Exclusive: PNoy Reacts To Senate Committee Report On Dengvaxia

2A4F842B-8A75-4A2C-809E-7D0A2CAADE59QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Ex-President NoyNoy Aquino finally broke his silence and reacted to the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee’s report on the botched Dengvaxia vaccination program which put the lives of over 800,000 Filipino school children at risk.

Senator Dick Gordon’s committee recommended that criminal charges be filed against Aquino and key members of his administration.

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles at his Times Street residence in Quezon City, Aquino said:

”Kung alam ko lang na aabot sa ganito, sana nagpasagasa na lang ako sa tren.” (Had I known it would come to this, I should have just let myself be runover by a train.)

Aquino was, of course, referring to his botched promise that if the MRT project during his administration would not be completed on time, he’d let himself be runover by a train.

Is that promise finally coming to fruition?


Optometrist Association of the Philippines Develops New Eye Test for Jaundice

Jaundice is a sign of an underlying disease process. 

But there is another kind of Jaundice that affects Filipinos of a twisted political orientation.  It’s called the Yellow Cult or Dilawan in the vernacular.

Today, the Optometrist Association of the Philippines announced a breakthrough in diagnosing the Dilawan-type jaundice.

9484EA56-8D13-495D-8FBA-BCA0CEA38E14.jpegThe new technology involves the usual eye chart used by optometrists to check one’s vision.  The difference is that for persons afflicted with the Dilawan jaundice, the letters ‘L’ and ‘P’ automatically become magnified with a yellow circle.

So what are you waiting for? Visit your optometrist today and have your eyes checked. Prevention is always better than a cure!

EJKs In The Philippines Worse Than Reported By The News Media

7157292F-021E-4A1D-8D96-1ADBFC70083EMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The extra-judicial killings (EJKs) in the Philippines could even be worse than the 7,000 to 15,000 deaths some claim to be the result of President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs.

Now, it appears that EJKs could reach hundreds of thousands, even millions.

As a result of the Philippine government’s all-out war against Dengue, mosquitoes carrying the dreaded virus have been exterminated by agencies of the government.  Even private homes and citizens  have actively participated in the killing of mosquitoes in areas where they abound. All this, without due process.

Senator Antonio Trillanes and Representative Gary Alejano are reportedly considering amending their complaint filed in the International Criminal Court accusing Duterte of crimes against humanity.  The duo wants to include EJKs resulting from the Duterte government’s efforts to eradicate Dengue-carrying mosquitoes across the country.
