Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is not only a convicted rebel on parole – but also a convicted liar. He is on bail after a warrant of arrest is issued for his case that former Vice president Jejomar Binay filed against him for his accusing the latter of corruption during the longest ever senate hearings. He has no credibility at all in calling for such probe involving social media trolls bearing false news.

[VIDEO]: MANILA – A Makati Regional Trial Court judge has ordered the arrest of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV after finding probable cause in the libel case filed against him by former Makati Mayor Junjun Binay.
Abuse of Power by Trillanes
Social media “trolls” are the subjects of a Senate investigation initiated by Senator Antonio Trillanes. In his Resolution No. 259, Trillanes wants the Senate committee on public information and mass media to probe the alleged spread of false, erroneous, distorted, fabricated and/or misleading news and information on social media, carried out by trolls – meaning, social media accounts not bearing the real profile of the owner.
According to the Resolution, the probe aims to protect the public from “manipulation” through the spread of “false or misleading news and information.” It also seeks to hold “the authors, distributors or purveyors of the said fake news responsible and/or accountable under the law for the contents they generate or disseminate.”
Tool of Empowerment
Trillanes is disgusted that social media is not anymore a tool for empowerment because his lies are counteracted with attacks on his credibility. When it is true that “social media trolls, do exist, Trillanes should know that he cannot hold the owners of troll accounts because they are unverifiable. That is why they are called “trolls” or fake social media accounts.
An elected public official like Trillanes is noted to spread lies against political opponents for character assassination. Binay, Marcos, Duterte and most particularly Bongbong Marcos are some of his major victims. He has ultimate loyalty to the Liberal Party because former President Benigno Aquino III pardoned him for sedition. The people resorted to social media trolls to counteract his lies. It is somewhat like the people of the Philippines versus Trillanes. Who is more believable in this case?
The Liberal Party loses so badly during the last elections. The win of the Vice President and some senators from the group is questionable. Most of their members have already transferred to the opposition. Only a few loyalists are left. President Rodrigo Duterte even announces that since the election, nobody wants to be LP anymore. Just recently, Gordon warns anti-administration senators who are also anti-Marcos to take their masks off and leave from the majority bloc.

[VIDEO]: SEN. GORDON BINATIKOS ANG MGA PLASTIK O MAPAGKUNWARING KASAPI NG MAJORITY BLOC NG SENADO
Anti-Administration Senators Inside the Majority Bloc
Gordon is talking about Franklin Drilon, Leila De Lima, Bam Aquino, Francis Pangilinan, and Risa Hontiveros, who are all members of the Senate majority bloc. They are the solid opposition in the Senate masquerading as administration players. “They have to take their mask out,” said Gordon.
Leave Majority Bloc
Gordon thinks that they should leave the majority bloc. The five senators are in unison with the libelous Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Ralph Recto who said that Federalism is ugly. Most of them, if not all support the series of protests against the late former president Ferdinand E. Marcos’ burial at the Heroes’ Cemetery.
Oust Duterte Plan Coincides with Anti-Marcos Protests
A senator can go against the plans of the president without being an anti-administration public official. Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri explains this during his conflict with Trillanes. He said that he is against the death penalty but he is never a part of any plan to oust the president unlike the senators mentioned by Gordon in the majority bloc. The anti-Marcos senators seen in protests are the same officials speculated to be part of the plan to oust Duterte.
Reason of Robredo’s Forced Resignation from the Cabinet
The president accuses Robredo of joining anti-Duterte rallies. Then she shows up at a Cabinet meeting the next day. Robredo and the Liberal Party members deny plans to unseat the President, but Duterte is sure that the “yellow group” cannot accept defeat. It is remembered that the Fil-Am billionaire, Loida Nicolas Lewis calls on Duterte to resign because she’s disgusted that he will let Bongbong Marcos take-over if he can’t deliver his promises.
Senator Antonio Trillanes III already warned President Rodrigo Duterte that his biggest headache in his administration is the Marcos burial. However, it is Trillanes who gets the shock of his life when his being a smart ass did not have the chance to interfere with the former President Ferdinand E. Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. All is done before the public knew about it.

[VIDEO]: The heated exchange erupted after Zubiri protested Trillanes’ accusation against him and Sen. Richard Gordon that they wanted to whitewash a Senate probe involving former Bureau of Immigration officials.
Smart Ass VS the Cool Head
Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri who is notably cool despite being an arnis champion is pushed to his limits when Trillanes accused him and Gordon for whitewashing the bribery involving former Bureau of Immigration officials. The “words war” reveals the nature of each senator. Zubiri who is factual in everything and Trillanes who is into deception, arrogance, and malicious towards his political enemies and fellow senators. He calls Zubiri a cheater.
Trillanes’ Malicious Accusations via the Media
Trillanes announces to the media that Sen. Gordon and Zubiri do not want the bribery scandal of Sec. Aguirre, BI officials and Jack Lam to be investigated because they know that they can’t stop him. Now, they wanted the case to be in their committee to whitewash, the same as the EJK hearings last month, Trillanes explains. Zubiri reminds Trillanes of his rebellion and that he’s lucky for Pnoy’s pardon that’s why he’s out of jail and now serving the Liberal Party in return.
Zubiri Took Offense on Trillanes’ Accusation
Zubiri stresses that he does not care if there will be an investigation. He moves that the bribery scandal at the BI, to be investigated by Gordon’s Senate blue ribbon committee. Zubiri also insists that he has never been accused of engaging in a whitewash ever when he was a member of the House of Representatives.
Unpleasant Exchanges Are Now Off the Record – Trillanes Off the Hook?
Sotto moves to strike off the record the two senators’ unpleasant and unparliamentary exchange – citing that under any circumstances, a senator cannot throw offensive words against another senator. Will Trillanes get a disciplinary action?
The damage is so massive that affects the family of former Vice President Jejomar Binay. This is after Senator Antonio Trillanes III stages a character assassination stint using the senate against them. It looks like the libelous senator is not even regretting. So what’s next after the court issued the warrant of arrest after Binay won the libel case?

[VIDEO]: Senator Antonio Trillanes III was given a warrant of arrest after former Vice President Jojo Binay got the favorable ruling on the libel case filed against him for using the senate as a method for character assassination accusing the former V.P. of unfounded corruption.
Trillanes Admits Not Having Evidence Against Binay
Trillanes boldly admits that he actually does not have any evidence against Binay – but boasted that he has no regrets, or else Jejomar Binay is now the President of the Philippines if not because of his libelous act. People should be smart enough to discern people like Trillanes. He would do everything that would serve his interests and not for the welfare of the Filipino people.
More The Lies
Trillanes, in an interview aired last April 2015 over several radio and television programs and in a newspaper article, made a public claim that members of the 6th Division of the Court of Appeals were given P50-million bribe money (P25-million for each of the justices). He alleged that that is in exchange for the favorable action on the petitions for a temporary restraining order and the writ of preliminary injunction.
Trillanes’ Back Up and the Result
Trillanes knows very well that the Liberal Party loses a lot if Binay becomes president. He knows a lot of things having allied with the Aquinos from the beginning. But Binay is one politician that has devoted his life to public service for the good of the people. Therefore, he forged an alliance with Duterte and Bongbong Marcos instead. The Liberal Party is now suffering from their own doing. They have tougher lives now that Duterte is the president.
Despite not having a political rank anymore, Binay remains a strong force in politics. He mentors the younger UNA members and serves as the consultant for many non-profit organizations with strong links from prominent business operators. His daughter Abby Binay is the mayor of Makati which is their bailiwick.

Allan Peter Cayetano seems to just laughed at the unexpected seating arrangement when he was in between Senator Nancy Binay and Trillanes during the resent senate session. He was even laughing with the lady senator. Can this be the start of a reconciliation now that the election is already over? President Rodrigo Duterte would have liked that if that is the case as he himself is a good friend of former Vice President Jejomar Binay. Indeed, this could be a way towards healing the country. Read this:
GMA reported: Am I being punished by the Senate? Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano jokingly raised this question Tuesday as he found himself seated in the middle of Senators Antonio Trillanes IV and Nancy Binay. He asked if he is not punished then it should be his seat mates were being punished.
Binay is the daughter of former Vice President Jejomar Binay whom Cayetano criticized for alleged corruption during his stint as Makati mayor. Cayetano, together with Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III and Trillanes, pushed for the Senate probe on the matter. Trillanes, on the other hand, had a rift with Cayetano when they both sought the vice presidency. Trillanes also scored Cayetano for defending his then runningmate, now President Rodrigo Duterte.
It added: Cayetano said he and Binay laughed over their situation. Asked if he would asked to be transferred to another seat, Cayetano said: No need as they have transferred already. Binay, meanwhile, told reporters that she was surprised with the seating arrangement.
Hilarious…Binay said. Do you know who my seat mates were? I’m ready but it seems that the two have not moved on yet; Binay joked. The seating arrangement will still be changed as Trillanes will be transferred to another seat being a member of the minority bloc.
