President Duterte must be, indeed, your ultimate desperado.
Prohibited by the Constitution from seeking reelection, he is running for vice president instead.

Duterte said he prefers to act like a "dictator" to be able to sustain the country's progress.

Krixia Subingsubing September 22, 2020

Using the Marcos playbook to stay in power
Philippine Daily Inquirer April 23, 2021
In the news item “More netizens join call for Duterte’s resignation” (4/20/21), more than 60,000 signatures—and still counting—are said to be supporting the call for President Duterte to step down due to his administration’s dismal performance vis-à-vis the pandemic and China’s almost total invasion of the West Philippine Sea, which now seems irreversible because of his own declaration to the whole world that he is “inutil” to do anything about it.

Coco levy fund scam: Gold for the corrupt, crumbs for farmers
Camille Elemia January 21, 2017
Part 1: Many coconut farmers have died waiting in vain, and with them went the hope they would one day reap the 'rewards' of what's seen as among the biggest scams of the century.
The 3 are among the 3.5 million coconut farmers, earning an estimated P16,000 annually and belonging to the country’s poorest of the poor. They are victims of the coco levy fund scam from 1971 to 1983 under the Marcos administration, with collected taxes amounting to P9.7 billion.
These farmers were taxed by the government, only for their payments to be used by former president Ferdinand Marcos and his alleged cronies, Eduardo "Danding" Cojuangco Jr, Juan Ponce Enrile, and some others, to invest in and buy businesses for their own benefit.

Look in High quality the Video from the article


The politics of the coco levy scam: From Marcos to Noynoy Aquino
Camille Elemia January 22, 2017
PART 2: More than the long, arduous fights in court for the coconut levy funds, the main battleground is in Malacañang and Congress, where politics comes into play.
The controversial coco levy fund began under former president Ferdinand Marcos in 1971 when he and his cronies enacted a law that imposed taxes on coconut farmers’ products.
But more than 4 decades since then, coconut farmers have yet to receive their "promised rewards." What happened to the billions of pesos of coco levy funds under each administration?


Return coco levy to farmers? Duterte's promise and political will
Camille Elemia January 23, 2017
PART 3: Will the coconut farmers, among the country's poorest of the poor, finally claim what is rightfully theirs as promised by the President?
It's been a promise made in every presidential campaign – that government would finally return the money to coco farmers. Yet, almost 45 years since former president Ferdinand Marcos and his cronies, including Eduardo "Danding" Cojuangco Jr, imposed coco levies or taxes on coconut products, farmers have yet to see and feel the “reward” promised them.

July 14, 2020 - To-day 2021: Sorry, but many of the links going to Rappler.com are down.
We have asked Rappler - Look: 14-07-2020 Rappler responsed that all links soon will be up again!
We and others have several times since July 14, 2021 ask by mail to Rappler about when we can expect the links are redirected and work again
To-day, 2021 STILL NO RESPONSE at all from Rappler!
We have decided to let some of these dead links be, because so you can use the link-subject for searching for another link with that subject!
We can no longer recommend anybody to link to rappler.com anywhere! - NOW 21 May 2021 we have deleted more than 1000 dead links to rappler.com and a little after a little we are deleting all the last dead links from Rappler - Never trust a promise from Rappler!

You will get no response of all these kinds of mails:

Mail sent from a "Free mail" e.g. like gmail, outlook.com, iCloud, Yahoo, AOL etc. because of too much SPAM. All these "Free mails" end in the SPAM-filter. Sorry: We response only mail sent from domains or ISP-domains.

In NO way, we can´t help you to get a job e.g. Au-pair or finding a comming spouse, or asking us to donate to ???, so don´t write asking for such kind of help or try to sell us ???

We don´t sell, hire out or book for anything! - We are NOT a company

We can´t help to get any kind of "papers - licenses - certificates", adoption or ????! - We are NOT any kind of an agency, authority, church or ???

The IPs used for ALL THAT KIND of above "spam-mail" to us will be reported to ISP and BLOCKED

Amateur contra Professional

If there´s wrong spelling and grammar, so please inform me, so I can correct!
You have to remember, that everything is easy, when you can and know how to do, maybe it´s very simple for you
a science for other
in many situations other can - know something, they think are simple, but you think it´s a science....
All you find here is our home-made web-sites, that are just an old amateur´s work, and I don´t know much about it, but would so much like to learn e.g. making much better web-sites ..... in spite of my age!
Do you find anything, which maybe is wrong in what I have written, wrong spelling etc. - and also in the way I have made the web-sites (I´m not super to do that), so I will be more than glad for getting help from you to correct the wrong thing and I´m still hoping, that the pages can be a help for some of you.... but
just give the remarks: "That´s wrong - That´s not right - That´s not working"
and if the economy can, we are ready to pay for your HELP.

God Bless you & Many regards
