Netizen on Robredo’s right to criticize: “Niluklok ka ng taong bayan para maging kaisa ng gobyerno, hindi para maging kritiko”

0

A netizen and blogger made an open letter to Vice President Leni Robredo after the latter said that she has the right to criticize the Duterte administration.

In a Facebook post, Noel Landero Sarifa agreed that it’s Robredo’s basic right to said what she wanted against the government, but he reminded the Vice President that she’s also part of the government she’s being critical to.

Sarifa also said that the people voted for Robredo to help the government and not to criticize it.

“Yes, you do have the right to criticize the government, which you are actually a part of. But madam, if you have good intentions and delikadesa, you should work with the government,” Sarifa said.

“Niluklok ka ng taong bayan sa isang position sa gobyerno(which is questionable by the way) hindi para maging kritiko, kundi upang maging kaisa sa pagpapatakbo ng bansa, sa pag-angat ng ekonomiya,” he added.

“Hindi para umupo at kumuda tuwing may mga bagay ka na hindi sinasang ayunan. Kung meron ka mang mungkahi, pwede mo itong idulog sa kinauukulan, dahil ano mang ikagaganda o ikakasira ng gobyerno, kasama ka doon,” he also said.

Aside from Sarifa, GMA-7 writer Suzette Doctolero also criticized Robredo because of the same statement.

Yesterday, during an interview with GMA-7 journalist Howie Severino, Robredo said that criticizing is one of the demands of being Filipino.

“Kahit hindi ako VP, kahit ordinaryong mamamayan lang ako may karapatan akong ipahayag ‘yung aking mga mungkahi. May karapatan akong mag-criticize if I need to criticize, kasi ‘yun ‘yung demands ng pagiging Filipino ko. And demands sa akin as a Filipino ay maging bahagi, maging bahagi ako sa nation building,”  said Robredo.

One of the known writers of GMA-7 shows slammed Vice President Leni Robredo and urged her to resign if the latter really wanted to criticize the Duterte government.

In a Facebook post, Doctolero shared an article from GMA-7 about Robredo trying to defend herself from the criticisms she received from being critical to the government.

In the said interview with Howie Severino, Robredo pointed out that it’s her right to criticize the government.

“Kahit hindi ako VP, kahit ordinaryong mamamayan lang ako may karapatan akong ipahayag ‘yung aking mga mungkahi. May karapatan akong mag-criticize if I need to criticize, kasi ‘yun ‘yung demands ng pagiging Filipino ko. And demands sa akin as a Filipino ay maging bahagi, maging bahagi ako sa nation building,”  said Robredo.

Doctolero who’s known for creating Encantadia and being involved in other 43 GMA shows said that it’s fine for Robredo to criticize the government if she’s not having the ambition to run in the 2022 presidential elections.

The writer also pointed out that Robredo was part of the government.

“Okay lang naman na icriticize niya. Basta sabihin niya, “walang personal interest o ambition ito kasi di ako tatakbo next election you m*derp*kers kaya I have every right to criticize this %%^** govt!” Ganyan. E di bibilib ako. Pero Hindi. Tatakbo siya, di ba? Amoy na amoy ang ambisyon, na wala namang masama. Kaso vp siya. Part siya ng govt ni Pduts. Kaya bad taste,” said Doctolero.

“Parang empleyado ka na sinisiraan ang boss at kompanya mo tapos may kapal ka pa ng mukha na pumasok sa work? Weg genen,” she added.

She then suggested that Robredo should resign and fight for her principles instead of working to the government she always criticized.

“Mag resign na lang kaya siya as Vp tapos awayin ang govt? mas okay pa iyon, mas may balls. Mas kahanga-hanga at may prinsipyo. Pero pag VP ka, at inaaway mo ang gobyerno At Presidente, maski kaaway-away pa ito, dahil ikaw ang back up, traydor lang at halatang atat ang dating mo,” she said.

“Shut up, cooperate and help this govt OR leave/resign and speak up. Ganun po ang tunay na disente, madam. Isa ka pang pasaway e! Dami na nga naming problema, dadagdag ka pa!? Lol” she added.

Doctolero is a known supporter of the government and also known for clashing with Angel Locsin because of the ABS-CBN franchise renewal issue.

 

Roque to VP Robredo: “Nothing will be enough for someone na hindi nakikita ng kahit anong mabuti sa pamahalaan”

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque slammed Vice President Leni Robredo for saying that the testing capacity in the Philippines is not enough to fight the pandemic.

Robredo, in an interview, said that the current 30,000 testing capacity per day of the government should be increase if the government’s goal is to “have less than 5 percent positivity rate”.

The Vice President made the said statement on the show of Howie Severino aired on May 15.

As a response, Roque said that the Vice President’s statement was not surprising at all.

“Of course, nothing will ever be enough for someone na hindi nakikita ng kahit anong mabuti sa pamahalaan,” Roque said.

“Pero sa ngayon po pinakamataas na ang testing natin sa Southeast Asia, Mas mataas pa po sa Korea at Japan. Ipagpapatuloy pa natin ito dahil kung kinakailangan, dapat tayo ang pinakamataas sa testing sa buong mundo. Kung kakayanin natin bakit hindi,” he added.

According to him, the government already planned to build more facility to increase the testing capacity of the country.

“Kinakailangan natin mapabilisan yung pagkagawa ng mga isolation facilities, dahil lahat dapat na nag positibo ay mailagay sa facility isolation. Kinakailangan din mapaigting pa natin ang tracing natin na sa ngayon mas magiging malawak dahil nandiyan na yung safety.ph, yung computer system na tutulong sa testing at yung formula na sinusunod natin na ginawa ni Mayor Magalong, our tracing czar, na hanggang 37 close contacts at ating iti-trace.” said Roque.

In the same interview Robredo defended herself, saying that it’s her right to criticize the government.

“Kahit hindi ako VP, kahit ordinaryong mamamayan lang ako may karapatan akong ipahayag ‘yung aking mga mungkahi. May karapatan akong mag-criticize if I need to criticize, kasi ‘yun ‘yung demands ng pagiging Filipino ko. And demands sa akin as a Filipino ay maging bahagi, maging bahagi ako sa nation building,” Robredo said.

 

LIST: Name of officials that would face charges over PhilHealth corruption

0

President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, September 14 approved the recommendation of the task force created to investigate the alleged questionable activities in the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth).

Duterte read the recommendation during the recent IATF meeting.

Here are the names of officials that would face charges:

  1. Philhealth President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ricardo C. Morales; violation of Sections 3(e), (g) of RA No. 3019; Malversation of Public Funds or Property of Illegal Use of Public Funds or Property under the Revised Penal Code; and violation of Sections 251, 255 and 272 of the National Revenue Code;
  2. Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Arnel De Jesus for violation of Section 3930 of RA No. 3019;
  3. Senior Vice President Jovita V. Aragona, Chief
    Information Officer and Head of the Information
    Management Sector, for: violation of Sections 3(a),
    (e), (g) of RA No. 3019; Frauds against the public
    treasury and similar offenses under the Revised
    Penal Code;
  4. Senior Vice President Renato Limsiaco, Jr. for:
    violation of Section 3(e) of RA No. 3019; and
    Malversation of Public Funds or Property under the
    Revised Penal Code;
  5. Senior Vice President Israel Francis A. Pargas
    of the Health Financial Policy Sector for: violation of
    Section 3(e) of RA No. 3019;
  6. Officer in Charge Calixto Gabuya, Jr. for:
    violation of Sections 3(e), (g) of RA No. 3019; and
    Frauds against the public treasury and similar
    offenses under the Revised Penal Code; and
  7. Division Chief Bobby A. Crisostomo for
    violation of Section 3(a) of RA No. 3019.
    The Task Force also recommended that
    administrative charges for, among others,
    dishonesty, gross neglect of duty, grave
    misconduct, and conduct prejudicial to the best
    interest of the service, be filed against these
    individuals.

Duterte said that the said officials have a chance to prove that they’re innocent before the court.

“I am sorry for them but they would have to undergo trial. Although, they can always prove their guilt beyond reasonable doubt. Wala pa namang ano pa eh. The presumption of innocence still attaches but the report of another agency says otherwise. So ganun ho ang nangyari sa PhilHealth halos lahat sa board,” Duterte said.

Meanwhile, Senate President Vicente Sotto III expressed disappointment after the said task force didn’t recommend to file charges against Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Francisco Duque III and and Philhealth SVP for the legal sector Rodolfo del Rosario Jr.

The probe against PhilHealth official started after the agency’s former anti-fraud officer Thorsson Montes Keith revealed the alleged fraudalent activities.

“Naniniwala po ako na ang perang winaldas at ninakaw ay humigit kumulang ₱15 billion. Naniniwala po ako na ang dahilan kung bakit hindi natatapos ang korapsyon sa PhilHealth at naging kultura na po nito, ay ang pagtatalaga ng mga sindikato o mafia ng kanilang kasamahan, kasabwat o kapwa sindikato sa mga matataas na posisyon na nakakatulong sa kanilang iligal operasyon,” said Thorsson.

 

Blogger binanatan si ACT-CIS Rep. Eric Yap matapos siya nitong tawagin na mukhang virus

0

Isang blogger ang binanatan si ACT-CIS party-list Representative Eric Yap matapos diumano siyang tawagin ng mambabatas na mukhang virus.

Sa isang post ay binanatan ng may ari ng Pinoy Ako Blog na si Jover Laurio si Yap dahil sa panglalait na ginawa nito sa kanya matapos nitong punahin ang isang building na ipinangalan sa mambabatas.

Ayon kay Laurio ay dapat magpasalamat pa nga si Yap sa kanya.

“Una ang isyu, bawal kasi ang epal sa mga elected officials na gaya mo. It’s in the law po,” ani Laurio.

Kahit pa sabihin mo ako na kamukha ng virus, wala naman sa isyu yun, ang importante ngayon pinaalis mo ang pangalan mo sa building na yan, kasi yun ang tamang gawin,” dagdag pa niya.

“Instead na laitin mo ako, dapat nga nagpasalamat ka kasi , when I called you out it led you to decide to do the right thing,”

Matatandaan na noong budget hearing ng Office of the President ay direktang binanatan ni Yap si Laurio dahil sa pagpapakalat diumano nito ng maling impormasyon tungkol sa “Eric Yap Building”.

Itinayo ang nasabing building sa Benguet General Hospital at sinabi ni Yap na sariling pera niya ang ginamit sa pagpapatayo nito.

Ayon sa kanya ay kung nagkatawang tao daw ang sakit na kumakalat sa bansa ngayon ay magiging kamukha ito ni Laurio.

“Ngayon po, ang akin lang po, para kay Jover [Laurio], nakita ko po ‘yong page niya eh. Lahat na lang po puro galit, puro maling impormasyon. Iisa lang po ang tama sa impormasyong pinost ‘nya, kung saan mayrooon doon na mukha niya na pinapakita niya ano po ang itsura ng C0VID kung ito ay magiging tao,”  saad ni Yap.

Kilala si Laurio bilang kritiko ni Pangulong Duterte at minsan ay napapasobra pa nga ito sa kanyang mga banat.

Maalala na natalo din si Laurio sa libel case na inihain niya laban sa isa pang blogger na tumawag sa kanyang “Ogre Lady”.

 

 

 

Dawn Zulueta tinawag na “KJ” ang linya ni Agot Isidro kay Jinkee Pacquiao

Hindi napigilan magbigay ng kumento ng aktres na si Dawn Zulueta tungkol sa banat noon ni Agot Isidro kay Jinkee Pacquiao.

Isa sa kanyang mga followers sa Instagram ang tila ginaya ang linya ni Isidro matapos nitong makita na nagbibisikleta ang aktres sa isa sa kanyang mga larawan.

“Konting sensitivity naman pOe maam dawn. Hindi lahat po tayo ay nakakalabas ng bahay at hindi lahat tayo ay may ganyang kagandang kutis, kapag nakita po yan ni Agot, naku po. hahahaaa char ganito pala feeling ng basher mo mama, nakakakilabot,” sabi ni @zg_mee kay Zulueta.

Natawa nalang si Zulueta sa kumento ng kanyang fan at tinawag ang linya na “killjoy”.

Pero sinabi niya na dapat ay huwag nalang isali si Isidro sa kanilang mga comment.

“Wag na natin isama si Agot sa usapan. Natawa lang ako sa “basher” mode,” ani Zulueta.

Screenshot mula sa Instagram page ni @dawnzulueta

Maalala na nakuha ni Isidro ang atensyon ng mga netizen ng bigla niyang punahin ang pagpapakita ng mamahaling bisikleta ni Pacquiao sa kanyang Instagram page.

“Alam namin na marami kayong pera. At kung ano ang gusto ninyong gawin sa pera na yun, wala kaming pakialam,” ani Isidro.

“Pero marami rin ang walang trabaho at nagkukumahog humanap ng pera para may pakain sa kanilang pamilya. Puede ba, konting sensitivity man lang?” dagdag pa niya.

Nilinaw naman ni Pacquiao na ang bisikleta na kanyang ipinakita sa Instagram ay regalo lamang ng isang kaibigan.

Ilang araw lang matapos siyang batikusin ni Isidro ay ipinakita ulit ni Mrs. Pacquiao ang kanyang bisikleta sa kanyang mga fans.

Hanggang ngayon ay hindi nagbigay ng kahit anong komento si Pacquiao kay Isidro.

President Duterte to the Filipinos: “Wag po sana kayong maniwala sa mga dilawan, opposition, kung ano-ano ang pinagsasabi”

0

President Rodrigo Duterte urged the Filipinos not to believe what the opposition or the ‘dilawans’ are saying against the government.

During his most recent talk to the nation, Duterte responded to the criticisms that they’re receiving from the opposition amid the pandemic.

“Wag ho sana kayong maniwala diyan sa mga dilawan, opposition na hampas dito, hampas doon,” Duterte said “As long as the virus lives in this planet we are in real danger” 

According to him, believing every word coming from the opposition might only gave them hopelessness.

“We did not join government to lie. Bakit kami magsinungaling? Hindi namin trabaho ‘yan,” he said.

Several critics of President Duterte criticized the latter for the response of the government and its priorities amid the crisis happening in the country.

One of the issues being thrown against the government is the white sand project being done in Manila Bay.

Isinugod sa ospital ang panganay na anak ni Karen Davila na si David matapos itong makaranas ng ‘seizure’.

Sa isang Instagram post ay ipinakita ni Davila ang lagay ng kanyang anak na nagpapahinga na ngayon.

Ayon kay Davila na kagagaling lang sa Sorsogon ay sinalubong pa sila ng kanilang anak pagdating nila sa kanilang tinitirhan.

Ngunit bigla na lamang itong inatake ng seizure kaya’t agad silang humingi ng tulong.

Si David ay mayroong espesyal na kondisyon kung saan ay nangangailangan ito ng karagdagang kalinga sa kanyang mga magulang.

Todo pasalamat naman si Davila na ligtas na ang kanyang anak sa panganib.

“Now, seizures can be common for kids with autism but David has never really had them. He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old,” ani Davila.

“Thank God for my husband & the first responders of our condo lobby. They were fast thinkers, equipped to assist & knew what to do to make sure he would stay alive. And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David.” dagdag pa niya.

Ayon kay Davila ay ginagawa na ng mga doktor ni David ang lahat para hindi na maulit ang nasabing insidente.

AMAZING GRACE 🎚 Yesterday afternoon, my husband DJ & I arrived from an overnight trip to Sorsogon. Our son David welcomed us at our condo lobby… when out of the blue, he just started having a full blown seizure! Now, seizures can be common for kids with autism but David has never really had them. He has only had one scary episode when he was 7 yrs old. Thank God for my husband & the first responders of our condo lobby. They were fast thinkers, equipped to assist & knew what to do to make sure he would stay alive. And all I did was shout the name of our Lord Jesus Christ non-stop, asking HIM to heal & save David. And this is why I am sharing this. I thank our Lord Jesus Christ for saving David yesterday. David slowly woke up and we rushed him to the ER. I thank God his memory and faculties are perfect. I thank Dr. Francis Dimalanta @fxdmd , his pedia with autism expertise. Doc Francis recently survived & he shared that all he could do during his darkest times was call on Jesus too. David is OK now and undergoing a 24 hour video EEG which helps monitor brain movement. Our goal is to prevent this from happening again. What real FAITH & LIFE LESSON did God teach me today? There is POWER in the name of Jesus Christ! 🎚 It doesn’t matter who you are, what church you go to, whether you think you’re a good or bad person – calling on the name of Jesus changes everything! 😇 To God be the glory 🥰 Hug your kids today! Tell your family & friends how special they are! Appreciate LIFE ❤️ #sept142020

Malacañang confirms that President Rodrigo Duterte gives financial aid to Laude family three times

0

Malacañang denied the claims of the camp of Filipina transwoman Jennifer Laude that President Rodrigo Duterte promised to prevent US Marine Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton from gaining his freedom.

In a press briefing on Monday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said that Duterte didn’t break any promise to the Laude family.

According to him, Duterte only vowed to give justice to Laude and the President fulfilled it.

“Ang alam ko po ay walang ganyang promise ang Presidente, ang pangako po ni Presidente ay bibigyan ng katarungan ang kamatayan ni Jennifer Laude at nakulong naman po si Pemberton ng halos anim na taon,” said Roque.

Roque also confirmed that President Duterte gave financial aid to Julita Laude, the mother the Jennifer.

“I can confirm only because Mrs. Laude already said na nakatanggap sila ng financial aid pero ang pagkabilin bilin po ni Presidente ‘ay hindi ko pinangangalandakan kung sino ang tinutulungan ko’,” he said.

“But since nangaling na po yan kay Mrs. Laude, I can confirm, the President gave them financial assistance three times, pero ‘yung halaga ay bahala na po sila… wag na po nating isapubliko dahil ayaw sanang ilabas ni Presidente ‘yung tulong niya sa Laude family pero ang tulong niya ay tulong naman po sa lahat ng nangangailangan,” he added.

He also assured that the LGBTQIA+ community in the country is still safe despite the decision of the President to grant pardon to Pemberton.

The Spokesperson pointed out that the government deported Pemberton and he’s not allowed to come back to the country anymore.

Roque is the former legal counsel of the Laude family.

A few days ago, Mrs. Laude expressed disappointment to President Duterte, saying that they’re only asking for more time to Pemberton to face his consequences.

“Sampung taong pagkakakulong lang sana ang hinihingi naming kabayaran para sa buhay ng anak ko, SAMPUNG TAON LANG SANA! Napaka iksing panahong kabayarang pagkakakulong para sa buhay ng anak ko,” said Julita.

Aside from the financial help they received from the President, the camp of Pemberton also paid P4.5-M to the family of Laude.

 

Jimuel Pacquiao, itinanggi nagbigay sila ng ayuda sa kanyang ex-girlfriend na si Heaven Peralejo

0

Mariing itinanggi ni Jimuel Pacquiao ang mga balita na humingi ang kanyang ex-girlfriend na si Heaven Peralejo ng tulong pinansiyal mula sa kanyang pamilya.

Sa isang Instagram story ay sinabi ni Pacquiao na hindi totoo ang isinulat ng beteranong showbiz writer na si Lolit Solis tungkol sa kanyang dating nobya na si Peralejo.

“There was no money given and there was no communication. We keep getting involved in these issues and I just want to clear things up. She is not that type of girl and we are in good terms so no need for all the bashing,” saad ni Jimuel.

screenshot from Jimuel Pacquiao’s Instagram story.

Matatandaan na inilabas ni Solis ang nasabing balita kung saan ay kinausap daw ni Heaven si Senador Manny Pacquiao tungkol sa ayuda.

“May balitang humingi daw ng tulong si Heaven Peralejo kay Champ Manny Pacquiao Salve. Dating BF ni Heaven ang anak na lalaki ni Champ Manny kaya at least magka kilala sila, pero ang hindi maganda at baka malagyan ng malisya iyon kay Champ Manny nag text si Heaven,” ani Solis.

Tumulong naman agad daw ang pamilya Pacquiao at mismong nanay daw ni Jimuel na si Jinkee ang nagbigay ng 100,000 pesos kay Heaven.

“Napakabait naman ni Mama Jinkee dahil binigyan niya ng 100k financial na tulong si Heaven. Sa panahon ngayon talagang dapat lang na pag medyo kilala mo at maaring makatulong sa iyo, lapitan mo,” saad niya.

Nagbigay naman ng mungkahi si Solis kay Heaven at sinabing dapat ay kay Jinkee na lamang siya manghingi ng tulong at huwag kay Manny upang maiwasan ang pagkakaroon ng “malisya”.

“Dapat talagang magpasalamat ni Heaven kay mama Jinkee, bongga ha, 100k agad ang padala,” dagdag pa niya.

Noong 2019 at itinaggi na ni Heaven ang mga paratang na siya ay isang “gold digger” at sinabing wala siyang nakuhang pera kay Jimuel.

“I mean, I don’t get money from him. OK, I have work. Hindi ko naman siya tatay para kunan ng pera,” ani Heaven.
