Featured Investigative News NXIVM

Will Grace Park speak about role with cult leader busted for sex trafficking?

Actress Grace Park, formerly of Hawaii Five-O, was a follower of Keith Raniere for years.  Publicly she has said nothing about whether she knew Raniere was in the sex trafficking business.
There was evidence Park could have relied on to discover whether Raniere and his life-coaching programs of Nxivm led to the abuse of women. Reports of him being a pedophile have been public since 2012.
Grace Park attended classes created by a man now in jail awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
Park made videos with Raniere, wherein he discusses his philosophy and she listens with rapt admiration – sometimes seeming to go into a trance from his words or gestures. Park was happy to pay for classes, wear the yellow sash of the cult, learn the secret handshake, take off her shoes and bow before Raniere, sign an NDA to never reveal any of his teachings and even coach other students into the mysteries taught by sex-slaver Raniere.
After the blackmail and branding story broke – about how Raniere and his chief sex-slave – actress Allison Mack – ran a secret group within NXIVM, Park went silent on the subject. Some of her friends – like actresses Sarah Edmondson and Nicki Clyne – were in the master-slave cult. Edmondson quit and became a whistle blower.
Park said nothing, but she asked Raniere to take videos of them off YouTube. She did not leave NXIVM despite massive evidence of sex-slavery. When Raniere and his financier, Seagram heiress Clare Bronfman tried to put Edmondson in jail – as the feds reported in their criminal complaint  – on trumped up charges – evidently to punish her for whistle blowing – Park remained quiet.
She did not muster a word in defense of her friend, Edmondson, who Raniere threatened with imprisonment for nothing more than speaking out against human female branding.
Park called me several times. She was worried about one thing: that her name was on my websites. She wanted her name off so no one would ever know she was involved in NXIVM.
From what I have been told, Park played a tough gal on Hawaii 5-0. She was not so tough when it came to speaking out against the brutality of Keith Raniere, a man she paid as much as $100,000 to learn from.  This was not her fight.  She wanted to remain under the radar.
After I broke the blackmail and branding story – Park, then 43, did not quit NXIVM.  She quit her hit CBS hit TV show Hawaii Five-O instead.  She said she was unhappy with pay and work on the show.  Her career path mirrors actress Allison Mack’s, now head slave of NXIVM, and actress Nicki Clyne, who is Mack’s slave.  All three actresses quit TV shows at the height of their careers.
A year before she announced she was quitting Hawaii Five-0, Park made her public debut as a supporter of Raniere – on March 7, 2016, when NXIVM launched “Keith Raniere Conversations,” a “series of one-on-one interviews between ‘NXIVM founder, Keith Raniere,’ and a number of his students.  According to NXIVM’s website, Raniere ‘tackles some of the hardest ethical and social issues unfolding on the world stage.’
Raniere is now on the world stage himself having been arrested in Mexico, deported to the US and now in prison -denied bail and awaiting trial. He faces a life sentence if convicted.

Before he fled to Mexico and was arrested, Park visited Raniere in Albany, NY numerous times  She enrolled in his ‘Intensives” — high intensity courses which run 16 consecutive days. Students are taught the secret teachings of Raniere which they pledge to keep secret forever.

Prior to Hawaii Five-0 Park, Park appeared on the TV show Battlestar Galactica. DOS slave Clyne also appeared on the show but quit acting to become a full-time student of Raniere.Raniere may indeed be the head of a blackmail and sex trafficking group as is alleged by the DOJ Eastern District of New York. Grace Park may have nothing to do with sex trafficking. She may not be branded. But she says nothing one way or the other.

Keith Raniere made a famous actress – playing tough gal roles – literally hide under the bushes like a little girl afraid of the bogey man.

Editor’s note: “Annealing” refers to the process where metal or glass is heated and then allowed to cool slowly in order to remove internal stresses and toughen it. The question then becomes whether annealing occurs during Raniere branded women with a hot iron on their pubic region.

  • Dashes are meant to be used in moderation, not numerous times in one sentence. Makes your article extemely choppy and hard to follow.

  • It doesn’t feel like news with all the editorializing. Grace’s supposedly tough persona on Hawaii 5-O contrasted to her silence about Keith could be about her privacy. There are other less famous people involved also staying involved. What does grace’s fame have anything to do with singling her out on this topic. She’s not even using her fame to make influence, she’s just quiet like the rest of them. Since when did you break the story of blackmail? I’m so bummed that this outlet keeps coming up in my searches on this topic. I’m glad he’s being prosecuted add held accountable, but the sex slave stuff is only .01% of what went on at NXIVM. It’s a fascinating story that could actually help people. This is just lame.
