"Who Is He To Confront Me?" - Philippines President Unloads On "Son Of A Bitch" Barack Obama

Tyler Durden's picture

What was an embarrassing weekend for president Barack Obama, whose arrival at the G-20 summit in China was a case study in diplomatic humiliation, just turned even worse when on Monday, Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte warned the US president not to question him about extrajudicial killings, or "son of a bitch I will swear at you" when the two presidents meet at a summit in Laos in the coming days.

The topic of Duterte's killing spree, supposedly involving mostly criminals and drug-traffickers, without due process has raised eyebrows most recently by the United Nations, which urged the Philippines to stop executing and killing people linked to drug business and threatened that “state actors” could be punished. As a result, two weeks ago Duterte lashed out at the UN and threatened that the country could leave the UN. "Maybe we'll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations. If you're that rude, son of a bitch, we'll just leave you," Duterte told reporters in Davao, quoted by Bloomberg. “I don't give a shit about them,” he added. “They are the ones interfering. You do not just go out and give a shitting statement against a country.”


Fast forward to today when the outspoken president lobbed a preemptive warning at Obama, and before flying to Laos where the two heads of state are set to meet, said that he is a leader of a sovereign country and is answerable only to the Filipino people. He was answering a reporter's question about how he intends to explain the extrajudicial killings to Obama. More than 2,000 suspected drug pushers and users have been killed since Duterte launched a war on drugs after taking office on June 30.

In his typical foul-mouthed style, Duterte was quoted by AP as responding: "Who does he think he is?  I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Son of a bitch I will swear at you in that forum," he said.

Duterte went on to blame the US for causing the unrest on the southern Philippines Island of Mindanao. "As a matter of fact, we inherited this problem from the United States," he said. "Why? Because they invaded this country and made us their subjugated people. Everybody has a terrible record of extra-judicial killing. Why make an issue about fighting crime?" He added: "Look at the human rights of America along that line. The way they treat the migrants there."

Duterte has earlier cursed the pope and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Aware of the firestorm his question would provoke from his less than diplomatic peer, it wasn't clear whether Obama plans to raise the issue of extrajudicial killings with Duterte during a meeting on the sidelines of the summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

"Who is he to confront me?" Duterte said, adding that the Philippines had not received an apology for misdeeds committed during the U.S. colonization of the Philippines. He pointed to the killing of Muslim Moros more than a century ago during a U.S. pacification campaign in the southern Philippines, blaming the wounds of the past as "the reason why (the south) continues to boil" with separatist insurgencies. Duterte then once again pointed to human rights problems in the United States.

Last week, Duterte said he was ready to defend his bloody crackdown on illegal drugs, which has sparked concern from the U.S. and other countries. The president also said he would demand that Obama allow him to first explain the context of his crackdown before engaging the U.S. president in a discussion of the deaths.

In response, Obama suggested Monday his planned meeting with Duterte may not go forward. "I always want to make sure if I'm having a meeting that it's productive and we're getting something done," Obama said during his news conference.

"If and when we have a meeting, this is something that is going to be brought up," Obama said, referring to the Philippines' controversial record of combating drug crime since Duterte took office earlier this year.

Obama has been attending a meeting of the Group of 20 nations in Hangzhou, China, where his infamous snub by China made global headlines over the weekend. It appears he may have hed enough snubs for one trip.

Tell Obomba. and the tens of thousands of women and children.....

Obummer's a disaster. I am in no way trying to defend Obummer or DC/Wall St. policy, but extra judicial killings are wrong. I know. I have lived thru one of these things in a different country. All kinds of people get killed for all kinds of petty and personal reasons, like jealousy or old feuds or quotas. In one case, a family was showing "unusual" wealth. The parents were executed. Then it was discovered that they had just won the lottery. Everyone deserves their day in court. The rule of law should not be casually tossed away.

So I guess Trump was right again when he said that other countries are laughing at us and don't respect the Usurper Hussein Obama, the faggot metrosexual part negro.

Someone needs to ask Trump how he would react to this guy calling him a shithead if he becomes president. Those two alone have the potential to provide comic relief for years.

Trump:  "He wouldn't have called me a 'shithead' because I wouldn't have been one like Obama has been.  i wouldn't sprinkle stupid irritating comments around the globe offending world leaders who are trying to do the right thing for their own country when it has absolutely nothing to do with America"

Dimwits, usefull idiots, guilty whites, over educated assholes, government employees, leftists, and statists put this nitwit in office. Literally, no history or achievements, other than couple lame ass books, the right skin color, coupled with the ability too speak without needing an interpreter.

Basically... " he's black, and he speaks Sooo well!" , was the bar he had to clear. How so many in this country thought that was the answer?

And, by the looks of the landscape politically, they are ready to double down.

Jesus H. Christ. How does this end?

Ann Dunham was the daughter of a CIA man and a Ford Foundation tool herself, who had an affair with sex addict Black Marxist agitator in Hawaii Frank Marshall Davis, the true father of Barry. Dunham's premature death served the needs of many. cf. Dreams of My Real Father by Joel Gilbert.

Wiki....Thimah Geithner..




"...... During the early 1980s, Geithner's father oversaw the Ford Foundation's microfinance programs in Indonesia being developed by Ann Dunham Soetoro, Barack Obama's mother, and they met at least once.[6] Geithner's paternal .."

HamFistedIdiot's picture

And was related to Timothy Geithner. I am sure this is just a coincidence.

"Geithner was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Peter Franz Geithner and his wife Deborah Moore. His father, a German American, was the director of the Asia program at the Ford Foundation in New York in the 1990s, after working for the United States Agency for International Development in Zambia and Zimbabwe.[5] During the early 1980s, Geithner's father oversaw the Ford Foundation's microfinance programs in Indonesia being developed by Ann Dunham Soetoro, Barack Obama's mother, and they met at least once.[6] Geithner's paternal grandfather, Paul Herman Geithner (1902–1972), immigrated with his parents to the United States in 1908 from Zeulenroda.[7]"

I had a girlfriend in college who went on to work for USAID. By 18 she had had 20 sexual partners. Very smart girl, but a sociopath, a perfect fit for US philanthropic work.

I'd have to take issue with one niggling detail; his ability to "wow!" leftists with his ability to speak is dependent on him having a working TelePrompTer.

Without one he cannot put 3 words together and sounds remarkedly pathetic. Find some videos of this mulatto miracle mumbling and repeatedly "um, um" and "oh ah" stumbling along. It's pretty funny, if you've already accepted the end of Empire.

The magical boon of the TelePrompTer is the only thing that allows him to look like he's got an IQ above 90.

You forgot the oligarchs at the Rockefeller/CFR, including Obama's billionaire backers Penny Pritzker and Lester Crown of Chicago. Also Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, David Rubenstein, Laurence Fink, Lloyd Blankfein, Lynn Forester de Rothschild and David Rockefeller. The Clintons and Obamas are the "useful idiots". See member lists at cfr dot org.

Don't worry, it doesn't "end". Just more hostile takeovers and consolidation on the way to a techno-feudalist world dictatorship under the banner of "socialism" and "sustainable development".

Duterte has had a hate on for the u.s. government ever since a cia goon accidently blew his own legs off while assembling a bomb in a downtown Davao hotel room about 17 years ago, then was kidnapped from the hospital by u.s. forces and flown back to the u.s., never to be seen or heard from again.

I like him, his style is pretty good.

Drugs aint all bad though. Extrajudicial killing of bankers? That I could get onboard with.

But you know its getting rough for the USA when even the president of a little nation like this is taking the piss out of them.

Obama talked about getting America respected again after George Bush where all the liberals fretted night and day at how others thought of them, but now after 8 years we see the result, its a total car crash.

George Bush reminds me of that Churchill quote "You have enemies, good, that means you have stood for something", while I was no fan of him he didn't go around like Obama.  From coming over to the UK and trying to brow beat us into submission over the EU to his holyier than thou preaching to others the man is a walking disaster, he just cannot shut up and mind his own business.

The lecturing, finger-wagging, puppet president that speaks of “okie-doke” when his teleprompter breaks, inspires no respect and no fear around the world.

Want to quickly end the drug trade and "the war on drugs"???


Duterte is onto something here.

Yeah. Mindless killing by the police of anyone they dont like. Great idea. Doesn't seem to work in America though.

In less than 5 months, Obama moves on with his life (lucrative book deals and speaking engagements, golf, golf, and more golf).  America will have to bare his pathetic legacy for years to come.  I just pray that Hillary does not get to pick up where he leaves off.  No matter who the baton gets passed to (Hillary or Trump) the world is being staged for WAR ... and I don't see how it can be avoided.  There is time to get as ready as one can be ... don't let it pass you by.

imo he was too respectful of owebomba's feelings.

Obama and Hillary have no respect around the world because of sloppy corruption that can't be refuted because of constant security breaches.

Aussiekiwi's picture

His problem is that he has been far to direct, if he had armed terrorist groups, re labelled them moderates and sent them after the drug users he would have been fine, or perhaps purchased a drone program from the land of the free. Worst case scenario he might have had to 'donate' a couple of million to the Clinton Foundation for young woman in the 21st century, like Saudi Arabia did, that bastion of equality between the sexes.

no shit. it isn't complicated people. if you want to dance you have to pay the fiddler.

Good point.  The killings would then be reported as just more drug crime.  But other perps would not be sent the proper message.

re "Who is he to confront me?" Duterte said


Indeed. Who IS Obongo - The Planet's Premier 'Peace Prize' War-Monger - to confront ANYONE on "extra-judicial killing"?

HowardBeale's picture

Obama just fears someone will break his record...

Of course, Duterte would have to cast his morals aside and begin killing absolutely innocent woman and children to have a chance.

Relax Obama!

I thought Barry was the king of extra judicial killings?

Our Chimp and Chief must have been jealous.

Now he'll be all butt hurt and dissed on the world stage too.

"Ijo de puta!" is a standard greeting of dismay in Latin America, I believe. So, no biggie.

Even if she was a puta, as long as she washed some extremity of a clerical VIP (on a regular basis) and used her hair to dry it, she's forgiven of all her misdeeds and sheeple will write nice things about her.

History is written and taught by the winners, not losers.

That would be a great comment, except The Philippines are not in Latin America. The country (an island) is off the coast of Vietnam, in the Pacific.
