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.

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS MCGREGOR

IT IS GAME ON: MAYWEATHER FIGHTS McGREGOR

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


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.

NANCY PELOSI BALKS TRADITION, REFUSES TO FALL UPON HER SWORD!

Icheoku has been accused in the past of being a chauvinistic portal and that we unfairly pile on women; so as we hold-out Speaker Nancy Pelosi for not following tradition and disemboweling, we are fully aware of what could be headed our way as a result. Despite that, Icheoku will proceed with the commentary as a speaker who lost control of the house refusal to make way is a topical issue and we pride ourselves in rendering our opinion on such issues.

Historically speakers of America House of Representatives follow in the tradition of Japanese Samurais and their generals who upon losing a battle will fall on their sword and die. They resign the speaker-ship and often times outright resignation from the membership of the house generally follows. This principally is in order to save face and party, as well as take responsibility for their party's poor performance in the midterm election. They also do this to help their party reorganize and strategize; and to get its house in order for the next election. 

Last November 2, 2010 American voters developed amnesia and voted back in Republicans as the majority party in the House of Representatives. Like former speakers Newt Gingrich and David Hastert who respectively presided over their Republican party's loss of the control of the house and went into retirement, people expected Democrat Nancy Pelosi to follow suit. But lo and behold she proved herself the woman she is and clawed and scratched to retain the leadership position of the new minority democratic party. Icheoku asks, why did you not respect tradition Madam soon to be former speaker and quit or is there something in the water of power that is so intoxicating and difficult of many incumbents to just do the honorable thing? Does this clinging on power by Speaker Nancy Pelosi typify what would happen in the event a woman becomes president of America; would such madam president change the constitution and demand for a third term?

In her acceptance speech, she refused to take personal responsibility for her party's loss last November but instead blamed it on a stubbornly unemployment situation in the country. Icheoku asks Madam Speaker, on whose desk does the buck of fixing or solving the unemployment problem in America stop but the formerly democrat controlled house presided over by Madam Speaker. Icheoku likes madam Speaker a lot; but we are not love-struck on her speaker-ship as to not to call her out on this her adamant refusal to take responsibility for her party's loss of control and step aside or even quit the scene for a rebuilding of the party. Now she had to condescend, stepping down from her former high perch to displace natural minority leaders; which denudation continued, sweeping away the only black man in the power structure of the house, Jim Clyburn of South Carolina; admitted that a ceremonial new House No.3 Democrat position was created to assuage some black hurt-feelings. Icheoku asks the democrat, why  must it always be black democrats being asked to make way for their white counterparts - Governor of New York, Senate candidate Meek of Florida, President Obama at one time and now Jim Clyburn.

Icheoku however appreciates those 46 free-thinking democrats, especially Madam Speaker's only challenger Representative Heath Shuler of North Carolina, who voted their conviction in the 150-46 fall in line votes that secured the minority leadership position for Nancy Pelosi. It is the right thing to do by these democrats who truly voted as majority of them thought but lacked the balls to go the whole nine yards. It is this diddling by democrats that led to their trouncing by the more vociferous Republicans who goes to the jugular not minding obstacles on the way. it is still mind-boggling that democrats lost the last November election despite what they have been able to accomplish; judging from where things were when they took the baton from President G.W Bush and company. Election have consequences and Madam Speaker should have left the scene to make way for new leadership to emerge and steer the party back to relevance.

Having been in power for the past eight years as house leader, madam Speaker finds it very difficult to just give up all the perks and power that come with such high office; but is justifying her  position as the person to lead democrats back to majority status. Icheoku however disagrees with Madam Speaker that she is the only one that could lead democrats back to majority soon enough. Madam Speaker was one of the main reasons why democrats lost in the first place as people voted in protest against her, even when she was not on the ballot in several states, against the running democrat. But hey, democrats love their 70 year beautiful grandma Speaker and soon to be new minority leader and Icheoku wishes them well. Anyway, congratulations Madam soon to be minority leader.
