Russia Interfered during the U.S. Elections?


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

People scrutinize Mainstream media for fake news recently. This leads Denzel Washington to comment: If you don’t read the news you are uninformed if you do read, you are misinformed, he said. However, that’s not all. It is alleged by U.S. Spy Chiefs that Russia spearheads hacking government computer systems to spread misinformation that discredit Hillary Clinton. President Trump does not buy this.

Russian Authorization

James Clapper, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Marcel Lettre, undersecretary of defense for intelligence, tells the committee during the hearing in a joint statement that “only Russia’s senior-most officials” could have authorized the operation. They refer to hackers’ who steal Democratic Party files and emails.

Not Convinced

The Republican mocks via Twitter intelligence errors of the CIA, the FBI, and other agencies. It challenges them to prove Putin’s administration to the hacking and leaks.

CNN Report

US officials tell CNN that they already have the names of the liaison officers who deliver the hacked emails from Russia to WikiLeaks. Russian officials indicate that that celebrate Trump’s victory. His triumph is also a win for Moscow so to speak. Former president Obama hopes that Trump looks into this report.

Friendly with Russia

Trump vows to get along with Russia and admires Putin. His non-traditional approaches are compared to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Isn’t this a good thing that the possibility of warring nations can be minimized if not eliminated?

Deuterium Deposits: Enough Power to Boost the President’s Ego vs US?

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

A very large deposit of deuterium can be found in the Philippine Deep, located off the waters of Surigao – but a lot more within the West Philippine Sea.  First discovered and isolated in 1932 by an American chemist Harold Urey, deuterium or heavy water is composed of two isotopes of hydrogen and an oxygen atom, with a chemical formula of D20 or H30.  Initially, the Americans do not want the Philippines to deal with China for its exploration.

[VIDEO]: Vast Deuterium deposits from its discovery to its development with possible partners. Can Duterte’s attitude towards the US fueled by the confidence that Filipinos have an ACE card  with nature’s gift?

The Promise for the Future

Even in highly developed first world countries and the possible costs might be staggering, research on this opportunity is still worth investing in, considering the high stakes involved.  This program could propel the Philippines as the biggest hydrogen fuel (Li-Hy) producer in the world, and become the only fuel producer 40 to 50 years from now in an oil-depleted world economy.

America’s Dream

The United States of America once dreamed of sending a man to the moon.  Now it is history. What she did to pursue that dream made her the world’s most technologically advanced and economically prosperous nation. This could happen to the Philippines.

Hope for the Philippines

Once Deuterium exploration and extraction succeed, public works, private construction, economic and financial booms are expected to happen in the Philippines in the same manner as those which happened in the Middle East and financial centers of the world from 1974 to 1984, with everybody earning their respective comfortable livelihood, while pricing basic prime necessities at reasonable and affordable levels.

US’s Rivalry with China

Since the US and China are now competing with almost everything in the international scene, it is but natural for the Americans to feel bad if Philippines chooses to deal with China for the deuterium exploration. The US has been very confident that Filipinos will remain loyal to them. They have not realized that their part in former President Ferdinand Marcos’s downfall can go back to them at this time.

Duterte as Marcos Loyalist

In one of the interviews of Bongbong Marcos, the son of the late strongman, he mentioned the betrayal of the US to his father who thought that they were in friendly relations. Now, it looks like a Marcos loyalist in the person of President Duterte is here to avenge that.

Better Deuterium Deal

Is Duterte just bluffing the US to get a better deal when Deuterium exploration is predicted – or he is really serious in pushing through with China’s partnership?

Barack Obama Approval Rating Surges High after Duterte’s Insults

Barack Obama approval rating

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
President Obama just recently hit the highest approval rating of his second term in CNN’s new poll 55% of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing. It is the highest  Barack Obama approval rating since his inauguration for the second time.

Philippine President’s Insults

It’s not the insults of the Philippine President that matter to Americans. It’s how he responded gracefully. Obama hit 55% just twice in the CNN survey after his first year in office. Also once right before his second term. Obama approval ratings were much higher in the opening months of 2009. As he was also riding a post-election high.

Impact to Hillary Clinton’s Candidacy

The president is hoping that his approval rating helps get Hillary Clinton elected next month. “Let me just say that I think the president views himself as a clean-up hitter,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest during a briefing with reporters. He discussed the president’s role in the campaign.

CNN Poll Duration

The CNN/ORC poll was conducted Sept. 28-Oct. 2 of 1,501 adults; the margin of error is 2.5 percentage points. This was when Philippine President Rodrigo calls him “son of a whore”. Not enough, Duterte also tells Obama anew “to go to hell”. Duterte refrains from listening to Obama’s advice on his drug war.

Humility Goes a long Way and it shows in Barack Obama Approval Rating

All the bad words coming from the mouth of the tough-talking Philippine President do not irk Obama. He just tries to understand that he is a “colorful guy”. Therefore his comments are also colorful.

Colorful Guy’s Take

Obama refuses to escalate the war on words. He cancelled his supposed visit for the time being. There are also reports that the US may cancel its military aid to the Philippines. As expected, Duterte boasted that his country can stand alone without America’s help.

Clinton: Obama’s patient protection and affordable care act crazy but Trump’s version, worst

patient protection and affordable care act

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Former President Bill Clinton criticized the Affordable Care Act at a campaign, says that the way President Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment works in practice is “the craziest thing in the world.” But Donald Trump’s strategy is not the answer either.

TVT Nation
[VIDEO]: Watch how Bill Clinton criticizes an ally’s Obamacare – but Trump’s strategy, not the solution either; according to an observer.

It’s supposed to be patient protection and affordable care act

“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people are out there busting it sometimes 60 hours a week wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” he said in Flint, Mich. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”

Still, Clinton said repealing the Affordable Care Act—as Republican nominee Donald Trump wants to do—isn’t the answer.

Did not Work for All

The system works for people who are eligible for Medicaid or for other insurance subsidies, Clinton added, but not for middle-class families who make too much to get government assistance but still have trouble affording high premiums.“

Clarification from Hillary Clinton’s Camp

Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said the former president was referring to the way the health care system used to work.

Just an Observation – showing that there’s a room for further improve

“Well, what he was referring to was the health care system [touches earpiece] both as it used to be and then sometimes what happens in some of these markets, you know, where basically the marketplace skews the cost,” Mook said. “This is exactly why we’ve got to do something about premium increases”.

Panelo: UN Sec Gen Ban, Obama hear Duterte’s side


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Rappler covered this: Diplomatic sources say this was a breach of protocol during the ASEAN Summit in Vientiane, Laos

Diplomatic sources say this was a breach of protocol during the ASEAN Summit in Vientiane, Laos

VIENTIANE, Laos – Salvador Panelo, chief legal counsel of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, has taken his job to another level.

To defend his boss, Panelo personally approached UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and US President Barack Obama at the recently concluded Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Laos.

Diplomatic sources said that what Panelo did was a breach of protocol.

They said that in events like this, lower-ranking officials cannot simply approach higher-ranking ones from other countries to bring up certain issues. They can only talk about these issues if the higher-ranking officials approach the lower-ranking ones, diplomatic sources said.

Welcomed or not, the effort was done and CNN elaborated:

A handshake and a quick chat between President Rodrigo Duterte and U.S. President Barack Obama was all it took for both leaders to clear the air and be on good terms.

At least, that’s what Philippine officials are trying to project afterDuterte and Obama briefly met on Wednesday night, before attending the gala dinner of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Full story here:

Rappler continues: Still, Panelo came up to Ban and Obama to address their concerns about the Duterte administration.

Ban and Obama, for one, have both criticized recent killings in the Philippines under Duterte’s watch.

Panelo recounted telling Ban in one of the ASEAN events, “I want to assure you that the Philippine government has not committed any violation of any international law or our laws.”

“Mali ‘ka ko ang dumarating sa inyong impormasyon…E ‘ka ko, perception ‘yan, pero hindi ‘yan ang nangyayari,” he said. (I told him he’s receiving the wrong information…I told him, that’s perception, but that’s not what is happening.)

Filipinos in America should seek refuge now at Philippine Embassy as Duterte challenged Obama on Humanitarian US wars

US wars

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The tough-talking Philippine President strikes again and this time, his vocal toughness is aimed at no other than US President Barack Obama. They are scheduled to meet on Sept 6 during the East Asian Summit and Obama has been very concerned about Duterte’s alleged human rights violations as he intensified the war on drugs in the country.

President Rodrigo Duterte insisted that Obama must listen to him before he even starts to talk about human rights. This clearly shows that the Filipino leader is undermining Obama’s knowledge on what’s happening in the country and the vital humanitarian context. He said; “They must understand the problem first before we talk about human rights. I would insist, listen to me: this is what the problem is, then we can talk.”

Knowing Duterte’s character so far, perhaps Filipinos in America will not even seek clarification at the Philippine embassy on what the president is talking about because he is noted to have a split personality. Tough in front of the camera but he can be polite and soft spoken in person.

It is actually best that the two leaders would meet and talk things out in person because throwing mud at each other through the media would just escalate misundersatndings. The strong bilateral relationship between the two countries must not be compromised because of the long standing alliance. Duterte’s hard headedness and boastful acts should not add to the US wars being fought now by Obama – just like the trade war with China. After all, the US is dedicated to protect the Philippines from any threats from China.

Australia’s role in isolating China when war happens with US


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
David C Gompert used to be the principal deputy director of National Intelligence from 2009 to 2010 and has currently led a US Army-commissioned report to examine the possibility of the world’d two military powers going to war, particularly US and China.

The US and China war if ever is expected to be long, and the destruction can increasingly become more intensive as it lingers. The bizarre thing is that, it could easily erupt just by triggering egos within the affected South China Sea regions over territorial disputes.

Gompert suggested in the report that Australia, a close American ally, could play a pivotal role that could secure the Asian allies if tensions with Beijing escalate.

“Depending on the cause and focus of the conflict, other East Asian states would mostly side with the United States in varying degrees: from support ranging from permission to use bases to the possible commitment of forces (eg Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines),” it says.

“The participation of Australian forces, because of their quality, could have military significance despite their small size.

“Apart from military contributions, the longer and more severe the conflict, the more and perhaps more permanently China could become isolated from the very region it aspires to lead”, as extracted from the report.
