BENCHWARMER?

IN BASKETBALL or any other team sports, a bench warmer is someone who plays minor minutes and is considered a reserve player or second stringer.

In contrast to a bench warmer is the star player who makes the best plays and wins games for the team.       

When Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. was appointed by President Duterte last June 31, rumors abound that he was just warming the bench for Senator Allan Peter Cayetano, the President’s running mate to whom he allegedly committed the position.

THE GODS LOVE DUTERTE

THE Gods must really be favoring and smiling on President Rodrigo Duterte. 

This is because the President always ends up with the winning cards whether waging a personal battle or engaging with other leaders in international political arena.

CUTTING EAGLE'S CLAWS

WHEN does the country’s best interest come?

Is it when being subservient to a foreign power or when it decides to adopt an independent foreign policy stance?

These are the posers that former President Noynoy Aquino failed to contemplate on before taking a dig on incumbent President Rodrigo Duterte’s current stand on foreign policy.

During an interview in Thailand, where he visited the wake of late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Aquino claimed that his administration’s foreign policy had been an “independent” one, guided by what could be in the best interest of the country.

As expected, the former leader has earned…

MISS UNIVERSE HOSTING TURNS INTO POLITICAL ISSUE

JUST like last May elections, the Philippines’ hosting of the 2017 Miss Universe pageant has become the current hottest issue on social media showing intense political division between proponents and antagonists of the event.

Some kind of voting has even began in Facebook with the Duterte administration supporters dominating the discussions with acerbic language that they have so mastered in recent months and as if adopting their principal’s manner of speaking.

The debate on whether to host or not began when a Facebook post by a certain Annie Serrano, signed by 58 individuals including business people, nongovernment organization representatives and…
