In light of what we now know, this video is more than a little creepy.
The performance is at a baby shower – the baby evidently being the child of Sarah Edmondson. The song Mack – who gave up acting to sing and oversee a secret sorority (led by a man) that branded women on their pubic region – is called Lullaby – sung originally, I understand, by a group called the Dixie Chicks.
What is so creepy about this Mack video is that it features a ‘who’s who’ of Nxivm leaders – including Nancy and Lauren Salzman, who, like Mack, will be testifying against their Vanguard; the late Pam Cafritz and Barbara Jeske, and Monica Duran, Dani Padila and Rosa Laura Junco, and Esther Carlson.
In fairness to Edmondson, she was in Nxivm heart and soul five years ago, and it was natural for her to have a baby shower with her close friends. When she turned – when she woke up or made the full realization that Raniere is a stinker, she turned hard and thoroughly and sought to expose them – heart and soul.
Edmondson lived in Vancouver, and likely saw a lot less of the sinister designs and machinations of the Nxivm group – certainly a lot less than the women of Albany who she is seen with in the video.
In 2017, Edmondson left Nxivm and had a significant role in the cult’s takedown.
She is, to date, the only woman to publicly show her DOS brand – which she did to a photographer at the New York Times. Before that, she provided Frank Report with powerful and insightful information to help expose and take down the cult.
Sarah’s revealing information to me, once published, allowed many DOS slaves to escape and prompted scores of non-branded Nxivm members to quit, appalled by revelations on Frank Report which in turn helped caused Nxivm – at least in the USA – to crater.
The reason I am publishing pictures from the video – which is actually a sound track of Mack singing and a series of photographs is to give readers a glimpse of Albany Nxivm – what it looked like back on January 24, 2014 – when Nxivm was at or near its pinnacle.
Of course, Raniere, who ran it all, was not present – yet he is in spirit – and one can feel his eerie and ugly presence in some of the baby outfits and the vacant gazes of some of the women.
Below are some of the pictures Allison chose to accompany her dulcet tones. There are 66 pictures. Allison appears in about a dozen of them. It’s possible that soon after I publish this post, someone will remove the Vimeo video, so I took the trouble to capture it, so it will not be lost to the world.
A baby shower is attended – as most do – by only women. This was before DOS which was also supposed to be only women – but as Allison Mack and Lauren Salzman admitted – was secretly led by a man.
