"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.


"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.



ICHEOKU says August 26 is the day history will be made as two of the world's most interesting athletes square off in the ring. 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


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.


"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.


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.

"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)


“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.

Icheoku says yet another glaring evidence of a failed lackluster foreign policy of President Barack Hussein Obama, whose abysmal foreign policy record will now include the president of the United States of America under whose presidency, America lost a friendly ally of over 70 years, Philippines. Icheoku says many ardent observers of the South Asian corridor saw this coming long ago following the election of Rodrigo Duterte, who has fired several shots over the bow to draw America's attention to both himself and his country but ti\o no avail. He was completely ignored and cry for attention side-swept by a tired White House just bidding its remaining time in office. 

President Rodrigo Duterte few weeks ago, first called Obama the son of a whore; but it was largely waved off as ranting and a boisterous remark of a newly elected president who is still trying to figure out stuff. Many seasoned diplomats agree that a government of America on top of its game would have immediately reached out to Mr Rodrigo to seek out what exactly is his beef with America and/or Obama that elicited such untoward outburst from a supposedly friendly country and an ally; and then try to mollify him by addressing whatever concerns he has against either Obama or the United States of America. But instead, he was avoided, ignored and branded; and now he has grown more audacious and impetuous. Just last week before embarking on his first foreign trip to China, the president once again told off Obama, saying he should go to hell. Now, he ratcheted anger against Obama and America up a big notch by formally announcing the separation of his country from the clutches of the United States of America. According to the Philippines president, he has found a new brother in China and with her, comes a new re-alliance of forces. In his own very words, President Rodrigo Duterte said "Your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States of America - both in military, but also economics. I will be dependent on you. China has been a friend of the Philippines and the roots of our bond are very deep and not easily severed. Even as we arrive in Beijing, close to winter, this is a spring time of our relationship."

Icheoku says what a slap on the face of President Barack Obama, a matter made worse because his government especially the State Department did not see it coming. A government of Barack Obama which has nothing good to narrate about his foreign policy achievement with every part of the world in one disaster or the other and now former allies are abandoning ship and seeking new alliances. This is despite the much touted Vice President Joe Biden's foreign policy expertise, a guru of foreign policy, sort of. Icheoku says that America's relationship with the Philippines of over 70 years would so suddenly and so cavalierly go up in smoke shows the extent of Obama's failed foreign policy. It also shows that something very foundational and so fundamental was indeed the matter; but unfortunately, the State Department was completely taken unawares and are now left chasing the ghost of what formerly was. The State Department is trying to belatedly figure out what exactly happened and why they were completely taken unawares with President Duterte coup, which uprooted America and replaced her with China, their arch rival over the South China Sea, as their newly ordained big brother. 

It is also instructive that China which recently denied a staircase for Air-Force One during President Obama's visit to China which forced a backdoor alight of President Barack Obama from the plane, now treated President Duterte to a stately reception with all associated fanfare and paraphernalia. What an unflattering period it is has been for Obama's presidency which ends in less that three short months thence. Indeed it was a big slap on the face of President Obama that under his watch, a Filipino president divorced America. This is in addition of the insult of being called "a son of a whore; and also being told off to "go to hell"; and you wonder what exactly is the beef between Duterte and Obama as it looks in every inch personal. The State Department responded that they are going to seek some explanation and then study the ramifications of President Duterte's statement. According to the State Department, "We are going to be seeking an explanation of exactly what the president meant when he talked about separation from us. It is not clear to us exactly what that means and all its ramifications. It isn't just the United States that is baffled by this rhetoric. We have heard from many of our friends and partners in the region who are likewise confused about where this is going. We remain rock solid in our commitment in the mutual defense treaty we have with the Philippines. That hasn't changed; the alliance would grow and develop and deepen." 

Icheoku says in as much as these save face sound bites sounds well intended, but the fact of the matter remains that Philippines has moved on without America. It takes two to tango and certain irrecoverable differences has forced the present situation on America being divorced by a previously friendly ally and country, the Philippines. The United States of America, regardless of how they feel, cannot maintain an alliance where the other partner thereto is no longer willing to remain in it. It is called a divorce. It is still legal and any party to any partnership including international relationship agreements between governments, having denounced it, is deemed to have ended it. Therefore whatever partnership or treaty that previously existed is now as good as dead; and barring a military coup to remove President Duterte for a more friendly government to step in and restore it, nothing else survived the Duterte coup against America. Icheoku says it is even very much doubtful whether Philippines needs or would even agree to provide any additional explanation to the action of her president. Icheoku says it is not just only the neighbors of Philippines that is baffled and confused, the whole world is, concerning the drifting off of America. This is exactly the type of things which Make America Great Again movement speaks to; the desire to restore America's former glory that makes it the most sort after suitor in the world. Icheoku says a Donald John Trump's presidency would not have let this happen. First it would try to nip it in the bud, failing which, it would raise hell to dim its prospect; but hey, it is the knee jerk President Barack Obama's final farewell to America. What a shame.
