"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 says, looking for a Taliban-horror, look no further; and you no longer need to travel to faraway Afghanistan or Iraq or even Pakistan to understand what real horror feels and looks like. Just cross the boarder to the south and you are in a 'Taliban' country of Mexico where drug lords have deployed every imaginable instrument of horror in their terrorism-arsenal to drive home their message and keep ordinary Mexicans guessing as to what comes next.
They have publicly beheaded innocent Mexicans, mass-executed hundreds of Mexicans, lynched many Mexicans, kidnapped and shot several Mexicans including government officials; now the mother of all terrors - death by stoning and one is reminded of the adulterous woman awaiting execution by stoning in Iran. The question that boggles Icheoku is why the western media is not treating the deteriorating situation in Mexico with the seriousness and heightened attention it deserves; but are rather busy pillorying the Middle East, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Afghanistan and at the same time keeping a blind eye in what is going on in our neighborhood , the western hemisphere country of Mexico. What are they waiting for or are they waiting for President Calderon himself to be kidnapped and possibly publicly executed or beheaded for them to focus their attention or beam their searchlight on the atrocities going on in Mexico on its knees and under the jackboot of vicious drug lords. When shall enough really become enough, the world?
Their latest mayhem, the stoning to death of Tancitaro city Mayor Gustavo Sanchez and city adviser Rafael Equihua, whose crushed bodies were found dumped in the back of a pickup truck abandoned on a dirt road near the city of Uruapan; bringing to five the number of government officials that have been slain by these drug cartels within the past one month. Icheoku asks, is the government of Mexico winning this war or are they just engaged in an endless war with vicious murderers who use terror to drive home their message that they are not going away, not anytime soon. The question therefore is how long can the people of Mexico watch their sons and daughters being slaughtered in this manner with a nearly hapless government promising to rein the situation in but to no avail? How long shall the blood-letting last and when is the band-aid coming to stem the bleeding?
It will be recalled that in 2009 the city council chief, Gonzalo Paz, was kidnapped, tortured and eventually murdered; which led to the mass resignation in December of the mayor and seven other town officials following a threat to their lives by drug traffickers. The city police equally stopped coming to work due to fear for their lives as well as that of their families and were all later fired for dereliction of duty and abandonment. The now stoned to death mayor was appointed in January this year to take over from the one that resigned and it would appear that the former's resignation was for a good reason. Icheoku asks, can the government of President Calderon declare these drug infested regions of Mexico ungovernable lawless areas like Western Waziristan and let American marines come in and do the job that needed to be done. Also drones could be deployed to incinerate any armed and dangerous groups not wearing the Mexican armed forces uniform spotted parading there.
With police stations being raided and guards overpowered by armed gangs, stealing automatic rifles and handguns, bombs going off, hospitals invaded and patients tossed from top floors, tens and tens of people bound and massacred, government officials being so brazenly kidnapped and murdered and now Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, Texas, becoming one of the most dangerous cities in the world; Icheoku asks, what is the world and the United States in particular waiting before they declare a state of emergency in Mexico's lawless areas and send in the marines to take back those lost territories. It is a national security imperative that we do not harbor or tolerate criminal elements settling down so close our southern boarders as they might after consolidation, start negotiating with Al-Queida terrorists and in partnership, threaten our country. Icheoku says that the drug cartels of Mexico should be treated as the terrorists they are and fought with the same seriousness with which the Talibans and Al-Queida terrorists are being hunted in Western Waziristan, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and throughout the world.
With 28,000 Mexican citizens so far killed since 2006 wh
en military crackdown against drug cartels begun, Icheoku says it is time President Felipe Calderon manned up and owned up that his Mexican security forces are not meeting up with the challenges of the present time; and about time, he asked for some help from the big brother to the north. United States marines could use some of their training in Mexico and help arrest the fast deteriorating situation down the boarder where thousands of people are being killed, maimed and kidnapped for ransom on a near-daily basis. What if the mayhem spreads up north across the boarder or should American rather go down now to fight those drug lords in their home turf just as they are fighting the Taliban and Al-Queida in their native turfs of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Icheoku says, let us take the war on drugs down to them in Mexico now before we are forced to fight them here at home on our own soil. It is a common sensical thing to do and those drug lords are no better than those terrorists we are fighting in various foreign countries since 2001.

Mayor-elect shot as hits on Mexico politicos climb

Buzz up!0 votes

By IXTLI MARTINEZ, Associated Press Writer – 38 mins ago
OAXACA, Mexico – The mayor-elect of a small town near Oaxaca state's Pacific coast has been shot to death, the latest in a string of politicial figures who have been slain in Mexico this year.
Antonio Jimenez Banos, 47, who would have taken office in January in Martires de Tacubaya, was killed Friday afternoon by an assailant as he was returning to his farm. He was hit in the head and chest apparently with a shotgun, prosecutors said.
Eleven sitting mayors have been killed so far this year in Mexico. Two of them were also in Oaxaca, but most of the killings have been in northern states plagued by drug gang violence.
Candidates and representatives-elect have also been assassinated. The most brazen was a deadly ambush of a gubernatorial candidate earlier this year in the border state of Tamaulipas, where two drug cartels are fighting a bloody battle for territory and transit routes to the United States.
Mexican drug cartels have increasingly targeted local elected officials as they fight the government and each other. They use isolated, lightly patrolled towns to hide and to stash kidnap victims, weapons and drugs and seek to co-opt or eliminate authorities to assert their control.
Oaxaca, however, has seen a rise in political attacks on elected officials. Two mayors were killed in June, one at a political rally and the other in a dispute over a mine.
The prosecutor's office said it didn't know if the attack on Jimenez, a member of Mexico's once-dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party, was politically motivated. After Jimenez was elected in July, several groups protested the vote.
Just three days ago, Manuel Benitez Manzanares, Oaxaca's representative-elect for Mexico's Congress of Deputies, was kidnapped by a group of hooded gunmen. He was elected from President Felipe Calderon's conservative National Action Party

Yes, many deaths. Too many dead people. But remember that the vast majority of these dead were members of different drug cartels. The mexican situation is complicated: war between drug cartels trying to control the drug trafic to the drug-hungry USA citizens, and then the mexican authority trying to stop drug trafic. What I cannot accept is that innocent people have been killed by the drug criminal mercenaries. Let those criminals rotten filth to kill each other, but pray that no innocent people get caught in between. I believe there is only one solution: AMERICAN CITIZENS MUST STOP THEIR VICIOUS ADDICTION TO DRUGS. THEY HAVE THEIR HANDS STAINED WITH THE BLOOD OF INNOCENT PEOPLE MASSACRED BY CRIMINALS.
