Sass Rogando Sasot to Leila De Lima: Why not name Supreme Court justices in your list?

The following is an open letter from Sass Rogando Sasot posted on her Facebook page. Sasot was summarily named by jailed Senator Leila De Lima in a list of people she asserts were involved in her “persecution”. De Lima is hoping that the people in that list would be banned from entering the United States […]

Only a Philippine court can decide what happens next to Leila De Lima

US President Donald Trump recently passed a law banning Philippine government officials found to be involved in the arrest and detention of Senator Leila De Lima. But that is based on the assumption that this arrest and detention is wrong. Who decides whether De Lima’s arrest and detention are wrong? The Americans? Leila De Lima? […]

Philippine Supreme Court shows a lack of balls in its inability to decide on the Great Electoral Fraud of 2016

The Supreme Court, final arbiter of all legal debates of the land, seems to be stepping back from its important role in Philippine government. After weeks of delaying its decision on whether to dismiss or continue hearing the electoral protest of former senator Bongbong Marcos, it finally came up with a decision to not decide […]

The only way to commemorate Ninoy Aquino’s “martyrdom” FOR REAL is to find out WHO murdered him

Despite two big Aquino presidencies, that of the late Cory Aquino from 1986 to 1992 and then her son’s, Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, from 2010 to 2016, the brains behind the murder of former Senator Benigno ‘Ninoy’ Aquino Jr had never been identified.

Leni Robredo must pay the price if found guilty of sedition!

As expected, supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo are dismissing the recent charges of sedition against her as mere “harassment”. A group called “Team Philippines” are even mounting a petition to the Department of Justice to drop the charges. It seems these people feel sorry for Robredo because she looks like a damsel in distress […]

Chel Diokno is trying to save face, but it is too late

Perhaps this is really how “human rights” lawyers work. They make victims of people who never saw themselves as victims to begin with. These parasitical members of the legal profession make people believe they are “victims” all for the purpose of turning them into “clients” who fit their nebulous “human rights” narrative. Chel Diokno fits […]

Report by the Philippine Coast Guard paves way for action on Reed Bank “ramming” incident!

The Inquirer highlights the key message of the report… By failing to extend assistance, the Chinese vessel failed to comply with the regulations of the United Nation Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which obliges masters of ships to provide assistance […]

MORE countries should withdraw from the International Criminal Court!

The concept of an “international criminal court” is flawed at the core. Thus it is quite unfortunate that the International Criminal Court (ICC) is named and chartered as such. The presumptuous pomposity with which the ICC carries out its “mission” today has thus become a sad international punchline. To presume to be a court outside […]

The International Criminal Court should butt out of the Philippines’ internal affairs

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 […]

Why is former Philippine First Lady Imelda Marcos not in jail?

Former First Lady Imelda Marcos is not in jail because “the Supreme Court’s Third Division denied for lack of merit the petition for certiorari filed in 2008 by the late Solicitor General Frank Chavez.” Furthermore… “Petitioner having failed to establish the basis for this court to evaluate and review the facts in this case the […]
