Erwin Tulfo Got It Right

Erwin Tulfo said that Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Vice President Leni Robredo could not do anything to stop President Rodrigo Duterte to have a real change in our country.

It is known that Duterte is to blame by extrajudicial killings according to Trillanes, but Trillanes should know that the Filipino people have the support for the president.

In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said "Filipino people want to change the old and corrupt system of the government, so be it." 

Erwin Tulfo slammed both Robredo and Trillanes, saying they should stop criticizing the government when there are a lot of positive things are happening right now.

Is President Rodrigo Duterte A Political Genius?

By Alon Calinao Dy: Someone told me that those intelligent people have less friends but that is not always the case with President Rodrigo Duterte as he has millions of friends around the world. 

In the last blog I publised to social media, someone asked me, "hey, Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, why is it that your president is always looking for a fight?" 

President Duterte has a strong mindset and values. It is true that he is exercising his freedom of speech and at the same time he thinks differently from other people especially from those corrupt politicians. 

The truth is Filipinos do not want leaders who try to please the world for the sake of being popular or simply to look good to the United Nations. I call these people as hypocrites who are not worthy to be the good leaders in the Philippines. 

I believe President Duterte is a political genius because he sees more to life. He gives hope to the poor people that if Filipinos want to achieve the real change we're all hoping for, perhaps, this is the right time for us to be united and punish those corrupt politicians who are involved in illegal drugs. 

One characteristic I really admire to our beloved president is that he is independent aside from being a strong leader. I don't regret it when I gave my full support to the president because I see Duterte as a natural-born leader who would do anything for his country and for his people.

I know that some people may not agree with my opinion, but I have no fear in saying that PRESIDENT DUTERTE IS A POLITICAL GENIUS. While others are trying to throw him out from his office, the president has good plans for this country and for Filipinos ahead of time. He knows that being a president is a gift from God, it's now his obligation to serve the best interests of the country and its people.

Hatred Won't Stop President Rodrigo Duterte's Determination To Change Philippines

By Alon Calinao Dy: President Rodrigo Duterte knew from the very beginning that there were some rich and powerful people who wanted to impeach him after the opposition had lost their presidential bid as they wanted to stay in power for so many reasons...One is to have control with illegal drug trade, second is to enjoy rampant corruption in the government, and  of course, a lot of criminal activities.

In one of my blog posts, a reader asked me, "hey, Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, how many people actually died during the campaign against illegal drugs? My honest answer is that I don't know as I don't have the actual records. But this is the truth, those people who tried to linked the president to the extrajudicial killings are a handful of "fake" Human Rights advocates who protect their best interest rather than a majority of Filipino people.

The truth is that there were several grave crimes committed by the previous administration/s, and those crimes were easily forgotten and not reported to national TV by some biased media because money, power and influence played a big role.

I don't understand why critics are blaming Duterte for all those horrid crimes when it seems he just wants to implement the rule of law. I don't understand why these oligarchs are trying to put Duterte down and blaming him for betrayal of trust for asking assistance and depending China and Russia? Is it because the price of oil & gas will be much cheaper than before if ever Russia will supply us? 

Remember, China is a rich country and one of the big suppliers of different useful products anywhere in the globe. Also, Russia is one of the largest producers of oil and gas in the world. Think about it. That is one of the reasons why rich people do not always agree with the president because they think their business will be at stake, but that's not always the case, Duterte said this before that he works for the Filipino people especially for the poor and not for some elite people in the society. 

Some people are asking the president: Does he hate the US? I think he already answered this question before. Of course, not. US is a long and strongest ally of the Philippines. The president wants the country to be known across the world. It means to say that the country needs to open its door to new trading partners to avoid monopolies to protect the best interests of the people and in order for our economy to prosper.

Duterte is definitely risking his life for this as he knows that there are many rich people who would go against him, but for the love of the country and people, he is risking absolutely everything, even his presidency. He is trying to make Filipinos understand that an independent foreign policy, probably the most unforgivable sins on the part of Western regime, is a win-win situation for Filipino people.

Share This Post If You Feel Senator Antonio Trillanes Disrespects Senator Alan Cayetano

Credit to the owner

By Alon Calinao Dy: According to netizens, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV should be removed as a senator because he acted like a Very Angry Person (VAP), displaying his arrogant manner against Senator Alan Peter Cayetano at the Senate hearing a past few days.

Outraged netizens commented on social media that Senator Trillanes and Senator De Lima should be punished for presenting a "fake" witness to embarrass President Duterte in front of international communities.

Viewers also said that Senator Cayetano could not do it to Senator Manny Pacquiao, the statement he told to Cayetano "di kita papopormahin."

Many Filipinos have expressed their opinions about the bad characters of Senator Trillanes, as they want their boxing idol Manny Pacquiao be seated next to Trillanes when another Senate hearing resumes again. 

Aside from Senator Cayetano, Senator Panfilo Lacson and Senator Tito Sotto did not believe that a witness Edgar Matobato was a credible one when he committed mistakes several times during the Senate interrogation. 

For now, it is believed that Senator Sotto file a complaint against Senator De Lima and Trillanes for presenting a "fake" witness and for destroying the good image of Senate of the Philippines.

Inmate Colangco Points Out Senator De Lima As A Mastermind To Fund Her Political Campaign

By Alon Calinao Dy: Inmate Herbert Colangco and other high-profile drug lords confessed the alleged involvement of Senator Leila De Lima into drug trade inside the New Bilibid Prison for her senatorial campaign last May 2016.

Colangco and others, who are willing to testify against Sen. De Lima, was transferred to a new facility because of a new tension inside the prison. 

Colangco is a big name drug lord who had a collection of photos with Sen. De Lima during the time she was still a Justice Secretary. Still in a recent interview, De Lima denied the allegations that she is involved with the illegal drug trade.

Why Do Philippine Media Blame President Rodrigo Duterte For Something Not Right In The Philippines?

By Alon Calinao Dy: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has all the critics, destroying his good reputation despite everything he had done in the country for a past few months. Duterte remained the most trusted political leader today. 
Philippine media has become ruthless to President Duterte. He has not given a chance to make Philippines a better country who stands on her own without the great influence of powerful countries, though it cannot stand alone but at least Philippines has its own identity.
There is no truth behind the issues that President Duterte cursed U.S. President Barack Obama, He said this statement when he met the most powerful person in Laos; and the United States president understood that the media here in the Philippines is one of the most corrupt bodies in the country. 
In fact, corrupt media killing our president and our country little by little. I don't want to name them but the fact is here that it does not help to our neighboring countries and allies like United States and Great Britain. President Duterte has a big respect to all world leaders particularly to President Obama who helped our country when thousands of Filipinos were killed during Typhoon Haiyan  last 2013. 
I lived in Samar and now I'm here in the United States. Many Americans have high respect to President Duterte especially on his anti-drug campaign in the Philippines. It's hurting especially for over 16 million Filipinos to see a hard-working president who is doing his best he can to make Philippines a safe place for everyone, yet these biased media are destroying the name of President Duterte and our country.
President Duterte blamed the media for twisting the truth and editing his statement he made. Perhaps, this may be one of the reasons why he avoided Philippine media as it is one of the most corrupt organizations in the Philippines and BEST for distorting Duterte's words. I don't think Duterte said "son of a b*tch" to President Obama. 
Let's admit the fact that Philippines is run by oligarchs and the problem of illegal drugs, criminality and corruptions are made by some of these people who want to maintain their power and increase their money through these illegal activities on drugs. Duterte has been criticized for doing the right thing for our country. 
I don't understand why Philippine media is trying to divide us all Filipinos. I believe that we should respect the right of every Filipino, but Human Rights advocates had been using this organization for their personal gains and political interests. Good thing that Filipinos now are smarter than ever before as everyone has opened their eyes for the truth and for the love of our country.

The Long Wait is Finally Over With Immigrant Visas To The United States

By Alon Calinao Dy: Like many Filipino nurses, I have dreamed an American life, a luxury car like Mercedes-Benz, a brand new house, and a few dollars after 12 hours of work. Those were the days when I was young, single, and full of hopes and dreams.

When U.S. visa retrogression started after 9/11 attacks, I was a newly passer of CGFNS and NCLEX-RN examinations during that time. My dream to work as a professional registered nurse in the U.S. seemed to be falling apart. I hated it.

Those were the times I felt down and the only person I could share my hopes and dreams was my girlfriend, those were the days I felt my American dream appeared shattered, and those were the moments they called professional nurses as call center agents.

I was fortunate I have parents who were very supportive and encouraged me to stand on my own feet. But I was young and I sometimes made awkward decisions. Motivated with my strong desire to work outside the country, I was a victim of an internet fraud. 

I lost P50,000 from my parents' hard-earned money and sent the money via Western Union to a scammer in the United Kingdom. I was not able to get the money back. At that moment, so many painful thoughts and emotions came over me, and that was my first lesson about an online scam in 2007.

After an upsetting experience, I told my parents about my plan to work in the Middle East. At first, they were so scared and didn't believe me because of a fraudelent transaction that happened to me. 

At that point, I said to myself that I couldn't blame my parents and I wish it never happened to me. The only time they believed me when I had a plane ticket going to Saudi Arabia. I didn't want to ask money from them, so I borrowed a $100 pocket money from my girlfriend.

On January 2010, I started to work as a staff nurse at International Medical Center in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia after 3 years of clinical practice in the Philippines. I met a lot of hardworking Filipino nurses abroad and I also heard their touching life stories as they have high hopes to give a bright future for their families.

When I saved enough money for my civil wedding, I came back and married my girlfriend in the Philippines. Another work opportunity came knocking at my door when I found a better job based on salary in Ministry of Health, Kuwait. I transferred from Saudi Arabia to Kuwait where I started to earn a living for my family. 

I admit that life of an Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) is not that easy and responsibilities must be met regularly. I spent my Christmas away from my family for quite a number of years. Though my friends were throwing a party or messing around with me, it was different when I spent quality time with my family and I have never been so happy in my life to be with them.

It's true that temptation is everywhere. But the question by many, how can an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) avoid temptation? It always depends on the person whether to do the right thing or not. What I did was, I was fascinated into a lot of sports and attended prayer meeting invitations in order to resist temptation and overcome loneliness.

After waiting retrogression to be lifted, I returned to the Philippines in 2014. I had very high expectations to my previous agency because my priority date dated May 2007 was current. My agency ordered me to pay for my visa fee bill, but I informed Mr. Ferdie in advance, an agent who processed my documents going to the United States, to add my wife to EB3 petition. 

My agency's recommendation was to go by myself. Of course, I felt sad. I didn't appreciate their advice since all these years I was too far away from my family and was tired of being alone. All I ever wanted was to be with them this particular moment.

I could still remember the time when I was working overseas as I promised myself that my next travel destination is to bring my family with me no matter what happens. It was really hard for me to work in other countries when I thought much about family's safety.

I followed my former agency's advice to pay the visa fee bills immediately. My parents, who are currently living in America, sent the payments including my wife's visa application fees directly to Mr. Ferdie in New York. And I told them to keep the receipt for future reference. 

I constantly called Mr. Ferdie about the status of my application. I trusted him. But every time I talked to him, he couldn't keep his own promises. I started to doubt him. He kept me waiting for something that never happened. 

One thing I couldn't forget in our last phone conversation when he said to me that I have to slow down since I owed him a debt of gratitude as he was the one who helped me in processing the application to the United States. 

I didn't imagine I would hear something like that, especially from the agent whom I trusted all these years. I've waited more than 8 years and I think that's long enough for me to wait. I think Mr. Ferdie should understand the difficult situations of nurses and why many Filipino nurses work in the Middle East and in other countries temporarily.

I wondered why it took a year to add my wife to EB3 petition and until now her visa fee bill has not been paid by the responsible agent despite the fact that National Visa Center (NVC) has been trying to reach me, asking for my wife's payment and other necessary documents, which I already submitted to the agency. 

Trials came into our lives when my wife suffered a traumatic miscarriage. It was very difficult for us to accept the reality. She cried almost every day and night. She told me she experienced emotional distress at work as a dental practioner and was hoping for my U.S. visa application to come soon.

After three months of my wife's miscarriage, God blessed us with another baby. I made a bold decision to look for another agency. I posted a message asking for help in a growing number of members in Lefora group on Facebook about my interest for a new employer who could still recapture my earlier priority date. 

Nurse members in Lefora group were absolutely kind and very helpful people. Rason Chris, who is a nurse and one of a thousand members of the group, recommended me to apply to Health Carousel. I submitted my resume to this agency. 

After a few days, Health Carousel called me. I was interviewed by Ms. Nyra Colinares, a vice president of the agency. She was very accomodating and respectful. I was given a job contract, but I didn't sign it yet since Medpro also offered me an employment contract. I finally chose Health Carousel at the end of the day.

Health Carousel guided me through the whole process, starting from the requirements on how to recapture my priority date to embassy interview. Kimberly May Bancolita, a professional nurse and a processing associate of Health Carousel, provided me a list of things I need to comply before my embassy interview. 

There was a short delay in processing my application since I waited until my wife delivered a baby, have a baby's birth certificate and have her own passport as advised by immigration lawyer of Health Carousel. 

The agency really understood the importance of every family member. They ensured that no one gets left behind in my family. Though there are many requirements to comply, but it's worth it. Really. Thanks to the whole staff and the entire organization of Health Carousel. 

My heartfelt gratitude to Kimberly  Sena Bancolita, Roda Mae Cardoso, Maam Nyra Colinares, and to the rest of Health Carousel team who give their best, support and assistance in every way possible.

I believe that God works in mysterious ways. Like many Filipino nurses who were tired of waiting in their U.S. visa applications, there were times when I felt hopeless. I just looked at my wife and daughter as they're my real source of strength and hope. Without a doubt, I can do everything and anything for them.

It's the greatest moment of my life that a long time dream of mine to bring my family to America is finally coming true. My real success is not several places I've visited before, not even a number of nursing exams I've passed, but to be with my family and making sure they've got a lot of opportunities to succeed later in life.

For nurses who are about to apply for their U.S. EB-3 visas and for their upcoming U.S. Embassy interviews, don't lose hope. God is with you! The moment you believe in yourself is the moment that God already gave this wonderful opportunity in your life.

All of us have different stories to share in life, and I wish, my story will give you a lot of hope.  

Don't stop dreaming and believing in yourself! 

Three of us have given immigrant visas to the United States. God is good all the time!

Opposition Would Do Everything To Stop President Rodrigo Duterte Its War On Drugs

Sen. Risa Hontiveros and Sen. Leila de Lima on extrajudicial killings, questioning Philippine National Police Chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa 

By Alon Calinao Dy: Filipinos already knew that the problem on drugs is enormous not only here in Metro Manila but all throughout the country, especially in Eastern Visayas. 

Like 16 millions of Filipinos, I understand the desire of President Rodrigo Duterte to eliminate illegal drugs because it endangered the lives of every Filipino especially the children who are addicted to these prohibited drugs. 

President Duterte taught Filipinos that the war against illegal drugs is so serious that it may lead to a bloody war because those drugs addicts won't stop doing narcotics trade and killing every drug user little by little. 

Frankly, I have never seen someone like President Duterte who is willing to sacrifice his own life in order to stop illegal drug trade in the country. The opposition questioned the Duterte administration its war on drugs and the rise of extrajudicial killings. 

President Duterte himself clarified to everyone that it was not an easy task to eliminate drugs in the country, and every police officer is risking their life to fight these criminals who are also armed with deadly weapons. Thus, the President said to all cops to always protect themselves from harm. 

Duterte also accused Sen. Leila de Lima's personal driver and alleged lover Dayan about his alleged involvement in the drug trade and the one who used to collect money from the drug convicts. However, De lima denied the accusations regarding these issues. 

I don't think Filipinos will trust Sen. De Lima if these allegations are said to be true. I don't see the reasons why she needs to investigate about the extrajudicial killings if her alleged lover is involved on the alleged illegal drug trade and possibly her involvement, too. I don't think the opposition can stop the good plans of President Duterte on its battle against criminality, corruption and illegal drugs.

If Sen. De Lima and Sen. Hontiveros want to investigate about extrajudicial killings, they should go to the provinces of Samar where many people had been killed because political feud through many years. If they are really true advocates of Human Rights, then they should start it there.

Office Of The President Rodrigo Duterte Tweet 'Partner For Change' To Me

By Alon Calinao Dy: I am very proud to receive a message coming from the Office of the President Rodrigo Duterte for being a "partner for change." And again, I wish to thank, Mayor President Rodrigo Duterte for all the things he did in the Philippines.

Like every Filipino, I am just an ordinary citizen who supports and believes to President Duterte's advocacy against corruption, criminality, and illegal drugs. 

I also want to thank my fellow bloggers who supported Pres. Duterte at the very start. I know those talented writers, but they don't want to reveal themselves as they want to remain anonymous. 

As I begin to end this short message, I thank God for giving us a true leader who would do anything for the sake of our people and country. Let's pray for our beloved president. 

I also wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to all netizens out there who would do everything for our beloved president. May you be blessed for your right decision to support President Duterte. 

G O D       B L E S S     E V E R Y O N E!
