Why Miriam Defensor Santiago should be the next President of the Philippines


 We ran an article about the Poe-Escudero tandem last August 2015 when the talks of pairing them were being boiled on the press. It was an exciting tandem so to speak. It was before the height of Grace Poe’s citizenship controversy. And as much as the pairing elicit fun fare, we thought that an Escudero-Poe tandem could be much better choice instead of the other way around. We just based it on both Escudero and Poe’s political experiences, and the former has the most advantage when it comes to that field. Still on that article, you may want to read Escudero-Poe […]


Gringo Honasan Transcribed (Part 1): “I’ll put my 42 years of public service on the line and tell the people that what makes me different – the strength, courage of my convictions, and the audacity to make things happen. I will help solve crimes or die trying”


 Election period or not, we have had the opportunities on several occasions to meet and sit down with former soldier-turned-rebel-turned senator Gregorio Ballesteros Honasan II, mostly commonly known as Gringo Honasan, and every time we see him it’s always the same man we’ve met like the first time we met him some couple of years ago. The gallant Honasan, who would be turning 68 this March 14, was an ordinary  soldier for 17 years prior to his 7 years stint as a rebel, and 18 years as senator. He’s keen and planning to retire on 2019, “But I think God wants […]

OFWs appeal to Bureau of Customs new Balikbayan Box Tax Rule


 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) around the globe and their families in the country are appealing to the Bureau of Customs headed by Customs Commissioner Alberto Lina to stop implementing new Balikbayan Box Tax Rule where customs officials are allowed to open and inspect incoming balikbayan boxes for taxable goods. This new rule, according to the Customs Chief Lina will prevent the abuse on sending items that ‘can well may be used for commercial purposes.’ “The contents of a balikbayan box must not exceed US$500.00 in value. Canned goods, grocery items and other household effects must not exceed a dozen a kind, while apparel, […]


Escudero-Poe tandem plausible in 2016


 Recently,  the Escudero-Poe tandem floats as one of the powerhouse team to beat in the coming Philippines 2016 Election. This, if both Sen. Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero and Sen. Grace Poe will come to a final decision and seal their political partnership. This would be a great tandem to watch out for. Chiz for President and Poe for Vice President. But why not the other way around? Although Poe has a powerful charisma over to win people’s hearts and votes, it would be smart for her to stay on the second position for the meantime, rather to seek the highest position in the land this early.

That happened on a Saturday late afternoon.  Then it happened one more time the following Monday.  And even days before that incident, the MRT trains suffered from an on and off technical difficulties and obviously, the paying passengers were the ones who got hassled. Just so […]
