Ronnie Dayan’s comedic presentation to the media a prelude to a farcical Congressional hearing

After a massive manhunt, Ronnie Dayan, the elusive former driver-cum-lover (pardon the pun) of Senator Leila de Lima, finally falls. Seeing him live on TV for the first time gives us a better sense of who Dayan is. Suffice to say, he does not come across as one of the brighter bulbs in the room. […]

If Anything, We Can Only Blame Noynoy And The LP For The Burial Of Marcos In LNMB

Okay, let’s get some things squared away first. Unlike Charles Englund, I’m not a martial law baby, I was born a little later and yes, I’ll accept the criticism that I am indeed probably too young or ignorant to be aware of the Marcos regime’s atrocities and cruelties.

It was highly understandable to me why Filipinos would swarm to Duterte in droves. Like […]

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it […]

To Trillanes: You did not complain when BS Aquino broke his promises

Convicted mutineer and now Senator Antonio Trillanes is appealing to the public not to turn a blind eye to current President Rodrigo Duterte’s habit of breaking his promises.
