#AnimatED: The real threat called Alternative Facts
Defend the Republic! One Flag, One Nation! No to Destabilization!
Funded by wealthy and bored Fil-Ams, various sectors have put in place a series of exposés against the Duterte administration with one goal: bring down Rodrigo Duterte at all costs.
Driven by hunger to regain power, the ragtag Liberal Party – or whatever is left of it – has been meeting every day to map a sophisticated, fool-proof plot to install Leni Robredo as president.
Agent provocateur Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has been tasked to take care of the foot soldiers who will agitate the military camps and connive with the yellows for a Yellow Revolution. (At least before he himself gets jailed, as promised by the justice secretary).
The war on drugs must resume, because the drug dealers and drug lords – previously killed or arrested or killed – have crawled back to our streets like zombies threatening to exploit the President’s magnanimity.
The war on corruption must run full speed, especially the type committed by those who had wronged Janet Napoles and by the has-beens in politics who are sitting on a mountain of cash, ready to donate millions to drug convicts just to save an already disgraced lady senator.
This is the world according to the bumbling alter egos of the President.
But this is not the real world we live in.
Here are the undisputed facts:
At no other time in recent history has a Philippine leader enjoyed so much popularity among his constituents even in the midst of controversial policies.
At no other time in recent history has a Philippine leader so scared the rest of the world with his ability to reverse his country’s longstanding commitments and shame – hell, even jail – his enemies.
The Duterte administration passed the biggest national budget in history – a whopping P3.35 trillion – which gives it the wherewithal to provide more services to Filipinos and buy loyalty in the process.
The Office of the President allocated for itself the highest “confidential expenses” budget in history – P1.25 billion – which would allow it to not only monitor threats to the presidency but anticipate and prevent people from even thinking about it.
Outside Malacañang, what do we have?
A Senate and a House controlled by allies of the President who tolerate only token dissent from within their ranks. A Supreme Court that will soon be dominated by appointees loyal to the President and his friends. A military that's constantly rewarded, a national police that's been disempowered.
If the country is under siege at all, it is under siege from the likes of Vitaliano Aguirre II and Martin Andanar, who have mastered the art of peddling lies and brewing conspiracies just so they can mask their own inadequacies and justify their huge expense accounts.
They are the real and present threat to the presidency, not to mention our collective sanity. – Rappler.com
