Duterte Continues to Defy Western Propaganda 

MARCH 11, 2017

 

The Philippine government continues to implement massive reforms across the bureaucracy in dizzying pace, while the West is resuming its attacks on the Philippine president. Incidentally, the latter is just taking all of it in stride. Why not?

He has successfully dictated the terms of the battle.

The true enemies of the State are now being put in their most uncomfortable, defensive stance, as their true character, and the lies they’ve been peddling over the years, are sustainably being exposed for all the world to see.

No longer are the people listening to their sermons, but are starting to wake up to the calls of the president to use a more practical approach to everything that is ailing the country. 

War on Criminality and Narcopolitics

So far, Duterte’s 8-month old War on Narcopolitics has yielded:

  • 43,790 police operations conducted, since July 1, 2016;
  • 7,070,317 houses visited as part of “Project Tokhang” which served to warn the suspects; tokhang is a contraction of “toktok” [knocking] and “hangyo” [plead];
  • 1,179, 476 drug surrenderees = 79,349 pushers + 1,110,113 users, some of whom are already undergoing community rehabilitation, or drug rehab center based recovery;
  • 7,080 deaths via legitimate police operations and vigilante killings;
  • 603 deaths under investigations DUIs by Philippine National Police-Internal Affairs Service (PNP-IAS) investigation; 922 investigations of which have concluded;
  • 35 police personnel killed during operations;
  • 87 police personnel wounded during operations;
  • armed forces personnel killed in action;
  • armed forces personnel wounded in action;
  • 1 sitting senator incarcerated for having funded her senatorial campaign out of druglords’ protection money, and;
  • At least 50% reduction of street crimes has been observed;

Prior to Duterte, even minors have guns in the Philippines.

Duterte Making the Most Out of Available Resource

For decades, some factions of the Philippine National Police have been running criminal syndicates directly, and otherwise. It is estimated that today, there are 6,000 police officers are into drug trafficking and related criminal activities, e.g. car napping, kidnapping. The collusion of some judges allowed these officers to rule the streets with impunity.

With the involvement of politicians and some elements in the justice system, it’s accurate for the Duterte administration to conclude that narcopolitics has found its way beyond the urban centers and into the remote villages in the countryside. In desperation, some of these farmers are even selling their farm animals and tools just to get their daily fix.

Hypocrites, They All Are

Instead of helping the Duterte government like one Chinese billionaire philanthropist has done, i.e. he donated a 10,000 bed drug rehabilitation center, all Western institutions continue to condemn the laudable effort.

“Amnesty [International] is deeply concerned that the deliberate and widespread killings of alleged drug offenders, which appear to be systematic, planned and organized by the authorities, may constitute crimes against humanity,” says a newly-published report.

In parallel to the Tokhang Reloaded, the government is also establishing the Inter-agency Committee on Anti-illegal Drugs (ICAD), which sought to integrate the efforts of various agencies of government to implement a holistic approach to the drug menace.

War on Destructive Mining

A very interesting development is how the Environment Secretary continues to defy the pressure from mining companies receiving closure orders for failing the government onsite audit that’s been recently conducted.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Thursday ordered the closure of 21 mining firms after they were found to have severely destroyed the environment of the local communities where they are operating.

Another five mining companies were suspended also for various violations.

Lopez called the mining situation in Zambales “social injustice.”

In response, the mining firms are justifying their operations for the jobs they’ve created, saying that the community hosting those mines have improved their economies. What they won’t talk about is the long-term damage they have inflicted, not just in the mined areas, but also on the entire biodiversity of neighboring provinces and islands.

Lopez said the DENR is “fully aware” that many workers in the mines would be affected, but the welfare of the people in these areas was more important.

She believes that stock market and GDP are not good indicators of economic development. Instead, what’s needed is area development, according to Lopez.

“We can get rid of poverty” through area development, Lopez said.

War on Poverty

It is also the first time in the history of the country when civilian infrastructure developments are being proportionately distributed across the regions, and even in the long neglected Muslim Mindanao. The civilian projects in Muslim Mindanao are also complemented with an all-out war against the Abu Sayyaf bandits of the CIA.

As everyone here knows, terrorism, drug trafficking and mining for raw materials, are all high-stakes enterprises ultimately run by the Khazarian Deep State around the world.

The People’s Bottomline

As the rest of the world is now undergoing, the Philippines has engaged itself in destroying the entire infrastructure which has kept the egotistical elite in power for a very long time. They fully understand what their president is up against.

Nobody said that internal cleansing will be a walk in the park. It is always painful and bloody. That’s the reason why we cannot allow ourselves to be back in this situation again.
