This year’s CBCP Halloween stunt: ‘A Night of Horror during Duterte’s Time’

It is quite laughable the way Inquirer columnist Rina Jimenez-David in her opinion piece today trumpets the role of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in “leading” yet another political stunt (disguised as a religious “mourning” ritual) in the lead up to the Day of the Dead this November. She writes referring to […]

Duterte, The Pacifist, and The Just War Tradition

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse.” — John Stuart Mill President Duterte has been accused of using unnecessary violence, killings, and other atrocities to fight the war against drugs, […]

Inquirer and Akbayan are ruining Philippine international relations

If there is one thing I hate about President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent tirade in which he threatened to cut ties with the European Union and the United Nations is he didn’t include cursing members of Philippine mainstream media and those from the Opposition who invited the so-called foreign delegates to visit the country. It has […]

Rappler dangerously promotes use of illegal drugs

Every so often, Rappler publishes an article that demands a rebuttal. Nothing less than a trashing would do lest people start believing that what the writer is saying is true. We all know Rappler promotes a lot of “liberal” ideas, which they think are “hip” and “cool” and they also think that everyone else should […]

CHR and CBCP’s solution to traffic congestion: Stop killing criminals and multiply like rabbits

Peaceful solutions don’t usually work in the Philippines. Take squatting for example. The land owner kindly asks the squatter to leave (while even dangling some P30K pocket money). The squatter shows the land owner the finger and cries out against the violation of his rights. CHR comes in to remind the land owner that the 1987 […]

Here is why Trillanes is responsible for Sonia Brady’s stroke and Angelo Reyes’s suicide…

If we are to use the logic of the Opposition, we can argue that “senator” Antonio Trillanes caused the stroke suffered by former Ambassador to China Sonia Brady and the suicide of the late Ret. General Angelo Reyes. Here’s why. The Opposition are adamant in their assertion that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is responsible for […]

Those who hate fake news but tolerate Trillanes’s fake accusations are hypocrites

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s critics, particularly members of the Liberal Party and their supporters, hate fake news. They even disseminate a list of web sites that they believe publish fake news. The list includes our very own blogsite proving that what they consider “fake” are publications that they do not agree with. They don’t seem […]

Philippine Opposition mounting ‘distraction campaigns’ to bury important national issues

Overheard on my Twitter timeline: Filipinos are an “angry” people. As such, the landscape of political chatter is fertile ground for the Opposition (specifically the cancer within it, the Yellowtard clique) to mount one distraction campaign after another. Whilst reputable thought leaders tackle the hard-hitting issues — like the drug menace, public transport, public health […]
