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.

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.

ROMANIA SURRENDERS TO CORRUPTION, AS A FAULTY SYSTEM WINS.

Icheoku says in 1989 Romanian people rose up against their leader Nicholae Ceausescu and killed him alongside his wife Elena Ceausescu for corruption among a litany of other crimes of his despotism. Twenty eight long years later, the government in Bucharest have legitimized corruption and you wonder what lesson did they learn from the fate which befell Ceausescu. Query, should the Ceausescus have been killed for corruption if the result is for his subsequent successors in office to turn around and become as corrupt as he was, if not more. 

To add insult to injury, the corrupt Romanian politicians have now legalized corruption and said it is okay to demand and accept or take bribes, provided you do it in parchments or tranches but not in one fell swoop. According to their warped narrative, accepting any amount in corrupt proceeds must not exceed $40,000 at once; thus technically making it okay to accept $1 million provided it is spread out in 250 installments. ICHEOKU says it defies every rhyme and reason that any country would adopt corruption as an official  policy of state, regardless of how permeated corruption may have become in the Romanian society. At least the government would have continued with its lip service approach to fighting corruption, but to go out of its way to so brazenly embrace corruption telegraphs a very wrong message and it is condemnable and ICHEOKU hereby condemns it as unbecoming of any civilized society. 

A country where minimum wage is among the least in the world; where people are still finding it difficult to make ends meet and poverty is still one of the highest in continental Europe, but its political class finds it classy to glorify such a criminal misbehavior of official corruption, making the misconduct of bribery no longer illegal. What a mind boggling blow to the effort to bring the country up to date and in conformity with civilized behavior and tame its corruption. It is unbelievable that in a country where 1,170 cases were prosecuted and damages worth $1.07 recovered just within only three years, its politicians are giving impetus to this malady. ICHEOKU agrees with Romania President Klaus Iohannis that the adoption of the pro-corruption measure is a mourning for the rule of law, which has received a grave blow from the enemies of justice. ICHEOKU agrees too that such open adoption of corruption would greatly encourage the abusive behavior of public workers, dishonesty, and immorality within the Romanian society. What a people who in short owes the Ceausescu apology.
