I RIDE FOR THE BRAND - REX TILLERSON

"My word is my bond. I ride for the brand. Once I am committed, I am in it for the long haul." - Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State on loyalty.


ICHEOKU says a personification of candor and honor. Nice.


THE RUSSIAN COLLUSION: DEALT A FATAL BLOW.


"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity. There is also no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election." - Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America.

ICHEOKU says this determination, for every intent and purpose, now lays to rest the "Collusion with the Russians" hogwash; as nobody can be guilty of an offense which requires awareness to ground when he or she is not aware of it. Collusion is a conspiracy and requires a proactive participation coupled with a guilty knowledge to bring about the purpose of the conspiracy. Therefore, when will the Special Counsel address the nation and tell Americans that there is no there, there, in the Russian Collusion investigation and save America further bleeding both in resources, time and unity. Enough of the sore loser antics of the Democratic Party which does not know how to take a loss and learn to work to fix what went wrong, instead of continuously pointing a finger at a mirage that is the Russian Collusion, in its bid to find something to blame for its ineptitude that led to the epochal loss of November 8th, 2016.

MORGAN TSVANGIRAI: DEAD AT 65


ICHEOKU says Uncle Robert Mugabe finaly outlived him; admitted he put up a good fight trying to be president of Zimbabwe but to no avail. He was 65 years old and died of colon cancer. May his soul now rest. Adieu Morgan.


WINTER OLYMPICS PYEONGCHANG 2018

WINTER OLYMPICS PYEONGCHANG 2018,

ICHEOKU says South Korea is hosting the world of Winter Olympics 2018. A stellar preparation and spectacular performances so far. Congratulations to the host country and the gathered athletes who are gathered in Pyeongchang South Korea for the event.


PERCHED AND REVVING TO ITS ALEINS RENDEZVOUS.

PERCHED AND REVVING TO ITS ALIENS RENDEZVOUS.

ICHEOKU says science and technology are awesome. They make the seemingly impossible, possible. Elon Musk's personal Tesla Roadster enroute to Mars atmospheric orbit. Congratulations to Elon Musk and his SpaceX and Tesla teams.


OBAMA: WHAT DID HE KNOW.


ICHEOKU says what did former President Barack Hussein Obama know and when did he know it. America people must demand of their leaders a full disclosure and full accountability in the unfolding FBI released memo scandal. Only by getting to the bottom of the matter will American people regain their confidence in their law enforcement agencies.


FBI MEMO SCANDAL: OBAMA WAS IN THE LOOP


"POTUS WANTS TO KNOW EVERYTHING WE ARE DOING." - Lisa Page to boyfriend Peter Strzok, two FBI officials.


ICHEOKU says the POTUS then was President Barack Hussein Obama, who had previously denied and lied to the American people that he does not dabble into any FBI's investigative matter. Really?


THE MEMO: THE CRITICAL AND CRUCIAL POINTS.


Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe admitted that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISA court without the Michael Steele's dossier information. Michael Steele was engaged by Hillary Clinton's campaign and Fusion GPS to obtain dirt information on then candidate Donald John Trump which subsequently produced the infamous Steele's dossier. This is the but-for test: but for the dossier alleging collusion, there would not have been a Mueller's Russian investigation.


Michael Steele admitted to then Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr that he was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not, being president. Bruce Ohr's wife was also then employed by the same Fusion GPS which hired Michael Steele to help it with digging up dirt on Trump. But Bruce Ohr kept this critical bias information and the fact that his own wife was also employed in the illicit dirty job activities by the same Fusion GPS out of the Justice department application to the FISA court to obtain a surveillance warrant that led up to the Russian probe. The dossier was a bogus hatchet job manufactured to just smear and nail Trump.


ICHEOKU says the web of conspiracy could not be any clearer: first you have a desperate Michael Steele who is out to stop the election of Donald Trump at all cost and by all and every means necessary. Then you have interest of financial gains through employment, which probably persuaded the hiding of the vital information from the FISA court. The information could have negated the issuance of the warrant and without which the court might have otherwise declined its issuance. Yet somebody is saying what; that the Russian Investigation is not a big ruse or as the president would say a political WITCH hunt.

"Americans fill the world with art and music. They push the bounds of science and discovery. And they forever remind us of what we should never ever forget: The people dreamed this country. The people built this country. And it's the people who are making America great again. As long as we are proud of who we are, and what we are fighting for, there is nothing we cannot achieve. As long as we have confidence in our values, faith in our citizens, and trust in our God, we will not fail. Our families will thrive. Our people will prosper.

"I believe in America. As President of the United States, I will always put America First. Just like the leaders of other countries should put their respective countries first. But America First does not mean America alone. So together, let us resolve to use our power, our resources, and our voices, not just for ourselves, but for our people—to lift their burdens, to raise their hopes, and to empower their dreams.

POPE CONDEMNS FAKE NEWS (CNN): SEES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

POPE CONDEMNS CNN: AGREES WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

ICHEOKU says President Donald John Trump, the man who saw tomorrow, has a new ally. Pope Francis has finally seen the light on what the president has been talking about for nearly two years now. The Holy See has now come to appreciate what PDJT went through in the hands of purveyors of Fake News, which unfortunately is continuing till today. The pope called them evil and compared them to the Biblical garden of Eden's serpent, which fed Eve with Fake News about what will happen if she and Adam ate of the forbidden fruit. ICHEOKU commends the pope for finally turning around the corner. Well done papa for calling out the likes of CNN and co. Bravo.

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!

IT IS ONE YEAR TODAY, HURRAY!
ICHEOKU says congratulations to President Donald John Trump for successfully steering America's ship of States for a full year. What the naysayers said will not happen is a reality which they are finding extremely difficult to live with. But their preferences notwithstanding, Make America Great Again is on course and nobody will torpedo it. Once again, congratulations to the leader of Team MAGA on the anniversary of his being sworn in as the 45th POTUS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH

PRESIDENT TRUMP IN EXCELLENT HEALTH.

ICHEOKU says he submitted himself to the Walter Reed National hospital for a three and half hours medical examination which included his requested, but not required, mental acuity test. The president passed excellently well and aced his IQ test 30/30. ICHEOKU says yet another nail on the coffin of the fake book Fire and Fury hatchet job which had claimed unfounded story about the president's mental health. But will the possessed far left media hordes now take their chill pill and let the president be? Your guess is as good as ICHEOKU's. ICHEOKU says congratulations President Donald John Trump for once again shaming your traducers. It is now all the way live to 2020 and a second term assured victory.


ICHEOKU'S MAN OF THE YEAR 2017: PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP

ICHEOKU says following an examination of so many nominated individuals, we have determined that this year 2017's man of the year is President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. He came into office shooting on both hips and as the year draws to an end, his both guns are still firing and smoking. For standing up to the world and starring down American detractors and being the cheerleader and champion in chief of America, the leader of Team Make America Great Again has earned ICHEOKU's man of the year award 2017. Congratulations to President Donald John Trump.

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT

JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ARE ENGAGED: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says they look nice together and hopefully the crazy media and their paparazzi hordes will let them be and not force them into a life of misery or accidentally run them off the cliff. Lady Di's tragic experience is still painfully fresh till this day and no one, not ICHEOKU, wants to relive or experience such awfulness again, NEVER again. May God protect and bless the duo as they take their baby steps into the journey of of so many unknown absurdities called marriage. All the best Harry and Meghan.


AMERICA STRONG!

"Together with our allies, America's warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one — no dictator, no regime and no nation — should underestimate, ever, American resolve."


RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE FOUND!

RUSSIAN COLLUSION: EVIDENCE EMERGES!

ICHEOKU says Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton was caught pants down colluding with the Russians and she has been trying so hard to pull the wool over the eyes of American people over whodunnit. What a lying, contriving, manipulative woman who lies so easily that you wonder whether truth actually exists in her lexicon. Pitiful.

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY HILLARY CLINTON

RUSSIAN DOSSIER: PAID FOR BY CLINTON

ICHEOKU says finally the circle is about being completed and American people and the world at large will come to know who in fact did the collusion. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Congress paid Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russian dossier which former CIA chief James Clapper said was the basis for the Trump investigation. Yet, the investigation is still ongoing, despite the now established fact that the basis of it was a manufactured phony. But hey, we shall see.


ICHEOKU says still wondering WHAT HAPPENED and the reason 33,000 emails were deleted and bleach washed? Hopefully American people will soon confirm their suspicion that those shouting themselves hoax with Russian Collusion might indeed be the ones who actually colluded with the Russians. So much for the Russian Reset button. Queen Crooked Hillary Clinton, simply too crooked.


GLAD TO BE CARRIED TO FULL TERM.

GRATEFUL TO BE CARRIED FULL TERM

ICHEOKU says another lucky one that survived the abortionist's pincers from the over 360,000 unlucky ones that get flushed out each year. May God help us all have a better resolution about unwanted pregnancies.


JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.

JUST SAY NO TO KNEELING: IT IS UN-AMERICAN.
ICHEOKU says from being disrespectful to the flag to being unappreciative of the services of the military to overall being anti America; NFL players must learn to check their political activism outside the stadiums. They must not kneel on our dime. ICHEOKU supports the president 1000% on this and hereby calls on every player to respect the sensibilities of the many differently opined fans who paid to watch a game and not to be made mad by their personal political agenda.

IPOB: NOT A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION - USA


“The United States Government is strongly committed to Nigeria’s unity. Important political and economic issues affecting the Nigerian people, such as the allocation of resources, are worthwhile topics for respectful debate in a democracy. Within the context of unity, we encourage all Nigerians to support a de-escalation of tensions and peaceful resolution of grievances. The Indigenous People of Biafra is not a terrorist organization under US law.” - Russell Brooks, United States of America.

ROCKET MAN; ON A SUICIDE MISSION.



"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. That’s what the United Nations is all about; that’s what the United Nations is for. Let’s see how they do." - PDJT


DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

DONATE TODAY TO HELP REBUILD LIVES!

ICHEOKU says the Red Cross does one heck of a good job going to the assistance of the needy; so in these times of great need, occasioned by so many hurricanes, flooding and earthquake, show that you really care, donate to help the victims rebuild their wrecked lives. Remember that the Almighty rewards a cheerful giver.

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.

North Korea PUT ON NOTICE

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.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

NORTH KOREA: TOTAL ANNIHILATION NOW ON THE TABLE.

ICHEOKU says once again the diminutive midget of Pyongyang has been advised to heed the resolution of the United Nations firm stand against his continuing provocations; and that the total wiping out of his North Korea is now an option should he force the hands of the United States of American military. In a statement by the Defense Secretary Jim Maddog Mattis over its latest nuclear test, the secretary said “Our commitment among the allies are ironclad. Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming. We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so.” ICHEOKU says does not really know the joker that guy has, but whatever it is will likely very soon be forced out. The world including ICHEOKU is waiting and watching.

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 go 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 their own Biafraexit.

PDJT ISSUES A 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.

IGP OGBONNA ONOVO, THE REAL REASON WHY HE WAS REMOVED!

In a short two word sentence - election 2011. Plans by the Jonathan cabal to easily retain President Jonathan in office in 2011 caused the removal of IGP Ogbonna Onovo from office and the subsequent catapulting of AIG Hafiz Ringim to the high office of the IGP.Hafiz Ringim, a man who had once, as then commissioner of police in Bayelsa State, helped the then deputy governor Goodluck Ebelechuku Jonathan successfully execute a civilian coup alongside Olusegun Obasanjo against his former boss, then Governor DSP Diepriye Alamieyesigha. Now the same hatchet-man Hafiz Ringim is being positioned to facilitate the smooth and unhindered 'election' of President Jonathan as Nigeria's president in 2011?
Icheoku says the cries and shouting of President Jonathan about an impending free and fair elections in 2011 notwithstanding, the facts on the grounds suggests that rigging of the coming elections have already begun; with this Hafiz Ringim as the icing on the cake of a rigged election. The cries of 'free and fair election' tactics is being deployed as a ruse to confuse the Nigerian public over a predetermined outcome by a president who has learnt so well from his political godfather Aremu Matthew Okikiliomo Olusegun Obasanjo. Icheoku says any Nigerian thinking that President Goodluck Jonathan is a saint or political novitiate must be delusional and might as well have landed from Mars where he has been since 1999 not to appreciate the conniving qualities of this cool as cucumber political operative from Bayelsa State now president by providence of Nigeria Republic.
Talk about rigging the forth coming elections and the hand-writing on the wall is not good; as the promised free and fair elections cannot be guaranteed nor was it meant to be achieved. With the notorious Mr. Fix It Anthony Anenih directing operations from within the "Elect President Jonathan campaign establishment," which has now led to the appointment of Hafiz Ringim in an all out bid to retain President Jonathan in office come 2011, there is no way in Hell the 2011 election will be free and fair. What other place to start in paving the way for rigging of the coming elections than to start removing every suspected and perceived stumbling blocks that might constitute a hinderance on the way to Aso Rock 2011. Bleeping on their radar of obstacle finding is the disciplined former IGP Ogbonna Onovo who has through elections conducted in Edo, Ekiti and Anambra States proved that he cannot be compromised and that free elections is still possible in Nigeria. Team Jonathan's decision, take care of this apparent "spoiler" before it is too late as they are not ready to accept or even entertain the possibility of yielding Aso Rock in 2011 and anything that poses any possible snag or threat must and should be taken care of immediately and now. Their verdict, IGP Onovo has to go and in order to make it appear normal, the service chiefs has to follow in tandem since they are not prepared to take any chances as the 2011 date with history approaches.
Convinced that IGP Onovo will stand his ground and not play ball when the time comes, they decided to shove him aside to make way for their team-player - a tested and trusted hand who have been used before on a similar assignment. Team Jonathan settled for a junior officer, an AIG, below seven other senior DIGs and an AIG; a person who is more pliable and who can be easily used to achieve a certain predetermined outcome in 2011. Icheoku is emphatic that election riggers of Nigeria who populate the PDP especially the Tony Anenih led Jonathan's campaign insiders advisory team were responsible for the sacking of IGP Onovo to make way for their malleable right hand man Hafiz Ringim. Icheoku is urging Nigerians and the Igbo nation to disregard the dummy sold to them that it was because of the young IGP Onovo's administration inability to completely reign in banditry of armed robbery and kidnapping especially in the South East that he was removed. If still in doubt, ask yourself this innocuously simple question, if truly it was because of the unabated criminality particularly in the South East that led to IGP Onovo's removal, why then on earth was it that the same AIG Hafiz Ringim in charge of South East Zone 9, who was tasked by Onovo with policing the same South East that was now elevated to the new IGP position? Where is the logic that an AIG that had direct responsibility to tackle crimes in the South East was spared the rod but his boss in Abuja was held responsible for his deficiencies of direct policing that led to the increase crimes in the South East; and to make matters worst, the same AIG is now rewarded with the post of the IGP, instead of also being fired assuming the logic and reason of high crimes and incompetence is true.
It does not make any sense and defies every logic, clear thought and common sense applied towards understanding the permutations of IGP Onovo's removal. It would have been otherwise if another AIG of another zone was made the new IGP; but for Hafiz RIngim who was in charge of the crime-infested South East Zone 9 to now replace IGP Onovo who was accused of not ridding the South East of criminalities, it smells very fishy. Nigerians will only come to find out when it is already too late after the 2011 elections with police-assisted massive rigging that President Jonathan took them for a sucker with this firing of IGP Onovo and the appointment of Hafiz Ringim. There are smoking guns everywhere which points to some other ulterior motives behind IGP Onovo's unexplained removal and the appointment of Hafiz Ringim as a replacement, except that Nigeria lacks investigative journalists who could rifle out buried facts; as many of them have now settled for news for cash or news that comes with special packaged "transport money" and have thus compromised the quality of news they disseminate. Just try to add it up and it is impossible to get a working sum.
It would also appear that the Igbo nation has not particularly fared well under President Jonathan's administration with successive Igbo men and women removed from office and replaced by other peoples of Nigeria. Also his ministerial list did away with the Igbos occupying prominent positions unlike during the late President Yar'Adua's era and even during Olusegun Obasanjo's government when Igbos featured very prominently. Foreign Minister Ojo Maduekwe was replaced with a non Igbo; NCC Ernest Ndukwe was replaced with non Igbo; INEC's Maurice Iwu was replaced with non Igbo; NSE Onyiuke was replaced with non Igbo; Chief of Defence Staff Dike was replaced with non Igbo and now IGP Onovo has now again been replaced with non Igbo. It is also on record that no Igbo person is a member of the President's inner "kitchen" advisory team such as special adviser or assistant or a minister within the presidency.
During
Obasanjo time in office, Igbos were Central bank governor, Finance Minister, Foreign Affairs Minister, Special Assistants, Aviation Minister, Economic Adviser, Defence Minister just to name a few. During Yar'Adua's administration, Igbos were appointed as Ministers for Foreign Affairs, Education, Health, Commerce & Industry, etc as well as junior ministers. Admitted that under Jonathan administration, Igbos were appointed to Internal Affairs, Immigration and now Army Chief, but compared to other zones, the South East has not faired any much better under his administration. Even the expected elevation of Barthlomew Nnaji as Power Minister never materialized as a Northerner was later brought in to head the ministry after Jonathan relinquished control. The same applies to all the board and parastatals membership being filled by Jonathan's administration; and when you think that the second River Niger bridge is still a pipe-dream as well as the deplorable condition of roads in the South East including the Oji River power station which has not been activated, then the whole picture is painted of someone not particularly warmed up to the Igbo nation.
Icheoku also finds some agreement with the assessment of the former Lagos State commissioner of police Alhaji Abubakar Tsav that the "appointment of Hafiz Ringim, an Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) as the new Inspector-General of Police is insincere and a payback to someone who aided President Goodluck Jonathan to begin his journey to the presidency." According to Tsav, "we are talking of reformation of the police, and Mr Ogbonna Onovo who is doing his best to achieve this is not only removed but all his Deputy Inspector Generals DIGs and senior AIGs are being swept away by the tide to create room for an officer who made it possible for Jonathan to succeed Alamieyeseigha as governor after Obasanjo's carefully schemed impeachment." What a bulls-eye analysis of the politics behind IGP Onovo's removal; anyone still groping for the reason behind IGP Onovo's sudden removal should look no further as it lacked any plausible explanation due to who was appointed in his stead; - a junior officer tainted by then Deputy Governor Goodluck Jonathan's civilian coup in Bayelsa State and the unabated criminality in his controlled South East Zone 9.
It also does not make sense that an AIG who has less than 18 months to his retirement from the force would be a preferred choice for the office of the IGP when they are several DIGs and a senior AIG with much longer time left in their service; who would now be forced to summarily retire to make way for their junior officer to freely deliver on the assignment of a Jonathan's 2011 presidential election. The only plausible explanation for this convulsion is that AIG Hafiz Ringim is a hatchet-man being deployed for a specific assignment - to allow President Jonathan's people a free reign with rigging the next 2011 election in his favor, period! And if as some of his apologists are wont to argue that he rightly swept away all the chiefs including IGP Onovo, Icheoku asks why did he spare the Customs chief, a man allegedly working with a forged certificate? Why was Alhaji Abdullahi Inde Dikko not removed if the mass sacking is true and not a targeted removal just to cut some people to size and not allow them two voices in the security council? Why was Petrini retained, etc. But Nigerians should seize themselves of one commentator's observation that "Jonathan’s wholesale tinkering with the leadership of the armed forces, law enforcement and security agency adds to the perception that the first stages of the rigging may well be underway." And whether or not Icheoku's fears and suspicions as well as that of other commentators are well founded lies in the womb of time of the 2011 elections; and how it will go down as the most rigged election in the annals of Nigeria democratic history!
