JERUSALEM IS ISRAEL'S ETERNAL CAPITAL - PDJT
ICHEOKU says a wisdom of Solomon come to judgment; it is about time the child is given to the rightful mother. Salute to the courage of President Donald John Trump.

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.





"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


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.

BAMIDELE ATURU, LIFE IS A JOURNEY NOT A DESTINATION?


Icheoku says fortunately for him he was pulled off the line when he was on top of his game, the ovation loudest and was a well known happened on the Nigerian stage. From birth when we all enter the world to begin this journey called life, until we make our exit through death, everything in between is but rest stops and detours en-route our final valediction. Icheoku maintains that the entire human race, like a hamster on a wheel, is on a race to no where. They are all on a journey with no apparent destination and are intermittently, serially, pulled out from the line as the maker chooses. The number of Bamidele Aturu Esquire has come up in the home-coming roster and his journey has now petered to a stop. Icheoku says RIP Bam.

Like few other Nigerians with conscience who came before him, Bamidele came, Bamidele saw, but regrettably Bamidele did not conquer the many societal ills and decadence pervading Nigeria before he took his final bow; admitted he kept fighting till the very end. Gani Fawehinmi preceded him; likewise Tai Solarin; then there was Beko Ransome Kuti's effort which also failed; Chima Ubani gave it his all but also did not succeed; ditto Ebami Eda Fela Anikulapo Kuti just to mention the prominent VERY FEW. Now Bamidele Aturu has also joined the list of this select few Nigerians who desperately wanted and tirelessly worked to affect change in a polity that considered their breed very threatening and thus frustrated them. Icheoku says all these people shared a common passion - they frowned at the decay that is the Nigerian society and set out to do something about it. 

But unfortunately, it is usually very difficult to lit a candle in a dark, dank and daft society where more than 99.9% of the populace prefer to maintain the status-quo and obstinately refused to be mobilized to help change the society for the better. Icheoku says these humanists did not fail for lack of trying or for not pushing hard enough. No, they failed because a septic society in which they unfortunately found themselves was not ready or willing to change. Instead, they turned against them, branded them radicals and socialists and communists who must be stopped at all cost and thus became very hostile and full-throttled in their resistant to their noble effort. Icheoku says this apathy on the part of greater Nigerians is the primary reason why these few well intention-ed Nigerians, who shouted themselves hoarse for a new order but were ignored, often died unfulfilled, downcast and broken-hearted. This is now the lot of Bamidele Aturu as he joins his fellow past travelers, who traversed through the Nigeria unforgiving terrain, a terrain populated by impervious to change human-beings.

Bamidele Aturu allegedly died from 'fatigue and stress' related health complications? Icheoku have always wondered how so many Nigerians survive the pressure-cooker of an environment that is the Nigerian society? Admitted that some locals might attribute his death to "remote controlled" African magic, but Icheoku is certain that acute 'fatigue and stress' could trigger such convulsive pressure on the human physiology that the heart or even the brain is forced to shut down due to some catastrophic trauma resulting in instant death. A brain aneurysm or arterial blood clot which cuts off blood supply to vital organs, resulting in massive stroke, could also be the culprit in his death? Ebola virus disease also sometimes manifests in similar instant shut down of vital organs resulting in instant death and possibly could also have been implicated in his death? However, Icheoku must move on from all these unhelpful speculations and defer to pathologists' autopsy to uncover the actual and conclusive cause of Bam's death. 

Icheoku says what is done is done and instead of hopelessly moaning Bam's loss, let those still walking the grounds of Nigerian find a way of prolonging their own lives through concerted regular medical check-ups and improved lifestyle; and then in memory of the dead, try to continue the good work he did while he lived. Icheoku says the best way to immortalize Bamidele Aturu is to carry on with the fight and struggle for a just and better society which he lived for and courageously fought for in his quest to enthrone a better, improved and "re-branded" Nigerian society, where the rule of law reigns supreme. By doing this, Bam would not have died in vain and this will go a long way in showing that he died fighting a worthy cause worthy of emulation.

However Icheoku disagrees and rejects Femi Falana's assertion that 'Bamidele Aturu's death is unbelievable' because every mortal was born to die and Bam is a mortal and therefore this needless doubt was mere pandering. Life is but an indeterminate journey, wherein individuals are accordingly plucked out as the maker deems fit and whenever He chooses. Although death at a relatively young age may be 'shocking' to those who do not believe in Rapture's teaching of suddenness of end of life, but for all those others who truly understand that there is no stipulation as to longevity, whenever it happens, it is always acceptable without question as a Divine's will. In other words, waxing philosophically, Icheoku says that there is nothing like "untimely death" or "sudden death" or "death come too early" as with any journey, it ends when it ends, period. This affirms the teachings of Master Jesus when he admonished mourners not to mourn like unbelievers and that they should leave the dead to bury themselves. Translation, let the dead move on and now allowed to rest while the living continues with their own journey, carrying their cross of staying alive until they reach their own end too. 

Icheoku says at least Bam lived and in the process left some imprints on the estate called Nigeria which he called home. Like many real activists, he was born an activist, he was a natural, a streak which manifested very early in his life. Bamidele's first noticeable thunder of activism was way back during his NYSC passing out parade when he refused to shake the hand of a military governor because he represented a military institution that is undemocratic and anti-people. Also Bam's ideas were revolutionary and he had the courage to push them regardless of the pains he suffered or the inconvenience they caused him. Unlike some later day mushroom activists, Bam was not a publicity seeking pretender to human rights activism in Nigeria. No, he was the real deal activist; he was as genuine as it gets and the real-estate of Nigeria attests to that. Whenever there was a noticeable flagrant abuse, he shouted, he litigated, he mobilized and he even marched on the streets in protest, refusing to be intimidated by the tear gases and cudgels of the oppressors of the Nigerian state. He did not do it because it was easy or convenient, he did it because it was the right thing to do and he did it without wavering; neither did he scurry away with tail tucked in between his legs when the heat became unbearably too hot and he did it until the end. His struggle against June 12th annulment and mobilization for restoration of democracy in Nigeria was of general knowledge. 

Like William Shakespeare in Julius Caesar said through Mark Anthony of Brutus, here was was a man, Icheoku says Bamidele Aturu was a human right activist extraordinaire. He was fashioned in the mold of Gani Fawehimni, admitted he was no Gani Fawehimni whose true likeness there is no fellow in the firmament of Nigeria. Bam also added value to law practice and the legal profession in Nigeria with some very insightful legal thoughts which were published in various Law reports as well as Newspapers; wherein he espoused and expressed valid opinions on how certain things could be done and made better, except that he preached to a deaf society which refused to listen. Icheoku says his foremost effort to affect a change in lawyers' garb in Nigeria, stopping lawyers from adorning wig and gown in a very hot climate, was frustrated by the same lawyers he was trying to help, many of who steadfastly believe that without the hood there is no monk; and that the wig and gown makes them different or enable them stand out from the commoners and ordinary Nigerian general populace. 

Icheoku laments that the dress-code which is still fashionable among lawyers in Nigeria has since been discarded in many civilized societies that has freed themselves of this British colonial vestige. A bequeath which makes lawyers' appearance rather 'too solemn and overtly drably encumbered' than advocates of the law, freely prying their trade unfettered by weighty dark gowns and scratching breached horse-hair wigs? The only good news is that such revolutionary idea often takes several eons after their thinker is gone to come to a general acceptance - the reason why some people are said to have been born ahead of their time. Icheoku is hopeful that like many other great ideas in life whose conception were initially resisted, the now departed Bamidele Aturu's questioned desirability of lawyers wearing wig and gown in such a hot climate as Nigeria, will one day come to a head with Nigerian lawyers asking themselves what have they been smoking all these years, garbed like melancholic undertakers? A purveyor of beautiful idea often die without experiencing the beauty of what he propagated come to fruition and Bamidele Aturu will not be an exception. So with Bam now gone, can the rest of us all who are still walking the walk learn to live our lives as if we will someday also die and pray it will be peaceful and less painful. Rest in Peace BAM and may your ideas live long and thrive, Adieu! 7/27/14
