Tiangco bares pressure by Aquino allies in impeachment of Corona

By |


MANILA, Philippines–A congressman took the witness stand on Monday and exposed how allies of President Aquino in the House of Representatives allegedly used intimidation and undue influence to get the support for impeachment complaint of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Testifying before the Senate, sitting as an impeachment court, Navotas Representative Tobias Tiangco narrated how the administration tried to pressure the members of the House to support the impeachment case against then Ombudsman Merceditas Guitterez.

Tiangco cited for example a text message supposedly of Congressman Emelio “Jun Abaya, chairman of the House committee on appropriation, that circulated, saying that those who would vote no on the impeachment of Gutierrez would get a “zero” PDAF or priority development assistance fund.

And when he voted against the impeachment, Tiangco claimed that his requests for funds for his projects received no response from Malacanang.

He said he wrote Budget Secretary Florencio Abad twice—on May 30 and June 27, 2011– but received no reply from Abad.

So when he decided to come out with a press release on this alleged refusal by Malacanang to grant his request to release his PDAF, Abad allegedly sent him a text message on July 13, 2011.

Tiangco said Abad’s text was: “I read your PR re your PDAF . On my own, I can’t withhold any legislator’s PDAF. I suggest, you find a way to talk to Pnoy, the Speaker can help you along this line.”

Tiangco said Pnoy being referred to in the text was President Aquino while the Speaker refers to Speaker Feliciano Belmonte.

Senate president and presiding officer Juan Ponce Enrile then asked the defense lawyer, Dennis Manalo, about the relevance of the witness’s testimony in the ongoing trial of the Chief Justice.

“The witness is testifying as to the pressure that he received for the approval your honor of the impeachment complaint against Merceditas Gutierrez. We’re obviously proving that there’s a pattern, or a scheme or modus operandi with the majority in the House of Representatives to intimidate and exert due influence upon their other members to approve their measures such as this impeachment complaint filed against Chief Justice Corona,’ Manalo said.

Prosecution member and Ilocos Norte Representative Rodolfo Farinas objected to Manalo’s statement , saying the witness did not sign the complaint against Corona.

“This witness did not sign this complaint, your honor. So now he’s saying he was intimidated but he did not sign the complaint, “ said Farinas.

“So in the matter of the case against the Chief Justice, his testimony as to the Merceditas Gutierrez case has no relevance here,” he further said.

But Enrile allowed the defense lawyer’s statement,saying the Senate would give the defense team all the leeway to present its evidence.

    Manalo it was very clear that it was on the impeachment of MG not CG Corona…another hearsay from your end…ANOTHER LIE FACTORY…

    • araceli lorayes

      Congressman Tobias was testifying on his personal knowledge and referred to documents – House minutes, to support his points. Therefore it was not hearsay, and Senator Ponce Enrile, with something like 60 years experience as a lawyer, did not rule that it was hearsay. Maybe you have more experience as a lawyer than Senator Enrile, to justify your saying that it was hearsay.

      Di ba pati si Farinas di pumirma? siguro nga kasi di sya blind follower.

    • araceli lorayes

      Hindi siya ang nagmukhang tanga ng na cross-examine siya ni Farinas. Si Farinas ang nagmukhang tanga. Isang cardinal rule sa cross examination ay “Don’t ask questions whose answer you don’t know.” Tinanong niya kung may ibang congressmen na magsign na nagreklamo, at akala niya hindi maisasagot ni Tiangco. Kaso, sumagot si Tiangco na may masasama ang loob. So napahiya si Farinas. At sa re-direct examination ipanilawanag niya ha kahit na nakuha niya ang PDAF, may mga adverse consequences. Halimbawa ang dapat makatanggap ng scholarship ay hindi makapag-enroll.

      • jedawi

        hindi sinabi ni tiangco kung sino-sino yung mga scholars para i release ni abad ang pera gusto ni tiangco pera muna bago listahan ng scholars

      • filipinaskoh

        Hearsay nga ang sagot nya eh! Napakadaling sabihing ,MERON O KAYA MADAMI ang tanong sinu-sno sila. 

        His pork barrel was delayed 3 mos only, kung may scholar sya he can send a promissory note sa school, congressman sya hindi nya alam iyon. anong uri sya na congressman, simpleng bagay hindi nya kayang solusyunin, ang tanga-tanga naman nya. Kung ung ngang mga  hindi Congressman naipapasok sa scholo ang mga anak sa pakiusapan lang atsaka na ang bayad pumupwede eh. 
         kaya 2 question lang ang ginawa ni farinas kasi ang daling i-refute ang sinabi nya.

    • FernandoBusi

      actually dapat nga di si farinas nag cross examine di din yan pumirma eh … si 3-take tupas nalang since sya naman point man ni pnoy dyan.

    • merciless_dude

      Well, if you read his tweets last 2011, he is really doing his job as a legislator. At consistent ang mga sinabi niya doon sa mga statement niya kanina. Yung 2011 budget hindi niya pinirmahan dahil walang sapat na oras para basahin. 4 hours lang ang binigay e mahigit 1,000 pages yun. Pero naaprubahan agad sa kongreso. So I guess mas magaling talaga siya sa 188 congressman na tuta ni Noynoy

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_AR3F3RNQX4U3PKBI526NJI6BYM Jose

    Sa ngayon pa lamang lumilitaw na ang kulay ni Sen Enrile na kumikiling siya sa mga abogado ni Mr Corona ng ilang beses. Hindi lamang makapag reklamo ang mga miembro ng prosecutors dahil na rin sa laki ng kapangyarihan ni Mr Enrile bilang senate president at presiding judge ng impeachment trial. Hindi magtataka ang taong bayan kung sa bandang huli ay acquittal ang magiging desisyon ni Sen Enrile kasama na ang mga malalapit sa kanyang mga senador judges.

     Kawawang defense the horse had already bolted away. Merceditas Gutierrez is already a history and their witness was intimidated probably not to sign the impeachment of thief justice. Because if he was intimidated why is it that he did not sign the impeachment. What a useless human being who does not know what he is saying.

  • AbdullahZahir

    mali ng basa ang baboy ng iloilo sa paglalatag kay tiangco.

    hindi sa kinikwestyon nito ang impeachment per se. marahil ang gustong patunayan dito ay ang pattern nga ng kawalan ng tamang proseso sa pag beripika ng complaints dahil binraso nga.

    ayaw lang ni baboy na mapagtuunan ng pansin ito dahil utak sya sa ta eng kumakalat sa kongreso. 

    itong nagsasabing may brasohang nangyari sa kongreso ay sumagot lamang sa katanungan kung bakit palpak ang prosekusyon sa maraming bagay.

    ang sagot: dahil imbes na pag aralan ng sabay2 ang kaso, iilang pulpol na tauhan lamang ng LP ang nag doktor sa complaints at pinilit lang ipalunok sa mga mambabatas kapalit ng kanilang pakikpag alyansa sa malakanyang. at kung hindi, patis ang “pondo” mo.

  • EdgarEdgar

    The administration clearly picked on the wrong person to pressure and push around. Toby Tiangco may be metrosexual and looks like someone who spends a lot of time in front of a mirror. But he’s definitely not afraid to stand his ground and slug it out when push comes to shove. Despite all the pressure and harassment brought to bear by Noynoy upon him, Toby remains unruffled and undeterred. Now that’s what we call grace under pressure. Or simply, guts. Without a doubt, Toby’s made of sterner stuff.

      • EdgarEdgar

        When it comes to weightiness, no one can outweigh Drilon. When it comes to damaging testimony against Noynoy’s saintliness, that just happened this afternoon with Tiangco’s unequivocal account of how the administration pressured him with all sorts of dirty tactics even more immoral than Kris. We must also thank Enrile, who still has an axe to grind and would like to reveal the darker side of the Aquinos. Even Drilon could not stand anywhere close to Tiangco, or he would look too unsightly like a soiled pig beside a gentleman.

      it would be gutsier if he exposed this when all of his allegations were happening. what was he waiting for? in due time, perhaps. naah. this witness is not credible to me and his testimony has nothing to do with corona’s impeachment case, just like your comment about metrosexuals being weak and spineless.

        wrong again. the records, broadsheets, youtube will bear him out. he’s been talking since early 2011. too bad your tunnel vision confined you to yellow media all these years. or you probably stayed in the sticks too long like my friend farmerako. but if it makes you happy, stay with it by all means.

  • RomyLitz

    CUEVAS,
    The witness you presented today were the real things called irrelevant, impertinent and immaterial based on Jan 18 ruling of the IC. Sen.Enrile was just liberal and he knows the joy that the defense got today was only temporary. To the Prosecution Team, he gave bank documents, testimony of Basa relatives, Cristina and media blitz politician, Corona. Prosec Team has the TRUTH, the Defense Team have only dilatory and lies.

    Until now, the Defense Team gave a gray answer whether Corona will testify or not despite clear and unequivocal declaration of Sen. Enrile that only Corona can explain his side of the story. Why is the Defense wants Corona to stay away from the witness stand while Corona run uncensored and wild with his media blitz?

    • basyong

      why would you insist on corona testifying when the senate is contemplating in trashing this and send it back to the tongresmen who did it.railroading any impeachment case is not in the constitution and it is just right for the senate to send this defective case back to them.next time study their move first before initiating a stu pi d  use less case

  • Handiong

    The defense for today went PPFFTT! (just for emphasis).

    What a waste of time, a complete waste of time. We listened to the gripes of a congressman who in the end admitted that he received his pork. I don’t know if it’s only me, but Tiangco reminds me of Midas Marquez.

    Tiangco named Rep. Dodo Mandanas as another witness who is willing to repeat his pathetic performance before the impeachment court today. Is this a sorority affair? Mandanas is a celibate (that’s right, celibate, as in “no sex for me,please”) numerary of the Opus Dei.  Others are Dr. Bernie Villegas and Jesus Estanislao. By the way, Mandanas was a former right-hand man of Imelda Marcos.

    And when Sen. Enrile asked the defense if they were ready to present another witness, Cuevas said that they were not prepared. Yes, folks, you heard him right, the defense was not prepared, straight from the horse’s mouth. I thought they had everything lined up. Akala ko ararangkada ang depensa. Ito yung pinagyayabang ng mga alipores ni Corona dito, ah.

    The fact of the matter is that the defense has no evidence that’s why they want to do away with the whole impeachment proceedings.

    • billygunn23

      tip of the iceberg my friend. there is more to the testimony than a mere dilatory tactic. having allowed the testimony, it looks like the senate is set to overturn another previous ruling. this time they might reconsider the point raised by cuevas about the railroaded complaint. remember that this is shown live on tv and people believe what they see on tv. yeah it may be PFFFT but at the end of the day, there is an alarming expose which was allowed by the senate. obviously, there is reason for allowing that despite the repeated reminder by enrile that verification of the complaint is no longer an issue.

      • Handiong

        What Tobias said yesterday is old stuff. There’s nothing alarming or explosive about it. He already went public with it last December and yet the Senate accepted the impeachment complaint. Why would the Senate change its mind now just because Tobias repeated what he said last year?

    Admit it, hindi prepared ang defense. After almost 3 months from the time the impeachment complaint was brought to the Senate, the defense is not prepared? The best that they could do was present newspaper clippings as evidence? Their witness today practically testified on newspaper clippings.

  • loudwhale

    In a way it was a very slow start today maybe even uneventful but the defense was able to succeed in putting on record what went on in the railroading of the impeachment article. It was not bombastic but the truth is coming out on how things work in the Lower House & what happens to those who do not tow aquinos line.

  • Beguine

    Is this any great revelation made by Tobias Tiangco?

    He’s just bellyaching that he’s been left out of the party and the
    perks, he’s the odd man out.

    But did the majority of those who nagkakandarapa rushed in to sign
    the impeachment of Corona bother to worry that Tiangco was
    not able to sign?

    No. He wasn’t even needed. Not at all. There were in fact far too many who were
    willing to sign to impeach Corona.

    And now Tiangco is having the time of his life being proud that
    he did not sign? And yet he continues to gripe that he’s not
    getting the usual perks and privileges already given to many of
    those who signed?

    Of course he will be left out in the cold. But now he shows up a defender of Corona,
    and in effect saying Corona must not be impeached because he did
    not sign the impeachment paper?

    Could anything be more ridiculous? Corona’s defense team calls this
    defense? Is this the brilliant defense by Cuevas? Too silly for words,
    that’s what it is.

Was he helping shed light on the charges against the CJ or acting in furtherance of his PDAF, otherwise known as pork barrel? Scratch my back, scratch your back?

    Tiangco, actually, did not testify based on his personal knowledge. He was always asking permission to consult his kodigo supplied by the defense.

  • CourtEmployee

    I was once supporting for the acquittal of CJ Corona, but now things are now getting clearer by constantly observing and understanding the on going impeachment trial. My observations are the followings: mere suspicion on the part of CJ constitutes enough ground to impeach him as cited by our constitution and that a CJ is required the highest standard fitness in his position.Regardless of the defense’s turn to over-throw what’s presented, all evidence presented by the prosecutors are impossible to reverse. Plus the new revelation from the Bassa’s, no way can he escape that nor ignore those claims. Lastly, you can easily sense whether CJ is telling lies or not and even dragging the whole supreme court to hide justice where clear fact insists he is the one being impeached and not the supreme court. For the whole nation to move forward, he should be convicted and removed from office at once and time to reform the judiciary and strengthen our democracy.

      That is why the constituents who are being served by their congressmen should know that their congressmen has to “sell his soul to the devil” to be able to serve his constituents & get re elected. because that is the name of the game. You serve aquino first & the people are only second.

      • jurbinsky77

        loudwhale, There are congressmen who don’t even bother to get their alloted PDAF. They just negotiate a big project that would cost more than the PDAF inclusion into the Appropriations Bill. PDAF is released when the Congressman or the Senator has a pet project and submit a document like a feasibility study. At the completion of the project or when the fund has been used up, the Congressman or the Senator should another document that would show where the money was spent and the status of the project. Without this 2 requisite docs, the lawmaker should not expect that PDAF automatically falls from heaven.

    Corona’s latest offer:I’ll resign but I keep everything I have
    Posted: 11 Mar 2012 08:02 AM PDT by Ellen TordesillasAt the start of the impeachmenttrial, Corona said he will not give Aquino the pleasure of his resignation. 
    That was before Enriqueta Vidal, theSC clerk of court, turned over to the impeachment court the chief justice’sStatement of Assets, Liabilities and Networth.
    That was before documents of hisbank deposits submitted as evidence in the impeachment court showed hugeamounts that were not reported in his SALN.
    Reliable sources said even as Coronawas going on an offensive, he has asked another retired SC justice (notNachura) to relay a message to Malacañang that we might consider resigning if hewould be allowed to name his successor. Malacañang, we were told, said “Noway.”
    Corona’s latest offer, our sourcesaid, was he is willing to resign on condition that he keeps everything that hehas now.
    It’s still “No way” from Malacañang. Ano siya, sinuswerte?

    Whatever Tiangco said today did not disprove the fact that Corona lied on his SALNs; that he did not disclose properties and bank deposits.

    Clearly, the defense has no evidence to controvert the evidence of the prosecution, so they tried to nullify the impeachment complaint. If you cannot fight the cockroaches, burn down the entire house.

    Actually, the defense’s strategy is to present witnesses to convince, not the impeachment court, but the Supreme Court to stop the impeachment proceedings. They are actually litigating this impeachment case with the Supreme Court as their true audience because, lacking in evidence, their ultimate defense is the Supreme Court. But, Enrile warned them today that the impeachment court will defy the Supreme Court if it interfered with the impeachment court’s decisions.

  • maylah1969

    Defense failed to rebut evidence presented by prosecution in all three articles of impeachment against Corona. It is clear as the blue sky that the evidences are incontrovertible and collaborated by assessors and bank officials with personal knowledge of real estate and bank deposits, respectively,
    Its only a matter of time before Corona is convicted and ejected as CJ, an exalted position reserve only to a person fit to be a supreme magistrate of our nation.

    3. Tiangco still with the majority, was invited to the caucus. This incensed Rep. Biazon because of the fact that everybody (media outside andaya hall) seem to know what the caucus was all about except those who were invited. Tupas made a powerpoint presentation, Speaker stated that the articles of impeachment is not debatable.

      The land reform was conceptualized long before GMA, it was during Cong Dadong presidentcy.
      The land reform if all haciendas should be covered must include the Arroyo Hacienda in Negros Oriental, the Ledesma’s, Lobregat’s, Lacson’s, Yulo’s , Imperial’s, Chiongbian’s, etc.
      President Aquino is not asking the Chief Justice to do the valuation of the land. The valuation is with the DAR.
      You should travel back in time, you seem to love gloria Arroyo in those 9.5 years.when corruption was left and right and officials were no longer ashamed of discussing how much should received from the pie to the prejudice of the Filipino people.

    I’m 100% sure that out of the 188 prostitutes the script now is to come forward to say that their money has also been delayed because it is in their interest to obviously discredit Toby, but i guess the naive will never understand anything.
    the system is very dirty as it is. its just a question of who does it & who is in power.

    • http://fables.boxpinoy.com/ Lucky Luciano

      If that’s the case they should file for an impeachment case against Pnoy.

      And the defense should start inviting witnesses that will disprove the accusations against Corona instead of  Squid Tactic or Mudslinging. It’s not helping the very clean image Corona.

      yeah, in due time.

  • damatannapo

    Alisin po natin ang problema ni Tiangco sa kanyang PDAF

    Tuunan natin ang mga pambobola

    Sabi ni CJ ngayon lang nagreklamo ang mga Basa
    Ang totoo panahon pa ni FVR naglahad na ng pagsalungat ang mga Basa laban kay Corona
    nakaabot din ang pagtutol ng mga Basa kay GMA Nene Pimentel at sa JBC

    CJ nasira ang tiwala sa PS Bank
    Ang totoo mayroon paring account si CJ sa PS Bank at ang iba dollar pa nga

    Patalsikin ang CJ

    • RHumabon

      Ayun sa mga news articles, nag-reklamo ang Pamilya Basa (kasama na si Sr. Flory) sa mga ginawang illegal at imoral na aksyon nila Renato at Cristina Basa-Corona, sa panahon ni Pangolong FVR. Walang nangyari sa reklamo nla kci ginamit ni Corona ang kanyang pagiging Presidential Chief Legal Counsel.

      Ganon din sa panahon ni Pangolong GMA. Dinaan ni Corona sa palakasan. Sya bilang Presidential Chief of Staff, Justice at Chief Justice.

      Kung baga, “untouchable” si Renato at Cristina Corona mula noong panahon ni FVR (1992) hanggang sa patapos na panahon ni GMA (2010).   

      Ngayong 2012 na at panahon na ng Daang Matuwid, eh dapat mabigyan ng HUSTISYA ang Pamilya Basa.

    First Day Defense Evidence: Text messages, Scrapbook of news clippings, Opinion of Rep. Tiangco on probable cause and why probable cause against Mr. Corona was absent in the absence of PDAF.

    No one should be surprised if the next defense witness testifies on FaceBook postings and uploads in YouTube.

    Mr. Corona must have by this time communicated with Mr. Cuevas and kept on hearing “the number cannot be reached, please try your call later, the number cannot . . .”

    It only proved that Tianco was against the impleachment and nothig more.  He said he object because the articles were not properly understood. 

    How can he understood when he was not interested to listen; he himself said in his eagerness to show proof that the presentation lasted 1 hour and 40 minutes.  Reading the 8 articles will not even take 5 minutes.

    He said he don’t have a copy. He himself said that copies are being made and that the Speaker even pointed where he can obtain one, instead he leave even before the proceedings is finished and slept at his house.

     He said the complaint was not verified but he himself admitted that people are lining up to sign the complaint after the 1 hour and 40 minute presentation and these same people are huddled around and discussing the issue, and he just sit there and talk to about 3 people who are also against the impeachment.

    He said that congressmen were pressured to sign the impeachment articles and yet no one who signed come up, instead he is the one who did not sign because he is against it come up. Where is the pressure there?

    These declarations are not even made on cross examinations, these were made during leading questions by the defense, wwhaa!

    • indiosbravos2002

      Bottom line. It seems he came in to the session already so biased that anything discussed in the session will not interest him. He himself admitted that Belmonte made it clear that signing was voluntary. No congressmen were coerced or threatened. I dont see an issue there.

      Now, i think the real issue of Tiangco is moolah or Pork barrel. He wont get reelected if he doesnt bring in the cash to Navotas. This is his real grudge. No oink oink, no votes, no kick back. His little appearance in the senate did attract some attention to his plight. I am sure being a media hog, he seems to enjoy the media mileage plus the fact that he indirectly explained to his town mates why in the next year, money will be scarce for NAVOTAS. Not sure though if his constituents will be happy about this. Because if i were from Navotas, i surely would like to know why he f@cked up.

    • oracle888

       “These declarations are not even made on cross examinations, these were made during leading questions by the defense, wwhaa!”

      This is absolutely a good point. This is how the Corona Defense Team will be RAILROADING the presentation of witness, and how the Senate Impeachment judges are supporting them.

      All what Tiangco said are reflections of his personal perception of being pressured, his disgruntle of unable to obtain huge “ransom” money for his ghost projects, and his being hurt for unable to play an important role in the House’s impeachment process.

      So he choose to betray his party and sabotage the process just because of his selfishness without considering the benefits for all the Filipino people.

      Can we trust this kind of person?

      Absolutely no!

  • whammyy

    Pathetic.  Tiangco decided he wants to earn a living in a political environment and he refused to be politicised. 

    Dude, for you info and sanity’s sake, even in corporate settings anywhere in the world, there is also such things as the one you have encountered, ie, politics.  It IS perfectly normal.

  • oracle888

    A politician who  is disloyal to their political party but continue to be a member, is a person that can not be trusted. That politician for sure will have all “traitor” cells in his brain. Navotas congressman Tiangco should have dissociated himself from the party but remain in there for his personal reason, hoping to get a huge PDAF just like that in the fertilizer scam.

    Being disgruntled by not able to pressured Malacanang to receive huge PDAF, Navotas Congressman Tiangco has resorted to get revenge by not signing the House Impeachment complaint. But who need his signature when there are already 188 signatures, way way higher than the required number of votes to impeach CJ Corona? Tiangco then felt being ignored by his own party members, and decided to do anything to sabotage the complaint.

    Tiangco’s self serving interest had made him an untrustworthy witness in the trial. His real intention is clear….All about revenge for not able to get the “ransom” from the Administration.

    Tiangco’s testimony has no relevance to the defense evidence of explaining Corona’s SALN.
    Why did JPE allow it when he already denied the defense motion to nullify the impeachment charge of the house. He wasted everybody’s time.
    Jinggoy is right when he said that what the court and the general public want are testimonies related to SALN of Corona.
    This is delaying tactics of the Defense. I can smell backdoor negotiation, bribery and intimidation. FG and his cohorts will be busy. Money will change hands and it will be christmas in March, hehehe. Kaya siguro ayaw pang lumipad ni Brenda sa Hague…

    Ang daming satsat ng mga pro Corona bloggers eh BOPOLS DIN PALA ang ebidensiya nila. May pattern daw. Sana dapat may ebidensiya siya na mismo sa impeachment ni Corona may pressure na ginawa si Pnoy eh maski yung kay Guttierez napa ka VAGUE ng allegations of pressure. 

    Defense? Is that all you got? YOU SCORED ZERO THIS DAY. YOU ARE JUST WASTING THE TIME OF THE SENATE PRESENTING THIS IRRELEVANT WITNESS. 

    BOPOLS ANG DEPENSA!

    This testimony is irrelevant because – even if true – it won’t change
    anything about the guilt or innocence of Corona. Assuming the testimony
    is accurate, then the opposition should figure out which laws were
    violated, and file appropriate charges.

      It is almost impossible to remain in the fence, either you’re for or against him. In an impeachment process, the burden of innocence is only ASSUME and assigned to the accused public official. He or she must prove they’re not guilty. If pacman cannot show proof he is paying the correct amount of tax, he’s guilty.

  • merciless_dude

    Rep. Tiangco’s statement may not be directly relevant to the impeachment case of Corona, but it confirms that Aquino is not any different from GMA. Pareho lang silang ginamit ang pork barrel para kontrolin ang kongreso. Tuwid na daan ba talaga? At yung mga naiinip, hintay lang. Ganiyan din ang ginawa ng prosecution. Sinisimulan muna ang kwento para mabuo ito. Ilan lang ang witness ng depensa kaya pagbigyan na natin. At least ito, natapos ng isang araw ang isang witness

    Obvious naman that the impeachment case was railroaded. But it wouldn’t really matter since it’s already midway and there are stuff that CJ and defense team need to explain. Nice try though. Pretty brave but crazy move by Congressman Tiangco.

    • Handiong

      Actually, it’s a crazy move of the defense panel.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/JERRIXDILGTSWZ43WTHPAF4RF4 Rodger

    Tama kutob ko, the defense will find a way to raise and elevate Corona’s impeachment sa SC. Of course malaking chance nila dun. Despite JPE’s ruling today, di pa tapos yan, expect the resilience of Cuevas to find a way, but will still be in vain.

    Regarding Corona’s promise to reveal his dollar account, I’m guessing he will, but I can foresee the amount isn’t as big as we expected. Remember, siya at siya lang ang pwedeng mag authorise to reveal the dollar accounts. Malay ba natin kung isa or dalawang account lang na tig $700 ipakita nya, sabay bulaga sa IC? Reveal din yun di ba? Pero yung malaki di ipakita yun & I say wala dito, nasa ibang bansa. Kita nyo lagi siyang labas ng bansa. He’s smart and he thinks we’re dumb.

    Think about it: A higher rank public official with great influence tapos dito lang sa Pinas i-deposit malaking dollar account nya? Malabo. 

    • Handiong

      Pascual Garcia already confirmed that Corona has 5 dollar accounts. If he will open only one or two, the charge is still there that he is hiding something. He will not convince anybody of anything. It will only mean he is fooling the IC, and the senator-judges will not like it.

    • calipso_2100

  • oracle888

     Disregarding all legal bambo-jumbo technicalities (tools used by seasoned lawyers to let their client get away from the fury of justice), CJ Coroa’s dishonest and huge discrepancies in his sworn SALN, and his unexplained humongous cash money in the banks, both dollars and pesos, are SUFFICIENT AND STRONG ENOUGH TO CONVICT HIM.

    It is just as simple as that. It is not a criminal court. It is an impeachment court to ensure that the subject is unfit to continue hold his position, and shall be removed from the office for above violations.

    Mr. and Ms Senator-judges, how many evidences do you need to convince yourself to convict CJ Corona? Or is it that some of you are just waiting for a good reason in your own perception to acquit him or call it a mistrial? If it is the latter case, shame on you……

    Totally irrelevant ang mga pinagsasabi ni Tiangco.  Pinagbibigyan lang ang defense ni Enrile.  If Enrile were consistent, the more reason he should cut-off this irrelevant witness compared to the PAL-vp who was to testify about the benefits Corona got from PAL to show the reason why he favored PAL.  They are wasting our time.  This will boomerang against Enrile for allowing and tolerating this irrelevant witness because the people do not want the impeachment court to waste their time.

  • oracle888

    JP Enrile should have ruled that Congressman Tiongco’s testimony is merely HEARSAY when the latter used the term “pattern” & “pressure” to describe his colleague behaviors based on Mercedita Gutierrez case to insinuate that the same tactic is used in the passing of the House’s impeachment complaint against CJ Corona.

    A disgruntled person usually does not tell the truth. He usually twisted the fact for his own benefit because he has already a biased mind toward other who are not along with his line of thinking. He will consider the other as enemy and feel being suppressed – the “pressure” that he perceived in his shallow mind.

  • RJ

    What Tiangco testified were events long happened before the impeachment of CJ Corona and in no way was connected to this allegation that he was pressured into signing the impeachment case against the CJ. What we want to hear is that was there actual intimidation and pressure done to him days before or even during the caucus on the day the impeachment was signed by 188 congressmen. 
        His claim that his PDAF was not released due to his stand with the Merceditas case was not true as PDAFs are released in tranches as stipulated by Cong Farinas. That was why Tobias hesitated to say yes when Farinas posed the question of whether he later received his prok barrel or not. Had the prosecution asked further if he was the only Congressman who received his PDAF late. I am sure there are others who received at the same time Toby received his. So there is no abnormality on his claim.
        I thought, only the prosecution came to the court unprepared. It seem however that even the defense are not sure on how they will go about defending the respondent now that their turn on the floor has come. The way they started their defense, I believe they will take longer days to present their defense when compared with the prosecution.
        Further, this early, Cuevas’ statements and blatant showing of defiance on the impeachment court is an indication that the defense is laying the groundwork for the entry of the Supreme Court in the Impeachment battle.

  • joeldcndcn

    rep tiangco must be a naive and very ignorant lawmaker, the House impeached the thief justice corona according to rules & majority which allow them to pass immediately the “statement of impeachment” by a 188 votes very much over the requirement and was accepted by the senate; the objections of the cororna side was not accepted by the senate court, tsk, tsk, tsk, DRAMA, DRAMA AND MORE DRAMA BY THE CORRUPT CORONA WHO HAD BEEN GUILTY OG BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST & GRAFT AND CORRUPTIONS AS SEEN IN TV, THE  PEOPLE HAVE DECIDED AND NOT EVEN THE SUPPORT OF THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO CAN CHANGE THE GUILT OF THE CORRUPT CORONA, HA, HA, HA!

    anti-corruption daw siya, sabi ni Pnoy,
    eh sya rin pala ang pasimuno ng corruption sa congress.

    kahit matanggal si CJ, hindi pa rin magbabago ang sistema ng corruption sa pinas.
    walang kwenta ang impeachment na ito.

  • Fulpol

    maliwanag sa statement ni Tiangco kung ano ang sistema sa pag-file ng impeachment para makakuha ng 1/3 vote for impeaching a public official…

    numero uno diyan ang intimidation by pork barrel…

    ang labanan sa impeachment sa congress ay hindi numbers kundi intimidation by pork barrel.. kung tuwid na daan si Noynoy, ang challenge sa kanya, tanggalin niya ang pork barrel sa congreso… isang panuhol at isang panakot ang pork barrel.. isang tyrannical practice..

    ” But Enrile allowed the defense lawyer’s statement,saying the Senate
    would give the defense team all the leeway to present its evidence.” What gives? Did JPE give the prosecutions all the leeway to present their evidence? What happened to the PAL executive who wanted to testify? This might confirm my suspicion of your being biased.
    And this kumag Tiangco…is he new in politics? Parang batang nagsusumbong ng hindi mabigyan ng candy….oxymoron!!!!

  • Fulpol

    But Enrile allowed the defense lawyer’s statement,saying the Senate would give the defense team all the leeway to present its evidence.

    tama si Enrile kasi nasa defensive side ang defense…. at ang prosecution, nagbabase lang si Enrile kung ano ang ibinigay nilang articles of impeachment..

    may angal ba si Topax? wala… ang angal lang niya ay dapat bigyan sila ng listahan ng presentation of evidence..

    Tagal na po mula kay FVR GMA Nene Pimentel at JBS naglahad na po ng pagsalungat ang mga Basa laban sa mga appointment ni Corona sa Sup[reme Court

    Sabi ni Corona sira na ang tiwala niya sa PS Bank
    Pero hanggang ngayon may account pa rin sya sa PS Bank at ang iba nga dollar 

    Sabi ni Corona boung tapang niyang haharapin dahil nasa sa panig sya ng katotohanan
    Pero bawat bitiw niya ng salita ay gumagamit sya ng conjunction na ” BUT”
    but it is up to my defense lawyers o dili kaya ay if my defense lawyer will….

    Sabi ni Corona walang kinalaman ang mga Basa sa kaso niyang Impeachment
    Bakit po ginagamit ni Corona ang BGEI para depensahan ang SALN niya?

    Patalsikin ang CJ natin!!

  • Fulpol

    sa US, may two party, Republican at Democrat.. ang pagboto nila ay usualy base sa party affiliation..

    kung mas maraming Republican sa Congreso, malaking chance ma-impeach ang isang public official na member ng Democrat.

    pero kung mas marami ang Democrat sa Senado, malaking chance na ma-acquit.. dahil sa pagboto ay base sa party affiliation..

    pero..
    pero..
    pero sa Pilipinas…

    ang pagboto sa impeachment ay dahil sa pressure at intimidation sa pamamagitan ng pork barrel.. ang duming kalakaran.. nakakahiya sa isang nag-claimed na democratic ang bansang Pilipinas…

      Ang pinagtataka ko lang Fulpol, gaano ba kalaki ang impact sa Lawmaking capabilities ng isang lawmaker ang pork barrel.

      Lawmakers are there to create and enact laws that will help improve lives.

      Sa nangyayari ngayon kapag hindi mo kayang gumawa ng batas, due to incompetence or whatever reasons, ay gawa ka nalang ng basketball courts.

      kaya madaming nakokontrol ang utak pag dating sa pork barrel, kasi karamihan are incompetent when it comes to good governance and creating/improving laws.

      oohh phleasse don’t dare compare american politics with the philippines’. and if you do, please ascertain your inference first. american politics as well as our judiciary has had it’s worst days but never was a top man as a chief justice holding on to his sphere as obscene as your renato corona. a mere presumption of iniquity even in our lowest courts would compel even a lowly superior court judge to vacate his chair.

      your chief justice is so feeble he’s a full supplant of the famed wily philippine justice system.

  • RJ

    Mr. Foolpol, noong panahon ni GMA, ginagamit niya ang pork barrel para ipikit ng mga Congressmen ang kanilang mga mata sa mga ginagawang milagro ng gobyerno kaya tuloy naubos pera ng Bangko Central, PAGCOR, National Treasury, BFAD, Agriculture, OFW Funds, SSS, GSIS, Intelligence Fund, AFP, PNP, PSC, Bureau of Customs, at iba pa.
       Nung napalitan ng bagong gobyerno, hindi irerelease ang PDAF ng isang Congressman hanggat di siya naglalatag ng malinaw na paggagamitan o paglalaanang proyekto. At eto ay nirereview ng DBM. Pagkatapos marelease ng pondo, bibigyan sila ng sapat na panahon para tapusin ang sinubmit na proyekto. Pagkatapos nito pag nag liquidate sila, kailangan ng proof na tapos ang proyekto at hindi ginamit ang pondo sa ibang hindi nakassad sa reuqest nila ng pondo.  May katumbas na ngayon na parusa pag di nila ma account ang pondo nila.
        Alin sa dalawang pamamaraan ng pag gamit ng PDAF ang gusto mong tularan?

Mas relevant pa sana yung testimonya ng PAL executive pero hindi pinayagan ni Enrile. Kung may bearing yung pinagsasabi ni Tiyanakco, maghain siya ng impeachment case against PNoy. 

        What a hopeless case you are.

    CONG. TIANGCO’S PRIVILEGE SPEECH ON THE IMPEACHMENT OF CHIEF JUSTICE RENATO CORONA
    DECEMBER 13, 2011 
    HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
    Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question personal and collective privilege that involves the integrity and independence of the House of Representatives.Early morning of Sunday, 11 December 2011, I received word that there are moves to cause the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. I dismissed it as mere gossip.However, as the day went on, these rumors became louder. Worse, quite disturbing since rumor now has it that the entire impeachment process will be done in just one day.Again, I set it aside, convinced that even assuming the rumor has a ring of truth to it, the integrity of the leadership of the House will not allow this.Further later, I was advised that an all majority caucus would be conducted on the 12th of December 2011.Taking into account the rumors, I was hard-pressed to hope that the RH bill was what be discussed in that caucus and the not the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
    But I could not convince myself, I had this gut feel that the agenda was the impeachment.
    Reflecting on these rumors, I was psyching myself to blindly vote in favor of the impeachment, for 3 basic reasons:I don’t want my constituents to suffer from the non release of my PDAF if my consciencedictates me not to vote for the impeachment.
    It would be useless to vote no if ever that was what my conscience dictates, since the Yeswill have the numbers anyway.
    And more importantly. I am well aware of the vast powers of the President under ourConstitution and laws. I do not want to catch the ire of the President. Especially, aPresident with a huge popularity rating.With the vast powers of the President, life can be miserable.
    And yet, at the start of the Majority Caucus on the 12th of December 2011, without being given the chance to read the impeachment complaint, I was shocked to hear the opening statement of the leadership of the House at the all majority caucus:That because of the alleged association of Chief Justice Corona, to his Patron, the formerPresident GMA, he is the obstacle to the plans of the President;That the only thing to do isto remove the Chief Justice;
    That the Chairman of the Committee on Justice will explain the grounds for impeachment
    That we were clearly given two choices: to sign or not to sign;Liliwanagin ko ho, walahong pilitan. Kung matatandaan ko iyong eksaktong sinabi naman niSpeaker, ang sabi niya, iyong gusting pumirma, pumirma, iyong mga ayaw pumirma, huwagpumirma. Pero ang hindi ko ho nagustuhan ay iyong sinabi noong pang-apat na this is nondebatableand no questions will be entertained.In fact, two colleagues stood up at tinanong nga kung pupwede. Pagkatapos noon, I thought right there and then we were just a rubber-stamp Congress. Pagkatapos nating i-rubber stamp ang dalawang budget, ngayon naman ito namang impeachment. A collegial Body that just relinquished the integrity of its institution and its independence to a co-equal branch.I was expecting the Speaker, as the leader of the House to protect the integrity of the House from effecting this railroad impeachment process, or considering the speed at which it was implemented, should I say, runway impeachment process?How can you vote for the impeachment without having had the chance to even read the articles of impeachment much less verify the facts and merits of the case?I cannot understand that speed at which the entire process was effected. Why the haste? In a matter of hours? Why cannot we give him due process, a basic right protected by no less than the fundamental law of the land?Again, lest I be misunderstood, hanga ako sa ating Pangulo, na hinahangad ang matuwid na daan para sa bansa natin. I know for a fact that the President himself is an example of one who follows the law of the land.I saw him twice on the road. Ako ho ang go, siya ho angnaka-stop. At dahil alam kong iyon ho ay convoy ng Presidente, huminto ho ako, sinenyasan ko ho iyong kanyang convoy na mauna na, ngunit hindi ho talaga tumakbo iyong kanyang convoy hanggang noong nag-green light. This is a testament that the President does not want to abuse his power.
    So it seems inconsistent that a President who follows basic traffic rules, would not want due
    process to be followed.The President was a former Congressman. Do you think that if Pnoy were still a Congressman now, he would sign an impeachment if it were done in the same manner as it was done yesterday?
    I am not defending the Chief Justice. I have to give credit to the spin doctors, they have done a very good job in playing the GMA card. Ang PR dyan ay ang boto kay CJ or ang hindi bumoto para sa impeachment, ay kasama sa mga protector ni GMA.And admittedly, with due respect to the former President, her popularity would be no match to the popularity of PNoy. That is the reason why, that is the card that is always being played.
    For the record, I will not and cannot try to protect GMA. I have never been a GMA ally. I have been against GMA from her first day in office to her last day in office.
    This is not about Pinoyvs GMA.This is about the integrity and independence of the Supreme Courtand other coequal branches of government.And so today, I rise to defend the integrity and independence of the House of Representatives. Dati ang sabi nila sa akin, kung galling ka sa local government, you will get bored in the House. But on the contrary, I have come to love this place and love my job. And I will do everything to defend this
    institution and its integrity.Again, I do not want trouble with the most powerful man in the country. If the President wants GMA to be jailed for her alleged sins, I am one with him. But in pursing justice, it must be done in a manner that does not destroy our institutions and more importantly the co-equal status guaranteed by the Constitution.Noon hong naglabas ang Supreme Court ng constructive resignation theory tungkol kay Panguloong
    Estrada, ang sabi ko ho noon, hindi ako sang-ayon doon sa judgment na iyon. But even during that time, ang sabi ko ho, I have to respect the judgment of the Supreme Court, dahil kung hindi ho natin igagalang ang desisyon ng Supreme Court ay wala ho tayong karapatan na magdemanda ng kahit sino man.To the Speaker, Speaker Belmonte, I am honored and grateful that despite being a neophyte, you have given me the chairmanship of the Committee on Metro Manila Development. It also saddens me since I am good friends with your children, but this matter before us now transcends friendships.
    At saka iyong sa mga kaibigan ko diyan na nagsasabing maghintay ako ng isa pang araw, pagisipan ko ng mabuti at iniisip ang aking kabutihan, maraming salamat sa inyong mabuting payo sa akin.I am a neophyte Congressman, I do not know whether this decision is politically correct or not, but I am sure that I will be able to sleep—makakatulog ako ng mahimbing mamayang gabi because I will do what my conscience dictates.Since in my opinion the leadership cannot protect the integrity and independence of this beloved institution, then I resign from the majority and relinquish all positions assigned to me. Effective immediately, I declare myself to be anindependent member in accordance with the rules of the House.

        oo nga naman… binasa ko rin hanggang dulo

  • Fulpol

    hindi membership sa isang party o party affiliation o kahit prinsipyo pala ang basehan sa pag-impeach sa isang public official sa Kongreso, kundi…

    pag-pressure at pag-intimidate gamit ang pork barrel..

    tyranny at corruption pala, at hindi democracy..

    nakakahiya…

    Salamat COng Tiangco..

    hhhahaa
    ahaha

  • imnotstupid

    I don’t see the relevance of the testimony of Tiangco…In any branch of government..like the Supreme Court..majority rules..kaya anong iniiyak ng defense lawyers at ni Corona samantalang ginawa nila ito sa Supreme Court…Kaya nga kung anong ginawa mong masama huwag kang magcomplain kung the same happens to you…tapos itong si Tiangco what can he expect to do
    disregard iyong decision sa Congress na iimpeach si Corona??Maliwanag na nagsasayang lang ang oras para magpresent ng witness tungkol sa decision ng Congress…sabi na nga ni Enrile hindi nila mababago ang Impeachment decision ng mga Congressmen…dapat maghanda na lang sila para maexplain iyong SALN discrepancies at iyong other articles of Impeachment.

  • lostRunes

    Bottomline, hindi maayos yung pagkagawa ng impeachment complaint kaya ganun kasabug ang prosecution mag presenta ng ebidensiya. Feeling kasi nila mag reresign nalang ang CJ so bakit pa sila maghihirap.

    Tiangco is another witness to the baluktot na daan ni President Aquino. Sabi nga ni Budget Secretary Abad, on my own I can not withold funds for congressmen.. Pero kung kaibigan mo si Noynoy mapapa walang sala lahat ng ka gag uhan mo at korapsyon mo at mga kamag anak ko pa ang lalagay sa mga bakanteng posisyon sa gobiyerno!

    Hello Malacanang Communications Group and bloggers, are you going to try and kill me like that reporter for the Daily Tribune?

    • CheapJ

      Bottomline is that Tiangco’s testimony has no bearing at all in the impeachment trial. Corona is the one being tried here and not PNoy. Tiangco can use his case to impeach PNoy but he must not muddle the issue against Corona. If you guys believe that Corona deserves being the CJ after all the revelations, that means that you condone liars to occupy the highest position in the judiciary, business as usual. This has to stop if you want this country to move forward. You can also help in exposing the irregularities committed under PNoy’s administration.

    • damatannapo

  • takerenatoout

    Nag maktol lang si Toby siempre ung iba nakabawi na ng gastos sa Election sya dipa wawa naman heheh di ba..
    Ang gawa kc ni Toby sa Novotas nag aalaga ng 10.000 botante yan buong taon. Pag Xmas may regalo. pag lumapit bibigyan plus monthly allowance. Bakit 10,000 inaalagaan nya? kasi pag dating ng Election dadami pa un dahil pinipili nya ung maraming kapamilya.kaya kung sa isang pamilya may 5 or 10 botante times 10,000= at least may 50,000 votes kaagad siya.
    Punta kau Navotas magtanong kau.
    Saan siya babawi ng gastos? Syempre 10% na lang ng 70 milyon medyo bawi na.
    Pero pag na delay Pork nya laki tubo ng inutang nya, Patay ang kita heheh

    What is the point of this two-bit congressman?  His testimony is just a big waste of time considering the impeachment court’s ruling on the legality of the ongoing impeachment trial.  Corona’s defense should stop pussyfooting around the key issues, namely, Corona’s fraudulent SALNs and the huge unexplained increase in his wealth.  Why not address these issues frontally and immediately  and stop wasting time.

    may magandang epekto ba? sguro kasi nalaman ng publiko ang isang tyrannical at corrupt practice sa pag-impeach dahil sa pork sa kongreso..

      true!  and this is not the first time that they pressure one another for something diba?  politics is really lkie that.

        isa ka pa. anong pressure eh si Tiangco mismo nagsabi natanggap niya P70 oink oink barrel niya. asaan ang pressure?

      • occlownfish

        i know that he got the money.  but he is still crying about being pressured.  so he should quit if he can’t take pressure with his elected post.  hindi lang naman yan ang pressure sa work nya, not just the pork barrel issue which he got eventually. read my statement first before you attack me. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LIAI3J4PISMOGFVMB4PLRZIMOI str8boy

      isa kang kumakahol na aso. Natanggap ni Tiangco ang Pork niya kahit  kontra siya. Di tulad ng panahon ni GMA na pag  oposisyon, zero agad.

      • Fulpol

        str8boy,

        nag-ingay si Tiangco kaya inilabas ni Abad.. mapapahiya kasi si NOynoy kasi ayaw niya ng utak wang wang.. eh nagmumukhang utak wang wang si Abad..

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LIAI3J4PISMOGFVMB4PLRZIMOI str8boy

    Sabi ni Tiangco: Takot ako sa presidente na mataas ang Popularity rating. Ayaw ko kumontra.
    Solusyon ni Tiangco: Maging katawa-tawang witness para sa depensa na wala naman siyang naibigay na relevant.
    Sabi ni Tiangco: Mahirap ang buhay pag kontra ka sa administrasyon.
    Ang katotohanan: Kahit kontra siya, natanggap pa rin niya ang P70M niya.

    samakatwid, ano ang nai-contribute ng witness na ito sa depensa na hindi marunong magsagot ng tama ang isang justice sa SALN??

    • Fulpol

      strboy,

      ng-ingay kasi si Tiangco kaya inilabas ni Abad ang pork barrel niya.. mapapahiya kasi si Abad..

    • occlownfish

      tama ka bro. drama lang ni tiangco yan kaya tumahimik na lang sya. kung umarte akala mo na ngayon lang na pressure.  eh wala ngang pressure dahil nakuha din nya ang pera.  baka na pressure sya kung paano ny ibubulsa ang parte nya.

  • ValencianoEd

    There is no separation of powers in as far as the lower house of congress and the executive are concerned.  Clearly, the Executive controls the congressmen, and as Tiongco asserted, PNoy can make life miserable.  The pork makes PNoy supreme in the house.  Is this also true with the Senate?  I would think so because PNoy, or the president holds the purse. . . . .  So the purse, in this respect makes the principle of co-equal branches inutile.  The reality is that, only the Judiciary cannot be beholden to a president because pork is not part of the justtices’ diet.

        E nung una, si panot sinabi nyang a alisin totally ang pork,  tapos umatras sya.  labag sa una nyang statement, di lang nya inalis ang pork, dinagdagan pa nya (para sa mga ka alyado nya).  bakit po ba ang presidenteng panot natin, iba ang ginagawa sa sinasabi nya?  meron bang katotohanan na pinsan nya si Budoy?  Be happy be Budoy?

  • filipinaskoh

    i watched the cross examination in the you tube.

    Ang haba ng testimony ni Tiangco, ang tanging inaangal nya lang ay ang na-delayed lang ng 3 mos ang pork barrel nya. Kuha naman nya lahat on time at panahon iyon ni merceditas gutierrez, anong kinalaman nun sa impeachment ni Corona.

    Rudy Farinas is very good, it seems I can see why he just made two question: if he received his 2 allocations. The first one was delayed but the second was not.  Well, the prosecution will make it appear that toby  had other more intentions…

    Nagmukhang tanga si toby sa re-direct nya. If you have your scholar, you can still send them to school a mere letter( with promissory note) from the congressman will be accepted, doesn’t he knows that, ang tanga naman nya. For the medical benefit if you really want to help them there are hundred ways to do it. bakit si Lacson di nya kinukuha ang allocations nya magmula maging senador sya.

    hay naku Toby, un pa ang ginamit mong dahilan kababaw naman!

    Puro ka hearsay, ang sabi ni ganito at ni ganyan, akala ko banag ang court hindi tinatanggap ang TSISMIS.

  • katabay1106

    So both the corrupt government of GMA and the daang matuwid of Pnoy are both using the PDAF or Pork Barrel Funds to prostitute the House of Representative to bend to their wishes. Is this not outright graft and corruption impeachable under the Constitution?  Is this not betrayal of public trust? Pwe!

  • noeltabaz2

    The pressure exerted (if ever) by the administration regarding the impeachment case of Merceditas Gutierrez is different from the ongoing case against CJ Corona.  The witness must testify that the congressmen were pressured to sign the impeachment case against CJ Corona.  For me, whether or not there is pressure exerted by the administration to have the impeachment case filed against CJ Corona, the defense just have to prove that their client is not guilty in all of the 3 articles of impeachment.  If he is not guilty in all 3 articles, then he should be judged not guilty and stay as CJ midnight appointee.

  • Fulpol

    kung ano ang istilo ni Arroyo sa kongreso, yun din ang ginagawa ni Noynoy… ang paggamit ng pork barrel bilang panakot at panuhol..

    nasaan ang matuwid na daan ni Noynoy? gusto niya ikulong ang kagaya niyang corrupt para hindi tularan?

    Madumi din pala maglaro ang PNoy government. Pakitang tao lang pala iyong matuwid na daan. Ngayon mas nainiwala na ako na Hacienda Luisita ang dahilan ng impeachment ni CJ Corona. Ang mga ologarkiya nga naman sa politika, pare pareho lang silang ginagamit ang sambayanang Pilipino at ang pera nito para mapanatili ang kanilang yaman. Tsk Tsk Tsk. Malinaw na kung bakit ganito ang buhay nating mga Pilipino. Palso ang mga pinuno natin from Quezon to PeNoy Aquino.

  • TalagaNaman

    Rep. Tiangco proved that almost all of the 188 who signed the impeachment did not even have a copy of what they supposed to verify first. The impeachment was signed without any evidence presented to convince the congressmen.

    Since there was no evidence. the defense was able to establish the fact that there was no probable cause. Thus, the impeachment (which should be junked) is deemed to be weak.

    The Senate realized now that they have let the impeachment without probable cause to proceed. Now they know how weak is the case from the beginning, that it is full of lies and deceits, na puro kagaguhan lang ang pinaggagawa ng prosecutors (kaya namumura ni Sen. Santiago), NOT GUILTY will be the verdict.

    • ofwme2807

      ito ba isang tagasunod ni lolo cuevas nsa state of denial pa rin…hindi pa rin matanggap ang sinabi na tapos na yan may desisyon na dyn proceed with the trial hurray hoho…mag-isip isip muna bago mgcomment….

      • TalagaNaman

        Mahina ka umintindi kaya di mo nababasa ang taktika ng depensa. Kahit na napagdesisyunan na ituloy ang kaso, pinahihina ng depensa ang kaso.

        Pinakikita ng depensa na hindi sa nilalaman ng impeachment sumang-ayon ang mga pumirma, kundi sa nilalalaman ng pork barrel.

        Bakit kailangan pang manuhol kung malakas ang kaso?

        Huwag ka nang magmagaling dahil yung sinabi mo, narinig ko na yan ng ilang beses. Yung sinasabi ko, hindi mo pa naririnig. Analysis ang tawag dyan, at wala ka nyan.

      • Mark Suarez

        taktika ba yun? ulyanin na ata si lolo cuevas mo nakalimutan nya ata na na may decision na ang senate last Jan 18 about the veracity of the complaint. pinaiikot ikot lang ni lolo cuevas mo ang trial..

      • TalagaNaman

        kumbaga sa basketball, veteran’s move yun. Kunwari, you complain the call of the referee para bumawi sa susunod nyang tawag.

        Sa larong chess, you have to think several moves in advance, and you must know how to anticipate the next moves of your opponent.

      • Mark Suarez

        Veteran’s move?. Kung veterano ka talaga hindi ka na magpapaligoy ligoy pa. Kung malakas talaga ang rebuttal ng defense sa 3 articles for sure hindi na papatulan ng defense si toby. the mere fact na pinagpipilitan pa rin ni Cuevas ang napagdecision na nung Jan 18, it shows na  wala silang ganoong kalakas  na evidence to rebut prosecution. hahanga ako sa defense kung first day pa lang nagpasabog na sila, wala ng paligoy ligoy pa. kung innocent ka talaga gugustuhin mo ba mga paligoy ligoy para tumagal ang trial mo kung malakas naman evidence mo? for sure hindi..

      • TalagaNaman

        Hindi mo ba alam o ngayon mo lang ba narinig na importante rin yung sympathy of the public? Ano sa palagay mo bakit mahilig ang prosecutors at si Penoy sa trial by publicity?

        The defense is establishing na hindi malinis si Penoy at ang mga prosecutors. Na sila mismo ay mga corrupt din. Na ang ugat ng impeachment ay hindi dahil naka-commit si Corona ng impeachable offense kundi pansariling interes lang ni Penoy.

      • Mark Suarez

        Isa lang naman gusto madinig at mapanood ng impeachment, sagutin ang allegations sa article 2,3,7. pag nasagot ng defense yan ng direcho w/ proper evidence, for sure acquit si Corona. Sympathy ng public? hahaha pinapatawa moko. hindi naman ni toby nakuha sympathy ng public naging katawa tawa nga sya. mga senador na nagsabi na irrelavant pinagsasabi nya. naglabas lang sya ng sama ng loob sa delayed PDAF pero nakuha din nya pala. ok sana kung hndi nya nakuha. lumalabas tuloy na naghahabol lang ng pera si toby.

    • Philhealth

      Hala kabobo talaga naman. Hayan na sa harapan mo ang ebidensya, wala pa ring probable cause sa iyo. Peso at dollar account eh mahina pa rin sa iyo. Si Santiago eh matagal ng may tama kaya naman pati ikaw ay nahawa na. Kaya isang bagsak, may tama ka!

      • TalagaNaman

        Ang probable cause na tinutukoy sa usapin na ito ay kung may basehan o ebidensya ba bago simulan ang pagdinig sa kaso. Ang isyu ng bank accounts ni Corona, lumabas lang nung inilabas na nya ang SALN nya during the trial. Without the SALN, they wouldn’t have any idea of the wealth of Corona.

        Gets mo? Tingin ko hindi pa rin. Napakabobo mo eh.

    • jan lim

      i agree, not only did he proved that, he also proved that the impeachment is a political process to condemn all impeachable officers that are percieved enemies. moro-moro lang ang lahat ng ito.

  • Rae_E

    Defense is clearly desperate for Tobias’ testimony is obviously irrelevant to the Corona’s impeachment as his allegations pertains to Merci Gutierrez. If IC allowed using this tack, why don’t they investigate as well why 4 impeachment complaints filed against GMA didn’t prosper in 2005,2006,2007,2008 despite the fact she was unpopular & charges were grave? The Defense tries to paint the administration as bully when their client enabled a much worst bully.I don’t agree w/ use of PDAF by PNoy & it should be scrapped but why don’t they start investigating the master/expert user? Stop diverting, suppressing, evading the issue Corona/Defense, just answer the charges head-on!

    • jan lim

      yun nga mismo ang dahilan kung bakit hindi nag prosper ang complaint against GMA. impeachment is a political process, it’s a numbers game. PDAF ang pangtakot ng mayorya sa anumang isyu na gustong ipatupad ng sino mang naka upo sa pwesto. tama lang na inilabas ito no tobias upang patunayan na ginigipit lang ni PNOY ang sinumang perceived enemy. ito ay mahalagang parte ng depensa upang patunayan ang kalakaran ng impeachment trial ng sinuman, na isang moro-moro lamang at hindi totoong proseso ng katarungan.

    Motto of most PNoy congressmen: “My loyalty to my country and my Party and my Constituents ends when my PDAF is threatened”.

    • damatannapo

      Pnoy has no monopoly on pork barrel and it’s evil ways it extends down to city and municipal towns and the barangay levels which has it’s own type of pork barrel
      mind you it’s in millions too

  • erick_1972

     Nothing new ,no changes only the gender and the height ,also the hair .Same situation as is.What changed is he is in power and the latter is in hospital arrest or did it. Still the same as always.

    • damatannapo

      Hope that PDAF be elimated from our system

      It sticks down to the barangay level with PDAF type of funds and has discretion

      • basyong

        that should have been the first thing abnoy should have eliminated to show his sincerity to his daang matuwid

      • antonioluna

         baka hindi nya gawin yon kasi nanay nya ang naglagay nyan

      • erick_1972

        Since Marcos era pa yan, even then when the late Pres. Cory Aquino tried to eliminate it but never happened. It is not only the senators nor congressman have PDAF even the vice president and even the president has pork barrel.

    Tobias Tiangco- Shame on you, you vile politician! Sneaky, snarky, smarmy, slime snot! 

    First of all, you claim to have been pressured by Belmonte et al to vote against your “conscience.” Assuming they did, so what? 

    Let me ask you this, knowing how evil you are, is there any other way for the good guys (Belmonte et al) to try to persuade vermin like you to do the right thing? I DON’T THINK SO.

    AND BESIDES, you still voted according to your “conscience” right? 

    YOU STILL VOTED FOR THE DIRTIEST SCAM ARTIST TO EVER “GRACE” THE SEAT OF CHIEF MAGISTRATE! 

    A TYRANNICAL THIEF, A WOULD-BE MURDERER AND DISGRACEFUL BULLY WHOSE DISSEMBLING WAYS ARE WITHOUT ANY CONCEIVABLE LOWER LIMIT, WHO WOULD IMPUGN AN OBVIOUSLY GOOD PERSON (SISTER FLORY)!!

    Madre de Dios!!!

    What does that say of you? The people of Navotas do not deserve to be represented so BADLY!

    • jan lim

      i praised TOBIAS TIANGCO, for doing what he did.. that is a sign of a good leader, not afraid to divulged wrongdoings of his colleagues…. we need leaders like him….

      • maximilianb

        Paano pareho kayong baluktot. Good Leader?  Anong hinihithit mo jan? o baka naman natural na sabog ang pag-iisip mo. you make me sick!

  • baracena

    mga yellow army…. di nyo lang kasi matanggap na si pinoy ay corupt din…. naloko kayo at napaniwala na di xia corrupt… excuse me….. yang pang gigiit nya sa SC dahil sa luisita is corruption na….. and tunay yang mga statements ni Tiangco…. tanggapin nyo nlng ang katotohanan….

    • antonioluna

       zombieng aso, una tanga ka kung sasabihin mong walang kurap sa administrasyon na ito, pangalawa umapila ba si Pnoy para sa HLI? ang tanga tanga mo hindi mo naisip na si cheap dog mismo ang gumagalit sa HLI para sa kanyang ikagagaling, dahil tanga ka hindi mo naisip na maaring naman ng magdesisyon ang korte suprema ng ibigay na ng libre ang lupa dahil hindi naman talaga pag aari ng mga cojuangco ang HLI.

      dahil sa tanga ka nga, bago ba sa pandinig mo ang sinasabi ni tyongo este tiangco eh gawain na iyan ng kahit sinong nakaupo ang mambraso ang gumamit ng pera para lang maisulong ang kanyang adhikain.

      magbasabasa ka ng kasaysayan para naman hindi pumupurol ang maliit mong utak, ang tangatanga mo ang bobobobo mo kaya zombie ka na tuloy.

      • baracena

        they have no right to be payed kasi it was just leased to them… kung bag pinahiram lng…. and besides pasalamat nga sila kay GMA dahil sa SCTEX tumaas ang lupa…. and that 10 billion is from our taxes… they want to be payed…. kaw ang magbasa ng history books . . . and besides grabe na ang powers nila dahil sa kabastusan ng Aquino dahil kung iyong titingnn lahat ng lupa o lahat ng may mga hacienda sa pilipina na CARP na sa kanila nlng ang hindi look ho bastos and corrupt are they…. yan ang isipin nyo…. bobo

      • antonioluna

        pati sa pagbabasa ang obobs mo inulit mo lang ang sinabi ko ang tatanga tanga mo talaga at ang bobobobo mo pa, zombie talaga,ang zombieng katulad mo ay hindi nakikitang tama ang pagpapakulong kay pandakekak at cheap dog.

        bago ka humusga asong zombie, ikumpara mo muna kung gaano kalaki ang mga lupain ni pandakekak at FG buwaya dahil baka magulat na na wala pa sa sampung porsyento ang HLI.

      • maximilianb

        P-A-I-D. ENGOT. WRONG SPELLING.

      • jan lim

        @antonioluna alam mo naman pala na kurap din ang administrasyong ito, eh bakit patuloy mo pa ring ipinaglalaban?

        dapat siguro ay siyasatin mong maiigi ang ipinaglalaban ng mga magsasaka sa HLI at ang patuloy na pagiwas ng pamilyang aquino sa pamamahagi nito simula ng umupo ang kanyang ina hanggang ngayon na siya na ang naka upo..

        makikita mo dito ang patuloy na pang gigipit ang pang haharas ng mga kohorts ng pamilya sa mga magsasakang nakikipaglaban ng kanilang mga karapatan.

        kawawa ka naman pala sapagka’t ang matuwid na daang ipinaglalaban mo ay siya ring daan na dinaanan ng dating administrasyon. ito pala ang klase ng matuwid na daan na gusto mo… well solohin mo na lang ang daang yan, wag mo na kaming idamay pa…

      • antonioluna

        ano kamo ang ipinaglalaban ko? ang sabi ko supurtado ko ang pagpapakulong kay pandakekak at mga alipores nya.

        yaong tungkol sa HLI sisihin mo si cheap dog dahil maari namang ipamahagi ang HLI ng libre at walang bayad dahil hindi naman sa mga cojuanco ang lupa pero ano ang ginawa ni cheap dog lumalaro sya at ginagamit nya ang HLI bilang baraha nya, ikaw ang magsiyasat dahil kulang na kulang ang impormasyon mo.

      • maximilianb

        Antonioluna, wag mo nang pansinin yang jan lim na yan. malamang corrupt yang gagong yan! hehehe

      • antonioluna

        tama ka dyan bro, malamang naagawan lang iyan ng nanakawin hehehe

    • maximilianb

      WALANG GAMOT SA TANGA. KAWAWA KA NAMAN BARACENA.

      • jan lim

         maximilianb, WALA RING GAMOT SA NAG BUBULAG BULAGAN AT NAG BIBINGI-BINGIHAN.

        malinaw na malinaw na ang matuwid na daan na gustong tahakin ng administrayong aquino ay sya ring daan na tinahak ng dating administrasyon..

        sa tingin ba ng mga nagbubulag-bulagan eh ito ang matuwid na daan?? kawawa ka naman…………..

  • TalagaNaman

    Yung mga fans ni Penoy, asal-Penoy din. Double standard din ang pinaiiral.

    Pinalalabas na walang kagulat-gulat sa mga revelations ni Tiangco dahil normal na raw ang corruptions sa gobyerno. Kapag ang idol nilang Panot ang sangkot sa corruption, dedma lang kasi normal lang yun. Kapag kalaban ang sangkot, dapat daw linisin.

    Sabagay, alam naman natin na walang prinsipyo ang mga zombies. And they do not attack their own kind.

    • Mark Suarez

      sorry na lang nagsabi na si Enrile at ang ibang senators na irrelavant ang testimony ni tiangco. if the defense will not stop this kind of tactic, pipigilan na sila ni Enrile…

      • jan lim

        well thats not the real point here, although they said that it is irrelevant, they will not strike it out, in the end it will have a place in the decission making of the senators, kasi dito makikita nila na ginagawa silang tanga ng nasa lower house. parang opinion ni De Lima, hearsay lang pero still part of her statement, ganun din ang magyayari duon in the end…

        pero ito ay may mas malaking impact sa ilang mga senador… 

      • Mark Suarez

        they will not strike out para pagbigyan lang ang defense. but if they continue the same Enrile will stop them.. buti nga hindi masyado sinalang si Tiangco nitong huli… the thing is hindi naman nakapag establish si Tiangco about articles 2,3,7. about the veracity of the complaint, it was already decided last Jan. 18. Si lolo cuevas pilit pang pinapasok ang isang  bagay na napagdesisyonan na…

  • Odran89

    It’s amusing who’s crying foul now, although i agree that PDAF really has no place in a government with separation of powers. First of all, the Congressmen are there to make laws, not build basketball courts or waiting sheds, or even if well meant, needed government infrastructures. PDAF really gives the executive an upper hand against members of Congress.

    Just like the WLO used by GMA against our countrymen during her time and now assailed for having been used against her, the PDAF was a very effective tool of GMA during her time. Now, it is really laughable that those supporting her and her appointee, Corona, is crying foul.

    The impeachment has again shed light to this ugly side of PDAF. However, I doubt the Senators and the Congresmen would remove PDAF. It is moer likely that they would advocate an “automatic release” of PDAF without intervention from the executive.

    Gangster and intimidation tactics for the matuwid na daan.  This could be the straight path to a P10billion++ pay out for hacienda luisita.  No problem as by and large these politicos and judges are as dirty and corrupt as can be – and we should not be surprised at the tactics they use. Whhaaa.

    • Mark Suarez

      Wala bang bago HLI na naman?…

    I don’t think his testimony has any bearing on the case… It doesn’t disprove the allegations against the CJ!
