Deep State

Full article: The Philippines/Deep state

Formerly a US Colony. Yamashita's gold is alleged to have been an important factor in the evolution of the US and supranational deep states. The top drug lord in the country have been exporting amphetamines since the early 1990s. Over 40% of convicted drug criminals in the country were government officials in 2010s, with government agencies running a "kill list" against individuals suspected or playing double agent.[7][8][9] The DEA ran multiple operations, suspected of trying to take over the country's trafficking hub, often losing multiple agents in ambushes in the 1990s.[10][11][12]

CIA Coup?

ISGP points out General John Kirk Singlaub, an OSS veteran, CIA founder and Iran-Contra participant, has a long list of accusations against him of involvement in coups around the world, including one where he in 1985 and 1986 was accused of running a CIA coup in the Philippines.[13]

Presidential Assassination?

According to ISGP, the perpetrator of the assassination of Thomas Willhite also was connected to the death of President Ferdinand Marcos. Two lawyers were killed in Washington as they searched for evidence linking BBRDW's client, President Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines to the CIA.[14]

“1995, Catholics for a Free Choice, 'Opus Dei: The Pope's Right Arm in Europe': "The Hanns-Seidel Foundation, based in Germany, is accredited with and receives funding from the European Union. The foundation is linked with the CSU (the Bavarian Christian Democrat) party of the late Fritz Pirkl, who was in the European Parliament and served on the boards of directors of Hanns-Seidel and the Rhine-Danube Foundation. Together with Limmat, Hanns-Seidel has funded Opus Dei’s extensive operations in the Philippines, including the Centre for Research and Communication. The centre’s "self-declared task is to form the future economic and political elite of the country," writes Opus Dei critic Peter Hertel. "Under President Corazon Aquino, Opus members have put a decisive stamp on the country’s Constitution."”

Sexual Blackmail

Apart from mail-order brides that appeared to be kidnapped and sold, people selling their kids to foreign men that build up "ghost debt" called debt bondage was an increasing part of the Filipino sex industry during the 2000s. The women often need to import their own familly members that get sold as prostitutes as well to pay off the increased debts.[16]

Kid sex trafficking

CNN stated in 2010 that "Pagsanjan, located about 60 miles south of Manila, became known as a popular location for men seeking homosexual sex and attracting an increasing number of child molesters." In the '80s, Pagsanjan was declared by international gay publications as a paradise for them, a gay paradise, a haven for homosexuals. In 2001, it was estimated there were 10,000 young girls trafficked into sex slavery in Cebu. The US Department of State in 2001, estimated that about 40,000 Filipino women were trafficked into the entertainment industry in Japan using entertainment visas ending as sex slaves.[17] In 2007, reports by CBC News estimated the number of Filipinas trafficked into Japan for prostitution to be as high as 150,000.[18] Biggest demand appeared to be coming from the Japanese mafia groups knows as the Yakuza selling kids for as low as $2400.[19] Unicef called The Philippines in 2016 "sex trafficking capital" of the world and "unstoppable".[20]

Murdered and dissected children

The World Health Organization called the Philippines as one of the five organ trafficking hotpots of the world. Instances include abducting and killing kids of people in debt to sell them.[21][22][23]

Nurses Trafficking

In 2021, Bloomberg reported a nursing agency that brought Filipino nurses to the U.S. and promised them jobs, but threatened them with large fines if they left those jobs prematurely, was to pay $1.56 million to the nurses, plus interest, following a New York trial. The court said that "Prompt Nursing Employment Agency LLC" doing business as Sentosa Services, had violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and was conducting human trafficking.

Drug War

In the 2010s, Rodrigo Duterte declared a "War on Drugs" in the country, which turned the cities and south of the country into the worst parts of Mexico, with full blown wars between drug cartels and the Filipino Army.[24][25][26]
