The International Criminal Court (ICC) is, well, a criminal court as its name implies. As such, by presuming to be an authority on what is “just” in the Philippines, it is, in effect, competing with Philippine courts for authority. But, see, there is nothing in the Philippine Constitution that allows any entity beyond a Philippine…

Former President Noynoy Aquino is still parroting the same 1980s vintage script and it is coming across like a sign of some sort of mental illness… QUEZON CITY, Philippines — In commemoration of the 33rd anniversary of EDSA Revolution, former President Benigno Aquino III encouraged the public to use their right to vote so that…

Debates in the time of election campaigns are a means to help voters get better informed about their candidates’ positions on important and relevant issues. Of late, however, no such informing has happened in the “debates” organised for this year’s elections. Rather than use these debates as opportunities to showcase intelligent platforms, the Philippine Opposition…

With no constructive proposition to Filipino voters on offer and the infrastructure of its Demolition Campaign against the Duterte government in a spiral of self-destruction, the Opposition are hard-pressed to raise their brand equity by the bootstraps in the few remaining months of the 2019 election campaign.

If one uses Twitter to sample the general sentiment of the Filipino public, you’d think “press freedom” is top of mind for the majority of Filipinos. With the shrillness of the rhetoric of “activists” that populate social media, one would be forgiven in thinking that “press freedom” is the game-changing issue that will determine this…

The latest Pulse Asia senatorial preference survey for January 2019 reveals yet again that the Opposition led by the Liberal Party (a.k.a. the Yellowtards) continue to miss the mark.

No exception. All politicians claim to be and promise to be honest and truthful during election campaigns. This, of course, changes when they win, but what is important is the perception of impeccable integrity they bring across in that all-important campaign leading to the elections. In that sense, the Yellowtard camp is in trouble. Their…

The Liberal Party’s new campaign slogan is that they are now “listening to the people”. Oh really? That’s an admission they weren’t listening the whole time they were in power. Let’s test it. Can LP please answer why they violated the rule on using savings to procure the untested Dengvaxia vaccine? Why did they ditch…

So the Liberal Party reportedly “now ‘listens’ to the people it once ignored”. This admission raises an important question: What served as input into their vision and governance platform to begin with? Surely, in a democracy, political parties are guided by their constituents’ priorities. But how could the LP have known what these priorities were…

Yellowtards are of the belief that the numerous journalism awards won by journalist-turned-politician Jiggy Manicad are no longer valid testaments to his professional chops. “Human rights” honcho Caloy Conde, for example, believes that the “100 journalism awards [Manicad] received don’t mean shit the moment [he] misused them to support this madman [current Philippine President Rodrigo…
