The Columbia University connection: Highly funded US-based Yellow efforts to oust Duterte

The administration of Rody apparently has dossiers on yellow personalities who are part of efforts to destabilize the government which is being backstopped with the filing of an International Criminal Court (ICC) case against the President.

Solicitor General Jose Calida reminded the plotters they are criminally liable for their efforts and that the administration has already identified those groups which have been moving to launch another power grab.

The yellows were responsible for Edsa I and II which were painted as legitimate people revolts but are now being reassessed as military-backed takeovers of the yellow mob which is comprised of the Liberal Party and its elite backers from the Church and business sectors.

Calida said the plotters "would be made to pay for it" and criminal cases are already being prepared.

The plot is well organized and richly funded and has a very extensive network that includes influential publications and broadcast firms in the Philippines and the United States.

Earlier uncovered was the so-called Columbia University connection that is being funded by New York-based Filipino-American billionaire Loida Nicolas Lewis through her sister, Imelda Nicolas, who is an alumna of Columbia University.

The US-based anti-Duterte group also included Sheila Coronel who is the sister of Noynoy's peace negotiator Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, United Nations (UN) Agnes Callamard, CNN and Time reporter Rishi Iyengar, New York Times reporter Ainara Tiefenthailer and Fortune contributor Panos Mordoukutas. The common denominator of all is Columbia University, where they either studied or taught in.

Iyengar wrote the Time magazine article "Night falls on the Philippines." Tiefenthaler interviewed self-confessed Davao Death Squad (DDS) assassin Edgar Matobato even before the Senate hearing on extrajudicial killings where Matobato was exposed as a fraud.

Coronel is a known yellow journalist and is dean of Academic Affairs at the Columbia Journalism School.

Callamard of course had insisted on conducting a probe on the war on drugs on Rody but later backed off after Rody demanded a public debate on whatever her findings would be which Rody anticipated to be all yellow inspired.

The Columbia connection is apparently the conduit of foreign news outfits to get sensational stories regarding the supposed state-sponsored extrajudicial killings (EJK) that would link Rody.

It is also the main outlet for Rody's critics such as Senators Antonio Trillanes and detained Leila de Lima in launching attacks against Rody targeting the global audience.

The campaign revolves around Rody's successful war on drugs and the EJK being linked to it.

The plot employs powerful organizations such as the European Union parliament, US groups Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International as part of the destabilization effort.

Calida said the black propaganda against Rody is part of a grand plan which is now being done before the international community to gather attention and sympathy.

Calida said the yellows remain sore losers as their bet Mar Roxas landed a poor second to Rody despite what is now being uncovered as a systematic effort to steal the elections that worked for VP Leni at least. The ICC complaint filed by Jude Jose Sabio, lawyer of self-confessed hitman Edgar Matobato, was baseless and is evidently a yellow effort, according to the SolGen.

"Matobato is being coddled by (Senator Antonio) Trillanes. So you would know the agenda right away," Calida said.

It was also obvious that the international smear campaign against Rody rises in crescendo whenever yellow stalwarts like de Lima find themselves in deep trouble.

The yellows, thus far, have been frustrated even in bringing down public support for Rody as he continues to get high survey ratings that even the yellow kingpins Cory Aquino and her son Noynoy have never maintained.

Rody says he will do whatever he had set out to do and suffer the consequences later which is the first exercise of will for a leader of the country after so many administrations.
