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.

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)


ONLY THE POOR WISH THEY HAD STUFF?

“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.

$46 MILLION PINK DIAMOND, AN EYE-POPPER FOR MILLIONS OF GRAFF-GIRLS!

If it is a truism that diamonds are girls best friend, then London based diamond dealer Mr. Laurence Graff must have 46 million girls now swooning over for his affection, no matter how shallow and trifling. Mr. Graff just doled out $46 million USD for the mother of all diamonds - the 24.78 carat Fancy Intense Pink diamond; a sort of heirloom from 60 years ago when it was first sold by American Harry Winston into a private collection.

The pink diamond, sold and purchased at a rare gems auction held in Hotel Beau Rivage, Geneva, Switzerland by Sotheby's; is graded as 'Fancy Intense Pink' by the Gemological Institute of America. It is classified as type IIa diamond and regarded as the best there is - flawless, purest and the most coveted of all diamonds in the world; which explains the jaw-dropping amount of money that changed hands as bargain for its ownership. It comes from a genre of diamonds that make up only two percent of world's diamond population which makes it as rare as they come. The ladies magnet numero uno was described by David Bennett, chairman for Europe and the Middle East at Sotheby's international jewellery department as "a stone that has huge character and appeal." 

But regrettably no one ever told the world the origins of the diamond, where the diamond originally came from; whether it was from India where pinkies were first discovered or from one of the numerous mines in Africa which have been exploited over the many years fueling ceaseless and needless blood-letting in the continent; which the movie, 'Blood Diamonds' tried to shine light on. Like the story of America, with history books replete with Christopher Columbus as discovering it and intentionally glossing over the facts that the Indians were here long before Columbus was even borntalkless of setting sail; so this diamond's history began 60 years ago when an American jeweler Winston sold it? Icheoku asks, why was the mine from which this diamond was harvested not mentioned for historical perspective or did America's Mr. Winston mine the diamond from underneath his ranch in Wyoming? We are talking about giving due credits here, people! 

'Pinky bling' was described by the Sotheby's as "exceptionally rare and truly magnificent pink diamond of the purest, vibrant hue." Enough encomiums to melt souls were stones animated and put millions of daughters of Eve into a tizzy as they profess their undying love for the diamond, masked as for Mr. Laurence Graff; the gemstones connoisseur who now owns the only very one stone which any connoisseur would die for just to get their hands on.Icheoku asks, how about that for bragging rights for Mr. Graff and also for being the payer of the most money for any diamond or jewelry or gemstone ever sold in an auction; shattering all records with his check? Finally as Icheoku says congratulations to this gemstone collector extra-ordinaire for his prized stone; we must add that millions of girls world over must be swooning at the thought of ever getting close to Mr. Graff, whether as a friend, acquaintance or 'just having any form of relationship with that man, Mr. LaurenceGraff!
