Punching Bug

On Mayors. Drugs. Terrorists.

GOD WILL SHIELD BLACK NAZARENE DEVOTEES. In fact, He shields everyone, devotee or not.

PNP CHIEF TELLS THE DEVOTEES NOT TO BE AFRAID OF TERRORISTS. They are more afraid of him.

WAR ON CRIMES TO CONTINUE WITHOUT FAIL. As long as it is waged in criminal and lawless ways it will certainly fail.

RUSSIA CAN BE A SOURCE OF SECURITY. We are our best source of our own security. Let us do things right and we won’t have fear.

DUTERTE’S PRIORITY-POVERTY, TERRORISM OR DRUGS? Himself.

9 POLICE PERSONNEL PROBED FOR 41 MISSING FIREARMS. Try asking their so-called vigilantes. You’d be lucky if the PNP discloses who they are.

UNTOLD STORIES ABOUT WAR ON DRUGS. Like who in government are drug lords and drug protectors.

DUTERTE IS LOVED BY MANY, HATED BY A FEW. Perhaps only a few know better?

NO MAYOR DARED TO SPEAK OUT IN MALACAŇANG. This country cultures too many shrimps.

ONE MAYOR SAID: “(DUTERTE) SPOKE AS IF HE WERE GOD, TELLING US WHO SHOULD LIVE OR DIE.” The Devil can speak in a gentler way.

ANOTHER SAID (THE VENUE) WAS USUALLY TOO COLD FOR HIM, BUT IT WAS (THEN) VERY HOT. To be sure, nothing is air-conditioned in hell.

U.S. NOMINEE FOR SECRETARY OF STATE DODGES ISSUE ON PHL EXTRAJUDICIAL KILLINGS. He knows there’s a Trump Tower in Makati.

PNP’S BATO TELLS COP INVOLVED IN AN ABDUCTION TO GIVE UP OR DIE. Debating on whether or not the death penalty should be restored is now an exercise in futility. Even solons and magistrates may soon become moot and academic.

PI-B IN BUDGET TO HELP GET RID OF LOAN SHARKS. We have no “Bumbay” friends? Just ensure that no ghost loans take the place of loan sharks.

TRUMP SETS GLOBAL SOCIAL MEDIA ON FIRE AND CALLS A CNN REPORTER “FAKE.” As fake as extrajudicial shootouts?

SURVEY SAYS FILIPINOS TRUST U.S., NOT CHINA. In turn, and God forbid, China may be trusting Duterte only.

PDI EDITORIAL CALLS TRUMP “EMPEROR.” Better than calling him a cold-blooded murderer.
