The dual citizenship of Lopez makes him unfit to run a media outfit

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Being both American and Filipino already makes Gabby Lopez unfit to own a media outfit.

Dual citizenship is like having two homes. You'll need to take care of both thus dividing your attention, budget, preferences, etc.

A media outfit, being a political tool as well since their services can be bought in the form of ads or commercials, or biased guesting and other promotional advantages, is too powerful to be controlled by somebody who can readily switch sides whenever one is unfavorable or favorable.

Lopez needs to choose only one citizenship and allegiance since loyalty to two flags is conflicting.

 #ShutdownABSCBNPermanently is my stand. Btw, this is also because most of ABS-CBN's shows are dumbing down the masses and making their viewers too stupid to realize they are being brainwashed.

Only pure Filipinos should be allowed to own media entities. If you have more than one citizenship, it's similar to being a foreign owner (even when you are considered half-Filipino or half-American. We know how media is being used to manipulate our thinking, thus could be more dangerous if connected with foreign entities similar to Rappler. Look at how Maria Ressa stinks. Just as how Filipino - Chinese businessmen have an edge when dealing with the Chinese, we cannot be comfortable with Lopez being a US citizen too. Any other business is acceptable except media outfits and national security positions.

Please check the original provisions of the Anti- Dummy Law. It is a commonweath act, sir. Made in the 1930's. The part which has not been amended, specifically prohibits a person who is MARRIED or HAS A CONCUBINE who is a foreigner to sit in the Board of a corporation when the constitution or the law requires such position to be occupied by a Filipino. If the spouse is prohibited from being a foreigner- how much more to be a dual citizen?

"But even if he was granted Filipino citizenship in 2002 and dual citizenship in 2003, Immigration records tend to show that from 1986, when he first joined ABS-CBN, to 2002, Lopez was in fact an American citizen.

Article XVI, Section 11 (1) of the Constitution limits the ownership and management of mass media to Philippine citizens.

Lopez had been an American citizen for about 50 years until his application for Filipino citizenship was approved in 2002."

Lopez is also a US Citizen because he was born in USA. He has a dual citizenship. The Philippines recognized  dual citizenship pursuant to RA 9225 enacted during the time of Pnoy.   A person with dual citizenship is bound by laws of both countries, hence, he has a divided allegiance: to  RP and USA.  Considering that mass media is impressed with public interest as pointed out in the Constitution, it is debatable if a person with divided allegiance is within the context of a “Filipino Citizen” to own  and manage a  commercial mass media under Section 11,  Article XVI, of the Constitution!

Lack of Public Transportation Sacrifices Quarantine Protocols

Wazzup Pilipinas!

What a well planned back to normal. Thank you government!

They had months to think about this problem. Did they? Is there really a plan or they are still working on it? Was there a push from businessmen to save their businesses?

That's all very well thought through again. Not. Great planning and coordination. Not. Another failure looming.

No distancing sa military vehicle, sa mga jeep may separation, di ko makita kung alin tama dito. Is it because kapag government or pulis exempted sa social distancing and other quarantine protocols... ano pagkakaiba ng magkamag-anak na magkaangkas sa motor at yun grupo ng mga taong nagsisiksikan sa military truck?

Kapag gobyerno may gawa kahit labag sa guidelines okay lang.

Jeepneys are needed now and part of necessity and essential for work.

Who would have thought that opening up the economy wouldn't work without public transport? People who made these decisions supposedly have post grad degrees and come from elite Philippine schools..what a waste.

Because "elite" Philippine schools are the equivalent of community colleges anywhere else.

But look at their CVs and most likely you'll find post grad degrees from Western universities..so probably its not necessary..we just need people who actually can think properly.

Ang husay talaga ng mga namumuno sa gobyernong ito. Palibhasa nakakulong sa palasyo, laging tulog ... sa gabi gumigising, wala ng taong gising. Hahaha. Ngayon umuwi na yata sa probinsiya niya. Lalo na magkakaloko-loko, bahala na daw tayo sa buhay natin. Abandon ship na yata siya.

The good senator from makati is right. This government lacks foresight. Dada lang ng dada at bira ng bira. Pag tumama, thank you. Pag sumablay, ewan, di naman marunong tumanggap ng pagkakamali eh.

Nawala po kaya sa kanila yung pag-iisip using common sense? Dahil most of them ay hindi usually na-commute using public transport?

Unless our experts are obligated to commute daily, policy making re transport issues should not be designated to them.

The lack of common sense should not punish our commuters.

Sinisisi ang mga commuters? Eh bakit pa nagdeklara ng GCQ sa Metro Manila kung hindi naman pala handa sa pagdagsa ng mga manggagawa sa lansangan para sumakay? Passing the blame on the commuters im dumbfounded. Lagi na lang sinisisi ung common people as kapalpakan nila gumawa ng tama at strategic programs. Number 1 sign ng incompetencies. Blame game.

Toxic ng gobyerno natin. Di dapat kayo ng declare ng GQC na hindi handa sa pag balik ng mga tao sa trabaho nila.

At least pag lumobo ulit ang bilang ng cases, pwede isisi sa DOTr...just a thought...  naku, tayo na naman sisisihin.


Anti-Terrorism Bill: Weapon Against Critics of the Government

Wazzup Pilipinas!

President Rodrigo Duterte has certified a measure seen to toughen up the government’s anti-terrorism policies. Galawang gobyernong naninigurong walang kokontra at magrereklamo sa mga kapalpakan nila.

Did I miss something? Why did they come up talking about anti-terrorism in the height of pandemic?

The new bill also proposes 12 years of imprisonment for any person who "joins" designated "terrorist organisations or group(s)".

Further, the measure exempts law enforcers from liability for illegal detention or failing to present an arrested person to a court with the prescribed period.

In this world you have to understand that people in authority have a tendency to use authority for selfish  benefits. Happens all the time.



Fact check : Sa isang bansa kung saan mismong opisyal ng gobyerno ang numero unong pasaway at una pang lumalabag sa batas.. opisyal na silang may mga sinumpaang tungkulin magtaguyod, bansang kung saan ang mga anomalya ay hindi mabilis na sinisiyasat, kung saan ang mga tao ay basta basta nalang ikukulong at malala pinapatay.. yung bang hindi kana idinaan sa paglilitis.. binigti kana kaagad. MAHIRAP MAGTIWALA SA ISANG PATAS AT MAKATARUNGAN NA PAGPAPATUPAD NG BATAS.

It's not about the bill, but about trust.  If people trust that the bill will not be selectively used against them, they will probably be more agreeable.

This bill is in effect contradicting the 1987 Philippine Constitution Article lll Bill of Rights Section 4.

Section 4. No law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.

The anti-terror bill is being asked urgent because the government now has realized how badly they are and had been managing everything and sooner or later, people will become too restless and frustrated about how the Philippines has been for the last 4 years.

They are all protecting themselves not to be criticized for their wrongdoing. Ang mga Pinoy kawawa puwedeng sabihin nila na terrorista ka sa ano man oras.

Pag di natin pinigilan ang gobyernong to lahat tayo apektado nito, ako, ikaw, kapamilya mo, kaibigan mo, kamaganak mo, lahat tayo pwedeng maging biktima ng injustice sa ugali ng namumuno na power tripping na lahat gagawin masunod lang ang kanyang layaw dahil alipin din sya ng dayuhan lahat tayo paglalaruan lang nito - sisirain ang buhay nating lahat. Hindi ito anti or pro it's about us, TAYO mga PILIPINO - karapatang mamuhay ng mapayapa at ng maayos ng bawat isa. Buksan ang mga mata, tignan ang paligid, pinatunayan na to ng panahon - apat (4) na taon mas lumalala ang buhay natin ngayon, walang nagbago at walang pagbabago hanggang patuloy tayong mananahimik, matatakot at patuloy na magiging mangmang, nagiging alipin tayo ng sariling bansa, hindi makakakilos, hindi makakagalaw, nakatali, binabastos, ginagatasan, pinaglalaruan at inaalipin.

Again, this government is serving itself and protecting itself.

Ang asta ng gobyerno ay kahalantulad na rin ng china, kung kailan may kaguluhan isisingit nila un mga panukalang  alam nilang sensitibo sa bayan para mapadali ang pag pasa, isang pang sasamantantala sa kalagayan ng bayan.

What a coincidence China just approved the Hongkong anti-terror bill.

Are we going to be like China soon?
