Well children I made my annual trek up to NXIVM Cult compound north Friday, to the once stately and dignified Silver Bay YMCA on the grubby ones birthday, just to pay my respects and maybe to give the scofflaw my loose change.
I must say although my reception was a tad chilly it was nothing compared to my encounter last year when they claimed I was conspiring with the staff to poison their drinking water in a terrorist act. Contracts inside the compound had told me attendance was a little lite this year but they weren’t kidding. Silver Bay offers an array of meeting spaces, including a 700 person Auditorium and accommodations for close to a thousand people. The place was deserted. I arrived at 12 for the main feeding of the faithful to find maybe 80 to a hundred people eating tofu, soya sausages, beans and something called nutmeat.
Looks as good as it sounds. I met some friends at the end of the road at a local store that was practically out of beer, Slim Jims and anything else the faithful could sneak in, before returning for the short walk back to the compound.
I stopped on the public road in front of the pouch where a frail looking fellow quickly came down in a golf cart to give me the evil eye, but he never interfered or really bothered me.
The place was really empty as these photos show.
On a humorous note the sign in front of the little historic church that last year said “All are welcome" was gone.
Last YearNow this year
In fact looking at the schedule of the place HERE, notice today never had any religious services scheduled and this was before the storm. Not a nice way for The Young Men’s Christian organization to act.
I heard from a friend up their today who said it was cold, rainy and downright miserable. Let’s hope Raniere doesn’t creep into any of the young female quests rooms to keep them warm.
There is a lot of material going on behind the scenes right know and I will be having a special Saratoga in Decline issue coming out Tuesday. God willing.
Till next time stay dry and be well
