from Blunt Force Truth:
Today, the star of a popular television show was arrested on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.
According to a criminal complaint, Allison Mack, who starred as Chloe Sullivan in the hit superhero series “Smallville,” procured sex slaves for the NXIVM (pronounced “Nexium”) cult.
Founded by Keith Raniere in upstate New York, the cult was marketed as a women’s professional development organization.
Women from the inside have told much different stories.
According to prosecutors, Raniere kept at least 20 women in a rotation for sexual activity at all times, and the group had hundreds, perhaps thousands of members. He forced members to burn his initials into their pubic regions with a cauterizing pen. He subjected the women to sexual abuse and torture, such as “readiness” drills at all hours of the day leaving the women sleep-deprived, ice cold showers, and low calorie diets that left the women emaciated.
Mack was Raniere’s personal slave, but also his second in command. She procured new “clients” for him, and the women were tricked into providing embarrassing photos and filmed themselves accusing family members and friends of committing horrendous acts as “collateral” to join the group. This material would then be used against them as blackmail, which kept them from leaving the group.
The women worshipped Raniere as a god, and called him “The Vanguard.” They wore colored sashes that denoted their rank within the group, and had their own cult-like jargon.
The cult had deep pockets, thanks to the membership of Clare and Sara Bronfman, heiresses to the Seagram’s liquor fortune. Sara is described as a “humanitarian” who worked for the state department in Libya in 2011 and 2012 under the leadership of Hillary Clinton.
“I am able to devote my efforts to the development of the Chamber to support bilateral trade between Libya and the United States, it is a privilege to take on this significant role as the President of the US-Libya Chamber of Commerce,” Bronfman said in a statement in 2012.
Despite the horrors that occurred within the organization, it attracted visits from popular billionaires, actors, and world leaders.
Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group and one of the richest men in the world has been a guest of NXIVM. Actresses Kristin Kluek and Nicki Cline were also members of the group. The Dalai Llama even hosted an event with the group in 2009.
Raniere was arrested in March after fleeing to Puerta Villarta, Mexico, after a member of the cult spoke out to the press.
Mack fled the country with Raniere. Before today’s arrest, Mack was last seen chasing after the police car that hauled Raniere away after his arrest in Mexico.
