Opposition’s lack of a strong leader and vision secures Duterte’s hold on power

What were the Opposition thinking when they came up with their latest media stunt? It’s an aping of the Hunger Games salute that came across like the Nazi Sieg Heil! salute. Talk about double-whammy fail! If this was attempt at a rebranding to distance themselves from the Yellowtards, it seems they made things worse and […]

To every Filipino ‘activist’ slogan, always ask: ‘And then what?’

The thing with “activist” slogans proliferating in the lead up to that big 21st September rally being hyped all over social media is they all express a call to “stop” or “end” something. They are so the same and so unoriginal that you can list them all here and kind of forget which timeframe or […]

Filipinos have come to prefer VIOLENT solutions to their national problems

Who owns the concept of “human rights”? Is it the United Nations? Is it the Commission on Human Rights (CHR)? Is it Chito Gascon? Is it the Yellowtards? If we are to believe certain “thought leaders”, it seems everyone but ordinary Filipinos are “human rights” advocates. They are overdue for a reality check. Just within […]

‘Human rights abuse’ is perpetrated ONLY by cops and soldiers according to @CHRgovPh

The recent proposal to drastically cut public funds allocated to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) has put the spotlight on other government agencies that are of dubious value to the Filipino people. It has long been recognised that Filipinos suffer from a government that is big, fat, complex, and slow and could greatly benefit […]

1000 pesos is a princely sum for a non-value-adding agency like @CHRPhilippines

It is really up to Chito Gascon, head of the Philippines’ Commission on Human Rights (CHR) to convince the Filipino people why his organisation deserves to be allotted more than 1,000 pesos this year. Congress, after all, are made up of popularly-elected representatives of the Filipino people. As such, their decision to grant this sum […]

Will the next anti-Duterte rally be AWESOME enough for Millennials?

According to various sources, there will be (yet another) protest rally against the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte in the coming days. What are these rallyists going to protest? Duterte’s purported authoritarianism? Martial Law in Mindanao? “Killings” related to his “war on drugs”? So what else is new? This is, after all, the era […]

Filipinos are only good at being afraid of Martial Law and not much else

There are things worse than being under the sort of Martial Law former President Ferdinand Marcos oversaw in the 1970s — like being invaded by a foreign army, being struck by a killer earthquake or cyclone, being genetically mutated by years of exposure to diesel fumes, being stabbed to death by a drug-crazed loser, or […]

Here is why Trillanes is responsible for Sonia Brady’s stroke and Angelo Reyes’s suicide…

If we are to use the logic of the Opposition, we can argue that “senator” Antonio Trillanes caused the stroke suffered by former Ambassador to China Sonia Brady and the suicide of the late Ret. General Angelo Reyes. Here’s why. The Opposition are adamant in their assertion that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is responsible for […]
