Yup He is an American stooge, His name is Christian Esguerra, look at his face that is a distinctive feature of a Filipino what every angle you look, As a Filipino he is an embarrassment . He talk pretty English trying to impress As you can see for yourself in the video, all talk no substance wanted to look smart and gain recognition. He's trying so hard to climb the social ladder and be part of the elite. But they and his audience will never accept him cause he is not a mestizo (mixed race) nor a good looking fellow ;) . He choose the wrong profession, with that face of his, it's better for him to become an intellect and use his pretty English to help explain to the elites that they need to change their ways so that the society can prosper. :cool:
Lol you're a little harsh to that man's native good looks. I mean, who the heck are these supposed elites in the Philippines to be even critical of someone else's looks, I mean aside from the Zobel-Ayala clan (which are essentially European stock) they're not the political power players in your country are they? If these dumb ass elites are going for looks and supposed smarts then they maybe trying to entertain the current Mayor of Manila, who used to be an actor so the man can definitely put on a show.

Good day bro, nice to have somebody that is interest in my country, About the Ayala influence you had no idea how they operate. They are the one who profited the most alongside the Prietos and Lopez family after the EDSA Revolution by associating themselves with Cory Aquino which all of them are part of the oligarchy. They make their money by grabbing gov't land and are rent seekers. The way Ayala operate is to buy out media personality (Christian Esguerra is an example) to harp on its Corporate Social Responsibility which in truth is a lot of hogwash. An example is Manila Water a water utility company which they owned , they charge us a STP Fee (sewage treatment plant) from 1999 up to present without even constructing one, only to be expose by Duterte, so they aren't clean as they claim to be. In this coming election they will again spend a huge amount of money to their prefer candidates rather than paying the fine and produce the STP that is stated in their contract. That is how they operate and with impunity. they also have dual citizenship, so that they can escape if there is a revolution or trouble here. Regarding Christian Esguerra man I wish you watch his other program and see for yourself if he is really truly a Filipino and which side is he fighting for, that native face of his should provide the answer but it is not and its an embarrassment for all of us.

Isko Moreno, yes he is a former actor, but compare to his predecessor Joseph Estrada who also is a former actor he is much better and less corrupt. He came from the slum and understand how the masses feel, he also had a history of gambling and was force to join forces with his predecessor as vice mayor to pay off his debt. In other words he is not clean and he admit it. Duterte took him under his wing , believing in him and support his mayoral election. His current performance in governance is like that of Duterte who is his idol, more action less talk, so he is popular but is grounded because of his past experience of political betrayal. In my country our politics is personality driven cause we set the bar so low after the EDSA REVOLUTION. During Marcos time there is a meritocracy in holding office now if you had good looks and preferably a Mestizo (mix race) you can win, were hoping this time around with Duterte legacy at an all time high people will vote for competency rather than a show.

Time for the West and US to understand, if they do, the Asian Pacific is what it means. But the West try to use all forms of excuses (freedom of navigation etc) to interfere with the harmoninous Asian countries and create troubles because they think they are militarily superior. But no more. China has stood up since the founding of New China in1949; now she is militarily strong and econmically stable, despite the pandamic. China works well with all the Asian countries, creating a win-win situation. The US and the West...zero sum! West and US economy? Hmmm
@davidau , For us Asian Australia and NZ is an interloper and the US is a guest (the American came from a far therefore we treat them as a guest), So if a conflict arise between us why should we allow a guest to interfere and meddle in our affair? Because of China being big and powerful therefore needed to be contain and to hedge, thru history we had live in peace until the European arrive. That is why the western narrative is so obviously wrong that it contradict itself, and China should stay the course and understand the trap is being laid, we should move the enemy instead of us being moved. The ASEAN knows their history and accept China hegemony cause its more preferable than being a western lackey.

I don't agree with your labelling China as being, or trying to be hegemony. China is not US.

Whats the point of saying you are not a hegemonist if no one believes you? It limits your own thinking and ambition at the end of the day.

What kind of logic is that? China has no interest in controlling the world nor others and history has proven this. In fact, everything China has done has strengthened a multipolar world. At what point does China act in any form similar to the US? Are you trolling mate?

So let me get this straight, this is the new SCS Eight Nation Army?

France: one SSN and one resupply ship, just to be extra clear where the sub is at any moment
Germany: one lousy frigate
Spain: a damn sailing ship

Are you guys like, actually following Biden's command or are you trying to telegraph to the whole world how terrified you are of upsetting China?
