Keith Guinta Describes His Journey to Faith

"To talk about your trip to the Philippines with wipe every tier, which is this ministry that rescues young women from the sex trade. It's horrifying. But before we get to that, I just want to continue with your story a little bit. So people get to know you. So you come to faith as a teenager, and you get totally plugged in. And it's kind of interesting because I think there are people around the world and around this country, they're looking for environments like that and they can't find them. I mean, there's a lot of pathetic youth groups. There's a lot of pathetic youth pastors that they're not it's not real. What you experienced and what I had the privilege of experiencing, it was the real thing. These were people whose faith was mature. They might not have been perfect, but their faith was really mature. And I have said this to you many times that you were discipled by some of the best, some amazing people. Yeah. My cousin Scott, without doing it as a program, he discipled me in the most effective, powerful, lasting way possible. And that was, like I said, he was four or 5 years older. He took me under his way. He basically said follow me, follow him. So I was in the youth group and I went to church, but the most transformative thing for me just in terms of community is that he took me to where he hung out with his friends. I could list a whole bunch of names. I don't know if you would have known them. But I spent that first year with a group of people that were four or 5 years older than me. And that was more transformative than even youth group. Because you threw all the same age, you're not really sure who you are. I'm watching these people who were sold out for Jesus.

Keith Guinta of WipeEveryTear.org Discusses the Philippines

"As my guest right now, a very dear, old friend, Keith junta, Keith, and my pronouncing that right. Junta. Junta, I know how to pronounce it. I've known you for 30 years. We've been friends for all these years. The reason you're here today is not just because you're my friend, you know, you're well, there are two things I want to talk to you about. These extraordinary essays at wine patch dot org, that's the place. So you blog at wine patch dot org. I've shared a number of those things on social media. And on my newsletter, these are important pieces. So I want to encourage people right out of the gate, go to wine patch dot org and read what Keith junta is writing. But the reason you're here today is because you were just in the Philippines with a ministry called white wipe every tier. It is so beautiful what you do. You've written about that recently at wine patch. And I just said, when you get back from the Philippines I want you to come on the show and talk about this because this is, I mean, it's so beautiful that you and Kenny sacked who's been on the program with you before that you're doing this. So first of all, tell us what wipe every tier is. What is this ministry? Sure. Wipe every tear is based in Boise Idaho, and it's really just Kenny in a small staff there. But the primary staff is in the Philippines. So in Angeles city, which is just north of Manila, it is one of the worst places on the planet for sex trafficking. And so wipe every tear has set chop up there. We have safe homes. We have offices. We have staff. Most of the staff, first of all, it's all Filipino. And most of the staff are ladies who have been rescued from trafficking.

"Talking to keep junta about this amazing ministry Keith. It's called wipe every tier wipe every tear dot org, but it is amazing to hear about this. And I think it gives a lot of people hope who are listening. When you hear that some people because of their love of God are doing these beautiful things for strangers and good things that we need to hear these stories. And you were also talking about how it's not just about like a evangelism. The evangelism is kind of like the starting line. Like, okay, you bring Jesus into the equation. But then lives change. There's redemption. There's healing. And it affects entire societies, which is really, that's the most beautiful thing, is that it affects all kinds of things that you wouldn't even know, so talk a little bit more about what happened on this recent trip that you just returned from. And to your point right there, imagine D, as we'll call her, imagine generations from now when the grandkids are telling the story of how grandma was met by this Christian organization that got her out of the bar, got her college degree, and who knows that it's changing a lineage for generations when you do this. But I would love to highlight a couple more things this bethel team, they walked in, they carried a fire that I just have not experienced. And this is the bethel church that's centered in Redding, California, Bill Johnson, of course, the founder and leader of that amazing man of God. But they are raising up a whole generation of young people that are very spiritually mature. I mean, it's kind of amazing. And now they're deploying them around the world. Around the world, this was an international team and it was also it was exciting to see many of them, not many, but there were a decent amount of them from the Philippines.

We're focused on providing Ukraine the capability that it needs to be effective in its upcoming anticipated counter offensive in the spring. Kremlin spokesman Dmitri peskov described reports of new U.S. Military assistance to Ukraine as a direct path to inciting tensions and taking escalation to a new level. Peskov also said that the help from the U.S. will not change the course of events, but just require more effort on the part of the Russians. I'm Karen Chammas

Worldwide Grassroots Projects Can Lead Crypto Recovery

"We're going to start with a piece by Michael Casey, coin desk's chief content officer called worldwide grassroots projects can lead crypto recovery. The subheader reads crypto is not hurting lower income in marginalized communities, but instead providing them with new tools through innovative governance models and tokenomics to regain control from historically oppressive financial systems. During the House financial services committee's FTX hearings last month, representative Jesus Garcia, Democrat from Illinois, described crypto as an entire industry that thinks it's above the law. And then said something that irked me even more than that unhelpful opening generalization. Crypto companies quote are making money using one thing hype, Garcia said, and when hype runs out and ordinary investors especially late comers who are disproportionately low income black and Latino lose. Now it's true that many people of color bought crypto in recent years, and that by extension many have lost money on account of Celsius network, FTX, Voyager digital at all. But there's a subtext to Garcia's comment, whether or not he consciously intended it. That patronizingly paints certain communities in the U.S. and elsewhere as ill informed and vulnerable, denying them agency and blindly missing a bigger story of empowerment. Take a look at hundreds of grassroots crypto projects led by blacks and Latinos in the U.S., and at the many crypto based business models arising in Africa, Asia and Latin America, and you will find large swaths of human beings from income challenged. Marginalized or oppressed community seeking new ways to take charge of their lives. There's a reason why the top four positions in chain analysis activity and purchasing power weighted country ranking of per CAPiTA crypto adoption are occupied by Vietnam, the Philippines, Ukraine and India, and why the 6th through tenth position belonged to Pakistan, Brazil, Thailand, Russia and China. And according to a forthcoming report on black experiences in web three, from the crypto research and design lab cradle, there's also a reason why the 5th position is occupied by the U.S.. The only developed western country on the list. It's because of an outsized level of adoption among black Americans.

A Prayer for Everlasting Peace

"Perfect peace is a gift from the lord. Peace I leave with you my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 1427. Perfect peace exceeds our understanding. And the peace of God was transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians four 7. Perfect peace is everlasting. Cast your pairs on the lord and he will sustain you. He will never let the righteous be shaken. Song 55, 22. The storm that passed over our home that night came and left quickly, but some storms last for a long, long time. The piece of Jesus not only speaks to the storms in our lives, but it sustains us through the longest trials. The everlasting peace of Jesus may be hard to comprehend, but once we experience it for ourselves, we are forever changed. However long storm we're facing last, God is faithful. His piece is available to us from beginning to end. Let's pray. Dear lord, thank you for giving me your everlasting peace. Whatever storms I face in life, I can call out to you in prayer and ask for the peace that surpasses all understanding. Philippines four 6. The peace of Jesus is a precious gift that will speak to even the longest lasting storms. Forgive me for trying to find peace and other places. It never lasts. Your peace is the only perfect piece. It calms my heart and sustains me through my hardest times. It reminds me that you are always with me, bringing comfort when my mind is in turmoil. I trust you, father. Help me to stay in perfect peace. Help me rely on your faithfulness when I'm tempted to worry. Thank you for giving us your son, the prince of peace. Through his love, we have everlasting peace in this life and the hope of eternity. Praise the name of your son, Jesus. In his name I pray, amen.

"philippine" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"But first. Apple. Today marks another milestone in an astonishing turnaround for a famously political family. Back in May, Ferdinand Marcos junior, who's known as bong bong, handily won the Philippines presidential election. Marcus junior, the duly elected president of the republic of the Philippines. The profane tough guy incumbent Rodrigo Duterte has served out his one allowed 6 year term, having led a brutal crackdown on drug users. Today, his daughter Sarah became vice president and bong bong became president Marcos. Or rather, the next president Marcos. The last one was his father, defeated by a populist movement led by khorasan Aquino in 1986. What is it that has brought this nation to its knees? The answer is inescapably clear. Mister Margot. The Marcos regime had become notorious for its brutality for its corruption, and perhaps most of all, for its extravagance. Even those who knew little of Philippine politics knew that the president's wife imelda had a staggering number of posh shoes. When Marcos senior was deposed, ending up in exile, few would have guessed that there would be another Marcos leading the country. But a lot can change in 36 years. At noon today Ferdinand bongbong Marcos junior became president of the Philippines. Leo morani is The Economist Asia editor. The election was back in May on the 9th and mister Marcus attracted an enormous amount of support. He won 59% of the vote in a single drone election and his nearest rival only managed to muster 28% of the vote. That gives him the strongest electoral mandate of any president since his father Ferdinand Marcos, who, apart from winning elections, also imposed martial law and was a kleptocratic brutal dictator. So given his father's record, why do you think he was able to win this? And with such a clear majority. There are several reasons for that start with the sort of whitewashing of his father's reign. So for the past several years and especially in the run up to this election, the Marcus campaign has been running a social media campaign aimed at sort of rewriting history and painting his father's room as a golden era a time of prosperity and stability. Another reason is that the majority of the electorate is either too young to remember the dictatorship or had not been born yet. The third reason is that the Philippine schools curriculum does not much focus on the area of the dictatorship. So that's it, then it's just a matter of having us likely run social media campaign to smudge through history. That's a big part of it, but it's not all of it. An interesting thing is that DeMarcus legacy started to be reconsidered as early as a decade after the revolution. So by late 1995, which is less than ten years after he was deposed, people had already started changing their minds. I'll give you an example. In May 1986, which is a few months after the revolution, 41% of people surveyed by respected bolster thought that Ferdinand Marcos had been true to the duties of a patriotic president by October 95 that number had jumped to 57%. More striking yet in 86, 44% of people agreed that he was a severe brutal or oppressive president. And the same proportion disagreed. A decade later, just 38% agreed that he was a severe brutal or oppressive president and 60% disagreed. Confronted with these results, the polls tried to draw conclusions. They said, and I could. Not many of us would care to hold a grudge against someone long dead, not even someone like Ferdinand Marcos. But why do you think that was the case? That merely a decade later, people had begun to forget or at least not to mind. So the story goes back to 1991 when the Marcus family was allowed to return to the Philippines. In the dictator had died in an exile in 1989, the rest of the family was allowed to come back ostensibly to face charges of corruption. Instead, by 1992, imelda Marcos, that's Ferdinand's wife, had launched a presidential campaign. She lost in the end, but bong bong Marcus the son became congressman, and indeed for most of the next 30 years, he stayed in some position of the other, whether as a congressman or a governor or a senator. Other members of the family have been in various positions of power. So the process of rehabilitating the family name did not just start in the run up to this election and started ages needed to grow. It started 30 years ago. So now, at last, he's risen to the presidency. What do you think we can expect? The initial signs based on his appointments to the cabinet in nearly two months since he was elected. Fairly encouraging, actually. I mean, he seems so far, like he's shaping up to be a fairly middle of the road, standard president. His predecessor, Rodrigo Duterte, who's best known for his fall mouth and his drug wars, actually appointed a bunch of technocrats to run the economy. Appears to be doing the same. He's picked Benjamin jock no, who used to run the Central Bank to head his economic team, his defense chief as a former army general and chief of staff, his pick for transport used to be the base of the national airline. So those signs are fairly encouraging. And in fact, the business growth is delighted with the shape of the government so far. I should point out that his vice president is Sara Duterte, who is the daughter of the old queen president Rodrigo Duterte, and Rodrigo Duterte remains enormously popular. It's extremely popular as well. So there's a continuity here between these two administrations. And so no immediate reason to believe then that he has designs on grabbing the reins as firmly as his father did. Perhaps not grabbing the reins as firmly as his father did, but what is worrying is that there are already some signs of the space for criticism being constricted. That said, on June 23rd, the telecoms regulator clamped on the seal of big chunks of airtight by television and radio broadcasters. This is a fairly common practice in the Philippines. And those chunks are often used by political actors, so that's one example. Another is a prominent columnist whose no fan of bong bong was let go by her newspaper on the grounds that she sits on the board of rap load, which is a rabble rosing news website, but she sat on the board of rapper for ages and this was well known, including to her employers. A rapper for its part, on June 29th, again received an order from the country security and exchange commission to shut down for violating foreign ownership routes. So there are already worrying signs. And putting aside those concerns for the moment, what do you think it means for the Philippines today that mister Marcos should have become president? Much like France, the Philippines is on its 5th republic. This republic was founded after Marcus was deposed, and was founded in the basis of ideals of democracy and fairness and also to ensure that no markers like ever becomes president again. The very fact that Filipinos have chosen to elect the dictator's son suggests that the Philippines is entering a new era, there are others who argue that this new era started with the election of Rodrigo Duterte. So no matter which direction this presidency goes in, the one thing that is clear is that the era defined by the 1986 revolution has come to an end. Leo thanks very much for joining us. My pleasure, Jason. In 2014, Scotland held its first independence referendum, a triumph for the Scottish national party and its then leader Alex salmond. How are we going to vote? At the time, Nicola Sturgeon, who now leads the party, called it a once in a lifetime chance. We don't know that we'll ever get another opportunity to decide to become an independent country. It's the only guaranteed opportunity we will ever get. In the end, Scottish voters opted to stay in the union with the nays beating the yeas 55% to 45%. That might have put an end to.

"Around is this oil find. When ExxonMobil first struck oil off the coast of Guyana a few years ago, as they say in the industry, they hit a gusher. To date, they found over 10 billion barrels of recoverable reserves in guyanese waters. To put that into context, by the end of the decade, there will be producing more than a million barrels of oil per day. For Exxon alone, one in ten barrels of oil that they produce every day in 2030, they reckon they'll be coming from guyanese seas. To do that, within 12 years of your discovery is unprecedented. That was Alistair routledge, who is the president of ExxonMobil and Guyana. What he told me was that the speed at which this oil producer found oil and got production going, it's been pretty staggering. Even to go from the first discovery to first production and then less than 5 was absolutely outstanding. There was some risk taken to get there, but the government of the day were really keen to see early revenues to show that they could develop the economy. For the ordinary guyanese person, they have been hearing about this oil fine for quite a while now and a lot of them are looking around and saying, hey look, what has the impact been on the economy? So in some ways, especially when you're in the capital when you're in Georgetown, you feel like oil has boosted this economy. Some local workers, particularly in the capital, they're making a lot more money than before just driving taxis, working as waiters in the hotels, working on building sites to build fancy new apartments and villas for the expat workers showing up in Guyana. When I look at my employees back three years ago, a lot of them were wearing hand me down clothes. That's Sean hill who manages Guyana shore base, which is the logistics hub, the port that serves the offshore oil industry. And he taught me through how oil has brought prosperity to some people in the local economy. Like hot pot was empty. Now it is full of life trials that complaining because it's on a car parking space. You motorbikes outside, people turning up in brand new clothes to work every single day. So you can visibly see that what we're doing here is impacting their lives. On a macro scale, the data shows that this is happening. So the economy grew 20% last year. It grew 44% in 2020. Guyana was the fastest growing economy in the world during the pandemic. What you have is a government that is promising to channel all of these Petro dollars into development. They're saying they're going to use this money to build infrastructure roads, schools, hospitals, and you have quite a bit of excitement over there. Of course, there's a number of things that could go wrong. The guy in his people don't have to look far to see how oil can be a curse for an economy. To the west, they've got Venezuela. Their oil is bankrolled a corrupt socialist dictatorship. They've got Trinidad, nearby, where all exploration was great for a while, but it's also sort of led to crime and social unrest. So really, the big concern is, hey, are we going to have one big oil industry and the rest of the economy is going to be drained of resources, drained of qualified staff? Are we going to have this resource curse? Or are we going to be able to diversify? We consider it to be of the highest importance to ensure that we diversify the economy. Ashley Singh, Guyana's finance minister, who I also interviewed there, he talked a lot about economic diversification. I think we have the good fortune in that we do have a basis for real economic diversification. There is a very significant set of opportunities in gold production. We have the potential terrible two or three companies looking at developing large scale gold mines. That will be significant. Now you're right, mean oil is still going to be larger than even gold. But they will not be insignificant. Whatever mister Singh says, the data isn't that hopeful. By the government's own estimates, the guyanese economy as a whole will expand almost 50% this year. But if you take out oil, it's going to grow by less than 8%. Offshore oil is an incredibly specialized industry. So you only need a few maintenance staff, most of the work is done by machines. You're not going to be sourcing from local guyanese businesses because frankly there's only a handful of companies around the world that produce pipes and widgets that are up to scratch. One really big risk that could see this whole oil boom turns sour is corruption. Guyana is a country with massive ethnic divisions between groups of African and Indian descent. Their politics is very cleanly divided between those two groups. The last election a couple of years ago turned pretty ugly in part because these oil riches were up for grabs. Cronyism is rife. A local businessman will all say it's not possible to win a big deal or a big job in the oil industry unless you've got pals and high places. Outside of Georgetown and inside of Georgetown, it feels like a whole different world. When I left the capital and I went over to the agricultural land in the pomeron, I went to a big coconut plantation you can see people there who were really skeptical about how the oil boom was ever going to benefit them. The name is Gary Goodman. I'm 55 years old and I've actually 49 years now. When you're in Georgetown, everyone says to me, oh, these big hotels coming. Here's this guy. He's got a contract for oil. I'm not excited about the vehicles. I'm not excited about the big roadways. I'm not excited because the person to spend him on either hotel is only a certain class that people could go there. They might not walk into the government can go dear. The private sector, some could go some can't. What is the big excitement about it? The truth is, it's a pretty funny time to become a Petro state. On one hand, the invasion of Ukraine, the war does mean that energy prices have had an incredible boom of late, but in the slightly more medium to long term, we're in a world where everyone is trying to cut down their usage of fossil fuels. As one analyst said to me, in the Guyana, the oil revenues are going to come fast. They're going to come hard and they're not going to come long. So it's not going to take very long for us to find out whether.

"Welcome to the cybersecurity weekly podcast I'm Jane Lew podcasting from Singapore today. And today we are very privileged to have the gay Jane Perez, who is the deputy director general at the Philippine space agency, and she's also the associate professor and scientist at the institute of environmental science and meteorology at the university of the Philippines. And she is also the first Filipino to win the Asian U.S. science prize for women in 2018. So it's a great privilege to have her with us today to share with us the latest developments like the Philippines, its space agency, and some of the highlights that she presented at the panel discussion at the global space and technology conference in Singapore today. So thank you so much, doctor Perez for joining us in the podcast today. Hi gene, hello. It's a pleasure to be here. Yes, so I understand that the Philippine space agency is attached agency of the office of the president has to handle national issues and activities related to space science and technology. And it was long, I believe a little bit more than two years ago. So could you share with us with our listeners on some of the thoughts behind the launch of the agency tell us a bit about the mission and also the objectives of the Philippine space agency? Thank you, Jane. So two years ago, precisely on August 8th, 2019. The country enacted a landmark legislation. We now call the republic act 11 360 three or the Philippine space act. The law that created the Philippine space agency or fail cell. Now the passage of the Philippine space act signifies the country's formal recognition of the increasing strategic importance of space and its peaceful uses for the benefit of Filipinos and the world. The law provides a framework for the Philippine space policy. That will enable the country to become a truly space capable and space very nation. Now to realize this goals, the Philippine space act, mandate the creation of the Philippine space agency, which now serves as the central government agency, addressing all national issues and activities related to speech. Aims to promote a sustain and sustain a robust Philippine space ecosystem that adds a great value in space for and from Filipinos and for the world. Focusing on several key development areas such as national security and development, space research and development hazard management and climate studies, space education and awareness, space education capacity building and international cooperation. Doctor Perez, you touch on a key development area, which is a hazard management and climate studies. And I think it's interesting because when it comes to space technology, I think for many of us, right? We immediately think about images of rockets, astronauts, telescopes to view the frontiers, our solar system or galaxy. But it's also really the space technologies also a means to view the lands and also the oceans below on earth from above..

"No one can rescue and no one can go to where the violence is taking place. The United Nations earlier warned that domestic violence is a global shadow pandemic as COVID-19 rages an estimated 245 million women and girls aged 15 and up have been subjected to physical or sexual violence in the past year. A new law to end sexual abuse. Against this backdrop, proponents of greater protection for children prevailed, activists, celebrities, and international organizations lobbied hard for an amendment to the age of consent, which passed its first hurdle in the Senate on December 15th after getting approval from the House of Representatives. It now awaits Duterte's signature. How successfully the new law will be implemented is another matter, however. Any law that we may pass, especially to protect our children, is only as good as it can be enforced. Warren senator onta veros. There lies the problem. The Philippine justice system is notorious for being slow with too few courts and too many cases which can take years even decades to come to trial. The backlog has worsened dramatically as a result of the pandemic and Duterte's brutal war on drugs. A report from the U.S. department of states anti trafficking office further found that the Philippines lacked personnel trained in the handling of evidence and had too few prosecutors. A Manuel drury a social worker for people's recovery and development assistance, which is a foundation based in Alan gabo city, says government hotlines to report abuse or frequently unmanned, and victims are often just passed around between offices. It's all bureaucracy and they're lucky if they'll get the help they need. He tells time. For now, there is a real danger that the experience of aku pin pin the advocacy officer who was herself abused as a child will remain typical for many. Months after her stepfather abused her, she was able to file a complaint with her teachers help, and there were multiple hearings, but these were hugely stressful events that required her to recount details to prove that she did not give consent. Two years after the abuse took place when she turned 9, she decided, quote, for my own safety and because I kept seeing my stepfather in court that the judicial process was simply too much to bear. She had to dismiss her complaint aku pinpin says to obtain the peace that I really wanted..

"The Philippines is raising the age of consent that may not be enough to protect its children. By Chad de Guzman. In September 2020, the Supreme Court of the Philippines acquitted a man of child sexual abuse charges after he impregnated a 12 year old girl. The incident took place in 2012 when the man was 27. He was sentenced to more than 14 years in jail by a lower court in 2016, but appealed. The defendant argued that the sexual relationship was consensual since the girl bore him not just one, but two children before he was sentenced. The country's top justices ruled in his favor, saying that the court was not prepared to punish two individuals and deprive their children from having a normal family life simply because the girl was a minor at the time. The court also ruled that the benefits of living in a nuclear family outweighed any perceived dangers from the relationship. The persistence of such attitudes at the highest levels of the Philippine establishment is the result of a culture in which the sexual abuse of children is tragically common. Around one in 5 children in the country fall victim to sexual violence. That, in turn is a factor of the country's age of consent, which, for the past 90 years, has been 12. The lowest in Asia and one of the lowest in the world. For decades, predatory adults in the Philippines have had a green light to exploit the inability of children to.

"The Japanese followed up the bombing with amphibious landings. Due to the resilience of the U.S. Military forces and the Philippine resistance fighters, as well as some tactical errors by the Japanese military, the Philippines campaign lasted from December 8th, 1941, all the way to May 8th, 1942. Several months longer than the Japanese expected. The U.S. forces were treated several times south in a leapfrogging manner to provide support and allow half their numbers to retreat and build defenses. They retreated to bataan, where the battle of bataan followed. But the U.S. forces were overrun again and needed a retreat to corregidor island where general rain Wright, the U.S. forces, and the Filipino forces were treated. The loss in the Philippines to the Japanese empire is considered the worst military defeat in U.S. history, with about 23,000 American military personnel, and 100,000 Filipino soldiers killed or captured. Again, we're going to go more in depth on the history of the Philippines at a later date, but just know the Japanese with their surprise attacks and follow-up offensive forces controlled the Philippines for about three years until the Japanese surrendered in 1945. But if it weren't for the Filipino soldiers and resistance fighters, including guerrilla forces, the Philippine scouts and various militia, the Japanese military would have been better able to focus their attention to other parts of Asia and fighting the U.S.. The people of the Philippines were instrumental in World War II. There's a great book called Philippines resistance, the last allied stronghold in the Pacific by Stacey Ann battery in a Salinas and cle de Shu, will be sure to link to it in our show notes. You can also go back and listen to episode 57 where we take time to talk about the congressional gold medal that was awarded to the Filipino military veterans. So this December 7th and 8th, we hope you take time to remember Pearl Harbor, as well as wake island Guam and the Philippines, the often forgotten U.S..

"The closest inhabited island is Utrecht atoll in the Marshall Islands at a little under 600 miles to the southeast. The U.S. took possession of wake island in 1899, which coincided with the U.S. colonial expansion that included the annexation of Hawaii and the acquisition of Guam and the Philippines after the Spanish-American War in 1898. Wake island is about halfway between Honolulu and Manila. So it made sense as a location for refueling ships and creating an airstrip for planes. Fun fact, Pan American airways also known as Pan Am, chose wake island as a stopping point for the trans Pacific flights between the U.S. and China. So after getting the U.S. Navy's permission, they constructed the flying clippers base on wake island in May 1935. The U.S. Navy began construction of a military base there in January 1941, and on August 19th, 1941, the first permanent military garrison was stationed on wake island. They were made up of the first marine defense battalion and were under the command of major PS devereaux. In total, there were about 449 officers and enlisted personnel. There were also 68 other U.S. naval personnel and over 1200 civilian workers. Most of the civilians were construction workers employed by Morrison knudsen, a civil engineering company. There were also about 45 chamorro men employed by Pan Am at their company's facilities on wake island. A few hours after hearing about the Attack on Pearl Harbor, 36 Japanese Mitsubishi bombers flew from their bases on the Marshall Islands and attacked wake island on December 8th. The goal was to establish air dominance so the Imperial Japanese bombers destroyed 8 of the 12 planes at the airfield. Fun fact, these were F four F three wildcats. The Japanese also sank the nisqually a converted scow that was in the bay. If you're wondering where the other four U.S. wildcats were, they were in the air on patrol, trying to find the Japanese, but due to poor visibility didn't see the Japanese bombers. After the attack, the panem employees were evacuated as well as any passengers who happened to be there. The chamorro workers weren't allowed to board the plane to escape, so they were left behind. The Japanese followed up the initial bombing with an attempt to land and take over wake on December 11th. The four wildcats, U.S. Marines, and any civilian volunteers who were willing to fight, were able to mount a defense under major devereaux command, and they repelled this first attempt in all the Japanese lost two destroyers and had 407 casualties in this first attempt. There were frequent Japanese air raids and no additional troop deployments or supplies. So the second invasion force was more effective for the Japanese on December 23rd..

You know hanging out on a beat to try and pick you up then rescue. There's cops probably studied power if they have the cia. It's much more strategic than yep i. Let's talk about attitudes to quiz in the philippines before i start making a poorly educated comments about kalari. I read our variety of surveys about attitudes towards in cleveland the philippines to try and get a feeling if this claim that the philippines is a really queer. Friendly country is true Because some people are saying the philippines is absolutely queer friendly anyone can be created. It's fine and then there are bunch of this isn't really true. This isn't what the situation actually is in daily life for acquitted person so i tried to find some statistics. The statistics were somewhat contradictory. But i'll tell you. I didn't have time to look into the details of for example. Who did all the surveys. What exactly the questions. They asked who are in everything But for example one hundred fifteen study found that eighty five percent of filipinos disagreed with the statement. That same sex marriage should be recognized but then twenty seventeen poll found that sixty three percent of people believe same sex attractive. Paypal's enjoy the same rights but straight people and that same twenty seventeen poll found that seventy two percent of people believe trans people should enjoy the same rights that six people so that twenty seventeen paul teams quite positive. The twenty fifth pole nelson the twenty fifteen. Paul not so much on the is a two years apart. But i think that's representative all value change over time. There are bumps trauma statistics from around the same time. That kind of went away as well. Yeah i guess there is a bit of a difference there like obviously the difference there in freising. Yeah this is about a specific legal change. he added one of this about like sort of generally. Do you think gay people should have rights. I think that definitely is a factor that one question is a really concrete thing in once quite abstract. So i want also that i read quite a lot of. He's written a lot about philippine quick culture. Nael garcia described the philippines as being a tolerant country queer people and explains that he meant the tolerate quip people accept them and he gave the example of the fact that a family might be tolerant of having a queer acquaintance and united habitat them over to dinner or whatever but if one of the children came out that would be a completely different matter and they would not accept that and i think that kinda is the same thing when it's a kind of abstract concept this person where you don't really have to interact with queen cycles. People might be fine with that but when it's in your own life and something concrete people uncomfortable with another statement. That often comes up when talking about how the philippines on unaccept- in country is that there aren't nar laws against homosexuality in the philippines. That is true so fis that isn't illegal to be gay or to have gay sex in the philippines. Since the philippines became independent. I believe in the forties that has been true however that doesn't mean that quick people have equal legal rights.

So yes i think he will continue to be a political force even after his journeys over even if he's not in public office what could that mean for the country. Well this really to me. The this election is an inflection. Point on wall on the strength of strongman rule whether there is a an exception or weather were in for another twenty or thirty years of authoritarianism in the philippines. We've been recycled before. So we'll have to see indefinitely. The strength of ab- civil society has been much weaker detects strong president the use of the information space. You know the change information landscape particularly online social media to bolster its power has been unprecedented. The the the liberal opposition and human rights groups and civil society. Don't quite know how to respond to that yet. But we'll we'll have to see. I think this is why. I think this is a very important election. A lot of the money is going to some sort of continuation of having a local boss in power somebody. More into strongman strong woman mood but philippine elections have always had uncertain outcomes of filipinos have tended in the past thirty years vote for somewhat the opposite of the previous president. So we'll have to see the landscape hasn't settled down yet and we may be in for surprise but i think.

"In one thousand nine hundred ninety five. A college student disappeared on a trip across the usa. Portia missing right away but they went. Take it so. His mother started investigating the case file. I started going through in some people that wasn't interviewed. I joined this mother. Search for justice or you recording us i am. Yeah someone knows something season six available now now. He now has less than a year in office. Left and i want to talk about the most controversial and dominant part of his legacy. And that's the drug war in the philippines he was elected largely on this promise of eradicating drug crime but the ways approached it has been called basically state-sponsored murder by human rights groups. What do we know about the death. Toll the death toll is very controversial. The philippine drug enforcement authority said late last year. That the death toll was close to eight thousand people killed as part of the antidrug campaign but human rights groups say the toll could be three times maybe four times more. I myself did an investigation based on three different places in manila and actually went street. The street asking people how many had been killed in relation to drug y talked to local officials. I talked to the police. And then we did a statistical analysis and we found that the death toll in those places actually three times more. And what kind of behavior has a government sanctioned here like. they're engaging see themselves as engaging this big drug war what kind of behaviors have been sanctioned as part of that data has actually told the police in. Do you have to shoot them if if you had to. I will protect you. That's what tetteh campaigned. On urging police and even ordinary civilians to go after drug dealers and other criminals not go out and hunt them. He said if they resist kill them all will be bloody so the police mostly has excused the killings as a self defense that they were doing sting operations on small-time drug dealers in this drug dealers fought back and so they killed them. That actually accounts for a minority of the killings the vast majority of the killings or by motorcycle riding assassins armed with a thirty eight or forty five caliber pistols who should suspected drug dealers in homes in video gaming parlours in in places where they believed to be to be selling so those account for for the for the bulk of the killings. Police say these are mainly the work of drug gangs but there have been some cases where it was found that they were actually off-duty policeman or hired assassins on the payroll of the police. Needless to say you know the idea of extrajudicial killings of onsite of suspected. Drug criminals does not cohere with most notions of democracy. Has details actually curbed the illegal drug trade in the philippines. It's very difficult to say. They've been a number of big time drug dealers who've been killed but the reality is that on the ground at least in the communities. I've been following. They say the drug trade is still there. But it's much more clandestine you know. In the past they would. You could buy them off the streets now. it's much more. It's much more secret but drug dealing hasn't really stopped. It's interesting because.
