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

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.

RAPE DECRIMINALIZED IN REPUBLICAN AMERICA?

Sometimes Icheoku wonders why we are wasting a lot of time, energy and resources trying to bring civilization to the Taliban and other mullahs in other parts of the world when we could be spending such trying to wean our own American Taliban, many of whom enjoy membership of the Republican Party, of their own antiquated ideological moonshine-driven dogmas and believes? Call it whatever you like, but some of these men belong to the stone-age and share so much similitude with the orthodoxy of the ultra-conservative Mullahs of Afghanistan and needs to be re-orientated and revamped psychologically. Hear some of these Republicans mouthing off on some national issues particularly women-victims of rape going through yet another trauma of carrying to full gestation resulting fetuses and giving birth to rape babies:- 'Rape babies are okay?' 'Getting educated is snobbish?' "There is consensual rape' and now the mother of all anti-women's right to their body hogwash, - "there are legitimate rapes?"

If Icheoku had just landed from Mars or woken up from a coma, we would think that it was not in America that a serving Congressman and now Senator wanna-be made such a blatant statement, thus decriminalizing rape by necessary implication. Icheoku queries, if it is "legitimate" then it is no longer rape and by extension not illegal or criminal. Rape is a crime because the sexual assault is non consensual and a violation of the victims body. But Republican Congressman Todd Akin seems to disagree as he believes that some rapes are legitimate? The Republican member of Congress who sits on the House Science Committee and presently a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri, said he does not support abortion for rape victims because "if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." And conversely where unable to do so, she should just have the rape baby, period. Icheoku asks this congressman to please expatiate and take us a step further by explaining to the millions of women rape-victims all over the world particularly in America which type of rape is legitimate? This way, they might truly begin to heal and get over their traumatic nightmare of being violated without their consent. Put in another way, it appears that Republican Congressman Todd Atkin has just removed the crime in the crime of rape, or at least some rapes - his so called "legitimate" rape!

This is atypical of America the beautiful with still many ugly underbelly that a Congressman should entertain such thoughts as rape being legitimate and you wonder if he has a woman for a wife or daughters and what would be his position were they unfortunately to fall victims of rape. This is the problem with these Republicans with their conservative viewpoints as they make no exception to certain circumstances where legislation could be tailored to accommodate certain situational peculiarities. Even the most heinous crime of homicide provides for certain circumstances where the taking of live of another does not amount to murder and also fully exonerates such a killer. But these Republicans would not make exception to their anti-abortion fanatical position and want a raped woman to give birth to a rape baby, whether or not the rapist baby-daddy is an ax-murderer, an arsonist, a bank robber, a child molester or even strangely unknown? It is unfathomable and one wonders what these men's wives tell them at the privacy of their homes or that it is okay to rape women and force them to give birth to such a permanent reminder of the ordeal they went through in the hands of a total stranger as is most often the case.
