ICHEOKU says thanks to American Bikers, the much anticipated protest in Phoenix rally-styled speech did not materialize. May be we should have more of these Bikers in every rally. Kudos to the real bad ass men with steely balls.


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 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.

Icheoku condemns the attack on 'King' LeBron James by the owner of his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Mr. Dan Gilbert. Such a low-level descent by the mogul is uncalled for and smacks of an irate sore-loser, who is throwing tantrums and mud simply because his beloved 'wife' left him for a more promising suitor? For seven long straight years, did LeBron James labor, toil and play for this mogul, giving his Team Cavaliers all he got. For the seven long straight years did the championship ring elude James, thereby diminishing his monumental sacrifice on the court as the King remained without a crown; for what is an NBA player without a championship ring? King James did all he could for this man in the hope that his franchise will do something to turn around their fortune, but no, mother luck had already since gone from the team.
However the owner and Team Cavalier seem not to get the message that every NBA player covets the almighty championship ring, which has been the most elusive experience haunting LeBron James. This forced James to make that move to Miami, which to the Cleveland owner and hater, and fan-base is termed betrayal; while to every dispassionate mind, is a deft move whose time has since come. Icheoku understands the feeling that goes with one or owner or coach when one's flag-staff player goes off to another franchise; but a man of Mr. Dan Gilbert's standing could have done much better, managing his anger by sparing LeBron all these unnecessary tirades. Mr Gilbert would have just thanked LeBron for all that he did and tried to do in Cleveland and wished him on well. But no, everything must either be his way or the highway.
Dan Gilbert worked relentlessly to retain LeBron in his Cavaliers, and having failed, to persuade King Jamesoney to stay behind in Cleveland, he now goes off ranting like a woman-scorned. Dan Gilbert, Icheoku wants you to know that your outbursts were uncalled for and rather too rabid. Before James, was Cleveland Cavaliers; and after James Cavaliers will still be Cavaliers, as it will not just develop wings and fly away.
In Dan Gilbert's open letter to his countrymen and women(fans) on James departure, he said as follows: -
1. - "As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier." Icheoku responds that LeBron James made everyone know of his possible move to a new club, so it was preposterous of this Cavalier owner to in any way suggest that LeBron James abandoned ship? James never deserted anyone including Team Cavaliers but merely moved on in search of a more proactive team that will help him win an NBA Championship ring; and so important is this to LeBron that he had to forgo additional 30million dollars prospective offer just to be with a team with the greatest and brightest chance of winning.
2. - "Th
is was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment!." Icheoku says there is nothing narcissistic, and/or self-promotional with the manner LeBron tried to get a bang for his decision 2010. He is an incredible star with big talent and has earned the right to whatever he does that is not criminal. Or was Mr. Dan Gilbert a third-rate whimper from a man who has paid his dues and who is sort after like bees seek out nectar.
3. - "The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you." Icheoku answers Dan Gilbert that what his team had with James was a contract and that he completed the agreed number of years. So where does this betrayal come in from, as James had no contract with Team Cavaliers nor did he make any promise which he breached by moving on to Maimi. betray presupposes the defeat of an existing trust and non exists in this situation.
4. - "Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.
There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you. You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal. You have given so much and deserve so much more. Icheoku quips that LeBron James was not a coward but a brave young man who polices the hoop-land like only very few other basketball greats. Moreso, James gave the franchise his all for seven years of brave unalloyed service to Cleveland; but a tree does not make a forest? So on account of giving and receiving, James has also paid his dues; hence no one should intimidate him with such sentiment, of Cleveland fans having given James so much?.
5. - "In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight: “I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE.” Icheoku retorts why did this Dan Gilbert waited until King James LeBron left Cleveland in frustration of not ever winning a championship ring, before making this boastful vow of promise? Dan Gilbert knew clearly well that James left Cavaliers because his team could not win any championship; so is it save to volunteer that Dan Gilbert wanted LeBron gone from Cleveland, otherwise why did he not "guarantee" a championship prior to enable James to stay?
6. - "If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels. Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there. Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works. Icheoku responds that if anyone involved in this matter wants to ascend to heaven alive it is this miserable Dan Gilbert who failed to understand the purports of words he continually employed during his press conference on LeBron James departure. What is shameful or selfishness here that a world class talent served out his contract and wants to try his ring-luck elsewhere? What is selfish in a mega-star team player, just trying to do god for and by himself, deciding to relocate to another part of the country to continue playing a team-based sports?
7. - "This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become. But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma. Just watch. Sleep well, Cleveland. Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day. I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only:DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue." If this is not one of the most uncouth, thoughtless and idiotic outburst of the recent past, then Icheoku must have gone fishing. What loyalty is this Gilbert talking about since he merely had a contract that has drawn to an end and James was no longer obligated to him? Who is heartless and callous in this case other than this mogul whose acidic venomous tongue is gushing abuses and levying curses on innocent LeBron James, who did nothing against him or his former team Cavaliers. Luckily the 'curse' of Cleveland is affixed to the soil of Cleveland and cannot travel with anyone including James, hence shall remain where it.
In conclusion, after 7 long years and no championship ring, what does this human-specimen, Dan Gilbert expect from LeBron James? May be to blindly remain in Cleveland and rust away, playing for a third rate Cavaliers without a chance on earth of winning the championship. From the content of his bile-fueled address, one will discern that Dan Gilbert craved for the days of indenture servitude so that he could have iron-marked LeBron James as his perpetual basketball player without any say in how he plays, where he plays and/or how he is treated. It is always difficult to let go especially when that thing is the anchor of your life; just like LeBron James was the oxygen in the Cleveland Cavaliers lungs. But the world is dynamic and people will always move on and Lebron James has moved on with Miami Heats, case closed. May be LeBron James and millions of fans world-wide could use some apology from this hater, Dan Gilbert. Icheoku wishes LeBron James success in his newly chosen Miami Heats and pray that he can find the ever elusive championship ring soon and very soon.
