REMEMBER BATAAN. IPAGLABAN ANG PILIPINAS!!

JFAV UPDATES

April 04, 2018

Salute to Heroes of Philippine Sovereignty and American International Solidarity for Rule of Law

Los Angeles- REMEMBER BATAAN. IPAGLABAN ANG PILIPINAS!!

On April 9, 2019, the 77th anniversary of Bataan Death March, we would like to salute three people and recognize their heroism at this time of Philippine history that sovereignty is under attack by China and Filipino traitors under the wing of Duterte:

WW II Filipino American veteran Aquilino Delen and all veterans and their survivors— for their selfless courage to defend every land and territory of the country despite overwhelming superiority of the enemy. They had the option to surrender Bataan and make an easy and bloodless capture but they chose martyrdom if only to protect democracy.

They never collaborated the way Duterte does. They never conceded to the enemy and received bribes through onerous loans and sellout of West Philippine Sea.

WW II veteran Ukranian American Mike Mewkalo and all American veterans— for choosing to fight side by side with the Filipinos and defending the democratic institutions that were established to prepare the imminent Philippine Republic with with its own Constitution and government that enshrine human rights and dignity.

Free Leila De Lima, Stop Political Persecution

US Representative Jackie Speier and key US legislators — for consistently fighting for equity for Filipino veterans who yearn equal pay, benefits and recognition for their war-time service.

And lately for introducing a US Congressional resolution demanding the immediate release of detained Philippine Senator Leila De Lima, and calling out Duterte and his murderous government to end extrajudicial killings and gross human rights violations.

China and Duterte may look powerful for now. But in the end, it is the heroism and courage of ordinary people like the Filipino WW II veterans who will dictate the final outcome. As one activist once said, “the next best thing to being free is the struggle to be free.”

On the anniversary of Bataan Day, OFWs once again reclaim Filipinos right for full and unconditional sovereignty on all parts of the national territory. It’s for pride, economic sustenance and most of all dignity to be fighting for the nation and her beloved people.

THE VOICE OF FREEDOM; BATAAN HAS FALLEn

CULTURAL NOTES
April 9, 2019

BATAAN HAS FALLEN

( NOTE; In honor of the 77th FAll of Bataa and as a tribute to all heroes of World War II who gave their all so we can enjoy the freedom we have today, we reprinted the broadcast of the Voice of Freedon from Corregidor, April 9, 1942. We salute you..–Editors)

####

Radio Broadcast – Voice of Freedom – Malinta Tunnel – Corregidor – 9 April 1942:

‘Bataan has fallen. The Philippine-American troops on this war-ravaged and bloodstained peninsula have laid down their arms.

With heads bloody but unbowed, they have yielded to the superior force and numbers of the enemy.

The world will long remember the epic struggle that Filipino and American soldiers put up in the jungle fastness and along the rugged coast of Bataan.

They have stood up uncomplaining under the constant and grueling fire of the enemy for more than three months. Besieged on land and blockaded by sea, cut off from all sources of help in the Philippines and in America, the intrepid fighters have done all that human endurance could bear.

For what sustained them through all these months of incessant battle was a force that was more than merely physical. It was the force of an unconquerable faith—something in the heart and soul that physical hardship and adversity could not destroy.

It was the thought of native land and all that it holds most dear, the thought of freedom and dignity and pride in these most priceless of all our human prerogatives.

The adversary, in the pride of his power and triumph, will credit our troops with nothing less than the courage and fortitude that his own troops have shown in battle.

Our men have fought a brave and bitterly contested struggle. All the world will testify to the most superhuman endurance with which they stood up until the last in the face of overwhelming odds.

But the decision had to come. Men fighting under the banner of unshakable faith are made of something more than flesh, but they are not made of impervious steel.

The flesh must yield at last, endurance melts away, and the end of the battle must come.

Bataan has fallen, but the spirit that made it stand—a beacon to all the liberty-loving peoples of the world—cannot fall.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

By Arturo P. Garcia

According to Felipe Buencamino on Facebook, “Well, he finally reappeared. Heard it on the radio while driving home. Report said he landed in Davao a little after 8PM this evening.

Report did not say whether he came directly from Manila or by way of Manila from Guangzhou’s Fuda Cancer Hospital where he may have gone for a redo of the botched circumcision he claimed he underwent last February.

In case you’ve forgotten about the circumcision story….

**

Last February, Manila Times columnist Kit Tatad wrote that Fentanylla went to Fuda Cancer Hospital in Guangzhou, China.
Fentanylla didn’t take kindly to Tatad’s report so he reacted in his usual manner.

“Totoo nagpunta ako ng China. Totoo nagpunta ako ng hospital. Nagpatuli ako.

Pagkatagal bumalik. Kaya pumunta ako, Tatad. Sabihin mo totoo iyan.

Pinaputol ko ‘yan, ‘yan malinis, no dangling ano. Putangina mo,” he ranted and cursed.”

***

Digong and his PR crew knows how to enthrall the public. Thus be provoke the public with his words and pronouncement and he make the public and his enemies about his intentions.

He is very much like General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Even his closest subalterns cannot guess his intentions. Thus they have to follow him.
Even in the thick of battles, he does unexpected things. That’s the reason he was called “Stonewall” He is like a stonewall that you cannot second guess.

But the bad thing, that’s how he died. He rode on night in the thick of the battle to look at the situation. He was shot by his own men.

Tragic, yes. But that’s how he lived and died.

**

During our weekly TALAKAYAN CLUB last Thursday, there was a spirited discussions about the health and whereabout of PDUT.

Dr. Art Flores explained that,”the public has the right to know the state of health of the President. It is in the Constitution that he has to disclose publicly his health conditions.”

David Rockello explained,”But who are we to force him. We cannot pressure him to disclose his health conditions.”

As the TALAKAYAN moderator, I also explained,” PDUT is the oldest President that the Philippines ever had. He is even older than Trump or Reagan.”

**

I also added, ” Malacanang is right. The President has a very brutal schedule. In the light of the Marawi Crisis, he is entitled to have some rest.”

But even in the United States, the state of health of the President is a well kept secret. In some instances the White House keep this secret on the public.

President Woodrow Wilson has a stroke and was incapacitated in the early 1900’s but the public did not know. But his associates continued governing the country from the White house.

**

The public did not know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt was a paraplegic but the public as never informed about this.

Political analyst says today, if the public only knew that FDR was a cripple he would not have been a President and will not even been re-elected four times as a President. But the media and the his close associates covered for him.

Even John F. Kennedy has a very grave health conditions but the public never know about this. He was taking pain killers for his war time injuries to keep him sane and lucid.

President Reagan’s early Alzheimer’s disease were kept way from the public during his two year term. IT was only revealed when he retired and as away from the public.

**

But the problem with the advent of the social media, this further complicates the situation. We have the Wikileaks and other sources that serves the public information.

But the problem remains. Nothing is confirmed. And everything becomes rumor mills churning dis-information, false information and fake news.

In the Philippines and abroad, the state of health of PDUT is the toast of his political enemies and rumor mongers. HIs statements and of his offcie does even help allay the rumors.

**

During martial law, the state of health of Dictator Marcos was the subject of rumors by the FIlipinos. It was said that DFM contracted venereal disease when he had sex with Miss. Korea during the Miss Universe Contest in Manila in 1974.

The story said, his Doctor gave him a dosage of drugs that resulted in the breakdown of his kidney that is why he contracted Lupus. In anger, he had his physician liguidated.

Later in 1983, he was operated on. He was in hospital when Senator Ninoy Aquino was assassinated at the Manila International Airport by the orders of Imelda Marcos. The rest is history.

**

As a de javu, the state of health of PDUT is now the subject of rumors. And the social media and even the Office of the President is stoking the fire of uncertainties.

The situation becomes more complicated with the absence of the President and the declaration of martial law in Mindanao. PDUT has a lot of surprises for the people.

But in the end the truth will eventually come out. And as always they say;

“The truth shall make us free.”

GULO AT INGAY SA GITNANG SILANGAN

SALAG/BANAT

GULO AT INGAY SA GITNANG SILANGAN

Ni Arturo P.Garcia

Nagulantang ang buong daigdig ng diplomasya nang ipahayag ng Saudi Arabiat apat pang ibang bansa sa Gitnang Silangan ang pagputol ng kanilang diplomatiko at ekonomikong relasyon sa Qatar noong Hunyo 5.

Ang Qatar ang ika-aapat na pinakamalaking may produksyon ng langis sa daigidig. Tahanan din ito ng 170 bilyonaryo dahil dito. Ito rin ang base ng Al Jazeera, ang pinakamalaganap at respetadong pahayagang Arabo sa daigdig.

Nagimbal ang buong mundo dahil sa desisyong ito ng Saudi Arabia, Libya, Egypt at ng United Arab Emirates (UAE) dahil napalaki ng implikasyon nito sa Gulf States at sa Gitnang Silangan.

**

Nasa Qatar din ang pinakamalaking base militar ng US. Mula dito nagmumula ang mga pandigmang eroplano na nagbobomba sa mga kaaway ng US mula Syria hanggang Afghanistan.

Kaya nga maraming nagulat ng kumampi kaagad si Trump sa Saudi Arabia. Pagkatapos namin ng ilang araw, kumampi naman ito sa Qatar at ngayon ay nakikipagnegasosayon sa dalwang panig para maresolba ang krisis sa Gitnang Silangan.

Para sa Pilipinas, ang may higit na 2 milyong manggagawa nasa Middle East ay apektado ng krisis na ito Nakansela lahat ng lipad ng eroplano papuntang Qatar at paalis mula dito.

***

May higit sa 200,000 Pilipino na nasa Qatar. Ito ang ikaapat na malaking populasyon ng mga OFW sa Gitnang Silangan. Nanguguna ang Saudi Arabia na may higit 1 milyong Pilipno sa bansang ito.

Kaagad na ipnagbawal ng Pilipinas ang pagpapadala ng mga OFW sa Qatar. Pero kaagad namang binawi ng DOLE ang utos dahil wala namang matinding gulo na naganap mula Hunyo 5.

Hanggang ngayon nagsisikap pa ang Kuwait at ang Amerika na lutasin ang suliranin sa diplomasya. Ngunit hanggang wala pa ring nangyayari sa usapan.

**

Ano ang dahilan ng gulong ito at sa desisyon ng Saudi laban sa Qatar?

Ang sabi ng iba, nagalit ang Saudi dahil sa nagsasariling pasya ng Qatar. Sumusuporta ito sa mga kalaban ng mga kapwa bansang Arabe.

Sinuportahan ng Qatar si Assad ng Syria, ang Yemen na kaaway ng Saudi, ang Muslim Brotherhood sa Egypt at ang Iran. Suportado din nito ang Turkey. Dahil dito, suportado ng Iran at Turkey ang Iraq sa nagaganap na iringang diplomatiko.

Sa katunayan, nagpadala ng tropa ang Turkey sa Qatar laban sa bantang pagsalakay ng Saudi. Gayundin ang IRan ay nagpadala ng kinakailngang mga pagkain tulad ng gulay at prutas sa Qatar na ginigipit ng kalapit bansa nito.

**

Pinaratangan naman ng Turkey ang UAE sa pagsuporta sa kudeta laban sa Turkey, Nagpadala daw ng higit tatlong bilyong dolyar( $3B) ang UAE sa mga militar na nagkudeta laban kay Erdogan sa Turkey noong 2016.

Subalit ang sabi ng marami, kinagagalit ng mga bansang Arabe ang pagbabalita ng Al Jazerra laban sa kanila, lalo na ang Saudi Arabia at Egypt. Sa katunayan, ipgabawal na ang Al Jazeera sa mga bansang ito.

Ngunit ang sinasabi ng maraming nagaanalisa sa suliranin ay galit ang inggit ang Saudi sa Qatar dahil maliit nga itong bansa pero napakamakapangyarihan at hindi maaring diktahan lalo ng Saudi.

**

Nababanala din ang mga trsdiyunal na bansang Arabe dahil liberal ang pamamalakad ng Qatar.

Mas malaya ang mga Qatari at moderno hindi tulad ng mga bansang Arabe na ang pamamalakad ay lubhang sinauna. Kaya nga gusto ng mga bansang Arabe na ito na paluhurin ang Qatar.

Ayon naman sa mga Qatari, “HINDI KAMI SUSUKO AT MANININDIGAN KAMi.” laban sa lahat nang nais na yumurak sa aming soberanya at kalayaan.”

***

Naiisip ko naman, sana ganito sana ang Pilipinas. Sana ganito sna ang mga numumino sa ating bayan. Matapang at may paninindigan.

Hindi bahag ang buntot sa Tsina o sundu-sunurang sa Amerika. Sabi nga ni Ho Chi Minh ng Byetnam:

WALANG PINAKAMAHALAGA SA MUNDO KUNDI ANG KALAYAAN AT KASARINLAN. “

JFAV: CONDEMN THE 15 TRAITOR SENATORS WHO SUPPORTED THE IMPOSITION OF PDUT’S MARTIAL LAW

For Immediate Release
Justice for Filipino American Veterans (JFAV)-USA
Los Angeles
May 30, 2017

JFAV: CONDEMN THE 15 TRAITOR SENATORS WHO SUPPORTED THE IMPOSITION OF PDUT’S MARTIAL LAW.

Los Angeles— Condemn the 15 modern MAKAPILIS!

The Justice For Filipino American Veterans (JFAV) based in the United States, vehemently condemned the 15 Filipino/a Senators who signed the petition to support PDUT’s martial law in Mindanao

Like the craven and traitorous MAKAPILI’s during World War II who supported the Japanese Invaders, 15 Senators of the PDUT Majority signed a petition to support the creeping martial law of PDUT.

True to the Filipino American Veterans who formed the anti-martial law coalition in the United States, to stand against Marcos martial law in 1972, we stand again to oppose the creeping martial in the Philippines.

As we honor our veteran leaders like Commodore Ramon Alcaraz, Col. Bonifacio Gillego, Faustino Baclig, Jose Salcedo and many others this Memorial Day, May 29, 2017 in the United States, we again stand and fight martial law in the Philippines . We will continue their brave tradition as we stand for freedom.

Condemn The Traitors

Remember their names. Most of them were beneficiaries of the largesse of the brutal 14 years of martial law. Some of them human rights torturers like Col.Gringo Honasan and Ping Lacson. Others are scions of the families who benefitted from the US-Marcos dictatorship.

They are the following: Koko Pimentel, Tito Sotto, Sonny Angara, Nancy Binay, Miguel Zubiri, JV Ejercito, Sherwin Gatchalian, Richard Gordon, Gringo Honasan, Panfilo Lacson, Loren Legarda, Manny Pacquiao, Ralph Recto, Joel Villanueva, and Cynthia Villar.

Convene The Congress

We call on the Philippine Congress especially the Senate to convene and formally examine the declaration of martial law as mandated by the 1987 Constitution. Don’t hide behind your flimsy petition to support PDUT.

Do your duty to the country and do not circumvent the law. If you really support PDUT, make it formal, declare martial law if that is what you want. But convene the Congress and follow the Constitution.

Mahiya naman kayo sa bayan. Ayaw ba ninyong maitala ang inyong katrayduran at pagiging garapal na mga tuta ng Rehimeng Duterte?
