Who Killed Christine

Image
The new year 2021 brought us a new level of hope and ecstacy, that finally we bid farewell to the pains and sufferings of the year 2020. That's all we thought. But, the new year was a bang!  We're greeted with a sad news about rape with murder of a Flight Attendant in a hotel in Makati as the country and the world celebrated the new year. Well, that's the initial findings and pronouncement of the PNP and was believed by the mother of the victim, and including us. Other people including celebrities and netizens were quick to condemn the incident and called on the perpetrators about the rape issue. Then the PNP declared "case closed" real quick when the suspects were identified and later on surfaced to answer the allegations of crime. Those suspects who came out are the closest friends of the victim and some of them belong to a high profile family; as the son of a known celebrity and businessman. We've all believed that it was a rape with murder case, until the

Duterte Mentality and the Police Brutality

Image
  I've watched the video and you may have watched it too. A simple confrontation that ended with a big bang over two heads of an innocent Mother and son.  The Mother was seen to have a tight embrace, trying to protect her son from immediate danger. That was a Mother's love and care. That was a Mother's instinct. And in very brief moment, they got shot and they're dead. It's a sad start of holidays for the Filipinos. We may not have lost a very special person or a hero, but we have lost two lives; a loving Mother and her son, in the hands of a Father and daughter tandem. We got emotional and very angry on the sad fate of the Mother and son, and we're quick to condemn the actions of the Father who's a policeman and her spoiled daughter whom have triggered the situation to have ended in bloodshed. That's gruesome! That's double murder! A Police officer must have higher sense of self control and observe maximum tolerance at all times. A good Police offic

VP Leni Versus Bongbong Marcos' Unlimited Loss

Image
Leni Robredo has nothing to prove since her declaration of winning as the Philippine Vice President despite of the many false accusations and electoral protests against her. VP Leni was chosen by the majority of the Filipino people to lead the country as the 2nd most powerful Government position. It's her destiny, and she has proven her worth with highest honor and dignity. With the electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos, once again VP Leni won not only once, not only twice, but thrice. No matter how hard they try to destroy VP Leni, still she's unbeatable and unbreakable. She's the mightiest VP in the Philippine history and always staying above the controversy. VP Leni is the subject of a continuous disinformation campaign and malicious hate speeches by the paid trolls. She was was punched and crushed heavily, yet she's still strong, healthy and mighty. Her greatness truly emanates from within. With her strong conviction, she's still reigning like a true Queen. Why i

Typhoon Ulysses and VP Leni Please

  We Filipinos are suffering from the worst effect of a natural calamity. From the super typhoon Rolly in the Bicol Region; the severe flooding in Marikina and Rizal Province; and just recently, a sad fate from a massive flooding brought by typhoon Ulysses in Cagayan Valley Region. Thousands of families have not yet recovered from the recent onslaught of  super typhoon Rolly, yet we're now seeing another Region submerged in water. For such unexpected event, the Cagayanos were almost left drowned and dying when the rest of the Filipinos were asleep peacefully on the evening of Friday the 13th until the dawn of the 14th of November. The people of Cagayan Valley is crying for help. Little children were reported to be almost carried away by the heavy current of flash floods. We heard not much report, but the first to respond is our Vice President, Leni Robredo. VP Leni was fully awake to hear and respond to the cry for help of the Cagayanos. She collaborated with the proper agencies to

Super Typhoon Rolly and the Mighty VP Leni

The Bicolanos are strong people. They have shown resilience despite the many typhoons that hit the region. The Bicolanos are disciplined; they know the essence of disaster preparedness and have a sense of community. That's a commendable trait we can learn from them.  Even before the super typhoon Rolly would hit the Bicol Region on November 1, 2020, we've seen how the Bicolanos and their local leaders would prepare. With clear communication and mobilization, they were able to achieve their goal in disaster preparedness and resilience, incomparable with the preparedness during super typhoon Yolanda in November 2013. Super typhoon Rolly had a strength comparable to super typhoon Yolanda, but with good leadership and governance, the Bicolanos had a lower reported casualty of 22 deaths as compared to 6,340 deaths with super typhoon Yolanda. The Bicolanos have learned from the devastation brought by super typhoon Yolanda, and so their disaster preparedness include early evacuation w

The Terrors of Anti-Terror Law

Image
Terrorism must be condemned. That's becoming our fundamental duty as a lawful citizen of the Republic. With the rising occurrence of terrorist attacks, killing hundreds to several thousands of people, there's no mercy, but to face its consequence with fairness and justice.  That's the power of the Anti-Terrorism Law signed by President Duterte. Its primary intention is to identify, arrest and to penalize an individual or a group perceived to be an enemy of the state. However, some provisions on the 'Implementing Rules and Regulations' of the Anti-terrorism Law might be unconstitutional. With false perception and wrongful judgment, anyone can be unjustly accused before the jury of the  9-member Anti-Terror Council acting like a judicial court.   How is that constitutional? You'll be served a warrantless arrest with detention in jail for up to 14 days and a possible extension of 10 days for a total  and maximum of 24 days in jail without filing a single case in co

The Honorable and Regaining One's Honor

If there's one thing that could easily destroy one's integrity, trust and loyalty, that's about not honoring a commitment. That's a hard lesson learned by the hardworking gentleman from Taguig,  Alan Peter Cayetano. We've witnessed how a feisty Speaker would give a good fight up to the last end of his reign. That drama however, created the sudden rise to popularity and power of the gentleman from Marinduque,  Lord Allan Velasco. He received warm support from the leaders in the House and the Filipino people who has no tolerance for a show of disrespect and dishonorable action. The 2020 battle between Alan vs. Allan. Finally it ended with a peaceful and graceful acceptance of Alan Peter Cayetano. That's just a week-time blockbuster scene of Cayetano's clinging to power; declaring his resignation, gaining House support for a continuous leadership, and moving for a month-long suspension for the deliberation of national budget. A dangerous move... We, the Filipin
