Folks this is what can happen when some one is serious about their drug war. Yes I know many in the West want all drugs legalized because of all the corruption and mayhem our drug policies have caused.. War on drugs in the West IMO is not being fought to win but to line the pockets of certain PTB while the peons go to jail. If this is a political witch hunt in the Philippines then it sucks if you are on the political enemies list; but if you are a king pin drug supplier it would appear your days are numbered. This is a two part thread with an over view of how the money can corrupt all the way up the food chain of any government..


MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte publicly linked more than 150 judges, mayors, lawmakers, police and military personnel to illegal drugs Sunday, ordering them to surrender for investigation as he ratcheted up his bloody war against what he calls a "pandemic."

Duterte promptly relieved members of the military and police he named from their current posts and ordered government security personnel to be withdrawn from politicians he identified in a nationally televised speech. He also ordered gun licenses of those named revoked.

"All military and police who are attached to these people, I'm giving you 24 hours to report to your mother unit or I will whack you.


I will also post the following video about what is going on in the states about our politicians, CIA, and our importation of drugs not to mention the catch and release program we have on the southern border.


hosted.ap.org...

The video interview of Mike Presnell by John B. Wells ... Mike worked narcotics for 30 years and ended up being the director of border narcotics for 6 years before his retirement from federal service. He now is part of a private organization that works with Border Patrol an other government agencies investigating drugs, kidnapping, corruption, and many of the other dealings the government and the cartels have their hands in... The interview begins at 04:30 in the time line... If only part of his testimony/revelations are true then the problem runs much deeper than the majority will ever dream possible.. Warning Mike is not a fan of Eric Holder, Mrs. Clinton, congress (both sides of the isle) the senate, and Obama.. .

I wonder what's really going on?
That's very impressive if it's legitimate and not just a cover to oust political opposition.

Your thread should be titled "Philippine leader about to be assassinated for uncovering huge drug ring"

I would be troubled about sleeping at night and leaving the house now if I were him.

All the filipinos I know are happy about him and I know a bunch.

The wife and I are looking to buy a place there as an investment.

We were there in Jan and it's a sad state when your friends won't let you walk across the street to a 7/11 without an escort at noon in Quezon.

I'm sure this guy will clean the place up pretty good, a serious war on drugs is a hellofa way to start!

Duterte is just a bad-ass. I think he only wants to hunt down the people who made money and gained power off of the drug war. I would agree with this line of pursuit. In the end ... he can just say that drugs aren't illegal anymore.

Get the 'real' bad guys first.

This guy is doing what the Phillies should have done after the cold war. Ending Western suppression and influence of corruption.

It's a never ending situation, but if can make the streets free of crime, tourism will blossom in the Philippines.

Get, real. So your saying Philippines should be like China during Opium Wars?

The bad guys make money off of drugs. In return they get money to purchase weapons of all sorts. This is exactly what happened to China during Opium War by Europeans. The President might know this history after all. Bad guys are the ones who sell bad things. Not the other way around.

But cleaned it up by allowing random people to murder anyone suspected of drug use or sales.. With no trial or evidence produced.

The fact he is targeting 150 politicians, with this level of burden of proof. I would bet that list is full of political opponents.


This guy really is what the media pretends trump is like.

He is a monster.

This is what I find disturbing and chilling. No accountability for both murder, or encouraging it. An accusation is all that is needed for scot-free murder.

In the Philippines now. Love it here.

What's going on is amazing. He got in and ordered drug users and pushers to turn themselves in and they did by the hundreds of thousands. Now he's going after the big players in government.

Within weeks he cleaned up a bullet planting scheme that had gone on for years.

Now he's going after insurgents destabilizing the south.

This is historic. If he doesn't get assassinated he will go down as the greatest leader in Phillipine history. And the people love him here.

Also currently in Philippines and have recently purchased property and started investments with my wife who is of Filipino heritage.

DU30 is totally correct in what he is doing but I do fear that it can quite easily lead to getting rid of opposition, I concur that everyone here is very happy he has been elected and it seems to be having a positive affect. I know the local Police are very happy to finally be able to do something about the big wigs and their minions.

I hope once his war on Drugs is over he turns his attention to actually sorting out the country with things like road upgrades which currently are absurd and also starts to address the pollution issue which he has stated he will work on.

Duterte is defo not someone to mince his words, he seems a very straight forward guy but only time will tell, people also need to remember that the Philippines does have a bounty hunting allowance so going after wanted people is not against the law and is in fact encouraged by rewards..

I remember a recent interview when he was asked something along of the line of what do you suppose people do if someone if breaking into your house or you know of a local drug dealer in the community, he responded with "Honestly do what you have to do, if you kill the son of a bitch then good I will give you a medal"!!!!!!!!!!!!..

Let is not forget the extra judicial killings that have been sanctioned by Duterte. Since he came to office some 700 murders of users, dealers and anyone associated (even suspected) with drugs have been recorded.The actual number of deaths is reported to be much higher. This is a one-man populous war on addiction. It is estimated that 170,000 drug users have turned themselves in for fear of being served a death warrant for their addiction. Being an addict does not invalidate basic human rights nor should you fear your own life -- period.

Duterte is the result of populous politics and, much like Trump and the Brexit Brits, play up to an underclass demographic that, up until now, has had little political sway. It is very easy to imagine Duterte as a peoples' hero -- a man of the people even –– but the truth is a lot darker. As others have commented he 'cleaned up' Davao city. In the sense that recorded crime and drug abuse dropped considerably during his time as mayor, then yes. But remember he did this through extra judicial killings. He is now playing out the exact same game plan deployed in Davao but on a nation-wide scale.

South-East Asian people are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet but life is cheap out here. Politics is often played out at the end of the barrel of a gun and, although often described as an investment gold mine, it has quickly become politically unstable right across the region. Cambodia is two years away from national elections and the government has been implicated in a high-profile politically motivated assassination. The Thai military junta has tightened its control constitutionally via a recent heavily criticised referendum and Vietnam has firmly entrenched political tentacles right across the region -- influencing at the highest level. Myanmar is just emerging onto the world scene but still heavily controlled by the military and Laos never recovered from Nixon's obscene and sustained bombing campaign during the late 1960s.

There is nothing novel nor heroic about Duterte and his fire-brand politics. Simply, life is cheap out here and people do what they can to survive day-to-do whether you are scavenging the scrap heap for food and something to trade or sat high in political office keen to profit and hold onto the power you wield.

I'll be in tacloban in a few weeks and my fiance voted for him and she seems to really support what he wants to do. I was kinda put off by the mention of vigilante death squads he used to fight crime in davao but I never lived there when it was at its worst.
He definitely has his work cut out and hopefully he makes progress with the China problem too. I love the Phillipines.

The vote for the heavily criticized referendum (criticized by the the west mostly and their hired writers) was this weekend. The voters had to show their I.D.s and get finger printed just in case there were accusations of voter fraud or one person voting several times at a different voting station. The final results of the "yes or no" votes for the referendum's are still being counted and the official tally will be on the 10th of this month. Unofficially as of today the voters accepted the draft constitution by approximately 61% or more than 15 million votes. Approximately 58% voted in favor for the Senate be involved in selecting a prime minister during the first five years.

I went to two voting stations and they were orderly; no mischief of military standing outside armed and intimidating.. But in Thailand the people seem to take their civic duties seriously if they can get someplace to vote .

We will have to wait and see what happens over the next few month in the Philippines and then wait and see what happens during the voting process in America... At least people are free to vote... Sorry some leader once said something to the effect let them vote but let me count the votes ! Evil smile and laugh followed... hahah
