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 Sto. Niño, Zamboanga City

The history of Barangay Sto. Niño gained momentum way back in the 19th century when the barrio was occupied by only few residents. This growing commercial center of Zamboanga Poblacion was only a kilometer distance. The place was still an undeveloped residential area. Public utilities such as electricity and water were not yet available. That time the calesa was the common public vehicle running the San Jose main road. Eventually the barrio was developed with coconut and some bushes and herbs around.

A certain family by the name of Alejandro Asuncion was said to have possessed a black statue of Sto. Niño. This was placed by the image in Cebu City, which was given by Magellan as a gift to King Humabon's wife for her yearly devotion to this image with traditional novena and simple celebration.

In 1911, Don Alejandro wanted the statue to be repaired in Manila through his son Leocadio who was then a student in Manila. Don Alejandro instructed his son to bring the image to a well-known sculptor in Quiapo.

The son boarded M/S Brutus bound for Manila. He wrapped the statue among his clothes inside the wooden trunk. During the voyage, a sudden storm violently occurred, which sank the vessel many miles away from the island of Panay. Leocadio managed to survive for awhile with the trunk, which contained the image, which was placed in cabin. However, his recovery was impossible. Two weeks later, the said trunk was found floating near the seashore of the municipality of Antique and a native found the trunk and brought it on the seashore because of curiosity.

They opened it and found out it was the statue of Sto. Niño still intact with the clothes. Some prayers and cedula of Leocadio Asuncion were recovered containing his address. The trunk and the statue were safely returned to the owner in Zamboanga City. There was rejoicing among the residents.

In 1927, a certain Pedro Agta from Cebu brought an image of Sto. Niño to the barangay, which at that time was already being resided by some people. The place prior being named as Sto. Niño, was known as "Cuadra" where horses and calesas were found. Most of the residents in the area were Visayans, who are devoted to the image of Sto. Niño and traditionally, they conduct regular novena prayer. Eventually a celebration in honor of Sto. Niño was done yearly until such time the Barangay was named as Barrio Sto. Niño. Laws were amended and the place is now known as Barangay Sto. Niño.

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.

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.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.

Around Sto. Niño, Zamboanga City

Refugees from the war of September 9, 2013 were displaced into the streets. R.T. Lim Blvd becomes home to hundreds of refugees. The city does not provide any toilet facilities to these refugees. So they all use the shoreline of cawa-cawa beach to go to the bathroom and at the same time do their bathing. The tragedy is this: The barangays of San Jose Cawa-Cawa and Sto. Niño did not file a petition to the city administration as to the expediting of providing these people better conditions.

And since these refugees are in the custody of the barangays (even though national crises makes the city responsible) the city administration is playing the waiting game. The money is available and zamboanga has ample locations.

But unless the barangays of Sto. Nino and San Jose Cawa exercise their authority of domain, this tragedy will drag on.

The tragedy is not just to the once tourist area and a favorite place for couples and lovers to watch the sunset but mainly to the inhumane way that these refugees are living.
