President Arroyo and Cabinet members yesterday walked from the Premier Guest House to the State Dining Room in Malacañang and had their pictures taken for what the Palace said was a “solidarity walk.”

The President and her key officials usually walk to Guest House, which is about 50 meters away from the State Dining Room, for the Cabinet meeting. Group pictures are taken before and after the Cabinet meeting which is regularly held at the State Dining Room.

“We went through the process of having all the Cabinet members gather together and have a photo opportunity with the President just to show the people that’s there’s no truth to the efforts of people against her,” said Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita.

He said it was a Cabinet initiative and “it was not even directed by the President.”

Deputy presidential spokesman Anthony Golez said aside acting Higher Education chairman Romulo Neri, who walked beside the President, all Cabinet members joined the walk except for three who are out of the country or out of town.

They are Secretaries Arthur Yap (agriculture) and Jesli Lapus (education) who are abroad and Bayani Fernando, chairman of the Metro Manila Development Authority chairman Bayani Fernando who just arrived in Manila.

The “solidarity walk” was held a day after Ermita released a joint statement of Cabinet officials expressing support for Arroyo, who is subject of renewed resignation calls.

The fresh resignation calls were triggered by allegations of payoffs in the national broadband network project which was allegedly brokered by resigned Elections chairman Benjamin Abalos who allegedly offered Neri a P200 million bribe for the project’s approval. Neri was chairman of the National Economic Development Authority when negotiations for the project, which was later awarded to the Chinese firm ZTE Corp., were being held.

The statement of support followed calls made Sunday by about 60 former Cabinet officials in the Aquino, Ramos, Estrada and Arroyo administrations for the sitting Cabinet men to quit and expose wrongdoings in the Arroyo government.

Ermita said the walk was not theatrics or “drama.”

Ermita said the solidarity walk followed a fellowship dinner he hosted for the Cabinet members Monday. It was at that dinner the Cabinet men signed the statement rejecting the call of former Cabinet men.

He said the dinner was not a loyalty check. It was meant to let the Cabinet men “that everything is okay and we have to show the world that we are together.”

Ermita said Arroyo dropped by the dinner and thanked them for their continued support.

First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo said he and his family are “okay” despite allegations of corruption over the NBN project.

Arroyo, in a blue shirt, jogging pants and running shoes, smiled at reporters and lensmen who were waiting for officials to interview him at the Palace lobby while the Cabinet meeting was going on.

“I’m okay. The family is okay,” he said as he went up the Rizal Hall staircase.

He said he had just had therapy, since he is still recovering from heart surgery last April.

Mr. Arroyo has been accused before the Ombudsman of lobbying for the $329 million NBN contract.

Ermita rejected the term “evil” which was allegedly used by Neri is describing President Arroyo. The description was made public Monday by Rodolfo Noel “Jun” Lozada, the Senate’s star witness in its investigation on the NBN-ZTE contract.

Neri has said he did not recall describing Arroyo as evil.

“Obviously she’s not. My golly naman!” he said.

He said it is difficult to believe Lozada who he said might have some plans or agenda of his own.

“He has his own scheme, grand designs. What else can you expect from that guy? If he’s capable of doing what he did in a bigger sense, I don’t see why he is not capable of saying the same things. Maybe he will say something else in the future. I think we should not dignify that,” he added.

    Funny, that’s exactly what I thought as soon as the picture hit my screen! Hehe!

  2. AdeBrux - February 19, 2008 11:24 pm

    That will be the longest walk.

    My golly naman, Romy. She is! Why so coy about it?

    Heto ang masakit “Edsa II a mistake, says CBCP head
    ‘We went from frying pan to fire’ (tribune.net.ph)

    Same thought…Dapat continous ang rally otherwise she will not be pressured. Now that CBCP called for a “brand-new people power” to address the current political crisis, medyo lalo ng lumakas ang panawagan.

  6. chi - February 19, 2008 11:32 pm

    “Solidary Walk”, show of defeat! Alis dyan na already!!!

  7. AdeBrux - February 19, 2008 11:33 pm

    Re: ““Edsa II a mistake, says CBCP head”

    Frankly, even I could have told him that myself then…

  8. J. Cruz - February 19, 2008 11:33 pm

    I agree 100 percent WITHOUT kickbacks!

    They should have MORE solidarity walks which will be good for their health!

    Wouldn’t it be nice…..

    They seriously consider ONE final solidarity walk all the way out the gate of the Palace….

    Ladies & Gentlemen, THAT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE COUNTRY!

  9. AdeBrux - February 19, 2008 11:38 pm

    Na center of attention si Neri duwag! Hah!

  10. AdeBrux - February 19, 2008 11:40 pm

    Noli de Castro? Is he a member of Gloria’s cabinet now? I thought he was the ‘elected’ VP?

  11. tikbalang - February 19, 2008 11:41 pm

    Sino ang patay at saan makikipag libing itong mga nasa malakanyang? Inuna pa ang mag pa picture habang yung ilibing ay nag hihintay. Masamang senyales ito katapusan na ni Dorovobitch.

  12. Ellen - February 19, 2008 11:43 pm

    Anna, De Castro is Housing secretay.

  13. rose - February 19, 2008 11:46 pm

    Chi: Nakapula si Gloria..hindi ba yon din ang color ni Imelda? But when I come to think of it..red is also the color representing the Holy Spirit..the fire of love..God’s unconditional love..red is also the color of love..kaya nga red roses..ang puso ay red..ang dugo ay red..ang tanong ko lang kay GMA at sa mga alipores ang pag mamahal pa ni Gloria is a fire of love for the people? o sa kanyang sarili? Siya lang makasabi niyan..ang dasal ko lang..”come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of thy faithful.” sana maging faithful si Gloria sa tunay na meaning nang puso..

  14. AdeBrux - February 19, 2008 11:49 pm

    Is that so? Didn’t know – thanks for the info, Ellen.

    Kaya pala nakabili sa Dasmarinas Village ng bahay! Baka kinurakot iyong housing fund…

  18. rose - February 20, 2008 12:01 am

    ..this maybe off tangent pero..narinig ko ang sinabi ng apo at ang anak ni Abalos..bakit daw ikinikupkup ng mga pari at madre si Lozada at familia niya sa La Salle Greenhills ay wala pang evidences..(parang scripted ang words) laban sa Lolo nila (dalawang apo ang nagsalita). At nagsalita din ang anak ni Abalos..what evidences are they looking for?..Most evidences are in the hands of Abalos..and he can give the answers..bakit hindi nila tanungin ang Lolo nila na harap harapan. Why not face the people with the questions they want to be answered sa Lolo nila..si Lozada harapharapan niyang sinasabi na hindi niya alam kung ano any isasagot sa mga anak sa itinanong na “if we are doing the right thing why are we on the run”. May sabi kaya ng apo ni Abalos sa Lolo nila na..if you indeed did they rights thing why all this mess in our lives?” kung may galit sila sa mga brothers sa La Salle di alisin nila doon (lumipat sila sa Ateneo o sa San Beda) ang daming escuelahan..kung may sakit sila ng loob sa Catholic church ni mag Iglesia di Manilo sila (Christians din ang mga iyon)..religion is just a venue to God..kung saan sila comfortable di doon sila..pero if they want to follow the words of Christ..go for the truth, for the truth will set you free..work for justice for God governs His people with justice..hindi mahirap ma intindihan pero mahirap gagawin..isn’t it so Mr. Neri? Mr. Abalos? Madame President? True it puts the strain on the children’s friendship..

    What is utterly gobsmacking is how on earth our politicians, govt officials who started from ZERO, from scratch, with just their pay in their pocket (and some of them dirt poor), became isntant multi-millionaires after a few years in politics and as govt officials.

    How can they justify owning million dollar properties, fat bank accounts, a lavish lifestyle, etc. by receiving what is unarguably low pay?

    I do accept that in a democracy driven nation (ahem!), every single tom, dick and harry has a chance of achieving a lifestyle when he/she works hard for it but by gum when you enter politics, eg., Mike Pidal Jr, straight from some office work and earning a miserly few thousand dollars, how could you declare multi-million dollar assets after a couple of years with an equally miserable official pay?

    Simple arithmetic.

  20. chi - February 20, 2008 12:05 am

    Talaga, Anna.

    He was my distant neighbor before we left Pinas. We were inside a subdivision, and Kabayad was in a Bliss house outside na baku-bako ang daan!

    Tapos, he already have a multi-million house in Dasma while I’m still poor! Unfair! I’m working to death and dollars pa ang salary ko!

  21. AdeBrux - February 20, 2008 12:07 am

    So, question now is how did Kabayan Housing de Castro get his several millions? Even his entire year’s pay can’t buy two brand new cars, eg., Volvo V90 and a Jaguar Executive! Yet he is purported to be owning a house now in Dasmarinas Village! Wow!

    Kgg. AdeBrux,

    Salamat at nagising na sa katotohanan ang CBCP, eh talaga naman sila ang konsintidor na tumulong sa pagsipa kay Pres. Erap.

    Ayon sa Banal na Kasulatan, kung ang sinuman eh nagkasala sa kanyang kapwa-tao eh dapat bago magdala ng kanyang alay sa Altar eh puntahan muna yong pinagkasalahan at humingi ng tawad, ito ang kalugod-lugod sa Kaitaasan.

  23. chi - February 20, 2008 12:14 am

    Kaya pala these corrupt cabinet officials had a “solidarity” walk with the high priestess of evil. They’re so conveniently living with our (taxpayers) money. Hindi pala nila talaga maiiwanan ang bruhang Pidal!

    Hang them all! Or shoot en masse!

  24. AdeBrux - February 20, 2008 12:16 am

    Chi, just incredible.

    That’s why I said, I will NOT BELIEVE anyone in Pinas who rose from rags to riches while claiming he/she was clean! No way! Absolutely no way!

    Like you, even me! I work part time and I make a lot more than what Kabayan makes in a year yet I can’t pretend to be as rich as this fellow Noli de Castro (and I bet my family in the Philippines started off “richer” in life than he did).

    Reason is I’m not kurakot!

    Also, Chi, even with my husband’s annual income which is already the equivalent of several (I mean several) years of Kabayan’s salary, we will be hard put to buy a Dasma house worth more than 4 million dollars. Imagine this VP de Castro is by all account richer than the president of France or the French prime minister and richer than most of the French or UK cabinet officials who did not at all start life by being poor!

    Any European will be gobsmacked at our government officials’ and politicians’ brazen display of corruption!

  25. AdeBrux - February 20, 2008 12:24 am

    Balweg,

    Sorry pero ano ba ibig sabihin niyang Kgg. AdeBrux?

  26. balweg - February 20, 2008 12:31 am

    Ibig sabihin Kgg. AdeBrux eh kurap din yang si Kabayan, magkano ba ang kanyang sweldo at nakabili siya ng mga tinukoy mo na only rich and underworld criminals can buy or acquired it.

  27. balweg - February 20, 2008 12:35 am

    AdeBrux we are using this word “Kgg. meaning, Kagalanggalang” if we are making a formal Tagalog letter address to a respected and/or Honorable person et al.

    I used this word to ALL of you as a sign of respect bilang ka-Ellenville fellows.

    Ah, ok. Thanks, Balweg.

  30. Toney Cuevas - February 20, 2008 12:43 am

    The title of the subject should’ve been, “Desperation Walk”, instead. Or, “The Brown Bags Gang of Thieves”. Only a wish of mine, perhaps, one or two TNT could’ve stop corruption at the stinking Pasig River, at least for awhile, anyway. And, it would be nice if only we’ve the power to confiscate the private bank accounts of those thieves walking with “dimonyong Gloria. My opinion, probably, enough to pay for the Philippines national debt, and rescue the future of the new generation. But, the truth is, dimonyong Gloria is much smarter that many of us than we given credit, since bogus Gloria still stinking the stinking Pasig River as the testimony to the fact. What happen to the ulan or bagyo when you most need it?

  31. grizzy - February 20, 2008 12:44 am

    She may just as well enjoy her fake solidarity walk, for I bet you, her companions may be just as nervous, for soon, no doubt about that, the idiot will be having her solitary walk. That will be the day, and soon, very soon, let’s pray!!! Tulog muna ako!

  32. grizzy - February 20, 2008 12:45 am

    I surely would like to sing the idiot the song, “I Walk Alone” or something more poignant! Ang pangit ng mukha pag naiirita ang ungas. All the more reason why we should all try to “kunsumi” the idiot!

  33. Toney Cuevas - February 20, 2008 12:46 am

    Red dress would’ve been an easy target, if there is only a Toro at the site…Did anybody ordered the kidlat while the Brown Bags Thieves are walking?

  34. grizzy - February 20, 2008 12:47 am

    Trying hard na magsipsip si Neri. Kaya I doubt that he is Cayetano’s mystery man. I bet you, the criminal will again invoke her EO666! :-P

  35. Toney Cuevas - February 20, 2008 1:05 am

    I counted exactly 25 Brown Bags magnanakaw sa litrato, aka modern isla Pilipinong Alibaba. If only the Ombudsman people are not owned by dimonyong Gloria, they could’ve a grand time checking the moderare greed or patriotic money lifestyle of each one of them Alibaba.

  36. grizzy - February 20, 2008 1:14 am

    Kundi ba namang idiotic, bakit nagprusisyon pa. Look at the Malacanang staff, nakasilip sa bintana, etc. Hindi lang makahagikgik sa tawa sila kasi baka pagalitan sila, but I bet you tawang-tawa na sila kasi parang mga gago’t gaga na inuuto ng isang sira ang ulo! Trying hard to amuse the demonya for how much, I wonder! Grrrrrrrrrr!

  37. grizzy - February 20, 2008 1:17 am

    Hindi kaya kinikilabutan ang mga ungas sa ginagawa nilang pang-aaliw sa pag-aalburoto ng inutil na lukaret na iyan? Ano kaya ang sabi ng mga pamilya nila? “Daddy (Mommy) malaki ba ang kinita mo sa paglakad mo?” Bwahahahahaha! Makatulog na nga….

  38. chi - February 20, 2008 1:51 am

    Inamin ni Ping Lacson sa kanyang column sa http://www.Abante-Tonite na sinabi nga ni Neri na si Gloria ay evil.

    Part of it: “Marami pang nabanggit na katiwalian si Kalihim Neri, at tinalakay din kung paano “binubusog” ni Ginang Arroyo ang mga pulitiko sa Kamara at sa mga LGU’s. Nguni’t kami’y lubhang nagulat ng kanyang tinukoy si Ginang Arroyo bilang “evil”. “She is evil”, ang sinambit sa harap na­ming ni Neri nung hinihimok naming siyang magsalita na ng buong katotohanan sa Senado. Malungkot ang mukha niya nang kanyang sabihin ang mga katagang iyon, at tiyak na hindi nagbibiro.”

  39. balweg - February 20, 2008 1:59 am

    RE: Red dress would’ve been an easy target, if there is only a Toro at the site…

    Kgg. Toney Cuevas, ang galing mamili ni Tita Glo ng kulay at RED pa….eh tapos na ang lahi niya dahil humanda siya sa bata-batalyong TORO ang ready to invade her EK.

  40. grizzy - February 20, 2008 2:03 am

    Chi,

    It’s an open secret na EVIL si Dorovobitch kahit noon pang bago iyan sa public service. Blame Cory Aquino for it. May kakilala kami sa Tate na kamag-anak noong kapatid niya sa ama na galit na galit diyan dahil demonyo daw talaga. Then I had a friend who was undersec in some department there. Nagpalipat ng assignment kahit mademote kasi talaga daw na nakakasuka ang garapalan. Iyong mga tinatapalan ng 500K daw ay ubod ng yayabang. Katulad din daw nilang mag-asawa na mga walanghiya at ganid. A lot many at taga-Ateneo daw, and are tied more to the Fatso.

    Kaya kung hindi talaga paghuhusayan nina Cayetano Madrigal and Lacson ang investigation na ito sa racket na ito, lalong mawiwili ang mga walanghiya. Dapat ipinakikita sa mga pilipino iyong mga pelikula on Hitler, et al na mga demonyo. Makikita ng mga pilipino ang parallel. Baka matauhan sila.

    Hopefully, before the next scheduled SONA wala na iyan. Gotta fast for it.

  41. BOB - February 20, 2008 2:08 am

    MAGKANO NA NAMAN KAYA ANG KINITA NANG MGA CABINET MEMBER NA YAN SA SOLIDARITY WALK NA GINAWA NILA !

  42. balweg - February 20, 2008 2:10 am

    Kgg. Chi,

    Tuloy ang senate hearing sa Thursday, Feb. 21, 2008 try your best na mapanood ito at panonoorin ko ito.

    She is evil? Aba eh pasensiya ka GMA sapagka’t maypruweba itong si Mr. Neri dahil parte siya ng inyong Pidalismo regime at ofcourse marami yang alam sa inyong kabulastugan.

    Para malinis ang iyong pangalan dapat ipakulong mo muna sina Jose Pidal, Joc-Joc Bolante, 2Million Dollarman, Garci, Abalos, Tabako et. al., sure na magiging angel ka na.

    Gusto mo pang makipagdigma sa Masang Pilipino eh sino ba ang nagluklok sa iyo sa Malacanang di ba yong mga nagwithdraw ng support sa iyo ngayon plus yong mga inapakan mo noong 2001 & 2004.

    Ang bilis mo namang makalimot?

  43. balweg - February 20, 2008 2:14 am

    Payat kgg. Bob ang milyones kaya kapit-tuko ang mga iyan, tingnan natin ang loyalty ng mga iyan pag ang kanilang bangka eh malapit nang lumubog.

    Magkakanya-kanya yan ng talon at lipat ng bakod. Yang ang masamang ugali na natutuhan ng ating mga leaders at politicians walang honor sa sarili kapal-muks!

  44. grizzy - February 20, 2008 2:29 am

    Balita namin gigibain na iyong Ambassador’s residence sa Tokyo. Talagang mga hayup. Kaya may perang pangkurakot si Talandi. Patitignan namin sa abogado namin ngayon kung may hitch against the law na ginawa and then have the Filipinos here file a litigation against Gloria Dorovobitch, et al.

  45. Isagani - February 20, 2008 2:54 am

    This Neri is like a dog with its tail between its legs, running scared. His fear has turned him so completely. Now it’s self denial and pretty soon it would be he whose greed would need moderation. He has two years to make good, to make his back stabbing pay!

  46. vonjovi2 - February 20, 2008 3:12 am

    Nag pakuha ang mga MAGNANAKAW. Dito mo lang makikita ang mga kawatan na sama sama. OO nga naman Solidarity Walk ng mga Thiefs…Ang sarap hagisan ng Atis. Tapos na ang pag hihirap ng bansa natin. Ang kakapal ng mukha at ngising aso talaga. Lalo na ang Reyna

  47. chi - February 20, 2008 3:16 am

    Napakaliit na babae nitong si Gloria Dorovobitch pero nag-uunahan sa mga palad niya ang 21×2 yagbols! Political prostitute talaga!

  48. joeltan65 - February 20, 2008 3:59 am

    Bakit kasama sina Gen Esperon at Gen Razon? Hindi naman sila cabinet members. They are just mere bureau chiefs! Napaka bad taste. Baka feeling nila cabinet-level ang posts nila, kaya kung magsalita sila akala nila panig ang sundalo at pilis sa pamumulitika nila. Mag-retire na lang kayo, mas maraming matitinong kayang pumalit sa pwesto niyo.

  49. TurningPoint - February 20, 2008 4:35 am

    Para sa akin, itong solidary walk is an ego trip by Gloria Arroyo.

    Pagmasdan ninyo, how proud she was with all her kowtowing men and two women in her 4’10″ frame. Para niyang ipinapakita na: Ito ang mga taong hawak ko sa leeg, mga lalaking wala namang bayag at sunud-sunurin sa lahat kung gustong mangyari. Sa mga nagtatanong kung bakit? Sapagkat hindi sila makakapalag sa dahilang may hawak din akong mga dokumentong laban sa kanila. Hindi ako bano, alam kong isang araw may isang magtataksil sa kanila. May pangontra na dyan.

  50. rose - February 20, 2008 4:55 am

    hindi kaya yong bahay ni Noli ay one of the perks given to him as Housing Secretary? Siempre ang pinaka mahal ang kanya..rags to riches it seems..

  51. chi - February 20, 2008 4:56 am

    Bukas-makalawa, solitary walk na ‘yan.

  52. meksens - February 20, 2008 5:02 am

    Mike Pidal Jr, straight from some office work and earning a miserly few thousand dollars, how could you declare multi-million dollar assets after a couple of years with an equally miserable official pay?
    ******
    Very good point! Anna. Well taken.

    Sa isang Filipino, pangalawa sa Diyos ay ang pamilya. Sa isang pamilya, itinatago ng mga magulang ang mga ginagawa nilang lisya sa mata ng mga anak. Iniiwan nila sa labas ng bahay ang mga kabulastugan nila para igalang sila at ipagmalaki ng kanilang mga anak.

    Kung ang mga anak ang may sariling sipa dahil sa kapangyarihan ng magulang, masasabi nating ito’y masama at hindi tama. Pero, kung ang yaman ng mga anak ay galing sa balato ng mga magulang, nakakahiya pong tawaging Filipino sila. Lalo na po at ang Pinagpipitaganang nilang Ina ay siya ring Ina ng Bayang Pilipinas!

  53. luzviminda - February 20, 2008 5:20 am

    Sa tingin ko eh mukhang UNITY WALK-OUT Of Malacañang na sila. Parang Omen baga na palalayasin na silang lahat sa Malakanyang! Yehey, paalis na sila!

  54. hKofw - February 20, 2008 5:23 am

    vonjovi2 Says:”Dito mo lang makikita ang mga kawatan na sama sama.”…
    Huwag na kayong magtaka sa picture ng mga taga EK (Evil Kingdom) na sabay-sabay na naglalakad. Saba nga “Birds of the same feathers, flocks together”.

    Ang kakapal ng mga mukha nila. Hindi na sila nahihiya sa sa sambayanang Pilipino na kanilang ginagatasan at ninanakawan. Ang nakapagtataka, imagine naglalakad ang Queen of Thiefs kasama ang mga kasabwat na naglalakad at nagpapalitrato kasama pati ang Police Chief, AFP Chief,Justice Chief, at Chifi-fay. Only in the Philippines.

  55. luzviminda - February 20, 2008 5:27 am

    Chi, Anna,

    Dapat nga na ma-lifestyle check yang si Noli Kabayad. Di ba nga at noon pang unang eleksyon na dapat ay presidente ang tatakbuhan niyang posisyon, pero bigla siyang tumakbo bilang Vice President dahil usap-usapan noon na pinagpalit niya ang pagtakbo ng presidente kapalit ng 700 Million Pesos!!! Kaya ayun tumakbo as VP ni Gloria. At mayroon pang latest… Usap-usapan na dapat daw ay Hyatt 11 pero umurong yang si Kabayad kapalit ng dyaraaan…500 Million Pesos!!! Kaya naging Hyatt 10 lang. Ang kaso ang dineclare yata sa misis ay 300M lang. Kinupitan pa yung pinaalam sa misis. Heheheh!

  56. luzviminda - February 20, 2008 5:31 am

    Eh ngayon, nagsasalita na naman si Kabayad na tipong umaalma sa katiwalian. Baka nga naman alukin ulit siya. Pero this time pinag-iisipan niya dahil kung mapatalsik si Gloria eh next in line siya. Imagine siya naman ang nasa renda. Kaya dapat kung patatalsikin si Gloria eh kasama si Noli. Ngayon pa lang ay dapat halukayin na yung mga anomalyang kasangkot si Kabayad na blackmailer!

  57. chi - February 20, 2008 5:38 am

    Luz,

    Baka binigay dun sa isang misis o baka meron tinatago.

    Noli Kabayad is FOR SALE, indeed!

  58. luzviminda - February 20, 2008 5:46 am

    Tama ka Chi,

    Kabayad is FOR SALE! Ang CHEAP ano?!

  59. jay cynikho - February 20, 2008 5:47 am

    Some Ellenville citizens might be asking who are those in the SOLIDARITY WALK to be lined up with the first family when they are hanged or shot in Plaza Miranda. Here’s what was posted in Malacanang website:

    “All the Cabinet members were present during the “solidarity walk” except those who are out of the country.

    1. Vice President Noli de Castro,

    2.Commission on Higher Education Chair Romulo Neri,

    3.Social Welfare and Development Secretary Esperanza Cabral,

    4.Science and Technology Secretary Estrella Alabastro,

    5.Public Works and Highways Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane,

    6.Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Lito Atienza,

    7.Budget Secretary Rolando Andaya Jr.,

    8.Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesperson Ignacio R.
    Bunye,

    9. Presidential Management Staff Director-General
    Cerge Remonde,

    10. Cabinet Secretary Ricardo Saludo and

    11. Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chair Bayani Fernando were among those who took the “solidarity walk.”

    Also present were Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen. Hermogenes Esperon Jr. and Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Avelino Razon.

    The Cabinet men stressed that they would not be swayed by political noise and that they are proud to be working with the President in improving the lives of the people.”

    My question is: WHERE are the Secretaries of

    Education

    May kasong kinakaharap ngayon yang si Noli Kabayad at misis niya, BIGAMY! Kaya di dapat siya umupong presidente dahil MORAL Recovery nga ang hinahanap natin di ba? At I-Lifestyle Check na dapat ngayon pa lang.

  61. jePRoCKs - February 20, 2008 5:59 am

    I have a feeling that this “solidarity walk” picture is similar to the “Last supper”. (The last time all participants were together for the last time.) I hope this is prophetic. Time for you to GO guys…keep on walking and don’t let the door hit you from behind.

    matutuwa ako kung sa sunod nilang gimmick na solidarity walk, hanggang sa labas ng gate ng malacanang, sa mga naghihintay na protesters, para tirisin na lang si gloria. wala nang tanong-tanong!

    si neri, siguro panay ang kimbot nung lumalakad noh! hay naku si neri, mas tumatagal, lalong bumababa ang tingin sa kanya ng tao. yan yata ang gusto niyang legacy.

  64. parasabayan - February 20, 2008 6:52 am

    To think that Neri even heads Education. I do not know what kind of a role model he can be to kids. HE IS A VERY BAD EXAMPLE!

    Solid talaga sila—sa mga pagnanakaw at paggawa ng krimen sa bayan.. e ano ngayon? Solid din kaming mga mamamayan para patalsikin silang mga kriminal sa malacanang!!! TAMA NA! TALAMAK NA! BILIS! GLORIA! TAKBO!! to avoid bloody confrontation…………..

    Sabi niya noong nakuhanan ng litrato ang panty niya, kung ano daw ang suot niyang damit, iyon ang kulay ng underwear niya. Mamahalin na ang mga suot ng ungas pero mukhang basahan pa rin!

If ever, those were our shining moments, an expression of our aspirations as a people, acts of passion to finally show to one and all that the Filipinos arae not quadriplegic, that we are capable of action not just words – for however fiery and articulate, without action, our words are cheapened. If there’s another need for another EDSA, lets go! (with or without the CBCP)

  79. parasabayan - February 20, 2008 9:48 am

    Skip, no matter how high ended ang designer clothes ni DOROBO, mukhang TRAPO pa rin siya. The more it outrages us because sa isang Prada na suot niya ang katumbas ay pagkain na ng isang dosenang pamilya ng isang buwan. Mabuti kung nagsuot na lang siya ng decent looking dress na binili locally. Kahit naman anong isuot mo sa isang “evil” na tao, mukhang demonyo pa rin ang dating!

Nagpaiwan ba sila sa loob ng palasyo at hindi na sumama sa solidarity walk na to, dahil hiyang-hiya na sila sa taong-bayan? ganun ba yun, mga kapatid?

    New mystery witness has more ‘damning’ testimony…

    “Once he has completed arrangements for the “security” of his family, the witness will divulge all he knows about the deal in a press conference sometime this week, the lawyer said.
    But the lawyer said the witness he was referring to was different from the one earlier described by the chair of the Senate blue ribbon committee, Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano.”

    I can’t blame the other witness. Bakit ka nga magwi-witness na wala na ngang bayad, delikado pa ang buhay mo at pamilya gaya ng nangyayari kay Lozada. No wonder the probinsyanong intsik natakot noong una. Napilitan na nga lang harapin ang takot niya dahil na rin sa mga kapatid niya. Mabuhay sila for giving their brother the courage to be the accidental hero that he has become. Tignan monga iyong mga ingratong mga pilipino. Mukhang gusto ding malagyan ni Gloria Dorobo!

    Sa amin, when you stand witness, kahit voluntary, may standard and customary per diem at saka transportation fee wala pang nananakot sa iyo. Golly, ang pagka-primitive (bulok) na sistema sa Pilipinas. Wala nang bayad tinatakot pa. May magbabayad nga pero para iligtas ang mga walanghiya at makapal ang mga mukhang mandarambong! Gee, wala na ba talagang pag-asa?

    Anyway, para sa akin bayani si Lozada pati na asawa niya, ate niya, kuya niya, et al. Mabuhay ka Jun! Hindi ka nag-iisa! Glad to hear that a lot many bigating lawyers have volunteered to defend him. God bless you guys! I won’t mention their names kasi baka ipadukot din sila!!!

  102. grizzy - February 20, 2008 11:04 am

    Kinilabutan ako doon sa sinabi ni Lozada regarding why he wanted to be in public service. Ngayon ko lang napanood ang Harapan interview niya, but you will note that I actually mentioned in another loop one of his probable reasons for trying to be with the biggies in the government—para sa kapatid niyang namatay.

    Sa totoo lang, I find him very credible even when the crooks try hard to destroy his credibility, because I can relate to him. Mabait ang mamang ito, and most of all—very PATRIOTIC!

    Sana gayahin siya ng iba pang pilipino who are put in the same situation. Please isipin naman nila ang bansa nila. OK back to the youtube.

    i am watching it now, at doon pa lang sa date ng dec 2 2006 na weekend na sinabi ni mr. lozada, eh totoo ngang weekend.

    halata naman talaga na mr lozada is on the side of the truth. si abalos, hay naku, may credibility pa bang natitira??? sus naman patawarin, bitayin na yang $%%#@ taong yan.

  108. parasabayan - February 20, 2008 11:44 am

    Anna, we were on the same wavelength on Alan Cayetano’s handling of the new witness. By processs of elimination, the DOROBO would have guessed that new “witness” in a second. Magaling ang radar niya, mafia style nga eh! Alan should have just kept his mouth shut even for a moment! He flaunts his cards all the time so yan nabibisto tuloy ng kalaban ang discarte!

  109. myrna - February 20, 2008 11:44 am

    diego, kahit ganun ang nangyari sa harapan, na parang set-up kay lozada, i still believe, as majority of pinoys do, that he is the one telling the truth.

    sa body language na lang at facial expressios ni abalos, at puros display nung mga papeles, diversionary tactics niya.

    i was amused when it was shown jun lozada giggling and smiling all the time that abalos was presenting those bloody documents. hahahha. si abalos, pati si panelo, nakmukhang tungaw!!!

    mukhang hindi marunong mag facilitate ng debate/harapan si korina. may pinapanigan ba siya? bakit mas maraming oras ang pagsasalita ni abalos?

  110. Diego K. Guerrero - February 20, 2008 11:52 am

    Baka may bayad ang airtime ni Abalos, eh gratis si Lozada. About 90% Haparan viewers believe Lozada is telling the truth. Puro kasungalingan sa panig ng Malacanang mob.

    Kgg.

Lozada? Ang dami nila, ofcourse kailangan ni Hon. Lozada na sagutin lahat ang mga corrupt na iyon, salamat na lamang at pawang katotohanan ang tanging isinagot ng pobre.

    Kita mo alaskador ang mga corrupt lalo na yang si Asec Formoso ba iyon, di raw siya marunong mag-Tagalog kaya english ng english hayon binanatan ni Hon. Lozada ng english eh di nag-Tagalog din si yabang.

    Ang katotohanan kasi eh mahirap yang pasinungalingan at isa pa ang kalaban mo eh yong sariling budhi o kalooban, ito ang wala sa mga corrupt nating opisyales ang magkaroong ng wagas o malinis na budhi.

    Ang liars eh tingnan mo ng diretso sa kanilang mga mata, sure 100% di makakatingin yan ng diretso at makikita mo na pailalim kung makatingin at malikot ang mata.

    And they’re not even friends (according to Cayetano himself.)

  113. balweg - February 20, 2008 12:16 pm

    Kgg. DKG,

    Ang ABS-CBN eh di na natuto yan, bakit ka mo uli kasi nga noong 2001 Malacanang siege eh inupakan ng Masang Pilipino ang mga mamamahayag nila at sinunog pa yong gamit nilang vehicle.

    Now, itong si Corina at Ricky eh di na natuto at bakit pinayagang isa laban sa tropang corrupt, ang dapat eh si Abalos lang ang nandoon para one on one at nang magkaalaman.

    Pero na setup nila si Hon. Lozada, well nangyari na ito at successful namang naipagtanggol ng pobre ang kanyang sarili.

    Next time Ms. Corina and Mr. Ricky, kung gusto nýo na malaman ng taong-Bayan ang katotohanan eh ayusin nýo pls ang pagorganiza ng isang talakayan if one in one ito or by group ok!

    Habang nagpaparada ang mga kurap ay may pinag-uusapan sila.
    Neri–Madam demonyita papano kung aagawin nila ako dito at dadalhin sa senado?
    Gloria-Umayos ka nga ng lakad at ako ang bahala sa iyo.
    Neri–Pero Mam ganyan na talaga ang lakad ko.
    Gloria-Puwes magpakababae ka na at marami akong high heels sa cabinet at ibibigay ko sa iyo.
    Neri–Natatakot talaga akong magpunta sa senado dahil alam na ni Madrigal
    Gloria-Ang alin? Iyong ZTE deal?
    Neri—Hindi iyun ang inaalala ko,ang Tom at Romy ko.
    Gloria-Di sabihin mo ang totoo,magsinunglaing ka sa ZTE
    Neri–Hindi ko yata kayang magsinungaling.
    Gloria–Kung si Razon ay nagsinungaling, kaya mo iyan.
    Neri–Pero Madam,bagong gupit si Bianzon at si Mirriam,nasingkol ang utak,si Gordon naman ay galit na sa atin dahil pinasok na natin ang teritoryo niya sa SBMA
    Gloria–Nadoon naman si Bong at si Lito,sila ang magtatangol sa iyo kapag suntukin ka ni Lacson tatakbo ka sa likod ni dayana at sasabunutan niya si Lacson.
    Neri–Duda ako kay Bong, si Lito naman ay laging absent at panay ang paninigarilyo sa hallway si Dayana naman ay ayaw masira ang manicure.
    Gloria–Hayaan mo kung ayaw mong pumunta,hindi ka nila maagaw sa akin,nandyan sa likod mo si Esperon.
    Neri–Sige,sinabi mo iyan,ha!, kaya lang akin na lang iyang damit mo para may pampasikat ako kay Boy Abunda.
    Gloria–Kung gusto mo di hubarin ko na.
    Teves–Madam huwag kang magbomba dito sa kalsada.
    Razon–Hehehe! Hubarin mo na!
    Noli–Teka tatawag muna ako at magdala sila ng tuwalya.

  118. ace - February 20, 2008 12:59 pm

    Ellen,
    Thanks for the link, I hope this witness will not change his mind ,credible and decide to take the route of Lozada, press conference right away for his protection then go to the senate to testify. He cannot afford to be double-minded and to dillydally or else he’ll be a dead meat.

  119. TurningPoint - February 20, 2008 1:01 pm

    Going to this Solidarity Walk, I’m just wondering now why Neri is in front and walking beside Gloria Arroyo. Being Acting Chairman of CHED(he can’t be full time because he’s not qualified), protocol wise, he should be at the back. Senior cabinet members should be in front like Bunye, etc but not Neri who’s only a commissioner which makes him actually not a cabinet secretary. Maliwanag yan. My take is:

    1. Gloria Arroyo called for Neri to be at her side to show all is well between them and Neri is not the person being speculated as another Senate witness on zte-nbn higher than Lozada.

    2. Gloria Arroyo would like to have Neri to be at her side because if Neri is not within her sight, might whisper to other cabinet members that he really said Gloria Arroyo is evil.

    Ano pa?

  120. grizzy - February 20, 2008 1:05 pm

    TP:

    You said it. Naniniguro si punggok that Neri can’t influence the others to say the same things he and the others observe, di lang makahirit! Sayang kasi iyong 500K!

  121. grizzy - February 20, 2008 1:07 pm

  123. parasabayan - February 20, 2008 1:44 pm

    Ace, if it is Mendoza I do not think he will sing. This guy is in the league of asspweron, ebdane, reyes and other corrupted generals. The corruption is so deep. Those who are benefitted now can’t seem to get enough of the “good thing”. They are enjoying all the loot that are given them by the DOROBOS. I would say, if Mendoza changes his heart then he will truly be a convert. If that is the case, maybe may pagasa pa tayong magbago as a nation. Of course after the DOROBO is booted out!

  129. ace - February 20, 2008 2:20 pm

    PSB,
    Cayetano is not sure if this witness is serious,bluffing and taking the Senate for a ride. So the logical thing to do is to up the ante by giving some hints as to the identity of this witness to find out if this witness is for real. I do not know of anyone in the administration as described by Cayetano that “knows something about the project” and “does not have a problem with his own security”(police/military man)except Mendoza.

    Frankly, it is all publicity. The more Filipinos lap up the publicity stunts of the idiot, the more they get the chance to dip their hands in the coffers. Tindiiiiiiii! It should definitely be stopped by all means.

    Filipinos should be more vocal in the expressions of their anger and it does not mattter if every body goes with them or not. It can still have the same effect.

    Take the protests and rallies now ongoing in Okinawa for instance. The US ambassador was even prompted to go and visit the bases there. He was met by a protest. Now through his recommendation, the US government has restricted the US troops there to the satisfaction of the Japaneese government, (edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/asiapcf/02/19/japan.military.ap/index.html) and there has been no attempt by the US embassy in Japan to meddle in the investigation of the police. Within a week or two the horny US soldier will be indicted and his trial will begin no later than April. Bakit hindi iyan magawa sa Pilipinas? Kasi walang nakakaalam na meron silang karapatan, more than what these crooks have concealed from them to enjoy!!!

    Ang dami kasing mga Abu Gagu who acts as if they are infallible, high and mighty. Tignan mo na lang iyong mga sumusurot-surot kay Lozada sa mga interviews sa TV. Truth is one does not even have to be a lawyer to know what is prescribed in the laws of the land. Common sense lang naman.

    Subject: Photos/Text: Environmental advocates want DENR cleaned of dirty governance

    Clean governance should start right in the government’s very own Environment office, literally and figuratively.

    In light of the NBN ZTE scandal and countless other dirty deeds of the Arroyo administration, members of Environmental and Natural Resource Advocates for GMA’s Expulsion (ENRAGED!) reconvened and launched a clean-up protest in front of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) office, where Arroyo’s top honcho Secretary Lito Atienza holds court.

    Atienza, Patalsikin Din! Lahat ng mga kurakot at konsintidor, SIPAIN NA, NOW NA!

  134. broadbandido - February 20, 2008 3:54 pm

    Imbestigahan din dapat si ‘Tol(pu ang nguso) Defensor at Angelo Reyes na humawak ng DENR bago si Atienza.

    Si Reyes ang head ng mabigyan ng license to put up a spa sa Taal Volvano yung mga Korean investors. Malaki rin ang lagayan sa DENR because you cannot put up any major business kung walang environmental clearance.

    Taragis, ilan na ang nagsasabit ng pangalan noong Tabatsoy na siyang lumalabas na mastermind ng ilan nang racket pati na ang pandaraya sa eleksyon, may gana pa ang ungas na lumabas na parang nakakaloko, at iyong anak na babae, ang tapang ng apog na magpa-TV pa. Kapaaaaaal!

A frog the size of a bowling ball, with heavy armor and teeth, lived among dinosaurs millions of years ago — intimidating enough that scientists who unearthed its fossils dubbed the beast Beelzebufo, or Devil Toad.

    Hi grizzy,

    Dapat rin nating bantayan ang mga kasama sa “Solidarity Walk” at ilan diyan ang unang iiwan ang amo nila at sisipsip kung nakita nilang nalalagas na sila. Kailangan rin nating bantayan ang ating mga lider at baka ilan sa kanila mag ala-Gloria. Kailangan din ng magadang “check and balance” galing Civil Society.

    Nanghihinayang talaga ako sa ibang tao na dati matino naman pero nabilog ang ulo ng administrasyon ni Gloria – tulad ni Joker Arroyo. Sayang talaga siya, ang galing niya ng panahon ni Marcos at panahon ni Cory pero biglang nagbago ngayong panahon.

    Baka pala interesado ka sa bagong article ko sa

    Bale, kung sino man ang interesado, ilagay niyo sa inyong Blogsite, Forumsite o Website ang pinakaasiwang litrato ni Gloria; tapos lagyan niyo ng Gloria Resign o hawig na titulo; at gawa kayo ng komentaryo tungkol sa gubyernong ito at ang mga alipores na nakakalat dito. Puputaktihin natin sila sa Blogswarm.

    Paki-post rin dito sa blog ni Ellen kung nakasali kayo sa Blogswarm para naman namin makita ang gawa ninyo. :)

    Sabi ko nga, kung matino ka, hindi ka madedenggoy ni Gloria. Isang kilatis ko sa ungas kita ko nang demonya e. Mahilig pa iyan sa intriga sa totoo lang. Tsismosa more like. Kaya by her standard, she judges others. Iyon in fact ang prinsipyo noong teaching ni Jesus Christ na bago tumingin ng muta ng iba, tignan muna ang sariling muta. Ganyan si Gloria, si Evil!

    Sa dalawang larawan ng Solidarity Walk, pagmasdan ninyo si Noli de Castro. Noong una, nakatungo. Ikalawa, medyo natingin sa kanan. Ang ipinakikita niya, parang ayaw na niyang makisama sa paglakad. Parang ayaw niyang makitang kabarkada pa siya ng tropa ni Gloria. Animo’y nagbabadya na hindi siya ka-rancho nitong mga manggagantso. Gusto na niyang umiskierda. Aabangan natin yan dahil minsan sinabi na niya, nobody is above the law. Not even Mrs. Arroyo.

  158. ask12b1 - February 21, 2008 2:01 am

    That’s very funny. Here’s Neri who called Gloria Arroyo as evil and then walked with her. He was walking with the evil.
    That was not a solidarity of walk. That was a walk of death.

    Ganito ang pag-uusap nina Neri at PGMA…PGMA: Tutoo bang tinawag mo akong evil? Neri: Hindi ko na matandaan mam’. PGMA: Tandaan mo…iyong 200M noon gagawin kong 400M, okay na ba sa iyo? Basta sabihin mo na lang sa media na natatandaan mo na…na hindi mo kailan binanggit iyong evil. Neri: Kung tanungin po sa akin iyong 200M, sasabihin ko din ba na hindi ko na natatandaan? PGMA: Tanga ka ba? Inamin mo na iyan noon sa hearing under oath pa!

    Senator Alan Cayetano indirectly mentioned Sec. Teves as the new witness. If it’s true, we don’t understand why Alan Cayetano is saying it.

  159. TurningPoint - February 21, 2008 2:36 am

    Regardng Sec. Teves, here’s an interesting portion in the column of Ernie Maceda @Daily Tribune:

    Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos Recto admitted that former Sen. Ralph Recto has been offered the post of secretary of Finance. She even said finance is “Ralph’s expertise.” But of course, Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita denied it because it may just make Secretary Gary Teves resign at this critical period. Now Sen. Ralph Recto also denies he has been offered the job. Is he saying his wife is lying?

    Poor Gary Teves. He doesn’t know what to do.

  160. ask12b1 - February 21, 2008 3:00 am

    Ermita said…”the elements of a successful People Power are just not there.” Ano ang elements na iyan na sinasabi ni Ermita?

    DKG:

    Siguro sinadya ng ABS-CBN na mag-isa si Lozada to gain more sympathy taking into consideration Filipinos’ fondness for the underdog maliban na lamang kung sila mismo iyong nang-aapi. Part of the drama, ‘ika nga. If I am wrong about the ABS-CBN intention in favor of the criminal at the palace by the murky river, OK pa rin. Ironically, mas lalong naawa ang mga tao kay Lozada, buking ang ABS-CBN, and that is good!

    Apparently, another proof that God works in a mysterious way. His ways are not the same as our ways. Kaya alam natin na nanloloko iyon mamang cultist. :-P

  164. ask12b1 - February 21, 2008 6:06 am

    Mr. Guerrero, the other 10% who do not believe are members of the Arroyo family.

    This solidarity walk is obviously just a propaganda. I remember Dinky Soliman and the other ladies in Malacanang even sang for PGMA to show their support. Not long after, Dinky was among the Hyatt 10 who resigned and asked for Arroyo’s resignation.

  165. TurningPoint - February 21, 2008 6:48 am

    One angry OFW wrote in a blog:

    All the people with PGMA in their Solidarity walk are walking in UNITY towards more greed and corruption. The entire team including VP Noli are all corrupt and only thriving on the OFWs remittances to keep the economy afloat but not because they are economic wizards. It’s now time for the OFWs to have their own solidarity. If we cannot withhold our remittances because it means our family will go hungry, let’s join the mass protest against this (p)resident evil who is bitching around for so long.

    Si Gary Teves, pwedeng bumigay talaga iyan. Masamang-masama ang loob nung ma-”collateral damage” sa Batasan blast yung pamangkin niya. Mabuti’t nabuhay pa si Henry. Ang hinanakit nung mama e bakit hindi na lang ini-sniper si Akbar, kailangan pang magpasabog para may maiwang ebidensiya na maglilinis sa gobyerno, obvious namang sila ang tumira.

  168. ask12b1 - February 21, 2008 11:23 am

    If this Sec. Teves is fired, the one who would be very upset is his dad. Ang matandang Teves ang papalag…sunod-sunod lang kasi sa tatay iyang si Sec. Sa katunayan, nalagay siya diyan dahil sa tatay.

  169. Gabriela - February 21, 2008 9:03 pm

    From Ulysses Loresto:

    This unity walk drama by the GMA administration is another proof of the state of panic that Malacanang is now in. A day after after that scripted unity walk, Raul Gonzales is shown on TV expressing his disgust at Neri’s answer regarding the “evil” issue.

    I thought the cabinet is united, why the bickering?! Curiously, during the walk, Neri & Gary Teves were placed right beside GMA. By the way, why is Neri even included in the unity walk? He is the CHED Chairman and not a cabinet secretary. Just curious.

  170. Mrivera - February 21, 2008 9:24 pm

    gabriela,

    paanong hindi isasama si neri sa unity walk ng mga itik, eh di nagkaroon ng matibay na hinala ang sambayanan na tunay ngang sinabi ng baklang ‘yan na evil si gloria, kahit totoo at merong nagpapatunay?

    ang bakla ay talagang ganyan, mas masahol pa sa babae kapag nagipit ay kinakain ang sariling salita. ‘yan ang dalahirang buking!
