Opposition’s lack of a strong leader and vision secures Duterte’s hold on power

What were the Opposition thinking when they came up with their latest media stunt? It’s an aping of the Hunger Games salute that came across like the Nazi Sieg Heil! salute. Talk about double-whammy fail! If this was attempt at a rebranding to distance themselves from the Yellowtards, it seems they made things worse and […]

Time for Filipinos to junk the old Martial Law narrative!

It’s time indeed. Filipino “activists” have worn the old Martial Law scarecrow to tatters. The idea that vigilance involves raising a screeching fit whenever even just a hint of the dreaded two words M-A-R-T-I-A-L L-A-W are detected in a verbal or written message is now a mere quaint relic of a peiod when “freedom fighters” […]

President Duterte should NEVER forget Leni Robredo’s vicious campaign against him

At the centre of all the chatter surrounding the ascent of Leni Robredo to the office of the Vice President of the Philippines lies the question: What will be her role in the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte? The future does not look too bright for the presumptive “vice president”. Putting aside the allegations of […]

Goodbye to a rule-breaker. Goodbye Noynoy Aquino!

The time to say goodbye to Philippine President Benigno Simeon Aquino is finally here. It is hard to believe it has been six years. To some, it has been the most unbearable six years.

On first glance, the answer to this question seems obvious. Of course they stand for all the good things delivered by the 1986 people power “revolution”; freedom, democracy, […]

Clueless Noynoy Aquino doesn’t understand why Filipinos hate Daang Matuwid

Even as his days in Malacanang are about to end in a matter of weeks, Philippine President Benigno  Simeon Aquino remains utterly clueless as to why the voters are now rejecting his Daang Matuwid mantra, which his bet and former cabinet member Mar Roxas has promised to continue if elected as the next President. In a […]

Mar Roxas’s fatal campaign error: Selling continuity to a people who wanted change

It should have been obvious from the onset. Filipinos are not happy with the status quo under which they slog through life in the Philippines. Day-to-day, they are beaten down by rampant crime, imprisoned by gridlocked traffic, cowed by Islamic terrorism, and deeply embarrassed by an inability of their own armed forces to protect their […]

High-performance choppers transport Kris Aquino to Cebu LP campaign!

Rarely would one witness such an awesome array of Philippine government air assets assembled at one time — not even during a disaster! Exhibited in a recent set of photos making the social media rounds is what seems to be an armada of no less than five helicopters escorting presidential sister Kris Aquino to a […]
