^yes, the VP is supposed to step up if the prez dies. It's in the constitution. Just like when Magsaysay died, his VP took over. I think it was Carlos P. Garcia, if I remember my history correctly.

The rumours say that the powers-that-be are paving the way for Bongbong. The PTB are against Leni Robredo. She's already been told to f*** off from cabinet meetings (last wk or 2 wks ago?). Then if Leni steps up, they'll deem that her win was unconstitutional bcos her party cheated (dagdag-bawas), then it'll be the Marcoses again. Just rumours, mind you...

^she's the current VP. Diff pol'l party frm Du30, same party as the prev prez (Aquino). Her husband served in Noynoy Aquino's cabinet, and was known to be a good & honest leader. Bcos of those traits, he died in suspicious circumstances - helicopter crash while visiting the provinces. His widow, Leni, ran for congresswoman (or mayor?) a few yrs later & won. She became the running mate of Mar Roxas in this year's presidential elections. Roxas lost to Duterte, but Leni won over Bongbong Marcos by a slight margin. At one point in the counting, Bongbong had the lead.

From reports, Leni is a good & honest woman & politician. She's a relative newbie in politics. The Du30 gov't doesn't like her bcos she's not frm their posse. She's been told to NOT attend cabinet meetings, 2 wks ago I think.

BLD - yes, she's a good looking woman. Carries herself well. She's a widow, so you can ask her out. But I don't think your mrs would approve. Heh.

Cheers and Happy Holidays. All of his blustering is actually stirring up little other than anti-Duterte feelings. His approval rating that was in the mid-90's is now at 77 and dropping daily. Thus far his attacks on the US, EU, UN, church, etc have resulted in a huge amount of blustering, but virtually no concrete action.

My wife and her family still like Duerte A LOT. They are willing to give plenty of time for him to do his magic. Consider how little was done by other Presidents and parties Duerte has plenty of time. If he kicks out U.S. military so be it. Both sides will have to deal with it and come up with something new.

Sounds like the pillock really doesn't want off the US tit to me.

Fuming over perceived U.S. slight, Duterte says he will set aside South China Sea ruling against Beijing | The Japan Times

"Earlier Saturday, Duterte threatened to terminate a pact that allows U.S. troops to visit, saying, “Bye-bye, America” as he reacted with rage to what he thought was a U.S. decision to scrap a major aid package over human rights concerns.

U.S. government aid agency, the Millennium Challenge Corp., said Thursday that its board had deferred a vote on a renewal of the development assistance package for the Philippines “subject to a further review of concerns around rule of law and civil liberties.”

The U.S. agency has not yet voted to either scrap or approve the aid package, but Duterte unleashed a barrage of expletives-laden tirade upon his arrival in his southern hometown in Davao after back-to-back visits to Cambodia and Singapore.

“I understand that we have been stricken out of the Millennium Challenge. Well, good, I welcome it,” Duterte said with apparent sarcasm.

“We can survive without American money,” he said. “But you know, America, you might also be put to notice. Prepare to leave the Philippines, prepare for the eventual repeal or the abrogation of the Visiting Forces Agreement,” he said, referring to a 1998 accord that governs American forces visiting the Philippines for joint combat exercises.

“You know, tit for tat. … If you can do this, so (can) we. It ain’t a one-way traffic,” Duterte said, adding, “Bye-bye, America.”

Chief of Police, DelaRosa announced that he was due a Bonus for end of year, something like 100K to 400K (2'000 to 8'000Usd).

Du30 was not happy that his chap announced this and changed the deal to a Caban as bonus ! (sack of 50kg rice)

I think it is to all Generals or high ranked.

Duterte named ‘Person of the Year’ by Chinese magazine



PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has been named “Person of the Year” by a Chinese magazine, Malacañang announced on Tuesday.

Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said Yazhou Zhoukan, “the Time magazine of the Chinese-speaking world,” gave the honor to Duterte following the Filipino leader’s “announcement of an independent foreign policy that consists of his distancing away from the US and forging closer ties with China.”

“The article also praises Duterte’s program of good governance and anti-corruption campaign as a reason for his popularity among the Filipinos,” Abella told reporters.

Yazhou Zhoukan, he noted, is the world’s only Chinese language international affairs magazine, circulated in major markets including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia.

The weekly magazine is owned by the Malaysia-based Media Chinese International Ltd., which is listed on the Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur stock exchanges.

Since taking power on June 30, 3016, Duterte has made headlines for declaring a “military and economic separation” from the US and hitting hard on Washington and United Nations officials critical of his bloody war on drugs.

To pursue a more independent foreign policy, Duterte is seeking closer ties with US rivals China and Russia through economic and arms deals.
