involved thousands of Scientology agents infiltrating the IRS, the DEA and other government bureaus to purge negative information about the group and to steal documents. NXIVM paid millions of dollars to private investigators to spy on its “enemies list” while Scientology had an in-house armada of spies and spent hundreds of millions on its complex of vexatious lawsuits and investigators. Sharon is referred to by some as “the father of contemporary a cappella” and is a renowned producer and coach who works with the elite of the a cappella world and has been integral in setting up and participating in reputable a cappella events like SoJam and the Harmony Sweepstakes festival. Luckily for the victims of NXIVM’s stalking activities, NXIVM happened to hire some of the most incompetent investigators in North America. And you’re two arguments are incompatible: you started out by arguing that he is “neither money driven nor power driven” … but now you’re arguing “why would he bother recruiting college students if he has so many rich and powerful clients”? NXIVM hastily undertook an effort in 2007 to organize an a cappella festival or workshop called A Cappella Innovations, a once again perfectly on-the-nose marketing name for a group that saw itself as the only hope for mankind, like a more woo version of Scientology. These are also greatly put together thoughts. He also recited a lot of the standard lines used to dismiss the skepticism of Keith et al, that they were misunderstood, words taken out of context, concepts too big to be taken in, etc.” In addition, Amy said she felt that Eric was trying to sell her on something during the period of time between April and July of 2008 when Eric was contacting her. Even with their money, their minor celebrities, and their charm offensive, they still couldn’t get past the bad press and the aura of their high control group. So, misandry=bad only when shown towards Raniere and his supporters. I corresponded with Amy Malkoff who is an a cappella performer and producer. The presence of Sharon, a director and composer of a cappella music, on the NXIVM enemies list belongs in the roll call of the strangest and most random NXIVM factoids. One of the problems for me (which turned out to be an asset) was that he was not authoritative and yet people were saying a number of great things about him. “Add to it the history of the leader (Ponzi scheme, problems with DA in several states) and the organization’s ongoing legal troubles (seemingly incessant – $3 million a year in legal bills?!? And Deke's examples of ethical people in the past such as Buddha, Jesus, Ghandi etc. We’re there any other Nxivm people there? Now I gotta go dust off my Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Sweet Honey in the Rock CDs. Yale is famous for the whiffenpoof song which has been recorded by Bing Crosby and Rudy Vallee. Nxivm and a cappella both share the same goal (I think) but from opposite ends of the complexity spectrum.”. Amy relayed yet another incident where a NXIVM-affiliated man named Eric contacted her via email in an attempt to convince her that NXIVM was an amazing and harmless organization. An unlikely confluence of events had to come off for this piece of the cult’s DNA to be frozen in time and preserved for future generations. They had found new jobs and had moved on from their time in the online world they now consider a cult. Keith ended his first post with “But it is so much more important if you come to your own conclusions than if I argue with you about them. In an ironic aside. Clare wrote: Any way to find out what was said, or if anyone at NXIVM took any further action against/towards me? Clare wrote: I want you to get me an a cappella group! It must have been some conference–I wonder why an actual bioethicist, or anyone involved with medical research in Mexico, or anyone with an advanced degree in science, or anyone with experience in ethics regulation (etc.) Amy was the third person to write a post in the thread and was a voice who was consistently skeptical about NXIVM despite other posters sympathetic to NXIVM or otherwise affiliated with the group trying to derail her with red herrings and ad hominem attacks. “. This characterization is heavily contrasted with Mark’s depiction in “Seduced”, the project featuring India Oxenberg, another child of celebrity and literal member of the royal family as the granddaughter of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia, who was also in the Raniere inner-circle but left after Mark but was at one point talked out of leaving by Vicente. I just love how these students called “naive” by either Clare or Lauren, I can’t remember which, smelled their BS immediately. What sort of “down to earth”, supremely “ethical” figure allows this sort of nonsense to be spouted about him by his followers, let alone friends? Have you tried the Saratoga In Decline blog on Way Back? “He seemed like a genial guy and I had several back and forths with him. In this way, Nxivm and a cappella are sisters—both derive from the same thing. Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Gretchen Carlson Show, Dr. Oz and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato scored the first ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which many credit Parlato with engineering. Ever since 2015, the articles published by Frank Parlato on the Frank Report have exposed major scandals and uncovered disturbing criminal enterprises such as the sex-slavery, branding cult of NXIVM. Accepting his offer and, after evaluation, being satisfied with the process and findings, which would change everything, 2. Someone posted on here or some where else a while back that the little virtue signaller was filming a terrible streetfighter movie in Thailand at the time and was even doing Girls By Design shit out there. Our next step was to bring a cappella into corporations (these are corporations in which we have contacts through Nxivm.) It’s adherents place utterly unreasonable (see my points above) stock in their leader, who seems likely to be eccentric to the extreme of having a sort of personality disorder typical of cult leaders; for Christ’s sake [sorry], he believes he invented the one and only “psychodynamic” technology that can reverse the “primitive” rise and fall of human civilizations. So that means about $30,000 for your report. I read the link provided on Reddit and it is unfortunate that lots of the comments are not accessible. Go on, Daddy! It’s too surreal. This page is dedicated to the dubious proposition that Allison Mack is not a sex trafficker. I read thru that whole fucking thing last week when it first appeared on one of the various nxivm subreddits, and I thought you were awesome. Powell sang like a bird and told police that he had been surveilling Ron Miscavige, who had recently defected from Scientology and was a dangerous critic, around the clock and had been handsomely compensated to the tune of $10,000 per week for the last 18 months. …. 2008 A Capella Supporter Blasts Clare Bronfman’s Arguments in Forum, Calls Raniere’s Self Importance ‘Silly’ – Frank Report | Investigative Journalism From Frank Parlato, Clare Bronfman’s 2008 Defense of Keith Raniere – Frank Report | Investigative Journalism From Frank Parlato, How Nxivm Monitored Deke Sharon and Others of the A Cappella Community – Frank Report | Investigative Journalism From Frank Parlato, Lauren Salzman’s Sterling Defense of Keith Raniere and Nxivm in 2008 – a Lot Has Changed Since Then – Frank Report | Investigative Journalism From Frank Parlato, https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0895917/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_1, https://web.archive.org/web/20101109232011/http://forums.casa.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4412. Along with that update to the story, we will also briefly compare and contrast NXIVM’s espionage efforts and those of Scientology. I think that NXIVM learned a hard lesson in their attempt to woo the a cappella community and refined their methods afterward. These people go on and on and on when they write. Doesn’t that drastically limit humanity’s ability to “rise to its noble possibility” (from the NXIVM website)? Although I can read the last response by Deke, I don’t intend to strain nor damage my eyes in an attempt to because it’s so blurry. She and her sister deserve the karma they’re getting and then some. I want an a cappella group! If Kim W is Ms. Mack, then she is still part of NXIVM in spirit. Mack closes ominously “That being said, I look forward to witnessing the way all of this is handled because I can promise that you are not making any fans with this behavior.”. Your link to your a cappella (I actually listened to one of your songs BTW) and a design page.”. If you’re looking for true, unfiltered, hard-hitting journalism, then the Frank Report is one of the Internet’s best destinations for you. Goon groups like “Interfor,” run by self-proclaimed Israeli spy, Juval Aviv, performed other dark ops like manufacturing evidence of criminal acts, collecting blackmail material, stalking a woman whose partner disappeared from a NXIVM course, etc. Malkoff was a participant in the RARB/CASA a cappella message board thread mentioned before. Part 2 — Claviger’s Initial Thoughts to Last 22 of Suneel’s 44 Questions Challenging Raniere Prosecution, Bangkok: Raniere’s Companies Were Pyramid Schemes, Suneel: Who Are You Kidding, Claviger — Prosecution’s False Use of ‘Pyramid’ Was Meant to Dirty up Keith Without Evidence, Even Then! When confronted about adverse court rulings that other members of the cult and Keith couldn’t lie their way out of because of legal documents available online, for example, Keith responded thusly: “With respect to legal cases: There is a substantial difference between settling a case with the judge’s subsequent order and a case that goes to trial. That strikes me as absolutely unethical. I cannot see why such a supposedly clever man would bother wasting so much time on people who leave and tracking people. Edgar was the billionaire owner of the Seagram’s liquor company and he had at one point been affiliated with NXIVM but had left and denounced the group as a cult. ‍♀️ Also, it’s all comparable to L’s and my stories about how Keith found his way into musical theatre, and honed his charms with young performers on from the locals to the CW set with a few reaches into Hollywood’s A-list. If there is no good, I start to think of censorship and bias.”. A cappella also builds humanity more from simplicity upward. This entry is also notable in that it was so beyond the pale that no one else in the thread appeared to address it. This fills in the rest of the story about who joins and who doesn’t, and why. No raindrops on rose or whiskers on kittens for him. NXIVM was objectively much more incompetent and clumsy as an organization and the results were only a pale shadow compared to an organization like Scientology. Powell told law enforcement a story about how he and his son, who was part of his investigator business, had been tailing Ron Miscavige at a mall and saw Miscavige grab his chest and lurch forward. On and on Keith went talking about “data”, the group’s buzz word for information. The lengthy writings from Clare, Lauren, Allison, Mark, and KR are unreal. Funny how each one sounded their accolades of KR in their posts as well — these reminded me of the published letters of support for KR prior to his sentencing — each similar, yet telling their own little personal story within. Television, Movies, and Broadway - TV (Pitch Battle, Pitch Slapped, The Sing-Off, Straight No Chaser) and film (Pitch Perfect 1, 2 & 3, The Social Network) and Broadway’s first … Spying on the a cappella community. The anonymous poster pointed out issues with the 2008 version of A Cappella Innovations including that the festival workshops and activities made frequent reference to Keith Raniere’s Rational Inquiry, which was described as a “patent-pending technology”, that attendees were asked for intrusive amounts of personal information like social security numbers, home addresses and other contact information, the “constant surveillance” of attendees, and that the feedback and tone of the conference, instead of focusing on notes from judges and other singers on vocal performance, focused on “existential topics”.

Deke Sharon is a prominent leader in the a cappella community who is known as “the father of contemporary a cappella” and Deke confronted the NXIVM cult in a message board thread which was detailed in the above-linked story. Sorry.”, […] Leo Helmar reported, there was a 2008 forum thread [available on Internet Archive] about an a capella event funded by […], […] Frank Report recently posted an article by Leo Helmar, entitled How A Capella Efforts of Nxivm – With Mack, Bronfman, Salzman and Raniere – Broke Into Controver…. When I asked Amy if she had gotten any further flack from NXIVM after her experience with the group on the message board, Amy expanded on an anecdote that she briefly referenced in the 2008 RARB/CASA thread. I can’t seem to locate it. 10CC was a band in the 1970s, the name was supposedly in reference to the amount of a single ejaculate. The thread, simply titled “A Cappella Innovations” was made by an anonymous poster with the screen name “Innovations Participants” who described themselves in their opening post as “a member of a collegiate a cappella group”. With its seemingly unlimited resources and connections to the entertainment and business worlds through actor devotees like Smallville’s Allison Mack and Kristin Kreuk and Battlestar Gallactica’s Nicki Clyne, and, on the business side, the heiress sisters Sara and Clare Bronfman, the group was able to gather together many prominent a cappella groups and coaches for their summit.
