Ping Lacson likely to run for president, Isko Moreno still logical choice for @1Sambayan

My sources have confirmed that there have been talks between Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Senator Ping Lacson but these are stalled because both want to be President. This makes the Lacson and Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto tandem a possibility. The source indicated that Lacson is running, Isko or no Isko. Domagoso is the […]

Yellowtards cheering PDP-Laban infighting to distract Filipinos from hopeless Opposition prospects for 2022

The editor-in-chief of the Star is all riled up. If you believe what she’s writing then nothing good came out in five years and it’s all been killings, corruption and cronyism. In her piece “The Duterte playbook”, Ana Marie Pamintuan asserts how, following the ascent to power of President Rodrigo Duterte in 2016, the Philippines […]

Leni Robredo is so dumb that she INSISTS on being the Opposition presidential bet for 2022

In an interview with “journalist” Barnaby Lo on Viewpoint last night, “vice president” Leni Robredo confirmed that she personally believes that she should be the single presidential candidate of the Opposition for the 2022 elections. On #Viewpoint moments ago… Me: “So the major factor in deciding to run for president is if it’s only you […]

Mad scramble amongst oligarchs for influence over the Philippine Opposition is all about natural gas

A political realignment in the offing as the offshoot of the South China Sea dispute? Iris Gonzales in a PhilSTAR report notes, “Market players are now looking more closely at listed oil and gas companies that could possibly benefit from the entry of Davao’s Dennis ‘DAU’ Uy in Malampaya, the crown jewel in the energy […]

Why does @1Sambayan need to wait until June 12?

Is this some sort of drumroll tactic? Opposition newsletter Rappler “reports” that top Opposition coalition of the moment, 1Sambayan “would unveil on Independence Day its official list of nominees for president, vice president, and senators whom the group would endorse in the 2022 elections.” It will also “ask Filipinos to vote online and help them […]

Former coup plotters possibly in bed with Salim Group businesses could be backing Opposition bets for 2022

It would appear that MVP really has an axe to grind against the Duterte administration. The linkages are hard to ignore. Magdalo is the new RAM with the difference being it has been able to establish a stronger political base. Manila Times columnist Bobi Tiglao today asks, “Trillanes’ Magdalo putschists behind retired generals’ anti-Duterte group?”. […]

Silence following Trillanes’s @1Sambayan coup vs Robredo bodes ill for Opposition prospects in 2022

I don’t get it. Despite their best efforts in the last five years and with no clear uptick in her approval and trust ratings, they still won’t stop singing paeans of praise to Vice President Leni Robredo. Former Inquirer editor John Nery, for example, in his piece “VP Leni’s crucial pandemic response”, writes… It was […]

CamSur beckons: Leni Robredo dishonestly leading Opposition on with her uncertain presidential bid

For once, the good Professor is a source of valuable information. In his Manila Times piece today “Hot and spicy Camarines Sur politics”, Antonio “Tonton” Contreras writes… If there is any appearance of hesitation on [Vice President Leni] Robredo’s part, it is probably a ruse by the political opposition. A premature announcement by Robredo would […]

Carpio-Robredo tandem in the cards for Yellowtard push into Malacanang in 2022

Yellowidiots exist in their own ecosystem. Former President Fidel Ramos won as President with only 23% of the vote. Yet they claimed that it was the majority. Never mind that the Marcos vote was split between Danding Cojuangco and Imelda Marcos. In 1998, Joseph “Erap” Estrada won with the largest margin in PH electoral history. […]

Election 2022 deadline for filing of candidacy looms: Opposition growing DESPERATE

You would think that if Manila Times columnist Antonio Contreras is of this belief then he should at least stop being petty in his criticism of Duterte. In his recent piece “Political opposition is to blame”, Contreras writes about today’s dysfunctional Opposition and how it had foolishly wasted time and money on a dud… It […]
