|Speech of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his attendance to the Kaamulan Festival|
|Capitol Grounds, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon|
|25 March 2017|
|Nagbutang sila ug istraktura tungod kontra Amerika. Giingnan nako ang Amerika, look. If you do not want the Chinese, fine. Ayaw kog apila, don’t include me because China is my neighbor. I just want to make friends and trade so that my people will be happy. And we can have money and we can improve the country of the Republic of the Philippines. Mao ra na.
(They put up infrastructure as a move against America. I told America, “Look. If you do not want the Chinese, fine. But don’t leave me alone. Don’t include me because China is my neighbor. I just want to make friends and trade so that my people will be happy. And we can have money and we can improve the country of the Republic of the Philippines. That’s it.)
Unya sobra sobra na ilang tabang nahibaw mo karon nibalik na almost 100 percent sa atong banana gina import na. Pineapple nag increase na ta by 65 percent. Gina palit na nila tanan. Karon pag kogi nalang mo. Mutabang man sila. Muhatag mag tractor ni si Pinol. Wa man pod diri. Basig kabaw may gidala.
(And they have helped us so much already. Did you know that almost 100 percent of our bananas are now being imported? Pineapple imports have also increased by 65 percent. They are buying everything. Right now, work hard. They will help. Pinol will give you a tractor, but he’s not here right now. He might bring a carabao instead.)
(They will give all the assistance for us to develop, so that we can develop the land. Make it useful. They can buy food from us for them to eat because they are getting populated. While we can earn from them and we can also give our support. So that’s it. That’s the reason why they are here. They were even the first to give support for the Rehab Center.)
Sa mga gulungog nga sigeg droga, kamo prangkahan ta mo. Daghan na mang nangamatay. Ug gusto mo muapil, muuna mo, okay lang sa ako. Kay mo palit tag dugang sementeryo. Di man ko gusto nga punggan ta pud mo. Ug gusto gyud mo mu la-la anang putang inang droga na.
(For the crazies who keep on using drugs, I’ll be frank with you. Many have already died. If you want to join and die first, that’s fine by me because we’ll buy more cemeteries. I don’t want to stop you from doing drugs if you really want to take drugs)
Mamatay gyud mo diha eh. Mama- Buhii na. Mamatay gyud mo. Basta naa kay droga ibaligya gyud nimo na. Inig baligya nimo, imong ngalan musingaw gyud. Muana na man ang gobyerno ug asa na gikan. So usahay abi nimo ang imong gi baligyaan user kay magpabuang-buang man pud. Kahibaw ka aning mga pulis utro pud ning mga aktor. [Laughter, applause]
(You will really die there. Let it go. You will really die. If you have drugs, you will certainly sell it. When you sell it, your name will circulate. The government will just ask where the drugs came from. So sometimes you thought you were selling for users who seem crazy… you know how good actors policemen can be. [Laughter])
Eh wa ka kahibaw eh. Basig ibaligya pa nimog lain. Sundon, diin man nimo ni ibaligya. Karon ang imong gi baligyaan- Ikarga taka sa helicopter didto sa taas sa bukid. Gamay nalang kaayong helicopter makita nimo. Pasakyon taka didto unya ingnon taka, diin man nimo palita imong droga? Mutug-an ka sa tinuod, buhian tika.
[You don’t know that. You don’t know that if you happened to sell it to other people, the drugs can be traced back to who sold it. Now the person you sold it to—I will carry you in my helicopter and we’ll go up high in the mountains. There are very few helicopters that you can see now. I’ll let you ride in mine and then I’ll ask you,”Where did you buy your drugs?” If you tell me the truth, I’ll let you out.]
Dili ka mutug-an sa ako, imo kong binuangan, ingnon nako ang sundalo–kay higtan ko man daan imong tiil ug kamot–ingnon nako ang sundalo, sikari para– Pero kung mutug-an ka sa tinuod kung gipalit nimo diha sa sitio, unsay pangalan sa nag distribute, tangtangon nako ang pisi sa imong kamot ug tiil pero ihagbong lang taka gihapon. [Laughter]
(And if you refuse to tell me, if you joke around with me, I will tell the soldier—because I will have your hands and feet tied—I will tell the soldier to kick you so that—. But if you tell me the truth about where you bought the drugs from, I will remove the rope from your hands and feet but I will still throw you out. [Laughter])
Wa ko nangkinahanglan ug mga pusher ug user. Kay nahibaw mo kanang user, pusher jud na. Ang tig sustener sa imong bisyo ang tao nga imong gi patakod sa droga. Unya niabot na ta ug 4 million. Mao to ‘tong Mayor pako sa Davao, naay problema. Nahibaw ko there was a problem in Davao City. But I said tong mayor ko, and I’ve been Mayor for the last 23 years, giingnan nako sila mga criminal, “Do not destroy my city. Do not plant the city with shabu because you will destroy the country. Ayaw, ayaw pag distribute ug shabu diri sakong syudad kay patyun tajud ka. Wa ko mag binuang, way—“
(I have no need for pushers and users. You know, users are really pushers. What sustains their vice are the people whom they infected with and sold drugs to. That is why the numbers climbed to 4 million. That is also why, when I was still Mayor at Davao, there was a problem. I knew that there was a problem in Davao City. But what I said when I was Mayor was—and I’ve been Mayor for the last 23 years—I told the criminals, “Do not destroy my city. Do not plant the city with shabu because you will destroy the country. Don’t, just don’t distribute shabu in my city because I will really kill you. I am not joking.)
Karon president ko, naingon ko na ayaw ug dauta ang akong nasod. Niabot na ug milyones ang natakdan. Now we are producing a nation of slaves. Wala na na. ang kwarenta porsento ana nga sige la-la mukuyos ang utok. Inig ka kuyos sa utok, buang na na. di nana ma rehabilitate. Dili na na mudako. Basin imo pang huypon diri sa dunggan.
(Now that I’m president, I told them they should never destroy my nation. There are already millions of addicts. Now, we are producing a nation of slaves. The 40 percent who keeps on taking drugs now have their brains shrunk. And when the brain shrinks, the person is already insane. They cannot be rehabilitated. Their brains won’t grow back even if you blow air through their ears.)
So unsaon ko naman karon kanang 4 million? Mga katunga ana buang na. Inig kabuang ana, mangawat, akyat bahay, mang hold-up, human mupatay pa. Ang problema diha, mao ni. Sa iyang pag patay sa tao, pag hold-up, okay pa na siya. Wa pa kaayo mabuang. Butang ta na karong madakpan siya. One year after, unya naay mutudlo, mao na ang tawhanang ga kuyog sa bata. Didto sa kalubihan, nakit-an gi rape, patay.
(So what will I do with the 4 million? About half of that are crazy. When they lose their sanity, they steal, climb houses, perpetuate hold-ups. The problem with that is this. When he kills a person, steal from a person, he is still okay. He has not yet fully lost his sanity. Let’s put it this way. If he gets arrested now, one year after, someone will point to this guy that he was seen taking a young girl to the woods where the same girl was raped and found dead later)
Karon pag abot sa station, dili na gani maka sulti ug kinsay iyang pangalan. Ingon ang pulis, “Sino ang pangalan mo?” Katong among plantation wala to. Na mutipak na. Karon pag abot ana sa korte, muingon ang abogado, “Your honor, pwede ba tan-awon una nato usa ta mag bista? Before the trial, can we ask for a determination kung kaning tawhana pwede ba ning ibista? Can we try in court? Niay doctor gasulti. Ang tinubagan ani, “Wa na sa lugar.”
(And when they arrive at the station, they won’t even be able to utter their name. The police will ask, “What’s your name?” And the drug addict will answer with, “Our plantation is no longer operating.” And at the court, the lawyer will say, “Your honor, can we have the defendant examined before we have the trial? Can we ask for a determination if this person is sane enough to try in court?” A doctor will say, “He is out of place in the court.”
Tawgon ang doctor. Muingon ang judge, “Doctor, unsa maning yawa ni? Is he capable of facing charges in court? Makasabot pa ba ni unsay right and wrong?” Ug muingon karon ang doctor kay mao man gyud nay masunod. Expert testimony man na. Muingon siya, “Dili na pwede, Judge, kay buang na.”
(The doctor will be summoned. The judge will ask, “Doctor, how is this fool here? Is he capable of facing charges in court? Will he be able to understand what is right and wrong?” And whatever the doctor says will be followed because that’s expert testimony. The doctor will say, “It’s no longer possible, Judge, because he is already insane.”)
Muingon ang judge, “Pwede ba siya makahibaw, makasabot ug tama ug mali?” Muingon pud ang doctor, “Dili na. Basag na eh. May liki na.” So kinsa may manubag ani ron? Kung buang siya niadto ug buang siya karon, mas grabe.
(The judge will say, “ Will he be able to distinguish what is right from wrong?” And the doctor will respond with, “No, he can’t because he is already insane. There is already a crack.” And so who will take responsibility for that now? If he was already crazy and then, then he is definitely crazier now.)
Now, who will answer katong abi nimo dakog patay, dyes mil lang ilang giingon. Wa ko kasabaot ana uy. Masking yawa na imong pakutkuton sa sementeryo. Mag ihap tag usap. Muingon ka sa Davao, sa 23 years nako, mga 700-800 patay na engkwentro sa pulis. Di ko musugo na patayon ang tao naka dupa, naka luhod. Kalokohan iyan. Mas musugot pa kog ma priso ning yawa ni. Kay sa prisohan, wa gyud ko muexpand. Ang prisohan niadto good for 10, akong ginasudlan ug singkwenta, isa ka gatos.
(Now, who will answer to those whom you thought were all killed? They only said 10,000. I don’t understand that at all. Even if you have the cemetery dug up by the fools, even if we count again. I said in Davao, in my 23 years there, around 700-800 died during police encounter. I do not order the killing of a person who is down on his knees. That’s crazy. I would rather have this person imprisoned because with prisons, that’s where I did not expand. The prison cells back then that was meant for 10, I had 50-100 put inside.)
Mao nang matug sila, di man pud sila matumba kay hugot na man kaayo. Pero mag tindog nalang. Para nako gwapo na, mag antos ka diha. Putang ina ka. Dako kaayo kag sala sa Pilipino. Karon ug akong patyon ang drug lord. Anaon gyud nako. Ako, ako, dili pulis, ako ba. Daghan kog gi ana na drug lord. Walay pulis. Ako mismo maoy mu ihaw. Pero wa pa man ko nadakpi pa hinuon. [Laughter]
(That is why when they sleep, they don’t fall because it’s too tight already. So they’ll just stand instead. But for me, that’s nice because you’ll suffer there, you son of a *****. You’ve committed a grave sin against Filipinos. Now I will really kill drug lords. Me and not the police. I’ve done the same for other drug lords. I, myself, will roast you. But so far, I haven’t been caught yet [Laughter])
Ug naay drug lord naga luto pero walay runner, edi way silbi nang– Naa gyud nay runner, naay kwarta. Naay bisyo. Mura nag unggoy nga nag kalot sa imong likod kada igo nimo ana. Pag gikinahanglan na nimo ang droga, murag naay unggoy nga gina paak ka, gina kambras ka sa imong likod.
(If there is a drug lord who cooks the drugs but has no runner, then it’s useless. There’s always a runner, there’s always money. There are vices. It’s like a monkey is clinging onto your back every time you do drugs. Whenever you feel the need for drugs, it’s like a monkey is biting you and scratching your back.)
A monkey in the back. Characterized by Americans as monkey riding on your back. Karon, kung di pud nimo patyon ni, dili nimo undangon, mangita gyud ni ug supply. So naa gyud matintal muluto. Muingon silag, “Duterte gipatay ang tanang pobre.” Wa man pud ko kadungog na naay anak ni Lucio Tan o Go Kong Wei nga nagapamaligya diha.
(A monkey in the back. Characterized by Americans as monkey riding on your back. Now if you don’t kill this, if you don’t stop it, it will always look for a supply. So there will always be someone who’d be tempted to cook drugs. They’ll say, “Duterte killed all the poor.” But I have never heard about the son of Lucio Tan or Go Kong Wei selling drugs.)
Puro gyud na pobre kay pobre maoy ignorante, maoy maigo. Abi ninyo na pagsulod ninyo ana, mulutaw mo. Unya gwapo kaayong kinabuhi. Murag nakakita mog langit. Pero tunga sa oras ana, pagkahuman ana bungog ka na pud. Mangita ka na pud. So muingon ka they are only killing and they are killing poor people.
(They’re all poor because it’s the poor who are ignorant and so they are the ones who will get hit. You think when you first try it, you’re floating. Your life seems so good, it’s as if you can see heaven itself. But after half an hour, you slump back. So you’ll look for more. So now you say they are only killing and they are killing poor people.)
Well, I am sorry. I have to clean up and until such time mapatay ang drug lords. Mawala ni sila sa dalan pagka gabii mag lakaw-lakaw mahurot mo. Im sorry. Muingon mo pobre mo? That’s not an answer. May problema ako. 4 million addicts. Do you want another four million sa akong panahon?
(Well, I am sorry. I have to clean up and until such time all drug lords are dead. They will no longer be walking on the streets at night. Im sorry. You say you’re poor? That’s not an answer. I have a problem. 4 milion addicts. Do you want another four million during my term?)
Kinsa may mutubag atong mga bata na gina rape, gina patay? Kinsa man tong mang hold-up diha sa jeep, pamusilon ang mga pasahero? Kinsay manubag ana? Who will answer for the lives, innocent lives na dili– Nia pa ha. Pagtu-ay pa sa Middle east, Thailand and the rest of ASEAN countries. Naay daghan Pilipino. Bana ug asawa nag trabaho sa gawas. Nagpakabuktot ug trabaho para makakuha ug kwarta. Maka padala didto [inaudible] ang ilang anak unta maka skwela, maka edukar sa ilang kahago.
(Who will answer for the young girls who are being raped and killed? Who were those who perpetuated hod-ups inside jeepneys, shooting the passengers? Who will answer for that? Who will answer for the lives, innocent lives who are not—There in Middle East, Thailand and the rest of ASEAN countries, there are many Filipinos whose husbands and wives work there, outside the country. They bury themselves in their work just to earn money and send their children to school.)
In the Middle East, I am not specifying any country. Ngadto, ngano man? Uniporme na mag uli. Tanawa ang report. Makatulog lang sila 4 or 3 hours every day. Ang pagkaon lamaw pa. Ngano man? Kay ug wa ka ga trabaho ngadto ug ang iyang silingan o anak naay balay, limpyohan pa nimo na. Unya human, kwaon pa ngadto sa mga ig-agaw. Ang pobreng Pilipina usahay pabuntisan pa, i-rape pa. Muabot nalang diri sa Pilipinas, manganak sa kasilyas sa eroplano. And they swallow the indignity. Unya ilang antoson ang pagkawala [inaudible].
(In the Middle East, I am not specifying any country. Why? They look uniform when they get home. Look at the report. They get to sleep 4 or 3 hours every day. They eat leftovers. Why? Because if they don’t go there to work, they’ll work here cleaning houses for neighbors and cousins alike. The poor Filipinas sometimes get raped or get pregnant. And they’ll get to the Philippines, give birth in the restroom of an airplane, swallow the indignity. They’ll suffer the losses [inaudible])
Mura silag hayop para lang makapadala ug kwarta adto sa ilang mga anak nila diri para maka skwela. Makaulahaw pag-abot, ang iyang anak masagna. Ang anak niyang babae na rape, gi patay. Way nahitabo sa iyang singot. Way nahitabo sa iyang pagkatao unya ang mga durugista ang drug lords maoy mudato sa ka pobrehon sa Pilipino, iyang sakripisyo. Maka kwarta pa ning mga putang inang drug lord. Kaya letche kayo. I will kill you. Basta dili mo muundang. Mentras akoy presidente, yayarain ko talaga kayo. Musugot mog sa dili. Di na bale ko ma preso. I am ready to face the consequences and if I have to rot in hell, I will do it.
(They work like animals just to send money to send their children to school. But when they get home, they find that their daughter was raped or killed. Nothing was borne out from their sweat. But the drug lords are the ones who gain from the poverty of the Filipinos. They earn money from that. Curse you. I will really kill you. For as long as you don’t stop, as long as I am president, I will really defeat you, whether you permit it or not. I don’t care if I get jailed. I am ready to face the consequences. And if I have to rot in hell, I will do it.)
Maayo nang mag sinabtanay ta. Not all Filipinos are given the chance to be president. I am the 16th president. If you… It could be my honor. Kalipay nalang nako if I am killed in the altar of drugs in the Philippines.
(Let’s reach an understanding here. Not all Filipinos are givent he chance to be president. I am the 16th president. If you—It could be my honor. It is my happiness to be killed in the altar of drugs in the Philippines.)
Honor kaayo nako mamatay para sa atong nasod. Panagsa ra tagaan ka ug posisyong presidente. Pwede na ko mamatay diri. Pahawaon ko nila, okay lang. Tutal, ako’y nidagan pila ra’y nisuportar nako. Diring dapita, ang mga Zubiri ra. Ang tiguwang na Zubiri ang mao’y nag ingon ug dagan. Kay puro man sila bata. Unya ang tiguwang… ang governor. Diyan tayo mag…
(It is my honor to die for our nation. The opportunity to become president comes rarely. I am ready to die here. If they oust me, that’s okay. Anyway, when I ran [for president] very few supported me. In this side, only the Zubiris did. The older Zubiri said to run because they are mostly young ones and the old one… the governor. That’s where we… )
Ingon sila na ang military ipahawa ako, edi pahawai! Tutal ako way kwarta. Nidagan ko wa gani koy barangay captain usa. Unsa may nag padaog nako? 15 million plus six and six million. Mao nay akong mayorya. Dako kaayo. Wa koy kwarta, wa koy partido. Kanang partido, local lang na, kanang Cagayan de Oro. Mga Pimentel. Ang tiguwang ug ang si Koko. Ngano nakakuha man ko? Si ramos pag dagan 800 000 ra iya. Where did I get the six million? Sa mensahe.
(They said that the military will oust me. Let them! I don’t have money anyway. I ran [for president] without even one barangay captain. So what made me win then? 15 million plus six and six million. That’s my majority. It’s very big. I don’t have any money, I don’t have a partylist. The partylist is just local, it’s here in Cagayan de Oro. The Pimentels. The onld one and Koko. So why did I get those votes? When Ramos ran he only had 800, 000. Where did I get the six million? The message.)
Unsa may akong mensahe? Walay korapsyon. Masiguro ninyo wala juy korapsyon. Putang ina pamatyon tamo. Droga. Kirminalidad. Ug ang ekonomiya. I will do everything to make it big, to blossom into something… Mao nay akong ikabilin. Muingon ko kutob ra ko tulo ka tuig. Okay. Mao na’y akong— Ingon sa Ginoo, Duterte, himoon taka ug presidente.
(What’s my message? No corruption. You can be assured that there will be no corruption. Son of a ****. I’ll kill you all. Drugs, criminality,a nd the economy. I will do everything to make it big, to blossom into something. That’s my legacy. I’ll say I will only last for 3 years. Okay. That’s my—God said, “Duterte, I will make you a president.”
Buhata ni tanan pero ma yari jud ka. Good. I accept it, God. Walay problema. Muingon ang ginoo sunod tuig wala na ka sa pwesto. Good. Mao na akong kapalaran, diha rako kutob, ako nang dawaton. Pero mentras ako’y president, corruption will stop. Daghan nakog gipahawa ug hilom. 92, kadaghanan LTO, LTFRB, ug customs ug BIR. Akong gihunghungan kay ang uban raba naa nay mga anak na doctor. Naa na diha ga practice na sa Cardinal Santos, diha sa St. Lukes, PGH (?)
[“Do all these or you’ll be in trouble.” Good. I accept it, God. No problem. If God says that I will no longer be in position next year, good. If that’s my fate, if that’s how long I ought to be, I will accept that. But as long as I’m president, corruption will stop. I’ve let many people go silently. 92 of them. Most cam efrom LTO, LTFRB, customs, and BIR. I only whispered to them because some have children who are already practicing doctors at Cardinal Santos, St. Lukes, PGH.]
Ana ko nga, “go silently.” Di ko gusto mauwawan ka. Ok na to na naka kwarta mo. Kay kanang taga Customs, BIR, kuan ra na ilang sweldo, tip lang na. Ang ilang pangwarta kanang—Well, it has to stop.
(I said, “Go silently.” I won’t want to embarrass you. It was enough that you earned money. People from Customs, BIR, their salaries are somewhat just like a tip. Their main source of income is—Well, it has to stop.)
Karon ang inyong mga ig-agaw, masking kamo inig byahe ninyo. When you go abroad, walay customs o police na mu abre sa inyong bag. Hantod dili ko musulti na abrehan, walay taga gobyerno na maka abre sa inyong bag sa airport. Dili ko musugot ana. Pag hilabtan sa pulis, ingna nag ingon si Duterte ayaw hilabti. Ayaw hilabti kay ingon siya patiran ta daw ka. Customs, tanang muabot, walay abre-abre, walay kwaon.
(When you travel, go abroad, no customs or police officer will open your bag. Until I say the word for them to open bags, no one from the government will open your bag at the airport. I won’t permit that. If a policeman attempts to open your bag, tell him that Duterte said he shouldn’t. Don’t touch the bag because Duterte told me that if you do, I should hit you. Customs, for everything that arrives, nothing will be opened, nothing will be taken.)
If there is anything that is deleterious, or will place in jeopardy mga tao diha with a bomb or…well. Una na sa eroplano pag saka diha sa conveyor. Well, muagi na ug X-ray, so makita na didto kung unsa ang kontrabanda.
(If there is anything that is deleterious or will place in jeopardy any one there with a bomb or… well. First thing when you get inside an airplane in the conveyor. That will go through an X-Ray. The contrabands will definitely be seen.)
So pag abre anang mag linya diha sa gawas, abrihan ang bag. Karon wala na na. Wala na sa gobyerno. Ug naay BIR mangayo ninyo, kani oh taka-taka ug suwat. Ingna mubayad ko sa tinuod. Ug di nimo dawaton akong kwarta, akong buwis ipadaan nako kay Duterte.
(So when you queue outside, the bags will be opened. But not anymore. No one from the government. And if there’s someone from BIR who asks money from you, tell him, “I’ll pay the real fee. If you don’t accept my money, my tax, I’ll pay it through Duterte.”)
Pero ingnon nako nga nangayo ka. Unya naa may 888 sa inyong direkta man na. ibutang ngadto ang pangalan sa opisyal, unsang petsaha, diin, unsang transaction. Ibutang diha iyahang ngalan. Ug gusto ka na imong ngalan. Ug dili, ayaw ibutang. Ingna gi pangayuan ka ani, gina korap ka. Kay ako ra’y– mabasa ko na, ako na’y bahala.
(“But I will tell him that you asked money from me.” And there’s 8888 in the directory. Put there the name of the official, the date, where, the transaction. Write his name. You can include yours if you want but if you don’t, then don’t put it there. Report that this person tried to extort money from you. And if I read that, leave him to me.)
Patawgon taka sa Malacanang. Maniudto ta didto. Imbitahon ko na kung kinsa na sa taga gobyerno. Register of deeds, walay titulo, walay papel, walay—Putang ina. Daghag istorya. Pabalik-balikon ka. Sa departamento sa national. Sa NEDA niadto, maabot ug 3, 4, 5 years. Karon giingnan nako, “Tanan Cabinete, Defense, Foreign affairs, inyong passports must be acted upon one month. Tapos mugawas na. One month ra akong ihatag sa inyo. Ang passport ten days. Kanang mga dakong decision. Pero kaning mga regional directos. Well, I am warning everybody in government pati saaking opisina.
(I’ll invite you to Malcanang. Let’s have lunch there. I’ll invite also whoever that person from the government is. Register of deeds, no title, no papers, no—son of a *****. Too many explanations, will just make you go in circles. In the national departments… in NEDA back then, it will take 3, 4, 5 years. Now I told them, “All cabinets, Defense, Foreign Affairs, your passports must be acted upon one month and then it will come out. I’m only giving you one month. Ten days for the passport. The big decisions, but for the regional directors… Well, I am warning everybody in government and even in my own office.)
Naa koy kauban pagkamayor nako 1988. Gidala nako sila didto kay team gud mi. Pag abot ngadto naka simhot dayon ko. Giingnan nako sila the first week makasimhot lang ko. Putlon nato atong pagka amigo. Dili ni ako. This is government war, not mine. Kwarta ni sa tao. Binayran ta sa tao. Magtinarong ta. So mao ni ang akong gina impose. Kaning mga director. Halos tagdugay kaayo ang mga papel. Bureau of Land, DENR. One month.
(I had companions when I was mayor in 1988. I brought them there because we are a team. But when we got there, I smelled something right away. I told them in the first week that when I sniff something, I’ll cut our friendship. This isn’t my war. This is government war, not mine. This is people’s money. The people paid us. Let’s do our jobs well. So this is what I am imposing. These directors. It takes a long time for the papers. Bureau of Land, DENR. One month.)
Pag abot sa regional, 15 days. Kinahanglan mugawas na nang papel. Post dayon sa 8888 kay ipatawag ko nang director sa manila. Mamili ka sagpaon taka o sipaon taka. Basta pangwarta. Nagsakit sa malaria nag kurog kurog. Mas madali.
(Translation: It would get 15 days when it reaches the regional. According to them, document needs to be released. Better post it at 8888 because I will call the director in Manila. You may choose, either I’ll slap or kick you if you’re involved in corruption. Nagkakasakit na sa malaria, shaking. It’s easier.)
But I will not tolerate corruption. One of the five or six corruption droga criminality economy. I remember distinctly. I was asked kami tanan (lahat) [in the] third round. If you get to be president would you allow Marcos sa Libingan ng bayani? I allowed. Ngano man? (Why?) Gisaad ko na sa eleksyon. (I was elected during the election.) The law itself states it. Ang ilubong ra ngadto president o sundalo. (You may allow to bury a president or a soldier.) Si Marcos [ay] sundalo. Maayo ba siya? (Is he good?) That is not my business anymore. It is for disposal. Was he a president? Yes. Diktador ba sya? That is not my problem.
So mao na karon. Kinsay ambisyoso diri? Kay naay gireserba sa libingan sa bayani. Ihatag ko na nimo kay ako didto rako sakong ginikanan. Kinsay kursonada magpalubong sa npa? Taas kamot. Hadlok man lagi daghan pulis. Npa hadlok ngadto palubong sa. Npa way magpalubong didto? Mao na, mao rana pahibaw on ta mo droga korapsyon economya. Ang una nihatag Chinese. Mga intsik.
(Translation: That’s it now. Who among you are ambitious? There’s a reserved slot in the Heroes Cemetery. I will give it to you because I want to be buried beside my parents. Who wants to be buried by the NPA? Raise your hand. You seem to be scared because there are policemen around. That’s what I’m talking about: I’ll let you know about illegal drugs and corruption. The first one to help was the Chinese.)
Pilay gihatag didto sa nueva ecija? 10 000 good for 10 000 addicts. Ambot asa nabutang. Mag ground breaking pami gipapili ko nila asaa ibutang. Balita nako didto sa bukidnon daghan pero ayaw nalang mo pag building. Didto nalang nato lapwaan. Bukog nalang nato ibutang sa. Diri nako ibutang kay center Cagayan bukidnon davao. Nia sa tunga. Ang balita nako gyud tinuod. Taga bukidnon menos kay mga buutan.

(Translation: Matigsalog tribe, other lumads, they’re okay. If you involve yourself in illegal drugs, you go here. I’ll send bombs through jets, I’ve shown to the those new jets which are faster than sound. Wala na, I told the airforce to pass by here.)
Kanang bukid pataga ug bomba. Ginagamit ko na na giingnan tamo di ko gusto makig away. I will talk to nur misuari tomorrow. Unya ang MI ga plantsa na sila federal structure. Kung di nato ihatag sa mga moro kaigsuonang muslim diri sa Mindanao, di gyud ta makatamtam we will never have peace in this life.
(Translation: I dropped the bombs in the rural areas, I’ve used that because I told you that I don’t want to engage in war. I will talk to Nur Misuari tomorrow. They have already ironed the federal structure. If we can’t give it to our Muslim brothers and sisters, we will never have peace in this life.)
You must realize. Ang Mindanao was part of the ancient Visayas empire of the malay race. Mao nang Indonesian, Malaysian, Mindanao, mao rana silang tawhana (they are those people). Kita malay ta pero diri ta sa taas (we are Malays but we are higher). Pero sa tinuod lang kanang Julo walay nakasulod diha (But to be honest, nobody would reach in Jolo.)
Nia mi sa daplin gi daug daug mi (We are just at the side, we are bullied), tanan produkto ani (we are all products of it). Governor Zubiri, tua tanan sa ila sa manila unya lain mugasto (they are all in Manila and other people would spend for it). Bakante residente upat lang ka tao (the resident is vacant for four people). Chinese. Ikaw one billion, one billion. O naa pa negosyo protektado ka.
Kanang airport diha sa PAL building na sa gobyerno (the PAL airport is from the government). Mao nang wala ko kung maigo ko ug drug lord wala may muingon nako (That is why nobody would tell me if I am already facing a drug lord). Leader ko yan ana ana (Leader ko yan, ganyan ganyan). Ang nihatag lag supporta nako diri ang mga Zubiri ug naay usa sa… Mawuaw man ko musulti. Kay ako man gud love. (The only person who supported me was the Zubiri, and someone… nahihiya akong sabihin, because I love that person.)

Niadto ko tung congressman ko. 1999 dugay na. pero I won by over 100,000. Mao na ang akong lecture ninyo ang gugma ayaw kalimti. Imp;ortante kaayo na. nagatungtong na sa paa sa babae. Tanbgtanga na kay madunggaban ka ana.
(Translation: It’s a woman, I’m not gay, love. You have to think of a woman governor. Love at first sight. She’s already married. I ran for a position in the congress, but I won over 100,000. That’s my lecture for you, don’t forget about love because it’s important. It’s a woman’s foundation. Don’t be naive or you’ll be dead.)
Because it is not in all meetings that you are present. So your presence today is very special and meaningful and I said because of that, because you are here, I would ask you to help bukidnon first. Thank you.
Maayo ang china. Maayo man sila sa atoa. Ang amerika amigo nako pero pasagdan lang ta ba. Ayaw tagdikiti. Ang atong mga saging low quality no good. Syempre suya man . pero pag amigo na ah Filipino quality very good. Ana lang man ana diplomasya. Good or bad.
(Translation: China is good to us, America is also good but we are left out. The quality of our bananas are low and not good. But of course, naiingit, but when we’re friends, Filipino quality is very good. That’s how diplomacy, good or bad.)
Naa na ang kwarta it has come in a matter of fact ingnon ko nalang si pinol, secretary Dominguez. Come here to talk to the governor.
(Translation: The money is already here, in a matter of fact, I’ll just tell Piñol and Secretary Dominguez about it. Come here and talk to the governor.)
Mga kaigsuonan ko, dagan salamat sa pagdawat kanako. Kung muadto mo manila, bisitahi ko sa malacanang. Ayaw lang mo pag dungan kay di gyud ta masakto didto. Ligo ligo lang mo sa pasig. Pagkahuman lutaw lutaw mo ngadto pero dad on ta mo sa manila bay, babye nalang.
(Translation: My brothers and sisters, thank you for accepting me. If you will go to Manila, visit me in Malacañang. Just visit me one at a time because we won’t fit there. Just take a bath there at Pasig [River] and float, but you will be carried away to Manila Bay, byebye na lang.)
I am inviting all of you. I just say office unya ang balay nako wa ko diha sa malacnang ka yang multo diha way batasan bisag adlaw magpakita. Di na maghuwat ngitngit ang buang. Mao ran a. mao pakit on tamo usna ka gamay akong kwarto.
(Translation: I am inviting all of you. I just say in the office but my house is not there in Malacañang because there are ghosts there. Very disrespectful because they even show up even in broad daylight. They won’t go away until evening. That’s all. I’ll even let you show my room.)
You know, my term as president begins and ends with public interest. Mao rana, diha ra ko kutob. (That’s all, it ends there.)
