Many, many online sites have been put up by political spin doctors in order to smear rival candidates.
Which is one reason why I am very careful not to immediately believe short video clips posted as proof of wrongdoing. I have made it a rule for myself to see the entire video clip first before making a conclusion.
In fact, that is what I did with the Rodrigo Duterte video clips on his “rape” story.
The short clip below was posted last night immediately after the presidential debates. It claimed that ABS-CBN and perhaps Karen Davila leaked questions in advance to Mar Roxas. Which is why he came well prepared.
In other words, Mar Roxas cheated, the unknown writer claimed. Because how else could the one typing the heads for ABS-CBN know what Mar Roxas was about to say if he or she did not have Mar Roxas’ replies in advance.
Look at this –
The allegation of cheating seems highly believable if you only listen to this short video clip.
But, it turns out, the video clip was edited to make it appear that Roxas and ABS-CBN were in cahoots.
Because the official transcript of the debate shows the clip referred only to the second time that Roxas had mentioned “malalaking interes”.
Karen Davila: Pero kaya niyo bang lahat na banggain ang mga malalaking department store, malalaking mall? Thirty seconds Secretary Roxas.
Sec. Mar Roxas: Alam mo, Karen, sa kasaysayan ko, binangga ko mga malalaking interes. Pharmaceutical industry, cheaper medicine law, banking industry at insurance industry, yung pre-need law natin. So sa aking karanasan, binabangga ko ang mga malalaking interes kung ito ay para sa kapakanan ng ordinaryong Pilipino. Wala akong problema doon.
Could the unknown writer have made a mistake and only heard the second time that Roxas had said those words?
It was clear the post was meant to deceive, provoke and anger a lot of people. Because the first part of Roxas’ sentence was cut away, precisely to give that impression of cheating. You could see the editing was crudely done because the clip did not start at the beginning of the sentence.
It’s the same thing that the Roxas critics did to him in that edited voice clip of his altercation with Tacloban city Mayor Alfred Romualdez. They removed sections that would have explained his very controversial statement which mentioned the words “Romualdez” and “Aquino”.
President DUTERTE says
walang kwentang site lahat ng tao dito eh pro ROXAS-ROBREDO na mga mandaraya! hahaha! close this stupid site for idiots! DU30 for the win! CHANGE IS COMING mga INUTILS!!!!
Obviously, you haven’t read the commenters
Some are for Duterte.
Vhin AB says
Meron din Poe dito.
Web, Wave, and Waiver
It is quite irresistible to write about the above alliteration.
Web of lies!
We started to unravel Binay’s true corrupt nature ahead of everybody else in the social media and we even scooped the established media. I remember writing the epitaph of Binay that his popularity was temporary and will be waning once the Filipinos become aware of how Binay amassed his ill-gotten wealth. I stated here that Binay is a textbook case of ill-gotten wealth for how could he explain his and his family’s wealth when his source of income is solely being a public servant of Makati and a stint at MMDA? How can Binay afford the huge mansions? How could Binay accumulated his vast estates? How could Binay live in affluence and same with his daughters and son who live affluently and their source of income too is solely being a government servant? Binay is toast (@Parekoy-pun intended) and how his might turned into flight in a downward spiral!
Binay did not sign any waiver though and did try a stunt in the second Presidential Debate of bringing waiver forms to paint he has nothing to hide. But he is so damaged that his ploy was easily brushed off and considered a desperate move by a guilty plunderer. Ignoring him even hurts him more for the rivals considered him a sure loser!
Poe did the same in her NBFC and Ten year Residency cases. She concocted a web of lies just to extricate herself from her self-inflicted signed document that she did not indeed fulfill the ten year residency requirement. She needed to thank Aquino for Aquino blinked and wanted her as an insurance policy in case she wins the Presidency so as not to face DAP charges. Aquino’s design is self-serving and she benefitted from it. Aquino wanted more horses in the race that is why he used all his influence on his SC appointed justices and even the Solicitor General to rescue Poe! Poe’s web of lies was even reinforced by Aquino’s web of influence!
Wave of Yolanda!
Roxas was supposed to be the hero of Yolanda but the tsunami and surge of demolition by Binay as early as 2010 was formidable and Roxas was put on the defensive.
Roxas was considered as a goner- A political dead person. Yet, I was one among the firm believers that Roxas will prevail! I backed up my claim with reasoning and logic as well as reality on the ground. I even tried to educate the readers that Roxas is the most formidable among the candidates. Even though the manufactured surveys showed him as a bottom dweller (not considering Santiago), still he was and is treated as a frontrunner by his opponents! Why? Because even his opponents know that the manufactured surveys are for propaganda purposes only and trying to create a bandwagon, and they know the reality of politics on the ground: Roxas is the strongest among them and that reality is what counts on May 9!
Roxas was hit with a lot of waves but he is a good swimmer and survives. And when Leni Robredo joined him as his VP and Leni showed that indeed Roxas-Robredo tandem represents the decency, anti-corrupt, anti-dynasty, promotes transparency, and promised progress in governane unheard of before, then Leni became the surfboard of Roxas! Roxas, with the help of Robredo, is able to ride the waves and conquered the obstacles and instead used the momentum of waves of destruction as a vehicle to be above the fray and pushes Roxas towards the shore of victory!
Wave, Web, and Waiver for Duterte
Duterte was making waves and noises! He was successful drawing the attention of the exasperated segment of our society when it comes to criminality and drugs! Duterte was popular and reinforced his own myth by following it up with hot air and bravado! He made a web of outrageous claims and embellishments about his track record in Davao City, but reality, facts, and statistics debunked all his claims about one of the safest cities in the world! Duterte has one of the best social media armies among the candidates and as already shared before, it is easy to game the internet by employing a virtual army of fake accounts and release plenty of testimonials favoring the sponsor candidate! And it is a fact that there are plenty of gullible Filipino netizens who believe almost all written and read in the internet. For avid Duterte supporters confirmation bias plays an important role in making them believe every little favorable articles and claims they read about Duterte however dubious! They became the blind folowers of Duterte!
But lies upon lies and Duterte is caught by his own web of lies! He opened his candidacy with a bang, oops rather with sexual harassment by proudly pinching the nipples of his female supporters and feeling their privates in public to the dismay of Pimentel and Cayetano at the launch of Duterte’s candidacy for President! He forced himself to the women and kissed maliciously the unfortunate female supporters in the full view of cameras! Duterte proudly showed off his sexual advances! However, Duterte was vilified but remained unrepentant for his advances! He cursed the Pope and found out, he stubbornly stood his ground and never apologetic! He never accepts he makes mistakes but he also realized that when even his VP and financiers were dismayed about his behavior, he relented and issued a fake late apology! His team of social media propagandists even concocted a fake endorsement from the Pope! Duterte never respects women and he did not learn from his mistakes. He out-Duterte himself and did a very despicable thing that will even drag the Ambassadors of Australia and USA! Duterte never waiver to do his usual outrageous despicable behavior and he did proudly of using the rape and murder victim Jacqueline Hamill as part of his comic relief repertoire and claimed that he should have been first to rape Jacqueline Hamill after he saw her pretty dead face! After seeing the video, I saw that the crowd did a forced laugh out of courtesy to Duterte, but I could see their confusion and they know something is amiss and they had a feeling that Duterte just disrespected the dead by his Necrophiliac desires! He did not apologize! Cayetano and Pimentel did the damage control. Even without Duterte’s blessing they issued a statement of apology which they claimed it was Duterte’s but lo and behold, Duterte disowned the apology! Duterte issued his own non-apology and haunts him even to this day!
Since Duterte is running in the platform against criminality, drugs and corruption, he performed a stunt during the first debate that he is waving his rights and issued a general waiver for his bank accounts to project that he is lily white and never involved himself in any corruption money-wise! He even challenged everybody that if they find out that he stole a single peso from the coffers of government, he will withdraw his candidacy!
Trillanes took up his challenge and as usual, Trillanes found not only a peso of questionable weath but P211,000,000 reasons of unexplained deposits in BPI bearing the names of Sara and Rodrigo Duterte. Now it even ballooned to P277,000,000! But what was the reaction of feisty Duterte? He is now taking back his waiver to open his bank accounts! Duterte showed his true self that he is a coward when faced with a formidable challenger! A simple admission that he is cornered and the accusations has legs for Duterte is so worried that if he did not plug it with a retraction of a waiver then many of his other bank accounts will be opened and the Filipino People will find out that this Anti-Corruption Candidate is worth close to a billion pesos of cash deposited in Philippine banks alone! This shows that Duterte was not really planning to run for the Presidency! Why? Because of the obvious fact that he did not clean up his mess yet when he decided or convinced to run for the Presidency! Duterte left trails and evidence! If he remained as the warlord of Davao City, the Filipinos will never find out how Duterte enriched himself by dipping into the public coffers! He seemed unaware that offering himself as the next President of the Republic will invite scrutiny!
In the land where loose lips are aplenty and bank records are not really as secret that the depositor thought it would be, Duterte made a huge blunder by not hiding properly his hidden ill-gotten wealth!
Binay smells less odious right now than his accuser Duterte! Duterte is not only a Berdugo of killing poor suspects but also a Berdugo of public funds! Duterte just showed that he is even worse than Binay!
Maybe Duterte is simple minded whose claim to fame is by Killing! Duterte seems to never heard of the saying when he offered to release a waiver for his bank accounts to portray that he is not corrupt,
Be careful of what you wish for…
Trillanes accepted his bluff and now Duterte wishes that Trillanes swims with the fishes!
The aftermath of this new explosive evidence against Duterte places Roxas and Poe to the homestretch!
Roxas by surfing the waves with Robredo is the best bet to be the first to touch the shore of Victory!
Roxas-Robredo are unstoppable!
Per my reliable resource,
LP has the goods on Duterte during the time Duterte was mulling to join the race dor the presidency!
LP held it until the proper time: two weeks before the elections, for maximum impact!
It was the same for the Jacqueline Hamill, I wanna rape her first scandal!
On the BPI accounts, LP used the same channels they used to feed Trillanes during Binay’s Senate World Class Parking and Hacienda Binay investigations, thus the impact is shattering! Cayetano even accused Trillanes of being a Poe-tector thus indicating that the info was from NPC, but actually it was from LP. But Cayetano is partly correct since it was also sanctioned by LP Samar Faction who is supporting Poe for President and Escudero and Marcos for VP!
It boils down to two. Roxas or Poe!
para mo nang isinigaw ang dapat sanang sasabihin ni duts kay binay,
“ang ginawa mo sa makati, ginawa ko rin sa davao”
@chit, yung sinabi mo, bigla kong naalala,
“birds of the same feather”
sila pala ang dapat na magkasangga.
palagay ko kaya nilang ipamukha kay makoy via the son: “ang ginawa mo sa pinas, kaya rin naming gawin!”
Duterte must be S T O P P E D !
Si Duterte eh panay lang hambug!
Kapag nasusukol eh bumabaligtad at sinasabi nya palagi eh Joke Lang!
Yung Rape comment nya eh Joke Lang!
Noon pa man sinulat ko na rito na Kurap din si Duterte. See my posting Duterte is a legend in his own mind!, dated 11-25-2015.
Pero yung nauna nyang hamon sa lahat ng kandidato na Bank Waiver at ang yabang pa nya noon Marso na nag-issue silang dalawa ni Cayetano ng Ban Waiver eh ngayon umatras!
Si Trillanes eh tama lang at karapatan na eh-call yung bluff ni Duterte na wala si Duterteng itinatago kaya ang yabang ni Duterte na hamunin ang sinuman na imbestigahan ang kanyang mga bank accounts at tingnan kung sya ay may itinatagong yaman.
Eh etong huli at may nasilip at may nakita pang ebidensya si Trillanes na mga P211,000,000 na tagong yaman ni Duterte eh nenerbyos si Duterte at binabawi na ni Duterte ang waiver nya!
Please take note na ang AMLA ay may karapatan na imbestigahan pati mga pamilya ng Pulitiko dahil very common na ginagamit ang mga kapamilya sa tagong yaman. Eh may basbas pa si Duterte at naghamon pa, ayun kinagat ng ni Trillanes at AMLA, kaya ngayon eh namimilipit si Duterte sa hambug nya.
Dahil duwag si Duterte at pag nasusukol eh umaatras at iniiba ang istorya eh BAWIVER (@Parekoy: intended pun kasi matigas ang dila ni Duterte) na ngayon.
Kung titingnan natin may pattern talaga si Duterte, pag nasusukol eh parang bata na sabi eh Joke Lang, o di kaya mang-aaway, o di kaya ibahin ang istroya at kung ano-anong excuse, o di kaya patayan na lang daw!
Dito ri sa CPM tulad ni @Rene Ipil, eh namimilipit na ang dila at ginagaya na ang mga palusot ni Duterte. Kaya nga natutuwa ako dahil andito si @Rene Ipil para malaman ng mga CPM readers and isang halimbawa ng mga nagoyo ni Duterte at kung papano nila idepensa ang indefensible through nonsense!
Kung dati kayong Duterte supporters at nalaman nyo na ginugudtaym lang pala kayo ni Duterte eh kung may BAWIVER si Duterte eh kung meron pang natitirang kahihiyan kayo sa sarili nyo eh pwede nyong ibalik kay Duterte ang pang-gugudtaym nya sa inyo, kaya pwede rin nyong sabihin na BAWI-Suporta namin kay Duterte!
Duterte must be S T O P P E D !
Otherwise, the Joke is on the Filipino People!
Timely to repost…
Duterte is a legend in his own mind!
I will do this by replying to Mon Tulfo’s propaganda piece for Duterte, ‘Am I campaigning for Duterte?’, which was posted by Rene Ipil in #51.
Duterte will bring into the presidential race a proven track record as mayor of one of the world’s safest cities.
Parekoy: Safe yes. Safest in the world because of ambiguous survey results dominated by Filipino participants? Naaah!
Every Davao City resident follows the law and city ordinances to the letter.
Parekoy: ‘Every’ is an exaggeration! My friends (Fil-Chinese) who are close to Duterte keep on violating the city ordinances and even the speed limit and they get away with it dahil malakas sila kay Duterte. Also Davao City has criminals and the record shows that they exist but less compared to other cities.
Davao City is the only place in the Philippines where residents don’t use firecrackers during the New Year’s Eve revelry because they believe Duterte when he told them that the terrorists could take advantage of the noise to explode bombs or shoot innocent people.
Parekoy: Petty. Take advantage of the noise to explode bombs or shoot innocent people?’ Wow it is a stretch for terrorists don’t give a shit to hide behind the noise for if they wanted to kill no amount of silence can stop them. Propaganda and pogi points, but for the gullible ones may work!
All drivers in the city observe the speed limit of 60 kilometers per hour on the highway and 40 kph in the city proper.
Parekoy: All drivers? Nope. I visited Davao City and my friend who is a friend of Duterte drove faster than 60kph and even saluted by the traffic officer!
It is the only city in the country (and perhaps in the world) where criminals fear to tread.
Parekoy: Petty criminals are not welcome for sure but the heavyweights, like the Ampatuans, even have residences there and enjoy the protection of Duterte. NPA commanders even have safe houses there that and the Military can’t touch them for they don’t want Duterte to be offended.
Drug traffickers, pushers, killers, robbers, burglars and rapists have left Davao City a long time ago after the lowlife disappeared without a trace or were found dead on deserted streets.
Parekoy: This I agree that most of these petty criminals left. But still there are 4,252 theft and robbery cases from January to August 2015. There are 1,052 cases for Drugs. Even Abu Sayyaf used Davao City as their safe haven and sometimes hide their victims there.
Abusive policemen are never heard of in the city. Some cops from out of town who came to the city and abused civilians regretted their misdeed—or never lived to regret it.
Parekoy: Abusive to whom? It is a mix. Some are good but some are really brutal. The brutal ones are Duterte’s goons who made a lot of petty criminals disappear. Abusive seems too mild as an adjective to describe Duterte’s death squad composed of Policemen and Military goons.
If you’re a night person who wants to drink till the wee hours of the morning, Davao City is not for you because bars and nightclubs close at 11 p.m. Tourists and residents who want to drink until dawn take a ferry to nearby Samal island.
Parekoy: Seems even restrictive compared to some Muslim Country like Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur even has a more liberal city ordinance when it comes to entertainment hours. Big bully brother is really controlling!
Residents obey the law and city ordinances—like the ban on smoking in public places — because they know their mayor and his subordinates are incorruptible.
Parekoy: I am for the ban on smoking on public places and this is so common in the US. But saying that ‘they know their mayor and his subordinates are incorruptible’, is a complete horseshit! Don’t you know why Duterte ran for Vice Mayor and his daughter Mayor? It is for complete control of the city and the city council is also headed by the Vice Mayor. Complete control of City Hall means COA will have a hard time digging Digong’s corruption! Duterte is similar to Binay in this regard. Duterte has complete control of Davao City for more than two decades and where did he get his wealth?
An owner of a nationwide retail store chain told me how his application for a business permit breezed through the process without paying a single centavo in bribes to City Hall. That’s the reason many businesses are scrambling to set up their main office in Davao City.
Parekoy: Robredo did it in Naga City for that is what our LGUs are mandated to do but seldom followed. I will give a thumbs-up to Duterte on this regard.
One other thing: Duterte—Digong to his constituents—goes around the city incognito on a big bike or a taxicab to see if policemen are patrolling the streets.
Parekoy: Propaganda. The truth is Digong goes incognito to go to one of his ‘Chichings’ he housed in his city.
He is also on the prowl for criminals he wants to catch in the act.
Parekoy: Propaganda. Digong is a coward. He makes sure that the petty criminal is caught first by his goons then his goon calls him and for media mileage he shows how tough he is kuno by slapping the petty criminal when the tipped media is present. Sarah Duterte learned from her father in abusing people in front of the public for they know that the poor guy can’t fight back who is scared shitless surrounded by Digong’s death squad.
His sterling leadership in Davao City will be replicated in the entire country—if he is elected President.
Parekoy: Replicated? More death squads to eradicate petty criminals but coddle bigtime drug lords, smuggling lords, plunderers, oligopolists, etc…
Now am I unashamedly campaigning for Duterte?
Parekoy: Mon, naiintindihan namin ang side mo. Trabaho lang yan. Kilala ka na ng karamihan sa Pilipinas na sa tamang presyo eh magsusulat ka ng pabor o di kaya laban sa isang tao. Ikaw ang nagpa-uso ng AC/DC-Attack Collect/Defend Collect! Kumusta nga raw pala abi ni Claudine…
You bet I am.
Parekoy: I bet you will lose!
Mon, Kumusta nga raw pala sabi ni Claudine…
another call, sa lahat ng cpmers.
mag ro-ro na tayong lahat dito.
walang mawawala sa inyo. ang kakabig ay ang bansa.
panalo tayo sa ro-ro.
marangal at sinsero. may integridad.
sabagay, parang wala ng boboto sa atin kay mds.
kay binay, parang wala na rin.
kay poe, isa na lang, a dalawa pa pala. pero pwede pa ring lumipat kay mar.
kay duts, malamang ay bawiin na rin ang supota.
hindi reliable si duts.
hilig magturo ng bayot sa iba.
nakita naman nating lahat, hindi bayot si mar.
si mar na lang talaga ang pinaka sensible na choice.
tama, magroro tayo. hwag iboto ang atras-abanteng si duterte. galit si duterte kay binay at ipakukulong daw, pero, if the shoe is in the other foot, demure kaagad si duterte.
dapat, friendly si duterte kay binay, dahil pareho pala silang kawatan, kurakot at mapanlinlang.
magroro tayo, best team for the country.
Readers realized that the majority of Roxas-Robredo supporters here in CPM are not flip-floppers and not influence by manufactured surveys, nor betting on a current popular candidate!
We set ourselves apart by being principled and never surrender our common sense and belief for who is good and right for our beloved country!
Roxas-Robredo to victory!
Marcos must be S T O P P E D too!</b
We elected comedians in the Senate, like Sotto, but a plunderer who wants to be a comedian is unheard of, until now…
No wonder Marcos’ and Duterte’s avid supporters are alike! Their candidates love sick joke!
in short, payamanan sina bong marcos at duterte, mas marami yata ang liquid assets ni duterte, all at his disposal and within arm’s reach.
with bong, he still has to share billions with sisters, imee and irene, but mother imelda holds the lion share. if only imelda will die, bong will get extra billions. bong’s billions are held in other countries subject to rules there, but with duterte, his assets are already here held in our banks, ready for him, if needed.
I’m pauper compared to other pols, sabi ni bong marcos. and the politician he is seen happiest most is duterte.
Kung pauper si Marcos, ano na ang ordinaryong mahirap na Pilipino?
ahem, something tells me that bong marcos has prophesied his own demise. after election on may 9, 2016, bong will feel pauper and poorest of the poor. electorate will desert him. of what use is money when true fame and glory (not the shallow fame and even shallower glory brought about by paid surveys) his mother hankered so much cannot be bought by money? after election, bong will be pauperized in spirit. humbled and beaten, he may even crawl next to apo bangkay and lay down in the glass case with him. dust to dust.
Don’t be surprised if you’ll see more bank account leaks of Duterte. The business community was not impressed with Duterte when he faced MBC. An impending Duterte Presidency has seen the Philippine stocks dipping and the Peso depreciating in a span of a short period. We’ve also seen outflows of foreign funds. We will see a similar Jose Velarde account scenario which brought down Joseph Estrada. If it is too late to change the minds of the electorate , it is therefore important to ensure a Leni Robredo win and an LP majority in the Senate. I am seeing a potential impeachment case against Duterte. A Bongbong Marcos win will be an additional disaster. God help our country.
with god’s blessing, we’ll help our own country. duterte shall not rule as president. we’ll deny him the vote.
roro for may 9, 2016 elections.
The evidence is authentic!
Duterte should be a Houdini to be able to unshackle this latest scandal!
Duterte says one thing and does another
A) Davao employs thousands of contractuals over the years
B) Contractualization must be stopped
Duterte vows contractualization. Guess what, he had thousands of them for many years.
COA questions Duterte’s 11,000 contractual workers
The thousands of contractual workers hired in 2014 were all assigned to the the office of the Davao City mayor, and cost the local government P708 million
Published 9:14 PM, June 16, 2015
Updated 10:05 PM, June 16, 2015
MANILA, Philippines – State auditors are questioning Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s hiring of 11,246 contractual workers in 2014, which cost the city government P708 million.
Doubting the necessity and regularity of 4,754 job orders – all for the city mayor’s office – the Commission on Audit (COA) pointed out that Davao’s lack of clear policy in hiring people fosters patronage.
“The city has no written policy or manual on the hiring of employees particularly under contract of services and job orders. Identification of persons to be hired for such nature rests directly upon the recommendation of the department heads and other officials of the city,” COA noted.
Auditors found that of the 14,499 person on the city government’s payroll, only 3,253 hold regular positions. They get their salaries from the city’s personal services budget.
The 6,081 contractual employees and 5,165 job orders were paid from the maintenance and other operating expenses budget.
COA was also concerned that there were no documents to prove that the non-regulars were actually rendering work. Those assigned to Barangay Cultural Communities and Affairs Division, the city councilors’ offices, and those reporting to barangay chairpersons didn’t have daily time records or attendance logs when doing filed work. Their functions and duties were not specified in their contracts.
“These conditions cast doubt that entries in the daily time record of these employees…are manipulated, thus regularity and validity of the related expenditures could not be ascertained,” the COA report said.
Auditors also noted that some of the contractual employees had been working in the city government for more than a decade, but had not been offered regular posts.
In response to the COA report, Davao City’s Human Resource Management Office said it will formulate a set of guidelines for the hiring of contractual and job order personnel. – Rappler.com
Anyare? Did COA file charges against Duterte? Or were they satisfied with Duterte’s explanation? Please research pa more for our enlightenment.
ENDO refers exclusively to employment in private entities which violates labor laws. Casuals and contractual employees are allowed in government.
There is a process being undertaken in every investigation. Let’s see what happens. Alam mo naman iyon, Rene. Me right of reply pa si Mayor dito, di ba?
What is being observed by Maxima is why the contradiction in what he’s saying to what he has done in Davao.
Example: He said he will stop contractualization.
Contradiction; He has a lot of contractual employees at his office without clear details of what they are doing in that office in the first place.
Even if it’s allowed, it should be clear what they were hired for and a very clear and concise documentation of their time spent with the Office of the Davao Mayor’s office.
In private enterprises the owner or manager has the authority to make a contractual employee permanent.
In the government there is a plantilla for permanent employees governed by civil service rules. If the plantilla has been filled up, the head of agency has authority to hire casual or contractual employees subject to civil service rules. The head of agency cannot make them permanent employees if there are no vacancies in the plantilla.
I read somewhere that the contractual employees were hired to collect garbage, sweep streets, etc.
Ancient Mariner says
@Rene. I think you are over simplifying the point. Duterte should practice what he preaches no matter what the civil code might say. At the moment you are justifying his usual stand, “Don’t do as I do. Do as I say.”
The death sentence is available to judges in many countries but its use is not mandatory. The same commonsense surely applies to contractual employees.
In my opinion there is no justification for large conglomerates, fast food chains and government departments employing people without giving them a decent wage, security of employment and all health and other benefits.
What I said is I believe the reality in most, if not all, government units – LGU, GOCC and national government units. But I stand corrected.
Rene, is this, in your opinion, in accordance with civil service rules?
As you said, If the plantilla has been filled up, the head of agency has authority to hire casual or contractual employees SUBJECT to civil service rules.
Was the doubt of COA about DTRs validated? DTRs are made to collect salaries. Non-submission of DTRs is a violation of CSRules. But I do understand that one practice is for the employee assigned in the field and some offices to fill up the DTR manually and have it signed or approved by the supervisor.
As to the specification of functions and duties, the contract or appointment paper merely states the position like, garbage collector. But in the authority to hire garbage collectors issued by proper entity the functions and duties are specified. Of course the appointees are oriented first as to their job.
rene-ipil is in cahoot with dirtydu when comes to contractualization. if binay has ebeng baloloy, duterte has rene-ipil.
EVERYBODY IS BUSY DISCUSSING ON PRESIDENTIABLES BUT FORGETS THAT THE MONEYED BONGBONG MARCOS HAS A BIG CHANCE OF WINNING THE VP RACE.
A vote for marcos is a vote for imelda who, while campaigning in Tacloban recently, said “If you vote Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos jr., you will make this country great again” http://bit.ly/1T7BXYm
In a Philstar column titled “Imelda R. Marcos – The Verdict,” the columnist asked “Should Bongbong Marcos be elected as vice president of the Philippines?”
“If we are to change our country for the better we have to begin a new slate. A marcos should have no place in it. He may not have committed the gargantuan robbery of the national treasure in their time but he remains a symbol of that political system that we must eradicate.
“Imelda personified politicians who use their power to enrich themselves and get away with it. The Aquino government is a mere continuation of that corruption. We still have not recovered the stolen booty. Here is an extract of one of my sources.
“This was written by Roger Wolmuth of People Magazine on April 7, 1986. The Imelda Marcos Shopping Guide: A cache n Carry Way to spend the Fortunes of a Nation.
“On one of her European junkets some years back, Imelda Marcos made a terrible discovery just after her plane left Rome. No cheese. Not a nibble’s worth anywhere on the plane. But no problem, at least for the high-flying First Lady of the Philippines. Imelda simply ordered the jet back to Rome, where the oversight was corrected.
“During shopping trips to New York she stayed at a government-owned six-story townhouse adorned with Van Goghs, Picassos and other masters and with its own mirrored disco, or at the regal Waldorf Towers, where she tipped bellboys $100 and kept a standing order for $1000 in fresh flowers daily. On jaunts to Rome, she lived at the elegant Hotel Excelsior on the Via Veneto just a short limousine ride from the shops she loved to patronize or in a $1,437-per-day royal suite at the luxurious Grand. Besides the usual bodyguards, her retinue (which, depending on the trip, required up to 25 more rooms) invariably included a maid whose sole duty was caring for imelda’s jewelry.
“After socializing – often with such longtime pals as Cristina Ford, Luciana Pignatelli Avedon or actor George Hamilton – imelda would resume her journeys in a private twin-engine plane complete with built-in shower and gold bathroom fixtures. Once, after a dinner party in Rome, imelda invited her companions back to her Excelsior suite for drinks. As she showed off some of her gowns, a friend said, “Madame, why don’t you show us what you wear with them?” Happy to oblige, imelda hauled out two large cases: one, covered in black crocodile, was filled with jewelry in a series of drawers, each color-coded by stones (emeralds, rubies, sapphires, diamonds) The other is crammed with US greenbacks.”
NO NO NO TO BONGBONG MARCOS – NEVER AGAIN
Pasintabi po sa mga katoto…
Sasaglit lang…mula sa nakapanghihinang subali’t nakalulugod na kampaniya…
The barbers are slowly but surely cutting away votes from Cayetano and Escudero…though Marcos die-hards are still ‘tough nuts to crack.’
ROBREDO will win…
John Ridsdel. . . Rest In Peace John. Condolence to his Family and Friends.
When will our AFP and other government forces extinguish the Abu Sayaff group?
Hostages to end up suffering and/or killed this way in our country is a deep shame.
When AFP? Who will be the next President who can effectively crush bandit groups in Mindanao and in other parts of our country?
Peace and Order is one of the effects of big and small CORRUPTION in any form.
. . . Amen.
