Destabilization moves against the Duterte administration futile

Destabilization moves against Duterte

Even as the usual destabilizers continue to deny that they are out to overthrow President Duterte, too many indications point to their moves to oust him and clearly, ensuring that their protectors, Chief Justice (CJ) Lourdes Sereno and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales stay in position with their yellow vice president, Leni Robredo getting to sit in Malacañang for at least eight years as these ouster moves against Duterte come much earlier than expected.

Bautista and Smartmatic
(Bautista and Smartmatic General Manager Elie Moreno answers on Thursday, May 12, 2016)

It would have been quietly resolved away from the public eye. But Congress probably forgot that it was dealing with someone who, while he claimed to be quitting his post to save his children, has not been providing financial support for them for nearly a year now.

The punishment that Leila de Lima deserves

Leila de Li

It was Sun Tzu, the great Chinese war strategist, who said that if you wait long enough, you will see the bodies of all your enemies float down the river. This seems so apt in the case of jailed Senator Leila de Lima, who is now about to suffer the same fate of the people who crossed her when she was the all-powerful secretary of justice.

The Yellows and Reds are the real threats to Philippine democracy

The reds and the yellows

Those who are opposed to the Duterte administration have labeled the President as a fascist, a dictator and a leader who murdered his own people. They claimed that the country is heading to dictatorship with Duterte's iron-fisted rule akin to that of the Marcos dictatorship. While this characterization of Duterte is not shared by the overwhelming majority of the Filipinos, such assertion deserves a close scrutiny and debate if only to educate the proponents of such a preposterous claim.

A well-coordinated plot to take down the President by the yellows is now at play

The yellow cabal

It is a plot that draws its sustenance from a sense of entitlement of those who took power after the fall of Marcos. These are the people to which the coup led by Juan Ponce Enrile and Fidel Ramos had to yield. And when that happened, it was as if the country was handed over to a privileged class who took it upon themselves to act like they have a franchise over us.
