#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. […]

Liberal Party epic re-brand fail continues to DOOM the Opposition

The Philippine Liberal Party (LP) don’t seem to learn. They must be using the same lame PR consultants that ran “vice president” Leni Robredo’s personal brand to the ground. Sadly (for them), they come across as infantile in the continued use of religious hocus-pocus and prayerful posturing to style themselves as the “decent” choice. It’s […]

Sustaining change is more important than sustaining Duterte’s popularity

As many Philippine History teachers and Rizalistas will attest to, the 19th Century writings of “national hero” Jose Rizal still resonate strongly today in the 21st Century. If true that in more than a century, the Philippines has hardly changed, then, indeed, the confronting question is raised: How much change could any one president actually […]

Philippine Opposition hopelessly fragmented due to lack of an intelligent leader

Some the the Philippines’ most influential social media “thought leaders” — mostly from the current Opposition camp — are clucking about all the wrong things about three of the biggest issues confronting Filipinos today.

Leni Robredo should redeem Trillanes’s dignity after it was crushed by the BBC’s #HARDtalk

Philippine “senator” Antonio Trillanes’s epic choke during an interview with Stephen Sackur in the BBC’s HARDtalk programme last week all but highlighted the sad disarray of the Philippine Opposition. Indeed, last week was a perfect storm as it saw the coming together of insight into just how inutile the Philippine Opposition of today has become. […]

Trillanes TV meltdown a fatal blow to the credibility of the Philippine Opposition

Following the “burning” of Philippine “senator” Antonio Trillanes IV on live TV in the BBC talk show HARDtalk, attention now turns to a beleaguered Opposition faced with the hard question: What now? Trillanes, after all, had been one of if not the most aggressive of the Philippine Opposition’s attack dogs. Now reduced to a national […]

Criticising Duterte for skipping Independence Day rites is futile: Ph is not truly independent!

Current Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo‚Äôs public relations team or, shall we say, propaganda machine is working overtime. They found an opportunity to try and put her image in a good light after President Rodrigo Duterte decided to skip the 119th¬†commemoration of Philippine Independence Day. Photos of her in salute pose during the recent ceremony […]
