Obama Loses the Philippines to China and Russia

"The United States-Philippines alliance is built on a 70-year history of strong people-to-people ties, including a vibrant Filipino- American diaspora and a long list of shared security concerns. So the focus of the Obama administration right now is on the broad relationship with the Philippines and our work together in the many areas of mutual interest to improve the livelihoods of the Filipino people and uphold our shared Democratic values." White House Flak Josh Earnest 10/5/2016

Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also, America has lost,” he said to the crowd of over 200, later adding, “There are three of us against the world -- China, Philippines and Russia. It’s the only way.”

"I will not go to America anymore. We will just be insulted there. So time to say goodbye my friend," President President Rodrigo Duterte.

More than 250,000 Americans have settled in the Phillipines, many former service men and women opening businesses and putting down roots near Subic Naval Base.   

The residents of Olongapo are also fearful that one fine day, Duterte might decide to throw them out of the country because they are Americans. "The biggest fear is that one day he's going to wake up and say 'everybody from the U.S., get out of town' and we'd have to leave our loved ones behind," Jack Walker, a retired Marine sergeant who has lived in the city for five years, said.
President Obama's soaring rhetoric and parsing poetics have created a dire situation in the most important Pacific Rim strategic outpost of American military and economic power.  

President Obama surrendered the Philippines without a Bataan, or Corregidor.  He does not even know what he has done - he is baffled. 

President Obama does not like plain people and especially plain spoken people.  He also dislikes with great enthusiasm anyone that Valerie Jarrett tells him to be really bad - a person who might be called 'a colorful guy' who wants to be supported in the fight against Islamist Terrorists, whom Valerie Jarrett identifies as drug dealing Narco-terrorists.  Obama and Obama's folks have repeatedly condemned Duterte as a human rights violator for killing Islamist terrorists, whom Obama deems drug traffickers. His State Department and stripped pants boys are and have been baffled:
 One U.S. official, who did not want to be identified, said there had been an active internal debate in recent months on how far to go in criticizing Duterte's government on human rights and that the measured tone adopted was not as strong as some aides would have liked.
U.S. attempts to raise questions about Duterte's campaign against drugs, in which more than 3,000 people have been killed since he took office in June, have drawn angry denunciations by Duterte. He has derided Obama as a "a son of bitch" and said he should "go to hell."
"It doesn't seem to help to say anything because the minute you say something, he just lets loose his barrage of obscenities," said Murray Hiebert, deputy director of the Southeast Asia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "I think for the U.S. to just blast him constantly is probably not very effective."
Obama taunted and painted the popular President of the Philippines into a corner with 'pimp slap diplomacy.'  Duterte is a plain man and plain men 'don't play.'

President Duterte, 'colorful guy,' has been insulted by President Obama on many occasions is not baffled at all. 

The People of the Philippines who embraced democracy, after decades of American occupation and heroically withstood and welcomed liberation from Japan, sent their sons to Korea, Vietnam and the endless Wars on Islamist Terror are now rioting against America.  That is tragic. They are great people.  Abusing great people is an American Progressive's past time. 

President Obama's White House is and has been Valerie Jarrett's tool in efforts to make Iran a world player.  She has won and America has lost another ally.  Pooh says, the stripped pants boys:

"There is no question that Duterte is...trying to play the well-worn game of playing us off against the Chinese," another U.S. official said, on condition of anonymity.
State Department spokesman John Kirby said on Thursday that the United States will seek an explanation from Duterte over his "separation" announcement, which he made during a visit to China. But he limited criticism to calling the remarks "baffling" and "inexplicably at odds" with close ties between Washington and Manila.
Plain people do not play. Duterte is pissed and he has not parsed his piss.  He will do what he says, he will do.

Someday, soon, many Americans will realize that President Obama had no business taking the oath of office.  The Americans living in the Philippines are getting it. 

Put this way by a American expatriate in Subic Bay, just off the naval base that Americans controlled until 1992 and began reusing in 2014 to help with the maritime patrols: “I am going to keep safe inside at night for this period. Keeping your nose clean is the solution.”
Treating friends with respect is another good idea.

The Philippines (and Duarte personally) is hoping to cash in on a Chinese ally, but they have a history of unreliability. The ten or so billion that China is putting on the table is worth it to them for propaganda purpose and to to deny US basing rights. However it remains to be seen how long this lasts. Irrespective of Duarte, the US is popular among the people in the P.I.
