KEEP VFA ALIVE! Only the USA provides support, both financial and military, to the Philippines. Can you name other countries that WILL support the Philippines if you get rid of VFA? This gay guy whose career was to rob foreigners risked his own life for all the wrong choices he made. What if Pemberton was not an American? What if he were Canadian, or British, or Arab? Are you going to ask POEA to bring all the OFWs back home? Government should NOT decide for the country's future based on ONE person who was killed while doing illegal activities to begin with. WAKE UP FILIPINOS!!! Stop being stupid!

Reportedly, the US custody of accused in EDCA is true in 100 other agreements, the US signed with other countries, as a privilege or to protect of it's own citizens. PH's response to the custody situation may happen in other countries too, but after 400 + years of suffering under foreign colonialism and domination, (which caused most problems in PH today from rampant corruption, over-population to a weak military ), it maybe understandable to see how Filipinos are venting their frustrations for some injustices. But deep in their heart, most Filipinos would not break the strong alliance between the US and PH, because PH, in it's rise from the ashes, would still need the protection and help of it's strongest ally, the US.

Pemberton is fully protected under the Visiting Forces Agreement & under the custody of the Joint U.S. Military Assistance Group (JUSMAG) in Camp Aguinaldo Compound with U.S. Military Police guards (MCIS) entitled full jurisdiction over the accused serviceman. The U.S. gov't will not blink an eye to give the accused the full extent & protection of this existing law & process. It takes time to follow this procedure between prosecution & defence. To others it might appear as 'delaying tactics' but it's the process that's being followed here. Expect reviews, counter arguments, reconsiderations, further studies, & other legal mumbo-jumbos in this case. This is how he Phil Justice & the VFA works. If I were the Laude family, perhaps I'll go for a civil suit & sue them for compensation.

There indeed is a love and hate relationship between USA and the Philippines but that is not unusual because it happens even to the best of families. Some common terms aptly described this type of relation; the ugly Americans, the mendicant Pinoys, strange bedfellows, etc. Despite our independence from U.S.A. in 1946 we have not totally disassociated ourselves from basking in the shade that this powerful country can now and then provide. However, maintaining relation or asking for help do not necessarily mean foregoing sovereignty or losing one's self-respect.

Pina-alis ng Pinas ang mga kano, ngayong may problema sa China ..gusto ninyo protection against sa China. Nagmalaki ang Pinoy, ngayon ano ba ang benefit ng wala na ang base...naalis ba ang prostitution, kaya ba ng AFP na isecure ang territory ng Pinas. Yung mga politician lang ang yumaman at nakinabang ng mga base. Sabi nga nila THE PRICE OF FREEDOM..sa Pinas it means tuloy pa rin ang corruption. Mapagmalaki kasi tayo kaya pasensiya tayo.

The deceit that the victim practiced on his male clients was monumentally humiliating for a man. He passed himself off as a woman to an overly eager male client. We can second guess the consequences of the revelation all we want. But the truth is we never can tell. It should be treated as such. A homicide/murder. Bring the accused to court to face justice. As long as he shows up in court & the trial proceeds why would the question of his custody matter? The PHL has bigger problems & concerns than who gets custody of the accused in a gay sex gone deadly. Filipinos should not pay attention to the WRONG details.

Agreement or none, Filipinos can't get everything they want from the US. And as we have seen before, Americans are not scared being banished from the Islands either. They have other places in the Pacific rim where they can stage their mighty armaments of war should it become necessary. And these are the very reasons why they can dictate their end of the bargain on others. Filipinos must cease being ambivalent in their position in this relations and make up their mind when they say "Yankees go home" they should add "Don't ever come back again." Or shut up and stick to what was agreed upon.

The problem is a feeling of mistrust on both sides. Permitting an American, a young soldier at that, to be incarcerated inside a Filipino jail is likened to leaving him in a Mexican slammer where northern inmates are fair game for vicious prison guards. The US military is known to treat its erring service members with a slap on the wrist or directing commanders to issue PCS orders for personnel committing demoralizing incidents on foreign soil. You got the picture.

By now the Americans must be used to the behavior the Filipinos are showing in cases like this. In the past there were questions of custody and all sorts of sound & fury were heard. Did the PHL ever uphold their so-called sovereign rights? It ended all the same. The US prevailed. And even assuming the PHL prevails in the custody issue do we really think Pemberton will spend time in a PHL jail? Believe me before we are even done arguing MAG-KA-KABAYARAN na yan. AREGLO, the all purpose justice solution in the PHL.

HSSomeone: This Laude- Pemberton case or incident is the result of a media hype. One incident could not destroy the remaining 99 parts of the long years of military and economic relations between both countries. We were in this situation before. The friendship is there. The bond is there. Time was our witness.

Re "Pemberton Asked Court To Suspend Trial" and charged him with HOMICIDE in stead of MURDER. Although, I remember it will, ACCIDENTAL killing in Pinas is HOMICIDE (For example in tagalog parlance "nakasagasa O nasagasaan ng auto or dyip") so the accused were charged with "HOMICIDE through reckless imprudence". Is this an strategy of Pemberton defense to have him charge with HOMICIDE "para lumabo ang kaso vs. Pemberton"?. Since there was NO APPARENT PLAN of Pemberton to kill Laude when they check-in at the hotel, so the killing "must be accidental, therefore just "HOMICIDE through reckless imprudence". But by what "accident" in the hotel caused by recklessness of Pemberton? Di ba malabo?

IMAGINE what China is thinking about all this! They must be thinking, "These Filipinos are so easy to distract. No sweat!" China can just focus itself on the construction of their airfield & other surrounding buildings. Then they can concentrate on the next islands the will occupy. Why not? The PHL is so BUSY ARGUING with its ONLY ally. In short the PHL cannot even launch any military defense of their land, even if it has the tools. Why? Because Filipinos just love to argue! They say Basketball is the National sport in the PHL? Wrong! It's arguing. Blah, blah, blah, since politics was introduced to them.

In my preceding entries, even Kindergarteners of Law School can anticipate "acquittal" for Pemberton. The prosecution will not dare charged him with MURDER. The prosecution will be "matotorite" proving Pemberton planned (one prerequisite requirement of MURDER) to kill Laude. Neither they will charge Pemberton with HOMICIDE (if Pinas Legal Jurisprudence distinguishes MURDER and HOMICIDE) because the prosecution will have to "create" a scenario of ACCIDENT. "What accident are you talking about Willis?" Phram "Different Strokes, ha". Maboboteng usapan is the best for the prosecution and the Laudes.

AGAIN THE CAVEAT. While we have a healthy discussion about this Pemberton case I would like to repeat the alert I made about the focus we should give to a bigger issue. The candidacy of Binay. This subject is a real threat to the PHL, more than China. To those of us commenting on Binay's crimes, we should not let up, on the assumption that a lot of Filipinos are reading our comments. It would be a shame if a case of prostitution overshadows & blows over the crimes of a crook who has a real possible chance to be President.

The Pemberton case should never be used as an acid test to determine if USA's strongest ally in Asia will endure or injure. We have been in this situation prior to the abrogation of the lease agreement involving CAB and Subic. We saw rape cases and abandoned children of US servicemen in Clark and Subic when these bases closed. Did these children claim citizenship rights? Because of Al Quaeda, we welcomed US forces again through the VFA. With this threat from China, we say to the US soldiers:"stay with us and sleep over." What kind of relationship does the government want? Convenience for convenience sake? A FAIR-WEATHER FRIEND? Respond [someone] . Say something.

To the rhetorical question if Filipinos want America on their side or not, is a dumb question. The Pemberton case is not enough reason for Filipinos to "unfriend" America. The term unfriend is being used in Facebook, if you are not familiar. Friendship is tested in many ways. Friends resolve differences; enemies tear each other apart. Perhaps if we become an Islamic state, which is unlikely to happen, we become an enemy of the USA. Please stop repeating the same rhetorical question. AMERICANS and PINOYS are BFFs .

The matter of custody of Pemberton is well stated in the VFA agreement ( article V). The Philippine Government consented that US could seek custody of Pemberton if they do request. Was the consent of Philippine government implied ? If it were, what is the big fuss? It is not even worth discussing it and hitting the keyboard.

In the US, State Troopers or cops in police cars could stop anyone without even explaining to the motorist why. That is common knowledge. If the driver was asked some IDs or driver's license he has to comply. Arguing with the cop would just make matters worst. A charge of resisting arrest comes easily. Acting suspiciously or driving erratically is enough reason more than exceeding the posted speed limits to be pulled over. Cops act on instinct. For heavens sake [someone] you are insulting our intelligence!

The report of an officer selling T- shirt " Breathe easy... " in Bend Indiana as relayed by HMS, is another example of pouring gasoline into the fire. This only widens the racial divide between the black communities and the whites. It increases the perception of many about the lack of or absence of human sensitivity of whites on colored people. Blacks were once slaves but not any more. Many are still unable to get past through that in our history and it is sad. 600,000 people died in the US Civil War because of slavery, hatred for the North and Lincoln, and more.

[Someone]: Deaths caused by a white guy on a black guy is always racial. It ignites pent-up feelings among the black communities. The object of contempt however is the action of a grand jury in the Brown case not to indict the police officer on false testimony from witness number 40 and when the prosecutor is white. In the protests that followed, whites joined the blacks to express their anger.The greater issue is whether the criminal justice system works with the black community or not.

The Left always lie. We should know that by now. The leftist movement thrives on intrigues and conspiracy theories. They like to play the oppressed underdog and stir up emotions and convert them into anger and hate... and since the media thrives on controversies because money seems to follow this lead, The media practically sides with the left. Are all leftists like this? Of course not. But you can a great number of them are... Perhaps even the majority. They promote big government bureaucracy, they like to stir up envy, anger and hate, they play the race card, they like to play class envy and jealousy. That will always be the left and I don't care if I am accused of sweeping generalization.

Is it illegal to swear, mouthing off, flipping off and saying "go screw yourself" to a cop ? Evidently it is rude. The answer is no and yes. It is no because that is an exercise of free speech. It is a criticism and not a crime. You could not be arrested for " contempt of cop." But you could be busted for profanity in a public place and disturbing the peace. It is best to zip your mouth. In the real world it is the cop's word against yours (unless you have a video to prove it)

[Someone] said, "The Ferguson did not prove that the cop who shot Brown had his life in jeopardy". Here's the thing. Whatever the real situation was is irrelevant. What the law recognizes to sustain self-defense is that the Accused BELIEVED HIMSELF TO BE IN IMMEDIATE DANGER OF HARM that only superior force could stop. When the victim started pummeling him with blows & tried to grab his revolver the cop panicked fearing his life to be in immediate danger. This is the cop's State of Mind at that precise moment, which is why his self-defense was upheld by the grand jury. That Brown was unarmed was revealed only after the fact. The way he attacked and charged the cop did not leave time for the cop to think whether Brown was armed or not.

The Leftist approach in their propaganda is to point out the United States as the root cause of all the inconsistencies, imbalance and oppression of the globally marginalized. They propagate the US conducts imperialism through capitalism and wealth creation, an idea which doesn't sell even to a lot of leftists themselves. So their prime objective is to detach the local political system from the influences of the United States by accusing the latter as imperialists. What they refuse to admit is that the US has a balancing role the world cannot deny. If Filipinos did not benefit from that leadership, the Philippines would have been invaded by China a long time ago which is another fact they refuse to admit. The Left is a group that conducts its business through lies and deceit.

The laws of physics state that " for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction" Quite very recently two of New York's finest were assassinated in Brooklyn. The killer was avenging the deaths of Brown and Garner. The police had blood in their hands and they better wash their hands. The police better hold courtesy, professionalism and respect to the highest standards. They should serve as better models to the community.

You get frustrated arguing with a person who can't understand the wisdom of the quote: " to succeed in life you need ignorance and confidence." If one stops learning he becomes ignorant. Ignorance is an outcome of terrible education. Better products and discoveries in science become realities because of ignorance. A man who stops learning after high school could be ignorant in a lot of things around him. He is stacked with the past and obsolete knowledge. His social and income mobilities are in jeopardy.

To think that science and the belief of Catholics (God and religion) are entwined as [someone] thinks, is insane. Science and Religion (from the Catholics point of view) have 360 degree of separation. Religion believes in creation; science on evolution and Bing Bang Theory. Religion uses a book called the BIBLE. Science uses a science book with theories and experimental results. In life there are men of faith and men of science. There are dummies and smarties too.

HMSomeone: A much better analogy or comparison is between Satanic Verses and the Interview. In the former , the Ayatollah of Iran issued a fatwa to kill the publisher and those who will sell the book. None has ever been killed. An empty threat thus far. In the Interview , the threat was issued by an unknown hacker who call themselves as guardians of peace (GOP) against Sony Corporation if the latter releases the movie for showing this Christmas to some theaters. The threat has something to do with sensitive information about the company and its employees. NO FOREIGN COUNTRY COULD DEMAND FROM ANOTHER SOVEREIGN COUNTRY SUPPRESSION OF THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH OR CENSORSHIP.

Let me tell you something about the left. Particularly the leftist in the Philippines. This movement claims it is for justice But! they have their own definition and execution for the term. Observe them and one will notice they conduct their business by way of mob rule. Ask them if they believe in LIBERTY and FREEDOM and they will avoid the subject. They will always site contradictions in the policies of the government and they will accuse the government of not being pro-poor and pro-people. They act so because of one thing, overthrow free-market capitalism.

It is about time the Left is exposed to the public. It is about time the public make their disapproval of the leftist movement be heard loudly. The left has so much delayed if not damaged the political psyche of the country. We cannot even conduct practical politics of measures without the left interfering with their emotional propaganda. I appreciate check and balance in the system but what i hate about the left is their political agenda at the expense of exploiting the laborers and peasants to their cause.

To the Estrada worshipper from Ontario: How can you criticize my use of the English Language when you do not even know how to use it correctly? You are running out of arguments to justify the thieves that you support so now you are nitpicking on my comments. I would feel sorry for you if you were not so stubborn in your crusade for Estrada. You may not understand the meaning of this but you are doing yourself a great disservice by backing such crooks. This is a delicate way of calling you Stupid!

To the Idol Worshipper of ERAP. Let me cut to the chase. You owe decent Filipinos in the PHL & in this Forum an explanation of WHY you choose to support & champion a convicted plunderer & a publicly known crook. Are you by nature crooked too? Look around you in this Forum. Do you see anyone rooting for the Estradas? Don't you ever wonder why? In addition to your explanation you also owe decent Filipinos an APOLOGY. Apologize for wasting their time propagandizing people like the Estradas. Also for insulting their intelligence with your psychotic logic and foul language.

[Someone] asked, "Why would Erap lie to the country that his pardon was absolute restoring all his rights & freedom as a Filipino?". Answer: Why? Because he was a convicted plunderer and a congenital liar. Anyone who has the morals of Erap should not find it difficult to lie. Truth be told it is not his lying that should be questioned. It is the idiotic mentality of the people who believe his lies. People like you, for instance.

To [someone]. The people calling their fellow bloggers ignorant for disagreeing have nothing to support their arguments. By using such words they try to bring the other blogger down to their level. They are also typically poorly educated & have lived a life of bluff, meaning all their lives they have presented themselves as erudite when in fact they know very little. They are like scamming preachers. Pedantic & moralistic but all in all empty & useless.

Binay is a political opportunist. He realizes that his political value is sinking and a tie-up with Poe would raise it up. He is a calculating politician too. Vote for him and all you get is buyer's regret.

Ping Lacson for President? The Rehab Czar announced his irrevocable resignation from his job the other day. Most probably he will now begin his campaign for the Presidency in 2016. No one seems to be impressed with the job he has done. Whatever "rehab" was accomplished did not seem impressive enough to launch a Presidential bid. I believe that Lacson's time has passed. All he can do now is to participate in the political discourse but he will never be the topic of the conversation.

Now that Ping Lacson will presumably start his quest for Malacañang Filipinos can expect "BOMBSHELL" exposes' from him. That's the Lacson style. Whether or not such revelations will shake foundations remains to be seen. But one thing is sure. A lot of wannabes will be agitated. I won't be surprised if so & so frontrunner suddenly finds some "Dark Secret" about him/her being exposed by Lacson.

Buy a 100 thousand dollar home here or a 1 million dollar home and part of the enjoyment is picking those extra you want to have. The security BARS covering each window and door. They come in so many different styles and colors. Also the 10 foot walls and security fence and barbed wire on top. Those too you can have in so many different styles. Of course location location location is a must. The housing area must be guard gated and guard patrolled. But remember those little extras. Tip the guard each day so you won't be robbed. What a beautiful way to live.

The fitness center I go to is located near a very busy T intersection. I go almost each morning. Each morning the police or LTO or the Mayor's traffic office are stopping trike and motor scooter drivers. Each morning there is a different group out there. They are checking for registration, licensed drivers, etc. Strange, I never see tickets being given only plates from vehicles being removed and licenses being taken. Can anyone tell me why?

Today's American Police Force Leaves So Much to be Desired

Long gone are the days when communities all across America looked up to the police officers who patrolled their streets and kept their neighborhoods safe. For cops back then it was a calling—almost like the priesthood—and those who answered that calling were brave, noble, larger-than-life individuals who kept Americans safe. Published 12/14/2014


Obama, a Lincoln to millions of undocumented  immigrants?

President Barack Obama's recent Executive Order legalizing millions of undocumented immigrants will mark him in history as a great President. Undocumented immigrants are the modern day slaves in American society. In constant fear, living in substandard conditions, paid low wages for backbreaking work, subjected to all kinds of abuse and exploitation - they contribute so much to American society.

Pope Francis' View of God

Filipinos preparing to welcome Pope Francis to the Philippines on January 15, 2015 would do well to be familiar with the Pontiff's recently enunciated views which have drawn fire from religious conservatives. One may recall that soon after his election, Pope Francis was criticized for refusing to "judge" gays. Published 11/18/2014
12 Million Metro Manila Commuters Stuck in Gridlock Hell

For much of the last month, my Facebook friends in Metro Manila have been posting comments lamenting their helplessness at being condemned to spend a great portion of what is left of their productive lives stuck in hours of traffic with no hope in sight. They now appreciate why Dan Brown described Manila in his book, Inferno, as “the gates of hell” specifically referring to its “six-hour traffic jams (and) suffocating pollution”. Published 11/062014
Why Filipino-Americans Need to Vote Democratic on November 4

Since 1620 when the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, people the world over have migrated to America in search of a better life. Filipinos are no exception. In the '70s and '80s Filipinos who were able to, left for the U.S. to escape the tyranny of the Marcos regime; today they leave is to escape the poverty and the lack of opportunity in their homeland. Whatever the reason, Filipino migrants quickly shed their old habits and attitudes and embraced American culture. Published 10/30/2014
Both United States and Philippine Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude

The United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman now accused of murder. Published 10/19/2014
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
