NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – After all, that brouhaha regarding Philippine Leila De Lima being named among the Top 50 World Leaders by Fortune Magazine is just, well, a bruhaha (translation: witchity joke).
Many Filipinos have criticized the inclusion of the lady Senator in its 2018 list despite her being charged with a drug crime, violations of law during her various tenures in government service, and other destabilization efforts against the Administration of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Well, it turns out the May, 2018 issue of Fortune was actually printed on April 1, 2018 (see photo), leading people to believe that the whole thing was a hoad — an April Fool’s joke.
It is turly, unFORTUNE-ate.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – All we are saying is give peace a chance. And that’s exactly what’s brewing between North and South Korea as the divided nation prepares to end a decades-long war.
Not too far away from Korea, the Philippines is similarly headed towards national unification.
If things go as planned, there will be no more Yellows and no more Dutertards, just Filipinos.
The remnants of the Yellow army, represented by a few members of the political opposition and biased media trying to hang on to long-lost power and influence, are now in talks with the Duterte government and its overwhelming number of supporters.
Realizing that theirs is a lost cause, the Yellows have expressed willingness to go into oblivion and let politics and history take their course, marked by overwhelming satisfaction with how President Duterte is running the country.
Sa ikauunlad ng bayan, magtatago na lang ang mga Dilawan. (For the nation’s progress, the Yellows will now retreat, permanently)
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Subject to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files – In a single tweet, Ellen Tordesillas of Vera Files accused Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte of supplying weapons to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Duterte is facing a complaint before ICC for alleged crimes against humanity.
Tordesillas’ latest tirade against Duterte follows her previous accusation that the president is the No. 1 source of fake news.
The Adobo Chronicles talked to Tordesillas as she was leaving a television studio where she figured in an embarrassing interview where she aaaah’d and uuuuhm’d when asked about her working definition of fake news.
Tordesillas said that the weapons supplied by Duterte to ICC includes Uzi’s, semi-automatic rifles, multi-calibre guns and other assault ammunition.
The Adobo Chronicles could not immediately fact-check Tordesillas’ claim.
