Calling on officials and members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC):
A story in The Philippine Star today says the INC had ‘surrendered’ to the wishes of President Aquino to support a guilty verdict for Chief Justice Renato Corona.
This supposedly triggered the change of heart of six senators who had initially decided to acquit Corona.
Somebody please shed light on this. Personally, I don’t believe it.
The consistent information that I got was when INC officials received Pnoy at their central headquarters in Quezon City, they BLUNTLY told him that they DO NOT interfere in politics.
And that Pnoy had better focus on more pressing problems of the country like unemployment and hunger than on Corona’s impeachment.
But my sources said the INC NEVER told Pnoy that they’re supportive of his obsession to oust Corona through the impeachment. Neither did the group express support to Pnoy on everything.
What strengthened my belief of the truth of this information is Pnoy NEVER BOASTED of INC support to Corona’s impeachment, after his visit to the central headquarters until the verdict yesterday.
If he had indeed earned the support of the group, he would have PROCLAIMED IT HIMSELF.
But he did not. Even Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda did not reveal anything to this effect when asked by reporters of what transpired during Pnoy’s visit.
Corona’s impeachment trial may be over but an official statement from the
INC is IMPORTANT more than ever.
If the supposed INC support for Pnoy on Corona’s impeachment is a LIE,
then it’s a SHAMELESS DECEPTION meant to condition the public mind that Pnoy remains immensely popular as before.
And should be BLINDLY FOLLOWED by everyone, REGARDLESS of what he’ll do, including acts by his henchmen or lapdogs in Malacanang and throughout the bureaucracy, and their politician allies.
It will also be solid proof that we have GULLIBLE senators in our midst.
If the alleged INC support is true, then so be it. At least, the people will be enlightened on what is really happening in our country. I just hope that the INC has rock-solid basis for their decision.
But until the INC issues an official statement, allow me to appeal to everyone NOT TO BE MISLED.
For your own sake.
From our friends:
LET’S CHECK THIS OUT, GUYS…
Clue? From what branch of the gov't?
PHINNY DELOS REYES
The Ombudsman previously said that she initiated her investigation based on newspaper reports. Will she investigate this time?
Sooner or later ....it will come out. We just have to keep pounding at them.
Tama, Ka Boyet. Dapat, magtulong-tulong na malaman kung sino ito at malaman ang mga informasyon tungkol sa accounts ng hinayupak na kawatan na yan!
ED SANTELICES of Quezon City
Miriam is surely aware of this and I believe she's already taking steps to bring it out in the open, as she had hinted in explaining her vote yesterday....ABANGAN!
DELIA PASION SANIDAD
Drilon the botcha.
Let me guess… Lito Lapid? Ah, hindi, Drilon?
TIBONG CAGAYANO of Lal-Lo, Cagayan
Hindi ba ang sabi ni Ombudsman Morales ay puwede niyang imbestigahan ang isang bagay tungkol sa katiwalian ng isang government official na ang kanyang basehan ay isang news article lamang? So, ibigay sa diyaryo ang impormasyon dahil puwede namn nilang i-claim na confidential yung source nila. Oooooppps, mali pala. Dapat pala ay Corona ang apelyido na nakalagay sa diyaryo para imbestigahan ng Ombudsman.
Go on brother, we will support you. Habang mainit pa. Then, pag nakuha natin ang details, let’s go to the respectable congressmen (Toby/Mandanas/sino pa yung isa?) and the three equally respectable senators lalo na kay Sen Santiago na malapit nang umalis to serve in the International Criminal Court.

Gets ko na kung sino. Ang kapal ng mukha niya.
Unmask that baboy.
Si Drilon na iyan for sure…galling sa IIoilo International Airport .

Sana, may maglakas-loob sa mga taga AMLC na isiwalat kung sino man iyan.
Ayokong isipin, baka ito ay mauwi din sa hearsay evidence. Sabagay, kung ang hearsay evidence ng prosecutor ay tinanggap sa impeachment court, baka ito puwede rin.
I pray that you get this evidence against you-know-who as it will tip the scales in our favor. The yellows might have won this round but in convicting someone over a non-impeachable offense, PNoy has opened the gates to his own DOOM.
DEATH OF DUE PROCESS, TRIUMPH OF LIES!
MARY ROSEBUD ONG
Charged by the crooks then judged by the crooks.... what can we expect?
PRIMO CRISOSTOMO of Farmville, Virginia, USA
Indeed, "honorable, clean, just, and holy" people, who BELIEVE in "hearsay and unverified documents" as SOLID EVIDENCE, have already given their GUILTY verdict to the Chief Justice... what more can we expect! God save the Philippines.
Gusto ko lahat lahat ng mga sinusulat ninyo, Sir Boyet. Huwag sana po kayong hihinto!
Talagang danger na iyan. Baka magkakaroon na tayo ng Law of Lies... authored by these inutil-tongressmen.
JAN VICTOR AYSON
Even the impeachment of CJ Corona has good schemes. They are undermined by selfish motives of the President such as railroading the complaint and , maneuvering to keep control of Hacienda Luisita.
CECILL;E IGNACIO of Manila
Acquittal na iyan. BOBO na lang ang senador na BOBOTO FOR CONVICTION! Hanggang sa huli makikita mo ang kabobohan ng prosection at galing ng defense.
Well said, bro…get well soon.
Hi, Boyet, Well stated. I just hope you still have a regular column in the newspaper 30.
