As the Quo Warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida continues to hog the limelight, there has been a lot of fake news circulating online regarding the reason why the petition was filed. Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the other half of the FB Page Luminous by Trixie Cruz-Angeles & Ahmed Paglinawan has taken to Facebook to shed light on the issue. Angeles used Tagalog as medium to reach out to as many Filipinos as she can, to stop the wrong information from dominating the narrative and putting President Duterte and his administration in a bad light. Angeles began by politely

While VP Leni Robredo gave a dismal 1/100 grade to Duterte admin’s anti-illegal drugs campaign, Pinoy netizens have a field day criticizing Robredo for having the nerve to make a report and recommendation as though her brief stint in ICAD made her an instant expert. This is the sentiment of pro-Duterte lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the other half of the FB page “Luminous by Trixie Cruz-Angeles & Ahmed Paglinawan” from whom I borrowed this line in her latest FB post. Angeles bared that Robredo did not meet all the clusters of ICAD, did not get all the data and most of

A lawyer supporter of the Duterte admin reveals the favorite hanash of the Opposition lately which goes like this: the Government needs to take it easy on the revocation of water concession agreements because it could affect the country’s credit rating if we don’t honor our contracts with investors. They asked what will happened to the stock market? To our loans? So, ok. Ang linya ng kabilang parlor kailangan huminahon, bababa ang credit rating natin dahil di maasahan ang mga kontrata. Paano ang stock market? Paano ang loans? Lawyer Trixie Cruz Angeles, the other half of the FB Page Luminous

If the statement of Leni Robredo’s spokesman Atty. Barry Gutierrez is an indication, it appears Robredo isn’t keen in accepting her new job as the co-chair of the of anti-illegal drugs body but merely making excuses to evade responsibility. Gutierrez said Duterte’s gesture is an admission that there something missing in the drug war. Gutierrez remarked the appointment lacks details or substance. He called it problematic in the sense that it was not clear what powers or authority the Vice President will have as the co-chairperson of the inter-agency committee on anti-illegal drugs. Gutierrez’s statement turned out to be “problematic”.

If I need a lawyer right now, have no money and any one of the lawyers identified with LP volunteers to be my counsel, I think I’ll just tell them “Thank you” for the gesture but I would rather bet on PAO lawyers to represent me in court. If you say I was crazy, I bet you would agree with me after you read how Atty. Erin Tanada from LP was schooled by DDS lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles on legal debate like determining who is qualified to to be admitted to the WPP (Witness Protection Program). If you have been out

A pro-Duterte lawyer couldn’t help but mocked Senator Kiko Pangilinan after he sidestepped the issue raised by PRRD re Juvenile Delinquency Act rather than defending it. Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles told Pangilinan that logic dictates him to answer the point raised by PRRD. Instead, Pangilinan told PRRD to answer the various issues against him. In light of this, Angeles expressed disbelief of Pangilinan’s handling of the criticism of PRRD against him. Angeles lamented Pangilinan’s inability to defend the law he crafted. Angeles wanted Pangilinan to introduced amendments to the Juvenile Delinquency Act to pacify PRRD. Dear Sen. Pangilinan: Logic requires you

I’ve already posted an article re: Karen Davila’s tweet questioning the SC decision upholding conviction of Carlos Celdran for violating Art.133 in the Revised Penal Code. The ABS-CBN broadcaster was literally schooled by twitterverse but we don’t know if Karen who has celebrity syndrome would welcome such from non-lawyers. So let’s hope this Facebook post from lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles would reach at Karen Davila’s feed. Moving forward, Angeles’s explanation was clear and concise in such a way that even a 5th grader can understand it. Angeles said Davila tweet on Celdran and Duterte was like comparing apple to santol. Read

In case you missed it, Rappler has been appointed as Facebook’s official partner in the Philippines to check “fake news”. The one million dollar is, “who will check the fact-checker when the fact checker is spreading fake news?” Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles rallies her social media followers to demand that Facebook fact-check Maria Ressa of Rappler for spreading fake news. Angeles did not say it explicitly but if you closely at the end of her post, she used the hashtag #FactCheckRappler to announce her intention to Facebook. In case you didn’t know, Vera Files of Ellen Tordesillas, another commentary blog website,

When sought for his comment on CGMA as the new House Speaker during an ambush interview, Pnoy responded by posing a question to his bitter political enemy. “What can GMA do in the remaining months of her last term as House speaker”? Whether the former President and now House Speaker CGMA did watch the CNN video wherein her former student posed the question or not, lawyer Trixie Curz-Angeles could resist the itch to speak in behalf of Arroyo and give Pnoy what he wouldn’t want to hear. Here’s what Angeles told Pnoy on Facebook re “What can GMA do in

In reaction to the anti-tambay policy of the Duterte government, Senator Bam Aquino was overheard quipping, “Mahirap na naman ang itinatarget.” The poor are being targeted. Lawyer Trixie Cruz-Angeles said she is not surprised why Senator Bam Aquino made such statement. Angeles, playing the spoiler’s role, exposed Senator Bam Aquino’s ulterior motives in trying to make it appear that PRRD and this administration is anti-poor. Ask me why? Bam wants the poor to hate Duterte because the poor comprises the biggest chunk among the President’s supporters. If that happens, knock on wood, Duterte is ripe for the picking via popular
