Separation of Church and State

Federalism in the Philippines is simply a ploy to give the Bangsamoro an Islamic State. Bangsamoro is POISON. Religion must never rule supreme over any region, province, city, municipality or barangay. All religions must be treated equally.
The Philippine government must STOP FINANCING Islam.

Federalism a ploy to create a Bangsamoro State 2.JPG

To have an Islamic State in a Non-Islamic federal form of government invites CHAOS and or possibly later secession from the country. India, USA, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina are some of the countries with the federal form of government. Issues with Islam exist but so far not one of them has a Muslim state. Because they know that it will only lead to chaos. Yet the Philippines tempts this Bangsamoro State idea. Learn from the mistake of Russia. They did this, and is now miserably paying the price. Religion and Government must be kept separate. Doesn't the Philippine legislature understand this? Or possibly the legislature of the Philippines was "bought and paid for" by the Muslim advocates and the Political Dynasty advocates?

Soldiers of the Philippines, you are at war with the Islamic Terrorists in Mindanao. These terrorists are MOROS or MUSLIMS.


The government of the Philippines is financing these Moros/Muslims, and here you are being shot at and killed by these Moros who are financed by the Philippine government.
Federalism in the Philippines is pushed and supported by four types of People.
✅ The first one is by the Muslims (Moros) because they want an Islamic state of their own. Federalism guarantees them an Islamic State.
✅ The second is by the greedy (Kanya-Kanya) mentality who are also the proponents of political dynasties.
✅ The third are the ignorant, the blind followers or the minions of the proponents of this type of federalism in the Philippines.
✅ The fourth are those who are paid to say yes. They are just chasing MONEY. They will do anything for MONEY.

Location of Baguio City, Province of Benguet, Philippines

  • 16.4167° N, 120.6000° E - Baguio, Coordinates

One of the cleanest and greenest cities in the country, Baguio is made for sightseeing. And for strolls and boat rides and gentle trots around the park. And for golf. Kennon Road, completed in 1905, opened Baguio to tourism. The zigzagging path previews the scenic highlights of the city. Along the 32-kilometer highway are the Bridal Veil and Colorado waterfalls. Synonymous with Baguio is Burnham Park. Located in the heart of the city, the park’s features include a man-made lagoon ideal for boat rides, a skating rink, an athletic field and stadium, basketball and tennis courts, a biking zone, tree-and-flower lined promenades, and a plant market.

A popular golfing destination, the city takes pride in its Baguio Country Club and Camp John Hay. What used to be the rest-and-recreation base of American military personnel, the Camp is being transformed into a world-class resort and is also Baguio’s biggest pine tree conservation area. Its newly refurbished 18-hole golf course rivals that of the Country Club which has pretty garden-patched cottages surrounding its fairways. Ornate iron gates open to the Mansion House, the official summer residence of Philippine presidents. It offers tourists with great photo opportunities with its rectangular reflecting pool along a tree-lined walkway. It also houses a museum of presidential memorabilia. Near the Mansion House is Wright Park where neophyte riders can trot around an oval track guided by trainers who lead horses with a hand-held leash. At the Mines View Park, tourists can have a panoramic view of the old mines of Benguet. At the park entrance is a flea market for souvenir items.

Sitting on top of a hill in Upper Session Road is the twin-spire Baguio Cathedral, a city landmark. Another pilgrimage site is the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes which sits on top of Dominican Hill. Devotees prefer to climb the 252-step ascent than drive through a winding road to reach the shrine. Bell Church holds a religious service of mixed Buddhist, Taoist, Confucian and Christian dogmas but tourists come here to have their fortunes told. Located on an elevated pine-forested ground is the Philippine Military Academy, the country’s foremost military learning institution. Its Saturday morning Parade in Review by cadets in full regalia never fails to attract visitors. Also within campus is a Military Museum. A cultural haven established by noted Baguio artist BenCab, Tam-awan Village recreates a typical ethnic village in the Cordilleras with authentic tribal homes uprooted from their original locations and re-set on similar terrain. There is also an art gallery-cum-coffee shop.

History of Baguio City, Province of Benguet, Philippines

The city of Baquio was incorporated as a city in September 1, 1909.

"Towards the turn of the 20th century, the American city planner Daniel Burnham carved on a valley in the upland Cordillera region of northern Luzon a summer recreational center, the city of Baguio. With its nippy climate and pleasant mountain scenery, Baguio is a favored destination among artists, honeymooners and others looking for a cool retreat. It is also a faith healing haven and a university town." Information provided by The Department of Tourism. Government of The Philippines.

Natural Resources of Baguio City, Benguet, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Sec. Soliman calls for stronger gov’t ties with Cordillera LGUs, civil society

By Carlito C. Dar


BAGUIO CITY, May 12 (PIA) - - Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Dinky Soliman called for continuous and stronger partnership among the Social Welfare and Development Officers (SWDOs), civil society organizations and citizens groups in bringing in inclusive social and economic growth to all the people in Cordillera.

Soliman made this call on Friday during the program review on the supplementary feeding program cum Social Welfare and Development Forum at the Pines View Hotel here. She said that a continuous and stronger partnership between the national government and the local government units in delivering basic social welfare and development services and programs to the people of Cordillera will help bring in inclusive growth.

She also gave recognition to the important role SWDOs play in ensuring that the national government’s goal of bringing in inclusive growth to the country under President Aquino’s ‘Tuwid na Daan’ governance, will come to reality.

During the event, Soliman also spearheaded the awarding of special awards, which include certificate and recognition and cash incentives to the province of Kalinga who submitted the most comprehensive social protection development report and also for having the highest rate of report submission. The municipality of Balbalan, Kalinga is likewise recognized for submitting a well packaged narrative and statistical report.

Soliman, along with DSWD-CAR Regional Director Leonardo Reynoso also signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Kalinga Governor Jocel Baac for the expansion of the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program to Tabuk City and the municipality of Rizal, Kalinga.

In the afternoon, Soliman and Reynoso, also signed a MOA with officials and representatives of various civil society organizations and citizens groups in the Baguio-Benguet area, in line with DSWD’s convergence strategy.

In her message, Soliman stressed the importance of such partnership, which through the government programs as well as those of their private partners, the attainment of bringing in inclusive social and economic growth to the country is possible. She emphasized that such partnership will also encourage the government to strive harder in giving honest, sincere and efficient service to the country.

Soliman also met with the DSWD-CAR family for a convergence meeting and consultation dialogue to oversee a better implementation of DSWD programs and services in the region.

Later in the afternoon, Soliman travelled to Mt. Data Hotel in Bauko, Mt. Province to meet with CCT Family beneficiaries, who are attending a Family Development Session. She is also set to go around the province today to visit projects and for community interactions. (JDP/CCD-PIA CAR)
