With your permission, boys and girls, I’ll do this piece in Tagalog.
Sa mga nagbabalak sumama sa ‘people power’ rally kuno bukas na binubuo umano ni Social Welfare Sec. Dinky Soliman, SAGUTIN muna ninyo ang mga tanong na ito bago kayo magdesisyon:
Sa ilalim ng batas, ang isang tao ay pinapalaay na inosente hanggang hindi napapatunayang nagkasala.
May napatunayan na ba ng walang duda ang prosekusyon na pagkakasala ni Chief Justice Renato
? Nadinig na ba ang panig o depensa ni Corona ? Corona
Sinasabi sa batas na ang Senate Impeachment Court LAMANG, AT WALA NG IBA, ang magdedesisyon kung nagkasala si
o hindi. Nagdesisyon na ba? Corona
Matatangap ba ninyo ang mahatulan at maparusahan agad sa anumang ibibintang sa inyo ng walang anuman o hindi tapos na paglilitis? Ng hindi man lang didinggin ang inyong panig?
Naniniwala, at gusto pa ba ninyo, ng demokrasya kung saan BATAS, LEGAL NA PROSESO at PANTAY NA KARAPATAN ng tao ang pinaiiral? Hindi tulad sa komunistang pamamalakad kung saan ang kagustuhan lamang ng mga namumuno ang nasusunod.
Mayroon na ba kayong nadinig na KAHIT ISANG MALINAW, DETALYADO at KATANGGAP-TANGGAP na paliwanag na tiyak na gaganda ang buhay nating Sambayanan kung mawawala si Corona sa Korte Suprema?
Kung sasama kayo sa rally na binubuo umano ni Dinky at nagkagulo, may garantiya ba kayo na may gagastos sa doctor o sa ospital kung kayo ay masasaktan?
Sa loob ng mahigit isa’t-kalahating taon ng pagiging presidente ni Pnoy, gumaan o gjumanda na ba ang buhay ng Sambayanang Pilipino?
Bumaba ba ang presyo ng mga pagkain? Gasolina? Gamot? Kuryente? Edukasyon? May narinig o nakita na ba kayong ginagawang kahit isang SOLUSYON si Pnoy para alinman sa mga ito?
May narinig o nakita na ba kayong KAHIT ISANG PROYEKTO O PROGRAMA, na TULUY-TULOY, para sa mahihirap mula nang maging presidente si Pnoy?
Uulitin ko lang ang isang bagay: Ang Conditional Cash Transfer ng DSWD ay orihinal na programa ni dating Pangulong Gloria Arroyo, hindi ni Pnoy o ni Dinky.
Pagisipan ninyong MABUTING MABUTI ang mga katanungang ito, mga kababayan. Kayo na ang humatol kung karapat-dapat ba o hindi na PAGAMIT KAYO kay Dinly, at kay Pnoy.

DANGER SIGNS FROM
TRIAL PROSECUTORS! CORONA
EPOY ENRIQUEZ of Las PInas
"If it doesn't fit, you must acquit.” So someone else’s danger sign. The phrase became Johnny Cochran's mantra in trying to persuade jurors that the gloves tried on by OJ Simpson at his murder trial didn't fit and (testimonies) inconsistent and full of holes. 30
Watch out, ladies and gentlemen!
Reliable sources have informed me that a Cabinet member has just met with officials of the Black and White Movement for rallies against Chief Justice Renato Corona and to pressure the Senate impeachment court.
My sources said the first mobilization or rally has been scheduled as early as MONDAY!
The rally will be portrayed in pro-Pnoy media outfits as solid proof that it’s really the people, and not just Pnoy, who wants
out. Propagandists will make it appear that the people’s patience for the removal of Corona is fast running thin. Corona
My sources said Malacanang and the
prosecutors admit among themselves that with the poorly prepared articles of impeachment and weak evidence, they won’t win in a fair trial. Corona
“And Pnoy will certainly not take defeat sitting down,” my sources said.
So whether they pull off this dirty trick starting Monday or any other day, DON’T BE FOOLED, people! If you truly believe in democracy and justice, DON’T LET ANYONE MANIPULATE YOU!
There is NO PUBLIC CLAMOR yet for
’s ouster! Corona
Except for Pnoy, the Black and White Movement and leftist or communist-leaning groups, NOBODY else has stood up to rally the people to stand up and demand
’s head. Corona
Remember, Pnoy and these two factions DON’T REPRESENT or SPEAK for the people as a whole. There’s NO PROOF either that they’re followers or sympathizers are rapidly increasing.
Pnoy and the prosecution boast that evidence against
is SOLID. But here they are announcing that they are eyeing almost 100 witnesses more against the Chief Justice, Corona
Up to 100 witnesses more for their purported solid evidence, as against the defense’s 15.
With this is their REPEATED pleadings to presiding Senator-Judge Juan Ponce Enrile for leniency on the way they conduct themselves in the impeachment court.
And their OUTRIGHT DISREGARD and MOCKERY of the senator-judges in ignoring an admonition by the impeachment court to them not to discuss their evidence and related issue sin public.
The impeachment trial is in progress, guys,
The Senate is the impeachment court, AS PROVIDED FOR in the CONSTITUTION! Reviews are one in saying that both the prosecution and the defense are being fairly treated by Enrile.
So there’s NO REASON to join or support any moves on the streets for
’s ouster. If Corona ’s really guilty, the law empowers the Senate to remove him from office. Corona
The only thing left to do, ladies and gentlemen, is to wait for the trial to end and for the senators to decide.
DON’T BE A PART of any moves to destroy our democracy.

DISGUSTING PLAN 100 OF
SANTOS of London, United Kingdom
Tiigilan na ang prosekusyong ito. Marami pang mas makabuluhang bagay ang dapat pagtuunan nang pansin ng kasalukuyang pamahalaan at hanggang humahaba ang prosekusyon ay patuloy lamang nilang nilulustay ang kaban ng bayan. Mas mahalagang kumilos silang nasa posisyon kung paanong magkakalaman ang bawa't hapag kainan ng sambayanang nalugmok na sa hirap ng pangaraw-araw na buhay.
RODEL RAMIL of Kowloon City,
100 witnesses? Marami na pala silang nabingwit. Display lang yan para masabi nilang " Eto kami oh,marami kaming witness dahil matibay ang aming ebidensya " Sabi nga ni Senate President Enrile: "Kung matibay ang ebidensya, hindi na kailangan ng maraming witnesses. "

The plan by the
impeachment trail prosecution to summon up to 100 witnesses is both PATHETIC and DISGUSTING! Corona
Whether they admit it or not, it only means they know they have a VERY WEAK CASE up to now, MORE THAN A MONTH after transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
NORMALLY, complainants first gather complete and compelling evidence and witnesses before filing their case before any court.
But now, it’s CRYSTAL-CLEAR that the prosecution transmitted the articles of impeachment to the Senate WITHOUT ANY SOLID PROOF of their allegations against Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Otherwise, THEY WOULD NOT NEED 100 witnesses if they’re convinced they have a strong case. And take note, people, this is still not a fishing expedition for them as far as the prosecution is concerned.
What makes it DESPICABLY DISGUSTING is the 100 witnesses will prolong the trial indefinitely. The longer the trial, the more taxpayers’ money, OUR MONEY, will be spent.
Lead defense counsel Serafin Cuevas, when asked by Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago several days ago how many witnesses do they intend to present, readily replied they have 15 lined up and ready for presentation, along with their documentary evidence.
Asked with the same question, lead prosecutor Niel Tupas Jr. said he would still have to consult with his fellow prosecutors.
If the defense can be ready with their witnesses and proof at this stage of the trial, there’s no valid reason why the prosecution can’t, considering they were the ones who filed the impeachment complaint.
The 100 witnesses is shining proof of how INCOMPETENT the prosecution is, and how HASTY the congressmen prosecutors were in filing the impeachment complaint before the Senate just to please Pnoy.
We’re the ones paying now for that incompetence and haste.
Not just with our taxes, but also with the time congressmen- prosecutors are wasting on their weak case, time which they’re supposed to spend on writing laws to improve the quality of our lives.
THE VERY REASON why we had voted them!
As they say in English, it’s either you have it or you don’t. If the congressmen-prosecutors don’t, then they should have the DECENCY to stop their impeachment circus, and get back to work as lawmakers.
MAHIYA NAMAN KAYO, KAHIT KONTI! 30
The CONTINUED and OUTRIGHT DISRESPECT of the
impeachment trial prosecution of the Senate impeachment court’s advice against discussing their evidence in public is painting a VERY DANGEROUS SCENARIO! Corona
THEY WON’T ACCEPT DEFEAT, especially in the eyes of the people.
They have to brainwash the public NON-STOP so that when they resort to ILLEGAL means directly or indirectly just to get rid of Chief Justice Renato Corona once and for all, the people won’t mind.
Never mind if they will display ARROGANCE to the hilt in ignoring the Senate impeachment court.
And anyone who has the STOMACH and the FACE to mock an authority as high as the Senate impeachment court with OPEN DEFIANCE of its admonition is DEFINITELY CAPABLE of anything CRIMINAL and CHAOTIC just to get what he or she wants.
As I’ve written in an earlier blog, you don’t reject something lawful with an equally legal action. And those unlawful responses may include anything and everything.
Two possible gimmicks:
Paying thousands of poor and desperate people to stage even a semblance of another people power revolution’ and spending without limits (everything compliments of OUR TAXES, OF COURSE) on propaganda efforts in media to hopefully influence the general public to join.
Staging SCRIPTED ACTS of violence or terrorism, wherein innocent people will get hurt or killed, until Pnoy uses these as an excuse to ask permission from Congress to declare martial law and begin his one-man rule!
Before anyone says I’m over-reacting:
No matter how Malacanang denies it, Pnoy’s BURNING DESIRE to appoint his own Chief Justice can only mean that he wants to CONTROL THE JUDICIARY, through the Supreme Court
If he fails to get the Supreme Court, it must be ABOLISHED.
The fastest way to abolish the current Supreme Court and come up with your own set of justices for a new one is through ONE-MAN RULE in whatever form like a revolutionary or martial law government!.
So to those monitoring the trial with a ONE-SIDED focus in favor of the prosecution, are you ready for these scenarios? Are you ready for the additional hardships it will entail? Can you accept Pnoy as a one-man ruler?
Think VERY, VERY CAREFULLY, please!

De Lima is motivated to do all these gung-ho style maneuvers because of her political ambition to become senator of this banana republic of ours. In return, she is becoming a political pawn for P-noy who is fast becoming more of a dictator than a true statesman that he professes. Anyway, the political landscape drastically changes when the local and senatorial elections are launched by December of this year.
TUWID NA DAAN IS PURE BULLSHIT!
Hi, Boyet! With regards to Sec. Llamas newest controversy, he should explain to the public his going gaga over faked DVDs. Being a high-ranking official he should always remember that he is supposed to be a role model of decency and honesty. It will not be a big issue if he is an ordinary citizen. With Pnoy’s men, their actions are simply abuse of authority. Konting kahihiyan para maging makatotohanan ang "tuwid na daan"

Justice Sec. Leila de Lima demonstrated her DICTATORIAL mentality before former National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Magtanggol Gatdula was removed from office.
Gatdula had questioned De Lima's appointment of Rafael Ragos as NBI Deputy Director. He said Ragos' nomination was never endorsed by the NBI Personnel Selection Board (PSB) and that the appointment bypassed the bureau’s policies.
Gatdula said under Section 2 of Republic Act No. 2678, only lawyers shall be appointed as regional director. So the same legal requirement should apply to a much higher position like deputy director. .
IGNORED all these and administered the oath of office to Ragos on Sept. 19, without the presence of Gatdula. She even told reporters "I am not bound by the recommendation of the PSB because I am the recommending authority." Lima
Meaning, SHE DOESN’T GIVE A DAMN about policies and the law.
She’ll DO ANYTHING SHE WANTS, whenever she feels like it because she’s the boss. It’s either HER WAY OR NOTHING!
She’s the recommending authority, yes. But the bureau’s policies were already being practiced LONG BEFORE she became Justice secretary.
With Ragos’ appointment, De Lima DISRESPECTED the NBI while DEHUMANIZING the PSB and Gatdula. As if they DID NOT EXIST.
She pushed through with Ragos’ appointment even WITHOUT PSB endorsement. She didn’t have even an ATOM OF COURTESY to summon Gatdula, who was Ragos’ immediate boss, to the oath taking.
If the law and time-honored policies MEAN NOTHING to De Lima in doing what she wants, we had better find out her MENTAL HEALTH, FAST!
Whatever way anyone puts it, this kind of attitude IS NOT

God allows Satan para tuksuhin ang kanyang mga nilikha. Pero iba ang kay Pnoy. Lilipulin niya ang mga nagkakasala kahit sa anong paraan, matupad lamang ang kaniyang kagustuhan gamit ang kanyang limitadong kaalaman bilang isang tao. So Pnoy is bullshit, wishing to be in the righteous path ngunit kabaliktaran ang kanyang mga iniisip at ang kanyang pinaggagawa. .

So, Pnoy’s ‘daang matuwid (righteous path) is really NOTHING BUT A HYPOCRITICAL BULLSHIT of a slogan.
With Pnoy himself proving it, again!
INQUIRER Bandera associate editor Dona Policar has reported that she witnessed Presidential Political Adviser Ronald Llamas buying P2,000 worth of PIRATED, or ILLEGALLY-MANUFACTURED, DVDs in one of the stalls at the Circle C Mall along Congressional Ave. in Quezon City Monday night.
Policar reported that Llamas was accompanied by his two barong-clad bodyguards.
Pnoy said he will ask Llamas to explain. But he quickly added that the issue was
TOP, or even “kind of low on our priorities.” This despite a photo of Llamas browsing over the DVDs. NOT ON
And Policar’s PERSONAL, and not ANONYMOUS, report of the incident.
Before Pnoy FOOLS anyone that the Llamas issue deserves low priority, consider these ladies and gentlemen:
Llamas is one of the MOST TRUSTED AIDES of Pnoy, and NOT just an ordinary government employee. Therefore, he should be a shining example of the ‘tuwid na daan.’
But in patronizing ILLEGALLY-MADE DVDs, he is MOCKING THE LAW while indirectly saying ‘what tuwid na daan are you talking about?’
Even if Llamas will deny Policar’s report and say that he just took a look at the pirated DVDs, it won’t clear him or make him less guilty.
Simply because HE DID NOT REPORT the illegal trade to the Optical Media Board, which has jurisdiction over pirated DVDs. He will have to explain why not.
If Pnoy will not FIRE Llamas, HE NO LONGER HAS ANY MORAL RIGHT to even utter ‘tuwid na daan.’
If it’s his people in something irregular, implied or with UNDENIABLE EVIDENCE like the photo of Llamas with the pirated DVDs, it’s not Pnoy’s priority.
Remember DILG Undersecrertary Rico Puno and categorical accusations of retired Archbishop Oscar Cruz that he is receiving jueteng bribes?
Pnoy did not even call for a probe and PERSONALLY, and IMMEDIATELY, CLEARED Puno.
But if it’s the people he hates like Chief Justice Corona, Pnoy PERSONALLY accuses the subject of anything and everything ad immediately calls for an investigation or legal action.
NOTHING could be more HYPOCRITICAL, AND DECEIVING! This is Pnoy’s ‘daang matuwid,’
WAKE UP, PEOPLE! 30
Before anyone prejudges the amounts of properties supposedly under the name of Chief Justice Renato Corona as against his registered income, let’s not forget one thing:
Corona has NOT BEEN HEARD! And the revelations have NOT PROVEN ANYTHING ILLEGAL yet!
He is yet to give his defense on ongoing revelations by the prosecution. Fairness dictates that both sides MUST BE HEARD FIRST before judgment is rendered by anyone.
Not simply because one side is getting more and longer media exposure, it’s the truth.
Especially if attempts at brainwashing through media is very obvious, like discussing each and every evidence in public through press conferences despite a caution t th contrary by the impeachment court.
Or releasing Corona’s statement of assets, liabilities and net worth (SALN) in the Internet without the side of the defense.
As presiding Senator-Judge Juan Ponce Enrile pointed out when he was questioning BIR Commissioner Kim Henares, nobody knows if the money of the Coronas had come from, for example, an inheritance, gift or lottery winnings.
And I repeat, THERE ARE RULES which govern the conduct of the trial. Rules which both the PROSECUTION and the DEFENSE must follow.
Whether the prosecution likes it or not, the trial will be conducted according to the rules, and not how they want it even if it’s IMPROPER.
If the prosecution can’t present their case competently enough to minimize objections, it’s their fault and not of the defense.

This is what they get in railroading an impeachment against CJ Corona! So pathetic incompetency!
THE TRIAL ITSELF
Sana, the prosecutors did their research well. Mrs. Corona comes from the landed and wealthy Roco-Basa-Guidote-de Leon families. The CJ is a Coronado from Tanauan, Batangas and they own properties here. Their children are professionals, two of whom are working abroad. Another is working here and has a doctor at the Medical City for a husband. So it's not surprising that on their own as working professionals and on their inheritances alone, they can surely buy properties they want.
LACIERDA PROVES MALACANANG HYPOCRISY ON IMPEACH
JOE BOY VERA
There is no hypocrisy here, except the double talk Malacanang is making. From the onset of his term, Pnoy made no bones of his intense dislike for Corona and his wish to kick him out of his post, followed by his admission that he initiated the impeachment with the aid of his 188 congressmen. The fortune of his family is at stake here and he will stop at nothing to ultimately oust Corona at all costs. But I am sure, this will be his Waterloo.

Lingayin-Dagupan Archbishop Oscar Cruz said the Filipino people needs an explanation from Aquino regarding Pnoy’s assets and wealth which reportedly almost tripled from 2009 to 2010. Based on a PCIJ report, the President’s wealth has grown from 15,440,268 to 54,999,370 in 2010.
