NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.

NO MORE NATION BUILDING, JUST KILLING THE BAD GUYS.
ICHEOKU says the United States of America mandate to its military engaged overseas particularly Afghanistan is stop cuddling the bad guys, just whack them. ICHEOKU says certainly a c-change in the rules of engagement and it will certainly make it easier for our warriors who will risk less of their lives and limbs in battle fields. President Donald John Trump is definitely leading as said and providing the leadership our military needs as their Commander in Chief. Way to go.

NORTH KOREA PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.

NORTH KOREA  PUT ON NOTICE: DON'T PUSH ME.
"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.

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER

HILLARY CLINTON LOST THE ELECTION - CHARLES SCHUMER
"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.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

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


BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY

BIAFRA EXIT FROM NIGERIA: A CALL TO DUTY
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.

PDJT ISSUES VERDICT ON ISLAMIST TERRORISTS


"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.


BBOB: BRING BACK OUR BIAFRA

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.
#BringBackOurBiafra.

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“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

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

MADOFF, AN AMERICAN 419 CRIMINAL MASTERMIND!

The saga of the mother of all criminal frauds, involving a ponzi scheme wherein over $50 billion dollars was swindled from investors is gradually drawing to a close. The criminal fraudster, Mr. Bernard Madoff is going away for good and for a very very long time indeed; he may have to reincarnate to complete his possible 150 years prison sentence? This will be in addition to paying fine, restitution and forfeiture of his ill-gotten assets. Madoff pled guilty to eleven count criminal charge including securities fraud and perjury, today March 12, 2009 and was marched straight to jail to await sentence on June 16, 2009.
As a convict, Bernard Madoff had his bail immediately revoked and was taken into custody in handcuffs. In revoking his $10million dollars bail, United States District Judge Denny Chin said Madoff had the means to flee and an incentive to do so because of his age. However, Icheoku believes that the remand in custody is to primarily protect him from himself; remember Ken Lay of Enron died in suspicious circumstances before sentencing, which led to some school of thought believing he committed suicide to save his financial empire for his family? At 70 plus years old, Bernard Madoff is a good candidate for suicide, as many consider this option as more edifying rather than pine away in prison to his eventual death? Icheoku says, Bernard Madoff is now the poster-boy of the Wall Street greed and grim which induced the present economic and financial meltdown.
Most of Madoff's victims were Jewish and Jewish charities, which trusted him because he is one of them. These victims included individuals, trusts, pension funds, hedge funds and nonprofit organizations. The scheme succeeded in wiping out life savings, ruined charities and foundations; and apparently pushed at least two investors to commit suicide - one by slitting his wrists and the other by jumping in front of a moving train. Icheoku says, the ghosts of these suicides will hunt Madoff's 6x6 prison cell until he either runs amok or takes his own life; our prediction is that he will not live out his life but will meet a tragic end!
Like the notorious Nigerian 419 scheme, Madoff collected investors money under the false pretence that he was investing same in high yield return ventures; but instead, it was a Ponzi scheme (pyramid) in which early investors are paid off with money taken in from later ones. In his own bone-chilling confessional allocutus in court following his guilty plea, Madoff said in part, "When I began the Ponzi scheme I believed it would end shortly and I would be able to extricate myself and my clients from the scheme. However, this proved difficult, and ultimately impossible, and as the years went by I realized that my arrest and this day would inevitably come. I operated a Ponzi scheme through the investment advisory side of my business, Bernard L. Madoff Securities LLC, which was located here in Manhattan, New York at 885 Third Avenue. I am painfully aware that I have deeply hurt many, many people, including the members of my family, my closest friends, business associates and the thousands of clients who gave me their money. I cannot adequately express how sorry I am for what I have done. I am here today to accept responsibility for my crimes by pleading guilty and, with this plea allocution, explain the means by which I carried out and concealed my fraud". He added, "Your Honor, I hope I have conveyed with some particularity in my own words, the crimes I committed and the means by which I committed them. Thank you". (For the full alocutus, click the link at the bottom).

Icheoku says, the moral of this case is principally two-fold:- whenever something sounds too good to be true, watch out; and also nepotism is a social malady afflicting mankind. The promised returns on investment by Madoff was rather too grandiose to make any prudent financial sense but greed possibly drove some of these investors over the Madoff's cliff?
Also many of the Jewish victims possibly invested in Madoff's scheme because he is one of their own; but unfortunately their trust was misplaced as this particular Jew turned out to be a criminal. "Our own", "our own syndrome" practised by many races in this world should be stopped as the whole mankind is similarly yoked in this one world order. We should encourage diversity so that together we shall all either swim or sink as one; - gain or lose in a shared proportion? Were the funds spread out to various investment portfolios, possibly it could have guarded against such a Bernard Madoff's rip-off? Be that as it may, our prayer is that no additional victim takes his or her life as a result of this financial catastrophe; and that some of the swindled funds may eventually be recovered.
As for convict Bernard Madoff, Icheoku hopes your new 6x6 prison-cell will be as comfortable as your $7 million dollars Upper East Side penthouse? We wish you a happy extended stay in the big house!
