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.

History of Batangas City, Batangas, Philippines

Spanish missionaries first set foot in Batangas City in 1572. The settlement was founded in 1581 and named "Batangan" because of the numerous big logs that abounded the Calumpang River.

Don Agustin Casilao was appointed as the first Gobernadorcillo. Since 1754, the city has been the capital and administrative center of the province.

Barangay's power and authority

This is the "Barangay Code of the Philippines".

The barangay has power and authority over its domain. The improvement of the barangay rests on the barangay officials. The barangay chairman, the barangay council and the local businessmen forge the prosperity of the barangay. Not the president of the Philippines, senate, nor congress, not the governor of the province, not the mayor nor council of the municipality or city. Poor barangays stay poor because of weak and/or ignorant(uninformed) barangay leaders.

When roads need to be built or any infrastructure within the barangay is needed, all the barangay officials have to do is make a resolution and demand for it from the city or municipality council. The resolution will force the city/municipal council or responsible government office to hear the legitimate demands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Practically anything that has to do with the barangay, the barangay officials have a say on it and most likely the authority over it. The majority of the barangay officials are not aware of their duties and power. They depend on the city council or mayor. The elected barangay officials are afraid of the mayor and city/municipality's "Sangguniang Panlungsod". They are in fear of being ousted or removed from office. The truth is, "Sangguniang Panlungsod" does not have the power to remove any elected barangay officials from office. Only the COURT OF LAW can do this (judicial branch of the government). Information is power. Be informed.

The control of traffic is not up to the city council or chief of police. It is controlled by the barangay. If the barangay needs traffic enforcers, the barangay can make a resolution to demand it from the city or municipality council. When the electric coop or the water district do not maintain their lines, the barangay can directly demand for the maintenance from the utility companies. No need to wait for city council.

The citizens also has the power to make demands to the barangay officials. In case the officials get blinded. Simply file an official complaint with the barangay secretary naming the Punong barangay as the respondent representing the barangay.

  • BUDGET: As far as the preparation for the budget expenditures, it starts at the barangay level, then moves on to cities, municipalities, provinces and regions. The barangays need to exercise their authority. They need to put their yearly budget together for their administration and future projects. The majority of the barangays leave this job to the municipality and city. This is so wrong. Then when the budget doesn't come or is lacking, they complain.
  • The budget for the barangays does go to the City or Municipality, but simply for holding and later distribution. The city or municipality DOES NOT approve the budget. It was already approved by congress. The city or municipality simply "distributes" the approved budget.
  • Imperial Manila does not exist anymore. Budgetary planning has been "DECENTRALIZED since 1991.".

Ignorance keeps the pinoys thinking that Manila rules. Be informed, be educated and make your barangay prosper.

Natural Resources of Batangas City, Batangas, 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.

PIA Press Release
2008/03/28

Thankful Batangueños vow "strong support" for PGMA
Batangas City (28 March 2008) -- The provincial government of Batangas has vowed its strong support for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as it thanked the "untiring" Chief Executive through a Provincial Board Resolution of Support for all the graces that the province has so far received from the Arroyo administration.

The President was informed about the provincial resolution strongly supporting her after she had alighted from a bus that took her on a windshield inspection tour Wednesday (March 26) of the newly-paved 20-kilometer portion of the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) that links the Tambo interchange in Lipa City with the Balagtas interchange in Batangas City.

Sponsored by Batangas Vice Gov. Antonio "Marc" Leviste II and co-sponsored by all 12 provincial board members, the resolution dated March 24 thanked the President "for extending numerous projects and programs to Batanguenos and the province of Batangas."

"Her Excellency Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has been constantly developing the foundation for a robust and more progressive Philippines (and) has effectively widened the various socio-economic programs to increase growth and cut poverty," stressed the Provincial Board's Resolution of Support that was approved by Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto.

Recalling that President Arroyo had unveiled in her 2006 State-of-the- Nation Address (SONA) "her programs to upgrade all ways of transportation such as roads, bridges, port services and railways, among others, which are aimed at establishing economic 'super regions' to goad the development of our nation," the Batangas leaders then provided a litany of what Batangas had so far obtained from the President's super regions vision:

"As a result thereof (super regions), the Western Roll-on, Roll-off (RORO) Nautical Highway in Batangas City that connects Southern Luzon to the Visayas and Mindanao is a big success;

"The Calatagan-Lubang Port has been completed; several bridges under the President's Bridges Programs have been constructed all over Batangas province;

"The modernization program of the International Port of Batangas was turned over and inspected by the President last January 26, 2008;

"The road-widening project of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the construction of its extension up to Sto. Tomas, Batangas is ongoing;

"The realization of the development of a 'cyber corridor' to attract investments for the call center and business process outsourcing (BPO) sectors has been achieved; and

"The continuation of the STAR from Lipa City to Batangas City is now open for public use."

The resolution further dubbed as "clear, achievable and within reach" the President's "vision and promise… for the so-called 'Metro Luzon Beltway' which includes the Province of Batangas and the rest of Region IV into a globally competitive urban economic and tourism hub through infrastructure developments."

"The Provincial Government and Provincial Board of Batangas (are) optimistic that the priority and objective of the President's economic plan is to continuously harness together the major economic provinces and regions such as Batangas and Southern Tagalog, respectively, and make it larger than the sum of its parts, giving our kababayans the much-needed opportunities for progress," added the resolution which concluded, thus:

"The President (is) worthy of the gratitude and support of our kababayans for her untiring and resolute efforts to improve the quality of life of our people through strengthened partnerships, strong leadership, and excellent economic policies.

"As duly-elected representatives, we renew our confidence in the Arroyo administration, and we encourage the Filipino people to unite for the achievement of a common vision, and uphold the rule of law in order for our government to move on and realize a peaceful, progressive and stable nation through genuine reconciliation."

The President was joined in her bus ride cum drive-through inspection by Batangas officials led by Governor Santos-Recto, Rep. Mark Llandro Mendoza, Rep. Eileen Ermita-Buhain, Transportation Secretary Leandro Mendoza, and former Sen. Ralph Recto, among others.
