I've posted screencaps, but let me break down the last part of that speech, where #Duterte revealed he was angry and pikon about OUR frontliners going public with their call for a #TimeOut and #ECQ because of the current Covid-19 response IS NOT WORKING. A thread.
"You did not need to go into raising your hands, revolution revolution. If you think this can be solved by revolution, go ahead, so I will be calling all people who love their country to come forward to work for me, 'yung mga healthworkers to come to help." #DefendFrontliners
"But there is no need for 1,000 of you guys, telling us what to do, publicly. You could've just written us a letter. You know it's the resources. And pera, may gusto kayong bilhin ko, ang problema, ang bulsa ko butas na yung isa. Dahil we have suffered economically."

The Cayetano Dynasty is the top earning family in the 21st Century Era of Politicians. Their accumulated net salary from their years in service is at Php 481M, highest in the PH

Comparing the top 5 from the previous data with Max of 50 years in service(to lessen inflation rate multiplier), it shows that it only took 32 Years or less for the DUTERTE and CAYETANO dynasty to earn atleast Php 424M.

In a brazen attack on #PressFreedom #Duterte has shut down the #ABSCBN network

This has generated tremendous resistance in the #Philippines as well as some incredible artwork

This is a thread containing just some examples from our talented #Filipino friends Image
This is probably the most widely shared piece of artwork

The broadcasting tower has been replaced by a fist raised in defiance

It’s simple but clever and highly impactful
This drawing has also been hugely popular

It references the Hunger Games quote ‘If we burn, you burn with us’

In that respect it’s reminiscent of artwork from the Hong Kong protests

Unlike Hong Kong protest art it hints at the possibility of violent resistance

I would buy defense stocks while they’re cheap.

#China’s economy will suffer as exogenous demand plummets. To maintain full(er) employment, they’re likely to conscript people.

They may even offer to send soldiers to #coronavirus/#COVID19🦠 hot zones as a soft power strategy.
… understand this: #China’s Communist Party sees moments like these as opportunities.

America’s divided political leadership — inc. Congressional Republicans who, like #RushLimbaugh, are apparently smarter than world renowned epidemiologists — leaves us open to be leapfrogged…
… an example: #POTUS #Trump did the smart thing in imposing a #TravelBan on #Europe🇪🇺.

Europe, please impose one on the US, too! We *must* stop non-essential travel.

But while Europeans nursed their hurt feelings, #China promoted THIS👇 story…

Yesterday commemorated Jose Rizal’s vision for #PhilippineSovereignty. I am asking all our followers to RT these messages. Rizal was a Patriot executed by Spain for speaking out for Filipino freedom. He was a European educated writer, thinker & leader of the Revolution.
#Rizal identified with the people & sought for the identity of the original Philippine people. His vision helped forge a nation. But U.N., U.S. & NGOs still treat Philippines like a colony.
It is like the #OpiumWars in China. British & other Europeans forced China to grow Opium & allow its people to consume it. Addiction & corruption destroy national character. Chinese rose up; killed for resisting enslavement to opiates. Now Western agencies doing it again!

Yale history prof @TimothyDSnyder outlined 20 lessons from the 20th Century on preventing tyranny from overcoming democracy. His book is a must-read for #TheResistance:… (Thread)
1/ Do not obey in advance. Do not acquiesce or conform to the new regime, offering to comply before compliance is required by law. Hitler's party consolidated power b/c too many citizens offered anticipatory obedience.
2/ Defend Institutions. Trump has aggressively sought to undermine all independent institution that opposes his admin, including the free press, the judiciary, DOJ, FBI, & #Mueller. Choose an institution you cherish and take its side.

#THREAD: I am at the #COMMA2017 content summit conference. I'll be discussing #ASEAN integration, the digital media landscape and the #millennial agenda.

What is the future of news and media in ASEAN?

Stay tuned!
#CeritalahASEAN started with Ceritalah 25 years ago in the early 90s - during the height of print media. In those days, The Economist, The Straits Times, The New York Times, were really flourishing. Much of the 80s and 90s, I met with and talked to editors across the world.
Those publications were really dynamic and powerful.

But we've seen those publications come down. WSJ stopped printing in Asia. Jakarta Globe stopped printing in 2015. KiniBiz, Volume in Thailand also stopped printing....

What has come up to replace those institutions?
