Why Yellowtards need people like @PinoyAkoBlog to ‘say what they want to say’

Unfortunately for the pro-Duterte community, the recent exposés on the identities of those behind certain anti-Duterte websites – SilentNoMorePH and PinoyAkoBlog among them – did not have the desired effect. Rather than flush out others who are involved in what is widely believed to be a well-oiled information control machine, one of the persons identified, […]

So what if the Philippines is removed from the UN Human Rights Council?

Suffice to say, the Yellowtard and Liberal Party-led opposition resorted to “pressure” from international entities early on, in the hope of weaning local support away from president Rodrigo Duterte. Among the entities that have “expressed concern” for the Duterte administration’s alleged extrajudicial killings and alleged no-basis detainment of political enemies (Leila de Lima, anyone) include: […]

VP Leni Robredo on Senate reorg — yet another failed grasp at relevance

This is the latest “statement” from “vice president” Leni Robredo related to the recent reorganisation of the Senate that resulted in certain Liberal Party (LP) senators being relieved of their committee chairmanships… When we were given the mandate by the people, we were determined to work with this administration to put national interest before politics.

In fact the war between any Philippine Government and the Church has been raging for some time — specifically in efforts to curb the galloping […]

Is the Roman Catholic Church ‘full of shit’?

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte thinks so. Duterte railed against the hypocrisy of the Church in a speech he delivered Monday asserting, as a matter of fact, that the hallowed institution is full of the proverbial brown stuff. Church officials have been vocal in condemning the extrajudicial killings that had attended the administration’s crackdown on the […]

Jim Paredes sang anti-US song “American Junk” back in 1987

These are the lyrics to the song “American Junk” released by Jim Paredes and the Apo Hiking Society in 1987. Leave me alone to my third world devices I don’t need your technology You just want my natural resources And then you leave me poor and in misery Third world blues is what I got […]

Duterte wants Filipinos to eliminate their colonial mentality

There is a lot of wailing and weeping in the Philippines lately. Most of the noise is coming from critics of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. His critics appear to be disappointed that there was hardly any fallout after his tirade against U.S. President Barack Obama before he left for the ASEAN summit in Laos. They […]
