|Politics / Re: President Jonathan Is Our Mandela ~ Doyin Okupe (on AIT) December 6, 2013 by Ilekokonit: 9:04am|
These Politicians are actually poking their fingers in our eyes and daring us to do our worst because they know fully well that the balance of power is tilted in their favour.
One of them has actually called Patience Jonathan his own Jesus Christ on earth and now the inept Jonathan is compared to Mandela.
Jonathan is surrounded by advisers who are mocking him and will eventually lead him to disgrace.

This is so true. I remember leaving home to avoid an argument with my Ex some years ago and after having had a not so sound sleep at a Bed & Breakfast, I came back home on a Saturday morning in the hope that she will at least let me catch a few hours more sleep. But she wasn't having it and wanted to continue the argument from where we left it the previous night. These UK Naija women sef. Its like this UK brings out the hidden witchcraft tendencies in Niaja women.

coogar: so which action preceded the other? the wife parking & refusing to move or him getting off & continuing his journey on foot?
Well spotted again. Afterall we are not told that the man jumped down from her speeding car. She must have stopped the car for the man to have gotten off the car in the first place. The question remains :- Why did the Wife from Hell stop the car on an Express road in the first place. Some Nigerian wives in the UK and the US do more damage to a man than the devil

Well spotted. Any one who knows the UK's motorways or any other motorway for that matter knows fully well that with the speed at which cars travel thereon, nobody stops for hitchikers so the woman must have told him to get out of her car the same way these Devils call the cops to kick a man out of his own house right in front of his kids.
coogar: this is a very selfish woman - the type to be avoided.
To be quite honest a lot if not most Westernised Naija Women are already selfish in large measure and bad for you on the long run.

This Death was Avoidable if the Man had Divorced the Woman the Minute she shows her true colour as a Poison Tongued Demon
The argument became very aggressive and his voice changed,' she said.
Why wind up your man to the point where the argument becomes aggressive ?
Mrs Olokun-Ola told how things were tense at home due to financial problems.
Typical Nigerian woman in the UK. They always respect the man when he is financially buoyant BUT once his fortunes change for the worse, then he will see their nastier side. Guess our women were not listening on their wedding day when the Pastor said "For Better for Worse" / "For Richer for Poorer"
She no longer felt comfortable driving and pulled over to what she thought was the hardshoulder. The stretch of the M25 where the accident happened was unlit.
The guy obviously knew what was coming and knew the woman was going to tell him to get out of what was possibly her car BUT which demoness in her right mind stops the car on an Express road just to prove her power over her husband
The fight started because she wanted their bank card while he was away.
Never open a joint account with a Westernised Nigerian woman.
Now she has succeeded in hounding the man to death, she can now go and marry her bank card after killing the man who stupidly opened a joint bank account with the cantankerous devil.
'I got out the car and at first I was angry because he didn’t come running over to see if I was okay,' she said. 'I initially couldn’t see him anywhere.'
You have just hounded your husband to death and one of your first thoughts is that he didn’t come running over to see if you were okay !!! Who the hell do these UK Nigerian women think they are that they expect their men to come running at their beck and call ??
Left to me, ALL Nigerian women in the UK will remain single until they come down from their high horses and stop dragging power with men.
You can now see the mindset of a UK based Nigerian woman that accounts for the reason more smart Naija guys in the UK are literarily postponing marriage indefinitely instead of marrying these demons.
it is better to reside in a small corner of the roof than live with a brawling woman in a mansion
Now the poison tongued hen pecking husband hounder has to forever live with the fact that she contributed in no small part to the death of her childrens father
What is a hen pecked husband ??
A hen pecked husband is a man whose wife never stops picking on or criticising him.
To try to dominate or harass (one's husband) with persistent nagging

|Islam for Muslims / 'Sex Jihad' Sees Tunisian Women Return From Syria Pregnant By Rebels by Ilekokonit: 1:14am On Sep 21|
Tunisian women are travelling to Syria to partake in a “intimate jihad” by comforting rebel fighters, a minister has claimed.
“They have intimate relations with 20, 30, 100 militants”, Interior Minister Lofti Bin Jeddou reportedly told members of the National Constituent Assembly on Thursday.
“After the intimate liaisons they have there in the name of ‘jihad al-nikah’ (intimate holy war), they come home pregnant,” he added in quotes provided by AFP.

Tunisian women have been travelling to Syria to offer intimate comfort to rebel fighters, a minister has claimed
While he did not put a figure on the number of women allegedly partaking, Bin Jeddou claimed 6,000 Tunisians had been banned from travelling to Syria since March, and that 86 individuals had been arrested on suspicion of forming “networks” to send them there, Al Arabiya reports.
Hundreds of Tunisian men have also gone to join the ranks of jihadists fighting to overthrow the regime of President Bashar Assad.
intimate jihad fatwas typically allow armed members to have intimate intercourse with women as part of a temporary contract. It also allows women to sleep with more than one man a day, Fars News explains.
It is considered by some hardline Sunni Muslim Salafists as a legitimate form of holy war.
It emerged the practice was occurring in Syria some months ago.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Former Mufti of Tunisia Sheikh Othman Battikh complained in April that 13 Tunisian girls were "fooled" into traveling to Syria to offer intimate intercourse to rebel fighters, in order to create an army strong enough to topple the regime.
The origins of these “temporary marriages” have been attributed to Saudi Arabian scholar Sheikh Mohammed al-Arifi, Iranian channel Press TV reported in December last year.
Al-Arifi was claimed to have issued a fatwa permitting militants to engage in short-term marriages with Syrian women as young as 14 to “satisfy… their intimate desires and boost their determination in killing Syrians.”
According to CNS.News, al-Arifi later disowned the fatwa, though some Arab commentators are sceptical, with one source telling Al-Bawaba in March: “Then again, one might backtrack, standing accused of selling young innocents to militant Muslims.”
Al-Arifii has sparked controversy with previous fatwas, including one which demanded daughters do not wear revealing clothing or sit alone with their fathers, lest they incite his lust.

|Religion / Norman Vincent Peale Was A Freemason by Ilekokonit: 11:33pm On Sep 12|
Just found out that Norman Vincent Peale the author of the best selling book "The Power of Positive Thinking" was a 33° member of the Midwood Freemason Lodge No. 1062, Brooklyn, New York. He was Grand Chaplain for the Grand Lodge of New York. He received the 33rd in 1959 and the Gourgas Medal in 1973.
This got me thinking because I remember hearing Bishop David Oyedepo once preach that the above book by Norman Vincent Peale made a profound impact on him.
Bishop Oyedepo is quoted as saying that "He came across a book titled, “The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale and that this impacted his spirit towards mental excellence."
Now this makes me wonder why Freemasonry was demonized in the past as evil and whether the then young Bishop Oyedepo would have read Vincent Peale's book if he knew then that Peale was a Freemason.

My dear partner and friend, I made a pledge to the Lord to always share every revelation that I receive from Him
with you, so that your life may be built up and strengthened in your journey of faith. Jesus said, “You will know the
truth and the truth will set you free”.
The Lord showed me four years ago how to keep the memorial of the Passover in order to activate the covering of the Lord over my family and for deliverance from the works of darkness. I have experienced this miracle and have testified about it through my preaching.
The Lord inspired me to invite you to celebrate Passover with us. That is the reason why I am writing you this letter; all you have to do is;
1. Fill the enclosed form, stating the things you want God to do for you this year.
2. Enclose with it a Passover family miracle offering (£19, £29, £39, £59, £99 or any amount according to the size of your family). Deut.16:16-17.
Why not raise your faith to £99.00?
3.Post it back to me as soon as you can to put on the prayer altar of our church. I will be praying over these forms with other ministers presenting your request to God.
When I receive your reply I will be sending you a copy of the message I preached titled ‘Open Heavens’. If your offering is above £50, I will include a copy of the Passover family miracle message which I have preached in our service.
I will be sharing with you the revelations God has given me when we celebrate the Passover with our memorial offering.
Why do we ask for an offering as part of the celebration ?
It is because God asked that we should not approach the Passover altar with empty hands. Duet 16:16-17, 2 Chron. 20:20.
Hurry, do not delay while the angel is stirring the water. I look forward to receiving your form back.
Nothing shall be impossible with our God. Now this is your time.
This is your year of uncommon breakthrough, uncommon favour, a year of open heaven for those who honour the covenants of God. Your faith is based on your decision and action. ACT NOW

|Romance / Proved: Those Who Marry In Haste DO Repent At Leisure by Ilekokonit: 12:09am On Sep 11|
It’s a well-known piece of traditional wisdom – and now an academic study has shown that couples who rush into marriage really are more likely to split up.
Researchers who tracked the relationships of 168 couples over 14 years found that those who had the shortest courtships were more likely to split up than those who had spent an extended period of time together before they married – as several celebrities have learned to their cost.
Professor Huston advises couples to ‘enter marriage with eyes open to the strengths and weaknesses of one another and the relationship’.
So a mutual SWOT analysis is necessary before saying "I do" or "I don't"

Jordan Linn Graham, 22, of Montana, told the FBI that she and her husband, 25-year-old Cody Lee Johnson, had been arguing on July 7 as they walked in Glacier National Park
Graham said Johnson grabbed her arm, then she turned around and 'pushed Johnson with both hands in the back, and as a result, he fell face first off the cliff'
She initially told investigators that Johnson left their house late July 7 with unidentified friends in a dark-colored car with Washington state license plates.
That night she texted a friend and said she was about to talk to Johnson about her reservations about their marriage
Husband was reported missing the next day when he failed to show up for work. Wife later reported that she had spotted his body

|Violent/Disgusting Non-Celebrity Crimes / British Airways Pilot Molests Kids As Young As 5 In African Schools & Orphanages by Ilekokonit: 1:29am On Sep 10|
Published: 02 September 2013
British Airways pilot abused children in Africa then killed himself days after facing court
British Airways is facing legal action after a company pilot used his position to abuse more than a hundred vulnerable children in African schools and orphanages.
First Officer Simon Wood, 54, used the cover of charity work for the airline while molesting scores of young girls during his stopovers in Africa.
He used BA branded toys and colouring books to lure girls as young as five out on day trips and to his room at five star international hotels.
Wood, 54, who earned £100,000 a year as a BA pilot, was finally arrested and charged in August after allegedly abusing children for 15 years.
But just two days after he appeared in court in London he threw himself under a train near his home in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
British Airways is now facing a hugely damaging lawsuit brought by his victims, who say the company failed to protect them from his abuse.
The airline said it was “shocked and horrified” to learn of the allegations of child abuse.
BA said it called in its own investigators after receiving an allegation against First Officer Wood in an anonymous letter.
Investigators travelled to Africa and when they discovered the extent of the claims against the pilot the information was handed over to Scotland Yard.
Wood was arrested in the BA staff car park at Heathrow on July 18 in connection with an offence of sexually assaulting a child abroad.
When police searched his laptops they found explicit images of African youngsters.
Wood appeared at Westminster magistrates court on August 16 charged with an indecent assault and possessing indecent images of children.
He was granted bail on the condition he surrender his passport, but killed himself two days later.
Prosecutor Peter Zinner said: “The prosecution say that Mr Wood was a deeply depraved and corrupt individual who had used his ability to fly to other parts of the world to commit intimate offences against children.”
Officials in Kenya have identified at least 15 children, all believed to be girls aged five to 11, that Wood abused – and say they fear there are hundreds more.
Prosecutors suspect the pilot could prove to have been among Britain’s most prolific sex offenders.
Wood first came to the attention of police in 2000 when he was arrested over an allegation of indecently assaulting an eight year old girl who he met while volunteering for Diabetes UK on a trip to North Yorkshire.
The Crown Prosecution Service ruled there was insufficient evidence to charge him and Wood kept his arrest secret from his employers.
Prosecutors have announced that as a result of his death they are halting the case against him.
Jennifer Swiddon, representing Wood, said that her client intended to deny all offences against him prior to his death.
The families of Wood’s brothers Nicholas, 52, and Anthony, 51, said it was “a difficult time for the whole family” and declined to comment.
British Airways said: “Support for children’s homes and schools in Kenya has been part of our community programme for more than 20 years. Cabin crew and flight crew on stopovers in Nairobi often volunteer to visit the establishments while off-duty to help the permanent staff provide activities for the disadvantaged children in their care. All our crew undergo criminal record checks.
“We would be absolutely appalled if it transpired that an employee of ours had been cynically using this charitable work as a cover for exploitation of children he was trusted to help.
“We remain fully committed to supporting our charitable projects in Kenya and elsewhere.”
|Health / Poverty Saps The Brain: Us-india Study by Ilekokonit: 12:33pm On Aug 30|
Poverty hinders an individuals ability to make good decisions and can cause further poverty.
Poverty drains a person's mental resources, leaving him or her less capable of focusing on other things, like solving problems and controlling impulses.
"Because you have all these other things on your mind, you have less mind to give to everything else," said co-author Sendhil Mullainathan, a Harvard University economist.
Being poor can impact cognitive functioning, which hinders individuals' ability to make good decisions and can cause further poverty,"
No wonder our Politicians in Nigeria use "Mass Poverty" to hinder our ability to think straight and kick them out of office.

World class businesses that haven't been able to add value in form of enough Corporation Tax that the UK Govt needs to balance its woeful accounts where the recurrent Yearly Budget deficit is 10% of GDP and the Govt Debt mountain is almost 100% of GDP.
World class businesses that have failed to bail the Govt out of paying £20 million DAILY in interest payments on their colossal debt burden.
World class businesses where Barclays bank was fined $200 Million in June 2012 by the the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission for Attempted Manipulation of and False Reporting concerning Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) and Euribor Benchmark Interest Rates.
Libor underpins approximately $350 trillion in derivatives. It is administered by the British Bankers Association of which Barclays bank is a key member.
On 27 July 2012, the Financial Times published an article by a former trader which stated that Libor manipulation had been common since at least 1991

As part of the agreement deferring its prosecution, HSBC acknowledged that for years it had ignored warning signs that drug cartels in Mexico were using its branches to launder millions of dollars, and also acknowledged that HSBC's international staff had stripped identifying information on transactions made through the United States from countries facing economic sanctions such as Iran and Sudan.
