Duterte’s critics should get an award for being inconsistent

The Philippine Opposition, which consist mainly of the Liberal Party, its supporters, and allies, deserve an award. They deserve an award for trying. They are trying hard to paint a picture that the country is all “doom and gloom” under President Rodrigo Duterte. They are also trying hard to paint themselves as “victims” of oppression. […]

#CocoyGate: The Amazing Issues On-and-Off Switch used by Yellowtard ‘thought leaders’!

It is hardly surprising that the very same “fake news” that the Philippine Opposition had been screeching about over the last several months has suddenly become a non-issue. Selective “activism”, after all, is a Yellowtard expertise. Indeed, the list of “non-issues” kept by the Opposition (led by the Liberal Party, a.k.a. the “Yellowtards”) is growing. […]

Former USec Francis Baraan III: Was he really involved in drug trafficking at the New Bilibid Prisons?

Last we recall, Senator Leila De Lima remains locked up on charges of “sale, trading, administration, dispensation, delivery, distribution and transportation of illegal drugs” related to allegations that she was involved in a conspiracy together with other high-ranking government officials to allow a multi-million peso drug trade to flourish within the National Bilibid Prisons (NBP) […]

@TIME exaggerates De Lima’s “heroism”, paints the Philippines as lawless under Duterte

As someone who still pays for a weekly subscription, I’m very disappointed at TIME Magazine editors. I just realised that after all these years reading about and admiring people featured on their annual 100 most influential list, it turns out that some on the list include people whose achievements were simply romanticised, exaggerated or completely […]

Campaign to put Duterte in @TIME ‘100 Most Influential’ list backfires!

Well, supporters of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte got what they wanted. Filipinos apparently logged on in droves on to the TIME Magazine website and spam-voted Duterte into its “100 Most Influential” list. As a result, Duterte actually topped the readers’ poll and did get a place amongst the most influential in the venerable news site’s […]

Is Philippine House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez saying extra-marital affairs are “normal”?

Current Speaker of the Philippine House of Representative Pantaleón Álvarez recently came under fire after his extramarital affair was exposed. To be precise, he copped some flak from some sectors of society, but not all. Apparently, it was an “open-secret” in Congress that Alvarez has a girlfriend, but for some “reason”, presumably because he is […]

ARRESTED: Sen. Leila de Lima can now talk all she wants — before a proper Philippine court

Of course anyone who’s been charged and arrested would deny and deny the accusations. Senator Leila de Lima is no exception. And there is no shortage of “groups” backing her denials of wrongdoing. True to form, the Inquirer gives such voices prime space such as one “coalition” known as “One for Leila”… “We reject and […]
