Well as followers of this blog know I’ve had a long running interest in NXIVM. Starting when I broke the story of the NXIVM Golden Child Gailen, who turned out to be the son of NXIVM psycho Kristin Keeffe. That only became public after Keith Raniere hatched a bizarre story about a motherless boy from Michigan the cult adopted.
From then on I was hooked and the more I dug the stranger it got. Then things started happening to me. I was driven off the road, I had an attempted home invasion, my car repeatedly had its glove compartment contents thrown around but nothing was taken. Strange people started attending Mass and sat next to me while drawing on notepads of Ethics and Humanity. But then they told the NY State Police I was going to poison the drinking water of Silver Bay, site of Vanguard week and commit mass murder.
Yea folks it got weird. But then the e-mails started from you, the victims of NXIVM. At first some of you were shy, even shell shocked. Some came right out and said they thought I was part of NXIVM. But over time you came to trust me and pour your hearts out to me. Stories of broken homes and broken bodies of suicides and death of nowhere to turn, endless lawsuits, burglaries, threats and underaged girls, children really.
I encouraged many of you to go to the mainstream press where real journalist with credibility could have a greater impact than me. Some of you I sent to the police. And I struck back at NXIVM always using legal means, I dug and dug and dug.
Now I see that the Times Union is running the story
Secrets of NXIVM and Keith Raniere.
And while I don’t know what’s in it I do know many of you spoke to the Times Union and if they print what I know, this will be one damming story. One the authorities can’t turn a blind eye to, no matter how much money the Bronfman brats have.
Speaking of the brats, I see Sara Bronfman is engaged to Libya national and President of the Independent Libya Foundation (ILF) Basit Igtet.
In discussing the role of women in Islam she wrote
"Since I have returned, many people have asked or made comments to me about the role and treatment of women in Muslim countries. Certainly, through my limited time in Libya and little interaction with women from Libya and other parts of the region, I have become no expert. However, my response has been that I wouldn’t be so quick to judge their situation through the lens of Western Culture. For me, they have something we have lost in our culture, and that is the preservation and respect of the differences between our genders. Perhaps my view is naïve, but I will be surprised if I am incorrect in believing that we in the West have a lot to learn from other cultures and that the role and treatment of women is just one of the many differences we are far from understanding about Islam."
Not only that I hear she is quietly exiting NXIVM and taking her money with her. That only leaves the dark and moody sister Clare to feed the NXIVM legal war machine.
And after this story or stories are published NXIVM's going to need every dime.
Till Sunday morning when the Story comes out, Goodnight.
And now Gina, I hope your soul will rest in peace. This story is dedicated to you and all the other victims of NXIVM known and unknown.
