BATAC, Ilocos Norte – Nagbitiw ng mabibigat na salita sa isang exclusive family gathering ang former First Lady Imelda Marcos laban sa sambayanang Pilipino dahil sa hindi maganda daw na inasal ng mga ito sa pagpapalibing ng dating pangulo Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Ilan sa mga binitiwang mabibigat ay “pison,” “malaking bato,””troso,” “Franklin Drilon,” “sako ng bigas,” at “sama ng loob.”
Ikinagalit ni Ginang Marcos ang mga pagra rally at paninira ng sambayanang Pilipino sa kanilang sikretong pagpapalibing sa kanyang asawa.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Binaril at napatay ang si Zosimo Preltas, pastor ng isang lokal na congregation na naniniwala na hindi tinatablan ng bala ang mga anak ng kanilang diyos na si Apo Diwa, dahil lamang sa pakikipag-palitan niya ng maanghang na salita sa kanyang myembro na kinilala sa pangalan na Nemesio Tirhalio.
Ayon sa mga nakasaksi sa insidente, nag ugat ang alitan sa kanilang diskusyon sa pagpapalibing ni Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani. Di umano, nakarinig sila ng mga maanghang na salita galing sa dalawa tulad ng “Sili!”, “hot sauce,” “paminta,” at “Bicol express.”
Nag init di umano is Tirhalio at binaril sa bibig si Preltas na agad naman itong ikinamatay.
Sinisiyasat pa ng mga awtoridad kung saan tumakas si Tirhalio.
TAGUIG CITY, Philippines – Isang grupo ng mga kabataan ang nagrally isang araw matapos ang libing ng dating pangulong Ferdinand Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani.
Ang Philippine Agriculture Welfare Industry Society (PAWIS) at Kilusan ng mga Indigenous Land Industry (KILI) ay nagsimulang magtipon sa main gate ng Libingan ng mga bayani isang araw makalipas ng libing ng dating pangulo upang ikondena ang paggamit ng mga maling agricultural practices na nakakasira sa kalikasan. Ang kanilang panawagan: “Marcot pa rin.” Ang marcotting ay isang “form of vegetative reproduction that consists in inducing rooting of part of a tree branch.”

DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwalo received the memo and immediately instructed his procurement departments to gather the donated toys from the US for victims of typhoon and return the aid back to the US, saying, “They’ll be needing this more than we do. It’s a war zone there with all these crying and heel kicking.”

DAVAO CITY, Philippines — Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, founder and leader of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, The Name Above Every Name, Inc., who recently admitted it was his voice that Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte heard on board a plane from Japan to the Philippines, censured today the president after receiving news that Duterte admitted yesterday that he was only joking about hearing god.
See CNN Correspondent Ruth Cabal’s report “Duterte: Conversation with God, just a joke
“Don’t joke about hearing my divine voice,” censured Quiboloy, who has for a long time claimed he is the Appointed Son of God. “My words are very expensive commodities. Its valuation is millions. My words are life. I say things, and it will come to pass. Its net worth includes a sprawling hacienda, helicopters, mansions, private jets, etc. The last thing you want to do cheapen my words.”
Quiboloy seems to be telling the truth.
In 2010, the National Geographics featured Quiboloy in a documentary discussing his opulent lifestyle and power. Filipino journalist Che Che Lazaro also did a feature on Quiboloy showing his rags to riches story. At one point Quiboloy offered his jet for use of Duterte.
Other cult leaders of the Philippines, attacked Quiboloy for his pronouncements.
As of the writing of this report, no press release from the Presidential Office concerning Quiboloy’s recent statements as been released.
