Philippine Opposition fails to propose ALTERNATIVES to Duterte’s “senatoriables”

Philippine Opposition “activists” and their dogs (and vice versa) are now frantically chattering about the work-in-progress going into the list of “senatoriables” to be endorsed by the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Despite this Opposition, led by the Liberal Party (a.k.a. the Yellowtards), sustaining shrill calls to campaign against these candidates, they offer no […]

Bam Aquino’s call for a ‘Genuine Opposition’ highlights the lack of one in Philippine politics

According to Senator Bam Aquino he will be joining a “coalition slate, which will be made up of people willing to speak out and stand up against Malacanang’s policies that may be damaging to the people”. In a post on his website, Aquino called for a need for a “genuine opposition”… “In 2019, hindi lang […]

How Filipino liberal women have WEAPONISED the Feminist Movement against Duterte

Step back from the political chatter of social media for a moment and ask yourself: Are the “issues” being backed by the loudest, shrillest voices at the moment the most important ones? To answer that question we need first to define the term “important” in this context. What is important to the average Filipino? The […]

The Philippines is ‘in crisis’ because its Opposition lacks direction

“Thought leaders” of the Philippine Opposition have been screeching about various imagined crises gripping the Philippines since Day One of the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. While these screeches have grown louder over the last year-and-a-half of Duterte’s presidency, the actual underlying nature and sense behind these quaint cries of “outrage” haven’t really evolved. […]

In Philippine politics, women should NOT “woman up”. They should MAN up.

“Tought leaders” of the Philippine Opposition don’t do their cause any favours by constantly playing the Woman Card whenever they feel offended. Real feminists, after all, fought hard for “gender equality”. By that, we presume, women would like to be on equal footing with men. I wonder if they really know the core essence of […]

The Rapplerettes in Mullets of the 1986 “People Power Revolution”

Assistant Secretary for Social Media Mocha Uson actually does raise scrumptuous food for thought in her two recent “surveys” regarding the 1986 EDSA “People Power Revolution”. Uson presumably uses today’s loose definition of “fake news” being bandied around by, in all ironies, the Liberal Party leaders of the Opposition (a.k.a. the Yellowtards) and the Catholic […]

The Philippine Opposition is obsolete and needs to be replaced with one focused on nation building

What next? Again, this is the question Filipinos are left with following this year’s “EDSA People Power Revolution” anniversary. Specifically, the question of how exactly to build upon the experience of this 1986 “revolution” has become a head-scratcher for most. It all seemed clear back then — how “freedom” would be the foundation upon which […]

The Philippine Opposition’s sad colonial mentality

It is sad, the way the Philippine Opposition led by the Liberal Party (referred to by many as the “Yellowtards”) has adopted a strategy of running to the West for validation and then using that validation to influence Filipinos. It demonstrates that they are a pale shadow of the political force they are desperately pitching […]
