Kidapawan protester brutally mauling Filipino police officer captured on video! #BigasHindiBala

Social media “activists” continue to lambast the Philippine National Police for the alleged “brutality” with which they handled the situation on Friday the 1st of April as protesting “farmers” descended upon Kidapawan.

Kidapawan ‘massacre’: Aquino government falls victim to Victim Mentality Activism

There is an important lesson in the alleged “massacre” of hungry farmers in Kidapawan, North Cotabato during an allegedly “violent” dispersal of a protest rally there.

The Aquino name is now synonymous with the word ‘massacre’ #BigasHindiBala

Philippine President Benigno Simeon Aquino’s term will now go down in history as the massacre years.

The millennial generation of Filipinos have helped in what 5-10 years ago would have seemed as an impossible PR turnaround by Senator Bongbong Marcos, son of the late “dictator” Ferdinand E. Marcos. The only son of the late president is running for vice president, and several groups have protested what they say is an attempt […]

Marcos and the Red Scare: Martial Law in Retrospect

With the recent 30th Anniversary of the 1986 EDSA “Revolution”, the martial law era of President Ferdinand E. Marcos was once again put in bad light. This, as President BS Aquino again showed the alleged atrocities of the Marcos regime without being able to highlight whatever he was able to achieve. Again, there were morons […]
