Santiago, Trillanes in ouster plot–Enrile



Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile: So be it. INQUIRER FILE PHOTO

If President Aquino were involved in the plot to oust him in connection with the reproductive health (RH) and sin tax measures, Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile said Sunday he would respect the President’s decision.

Malacañang, however, said the President’s relationship with Enrile remained good and that an ouster move against the Senate President would only complicate Monday’s crucial vote on the RH bill.

In a radio interview, Enrile tagged Senators Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Antonio Trillanes IV as those leading the ouster move, but he voiced doubts the President had a hand in it.

“I don’t think the President has anything to do with it. Even if he does, I will respect his decision,” Enrile said in an interview over radio station dzBB.

He said he had good relations with the President, but couldn’t say the same thing of Mr. Aquino’s allies.

Enrile said the President was aware of his position on the RH and sin tax bills, and his involvement with the opposition United Nationalist Alliance, which was fielding its own senatorial candidates against the administration slate.

Ahead of Monday’s vote on second reading of the RH bill in the Senate, Santiago told the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Saturday that she expected Enrile to lose the Senate presidency in January or February because of his fierce opposition to the measure.

Quoting Trillanes and “certain VIPs” in Malacañang, Santiago said the executive department was “concerned” over Enrile’s opposition not only to the RH bill but also to the sin tax measure.

The President’s deputy spokesperson, Undersecretary Abigail Valte, said that so far, Mr. Aquino has “good relations” with Enrile.

Budget Secretary Florencio Abad, senior political adviser to the President, said it would not be prudent to mix up any ouster move with the crucial vote on the RH bill.

Enrile said Santiago and Trillanes were angry with him. “I’m at the disposal of the senators. I have no Torrens title to it (Senate presidency). If they have the numbers, they should just tell me,” he said.

Enrile challenged Santiago to file an ethics complaint against him for his decision to return her Christmas gift. He said Santiago’s gift did not carry a personal message and thought it was sent by mistake to his office.

“If she felt insulted, that’s her problem. She can file a complaint against me with the ethics committee. There’s nothing dishonorable about it. If one doesn’t want to be my friend why should I force myself on the person? Miriam did not vote for me as Senate President,” he said.

Santiago resented that Enrile returned her gift, saying this could be an offshoot of their differing positions on the RH bill.

Recalling their past working relationship, Enrile said he took Santiago in as his assistant while he was justice secretary because she had good academic record despite a “low grade” in the bar exams.

He said he had also accepted her membership in the Senate majority on Sen. Manuel Villar Jr.’s intercession.

Enrile said he  opposed Santiago’s confirmation as agrarian reform secretary during the Aquino administration because she failed to return the car of one Poch Trinidad, then vice president of  Philippine National Bank, when she was still a judge.

    senators must show what is a democratic process is all about… it to the Pilipino people for this senated presidency. NOTHING PERSONALAN!

  • noypisiTED

    Please bear in mind that when you remove Sen. Enrile as senate prexy you’re doing him a favor. The “crotchety” senator is already wobbly and needs to slow down. The stresses of the position are taking a toll on his health. He has done his share of work for the nation for which we are grateful. However, if we look at the vista politicians wear its kinda odd for the PNoy administration to keep someone who bites the hand that feeds the mouth. Put somebody in the senate who will support the administration’s progressive agenda, besides, we can’t wait seeing Wanbol University alumnus Sen. Ongasis Sotto go too.

    You depend on disorderly behavior to subject enrile to the ethics committee but how about your arrogance during committee hearings are those not disorderly conduct too? You should be the very senator to be remanded to that committee so that your kind be punished or be removed since you’re a disgrace to the Filipino race

  • dorothyanne88

    ENRILE whether or not you be removed, you are already a champion in the eyes of these Antis even the Almighty has in His memory, your unbending stand to fight for His words. Never be swayed for that senate presidency is just a position in the gov’t but in God’s kingdom you are great

      Don’t worry, history will be the judge.
      If not today, his ultimate “fear” will come true when he’s gone.

  • Facilitator1

    After reading this article, my impression is Senator Enrile is really annoyed and bitter about the possible senate coup. Furthermore, Senator Sotto’s comments , a close ally of Enrile, about the arduous task of reorganizing senate committees is a VILE THREAT/CHALLENGE with a hint of BRAVADO to the senate body; thus, making it more believable that Enrile is really offended/infuriated/displeased.

    But come to think about it, Enrile or any would-be Senate President is really POWERLESS if he/she is voted-out by his /her peers out of the Senate Presidency.  The Senate president is serving at the pleasure of his/her fellow senators and he/she can be removed anytime even with or without basis or reasons. PEACE

  • filipinaskoh


    This gentleman and this Lady are starting to wash their dirty linens in public. 

    Enrile, with what you just exposed about Mirriam having a low grade in “bar exam” it’s just you are both heading in a cauldron. I think Mirriam, if I’m not mistaken got a 77% or 78% that she cannot accept.

    • Rosauro


      • wawa2172

         75% ? Just kidding Senator Defensor. Somehow it is not the score in the bar exams that matters but how you make use of the professional license to be productive. Enrile and Miriam are bar passers and they rock the senate with good performance. Whose better? I guess both of them are good. They agree to disagree with each other. At least may hindi takot kay Manong sa senate sa katauhan in Miriam at ang napapuna niyang pinaka gwapong senandor si Trillanes. Trillanes however seems to be pa pogi lang, he is a pork big spender kahit nasa kulungan pa siya. How he did it, well that how good looking he is. A high maintenance senator. Malinis parang si Ping? Tanong lang saan parlor mga pware.,he he he.

  • mad_as_Hamlet

    To my mind, the best thing that Mr. Sen. Enrile can and should do is to atone for his sins to the nation.  He should resign immediately as a senator, and spend the rest of his life planting trees. His son can do the watering.  Also for the rest of his life.

    • Facilitator1

      It’s good for the country that Sen Enrile et al are airing their dirty laundry to the public. The only possible positive outcome is for the VOTING PUBLIC to lose their respect/trust; therefore, Juan dela Cruz won’t vote for them to include their aspiring, would-be politician friends/relatives (collateral damage by affinity and consanguinity).

      Remember the Visconde Massacre. Either the accused Webb was guilty or not, the fact remains Webb’s family POLITICAL future is forever compromise beyond repair. PEACE

  • Dag Erickson

    Most Filipinos today using the computer doesn’t know or experienced MARTIAL LAW.  You just don’t know how the minions of Marcos make a loan at the Philippine National Bank called character loan.  When the money is gone they make a loan again, no problem.  This is the reason why Marcos wants to retire but they told him – NO!  When Marcos left, the national treasury is very clean. The police and the armed forces have no uniforms that they themselves look like NPA rebels. All public employees don’t get paid for months. Our family didn’t eat for days.
        Then you see that the bigwigs whoever works for them enjoy a far better life.  Enrile is one of them. The untouchables.  I don’t know if those money loaned by the Marcos cronies were paid. I need some answers.

        It’s a shame that you chose to call yourself Jose Rizal.  It is very disrespectful to our beloved hero.  You never wrote anything constructive or objective if you want to criticise.  You keep on just maligning the president.  If you have solutions to our country’s woes, be part of the solution and not the problem.
        God bless you my friend.

    • Luthmar

      No, it hasn’t been paid.  We are still paying for that debts.  GMA made it even a much

    Estilong Enrile, mag pa preemptive ang mga announcements nya . The same old style he brought with him during his last days under Mr Marcos. He knew the Marcos forces were aware of his coup plot and he was about to be arrested. And he had his Plan B which was to announce his breakaway at Camp Crame.

    Enrile, time to leave the halls of power and face the consequences of your actions during the Martial Law years. You are hiding under the mantle of the law to avoid prosecution.

       You are ignoring the fact that the RH Bill has overwhelming support of the Filipino people.  The president whom you accused as a sloth is the only Philippine president who moves fast enough to get this bill passed in Congress despite the opposition of old, virgin bishops.

  • Nelson

    Johnny Ponce Enrile, let’s get this straight. The plan to replace you cannot be branded as a “coup.” Your imagination is too wild, maybe its a hangover over of the many coups that you plotted with Gringo Honasan against Cory. You are now seeing the ghosts of the past. Serves you right! It will haunt you forever.

    A coup is staged by the military to overthrow a legitimate government and replace it with another body. You know this definition very well because you have been the architect of so many plans to overthrow the legitimate government! You are not the government of the Republic of the Philippines now, isn’t it? You are a mere president of the senate who can be replaced anytime when the majority of the senators no longer have confidence in you. So, Sir Johnnie, the short of it is you no longer have their confidence. Plain and simple!

    So, carry the shame of one who will be booted out by his peers. Why? . . . . Simple. You carry too much baggage! No matter how many books you write exalting yourself . . . . you will carry the stigma of martial law till the next many generations of your family. You cannot rewrite history. Prepare your exit address!

    • $18209031

      Pusasan na yan. Dapat si Miriam and Trillanes ang mag join forces to resurrect his crimes swept under the rag for a long time. We all know he is hiding for dear life to stay in power so his dark underbelly is hidden from public scrutiny.
      Remove him from postion of power and start the ball rolling. Mahihina naman itong ibang politicians dyan. Takot kasi sila sa kay warlord Enrile. Maybe it s only Trillanes and Miriam who can start the ball rolling.

    Anyone who is decent enough to know he or she is at the center of a brewing storm will use better judgement  rather than doing nothing and just wait for the harm to come.  What Mr. Enrile is saying is,  he isn’t going to volunteer leaving his position unless the efforts to kick him out begins to unfold?  Something like this do not just happen without collateral damage.  Obviously, Mr. Enrile is depending on his supporters to fight his ouster and in the process riles up the citizens already sick and tired of their childish games.

    Give it up peacefully Mr. Enrile and show the Filipino people some decency for a change.

  • Islander

    Enrile is using the term “coup” when referring to the change of the leadership in the Senate.  That is just by force of habit.  A “coup” is a violent and illegal military takeover of the government that he and his ilk are fond of doing.  The change that is happening in the Senate is NOT a coup; it is constitutional and is democracy at its finest — the ability to change leaders when trust is gone.

  • Bengatibo

    It’s time for a change in leadership in the Senate.

    • tilamsik

      Its time to change most senators, in fact.

  • PhoenixPoliticalParty

    Personally,  I don’t think neither Sen.Santiago nor Sen.Trillanes could get sufficient support,  acting only on their own, to oust the incumbent Senate President.  However,  if it is true that they have Malacanang support, then the threat could be serious.  Also, in my humble opinion, there should be new blood as Senate President.  Not Sen.Trillanes, though, who is a newcomer.  I think Senator Chiz Escudero would do the job better.   He has, I believe, no party affiliation, hugely popular, and is a credible personality with the administration.  His only drawback, politically, is that he separated from his wife.

    • felipe

      not of his own liking I supposed…..

    • Loggnat

      Why would a separation with his wife be a drawback? Those who are in the Senate with mistresses in every region are worst than one who is separated due to irreconcilable difference. I think Escudero will be best for the country if he is re-elected and becomes the Senate President bringing in new ideas and perspective on how and where the country should head to. Another plus is he has a beautiful girlfriend according to rumors that she is some actress named Heart – something. .:).

    A friendly advice to Senate President Enrile, it’s better you must do a GRACEFUL EXIT before your adversaries put an end to your illustrious career. Don’t wait for that to happen. It’s just a matter of time, because whether you like it or not your days are numbered. Your ANTI-RH stand is just so disturbing and unacceptable that a brilliant lawyer like you refuses to comprehend that FERTILIZATION results from the union of a male sperm and a female ova, and CONTRACEPTION of whatever method prevents FERTILIZATION, and the argument therefore says that “NO UNION TOOK PLACE” that will result as the innocent unborn that the PRO-RH will kill. Besides, the RH BILL which is very sure to be passed overwhelmingly is not MANDATORY – you avail of it when you want it, if you don’t like then you don’t use it. It’s very plain and simple, and being so against the RH-BILL goes to show that you are just plain STUBBORN. You better RETIRE or RESIGN ASAP and change your attitude for the better, and you will be glad you did for the benefit of the Filipino people. 

    • Malik62

       The original plan of BS Aquino X3 and his KKKKs was to wait until JPE’s term expires on June 30, 2013 since they cannot antagonize him considering the secrets he holds about the 2010 canvassing.  But greed and egos overcame BS and his KKKKs that they want him out now before the RH Bill reaches the Senate.  The greed and bloated egos of BS and his KKKKs will be the cause of their downfall.  The Greeks call it HUBRIS.

  • EdgarEdgar

    To be sure, there’s always more than what meets the eye. Enrile may be facing new threats, but he’s not entirely without options. Enrile may claim that he and the president enjoy a good working relationship, but there’s no telling what’s really in the hearts of men. The senate presidency is not exactly an easy job to handle given that the senate is teeming and overflowing with excess ego. From Senator Santiago’s interview a month or two ago, there are no takers yet which is why Enrile is still the senate president. But given today’s headline of jueteng revelation, Enrile can get back at the administration by looking into who are receiving jueteng payola in Noynoy’s administration today. Having former DILG Puno summoned will be enough to keep the Noynoy’s allies at bay and make Noynoy think twice for some time. But let’s get one thing straight, I will still not vote for Jackie Enrile.

  • mulanay

    Go, Johnny go! Go give Miriam hell! Please tell the public what you knew about her husband, who once worked at the Bureau of Customs. Don’t be shy, we’re behind you, even if we’re pro-RH.

    • ApoLapullapu

      When the dirt under the Customs and Immigrations rugs are swept out, Miriam will keep quiet.

  • dikoy321

    Going against this very important RH Bill that is targeted to improve the lives of the Filipinos in the country is VALIED REASON to kick Enrile out of the Senate Presidency!

    Enrile also favors political Dynasties, a GMA supporter and backer of Sotto’s PLAGIARISM acts!

    Out with Enrile!

    Forward Philippines !!!

    • albayislands

      and don’t forget, enrile and his boss marcos were the architect of martial law…dictatorship government during their time in power…. 

  • Fulpol

    he was praised during Corona’s impeachment…

    now, he was despised because of his stand on RH Bill and sin tax bill…

    the mob of Malacanang will crush anybody who will block their pathway… including the person who used to brought them delicious cakes…

  • Islander

    I think he needs a vacation, a facelift, and a good quality lotion.  He looks dead in the photo.  

  • Hein S

    Senile Enrile, even your son is PRO RH.

  • Loggnat

    Old man Enrile is still the hardcore dirty, will do anything politician of the Marcos time. Those mudslinging at Sen. Santiago are just a warning, like some kind of shot in the bow to let Miriam know that he (Enrile) has dirt on her. If push comes to shove, Enrile will deliver everything in his bag of dirty tricks to Miriam as he did in an earlier skirmish with Trillanes. The people of the Philippines should start sending these relics of the the Marcos’es regime to the pasture by voting them and their family out of the Philippine politics.

    • ApoLapullapu

      Could we have  had our democratic space if Enrile did not part with Marcos?

      • Loggnat

        Was he thinking about the giving the Philippines its democratic space or saving himself from the inevitable downfall of the regime? Or is he also thinking of not losing all the gains he accumulated during the martial law and maybe thinking of  opportunities to wrench power from what he perceived as a weak leader (Cory Aquino) as shown in multiple coup attempts by his prodigy Honasan during the Cory presidency? His one action of siding with the enemies of Marcos does not erase the long service and the misdeeds he did during the martial law. Nor does it erased the other rumored illegal devastation of the environment for money when he is in power after the martial law.

      • Islander

         Speculative.  Nobody knows.  What are sure are these:

        a. Marcos would have to fall anyway.  All dictators do, sooner or later.

        b. Enrile would have been a Marcos barbecue if the people of EDSA did not save his a$$.

        c.  Enrile never planned to give democratic space.  He was overtaken by events.  His plan was a military junta headed by him.

  • Rovingmoron

    Why can’t Enrile give a chance to the younger senators, especially Trillanes? Anyway, Miriam is going to the ICC sooner. That’s the problem with those who had overstayed in power for a long time. They don’t want to give it up and give others a chance to lead.

    • tanga_hanga_ni_abnoy

       tanggalin nila si enrile pero wag nman palitan ng kumunista

  • Marcela

    “Enrile said he took Santiago in as his assistant while he was justice secretary because she had good academic record despite a “low grade” in the bar exams”.
    “Enrile said he opposed Santiago’s confirmation as agrarian reform secretary during the Aquino administration because she failed to return the car of one Poch Trinidad, then vice president of Philippine National Bank, when she was still a judge”. 

    Hala! labasan na ng baho si Enrile at Santiago. This is becoming very interesting indeed! Santiago for sure will not take this lightly. This is a fight of 2 persons with bloated egos. Bring it on! 

    • ApoLapullapu

      Santiago’s stint in Immigration may also be revisited.  Actually, she is just a Media Creation.  She impresses Media with her witty quotable lines.

      • batangpaslit

        So, expose that “media creation”. Problema, intriga lang kayo. Spill the beans, Bro.

    • Seaflip

      Yeah, this is getting interesting, let them mix it up and we’ll see what filth and stench come out of this Christmas frolic.

    • batangpaslit

      Bakit baho?
      Tinago ba ni Mirriam ang mababa niang rating sa Bar?
      Hindi naman sinagot ni Mirriam ang Bar exams. She rewrote how the question ought to be framed.
      Si Claro M Recto, bagsak sa Bar
      Nang nag exams si Recto, he wrote the 1935 Constitution of the Philippines
      Inggit ka lang dahil wala kang na accomplish.

    • Malik62

       Sooner and not later, JPE will reveal everything he knows about BS Aquino X3. Bring it on!

  • Jose

    Whenever I see Sen. Enrile, I’m reminded that I really should check out the Walking Dead series.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Pro-China senators are after controlling the whole senate obviously.

    • Seaflip

      It’s a thought, send all in congress and senate to re-education camps.

  • Garo Ungaro

    Enrile knew it. he will hold on to power until his son is elected or in place…he knew, what will happens if nobody is there to protect his interest?…sometimes, even if u have the money…still u need the power…this 2 POWER and MONEY is the only means of surviving the future…?

  • nes911

    If Enrile is ousted, that’s fine. Senate President is a Rotation Job.

    at least miriam has made her intentions very clear; 
    as for matahari trillones, true to his character just hiding and waiting quietly for the kill. he will be the first to take advantage of the spoils from the fallen prey. after all, he’s got a taste for luxurious living at the people’s expense. 

  • FelixSoriano

    Mabuhay ka Mr. Senate President! 

  • bryant85

    quoting Trillanes and certain vip’s in malacanang Santiago said etc. .  This statement of Santiago affirms the aged reasoning that indeed she is an evil schemer using every tricks in her sleeve as the  wielding axe to chop down anyone who goes against her evil will like the passage of the RH Bill.

    In this particular issue, Santiago used precisely the words of Trillanes and unnamed people as her ground to assume that Pnoy has an ace to grind against Enrile anent the RH Bill and the Sin tax bill. To me such imaginative mind of Santiago spells her demeanor as  a person to be highly dangerous which may lead to other greater damage that she’ll infused to the country if she be tolerated to stay in the political arena. I’m already scared of her for in my mind as based on her past unbecoming tantrums and belying statements thus making her a person with no palabra de honor, Santiago is near the brink of becoming a schizophrenic.  

    She is assumptive in her ground that malacanang isn’t pleased with the leadership of Enrile, which only proves that she isn’t conscientious and knowledgeable as she used to project after all for assumption in law isn’t accepted as a ground.

    If he’s willing to yield the senate presidency, then resign and let the rest of the senators figure their places out. Puros pakipot, kapit-tuko naman sa pwesto. Kung sino-sino pa idadamay sa kadramahan. The sooner the country is rid of this old fascist, the better.

    I really doubt the intention of this John when he went against Ferdie. Is it really because Ferdie was bad or he was already dying? Coz if Ferdie was bad, why wait until he was dying before going against the old man? I hope the people in the Philippines will not easily forget their past. As blainz said, the sooner the better…

    I waited for the time that Sen. Enrile will be ousted.  Obviously, it has the blessing of pope Noynoy.
    Enrile has stored a lot of reliable info on his enemies…and I bet the man has no qualms on releasing it…INFORMATION is everything…that’s why pope Noynoy is way too careful.  Even if PORKY DRILON, and the rest of the gang is salivating on the senate presidency.

    BS Aquino X3 is treading on very volatile ground here. JPE has several cards under his sleeve on the irregularities of the 2010 canvassing that if revealed will put the legitimacy of BS into question.  However, Enrile was also a culprit by proclaiming BS as the winner in 2010 despite the irregularities and inaccuracies of the PCOS machines.  But, given JPE’s tendency to make a dying man’s confession when cornered, he might reveal what he knows.

    • boldyak

    Enrile should be smart enough to know that by opposing Aquino on any issue will result in being ousted or being attacked in some way. Corona was impeached. The media was and is attacked. And now your days as Senate President are numbered. No one is allowed to oppose Aquino in his government.

    • Jose Rizal

      He’s already opposing on the SIN TAX (that favoured Danding’s buisness) and the RH Bill, remember? Kaya nga ang lakas ng loob ni Traydor na Trillanes at iba pa, para isang sutsot lang ni Pnot, yari na si Enrile…
