Even the Chumph’s Dictator Heros Are Dumping Him

Damn…Used to be visiting the White House was an honor…Now even mass murderers don’t want to be associated with the Chump.

It would sully their reputations.

Duterte rejects Trump’s invitation to White House

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte reacted with his trademark candor to a U.S. lawmaker who promised to lead a protest against the firebrand leader should he visit the White House.

Duterte vowed he will never visit “lousy” America in his remaining time as president, or even afterward.

“I’ve seen America and it’s lousy…it would be good for the U.S. Congress to start with their own investigation of their own violations, of the so many civilians killed in the prosecution of the wars in the Middle East,” he said, according to Reuters.

Then, Duterte threatened to conduct the investigation himself: “Otherwise I will be forced to investigate you also. I will start with your past sins.”

His comments followed Massachusetts Representative James McGovern’s condemnation of the Filipino president’s so-called war of drugs, in which thousands of alleged drug dealers died in summary killings perpetrated by the authorities, and called for an independent investigation.

“I certainly believe very strongly that a man with the human rights record of Mr. Duterte should not be invited to the White House. If he comes, I will lead the protest,” McGovern said on Thursday at a hearing of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, which he co-chairs.

McGovern was referring to an invitation President Donald Trump offered to his counterpart during a friendly phone call in April.

Trump congratulated Duterte for his “unbelievable job on the drug problem,” according to transcripts of the phone call published by the Intercept in collaboration with Rappler. In parting with Duterte, the U.S. president promised to visit the Philippines in November.

At the time of the phone call, the White House had given no indication of a date for the visit, and the Filipino leader had not publicly accepted—and he has now strongly declined.

Chumph Invites Mass Murderer to the Whites Only House

Rodrigo Duterte is the Philippines Trump. He has directed and purportedly participated in the mass murder of over 20,000 of the countries citizens…

I guess Putin’s Bitch wants to get some tips from the modern day Hitler.

Trump invites Philippine strongman Rodrigo Duterte to White House

 

-resident Donald Trump has invited controversial Philippines leader Rodrigo Duterte to the White House, the Guardian is reporting.

While no date has been set between the two leaders, a readout of Saturday’s call to Duterte indicated the two discussed “the concerns of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) regarding regional security, including the threat posed by North Korea.”

Duterte is a controversial figure, encouraging vigilantes to take the law into their own hands and kill drug dealers, and he was recently accused, along with other Philippine officials, of “mass murder and crimes against humanity.”

Saturday’s report states that Trump and Duterte discussed the war on drugs, saying, “They also discussed the fact that the Philippine government is fighting very hard to rid its country of drugs, a scourge that affects many countries throughout the world.”

Will America Intervene in the Philippines?

Or…What America will look like if Trump wins.

The Philippines elected a Trump lookalike. So far, all it has gotten them is mass murder in the streets.

President Duterte perhaps emboldened by no foreign power (the US) putting their foot down on the murders of thousands of people accused of drug using or trafficking, seems to believe in his own “tough guy” talk. It is a sad thing to say, but the big powers really don’t give a damn what you do to your own people in your own country. Mass incarceration and murder are just fine. The problem with most of the tinpot dictators, is they get to smelling their own odor, and believing its like Honeysuckle. And wandering into international politics and the carefully choreographed balance of power between the big boys. That almost always results in said dictator eating a bullet, or hanging by a rope by either a “internal” coup, or a few thousand Marines. The one notable exception being Castro…But his survival wasn’t due to lack of trying by the US over several decades to kill him.

So the question is, as things continue to spiral out of control…Is the next US President going to involve us in an “Intervention”…Which is nothing more than politics-speak for war.

Hope Duterte doesn’t think his new “friends” in China are going to save him from a 9mm to the head.

And no…It isn’t about the drugs. If he stuck solely to that…He could conceivably wind up a National Hero.

Philippine mayor, on president’s drug list, killed in jail cell

Philippine President Duterte

Philippine police killed a town mayor in his jail cell in a purported gun battle, the second killing in a week of a politician linked to illegal drugs under President Rodrigo Duterte’s brutal crackdown.

Rolando Espinosa Sr., the mayor of the town of Albuera in the central province of Leyte, and a fellow inmate were shot dead before dawn Saturday after they fired at officers who staged a raid in search of firearms and illegal drugs in the provincial jail in Leyte’s Baybay city, police said.

Some officials and an anti-crime watchdog have called for an investigation of the circumstances of the killings, wondering how the mayor and the other inmate got hold of guns and what prompted them to clash with several policemen while in detention.

“Offhand, I can smell extrajudicial killing,” said Sen. Panfilo Lacson, a former national police chief, adding that the suspicious deaths were the “biggest challenge” to the credibility of the national police force, which is undertaking the anti-drug crackdown.

Last week, police killed another town mayor, Samsudin Dimaukom, and nine of his men allegedly in a gunbattle in the southern Philippines.

Espinosa and Dimaukom were among more than 160 officials named publicly by Duterte in August as part of a shame campaign. Espinosa’s son, an alleged drug lord, was arrested in the United Arab Emirates’ capital city of Abu Dhabi last month.

After being linked by Duterte to illegal drugs, Espinosa surrendered to the national police chief in August in a nationally televised event. He was later released, but was arrested last month after being indicted on drug and illegal possession of firearm charges.

One of over 3,600 Murders ordered by Duterte

Police estimate that more than 3,600 suspected drug dealers and users have been killed since Duterte took office on June 30. Many of those killed in the initial months of the crackdown were poor drug suspects, and police said “high-value targets,” including mayors and drug lords, would be their next target in a new phase of the crackdown that was launched late last month.

The unprecedented crackdown and killings have helped ease crime, but the U.S. and other Western governments, along with human rights watchdogs, have been alarmed and called for an end to the killings. One human rights advocate has called the killings under Duterte a “human rights calamity.”

Duterte has lashed out at President Barack Obama and other critics, saying he was dealing with a pandemic that has afflicted politics, corrupted even generals and threatened to turn the country into what he describes as a “narco state” similar to some Latin American countries.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Commits Suicide

It really wouldn’t surprise me if Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is found on the roadside dead shortly. “Shot by a drug dealer” will read the headline. Now he is messing with the money of the country’s businesses.

The country’s President is very much what America would look like if the Chumph wins.

Philippine President Duterte announces separation from U.S.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte declared Thursday that he’s breaking from the United States, saying that he is strengthening ties with China and that America “lost.”

“I announce my separation from the United States,” said Duterte in Beijing, where he’s meeting with business leaders and elected official. “I have separated from them. So I will be dependent on you for all time. But do not worry. We will also help as you help us.”

Story Continued Below

China and the Philippines will sign $13.5 billion in deals this week and the two sides agreed to resume a dialogue on their dispute over the South China Sea, officials also said Thursday.

The move for bilateral talks was a diplomatic victory for Beijing several months after an arbitration tribunal invalidated China’s expansive territorial claims over the resource-rich waters in a case put forward by the Philippines.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte met with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping as part of a charm offensive aimed at seeking trade and support from the Asian giant by setting aside the thorny territorial dispute.

Duterte hailed a warming of relations with China and said ties between them go back centuries.

“China has been a friend of the Philippines and the roots of our bonds are very deep and not easily severed,” he told Xi in his opening remarks. “Even as we arrive in Beijing, close to winter, this is a springtime of our relationship,” he added.

Xi said the meeting had “milestone significance.” In a reference to the South China Sea tensions, Xi said that “although we have weathered storms, the basis of our friendship and our desire for cooperation has not changed.”

Following the talks, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin told reporters that the leaders only touched on the topic briefly during their talks.

“Both sides agreed that the South China Sea issue is not the sum total of the bilateral relationship,” Liu said.

The two sides agreed to return to the approach used five years ago of seeking a settlement through bilateral dialogue, he said.

World Champion Boxer… Congressman? Representative Manny Pacquiao

It looks like WBO Welterweight Champion Manny Pacquiao has scored another knockout. Known to American viewers for his prowess in the ring, it turns out Pacquiao is an astute politician as well.

Manny Pacquiao Declares ‘Landslide’ Congressional Win In Philippines

GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao. Congressman in the Republic of the Philippines.

The current WBO welterweight boxing champion and seven-time title holder scored the most personally satisfying win of his life in his birthplace in the country’s national elections early Tuesday morning, soundly defeating a heavily favored candidate, Roy Chiongbian, from an entrenched billionaire clan to win a seat in the Philippines Congress representing the province of Sarangani on the island of Mindanao.

By doing so, Pacquiao, 31, becomes the first professional boxer to hold national public office while still active in the ring. After his victory in the Philippines’ first fully electronic national elections was deemed largely official by early Tuesday morning, Pacquiao felt confident enough to declare victory over Chiongbian, 61.

Earlier, as election results came into his campaign office, the country’s most famous athlete had no doubt.

For, even though the final vote tallies weren’t complete, Pacquiao’s approximately 90,000 votes out of 125,000 registered voters made it mathematically impossible for the boxing hero to lose.

“This is the biggest achievement of Manny’s life. More than any boxing match,” said Pacquiao’s adviser, Michael Koncz, adding that Pacquiao will make an official proclamation of victory at 11 a.m local time Tuesday.

Hope the Congress in the Philippines is a bit more peaceful than those we’ve seen from other parts of the world! I voting for whichever party Manny is from to win those across the isles food fights! Unlike other politicians, Manny has a solid left…And a wicked right! 🙂

Congrats, Congressman Pacquiao!
