Father and Son Martial Law Conflict in the Senate Indicates El Cid Scenario


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Koko Pimentel and his father, Nene Pimentel are not on the same page when it comes to Senate decisions over the dealings of martial law. They both have different times as Senators. Most lawmakers agreed that a joint-session is not anymore necessary. This is contradicted by ex-senators who suffered during Marcos’ military rule.

[VIDEO]: Nagpahayag ng pagkabahala sina dating senador Nene Pimentel at Rene Saguisag sa pagtanggi ng Kongreso sa pagkakaroon ng joint session para talakayin ang Martial Law. Maraming mambabatas din daw ang sunud-sunuran lang sa Pangulo.

El Cid

Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, better known as El Cid, or simply Rodrigo, was a Castilian nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain. He became the national hero of his country when he fought the enemies in Valencia after uniting Christians and Muslims. They emerged victorious when they set aside religion to tackle the real enemy of the land.

Signs of Times

Politicians have no clue who the real enemies of the Marcos government were just before he was toppled. President Du30 is very careful in choosing his people after learning from that experience being in alliance with the Marcoses. Families do know that even parents cannot control the minds of their children. This seems like a manifestation of the prophecy called the Signs of Times where fathers can be in conflict with sons – just to cite an example.

The Conflict

Ex- Senate President Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. is convinced that the President has the basis for declaring martial law but insisted that Congress should convene a joint session to argue on the matter. His position contradicts that of his son and namesake, Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III. HE who did not find it necessary to call for a joint Congress session. Rene Saguisag, also a former senator indicated that many senators nowadays are just followers of the President.

ISIS is One Common Enemy

ISIS extremists know no religion, nationality, or territory. They just propagate evil ways through terror attacks to intimidate people. It is the time now for a new El Cid to emerge. President Rodrigo has the right first name and attitude by believing that the Muslims in the Philippines are just the easy victims of the terrorists. To set them apart, he implemented martial law in Mindanao and perhaps the whole country if illegal violence continues. Now, it’s time for Muslims and Christians or all religions, in general, to come to terms with each other and fight one common enemy, ISIS terrorists regardless of nationality.
