BBM’s betrayal of ASEAN, and New Macabebes of the U.S. Deep State


By Herman Tiu Laurel

This morning I was glad to read Bobi Tiglao’s “Marcos’ embrace of US worries Asean” article in the Manila Times as I have been reporting this fact over my YouTube, FB and GNN (Golden Nation Network) satellite/cabe TV show that’s also shown on SkyCable TV.

                BBM, which I translate to BabawMarcos or BoboMarcos, is in fact a traitor to ASEAN and its two pacts of utmost importance to maintiang the ASEAN neighborhood’s peace, security and stabilty to ensure the safe environment for continuing economic development of the region.

                The two pacts are the ZOPFAN or ASEAN as a Zone of Peace, Freedom and Neutrality, and the second is the SEANWFZ or Southeast-Asian Nuclear Weapons Free Zone agreement. The term Neutrality is clerar commitment BBM is violating, while past U.S. record of storing nuke in its Philippine bases and the EDCA’s “no inspection” virtually guarantees the Philippines will allow US nukes in the EDCA bases.

                We have speculated on the many possible reasons why BBM betrayed himself, his fathere’s legacy and Duterte’s “independent foreign policy” practice and turned away from all these on a dime – from proteciton for the Marcos wealth in the U.S. to being hostaged by the US and its New Macabebes in a February Palace coup, but its now apparent his collaboration with the U.S. goes back to the elections.

                Former Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) secretary Eliseo Rio has been presenting incontrovertible evidence of election counting tampering by the Comelec. The last eleciton still used the Smartmatic machine controlled by the British and the U.S., so it may be this and “all of the above” including the Marcos wealth and campaign funds surpluses filtered off to Singapore.

                What we now discover behind the “weak and incompetent” façade is a devious, ego-centrict, oportunistic, corrupt hedonist with nary a care except his greed (others say, along with his spouse’s). The least of his concerns is the people suffering food, elecrtricity, transport inflation on a daily mounitng basis and doing nothing about it as Marie Antoinetter seems to echo  – “Let them eat Kadiwa cake!”

                He surrounds himself with people like himself,  the mega-business cronies with old principalia-comprador surnames Aboitiz, Ayala, et al, and mongrels like the oligarch of the beer empire turned power predator. He climbs theladders of the highest societies of the globe – off to England, off to France, of toe the U.S. in pitifully meaningless visits just for photo-ops with the emperors with no clothes.

Filipino families would normally  keeps their heads high despite the poverty but now 51% readily admit they are poor, that’s over half the population. Even the Middle Class are hard put to keep their airconditionig on in the worse heat of the days of the era of Climate Change. The NEDA averages inflation to bring it down to 6.5% when the fact is 90% at least face 9.5% inflation.

The politicans in the Senate and in the Low House, like BBM, like the mega-crony business clans, are the same and come from the same only economic-political corrupt elites or corrupt local political clans. The preserve the prevailing system to preserve themselves and their political clans, fleese government budget and debts.

Who is there then to protect the people and the nation? The Philippine Constitution flags the Armed Forces of thre Philippines as the protector of the People and the Constitution, and the Constitution visionizes: “… a just and humane society,… a Government that … promote the common good,…secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of independence and democracy…”

The top echelons of the mainly PMA graduate Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and their civilianized superiors in the DND and NSA have surfaced their true loyalties as the New Macabebes serving the U.S. colonizers that pushed the EDCA and silent Palace coup so willingly embraced by BBM under threat of exposure by the U.S. of all the very early conjugal amassment.

The New Macabebes are protecting this system and not the People, so thet nation awaits the genuine Katipuneros that survive in the AFP to rise and correct the historical injustice that resurfaces today with a vengeance. This is the second Philippine-American War and the final chapter of the Unfinished Revolution.

The Second Philippine-American War and completing the Philippine Revolution  can be peacefully waged, through presentation to the people of the historical facts and truths, agitating and pushing for a Popular Referendum to disapprove the EDCA bases, by way of changing elections to the parliamentary system bringing election closer to the people and to realistic costs, and finally junking Smartmatic for hybrid manual-electronic voting. The mainstream media the a major vehicle of the US and its allied fiends, NATO et al, and we should wage war against it s brains washing of the people, especially the youth.
