Seniority-wise, Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III is set to succeed Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III. This can happen within this year, Senator Panfilo Lacson said. He cites that both seem to have an “agreement” that the Senate would respect. However, the senators deny this at this time but assure the public that they would soon talk. Previously, Senator Sotto reveals that he has reliable sources that can shed light on the anomalies of the 2016 election that is now the subject of the ongoing VP recount. The change of leadership can definitely give Bongbong Marcos an upper hand against Vice President Leni Robredo.

Senator Lacson’s View

Senator Lacson estimates that the change in Senate leadership may happen in June or July, or in October at the latest. He speaks logically based on the legal process. Pimentel needs to give up his post for his re-election bid. Sotto is next in line in terms of experience.




No Agreement Yet

In previous reports, Lacson said the Senate will respect the agreement between the two if there’s any. However, Pimentel is yet to talk to Sotto on this matter. Sotto also confirms that there is no direct indication yet on that issue. There must be a caucus because two parties cannot decide only by themselves.




Will Talk Soon

Pimentel said there is “no agreement” yet. However, he added: “But will talk to Senator Sotto immediately upon arrival from Europe. Then hold majority caucus.” He is ready to vacate the post once the required 13 votes are reached. This pronouncement jives with Sotto’s thoughts. Therefore, it is likely to happen really soon.




Much Favored Senate President to Be

Like Pimentel, Sotto is a staunch ally of President Rodrigo Du30. The only difference is, there’s no doubt of his loyalty whereas Pimentel can be “friendly” to the Liberal Party members. Sotto also is the most senior among all senators and has more core allies in the chamber than Pimentel, whose only party mate is neophyte Senator Manny Pacquiao. Sotto definitely gets the nod of the majority with his expose and exchanges against the unpopular VP.

The DOE Cites the Proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law as the Reason for the Deuterium Exploration Delay

Deuterium





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, the chairman of the sub-committee on the BBL, reiterates the Senate’s commitment to passing the Proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law bill. Zubiri earlier said that President Rodrigo Du30 expresses the commitment to certify the bill as urgent. This shows clearly that the President is not a dictator as supported by former Senator Bongbong Marcos. However, the power struggle in both the Senate and the Congress causes the delay of the country’s progress. Currently, the Department of Energy cites the pending Bangsamoro issue as the cause for the issuance delay of the oil and gas exploration permit that allows EMGVCI to develop deuterium deposits as hydrogen fuel for the country’s consumption.

A Priority for the Senate

The Senate will prioritize the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) and not the impeachment trial against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno when the Senate resumes its sessions in May, Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said recently.  However, prior to the April 2  recount of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest, Sotto exposes evidence of digital election fraud during the 2016 election.




The Delaying Game of the Anti-Marcos


[VIDEO]: FORMER SENATOR Ferdinand _Bongbong_ R. Marcos Jr., chair of the Senate Committee on Local Government,

Former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel Jr. despite the son’s alleged commitment to the Du30 administration questions the possible violations of the proposed parliamentary system of the Bangsamoro government and the implementation of Shariah laws. Pimentel said the system of government should be presidential, consistent with the 1987 Constitution. It is noted that former Senator Pimentel is an anti-Marcos. Koko Pimentel is also an indirect rival of Bongbong Marcos in the Vice Presidency because, in the constitution, the Senate President is next in line to the VP Post.




Different Faces of the Resistance at the Hearing

[VIDEO]: Senate hearing on the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law

The co-sponsor of the said law, Senator Risa Hontiveros said this previously in her speech; Bangsamoro is our commitment to peace. A peace that is built on and strengthened by democratic ideals, empowerment, progress, and justice. A peace that has long been awaited by a nation that is trying to heal from its fractured history. She also stresses this; With the Bangsamoro Basic Law, a bill I proudly co-sponsor, we renew our commitment to democracy. The persistent strife and poverty in the region took its damaging toll on our democratization project. So, this lady senator from the opposition is into the passing the law in line with the Presidents wishes. Isn’t she the one who accuses Du30 with term extensions through federalism, and entering into a compromise agreement with the Marcoses?




EMGVCI’s Stand

Banking on the Bangsamoro Basic Law does not make sense because of the A. O. R. is not within the area of ARMM. The property in question for the oil and gas exploration has a T. C. T. privately owned by Maulana. It also has M. O. A from the previous owner, Petronas Oil, OFyzia.  He bought the rights for 10 million USD and has a PNOC-approved permit from all the Barangays, Mayors, and provincial officers. It’s a  Maguindanao A. O. R. NOT a Tausog. However, we don’t want to deal with the oligarch’s big companies and consortium. Our group is a 100 percent Filipino including the engineers from Aramco Petronas Texas oil. We have all-Filipino technicians who are best in the world. They work for Maulanan Oil,  Mindanao, Philippines; said the chairman of the Filipino Consortium.

Cayetano Can’t be a Threat to Bongbong Marcos’ Possible Vice Presidency

Presidency





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Cayetano versus Marcos social media battles emerged right after President Du30’s VP speech. He said that if one of them is his successor, then he can already resign. Nonetheless, DFA Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano is actually not in the position to compete with Bongbong Marcos when it comes to the Vice Presidency. According to the 1987 Constitution, the order of the line of succession is the Senate first. Then the Speaker of the House of Representatives is second. That is once Vice President Leni Robredo is impeached which is not the case at all. Only the Marcos-Robredo electoral protest holds much weight right now. So, the VP race is just between the two.

Presidential Admiration

The President openly admires the leadership style of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. He considers the Marcos clan as important political allies who are helping him in rebuilding the nation. He is counting on the younger Marcos to take over the Presidency at the soonest possible time which adheres to the Philippine constitution. This is if Bongbong Marcos is successful in his protest to assume the Vice Presidency come 2018.




No Cayetano in the VP Line-Up

In an impeachment rap for the Vice President, the Senate President takes over which is Senator Koko Pimentel. In case of his inability, the Speaker of the House is next in line which is Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez. He will act as Vice-President until the elected or the chosen one qualifies. If Bongbong Marcos wins in the electoral protest against Leni Robredo, he can immediately be installed in the VP post. Therefore, Pimentel or Alvarez’ take-over can be temporary. Although, it is not necessary for the time being since no case such case survived to remove Robredo.

.



Speculations have No Legal Basis

The speculations that Cayetano as the president’s running mate aspires to replace Robredo has no legal basis. He is not in the line of VP succession. He seems happy as DFA Secretary. His previous debates with Marcos were for political survival. The yellow traces in him are normal. Considering that many Senators and Congressmen shifted to the president’s PDP Laban from the Liberal Party.









Marcos as VP in 2018 is Still on Track

Marcos reiterates that once the recount is already on schedule by the Supreme Court, it takes only 2 to 3 months to know if he has merits to the case.  He is always for unity and to deal with misunderstandings among the supporters of the DFA Secretary is the last thing on his list. Loyalists must be prepared also to support the favored Du30-Marcos tandem by understanding the feelings of the followers of the rest of the unsuccessful 2016 Vice Presidentiables. That way, we can all stand united for nation-building.

Not the Senator: Rep. Johnny Pimentel Dreams of Seeing Two Marcoses Behind Bars

senator





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Vice Presidential line of succession does not include Rep. Johnny Pimentel. Although he has the same last name with Senator Aquilino or Koko Pimentel who is the Senate President. He was once involved in the Pork barrel scam that implicates the Senator who denied it. So far, he’s just a menace to that surname. Under the constitution, the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives are next in line to the VP post should it be vacated.

Senator-Governor Pork Clash

Senator Koko Pimentel claimed that his signature was forged in a 2012 memorandum of agreement. It was signed between Antonio Fleta, the undersecretary for finance before and Surigao Del Sur Governor Johnny Pimentel. According to the MOA, Pimentel was allocated the funds for marginal farmers in Surigao Del Sur but the Senator insists that his signature was forged.




The Ultimate Dream

Johnny Pimentel, who chairs the House Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability said that the country may soon see two Marcoses behind bars. It is likely the scenario if Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos won’t show up in the House inquiry on July 25, he confirmed.




Difficult Arrest

He said arresting a Marcos would be very difficult. If they will issue a warrant for the arrest, to do that to a popular incumbent governor who is a Marcos is a big challenge. This is a possibility given that the people of Ilocos Norte are behind Marcos.









Yellow Motivation

Pimentel also said the governor’s brother, Bongbong Marcos should refrain from advising his sister – to disregard the House inquiry. To disobey a court summons is against the law. The question is, where is the democracy? Liberal Party politicians are noted to claim that they are Democrats but their actions are very undemocratic.

If Impeachment against Robredo can divide the Nation, How about Recount for Bongbong Marcos?

Robredo





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez threatens to file an impeachment complaint against Robredo for alleged betrayal of public trust. Her video message for a side event of the United Nations drugs body destroyed the country’s image before the international community. On the other hand, Senator Koko Pimentel stresses that if and when Robredo is impeached and convicted, her removal does not mean that her rival, Bongbong Marcos can automatically take her place.






Youtube video by; News5Everywhere
[VIDEO]: Mahihirapan daw na maisulong ang planong impeachment laban kay VP Robredo ngayong nagsalita na si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte. Yan ay ayon kay Senate Pres. Koko Pimentel



Not Duly-Elected VP

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez cannot consider Robredo as VP because he doubts her election victory. He has no one in mind to replace her in case she gets ousted through impeachment. Robredo narrowly won the vice presidential election last over former senator Bongbong Marcos. He has a pending electoral protest against Robredo with the Supreme Court sitting as a presidential electoral tribunal. The constitution dictates that next in line for Robredo is Pimentel then Alvarez. If the post is declared vacant, the president can appoint a replacement from both Houses which is subject to confirmation by the Senate and CA.



Betrayal of Public Trust

Alvarez reiterates his contention that the Robredo betrayed public trust when she sent a video message to the United Nations side event criticizing extrajudicial killings and human rights violations in the President’s war on drugs. He said that the video has put the Philippine leader and the nation in a bad light before the international community.



Impeachment Not for Marcos

It is true that the Marcoses are the president’s allies. He once introduced Marcos to Chinese officials as the incoming vice president if he wins the electoral protest against Robredo. On insinuations that he wants Robredo impeached so that his choice for vice president could take over, Alvarez said that the issue at hand was her having possibly betrayed the public’s trust. It is not PDu30’s goal to impeach her to let Marcos replace her.

Theory on Robredo’s Legitimacy

A trivia from Pastor Boy Saycon’s Binay Camp says that there is an intentional and pre-planned human creation that evident in Robredo’s administration attacks. Ex-Pnoy once said that he shall do everything in his power to stop Du30 and Marcos from winning. The president’s then secret alliance with Binay made him safe fro the Liberal Party’s black propaganda that destroyed Binay. But Robredo emerged victorious fraudulently.  A clandestine operation was implemented by Comelec and Smartmatic. An alleged former executive secretary led the sinister operation. Comelec Head was hands-on. By-pass operations were done at Lucena, Cabuyao, and Tarlac to reconfigure. President Du30 was robbed of around 5 million votes, so are then VP Binay by 6 million votes and Bongbong Marcos by around 3.5 million votes.
