Nobel Peace Prize and Philippine Presidential Election. What is the background behind Maria Ressa's award?

The Norwegian Nobel Committee recently announced " It will award the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize to two journalists, including journalist Maria Ressa."  Regarding Ms. Ressa of the Philippines, the reason for the award was that "the vigorous activity has revealed the actual situation of the abuse of power in the Philippines, corruption by the government, violence, especially the drug crackdown of the Duterte administration, which has caused many deaths." The image of Ressa drawn by the Norwegian Nobel Committee and the Western media is "a model and outstanding journalist who uncovers power evil without crackdown." However, the problem is that the award was given this year, just before the Philippine presidential election, which will be held in May 2022. The term of office of the president is one term and six years, which prohibits re-election. Currently, a successor to the Duterte system, which continues to maintain a high approval rating of 80 to 90%, which has never been seen on the anti-American voluntary route for the first time in the history of the Philippines, is being sought. While Washington and its entourage are trying to dismantle the Duterte anti-American route, which "turns its back on the United States and collaborates with China," the Nobel Peace Prize for Filipino journalists cannot can't help but smell ugly.

Duterte's "Achilles heel"

Foreign media from Manila said, "Nobel Peace Prize-winning reporter Maria Ressa (58) leads the leading Philippine news site" Rappler ", repeatedly criticizing President Duterte, and detained herself. First, he continues to pursue the administration. Reporters Lessa and Rappler have reported investigative journalism about President Duterte, including the "drug war," in which at least 7,000 people were killed by security officials without trial. The president continued to blame "Lessa is a fraudster" and "crush". " The Western media continues to reiterate Duterte's "lawless rule", which is about to end his six-year presidential term, following the Nobel Peace Prize. For the Western mainstream media respondents, Duterte's next statement at the final pre-election rally in 2016 was a de facto declaration of human rights ignorance. "Forget about human rights laws. When I become president, I'll do the same as I did when I was Mayor of Davao. Drug traffickers, robbers, and lazy people, you should run away. As Mayor, I I've killed people like you "( In the modern world where the "rule of law" and "rechtsstaat" were established, there would be no top candidate for national affairs who made a "declaration of lynching" to criminals ignoring the judicial organization and courts. An outlaw was about to take office as president. Duterte's radical remarks were a great offensive for Western elite reporters who had no opportunity to observe Filipino society from within, and became an "Achilles heel" for Duterte.

Why the public enthusiastically supports Duterte
The Filipino masses and general voters reacted quite differently, causing Duterte to be elected president by a wide margin. He enthusiastically supported Duterte's stance of transforming Davao, Mindanao, which was a den of crime, into the most secure and peaceful city as the mayor, and it was rotten by the colonial rule of Spain and the United States for about 400 years. He expected his skill to wipe out the pus of society.
The masses were obsessed with the oligopoly rule of the former "elite democracy" that was subordinate to the former suzerain, the United States, and tried to retain and expand vested interests, and the extreme disparity society that it brought about. Because there is a law in the Philippines, but there is no rule of law, and administrative organizations and courts are mostly dominated by money instead of law. Both the central government office and the local government have become a yakuza organization to the extreme.
Duty authority is a racketeering tool, and the police are one with the criminal organization, so the murder-robbery case is never resolved. According to a September 2020 poll by a leading polling agency, Duterte's approval rating was 91%. More than four years after his inauguration, this figure was staggering. In the first midterm elections of the Duterte administration on May 13, 2019, the presidential faction won both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
People are aware that Washington is behind the so-called "political slaughter" of anti-American activists, which began to occur frequently after the complete withdrawal of US military bases in 1992. It has been 30 years since the withdrawal of the US military. Thousands of murdered activists and reporters. Without mentioning this, the injustices of the Western media condemning Duterte's extrajudicial killings have been spotted by people.
The overwhelming support of the Duterte administration is due to the restoration of order and the elimination of the large land ownership system that has been the source of poverty that successive administrations after independence in 1946 have neglected. This is because we are steadily promoting agricultural land reform.
The United States wants to dismantle the Duterte route
In the May 2022 presidential election, current Vice President Rodrigo, boxer and national hero Pacquiao, and Mayor Moreno of Manila, the capital, are running for "anti-Duterte." In addition, former Senator Ferdinand Marcos, who is close to Mr. Duterte, has also filed a candidacy.
Meanwhile, in a presidential poll conducted by a private opinion poll company in September, Duterte's eldest daughter, Sarah, the mayor of Davao City, who denied running, ranked first with 20% support. Marcos is second with 15% approval, Moreno and Pacquiao are third and fourth respectively, and Robledo is sixth with 8%, demonstrating that voters want to inherit the Duterte route. rice field.
In addition to the fact that party candidates can be replaced until November 15, there is a strong belief that Sarah will run for Duterte in the last presidential election after his retirement declaration. Maria Ressa's peace prize gives a glimpse of Washington's willingness to prevent the succession of the Duterte route.
Note: The birth of the Duterte administration in the Philippines had a major impact on both the US and Japanese governments, and February 2019 discussed how the approach between China and the Philippines affected the power balance of East Asia. The long article "due to the unity of Duterte and Xi Jinping, the China siege network of Japan and the United States breaks down " is reprinted. A read of this will give a clearer picture of the political intent of this year's Nobel Peace Prize.
