The Court of Appeals (CA) on Friday upheld the order of arrest issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC) against eight of the 10 Philippine Navy personnel charged with the 1995 murder of Ensign Philip Pestano. In a seven-page decision written by Associate Justice Nina Antonio-Valenzuela, the appeals court’s Special Sixth Division said there was no grave abuse of discretion on the part of Manila RTC Judge Josefina Siscar when she found probable cause to order their arrest. The appeals court said Siscar has complied with the law as the judge’s order noted that it has evaluated not only the charge sheet or information but the other related documents as well. The appellate court also dismissed the  the claim of the accused that there was no probable cause for the issuance of a warrant of arrest against them because the evidence of the case shows that the petitioners were not guilty of murder.
The CA pointed out that at the stage of determining probable cause for the issuance of a warrant of arrest, a judge is not yet tasked to review in detail the evidence submitted during the preliminary investigation. Records of the case showed that BRP Bacolod City, a Philippine Navy cargo ship, left Tawi-Tawi on Sept.
After seven days, the ship made a last stopover in Sangley Point and departed the same day for its final destination, the Navy headquarters in Manila. Before the ship reached Manila, Pestano was found dead inside his cabin, lying on the bed with a single gunshot wound in his right temple with a purported suicide note to his family. Based on the investigation by the Senate and the Armed Forces of the Philippines, it was ruled out that Pestano committed suicide. It was also discovered that Pestano had knowledge of illegal activities in BRP Bacolod City which posed as a possible motive behind his death. Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. has said majority of Liberal Party members in the House of Representatives are shifting their support for the Congress leadership bid of incoming Davao del Norte Rep. In a text message on Friday, Belmonte, who is also Liberal Party vice chair, said that with majority of the numbers favoring Alvarez, even he was sure the Mindanao congressman would be the next Speaker. Belmonte is seeking to reclaim the Speaker post counting on the numbers of around 100 Liberals, but it looks like he has conceded to the anointed  Speaker of presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.
Confirming that he met with the Speaker aspirant in his house on Thursday, Belmonte said many Liberals were planning to shift to the majority to vote for Alvarez, one of three members of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in the next 17th Congress. If Belmonte loses to Alvarez as Speaker, he will be the minority leader in Congress, according to the House rules. Alvarez has said that with half of the Liberals joining the PDP-Laban, the ruling party will be reduced to the minority in Congress.
As of his latest count, Alvarez said he had 180 lawmakers across party lines to his side, more than the majority of the 290-member House. Duterte is consolidating his forces in the lower house to push for his legislative agenda, which includes the reinstatement of the death penalty and the amendment of the Constitution by Constitutional Convention to convert the country’s system of government to federal. COPENHAGEN, Denmark—Sex is often considered a taboo topic in Islam, with discussions limited to how having sex before marriage and homosexuality are haram.
Prophet Muhammad, for instance, spoke extensively about all aspects of sexuality, such as the importance of foreplay, according to the activist. In the past, discussions on sexuality in Islam also extended to homosexuality, which has now been strictly defined as haram, without many attempts to study whether that is true by dissecting religious texts, she said.
In the past, followers of Islam also spoke about anal sex, now often considered taboo as it is associated with homosexuality. The reason why people in the Islamic community are so distanced from discussions on sex nowadays has nothing to do with sex itself, according to the activist. The Iglesia ni Cristo has advised the public about a possible heavy traffic  its evangelical mission may cause at the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) on Sunday, May 22. In an advisory, the religious sect asked for understanding from commuters and motorists of any inconvenience that may result from its gathering.
Delegates from different congregations will converge in the area for the mission, which will be led by INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo. The CIDG served the arrest warrant against Purisima upon his arrival from Butuan City and brought him to the Sandiganbayan around 3 p.m. Flanked by his police aides, Purisima wore shorts and rubber shoes in court for  booking procedures.
Police arrested Purisima a day after the Sandiganbayan issued a warrant against him as he faces a graft charge for an anomalous courier deal in 2011. In a resolution dated May 18, the anti-graft court Sixth Division said it found probable cause to try Purisima for graft and thus issued the arrest warrant.
The court thus rendered moot and academic Purisima’s motion to quash his graft charge and defer the arrest warrant. Purisima, an ally of President Benigno Aquino III, and 16 others were charged with one count of graft for acting allegedly with manifest partiality, evident bad faith and gross inexcusable negligence when they awarded the courier contract to the firm WerFast Documentary Agency, Inc.
The prosecution said Purisima violated Section 3(e) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act when he gave unwarranted benefit to Werfast. Purisima entered into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Werfast and accredited the firm as the PNP’s courier service provider for all the firearms license applications despite its failure to comply with government regulations on courier services.
Purisima and the respondents also approved the delivery by courier of firearms license as a mandatory policy in the PNP. The prosecution said Werfast failed to seek prior registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and failed to get authority from the Department of Transportation and Communications to operate a delivery service as well as an accreditation from the Department of Science and Technology. Also ordered arrested were retired Police Director Gil Meneses and dismissed Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) officials Chief Supt.
Werfast incorporators Mario Juan, Salud Bautista, Enrique Valerio, Lorna Perena and Juliana Pasia were also ordered arrested. Since they have posted bail for provisional liberty, the court set on June 20 the arraignment of dismissed Police Chief Supt. Graft is a criminal offense bailable upon the posting of a P30,000 bail bond for each count. Earlier, the Office of the Ombudsman dismissed Purisima, Petrasanta and the others for the administrative offense of grave misconduct, serious dishonesty and grave abuse of authority. The officials were forfeited of their retirement benefits and barred from being reemployed in government. In ordering the graft charges, the Ombudsman said Purisima entered into a courier service contract with Werfast although the latter had no corporate existence and juridical personality when the PNP entered into a MOA in May 2011. The Ombudsman found that no public bidding was conducted, and that the MOA was entered into although Werfast lacked the track record as a courier service company. Purisima and the officials also admitted that the accreditation documents from Werfast were incomplete and met only the minimum requirements.
The Ombudsman’s investigation also showed that WerFast engaged the services of LBC that cost P190 for deliveries within Metro Manila and P290 outside, while the other courier service providers only charge P90 within Manila. Purisima and the others stand accused of violating Section 3(e) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, which prohibits public officials from causing any undue injury to any party, or giving any private party any unwarranted benefits, advantage or preference in the discharge of his official administrative or judicial functions through manifest partiality, evident bad faith or gross inexcusable negligence.
Petrasanta already faces a separate graft trial before the Sandiganbayan for the missing AK-47 assault rifles allegedly sold to communist rebels.
TUGUEGARAO CITY—A nine-year-old girl is among the 55 people being treated for HIV-AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus-acquired immune deficiency syndrome) at Cagayan Valley Medical Center.
Her condition would be highlighted in a candle-lighting ceremony on May 27 in Tuguegarao City, Cagayan province, and on May 30 in Isabela’s Santiago City, Daran said.
Daran said the DOH needs to advocate safe sexual practices and prevent a projected rise of HIV-AIDS cases to 133,000 patients by 2022. The camp of vice presidential hopeful Senator Bongbong Marcos file a criminal case vs Comelec and Smartmatic. Both Smartmatic and Comelec have claimed that the change would not affect the results of the votes.
Marcos is in a close fight for the vice presidency with Camarines Sur Representative Leni Robredo, who is leading the race.
On Wednesday, the Marcos camp filed a demand to the Comelec to allow their IT experts to check their transparency servers. Drilon, vice chair of Liberal Party, is the incumbent Senate president while Enrile, whose term will expire on June 30, is the minority leader. At least three names are being floated to replace Drilon as Senate president when the 17th Congress opens in July. The three are Senators Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, Alan Peter Cayetano and Vicente “Tito” Sotto III. IBA, Zambales—Filipino-American Jonathan Dewayne Viane pleaded not guilty to killing a 23-year-old woman whose burnt remains were found in a river dike in San Felipe town last year.
Viane was arraigned on Thursday at the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 71 here on murder charges filed by relatives of Karie Ces “Aika” Mojica. RTC Branch 71 Judge Consuelo Amog-Bocar ordered Viane detained at the provincial jail after denying a petition filed by his lawyers to place the American under the custody of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI). He flew back to the United States on July 26 last year shortly after policemen launched a manhunt for him and another suspect, Nino de la Cruz. Agents of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation turned Viane over to the NBI at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Josar Mojica, the slain woman’s father, said, “I still have mixed emotions seeing him (Viane) in person. Josar said Viane left his wife in the US and took their son to the Philippines in April last year to escape a custody battle.
The judge also ordered the provincial warden to explain within 24 hours why the other suspect, De La Cruz, was allowed to keep and operate gadgets, such as computers and mobile phones, inside his cell. Lawyer Josefina Bueno, counsel of the Mojica family, manifested in court that De la Cruz had been posting photographs on social networking site Facebook from inside jail. The angst of the Bongbong Marcos for Vice President campaign is easy to understand; as the last tally of the unofficial count shows, the first-term senator and heir of the Marcos political tradition will likely come up less than a percentage point short of victory. In the Marcos universe, the signs of administration-engineered cheating were evident even before Election Day, because of, well, the surveys. Meeting reporters after his final campaign rally the Thursday before the election, Marcos aired his fear that the surveys were being manipulated. But here lies the first hole in the Marcos movie series, large enough to swallow entire suns. In Marcos’ alternate universe, no amount of criticism of the Marcos dictatorship and the martial law years can make a difference on his steady and methodical rise to the vice presidency. Now the Marcos campaign wants the Commission on Elections to grant its demand that it conduct a “systems audit.” The “it” refers not to the Comelec but to Marcos’ camp. Painful to the eye and ear is the term “presumptive president” being used by the media when referring to Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. We often copy from the Americans who describe their waiting president as “president-elect.” Their use of “presumptive” is confined to “presumptive nominee,” referring to an individual seeking, waiting for, or assured of party nomination as president.
I tell my students that we go beyond history into historiography, to appreciate the way in which history is constructed. The coming presidency of Rodrigo Duterte is taking more twists and turns than many expected, setting off roller-coaster emotions among both supporters and critics. Human rights defenders protested when Duterte said he would restore the death penalty, with a graphic description of how hanging would be used.
Conversely, the promise to release political detainees and offers of Cabinet positions to the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), have dismayed more conservative Duterte supporters who expected a tough law-and-order stance, with activists, the National Democratic Front (NDF), and the CPP included as targets.
Amid all this, a book review in the British newspaper The Guardian caught my eye and sent me into Amazon, only to find that the book won’t be available until June 1 (at a hefty $61). The book is Benjamin Moffitt’s “The Global Rise of Populism,” which is the result of his doctoral research at the University of Sydney.
The book will probably be a best-seller considering how, in recent years, populist politicians have gained power worldwide. Moffitt’s book is anchored on an important characteristic of populist politicians: They are not bound by a consistent ideology.
Instead of abstract ideological issues, populists latch on to and amplify people’s main anxieties, making people feel, Moffitt says, that “we’re on the precipice of failure at all times.” In Duterte’s case, this was zeroing in on street and neighborhood crime. Moffitt says that “bad manners,” including political incorrectness, are also important for populists. Moffitt observes that the bad manners will include sexual bragging, and cites Ecuadorian President Abdala Bucaram boasting of his “big balls” and Trump of the size of his hands. Because politics and media are now so intertwined, Moffitt writes, populism becomes more tempting for even mainstream politicians.
After I put down the book review, I thought: Winning an election is always the easy part with populist politicians, but staying in power and being able to effectively govern are far more difficult. Staying in power will require even more of that populism, but now in the face of realpolitik.
I see parallels with the Cory Aquino presidency, which started out as a rainbow coalition that included the Left.
The bottom line, too, beyond the theatrical performances, is that the Duterte victory came largely because of the people’s disillusionment with elite politics. Just to make myself clear, I did not vote for Rodrigo Duterte in the presidential election, and even if we turn back the hands of time I still won’t.
The fact is that I put a premium on youth, and to me someone who is 71 should be sent to pasture instead of thinking of leading this nation of millennials for the next six years.
Having said that, I must also say that I am a father, and if I still have the slightest bit of time left for wishing and dreaming, it should be meant for my children. The message moved even the most jaded among us, even those, including myself, who seemed to no longer care to dream, much less allow themselves the luxury of believing in economic stability, sustainable growth, food sufficiency, and every political prospect we have all heard before. Duterte’s idea of a man worthy to become president—someone who is willing to kill and be killed—might sound extreme, but the message resonates very powerfully especially among fathers, and, for that matter, anyone who is faced with the daunting responsibility of protecting the family. If only for my fatherly fears and insecurities, I have to grudgingly start wishing again, for the soon-to-be president to succeed. The next president, who is a father himself, has expressed perfectly what I am trying to say. The demands of his old role of padre de familia have become a hundred million times more daunting, with his new role of father to an entire nation. Adel Abillar is a private law practitioner with a small office in Quezon City where, he says, “I alternate between being boss and messenger.” He obtained his law and prelaw degrees from Manuel L. DACHAU, GERMANY—Here in the Visitors Center of the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site, I am taking my time to reflect, while they are still very fresh, on my thoughts upon having just visited the first (established in 1933) of the Nazi concentration camps and the blueprint for future ones, including the death camps in Auschwitz. The trip began with a short train ride from Munich—the Bavarian capital famous for its beer gardens—to the Bahnhof (train station) in Dachau. Most of the people wore the cheerful air of travelers who find themselves enjoying a beautiful springtime day. Furthermore, many countries around the world set quotas for the number of refugees they would accept from Nazi Germany—preventing many from escaping. I meant words thrown and accusations tweeted—insults exchanged and raunchy jokes hashtagged.
Indeed, shots were exchanged in the course of what is perhaps the most divisive and polarizing election season in the country’s newfound democracy. From a dark period in our history being reduced to a “martial law thingy” to shocking words flung by a political leader’s child against another political leader seeking high office, all these did nothing to inform the electorate on the candidates and their platforms.
Whoever said that “sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me” had no idea what the internet and audience-driven platforms can do.


I was raised to give words—whether spoken or written (or posted, in this age)—the sanctity they deserve.
LONDON—As America’s friends and allies look on in astonishment at the all-but-certain prospect of a contest between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in November’s US presidential election, they need to do more than just wring their hands.
The crucial point about the 2016 election is not just that a reality-TV star and property magnate who has never held elected office has emerged as the presumptive Republican candidate.
In every US presidential election in modern times, America’s friends and allies have had their private preferences.
Trump declared in that speech that he wants the United States to be “predictably unpredictable,” but he also made it clear that he won’t abandon his basic position. Regional deals, such as the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (Nafta) among the United States, Mexico and Canada, are a “total disaster” that have tied America’s hands.
There are two sorts of things that friends and allies can and should do to prepare for the worst. A weak Japan and a fractious collection of 28 countries in the European Union would be a tempting target for President Trump. Such moves, which are needed in any event, would make it easier to start on the task of building stronger alliances—which may well become essential.
If a Trump administration seeks to scrap Nafta, Canada and Mexico will need to make common cause.
And yet European solidarity is fraying, to say the least, thanks to the migrant crisis and the economic aftermath of the 2008 financial crash.
Given the possibility of trade wars, currency wars, and a renunciation of long-held security alliances within the next nine to 12 months, it is time to put regional solidarity ahead of old enmities and the forces of fragmentation. Internet trolls, too, will dramatically decrease in numbers, especially after the vice presidential race will have been decided with finality. Earlier, in a dinner with classmates, all of us in our late 60s, we joined what may be a national pastime today—speculating on a Duterte presidency.
I expect Congress to find its way to Mayor Duterte (I will keep calling him “Mayor” because I read he prefers being called Mayor of the Philippines). Which is why I am tempted to be scornful at many who, during elections, will call the masa “bobotantes” as if the rich and powerful do not somersault with their values and principles when what is practical calls for it.
It is those who have less options in life that I cannot take to task in the same way as those with more options. If we are ready to change the weak in us and contribute our personal goodness and strength to the common good, then I believe that Mayor Duterte will want to follow our lead.
I feel sorry for those who have been brainwashed into believing that a grim period in Philippine history was a “golden era,” that martial law  was good for the nation.
Which brings me to another point: It is understandable that Filipinos were disappointed when the Cory Aquino administration, which  succeeded the Marcos dictatorship, failed to dramatically turn the country around as they had hoped for and expected.
All the abuses perpetrated against countless civilians by the regime can never be justified! The inability to feel with the victims and survivors of human rights violations committed by the Marcos regime is a form of affliction. I therefore join the call to make our young today more aware of the martial law abuses and terror. Include in all Araling Panlipunan (Social Studies) and Philippine History textbooks to be used in schools a section on martial law, how it took away our freedom and rights and stunted the country’s development. Have students write and perform skits or plays about the massive corruption in the martial law years. Gather the survivors of martial law abuses and engage them to share their personal experiences during martial law with students in school tours.
For broadcast media, theater groups, film producers and writers, produce documentaries, plays and movies about martial law. Here’s praying that these ideas (and other good ones out there) will be realized soon enough for and through all generations.
Let’s hope that when presented with the truth, the Filipino youth will become more discerning when they vote in future elections. LOCAL stocks saw a bloodbath that dragged the main index to the 7,200 level on Friday as investors weigh the US Federal Reserve’s hawkish clues and incoming President Rodrigo Duterte’s choice of Cabinet members.
A veteran stock market dealer said investors were bracing for another interest rate hike by the US Fed, which hinted of such hawkish move coming by June or July.
The day’s decline was led by the property counter which faltered by 2.68 percent while the financial, holding firms and services counters slipped 1 percent. Investors sold down shares of SMIC, ALI, MPI, Megaworld and GTCAP which all slid by over 3 percent while SM Prime, PLDT and BDO all declined by over 2 percent. AC, Metrobank and Meralco all slipped by over 1 percent while URC, JG Summit, Semirara and BPI also declined.
One notable decliner outside the PSEi was Alterra, which slid by 44.79 percent in heavy volume.
Including profits attributable to minority interest, Megawide’s first quarter net profit rose by 55 percent to P573.16 million, the company reported to the Philippine Stock Exchange on Friday. Megawide posted a 119 percent or P3.21 billion increase in consolidated revenue compared to the same quarter last year, with core construction business contributing the lion’s share of 93 percent.
Megawide chief financial officer Oliver Tan said: “The country’s property sector continues to be strong, buoyed by the growing demand for residential and especially office spaces primarily from the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry. The enhanced construction revenue was topped by P2.5 billion worth of new contracts for the year’s first quarter. Megawide has likewise started to unlock values from its diversification into infrastructure projects.
MCIA operator and Megawide airport subsidiary GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corp.(GMCAC) boosted its own revenues by 23 percent, driven by a 10-percent increase in passenger traffic compared to the same period in 2015. Construction of MCIA’s terminal 2 is currently ongoing and is expected to be operational by the end of June 2018. Amidst a controversial fuel-economy testing scandal in Japan on Wednesday, Tetsuro Aikawa, the head of Japan’s largest trading company, Mitsubishi Motors Corp (MMC), will reportedly step down from his post.
Citing a report from The Wall Street Journal, the 62-year-old chief would resign to take responsibility for overstating mileage in some of their cars, while also taking blame for improperly testing its vehicles.
Other executives, meanwhile, attributed the company’s recent struggles to repeated instances of keeping quality control problems under wraps, which ultimately stained their reputation.
Pressure from management to speed up development cycles and improve fuel economy were also listed as hindrances, according to the report. Mitsubishi’s sales have drastically declined in recent months, while its costs have continued to rise since the company’s admission of falsifying data related to fuel economy.
The false report was reportedly made to make mileage look better on four models— including the so-called ‘minicars’ sold only in Japan.
Two of these minicars, with 0.66 liter engines, were manufactured by Mitsubishi and sold under Nissan’s brand name. Meanwhile, another high ranking MMC executive, Ryogo Nakao, will reportedly follow Aikawa’s departure amidst the controversy.
The Japanese financial services company said it expects to draw as many as 50,000 individual clients who will invest in Philippine stocks and condominium projects.
Japanese investors are currently looking for opportunities outside their own country, where growth has tapered off in recent years. Regina Online is a joint venture between stock brokerage firm Regina Capital Development Corp. Seven Seas is an introducing broker (which has a direct relationship with clients and refers them to partners for investment opportunities) and the agreement with the Japanese firm is significant because it is a first for the Philippines, particularly in the equities market, Tan said.
Mendoza said that only institutional investors have been able to invest in companies listed in the Philippine stock market and retail investors have not had the same opportunities. The partnership of Regina Online and Seven Seas paves the way for similar agreements with companies that can bring in retail investors from Taiwan, South Korea, and other countries, Mendoza said. The move was in step with the company’s plan to grow in scale, amid fierce competition in a crowded space apart from the uncertain economic picture overseas. Petnet is already the largest agent network here of United States-based money transfer giant Western Union. For example, the oil price slump has taken its toll on economies reliant on the resource, such as those in the Middle East.
Ocampo said the firm saw a “decline in transactions” in terms of remittances coming from that region in the first quarter of 2016. Of its 2,100 locations across the Philippines, a little over 400 are company-owned, Ocampo said.
The economic integration in Southeast Asia is not expected to help improve Filipinos’ access to overseas job markets within the region, but will instead further encourage skilled workers to go farther afield, according to the Employers Confederation of the Philippines (Ecop). Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. He simply personally reviews the prosecution’s initial determination finding probable cause, to see if it is supported by substantial evidence,” the decision read. I told him most of the Liberal Party bloc would like to join the majority and support the Duterte administration and him for Speaker,” Belmonte said. It’s haram, aib [shameful],” writer and activist for sexuality in the Arab region, Shereen El Feki, said during a session at the fourth Women Deliver conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Thursday. The irony of this situation is that 1,000 years ago we were known for being too sexed up,” Shereen said.
And yet, we have a history where we had a lively debate on what is the actual meaning of these verses in the Koran,” Shereen said. Let me tell you that historically we had a much more open, pragmatic and tolerant approach to sexuality,” Shereen said. They like to put people in boxes and cages because they’re much easier to manage,” said Shereen, citing as an example the need for women to be accompanied by guardians at certain times.
Dexter Corpuz said Purisima voluntarily surrendered to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) upon arriving at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) Terminal 3 around 2 p.m. Raul Petrasanta, a former official of Firearms and Explosives Office (FEO) and Central Luzon police director and the FEO officials Senior Supt. The respondents also gave absolute credence to the company’s representative that it has a joint venture with CMIT Consultancy Group, Inc. Jonathan dela Cruz, campaign adviser of the vice presidential candidate and of ABAKADA party-list, filed the 14-page complaint on his behalf. Bilang isang mambabatas importante na maintindihan ‘yung paglabag ng isang batas para pagdating ng panahon, sa susunod po na eleksyon at may aumomated ulit makikita natin ang dapat pagbabago sa batas,” he told reporters after filing. His camp claims that after the new script was introduced on the night of the elections, it affected the results of the votes in favor of Robredo. Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara, there is no single party at present with a sufficient number of senators to form a majority bloc in the chamber. 3, 2015 in Iowa, while members of the police’s Special Action Force in Metro Manila arrested De la Cruz on Aug. During the debate itself, Marcos was largely on the defensive, and was being defined not only by Cayetano but by Robredo, too, and to an extent even by Sen. I don’t remember the term being used on Presidents Aquino, Macapagal-Arroyo, Estrada or Ramos while they waited in limbo before taking the oath and assuming office. How Duterte is referred to before he assumes office is more than just English usage; it reflects bias.
But the double-dead threats have come with promises to release all political prisoners, which elates many human rights groups. Nevertheless, the review provided enough information for me to think harder about Duterte, and populism in the Philippines.
Moffitt’s interest in populism came out of his native Australia, where he grew up during the era of populist politician Pauline Hanson, whose racist views he found “abhorrent.” But, precisely because such “abhorrent” ideas seemed to have a wide following, he was intrigued enough to go into a global review of populism.
Moffitt is probably following the news now about Duterte and, halfway across the world, Donald Trump, the presumptive (why does it sound like “presumptuous” to me?) Republican nominee in the current US electoral circus. One could argue that all politics is grand theater, and that politicians are actors (and in the Philippines, actors are politicians).  But for Moffitt, populist leaders are far more intentionally performative, and, from excerpts of his book, I’d suggest populist leaders even set up their own stage, scenes and props. In both the United States and the Philippines, these “bad manners” were predicted, over and over again, as possibly leading to the downfall of the populist politician. Duterte is mild compared to those two when it comes to bragging about personal assets, but he exceeded them with his joke about the Australian missionary raped and killed in prison.
Again we see that in the Philippines, with social media in particular becoming so important in shaping a politician’s image. They tend to be people who believe they can bring about radical change, with popular support. This time around, it was being fed up with not just empty promises but with outright incompetence that has led to daily trials and tribulations for Filipinos across classes. A man of that age doesn’t even stand a chance of getting hired for a regular government job when the retirement age is so much less. I have lived long enough to say that I have seen it all—the crime and grime and extreme poverty that shock citizens of other countries but in the Philippines are a common fact of life. Again, because I have managed to survive life this far, with all its inequities, and remained standing.
I care seriously, even more so at this point in my life, about the future of my sons and daughters.
But realistically, it was more like a desperate cry for help that the suffering masses unleashed at the polls in choosing a most unlikely candidate. In the end, the intellectual discourses of the other candidates paled beside the impact of fear—fear for the lives of our children and other loved ones—that Duterte’s speeches consistently delivered, and always with aplomb. I just have to acknowledge that the new leadership will have a part to play in keeping our children alive and safe. We retraced the route that the prisoners took, from the gate where they were flogged and the stations where they were stripped naked and shaven to the point of bleeding—to the crematorium where their corpses were burned. While Hitler was the mastermind of the entire operation, she painstakingly reminded us of the context in which the Third Reich and the “Final Solution” emerged: lost nationalist pride owing to Germany’s defeat in World War II, the collapse of the economy due to the Great Depression, and the Nazi propaganda machine which blamed the Jews for many of Germany’s problems. One could not miss Colinne’s allusions to the state of the world today: fleeing refugees, the rise of right-wing nationalism in the West, prejudice against certain groups of people, and a global economy that is at risk for financial and social crises. While many have blamed religion for fostering violence—and while there are those like the members of the Islamic State who kill in the name of their god—the Nazi regime was informed by a philosophy that rejected God, and saw man as caught in the struggle for the “survival of the fittest.” The fact that a highly-educated, “modern” society could degenerate into one that industrialized murder should make us rethink the confidence we have for what “progress”—technological or otherwise—can accomplish.
For some people to be able to deny the Holocaust—despite the insurmountable documentary and testimonial evidence—is proof that we cannot take history for granted: It is contingent not only on the past but also on the present, and it can be easily revised for certain people’s ends, or forgotten. While walking by the banks of the River Danube in Budapest, I came across some metal boots that were fixed to the ground. But once in a while, we also need to be reminded of its ugliness—not to make our lives miserable, but to make us more sensitive to the misery of others, and the lessons that this misery, past and present, can teach us. But not in the form of bullets that ricochet off concrete, triggered by criminals on the loose.
I am thinking of brute statuses and nasty remarks flung to and fro—shots fired, not across battlefields, but across cyberspace. That Filipinos were very passionate and committed to their choice of leaders was evident, as shown by the 81.62-percent voter turnout. But the heated discussions and exchanges online were startling and discomforting, not so much because of the content as the questionable veracity of the claims made, the violence that fragments of ideas were capable of insinuating, and the recklessness by which they were presented. What was revealed in the thick, toxic, vitriolic tweets published and statuses posted in the course of the past few months was the fact that we have commoditized words, bastardized their purpose and power, and negated our responsibility of using them truthfully. Back when 3G connection was unheard-of and setting up a blog in Blogger or LiveJournal was like learning how to code, it was considered both a blessing and a privilege to be granted a small space in what was then a young internet world that would facilitate our thoughts and our words.
Like time, words are intangibles we cannot take back after they are said, or spent.  Likewise, I was raised to believe that the words we use reveal the kind of upbringing we have had, the education we received, and the quality of media we embrace.


This is not an opinion about freedom of speech either, the constitutionality of which I have no deep knowledge anyway. But in the highs and lows of our emotions, in the face of whatever is thrown our way, may it be of matters of the nation or matters of our own private lives, we sanctify what we put out. It is the enormous difference that a victory by Trump would make for the rest of the world compared with a victory by Clinton.
But never before have the Democratic and Republican candidates been as different as chalk and cheese. Just how dramatic cannot be known, but the normal assumption that candidates play to their party’s core supporters during the primary season but then tack to the center for the general election cannot be relied on in Trump’s case.
Trump confirmed in his speech on foreign policy to the Center for the National Interest in Washington, DC, on April 27 that “America First” would be the overriding theme of his administration. A Japan that had, over the next 12 months, truly embraced the growth-enhancing strategy of liberalization that has often been promised by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe would be in a stronger position. If it chooses to discard the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement negotiated by the Obama administration with 12 Asia-Pacific economies, those countries, perhaps led by Japan or Australia, must be ready to carry on the deal, or something like it, among themselves. To avoid being pushed around by Trump over trade or security, members of the European Union and Nato must be prepared to stick together. On June 23, British voters could make the situation far worse if they vote in their referendum to leave the European Union. There have always been the haters, so consistent in their presence that the term “haters” was coined to given them a common identity.
Reserving a number of departments for an organization that is actively fighting government, the Armed Forces and the Philippine National Police is a delicate matter.
From the time that Ferdinand Marcos allowed elections after declaring martial law, I have not seen Congress stand up to any President upon his or her assumption of power.
Well, the masa are also trying to be practical, also trying to defend their immediate interests—including the next meals for their families.
Survival is a powerful master, more powerful than a Constitution, more power than a legal system, more powerful than a president. I have a clear recall of the last 60 years of Philippine history and seen the slow struggle for change. I realized this while reading the many social media comments on the tight race for the vice presidency between the late dictator’s son and the widow from Bicol. The fact is, during the dark days of dictatorship, many were imprisoned, tortured, even raped and killed just for being vocal with their dissenting political views!
But it disturbs me that supposedly schooled and thinking Filipinos are peddling the idea that Cory Aquino’s failure to live up to the people’s great expectations has made martial law palatable and preferable.
To feel pain from those atrocities, one need not go through the experience; all he has to have is a sense of humanity. At the same time, the dealer said the market was jittery over Duterte’s choices of Cabinet members. There were 56 advancers which were overwhelmed by 140 decliners while 42 stocks were unchanged.
Non-PSE stock SECB, which is debuting on the MSCI Philippines index after month-end, gained 0.52 percent. Revenues from operations of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) contributed P431 million.
Domestic and international flights increased by 9 percent and 13 percent, respectively, from March 2015. President Tetsuro Aikawa speaks during a press conference in Tokyo, Wednesday, May 18, 2016. Equities investors will be referred to local partner Regina Online for equities investments, Seven Seas sales and marketing manager Sawaki Masahiro said. And the 50,000 clients would not come in one wave; we’ll be happy if Seven Seas can start by bringing in 1,000 to 2,000 within the year,” Regina Online investing sales head Fernando Martinez said. Mendoza also said that for retail, it is normally Filipino individual investors who invest in stocks abroad rather than the other way around. The rollout of this new identity would be completed across 2,100 branches in its nationwide network by July this year. The entry of the Aboitiz Group, which acquired 51 percent of the company last year for about P1 billion, paved the way for its expansion to new areas in terms of payment solutions. He cited an existing tie-up with City Savings Bank for salary loans of  teachers and government employee pensioners.
However, this was offset by money flowing from Filipino workers based in the United States, he said. Dee, acting president of Ecop, told members of the Philippine Bar Association last Wednesday the deployment of overseas Filipino workers would go as usual even if the Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Framework Agreement on Services provided a mandate for mutual regional arrangements (MRAs). If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. In the last weeks of the long and tumultuous campaign, Robredo had managed to catch up with Marcos in the surveys; the last surveys of the three most credible polling organizations all showed a virtual tie for first. Alan Peter Cayetano spent a lot of time leveling criticism after criticism at Marcos and his father’s two decades in power. The right thing to do should have been to ask for an independent third party to conduct the audit. We’re certainly seeing that in Duterte who, while declaring himself a socialist, is not with any political party.
But Moffitt says that on the contrary, bad manners are essential to the populist style, especially when coming from a less privileged class (Duterte’s parents were middle-class) and up against politicians from the elite (in our case, Mar Roxas especially, and the ruling Liberal Party).
Gone are the days of rhetorical promises; now politicians have to brand themselves, and where they used to fear controversies, they now know scandals can add to their popularity. Let us leave the mantle of leadership to the young and capable, and tell the senior citizens among us to watch the sunset from their rocking chairs instead. I pray every day for them to be able to walk the streets at night without being harmed and without getting groped inside a crowded LRT train while heading home from school. Where previously it paid to be highly educated and politically correct, this time the voters didn’t mind taking chances with someone who didn’t fit the norm—someone pedestrian instead of prim and proper. Sometimes, in his exuberance, he appeared to descend to the level of the criminal mind, as when he made remarks totally out of line about a rape-murder, which rightfully drew brickbats from critics, but only momentarily.
We knew, of course, what a concentration camp is all about, but actually being there brought a renewed sense of its significance. And then she stressed that the Holocaust was enabled by the complicity of many parties: from companies like BMW that made use of forced labor from the camps, to philosophers like Martin Heidegger who provided intellectual cover for Nazism. These served to remind people that once upon a time, on that very spot, Jews were ordered to take off their shoes, then shot, so that their bodies fell into the river. And no, these aren’t the shots that make up prime-time news, the kind that involve police in hot pursuit of some bandit in a bonnet.
Not between heroes and villains but between ordinary persons and average citizens, masked, not by bonnets, but by filtered profile pictures and fake accounts.
It can and should be expected, though, if social media were to be examined days and months leading to the ninth of May. As antiquated as the belief in the importance of lineage, pedigree and “proper” family background (as some have claimed that “the son is not like the father”)? This, instead, is an opinion on discernment, and our responsibility to give credence to our words by meaning what we say and standing by them even without the safety of online fortresses. There was no unbridgeable gulf between Reagan and Carter, or Clinton and Bush, or Bush and Gore, or Obama and McCain.
He would reject multilateral trade deals and institutions, take a much tougher line on illegal immigration, and forge a new approach to defense and security alliances. And they can expect tough measures by his administration if they have an enduringly large bilateral trade surplus with the United States.
But the author of the 1987 bestseller “The Art of the Deal” would surely agree that sound preparation is the essence of striking a good bargain.
The other is to shore up their alliances and friendships with one another, in anticipation of an “America First” rupture with old partnerships and the liberal international order that has prevailed since the 1940s.
So would European countries that dropped their obsession with fiscal austerity and used public-investment programs to kick-start growth and reduce unemployment. That may mean being ready to spend more on their own defense—a demand by Trump that is not unreasonable. To strengthen Britain, and the European Union itself, in anticipation of Trump, they would be well advised to vote to stay in. Japan, for example, has close ties with Southeast Asian countries but no formal security relationships with them. Before, during and after elections, the haters will be there and we might as well accept their existence.
For as long as there are people wanting to smear other people and have the money to pay for it, internet trolls are the new mercenaries.
He will never know them all and they will be lucky to shake his hand once or twice in the next six years. But I am sure that Mayor Duterte is aware just how sensitive and complicated things are and how much more they will get to be as a wish approaches reality.
And until poverty is effectively challenged and reversed, the poor will remain vulnerable to promises of food, clothing and shelter. If we do, then Mayor Duterte will be even more radical in trying to follow our expressed voice. It is not hard to understand why there has been little change when we expect government to change but are not willing to make a small change in ourselves. It was reported that several seats were earmarked for the Communist Party while the Department of Public Works and Highways portfolio was given to a Villar scion – perceived to be part of a political horse-trading that for some, dashed hopes of any dramatic change under the incoming administration. Together with Bangalore-based partner GMR Infrastructure Limited, the group took over operations of the MCIA in November 2014 using the public-private partnership (PPP) framework. If he maintains that Social Weather Stations, Pulse Asia, and the Standard’s Laylo Report all show him in the lead, he cannot simply wish that inconvenient plot point, about Robredo sharing the lead, away. Cayetano later revealed to the Inquirer that right after the debate, Marcos went up to him and said, “It’s not going to work.” He meant that Cayetano’s raising of the martial law issue would not have the impact Cayetano intended. Immediate feedback after the debate showed that Cayetano was seen as a dominant player, and his quip about Marcos being ready to steal his time was quite possibly the single most resonant moment of a debate watched by millions. Even members of the upper class had their complaint, such as not getting their car plates or driver’s licenses on time.
By the time I was past my youth it had become perfectly clear and acceptable to me that some of us are born entitled to the best that life can give, and others will never have it the same way until the day they die.
I pray desperately that there will be enough jobs waiting for them when the time comes that I can no longer provide for what they need. Criticized for lacking a clear-cut economic platform—and indeed Duterte’s interest in the economy seemed equal only to his very basic understanding of social graces—he made up for this in a big way by running his campaign on a peace-and-order agenda.
Instead of derailing his presidential run, the same shocking incident seemed to cement his connection with the fed-up and reckless masses.
If someone can look into the future and tell me that my children were meant to be like their grumpy old man when they themselves grow old, I will still say let them be. People had brought their selfie sticks and DSLRs, but there was none of the usual posing at the entrance—or inside the memorial itself.
This simple but haunting memorial—as well as dramatic films like “Schindler’s List”—made me realize that art can play a big role in the labor of commemoration.
Neither did the firing take place between juvenile delinquents who fight in packs in dark corners and tight alleys, nor between matinee idols and hated villains in some old action film. But years down the road, when our Facebook accounts can hold for us 4,000 friends and posting a tweet takes seconds over smartphones, the privilege became an entitlement and the sacredness gave way to trending topics. Has it become so customary to establish our infallibility simply because social media does not require us to footnote and reference the claims we make? If Trump finds evidence of it after having won the White House, he would likely admire his counterparts for it, even if secretly. It will also mean being sufficiently united to avoid being picked off singly by an American bully.
Both Japan and its nearest neighbor, South Korea, have longstanding security treaties with the United States, but are hostile to each other.
He must have cards up his sleeve, not to take advantage of the Left, but to push a peace agenda with the least pain and the most benefit for all concerned.
Most of the time, they submit to authority or the wealthy because they are resigned to receiving little than none at all. I look at the OFWs who take that chance to change their inherited destiny even though the pain of separation hits even before they leave the country.
Thinking that focused criticism of the martial law years won’t have an impact is another logical hole in the alternative universe.
Also, most of the time government inefficiency was wrongly interpreted as corruption, eroding the claims of daang matuwid (straight path).
His in-your-face style of reminding the voters at every turn that no one is safe in this violent world, that his battle is about keeping our children safe and alive, struck a sensitive chord in our collective psyche. Surely there are many others, but one thing is clear: History is too important to be relegated to textbooks, and transmitting it to future generations is an uphill battle that requires much effort and thought. How much could it have been back when people’s only platform was made up of pen and paper journals!
Can we now cuss and threaten and bully others because we can hide behind anonymity or assumed identities?
Freedom being, not the privilege to do whatever we want to do, but the privilege to choose what is right? If only the public knew how many are angling to be appointed—and not only for a deep desire to serve the public. It is not so much that he has radical ideas because, in fact, his ideas are quite simple and straightforward.
It will amaze many to realize that the most powerful and wealthy are the first to bend to a new President. Somehow, I cannot see how what we want, if expressed clearly and strongly enough, will not be a primary influence to what Duterte will do as President. Sometimes, though, they get desperate and do desperate things, like committing crimes, like joining an armed insurgency, like being part of rebellion or terrorism. They did not wait for government to change—they took the lead for their own lives and the lives of their families. This is still something worth looking forward to with a feeling of gratitude, if one remembers the many young and promising lives cut short by senseless, violent crime. Rather, then, it is the sense that he gives to most people that he will do as he says if he has to take all legal shortcuts to do so.
The point I am trying to emphasize is not a new or complicated principle; it’s simply the truth—that change must begin with us, that 100 million is greater than one president. Yet, they reached a certain critical mass and are changing not just government but our nation.
