Hey NBI, here’s a new lead for your Bikoy Video investigation


Hey NBI guys, I heard you're looking for other people, so let me humbly give you a few leads that you may have overlooked.
Note to Mr. Rodel Jayme: for your own sake, better spill the beans ASAP so you can still become a state witness.  Your would-be testimony may become unnecessary very soon.

MARIA RESSA’S CYBER LIBEL: EVIDENCE SUGGESTS CONVICTION IS HIGHLY LIKELY


I earlier wondered why Maria Ressa and her media allies never mentioned anything about the truthfulness of the report upon which Wilfredo Keng's libel suit was based.

I got the answer a day later, when I got hold of a letter [PDEA] dated 15 August 2016 from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, addressed to what I presume to be Keng's lawyer. The letter stated that Keng, at least as of the letter's writing, had NO DEROGATORY RECORD in PDEA's database.

Rappler never took down the assailed news article, despite knowing full well that all it has is merely an intelligence report while Keng has an official document proving the contrary.

Rappler, in short, published a VERIFIABLE FALSEHOOD.

Parents: DOH bangkay chasers “buy evidence” from Dengvaxia victims

A child holding a Dengvaxia Card.
It’s been over a year since the Dengvaxia Scandal erupted in November 2017. Since then, the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO) with its chief Atty. Persida Acosta has autopsied the bodies of over a hundred vaccinees, a vast majority of whom are school-age children who received the vaccine through the botched 2016 school-based vaccination program of the Department of Health (DOH), led by then Secretary Janette Garin.

PAO has already filed a number of criminal, civil, and administrative cases against the perpetrators of what could possibly be the biggest case of medical practice in Modern History.

Justice, however, remains elusive, as several of the victims’ parents came forward and accused today’s Department of Health of attempting to “buy evidence” from them, which would make it more difficult for the victims’ families to secure convictions against the culprits.

#PABoost: Kris Aquino, the showbiz cockroach, bit off more social media fodder than she can chew


After the Nagasaki and Hiroshima nuclear attacks, reports came out that cockroaches were the only creatures that survived the two blasts. With that said, I think it can be argued that Kris Aquino is the showbiz equivalent of the Nagasaki and Hiroshima Cockroaches, with her atomic blasts being the many scandals she survived throughout her showbiz career.

And what's the problem? Kris Aquino's #PABoost Scandal, the latest atomic blast,  is something that even a cockroach like her may not survive.

#PABoost: Exploring Jover Laurio's financial links to the oppositionist Liberal Party


Who knew that Kris Aquino's estranged financial manager would reopen a gigantic can of worms?

If there's such a thing as VP Leni Robredo's "well-oiled machinery", this must be it.

#PABoost: There's another fishy thing about this anti-admin blogger's page financials


With the financial manager of the former presidential sister gone, who's funding Pinoy Ako Blog's active sponsored posts today?

I think this issue is especially relevant today. 

Since Pres. Rody Duterte assumed office in 2016, opposition figures, such as Rappler, have accused administration-aligned blogs such as MOCHA USON BLOGFor the Motherland - Sass Rogando SasotThinking Pinoy, of receiving financial support from administration personalities.

To this day, these accusations are still bereft of any tangible evidence, accusations that the blogs' respective owners categorically deny.

The irony? Evidence shows that at least one opposition blog -- Pinoy Ako Blog -- is guilty of what the opposition accuses the three bloggers listed above.
