PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS DON'T PUSH ME.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SPITS FIRE: SAYS 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

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


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

MALAWI, LET THE LITTLE GIRL GO!

President Dr Bingu wa Mutharika, of the Republic of Malawi, Icheoku appeals to you to use your good offices to enlighten the anti-adoption groups in Malawi. Make it known to them that Madonna's intended adoption of their little girl will be highly beneficial to her as well as Malawi; which stands to gain more than lose with a successful adoption. Such adoption by Madonna is comparable to a family who is betrothing their daughter to a wealthy in-law? Get it?
The little girl Mercy James and her "brother" David Banda are undeniably Africans and upon majority, can decide to re-migrate back to Africa? Their story is in print and nothing can wish it away. All the sentiments notwithstanding, her odds with Madonna and in America is second to none and when compared with Malawi, Icheoku says, none existent. The opportunities are overwhelmingly better in America than Africa? It is going to be much easier for Mercy James to succeed in America than she would in Malawi with such untoward, unfavorable conditions?
Icheoku
says you already have enough starving mouths to feed, and if in doubt take a look at the beautiful starving Malawian girl, pictured left above? Your country have so many Starving Janes to worry about little Miss Sunshine, Mercy James! These left-behinds as above left, are more than sufficient in number to keep your bureacrcy incharge busy? Please direct your energies to finding solutions for the likes of this, concentrate your energies on them and not spend it worrying about a little girl whose
fortunes have smiled down from heaven. Little Mercy James has a date to keep with destiny and so, let no man sabotage that! Please Mr. President, do not allow Malawians, by your failure to intervene to save this adoption, to become known as a petty, jealous Africans who cannot stand a successful woman trying so hard to improve the lot of a little Malawi girl? Do this for little Mercy James; do it for Malawi; do it for Africa; let Madonna adopt the little girl. It can only help!
If there is any law implicated otherwise, let there be passed immediately, a bye-law or your executive order, amending such provision. This will facilitate the hands of the appellate court to intervene and save the adoption by reversing the judgment today denying the petition. Do that and you will have your name etched in later history as that fore-sighted, progressive African president of Malawi, who understood that the present world order is changing and that land boundaries are becoming unpopular? The little girl has a fate with her destiny and let no man be on her way; to simply deny her this golden opportunity which is knocking on her door, is homicidal! Posterity will not be kind to all and/or any of the conspirators and antagonists of such a Godly act of and by Madonna. Let the decision be vacated so that Madonna can have her Malawi daughter.

A Malawian court has ruled that US pop star Madonna has failed in her bid to adopt a second child from the country.

"I must decline to grant the application for the adoption of the infant," judge Esmie Chondo said after a closed-door hearing on Friday.

The application has been rejected over residency rules.

Madonna, who flew to Malawi on Sunday, was not in court to hear the ruling over Chifundo James, three. Her lawyer said she would lodge an appeal.



A local journalist reads out the judge's decision outside the courthouse
The 50-year-old singer applied to adopt Chifundo James, whose name translates into English as Mercy, on Monday.

Had her application been successful, Chifundo would have been a sister to David, the first child she adopted from the African country, and her biological children Lourdes and Rocco.

Chifundo is in the same orphanage that previously housed David, now three years old.

Trafficking concerns

Madonna's application was rejected because of a requirement that prospective parents be resident in the southern African state for 18 to 24 months.

To deny Chifundo James the opportunity to be adopted by me could expose her to hardship and emotional trauma which is otherwise avoidable

Madonna in newly-released court papers


Head to head: Madonna adoption
The rule was waived in 2006 when Madonna was allowed to take her adopted son, David Banda, to London before his adoption was finalised in 2008.

In the ruling, read out outside the court, the judge also voiced concerns about the potential ramifications a ruling in Madonna's favour might have on adopted children's human rights.

"By removing the very safeguard that is supposed to protect our children, the courts by their pronouncements could actually facilitate trafficking of children by some unscrupulous individuals," she said.

The judge also noted that Chifundo had been placed in one of Malawi's best orphanages and no longer suffered the severe poverty endured after her mother died in childbirth.

"It is evident that Chifundo James no longer is subject to the conditions of poverty at her place of birth," she said in the ruling, made at the hearing in Malawi's administrative capital Lilongwe.


HAVE YOUR SAY Surely, once adopted, she could have gotten anything money can buy. But is that really everything a child should receive?

Send us your comments According to court papers just released, Madonna had said she was "able and willing to securely provide for Chifundo James and make her a permanent and established member of my family".

"To deny Chifundo James the opportunity to be adopted by me could expose her to hardship and emotional trauma which is otherwise avoidable," she continued.

However, Madonna's efforts to adopt the three-year-old attracted criticism from some parties who said the little girl would be best off with relatives.

The performer was also accused of using her fame and money to fast-track the adoption process, a charge refuted by her spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg.

The singer, who was represented in court by her lawyer Alan Chinula, first travelled to Malawi in 2006 to film a documentary in the country.

Madonna to launch Malawi appeal

Madonna visited Malawi last month in her bid to adopt the little girl
Lawyers for the pop star Madonna are set to return to court in Malawi to appeal against a ruling denying her request to adopt a child.

Last month, the court ruled that the singer could not adopt four year-old Chifundo "Mercy" James.

It said prospective parents had to be resident in the southern African state for 18 to 24 months.

The man believed to be the little girl's father has also said that he opposes the adoption.

Madonna has already adopted a boy, David, from Malawi.

Chifundo James lives in the same orphanage from which Madonna adopted David in 2006.

She has been living there since her 18-year-old mother died shortly after giving birth.

James Kambewa, the man believed to be her father, has never met her.
