|Speech of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his attendance to the People’s Day Celebration|
|Brgy. Batong Dalig Socorro, Oriental Mindoro|
|29 March 2017|
|Uunahin ko na lang po ‘yung greetings ko dito sa lahat na nakasulat. Dalawang listahan ‘yung sa akin, PMS pati ‘yung dito. So dito ‘yung masusunod po. Babanggitin ko lang ang mga pangalan nila. And of course I’d like to greet Lieutenant General Ferdinand Quidilla, the commander Southern Command sa Luzon; si Police Superintendent Wilben Mayor, regional director PNP 4-B; and Major General Roderick Parayno, he was my Task Force Davao commander before, he was a good officer; si Colonel Antonio Parlade; and the commanders 23rd IB Southern Command; PA Jose Maria Nicomedes; ang sumalubong sa akin si Dennis; Governor Alfonso Umali Jr.; Governor Mario Mendiola; Representative Paulino Salvador Leachon; Representative Umali; Representative Sato; Bot, maraming salamat; Mayor Romulo Festin, mayor San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.
I remember that day pumunta ako dito dahil nagkakampanya ako, wala ho akong kakilala except ‘yung mga brod ko nauna dito sa law school. And the only one who…Well, of course, walang pulitika ito. Ibig sabihin just vignettes of life. Usapang buhay na lang.
Si Bubot ‘yung nag-invite sa akin dito. Sabi niya, “halika, ipakilala na lang kita sa barangay ko.” Of course, tinanong ko siya… I’m not good at Tagalog so I’d come and out English-Tagalog. I took it as a debt of gratitude really, because he was the only one who recognized me as a candidate for the presidency.
In the fullness of God’s time, it came to pass that I won the election and si Bubot naman madalas sa Davao. So sabi ko, “Bot, maski na papaano, kailangan bumalik ako doon sa inyo para magpasalamat sa mga tao, whatever it is.” [applause]
Dahil nga naman, ako po’y — ‘yung partido ko po ay PDP at local lang ‘yan in the sense that about the only active members, well, of course, except for the chapters, the nationally known leaders are Koko Pimentel and the father.
So ‘yung partido ho sa Mindanao, ‘yung lang ho ang sinakyan ko. Eh wala naman akong ibang partido at nanalo ako. Salamat naman. At ako po’y walang [applause]… I’d like to assure everybody, si Governor, si Congressman Umali, pati lahat po kayo, nanalo ako halos walang partido. At wala po akong pera noon kaya maka-byahe lang kung may magdating na tulong.
So it was my fraternity brothers who sponsored my trip here and ito na po. Wala akong partido at wala akong utang na loob maski kanino except for Bubot and si [applause]… Personal na po ‘yun. Kaya naman si Bubot, sabi ko, “Bot, mamili ka ng lugar sa buong mundo, at papasyalin kita.” [laughter] Kasama niya noon si ano rin mayor ng Virac. Natalo siya pero si Nanette Alberto eh habang nagsasalita ako doon sa gym, wala namang taong nakikinig. ‘Yun lang mga brod ko rin, ‘yung mga Bicolano na urag-uragon. [laughter]. Sila ‘yung nag-alalay sa akin.
There were few… Far and wide in between the seats kay dumating si mayor, sabi niya, umupo siya doon sa harap ko. Sabi niya, “Pumunta ako dito dahil mayor ka, mayor rin ako for respeto na lang.”
So these are the two ladies na talagang tiningnan ko ng — may utang na loob ako. Kung maaari lang pakasalan ko sila. [laughter] Ang problema may tatlo na ako, maging lima mahirap na. Hindi kaya, hindi kaya sa bulsa pati sa katawan.
Well, anyway, I’m here to say ‘yung pera, the money of the Philippines is just as much. But you can be sure, nandiyan naman si Congressman Umali, hati talaga lahat. Walang pulitika ‘yan. The money will be divided pro rata, in proportion to the population at ‘yung halaga.
Wala akong pinili na dahil nanalo ako dito, natalo ako dito. Wala po ‘yan. Kasi ang sinabi ko hindi natin pera ‘yan and even if I lost there and won here, it’s just the same, I’m serving the Filipino people.
So masiguro ninyo, kung ‘yung mga ano, may congressman kayo, sabihin niyo ‘yung totoo — sabihin niya ‘yung totoo sa inyo, talagang pinaghati-hati natin ‘yung pera.
But you know the Philippines is a fasting — not really fasting but rather the fastest dito sa east ASEAN, sa akyat ha. I think I made the correct decision. Although at first, everybody was appalled but I said I just suddenly turned left at tiningnan ko ‘yung… Well, if you look at the map, it’s the eastern side of the Philippines ang China. I looked at the left and said I might as well go to China because our exports were not accepted.
Kung anu-anong pinagsasabi na rason: ‘Iyong banana ninyo walang quality, tapos ‘yung pineapple may mga sakit.’ And we were really suffering and only because their perception is that we are dovetailing, sinusundan lang natin ‘yung foreign policy ng Amerika.
I said no, we are a sovereign power and I think that we should chart our own. Although, we cannot enter into any military alliance with any other country because of the RP-US Pact, which was signed by our forefathers many years ago. Until now, it is enforced so it would be an incongruity for us to be joining alliances militarily with other countries.
But we remain friends with America, but I am chartering a new course. Kaya ngayon, bilisan ninyo. We are at our best level of friendship with China after I went there.
Sinabi ko, “I come here. I am not asking for anything. I only want to have trade and commerce with you.” But there’s… Apparently, there’s something wrong sa aming — ating trade, sa ating groupings, kasi bakit lahat ng produkto ng gobyerno hindi ninyo tinatanggap dito? At kung anu-ano ang rason ginagawa namin, we do it, and yet you add more requirement, making it really very hard for us to make the trade in balance. Mas maraming ‘yung ini-import natin kaysa tinatanggap nila.
After that, to the credit of President Xi Jinping, napakabait na tao. Pati ‘yung Chinese, talagang Chinese people, they are really good. They are faithful friends.
Sabi ko, wala akong kasali diyan sa giyera-giyera. Ako gusto ko lang makipag-kaibigan. So, ngayon, we are back at full normal, 100 percent na tayo sa banana pati sa pineapple. Pineapple is hitting again 70 percent.
Now, I’d like to hurry you up because sabi ng China, kung ano ang nasa inyo diyan, bibilhin namin lahat. At kung hindi masyadong maganda ang quality, huhugasan namin para maging quality. [applause]
Ganyan lang ‘yan ang buhay ng gulong ng palad. So halos lahat bibilhin nila. It’s a 5 billion, karaming bunganga ang kumakain.
Tapos the northern part of China, half a year it’s almost winter, wala silang mataniman eh. Kaya yumayaman sila kasi… Mayaman sila kasi alam nila kung papaano and they export a lot kasi ang China kinokopya lahat tapos they improve on the product.
Kaya kung makopya lang nila ‘yung buwan pati ito, kinopya na nila iyan noon pa. [laughter] Talaga itong Chinese, they are very enterprising tribe. So I’d like to thank China and ‘yung Presidente nila.
And I am going to Russia again to make friends with Putin. Si Putin naman, sabi niya, sabi ko we’d like to have a gateway towards your — down the eastern Europe. Sabi niya, sige mag-usap tayo. Sabi niya, kung anong kailangan mo sa mga baril-barilan, marami kami, I’ll give you. Sabi ko, no, I am not so much into war. My country is only a small one.
Itong sa China, itong masasabi ko sa inyo: We have not abandoned our claim. When I went to China, my first statement was, “I come here in good faith and I extend my hand in friendship.” Wala akong hangarin. Wala akong hinihingi sa inyo. Gusto ko lang mag-negosyo. Bibilhin namin anong kailangan namin tapos bilhin ninyo mga produkto namin. Tutal nagbibili naman kayo eh.
I explained about, you know, the strained relation, although it was more of an imaginary kasi I do not remember except that ruckus with — diyan sa China Sea. Nagalit lang siya kay Aquino and they hated Aquino and for the rest of his term, hindi tayo pinapansin.
Sabi ko, what’s so bad about going to the International Court of Arbitration? Sabi ko, “I am not here to impose on anything. As a matter of fact, I do not want to mention it here in your presence.” But, sinabi ko, “At any time during my term, we will have to talk about the arbitration of the China Sea. And when that time comes, I would present to you the judgment on all four corners of the paper and we will not talk about anything except the China.”
Sabi niya, “yes, okay”. Sabi ng mga pag-uwi ko, “Kailan ‘yan?” Aba, sabi ko. Eh bakit ako magi-giyera ngayon? Pinapunta ko ‘yung Navy ko eh ‘di ubos lahat ‘yan.
And you know, if we go to war with China, for what? The first thing that will be blasted away from this planet Earth will be Palawan. Nandiyan lahat ‘yung deposito ng mga armaments ng Amerika pati ‘yung atin.
Historically, there has been the animosity of who owns what. Sabi ko wala pa. Iyong construction nila, you know that is not part of our territory, territorial. It is part of our establishment. Kagaya nito kaharap mo ‘yan Pilipinas, marami tayong kaharap eh. Vietnam, Thailand… Binigyan tayo ng sariling fishpond ‘yan ang inyo. Kung ano ang nandiyan inyo. Pero wala — ang nandito ngayon isda lang. Nakabalik na ‘yung mga Pilipino. They are doing a brisk business. They have allowed the Filipinos to enter unbridled, unfettered and they can fish as much. Huwag lang ‘yung lagoon doon kasi pati ako ayaw ko talaga. Even if there is a contestant there, dalawa tayo or Vietnam is also claiming it, Taiwan. The fact is you cannot fish on the lagoon, ‘yung parang lagoon, in the middle of the seas because that is the spawning ground. Diyan mag-i-itlog ang… So everybody has the good sense to understand that. China does not allow it and I will not allow it also because it is not against any nation, it is against the environment.
So iyan ang ano ko diyan. But when they start to excavate or whatever there is in the bowels of the sea, tapos may pera na, katukin ko sila: “Tao po. Ang amin. Paano na lang ito?” Iyan, that’s about the time.
Pero kung sabihin mo na the concrete… Eh sabi ko nga sa Amerikano, nag-usap kami ni ano — I supposed it’s not a confidential thing. I was talking to the ambassador yesterday afternoon — yeah, afternoon.
Hindi ko malaman kung sa Davao, dito, nalilito na ako sa [kurus-kurus?] Sinabi ko, you know I’m surprised really, Mr. Ambassador, because had America really wanted to avoid trouble early on, eh ‘di sana ‘yung overflights ipinakita na doon sa newspaper that there was something a brewing, there was something as if a runway was being built. And there were some concrete buildings on the side of the coastal site.
Why did you not send the armada of the Seventh Fleet which is stationed there in the Pacific to just make a U-turn and go there and tell them right on their face, stop it? Because there is another set of law which says, you cannot build man-made structures diyan sa high seas.
Sabi man ni ambassador, alam mo hindi assignment ko ‘yan noon, ang assignment ko ‘yung kababayan niya, hindi niya ka — kadugo niya si North — ‘yung si Presidente ng North Korea, isa ring sira ulo. Sabi niya, “I was not the one.” But you know, you can see the gray hair it’s because of him. Tinuturo ‘yung [kulungong?] na leader, Kim Jong-un ba ‘yon?
But let’s go to the basics. Manny has the billions. Ang pinakamalaki kong buhos is agriculture pati education. Talagang buhos ako. [applause] And I’d like to inform the farmers ‘yung irrigation fees na 5,000, wala na ‘yon, tinanggal ko. Libre na ang tubig. [applause] ‘Pag dating ng bagyo, lalo na libre lahat. Sobra ang tubig.
Pero wala na kayong alahanin sa ano and we will build… By the way, the newly appointed administrator was with me since 1988 when I first ran for the mayorship of Davao City. Ang sinabi ko sa Cabinet members, the first whiff of corruption, maghiwalay-hiwalay tayo.
And because I am watching the — ang pinakamalaki 150 billion ‘yang irrigation na ‘yan. So I’ll keep watch on everything. Because if you.. Kasi wala kayo dito kaya hindi ninyo alam, sorry. Hindi ninyo alam ‘yung promise ko. May promise pa naman ako mamigay ng 5 million each. Noong nandito noon. [laughter] Kakaunti lang ‘yon sila. Hindi aabot ng ano ‘yan. Kaya ng mga kaibigan ko ‘yan.
You know, I made three promises and I’d run fast. First is that I’ll stop corruption. Talagang hihintuin ko ‘yan. Mamatay man lahat, p**** i**. [applause] Corruption will stop and it will really stop. Kaya ako nagwa-warning lang sa lahat.
Noon in the economic body, NEDA, it would take them about two to three years to process the papers. Ngayon in my term, I said to everybody, sila Secretary Piñol, it’s one month, palabasin mo ‘yan. It’s either approved or disapproved but let it out of the office. And I am just warning the directors here maski sino, ma-bureau of prisons, bureau of plant, you only have 15 days.
Therefore, you must husband the routinary run of the document. I-husband mo, tingnan mong mabuti parang asawa nanganak — ikaw ‘yung husband, that’s the term, it’s colloquial. You husband it so that it will go out of your office, director’s office, 15 days.
You do not do that, I’ll call for you sa Malacañang. Mamili ka sipain kita o sampalin kita. [laughter] Totoo. Hindi ako nag-aano, tutal ginagawa ko naman noon. Pero mayor lang ako noon. Ang problema baka mag-ganti, [laughter] patay tayo. Iyan mga sundalo o. Takbo lang ako sa gitna nila. [laughter]
Totoo corruption has to stop. Corruption has to stop. Iyon ang pangako ko.
Corruption then drugs.
You know drugs is destroying my country, your country. There are about 4 million addicts contaminated with shabu. It’s a chemical. It’s not like heroin and cocaine galing sa organic. Tanim eh. Itong shabu, constant use of shabu depending on the severity of the use at any given time, your brain will shrink and if the brain is shrank, rehab is no longer viable. Hindi na pwede. Kaya makita mo dito, marami dito sa… Kasi when I was here ‘yung isang that…
But there was certain guard there sa penal colony na nahuli nag… P***** i** ninyo, sabihin ko talaga sa inyo ha. Mag-prangka ako, when I was… I have been mayor of Davao for 23 years, congressman — about 40 years all in all. I never lost an election but many — a criminal lost their lives along the way.
Sinabi ko talaga, do not destroy my city because we desperately need to develop and progress. We are hitting the two million mark. Multi-tribe tayo dito, Maranao, Maguindanao, Bisaya, Tagalog, Pampangueño, Ilokano. We have to make a go for it or else we’ll go kaput.
Do not destroy my city by committing crimes, kidnapping. Alam mo Malacañan, Manila eh. Hindi naman Malacañan diyan doon. Wala naman guwardiya.
In every corner, every inch of the territory, sinabi ko, if you do that I’ll kill you. Then when I became president, I never realized the dimension of the contamination. The widespread use of shabu, 4 million including now the ones who surrendered before me noong pagsabi ko, “surrender or I will kill you.” And they went out, kita mo parang galing Nazi prison camp, payat, and they were surrendering by the hundreds of thousands.
We have breached the one million mark, one six na ngayon eh. The old three million was the figure given by PDEA during the time of General Santiago. The one million plus mark is a new one. I don’t know if it’s a redundant count but even if it is, how many of the 4 million are already beyond redemption, beyond rehabilitation? Iyan ang problema ko.
Alam mo marami… There’s a guy from San Beda here a board member? Are you here? Taga-San Beda siya, we are both lawyers. Just food for thought. You know in criminal law, when you try a person in court or being prosecuted, it is important that you recognize his discernment. He must be in complete mental faculties. Pagka merong [siak?] ‘yan, liki, eh for example at the time when he committed the crime, he was still good. But at the time of the trial, he no longer understands, he does not have a discernment of what is right and what is wrong. You cannot prosecute the idiot.
Now, try to remember kasi puro black propaganda naman ang alam nitong kabila. Try to remember previously that there were 77 drug-related killings in the Philippines. Just for example, about 25 or 20 percent of them were committed by those who were already partly insane. At ngayon mahuli mo, in the cleansing process now we’re reviewing, kung ikaw ‘yung pumatay and the defense would say, ‘Your honor, we would like to make a preliminary inquiry kung talaga ba ito he can stand trial or not because he appears to be crazy. He is mumbling and he is repeating his words.’ ‘Pag sinabi ng forensic doctor, ‘He cannot stand trial. He is crazy.’
Who will now answer for the lost lives? Who will now answer for the children ‘yung mga babae, mga bata, 11 years old? It used to be the fad of the idiots. There was a month that there were about 16 infants were raped in the greater Manila area. One year old, 18 months old, ‘yung kinuha doon sa pavement katabi ‘yung nanay. Inilagay sa ilalim ng jeep tapos… In Davao, when we discovered the child his abdominal cavity was really open.
Sinong managot nito? Who will answer for that? And in my time, I get the responsible to go after the criminals and to solve the problem. Sa four million at meron iba diyan, let’s say just about 20 percent are crazy. That is why I said, do not do it to my country. Do not deprive us of our young sons and daughters kasi pagtanda namin, when we get to be old, we are poor, we are not millionaires, at ‘yang mga anak natin those are the children that would feed us with porridge, lugaw kung hindi ka na makakain.
Our children will keep us… That’s the Asian… They would keep us in their houses. Just like what we are doing with our fathers and mothers. They would buy the oxygen, there would buy the… And they would have to mortgage the money. Alam ninyo ‘yan.
How many of you ‘yung tatay, your fathers and mothers are sick and you have to mortgage your — ‘di ba? Tapos you get to worry of this son of a b****. Sabihin nila, “Mayor, he was salva — ” And so what? The mayor said that he had a gun. The policemen said that he had a gun.
So sino ang… Sino ang paniwalaan ko? Whom do I believe? Iyong witnesses na mga preso o ‘yung pulis ko? Eh ‘di ang pulis ko. Now, they have been charged with murder. I will support them. Walang problema, lahat, every military and police who will do his job. This is my order. Go out and hunt for them. Arrest them if it’s still possible. But if they confront you with a violent resistance especially if they are armed, and you are in danger of being killed, my God, shoot the idiot and shoot him dead.
Iyan ang order ko. Pag ‘yan ang sinusunod ng pulis pati military, huwag kayong matakot ako, I and I alone will be liable for that. They are just obeying my order. So any policeman or military man charged for killing those bastards, they will have my protection. Do not… You can charge them with anything.
Mag-exhibition ako. Alam mo kung ano congressman? They go to court and I said no more trial, plead guilty—guilty. Dalhin mo doon sa judge, pardon, absolute. There’s in the Constitution my only weapon also against harassment against government men. Ano? The President shall have the power… Among the powers of the President ba-ba-blah-blah… The President shall have the power to pardon and convict either absolute or conditional or grant amnesty, amnesty is maramihan kung… Eh itong mga… Sino ‘yung NPA dito? [laughter] Kayo talaga. Huwag nang maghiya-hiya. Wala talaga ni isa o. [laughter] Imposible kung walang NPA dito.
Or grant amnesty with the concurrent of Congress kung magka-ayusan tayo. Palagay ko ma-ano ko, ma… I think that the… I said with the help God, I can, I can — we can have peace with the communists in my time. Baka lang, baka lang. I am… This is not a wild guess but baka kaya kong makuha talaga.
Wala… You see, we are talking with the NPAs so there is no more killings. Kaya lang minsan ito sila nagalit ako because hindi sila nagka-intindihan doon ni Dureza, Bebot pati ano. Nag-lift sila ng ceasefire February 12, February 4 pinagpatay na nila ang sundalo ko pati pulis ay sabi ko p**** i**. Kaya ni-lift ko February 4 sinabi — tinawagan ko si Chief of Staff General Año, sabi ko, “Sir, birahin mo na ‘yan sila.”
O ngayon gusto ninyo ng ceasefire o sige tingnan natin gusto nila mauna or simultaneous, fine. I can walk the extra mile. My job as President is to seek peace for my land. It is not my duty, it is not even a part of the presidency to wage a war against his own people. Sabi ko nga sa mga military pati pulis, siyempre nasaktan ‘yan sila.
You know, we have this fight against the NPAs, ang MI pati MN sa Mindanao have been going on for the last 50 years. Unless we are ready to fight for another 50 years passing on to the next generation the violence and this agony that we have suffered, kayo. Hindi sa lahat ng panahon mag-giyera tayo. Kalokohan ito.
Kayong mga komunista nakikinig ngayon, 50 years nandiyan kayo sa bukid, hindi ninyo makita ‘yung anak ninyo na pinalabas ninyo sa mundo. Hindi nga ninyo mapaaral, wala kayong pera. Hindi ninyo… Ang asawa ninyo nanganak, nagpalaki ng anak wala kayo. What the f*****.
Ano ba itong kalokohan na ito? Tapos gusto ninyo another 50 years? Ako, okay ako. May gobyerno, may pera, may taxes. But I said look that is not the… If I could just have peace with everybody. The problem is ang ISIS, the terrorist now that’s rampaging across the Middle East. They have appoint — anointed si [Hapilon]. Hapilon, nandoon sa Central Mindanao. Sabi ko, pinabombahan ko siya eh. We have not heard of him since then. Sabi ko, hulugan mo ng bomba ‘yung… You know, ang rebellion kasi let’s not fought with—kasi…
Pero talagang napika na ako sabi ko, gamitin mo na lahat. Nadaan na ba ‘yung jet dito? Pinadaan ko kasi ‘yung Air Force sabi ko, may bago tayong jet apat. Magbili pa ako — gawain ko ‘yan mga 12. Magtatlo-tatlo. Iyon ang bilis no’n pagdaan wala tayong marinig. Maya-maya nandoon na ‘yan bago pa ‘yung sound pero wala ka ng eroplano.
O ‘yan ang hindi makita ng mga gunggong [laughter] kasi paghulog ng bomba, nakadaan na. Naiwan ang sound doon sa Palawan. Eh ‘di pagputok. Eh ‘yon ang ginagamit ko, gamitin niyo ‘yan, pugpugin mo ‘yan.
Ako ayaw kong makipag-away, ayaw kong pumatay ng Pilipino pero huwag naman ‘yung… There has to be a time when we’ll have to talk peace. That is why I’m here. Ang akin ano lang naman I made a few promises. Then we were asked during the debates noong presidential. We were asked by this question, the five, kaming lahat na kandidato: “Are you willing to allow the burial of Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani?” Sabi ko, “yes.” Two reasons, because he’s a soldier and president. He was a soldier and a president. Whether he was a coward, he was a scoundrel or he was not doing his duty as a soldier, that is not my concern. I was not… I am called to judge the person now. I was not around. I was just maybe part of the atoms out then.
He was a president? Well, he was. Was he a bad president, a good president? That is not for me to answer. The law says unless he was a dictator. President they can be buried, soldiers or president, period. Eh abugado ako that’s the only thing that’s being asked there.
Kaya ako… If I have a place there in the Libingan the cemetery… If there is a place for me there, you can have it. [laughter] May I’ll just… Just burn my body and place the urn beside my father and mother. Kung gusto sa inyo magpalibing ng hero?
Ito ha, I’m being castigated by EU. Ito namang EU for their naiveté, I pity those guys. Itong mga… Without offending you guys. Ito mga… Itong mga puti pagka-bugok talaga. [laughter] Terrible. No, you are not the one. I said I am trying to figure out the members of the EU parliament. [laughter] Taga-saan ba ito sila? [referring to the foreigners in the crowd] [laughter] [Sec. Piñol answers: Mga taga-Portugal ‘yan sir. Member ng yacht club.]
Because there is a lady here, kayong ba naniniwala na political prisoner si De Lima? Pinapa-release ng EU kasi political prisoner daw ‘yung sa pulitika. Anak ng… Tapos ako pa tuloy ang ipakulong.
[laughter] Buang, p***** i** itong [laughter and applause]
Kasi ‘yung marami daw akong pinatay 10,000, t**** i**, sobra naman ‘yan. [laughter] When I was a Davao City mayor for 23 years, magsabi ka ng 600 meron. Actually meron, criminals killed in action. Pero kung sabihin mo mag-utos ako ng—ayan si General Parayno nag-Task Force Davao man ‘yan. Tanungin mo, may inutos ba ako na patayin mo ‘yung tao nakadipa diyan on bended knees? You are not a warrior then… So what’s the, what’s your problem? You arrest them alive? Or you’re dead, fine. Pag alive, tutal sa presuhan, I have not — I have not expanded the space of the prison. So matulog ‘yan sila diyan nakatindig, ganon. Hindi na sila matumba kasi wala namang space. O ‘di [inaudible] sa inyo ‘yan.
The problem is how about the innocent? In my experience, out of 20 wala pa, siguro mga 13, may dalawa ganun, ‘yung innocently imprisoned. Pero karamihan talaga may sabit.
Itong si De Leila, political prisoner… Ilan nga ang lalaki? Ngayon na nasa kulungan siya, ayaw aminin, nagpadala pa ng ano ‘yung ang tawag sa amin noong bata pa kami extra, ‘yung the next showing, nanunuod ka, ‘yung next may mga cut ‘yan mga extra? Oo, mga trailer. ‘Yan pala. Trailer. Nagpadala pa siya ng trailer in advance. Nakita pa ng buong mundo. Di niyo nakita ‘yung trailer ninyo? Eh nandiyan sa video, tingnan lang ninyo uli. ‘Yan man ang trailer niya. Fighting ano.
Tapos ngayon doon sa EU ako pa ang kontrabida. Sabihin ko sa inyo ulit kasi I have to go home because ang… Eh ‘pag mahulog ako diyan maghanap kayo sa akin [laughter] Isang buwan kayong mag-kagkag diyan sa… Saan na ‘yung Duterte na ‘yon? [laughter]
Ano bang isda dito? Kasi ‘yung lapu-lapu sa Davao noong mayor ako, mataba. Kasi ang pagkain no’n tao. [laughter] Dito ‘pag nahulog ako, p***** i** tataba ‘yung tilapia ninyo. [laughter]
I only have… I have 35 minutes to fly out kasi… Eh kung mahulog eh ‘di si Robredo na. Naloko na. [laughter] Back to happiness si Congressman Umali kay Liberal. [laughter] Na kay si Bebot pala iyak, Bubot, o sige ‘yan iyak. Ganyan talaga ang buhay.
Well, anyway, I may just… A few promises that I would never interfere in the economic planning, ganun, sabi ko… Ibigay ko ‘yan sa mga bright. Halos lahat bright ‘yan. Tugade, ‘yun ang aming valedictorian. Si Yasay was my roommate when we were taking the bar. Si Dominguez, he’s the owner of Marco Polo sa Davao. Talagang Kindergarten pa lang ‘yan bright na, bright talaga ‘yan. Palaging valedictorian. Lahat. Si Vitaliano Aguirre, cum laude ‘yan. Lahat ‘yan sila bright. Tugade is a billionaire actually. He was the chief executive operating officer ng Delgado Brothers Shipping. Working student ‘yan pero mo-top.
Ako lang diyan ang 75, 75 pero [laughter] — dahan-dahan. Umaakyat man pero, kasi ‘yung valedictorian ganon, ganon. Accelerated pa. Ako ‘yung one step at a time. Tutal ‘yan hagdanan ginawa talaga ‘yan para ganon. [laughter] Eh kaya makita mo… Pero sa awa ng Diyos ha. Ayan sila Pernia, UP ‘yan. Briones, magna cum laude ‘yan sa UP noon. Taguiwalo, she’s left, Mariano is left, Maza is left. May apat ako diyan na komunista. Mahuhusay. Mga bright ‘yan. Ako 75 pero sa awa ng Diyos, mga trabahante ko lahat ‘yan sila. [laughter and applause]
Pati ito. Piñol graduated valedictorian. Ganyan-ganyan lang ‘yan pero valedictorian ‘yan. Totoo. [speaks local dialect] Ka bright. Ako, iyong tamang-tama lang. Inom dito, babae doon. [laughter] Injection dito kasi ‘yung sa amin pinador. Magkasakit ka. Kasakit. [inaudible] Every year nagpunta ako ng doktor, ano ka. Sabi ng doktor, baka magkaroon ka ng tolerance sa antibiotic. Maya-maya pag ganoon sa p***. O kaya na-Presidente naman. [laughter and applause]
Tapos ma-pick up ‘yan ng media, ayan nandiyan si Doris Bigornia ng ABS, putulin mo ‘yan Doris, putulin ko ulo mo. [laughter] Gawain nilang issue ‘yan. ‘Yung babae na ginaganoon ko. Kasintahan ko man ‘yon. [laughter] Totoo. Tanungin mo ‘yan sila. ‘Yung sa ano na pinalabas na babae raw pinilit ko. Biniro ko lang kasi may [til-as?] Alam niyo ‘yang [til-as?] ‘Yung makati. Sabi ko, hawakan, hinawakan ko. Sabi ko, magsama ka ngayong gabi, hapon na o hindi? Hindi kasi ‘yung regional office may dinner. [inaudible] Tapos sabi ginanon ko daw ‘yung babae sa stage. Kasintahan ko ‘yun. G*** [laughter]
Tingnan ninyo, meron diyan pinapalabas nila, ‘yung babae na hinihila niya ‘yung kamay niya. Undersecretary niya. Tanungin mo si Governor. Noon pa ‘yan, panahon pa ng… Totoo. Hanapin ninyo ‘yung black propaganda na may babae akong ginanon. Kasintahan ko ‘yan. Tanungin mo si….
Ngayon wala na [laughter] Kasi ‘pag — ewan ko ‘yung mga babae kasi mga babae mainit sa akin. Kasi ‘pag nung nag-oath ako, dalawa man ang asawa ko kay — ‘yung nanay ni Mayor, ‘yung mayor ngayon, hiwalay kami niyan. Pero alang-alang na hindi ko. May bago rin ako.
Kaya nung ‘pag inaugurate, dalawang [laughter] one President, two First Ladies. [laughter and applause] Sa Bisaya ‘yan ang tigas nila [brin?] [brin?] man ‘yan, [brin?] [laughter]
‘Yan lang ang ano ko. Kaya sabihin ko sa inyo, droga. You know, you have to drop. Kayo ba. Maraming… Ang sabi ko nga eh, sino ba ditong mayaman? O eh di si Bubot na lang.
Bot, siguro nasa negosyo ka. How long did it take you to earn your first thousands or million? ‘Yung talagang hanap-buhay mo? 20 years? T*** i** ‘yan.
Itong mga barangay captain, 40 percent of the total barangay captains, may tama. Kaya ‘yang election, walang election. Nagkakaproblema kami diyan. [applause] Mag-election tayo ngayon, ang mananalo, narco-politics.
We did not know that narco-politics was here with us in the government five years ago. Kasi may tama ‘yung mga barangay captain. Municipal mayor is about mga 300 plus, 346. Ang shabu, pumasok kayo ng shabu, in about two to three months, bilyonaryo kayo.
Pero ‘di ba ipinatawag ko na kayo lahat mga mayors? O pinatawag ko lahat ng mayors, hindi lang naman sila eh. Sinabihan… Ni-lock ko ang Malacañan para walang mapahiya.
Pero sabihin ko sa inyo anong sinabi ko. Pati governors, ibang araw. P***** i**, papatayin ko talaga kayo, huwag kayong magkamali, magkakaroon ka ng pera. Pwede kang ilibing doon sa — saan bang pinakamagandang memorial park dito? Pwede kang bumili ng bahay pero matirahan mo lang ‘yan siguro isa, dalawang… Talagang hihiritan kita.
Prangka-prangka, sasabihin ko sa — hiritan, anak ng. Hindi ako mambola basta hiritan kita. You know, I do not want to do violence. Pero ‘yang sabi-sabi ng opposition na mag-declare ako ng martial law, or suspension of the writ of habeas — ? It’s all here in my… When I took my oath of office, I promised to God and to the people that I will protect and defend the Filipino nation. Nandiyan na lahat ‘yan. [applause]
Kung sabihin ninyong illegal, bahala kayo basta huwag — drop the shabu now, during my term. Hindi ako papayag na aalis ako sa presidency na may iniwan — iiwan ko ‘yan. Hindi ko malaman kung sino ang susunod sa akin eh. ‘Pag hindi nila — pareho pa rin dati ah p***, kawawa ang Pilipinas. Kawawa ang anak ninyo. Then it becomes my burden now to answer balang araw.
Sa panahon mo nadiskubre. Sinabi mo wala kang kasalanan kasi nauna na sila. Totoo ‘yan pero ikaw ‘yung president eh. Bakit mo hindi ginawaan ng paraan?
Kaya ako, para wala tayong samaan ng loob, wala nang magalit sa akin, bitawan na ninyo ngayon lalo na ‘pag hindi pa kayo nakapasok. ‘Pag nakapasok na kayo, sumurrender na lang kayo at may rehab naman. Malaki pa ang bakante doon, ‘yung sa Fort Laur. 10,000 ‘yun ibinigay ng Intsik.
They donated a facility that could house, accommodate 10,000 addicts. Pumunta na lang kayo while it’s still early. Mamatay ta…
Alam mo sa totoo lang, kung hindi ako gagawa, may gagawa sa akin kasi hindi lahat ng Pilipino duwag eh. Hindi lahat ng Pilipino torpe papayag lang na ganoon ang bayan niya.
Maniwala kayo. Marami pang susunod sa akin, hihiritan talaga kayo. ‘Yang vigilantes, totoo ‘yan. Nakuha nila sa akin ‘yan kasi sabi ko, kung ako taga-rito, taga-rito ako, ama ako. Tapos ang babaeng anak ko, na-rape diyan, pinatay ng mga adik, wala akong gawin. Magbili ako ng baril, magbili ako ng silencer, maglalakad ako hahanapin ko kayo. ‘Pag naabutan ko kayo, talagang pak, pak, pak, pak.
Maski hindi ako Presidente, maski wala akong posisyon. Kaya siguro ’yang mga iba ganoon.
Ito, two minutes. Two minutes ha. ‘Yang OFW. Galing akong Thailand. Nakita naman ninyo sa TV, lalo na sa Middle East. Sa Middle East, whether you are bought in the slave markets of Africa, or you are paid to do, basta, you know. Sexual abuse. Hindi sa urban area. Kung ma-assign ka doon sa bukid, sexual abuse is included in the contract. Makita ko lang gaano kahirap.
A mother works there. Once the father or mother leaves the family, iniwan ang asawa pati anak, at that time dysfunctional na ang pamilya because the family would need the father. Now, isipin mo lang, ‘yung isa sa Qatar, ‘yung isa sa Saudi Arabia. And they have to endure sexual abuse and rape just to earn a living so that they can send the money for the schooling of your children. Tapos ilang taon silang magpakamatay, magpa— ? Pagbalik nila, ‘yung isa pinatay, ‘yung isa ni-rape, o ‘yung isa nalulong sa droga. Kita mo naman ang sakripisyo ng —
Kaya ako doon ako na… Umiinit talaga ako. Kaya sabihin mo, “This Duterte killing…” P***** i**. Sabihin ko, this mayor, you have to grieve for one, two son of a b****? And they have destroyed — Albuera, the mayor there sa Ley — destroyed so many thousands of lives there. Even the Bol-anons na peace-loving ‘yan, nagkaroon pa na p****** i**, nagbaha ang droga doon.
And then the Odicta couple, ‘yung pinatay sa — diyaan sa pantalan. Caticlan. Sila iyon. And ‘yung… Ang sabi ko sa una, ‘di ba ang unang-una ang sabi ko, Iloilo is the heaviest contaminated. Tapos iiyak kayong para p***** i** dalawang iyon.
Hindi ninyo naisip ilang 4 million Filipinos addicted to drugs? Tapos you waste tears? Kaya ako hindi ako magdada, p***** i** sabi ko huminto kayo. Talagang yayariin ko kayo.
If that is the only thing that I can do or I will do in this lifetime as President, I will do it. Just do not destroy my country. Iba na ang usapan dito ‘pag ka ano.
We might not really be kuwan, tribal… Magkatribo-tribo tayo. But long ago, our forefathers, they signed something with the blood na magkaisa tayo — we are a one nation because we belong to a tribe in the Malay race.
‘Yan ang tandaan ninyo. Kaya mahal ko talaga itong bayan ko. ‘Pag ka may ginawa ka na mali diyan, pasensiya na lang tayo.
Pero ako magpakamatay ako sa inyo. Ako lang… Totoo. [applause] Maghanap kayo ng dokumento na may pinirmahan ako na binigyan ko.
Ako sweldo lang. Hindi ako tumatanggap ng allowance pag ka Presidente. Wala. Nagyawyaw nga ako, 130,000 lang p****** i**. Paano itong dalawang pamilya ko? [laughter] Mangurakot ako nito. Buti’t dinagdagan nila. 200,000, ito arang-arang na. At least ‘yung iba may pang hotel na ako. [laughter] ‘Yung walang bahay. Totoo.
I am really speaking from the inside from my heart. Marami akong… I have so many faults, many, aplenty. There is just one thing na hindi mo ma-ano sa akin it’s corruption. I have not signed any paper. Allowance, allowance, ganon? Wala. Sabi ko, huwag na.
I’m 72 yesterday. I cannot eat na gusto ko. Sabihin naman, cholesterol mataas. Hindi naman ako — kani o sugar mo, bantayan mo kay six na. Tapos hindi ka — wala na, hindi na makainom kasi may Barrett.
I cannot smoke because of the… Iyong pinost diyan sa ano ‘yung oxygen ko. Kasi kung matulog ako ganoon lang, ‘yung oxygenation ko hindi maganda because of smoking.
That is why in the coming months, we will be implementing the no smoking law in the Philippines. [applause] You can only smoke if you are in the open sea, at least five kilometers from the coastal shores. [laughter] Doon kayo maghithit. P***** i**.
I have to go. Senyas nang senyas na ang security. But I am really very happy to meet you again. Not all but… If there’s any problem, any problem, do not think of politics when you’re in front of me. I just mentioned it kasi I have to because utang na loob ‘yan eh. Pero para hindi na kayo ma-problema, maraming squatter dito. I-reclaim natin lahat itong lake mo Mayor. [applause]
Gusto ninyo? I-reclaim ninyo? Para wala ng dagat, ano na lang. I-reclaim natin tapos bigyan ko kayo tig-isang mall. Limang airports siguro na malalaki.
Hindi, ganito. Let me be very frank, I am beyond politics. I do not be… I do not want to be tainted ‘yung panahon niya ganon-ganon, ‘yung kapartido lang niya. Kokonti lang man sila, dalawang babae. Sabi ko nga kung pwede pa itong pakasalan, pakasalan ko na para… But I must insist on law and order.
Kasi ako ho noong hindi pa ako na-mayor, piskal ako dati so I am very strict diyan sa… But remember about drugs. Do not allow your children. Itataya mo ‘yung mga apo ninyo eh.
Kaya join me, tutal kayong mga pulis wala kayong problema. Akin iyan. ‘Pag nasabit, akin ‘yan. Kung wala na akong magawa, buksan ko ‘yang Muntinlupa lumayas na kayo kung saan ninyo gusto. [laughter]
Basta hindi ko papayagan makulong ‘yang mga iyan.
Maraming salamat po.
