VFA abrogation

Those who voted for Senate resolution 337 asking the Supreme Court to rule on the constitutionality of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte aka Digong’s unilateral termination of the VFA at least showed some conviction on their part.  If they lose, no one can claim that they...

WHAT CONSEQUENCES?

(After ranting and raving mad about the UNHRC resolution, Locsin now says the vote is a “small and harmless” matter.)  It is now patently obvious that Foreign Secretary Teodoro “Tweeterboy” Locsin, Jr. is a person with a very brave, sometimes filthy, mouth. 

WATERSHED IN US HISTORY

Tomorrow, January 20, will be a watershed in US history.  Never in its history has there been so much anxiety, fear even, among the American people of what might happen during the inauguration of an incoming President, Joe Biden. 

MENDICANT MENTALITY

I feel sick to the pit of my stomach whenever I hear or read about the argument advanced by the critics of the termination of the VFA, including some senators and congressmen who should know better, that we stand to lose US aid and grants.  

LOCSIN SHOULD BE FIRED

HOW NOT TO TREAT A PATIENT

Dr. Tarcisio and Mrs. Reynes, in-laws of my eldest son, wrote me about the harrowing experience the family went through with the confinement of Tarcisio’s brother, Danilo, at the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center in Las Pinas, Metro Manila.

RAMOS AND ARROYO SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

Ex-President Fidel Ramos, during whose term the onerous water concession contracts with Ayala’s Manila Water and Pangilinan’s Maynilad were forged, said “Our word must be our bond”.  “Our word” or “his word”?  He was the president.  He had the final say on...

CIA

I WENT over the video again. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte aka Digong didn’t say the European Union ambassadors should leave the country within 24 hours, as reported by the mainstream media. What he actually implied was that once any EU ambassador interferes in our...
