It is another year and the Poong Messiahd (a pun on the word Messiah and the tagalog word may sayad, which means crazy), the great overlord of death, Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Dutertards (Duterte fanatics) and the bobotantes (stupid voters) held his second SONA (State of the Nation Address) or hate speech because he thinks its cool to be bad-ass and idiots like the drama.
I will take everything into consideration and see what matters or what have you. I didn't listen to the actual speech because believe me it's very hard to understand the accent, enunciation of the Mahal na Nazeraan (a pun on the Black Nazareen and sira, wich also means crazy).
Sumaatin nawa ang banal na putangina. (May the holy son of a bitch be with us.)
Following is a full transcript of that SONA, as delivered:
Kindly sit down. Thank you for your courtesy.
When I was a member of Congress, I… my seat was over there. The seat… the lady with a violent — not violent but rather violet dress… seated. But I was always absent, together with the Speaker and Tonyboy Floirendo, who is still absent until today. [LAUGHTER] And that started… Ay nandiyan ba? Sorry. But his propensity started almost 17 years ago when we were members of the 11th Congress.
Here he is proud to be always absent. He got paid for being absent. As if that is a skill similar to what Manny Pacquiao has been doing consistently since he became a politician. So being lazy is a virtue for Duterte. Also his joke is lame. Politicians have no sense of what a good joke is.
Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III and the members of the Senate; Pantaleon Alvarez, the Speaker, and the members of the House of Representatives; Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo; former Presidents Fidel Ramos, Joseph Estrada, and former President Gloria Arroyo; Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno of the Supreme Court and the members of courts; Archbishop [Giuseppe] Pinto and the distinguished guests of the diplomatic corps; Secretary Salvador Medialdea and the members of the Cabinet; my fellow workers in government; my countrymen:
He starts greeting all the corrupt politicians of the land. I wonder why there seems to be a special emphasis on Gloria Arroyo?
When I took my oath of office a year or so ago, I knew that our country was reeling from a multitude of problems. That day, there was euphoria in the air, resulting from a successful campaign. And the thought that dominated my being was to make good on my promise to the people to bring change in government, not a change that is passing but a change that can survive the test of time.
The feeling of winning an election just because he was able to project the better action star position that is loved by many Filipinos. He is still in delusion that his rule will be of pure change that is good. I am sure he feels proud to know how gullible and stupid the Filipino mass is. And he will get away with doing many things.
Although I still had to know the magnitude and gravity of the problems, my feeling then was that, equipped with political will and braced by a concerned citizenry, those problems would eventually be bested by us. It was only a matter of determination and collective action. It was only a question of time.
He is saying that he is more motivated by his personal will and he will do everything as he deemed fit. It is only a question of time when the mass will realize the mistake.
For as I saw it then as I see it now, there is no problem in the world which can stop the march of a people with unflinching and tenacious determination. That was how euphoric – euphoric – it has been.
Indeed it is hard to stop the blind mass from doing the things they expect are true and right. Regardless of the consequences it may have on the rest of the population and the country. It is an interesting triumph of the traditional politician.
Early on, I felt that if change was to be meaningful, it had to start with those occupying the highest positions in government because change that comes from below is more transitory than permanent. And I was aiming for permanence. Let change trickle down from [top to] bottom.
Change has been the currency of promise for many politicians. It is like praying for someone who needs help. You think you are helping and doing something but in reality there is nothing. People wanted a person who will say they will impose change because they cannot do it themselves. Thus these are nothing but empty words.
It has to be a change that is not confined merely to the replacement of people by people, but a change in the people’s attitude, disposition and work ethic.He wants everyone to agree with him and to change in the way that he thinks is right with impunity and love of what is not ethical.
Sadly, although we knew years ago that what was needed or [what we] ought to do, we did not do [it] because our idea of government was parochial and we could not rise above family, ethnic, and clan loyalties as well as loyalty to friends and co-workers. No one wanted to be a snitch. That is why we are one in saying that genuine change is what this country truly needs.He is stating some facts in here. The idea that the Filipino cannot go beyond their family and tribal group. That we cannot go against our own kababayan o kaprobinsya. But surely Duterte uses this because of his fear and insecurity with imperial Manila. In short, this is a hugot.
I believed then, as I believe still, that progress and development will sputter if criminals, illegal drugs, illegal users of drugs are allowed to roam the streets freely, victimizing, seemingly with impunity, the innocent and the helpless. Worse yet, there were times in the past when the protectors of the people were themselves the perpetrators of the very crimes they were tasked to prevent or suppress. It is ironic as it is madness.
|This bullshit again? Please!|
I have learned that economy surges only when there is peace and order prevailing in places where investors can pour [in] their capital and expertise. I have learned from my experience in Davao City that investor confidence [is] bolstered and fortified only if a potent force and mechanism for [the] protection of local and foreign investments are in place.I am not sure if this is true but indeed if there is peace, business will prosper but the means here is questionable. Again the experience of Davao is not something that can be applied to the whole country. For example, Makati has improved a lot without following the Davao way. And Makati remains one of the richest area in the Philippines. So he needs to look for better models that does not use violence but I am sure he will not do that because that takes time and he is lazy. And he thinks he is such a genius and cannot be wrong.
That is why, I have resolved that no matter how long it takes, the fight against illegal drugs will continue because that is the root cause of so much evil and so much suffering [applause]. That weakens the social fabric and deters foreign investments from pouring in. The fight will be unremitting as it will be unrelenting.Because the war on drugs no matter how long it takes is not a good solution. The root cause of evil is not drugs. Where he got this idea. I don't know. Maybe he got some fake news from Martin Andanar and Mocha Uson. What is wrong is assuming that the cause of evil and suffering is drugs.
Despite international and local pressures, the fight will not stop [APPLAUSE] until those who deal in it understand that they have to cease, they have to stop because the alternatives are either jail or hell. [applause] And I will make sure, very sure that they will not have the luxury of enjoying the benefits of their greed and madness.
So with the shock of the world and some of the people, Duterte is determined to brush all criticism aside by mocking those who do not agree. He insists that his way or nothing else. He also assumes like as always that he cannot be wrong and those who disagree are deluded and wrong. He wants complete obedience to his so called stupid will.
I do not intend to loosen the leash in the campaign or lose the fight against illegal drugs. Neither do I intend to preside over the destruction of the Filipino youth by being timid and tentative in my decisions and actions. [APPLAUSE]Because in reality Duterte has no other plans. He has no policy for anything. He just wants to be the bad-ass king who tell people to do things and to worship his ass. Again he hides under the collective non-existent Filipino youth that is slowly drowning in stupidity and ignorance. Of course, the Duterte governments wants the population to remain stupid and ignorant. He assumed again he is doing it for the youth but its all about him.
To the critics against this fight, your efforts will be better spent if you use the influence, moral authority and ascendancy of your organizations over your respective sectors to educate the people on the evils of illegal drugs instead of condemning the authorities and unjustly blaming for every killing that bloodies this country.Again he assumed that criticism is going against him. He doesn't like that. He just wants everone to bow down and do what is told. The slow death of democracy replaced by democrazy. He also think that the indoctrination of the war on drugs is the utmost good there is. He also gets bonkers when told that murder is wrong. Well, murder is wrong no matter what excuse you have. It will never be right.
But don’t get me wrong. I value human life the way I value mine. Each life that is snuffed out translates into future generations lost. It is like cracking the acorn from which an oak tree grows – which, in turn, produce the seeds to complete the cycle of [life in] perpetuity.
I am sure he is using another sense of the word human. His definition of human means those who agree with him, is not poor, a corrupt politician, and misogynistic assholes. Those are what humans are to Duterte. He doesn't even seem to care if children are killed as part of the drug war. Maybe for him they are not even human. He doesn't value life. He only values the rich, big time criminals and corrupt politicians and of course his disgusting family. No wonder Kitty Duterte is as ugly as fuck. No wonder his children act like assholes. Look at Duterte. The seeds don't fall far from the tree of darkness.
There is a jungle out there. There are beasts and vultures preying on the helpless, the innocent [and] the unsuspecting. I will not allow the ruin of the youth, the disintegration of families and the retrogression of communities, forced by criminals whose greed for money is as insatiable as it is devoid of moral purpose.
It is easy to point fingers at others without reflecting on oneself. Duterte likes to call names on people who goes against his war on drugs. The only program he has in mind. Because in the end he was not able to do most of the things he promised on his first SONA. Again you have the boring talk about protecting something he doesn't really care about.
Neither will I be immobilized into inaction by the fear that I will commit an act that will expose me to public condemnation or legal prosecution. You harm the children in whose hands the future of this Republic is entrusted, and I will hound you to the very gates of hell. [APPLAUSE]
He wants to prove he is doing something and nothing because if we take out the war on drugs. It will be obvious that he is doing nothing. The economy is slowing down and all the efforts of the previous presidents have been reduced to nothing. Again he is hiding under the name of children.
That is why I ask you to join me in this fight against illegal drugs and all forms of criminality.
He is encouraging people to kill and demonize other people. We are back to the dark ages.
The government, equipped with legal authority, and you, with the moral ascendancy over the sector you represent, can do so much, and hopefully eradicate this social scourge that plagues us no end.
The government and the people must work hand in hand but I am sure what ever moral or ideals Duterte has is not something that is true and values life. It is not life affirming but death affirming. The social scourge we must purge is the normalization of death. Drugs is not a plague but a symptom of a disease called poverty and miseducation.
Look beyond your biases, your prejudices, your ambition, your political agenda. The search for change will begin and end only when we look into ourselves and find it within.
If you actually do this in an objective way. You will find that the change Duterte wants is not something that is good for the country. It is only good for him and his friends.
Today, a multitude of problems confront us. No sooner is one problem solved [when] another surges forth in its place. But we will not be disheartened. We will not be cowed. We will not be overwhelmed.
Problems have always existed since the beginning of human existence. But the fact remains that Duterte is determined and will not stop until blood covers the Pasig River instead of garbage. With the help of blind followers and ass lickers he feels justified. He never listens to the people.
It is during trying times and troubled events that the resilience, perseverance, and determination of the people are tested. The Filipino is no stranger or neophyte to situations like the one we face today. We can, and we will, overcome as we did countless times in the past, [but] only if we work together towards a common goal.
It is again assumed that we are in shit when in fact we have improved slowly over the years. Duterte uses this as an excuse to say we need to change and be determined to do the evil changes he wants. He appeals to the strength of the Filipino to endure things and now we must endure the torture and murder of our very own country as Duterte hands over our country to China and Russia to be raped. Our common goal must not include drugs and murder of people. We are not simpletons. But the majority of the voting population is.
Sad to say, despite all efforts, peace, especially in the Island of Mindanao, continues to elude us. But of course, it is not the peace of the dead but the peace of the living that we seek. Peace flits away like a butterfly when you try to snatch it by the wings. And our pursuit of peace continues.
Of course, he is sad because not all people are stupid and blind followers. He wants the peace and quiet for rich and the privileged from which he belongs. He just pretends to be poor and acts barbaric just to look the part. And people believe this shit. He wants peace be achieved by bloodshed.
The red insurgency has been with us for decades; the Muslim issue, for centuries.
This is a red herring. I don't even know why this is mentioned.
So much time has lapsed, so many lives have been lost, and so much destruction has been wrought. But peace eludes us still. Sometimes I am almost tempted to conclude that peace might not be able to come during our lifetime. But believe me, it will not be for want of trying.
But again this peace will not come. You cannot fuck for virginity and you cannot have peace with murder and rape.
And I will persist in our goal of attaining peace to the last day of this administration and maybe even beyond although in a different capacity. [APPLAUSE]
It is because the war on drugs is a never ending process of hate, murder and evil. The more it happens the deeper the wounds and the more hate is generated. Thus is the evil karma created by this government.
There is rebellion in Mindanao. The extremists have declared it their purpose to establish a caliphate within Philippine territory along the teachings and beliefs of [the] Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or otherwise known as ISIS.
The existence of rebels groups just shows the incapacity of Duterte and his military on how to handle rebels. The war on drug has eaten so much of the needed man-power to have the check on what is happening with the Muslims and also the NPA. The government seems to have lost its so called intelligence. Maybe they should stop wasting so much money on travelling.
The battle of Marawi has dealt a terrible blow to our quest for peace, especially now that an alien ideology and a radical shift in purpose have been injected into the local setting.
The battle of Marawi is just a consequence of an ignorant government who doesn't give a shit about what really matters. Despite coming from that area. Duterte is still in his bubble of security and just simply points fingers.
I declared martial law in Mindanao because I believed that that was the fastest way to quell the rebellion at the least cost of lives and properties. [APPLAUSE]
Duterte declared Martial Law because he have always wanted to do it. Remember he is a die hard fan of Marcos. He wants absolute powers. He needs a lot of excuse just to abuse power and be the asshole that rules the idiotic majority. I am sure he is happy with all of this because he needs the excuse of drugs and this recent battle.
At the same time, the government would be adequately equipped with the constitutional tool not only to prevent the escape of rebels who can easily mingle and pretend to be civilian evacuees only to re-group in another place to fight another day but also to prevent them from spreading their gospel of hate and violence in the rest of Mindanao.
This is the time when Duterte conveniently states the law and quotes from the law. He wants the wanton murder of the rebels because he is such a bad-ass. And yet later on he will pretend to be having dialogue with the Bangsamoro. Isn't the words of Duterte already the gospel of hate and violence as well?
Martial law and the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus enable the military to arrest, detain, and question suspected members and sympathizers of the rebellion similar to what happened to the parents of the Maute brothers.
This will also be an excuse to make shit about who is what. And to justify things he have already connected it with his favorite topic in the universe - drugs.
As president, I am reiterating my unwavering support and commitment to the soldiers of our Armed Forces and the members of our police force, [APPLAUSE] those who are on the ground and in the battlefields, and those who are risking their lives for our country and our democracy. I have your backs.
I don't believe that Duterte supports the military and the police. He is just using them for his own purposes and makes it be that he is doing them a favor. No wonder the most of his trips are with military bases. He is wooing the military but I am sure they are not as stupid as the moron majority. Because in the end Duterte nor Dela Rosa will not die but the poor soldiers being thrown at the fire. Duterte thinks he is an absolute monarch with an army of his own. The military and the police belong to the people.
To those who oppose and think that all these efforts are out of order, I hold myself – me and me alone should be responsible. [APPLAUSE]
This is a statement that has no meaning. It is like feeling bad for the abuses of certain people but doing nothing about it. But again he also said that he will pardon himself because he is the president. His threats are empty.
The people of Marawi need help. Caught in the crossfire between government troops and Muslim extremists, they have been through hell and we need to help them rise and move forward.
If Marawi needs help. They can only expect it from the people and not Duterte and his macho government. So far how the military is being used is just silly and brings more damage than good. Duterte wants to escalate things more so he can declare Martial Law over the whole of the Philippines.
If we cannot provide for the poor and the needy who are many, then we will not be able to keep from harm the rich who are few.
And yet the government has failed to provide for the poor. The economy is crashing and prices are always going up. The only privilege is for the upper one percent that the government cannot even touch. This quote is also stolen from John F. Kennedy, "If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity."
At the vanguard of our struggle for peace and order are our armed forces and police. They are the silent heroes who risk their lives every day for our country’s security.
These are said to please the military and police. A lie to make them feel better as they are being fed alive to monsters.
In recognition of their valor, we have crafted a program to provide them with comprehensive social assistance, including financial, should they meet harm in the performance of their duty. For the family left behind by those who fell or are rendered totally disabled in the line of duty, we shall provide shelter, health care assistance, education, and employment.
That is my way of telling our troops: Never fear, do your duty. I stand behind you. So does this government and all its agencies. [APPLAUSE]
This idea is quite old and previous presidents have done a much better job than Duterte. They have carefully thought of ways and means that will not put the lives of the military and the police in danger. The president is indeed behind the soldiers because he fears for his own life. He just sees the military as his pawns to play with.
To decisively address insurgency and terrorism, we are working doubly hard towards [achieving] a stronger and more credible national defense system for the country. We continue to strengthen the defense capability of the AFP as a deterrence against terrorists, lawless elements, and other threats.
Huh? So far we do this by getting stuff from China. While denying the help of the US.
My fellow citizens: What I have said so far about the events in Marawi and its neighboring environs is only a part of a looming problem, which will cut across all classes and all sectors of society and eventually affect the entire country from north to south, from east to west, given the fact that Mindanao supplies a great part of our country’s food requirements.I think its not just a looming but problem but a persistent problem made worse by the incompetency of the government and its military. But so far the problem only affects the people of Marawi and not even the whole of Mindanao.
I refer to climate change, which could bring drought and long dry spells affecting food production in Mindanao, given the fact that Mindanao is unusually warming. I ask all agencies involved in food production to look into this and act accordingly.
|What the hell? Am I supposed to sign this shit?|
Also, I am appealing to all our legislators to immediately pass the National Land Use Act, or NALUA, [APPLAUSE] to ensure the rational and sustainable use of our land and our physical resources, given the competing needs of food security, housing, businesses, and environmental conservation.
Good point. I think the government should focus on this rather than murder.
Ours is a rich country. Wealth that this country is endowed with [is] a gift from God to be utilized for the [people’s] welfare and the common good. I do not believe that this gift was given to us to be merely viewed or appreciated, but to be extracted from the earth and utilized to make life worth living.
The old age saying that we are rich, puzzles me. If we are rich then why are there so many poor people? I don't understand it. Is it just the Pinoy pride thing? Now Duterte remembers God because it is convenient.
That is why I say that it is not enough that we mine this wealth. What is more important is that we convert the raw materials thereof into finished products for international and local purposes. [APPLAUSE] That way, it will not only be the few who are the rich but also the poor who are many who will benefit therefrom.
If we mine these things that means nature will be destroyed. Mining is always invasive no matter how small or big it is. But again who gets to control everything? It is always the rich. To which Duterte and his family belongs.
Therefore, I call on our industrialists, investors [and] commercial barons to put up factories and manufacturing establishments right here in the Philippines to process our raw materials into finished products. [APPLAUSE]
That would be wonderful but is it safe? I mean anyone can be murdered these days. Foreigners are susceptible to be abused and extorted by our dearly beloved corrupt government officials and the police. Great idea but it needs to be implemented well.
At this point in my administration, if possible, we shall put a stop to the extraction and exportation of our mineral resources to foreign nations [APPLAUSE] for processing abroad and importing them back to the Philippines in the form of consumer goods at prices twice or thrice the value of the original raw materials foreign corporations pay for them.
Contradiction! He just said it will be for local and international purposes. What is it Duterte? Although I like the idea that prices should be fair.
However, in the extraction and utilization of these resources, extreme care must be exercised [APPLAUSE] that we do not recklessly and needlessly harm the environment. [APPLAUSE] Responsible, regulated and sustainable development is what we advocate and require. The protection of the environment must be made a priority [APPLAUSE] ahead of mining and all other activities that adversely affect one way or another. And this policy is non-negotiable. [APPLAUSE]
Again all mining is invasive. Either you get the resources or not. I think Duterte did not even do research. Why put also much value on nature? Does he really care? I am sure he doesn't. It is just nice to say, "Save the environment." And how is it nature is non-negotiable but human life is?
I sternly warn, I am warning all mining operations and contractors to refrain from the unbridled and irresponsible destruction of our watersheds, forests, and aquatic resources. You have gained much from mining, we only get about 70 billion [pesos] a year, but you have considerably neglected your responsibility to protect and preserve – and even the tax, it’s about five percent – environment for posterity.
I am holding all mining companies and its officials responsible for the full and quick clean-up, restoration [and] rehabilitation of all areas damaged by mining activities, and the extension of all necessary support to the communities that have suffered mining’s disastrous effects on their health, [APPLAUSE] livelihood, and environment, among others.
Duterte is now demonizing the mining industry because he is such a saint. Some of the facts are true but they are now being used to make him look good. Because he is such a bad-ass motherfucker.
Ganito ’yan eh. Medyo alis muna ako diyan sa… Sasakit ang mata ko diyan sa yawa na ‘yan. [LAUGHTER]
Here comes the fun part. He got bored with reading the script. He wants to entertain his Dutertards and fellow criminals at government.
Alam mo, you have the mining. I have to grant you a mining because you have complied with all the requirements of the law. And I cannot… I’d be subject to a mandamus if everything is perfect and you have every right to mine. But in doing so, you destroy the rivers, you destroy the streams, from which the poor people fish – halwan or mudfish – and that is protein for the day for them.
This is just ranting and again demonizing mining.
Ngayon makita mo naman, not only Gina Lopez gave you a clear picture of what was happening horrendously. Nakita mo kay Ted Failon – ’yung kay Ted Failon, talagang nanood ako, dalawang beses. And I realized that I have to do something about it as a Filipino. [APPLAUSE]
This is how Duterte does research. He watches TV. And he got information from ABS-CBN. How ironic. Now he feels bad. Or he only cares about what will happen to his family.
Alam mo, okay na ’yung mining. Subsidiary ka lang ng isang another giant corporation or you’re a sister company of a telecommunication. Hindi kayo magugutom. But look at the picture shown to you. For once, they behaved correctly ang ABS-CBN. Tingnan mo ‘yung pelikula ni Ted Failon. I salute him for coming with it. [APPLAUSE]
Mining OK. Mining is not OK. Then, mining is OK. But, mining is not OK. Duterte make up your mind!
You see the palayan. Ang palayan tumuyo at ang soil nag-crack. So the farmers cannot eat anymore. They are reduced to the garbage of what you can get there, salvage anything and sell it to the scrap. Ganun ang nangyari sa Pilipino. Hindi ko kayo kalaban. As a matter of fact, you give government almost 70 billion. Pero actually maliit lang ‘yan.
From mining to draught. Yes, draught is bad. But I think this should be address by the National Irrigation Agancy. I think Duterte should get ideas there not from things he just watches on TV. We need good data not chismis. Also not all farming is affected by mining.
Ngayon, nakikita ninyo itong mga palayan na tumutuyo and the rivers wala ng isda. The only source of protein. Hindi ka naman pwedeng mag-hunting. May makita kang eagle diyan, barilin mo, preso ka. Pakainin mo ’yung… Saan mo ipa…?
This is Reductio ad absurdum. There could be many reasons why rivers dry. There are many reasons why fishes die in rivers. For example, most rivers are dead because of pollution that comes mostly from communities and not just the mining industry. Also hunting is bad because we don't need to do that. He seems to be also an advocate of hunting animals.
Try to go out. Sumama tayo – kayo sa akin. And try to see how hard it is for them to survive. Now ito ang… Gusto mo ganito ang pangyayari, tutal sobra-sobra naman ’yang pera ninyo, adre, sa totoo lang. Mayor ako eh. I can look at your corporate earnings, your sister company, I can pierce the corporate identity, kayo rin pala. And even diyan sa mga newspaper. When you are not supposed to… You know, ’pag newspaper ka you are supposed to be 100 percent Filipino. And yet when you start to pierce their identity, it is pala fully owned by Americans. Ganun ang nangyari eh. It’s just a matter of piercing the…
I don't understand the point in here. Also he assumed that certain companies are not 100 percent pure because he has some hints. He should be able to back-up these data. He has excess money and power as former mayor. Why didn't he help those people? It seems he just watched them suffer.
So wala masyado ako… ABS[-CBN], Rappler kayo ba ‘yan? Have you tried to pierce your identity? And it will lead you to America. Do you know that? And yet the Constitution requires you to be 100 percent – media – Filipino. Rappler, try to pierce the identity and you will end up [finding] American ownership.
Rappler is one of the news agencies critical of Duterte. In here he tries to pull them down with his own fictional ideas. Because he hates people who hate him and he also hates America.
Mayaman na kayo, mga mining companies. Ito ang deal ko sa inyo: Either I will raise the taxes, ang kumikita niyan i-reserve ko to compensate for those who are suffering and in agony. [APPLAUSE]
And then he remembers the mining industry. If he raises taxes for the mining industry it will bounce back somewhere. Not too bright Duterte. Not too bight.
You have to come up with a substitute, either spend to restore the virginity of their source or I will tax you to death. [APPLAUSE] Kasi ‘yung taxes makuha ko, talagang ibubuhos ko. Ngayon, if you can make an arrangement, an inventory of the.. ’yung nasira, ’yung mga tao nagutom. Pati ’yung river nila wala nang makuha because… You know guys, kayong mga taga-Davao, we are not new to it. You want to see horror in your lifetime? Akong bahala.
Two weird choices for the mining industry. First you cannot restore the virginity of a source. Once something is broken. It is broken. Even nature. The other thing is heavy taxation. We all know that heavy taxation with a corrupt government doesn't go anywhere. Although it is fair that damages must be paid by the mining industry. Duterte must still consider things and not act on whim as always.
NPA [New People’s Army], huwag muna kayong magpagara-gara diyan, away-away, kay magpunta kami. Samahan ko sila. You stop your… puro hambog lang kayo diyan. Punta tayo doon sa Diwalwal, doon sa [inaudible] and I will show you the river. Up there at the source, it’s so pristine. But doon sa right at the start of the boundary, where the millings are started, the water there is not clear, it is not brown, it is black.
It starts with the NPA and then we have pollution. Is he saying that pollution is caused by the NPA as well?
Your one peso will win one million from me if I am lying. Kung gusto mo isama ko kayo bukas doon. Ngayon, ’pag tinarget tayo ng mga gagong NPA na ’yan eh problema natin ‘yan lahat. Sabay-sabay na lang tayo. Bakante ang presidency, bakante ang Senado pati ang congressman.
Even if you win this bet I am sure Duterte will not pay you. And the rest are just a mumble of ideas.
Pero totoo ’yan. You should visit the… even the first spade, even the first spade full of earth that you extract and throw it away [is] of no use. Itabi mo lang ’yan diyan eh because it’s an open pit. You dig and dig and dig… is already the first spade there is the decreasing of Mother Earth.
I guess Duterte is talking about the slow death of the planet. I don't understand the context of the spade. Maybe he is talking about digging a pit. But I don't understand how that is connected with the Mother Earth.
Alam mo ang isa pang galit sa mining? Si Speaker. He comes from a mining town, but he hates mining. Ako naman kasi, mga kaibigan ko ’yung iba, ’yung mga classmate ko mga vice president ng mining, magpunta sila dito… But it reduces into something – the damage that you have caused. It’s not about our friendship. It’s not about years of being in the same room. It’s not about being fraternity brothers. But it is something that… [RAISES HIS RIGHT HAND] Ganun ‘yan eh.
This is just a rephrase of what Erap said before that he will do any favors for anyone. But knowing how fraternities think and act he is lying. Most of his friends have already benefited from him being a president.
Alam mo, ’yung martial law, I am not so much endeavored diyan. Sabihin ninyo na hindi ninyo ibigay? Okay lang. Wala akong problema diyan. Maski sabihin ninyo na tama na, okay lang. Then I will still fight. The way I will fight the war – if it is not acceptable to the normal of civilian conduct, then I am sorry because I am not fighting a civilian war, I am stopping violence and rebellion. [APPLAUSE] Hindi talaga ako…
So if he can deal with the problem without Martial Law then why declare it? In here he uses the abstract idea that he is here to protect people. That what he does have value. His act only promotes more violence and rebellion.
Ibigay man ninyo o hindi, para sa akin wala. Because ako, I do not intend to go beyond my term. As a matter of fact, mas gusto kong barilin ako doon sa likod. Eh hindi masyado ako itong bilib itong trabahong ito? Akala ko bilib ako. Pagdating ko ah l****, sakit ng ulo. [APPLAUSE]
But he cannot accept form of criticism. He is also scared to die.
Totoo. Kayo nakikinig kayo. Wala akong pinirmahan ni isa, putang ina ’yan na para pagkain. Pagkain. Pagkain sa opisina, eh bayaran ninyo ‘yan. Maglabas ako. I do not collect anything. I do not remember. I do not sign anything there until now. Wala akong allowance wala akong tinatanggap lahat except my salary. Tapos dalawang pamilya pa ang maghati.
I have no idea what Duterte is ranting in here. I don't see any point about getting food at an office and not paying. This sounds like an in house language.
Anong masama niyan? [APPLAUSE, CHEERS] Sige kayo pakpak diyan. Lahat naman tayo. [LAUGHTER] I can count my… Not even the two hands, one hand lang na exempted sa rule na ’yan. Dalawa, tatlo, apat, lima. Lokohin ninyo ako, ba’t tayo pa ba ang maglokohan? Just because this is Congress it has to be a secret, secret. Maniwala kayong mga ito? Pareho kaming lahat niyan. Ayaw pa tumawa kunwari. [LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE]I don't get this part of the joke either. It seems to be talking about fooling people and being fooled. Nothing funny in here.
So I will increase the taxes. Then I will think of something that will compensate or make up for the damage or at least the income restored. Otherwise, I’ll have to stop mining. I will ask you to stop it. It’s not good. We are a small group of islands. Hindi naman marami. The coastal – marami ‘yan kasi. Marami paikot-ikot, but we are in a contiguous territory. Maliit lang tayo.He went back on track about the rising of taxes as a means to stop mining. Then goes on to talk about how little islands we have. Again I don't understand the idea. I mean what has the increase of taxes got to do with the size of our islands?
You must remember that there are so many billions of the future generations waiting in this stratosphere. Ang gusto ninyo, para hindi na kayo mandamay, huminto na kayo ng ano. Then let us go to… Because this will not end here. How about the billions and billions and billions of Filipinos who will come after us? Kawawa naman. They’ll have to scratch Mother Earth to eat.
He pretends he cares about the future generations of the planet. But I am sure he only cares about his family and friends. He don't care about poor people now. How am I supposed to believe that he really cares about the future of the Philippines.
By this time kung walang upheaval, no regeneration will occur. We are almost like talagang ginaganun natin ang – maliit na lang ang makuha nila. But maawa naman kayo. Makikita mo ’yung apo mo kung ganun mo na lang… Kung ganun mo na lang ’yung – embrace mo ‘yung apo mo sa pangalawang asawa. ’Yung isa ganun rin. Di ba? Di ba, sir? [LAUGHTER] Suntukin kita diyan ngayon. Liar ka.
He is clearly talking about his worries about his family in the future in here. The perspective is quite selfish. He should punch his face soon.
Finally, let me make this appeal to those directly engaged in mining. Declare your correct income. Pay your correct taxes. Believe me, your failure to do so will be your undoing and eventual ruin. [APPLAUSE]
Again pointing the evil on mining to hide his own. If we ask all politicians including Duterte to be transparent I am sure they will not. The same also goes for the mining industry.
Hindi na ako makatakbo. Matanda na ako. I don’t think I’ll even survive the five years. Pero pagka sinabi ko upakan kita, upakan talaga kita.
The gangster talk of Duterte, claiming he will not run. When in fact he have eaten up all the things he have said since became the idol of the stupid Pinoys. He can't even fight with rebels. How is he going to punch people? He is a weakling.
To our employees and officials of the LGUs tasked with monitoring these mining operations within their territorial jurisdictions, do your job without fear or favor. I [hold] you absolutely responsible for any misdeed or failure [by] the mining entities to comply – do not comply or comply with the guidelines, rules and regulations governing mining operations and activities within your area of responsibility. I mean it. Do not try to test my resolve. Absolutely, I have nothing to lose except my life.
If people in government have done their work then the environment would be fine. This proves that the Duterte government cannot do anything to stop mining. You simply cannot. Also am I feeling that he almost wants to encourage the LGU to abuse its power just to do what Duterte wants. Again claiming this for his own. Taking responsibility where he can't.
While we can control the acts of man, no one can control [or] stop the fury and rampage of weather gone wild. When nature fights back, it does so with a vengeance.
Sorry to blow your bubble Duterte. We can't control the actions of man. We can't even control the foul mouth of Duterte. We can't stop the police from murdering the poor. We can't stop nature. But we can do something. So far Duterte has not addressed anything real that would actually deal with the problem of climate change. Other than blame it on the mining industry.
|The evolution of the SONA|
We have seen the terrible toll that Super Typhoon Yolanda and the succeeding typhoons exacted in terms of human life and property. And we still have to recover from the beating that we got both during and in the aftermath of those mega typhoons.
Typhoon Yolanda is bad and people are still suffering. But now that the government only thinks about war on drugs. The poor people affected by Yolanda are again left off to fend for themselves. We need a country that is as prepared as Japan to face anything. To be able to stand up after a disaster. And not whine like a baby called Duterte.
Aside from droughts, tempests, and other problems taking shape which, according to DOST-Phivolcs, it is no longer just a distant possibility but a probability – earthquakes.
The series of damaging quakes in Leyte, Surigao, and nearby provinces and islands attest to this. We were told that it is no longer a question of “if” but a matter of “when.”
Thus, we need to act decisively and fast because the threat is huge, real, and imminent.
Yes, Duterte now you need to address this and stop this manic war on drugs which doesn't do anything.
Come to think of it really, they say that there is no perfect instrument or human acumen can really predict earthquake. I hope it will not come. Kasi kung magdating ’yung sabi nila ’yung “Big One.” I hope it will be just in the mountains and in the rural areas. Because if it’s right – sabihin nila tinatakot nila ang… media kasi… Nandito eh, in the speech, I reviewed it last night. I am calling [on] both houses of Congress to expeditiously craft a law establishing a new authority or department that is responsive to the prevailing 21st century conditions and empowered to best deliver enhanced disaster resiliency and quick disaster response.
He wishes for the earthquake to happen in the mountains and rural areas? Does he really care about the poor? Why not just keep everyone safe as it is supposed to? We also don't need a new government agency. We just need to empower the ones we have. Who is Duterte going to promote there? Mocha Uson?
While the law is [being] crafted with extreme urgency, we need to undertake immediate action to ensure disaster resiliency and effective response in the greater [Metro] Manila area, which is our country’s seat of governance, center of business, commerce, and the academe. Disaster resiliency of Metro Manila and the surrounding provinces is a matter of urgent concern.
Good point. Mobilize the military and police to help the people and not order them to murder people.
Iyon nandito ’yan, tinatakot nila dito because of the high-rise buildings and… Ilang tao ang nakatira diyan? Kung… Kaya kaya ito sa isang sinkhole? I mean if it cracks and it goes down, can we still manage to go up? God, huwag ngayon ha, kay nandito ako. Hintayin mo lang ’yan. Sila na lang. Sila dito nag-aaway. [LAUGHTER]
In house langauge and joke. No idea what Duterte is talking about.
I am directing the Cabinet Cluster on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management to immediately work hand in hand with the concerned LGUs, the private sector and the affected communities themselves, in undertaking disaster measures, antidotes.
We all need to act fast.
With all the foregoing said, what then is the state of the nation today?
Good job. I hope the fucking politicians will listen.
I will mince no words, and neither will I window-dress the situation we are in. Let me answer in two brief sentences. We are in for trouble because we live in troubled and uncertain times. And I fear that things might get worse before they become better. But like I said I hope we will cope. We hope and pray.
We do live in uncertain times. That dread when you can be killed and be labeled as a criminal just because Duterte will protect the police. How can we handle a bigger problem called natural disaster if our society is plagued by problems like the Duterte government and his culture of death?
The West Philippine Sea issue and federalism are matters that we have to tackle sooner or later.
How can we tackle the problem of the West Philippine Sea if Duterte doesn't know where it is? Will Duterte finally ride a jetski? How about the problem with China, which Duterte adores? Federalism is not a problem. We don't need it. The problem is that democracy is slowly being taken away from us.
On the other hand, despite our recent gains in improving the peace and order situation in the country, there is still so much to be desired and if we are to completely eradicate the menace of illegal drugs, criminality and corruption, we must do it.
We did not improve on peace and order. In fact, it got more dangerous for most people. Crime, corruption and drugs will always be there.
I therefore ask Congress to act on all pending legislations to reimpose the death penalty on heinous crimes – especially on the trafficking of illegal drugs.
We don't need a death penalty. Drug use is not a crime but a symptom of a greater problem that the Duterte Death Squad fails to see or even understand.
There is a shortage… No, no, no. There is a short clip of CNN about people in Massachusetts. Was it there? Iyong clip nila ang ipinakita. Tiningnan… Pakitingin lang… It’s repeated for almost every week yata ’yang mga short clips. Tingnan mo ’yung mga tao doon na hinayaan nilang mag… They are there. They live under the bridge. They are getting thin. They are doing nothing. Nakaganun lang sila tapos po-pose ng ano… And they are aplenty there. They do not work, wala.
No idea what Duterte is saying here. He is clearly making things up. And besides why is he talking about problems abroad? Shouldn't he also focus on poverty?
Tapos sabi ng UN… Is he here? Are you there? Iyong UN representative? Na sinabi mo na shabu will not affect the brain? Are you here? Raise your right hand, if you’re here. Do not worry. I will just… Do not – the word “delude” as into you… Iyong mga ano ninyo na – but we know every day that one family raped, dalawa and all are dead. Then you trivialize it with human rights and due process.
I am sure the UN didn't say anything that methamphetamine will not affect the brain. This is a strawman argument by Duterte. Also remember Duterte you are the one who is OK with rape. You are also the one who makes human rights and due process a fucking joke.
Okay ako niyan. When you go into an anger, when you burst with rage, okay ‘yan. But with so many killings as brutal and as cruel as what happened, if you add human rights and due process, you stink and your mouth smells. If you want to criticize, criticize, condemn the act, stop there. But do not give the excuse or do not make it trivial by saying human rights at least we’ll be protected…
Going on a rage is not OK. You can never justify any kind of murder with anything. the UN and other agencies are watch dogs and it is still the job of the government to implement the rule of law. Not to be the ones swinging the ax because human society has learned that doing such has not done anything positive. It just creates more problem. You cannot protect people if you keep on killing them.
Iyan ang pinakabuwang na magawa ng isang tao. When you criticize, stick on one topic. Then you find an event where you can talk about human rights and due process, but do not talk about it in the same time when there is a carnage and you begin to blabber, talk about human rights. Lalong nagagalit ang tao. Eh putang ina mo. May namatay na diyan. Akala mo kung sino ka. [APPLAUSE] What have you done in the name of human rights? Seventy-seven – you have the records. You can summon the police. Seventy-seven before I became president. All drug- related, seventy-seven thousand. And you trivialize that with a conference… At saka pumunta dito, ang tatanungin ’yung nasa presuhan na pinreso dahil nag – just imagine…
Duterte seems to be talking about himself in here. But the way he explains things are so confusing. The wording is just horrible and bad. You cannot murder one person because he murdered? What does that do? That is not due process. Vigilante justice is awesome on TV but is in all levels still wrong. Again the data cited must be fake.
I challenge you, you want a debate in public? Okay, we’ll have it. I will challenge you how also you trivialize the thing by – ’yung binibigyan niyo ng importansiya si [Sen. Leila] De Lima. You all know. You were all here. You conducted the investigation. You heard the witnesses. You saw the videos. Is she a credible woman? Can she be a moral person? [APPLAUSE] Puro kayo drama diyan sa…
Debate? I remember the presidential debate and he was a fucking joke. He can't debate. His ideas are out of place. I am still wondering how he is a lawyer. He is still mad a De Lima and how a woman like her can criticize his small dick. He also believes that De Lima is immoral and he a womanizer is a fucking saint. Where do these idiots get their standards?
When you talk about an incident, talk about it. Then condemn, condemn the police. But do not connect it with due process and human rights. Mag-mukha kang gago sa harap ng Pilipino.
Duterte is the only idiot in this story. Although many idiots also believe him. thaty doesn't mean he is right. I condemn the police for following the orders of its maniacal leader. I have nothing to be ashamed of.
You know why I get this rating? I could not be brighter than you and my work is not more important or your vocation is not less than mine. But when you talk in public, carry the proper message. Kaya mag-82 kayo or kaya binobombahan niyo kasi ako ng ganun. Sasabihin naman ng mga tao: “Eh tama ’yan. Tama ’yan si Duterte.” Kasi nangyayari eh.
The only reason you are so famous is because you reflect the inner demons of the Filipnio people. You represent that person ready to murder for entratainment. The idea of right is not based on how many believe it. Murder is still wrong even if only person thinks it is wrong.
Eh kayo man ang front sa pa-ganun-ganun, eh ’pag may namatay diyan na maraming massacre, ni-rape mga babae, bata, hindi kayo umiimik. [APPLAUSE] Maya-maya pagdating ng mga… [APPLAUSE, CHEERS] pagdating nitong mga western expert kuno, you give them so much premium and importance. Saan ba ang utak ninyo? Bakit kayo bilib diyan sa puti? Tingnan mo ang puti, panahon ni [US President Barack]Obama, una ‘yung spokesman ng State Department. Akala mo kung sino. Akala nila mas bright pa sila sa akin. Then the staff of the President, then Obama: “I would like to remind Mr. Duterte that the policy of…” Eh ‘di yari ako. Pagdating ni [US President Donald] Trump: “Oh yes, Mr. President, I’ve been expecting your call. You are doing it all right… And this g*******…” [APPLAUSE] Uwi na ako. Tang ina ’yan.
Actually many people have complained about rape. What did Duterte do? He cried foul. When the UN and other fact finding bodies talked about EJK. What did the Duterte government do? They increased the number of people murdered. Don't be such a fucking cry baby Duterte. I am sure you are scared. Any one can be brighter than Duterte. Well at least he finds friends with the same mind like Trump.
So? That’s the value of the country that you value. Ambivalent. Parang electric fan. Okay dito o hindi na okay, it’s vacillating. Tapos kayong mga – bilib kayo. Hindi ko talaga maintindihan ang Pilipino. It takes for an American to say that I’m a son of a bitch. And it takes for an American to say: “Oh you’re great. You’re a hero in your country.” O saan ako pupunta dito ngayon? [LAUGHTER]
Duterte is trying to project that he is awesome based on some obscure details and ideas maybe he got from fake news.
It is time for us to fulfill our mandate to protect our people from these crimes that have victimized… You know, huwag ninyo akong takot-takutin niyang preso ‘yung international court of justice. ShitI am willing to go to prison for the rest of my life. Ang importante sa akin ginagawa ko ‘yung gusto ko. [APPLAUSE]
Again he didn't protect anyone. He didn't do his mandate. He just masturbated his filthy ideas into the people. Again being honest doesn't make you right. Doing what you like is not moral or even ethical.
Alam mo kasi, in this country, it is a rule of majority. I did it for the 50 plus one because in a vote of 100, I get 51 – 50 plus one. Fifty is one-half, one, that is majority of one, I win. ‘Yung 49, ‘yon ‘yung mga… I do not have to make them happy.
He is explaining the rule of the mob. When the ignorant many puts him into power. Those who didn't vote get compromised like the rest of the population.
But when the time comes, eh kung malasin ako, pupunta ako sa presuhan, do not worry about me. I can take it. Noong maliit pa ako, labas-pasok ako sa… Wala pa ’yang law ni [Sen. Francis] Pangilinan. Labas-pasok na ako sa presuhan. Kunin ninyo ’yung record sa pulis doon sa Davao. Takutin na: “He will be prosecuted.” Hoy, abogado ako because I will…
Bragging about being a crimnal eh? I don't see the point. Yeah he is a stupid lawyer. With out-dated ideas that belong to the middle ages.
Sabi ko nga: Everybody is entitled to come here and question me. But I have to question you also. At para magaling, let us make it official. We go to court and we tell the judge that we are hearing by an international body. Can we have it judicially recorded? And I will place them under oath. Mahuli ko man talaga ’yan sila. May pinatay ako, tama ‘yan. When I was mayor, a little over… For 23 years ako mayor ng Davao eh. Makita mo ang Davao ngayon. You have been LGUs before. What city is now hitting nine growth percent? Eh nandoon pa kami sa Mindanao, binobomba pa kami sa Davao. Davao is nine, growth. Tapos sabihin ninyo… Ngayon, paano ngayon i-nine mo ’yung – palabas mo itong nine we are about to hit six or so, sabi nila. Pero ’pag hayaan mo lang ako, mag-abot ito ng 21, the highest in the world. [APPLAUSE] Kayo lang ang taga-pigil eh.
There is a lot of things in here. He wants people to go in count. But we don't see that happening now. Maybe he is talking about how to deal with his big criminal friends who is with drugs. He also again claims that he have murdered people. I wonder when will he say it is another joke. Davao is a wonderful city because of its people not its mayor. The same way with Makati. Davao is quite poor compared to the rest of the world. Maybe he is referring to another fake data here.
It is time for us to fulfill our mandate to protect. Tapos na ‘yan. Kindly… For so long… We have to act decisively on this contentious issue.
He is talking about protecting the rich in here. Sorry poor people. Not you or me. Just the rich.
Capital punishment is not only about deterrence. It is also about retribution. Make no mistake about that.
Revenge is one of the main thing in action movies. He believes it is the answer to the problem.
Iba kasi ako eh. Let us understand each other, including the international community. Ang aming – our criminal system uses the Revised Penal Code. That is a law that was given to us by the Spaniards, the original Revised Penal Code. Though it was translated into English and in this two books, three books, there are the definition of crimes and the penalties and everything. And the thrust of that Revised Penal Code, ladies and gentlemen, is the essence of retribution. That is why you have penalties.
There is also the word “positivist theory” that you can nurture a criminal into goodness provided he goes to prison for two years, three years. He’s released, he’s a sex offender. When he goes out, he rapes again, kidnaps another girl, and makes her a hostage for so many years. Ganun kayo eh. Admit it. Ganun kayo. You are so too lenient about this son of a bitch, a human being that has a virulent brain and his enemy is society.
I am sure that is not what a positivist theory is. Again if the prison system cannot make a person go back to society as a normal functioning person. that means the system failed. Also relapse for many offenders are not that common especially in the Philippines.
And many at times, there were sex offenders in America released only to rape and kidnap again and kill in just a few months after release.
Well the case for the US is different. They have a different mindset there. We don't have serial killers and rapists in the Philippines. Again Duterte cannot use this case as an argument for rape. Unless he tries to make less rape jokes. And why is he suddenly concerned about rape now. When he actually encourages it.
In the Philippines, it is really an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. You took a life then you must pay for life. That is the only way to even. You cannot place a premium on the human mind that he will go straight. Nobody can. Not even your best scientist. No one has ever fathomed how a person would react, especially in committing crimes. That’s the only way to do it to instill fear – that if you do it, you will die. That’s the advantage of criminals and rebels and terrorists because they think that you are afraid to die.
I would agree because people's mind in the Philippines have not progressed beyond the middle ages. Now with the more uneducated and the lazy. Complicated by stupidity no wonder any news ion the Internet is believed. Lex talionis is something that we as a people of modern times know is wrong. For the rest of the ignorant Philippines its fine. And they support Duterte for murder. You also placed a premium on human life once you think they are less than a human as criminals and drug addicts.
That’s why when I went to Marawi, I was asked by the media: “Why are you here?” I am here because my soldiers are here and I came here to die also. [APPLAUSE] Because any battle, any fierce encounter, you have to be of equal equanimity. Gusto siyang mamatay, eh ’di gusto ko ring mamatay.
Duterte was in Marawi because he needs to. That is his fucking job. But because he is such an awesome idiot. He woke some military uniform like any hobo out there. Of course, he says, I want to die. He just says that.
They say that they use the name of God, and the Christians say: “We have the same thing.” I read the Ecclesiastes 3. What does it say? Even during elections, there is a time to be great and a time for defeat. A time to be in the skies, emblazoned there, and a time to be [inaudible] somebody. A time to have money, a time to be hard up. A time to just walk so many kilometers to school and a time for graduation and being a lawyer. A time to be… I don’t know what I am now. There‘s always a time. [LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE]True Ecclesiastes 3 talks about time. But now its Duterte's time. Soon his time will be gone. I am excited for that to happen.
Ganun ’yan eh. So I’ll match you. Pag sinabi mong: “Gusto kong mamatay.” Anak ka ng… Dalawa tayo.If Duterte wants to die, he should do it soon.
This bully, you know I had dinner with them sa Bayan. Itong NDF [National Democratic Front] because I used to be friends really with the NDF. I was crossing the ideological borders before. Ako ’yung nakakapasok sa teritoryo and we were friends really. But times have changed because God placed me here and I take care of a Republic. Sabi nila doon “bully” daw ako. Tang ina pala kayo, talagang bully ako. [LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE] Putang ina. Talagang bully ako, especially to the enemies of the state, talagang bully ako. [APPLAUSE]
Interesting because this proves that Duterte doesn't have a firm stand on anything. It also shows that he will abandon boat when its convenient. A coward will only be there when its OK. But leave once you are doomed. I am sure that Duterte will leave soon as everything collapses. He is not a bully. He is a fucking user.
Ito pa. Sabi ko sa mga sundalo… ’yung mga human rights na ano, you are flying everywhere, anywhere ’yung mga utak ninyo… I said: “Take no prisoners.” Which is [GARBLED]… “Kill them.” Which is correct? But you don’t listen to my speech. This media – lalo na itong ABS[-CBN] – kunin lang ‘yang “kill them.” [LAUGHTER]
The golden message of Duterte - murder. Then blames the media for saying that he is being misquoted. He should say his ideas clearly and he should also study how to properly conjugate Tagalog verbs. Or jsut speak in his native language, whatever that is.
‘Yan ang problema ninyo, kaya minura ko kayo. Walang Presidente na putang ina kayo because you are not behaving. Now you’re asking me for talks… [APPLAUSE, CHEERS] When you publish in the newspaper or quote us in media, itong mga reporters would only quote: “Kill them.”
When Aquino and Gloria Arroyo were presidents they were heavily ciritized for everything. Duterte doesn't want to be quoted for telling soldiers to murder. How crazy is that?
I said: “Kill them in a fight. If you have to shoot them, shoot them at the heart or the head.” Sabi ko: “Why? Because they will be detained here in Marawi, wala tayong presuhan.” [LAUGHTER]
So Duterte wants to make soldiers weapons of murder.
Ngayon, and the courts will always insist that they will be – that’s the law – that they will be tried and detained in the place where they committed the crime. Kaya huwag kayong mag… patayin talaga ninyo, kasi ilagay natin ’yan diyan sa barracks natin diyan, sa ating mechanized division. Pag-eskapo niyan, dalhin ’yung kanyon natin, ipaputok pa sa atin. [LAUGHTER]
Another rant on murder. This is getting boring.
Marami. How many jail – anong tawag dito? – jailbreaks in Mindanao. In Cotabato alone, six. Cotabato City, four. Ang jail doon, nire-raid tapos pinapalabas.
If they escaped then that is the fault of the government. That means they were not doing their job.
Alam ba ninyo ’yan? Because you do not publish. Or itong mga taga-Maynila… hindi kayo… mga bright kayo, bilib ako. Mga gung-gong. Sabi na: “Why do you…?” Why? What happened last April in Davao? It was bombed. How many were killed? Twenty-seven. Few years ago, the church was bombed twice. How many died? Fifty-nine. The airport just as the people were coming out of the departure – ah arrival – it was bombed. How many died? Thirty-two.
Talking about his beloved Davao. The Davao that he raped. The Davao he was incapable of protecting because he was busy with womanizing and his idiotic family.
In the war, three nuns were lining up there. I had to scoop the brain of the nun to put it in a can because the face was shattered. Zamboanga. And you say that the violation is only in Marawi? Torpe. Talaga kayong… Mag-usap tayo ngayon. Dalhin ko kayo doon sa mga biyuda. Kailan lang ‘yun?
Murders happen everywhere. Its in the news. If Duterte didn't read it and only hears the news about certain places then there is indeed a problem with his so called priorities.
Huwag niyong sabihin na “It’s only in Marawi.” Rebellion has been going on in Mindanao. Walang sinasanto doon. Hindi lang ninyo binabasa nang husto. What’s the… It’s very porous. Kung separate islands ’yan, maybe. Kung separate ‘yan…. Very porous, they can go… And Mindanao… This is not to… The Moro has nothing to do with it, pareho tayo. Pareho tayong Maranao, so just shut up. Huwag kayong ma… Ito ang totoo.
To proclaim that the whole Mindanao is in trouble is just stupid. The island so big. Most Muslims are not even raging a war. They are striving to survive. To live.
Maraming Muslim sa Mindanao. Lahat… Eh sa Abra, meron eh. In this fight… Well, where do you think the Moro would side? Kung patayan na. They will side with government? Kung ako ngayon, kung nakatira ako, hindi kami umalis ng… Hindi ako dinala ng nanay ko sa labas. I’ll be a resident of Marawi. What do you think will be my sentiment? Sulu, Davao – puro Muslim enclaves ’yan. There are enclaves, parang baryo-baryo. Kapag sentimiyento ang putukan, magputok ‘yan sabay-sabay.
Another string of incoherent ideas. But it implies that Muslims are violent because constant bombings. I don't see the point.
On another thing, I’ll talk it about in the [news] conference. Sumobra itong left eh. Maggawa ka ng bahay, nakawin. Ang sabi ko sa sundalo: “Do not force the issue. I will just build yours. Ibigay mo na lang.”
Well, I agree that the left sometimes are way over the top. But it is the government that should able to stop them. But not long time ago Duterte said he was part of it. Is he saying that he abused things as well?
May project ngayon, gusto na naman nilang kuhanin. Do not commit that mistake. Here and now, I will tell you, including the Congress of the Republic of the Philippines: You do anarchy, I will order the soldiers and the police to shoot. Even if I have to bury thousands of Filipinos. Huwag ninyo akong ganunin.
I am glad that the government know some of the plans of the leftist groups. So its up to them to stop it. And of course, incompetent Duterte will not be able to do anything. He will rant about it. Just like now. But not do anything.
Either you’re… Either… Let us understand this beginning today: Either we have laws in this country or we do not. We enforce the laws against the miners and the rich, but I will also enforce laws against anarchy, disturbance, and create trouble. Kayo rin, natatakot din eh. [APPLAUSE]
We have laws but the law now is being used to justify murder. Duterte is cherry picking the laws that he wants to follow. He even wants to be justified of his murder and Martial Law which is a dream he wants to emulate from his idol Marcos.
Takutin ninyo ako na occupy the streets? Anak ng jueteng. You stay there. You ask for two days, I will give you six months. Huwag kayong umalis diyan. Kainin ninyo pati ’yung dumi ninyo diyan.
Duterte tells me he is not scared of any occupy movements. But he goes nuclear when people say he is wrong about his war on drugs or denying that ther eis such a thing called EJK. Even the mention of the words US and America makes him go nuclear. I am sure if people indeed go to the streets he will stop them and be scared.
Takut-takutin mo ang gobyerno. I’m sorry, I’ve exceeded my time, but… Eh kailangan kong sabihin eh. Para maintindihan din nila. Tutal nandito na lang rin ako sa media. Nakikinig pati lahat. Kayong mga left, I will not talk to you. Why should I? [APPLAUSE] Huwag mo na akong pilitin na magpatayo kayo mga pro-poor, shut up. Wait for two years, because I have…
He is saying don't scare the Duterte government because it is weak. He will cry.
You know, this is my proposal. I may be totally wrong and I will accept it, but this is mine. From now on, I will save money for the Armed Forces of the Philippines. We have lost so much soldiers. [APPLAUSE] And there are thousands already incapacitated to fight. Pati ’yung police ko, araw-araw ninyong ina-ambush. Pati ang convoy ko, kasi doon ako mag-sakay, in-aambush nila.
How can the government save if Duterte has already used so much spending on his travels? I am sure there has been no ambush of Duterte. Another lie.
Pati akong — gago. Putang ina, pati ako, patayin nila. Sabagay, malayo ako doon. Pero convoy ko kasi ’yun eh. Waiting lang ako doon sa ano… Alam mo ginamitan niyo ng machine gun. Kaya lang armorized.
Of course, you will be killed. You have killed so many. What do you expect? Hate begets hate. But again he is feeling he is now a victim. And feels he have done nothing wrong.
Kayong mga congressman, senador na ayaw ninyong – baka may kalaban kayo. Asawa ba ninyo ’yung katira ninyo ngayon? [LAUGHTER] O inagaw ninyo? Pa-armorize ninyo. Totoo. Proven, M60. [APPLAUSE] Si… Si Senator [Franklin] Drilon, M60, sir. Hindi talaga ’to maalis. Kasi binara na nila. Nasira na lang ‘yung – ’di talaga nila. And the soldiers inside were all there all the time, mina-machine gun na, hindi tatalab.
What a lame advice! I think he is also talking of some movie he have watched.
Mga gago, pati ‘yung convoy ko, ambushin. Hindi nila alam na nakasibat na ako. [APPLAUSE]Yeah, whatever.
Kaya gusto niyo kong mag-usap tayo, no, sumobra kayo. Ikaw, [Jose Maria] Sison, tang … Mag-inom ka ng Tang. Yung orange. [LAUGHTER] Matanda ka na. Kayong Pilipinas, makinig, buong Pilipinas. Kayong mga bata, kayong mga Lumad natives, itong matatanda na ito: Sison is sick. May colon cancer. Ang gastos ng Norway, sumurender na siya. Kasi naging isyu sa pulitika eh. This government who sponsored those 0– who provided the good offices. Matatalo sa eleksyon dahil sa issue diyan. Kasi pabalik-balik ang mga buang, kala mo mga turista. Wala namang pinag-uusapan.
Just plain stupid, what has the Lumads got to do with CCP? The lumads are struggling so much. They don't have time for that shit.
Pagdating dito, gusto ng ganito, gusto ng ganyan, ah lint mo. [LAUGHTER] Huwag mong sabihin ’yung meaning doon sa mga bisita. Napura na ako ba. Talagang ano ako, sir. Masyadong demanding. Ni hindi naman kayo nanalo ng elections ni minsan. You cannot even hang on into a barangay. And you keep on killing people – hindi lang ‘yung mga pulis, pati ‘yung mga civilians na ayaw magsali sa kanila.
Duterte says that the CCP has killed people. So did the military. I don't undestand the point.
Kaya sabi ko ano… sabi ko talaga, “Buang ka.” And sinabi ko talaga. Pardon pa si…. Pinutang ina ko talaga siya the other day sa Davao. Sinong tinatakot ninyo? Katanda-tanda na ninyo eh. At lahat tayo mamatay. Kayong mga naiwan diyan sa kalsada, mabuti pa umuwi kayo. Wala kayong makuha diyan sa komunista. [APPLAUSE]
If the leader of the CCP Sison is dumb. Then, what the hell do we call Duterte?
Do you think that if the ISIS prevails in this country that you will have a place in their society? You must be awfully stupid, as stupid. [APPLAUSE] Wala kayong makuha. Lahat tayo damay. Thank you for allowing the exhaust dito.
Communists and then ISIS? Is he saying that the ISIS is communist? Why should he even talk his at the SONA?
In our sustained effort to achieve just and lasting peace [LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE]… Class, be courteous. Do not make a noise. The visitors are listening. [LAUGHTER]… just and lasting peace for a [unified] nation, we are pursuing an inclusive peace process, promoting the participation of all stakeholders, including those conflict-affected areas.
Then he goes back to the script. He goes back to the lie that he is for just and lasting peace. Maybe when we are all dead.
We took steps to promote inclusiveness in the Bangsamoro Transition Commission [BTC] by expanding its membership through Executive Order No. 8 which I signed in November last year.By giving representation to indigenous peoples, women, children, and sultanates, and key stakeholders in the drafting of the Bangsa[moro] Basic Law, we ensure a Bangsamoro government that truly reflects the aspirations of our Muslim brothers and sisters as well as our indigenous brethren. [APPLAUSE]
He wants to make the Islamic State or what is locally called the Bangsamoro. We don't need to create a Muslim state. We just don't. It will not bring any peace at all.
We have embarked on various initiatives to advance our national interest in the global community. We pursue good relations with all nations anchored on an independent – on an independent foreign policy [APPLAUSE] – and the basic tenets of sovereign equality, mutual respect and non-interference. [APPLAUSE]Are you with me? Duterte is the very antithesis of this whole thing he just mentioned. I am sure he dod not even understand what he have just read.
As an independent nation, we will uphold and promote our national interests in the international community. We will strengthen and seek partnership with those who share our values. We will engage nations with full respect for the rule of law, sovereign equality, and again, non-interference. These are the principles that we are upholding as we advance to this year for the meeting as the chair of the Asean.In here Duterte means that his interests has now become national interest. That the partnership we will have will only be that of China and Russia because we know that Duterte doesn't like America. Except Trump. The rule of law means whatever Duterte says and other things mentioned must have Duterte in mind.
We have cultivated warmer relations with China through bilateral dialogues and other mechanisms, leading to easing of tensions between the two countries and improved negotiating environment on the West Philippine Sea.
Because Duterte has sold us to China. So he bring in more money to his rich Chinese friends, who also bring in the drugs.
At this point, allow me to take a step back in time, in 1901. In 1901, there was known as Balangiga, and that is Eastern Samar. It was the time for Philippine-American War.
A combined group of Filipino villagers and guerrillas, in an effort to defend Samar Island from the alien invaders, attacked and overwhelmed a US – a United States infantry garrison. Forty-eight American officers and men were slain in the attack. On the Filipino side, the casualty count was twenty-eight killed and twenty-two wounded.
In retaliation, US gunboats and patrols were sent to Balangiga, Samar with the order to “make a desert of Balangiga” and to reduce Samar Island into an island of “howling wilderness,” where every male citizen from the age of ten and above, and capable of bearing arms, would be put to death. The Church bells of Balangiga were seized by the Americans as spoils of war.
Those bells are reminders of the gallantry and heroism of our forebears who resisted the American colonizers and sacrificed their lives in the process. Krag against bolo – Krag was the standard rifle issued to the American troops. And that is how the historians describe.
The long and boring history lesson from Duterte. So he is more concerned now with bells. Bells are bells. They are not even that valuable. Let the US keep them and I am sure the US can preserve those bells better than here.
[TO SOMEONE NEAR THE PODIUM:] Nauna ka, pababa mo. Hindi, baba mo, tumataas ‘yan. [LAUGHTER]
Mahirap talaga kung director ka, ikaw pa ang speech. [LAUGHTER]
Inside joke. Language is in comprehensible. Duterte needs to learn how to make proper sentences in Tagalog.
Many historians describe – [siege] the Philippine-American war. That is why I say today: Give us back those Balangiga bells. [APPLAUSE] They are ours. They belong to the Philippines. [APPLAUSE] They are part of our national heritage. [APPLAUSE] Isauli naman ninyo. Masakit ‘yun sa amin.
I don't know the obsession with bells? Does Duterte even know what heritage is? He know no art. Has no culture? Don't give a fuck. How can he talk about heritage?
We now talk about our overseas Filipinos. They are our heroes. They and their families have sacrificed much to the… for the country. We all know how a large part of our economic – economy comes from their remittances. That is why to ensure that their rights are protected, I ordered the increase of our assistance to the OFW from 400 million pesos to more than 1 billion. [APPLAUSE]We have been hard at work in securing the rights and welfare of our OFWs.
Applause. But do not use them as an excuse. Because I know some fake news reporters like Andanar and Mocha use the OFW as the reason for all their lies.
A year ago, I also warned government officials and employees that I will never tolerate corruption in my administration, not even a whiff of it. Let the dismissal of several high-ranking officials – whom I myself appointed – serve as a warning to all that I will never back down on my commitment to cleanse this government and corporation. [APPLAUSE]Warned? What does that even mean? Maybe he told them to be more discreet with their corruption. May of the people Duterte appointed were inept or just there because they were the people who helped him during his campaign. Payback time. Also, you can never cleanse a government of corruption if the president himself is corrupt.
In order to bring government services closer to the people, we established hotlines, government centers that receive public concerns, one of which is the Hotline 911, which allowed us to receive and immediately respond to emergencies.
We also launched Hot… launched Hotline 8888, the Citizen’s Complaint Hotline. This is a public hotline facility that receives feedbacks or concerns on government services.
Wonderful ideas. I hope they are not hotlines of death where people can make up shit about their neighbor being drug users.
Since we launched this hotline, we have received numerous complaints from the public on government – slow government processing, unclear or changing procedures and requirements, centralized issuances of clearances and permits in Metro Manila, and discourteous government employees, among others.I hope the Duterte government does something with the complaints. So far it seems they just like to listen to people rant and then ignore the problem. The way the government is ignoring the problem of poverty.
Time and again, iyong pag-transact ng ordinary… no, no the ordinary people who transact business in government. In the last Asean Ministerial Conference, I don’t know why Malacanan has to… My office has to do some work for… Or the orders like itong mga barong. It’s always the – that outfit takes care of the attire that will be given to the ministerial, this time to the heads of state.Huh?
Alam mo, I’d like to address this myself to government. Iyan bang bayaran, pabalik-balikin ninyo ang tao. I know that, because I’ve been mayor for 23 years. I never allowed it in my city. But dito, alam mo iyang mga sastre, diyan sa Parañaque haggang Cavite, iyong mga tailoring diyan, ang negosyo ang niyan in bulk – Boy Scout, teacher’s uniform, Girl Scouts – naghahabol iyan sila ng mga kontrata. And they are just the stores that you find along the way until Cavite. They grouped together during times of ganito, may Asean and they look for a person to represent them. This is not… No offense intended, but you see they look for beautiful women, the young, who would do the talking, arrangement, you know, because it’s the… Well, it’s the reality of life and the beautiful women get the attention always.I don't know why is this significant to the topic of the SONA. I mean stating that the government is slow is not going to solve anything. He has been in government for a year now and government services are still slow as fuck. Also why talk about women? Objectifying again? Viagra overload?
Tapos, pag na-deliver na nila, nasukatan na, pabalik-balikin ninyo and right there in Malacanan, it happened. So I will fire the lady, whoever was connected with her. As I have fired anybody else… a Cabinet member for buying an 18 million truck in Austria. That was not our contract, it was contract of the previous administration, 14 of those 18 million were already delivered. This Cabinet member was… I was informed about it and I said, the legal, his legal office, to stop it.I think these kinds of problems should not be part of the SONA. This is just basic logistics and easy to handle. It show how incompetent Duterte is and the rest of his killer government
You know what? He went just right ahead, travel there, signed something for the… another tranche of delivery. So right there, right in the Cabinet meeting I said: “Were you able to read the opinion of your law, your own law office?” He said no. But [Trade Secretary] Sonny Dominguez was already passing to me the 0150 iyong sa Iphone. So I was reading it, while I was talking to him. Sabi ko: “Putang ina mo. You are fired. You are lying.” And so I fired him. “Go out of this office. I don’t want to see your face again.”Garbled thoughts and ideas with swearing. How boring!
Ganoon ako ka istrikto. So iyong… the Cabinet members – they are here – they are only given noon, one year, two years, one month. The directors, makinig kayo sa gobyerno, bantay kayo. Directors, you are only given 15 days and I do not want directors out of their office. You eat your lunch there – lahat kayong taga-gobyerno – so that you can resume to work immediately. [APPLAUSE]He wants workers not to have lunch breaks. There are many government offices that implement a no lunch break policy but most of the time you don't see that happening. What happens is that most employees are still taking really long lunch breaks.
Now ito ang deal ko sa public. There is the 8888, I cannot stop corruption and wrongdoings if you do not cooperate. You text me. Libre iyan: 8888. You name the public official. Name his sins in that bulletin and I will take it from there. Do not be afraid about libel. I will take care of that. [APPLAUSE] Iyon ang gawin ninyo. I have to have your help. Hindi kasi kayo mag ano, wala eh. Lahat, police, military, lahat pati ako. If you think that some of – may nagawa ako na masama, di sabihin ninyo, do not be afraid. We are all workers of government! Kayo iyong employer namin. We get the money from your pocket to our pockets. Since when have you heard me talk about government and officials? I always address everybody “workers of government.”I am sure this will be one of the promises to be broken for this SONA.
I seldom mention Malacañan Palace. It is not a Palace. It is just a house of wood. So why should I call it the Palace? Give me something like the European style. Kaya ako I just called it office. Palace-Palace ka diyan eh. And besides, all the rats of Pasig are there. [LAUGHTER] It’s just beside Pasig River. So, iyong lahat ng mga daga diyan kung saan-saan, doon nagla-landing eh. It has a wide field. And they are not killed because they are presidential mouse. [LAUGHTER] Iyon ang sabi ng.. .sundalo. Sir, hindi daw ipagbaril, kay presidential mouse. Putang ina, mabuti pa ang mouse dito, hindi pa pinapatay. Iyong tao kinakatay ninyo.Play on words and then more swearing. I mean I don't see the connection of murder and soldiers and the definition of what a palace is.
The people’s patience is wearing thin. So is mine.
I am reiterating my directive to all government agencies from frontline services to our people from womb to tomb – to further streamline their respective services to make these truly efficient and people-friendly.
Patience is a virtue and we cannot hurry things by doing things because it is convenient or it is easy.
We want to ensure that our people receive the quality services that they deserve, minus the delays caused by bureaucratic red tape. I expect speedy reforms along this line.
We will right size the national government. Let us trim the excess fat and add more muscle through the expeditious passage of “The Act Rightsizing the National Government to Improve Public Service Delivery and for other Purposes.” I therefore urge Congress to pass this at the soonest.I don't understand the value of this law. How can the downsizing of government offices supposed to help. There are many government offices that needs to be expanded just to serve the growing population. Although I agree there is a need to trim some parts.
For the government owned and controlled corporations, isa pa kayo. The implementation of the existing Salary Standardization Law pending the review in the Compensation and Position Classification System, it’s excessive, extravagant, and unconscionable. Salaries and allowances, incentives, benefits, and bonuses across the government owned and controlled corporations – at this time increases will have to pass by my office. And I am not inclined to increase your allowances, bonuses, and salaries at this time. [APPLAUSE] Wala na. You cannot do it on your own. You have to direct it to the executive secretary and I will just tell you, I am not inclined to give increases right now. Maybe seven years from now, when [Sen. Franklin] Drilon makes it to the presidency.Yes, this would be amazing. I would love to see high officials just receive the same money as everyone. I hope this also gets implemented for all politicians. Minimum salary for politicians would be amazing.
|I hate this job.|
I also appeal to the Supreme Court to seriously consider the national interest and our development goals before issuing TROs and injunctions on critical government projects and cases involving government assets.Well Duterte the Supreme Court is not a pet that you can command like the dogs at the Senate and the Congress. They should be able to interpret the law so they can function properly.
I am just a co-worker also, ladies and gentlemen. May I be allowed to be also, just as frank. Tutal wala naman akong ina-ano eh… I do not need to offend you, but I cite, for example, the Supreme Court TRO that prevents the Department of Health from distributing subdermal implants, which will cause the wastage of 350 million pesos worth of taxpayers’ money. I also note that since its issuance two years ago, this TRO has impaired the government’s ability to fully implement responsibly family planning and methods and the RH Law.If Duterte didn't hurt anyone that would be fine but its not. Duterte doesn't think and act like any co-worker. He is that asshole co-worker who thinks they can do anything as long as they can get away with it. The one who is always late and thinks they help so much in the office when indeed not.
It is time that we put an end to the practice of some parties of resorting technicalities in our laws, prevent the government from fulfilling its mandate.That is what laws are. They must be followed or they have no value. IF the law is out dated then its the job of the legislative to fix it. Now the Congress and Senate are busy on many stupid things. Duterte also remembers the law when it suits him well.
Ganito iyan, ma’am, eh. Tutal, this as good as any other time to talk to you and may I be understood by you. I am sorry to say this. Really I am. I do not intend to do it. But if you have to talk about government and our sins, which I am not an exception or are… you know delays, lahat naman tayo nagkakamali.People make mistakes but I don't see the point in here. And who is Duterte talking with? Imaginary friend?
Ganito iyan, two things, wala na talaga akong panahon. I don’t know if I can make another SONA again in the future. It’s not for me to tell that. Itong TRO has been the vain of projects and even Consunji, iyong mga Ayala nag-aaway iyan. Just to make you understand na hindi lang kayo. Tapos iyang TRO na iyan, would delay the projects.I would be glad if this would be Duterte's final SONA. If you want things fix then you must run the government properly and stop ranting like cunt. As president you have a lot of resources and people.
Now God… and I am asking Congress find me a law na kung may bidding naman at it was regular, dapat ang korte or somebody else should not be messing it up because it will delay the projects which has been the case in the provinces. Alam mom mag-file iyan ng kaso. Either it is really the truth… well, the COA will find out or makahati siya. I will withdraw the case and dissolve the TRO, of course. Then you just give me a few…sabihin mo 10 percent. Ganoon ang ugali ng Pilipino.You should asking the Supreme Court about this not the Congress. Their job is to make laws. Not to find ones. Also Duterte needs to read up on the law because there is indeed. Why didn't any of his so called advisers tell him? He forgot? Too lazy? Too stupid? Too bigoted?
Kaya iyang TRO na iyan is the vain of our efficiency. And I really do not know whether… I will not attribute anything, ma’am, sa Supreme Court. Maybe I am at fault, so I am sorry, if I misquote or I did not have the complete facts.Talking about things he is still unsure. How reliable!
But itong Congress na ito passed the Reproduction Law. It was already a law na dapat i-implement, because we are really going into a family planning. I am not for abortion. I am not for birth control. But certainly, I am for the giving of the freedom to a Filipino family the size ng pamilya niya. [APPLAUSE] How many children would they be able to support and send to school?I like the way he said this. Well though and clear. The Reproductive Law must be implemented. Soon. Before Duterte changes his mind.
Ang nangyari nitong TRO mo, sir-ma’am, may na nag-file doon sa inyo, Supreme Court, tapos nag-issue kayo ng TRO two years ago. In the meantime iyong… ang gobyerno nagbili ng medisina itong subdermal pati itong mga pills worth 360. It was not really a reckless purchase. It was in preparation for the implementation of the law because hindi naman akalain na mag-TRO-and it has been two years, the medicines will expire next month. I told [Paulyn] Ubial, the health secretary, to find out if there is a nation, a law which would allow it and i-donate na lang rather than go to waste. Iyan ho ang nangyari. I do not blame you. You might have been very busy or something. Wala… Ako, I’m just, I am below you actually. Pero sinasabi ko lang, may isa pa. Huwag na lang itong speech, walang makuha diyan.Duterte is saying nice things now. At least the message is not toxic. But really needs to grease oil at times. Not everything can be done with fire.
The vain isa pa, itong… the Congress and tayo sa gobyerno, including the judges and justices, should understand that by this time, iyong lowest bid iyon ang nagpo-promote ng graft and corruption sa ating bayan. [APPLAUSE].Not really. Some bids are quite expensive and sometimes wins.
COA [Commission on Audit], you are here at malaman na lang ninyo na may violation ako. Doon sa military I do not allow them to bid but just to buy the weapons from everywhere. Because almost all countries are making arms, the tawag nila – small arms industry. We are just fighting a rebellion. True, we do not need the armaments, but diyan sa Marawi you have to hit hard because they are pre-positioned inside buildings. And until now we cannot proceed fast because there are 300 hostages.
Sabi ko: “Do not assault. If necessary, we’ll just have to wait, wait it out.” But we have to give food. You do not go. I don’t care if they are Moro or Christian. It’s not… We do not have that luxury. Kasi kapag there’s a distinct possibility that we are there, they will just behead everybody. So find out a way to do it. If you cannot find a way to do it, then just I just said: “Wait it out.”
Here again Duterte brags about being an outlaw. How badass! And he is proud of it. Dutertards are crying tears as they hear this. Look at how honest he is. Also if we are just fighting a small rebellion. Why the fuck is it taking so long?
Iyan na ang nakatagal. Baka sabihin hindi marunong itong sundalo. Ako iyong pipigil. Initially, sabi ko ang bomba eh. “Sir, hindi talaga madala sir. Every window is occupied iyong high rise sir.”Huh? Weird language and talk.
And we were losing because of the snipers. And they are in a hurry. I said: “Slow down.” When I was – hindi ako nagyayabang – when I was in the camp sa Ranao, well, I was briefing. I was being briefed by the military and I was giving the instructions. I heard about 16 pumutok at saka iyong bala na weng, weng, weng. Iyong mga reporter nandoon sa likod ng stage kasi semento iyon eh. We will… is this… is the way how it should wait, then I will wait. Unless you can find a solution, somebody here who has the good, even a horse sense to negotiate for the release of…Military strategy that goes no where. Wait for what? As commander in chief he should be more precise.
Iyang itong isang… Ibalik ko iyong lowest bid. “Alam mo ang ganda niyan adre ha.” Ang magbabagsak ng lowest bid iyong walang pera. Ang magbabagsak ng lowest bid sasabihin niya doon sa… “Magbibigay po ako sa inyo.” Kung sino-sino iyan mga official. So, lowest bid papanaluhin siya. So with no capital magbibigay siya ng pera tapos bibigay… lahat bigyan niya, connected who will… lahat. Pagkatapos niyan if it’s 100 million projects, he has to pay so many guys, ang naiwan niya 100… out of the 100, 40 million na lang, so that is the cost of the project.He seems to be explaining how some bids are done. Duterte seems to be aware of the standard story from movies. He didn't come up with a solution to the problem so far.
So when I was campaigning for the presidency, I was all over the Philippines. My God, I could see a… the appropriation. Pero ang airport nila 3 meters long. So ginawa na lang basketball court. [LAUGHTER]A joke that get no where but three meters. As president he should be able to say something. Gloria when she sees something she speaks up and tells people what to do.
And there is a province here, hindi kayo. Not you. If you look into the records back in time na puro na complex ang roads diyan, talagang daan dito, daan doon pero pagpumunta ka isang daan lang. It’s only one highway, that is how corruption destroys the nation.Another huh moment for me. I think he is talking about how road project often turn into ways and means for corruption.
Ngayon, last. I have to say this. Kailangan ko siyang sabihin, sir, eh.
I was elected June 30. Nag-oath ako sa July, nagpunta na ako sa Davao, sa AFP Medical Center. Nakuwento ko na po ito sa inyo? Hindi pa? Tapos sabi ko: “I’m quite familiar, kasi I signed a lot of… noong mayor ako eh. Sabi ko: “May MRI ba kayo?” sabi ko. Sabi niya: “Wala sir.” Sabi ko: “May state of the art ba kayo na x-ray?” Sabi niya: “Wala sir.” Sabi ko: “May hyperbaric ba kayo?” That’s the chamber where you are placed inside, iyong if suffer the bends, iyong – you are the… nagdi-deep dive ka. But it is also high pressure that can arrest gangrene, especially those who are extracted from the field of battle about two days na, gangrene sets in. So they are placed there and it can work miracles for our wounded soldier.
So in one upuan, one sitting, you did this…then I saw the building and I went inside, iyong drainage nila bumabalik. So I said: “You know I’m really surprised. You know, military men… Would you allow that kind of thing? The dirt is going back to the… how do you expect the sailors to the soldiers to get well?” Tapos that’s the only building, the oldest. I said: “Okay you rehabilitate it. I’ll give you a new one, in the meantime.
He is trying real hard to get the hearts of the soldiers. Interesting story in here that no one cares about. An often familiar tale that often gets told and still no one cares even the one sharing the story.
But about last month, I went to the back of my office, doon sa barracks ng presidential guards. So there were groundbreaking for the hospitals of the soldiers, and I asked the soldiers who were there also from V. Luna: “Are you now using the equipments?” Alam mo ang sinagot sa akin? “Sir, tayo-tayo na lang mag-usap. Huwag na lang ’yan sila.” Tang ina, wala. Hindi pa na-deliver. Sinabi ko: “If this is the way how you treat our soldiers and they are dying now, and that machine was ordered a year ago, then a coup d’état, a mutiny is not a surprise to me.”So there is a problem with implementation and use of equipment. This should be dealt with by the military. This is not a problem to be discussed on a SONA.
Kaya sabi ko kay Ubial, hindi niya kasalanan. It’s because of the procurement, pero ganoon kahaba. Is Secretary Ubial here? Are you here, Secretary? Change the procedure because I will change you. [laughter, applause] Talagang mag-coup d’état ito…Then Duterte should also try his best to get to the person who is holding up things. I also find this insincere since he doesn't want to offend whoever this Ubial is.
Marami nang-we are losing about, by this time… Every day we lose about… ten? Sometimes I say it’s a useless war here, but there is a rebellion. Sabi ko maski kung ako ang sundalo ninyo, and there is a machine already ordered, it could have saved my life. Tapos wala, ma’am… eh putang ina, mag-coup d’état ako and let us get the machine by ourselves. I will not be surprised if it’s already in their mind. Ako, I’m be too willing to step down.All word and no action is not cute. If you want to make promises make sure you can do them. No amount of swearing will do anything.
But as a long-term solution, I urge Congress to thoroughly review the existing procurement laws, and come up with legislation that will ensure prompt delivery of goods and services to the people – especially medicines and hospital equipments. Kasi itong military, ay sabi ko do not mind COA, I will answer for that.I think the military deserves to be served with better medical famicities. But the president must also remember that there are also the poor that need better medical services as well.
Since COA is here, I limited to three places where military can buy the equipments because I am sure that they will work and they can kill the enemies and make even our forces stronger or in parity with what they have in on the other side. Itong armas, sabi ko, ’wag mong sundin iyang ano. I will explain to COA why. ’Wag mo akong papabilhin diyan sa mga lugar nang… gawa ng South America at lahat diyan sa mid-European. Eastern European countries are also… there are good ones, but I limited them to… especially, equipments in listening. Kasi kung magbili ka doon sa iba nakikinig rin sila, sabay na kayo. Tatlo na kayong nagko-communicate. Tawag sa Bisaya “Brin!”Another in-house language thing. Maybe most people in the south understand this kind of transaction. But the purchasing of equipment is not the work of the COA. COA just audits things. Transactions will always be done by concerned government agencies.
Our laws should support and not impede national development in a speedy and sustainable manner.
In our bid to accelerate human capital development, we should ensure lifelong opportunities by enhancing quality of and access to education, training programs.
No matter how good laws we have if the president ignores the rights of the people. How can the dead help with national development?
We have sustained investments in higher education and committed to the full implementation of the K-to-12 Basic Foundation Program. We have widened the reach of skills training and increased the number of out-of-school children and youth who have availed of the Alternative Learning System.Good. But there should also be a clearer way on how people should be able to adjust to this K-12 program.
To ensure that Filipinos are given equitable access to quality and affordable health services, we expanded health insurance coverage and benefits. The destitute and the indigents, or those who just could not afford hospitalization, can now be provided with free services of government-operated and public hospitals as well. We have strengthened the implementation of the No Balance Billing Policy. [APPLAUSE]Wonderful but these projects were projects started by previous governments. And it is good that they were sustained. But not the accomplishment of the Duterte government.
Kayong mga Pilipino nakikinig sa akin ngayon: Magpa-hospital kayo. Ako ang magbayad. Tutal hindi man nila ako mademanda. Pasok lang kayo doon. Occupy the hospital, sabihin mo lang… totoo. Pasok kayo ng hospital, sabihin ninyo na sabi ni Mayor Duterte, pagamot daw kami, siya daw ang bahala magbayad.Duterte the money of the government is not yours. That is the taxes of all the Filipino people and must be used for the Filipino people.
Marami tayong tresurero dito, ilan oh. Huwag na iyan, iyong iba naman. Sa taas na.
I have signed Executive Order No. 26 imposing a ban on smoking in public places to mitigate its consequences. We want to minimize access to tobacco products, and provide a more supportive environment for those who are attempting to quit tobacco use.
This law is somewhat good but it also takes away so much freedom from some people (especially smokers). Also there would be problems with implementation since smoking is something that will always stay. Just like corruption in government.
Alam mo bakit, tinamaan ako ng… hindi ba ito. I’ve been very frank. I have a Barrett and I have a Buergers disease caused by smoking. So, ang problema niyan in a survey in the Philippines, all over the world. Why is it that the women force… workforce in an office and the men have acquired an equal, almost in parity in numbers, sick of cancer. It was found out, because if the poor girl has also to inhale your smoke, kaya iyan inumpisahan ko sa Davao. In Davao, you cannot see a person there walking with a cigarette. Foreigners, they are very… they can argue with you. They say: “My money, not your money.” Well, then okay: “Eat your money or I will shoot your balls.”Davao is again put on a pedestal as an ideal city. Whatever. But in here Duterte talks about second hand smoke. We don't have data and proof that second hand smoke is dangerous. This idea is based on an old out dated study. Also smokers are not evil people. They just smoke because life is hell in this fucking country.
Investing in the health sector is never a cost to be endured but an opportunity to be explored.Right, Duterte.
If we have to embrace the vision of a prosperous Philippines, we have to start putting value to our people’s well-being – because the success of every Filipino’s pursuit to life, liberty and happiness directly mirrors the fulfillment of our aspirations as a Filipino.Really? Then we should stop killing people like ants.
I would like to reiterate my personal and this administration’s commitment to fully implement the Magna Carta of Women to the barangay level tapos na ito. To this effect, an executive order will be issued to local government units institutionalizing gender and development programs and services.But I remember again how can be women be respected if Duterte says its OK for the military to rape. How can the youth aspire to respect women if they are treated like sex toys by the president and the rest of his perverted politicians?
We are targeting to increase government spending on infrastructure from 5 percent of the GDP in 2017 to 7 percent of the GDP by 2022, amounting to a total of 8 to 9 trillion pesos or 160 to 180 billion dollars. [APPLAUSE]Yup, investments on projects to be held by Chinese companies with very questionable standings. China is not a country known for quality.
Infrastructure projects. We will make the next few years the Golden Age of Infrastructure in the Philippines to enhance our mobility and connectivity, and thereby spur development growth equitable in the country. In other words, we are going to build, build and build.Again he is imitating his idol Marcos. Marcos did a lot of projects and they costed a lot. We are still paying those money and now we will pay for more projects that will fail in the future. Building is not playing Lego.
To improve our sea connectivity, we launched 15 brand new Ro-Ro vessels to ply major nautical routes all over the country. We also opened an Asean Ro-Ro Shipping Route connecting the ports of Davao and General Santos, Philippines to Bitung, Indonesia.
To address the congestion of our sea ports, we modernized the Ports of Iloilo, General Santos, Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga. We shall complete strategic road and bridge projects and some of the road sections shall be widened and improved to address the worsening traffic.
Wonderful. But I hope it is all over the country. Why only know of the things happening in the south? No data for other parts of the country?
Alam mo, si Ma’am Grace… You are pushing for – you know, when I became President, Edsa was already horrendous, as it was a horror of the other administrations. Now, I brought in [Transportation Secretary Arthur] Tugade, because Tugade is to me, a bright boy. He is a billionaire. He was my classmate. Ewan kong nandito siya. He was our valedictorian in the law class. Talagang mahusay. But we needed money and we tried to get your help to raise money. Eh ayaw naman ninyong ibigay. Di hanggang ngayon, andiyan pa iyong Edsa.A classmate? A billionaire? How is that going to make EDSA a better place? If he is so good then he should have come up with a decent solution by time already. Besides proper leadership is not all about the money.
Okay lang, at least gumanda ang lahat. Mag-iwan naman tayo ng pangit. We will not make it all smooth in the Philippines. We leave a little alley known as Edsa as the road to perdition. But, anyway, since I could not get any funding, I traveled to China and made friends with them. And the ambassador, Ambassador Zhao… thank you for the help. And as a matter of fact, [APPLAUSE] they are willing. They said if your Congress has no money, we will give you the money. And China has committed to build two bridges to span Pasig River free of charge. [APPLAUSE] So that you will be comfortable in crossing Pasig.Duterte said he sold the country in exchange for some small projects that are soon to fall down or cause disaster. I think that is what he is talking about leaving something ugly.
Well, anyway, all of these strategic road and transport projects shall go to naught if we cannot free our streets, which continue to be obstructed by illegally parked vehicles. Iyong Edsa na iyan, traffic obstructions and undisciplined drivers who stop in the middle of the road, and unsanctioned barriers in some areas.Because people are lazy to change and most of these lazy people are Dutertards. Thinking that the only thing they need to do is vote for a monster and everything will be changed. We need more laws because the people are lawless. Just like ithe government.
I am directing the MMDA and the LGUs of Metro Manila, as well as the LGUs of Metro Cebu and all our regional centers to ensure the free flow of traffic, and immediately clear our roads and thoroughfares of all unnecessary obstruction, including vehicles parked on the streets/barriers. [APPLAUSE] Sanctioned by the government, and penalize all traffic obstructionists regardless of stature – sometimes, hindi mo maano diyan, because the police, it’s a Cabinet member. Pero me, I have not authorized my Cabinet member to utilize the low plate. It’s not for us to… you just use an ordinary plate. Para walang masabi iyong tao. And I do not want you parking there, when there’s no parking.For sometime now I feel like Duterte is speaking like a king who orders things and they must be done. This is also somewhat like some politician said about no relatives, friends or people of power to be excused from violating the law.
Please, we move… airports. We are building new airports. We might get some money also from China and we’ll have new airports in the coming days and we are now accelerating the implementation of the communications, navigations, surveillance and air traffic managements system projects which will result in the on-time arrivals, departures better managed air traffic, reduced flight operational cost and safer and more convenient travel experience.Chinese visitors are not a popular thing with tourists spots. They destroy things and is often very noisy. What we need is country that is peaceful and will ensure that you will be able to visit the wonderful places without much hassle at the airport. The Chinese way is often not the best way for tourism.
Revenues are the life blood of government which enables us to provide for the people’s needs.
Last May 31, 2017, we achieved the first step towards more equitable taxes to fund better services for the people. I commend the House of Representatives for heeding my urgent certification of the tax reform by passing the first of five packages of the Comprehensive Tax Reform Program with an overwhelming 246 votes, representing almost 9 percent of the Filipino people.
The government needs to get more revenues from the companies it owns rather than drain everything from taxes. This tax reform is anti-poor and pro-rich.
The fate of the tax reform is now in the hands of the Senate. Ano ba ang gusto ninyong gawin, magluhod ako diyan? Well really, I leave it up to you. We are all Filipinos. If you think that’s a waste, fine! If you think, it’s not good, it’s okay with me. I can survive.
I call on the Senate so support my tax reform in full and to pass it without haste. [APPLAUSE]
But we know how the legislative branch is a slave to the will of Duterte. Soon people will be suffering more and will be much poor. All the economic work done by Gloria Arroyo will be for nothing. As well as some of the ones implemented by Aquino. We need a tax reform that is just and will help the poor from getting poorer.
Ayaw man mag pakpak, pati is ano, wala. They are not clapping. Si [Sen. Sonny] Angara, ayaw ring mag-clap. [LAUGHTER] Bantay ka lang sa eleksyon, tingnan mo. [LAUGHTER]What a cry baby! Why force people to like what they don't like? Isn't that a dictatorship? A sign of insecurity?
These reforms are designed to be pro-poor, especially when the people understand how the revenues will be spent.Like I said it is not.
The passage of the Tax Reform Law is needed to fund the proposed 2018 budget which I am submitting here and today.A budget that is as crazy as the president himself.
The poor and vulnerable are at the heart of my tax reform. Your support would ensure that the benefits of the tax reform can be felt immediately by them.Again, this is a lie. he just thinks and disillusioned that it is pro-poor.
In the meantime, the DOF [Department of Finance] and BIR [Bureau of Internal Revenue] are strengthening and running after tax evaders. [APPLAUSE]I don't think so. Maybe running after the poor people again.
I have directed the DOF and the BIR to accept Mighty Corporation’s offer of P25 billion to settle its tax liabilities. After the settlement, Mighty will no longer engage in the tobacco business.
This will be the biggest tax settlement on record. It will produce a windfall for government, which is significant since we have face the unexpected costs of rebuilding Marawi and Ormoc.
But again not all taxes will just go to one place. They need to distributed properly. Taxes must not the only means the government earns its money for projects.
The acceptance of the tax settlement offer does not preclude other criminal charges against the company that the BIR may decide to file. A settlement will allow government to avoid a long court battle that, as we saw in previous cases, could take years to resolve.Or again reform the law to make the process easier. Too lazy to actually do something?
Let this be a lesson to others. This administration will spare no one found cheating the government of its due.I am sure the big criminals will be safe and so is the businessmen who invest their money on drugs. The Chinese who bring their drugs to the Philippines.
We view information and communications technology, or ICT, as an effective medium to implement positive and meaningful changes in our society.And now it is busy spreading fake news and information. Thanks Duterte.
To this end, my Cabinet approved the National Broadband Plan of 2017 to begin the work of bringing affordable internet access to every community and improving broadband connectivity in the country.We have also installed free WiFi internet in almost 400 public places around the country. We hope that the public… [Applause] will use them to access important information and services.
I think this is a good follow-up because internet access is a human right. But the government must stop engaging in too much propaganda.
The National Government Portal, which we launched recently, will allow faster and easier delivery of public services and reduce the number of visits of the public to agencies for government transactions.
The Digital Terrestrial Television Broadcasting Migration Plan has also been launched. The switch to digital from analog transmission will not only give a better TV viewing experience but also provide effective and reliable information to Filipinos in times of calamities.
The government-owned Salaam Digital TV, the first Muslim TV in the Philippines, is now already on test broadcasting.We don't need Muslim ideas. We don't need the teachings of hate by Muslims. Not a great idea.
These are some of the things that we have done for the past twelve months. A more detailed narrative is contained in my “Report to the People,” will be released soon. Whether or not my first year of administration was a year of gains or a year of setbacks is not for me to say but for the people to judge; I defer to the people’s judgment.I say its a year of murder, fake news, lots of swearing, misogyny, and a year of blood.
My fellow citizens, [APPLAUSE] much remains to be done. Corruption persists like a fishbone stuck in the throat. It pains and it is disconcerting. We need to pry corruption from government corpus which is deeply embedded and we also need to put an end to squabbles and bickerings with an agencies focused truly on speedy provision of quality public services to our people.
Believe me, it is easier to build from scratch than to dismantle the rotten and rebuild upon its rubbles.
Nevertheless, let us work together and lay a new foundation upon which a better Philippines can be reconstructed. Help me build a better tomorrow.
What is easy depends on the purpose and the ability to do things. You cannot start from a blank slate. Everything has a foundation. And its must be of humanistic values. We don't need a new structure of society that lives on hate.
Let me end. Gusto ninyo uwi na tayo? Oh buksan ninyo pinto, malapit na ang pinto sa inyo. Let me end by wishing everyone in the language of the old: “May God keep us forever sheltered in the hollow of His hand.”
If there is a God save us from Duterte. See? There is no God.
