duterte on the cover of TIME magazine.

Image

According to Wikipedia:

"A strongman is a political leader who rules by force and runs an authoritarian regime or totalitarian regime. The term is often used interchangeably with "dictator" in the western world, but differs from a "warlord" and commonly lacks the negative connotations especially in some Eastern European and Central Asian countries."

And according ulit sa wikipedia, 3 daw ang na-tag as Strongman from the Philippines. They are Emilio Aguinaldo, Ferdinand Marcos & Rodrigo Duterte.

Ang ibang mga DDS, tuwang-tuwa sa galak dahil nasa cover daw ng Time si duterte dahil strongman daw.

Dapat imbestigahan na ng senado yan issue re: 60Million paid ads na napunta sa Tulfo brothers. Pero kung si Gordon lang ang mag-head ng investigation, wag na lang.

Yeah, his statement on this really made no sense as it was primarily his administration who would be able to use the ruling to our benefit.

The ironic thing is that ruling was going to be huge for our leverage, and he had all the tools to use diplomacy to ensure we were able to defend our rights.

His and his admin's logic and the logic of 'we will lose a war against China' is such a poor excuse. Of course we will lose, that's why our country went this route to begin with to go with the the Hague ruling. The way they used the Hague ruling and how they basically gave up our sovereignity is going to be remembered as one of this administration's biggest failings.

^ Pwede nga rin sana maging leverage ng iba pang claimant countries yun Hague ruling to the displeasure of china. Tayo ang naglakas ng loob and went with this route. Kung gagayahin sana ng ibang bansa din ay dagdag international pressure sa china sana.
Kaso si dutring naging head ng Asean, dito pa si pinas ginawa yun Asean summit. Tapos not whimper about it.
Sayang.

Sabi ni Wanda Teo na hindi daw niya alam na mapupunta sa programa ng mga kapatid nya yun sa ads. Pero sa MOA ay may pirma niya at ng kapatid nya. Palusot pa more.

True. The Hague ruling was just as big for those other countries like Thailand and Vietnam as it was for us. We could have put the pressure on them, but alas, here we are. They have militarized those islands and our government is showing no signs of urgency to try to defebd our sovereignity.

Yung sa mga Teo, yup, basically nahuli sila and now it's just a matter of time to see if makakalusot sila, or papalusutin sila. But that's just some BS the way they're blatantly pulling this shiet off.

WTF are you going to put that kind of money for tourism ads on a show that not many potential tourists are watching anyway? Conflict of interest issue aside, it's just plain stupid too.

^ May mga ads naman daw sa ibang channels like ABS-CBN and GMA pero mas malaking pondo (60 Milliion) ang nilaan para daw sa airing ng ads sa PTV 4. Ang mga tao, lotto results lang naman ata ang pinapanood sa PTV 4. Mga prospective tourists ba lotto result ng Pinas ang panonoorin? :sweat:

Isosoli na lang daw ng mga tulfo yun 60 million kahit na daw nagastos na sa production, etc.
Ok, dapat isoli. pero dapat managot din.
Ano yun, kung hindi pa nabisto, tuloy-tuloy na ang panggastos sa pangangampanya sa election?

I'd rather her not resign. I want her to face the allegations while still in office.

Nagbitiw pala siya. Sana nga personal reasons. Mahirap kasi kung na-witness mo na nga ang katarantaduhan ng iba tapos aalis ka lang at mananahimik.

If she broke the law, it's only right. What grinds my gear is only people that the president is pissed at gets the spotlight. No initiative or self monitoring from the sectors so that this doesn't happen in the first place. Our president is like the ego maniacal Trump who doesn't like criticism. But I follow US politics more, it's funnier.

the thing is no laws were broken.. pinagpipilitan nila yung missing saln when she was still working in UP daw kahit naka leave of absence siya.. ayaw nila paabutin sa impeachment proceedings dahil alam nila mahina yang reklamo na yan.. kaya dinaan sa quo warranto kung saan yung mga justices na bahala mag decide at mag pairal ng personal biases nila.. wala na mabigat na balitaktakan.. ni hindi makikita ng mamayan kung paano sila humantong sa mga naging desisyon nila..

Regardless of whether she broke the law or not - it's still not right because this act violates the constitution. Here's a good summary to see why this violates our constitution: http://opinion.inquirer.net/113104/the- ... -the-wrong

But like parokyano said - there were no laws broken - or at least that's to be determined in the court of impeachment.

If you followed this story before - it's a lot to do with all these Supreme Court Justices and their personal vendetta against Sereno.

funny thing is sinasabi nila gadon.. calida.. and other associate justices na sinira ni sereno ang integrity as CJ sa di paglabas ng mga nawawala niyang SALN during her leave of absence.. pero from initial impeachment protest biglang dinaan sa quo warranto na according sa law ay unconstotutional dagdag pa na lagpas 1 year na since ma appoint si serreno.. doon pa lang sira na ang ang integrity nila.. paano pa itong 6 associate justices na bago umabot sa kanila ang kaso nag announce na dapat ng alisin si serreno.. nandun na yung bias nila bago pa maging agenda itong quo warranto.. and ang masama hindi sila nag inhibit kahit inannounce na nila in public and decision nila.. zero integrity at all.. yung teresita castro day one pa lang bitter na hindi siya ang napili ni pnoy na kapalit ni corona na maging CJ and very public sa anomosity niya towards sereno..
