Madoff’s son is dead of suspected suicide

MarkMadoff Madoffs son is dead of suspected suicide The son of a convicted Ponzi-schemer reportedly committed suicide, according to New York police Saturday.

“Mark Madoff took his own life today,” Madoff’s attorney Martin Flumenbaum said in an advisory.

Mark Madoff’s died on the second anniversary of the arrest of his father, Bernie Madoff, CNN reported.

Deputy New York Police Commissioner Paul Browne said the younger Madoff before his death emailed his wife “words to the effect that someone should check on his son.”

According to The New York Times, Madoff was found hanging by the neck from a dog leash attached to a ceiling pipe in the apartment, while his two-year-old son slept in an adjoining bedroom.

The wife of the 46-year-old Madoff was in Florida.

Brown could not confirm whether Madoff left a suicide note.

“This is a terrible and unnecessary tragedy,” Madoff’s lawyer wrote. “Mark was an innocent victim of his father’s monstrous crime who succumbed to two years of unrelenting pressure from false accusations and innuendo. We are all deeply saddened by this shocking turn of events.”

Madoff’s father in law found his body at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. His body was removed at 12:20 p.m.

Madoff’s father, Bernard, 71, was convicted for spearheading the largest Ponzi scheme in US history. He is serving a 150-year prison sentence after pleading guilty in 2009. He is imprisoned at the Butner Federal Correction Complex in North Carolina.

Madoff used a fake investment firm to hoodwink investors out of $50 billion. The scheme involved transferring funds from new investors to his older investors, saying that the monies were from investments, when in fact theywere stolen funds.

Although no criminal charges have been filed against Mark Madoff, he was being sued in a civil action by the US trustee trying to recover money for victims.

The trustee, Irving Picard, charges that Mark and other close family members benefited from the flood of ill-gotten gains that Madoff senior secured, regardless of whether or not they knew about the fraud.

Flumenbaum, the family lawyer, said it was the father’s excesses that helped bring about “a terrible and unnecessary tragedy” in Mark Madoff’s death.

“Mark was an innocent victim of his father’s monstrous crime who succumbed to two years of unrelenting pressure from false accusations and innuendo,” he said.

US media reports described Mark Madoff as having been crushed by his father’s betrayal of trust. He and his brother Andrew had worked with their father at his Manhattan headquarters office, but say they did not know that their father was running a criminal scheme in parallel to legitimate business.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
