A simple social grace extended by Duterte to Kian’s parents made all the difference

The irony that escapes Yellowtards is that they now see themselves as “victims” of a system they supposedly “fought” for. If only somebody had warned them back in their golden years that spanned the 1980s through the 1990s and the 2000s: Be careful what you wish for. Indeed, everything they are now tearing their hair […]

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 […]

Schadenfreude of the Elites: People who want Duterte to fail

Schadenfreude: Substantiv, feminin – boshafte Freude über das Missgeschick, Unglück eines andern. (Translation: Noun, feminine – malicious pleasure over the misfortune, mishap of someone else.)* An elite class that is free to operate without limits – whether limits imposed by the rule of law or fear of the responses from those harmed by their behavior […]

Are we just gonna leave the Opposition to the Yellowtards to run?

I support the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. Finally, the Philippines has a truly badass leader — not another one of those prayerful pa-pious effect bleeding-heart pa-liberal idiots who had, over the last couple of decades, turned the Philippines into an emotard society of whiney spoiled brats tapping out their tantrums on their iPads everyday. […]

The Philippines is worse off 30 years after the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution

I’m tired of reading stories from old farts about the so-called “people power” revolution that transpired at EDSA in 1986. These old-timers hold a tradition to relive the tale over and over and this year is no different as Filipinos set out to mark the 30th anniversary of the event. The stories seem to be […]

We Should ‘Move On’ From The Supposed ‘Legacy’ Of The Aquino Family

The Aquino family and, by extension, the LP have always been adamant about how the Aquinos changed the country for the better. However, once one looks past all the propaganda and media support, one will be forced to question the veracity of their claims. Truth be told, over the years, we are spoonfed with silly […]

Battle of The Filipino Clans

New Year is just around the corner. To most this could be a new hope, new dreams & a new beginning. For the Philippines, 2016 marks the year to vote for a new leader who they see fit to run the country. Will 2016 be the year Philippines can finally break free from it’s corrupt […]

Why the Current Philippine Republic Needs to Die

When President Corazon Aquino established the Fifth Philippine Republic in 1987, she set forth a new constitution that in theory would eliminate the “excesses” of previous administrations. Foremost among these was the “Martial Law” clause that, in the event that a seated President would declare it, would allow it to pass through Congress first; Post-Marcos, this was […]
