 American soldiers occupies Las Piñas – June 1899img003 Upon arrival at Manila from Hong Kong, Aguinaldo’s foreign minister Apolinario Mabini advised him not to declare independence and instead first, prove to the Americans that they were ready for self-rule. Mabini favored autonomy  or what would be today a Freely Associated state relative to the U.S. But perhaps because of deep personal losses, Aguinaldo went ahead and on June 12, 1898 declared independence. In his long absence Aguinaldo’s first wife remarried and His brother Crispulo was killed when Bonifacio ceded to the Spanish forces territories previously secured by the revolutionaries, after breaking off from the Revolutionary government of which Aguinaldo was elected president. Aguinaldo’s nationalist army was more of an alliance of militias commanded by landowners whose soldiers were from various ethnic regions of Ilokos, Pangasinan, Pampanga, Bicol and of course Tagalog. They spoke different languages. There wasn’t a national army to speak of. After Aguinaldo swore allegiance to the United States, the war went on. Nicolas Aldana never joined Aguinaldo’s army and didn’t join Aguinaldo who went north up to Palanan, Isabela where he was captured. Nicolas Aldana didn’t surrender hence the possibility that it was a trump up charge was high.  Voting requirements 1901 With voting requirements such as: Must know how to speak, read & write English or Spanish and own property of at least P500 OR have worked in the government before 1898, the U.S. has planted the roots of elitist and undemocratic oligarchy. In 1899, who could afford to own property worth P500 and speak, read write Spanish if not the middle and upper classes? The Americans had no plans of settling in the Philippines as they did in other territories or non-territories like Hawaii.    GENERAL ORDERS NO. 344 dated Nov. 7, 1901 sentencing Nicolas Aldana, et al to die by hanging as confirmed by Maj. Gen. Adna Romanza Chafee, commanding general Department of Southern Luzon. Note that no counsel for the defendants have been named.   Blog - Nicolas Aldana - Hearing 1901 p.1 Blog - Nicolas Aldana - Hearing 1901 p.2 “The army used the 1863 General Orders 100 (signed into law by Abraham Lincoln to govern the actions of Union soldiers in wartime) as legal authorization for governing the Philippines. As long as Filipinos did not resist military authority, support the insurgents, or take up arms, they could expect friendly treatment. For those who actively opposed the United States, however, the order prescribed cash fines, confiscation or destruction of property, summary imprisonment, relocation, capture of hostages, and execution of guerrillas who did not observe the laws and customs of war.”   –

Aldana was the mayor when World War II broke out. Another grandson, Cenon Aldana-Cosme served with the Insular U.S. Navy and was captured when Corregidor fell on May 6, 1942. He was later arrested as a suspected American Agent in saturation drive on Dec. 1944. Believed to have been taken to the notorious dungeons of Fort Santiago, Cenon A. Cosme was presumed to have been tortured then killed.  His body was never found. After the war, Bernardo Q. Aldana resumed his law practice and represented Americans whose properties were systematically being taken by relatives and friends of oligarch-traitors. Below is a successful appeal for plaintiff George McEntee.

For more than twenty (20) years, I couldn’t understand why my wife and I have been struggling with our respective careers and why  the Philippines would not give me my official college transcript of records that I may formally take up law or an MBA to further my career and improve my earning capacity.

My late wife earned her Master’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from Stanford University. She discovered and explored all the known geothermal areas in the Philippines. At one time we both worked in geothermal companies in California, one of which we significantly helped secure  build-operate-transfer geothermal power plant contracts in the Philippines in the 1990’s. Still the oligarchic families ended up owning the entire energy industry and the economy.

Today, ethnic Chinese and ethnic Spaniards own and control the entire geothermal industry and the rest of the Philippine economy.

Then it occurred to me that no matter how smart you are, where you earned your degree, how hard you work and how pious you pray and regardless of your sex, in the Philippines, then as now, even before the Americans came, it will be the same oligarchic families who will be on top of the economy and food chain. We have in fact a caste system in the Philippines to this day funded and supported by the U.S. government through the World Bank, IMF and the U.N.

U.S. High Commissioner to the Philippines Paul V. McNutt wanted to postpone giving the Philippines independence. However on 22 Oct. 1946 the U.S. Senate ratified the Treaty of Manila and turned the former U.S. territory over to oligarch-traitors whose grandchildren are still in power to this day.

I have made my intentions of establishing a government-in-exile for the Philippines based in London, UK. 

Excerpt: “At times like these, I cannot help but think that the Philippines would be far better off under a UK dominion status.  http://www.nedmacario.us/2013/05/21/flags-of-the-philippines/

 First, a government-in-exile for the Philippines must be established in London, England with dominion status and accepted by HRH Queen Elizabeth II. Then that government in exile will hire UK-ANZAC Emergency crews and US Navy Public Works and the Sea Bees. There is no continuity dealing with Washington DC. Besides, the US never really stays long enough to make a lasting difference. Just look at Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Philippines being a former US territory won’t create a problem for the UN if it becomes freely associated with the UK and/or the US.  Other UN members could not follow the Philippines’ example.

A Compact of Free Association is really the fastest way the UK and US should have been able to help the Philippines if it wasn’t for the obstructionism of the World Bank, IMF, the UN Filipino oligarchs & politicians, including the clergy.”Blog - 1st time in 112 yrs. snow covers the great pyramids of Egypt 12-12-13
