Allison Mack: The Gruesome Details of a Sex Slave Master – Part I

There has been much debate of late as to whether Allison Mack should be regarded more as a perpetrator or a victim (I suppose that in some sense, every “Master” in DOS probably could be considered a combination of the two).

To help sort this out, we’re going to go back and revisit the testimony of Nicole and Jaye – two of the women that were part of Allison’s slave pod.

We’ll start tonight with Nicole.

*****

To refresh everyone’s memory, here are a few pertinent facts about Nicole:
– She’s 31 years old.
– She grew up in Northern California.
– She’s a middle child – with an older sister and a younger brother.
– She attended summer acting schools throughout the time she was growing up.
– She attended college for one year – and then moved to Hollywood to pursue an acting career.
– She decided to move to New York City in 2015.
– One of her ex-boyfriends, Mark Hildreth, told her about an acting program called “The Source” – and encouraged her to sign up for the 5-week course.
– She did so – and borrowed the money for the tuition from her parents.

*****

The Source & V-Week 2015

Allison Mack was the host for “The Source” classes.

Allison Mack was not called by the prosecution to testify – neither was she called by the defense.

And Keith Raniere AKA Vanguard appeared in all the training videos that were shown throughout the course.

After she completed the program and moved to New York City, Nicole was invited to attend V-Week 2015.

She did so – and ended up sharing a room with Allison and Rebecca (Because there were only two beds in the room, she ended up sleeping with Allison).

One of her primary recollections from V-Week is how often Nancy Salzman referred to as Keith Raniere as “…the smartest man in the world”.

As she described it, that was “…weird because how would you know who the smartest man in the world is? And anyone who says that — it just sounds like bullshit to me”.

The courtroom erupted in laughter.

Part 2 Of “The Source” – And Allison To The Rescue

Allison and Nicole stayed in touch after V-Week 2015 – and Allison convinced her to take Part 2 of the “The Source” in October 2015. Allison even lent her $4,000 to cover the tuition.

Eventually, Nicole became a teacher of classes for “The Source”.

But Nicole was struggling as she tried to adapt to her new life in New York City – and by February 2016, she sent an email to Nicole in which she says that she’s thinking very seriously about committing suicide.

Allison immediately came down to New York City to comfort Nicole – and to encourage her to become a member of DOS.

Allison told her DOS “… did not have anything to do with NXIVM”.

From the works of Miss Michelle Salzman, a reputed member of DOS. The woman in the sketch is wearing the belly chain favored by some of the slaves of Keith Raniere, including Allison Mack.

Allison also talked Nicole into providing “collateral” so that she could become a member of DOS.

For her collateral, Nicole handed over several letters that implicated her parents in a series of crimes.

Nicole described her understanding of DOS as follows: “A women’s mentorship where Allison would mentor me in life and that was going to, like, push me into my fears so that I could build the kind of career that I wanted and become the kind of woman that I wanted to be; that it was a secret, I wasn’t supposed to talk about it, but that it was – like, it was a women’s organization that also – that the women were pushing through their fears to be strong and build the life they wanted to build so that they could help people”.

Allison never mentioned to Nicole that Keith Raniere was the ultimate head of DOS.

Had she done so, Nicole said she would never have joined the organization.

Allison gave Nicole her first “assignment” as a DOS slave – which was to stop having sex with Mark Hildreth.

Her next assignment was “…to be celibate for three months” – which she also agreed to do.

*****

Quitting DOS IS Not An Option – And Nicole’s Next Assignment Is Contacting Keith Raniere

Eventually, Nicole decided that DOS was not for her – and she told Allison that she was quitting the group.

Allison immediately told her that “…wasn’t an option”.

She also told Nicole that if she ever left DOS, her collateral would be released.

Allison then gave Nicole her second assignment – which was to contact Keith Raniere and get him to respond to her.

After several futile attempts, Nicole eventually got Raniere to respond.

Raniere’s response is one of his classic word salad/ Chinese fortune cookie/bullshit/deep-thought messages: “True freedom in the physical world comes from absolute commitment to a principal (sic) with no tolerance for excuses or an out, escape. Only then do we find freedom does not depend on being able to do what we want; it depends on not being able to do what we want yet still experiencing self. Love is only measured through pain. Our ability to feel human pain determines the depth and strength of our love”.

[Not surprisingly, Raniere didn’t even know the difference between a “principal” and a “principle” – which, given his 2.26 college GPA, isn’t all that surprising].

*****

So, let’s see what we’ve learned so far about Allison Mack.

She’s an actor who walked away from her career in order to become involved with Keith Raniere and his Rational Inquiry™ training program.

She started a new program to train wannabe actors called “The Source”.

She responded to a potentially suicidal woman by recruiting her to become a member of DOS.

She threatened to release Nicole’s initial collateral when Nicole announced that she wanted to quit DOS.

And she targeted Nicole to be another of Keith Raniere’s sexual conquests.

What a peach of a gal Allison is

And we haven’t gotten to the really good stuff yet…

In our next posts in the series we will actually delve into the real testimony on Allison Mack and you can judge for yourself whether she is a victim or a perpetrator – or possibly both.

  • Ok, let’s back up. Reading all the comments, there is a common question: Allison, Lauren, and the others……were they programmed to do evil, or is it their nature? Are the victims or perpetrators?

    The Patti Hearst situation comes to mind.

    We all must admit one thing: most of the players here are beautiful. There. I said it. Vangone had really good taste.

    But what psychology could trigger so many females, who could have done so much better, to do so much wrong for such an AHole?

    I asked my prettier other half. Her response: “An emptiness and weakness and lack of confidence vanguard exploited.”

    Thoughts?

    • Lost it all,

      Human beings just want to fit in and belong….

      …Just read an introductory evolutionary psychology book.

      There is no need for psycho babel and discussing early childhood.

  • “Allison gave Nicole her first “assignment” as a DOS slave – which was to stop having sex with Mark Hildreth.”

    Mark Hildreth is certainly a pretentious little bitch, but is it a yay or nay about him being a literal faggot?

    • I disagree..she didn’t have it all..her career was b-list at best and she had hit a brick wall professionally..people are quick to judge Hollywood types at face value assuming they are rich and living a life of exuberance..look behind the facade “all that glitters isn’t gold” as they say

  • The women of NXIVM just did what Keith told them to do. This was his gig and they toed the line. For example, do you really think Allison gave a flying fuck if Nicole slept with Keith? Actually, yes – she probably wanted that to happen because Keith told her that’s what he wanted.

    • You do realize Allison is an adult and not a small child? When was “he told her to do it” a reputable excuse or reason for commuting crimes? You are absolutely deluded!!

      • I meant what I typed. I did not use it as an excuse. I typed fact. Do whatever you want with it, but it is the truth. I don’t have an agenda and don’t have a dog in the fight. I’m NOT saying the women don’t deserve to be punished. I’m saying what I said.

        If you think these women made these decisions on their own or that DOS was all Allison’s idea, then you are the one who’s deluded.

  • “Allison immediately came down to New York City to comfort Nicole – and to encourage her to become a member of DOS.
    Allison told her DOS “… did not have anything to do with NXIVM”.”

    You do know that it’s what every other member of DOS was doing …including your love, Lauren

    “Allison never mentioned to Nicole that Keith Raniere was the ultimate head of DOS.”
    So did every other member…including Lauren, India and …you get the idea

    “Eventually, Nicole decided that DOS was not for her – and she told Allison that she was quitting the group.
    Allison immediately told her that “…wasn’t an option”.
    She also told Nicole that if she ever left DOS, her collateral would be released.”
    A little precision Mr ‘I twist the fact’: She never threatened to release the collateral if Nicole left.
    She said that Raniere said he wanted to release her collateral…Major difference there.

    “She’s an actor who walked away from her career in order to become involved with Keith Raniere and his Rational Inquiry™ training program.”
    Like all the victims, they all left a good life to be a member of this scam.

    “She started a new program to train wannabe actors called “The Source”.”
    No she didn’t, Raniere told her to do…He decided everything in it (like he did on everything)…You see how you twist fact? Even the prosecution recognized that Allison had NO POWER DECISION.
    She lost everything and hoped (like many of the victim) that she could do something nice but HE spoiled it (like everytime)

    You don’t sound anymore like defending Lauren but also Raniere! what a nice person you are!

    “She responded to a potentially suicidal woman by recruiting her to become a member of DOS”
    No, she didn’t she tried to cheer up Nicole first and then she proposed…I remind you that witnesses and proof show that Allison wasn’t exactly thinking straight and truly believed that this whole Dos program was beneficial for members.

    This is what happens when a severe diet and sleep deprivation are applied FOR YEARS on someone.

    It is clear, through the messages and things Allison says that she is believing that it’s going to help Nicole.

    “She threatened to release Nicole’s initial collateral when Nicole announced that she wanted to quit DOS.
    And she targeted Nicole to be another of Keith Raniere’s sexual conquests.”

    No she didn’t, the court proved it was Raniere who wanted to release the collateral.
    Nicole clearly stated that Allison said “i won’t release the collateral”. Raniere, on the other hands, said that he would release them.

    As for targeting Nicole, let’s forget the Cami’s text that show that it’s was Raniere’s decision to select who and why…He clearly stated in the text “the slave might or might not have sex with me” he state that it’s his decision.

    But please, continue to defend Raniere repeating Shadowesque’s lies.

    I can guess how you’re gonna twist the truth again…It’s obvious that truth doesn’t matter to you as you changed fact to fiction. Ignoring the court details to make it sound like Allison is the only at fault while in court it showed that she did nothing more than follow the same orders that all the other DOS member were following…Much like Lauren or India or…

    One question, why so much hate on Allison? you never even consider that anyone else was as implicate as Allison .
    You even ignore WILLINGLY the proofs to fit your agenda (whatever it is)…
    You never talk about Lauren in bad way while she did what Allison did, was having a decision power, was an executive of Nxivm, was making 100000$ as a salary, was really zealous in recruiting.
    I remind you that Lauren was amongst those who dragged Allison in this whole cult.
    She was also in the inner circle for a LONG LONG time, contrary to Allison
    She was also in the DOS reunion (those that people only remember Allison was in and pretend, despite the court indication of the contrary that she parted in creation because she said “Ok…ok”)
    She, like India and others also recruited and India’s slave was targeted as a sex slave too…BY RANIERE! It was the same in every pod.

    She (Lauren) participated in the imprisonment of Dani and was there when Cami (at around 15) was really close to Raniere (while Allison wasn’t even a member of the cult back then)

    Stick with the fact Shadow 2 And i’m waiting for “act 2” to be able to destroy your fallacious and false argument about Allison.

    I’m not expecting to be published (in comment, i mean) as lately, it seem like someone decided to consider that my point of view was nefast for the lie spread around here.

    • Also from the trial transcript of Nicole’s direct testimony:

      Q Now, in terms of the collateral, specifically, did the conversation change what you felt about the collateral?

      A Yeah. It seemed like somewhere in that mix the collateral went from something that was, like, supposed to be just you won’t talk about this and you’re just giving me more information to — so basically, it’s like to your — your word, your commitment to Allison, all of a sudden sealed the collateral. So now if I ever broke that commitment, I was breaking my word, which meant the collateral would be released. And so you were like — or I was, what? Like what?

    • Anonymous,

      The same individual can be both villain and victim.

      Keith Raniere stated to Mark Vincete that he was “trying to break her(Allison Mack).
      I believe Allison is a victim.

      Even though she is a victim, she is still culpable. Allison helped to coerce and blackmail women via collateral into sexual relations with Raniere. One of the women that were blackmailed had been the victim of sexual abuse as a child.
      Allison Mack victimized and blackmailed that woman.

      You don’t get a free pass in the criminal justice system unless, at the time of committing a crime, you had a gun to your head.

      Judges in a criminal trial are not God.

      Only Allison Mack and God know her true motivations…

      ……That is why Justice is blind. Justice is impartial and objective.

      Allison Mack’s crimes were not victimless. Allison did not simply cheat on her taxes or lied on a marriage certificate. She extorted women in to having sex with a sexual predator.

      She deserves no more or no less than the sentence the judge gives her.

    • “A little precision Mr ‘I twist the fact’: She never threatened to release the collateral if Nicole left.
      She said that Raniere said he wanted to release her collateral…Major difference there.”

      No difference at all.
      That’s how extortion works.
      Threats are made in passive sentences to hide the fact that the speaker is the person really making the threats.
      No court in America would fail to see that it was Allison Mack really making the threats.
      ————————————-
      ““Allison immediately came down to New York City to comfort Nicole – and to encourage her to become a member of DOS.
      Allison told her DOS “… did not have anything to do with NXIVM”.”

      You do know that it’s what every other member of DOS was doing …including your love, Lauren”

      So because everyone in DOS was doing the same thing Allison Mack was doing somehow makes it legal?
      All that means is that all of the top tier people in NXIVM DOS were and are extortionists and sex traffickers.
      That makes it all the more imperative to move the NXIVM prosecutions to the NDNY in Albany for more trials.
      ————————————————–
      ““She’s an actor who walked away from her career in order to become involved with Keith Raniere and his Rational Inquiry™ training program.”
      Like all the victims, they all left a good life to be a member of this scam.”

      They are NOT victims.
      They are fools who willingly choose to be CRIMINALS.
      Perpetrators of extortion, blackmail and sex trafficking.
      ————————————————
      “One question, why so much hate on Allison? you never even consider that anyone else was as implicate as Allison .”

      Allison Mack was Raniere’s First Mate in crime.
      Allison Mack literally soiled her pants to serve as Raniere’s Chief Pimp.

      As for Lauren Salzman there is some belief that she and Allison Mack competed to serve as Chief Pimp and Lauren lost out probably because Mack was even more servile to Raniere’s whims.
      And there was probably a feeling that Mack, who is younger than Salzman and an actress to boot, would attract younger women and actresses to the harem.
      And Allison Mack won the booby prize.

    • If Mack just did “what every other member of DOS was doing,” then she wouldn’t have been one the 5 key conspirators and human traffickers indicted by the grand jury that reviewed more evidence, and heard the testimony of more witnesses, than we’ll ever be aware of here – and she wouldn’t have made a deal to plead guilty to charges.

      And, again, in the US judicial system – which you’re apparently not very familiar with – and quite justly, those who carry out and facilitate the criminal orders and plans of higher-ups, are also criminally responsible. Mack, for instance, could not only have refused to do things that were wrong, but walked away – as did many others, including most of those who got into NXIVM with her.
