On April 1, 1989, Colonel James Rowe of the US Army was killed by hit squad ambush, he was the first serving US Army officer to be killed by a rebel group in the Philippines. Rowe was being driven to work at the Joint United States Military Advisory Group headquarters in Quezon City shortly after 7 in the morning when gunmen fired more than 20 bullets into his vehicle. He was pronounced dead at a nearby military hospital.

Philippine officials believed the killers were members of the New People's Army's (NPA) Alex Boncayao Brigade, although no group claimed responsibility for the attack. Earlier, the NPA have threatened to attack American targets unless the United States closes its military bases in the Philippines and end its support of the Philippine military's fight against the insurgency.

In NetBeans 8.x enabling Maven to build a project is simply selecting Maven as the project Type which generates automatically the POM.xml containing build configuration details. You just need to update them with your dependencies. Here is our POM.xml updated with our artifacts. Shown here contains artifacts that may not all be used in this demonstration, they are used in our actual project.

So "vice president-elect" Leni Robredo has been proclaimed. What exactly does that mean? It means the country's biggest den of alleged thieves proclaimed her vice president. Does it mean she won the elections? That's not been established. Congress just says so.

It is quite ironic that the very same bozos who had been slamming the bald pork barrel thievery of Congress for several years are now swallowing up its proclamations so easily. You can't recognize a body as a bunch of crooks on one issue and then, on another, embrace everything they stand for. That's being inconsistent. Perhaps this is the reason why the Philippines is a bag of sad contradictions. Nothing about what it is, what it stands for, and what it does is consistent in the sense of the way it would have stacked up on the back of sound principles.

A bit of information that was not mentioned in the bio-data of Smartmatic Chairman Mark Malloch Brown, as posted on the company's website, was that he was the close media adviser and speech writer of the late President Corazon Aquino. He was then disguised as a foreign correspondent in the "snap" elections that led to the 1986 People Power Revolution in the Philippines.

He may even have played a very crucial role in Cory Aquino's ascent to power in 1986, according to an authoritative book on that episode.

On May 16, 1565, Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, issued an order to his soliers to declare gold and other jewels taken from burial places of the natives of Cebu. It was learned, according to the order, that soldiers were opening graves and finding gold without reporting these finds to Legaspi or to the majesty's officials.

If I were in the shoes of all those cheering on Leni Robredo's epic battle against Bongbong Marcos for the vice presidency of the Philippines, I'd be a bit more circumspect. Propelling Leni Robredo's run is the awesome machinery of the Liberal Party which, if one might need remind all, remains in power and enjoys access to a vast trove of public resources. Marcos, on the other hand, is running the race as an independent with no party brand behind him, no election winning machinery, and enjoys no institutionalised kennel of attack dogs.

#‎TodayInPhilippineHistory‬ July 6, 1765, Jose Raon (Jose Antonio Raon y Gutierrez) a native of Navarra, military officer of high rank, arrived in Manila to assume the position of Governor-General. He relieved Francisco Javier de la Torre. He is remembered as very able but unscrupulous.

He is most conspicuous during the expulsion of the Jesuits from the islands (1768), in pursuance of the orders received from Madrid dated March 1, 1767. Raon was condemned for having revealed to the Jesuits, beforehand, in exchange for a large sum of money, the news that their expulsion had been decreed, and for other acts of disobedience to the royal commands regarding that expulsion.

The country's few rich became richer while wages and incomes remained low for millions of working Filipinos in the last five years. This would be one of the clear legacies of the Aquino administration, research group IBON said.

What government claims to have been inclusive growth benefited only a few families and corporations. The wealth of the 10 richest Filipinos has more than tripled at 250% from Php650 billion in 2010 to Php2.2 trillion in 2015. Twelve Filipino billionaires have joined the world's billionaires listed in Forbes Magazine, among them Henry Sy who rose from 97th a year ago to 73rd wealthiest in the world in 2015.
The administration's policies have ensured that the profit-seeking interests of big business are met.

August 1, 1985. A public clamor began in the media in the United States for Marcos's ouster over his failure to carry out State Department - dictated "reforms". On August 1, the Boston Globe editorial stated: "U. S. policymakers should call Marcos's bluff. This is a case in which the hostages are expendable. A conspicuous order to the Pentagon to update its plans for relocating the Philippines bases would send a signal to both Marcos and his critics that the U.S. has learned from its mistakes. ... Clark Field and Subic Bay are undeniably important ... but not irreplaceable. Certainly the Philippines bases are not worth a U.S. war to sustain a discredited regime."

August 16. EIR released story charging that U.S. Ambassador Stephen Bosworth, along with former Ambassador William Sullivan, were plotting a military coup against President Marcos with then Acting Chief of Staff General Fidel Ramos. "The timing for the final move against Marcos is projected in eight to nine months, or will be timed with Marcos's promised reinstatement of Chief of Staff General Fabian Ver. ... Bosworth now meets up to two hours every day with Acting Chief of Staff General Fidel Ramos. ... Ramos would come to power with a young officers' reform movement, called We Belong as his power base in the military." The story was based on information from reliable sources in both Manila and Washington, D.C. The coup plot reflected what sources said was an across-the board consensus that the Marcos government must be overthrown.

When the Philippines officially declares Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte president, the international community will be watching closely as his administration navigates a geopolitical landscape where tensions between China and the United States are escalating.

In the days following the May 9 election, which according to unofficial tallies resulted in a decisive win for the mayor, China expressed hope that a new administration would meet Beijing halfway to resolve its disputes with Manila in the South China Sea (or West Philippine Sea). "So as to put the ties of the two countries back on the track of sound development", said China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang.

An IT expert, who is an accredited observer of the poll watchdog Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPRCV), has in possession of an evidence that shows the "hash code" of the transparency server had been breached by Smartmatic officials to introduce a new script that may have "rigged" the results and compromised the entire system in partial and unofficial counting in favor of administration candidates.

A few hours after the breach, the IT expert source who requested anonymity, said a "clogging" in the system was observed and the one-million lead of independent vice presidential candidate Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. over his closest rival Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo of the ruling Liberal Party started to narrow down.

On May 11, 1956, together with 40 men, Tomas Arbolente Cloma and his brother Filemon took formal possession of a group of islands, lying some 380 miles west of the southern end of Palawan, in the South China Sea or West Philippine Sea, and named it "Free Territory of Freedomland". Four days later on May 15, 1956, Cloma issued and posted copies of his "Notice to the Whole World" on each of the islands as a decisive manifestation of unwavering claim over the territory.

Cloma declared the establishment of the Free Territory of Freedomland, on May 31, 1956, after he made representation to the Secretary of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines, informing the latter about the territory.
