Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.. JUNNY ROY/SENATE POOL

MANILA, Philippines – Senate President  Juan Ponce-Enrile rejected on Thursday the  idea of reconciling with Senator  Miriam Defensor-Santiago, saying it is difficult to  talk to people with “lunar minds.”

“Ayoko nang batiin yung ayaw sa akin e. Mahirap makipag-usap sa mga lunar minds,”  Enrile said in a radio interview, when asked  if he was ready to  patch  things up with Santiago.

(I no longer want to patch things up with those who don’t like me. It’s difficult to talk to people with lunar minds.)

And his tirade against Santiago went on.

This time, Enrile blasted Santiago for the latter’s alleged  absences in the Senate  in  almost half  of the session days  last year.

This was the reason, he said, he did not give  Santiago an additional P1.6 million MOOE (maintenance and other operating expenses) in December, 2012.

Santiago was among the four senators who only received the first tranche (P600,000)  of the  total P2.2 million additional MOOE released to all 23 senators in November last year.

“Hindi na sila binigyan. Binigay  ko na lang sa mga nagtatrabaho  na senador,”  Enrile said of the four senators who did not get the P1.6 million balance.

(They were not given the amount anymore. I gave it to the Senate workers.)

“ Si Miriam, hindi uma-attend sa caucus namin yan e. If you check the  records…e baka kalahati ng session days e wala sya run. Maliban na lang kung gusto niyang magpasikat. Noong impeachment trial nandun palagi,” he added, referring to the impeachment trial of  ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona.

(Miriam no longer attends our caucus. If you check the  records…she was absent half of the session days. She shows up only when she wants to brag. During the impeachment trial she was always present.)

Aside from Santiago, the three senators who did not get the P1.6 million fund were Senate Minority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano, Senators Pia Cayetano and  Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV.

    tumatandang paurong si enrile…. sino ba pumipilit sayo anyway para makipagbati? 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3RMNEZCQQHXWOQRXJROQ2CORFU Homer Guo

    as a senate president, name calling (lunar mind) is really cheap and uncalled for. parang bata na nakikipag away si enrile.

    • popeyee

      ganyan si enrile, pagnasusukol namimirsonal…

  • Jamm3r

    hahahahaha ang ganda ng bangayan, totoo naman kasing pasikat si inday miriam eh ang yabang masyado. ngayon lang nag iianarte sa coa eh noon pa ginagawa na yan. eh mahgit isang dekada na siyang senadora at ngayon lang siya nagpuputak?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZR7JI7G2WD2CTVMZ7LM667FD4 Ugly Bunny

      • hopeless_na

        oo nga. dapat noon pa sila nag-away. baka may nagawa na silang batas tungkol dyan.

    • popeyee

      at least pumutak at may guts..

      • speaksoftlylove

        Ngayon lang pumutak si Mirriam dahil ngayon lang siya binalasubas. Di siya nagalit dahil ninakawan si Juan ng harapharapan. Nagalit siya dahil kulang yong parte niya sa nakaw. Ganun lang kasimple yan. At least si Enrile hindi pumarte ng 1.6 million, pero si Mirriam may parte kahit papaano. Mangulembat ka ng isang sentimo o isang milyon pareho rin ang labas nyanb, pangungulembat din.

  • KpTUL

    Wala kaming pakialam sa away ng dalawang matanda. The point is Enrile, aba talo mo pa ang Citibank kung magbigay ka ng bonus. Hindi mo pera iyan ! Kapal mo !

    • generalproblem

      hindi po bonus yan additional budget yan mga mga senador sa kanilang committe.

      • popeyee

        Tapos na ang taon, bakit may additional pa? Meron pa ba silang “additional committee hearing” o additional travel abroad? Iba naman ang budget para 2013 a..

  • rayingga

     Both of them need to file a courtesy resignation, both of them need to do something a supreme sacrifice para matahimik na ang mundo ng senado. After all pareho naman silang nagpapagalingan, ayaw magpapalamang, ayaw masasapawan, ayaw maiwan. So ano ang dapat gawin magresign na lang.

  • Crysis_III

  • Marx Louis Wang

    “Luna minds” wow, bigat ng words ni manong!!! You better watch out because this “lunar minds” you are referring to is so DANGEROUS!!

  • Marx Louis Wang

    With this gift you gave, do you think the plot to remove you from the senate is still possible?

    “Hindi na sila binigyan. Binigay ko na lang sa mga nagtatrabaho na senador,” What “nagtatrabaho” does manong mean here?

    • popeyee

      nakakapagtaka nga, kasi umabot ng 18 senators ang nabigyan ng 1.6M.

  • 12JEM

    Hayaan na lang silang magsabi ng kung ano ang totoo sa bawat isa.  Maglabasan sila ng sama ng isa-t-isa.

    Buti nga para baka may lumabas na mabuti para sa bayan.

    Sa Senado kasi nagtatakpan sila riyan kaya dehado ang bayan.

Well, its UP’s legal mind at work, one is a constitutional law expert while the other has martial law expertise. While Enrile was complaining about the absences of Miriam he approve her leave of absence for health and medical reason. In her absence the senate became a boring chamber..hahummm. Manong huwag ka ang maiinis kay Miriam dahil kakainis at kakainip ang inyong mga mukha kung wala si Miriam…wahhhhh!!!!!

    They are colleague, argument happen inside that building its a part of the job its should not be taken personal.

    EXAMPLE: In a small kitchen brigade during busy service everybody’s shouting each other, the chef cursing to get the job done, but in the end they shake hands, everything move on like nothing happen. That what make countries great is the individual attitude & character.
    If a Senator is behaving like this what kind of society we are, napakalungkot at napakasakit isipin na ganito na ang aking minamahal na Pilipinas…. everything is almost in a bad state.

    • dodong1

      good observation…PDI EDITORS PLEASE PROOF READ BEFORE POSTING…

    • speaksoftlylove

      Enrile’s statement is correct. He gave it to all the Senate’s rank and file as an added bonus. Mabuti naman at nakinabang yong maliliit na empleyado. Para sa akin ok lang insofar as the added bonus of senate employees is concerned.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3QBMYPCCPWL5IDWF55BTBVWSAE UPLB-2008-3****

        Yup, he too gave the ‘rank and file’ bonuses, but if you know context clues, you get what I mean.

    Mr. Enrile still behaves as if the country is still under the martial rule. What ever he wants he will always get at whateverfucking cost.  

    I hope before this senile dies, somebody would file a case at the ICJ for all his atrocities during the martial law years. He must be made to pay for all his crimes.

    Until now, I still cannot comprehend why Filipinos continue to elect leaders that even all the negative words in the dictionary combined would fail in comparison. Mr. Enrile is a classic cornucopia of all the negative words.

  • Emmie_Lopez

    Santiago had long officially notified the Senate that she is sick and was even visibly being inspected by the Senate nurse for high blood during the impeachment trial …. she officially notifies Enrile. How about Enrile ?  Has he even admitted and repented for the many he authorized tortured and killed during martial law ?  He shouldnt even be in government. he should have long been jailed again and again for murder, torture, plunder and human rights violations.  No wonder he is a billionnaire and one of the countrys richest men. NOT FUN in the PHILIPPINES.

  • pinoyreacts

    “Binigay  ko na lang sa mga nagtatrabaho  na senador” doesn’t translate to “I gave it to the Senate workers”. Lunar mind din ata ang editor ng Inquirer!

    • speaksoftlylove

      You are the lunar mind. Enrile was simply saying that he gave the amount as an added bonus to all senate employees across the board. You want to verify it in the Senate records. go ahead? Read between the lines first before you ridicule anyone.

      • pinoyreacts

        Maybe the Filipino language has changed since I last spoke it (which is every day). Last time I checked, “Binigay ko na lang sa mga nagtratrabaho na senador” would be “I just gave it to the senators who are working” (in reference to Enrile’s remarks about Sen. Santiago’s absences). “I gave it to the Senate workers” would translate to “Binigay ko na lang sa mga nagtratrabaho SA SENADO” (which could also have double meaning). 

    • PiNewyorker

    Okey din ‘tong si Manong Jhonny. Parang presidente ng isang pribadong kompanya. Pinagbibigyan ng bonus ang kursonada niya at yung hindi niya kursonada ay inasar niya sa pagbibigay ng karampot na bonus… Kaso yung perang ipinamudmod niya sa mga senador ay galing naman sa pondo ng senado. Pwedeng isipin ninuman na iyon ay maaaring padulas para siya ay hindi makudeta. Parang ginisa sa sariling mantika ang mga senador at alaskado naman yung apat na senador… Ang tanong ay makatwiran kaya iyong ipamigay ni Manong Datang ang pera ng senado na galing naman sa pera ng bayan?  Pero sa itsura ay mukhang nasiyahan sa kanyang kalokohan ang matandang tila nagiisip bata na…

  • Rey

    Spitfire (ayaw gumana yung reply button sa message mo), the facts may be different (Alam naming pinagbibigyan din ang mga Senate employees.) pero ang pinag-uusapan ay yung translation ng Pilipino sentence to English, which was wrong.

    I’ll quote it again for you. Tignan mo kung tama nga ang translation: “Binigay ko na lang sa mga nagtatrabaho na senador” vs “I gave it to the Senate workers”.

    Gets mo?

    Oldies’ tantrums.
    Such behavior from Enrile renders him unfit for the senate presidency.
    Most probable reason why he’s trying so much to prevent himself from being dislodged from the post is to maintain influence, as his son Jackie is running for a senate post.

    • teekaye2

       Simple answer DONT VOTE FOR EITHER ENRILE or his Son

  • mabyrik

    Enrile is master of diversion to get the heat off his seat.

    During EDSA 1, he revealed Marcos asked him to cheat Cory in Cagayan to get the support of the people from marcos who was all out to get him and make him pay for being a grand traitor.  

    During his encounter with Trillanes, he diverted the issue from the Camsur division to Trillanes backdoor negotiation with China, even exposing state secrets to emphasize his points.

    In his auto-biography AKA Memoir, he twisted what had already been written many years ago to picture himself as superman, who can do no wrong.

    Enrile justified his giving taxpayers money to fellow senators as -“it is “gift, not bribe” as, if giving a gift consisting of millions of people’s money are his to dispense with in any way he pleases.

    And now he wants his son jackie, to become a senator too. Ano ba kasalanan natin at pinarurusahan tayo ng ng mga taong ganito.

     our nation now is in the semi state of chaos: the three branches of our government are headed by : 1 Congress; Enrile & Belmonte as klepto. 2 Supreme Court ; as a lunatic Sereno. 3 executive dept. BSA as a feeble minded executor. pity our nation.

    Old Enrile does not know what professionalism means. I thought that word existed in his time.

    I don’t see how his reasoning for Sen. Santiago not getting the bigger Christmas package could be used to explain the same for the Cayetanos.

    JPE is not hypocrite. the more na hindi siya plastic. that is why he speak his mind.  Lunar mind is a corfirmation of the word Brenda which is how people describe senator Santiago during her prsidential race with General Ramos. Sa sobrang talino ay muntik ng bumagsak sa BAR at gusto pa yatang magbigay ng lecture kay enrile. SANE VS. INSANE??
