Conspiracy against Duterte

Actually, there are two political forces either out to defend Rodrigo Roa Duterte or to oust him from the presidency.

First, the pro-Duerte supporters wonder why the anti-Duerte political and non-political forces are “hell-bent on forcing him out of Malacañang .”     

“Duterte is the duly- elected President of the Philippines and the most popular ever with an overwhelming 86 percent approval ratings, political observer Ms.Getsy Tiglao noted. “So again we ask who are the individuals that want him thrown out of the Presidential Palace?”

President Duterte himself suspects that Chief Justice Lourdes Sereno and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales are part of the cabal that want him ousted. He has asked both of them to resign, but they have refused to do so, Ms. Tiglao went on.

The President believes that they have allowed themselves to be used by certain anti-Duterte forces to discredit him and administration in order spark public outrage and eventually oust him eventually oust him from the presidency.

“In other words,” Ms. Tiglao wrote, “President Duterte finds them suspect and it‘s his prerogative to ask them to resign.”

“In any other country in the world --- where shame and wrong-doing are automatic career enders –the publlc officials would resigned immediately, especially it is the president himself is asking them to so.

“But not here in the Philippines,” Ms. Tiglao concluded, “where convicted mutineers can become a member of the senate, and where jailed narco-politicians continue to disrupt the body politic through surreptitiously release press statements. We are too free, to accommodating, for our on good!”

On the other hand, another political observer, Rappler contributor Walden Bello, took the opposite view about President Duterte.

Bello, who is National Chairman of Laban ng Masa and resigned as a member of Congress in 2015 owing to differences with then President Benigno S. Aquino over the latter’s double standards in the fight against corruption and other political issues, claimed that “it is downhill from here for Duterte.”

“In my view,” Bello wrote, “Duterte, the instinctive political that he is, has lost moral momentum...a reversal of fortune was triggered by the same phenomenon that has undone past ambitious authoritarians: overreach...”

“The polls may indicate that Duterte remains popular, “Bello went on, “but that does not mean people are willing to exhibit their allegiance to him, much less defend him in the crunch ...his supporters may be vicious on the net, but most of them are not street activists. These people are cyber warriors...who would probably be at a loss on how to chant and behave at a rally.”

“Popularity,” Bello noted, “is evanescent, and without an organized mass base, one is vulnerable to EDSA-type people power movements... Yet, worried by the growing opposition, Duterte may miscalculate and declare martial law, which may temporarily slow down his regime’s descent into crisis...”

Concluding his article, Bello pointed out that “politics is unpredictable, and things can either unravel very quickly from now on or we might be entering a more fluid period, where the regime, depending on circumstances, can have periods of retreat. But there is no doubt that the overall trajectory from now on is downhill.”

Quote of the Day: “Ineffectiveness in government is not new. Our recent Presidents were not the first to find out their authority diminished and their proposals impeded. The country has survived in past years, but this time the national problems are so deep seated and far reaching that the irreversible consequences of continuing drift could alter our national future.” – Anon.
