Episode 1

Philippine Communists who pride themselves as warriors of the people often talk of how long the struggle or the stragel (depending on class or geographical origin) would be to “overthrow the ruling system” and often point to the principle of “protracted people’s war” or pangmalawigon nga inaway banwa derived from Jose Maria Sison’s romance with the Chinese revolution of Mao Tse Tung.

Sison, accused by critics as stealing Communist Party of Indonesia founder DN Aidit’s work, and photocopying, instead of only being inspired by Mao Tse Tung’s revolution, was so romanitcally attached to Mao’s victorious uprising in China that he even made December 26, Mao’s birthday, as the founding day of the Communist Party and even based the fighting strategy and tactics of the NPA to that of the People’s Liberation Army.

Three components now stand out to be unique to the Philippine’s so-called national democratic revolution, however, according to former cadres and political observers: first is its inability to win despite more than 50 years of wasting lives and stunting the nation’s growth; second: it’s ability to fuse legal and illegal forms by joining the Philippine partylist system; and third: its elaborate terrorist financing scheme that has recently been unraveled and is now being picked apart by government anti-Communist forces.

In fact, to Brigadier General Joey Escanillas, the financing scheme of the CPP for its terrorist operations have also blended legal and illegal sources funelled into non government organizations like the Community Empowerment Resource Network (CERNET) that is fronting as a development NGO for other Communist sectoral front organizations.

Escanillas, who was weaned on intelligence operations as a young Army officer, had reportedly been following the terror financing scheme of the CPP, sources told this reporter, since he was an Army major, including during the days when the now decrepit terrorist force was still raking in millions in the island from its forced taxation and its misreprentation of supposed marginalized and impoverished communities.
