"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. As I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power." - President Donald John Trump. ICHEOKU says the Michelin Tire midget at Pyongyang is definitely courting trouble and messing with the wrong man. He probably thinks Barack Obama the redline president is still in office; but unbeknownst to him there is a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald John Trump and he does not mess around. Hopefully China can rein in the little man before he commits mass suicide with his North Korean people.


"When you lose to somebody who has a 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself. So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that." - Senator Charles Schumer, Senior Senator from the State of New York and Democratic Minority Leader in the Senate. ICHEOKU says the statement spoke volume and it spoke for itself. Finally it seems the Democrats have finally turned the corner and are now ready to face up to their abysmal performance in the last presidential election by acknowledging that the American people indeed choose Trump over their Hillary Clinton. Thankfully, they will also now rest their "Russians Did It" cockamamie and find a message they can present to the people and for the good of the country.. Time to move the process forward is now as American people did not buy into the crap of a Russian collusion which they tried unsuccessfully to sell to them.



ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. Boxing champion Floyd MayWeather and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor, will fight on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. ICHEOKU says not in a position yet to place bet on who will win the fight. Salute


ICHEOKU says the time has come and the time is now for the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra to be allowed to choose their self governance and exit from Nigeria going forward.. A referendum on the future of Biafra is a legitimate demand of the people and it is their right to so do. The people of the Nation of Biafra want to of their own way because of the hostilities from other member nations of Nigeria. Let the United Nations order a referendum and let the people decide in their own Biafraexit.


"There can be no coexistence with this violence. There can be no tolerating it, no accepting it, no excusing it, and no ignoring it. Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith. Terrorists do not worship God; they worship death. If we do not act against this organized terror, then we know what will happen and what will be the end result. Terrorism's devastation of life will continue to spread, peaceful societies will become engulfed by violence, and the futures of many generations will be sadly squandered. If we do not stand in uniform condemnation of this killing, then not only will we be judged by our people, not only will we be judged by history, but we will be judged by God." - President Donald John Trump.


ICHEOKU says it is worth fighting for, self determination and it is not a crime for a people to aspire for self governance. Indigenous Peoples of Biafra are marching forward and hopefully they will soon get to the promised land. Viva Biafra.

"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew


“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ


"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


“I’m not that interested in material things. As long as I find a good bed that I can sleep in, that’s enough.” - Nicolas Berggruem, the homeless billionaire.

This is our "Dear John" letter to Senator John McCain!

Icheoku has been watching the political sparing from the Republican Party's camp of Senator John McCain for sometime now and has come to the conclusion that as Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton lost the Democratic Party's primaries, so will Senator John McCain lose the presidential election to Senator Barack Obama in November. Like the old saying, as Hilary Clinton goes, so goes John McCain! Icheoku came to this conclusion having observed the same trend and pattern employed by both Hilary and McCain's campaigns - instead of telling Americans what they will each do to help alleviate their suffering, Senator John McCain is currently towing the ill-fated path of Hilary Clinton which led her to no where. Senator John McCain is spending his "precious" campaign time attacking Barack Obama and majority of the times controverting his own very earlier held positions. Humanity usually do not learn much from history and Senator John McCain will fall victim to his feigned ignorance of historical facts, should he persist on his present course. Icheoku hopes that it is not just a bunker mentality approach which is propelling Senator John McCain to continue on this path of old politics-themed "attack your opponent" tactics. This is now obsolete and does no longer work, as America is now listening more than before; - the primaries and recent elections should have convinced you that old things have passed away in American politics. Please Senator John McCain, you have been around the block for so long to know that things are no longer what they use to be; that we are in a different time in our politics now. That whatever that was left of the old politics went away with the defeat of the Clintons in the last Democratic Party's primaries; so change your old ways or be penalized with a trouncing defeat at the polls in November. Admitted it is very hard to teach an old dog new tricks and your over twenty-six years in Washington eminently qualifies you as one; but at least you have to try, Grandpa!
Ordinarily, Icheoku would have let this phase of the campaign play itself out until both candidates select their vice presidential candidates; but Senator John McCain's constant bashing of Barack Obama against all he, McCain swore to uphold - that their campaigns will be solely based on issues important to the American people. What do we have now? What are we saddle now with? A page from Karl Rove's take no prisoner politics! Advertisements comparing Barack Obama to Paris Hilton and Brittney Spear? John McCain should know better! John McCain got it all wrong and Icheoku says that such a campaign ad is too puerile to be taken seriously by any discerning reasonable person. How dare John McCain's campaign equate our dear Senator Barack Obama with Paris Hilton and Brittney Spears - two bimbos who have nothing to their name except for their famed "notoriety"? Barack Obama is a lawyer for crying out loud! Barack Obama went to Harvard Law school too - one of the best there is in the world and came up tops, making the editorship of the reputable Harvard Law Journal! Barack Obama was a State of Illinois Senator! Barack Obama is a family man proudly raising his two daughters with dear wife Michelle Obama and very well, Icheoku must add! Barack Obama is now a United States of America Senator representing the State of Illinois in Washington DC! Barack Obama has authored two best sellers! Barack Obama is now the presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, having defeated a retinue of other egg-heads contestants during their primaries, including former first lady now Senator Hilary Clinton; and you are comparing him with Paris and Brittney? Barack Obama is an inspirational speaker whose oratory skills is yet to be matched and definitely not by your stammering! Barack Obama embodies all that is good about America! Barack Obama represents the future of America and you are so ancient! Barack Obama is an object of true admiration and adoration by so many peoples of this world! Barack Obama was not a child of privilege unlike Paris Hilton who still did not even complete her High School and yet you are comparing her with our dear Barack Obama, who in spite of many odds is a Harvard Law School trained Lawyer? Barack Obama is not a paparazzi made personality like Brittney Spear but someone whom America discovered after he gave that powerful, standing-ovation speech in Boston 2004 Democratic Party's convention. So it is an arrant nonsense for you, Senator John McCain camp to try to compare two polar opposites as there is no basis both in fact and politics to make such perfidious comparisons. Why dear John did your campaign descend so low after-all your initial promises to keep it real and straight with the American people? How would you feel if by the same token, you are compared with the late Estelle Getty, the diminutive octogenarian Sofia of the "Golden Girls" TV show? The difference between your two presidential candidacies is that whereas the crowd follows Barack Obama, Grandpa John McCain struts after any seeming crowd. The crowd be it at Oregon or Berlin goes to hear Barack Obama deliver his message of hope and change while John McCain inserts himself wherever he anticipates any crowd and force them to hear his boring message of same old same old political gibberish. Enough of this diversionary antics! Stop baiting American electorates - it is so cheap and so yesterday. Let your campaign look America in the eye and tell America what they will do to fix what is broken!
Icheoku therefore says that for bringing his campaign to such a low ebb, Senator John McCain has joined issues with so many Americans who hold Barack Obama so dear to their hearts and for genuine reason. If Senator John McCain is envious and jealous of the following Barack Obama is getting both home and abroad, Icheoku say to him, Grandpa John McCain, how much life do you still have left on this earth, in view of your very advanced age, to spend it envying the success of a grandson of yours in politics? The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 3:1 that there is a time for everything under the sun and the time for a possible John McCain presidency may have come and gone in 2000. Please Grandpa do not make us more mad than your double speaking so far has made us; the presidency is not the end of the world as we know it and there is nothing suggestive that you were destined to be a president! Our piece of advise is for you to retract from your present approach of attacking your opponent and instead tell the American people how your program is better than Barack Obama's; after-all it is supposed to be a dialogue you guys are having with the American people. You are supposed to be auditioning for the top job at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and not for a job as a political-jabber for who will out-punch the other, so let the American people know why you think you are more qualified to be elected and stop belabouring your imaginary and phantom missteps and lack of experience of your opponent. Always remember that the Clintons towed that path but met their political waterloo! It is a path to nowhere and doing something the same old fashioned way again and again, expecting different result is the easiest definition of lunacy. Grandpa Senator John Mccain, please put your brakes, take a deep breath and retool your campaign message BUT YOU MUST LEAVE OUR BARACK OBAMA ALONE!
FYI: Just in case you must know and for purposes of disclosure, Icheoku supported Senator Barack Obama during the primaries but presently is waiting on the sidelines until the vice presidential candidates are chosen by both parties; as already indicated from day one, a Senator Hilary Clinton's vice presidency is a no-go for Icheoku and our position remains unchanged! Majority of our blogging team are centrist democrats who vote not necessarily along party lines! Icheoku's bloggers are by both conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans.
