Facebook hears the secrets that you keep when you’re talking in your sleep

Facebook is currently in a world of trouble after news about how a chunk of data harvested off it was used by an analytics firm, Cambridge Analytica, to generate insights allegedly used to help current United States President Donald Trump win the elections in 2016. While many observers wonder whether this attention is due to […]

A meeting of liberal minds: Oprah Winfrey for US President, Jover Laurio for “Filipino of the Year”

This is not to say US Queen of Talk Oprah Winfrey is anything like “Filipino of the Year” Jover Laurio. Oprah is a pillar of the planet’s mightiest showbiz industry (amongst its most powerful people, by some accounts) who worked her way to the top the hard way. Laurio, on the other hand, is an […]

It’s time for Trillanes to seek political asylum in the United States to escape Duterte

It might be time for “senator” Antonio Trillanes to seek political asylum in the United States. After all, he sees himself as “persecuted” and the subject of attempts to “silence” him. In the West, that indeed constitutes “political persecution” and is enough grounds to consider providing refuge to the “senator”. But will Trillanes’s case meet […]

Filipinos need to make a choice: Bomb Marawi City to the ground or sustain more military casualties

The battle for Marawi City is degrading into a protracted stalemate between Philippine government troops and Maute terrorists holed up in buildings in the city centre.

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 […]

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 […]

What did the women in the #WomensMarch rallies REALLY want?

Ahhh, the perenial question: What do women want? I hear a lot of my male friends ask this question. It seems we like to spend a lot of time and energy verbalizing our issues and then get upset when our partners contribute to the conversation in their usual infernal “solution mode”. The boys, of course, […]
