Can Senator Manny Pacquiao’s Boxing Diplomacy be Applied in Territorial Disputes under the Du30-Marcos Alliance?

senator





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The victorious boxing champion of the Filipinos, Senator Manny Pacquiao can only be happier to see both the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and Philippine President Rodrigo Du30 sitting in one row. This is during his latest fight  Lucas Matthysse in Malaysia. The people certainly did not forget how some Filipinos were massacred during the Sabah claim in Lahad Datu. New articles label it as the 2013 Lahad Datu standoff. It was a military conflict that started on 11 February 2013 and fully ended on 24 March 2013. This is where the men of the late Sultan Jamalul Kiram wishes to return to their homeland but were killed. During the 2016 elections campaign, Du30, Marcos, and Pacquiao are one in the Sabah claim issue. They aim to continue the quest of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos that was sabotaged by the Aquinos.

Boxing Diplomacy

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is now a fan of Senator Manny Pacquiao. President Du30 was also present to cheer on the Filipino boxer. “This is indeed a historic day for Malaysia when we have a Filipino champion fighting in Malaysia witnessed by the leaders of both countries,” Mahathir said. This is part of our boxing diplomacy. We don’t punch each other,” he added. After the boxing match, Mahathir joined President Du30 to congratulate Pacquiao. The two leaders are expected to hold talks in the upcoming working day.




The President’s Wish for Pacquaio

The President congratulated Senator Pacquiao on his stunning knockout victory recently. Du30 describes Pacquiao as one of the world’s greatest boxers. He expresses hope that he will continue to be a source of inspiration for the Filipinos. “I would like to congratulate Senator Manny Pacquiao for giving us pride and bringing the Filipino nation together once more,” he said. Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao should consider retirement and enjoy life, the leader advised Pacman.

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos Joins Well-Wishers

Among the well-wishers were Senators Nancy Binay, Grace Poe, Richard Gordon, JV Ejercito, Cynthia Villar, and Sonny Angara, former Senator Bongbong Marcos, and Justice Undersecretary Emmeline Aglipay Villar. They posted their messages via social media. Bongbong Marcos always has the approval of Pacquiao in the field of politics. He even urges people to learn how to forgive if the late President Marcos, the clan’s patriarch hurt them in some ways since he comes clear of whatever accusations he got while still alive in legal courts.









The Du30-Marcos Diplomatic Style

It is a positive thing that PM Mahathir takes the diplomacy of Pacquiao’s boxing fame as the symbol for his country’s relationship with the Philippines. The Du30-Marcos style is so diplomatic that no war can occur even over a very sensitive issue like the South China Sea dispute. Marcos joined the President in Beijing when he started negotiating with the Chinese to leave the disputes first and strengthen the economic ties of both countries. This move is actually a big credit to the ASEAN countries. It is best to join hands in solving social issues than fight with guns that no one can ever win.

Du30-Marcos Relations with China Softens American-North Korean-Japanese Conflict

World War





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

It was a worldwide perception in the past that the Chinese would always aid North Korea, regarded as its little brother. However, the foreign relations now has changed. Philippine President Du30 regained the same friendship with the Chinese as the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ time. It is backed up nowadays by his son, Bongbong Marcos to prevent World War III. The American President reaches out to the Filipino leader to talk to China to help reprimand Pyong Yang’s Kim Jung Un. Beijing is North Korea’s only significant ally but is now frustrated over its nuclear and missile tests. China recently closes its main road connection with North Korea allegedly for repair but the reopening is indefinite.

[VIDEO]: Tensions with North Korea in focus after missile test




North Korea is Isolated

The bridge closure comes after state-owned airline Air China suspended flights between Beijing and North Korea. This is due to a lack of demand. But it deepens the North’s isolation amid mounting U.N. sanctions. China, who has the alliance of Russia warns North Korea that it is alone should it declare war on Japan or America.




Du30’s Strategy

Du30  tells Trump to stop threatening North Korea and assure Kim Jong Un instead that there are no plans to oust him. The U.S., Japan, China and South Korea should sit down with the North Korean leader to tackle the Pyongyang regime’s weapons development and missile tests, the tough-talking President said.



Japan is on the Defensive Side

The city of Fukuoka in western Japan conducts a drill to prepare for another possible North Korean ballistic missile launch. This happens two days after Pyongyang’s recent missile test. About 50 people at Tenjin Chuo Park in the center of the city moved underground. Residents received a second alert five minutes later informing them that a missile had flown over the country. This might instill fear among the people but the government feels it’s necessary.








Diplomatic Ties

The Japanese learned from the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the Americans during World War II. They might be a sleeping warrior now but preparations are in place to minimize collateral damages should a missile or nuclear attack happens. Unline World War II, if World War III manifests, the Philippines together with the Chinese, Japanese, Americans and even the Russians vow to isolate and suppress North Korea immediately. Thanks to the Du30-Marcos brilliance.

Bongbong Marcos as Vice President can Clear Out ICC, Local, and Foreign Threats against Du30

ICC





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The new Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque is the only Philippine lawyer allowed to practice law at the ICC as a human rights crusader. He hopes to be able to advise the President directly regarding the manner and methods for the drug war. The international case against Du30 is the last straw of the opposition to take him down. Meanwhile, on foreign relations, the US President decides to extend his trip to Asia, a day more in the Philippines to coincide with the East Asia regional summit. He warns China anew that “warrior nation” Japan could take matters into its own hands if the threat posed by North Korea is not addressed. Du30’s strategies with the US, China, and Japan are obviously working but his detractors can’t settle with that not until Bongbong Marcos wins the electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo soon.

[VIDEO]: Compilation of Bongbong Marcos-Du30 cooperation.




ICC as Last Resort

Roque said that the ICC is the “court of last resort,” and that there is no evidence that proves Du30 ordered killings to be carried out by the so-called Davao Death Squad (DDS). The case pertains to the alleged violations during his stint as Davao City mayor. The ICC will only exercise jurisdiction “if local courts are unwilling or unable to do so.” Parties have to show that a case filed in the Philippines did not succeed before it can go to the ICC, Roque added.




Not Missing the East Asian Summit

Trump left Joint Base Andrews and is bound for Hawaii. From there he will travel on to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. The American President unleashes a barrage of invective comments against political foes. This even includes his own Justice Department, which is investigating his campaign’s ties to Russia. He also announces during departure that the marathon trip is extended to include an East Asia Summit in the Philippines, which he had been slated to miss.




Japan as Warrior Nation

“Japan is a warrior nation, and I tell China and I tell everyone else that listens, I mean, you’re gonna have yourself a big problem with Japan pretty soon if you allow this to continue with North Korea,” Trump said. President Xi Jinping has been “pretty terrific” on North Korea, and that “China is helping us,” he added. The Chinese leader chides from Trump for failing to rein in Kim. China implements tougher UN sanctions against North Korea instead. That warms up Xi’s relationship with the US leader. North Korea in July launched two intercontinental ballistic missiles apparently capable of reaching the US mainland, according to its leader Kim Jong-Un as a gift to “American bastards.”









Bongbong Marcos’ Take

Bongbong Marcos clearly said that Du30’s enemies would only stop attacking the President when he becomes Vice President. He added that those who are against the Filipino leader cannot bear him having to replace Du30 as President. it is not a secret that there is some kind of Du30-Marcos understanding even before the election 2016. In fact, most of the President’s controversial but effective moves follow the principles of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The people are anxiously waiting for the recount date from the Supreme Court.

WBO Review: Pacquiao Won Only 5 Rounds vs Horn’s 7 Boxing Rounds

boxing

o  



welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Philippines Games and Amusements Board said that it only wants to protect the integrity of boxing. It cites the miscalls by the referee and judges. Based on this, five anonymous, competent Judges from different countries were asked by the WBO to review the bout without sound. The results show that Pacquiao won 5 rounds while Horn won 7 rounds.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Senator Manny Pacquiao on Wednesday urges the World Boxing Organization to act on a protest letter sent by the Games and Amusements Board, the Philippines’ regulatory body for boxing.



Unfair but Cannot Change

THE World Boxing Organisation re-scores the Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn welterweight title fight. This is because of the contentious unanimous decision awarded to the Australian challenger. However, it was clarified that there is no plan to change the result. The WBO just responded to the request of a Philippines government department to review the fight. Pacquiao accepted the decision but said that the referee was unfair.




Re-Scoring Results

The re-scoring tallied directly with two of the judges on the night. They both gave the 115-113 score for Horn. The third judge, Waleska Roldan, scored the Australian 117-111.




Promoter not Surprised

Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum indicates that a re-match with Horn is possible for November or December this year. Pacquiao was also open to this as confirmed by him during an interview after the fight. He is always welcome to the Australian audience because of his graciousness after his defeat.









End of Contract

The Philippine Senator, on the other hand, claims that his promotional agreement with Arum is at an end and he also considers retirement at 38. He is actually old already for the ring but Arum leaves the re-match decision to Pacquiao.

Senator Nancy Binay Hailed Manny Pacquiao for Making the Philippines Proud Again

Binay





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Senator Nancy Binay praises fellow Senator Manny Pacquiao who managed to defeat Vargas during their recent boxing match, stripping him with his title. Pacquiao still attending his mandate full time never ceases to make the Filipinos proud again. Here’s the story from Senate:

Youtube video by: Balitang Maharlika
[VIDEO]: Few months ago, Senator Nancy Binay felt vindicated with the developments in the Senate. Now, she puts that behind her and Praises Pacman for the win against Vargas.



Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao

Muling ipinamalas sa atin ng ating pambansang kamao, si Senator Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao, ang galing at determinasyon ng Pilipino nang kanyang sungkutin ang World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight belt mula sa Mehikanong si Jesse Vargas.




Despite all the advantages that the younger Vargas had over him, all the doubts on his conditioning, and the talks on his retirement, Manny again proved all his detractors wrong.



Boxing

Pinatuyan ni Manny na kaya pa niyang lumaban, na kaya pa niyang manalo.

I have seen how Senator Manny works in the Senate, on how dedicated he is to serve our country. I believe that this is the same fire that fuels him in boxing and it is very much alive.



Pilipino

Maraming salamat, Manny, sa karangalan at papuri na iyong inaani para sa bansa. Ngunit higit pa dito, maraming salamat sa iyong pagiging inspirasyon sa bawat Pilipino — na kaya nating abutin ang bawat pangarap basta’t mayroon tayong pagsisikap, tiyaga, at pananampalataya sa sarili’t at sa Maykapal.




Isang mainit na pagbati sa iyong tagumpay, Manny! Mabuhay ang Pambansang Kamao! Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

Duterte’s Drug War bound to Fail like in many Countries with same Strategies

Drug War







welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

President Rodrigo Duterte tries applying nationally a formula his supporters find to have worked in Davao. His iron-fist approach restored security amid vigilante killings and set up social services unusual in the underdeveloped south. International experts predicted that is bound to fail nationally.





[VIDEO]: Various drug war strategies in many countries were conducted in the past but despite being bloody and expensive, the problems on illegal drugs continue to this date.



Identical Drug War

Philippines has declared a drug war “identical” to those launched in the United States and parts of Latin America and Asia in the past decades. The campaigns led to arrests and deaths but did little to hold back the stream of substances.



Violence due to ill-conceived Policy

What the world witnessed in countries with wars against cartels like Mexico, however, were deaths and “spiraling levels of violence” which many experts have attributed to an ill-conceived government policy.



Ineffective Approach

At least one thousand leaders, including those whose countries have waged war against drugs, admitted that it was ineffective, misguided and only led to disaster.




Disaster in Latin America

“In Latin America, the ‘unintended’ consequences of war have been disastrous. Thousands of people have lost their lives in drug-related violence. Drug lords have taken over entire communities. Misery has spread. Corruption is undermining fragile democracies.



Public Backed Drug War ousted the Prime Minister

The drug war in Thailand in 2003 was backed by public support, but the country eventually pulled back from the policy marked by related killings and shunning of drug users as it did little to curb demand. Instead, addicts consumed illegal substances in hiding and diseases eventually spread. Treatment was neither available in prisons.



Justice Discrimination

Former US President Richard Nixon called drugs “public enemy number one” in 1971. But saw a ballooning number of poor, black people behind bars. Drug supply and production were only temporarily disrupted. It has destroyed policy-community relations in many areas. The Philippines’ drug war can have a different outcome, but it cannot be good based on the world’s experience.

Don’t turn a blind eye: Street Kids on Solvent Addiction

addiction







welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Community efforts are vital in solving the problem of poverty in the country. Most crimes happen in the poor sector of society because of lack of guidance. It’s a way of life for the. As long as they feel good and relieved, the practice continues. Thereby, solvent addiction finds its way to the vulnerable children.





[VIDEO]: Society’s problem starts within families where children are neglected. Some prioritize their solvent supply over food just because it make them feel good.



Government Statistics

Government statistics show two in 10 Filipino families were poor, as of 2015. But the latest survey by the Social Weather Stations (SWS) says 45 percent or around 10.5 million Filipino families consider themselves poor.



Solvent Addiction Comes Handy to Street Children

Street children often find their way away from their family to try to ease the hardships in life. That quest can endanger them. Since they are not guided properly by parents, they are prone to bad influences. Peer pressure introduces them first to solvent addiction.



Making Money from the Needy

Syndicates thrive in impoverished areas because the youngsters are desperate to feel good at very cheap cost. “Rugby Boys” (also called “Solvent Boys”) and even girls do the sniffing in the streets. The chemical is placed in a plastic bag. It is inhaled from the bag to achieve euphoria.



Solvent is as deadly as any dangerous drug

Rugby is an aromatic hydrocarbon solvent that is widely used as an industrial feedstock. Just like any other dangerous drug, rugby could be as deadly. But in the absence of a concrete law to stop the sale of this addictive substance, the problem escalates – damaging our children.



The Power of Volunteerism

Local governments have the power to initiate an information campaign visiting depressed areas in Manila, teaching values and reading and writing to street children under five years old. This should make them aware of the proper way of life.




Government Influence

Top offices in the government can form a joint venture with private companies to organize community outreach program like the Jolllibee Family Values Awards. Now on its sixth year, the annual search will recognize six more exemplary Filipino families who have made an impact in their communities. We need more of these sorts.

No more indoor smoking areas: Philippines Goes Nationwide Smoking Ban

Smoking Ban







welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The Philippines is about to adopt the smoking law that prohibits smoking in public even if its open air. Indoor smoking areas will not be allowed anymore. The executive order will be released soon after President Rodrigo Duterte signs it.





[VIDEO]: An Executive Order will be prohibiting smokers to smoke in public, smoking areas will not be indoors anymore and this includes Casinos. Hotel smoking areas can be in front entrances and open air parking lots.away from most guests.



Covers Gray Areas

According to lawyer Jim Asturias of Health Justice Philippines—an NGO focusing on overlapping issues of health and law, and public health policy. The Executive Order is necessary to address certain gray areas. This  includes the definition of “public places” and the kinds of tobacco products that will be banned.



Patterned after Davao

Department of Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial said the executive order was patterned afterDavao City’s Anti-Smoking Ordinance which was implemented when Duterte was still the mayor of the city.



Smoking Ban Just waiting for signature

According to Ubial, once Duterte signs the executive order, local government units should outline penalties for violators. The smoking ban is nationwide and does not spare casinos.



No Second-Hand Smoking

Ubial said designated smoking areas will be allowed in places where the public will not be exposed to second-hand smoke. “Designate a smoking area away from the public. At the back of a hotel, at the parking area,” Ubial said on Tuesday.



Public Precaution

The smoking areas will have highly visible signage – alongside a graphic depiction of the negative effects of smoking to one’s health and also to those inhaling the second-hand smoke.



Recognized by WHO

Davao City’s smoking ban has been recognized by the World Health Organization as an effective smoke-free order in an urban setting. WHO noted that Davao’s smoking policy “demonstrates that smoke-free laws can work in the Philippines.”

Absolute Poverty: Recounts of Jojo Binay’s former Media Officer

Absolute Poverty





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s disappointing knowing the truth and hearing all the lies about a person you know so well. The only outlet you have is to write. Here’s the recount of the former media relations officer of Jejomar “Jojo” Binay.




[VIDEO]: See the faces of poverty as recounted by the former media relations staff of Jejomar “Jojo” Binay as they tour the poorest of the poor places in the country.


Life’s Learnings

To the man who can’t keep still, who can never do “nothing”. I am grateful that through you I was able to give my voice a wider range. Thank you for the messages of hope that, over 5 years, I had to force into a mind clouded by disillusionment, spoken by a man of the masa (masses) who embodies what they can achieve through hard work, guts, and thick skin to ward off hurtful words. What more can one ask?


Value of Stillness

To the man who always kept me on my toes, alert to every need whenever I was with him, thank you. Throughout the hectic out-of-town sorties you have made me appreciate more the value of stillness, and of seeing the beautiful amid the ugly and mundane.


Absolute Poverty is the Enemy

Most of all, despite the weariness from travel that still lingers in my bones, thank you, because, through those travels, I have seen the enemy. I have seen poverty in its many faces. I have seen mobs smeared with grime, and people shit on highways next to low-set bamboo tables showcasing the wares, vegetables, or fruits that they were peddling.


Smelling the Stench of Absolute Poverty

I have smelled the stench caused by the lack of running water or a day’s hard labor, made more intense as laborers massed together to hear the things they deserve from their government. I have heard people from places rarely visited by government –  and witnessed their amazement that someone would dare visit them despite the absolute poverty around them – as if it were a gift from the gods rather than a right guaranteed them by the state.


Just like Us

(He is small! He has a dark complexion! He is just like us!)

How many times have I stopped myself from bawling out, or from shouting that I was rooting for them, that I hope they could rise above the squalor and the dirt and the wretchedness that bow their heads and back, and keep them from seeing the cold comfort of the moon and stars. Make them curse the sun as an added burden?



You are not the villain your opponents tried to paint you to be. You are the doting grandfather whose eyes light up immediately after seeing your grandchildren, proceeding to grasp their cheeks with both hands

Prepare to Cry: Chief the Pit Bull in the Philippines Saves Family from Killer Cobra

Pit Bull





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores




A Pit Bull dog in the Philippines displayed his heroism when he saved hs family and sacrificed his life. The story is worth reading over and over again as a tribute to men’s best friend. This is in the hope that people would actually take care of them like they should. Responsibly of course. Prepare to cry for this tribute:



Philippines

This is a true story: The young childrens from the Fronteras residence refer to their dog as “kuya” (“big brother”), and he undoubtedly proved it on the day he sacrificed his life to protect the family.

On Monday, February 12 at around 2PM, “Chief”, an American Pit Bull Terrier, rescued Liberata la Victoria(87 years old), and her granddaughter Maria Victoria Fronteras from a poisonous cobra which had entered their home through an opening from the kitchen.




Liberata la Victoria and Chief were watching Television on a sofa when suddenly Chief jumped up and alerted her towards the presence of the cobra much less than 10 feet away. Maria Victoria rushed in and pulled her grandmother into a separate room, hoping the snake would leave.

But after Maria Victoria later emerged inside the room, she was terrified to discover the cobra poised about 2 feet away. Both equally startled, the cobra expanded its hood and appeared being spitting venom since it prepared to strike.

Maneuvering a deadly attack

“The snake was in front of us, maneuvering a deadly attack,” says Maria Victoria. “I screamed out loud to ask for help.”

That’s once from “out of nowhere”, Chief dashed in between the cobra as well as the 2 women, utilizing himself as being a shield against the cobra’s attacks. Chief then seized the cobra by the neck and slammed it to the floor, killing it.




But for Chief it was a Pyrrhic victory. During the struggle, he sustained a fatal bite on the jaw, and moments later he started out gasping for breath and collapsed.

The family members sought the aid of the veterinarian, but they had been told that absolutely nothing could possibly be done. In accordance with the veterinarian, the bite was too close to Chief’s brain, and also the venom had already spread. Maria Victoria called her husband Marlone who, stunned by the news, rushed home immediately.

Friend of the Family

Ian de la Rama, a friend of the family, says it was much less than 30 minutes within the time Chief have been bitten that he “went wobbly and lost control of his organs,” A couple of urinating and defecating uncontrollably. Yet he nevertheless kept clinging to life.

It wasn’t until Marlone arrived that Chief finally let go.

Ian de la Rama describes, “Chief gave his 2 deep breaths and died. He was fighting and saving his last ounces of breath to see a glimpse of his master for the last 2 seconds of his life.”

Ian adds how the last factor Chief did as he gazed up at Marlone was wag his tail.
