President Rodrigo Duterte Unveils Plan to Arm Civilians in the Philippines

Published

on

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has a bold plan to combat crime in his country.

According to a report from Second Amendment Daily News, Duterte is giving away guns to private individuals in an effort fight off drug gangs.

He is specifically arming “Barangay Captains” who have previously been reluctant to report gang and drug-related crime. Such hesitance to report crimes was out of fear of violent repercussions from the gangs and drug dealers that they would be reporting on.

After careful deliberation with police and intelligence agencies, Duterte announced that he would provide community leaders with guns from the state arsenal.

According to Martin Dino, the Interior Department Secretary in charge of the Barangays, there are 42,000 of these “captains” who would be eligible to receive free or subsidized guns in private purchases.

Dino stated: “The condition is that the barangay captain should fight drugs and crime. If he is conniving with criminals, he could be the one shot.”

Earlier in June, Duterte declared that barangays would receive the same treatment as law enforcement or soldiers. In other words, Duterte proclaimed that they “will never go to jail” if they shot suspected criminals while on duty.

Edmund Abesamis, the president of the association of barangay officials, claims that this plan to arm civilians has the backing of the barangay association.

The plan to arm civilians is supported by the association of barangay officials, according to its president, Edmund Abesamis.

Unlike America, which has an extensive gun culture and very pro-gun laws when compared internationally, the Philippines does not have many options when it comes to arming it citizens.

Ideally, the country would have similar Second Amendment protections like America.

In the meantime, gun owners worldwide can at least breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Duterte is not going on anti-gun tirades like most international politicians are these days.

British Politicians Believe that the Wuhan Virus Pandemic Might Have Come from a Leak at a Chinese Laboratory

Published

on

On March 5, 2020, the Daily Mail reported that British politicians believe that the Wuhan Virus pandemic might have been caused by a leak originating from a Chinese laboratory.

Although senior insiders in the British government maintained that “the balance of scientific advice” is still sticking to the original theory that the virus was first spread to humans from a wet market in Wuhan, a leak coming out of a laboratory in Wuhan is “no longer being discounted.”

. A member of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s emergency committee recently said that while the latest intelligence report did not argue that the virus was “zoonotic” – coming from animals – it did not toss out the theory that the virus came from a leak at a Wuhan laboratory.

The member of the “Cobra” committee, which receives classified information from the security services, commented: “There is a credible alternative view [to the zoonotic theory] based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is that laboratory in Wuhan. It is not discounted.”

Wuhan is where the Chinese Institute of Virology is based in.

This institute is generally viewed as one of the most secure virology units in the globe.

The government-backed People’s Daily newspaper stated back in 2018 that this institute was “capable of conducting experiments with highly pathogenic microorganisms” like the deadly Ebola virus.

Scientists at the institute were the first to indicate that the virus’s genome was 96 per cent similar to one usually found in bats.

Despite being known for its tight security, there have been unverified local reports of workers at the institute becoming infected after being sprayed by blood. Subsequently, they would carry out the infection and spread it to the local population.

A second institute in the city, the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control is also speculated to have conducted experiments on animals such as bats to understand how the Wuhan Virus is spread.

Professor Richard Ebright, of Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute of Microbiology, New Jersey, said that while there is evidence that the Wuhan Virus was not created in one of the Wuhan laboratories, such a concept is not outside the realm of possibility.

Professor Ebright claims to have seen evidence that scientists at the Centre for Disease Control and the Institute of Virology studied the viruses with only “level 2” security – instead of the suggested level 4 security level – which “’provides only minimal protections against infection of lab workers.”

He continued: “Virus collection, culture, isolation, or animal infection would pose a substantial risk of infection of a lab worker, and from the lab worker then the public.”

He concluded that the evidence established “a basis to rule out [that coronavirus is] a lab construct, but no basis to rule out a lab accident.”

According to a study from the South China University of Technology, the Wuhan Virus “probably” originated from the Centre for Disease Control. Curiously, shortly after this finding was published, the research paper was deleted from a social networking site for scientists and researchers.

A few days ago, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government said it “did not recognize” claims the virus emerged from a Chinese laboratory.

Regardless of whether China purposely released the virus or not, the authoritarian country still poses a threat to American interests.

American policymakers will need to re-consider trade and immigration policies with the country.
