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 […]

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 […]

Opposition still FOOLISHLY betting on Leni Robredo despite “narrow path” to 2022 election win

Referring to Inquirer former editor John Nery in his piece today “The opposition’s narrow, viable path”, I agree with the narrow but where’s the viability? Nery’s prognosis banks on the imagined gravitas he imagines is lent by the usual suspects to the Yellowidiots’ “cause”… At the Media and Politics Forum my class hosted last Friday, […]

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 […]

#GetRealPhilippines is a TROVE of election analysis going back to 2010

Election fever is officially kicked off and everyone is locked-and-loaded for the media circus coming to town — everyone, that is, but the Yellowtard- and communist-led Philippine Opposition who to, this day, can only hope for a “maybe” (as former Inquirer editor John Nery puts it in his piece today) as far as bagging a […]

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 […]

COVID-19 is not as big an election issue as the Philippine Opposition think

The Opposition repeatedly made an issue of the President’s statements with regard to the Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine. The first claim was it was more expensive than Western vaccines which provided the perception of anomalies in procurement. The second point was efficacy. It was supposed to be largely ineffective in its intended purpose. Then came the […]

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 […]
