Imdelda convicted on a law that doesn't exist; SC likely to reverse Sandiganbayan

Imdelda convicted on a law that doesn

IF you manage to plod through the Sandiganbayan's laboriously worded—deliberately so, I suspect—70-page decision on the Imelda Marcos graft case, you will be astonished as I was as to how the Yellows and Reds have managed to weave a colossal web of propaganda lies about it. (The decision is downloadable at the Sandiganbayan website.)

The yellow and red screams to lynch Imelda have nothing to do with justice

There is something perverse, uncivilized and sadistic in the hysterical shrieks of the Yellows and the Reds demanding the immediate incarceration of an 89-year old grandmother, Imelda Marcos.

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

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

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

The fact that human rights violations were committed during the period of martial law, especially during its early phase of implementation, is inarguable. There is documentation in the records of the Philippine military, as well as in well-documented historical accounts of the period.

Democracy is alive and well in the Philippines, Trillanes tried to kill it twice

Democracy is alive and well in the Philippines, Trillanes tried to kill it twice

The important thing to remember about Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is that the issuance of the arrest warrant against him is not, as he claims, the death knell of democracy. Quite to the contrary, it was Trillanes who tried to kill democracy by attempting to overthrow the legitimate government – twice.

If EDSA was a miracle at all, it was only assembled in the Philippines. The key components were designed and fabricated elsewhere. Where? Look West, to Washington.

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.
