Someone tagged me just now about a counter-rally on Wednesday morning of Bonifacio Day by supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte.
It is the very same day that those opposed to the burial of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos are set to stage a rally at the People Power Monument in the late afternoon.
It intrigued me because the call to join the counter-rally came from no less than Veronica “Kitty” Duterte, the youngest daughter of President Duterte. Kitty posted on her Facebook public page – “Makakapunta po ba kayo dito?” (Can you come to the rally?)
UPDATE: as of Nov. 28, 2016 5:09 PM. I stand corrected. This page is not controlled by Kitty Duterte but by her supporters. I apologize to Kitty for thinking she controlled this page. However, the tone of the posts mimic the way a young girl would post. Why use the president’s daughter to post very politically charged stuff?
UPDATE as of 11:49 pm: Some commenters on Twitter said that Duterte supporters and not Kitty Duterte run her public page. If this is true, is this being done with Kitty’s consent? Do the posts have her permission?
I had checked the contents of Kitty Duterte’s Instagram page and noted that the photos posted on this Facebook page were not the same as those on her Instagram. Some of the photos posted on the https://www.facebook.com/KittyVeronDuterteOfficial/ are quite personal. Meaning, you would have to get to her up close in her school or inside a “fitting room” of her dressmaker in order to get those kinds of photographs.
There is another Kitty Duterte Official page – https://www.facebook.com/KittyDuterteOfficial1/ – and it’s even more political. In addition, whoever is the Admin even posts – “Walang basagan ng trip. “P***eta ka.” – in connection with the testimony of Senator Leila de Lima’s ex-lover Ronnie Dayan.
From what I recall of my history, no other minor child of a Philippine president since 1946 was ever this politically involved after the parent’s assumption to the presidency. Sure, Kris Aquino campaigned for her mother Corazon. But after Cory became president, Kris did not involve herself directly with politics. Rather, she involved herself with showbiz and – as I recall at that time – with her schooling and budding romance with actor Robin Padilla.
In contrast, Kitty Duterte (who was 12 years old when her father was elected last May), has been quite active in politics through her official Facebook public page. To see, click on this link.
It’s quite refreshing to see someone involved at such a young age. Just like the students at St. Scholastica rallying against the burial of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos. The danger, however, is that unscrupulous persons may use her for their political and financial ends since it is quite clear that Kitty has the president’s ear.
I find nothing wrong, however, with a young girl expressing her political opinions. Just like the students at St. Scholastica did by rallying against the burial of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Having ascertained that this is a Fan Page for Kitty, I am even more disturbed that the Admins of this page are using it as if she is the one posting’ As if she had something to do with it. The danger is that unscrupulous persons may use Kitty, the president’s daughter, for their political and financial ends since it is quite clear that Kitty has the president’s ear.
I remember, while watching Duterte’s miting de avance at Rizal Park, Kitty Duterte approaching her father onstage and whispering to him to mention someone or wind up his rambling speech. While the audience laughed and thought it very cute, I thought – as a political reporter – that this signaled to everyone present in Luneta that night or watching on TV that Kitty Duterte was a power broker.
It’s a big burden to put on the shoulders of a very young girl. In the end, it’s up to her mother, Honeylet and her father, the President, to decide whether to caution her or to urge her to continue what she is doing.
Finally, I can’t help but ask this question – why is the Fan Page of Kitty Duterte the one calling out the troops and not the more known and more mature Duterte supporters?
We are entering a social media era where netizens compare Mocha Uson to Joan of Arc, complete with tarp layout. There you have it folks! Now what’s next? Mocha Uson TV channel with weekly live coverage of suspected drug users/pushers/lords being piled up and burned alive perhaps?
The Observer says
May isang tanong ako.
Bakit palaging nagbabanta at nananakot si Duterte. Pag may bagay na hindi niya gusto, babantaan niya yong tao o mga taong involved at may kasamang pananakot. Katulad ng pagbabanta niya sa mga human rights activists, here is the link: http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/849192/duterte-threatens-rights-activists
Bakit laging idinadaan niya sa pananakot sa mga tao pag ang mga tao ay sumasalungat sa kanya. Tanda ito ng pagiging diktador, kaya wag tayong padadala sa pananakot niya. Pag bumuka na ang bibig ni Duterte, lahat na lang ng sasabihin may kasamang pagbabanta. Sorry na lang sa kanya, hindi lahat ng tao ay taga Davao, na kaya niyang busalan. Sana dumating na ang panahon na ang mga tao ay pagod na sa kanyang pananakot.
pero mas sorry naman sayo, bakit ka naman matatakot kung wala kang ginagawang masama? at ano masama sa pananakot nya? sya ang Pangulo, natural lang sa kanya ang takutin kayong mga salot ng lipunan, mga mapag gawa ng kasamaan, mga druglord, mga kriminal. dahil iyan ang kanyang ipinangako sa tunay na maraming mga MAMAMAYANG PILIPINO, sorry to say again, hindi ka malamang kasama dun, hindi ka binubusalan, kundi ay pinalalantad ka, kung ikaw ay isang masamang tao, tumigil ka na sa gawain mong masama, dahil kung hindi nga, ay tiyak ang kalalagyan mo. bakit ka matatakot sa pananakot ng pangulo kung wala ka namang katiwaliang ginagawa,,,
Sino ba ang may sabi na natatakot si @The Observer sa pananakot ni PD30?
Iba ang pagtutol sa takot at napakalaki ng pagkakaiba ng salot sa lipunan sa pagkakaroon ng paninindigang may prinsipyo. Ilang inosenteng tao na ang nadamay sa ngalan ng War on Drugs?
Eto ang kasinungalingan sa War on Drugs ng iyong pangulo: Ginagamit lang niya ito upang iwaksi ang atensyon ng taumbayan sa kriminalidad na kanyang nagawa at ginagawa.- ang mga EJK sa Davao at ngayon sa buong bansa
– ang sarili niyan corruption (BPI, etc)
– ang pakikipagsabwatan sa mga pinapaboran niyang drug lord
– ang walang batayan atkarumaldumal na pagdidiin sa isang inosenteng tao sa droga
– ang pagbebenta ng Pilipinas sa Tsina
– Ang pagpapalaya ng mga plunderers ng bansa kapalit ng suporta sa kampanya
Noong panahon ng eleksyon, ang tawag sa sumuporta kay D30 ay botante. Pero kung sumusorta pa kayo sa kanya hanggang ngayon, ang tawag na sa inyo ay collaborator at kasama sa dapat managot kapag nagtagumpay muli ang katinuan sa ating lipunan.
Sang ayon ako kay PD30 na dapat sugpuin ang mga salot ng lipunan. Pero hindi mo ba nakikita na kayo iyon?
Kung nakikinabang ka sa kasalukuyang administrasyon, maaaring hindi mo nga ito maunawaan. Walang punto na makipagtalo sa iyo.
hoy, ismail, sawa na ako sa pananakot ni digong, lumang tugtugin na yan. dapat may panibagong statement siya upang hindi antokin kami. from I will kill, to I will kiss you! iisa-isahin ko kayo, I will kiss you, all of you. I am the father of the nation, I will kiss you.
puno ng hatred ang stance ni digong, e magpapasko na. sa advent na ito, e dapat goodwill oriented na siya. I will kiss you! give me christmas gift of not doing drugs, and I will kiss you. no bombings and no killings, and I will kiss you.
@ismail, bakit dito ka sa blog na ito maglabas ng sama ng iyong loob. masyado ka namang mali!
it’s advent time, maghanap nalang kayo ng advenet recollection
The Observer says
Agree ako sa sinabi mong bakit ako matatakot kung wala namang akong ginagawang masama. Agree din ako sa “kayong mga salot ng lipunan” ang matakot.”
Ah, supporter ka pala ng pananakot.
‘May isang tanong ako.
Bakit palaging nagbabanta at nananakot si Duterte.’
‘bakit ka naman matatakot kung wala kang ginagawang masama?’
Ang sagot sa isang tanong ay isang rin tanong!
Na sagot ba ang tanong? Hindi. Ano ang kalabasan ng sumagot?
Aiwan ko. Baka isang talong!

drill down says
just typical scammer logic. it sounds so safe, lulls one into letting his guards down by messing up his mind into thinking poorly.
pananakot ang management style ni digong. after nearly 6months of pananakot, people are starting to become immune to his pananakot, and wanted out. only those that mostly want to dip their snouts into the kaban ng bayan are coming in, get rich quick and suffer the consequences.
sa sobrang pananakot, nagkasakit uli si digong, natablan sa sariling pananakot! his heart overburdened, his head tadtad ng migraine. his mind, if his mind is computer he needs newer motherboard with faster connection and better adaptability.
digong is in a pickle. polis women will soon get tired of having their bottoms spanked each time he lost his temper, and hit him back. palo-palo him with their batons, stick chewing gums in his ears! force him to sit on durian! help!
The Observer says
Sige, galitin pa more si Duterte, baka matitigil na ang kanyang pananakot.
Palagi ako may nababasa sa news na pananakot nya, bukod pa sa “usual” na kill, kill, kill.
Ito ay senyales na hindi sya natanggap ng pagkatalo, ng sagot na hindi at rejection. Kaya lahat dadaanin sa pananakot… or pambu-bully.
kaya, sagot ko po kay digong, merry christmas po sa yo, sir, and love yu too.
this christmas season, I’ll try to tone down hatred, give lots of smile and warm greetings. love yu all.
Nakakatawa ka naman masyado ng palasak or in English “overused word” na ang Diktador na favorite nyong gamitin para takutin ang mga tao para magalit sa kasalukuyang pangulo sino kaya ang mukhang nananakot di ba kayo, marami ng Pilipino ang nagising at malamang hindi ka isa doon, ang pagbabago at pagunlad ng Pilipinas ay hindi lang sa salita kundi sa gawa na ngayon ay nakikita at nararamdaman na ng maraming mahirap na Pilipino dahil sa pamumuno ng Pangulo ngayon. Pero hindi gustong ibalita ng mga Dilawang katulad mo na main stream media. Nakakaawa kayo. Bulag sa talagang katotohanan.
Eh yung salitang “I will kill you”, di ba pananakot din?
At mas mabigat pa ito kasi nasa kapangyarihan ang nagsabi at may kakayahan na gawin..
At ang naniniwala dito at natutuwa pa sa mga ganitong salita ay mas nakakaawa.
hic, re-info, digong can be love dictador, make love not war! love one another, and dont do drugs. love and respect one another this christmas season, exchange pleasantries, smile and be happy. give handshakes not packet of shabu. smile and be kind, smile cost nothing so spread it, hic.
love is better than hatred, let christmas season be a season of giving, give love not death. hic, I’m happy, happy, happy, my brother saw his ex-classmate sa rally today, they so hated each other, but then the idiots waved and smiled at each other. merry christmas kuno. at hindi sila nagpatayan.
I’m thinking tuloy, why cant we have a love dictador? one that inspires trust and love and understanding. let us have a messiah of peace, not of death and misery.
The Observer says
Para sabihin ko sa iyo, hindi ako dilawan. Supporter ako ng katotohanan. Ikaw ang bulag sa katotohanan. Tingnan mo nga 5000+ na ang pinatay simula ng manalo ang kasalukuyang presidente. Mga mahihirap pa kamong pamilya ang mga biktima na walang kayang ihingi ng hustisya ang pagkamatay. Magbasa ka naman at lumabas sa cubicle mo.

Certain high ranking members of the pnp are in connivance with president rodrigo duterte in planning the bombings in metro manila then put the blame on the moslem. Last august they planned a similar plot but that information was leaked by a mole hence placed on hold.
The objective of the said bombings is to justify the declaration of martial law. It is the same plot used by then dictator marcos who staged a fake ambush on the then defense chief enrile.
People in the intelligence community are well aware of this plot by duterte and company. The demoralized men in uniform perceive duterte as dumb, brash and narcissistic Scuttle butt of a coup plot is popular among the junior officers. Brainstorming indicates the nod of the old timers.
The uncontested unanimous decision is that president duterte and his cohorts will be on trial by a military tribunal and a “death by hanging for treason and genocide” will be the outcome if proven guilty.
where in the world did you get that info?
No answer yet? Its already 8:50 P.M.!
Baka moderate nightmare experience. And maybe went back to sleep to finish the long trial by the military tribunal.

@gumisingkabayan kaya mayroong naka headline sa balita na: Maute Group behind attack on Duterte advance team –military?
– See more at: http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/590757/news/nation/maute-group-behind-attack-on-duterte-advance-team-military#sthash.xVOhcAIH.dpuf
ang sabi iyong ied ay similar doon bombing sa may us embassy. similar ied din sa davao bombing na ang suspect nila na hindi naman napatunayan ay member ng maute group.
alam nyo po kung sina ang may sobrang hatred sa mga kano, wants the kano out of our country and even tried to stop kanos having military exercises with our soldatens. so, natural progression lang yong takutin ang mga kano at maglagay ng bomb malapit sa americal embassy sa roxas blvd. at yong identikit kuno ng suspect ay mukhang may wig! at yong fringe o bangs pa niya ay gaya ni dr jose rizal! curving.
maute this, and maute that, no love po ako sa kapolisan who are now imitating the maute group.
at yong ambush kuno sa presidential guards, fake yata, dahil ang mga taong nakatira malapit sa ambush site ay walang mga mauteng nakita kundi mga sundalo lamang. ah, parang nag-emergency drill lang yata ang mga sundalo natin, so in case may mangyari talaga, they would know what to do.
that planted ied in roxas blvd tried to be dual purpose: takutin ang taumbayan, at ang mga kano too. sorry to say, ang pananakut na yan failed.

ganyan ang style ng mga DIKTAODR – tatakutin at tatakutin ang mga tao para lahat susunod sa kanya. Look at what they are doing to Sen. de Lima – kaya tuloy yong mga ibang sanador, takot umalalay kay Sen. de Lima baka makalkal pa ang kanilang mga itinatago…
kaya brace yourselves for MARTIAL LAW that’s worse than Marcos style dahil yan na ang patutunguhan… kung hindi pakinggan ng Diyos ang ating mga dasal.!!!

NHCP’s Diokno resigns over Marcos burial
“The burial of Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani is wrong; it denies our history, erases the memory of lives lost and destroyed, mocks the collective action we took to oust the dictator, and denigrates the value of our struggle for freedom,” she said.
Diokno also slammed President Rodrigo Duterte, who ordered Marcos’ burial, and the Supreme Court, which voted 9-5 in favor of the interment after petitions were filed to challenge Duterte’s order.
“At this moment in our history, every voice counts, and I wish to place mine on the side of history: not the history that the Duterte government ignores, but the history that beckons our people to demand justice that even the highest court of the land will not bestow,” Diokno said.
“Notwithstanding the narrow view adopted by 9 members of the Supreme Court, President Duterte could have taken the higher ground. But he chose not to. Worse, he justifies his ‘legalistic’ action by claiming, falsely, that ‘there’s no study, no movie about it [Marcos’s record as a leader], just the challenges and allegations of the other side.'”
Good for the person of DIOKNO. The real worst is still to come.
The ominous signs are already here to burn our society.
Something must give to stop all these EJKs. Atbpa. Many are hoodwinked talaga.
The evil game is still corruption.
from manilabulletin 23 november 2016: sc declines to act on motions against Marcos burial
According to reports, two SC justices –Diosdado M. Peralta and Estela B. PerlasBernabe – are on wellness leave.
Justice Peralta was the writer of the SC decision issued on Nov. 8 that allowed the burial of Marcos at the LNMB. Eight other justices, including Bernabe, joined in the decision.
sino kaya sa kanilang dalawa ang ka meeting ni imee marcos outside the philippines habang naka wellness leave? ano kaya ang kanilang pinag-usapan? puede din itong post ni parekoy below:
“Panelo hastily convened with Bongbong about his election protest and how to move the planned date of the decision of PET. Millions of dollars are now at play to buy the Vice Presidency.”
tuloy parin ba nila ang pagpapalibing kay makoy sa lnmb inspite of nation wide rally?
I just think the two are really sick.
and dalawang justices na yan ay nag-sympathy sickness lang, inatake kasi ng puso si digong (I think, it might have been a coup).
I feel like you are more concerned that using the child as a front is working and not that it is done. Although I do agree with how they named and wrote in the page misleading and improper and should be stopped. They should at least incorporate in the name that it is a “fan page” as ordinary people would be easily misled by naming it as an “official page”. Although, you madam, isn’t an ordinary person but a journalist, who should know better than to rely on a title and not the full context. Also, I personally don’t have anything against you but I wish you respond to disrespectful comments here in a more professional and dignified manner. Resorting to equally rude responses will only elevate an otherwise harsh and unfounded accusations against your values.
Did you use the word “rude”?
Why, did I respond like Duterte?
excusey moi, sisingit lang po ako rito. A, some of the disrespectful comments na naririto sa blog na ito are sarcastic in nature. sarcasm is an art that many here have mastered. it’s funny and may sound irrelevant and disrespectful to you who is not endowed with the gift, but to many, it’s an art worth propagating. cartooning baga. caricaturing too.
where would newspapers be without cartoons and caricatures?
bduts is so fond of pu…..i.a.
for many the pres who is our supreme leader and our top ambassador to the globe isn’t so rude kaya?
di mo pa alam yun?
pinootah ang papah, pinootah si barack, si ban ki, sino pa ang hindi?
simply and oftenly bursts into pootah..i.. mo, papatayin kita, notwithstanding who he wants to address it.
follow the leader tayo di ba?he is our supreme idol, err model, err or, errrrrr attic na ako ngaun…
i am forced to emulate our leader, p.i. talaga…
@ A says
Agree, we must uphold our values. But it is not Raissa’s job to be a GMRC teacher.
However, it is Farinas’ job to make sure his colleagues behave appropriately.
Did you send similar comments to Farinas for the grossly indecent, unparliamentary conduct of our congressmen and women?
How about to Roque, et al?
HOW ABOUT TO RUDE DUTERTE?
HOw about to Bato, a Mr. congeniality candidate, who projects a fraternizing relationship with Dayan and Espinosa? Paiyak-Iyak pa dahil sa shame kuno that was brought about by the mishandled pre-meditated killing of Espinosa….who confirms that Marcos is in the narcolist, yet re-in states Marcos at the order of somebody higher up?
It would be most sincerely appreciated if you could send appropriate messages to them. That will be most admirable. Thank you.
Si farinas ang pasimuno. Bakit job nya yun sa mga sumunod sa kanya?
farinho sila lahat!
I do believe that it doesn’t mean that people are rude or everyone is that it is already a license to be the same. Because that will only end up validating the president’s and everyone else’s otherwise unacceptable acts. Then there will be a cycle of rudeness with everyone alleging that it’s the other person that started it– that gave them the right to be the same. Not a good start if you want people to be more polite and respectful of other people’s rights I think.
Also, to be clear, it is not the post that I find rude but how Raissa reply’s to comments– even the non-offensive but opposing her opinions ones.
diyos ko po. you don’t even want me to reply in my own blog.
Does that mean you can’t even try to be nicer? Because that is all I’m asking. For you to be a better example so sa validity of your words will be better appreciated and not drown in a back and forth of insult. :(
Go somewhere else.
I am very nice, compared to you know who.
@A, and if you don’t think this is sick using a child pictures and all, to send messages to anti govt supporters, means the problem is with you.
Values? You value your twisted ass, screaming about your values when we are just commenting on the use of a child to score a war on politics.
The full context of the page is about improper and misleading use of the page through the eyes of a child manipulated by whom… again Dutertes.
If you are so aggrieved and dignified, make the right move, report it to FB, to the child’s school, to the Dep. of Social Welfare.
As you say, elevate it , escalate it!
IMO, Raissa doesn’t even have to apologized for she just pointed some underhanded tactics in your camps…. using a 12 year old girl.
You don’t come here proselytizing.
I’m saying!!! It’s sad that people SUDDENLY COMING TO THIS SITE are defending this sick twisted shit!
using a child to do dirty men’s business is despicable!
I’m confused. I believe I expressed my agreement with Raissa’s point that the child’s name for personal agenda. I just don’t appreciate how condescending she could be that it distracts from the main issue. And I do believe that it doesn’t mean that people are rude or everyone is that it is already a license to be the same. Because that will only end up validating the president’s and everyone else’s. Then a cycle of rudeness with everyone alleging that it’s the other person that started it. Not a good start if you want people to be more polite and respectful of other people’s rights I think.
I’m sorry if you think I’m being “yabangski”. I’m just an ordinary citizen that would like to start a cycle of kindness and would like to appeal to those who have a bigger and more heard voice that I– you– to influence it.
Because you speak of being “polite” when the person you are defending is the king of rudeness.
And your tone is so condescending.
I never defended Duterte. I believe in my other comment I even said that we shouldn’t validate his rudeness by being one ourselves. Because I don’t appreciate his mouth as much as how I’m disappointed with people (even those who are oppose him) who are starting to pick up after him and how he talks. I apologize if you feel like I’m being condescending but I genuinely believe that I do not have the voice to effect at least an attitude of taking the higher road from people. I am afterall a nobody and you on the other hand, have now that power.
Ving C. says
Dutertards deplore the joining of St. Scholastica students in Anti-Marcos rallies saying they were “used” by school authorities. And yet, dutertards have no qualms using a minor child, and the president’s daughter at that, for their nefarious political ends. Such hypocrites.
Ving C. says
“Dela Rosa: I got orders to reinstate Espinosa protector”
if bato is uncomfortable with the order, he can refuse it.
incidentally, what’s the point of bato being chief of polis if he cannot say no, now and then?
mukhang yes man tuloy siya, and fibbing.
akala ko makikipagsuntukan si bato and assert his own authority, yon pala’y hindi. one word at yoku agad, made to about face kaagad, nabugbug sa hangin – what a mouse of a man he is!
unlike de lima, bato has yet to find his balls. he cannot argue the merits of his sacking marcos, how it would boost police confidence and credibility of the drug war.
bato’s promise of safety to kerwin maybe in jeopardy now that marcos is back. kerwin’s life maybe in danger, he might even be shot dead with the same gun that killed his father.
then, there is dayan. dayan should prepare himself for a bullet between the eyes, gangman, gangman, style.
these men’s failure to pin down de lima will cost them more than the hairs on their backs.
ngayon, alam ko na kung bakit naiyak si batu…
Mataas kay Chief Bato? guess: DND Sec?
The buck stops with Duterte. Who is the narco protector now?
@Maxima. . . He’s more a harried true man! Buck stops at him said he.
That is what his wife trained him to say. 😊
Sorry if it’s been covered already but in relation to who is the drug protector, what happened to the issue that there were two senators implicated by Kirwin, according to Pakyaw? I did not watch the hearing in its entirety thus might have missed it being addressed. But had it been addressed, I would have read about such in the papers days after. But, media and senators seem to be silent on it. Can Pakyaw not count past one? Or is the unnamed senator protected as well?
Why is there no pressing on this issue, the way De5 is being pressed? The silence is deafening.
I’m wondering about the same question.
Someone must be sitting their fat behind on that lid.
Duterte has second thoughts of Bongbong being VP
Just talked to an insider who knows what happens in Duterte’s inner circle from Davao Faction. He corrected the info I got about making Bongbong as Duterte’s shield for Coup d’etat.
He shared a very important discussion during the transition period before Duterte was sworn in as President. When they realized that Duterte has clinched the Presidency, they know that Duterte was against a lot of political parties and different Alpha Politicians who would want Duterte’s Administration to fail so they brainstormed and devised strategies for Duterte to have a peaceful first year of office.
Since the support of Duterte among the elites and established political parties is almost zilch, the inner circle decided to give out carrots to would be potential trouble makers. Here is the list:
1. Coopt the LP and Poe’s factions in the House sine PDP has less than twenty members. Trade juicy committees for bought loyalties. Make sure that even the Minority Positions are field with Pro-Duterte Congressmen so as to have a virual one party rule in the House.
2. Release the high ranking Politburo officials and Negotiate with Sison. Appoint some to Government Positions.
3. Lift the arrest warrant for Nur Misuari and established a ceasefire with the MNLF.
4. Give a de facto autonomy to MILF while Federalism is being pushed in the House.
5. Negotiate with the Senators to support Pimentel in exchange for being free of prosecution on the DAP and PDAF issues, but must support the persecution and ouster of De Lima and Trillanes. Even the Drilon and Bam accepted the negotiations but would not sacrifice De Lima and Trillanes. Recto is one of the smart ones by taking the Minority position yet supports Duterte through inaction or by abstaining. Sotto knows that with his history of being a protector of Druglords, he needs to be Duterte’s lapdog, else he will be pulutan.
6. Appoint Ramos men and after a year those who lost in the election are promised juicy positions.
7. Gloria will be released ASAP in exchange for Gloria’s politicians in tye House and the influence in SC through her appointed Justices.
8. Must allow the burial of Macos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani in exchanged for Billion of Pesos Campaign funds for Dutertes run for the presidency.
9. Leftist Party Lists are coopted in the Majority in the House and the VACC are well rewarded so as to neutralize them when Duterte decided to issue the controversial nurial of Marcos in LNMB. Since these leftist groups are now under the Pro-Duterte umbrella, they will not fight Duterte in the streets with as much courage as before during the Edsa Protests. That is why, Colmenares et al.
10. The Military and PNP. PNP has a lot of are corrupt members but the Military ophas few bad eggs. Thus PNP is easier to control if one knows how to reward them since they are not that ideological. But the Military is different and are wary of Duterte’s leftist and MNLF leanings, thus Ramos support is crucial to check the Generals who have some gratitude towards Aquino.
11. The Chinese Connection. It has been known to the US the frequent presence of the Chinese agents who were visiting Duterte during the campaign period and the intel and funding assistance given to Duterte. Duterte is a romantic leftist and has the dream of being the Fidel Castro of the Philippines. With his Professor’s Sison influence and Duterte’s admiration for Hitler and Mussolini, and his Maoist belief that the Power emanates from the barrel of the gun, Duterte can’t contain his contempt against the Americans. Duterte, as a lot of leftists blamed the Americans on the abuses and suppression of the poor and the Muslims, and his beliefs, values and interests are aligned closely with China, thus the sellout of our territories as payment for their intelligence support and to stick his dirty finger to Uncle Sam.
But the factions are divided when it comes to Bongbong’s ascencion to the Vice Presidency. Panelo, as the former lawyer of the Marcoses, lobbied for immediate support to pressure the PET to decide in favor of Bongbong, but the rest of the Davao Boys are themselves non-committal, but promised Panelo that in due time Bongbong will be VP. When Panelo was no longer around, the discussion was to devise a strategy to keep the support of Marcos but not make him stronger by being the VP. The Davao Boys do not trust the Marcoses for with Billions of dollars in his war chest, Marcos could easily buy and finance the assassination of Duterte or if that fails would mount a coup. What is a few billion pesos when the prize is the restoration of Marcos power and a possible Marcos Dynasty? The Davao Boys decided that with Leni as VP, they have a fighting chance to subvert a coup against Duterte especially with Ramos in their Camp. It is obvious that the Aquinos don’t have the financial capacity to fund a coup without the help of other factions and the Americans. Thus Bongbong needs to remain as a contestant rather than the VP himself. To appease and keep Duterte’s promise, Duterte allowed Marcos to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
But the Davao Boys are sure of one thing, Duterte’s worst enemy is himself!
For those new visitors who are Du30 supporters and not familiar with my articles, rest assured that I don’t limit my criticisms to Duterte alone but almost all our politicians.
This website is award winning because it tries its best to be fair.
Though we might be having different opinions, Rest assured that most of us here have good intent for our nation. Some are diehard Yellowtards and few regulars here are Dutertards and currently there is an increased presence of Duterte diehards due to Raissa’s lapse in assuming that Kitty owned the website in the above article.
I believe that there are plenty of Duterte supporters who frequently visit this blog so as to check if the propaganda of Andanar has grain of truth in them. And I believe that those same Duterte supporters are not as stupid as the Yellowtards claim that they are. I concede though that the same Duterte supporters are passionate to a fault that they have acquired more tolerance in accepting the lies and propaganda of Andanar et al.
It takes time to accept the reality that Duterte is bad for the health of our nation. Buyers remorse is now creeping on the poor families of the victims of EJK who believed Duterte as their savior, and they found out the worst way when they are burying their dead.
For me, we are running out of time for the longer Duterte is in the driver seat, he endangers us to be included in his self destruction. I jump off the bus as soon as I can and glad I did!

what the likes of you don’t point out is that a young girl is being used for propaganda purposes.
and no one has disputed the call out for troops to stage a rally.
hindi po ako mayabang kung alam ko naman mga sinasabi ko.
baka ikaw po mayabang kahit mali mali sources mo pinapublish nyo parin po.
ganyan sa mindanao, children are being used for a cause. likewise, kitty might be one of those being used for a cause, her fan page a meeting place of those not nice.
good thing though that raissa brought attention to kitty’s fan page. kitty’s parents will surely monitor what’s going on in there. will they let their daughter be used for something not nice?
The ‘the call to join the counter-rally came from no less than Veronica “Kitty” Duterte’s ‘ – FunBook or FB until repudiated by Kitty herself at FB that someone or some group misappropriated her name without her consent or knowledge.
Continued silence after Nov. 30th on it will mean that it is hers or she ratifies the ‘call to join the counter-rally’ on Nov. 30th in the afternoon.
If Kitty denounces such call, then everybody is informed there is no such call for a counter-rally.
Hindi ba bawal gumamit ng pangalan ng iba lalo na sa FB?
Hindi ba bawal din ang paggamit ng mga larawan na hindi syo?
Hindi ba bawal din na magpanggap ka na ikaw ang ibang tao?
Ngayon kung yung tao na ginamit mo ay alam ito at pinayagan, hindi ba panloloko naman ang labas nuon? Lalo pa at ang mga nakalagay sa account mo ay mistulang ikaw mismo ang nagsasabi nuon?
At lalo na malaking kamalian na ang tao na ginagaya o kunwari ikaw ay isang bata? Na ang mga salita na sinulat o nakasulat ay pang adult na?
At salamat kay RR, dahil sa kung tama sila or pinanindigan nila ang ginagawa nila… Bakit, bakit pinalitan na at naging fan page na lang?
Ibig sabihin nahuli sila sa kabulastugan nila… kung sino man itong mga matatandang ito.
Now who’s the online troll 😞
Sa pangalan na lang…

Duterte had a mild heart attack…
Based on the rumors, Duterte had a mild heart attack.
Panelo hastily convened with Bongbong about his election protest and how to move the planned date of the decision of PET. Millions of dollars are now at play to buy the Vice Presidency.
Panelo is alarmed that with Duterte’s fragile health, he might not last until the end of 2017 among the possibilities of being impeached, overthrown, and assassinated or by natural death. Leni will be the obvious successor per our constitution. Imelda was terrified when Ombudsman Carpio-Morales revealed that Duterte is being investigated with plunder in relation to ghost employees. Binays are now rekindling their relationship with LP in case Duterte put the gas on prosecuting Binays’ cases. Gloria is now being asked to return favors by negotiating with her SC Justices appointees for Bongbong’s VP case, however Gloria believes that she could still regain her lost power through Federalism cum Paliamentary form of Government that is why she is looking for her option of not helping Bongbong be the VP so as she has better chance in a rocky Duterte government.
Duterte though wanted to stick to the plan that Bongbong be pronounced winner by next year. He just saw the backlash when he allowed the Dictator’s Burial in LNMB and the clusterfuck of Aguirre when the script against De Lima fell apart.
With this uncertainty, the turncoats of LP are now double agents and would like to be with the good graces of Robredo and De Lima once Duterte is out. Ramos trusted lieutenant Raffy Aluna had several meetings with key LP leaders and had a courtesy meeting with Robredo.
With these smart politicians who know how to read the ever changing sentiments of the people, Lacson is now sympathetic to De Lima and Gordon starting to soften up and shifted to neutral on De Lima’s persecution.
The State Department is now in talks with the disgruntled Generals in the Military and set an option of the possibility of ousting Duterte. Trump wanted to show that he is a hawk and check China’s intrusion in the US Pacific considered strategic territories and seems Duterte is the best and easy target to make his point.
With Duterte’s failure to deliver eradicating the Drug Menace within six months, the looming Philippine economic downturn, the awakening of The Filipino Youth’s interest in politics, and the EJK’s and now plan purging of the drug users, the season is ripe for Duterte’s downfall.
Duterte though could make himself Coup d’état proof by helping Bongbong wins his protest against Leni for the Presidency.
How reliable are my unreliable sources? Remember the time I confirmed years ago that De Lima was having an affair with Dayan as well as the American Troops in SAF44?
xxxCoup d’état proof by helping Bongbong wins his protest against Leni for the Vice Presidency.
parekoy, akala ko iyong next post mo ay follow-up ng mild heart attack ni du30 na hindi mild kundi mas mahigit pa sa mild. erratum pala he he he.
kaya pala nasa malakanyang kahapon si arroyo.
salamat enjoy reading your post.
uhm, I think, a goat farmer will find a digong kalookalike and our country will be ruled by he who looks like digong. but looks only pls, not behave like him, but more sane: not spanking bottoms of polis women, not smelling vaginas of the wives of others, not given to swearing at 1st chance he got, less china loving and more pinas loving – that’s the preferable kalookalike.
“digong lookalike” si dayan. he is a littlehim (digong). maraming pictures si dayan na sa biglang tingin ay parang si digong. you can compare kahit sa isa sa mga posts sa blog na ito.
I think, dayan is more guapo than digong, he, he, he. hindi buntis. at saka, yong sinabing mild heart attack, expect a sequel. alam mo naman ang nature ng heart attack, it is likely to be followed by another, and yet another. good thing though, digong has already said early on na he does not want to be buried in libingan.
I believed you Parekoy…Kanina lang tumawag ako sa aking Nanay na nasa 80’s na at at nangumusta at eto ang kwento nya. Ay naku! ang gulo-gulo ngayon meron giyera sa Mindanao at may bomba daw sa Maynila, nakakabalita ka ba dyan? ang sagot ko Opo Nay updated po ako sana Nay di kayo na-aapektuhan dyan sa probinsya. Na! biglang nagtaasan ang bilihin maraming uma-angal lahat na lang ay nagmahal… Kasi po Nay yang si Duterte ay inaway ang USA kaya po nagkakaganyan. ANG SAMA-SAMA PALA NG DUTERTE NA IYAN! Di naman namin IBINOTO YAN…
@Parekoy, the DU30 ship is starting to show crack in the hull and water slowly seeping in. It wont be long till the rats jump ship.
Marcos then started losing his grip because of failing health. It seems that health is also DU30’s challenge.
a big rat almost slipped already.
pero sinuyo ni bduts.
medyo cautious na si bduts
There is no such thing as unsinkable ship. Ships cracks or rusts. Whichever comes first is immaterial.
Marcos’ ship sank due to big cracks and sunk after great rusts during Martial Law.
Yo! I thought you were good. I was so dead wrong. You are frickin’ grrrrreaat! That’s a lot of rr’s. Enjoyed reading this one 🤗
A good Jason Bourne material. Keep well.
john c. jacinto says
If the SC rules to uphold Bobong Marcos’ electoral protest, that would provoke another expression of People Power that could oust Duterte and usher Leni into Malacañang. The scenarios are not good for Duterte but rife with opportunities for the people to assert their sovereign authority to establish a good government.
An electoral protest before the SC always if not most of the time takes years to finish until the next VP elections.
But with a lot of cash by BB to spend for the counting of ballots, more cash to fast track and finish the electoral protest, maybe before end of 2017.
Surely, there will be new electoral doctrines forthcoming.
Simply Rody says
Parekoy is just a remnants of those drug personalities who where affected by the campaign of our Beloved President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, just ignore this kind of people soon they will be wiped out on the society.
Just leave “kitty” Duterte alone guys, in the future she will be the next generation of fine breed legislator of this land and she will fight for the legacy of his father, legacy that will not be forgotten for such a simple “probinsyano” who loved so much his motherland and offer his life for the sake of his fellow. God speed Mr. President, burn those unrighteous in hell’s fire. Amen!
You can argue with Parekoy BUT DO NOT LINK HIM EVER TO DRUGS.
You have no basis, no business and no right to do that.
YOu know very well that alleged drug personalities become targets for killings.
nah, maybe kitty wants to be policewoman, and be spanked! she may not want to be legislator, too much problem. not good for health yan.
simply roddy, what we have here in raissa’s blog is way much better than drugs, and more potent than drugs too. we have writing addiction! blogging addiction! submit addiction! reading addiction! eating addiction! loving addiction! shoe addiction, that too.
@moonie. . . Now, the trolls have MISTAKE ADDICTION!
There are now many troll-journos with each a MISTAKE ADDICTION.
They are watching very keenly for another mistake to add more MISTAKE ADDICTION by these trolls.
They’ll grow in numbers in this blog site with nothing to do except to point out MISTAKE ADDICTIONS.
Graduates in Liberal Arts with MA = MISTAKE ADDICTIONS.
loved you talaga, leona. napadpad ako, blown away, spirited away and once landed in ellen tordesillas’ blog. there, I’ve read that digong wants media to be his sidekick, be his messenger to the world and spreading his messages far and wide. he, he, he, I did not know that for media messaging, digong would include his own daughter!
The Observer says
For @Simply Rody: Oh, Duterte loves so much his motherland. He shows this by killing Filipinos; punishing those who oppose his ideologies, allowing burial of dictator Marcos, freeing corrupt politicians like Arroyo, Enrile, etc. If this is how one loves his country, then he must be some kind of ………?
He is absolutely wittingly and unwittingly without compassion for alleged and non-alleged Filipino drug users and pushers.
It goes with selectivity at his own in-judiciousness.
Thinking people do not know what is he really.
Beware na lang.
Naah… Lokohin mo ang Lelong mong Panot ikaw na lang ang maging Tanga wag mo kaming isama…
To simply Rody,
Naah… Lokohin mo ang Lelong mong Panot…Ikaw na lang ang maging “Tanga” huwag mo kaming isama…
johnny bravo says
hindi naman yan si kitty…. :)….. pinapalabas niyong siya yung anak ng presidente na may fb account??? hehehe
But you can see it’s trying to sound like her.
It’s using her.
I think it should call itself the “Official FAN PAGE” not the “Official Page”
Well, I will be more careful next time.
Makakita kasi ng pang-atake, post agad. Masyadong excited as paninira ‘te?
disturbed na ginagamit niyo ang anak ng presidente.
Ay, te sorry mali na naman ata ang hinala mo. Di po ako kasama sa gumagamit ng anak ng presidente. Ayaw ko nga po yung magpalabas ng bata sa eskwelahan para mag-rally e. Sana po mag-apologize din kayo sa public na nakakabasa ng sinusulat nyo. Wala na po kayo pinag-iba kay mocha nyan.
hindi mo ba binasa yung public apology ko?
ay mali. Hindi ka pala nagbabasa.
may nabanggit ka, anong palagay mo kay mocha?
atleast mam u gain so much attention to this kind of article… kahit mali mali sources nyo para lang maka post ng ganito.
more website visitors = more income… tama po ba?
troll attack = website down = no visitors.
research ka pa more.
and that was not my intention.
hahaha! try pa more!
I have visited the site and I realized the poster is an insider of the family because he or she has access to the political, official and personal/private photos of the girl.
Duterte supporters, instead of attacking Raissa here, why don’t you report one of your own, that page is not helping the girl. She is innocent and using her to settle scores of impunity doesn’t make her appreciated.
Where does she go to school? I hope the school admin. will be more mature to stop whoever is manipulating this kind of plot to use her… too bad if she is not that innocent.
This up loader must also be reported because she is uploading faces and photos of other girls who are the classmates of this Duterte kid.
Reading on the comments, it is becoming a hate page, it reeks of hate inducing each other of harming DeLima from most comments… the key here is manipulating the use of a 12 year old kid picture. It is abusive and illegal.
Like this one:” Papatayin na din yan ng Daddy mo. Haha! Dapat pinapakain na yan sa PATiNG, Solve jan ang PATiNG Baboy yan eh. Hahaha!”
It may be a joke for them but the word is a red flag and not appropriate for the purpose of a kid.
I have a hunch who is doing this,, uso pa ba yun?
Lol jokes on you guys. Nakakatawa comment nyu to think fan page yung tinitira nyu 😂😂😂
na ginagamit yung anak ng presidente.
Haha palusot pa more..
tama yung call to rally.
Yun nga at bakit tinitira nyo si kitty eh walang kaalam alam ang bata…kung may fan page kaman aling raissa at ginagamit ang oangalan mo….ok lang ba sa iyo na ikaw ang titirahin manang? Just sayin…
kaya nga nag-apologize sa kanya.
pero hindi sa mga Admins ng FB page na ginagamit siya para manlinlang ng iba.
Hindi ko yata nabasa na tinitira si Kitty.
Inosente ang bata pero ginagamit nyo sa trickery.
