Too much media coverage is a possible reason Vico Sotto is in trouble with the DOJ

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto got in trouble with the law because of his statement reportedly allowing tricycles to continue operating in his city, which supposedly violates social distancing directives issued by the national government.

Vico Sotto’s fans are ruining his political career

The whole trouble with Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto is that his supporters treat him more like a showbiz celebrity and not much like the professional public servant that he supposedly is. Actually, to describe the people who gush about his every media blitz as “supporters” is erroneous to begin with. What he really has […]

Is Leni Robredo trying to create her own personal alt-government?

What is “vice president” Leni Robredo trying to do exactly? She is fielding her own public transport network, giving her own passive-aggressive press releases that deliberately contradict the president’s position on state matters, presumes to operate her own social services team, and encourages her own seditious cult-following. It seems that Robredo is trying to set […]

Leni Robredo is using the COVID-19 pandemic to campaign for the next election!

Leni Robredo accuses her colleagues of “funding trolls” but shows no PROOF

CNN Philippines “reports” that “vice president” Leni Robredo believes that funds for trolls should be used to provide protective gear for COVID-19 frontliners.

Martial Law Crybabyism and distrust of government has no place in a time of COVID-19 pandemic

Showbiz celebrity Bianca Gonzalez issued a much-needed call to co-operate with measures being implemented to slow the spread of the coronavirus pathogen.

Senator Grace Poe possibly in violation of the law due to financial interests in ABS-CBN!

We’ve been citing the impropriety in Senator Grace Poe’s leading a Senate “inquiry” into the ABS-CBN franchise renewal “issue”. However, it seems that by merely being a Senator, Poe may already be in violation of the law. In his recent article, Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao points out that the Constitution forbids senators from having […]

President Duterte should distance himself from Senator Bong Go

The top executives of ABS-CBN conducted themselves with dignity, grace, and respect during today’s Senate inquiry into its franchise renewal imbroglio. With that as his backdrop, Senator Bong Go stood out in stark contrast. In one misguided statement, Go did the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte an astounding disservice. Sen. Bong Go says he […]

Senate “inquiry” into the ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue will likely achieve NOTHING!

One wonders what the Senate “inquiry” into the plight of the embattled ABS-CBN network will actually achieve. According to House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, the House of Representatives have more “urgent” matters to tackle and this backlog means ABS-CBN will be an agenda for them “in May at the earliest”. Unless the Senate is in […]
