The Woman Who Is Worse Than Manny Pacquiao

imageOKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Filipino boxer and presumptive senator-elect Manny Pacquiao had said that gay people who engage in same sex are “worse than animals.” An American woman legislator is worse than Manny Pacquiao. reports:

State Rep. Sally Kern on Wednesday stood in the Oklahoma House chamber and delivered a speech announcing that gay people are worse than terrorists – again. The 69-year old Baptist was delivering her retirement address and her colleagues did not object or interrupt.

“Yes in 2008 I did say that the homosexual agenda is worse than terrorism,” Kern admitted in her speech Wednesday. “Now we all know that terrorism destroys lives, property and brings devastation. Just look at where we are today in our society. A man who feels like a woman can go into a ladies’ restroom now. A florist, a baker, a photographer are being ruined financially because they wouldn’t participate in a same-sex wedding, since it goes against their sincerely held religious beliefs. Same-sex marriage has been forced on every single state by the courts,” Kern lamented.

She claimed that “in schools all across the nation children are being encouraged to try the homosexual lifestyle and even to play-act being the opposite sex, because they could be a transgender. And homosexuals are even wanting churches to be punished for just sharing what the bible says if it contradicts what they want,” she claimed. Kern did not offer any proof.

“I didn’t apologize in 2008 and I don’t apologize today either because God’s word has not changed. Things are worse today than they were then and I’m afraid they’re going to just get worse.”

Let’s just say that either legislator is no better than the other, period.

And happy retirement, Madam Kern. Good riddance!









Exclusive: The Adobo Chronicles’ Interview With Donald Trump

imageLAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Americans know by now that Donald Trump has embarked on an unconventional campaign to become the Republican Party’s nominee for president of the United States. So far, he has had nothing but success.

To our surprise, Trump has agreed to sit down, one on one, with the editorial board of The Adobo Chronicles in what is probably the most no-holds-barred interview given by the frontrunner candidate since he first announced his presidential bid.

Here is the full transcript of our interview with Trump:

AC: Hillary Clinton has accused you of being racist because of your strong stance against illegal immigration. Any comments?

DT: Hillary has gone mad and desperate. She is a very angry woman. She has blood coming out of her eyes, her ears, her mouth and from her you-know-what.

AC: Do you think you can win a general election without the increasingly powerful Latino vote, considering your disparaging comments against Mexicans and undocumented immigrants?

DT: I love the Mexicans and the Mexicans love me. I have thousands of Mexicans working for me in New York, Florida, Nevada, Hawaii, and in all my hotels and casinos. If they want to keep their jobs, they know what to do come November.

AC: You have have been criticized for your misogynistic comments, including those directed against Rosie O’Donnell and Megyn Kelly. Do you think you can win women’s votes?

DT: I love women and women love me. I love my wife, including my exes. I love my daughter and if I weren’t her father, I’d date her. I have made many women world-famous during the many years that I was owner of the Miss Universe Beauty Pageant. I may be criticized for my looks but I have a very keen eye for beauty. No one is more qualified to be president of America the Beautiful than Donald Trump.

AC: Your political opponents say that you do not have enough foreign policy experience and that your kind of CEO-like diplomacy will never work with other heads of state.

DT: What is your question?

AC: Do you think you will be able to represent Americans on the world stage?

DT: Those who say I have no foreign experience don’t know what they’re talking about. I have properties and businesses all over the world — in Canada, Panama, Scotland, Ireland, Brazil, Indonesia. As a businessman, I’ve dealt with the toughest of people. I know how to deal with the Iranians, the Chinese and with Kim Jong-un of North Korea. I don’t need diplomacy. I say what I want to say. I don’t care.

AC: Recently, you said that you would consider appointing judges who would overturn the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage. Do you think that with your statement, you have permanently alienated yourself from the LGBT community?

DT: I love gay men and women. They love me. I have many friends who are members of the LGBT community. In case they have forgotten, I approved the first-ever transgender person to compete in the Miss Universe (Canada) pageant. I do not have statistics but I am sure many gay men and women work for me in my properties and businesses in America and overseas. If we allow men to marry men or women to marry women, then we are worse than animals… well, okay that wasn’t original, that was Manny Pacquiao’s line. But I love Manny Pacquiao.

AC: Recently, Pope Francis said that “building walls” like what you plan to do along the U.S. Mexican border is un-Christian. Comments?

DT: Coming from someone who lives right in the middle of a walled city — The Vatican — Pope  Francis cannot be serious about his comments, I think.  Look, I don’t want to argue with the Pope. I love the Pope and all Catholics, and I know they love me.  I have many friends who are Catholic.

AC: Finally, what one message would you like to convey to our more than 21 Million readers and followers?

DT: See you all in January, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

Manny Pacquiao Aftermath: Filipinos Engage In Nike War

CEBU CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the Philippines, you are either pro-Manny Pacquiao or anti-Manny Pacquiao, and the conflict has turned to shoes.

Since Nike announced that it was severing its ties with the Filipino champion boxer after his disparaging comments comparing gay men and women to (worse than) animals, Pacquiao fans, bishops, politicians, LGBT advocates and practically people on the street have engaged in what is being called the Nike War.

In Cebu, the Queen City of the South, pro- Pacquiao actvists burned their Nike shoes in protest of the company’s move to fire Pacquiao. In Manila, mall shops selling sports shoes and paraphernalia have reported a sharp increase in Nike sales, apparently from shoppers who agree with Nike’s decision to drop Pacquiao.

Even the  Church has entered the fray, with a Filipino Evangelical bishop criticizing Nike for dropping Pacquiao, saying the megasports brand failed to consider all the heroic accomplishments of the congressman from Sarangani, including his ministry to the poor people. The bishop is calling for Filipinos to boycott Nike.

In the political arena, and unrelated to the Nike controversy,  a senatorial candidate has asked the Philippines’ electoral body, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) to disqualify Pacquiao from the senatorial race because his upcoming April 9 fight with Timothy Bradley in Las Vegas would result in unfair advantage for the boxer in as far as media exposure is concerned. COMELEC rules provide for equal air time for all candidates.

Meanwhile, ADIDAS is reportedly recruiting sales reps to promote their shoes to take advantage of the ongoing Nike controversy in the Philippines.

In the Philippines, they take not only their boxers, but also their shoes , very seriously.
