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 […]

Leni Robredo is the Philippines’ biggest gaslighter — probably suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder

I thought this was a column piece of substance considering its author is a former Secretary of Foreign Affairs. In “The social media imperative” published on the Philippine Star, Roberto Romulo writes of “trolls”… “It was these ‘warriors’ on social media who delivered the presidency to Duterte, who won with over 16.6 million votes–convincingly and […]

Shallow leadership pool: F. Sionil Jose endorses Carpio-Gibo team but Marcos-Duterte tandem looks like a winner for now

The national artist for literature F. Sionil Jose qualifies his praise of Duterte for his detractors in his piece today, “Wisdom from my doctors”. They read, but didn’t comprehend his words. This is par for the course in this day and age where a long read is disdained and even if read, the comprehension quotient […]

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 […]

State of the 2022 race: Opposition can only watch as admin allies dominate

One of the best political pundits who is also a political survivor from the time of Cory up to the present. In his Manila Standard piece “The party’s over”, Lito Banayo writes… On the political front, the party is also over for the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino, soon to sunder into different power blocs, the Bong […]

Leni Robredo’s pandemic response “projects” are not scaleable and are mainly for show

No one has noticed how most of the “projects” of the Office of the Vice President (OVP) can’t be scaled. In short, it’s only good for PR and projection. If Robredo really is a servant-leader as she claims, the strategies her staff thinks of should be scaleable. In this case, her office only focuses on […]

A petition for current “vice president” Leni Robredo to run for President in 2022 launched 4 days ago is being handily buried by a petition for Leni Robredo to retire from politics that was launched just 15 hours ago. The petition Encourage VP Leni Robredo to RUN FOR PRESIDENT for the 2022 PH National Elections! […]
