• US slams Duterte

    149

    (Note: The 11th paragraph of this story has been corrected to more accurately report the quote attributed to US Ambassador Philip Goldberg, as well as clarify that it was said in the context of the need to continue the good relations between the United States and the Philippines regardless of the result of the May 9, 2016 elections. The correction was made at the request of the US Embassy in Manila.)

    Mayor’s rape remarks should not be tolerated – Goldberg

    THE uproar caused by Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte continued to grow as the United States joined Australia in condemning the presidential candidate for his remarks that “trivialized” the rape and killing of a missionary in 1989.

    US Ambassador Philip Goldberg echoed the statement issued by Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorely, who criticized Duterte for saying that he should have been the first to rape Jacqueline Hamill, an Australian missionary who worked in Davao City.

    “What a pity. What came to my mind was, ‘They raped her, lined up for her.’ I was mad because she was raped? Yes. That’s one reason. But she was so beautiful. The mayor should have been first,” Duterte had said in Tagalog.

    “Rape and murder should never be joked about or trivialized. Violence against women and girls is unacceptable anytime, anywhere,” Gorely posted on her Twitter account on Monday.

    “I can only agree with the colleague from the Australian Embassy,” Goldberg said in an interview aired by CNN Philippines.

    “Any statements by anyone, anywhere that either degrade women or trivialize issues so serious as rape or murder, are not ones that we condone,” he added.

    Goldberg issued the statement despite saying in previous interviews that he will not get involved in Manila’s politics.

    He pointed out that the decision on who will be the next Philippine President remains with Filipinos.

    The diplomat had expressed confidence that any candidate would want to continue the Philippines’ long-standing ties with the US to sustain economic growth and strong military defense.

    “Our job and my job and also the job of the people in the US is to stay out of your politics and to let the Filipino people decide who is gonna be your President,” Goldberg told The Manila Times in a previous interview.

    He said “continuity tends to be greater than change in these circumstances,” referring to the “very good relationship” between the US and the Philippines. “Regardless of who’s been president of the Philippines or president of the United States, we’ve always had good relations,” Goldberg said.

    On Tuesday, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade followed up Gorely’s statement.

    The foreign ministry was quoted by Canberra-based ABC News as describing Duterte’s remark as “highly regrettable.”

    “We note there has been widespread condemnation of the comments in the Philippines, including from Philippine President Benigno Aquino 3rd,” the foreign ministry said, referring to Malacañang’s statement that Duterte “does not respect nor care for the sensitivities of the countries with whom the Philippines maintains cordial and cooperative relations.”

    “Australia strongly condemns such comments that make light of rape, which is a violent crime. Rape, or any form of sexual abuse, should not be trivialized,” the ministry added.

    Duterte is yet to answer Goldberg’s remarks, but he fired back at Gorely and asked the Australian government to “stay out” of Philippine politics.

    “I was not insulting the Australian woman. I was derogating the act of rape. For me, it’s a slang,” the mayor told members of the press covering his political sortie in Bacolod City (Negros Occidental).

    Condemned by Asian rights group
    Human Rights Watch (HRW) Deputy Asia Director Phil Robertson also blasted Duterte.

    “Disgusting endorsement of sexual violence by #Philippines pres contender Duterte should be utterly condemned,” he said in his Twitter account. “Why is it every time #Duterte says something revolting, he & his supporters claim it’s a joke? Rape is not humorous!”

    Robertson also questioned Duterte’s apology.

    “You call that an apology? ooh, I said it in “anger” — guess since he can’t call it a joke anymore? Bogus!”

    In 2015, HRW described Duterte as the “Philippines’ death squad mayor” for his tactics in dealing with crimes in Davao, with more than 1,000 people being killed.

    On Tuesday, Pulse Asia president Ronald Holmes said it was hard to tell if the mayor’s statements would change his standing.

    “The people who are affected [by his rape jokes]are the ones who do not support Duterte,” he added.

    Holmes conceded that Duterte’s remarks could “potentially” scare off some voters. Senator Grace Poe expressed belief that Duterte’s distasteful remarks will not ruin the relationship between the Philippines and Australia.

    She noted that the disrespectful comment was made by just one man, and does not reflect the views of majority of Filipinos.

    Poe, however, expressed concern that the issue could put the Philippines in a bad light especially after it was picked up by international media.

    “I hope we will not go back to a situation where our women are being belittled and neglected,” she said.

      Tell the United States to clean their own back yards first.
      Then to sweep out their dirty white house.
      Remember their yellow backed sip-sip (obuma) wants school boys (K-12) to use the girls showers ay the same time as the girls.
      He’s using the power of a king georgie to ‘BLACK MAIL’ their school systems to get what HE wants.
      Ya right – the Americanos are sooo very righteous (SELF).

    2. I will never vote for a guy who can easily say P.I. (Pu**** In*) in public, whether joking or condemning. I will also avoid a guy who knowingly killed (or ordered someone killed) a person without proper trial.

      No single person above earth has the right to take a man’s life.

      Kawawa naman Pilipinas, wala sa mga kandidato ang nakikita ko na makatao..

      My 2 cents.

      • You have every right to choose who you are going to vote sir bec it is in the Constitution. For as long as you vote the right person for the presidency. And don’t ever complain if the person you chose will disappoint you bec it was your choice in the first place

      • Dante Gillesania on

        I would rather vote for a guy who curses the hypocrites, than vote for a guy who compromises with smugglers, illegal miners, corrupt politicians, drug lords, and wicked oligarchs. I will not vote for a guy who wants to maintain the status quo and be enslaved with the Philippine Parliament who is the institutionalized bastion of corruption – and consider it as the NORM for Philippine politics. Giving billions to congressmen and senators through PDAF to stay in power! Enough is enough!

      • You’re way behind the times! PDAF is no more. And this man you are putting all your hopes in for the next 6yrs., is not as “clean” as you percieve him to be either. So wake up; do some more digging and vote wisely.

    3. Is there anything else that Haters what to bring on the table to TARNISH Mayor Du30 reputation and excellent track record??? Who amongst us have never made the same remarks or mistakes to somebody? Everyone is GUILTY! Please drop the act! Opinions and FACTS are not the same 😱

      • Yes. This old man is insane. Embarrassing. And he is your next president.
        Embarrassing!

      • Not everyone, i beg to disagree, no decent, moral man will ever joke about rape, it is a serious transgression against women. It is a crime that should not be made a laughing matter. Woe to those who find these funny and have the gall to even laugh about it, much less defend it as a joke. Shame, shame, shame!!!

      • Yep everyone is guilty that’s why not everyone runs for the presidency. Kayong mga du-dirty addicts, kung ang gagaling nyo bat hindi kayo ang tumakbo? Kasi alam nyo deep down your way will not get things done for the country. Chaka sino ba sa inyo ang hindi nagcompromise sa buong buhay nyo? Kung makapuna kayo ng gobyerno, e wala naman kayo sa ganung sitwasyon. All governments have done evil things. We just have to choose which of the lesser evil we want. When were up against the wall, I would rather go with a corrupt government than a dictatorship espousing extra-judicial killings. Naintinidihan nyo ba yun?? Baka hindi …

    4. Mayor Digong Duterte is mentally sick. He is in dire needs of medical treatment and psychiatric care. He needs a clean bill of health before running for President. I know that you have good intention for our country. But, please Digong keep your mouth in a proper and statesman manner. If you cant control your manners, comes a time, you are putting the image of our country in bad light and worse part of it our disintegration.

      • Bravo to you! you’re the most righteous person giving righteous comment here! The Bible says:

        “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him(God) a liar, and his word is not in us.” – (1 John 1:10 kjv)

      • Ross R. Acosta on

        That’s true! It was just a joke! The rapists and criminals were killed by Duterte and the policemen. That’s more important! We must give more importance with the accomplishments and not with his gutter language. We must focus on what Duterte can do for the country. He was just misinterpreted with that joke, when he also risked his life to fight the rapists and criminals.

    5. Guys question:
      – Do you guys actually know the story with behind the hostage situation or did you just focus on the statement which was term as a stupid joke? It’s actually on the Internet, on the news and even made into a movie.
      – Did you guys know what he did with the hostage situation?
      – Can anyone of your presidentiables do what he did in that situation? Which, is by the way he volunteered to swap with a hostage?
      – Oh and we already received an award from Mar Roxas before he release the “Myth statement” during the election for good governance
      – Do you know how many bad/immoral decisions one has to make to be leader for the common good?
      – Do you know why a lot of people still support him despite the way he talks?

      He made a big difference in our city which was a mess before he got in with a way bigger crime rate than what you see now. This is a person who willingly presented his proposal to the whole country. The same proposal was implemented here Davao which is very successful. If you can’t see past his words. Just don’t vote for him. And trust me it won’t be our lost.

      • It is not about the rape issue now, it’s about his statement on cutting ties on US and Australia. Do you know what would that mean for ofws and other people working for those countries? Easier said than done.huh..Independence is good but we should always be realistic with this. Philippines can’t do it alone. He might die defending us from China then what?

      • Yes you are right. these people judge Duterte out of mere hearsays, not really knowing whether they are true or not, as if they know the Mayor personally. They have a one-track mind and pre-concieved idea about the Mayor which was just brought about by the things that they hear. They believe even the black propagandas that Roxas’ camp has been spreading.

    6. Clear are the sentiments of the U.S. and its allies.

      When the U.S. and allies did not like Marcos anymore they took him out.
      When the U.S. and allies did not like G.M. Arroyo anymore they took her out too.
      The U.S. did not like Erap in the first place (Erap voted against the retention of U.S. bases in the Philippines when he was a senator) when he won with 60% of the votes. So they took him out after a couple of years.

      Would not wonder if the U.S. and allies take out Duterte if he becomes president.

      • Here in the US the government doesn’t give a shit to Filipinos if Fonald Trump will win as a President you will know what I’m talking about. We care only for our own interest….

    7. Duterte is never been a rapist,and never been a corrupt. I was at outside in barack when Duterte & policemen killed all those criminals. Since then, nobody dare to make hostage or crime in Davao. My wife, daughters, and women in Davao are highly respected. We never heard Duterte molested any girls. They can walk in the middle of night and were always safe by God’s grace. To those who don’t know who’se real Duterte time comes you will be ashamed. You better know the real story behind that joke. Our nation is in danger to real rapist (rapist of corruption, drugs,syndicates,corrupt leaders,etc.) US, Australia, and around the world knew it. Honestly, nobody among presidentiables like Duterte who gave himself as exchange hostage, as honest and proven public servant.

      • Its his words against their words, as far as i know if you look at all the reports during that time of tragedy, he wasn’t even mentioned, not a bit, yet he said he was the head of the peace and order , that’s why cory called her accdg to him, yet all the reports he was’nt even mentioned, how could that be? a hero and yet his name wasn’t there at all? So everything that he says is true? you think?

    8. Ayaw ko kay duterte. Yang mga ganyang joke kasi normal na minsan sa mga lalake na pilipino, lalo na pag hindi ka galing sa mga elitista at english ng english na mga pilipino dito akala mo nasa amerika at nag mamagaling. Matalino akong botante. Iboboto ko si Mar kasi hawak nya yung mga Yolanda Funds at mga Tax ng Pilipino na winawaldas ngayon sa mga kung ano anong advertisement nya. Mabibigyan pa ako ng envelope. O kaya naman si Grace Poe, ok to, kasi sinusuportahan ni Jalosjos. yung child murderer and rapist na hanggang ngayon gumagala pa? ok lang yun kay Poe, supporters eh so pwede na mga rapist na mga Mayayaman basta kapit lang kay Poe pag nanalo sya at hindi ka makukulong, ayos yon. Tapos nanjan naman ang mga Cojuanco na susuporta kay Grace at magdidikta, kaya ayos na ayos! Pwede din si Binay, ayun bestfriend din to ni Jalosjos. Pwedeng pwede din to kapitan ng mga Rapist, bibigyan kapa nito ng pang Jollibee. Ayaw ko kay duterte, walang kwenta kung hindi mo naman nagagawa lahat ng gusto mo at lahat ng mga rapist mauubos. Walang Thrill! Gusto ko yung tuloy tuloy na tuwid na daan o kaya naman mga politiko na pwede mo kapitan kahit na ilang crimen na ginawa mo, ayos lang. Kahit pamilya mo na yung na agrabyado, ayos lang yun. Ayaw ko kay Duterte! Matalino ako!

      • WHERE DID THE YOLANDA FUNDS GO?

        This is one of the many questions my friends asked me, and said that these were given to DILG, thus to Sec. Mar Roxas.

        FACT 1: NO! Yolanda Funds were given to DSWD (Sec. Dinky Soliman) and NOT DILG.

        FACT 2: Of the P73B pledged, only P16.47B were actually given to The Philippines.🏼

        FACT 3: P16.47B breakdown:
        – P14.0B to NGOs and multilateral org. (like UN World Food Program, Habitat for Humanity)🏼🏼🏼
        – P1.20B cash, P1.27B non-cash given to government c/o DSWD

        FACT 4: As of Sep 14, 2015, 84% coursed through government has been disbursed and went to transitional shelter, cash for work, ready to eat food, medicines, supplies for children, demurrage fees, etc. 16% is allocated for supplementary feeding and tourism project.

        All these were reported by DSWD Sec. Dinky Soliman and said that you can go to dswd.gov.ph for a detailed accountability.

        It’s been 2 years, and no permanent houses yet. Is it a slow process? Hurricane Katrina, less powerful than Yolanda, hit the US in 2005 and it took them 7 years to finish housing constructions.

    10. US government is much worst by protecting their army personnel who commit rape and murder in the Philippines!

Your Ambassador are hypocrite to criticize Duterte on a joke while his government is protecting the rapist and murderer in our country!

      • Sir you are entitled of your opinion. But better you dig more better the heart and accomplishment of mayor Duterte than his words. You said, you like him before, and now you deslike? Okey, means you never really knew him deeply. Im living in Davao, I knew exactly how mayor & policemen killed criminals.How good governance he made. Only a leader who is not corrupt, and has tough political will against crime and corruption.

Ikaw lang yata sa lahat ng tao ang walang kasalanan, salungat sa salita ng Diyos na ang LAHAT ay makasalanan. Since puro pangit, masama at makasalanan ang nakikita nyo kay Mayor Duterte, may karapatan po kayo na sya ay batuhin.

      Mayor Duterte always say similar joke in his Sunday program in ABS-CBN “Gikan sa Masa, Para sa Masa” but the davaweños don’t take it seriously and even make his program more popular.

      • You’re right, these people who lambast Mayor Duterte are either not from Davao City or just hear other people say bad things about him and blindly believe in them.They could even be staunch supporters of Mar Roxas. They should know the facts first before they make harsh judgments.

    14. Continuity better than change? US Ambassador hints incompetence and corruption is just fine with him.

      • And wasn’t there progress during the last 6 years? Everyone talks about incompetence and corruption.. but they’ve always been there even before the current administration. People seem to deny this administration the merits that they have achieved. Yes, it’s true the inclusive growth is still elusive, and poverty is still very much rampant, but you can’t deny the development that we’ve undergone through. There’s still a lot more to improve on, and that’s what we’re looking for in the next administration. It doesn’t have to necessarily be the standard bearer of the LP, for it can be anyone. Though, if we’re to undergo through such a change, it would seem that everything would have gone to naught. Change is needed, yes, but not in the context of this man, whose representation is reminiscent of fascist ideology. Change can be done through other means.

      • Continuity of alliance with the US is better than change of alliance in favor of China…

      • So who will you vote as President? I hope it’s not the incompetent and spineless Mar Roxas who is also funded by the current administration. Continuity of ignorance and incompetence then?

      • These people have their hurl racial epithet against Poe, but who to choose a narcisisst?? He will destroy only our relationship with other countries. An anti christ advocacies himself promoting danger to our country. Maybe he can stop crimes, but promoting arrogance from where he is now, not even a president elect, he can use music to the ears of his followers but he will never go through.

    17. Action speaks louder than words… But words are enough to reveal what kind of leader this monster will be if he wins. He won’t even apologize… Well, his campaign managers did for him, but he said he has nothing to do with it. And his supporters are like cult members who embrace him like a their messiah. Mas maraming naniniwala na we deserve better. Thank God for that!

    18. America and Australia …… criticize a joke, but do not lift a finger to criticize a government ….. that allows rebels to massacre 44 SAF men ….

      • America and Australia holds our neck secretly. They can continue doing it to Poe, Roxas and Binay if one of them wins, but not to Duterte.

      • Filipino at heart on

        I agree. They do when its in their favor. I never heard them say anything about the SAF44 being massacred. They dont want a strong President who can tell them SHUT UP and not be frightened by them.

      • Its Better to be invade by Chinese than to live in this sick country and be a puppet to a US government.

    19. Sergio Monterosa on

      The advisers of Duterte should tell him to shut his mouth off. Every time he opens his mouth it reveals his true nature, i.e., a person whose mind and character is worse than the mind and character of an animal.

    20. This is actually a result of Duterte’s opponents and the paid SPIN Doctors to try to elicit
      anger out of his Jokes as they are now DESPERATE. We make jokes about other races, but are very careful not to offend them, or we Visayans are careful that our Jokes are not acceptable to the Tagalogs. But in this case PAID Trolls edited his video complete with translations for the whole world to see, without the benefit of knowing the whole story, of course the first one to get hurt will be Australia, what’s next US?Canada? UK? So who’s the real winner? Roxas? Binay? Poe? No, it is still Duterte, the more he gets attacked, the stronger a candidate he would be. Problem is, if Duterte wins, the TROLLS were already successful in straining PH-AUS relations. In the meantime, Manilatimes and the Binay followers can vote for him of course.

      • Whst are u talking about.. so you’re a blind follower too. Wake up and ask for discernment..

    21. How can duterte rule a clean government, when he can’t even clean his dirty mouth and filthy mind? People, wake up and make up your mind. This guy will doom our country.

      • Guaranteed duterte is dirty mouth, have you die because of his dirty mouth, are you hungry because of his dirty mouth, sabi mo wake-up baka ikaw yung tulog bro habang naglalakad watch-up men.

      • nasubukan mo na bang tumira sa Davao City? kung hindi pa, natural lang po yan yang masasabi mo at dapat mo lang din na iboto xa so u will finally see that he really can in spite of his “dirty mouth” as u’ve said.

      • Let us Try this man “Duterte”, We are already doomed when Drugs infiltrated our land, when there’s Drugs many crimes will follow so when was the last time that our country was not in Doomed? Since Policeman, Military, Government officials, Take good Care of Shabu Laboratory and all Drugs related Event’s from Cooking to Distributing “Government People ” is very good on to it, Now Tell me is it now not the time for Killing them? Kill Corruption, Kill Drugs or Stop it, or let’s just say Kill the Drug Lords and all of it’s cohorts , We don’t Need Saints or Popes, or Pastor to do it, We dont need a forgiver We Need a “PUNISHER” , Do Pope Stop Drugs? Do Priest stop Drugs? Do Pastor Stop Drugs? Now Tell me if they Stop Drugs why is it that millions of filipinos are falling because of this “Shabu and all of it’s Kind” Now tell me that you don’t need a man who will order to kill Drug Lords, Criminals,Rapest, Murderers etc. Remember We all Pray but Prayer takes more Generation to suffer because we only forgive and never give PUnishment, so it’s time to stop Cooking Shabu, it’s time for a change even if it needs to kill all Drug Lords!

      • well,are all filipinos mind & mouth clean?…come to think of it and if there is one since hís childbirthh whether you’re elite or one of the clergies,i’ll cross my fingers,all of us were bound with false mouth….please don’t try to be saint folks

    22. Pinoy na Pinoy on

      How can he handle future foreign relations as a leader and yet he still a presidential candidate he already condemned by some ambassador of our allies . I believe soon more will follow. Philippine President rule is not only to stop drug and criminality. Oops criminality? Stops criminality by killing criminals and even innocence one by just only suspicion? Hmmm its kind of contradiction between word and action .

    23. The only candidates and the only opposition not controlled by yellow elitist noytard government is MERRIAM DEFENSOR SANTIAGO AND BELOVE BONG BONG MARCOS JR…The only qualified to run our Philippine government…
      GOD SAVE PHILIPPINES FROM LIBERAL PARTY OF MOYMOY GOVERNMENT.
      THE GREATEST THIEF OF PHIL.GOVERNMENT.
      PEOPLE FEED YOUR MIND..

    24. I am very disappointed that the Ambassador of the United States sees fit to stick his nose into Philippine politics and goes so far as to campaign for the candidate of the incumbent party.

    25. He’s just as bad mouthed as Donald Trump Mr. Ambassador Goldberg so take your piece of sh** to your own backyard where it is more appropriate rather than jumping on the bandwagon of Duterte’s rivals.

    26. Wow, I preferred Duterte over all candidates. I was so happy to see him leading in the 7/11 stores with the slurpee cups sales. But after reading this, as a free thinking person, I really hate this man now. Many intelligent people, women, and the woman who was raped will not find this joke (slang) funny. It’s interesting that he made up his own disgusting slang that nobody else knows. The Philippines doesn’t need another president who ruins international relations.

      • He is a man of alibis. Observe him whenever he commits mistake, he just arrogantly says things, then have an alibi and apologizes.

    27. He is just taking the cudgel for his compatriot. This is his golden oppurtunity to show support for her now that her numbers are slipping.

      In some other time he will not bother.

    28. Maybe, a simple person who is less educated, not-well informed and who may belong to the lowest status of society and who does not have so much concern but to satisfy the grumbling of his hungry stomach could be excused to utter remarks as such made by Duterte..BUT not somebody who wants to be the president of a country!!! Duterte will set the tone of the governance of the future Phils,, his management style will influence people around him. We need good people to affect change in the Phils., one who is not only good in deeds?? but also with respectable and decent words!

      • then tell us who is better than him? those who guard their mouths but allow their hands to keep which doesnt belong to them? those incompetent one because of inexperience? the puppet to continue the TUWAD na daan?

    29. Allyah Dela Cruz on

      It is very unprofessional and uneducated to mock someone who was raped. Sana maopen ang mind ng mga tao. Dati naman they view raped as an immoral action. What happened now?

    30. Im sick and tired those people whose bully blind and deaf, if Duterte lose this coming election t’was because of those bully and shitty words coming from his supporters mouth…Good luck Dyutards

    31. not yet president but two(2) countries (australia and u.s.) had bad feelings wd duterte,he has no gud standings in foreign relations which is needed to rise the economy

      • barreda espiritu on

        You forgot to mention mexico – 3rd country that he lambasted even in front of their ambassador.

    32. What come to your mouth, it come from your mind and heart that’s your characters
      As a person. Please don t trust Duterte to hold the highest position in the Philippines.
      He had know respect for the women. He’s criminal,He have bad mouth, he not a good role model to the Filipino people, specially to our young one. Please open your mind n heart not to vote to Duterte. He’s not a good person to give our trust to him. Thank you God bless our country… Philippines

    33. Sandi Domingo on

      Those who still believe in this arrogant man are more contemptibly inadequate for choosing to stay blind and deaf about the real issues. So pathetic.

    34. Josemakabayan on

      Dudirty does it again!!!! First it was Pope Francis he cussed when he was stranded in traffic when the Pope came, and now he joked about how he should had been the first to rape the australian missionary who was gang raped and killed sometime ago in davao.
      Then he said just like the Pope francis affair he said he wont apologize, but after a while he made statements apologizing for the incidents.
      Wow this man is really Nuts, out of the
      Groove. He should be out there in the Jungle, because although he is a lawyer, his ways are the Ways
      Of the Jungle, “Barakuhan”!!!!

      US don’t forget President Clinton had a sexual misconduct assault case put on a trial. Tingnan nyo muna ang sariling bakuran nyo!

      • Clinton lusted after a live woman. Duterte lusted after a dead woman. That’s necrophilia, “an irresistible attraction to dead bodies.”

      • Hey, you are out of context. The issue here is the Australian missionary who was gang-raped and killed in Davao. Surely, she was a victim of violence against women & yet your Dudirty old man made a fun out of it.

    36. Jerome Ticatic on

      As much as I want to have a change in the Philippines that we all deserve for us to experience improved lives of the Filipinos… both peace & security, as well as financial stability I also value the importance of our culture and that is being good mannered with proper attitude and behavior. I don’t want to sacrifice our values over competence even vice versa; We Filipinos deserve a leader that possesses demonstrated capabilities and good behaviors (values). I won’t settle for just competence… It has to be leadership by example!

      • such politician is rare… so don’t expect that kind of politician in this election

      • No body is perfect, get over it. China’s army won’t care about manners and values, they will only stop if there is a strongman at the helm.

    37. Juan Delacruz on

      It was in 1989 not in 1998 when this incident happened. Mayor Duterte has apologized with sincerity and the Filipino voters have accepted his apology. The latest survey conducted by ABS-CBN indicated that he is still the choice and I personally think that Filipino people in general wanted a change real bad, and he is the only one that can deliver the change. The people can see that Duterte has been tested and proven public servant for so many years, have worked and protected his people from all kinds of criminalities and will make communities safer place to live.

    38. Arturo Jose Lozada on

      Much have been said about Duterte’s remark about the rape victim, that was about 15 years ago. He had explained apologized it that was a slang languages he doest mean it to be.He hates drugs, rapist and criminals..Davao was declared as the 4th safest City in the world much better than New York City
      I believed that Mayor Duterte can deliver what we need most in iur beloved country ,, stop corruption in government services eliminate illegal drug trade, safe community and order in order.

      • And do you believe that he can change the gov’t by 3-6 mos?How long he hold davao as a mayor?What if he is just joking on his promises?

      • “What a pity. What came to my mind was, ‘They raped her, lined up for her.’ I was mad because she was raped? Yes. That’s one reason. But she was so beautiful. The mayor should have been first,” Duterte had said in Tagalog.

        nasaan ang lang dito? “But she was so beautiful. The mayor should have been first,”

      • Nina S. Mendiola on

        Are you sure that Davao is in the 4th place in the world? What is your source?

      • What legitimate article or source did it say that it is safe in Davao? Bec this what PNP data says: 2010-2015 Davao city crimes Murder 1032 (top 1); Rape 843 (top 2); Homicide 245 (top 3); Robbery 7001 (top 4); Theft 19671 (top 5). Its monthly index crime is 18.2 landing 4th among cities. And that my friend is 5yrs timw of topping these crimes while the Duterte clan has been in Davao for 30yrs. Who is he fooling w/ 6 months he cant even do it in his own city. Smuggling is not yet in this picture where his chief pol adviser Lito Banayo is implicated. That is not a safe city. Curfew is only implemented for cities w/ high crime problems.

      • There is no basis that Davao is the 4th safest city in the world. It came from a blog. The PNP statistics however show that Davao ranks 1st in incidence of Murder, and 2nd in incidence of Rape.

      • Josemakabayan on

        Yes i agree with you, he can be a leader IN the Jungle, where might is right!!!’n

      • The opposition could not find issue strong enough to discredit DU30 so they pick one 18 years ago and blow it out of proportion. No mention of the very dangerous act where DU30 made himself a hostage to save other people. Sensationalized a petty slang expression instead of his heroic act.

      • Hello! I’d just like to point out that your statement saying that “Davao was declared as the 4th safest city in the world” is erroneous. If your source for this information was the site numbeo, it’s already been stated before that it is a user-contributed site and therefore is not a good representation nor an accurate and reliable source. In fact, other sources do not even have Davao listed in part of the top 10 countries in the world. For example:
        http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/these-are-the-10-safest-cities-in-the-world–lJR0wZ8sse
        http://safecities.economist.com/whitepapers/safe-cities-index-white-paper/ (full report of first link)
        http://www.asianranking.com/top-10-safest-cities-in-asia/ (this is for Asia; even then, Davao is not listed)
        This is not to discredit the advances of security and safety in Davao, nor is it an attack on Duterte, but to correct your statement and stop the spread of erroneous information. Thank you!

      • rodelio ilaga on

        They are not primarily referring to the incident years ago, but to his joke re: that incident during his campaign.

      • Where are your statistics? Where does it say that Davao was declared as the 4th safest city in the world?

      • Greg Rodriguez III on

        I have no problems with things you said, but let us stop spreading infos that has been condirmed as a hoax. Davao is not 4th safest city in the world. Youll see it in the internet but it was proven that the daya from numbeo which all other site refers ti is wrong. Its not even part of top 10 nor top 20 in in the world safest city thats a fact. so lets not use that lie anymore. its not an opinion its a fact. what a fact is davao is one of safest city in yhe country. thats a fact.

      • “stop corruption in government service”? saan? pinapatay mga small time nya na kalaban para walang mag challenge sa bigtime nyang mga kaibigan? 4th safest? sino nag rate nyan ? IKAW? Davaoo has one of the highest crime rates especially murder and rape. “Safe community” – dahil nagbabayad sya ng revolutionary tax ng NPA at MNLF? sya pala nag papalamon sa mga NPA at MNLF kung hindi nya bingyan yan di nagutom na sana at nag surrender na mga yan.

      • Excuse me Davao is NOT the 4rth safest city in the world…..It is the 4rth highest crime rate in the Philippines….please get your facts straight.

      • Filipino people clamor so much of political and government change. And because of the so much clamor, we are blinded by blunt and fake promises of politicians. No one hand can make a change in our country. It should be all of us! Pls vote wisely. God bless Philippines!

        “Tiningnan ko yung mukha, ‘tangina parang artista sa America na maganda. Putangina, sayang ito. Ang nagpasok sa isip ko, nirape nila, pinagpilahan nila doon. Nagalit ako kasi nirape, oo isa rin ‘yun. Pero napakaganda, dapat ang mayor muna ang mauna. Sayang.”

        Kahit paano po bali-baliktarin ang statement, hindi po nakakatawa at di rin nakakatuwa ang ganitong statement.

      • Marivic Paredes on

        Hindi siya nagbibiro ng sabihin niya ang ” ang Mayor ang dapat una” meaning unang humalay,what a shame! Ang mga Duterte supporters bingi at bulag na sa lahat ,basta para sa kanila lahat ng sinasabi ni Duterte ay tutuo.Parang Kulto na.

      • @ kabron, POE says if she wins the Philippines will feel safe on her first month. That’s worst than Duterte’s promise of 3 to 6 months

      • That label has been disputed already sir. It was from numbeo a website that only has less than 500 visititor. If you google it and go to reputable sites such as businesworld, travel sites you will never find Davao city as 4th safest city much less incuded in the safest cities in the world. Don’t hate just check your source. Now can it be a beautiful city? Yes and anyone who lives there can tell you so. But is it crime free? Not by a long shot.

    39. I LOOK FORWARD TO A LEADER not only that he/she can lead the Philippines, province, city, town and barangay regardless of any situations at hand but he/she can keep his/her words tact even if it’s already in a tight situation and continuously maintain his/her professional dignity in dealing to all mankind.

      • Allyah Dela Cruz on

        He should possess good qualities. He/She should be a good role model since they are running for the highest position

      Judihth Pabiona Palmer? you listen to his joke? but forget all his acts? Go save your gender sensitivity.

      White people just really don’t get that it’s not a joke, even Filipino living in north. He narrates it, and that was really that happened. Bisaya people have that expression, but “HAVE NO INTENTION”. Go live there in Australia and be happy. I don’t know who among the presidential you are rooting at.

      • Puede naman kasing ikuwento yung insidente na pinatay nya ang mga kriminal, tapos hindi na sinama ang gutter language. or, kahit sinama yun pero with apologies agad, like ” at that time dahil sa galit ko, I made a very bad comment and i regret it…

      • What acts are you talking about? If you mean killing people extra-judicially, that doesn’t do good to the country. Duterte is a psychopath.

      • Have no intentions?

        I think so. It was his subconscious self revealing what a real man he is, a shadowy scary character. Besides what is spoken by the mouth proceeds from the mouth. Nevertheless, kudos to you, at least you seem happy with him.

      • D nman to tungkol sa achievements nya e. Tungkol to sa nasabi nya. Kahil sang angulo tingnan Mali tlga. At sabi mo sa Davao normal LNG yn ginagawa nya. E tanga ka pla e. Tatakbo syang presidente buong bansa and usapan. D LNG Davao. Ano expect no na isipin dn naming na normal LNG yn. Tarantado. King kaibigan o kamag.anak no ni rape tpos gagamitin sa joke OK lng.?

    41. Federico Lojo on

      Duterte’s remarks on rape and its ramifications is a proof on his extreme ignorance of foreign relations. Duterte, in his ever falsely appreciated style, believes he can pass his insincerety and deception as truth and honesty.

      • Right. If he wins, he doesnt even know how socialite in any countries,and might not preserve any good relationship with other countries. He is a,narsicisst. According to psychological assessment findings.

    42. Judihth Pabiona Palmer on

      Although I am living in Australia for 33 years now as a Citizen, my heart is with my people and Birth land. I felt insulted by the sick joke of Mr. Duterte. felt insulted as a woman, as an Australian and as a Filipino. God help the Philippines if he win the election.

      • So your heart is not with Australia ? Show respect to the country whose citizenship you hold. As Jesus said, a man cannot have two masters.

    43. This yellow media conspiracy of nitpicking against mayor Duterte failed locally and internationally as well. US and Australian govt are smarter than that not to be dragged into local politics, they were not born just yesterday to be sucked into dirty politics of the yellows !

    44. Filipino-Americans are calling all Filipinos not to vote for Duterte & Marcos. It is in your hands the future of the Philippines. Be smart and not be deceived.

      • Just vote whoever u want to vote…the more they bring down duterte and marcos the more they will be on top! Mark my word.

      • Julito Fernand on

        Get smart, Philippines. What’s wrong in that country is that it seems to most outsiders that almost always the citizens vote the wrong people to high positions in the Government. I’m sure there must be some who are genuinely honest, clean, smart and educated and truly love the country. Find and elect those people for the good of your nation. That’s all.

    45. Hindi naman talaga dapat dahil ang rape ay hindi basta bastang kaso lang, hindi ito biro maraming ang ppwede pagmulan at maging bunga nito kaya dapat seryosong bagay ito. Sana sineryoso ito ni Duterte dahil bilang may anak siyang babae kailangan niya respetuhin ang mga ito para respetuhin din siya ng lahat.

      • Kaya nmn pala ang mga rape victim sa panahon ni aquino hndi nabibigyan ng hustisya lalo na pg wla kang pera na itatapal sa pagmumukha nila…I rather choose a bad joke than a bad Gorverment…i will base on what he did that what he say!

      • Marivic Paredes on

        kahit nga anak niya na biktima ng rape ay di niya pibaniniwalaan na tutuo ang sinasabi.Sabi nia madrama daw ang anak niya,pero punagtatangol siya,saying na hindi naman daw siya naoofend sa joke ng ama.O di ba parehong me sayad!

      • Sabi din nya dati he was raped as a boy. Then he abused his wife by being a womanizer. Then her daughter said she was also raped. His son is also an addict.. i think this family badly needs to undergo psychological counseling. They will be a disgrace to our country if he wins as president..
        O God have mercy on us..

    46. Even though that was a joke its very unprofessional and coming from a public official like him made him look like a scum and hoodlum. As a result i think he will not win this election.

      • Realy? your wrong the more they bring down duterte the more he will be on top…coz we believe that he can change the Philippines…i rather choose a bad joke than a bad Goverment.

    47. Ano POE? akala KO BA OFW ka? YOU SHOULD KNOW! We ‘true’ OFWs know for so long now how foreigners look down on our women for the longest time already! And not just because of Duterte’s slip.haha

    48. Yeah, “continuity is better than change”–whoever will be president–will continue to be “align with US” because of your influence. But you wanted the “yellow brigade” of Aquino–the reason there is no peace in Mindanao.

    49. The time has come now to know the real truth about the Dutertes. The Dutertes were able to get away with all their abuses and of being “fresh” (kayabangan). They have all the abuses cmmed and not afraid of anyone and laws of the country because for obvious reasons that they have:
      1. a untouchable private army
      2. the NPAs and the MNLF whom they financially support
      3. China who financing his candidacy
      The Dutertes are not only psychologically sick, they have the tendency to LIE in order to get attention.
      Let us all pray to have a truly president who can be respected by international leaders to save the Philippines from the abusive Dutertes.
