Enrile: If I don’t believe in my son, who will?


Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile. FILE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines—Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile won’t be taking a breather when the Congress takes a break to make way for the election period starting February.

He will be out campaigning for his son, Cagayan Rep. Jack Enrile, who is running for the Senate in next year’s elections.

“I don’t think a father would abandon his son. I’m not like that,” Enrile told reporters in a news forum on Thursday.

“If I do not believe in my son, who else will believe in him? I have faith in the capability of my son, modesty aside. That is why he is my son. I trained him from the time he came into this world,” he added.

Still, Enrile said it would be up to the electorate whether the younger Enrile would be in the Senate after May 2013.

If Jack Enrile wins, they would be the first father and son to serve simultaneously in the Senate.

Mother and son, then Sen. Luisa Ejercito-Estrada and Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, once shared the Senate for three years after Estrada won his first term in 2004.

“As I told you, I do not decide the fate of my son. It’s going to be decided by the people but it’s my duty as his father to believe in him, and go out and campaign for him,” Enrile said.

Enrile said he has planned his own campaign for the candidates of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)—a coalition forged between the Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino led by former President Joseph Estrada and the PDP-Laban headed by Vice President Jejomar Binay.

    If there is one candidate the filipino voters should CROSS-OUT outright in the list of senatorial candidates in the coming election, it is jackie enrile.

    Jackie is the most notorious among them and the most unqualified. He was a spoiled brat who learned and mastered the art of bullying while his father johnny was the chief implementor of ML in the 70’s. His name was included in many scandals and teen-age shenanigans during those times, including in the death of alfie anido. 

    He never studied seriously to gain knowledge and wisdom in his youth, which he will badly need as a senator. He will just be another lapid and revilla sitting in one corner during senatorial debates, who will only go where the rest will go.

    The older enrile became so rich using his positions not only as the chief implenetor of ML but also as bootlicker of presidents gma and erap. Is the tree going to bear a different fruit? It never will. Smuggling in northern luzon is so rampant and we know who is the king there. Smuggling will not flourish without the blessings of the king.

    Let’s work to make sure that jackie’s sins are exposed and to make sure he will be out of the top 12 in 2013. Let’s use the blogs of PDI, the social media, twitter and FB. We can do it.  

    • efriend

      Agree. Jack Enrile is not in good terms with his own sister Katrina.  How do you expect him to be in good terms with the Filipino people?  Just say NO to any ENRILE who is running for public office.

      A little correction maby- JPE’s domain is Northeastern Luzon excluding the Dy’s Isabela coz Northwestern Luzon is divided to the Ortegas of La Union, Chavit’s Ilocos Sur and the Marcoses in Ilocos Norte. Though there is a rumor that JPE has a humungous lumber concession somewhere in Samar courtesy of the little bad girl. The beachfront of the lumber concession is used daw for landing of smuggled oil and luxury cars.

  • tra6Gpeche

    Mr. Juan Ponce Enrile, you are perfectly correct and not alone. In the Philippines, for every Filipinos, blood is really, really thicker than water. It is also very true when it comes to children’s relationship with his/her parents. Corrupt children or corrupt parents are considered success and pride in the Filipino families, especially the politicians’ families!

  • vince_bugaboo

    Well, you can believe all you want in your son; we don’t.
    And why should we believe in him when we don’t even believe in you? 
    Anyway, solohin mo ang pag-believe sa anak mo. Let’s see if a single vote will make him a senator!

  • mangtom

    Who the he#l cares if you believe in your son? Believe all you want. Nobody but you cares.

    Mr. Enrile is on his way out as a Senator in 2016. His agenda at this juncture is to put his son as a Senator of the Republic when he steps down for so many reasons. Obviously, they have personal interest to protect so that whatever they are doing, right or wrong. We must remember that Mr. Enrile worked for Marcos during his 20 year rule. With the speed of rooting out coruption in the country, which is what’s happening right now, it wouldn’t be long to find out that his name is sketched in so many anomalies. So, to sum up, why is his son running? You be the judge…Please vote wisely for the people that don’t have vested personal interest..

  • EdgarEdgar

    JPE has every reason to believe in his son. Jackie has proven his killer instinct to his father when he went for his first kill many years ago. Jackie has the killer instinct to go for the kill even as his prey begged for mercy on bended knees. In the ruthless dog-eat-dog world of politics, killer instinct counts for something if not everything. In the ordinary world, Jackie’s killer instinct will serve him well as a hunter or a gatherer. Keenly aware of his son’s killer instinct, JPE must be the proudest father in the world. JPE and Jackie, father and son, they truly deserve each other.


      How could the two of JPE’s offsprings face the public as if nothing bad had happened! All in the name of foolish love and pride! Iba talaga mayaman, natatakpan ng salapi ang mga pangit na gawain! :-(

    It is not important whether Johnny believe in Jacky or Jacky is the son trained by Johnny from birth. What is more important to us Filipinos is what Jacky can bring to the table. What qualifications, experiences and integrity can he present to the people to elect him as senator of the republic.

    So far, all we heard about the son are mostly his negative attributes. And as for the father, history has already told us about his sins…to elect someone like him is to trust a scorpion not to sting.

    So the son was trained but perhaps never learned….it is now the father who will toe the line of the son. He should be able to stand alone. The problem is…he needs to win to protect them from possible investigations. Where did all those riches come from?

    What father would not believe in his son’s capabilities?  Senate Pres. Enrile is no different from most parents who love their children and would do everything to be successful in life. Well, his son Jackie is running for senator so it is natural for him to support his candidacy. It is up to the electorate to decide if the son is worthy to sit in the halls of the Senate.

    “I don’t think a father would abandon his son. I’m not like that.”
    “If I do not believe in my son, who else will believe in him? I have faith in the . . .”
    Mr. Sen. Enrile is on subliminal deception mode. He thinks his words will trigger favorable thoughts about him and his son in the minds of the Catholic voters by suggesting subtly Christ’s parable of the prodigal son.

    But I think Mr. Sen. Enrile’s ploy will fail.  I just called up by phone, one after the other, three of my friends, all devout and practicing Catholics, and performed an “experiment”—-I related to them Mr. Sen. Enrile’s words expressing his attitude towards his son, Jack, and I asked them what story immediately came up in their minds.  The answers amazed me. Because they were uniform.  Each of my three friends answered—-“Jack the Ripper.”

    And when I made a direct suggestion of how about a story from the Bible, The New Testament,  the answers, aside from being also uniform in that all started with a laugh, “Ha ha ha . . .”—-each one said, “Yes, I know what you mean, but that story was about a prodigal son, not a prodigal son-of-a-gun.”


    • eirons1043

      Ur ryt Mr. Mad – No quarrel about a father backing his son to the max.  The only problem is if the father is Juanito Furuganan who is a coddler of anything that is wily and a sipsip to whoever is sitting in Malacanan. His “gusto ko happy ka” was never felt by the public due to ever increasing taxes and prices of goods.  Dapat palitan iyon ng “gusto ko happy ko”.

    Personally speaking, I am not in the least interested in whether Enrile believes in his son or not, I’ve never even thought about it, it concerns me not, Yes, his ‘concern’ for his son to enter the Senate as the son’s rightful designated place, a sort of a ‘Senator in waiting’ an extension of the endless dynastical families who hold some sort of God given right, is something that Enrile will fight tooth and nail for.. Can’t blame the guy really, if I was a Senator it would naturally follow that my offspring would also hold the absolute right to attend the House at some point as well, and given my experience of the bovine electorate I would pull their strings and make it happen…..

    Enrile: If I don’t believe in my son, who will?…. Don’t worry Mr. Senator, if you don’t believe in your son, We, the voters will believe him come election time.

    That means his son is stealthy and dangerous. Does this mean beware of his son then? Just hope that the son will do better than the father.

    Old Enrile has to put a son, so they can protect themselves of future crimes, especially on unexplained wealth, corruption and martial law crimes, unless cover by statute of limitation.
    Our Plutocracy and Psuedo Democracy won’t last, time is nearing to thru socialize democracy.
    This is shown by the changes in Middle East and social network.
    Good luck OLD MAN, anyways your life is short.

    Enrile: If I don’t believe in my son, who will?…Agree.

    Enrile’s mission to the country and filipinos  has not yet been fulfilled  as said in
    Luke 24:44-46
    “And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled,

    “My God, my God, Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me?” Just like a good father,  Enrile won’t forsake his son.

    If you believe in your son, Jackie, then you should believe that he is ill tempered and a killer. You pampered him that’s why he became a wayward irresponsible person. If you trained him well in politics, how come he performed lazily in congress and was alway absent, ha, Mr. Senate President / Martial Law Author and Administrator Johnny Enrile!

    We had enough of you, both of you! NO TO ENRILES!

  • Fulpol

    Enrile had a strong faith to his son… nice gesture of a father.

    I think BS Aquino III also had a strong faith to Bam Aquino…

  • eirons1043

    I am afraid that to most literate voters Johnny’s Jack is a goner. Juanito Furuganan was already on a roll as a winner untill he released his biography that was full of selected facts and most noted for what was not written or mentioned especially how many billions in US dollars were hoarded by Ferdi and Meldy and where was it and on the cronies like Lucio and Danding among others. Lastly he failed to mention about the SC justices that abetted the Martial Law decrees and how rich they are or their heirs now.

  • http://twitter.com/ernestonoel1 hopelovefaith

    Enrile is so drunk with power, and he cannot discern truth from opinion.  Does he even read what we write here?
    Why could we not give Enrile the praise and admiration we accorded Robredo. 
    Because most of us believe that Robredo’s short government career was a blessing to us while Enrile’s decades long in public service is a curse to the Filipino people.

    well Enrile is just being honest. No one believes in his son except him.

  • Taiko_Kauna

    All throughout his earthly sojourn Enrile has been with gov’t, and except for his sycophants, he is considered “”incredible”.He served long in the senate, made the same promises when election time came without fulfillment.Popular among these is his vow to lower the cost of electricity. Walang nangyari! BOOOOH!

     o onga noh.. YOU AR ENOT THE TYPE THAT ABANDONS HIS SON.

    Aminin nalang nya sa publiko na yumaman sya ng husto noong martial law, habang pinapakulong nya lahat ng oposisyon. Dapat rin nyang aminin na maraming nagyari noong martial law na sya lang ang may pasya..kaya nga nagkabanggaan na sila ni Ver ng sumusubra na cya, si macoy naman kc takot kay enrile yon ang totoong sitwasyon noon.

    Sneaky Enrile. Up to now still terrorizes the country. He can believe and adore his pampered killer son but he should not force us to believe him and his son!

    may karapatan din po si senator enrile kagaya ng karapatan ninyo na mag-post dito, que mapatuligsa man o pagpupuri……..

  • basilionisisa

    what a sad thing to say coming from a father, Mr Enrile. so you just ‘believe’ in him as a duty. Napipilitan ka lang dahil anak mo, is that it? not because he is really good?

    Poor Jackie! with father like that who needs opposition?

    If Jackie wins, congratulations to all of us stupid Filipinos. We really deserve the kind of officials and government we now have. His victory will also show that we really love to wallow in misery and corruption and most especially, it will show just how devoid we are of love of country. For your information, although I am including myself in the collective, I have never ever voted for Enrile, Jinggoy, Erap, Honasan, Trillanes, Sotto and Revilla.
