Could the Philippine Daily Inquirer be charged for inciting sedition?

See what I just did here? That is the same thing the Inquirer is doing in its 1st October 2016 front page. “Heil Digong?” is splashed in big bold print. But read the actual article and you will find the small clarification on the matter (italics mine for emphasis): “Duterte appeared to liken himself to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler…” The front page also included a photo, evidently unrelated to the actual event where the supposedly offensive likening was made. The photo depicting Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and what seem to be members of the military doing the Duterte fist salute was clearly meant to create a connection with the Nazi salute in readers’ minds.


So is Duterte to the Philippines as Hitler was to Nazi Germany? The more interesting question is, is the Inquirer guilty of sedition on account of the way it laid out its Saturday front page? It could be argued that the Inquirer could be guilty of inciting sedition. According to Article 142 of the Philippines’ Revised Penal Code…

The penalty of prision correctional in its maximum period and a fine not exceeding 2,000 pesos shall be imposed upon any person who, without taking any direct part in the crime of sedition, should incite others to the accomplishment of any of the acts which constitute sedition, by means of speeches, proclamations, writings, emblems, cartoons, banners, or other representations tending to the same end, or upon any person or persons who shall utter seditious words or speeches, write, publish, or circulate scurrilous libels against the Republic of the Philippines or any of the duly constituted authorities thereof, or which tend to disturb or obstruct any lawful officer in executing the functions of his office, or which tend to instigate others to cabal and meet together for unlawful purposes, or which suggest or incite people against the lawful authorities or to disturb the peace of the community, the safety and order of the Government, or who shall knowingly conceal such evil practices.

Being a newspaper, the Inquirer should be reporting facts. There seems to be no fact in its Saturday front page. What it does have is a mere question seemingly meant to incite a certain sentiment in its readers for the current administration. Suffice to say, there is lots of debate on whether or not Duterte really “likened” himself to the Führer. A commenter on Get Real Post, for his part, wrote that he is quite certain that Duterte did not say anything wrong.

By the same token, perhaps finding the editors of the Inquirer guilty of inciting sedition under Philippine Law may be a long shot. But a headline such as what I used above could, in the same way, have the effect of convincing our readers that the Inquirer actually is doing just that.

Tit for tat, right?

Trouble is Get Real Post ain’t a newspaper. Our writers aren’t journalists. And we never claim to be anything more than a bunch of Netizens begging to differ in opinion. We earn our readers’ trust on the back of the skill we apply to our work. That’s on us — and it is on us day in and day out as we pump out content.

The Inquirer, on the other hand, insists that it is a newspaper. It also claims that its writers are “journalists”. In fairness to them, that is their prerogative — to plead credentials when their integrity is challenged. However, to be a newspaper and to be a journalist makes one subject to certain standards. Clearly, the Inquirer, in its Saturday, the 1st of October 2016, edition did not meet those standards. In so doing, it is now up to our readers to decide: Is the Inquirer guilty of sedition?

  1. Dear DOJ Secretary Aguirre, please sue & investigate Inquirer for their sedition act against our president. I have a feeling that Inquirer is controlled by the Liberal Party & that political party is a mastermind of a coup plot against President Digong.

    1. But if President Duterte didn’t mention anything about Hitler then all of this could have been avoided. Its like giving your enemies weapons to strike against you. And those remarks by Duterte are not even relevant to issue on illegal drugs.

      1. If nobody called him as the cousin of Hitler? This should be avoided? Who mentioned the name Hitler in the first place? Duterte? Or the critics?

        1. If someone really called him cousin of Hitler I didn’t even know it which means it was not given importance in the news until the President made mention of Hitler. Naturally anything that Duterte says will be given prominence in the media. He should just have ignored it or let his media people answer it but NOT him. Am sure if he didn’t mention Hitler there would have been no adverse reactions, local or foreign. And his detractors could not have used it to attack him.

  2. Inquirer is nothing else than a tabloid newspaper in broadsheet form. Sue Inquirer for what it’s worth.

    Also goes the same for other bias media, written and otherwise.

  3. The Phil Daily Inquirer like most print media, if not all, is fighting for its own survival. Only very few people now a days buy newspapers. I used to buy all newspapers myself, but not anymore. I get my news from the internet. So, PDI “journalists” enjoy your last remaining days..make money any way you can, soon, you will just be “history”..sooner than you expect because of your own undoing.

      1. @NoToFaggotry:

        As expected from a Yellowtard – all personal attacks and no substance.

        Set your priorities for once, faggot. 🙂

      2. Magtagalog, magbisaya or mag english. He will still be misunderstood. And I don’t think that’s the main problem. The main problem is the source of problem (critics who called him as the cousin of Hitler )

      3. own doing; own undoing…. hayaan na natin…. para lang ung NAKANG (nakang)mo sir, at nalang …. naintindihan nmin ung ibig mong sabihin…. ang importante ay the message or view one wishes to impart….

  4. hitler and president du30 are two different personality. hitler against jewish nationals, and du30 against crimes. how could they compare the two as one? the daily inquirer just want to know how much more yellow supporters are there. then, they might call for a revolt against president du30. whatever they say about president du30 people won’t believed they want a change, so, HEIL DIGONG!

    1. Yeah, we should consider all yellow supporters as drug syndicate symphatizers. We need to eradicate them by gassing and combustion.

  5. Wow, kailan ka pa naging abogado Benigno? Wala ng sedition sa Pilipinas tang*** ka! Hahahahaha. Ngayon mo lang nalaman yan ‘no? Aral ka kasi hindi puro satsat ka diyan ina mo. Hahahaha

    1. Haha. Sedition is still existing under our laws. Are you one of those people who think that using drugs isn’t a crime? Ikaw dapat ang mag-aral. The Revised Penal Code has been in continuous use since 1935. And I need to remind you of Article 3 of the New Civil Code which states that:

      “Art. 3. Ignorance of the law excuses no one from compliance therewith.”

      Clearly, our legal system does not limit knowledge of the law to lawyers alone. It is for all of us to know. I advise you to cure your ignorance.

        1. @NoToRevisionism

          Hahaha tangina mo.. Bobo ka, taga ateneo bobo..

          Walang alam kundi martial law.. Mga buset..

        2. Sedition Law of 1901 or Act No. 292, prohibited any Filipino from advocating Philippine independence or its separation from the United States. Enacted by the Philippine Commission headed by William Howard Taft, on November 4, 1901, the Sedition Law of 1901 declared unlawful any peaceful or overt means such as speech, printing, publication and circulation of any material that encourages the Filipinos to fight against the American colonial rule in the Philippines. This law imposed death penalty or a long imprisonment on many Filipino nationalist leaders. A number of plays written by Filipinos during this period were classified as “seditious plays”. Among them are Hindi Aco Patay written by Juan Matapang Cruz, Tanikalang Guinto by Juan Abad, and Kahapon, Ngayon at Bukas by Aurelio Tolentino. The authors, actors and spectators of these “seditious plays” were arrested and imprisoned by the Americans

        3. Sedisyon Batas ng 1901 o Act No. 292, ipinagbabawal ang anumang mga Pilipino mula sa nagsusulong ng Philippine pagsasarili o paghihiwalay nito mula sa Estados Unidos. Pinagtibay ng mga Philippine Commission buhok sa pamamagitan ng William Howard Taft, sa Nobyembre 4, 1901, ang Batas sa sedisyon ng 1901 ipinahayag labag sa batas ang anumang mapayapang o pantao paraan tulad ng mga salita, pag-print, publikasyon at sirkulasyon ng anumang materyal na humihikayat sa mga Pilipino upang labanan laban sa mga Amerikanong kolonyal na panuntunan sa Pilipinas. Ang batas na ipinataw parusang kamatayan o ng mahabang pagkabilanggo sa maraming Pilipino makabayan lider. Ang isang bilang ng mga pag-play nakasulat sa pamamagitan ng mga Pilipino sa panahong ito ay inuri bilang “labag sa bayan mga pag-play”. Kabilang sa mga ito ay Hindi Aco Patay na isinulat ng mga Juan Matapang Cruz, Tanikalang Guinto sa pamamagitan ng Juan Abad, at Kahapon, Ngayon Bukas sa pamamagitan ng Aurelio Tolentino. Ang mga may-akda, mga aktor at tagapanood sa mga “labag sa bayan mga pag-play” ay inaresto at ibinilanggo sa pamamagitan ng mga Amerikano.

        4. @Mench. Repealed na ang Sedition Law of 1901. Ipinalit na ng Revised Penal Code (Act. No. 3815).

    2. @NoToFaggotry:

      The very reason you’re saying those things is because you’re an actual TROLL. What do I expect from someone who had squatter mentality?

      GTFO because this site is not for immature faggots like yourself.

    3. Hoy inutil na nangangamatis ang pwet. Hindi ako piloto at hindi ako marunong magpalipad ng tunay na eroplano pero may mga alam pa rin ako tungkol sa mundo ng aviation mula sa pagiging maaliw ko sa industriyang iyan. Kaya ano ngayon kung hindi abogado si benign0? Wala syang karapatan na banggitin iyang batas para malaman kung ano ang obvious? Kumain ka nga ng sabon tanga.

    1. Sorry if I have to reply to you once again, it can’t be helped since you are everywhere. Anyway, the reasons stated why we “kiss Chinese ass” in that article are:

      China derives its power over sad nations such as ours from three key capabilities:
      (1) The capability to manufacture what we want on the cheap.
      (2) The capability to kick our asses if we do not do what they want us to do.
      (3) The capability to buy our exports.

      I don’t think things have changed. We still kiss Chinese ass.

    2. Honestly, fag, all you have is personal attacks and no substance.

      Is that what Yellowtards are? I’m serious…

    3. The China–Philippines relations (Chinese: 中菲关系; pinyin: Zhōng fēi guānxì; Filipino: Ugnayang Tsina at Pilipinas) refers to the bilateral relations between the China and the Philippines. Relations between the two countries gradually improved over the years since the initiative of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. However, relations between the two countries have suffered due to the worsening South China Sea dispute.

      Several major bilateral agreements were signed between the two countries over the years, such as: Joint Trade Agreement (1975); Scientific and Technological Cooperation Agreement (1978); Postal Agreement (1978); Air Services Agreement (1979); Visiting Forces Agreement (1999); Cultural Agreement (1979); Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (1992); Agreement on Agricultural Cooperation (1999); Tax Agreement (1999); and Treaty on Mutual Judicial Assistance on Criminal Matters (2000). In May 2000, on the eve of the 25th anniversary of their diplomatic relations, the two countries signed a Joint Statement defining the framework of bilateral relations in the 21st century. Bilateral relations between the Philippines and China have significantly progressed in recent years. The growing bilateral relations were highlighted by the state visit to China of Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on 29–31 October 2001. During the visit, President Arroyo held bilateral talks with top Chinese leaders, namely President Jiang Zemin, NPC Chairman Li Peng, and Premier Zhu Rongji. President Arroyo also attended the 9th APEC Economic Leaders Meeting held in Shanghai on October 20–21, 2001, where she also had bilateral talks with President Jiang. During President Arroyo’s visit, eight important bilateral agreements were signed.

      A 2014 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center showed 93% of Filipinos were concerned that territorial disputes between China and neighbouring countries could lead to a military conflict.[1]

    4. Prior to the 1970s, the Philippines government maintained a close relationship with the Kuomintang-ruled Taiwan (Republic of China), and saw China (People’s Republic of China) as a security threat.[2] It began considering normalizing relations with China at the start of the 1970s; the two countries established diplomatic relations on 9 June 1975 with the signing of the Joint Communiqué by leaders of the two countries. Over the 34 years, China–Philippines relations in general have attained a smooth development, and also remarkable achievements in all areas of bilateral cooperation. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations, there has been frequent exchange of high-level visits between China and the Philippines. Philippine Presidents Marcos (June 1975), Corazon Aquino (April 1988), Ramos (April 1993), Estrada (May 2000), Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (November 2001 and September 2004), and Benigno Aquino III (August–September 2011) have visited China. Premier Li Peng (December 1990), Chairman of the Standing Committee of the 8th National People’s Congress Mr. Qiao Shi (August 1993), President Jiang Zemin (November 1996), Premier Zhu Rongji (November 1999), Chairman of the Standing Committee of the 9th National People’s Congress Mr. Li Peng (September 2002), Chairman of the Standing Committee of the 10th National People’s Congress Mr. Wu Bangguo (August 2003), President Hu Jintao (April 2005) and Premier Wen Jiabao (January 2007) visited the Philippines. During President Jiang Zemin’s state visit to the Philippines in 1996, leaders of the two countries agreed to establish a cooperative relationship based on good-neighborliness and mutual trust towards the 21st century, and reached important consensus and understanding of “Shelving disputes and going in for joint development” on the issue of South China Sea. In 2000, China and the Philippines signed the “Joint Statement Between China and the Philippines on the Framework of Bilateral Cooperation in the Twenty-First Century”, which confirmed that the two sides will establish a long-term and stable relationship on the basis of good neighborliness, cooperation, mutual trust and benefit. During President Hu Jintao’s state visit to the Philippines in 2005, both countries are determined to establish the strategic and cooperative relations that aim at the peace and development. During Premier Wen Jiabao’s official visit to the Philippines in January 2007, both sides issued a joint statement, reaffirming the commitment of taking further steps to deepen the strategic and cooperative relationship for peace and development between the two countries.

      In April 2007 President Arroyo attended the annual meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia. In June 2007 she visited Chengdu and Chongqing, and in October, she attended Shanghai Special Olympics and made a side trip to Yantai, Shandong Province. In January 2008, Speaker of the Philippine House of Representatives De Venecia visited China. In August, President Arroyo attended the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games and made a side trip to Chengdu. In October Arroyo attended the Asia-Europe Summit Meeting in China and made a side trip to Wuhan and Hangzhou. Speaker of the Philippine House of Representatives Nograles went to Nanning for the 5th China-ASEAN Expo and paid a visit to Kunming and Xiamen. Vice President De Castro attended the 9th China Western International Exposition in Chengdu. In November De Castro attended the 4th World Cities Forum in Nanjing and visited Anhui and Shanghai. In December, President Arroyo went to Hong Kong to attend the Clinton Global Initiative Forum- Asia Meeting. China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines set up a consultation mechanism in 1991, and 15 rounds of diplomatic consultations have been held since then. Apart from reciprocal establishment of Embassies, China has a consulate general in Cebu, and established a consulate office in Laoag in April 2007. The Philippines have consulate generals in Xiamen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Chongqing, Chengdu and Hong Kong.

    5. What’s the matter twatenean? Are you still insisting that Uncle Sam will still help us against china? Well ding dong! USA’s trillion $’s of loan from china says hi!

    1. @ Pro Pinoy Website Blogger, G. Nuguid alyas “gnogid”:

      You are guilty of sedition, because you are pretending to be a legitimate blogger. In truth, you are a YellowTard, paid by Aquino and Mar Roxas !

        1. @ Pro Pinoy’s Cocoy alyas “David:

          You are the “tsu tsu wa” of G. Nuguid…Your name in the Pro Pinoy Website is : Cocoy. Now that website is closed. Both of you came here at GRP. Hoping you can convince , GRP readers you are not YellowTards. GRP Blog readers are very much wiser, than the Pro Pinoy Website readers.

          Anyway, there were only few readers in your Pro Pinoy Website…this is the reason they closed it ! “Linalangaw ang Website nila !”

      1. Ghostrider Zamboanga City,
        The Inquirer is clear guilty, because you can not put Our President Rodrigo Duterte to the same Image then the Nazi Dictator
        Adolf Hitler !
        Because Our President is cleaning only our Country from this most Criminal Family Cartel, this Imagine Drug Syndicate, but he’s go not in any other Country’s to kill Millions of People.
        Clear Guilty !!! No Sedition, Bitay !!!
        Together with the Goldbar Steelers, othervice the Syndicate can never be stopped. !!!
        Ghostrider Zamboanga City

  6. Forget that sedition charges…The Inquirer Magazine is one of those Propaganda Media Machine of the Conjuangco Aquino political Machine.

    They will demonize the political enemies of the Cojuangco Aquino Axis of Evil. Same as the ABS CBN TV network…or other media networks …

    These Media networks are already obsolete, in this Age of Information Technology.

    If you are an ignorant person, who have not used any : computer, IPOD, IPAD or ANDROID. then, your will swallow the propaganda of these evil politicians.

    Luckily, the millennials are now wiser,and more equipped to see the truth, than the previous generation, like the ‘Baby Boomers”…

  7. I wonder how this will look like.

    A newspaper sentenced to a jail term and having to pay P2000. I am sure PDI will go bankrupt next.

  8. Hmmm the Enquirer News Magazine has been long time gone from my favorite read list years ago…and now I know why ….i don’t have to explain why but I just lost interest …yes it is like a tabloid !

  9. Who cares what news/headlines the Inquirer writes? The last time I heard, the newspapers are making Sari-sari store owners handy. Pambalot nalang yan ng tuyo ngayon.

  10. “Journalists” with an agenda, and a proposition to peddle along the masses. This is nothing new. It is called Yellow journalism (nothing to do with the Liberal Party official colors of course), but this form of journalism was pioneered by the likes of William Randolph Hearst (the man who ran Hearst Publications and who produced a newspaper back then during the Spanish-American War that drummed up the war fever and incited Americans to do just that: initiate and conduct war against the Spanish)…

    When the supposed “watchdogs of society” incite the populace to rebel and conduct black propaganda against the current leadership, aren’t they the ones responsible for destroying the policies being espoused by the current administration which is supposedly geared for the welfare of the entire nation? The Philippine Daily Inquirer is treading some dangerous lines here… and one that may come to a head with the very government itself some time soon.

    They’ll soon discover that there is a limit to these insinuations that they continue to broadcast via their vast publication machine. And they’ll be screaming blood for the supposed end of “free speech” when government cracks down on them. Something that government won’t tolerate anymore. And they’ll find themselves on a short leash. Keep treading that line Inquirer, you’re about to throw yourselves off a cliff.

    1. To a political partisan, the suspicion that some journalists have an agenda is strong. But the truth of the matter is ALL journalists have an ‘agenda’. Now how such ‘agenda’ will affect your thinking will defend on your own ‘agenda’. Next is how you will conduct yourself in terms of reacting favorably or otherwise to the ‘agenda’. ????

      In short, calm down people, it’s normal. ????

      1. @ Pro Pinoy blogger G. Nuguid alyas “gnogid:

        You have a bad agenda…that is, to promote , “YellowTardism” in this GRP website. You defend these corrupt people, like: Aquino, Mar Roxas, De Lima, etc…

        You spin blogs, at your advantage. You troll bloggers in this GRP website. I am sure you are paid by Aquino with my taxes !

  11. Local Failipino media relate giving to reciprocity. They expect things to be expressed in a way they can understand, which is usually their own.

  12. I don’t know how we can seriously connect a campaign sign or symbol (fist) to a Nazi salute and succeed in pushing for a seditious act. It’s obvious the picture was put there to emphasize the title (Heil) and capture what the idea of the story was which is Duterte making an analogy about him and Hitler.

    The front page picture of Duterte making a fist symbol was done for photo-ops at some point and was merely linked on the Hitler controversy. It would take a lot of twisting to convince that a sedition case is warranted merely based on a photo of the president himself doing something that does nor really pose a threat to anyone? It’s also the president and not an enemy of the state that is doing ‘inciting’ if there was one.

    I think there is a mix up there or an over-reaction.

  13. Binondo, the oldest chinatown in the world and an important business center in Manila
    Bilateral trade volume in 2007 was 30.62 billion USD. From January to October 2008, bilateral trade volume reached 25.3 billion USD, an increase of 1.4% as compared with the same period last year. By the end of September 2008, the actually utilized value of accumulative investment from the Philippines to China reached 2.5 billion USD. China’s transformation into a major economic power in the 21st century has led to an increase of foreign investments in the bamboo network, a network of overseas Chinese businesses operating in the markets of Southeast Asia that share common family and cultural ties.[3][4]

    In 1999, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and the Department of Agriculture of the Philippines signed the Agreement on Strengthening Cooperation in Agriculture and Related Fields. In 2000, relevant government agencies signed an agreement whereby China offers the Philippines 100 million USD credit facility. In March 2003, China’s aid project the China-Philippines Agricultural Technology Center was completed. With its successful trial planting in the Philippines, China’s hybrid rice and corn have been growing over large areas in the country. In 2004, both sides signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Fisheries Cooperation. In January 2007, Chinese and Philippine Ministries of Agriculture signed Memorandum of Understanding on Broadening and Deepening Agriculture and Fisheries Cooperation.

    In August 2003, the two countries signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Constructing the Northern Luzon Railway Project. In April 2005, the two countries signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in the field of Infrastructure between the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China and the Department of Trade and Industry of the Republic of the Philippines.

  14. SEDITION ? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT….it would be more like suppression of the ‘FREEDOM OF THE PRESS’. To suggest and then implement such a policy would just prove that Duterte is aiming for the supression of the Pinoy’s CIVIL (NOT HUMAN) RIGHTS.

    The Davao Death Squads, murdering Filipino’s allegedly involved in street level drug dealing without ‘DUE PROCESS’ of the law. LOL, This is just the begining….it just may very well be that Duterte’s aim is to take away the ‘CIVIL(not HUMAN) RIGHTS’ the Philippine Constitution guarantees ALL citizens,eh?

    The removal of the Presss Freedoms will be a disaster for Filipino’s, and yet, after losing their ‘DUE PROCESS’ CIVIL RIGHTS under Duterte’s 1ST 30 days in office, Fiipino’s are apparently cheering wildly as they watch their ‘FREEDOMS’ get flushed down the toilet.

    Duterte could never ask for a more willing bunch of idiots to govern.

    1. Those people doing the killing are rogue cops and drug lords trying to destroy evidence. There is no nationwide DDS. They are only doing killing their underlings now because Duterte is rocking the boat, so to speak.

      Besides, the author admitted that a case for sedition is already a long shot.

      1. @DICK, Lol, look DICK THE MURDERS are being committed by all citizens that have big enough balls to do so. I did not say there was a ‘NATIONWIDE’ DDS’ , but there could be and no one would be the wiser.

      2. @ DICK , You have NOTHING AS USUAL in terms of elucidating a comeback. Duterte openly asked filipino’s to kill fellow filipino’s and offered as a reward, a worthless medal. LOL, even paid HITMEN can make p50,000 TO MURDER SOMEONE. and Duterte wants Filipino’s TO MURDER each other for FREE, THE CHEEP SCUMBAG !

        1. Another ignoramus. Peter Wallace says it better when he analyzed on Duterte’s mannerisms, “What he says is not what he’s really thinking.” He’s defended that Duterte’s passionate unfiltered criticisms aren’t necessarily declarations of policy and if it’s officially in place, it would find its way on institutional level, and so far, it hasn’t come to that.

  15. Frankly, I have not read the Inquirer for a very long time since I work overseas. I recall that it had a tendency to sensationalize stories. But I was really surprised when I saw that front page and thought that they have sunk so low as a newspaper. Lets be clear that they exist to make money, and not for noble reasons of truth and journalism. I understand that “shocking” headlines bring in the money. However, the medium holds a responsibility of representing news in an unbiased fashion. Leave the opinion in the editorial sections.

    How to stop this “newspaper”? Buy one. Look at all the advertisements. Write to the companies, telling them that you will stop patronizing their product or service unless they sever ties with the Inquirer. If a few do this, they just might listen. Hit them where it hurts – cut off the advertisement money.

      I think that would be setting a bad precedent. ????

  16. Normal considerations for a free and critical press won’t move you guys, so let’s try another tack:

    I remember when GRP all but wanted Noynoy to step down at various points during his administration. You’re still here.

    The Inquirer’s headline was odiously biased, but please don’t take the high road when you’re hardly fit for it.

  17. Newspapers have also the right to state the pulse or what do the people think of a certain situation and the “Heil Digong” front page is not a form of sedition, but it should not be on the front page.

  18. i am in favor of it. that kind of irresponsible journalism just to someone else in the office of the president should be held liable. to you philippine daily inquirer i suggest to go to middle east and learn from our brother what responsible journalism is. you’re not uniting the people but dividing it. kaya para sa nyo isang malaking putang ina nyo at fuck you lalo sa mga boss nyo!

  19. Inquirer was the promoter of unbridled free enterprise, the tool of globalization 1986. Russia is the biggest country on Earth to suffer the scourge of globalization. China outwitted the globalists by instituting strong government control yet allowing American big business to profit no end.

    We expect Inquirer to destabilize anti-globalist national leaders or pressure them
    to compromise. That is obviously the role of Inquirer.

    Why was Erap ousted in the first place? Because there was a GMA too willing to conform to US ugly big business concerns and rapacious foreign policy.

    Our hope of peace and order in the country is a Trump who would not be pressured to compromise with the globalists.
