"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


“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


"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)


Icheoku says regrettably his Vice President Osibanjo, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, is fidgeting around, while the president is wrecking havoc to Nigeria's hard fought democracy. Icheoku says by flagrantly disobeying court's orders, the president is doing grave damage to the very foundation on which every democracy is based. Osibanjo, Icheoku says defend your honor as a servant of the law and tell your boss that he has no choice in the matter of releasing detainees who have been granted bail.


Icheoku says the more they hold him, the bigger, the better and the larger he becomes; and more resolved on his quest for an independent homeland of Biafra. A thinking government of Nigeria would let him go and just monitor his activities if they have the time. Icheoku calls on President Muhammadu Buhari and his advisers to let Nnamdi Kanu go, moreso now that two courts of competent jurisdictions have granted him bail, one unconditionally.

Icheoku says the great debate of our time flustered and floundered, but never took flight, talkless of soaring to the stratosphere as advertised. It was okay at best but did not live up to other more memorable debates of the past with their notable zingers and one liners which still reverberates till today. There was no one liner or zinger, attributable to either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, which anyone would remember few years from now.  The nearest semblance to that was 'it takes one tweet to get under Trump's skin', which  Donald Trump rightly pointed out is so cliched now that it has since lost its weight in gold. Overall it was ordinary and one very short step short of mediocre, rated against other notable presidential debates of yore. There was no electricity nor fiery oratories that would find itself into any political historian's writings down the road. 

Icheoku says Donald Trump fumbled the ball when he decided to be so polite to Crooked Hillary; patronizingly asking her if it is okay to call her Senator Hillary Clinton. A more charging Trump would have rephrased the compliment by saying, hopefully, you will help convince me to drop the moniker Crooked Hillary by the end of this debate. Provided of course you convincingly tell American people why the name is not appropriate based on your known past records and continuing activities of connivances and contrivances as well as hiding stuff and deleting many things. My promise to you is that I will drop and cease to use the moniker if you do the following:- 

1. Explain to American public why you deleted those 33,000 emails and took further steps to prevent their being never raced by the FBI by bleach-washing them. 
2. Why you hid and refused to allow American people see those Wall Street beautiful speeches that you were paid over $600,000 to deliver. 
3. Why your staff took hammer to those thirteen communication gadgets which you used to engage your private servers hidden in your basement, which you lied and said was only one. 
4. Why you diverted your official communication to private servers hidden in your basement. 
5. Why you told the Benghazi lies that it was a video and not terrorists act that caused the mayhem that claimed four American lives including our Ambassador Stevens. 
6. Why the activities of the Clinton Foundation is shrouded in secrecy and why as Secretary of State you engaged in pay for play antics to the benefit of the foundation. Did you ever consider resigning and distancing yourself from the foundation while secretary or did you not see the conflict of interest. 
7. When you told the FBI that you had a memory lapse regarding security briefings, did you tell the whole truth? 
8. Is there any possibility that American people will ever get the opportunity to see you undelete those deleted 33,000 emails so that they could actually understand what it is you were trying to hide by taking those actions you took regarding them. 
9. And lastly, when you said that you did not understand the markings "C" on correspondences, did you tell the truth? Once you answer these questions to enable American people understand them, I pledge on my honor to never again call you Crooked Hillary Clinton or use that moniker Crooked Hillary Clinton in any other way. 

But none of these questions were thrust upon Crooked Hillary Clinton, rather, a trusting Donald Trump started with word of endearment and found himself bound and could not respond when the ever snaky Crooked Hillary Clinton unloaded on him - lying about his inheritance from his father, from a previous $2 million figure claim to now hyper-inflated $40 million; mentioning his disparagement of women; his shafting of his staffers and contractors etc. Icheoku says imagine a candidate who lives in the proverbial glass house throwing stones at Donald Trump and she was not stopped. She had the guts to question what Trump was hiding by not releasing his tax returns but forgot that she hid her Wall Street speeches, deleted and bleach washed 33,000 emails as well as hid her medical condition as well as records thereof. That she refused being taken to the hospital for fear that her condition would be made known to the American people saw her being transported to her daughter Chelsea's apartment in total disregard of known practice of rushing a medical emergency invalid to the ER. 

Hillary Clinton grilled Trump on his making money from possible questionable sources, while forgetting that she and her family has not told American people what product they are manufacturing or selling or what app they wrote from which they amassed a fortune which is in excess of $300 million dollars. How is it possible that a couple who left the White House broke few years ago are now this wealthy? Did they win the lottery or are they being paid delayed bribes and gratuities for favors done while in government? 

When Clinton said in celebration of her orchestrated murder of Muommar Gaddafi that "we came, we saw and he died," followed by a guffaw, did she think that killing a head of state of another country and living that country desolate of leadership and security was a laughing matter? Why treat the killing and death of a human being with such cavalier attitude? When Crooked Hillary Clinton said that voting for the Iraq war was a mistake, did she actually want the families of the war dead and mortally wounded to believe her that their loved ones perished due to a mistake? If the Iraq war was a mistake, was Libya and Gaddafi a mistake too; otherwise why the rush to take out a man who had already repented; who surrendered his nuclear weaponry program; paid compensation for the Lockerbie disaster; handed over accused masterminds who were tried and convicted? Her judgment and rash decisions is simply not good for America and should never be allowed to be the controlling authority in America's decision making process.

Icheoku says why Trump did not call Clinton out on her Super Predators comment and ask her to explain how she could be this racist and now pretend to be a champion for black people? Or her most recent branding of millions of Americans 'Irredeemable Deplorables' and still intend to be their president; and whether her 'Stronger Together' actually envisages or made provision for accommodation and inclusion of these American deplorables? Her claim to be a champion for women, when did it actually begin? Was it after those women who were being paid less than men in her foundation were outed or when? Those women she is a champion of and for, do they include the likes of Monica Lewinsky, Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones and all those other women victims of Bill's philandering? If not, why not; and if yes, why did she not stand up and be their champion when it mattered most? Lastly, does the name Webster Hubbell ring a bell and whether she can confirm all the rumors associated with that name and her? 

Speaking about her foreign policy experience, how well was her Russia reset button working when Crimea was taken over? Who does she hold responsible for the mess that is present day Middle East including Syria, Libya, Iraq as well as the general Arab Spring experience? Does she still believe that Nigeria's Boko Haram is a "mere Northern Muslim youths protesting North's marginalization by a christian Southern president?' How does she plan to reconcile the security concerns of the State of Israel with the nuclear-arming of Iran deal that saw $1.7 being paid to Tehran which she helped midwife? Why does she want to now rush to visit North Carolina following the riot there but never cared much about visiting Milwaukee, following their own riot nor Baton Rougue following their flood or even honoring Mexican President Nieto Pena's invitation to talk about immigration concerns? 

Icheoku says there were so many spearing moments and opportunities in which Donald Trump would have had the kill shot but which he allowed to go to waste. May be  a function of it being his first ever one on one national political debate, being the outsider he is. Donald Trump's newness to politics did not equip him with bifurcated political grandstanding manner of speaking which the entrenched Hillary does not lack. This forestalled his rebutting adequately those lies piled on him by Crooked Hillary Clinton, who was busy questioning a private citizen about a comment he made on radio when his opinion has no weight whatsoever about the actions of the government. A matter compounded by an apparently partisan party of interest moderator, who was busily doing the hatchet job for Crooked Hillary, putting Trump on the spot but sparing Hillary. A moderator busily questioning a birther issue that was since foreclosed while maintaining silence on Hillary Clinton's own racist Super Predator comment. 

Anyway, Newt Gingrich was right that Donald Trump passed the test of not being scary, untrustworthy or unfit for the American presidency. He did no harm nor caused any damage to his rising poll numbers and remains a great contender with very few steps away from clinching the presidency. Newt Gingrich also declared Hillary Clinton a failure for not destroying Trump, her primary task; nor promised anything new to the American people after her very steeped longevity in politics. Simply put, Crooked Hilalry Clinton belong in the past and America wants to move forward with change candidate Donald Trump. Borrowing Donald Trump's words, if Crooked Hilalry Clinton did not or could not do all that she is now promising all these past 30 years of being in politics, how could she do it just now. In the final analysis, Donald Trump is right that Crooked Hillary Clinton is "all talk no action;" and will not do anything differently than the past eight years, if not worse. The only reason she appeared to have done well in the debate was because she looked nice and well recovered from her fabled moonwalk at 9/11 memorial in New York. She also holed herself in and robotically memorized her lines well too. But nothing will get done under her presidency should the tragedy of her election happen. Put point-blankly, Crooked Hillary Clinton  has nothing on Make American Great Again. Salute.
