Do immigrants steal jobs from their host country’s natives?

The common-sense wisdom is that they do, because they work cheap. Take Silicon Valley. They lead the pack whining about a lack of “programming talent”. Their solution to that “challenge” is to (1) open America’s doors to immigrant “talent” and (2) convince girls that coding is a cool activity to engage in. The hope is […]

Why liberals are to blame for the ban on US immigrants and everything else to follow

Just recently, US President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order placing a ban on US immigrants coming from seven Muslim-majority nations. The news spread like wildfire overnight, and airports are on the frontlines resisting protesters. Normal flights are disrupted as even legal immigrants aren’t spared from “extreme vetting” and are thus prevented from landing […]

Americans need to come to terms with their new reality under President Donald Trump

The trouble with Liberals is that they are too open-minded. They are, they themselves insist, “pro-choice”. And this is why liberalism is incompatible with the human condition — becuase human beings suck at coping with an abundance of choice. This is where conservatism resonates — it offers a straight path (in the real sense of […]

Hillary Clinton’s “Delete your account” tweet at the root of her colossal campaign FAIL

This was a year of upsets. The EU crackdown on refugrees, Brexit, the the rise of Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines, then the ascent of Donald Trump to Leader of the Free World confronts the thinking classes and “shocks” the chattering classes. We now hear how Filipinos, in this latest instance, are “shocked” by their […]

It is a vote that Trump supporters wielded against what they feel is unfair imposition on them by others, such as liberals. […]

On The Left and Going Forward: Making sense of the Donald Trump win

I have been paying attention to GRP since before the BSA3 administration. It was here that I began to truly understand what drove Filipino culture – as well as how it derived from the showbiz culture inherited from the Americans. It was highly understandable to me why Filipinos would swarm to Duterte in droves. Like […]

Duterte is turning the Philippines back into a REAL southeast Asian country

Why the sudden interest of the foreign media in the Philippines? It is because they found a bogeyman in its current president, Rodrigo Duterte, to feast upon. Indeed, Duterte is living up to the smear that goes way back to the campaign leading up to the 2016 elections that he is the “Donald Trump of […]

Filipinos abandon The Yellow Narrative and embrace The Duterte Way

Filipinos’ gripes are really quite simple and straightforward. There is no justice. There are no consequences for law breakers. Due process is too slow. Nothing changes. There is no political will to change. The genius in the government of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is hinged upon a simple habit. His government listens to and empathises […]
