– “…Duterte’s Kitchen. Bridging the gap between those who go to sleep with a full stomach and those who cannot afford a meal to survive any given day, as a way of directly mitigating poverty in the early stages of the pro-poor Duterte government. More than that, it has inspired volunteerism among service workers who willingly share their skills, e.g. barbers, teachers, to the downtrodden, absolutely for free. Reading, writing, music appreciation, counseling and free haircut are a regular part of the curriculum and service”:
(Duterte is Not Genocidal, The West is. Here’s the proof…)
Many Westerners cannot reconcile the negative claims of their own institutions on why the Philippine population overwhelmingly voted and continue to support a “self-confessed murderer.”
There are probably hundreds of reasons why the Western portrayal of Philippine president Mayor Rodrigo Duterte as genocidal will fail for its absolute lack of merit.
Without being exhaustive, this article will present a few of those verifiable facts of why the Filipinos, a sizable 90% majority of them, love their president.
- Duterte’s Kitchen. Bridging the gap between those who go to sleep with a full stomach and those who cannot afford a meal to survive any given day, as a way of directly mitigating poverty in the early stages of the pro-poor Duterte government. More than that, it has inspired volunteerism among service workers who willingly share their skills, e.g. barbers, teachers, to the downtrodden, absolutely for free. Reading, writing, music appreciation, counseling and free haircut are a regular part of the curriculum and service.
Other financially capable donors would just drop by with sacks of rice, cake, or offer a property where a Duterte Kitchen can be constructed in the future. However, they won’t accept cash donations. The whole idea is to eliminate hunger without the usual feeding on the appetite for corruption.
- Allocation of P1 Billion medical assistance for those who can’t afford to buy prescription drugs. The health secretary has also studied on location the Cuban healthcare system as the template for the delivery of health services in the country.
- Establishment of Tawag 8888 for any complaints against government officials. This facility provides a direct line to the presidential staff who will act, or direct the issue to pertinent government agency soonest possible for every problem raised by the citizenry. This measure grossly reduced corruption in the delivery of public services at the executive department.
- Establishment of a One-Stop Shop for Overseas Workers OFW, a center for the centralized processing of employment papers which was the milking cow for corrupt government workers and “fixers.” The center also saved the OFW time and money while traveling from one agency to the next.
- Establishment of Central 911 for emergency assistance request, free of charge. Still on its early stages, but has greatly reduced the deaths and destruction of typhoons as bad as Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. The nationwide Central 911 has its humble beginnings in Davao City, the president’s hometown.
- Total elimination of “laglag-bala” or bullet planting at the international airports on 1st day of office. This has been a major cause of humiliation abroad when airport security personnel planted bullets into the baggage of departing passengers, effectively delaying their flight unless payment is extended. Duterte government solved this by allowing every passenger caught carrying ammunition to take the flight after the contraband is confiscated and the event logged for future reference.
- Banning of household service workers for the Middle East. Amidst reports of employer abuses of female domestic helpers, the government is banning new contracts for them in favor of highly skilled workers and technicians.
- Local employers have heeded the call for an end to contractual employment beyond 6 months, except only for seasonal jobs. Security of tenure to the first regularized 30,000 employees are now secured;
- Strict implementation of “Nose-in, Nose out” in all provincial bus terminals along EDSA which greatly reduced traffic clogging in the largest avenue in the capital, even during this holiday season. The traffic in EDSA is costing the economy $2billion annually according to a JICA study.
- Mass transit facilities are repaired and upgraded. Dilapidated Metrorail Transport System, an object of massive criticism for constantly bugging down in between terminals are now being upgraded, and all non-working elevators are repaired and functional.
- The Duterte government is allocating P3.8 trillion for infrastructures for the next 6 years dubbed as “The Golden Age of Infrastructure” in the country. Already, unemployment has gone down with its accelerated infrastructure spending for the first 6 months of the government using a budget crafted by its predecessor.
- Executive Order on Freedom of Information covering the entire Executive branch of Government. The Duterte government has effectively preempted Congress’s constant dilly-dallying of the transparency measure for decades now. Everyone can now request any information pertaining to government spending and policies, purposely to curb graft and corruption through public participation. Exceptions to the measure are those which concerns only with “national security.”
- Significant 80% reduction of corruption at the Bureau of Customs, resulting in a massive increase in import duty collection surpassing the target set by the previous administration. Reforms cost one life of an investigator. No more unauthorized opening of OFW boxes, greatly reducing pilferage and extortion. Installation of CCTV inside personnel office, and implemented a no-contact policy, direct bank payment of duties, and x-ray scanning of cargo trucks to facilitate and reduce importation processing time.
- Terminated 100s of LTFRB personnel in charge of issuing transport licenses and franchise, and corrupt government workers from various agencies. Driver licenses are now being issued after a year delay due to endemic corruption within the transport agency. No more bogus franchise being issued after the internal syndicate was neutralized and removed recently.
- Reduced processing time of Business Permits and Approval of Foreign Company Requirements nationwide to 3 days and 1 month, respectively. This radical measure is attracting more direct investments in the country.
- Peace talks with the Communists led to reciprocated unilateral ceasefires and zero sporadic armed encounters in the countryside,
- The good rapport of the president and his sincere and concrete engagement with the Moro Secessionist groups yielded good atmosphere for the resumption of peace talks between the government and the people in Muslim Mindanao. The passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law, which covers an expanded area of Autonomous Muslim Mindanao is expected soon. This will form part of the articles in the initiated federalism movement to politically reconfigure the country according to ancestral and tribal domains.
- Initiate constitutional changes on the form of the government from presidential to federal-parliamentary, which should give the regions enough authority to chart their own course for the future.
- Recently inaugurated “Negosyo para sa Kapayapaan sa Sulu”, or Entrepreneurship for Peace in Sulu, which is a business community and government collaboration to end the war, poverty and terrorism right inside the lair of the ISIS-affiliated Abu Sayyaf in Muslim Mindanao.
If there’s one video that you need to avoid watching let it not be this one.
This never before seen cooperation between the government and the Oligarchy could very well be the watershed that the country has been looking for to finally lift the country from its economic mediocrity. The Elite may have found the Duterte term as the most opportune time to atone for their sins, e.g. not paying their workers with a living wage, land grabs, political interference in connivance with foreign imperialists and outright economic sabotage through import smuggling.
“Why are we in this situation? We are here because we have not solved our internal problem of fighting each other … incidentally, this is what President Duterte is primarily addressing.” – Jose Almonte, former National Security Council adviser and Godfather of the RAM Officers who helped topple dictator Marcos in 1986.
Even prior to his presidential campaign, Duterte is already showing a good example of what a government should be. He conceptualized and implemented the following programs in his humongous hometown city of Davao:
- Development Code [City Ordinance 5004] – a comprehensive and integrated approach to protecting women in his city; empowers women to have equal number of slots in the local government offices;
- Comprehensive Anti-Smoking Ordinance – strictly prohibits smoking in all public places, except in carefully designated smoking areas;
- Anti-discrimination Ordinance – prohibits discrimination against PWDs, Lumads [natives], Muslims vs. Christians, gays and lesbians;
- Firecracker and Gunfiring Ban – prohibits the manufacture, sale and use of firecrackers, and gun-firing in celebration of holidays, etc.
- House of Hope which caters the needs of the sick, abandoned and maltreated housewives and children.
People in Davao confessed that even though Duterte might be tough on criminals during his 23-year mayoralty, but it is in the House of Hope which he established early on where his heart bleeds whenever he visits the facility.
All of these progressive measures will be strictly implemented nationwide.
Interspersed between these developments is his regular anti-drug lord, anti-corruption and anti-NWO rhetoric which is the only thing that the Western media love to blow up, and for which he doesn’t really care as much as the value of the message he wants to impart to the public about the true gravity of the situation and to tell the people who specifically are responsible for the dire conditions prior to his incumbency.
He banters on the inability of the Khazarian puppets to understand that threatening criminals is not a crime in this part of the world. His admission to actually killing criminals is one of those threats that without hard evidence would not land him to jail.
His prosecutorial experience allowed him to understand the mind of a criminal. He can speak in their language. More than that, he fully understands that the war on drugs could never be won with police actions only, but with the full, active cooperation of the family and the entire community.
… as much as he understood that the Muslim secessionist movements and terrorism will not end with the power of the guns alone, but with the help of the business sector and the entire society.
Above all, the Duterte government is giving the people the opportunity to dream again for a better future, a respite from 30 years of Oligarchic Rule which forced the parents to work abroad.
That is not how a genocidal mind works.
However, the evidence that the Duterte accusers in the West are culpable of the worst human rights record throughout history, is far too many to even be accommodated in this modest page. Their crimes against humanity have been committed throughout Asia, in the Middle East and even in Europe and America where these noisy institutions emanate from.
So, while the High Commissioner of Human Rights orders an investigation about Duterte’s killings as mayor of Davao City, the same UN Commission on Human Rights failed to explain to the world as to why they have accepted Saudi Arabia as a member and Chair to the UN Human Rights Council while the Arab country is busy bombing Yemeni children with US/UK made cluster bombs.
Indeed, there is no escape against their atrocities.
The manner by which these atrocities are perpetrated ranges from the use of bullets and bombs, to weaponized food and medicine, weaponized broadcasts of false and fabricated information, and through outright coercive geopolitics.
The agencies and organizations which perpetrated these atrocities are assembled in multi-layers of sophisticated predefined functions, yet compartmentalized enough from one another to avoid anyone from seeing the “big picture” or the ultimate object of the whole enterprise.
The Philippine ancestry was not engaged in cannibalism as portrayed in some journals authored by the West at the turn of the 20th century. Instead, there are direct first-hand witness testimonies and video accounts that the West is practicing cannibalism as part of their Satanic rituals, e.g. Svali, Leo Zagami, and many others.
Basically, pedophiles are running the Western world according to a few courageous Western investigative journalists themselves.
This satanic arrangement goes all the way to the top of the Vatican totem pole.
If for a Duterte, death threats are dirt cheap, for the West, life disappears without warning.
National budget disappears without full accountability.
Every government policy is crafted and done in utmost secrecy. The Corporate Media and the police are completely conscripted towards a fascist dictatorship, where truth becomes fiction, and individual privacy, the innocent victim.
Crafting the Future
The president likens the Philippine economy to “an airliner taxiing on the runway at full speed, yet cannot lift itself off the ground” due to government corruption.
The recently signed General Appropriations Act of 2017 reflects the socially-inclined mindset of the Duterte administration, and his government fully commit that every cent of it be spent accordingly as appropriated and mandated by law.
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday signed into law the P3.35-trillion national budget for 2017, his first appropriations measure as the country’s Chief Executive.
Republic Act No. 10924 or the General Appropriations Act (GAA) provides for allocations that are 11.6 percent higher than those in the 2016 general appropriations act that cost P3 trillion.
“Higher than last year’s budget, the 2017 budget of P3.35 trillion includes a sizeable increase in allocation of infrastructure projects, free education for state universities and colleges, universal health care, rice allowance for the poor, free irrigation subsistence, allowance for prisoners, pension for war veterans and centenarians that should directly benefit our citizens,” Duterte said in his speech after signing.
The Department of Education (DepEd) will receive the biggest chunk of the budget with P544.1 billion, as mandated by the Constitution.
The national budget also includes P58.72 billion for state universities and colleges and P18.7 billion for Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
“The GAA affirms the national government’s commitments to support the needs of our people to enhance basic social services and projects,” Duterte said.
“As the first budget of my administration, we ensure that it will be pro-people, pro-investment, pro-growth, and pro-development,” he added.
“The signing of the GAA affirms the national government’s commitments to support the needs of our people to enhance basic social services and projects,” Duterte said.
With a promise to make Duterte’s term the “golden age of infrastructure,” P454.7 billion was allocated to Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and P53.3 billion for Department of Transportation (DoTr).
To continue the efforts against illegal drugs and improve peace and order in the country, the 2017 budget will include P148 billion for Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) and P137.2 billion for the Department of National Defense (DND).
The Duterte administration granted P128.3 billion for Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
Department of Health (DOH) was given an allocation of P96.3 billion. Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth) will get P53.22 billion from the national budget.
The National Irrigation Administration (NIA) will also get P2 billion for the farmers.
“Farmers will no longer have to pay irrigation fees with P2 billion allocation for National Irrigation Administration… I’ve been wondering all these years why we have to pay for water,” he said.

We are expecting that the Duterte Kitchen will also be enhanced and expanded next year as the first Duterte national budget comes into effect, and as more people become aware of the humble endeavor and volunteer their free time to the program.
It is also worth mentioning the positive responses of China to the peace initiatives of the current government in spite of the Hague Tribunal’s UNCLOS verdict in its favor, which tone down the rhetorics pertaining to the West Philippine Sea, or the South China Sea, and instead extended $24 billion worth of economic assistance without the Western style “carrot and stick” strings attached.
Aside from the Chinese government that is more than ready to provide financial support to the country’s massive infrastructure projects with easy-to-pay long term loans, and even supply arms to the government, Chinese philanthropists are also making their presence felt especially in the rehabilitation of 900,000 drug users who submitted themselves to the government.
The first 10,000 bed drug rehabilitation center in the Philippines is made possible with the help of the Chinese philanthropist, Huang Rulun, and the donated facility was inaugurated last November 29th, 2016.
Observations on the Fist 100 Days of the Duterte Administration
The first 100 Days of President Duterte from the viewpoint of the Local Business Community…
“I have seen presidents come and go. But the first 100 days that we are experiencing today, you know, has borne more fruits.” – Donald Dee, chairman emeritus of the Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines
“We are very positive about what we’re seeing.” – George Barcelon, president of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry
The first 100 Days of President Duterte from the viewpoint of the Foreign Business Community…
“Is President Rodrigo Duterte talking too much?… This writer disagrees. The President should keep up his colorful remarks, not because one is fond of technicolor language, but because Duterte’s discombobulating deliveries are delivering results that immensely benefit the country. – Ricardo Saludo, “Keep talking, Mr. President”
With all the foregoing facts and many more than we could ever fit into this page, we can rightfully say that both the Philippine Oligarchy, or the business community and the people at large need a tough and patriotic leadership as exemplified by Mayor Duterte and his cabinet secretaries.
Anything less, like the past weakling administrations of Jesuit puppet Corazon Aquino, CIA stooge Fidel V. Ramos, Actor Joseph E. Estrada, Jesuit economist Gloria M. Arroyo, and the most stupid of all Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, cannot produce the same results in just a span of 6 months.
Either by their sheer ineptitude, or outright insensitivity to the plight of the poor, all of the above post-Marcos governments allowed the country to turn into a NarcoState.
This is the most that a mainstream documentary can do to date on Duterte’s drug war…
Al Jazerra, however, failed to account for the Congressional hearings involving the drug lords running the drug distribution in the country who, under oath, pointed to Senator Leila Delima as their “Drug Queen” in the Philippines.
High-security inmate Jaybee Sebastian’s testimony shown below proved that the proliferation of illegal drugs during the incumbency of the then Secretary of Justice Leila Delima increased significantly, and this is due to the fact that the secretary demanded an increased drug sale activity by demanding a fix amount of protection money from every drug lord who are already incarcerated at the Bilibid National Penitentiary, purposely to fund her senatorial campaign for last May 2016 national elections.
Now, Senator Delima has just been awarded “Foreign Policy Global Thinker 2016” for standing up to Duterte.
Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Foreign Policy, an American magazine that focuses on foreign affairs, named Sen. Leila De Lima as one of its 100 Global Thinkers for 2016 for “standing up to an extremist leader.” – CNN Philippines
In much the same way as Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize only to subsequently waged the most vicious attacks on Syria via terrorist proxies, Western imperialist “think tank” Foreign Policy extended an award to feed the ego of a morally bankrupt personality — one who admitted to have engaged in concubinage via mainstream broadcast.
“Frailties of a woman” as if all women are like her. No, he is not legally separated from his wife as admitted by Delima’s driver-lover-drug bagman Ronnie Dayan himself.
The same bagman also admitted to have picked up protection money from one of the drug lords testifying at the congressional hearings and has delivered the same money personally to Senator Delima on multiple occasions.
Video subtitles and translations here.
On the advice of Delima, this bagman has been hiding for several months before caught by the combined police and intelligence dragnet. Because of this, an “obstruction of justice” case was filed against the senator.
The Duterte government is now awaiting for the full disclosure and analysis of the Anti-Money Laundering body of the Central Bank pertaining to various accounts used in laundering drug money, prior to the filing of criminal charges relating illegal drugs against the sitting senator.
Ugly scenes at the top echelons of the Philippine government are what angered the people for the last 30 years. Their collective frustration at the failure of successive governments to curb corruption and criminality is the reason behind Mayor Duterte’s ascension to the presidency.
Sans CIA-Jesuit assassination, or “regime change” intervention, and the ability of the incumbent president to unite the people from all socioeconomic classes and political persuasions to one common objective, the best is yet to come for the Philippines.
