Breaking: PDEA Director dismantles Oplan Tokhang and Oplan Double Barrel

      Happening now: Interview of PDEA Director Aaron Aquino by News to Go anchors Kara David and Howie Severino:

      PDEA Director Aaron Aquino in answer to a query said he was dismantling Operation Tokhang and Operation Double Barrel as all operations and activities in pursuing illegal drug suspects have been transferred to the PDEA.

   No details were released by the PDEA Director on how they planned to conduct the anti-drug operations except to say that they had 2,000 personnel and would be wearing green PDEA  shirts as their uniform.

     This came when, less than 72 hours after the release of the SWS survey on an 18% steep fall in the President’s satisfaction rating, the President immediately transferred supervision and control over the war against poor drug users, este, er, the war against illegal drugs, to the PDEA. 

   (might we suggest a more rational operation to the PDEA: go for the big fish — they’re swimming in the ports of entry, bays and harbors, and wading in plush villages… But what about those responsible for the massive killings?

Sara Duterte balks at lifestyle check of husband

   from the Inquirer: “Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has dismissed as “unreasonable” the proposed lifestyle check on her husband, Manases, saying the allegations hurled against him were merely based on “chismis” and “lies”.
      “The Senate blue ribbon committee has recommended a lifestyle check on her husband and brother, Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte, over their alleged involvement in smuggling purportedly facilitated by the “Davao Group”.
       “In a text message to INQUIRER.net on Tuesday, the local chief executive said that while it would be “premature to discuss anything based on a DRAFT report” she nevertheless deemed the recommendation of a lifestyle check on her husband “unreasonable” should it “find its way into the FINAL committee report.” xxx”
