welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Sandiganbayan Third Division after investigating for a long time has found probable cause to continue the case of dismissed-Makati mayor Junjun Binay for graft and falsification of public documents over the allegedly overpriced construction of the P2.2 billion Makati car park building.

Probable Cause

In a resolution released on April 18, the anti-graft court said that there was probable cause to try Binay for falsification and graft raps because he was then the head of procuring entity called HOPE who was responsible for evaluating the documents by the Bids and Awards Committee.

Falsified in Newspaper?

The court said there was a basis to proceed with the trial of Binay’s six counts of falsification of public documents. It noted that the invitation to apply for eligibility and to bid (IAETB) was allegedly falsified in the Balita newspaper by superimposing on a Sudoku game printed in a similar newspaper issue.

Superimposed Copy

“Instead (of the IAETB), a Sudoku Loco game is printed in the same location where the IAETB appears in the accused’s copy. After the said examination, the Court agrees with the finding of the Ombudsman that the purported IAETB seems to have been merely superimposed in the copy of the said newspaper,” the court said in the statement.

Private Document?

Binay’s defense was rejected saying that a newspaper is a private document and he should not be liable for falsification. The court sums up that the documents only showed that Binay and his co-accused have probably committed the falsification and graft charges. This can probably lead to the prima facie records of the case that can prove that the bidding for the Makati car park building was rigged. Most of the accused including Binay have posted bail. There’s no need for the court to issue warrants for arrest.

Taguig’s CA Favor is Not for Ownership: Binay-Cayetano Fight Continues Over BGC


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Makati Mayor Abby Binay clarifies that The CA does not rule that Taguig is the rightful owner of the BGC or Bonifacio Global City. The Court ruling that Makati, not Taguig, is the rightful owner of the BGC is not changed with the latest CA decision that finds Makati’s forum shopping offense.

[VIDEO]: Hindi Taguig, kundi Makati ang dapat na magmay-ari ng Fort Bonifacio, batay sa desisyon ng Court of Appeals. Binaligtad ng korte ang dating desisyon ng Pasig Regional Trial Court na nagsasabing sakop ng Taguig ang walong pinagtatalunang barangay kabilang na ang lumalagong Bonifacio Global City.

Ruling about Makati’s Forum Shopping

The Court of Appeals or CA grants the motion of the Taguig City government to dismiss Makati City’s earlier appeal because of forum shopping. It revives the legal battle of who owns Fort Bonifacio. The March 8, 2017 decision says that the CA through the special sixth division rules that Makati commits forum shopping when it filed the same appeal before two courts. These are the Pasig City Regional Trial Court or RTC and the CA

CA Ruling is not about BGC Ownership

Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano hails the CA decision as a victory for Taguigeños. She said that the latest CA ruling “essentially put Taguig as the rightful owner of the contested estate.” Makati Mayor Abigail or Abby Binay said that Cayetano’s statement is wrong because the SC never said Taguig owns Fort Bonifacio. It only rules that Makati is guilty of forum shopping with two similar cases filed in two courts.

Ownership Case is Not Dismissed

The order of the case dismissal by the CA confuses the decision of the SC. The Supreme Court only orders the previous lawyers of Makati to pay a fine and not to dismiss the case. Makati swears to use all legal remedies to protect its territorial claim,” Binay added.

Recent Developments of the Case

On July 30, 2013, the CA rules in favor of Makati and reverses the Pasig court ruling. The CA lifts the injunction earlier imposed on Makati and orders Taguig to cease and desist from exercising jurisdiction over the area. Taguig fights this decision in a motion and argues that Makati commits forum shopping. Taguig filed a motion both in the CA and the SC. On June 15, 3016, the SC favors Taguig and found Makati guilty of forum shopping. Recently, the CA issues the same ruling as the SC but specifies the forum shopping issue only that has nothing to do with ownership. Therefore, BGC remains under its original owner which is Makati that is being contested by Taguig.

Binay, Honasan, Marcos, and Du30 Alliance: Bongbong Marcos is for the Executive Office

Bongbong Marcos

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Bihomadu or the Binay, Honasan, Marcos, and Du30 alliance supports Bongbong Marcos for Vice President 2016 or President 2022. Even if Marcos is already ripe to run for president in 2016 as what the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago discloses, he opted for the Vice Presidency because he believes that when the right time comes, it’s the people who would dictate his win in the highest executive office.

Youtube video by; UNTV News and Rescue
[VIDEO]: DILG Sec. Mike Sueno assures that although some big government personalities recommended the reinstatement of rogue policemen, this will not happen under the Du30 administration.

Bongbong Marcos Turns Down DILG Appointment

The president himself confirms Marcos’ disinterest for the DILG post during his appearance before Malacanang reporters. The President speaks with Bongbong Marcos wherein the former Senator confirms that he is not for the position. Prior to this, rumors escalate that Marcos replaces Mike Sueno as Secretary of the DILG. This can allegedly take place after the one-year ban for unsuccessful candidates during the May 2016 polls. Sueno also expresses his willingness to step down from his position as per the president’s call.

The Servant in Sueno

DILG Mike Sueno displays his clear intention for public service only. His obedience to the president proves that he is not hungry for power but for the welfare of Filipinos. This is one trait that is missing in most Liberal Party members. The genuine act of service to the public is not through speeches like what Vice President Leni Robredo is doing – but through actions. They must be pro-administration and not pro or anti Du30.

Bihomadu’s Foundation

Bihomadu already exists even before the 2016 elections. Binay, Honasan, Marcos, and Du30 have an understanding that their different parties must work together to clear the executive positions of the Liberal Party bets. They are successful with the Du30’s presidency – but the alleged massive cheatings fail them for the Vice Presidency.

Bihomadu’s Work

Bihomadu is the one behind the enormous collection of electoral protest evidence to prove that the Liberal Party is really responsible for digital, manual, and physical frauds. Bongbong Marcos acknowledges this by saying that he is thankful to the different groups that provided such evidence. One that is very obvious is Pastor Boy Saycon of the Binay camp’s assistance to the whistleblowers in the senate – and his reporting to the president describing the previous election as the dirtiest ever. All of them are together or represented during the official EDSA celebration on February 24, 2017 at Camp Aguinaldo.

Leni Robredo’s Real Fears on Federalism are the VP Post Abolition and Bongbong Marcos as PM


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

VP Leni Robredo insinuates that the Duterte administration just comes up with Federalism without carefully studying it. She wans that the shift to a federal form of government can result to areas that might be left out of the development process. However, in a gathered insights from Sandra Cam and the Binay Camp, poverty is not a real concern for the VP or else she could have used her office already to help alleviate the problem instead of just going against the president. She is afraid to lose her power and scared of Bongbong Marcos as Prime Minister.

[VIDEO]: REPUBLIKA EPISODE 1/3 talks about the plans, goals, and mandates of her Vice Presidential office with Sandra Cam’s insights on VP Leni Robredo.

Sandra Cam On VP Leni Robredo

Sandra Cam describes VP Leni Robredo as a public official who is not working for the people but for her political Party. While the pro-poor president is working hard on making Filipino lives better, she constantly goes against it. She previously attends cabinet meetings then leak out vital information to her opposing team. Just like a paddle who goes against the tide.

LP’s Term is Over, It’s Time for PDu30

The Liberal Party with Pnoy or President Noynoy Aquino already had their six years in the executve office. Now is the time for them to give way to the president. Sandra Cam blatantly said that they already cheated Bongbong Marcos for the Vice Presidency but since their efforts are not enought to block PDu30, they must bow down to the will of the people.

Federal Inequality?

Robredo explains that federalism might be too drastic to remedy a problem. It is not the only solution to the conflict in Mindanao, she added. Is it the cure for persistent oligarchies? Is it the only way to assure equal wealth-distribution among provinces? Robredo still have no answers to these questions. She said that millions of Filipinos continue to languish in poverty. Federalism might result to unequal provincial development, she firmly contradicts but also not sure.

Correction on Federalism from the Binay Camp

Hilario Andes from the Binay Camp has this to say to the Vice President: Very wrong Mrs. Robredo. Federalism will afford each federal region to develop their respective towns and cities with their federal income through the taxes directly paid by the Federal economic and corporate and business entities without depending on the existing national budgetary allocations being controlled by the so-called “Imperial Manila ” Please revisit Economics 1 Mrs. Robredo. Its Economics 1.

Nancy Binay Agrees with Palace that Trillanes Has No Credibility


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV already lost his credibility. He must be ignored. Malacañang does not give in to his cravings. Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said that the Palace would rather focus on “nation building” than entertain the accusation of Trillanes that President has P2.4 billion in his bank accounts. Senator Nancy Binay agrees with this when she said that Trillanes does not have an inch of credibility and yet he talks like a saint.

Youtube video by; GMA News
[VIDEO]: Palace Spokesman Ernesto Abella. Rehash has been dealt with 3 days before the elections. Trillanes has to go to higher authorities if he has basis on the alleged bank accounts of the president. Trillanes must be the one to prove that they exist.

Corrupt because of Arroyo?

Trillanes also accuses the president of being corrupt because he allows former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to be free from prison. She is released from detention over the court’s decision for lack of evidence on the plunder cases filed against her. Why blame PDu30? She is clearly a political prisoner of rival, former President Noynoy Aquino, Trillanes’ boss who pardons him for rebellion.

Bank Account Records Falsified by Trillanes

Abella sais that the document that shows the undeclared wealth of the President and his family is “falsified” when Trillanes brought up the issue during the 2016 elections. So, he’s a liar in the sense that he is capable of faking legal documents. He is no longer credible. He should not be given that kind of attention that he wants, that he craves for, Abella said. The presidential spokesperson added that the senator does not merit attention since he is making a claim sans integrity.

Nancy Binay: Trillanes does not an Inch of Credibility

Senator Nancy Binay’s statement saying that Trillanes does not have credibility and yet he talks like a saint to discredit her father’s presidential bid in 2016 applies to the current situation. Trillanes is noted to stage senate plays and media shows to destroy the reputation of his party’s political opponents. Since PDu30 is seen as the bridge of Bongbong Marcos to the executive office, the Liberal Party is expected to do everything to block that. This is from cheating as per the electoral protest against VP Robredo to media propaganda by Trillanes and the likes.

Snubbed by the President

The President honors cases with integrity. He said that if Trillanes has evidence, he will resign. PDu30 merely shrugs off the senator’s “old and rehashed” claim on his alleged hidden wealth. Since he already won as president, that means no one believes Trillanes anymore.
