    The public trust rating of President Rodrigo Duterte remains high despite the controversies he is currently facing.

    Based on the latest survey of Pulse Asia, 83% of the survey respondents still trust the leadership of Duterte; 13% are undecided while only 5% distrust him.

    The survey was conducted from December 6 to 11 in 1,200 respondents from various parts of the country.

    Some of the significant issues that made headlines before the survey was conducted were the resignation of Vice President Leni Robredo as a Cabinet member, the Supreme Court’s decision to allow Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and the investigation of the Senate and Lower House on the death of Albuera Mayor Rolando Espinosa. — UNTV News & Rescue

    Most Filipinos support admin’s anti-drug war despite awareness of EJKs — Pulse Asia

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

    PULSE ASIA SURVEY

    MANILA, Philippines — Eight in every 10 Filipinos interviewed by the Pulse Asia survey nationwide support the anti-drug war of the Duterte administration. Two percent is unsupportive while the remaining percentage is indecisive. The survey was taken from September 24 to 30 2017.

    However, though many support the anti-drug war, 73% from all areas and classes believe in extrajudicial killings (EJKs) while the campaign is being implemented.

    This percentage increased from the 67% in June 2017.

    Many Filipinos are also aware of the case of Kian delos Santos, the 17-year old boy who was killed in a questionable anti-illegal drug operation by some members of the Northern Police District on August 16.

    Seventy-six percent also expressed concern about the possibility that the case of Kian might happen to them or their families because of the anti-drug war.

    The Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director General Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa admitted that there are those who were killed in the anti-drug war but these are not EJKs.

    “Critics keep on labeling the casualties as EJKs to the public. EJK, EJK so that is what the people think. Those who die in the drug, we don’t deny that. However [it becomes different because] we don’t share the same meaning when we say EJK,” said Dela Rosa.

    President Duterte has been saying he is unfazed by ratings and will continue working to deliver what he promised to the Filipinos.

    “Now, the ratings, though I would get zero, I don’t care. I will still work because that is what I promised. If I die or be imprisoned because of that, I’m sorry. What matters is that I’m satisfied after fulfilling what I promised for the Philippines, that is my personal satisfaction,” said the president.  — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

    LP senators deny hand on alleged ouster plot vs. PRRD

    MANILA, Philippines — Senators allied with the Liberal Party (LP) have once again denied having plans to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.

    According to LP President Sen. Francis Pangilinan, the president just wants to divert the public’s attention away from the issues he is facing.

    “Ang concern natin dito ay ang conspiracy na nauwi sa pagpapalusot ng P6.5 billion na shabu sa BOC kasabwat ang mga drug syndicate. Ang conspiracy na iyon ang dapat ipinapaliwanag ng gobyerno,” said Pangilinan.

    (Our concern is the conspiracy that resulted in the entry of the P6.5 billion worth of shabu at the BOC in conspiracy with drug syndicates. And that conspiracy must be explained by the government.)

    For Sen. Bam Aquino, Liberal Party members have nothing to do with any effort to oust the president, adding that Duterte may just be making up the ouster plot issue.

    “Gaya ng kaniyang mga paratang sa bank account ni Senator Trillanes, he probably also made that up. Gawa-gawa lang po iyan. Hindi po totoo (Just like with the bank account of Senator Trillanes, he probably also made that up.  It’s just made up. These are not true.),” he said.

    Aquino also noted that criticisms against members of the opposition are not a good sign.

    “Secretary Aguirre has even created a group against what he calls the enemies of the state, including what he calls the ‘yellowtards’. This is already a political persecution,” said the senator.

    Meanwhile, according to the former chief of the Philippine National Police (PNP) and now senator, Panfilo Lacson, any plot to oust the president is impossible to succeed.

    “Pwedeng may nag-iisip, pero will they succeed? Ang 82% na approval at trust rating ng Pangulo, mukhang mahirap mangyari ang ma-oust siya through either people power or… military naman, unlikely because he’s so close with the military,” said Lacson.

    (It’s possible that someone is thinking about it, but will they succeed? With the 82% approval and trust rating of the president, it would be difficult to oust him through people power or…military is unlikely to do that because he’s so close to the military.)

    Solicitor General Jose Calida initially divulged that some groups and personalities are colluding to destabilize the president. — Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    Trillanes offshore accounts being used for destabilization ops

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Sunday, October 1st, 2017

    FILE PHOTO: Senator Antonio Trillanes IV

    MANILA, Philippines — A country against money laundering allegedly gave the information to President Rodrigo Duterte regarding the offshore accounts of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

    This was revealed by the chief executive in an interview on the state-run television, PTV last Friday night.

    Trillanes allegedly closed some of his accounts and that the hidden funds were possibly used for destabilization efforts against the Duterte administration, such as organizing anti-government protests and paying witnesses like retired SPO3 Arthur Lascaña and self-confessed hitman, Edgar Matobato.
    “Based on analysis, the funds being laundered by Trillanes and his group may not be for their personal use, but rather, it is being used for their cause and possibly to destabilize government by paying for witnesses and funding destabilization operations,” said President Duterte.
    The chief executive added that in the future, he will release more evidence regarding the said offshore accounts.

    On the other hand, Trillanes said in a statement that Duterte’s claims are just new rumors to divert the public’s attention from the investigation regarding the president’s billions of pesos worth of hidden wealth. — UNTV News & Rescue
