Koko Pimentel: Administration’s Ideology is Federalism Not Marcos Authoritarian Rule

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Pimentel reacts to Senator Kiko Pangilinan’s statement that the President’s plan to replace elected barangay officials with appointees is a copy-cat of Marcos authoritarian ideologies. He insists that the administration’s party PDP-Laban is for Federalism and not for an Authoritarian rule. Even Marcos loyalists refuse to accept the Dictator label of Marcos since his policies are always online with the constitution.

[VIDEO]: Pinag-aaralan daw ng Pangulo ang posibilidad na i-appoint na lang ang mga barangay official. Bukod dito, nabanggit din niya ang Martial Law na posibleng solusyon hindi lang sa problema sa droga kundi maging sa terorismo. Ulat ni Zony Esguerra.



An Insult to PDP-Laban

Pimentel takes Pangilinan’s comparison to Marcos as an insult to their party’s ideology. The president is merely explaining the party’s ideology which is federalism. That is at par with the rule of law. The pro-Marcos people are actually also confused if Pimentel is pro or anti-Marcos but obviously more weight on the latter. This is why many do not want Leni Robredo impeached from the VP post because Pimentel is next in line.




Rule of Law

Following the law nowadays has become optional only as per the president. Pimentel agrees with this. There should be a political will in enforcing the law. Part of the law is the Constitution, so due process, respect for human life that must be observed. That’s why police officials are cautioned to go all-out in the war against drugs because there is anti-drug law, he said. They should implement the law with respect because the bill of rights also exists, he added.



Not Marcos Martial Law

So the ideology of the President is the ideology of the party and the party’s ideology is not like martial law during the time of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos. We were born to fight the martial law regime,” Pimentel discloses. This pronouncement even created much disagreement from the pro-Marcos faction.

No Congress Intervention

The Senate leader also corrects Pangilinan’s statement that the ouster of anti-death penalty lawmakers from their key posts in the House of Representatives was a “disturbing indicator of authoritarianism. He stressed that while the President had strong opinions on specific issues, he never attempts to intervene in the affairs of the Congress.

Bongbong Marcos Won’t Benefit from Robredo’s Impeachment but Koko Pimentel Will

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The ex-lawyer of President Ferdinand Marcos, Oliver Lozano filed an impeachment complaint against Leni Robredo for her criticism of the administration’s deadly war on drugs. The complaint for violation of the constitution and betrayal of public trust was submitted by Oliver Lozano to the office of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez for sponsorship. Lozano said that said Bongbong Marcos would not benefit from it.

Immediate Successor is the 3rd Highest Official of the Land

Under the law in the Philippine constitution, it is the third highest official that shall immediately succeed when the vice presidency is left vacant.  In this case, it is the Senate President Koko Pimentel who directly benefit once Robredo is impeached and not Bongbong Marcos. Next in line to Pimentel is House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.




Bongbong Marcos’ Electoral Protest Win is Crucial

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II clarified that Bongbong Marcos can take the VP post once Robredo is removed from her post. But he has to win the electoral protest first. It is noted that the said process takes years to facilitate but since many cannot stand Robredo anymore, it is not so important who would replace her in the VP post for as long as they can get rid of her.



VP Successor can also be Appointed

The president can appoint a VP replacement from members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. The appointee assumes office once the majority vote from both Houses of the Congress approves the appointment. The Commission on Appointments then scrutinizes the VP candidate for confirmation. This is based on Article VII Section 9 of the 1987 Constitution.

Ground for Impeachment

Robredo allegedly betrayed the people by shaming the nation with her dishonest message to the side event in the United Nations forum. “The respondent is duty bound to act within the framework of the Constitution but her acts of dishonesty and moral bankruptcy breached the bounds of the Fundamental Law,” Lozano said. In the video, Robredo exaggerated the killings linked to the drug war and also revealed a so-called “palit-ulo” scheme with the wrong description.

Solgen Ready to File Treason Case against Robredo to Support Alvarez’ Impeachment Move

treason





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
It’s no brainer. If the president is impeached, who would benefit? The law says the President and the Vice-President may be removed from office through impeachment for, and conviction of, culpable violation of the Constitution, treason, bribery, graft and corruption, other high crimes, or betrayal of public trust. Upon watching VP Leni Robredo’s video submitted to the UN where she attacks the administration’s drug war, the Solicitor General concludes that she is guilty of the treason act which is an impeachable case.

[VIDEO]: Alvarez eyes impeachment rap vs Robredo this time



Lady Robredo

Speaker of the House Pantaleon Alvarez refuses to call Robredo Vice President. He addresses her as “lady” because he is not sure if she really wins in the election. Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest is still ongoing. Massive concrete proofs of fraudulent activities are gathered from legible voters themselves. Evidence are from both digital and manual processes.




OVP’s Defense

Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez Even Magdalo Party-list Rep Gary Alejano said that it is only the Magdalo that is behind the president’s impeachment complaint. Robredo denies this herself. She also said that reports are sent to the DILG and PNP on her “exchange heads” revelation but they are ignored. Real people allegedly make this complaint at her office. The video was also submitted to the UN since February so, the coincidence with the impeachment filing date is not within her control, she added.

Act of Treason

Alvarez condemns Robredo’s video and says that she clearly does not have the basis of her allegations. The near recount of votes just scares her. She knows she does not have an edge over Bongbong Marcos. He is certain that Robredo has a “direct hand” in the President’s impeachment complaint filed by Magdalo. Treason is the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to overthrow the government. Senate President Koko Pimental is next in line to Robredo for the VP post and then Alvarez is next to Pimentel as the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Senator Alan Peter Cayetano can only be appointed by the President once he becomes a cabinet member and the first two successors are not qualified.

Koko Pimentel’s NY Resolution: Adapting LP’s Media Trick Against Duterte for Marcos’ Seat?

Koko Pimentel





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III this 2017 vows not to evade the media anymore. He chose to be quiet in te past with regards to his disagreements with President Duterte’s move. Pimentel opposes Duterte on Marcos’ Heroes Burial and keeps silent about the death penalty and extrajudicial killings. However, he also justifies why he wants Senator Leila de Lima, Duterte’s critic to chair the justice committee. De Lima is later ousted from the position by the senate. This does not erase the fact that many Duterte, Marcos, and Binay supporters suspect that he’s a traitor to the Liberal Party opposition alliance.





Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net
[VIDEO]: There were some “disagreements” but not enough to warrant the ouster of Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, Senator Joseph Victor “JV” Ejercito said on Wednesday.



Senator JV Ejercitos’ Petty Issues with Pimentel

Senator JV Ejercito comments that even if there are minor issues with Pimentel’s leadership in the senate, he believes that as of now, he’s senate presidency is stable. There are also not enough threat that could leave in a campaign to oust him. He hopes that the differences are soon be settled.



Oust V.P. Leni Robredo?

Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez denies that the Duterte administration starts to push Vice President Leni Robredo out of her V.P. seat after resigning from her cabinet post. Come to think of it. If. V.P. Robredo is ousted, Bongbong Marcos is not the next in line before the ruling of the electoral protest. If that happens, Koko Pimental takes over the V.P. post. So, if Robredo is ousted, it can’t be the work of the Duterte administration. Can the Liberal Party takes out their own?



Vocal to Media against Duterte?

If the senate president becomes vocal against the actions of the president through the media, that surely results to the division of power in the senate. Duterte won’t dominate anymore in that area. How about the somewhat Liberal views of Pimentel? Does this mean to say that the Liberal Party prefers him to take over the V.P. post than Robredo? Given that her reputation deteriorates at the moment after “Lenileaks,” Pimentel can only be their option – that if he is indeed a traitor to Duterte’s party.


Phone Protection: NQ Mobile Security 2 years or NQ Mobile Security 1 year

Speculated Plot

Given the nature of the Liberal Party when Mar Roxas is dropped for Grace Poe during elections, they can easily do that to Leni Robredo for Koko Pimentel. Once Pimentel is seated in the V.P. seat, he can then apply his New Year’s resolution to be vocal through the media – and that can include his criticisms to Duterte’s policies, actions and behavior in public to destroy him. The purpose? Be President? Wait, is that supposed to be Bongbong Marcos’ seat?

Jojo Binay is not a Fish, Pimentel – He teaches People how to Fish

Jojo Binay





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Now that Senator Koko Pimentel is already the confirmed Senate President, he has to stand by his promise to jail former Vice President Jejomar Binay for the alleged corruption committed when he was still mayor of Makati. In fact, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales echoed that by filing cases against him without probable cause and no concrete evidence – just hearsays. Koko was noted saying that Binay would probably be the first big fish who is going to prison for that matter and headlines flashed around tri-media including social media.

Well, this is what most Makati residents are saying in response to that. “Binay is not a big fish, Koko – he teaches people how to fish and you should learn that also as a public servant. His public services in Makati are second to none. Up to this date, you are considered privileged if you get a Makati resident and medical cards – that existed even before the plan of creating a national ID card for Filipinos. Do you know why? It is easy to print cards but even that most of past governments cannot do. The difficult part is coming up with concrete benefits to offer to Filipino Citizen card holders.

Senator Koko Pimentel, now that you have the power to create legislation that would benefit Filipinos, can you at least try to come up with various privileges that a Filipino can have under the Duterte administration? Will a Filipino ID card holder be prioritized in the country’s top paying jobs? Will they get livelihood loans to start businesses? Can their children go to quality schools for free? Most of all, can they get hospitalized without worrying about the cost? Wait until you can accomplish these before even thinking of jailing Binay who had done all of these for the citizens of Makati. For now, learn from him.
