Aside from “Fnck you, Marcos!” do anti-Marcos “activists” have anything IMPORTANT to say?

Imperial Manila’s hipsters keep complaining that there was not enough effort to “educate” generations of Filipinos about the alleged “horrors” of “the Martial Law years”. Perhaps this is why it is seen to be an “in” thing amongst a small clique of shool kids to be seen on these anti-Marcos protest rallies of late. The […]

At the People Power Monument: Anti-Marcos protesters have become a laughingstock

You gotta give credit to the anti-Marcos mob. They came back in their thousand-odd force, this time at the “People Power Monument” on EDSA at its intersection with Temple Drive outside Camp Aguinaldo today. Amongst those leading the charge (so they claim) are representatives of the “Big Three” elite Philippine schools, the University of the […]

Why ousting Duterte will be disastrous for the Philippines

What’s up with all this talk about ousting sitting Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte? That’s a no-brainer. There are certain people and parties so hungry for power that the campaign to seize Malacanang had not ended in May 2016. So it is hardly surprising that, rather than work with the incumbent Duterte administration, the Opposition seek […]

Majority of Filipinos approve of Duterte’s War on Drugs

Here’s the elephant in the room the Yellow Camp seems to be ignoring. For all the complaining and criticism they lob onto the government of President Rodrigo Duterte, none of them seem to be considering that much of what makes up the challenges being faced by the newborn administration today are problems either created or […]

Filipinos should junk the 1986 People Power narrative in order to TRULY progress

It’s time Filipinos pause, step back, take stock, and ask: What is really going on here? If one would attempt to answer that question using the common frame of mind with which Filipinos have coocooned themselves within, the responses would be unsurprising, quite trite, and peppered with certain key words prevalent in mainstream discourse today: […]

Marcos’s burial at the LNMB proves a point: His ouster in 1986 was against the law

There are people wondering why there is such a strong push to have the remains of former President Ferdinand Marcos interred at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB). Perhaps these people need to approach that question from the perspective of the “other side”. If you were one of the Marcoses, wouldn’t you want former President […]

Marcos burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani turns EDSA People Power into a joke!

It’s in the bag. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made good his campaign promise and has ordered the Philippine military to prepare the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani. This means not only is the family’s 27-year-old request going to be granted, Marcos Sr will be buried with full […]

COMELEC SOCE Debacle: ‘Sovereign will of the people’ is NOT a valid argument @commrguanzon!

There is something fundamentally wrong about Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon’s defense of the decision of the COMELEC en banc to bend election rules to accomodate the Liberal Party’s late submission of its Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCE). According to COMELEC rules, all candidates and their nominating parties had until the 8th […]
