House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II says Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco should be ready for possible expulsion due to his testimony at the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
I say go ahead, expel Tiangco and EXPECT PNOY TO FOLLOW! Everybody knows that Pnoy is the main man behind the move to oust Corona.
Get rid of Tiangco to prove to the Filipino people, and to the world, that under Pnoy’s government, NO OPPOSITION or adverse EXPOSE is allowed.
So that the people will realize that we are NOT UNDER A DEMOCRACY, wherein free speech is a right, but in a DICTATORSHIP in which only what the government and its allies want should be the be-all and end-all.
The same scenario which ultimately triggered EDSA 1, if you will remember.
Gonzales says the possible expulsion is only a fair warning, with a lot of House members ”medyo grinding their teeth, talagang galit.”
Really? Then why didn’t he name the supposed angry House members to prove their existence and the truth of what he described as a ‘fair warning to Tiangco?
Gonzales likened Tiangco’s testimony to an attack on the integrity of pro-impeachment congressmen.
But he didn’t DISPROVE Tiangco’s allegations to redeem the supposedly tarnished integrity of offended House members. Instead, Gonzales goes straight to repeating Tiangco’s possible ouster.
And this is still a fair warning by Gonzales’ standards.
So if Gonzales and his allies will push through with expelling Tiangco, they had better have a literally air-tight case!
But for their own sake, they had better realize that by threatening Tiangco with possible ouster instead of disproving his allegations, they’re practically saying that he’s telling the truth.
That there was irregular conduct in the preparation and signing of the impeachment complaint.
Whatever happens after the impeachment, the people will NEVER FORGET that they had been DISHONEST. Corona’s trial is not the BE-ALL and END-ALL of Filipino life.
From the readers:
THE REAL VALUE OF TIANGCO’S TESTIMONY!
Congressman Toby Tiangco proved that: No one was coerced or forced to sign the complaint. MORE THAN the required number which is 1/3 or 95 House members signed the complaint, hence trial shall forthwith proceed in the Senate. PNoy is NOT a vindictive President because Tiangco, still received his PDAF.
The impeachment case is a 60-page document that is impossible for anybody to read that in few minutes.

This is the "tuwid na daan" version of the President.
Toby Tiangco is a man of principle AND courage. The people of Navotas should be proud of the man!
It is important to note that such syndicated minds in both the Executive branch of government and House of Representatives was out and on record. Before, it’s just plain common knowledge. The tradition of the Executive corrupting the majority and the majority bullying the minority was out in the open and testified into the Senate records. In short, kung walang corrupt walang mahirap is just a snappy line that manipulated the majority of the electorate masses.

The testimony has no value. The court has long accepted the impeachment complaint, hence, moot and academic. The intention is to delay the proceedings.
Salute to Congressman Toby Tiangco for being brave enough to tell the truth for the welfare of our country. Calling on all other congressman to come out and tell the truth.
Buti na lang, naririto parati si Boyet Antonio para tayo ay warningan ng mga danger signs na kaniyang nakikita at nararamdaman sa ating kapaligiran. Mabuhay po kayo, Sir Boyet!
It is about time that the public knew that pork barrel or PDAF is a means to an end in a country like ours, where the purpose is to maintain three co- equal branches of government. It is time to rethink whether this form of government is really what is suitable for us.

I don’t think it’s useless, It has a purpose, and the defense knows it better than us.
While the trial is going on, pork barrel is still being used by the Executive branch as leverage. NOTHING has changed. What pisses me off is how this admin is passing itself, especially with the press release on why CJ Corona must go, when it is doing the same deplorable acts. What I am curious about is the SILENCE of Biazon. He has always showed to the country his tenacity to stand up for what is right and not let the wrong pass.

Somebody muted Biazon?

Thank you, Tiangco.
No value. If Tiangco is telling the truth, then, this is how corrupt the Noynoy Aquino administration is, using taxpayers' money to get what his family wants, Hacienda Lusita, the land they swindled from us.
INDIRECT PRESSURE, NOT REMINDER, ON TIANGCO

Grabe na talaga to! hahayaan na lang ba nating ganito? omg!
Unti-unting nabubuksan ang bulok na sistema.
VALTE SINAGAD NA ANG KAPAL NG MUKHA!
Valte and Lacierda are always at a loss when the topic touches on the economy, but they are very well versed when it comes to GMAs incarceration and CJ Corona's ouster. 30
