ROY MOORE: THE PEOPLES CHOICE

ROY MOORE: THE PEOPLES CHOICE
ICHEOKU says VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE. VOTE ROY MOORE

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.


North Korea: A STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM.

ICHEOKU says it is official, the reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jung Un has succeeded in invoking the wrath of the United States of America and now his country been put back into the list of States which sponsors terrorism. So alongside Iran, Sudan and Syria, North Korea will now pay a hefty price economically and as rightly articulated, this latest designation will further squeeze the country and force it into a better behavior.


ALEX EKWUEME IS DEAD

ICHEOKU says former Nigerian Vice President during the second republic presidency of Alhaji Shehu Shagari, Dr Alexander Ifenayichukwu Ekwueme, is dead. He died of natural causes in a London hospital. He was 85 years old. May his soul now rest. Adieu Alex.


TESLA TRUCK ARRIVES: HURRAY!

ICHEOKU says while you were distracted and not paying attention, the man who has revolutionalized driving with his zero emission and zero gasoline, 100% electric Tesla cars, has added yet another vehicle to the Tesla family stable. An all electric truck that can go up to 500 miles on a single charge. ICHEOKU says congratulations to Elan Musk and group.

ALABAMANS: DONT LET WASHINGTON DICTATE TO YOU, VOTE ROY MOORE FOR SENATE.

WHO IS AFRAID OF A SENATOR MOORE?

ICHEOKU says after nearly forty years in public office and about eight elections he participated in during so many decades, nothing was heard, not even a whiff. So for this allegation to come out now is nothing short of a hatchet job, orchestrated by the NEVER MOORE crowd and their Swamp establishment sponsors who do not want a straight shooting purist in the United States of American Senate. But drain the swamp is a task that must be done and Judge Roy Moore will help see the effort through. Vote Moore for the Senate. He will represent Alabama creditably well in the Washington DC. Show them pepper Judge and please DO NOT backdown or cave in to the latest attempt to blackmail you out of running. Trump did not backdown and so should you. Salute


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."


HACKS BY DONNA BRAZILE: A BOOK OF WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

ICHEOKU says the long knives are coming out and only a person with an AK47 will have an edge in the current political saga convoluting the Democratic Party, since their loss of the last presidential election. Ordinarily, this book of Hacks would have been a good window into the occultism that has become the Democratic Party, but coming from a woman who herself is an insider HACK in chief and who stole debate questions from Fake News CNN and handed them over to Queen Crooked I Love Money Too Much Hillary Clinton, to enable her gain an undue advantage over the silver haired frail grandpa Bernie Sanders, makes it a highly lethargic, loathsome read. But hey, since it takes a dog to know one of its kind, Donna Brazile's latest book Hacks might be what Americans need to read in order to understand What really Happened; despite a book of similar title by the crooked woman, Queen Crooked Hilary Clinton, which rehashed her own peculiar facts, lies and fantasies. ICHEOKU will definitely read Hacks, but will not pay a dime for it; hope you too.

THE INGRAHAM ANGLE: ICHEOKU WATCHED AGAIN.

THE INGRAHAM ANGLE: ICHEOKU WATCHED AGAIN

ICHEOKU says as promised, gave Laura Ingraham another chance at watching her new show The Ingraham Angle. Yes, it is with delight that ICHEOKU reports that Day 2 was much better and saw a lot of improvement from its debut. She is lit and her presentation was much livelier and grasping than yesterday's. ICHEOKU will be watching and observing and hopes that it will make ICHEOKU a firm believer. Kudos to Laura.

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.


DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE.

DAPHINE CARUANA GALIZIA MURDER: UNACCEPTABLE

ICHEOKU says the European Union must not allow this barbarism to go unsolved or unanswered. A journalist blogger blown up in a car bomb because of her writings and in an European Union member country is simply unacceptable. As a result the authorities in Brussels must demand a thorough investigation or better still lead the effort to unravel the monsters behind her assassination and bring justice to them. Daphine Caruana Galizia's murder must be solved and cannot be allowed to become another statistic of journalists killed to suppress freedom of speech. May her soul remain restless and haunt her killers until they are served justice. Adieu Daph.


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.


IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!

IPOB NNAMDI KANU: A BRITISH CITIZEN ABDUCTED BY THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!
ICHEOKU says he is a British citizen leading the effort to free the people of Biafra from the clutches of the feudalistic Fulani controlled Northern Nigeria. Now, he is missing following the raid of his country home by the Fulani Army of Northern Nigeria. ICHEOKU says President Muhammadu Buhari led Nigerian government sponsored abductions and murders is on the increase and you wonder what it will take the international community to call him to order.

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.

BIAFRA CANNOT BE WISHED AWAY BY THE FULANI/HAUSAS

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.

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

ENOUGH OF IRANIAN PROVOCATIVE FIERY RHETORIC, LET THE SHOWDOWN BEGIN.

Icheoku is sick-tired of hearing Teheran's incessant threats of an apocalyptic reprisal, raining thunder and brimstone on its enemies, should there be any attack of their nuclear facilities. It is about time therefore the world or even Israel, acting alone or in conjunction with the US and its willing European partners, called their bluff by attacking those known nuclear facilities scattered throughout the Islamic Republic. If the attack causes the heavens to fall, so be it. If the attack causes the entire Persian Gulf and/or the Middle East to all go up in flames, it shall not be the end of the world. If the attack conversely causes the world to implode on itself, then let civilization as we know it come to an end; but stop, the world must, of Iran's nuclear weapons pursuit. 
Of all the things Tehran could be doing with their scientific expertise and/or abundant human and material resources, the only thing attractive to them is the pursuit of the science of splitting of atoms; and you wonder why such prioritization if there is no urgent maniacal fervor and determination by the mullahs therein to fast-forward their end-time?  Icheoku says this with confidence that a lunatic miscalculation by Tehran to drop the bomb anywhere including Israel will elicit an earth-quaking response that will render the geographical entity known as Iran, a once existed country. It will be so devastating a destruction that Persia will become a nuclear winter-land and you wonder whether those in leadership authority in Tehran are well seized of this fact of consequence as they, by necessary implication, progressively pursue their own destruction with their nuclear weapons pursuit? What the heck one would ask, do those mullahs in Tehran think they are doing, continuously thumbing their nose on the entire world and trying to bluff their way to the acquisition of weapons of mass destruction. Icheoku is emphatic that the time to give Tehran concrete deadline is now and bombs should start raining down from the skies over Tehran and/or Natanz at the expiration of such firm deadline. 
World peace is imperative and is at stake here. Admitted it is a general goal of all mankind but sometimes some people need to be coerced, even if forcefully, to get that into their zealotry skull and if it means by using deadly force, so be it. Listen to Iranian spiritual leader mouth-off on a possible confrontation with the West:- "Our enemies, particularly the Zionist regime of Israel, America and its allies, should know that any kind of threat and attack or even thinking about any military action will be firmly responded to. The Revolutionary Guards and army and our nation will answer attacks with strong slaps and iron fists." What is Tehran defending or are they merely boastful of a threat they are incapable of exerting? Icheoku says the world should take them on the strength of their boast and acquiesce that they have developed the capacity to walk their talk; hence rise up in unison to say to Tehran, no to your nuclear weapons pursuit disguised as energy purposes. According to former United States Secretary of State, no one should wait to see mushroom cloud somewhere in its territory before proactively preventing such a scenario. Iranian threat is real and they are actively pursuing weapon-capacity to bring it about; so what else is the world waiting for before swooping down hard on them to stop them from wrecking the threatened havoc, especially on the State of Israel? 
The fact that Iran does not recognize or acknowledge the existence of the Israel is a cause for serious concern and in the event they acquire the means to bring to fruition such an avowed fanatical hateful desire to see the Jewish State wiped off the map, they would suicidally do it without blinking an eyelid. Icheoku says the world must therefore not wait and watch helplessly as Iran acquires the means of carrying out their stated objective of destroying an existing State of Israel. It would be better to peremptorily deny Iran such capacity now, through an attack of their known nuclear sites; than to watch in askance as they terrorize the world with their newly acquired weapon of mass destruction later. A possible detonation of such annihilating weapons of mass destruction by Iran over Israel is a high probability; admitted it is maddening to contemplate. Icheoku says that volatile region of the world, already pulsating with so many time-bomb situations, could use less of such an extra nuclear-Iran triggered code-red tension. 
It requires gutsy political decision to put a stop on this recalling decimal of repeat threats out of Tehran. It is about time the rubber met the road with stopping Iran's quest for nuclear weaponry. Let the back and forth tirade come to a head and with it a final solution to whatever constitutes Iranian nuclear threat to the world especially Israel and the Middle-East/Persian Gulf. 
Icheoku have watched with seething anger as both the Iranian Spiritual Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, continuously taunt the United States of America as well as Israel and daring them to attack Iran if they can. Whether this is a ploy to coerce some response from the West, Icheoku does not know; but suffice it to say that Iran with its current disposition towards the State of Israel should not and must not be allowed to go nuclear as they will drop the bomb somewhere as soon as they acquire same. They run their mouths as if they are not rational and nuclear bombs in the hands of such religion-driven zealots are not a bargain the world should make or be ready to accept or accommodate. Whatever be the cost in the short run, it would be much cheaper than its long term cost of having to perpetually cajole and plead with a nuclear armed Iran not to detonate such weapon over Israel or any other place. If it means oil price momentarily rising above $200 per barrel or the near annihilation of mankind through a resulting devastating third world war, so be it. That way the economies of the world still in doldrums, will receive a much needed steroid-shot in the arm to help it bounce back fast; as mankind takes time to rebuild its destroyed infrastructure and restock its depleted reserves. So a third world war, triggered by attempt to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapon capability, might be the silver bullet the world needs to fire-up the sauntering world economy.
Icheoku have weighed many possible scenario in the event of shooting hostilities between Iran and the West over its nuclear weapons match and came to the conclusion that although it might stretch resources, it might cost a lot in blood and treasure, especially with a possible Russia and China taking sides with Tehran, but eventually,  Iran will be defeated and shamed. Moreover Russia and China cannot afford to antagonize old friendships by directly fighting a shooting war against the West in defense of Iranian's nuclear weapon. Both countries are more interested in economic benefits for their countries and as happened with the Arab Spring, they would take a passive none confrontational position in the event their voicing of concern was not enough to deter an American led attack of nuclear-weapons bound Iran. In that circumstance, all that is foreseeable is a none-governmental indirect weapons and possibly mercenaries flow into Iran to help it prosecute its self-imposed war. Icheoku wonders how an Iran which could not convincingly defeat Iraq in their wars of the eighties could now make a mince meat of an American led assault on its nuclear facilities? The possibility of such a Persian victory is utopia at best; so with such a favored outcome but nasty scenario as a guide, Icheoku says the recalcitrant Iranian situation calls for a military confrontation - let the showdown to stop Iran's match to acquisition of nuclear weaponry start and start NOW!

When i read this type of piece from someone like you, i start to question the justification and credibility of education and meaning of human life. You and people with same destructive ideology led us to the unending war in IRAQ, where you people claim to have seem and even” inspect” so called Weapon of Mass Destruction. Again, you and your crony are confirming Nukes in IRAN against their claim of nuclear plant for energy generation. When you contextualize the spelling of the two countries (IRAQ - IRAN) you will find out that the Mullahs in US govt, sycophant analyst and myopic bloggers are on it again. If i may ask you; who suffered the effect of war in IRAQ? There is no justification for war and there is “no way to peace, peace is the way”. The over 1 trillion dollar spent on war in IRAQ and Afghanistan could have gone a long way to fix the economic crises in US and control fast ever growing state debt. What about the 4,471 American soldiers already killed in IRAQ? I would urge you to reconsider your analysis and champion a peaceful solution. Whatever you achieve through war, you must protect through war thereby creating a vicious circle of war.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards dare Israel to attack - AFP

Iran dares Israel to attack, because the retaliation would send the Jewish state to "the dustbin of history," a senior Revolutionary Guards commander said, according to the Fars news agency Monday.
"Our greatest wish is that they commit such a mistake," the chief of the Guards' aerospatial division, Amir-Ali Hadjizadeh, was quoted as saying.
"For some time there has been a hidden energy we hope to expend to consign the enemies of Islam forever to the dustbin of history," he said.
"Our ballistic (missile) capacity never ceases to grow," he added.
The comments were one of the most belligerent reactions yet by an Iranian official to speculation that Israel was considering launching air strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.
The threat -- raised recently in Israeli media reports, and by Israeli President Shimon Peres -- comes amid rising international tensions over Iran's nuclear programme.
A November 8 report by the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said intelligence strongly suggested Iran was researching nuclear weapons.
Iran has denied its nuclear programme has any military dimension.
Government officials have said they are willing to cooperate with the IAEA, while Iranian military officers have talked up their country's ability to counter-attack if strikes are launched.

'Time has come' to act on Iran, Israel says
AFP – Sun, Nov 20, 2011

The "time has come" to deal with Iran, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Sunday, refusing to rule out military action to curb the Islamic republic's nuclear ambitions.
Barak, speaking on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS program, indicated that Israel's patience was wearing thin -- and provided an ominous response when asked about the growing speculation of an Israeli military strike.
"I don't think that that is a subject for public discussion," he said. "But I can tell you that the IAEA report has a sobering impact on many in the world, leaders as well as the publics, and people understand that the time has come."
The International Atomic Energy Agency published a report on November 8 saying there was "credible" information that Iran was carrying out "activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device."
On Friday the IAEA's board passed a resolution condemning Iran's nuclear activities, but stopped short of reporting Tehran to the United Nations and issuing no deadline for compliance.
"People understand now that Iran is determined to reach nuclear weapons," said Barak. There is "no other possible or conceivable explanation for what they have been actually doing. And that should be stopped."
The IAEA report -- based on "broadly, credible" intelligence, its own information and some input from Iran itself -- said that Iran had examined how to fit out a Shahab 3 missile, with a range capable of reaching Israel, with a nuclear warhead.
Tehran rejected the report "baseless," denies it is seeking nuclear weapons and maintains its nuclear activities are for civilian energy purposes.
Washington, Paris and London however jumped on the report as justification to increase pressure on Iran, already under four rounds of Security Council sanctions and additional US and European Union restrictions.
