Bernard Madoff Psychic Profile: Peggy Rometo on Where the Money Went and More

Where did Madoff stash the billions? How much did Ruth know? Does the former NASDAQ chairman feel any shame?

Bernard L. Madoff, the man who masterminded what is believed to be the largest Ponzi scheme in history, was jailed yesterday after pleading guilty to 11 charges including securities fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. The disgraced Wall Street trader, who said he was "deeply sorry and ashamed" for swindling investors out of $65 billion, will face 150 years behind bars when he is sentenced in June. We asked wOw Intuitive Peggy Rometo how it all came to pass — and what’s in store for America’s most hated villain.

wOw: How did it all begin?

Peggy: My feeling is that Madoff was approached by an underground group, possibly originating in Argentina or somewhere else in South America, to find a simple, creative way to make some extra money. I think he saw it as easy, conceptual, no big deal. It all began with an offshore investment and willing partners. He felt very protected within this network, and well hidden from the law.

Four Ways 3D Printing May Threaten Security
"3D printers already produce everything from prosthetic hands and engine parts to basketball shoes and fancy chocolates. But as with any technological advance, new possibilities come with new perils.​​​​​​​
A new RAND paper, Additive Manufacturing in 2040: Powerful Enabler, Disruptive Threat, explores how 3D printers will affect personal, national, and international security. The paper is part of RAND's Security 2040 initiative, which looks over the horizon to anticipate future threats.
The same technology that might one day custom-print heart valves can just as easily produce gun parts. The same machines that allow astronauts on the international space station to print their own tools might also help a state like North Korea print military or industrial equipment to get around international sanctions...."

They May Cause Harm

by digby



Here's a great article on the use of tasers and what's becoming an important part of the debate --- the fact that they are killing people with them:

On a balmy fall night, two police officers in a squad car in east Bradenton spotted a man on a bicycle without a headlight.

Derrick Humbert, 38, rode a bike around town because seizures from a head injury prevented him from driving. He worked odd jobs as a short-order cook and gardener. He took care of his three kids, 2, 8 and 11, while their mother worked the evening shift at a 7-Eleven.

On this Monday in late September, he was riding home from a convenience store just after midnight when police told him to stop.

Instead, he pedaled around a corner past three houses, jumped off the bike and ran into a yard, the two officers chasing him on foot.

The Way of The Gun

Iconic characters from crime fiction's most popular writers reflect on their tools of the trade.



JOE PIKE, BusinessmanGUN: KIMBER CUSTOM II MODEL 1911 .45 ACP“The best semiautomatic combat pistol made. The lowered ejector port, full-length guide rail, beveled magazine well and superb tolerances give outstanding out-of-the-box accuracy and reliability. The big .45 ACP bullet is heavy and slow, but that’s what you want. A lighter, faster bullet will punch through a man, carrying its energy with it. A .45 hollowpoint flattens and dumps its energy into the target like a truck T-boning a Prius. You don’t need to double-tap with the .45. One shot will knock a big man off his feet. LAPD SWAT uses the Kimber. USMC Special Operations Command (Force Recon) uses it. I use it. That’s all you need to know.”WRITER: ROBERT CRAISRead on...
