If you can’t beat ‘em...

AJLPP-New York | Rene Sarmiento’s complete transformation from a respected human rights lawyer to what the public perceives today as an alleged lying and cheating stooge of Gloria in the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is the most astounding reality that has cropped from the just recent elections.

The biggest letdown on Sarmiento, to those who knew him during the days of martial law, was that he was caught lying through his teeth on national television yet still tries to justify what was patently an anomalous situation as a normal course of events in the Lanao elections.

Whale slaughter in Southern Oceans

moby | Why is a Northern Hemisphere nation, JAPAN, permitted to flagrantly slaughter whales in Southern Hemisphere waters? Perhaps widespread inaction in the face of blatant Japanese smugness, arrogance, contempt for the environment, the International Whaling Commission and other nations is related to the world’s toleration of criminal wars resulting in hundreds of thousands of innocent human casualties! What chance do whales have if innocent HUMAN BEINGS are treated as expendable? more...  1 Comments
