WASHINGTON, D.C.  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Critics and political opponents of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found what they were hoping for in the State Department’s newly-released personal emails from the former Secretary of State: something really fishy.

The newest trove of more than 7,000 of Clinton’s emails were released Monday night, showcasing more of the mundane political notes and scheduling requests that have been released earlier.

The emails show Clinton was a little obsessed with criticism from Fox News and was eager to check out NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” and CBS’ “The Good Wife.”  In addition, a series of emails surfaced that could all but damage Clinton’s candidacy for president. It’s all about Gefilte fish.

Gefilte fish is a Jewish dish made from a poached mixture of ground boned fish which is typically eaten as an appetizer. The dish is popular on Shabbat and Holidays such as Passover, although they may be consumed throughout the year. Some versions of Gefilte fish are baked in a Bundt cake pan and made with Matzo meal and carrots. The dish usually uses white fish, but it could be made with other fish like salmon.

Now, whoever is anointed Republican nominee for president in the 2016 elections will have enough amunition to wage a  strong campaign against the presumed Democratic nominee, Hillary. Thanks to the fishy emails.



MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Can you imagine Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump saying ‘F*ck You’ in one of their campaign speeches? Of course not.

But that is not the case with Philippine presidential candidate Mar Roxas, President NoyNoy Aquino’s Secretary of the Interior and Local Government, and his anointed presidential successor.

In one public speech he made in 2008, Roxas was seen and heard cursing and cussing. “P*tang ina, ano ba ito?” (What the f*ck is this?) he screamed. It was caught on live TV and  video-taped. It has, since then, gone viral on YouTube.

Now that he is running for president in the 2016 elections, and campaigning under the mantra of Aquino’s ‘Daang Matuwid,’ (straight path), Roxas is having a very difficult time erasing that embarrassing moment from the minds of the religious and moralistic Filipino voters.

Indeed, it was a regrettable moment that now haunts Roxas’ campaign to be the next president of the Philippines.

In any case, if elected, he would be the world’s first ‘cussing president’ and that could be a game changer in the future of world politics.


Google is now Alphabet
Google is now Alphabet

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – So Google is now part of Alphabet, a new holding company that will manage Google and all of its other products. Why is the new company called Alphabet?

Google/Alphabet CEO Larry Page says it’s because Alphabet means a “collection of letters that represent language, one of humanity’s most important innovations, and is the core of how we index with Google search!”

But the domain name for Alphabet is — not (which is currently getting hammered with traffic it seems).

It looks like neither Google nor Alphabet own — BMW does. Alphabet is part of the BMW group and a business mobility solution with a focus on fleet management and financing. Alphabet was founded in 1997, so it’s unlikely that the company will give up its long-established domain name.

The bottom line is, someone at Google didn’t think of googling ‘Alphabet’ before he or she recommended the new name for the giant Internet search company.

Total fail.
