The former consultant of FVR (Fidel Valdez Ramos) named Jose Alejandrino called Senator Grace Poe “stupid” for refusing to grant Duterte’s request for emergency powers. Alejandrino explained that if Poe had used her brain, she should have granted the request of PRRD for emergency powers to solve Metro Manila’s traffic. If Duterte fails to solve Metro Manila’s traffic woes, she could have easily wiggle her way out of criticism and tell the public, “Don’t look at me. I gave him what he asked and he failed.” Otherwise, she could claim credit if the Duterte gov’t succeeds in solving the traffic

PH senators have millions of pesos at their disposal to hire the best people to help them with legislative work, run their offices and prepare statements on political issues. But after Senator Grace Poe made the remark that DOTr Secretary Art Tugade was an under-performer, Duterte supporters and bloggers can’t help but ask if Poe was getting the best advice from her staffs. In a Facebook post published at 16 September 2019, Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu made a kind gesture by giving Senator Grace Poe’s staffs tip how to spot a Boss. Perhaps, in the future, they will

The leftist organization Karapatan-Quezon reported on its Facebook page on 15 September 2019 that Alexa Pacalda, allegedly a human rights activist, has gone missing and read: Missing activist, Alexandrea Pacalda is now in custody of Gen. Luna police station. Her family, friends and colleagues call for her immediate release. Today, 16 September 2019, Karapatan-Quezon sang a different tune, this time asking for the release of Pacalda, whom they said was forcibly arrested by members of the military and brought to a military camp in Barangay San Miguel Dao, Lopez, Quezon. Well, that the narrative of the leftist organizations. However, as

Politicians like Grace Poe are the country’s greatest enemies! Not the exact words but the idea is the same. Radio host Mark Lopez has taken to Facebook quoting President Duterte and Gen. Antonio Luna, whose famous line became a hit among new generation Filipinos because of the movie “Heneral Luna”. Lopez, a staunch supporter of the Duterte administration, has intensified his offensive vs. Senator Poe after FPJ’s adopted daughter nixed the Duterte government’s request for emergency powers for the nth time since 2016. In a Facebook post titled “The Enemy Within” and published on 16 September 2019, Lopez recalled the

This is not the first time the allies of Senator Leila de Lima have called on the senate leadership to allow the detained senator to attend the senate sessions. In 2017, de Lima’s colleagues even pushed for de Lima to join senate sessions via teleconferencing. This did not push through because public opinion was against it. But for the nth time, they have been unsuccessful. However, a window of opportunity has opened slightly for the detained senator accused of illegal dr*g-related cases after the senate has started an inquiry on the controversial GCTA law after it was exposed

Ironic! Last week, Senator Grace Poe called DOTr Secretary Art Tugade an under-performer for failing to solve Metro Manila’s greatest conundrum – traffic. On that note, she asked President Duterte to find a replacement for Sec. Tugade asap. Of course, President Duterte stood by his classmate and friend Art Tugade and ignored the noise created by Sen. Poe’s on mainstream and social media. Why? Because Senator Poe’s ground for requesting Tugade’s removal from his post was baseless. Remember, the mandate of DOTr does not include traffic management. Besides, the 73-year old Tugade is Duterte admin’s best performer, with many achievements

Senator Ping Lacson has been drawing a lot of attention lately for himself by exposing the alleged anomalies in the BuCor including the “freedom for sale” racket of Bilibid officials. Because of that, the Duterte supporters won’t allow Lacson to go unpunished for his latest attempt to discredit the Duterte administration indirectly by attacking Nic Faeldon, PRRD’s trusted man in BuCor. True enough, the FB page “Para sa Bayan” posted several photos of Ping Lacson on Facebook today, 15 September 2019 together with Cris Mahilac, the small-town Mayor from Mindanao, who was included in Duterte’s narcolist. In the FB post,

When Krizette Chu first shared the story how the hardworking DOTr Secretary Art Tugade keeps an arinola inside his car because he does not want to stop his car while traveling to Clark to report for work for a leak, it was met with raised eyebrows and cynicism from critics. To end the cynicism of critics, Goddes Hope Oliveros Libiran, Tugade’s Assistant Secretary for Communications and Commuter Affairs at DOTr secretly took a photo of the “mahiwagang arinola” and posted it on Facebook on 15 September 2019. Libiran’s FB post has been a huge hit among the Duterte supporters. In fact,

Political science grad Jun Avelino believed Grace Poe has “slaughtered” her own 2022 Presidential ambition on the issue of Emergency Powers. In a 5069-word Facebook post, Avelino gave netizens an insight how the Poe’s camp is executing her plan for the upcoming 2022 Presidential election and part of their strategy is to give her an early edge over her rivals. Political kibitzers are unanimous in saying that Poe will try her luck once again, despite badly losing in her first try in the 2016 Presidential election. Avelino said Poe’s political posturing on various national issues is primarily designed to advance

It’s a Sunday and after logging in on Facebook, I went to check Jay Sonza’s wall and I was greeted by this? You know what is this? Sonza is reminding us how fucked up the Philippines is when you have senators like Win Gatchalian, Ping Lacson, Frank Drilon, Cynthia Villar, Grace Poe and Risa Hontiveros who have done nothing but to further their own personal and political agenda rather than public interest. In a Facebook post published today, 15 September 2019, Sonza wrote about 6 senators who walks around in public like they are perfect, the unsullied and defenders of
