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.

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.

"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.

SENATOR JOHN McCAIN PURCHASES SENATE SEAT FOR $20 MILLION?

Senator John Sidney McCain of Arizona, the septuagenarian wanna-be president and once presidential candidate of the Republican Party, who suffered a humiliating defeat in the hand of "THAT ONE", the then Senator presidential candidate and now President of the United States of America, Barack Obama; vowed this time, never again!
Facing an almost assured defeat in the hand of a freshman senatorial candidate J.D Hayworth; the old man McCain decided instead to haggle for the seat. He outbid ex-radio host and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, forking out a whopping twenty million dollars in the process for the right to vie for the Arizona senate seat against the Democrats in November 2010. It is also needless to say that in addition to his twenty million dollars Arizona senate seat purchase price, Senator John McCain made several pacts with the devil, renouncing all the good works which made him an endeared 'mavericky moderate' to many rational American political followers and independents alike.
It is also on record that McCain even denied ever being a maverick as well as ever stating that he is a maverick; which makes Icheoku to wonder the level of intelligence of an average Arizona Republican voter that bought this baloney of a kite, since it was not too long ago that the same McCain was taunting the "two mavericks on the presidential ticket of the republican Party - him and the hooter of Alaska Sarah Palin? But hey, a people deserve the type of leaders they get and so has Arizona Republicans refused to be properly informed or persuaded otherwise as they stuck with their old man and near-senile McCain; who as a bargain parted ways with twenty million dollars to misinform the primaries voters on his truncated record at Washington. But unlike Arizona, some states still have people who make use their brains to think for themselves; and irrespective of the money thrown therein to railroad a message across, they were still able to successfully lift the veils of the candidates to see who really gets their back. Florida is one such state as Florida's Senate Democrat Kendrick Meek defeated Jeff Greene and his $26 million war chest with Floridians saying, nope, we know the difference between night and day.
However, Icheoku gives it up for the soldier in John McCain who fought all the way to secure his Republican Party's primaries victory, in one of the biggest political battles of his life to retain his senate seat despite the onslaught of the crazed-out Tea Party fanatics. And with now assured fifth term senate run in Washington, John McCain has become undeniably an institutionalized Washington politician and should not be ever heard again, blaming Washington for failed policies, being an insider thereof. Further his primaries election victory, a precursor to his ultimate victory in November begs for the institution of term limits among Washington politicians to make room for new ideas from up and coming fresh minds. Just like the State of California and some other states locally have mandated term limit; and also since the presidency is subject to a two term eight years limit, Icheoku wonders why what is good for the goose should not be applied to the gander? Just extend the damn term limit to the national assembly to inject fresh blood and ideas; and like John McCain, Democratic Senator Patrick Leheay of Vemont won his party's primaries is also returning to Washington in November nearly guarranteed election, which he has called home since 1974.
But perhaps, at the cost of 20 million dollars, what really is the net gain of being a US Senator since no senator makes that kind of money or will ever hope to recoup such expenses; being not Nigerian senators who dip their hands in the pie at Abuja and take whatever they deemed fit does not help matters here either. So it might as well be for the right to membership of the most exclusive club in America - the 100 man senate of the United States of America; a bragging right of some sort may be! But at last our democracy has been hijacked by money bags who are trying so desperately to turn our democracy into a "moneytocracy" with the offices in the land going to the highest bidder who can out spend his opponent to push his version of his message on uncanny electorates; even where such messages are flip-flops on several past positions as John McCain just did in Arizona.
In McCain's victory speech he said, "I promise you, I take nothing for granted and will fight with every ounce of strength and conviction I possess to make the case for my continued service in the Senate." Icheoku says, but how much strength is left in a 76 year old man whose conviction is equal to no conviction at all? Anyway, congratulations Senator John McCain and all other candidates who won the right to fly their party's flag this November election.
