The rise of Rodrigo Duterte is probably the biggest blow to the CIA’s grand plan in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia, because, not only is the incumbent president is in an all-out war with US imperialism for patriotism’s sake, i.e. for those Muslim patriots waging the longest Muslim war in history against the Western invaders,
he’s taking this as a personal battle against those who killed hundreds of innocent civilians in multiple bombings in his hometown city of Davao by a CIA operative disguising as a treasure hunter, i.e. Michael Terrence Meiring, who was spirited out from a hospital arrest by FBI operatives without the then Mayor Duterte’s prior consent.

The tremendous transformation to optimism and moral strength taking place within the Philippines, under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte, is captured in the following brief report, reprinted from the EIR Daily Alert Service. The hysterical diatribe against Duterte coming from Obama and his ilk over Duterte’s War on Drugs is not surprising, given that Obama is pushing drug legalization across the country and around the world, contributing to the worst drug epidemic in American history and tearing every community in the country apart.
Hundreds of Chinese Filipino businessmen have been jockeying to be on the same chartered flight to China with the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte come October 18-21, 2016.

After receiving multiple blackeyes in just a week, Obama opted to avoid talking to Duterte and raise the issue of extrajudicial killings in the War on Illegal Drugs in the Philippines.

Duterte’s lengthy response only made matter worse diplomatically for Obama who just survived a blatant insult hurled at him at the G20 Summit in Hangzhou, China.
