‘My sons never forgave me’: Bernie Madoff says the pain he inflicted on his victims is ‘nothing’ compared to the pain of losing his children
- Madoff sent NBC an email from prison in a bid to clear his sons’ names
- He said he struggles knowing that they never forgave him
- His son Mark, 46, killed himself in 2010 on the second anniversary of his father’s arrest for the massive Ponzi scheme
- Andrew Madoff, 48, died last September after a long battle with cancer
- The men, who both worked for their father’s company, were not charged in the scheme but questions remain over what they knew

I won’t feel guilty taking your money. You never felt guilty taking mine.
Like hell, my dad supports missionaries. He supports ass-kissers.
“I love money. I love everything about it. I bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks. Got a fur sink. An electric dog polisher. A gasoline powered turtleneck sweater. And, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too.” — Steve Martin
Psychopath school: “When caught red-handed, say that your victim was a danger to self or others.” (My dad’s alma mater.)
Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.”
What my parents are doing, by refusing to speak truth to me and my children about what was done to us, is perpetuating their legacy of lying relationships and false reputations. This is terrible in the macro view; I mean, don’t they give a shit about anybody but themselves? But they are also ensuring that their own children and grandchildren will never have honest personal relationships. A lot of people will damage the general population, but treat their OWN people differently. My parents aren’t morally equipped to even recognize that their own offspring matters! They strike at their own, succeeding generations be damned. They’ve chosen to leave this world much worse than they found it, even for their own family. Bet they’re singing “Joy to the World” right this minute. Gag.
You tell people a woman is crazy. Meanwhile, that woman does things better than anybody else. Who is crazy?
BUMP TO THE TOP, From 2/27 14
Text to my father, my mother and my brother:
“You got that trust account ready yet? I’d like to stop. 367-72-9730.”
My brother texted: “no.”
I told him to take his time. His response was unkind so I said,
“You’re a millionaire. Dad called me crazy so I can’t even be a waitress.”
(I sent that to my mom, my dad and my rich selfish brother.)
BUMP TO THE TOP

Look at this picture.
This woman is a rapist.
I AM A RAPE VICTIM.
She gets an arm around her shoulder.
Maybe her people aren’t FAKE CHRISTIANS.
My dad’s drug of choice:
To hold absolute power over others, to define what they should love or fear, to decide if they were to live or die and thereby to ravage the whole of their beings—that was a sensuality that made sexual passion look pale by comparison. It was a noneconomic conception of existence. The rewards for those followers who deserved them did not cost one penny; the only price attached to rewards was the abject suffering of some individual victim who was dominated by the recipient of the reward of power…. No, they were not dumb, these [subordinate power wielders]…. They knew a thing or two about mankind. They had reached far back into history and had dredged up from its black waters the most ancient of all realities, man’s desire to be a god…. How far wrong most people were in their appraisal of dictators! The popular opinion was that these men were hankering for their pick of beautiful virgins, good food, fragrant cigars, aged whisky, land, gold…. But what these men wanted was something much harder to get and the mere getting of it was in itself a way of keeping it. It was power, not just the exercise of bureaucratic control, but personal power to be wielded directly upon the lives and bodies of others. – Richard Wright, The Outsider, pp. 198-199
George Bush said this:
“Torture anywhere is an affront to human dignity everywhere,” he said, adding, “The United States is committed to the worldwide elimination of torture, and we are leading this fight by example. I call on all governments to join with the United States and the community of law-abiding nations in prohibiting, investigating, and prosecuting all acts of torture.”
…as his cronies were waterboarding and starving and freezing and RAPING people.
“Why do people lie to themselves? There are any number of reasons. Sometimes it is because a clearer awareness would compromise one’s pursuit of self interest.” (Les Visible)
Dream ad in the Newberry News: “Yes, community, I lied about my daughter because I was embarrassed that she beat me on a bet about God. She has never been crazy, is way smarter than I am, and has my blessing and financial support.”
We’re supposed to be building the Kingdom of God. We’re at the border of the promised land, and we must step into the water.
How is it that my father can LIE, LIE, LIE about me, steal my home and marriage right out from under my feet, DESTROY MY CHILDREN’S FAITH IN JESUS, TORTURE ME…and he just doesn’t have to talk about it? Is this the world we’re living in? I chose two honest Christian men and one agreed and the other one didn’t say no…to be judges. I believe Christian brothers should hold him accountable. He can’t just not talk about it for six-plus years. I’m not kidding, this is very wrong. I gave him an extra whole year, God told me to do it and Dad knows I did. I submitted to his false accusations and attacks…for him. He must speak up. He’s shrinking, day by day. To encourage my dad to face my allegations is not an affront to him. It is the most loving thing we could do.
“When you make a tyrant act like a tyrant, that’s when the tyrant actually falls.” (James Corbett)
My dad is such a perfect metaphor for the police state. I’m chuckling all the time.
Does Dad have any life insurance policies on me? It might be interesting to know.
The Killers – All These Things That I’ve Done
Text to my smarter-than-everybody father-slash-entrepreneur:
“Josh wants ten days off. David talked about snow-angels. Glad you got a boy.”
David, I was raped. My father doesn’t care and my ex-husband doesn’t care and my sons care more than they can deal with. Will you help us?
Stonewalling = the act of refusing communication, stalling, or evading, especially to avoid revealing embarrassing information and escape accountability.
The stonewaller isn’t necessarily a sociopath, but the act of intentional stonewalling contains the cold, callous attitude of the sociopath. Absence of empathy is characteristic of stonewallers, and they may relish a sadistic pleasure in watching their target twist, squirm, and make humiliating efforts and bids to be heard. Stonewallers, whether sociopaths or not, are seriously disturbed communicators. Their indifference to the stonewalled party’s experience, as noted, can be chilling. Stonewalling often reflects character pathology, in which case they won’t change—they will always be stonewallers.
From “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”
Company Way, How to Succeed in Business, Robert Morse
“Waking up is a reality bust, a shit storm, a trauma of immense proportions because it changes everything. Denial is no longer possible and it’s an ugly feeling when you start checking out your family and friends, and realise that beneath the polite, smiling, genial façade presented to outsiders…some are monsters.”
“He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me”
“I am the…truth.” (Jesus)
I’m a girl. My life was very different than yours. Remember when I used to cook you macaroni and cheese with tuna fish and cream-of-mushroom soup? Why did I cook for you? You were disadvantaged because YOU WERE A BABY and I loved you. Ever since you got a work permit…I have been the disadvantaged one. Are you a man now? Big man? I remember your diapers. I work my ass off and DAD SHOOTS ME DOWN. (You were there, you know I speak truth…) You a man? This song always makes me think of you. Remember when you and I listened to music together? Remember when YOU SMOKED DOPE?
Please ask me to speak. Please be my family again, and pay attention to me. I’ve been isolated so long that I’ve had a lot of time to learn. You need me. You do not need ME…but you need truth, and I see none in your lives. Some of you parade as Christian people yet support an anti-christ government. Do you actually SHOP FOR RECREATION? (I don’t even EAT for recreation.) PLEASE. …listen to me… please. I do not know what is planned for us by humans but I know that GOD plans great things. Please, choose his way?
I understand that the fact that Dad tried to kill me rocks your pretty world. My world was never pretty so the rocking ceased post-haste. Get over it, be true, go to Heaven, I love you, you’ll understand me there. JUST DO IT.
“One common thread runs through the many different stories of denial,” writes Stanley Cohen in States of Denial. “People, organisations, governments or whole societies are presented with information that is too disturbing, threatening or anomalous to be fully absorbed or openly acknowledged. The information is therefore somehow repressed, disavowed, pushed aside or reinterpreted. Or else the information ‘registers’ well enough, but its implications – cognitive, emotional or moral – are evaded, neutralised or rationalised away.”
The Silent Partner and the Silent Majority
“The Silent Partner is any relative who stands by silently while you are victimized, or who takes the abuser’s side against the victim. She, or he, can be the other parent, who abdicates from parental responsibility to protect the children, or worse; sacrifices their well-being in order to make her/his own life easier.”
“While encouraging an abuser to operate freely in their midst, they will not be silent when it comes to criticizing the victim. They will look the other way when the victim is being mistreated, never validating her or defending her, and then attack her when she defends herself. The one that they gossip about, smear to others, judge, and condemn will invariably be the victim rather than the abuser. In their sick, evil, twisted minds, it is the long-suffering victim who is the family “trouble-maker”, never the abuser himself.”
In many instances they are far from silent. Although they might be silent about the actual abuse inflicted upon us, they can be quite vehement in insisting that the victim is wrong for not continuing to accept it.
A manipulative narcissistic bully is likely to have the support of a protection racket.
The participants; his friends, family, colleagues, or any other people in his proximity who are amenable to his persuasive powers, are the enablers who minimize or make up excuses for his bad behavior. They will side with the bully when he abuses you, and if you complain about the mistreatment, they will berate you and give you the blame. When the narcissist wants to get rid of you, his followers, too, will shun you.
Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

Does your real life match up with your persona? It’s gonna matter really soon.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would suffice.
