Government security forces have killed 89 Islamist militants during more than a week of fighting in Marawi City but the gunmen are still offering strong resistance and holding hostages, the military said Wednesday.

Attack helicopters fired rockets repeatedly on Wednesday morning into the pockets of Marawi City where the militants were hiding among trapped residents, according to an AFP reporter who was following troops searching houses.

The clashes erupted on Tuesday last week when Maute gunmen waving black flags of the Islamic State (IS) group rampaged through the mostly Muslim-populated city in response to an effort by security forces to arrest a Filipino on the US government's list of most-wanted terrorists.

That militant leader, Abu Sayyaf's Isnilon Hapilon, escaped but he was still believed to be in Marawi, military spokesman Brigadier General Restituto Padilla said Wednesday.

Eighty-nine militants had been killed in the efforts to reclaim the city and find Hapilon, Padilla told reporters

Karma is Real: I’m a victim of trolls - Jim Paredes

3:45:00 AM 0

Legendary OPM artist Jim Paredes vehemently denied the reports published on the internet that he called the people of Mindanao as ‘Taga-Bundok or Mountain People’

In his Twitter account, Paredes debunked the news that he said degrading comments for the Mindanaoan people and even cursed the guy who created a fake account to destroy his image.

He warned the people to avoid being fooled by ‘fake sites’ and he believes that the internet trolls already knew that they are losing the ‘war on truth’ that’s why they are desperate to destroy his image.

My FB account has close to 4K friends. Don’t be fooled by fake sites. Trolls know they are losing the war on truth so they are desperate
Paredes also explained that he respected the people of Mindanao and he never said such things like that because her mother is also a Mindanaoan.

I NEVER referred to Mindanaoans as Taong Bundok. My own mother is from Mindanao. Lies lies lies spread by trolls and losers on fake sites

3:22:00 PM 0

Davao City Mayor Paolo Duterte lambasted the people who opposed the declaration of Martial Law in the whole island on Mindanao Thursday

In his Facebook post he said that Yellows or people who supported the Liberal Party and the opposition had an outdated brain and they needed a reboot immediately.

“Ito ang itsura ng Martial Law namin dito sa Davao City. Ang utak ninyong mga YELLOW, OUTDATED na masyado ipareboot nyo na yan..” Vice Mayor Pulong wrote in his post.

He also slammed the groups who rallied in the streets to oppose the Martial Law declared by President Rodrigo Duterte and asked them if they are protecting criminals or terrorists that’s why they are afraid by the decision of his father.

“kayong mga nagpuputak sa daan, bat kayo takot sa martial law? may pinoprotektahan ba kayong kriminal or terrorista?”

In his other post, Pulong Duterte said that no one must fear the Martial Law if they are all ‘law-abiding citizen’

Since the start of Martial Law, groups most of them from Luzon already rallied in the streets to expressed their disappointment to the decision of President Duterte.

They urged the people not to support the Martial Law because they believed that it would only worsen the situation of Mindanao.

But the Mindanaoans was happy by the decision of President Duterte and even the politicians from Mindanao supported the decision of the Filipino leader.

They believe that Martial Law is the last card to solve the problem on terrorism in Mindanao.

Inuulan ngayon ng mura at batikos ang direktor na si Erik Matti mula sa mga tagasuporta ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.

Ito ay kasunod ng pagmmura rin ni Direk Erik sa “lahat ng bumoto” kay Duterte noong May 2016 elections.

Hindi malinaw kung ano ang pinanggagalingan ng post na ito ng direktor.

Ngunit hinala ng ibang netizens, may kinalaman ito sa pagdedeklara ni Duterte ng martial law sa buong Mindanao, bunsod ng kaguluhan sa Marawi City.

Ayon sa post ni Direk Erik sa Facebook at Twitter ngayong Miyerkules, May 24: “In case you haven't read my tweets before, I'll say it again: 'Sa lahat ng bumoto, pu**ng ina nyo!' Isa pa: 'Pu**ng ina nyo!'

PH is top economic performer in Asia.- Singapore-based international group

2:32:00 PM 0

The Philippines is “the top economic performer” in the region and the Duterte administration does not pose political risks that might make the country less attractive for investments, according to the ASEAN +3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO).

The Singapore-based international group, which released here yesterday its inaugural flagship report on the economic outlook for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), China, Japan and South Korea, is projecting regional gross domestic product to grow at 5.2 percent this year, with inflation under control despite global economic uncertainty.

AMRO chief economist Hoe Ee Khor, in a briefing on the report, was asked if there were factors that could alter the group’s projections for the Philippines.

“The Philippines is the top performer (in the region),” he said. “It is a very attractive destination for investments.”

Asked if he saw political risks from the new government of Rodrigo Duterte, Khor replied, “So far, not much... growth will continue.”

The risks for the country are mainly external, Khor said as he noted that the economy is heavily dependent on overseas workers’ remittances and business process outsourcing. Global economic growth has slowed down, protectionism is on the rise and US President Donald Trump has vowed to bring back American jobs and “buy American.”

“But we’re pretty confident that growth can be sustained at a high level,” Khor said as he pointed out that the Philippines has built strong buffers and the country’s financial reserves are “relatively high.”

Inflation is picking up and the current account deficit may be a cause for concern, he said, “but this is a good current account deficit because it’s sustained by investments.”

Khor noted that the Duterte administration has sustained sound economic policies of the past and international credit rating agencies have maintained the country’s investment grade.

Duterte to block renewal of ABS-CBN franchise.

7:07:00 AM 0
Image result for abs-cbn vs duterte

President Rodrigo Duterte is planning to pull the country’s biggest media company, ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp., off the air for failing to reimburse him for the campaign ad he paid for last year.

In a briefing in Malacanang, Duterte said that ABS-CBN’s public franchise to operate a national television station was hinged on its adherence to ethics and journalistic standards.

“Well, alam mo, itong ABS, ang franchise will be due pero hindi na kailangan ng extension because it has been there for about 25 years. Sabi ng batas, okay na. Only if you adhere to journalistic (standards). Ang ginawa ninyo sa amin, it’s estafa, swindling. Not only me but (Senator) Chiz Escudero, pati si ano. Marami pa ‘yan. Inotso niyo, putang ina harap-harapan magkolekta kayo tapos estafa ninyo kami,” said Duterte.

“I will file a complaint. Congress, no need to renew it. But to operate? That’s something else. So I will point this out, ‘yung basura ninyo then we’ll see. You are committing a crime,” he said.

When asked to clarify if he planned to block the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise which would expire on March30, 2020, Duterte said:”Yes. ung ganon ka na ano, you are engaged in swindling. For all you know, ilang kumpanya dito na nagbayad na na hindi ninyo pinalabas? If you operate an ABS-CBN tapos manloloko lang kayo ng tao, mag-swindling kayo, I have to stop you ‘di ba? Eh kung manloloko ka, anong gawin ko?”

Duterte is still sore at ABS-CBN for not airing his campaign commercial in reply to the anti-Duterte paid for by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV which ABS-CBN ran in the weeks before election day. He described the Trillanes-sponsored as “black propaganda” which used children to mouth attacks against him.
“They have a commitment. Kung ganoon, engaged in swindling, for all you know, may kumpanya nagbayad na di ninyo pinalabas. If you operate, manloko ka lang, kung swindling lang kayo, i have to stop you. Kung manloko ka, ano gagawin ko? Estafa, swindling,” Duterte said.

"Hindi ko nire-reject. To use reject... I simply declined," he added.

The university's Board of Regents has moved to offer Duterte an honorary degree, citing tradition. But the development has drawn criticism from several sectors, with the Office of the Student Regent opposing the plan.

"Honors are not deserved by a president whose regime killed thousands of citizens and leaders of progressive groups under Oplan Tokhang and Oplan Kapayapaan," the UP Office of the Student Regent said in a statement posted on Facebook.

"Honors must not be given to a president that declares all-out war against his people to quell their struggle for just and lasting peace, and reimposes death penalty to legitimize the killing of the poor."

The incoming head of the university's student council also decried the plan, calling Duterte "unworthy" of the honor.

Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle on Friday condemned the illegal drug trade and said it is "an evil" that is "slowly killing people," a report on Unang Balita on Wednesday said.

He said giving or selling drugs is like killing your neighbor.

"If I sell or give something that can destroy my neighbor, and I gained from it, it's like killing that person," he said in a homily in San Juan City at the launching of the "Sanlakbay sa Pagbabago ng Buhay" program for drug dependents.

However, Tagle said drug dependents should not be regarded as outcasts.
