Yellow lives matter, but Duterte-styled Iron-Fisted Visionaries (IFVs) matter more

The Yellows are struggling to survive these days, and the fact they need to face is the enormous capital flight that’s taking place in the form of lost market share. Much of the attention, clout and following they used to enjoy and thought to be their birthright have steadily dwindled away like the vital signs […]

Filipinos Are Freer Under Duterte

In the days after the declaration of Martial Law, merely criticizing former President Ferdinand Marcos could get one picked up and there are claims that many of those picked up simply disappeared. Fear of speaking against Marcos back then was such that a friend’s mother (a college professor at a state university) buried several books […]

The ‘debate’ over a ‘revolutionary government’ is a complete waste of time

Back in 1986 following the EDSA “people power revolution”, Cory Aquino, who was crowned leader of this “revolution” by the Imperial Manila “activists” of the time, was installed as president of the Yellowtards’ “revolutionary government”. Legitimisation of Aquino’s government was easy, thanks to the Philippines’ being a predominantly starstruck “God-fearing” Roman Catholic society. All the […]

Filipinos, get 100% behind your Army and prepare to CRUSH the terrorist New People’s Army!

Now that the Philippine government will be in an “all-out” war against the New People’s Army (NPA), the terrorist arm of the Communist Party of the Philippines, it is worth exploring some lessones learnt from the recent war that liberated Marawi City from similar terrorist elements. To be sure, a war against the NPA will […]

We need to help develop true thinking Pinoys rather than mere following Pinoys

My colleague Paul Farol, the other day, pointed out that the best way to combat the Yellowtards’ troll-like social media behaviour and style of “debate” is “to take the game to where the yellows cannot follow.” It seems some key social media personalities within the so-called “die-hard Duterte supporters” (DDS) clique have failed to do […]

Harry Roque should speak in plain language to avoid confusing Filipinos

The on-going hoo-ha over certain fears that certain spokespersons would “throw hollow blocks” (or cinder blocks, a popular low-cost building material used in the Philippines) on the heads of certain noted reporters from one of the big mainstream media outlets who, in turn, is threatening legal action against certain pro-administration bloggers for suggesting such an […]

Why Filipinos should support Harry Roque, their new presidential spokesman

The trouble with “thought leaders” of the Philippine Opposition is that they often think and behave like spurned adolescent lovers more than rational adults. The way they launched into a shrieking fit over the recent move of renowned human rights lawyer Harry Roque into the Malacanang team reeks of vindictiveness and lacks any semblance of […]

The stupidity in comparing the Marawi War to the Mamasapano PNP operation and Zamboanga conflict

The tragic Mamasapano operation (mounted during the term of Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III) in which 44 Special Action Force officers were massacred by elements of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front was not a military operation. It was a police operation gone wrong. This fact, however, did not stop Opposition “activists” from making […]
