Seagram Heiress Arrested In Sex Cult Investigation

Back in March, we brought you the story of Keith Raniere, who was the co-founder and leader of a secretive self-help cult called NXIVM, who was arrested by the FBI in Mexico and charged with sex trafficking. Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March and charged with sex trafficking, conspiracy and forced labor and is being held without bail.

Raniere allegedly created a "secret society" within the organization in 2015 that recruited women from within the group to serve as "slaves" overseen by "masters," according to prosecutors. Prosecutors allege Nxivm operated like a pyramid scheme, charging participants thousands of dollars for courses while encouraging them to sign up for more and recruit others.

While NXIVM described itself as a self-help business that has helped thousands of people "reach their potential" through various courses, the women’s-only "inner sanctum" led by Raniere is known as 'DOS', which stood for “dominus obsequious sororium" - Latin for “master over the slave women”. Once they are a member - or “slave” - they are allegedly encouraged to recruit new women into their “slave pods”, stop dating, and be on call 24 hours a day to their “master”.

As a reminder, DOS required female members to give their recruiter - or "master," naked pictures or other compromising material which could be used as blackmail before being branded with Raniere's initials below the hip using a cauterizing iron. 

Smallville actress Allison Mack who played Chloe Sullivan is (or was) allegedly a "master" in the cult, and required to obey orders from Raniere - including finding women to sleep with him. 

Mack would require that prospective "slaves" place compromising collateral into a Dropbox account -- one of whom was India Oxenberg, the daughterr of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg - who met with prosecutors in New York and presented evidence against Raniere. 

Fast forward to today when Bloomberg reports that an heiress to the Seagram fortune was arrested today in the widening probe of the "self-help organization" that prosecutors now say operated as "a secretive cult that branded its victims and forced them to participate in sexual acts."

Clare Bronfman, the daughter of former Seagram chairman Edgar M. Bronfman, was one of four women charged Tuesday in connection with the investigation of Nxivm, an Albany, New York-based multi-level marketing company founded by Keith Raniere, according to John Marzulli, a spokesman for the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney.

Smallville actress Allison Mack, an actress who allegedly recruited slaves for Raniere, was apprehended shortly after Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March and charged with similar crimes. Both have pleaded not guilty.

According to the indictment, the four arrested women - Bronfman, Kathy Russell, Lauren Salzman and Nancy Salzman - were members of Raniere’s "inner circle" along with Mack, and recruited and groomed sexual partners for him. Bronfman is one of seven children of her father, a second-generation heir who captained Seagram’s expansion during his years leading the company.

Recruits were expected to provide "collateral" before joining - including damaging information about friends and family, nude photographs and rights to assets - that could be used against them if they revealed the existence of the organization or tried to leave, prosecutors said.

The four women are scheduled to appear in federal court in Brooklyn and Albany later Tuesday.

The freak quotient is getting high. Western Civilization is in full decay and ready to crumble. Get ready for the difficult and painful transition. 

One cause and sign are these morally unmoored elites. They used to hold the line of class- intellect, taste, behavior, family, but now they’re crass dimwits.

Another cause and sign are the children of the West. They’ve been corrupted by weak parenting and hostile insurgents who want their birthright. You know who they are, the schools and media are full of them. 

Another cause and sign are weak busy  selfish men who are allowing the displacements, the selling out to occur. Sure DC, NYC lead this, but it infests every organization. Men who implement horseshit and the men who take it without a peep. Lots of men around but not a man amongst them- Drinking the Coolaid, looking the other way. Shameful. 

The solution? Checkout Jordan Peterson. He’s got some great advice.

All of you "no arrests no indictments yet, waaaaa waaaaaa" juveniles need to start paying attention.  Over the last year and a half several thousand low level pedo pimps have been arrested.  They squeal on the higher ups, such as Bronfman, one of the ruling families.  It is happening, the swamp is being drained.  But it will not be on your schedule.  Trust the plan.

Q:  Only a hundred Mil?

A:  'ONLY' a hundred Mil.

Q:  How much will Hillary and Bill's bond be you think?

A:  Zero.  They will be in GITMO--for OUR protection.

Q:  How come Manafort didn't get that deal instead of rotting in prison for only being accused of next to nothing compared to this?

A:  (1)He doesn't have enough for a hundred Mil bond.  (2) Mueller doesn't want him out talking to people.  Probably (2).

Together with his deputy, Israel Singer, Bronfman led the World Jewish Congress in becoming the preeminent international Jewish organization that it is today. Initiatives such as those seeking to help free Soviet Jewry; expose Austrian President Kurt Waldheim's Nazi past; and to help victims of the Holocaust and their heirs to acquire compensation (including by Swiss banks); raised Bronfman's international profile during the 1980s and 1990s.

" Great part is that the good Jews/ Ashkenazi will inherit from this. Those that were actually persecuted by the SS. They needed, and still need our help because of the horrible system they had in their own society. Molech worship will be table conversation in every American household. Pass the gravy please. "


(((Moloch worship)))  <== That's you, Soggy Nog.

For the elite, the biggest problem with Trump is that he's 'new rich'.  These nouveau riche are not necessarily part of all the perverted decadent shit that goes on.  I mean there was one generation before the Donald, but just one.

The Clintons at least had Yale and the Rockefellers to get them, you know, eased into the fraternity.  Trump just partied with the elite, he isn't one of them, not really.

Makes me wonder what's in those JFK files he insisted on releasing.  This ties back to that....somehow....maybe.

Makes me also wonder, for the first time and I suppose idly--what the Hell was Nixon really up to?  He had a catbird's seat to all of this garbage and he was a fucking Quaker.  I mean, what did he and Hunter Thompson REALLY talk about on that limo ride....

....curiouser and curiouser
