MANILA, Philippines—US President Barack Obama will visit Manila during his weeklong Southeast Asian trip next month to boost alliances at a time of growing territorial tensions in the region, Malacañang said Saturday.

Obama, during his state visit in the Philippines on October 11 to 12, will discuss with President Benigno Aquino “ways to further strengthen the enduring Philippines-US alliance, including the expansion of our security, economic, and people-to-people ties,” the Palace said in a statement.

“President Obama will meet with President Aquino to reaffirm the strong economic, people-to-people, and security links between the two countries,” it said.

The Manila visit will be Obama’s first in the Philippines—a key US trade and military ally—since he took office in 2009.

Aside from the Philippines, the American President will travel to Indonesia, Brunei and Malaysia during the weeklong Southeast Asian tour from October 6 to 12 as part of his ongoing commitment to boost US political, economic and security engagement with the Asia Pacific, the White House said.

In Indonesia, the US leader will attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) Economic Leaders meeting—an annual forum of 21 Pacific Rim countries promoting free trade and economic integration.

He will then fly to Brunei for the US-Asean Summit and the East Asia Summit (EAS) and to meet with Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah.

The next stop will be Malaysia, where Obama will highlight the United States’ growing bilateral ties with the Islamic state.

    INTERESTING TO SEE HOW MUCH A$$ KISSING, KOWTOWING, ARM BENDING, CURTSYING AND FAWNING WILL BEFALL THE FILIPINO WHO HAS NO CLUE HOW THIS IS ALL ABOUT MAKING SURE THE WAR SUPPORT IS INTACT AND NOTHING MORE.

    WHEN WILL YOU FLIPPERS WAKE UP AND REALIZE THIS U.S PRESIDENT IS NOT ABOUT ECONOMICS. HECK HE FURTHER DISMANTLED HIS OWN UNITED STATES IN HIS FIRST TERM. THE ECONOMY TOOK A DUMP IN 2008 THE YEAR OBAMA WAS ELECTED. WHAT ABOUT THAT $500 MILLION SOLARGATE LOAN TO SOLYNDRA, WHERE INSIDER WASHINGTONIANS SOLD OFF THEIR STOCKS IN THE SOLAR COMPANY MONTHS BEFORE SOLYNDRA WENT DOWN THE TOILET, OBAMA’S ENRON??? OUT OF THIS GEORGE KAISER, BILLIONAIRE INVESTOR IN SOLYNDRA WHO HAPPENED TO BE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO OBAMA’S 2008 CAMPAIGN, RECOUPED HIS $75,000,000.00 INVESTMENT INTO SOLYNDRA BEFORE THE COMPANY WENT TO THE CHAPTER 11 CHOP SHOP.

    AND HE’S NOT ABOUT SECURITY EITHER BECAUSE UNDER HIS WATCH HOW MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, IF NOT MILLIONS DIED IN THE NAME OF PEACE???

    IRONIC HE IS A NOBEL PEACE AWARD RECIPIENT!!!

    IN HIS OWN WORDS, OBAMA MOUTHS “WAR IS PEACE!”

    MORE OVER WHAT WILL THE FILIPINO BE ASKED TO DO FOR THE GLOBALIST PRESIDENT THIS TIME AROUND???

    WILL HE MENTION “AL QAEDA” AS THE ENEMY?

    IS IT ANTI-SEMITIC TO NOT SUPPORT ISRAEL’S SUPPORTING AL QAEDA AS A PROXY IN SYRIA???

    ASSAD DID NOTHING, HE WAS WESTERNIZING SYRIA, TO OPEN RESORTS TO INVITE TOURISM!

    BUT HERE WASHINGTON COMES AND PAINTS ASSAD AS A BAD GUY.

    THE REAL BAD GUYS ARE THE TYRANTS CONTROLLING WASHINGTON!!!

    THE GLOBALISTS USED ASSAD’S PLAN TO TURN SYRIA INTO A MODEL NATION ON THE PLANET AGAINST HIM TO MAKE READY ACTIONS FOR WAR.

    DESTABILIZATION OF SYRIA BY GLOBALIST FORCES TO COLLAPSE THE REAL ESTATE AND CIVILIZATIONS IN SYRIA AND SELL IT OFF TO INTERESTED PARTIES, SAUDI, FRANCE, ET AL FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR.

    WHAT BURGOS STREET MOVE WILL FLIPPERS MAKE NEXT???

    YOU ALREADY GAVE UP YOUR SOVEREIGNTY WITH PA 21 THANKS TO FIDEL RAMOS’ MIDNIGHT MADNESS.

    YOU THINK YOU ARE SAFE FROM CHINA JUST BECAUSE THE U.S. IS FLITTING AROUND???

    HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES, THE 2 MILLION CHRISTIANS THAT LEFT SYRIA AS THEY WERE IN LINE FOR BEHEADING, WON’T HAPPEN TO THE PHILIPPINES??

    HOW MANY PUPPET LEADERS PLAYED BALL WITH THE U.S. AND THE GLOBALISTS, ONLY TO BE STABBED IN THE BACK, PAINTED AS A DICTATOR MURDERER SOME TIME DOWN THE LINE???

    WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU HAVE ANYTHING THEY WANT OTHER THAN YOUR LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES???

    BEING CHRISTIAN APPARENTLY DOES NOT HOLD SWAY OVER ANYTHING.

    SO???

    HOW MUCH YASSAH-MASSSAH-SIR ARE YOU NOGNOGS GOING TO DO???

    THE SYSTEM IS COUNTING ON IGNORANCE. IT IS THE OCEAN IN WHICH THESE GLOBALIST-EUGENICIST TYRANTS SWIM.

    RHETORIC IS RIFE, READING BETWEEN THE LINES IS KEY.

    YOU WILL NEVER BE TRULY FREE UNLESS YOU FREE YOURSELF OF TYRANNY.

    WHEN THE EMPEROR APPEARS, ALL WILL MARVEL AT HIS NEW ATTIRE.

    WHERE ARE THE INNOCENTS TO SEE THIS IN A NAKED LIGHT??

      “YOU THINK YOU ARE SAFE FROM CHINA JUST BECAUSE THE U.S. IS FLITTING AROUND???” – 33Sam

      Definitely no! The Philippines will never be safe from China. Even the US will not be safe. How much more for the Southeast Asean countries? China is gobbling any island or shoals that it can ridiculously claim to firm up its intrusion and occupancy because of resources it needs to support its economy and industry in the future. Threat is fully made against the SEA countries to realize its final goal of pressuring same countries to offer joint venture on their natural resources under Chinese conditions. Unity is the only chance for SEA nations to neutralize the bullying China claiming every land and sea where there are natural resources.

      • 33Sam

        YOU NEED TO BE INFORMED ABOUT AGENDA 21 WHICH FIDEL RAMOS SIGNED ONTO IN 1997 AKA PA 21.

        THE PLAN OF AGENDA 21 IS FOR THE SUPER RICH GLOBALISTS TO OWN AND CONTROL THE ENTIRE PLANET, DISMANTLING AND CONTROLLING ALL GOVERNMENTS TO BRING IN NEW WORLD ORDER WITH THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF REDUCING WORLD POPULATION BY 90 OR 99%. THERE WILL BE NO MORE COUNTRIES NO MORE U.S.A. TO GET READY FOR A TRANSHUMANIST SOCIETY. INDUSTRIALIZATION IS A TOOL WITH THE ENDGAME FOR DE-INDUSTRIALIZATION. ONLY THE RICH AND CONNECTED WILL HAVE LIFE EXTENSION TECHNOLOGY.

        ELYSIUM IS A HINT AT THIS PLAN NOT NECESSARILY THE SPACE STATION IDEA BUT THE SITUATION IS SIMILAR.

        WHAT YOU SEE NOW IS THESE CHESS PIECES BEING MOVED AROUND BY THESE GLOBALISTS. THEY HAVE BEEN AT IT FOR 500 YEARS AND THE 21ST CENTURY IS THEIR CENTURY FOR ALL THIS.

        MEANWHILE UNINFORMED PEOPLE ARE LEFT TO THINK IN LEFT-RIGHT PARADIGMS OF CHINA VS. THE U.S. VS ANYONE ELSE. THE GLOBALISTS PLAY ALL COUNTRIES OFF EACHOTHER. THE LEADERS ARE BOUGHT OFF TO FOLLOW THE GLOBALIST PLAN.

        FIRST HINT OF GLOBALIST DOMINATION IS FOREIGN BANKERS IN YOUR COUNTRY CONTROLLING YOUR GOVERNMENT AND TAPPING INTO YOUR TREASURY LIKE GOLDMAN SACHS, J.P. MORGAN, CITI CORP. SIGNING ON TO GMO/HYBRID FOOD PRODUCTS WHICH ARE PART OF CODEX ALIMENTARIUS SIGNED INTO ACTION BY THE U.N. AND THE WORLD HEALTH ORG. IN 2009 TO KILL 3 BILLION PEOPLE THROUGH FAKE VIRUS TAINTED FOODS AND GMO.

        THESE PLANS ARE REAL AND ARE IN PLAY AS WE SPEAK, THEY STARTED A LONG TIME AGO EVEN BACK IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY.
