"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.

The New York Times editorial recently called Senator John McCain a liar! According to one observer, Senator John McCain has recently crossed the allowed boundaries of some truth-stretching into the absurdity of outrageous lies! Senator John McCain's lies range from the annoying to the sleazy, John McCain's campaign has been a ceaseless assault on his opponent's character and policies, featuring a consistent and witting disdain for the truth. Senator John McCain campaign has decided that its candidate can't win honorably, on the issues, so it has resorted to transparent and phony diversionary lies to wriggle its' way into the White-house. Senator John McCain's strategy is an obvious attempt to camouflage the current unpopularity of his Republican brand, the insubstantiality of his vice-presidential choice, and his agreement on most issues — especially economic matters — with an exceedingly unpopular President George Walker Bush! Senator John McCain by telling so much lies, has raised serious questions about whether he has the character to lead the nation. He has defaced his beloved military code of honor. He has run a dirty campaign! According to one writer, the antics of Senator John McCain's campaign have entwined the once straight-talking Senator John McCain in a web of deception.

Icheoku now examines some of the several instances where Senator John McCain has been caught in his own very woven web of lies:-

Senator John McCain lied that Barack Obama favors a government-run health-care system and he was not telling the truth since Barack Obama wants a market-based system subsidized by the government!
Senator John McCain lied that Senator Barack Obama opposes offshore oil-drilling and building new nuclear power plants when over 38 million Americans heard Obama say in his speech at the Democratic National Convention that he was open to offshore oil-drilling and building new nuclear-power plants!
Senator John McCain ran a television ad lying that Obama favored "comprehensive" sex education for kindergartners ;when Barack Obama favored a bill that would have warned kindergartners about sexual predators and improper touching!
Senator John McCain lied when he falsely accused Barack Obama of referring to Sarah Palin when he said McCain's effort to repackage his economic policies was putting "lipstick on a pig"; when it was obvious what the reference was all about! Senator John McCain made a deliberate attempt to change the subject from Palin's lack of fitness for the job and the recklessness with which McCain chose her.
Senator John McCain lied when he falsely accused the "élite media" of spreading rumors about Palin's personal life when in actuality the culprits were a few bloggers and the tabloid press!
Senator John McCain lied in a Spanish language advertisement that Barack Obama opposed immigration reform when the position of Barack Obama on immigration is widely known.
Senator John McCain's lies include McCain's claim that Obama will raise taxes on the middle class when all Americans know that 95% of American will get a tax cut under a Barack Obama's presidency.
Senator John McCain lied to the women of "The View" that Sarah Palin never requested earmarks when several earmarks of the Alaskan beauty queen "airhead" including the one to study Alaskan crabs gestation habits are of common knowledge.

Senator John McCain lied about his closeness and/or relationship with George Walker Bush and his failed administration when evidence abound in every corner that he is the other evil twin of GW. Senator John McCain is MORE OF THE SAME with George W. Bush! Both men are, simply put, a two faced Janus! The only semblance of difference between John McCain and George Bush is in nomenclature of their names - just like six and half a dozen!

Also let us not forget about the rumored sexual affair between Senator John McCain and lobbyist Vicki Iseman in a recent New York Times story about Senator John McCain’s connections with lobbyists. Take for example the Keating Five scandal in 1980’s when Senator John McCain intervened with federal regulators on behalf of crooked Savings and Loan operator Charles Keating after Keating and his associates had poured some $112,000 into Senator John McCain’s campaign coffers.
A decade later, Senator John McCain once again similarly intervened on behalf of Ms. Iseman’s wealthy clients – who likewise had contributed many tens of thousands of dollars to his campaigns. In 1998, when Senator Jon McCain chaired the Commerce Committee, which had oversight over the Federal Communication Commission (FCC), he wrote an extraordinary letter to the FCC Chair that threatened to overhaul the Commission if it closed a regulatory loophole that would allow one of Iseman’s clients to circumvent federal rules barring companies from owning more than one television station in a single city. The following year, McCain wrote to the FCC on behalf of Ms Iseman client Lowell W. Paxson who was trying to get approval for adding a Pittsburgh television station to his media empire. Senator John McCain lied that he was only urging the FCC to reach a decision on the acquisition after a long delay and was not advocating on Paxson’s behalf. It didn’t take an Einstein to read between the lines the intent of a letter from the Chair of the Commerce Committee which demanded that “each member of the commission” write to him “no later than the close of business on Tuesday, December 14, 1999, whether you have already acted upon these applications.” The FCC Chair wrote back to McCain to protest that “Your letter comes at a sensitive time in the deliberative process as the individual commissioners finalize their views and their votes on this matter. I must respectfully note that it is highly unusual for the commissioners to be asked to publicly announce their voting status on a matter that is still pending.”
After publication of the Times story, Senator John McCain again lied that he has never met with Paxson or a representative of Paxson’s company before dispatching his letter. Yet Paxson said in a widely reported interview that he had met personally with McCain on the matter. The Senator was contradicted by yet another source: himself. According to a 2002 deposition that Newsweek uncovered, Senator John McCain said, “I was contacted by Mr. Paxson on this issue.…He wanted their approval very bad for purposes of his business.”

Senator John McCain's campaign also lied that his staff “met with public broadcasting activists from the Pittsburgh area” who opposed the Paxson acquisition. But Jerold Starr, the co-chairman of the Save Pittsburgh Public Television Campaign, who led the activist opposition, said flatly that “It never happened.” According to an ABC News report by Avni Patel, Starr said “we had no idea that McCain had any interest in our local matter.” Starr further condemned as “a bold face lie” the assertion by the McCain campaign that the opposition, like Paxson, was seeking to expedite the stalled FCC proceedings. “The longer it took, the better our chances were,” Starr said. “It meant that the FCC was paying serious attention to our complaint.” Senator John McCain was not advocating for the common good in these cases.

Senator John McCain lied about the tight relationship he has with lobbyists which continues through his presidential campaign. According to former Washington Post reporter Thomas Edsall, “ eleven (11) current or former lobbyists are working for or advising Senator John McCain's campaign. Responding to this infusion of so many lobbyist in his campaign, Senator John McCain lied that they constitute no problem and that “these people (lobbyists) have honorable records, and they’re honorable people, and I’m proud to have them as part of my team.” Icheoku says that if lobbyist are honorable people then the meaning of honor has to be redefined!

Senator John McCain has also been described by one political commentator as a supremely self-righteous individual who believes himself to be above the rules and regulations he imposes on others. Stating further that this holier than thou attitude of Senator John McCain translates to arrogance of power which would make Senator John McCain a very dangerous man as president of the United States. Icheoku prays that we never get to see this nightmare come to pass hence it should be averted at all cost!

Senator John McCain's propensity to lie has become what political junkies call a meme, an idea or behavior that runs, seemingly unstoppably, from one media outlet to another. One of the pleasures of the 2008 campaign wrote one analyst is watching all those who once admired Senator John McCain for his truthfulness realize the true depths of his moral depravity! Senator John McCain lie so much that he has taken to lying about his own lies.

The current lie du jour of the Senator John McCain campaign is that their man will aggressively take on the greed that is causing the collapse on Wall Street. Given McCain's lack of interest in the economy, wealthy campaign contributors, and ideological hostility toward government regulation, this stance is laughable.

Senator John McCain's campaign lies include false estimates of the size of the crowds attending Republican rallies and that Sarah Palin sold the Alaska governor's plane on eBay all geared to make the Republican ticket more humane and moderate than it actually is.

One commentator has this to say about the lying-abilities of Senator John McCain, "like so many of John McCain's critics, I find myself astonished at the sheer brazenness of the lies he tells". There is no way a truthful Republican can be elected in 2008 judging from the deep hole the inept George Walker Bush has sunk the Republican brand. McCain wants to win. Therefore he lies. In the past, Senator John McCain might have gotten away with lying occasionally but not this time, especially in view of the blatant and brazen lies he has safely woven himself with. Senator John McCain's campaign just settled upon one serial lie after another because the precarious political reality he finds himself demands that if he is to win he has no choice but to lie!

The good news however is that Senator John McCain is being called out on his dishonesty continuously and consistently as he tells them. According to Michael Tomasky, the editor of the Guardian America, Senator John McCain is "the biggest liar in modern political history"! Continuing he stated that there are indeed so many lies associated with Senator John McCain's campaign that one can pick and choose at random. America the choice is yours to either be sold on all the lies of Senator John McCain or tell him that we are not all that dumb as he thinks to buy all his lies. America tell Senator John McCain that we are much smarter than the dumb whiners he thinks that we are; who can be sold on his multiple lies. NOT THIS TIME! Icheoku says the only reason a person tells a lie is because he thinks the other person is too dumb to know that he is lying. A liar is very arrogant and self-effacing! So let us tell the lying Senator John McCain that we know he is merely trying to bullshit his way through and that we have caught him in his web of lies. America, we cannot afford a lying gnome in the Whitehouse otherwise America will be seen as a nation of liars. So America, on Tuesday November 4th, 2008 say with your precious vote, No Way! No How! No McCain! No Palin!
