"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.

    I like it that he stands up to obama with his tough guy act. It would make an interesting death cage match but of course pols never get physical, they have surrogates for that. Just talk though. I'd be a lot more impressed if Vlad or Xi threatened to kick his balls out of the box the wookie stores them in.

I don't know about that. I think Duarte is the kind of guy that would be glad to throw down. Barry? Not so much.

Hillarys Server's picture

It's convenient, though.

When a government has a motion they'd like to reject, they just have to invite Obama to visit the country in support of it.

Imagine, for a moment, if they did this in every country for a year.

Imagine what a different place the world would be then.

I wonder what he would say to Justin Turdeau? This Duarte dude is a breath of fresh air.

litemine's picture

In what context are you refering sir?

Justin only fought a battle in the ring, he hasn't droned or killed anyone. Yet.

Lyman54's picture

I wasn't refering to the boxing match, rather Trudeau's incination to lecture other countries about fiscal policies, gay rights, gun control, nationalism, climate change and any other feel good SJW cause he can dream up.  Trudeau is the idiot now railing against anyone opposed to a world goverrnment or globalization.


When asked what country he admired most his reply was communist China because they didn't have to worry about opposition from any political parties.  Now he wants to change the electoral system to ensure the leftards are allways in power.

If Duterte had brought up the Drone massacres the USA carries out I might have been more sympathetic but he didn't mention this crime, although the USA Government did subjugate the Philipines at one time, and really doesn't have the moral authority to condemn Philipines. But I still don't agree with massacring people who are involved in Drugs without proper Trials. I see more and more Americans are cheering on that Police-state mentality.

SirBarksAlot's picture

Americans are cheering it because heroin use here has gone up 500% since "we" invaded Afghanistan.

Herion use escalated after Obama ended poppy eradication in the first few months after taking office. When we first went there poppy eradication, the DEA, and other anti drug agencies  were working to stop the drugs.  Obama ended these efforts cause it was hurting Soros money.

Well put. Due process has been proven time and again an incredibly important firewall against tyranny.

So Duterte should just kill drug dealers with drones!

And in the US we do have trials with courts and processes that are a joke. Biased judges. Public defenders in bed with prosecutors. No regard for innocence and no genuine presumption of innocence. Maybe we are no better than Duterte. We just put a lot of perfume on the pig.

I have a very intelligent friend that refused to enter a plea in traffic court because he was asserting a jurisdictional issue. My friend was correct. Jurisdiction issues are show-stoppers. They must be resolved before a plea can be entered or demanded by the court. Merely entering a plea implies consent to jurisdiction. The judge offered a public defender. He refused. The judge declared him mentally incompetent just so a public defender could be forced upon him. Then the public defender immediately entered a BINDING plea in his behalf. Are we better than Duterte?

As his tem limit approaches obama learnss the entire world has always known he was a laughing stockk.  A child that stole daddy's car.

Me thinks Trump and Duterte getting along very well.

Close but not accurate about "Barry's" mother - "son-of-a-whoring-amateur-porn-princess-CIA-op" would be more accurate.

Fuck globalist Obama. Long live a nationalist like Duterte!

Rodrigo Duterte is the Donald Trump of the Philipines. Now look what you started, Donald.

There won't be any meeting, at least publicly. President Empty Suit can't stand the thought of getting his panties bunched up and embarrassed by this guy. Can he run for office in the U.S.?

Duterte is impacting the CIA's top line in the Asian drug trade. He must have wacked some of their better capos.

To everyone who thinks what Duterte's doing is a great thing, I ask you:

How would you feel about it if Hillary could publicly name names of American citizens and then publicly have them killed without due process by the police or vigilantes (or turn themselves in to be incarcerated for who knows how long and under what conditions to await who knows how much of a kangaroo court)?



To all the pro-Hillary people here, I ask the same question, but substitute in Trump instead of Hillary.

Flybyknight's picture

True enough but it is similar to the drone program operated by Washington. Duterte is not an hypocrite like Obama

dchang0's picture

That's true. I'm not saying anything about Obama being a hypocrite, but he definitely is being one.

I'm asking the people who think Duterte's open, public killing of anybody he calls out as a drug dealer if this would be a good thing if, say, Hillary or Trump had the same power...

In other words, we should consider ourselves lucky that Obama and Hillary have to COVERTLY kill their enemies, because the body count would be a lot higher if they could do as Duterte does and openly kill people.

dchang0's picture

Um, go back and re-read my post. I'm NOT saying Hillary SHOULD have the power to publicly kill people, I'm asking the readers here to think about what it would be like if Hillary COULD kill people publicly (and how bad that would be).

We seem to both be on the same side of thinking that Hillary would rack up a massive body count.


BTW, this list of the Clinton Body Count is longer and better documented:

Maybe trump should get him as a follow up act after Nigel.

What would be the consequences if he decided to punch Obama in the nose?

LOL, can you imagine a live TV spot with this dude and Trump airing it out about hillary and other problems the US is causing around the world.

Hopefully his policy for drug dealers will be extended to bankers.

Romanov's picture

For Obama and his coalition of the killing to say anything to Duterte is utter hypocrisy. 

Robert Trip's picture

If anyone is ratting or setting anyone up to take a fall for pushing it's drug dealers, fingering each other to get rid of the competition.

It's a win win situation.

It's pretty basic. You get busted with enough drugs to push and you die.

I don't have a problem with that.

This is war in the Philipines, and the powers that be are doing something about it.

Someone a very long time ago picked this lying African to be the puppet of choice for role he played these past 8 years.

Common Purpose nearly got away with the theft of the western world, making people believe lies to be the self evident truth.  The idiot fucks who sit behind these types of policies, and sheer long term fuck up thinking never reckoned anyone of us lot might catch them owt.  They were told all would be well, the check is in the post, and a lovely relaxing pension would see them through for following the line of thought that was institutionalized into them.

Oh dear, its went a bit pear shaped there mind hasnt it?  Same as the drone operators that cant sleep at night, take anti-depressants by the bucket load, and have an odd habit of topping themselves far too much compared to the general population, oh dear indeed.

Humans are not inherently evil, they were molded that way, no more, no less.  Take a look at any western world leader when he first got the job, bright eyed bushy tailed, full of nowt more than the vainglory that made him look just like he does now, grey of hair, grey of face no matter the colour of your skin, troubled, restless, and a touch listless to boot.  You see they know they wanted the job, and then they knew when they got it, it wasnt worth it.

Again, humans aint evil eh?  This fella from the Philippines is only expressing something the lying African bottled, all for script, from thin air, aint that right Sotero?  Just look at the thick cunt, he doesnt look like he be coping well, just like the drone killers.

It wasnt worth it son, its never worth your soul, and the devil charges a heavy price.  As was, so will be.

Fucking dirty filthy cunt what he so demonstrably proves he is.

An Interesting fact

In 1950 The Philippines was actually richer than South Korea.

Big change in fortunes since then!

Cold War II From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For the 2016 film, see Cold War 2 (film).

Cold War II,[1][2] also called the New Cold War,[3][4] Second Cold War[5][6][7] and Cold War 2.0,[8] refers to a renewed state of political and military tension between opposing geopolitical power-blocs, with one bloc typically being led by Russia or China,[9] while the other is led by the United States or NATO. This is akin to the original Cold War that saw a global confrontation between the Western Bloc led by the United States and the Eastern Bloc led by the Soviet Union, Russia's predecessor. Many historians and journalist argue that it is a misnomer, as Russia is still allied with the United States and more recently have agreed to fight ISIS together in the Syrian War and the Iraq War.

Tactical nuclear weapon

A tactical nuclear weapon (or TNW) also known as non-strategic nuclear weapon[1] refers to a nuclear weapon which is designed to be used on a battlefield in military situations, mostly with friendly forces in proximity and perhaps even on contested friendly territory. This is opposed to strategic nuclear weapons which are designed to be mostly targeted in the enemy interior away from the war front against military bases, cities, towns, arms industries, and other hardened or larger-area targets to damage the enemy's ability to wage war. Tactical nuclear weapons were a large part of the peak nuclear weapons stockpile levels during the Cold War.

Wars of national liberation From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wars of national liberation or national liberation revolutions are conflicts fought by nationalities to gain independence. The term is used in conjunction with wars against foreign powers (or at least those perceived as foreign) to establish separate sovereign states for the rebelling nationality. From a different point of view, these wars are called insurgencies, rebellions, or wars of independence.[1] Guerrilla warfare or asymmetric warfare is sometimes used by national liberation movements, often with intervention from other states.

The term "wars of national liberation" is most commonly used for those fought during the decolonization movement. Since these were primarily in the third world against Western powers and their economic influence and a major aspect of the Cold War, the phrase itself has often been viewed as biased or pejorative.[2] Some of these wars were either vocally or materially supported by the Soviet Union, which stated itself to be an anti-imperialist power, supporting the replacement of western-backed governments with local communist or other non pro-western parties.[1][3] However, this did not always guarantee Soviet influence in those countries. In addition to and increasingly in competition to the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China presented themselves as models of independent nationalist development outside of Western influence, particularly as such posturing and other longterm hostility meant they were regarded as a threat to Western power and regarded themselves as such, using their resources to politically, economically and militarily assist movements such as in Vietnam. In January 1961 Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev pledged support for "wars of national liberation" throughout the world.[4]





Let us imagine how many people would die if war breaks out. There are 2.7 billion people in the world, and a third could be lost. If it is a little higher it could be half ... I say that if the worst came to the worst and one-half dies, there will still be one-half left, but imperialism would be razed to the ground and the whole world would become socialist. After a few years there would be 2.7 billion people again.

— Mao Zedong, 1957 [38]

Obama is going to run and hide.

His handlers always make sure that he is never put in a confrontational situation because he is a coward.

What a pussy.

So, let me get this straight, "collateral damage" and killing US citizens without due process are NOT a "form" of extrajudicial killing? Just wondering...

Such behavior as that is reserved for the Europeans and their mulatto offspring. Asian boys are supposed to behave in the Kung Fu way of the world, my Little Grasshopper.
