Locking down the country into suffering and backwardness with Tagalog filipino National Language - a compendium of messages sent to DILA by E starting March 2020

Tell me what you think of the Pekingese virus suspicions. They and their sympathizers are turning the tables and pinning the blame on the US. It's significant that countries with close links to Beijing are the hardest hit.

Ex-MI6 boss says coronavirus likely engineered in Wuhan lab _ Fox News June 4, 2020

I couldn't find any open Internet shops ever since the extension of the enhanced community quarantine caused the closure of all shops other than those selling food and medicines (and banks) the other day.

What language does Waze use in Cebu? It turns out that the subdialect has become the default medium of Waze, so all rented vehicles in the Metro use that.

Now it's not just NTC but DOLE which releases infernal/diabolical messages, like this: Tulong mula sa DOLE para sa displaced workers (CAMP). Mag-email sa camp.doleble@gmail.com o tumawag sa hotline 1349.

Another infernal text from NTC. They should have versions in languages other than the subdialect; otherwise only subdialectals and Tagalogs will reply and they get a biased sample. Or perhaps it's deliberate?: PAKI FILL OUT po itong survey upang mas maintindihan ng gobyerno ang pangangailangan ng mga konsyumer at maliliit na negosyo ngayong panahon ng COVID-19.

Looks like the infernal NTC messages are getting more and more sinister. Now they're expecting their audience to have (to paraphrase Joey) the China-made virus. Meanwhile, the voice clip of the prez announcing the extended lockdown is prefaced w/ the words 'tanda ng pagmamalasakit ng pamahalaan.' The diabolical NTC post I'm referring to: Tandaan, tawagan ang lokal na BHERT kung may karamdaman. Pwede rin tawagan ang libreng nationwide hotline ng DOH: 02-894-COVID(26843) & 1555(All networks).

Am looking at a February 16 column of Joey de Leon in Star. Looks like he agrees with the Pekingese theory: 'Lilipas din sya/ Sapagkat ang virus/ Lang ay made in China!'


ChinaVIR-20 or Viru-20(Peking)? - we dissect the most gripping language politics pathologies of the year

BBC News - President Trump calls Covid-19 the "Chinese virus"


Three more weeks of lockdown! That's according to last night's Duterte speech. In effect, 3 more weeks of virtual imprisonment (you can't go out unless to buy food, buy medicine or go to the hospital), plus the inevitable infernal texts. I just hope this Pekingese-engineered pandemic ends soon. Note that a medical team sent by Beijing is now in the diabolical metropolis to 'help.'

wsj.com/articles/u-s-officials-say-huawei-can-covertly-access-telecom-networks-11581452256 February 2020

About the solution being mass testing (then quarantine), cheaper kits have been bought or made (some by UP). Testing will avert the vast economic costs because it'll allow pinpointng and isolation of infected ones. With so much money spent by government to deal with the disease it'll be worth it.

The just-departed Pekingese "assistance" and "observation" team which toured several COVID-19 facilities in the Philippines recommended the use of "alternative medicine" in dealing with the crisis. So we'll use Chinese medicine? Considering the use of Pekingese medicine, which is leading to the extinction of the Yangtze dolphin, the rhinoceros, sharks, pangolins (in Palawan), etc., I don't know what to say.

Strangely there was a made in China COVID medicine much acclaimed as a possible cure and given prominence by pro-Pekingese WHO but turned out to be a failure. The hype suddenly stopped. According to local radio, this happened after those Pekingese med (that's "medical" not "mad") experts had left.

Galvez says if extended, enhanced community quarantine may be for additional 15 days _ GMA News Online April 04, 2020

The lockdown has been extended for another 15 days in many provinces aside from the national capital region. Infuriating. Meanwhile they are proposing that POGO (offshore gaming which is dominated by Pekingese) resume since it will bring additional earnings. That gives an idea of their priorities.

Following a report on an illegal clinic frequented by Chinese POGO players selling fake Pekingese COVID medicines, it was admitted by the chair of the National Task Force on the West Philippine Sea (Sec. Lorenzana) that China has incorporated the Paracels and Spratlys (including disputed areas) as Pekingese provinces. Provocations in the midst of the China virus points to exploiting the pandemic and their questionable motives in manufacturing the virus. Did you hear of the AFP general who, while Philippine ships were being confronted by Pekingese in the West Philippine Sea, wrote to the Pekingese ambassador asking for unregistered China virus meds made in his country for his friends? Meanwhile Taiwan refused to deport the OFW who lambasted the Philippine prez, saying they have freedom of press in their country. Kudos to Taiwan, which by its action highlighted the undemocratic nature of both the Philippines and of Taiwan's totalitarian Pekingese rival.

gmanetwork.com/news/story/736595 Duterte admin sees POGO operations as 'very essential' —Bato

The decision of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Disease of Pekingese Origin - oops! - to resume Pekingese-patronized POGO was confirmed. According to an interview of PAGCOR Chairman Andrea Domingo, POGO will resume this May. Therefore those Pekingese (lucky ones!) clients, who never left, and who may have spread the China virus in the first place, will continue with their activities even before lotto resumes. Backlash by senators (Villanueva, Hontiveros, etc.) over POGO return and IATF approval, saying it favors a non-essential sector over essential ones, that it benefits the Pekingese and underscores their great influence. Senators warn it can spread China virus infection among PAGCOR Filipino workers and the public.

Senator Risa Hontiveros called on China to pay reparations to the Philippines and other countries for COVID-19. Does she know something that the administration doesn't?

This NTC text message in English is a pleasant shock. Either they heard us or COVID-19 is affecting their mental processes, though positively: DICT April 24, 2020 IATF-TWG-RPS Advisory: All Local Government Units, National Government Agencies and check point personnel should still honor all issued IATF-IDs

They're pushing the national ID which they say will help in identifying beneficiaries of the state's COVID program. The worrisome thing is that it contains biometrics and other personal information which will be available to those in power. Let's hope someone is not trying to imitate his idol Xi Jinping who has access to nearly everything, even the most intimate personal details of his involuntary constituents. Chilling if we're headed that way.

It was reported that Tagalog singer Imelda Papin's singing of "One Sea" (the China Sea which the Philippines "shares" with China and which China claims in its entirety) along with a Pekingese counterpart got 100,000 dislikes on Twitter vs 8,500 likes. "One Sea" has figured prominently in recent days in Pekingese and pro-Pekingese websites, a reiteration of their claim at a time when the world is reeling from the catastrophic Pekingese virus. Papin was interviewed (due to the bashing) re her controversial video where she sang "One Sea" in the subdialect while a Pekingese singer did the same in put*****a. She said she was chosen by the Chinese ambassador, wasn't paid, and was under the impression that she was only contributing to the fight against COVID.

They have put some Luzon provinces on GCC, but only the more distant ones - (definitely) not Metro Manila, Calabarzon or Central Luzon. They should buy cheaper, quicker, more available rapid test kits and test as widely as possible. They're turning the heat on the Spaniard in Dasmarinas Makati while ignoring Pekingese doing all sorts of things, not to mention the Pekingese government exploiting preoccupation with their virus to step up aggression in the 'One Sea.'

Why is the worst English in the Philippines spoken in Manila? Because they expect everyone to speak the diabolical subdialect Manila Tagalog. Southern Tagalogs from Batangas, Laguna, Marinduque, Cavite, etc. are our allies because they're also ridiculed by Manilans for their accent. I've seen FB debates between those from Laguna and Batangas who are proud of their distinct Tagalog variety (some want it taught in MTBMLE) and Bulakenyos who support the Manila position.

Human Rights Watch report on prisoners indicate numerous unreported prisoner positive cases as well as possible deaths since March, though these were uncertain because untested. Also hunger among various sectors including jeepney drivers due to lockdown (with reported social amelioration of only 20%) which caused suicides, among them a farmer in Pangasinan. Farmer killed himself because he was unable to feed his family since he couldn't sell his vegetables because of the lockdown, yet he did not receive anything from the social amelioration fund.


Remember the soldier shot dead by a policeman and the Quezon City vendor beaten up by "tanods" which went viral? If they're going all the way to Taiwan to prosecute, think of the areas under their noses. Let's just hope for the best. Finally good news though from abroad: reports on a human trial of a potential vaccine in the UK. Mass production planned in India in September. Therefore cheap but quality (note that this was not projected in that other unmentionable center of cheap production). Oxford Vaccine against the China Virus is now undergoing clinical trials in the UK.

bbc.com/news/live/world-52495737 US approves drug for coronavirus treatment

From the news: WHO refutes Trump charge that COVID-19 came from a laboratory in China. Nothing surprising from an international organization under the thumb of the Pekingese. They maintain that it came from animals, perpetuating an old story. The Trump charge is supported by reports from other sources.

How is "social distancing" pronounced? On the radio they keep saying "social disTANcing" - the Tagalog pronunciation? Most irritating. Add to this the NTC spam which is back in the diabolical subdialect. Another factor that needlessly raises the blood pressure in this crisis situation. Smart-PLDT infernal garbage. In fairness to Globe, they spewed subdialectal NTC trash only once - and prefaced it with English. Note the English introduction of Globe before the StaySafe blast, in contrast to the other network which is all subdialectal spam: This is a public advisory brought to you by the Natonal Telecommunications Commission, Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF-EID) and Globe: Ang StaySafe.ph ang opisyal na social distancing health condition reporting at contact tracing system na tutulong sa ating gobyerno laban sa COVID-19. Mag-register na sa StaySafe.ph.

From the news, an American senator has accused TikTok of being a vehicle for Pekingese spying. Which echoes what has been said here before. With Philippine politicians and their families inundating TikTok, they'd have a field day. Except that the Pekingese already have the Philippines in their pocket. Though having them under your thumb is something else. You can plant cookies, and all sorts of advanced 5G (which the Pekingese are expert in) and AI software in their devices, and they can blissfully monitor their satellites/lackeys in their "One Sea" from their headquarters in Beijing.

Josh Hawley Criticizes Apple and TikTok For Data-Security Policies toward China _ National Review November 5, 2019 Sen. Hawley Calls Apple, TikTok Two Sides of the Same Coin in Tech Groveling to China

News report: P32 million shabu seized from courier in Metro Manila. Announcer asks: "Where does all this shabu come from?" Answer: From the same source of COVID-19.

Isn't Hanlin a Pekingese company? Three employees based at NAIA were reported to have died of the China virus, and at least eight others, including a foreign (Pekingese?) flight instructor. Outrageous! They're spreading their virus all around right under our noses. If all of those were expelled or not allowed in, we would not be having this hell of a problem.

Pekingese-related news: China-made medicines for the China virus intercepted at Customs, mislabeled plastic resins for handicrafts. Also members of Congress oppose resumption of POGO to raise funds to fight the China virus, saying that all that is needed to raise funds is for POGO operators to pay back taxes which they have not been doing, and which resumption of POGO will not assure. POGO resumption will only expose Filipino PAGCOR employees to infection by the China virus.

POGOs, service providers should’ve paid taxes before reopening –BIR

Radio news report (translated from the imperial/infernal subdialect): 63 Pekingese (the Philippines is crawling with Pekingese, including many POGO operators) and 17 Filipino illegal POGO operators arrested in a subdivision in Metro Manila (Makati). While the rest of the country struggles with a China virus and with threats to press freedom, the Pekingese and their Filipino lackeys are gambling, and spreading the China virus!

A bill has been filed in Congress declaring the Philippines a no-POGO zone, explaining that POGO is making a mockery of immigration, tax and labor laws, and encouraging corruption (not to mention spreading disease in particular the China virus aka COVID-19).

Smuggled Pekingese-made anti-COVID-19 medicine intended for "improvised Chinese clinics." (Do they exist?) Are there that many Pekingese vendors (in Divisoria, etc.), restaurant workers (they serve Beijing siopao in some Chinatown restaurants), laborers, POGO players, Pekingese company employees, etc., in the country? But a Pekingese clinic was indeed featured in the news.

It was reported in the news that mortality from COVID-19 aka China virus is significantly higher in black people than the rest of the population. That means that countries in Africa who are heavily penetrated by Pekingese investments, "technical people" and labor in a new colonization are also most vulnerable to the virus brought by the Pekingese. The findings on black people were based on a study in the UK.

ABS-CBN ceased broadcasting last night, May 4. Despite the subdialectal nature of their telecasts, the closure by equally subdialectal NTC, in the context of the health crisis, taken against the context of the resumption of POGO (and its health implications and clear favoring of Pekingese), the economic and job loss effects, underscore the sympathies of certain people up there.

Cement company? What do they need it for? To reinforce their military outposts and reef replacements to replace those they destroyed in the West Philippine Sea? The same reason they're dredging up Bataan and Palawan? Nothing new.

Regarding the view on being a China province, did you know about the new (three years ago?) Chinatown arch donated by the Pekingese government which replaced the old one? This offended the Chinoys because it says (in Chinese characters) "town of China." To make things worse, the McDonald's next to it has, beside their English "McDonald's" sign, the name of the chain in simplified Chinese characters used by Pekingese, NOT the traditional characters favored by Chinoys and used in their newspapers.

Subdialectal weather reports from NDRRMC, again courtesy of Smart, all over the country. It joins the NTC in its infernalization derangement. In contrast to Globe, whose subdialect texts are at least prefaced in English: NDRRMC 12:30AM 15May2020 Signal # 2 sa Aurora at Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Bulacan, Cavite, Metro Manila, Batangas, Laguna, Rizal at Romblon. That's an infernal calamity bigger than the typhoon they are reporting, perpetrated by Infernal Manila, and disturbing our lives along with the China virus introduced and maintained by Pekingese.

According to a radio news alert, 180,000.00 worth of methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu) was seized in a Manila apartment. This comes days after arrest of people with millions worth of the same drug. 100.4 million pesos worth of shabu seized in Caloocan in a buy-bust operation. And a report that since the enforcement of enhanced community quarantine aka lockdown, 80% of arrests involve it. If you couple that with the fact that the country that is the source of the virus that caused the lockdown is also the source of the drugs, draw your conclusions. And the fact that the same country also confronted Philippine ships in waters disputed by that same country. Clearly even while the China virus rampages in the country, drugs from the land controlled by Pekingese does the same. And needless to say, its troops use the health emergency created by the country to reinforce its control over the islands, reef and waters it occupies. Infuriating and most nauseating.

COVID, shabu and Spratlys, what do these have in common? Warfare/Subversion on three different levels as the lockdown continues past May 16?

Three Pekingese nationals arrested in Caloocan for violation of the liquor ban. Only one of them had a quarantine pass. Violation of the laws of a friendly government in times of crisis. But come to think of it, in view of the much graver violations they have been committing, this is a minor thing. As minor as their compatriots defecating at the SM Mall of Asia fountain and in Boracay beaches!

bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-52656656 US accuses China of hacking coronavirus research

It was reported that the US has charged that China is hacking US research websites, amidst reports on progress towards a vaccine. What? Chinese medicine is unable to produce this when 1) it was Pekingese who produced the virus; 2) when a China med team visited the Philippines they recommended the use of alternative/Chinese medicine! In any case, the Pekingese are concerned that their enemies are succeeding against their virus, so they're responding. In defense of their baby, a mutant SARS coronavirus created in Wuhan?

There are persistent reports of fake COVID-19 medicines, with names indicating origin in China, seized, with corresponding arrests, and FDA warnings. But should we be surprised about these things originating in the land of fakes?

gmanetwork.com/news/story/740448 Customs seizes 180 kilos of Chinese medicines with no FDA clearance worth P700k

Apart from fake or unauthorized medicines that were made in China, other fakes discovered included fake COVID-19 test kits, though those kits were already publicized earlier. Breaking news include WHO warnings that spraying disinfectant on roads is not only ineffective against the virus, but bad for health. This practice has become common in the Philippines and was copied from China.

It was reported in Radyo Pilipinas, quoting an infectious disease specialist, that the Philippines has the lowest recovery rate and highest fatality rate in Southeast Asia. Not encouraging at all. Nor is the reported arrival of a batch of test kits from China. As for a Facebook geotag that the Philippines is a province of China, the actions mentioned in past entries in this blog speak for themselves.

Warehouse of illegal China-made China virus/COVID-19 medicines searched by police in Bacoor, Cavite; 2 China nationals arrested. It was reported that the medicines are sold not just to Pekingese, but to Filipinos as well.

In an interview, a doctor who is also a hospital administrator, reviewing test kits, said that China-made China virus test kits test kits are cheaper, but far inferior to test kits made in the US, Europe or Korea. According to him, the same can be said of China-made hospital equipment.

video.foxnews.com/v/6152168914001 foxnews.com/tech/us-accuses-huawei-of-spying-on-mobile-phone-users

The US has required foreign firms exploiting US technology to make semiconductors for China's Huawei to get licenses, a requirement previously imposed on US firms. The US considers Huawei, shown to spy on users, a security risk. Earlier, Philippine groups have protested Huawei's participation in an upgrade to the Philippine ITC system, calling it a security risk that gives China access to the most sensitive Philippine security information.

It has also been said that telecoms firms with ties to China are also engaged in spying on foreign users of their equipment, so Huawei is not allowed. Other reports, unconfirmed, put the Pekingese threat many steps further, saying that the China virus aka COVID-19, has been manipulated by nanotechnology, not just to cause disease but to spy. That is not necessarily farfetched but assumes a very high level of Pekingese technology.

News Reports - 268 NOGO (non-authorized gaming operators) - all Pekingese nationals - arrested in Paranaque. Engaged in illegal gambling - and incidentally (???) - in the spread of the China virus.
Two Pekingese nationals arrested in Pasay for being pushers of shabu. The two are also POGO operators. Other China nationals are also being investigated. Illegal gambling, possibly spreading the China virus... Didn't they introduce the pandemic into the Philippines (and cause shabu addiction to explode here) in the first place?
Three Pekingese nationals arrested in Paranaque and caught with P100,000 worth of shabu.
P200,000.00 worth of shabu seized in buy-bust operation in Munoz, Nueva Ecija. Suspect arrested is a resident of Cabanatuan. Investigation still ongoing, no proof yet of Pekingese involvement...
Drug dealer arrested in buy/bust operation in Muntinlupa, with over a hundred thousand pesos of suspected shabu. It has previously been reported that since the lockdown, most arrests have been over drugs. Two Pekingese blights (the China virus and methamphetamine hydrochloride smuggled from China) manifesting themselves?


Making jokes or spreading fake news, about the China virus aka COVID-19, are now illegal in Valenzuela (Metro Manila). These offenses, whether orally or in social media, are punishable by a fine of P5,000.00, six months imprisonment or community service. Correction: The China virus/COVID-19 joke ban is punishable by imprisonment of one year, according to an interview with Mayor Gatchalian. I wonder, though, if saying the truth about it is punishable, such as saying that it is indeed from China.

gmanetwork.com/news/story/738919 Cops raid underground hospital for Chinese COVID-19 patients in Pampanga

An illegal Pekingese COVID-19 clinic has been discovered at Fontana Leisure Park in Clark Field, Pampanga. The government is questioning Chinese nationals who patronized the China virus clinic. The underground Pekingese operation has been put under lockdown. It was found to be littered with discarded syringes and medical waste. An investigation is under way.

An area of Paranaque, the area around Baclaran, has been locked down because of a high number of COVID-19 cases. The area "coincides" with the residence of many Pekingese nationals, many of them POGO players. Should we then hesitate to call COVID-19 the China virus, the way the pandemic which caused millions of deaths after World War I was called the Spanish flu?


The Department of Trade and Industry said that the Philippines will be competing with other Asian countries to host US and Japanese manufacturers which have left Wuhan and China in the wake of the China virus outbreak. It said LGU policies and power rates will determine if most will move to the Philippines. Meanwhile a total of P5 million worth of shabu was seized and five people arrested in separate buy-bust operations in Bohol. No evidence yet of Pekingese involvement. However, the extremely high incidence of drug-related arrests should be noted - as well as the source of the shabu.

News Report: The Bureau of Immigration has declared Spaniard Javier Salvador Parra, who was almost arrested by Makati police for violation of ECQ policies, subject to deportation. Question: Is he being picked on because he is not from a favored country, unlike so many Pekingese nationals accused of much more serious crimes like murder and drug trafficking?

This isn't new but it gives context to later actions by the US and other countries (including the Philippines, where statements by Senator Risa Hontiveros have been cited here). It was reported that the US state of Missouri through Attorney General Eric Schmitt, sued China for lying to the world about the danger and contagious nature of COVID-19 and did little to stop the spread of the disease, so that Missouri lost millions of dollars in damage, and seeks cash compensation. The Missouri lawsuit mentioned the China authorities' early deception on the disease by silencing whistleblowers, and pointed out that China exacerbated the problem by hoarding face masks and personal protective equipment.

The government should immediately deport and blacklist Chinese nationals involved in underground clinics in the country, Senator Risa Hontiveros said on Thursday. news.mb.com.ph/2020/05/28/hontiveros-urges-deportation-for-chinese-nationals-running-underground-medical-clinics
gmanetwork.com/news/story/740133 Hontiveros wants deportation for Chinese nationals involved in underground hospitals

News Report: Illegal Pekingese clinic for China virus in Makati. A Pekingese doctor was arrested after police raided an Illegal COVID-19 clinic in San Antonio, Makati along with his nurses. Used syringes and unregistered medicines with Chinese characters were found in the clinic. Question: Why are so many China virus clinics found in the country?
Two of them, one of these in Clark, have been mentioned in this blog. Is it an indication of the number of Pekingese residents, or the number of Pekingese carrying the China virus? Either way, the picture is chilling. Faced with a pandemic originating in that country, we face an additional complication as the Philippines is crawling with multitudes of Pekingese spreading the disease. Additionally, the Pekingese China virus clinic had been operating illegally for three months before the raid. Among the patients found, one was even in bed with a dextrose bottle.
Radio announcer's comment in the infernal subdialect: Pekingese think they are above Philippine law. Was the arrested Pekingese doctor even authorized to practice in the Philippines?
Police have raided an illegal Pekingese clinic in Anunas, Angeles City. Two Pekingese, a doctor and a pharmacist, were arrested. Meanwhile, Senator Risa Hontiveros has denounced the double standard on Pekingese lawbreakers, who are favored over Filipinos and foreigners from other countries.

The WHO has expressed concern over the massive increase in COVID-19 cases in Africa. They have climbed to 100,000 in 60 days, doubling in 10 countries and tripling in 5 countries over a two week period. Most of these countries are allies or neocolonies of China (which have surrendered portions of their territory as bases in exchange for debt) and are dictated on by China, the likely source of infection.

Steep fall in support for China in wake of pandemic. A survey by MacLaughlin & Associates in countries including the UK, Germany and India has shown that the behavior of China's leadership has caused various countries to support economic sanctions, countering the Pekingese drive for global dominance.

m.inquirer.net/newsinfo/1283385 Trump to pull out funding from WHO; hits China over virus, Hong Kong

Last week, China enacted national security legislation, forbidding subversive and secessionist activity. It was condemned by pro-democracy activists, as well as by Chris Patten, the last British governor of Hongkong, as a violation of the 1997 Joint Declaration, which guaranteed autonomy. Prominent Filipinos have expressed fears that it will bring a massive influx of OFWs back to the Philippines. More troubles in times of crisis by the Pekingese.

Does a Nostradamus prediction implicate the Pekingese? The onslaught of the China virus aka COVID-19 has brought to light, in social media, a supposed Nostradamus prediction pointing to China as the source. Here it is; it is for you to decide: "There will be twin year (2020) from which will arise a queen (corona) who will come from the east (China) and who will spread a plague (virus) in the darkness of night, on a country with seven hills (Italy) and will transform the twilight of men into dust (death), to destroy and ruin the world. It will be the end of the world economy as you know it."
Hoax or not (Reuters and various authorities claim that it is), the 'prediction' is coming true in so many ways. The widespread death and economic devastation on a global scale are certainly taking place due to the pandemic, and so is the ruin, on so many levels, that China is visiting upon the world. In the Philippines alone, the China virus, the ever-present threat of shabu (contemporaneous with the pandemic), and escalating military threats (reinforcement of constructions of occupied islands and military provocations, again at a time of pandemic), are a microcosm of the ruin Pekingese are bringing on the world.


An article of Gatestone Institute narrates how China blackmails other countries during this time of pandemic. Focusing on Europe, it gives examples for different countries. In Italy, edited videos show Italians at rallies thanking China when no demos took place. France was outraged when China's embassy accused careworkers of abandoning their posts, while Germany complained that Pekingese diplomats pressured officials to praise China's handling of the pandemic. China's ambassadors in Western capitals, Gatestone says, resort to blackmail, threatening to withhold key medical supplies if governments do not follow Beijing.
In the Philippines, of course, Pekingese behavior is infinitely more arrogant, reprehensible and loathsome, dwarfing by far their behavior in Europe. They treat the Philippines as a colony, behavior encouraged by the slavish attitude of Philippine officials towards them. Yes, loathsome, with Pekingese doing at the SM Mall of Asia fountain and Boracay beaches something done inside restrooms.

newsinfo.inquirer.net/1279216/over-30000-ncr-folk-enlist-in-balik-probinsya-program Over 30,000 NCR folk enlist in Balik Probinsya program

The China virus pandemic is a crisis with no parallels in Philippine history. Government responses to it should therefore elicit sympathy and tolerance. One program to respond to it, however, is so ill-advised that it can only be condemned, as its results show. The Balik-Probinsya program caused non-essential movement between different parts of the country, and has resulted in the transmission of COVID-19 from Metro Manila to Leyte.
An interview with the mayor of Tanauan, Leyte revealed that several participants were moved from the Metro without COVID screening. This caused the first case of the virus in Tanauan. Earlier reports revealed that two other people in the same bus convoy were also positive, bringing the disease to another part of Leyte (Baybay?), though it's not clear if they were with the Balik-Probinsya program.

Trump announces US terminating relationship with WHO _ Fox News May 29, 2020
Gen. Jack Keane: China weaponized coronavirus to destroy Western democracies' economies _ Fox News

'China virus' name came from China? Surprisingly, and giving credibility to the terminology used by dila.ph, Gatestone Institute says that retired Beijing University of Science and Technology Chen Zhaozhi, posted online that "Wuhan pneumonia is not a Chinese virus but Chinese Communist Party virus." He was arrested in April. At about the same time, a Chinese human rights lawyer who ended his four-year sentence, was placed under 'quarantine,' meaning under arrest (ah, Orwellian 1984 doublespeak). By the way, 'COVID-19' is an invention of the Pekingese-controlled WHO.
The same Gatestone article cites instances of Pekingese influence in the West, such as the Bloomberg News censoring articles that expose Xi's personal wealth, and University of Queensland in Australia taking steps against a student known for anti-Beijing views. In another article, Gatestone notes how WHO is serving Pekingese interests, and moves to create a new global health body that is not a China puppet.
China virus is from China. In its June 1, 2020 article by Gordon G. Chang, China: What We Must Do, What We Must Not Do, Gatestone Institute has declared, "China has attacked America with the coronavirus. At this moment, more than 100,000 Americans have been killed. We must brace ourselves for the deaths to come."

92 Pekingese arrested at Tonichi Apartelle in Bacoor, Cavite for violation of quarantine protocols. Many were without face masks and some were half-naked from the waist up. Computer terminals could be found. Most were involved in online gaming (illegal POGO) but none had work permits. The place seems to be a haven of illegal gambling and of illegal aliens in general

The first day of virtual enrollment began June 1, 2020, in response to the China virus. Teachers contact enrollees/parents by text and ask them to answer the DepEd Facebook page. In some areas, questionnaires are dropped in schools. Teachers complained of spending much on internet service and on texts, though the DepEd provided a subsidy for load.

The President said that classes won't resume till a vaccine is ready. The DepEd has readied virtual learning packages, though it has said 25% of students have no gadgets, internet service is bad, and many remote areas have no Net service. With so many students lacking Net access, alternatives like printed modules, use of radio and television, and home study, with parents taking active participation, have been brought up. Calls have been made to subsidize purchase of gadgets, though Net access is bad, among the worst in Asia, and inaccessible in so many areas.

Organizations representing private schools say they are left out of the picture in government planning for the China virus "new normal." They say that they are badly affected and yet are ignored, when they need subsidies. Students from middle class families can study there, as public schools are exceeding capacity. Some officials agree, saying smaller private schools without other income sources are in danger of closing, leaving a huge gap in the educational system.

Student caught in Navotas pushing shabu, arrested. Announcer reiterates that 80% of cases in this time of pandemic are drug-related. Two Pekingese-related forms of warfare?

News Report: Underground Pekingese China virus clinic found in Multinational Village, Paranaque. Masks, dextrose bottles, medical equipment and illegal China virus medicines found, along with condoms and sexually transmitted disease (STD) medicines. Four Pekingese were arrested in the raid. Comment of announcer: What, are they spreading STD, too, along with COVID-19?
(June 6, 2020 update) Illegal Pekingese clinic in Paranaque raided yesterday. Two hundred boxes of unregistered medicines with Chinese characters were found. The medicines were against China virus/COVID-19 and STD (sexually transmitted diseases). The Illegal Pekingese clinics cater to mainly to POGO workers in the vicinity. Comment: If China virus and STD are prevalent among Pekingese, the authorities should be alarmed and take action.
A total of six illegal Pekingese China virus/COVID-19 clinics have been discovered and closed. They were located in several cities including Paranaque, Las Pinas and Angeles. They cater mainly to Pekingese. One of those in Paranaque mentioned previously, served as a sex den. It was therefore also a factor in STD, explaining the STD medicines accompanying China virus medicines in the clincs.

gmanetwork.com/news/story/737460 Dutch watchdog to investigate TikTok's use of children's data

Could TikTok Be Spying on You?
A Popular Mechanics article dated March 7, 2020 by Kristina Libby carries this title and says, among others, "TikTok has your children's home addresses...Apps like the wildly popular TikTok are particularly vulnerable. Owned by a Chinese company, TikTok uses an algorithm that sways public opinion - a form of comm control that has proven societal impact. And China's 2017 national intelligence law contains language that compels companies to comply with intelligence gathering operations if required...Given China's history of data interference and its faulty human rights record, Americans should be concerned about data weaponization...You might remember that in February, TikTok was fined for its data privacy usage."

Anti-terror bill passage shows administration’s ‘misplaced priorities’ – Hontiveros _ INQUIRER.net June 03, 2020

Two significant developments on the government front this week, one positive, the other negative. First the positive one, the assurance from the President that the VFA will not be junked. It's an assurance that the country will not fall completely into the (crushing, fatal) embrace of China. The other is the assurance that the Anti-Terror Bill will become law as Senate President Sotto assures its passage. Opponents in Congress say economic measures should take priority and this belies the assurance that martial law will not be declared.

Education News: The University of the Philippines was included among the top 65 universities in Asia. The top 10 included universities from the most powerful and technologically advanced countries in the region: China, Japan, South Korea. So what has not been given attention is that three universities in the top 10 are in an area where beginning schooling is in a non-dominant language: Hong Kong. HK University of Science and Technology, #5, Chinese University of HK, #8, Hong Kong University, #9.
Despite being a Special Administrative Region of China with autonomy until 2047, (though Beijing is now illegally overturning this autonomy), the main language in primary school in Hong Kong is still Cantonese. Championing the non-dominant languages of the Philippines is the main advocacy of DILA.

gmanetwork.com/news/story/741267 P5-B worth of suspected shabu seized in Bulacan raid, 3 arrested

News Report: 756 kilos of shabu with a street value of billions of pesos seized in a buy-bust operation in Marilao, Bulacan of the PNP Drug Enforcement Group. Question: Who has the resources to produce this amount of shabu in this time of health emergency? The minions of those who produced this health emergency in the first place?
Our latest information from the police indicated that they raided a house and a warehouse in Marilao where one Pekingese and two Filipinas were arrested.

News Report: Attempt to smuggle shabu inside NBP failed. Two suspects tried to smuggle shabu with an estimated street value of P2 million by throwing a small sack of rice containing shabu. No proof yet of Pekingese involvement. But note that prisons, including the New Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa, have a number of Pekingese guests inside.

They have also been caught, and photographed doing the same in other places, like Intramuros.

Reaction to government's Balik Probinsya program in the media: The amount of money spent on this should have been spent on fighting COVID-19, or solving the massive transport crisis following the return to work. All it did was bring the Chine virus to previously COVID-free Leyte. Now they're doing the same to Bicol. It should be renamed Pasyal Probinsya, since the grantees will return to Manila as soon as they have the opportunity.
News Report: Lanao del Sur governor asked that the Balik Probinsya Program be suspended, since it has led to an increase in the number of COVID-19/China virus cases. The number of cases in Lanao del Sur has risen to 19. Ormoc mayor Richard Gomez has expressed apprehension about the program for the same reasons. Other parts of Leyte, previously negative, are now positive after the arrival of Balik Probinsya participants.

Significantly, Representative Ruffy Biazon, one of the bill's principal proponents, withdrew his support at the last moment.

nationalreview.com/photos/tiananmen-square-protests-beijing-china 1989:Tiananmen

Despite a prohibition on public gatherings, thousands of protesters took to the streets to commemorate the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre. Police tried to make arrests, but the sheer number deterred them. This year's demos, on the 31st anniversary, took on added meaning as Beijing's security measures make a mockery of Hong Kong autonomy.

News Report: Police arrested three people in an exclusive village in General Trias, Cavite. Two-story house yields billions worth of shabu; police say they are investigating connection with a syndicate and the operation in Marilao, Bulacan which also yielded billions worth of shabu. Comment: A Pekingese headed the drug venture in Bulacan; could the entire multibillion-peso syndicate, be directed by Pekingese, here or abroad?
(June 12, 2020 update) Shabu discovered in General Trias was worth P2.6 billion. Person arrested (apart from security guards) said he was only a caretaker.

News Report: P1.4 million worth of shabu seized in buy-bust operation in Malabon. Four people arrested. Shabu was in boxes with Chinese characters. Comment: There are three possibilities.
1) The real perpetrators used boxes with such characters to put the blame on Pekingese
2) The Pekingese, or their Filipino lackeys (those arrested) were stupid, or careless enough, to use such boxes
3) The Filipinos and their Pekingese masters didn't care, since everyone knows that the Pekingese are behind such operations anyway, so it's useless to hide.
It's up to the reader to choose the most plausible reason.

Comment of a caller in a radio program: Here in our subdivision (Bulacan), there are so many people who seem high on drugs. There should be mandatory drug testing of suspicious people in checkpoints.
Comment: Does this have anything to do with the fact that the billion-peso drug Pekingese-run warehouse discovered is in Marilao, Bulacan? It certainly tallies with the statistic that in this time of pandemic, 80% of arrests are drug-related. It's significant that the caller asked for drug testing but not COVID testing. Two Pekingese strategies for domination coming together?

This raises concerns that those being sent home to the provinces were carriers of the virus. Rise in COVID-19 cases in regions linked to returnees June 17, 2020 newsinfo.inquirer.net

On the Balik-Probinsya program: A radio station featured a 'success story' of Balik-Probinsya, in San Jose, Camarines Sur. Significantly, a key requirement of the program in the municipality for those availing of it is a medical certificate that they are free of the China virus. But an interview with a family revealed one thing: they left because of the virus, and may consider return to Manila if a vaccine is found. Pasyal Probinsya indeed!

Commentary on the news: The filing of a bill to tax online businesses has led to charges that this is most inappropriate at a time when the health emergency has closed down businesses and brought joblessness and loss of income. The opinion of many is that what should be taxed is POGO, or rather billions in back taxes collected from it. POGO operators, mainly Pekingese remain in the country, unlike many foreigners who have left.

Citizens standing up to Pekingese. One instance held up as a model to citizens fed up with Pekingese domination of the country is the public action, through demonstrations by the people of Looc, Batangas, against the dredging of their silt and sand by Pekingese. The Pekingese dredgers retreated and left Batangas (though they have transferred their destruction to other provinces). If some people in power act slavishly to Pekingese, we citizens can unite and show our opposition. And succeed.

Comment: This decision, the ABS-CBN closure, and the Anti-Terror Bill about to become law should send chills down the spines of critics. Even as the China virus and shabu stalk the islands, is this another totalitarian influence from the land of Xi? Will Pekingese influence, in thought and deed, never cease?

Jeepney drivers want dignity back, ask they be allowed to work
Workers allot 4 hours for commute under the new normal

With the current transport shortage resulting from non-operation of most bus companies and jeepneys, many are turning to walking and bicycles. It turns out (on reliable information) that the biggest supplier of e-bikes is a Pekingese, acting through a Filipino dummy. (They're into everything!)

News Report: Jeepney drivers begging at Rizal Avenue. Jeepney drivers, who have been out of work for three months, have been found in portions of Avenida asking for help from passersby. They have been left out of the central government's social amelioration and received only help from the city government. To make things worse, they have no assurance if/when they can ply their routes despite the classification of the NCR to GCQ. Meanwhile, other sectors are also experiencing problems. Hotel workers, in a radio interview, have been thrown out of work or are in an uncertain state. Most have been converted to quarantine centers, and others are served by skeleton staff, so only about 1% are working. Many have turned to online selling to survive, but are threatened by planned taxes.

gmanetwork.com/news/lite/story/743196 Possible closure of private schools to affect over 400k employees -COCOPEA
- While Luzon was under enhanced community quarantine, private schools had warned that deferring the school opening to August would mean revenue losses of P55.2 billion for the sector.

Education News: About 400 private schools are in danger of closing due to greatly reduced enrollment, according to the COCOPEA (Coordinating Committee for Private Educational Assistance). Most employees are now working on reduced pay or are on no-work-no-pay status. Most of these institutions have reached the end of the line financially and no longer have the resources to continue. This echoes concerns earlier voiced by officials and educators about private schools and mentioned in earlier entries of dila.ph. With the burgeoning number of students and the trials brought by the China virus pandemic, this massive closure would be catastrophic. The 400 schools in danger of closing represent 80% of the membership of COCOPEA.

Local officials in Eastern Visayas complained that the government’s Balik Probinsya and Hatid Tulong initiatives ferried infected people to their areas. Gov’t urged to review Balik Probinsya screening

This comes after the increase in positive cases to over 300. The first case in Eastern Visayas came from a San Juan, Metro Manila resident who returned to Samar. Subsequently, previously negative areas in Leyte turned positive due to Balik Probinsya.

Education News: Albay student commits suicide because of online classes. A Grade 8 student about to enter Grade 9 did so because he was worried about the cost of network load or internet fees for online classes, which according to DepEd will be held in the coming school year. Earlier, in the first week of June, he saved a friend from commiting suicide.
Update: Following the suicide of the student in Albay, the DepEd clarified that classes are not limited to online ones but include printed modules, radio and television - as if to give the lie to the concerns of the student who committed suicide. In fact, according to the report, his class at the Sto. Domingo National High School in Albay was among those chosen for online class. And his worries that he could not afford the load for Internet triggered his suicide.
Update: A survey of parents by a radio station in Sta. Cruz, Manila revealed difficulties with virtual learning. A mother with four children said she could not afford four tablets for her children since she could barely afford food. Others expressed similar difficulties. Even attempts by the Manila government to provide gadgets were grossly inadequate. This comes on the heels of the suicide of a student in Albay over virtual learning.
More News: Assistance for 85,000 public school students in Makati. OTG plus modules (gadgets) plus face masks and five hours of Internet load. Excellent, though what of the families with several children (as in Manila)? And this is only Makati, one of the richest LGUs. What about other parts of the Metro, not to mention more distant areas? The suicide in Albay continues to loom.

Mere intent to commit an act and suspicion by the Anti-Terror Council is good enough for detention. Major universities and leading poltical science professors have warned against it.

News Report: Deputy Speaker Paolo Duterte filed a bill changing the name of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas. According to him, the name of the country's premier airport should not be colored by politics, but reflect its being a global destination, and showcase the 'national' language.

Intimately Related News Report: Most Filipinos now have a positive view of homosexuality. A survey revealed that 75% of Filipinos believe gays and lesbians should be accepted in society. Seriously aside, this, more than anything else, underscores that the country is indeed ruled by a Tagalog government. And while the bill is supposed to eliminate politics, it institutionalizes domination by the diabolocal subdialect of Manila over a multinational, multilingual and multicultural country. Political suppression at its worst.

News Report: On the first day that traditional jeepneys, albeit to a very limited extent, were allowed back on the road, a radio station's survey in the area where they are supposed to operate turned up no jeepneys. Thus, commuters were instead chasing taxis and buses.
A radio station checked jeepney routes around Metro Manila. Contrary to expectation, the 'kings of the road' were nowhere to be found. Instead they could be found begging. They gave various reasons. Some said operators charged the same boundary despite having half the passengers because of social distancing, so all of their earnings went to the boundary payment. Others said their routes had been taken over by 'modern jeepneys' which are China-made, unaffordable to drivers of traditional jeepneys and reportedly apt to break down more rapidly than traditional jeepneys.
There have been calls not just to support jeepney drivers, but also local jeepney manufacturers, who stand to lose to Pekingese manufacturers of 'modern jeepneys.' Foreigners, albeit 'friends' of the Philippines, stand to benefit from the misfortunes of Filipino workers and manufacturers.

bbc.co.uk/news/technology-52033217 Coronavirus: Zoom is in everyone's living room - how safe is it?
bbc.com/news/world-asia-53003688 June 11, 2020

News Report: Forbes magazine warns against Zoom. In an article entitled "Warning: Zoom makes encryption keys in China," by Thomas Brewster, the online edition of Forbes said that "Zoom, the videoconference giant that's gained huge popularity in the work-from-home coronavirus age, handles security data in China according to researchers. The information, on occasion, also includes encryption keys, the chunks of data that can unlock conversations, the academics found in their tests of software."
It continues, "The research, handed to Forbes ahead of publication on Friday, comes after a difficult time for Zoom in which it had to apologize for various shortcomings in its policy for security. The report's authors at the University of Toronto-based Citizen Lab, say that their findings raise issues about whether US government agencies should be using it at all."
"Yesterday, Forbes revealed US agencies handling the coronavirus response had spent a collective $1.3 million in Zoom technology in just a few days of March... Zoom hadn't responded to requests for comment, but in an interview published on Forbes on Friday, (Chinese-American) Chief Executive Eric Yuan said the company was going to check on how it was routing conversations to China, but emphasized the data was protected. As Citizen Lab hadn't sent it findings to Zoom, saying it was in the public interest to release the information as soon as possible, the videoconferencing company wasn't aware of the findings. But Yuan assured that if user data was being transferred to China when users aren't even based there, 'we are willing to address that.'"
Comment: It has been previously mentioned in this blog that China's companies, and companies with branches in China, must comply with a 2017 national security law that requires them to share intelligence with the government in Beijing.
