Baguio City Declares NPA, LP Persona Non Grata

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – The summer capital of the Philippines and the rest of the Cordillera Region have taken the lead in isolating members of the New People’s Army (NPA) and all groups that are perceived to be anti-government and anti-Filipino, including the very liberal Liberal Party.

Baguio Mayor Benjamin Magalong announced a new policy that declares the NPA and the Liberal Party to be “Persona Non Grata.”  As such, members of these two groups are off limits to the City of Pines.

The new policy comes just weeks before Baguio launches its popular month-long Panagbenga Festival which easily attracts one million people.

Magalong said anyone associated with NPA and LP seen roaming the streets of Baguio will be immediately arrested and detained in newly-constructed jail cells next to the city’s dumpsite in Irisan.

Talk about nabubulok (non-recyclable)!


Final Episode Of “Ang Probinsyano” Airs March 30, New Teleserye Planned

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The longest-running teleserye on Philippine television will finally come to an end!

FPJ’s “Ang Probinsyano” which started airing in September of 2015 on ABS-CBN, will bow out with its final epidsode on March 30, 2020, coinciding with the franchise expiration of the broadcast network owned by the Lopez oligarchy.

While there are desperate efforts to convince Congress to renew the franchise, including an online petition started by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP), the producers of the popular teleserye said that they’ve all but run out of script ideas to keep it going.

One of the mainstays of the show, Miss Susan Roces, mother of Senator Grace Poe, told The Adobo Chronicles that in the final episode, the main character Cardo, played by Coco Martin, will finally die — killed by the bad elements.

Sources close to the powers that be at ABS-CBN said that should the network’s franchise be renewed, the plan is to start an all-new, improved teleserye titled “Six In The City,” starring Vice Ganda, Lea Salonga, Anne Curtis, Agot Isidro, Ogie Alcasid, and Mutya Ng Masa Doris Bigornia.

Staru tuned!


Donald Trump Has Separate Messages For Duterte, Robredo

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Donald Trump has separate messages for Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President Leni Robredo.

Despite a U. S. Senate resolution urging the State Department to ban from entering the U.S. Philippine officials and others who had a hand in the detention of Senator Leila De Lima, Trump yet again reiterated his invitation for Duterte to visit The White House.

“Please come to the U.S.,” Trump told Duterte.

As for Robredo, Trump has this to say: “Please stop coming to the U.S.”

Since assuming the Vice Presidency, Robredo has made several trips to the U.S. — most of them unofficial — upon the invitation of private groups and individuals sympathetic to her and her political party’s liberal causes.

It wasn’t clear whether the U.S. State Department has cancelled Robredo’s U.S. visa.
