Trump Supporter Who Made Nazi Salute Assumed Donald Was A Hitler Descendant

imageCHICAGO, Illinois (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The woman who was photographed making a Nazi salute at the canceled Donald Trump rally in Chicago last week thought that the Republican presidential candidate was a direct descendant of Adolf Hitler.

The photo showing Birgitt Peterson, 69, in a Trump t-shirt, eyes locked with a protester, her right arm raised skyward and palm faced downward, immediately went viral. Netizens commented that the photo is proof of Trump’s ‘fascist’ tendencies which have attracted many supporters like Peterson.

For the first time since the photograph went viral, Peterson spoke out and explained why she did what she did.

The West Berlin-born Peterson claimed she was a genealogist and had recently researched Trump’s heritage. It is no secret that Trump comes from a German and Scottish background.

Peterson’s research further established Trump’s direct German lineage:

Donald’s grandfather, Friederich (Fred) Trump. was born on March 14, 1869 in Kallstadt, Pfalz, Germany. He immigrated in 1885 to United States from Hamburg aboard the ship “Eider” and became a U.S. citizen in 1892 in Seattle, Washington. He died of influenza on 30 Mar 1918 in New York City, New York.

Donald’s grandmother, Elizabeth Christ, was born on October 10, 1880 in Kallstadt, Pfalz, Germany and died on 6 Jun 1966 in Queens, New York.

Peterson got excited and started to research if Donald’s lineage had any direct connection with Hitler. Her research got briefly interrupted because she had to leave her home to attend the Trump rally.

“When I made the Nazi sign, I was still in my genealogy research mode. It was a subconscious act on my part when confronted by anti-Trump supporters,” she said.

Peterson apologized for her reflex action, but said she will continue her research because she still feels that Donald was a direct descendant of the Führer.


It’s In The Stars: Hillary Clinton And Bongbong Marcos Will Become Presidents

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – When it comes to celebrity deaths, it is believed that they always come in three’s.  But as far as becoming president, it comes in two’s.

With that said, we are now predicting that Hillary Clinton will become the next president of the United States, and while Bongbong Marcos, the son of the late Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos, is a candidate for vice president, he will eventually become president of his country.

It’s in the stars.  We only have to look back at history.

George W. Bush (the 43rd president) is the son of George Bush (the 41st president).

John Quincy Adams (the 6th president) was the son of John Adams (the 2nd president).

Benjamin Harrison (the 23rd president) was the grandson of William Henry Harrison (the 9th president).

James Madison (the 4th president) and Zachary Taylor (the 12th president) were second cousins.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (the 32nd president) was a fifth cousin of Theodore Roosevelt (the 26th president).

Ergo, Hillary, the wife of  Bill Clinton (the 42nd president), will win in this year’s elections and become the 45th president).

In the Philippines, incumbent President NoyNoy Aquino is the son of former President Cory Aquino.

Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is the daughter of former President Diosdado Macapagal.

In as far as this year’s Philippine presidential elections are concerned, while Senator Grace Poe has consistently topped national polls, her rival, former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, could get elected.  He is the son for former Senator Gerry Roxas who is the only son of Manuel Roxas, the first president of the Third Philippine Republic.

If it’s in the stars, you can bet on it!



Filipinos Take Offense On Donald Trump’s Comments on Pig’s Blood

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has flouted official histories and facts, claiming, for example, that thousands of Muslims celebrated in New Jersey on Sept. 11, and that the Department of Labor cooks the unemployment books and that the real jobless rate is 23 percent.

On Friday night, Trump embraced another urban legend, claiming that an American general summarily executed terrorists with bullets dipped in pig’s blood a century ago.  He presented it as an example of how brutal toughness toward terrorists was the way to safeguard the United States. Mr. Trump did not mention any context, but the unconfirmed tale is generally set in the Philippines, where American forces after the Spanish-American War faced resistance in Muslim provinces.

Well, the Filipinos took offense over the statement of Trump.

Not only did they question the authenticity of the legend cited by Trump. They also were greatly offended because Filipinos take pride in their authentic cuisine known as dinuguan (pictured). It is a traditional dish cooked with pig’s blood.

Filipinos living in the U.S. vowed to mail Trump packages containing dinuguan as a way to let the Republican presidential frontrunner know about their sentiments.
