Trillanes:incarcerated but productive

When the third session of the 14th Congress opens on July 27, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV may be able to be part of it from his detention cell in Camp Crame via the modern technology of teleconferencing.

This could be the start of the realization of the mandate that the Filipino people bestowed on him when they voted for him senator despite the fact that he was in detention and a thorn in Gloria Arroyo’s neck.

But despite his incarceration, or some say because of it, he has come out to be one of the most prolific members of the Senate having authored and co-authored a total of 285 bills and 21 resolutions in the first two years of his six-year term, mostly in line with his advocacies as poverty alleviation, national defense and security, affordable and accessible health care and education, and environmental protection.

The quality of Trillanes’ bills reflects his vibrancy of his political mind. He was the principal author of the Archipelagic Baseline Law. Through the shepherding of Sen. Miriam Santiago, the final form excluded the Scarborough shoal from the main Philippine territory. The shoal, which is some 124 nautical miles from Zambalez was still part of Philippine territory but as regime of island.

That folly of not including Scarborough shoal as part of the country’s main territory, because we were afraid of China, was brought to fore last month when a Chinese submarine collided with an underwater sonar array towed by a U.S destroyer USS near the area. It’s a brazen intrusion into Philippine territory and all that the authorities could say is, it’s outside Philippine territorial waters.

His crusade for good governance has put him and his fellow Magdalo officers in jail but this has all the more strengthened his resolve for the crusade knowing that corruption in the government is directly linked to the grinding poverty in the country. He has authored “An act consolidating the laws granting rewards to informers of violations of internal revenue and customs laws” and “An Act providing for a grant of reward to informers of violations of RA 7080 (Plunder Law) and RA 1379 (Properties confiscated under the anti-graft and corrupt practices law)

He also authored “An Act increasing the penalties imposed against contractors and subcontractors who violate any material provision of contracts involving public works projects of the government, and public officials who allow such violations, amending for this purpose Presidential Decree No. 1759.”

“We should fight against the alarming propensity of this administration to punish whistleblowers of anomalous transactions instead of the perpetrators, most of whom are part of government themselves,” Trillanes said.

To minimize opportunities for corruption, he introduced the bill mandating the use of transaction windows and the creation of e-services in all government agencies.

Close to his heart, of course, are uniformed personnel who gave him electoral support (he was in the top five precincts surrounding military and police camps). He is giving back that support with bills that
help improve their lot which include increasing the combat pay of AFP officers and personnel and also that of all commissioned and non-commissioned personnel of the Philippine National Police. He has filed bills providing for additional insurance coverage and benefits of all members of the AFP and PNP who are killed, injured, or wounded in the line of duty.

Going back to basics, he filed a resolution increasing the subsistence allowance of all officers and enlisted personnel of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) from P90 to P150 per day.

Aware of the connection between poverty and inaccessibility to education, he filed a bill to subsidize school fees in all public elementary and high schools, and another one strengthening the open learning system of higher education in the Philippines.

This one I especially applaud: An Act requiring Mandatory Computer Education in all public and private high schools.

In our barrio in Guisijan, Laua-an in the province of Antique, young people graduate in high school without having seen and touch a computer. I can just imagine their great disadvantage when they go to college and look for job. Without computer knowledge, they end up domestic helpers and laborers in sweat shops.

Concerned about the effect of brain drain in our health sector, with Filipino doctors becoming nurses in other countries, he filed a bill providing for an increase in the salary of government physicians.

He also filed a bill creating a national cancer center to be known as the Philippine National Cancer Center and another one providing for a National Cervical Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment Fund.

All these efforts to improve the lives of the Filipino can be facilitated if we have a change in leadership And change is only possible with Gloria Arroyo out of Malacañang.“Any illusions of change are simply not possible under the administration of GMA,” Trillanes said.

    Trillanes is very aware of the ‘hardships’ that you and the other cancer survivors/victims went/undergoing through, Ellen. Mahal ka talaga ni Trillanes.

    Mabuhay Sen. Sonny! You have my unequivocal support.

  2. chi - July 8, 2009 12:55 am

    Coherent ang mga bills ni Trillanes, ugnay-ugnay. Brilliant!

  3. vonjovi - July 8, 2009 1:46 am

    Good job Senator Trillanes…

    Ooppss ang iba babalingbing na at pupurihin si Trillanes..

  4. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 2:12 am

    There is no doubt in my mind that Sonny will deliver! He walks the talk. Can we do the same? We are free yet caged. Sonny is caged yet he is productive. What an irony!

    He raised the bar for public service. I hope this awakens the corrupt imbesiles walking around in their barongs looking and feeling like legislators but are simply actors or mouth pieces for the rich and powerful legislating only the bills to benefit those who wish to have more assets and power!

    Sonny, keep it up!

  5. Rose - July 8, 2009 2:19 am

    Kahit nakukulong ay may mga nagawa para sa Oh my gal so very..may nagawa ba? how about Lito Lapid? and Bong Revilla?

  6. chi - July 8, 2009 2:20 am

    We make Sonny Trillanes as the benchmark for public service, majority would fail!

  7. Kimchi - July 8, 2009 3:14 am

    Si Trillanes ay very productive kahit naka-kulong.

    Si gloria naman, hindi naka-kulong pero counter-productive. Ni isa man wala siyang nagawa, PERIOD !!

    Kung sabagay, bakit nga naman siya gagawa pa eh puwede namang nakawin.

  8. patria adorada - July 8, 2009 3:37 am

    basta idol ko siya at ang tanay boys!!!

  9. taga-ilog - July 8, 2009 4:21 am

    Mabuhay ang Tanay Boys! We need more of them in government after the reign of terror of pgma.

  10. Rose - July 8, 2009 4:35 am

    Si Gloria on the other inutil…waay pulos, unproductive, basura!

  11. Dodong - July 8, 2009 7:57 am

    Buti si Trillanes nagtratrabaho kahit nakakulong…eh si Lito Lapid. People should not re-elect this Lapid or whatever position he runs in 2010.

  12. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 8, 2009 8:21 am

    EUREKA! Alam ko na, para maging productive din si Gloria, dapat ikulong siya! Tama! Ayos diba?

  13. taga-ilog - July 8, 2009 8:23 am

    Di mo masisi ang mga bomoto ke Lapid…..Sila ang mga tanga, gago at walang pakialam kung ano ang mangyayari kung mahalal ang ganitong uri ng hayop!
    Ang masama, ito ang grupo ng mamamayan na ating ipinaglalaban at nais tulungan na aayaw namang tulungan ang sarili. Mga taong nakakaawang patayin at nakakahiyang buhayin.

  14. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 8:57 am

    Off topic: Nangongotong na naman ang CBCP kay boobuwit or the other way around, magbibigay na naman ng brown envelopes si boobbuwit sa mga Fadirs! I thought the church should be separate from politics in tha same way that the military should stay away from politics. Grabe talaga!

  15. Rose - July 8, 2009 9:10 am

    ps: Just like PMA class ’78 honorary member din si putot sa CBCP..siya ang financier…Master siya sa corruption, pagnanakaw (total madali naman ang mag kumpisal) pagsisinungaling, bombing at marami pa! she can do anything and everything…

  16. Rose - July 8, 2009 9:34 am

    Tongue: I agree…Ikulong si Gloria and perhaps maging productive siya..and not only that kahit hindi siya productive basta makulong lang siya many of us will be happy.

  17. dandaw - July 8, 2009 9:53 am

    Trillanes is a true Patriot. He sponsored a lot of good bills that is very much needed by the Filipinos. He has all the signs of a good politician and a good candidate to lead our country. Mabuhay ka Senator

    i like! i like!

    i know this is a bigh help sa mga ka-barrio ko. people and politrapos do not realize how difficult it is sa barrio when you go to school, wala na ngang baon, you still have to walkathon sa talahib highways and this certainly will be a big help.

    tita ellen, wag kang magalet. unfair ang entry mo. ba’t walang pic nang idol? hehehe! *hikbi*

  19. reynz - July 8, 2009 10:37 am

    BY THE WAY: I don’t want to sound anti-whatever, pero di ba productive naman si Gloria – eto o:

    Arroyo declared July 27 as “Iglesia ni Cristo Day,” a non-working holiday commemorating the founding anniversary of the sect.

  20. The EQualizer - July 8, 2009 10:42 am

    “To give everybody a brief background of Norberto Gonzales, he is one of the masterminds of the Light-a-Fire Movement in the 70′s, the anti-Marcos group responsible for several bombings in Metro Manila, which resulted in the deaths of dozens of Filipinos. This information is readily available in the Internet and was even documented in the memoirs of Ed Olaguer, one of the leaders of the Light-a-Fire Movement.

    In short, this man is very much capable of wreaking havoc to our society. He is the true terrorist.”Senator Antonio Trillanes

  21. iwatcher2010 - July 8, 2009 10:43 am

    kaibigang rose…may nagawa naman si bong revilla, di ba nga yung kho-halili privelege speech niya at yung laging sabit photo-ops gloria and gang pati foreign travel nahihilig na rin. check ko nga website senate para malaman ko sponsored bills niya of major national impotrtance….

    si lito leon guerrero may nagawa naman di ba sunod-sunuran sa gusto ni gloria…sabi ni gloria “leon, takbo ka mayor makati…ako bahala sayo and tulungan kita maayos mga graft cases mo” sabi ni leon “yes mam, nanginginig pa!”

    at instant businessman na si leon napalago ang mga kabuhayan…salamat sa lahar collection, at pag nagawi ka sa kaniyang mansiyon di pahuhuli ang bahay niya sa mga tru-blooded millionaires and elite…sabi nga may taste si leon guerrero
    check ko din website senate, may nagawa ba siyang legislation? kasi after roll call nawawala na sa senate floor, nagkukulong daw sa kaniyang opis para pag-aralan ang kaniyang mga legislative proposal.

    pag lumusot pa si leon guerrero, si bong revilla mukhang malaki talaga problema ng botanteng pilipino.

    NO TO TRAPOS SA 2010!

    Aware of the connection between poverty and inaccessibility to education, he filed a bill to subsidize school fees in all public elementary and high schools, and another one strengthening the open learning system of higher education in the Philippines.

    For me,this is a good bill if it can be implemented.
    “Brain is the most terrible things to waste”

    Kaya lang hanga ngayon ay lumalala yata ang sistema ng education sa atin.Kulang ang classrooms at mga teachers.
    May napanood akong TV program ni Karen Davila,tinutukan niya ang sistema ng public education sa elementary.Sa isang kuarto mahigit isang daan ang studyante at nagsisiksikan,at ginawa pa yatang dalawang shift,pang-umaga at pang-hapon.Mabuti na lang at walang graveyard shift.Papano sila matuto? Kaya iyung spelling ng PUBLIC ay PUBIC at ang BREAST ay SUSU ang isinusulat nila sa pisara.

    Iba ang education ng public school at private kaya nagkakaroon ng milya-milyang agwat,competition at discrimination.Ang mangyayari nito sa bandang huli at kung makatapos man ang nag-aaral sa public school laging sa likod ang papel nila.Pagdating sa paghahanap ng trabaho,iyung galing sa magagaling na school ang unang tatangapin.Papano na ang mga mahihirap hangang sa himod puwit na lang sila para makapagtrabaho.

    Pagdating naman sa pulitika ay dehado na naman ang mga nagtapos na mahihirap galing sa pipitsuging paaralan.Iyung UP at PUP ay government university pero papano matatangap ang high school graduate na galing sa Barrio High school kung hindi nila maipasa ang entrance exam.Kaya ang nangyayari ay iyung may mga kaya na naman ang natatangap na nagpapa enroll na graduate sa magandang kalidad na high school academy.Kaya ang nangyayari ay OFW na naman ang mga nagtapos na mahihirap.

    Bandang huli mayayaman na naman ang nahahalal na alkalde at konsehal ng bayan.Dating gawi dahil takot silang mawalan ng pera.

  23. iwatcher2010 - July 8, 2009 10:53 am

    kaibigang Equalizer…yun nga ang nakakatakot sa katauhan ni norberto gonzalez,kaya niyang gawin at matagal na niyang plano o kabahagi sa kaniyang mga plano kasi nabulag sa kaniyang paniniwala at nagkamali pa sa pagbibigay ng loyalty kay queen gloria.

    isa pang may kapasidad at magaling magplano sa kalokohan ay si ermita at si ronnie puno, ‘tong tatlo ‘to ang haligi ni queen gloria.

    si ermita kasabwat ng kaniyang mayor pamangkin sa pagtatago kay garci sa balayan,batangas for 3months nung kainitan ng ‘hello garci scandal” at si ronnie puno ang dakilang promotor ng dagdag-bawas at operation fake ERs

    nakakatakot ang mga taong ‘to salbahe talaga!

  24. josé miguel - July 8, 2009 11:00 am

    I seem to be unable to post comment in the magdalo para sa pagbabago website regarding the annual report of Senator Trillanes. So I’ll just post some of those which I can still remember.

    I especially took notice of his bills on Defining the Philippine Baseline and the Subsidy Program for the Young Filipino Farmers.

    These are two bills which affect our very survival as a nation but are being neglected by the GMA implanted government and her corrupted legislators. Intead, they are involved in the handing over of our prime assets to our foreign invaders.

    These are security issues. GMA implanted government has commited acts of treason. What are the soldiers among us doing with this duty to arrest compatriots having committed acts of treason?

  25. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 12:05 pm

    The priority of our country should be EDUCATION in all levels. Wala na tayong magagawa sa mga tumanda na na ayaw magaral. But we can do something for he youth. It is not too late yet. Buwawi naman tayo sa mga anak natin.

    Cocoy, I watched that documentary too. Nakakaiyak talaga. Grade four na eh hindi pa maispelling ang “beautiful”. At yung iba eh ni hindi alam ang math na pang-grade 1! Grabe talaga!

  26. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 12:10 pm

    Sa dami ng kailangan ng ating bansa, kailangan pa natin ng 12 pang Trillianes! Let us work on it!

  27. ricelander - July 8, 2009 12:37 pm

    Somebody please reply to Ramon Tulfo’s tirades against Trillanes.

    Aw, c’mon, boy, why didn’t you look at yourself in the mirror first before pointing an accusing finger at President Gloria?

    Why didn’t you mention the many cars and the house in the exclusive village in Antipolo, Rizal that you owned when you were still in the military?

    How could you afford to buy those cars and expensive house on your salary as a lieutenant in the Navy?

    Why didn’t you mention your tiff with a Dutchman and his Filipino wife who claim you grabbed their house and lot in Quezon City?

    You even sent the Dutchman, Adriaan de Jager, to prison on trumped-up charges.

    The poor guy spent 15 months at the immigration jail in Bicutan.

    You know what you did to the couple Annie and Adriaan?

    Spending for lawyers and other expenses during Adriaan’s incarceration, the De Jagers are now impoverished and dependent on doles from kindhearted people.

    The only crime the De Jagers committed was to stand up to you to protect their property when you grabbed it from them.

    Oh, boy, you really used your power as a military officer when you tangled with the De Jagers, both engineers, who left the Netherlands to settle down here!

    If you were that abusive when you were a mere Navy lieutenant, much more so now that you’re already a senator.

    When you were in jail at the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (Isafp), you were a problem-detainee as you always quarreled with your jailers.

    What’s keeping you from being abusive is your being in jail.

    If only the people who voted for you knew your real character, they would have thought twice before writing your name in their ballots.

  28. siyetehan - July 8, 2009 12:52 pm

    @reyna elena: concerning GMA’s declaration of the INC day on July 27, shouldnt it be fair if she also declare:

    Aglipayan Day
    Seventh day Adventist Day
    Ang Dating Daan Day
    etc. etc.



  29. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 1:04 pm

    Lumang issue na ito ni Tulfo. These were issues even before he was elected as a senator. Maybe Ellen can have the good senator answer these allegations, pagbalik niya galing sa kanyang bakasyon.

  30. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 1:07 pm

    Magkano kaya ang talent fee ni Tulfo to make an article like this?

  31. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 1:24 pm

    Off topic: I just heard that the witnesses at the Tanay Boys’ hearing did not show up again today. Ganito ng ganito ang nangyayari sa hearing. Talagang parang pinapahaba lang nila ang kangaroo court martial na ito. Sige lang. As far as I am concerned, they are safer in their cells than outside where their lives may be in danger. Motorcycle bandits, bombs and all the other killing tactics…to eliminate people who are obstructing their way. Nakakatakot talaga!

  32. Cocoy - July 8, 2009 1:45 pm

    Mas maganda siguro kung may maipasang batas na bawal magkaroon ng anak kung di nila kayang buhayin at pag-paaralin,kaya lang tututulan ng simbahan at mga pulitiko ang batas na ito sa dahilang.Mas maraming illiterate mas madaling magoyo sa milagro at religion kaya advantage ang mga simbahan dito.Pangalawa panlaban ng mga pulitiko ang mga taong ito dahil mamiso at tig-iisang lata lang ng ligo ang kanilang boto.

    Kailangan din ang gabay at suporta ng magulang sa ikabubuti ng kanilang mga anak.Marami ring kasing mga tanga na magulang.Isipin na lang,sarili nila di nila kayang buhayin,bakit magdagdag pa ng lima hangang sampung plato sa hapag kainan,sino ang kawawa? Iyung mga naging anak nila.Walang makain at kadalasan ay kulang na rin sa education.Kapag walang pinag-aralan ang tao,mahihirapan makapagtrabaho kaya kriminal ang kalalabasan para lang mabuhay at nawawalan ng prinsipyo at dignidad.

  33. josé miguel - July 8, 2009 1:48 pm

    Observe the pattern of Tulfo for years. He has been a defender of the Chinese and American invaders of our nation. He is an enemy collaborator. He has therefor been commiting acts of treason like his stage adversary GMA. Instead of being provided marine escorts (which should be investigated by the Senate if true until now), he should be arrested.

    He is nothing of value in our country.

  34. josé miguel - July 8, 2009 1:50 pm

    In fact, he is a liability.

  35. Cocoy - July 8, 2009 1:50 pm

    Mas maraming mahihirap mas malaki ang sales ng Lotto.Mas masaya ang mga jueting lord dahil kahit gising ang mga taong ito ay nananaginip ng numero.

  36. Cocoy - July 8, 2009 2:19 pm

    Sa akin lang, siguro naman ay hindi susulatin ni Tulfo ang ganito kung wala siyang matibay na ebedensya dahil makasuhan siya ng Libel.Ewan ko lang,kaya mas mabuti na iyung malaman nating ang kara at krus sa biente singko sintimos.

    Gusto ko ring malaman kung ano ang response ni Trillanes dito sa article ni Tulfo.

  37. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 2:24 pm

    Hindi ba hindi na criminal offense ang libel? May multa na lang.

    Mabuti nga at ang mga kwentong katulad nito eh nababasa ng mga tao at si Sen Trillianes mismo para malaman natin ang totoo.

  38. Broadbandido - July 8, 2009 2:30 pm

    Agree ako diyan, Cocoy. I have nothing but praises and admiration for Sen. Trillanes, but he should not let this opportunity to lapse without defending his reputation.

    I am sure Mon Tulfo will print his rebuttal if and when he decides to make it.

  39. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 2:31 pm

    Paano namang hindi dadami ang tao ayaw ng simbahan ng birth control. Ang gobierno naman eh walang perang para sa sex education ng mga taong nasa productive ages pa. Kaya tuloy yan-dumami ng husto ang mga tao. Noong 1970s wala pa tayong 30 million. Ngayon, 90 million na! Ang ekonomiya naman natin ay hindi lumalago. Kaya ang labas, mas maraming gutom!

    Yung mga may kaya, ayaw ng maraming anak. Yung mga walang kaya, anak lang ng anak. Diyos na mahabagin!

  40. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 2:34 pm

    Bottomline is, mas mahalaga sa mga nasa pwesto, nasa gobierno man o simbahan ang mga pangsariling kapakanan. Basta may tongpats at brown envelopes, ayos ang buto buto. Kaya yan ang mga mahihirap ay lalong humihirap!

  41. Broadbandido - July 8, 2009 2:40 pm

    Mga inutil talaga ang mga politiko at mga nasa simbahan pagdating sa population control. We’ll never progress if our production is lagging behind our population growth. Despite the fact that millions have left the country, either to migrate or as an OFW, there are still way too many mouths to feed.

    Sa Quezon City nga, on approaching the North EDSA terminal of the MRT, there is a huge piece of land that is populated by a squatter colony. I will not waste my breath using the politically correct term of “informal settlers”. They are squatting on somebody else’s land, breeding like rabbits, and the criminals among them victimizing the law-abiding citizens. What a country!!!

  42. Broadbandido - July 8, 2009 2:44 pm

    I wonder what the evil bitch is discussing with the Bishops before the Bishop’s conference??

    Could it be another round of paper bag distribution to soften the bishop’s stand against Con-Ass?

  43. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 3:03 pm

    Boobuwit will give the CBCP brown bags to soften them into closing their eyes, plugging their ears and biting their tongues. I lost respect for these supposedly holy men. I can only respect a few of them and they are becoming a rare breed nowadays.

  44. parasabayan - July 8, 2009 3:05 pm

    Lulutuin muna ni boobuwit yung pastoral message ng CBCP.

  45. Mumbaki - July 8, 2009 4:57 pm

    We should change our education system,we should make it more functional and practical rather than too theoretic. :)

    I think we don’t need birth control,we need more jobs ang mga muslim including converts na ang dumdami ang population sabi ng friends ko mataas ang birthrate sa ARMM….

  46. mukat - July 8, 2009 7:29 pm

    Wa happen to Sen. Lacson. Mukhang tinalo siya ng mga taga-Palasyo. Biglang tumahimik yata. Ano na ang development sa kaso ni Villar? Ano ba itong dalawa (Lacson at Madrigal) susugod tapos aatras? Tumahimik yata lahat ang mga Presidentiables? Nagpaputok lang si Glorya …. lahat sila takot na. Wala din pala silang bayag …. puro daldal lang.
    Si Glorya naman bugbug na bugbug na pati nga suso at pekpek niya tumagas na dahil sa kabu-bugbug … pero ayan lumalaban pa. Eto namang mga Presidentiables na dapat angat na dahil sa ang kalaban ay bugbug na pero ano ang ginawa kwitis lang ang sumabog puro nagtago na sila lahat.
    Papa-ano tayo makaka-alis sa ganitong sitwasyon kung ang mga ina-asahan ng mga tao ay bayag-less naman pala.

  47. mukat - July 8, 2009 7:31 pm

    Ibang iba talaga si Ninoy Aquino. Lumalaban kahit ibuwis niya ang kanyang buhay. Dapat lang talaga na ituring siyang isang Bayani.

  48. chi - July 8, 2009 7:32 pm

    Dapat ay nagbabasa ng Ellenville itong si Pidalistang Ramon Tulfo. Sa mga antigo dito e history na ang kanyang kritisismo/paninira kay Trillanes. Karamihan dyan ay nasagot na ni Tongue bago pa man manalo si Trillanes. Rerun/reprinted na yan.

    Yung may ‘brain’ na isyu naman….

  49. mukat - July 8, 2009 7:34 pm

    Mukhang etong si Mar Roxas ay uma-asa na lang sa kasikatan ni Korina. Nag-aambag siya sa pambili ni Korina ng maraming tsinelas para ipamudmud sa mahihirap. Ang cheap mo naman Mar!!!!!!! lol

  50. chi - July 8, 2009 7:35 pm

    O, I forgot to mention that Trillanes already addressed those questions before. I’m trying to archive pero matagal ng masyado.

    Para sa mga late tuner, marahil ay pwedeng i-replay ni Trillanes ang sagot.

  51. mukat - July 8, 2009 7:41 pm

    Tungkol naman dito sa sinulat ni Tulfo … dapat tignan din natin. Nagbanggit siya ng pangalan kaya dapat lang na sumagot din si Trillanes dito.

  52. norpil - July 8, 2009 7:46 pm

    sen trillanes is very effective while in jail, so why not put all the others in jail. they can think better and work better and maybe cooperate more. put all politicians in jail, indeed all candidates should be incarcerated so there can be no overspending. this coming election will be very economical.sen trillanes set the example and will continue the good work in jail.

  53. chi - July 8, 2009 7:47 pm

    Dapat ay sagutin rin ni Tulfo ang tanong namin noon, saan siya kumuha ng milliones na pambili ng noon ay pinakamahal na Hummer. He’s just a mere reporter. Hindi niya iyan sinasagot.

  54. chi - July 8, 2009 7:49 pm


    Gumagana ba ngayon ay iyong pornographic, este photographic mind?

  55. chi - July 8, 2009 8:05 pm


    A mere salary of a reporter won’t buy the most expensive Hummer then which ranged from P11M -P16M fully loaded. But Ramon Tulfo was one of the very few to own it in Pinas. Nandyan pa kaya yun, o pinalitan na dahil luma na ngayon.

  56. iwatcher2010 - July 8, 2009 8:06 pm

    nice suggestion kaibigang norpil…

    sana pag nawala sa puwesto si queen gloria at kingpin pidal ay habulin din ng mga kaso ang mga miyembro ng malacanang mafia at arroyo corrupt-poration na daang milyong piso ang kinulimbat sa kaban ng bayan…sinu-sino nga ba sila?
    mightymouse mike,toting bunye, nani perez, burger abalos, ed ermita, ronnie puno, norberto gonzalez, raul gonzalez,jocjoc bolante… dami pa nila sama mo pa yung mga new multi-millionaire ebdane, mendoza, esperon, angie reyes at marami pang iabng ganid at buwitre…

    sana nga lang makulong lahat ng opisyal ng afp at pnp na nakilahok sa malakihan at organisadong dayaan noong 2004 isama mo na ang mga magicians na sina garci, lintang bedol at marami pang iba.

    sana nga lang ma-lifestyle check ang mga damuho kasi daming assets nakapangalan sa mga kamag-anak,dollar account sa abroad,iba’t-ibang companies at ibat-ibang investments….

    sana nga lang makulong din ang mga kurakot na trapos, local politicos, tongressmen at senatongs na nakinabang kay queen gloria.

    at sana rin sa pagtatapos ng kanilang termino ay makulong ang mga miyembro ng malacanang mafia at arroyo corrupt-poration,cabinet sec/usec/department head na sangkot sa mga anomalya…DA, Customs, DepEd, AFP/PNP,DPWH, DOTC at iba pang ahensiya ng gobyerno na ginawang gatasan ng mga nasabing opisyales, mga cronies at ang kagalang-galang, kapita-pitagan (+++++) pamilya ni queen gloria lalo na si kingpin pidal, mega-brothers at mega-uncle…

    sana nga lang may eleksiyon…walang emergency rule…at magkakaisa na ang masang pilipino laban sa mga trapos na nagpapahirap sa bayan.

    sana nga lang magkaroon ng katuparan ang mga pangarap ko, o manatiling pangarap na lamang…

    sana nga…

    NO TO TRAPOS 2010!

    ‘Ramon Tulfo’s tirades against Trillanes’
    Si Ramon Tulfo nabahag na yata ang buntot niya kay Mike Arroyo nang idemmanda siya nito. Bakit niya tinitira si Sen. Trillantes? Ano ang DAHILAN kaya? Si Trillantes ibinoto ng bayan. Marami siyang nagawa. Si Gloria BooBita ay ilegal na Presidente. Maraming ninakaw sa bayan. Ano ngayon ang problema ni Tulfo?

    May mga lumalabas na balita na ang Tulfo Brothers ay sangkot sa blackmailing sa pamamagitan ng paghingi ng pera para hindi nila ibulgar sa madla ang baho ng isang tao o organisasyon.

    TULFO BROTHERS USE their Newspaper Columns and Radio Programs for BLACKMAIL & EXTORTION

    Si Trillantes, meron na siyang paliwanag sa mga paninira sa kanya noon:

    Hilingin na lang natin kay Sen. Trillantes na ipaliwanag muli niya ang kanyang panig ukol sa huling paratang ni Tulfo.

  58. iwatcher2010 - July 8, 2009 8:24 pm

    kaibigang r. tulfo ay malapit kay kingpin pidal(ngayon daw hindi na at bumabanat na daw???) at kung bumanat kay kingpin pidal at queen gloria ay pigil parang si sen. alan cayetano…oposisyon pero may reservation palagi…simpleng salita, pakitang tao at palabas lamang

    may karapatan naman siyang magkaraon ng mala-gintong sasakyan kung second-hand, pero used hummer nga lang mahal na..kung bago, hmmm mukhang may sideline.

    mas matindi ang bintangan at patutsadahan ngayon kasi “election fever” na at maraming brown envelopes ang lulutang papunta sa mesa ng mga mediamen, local politicos, donations sa simbahan at kaparian…at depende yun kung tama ang tirada mo sa admin man oposisyon.

    sana lamang huwag magpadala si sen. trillanes sa lumang politika ng trapos at ipagpatuloy lang niya ang magandang hangarin para sa bayan…hindi masama magpapogi basta totoo at may ebidensiya na nagtratrabaho ka at kung may nakaraang maling kilos at aksiyon, ang kasalukuyang kilos niya bilang lingkod-bayan ang maghuhusga sa kaniyang katauhan.

    at kay mo tulfo, malaki ang bilib ko sa mamang ‘to pero sana mas banatan niya yung miyembro ng malacanang mafia at arroyo corrupt-poration na lantad na lantad ang mga kayamanan, mga bagong milyonaryo di naman tumama sa lotto, mga lingkod-bayan pero negosyante at hilig sa tongpats…siguro mas madadagdagan ang paghanga ko, pag bumira todo-bigay hindi pigil at namimili lang?

    NO TO TRAPOS 2010!

    Banat ng mga Tulfo kay boobsy Gloria and the entire Pidales will never happen (again). Tanda ko e bumanat ng padaplis pero dinala sa korte ni Pidal, ayon bahag ang mga buntot at kissing Pidals’ butts na ule.

    Ayun din pala sa link ni hkofw ang link ng katarantaduhan ng Tulfo bros. Hindi ko binabasa ang column ni Ramon Tulfo, degrading sa sensibility ko, hehehe!

    Pero mabuti na ang sagutin ito muli ni Trillanes dahil public figure na s’ya.

  63. chi - July 8, 2009 8:54 pm

    “..Close to his heart, of course, are uniformed personnel who gave him electoral support (he was in the top five precincts surrounding military and police camps)…”

    This confirmed what we already knew that only the top brass and supot soldiers are in Gloria’s pockets. Nanakot pa si Asspweron nun. This stats, we can use to bring BGen. Danny Lim and Col. Querubin to the Senate.

    Punuin natin ng matitinong opisyal ang Senado at nang may pagbabago!

  64. Ellen - July 8, 2009 9:27 pm

    Tulfo’s tirades are recycled trumped up charges. This came up first after the Oakwood incident. This was revived during the 2007 election campaign. Sen. Trillanes has answered this point by point.

    I know i posted it here.

    Try searching for the name of that dutch guy here.

    I’ll try to find it but internet connection here in our barrio is soooo slow.

  65. chi - July 8, 2009 9:50 pm

    I’m trying….

    Those who want to know Trillanes’ answers sa replay tirades ni Ramon, maghalungkat din kayo at tuloy ay magbalik-aral tayo…..

  66. Vonjovi - July 8, 2009 10:18 pm

    Marami pa rin dito salawahan… tapos na ang isyu ni Tulfo’k at nabili na rin sila ni Baboy. Ngayon ay batuhan at bastusan na ang mga lalabas sa peryodiko dito dahil papalapit na ang election (kung mayroon). Gumana na ang “Save the Queen” or the “August Moon” nila. Bomb me here and there na ang ginagawa nila.
    Bakit sa Mindanao nag uumpisa ang pag bomba. Sa ganang akin ay katulad kong Muslim ay gagawin ko ang pag bo bomba sa Manila at di sa aking mga kapatid doon. Ang mga Muslim ay di basta basta gagawa sa kanilang lugar dahil lalo lang magagalit ang ibang tao sa kanila at di sila tutulungan. Pag kidnap ng mga dayuhan ang kanilang number one priority para sa puhunan nila at di ang pag bomba.

    Gawa gawa lang ito siguro ng mga galamay ni BOOBBUWIT. Ang CLASS 78 na mga hinayupak na bayarang “GERMNERAL”.

  67. Ka Enchong - July 8, 2009 10:29 pm

    Somebody please reply to Ramon Tulfo’s tirades against Trillanes.

    The good senator already answered these allegations point by point on 28 August 2003-

  68. Ka Enchong - July 8, 2009 10:36 pm

    Try searching for the name of that dutch guy here.

    The Dutch guy’s name is Adriaan de Jager, married to one Filipina named Anastacia Santarin.

    Hayyy, salamat Ka Enchong. Nasa 2007 pa mandin ako. O ayan, kayo na ang maghanap kung intresado kayo kay Sonny T.!

  70. chi - July 8, 2009 10:42 pm

    He should look first in the mirror before releasing unfounded charges. Parang mercenary itong Ramon Tulfo. Nasa payroll ng Jose Pidal Mafia. Magsama sila sa impierno ang kanyang amo na may pekeng boobs.

    Kita niyo ngayon lahat ang mga pumipiyok ay puro aso ni Glorya. Plano nila talaga. Kaya mga kababayan ko husgahan na natin ang rehimeng ito at kung patumpik-tumpik lang tayo ….. may tulog tayo. Magwawagi ang mga hayok sa kuwalta!!!!!!!

  74. mukat - July 8, 2009 11:48 pm

    Magkakamot na lang tayo ng bayag at sasabihin nating …. naisahan na naman tayo ni Glorya.

  75. Cocoy - July 9, 2009 12:47 am

    Mababaw na dahilan iyang putukan ng kwitis sa Mindanao para magdeclare ng emergency rule si Susong Dalaga.Hindi nasa panganip ang buong estado ng bansa.Incompetent lang ang kumander ng military sa lugar ng may bombahan na dapat ng mapalitan kung di nila kayang patigilin.

    Noong panahon pa ni Magellan ang kaguluhan diyan.Almusal,tanghalian at hapunan na nila ang putukan diyan.

    Papano na ang LUZON,at VISAYAS at ibang parte ng Mindanao hindi naman apektado sa kaguluhan,kaya mahirap ipatupad ni Susong Dalaga ang kahibangan niya na mag-declare ng Emergency Rule.Kapag ginawa niya iyan ay baka mapipol power na siya.

    Ina-asses na ni Pareng Barak ang situation ng bombahan diyan at hindi siya papayag sa kagustuhan ni Susong Dalaga palagay ko na mag Declare siya ng Martial law.Mas maganda nga kung bombahin na nila ang US Embassy ng makita na nila ang hinahanap nilang kaguluhan.

  76. parasabayan - July 9, 2009 1:03 am

    Thanks hkofw. The link to the letter of Sen Trillianes explaining the “wealth” issue was helpful. Even without reading that explanation, I will believe Sonny 100% over the Pidal and the Tulfos!

  77. parasabayan - July 9, 2009 1:28 am

    Sen Trillianes, a bill that will put away corrupt government officials will be helpful. We have so many laws about corruption but maybe we should tighten the screws on them. The jail time should be loooong. All looted assets should be immediately sequestererd from these villains without so much litigation (as the courts are mostly corrupted too). Corrupt officials should be terminated pronto and will never be given any chance to serve publicly again! There will be no “presidential priviledges” or the like and no HOLY COWS! Senator, if you can craft bills to effect these, I hail you more!

    The jail time for the corrupt should be corresponding to the assets they looted. The more assets they stole, the longer would be the jail time. Now this will deter corruption. In all government offices, there should be planted detectives just for the purpose of spotting the corrupt officers and employees. Paying the hired help will be very cost effective in the long run. In money making departments like banks, BIR, customs, more spies should be hired. These hired detectives should have the 100% protection that they will not be compromised in whatever shape or form.

    Privacy laws of banks should also be revised. Because of these privacy laws, it is tougher to run after the crooks.

    O,yung mga tunay na intresado kay Sonny Trillanes, maghalungkat na kayo sa blog ni Tongue.

  81. Ellen - July 9, 2009 6:47 am

    Here’s the letter Atty. Reynaldo Robles sent to the Inquirer last Monday.

    07 July 2009


    Opinion Editor

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    Chino Roces Avenue corner Yague & Mascardo Sts.

    Makati City

    Dear Mr. Aruta:

    Please allow me to respond point-by-point to the personal attacks of Mr. Ramon Tulfo against Sen. Antonio F. Trillanes IV in his column “On Target” (PDI, July 7, 2009).

    1. Many cars. – Contrary to the claim of Mr. Tulfo, Sen. Trillanes never owned any luxury vehicles when he was in the military. Sen. Trillanes’s only vehicle when he was with the Navy was a second-hand ’96 Nissan Terrano, which he sold in 2007 to finance his campaign. The fact is that in 2003, the CIDG filed an ill-gotten wealth case relating to Trillanes’s alleged vehicles but the case was dismissed because the documents the CIDG submitted in support of its allegation were found to be spurious; they showed that the vehicles were supposedly registered under Trillanes’s name in the year 1900! This could be confirmed from the records of the Office of the Ombudsman.

    2. House in an exclusive village. – Sen. Trillanes does not own a house in an exclusive village in Antipolo, Rizal, as alleged by Mr. Tulfo. He never did. His parents-in-law own a house at the Town and Country Homes, a middle class subdivision in Antipolo. In fact, Trillanes did not own a house at all when he was still with the Navy and even up to now. He and his family used to live at his wife’s quarters at the PMA in Baguio City. When in Metro Manila, he stays either at his parent’s house in Caloocan or with his in-laws. It was only last May that Sen. Trillanes acquired a 300 sqm lot in the same subdivision in Antipolo through the PAG-IBIG’s Home Financing II Program for which he will be paying for 25 years. You can verify these claims from the Register of Deeds of Rizal and from PAG-IBIG.

    3. Tiff with a Dutchman and his Filipino wife. – The couple referred to, Anastacia Santarin and Adrian De Jager, have been locked in a dispute with a certain Estelita Pabalan over a vacant lot (there was no house) in Novaliches since 1999. Said property was leased by Mr. Trillanes—who did not know of the dispute—as parking lot for his mother’s rent-a-van business in early 2003. Sometime in March 2003, Santarin and De Jager forced their way into the premises, shoved the caretaker out, and refused to leave. When Trillanes was informed of the incident, he went to talk to Ms. Santarin. He never met Mr. De Jager. Due to the couple’s refusal to leave, Trillanes reported the matter to the Barangay Chairman in the area. That was the extent of his participation in this matter.

    A few days later, Pabalan and the caretaker reported the matter to the police. When they came to investigate, the policemen were attacked by De Jager with a knife. The policemen arrested De Jager and charged him in court with attempted homicide. He was incarcerated because of this and not because of anything that Trillanes did. In fact, Sen. Trillanes had no involvement whatsoever in either the land dispute case or in De Jager’s criminal case. Court records will bear this out.

    After the Oakwood incident, this couple tried to cut a deal with the government by offering themselves as witnesses against Mr. Trillanes in exchange for a favorable ruling in the land dispute. Fortunately, the police and/or prosecutors found their claim to be dubious and incredible. The couple later filed a case against Trillanes before the Ombudsman but the case was dismissed for lack of merit.

    4. Abusive behavior. – Mr. Tulfo claims that Sen. Trillanes was abusive when he was a mere Navy lieutenant and concludes “much more so now that you’re already a senator”. Likewise, Mr. Tulfo also wrote: “[W]hen you were in jail at the Intelligence Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (Isafp), you were a problem-detainee as you always quarreled with your jailers.”

    Apart from Mr. Tulfo and the De Jager couple with their bogus and recycled claims, however, we are not aware of anyone who claims to have been victimized by Mr. Trillanes’ abuses.

    The next time Mr. Tulfo writes an article, we are hoping that he would at least take the time to check his sources, verify his facts and get the side of the affected party, just like how a good journalist is supposed to. Otherwise, his articles do not deserve to be published in a respected newspaper like the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

    In the interest of fairness, we are hoping that you will publish this response in full.

    Very truly yours,


    Legal Counsel of

    Sen. Antonio “Sonny” F. Trillanes IV

  82. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 9, 2009 7:09 am

    Norberto Gonzales, our National Security Adviser was/is a member of Light-a-fire Movement which includes, according to self-confessed terrorist, Harvard-educated and the movement’s founder Ed Olaguer himself, ex-Sen President Jovito Salonga, Fr. Horacio Dela Costa SJ, Francisco “Soc” Rodrigo, Alfonso Yuchengco, Fr. Toti Olaguer SJ, Fr. Archie Intengan SJ, US exiles ABS-CBN’s Eugenio Lopez, Jake Almeda Lopez, Steve Psinakis, ex-Senator Serge Osmeña, ex-Senator Raul Manglapus, Cong. Raul Daza, Otto Jimenez, AIM professor Gaston Ortigas, Namfrel’s Gus Lagman, and 60-year-old grandmother Ester Misa Jimenez.

    They started out using the lowly KATOL as time delay device to burn known Marcos crony-owned establishments like Sulo Hotel, Rustan’s, and the floating casino. It was symbolic in the beginning. Katol symbolized Katol-lik Action. Catholic members including priests planned for bigger actions.

    They could not wait longer for the C4 explosives promised by the US, they started buying TNT dynamites for a planned new year’s day revelry bombing which sale was monitored and busted by the military. Olaguer and his friends were arrested and tried by military tribunals for years which sentenced 4 of them to death.

    Ninoy Aquino, Lopez’ in-law Steve Psinakis, and Nats Tañada took the cudgels and renamed the group April 6 Liberation Movement which now included Victor Burns Lovely (what a name!) and American married to a Pinay who lost his arm and an eye when a bomb he was carrying exploded prematurely. Lovely later admitted to the bombing of a convention of American travel agents in PICC for which the showband of famous singer Nonoy Zuñiga was performing. Nonoy suffered in the blast, doctors had to amputate his leg. My bestfriend’s father, who was the band’s manager, was missed by the bomb by a few seconds. Lovely much later appeared in media this time pitched for Marcos and identified his cohorts.

    Those who believe Ninoy Aquino is a real hero, better think twice. These are the reasons why Gringo Honasan et al believed the government of Cory was being run by communists.

    These events were narrated by Ed Olaguer in his book “Light A Fire II – Confessions of a Jesuit Terrorist Son.”

  83. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 9, 2009 7:18 am

    Recycled yang issues against AT4. All have been answered in the past, most especially in PDI where the muddafukka Tulfo writes. I doubt that Tulfo has not read those.

    Duwag naman iyang si Mon Tulfo, pagmamalaki lang niya yung mga baril niya na hindi niya man lang nabunot nung sampalin (nakakalalaki!) at tutukan siya ng baril nung isang linggo sa isang party.

    Sino nga yang nakabangga ni Tulfo, Ellen?

  84. myrna - July 9, 2009 7:47 am

    si atong ang yata ang nakabangga ni tulfo dun sa party.

  85. chi - July 9, 2009 7:51 am

    May baril hindi nabunot ng sampalin, naunahan o sadyang duwag ang “muddafukka” Tulfo?!

    I remember that second-hand ’96 Nissan Terrano, may nauna lang sa atin na bumili niyan, di ba Tongue? hehehe! Ka mura ngang naibenta ni Trillanes ang kotse na yan na iningangakngak ni Tulfo.

  86. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 9, 2009 7:54 am

    Naalala mo pa pala chi. Kursunada ko yung Terrano na yun. Yung Green yata yun.

  87. parasabayan - July 9, 2009 8:05 am

    Gee Tongue, that was a lot of info! You are not the only one who said that, to think twice considering Ninoy a hero. I was still too young then and too naive, I guess…heh,heh,heh. Kaya lang panay din ang punta ko sa Plaza Miranda noon. I just stopped when the bombings got worse.

  88. hKofw - July 9, 2009 8:52 am

    Salamat kay Atty. REYNALDO B. ROBLES sa kanyang paliwamag ukol sa paratang ni Tulfo. Parang nabunutan ako ng tinik dahil, tulad ng mga ibang nagtiwala sa butihing Senador, ang mga nasabing paratang ay hindi dapat ipagwalang-bahala.

    Bihira-bihira na lamang ang mga taong mabubuti na katulad ni Sen Trillantes na hindi iniisip ang sariling kapakanan makapaglingkod lamang sa bayan. Para siyang si ‘David’ sa Bibliya na handang labanan ang mga ‘Goliaths’ sa gobyerno na patuloy na umaalipin at nagsasamantala sa kahinaan ng mga Pilipino. Dalangin ko na bigyan pa siya ng ibayong lakas at karunungan at proteksiyon laban sa mga masasamang elemento at galamay ng mga halimaw sa ating lipunan.

  89. hKofw - July 9, 2009 8:56 am

    “The next time Mr. Tulfo writes an article, we are hoping that he would at least take the time to check his sources, verify his facts and get the side of the affected party, just like how a good journalist is supposed to.” – Atty. Robles

    Lalo lamang nagtumibay ang aking paghanga kay Sen. Trillantes dahil ang ginawa lamang niya sa pamamagitan ng kanyang abogado ay bigyan ng payo si Mr. Tulfo at publisher niya. Kung nangyari ang ganitong paratang na walang basehan sa mga Pidal o mga Tuta nila sigurado idedemanda na agad ang taong nagparatang.

    Mabuhay ka Sen. Trillantes. Sana ay dumami ang mga ‘David’ na katulad mo. Pagpalain ka ng Diyos na Maykapal.

  90. hKofw - July 9, 2009 9:03 am

    Dapat humingi ng tawad si Mr. Tulfo kay Sen. Trillantes. Kung hindi niya magagawa ito dapat na siyang magretiro at magtinda ng To-fu (Bean Curd o Tokwa).

  91. hKofw - July 9, 2009 9:26 am

    “Salamat sa nahalungkat mo na link, mahina ako sa ganyang trabaho…” – chi
    Walang anuman, chi. Parti ito ng ating pagtulong kay Ellen sa kanyang paghahatid ng katotohanan at kaalaman sa mga taong patuloy na nililinlang ng gobyerno.

  92. habib - July 9, 2009 11:44 am

    mon tulfo, a recycled journalist (?), kagaya din ni duckling paredes.

    mga doble cara, double blade.

    sobra pa sa swastika!

  93. patria adorada - July 9, 2009 12:52 pm

    ramon tulpo,puta tu madre.

  94. Dodong - July 9, 2009 9:26 pm

    All we need to do is to ignore this Tulfo. Tulfo also tried to destroy Lacson with all the allegations in vain. Kilalang corrupt si Tulfo. Gumanti siya noon nang binulgar ni Lacson ang payola. Tumatanggap ng payola si Tulfo. Kailan kayo nakakita na laging nakatambay at umiinom ang loko sa mga mamahalin club sa may QC? He has a convoy of Marine bodyguards. He carries heavy weapons. How could he afford all these with his income as a journalist?

  95. norpil - July 9, 2009 9:52 pm

    baka naman malaki ang bayad ng daily inquirer sa tulfong ito, pero habang gumagamit siya ng heavy weapons ay nawawala naman ang power ng kanyang pen.

  96. luzviminda - July 9, 2009 10:36 pm

    Baka naman may ‘pagkabakla’ yang si Tulfo at mahilig sa Tsismaks (tsismis). Siya ang pinupuntahan at binabayaran ng mga taong may maitim na agenda para ikalat ang mga TSISMIS. Naniniwala akong nasa payroll si TOFU este Tulfo ng mga Pidal. Wala kredibilidad yang si Tulfo!

    At kay Tongue, Bilib ako talaga sa mga sources mo! Ang Galing!

    At thanks for the update Ate Ellen sa sagot ni Trillanes!

  97. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 9, 2009 11:49 pm

    psb, luzviminda,
    All those intel reports during Marcos time including dossiers on his key enemies are now coming out to be true. The CPP-NPA has admitted to bombing Plaza Miranda. They also admitted responsibility for the killing fields. Olaguer has come clean and admitted those Martial Law era bombings. So did Psinakis, et al. Salonga has admitted complicity in other acts. All things we (including me) previously attributed to Marcos and his henchmen.

  98. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 10, 2009 12:44 am

    One piece of the puzzle that I cannot figure, Ka Mentong Tiu-Laurel has some enlightening revelations :

  99. Diego K. Guerrero - July 10, 2009 12:51 am

    Di totoo pala ang Arroyo-US conspiracy, dubbed “Operation Greenbase” if you connect the dots. Uncle Sam maybe working behind the scene in the latest series of bombings. Who knows?

  100. parasabayan - July 10, 2009 2:00 am

    Ka Mentong is absolutely right! The US and all the other foreign countries (EU, Malaysia) interested in Mindanao will eventually benefit from this chaos in Mindanao. These interested parties will be the beneficiaries of the 100% ownership that the boobuwit is pushing for in the lower house.

    Wasn’t Sen Trillianes the one who exposed the “Operation Greenbase”?

    Instead of creating this chaos(bombings, displacement of our brother moslems), why don’t these interested parties just legitimately partner with the Filipino people (our Moslem brothers) to harness these oil sources? Then US can put all their guards in the region without being questioned thereafter. Right now, the US is squatting in Mindanao under the “Balikatan” project kuno. Ang gusto yata nila eh kukunin nila ang gusto nila ng “short cut” through the boobuwit. I hope the MILF and the Abus will be smart enough NOT to be used by these intruders. The military know how these bombs are made by these terrorist groups so it is really so easy for the military to do the bombs themselves and deploy them and blame the terrorist groups for their own acts.Clever. But NOTHING in the reign of this illegitimate boobuwit has been done right anyway, unless there are compromises and tongpats. Will this Mindanao takeover be the compromise to free the fat pig from the US blacklisted list and to allow boobuwit to be exiled in countries friendly to the US should she be booted out from the Philippines? Marcos was the creation of the US too, wasn’t he? Look where he ended up in?

  101. Dodong - July 10, 2009 6:28 am

    Ang Plaza Miranda bombing ay sinisi kay Marcos na hindi naman niya gawa. After decades later long after Ninoy’s death, some pointed to Ninoy as the mastermind. Wala siya doon noong gabing iyon.

    Regarding foreigners’ meddling in Mindanao, hindi ito iba sa ginagawa nila ngayon sa Iran. A British source now revealed that UK used and using covert activities in that country. And if you speak of UK, the US is not far behind. Iyan dalawa naman iyan noon pang magkasama sa mga kalokohan.

  102. Ellen - July 10, 2009 8:45 am

    Thanks HKofw, Ha Enchong, and Tongue for the link to Sen. Trillanes 2003 article on that dirty trick by teh Arroyo administration.

    It’s only now that my Globe visibility was able to connect. Haaay! I missed sending my column to Malaya tuloy.

    Anyway, the fact that up to now, yun na yun pa rin ang ginagamit kay Sen. Trillanes means na wala silang maisip na black prop. lahat kasi na ginagawa, bulilyaso.

  103. martin - July 10, 2009 3:57 pm

    TRILLANES FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016!!! a strong willed leader. a decisive no nonsense senator. sonny trillanes for president!

  104. norpil - July 10, 2009 7:48 pm

    if there is a need to change the constitution, it is that one does not have to reach a certain age before being eligible for the presidency. if a person who is not properly elected, a cheat and a liar, became president why can’t any adult who has the makings of a leader be eligible.

  105. Liwayway-Gawgaw - July 11, 2009 10:52 pm


    huwag kang mag-alala. darating tayo d’yan.

    tadyakan muna natin, una suso palabas ng malakanyang si Lola Dodolittle-na-laylay-pa.

    TTwisted – One Norberto Gonzales I know is also a Harvard educated, an attorney and married to my friend. I can not in the life of me imagine why Norberto would do such a thing. One thing I know S. Salonga got $360,000.000.00 from RSBenedicto so Benedicto can go home to the Philippines. plus he pledged a lot of his assets to Salonga. That does not make Salonga free from crime. Knowing that these politicians have earned their wealth by crooked means. There is no end to their thievery.

    Parasabayan – I never thought Ninoy Aquino is a hero. In 1967 we were in Baguio during the Holyweek, a group of our barkada we were listening to Ninoy, he was talking about he was going to make a bomb as big as a match box. His target was of course Marcos and the rich people of the Philippines. He was so bitter when he talk about the rich, at that time I thought he was rich too. He sound very vendictive, arrogant and a knew it all person. I thought to myself he does posses the calibre of a decent person nor a leader to be. I thought all the while that he will not be any different from the past presidents nor Marcos. But knowing now we have the worst president Pandak.

    I agree dandaw. Ninoy was never a hero. Kaya nga hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit ang pangalan na Manila International Airport ginawang Ninoy Aquino Airport. Ninoy was only gifted with excellent public speaking skill. He was an eloquent speaker…very articulate. But I don’t think he had the “it” in his brain like Marcos. Palibhasa kasi journalist siyempre magaling sa dada at imbento. Ninoy reminds me of Dick Gordon today…long playing speaker.

    Mart, I’m with you in “Trillanes for president in 2016!!!”

    2016? Seventeen years from today?

    How I wish am still alive to see the much awaited changes in leadership.

  112. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 14, 2009 6:46 am

    Lumabas ka na diyan sa time machine mo. Tapos i-reset mo yang kalendaryo. 2009 na ngayon, hindi 1999. Seven years from today yung 2016. hehehe.

  113. chi - July 14, 2009 7:44 am

    Ano ba yan, Liway? Pati ako ay nagmatik-matik kung libre pa ako sa alzheimers 17 years from today, ha!ha!ha!

  114. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 14, 2009 4:53 pm

    BTW, MGen Juancho Sabban was finally appointed as Marine Commandant. Akala ko, masisilat pa ng mga sipsip yang pwesto na yan.

    Oo nga, ano?

    Eniweys, right or left, i-u-turn n’yo na rin, napabilang din kayo sa daliri, hane?

    2016. Yakang yaka pa.

  117. habib - July 14, 2009 8:54 pm

    Bakit ganu’n? ‘Aputol!

    Pati ako, kasama na dalire ng mga paa ko, nagbilang din.

    Siguro, sa panahong ‘yun, may tungkod na si Liway!

    He he heeeh!

  118. habib - July 14, 2009 8:55 pm

    Inaaaang! Bakit nagkadoble na sila?

  119. Liwayway-Gawgaw - July 14, 2009 10:28 pm

    Wow! Si Gen Sabban na ang Marine Commandant?

    Sayang! Dapat si Majorette General Joanna Martir. Sayang naman ‘yung exemplary achievements niya noong nagsunog siya ng kilay sa pag-aaral ng Word at Excel sa yu-hes-hey ng biruin ninyong kulang isa’t kala’ating taon?

    Walang puwedeng maka-breyk ng rekord na ‘yun, ah?

    Sayang talaga. Pagkakataon na sana ng Marines na magkaroon ng commandant na hindi palaging giyera ang iniisip kundi pagpapabyuti at pamamasyal pati na rin ball room dancing, mall at parlor hopping!

  120. Liwayway-Gawgaw - July 14, 2009 10:30 pm

    Kayo, ha?

    Kasalanan ko ba kung ireng aking kalkyuleyter ay bobo?

    Buti nga, adbans, eh.

    ‘Tsura n’yo!

  121. TonGuE-tWisTeD - July 15, 2009 6:13 am

    Masarap ka palang pautangin, Liway. Pag sinigil kita ng sobra di mo pansin, hahaha.

    Oy, Tongue, hindi naman ako mangungutang, no!

    Kahit poor ako hindi ko ugali ang umutang dahil ayaw kong merong iniisip na obligasyong babayaran pagdating ng suweldo ko.

    Huwag mong lalakihan ang tubo, ha?
