Leni Robredo doing what she thinks she can do best to help, but…

I think the comments saying “Let Leni lead” because she is approaching it from a “local executive mindset” instead of a “national executive mindset” is kind of wrong. Granted, her office can execute tasks and maybe even delegate, but she doesn’t need to be hands-on on the ground level itself because she is a national […]

As #RollyPH ravages the Philippines… Where is “vice president” Leni Robredo??

Many agree that “vice president” Leni Robredo is not a “silent worker”. She, after all, made disasters like the Taal Volcano eruption early this year all about herself. It is therefore understandable why the latest “activist” slogan of the Yellowtards is all about wondering out loud where Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is in these times […]

US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim should be SUMMONED to Malacanang to explain contempt of Philippine court!

What is the meaning of this “concern” US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim expressed in a tweet he issued the other day over the guilty verdict handed down by a Philippine court on Rappler CEO Maria Ressa? Is Ambassador Kim suggesting that the United States has a legal opinion or even a say on […]

Being under the influence of alcohol NOT an excuse to verbally abuse police officers!

The latest circus being politicised by the Opposition is that incident in Manila’s chi chi Dasmarinas Village involving a man verbally abusing a police officer who was responding to a call to investigate a social distancing violation. A baffling tweet from Commission on Elections (COMELEC) commisioner Rowena Guanzon, however, exhibited yet another flawed argument that […]

COMELEC Commissioner @Rowena_Guanzon believes only lawyers and only those from UP and Ateneo are worth her time!

Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon is obviously not a very classy person. When you are privileged to have earned an excellent education from an excellent school, you do not use that as a means to put down other people. However, this is exactly what Guanzon does in a recent tweet. Adding credentialism to […]

COMELEC Commissioner Rowena Guanzon should RESIGN for using her position to THREATEN “pro-PNP trolls”!

In a recent tweet, by the Philippines’ Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Commisioner Rowena Guanzon appeared to be threatening to use her position to disadvantage Filipinos she perceives to be supporters of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in the next elections. Guanzon is suggesting that she will bring to bear the power of the COMELEC to […]

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. Although it remains debatable whether or not Sotto violated the “Bayanihan Act”, it needs to be pointed out that he appeared […]

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!

It seems like it. “Vice President” Leni Robredo seems to be a contributor to the ongoing one-upmanship amongst politicians as they scramble to be seen to be doing good amidst the chaos engulfing Metro Manila. She had recently announced that her office will be fielding “free shuttle services” to health workers “and other frontliners”. [A] […]
