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

Deuterium

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

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.

Sept 21 Marks the Civility of the Marcoses Particularly Bongbong and Imee

civility





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

As the “yellows” get ready to oust the President of Sept. 21, Du30 calls the Commission on Human Rights Chair Chito Gascon names. This coincides with the 45th anniversary of Martial Law declaration under the Marcos regime. Since the time of the late Ferdinand Marcos, politics has been passionate and personal. Word wars are common sometimes fist fights can happen. However, the Marcos patriarch, his wife, and children maintain their civility despite the odds. They never use “below the belt” expressions to describe their enemies.

Demonized by Society

The Marcos family has been severely demonized in social media memes, rally placards, and history textbooks. This includes those written by journos who pretend to be historians. It spread through classroom lectures, speeches, training workshops for history teachers, creative works, and artistic performances. Even homilies of priests during masses also contain unfair judgments. Nevertheless, the Marcoses provide society a powerful lesson on civility in political discourse.



Example of Civility

The Marcos political dynasty, from former President Ferdinand Marcos to his wife Rep. Imelda Marcos shows civility. This continued to their more politically engaged children, former Senator Bongbong Marcos and Gov. Imee Marcos. Thus, a shining example of civility in political discourse. The third child, Irene-Marcos Araneta, is a model of dignity in silence.



Restrained Talks

Imee Marcos is always restrained when she talks about their political enemies. She did not launch a vitriolic counter-offensive even against Rep. Rudy Fariñas. She never said any demeaning word against their political enemies and critics. On the other hand, in the election controversy that surrounds the 2016 vice-presidential elections, there is no single instance that Bongbong Marcos directly accused Vice President Leni Robredo of being a cheat and a fraud – contrary to her being vocal on calling his family “thieves” with regards to the wealth for humanity.








Bad-Mouthing Saga

Meanwhile, the legislators, who strongly criticized President Du30, are part of the coalition who wants to unseat him. That would favor their LP bet, Robredo. Senators Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Risa Hontiveros and Antonio Trillanes IV and Representatives Teddy Baguilat, Tom Villarin and Gary Alejano attended its launch. They are all bad-mouthing the President and the Marcoses. Du30 retaliates but the Marcoses remain as they are.

Marcos’ Unli Military Rule Law or Hontiveros’ Fake Martial Law?

Hontiveros





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

There’s no such thing as “indefinite” martial law in the Constitution, said Sen. Risa Hontiveros on Monday. President Du30 threatens to implement Marcos-like military rule if the Supreme Court decides to rule against his martial law declaration. Social media tags her comment as “unli” and her actions “fake” as per the current trend on the “rice” issues.

[VIDEO]: Senator Risa Hontiveros justifies her opposition to Mindanao martial law and her call for a joint session to deliberate on President Du30’s declaration.



Indefinite Military Rule

The Commander-in-Chief obeys the Supreme Court whatever the verdict may be. However, if he has to order a second martial law to resolve conflict Marawi City, he is ready to do a “Marcos copycat.” It, of course, alarms Hontiveros, a noted anti-Marcos politician. “There’s no ‘unli’ (unlimited) martial law,” the senator said.




Supreme Court Compliance

The President said that he is willing to let the military withdraw from Marawi City if the Supreme Court rules that “there is no factual basis” for him to place Mindanao under the martial rule. But there is surely a consequence of that action of his. It’s his job to save the country like Marcos did.




LP Trauma

Malacañang assures the public that the President does not mean human rights abuses on his “Marcos copycat” statement. Palace spokesman Ernesto Abella said this in a press Conference to clarify the Du30’s choice of words that brings back the LP’s trauma.









Unli or Fake?

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana attests that he and National Security Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. recommended martial law in Mindanao Cabinet meetings. This is a similar scenario with then Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile’s suggestion to the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. Therefore, Hontiveros’ authoritarianism accusation to Marcos is fake.
