Inquirer story

Kung hindi lang buhay ng mga mahihirap na tao ang apektado, maari nang pagtawanan itong mga pakulo ng mga alagad ni Gloria Arroyo.

Kaya lang hindi nakakatawa itong ginagawa nilang kung ano-anong pakulo para lang magkaroon ng rason para magawa nila ang gusto nilang mag-emergency rule o martial law at isantabi ang batas para sila ay manatili sa kapangyarihan habambuhay.

Kanina may ipineresenta silang limang mga sundalo, mga enlisted men at sinabi nila na na kasama raw sa nagbabanta mag-coup. Susmaryosep. Isang sarhento sa active service apat na kaka-discharge lang na enlisted men.

Paano naman mag-coup ang limang yun?

Hindi pa kumpleto ang mga pangalan at ang mga impormasyon kung bakit hinuli itong limang Scout Rangers. Ngunit ang isang pangalan ay Corporal Jaime Dumagpi, nasa active service pa raw.

Pamilyar ako sa tatlong pangalan: sina Sgt. Orlando A. Valencia, Cpl Walter A. Francisco, Cpl Ramon P. Perania Jr.. Tatlo sila sa limang binigyan ng masakit na Christmas gift ni Army Chief Lt. Gen. Alexander Yano.

Kinulong sila ng halos dalawang taon na walang kaso. Tapos, noong nakaraang Dec. 25, inurder na Yano ang kanilang “dishonorable discharge”. Wala silang nakuhang benepisyo sa marami nilang taong serbisyo sa military.

Sinabi ng kanilang abogado, si Atty. Trixie Angeles, na sinaktan raw si Valencia. Ang kumuha kasi sa kanila ay mga ahente Intelligence Service ng AFP.

Nakausap ko ang isa nilang abogado, si Argee Guevarra, at papunta pa lang siya sa kanilang mga kliyente. Illegal possesion of firearms daw ang kinakaso sa lima.

Sinabi nga ng isang sumusunod sa nangyayari sa military na nakausap ko, “Mga Gestapo talaga. Kulong ng walang kaso, dinis-charge sa hindi sinabing dahilan, dinampot ng walang warrant at gagawan na naman ng kung ano-anong kaso. “

Sabi ni Atty. Guevarra, “fall guys” lang itong mga lima. Ginawa lang silang instrumento para ma-extend si Esperon. Mga ilang araw na kasing nagkukuntesan ang mga tauhan ni Esperon magpakalat ng balitang may bagong coup na naman raw na gagawin sa sunod na linggo. Di ba nag-warning pa nga si Gonzalez na arestuhin na naman ang mga media na hindi aalis kapag pina-paalis nila. Nang tanungin si Gonzalez kung ano ang mga “coup plot” na pinagsasabi niya, ang kangyang sagot ay “mass rallies”.

Kapag mag-rally ba kudeta na?

Ang sinabi ni Gonzalez na Jan. 22 ay anibersaryo ng pag-agaw ni Arroyo ng pagka-presidente kay Joseph Estrada noong 2001. Maala-ala natin na nagsimula ang protesta sa rally hanggang nagkudeta na nga si Angelo Reyes, ang AFP chief of staff noon.

Takot si Arroyo na ang ginawa niya kay Estrada ay gagawin sa kanya. Takot siya sa sarili niyang multo.

    I talked with the wife of Sgt Valencia and Cpl. Perania. They haven’t talked with their husbands yet since they were arrested yesterday. Umiiyak nga sila. They live in Bulacan.

    They said the two are working as security for a certain Atty. Arcenas. Bago pa lang sila nagta-trabaho. Paano naman ‘yun mag coup plot.

  2. chi - January 16, 2008 9:28 pm

    Binugbog pa ang 5 fall guys! *&&^%$##$^ !!!

    Gloria should just drop dead! Kung wala siya sa mukha ng Pinas ay walang kontes ang mga tauhang garapal ni Asspweron.

    Who else can we blame for the very unfortunate life of the ordinary and dismissal without honor of these 4 rangers and others if not Gloria! Kung wala si Gloria, wala rin si Asspweron!

    Walang arrest warrant na re-dinakip ang mga dismissed ng rangers. Kung hindi martial law ‘yan, e ano?!

  3. Gabriela - January 16, 2008 9:32 pm

    Malamang planted pa yung AK-47 and dalawang M16 na sinasabi ng mga ISAFP. Magaling sila sa ganoon.

    Mukha talagang gusto nila magkagulo para may rason sila mag-martial law.

    Maiitim ang kaluluwa nitong mga kampon ni Gloria Arroyo.

  4. chi - January 16, 2008 9:37 pm

    Gloria tries so hard to link every imagined coup with Trillanes, a very costly link for Sgt Valencia and Cpl. Perania who just started to live life anew. Pati ako ay naiiyak sa pakulong ito ng mga ulol na Asspweron at siRaulo!
    Shit and mga ulol na ito!

  5. chi - January 16, 2008 9:45 pm

    Kung gusto ni Gloria na magmartial law, why not just make it official, tutal ay hindi na democratic ang Pinas na obvious sa ating lahat at pinatunayan na ng report ng global freedom watchdogs.

    Tingnan natin kung tatagal ang walanghiya hanggang 2010! silang lahat sa EK ang maglulupasay!

    Lahat ng panggagago sa mamamayan ay ginagawa para umabot sa 2010 si Gloria. Si Gloria Arroyo ang tunay na nangangailangan ng extention, hindi si Asspweron!

  6. Elvira Sahara - January 16, 2008 10:15 pm

    We should expect only the worst to come! And now it’s happening! Feeling ko..the end of these atrocities is NEAR…

    Sabi ng kaibigan kong kababakasyon lang diyan: “Walang kuwenta ang bakasyon ko. Extreme poverty, all around ang dinatnan ko! Kawawa talaga ang mga Pinoy na walang overseas worker!”

    SANA magising na ang sambayanan! Huwag na nilang hintayin ang last minute. It might not come anymore!

  7. chi - January 16, 2008 10:37 pm

    Wala ng batas sa Pinas, Elvie.

    Those 4 arrrested former soldiers are already private citizens. Tapos e basta hinila na lang ng walang warrant of arrest just to prove the world that there’s really a plot against siRaulo’s president. Kahit hindi ako lawyer e alam ko na labag ‘yan sa batas. Taris naman talaga, ang daming sinisirang buhay nitong si Gloria.

    The destabilzation is under control daw! E wala pa namang nagko-commit ng destab kaya wala silang patunay na meron nga! I don’t buy even if they said that there is raw intelligence. It doesn’t prove anything! Nasira na naman ang buhay ng mga nagbabagong-buhay na sundalo dahil sa lintek na raw intelligence na ‘yan! Double-double joepardy na ang ginagawa nila sa mga dating sundalo na ito. It has to stop!

    Puro palabas ang Enchanted Kingdom in time for Gloria’s appearance in Davos, Switzerland to present again her doctored economic numbers! She’s just creating a noise for the world leaders in Davos to recognize her pint-sized being!

  8. balweg - January 16, 2008 10:39 pm

    Maám Ellen,

    Praning na si Gen. Esperoni, bakit ang 5 pobreng simpleng sundalo ang pagdiskitahang hulihin at di yong mga corrupt sa AFP na tuta ni GMA.

    Dapat ang unang hulihin eh si Esperoni dahil siya ang supremo ng mga corrupt hello Garci boyz.

  9. mlm18_corpuz - January 16, 2008 10:41 pm

    nagagawa na lahat ni gloria ang gusto niyang gawin lahat na lang inaaresto kawawa naman yong mga walang kasalanan na pinagdadampot kaya tayo ingat baka lahat din tayong mga bloggers dadamputin dapat magkaisa tayo

  10. pedrocarpio - January 16, 2008 10:42 pm

    Kong mag ka totoo man yang sinasabi ni Goon-salez sa coup plot na yan sana maging totoo at dumagsa,dumugin sila ng mga tao hanggang maalis sila sa pwesto.

  11. balweg - January 16, 2008 10:43 pm

    Maám Ellen,

    Gen. Esperon is really a pasaway and the real problems of our society.

    Hulihin ba naman ang mga pobre at bakit di yong mga kurap sa AFP, PNP, Congress and enchanted kingdom.

  12. Etnad - January 16, 2008 10:53 pm

    Kawawang nilalang. Pinaglalaruan sila ng mga walang puso’t kaluluwang mga naturingang opisyal ng ating Bansa na pinamumunuan ng isang sadistang Pekeng Pangulo. Sabagay kahit noong nandaya si Glorya sa eleksiyon ay may iniligpit na din at wala man lang siyang reaksiyon. Naghahasik sila ng lagim (gaya ng pambobomba) tapos idadawit nila yong mga inosente. Diyos namin hanggang saan ang aming pagdudusa.

  13. balweg - January 16, 2008 11:29 pm

    Etnad,

    Pagsubok lang ito ng Maykapal kaya lakasan natin ang ating loob at faith, makakaraos din tayo sa mga trials na ito.

    May bukas pa na nag-aantay sa Bayang Pilipinas at tayo yon na siyang dapat umugit sa ikapagbabago ng ating lipunan, sapagka’t kung iaasa natin sa mga trapo/balimbing na mga pulitiko eh walang mangyayari sa ating lipunan.

    Kailangang mag multiply tayo hanggang makaabot sa iba pa nating kababayan na may puso’t pagmamahal sa ating bayan at kapwa-tao.

    Tuloy ang laban at walang susuko till we meet our objective.

  14. rose - January 16, 2008 11:41 pm

    I just read a while ago..Abante Tonight..that GMA will leave for Switzerland and UAE, Jan. 22 the supposed date for the coup..I didn’t know that Jan. 22 was the day she grabbed the presidency…aalis siya para ipakita na hindi siya takot..nagpapatawa..unbelievable talaga ang tungaw na ito…kung hindi siya takot why not celebrate the day she became president..nakapagtataka naman…

  15. balweg - January 17, 2008 12:05 am

    Rose,

    Sana pag-alis ni GMA eh wala nang balikan pa! Yon na sana ang huli niyang pag-stay sa enchanted kingdom, kasi nga ang dami ng kaluluwa ang nananaghoy sa kanyang kalupitan sa bayan.

  16. grizzy - January 17, 2008 12:25 am

    Unbelievable ang pagka-primitive ng sistema sa Pilipinas. And why are these military idiots now meddling in police work? Tapos ipagmamalaki ni Dorobo na democratic daw ang Pilipinas? Yuck!

    Kawawang bansa! Diyan magagaling ang mga duwag! Mambugbog kasi may baril sila. Alisan mo ng mga baril iyan, labas mga bakla din pala. Baka matapang pa iyong mga tunay na bakla na sumasali sa mga beauty contests!

    On the other hand, bakit hindi humihirit ang mga bar associations sa Pilipinas to stop this stupidity of the Dorobo’s boyfriends in the AFP, et al.

  17. Disappointed OFW - January 17, 2008 12:59 am

    Mam Ellen,
    Pakitutukan nyo naman po ang limang sundalong ito na dinampot nalang ng walang warrant. wag nyo po silang iiwan, ipaalam nyo po lahat sa taong bayan ang lahat ng nangyayai sa kanila. alam naman po kasi natin na napakagaling ng gobyerno at mga kapulisan sa pagtatanim ng kasinungalingan. Nakaka awa naman po kasi lalo na ung kanilang mga pamilya. Nagsusumikap na ngang mabuhay ng tahimik at marangal kahit sa kakaunting kita lang para sa pamilya ganito pa ang gagawin ng gobyerno sa kanila. Kalabisan na po yati ito sa kanilang kapangyarihan.

  18. grizzy - January 17, 2008 1:01 am

    I just finished watching an old Philippine movie, “Ama Namin” depicting the typical rowdy members of the Philippine Military. Nakakaulo ng dugo.

    It makes me grateful that we don’t have such bunch of idiots in Japan, where police work is never left to the Self-Defense Force even during times of natural calamities.

    Dito sumasaludo pa ang mga pulis when they do routine security check. Magalang at hindi bastos! Sa Pilipinas, di mo tuloy ma-distinguish iyong mga alagad ng batas sa mga criminal!

  19. chi - January 17, 2008 1:04 am

    Yuko,

    “On the other hand, bakit hindi humihirit ang mga bar associations sa Pilipinas to stop this stupidity of the Dorobo’s boyfriends in the AFP, et al.”

    Oo nga, I don’t expect the CBCP to go against Gloria, pero ang Phil. bar association, may mga buntot pa ba sila?

  20. rlmacoy - January 17, 2008 1:13 am

    Observation lang po:
    1) Assuming na plotters nga sila for a new destabilization, why is it so early naman ang ginawang arrest? Why didn’t they wait for the big fish to come out?

    2) Can you imagine a five (5) man team overthrowing the government? Not to mention that they’re in the rank and file level. They must have a super power to do that huh?

    3)Parang scripted ang arrest operation. May dala agad uniform para sa mga preso ang AFP intelligence. Agad-agad pinag suot ng pang presong damit ang mga alleged plotters.

    4) Bat yung si Lintang Bedol at Joc-Joc Bolante di nila kayang arestuhin?

    5) Lastly, may FREEDOM or DEMOCRACY pa ba tayong matatawag sa PILIPINAS?

  21. grizzy - January 17, 2008 1:52 am

    Democracy, meron? I doubt! Demo-crazy pihado meron! When people there cannot have equal opportunity to be free from want, etc. unless they get out of the Philippines and try their luck elsewhere, you can bet your bottom dollar, walang democracy! Meron mga magnanakaw! :-(

    My sympathy to all Filipinos! Sabi ng mga gunggong may destabilization daw? Bakit hindi pa ituloy? Kung sinu-sino pa ang pinagbibintangan! Nakakakulo ng dugo sa totoo lang!

  22. chi - January 17, 2008 1:52 am

    Ang 5 akusado ay magku-coup ng walang lider! Puro kabalbalan ang script ni Gloria!

  23. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 1:53 am

    Is the US dumping or about to dump GMA? First, they condemned GMA’s record of human right abuses with many unsolved media killings. Recently, they gave a poor score on RP’s Aviation and asked Americans not to use RP carriers. Now, they drop RP from the list of world democracies. What’s going on? Is this a signal for Filipinos to go ahead in removing GMA? Baka naman ang mga destabilizers na tinutukoy ng Malacanang ay mga Kano kaya lang takot sabihin ng diretso…

  24. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 2:01 am

    Balita naman ngayon isang reporter daw ang tumulong sa pagtakas ni Capt. Faeldon. Sino itong reporter? Ces Drilon, Pinky Webb…sino? Baka naman sabihin nilang si Ellen natin…

  25. grizzy - January 17, 2008 2:18 am

    Baka pinatay na nila si Faeldon, namimintang pa sila. Bakit di na lang nila paghuhulihin ang lahat para sumiklab na ang damdamin ng mga tuod at nagbibingi-bingihan?

    Balita ng kampon ni Gloria na ng 5 raw na magku-coup ay members ng Para Sa Bayan, a group headed by Gen. Lim, a military report said. http://www.malaya.com

    Batalyong-batalyon ang naka-guardia kay Gen. Lim pero nakakapag-utos pala from his jailcell ang Heneral! Ganyan pala kagago ang militar ni Gloria at napapalusutan ng nakakulong na Gen. Lim!

    Unbelievable script about this coup! Enchanted talaga!

    Limang tao, dalawang baril (AK 47 and M16). Anong silbi nung tatlo? Cheering squad? So dalawa ang guilty ng coup, yung dalawa, aiding and abetting, dahil nag-chu-chuchuwa.

    Ay, heheheh! Napatawa mo ako, Atty.

    Kanina pa ako nangungunsumi sa moro-morong ito ng kampon ni Gloria.

  32. Diego K. Guerrero - January 17, 2008 3:19 am

    Esperon’s Gestapo agents don’t care about the rule of law. It appears that the five suspected coup plotters were arrested by ISAFP military agents without warrant of arrest. ISAFP military agents have no business arresting citizens without police assistance and court order. I think any member of the immediate family can file a petition for writ of amaparo. Their civil liberty is violated. It seems that Sgt.Valencia was tortured.

    Part of The Rule on the Writ of Amparo

    SECTION 1. Petition. – The petition for a writ of amparo is a remedy available to any person whose right to life, liberty and security is violated or threatened with violation by an unlawful act or omission of a public official or employee, or of a private individual or entity.
    The writ shall cover extralegal killings and enforced
    disappearances or threats thereof.

  33. vonjovi2 - January 17, 2008 4:08 am

    Eto ay puro FALL GUYS lang dahil para may masabi sila na may COUP “DAW” kay Gloria.
    Masasabi mo na matatalino naman ang mga alagad ni Gloria dahil nakapag tapos sa college at may nakuha pang mga award. Kaso lumalabas na puro pala BOBO dahil kung talagang may COUP “DAW” ay okey na hulihin mo ang maliit na isda at hindi mo na kailangan iparada sa publiko na may nahuli sila dahil kailangan nila mag buo ng ikakaso or ebidensiya sa malalaking ISDA at puwede pa nila magamit na pain ang mga nahuli nila. Pero sa ginawa nila na pinakita sa publiko at nag ingay ay talagang palabas lang ang kanilang ginagawa.
    Kaya puro gago pala ito.

  34. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 4:21 am

    Remember the Erap 5 boys that were illegally arrested to implicate Erap for destab attempt before? They were all released but until now the arresting officers and authorities have not been charged or punished for their action. Fall guys…that’s expected. For every destabilization rumor that Malacanang invents, some fall guys have to be invented too.

  35. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 4:54 am

    Many still don’t know but Erap once tried to abolish the “pork barrel”, one of the main sources of corruption by politicians. Tinangka noon ni da­ting Pangulong Joseph Estrada na i-centralized ang release ng ‘pork barrel’. Inalis niya ang lahat ng ‘pork barrel’ ng mga mambabatas. Ano ang naging resulta? Naging madali ang pangangalap ng lagda para sa kanyang impeachment na nag-resulta sa pagpapatalsik sa kanya sa Malacañang.

  36. juggernaut - January 17, 2008 6:06 am

    What else is new? Gloria and her minions are following the same pattern of self-inflicted controlled hostility characteristic of leaders who want to stay in power.
    The AMBUSH ME of Enrile in the past, the most recent EXPLODING POSO NEGRO in Glorietta, the BOMB ME in batasan, now its COUP ME, add the events in Operation Greenbase and so many others. There’s always some common element in all these, one would be the surprisingly rapid response of the police and intelligence group to apprehend, kill in an encounter, and gather complete evidence or the absence of evidence when and if all reasonable fingers point to the government as the one with the logical motive and means to perpetrate such a crime. Such powerful forces we see at work here, such expert police and masterful intelligence work that it boggles the mind. If we are to believe all these ACHIEVEMENTS, we should be proud of them, we have our own version of CSI, JAG, and PAINKILLER JANE right in our own backyard.

  40. parasabayan - January 17, 2008 7:15 am

    Whatever angers the people, this is what this admin does. It is deliberately doing everything wrong so the people will revolt and the DOROBO will have a reason to have a martial law. But since most of the people are simply TUOD, the DOROBO and her minions will have to stage all the bombings and all other horrible activities to show dissent kuno. Imagine the fast gathering of evidences and arrests after the Akbar incident? In less than a day the police knew where the villains were, had the papers of the motorcycle used(this was obviously a planted evidence)on hand. Everything was orchestrated. Dorobo is worse than Marcos! Afterall, all her consultants now are from the Marcos era (the Tabako, Puno, Enrile et al). These vultures have perfected the crime of conning the Filipinos. For those who helped in installing the DOROBO to power, you can all kick yourselves now or maybe you should all do a “harakiri” instead!

  41. atty36252 - January 17, 2008 7:21 am

    Is it possible to come up with some version of PASS THE HAT, so we can help out the families of these former soldiers?

Tama ka, maliban sa konti na tumutulong sa pagbaklas kay Gloria sa nakaw na trono, karamihan sa mga nagputong sa kanya ng korona ay puro TUOD ngayon!

  43. chi - January 17, 2008 7:29 am

    Jug,

    You could do what Atty is suggesting and I, for one, will do my share, or contact the wives directly nasa Pinas ka pa naman.

  44. grizzy - January 17, 2008 7:45 am

    BB:

    As far as money in the national treasury was concerned, I can bet your bottom dollar, Erap did not steal anything from it. Wala namang kasing mananakaw dahil hinakot na ni Fidel, and not so many countries were willing to grant him loans because of his loyalty to Marcos.

    Lahat ng perang nakurakot niya kung meron man ay galing sa suhol ng mga may gustong ipalakad sa kaniya o gustung gamitin siya gaya ni Singosn. But at least, kumabig man siya, may sini-share naman sa sa mga kababayan niya.

    I know one or two foundations that he financed with his collections because the priest in charge in one is the brother of a nun I work with in some charities. The other was financed with funds collected through concerts, etc. that his wife and friends in the medical field were/are still doing for the poor sans any fanfare and publicity like what the Pidals do while they deplete the treasury of the small collections from taxes and remittances of the OFWs who are being forced now to double their remittances because of the manipulated strong peso kuno.

    Just think of the fake claim of the idiot about a strong Philippine economy with only the OFWs as the main source of income of this administration amidst the economic crisis in the US that is even threatening now even the Chinese of a major recession.

    Erap may not be a genius but he does love the poor. But it is not enough apparently to help his countrymen. He should educate them to know how to fight an oppressive regime back. He may try doing the kind of documentaries that Michael Moore does as a matter of fact. He has the means and the talent for it.

  45. juggernaut - January 17, 2008 7:50 am

    ARAY! Thats all I’ve been doing eversince, Gloria’s mask was unveiled. Forgive me, I thought I was doing the right thing at the time. I allowed myself to be misled. Can we just make up for the wrong we committed by doing something to right the wrong, harakiri seems so permanent and my wife will not let me.

  46. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 7:50 am

    Thanks grizzy. Hello folks, please remember these names who must not be re-elected on elected in 2010:

    Those on the Lakas list are incumbent senators Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Lito Lapid; former Sen. Ralph Recto and former Surigao del Sur Rep. Prospero Pichay. Recto and Pichay lost in the 2007 senatorial race.

    And do you know that Presidential Son, the horse and car smuggler Cong. Mikey Arroyo is being groomed to replace Speaker JDV? That’s why he took a leave of absence from Lakas.

  47. grizzy - January 17, 2008 7:56 am

    One thing I can suggest is for these scapegoats to ask the members of a newly organized human right lawyers’ group for assistance.

    I know they are adopting similar procedures that we have in Japan for instance where lawyers are tapped to provide free services to the needy so that justice may prevail. Money is not even a problem as a matter of fact because help can be coursed through the said lawyers’ association. Problema nga lang kung dukutin iyong mga lawyer ng mga sundalong hoodlum at isa-isang ubusin.

    Same with the crusading journalists who either killed or mudsmeared, even slapped with lawsuits that are in fact infringement of their freedom to do their job, which is to provide news without fear or favor.

  48. juggernaut - January 17, 2008 8:00 am

    Brownberry,
    Thank you for the list. We badly need a list of those politicians that closed ranks to defend GMA so we can have a clear focus on the coming elections. They are probably banking on our penchant for FORGETTING. Do not tire of reminding me.

  49. parasabayan - January 17, 2008 8:03 am

    Yuck!!! Mikey to replace JDV? Garapal na sanggano yan according to those who know him. Manang mana sa mga magulang! Imagine what would become of the TONGRESS? It will be a MAFIA TONGRESS! More corruption, cheating, lying, murder and “hot cars”! Baka lahat ng Tongressmen ay mag-drive ng “Ferrari” na tax free! JDV was worse and if Mikey takes over, it will be worst!!!

  50. grizzy - January 17, 2008 8:06 am

    I did not support EDSA 2 nor EDSA 1 because I believed in an article of faith of my religion that stated/states, “12 We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.”

    I don’t support this administration and I have been a staunch critic of the dorobo because I know she has committed a crime against the Philippines and the Filipino people in installing herself as president with the help of her boyfriends in the now so rotten AFP. It is why I am in this and other forums for Filipinos to share what I can share in the fight against this oppressive regime of robbers and thieves that no rubbing of shoulders with the royalties of Europe, etc. can hide that fact.

  51. grizzy - January 17, 2008 8:07 am

    In short, hindi legal si Gloria Dorobo.

  52. grizzy - January 17, 2008 8:17 am

    I wonder how the itnegs in the PNP and AFP do these arrests. Puedeng mang-aresto sa totoo as in caught in the act, but over where I am based, pag inaresto nila ang isang tao hangga’t hindi nakakakuha ng formal warrant from the court, hindi pinoposasan ang kahit na sinong suspect dahil pag nalaman kasi ng bar association kung may kahit isang breach in the criminal procedure, dismiss ang kaso. Iyan ang advantage ng pagkakaroon ng court na pati mga judges ay may pagka-activist. Tapos may kultura pa ng nagsu-suicide. Pihadong ubos ang mga kurakot!

    Sayang walang ganyan sa Pilipinas. I mean iyong nagsu-suicide. Dapat iyong Dorobo at mga kasama niya tumalon na lang Quezon Bridge at magpakalunod doon sa mabahong ilog.

    Sobra na, kalusin na!

    PSB, alam mismo ni JDV na inuunggoy siya ni GMA. Ang hindi ko lang maintindihan ay kung bakit hindi makapalag si JDV eh may malaking alas siyang hawak sa mga kalokohan ni GMA. O baka naman may pinanghahawakan din sina GMA ang mga baho ni JDV? If I were JDV before I’m removed as Speaker, I would tell the people what I know about GMA. Bahala na…patayan kung patayan!

  56. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 8:43 am

    Rose, sabi na nga ni grizzy na hindi tutoong magkaklase sina GMA at Bill. Baka one class o one subject lang, ginawang big deal na ng babae. Even if Hilary wins, I don’t think she would continue to support someone like GMA who smells like shit. Personally, walang pakialam si Hilary sa pangit na pekeng pangulo ng Pilipinas. But when it comes to the US foreign policy and their business and military interests, ibang usapan na iyan.

    In defense of those who installed Gloria to power, we didn’t know this would happen. We just knew that something had to be done and did it, not just talked about it. The anti-tuition fee hike rallies in the university, all the rallies of the past, the EDSA 1, the EDSA 2, we were part of it because we believed in change. Do not take it against us if we believed in actually ACTING on what we believed in. Its unfortunate that age has slowed us down at this time, I pray that the younger generation will do much better. Marcos had to go, Erap had to go, now Gloria has to go, its as simple as that. These leaders were given the opportunity to lead us, they contributed what they could (there are good contributions kahit papano), and along the way they faltered, this may be due to some personal weakness or a faulty political system, bottomline is that we are continously trying to improve – and thats what counts.

  58. juggernaut - January 17, 2008 8:48 am

    Jug: Thank your lucky star because had you remained as opisyal ang buhay mo ay pakapit kapit sa politicians for promotions..hindi ba? That’s what a friend told me then (he was a PMAer..pag graduate mo daw sa PMA second Lt. 4 years after lst Lt. and after 4 years capt..pag kapitan ka na bahala ka na sa buhay mo kaya kumapit ka na sa isang politico o isang general and live happily ever after..

  69. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 9:47 am

    Yes Rose…ang dating PC ay PNP na ngayon. It seems you haven’t been home for a long time. Bagay yata kayo ni Jug…both of you are in the same bracket. Correct ka…a fresh PMA graduate is commissioned as Second Lt., then gets promoted every 4 years. But all these are gone when GMA became the illegal President ’cause there are officers who got promoted every year just by kicking her ass.

    Rose, FVR was only Vice Chief of Staff of Marcos while it was Gen. Ver who held on to the Chief of Staff position for so many years. Iyan din ang isang dahilan kung bakit nag-traidor si FVR sa pinsan niyang si Marcos. Ayaw i-promote ni Marcos si FVR dahil siguro walang tiwala din si Marcos sa sariling pinsan. Hindi nga siya nagkamali. Traidor si FVR hanggang ngayon.

    Was FVR Cory’s Chief of Staff? Maybe only briefly after Cory was installed. I know it was then Gen. Biazon who was the AFP Chief of Staff. FVR was the PC Chief during Marcos time and never became AFP Chief of Staff. It was always Gen. Fabian Ver.

    Two things could happen to the guy: Either dead or alive. If he’s dead, they would say he has died while resisting arrest or committed suicide inside his cell at ISAFP. If he’s alive, he would be tortured into being as state witness to testify against the other four. Such trick has been done many times in the past and would still be done by these AFP goons.

    Obligadong paaminin si Corporal, dahil siya lang ang active. Kung hindi siya kasali, walang coup, dahil discharged na ang apat.

    A coup requires that the participants are from the military, police, or holding public office or employment. Patay. Kulang na naman sa rekado ang niluluto.

    Kapag hindi umamin si Corporal, walang coup. Wala ring rebellion, dahil walang public uprising. Puwedeng mag-bail ang apat. Back to the drawing board ang mga tangang cook.

  87. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 11:05 am

    Grizzy, I beg to disagree. FVR was the PC Chief and AFP Vice Chief of Staff, not AFP Chief of Staff. Bise lang siya. Si Gen. Ver ang AFP Chief of Staff ni Marcos. Pinuno ng Philippine Constabulary si FVR at Bise ng AFP (overall Armed Forces) at si Gen. Ver naman ang siyang AFP Chief na kabuuan.
    So, FVR had always been under Ver. Kaya nga nagalit dahil hindi kailan man ginawang Chief of Staff ng AFP ni Marcos.

  88. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 11:08 am

    Atty, if you notice the strategy of this GMA government, witnesses are either bribed to retract their statement, bribed to testify as witnesses, killed or if they cannot be killed their family members are kidnapped to use as leverage/blackmail. These have been going on for almost seven years.

  89. parasabayan - January 17, 2008 1:18 pm

  91. we-will-never-learn - January 17, 2008 1:37 pm

    Destabilize or Democracy which is it?

    What Filipinos should understand is that we are victims of the following :- .
    Ever-worsening poverty.
    All politics, no statesmanship.
    Systemic corruption.
    Lack of Discipline. Education.
    Desperation. Frustration. Anger. Apathy/Indifference. Social cancer.
    American; Chinese; Japanese; Korean and All Foreign domination.
    Escapist religion.
    State-sponsored terrorism: military and paramilitary.

    So far we have experienced the following :-
    People Power. Charter Change, Parliamentary System attempts. Coup d’etat. Transitory council/government threats. Bloodless revolution. Bloody revolution.
    Nothing worked because we lacked a transparent National Plan that everyone understood, trusted and would follow.

    Most people I come across in the barrio (and the majority of people reside there) spend much of their spare time viewing television but unfortunately not political news or education but more of the Wow Wow Wee, Boy & Kris, Wheel of Fortune variety.

    We need to look inward and realize some unpleasant truths about ourselves as Filipino individuals and as a society.
    Because poverty is our main problem not corruption, it is so ingrained It involves a “shaking of the foundations” even “rocking the boat” since it requires us to question our leaders on our traditional beliefs and assumptions. Do we honestly believe it is a good idea to export all our top workers in which we have invested huge sums of money in educating them just so that they will downgrade their qualifications to get employment that their government cannot or will not supply them here in their own country where they should be with their family and loved ones.
    We need to try to understand ‘why we are what we are’, where we can or should be headed and how we must learn to adjust to other cultures’. We can look at what adjustments other successful countries surrounding us have made, then we can formulate a transparent comprehensive national plan to attain where we can or should be in clear language that the public can understand and follow. Then have the discipline to follow the plan.

    In short, stop the crabpot mentality in pulling down your neighbor. Look around you and assist your neighbor who is in poverty and in need of assistance from us, you and me. We need to be the ones to reach out to them to bring them up ro our level.
    Our collective reward will be to have a truly great Philippines again successfully competing with neighboring countries.
    But make no mistake there needs to be a change of leaders and their stale ideas which will benefit all level including the poverty stricken, we need a new group of leaders that are trusted by the people ready to breathe fresh air into our souls.
    Lead on and we will follow.

    I suggest the wives of those soldiers not being tortured to a crime they have not committed (parang Minority Report ang dating ha) to get ahold of the lawyers of Gabriela. They may ask for the newly organized human right lawyers association to defend their husbands, who the lawyers should demand to be turned over to the civilian prosecutors, etc. since they no longer are serving as soldiers of the AFP, and even if they do, they are supposed to be tried by a civilian court.

    Dapat diyan sa mga pinaupong mga lawmakers, sipatin ang mga batas ng Pilipinas and correct the mistake of leaving police works to the military dahil in principle hindi naman military rule ang Pilipinas kahit na may bobong akala niya reyna siya na siya.

    Halos lahat ng sektor sa ating lipunan eh sinalaula na ng gobyernong Arroyo (pati na ang Media), next time isusunod na rin nila ang mga OFWs kasi nga po eh heto at maliligalig na ang karamihan dahil sa epekto ng paglakas kuno ng Peso against US$.

  109. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 8:51 pm

    Ellen, in an interview with Gen. Razon, Pinky Webb tried to extract from Razon who the reporter is in vain. Tanong ni Pinky kung lalaki o babae, kung radio reporter o taga-TV…ayaw sagutin ni Razon at sinabi lang na hindi niya puwedeng i-reveal dahil the investigation is ongoing. Sa inis ni Pinky, binara niya si Razon kung bakit ngayon lang lumitaw ang ganyang kuwento eh matagal na iyong Manila Pen incident. Sagot ni Razon alam na daw ng media kahit noon pa kaya lang hindi binigyan ng pansin. Buwelta ni Pinky “Sir, ang natatandaan ko lang sabi ninyo may suspect lang kayo…tapos ngayon tutoong meroon.” Hindi na nakasagot si Razon. Pinky has all the reasons to know who the reporter was since Pinky herself was there at the Manila Pen.

  110. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 8:57 pm

    Grizzy, I believe you when you said there was a letter from your father to FVR addressing him as Chief of Staff. But it was your father’s to FVR not FVR to your father. So, I think your father could have wrongly addressed FVR. Having said that, sometimes some people address Vice Chief as also Vice. There are those who address Cabinet Undersecretary as Secretary or so on. Okay lang iyon. But as to my knowledge, FVR was never AFP Chief of Staff of Marcos but Vice. Iyan nga ang issue noon. Gusto ni FVR na maging Chief pero hanggang Vice lang ang ginawa sa kanya ni Marcos. FVR was the Chief of Philippine Constabulary under the over-all command of Gen. Ver who was the AFP Chief.

  111. Ellen - January 17, 2008 9:03 pm

    FVR became acting chief of staff when Ver went on leave because of the Agrava Commission investigation on the Aquino assassination.

    When Ver was cleared, he re-assumed the top position in the AFP.

  112. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 9:10 pm

    Oh yes…thanks a lot Ellen. FVR was acting Chief of Staff for a while. Pero iba ang acting sa tunay na Chief of Staff di ba? If the Chief is absent, the Vice takes over. But for the record, FVR was never AFP Chief of Staff since anyone can be designated as “acting”. That now puts closure to my discussion with grizzy about the matter. Thanks for coming to our rescue in time. Where you already a journalist at that time Ellen?

    Dapat talaga na binabara ng mga journalists ang mga Sekyu ni Gloria. Ah, si Ellen nuon pa ay deretsahan na ‘yang magtanong, walang takot.

    Kung meron talaga na press member na umayuda kay Capt. Nick, matagal na nila itong binitbit! Kaso ay wala silang magawang scapegoat, unlike in the military, dahil mag-aalsa ang local media at susunod ang mga kapatid nila na foreign journalists. Takot lang ni Gloria at Razon!

  115. grizzy - January 17, 2008 10:13 pm

    Thanks, Ellen, for the clarification. I knew FVR was a top brass at the AFP. Sila nga ang nakakutsaba ni Enrile. Marcos forgave Enrile but never FVR even when the relationship between the two is much nearer. Enrile. I understand, was also remotely related to Marcos. Pero nagtrayduran ang magkakamag-anak. Yuck!

  116. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 10:35 pm

    Thanks grizzy too. I must admit I don’t have all the info; and Ellen was so kind to clarify that. It now appears that at the time your father wrote FVR, FVR was the acting AFP Chief. Simula noon puro acting na si Tabako. I don’t blame Marcos for not trusting this ungrateful cousin.

  117. grizzy - January 17, 2008 11:01 pm

    Unbelievable talaga ang incompetence ng mga ungas. Wowowee! Kapal talaga! Walang ebidensiya dinakip! Tapos may nakuha daw na baril doon sa mga active na sundalo. Gago pala sila e. Natural active duty pa at hindi pa naman nadi-discharge iyong mga hinuli, may baril pa sila. Common sense naman please! Nahahalatang hindi puedeng pagtiwalaan ng buhay ng mga pilipino in times of war itong mga sundalo ni Dorobo!

    Aalis daw ng 22 Jan. para kung sakaling magkatotoo ang sinasabing destibilization, takas na siya kasi baka nga naman sa inis ng mga magra-rally nga naman ay bumanat na sila ng todo! Sana nga! Sarap sanang magmura, pero New Year’s resolution ko walang PIN or Ukinana

  118. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 11:09 pm

    Eto pa ang nakakatawa (hindi nakakapagtaka): When those guys were caught, the weapons were allegedly wrapped with the front barrel of the guns showing. Mga gago itong bata ni Esperon: Bakit ibabalot ng mga sundalo ang mga baril? And what a coincidence na nang nahuli ay ganyan? Planted…that’s all I can say!

  119. grizzy - January 17, 2008 11:26 pm

    Sinabi mo pa, Chi. Iyong part Japanese nga na tatay ko sabi huwag kaming lalabag sa batas, and uphold the Constitution. Sabi niya, kapag lumabag sa batas, forfeited na raw ang right ng isang mamamayan under the law that he/she breaks. Iyan daw ang tamamgang prinsipyo ng pagsunod sa mga batas ng Diyos at ng tao. Shocking nga na pinapayagan yurakan ni Talandi na Dorobo pa ang Saligang Batas ng Pilipinas! Tindi ng kapal ng mukha!

  120. grizzy - January 17, 2008 11:32 pm

    Eto pa ang nakakatawa (hindi nakakapagtaka): When those guys were caught, the weapons were allegedly wrapped with the front barrel of the guns showing.

    Bwahahahahahaha! Naalala ko tuloy iyong pansit na binibili ng tatay ko sa favorite niyang pansiteria sa Claro M. Recto bago siya umuwi nakabalot sa dahon ng saging at Dyaryo.

    Tapos may nakita ako sa may tulay na mama, may dala ding nakabalot. Tinapon sa ilog. Nagulat ako, pero sabi ng kuya ko tekla daw! :-P

    I wonder. Anong klaseng balot ang ginagawa ng mga gunggong sa baril. Parang pansit ba?

  121. Brownberry - January 17, 2008 11:35 pm

    “Estrada pardon helped pull down RP democracy rating”

    Iyan ang gustong palabasin ng iba at si Erap na naman ang sinisisi. On the contrary, Erap’s pardon has increased GMA’s popularity rating from minus (-40%) to now -39%.

  122. grizzy - January 17, 2008 11:37 pm

    Hindi pala Claro M. Rector ang tawag noon sa kalyeng iyon kundi Azcarraga. Taragis baka pag naging reyna si Doro palitan na naman ng pangalan iyong Mendiola at gawin niyang Dadong Macapagal na naman ang kalyeng iyon. Pati nga lolo at nanay niya may mga kalye, boulevard, etc. na. Iyong Balara Filter nga balita ko nakapangalan na sa nanay niya na wala naman ginawa kundi ipinanganak ang isang tapalaning katulad niya.

  123. grizzy - January 17, 2008 11:40 pm

    Siyempre pirming may scapegoat. Kulang na nga lang lagyan ng bigote si Gloria Dorobo ala-Hitler na ginaya kay Charlie Chaplin! :-P

  124. rose - January 17, 2008 11:56 pm

    Ellen, thanks for the clarification on FVR..nalilito lang kasi ako sa rankings and promotions sa atin. alam ko lang pag-kamag anak malaki ang chances at mabilis ang chances..if I remember you covered Malacanang at the time. You mentioned the libel suits- the media intends to file..ano na ba ang nangyari sa class suit ninyo vs. Mike Arroyo…any developments? mukhang tahimik kasi siya..

  125. grizzy - January 18, 2008 1:34 am

    When Gudani, et al were told that they would not get any pension or benefits when they retired for not cooperating in protecting the vested and selfish interests of Gloria Dorobo, then Senator Lim started a fundraising campaign for them. Iyong contribution ko ipinadala ko through a friend. Ewan ko kung diniliber in my name. OK lang kahit hindi. Konsensiya niya na iyon kasi alam ko naman nakalista na iyon sa langit kasi God knows all! OK sana iyong suggestion na ipadala ang tulong through the lawyers of the 5 soldiers, et al. Problema sino ba ang mapapagkatiwalaan sa kanila? Alam ko si Ellen, ayaw makikialam sa collection. OK iyan kasi mahirap nang mapagbintangan kung magkaroon ng dudahan.

  126. parasabayan - January 18, 2008 6:52 am

    I am happy for the two released enlisted men. I met a few of these men in Tanay a while back. They were telling me how they were incarcerated without any cause. They just happen to be under General Lim. They narrated how they had to wait for the rain to stock up water to bathe and wash their clothes. They were in a detention cell which was so open and large mosquitoes feasted on their blood daily. Provisions were scarce. Most of them, if not all were not even seen by their families since they were incarcerated for lack of funds. These incarcerated enlisted men were not even paid 10000 each! They were sporting very long hair and almost a hermit like look. When the marine officers joined them, they finally had potable water and more provisions. Kawawa talaga itong mga ito and then to be picked up and charged anew for “alleged coup plotting” is just too much! This is how asspweron treats his men. If ever they turned against him, he so deserves it!!! and I hope more plots from these men(if ever they are true) should be hatched para matapos na ang kayabangan ni asspweron. Matakot ka asspweron sa ginagawa mo sa mga sarili mong tao. An animal eats its own. That is what you are-HAYOP KA TALAGA!

  127. juggernaut - January 18, 2008 9:17 am

    hi guys,

    I sent an email to Ellen, she will forward them to you, please check it out. Also, my email address will be there also, once we have everybody’s email I’ll send you a link to my Friendster site so you can at least see my picture (please don’t get disappointed, I’m not a hollywood material hehehe).

  128. AdeBrux - January 18, 2008 9:34 am

    Hey Jug, did you send it to me too?

  129. Valdemar - January 18, 2008 3:30 pm

    BB,
    Nixon and Clinton were pardoned. Did that affect the democracy knot of the U.S? Estrada was pardoned and we are nuts.

    We have people that overseer our pilots, our mariners, our professionals but they are themselves not qualified. The govt earns so much so why not get the real McCoys and pay the international rates to keep them there. Kaya tuloy masabi ko na wala talaga tayong pakinabang sa economic gains dahil kinukurakot lamang, pati yong pinagmamalaking OFW dollars.

    The 15K rent is being paid by AFPIntel and the five were used unwittingly to present a destabilizing atmosphere for whatever purpose it could serve. The intel funds on the 2008 program is on the pruning block.

    That fetus will surely be blamed on the ladies of the press. They couldnt blame it to the president.

    Jug,

    I couldnt lie about my age, but remember me better as the voice of experience.

  130. migelle - January 18, 2008 4:05 pm

    sana lang mas unahin nila ang mga bagay bagay na mas maraming mabibigyan ng benepisyo. katulad nito:

    Power Sector Reform Blog Launch

    Bukidnon Rep. Teofisto “TG” Guingona III has formally launched his power sector reform blog. Entitled NAKUPO (http://www.nakupo-nakupo.blogspot.com/), the blog seeks to be the internet site for Rep. Guingona’s advocacy to bring down electricity rates. His major advocacy includes the Privatization of the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) and the full implementation of the EPIRA law.

    In his previous policy adovacy statements, he sees the NAPOCOR as a mafia controlling the price of electricity by having a virtual monopoly on power generation.

    The blog includes newspaper articles quoting Rep. Guingona’s statements. It also includes transcripts of radio interviews he made in the course of his advocacy. Also available are the two major privilege speeches he made on corruption and questionable dealings of NAPOCOR and that of the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation or PSALM, the agency tasked to privatize NAPOCOR’s assets.

    It is envisioned that with the blog, Rep. Guingona would reach more online citizens, including the private sector and civil society groups with the same concern for lowering of electricity rates.

    The blog will also be Rep. Guingona’s way of building bridge with the more powerful consumer rights blogs which could provide pressure to national government officials to seek meaningful reforms in the power sector.

    mas makakatulong ito sa ating lahat… sana mas supportahan ito at itigil na ang mga destabilisasyon. magtulungan na lang tayo sa ibubuti nating lahat.

  131. balweg - January 18, 2008 4:26 pm

    RE: “Estrada pardon helped pull down RP democracy rating”

    Hi Browberry,

    This is a wrong perceptions kasi nga si JEE ang biktima dito at ang Masang Pilipino, not those who helped GMA to kick-out Erap from Malacanang Palace.

    Actually, dapat lang nilang palayain si Erap at ibalik sa Malacanang pero suntok ito sa buwan. Moro-moro lang ang ginawa ng Sandigan ni Gloria, kasi nga eh 2 cases na guilty siya eh puro bogus.

    Right now, isang katutak na problema ang dulot sa bayan nitong si GMA. Siya ang ugat ng lahat ng problemang ito at si Erap eh lalong napapamahal sa Masang Pilipino.

  132. Brownberry - January 18, 2008 8:55 pm

    Ka Balweg & Valdemar, let’s just say that they are scared of Erap who remains to be loved and adored by the masses. After his pardon, his popularity increased. Even while detained in Tanay and not seen by the people for six years, his rating consistently was much higher than this GMA or anyone. Kaya nga ngayon nasa labas na siya, lalo silang natakot. We keep reminding Erap to be very careful. If they cannot destroy him through media, they will try to silence him in many other ways.

  133. balweg - January 18, 2008 10:56 pm

    Brownberry, hoping na ang media eh natuto na sa leksyon na ginawa sa kanila ni GMA. Ipinahiya sila sa buong mundo at i do believe that this is a reconcilation time with Erap camp, kasi nga di ba ang media (not all ha!) ang nag demonized kay Erap kaya lalo siyang idiniin ng gobyernong Arroyo sabay kambio at pinalaya pero guilty.

    Ang PCIJ ang number 1 media entity ang ginamit ng gobyernong Arroyo para wasakin si Erap, datapwa’t ang tanging nagtanggol kay Erap eh The Daily Tribune at Malaya, kaya ito lang ang binabasa kong newspapers.

    We are hoping na ang nangyari sa mga taga-media natin eh isang leksyon na dapat wag pagagamit sa mga ganid sa kapangyarihan.

    Erap still alive and kicking, lalong siyang minahal ng Masang Pilipino.

  134. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 12:15 am

    Correct ka, Balweg. Let’s hope the media has learned its lesson. It was the media that ousted Erap and helped GMA. With the exception of a few, I can say that the media, the giant networks, many journalists are opportunists.

  135. juggernaut - January 19, 2008 1:46 am

    bb,

    The media helped, but there were other groups, the church, military, businessmen, leftists, rightists, noranians, vilmanians (?) but not sharonians siguro.
    But its nothing compared to the US government conniving with the media to deceive the people to shock and awe Iraq.

  136. juggernaut - January 19, 2008 1:47 am

    The media right now is probably our last line of defense and we’re at the end of that line…

  137. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 2:24 am

    Jug, needless to say, there are many groups other than media.
    It’s amazing to see that these were the same groups that toppled Marcos and Erap…now it’s GMA. Among the three, the groups are much more justified into ousting this GMA…but why is it that they’re getting a hard time to do this? It was easy for them in the first two Edsas…ngayon nahihirapan. Bakit ba?

  138. juggernaut - January 19, 2008 2:56 am

    bb,

    Ayaw tanggapin ang pagkamali nila – in denial, they keep convincing themselves that Gloria is the lesser evil. In short, ayaw nilang tanggapin na isang out-of-school youth like Erap na maging presidente. Yung iba naman, bayad na, busog na, so no complaints.

  139. grizzy - January 19, 2008 6:35 am

    Jug,

    Iba iyong out-of-school youth sa college drop out that Erap was/is. Mayaman ang pamilya ni Erap at kaya naman nilang paaralin siya.

    Atenean nga iyan e kaya lang talagang mahilig mag-artista. Mas magaling nga siang mag-ingles kay Gloria Dorobo na ang tigas ng dila. Kung sabagay, may konting dunong lang ang tao puede namang mag-survive, at doon na lang niya ibuhos ang kakayahan niya sa kung saan siya mag-e-excel.

    I have degrees in History and did training to be a paralegal, linguist, etc. but lately, I have realized that the best knowledge I should seek and have is the knowledge of God, who created all things and must know all things. Sa totoo lang, mas marami akong natutunan ngayon sa pagbabasa ng Bible at iba pang religious books, etc. na available sa library at nabibili sa mga bookstores lalo na iyong pina-publish sa simbahan namin.

    Iyong ngang nagtayo ng Honda, Toyota, etc. dito sa Japan, Grade School lang ang natapos. May basic knowhow ka lang naman, makakapag-aral ka na ng sarili mo. Hindi naman kailangan ang DPhil diploma. Sabi nga ng nanay ko noon sa amin, “Oo nga, may pinag-aralan kayo pero kung bastos naman kayo, wala ring silbi.”

  140. grizzy - January 19, 2008 6:46 am

    Jug: But its nothing compared to the US government conniving with the media to deceive the people to shock and awe Iraq.

    *****

    You can rest assured, Jug, that the whole Iraqi nation is not buying Bush’s gimmicks. Buhay na buhay ang resistance doon sa totoo lang.

    Ang problema ngayon ay ang attempt to start a war on Iran. Kabulastugan na naman ang iniisip ni Dubya. Golly, $486,769,250,980 na ang nagagastos nila sa ginagawa ng mga kano sa Iraq. Mamumulubi nga sila except for Dubya’s famly siguro na nagbebenta ng armas. Wala nga namang guerra, wala silang datong.

    Ang masama pabagsak na yata talaga ang America. Walang tulak kabigin sa mga tatakbo. Kahit si Romney, dismaya ako. Pero he’s better than McCain and Guillani.

    Kawawang Amereica. Siyempre, apektado ang Pilipinas lalo na ngayong, inutil ang mga nakaupo!

  141. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 9:42 am

    US Defense Secretary Gates made a very controversial remark by saying other NATO members are not doing well enough in counter insurgency and jungle type of warfare in Afghanistan. That comment drew a sharp reaction from Canada whose troops are stationed where Taliban has a very strong presence. Ibig sabihin ng mga Kano sila lang ang magaling sa paglaban. Mga ulol !

  142. grizzy - January 19, 2008 10:14 am

    BB:

    Naalala ko ang sinabi ko sa tatay when he addressed FVR as Chief of Staff (AFP) dahil tanda ko 1976 hindi pa siya nakapuwesto as such noon, pero even then, feeling high and mighty na siya gaya noong iba pang kamag-anak ng nanay ni Apo na nakapuwesto lahat. May tampuhan nga sa totoo lang sa ranks ng mga kamag-anak niya lalo na iyong sa Marcos side. Sabi ng tatay ko, pina-flatter lang daw niya si FVR. Personal naman daw ang nature ng sulat niya. Kakatawa, di ba?

  143. grizzy - January 19, 2008 10:24 am

    I’m following up the Caucus. Hati ngayon ang vote ng family ko sa Tate.

    Ang mother ko hindi matinag. Die-hard Republican. Sabi ko na lang, iboto niya si Romney sa Primary sa California. Iyong mga kapatid kong boboto, Democrat. Sabi ko sa kanila iboto nila si Obama dahil wala namang ibang choice, at saka mas sincere sa mga sagot niya di gaya ni Hillary, who is now resorting to mudsmearing pati na ng ka-partido niya dahil desperadong manalo, kahit na sa totoo lang apprehensive ako sa lalong magiging yabang at abuso ng mga itim. Besides, may lahing Hudyo iyan si Hillary.

    I have nothing against the Jews/Israelites as a matter of fact. Sa totoo lang, ang paternal grandmother ko may lahi ring Israel—-descendant ni Joseph who had Egyptian blood. But I hate this Zionism thing being espoused by the Jews.

  144. grizzy - January 19, 2008 10:29 am

    Sinabi mo pa, BB. Kunyari lang ang mga kano. Sabi ng kaibigan kong Afghan mas lalo daw grabe ang pag-encourage ng pagtatanim ng poppies na ini-export sa USA ngayon sa bansa nila. Lalong gagrabe kapag ang mga Amerikano na lang ang matira sa Afghanistan. Sinusuka sila ng mga tao doon sa totoo lang. For more on the struggle of the Afghans sans US propaganda, I recommend this links: http://www.rawa.org

  145. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 10:32 am

    Mabigat ang laban between Obama at Clinton sa Democrats pero sa Republican, kay Romney ako. The next US President will face a very tough time solving the economy. Unofficially, may recession na sa US ngayon. So if I were the TNTs, umuwi na lang kayo sa RP o dili kaya lipat na lang sa Canada, UK, Australia o New Zealand. The US used to be the first choice of those who wanted to migrate…now no more. Buti nga!

  146. grizzy - January 19, 2008 11:06 am

    Sinabi mo pa, BB. Ayoko si Hillary kasi makikialam pihado iyong asawang ma-L. Tawa nga ako doon sa balitang natanggap ko na tinanggihan ng mga students sa Oxford na magturo doon si Clinton on women because of his womanizing track record.

  147. grizzy - January 19, 2008 11:45 am

    Rose:

    PNB is no longer government-owned. It was privatized in 1989 with cronies of Cory Aquino as members of its board. Kaya nga na-question sa Japan ang operation niyan. Hindi kasi puedeng mag-function at mag-deal sa foreign exchange ang PNB, Metrobank and even Landbank. Pero talagang matitigas ang ulo ng mga iyan na lumabag ng batas. Nakakahiya sa totoo lang. Moneylaundering ang operation.

  148. Valdemar - January 19, 2008 1:06 pm

    Sa tutots lang, si Ellen lamang ang medium na lumalaban kay Glory. Tell me who else.

  149. grizzy - January 19, 2008 4:50 pm

    Who else? Si Ka Mentong, Ninez C. Olivares and even Jake Macasaet of Malaya. Kaya nga patong-patong ang lawsuit nila. Ang wala lang sila, a powerful blog as Ellen’s.

  150. grizzy - January 19, 2008 7:30 pm

    Oo nga pala, ang alam ko may home page si Ka Mentong on the Philippine version of LaRouche’s EIR.

  151. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 9:14 pm

    Is Ka Mentong the one who writes for The Tribune, Herman Tiu Laurel? Yes na yes. He’s a fighter. Mainit din sa kanya ang Malacanang. Other fighters are Lito Banayo and Ducky Paredes.
    Pero alam kong maraming columnists at journalists din ang galit sa Malacanang; but unfortunately they have restrictions.

  152. grizzy - January 19, 2008 9:28 pm

    Not Ducky Paredes, BB. Kissing ass na rin ang mamang iyan sa mga Pidal. Nakatikim yata ng grasya! :-P

    Oo nga pala nakalimutan ko si Lito Banayo. May kaso din siya, di ba?

    Yup, walang iba. Ka Mentong is Herman T. Laurel. Hindi attakot, hindi atatakbo!

  153. Brownberry - January 19, 2008 9:53 pm

    Iyan pala si Ka Mentong ang minsan nakita ko sa TV na humiga sa kalye nang pilit na hulihin ng mga Pulis. I think it was during one of the rallies he joined. Ducky Paredes indeed sounds like he’s with the administration, but he consistently writes favorably of Erap. Well, one doesn’t necessarily is a true opposition by being nice to one person. Posible na mabait pa rin siya kay Erap at mabait na din sa mga Pidal. Namamangka siguro…doble kabig. Sayang siya…kung kailan tumanda ng husto saka sinira ni Ducky ang kanyang credibility.

  154. grizzy - January 20, 2008 1:31 am

    BB:

    Hindi siya humiga sa kalye. Nawalan siya ng malay according to a friend of mine who was there. Hindi ko lang narinig kung dahil sa pukpok ng pulis.

    As for Ducky Paredes, sabi niya kaklase daw niya si Erap. Siguro benefactor din niya si Erap kaya mabait siya doon. Pero walang dudang balimbing siya.

    Sayang talaga siya kasi ang mga Paredes tuwid naman. Hindi ko lang alam kung anak siya si Judge Paredes na tatay ng isa kong kakilala na dating asawa ng isang Japanese.

  155. Brownberry - January 20, 2008 1:43 am

    Judge Paredes, ang dating Councilor Paredes ng Quezon City? Kilala ko din iyan. Maybe they are related to Ducky. Pero gaya ng sinabi ko, sayang si Ducky. Si Ka Mentong pala nawalan ng malay at hindi humiga sa kalye, sorry. Pero hindi ba napapahiga ang isang tao kapag mawalan ng malay? He, he…biro lang kaibigan.

  156. TonGuE-tWisTeD - January 20, 2008 2:55 am

    Ang dami pang drama.

    SIGE NA NGA MAY COUP D’ETAT NA!

    O ngayon? E di i-extend nyo na! Kailangan pa ba ng drama niyan?

  157. Yuko - January 21, 2008 2:51 pm

    The Judge Paredes I knew lived in Pasay. He could not be a Councilor of Quezon City. Besides, masaya siya sa trabaho niya as judge.

  158. Yuko - January 21, 2008 2:52 pm

    Wow, nakapasok ako as Yuko! This is from another computer I use. Free wheeler ito. Walang IP address, I guess. Wireless connection!

  159. Yuko - January 21, 2008 2:54 pm

    Hello, General Practician, are you there? Nakabalik ako as Yuko! Himala!

  160. Brownberry - January 21, 2008 10:34 pm

    Maybe it was a different Paredes. Kamag-anak siguro iyong kilala ng pamilya namin na Councilor Paredes sa Quezon City.
