Why Leni Robredo will FAIL as leader of the Philippine Opposition

The Philippines’ Opposition do need a leader. Desperately. Indeed, I’ve recognised that a long time ago in my July 2014 piece The Philippine opposition remains too flaccid and disorganised to EXPLOIT the current situation. I wrote then how “as Opposition to former President Marcos, then during the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the Yellow […]

What do the Yellowtards stand for and who do they look to for leadership?

There is a question that’s baffled me over the last several weeks now: What do the Yellowtards stand for and who do they look to for leadership? 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, […]

Noynoy Aquino expresses grave fears of a Bongbong Marcos win in #EDSA30 speech!

It is quite telling that Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III would go as far as reminding Filipinos to stop referring to the regime of former President Ferdinand Marcos as the Philippines’ “Golden Age”. It means BS Aquino now recognises the immense popularity of vice presidential candidate Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr as a grave […]

Riding the Ninoy-Cory “legacy” is riding a bunch of lies

President BS Aquino III has always repeated his parents’ “glory” and their “sacrifices for the country” ad nauseam in his speeches.

There does not seem to be an answer to that question. Why? Because Filipinos are at an utter loss with regard to who to root and vote for in […]

Filipinos need a radically NEW kind of nationalism

The epic failure that was the 5th State of the Nation Address (SONA) of Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III this week highlights a pressing need for Filipinos to come up with a new — more modern — form of nationalistic drive. What President BS Aquino essentially did this week was break the proverbial […]

The Philippine opposition remains too flaccid and disorganised to EXPLOIT the current situation

The trouble with the Opposition today is that there is none such of consequence. And to be fair to the Yellow mob surrounding Philippine President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, they were, as oppositionists during past regimes, a tough act to follow. After all, as Opposition to former President Marcos, then during the administration of […]

Philippine President Noynoy Aquino starts a bloodless civil war over #DAP!

War is now brewing between the Executive Branch of the Philippine government headed by President Benigno Simeon ‘BS” Aquino III and the Supreme Court headed by Aquino-appointed Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno. This is a path chosen by President BS Aquino after the epic fail that was his public address last Monday, the 14th July where […]
