In the Bible, Jesus cites the tax collector as a sinner because he bled the poor. Today, SSS is the biblical tax collector out to bleed OFWs. Why is the SSS a symbol of greed and evil? SSS earlier proposed to Duterte an increase of Php1,000 or 1.5% per each of its 33 million pensioners, yielding tens of billions of pesos. Not satisfied, SSS now wants OFWs to pay SSS, yielding a staggering Php7 billion a month, on top of OFW payments to OWWA and DOLE. This is a form of immoral ‘multiple-taxation’ which feed corruptions. SSS says they are running out of funds, when its Board gave itself bonuses of up to Php10 million during Nonoy’s reign. Media has alleged SSS funds manipulated in the past, for elections and for questionable projects. Why should we induce corruption? We ask President Duterte not to approve this evil greedy immoral plan, and leave the OFWs alone to improve their lives.

ABOLISH OR REFORM THE SSS – the corruption syndrome

 

When something good has been infected and perverted by corruption, what do we do? We have a dilemma. Option 1 is to abolish the system itself, but you may also remove the benefit to the people at the bottom. Option 2 is to replace the people on top, but there is no guarantee the next batch will not do the same. Option 3 is to reform the system. But what if it is beyond reform? What if the government pretends to reform for PR sake, but secretly does not? In other words, IF WE LET THE CORRUPT SOLVE THE CORRUPTION, NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.
 
The Corruption Syndrome is like cancer. Chemotherapy (catch the thieves) destroys cancer cells (the corruption), but it also destroys good cells (people at the bottom) and it weakens the immunity system, which results in stronger cancer cells later. You solve the immediate only to worsen it later. Many doctors no longer believe in chemo. Others believe in it for the money. The Corruption Syndrome is the dilemma, the helplessness to correct something bad, the helplessness to cure the incurable.

 

Case No. 1. SSS – the milking cow.
The COA reports that 8 members of the SSS board received a scandalous P1 million in bonuses, and its employees a staggering P276 million. Yet, they have the gall, and they feel no shame, in justifying this obvious scandal and greed.

 

BONUSES ARE BASED NOT ON PERFORMANCE BUT ON INCOME. PRESIDENT AQUINO, WHO VOWED TO STOP CORRUPTION, SUPPORTED AND JUSTIFIED THE BONUSES. A CRIME AGAINST THE PEOPLE IS IMPEACHABLE.
 
If the money coming in is decreasing because you are not doing your job, you do not have the right to give yourself a bonus. The COA reported ‘performance issues’ in SSS in its 2012 audit report, meaning, they are not doing their job well. The Governance Commission for Government-owned or -controlled Corporations (GCG) reported that the SSS is doing its job well, contrary to the SSS report. The COA is more believable. Are SSS and GCG sweethearts?

 

Reps. Neri Colmenares and Carlos Isagani Zarate are asking the House Committee on Good Governance to investigate the grant of Performance-Based Bonus to SSS officials and employees. They accused the SSS board of refusing to increase pensions under House Bill 175, which the SSS rejected.

 

THIS IS TANTAMOUNT TO STEALING THE BENEFITS FROM ORDINARY PEOPLE, AND POCKETING THEM AS BONUSES. THERE HAVE BEEN PAST MEDIA REPORTS OF SSS FUNDS BEING USED FOR ELECTION CAMPAIGN, AND OTHER ANOMALIES. SSS IS THE PREMIERE MILKING COW. MANY PREFER A SIMPLE REFORM – MAKE SSS CONTRIBUTIONS OPTIONAL, NOT OBLIGATORY. AFTER ALL, THE WORKER HAS THE MORAL RIGHT TO HIS OWN MONEY.
 
Should we abolish the SSS, replace the greedy board, or change the bonus system? If we abolish, what happens to the beneficiaries? If we do not, are we condoning corruption? If we replace the board, will the new one not do the same? If we change the system, will it work?

 

THE CORRUPTION SYNDROME SAYS WE ARE STUCK. ‘DAM’ IF WE DO, AND ‘DAM’ IF WE DON’T.

 

Case No. 2 – the PDAP-DAP, the milking super-cow.
There is not much to say. Everybody has said it. It is oozing out of the front pages and the Internet. Everybody is angry. The Corruption Syndrome applies. Is there a final solution to the PDAP-DAP corruption? Will catching the thieves guarantee it will not be renamed into a chicken barrel and again quietly perpetrate itself?

 

Corrupt lawmakers make corrupt laws. Our hope lies in good lawmakers. Do we have some? When corruption reaches critical mass in government, only anarchy and revolution can solve the problem. Can our anger solve the greed of powerful men? Greed is the mother of corruption. And power makes it unstoppable. eastwindreplyctr@gmail.com

AMERICA – STOP WAGING WARS
U.S. WARS RELATED TO FED GOV’T SHUTDOWN
The US is spending money for bullets to kill foreigners,
money meant for bread and medicine for its own people.
 
The US spent $6 trillion in the Iraq War. It is spending billions a month to maintain thousands of bases abroad and half a dozen mobile carrier fleets, on top of trillions on a frenzied weapons R&D program. At the end of World War II, its overseas bases exploded from 30 to 3,000. The end of the federal government shutdown is the tip of the iceberg, a temporary solution. The big tsunami is yet to coming, if America does not stop waging wars.
It’s more than economics. It’s karma.

Our Lady of Fatima established her presence during Yolanda, the so-called millennium storm, in two ways. First was the many miracles of people and places mysteriously saved from the storm, as described below. Second, Pope Francis dispatched a life-size statue of Our Lady of Fatima to the disaster area in response to an earlier deadly earthquake in Cebu and Bohol, where dozens of ancient churches were razed to the ground (read vol. 3).

During and after Yolanda, a handful of brothers walked from village to village through the mud and debris for 3 days, bearing the Papal statue, until they finally reached the doorstep of the residence of Archbishop John Du in Tacloban, the scene of thousands killed by a series of powerful storm surges that went three kilometers inland.

The above photo of the Blue Lady went viral in the Internet after 3 days. Yolanda fulfilled the prophecies of Our Lady of Fatima of future global cataclysms. The messages were both of salvation and of punishment.

Towns Mysteriously Saved from Yolanda.

Mysteriously, some villages had little or no casualties, while neighboring ones a few kilometers away were completely devastated. In Punta Maria, in Borangan Bay, long before Yolanda came, seven elderly women prayed the rosary every day in a makeshift chapel. It was in the direct path of Yolanda, yet there were no casualties and storm surge, although a few houses near shore were destroyed by the wind. The same case happened in Ando Island in Borongan Bay, where women had an active rosary brigade.

The remote coastal village of Sulangan, Eastern Samar, is a pilgrim center for devotees to St. Anthony of Padua. In June, about 10,000 pilgrims converge every year from as far as Cebu, Bohol, Antique, and Bicol to the church, which is noted for miraculous healings of the sick. Also on the direct path of Yolanda, Sulangan had only three casualties, three senior citizens who refused to seek refuge in the church. In nearby towns, including Guiuan, thousands died from the storm surge. Almost all of the roofs of houses in Sulangan were destroyed but precious lives were saved. Samareños attribute the safety of Sulangan and Borongan from Yolanda to devotion to the Blessed Virgin and Saint Anthony. In the capital Tacloban, tens of thousands died, the odor of corpses mixed with street debris lingered for months.

Typhoon Yolanda’s Path

 

In Borongan, a student, a housewife and a teacher, who had a common story, were interviewed by the author. At the height of Yolanda, they saw a Lady near shore (just like the above photo) as a storm surge was approaching. The student even ran towards the Lady to warn her of the oncoming storm surge. As in the viral photo above, both the Lady and the storm surge vanished. There are many more undocumented stories of how the Lord spared those devout to Him and Our Lady.

The message of Yolanda is the same as that of Fatima, Sodom and Gomorrah, Noah with his ark, and of the entire Old Testament – return to the Lord and receive His mercy, abandon Him and receive His wrath. The Lord of Mercy is the Lord of Wrath. eastwindreplyctr@gmail.com

NOVENA TO OUR LADY OF FATIMA. Simply say a Hail Mary every day for 9 days for the forgiveness of the sins, reparation for sins, conversion of sinners, and the prevention of future disasters. The Lord can change His mind in sending cataclysms if we pray. End the prayer by being aware of Jesus beside you, and saying “Jesus” seven times. Please pass to friends.

THE WOMAN AND THE DRAGON * Vol.1- 100-Year Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima SERIES

THE WOMAN AND THE DRAGON
 
behold the Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son
and they shall name Him Emmanuel
which means ‘God is with us’
 
Matthew 1:23
 
a great sign appeared in the sky
a woman clothed with the sun
the moon beneath her feet
and on her head a crown of twelve stars
 
she was with Child, wailing in birth pains
another sign appeared in the sky
a huge red dragon
with seven heads and ten horns
 
the dragon stood before the woman
about to give birth, to devour her Child
she gave birth to a Son
destined to rule all nations
 
in utter rage the serpent
waged war against the rest of her offspring
those bearing witness
to the Son born of her womb
 
Revelation 11:1-17, excerpts
 
The battle between the dragon (Satan) and the woman (Virgin Mary) would rage throughout the millennia after Christ died to save the world from sin. This longest battle on Earth is manifested today in Our Lady of Fatima, whose messages echo the Book of Revelation – prophecies of global cataclysms. In the end, Revelation says the woman shall triumph and crush the head of the serpent (Satan) at her feet. Fatima is the mother of all disaster predictions. Our Lady has sent us chilling apocalyptic messages we have to meditate and pray over.
 
Many of the Fatima disaster predictions have been fulfilled, the Spanish Civil War, World Wars I and II, the modern plagues such SARS and ZIKA, etc. One message speaks of a time when Man would have the power to destroy himself and the world. Fatima messages (not the interpretations) have Vatican approval and have extensive documentation in the Vatican website.
 
La guerre au Moyen Orient va devenir grave ET s’étendre au reste du monde.
“The war in the Middle East will become serious and will spread throughout the world.” Message from Our Lady of Yvan.
 
The controversial Third Secret, predicting massive global disasters, was revealed to visionary Sister Lucia. In fear of sowing panic, many Popes would decide not to reveal it. After 6 long decades from October 17, 1917, when Our Lady first appeared to three peasant children, and 5 decades from October 30, 1930, when the Church proclaimed Fatima’s “miracle of the dancing sun” as authentic, Pope John Paul II (1978 to 2005) finally revealed the Third Secret, which predicted his failed assassination. The bullet resides today on the crown of the original statue of Our Lady of Fatima in the Vatican.
 
A Daughters-of-St.-Paul nun went into a sudden trance at the home of visionary Carmelo Cortez, and said, her voice changing, “I can no longer hold back the hand of my Son. Pray, pray, pray.”

THE “MIRACLE OF THE HEALING OIL” IN 2009 ECHOES THE MESSAGES OF THE THIRD SECRET.
The mysterious appearance of oil on the floor of the Adoration Chapel of the Mother Ignacia Healing Ministry was followed by major global disasters. It was also followed by instant healings of terminal patients. The God of Wrath is also the God of Mercy.
