I’m posting today my first video blog.
I decided to do a vlog because I realized that this is the best way to show you what I meant.
Resibo, in other words.
While the enthusiasm for commemorating the 1986 Edsa People Power revolution has understandably waned, the onus lies with every government to make such celebrations meaningful.
In the case of President Rodrigo Duterte’s government, the celebration last Sunday February 25 was radically different from ALL OTHER PREVIOUS CELEBRATIONS.
To understand what I mean, please watch my vlog.
P.S. Since I am new in making videos, I would be glad to receive your comments on how to improve them.
Can this Quo Warranto action
by SolGen be legally appropriate vs
CJ Sereno before the High Court?
Action filed very lately.
Does SC have jurisdiction on such
action vis a vis with the
pending and soon to be filed by
LH of Congress before the Senate?
Isn’t the SolGen’s action a duplication
of an impeachment proceeding?
Why is the Admi now resorting to this
form of duplicating the pending removal
action by the LH of Congress? Not sure
the impeachment and conviction of CJ
Sereno by Senate can be had?
So many questions that the people want
to ask. Let us ask the following:
1. Does SC have jurisdiction on the
The rules on Quo Warranto refers
to election contests before the COMELEC,
or regional trial courts or municipal trial
court by any candidate or by a VOTER.
Is the SolGen in behalf of the Gov’t a voter?
2. Is it still within the prescription period?
3. ‘[A] detailed specification of the acts or omissions complained of showing the electoral frauds, anomalies or irregularities in the protested precincts.’ [sub-sec. f of Sec 11, SC Supreme Court Administrative Order No. 07-4-15 – Rule 2 Posted: 27 October 2015]
3.a. Must be verified by any
petitioner to comply: ‘the affiant has read the petition and that the allegations therein are true and correct of affiant’s own knowledge or based on authentic records. A verification based on “information and belief” or upon the “knowledge, information and belief” is not a sufficient verification. ‘
3.b. Can the ‘authentic records’ that will be
used by SolGen be sufficient which are still
subject to findings and resolution by the
4. Will the SC dismiss the pet. for Quo
Warranto because it is pre-empting the
LH of Congress and the Senate on its duties?
Again, does SC have a good reason that the SolGen’s action
is a duplication of an impeachment proceeding?
Sec. Roque says it is unprecedented. Meaning what?
Good or bad, or not feasible for anything at all
under our present judicial system rules and laws?
Assuming, just for the sake of having
the action for the SC, LH and/or the Senate
will be working side-by-side with the Court
on the very the same issues, same party
and same removal actions to be secured.
Who between the organs of these
Institutions will be ahead or late in
time to resolve the issues?
Festinare! Primus rem exitus.
. . . Hurry up! Be the first to decide the
SC Administrative order
The Supreme Court will tackle today, Tuesday March 6, in en banc session the petition for quo warranto filed by the Solicitor General against the beleaguered CJ Maria Lourdes Sereno for her appointment to be considered void from the beginning because of her failure to meet the requirements, such as submission of all SALNs
After a raffle, the case went to AJ Noel Tijam, the ponente tasked to study the case and make recommendations. Tijam is the second appointee of PRRD to the SC
Sereno’s lawyer-spokespersons argued before media that there is only one option to oust an impeachable officer and that is through impeachment. SolGen Calida said they are horribly wrong. A lawyer who has a basic grasp of our Constitution and jurisprudence ought to know that Impeachment and Quo Warranto are two entirely different proceedings with entirely different grounds for filing
Under Rule 66 of the Rules of Court, a quo warranto proceedings is an action by the government against a person who unlawfully holds a public office or holds a position where he or she is not qualified
ABANGAN ANG SUSUNOD NA KABANATA
As expected, the High Court this morning has ordered CJ Sereno to answer the SolGen petition seeking to void her appointment as it junked another petition that also sought to remove her from office.
Sereno was given 10 days to comment on the OSG’s petition for “quo warranto,” which alleged that she is “unlawfully holding” her post due to her supposed failure to fully disclose her wealth.
“The court, without giving due course to the petition, requires the respondent to submit her comment on the petition for ‘quo warranto’ within a period of 10 days from receipt of notice,” said SC spokesperson Theodore Te.
Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen thinks an outright dismissal should be the decision on the quo warranto petition filed by Solicitor General Jose Calida in a bid to shortcut the ouster of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.
tama yata si leonen dahil nag-lapse na ang statute of limitation. dapat within one year pa lang of sereno’s appt quo warranto was put in motion and activated, two years on ay medyo huli na yan. it does not pay for calida to be sleeping on the job, he, he, he, solgen pa naman siya. he’s fast turning to be male counterpart ni acosta, the vax scaremongerer. if calida is only bluffing with quo warranto, and if the justices of the supreme court are bluffing with him, sereno could well pull through the bluff.
somehow ang mga justices sa supreme court are not much different from mga tendera’t tendero sa palengke, nagtatanin rin ng puot, the justices deep into playing oddball politics, eager to please and ply for the sitting president. mali pala ako to think, these justices are capable of independent thinking, independent sila sa executive, independent din sa legislative, turns out dependent sila kaayo these judicial barnacles.

Raissa, maybe you could spearhead/ investigate LTO affecting Filipinos with DRIVER License.
LTO personnel are charging drivers now for DRIVING CARS WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. Most vehicles sold now have automatic transmissions unlike years ago.
NON PRO DRIVERS LICENSE HAVE RESTRICTIONS IN THE CARD. Look at your restriction in your driver license. # 4 Restrictions in the back refers to “Automatic Clutch up to 4500 kg vehicles which means drivers can
drive this car if #4 is printed on the Restriction section on the front side of the License.
Most Non Pro Licenses have Restriction code#2 WITOUT #4 code which means the Driver CANNOT drive automatic clutch vehicles.
LTO personnel are now stopping cars to check driver license entrapping drivers to BRIBE them.
LTO people are deceitful so they could EXTORT unsuspecting drivers.
LOOK AT YOUR LICENSE NOW AND SEE WHAT I MEAN!
Welcome back, Johnny Lin.
You are right Mr. Johnny,
but the ‘Restrictions’ says
for Non-Professional drivers’
During the application process, the applicant will be assessed for certain conditions that would deem the driver capable of operating a vehicle safely.”
The LTO ‘Procedures’ for Non-Professional
drivers also state for ‘assessment’ purposes
. . . ‘No. 4. Go to the cashier to pay the application fee.’
Pay the fee.
So, LTO cannot, without allowing
Non-Pro drivers to PAY the fee,
impose immediately drastic
action or suspend the driver’s
license. It was the fault of the
LTO Agency that it did not
verify from applicant WHAT
kind of vehicle to be driven
LTO should know its rules on
the CODES for driving vehicles.
Unwarranted actions will be
an abuse of its own mistake
Just be assessed ANEW and
pay an additional amount
as a fee for automatic vehicles.
Drivers will be
Thanks Johnny. I’ve been driving an automatic vehicle since 2004 but my license restrictions are 123 only – meaning I’ve been driving illegally hehe
Johnny Lin says
RESTRICTION #2 in Driver license states-“vehicles up to 4500 kg- meaning any vehicle with manual or automatic transmission
Restriction code#4 states-“automatic clutch vehicle up to 4500kg”
Since restrictiob#2 does not mention the kind of transmission used, it should automatically cover restriction cose#4 but LTO enforcers see it as a way to EXTORT money from drivers.
The Restrictions were formulated decades ago when almost all vehicles sold in the Philippines have Manual transmission. Now that most vehicles have automatic clutch, LTO should have decided on its own that Non Pro license restriction should be #2 and #4 automatically since the skill of the driver remains basically the same.
Corrupt LTO men are very creative to EXTORT money
He he he
EDSA colors are
Red, white & blue,
China red is true.
To hear all China white lies,
then all East oceans are
Red, white and blue, when Marcos
And now Diggong gets his jetskue skiing
to and fro,
Whoever made EDSA colors red, white and blue,
Boiing-boiing is the clue.
cornyism in mature puit-ri
all bright under the golden sun, the yellow sun, blazing in glory up in the sky!
thanks for the memory. people were brave then with only prayers and flowers as weapon.
now, decades on and heroes gone, we can only commemorate edsa.
talk to us again, heroes from the grave!
Parekoy not posting for quite sometime is very uncharacteristic to one of the hard-hitting and prolific members of this site. This led me think that he ran afoul with some shadowy characters.
Where were the 13K EJK dead? I hope they were accounted for and had a decent burial. I saw some piled up in one funeral home.
I have some alerting questions what happened to them or were they really fed on the fish off the Manila Bay.
It would be interesting if CHR, ICC and Justice Sereno,( if she survives the ganging) would begin to investigate the dead’s trail,,,, :)
Who knows those structures in the shoals are now the labs for human organs?
those structures in the shoals, drug labs some of them, others could be facilities for producing weapons of mass destruction. china knows how to pollute the oceans, their own country already polluted and full of smog.

“Corrupt kleptocrats and international criminals make themselves rich in criminality and corruption,” he said. “Then at some point they need the legitimate world in order to protect and account for their stolen proceeds.”
here in pinas, we have amlac, anti money laundering agency, very much into propagation of ill gotten wealth. proceeds of crime and corruption so allowed to prosper, amlac’s racela is codler of money launderers, methink po.
Marmee Cruz says
When will this lunacy end?
end? it’s getting crazier by the day po, with many joining in the foray, please see johnny lin’s lto comment above about driver’s license. fools paradise na baga ang pinas ngayon!
as well, crime against young children and girls are on the increase, dishonored, raped and killed, maybe because the president is publicly poking fun of the genitalia of the female of the species, no holds barred na, no respect for females making them fair games for who follow the leader! bad president equals bad people, equals bad boys and rapists of young girls.
boys barely out of teens are raping young girls na, and the kapolisan are mostly interested in drugs, raids here and there, and as always, killing follows in their wake.
in pinas, morals has gone so low and it all starts at the top, the decay cascading down.
will the president please starts acting like a president and not like a fool, show some manners!
sorry Off topic
To fight ‘fake news’, gov’t plans to build nationwide information network system
They need not to look far… just look into their own mirror and in their own offices. The need not speed extra funds, in fact they would be able to save, in fact there is one that surely would save them 100k a month (excluding allowances yan ha?)
gustong i-legitimize ang fake news.
andanar with the unibrow, the ill-famed palace ‘pala iyot’ who appears to be always sleepy, who’d take him seriously? his nationwide information network is fake network most likely. pinagsabihan kasi yan ni grace poe, andanar’s communication team spreads fake news. and for andanar himself creating info network, aba, nag-knee jerk reaction lang yan, his paid trolls and bots must be biting him. give us more clout! give us more money! give us more playground! he, he, he.
remember the crazy old man said before that he will ride towards China to stop them. He was in a serious tone when he said that… but today, he said that was a joke. He was joking when he said let Phil be a province of China, and this is already taking place.
Again, he said in a serious tone that he will step down after his term, maybe he again is joking?
Back to EDSA… EDSA was not for the Liberal Party, but it was for democracy and it only happen to be represented by the color Yellow.
It’s saddening how all 3 branches are now in shambles. Walang kahihiyan ipakita in broad daylight ang self serving interests nila at the nation’s expense.
Appreciate your vlog. How about adding subtitles to reach a wider audience, too? Or for those “discreetly watching/reading news” while in a meeting? Hahaha.
DU30: PHILIPPINE WON INT’L RULING TERRITORY IS ACTUALLY CO OWNED BY CHINA
So Mr. President, it’s all out in the open? That you are in reality an agent of China?…oh wow….wala ba talagang kwenta sayo ang Pilipinas: lahat binabasura mo:
(yung ginawa ng Nanay mo supporting freedomand human rights eh kaletsehan pala kulang na lang duraan mo memory nya)
But then as China’s agent, congrats as China’s new hero!
