In 1986 we were betrayed. Instead of becoming the opposite of Marcos the result was continuity of his perversity of the political system. In 2016 we were betrayed. Instead of getting a federal constitution, blunders and ineptitude now assure the worst political system in the world will stay on. Noynoy Aquino did not betray us in 2010. He kept his word and made the Philippines remain lousy.
Duterte now is saying that a person who is over 70 no longer has a reason to continue living. I have a problem with that beginning with the realization that he does not seem to know anymore what he is doing. Maybe fentanyl is clouding his thoughts or maybe his Chinaman handler is now the one taking charge. If the lives of those older than 70 are worthless then what have all those lockdowns been for since those of you below that age category are not easily killed by COVID? Duterte stated very clearly last year that his regime's lockdown will continue until there is vaccination.
Even more strange is that the bishops are being bribed with Sinovac although it's awkward to call something bribery if what's involved is something undesirable. Undesirable as in holiday for a lockdowned city in a large country that should be properly celebrating 500 years of Christianization. Team Duterte has kept proving it is capable only of failure yet his confidence in the military-police supporting him to the hilt is all he requires to convince himself that he is right in everything. This makes it a regime of guns and Chinese bioweapons, not a government of civil law and democratic discernment.

Let COVID rage till close to 2022 polls? Federico D. Pascual Jr. (The Philippine Star) - April 6, 2021 - There is this theory going around that President Duterte is in no hurry to tame the raging COVID-19 pandemic before the 2022 elections. Reports are rife of administration operators fanning or allowing the spread of the coronavirus that has escalated its daily infection rate to well past the 10,000 mark. “Even if the entire country gets sick, only 5 percent will be seriously ill and less than 1 percent will die. Most Filipinos can easily forget that toll as long as they have a long fiesta from Christmas to May next year.”

If the placebo drugs that local doctors and "experts" and "scientists" push are apparently working wonders for COVID patients, it would be reasonable to suppose that based on Europe-Americas epidemiologic demographics, this Chinese virus thing is therefore not as harmful to people like us in the first place. What cannot be denied is that here the Chinese virus has been a good thing for some, for those taking advantage of public funds and medical-hospital overpricing.
The FB collage above should be our favorite for this year, fifth year of the regime's anticorruption pretense. There's the daughter of Marcos calling Duterte palpak and the vice of Cebu who was the previous governor attending an event last week with the governor of Cebu who used to be former governor, the latter walking without a mask at the capitol like a true lady of defiance. This was for their Busog program for Cebu, a dire need for the Cebuano nation along with tourism restoration given the destructiveness of national lockdown imposition. By the way, the Tagalog informational graphics of the department of health are so cute, if only we could understand what they are saying.
It isn't exactly the words from the mouth of Dr. Doom Fauci but if lockdowns and masks are still de rigueur post in toto vaccination, those Pinoys are definitely doomed. First month (and a half) they could only administer less than a million first doses, and this was limited to the government's own personnel, the glorified frontliners. Who happen to be the easiest to round up and document. The constraint is supply and competence. They panicked the other month after opinion polls trashed the vaccine from China they conspired to order in majority. Ergo surge and Wehrmacht-grade lockdown to shock and frighten to the highest level anxiety attack. Swallow Sinovac or die.
It would not have been physically possible anyway to receive and administer close to 50 million doses this year. China itself has even been reported to be scrambling for the stocks of Western manufacturers as testament to the inferiority of its own product. So where does that leave us if this emergency situation they have put on us is really that desperate an emergency to be an existential threat? Not to be cynical but in a real life and death situation they would not waste money on Manila Bay Dolomite Duterte Beach. 15,286 deaths (April 13) is not insignificant but far from the worst in the world as many smaller countries have much more than that. Countries whose mortalities ring true because they do not connive with fraudsters there. They don't have Comelec Smartmatic ballot stuffing swabbed by PhilHealth.
Don't put too much weight on the relevance of positive counts. There is something going on if it doesn't kill you. Cambodia was the killing fields of the communists. China's virus kills where it is best able to, it is not a question of who was the country who was careful and who was not careful because all throughout there has been poor correlation with restrictiveness. It chooses the victim that suits it best. There are many of us here who still have had no friend and no relative die, as a fact, of coronavirus. In my case, not even an acquaintance.
Two weeks ago the Mexican health authorities thought they had a shocking discovery about their already disastrous coronavirus mortality being short by 100,000 plus (Mexico revises coronavirus death toll up by 60% - BBC News). They were wrong about that and did not shoot up the number of dead. The indigenous, mixed race and Aryan inhabitants of all the Americas are especially susceptible to the virus exported by China. Here they need dishonest statistics to sustain the scamdemic of a corrupt government advised by OCTA. They want you to keep buying facial coverings and chemically disinfecting everything in sight in order to keep away the microbial enemies of our country's best friend, COVID-China. Preventing those microorganisms from protecting you.
In 1919 they did not do too much about the 1918 coronavirus that killed up to 100 million worldwide and it just gradually went away. Enough should be good enough. Exceed that and you are making it worse. And let me make this clear, you cannot make me enjoy pandemic theater.

Here we go again. The other competitors in 2016 were all worse than the winner Duterte yet today our situation is far worse than the worst of the Noynoy Aquino years even if we disregard the impact of the China coronavirus. Now we are told that the president himself will be picking from celebrity mayors or senators attached to him. Spoken by a lawyer from the most prestigious university of a democratic in name only country. Shame on you. Not even the fascist dictators of China, Pyongyang and Russia publicly declare anything like that brazen nonsense.
Roque is your best example if you wish to present what is wrong with the Philippines. All these politicians know only one path to power, the corrupting ideology of populism Pinoy style which requires cash and entertainment to be dangled to the public. Can the lesser evil be chosen from the family responsible for the downward spiral of the country, from the showbiz-trapo sector or the Chinaman in charge of Duterte? In this system they proudly call multiparty system there has never been one actual party in the entire system.

You don't have to a genius to analyze the plot twists of the scriptwriters of the China coronavirus telenovela. The fear factor is what sells the story no matter how illogical it may be to deploy Cebuanos to Manila unless Cebu no longer has a problem which means Cebu should already be opened completely and freed from all lockdowns. And there you also have this OCTA thing agitating for more shutdown and martial law dictatorship. Cash aid is the bottom line of these gluttons.
Is bravery wearing a face mask, face shield and "anticovid" necklace purifier talisman antinganting when the nearest person is far enough? Brave people do not behave like puppies, especially not before an incompetent, corrupt and abusive government.
The economy has been going down and their response is to lockdown some more, with enthusiastic encouragement by OCTA. Same nonsense as the Easter Bunny of Biden wearing the sort of facemask that has not stopped viruschina from infecting 30 million US residents. America is a bad example for the purpose of our self-assessment because they are the best country in the world. Let's go instead to the country of the WHO puppet president, one that is by no means a model country but one comparable in size and diversity to us yet with a richer authentic historical pedigree.
One with almost five times less COVID dead than us even if their actions have been way more relaxed. A failed country like us but at least they possess a better system. Our Marcos-Cory years had been their darkest period, when Ethiopia had its equivalent of Tagalogista national socialism, of militarized supercentralism and national language derangement.

One year of lockdowns across the UK - BBC News Alex Magno (The Philippine Star) - March 23, 2021 The Wall Street Journal Rand Paul
Since the first one was announced 12 months ago, we've had two further national lockdowns, and more than 120,000 people have died after testing positive for Covid-19.
Now is the time to honestly tell our people that stamping out the virus is not a realistic goal into the foreseeable future. The pandemic will resurge in waves. There are not enough vaccines available to stop those waves, only to contain their severity. It is, frankly, not our goal to achieve “herd immunity” for our people soon. There is no consensus in the scientific community about what “herd immunity” really means. The estimate that we achieve herd immunity by vaccinating 70 percent of the population is a guess unsupported by scientific evidence.
Something unexpected happened in South Africa: Covid-19 cases started dropping, without a large-scale vaccination campaign or stringent lockdown. The reason remains somewhat of a mystery. South Africa’s Drop in Covid-19 Cases Adds to Questions About Waves of Infections -March 17, 2021
I believe in science. I spent most of my life studying it and practicing medicine. I don’t believe that’s what we are currently following in our country. And I had a few words to say about it to the patron saint of the petty tyrants - Dr. Fauci.
Some days I seem to be the only one up here standing up. Here’s what I said to Dr. Fauci in our Senate hearing:
“If people aren’t spreading the diseases, aren’t mask mandates just theater? YOU have had the vaccine, and you’re sitting here wearing TWO masks. Isn’t that just theater?”
The truth is, it is theater. Nothing else.
But it’s worse. It’s taking your freedom. The lockdown rules are still costing people jobs and businesses. The school closures are hurting our kids. And I’ve had enough.
I will stand up here in front of every official, every petty tyrant, every camera to reach the American people and tell them - you need to say you’ve had enough too. (from his FB page)

Alex Magno (The Philippine Star) - March 23, 2021
The Wall Street Journal
Rand like father Ron is a medical doctor-politician and had also contended for president. Both fiercely defend individual liberty and will never accept in their country the house to house search announced for the Holy Week by Duterte's boy Roque for rounding the "positives" minding their own business in MegaMetroManila. I know of only one person in America who tested positive but who was given a different cause of death. George Floyd, police brutality. UK severity is significantly more than it is for the US while in comparison to both death leaders, in the Philippines it is significantly less, less, less. China's COVID does not like our country very much and apparently it dislikes its motherland even more.
The death toll would be somewhat less if Euro-Americans applied stricter criteria but their stats remain useful because of consistency and neutrality. No one really knows how it spreads and how to stop it while older deadly diseases are being ignored. But we've had over a year to study how not to make things worse. So why are the "health" commissars and generals in Imperial Manila ratcheting up the daily cases? Because worse is better insofar as der commissarenski are concerned.
In a regular basketball game you can always spot the player shooting the ball and it will almost always be obvious who gets the points. Not so in the Chinacoronavirus sporting event. You have no way of knowing if the score for the kill rightfully goes to Team Covid because the scorer is the government and its "frontliners". No audience, no referees allowed so they can score it any way they like. They don't care if you observe that for months a certain region has deaths countable by one or two fingers daily and all of a sudden they score 26 on the day they want to panic the public into wanting Sinovac. Believable data follows statistical normal distribution. Weird figures showing highs during restrictions to freedom of movement and the inverse whenever loosened only means they are bullshitting you.

More than a quarter of members of Congress have yet to receive their coronavirus vaccine, though they've had access since December. There is no list of which lawmakers or their party, but several Republicans have publicly rejected getting the shots. As Republicans Shun Vaccines, Congress Toils to Return to Normal -March 20, 2021
Whoever UP OPTA may be and whether science is in truth their forte, we know for a fact they have not presented a comprehensive profile of coronavirus deaths among other important facets of a so-called pandemic. Incompetence (political and academic) resides in the Philippines yet somehow we have much less deaths here. They do not want to explain this. It is so good for them they want to make it last forever.
To repeat, Americanos and Europeans are confronted by an urgent health concern whereas for our own situation it is much less urgent but the reaction here is, to say it in Tagalog druggie slang, so very PRANING. So much so that officials have been greedily grabbing China "vaccines" for their own jabs, smuggling it late last year and jumping lines today ahead of the original "frontliners" and the most vulnerable, the oldest seniors.
One of the strangest reports early last year was the infection of several dozen out of the few thousand PSG bodyguards of Duterte, the very first positive detection in a cohort. Several months later this cohort was also the first to be jabbed with smuggled China "vaccines" therefore it is safe to conclude that in March they were also the first batch of swabbing subjects. At first I thought they were constantly in breathing contact with infected Chinaman guests of the president but now I think false positive test kits were used on them. Similar kits (there are over two hundred varieties and arbitrarily set cycle thresholds) were likely responsible for staging the creation of infection hotspots in Manila and Cebu weeks later.
The global vaccination chart of BBC news/world-51235105 for March 28 indicates half a million for the Philippines, only that small after the government had spent its first month prioritizing (by making it compulsory) its own personnel and "frontliners". Who happen to be the persons easiest for it to process for double dosing. Given this inefficiency it will take many years to finish.
Burma and Philippines are not so different, both are failed states trapped in national socialist tyranny. Both have deteriorated under decades of venal misrule. After Marcos the Philippines became bad and remained bad. Next to the spokesboy of the president making faces is an elected official under arrest at a state legislature. Done properly unlike the individual in Cebu being dragged like an animal out of the house. They can't even sort out their crackpot domestic travel restrictions as the central imposition get buried by varying local impositions. "Devolution" at work in the world's most centralized country. Costume play theater in the streets and sham vaccination rollout with the wrong vaccine.
Vaccinated, wears higher-priced shield and mask, yet still gets infected. The national marketing plan of IATF for low-qual Sinovac relies too much on superlockdowns. They might want to try a different salesmanship tactic for China's vaccines because it is backfiring. If they want to earn their money from China, their sales pitch better be convincing not suspicious, and to not be scary but to be sexy. Of course a claim by Mon Tulfo that Sinovac boosts penile function better than Pfizer Viagra Sildenafil is believable for less than two seconds. 100 million Sinovac moved by IATF will be the marketing achievement of the 21st Century.
Problem is the oldest technology using live viruses to manufacture vaccines like Sinovac relies on slow and inefficient processes (unlike Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna). This explains why the world's most feared industrial titan China has insufficient cumulative production going several months now, probably still not going to be enough for even just its own population after another year. Russia is said to have a much better vaccine but hardly any manufacturing capability to boast of. So we have America, Europe and India sometime later to source the spare vaccines from. And let us have some honesty here, right now those are the places that need it much more than we do.
Upright folk in Burma and the Philippines would learn a thing or two, if they can view this.

Clarification to the Lapulapu airport comment. The Reps House renamed the terminal building but this whole thing remains ludicrous. The national legislature underscores its self-inflicted uselesness by messing around with names of structures in Cebu and other provinces.

You are not a Christian if you do not believe in the Resurrection of Jesus who is God. Your democracy is false if your faith is sold to Philippine elections. The Marcos-Cory legacy makes democracy in the Philippines a farce with constituencies ruled by a rotating class of oligarch politicians who buy votes mostly with cash.

And try recalling the time when Sinulog was fully curtailed but Nazarene mass devotions were partially permitted in Manila. Cases did not spike massively then contrary to "expert" WARNINGS. Expensive Sinovac vaccines that people detest were also not due for delivery at that time.
It is all China everywhere you turn and it is all because weakling Noynoy and servile Duterte allowed China to make us their province. The most detrimental country in the world to us became our "friend". Our communist-fascist friends even assigned their own Chinaman to assist our president every step of the way.

What the local government department person is saying is that the 23 billion pesos released first week of April to local units for lockdown ayuda will likely again be utilized for election vote buying by the officials doling it out. They're also limiting the Philhealth COVID deaths so more money can be passed to the hands of local officials. Dengvaxia was supposed to be the admin fundraiser for 2016 and now for 2022 it shall be Sinovac. Destructive policies are effectively unopposed here. Americans are fortunate to have the Republicans and Catholics+Evangelicals.
Big bad nice government. Wolves are creatures who have their place in this world, you simply do not want a particularly large one to pretend to be granny so it can devour you. Biden is that granny wolf who was asked in his first press conference if his being a very nice guy is the reason why mothers have dispatched their teenage kids to walk solo from Central America to the Texas border. No deportation, only the risk of assault or drowning along the way. We should also be glad he is generously giving away vaccines to illegals because this means the country has a surplus. Overall, America is the most humanitarian and the least racist. Biden subscribes to the Marcos-Aquino-Duterte-Xie paradigm of more bigger obtrusiver government is nicest.
Sick minds run the NBA and other sports leagues that ignore China atrocities while posturing wokeness in the arena of progressivist conceit.

Science and religion have less worth when taken for convenience and treated inconsistently.

The team at the Centre for Virus Research in Glasgow used a replica of the lining of our airways, made out of the same types of cells, and infected it with Sars-CoV-2 and rhinovirus, which is one of the most widespread infections in people, and a cause of the common cold. If rhinovirus and Sars-CoV-2 were released at the same time, only rhinovirus is successful. If rhinovirus had a 24-hour head start then Sars-CoV-2 does not get a look in. And even when Sars-CoV-2 had 24-hours to get started, rhinovirus boots it out. "Sars-CoV-2 never takes off, it is heavily inhibited by rhinovirus," Dr Pablo Murcia told BBC News.

Failure that has harmed countless lives should never ever be rewarded. Honor demands that one remove himself rather than continue increasing one's power and control after having demonstrated incapability of succeeding. Duterte and Tedros prefer the China communist way of doing things. You should not even be surprised that the info and tracing online app mobilized by the government was not even owned by it. Had been most probably reporting back to mama in China the entire time with all sensitive personal information from its subscription victims.
So very few here have actually died of the COVID-19 China virus. The lockdowns they have imposed for over a year were necessary for the scam to be monetarily successful for them. Enhanced Community Quarantine is the physical equivalent to your virtual imprisonment in FB or YouTube. It is not easy to tell who abuses us more. Government or the Social Media Giants? Too few governments are actually good and too many cyberspace behemoths are rotten. They do not want you to see them bend science and technology to suit their political and social agenda.

Thank you Ferdinand Magellan.
One year has passed and these are the measures World Health Organization alleges will supposedly prevent your infection by the China virus. The ones about enclosed spaces and ventilation seem more credible than the rest but taken as a whole, these are things we can do on our own with no intervention from AUTHORITY. Information is power as demonstrated by Swedes and Taiwanese. We don't need IATF and the military-police, shut them all in the background and our coronavirus situation will be either the same or better.
Case in point, old style public utility jeepneys are many times safer than those expensive air-conditioned made in China "modern jeepneys" that occupy more road space and carry less passengers. As long as the open air jeepney is moving along the air flow retards the IATF virus. Yet they have long been forcing us to wear face shields riding enclosed buses, taxis and "modern jeepneys" while doing nothing about our cramped sidewalks, etc. Good government is competent but limited government, not all-powerful tyranny. Go Burma, Pyongyang or China if you prefer that.

AP-NORC Poll: 1 in 5 in US Lost Someone Close in Pandemic -voanews.com
By close they mean close friendship or being a close relative to someone whom you are certain died of the China virus and for no other cause of death. You can see from that poll how serious the coronavirus situation in America is but in our case I do not know anyone who died and I do not know of anyone else who's been closely affected. That's why I do not take virus infection here seriously but what I take very seriously is the enhanced to the extreme madness of eternal lockdown.
Once again this is not to say the virus of China ought to be taken lightly. The Chinese disease can kill but curiously there isn't anyone here bothering to explain who it kills. It is all scare, scare, scare. Those graphs from Voice of America indicate that you are at the greatest risk if you are a black male over 85. This disease is racist, sexist and it spares the youngest while killing a significant percentage of the very oldest. Least affected by it are Orientals and Austronesians (like us) who are not in the far Pacific, and probably the pure Africans. Woke hypocritical polcorr proggie squeamishness blocks details as vital as this from consideration and discussion.
Labella, Rama support Duterte for VP plans, March 12, 2021 -sunstar.com.ph
Cebu officials urge...Senator Bong Go for president and President Duterte for vice president -philstar.com/the-freeman/2021/03/11/2083543
Biden is a much nicer personality in comparison to that other guy but don't mistake him for someone harmless. His first policy statement on the coronavirus crisis is summed up as DO AS I SAY. I remember Duterte saying that same thing to us everyday since March 2020 regarding the virus sent out by his favorite country and look where we are now. Not only do they not have the solution but they are the problem. Too much government. They like how nice the word progressive is when added to their name, never mind if the ensuing disaster is socialist and authoritarian.
Biden is a master politicker, a crafty veteran of the swamp but even if he was a credible intellectual (which he is not), Biden is older and emptier than President Reagan circa 1988. As National Review military historian Victor Davis Hanson says of this rubber stamp president under alternating control by Democrat swampers and radicals, "I don't think we have a president right now." China's guy assigned to Duterte is Bong Go and he has practically been declared a candidate to replace Duterte in 2022 who will slide down to vice president. The goal of China is to overthrow America from the global throne and henceforth dominate as it pleases. This is a country that systematically kills individuals and ethnic communities aside from polluting the sky and recklessly experimenting with dangerous viruses.
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty featured a rejected pop song extolling the totalitarian regime of Belarus, "I'll teach you how to dance to the tune, I'll teach you to take the bait, I'll teach you to walk the line." Obey, obey, obey. Will Fauci lockdowns become the new Daylight Saving Time and join the immune herd of weird practices that do nothing good for the public but are done anyway for the sake of doing?
Compared to other politicians Rama has superior personal qualities but inevitably the absence of political principles in practically every single one of them will tempt him to partake in something as harmful as the Duterte for 2022 VP gimmick. The bottom line being that the Duterte VP train is a sinfully mouthwatering free ride in getting election campaign vote buying funds. The coronavirus scamdemic is also all about money, it is unprincipled but that is the only principle of politics and government where we live. And one real China's man is going to be Duterte's president.

In that same post Villanueva had on FB right after Sinas was caught positive for coronavirus, he also included his own Chinese General Hospital swab document for the world to read. These top law enforcers disregard their own privacy so obviously they will also not hesitate to violate our joke-only laws that pretend to guard private personal information. Defund the police in America is madness. Give total power to the military-police in the Philippines is a hundred times that madness.
Open schools and businesses, they keep looking for self-serving excuses to deny us. It is not the virus they are scared of, it is normalcy. After how long they have kept this militaristic lockdown it will be hard for them relinquish the power to abuse. In the many places around the world where schools had reopened, little children cried to their parents, exulting in joy!
Is that the best they can do? I cannot believe how cheaply they think of the momentous historical turn we took when Magellan arrived and introduced the Philippine islands to Christ. Is it too much to ask a church not to violate its own religious freedom? Online almost always is garbage. Honor has been substituted with insult.
What kind of country gives the military-police the power to order all of you to stay at home just because it entered their mind that you should stay at home? A country of tyranny, a country of democracy in name only? A country where you can be killed with official sanction after a simple accusation of "communist" or "druggie" but this country is actually led by politicians allegiant to shabu-exporting Communist China.
You have two choices in 2022. The right choice is pro-American if you choose to survive as human and Christian.
Vaccine against Tagalog national language
You know what children in our non-Tagalog regions need? Protection not from the virus but from the law of our land. Your country has a constitution that is good only for Tagalogs, oligarchs and parasite politicians. Over two generations this constitution has preserved the Marcos system under which we worsen each year as it lives on as the most terrible and indestructible constitution in the world. Because of this constitution we have these politicians who deal in China drugs and China virus.
Bravo our good Archbishop but since your conference insists on praying the Oratio Propaganda, it should take a moment to ask if these same tactics the government applies on drugs and the China Virus are failing because of their same venality. Vietnam and Taiwan do not follow the commands of China therefore they are thousands of times better off than the Philippines and Indonesia. Look closer and decide if this is Crisis or Theater?
Understand human psychology as to why there are many who will be delighted at the opportunity to be rattan truncheon carrying military-police who are incentivized to strike and beat the hardheaded disobeyers of health theater protocol, many will take this job even if it is without pay. So very satisfying as in frat hazing.
Science? It depends. Rand Paul is a respected medical doctor and national politician unlike Fauci who is an expert in only one field. Quarantines and masking (never mind our ridiculous face shields) had for the year past been extremely effective worldwide against regular flu but hardly against China's virus pestilence. Theater is the correct word for those who uselessly spray disinfectant chemicals on streets, etc. Texas lifted its mask imposition and so far they remain alive.
Wenceslao: Muted commemoration “On March 16, 1521, when Pilipins was discovered by Magellan...” The song has grammatical and factual errors but became popular for its novelty and more importantly because it reminded us of a past that was crucial in transforming the islands in this archipelago into a nation. snstr.co/ceR
Just not this one. We Need a Department of Education
The 1521-2021 commemoration was deliberately forgotten by those orchestrating the lucrative covid-scamdemic but it should also be pointed out that Yoyoy Villame was a genius of the Cebuano culture. Yoyoy employed English lyrics in a way that would sound right to both discerning and tone-deaf listeners, you can't call that ungrammatical. And he has certainly imparted historical knowledge better to the young ones and the oldies who were not old once. Better than the superlousy Department of Education. Yoyoy inspired George Lucas to invent the Yoda of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back. I love Yoyoy and I love Max. The Department of Education of the past 50 years I hate.
Fascist salutes while posing with the president and his Chinese puppetmaster Go, if it can be described in the mildest manner, look creepy. The governor of Cebu was obligated to do this along with some other politicians but the next picture was a surprise. Gwen intentionally without a mask makes the others look like effeminate sissies especially the president's Visayas boy. Boy by the way in some Cebuano dialects mean sulugoon, male serf. So does Gwen continue on her brave new direction or go back to the old? Pick up the whip Gwen and discipline these scamdemic lockdowner puppies.
Conflicting thoughts in Tagalog fill the mind of the president. Pandemic no big deal but impose strictest and longest lockdown in all the world. We have endured in the past worse things (like what?). Mention giving away free masks without even thinking that the best and most cost-effective time for that would have been one year ago and that masks, lockdowns and sanitizing have near zero impact at this late point. He asks us in Tagalog not be be afraid because he will stay with us. Now that makes me really scared.
Have pity on the boys and girls who live in this country governed by braggarts boasting of Department of Sports, this and that. This country of yours has the shortest kids in the planet and you braggarts own the blame for it. Food is scarce and expensive (scamdemic made it even worse and I thought it was already bad enough throughout the Marcos-Cory generations). And the Pinoy braggarts teach them Tagalog stuff that similarly stunts these dwarf kiddies' brain development, therefore the lowest school test results in the world. 1Sambayan nationalism-socialism gonna cure that disease?
Great is God. Not is government. Corruption is our constitution
In 2021 we did not respectfully observe 500 years of the Christian journey to our islands and in 2022 our islanders will vote in an another corrupt election. We have allowed ourselves to be ruled by those who exploit the China virus scamdemic to the hilt.
Miriam worsened corruption in the Philippines. By popularizing by way of her discourse a populist framework of corrupt political life, Miriam unknowingly made us numb to the corruption born on September 21, 1972. Corruption hence became an election campaign driver instead of a strict metric for evaluating individual official performance and the overall tolerability of the governing system.
Corruption sets in the first time an official goes outside the boundaries of his designated functions. To give an example that is difficult for most people to understand, the Philippines became a corrupt country the moment it moved to convert to Tagalog. In the first place this country was not created and would never have been created if the outright purpose was the creation of an all-Tagalog republic. Second there is corruption in all countries, it is unavoidable and as Gloria wisely undertook, you do what you can to moderate it. Anyone who runs with the claim to be that special someone to eliminate corruption is without exception a scammer politician.
Sen. Josh Hawley: 'Our Rights Come from God, Not Google.' This was at a conservative national conference in America. In the Philippines, your rights come from Duterte who is the government until his expiration in 2022. Jonah Goldberg of The Dispatch reminds us the job of an intellectual is to tell the truth, he always disapproves of those who game in popular front politics.
Oratio Propaganda, enough, enough, enough. Rama cried real tears back when he realized that no matter what he does as the only physically and intellectually healthy high official of Cebu City to rescue Sinulog, the police-military and government doctors will shut down or shoot down our Catholic traditions. 1521. We would have no history and no country if Magellan came not and even that would have been forgotten had the Spaniards not sent a third fleet 44 years after. Spain and Mexico we owe for who we are. Pray yes but more than that condemn the agents of Chinese coronavirus.
What differentiates conservative from progressive? If we reduce politics to black and white those are the only two kinds. Conservatives seek the good in the past and present so they can have something to guide the future. Progressives concentrate on what they consider to be bad at the moment and invent what they think will be good for everyone, including those who disagree. National socialism, Hitler and China cannot by this measure be categorized conservative, so in a black and white political world they are that other one.
What makes our oligarchic Nazi country different from the rare civilized republic which the US is? Pence pictured below on the day of the DC Capitol riot conferring with police on the street illuminates several things about the American way of life.
Like many others in America, Pence is a decent and competent politician. He went out to help in the DC streets during the January 6 commotion and spoke to officers of the peace like a normal man to normal men. Republican Pence tried to do his duty in a capital city competely under the control of Democrats who did nothing to secure it beforehand. Compare him to the ranking doctor of a major Manila medical center injecting himself gloveless with Sinovac but fully armored in biowarfare gear.
Dr. Doom Fauci acting like the high priest of the coronavirus religion is the last person I want to be in charge of my health. Conservatives prioritize controlling themselves. Progressives cannot wait to control others. Woke progressivisticism provides the reason why they coincided with their vaccination week those consecutive days of alarming daily case counts counted using the inaccurate counting thresholds of their multifangled swab tests. Vaccinate a token few more, present less counts, and voila, congratulations self!

Cuomo deliberately undercounted aged care home deaths in NY. He had his own self serving political reasons for doing so. New York's governing harasser did not have an incentive to overcount because personally it would not profit him monetarily and the crisis environment itself was all too real. In 2020 the carbon and road death counts (CO2-climate change, traffic accidents) did not budge in spite of severe economic curtailment forced by the China virus. China pollution output even increased in 2020, all of which defied conventional wisdom.
But if you want to be alarmed, let it be the kill order blurted out by Duterte this month for communists. As they did with druggies before, the centralized national police have been given free hand to shoot anyone who for any reason is alleged to be this or that, more kudos if they report somebody fought back. Consider yourself fortunate that many other places in the world need vaccines much more than we do although our crazy eternal lockdown quarantine imposition fabricates the impression that we have the worst situation.
Vaccines of Pfizer and Astra-Zeneca originate from the countries that are in the direst need and while they are outputing heroic quantities these are barely enough for their own requirements currently. It is doubtful Russia can even partially meet external orders for the Gamaleya product while the low quality China variant vaccines are derived from the oldest technology subject to manufacturing unreliability issues.
After their first week wherein they could only manage 4,000 Sinovac daily, they are now boasting that this will soon be in the hundreds of thousands. But in that initial span where less than a million arrived by plane, and after having dramatized so many public simulations, they could only serve 29,000 jabs. If it takes one decade then there will be two incoming presidents who'll see this through. 'Too little too late' was the Cito Beltran column on Philippine Star last March 1 in which he dismisses this vaccination zarzuela.

President Duterte has called on the nation to help free women from the “bondage of inequality,” citing their indispensable role in the country’s progress. Duterte asks Filipinos: Help free women from 'bondage of inequality'
Similarities are aplenty concerning the 2020-21 coronavirus lockdown and 1972-86 Martial Law. Marcos employed the communist bogey and this time around it is virus from China being used to scare us into dog-like submission. When was the year when women were not free, were unequal and oppressed in Christian areas of the Philippine Islands? I don't know but I know that there were two international reports last year that described our school-age children in the worst possible way. Bugo. Putot. The worst underachievers and the shortest in height.
'Too little too late' also applies to the visit to Iraq, one of the last bastions of Catholic-Orthodox Christianity alongside Lebanon and Syria. After Saddam was ousted and Islamic jihad raged, the Christians of Mesopotamia were for the most part driven away or killed. Peace is not more powerful than war. Peace does not seek power, and if it did, that would make it tyranny.
Conservative voices can be heard in America by those who have not been captured by mainstream media while in "progressive" Philippines we are all prisoners of militarized lockdown. The first states in America to discard Fauci regimentation are those led by conservative governors, by the defenders of individual liberty. By opening the economy they restore normalcy and discard the abnormal.
Last month the national-central police commanded Valentine celebrants to divert their horny inclinations to virtual dates aka go online Tiktok YouTube Messenger Zoom, perform porno stunts. Now they have issued yet another selectively enforceable directive disseminated in official modernized standard Tagalog against all intimacy for everyone. Only when I read the Englishized version did I understand this newest act of fascist control. Bangko Sentral has also been blasting Tagalog text messages to you but so very strangely these are about the scammers making hay in the scamdemic fabricated by government.

Teachers urge Duterte to rethink decision on face-to-face classes
The president stated on March 1 that he envisions the country returning to normalcy in 2023 therefore we can expect him to continue the insanity of shutting down schools and the economy as he keeps moving the goalposts of the coronavirus game. Somebody seems to love abnormal a great deal. Education is important and it is not just for educating our undernourished short kids. Normal school operations mean parents can go to work properly.
I had little idea how lousy awful their remote schooling implementation is until I stumbled on a Grade 5 public school paper module asking the pupil to write down his thoughts on how Microsoft PowerPoint can be applied to poster creation. Not that I think there are zero pupils capable of manipulating presentation software but who in his right mind will presume that all families can afford the luxury of a desktop Office suite that costs several thousand pesos? Or that technical writing gifts are superabundant in the ten-year-old population? Nuts, DepEd. Lowest score in the world.
The nation of Cebu needs a leader.
Gov. Gwen Garcia facebook
Governor Gwen Garcia found the recommendations to place Cebu in lockdown on the basis of mutations of the Covid-19 virus detected here to be "strange, if not premature". "Ay mo'g pataka dinha pang-rekomendar og lockdown, sayunan lang mo, no? Wa man gani mo mang-rekomendar og lockdown sa mga Metro Manila cities nga tag-as pud kaayo ang mga positive cases. I wonder why? Is it because ni-announce ko nga Cebu is open for domestic tourism now?" Garcia noted, adding that the lockdown would further hurt the Province's economy. #DontMessWithCebu

Shortage _ Alex Magno (The Philippine Star) - February 18, 2021

We have a food price regime higher than other neighboring countries. That explains high levels of poverty and malnutrition – along with their secondary effects such as poor literacy and low IQ levels.
There is no justice in putting the survival of inefficient producers over that of poor consumers. Our consumers have been screwed for too long by fake economics of protectionism.
In the Sunday reading's Genesis passage, Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac. God was pleased with the patriarch's absolute willingness to follow Him and he was blessed with the legacy of a great nation that lives on thousands of years later to this day.

Or be struck like the non-Cebuano archbishop of Cebu who kept silent when Fiesta Senor Santo Nino was cancelled even as Manila's Nazareno feast was just half curtailed.

Gwen posted a European report questioning if covid testing magic had been used to create an illusion intended to hype a supposedly out of control virus pandemic. That of the less than three million deaths attributed to coronavirus #19, a large number did not die of it per se or may never had been adversely infected before dying of other causes. (carmagop.com/PCRTesting-WerewWeDuped-9.pdf _ recommended high cycle count CT for PCR tests would produce an exorbitant number of false positives for COVID)
BBC is a guilty participant in the covid fake news of the century enterprise. BBC is slightly better than others in the mainstream media but their distortion of the Papua status to crisis proportions should be pointed out. Only a total of 5 deaths as of last September and rising to just 12 total this month yet on the first of March their 'Covid map: Coronavirus cases, deaths, vaccinations by country' daily update stated: "Papua New Guinea is currently the worst-affected country in the region after seeing a recent spike in cases." That is a big lie.
Tanzania has hovered in the 20 deaths 500 infections range this year, so it was once again strange yet familiar seeing another alarming headline hyping infection armageddon in an African country that is not one of those colder mixed race (or high Neanderthal strain) places that China's virus favors.

In this government's covid comedy we saw this laughable episode where DILG threatened Gwen for defying in Cebu their quarantine overkill policy and then the following day going through the motions of lifting travel passes nationwide and then the following day deciding to maintain the extreme quarantine lockdown of the Manila region.
Their enjoyment of unlimited covid powers has been so addictive that they will never voluntarily end the forever quarantine fed psychoactively by their forever coronavirus zarzuela. "Federalism was Duterte’s campaign promise" was the Philstar column of Carmen Pedrosa last January 31 in which she pathetically evaded making the logical conclusion after it has long been clear that nothing is ever going to happen and that we have deteriorated into even worse fascistic nationalist centralism than from the time of Noynoy. Duterte has caused us more harm and so will the next president. Who might also remove more of our old Christian holidays but retain the new Chinese/Muslim ones.
China's virus has to date produced many more covid millionaires than either actual or alleged covid deaths. Scam is the word. Soliven's column (Wretchedness _ Philstar) ragingly thunders "While many countries have learned how to deal with the aggressive virus, we seem to be defeated by it in many ways. Why can’t we conquer the virus? Why can’t we learn to live with it?"

Before anything else, let's mark out a distinction to those who criticize the president without any objective basis, to those who malign him not because of difference of opinion but because of conflict of their vested interests. Here is an example from the Tagalog ABS-CBN camp.
As happy as we should be that Tagalog broadcasting stations will find it harder to broadcast to us, it is not easy to ignore the faults of President Duterte, of the tough guy president who normalized the Tagalog cuss word putang ina. Many might find it adorable just as they did with Estrada but there is something wrong with this man, even more bizarre is like president like spokesman.

And we probably would be very understanding of these officials' fragile emotional state of mind if only they were performing a good job or even just a half good job. Yet these guys cry about insinuations hurting their feelings, punctuated occasionally by the Tagalog putdown word manigas ka. So very confusing as in Biden professing devout Catholicism but committing to abortion on demand and gender bending.

American children AFAIK are those not older than 17 and being about ten percent of the infected American population, at least some of us should be interested in knowing how many of those who died from China's virus are from this age bracket, or are from the middle bracket, and then the old senior bracket. Knowledge is our most powerful weapon against the China virus and now that the expected whitewash of the WHO investigation of the Wuhan origin has completed, we need to come up with the truth on our own. Just don't ask the Chinaman whisperer of the president about it.
Right here they are too busy playing their game of scamdemic overblowing coronavirus in the Philippines such that gross neglect of other killer diseases and the threadbare sufficiency of local food production bites us deeper and deeper. It is the corrupts and the incompetents who brought this spate of historically high prices of foodstuffs and they are the ones who gain from our pain. Let us envy the bravery of the Burmese and Hongkongers who rise up against totalitarian abuse by the national socialists in power.
Back here we have the police ordering cancellation of Sinulog and parading on the street the quarantine violators they arbitrarily catch. Call it Soviet, call it Maoist, Islamic State Qaeda, Khmer Rogue or North Korean gangnam style, they will call it done in good faith. Read the Valentine message of the police, their mission has been changed and it is now to control your life.
Insofar as Biden is concerned, it is in our self-interest to hope he will not fail in keeping America away from harm. As far as Europe is concerned, there isn't much we can hope for from a place where too many leaders are like Francis. The man is preoccupied with Burma's undying junta or campaigning for a Copernican (whatever that means) world ecology and sociology instead of defending us against anti-Christian terror and fighting abortion in Argentina and Biden's America. But even worse than the pope is the useless mayor of Cebu.
Why stop at two masks, why not three or four or five? I've read that many times from others. Sales and marketing is the art and science of selling stuff. Now that the vaccine racket has been cornered they want to scrape the bottom of the barrel with more mask sales, simply beautiful. Scare people, and if that does not work profitably enough, force people. Kickvac, kickback, call it anything you want, it smells sweetly all the same to the ones in government pocketing the money.
The Republican Party is the most admirable political organization in the world. In the second impeachment farce, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy allowed their legislators to do as their conscience dictated and as prescribed by their good constitution. The mob does not own them.
Gloria was our country's most worthy president and during her time it would have been inconceivable that someone like Lacson would be the voice of dignity in 2021. He is shamed by the government's ass-lick kowtowing to China and scheming to extort America. Most people here would have wanted Trump punished for the unproven charge of incitement to insurrection even if he is no longer in office. So easy to look for fault in others but not in your own self, in your own president.
Lady Gaga Robredo had this controlled classroom reopening gimmick months back but now, to demonstrate once more how equally rotten as Duterte she is, the VP is screaming alarm at the reopening of more business establishments, regardless of how long the coronavirus dictators have delayed this. They are all in for big government and big abuse. Weeks ago the Pangilinans uploaded footage of the president demoing the National ID machine which then popped up his official personal card. He held it in his hand but when it was zoomed inward, the ID was an older one belonging to a different person not named Rodrigo Duterte. They deceive you because they have all the reason to believe that you accept their lies.
Of late it has been determined in America after multilateral coordination that the most efficient distribution of the vaccine would be straightfoward targeting of the 65-year plus population as this would certainly result in the swiftest reduction of China virus deaths overall. Hopefully they remain sensible there unlike us here who are maneuvering to exploit (our less urgent) vaccination for election vote buying, etc.

Good Leadership Is About Asking Good Questions hbr.org
In his February 3 podcast, Jonah Goldberg of The Dispatch demolished the pernicious mentality about the president being the daddy of a country, of being the leader whose authority is to be followed unconditionally. Congress is meant to be the superior branch of government, theoretically because your direct representative is there to stand for you. Other hand, the central-national scope of the executive branch translates to it not owing you much of anything. Leadership that does not consider every important side slithers to self-destructive tyranny. Duterte brashly takes responsibilty for anything because no one can hold him accountable anyway.
Trump's similarity to Isko and Duterte ends in their being celebrity-empowered politicos who lucked into riding one wave of populist demagoguery or another. The difference is that once elected, Trump had a real political party with him while over here in the Philippines, everything has been organized along the personality cult lines of national socialism since the time of Marcos and then Cory. This is what allows and motivates them to prolong the regime of lockdown and scam. Trump needed the Republican Party and never was it the other way around. America has strength that it needs to preserve, the Philippines only has weakness and it seems to want to become worse.
Corruption is all around
Is it a corrupt country that had imposed mask wearing on car drivers who are by themselves alone inside their vehicle from March 2020 up to January 2021? This president and the one before him advertised their anti-corruption single-mindedness but we never became better. More regulations, more power, more corruption from 2010 to 2022.

Poland's economy shrank 2.8% during 2020 due to the pandemic, ending three decades of constant growth, according to preliminary figures released by the national statistical office.
The economy plunged to its lowest last year since 1946 when government first started coming out with the data, contracting by 9.5 percent. (thanks to self-inflicted Philippine lockdown harakiri)

While he reiterated that his resignation was irrevocable, Baguio City mayor Benjamin Magalong admitted that he “cannot refuse” should President Rodrigo Duterte ask him to stay in his post as contact tracing czar. Baguio City mayor admits he ‘cannot refuse’ if Duterte asks him to stay - February 2
In a government comprised of qualified personnel (elected and appointed), you wouldn't see one of the coronavirus czars gracing a celebrity party where the partygoers ignore every protocol of the lockdown knowing full well that one of the highest authorities was present. Because they know exceptions are made all the time in corrupt countries. Corruption is less of a problem if more government personnel possessed competent qualification, that is why corruption harmed us less during the 2001-2010 administration. Now it is back to the Marcos-Aquino stink.
Marcos and Aquino made possible a national culture for the Philippines, the culture of corruption. The corrupt prefer that children be kept away from the schools, the only places where they can be properly educated. Lockdowns as they found out quickly are a nice way to make easy money. World Health Organization abetted China in spreading the Chinese virus globally in the first two months of 2020. WHO has no right, to repeat, this corrupt organization has no right to castigate hard-hit Europe for hoarding vaccines, the same vaccines developed by and manufactured by Europeans and Americans.
Education department is corrupt, that is why the education system it has dictated since the 1970's is continuously defective and substandard, lowest worldwide. One surefire way of encouraging more corruption is when the president absolves those who blunder while holding the tremendous powers and responsibilities appointed to them. No accountability, many corruptions. Many people would rather forget Angelo Reyes. He was a man of honor, the kind of man we had more of in the past. Blessed are those who have good men and women in their government.

Burma and the Philippines are dystopian countries that are renowned for two world-famous widows worshiped as democracy leaders/icons. These two women had actually facilitated the transition of national socialist fascist elements in their respective countries to democratically-cloaked oligarchies. Burma has for 60 years had a panoply of generals and cohorts overseeing trades so illegal you'd think you were in the Philippines. Chinese control has never been stronger in both. The new US president had renewed American weakening as a result of his populist-proggie executive orders and consequentially Pyongyang and Iran are resuming old behavior. Women and girls and boys do not benefit from state-imposed wokeness.

The NBA can celebrate every month as Black History month if it wants to, it should remind itself though that it is a sports league that has been dominated by Black athletes for decades. Left alone, nature and societies create their own balance. Boys are on the average inferior to girls bio-immunologically even if they are born with bigger brains, etc. Boys used to grow up to be productive men back when schools and megacorporations did not impose artificial limitations on them. Girls have a role that should be defended and boys should be allowed once more to carry the world. Radical genderism is destructive. So is China and its virus.
We should look up to America if we want to correct our grievous political, economic and cultural mistakes. They have leaders there who are not into crazy big government stuff. Government is not a substitute god.
Noem and SH Sanders are politically conservative women who are the opposite of interventionist progwokies Harris, Clinton and Warren. Just as Barrett is the opposite of politically motivated SCOTUS Justice Ginsburg. In national socialism, the government is the master and keeper of the livestock. Expect that from the likes of Robredo and the daughter of Duterte. It's gonna be the same same with them.
Know this before you allow them to jab you with the vaccine of death from China.
The president guarantees Sinovac, and as usual he is once again boasting he will take responsibility but the consequences of command responsibility were always evaded in the past. Marawi jihad, drug fiasco, systemic abuse, plus, plus, plus. We have gone through eleven months of scamdemic orchestrated by and supported by individuals whose incomes are not disrupted by the non-stop lockdowns. Their pockets are in fact enhanced by enhanced quarantines that exceed martial law. During that time, at least the Marcos minions pretended to give UP Diliman respectful distance.
400,000 American lives lost to China's virus since February 2020 is believable but if the figure officially released by Philippine authorities right after January 18, 2021 is 10,000 Covid-dead Filipinos, half may be true and half may be a lie. Falsified death declarations and test results are to be expected from scammers. Proof of their dishonesty is their refusal to immediately disclose the kick-vac cost of their chosen made in China poison. One in nine hundred Americans have so far been killed by that virus from China. No American will ever accept a 'vaccine' made using obsolete and dangerous technology by the source country itself and sold at an exorbitant price. And allegedly subject to non-disclosure.
My hero is not Lapulapu
In defense of Carbon _ Freeman by Clarence Paul Oaminal Dec 17, 2020
The Carbon Public Market is a Cebuano heritage site. Its privatization to an entity foreign to Cebu is murdering Cebuano culture and soul.
DICT / DOH / HPAAC: Maligayang Pasko! Huwag kalimutan ang APAT DAPAT para ligtas sa COVID-19 ang pagdiriwang ng Pasko. Kaya natin 'to!
Atty. Oaminal does not detail exactly how the Cebuano is going to be destroyed and who are going to do it so let me be the one to enlighten you. With help from that SMS text message blasted to the Visayas-Cebu-Mindanao nation as well as to the other non-Tagalog nations. It should be obvious to you that if and when Visayas-Cebu-Mindanao no longer has the Cebuano language then the Cebuano ceases to exist. Once he dies the national language, Manila's Tagalog, takes over our land and the imperial government will have won against us.
Imperial Tagalog Manila is not unassisted in this murder conspiracy, China is helping. Our accelerating loss of true Christian faith and its being supplanted by big government materialism makes the conspirators' job easier. Putang Ina and Gago are not words used by Robredo but she is much worse than Duterte in terms of Tagalogizing all manner of speech. At least the Cebuano Duterte occasionally blurts Cebuano phrases while the "Bicolano" Robredo is exclusively Tagalog. But far from becoming better under the Duterte presidency Cebu has never been this bad and is about to become worse and worse. Corruption is many things, one of it is nationalism.
Magellan more than anyone deserves to be our guy, we'd be nothing if not for him on 16th of March fifteen-twenty-one. Plenty of believable material about our savior and hero on Wikipedia, etcetera, but when it comes to the presently much more celebrated Lapulapu, never mind. So I checked out the webinar if they came up with unexpected revelations. Found none though it was a very quick scan of the Youtube stream I had to rush. They make up a lot of things in support of the Virus Scamdemic and very much the same has been done throughout our nationalist era about Lapulapu, faked stuff because historical info was almost non-existent. Mactan has always been one of the most barren spots in Cebu, hard to be a successful warlord there for long.
Lapulapu: The Conqueror of Mactan (2018) by Rolando Borrinaga was something I ran into middle of last year. Strange title about the man the Cebuanos hated so much they asked a visitor from Spain to kill him for them. I did not get much save for references to the Conqueror name suggesting Lapulapu had lived in Leyte or elsewhere. Since he was not Cebuano, he might have not even been Visayan for all we know. He certainly left no descendants ruling Mactan when Legazpi did the actual conquering four decades later. Tupas from the line of Humabon was there in the mainland as were two important objects of Christianity left behind by Magellan, the Cross and the Holy Child of Prague.
The shocking events of January 6 are political violence of the sort that too often mars elections in young or unstable democracies. Was it a coup? No, but siege on US Capitol was the election violence of a fragile democracy
If America is a fragile democracy then what would you call the Philippines? What? Progressive wokes in media, politics and academe are absolutely silly in their insistence on ridiculous notions. I refuse to accept an America that is not strong because they are the one hope of the world. In no other country are there that many institutional conservatives who stand for liberty and Judeo-Christian life. China is bad, America is good, and Europe, they've been astray with woke ridiculousness.
FoxNews had a Facebook comment from William Torpey, "Pelosi is calling Trump a dictator, but, remember, dictators don't get silenced. Dictators are the ones who DO the silencing!" after the internet monopolists kicked out the president from social media. America is not perfect but when it veers wrong, the mechanism for self-correction activates. Trump was a media celebrity fluke (not an authentic billionaire) with disastrous leadership potential but he wisely worked cooperatively with the conservative Republican establishment and America regained some strength. Reagan was less of a celebrity, he achieved more out of being a union leader in Hollywood.
Make America Great Again is dumb, it has remained great and for our sake we can only hope the weaklings who have electorally edged the Republicans just now will not go back to making America decline while jihad and China rise. Riots beget more riots, Democrats sought profit from BLM-Antifa lawlessness, and look where this led. Certain Trump supporters who'd been frustrated with the antics of progressive wokes thought they could get away with the same but unfortunately for them, they do not have the mainstream media and Francis on their side. Be careful when you chant Power to The People that what that entails is not giving even more authority to the government so it can "give" whatever to the "people". Bigger government is always badder government. If you are in a bad situation, you need the Republican Party.
With Lapulapu, the myth-making started with the machete/sword, shield and his bahag blinging an imagined perfect macho physique. Rizal had that outstandingly excellent Tagalog mastery extolling the tongue of the Malansang whatever, yet for all his documented greatness, they were never quite satisfied and had to elevate him as the equal of Jesus Christ. You can say it's insane or is blasphemy but to them they are just stepping in line with the demands of nationalism. The bad things I lump together, nationalism socialism big government. It is your choice, to reject them or to eat their propaganda sandwiched in MaLing luncheon meat, choco chips with mayonnaise. Right below you will see "Family Planning is a Human Right." Fools!
Experts in What, Exactly? | National Review by Michael Brendan Dougherty nationalreview.com/corner/experts-in-what-exactly
Expertise in scaring the public no doubt. Over in the US you have Fauci who is an expert but only in a narrow field in medicine and not the total health spectrum. I don't even think he is half as talented as the generals and presidential security guardsmen running the coronavirus show in the Philippines, endorsing China vaccines for the Chinese virus. If you know why there are several thousand of those guards, please tell us. And then we'll talk about the tomato above, the one sold for 150 pesos per kilo these past four months. Our economy is not going to go from bad to good. Blame the insane lockdowneristas.
"Heightened concern for our country’s stunted children" by Karlo Nograles (Philippine Star January 12, 2021) is an admission by somebody in the executive department that this country is going to the dogs. Shortest nationality in the world getting shorter because of worsening nutrition. Also the same reason for the poorest education test scores. Yeah, please go on feeding them the Tagalog national language.
And so the most important religious and civic festivity of the Cebuano nation was canceled; one minor official named Rama did plead for it to proceed but was ignored by the lockdown dictators. Prior to that the president's mouthboy came to Cebu to demonstrate that the rules of coronavirus tyranny are not applicable to government mandarins.
When Velasco took for himself the voting privilege of deceased congressman Raul del Mar, I couldn't believe it as several Cebu politicians expressed their gratitude to Velasco for this usurpation. The mayor of Cebu has proven time and again there are only three things occupying his brain: quarantine, lockdown and slavish devotion to unlimited government authority. It is wrong to attribute the archbishop's tepid reaction to Sinulog cancellation to his not being a Cebuano; there had never been a Cebuano bishop of Cebu so stop wondering why Cebu is weak.
And then there is the governor of Cebu, symbolically (in theory) the highest official or leader of the Visayas-Cebu-Mindanao nation. I can hear the ABBA song playing as I size up her desire to be the goddess of the Cebuano masses. Gwendolyn Garcia posted this: Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my beloved Cebu and of ways to make the Cebuanos’ lives better. And was being the first one in the Philippines to infix the lockdown mania the way to do that? She backtracked many months later after seeing its suicidal consequences especially after the senseless deaths of her brothers in our predatory hospitals but is now playing safe in the political game of self-interest.
It was non-Cebuanos who made the decision to exterminate Sinulog. Their alternative was to force us further into the exploitative world of online social media self-destruction. Does this mean we need federalism or whatever their latest constitution change gimmick is all about? Way, way too late is the hour of day. Mid-2017 it might have worked but it has to be pointed out that the "reforms" they pursue are not real, it will functionally still be the same Marcos-Cory system. Renamed Bayanihan or some other garbage name.
In America the process for modifying the constitution is reasonably hard but it is mostly up to the state-regions. Here everyone can throw a monkey wrench at it, SC, election commission, central legislature, executive flunkies - that's why not one amendment has ever gotten to first base. And it's not just that they can't do it, there is no reason that the worst government in the world will actually want to replace the worst constitution in the world. Take no part in their pretense. It's just a diversion so they can jab China poison to your arm.
“For the full year, we added a record 37 million paid memberships, achieved $25 billion in annual revenue… and grew operating profit 76% to $4.6 billion.” Netflix Surpasses 200 Million Subscribers
Online-ization of local life as promoted by the lockdown authorities pushes us down further to economic rot and autarky. Big tech companies like the international social media giants are the only ones whose businesses thrive from internet sales, we don't have anything like that. The only means for parents and children to generate cash from it is to pose nude using their connected devices and with their performance of made to order sex acts. DepEd and all participants in the scamdemic are complicit in this. And so it goes on, government gives away salary hikes to its own personnel and uses vaccination for vote buying purposes. And then they will inflict more pain on you because all that exorbitant unnecessary stuff need be paid at some point.
The month they curtailed Manila Black Nazarene and shut Cebu Sinulog
Long, long ago should they have ended the coronavirus lockdowns but it isn't something they will do right away no matter what. There are vested interests in selling face shields, masks, other paraphernalia, high cost test kits, etc. that wait for more money to be made while we suffer economic contraction. As proof of their profitable failure, I cite the Oratio Imperata of the Catholic bishops that remains unanswered by our God for one year because it is the wrong prayer. God is not going to give us the cure for a scam, one that is a made in the Philippines scam. Just so they can sell more of those not needed importations from China, the maker of viruses.
Please look up "The welcome spoiler" by Cito Beltran (The Philippine Star-January 18, 2021). It's all about the vaccine and hospital racket for robbing money and life from the public. They also charge exorbitantly in America but at least they are known to come up with novel treatments that reach the rest of the world. Our hospitals, zilch, just novel scams victimizing rich and poor, taking advantage of China's global biowarfare.
Nothing too impressive about the message of Elizabeth II (nominal head of the Anglican Church) but it was appropriately Christ-centered and did not call our Lord an outcast. Note the difference between the minority Pakistanis hearing mass last Christmas and Manilenos dressed for viral warfare with face shields plus masks, 'disinfected' hands and shoes. There are two words that begin with C. One is courage and that is a word tiny minority Catholics who are cruelly oppressed in Pakistan can proudly claim. The other C word, never mind.
If Cebu region was a European country, its size would be somewhere just below the middle. In the EU, Pakistan and Philippines would be top three. Philippine and Pakistani death and infection tallies for January 2021 are close. But both are well under the death and infection percentage rates of the EU, both their situations are concerning but not paralyzingly fearsome. To better illustrate this, try a bit of analysis on this news item. You'd be aghast and hysterically screaming Black Lives Matter if you don't take a deeper look.
US police have killed 135 unarmed Black people since 2015: report _ aljazeera.com January 26
The non-centralized police in America have also killed unarmed White people during that time. Hundreds more in fact so while it is concerning, it should not be used to mislead political agenda. But that is what has happened, it is also what has been done with coronavirus 'statistics' in the Philippines. Assuming they have not padded the death toll and transmission incidences by a multiplication factor of times two, our overkill policies would certainly be rejected outright by even the hardest hit European countries and American states because their governments are not built for suckering the population.
How Taiwan Won 2020: By Trusting Its Citizens, and Distrusting the Chinese Communist Party nationalreview.com/corner/how-taiwan-won-2020-by-trusting-its-citizens-and-distrusting-the-chinese-communist-party
Governments not beholden to the China communists would not fake the impact of China's virus, they would not scare and mislead the population as is done in the Philippines. There were two days last month in America where the total of confirmed new positive cases for just those two days exceeded the current running total for January 24, 2021 alleged by the Philippine government for the whole country. Many times since they toned down the covid zarzuela last August have I seen the health department report zero daily deaths for Cebu region yet cities, towns and barrios still abruptly ramp up lockdown restrictions on the public. For zero deaths? For perspective, even without China coronavirus, around one and a half million in the Philippines would have died last year anyway. I believe the correct word for that is life expectancy.
No European country is behaving foolishly like it is already doomsday but if Cebu region was a country there, it would be considered the safest place to be. Cebu region official death rate of 25/100,000 (less actually because of official padding by scammer officials) is eight times less than the worst-hit European countries. Local-national officials are now hesitant to fake more scarier death figures but are still playing around with the new positive infection daily announcements depending on the scenario they wish to manipulate.
They want us to trust them blindly and to believe 'scientists' like the pro-lockdown UP Octa Research. Forget about UP Diliman being red-tagged for the moment by pro-China 'anti-communists', just take a look at their complete barricade of the entire Academic Oval, a stretch where joggers round up a couple of kilometers and where tens of thousands can occupy it while adhering to optimal 'social distancing' rules. Only unscientific minds would suppose that this barricade is needed to halt the UK-SA variants of China's virus. These are your pathetic higher educators so stop wondering why the shameful lower educators have produced the lowest international scores for pupils taught by our schools. UP used to be Asia's best. No more.
Tyrannical states like Turkey and the Philippines play magic with their virus numbers, not to mention the mother of coronavirus itself China. Burma-Myanmar officially stated a paltry one-fifth or 1/5 or just 20% of their infections and mortality from three months earlier in contrast to end of year 2020 so the hocuspocus is undeniable. Same rate-proportion now as the Philippines' although in our weirdly corrupt country everything points in the opposite direction to an overcount as result of multiple double counting and outright falsification.
Astra-Zeneca vaccine cost is less than the cheapest saliva test (if you have access to Red Cross), half actually and more than twenty times less than the China test kits that arrived when the coronavirus fad first became fashionable. Hard to say if there is even one opposition senator who is honorable but what they are saying about kickvac is the genuine article. Tests and quarantines lose usefulness in the later stage of actual pandemics, and as for vaccines, show me first that we need it more than Belgium does or even just ten percent. Someone is just after money.
Having both the highly incompetent and deviously corrupt handling what in all truth is in the Philippines a minor coronavirus situation does not portend improvement any time soon for us. They can allege all they want that those insane restrictions controlled the virus outbreak ergo our still low cumulative figures. But if those official Cebu region rates as of August were scientifically truthful, the proven incompetence of personnel in the health and bureaucracy sectors would have exacerbated our helplessness in that scenario of being about to be wiped out as a population. In. Other. Words. It's a lie.
And if there is no actual pandemic, then it is a scamdemic.
We are lucky, even if we don't deserve it, that the virus of China thrives in Europe and the Americas but not so much here. We are unlucky, even if we don't deserve it, to have too much of this kind of national and local governments.
Weird virus status of Indonesia-Philippines suggest colonization of their ultra-central governments by communist China
Voice of America - VOA
Vaccine Seen as Potentially Shoring Up China’s Image in Indonesia, the Philippines -January 2, 2021
Chinese supply of a COVID-19 vaccine to Indonesia and the Philippines is likely to strengthen Beijing’s image in those countries, despite current resentment of its expansion in the South China Sea, if the vaccines work, analysts say.
Both countries have moved to order vaccines made by Sinovac Biotech, a Beijing-based pharmaceutical company, according to Asian media reports and the company’s website. China’s official Xinhua News Agency in October had called it “crucial” to distribute vaccines “around the world, not just the wealthy nations.”
People in both countries resent Chinese expansion in the 3.5 million-square-kilometer South China Sea where sovereignty claims overlap. China, with Asia’s strongest military, has built up islands that the Philippines claims and passed ships through waters that Jakarta says fall within an Indonesian exclusive economic zone. The sea is prized for fisheries and undersea energy reserves.
It's a Chinese Coronavirus Christmas around the world -December 26
The Philippine covid crisis is a fake crisis exploited and milked by government officials. The same does not hold true for countries in Europe and the Americas. They coped with actual epidemics and did not go overboard. Any leader in the place of Trump would most likely have taken the same measures he did while if you interchange the varying policy approaches of individual states in supposedly united Europe there would scarcely be any difference in outcomes. China Virus kills who it means to kill. It's just that it does not kill as much in Asia. America knows that Mexico deserves their vaccine.
