Enrile: Blame the Resistance, Oligarchs on Du30’s Partnership with China

China





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Like the late President Ferdinand Marcos, Du30 always seek closer ties with China. He just met with Chinese President Xi Jinping for a forum discussing business and other cooperation matters where he announces the country’s partnership with the Chinese people. This is despite the resistance of the opposition and the oligarchs due to the South China Sea dispute. However, the Filipino leader found an ally in the former Senator Juan Ponce Enrile. He agrees with the President’s strategy of befriending China. If Marcos’ detractors did not resist his Bataan Nuclear Power plant project previously, Philippines can give a finger to the latter, he said. Therefore, blame the resistance that stops the progress of the country. Not the President, he added. One more thing, befriending North Korea’s ally makes Filipinos safe from any nuclear war threat.

[VIDEO]: Isiniwalat ni Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile na plano ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos na bumuo ng nuclear weapon. Aniya, Isa raw ito sa top secret ni Macoy noon. Iginiit pa ng dating senador na kung natuloy lang daw sana ang proyektong iyon, malamang magdadalawang isip ang China na i-bully ang bansa kaugnay sa West Philippine Sea. Ulat hatid ni Martin Andanar.

Filipino-Chinese Joint Venture

In March 2017, Philippine and Chinese officials sign the Six-Year Development Program (SYDP) for trade and economic cooperation. This is along with other agreements for two major infrastructure projects in the Visayas and Mindanao, under the “Build, Build, Build” program. They are also looking into possible preliminary studies for the Davao Expressway, and bridges connecting Panay, Guimaras, and Negros islands. China now reviews loan applications for infrastructure priority projects. This is for the $53.6-million Chico River Pump Irrigation Project in Cagayan and Kalinga provinces, the $374-million New Centennial Water Source-Kaliwa Dam Project in Quezon province, and the $3.01-billion south line of the North-South Railway.




Waiting for the Right Time

The South China Sea is one of the most disputed regions in the world. China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines have overlapping claims there. China has built artificial islands on the Paracel and Spratly island groups as part of its nine-dash line ownership claim in the area. Du30 said he might bring up the issue of the West Philippine Sea with Xi. But it should not intrude now in the business of exploration and development.




Anti-Oligarchy Leadership

The anti-oligarchy Filipino leader who has a genuine pride of a sovereign country does not tolerate colonial mentality. That is what he has in common with the late President Marcos. Dictatorship can never happen in the Philippines. All major decisions must go through the Senate and the Congress. This is why the very able soon to be lady Senator Imee Marcos vows to work behind the good President Du30.




Continuation of the Golden Age

Under the leadership of President Rodrigo Roa Du30, the projects of former President Marcos are continued. They were halted during the 1986 power grab by the Aquinos. Special Presidential Assistant Bong Go is a good bet for the Senatorial race to ensure that the Build Build Build initiative of the President can progress as planned. Senator Nancy Binay is also key to the nuclear power plant revival. It can serve areas that are not provided with enough electricity from the Meralco monopoly. Natural energy developments like solar, windmill and others can mushroom very soon. Most of all, the deuterium exploration and extraction can finally see the light. The Philippines is definitely the home of clean Hydrogen fuel of the future should the DOE jives with the President’s wishes and not be corrupted by the oligarchs.

China-Philippines Relations Aim for the Return of Golden Age after Bongbong Marcos’ VP Intro

golden age





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

“Under the strategic vision and concerted efforts by both our leaders, China-Philippines relations have been building on the historic turnaround and ushering in a new era, or better known as another Golden Age,” Chinese Embassy political counselor Tan Qingsheng said this at a Christmas reception with the media. This disclosure comes after last year’s visit of the Du30 administration delegates to Beijing. This is where Bongbong Marcos was introduced as the new Vice President.

[VIDEO]: More Chinese investors express interest to pour money in the Philippines. Aside from infrastructure projects, they are also interested in helping small and medium enterprises.




Times Improved Despite South China Sea Dispute

China’s envoy to the Philippines reaffirms Beijing’s support for Manila under the Du30 administration. He cites improved ties between the two nations. This despite the dispute over the South China Sea. Beijing hails the initiatives undertaken by the two countries in 2017.  It also lauds the President’s “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure program.  This is where Chinese investment plays a key role.




Rebuilding Ties after Pnoy Admin’s Move

Du30 met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping twice this year. The effort intends to thaw ties between the Philippines and China. The relationship soured under the previous administration due to the Hague ruling. The two leaders first met in May during the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in China. They met again last month during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Meeting in Vietnam.




Sectors to be Advanced

“Guided by such spirit, our two countries have taken concrete actions to advance our pragmatic cooperation in such priority areas as infrastructure, production capacity, investment, commerce, trade, agriculture and people-to-people exchange,” Tan said.









Golden Age Strategy

The President downplays the disputes as he seeks to improve trade and defense ties with Beijing. However, under the Philippines’ chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations this year, China agreed to negotiate a Code of Conduct to govern the waters under dispute by six parties. This diplomacy follows the same principle as Bongbong Marcos’ father. The Chinese did not forget that during the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ reign, both countries prosper in an era called the Golden Age. That’s why his son was applauded when Du30 introduced him as VP last year if he wins his case. The recount of his electoral protest against Leni Robredo is in February 2018.

Loyalists Remember Bongbong Marcos during China’s Anniversary Event

Anniversary





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Loyalists at a Bongbong Marcos Facebook page remember how he continued his father’s legacy in forging relationships with China. Marcos was at the 66th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China Celebration. At this time of writing, it is still not confirmed if he is also in attendance for the 68th Anniversary event recently. However, the country’s relationship with China keeps Philippines safe from North Korea’s missile threat whose leader Kim Jong-Un is furious with America.

 [VIDEO]: Sen. Bongbong Marcos, a strong advocate of bilateral talks between China and the Philippines, is invited as a VIP guest to the celebration of the 66th Anniversary of the Founding of the People’s Republic of China. Makati City, 25 September 2015.




Cape Town Celebration

“For 68 years, the Chinese people have shaken the shackles of poverty by becoming the second-largest economy in the world.” These were the words of Consul-General Kang Yong at the Cape Town celebration of the 68th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Kang Yong welcomed more than 100 guests at the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel. Its attendance includes Mayco members, members of the Cape Winelands municipality and the Chinese community.




Independent Foreign Policy

As he assumed control of the government, Philippine President Rodrigo Du30 announced that his administration would pursue an “independent foreign policy.” This pronouncement inspired debate on what an independent foreign policy actually means, especially in the context of the Asia-Pacific where there are tensions in the disputed South China Sea (SCS).




China Recognizes the President’s Plans

The new Philippine ambassador to China, Jose Sta. Romana provided a more detailed explanation of the elements in Du30’s independent foreign policy against the backdrop of the current dynamics of international affairs. It is the most comprehensive account of an independent foreign policy to come from a Du30 administration official thus far.








Practical Diplomacy

Detractors criticize the President for developing business relations with China and bad-mouthing the US. He even introduced Bongbong Marcos there as the new Vice President if he wins the electoral protest against Leni Robredo. If you think of it, Du30 is actually imposing a practical diplomacy. Since China tolerates North Korea’s missile tests by their continued gasoline supply, Kim Jong-Un won’t turn his fury on the South China Sea or the West Philippine Sea despite the country’s long-time alliance with the US. Perhaps, that’s the reason why Guam is the target and Hokkaido in Japan serve as their testing ground.

Anti-Du30 Worried About the Marcos-like Infrastructure Mortgage to China

mortgage





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Du30’s detractors are on full alert now that their drug war media propaganda is disregarded by international bodies. Now, they turn to the country’s friend since Marcos’ time, China. Liberal Party supporters now pay attention with the mortgage to China after the latter bestowed infrastructure loans to the administration without internal interference.

Cayetano’s Defense

A pro-LP media recently claimed that in the recent UNHRC universal periodic review for the Philippines, only China out of 47 countries believed Senator Allan Peter Cayetano’s defense on the alleged drug war human rights record. If the rest of the 46 countries did not buy Cayetano’s explanation just because they still urge the government to stop extra-judicial killings, why is EU now in support with the anti-illegal drugs campaign?




Future Mortgage

The president’s economic relation with China is criticized by the anti-Marcos people. They claimed that the friendship is no longer between the president and China. Those who oppose Bongbong Marcos’ return to power are scared that the Philippines now enters a new chapter in foreign relations as it fosters the relationship with its rival over its claims in the West Philippine Sea or the South China Sea. They consider this as mortgaging the country’s future for the second time after the Marcos regime to an economic giant. How can they be worried that China can expand communist imperialism this way when it was the late Noynoy Aquino who tolerated community rebels in the country to help destroy the golden age?




Infrastructure Projects

They criticize the agreements on Chinese infrastructure loans called the “Build, Build, Build.” This is no doubt the driver of the success of the Marcos governance. In fact, the late president highlighted in his. Gold reserves at the world bank can only be used to enhance public service for the welfare of the people. Projects such as infrastructure, education, and health care must be prioritized.









Anti-Marcos Stunt

Why do the anti-Marcos politicians try to block the progress of the people? It is clear by now what former president Ferdinand Marcos said that pro-communist people are the once who deprive its citizens of the right to vote and social benefits. Therefore, it is clear that these Liberal Party players are the real communists hiding behind their improvised democracy.

South China Sea: Listen to DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez – Not to Ramos

South China Sea





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said that when it comes to South China Sea dispute, the people should pay more attention to the remarks of DTI Secretary Ramon Lopez. This is about the Philippines-China economic current ties instead of former President Fidel Ramos’ war threats. Ramos said that the Philippines can afford to launch an “economic war” with China in retaliation to their South China Sea illegal activities.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN News
[VIDEO]: Former President Fidel V. Ramos believes the Philippines can go on an “economic war” with China but only on a tiny scale after Beijing’s aggressive moves in the South China Sea.



Ramos’ Economic War

Ramos suggested what the President could do to fight back in the region’s dispute through an economic war with China on a very small basis. This could be in the form of promoting “what we can manufacture better than China,” he said. “If we are talking about a war on a tiny scale, maybe more on economics than anything else, yes we can go to war because it’s a reciprocal thing,” Ramos added.




PI-China Cooperation

Geng Shuang also said that the two countries have conducted cooperation in various fields since the current president offers his hands in friendship with China. “In this regard, I hope you will pay more attention to the recent remark of Secretary Ramon Lopez of Trade and Industry of the Philippines that the Philippine economy has gained from economic and trade cooperation with China,” Geng reiterated.




Good-Neighborliness

Beijing stressed that both President Du30 and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed on adhering to “good-neighborliness” and proper settlement of differences. This must be respected by former leaders of the country and its citizens. After all, the majority are for peace and not war.









Ramos’ Time was Over

With all due respect to former President Fidel V. Ramos, he had a lot of opportunities to solve the South China Sea dispute – but he had done nothing significant. Now, it’s the time of the new Philippine President Du30 and he should not meddle with the agreements of both countries for peace by criticizing the Filipino President’s actions on the issue through media.
