Bam Aquino’s call for a ‘Genuine Opposition’ highlights the lack of one in Philippine politics

According to Senator Bam Aquino he will be joining a “coalition slate, which will be made up of people willing to speak out and stand up against Malacanang’s policies that may be damaging to the people”. In a post on his website, Aquino called for a need for a “genuine opposition”… “In 2019, hindi lang […]

Filipinos deserve a more VISIONARY Opposition and not the lazy one they get today

The Philippine Opposition have so far achieved just one thing — make the Philippines look like a failed state to the global community. Is that an achievement? It is — if your sole be-all-end-all goal is to grab back power, that is. To be fair, that is what an Opposition is supposed to be in […]

TRAIN TRAIN TRAIN – Why the Yellows are Speechless (Nganga) about Duterte’s Nation-Building Strategy

It’s a masterpiece of a masterplan in nation building that one could never in one’s wildest dreams ever imagine coming out of a Yellow Cult leader’s pointed head. Yet it only took the basic common sense of a lowly unrefined mayor from the country’s marginalized South to get the country back on its rail tracks […]

Why the State should NOT be Pro-poor for the Philippines to Prosper

Did you ever wonder why our government, constitution and laws are so pro-poor? Well, all you have to do is look at a Yellowtard LP rally, and you’ll find many nuns and clergy people holding placards.

Freedom from Democracy: Is it Time for Duterte to Abolish Congress?

While it gives us the benefit of that cool ecstatic feeling […]

Duterte’s #SONA2016 message: No time for blame games. We’ve got a job to do!

Many would have understood if President Rodrigo Duterte had devoted a big portion of his first State of the Nation Address (SONA) to blaming his predecessor. After all Duterte did acknowledge, just the same, that the Philippines is still in a “mess” and that Filipinos are suffering. But Duterte’s first SONA came across like a […]

It is with courage that we salute Rodrigo Duterte, the Philippines’ new Chief Executive!

If a landslide vote catapulted now-President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to power, that same landslide vote did not influence the composition of Congress which remains utterly dominated by Liberal Party stalwarts. Indeed, amazingly enough, Franklin Drilon is set to keep his seat in the Senate despite being one of the most rabid of President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ […]

Anti-Marcos movements highlight a lack of national vision for the Philippines

We hear a lot about clamours to block the candidacy of vice presidential candidate Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr coming from the alleged ‘victims’ of the rule of his father, the late former President Ferdinand E Marcos. The most recent is one reportedly organised by “a coalition of martial law victims” calling their movement the ‘Campaign […]
