Warring Leaders are Civil in Malacañang Gathering





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The recent NSC Meeting suddenly became the gathering for former Philippine Presidents at Malacañang as convened by President Rodrigo Duterte. This first ever happening was not seen coming as all parties are throwing mud at each other during the campaign period – but most politicians knew that those so-called media wars were only temporary and they need to be civil if not unite for the sake of the country.

It was remembered that Estrada was not so happy with his then Vice President Arroyo who replaced him after being convicted of plunder despite her giving him pardon. Whereas Aquino was in the spotlight because everybody knew that he imprisoned Arroyo just to shut her up during his administration. Despite all those frictions, the meeting went well and may all grudges involving these personalities will be behind us.

Ex-Presidents Benigno S. Aquino III, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who is now Pampanga congresswoman, Joseph Ejercito Estrada who is now mayor of Manila, and Fidel V. Ramos who has been appointed as the country’s special envoy to China, were all present at the Aguinaldo State Dining Room in Malacañang Palace where the NSC meeting was held. Except for Aquino, Arroyo, Estrada and Ramos were also present during the new President’s first State of the Nation Address (SONA) recently at the Batasan Complex in Quezon City.

Ombudsman Morales Grinning to put Arroyo back in Jail contrary to Amal Clooney’s Call





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales cannot accept defeat and cannot hide her grinning over former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s hospital arrest release recently that she vowed to put her back again in jail – showing her evil side. Arroyo’s lawyer Estelito Mendoza described the Ombudsman’s action as “shocking”.

The Supreme Court acquitted Arroyo from a plunder case over the alleged misuse of P366 million in Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) funds covering the years 2008 to 2010 – after four long years if being detained over lack of evidence which is surely the result of slow justice by the past administration. Now the ombudsman is already on its preliminary stage for another pending complaint in connection with PCSO intelligence funds covering the earlier period of 2004 to 2007 that Arroyo’s counsel, Laurence Arroyo confirmed that they already filed their counter-affidavit to the complaint.

Meanwhile when Arroyo did not even think of counter filing to charge the Ombudsman in their initial wrong judgement while she is busy coping up with her family and personal life in the free world, Morales is preoccupied in charging Arroyo with plunder again which is a non-bailable offense. This is despite of International human rights lawyer Amal Clooney’s testmony that the past government has committed human rights violations against political prisoners especially Congresswoman Arroyo.

Former President Gloria Arroyo is Free at Last





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The Supreme Court has now officially dismissed former President President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and ordered her release at the soonest possible time. This is after four years of long and delayed trials that President Rodrigo Duterte called slow justice. If Congresswoman Arroyo was indeed guilty, why can’t the previous administration push the process into giving her verdict? Is there truth that Pnoy just wanted her silenced?

SC Spokesman Theodore Te announced in the recent press conference that the Court dropped the criminal case because the evidences are insufficient that we already know – but only issued the immediate release after the government has changed to the new administration.

It was vote 11-4 in favor of Arroyo’s release after she filed her petition to junk a Sandiganbayan ruling – that instilled her plunder trial despite the lack of evidence in relations to the charges that she misused Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office or PCSO funds owned by the government.

Will Duterte Influence PGMA’s Case Dismissal Motion?


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo filed a motion in the Sandiganbayan to dismiss the cases against her with regards to the $329- million National Broadband Network deal with Zhing Xing Telecommunications Equipment, Inc. or ZTE of China, claiming that the prosecution failed to show evidences of guilt during trial as required by law to be pursued.

The former President according to President-elect Rodrigo Duterte is a victim of slow justice. Despite not seeing any proof of guilt, the case just hang in there without further trial – and no decissions whatsoever is seen coming.

PGMA’s lawyers Laurence Arroyo and Jesi Howard Lanete, filed a motion for leave to file demurrer to evidence on the charge of violating Section 3(g) and 3(i) of Republic Act 3019, the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, and Section 7(d) of RA 6713, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees.

Arroyo-Marcos: Destroyed by Media Propaganda but the Heart Prevails

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Strong women are only strengthen by the tears in their eyes. Filipinos and the world in general have witnessed how former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was sentenced in jail without due process and the ever stylish former first lady Imelda Marcos was dragged into the ill-gotten wealth phenomenon and the martial law era mandated by her late husband, former President Ferdinand Marcos.

Senator Bongbong Marcos’s fight with Leni Robredo in the country’s Vice Presidential race is a clear proof that not all people hated the Marcoses especially those who have the wisdom to weigh what is right or wrong. Win or lose, the country is still divided into pro or anti Marcos.

So, there’s hope in the Philippines that like these two iron women, despite circumstances failing them, Arroyo is Arroyo and Marcos is Marcos. They do not let their heads rule their lives but their hearts – by still serving the people until the end of time and reconcile with foes when you still can. Remember the Macapagal-Marcos presidential race in 1964? It’s water under the bridge now. They allied to get the real democracy back from the Liberal Party. All for their beloved Filipinos!
