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 Pangasinan, Philippines

article from:www.nscb.gov.ph

Created in 1850 by Governor General Ronquillo de Penalosa, Pangasinan was the earliest political and administrative unit in the Philippines. It was officially conquered and colonized by D. Martin de Goiti in 1571. At that time, its territorial jurisdiction included the present province of Zambales and parts of La Union and Tarlac. Lingayen was designated and remained up to the present the provincial capital.

By middle of the 19th century, the northern towns of Agoo to Bacnotan were separated from Pangasinan and became parts of the province of La Union.

In 1975, its territorial boundaries were further diminished when Panique and other municipalities south of it were affixed to Tarlac.

At present, the province is bounded in the North by Lingayen Gulf, La Union and Benguet, in the Northeast by Nueva Vizcaya, in the East by Nueva Ecija, Tarlac in the South and Zambales and the China Sea in the West. It is approximately 170 kilometers North of Manila and 59 kilometers Southwest of Baguio City.

Below is a history article from the LGU of Pangasinan:

Pangasinan was among the earliest political and administrative units in the Philippines. It was officially conquered and colonized by D. Martin de Goiti in 1571. On April 5, 1572, Pangasinan was made an encomienda by the Spanish royal crown to receive instruction on the Catholic Faith, which means that Pangasinan was organized under one leadership and has identity before the Spanish royal court.

Eight years later, in 1580, Pangasinan was organized into a political unit under an alkalde mayor who at that time has authority as head of the province or provincial government with judicial function indicating that Pangasinan has become a province. To commemorate the day when Pangasinan became an encomienda and the year it became a province, Pangasinan celebrates April 5, 1580 as the official founding day of the Province of Pangasinan. At that time, its territorial jurisdiction included the Province of Zambales and parts of La Union and Tarlac. By the middle of the 19th century however, the northern towns of Agoo to Bacnotan were separated from the province and became parts of La Union. The provincial territory was further diminished in 1875 with the annexation of Paniqui and other towns south of it to Tarlac.

Pangasinan, derived its name from the word "panag asinan", which means "where salt is made", owing to the rich and fine salt beds which were the prior source of livelihood of the province's coastal towns.

Natural Resources of Pangasinan, 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.

  • The Capitol Building - designed by eminent American architect Ralph Harrington Doane, the Pangasinan Provincial Capitol has seen much of the province's history unfold. The building was constructed from 1917-1918 during the term of Pangasinan's 7th Governor, Daniel Maramba (1916-1922). Its inaugural in February 1919 featured a Pangasinan exposition which focused the attention of the entire nation on the province, its agricultural and industrial products, its achievements and potentials. During this time, it was considered to be the most beautiful provincial building in the country, admired and copied by other provinces. Under the administration of Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. (2007-present), the Capitol Building was further refurbished while all other provincial government buildings in the Capitol Complex underwent general facelift, renovation and restoration works. . The Capitol Building now houses the Offices of the Governor, the Vice-Governor and the Provincial Board Members, and several provincial government departments. These intensive rehabilitation projects, with the Capitol Building reclaiming its reputation to be the most beautiful Capitol in the country today, have transformed the Capitol Complex as an alternative tourist destination and the pride of Pangasinenses.
  • The Sison Auditorium - the edifice was constructed in 1926-1927 during the term of Teofilo Sison, the 8th Governor of Pangasinan who also served as Senator of the Republic of the Philippines from 1928-1932 and was thereafter appointed as Secretary of Interior and Labor, and as Secretary of Justice and National Defense, earning him a distinction as the first Pangasinense to become a cabinet member. The Sison Auditorium was originally built as part of the Pangasinan Academic High School, the first secondary school in the province (now better known as Pangasinan National High School). Popularly known as “Assembly Hall”, or the “Grand Provincial Auditorium”, or simply the “Aditorium”, it became the place of major social functions in the province. It also served at one time or another as a sports venue, as the Provincial Library, and as Office of the Vice-Governor and the Provincial Board. The Auditorium underwent general facelift, renovation and restoration works in 2008-2010 under the administration of Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr., with the vision to make it the Cultural Center of Pangasinan, to showcase the Pangasinense culture and artistry and the province’s rich culture of indigenous songs, dances and other artistic expressions.
  • The Colegio del Santissimo Rosario - erected along the Agno River in Lingayen in 1890 by the Dominicansas an exclusive school for girls, the Colegio del Santissimo Rosario had a dormitory for the ninas, a clausura for the madres and a chapel. It served as barracks of American soldiers for two (2) years during the Filipino-American war and was damaged from the bombings that came with the Lingayen Gulf Landings during World War II. In 1947, the Columban sisters opened the St. Columban's Academy at the Colegio, following Bishop Mariano Madriaga's offer to use it as school for children in Lingayen. The school, now named St. Columban's College, moved to its present location beside the Catholic church in 1954. When the Dominican sisters constructed another school in San Manuel town, they retrieved materials from the Colegio and used them for their new school building, thus leaving its ruins.
  • The Casa Real - constructed in the 1840s, the Casa Real was a royal house where the Alcalde Mayor resided and held office as the Governor and the Judge of the Court of First Instance. It became the station of the Spanish soldiers and their native recruits who helped fought the Katipuneros during the revolutionary war against the Spanish rule. At the end of that century when the Americans colonized the province, it was named Capitol and served as the Office of the Governor. After the Taft Commission organized Pangasinan as a civil province on February 16, 1901, Judge William Howard Taft and his commissioners went to Lingayen and were given a grand reception in Casa Real. In World War II, the building was used by the Japanese as office during their invasion of the country and was partly damaged by the American naval bombardment in 1945. This 1,728 sqm. - public edifice served at one time or the other as the office and residence of the Alcalde Mayor and the Gobernador Civil, the courts of the judiciary, public elementary school and government offices. It was declared a National Historical Landmark by the National Historical Institute in 2002.

In the Philippines a fiesta is usually celebrated in barrios or barangays. It is the official holiday of the LGU, the barangay. Filipinos love fiestas. It is a time for joy and celebration.

ALAMINOS CITY, Pangasinan -- The Regional Science and Technology (S&T) Caravan 2018, which will offer free technology training courses for livelihood and showcase different technologies, will be held in this city on Sept. 18 to 21.

Director Felicidad Gan of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) office in Pangasinan, in an interview on Monday, said the trainings and forums will focus on improving the bamboo industry, boost peanut production, increase agriculture and aquaculture productivity, emergency food reserve, and salt iodization technology, among others.

“The trainings are for free, with participants coming from the host city and other towns from the first district of Pangasinan,” Gan said.

She said the food technology developed by the DOST’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute will also be presented in the caravan where visitors can also buy these products.

“The local government units of the 10 municipalities and cities of the Pangasinan’s first district can also adopt the waste management technology developed by Adamson University funded by DOST, which they could use to tackle their problems on waste disposal, while there is also the technology to manage hotels and restaurants along the seashore,” Gan noted.

Other services which will be offered during the caravan are Real Life Experience in a Box (RxBox) medical assessment, scholarship campaign, free calibration of weighing scales, planetarium and interactive science exhibits, she said.

“Students will also enjoy the exhibits at the Don Leopoldo Sison Sports Complex since these are interactive,” she added.

Gan said 10 schools from the 1st district of Pangasinan will receive a Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosks (STARBOOKS) digital library on Sept. 21.

“Students can do their research through the STARBOOKS, where they could also access the technologies DOST is developing, among others, helpful materials and information,” she said.

Different science and technology (S&T) contest will also be joined in by students from the entire Region 1 (Ilocos).

The four-day caravan aims to raise awareness and appreciation of the DOST’s programs and projects in the countryside and remote areas; create potential investment opportunities on matured technologies towards establishment of technology; come up with agreement and undertakings that will result in S&T project implementation; determine and provide possible technical assistance needed by the city; and motivate the youth to appreciate science and technology in a fun and interactive way, she added.
