Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Jesse
Robredo now says Jordanian TV journalist Baker Atyani and his two Filipino
crewmen are now being held hostage by Abu Sayyaf bandits.
But PNP Directorate for Integrated Police Operations head Chief
Superintendent Manuel Barcena says there’s no proof to what Robredo is
These two officials are on the same team, with one higher in rank
than the other. But what do we get --
two TOTALLY CONTRADICTORY UPDATES on the same crisis situation.
But it seems Robredo and Barcena are not coordinating with each
other, which is VERY BASIC between a boss and his subordinates.
All these just a day after Jordan’s Foreign Ministry declared
that Atyani’s and his companions were abducted in Sulu province while on a
Question: Who’s LYING or who’s INCOMPETENT, or both, Robredo or
As DILG boss, Robredo has supervisory power over the PNP. But take note of the following, boys and
There’s NO CONFIRMED STORY yet on how Atyani and his two
companions went missing. Robredo and other local and police officials
consistently say the three were not taken by force or abducted.
But they have NOT YET PRESENTED ANY WITNESS who can prove that
Atyani’s group indeed arrived on their own and unmolested at the supposed Abu
Sayyaf camp they’re into now.
It has not been even proven beyond doubt by anyone that the
supposed ‘general location’ of Atyani’s group, which military officials claim
they already know, is their original destination in the first place.
All we have been hearing are the words of Robredo and police and
military commanders with him.
Anybody correct me if I’m wrong.
But you know what’s both DESPICABE AND INTRIGUING with Robredo’s
handling of the crisis, people?
His statement that no search-and-rescue operation would be
launched by the police even if he
himself says Atyani’s groiup are now being held hostage by Abu Sayyaf
bandits, and that the government “will wait and see.”
ANONG KLASENG UTAK KAYA MERON SI ROBREDO?
When one is held hostage, that’s ILLEGAL DETENTION, A CRIMINAL
ACT. Any criminal act, as in any, must
be STOPPED AT ONCE, as in immediately, by police or other authorities with
whatever means possible.
But Robredo would WAIT FIRST for WHATEVER it is and just let the
criminal act, which HE HIMSELF REVEALED, to continue.
So if, God forbid, Atyani and or his companions are HARMED OR
KILLED by the people holding them hostage, NOBODY else should be blamed but
OK LANG TUMULONG, KASUMPA-SUMPA ANG MAGYABVANG!
"Ayon daw sa batas natin, ang $77

this is the problem with our elected officials in the Legislative branch. How
come they are not doing anything on it... that is, if the claimi is true and
not just using a law as an excuse. Kudos for another informative

FROM READERS WHO
ASKED NOT TO BE NAMED::
Maraming salamat sa
ulat na ito. Ano ang paraan para malaman ng taongbayan ang pinansyal na
katayuan ng ating gobyerno? Paano kinikita ito? Paano ginagastos? Ano ang batas
na patungkol sa pag-gastos nito? Pag may hindi kanais-nais na pangyayari o
pagdududa, ano ang maaaring gawin ng sambayanan upang maayos ito? Ilan na
bang matataas na pinuno ang nakulong dahil sa corruption? Marami kaming alam na
maliliit na tao na na-oombudsman, pero walang malalaking tao. Bakit?
I think it is just a
wise practical decision. The $1B is part of the $77B monetary reserve managed
by BSP (It's some kind of a requirement and it is the basis of the Peso
valuation and the exchange rate). This fund cannot be used by govt for internal
budget expenditures. Either it is just sleeping/ 'reserved' with the IMF or
since we're already paid up with our loans w/ IMF, we can loan it to other
countries and earn from it. Ito ay separate fund from the budget dahil pag
binawasan mo ang dollar reseves ng bansa, bababa lalo ang value ng piso,
therefore mas mahihirapan tayo magbayad ng utang. Sana lang magresearch muna tayo ng maayos about
intl funds bago magreact. I'm not pro-Noynoy, but cut the guy some slack and
give credit when it is due.
(My reply: I didn’t say that the $77B reserve fund should be
used outright for classrooms and other infra projects. All I said was there’s
no effort on the part of Pnoy, or anyone
for that matter, to try to amend the law so that even part of the $77 billion
could be used for infra and other needs of the people. If people from other
countries can avail of it through the IMF, the more should we be given a chance
for the same. I suggest you read my blog again.)
BETWEEN DOLPHY AND CORONA
Hindi rin ibibigay
kay Dolphy yan, kasi si Villar ang kinampanya niya. Alam ni’yo naman ang Penoy,
No other award,
including what Malacanang is withholding, can compare to the love that the
Filipino people showed to Mang Dolphy.
Ano ba ang aasahan sa ABNOY na presidente? Puro HANGIN ang laman ng
UTAK, HANGIN ang laman ng PUSO kaya pati pagdesisyon sa lahat ng BAGAY AY
HANGIN-KAYABANGAN ang kinahahantungan.
It would have been easier to accept the verdict of CJ Corona
had the impeachment gone through proper procedure. But since the beginning of
the impeachment, rules were never followed. The CJ was denied due process.
Ang bilis ng kilos ng mga pulitiko pag si Dolphy, kasi sipsip sa masa.
Do they truly care? A dying comedian does not deserve this much attention from
the politicians, only in the Philippines.
Dophy pundasyon, Corona
MICHELLE NACION of San Mateo,
Tama. Nung kay Corona, wala pang 3 hours
nakapirma na ang 188 congressmen. Sana,
ganito din gawin kay Pidol.
are we devoting space and time considering Dophly as a national artist? Does
want to be the laughing stock of the world? There is not a country in iits
right mind who has recognized a slap stick comedian as their national artist or
part of their culture. Let us just let him be as the comedian that he is. To
enshrine him as a national artist is a laugh.30
lang natin ng husto: Hindi masama ang tumulong ang gobyerno sa mga
nangangailangang bansa kung makakatulong talaga an gating bayan.
KASUMPA-SUMPA kung ang gagawing pagtulong ay KAYABANGAN at pagpapapogi lamang,
lalo pa’t milyun-milyon sa mga kababayan
natin ang PATULOY NA NAGHIHIRAP at mas dapat bigyan ng mas malaking tulong.
ang Pilipinas sa International Monetary Fund (IMF) ng $1 bilyon o mahigit P42
bilyon para matulungan ang ekonomiya ng ilang bansa sa Europa tulad ng Greece at Ireland.
sa mga katwiran ng Pnoy administration ay may mga kababayan tayong nagtatrabaho sa mga bansa sa Europa na kailamngan ng
tulong. Tutal naman daw, bayad na tayo
isipin ninyo ito, mga kababayan:
mismo ni Pnoy ang nagsabi na ang utang ng Pilipinas, domestic at foreign, ay
umabot na sa P5 TRILYON, o humigit-kumulang sa $120 BILYON.
na wala na tayong utang sa IMF, may utang pa rin tayo sa iba’t-ibang bansa o
mga financial institutions doon tulad ng japan at Amerika. At lahat ng mga utang na ito ay MAY INTERES.
na BUWIS NATIN ang PANGUNAHING IPINAMBABAYAD o pinanggagalingan ng pambayad.
sa halip na doon magbuhos ng malaking halaga si Pnoy para mabawasan ang interes
kahit kaunti, IBANG TAO MUNA ang bibigyan ng mas malaking ayuda ng gobyerno
kesa bansa natin.
mayayamang bansa kesa sa atin ang Malaysia
Pero kahit sila ay $1 bilyon lamang ang ipapahiram sa IMF.
hindi NAGYAYABANG si Pnoy, bakit kailangang MAKIPAGSABAYAN ang Pilipinas sa mas
mayayamang bansa kesa sa atin? Hindi ba
puwedeng bawasan ang %1 bilyon?
namang HINDI lang ang $1 bilyong ipapautang ng Pilipinas ang lubusang
makapagsasalba sa mga nangangailangang bansa sa Europa.
Sentral mismo ang nagpahayag na taong
2006 pa laang ay wala na tayong utang sa IMF, ibig sabihin, panahon ni GMA.
Pero walang naiulat noon na nagpautang ang gobyerno ni GMA ng $1 bilyon sa IMF.
bakit kailangang maging kakaiba ni Pnoy, kung hndi siya nagpapapogi lamang sa mata ng IMF?
naman daw ng Pilipinas na pautanfgin ng $1 bilyon ang IMF dahil mayroong $77
bilyon na reserbang pera ang Pamahalaan. Puwes, bakit kinailangang umabot ng P5 trilyon
ang utang ng bansa?
daw sa batas natin, ang $77 bilyon ay hindi puwedeng ipampagawa ng mga daan,
tulay, eskuwelahan at iba pang
infrastructure projects.Pero isipin ninyo, mga kababayan, puwedeng ipautang sa
ko sa inyo pero ako, ngayon ko lang
nalaman na may reserba palang ganitong kalakiong pera ang Pilipinas.
wala akong narinig kahit minsan kay Pnoy na pagaralan man lang kung paano
maameyndahan ang batas para magamit kahit konti nito sa mga pangangailangan ng
ating mg akababayan.
uulitin ko, puwedeng ipautang sa ibang tao. Kung hindi MALAKING KATARANTADUHAN
ang tawag dito, puwedeng magsuggest ng iba ang kahit sino.
na namang MISERABLENG KATOTOHANAN sa sitwasyon natin ngayon, mga kababayan. 30
There is a big, pathetic difference between
Dolphy and former Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Pnoy’s hands are tied in bestowing upon Dolphy
the title of National Artist because there is a process to follow and a case on
the conferment of the honor to other personalities is pending before the
Supreme Court (SC).
Malacañang can help expedite the process, Lacierda said Pnoy does not want to
As if the
government is that PROFESSIONAL AND IMPARTIAL, despite the ballooning clamor
for Dolphy, who is still fighting for his life, to be named National Artist.
Pag para kay
Dolphy, may proseso. Pero pag para kay Corona, WALANG
PROSE-PROSESO. LAHAT PUWEDE. PERSONAL PA AT HAYAGAN ang suporta ni Pnoy.
Under the law, an
impeachment complaint must have been read and understood by all the signatories
first before they sign it.
A lot of
signatories to the articles of impeachment against Corona eventually admitted that they did not
read the complaint and just affixed their signatures.
DID NOT SAY ANYTHING about this SHAMELESS DISREGARD of the law. Not a single
word to the House of Representatives to follow the rule in approving the
articles of impeachment..
Lacierda says Malacañang
recognizes and respects the process in selecting a national artist and is not
part of it.
Corona’s impeachment trial Pnoy, Lacierda and his deputy Abigail Valte INSULTED
AND DEMONIZED the accused Chief Justice and repeatedly declared him guilty in
every affair, press conference or radio and TV show they can get into.
officially, Malacanang was NOT PART of the House of Representatives which
to the Senate Impeachment Court.
And neither Lacierda
or Valte was a member of the House prosecution team.
Several times during
impeachment, Pnoy and Lacierda described the prosecution’s evidence as solid or
in other synonyms and they can’t see any reason for an acquittal.
But for Dolphy, Lacierda
says the SC is surely aware of the comedy king’s condition and need not be
reminded by Malacanang.
compassion in an ALIEN WORD for Pnoy when it comes to Dolphy. What he obviously
is aware of is the word HYPOCRISY.

DANGER SIGNS IN PLANNED PING APPOINTM,ENT

Bagay na bagayt si Ping Lacson sa DILG.
NERALYN GUMAPAC of Surigao, Surigao
Ping Lacson, kasangga ng mga Kuratong Baleleng.
Nasaan na yang si Atty. Rodel Rodis na nagexpose
before regarding sa hancuffs corruption nitong si Senator Pinky Lacson, the
same man na gumawa ng petition to exclude MDS (Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago) as
Justice of the ICC, (International Criminal Court)?
Nakakatakot isipin ang mangyayari pag si
Lacson na ang DILG secretary.
Baka ang first order of the day na gawin ni acson
ay iligpit si little lady.
Planado lahat. First, they have to clear the
obstacles from DOJ by removing Mancao and Rosebud Ong from the Witness
Protection Program. Then, dismiss all the cases filed against him and allow him
to return to Philippines.
What? A suspected criminal as anti-crime
A suspected murderer appointed?
GOV’T STUPIDITY IN ATYANI CASE
RICO GARCIA of San Rafael, Bulacan
Tulad din yan ng hostage crisis. Arabs ngayon
ang gustong kalabanin. Baka di saging amg ipabalik sa Pilipinas, kundi mga OFW.
Diyan sila magaling! Sa kuro-kuro, hula-hula!
palibhasa mga BUANG talaga! 30
The continued speculations by government
officials on the disappearance of Jordanian journalist Baker Abdulla Atyani and
his two Filipino companions show how STUPID and INCOMPETENT is the Pnoy
administration in handling a major crisis.
First and foremost: There have been repeated
pronouncements that Atyani is being suspected of being a contact or courier of funds
of the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).
But the only grounds for this suspicion are
Atyani had once interviewed the late Al Qaida chief Osama Bin Laden and had
refused security escorts offered by government officials before he and his
companions went to their assignment.
Nainterview lang si Bin Laden, posibleng terorista
na rin. Kung ganito ang katwiran ng Pnoy government, dapat din nilang
imbestigahan ang LAHAT ng mga taga-media na may nainterview nang mga terorista.
If Pnoy’s boys won’t do that, then in
fairness to Atyani they have NO MORAL RIGHT to prejudge the guy.
On Atyani’s reported refusal to have security
escorts, he probably thought he won’t get the information he wants from the
people he wanted to interview id there would be other people around.
It would be FOOLISH to think that any
terrorist or outlaw would openly and casually talk to any media person if there
would be strangers around.
I’m not saying that Atyani is 100 percent
clean. What I’m driving at is the danger (s) that the government’s
IRRESPONSIBLE statements on Atyani might bring.
Not only to him and his companions but to our
countrymen working or living in Jordan.
First: The government says there are no
search operations for Atyani and his companions.
So if, God forbid, Atyani or his companions
get killed or wounded in a shootout between members of the ASG and soldiers,
who will be held responsible? Who should take the blame?
Second: There is no INDISPUTABLE PROOF up to
now that Atyani is indeed a contact of the ASG. But the government has publicly
declared that theory several times.
Atyani’s family, relatives and countrymen
surely despise this baseless pronouncement.
If angry Jordanians retaliate on our
countrymen there with anything they can think of, again who should be held
responsible? Who must take the blame and fix whatever problem may arise?
And most of all, the government says it has
CONFIRMED that Atyani’s group is with the ASG. Meaning, they have an idea where
they are. But NO OPERATION is underway to find them, and CAPTURE the ASG
members with them.
This despite the fact that the ENTIRE ASG is still wanted by the
law. As to why this is so, your guess is
as good as mine, people.
To Pnoy’s boys: Put up or shut up! 30.
dangerous signs are emerging from Pnoy’s plan to appoint Sen. Ping Lacson as
anti-crime czar Department of Interior and Local Governments (DILG) secretary.
Pnoy is showing his VERY LITTLE REGARD for law and justice. In the process, he
is highlighting his HYPOCRISY in his highly-publicized and supposed adherence
all know that Lacson returned to the country using documents authorities had
branded as forged or fake after a year or so in hiding.
use of fake or forged documents is ILLEGAL.
Lacson was NEVER EVEN INVESTIGATED for it. Pnoy DIDN’T ORDER any agency to
probe the issue. He NEVER ATTACKED Lacson despite his government’s endless
proclamation that ‘no one is above the law.’
got away with it as if HE HAD NEVER DONE ANYTHING WRONG in the first place. And
now, this early, Pnoy is seriously considering him to be anti-crime czar or
DILG boss, the TOP IMPLEMENTOR of the law.
‘no one is above the law’ is Pnoy and his boys are talking about?
for Pnoy, it’s what he wants or who he wants that matters. He doesn’t give a
shit with questions on truth, transparency or the reputation of his choice.
wisdom or maturity, guys, Pnoy style.
If Lacson will get away TOTALLY with using questionable travel documents for
his return, WHAT WILL STOP HIM from doing anything he wants, legal or not, once
he’s named anti-crime czar or DILG secretary?
to this the following:
to now, Lacson HAS NOT SHOWN anything outstanding in his performance as a
senator – no landmark bills authored and enacted into law, no admirable record
in the number of bills filed, no infrastructure or pro-poor project.
only thing Lacson is known for as a senator is his exposes of supposed illegal
acts committed by or involving former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her
which he NEVER GOT TO PROVE any beyond reasonable doubt.
what is our guarantee that he will render a better and truly impartial
performance as anti-crime czar of DILG head?
floor is yours, people.
COLD-BLOODEDNESS OR INCOMPETENCE, OR BOTH!

came up with this piece based on a post by our friend Isabel Juico.)
is either COLD-BLOODEDNESS or INCOMPETENCE, or both, of Pnoy then and now, in
and out of Malacanang.
has been 35 years since some 20 or so protesting farmers were massacred on Mendiola Bridge
in Manila. The
president then was Pnoy’s mother, Cory.
Anybody correct me if I’m wrong but NEVER was it known that Pnoy did
something to help capture and punish the killers.
Mendiola killers remain UNIDENTIFIED AND UNPUNISHED up to now.
the early 2000s (2004 or 2007), close to 10 protesting farm workers were gunned
down outside Hacienda Luisita. Pnoy was vice-president for security then of the
was cleared of any liability but just like the Mendiola massacre, NO EFFORT
sustained or otherwise, by Pnoy was reported to help identify and punish the
just can’t recall exactly who said it but there was a story in media then that
the shots which killed the fatalities came from outside.
television news video of the farmers fleeing when gunshots rang out CLEARLY
SHOWED THEM RUNNING AWAY from, and not towards, the hacienda.
one of the farmers’ leaders I talked to summed it up, “Bakit namin sasalubungin
ang bala kung sa labas ng hacienda galling ang mga putok?”
butchers behind the Hacienda Luisita massacre remain free.
the hostage crisis at the Luneta more than a year ago involving tourists from Hong Kong, it was widely reported that Pnoy was NOWHERE
to be found, even by media.
that no less than the leader of Hong Kong
TRIED BUT FAILED to talk to him.
we all know by now, several (was it eight) of the tourists were killed by the
hostage-taker. Pnoy only showed up when it was over. Up to now, NOBODY has been
punished or disciplined for the bloodbath due to the poor handling of the
massacre of 19 soldiers in Basilan is still UNSOLVED, But just days after the
slaughter, Pnoy SECRETLY GAVE P5 MILLION to the Mori Islamic Liberation Front,
to which the killers belonged.
ko pa lang ay KINIKILABUTAN NA AKO kung ano ang gagawin ni Pnoy kapag nagkaroon
ng MAS MALAGIM, na massacre bukod sa mga binanggit ko rito.
yield the floor to you, people.

I am in a daze reading this.
UNTOUCHABLE JUETENG AND ITS REAL DANGER
STL (small town lottery) was being pushed by
Peping (Cojuangco) early on and he keeps on asking Ballsy to convince Abnoy to
legalize it in exchange for the jueteng. But up to now this is still on the
verge of reality!
Jueteng lords nga ba?
Jueteng is BREAD AND BUTTER for corrupt government
officials, for direct deposit to their bank accounts. Why would they stop it eh
pinagkakakitaan? Pag nabuko they have decent fall guys as scapegoats. 30
me give you a glimpse of the situation we’re in, boys and girls.
former Chief Justice Renato Corona was impeached, practically all of the top
branches and agencies of government ganged up on him – Malacanang, House of
Representatives. Office of the Ombudsman, Department of Justice, Anti-Money
Laundering Council, even yellow media.
DISAPPEARANCE of 2,000 container vans of goods form the Bureau of Customs
remains UNSOLVED. And we don’t hear of any continuing probe.
AUTHENTICITY of travel documents used by Sen. Panfilo Lacson in returning from
a year of hiding has NEVER BEEN INVESTIGATED. Instead, Lacson is being eyed
this early for the VERY POWERFUL post of Interior and Local Government
Commissioner Kim Henares being considered for Chief Justice post, despite
FAILURE of her office to meet collection targets for the last three months and
no track record of the required minimum 15 years of law practice.
incidence of hunger has hit an all-time high, but there’s still NO CLEAR
SOLUTION in sight.
no convincing proof that Pnoy’s government is doing something to reduce the
reported 900,000-HECTARE BACKLOG in the agrarian reform program.
Pnoy spent P87 million on a ONE-WEEK TRIP
to the United Kingdom
and the US.
shortage in classrooms and teachers is still in the TENS OF THOUSANDS but
instead of spending for these, the Education department is splurging tens or
hundreds of millions on adding another year to the elementary and higfh school
level or Kplus 12.
of the 19 soldiers MASSACRED in Basilan remain free. But the movement to which
the suspects belong to. the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, got P5 million from Pnoy.
Transportation Sec. Virginia Torresm shooting buddy of Pnoy, REMAINS UNTOUCHED
AND UNPROBED, despite her alleged involvement in the illegal takeover of
officials recommended for prosecution or disciplinary action following the
massacre of tourists from Hong Kong last year are STILL IN THEIR POSTS and

ht assumed office almost two years ago, as if it doesn’t exist.

can go on but let me end this with one simple reminder for all of you:
HYPOCRISIES, IMMORALITIES and SELECTIVE DISPENSATION of justice are happening
because WE ALLOW THEM TO. It’s up to us to end all these. 30
