What the Church can do
Theater has been overused as a metaphor in this DILA blog but you can blame that on the Faucis of this world whose policy misdirections still victimize us needlessly after dispersal of the killer virus by China in January 2020 from their Wuhan lab. Theater is done best by stage magicians, even better than stage actors, it is not real but they make you believe it. How many have actually been killed by COVID in the Philippines and who are those who have really succumbed to COVID infection? We need to know how much of the government's statistics is falsified.
Transubstantiation is real otherwise if this also is just magic the implication for you is no Christ, no Christian, no you. This is why my ears hurt whenever the Oratio Imperata is recited at the end of lockdown-restricted Sunday mass. Old and new version, it is premised on lies peddled by government about the COVID of China. The conference has insisted on this for over a year, heedless that God is displeased at their incessantly asking for the same thing without thinking He has already addressed our predicament. WE ARE STILL ALIVE, God acted in the beginning to keep deaths in the Philippines from the China virus as low as possible, we are the only ones making it bad for ourselves and bringing out greater suffering. Christianity is not weakness but fidelity, courage and strength.
Our Mother warned us 104 years ago not to insult God anymore. Back then an even bigger coronavirus was killing tens of millions more, maybe even accounting for a big fraction of World War I casualties. We please God by taking care of His people. Tagalog hymns creeping back into Cebuano masses after the two years I happily stopped hearing these sung in Sunday Catholic worship, it is a different kind of coronavirus trespassing the Cebuano church. Long ago I asked them why and they said it is what they think the churchgoers want to hear them sing. Their ideal of the church experience apparently is entertainment.
Biden once called Neanderthal those who throw their masks though they already have been vaccinated. Now he bikes maskless, which goes to show one can be very wrong about the virus. France recently revised its infection stat because it became clear they were double counting since the start. Remember that they had also counted as COVID deaths everyone who died in 2020 with antibody positivity regardless of whether there's evidence the dead person was specifically killed by the virus causing irreversible damage to the system for respiration. After some time, it had also become clear that at least in the countries with the most trustworthy recordkeeping, very few individuals below age 50 are mortally affected by the killer virus from China, variants notwithstanding all the same.
America, and eventually India, has put under control the virus deployed worldwide by the Chinese Communist Party. America has a certain racial mix and so has India. Asians tally the lowest mortality percentage in America and this should even be lower if you narrow the group to Oriental Asian and Austronesian, excluding those from India and westward (whose vulnerability is higher). This virus is biased with respect to age and race, the one that killed the Marto children of Fatima in 1918 did not discriminate and killed over ten times more than COVID-Wuhan-China has in the same duration.
The gross mortality in America (600,000) is probably exaggerated on the safe side but the mortality proportions for sex, age, race and comorbidity should be accurate and this is what is useful to us in assessing fraud in our own official bookkeeping.

Mindanao outpaces Metro Manila in new COVID-19 infections -June 6
People who dropped by to get vaccinated at a pop up vaccination clinic being held at the It’s Official Barbershop in Chicago, Illinois were offered a free haircut.
The Philippines on Sunday received one million more doses of Sinovac as part of its procurement of the Chinese drugmaker's COVID-19 vaccine.
The CDC announced that more than 300 million vaccines doses have so far been administered across the country.
US surpasses 300 million COVID-19 vaccine shots administered
Is it a race against time to inoculate the country so coronavirus will not destroy it? If so, then the government's vaccination "accomplishment" will fall far short and we are all going to die. Leo XIII and Benedict (Ratzinger) are the two Catholics who have influenced the universal church most greatly in its modernity. They are like this conservative writer who remembers prior to Harvard Law being lashed at by a professor for his monkey patriotism and decades later remains glad not to be a nationalist monkey. Conservation of what is good should be in the mind of God's people, they should cope with technological and social change, not surrender to it.
Department of Health is a misnomer, their mission is to maim the population per the social-cultural mutation agenda of central authority. They cannot be serious about protecting us in this coronavirus crisis if the "information" they disseminate is in Tagalog and if their primary task is dropping scare bombs wherever they please to keep the scamdemic alive. America's conundrum is they are running out of incentives to vaccinate Americans who increasingly feel their country returning to proper health. Their vaccines are the genuine article and we are bound to get some.
Which is why it is critical to know the real vulnerability profile in our country. The solution could be a simple mandatory inoculation (non-Sinovac) only of everyone above 65, say less than ten million individuals, twenty million doses. Everyone else who wants it, let Red Cross sell it to them, at least we know they're putting the proceeds to good use. Truth sets man free. We can end the insane lockdown if not now then next month. But not if the government continues to want what it wants.
Americans in Coronavirus Pandemic: Soft and Spoiled? | National Review By Jay Nordlinger June 7, 2021
Plague is nothing new — nothing new to mankind. Ohio has started a lottery, to induce people to get vaxxed. The governor of West Virginia has started offering people guns, trucks, and cash. I’m afraid that people of the past would consider us the softest, most spoiled people ever. Too soft to live; too spoiled to live.

N.Y.C. Mayor Debate Live Updates: Top Candidates Face Off for Third Time -nytimes.com
There are many small things those who front for the church can do for us. Rare as it is that a sermon castigates parents who let children amuse themselves with smartphones at mass, rarer still is the priest who condemns the cancerous practice of politicians buying the votes of voters who sell their vote. Some do but very few. Going to the bigger things, take PPCRV as an example, their existence is supposedly founded on the importance of making people vote responsibly. That is not what they are doing. All they do is make as many individuals as possible vote in any given election no matter what. No matter that rotten elections with rotten candidates produce only rotten results.
They can instead do something useful like force the serious contenders for mayor and governor to "debate" and answer questions. Distribute the video to the locals for their viewing displeasure. That will be so much better than tarpaulins and other litterbug paraphernalia. Give them opportunities to air out their vision for the local economy and describe their administrative philosophy (assuming such exist). Most are likely to expose themselves for having the same socialist doleout mindset that permeates our not not corrupt system.
Sin erred in the 1980s by justifying the acceptance of money from rotten sources in order to help the poor. Populists often pontificate about making sure the poor will have more of the law on their side. Wrong because the law should equally apply to all regardless of wealth and power. But even if it is justly applied it would still be pointless if you have mostly bad laws. Better to have no law in that case. And similarly if you keep getting governments with mostly bad officials, better to have no government instead. If your country has the same lousy constitution for generations, it's not a country worth living in.
The country has gotten crazier since 2010. Madmen are running the country. Theater and hubris are their solutions for answering all problems. Lawyers in Cebu are defying the COVID dictatorship but even if the court rules for them, the president of Imperial Manila has vowed to ignore the law. His minions say the governors have a free hand, but only if the provincianos impose stricter impositions than what central has been imposing. This is the strongest argument for dismantling the country. If they are so infallible, as they want us to think they are, then we'd all be healthy and rich. But we are not, on the other hand they are as fortunate as the founder of Black Lives Matter who pocketed the money.
Shields and dolomite beaches, all of it indicates you are a citizen of someplace not normal. Dengue is now a solved problem or have they been "dagdag-bawas" itchy fingers with non-natural deaths? Is it a sane country if the police is master of the voting process, the judge and jury of elections? Last June 19 a comment was posted by Facebook user Joselito Oliveros regarding "efforts" to deal with vote buying. "Politicians will buy votes and voters will sell. Better to pass a law fixing the minimum price a vote can be legally sold. Make it a hefty one."
While Senate President Vicente Sotto III has essentially spared Duterte — who gave the final word — from criticism and instead, took aim on "so-called experts" and further remarked: "Now, I know why the handling of the pandemic is not good." philstar.com/headlines/2021/06/23/2107670/senate-inquiry-sought-use-face-shields-vs-covid-19
“We will release the final school calendar for School Year 2021-2022 once we get the final approval of the President.

We are proposing that he choose among either August 23, 2021, September 6, 2021 or September 13, 2021,” DepEd said in a statement. philstar.com/headlines/2021/06/23/2107555/deped-next-school-year-may-start-late-august-early-september
Duterte hates Christians. He's definitely more approving of Muslims and the Chinese Communist Party. He, like every other Pinoy nationalist, is also a racist. Should we be worried about fentanyl? Maybe it explains the year-long face shield lunacy. If this is the kind of person the education department counts on to make decisions for the future of today's children, I'll have to agree in full with Jonah Goldberg. Jonah was asked in his Remnant podcast which are the most useless or harmful mainstays of national government and he immediately volunteered elimination of the education mafia, scattering to the wind the department's personnel.
There are some whose memory of former presidents who died include Ferdie, Diosdado and Cory. Not many would have expected Noynoy to be next since he was the youngest. In more ways than one he was a decent guy and the best thing I can say about him is that he taught us a few unfortunate lessons about this unreformable and uncorrectable republic that his successor converted to a province of China instead of decentralizing.
This macho dancer has saved enough to build a house, continues to earn by performing from home -gmanetwork.com/news/story/792382
Does the Church realize how much the Coronavirus Imperata scamdemic has destroyed our Christian society? To earn a living we are now supposed to sell live online sex webcam performances, the rehearsal for that is DepEd's Zoom K-12 curriculum. When did the Church start supporting government policies that have been impoverishing and perverting the Philippines? There has been strange stuff going on. The cardinal taking over Manila this month used to head the Archdiocese of Capiz, Advincula's native hometown and land of his mother tongue. Cebu keeps getting non-Cebuano bishops. Why, what is the reason the national hierarchy is preventing Cebuanos from serving the land they owe loyalty to? The one assigned always has no personal and cultural stake in Cebu.
On the last week of June a gigantic election billboard for Sara-Gatchalian was put up by impunity-empowered lawbreakers at the strategic corner of Mabolo, Cebu parish. We would be best served if this eyesore is defaced with markings of our displeasure, pick your color of tasteful graffiti. In the meantime let's invite our priests to reflect on how much their fault is rampant teen pregnancy. On how not taking care of the population the right way has jeopardized Catholicism in much the same way Cebuano has been endangered.
The best way to encourage good sized healthy nuclear families contributing to Catholic Christian strength is to remove bad regulations of both church and state that work against it. Church puts a high bar and price tag for family formation, government systemically marginalizes male breadwinners and subsidizes unwed motherhood. Less than ten percent of babies born in the last several years are legitimate offspring of church-married men and women. Six million pesos to have a child? The last time I saw babies in public were those carried by itinerant Badjao teenagers doing their thing in the sidestreets.
Look at that pregnant adolescent about to give birth to someone who will both be poorly nourished and poorly educated. Contrast her to one of the better actresses in America posing with her unborn, her daughters and her husband. Why has the Church lost sight of what is good for its future? They have become an unwitting accomplice in population control. Two generations now the young look for meaning instead at fraternity gangdoms. Only recently a female acquaintance mentioned they each got 100 thigh blows with a thick piece of wood. Beat you into submission and obedience. Has become community fixtures as with elective dynasties and merchandising of election votes.
Having still to this day not personally known anyone who died of the dreaded COVID, I did encounter one person for the first time who has been vaccinated. She was at the municipal office I went to and she announced to everyone within hearing distance how lucky she was to get Pfizer. She was not that elderly an employee there but I hope for her sake the vial was kept at the correct temperature from America to Manila to Cebu. Realistically though, the clearest illustration of the actual danger of COVID-19 is if we request Gwen to sit with her naked face next to Duque, the ringleader of scamdemic germaphobia maskophilia.
Pacquiao has said crazy things in either of his capacities as senator or celebrity. Boxers and football bangers routinely suffer bodily collisions that incrementally hurt their brains irreversibly. Damaged goods in other words and there is no need to repeat here the crazy statements blurted by Duterte that point to something wrong in his mental process. His minions habitually express alarm over things we know they themselves are the cause of. Nobody knows if Satan is already in possession of Duterte's soul or how many of Satan's demons are currently holding positions in our executive branch. If the national Church intends to regain its rightful power it has to consider excommunicating Duterte as step one.
American bishops conferenced this month to decide on the suitability of abortion and gay marriage enthusiast Biden for denial of communion, a sacred privilege taken for granted by most Catholics and trivialized even by topmost leaders of the global Church. These are probably the most conservative bishops worldwide but they kept their decision out of the public's knowledge. By itself this would only be symbolic but it would send signals to other players in civil society. America ceases to be strong if it has a woke government. Philippines ceases to be corrupt if its government is cut down to less than 25 percent. Church is not slave of the state, we don't want to be China or Russia.
Britain and Philippines are shown in the graphic to protocol COVID similarly but the distinction is that Britain has been hit ten times worse while Philippine enforcement has been stricter from day one to day today. Corny overreaction hypochondria is not the whole issue, what makes it worse is that non-government institutions choose apathy. The four basic protocols can be justified only in the beginning stage when you know nothing yet. Free flowing ventilation is demonstrably the most helpful while the other three are questionable.
The government supposedly has some bayanihan loot left to splurge before the deadline so it has been spending it on arbitrary Libre Sakay free rides on enclosed aircon China mini-buses with plastic barrier strips on the seats inside for face shield-wearing adult commuters able to board one. After a year plus half this is still how the government deals with a supposedly hypersuperinfectious airborne disease. Government prevents you from questioning its policy and forces you to believe the statistics it fabricates.
Theoretically speaking if an unelected official is in charge of something big like the pandemic, this official can do anything he wants. But all our officials act like practically none of them are bound by the social contract of the elected. Duterte is accountable to no one except maybe 17 senators who every incoming president ensures are bought into a comfortable administration coalition. If they are all effectively unaccountable then there is no point having elected officials, let's just have dictatorship instead. Conservative intellectual Jay Nordlinger says that every dictator thinks his job is to tell others how to live, what to do, who to be. To deny us freedom, democracy and human rights.
You will find here a photo of Martin Luther King on the march with very respectable-looking citizens. A dignified man of God he was. I find his message lucid and reasonable. I love my country, I do not want to be discriminated in my own country. Given how far we have deteriorated in the Marcos-Aquino generations, I do not have the faintest idea what can still be done to right our unrespectable and unlovable Republic of the Philippines. MLK trusted his country to do right, you however have no business trusting the government of yours. How do you know it is not lying to you about COVID? For one, it has never gained anything by telling the truth.
If you've wondered about the Korean pop stars inserted up there, it's to highlight how distantly we've strayed from our authentic selves. Why does everyone want to look like ABS-CBN's Tagalog transvestite Vice Ganda? Culturally the non-Tagalog nations have been stripped of safeguards even as the Church just watches government promoting LGBT, corruption and immorality. We've known in the past that the natural existence of homosexuality and addiction does not harm the family as long as sponsorhip for its proliferation is not aggressively pursued by the state. Yet its main publicity spectacle for some time had been a militaristic drug war fed by an appetite for brutalization. There aren't many problems in this world that government can solve by brute coercion and that is precisely why it has to be set with limitations.
In this country where election payouts, state-financed universal health care and "free" education are the power gimmicks of politicians from Marcos to Duterte, they imposed national socialism to a people who chose to live with their own low productivity. And a foolish conceptualization of Catholicism as merely being prayer equals material gifts showered to you. Nationalism destroys good countries and is only good for bad countries. One final question to the priests and bishops whom we have earlier asked to reconsider their non-committal stance on culture and politics. Tulfo warned us on PhilStar about this. What are they going to do, is it still nothing?
"The 13-year-old daughter of an Indonesian couple, who blew themselves up inside the Mount Carmel Cathedral in Jolo in 2019, was “rescued” after a firefight between government troops and Abu Sayyaf terrorists. The minor, who’s married to a full-fledged Abu Sayyaf member, has a brother who is also being groomed as a suicide bomber, according to intelligence reports. Her husband, who was being served an arrest warrant, escaped. Although she’s a minor, the 13-year-old girl should be treated as a prisoner of war, albeit humanely. She’s a potential suicide bomber, as she’s been brainwashed to kill in the name of her religion."
Irrational fear and the insanity of militarization
Top of the May 25 collage are graduating cadets of American military academies, one of them is distinctive for wearing a mask while the rest do not, including the one commander-in-chief Biden is intimately handing a diploma to. The top leaders of the European Union still mask even if vaccinated with real vaccines (not Sinovac). One important observation regarding these new members of the US armed forces is that they almost look like police personnel. So unlike the police here who dress up in military battle gear. Terrifying. But this is what the central authority intends. Especially now that they have tasted and enjoyed COVID totalitarian power for one year three months.
There are some silly Americans whose idea of progress is defunding the police and having nobody chase after criminals. Not as silly but so much more evilly nefarious is the opposite notion that police is meant to be your daddy. The blurring of the line making military and police distinct was started by Marcos who fused them to be his central private army. The result was and is qualitative decline from what had once been a top defense and enforcement capability in Asia. Marcos and successors corrupted and perverted all these.
Before anyone criticizes the smart conservative libertarian senator Rand Paul for his personal decision about the vaccine, let your friendly reminder be that he is also a smart doctor of medicine who professionally practiced the scientific treatment of sick human beings. The other picture is of progressive politician Swalwell who was cultivated by Chinese operators before he became California congressman. He was included in the batch of nominees along with Kamala and Joe for the Democrat presidential nomination. Imagine if the Communist Chinese had the same success with Swalwell as BongGo did for them with Duterte. America would have also become a province of China.
Cebu is as terrible a place as any other in the centrally locked-down Philippines, schools will continue to be closed by the dumbest education department in the world. Manila shuts down Cebu's airport anytime to show who's the master, who's the slave. Cebu's governor does not hold any real power required to serve her people, the imperial lockdowners will pick and impose their own whims in accordance to self-interest and the supremacy dictated by the constitution for Manila and Tagalog. Don't forget China's ownership of Duterte. The function of Duterte's Visayas minion is to ensure that the mandarin holding power in Manila easily bends the will of Cebuanos every which way of the mandarin's scamdemic.
Irrational fear of virus apocalypse becoming the government's chief weapon instead of enabling voluntary epidemiologic prophylaxis in all communities as Sweden has done, irrational fear only produces more self-damage. Irrational fear is what the Imperial Tagalog Manila regime administered nationwide from March 2020 to this day. But we don't have a monopoly of insane tyrants, the Philippines is not alone for many are in Africa, Middle East, outside North America, ex-Soviet, China axis. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty recently reported "Lukashenka Signs Law Allowing Belarusian Police To Use Firearms Against Demonstrators" and then a week later they hijacked a Ukraine-Lithuania flight to force its landing so they can arrest an opponent who was a passenger.
Tyranny had been growing even before the scamdemic. The lengths that national socialist regimes around the world go through to sustain tyrannical rule is simply astounding.
Elements of France's army have warned of the danger to France coming from Islamist militants, not systemic racism as claimed by Biden's admin but Islamist violence. France is a country where the practicing Christians are outnumbered by practicing Muslims (migrants), this is according to Shadi Hamid, a Muslim American intellectual featured on the Remnant podcast of Jonah Goldberg.
Syria-Iraq was a fruitful training ground for vast thousands of indoctrinated Islamic terrorists who are now elsewhere. Ignore it at your own risk. There was a gap of eight years between the two World Trade Center attacks by adherents of jihad terror. We are talking about a permanent problem that requires military and intelligence solutions. Killing jihadists before they kill you is necessity, killing drug suspects is theater. Long-term military mobilization for flu control is merely theater or playacting.
Ask first if terror is the product of criminal mindset or of ideological doctrine. The scripture of Marxist religion does not instruct beheading and genocide therefore any such acts in furtherance of Marxist expansion is a creative act of criminality rather than strict observance of ideology. They are not the same kind of enemy.

OCTA warns of possible COVID-19 ripple effect in Visayas, Mindanao -gmanetwork.com/news/story/789502
Who ordained OCTA (led by a math teacher) as THE expert in national health? How many Philippine teachers would object to patently erroneous propaganda lessons like Tagalogistic nationalism in our provinces? Why did Vietnam fail to impose restrictive distancing etc. before and yet be the second most successful country in Asia controlling the destructiveness of China's coronavirus? Why is the Philippine government deaf to questions and why does it insist on crazy non-solutions?
In DIPLOMATIC POUCH by Anke Reiffenstuel (Philippine Star) May 11, 2021, the ambassador of the most advanced country of Europe explains that in the limited lockdown they carefully resorted to, schools were last to close and then first to open. As seen here by the German ambassador's own eyes, not a single classroom has reopened since early March 2020. Our path should not be to ever be so resilient (fatalistically accepting and adapting) but to be resistant. Closing schools and enduring the growth of ignorance is resilience. Resilient is nothing to be proud of. You are still alive today and tomorrow because to the virus you are resistant. Resistant is also what you should be to the wrong government.
The extremist coronavirus
In competitive politics there only are the chameleon and the ideologue but no extremist. Biden, Trump and Duterte are chameleons who do not have their own intrinsic beliefs but are adaptable to whatever is expedient to their career advancement. Rand Paul, Paul Ryan and Tim Scott are among the conservative ideologues. Sanders and B Johnson are set in the ideologically socialist camps.
Laden was sincere in his emulation of everything Muhammad was all about in the sixth century, that alone tells you Laden was not extremist but conventional in being an ideologue. An example of a deviant or extremist is a Christian who develops out of the blue a fervent belief that killing, terrorizing and subjugating non-Christians is fulfillment of the word of Jesus Christ our true Lord and God, who never once told us to do those things. But there is no way you can still be considered Christian if you deviate from Jesus Christ.
Merkel and Johnson represent ruling political parties carrying the label conservative but in practice they do mostly socialist governance as much as the supposedly moderate Macron. Bolsonaro is quite like Trump was in sticking to conservative restraint while the Japanese prime minister is bound to conservative pacifism in contrast to low-energy Biden who is tethered to the aggressive prog-woke agenda. Regardless that in the Philippines vote-buying and socialistic entitlement doleouting are not intrinsic manifestations of ideology, does this mean that our elected public servants are blameless performers of what everybody pretends is a sacred duty? No you are just another crook or thief if that is how you define public service.
Racist terrorists and GAGO are what Biden and Duterte think of their countrymen. Biden only has interest in nurturing transgenders while Duterte only wants to please Xiping or whatever is the name of that commie Chinaman. One president is stridently supportive of abortion which is why the bishops might excommunicate him while the other does not even pretend to be Catholic so good luck with that. And they can't get enough of playacting with masks and shields on. Fabricating narrative of January 6 excursion in DC of distraught Trump fans as an insurrection riot of murderous racists surprising the police with deadly force. Untrue but unadmitted by the gaslighter brigade. Biden showed confusion about terrorists before, he opposed the kill order that Obama hesitantly approved in 2011 for Osama.
Like the younger Bush who also had been mostly good for his country, Trump should humbly turn invisible. No longer president, his egomania deserves to be ignored. On the bright side, unintentionally under Biden the presidency becomes less politically important, this is what the American founding fathers intended, for political supremacy to reside in the peoples' direct representatives, the legislators and state governors. This is what needs to happen in the Philippines, for central authority to stop becoming bigger and to become less instead. LEAVE US ALONE. Gwen Garcia told the czars of Chinacoronavirus that she the incumbent of Cebu does not recognize their emergency authority which lapsed more than eight months ago.

President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to immediately lift quarantine restrictions "once things begin to clear"
The goodness of America isn't found in government, but in its people and how they love and support their neighbors.
Inquirer reported on May 5 that only "Over 2 million COVID-19 vaccine doses administered in PH." Can't do better than only a million complete vaccinations per month for our huge population? Personally I am fearful of compulsory universal COVID vaccination insofar as individuals likely to reproduce human beings are concerned. Vaccinate the aged, priests, transgenders, prostitutes, etc., I see the good in that. But we are talking about vaccines partly derived from a virus that the Chinese government harbored in 2019. Never mind the present generation but we do not know for certain what it will do to the next ones. My attitude to unnecessary vaccinations is the same as with what has been frequently unnecessary masking and completely unnecessary face shielding. Could turn out to be self harm like lockdown.
A lot of the principalities now reopening for business did not even shut down their schools. Mild Philippines still is playacting as if it's been one of the hard hit countries. Acting worse than them is weird because anybody who is normal would think that what does not kill him makes him stronger. It is not unreasonable to ask if what they are doing is make us weaker so they can indefinitely extend their abuse of COVID power. Federico Pascual even hinted of schemes to prolong this until the May 2022 election.
Police top general Sinas was burned in the media after the Dacera case he had hyped in December turned out to be one maliciously distorted drug murder story written by Makati police. It was a successful diversionary headline for a few days until it was debunked for obvious falsehood, confirmed by the prosecutor to be a fabrication last April. What else could this government have concocted to fool us? COVID numbers maybe? Are you going to trust a government like this?

To spot abuse you gotta understand what is going on. The above example is not a racist attack abusing a "Filipino" child who for all you know is an American citizen involved in a youthful tussle with other Americans. It is more like our local headlines shouting that this earthquake or crash in that country killed hundreds but happily no Filipinos were hurt, that is crybaby racism on our part my friends. Child abuse is the church obediently adhering to the government ban on fifteen-year-olds from attending Sunday mass (although some parishes quietly defy the government's stupidity).
Child abuse is the permanent lockdown enforced by the national government for more than a year, something that has exceedingly harmed the over forty million under-20 who we all know from the beginning are not affected at all by the coronavirus of China. Many hundreds of billions have been wasted on salaries, equipment and broadband for almost zero learning by all students in this online travesty. Forcing masks on children is CHILD ABUSE. He becomes weaker mentally and immunologically because of the government's senseless interference with his exposure to nature.
One of the best references on how to abuse children is the Department of Health. In this "pandemic" martial law regime they use the Tagalog national language to impart useless advice. Cute though.
The chance the Tagalog health department will take seriously the task of informing the public correctly about health issues is the same as candidates for president being truthful with their campaign statements. You have to carefully recollect that Duterte in 2016 downplayed China's actions until that national telecast of the candidates when the question was asked.

Was everything a lie and could it be the only outcome he was after is communist China provincializing the Philippines? Anti-federalists Sotto and Drilon cited appeasement of the five percent Muslim minority's warlord factions as reason for opposing charter amendment. Constitution, Drugs, Corruption and Gambling Revenue-funded Universalized Health/Education were nothing but words of no value to Duterte (as in toilet paper and Federalization) once you realize that nothing meaningful has been done. The system was not reformed, it was made worse. Their most significant achievement is replacing Christian holidays with Chinese.
India in crisis, Philippines in zarzuela
It is easier to see the coronavirus moromoro performed in our country after you look closely at the numbers in India. These are not artificial numbers, fifty thousand died in the two weeks following April 27. This is a country that is the outsource manufacturer of European, American and Russian vaccines against chinacoronavirus, India has no reason to be dishonest about their death toll, nobody there gains from either high or low.
In all of fifteen months I still have known personally no one who has for a fact been infected, who has gotten sick, or who died from what is called COVID. And I can't forget Gwen Garcia officially accusing the doctors at a top hospital of causing the death of her two brothers, COVID was what the hospital alleged. COVID hardly scares the Gwen Garcia of 2021 portrayed in this blog. She knows something but is prevented from spilling the beans.
What would happen if America made it illegal to wear face masks starting next week? Might be that a lot of the 30% in America who object to getting Pfizer/Moderna/Janssen will panic buy into vaccination out of concern that being maskless somewhat raises their risk. India did not fabricate their recent surge but even if this indicates the susceptibility of their population to the ravages of chinacoronavirus, no one knows the likelihood of their catching up with the worst hit places in the Americas and Europe where the death rates stand ten times higher than India.
And vaccinations in the hard hit countries look like it's put chinavirus under control therefore India is not hopeless. Starting with the hypothesis that the Philippines was not susceptible to the original chinavirus and subsequently not susceptible as well to massive variant attack, we can assess at this point that even if the officially reported case counts and death counts are truthful, these are still of an acceptable level. The lockdowns and protocols of coercion never had an effect on those numbers if you consider the level of incompetence, negligence and power-tripping abuse. If the government did nothing and we did nothing, the result would be the same. So why were we made to shut down our lives for fifteen months?

"If the importance of aerosol transmission had been accepted early, we would have been told from the beginning that it was much safer outdoors, where these small particles disperse more easily, as long as you avoid close, prolonged contact with others," Zeynep Tufekci, writes in a guest essay. Opinion | Why Did It Take So Long to Accept the Facts About Covid? -May 8
The answer blowing in the wind my friend is social engineering. Fauci should be exiled to China, preferably the Wuhan virological lab that his agency had been sending research funds to. They took too long to recognize how much more important open air ventilation is compared to masks that are partly effective only for droplet egress, not for aerosol ingress. They put their efforts into forcibly engineering human behavior rather than serving knowledge for intelligent consumption by the public.
The most important function of the mask was to remind you that the government is in control of you and you better remember that. Seriously, lockdowns and masks did not prevent China's virus from spreading in the Americas, Europe and India. The biggest reasons are climate, density and susceptible population profiles where China dispersed its virus to. An infectious individual emits droplets. Most masks inhibit these from transiting aerially but eventually droplets and maybe some aerosol will escape from covered nose and mouth.
The mask of a nearby non-infected individual would need to be top-grade to keep out all incoming aerosol virus. It takes professional training to fit one on your face and it loses effectiveness after hours of using this uncomfortable covering. Which is why strong air ventilation is so much more helpful to you apart from the sort of spatial distancing natural where the Finns and Norwegians live. The fetish for masking is fading as shown in a subway station where the city put up a booth for passengers to get the vaccine, voluntarily.
The Freeman, May 17, OPINION: The royals of Sugbo
CEBUpedia on October 3, 2018 wrote an article on the royals of Sugbo. This is a reprint... “Glimpses in History of Early Cebu” published in 1980 written by Professor Lina Quimat, former president of the Cebu Historical Society... The ruler of the island was Hari Mangal and his wife, Rani/Hara Bauga. They had two sons, Lapu-Lapu and Malingin. The knights of Hari Mangal were Bali-alho, Sugpo-baha, and Bugto-pasan. An islet near Mat-an Island was named Olanggoh (now called Santa Rosa), ruled by Cusgan and a daughter with the name Bulacna (soon to be the love interest of Lapu-Lapu). Lapu-Lapu and Bulacna had three children, Cimangtas, Savilic, and Catahuman. The book says that Lapu-Lapu died at the age of 80 in the Island of Mat-an, a year before Miguel Lopez de Legazpi arrived."
So much of our published history in the Philippines is false, shameful as it is to admit that our biggest similarity to China is that we are a land of fakes and piracy. The only reason we even have a past is that the Spaniards came and took notes, neither destroying nor fabricating details.
The excerpt above from Atty. Oaminal's column in Freeman demonstrates fraud by a historian, very similar to Kalantiaw and 10 Borneo Datus of Jose Marco (Lapulapu, the Bornean Baloney, and the vacuum of history -CDN Digital November 18, 2019). Though Lina Quimat did not present incriminating forged documentary artifacts, we are aware that the only source we have pertaining to 1521 is Pigafetta. There's no other existing record of us prior to the military expedition of Legazpi 44 years later, and you can be 100% certain Pigafetta did not bring a tape recorder to interview Lapulapu about his genealogy and professional resume. But maybe China's special boy Duterte has supernatural insights about the Lapulapu nobody knows anything about beyond the little Pigafetta took note.
Cebuanos were fools to vote for Duterte and now for 2022 his Visayas minion again wants to fool us with his daughter by manipulating Gwen Garcia who already turned down the inutile but profitable senate post. It would be nice to know whether there is still one politician or two who cannot be bought.
Each modest success by Biden makes Trump fade away faster from the political stage. But Biden has to be less abnormal and more wary of social engineering which is a favorite of Nazis and Soviets. Abnormal is fetishistic addiction to lockdowns and Neanderthalization of the immunized who bid the mask good riddance, so it's good Biden has retreated. The first social engineering here was when Quezon initiated national Tagalogization but this was a dud until Marcos and Cory intensified it to a genocidal campaign. Reproductive dictation, socialistic welfarism, there are many others including the Metro Cebu order dangling commercial privileges to the few who get vaccinated. It is crazy.
Hardly anyone actually benefits and it's mostly the abusers who gain. Even if it is not just for show, the rationale is so low-IQ -- they have almost no vaccines. And the mayors, etc. are prioritized because they are frontliners in the glorious battle against COVID. That too is social engineering, redefine them as frontliners so they become your masters. Irrational fear is what they seek to maintain by means of hyped alarms. And if Sison is a terrorist who's been in the business of terrorizing the people for 50 years, what do you call a government that suddenly hands out a few COVID masks more than a year too late after arresting maskless citizens the whole time?
It was very disappointing for Pinoy supremacist social engineers that Miss Philippines was a distant placer in Miss Universe. It was diappointingly topped by five non-developed countries with serious chinavirus infestations compared to ours. Not that we should care about showbiz and pageants, it's just sometimes pathetic is amusing. But if sadness's your cup of tea, read about how badly the Philippine economy declined as of year four of Duterte, in 2019, the year before COVID. And the worst is yet to come as we enter year six of Duterte plus sinovirus.
Has the Duterte administration made us a stronger nation? THE CORNER ORACLE - Andrew J. Masigan (The Philippine Star) - April 28, 2021
April 27, 2021
More than a million
With all this talk of variants and variability of vaccine efficacy how come there has been no systematic re-evaluation of the multifangled testing products? Is it because these tests inflate positive cases to the epidemic proportion desired by czars of "health"? To put their scaremongering into context, consider that an 85 year-old subjected to infections has a 20 percent chance of dying, 80 percent he will survive the infections with no vaccination. Almost zero risk of death for you if you are still young and even less if female and non-mixed Oriental. But here they are even more shy about that kind of data, this one is the closest to relevance in all of the past fourteen months, 496 deaths reported for those above 60 years.
Around 60 percent of the total COVID-19 related deaths in Cebu City were seniors, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) confirmed from March 2020 to present. -philstar.com/the-freeman/cebu-news/bottom-article-list/2021/04/22/2092958/elderly-account-60-cebu-city-covid-19-deaths
Around 90% of those the American government classifies COVID deaths are 60 years and above in age. Below 50 years it doesn't even reach 5% of their 570,000 deaths. No matter how many US officials have that much perverted sociopolitical notions filling their heads, they can mostly be trusted to be truthful with statistics. None of us have seen anything but if compulsion brings it out and shows a huge proportion of Philippine "COVID dead" at 50 years and below, hold it, wait a minute. What a special country this is!
Upcasing. This is the terminology used by the Philhealth public insurer for non-COVID sicknesses and deaths fraudulently reported by agencies and hospitals as coronavirus so they get money. worldlifeexpectancy.com/selected-deaths-vs-covid-19-philippines indicates COVID has only a tiny percentage of deaths by disease, only equal to the most common cancer in the Philippines. April 26 they said 16,853 are the dead they medically attributed to COVID. How many of these were upcased?
Biden should burn his mask on TV, this was said by Rand Paul, a senator and doctor who is the biggest critic of Fauci. What he meant was that this symbolic act would reassure Americans that vaccination is going to be worth it because normal life returns to us sooner and government recedes again to the background instead of endlessly intruding. No more (unnecessary) masks and back to more freedom of living as the conservative-ruled regions are doing in defiance of a centrally-inclined federal government hesitant to reduce its COVID power of control. However, America's enemies are pleased to see it on an LGBT-woke trance, its descent to weakness a prerequisite for provincializing failed states like the Philippines.
US waiting for Philippines to seek help over Chinese vessels in West Philippine Sea —envoy gmanetwork.com/news/lite/story/784474
We do not know if they will really come because we have not asked for their obligatory help from the beginning of the problem in the Ramos years. Maybe it is a problem like the communists whom the past and present regimes never really seemed to want to wipe out for one reason or another, like our unwelcome friend COVID from China. There have always been some of them authorities to whom virus and communist are useful in one way or another.
Like the drug bogey these are things that do exist, it is just that in time they become so expedient and profitable that all one does is magnify and exploit. The Cebu report makes it reasonable to suspect deliberate tampering of the local infection and mortality statistics though the sample size is small compared to Europe and Americas data. Anti-COVID measures there have been to each his own affairs but were one to have done differently there wouldn't have been much difference for it would have still been the same results for them. The strictness that was misdirected and misapplied here in the form of unending Community Quarantines could have all been done differently but the actual result would have more or less been the same for us. Health-wise only, economy et al not so.
The effect has since the beginning been significantly less in the Philippines and this is a fact of nature, not a fact of government. It took fourteen months plus to hit one million infections and we don't know how many are duplicates, false positives and falsifications from the smorgasboard of excessively expensive tests. We don't see science, we don't see information, we see propaganda, OCTA. They are forcing us to believe that China (ineffective) and Russia (effective) vaccines are the salvation of our country but those two can't even produce enough for themselves even if they had a headstart by recklessly rushing development and manufacture. America has a new problem and it is that they have more vaccines and less people who want them.
Do you know the one thing before March 16, 2020 that would have minimized the present COVID-19 Pandemic Scamdemic Crisis instead of maximizing it? Just one rule, if it has been determined that you are infected, you are immediately permanently disqualified from all public employment or office and will automatically lose all benefits thereof. Everyone of them would have moved heaven and earth to keep out the Chinese virus.

Death of Ludabi
Old man Addy Sitoy left this world last week and to insult his memory it was announced that his life was defeated by the coronavirus of China. The truth is that we are all victims of the current Pinoy central government whom Addy served to the last of his breath with the supposition that his liaison would benefit the Cebuano. Sitoy had truly large shoes to fill in after the death of Bacalso in the dying years of the Marcos regime. I never thought the dean was the best man for the Cebuano language's most prestigious institution but I never saw any other one who was there for Ludabi and the (once but no longer) great Phil-Austronesian language it had been synonymous with. Not even his departed son (an equally good person) but if only there had been somebody else whose intellect and fire are in the league of Manny Faelnar or my hero Danny Martinez. Ludabi could have put to ignominous shame opportunistic poseurs Ako Bisaya, An Waray and Ako Bicol.
How would it have turned out if Bacalso set aside Pusyon Bisaya and used Ludabi to become the leader of the Cebuano nation of Visayas-Mindanao, challenging Marcos and his Imperial Manila? But unlike Sitoy he was not as physically durable otherwise we might have been spared Cory's continuation of Tagalogista fascist nationalism and Duterte's China-ism. The Philippines wouldn't have been damaged by corrupt socialism and the dumbest nationalism if only the regions were motivated to stand on their own. Instead of being teased now and then with fake decentralization and fake federalism.
VOA (free.facebook.com/voiceofamerica) showed pictures this week of Israeli men, women and children maskless on the streets and seafront, able to act like normal humans. Gwen of Cebu by my impression wants us to follow Texas and Israel, as a gesture she sent mask supplies to the military police so they would stop imprisoning violators, to dispense not coercive harassment but free masks. However Gwen is just a governor, the only real power granted by the constitution is to bribe voters, she isn't even allowed to recommend the next head policeman, no institution of the province has this role because the prerogative is Imperial Manila's alone.
"Outcry as Charlie Hebdo depicts Meghan Markle as George Floyd" was an Al Jazeera story about the French magazine's recent satire featuring the wife of the late Prince Philip kneeing their mulatta granddaughter-in-law. No extremely violent reaction to the cartoon there unlike the previous instance when Hebdo offended a certain religion in the same way Hebdo offends everyone. The queen and her husband had always been paragons of dignity, royal and personal. No leader in the world is more Christian than her, no man more steadfast than him.
There are no COVID experts here, says Cito Beltran (No compassion in compassionate use, PhilStar). OCTA and DOH are obviously among those he's referring to since even in America and Europe where they have the tools and talent, expertise is not yet an undeniable fact. Chinese coronavirus became such a gigantic problem here because of the "experts" who are empowered with greater infallibility than Francis. Sort of like Anthony Fauci’s Misadventures in Fortune Telling by Kyle Smith (nationalreview.com/2021/04/anthony-faucis-misadventures-in-fortune-telling). By the way, the choices for the cheapest tests are 2,000 and 4,000, please stay safe while exposed in that environment spitting a glass full of saliva.
Case bulletin #401 for COVID of the health department tells you in Tagalog that 16,048 died as of April 19. We have no idea how truthful this is because they hide how many of their alleged dead are past 85 years. Their previous bulletin listed 72,000 recoveries from infection compared to 9,000 in this one so they are not even making an effort to appear credible. Granting that infection detection in all who die sick is "standard practice" for mortality inclusion, it is reasonable to suspect deliberately fouled statistical reporting if they do not present clear information as to the local dead being very heavily in the over 65 years bracket. Open air flow is several times much better than lockdown+shielding+sanitizing yet despite this being old knowledge, it is only a matter of lip service to the coronavirus dictators. Airplanes pump air in and out strongly while flying but in buses and small vehicles it is the same air circulated slowly by the aircon.

The above can give you indigestion but if you care about what policy does to your health be concerned about the information you get. "More than 190K Filipinos fully vaccinated vs COVID-19 — DOH" per philstar.com last April 19 should give us an idea when inoculation can be satisfactorily completed. In their first 50 days they only managed to double jab that many.
Let's be generous and assume beginning next month they can reliably process full vaccination of ONE PERCENT of the population each month. And this is assuming they get two million doses of the right vaccines each month on the average for a year. Even if you double that rate, less than half of adults would have this "protection" in two years. This is suicide if the government continues everything it has already done in those next two years, becoming bigger in all things intrusive to our lives for no good purpose. Chew on that Robredo and Gatchalian.
Suicide is also what China has in mind for the Judeo-Christian and liberal democratic civilizations.

A California mother who confessed to killing her three children in a recent jailhouse television news interview described herself as a "social justice warrior" foxnews.com/us/california-mother-killing-children-jailhouse-confession
Killer mothers and the anti-Asian anti-hate brouhaha? What's got something to do with it is hyperactivism on the progressive social front. Biden and his fellow converts to woke political self-righteousness are familiar with this. The man who killed Asian sensual massage girls working in Georgia and the attacker in New York of an old woman from the Philippines were nutcases, one of them killed his mother. But woke mothers are also capable of killing their own small children, as many as three of them.
Laugh at Pacquiao all you want for challenging to a fistfight the Asian haters in the country most sensitive to all racial issues, be it existing or imaginary. Progressive ultralibs love to smear systemic racism on the American soul, but I simply cannot see a Gestapo in that country overseeing the sort of race and ethnic cleansing that the Communist Chinese are busy doing. What you see is China is behind all that. Employing artificial intelligence machinery and trained human trolls for trawling social media to determine the microinterventions that nudge user perception and influencer reaction. To stimulate anti-American response pre-conditioned by woke ideology.
In this story a COVID/fentanyl/meth-positive black man with diabetes, etc., dies after a policeman presses his knee on the man's neck as his police companions keep holding down against his back for too many minutes while waiting for paramedic backup. Only a court of law can judge the policeman responsible for this death but few bother to know the small detail that this was a frail policeman who had no easy way of restraining a giant of a man. Hostile onlookers were present after the man forcibly left the police car because he preferred to lie prone on the pavement. Where is the racism?
There also is the mainstream media's fake story of a DC policeman bludgeoned to death by rioters last January with a fire extinguisher. Was of natural cause after all but unacknowledged because those who hate America do not mind being manipulated by China. American local police are not saints but as locally trained and hired public servants they are held locally accountable and are nothing like the national military police we have. In a civilized country the police become responsible for the life of that someone they arrest. We are more like China.
April 14, 2021
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.

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.

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.

What has Lapulapu done for us Cebuanos? Nothing good unlike Magellan. The only thing that can make renaming the airport to Lapulapu (in place of the world-accepted Mactan) less wrong would be to rename the country discovered by Magellan to Magellan. Everything else is fascist nationalist propaganda as in the one below.
LODESTAR - Danton Remoto (The Philippine Star) - March 20, 2021
If Magellan did not drop anchor, we would have continued to flourish as prosperous Muslim kingdoms, united by our own language and proud of our own culture, happily trading with Asia and parts beyond.
From shit nationalism promoting fake Pinoy language and culture we move on to questionable science. The fourth portion hereunder is TLDR to most but to me this is a statement coming from one of the most credible persons in America.
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. Corrupt third world country mired in centralized fascist national socialism is all there is to it.
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. Offensive & insulting CTALK - Cito Beltran (The Philippine Star) - March 26, 2021. Try reading it if you haven't. "Protocols" are what the coronavirus dictators prefer to call them but in the experience of Mr. and Mrs. Beltran all these are offensive insults. 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. "Mainstream" America has been so anally fixated on being the world leader on transgender issues it might eventually lose the conservative religious values that made it the world's strongest power. Science and religion have less worth when taken for convenience and treated inconsistently.

Jumbled-up sentences show that AIs still don’t really understand language
Are you supposed to believe in any science just because somebody, a person with limited field of expertise or an organization with an agenda, sanctimoniously calls its favored thing "science"? Not all science is science for the simple reason that not all who use the word know what it is or is not. Take the "science" of Artificial Intelligence which powers Facebook and Google translations, everything becomes stinkier garbage as you pingpong a phrase from English to Cebuano back and forth. A lot of AI on the Internet only throttles it with junk computations and surveillance.

For most people, having just failed spectacularly at one’s job is not the best moment to ask for a pay raise and more responsibility. Not so for Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of the World Health Organization.
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.

Twitter now has Fleets, a rip-off of Instagram Stories, originally copied from Snapchat. Snapchat now has Spotlight, similar to Instagram Reels, brazenly stolen from TikTok. All the Social Media Giants Are Becoming the Same -March 27, 2021
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.

A Great Gatsby-themed prom in Idaho had the tagline: "A little party never killed nobody". Three ways US schools are responding to the pandemic
See the kill orders are real. And about those facial ID tracking cameras the central national military-police now deploy, these are China devices using China software transmitting electronic data to China computer server systems for processing. Very convenient for them if you have had biometrics registered by government agencies or if you enrolled owner facial recognition in your Android phone. Equivalent to being in prison with a videocam trained at you inside the cell.
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.

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.

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.

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

In the Sunday reading's Genesis passage, Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac.

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.

The spokesman's job must be so very extremely stressful he has to unwind as many times as he can at his favorite beach in distant Antique with his companions. 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.

There should never have been a disruption in the first place: children in school and their parents at work except in the few places that had a frighteningly deadly pandemic. Food Jobs Education. Those are the three things the nationalist state put a lockdown on instead of the virus from China. It is as if the state considers us its enemy and China its friend or master.

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.

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.

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.

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.
