Why Killing Terrorists is A Much-Approved Policy

Duterte’s comment about shooting insurgent women “down there” really raised a storm, as expected from someone like him. It does after all reflect the culture of those parts, with sexism and rural crassness. I agree it didn’t need to be said that way. But even if Duterte simply said, “then shoot them,” that would still […]

Leni Robredo’s claim to the Philippine vice presidency remains questionable to this day

The battle to extract the truth about electoral fraud that marred the 2016 Philippine Presidential Elections drags on because presumptive “vice president” Leni Robredo continues to hinder progress in the investigation. Without going into the details of the case (all of which is publicly-available, save for the facts of those who argue that no fraud […]

Here is why an International Criminal Court (ICC) case against Duterte will not progress…

Of late, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is the subject of a complaint filed before the ICC accusing him of “crimes against humanity” and Opposition has been exchanging mutual high-fives over news that the ICC has initiated “preliminary investigations” on the matter. Are the agents of the much-feared “International Criminal Court” (ICC) about to parachute into […]

SC Chief Justice Sereno should be removed from office and arrested for non filing of SALN

When there are so many pressing issues to write about, it gets so confusing sorting out which one to prioritise.

Maria Ressa continues to LIE about the “death” of “press freedom” in the Philippines

It’s been several weeks since the Philippines’ Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a shutter order to “social news network” Rappler for violation of constitutional provisions banning foreign control of media businesses in the country. Over that period, RapplerCEO Maria Ressa has campaigned vigorously to spin this compliance violation into one around an imagined issue […]

Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is a FAKE VICTIM because she is a crime SUSPECT

It would seem, indeed, that Rappler was “targetted” by the Philippine government when it was singled out for shut down through action channeled via the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on charges of accepting foreign funds in exchange for some degree of control. Some “journalists” have incorporated that notion into the “assault on free speech” […]

Bongbong Marcos need not run for senator because he is already Vice President of the Philippines

Why is Bongbong Marcos the Vice President of the Philippines? Simple. Because presumtive “vice president” Leni Robredo was originally disqualified from taking office. And it was not just Robredo who was disqualified. The entire Liberal Party lineup in the 2016 elections was effectively disqualified. Recall, following the conclusion of those elections, Robredo’s running mate and […]

Noynoy Aquino contradicts experts’ claim that Dengvaxia procurement did not follow standard procedure

Former Philippine President BS Aquino received praises from his supporters for showing up at the Senate investigation being conducted on the purchase of dengue vaccine Dengvaxia from French Pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur. It was akin to a child receiving an award just for showing up in class. It’s as if Aquino had a choice whether […]
