Pro-administration lawmakers just filed a bill that would put the Solicitor General Calida in charge of the PCGG. It aims to recover the ill-gotten wealth of the Marcos family. If their bill is signed into law, ant-Marcos activists are worried on the Solicitor General’s judgment. It is not enough that they asked to stop the Php 25,000 pesos pension of former First Lady Imelda Marcos as the widow of a war veteran which is Php 5,oo0, and 20,000 as the widow of a medal of valor recipient.

True Blue Marcos Loyalist
Solicitor General Jose Calida is a true blue Marcos loyalist. He was an avid leader of the Alyansang Duterte-Bongbong or RRD-BBM alliance. He campaigned for the tandem and even expressed his utmost support for both candidates during a media interview in Ilocos Norte.
PCGG under SolGen
Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez pushes House Bill Number 5233. Together with Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas, and House justice committee chairperson Reynaldo Umali. It seeks to place the Presidential Commission on Good Government or PCGG under the Office of the Solicitor General. That automatically makes Calida the head of the PCGG that disturbs the anti-Marcos protesters.
The PCGG has so far recovered over P170 billion. The same bill places the Office of the Government Corporate Counsel under Calida’s office and upgrades his rank, benefits, and privileges. So, Calida would be on top of the three departments once the bill is approved. Will he pursue running after the Marcoses or diverts his attention to other politicians who have questionable lifestyles?
These anti-Marcos people are filled with hatred in their heart. They cannot give credit anymore where it’s due. The pension of a deceased military man has nothing to do with any alleged ill-gotten wealth that after more than 30 years, no court could prove it or dismiss the complaints. Since in a democratic country, one is innocent until proven guilty, the heirs of the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos must not be treated unfairly. Are they really afraid that Calida will be biased in the Marcoses’ favor or worried that he examines the wealth of the anti-Marcos government officials instead?

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
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.
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.
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.
