Duterte appeals: Don’t put useless people in Senate.

President Duterte renewed his appeal to the public to choose the candidates who can make a change for the country and not those who are just talking but are really useless.

Duterte made the statement as he made a pitch for his 12 senatorial bets during the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Biñan, Laguna Saturday evening.
In his speech, Duterte said that his critics who are running for public office are talking against him just to keep themselves in the minds of the electorate.
“Ano naman nagawa nila? Hanggang salita. What makes you remember them? Extraordinarily na masabi mo na kailangan mong ibalik sila (What did they do? They are just all talk. What did they do extraordinarily that makes you remember them and makes you say that you have to put them back at the Senate)?” he said.
“Iwasan ninyo ‘yan, ‘yung walang ginawa kung hindi mag… Sabihin mo sa mga tao (Avoid those who have done nothing. Tell that to everybody),” he added.
Of his 12 candidates, five are eyeing a return to the Senate. These are senators Koko Pimentel, Cynthia Villar, Sonny Angara, and JV Ejercito; and Congresswoman Pia Cayetano.
“Ito ‘yung sabi ko na ibalik ninyo. Talagang wala kayo — ‘yang hindi tayo malugi. Hindi ka man ma-short diyan ‘yang mga bolador na puro arte lang (These are the ones who you should put back at the Senate. You will not lose with them. They are not like those who are all talk),” Duterte said.
“Alam mo matao ‘yang Pilipino kasi masa-masa tapos mag-idol-idol. Mag-idol kayo ‘yung totoo. Huwag kayong mag-idol na… Iyong talagang makita mo na may ginawa para sa ating bayan. Iyon ang i-idol ninyo. Iyon ang iboto ninyo (Filipinos are pro-people. It’s OK to have idols but idolize those who did something for our country. Vote for those people),” he added.
Duterte then hoped that the people would vote for his candidates, adding that voting for useless people in the Senate is a mortal sin for them.
“Alam mo sa totoo lang, mortal sin ‘yan sa inyo. Nandito, dinala ko na nga sa harapan ninyo ang mga tao. Totoo lang. Hindi ko ito iharap kung sabihin mo na may… (Let’s be real, it’s a mortal sin for you. Here, I brought people in front of you. I will not campaign for them if there is something wrong with them),” he said.
“Bakit ninyo ibigay ‘yang responsibility na mabigat para sa kapakanan ng bayan sa mga taong alam ninyo na inutil. Iyan ang ibig kong sabihin (Why would you give the big responsibility of shaping our country to those people who are useless? That’s what I mean),” he added.
Duterte has just completed his senatorial lineup for the 2019 midterm polls with the addition of former Interior Secretary Raffy Alunan.
Duterte is officially campaigning for Alunan, Pimentel, Villar, Angara, Ejercito, Cayetano, Maguindanao Representative Zajid Mangudadatu, former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, former Special Assistant to the President Christopher Go, former Political Adviser Francis Tolentino, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, and singer Freddie Aguilar.

WORD WAR: Aquino asked Cayetano to 'google’ all answers to his questions

Former President Benigno Aquino III and Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, composite photo from GMA Network and The continuing word war between former President Noynoy Aquino and Department of Foreign Secretary (DFA) Alan Peter Cayetano has filled social media with riddles and word plays, including ‘hairstyles’ only to prove whose administration poses the appropriate TRANSPARENCY in its dealings with Beijing on the disputed waters. To recall, Cayetano challenged Aquino on Tuesday to ask former DFA Secretary Albert Del Rosario of how well he handled ‘transparency’ with China under his watch. Cayetano’s latest remark against Aquino came in response to the latter’s suggestion that their methods of disclosure concerning Scarborough Shoal should be as “transparent as his hairstyle”. In an open letter dedicated to Aquino on Friday, Cayetano responded, "While we both lost some of our hair, your administration lost control of Scarborough and a

UST alumnus says panic due to inflation is because of false advertising of prices

UST alumnus and social media influencer Mark Lopez recently took to Facebook after he saw a lot of complaints from the Filipino people about the rising prices of good and products due to inflation. Mark Lopez / Photo from Facebook Reports have recently shown that there is a 6.4 rise in prices of products, goods and services in the Philippines. Lopez shared photos of grains of rice showing that they cost P120. The photos were allegedly taken in a store that sold rice in Pagadian City. He said that what causes panic is that people think that the P120 is the cost of 1 kilo of rice. But what he says is that actually the P120 is equal to a "salop" or 2.5 kilos. He said that this makes it P48 per kilo. " So yang P120 PER SALOP eh ang katumbas nyan ay P48 PER KILO pala ," he said. Screengrab from Facebook Lopez adds that this kind of advertising from market seller is actually what is causing panic towards the people and hatred towards the Duterte adminis
