HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) . Today’s top headlines are all about millionaires and billionaires:
It’s just four days until DONALD TRUMP, billionaire, will be elected in an unprecedented U.S. election that has divided the country into two almost equal parts. Trump will be president of an exclusive gentlemen’s club that will ban Mexicans and Muslims, grope women, let non-club members die without the needed health insurance, outlaw same-sex marriage, banish the handicapped, start a nuclear war, extend China’s Great Wall, and fire all employees of call centers and BPOs, including those in the Philippines.
Speaking of the PHILIPPINES, a Filipina widow of a wealthy American was tagged by President Rodigo Roa Duterte yesterday as one of those behind alleged efforts in the United States to unseat him.
It was the first time that Duterte provided specifics about the personalities behind the supposed ouster moves. Malacañang had promised to unmask the individuals.
While no name was mentioned, the description fitted that of LOIDA NICOLAS-LEWIS whose husband, billionaire businessman Reginald Lewis, died in 1993. Lewis is the sister of Imelda Nicolas, who headed the commission on overseas Filipinos during the administration of Benigno Aquino III.
Addressing the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, Duterte also identified billionaire GEORGE SOROS as a financier of efforts to pin him down for gross human rights violations.
You see, the world’s enemies are not China or Russia, or the United States or the United Nations. It’s the f*lthy moneyed people that let their millions and billions talk.
