Nxivm Sex Cult Founder Keith Raniere Sentenced To 120 Years In Prison

Authored by John Vibes via TheMindUnleashed.com,

Keith Raniere, the leader of the Hollywood sex cult NXIVM, was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Tuesday. Initially, the 60-year-old cult leader was facing just 15 years for charges of sex-trafficking, racketeering, child pornography, and forced labor.

However,  Brooklyn federal court Judge Nicholas Garaufis used his discretion to increase the sentence to 120 years. Raniere was also ordered to pay a $1.72 million fine.

“To him, the brave victims … are liars. Mr. Raniere remains unmoved. … [He] has therefore failed to demonstrate remorse,” instead maintaining “to this day that he’s done nothing wrong,” Garaufis said

When Raniere spoke to the court he accused the victims of being liars.

“I do believe strongly that I’m innocent of the charges. But it’s also true I see all of this pain. They’re lying for a reason, and that reason stems from me. I do feel deep remorse, but I do not feel remorseful for the crimes I did not commit, Raniere said.

Smallville actress Allison Mack was a member of the cult and worked in a management position. As second-in-command, it was her job to lure women into the programs under the pretense of female empowerment and self-help workshops, to then convince them to sign up for a more “advanced program” called Dominus Obsequious Sororium, which required these women to basically turn the lives over to cult leader Keith Raniere. Dominus Obsequious Sororium is a quasi-Latin phrase that roughly translates to “Master Over the Slave Women.”

When women joined Raniere’s inner circle, they were forced to sign over their finances to him, starve themselves to maintain a certain weight, and he even had them surgically branded with his initials. Raniere would use blackmail to keep the women from speaking out, by collecting nude photos and damaging evidence on family members.

The cult was finally exposed when the daughter of former Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg became a member. Oxenberg told the New York Times that she became concerned after she saw that her 26-year-old daughter India was extremely emaciated from dieting, and was suffering from serious health problems.

“Some people have said this is a voluntary sorority. The women I have spoken to tell a far different story,” Oxenberg said. “Coercion is not voluntary. Extortion is not voluntary. Blackmail is not voluntary.”

When these accusations hit the news, other women, including actress Sarah Edmondson, came forward to all to tell the same story, of the blackmail, the branding, as well as the forced labor and forced sexual activity.

Raniere is also accused of having a history of pedophilia, with accusations that stretch back over 20 years, involving girls as young as 12.

In 2012, several women were interviewed by the Albany Times Union about the coercive sexual experiences that they had with Raniere when they were young girls. One of the women in the case was found dead of a gunshot wound before she was able to give the interview. Her death was ruled a suicide.

The U.S. attorney’s office requested to have Raniere held without bail in a letter to the court stating that he was a known child predator.

Disturbing MKULTRA and Child Abuse Paintings Displayed on Billboards in Italy for Affiche Week 2020

A 20 kilometer long exhibition of 40 artworks in Cremona, Italy used city billboards to display paintings by artist Nicoletta Ceccoli who specializes in disturbing MKULTRA-themed imagery, complete with clear allusions to child abuse. Here’s a look at this horrific display of elite depravation.

Sprawling over 20 km (12.5 miles) and 40 billboards, an art exhibit turned the city of Cremona, Italy into a gigantic celebration of MKULTRA. Indeed, this year’s edition of Affiche, an “atypical exhibition” using city billboards to display art, featured paintings by Nicoletta Ceccoli – a famed artist who specializes in disturbing yet blatant images referring to Monarch programming. Of course, this subject matter comes with the obligatory references to child abuse, human trafficking, and satanic rituals.

Nicoletta Ceccoli is a prolific artist whose works were shown in prestigious collections throughout the world. She’s also illustrated children’s books and worked with a long list of corporations such as Random House, Mondadori, Simon and Shuster, Barefoot Books, Greem Press, Fabbri, Arka, Fatatrac, Europacorp, Macy, Diesel, Houghton Mifflin, Henry Holt, Mc Cann Lowe, United Airlines and Vogue.

The global elite loves Ceccoli’s work and is willing to reward her with generous contracts. Are these people bothered by the fact that nearly all of her paintings refer to the most horrific practice known to mankind? No. The symbolism relating to Monarch programming is actually part of their sick “culture”. They love to be surrounded by it and they want us to be surrounded by it as well.

Nearly every painting made by this artist is replete with MK symbolism and all kinds of “codes” hinting to sadistic abuse. And, for some reason, Affiche 2020 selected these paintings to be plastered all over the city of Cremona.

Affiche 2020

On its official websiteAffiche 2020 describes itself as follows:

Affiche is an atypical exhibition, set up in the spaces that are normally reserved for advertising or electoral posters. Affiche is an exhibition that expands throughout the city with a journey of about 20 kilometers. Every year the large-format artworks of a great international illustrator are shown and his images – usually published in magazines, newspapers and books – are presented directly to passers-by, whether they are strolling, or traveling by car or bicycle. The exhibition space is the city itself.

Jeffrey Epstein Accuser News Conference: Alleges Sick Sex Assault by Woman Before Rape by Him

A woman says in a new Manhattan lawsuit that she was just 15 years old when Jeffrey Epstein raped her — and added at an emotional press conference Monday that it’s ludicrous to think that those around him were unaware of his sick deeds.

The unidentified 31-year-old woman did not mention Prince Andrew by name as she spoke about Epstein’s pals’ alleged duplicity. But the royal has been battered by a firestorm of criticism over his longtime friendship with the multimillionaire, including during the years the pedophile was abusing young girls, and has been accused himself of having sex with one of Epstein’s underage “slaves.”

“Jeffrey Epstein was only a small part of an insidious system of privilege that exploits children as sexual commodities and robs them of their youth,‘’ the woman said, accompanied by her lawyer, celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, in California.

“It was clear from the time I spent with Epstein that something was very wrong with his lifestyle, and it didn’t take a victim to see that. We were not hidden,” the woman said. “It is upsetting to me that anyone who is closely associated with Jeffrey Epstein didn’t suspect that he might be sexually abusing children.”

The woman said one of Epstein’s assistants did contact her at one point to ask her to fly to his property in the Virgin Islands — “where I was told Andrew, among others, would be a guest” — but that she declined “out of fear” after the financier and a female assistant had separately sexually assaulted her.

The woman also joined the growing chorus of public figures Monday urging Prince Andrew to talk to the FBI under oath about what he knew about Epstein. Andrew has denied being involved in any crime or having any knowledge of one committed by Epstein.

‘Prince Andrew and any others who were close to Epstein should come forward and give a statement under oath on what information they have,” the woman said. “Just because Epstein is dead doesn’t mean that others around him don’t deserve their day in court.”

Allred added that the royal was in three of Epstein’s homes and “he should have asked why these girls are here. Are they working here? What are their jobs? Where are their parents?

“It’s not something anyone should close their eyes to,” the lawyer said. “These are kids. [Andrew] has two daughters.”

Jane Doe 15 eventually found herself on board the “Lolita Express” plane after Epstein began grooming her when she was in New York for a school trip.

“When I chose a seat on the jet, Jeffrey told me that is where his good friend Bill Clinton always chose to sit,” Jane Doe 15, who is now 31 years old, said.

The woman also recalled that during a trip to Epstein’s Zorro Ranch, he “took her sexual innocence in front of a wall of framed photographs of him shaking hands with and smiling with celebrities and political leaders.”

She added that while Epstein was giving her a “tour of the bedroom”, he told Jane Doe 15 to get down and feel the carpeted floors of the room, asking if she noticed anything special about it.

After she said that it felt very soft, Epstein “laughed and said it was because the floors in the bedroom were foam mattress floors, because he liked to have girls sleep around him on the floor while he slept in the bed,” according to Jane Doe 15.

She said that she declined other invitations from Epstein and that she left Zorro Ranch “with a deep sense of shame.”

ISIS takes ‘full control’ of al-Hawl Camp Slaughtering Babies and Dousing Guards in Petrol as they Vow to Restart Jihad

The al-Hawl camp is home to 68,000 Islamic State families. It is same camp in which infamous Islamic State bride Shamima Begum was discovered. She was part of the rifle toting morality police, but was made out by her defenders to be a victim. Most important to note in this story is just how dangerous and as sinister as their male counterparts, Islamic State brides are, while social justice warriors fight for their return, painting them to be victims of their jihadist husbands. The Sun reported:

Female members of ISIS’ morality police al-Hisbah have unleashed a reign of terror within the Syrian camp by enforcing the terrorist group’s radical laws upon the population.

Their actions include “ slaughtering babies and dousing guards in petrol,” and not only guards, but women, too:

Aylul Rizgar, 30, is the camp’s senior administrator and has been repeatedly threatened with decapitation.

She told The Times: “I have lost count of the number of times the women here have told me that when Islamic State returns they’ll cut my head off and put it on a pole.”

She has also been attacked by a mum and her two daughters who bit her and doused her in petrol.

In another testimony that further demonstrates the level of danger that Islamic State brides pose to the West, a teen sex slave, Muna, described the cruelty and viciousness of Islamic States brides as she spoke of the capture of American aid worker Kayla Mueller.

Yazidi schoolgirl Muna revealed al-Baghdadi was so terrified his other wives would discover he had taken the American aid worker as his bride he banished her to prison.

The 26-year-old was held captive at the home of his deputy Abu Sayaff …..

When they first captured Kayla, ISIS fighters pulled her nails out…..She was forced to convert to Islam.

She [Muna] said al-Baghdadi had feared his wives reaction to Kayla as they were “worse than” him.

“The wives were always worse than al-Baghdadi…They were always telling the children that they were lazy and beating them…”

Pari Ibrahim, executive director of the Free Yezidi Foundation, warns that Islamic State brides are “not innocent bystanders.” She states:

“There has been no effort to understand why these ISIS brides are guilty…In some cases, [the wives] would lock our Yazidi women in the houses so they could not escape. They would force them to do manual labor, humiliate them in captivity; they were beaten and tortured by the ISIS wives.”

The dilemma of what to do with Islamic State brides and their caliphate cubs remains. Islamic State jihadists are enemy combatants, brutes and abusers of the worst kind, and their brides are no better; caution should be employed in considerations of whether they should be repatriated back to the West, which they view as enemy territory, not as their “home.”

“ISIS takes ‘full control’ of al-Hawl camp slaughtering babies and dousing guards in petrol as they vow to restart jihad,” by Alahna Kindred, The Sun, October 24, 2019:

ISIS has taken control of the Al-Hawl camp and has wasted no time slaughtering babies and dousing guards in petrol, it has been reported.

Female members of ISIS’ morality police al-Hisbah have unleashed a reign of terror within the Syrian camp by enforcing the terrorist group’s radical laws upon the population.

Al-Hisbah have ordered attacks against guards, burnt down tents, dismembered bodies, doused women in petrol and have smuggled guns into the camp as ISIS vowed to restart their jihad.

The number of jihadists escaping the camp has skyrocketed and those who are recaptured have admitted to wanting to join the Turkish-backed Islamic militants.

Aylul Rizgar, 30, is the camp’s senior administrator and has been repeatedly threatened with decapitation.

She told The Times: “I have lost count of the number of times the women here have told me that when Islamic State returns they’ll cut my head off and put it on a pole.”

She has also been attacked by a mum and her two daughters who bit her and doused her in petrol.

Al-Hawl is home to 68,000 ISIS family members after they fled the jihadists’ last stand in Baghouz earlier this year.

Among its residents include 10,100 foreign citizens, including 18 British women and children – and was where ISIS bride Shamima Begum was found in February…..

Epstein Sex Slave Victim Speaks Out in First Interview

After months of torture, suddenly there was a sliver of hope. Sarah Ransome saw the unattended quad bike, and jumped on it. She raced off, heading to a remote corner of the 70-acre Caribbean island. A strong swimmer, she planned to swim the several miles from the private island of Little St James back to the island of St Thomas.
“I had been raped three times that day,” she said. “A shark would have been my best friend at that point. I didn’t even think about it – it was just, get me away.”

She didn’t get very far.

Her host, Jeffrey Epstein, had installed video cameras all over the island, she said. Within minutes of her setting out a team had appeared to try and persuade her to return to the house.

She sought out New York-based lawyers David Boies and Sigrid McCawley and in 2017, Miss Ransome filed a lawsuit against Epstein, his confidante Ghislaine Maxwell, and three alleged assistants, claiming she was trafficked for sex over the course of seven months. Ms Maxwell denied the allegations and applied for a Motion to Dismiss the Claim.

The case was eventually settled out of court, but Miss Ransome is telling her full story for the first time in the wake of Epstein’s suicide to encourage other young women to come forward.

Her story highlights how Epstein would prey on vulnerable women, using them to expand his network around the world, and how she believes he cynically changed his tactics to target “older” women after he found himself under federal investigation.

The sad sequence of events that led Miss Ransome to Epstein’s door began in Johannesburg, where she was born to British parents. Her mother was the daughter of Lord Gordon Macpherson, the second baron of Drumochter; her father, to whom she remains close, left at an early age and moved to Cape Town.

When she was 14 she says she was raped by a wealthy schoolmate of her brother’s.  The South African police dropped the case, the first time she was let down by the authorities, and the first time she attempted suicide.

She swapped South Africa for the Scottish Highlands, moving in with her aunt and uncle just south of Inverness and attending Grantown grammar school, in Grantown-on-Spey. “I thrived,” she said. “I was head girl. I still have the badge.”

Miss Ransome was accepted to university in Edinburgh, but the costs mounted up and, unable to afford to continue, she dropped out.

Needing to make a clean break after a tumultuous relationship, fashion school in New York beckoned.

“My passion was always the fashion industry,” she said. “I’m quite spontaneous. Pack my bag, tourist visa, thinking, yay, let’s do this. I was so young and naïve. I was 22. I read about it and… New York!

“I moved here on September 1, 2006. I had no idea of the hornet’s nest I had walked into.”

Two weeks later, she was at a Manhattan nightclub, when she says she was approached by a young woman.

“She found out everything about me very quickly. I was so broken; I was an open book. It was like: ‘there’s this amazing guy, a philanthropist, this wealthy guy, he’s amazing, he’s helped me so much, he’s helped me achieve my dreams, he can help you.’”

She shakes her head when asked if there were any warning signs.

“No, not really. He was so charming, charismatic. We just went to the movies. I was 22. I didn’t really understand.

“And then a couple of days later she phoned me and said he really likes you and he wants to invite you to the island. But the only thing you can’t do: you mustn’t drink, and you are not allowed to smoke. But you’re going to go on a private plane, with a fabulous pilot, it’s going to be fun.”

In the increasingly-cold New York autumn, Miss Ransome, alone in New York, accepted the offer to fly to the Caribbean.

“The first time I knew something was weird, I was on the plane.

“During the duration of the flight everyone had fallen asleep. But I am a complete insomniac on planes. And they started having full on, hardcore sex on the bed, one of the girls and Jeffrey. There was no privacy. They did it in front of everyone.

“And from the time I got onto the island that was when the abuse began.

“They called me in, for the massages. The ‘massages’,” she said, making quotation marks in the air.

“I don’t think people quite believe that it was literally… There were some days I was raped three times a day. And then he would rape others.

“We had to be always around the house, so it would be easy to get there. For him and his friends, who he lent us out to.

“In six months I never saw him do a day’s work. I never saw him work. He was literally sexually abusing us all day long.”

Miss Ransome says she was repeatedly raped and abused on the island, from which she at one point tried to escape by swimming

She met Miss Maxwell on that first visit to the island, and she was  often present during their frequent trips to the Caribbean retreat.

“There was no romance between them,” she said. “They were never like a couple. Jeffrey and Ghislaine were best friends, or like brother and sister. Never holding hands or kissing. And she wasn’t his employee.

“Ghislaine was the socialite. She made Jeffrey look good.  I found him quite socially awkward – although in front of his guests he was charming.”

“He preyed on girls who had nothing. Who were pretty much homeless – I was pretty much homeless. I had just come from an incredibly abusive relationship in Edinburgh, I had no money,” she said.

“Jeffrey promised me a visa, and entrance to the Fashion Institute. He held all the power over me.”

By now Miss Ransome was living in an Upper East Side apartment building owned by Epstein. She had no idea that other girls were housed by Epstein in the same building.

Epstein took the trouble to ensure the girls didn’t become friends. If friendships blossomed, the girls would never see each other again.

Epstein controlled every aspect of their lives, Miss Ransome said – their homes, their food, their medical care, their physical appearances.

The willowy 5’9” young woman says she was told to lose weight, and starve herself down to eight stone. Miss Ransome laughs bitterly that she last weighed eight stone when she was aged eight.

“They would put plates of food down in front of me, and then they would be snatched away.  They would tell the chef to give me a couple of slices of cucumber, and a tomato. So I had to sit at the table, hungry, and watching everyone else eat.”

Miss Ransome, depressed, lashing out, and “playing up”, was sent to a psychiatrist – paid for by Epstein. Miss Ransome told her everything, and the psychiatrist prescribed her powerful drugs.

“Jeffrey had a whole network of people controlling us, working for him whether they realised it or not.”

In early 2007 Miss Ransome was sent to South Africa to look for a personal assistant for Epstein – he insisted that she had to be 18, and had to be found through a modelling agency.

Miss Ransome refused, knowing what the woman’s fate would be. She fled soon after, leaving New York for good – until returning to address the court last month, in the hearing to formally close Epstein’s case. He died by suspected suicide on August 10. Miss Ransome firmly believes he was murdered in jail, on behalf of powerful people wanting to silence him.

“The day Epstein was arrested was without question the best day of my life, without question,” she said.

Epstein died in prison on August 10 in what coroners ruled a suicide; Miss Ransome is among those who believe he was murdered.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Miss Ransome’s story is that, at the time, he was being investigated by federal police in Florida, following a 2005 tip-off that a teenage student was being paid to give massages to a billionaire in Palm Beach. Five months after Miss Ransome escaped, that investigation resulted in Epstein’s September 2007 plea deal, and 13 months in a private prison wing staffed by guards he paid for himself, allowed out on daily work release.

Miss Maxwell’s lawyers have denied any wrongdoing. In a motion to dismiss the 2017 suit, Miss Maxwell’s lawyer Laura Menninger, said:  “This is not and never will be a sex trafficking case. It is the story of a brief, consensual relationship between two adults occurring more than ten years ago.” 

“Ms.Ransome may have come to regret her consensual relationship with Mr. Epstein, but that does not mean she was the victim of unlawful sex trafficking or that Ms. Maxwell is somehow liable for it,” she wrote in court documents.

“To the contrary, Ms. Ransome, an adult, college-educated women, sophisticated in the ways of relationships and living large, knew exactly what she was doing.”

Miss Ransome is determined that the people around Epstein should be made to reveal what they knew.

“Jeffrey is one person in a whole spider web,” she said.

“If I, a British girl, was asked to recruit in South Africa, who else was asked? I met lots of Russians, Eastern Europeans. What about his life in Paris? You think there aren’t any 15 year olds in Paris who have been abused? Paris was a candy shop for him.”

Miss Ransome is soon to start a course in computer coding, from the home she now shares with her partner in Spain.

Her family were reluctant at her decision to come forward, but now, she says, “respect my decision” and understand her mission to encourage others to speak out.

“I don’t see us as victims,” she said. “We are survivors.”

In August, she was one of 20 women to recount their allegations against Epstein at a special hearing in a Manhattan court.

“I cannot describe to you how being in court, to address the judge, changed my state of mind. No amount of money or medication could bring me that,” she said.  “And I believe they will follow through. And bring others to justice.”
