"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 Colin Powell has yet to explain to black Americans and all other American people who bought into his endorsement of Barack Obama, how their vote for him as he recommended has translated into any beneficial outcome. Yes, many Americans respect the retired general and yes, many possibly were persuaded by his endorsement of Obama to vote for Obama. But eight years after, the same Colin Powell has not enumerated the benefits of that his endorsement to the people who were persuaded to so vote, yet here he is again asking Americans to vote for Ms Nasty Crooked Hillary Clinton. Icheoku says exactly what is wrong with Washington as you ask yourself if Ms Nasty Crooked Hillary Clinton was all that Colin Powell described her to be in his leaked emails, why then suffer whatever reputation he has left, recommending the same heavily flawed and greedy person for the office of the president of the United States of America? Icheoku says simply put, Washington entrenched interests are just ganging up against the rest of us, American people. 

Icheoku says was it possible that General Powell, a Republican, did what he did for Obama against both Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney simply because he has hidden racial bias against White people?  Was he simply too anxious to see a black man in the White House that he sidestepped party loyalty on the two occasions to endorse a Democrat instead of his Republican Party's candidates? But his then endorsement considered, what exactly has the black community both here in America, the Caribbean and motherland Africa benefited for having a black President Obama in the White House? What was it that Colin Powell bequeathed black people by asking them to elect a black President to occupy the White House? Now the same Colin Powell is thrusting himself in the center of this 2016 election, possibly as the man who knows what is in the best interest of black people by saying that Trump cannot win black votes and simultaneously endorsing Hillary Clinton. Icheoku says what about even the black president who won black votes with the help of Colin Powell? How did his presidency benefit black people specifically? Icheoku says until Colin Powell tells the world of black people what these past benefits for voting a black president were, no black person will listen to him; not this time around concerning who they should vote in this election 2016. Possibly he is angry at some unfinished business with some people and is now popping up to say whatever will position him, in the event the establishment entrenched forces succeed. 

Anyway, Icheoku is not surprised that Colin Powell endorsed another Democratic Party candidate instead of his supposedly party's candidate. It is his pattern of behavior as John McCain and Mitt Romney similarly found out; which rightly earned him and some other wayward Republicans the moniker RINO - republican in name only. That he attacked Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump as being a 'national disgrace' is not surprising either. All the entrenched interests of both parties are wary and anxious of what a President Donald Trump will do to their crookedness and corruption in Washington. So it is understandable that they will not go without a fight and will also do whatever is possible to try to stop him. Icheoku says Donald Trump should even feel greatly honored that even Colin Powell is afraid of his presidency; and if he could ditch a fellow military man Republican John McCain, who is Donald Trump? Mitt Romney suffered similar snub from Colin Powell and you wonder what actually makes Colin Powell a republican. Possibly, he is a republican who does not see anything good in any Republican candidate since Bush Jr, so it is really no big deal that he yet again threw another Republican Party candidate Donald Trump. under the bus. Were it in an enforced association, Colin Powell should by now have been suspended or fired from the Republican Party because there is nothing republican in him, not at all. 

What should surprise most watchers and observers alike is his endorse of Ms Nasty Crooked Hillary Clinton, after all the damaging and disparaging things he said about her character flaws in his leaked emails. A woman he described in the most unflattering language and words ever and now going back to his vomit to endorse her? This is a woman Colin Powell talked so badly about in her back and you wonder any man or person for that matter, who will so speak ill of another person in the privacy of his space and/or email is anything but a mean and conniving girlie-man, irrespective of his military background. It is called gossip and real men do not gossip; a matter made worse because he called her his friend. Icheoku says why pretend to like someone when you don't telly do; only to go at her back and drive the Brutus dagger right into her. What Colin Powell said against Hillary Clinton falls into the ambit of back-stabbing gossip, talking about her at her back while publicly pretending that he admires her. This is a man who said Hillary Clinton is too old and sick and that his friend told him she could not climb a stage at an event; an information which was confidentially shared with him by a New Hampshire congressman and which he could not keep as confided. Icheoku says Colin Powell was engaging in petty gossips which is common among women; men don't gossip and real men keep confidences.  

Speaking about Colin Powell's sudden surge of blackness, saying that "Trump does not care about us black people", Icheoku queries how much did Colin Powell care about black people when he was in government? When he served GW Bush administration as both Secretary of State and National Security Adviser, what exactly did he do for the "us" black people that he was crowned the King of black people in politics? At what point in his sunset years did he realize that black people of America needs a champion and that he is "The One", the designated champion? When did his epiphany take place and suddenly there is now in his lexicon the "us" and the "them" narrative which he never expressed when he was serving in the Bush administration. The irony of his attack on Donald Trump is that Donald Trump never a thing did to black people compared to the Crooked One who called black Americans "Super Predators" but Colin Powell chose to remain deaf or silent to that reprehensible tagging. That Haiti is in ruins and that Colin Powell never a thing said is equally telling about his championship of black people's causes and his roots is in the Caribbean.

His leaked emails seems to show that Colin Powell lashed out at people because of personal axes he had to grind with them rather than the holistic assessment of current events in the country which he would rather we believe was his motive. Imagine he lamented that he missed a speaking gig because Crooked Hillary Clinton struck first and raided the University's coffers without leaving anything for him to collect afterwards. In his own words, Colin Powell said, "Everything Hillary Rodham Clinton touches she kind of screws up with hubris. I told you about the gig I lost at a University because she so overcharged them they came under heat and couldn't pay any fees for a while. I should send her a bill. Hillary Rodham Clinton comes across as sleazy. She has unbridled ambition. She is greedy. She is not transformational. I would rather not vote for her." Yet, Colin Powell swallowed all his vomit to now want to vote for Hillary Clinton and you wonder where is his honor, if any is still left in him? Query, had Hillary Clinton not completely gouged the university and left some money for Colin Powell to collect later, would Colin Powell have made such a disparaging statement about her? Does it now mean that Colin Powell does not mind Hillary Clinton touching and screwing up America since everything she touches she screws up? Icheoku disagrees too that only poor white folks are Donald Trump's supporters as it transcends every community in America who are tired of the statues-quo and honestly desires change. Icheoku is neither white nor poor and is an avid supporter of Donald Trump, so likewise millions of other fantastic members of Team MAGA, deplorable or not, who are desirous of problem solving and properly redirecting and repositioning America. 

How honorable is actually a man who will be discussing silly nothingness about a would have been chance meeting with Hillary Clinton at a donor's home but dodged her to avoid saying hello; or gossiping about Bill Clinton "dicking" some chics in their Chappaqua family home when Hillary is away? Is it possible that Colin Powell is jealous of the Clintons and is suffering a dog in the manger complex around them? Just hear him speaking ill about Hillary Clinton: "After speaking at the UN and doing that crummy press conference she flew to San Francisco to go to a paid gig for Ebay and then to Marc' house for a money dinner for the Clinton Foundation. I was in the same Marc's house but dodged her to avoid saying hello. She will turn 70 in her first year in office." Icheoku says why all these needless little gossipy details from a man supposedly decent and honorable. Must Colin Powell repeat that it was a fund raising dinner that took place at Marc's house; except that he did not tell Americans what himself was doing at Marc's house, may be getting a gig too that was paid for? Look at him boasting about endorsing Obama in 2008 and 2012 as if his endorsement won it for Obama? In his words, "Gotta pick the time and place for (Hillary Clinton's endorsement) the most effect strike. It is what I did in 2008 and 2012. Hillary has not been covering herself with glory. For good reason she comes across as sleazy." Colin Powell calling someone he allegedly respects sleazy is very unflattering indeed. He also called Hillary Clinton's minders "minions"; gloated that "she is being crucified" too. So October 25th, two weeks to the election, is now the fabled time? 

Icheoku says his leaked emails shows a self absorbed man who engages in self praise - being totally different from Hilary Clinton and using such words as "the differences are profound. She and her staff refused to cooperate. She had a State department guy taking care of the system and she was also paying him for it and he was an old campaign worker. Unbelievable." Continuing, Colin Powell said, "Surprise, surprise. I sat next to Stephen Harper a couple of time and had discussion. Bohemia Grove attendees dissed Trump and many will not vote for him." Icheoku says would any Bohemia Grove member ever want Colin Powell to sit near him or discuss any confidential thing with him again knowing that he is going to blab about it in an email with some other friend? Icheoku says how else can anyone describe a man who cannot keep shared confidences other than a kiss and tell gossipy person. Yet he just endorsed Hillary Clinton and you wonder how weighty this endorsement is and whether Hillary and Bill Clinton would accord it any importance at all. Not transformational? Greedy? Sleazy? Unbridled ambition? Yet, he will now vote for all these bad stuff? Interesting; it is either Colin Powell's judgment is as bad as Crooked Hillary Clinton's or he lacks credibility.

Icheoku says Colin Powell will be forced to eat his words again when on November 8, a greater percentage of black people will break for Donald Trump and together with other mentally freed Americans of all shades vote to elect Donald Trump president of the United States of America, his endorsement of the Crooked One not withstanding. Donald Trump  has said enough to show that he cares and will do something about the situation of inner city black people to sway a lot of folks. Icheoku says after watching Colin Powell, one begins to wonder who between him and Donald Trump is actually the racist here? A divider in chief Colin Powell saying "There is nothing Donald Trump can say that will sway black voters, so he might as well say it to white people." As far as Colin Powell is concerned it is about "we' and them" America; yet he served as Secretary of State of America as well as her National Security Adviser? Simply put, some things don't change and will never change including prejudices being exhibited by a man who has been favored to serve America in various capacities. But for his lap dog position to the Bush family, trying to side with a family still feeling sour about their disgraced JEB, Icheoku could not fathom any other explanation for Colin Powell's endorsing Hillary Clinton after all he said about her and then taking an issue with Donald Trump who did not do him any wrong. At least Donald Trump is sincere and speaks him mind and is not faking his professed love for black people, including his pledge to reposition their inner city situation in America. Icheoku says Colin Powell lost Icheoku with this endorsement as it defeats every logic and common sense.
