Leni Robredo’s claim to the Philippine vice presidency remains questionable to this day

The battle to extract the truth about electoral fraud that marred the 2016 Philippine Presidential Elections drags on because presumptive “vice president” Leni Robredo continues to hinder progress in the investigation. Without going into the details of the case (all of which is publicly-available, save for the facts of those who argue that no fraud […]

Senate inquiry on “fake news” turns into pointless finger-pointing exercise

It’s not clear what Senator Grace Poe as the chairman for the Committee on Public Information and Mass Media wanted to achieve in conducting a hearing on fake news. The hearing did not have any clear objective. Poe just allowed the resource speakers to state their claim and then… nothing. She doesn’t even ask for […]

Bongbong Marcos need not run for senator because he is already Vice President of the Philippines

Why is Bongbong Marcos the Vice President of the Philippines? Simple. Because presumtive “vice president” Leni Robredo was originally disqualified from taking office. And it was not just Robredo who was disqualified. The entire Liberal Party lineup in the 2016 elections was effectively disqualified. Recall, following the conclusion of those elections, Robredo’s running mate and […]

Isabelle Duterte’s photoshoot in Malacanang is a problem for people with fragile egos

Members of the Opposition are seething with anger after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s granddaughter did a pre-debut photoshoot inside the Malacanang Palace supposedly for her 18th birthday celebration. Isabelle Duterte has been the talk of the town in social media and her critics are not ready to let go of the issue just yet insisting […]

With MRT and Dengue vaccine fiascos, it’s time for Leni Robredo to admit Noynoy gov’t incompetence

Ever since she was fired from her post as Secretary for Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council in 2016, current Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo has to keep the appearance of doing something “productive” lest the public forget her. She’s not doing much except attending ceremonial events and commenting on various issues that make the […]

A ‘revolutionary government’ led by the incumbent president is an insane idea

The trouble with Filipinos is they are shortsighted. They are focused on instant gratification and consistently fail to see the long view. This is evident today seeing all major political camps, the Yellowtards, the Dutertards, and the commies calling for measures that can only be implemented outside of the Constitution. The Yellowtards, of course, mount […]

Three ingredients essential for the Philippines to progress that ‘thought leaders’ fail to address

The trouble with the Philippines’ political discourse today is that it is hopelessly partisan. As a result, there is no energy channeled into mapping a way forward for the Philippines. Instead, much of the talk is around discrediting one other. Whilst there is a small niche within the social media chatter that appreciates and rewards […]

#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. […]
