Prosecutors say a secret society within the organization branded women with a spiritual leader's initials and forced them to have sex with him.

    John Kerry became nationally known because of his appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971, and the other media appearances he made around that time. This media attention was the result of Kerry's participation in the Vietnam Veterans Against The War's (VVAW) operation called "Dewey Canyon III" which was an anti-war demonstration conducted on the mall in Washington DC. It would seem, however, that this pivotal event which catapulted John Kerry to fame was financed by Democrat Party fundraisers. From a quote from the book "Home to War" by Gerald Nicosia, pp. 104-105: Even worse, the week before Dewey...

    (snip) -- There is another echelon of society that you and I may never experience. It is reserved for the unhealthily wealthy who have long abandoned the concept of consequences. And, without consequences, these bizarre, left-leaning cretins of depravity have turned to sickening and abhorrent behavior that is just now finding exposure in the media. Such is the case with deplorable Hollywood sex cult NXIVM, whose leadership has found themselves targeted once again this week. Federal agents on Tuesday arrested NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman, her daughter Lauren Salzman and longtime bookkeeper Kathy Russell. Clare Bronfman, the longtime operations director for...
