MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was a cryptic message, interpreted by many as a Magdalo-type threat to overthrow the government by staging yet another coup attempt.
It started with this Twitter message from defeated Opposition Senatorial candidate Gary Alejano:
In a hospital setting, Code Blue is called when a patient isn’t pumping the oxygenated blood he or she needs to survive. It is likely due to cardiac or respiratory arrest.
We asked code experts to try to make sense of Alejano’s tweet and this is their analysis:
”Remember during the campaign when Alejano and several other Otso Diretso Senatorial candidates staged a mock jet ski trip to Scarborough Shoal? Blue is the color of ocean.”
”So when Alejano mentioned about waiting for Code Blue, he meant waiting for clearance from Opposition leaders like VP Leni Robredo and LP President Kiko Pangilinan to cross the blue ocean to go into self-exile in the South Chin Sea.”
Good riddance we think!
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles. Washington Bureau) – Former Philippine Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales was denied entry into Hong Kong by Chinese Immigration authorities for allegedly being a ‘security risk.’
Morales and former Foreign Affairs Sec. Albert Del Rosario have hauled Chinese President Xi Jinping to the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity.
Morales then decided to fly to Washington, D.C. since she still had a valid visa to enter the U.S. of A.
Alas, Morales, by virtue of her Spanish-sounding surname, was again held in D.C. by Immigration officials on suspicion of being a Mexican trying to enter the U.S. illegally.
Donald Trump hates Mexicans and wants to bar them them from entering the U.S. via the land borders between the U.S. and Mexico (think Great Wall), or via air or ocean.
A spokesperson for Morales said that she and her vacationing family are on their way back to Manila, hoping they would be allowed re-entry into the Philippines.
Talk about double or triple jeopardy…
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Allegations that Bong Go wears a tattoo on his back — proof of his involvement in the illegal drug trade — have all but gone down the drain after the former Special Assistant to President Rodrigo Duterte took off his shirt for the news cameras not once but twice.
But there’s no stopping the Opposition from insisting Go does have a tattoo.
Today, Senator Antonio Trillanes told reporters that Go’s tattoo is not on his back but on his underarm.
“Of course Go can take off his shirt anytime, and nothing will show, because his tattoo is hidden on his underarm,” Trillanes said.
So will Go now take off his shirt and raise his arm for the cameras to prove that the tattoo allegations are false?
