(Topic: Both US and PHL Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude)

I found the article blaming both the US and Philippine governments to be the most rational and succinct explanation of this bizarre episode.

The truth is our manhood is under threat and majority of Philippine society and our generation have become so morally corrupt. Our media openly condones and glamorize homosexual behavior. Because they are commercially profitable. We even look to them as role models for our children. No one can question them because they have became politically connected and strong. All of us who criticize them are immediately branded as bigots. As a nation we need to reflect what we have become and what we want our children and future country to be.

This case is really nothing more than just another run-of-the-mill crime of passion. The only difference is that the perp is a an American and a marine at that--- thereby dragging VFA into the mix. Truth to be told-- I blame the marine for being naively stupid and losing his temper in a foreign land! I blame the US Marines for not cautioning their "boys" that they represent their country-- and therefore should behave when they are in a foreign land. If this happened in Japan or other countries with far more national self-respect and dignity--- a riot in the street would have ensued! Lucky it happened in a country where Americans can't do wrong!

To [someone] who said, "There is no law stopping Jeffrey Laude from using the name "Jennifer" even without paperwork as long as it's not for fraudulent use". My 2 cents: But he was using the name Jeninifer to misrepresent himself as a woman! Is that not fraudulent enough? Imagine making men believe they would be having a good time with a sexy woman for a price, when all the time he knew he was a man. If that is not fraud I don't know what is. Also, he was using the name Jennifer to transact business in prostitution, a crime under PHL law. Those are at least 2 counts against him.

Bakit ang mga protesters ay namimili ng taong ipinaglalaban? Tingin ko mga hypocrites at mga bayaran sila. Kapag laban sa US, sobrang mabilis magprotest... magkano kaya? Bakit galit sila sa US samantalang sila na nga nakakatulong sa Pilipinas? Maraming Pilipinong nasa US, nagtatrabaho at doon na naninirahan. Tumutulong kung may kalamidad at lalo na sa kasalukuyan na tinuturuan ang ating mga sundalo. Yang mga nagpoprotest ay hindi fair. Bakit hindi sila magprotest ng araw-araw laban sa China? kay Binay? sa Custom?. Masyadong silang pasikat pero hindi lubos na makatwiran.

Look, there are thousands of foreign tourists with various shades of sexual persuasions, but they try to be brutally honest and never defraud their intended catch. In this calling, honesty must be the best policy, after all, the truth shall make them free and not end in the grave. Nature never lies, and so are tourists. Pinas sex trade must be free from pretenders.

The extreme focus of the media on Jennifer's case raised the discussion and curiosity level beyond what it should be be, creating collateral and sometimes extraneous issues. It won't serve the victim's interest if people will zero in uncompromisingly, their belief that her rights have been violated when circumstance and evidence might prove otherwise. Nor does it help the already marginalized group in our society if we add politics in the mix.

[Someone]: I don't know what defense lawyers of Pemberton will put up. As a non-lawyer being deceived by another person gay or straight guy is not a good reason to kill someone. The odds are quite overwhelming against this man. The use of superior force and prejudice on sexual orientation could all be used against PFC Joseph Scott Pemberton. Insanity defense? Laude drugged him? I doubt it!

As a Filipino, here is the very embarrassing and nasty scenario___ As much as I am sad for him but This 27 yr old man (Jeffrey Laude) posing as a woman (who has already a German boyfriend) wanted to trick (victimize and or make money from the_ "19 year old" young American marine.. Now some people want our country being threatened by China to cut ties with US who we need to stop China's bullying.. Then I read in the news that the Same people are criticizing Phil. president for not attending the wake of this man Jeffrey Laude .!!!!.Do you want him and our country to be the laughing stock internationally?!

Deo - I read you - "1/2 hour is long enough to allegedly kill Laude but too short for "sex," if you will ask me. I can just imagine there was violence right away as soon as Pemberton grasped the crouch of Laude and found something Pemberton did not expect" Just the same- homicide was committed and the victim being a transgender is not an excuse for it. So what I am interested to see is how this will be resolved. Pemberton getting away scotch -free (like Smith) back to the USA- is a possibility hard to contemplate! If he does--Filipinos should stop pretending that they have sovereignty in their supposedly "independent" country!

In the news: "Majority Backs PNOYs [Aquino] Plan Not To Attend Laude's Wake". Yes, why are the family and associates of Laude obligating Aquino to attend/visit the the wake? Or want him to be involved in the attempted break-in in the Camp where Pemberton is detained? After all there are paid "makikiramay" in the case of the wake if they are not satisfied with Binay and authority who are in charged of the Camp. Aquino has better things to do.

[Someone]: I don't think there is such a thing called HATE CRIME in the Philippines. There is however a CRIME of TOLERANCE. The country tolerates plunderers, dim-witted senators, vote buying activities, common-law wives and even concubines ( kabits, kalaguyos). The country is very friendly with gay people as long as they don't wear women's clothing, bras, or thong in public and remain as closet queens. Some enterprising businessmen even run Miss GAY Philippines Beauty Pageant. There are dating Gay Sites. The criminal elements consider gays as easy targets for they don't offer even token resistance.

The Laude case was murder committed by a foreigner on foreign soil against a local. It does not matter whether the assailant was a military man or a civilian. It does not matter also whether the victim was a woman or a man. But if this were a hate crime, then it is something else and more to it.

Re: Headline: "Palace decided the Aquino III not attend the wake of Jeffrey Laude"..You can't expect the president to do that.. he has only a certain number of hours to fulfill his duties as Chief Executive.. If he attends those kinds of gathering every time someone is killed, the President won't have time to do the business of governing. That's the reason he has so many executive assistants. That is their duty to represent the President is some functions but all functions a person can only do so many things

Yung German na nagtawid bakod, hindi kelangan ang sorry niya sa ating batas. Naging mayabang sya at itinulak pa ang guard. Dapat lahat ng mga lumabag ay may penalty para madisiplina at hindi gayahin ng kung sino man ang ganoon kayabangan. Dumating ba sya ng pagkamatay na ni Laude? o before?. If before, malay natin siya pala killer dahil nabuking niyang may iba palang katalik. Galit sa kaliwete. Kapag bakla gf malamang may pagkabakla rin bf. Tingnan nyo inginudngod sa inidoro at parang sinabing.. huhh maldita ka...!

Whoever uses being cheated or being lied to as a reason to extinguish the life of someone has no regard for human life. Being physically assaulted or killed because of sexual orientation is a hate crime whose degree of punishment is different from ordinary criminal offense particularly if it resulted in the death of a transgender as in the case of Laude.

The fact is nobody is saying "mabuti nga sa kanya!" to Laude in this forum. Killing, is a killing, is a killing, transgender, bakla, sioke, lesbian man siya, tao din siya and nobody has the right to take the life of somebody how offensive he/she might be. What we are saying is he can not be blameless for the tragedy that cost him his life. If this had happened before then they never learn. Pinoys generally tolerate the outrageoussness of bakla and lesbians. The few who hates them "puwede nating batukan".

DEPORTED? This is what Ms. DeLima said about the German boyfriend of the slain Transgender. The guy shoved a soldier in the camp and showed a lot of emotion, which looked like disrespect of the PHL and the Filipinos. The German had since apologized. My Take: Since the guy already apologized and no one got injured except a little Filipino pride I believe they should just drop it and allow this guy to stay for as many days as it takes to mourn his departed. Filipinos are known for their hospitality and gentleness. Who knows, this German may even find a new "love" in Angeles or Herran. Then he would not have to grieve so much. Also, DeLima is single and available. So why not?

Tourists. The Philippines could get rid of the red light districts but it brings in a lot of foreign currency in a country with a high poverty rate. The VFA protects the US serviceman or woman who are accused of a crime in a very corrupt country.

There are double standards applied to gays, lesbians and transgender (transexual). The general population has a more negative attitude towards transgender, gays and lesbians. Even in the military, the lesbians (tomboys to some) are treated positively by men than gays. During the time of Deo it was tough for a gay person to come out of the closet. Now he could. Transgender is a medical condition known as GENETIC DYSPHORIA (a person thinks he is a girl trapped in the body of a boy). Deo thinks he is a honcho and a macho man!

You said [someone] that "Prostitution is listed among the crimes some refer to as victimless or consensual crimes.." If the prostitute with AIDS infected her customer, the latter is the victim. Prostitution is never consensual because the prostitute will never consent to sex without money (unless the prostitute fell head over heels or smitten by the looks of her client like [someone] - who is a dead ringer for Cantinplas)

LUMA ANG BUCKINGHAM. That's the Hacienda Binay. It's got a Japanese Arched bridge crossing over a man made lagoon, a mini Arch de Triumph, a British garden, etc. The only thing Filipino about it is the MONEY used for this wasteful, disgusting consumption in the midst of barbaric poverty. This Hacienda alone is enough to hang Binay. Which is why that Chinese front man of his is trying to take the heat and distract people from Binay's plunder. This Hacienda was "acquired" by Binay as a Mayor of Makati. Imagine what he will "acquire" if he becomes President.

MALIGNO. There's talk that Binay's side will launch a demolition job on among others, Roxas. They call it Oplan Maligno. I know nothing of politics or strategies but I believe this is the first serious mistake of Binay. Why would he try to mess up Roxas when nobody is thinking of Roxas anyway? He is a very unattractive candidate better off ignored. By being a target Roxas would gain exposure and perhaps, sympathy. He will be in the news and talked about by people. And before they know it he has become a serious contender. This is a lose-lose situation for Binay. Pero mabuti nga. Para lalong matalo. Si Binay.

And once convicted he could be divested of his PHL citizenship. The country is SICK of Chinese scammers like this. Mga PasangCruz sa bayan. Kudos to Cayetano. He maybe acting with political motivations but just the same, a lot of important revelations about Binay are coming out. And that is good.

RE: Headline.. "There is no point in castigating Binay". From Aquino III...Guess who is quiet . .Sec of Justice De Lima I suppose will suddenly keep her mouth shut and stop her investigation...It is the Filipino way..There is selective Justice. So my prediction of Gen. Purisima and Binay is completely wrong. Binay would stay in the Cabinet..Notwithstanding his unexplained wealth. Properties not included in SALN or income tax returns. If that continues Binay will be the next President. He would pardon the 3 senators from his party if they are convicted. And corruption continues indefinitely.

If Binay can afford to buy witnesses for Ph10M per non-appearance it only proves how hard to beat he is when 2016 comes around. He really intends to go to town with bagfuls of money and buy votes. And chances are, he WILL succeed and get elected! Because this is the PHL. Around here votes are the cheapest commodity a crooked politician could buy. Decent Filipinos must stop this man right now. They must not wait for 2016. They should not even give him a chance to run. If possible tie him up with Plunder Cases. That way people will think of him as a Plunderer, not a politician.

There you go, Trillanes being criticized for saying "kulay mahirap". This is the problem with untrained would be debaters. Their emotions would pull them down. Although honestly he is correct because no one could deny among Filipinos that kung maypagka meztiso ka generally the impression is that you are well to do but if you are dark complexioned that you are most probably poor. This might be true but Trillanes should not have said that because it has given weapon to Binay camp to pounce on despite that Trillanes's beginnings is poorer than Trillanes's. That is why it is advisable that Cayetano face Binay instead of Trillanes.

News Report: Filipino Maids abused and mistreated in Arabia. As a long time resident of the USA I find this news REVOLTING. Not just the unfairness and injustice of it all. But also man's inhumanity to his fellow man. But is anyone saying a word in the PHL? Is anyone complaining? Where is Binay and what is he doing about this? Where are all those noisy communists. These maltreatment of Filipino citizens in foreign countries should transcend political differences in the PHL. Filipinos should close ranks and protect their citizens working abroad, particularly domestic helpers. That probably sounds naive but that's just how I feel.

Si Binay bilang isang lawyer, alam niya ang tamang gagawin para hindi siya mabuking sa kalokohan. Oo nga't nagnanakaw sya, may mga pakana o palusot sya na alam niyang walang sabit. Kung noon yong napabalita sa Makati na mga ghost employees ay nalusutan din nya, yan pa kayang may mga kasabwat. Pero, ewan lang din natin. Ang BIR na lng pag-asa kung nagbabayad sila ng tamang buwis.

Binay-Tiu Partnership. That chinaman Antonio Tiu is obfuscating the investigation against his partner Binay. While tens of millions of Filipinos are mired in poverty this Chinese is on the make for years courtesy of & protected by Binay. This shows that Binay would sell out to any foreigner if it would benefit him financially. If Binay becomes President we can assume he would enter into a secret deal with China to give it what it wants, just like Arroyo. Binay therefore is not just a thief & plunderer. He is also a traitor. Filipinos should realize that. This Tiu may have PHL citizenship but to me he is still a foreigner. His citizenship is for convenience. He is in it for the money. Just like all the other Tai Pans in the country. Period!

The more I see what Binay is doing to counter the negatives about him the more I believe he is just a run of the mill candidate with a lot of money. At first I thought he got this far by being smart and cunning like Marcos. I was wrong. A Marcos he is not. His one and only political weapon is vote buying. He is not even feared by his subordinates. His reaction to pressure is to leave the handling of it to his UNA Partymates. Well, I have news for him. His UNA allies are a bunch of not only ugly, but repulsive people. Look at Toby Tiangco. "Would you buy a used car from this guy?" In grade school I had a classmate that looked like Tiangco. We called him ASWANG.

Even assuming he is right on all those complaints of his, what's that got to do with the overpricing and Hacienda Binay he is being accused of. INI-IBA ANG USAPAN! If he is innocent of the charges all he has to do is show up in the Senate and answer questions. Why won't he do that?

Re: Aquino III-- After the meeting with the Vice-Pres. the feeling is that the Pnoy would retain the Vice-president in his Cabinet notwithstanding the revelations of 3 witnesses who were part of the Binay Admin when he was Mayor of Makati. the Pnoy's inaction against the Vice president might be misinterpreted by most Filipinos who want reform as a change of heart of the Daang matuwid. If Binay is elected President it shows that there has been no change in the politics. it is business as usual. Some reform minded military might just come out of nowhere and stop the continuous plunder of government funds.

[Someone said] - "Shares of stocks are not ask by Government of Canada but the gains/losses in your investments when you file income tax returns. " TOTALLY WRONG! When filing your income tax in Canada- whether for your Capital Gain or Loss-- you have to submit Schedule 3- wherein you have to list the number of shares , the name of the corporation, type of shares (common or preferred) and when you purchased it. You have to show your cost of acquisition ( adjusted cost base) and proceed of disposition. This has to be accompanied by form T-4037 from your broker outlining the transaction as supporting documentation. You are a Canadian-- better talk to your CRA regional office if you are filing the wrong information in your tax declaration!!

It is stupidity not to enforce and follow the law. Blame the responsible official/s of the Philippine Government for not adhering to the provisions of the law. To run for public office, there are REQUISITES to follow. If you're my opponent in politics running for Governor and you are a convicted felon, why would I say the obvious before voters? I would rather have a protective vest and security personnel with me. That would be the rational approach.

We were of the impression, all the while, that the EDSA I Revolution will transform the nation into a real political reformation but it did not. In fact, it created a more fertile ground where corruption grew much faster and deeper. I honestly put the blame squarely on Cory Aquino for not planting the seed of reform; instead she opted for reconciliation. The son took her place with the intention of creating a change in the political behavior of government officials by his :"tuwid na daan" (righteous path). The only achievement was to strip Corona of his judicial robe with no prison term.

comment 1/2 : The cry of the public about the unexplained wealth of his PNP chief, the Binay case, the traffic congestion, the long lines in MRT, etc were not directly handled by him but by subalterns. Two more years are not enough to grow another spine!

What is driving this economy is not the government policies but the risk-taking actions of the private sector. Despite the fact that the housing bubble is imminent, the private sector continue to build high rise condominiums ignoring environmental concerns , demand for electricity and water supply, sanitation, congestion, etc. To many shrewd businessmen, corruption is a necessary evil and an economic opportunity that should never be ignored or wasted. The Chinese are aware of that and they practice that daily in their lives.

Because of all the inhuman abuse Filipino domestic helpers suffer in the Arab lands I cannot help but be biased against anyone who looks like an Arab here in the US. In the supermarkets, malls, public places, as soon as I see them I avoid them. Rednecks around here call them names behind their backs and somehow I do not feel offended. Poverty is such a curse. Life is so unfair. How can Muslim murderers be given the gift of oil which they use to oppress their fellow human beings? I just wonder.

[Someone], what are you trying to insinuate by making up a perverted story of Dr. Rosita Canto marrying a "Chekwa" with the last name Tan? You must have been a pervert, unlike me who is still a virgin at the age of 69!

The more I read of Filipinos being abused in the Arab lands the more I hate the greedy, dirty politicians like Arroyo, Enrile, et al, Binay and those artistas. But that's just me. I don't know if my Filipino compatriots feel the same thing. In my time Filipinos where tops in education & sophistication. There was no such thing as working in those places as housemaids, much less being abused. Perhaps Filipinos could send the daughters of those corrupt plunderers to work as maids for Arabs. That would really be poetic justice.

Death of Filipino Transgender 'Jennifer' Laude Was Totally Preventable

The evening for the young US Marine and his Filipino date "Jennifer" began at the Ambyanz Disco Bar in Subic Bay, Olongapo and ended shortly before midnight at the Celzone Lodge where "Jennifer's" lifeless body was found leaning against the toilet bowl. Jennifer, it turns out was actually not originally a "she" but a "he." A Filipino transgender, Jeffrey Laude, 26, began calling himself "Jennifer" after medical procedures made him look more female than male. Published 10/14/2014


Sorry Mr. President But PNP Chief Alan Purisima Has to Go

What’s with Philippine civil servants these days? It seems that you can stick all their pictures on a wall; throw a dart; and whoever’s photo it land on, that person can be successfully prosecuted for graft. It is unbelievable how pervasive and widespread corruption has become. We go from one corruption scandal to the next and there seems to be no end in sight. Published 10/07/2014
Tear Down the Torre de Manila Building Being Built Behind the Rizal Monument?

According to the developer’s website, “Torre de Manila, DMCI Homes’ newest one-tower condominium, is an exclusive residential community right in the heart of the city.” As of this writing, the 49-story edifice is about halfway complete. But as it continues to rise, so too do the howls of protest from an eclectic collection of groups and individuals who want it torn down. Why? Torre de Manila will permanently mar the skyline behind the Rizal Monument. Published 10/01/2014
How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day

On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac, Ilocos Norte became the despotic dictator for over a decade. Published 09/23/2014
Jejomar Binay Should Never Become President of the Philippines

In our July 25th editorial we asked if Vice President Jejomar Binay should be the next president of the Philippines. In this editorial we arrive at the definitive conclusion that that Binay should not be elected president. Since our last editorial, more witnesses have come forward with more allegations against the embattled Vice President. But our decision not to support Binay’s presidential bid is based on irrefutable public acts that in our opinion disqualify him from the presidency. Published 09/16/2014
Will Pacman be China’s Pitchman?

The news was officially announced by China Central Television (CCTV) in Beijing on August 25: Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, the “national fist” of the Philippines and the winner of eight world boxing titles, signed an agreement with the Chinese government “to establish a string of boxing academies” all over China with the aim of helping to “grow the sport in China and provide opportunities for young people to take part."

Napoles Prays 2,000 Rosaries a Day, So Does She Get a Free Pass to Heaven?

After leaving her August 15th bail hearing at the Sandiganbayan, Janet Lim Napoles showed the media the marble rosary she personally received from recently canonized Saint Pope John Paul II. Her lawyer Stephen David later disclosed to media that Napoles prays 2,000 rosaries a day. Given that a day has only 24 hours or 1,440 minutes, Napoles would have to complete an entire rosary in less than a minute praying non-stop for an entire day…every day. Atty. David also pointed out that Napoles paid for the schooling of at least 200 priests and helped construct many Catholic churches. Published 08/30/2014
