Did Duterte Really Call On The US Against China? Watch The Video

In a news released by different media outfits today, the netizens are skeptical about the sudden "turn" of President Rodrigo Duterte's stance towards going into war with gigantic China.
According to the news, the president is now "invoking a defense  fact with America" to help the Philippines go to battle with China.


they just lie there and they die there  are you warm, are you real, mona lisa?

The said video which the news outfits has taken quote about the president allegedly asking the help of America is taken from the program of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy published on Youtube on July 16, 2019. 
“I’m calling now America. I’m invoking the RP-US pact. I would like America to gather all their Seventh Fleet in front of China. I’m asking them now. And I will join them,” Duterte said in the part of the video.
However, the statement appeared to be maliciously misquoted. If you would watch the video from 55:00, the president is talking about how the relationship with the US becomes eventually sour and the the relationship with China was restored.
All along, the president relates why he would not want to go to war with China because he do not want the nation to be ruthlessly pulverized.

In the latter part of the speech, we would hear the president talk about the possible aftermath in a manner with some jest said, "maybe that will be the end of Palawan, Palawan will be devastated, maybe occupied or if there will be nuclear bombs, then we will dry up. So, nothing will grow here. So nothing will grow here, we can just wait, just like a big hole coming our way, to suck us to eternity and then we can sing the 'Mona Lisa'.
After this he sang a part from the famous song that goes;
"they just lie there and they die there are you warm, are you real, mona lisa?"

Do You Know The Three Countries Most Trusted By Filipinos?

A survey conducted by Social Weather Stations (SWS) to about 1,200 people interviewed face to face revealed the three most trusted countries for Filipinos. These are Japan, US and Canada.




A survey conducted by Social Weather Stations (SWS) to about 1,200 people interviewed face to face revealed the three most trusted countries for Filipinos. These are Japan, US and Canada.        Sponsored Links  The US, Canada and Japan are the countries most trusted by Filipinos, according to the latest survey of the Social Weather Stations (SWS).  The three countries received “very good” net trust ratings of +68, +55 and +54, respectively, based on the SWS Dec. 8 to 16 poll last year.  Net trust score of the US went up eight points to +68 (75 percent much trust, seven percent little trust) from +60 percent last September.  Canada’s net trust rating, on the other hand, rose to +55 (65 percent much trust, 10 percent little trust) from “good” +41 percent previously.  In the case of Japan, its net trust rating jumped eight points from a “good” +46 to “very good” +54.  The survey said “moderate” trust ratings were recorded for Singapore at +29, Malaysia at +20, Thailand at +19, Indonesia at +18, Brunei at +16 and Vietnam at +13.  It found “neutral” net trust ratings for Myanmar at +8, Cambodia at +7, China at +7 and Laos at +3.  It found a “poor” -19 net trust rating for North Korea.  “Except for the US and North Korea, the net trust ratings last December were at least one grade higher compared to when they were last surveyed for all the countries tested in the survey,” the SWS said.  The SWS terminology for net trust ratings are as follows: +70 and above, “excellent”; +50 to +69, “very good”; +30 to +49, “good”; +10 to +29, “moderate”; +9 to -9, “neutral”; -10 to -29, “poor”; -30 to -49, “bad”; -50 to -69, “very bad”; -70 and below, “execrable.”  China’s net trust rating rose from poor to neutral at +7 (38 percent much trust, 31 percent little trust) last December, up by 20 points from the -13 in September.  Trust in China improved amid its continued construction activities in the disputed South China Sea, which Beijing claims almost in its entirety.  The Philippines, along with Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims in the potentially mineral-rich contested waters.  SWS noted that net trust in China has been positive in only nine out of 45 surveys since it first surveyed the country in August 1994.  Net trust rating also rose by three grades from very bad to neutral for Laos, at +3 (27 percent much trust, 24 percent little trust) in December, up by 54 points from the -51 in October 1995 when SWS first rated the country.  Net trust rating stayed poor for North Korea, at -19 (24 percent much trust, 43 percent little trust) last December, up by nine points from the -28 last September.  SWS first surveyed public trust in North Korea in March 2003 and found a net trust rating of bad -31.  Net trust in North Korea has since then been negative, ranging from a bad -34 in May 2012 to a neutral -5 last March.  The survey used face-to-face interviews of 1,200 adults, 18 years old and above, nationwide.

The three countries got “very good” net trust ratings of +68, +55 and +54, respectively, based on the SWS Dec. 8 to 16 survey on 2017.
The survey said “moderate” trust ratings were recorded for Singapore at +29, Malaysia at +20, Thailand at +19, Indonesia at +18, Brunei at +16 and Vietnam at +13.

It found “neutral” net trust ratings for Myanmar at +8, Cambodia at +7, China at +7 and Laos at +3.

It found a “poor” -19 net trust rating for North Korea.

“Except for the US and North Korea, the net trust ratings last December were at least one grade higher compared to when they were last surveyed for all the countries tested in the survey,” the SWS said.

The SWS terminology for net trust ratings are as follows:

 +70 and above, “excellent”
+50 to +69, “very good”
 +30 to +49, “good”
 +10 to +29, “moderate”

 -10 to -29, “poor”
 -30 to -49, “bad” 
-50 to -69, “very bad”
-70 and below, “execrable.”

China’s net trust rating rose from poor to neutral at +7 (38 percent much trust, 31 percent little trust) last December, up by 20 points from the -13 in September.

Filipina Gets Two-Year Prison Sentence for Stealing $100,000 from US Base

A Filipina was sentenced to two years in prison by a United States federal court for stealing nearly $100,000 from a US Naval base in Japan in 2015. 60-year old Cynthia Lopez Creseni pleaded guilty to theft of public money in a court Kansas City last August of 2017. She stole $99,068 from the Morale Welfare and Recreation Center at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan.    Working as lead cashier in the recreation center, it was Creseni who initially reported $112,300 missing from a safe after she returned from a vacation in the United States. Shortly afterward, she fled to the Philippines, where she is a citizen.    Creseni entered the United States in July 2015 and overstayed her USA visitor visa. She was arrested in January 2017 in Overland Park, Kansas. No information is given about how she got her visitor visa from the US.  Prior to the theft, Creseni had worked in various jobs at Yokosuka Naval Base since 2000. She was living in Japan on a civilian visa at the time of the incident.    An interview by an NCIS special agent revealed that Creseni first stole $1,000 to help a sick relative in the Philippines. Creseni stated that she continued to take money over the course of six months, and falsified audit documents that made the money appear as if it were accounted for during official audits.    She spent the money on family members, plane tickets and an apartment in Yokosuka, Japan. It is not known if she spent some of the stolen money for her legal fees.    Sponsored Links  Creseni claims that she kept a false identity in Japan hoping to marry a Japanese citizen. She was already married in the Philippines. Creseni said her actual name is Blesilda de Guzman Fernando, though that has not been verified.    {OR INSERT ANOTHER 3-5 IMAGES OR VIDEO HERE}   Apart from her conviction of two years, Creseni is facing deportation to the Philippines after serving her full sentence.    source: NavyTimes, Stripes, Seattle Times

OFWs In U.S., Get Ready For "Bombogenesis"— DFA


Advertisements





The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) advised Filipinos in Northeastern part of United States to prepare and be vigilant as a strong snowstorm "is expected to bring hurricane-force winter winds" and "6 to 12 inches of snow" in at least 8 states.

About 340,000 Filipinos living in the states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut may be affected by the "bombogenesis," the DFA said.

"Bombogenesis," also known as a "bomb cyclone," occurs when a storm's barometric pressure drops by 24 millibars in 24 hours, greatly strengthening the winter storm.

"Filipinos in the affected areas are advised to closely monitor weather reports and to heed instructions of local authorities," Cayetano said.

Philippine Consul General in New York Maria Theresa Dizon-De Vega said volunteers under the Consulate General's Warden System have been alerted to monitor weather conditions and to report any emergencies to the mission.

Meanwhile,

A magnitude 4.5 earthquake shook up the San Francisco Bay Area early Thursday.


It was felt throughout the region, and could be felt for perhaps five to 10 seconds. Near the San Francisco International Airport, several jolts could be felt.



The epicenter of the earthquake was recorded along the Oakland-Berkeley border, just north of the Claremont Hotel. It is in the area of the Hayward fault, one of the most feared in the Bay Area, which could produce a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake and is directly underneath heavily populated areas.

San Francisco's emergency managers said all city facilities and infrastructure would be inspected Thursday, though there were no initial reports of damage or injuries.

Qatar is Buying 72 F-15 or $21B Worth of Fighter Jets From the US


Days after US Donald Trump accused them of allegedly supporting terrorism, Qatar has signed a $12 billion contract to buy F-15 war jets from the United States according to the reports by the defense ministry.   Apparently, the contract was signed in a meeting between US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Qatari Minister of State for Defense Affairs Khalid al-Attiyah according to the source as reported by Reuters. Bloomberg news said that the deal is set for a total of 36 fighter jets  produced by a Boeing subsidiary Mc Donnell Douglas.   An unnamed Qatari official was quoted as saying the US-Qatar relationships are "deep-rooted".   In November, the US approved the possible sale of 72 units F-15QA war jets to Qatar amounting to $21.1 billion. The deal come only weeks after a $110 billion arms deal was made between US and saudi Arabia, which the White House describes as the biggest in history.  Trump earlier made a remark that Qatar has “historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level.” It was after the neighboring GCC countries severed ties with Doha.  As Kuwait tries to bridge the row between qatar and concerned Arab brothers, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan strongly back Qatar, dubbing the Saudi-led measures "inhumane and against Islamic values".  Qatar, an important exporter of natural gas, is a known American ally in the Middle East. It also hosts the largest US military base in the region. In fact, amid the growing tension between Qatar and other gulf states,  two combat US Navy ships have sailed into Doha for joint drills with the Qatari navy according to the report.

Overseas Workers Welfare Organization (OWWA)  Administrator hans leo Cacdac has disclosed that OWWA board of trustees  has recently approved a resolution allotting financial aid for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), who were affected by the ongoing clash between the government forces and the Maute terror group in Marawi City.   The approved financial aid amounting to P100 million will be distributed by the agency to the affected OFW families.     According to Admin Hans Cacdac, the calamity component involves cash assistance of P3,000 for active members and P1,000 members who are not active.   OWWA Region 10 office is already in the process of determining the number of  qualified beneficiaries for the cash assistance.     “Our Region 10 director is on the ground in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, determining the amount to be given to the beneficiaries. Distribution will happen in the coming week,” Cacdac said.   The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), for its part,  earlier said that it will provide livelihood aid to  the displaced workers due to the crisis.  Marawi residents, including OFW families had voluntarily evacuated their homes in area since last week due to the rising tension. Most of them went to the nearby areas like Iligan and Cagayan de Oro City.  Their villages had been under Maute terror and they need to be somewhere safe.  President  Rodrigo Duterte already declared martial law in  the entire Mindanao  ordering the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) to intensify counter offensives against the ISIS-inspired group.  Meanwhile, Department of Social Welfare and Development opened various evacuation centers in Mindanao following the exodus of the residents in Marawi City. According to DSWD Sec. Judy Taguiwalo, they have  food packs and non-food items on standby for distribution for affected residents from Marawi City.  DSWD assures to keep the safety of every residents in the area especially the women, children and the elderly.
