Yellow lives matter, but Duterte-styled Iron-Fisted Visionaries (IFVs) matter more

The Yellows are struggling to survive these days, and the fact they need to face is the enormous capital flight that’s taking place in the form of lost market share. Much of the attention, clout and following they used to enjoy and thought to be their birthright have steadily dwindled away like the vital signs […]

The Aquinos are traitors: Time to remove their faces from the 500 peso bill

As the call to change the name of our premier international gateway back to “Manila International Airport” gains steam with another high-profile movement, some other steps still await implementation in our mopping-up operations to clear our system of putrid phlegm-colored Yellow-LP crap. The yellow-colored 500 peso bill still needs cleaning up. Congress should pass a […]

The REAL reason Marcos and Martial Law issues will remain unresolved

A discussion on Marcos and the Martial Law years inevitably results in someone making a comparison between Marcos and World War II-era Nazi Germany. Oftentimes, parallels are drawn, such as the use of propaganda, the culpability for hundreds of thousands who lost their lives, etc. Perhaps, most strikingly, the two are often put side by […]

Senator Bongbong Marcos was the crowd favorite at the Vice Presidential Debates #PiliPinasDebates2016

The one and only Vice Presidential Debates hosted by CNN Philippines became mostly about Senator Bongbong Marcos. If not for Marcos Jr, the debates would have been boring. It seems most people just want to hear from him and what he has to say. Well, except of course for the hecklers who kept interrupting him […]

Kidapawan ‘massacre’: Aquino government falls victim to Victim Mentality Activism

There is an important lesson in the alleged “massacre” of hungry farmers in Kidapawan, North Cotabato during an allegedly “violent” dispersal of a protest rally there. The lesson is that it is easy for a sitting president to be blamed for “atrocities” allegedly committed by the police and the military. Why is this an important […]

Dynasty activism: Anti-Marcos ‘activists’ disqualify politicians on the basis of their bloodlines!

Look no further than the venerable Fidel Ramos — former Philippine president and Army general extraordinaire. Today, nobody seems to remember him as one of the key implementors of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos’s allegedly atrocious Martial Law regime. Why have people chosen to overlook Ramos’s past as a Martial Law chieftain? Simple. Because after […]

Rodrigo Duterte’s promise to Filipinos in his bid for the presidency

The return of former Davao City mayor Rodrigo Duterte to the Philippines’ 2016 presidential election race says a lot about how little of a foothold real “democracy” has made in Philippine society. Democracy is not just about “freedom” and “elections”. It is also about justice and discipline. Duterte’s main value proposition to Filipino voters addresses […]

Let’s Change what #NeverAgain Means

Seems that #NeverAgain is being spread as a much-overused and tired propaganda buzzword. It’s used to make people believe martial law will be restored once Bongbong Marcos gets elected into a higher position. Really, GRP Webmaster Benign0 is right: it will never come back even if Marcos comes to power. It’s actually being used for […]
