What will the Philippines do if America walks away?

We already know the answer to that question. Back in 1991, Philippine Congress voted to boot Uncle Sam’s boys out of her shores for good. Since then, the Philippines had undergone a steep decline to irrelevance in the world stage. Along with that came tumbling her ability to defend herself. Indeed, one would have thought […]

Sorry, Joe. No more boom-boom in Manila and Olongapo City

If I were a businessman of any sort in the Philippines, I’d be fuming. In most NORMAL countries, the arrival of shiploads of young, cashed-up, and physically vigorous American military personnel would be greeted with joy and eyes flashing with $$ signs. Not in the Philippines though. The other day, the United States aircraft carrier […]

Preliminary hearing on Jeffrey Laude death snubbed by Pemberton, Filipino ‘activists’ furious!!

As expected, US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton was a no-show in yesterday’s preliminary hearing on the death of Filipino transgender Jeffrey Laude in which he stands accused. Pemberton’s legal counsel Rowena Garcia Flores reportedly argued that her client’s presence was “not required” and that he “was still studying the complaint against him.” In response, chief […]

However, reports abound that many Filipinos supposedly aren’t […]

Why Lucio Tan gets to keep his loot while Manny Pacquiao’s all remain frozen

On one hand, the issue surrounding the tax evasion case the Philippines’ Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) is raising against boxing champ Manny Pacquiao is pretty straightforward. The BIR had given Pacquiao two years to submit the documents required of him specific among them are original tax returns from the United States’s Internal Revenue Service […]

Commies in the Philippine Senate open doors to pork barrel funding of NPA and other terrorists

Various communist front organisations are now crying bloody murder over the on-going party-list purge being undertaken by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to rid the country of groups found to be inconsistent with the party-list concept. Communist front Bayan Muna, for one, faced with mounting pressure to justify its continued branding as a party-list group […]

Oil prices are up therefore women suffer according to Gabriela logic

It seems even the “experts” on women’s issues got it wrong as far as what could’ve been the whole point of commemorating International Women’s Day celebrated today, the 8th of March. Quite ironic that the most visible group that claims to be fighting for “women’s issues” takes their name from Filipino folk hero Gabriela Silang, […]
