I have always had confidence that there are people in government service who will say—enough is enough.
And one of them, the Director-General of the Philippine Information Agency, just did.
Just hours ago, Harold Clavite posted on Facebook a stinging rebuke of Presidential Communications Office Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson and basically told her to take a hike.
This was even after President Rodrigo Duterte was said to have come to her defense, according to presidential spokesman Harry Roque.
Now the PIA performs a very important role in the executive department. It is that agency which hums in the background, churning out news about the President’s actions and what other parts of the Executive Department is doing. Down to the grassroots level.
Many people have probably never heard of Clavite but alleged millions know Mocha. Although this does not seem to translate into potential votes for a possible senatorial post, based on a recent Pulse Asia survey.
However, Mocha is very very close to the President. So when Clavite did this, I am assuming that he had laid his job on the line. And he’s ready to be fired by the boss.
Mocha has also shot back at her critics saying it is they who have dirty minds.
Spokesman Roque indicated that Duterte was “very cool” with what Mocha did because he believes in “freedom of expression” and “it was not really a big thing”.
That was the spin of the Palace.
But this time, Harold Clavite, head of the PIA, went against the spin and told the nation that what Mocha did was not cool and it was a big thing.
On the heels of PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson’s latest blunder on the Administration’s campaign to push for federalism, a public apology from the PCOO official is paramount. Along this line is a call for her to take a leave of absence to reflect on these matters.
This is not only a seeming insult to our profession in communication and public information but also degrading to the women and mothers in our communities.
I have served alongside PCOO and all its attached agencies under the good leadership of Secretary Martin Andanar, and as far as I’m concerned, Ms. Uson’s actions since her appointment have time and again proven to be in poor taste—a display of an utter lack of judgment and have maligned our profession as government communicators. I speak out on this issue to give value to the massive man-hours my office, the Philippine Information Agency, had spent on providing capability and capacity building trainings, seminars, and workshops to all our stakeholders in public information on the ground; to give value to the hard work of PCOO’s attached agencies.
My stand on this issue defends the integrity and intelligence of all government information officers, volunteers, and partners— many of whom women and mothers— across the nation, who are continuously working very hard to positively influence the Filipino public to make them responsible sharers of information and be able to contribute to the significant change the public information infrastructure of this country so badly requires.
As a public servant and being part of the PCOO family, I take great offense in Ms. Uson’s actions, which continuously damages the rectitude of my communication and public information agenda. I can no longer let her obscure and vilify my honest work in helping the President, this government, and this country, as well as the efforts that we have painstakingly and patiently put into place under my leadership in PIA for the past two years.
We have been sitting idly by for too long, and it is about time that someone speaks up and hold erring officials accountable for repeatedly tarnishing the reputation of our government.
With this, I respectfully urge Ms. Mocha Uson to take a leave of absence to think and reconfigure all her strategies putting into consideration the code of conduct and ethical standards that all public officials should adhere to.
HAROLD E. CLAVITE
Philippine Information Agency
If President Duterte asked for your advice, who should go—Mocha or Harold?
Or should he keep both?
By the way, I do believe that Mocha is the best thing that has happened to turn off voters against voting for federalism.
Just play that jingle video over and over.
“I-pepe, i-pepe, i-dede, i-dede, i-pepe-pepe-pepederalismo!”
For Mocha, the average Filipino voter does not have to understand federalism. He just needs to dance to her tune: “I-pepe, i-pepe, i-dede, i-dede, i-pepe-pepe-pepederalismo!”
You were SO right again Raissa…………
“The allegations are baseless and unsubstantiated. This is part of a demolition job being done against me because of the financial and organizational reforms that I have instituted in the Agency since I took office in 2016,” he asserted.
It doesn’t really matter what, who, when,who, why and how Fede dede is explained to the people. The people are simply not ready for this sudden changing especially with this present management when everyone is corrupt. What is the purpose for the people when it is just a trial and error?
The president may really want to push and shove it but he himself should be the standard bearer of good news. What he got is a ” muse” in the person of PEPE DEDE USON and a bunch of identity challenged clowns to PATHETICALLY explain his grandiose dream form of govt. to the people.
Yes, it is a good thing that people now realized that they don’t know a thing about this concept of government. This government’s quackery and fuckery is more than too many and people are still confused, mute, deaf and blind.
I hope Sen. Soda SOTTO would step up do his job of partnering with USON to dance away this i pepe, i dede to the tune of ….I can still remember as my age shows… :)

WHO ARE THE ECONOMISTS/FINANCE MANAGERS ON THE CON COM?
I ask this because the recent spat made me realize the current composition of the 25 member Con-Com are largely made up of politicians, judges, lawyers and political science persons.
Back in college, the conventional wisdom was that if you are poor with numbers – you go into political science, law or the social sciences (except economics, which is numbers heavy). You avoid finance, economics, statistics, engineering, etc.
My impression is that the output of the Con-Com reflects this imbalance in the expertise of the group, which is why the call of Koko Pimentel to bring out the numbers, the financials of the proposed shift to federalism be brought out is crucial. My hunch? There is none – if any, it will be rushed, too shallow, with no details.
I think the current Con-Com members are good only with concepts, theories, philosophies but are poor with numbers. And that will reflect in how badly they can make the transition to federalism!
What this country need now on the
proposed federal constitution is a
public spirited debate or
To learn from how it came about
with the federal constitution of America
before its approval, the Federalist
Papers a series of essays to explain
the constitution. It was not to Shut Up
as Fr. Ranhilo replies, to those who
opposed approving it.
The first thing to ask or discuss in our
federal constitution is the strict
separation of powers. The Federalist
Paper did this.
Too many do not know in our federal
constitution the strict separation
of powers at the Transitional
Provisions. The fear is ‘Anything Goes’
as raised by Raissa Robles.
Too many do not know how this
particular provision will go. It can
add more problem approving the
federal constitution or whatever the
The States of USA were afraid of
the federal constitution despite a
Bill of Rights. So, the essays
of or discussions of Hamilton
and Madison explained this.
In our case, we need further, much
more further, not only to have essays
on it but maybe to remove
the power expressed in the Transitional
That is to say, to keep the executive
from encroaching on any part
of the legislative and judicial powers.
What is this executive power? It goes like
this – Article XX SEC. 4:
“Section 4. In case any region fails to comply with its obligation as provided for in the Constitution which seriously undermines the sovereignty, territorial integrity, economy, or the unity of the Federal Republic, the President may intervene and take all measures necessary and proper to address the failure. Within thirty (30) days from the intervention, the President shall report to Congress the actions taken. Congress may take appropriate action on the report by a majority vote of its members voting jointly. If necessary, Congress may authorize the President to take further actions until the crisis is resolved.”
Too many will agree with Raissa Robles’ comment – It is wide open to mischievous interpretation. Read further Raissa Robles on this.
Next is Sections 1 and 2 of Article XXII of the Transitory Provisions gives Duterte the power to issue decrees:
“Section 2 of the Transitory Provisions. a) To formulate and adopt a transition plan for the orderly shift to the new system of government as provided for in the Constitution. The transition plan shall be published in the Official Gazette and in at least two (2) newspapers of general circulation, and any digital platform chosen by the Transition Commission; (b) For the proper execution of the transition plan, it shall promulgate the necessary rules, regulations, orders, decrees, proclamations, and other issuances, do all acts to implement the same, and resolve all issues and disputes that may arise therefrom….”
. . . it does not spell out in detail the steps of transition from presidential to federal and . . . he is being given all-encompassing powers to do that, Pres. Duterte as head of the Transitional Commission. Read Raissa Robles again.
Only in this Cyber Plaza this discussion is found, if I am
not mistaken. To the general public none, even Cabinet
members have not commented much on this. Maybe Aquilino
Pimentil, Jr., who said I did not know about it, . . .
The Federalist Paper in its Introduction writes
it as . . . ‘it would then be the people’s job
to police those barriers, relevant to in our
federal constitution, this power in the Transitiository
Provision what is constitutional and what is
Let us all not hurriedly subject this
voting on our federal constitution in
a matter of days or months from now.
We have so many who do not even
understand what this is all about.
So many of us are ignorant about
changing constitutions and its effects.
Mag hinay-hinay kita. . . tayo! From
now to Year 2022 is about 4 years
in transition period to this change
under an atmosphere of ignorance
on so many of our people to this.
Many of our poor, who constitute a
substantial part of the majority, only
needs to eat and survive everyday.
They definitely do not know about
the political changing of their laws
in the land.
Let us all hope our political leaders
and citizens will carefully deliberate
our federal constitution beforehand.
Otherwise, to approve it is too risky.
To disapprove it is just as risky if not
much more risky for all of us.
the Federalist Paper, complete. . .
kung ako lang po, I’d disapprove and not give legitimacy to digong’s federalism. best to thwart him now and not give him any more transitional power. sipain ang federalism niya at ibasura!
life is always risky, the sky can fall down on us, he, he, he, and chinese president xi is coming for visit where he could lay further plan of china-zation of pinas, making pinas more reliant on china, and maybe even refueling his presidential jet and not paying for refueling bill!
dumb yang push for federalism, halos walang pondo kasi to tide pinas over for the 1st few months of confusion, what region is what, which politicians are running the regions,etc, at may palakasan na naman, the closer politicians are to digong, the richer the region they’ll get, or allowed sila to alsa balutan and migrate to richer regions and taking over the governing there, much to the dismay of the locals.
walang firm policy si digong, federalism is potentially disastrous and we have no guarantee he’ll follow through what has been agreed, he’s whimsy and changeable as the weather, and his transitional power is as he sees fit!
and fr ranilho aquino is not any better. religious yan at dependent sa charity ni dong, fr aquino does not even pay tax.
economics is certainly not fr aquino’s strong point.
To think about it .. bakit kaya hindi nila ma reprimand itong si Mocha? Even for obvious blunder she has made so many times.
Your guess might the same as mine… (pag umaalis si old man, hindi kasama si Honeylet but its Mocha who is with him diba?) Anong sekretong malupit hawak kaya ni Mocha?
Would it be ang favorite ng old man na flavor ay Mocha? heheheh
Marmee Cruz says
Your guess is as good as mine! Wink…wink.
She won’t say sorry, this girl called Mochallous!!!!
of couse, she wont say sorry! its like the ferdie and meldie show over again, only this time it’s digong and mocha. ferdie has meldie and digong has mocha, in essence po digong is more marcos than bong marcos, he, he, he. si bong is not supported by his spouse in public, palaging absent, unseen and unheard from the public scene ang spouse niya, the invisible woman!
in her heyday, meldie did so much kapalpakan; now, its mocha’s turn. early days palang, already mocha is showing signs she can best meldie. not yet into collecting shoes, jewels and partying like there’s no tomorrow, mocha is already much on the scene, playing politics and spreading fake news, at traveling overseas extensively pa! gastos niya sagot ng gobyerno.
and like ferdie who cannot see the error in meldie’s way, digong is much the same and cannot see the errors in mocha’s way. wont be long yata before lorenzana and esperon ay sasayaw din, wearing tight bike shorts instead of grass skirts, and do pepe and dede dance routine, he, he, he.
previously, it was meldie and ferdie show; now po, it’s digong and mocha show. and all the while, bong marcos thought he is marcos heir apparent, when actually it;s digong! bong marcos has been supplanted. poor bong marcos, cannot see what’s right in front of him, he, he, he.
If only the people knows that we are all
inflating in our economy
. . . Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other House leaders
wants ZERO-TARIFF tack as a counter-inflation measures.
Sec. Harry says . . . ‘no one is saying that there will be zero tariff.’
Harry: Gloria wants ZERO tariff !
If there is a ZERO tariff imposed on imported products, there
will be WAR. . . says (Agriculture) Secretary (Emmanuel) Piñol says it’s going to be war
with domestic agricultural producers.
What is inflated economy? Filled with gas. Puffed up.
Inflation is the rate at which the general level of prices for goods and services is rising and, consequently, the purchasing power of currency is falling. Central banks attempt to limit inflation — and avoid deflation — in order to keep the economy running smoothly.
So, a zero-tariff on imported meat, fish and vegetables for example
will counter inflation. Domestic agricultural producers will not
want a zero-tariff.
In USA now, Pres. Trump is putting a lot of tariffs on
What should ‘Pinas do? Zero zero zero or
inflate inflate inflate?
dilemma choosing which of the
of two is the lesser evil. Gloria Arroyo
already made a choice.
What about the President?
Time and again DU30 admitted that economics is not his forte, GMA is taking over as shadow president!!!!
zero tariff on imported good, it will benefit china the most! pinas will be flooded with chinese goods, suspects goods, fakes good, some crudely made, and big profits going all the way back to china, like our fishes going to chinese dinner tables, nothing para sa atin, pampanga kasi si fast turning into swamp, palaging binabaha, he, he, he, and arroyo is the resident buaya, biting those closest to her, namely the filipino people!
smuggling will be on the increase, free port talaga.
arroyo favors the chinese, not the filipino people. best for her to immigrate to china!
. . . the lesser of two evils, para sa akin po, arroyo is definitely not the lesser evil, she is the she-devil incarnate! he, he, he.
What about the President? tanong po ni leona. sagot ko, the president started it all this inflation thingy. dalawa kasi ng opisina nyan, one in dabaw, the other in malakanyang, keeping two staffs that must be paid, the keep of his two offices and his commutes, all charged to the kaban ng bayan. and for all his expenses, what did taumbayan get in return? train law, less money for them, less hope and bleak future. ang laki ng domestic expenses ni digong, with nothing much to show for it. except maybe, the ruins of marawi city.
also, digong racked mileage in overseas travels, eliciting economic pledges from nations, pero nothing much comes out of those pledges, pinasa lang siya ng husto. apparently, nations barely trust digong.
so now, after much millions have been spent on useless overseas pursuits, homebound na si digong, no more money left yata for overseas travel, he, he, he. but no worries, mocha will do her bit to the nation and maybe, sink it even more, she’ll do much for federalism too and make digong happy with her pepe and dede, he, he, he.

pinas bankrupt na paying high interest to loan shark china. kaya, a tingin ko, gusto ni fr ranillo na tumahimik na lang sina dominguez at pernia and not talk about how inadequate federalism is going to be, how potentially an economic disaster federalism is!
fr ranillo gustong mag-silence of the lamb na lang sina dominguez! stop talking about money and finance, you two. there is very little to none left kasi, he, he, he. dont tell the truth about finance! dont warn taumbayan about the abyss waiting. dont let taumbayan be informed.
Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez on Wednesday told senators he “absolutely” would not approve of federalism as presented in the draft charter by the Malacanang-backed Consultative Committee.
His reason(s): 1.) federalism did not address important issues about the economy and could not be subjected to financial analysis.
He asked questions: 2.) How do they see that the national debt will be paid? [how] the army, military, foreign affairs, central bank will be paid?
He got an answer: And they said, ‘Oh no, don’t worry about that. The split will be after those expenses.’ But I said, it’s not in the draft,” Dominguez told senators.
He told the senators: 3.) “I had a long discussion with them and quite frankly, I was more confused than when I started. So, it’s good that it’s being discussed.
More confused (daw si SEC. Dominguez). . . says He. Me too!
Sen. Drilon asked HIM: When asked by Sen. Franklin Drilon if he would vote against federalism if given the chance, Dominguez answered: ““Absolutely! “”
No vote (daw) says He. – ‘Yes’ – will vote No siya.
ConCom spokesperson Ding Generoso, meanwhile, insisted that fiscal administration in the draft charter was “quite clear.”
Secretary of Finance vs. ConCom spokesperson Generoso!
What is maybe CLEAR per Mr. Generoso are: 1.) “The Federal (national) government basically retains the taxation power, except for selected taxes and fees the collection of which will be transferred to the regional governments,” Generoso said in a statement.
On that answer: I thought or maybe others thought that with federalism it doing away centralization of powers to tax from central gov’t. It is not so pala.
Mr. Generoso said: ‘the federal government and regional governments will have a 50-50 share of the collections from the top-four sources of revenues.’
50-50 sharing. There is still SHARING! Dapat no more sharing. What the federal Region
collects, belongs totally to the Region. But No pala.
Btw, at Article XIII of the DRAFT, the federal Regions have powers to
collect these TAXES presently collected by the BIR but
SEC. 1 still allows – federal gov’t to LEVY, collect all taxes,
duties, fees, charges,
except the power to tax granted to federal Regions.
Confusing. . .
Btw again. . . SEC. 3 provides: No double taxation shall be allowed.
Confusing again . . .
Sec. Dominguez and us are living in a state of confusion on this.
So, from that confusion the question is: what will be or what kind of Economy
will this country have under this federal cha-cha provisions on taxation
by the federal and the Regional gov’t?
For one – every person a taxpayer will probably
be paying DOUBLE TAXATION.
Pay under protests? By the time you get
an answer to your refund YOU ARE 6 FEET
BELOW THE GROUND already!
Thanks Sec. Dominguez. Ingat.
Btw – just to share this – In the state of NEVADA
USA, no income tax is paid – generally.
But federal gov’t collects Income Tax.
Nevada is maybe rich . . . on Casino
Should we have a Region here where
there will be sooo many Casinos for
Obviously, Sec. Dominguez knows what he’s talking about and doesn’t mince words. The draft says 50-50 share on BIR taxes (previously 40 – 60%) that largely comprise 90% of many LGUs’ income, the national treasury may likely suffer a big drop in its revenues and credit worthiness since the 50-50 sharing includes also collections from other major revenue collecting agencies.
Federalism will strengthen the federated regions at the expense of the federal government
I’ll go with him in voting against federalism during next year’s proposed plebiscite unless the Senate strongly rejects the proposed con-ass jointly with the lower house and insists on voting separately for the charter change – which apparently would result to retaining the present unitary system of government
Gary Olivar (GMA spokesperson) is very active for federalism…Is Drew his son?
Mocha must go! She is a shame! If PDuterte lets go of Clavite i will no longer support the president! She is a dummy!
expressing freedom of expression lang kuno si mocha, sabi ni roque. for a lawyer like roque, he ought to know there is limit to freedom of expression. look at movies, there are ratings like g for general, and others that need parental guidance, there are movies and films that are not for children and not for general consumption.
freedom of expression like any freedom has a limit, and if roque cannot understand that, he has gone rouge! and laki ng sahod kasi, gotta do as ordered.
ang fall out nito ay baka ibsura ng taumbayan ang federalism ng amo ni roque. digong dont listen to the cry of anguish ng taumbayan, he’ll be more deaf under federalism, where puno is going to give him absolute power.
freedom of expression, celdran of the father damaso fame did his freedom of expression and got jailed!
inside the simbahan kuno nangyari, the door was open kasi, and so celdran walked in. had the church door been closed, celdran could not have walked in and no father damaso protest.
it’s beyond me talaga why the catholic church should uphold fr damaso and castigate celdran. fr damaso was just a mythical character created by jose rizal and might not even be pinoy. and how many pinoys in those days are called damaso? weird ang pangalan ng mga pinoys nuon, may malakas, maganda, luningning, mandirigma, etc.
had I been cardinal tagle, I’d laugh off celdran and tell him to go and protest to rizal in luneta, he, he, he. just because rizal is hero does not mean tama ang lahat na gawa niya, rizal dude cannot even make his marriage work!
Mr. Carlos Celdran. . . held up a placard with the word “Damaso”—a reference to the villainous friar from Rizal’s novel, “Noli Me Tangere.” during an ecumenical service inside the Church.
Mr. Celdran dressed up as Dr. Jose Rizal.
Jose Rizal author of novels Noli Me Tangere Touch
Me Not and El Filibusterismo The Reign
of Greed. Rizal was arrested and charged for Treason.
He was executed by final judgment and shot by firing squad for it.
He was not granted a chance to appeal the guilty verdict.
He was executed so fast in hours only. Yet he again
did his last act Mi Ultimo Adios My Last Farewell
a beautiful goodbye.
Mr. Carlos Celdran is forgiven. . . said Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle yesterday said. It was not the Catholic Church that filed the case.
Who filed it?
Father Damaso filed the case for the Catholic Church!
Mr. Celdran lost all in his appeals up in the MTC
RTC and SC. Guilty pa rin despite having been forgiven.
Why the Catholic Church did not file an
Affidavit of Desistance as in other criminal cases
which most courts grants, is a sign that Dr. Jose
Rizal and his works are still hated by the Church up to this time.
So, the Catholic Church said. . . the case was
against the ‘People of the Philippines’ vs Carlos
Celdran. True but It could have ask for a dismissal.
Naging legalistic ang Catholic Church on this point.
Carlos Celdran is a hero in freedom of expression. His
placard “DAMASO” insulted the Church and its officials.
It made them cringed with disgusts. Do not fight the Church
with the government supporting It. You lose even in the
Bill of Rights on freedom of expression.
Dr. Jose Rizal is convicted for the second time in
his right of freedom of expression in
the person of Carlos Celdran.
Bangon na Dr. Rizal!
Martyrs are rare stars in the vast firmament of humanity. Every

in the lucky person of Carlos Celdran.
cheers po and thanks for the links. much appreciated.
What did Mr. Clavite say? He said: We have been sitting idly by for too long, and it is about time that someone speaks up and hold erring officials accountable for repeatedly tarnishing the reputation of our government.

‘madam pompadour’ is licensed to tarnish the reputation of digong’s govt. once she even jeopardized the ofws in saudi, posting video of saudi homes being raided by pinoy embassy officials just so distressed ofws hard done by saudi amos kuno can be rescued. digong sent team to clean up after madam.
and like the french madam pompadour, the madam we have in pinas is also nanghinimasok sa politika. if federalism push through, expect to see more of madam’s pervasive kapalpakan and wrong doings. she’ll reign supreme; unopposed, pepe-ing, dede-ing and will be most rewarded for her pepe dede contribution, maybe even gaining bigger portfolios higher salary and maybe a chance to rule side by side with him entrenched sa transitional power. madam of all madams, untouchable.
Marmee Cruz says
Methinks Mocha performs a “service” to the president. What service depends whether your minds are as dirty as the senators’! Hahaha!
kung may honor pang natira si puno, he’ll take mocha to court and file case against her. federalism is not about body parts.
1. This Uson video can be titled ” Federalism for Dummies.” Which reminds me, who reads
” Economics for Dummies” himself, admitting he knows nothing about it and delegating all policymaking to his appointees- leading to a lack of coordination and cohesion – resulting in high inflation, leading to Gloria Arroyo taking charge of economic policy?
2. All those who are rightfully indignant about Mocha ought to realize that she is protected by the President at all cost- because she is useful. Ultimately it is the President responsible for her.
Perhaps, I don’t agree with you on titling the video “Federalism for Dummies” because it insults the “Dummies” series.
It’s more like fake news she is pushing.
But I agree with you. Mocha IS protected by Duterte.
At what cost?
We shall see.
Welcome to Cuber Plaza Miranda, the Cyber-Tambayan ng Bayan
Patrick M. Gonzalez says
Ang palagay ko ngayon, si Duterte ay sunod sunuran na talaga kay Gloria Arroyo.
Ang scenario ngayon, nakakita ka na ba ng kahit anong gustuhin ni Gloria na hindi nya nakuha?
Nakalaya sya, naiposisyon nya mga tao nya, naging speaker pa sya.
Ang tingin ko kay Duterte, hindi sya talaga puedeng presidente kasi wala naman talaga sya alam sa mga importanteng bagay na makakatulong sa bansa natin.
Alam ni Gloria ito at unti unti, while we are putting all focus kay Duterte, hehe nakabalik na sya.
Pero hindi naman kailangang maging presidente ulit si Gloria o totally makuha nya ang power.
Duterte makes a good figurehead na may malakas na hatak sa mga tao.
Pabayaan mo syang magmura, pumatay ng tao, mag kwento ng kabataan nya, paulit ulit pero yung totoong mga nagpapatakbo ng kaperahan, at kapangyarihan ay sina Gloria at lahat ng ruling class, political warlords, traditional oppressors, add another group the drug syndicates, war on drugs is really a boon for them hehe
Ang posturing ni Duterte ay lahat walang katotohanan. Isa syang matandang mayor na nabigyan ng pagkakataon na maging presidente.
Sa totoo lang, hindi na importante kay Duterte ang repercussions ng mga pinagsasabi nya.
Ang dami na namatay pero war on drugs pa rin ang pinagsasabi. Sabi nya inaalis nya corrupt eh in the first place sya naman naglagay dyan, ano yun.
Pulis, ito ang pinaka matinding ally ni Duterte, tinaasan ang sweldo pero mamamatay tao pa rin hehe eh kung titser kaya ang tinaasan ang sweldo… asa pa.
Binomba ang Marawi ng walang kahit anong plano kungdi sige giyera! kawawa mga tao, pero kay Duterte, isang comedy na kwento pa rin ito.
China, hehe Duterte is really clueless about them but nandyan na yan kunwari may alam sya sa geo politics
Ako im resigned na hanggang 2022 tayong ganito.
Hindi kayang matanggal si Duterte, malakas sya sa mga Pinoy, that i have already accepted.
letters to the editor na lang ang gagawin ko hehe
malakas si digong lalo sa mga trolls who are so feral and vocal dahil he feeds them, encourage them and nurture them he, he, he. at saka yong followers ni mocha, how many of them are trolls with multiple accounts? at yong surveys where palaging mataas kuno ang rating ni digong, who pays for those? and who these days can afford to squander money on surveys! syempre those with vested interests, he, he, he.
heard ko tuloy, dswd kuno will have much less budget sa taong 2019. might as well, panay yoku ng yoku sila kay digong, accepting all from him. no money, no honey, and from me, no federalism, please.
malakas si digong sa mga pinoys lalo na those na nakikinabang sa kanya, nakikinabang ng todo at ayaw huminto, never had it so good! the drugs lords, the spreader of fake news, the peddlers of pepe and dedes, the consultants soon to rake millions in fees.
kaso, marami ang na-aapi at nagipit and those left behind have no recourse, no jobs, no hope and no future. kaya back to drugging themselves na lang sila and into stupor, thier default jobs selling and dealing drugs. no matter what digong does, drugs is on the rise pa rin. no matter how many people are killed, drugs is ever more present and getting more forceful, may dabaw connection yata, he, he, he.
those that have recieved money and cell phones from digong are so happy, despite what they must do and undergo just to receive them, the injuries they must endure, the loss of dignity, anything! aba, expecting pa rin yata sila to receive more kaya binaitan si digong and supportive of him kahit gaano.
kung sinabi na lang sana nila kay digong to pool all the money and share it with the poor and the homeless, to lessen the effect of train law and to stop fraternizing with corrupts and seeing to the corrupts well being, things might have been different.
people ought to know that those cell phones are somewhat kapalit for their silence. they could have gotten more like education for their children, houses for the homeless, jobs for the jobless, better medical service for all, but since they settled for cell phones, hanggan dyan lang sila. on square one uli, not going on to square two. and thus suppressing progress. very cheap.

so you dont believe that duterte still has the majority of the people supporting him?
Ako kasi with all the kapalpakan ni Duterte, walang outrage na makita that will cut across political lines or social class.
usual suspects pa rin lang ang malakas ang paglaban kay Duterte, im not saying its wrong but normal lang ito. The left , the LP block, catholic church, still the same voices.
Kung may plano si Duterte after his term limit, siguro lalabas ang mas malakas na outrage pero sa ngayon, not enough voices vs Duterte kahit dinadala na nya ang Pilipinas sa burak.
And im maintaining na si Gloria talaga ang totoong boss ni Duterte dahil bobo ang presidente sa pag papatakbo ng bansa.
Imagine, war on drugs ang centerpiece ng rule.
some questions have no answer, pope francis once said.
and just because nothing is visible,does not mean that nothing is there, gets nyo po ako? we cannot see oxygen, but its there alright and existing. same as love, we can only feel it, and hate and disgust, etc. concepts and thoughts, the air is thick with them. best shared and sometimes hidden.
stick your neck out and lose your head. who is prepared for that, but.
and if you want things done to your specification, you have to do it yourself, he, he, he. in the meantime, talking your way in and talking your way out, sharing ideas and being cyber tambay here – not bad! not bad at all.
big inventions start with small ideas, rush it and its pepe and dede, he, he, he.
my friends said, we all have voting power, so we’ll use it correct and boot out federalism!
Patrick M. Gonzalez says
Outrage can be seen , through peoples movement, protest, rallies, strong opposition , petitions, walk outs, small pockets of dissent..etc
Makikita mo ito, it is visible.
Walang ganito sa ngayon, kahit kitang kita na ang kawalanghiyaan ni Duterte!
Im resigned na people really believe Duterte and are willing to put up with him until his term ends.
I respect that, but it does not mean i agree.
Tama ka, all i can do now is air my grievances , isa nga ay dito.
I stuck my neck before, and im willing to do it again.
But for now, cyber tambayan is enough muna.
Do not resign yet! The fight goes on.
In the political field one is strong today
but tomorrow one is out.
Ex: si Pantyleon.
Politics is also a game of surprises
– additions vs subtractions.
Patrick M. Gonzalez says
I said im resigned to the fact that Filipinos still support Duterte, kahit pa sa sunod sunod na palpak na ginawa na nya.
Hindi ko naman sinabi na resigned na ako sa pag contribute sa pag puna sa gobyernong ito na sa tingin ko ay isa sa puede gawin ng karaniwang tao tulad ko.
I believe in the Filipino masses. I know Duterte represents a different way out of the peoples misery and thats why he still gets the peoples respect and trust.
In time, the masses will correct itself. I know that. Sila pa rin naman ang totoong may kapangyarihan.
News! Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo yesterday filed a resolution calling for separate voting by the House of Representatives and the Senate on Charter change (Cha-cha).
SENATE daw still refuses to participate. Reason – it is a
TRAP. Baka ibig sabihin a trap by the rats and not a rat-trap
My guess – LH will force the issue to make
senators join even AND bring the losing vote
by senators to the SC to come up with
a decision that possibly. . . the 1987 Consti means
So, Mocha will further go on stage singing:
na-dede na-pepe na-suso na-koko na-hipo-
po na-dodo na-kaka na-titi na-pee-pee
na-sukiki na-bulatete na-pako-ko na-uto-uto
GMA is not filing this reso for nothing!
This is part of her coup in the lower
house on liken pulling down senators’
panties and briefs, jockeys or pampers.
Ingat na lang kayo mga senadores even if
your NO votes is counted because SC might
vote NO to your NO votes – it is A JOINT
VOTING as the Consti is very SILENT on
it – So SC interpretation is legislated for that.
Liken this as a dilemma a forced choice
and liken that senators to be gorged by the
2 horns of the Bull just the same.
Not even the senators’ threat not to act
on it or to cremate LH’s approved cha-cha
as transmitted will work.
ayaw kunong maging prime minister si arroyo and yet, she’s within arm’s length of it and within easy reach!
separate con ass voting, uhm ang memory ko lang po, magaling mandaya yang si arroyo. she has done it last 2004 election, she can do so again. and like sip sip buddy bong marcos, if voting dont go arroyo’s way, she’ll go to pet and as ask for recount.
senate can offer antidote po, if they stay together and united and not allow this creepy unano to usurp them. senate has the power, the seat, and the will. except for that one who cannot understand the value of human life and in a hurry kaayo for death penalty to be made law. as if kapolisan is not already practising death penalty!
drill down says
one way to flush out swamp creatures
Most of the time I do not like TO See,
TO Hear, To Know, To Learn, To Support,
To Atbpa about Mocha. She is just
soo good for the green-grass for Carabao,
Kambing at atbpa. Banwa [grass] !
So I SKIP to do all
all of the above.
Mr. Harrold Clavite in short says:
SOBRA NA! TAMA NA!
Mocha is not worth to anything
for this Administration. She
should not just take a hike but
permanently leave the Usec post.
Why she still is kept in place is
a shock ‘n shook idea.
BOOT HER OUT!
Wasted people’s money on her.
She’s inutile. Useless. Pointless.
and how long will harold clavite last? no worries, he’ll be recycled, gone somewhere but still much around.
