There is good strategy and tactics to be learned from the Watergate scandal that brought down Richard M. Nixon in 1974.

What brought him down was not the petty break-in by the Watergate burglars, but the COVER-UP that an increasingly paranoid and isolated Nixon launched to save his sinking Presidency.

In the series of defensive moves that Malacanang has made this past week, one sees the makings of a massive OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE case building against the following individuals:

(0) Sec. Raul Gonzales
(1) Sec. Toting Bunye
(2) Sec. Eduardo Ermita
(3) Sec. Mike Defensor
(4) NTC Commissioner Roland Solis
(5) NBI Director Wycoco
(6) the ISAFP
(7) the PNP

for various Orwellian moves, dereliction of duty, false claims,bald lies,intentional misdirections, and other Machiavellian schemes that in the end, can add up to prosecutable acts, especially if done in conspiracy . These people do not have a right to protection under the freedom of expression clause of the Constitution in their official acts and statements, which have the awesome power of the State behind them and cannot later be denied as “opinion” or “honest mistakes.”

They have been consciously misleading the public about what the Law truly demands they do, which is to discover the Truth, not to bury it. They have not been aiding justice, only obstructing it.

All these taped conversations prove that we have a fititious president just like the americans do. This also proves that the Iglesia ni Cristo Vote is not only another big myth but the Mother of all Electoral Victory Myths.

Gloria knew the INC vote to be a MYTH to begin with otherwise she won’t go through all the trouble of big time CHEATING. But Gloria, along with other cheating politicians, needs to offer a “reason” for winning to buttress the illussion of electoral victory.

The myth of the “Iglesia ni Cristo Vote”, however, is one myth that is within the politicians’ interest to perpetuate. Number one in this category is Manalo’s co-inventor of the myth, non other than the late Manuel L Quezon.

I hope MLQ3 is not proud of this “legacy”… especially if he plans to enter the political scene in the future.

There is a grand conspiracy to steal the presidency and Manalo is inextricably part of it.

In contrast, the late Diosdado Macapagal, for all his human failings, had so much more political and moral credibility than his daughter. One legacy of that presidency is the fact that he refused INC’s preferred support during his runs for Vice President in 1957, and re-election for President in 1965–in which he incidentally lost to Marcos, who in turn won purportedly because of the support of INC and Manalo.

Did they not also support Erap, that presumed lord of all Juetemg lords? And look what happened to the country because of that. Then they chose Gloria, that presumed Queen of Cheating, and look what is happening to the country now! Marcos, Erap & Gloria. Three political quagmires in a row, all with the blessing of Manalo.

From now on Manalo’s endorsement of a presidential candidate should be seen as one big OMEN for the rest of the non-INC Filipinos. Indeed, how could something “holy” come out of stealing your church members their right of suffrage?

Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) Vote is indeed a MYTH. I don’t believe that they can make or break the winability of a candidate. If that’s true, how come the INCs never fielded their own candidate for national post such as in the senate VP or Pres??! Its because they knew it will never win.

What I heard from an insider is that they overstate their list of members from local to national level and then they will present these list to a (highest bidder?) candidate/politician who could promise them favors, position and influence if they will in the election.

No wonder why Wycoco still at the NBI. He’s an INC (that’s what I heard). He’s an outsider, who’s not even a law graduate, now a Director of NBI (and owner of a big mansion somewhere in Nueva Ecija?). Unlike a few years NBI is regarded as an elite agency and highly respected. But now NBI, is regarded sa “ka-level na lang ng mga pulis”. Kawawa naman yung mga career NBI agent, nang dahil kay Wycoco, bumamaba yung tingin sa kanila. (Unlike the times of Fred Lim, Epi Velasco, etc)

About former president Diosdado Macapagal. I remeber he was once referred to as “Cong. Dado” or “the Poor Boy from Lubao” (Pampanga) when he was still congressman then. How come the family of such poor boy become suddenly so rich now. Look at her unica hija Gloria, nakapag-aral sa Georgetown sa tate, kumpleto pa ng doctorate. Can we refer GMA the “poor girl from Lubao”, di yata bagay, baka tarayan pa tayo kung tatawagin natin sya ng ganun! Donya Lualhati or Donya Gloria yata ang preferred nya.

found this site only today, hope am not too late to give my views. thanks to PCIJ for this patriotic project. Everytime I read Manila newspapers, I get the feeling that since GMA assumption to office all her cabinet members and subofficials do nothing but support any of her acts to perpetuate herself in power.

Key people in her bureaucracy and thatinet includes the judiciary and Congress travel the road most travelled – to support and protect G.ARROYO and her family — while violate existing laws for personal gain.

Many cabinet members –BUNYE is the prime example– worked 20 hours everyday, is giving his sweat blood and tears– not in service of the people who pays his salary but to serve and protect G.ARROYO.

Generals are using their soldiers to serve and protect the personnas talking in the tape. Any ideas on how to have a clean armed forces after a change of administration? Comments are welcome from civilians and military alike?

Actually right now we’re not even sure if the tape is wiretapped or not since nobody yet is admitting that they are the voices of that tape. Only when the president and Garcilliano admit will we consider it wiretapped. So I believe technically there’s no wiretapping crime yet.

we put the constitution there, let’s follow it. for the moment there is not wrongdoing that would disqualify noli. we will watch him like a hawk and see if he favors his amo, the lopezes. matakot siya at kung gawin niya yun and we have proof then we can boot him out via impeachment or if he prefers, he can resign. etc.

Please enlighten me then, ka Darren, please. Is it true that you can get excommunicated (tiwalag) if you are caught to have not voted the candidate your church endorsed? If, and only if, this is true, then this is equivalent to indirect coercion.

OR since you may have voluntarily believed your church’s doctrines on the matter, it is equivalent to surrendering your right of suffrage. And this is the very reason na dangerous to democracy ang practice na yan. Kung 100% ng pinoy electorate, halimbawa, eh na-convert sa INC, ilang tao kaya ang liligawan ng mga kandidato? Isa lang, si Manalo lang right? Now will that still be democracy?

And I agree, walang nakakakita sa inyo kung sino talaga binoto nyo inside the voting booth, thereby proving once again na walang basis yung sinasabi mo na “united” kayo pagdating sa botohan.

AND BESIDES, hindi yan ang isyu ka Darren. Bawal yan dito dahil hindi related sa main article. Ang isyu sa blog na ito ay INSTITUTIONALIZED ELECTORAL CHEATING. And in my humble opinion in this democratic country, dawit dyan si Manalo indirectly, dahil pinoproject ng church nyo na pwedeng makapagpanalo ang bloc voting nyo. Nagiging kasangkot sya, wittingly or unwittingly I don’t know, sa pag kokondisyon sa isip ng mga tao na kaya nanalo si ganito eh dahil suportado yan ng INC. Nagkakaroon ng “reason to believe” na credible ang panalo, when in fact nandaya. There’s no need to convince the freethingking Filipinos in this country na merong dayaan sa eleksyon, lalo na last presidential elections. Their experience tells them so. Proof na lang ang kailangan.

Think about this. Kapag may napili si Manalo na isang tiwaling kandidato at pagkatapos nanalo dahil sa suporta nyo at pagkatapos gumawa ng kung ano-anong kalokohan… mananagot ba si Manalo? Hindi? Pero sino mag sa-suffer? Sambayanan?

Kapag napatunayan sa Wiretapgate investigation na nandaya si Gloria, that should be the end of the argument. Dapat magkaroon ng massive electoral reform and I hope makiki cooperate and INC rito, afterall, isang bansa lang ito. Lahat ng namumuno sa gobyerno, ano man ang relihiyon nila, dapat pantay-pantay ang pakikitungo sa lahat ng religious groups. Dapat gawin nila yung kung ano ang nararapat ayon sa prinsipyo at hindi naiimpluwensyahan sila ng mga grupong inaalagaan nila.

Sorry kung na-offend ka o sino mang INC. Ang pakay ko lang ay i-raise ang isang legitimate issue na related sa electoral cheating. Kung ano man ang doctrinal issues nyo inside your church about this thing is really your internal concern. It’s your religious right and no one is questioning that. Ang point ko rito ay ang epekto nito sa mas nakakaraming Pilipino.

2. Who? duh? Noli de Castro???? I KNOW he’s so vain (aside from being kinda dumb) that he sat on telepgone directories just to look taller on TV when he was reading the news during the old days. He even cheats on he’s height.
3. I love GMA. Maybe it was a private auction at the COMELEC and she won, so what’s all the buzz about? I would do and so would YOU too if you wanted anything to “bid on” like the presidency.
4. We do not need another people power. We need EBAY and then just get all those who want to succeed her LISTED as PRESIDENTIAL WANNA BE and let us ALL bid !

I have to agree.

Cheating, in the context of elections, happens when there are RULES violated. In the field of TV News Anchoring, there is no Rule against using a telephone directory to “improve” one’s height; so its not “cheating” in the same moral dimension as cheating in elections.

If all candidates cheated, it would only depict the despicable nature of our elections and our politics and our politicians and most of all, the Comelec. But even that cannot be used as an excuse to allow a victorious cheater to enjoy public office especially when he is caught red handed. Kapag kinunsinti natin, it would be equivalent to saying “may the best cheaters win”.

The issue is not whether all candidates cheated. The issue is whether this alleged winner in the Presidential elections really won via the people’s majority vote.

To All,

Diddn’t it occur to you that even if there is no expert who will listen to the Garci-Gloria tapes, God provided us with divine instruments which have been there since Adam and Eve to render fair judgement on thiese tapes. Yes, we don’t need NBI, FBI, KGB, Scotland Yard, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Interpol and all these so-called elite intelligence agencies. All we need are: Our EARS, BRAIN and JUDGEMENT.

All those were provided by God, therefore supposed to be unadulterated if used with the best of intentions. The reason why the Administration wants technical research is they are buying time and hoping that supporters will rally behind Gloria and praying hard that somewhere in the world, an agency will come out and say: “The tapes were tampered with”. But they will fail miserably because behind everything that is happening now is the hand of God and god never lies.

So, to Gloria and the rest of the Administgration: Please lang, spare the Filipinos another expensive exercise (voice analysis by international bodies, Congressional debates, military preparations and mobilization, hakot crowds to beef up support, etc.) which we know naman will not amount to anything since the issue has a clear ending: GLORIA WILL STEP OUT. As to the exact method of leaving the Palace, I honestly don’t know. That’s her own choice.

We need not question each others findings that the Garci-Gloria voices are authentic kasi alam naman natin deep in ouir hearts sila yun dahil nga impeccable ang mga faculties (hearing, thinking and reasoning) na ibinigay ng Diyos sa atin para malaman natin ang katotohanan as I stated above. Kaya nga lang, para sa mga pro-Gloria mahirap aminin na totoo ang mga boses kasi attached sila kay Gloria, understandable.

Inspite of what Gloria has done, I like her. I really like her. To step down.

You are thinking like the unlamented people in this present Admistration who have no regard for the Constitution. If Gloria steps down, the next in line will be Noli de Castro, whether we like it or not because that’s what the law says in terms of presidential succession.

The only exception, perhaps, is if a revolution succeeds and the entire government dismantled and replaced by a transition government. But unless that happens, Noli de Castro will succeed The Glori.

Natatawa lang ako. Nung 2001, maingay na isinisigaw ng marami: ERAP RESIGN! Sa lakas ng sigaw nila, hindi na nila marinig ang pakiusap ng kapwa nila Pilipino sa kabilang panig na sumunod sa Kontitusyon. At siyempre, nagwagi sila.

Ngayon, 2006, sila naman ang nasa kabila at sumisigaw ngunit hindi pinakikinggan ng madla. Ang isinisigaw nila: Sumunod tayo sa Konstotusyon!, bagay na hindi nila tinatanggap noon, gusto nila tanggapin natin ngayon.

Ano kayo, hilo? Hindi ito 100% Konstitusyon. May halo itong kamay ng Diyos. Kaya niyo ba yon?

LUMABAS NA ANG KATOTOHANAN. ANO MAN ANG NANGYARI, PINAYAGAN NG DIYOS NA MANGYARI PARA MAGTANDA ANG LAHAT.

Ang moral lesson natin dito siguro ay: Bantayan mo ang boto mo pero habang gina-guwardiyahan mo ang boto mo, huwag mo ng pakialaman ang boto ng iba!!!

so what’s the best option now for the filipinos? gloria to step out, noli to succeed or snap election? and who are the candidates? ‘suma total’ wala rin, dahil kahit sino ang nasa pwesto meron pa ring hindi kuntento. the politicians are all the same in terms of breed and interest, lahat pang-masa in guise of self interest. weather-weather lang

just two things at the moment:

one- losers in the last 2004 elections who were mentioned in the tapes which are time-specific, place specific, and names-specific should consider possibility of filing election protests, revived the protests if they have already done so, especially for the higher positions like the senate and lower house, gubernatorial posts.

for example. Ex-Senator Barbers may file a (or revived his ) protest to establish his win or clear his name. Opposition senatorial candidates must do so for future elections sake.

two: it’s simplistic to say and stress that elections can be won by the highest bidder. comparing the COMELEC to eBay is a gross insult to the people of eBay, they may be sales people but they are not beholden to the powers that be or influentials. There is no comparison in terms of the quality of intellect and presence of integrity of people who manage and work in these organizations. It can only be perceived which one is damaged and dirtied.

The reason why our country has brazen politicians doing their dirty works right in front of our face is because our politicians know that we are pushovers. Had we hanged every corrupt politician in every people power revolt that has occurred (like what they do in France), we wouldn’t be having this problem now. There should be a strong an absolute execution of justice for the crimes committed by our politicians and government officials.

To be taken seriously, the Filipinos must act serious. There should be no doubt in anyone who would take the road to public service, be honest or suffer the unwavering hand of the people’s justice.

If we don’t wake up and take-up this duty, our country will go to the dogs. Most, if not all, politicians and government employee will rob this country to the ground. And when we reach the threshold wherein we are so poor that civil war breaks out, these thieves would be living in some 1st world country, leaving the Filipinos to kill each other (which has already started, if you don’t notice, with the continuous increase of crime in our country).

Did they not also support Erap, that presumed lord of all Juetemg lords? And look what happened to the country because of that. Then they chose Gloria, that presumed Queen of Cheating, and look what is happening to the country now! Marcos, Erap & Gloria. Three political quagmires in a row, all with the blessing of Manalo.

From now on Manalo’s endorsement of a presidential candidate should be seen as one big OMEN for the rest of the non-INC Filipinos. Indeed, how could something “holy” come out of stealing your church members their right of suffrage?

Theyre entitled to opinion. And belive me to a cup of joe that they are alot of people from locals around the Phil who are against the GMA administration. Iam not from INC but i know some people who are definitly against GMA and for some reason, Bong R. Well, thats a diffrent story now. Iam not siding with no one. Lets just respect each other.

Politics and religion is one of the major causes of divisiveness among our people.
Let us not talk about political and religious affiliations this time. Let us be united in bringing back our country to its feet. This we will not achieve if we keep on fighting with each other, taking sides with opposite groups, defending each religion and pushing for different agenda.
Let us focus only on one issue here and that is how to cleanse our country with evils and imbeciles and to start from the beginning.
We have to do this now and not tomorrow because our country’s future depends on how we do our part today, on how we shape our country and how we stand-up to the chalenges of today.
Let us all be patriotic, honest, dedicated and focused on our goal for our country’s sake and for our children’s future.

I agree with juanday said. But the question is, who will step up to clean the dirty politics? As of now, anyone wishes to step up and stand are already branded as greed, ambitious etc. even before he/she speaks. No person (who is ideal) would like to be called as such. Only those who wishes power and position are not bothered to be called as such.

This cycle of dirty politics will stay forever unless someone who is brave enough address the mother of all problem, which is corruption. We all know that corruption is the root of all evil here in our country. Without corruption, our country will prosper. We need someone who really is against corruption. Someone who is brave and bold enough to prosecutes ‘anyone’ who are caught doing illegal acts. Someone who doesn’t need to tell him what to do or say next. Someone who can stand on his own (or independent basta hindi balimbing). Someone who did a great job as a public servant. In my opinion, these should be the qualifications of a good leader of our country.

most people only connected to the internet have heard the tapes and millions of unconnected ones havent heard it.

that is why a sedition/wire-tapping case is being hurled to anyone to scare the people.

And that is why there are parties who are giving CD’s of the tapes so that more people can hear it.

So how can we help in distributing those conversation. Radio/TV aren’t airing it i think.

to eboyako,

I respect your views and I respect your religious beliefs but I’m sorry that my post offended you, it was not intended to. I have some friends who are INC, and I must say they are some of the most helpful people in my personal circle of friends, despite them knowing my religious affiliation. We just agreed not to talk about religion and leave the job of debating to our religious leaders.

Darren and I even agreed to discontinue discussing religion here, for which we both complied, for the reason that it is off-topic. Now that you resurrected my otherwise forgotten post, I have no choice but to respond. I hope this is the last time I will have to.

I have nothing personal against INC neither do I have anything personal against INC members. As eboyako said and I agree, we have both our democratic rights here. And that right includes Religious Freedom.

What I’ve said, however, is my personal political opinion. And my comments are exclusively mine just as my choice of religious affiliation is exclusively mine.

Having said this, I still do not blame you for reacting as you did. In fact I even admire you for doing so in protest since, as you said, you too have democratic rights and therefore hindi ka makatiis na hindi ako sagutin, and that’s the practice of democratic rights in action.

At least on the issue of democratic rights, magkakampi tayo, so we can begin to understand each other based on this.

Maybe this GMA government could learn a thing or two from eboyako, especially its agency the MTRCB, (which is directly under the Office of the President). If only this MTRCB could learn to respect other people’s democratic rights, just like you do, then maybe we won’t even be discussing religion here.

Why the MTRCB is banning our church leaders from appearing on TV while at the same time respect the religious and democratic rights of INC ministers to attack us on TV, I don’t know.

Unlike eboyako, the MTRCB do not know the meaning of democratic rights.

And this my dear eboyako, Is where I am coming from. This government of GMA, whom you said “cheated”, denied us, and continues to deny us, of our group’s religious freedom to propagate our faith on TV, which is accorded to all other religious denominations.

My hope, eboyako, is that on this specific issue of democratic rights, magkakampi pa rin tayo.

Again, I’m sorry if you don’t like what I’ve posted. Maybe I was just desperate to air my honest opinion here since we are being banned by this government from airing our religious beliefs on TV. In the future, should there be a government that will trample on INC’s religious and democtratic rights of free expression, kakampi mo ako pati na lahat ng ADD.

I just cannot pretend that this GMA government is just all about jueteng and election cheating. It’s also about the grand machinery behind that jueteng and election cheating.

TAONG BINGI lang ang di makkpagsabing si Gloria-Garci-Mike-Barbers ang nasa tape. Pero bakit marami pa rin ang hesitant in opposing this government, or the worse, ayaw bumitaw at nagbibingibingihan sa mga naririnig nila

1. sa mga NAKIKINABANG sa pwestong bigay ng reyna mandaraya (wycoco, gonzales, defensor, PNP officials, AFP officials at marami pang iba) mas gugustuhin nilang maging bingi kesa mawala sa eksena sa pag nagpalit ng liderato, at patuloy na pakinabangan at pagpasasaan ang pwesto ng mga lintek.

2. MILITAR –
mga JUNIOR OFFICERS, takot na, walang ibang career na alam kundi ang mamaril, ayaw magaya sa sinipang Coronel na nag kalat ng e-mail. nabahag din ang buntot sa nakitang tagal ng pagkakakulong ng oakwood mutineers. sariwa pa ang sugat sa tama ng GMA bomb.

mga SENIOR OFFICERS. hinihintay pang matapos ang bahay bakasyunan sa boracay. feeling enjoy pa rin sa pag-gogolf sa Crame. in short, ayaw nang gumawa ng aksyong di rin naman sila ang lubos na makikinabang, kundi gagamitin din naman sila ng mga pulitikong mas garapal ang agenda.

3. PULIS – ah! wala talaga tayong maasahan sa mga yan.

3. NEGOSYANTE- malaki ang mawawalang kita at may posibilidad na bumagsak ang ekonomiya pag nasira ang disposisyon ng gobyerno lalo nat kung militarisasyon ang maging sagot sa gulong ito. Wala silang nakikitang alternatibong liderato na mag-bibigay sa kanila ng mga pabor na tinatamasa nila sa kasalukuyang liderato.

4. SIMBAHAN – hesitant na gumawa ng aksyon dahil ayaw na nilang maulit uli ang pagkakamali ng EDSA II, maari ring nag-hihintay, wala pang malaking taong kakapitan bilang promotor, hilaw pa sa panahon ang pag-aalsa.

5. ESTUDYANTE, dinadaan na lang sa mga text jokes ang problemang nasyunal. ayaw pang makialam. pag me ka-eyeball na sa EDSA, madaling araw pa lang andun na yan, TAMO!

5. PINOY SA ISIP, PERO KULANG SA GAWA – nag-aabang lang ng tamang panahon, ayaw maiwang mag-isa sa EDSA. Sigurista. Ang iba, walang paki-alam. Trabaho lang.

6. KARANIWANG TAO – marami pa rin ang lito, sa dami ng palabas ng malakanyang at batikos ng oposisyon, di na malaman ng marami kung ano ang paniniwalaan. at sila ang dapat nating ipagdasal na sanay bigyang ng liwanag upang mapag-isipan ng mabuti at malaman ang huwad sa totoo.

Maaring mali ako sa ibang nabanggit. Pero kahit pano, makikita natin madilim pa rin ang EDSA. bilang isang PINOY SA ISIP, KULANG SA GAWA, patuloy pa rin akong sumusubaybay sa mga pang-yayari. At sa tamang panahon, sana kasama ko kayo. Ayoko yatang mag-isa!

According to Lacson, Jose Mari Gonzales & now Francisco Tatad said that the tape are authentic. But how can i believe with this people? Sumasakay na naman sila sa isyu. Pogi Points…
Wala na bang ibang neutral person/organization na talagang credible sa pagauthenticate sa tape. But personally i do believe si PGMA yung nasa tape kung hindi tampered yun. Kaso sumasawsaw na naman ang mga taga-oposisyon sa isyu kaya nawawalan tuloy ng credibilidad yung mga nagiging witness. We need to know the truth but we will never find the truth hanggat pumapapel ang mga taga oposisyon dito sa issue na to.
Sana suggestion po sa oposisyon kung yung perang ginagastos ninyo sa pagrarally araw-araw sa kalsada e dinonate ninyo nalang sa mahihirap nakakatulong pa kayo. Halimbawa, Magpagawa kayo ng mga bagong upuan sa mga paaralan tapos para macredit sa inyo isulat ninyo dun sa mga upuan donated by the oposisyon di ba. At least marami pang matutuwa sa inyo at sa next election baka iboto pa kayo ng mamamayan para mapalitan na ang administrasyon. Kaso ang ginagawa ninyo nakakasira din sa bayan eh. Wala na ngang nagagawang maganda ang administrasyon tapos lalo pa kayong walang ginagawang maganda ginugulo ninyo ang kalsada.
I don’t like PGMA and i believe she is guilty of election fraud, but i don’t like more the people in the opposition cause their just thinking of their personal ambition and not for the common people.
Anyway, i believe the opposition is just doing what they need to do, OPPOSE EVERYTHING AND DOING NOTHING. Nice Job.

Sa ating mga karaniwang taong may pakialam sa Isyung nasyunal, nakakagaan ng loob na maihayag ang mga pang-gigigil at mga pananaw sa mga isyung ito, sa pagsulat man o pagsigaw sa kalsada.

Pero minsan, kahit sunod tayo sa isyu, madali pa ring mapaglaruan, dahil ang totoo, bibihira ang pulitikong nagsasabi ng totoo, kaya nga pulitiko. Imagine mong kung paano mag-usap ang matataas na mga taong yan, kung paano manipulahin ang mga sitwasyong nasyunal. Kagaya ng kung paano pinag-usapan ng mga lintek ang pandaraya sa eleksyon, ginagamit ang buong burukrasya sa sarili nilang kapakanan at paglaraun ang karaniwang taong tulad natin. Kanya kanyang gamit ng posisyon para ibsan ang pagkagahaman. Mapa-administrasyon man o oposisyon, me kanya kanyang agendang isinusulong. Maging ang mga cost oriented group, karaniwan ding naliligaw dahil sa mga lider nilang nabibili ng mga pulitiko. Nabubusalan din ng pera ang prisipyong dati’y pinaglalaban.

At sa maliliit na katulad natin, napakahirap isipin kung ano pa ang pinakamabuting paraan para linisin ang buong sistema ng gobyerno sa ating bansa. Ang iisang simpleng paraan natin, ang bumoto, wala ng saysay. EDSA, wala rin. Pakikinabangan lang ng mga negosyante, mga opisyal at pulitikong sumasakay at ng iluluklok na presidenteng wala namang gagawin kundi ang magbayad utang sa mga bwitreng tulad nya.

Ayaw naman nating magwalang kibo, kikilos at kikilos tayo para sa maliliit nating pamamaraan e makatulong tayo sa paglilinis ng mga basura ng lipunan.

At sa mga pangyayaring ito na nagpatotoo ng mga bintang natin sa mga tiwali ng lipunan hindi lamang sa mga taong involved sa Gloria Gate, mas magiging maingat tayo sa pagsuri at patitiwala sa mga gustong maging lider ng bansa, sa pagboto man , o pakikiisa sa pagsigaw sa EDSA.

Sa totoo napakahirap nang ayusin ang gusot ng gobyerno. Pero hangga’t may mga Pilipinong may totoong pakialam sa kapakanan ng bansa, may pag-asa. At higit sa mga lider, ang mga maliliit, maging estudyante, trabahador, o magulang, tayo ang dapat na mas higit ang pakialam, dahil tayo ang huhubog ng mga susunod na lider ng bansa. At siguro mas gugustuhin nating bigyan ng magandang prinsipyo silang nakapila sa paglilinis.

To long71,

Huwag ka mainip kaibigan. Nasa hatching period tayo, kumbaga. Mapipisa din ang itlog, at pag labas ng inakay, sana alagaan nating mabuti…

At kung ako ang tatanungin mo kung nasan si Gloria, nasa isang maliit na sulok na lang siya… ni hindi makapiyok, ni hindi maka kuyakoy.

Sana matuto na tayong lahat pagkatapos nito.

Mano bang lahat sana’y matutong rumespeto sa democratic rights ng bawat isa.

Bagama’t si Gloria ang pinaka malaking eskandalo na nangyari sa pulitika, hindi kay Gloria natatapos ang mga problema natin. Maraming Pilipino natuto nang maging “corrupt”.

Sila pa mismo humihingi ng donasyon mula sa politiko. Sila pa mismo lumalapit sa politiko para humingi ng pabor. Pag eleksyon na, kanya kanya nang padrino ang inaalagaan. Pati yung ilang religious leaders nakikisayaw na rin sa mga pulitiko. Nakikipag power brokering sa mga pulitiko kapalit ng boto ng kanilang myembrong walang kamuwang-muwang.

Ang ating bansa ay isang naging malaking circus kung saan ang maraming tao ay pinili pang maging papet ng mga makapangyarihan kaysa maging tunay na malaya.

Napakalalim ng ugat ng kasamaan sa lipunan. Itanong natin sa ating sarili kung hindi nga ganon. Nangopya ka ba sa eksamen sa eskuwela? Dinaya mo ba syota mo? Dinaya mo ba driver’s license mo? Kakampi ka ba talaga ng katotohanan? May nagawa ka bang pandaraya sa ibang tao dahil sa pera o pabor o dahil tinakot ka? Kumakampi ka ba sa taong mali ang ginagawa just because kaibigan mo sya, kumpare, kamag-anak, ka-relihiyon, ka-alyado sa negosyo?

Buking si Gloria, dapat magresign. Dapat bukingin din natin ang sarili natin kung may ginagawa tayong katiwalian, at tapos magresign na tayo sa katiwaliang iyan. Isuko ang kasamaan sa Dios, lumakad sa pagbabagong buhay, at matutong magtiis sa pag-gawa ng mabuti kahit na hirap sa pera. Kung ganyan lahat ng Pinoy, isang araw magigising tayong mayaman ang ‘Pinas sa pera at kawanggawa.

Honestly, mahirap magbago. Kaya minsan nawawalan ako ng pag-asa sa mundong ito. Naaalala ko kanta ng Apo Hiking Society “Tuloy ang Ikot, Tuloy ang Ikot ng Mundo…”

Hinahantay ko na lang ang pagbabalik ng Panginoon. Pagulo na kasi ng pagulo ang bayan ni Rizal, Bonifacio at Baltazar… sana sandaling panahon na lang bumalik na ang Panginoon habang may nananatili pang matuwid na mga Pinoy.

Haaayy… kung SUSUNOD lang TALAGA tayong lahat sa utos ng Dios sa BIBLIA… baka may pag-asa pa.

long71, wag ka mainip. but be prepared to get disappointed pagkatapos mapatalsik si Gloria.

I believe one of the major factors, maybe the top reason, is that there’s no credible alternative should GMA be overthrown, that’s why the masses are hesitant to move. Changing leaders through people power, if done too often, is not also good for the image of our country, indicative of an unstable government. My wish, which would be close to a miracle, is somehow GMA becomes the reverse ego of herself. That she becomes sincere instead of plastic; that she sends to jail her husband and son (instead of coddling them and pretending that they are innocent); that she start to really care for the country instead of just her pocket, that she starts to believe in God and that she has a soul that would pay for any sins she commits instead of her hedonistic lifestyle.

There are no current alternatives to replace her, but the people can only take so much. Sooner or later, if the people doesn’t sense any concrete, tangible action, she will get ousted and go down in history to be in the league of the likes of Marcos and Estrada (what a shame, a daughter ruining the little legacy the old Macapagal has left for their name).

I want to learn sinu-sino ba ang qualified mapasama sa tinuturing nating CIVIL SOCIETY? Maaari bang sumama diyan sina Jinggoy at Lopi Estrada or maybe even Erap himself? Pwede rin ba diyan sina Imelda Marcos, Ping Lacson, Nene Pimentel, Franklin Drilon, etc.?

Ano ng aba ang tamang kahulugan ng CIVIL SOCIETY. Sa palagay ko, kung ito ay magpu-pwera ng ibat-ibang mga personalidad na walang makatarungang dahilan ay hindi mabuti para sa pagkakaisa ng mga Pinoy.

Mga chong, lalo na sa mga masidhing nagpupunyagi ng CIVIL SOCIETY, ano sa palagay niyo?

Kapit Kamay Paligiran si Neneng

Si Neneng ating Inang Bayan
Malamlam na mata’y ibig lumuha
Sa harap ng salamin, sinisinag
Matimyas na labing malapit nang ngomiwi
Nagsisikip na dibdib lumolobo sa pighati.
Matagal ng di makakilos, di makagalaw
Dating marilag, mahal nating si Neneng.

Sa kaliwa ni Neneng kitang-kita sa salamin
Balot ng liwanag lumuluhang guardian angel
Sa kanan ni Neneng dilim na nakasisilaw
Kumikislap tila kumakaway dalawang sungay
Ng humahalakhak na guardian devil.
Guardian angel, guardian devil sila lang
Ang magkaribal sa palad ni Neneng.

Si Neneng natin na ubod ng ganda
Kutis niya’y makinis, malambot na marmol.
Kinagisnan, nilakihang ugali
Hinhin at bait, mahiyain at masunurin
Hindi naging sagabal sa grano at tigidig
Tumubo at puminsala, pumintog
Nagnana sa mukhang mala-birhen..

Wala yan Neneng, sabi ni guardian devil.
Di pangit yan, masasanay ka rin diyan
Maganda ka at maalam, Cool ka lang
Uling sa mukha na me- make up- pan.
Mahal man sumingil nagkalat ang derma diyan.

Luha’y bilis dumaloy sa pisngi ng anghel.
Para siyang nilumpo ng free will
Diyos ang nagbigay magbuhat kay Adan
Para lahat ng tao mamulat sa kalinga
Maging malaya palayain ng katotohanan.

Walang masabi anghel pinipi ng free will
Kahit gustong niyang isigaw: Come On !
Yang tigidig at grano di maalis yan
Una’y dapat tanggapin, meron ka niyan,
Huwag magtulog-tulogan, humarap sa katotohanan.
Tiris at antibiotics alam mong epek sandali lang
Extreme make over lang epektibong lunas diyan.

Kinalimutan ang sa kanya’y nasa kanan
Sa galit ni Neneng salami’y binanatan
Dagling hinanap placards na nakatago’
nag jeans apurahan hindi na takot sa dugo,
kamao’y sarado, sa barikada’y tumakbo
talagang decidido ipa oopera’t ipabubunkal
Ang kumakalat niyang tigidig at grano
Si Neneng mutya at diyosa ni Rizal
Dating natatanging Perlas ng Silangan
Kapit kamay tayo, paligiran si Neneng.

Inside story to the election. One thing wrong with the Philippine Constitution is the ability to have a vote on a separate President and Vice President from different political parties. Back in the election of Joseph Estrada for President, they already knew that Gloria Macapagal Arroyo as the Vice President will cause them trouble in the future… Hence Edsa II. The run up to the election was another unsavory ploy to paint FPJ as a non citizen of the Philippines. Which was again proven to be another forgery of papers to eliminate FPJ from running for President. How can the Filipinos let this sign pass when this should have been addressed when it was proven that the administration was behind this all along? During the Last Election, the Media was bought by the current administration and a Propaganda for the middle class was perpetrated showing FPJ… the so called uneducated Actor as a joke and as a quick tempered man. The media never fully showed his speeches to the masses where, everyone had a tear in their eye because of how this man, loves his country, wants to see his country prosper, wants to lift the country out of its misery. FPJ took a long time to dive into political scene because he knew how dirty politics was, after all he is one of the reasons why Erap was elected. Problem with Estrada is that he had too many moral baggages that made it a political liablity, hence he was ousted by the Edsa 2 elitist power grab. FPJ, could have rousted the publics distain and called for an Edsa 4, but he had trust in the law. He respected the law even though those who are in power who weild it used it to rob the presidency from him. What saddens me is that he is not here in this world to see and have a huge laugh at what came out of the pandora’s box. From the quick 180 of the powerful during his death in appreciating who he was all along. Talented Actor, not dumb. Succesful movie producer, not uneducated dropout, and golden hearted philantrophist and not the quick tempered man that was shown over, and over again. Now this vindication and hopefully proof that the person in power, all along is nothing but a survialist cheat, that would do anything in this world to cling herself to power. The truth is out there. Is there really a solution that can be made on who should succeed the Presidency if GMA steps down ( or unseated ). Would the Philippines be better off with Noli de Cashtro another administration cronie who will probably follow the same game plan as GMA?
Hopefully the next government if the administration does fall down would move to make sure that by voting for President you include the Vice President and not this potential for power grab system that is in place now.

Da King may be dead, but he is laughing his head out now that the truth is finally out in the open. Da King is dead, Long live Da King!!!

“Una salus victus nullam sperare salutem” -Virgil’s Aeneid [translated from latin.: The one hope of the doomed is not to hope for safety].

Do you really believe that change will just come with a wish?

Do you really believe that justice and truth will triumph without any toil, blood, sweat or tears?

Do you really think that liberty is not fought for with all the might, heart and soul one can muster?

IF you people say yes to these then we are doomed. Doomed to languish in ignominy, to bad governance, to poverty and all its economic ills.

Is that what we the Filipino people want? is that the horizon that beckons to us?

I DON’T THINK SO.

We are in one great fight to make this democracy of ours work. And it all starts with each and everyone of us.

Let us not despair as to the length of time that the evil midget is ousted from her throne. Neither the bad vibes & thought of the veep becoming president nor the stupidity of the whitewash/wag the dog tactics being use right now should hinder us in our work.

We are after all fighting for a better Philippines. We are after all fighting for a better government. We are after all fighting for a better future, for ourselves and our antecedents.

If we seek safety and comfort in the thought that someone or somebody else will be able to do something about our current situation – then we are fools. But if we stand up and be counted, to seize the day and risk everything for what we see as a better Philippines. Then there is indeed hope. We might still have that bright future our forefathers also fought and worked hard for.

Again “Una salus victus nullam sperare salutem”….. In other word – it’s time to get of your butt and kick some ass…..

Let us all UNITE to ABOLISH the COMELEC…

No More COMELEC Commissioners…

No wonder they are called Commisioners…they commissioned money based on the Winners prerogative to give Cash or Kind right?

If you take note: Senate President Franklin Drilon urges Manong Garci to resign last year… pls refer to : http://www.inq7.net/nat/2004/feb/14/nat_3-1.htm …so what happened to that move?

Hanggang salita k lang pla Sen Pimentel and Sen Drilon…Y is it that until now..they didn’t handle well such move to oust and investigate Manong Garci…

If I were to comment on that article in Inq7.net… then Abalos should also be investigated…d porke matagal na ang isang officer sa isang departamento eh we will be going to 100% trust them…

To save expenses daw…too much…

Garcillano as Comelec operations chief …ang kapal… Mr. Abalos…u better Resign too….

Garcillano was assigned to oversee the elections in the Zamboanga peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Socsargen (Regions 9, 10 and 12) were well crafted right… i think Abalos knows all of this fuzz…He is pushing before Dirty Old men who are all CORRUPT…Sir..Pls lang halata tlga yung move ninyo…to cover up this old fellows including Barcelona…

COMELEC is the grand grand grand mother of all corrupt practices in this Land…

Can i ask the help of the PCIJ to give us a brief history of COMELEC…to track the previous Commissioners…their wealth,assets..and etc…and can you guys give a list of people who are most corrupt in our land.

Comelec for me is the Registrar’s department, an entry to Corruption University…where is this University Located? of course in the Philippines..were famous graduate students like… Erap,Marcos,FVR,other noted personalities not posted here will be seen and writtem…Gloria and family will be posted soon…

Maganda ang patakbo sa kasalukuyan ni GMA. Looking forward naman. Kung magpapatuloy na nakaupo si GMA na alam na natin na may kakayanang dayain o lokohin ang taong bayan maliban sa mga jueting at Pidal account scandal ay sigurado rin ako masama rin kahihinatnan natin.

Para sa akin, Duterte muna para linisin ang gobyerno at patinuin ang tao (kung milagro na maupo siya, sana pabitay na niya yung mga corrupt na napatalsik nang people power, including GMA kung sakali). Pag nalinis na ang gobyerno at napatino na ang tao (ok lang mapuno simenteryo basta mawala yung mga walang kwentang tao, at madisiplina ang bayan), panahon na nang matalinong leader na uupo na magpapaunlad naman nang bayan (Richard Gordon).

Kung ang uupo o ipapalit ay takot sa military, walang mangyayari. Ngayon parang sindekato na ang military natin, at ang ring leader ay PMAers. Pag di ka PMA di aangat ranggo mo. Di ko lang alam kung bakit naatim nang mga none-PMAers ito, eh mas marami naman di nanggaling sa PMA…

Unfortunately the replacment for GMA, if the constitution is to be followed, would be worse when it comes to governance. The politcal opposition is also salavating and eager to take power, especially the Estrada gang, whom is dying to flood the our country with shabu (their staple business). Seems the current devil is appearing less evil than the alternative.

If there’s guarantee that either Legarda, Duterte, or Gordon (Dick), would be the replacment, then I support the ousting of Ganid na Glorai (GMA). Bayani for me is no good anymore as demonstrated by the way he managed MMDA (I applaud the way he was cleaning up illegal vendor, the rest are less savory).

Lacson is also no good, he just kept quiet while the Estrada family has been pouring their drugs/shabu all over the Philippines (either he has no consicence or he’s in business with them). His cowardice when Berroya challenged him during EDSA Dos, when Berroya said “Mukhang naduduwag kaya yata Ping”, shows that he is only brave when other people would do the fighting for him (He’s always been know as a coward by the people who are close to him, inner circle. Challenge him to a fight to the death for principle and he’ll finds a way to wiggle out of the challenge, no Rizal quality). This is alot scarier, cowards are the worst person lead this country. They would sell their sould just to save their own skin to get out of a bind.

We should also avoid military rule at all cost. We’ve seen what evil they are capable off during the time of Marcos. They would just masacre and terrorize the people to subjugate them, as the officers controlling the junta enrich themselves.

First thing first, any government official found to have violated laws of the land should be made accountable. Erap made a good example by subjecting himself to all the judicial recourse available and he is as everybody knows it is incarcerated (house arrest) while the plunder case is being heard. Now that is one good example that every leaders should emulate.

GMA is not an exception and she should made accountable and she should stop using the “Presidency” to hide and shield her illegal acts. She shouldn’t use in the pre-text of “destabilization”, “economic sabotage”, “national unity” as a tool to silence her critics. The NBI, DOJ, and BIR are few examples of her tools in reprimanding her detractors. It is scary to think that this same government agency are serving the need of a single person (The President) in the detriment of others. The President is not the “Republic of the Philippines”.

Can PCIJ do a presentation (time-line) events from the tape and vis-a-vis newspaper accounts/article corresponding those events. This will be easier to understand (visually) on how the discussion on the Gloria-Garci tape affect the actual events or how many of it actually made it in the print or picked up by journalist during those periods. A powerpoint presentation would be great.

Bato-bato sa langit; kung sinong matamaan ay wag siyang magagalit…

anu na kaya ang mangyayari pa sa pilipinas??

look at what american democracy has made the philippines into! people power! yeah right! when did our nation’s status quo improved since people power one? in my opinion, everything started to falter there onwards. true, the marcos dictatorship isn’t the ideal government out there. but still, that’s why there is the constitution. we all have to play by certain rules to achieve our goals and motives. otherwise, life would be a disaster.

another would be religion blinding the eyes of the filipino. where in the world do you see a country’s future being decided by it’s “holy men”? at least not in the advanced nations. what had turned out of our religious system was simply a continuation of what the spaniards had left – Filipino priests acting as the new small “Vaticans” influencing philippine governance, which could be compared to Spain’s Monarchy at the time.

“we’ll never understand what those in religious groups think of?” of course we never will! why succumb to religious figures and think of pastors as next in lines to God? religion is simply there to guide the people rather than control them or influence their actions.

“there’s something much more important than our nation?” great! so now you think that there is salvation after life as long as you follow the suggestions of your religious leaders. you no longer think of practical and immediate issues, such as hunger and poverty. and of course, why would you care about this nation should there be heaven after death. Then why vote and influence the electoral process? in the end, you also affect the lives of people with beliefs much much different from yours!

now we have this issue on the wiretapping scandal and people seemed to never learn from history itself. so now we want another people power? “no problem about destabilization and poverty, after all, what we are doing is in the name of JUSTICE, DEMOCRACY, and GOD!” so now we let our pety emotions play over us again?

if one studied history, one should know that the first Filipino constitution as made by Apolinario Mabini had indicated such that only the learned people – illustrados, may have the right to vote. what happens now with our country is that many people think what they’re doing is right, even though it is not. marami sa atin ang nagmamarunong na ngayon. what happens in the end is that we are easily controlled and persuaded by charismatic figures or implusive beliefs such as politicians, religious groups, democracy, justice, freedom. we never thought deeply about the consequences of our action.

pardon me for my tone in this text. however, the crisis in the philippines is no longer limited to small issues such as wiretapping of GMA’s conversations. No matter which politician may reside in the presidency in the following years, can we learn to do things lawfully? orderly? much more important, productively? or shall we once again give in to our impulsive emotions and propagandic slogans of people power, justice, democracy and the like?

GMA’s days are numbered. If the junta pushes through, I hope that the junior officers would have the courage of putting everything in the military right. They should punish those officers who enriched themselves. They are so easy to catch because they are living well beyond their means. The revolutionary government should also go after those corrupt government personalities who enriched themselves in illegal ways. Include those who took advantage while the Marcos’s was fleeing the country (some people I know who did this was working with PAGCOR, they used to rent small apartment and after the EDSA revolution, they are living as though they have won the lottery). Take all of their assets and put it back to the national treasury.

We should watch out for Noli De Castro also, he is well known for extorting money from business group. Those who doesn’t pay up gets bombarded in his TV and Radio programs, and he only quiets down when he is paid. That’s why you would notice that an issue that he discusses passionately in his program suddenly dies out, as if an off switch has been pressed.

ABS-CBN has also been notorious for being bias in politics. They pick a politician they can use, and give that politician their full support (continuous positive media coverage). Then ask for favors when their puppet is put to power. But then again, what do you expect from them? When Cris Aquino scandalized the nation and her family, putting the country to shame to the whole world, what did ABS-CBN do? When Corina Sanchez made a scene at NBI a few years ago, did she get fired for tarnishing her reputation? What did ABS-CBN management do to Julius and Tintin Babao when they’ve had their wedding godparents take care of all of their wedding bills? Willie Revillame? Hmmm…

A lot of Filipinos are jobless, clean-up the notorious government agencies by replacing most, if not all, of the staff and officer in that office. BIR, NAPOCOR, Customs, DFA, DepEd, etc.

It’s sad to know that we used to be the 2nd most progressive country in Asia, 2nd to Japan, and now we are one of the poorest.

Our country is rich with all of the resources we need. Our people are one of the best in the world. We are incredibly rich in natural resources, our land is fertile, are sea abundant (we only need to manage them correctly). If we wisely use these resources, no Filipinos should go hungry. Di bale nang walang high-tech na gamit, de tatak na damit at gamit, basta’t sagana sa pagkain at may matitirahan, happy na kami. We would be very happy if we have our basic needs: food, water, clothing, shelter, transportation, communication, and little time for leisure.

We are at dawn of another eras of Philippine history, a new beginning… would the morning bring the future we have been aspiring for our country, or would this be another replay of the nightmare we Filipinos living through everyday.

Truth Commission is designed as a PGMA propaganda mechanism. Member of the Truth Commission body’s main job description is to orchestrate a show that will make PGMA look like a victim of black propaganda.

It’s part of the Malacanang’s PGMA image rebuilding plan. The body will be formed no matter what. This will be Malacanang’s strongest weapon in keeping PGMA in power.
