Ph Opposition commentary on #ASEAN2017 fails to pass standards of INTELLIGENT discourse

True to form, self-described critics of the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte have taken positions, presumably over the duration of this year’s summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) hosted in Manila, to aim their sniper scopes at the events. As snipers would do, they are putting every quip, gesture, and nuance […]

TIME Magazine is using Shibby de Guzman to influence Philippine politics

If you want more evidence Western mainstream media is deliberately manipulating politics in the Philippines, take a look at TIME magazine’s latest list of the most influential teens around the world. The international publication included 14-year old Filipina Shibby de Guzman in the list. It is not clear how the editors arrived at the conclusion […]

The Philippine Opposition needs to divorce the CBCP in order to progress their agenda

Following the big hype leading to Sunday’s “prayer rally” instigated by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) and the pathetic turnout observed over the course of this little powow, the usual question comes up: What’s next? Evidently this is something that, yet again, wasn’t carefully thought through. Then again, not much thinking is […]

Another ‘prayer rally’ proves again the irrelevance and hopelessness of the Opposition

Yet another “prayer rally”, and Filipinos add more proof of how primitive their politics is. What exactly does a “prayer rally” achieve? This latest one today, the 5th November 2017 to be held at the EDSA Shrine is being pitched in an Inquirer report as one that will harbour “no politics, just prayers for healing”. […]

Duterte’s critics should get an award for being inconsistent

The Philippine Opposition, which consist mainly of the Liberal Party, its supporters, and allies, deserve an award. They deserve an award for trying. They are trying hard to paint a picture that the country is all “doom and gloom” under President Rodrigo Duterte. They are also trying hard to paint themselves as “victims” of oppression. […]

The Philippines’ real tyrants are the Catholic Bishops, NOT its ELECTED officials

Seems like all the screeching about “tyranny”, “dictatorship” and abuse of “human rights” have for so long been directed at the wrong people and the wrong institutions. Right within Filipinos’ midst is an even more insidious tyranny — one that has renmained disguised under a persona of righteousness that conceals a dark power that has […]

Filipinos were taught FAKE Philippine history for 30 years!

Back in the heyday decades of Yellowtardism in the 1980s and 1990s, mass communication was pretty much a one-way street. The ability to efficiently reach a mass audience was a capitalist monopoly — held by those who possessed the means to organise enterprises that could build and operate what today are regarded as conventional broadcast […]

This year’s CBCP Halloween stunt: ‘A Night of Horror during Duterte’s Time’

It is quite laughable the way Inquirer columnist Rina Jimenez-David in her opinion piece today trumpets the role of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in “leading” yet another political stunt (disguised as a religious “mourning” ritual) in the lead up to the Day of the Dead this November. She writes referring to […]
