Why did President Duterte all of a sudden make a 180° turnaround regarding our territorial issue. Just yesterday he told the military to occupy West Philippines Sea islands.
All these times, he has been defending China, instead of Philippine interest, with regards to our territorial issues, the most recent being the Benham Rise issue. So why the sudden change in his position? The answer is the surveys. This order of his came just a day after the latest survey came out where his rating dropped 7% and 15% down from the first survey on July last year:
Fifteen percent in less than a year is no joke because if this trend continue, his rating will be significantly lower by next year. So the President and the Malacañang boys must have panicked and they thought they should do something, something fast, to address this problem. Mantakin mo bumagsak lang ng konti ang rating tarantang-taranta na ang mga hayop na yan.
“The answer is the surveys. ..his rating drop 7% and 15% down from the first survey in July last year… …So the President and the Malacanang boys must have panicked and they thought they should do something, something fast, to address this problem.”
Political analysts cited Benham Rise issue as among the possible reasons for the drop in his ratings. So this explain why this brave man made a sudden turnabout – a president who didn’t care a bit about the numerous criticisms regarding this issue & who has instead been shamelessly and defiantly defending the Chinese now all of a sudden wants to change the name of Benham Rise to “Philippine Ridge”! only because of the drop in his ratings.
So what does this mean for us contra’s or anti’s? It means our attack against the administration has been effective and we should continue attacking and attacking no matter how many times we are tokhanged, and never give up! Keep on attacking and attacking until his rating falls to zero! We are winning the war, slowly perhaps, but surely.
“It means our attack against the administration has been effective and we should continue attacking and attacking no matter how many times we are tokhanged, and NEVER GIVE UP! Keep on attacking and attacking until his rating falls to zero! We are winning the war, slowly perhaps, but surely.”
It’s really easy to find fault with this erratic president and his administration. His administration’s success or failure will depend not only on him and his boys but also on us contra’s/anti’s. The most important lesson we learned from this issue is that this seemingly carefree, unflinching president is not all that fearless; he crumbles so easily with just slight dip in his ratings! But of course, don’t trust him, he is probably just trying to fool us again. He is pro-China by heart and after all these issues fade and are forgotten, he will continue to take his pro-China stance again and I don’t even think it will take that long. But what’s important is that we found out one of his major weaknesses. So let’s go back to our works, kapwa contra’s/anti’s, and let’s bring him down, legitimately, I mean…

Ituloy ang laban para sa bayan kahit ito ay magtagal, ang importante nakita natin ang kahinaan ng bastos na presidenteng to, ang tagumpay di makukuha sa biglaan, ito ay nangangailangan ng konting tiyaga, at di ba sa ating pagtitiyaga nakita natin ang konting pag-asa, kaya sugod at ipaglaban ang bayan laban sa walang pusong presidenteng to na puro lang yabang yon pala hangin lang. Sa aking mga kapatid sa parehong ipinaglalaban, ipakita lalo ang katapangan, tanging sigasig at katapatan sa bayan ang tanging solution para mapatalsik natin ang presidenteng walang hihigit sa kasamaan, nandito na tayo tapusin ang LABAN.!!

The Chinese are complaining (see link below). What will our courageous President Duterte do now? Is he more afraid of the Chinese? or his falling ratings? Will he cower under Chinese pressure again or will he stand his ground and try to show us he’s brave and therefore, “please give me high rating”? Take your pick, my friends and let us see what this man will do this time.

Malacañang has reacted and this early, they are on a defensive and conciliatory mode in sharp contrast to the firm stand made earlier.
Wow, how easily this brave man crumbles under slightest of pressure from China. On the main commentary, I said, “..he will continue to take his pro-China stance again and I don’t even think it will take that long…” but I didn’t think it will come this soon! So watch out on news programs and articles this coming week for further reactions from the Palace and see how this brave administration will bow down to its master, China.

Arturo Lascañas left the country:
Another possible reason for the fall in the survey ratings of the President as cited by political analysts was the testimony of Lascañas against the President and his D.D.S. and so the question is why was he allowed to leave so easily? Is the Palace trying to sabotage further testimony from this man? Perhaps not, but the timing is just a little suspicious. But – on the positive side – could it be possible he might be testifying at some international human rights forum? Just my wishful thinking but I’m going to bet on that.

Now comes another survey, this time the S.W.S survey, the more credible of the two. But unfortunately this time, the survey gives the President a high rating, unchanged from the last survey.
So how will the President react this time? Of course he would act as his usual self – an erratic president without principle – and as you’ve probably guessed it, he is starting to take back, or bawiin, his statement, starting by withdrawing his plan or order to plant our flag in our offshore territories!
And this is an utter shame:
This is nothing surprising given his erratic character. But this doesn’t change the fact that the President takes survey ratings seriously and that he is really affected by dip in his ratings, which means we should all the more keep on attacking and attacking so that his rating will take another dip. A good place to start is here, continuing where we left off from the Benham Rise issue:
