Why all HR cases against the Marcoses were filed in US courts?

For all the Yellows' shrieks alleging widespread human rights violations (HRVs) during Martial Law, they have never filed a single case for such crimes at the Commission on Human Rights it set up in 1987 nor in any Philippine court.

Cory Aquino the queen of darkness: The perversion of human rights standard

Quite to the contrary, it was Trillanes who tried to kill democracy by attempting to overthrow the legitimate government – twice.

The hypocrisy of the priests and the nuns is so nauseating

President Rodrigo Duterte is right. Many priests and nuns in the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines are hypocrites. Add to that description the view that many of them are political opportunists. They will stop at nothing to discredit Duterte, even if it means being hypocrites in the process.

Cory and Ninoy may be personal heroes to some Yellows, but certainly not National Heroes

Early this year, some of the devoted "yellows" and their gullible followers have ardently discussed again reviving the plan to turn the late Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino and his wife President Corazon Cojuangco Aquino as national heroes or saints, or both, while, at the same time, busy demonizing President Duterte and his federalism proposal.
