Duterte shakes MVP’s hand after months of rants over water deals

Are they just playing nice on the water crisis?

Following months of tirades, President Rodrigo Duterte and businessman Manny Pangilinan play nice in their first public meeting on March 3, 2020. They may look like they’re playing nice on the country’s water crisis but that’s what civil people do.Filipinos can only hope that they would put their acts together.



Senator Imee Marcos calls for ‘fast track construction of water flagship projects’

Senator Imee Marcos initially calls on the government to hasten the construction of water flagship projects. This includes the Kaliwa and Laiban dams. She hopes to make the water agency and two concessionaires accountable for the water shortage. The water rate is very high but the service is not at par, she said. She adds that the public deserves better service than what the two concessionaires render.

Duterte and MVP

President Rodrigo Duterte and businessman Manny V. Pangilinan exchange pleasantries. This is during their first public appearance together on Thursday, March 5. After reading his remarks, President Duterte shakes Pangilinan’s hand as he returns to his seat. The businessman stands up to greet the President. The two had a quick chat during the inspection of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Circumferential Road 3. Senator Bong Go then updates reporters that Duterte invited Pangilinan for a meeting “soon.” Duterte previously rants on the Ayala-led Manila Water and Maynilad upon the start of the water crisis in March 2019. That prompts him to order a review of the firms’ agreements with the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System.

The Japanese People Hail President Duterte’s Quick Thinking to Protect Filipinos from Novel Coronavirus

Novel Coronavirus

Quick Thinking on Travel Bans but Considering the Economic Effects as Well

President Rodrigo Duterte is not in favor of a total travel ban on South Korea. It has at least 1,595 cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), according to reports. Duterte says he cannot implement such a total ban. It risks isolating the Philippines. The country currently prohibits citizens from traveling to South Korea. Although, it excludes Filipinos who are workers, students, and permanent residents there. He also bars travelers from North Gyeongsang province.



Novel Coronavirus is Killing the Old People in Japan

The novel coronavirus kills older people at a very higher rate. Japan has the highest proportion of elderly people in the world. The number of reported cases in the country has steadily climbed to 230, with 11 deaths. The fatalities are mostly among people in their 80s. Globally, nearly 3,000 people have died, with the majority of deaths in China. South Korea and Italy’s recent surges in infections are also happening right now. They have moved quickly to test large numbers of people to treat and isolate the infected from others. This is not the case in Japan. It was also too late for their government to impose travel bans to the One China countries unlike the Philippine President, Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Primitive to Combat a Coronavirus Outbreak

The Filipino leader knows quite well that the national medical industry is too primitive when it comes to the devices, technologies, and facilities needed to contain the coronavirus if an outbreak occurs. Therefore, despite the great economic effect, the President needs to do what he has to do to protect his people. So far. Only 3 cases are confirmed in the country and 1 death that involves a man from Wuhan, China. The repatriates from the Diamond Princess cruise ship from Yokohama were properly quarantined in Clark prior to their release. Kudos, Mr. President!

President Duterte Refuses to Pass the Presidency to Robredo Despite the Uncertainty of His Health

health


By: Elena Grace Flores

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte discloses that he might have cancer and added that he does not know where he stands as the results of recent medical tests have not come yet. Duterte said in a speech in Manila that he underwent an endoscopy and colonoscopy about three weeks ago. His doctor was advised this week to repeat the tests. Both tests aim to diagnose any abnormality in the digestive tract and colon. Despite the uncertainty of his health, he refuses to give hope to Vice President Leni Robredo that she can soon take over his place. He thinks that she is too weak strategy-wise to be a good leader for the Philippines.



YouTube video by TOKHANG TV

[VIDEO]: President Du30 said that VP Leni Robredo is too weak to be the next Philippine leader.


The President’s Health

Duterte has admitted even before that he has Barrett’s Esophagus, a gastroesophageal reflux disease in the stomach. The President has stated that he does not know how he is physically-speaking now. However, he said that in case he has cancer, he will let the public know about it. He does not care if it is stage 4. For sure, he will not prolong his agony both personally and professionally. The president also said that he will not prolong the agony of the top office of the land but to resign is definitely not an option.

Loyalty to the Late President Marcos

This strike against Robredo is not new anymore.  Duterte earlier said he would rather leave the country in the hands of a Marcos than his constitutional successor. He once said, “If I stop now in my crusade against drugs, and if there is no order in this place, and corruption will continue? You’re dead meat. I said you’re better off choosing an alleged dictator in the likes of Marcos. That’s what I suggested.” The late Ferdinand Marcos was accused as a tyrant but many prove the allegations as wrong and were just a black media propaganda against him. His namesake, Ferdinand Marcos is the Protester for the VP post.


Bongbong Marcos as Presidential Successor

Contrary to the media propaganda of Robredo’s camp, Atty. Glenn Chong assures the public that the recent threshold the PET uses for the recount of the VP electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo is 50%. Chong explained that 21,000 votes of Robredo did not pass the Supreme Court standard. As of now, they are set aside first. Therefore, the presumptive Vice President has 21,000 fewer votes currently. This is why in the revision reports, the total number of Robredo’s votes is a lot lower than the total of the election returns printed from the election machine.



Repeating History with Martial Law and Destabilization

According to Armed Forces Chief of Staff, Carlito Galvez Jr., the CPP has organized in at least 10 universities in the Metro for the plot to oust President Duterte. The traces gathered involving the activities of Reyes with the communist group can support this allegation. Galvez is also claiming that the communists intend to drag Duterte into declaring martial law as a political death trap. He compares it to the Plaza Miranda bombing of the 1970s. The authorities contemplate that a more or less similar scenario can happen again as per the nature of the rebels’ history.


VP Electoral Protest Update

Galvez also clarifies that the Liberal Party is not part of the CPP’s “Red October”. However, he adds that the CPP does desire to form a coalition with opposition groups to be able to oust the President. The party might not be officially associated with the communists but many of them especially the yellow-minded can only support the insurgents because of their intention to get rid of Duterte.

Red October is the Start of Poor Months for the Government Detractors with Poverty Mentality

poverty


By: Elena Grace Flores

Bayan Secretary General Renato Reyes Jr. criticizes President Rodrigo Duterte that he is more worried about the Red October reports than inflation. He alleged that his faction is suffering from the poor Ber months starting this month due to the surging prices of commodities. Activists like him dubbed as the Yellows blame the President for what the perceive as anti-poor policies. They cite the tax reform law as.one of the reasons. They seem to have no clue that the economic situation is a world issue.  Gasoline now costs $100 per barrel. All countries in the world face the same issue due to the dwindling sources of gasoline. Reyes proves that people with poverty mentality can only blame others for their misfortunes.

Corrupting the Youth

The Communist Party of the Philippines is planning a “Red October”. According to Armed Forces Chief of Staff, Carlito Galvez Jr., the CPP has organized in at least 10 universities in the Metro for the plot to oust President Duterte. The traces gathered involving the activities of Reyes with the communist group can support this allegation.

Destabilization Efforts

The CPP has been working on the “Red October” plot since September 21 according to Galvez. They started with an “information drive” comparing Duterte’s administration to the alleged abuses during the Marcos regime. He also adds that this is a part of “Oplan Talsik”. The “Oplan Talsik”, is a series of mass mobilizations  of youth and labor sectors. This will continue until December, in line with the 50th founding anniversary of the CPP.


Triggering Martial Law Declaration

Galvez is also claiming that the communists intend to drag Duterte into declaring martial law as a political death trap. He compares it to the Plaza Miranda bombing of the 1970s. The authorities contemplate that a more or less similar scenario can happen again as per the nature of the rebels’ history.



LP Might be Out but Not the Yellows

Galvez also clarifies that the Liberal Party is not part of the CPP’s “Red October”. However, he adds that the CPP does desire to form a coalition with opposition groups to be able to oust the President. The party might not be officially associated with the communists but many of them especially the yellow-minded can only support the insurgents because of their intention to get rid of Duterte.


Poverty Drivers

Senator Francis Pangilinan, however, as the Liberal Party president points out that there is a difference between a desire to merge with other groups and having an actual coalition with the opposition. The statement of Galvez also contradicts the previous statement made by Brig. Gen Antonio Parlade. Parlade claimed that the opposition groups are in connivance with one another to remove Duterte from his presidency.

The President’s EJK Sin Remark can Prove that He Follows the Rule of Law to Discipline People

discipline


By: Elena Grace Flores

Discipline is a necessary trait for progress and the Filipinos sorely need it so. foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano says that Duterte’s actions against drugs ultimately protects the rights of the Filipinos. He believes that we are on the right track and that we are saving the country from becoming a narco-state. This is what he says before the General Assembly of the United Nations. By law, no one can be prosecuted by bluffing that he or she killed someone. The due process of law requires an investigation to gather evidence. Therefore, the critics can investigate Duterte all they want and see if there’s probable cause. Logically speaking, the Filipino leader will not say such a thing if he is guilty of it. Surely, his only sin is EJK. He could have solved the problem quickly if he allows eliminating criminals at once.

YouTube video by GMA News

[VIDEO]: Pres. Duterte: Ang kalasanan ko lang ‘yung mga extrajudicial killings


Discipline is Vital to the Rights of Filipinos

To quote Cayetano, “We may sometimes differ in how we express ourselves, yet this should not be interpreted as turning our backs on the universal declaration on human rights. On the contrary, we are instituting all of these reforms to be able to protect the rights of every single Filipino.” This was Cayetano’s defense for Duterte’s drug war. He says that the administration will prioritize to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens first.

PI Adheres to the UN Stance

The Philippines adheres to the stance of the UN with regards to the protection of rights, according to Cayetano. However, if given a choice between the rights of law-abiding citizens and that of drug lords and criminals, the former’s rights are what we choose to protect.


Admittance or a Challenge to Detractors?

The Malacañang have downplayed Duterte’s supposed admission of his sin for extrajudicial killings. He was just being “playful” as they say. Now Cayetano’s remarks came days after this supposed admission. Furthermore, the Philippine delegation employed the same reasoning to the UN assembly at Geneva.



The Media’s Alternative Facts

Cayetano criticized the media and marked their arguments as “alternative facts”. He claims that they have been sourced from the critics of Duterte. Furthermore, he questions them for using a different definition of extrajudicial killings in the oast administration.


Misled International Communities

With the Universal Periodic review of the UN Human Rights Council in 2017, they summarize the 27 recommendations of UN member-states. They urge the Philippines to immediately stop the killings from the context of this drug war. Instead, conduct thorough investigations. Furthermore, Myanmar and Thailand call the Philippines to provide protection from the threat of drugs while upholding human rights as well as to provide appropriate health measures. Most of these countries can only judge Duterte according to what they read. Take the case of the millions of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh. That should be a priority as far as human rights are concerned.

Duterte-Marcos Alliance Causes Dark Age for the LP with China at their Back

China





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The LP or Liberalism worldwide faces its dark age when Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte side by side with the Marcoses resumes the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ bilateral ties with China. It starts when both Imee and Bongbong Marcos join the Filipino leader’s entourage during his initial Beijing visit. The relationship of both countries flourishes as economic and security partners. Liberal Party Senators panic and lead demonstrations as the majority of Filipinos are amused with Duterte’s brilliance.







Youtube video by; PolitikoTV Channel

[VIDEO]: President Rodrigo Duterte says China won’t allow his removal from office.

President Xi’s Assurance

The assurances of Xi Jinping are very encouraging.’We will not allow you to be taken out from your office. We will not allow the Philippines to go to the dogs’, Duterte narrated President Xi’s words. Senator Antonio Trillanes and other LP Senators express their dismay over this declaration.



Diplomatic Deals

The two leaders met at the Boao Forum for Asia last month. They affirm the diplomatic relationship between Philippines and China amid territorial disputes. Duterte delivers a speech aboard the BRP Davao Del Sur. It docks at Casiguran Bay in Aurora, to lead the send-off for 50 Filipino scientists who will conduct research on the Benham Rise.




Brilliant Strategy for the South China Sea

The Philippines takes diplomatic action over the recent military moves and island building of the Chinese government through friendship. Duterte does not go for the international arbitral ruling invalidating Beijing’s vast claims in the South China Sea just yet. He promises to do so during his term.




The LP Loses its Force

The Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s removal results to Duterte’s dominance in all three branches of the government. On top of that, he is still the popular president of the Filipinos. Black media propaganda also deteriorates as people take their stand on social media. Even American oligarchs cannot defend the LP anymore with China on Duterte and Marcos’ side. Perhaps, even US President Donald Trump also agrees with both leaders’ diplomatic relationship and may follow suit for world peace.

Supreme Court Revisors: The Slim Margin of Bongbong Marcos’ Lead Allows the Digital Cheating Strategy to Succeed

Supreme Court





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The revisors at the Supreme Court said that they saw “many votes of President Rodrigo Duterte that did not go to him. However, their attention is on the result of the manual recount and revision of ballots in the vice presidential election protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo. The President knew this right after the May 2016 election when Pastor Boy Saycon of the Binay Camp first reports to him through the phone the anomalies done by the LP. Saycon’s pronouncement later matches the testimonies of witnesses in the Senate. This is why Du30 whispers to Marcos that he is cheated during their first meeting in Davao.







Youtube video by; NQUIRER.net

[VIDEO]: Duterte tells Sereno: You have to be out of the Supreme Court.

ThePresident was Cheated and He Knows it

The President said it many times to Sereno that he always follow the rule of law. Despite that, the ousted Chief Justice never stops discrediting him. That drives the Filipino leader to deal with her head on. At the present time, revisors of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal of the Supreme Court said that there were votes cast for President Duterte that were not counted in his favor. They randomly check the votes cast for the presidency “to check if there were also discrepancies in the presidential election after discovering discrepancies in the results for the vice presidential election.” President Duterte won the 2016 election with more than 6.6 million votes than those garnered by his closest rival, Mar Roxas.



Justices to Decide to Continue the Recount

The manual recount and revision of votes in the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is now in its seventh week. The results in the recount and revision of ballots in the three provinces would determine if the PET, composed of all Supreme Court justices, would still pursue the protest in 24 more provinces and cities covered by Marcos’ case.




Not Surprising for the Marcos Camp

Lawyer Vic Rodriguez of the Marcos Camp said that the reduction of votes for President Duterte was not a surprise. “We are not surprised by such report because it just confirms what we have been saying all along – that the cheating was widespread that it also affected President Duterte but his lead was insurmountable that all attempts failed,” Rodriguez said.




Big Change in the Supreme Court

The removal of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno from the Supreme Court signals an upcoming big change in the government. Many Filipinos suspect and hope that the declaration of the VP race real winner is next to come. Marcos can be the new Vice President soon. Things may be quiet now because of the gag order but one thing is certain; the Philippines will soon have their elected leaders and much more.

Communist Rebels Undermine Troubles Caused but Concerned of Alleged Marcos and Duterte Human Rights Violations?

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

the National Democratic Front (NDF) is against the return of another Marcos in Malacanang. They issued a statement that says; “Bongbong Marcos’ as Vice President is courting a grave and inevitable disaster for the Filipino nation.”  Oplan Tokhang and the Marcos burial are two of their main reasons for doubting President Rodrigo Duterte’s sincerity in complying to the NDF-government peace talks. Why are these communist insurgents worried about human rights? Are they not the ones giving hardships to the people of Mindanao for the chaos caused by their rebellion?

The Communist Rebels are Anti-Bongbong Marcos

In a Press Release, Rubi del Mundo, NDF-SMR spokesperson made their opinion known that  Bongbong Marcos, son of the late president Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, has the temerity to try to wipe out the real score of his father’s reign.” They are obviously against Marcos’ success in the electoral protest for the Vice Presidency against V.P. Leni Robredo, just like the Liberal Party members. The late Ninoy Aquino was the brain of communist insurgency alliance in the Philippines.




Sison on Human Rights

NDF chief political consultant Jose Maria Sison confirms that Oplan Tokhang and the Marcos burial are among the issues hurting the peace talks because they allegedly violate the signed Comprehensive Agreement on Respect of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL).

War with the Poor

Duterte’s “Oplan Tokhang” is the police operation when they knock on homes of suspected users and pushers to persuade them to surrender. There are reports that government forces abuse the ceasefire with the New People’s Army through this strategy. Sison alleged that the government fails to punish the big-time drug criminals and can only make the poor suffer.

Duterte’s Assurance

President Duterte believes that the rebels are fighting for the rights that they think they are entitled to – but is firm in his pursuing the war on drugs. Not even the U.N. and the Americans can slow him down. What more the communist rebels? However, in the name of peace, the government panel during their meeting in Rome assures the NDF the release of more than 400 political prisoners as petitioned but the judicial process takes time. The Martial Law victims’ compensation and EJK investigations also follow suit.  The government also seeks to sign a bilateral ceasefire agreement that puts in place common rules for the military and the New People’s Army to avoid government forces-rebel troops encounters.

Law-Abiding Citizens are Not Worried of Martial Law – Only the Ones Blocking Bongbong Marcos to Power

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Duterte vows to declare martial law to preserve the country. What is wrong with that? He is just doing his job as the head of the country. The war on drugs, Marcos burial his alliance with Bongbong Marcos are used to create destabilization in the country by his political enemies. They are very concerned for Bongbong Marcos’ installation in the executive office as the Vice President.






Youtube video by; RT
[VIDEO]: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says he could impose martial law if the drug problem in the country becomes “very virulent,” warning that he is prepared to disregard the Supreme Court and Congress.



Martial Law to Preserve the Country

The President is ready to declare martial law – not on the basis of invasion but to preserve the country. External Invasion is one of the conditions in the 1987 Constitution for the chief executive to declare martial law. Sedition rumors through “LeniLeaks” if found to be physically true is a sign of rebellion – but Vice President Leni Robredo and her allies headed by Fil-Am Loida Nicolas Lewis deny this.




Afraid of Bongbong Marcos

Bongbong Marcos is the main reason why Loida Nicolas Lewis calls for the resignation of President Duterte. She is against his alleged intention to pass the presidency to Marcos after winning his electoral protest against Robredo that would make him the new Vice President of the Philippines.

Martial Law and Bongbong Marcos Connection

Critics like Raissa Robles try to implicate Bongbong Marcos to martial law. This is despite the fact that he is not yet in authority during his father’s regime. He may be seen supporting his father’s advocacies – but he cannot be holding legal responsibilities pertaining to its alleged abuses.

Who are Afraid of Martial law

People who are afraid of martial law are the anti-Bongbong Marcos. President Duterte is crucified for supporting Marcos – but his conscience dictates that he is doing the right thing for the nation. Most of his policies are adapted from the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos. He used his wisdom to follow the ones wth positive results and perhaps avoids the ones that did not work if there’s any. That is his prerogative as president because after all, he is the only one who can be liable for the failures of his administration if ever. If he wishes Bongbong Marcos to be the next president then he should have very good reasons for it. Trust does not grow from trees. It’s earned!

Duterte, Binay and Bongbong Marcos Head On Back to the Golden Era

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The government can only do so much. President Rodrigo Duterte may have the political will to make Filipino lives better in his own way, he needs help. This is why even before the elections, the Liberal Party oppositions unite and formed the Binay-Marcos-Duterte alliance. They join hands for the benefit of the Filipino people. Bongbong Marcos is the bearer of their alliance in the near future.





Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: No one can deny the economic growth of the country during Martial Law. It is indeed the golden era of Marcos.



The Ferdinand E. Marcos Platform

The Marcos era is no doubt the golden age of the Philippines. Detractors tried to discredit this using media propaganda but they are counter-acted by real Filipino witnesses through social media. The time has come that the media cannot manipulate society anymore. The Binay-Marcos-Duterte alliance follows the political platform of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos.



Dignified Land Reforms

Giving lands and teaching people how to use it was the strategy of Marcos to aid the government’s initiative in propagating economic progress. This is not just mere actions of disposing lands. The farmers or agricultural entrepreneurs were provided with credit facility and access to tools, processes and training to make sure that their livelihood will be managed well.



The Statistics Don’t Lie

This cannot be denied that the Filipino masses comprised of the urban poor were given a decent life during the Marcos era. The Minimum wage from 7 pesos was increased to 15 pesos. It’s 50% labor pay rise. Inflation which is the enemy of the poor is down from 44% to 7%.

There was no Middle Class before Marcos

Before Marcos, the gap between rich and poor was too wide. Due to his economic projects, professionals, entrepreneurs, small to medium business people emerged composing the so-called middle class who are educated and have stable job or income sources. These are dignified people that Binay nurtured in Makati, Bongbong Marcos in Ilocos and Duterte in Davao initially. Now, they are doing it nationwide.
