Filipino soldiers get no respect and support from Liberal Party and anti-Martial Law ‘activists’

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s proclamation of Martial Law over the entire Mindanao region following the military operation in Marawi City that resulted in protracted battle with the Maute terrorists has given members of the Liberal Party and anti-Martial Law advocates reason to make more noise. When before they were simply nit-picking on his tirades, now […]

The Philippine Liberal Party, its allies and its supporters are the real enemies of the Filipino people

Some of us have always thought that Filipinos in general are both gullible and pushovers. This notion lends itself to the fact that Filipinos have been sidelined by their neighbours in South East Asia – people who started out with countries as backward as the Philippines. But the belief all Filipinos are slow is not […]

The uneasy impasse between LP-tards and Dutertards

Fanaticism on both seemingly “opposite” sides of the political spectrum is something that will never truly be non-existent in any society. The peculiar thing about fanaticism in the Philippine political scene, however, is that it doesn’t have a track record of being rooted in opposite ideologies. Rather, Filipinos have become used to characterizing it as […]

Current VP Leni Robredo’s vanity and delusions of grandeur got her in deep trouble

We all have that moment when we ask ourselves “What the hell was I thinking?!” after we realise we made a huge mistake and then wish we could kick ourselves on our backsides for doing something we regret. Yes, it happens to the best of us. We are not perfect, after all. In a lot […]

Go forward with Duterte, or slide backward with the Liberal Party – Filipinos are left little choice

Of course, the “logically obsessed” would beg to disagree. They will contend that just because one criticizes Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte, it doesn’t mean that they are “dilawan”, or siding with the Liberal Party (LP) – arguably the loudest voice in the opposition, or some people would like to say, the anti-Duterte camp. And vice […]

The far-right rises in the Philippines

Nationalism has been reborn in the Philippines, and the yellows and liberals have failed to realize what is going on. One of my criticisms of Philippine politics has always been the lack of party principles, as all our political parties are on the center of the traditional left-right political spectrum. This is largely because the […]

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. […]

The Liberal Party has FAILED in its role as part of ‘the opposition’

There is something to be said about how the Liberal Party (LP), the political force that has remained ubiquitous ever since the 1986 People Power Movement, has handled its role as part of political opposition to the Rodrigo Duterte administration. The volume of statements coming from the LP-led opposition has not died down, despite the […]
