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 […]

Inequality is what makes the world an interesting place to be human

That meme where feminists in other countries are shown dressed in military gear with guns locked and loaded looking really badass while American feminists are shown looking all hip, hedonistic, self-indugent and, well, millennial. Priceless. Open this week’s issue of TIME and get a load of how many pages were devoted to that Women’s March […]

Are those who remain silent about Donald Trump’s policies being silence-shamed by the Liberals?

It has become quite obvious (but not to some “thought leaders”) by now that the Filipino public holds Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to standards different to what mainstream media and the cliques of “socially-aware” liberals put up. Despite months of harping about “human rights”, “civil liberties”, and all the other trendy stuff Liberals love, hardly […]

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 […]

Trump Win Highlights Failure of Bratty Conyo Idealism

A lot of my colleagues already mentioned that the vote for Donald Trump is more of a troll or contrarian vote. It is not a vote for something, but a vote against something. It is a vote that Trump supporters wielded against what they feel is unfair imposition on them by others, such as liberals. […]
