MILITARISAYON SA MINDANAO, LUMULUBHA (tags)
Iniulat ngayon ng Pesante-USA, na ayon sa mga koresponsal nito, nagapapautloy ang brutal at todo-todong digma ang inilulunsad ngayon ng rehimeng US-Aquino laban sa mamamayan ng Mindanao. Ito ay alinsunod sa kontra-mamamayan at anti-nasyunal na programa nito na bigyang-laya ang pandarambong ng mga dayuhang kumpanya sa pagmimina, pagtotroso at komersyal na plantasyon sa likas na yaman ng isla. Ayon din sa mga nakalap na balita ng Pesante-USA na nakabase sa Los Angeles, mula Enero 2012, walang patumanggang pambobomba at pang-iistraping at iba pang paglabag sa karapatang-tao ang isinagawa na ng mga armadong galamay nito sa mga sibilyang komunidad.

Mammoth electoral fraud in Philippines elections: Padding and shaving (tags)
Nearly three weeks after election day, there are still no definitive results for the Philippine elections to the Senate and House of Representatives. Counting is still continuing and in a number of provinces it has not even begun. This has nothing to do with inefficiency and everything to do with ballot-rigging. The Philippines is one of the most corrupt ‘democracies’ in the world. During the 2004 presidential election, the victory of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was widely attributed to large-scale fraud. A tape was massively circulated of a conversation between the President and Virgilio Garcillano, head of Comelec, the national election commission. Arroyo was heard addressing him familiarly, ‘Hello Garci’, and the election chief proudly assured her that he would guarantee her a million-vote majority.
